A Fanion. Old Dlntrlcl In Idaho—
Nanitliir.'H In Montnnn—Tlie Centre
Slur Mine Sold for Tnu Million.—
Mill Itnn „ Fen* Hour*-—Mlnlng
Silver City, Idaho, had a wonderful
reputation for wealth a third of a century ago, when thc mines on Wur Kugl.!
mountain were producing an abundance
of gold, even with thc most primitive
methods of production and with the nearest railroad point hundreds of miles distant.
One of thc celebrated properties of this
(•amp which is still steadily producing
and paying dividends at a heavier rate
than the Le Koi of Uosslund ever did,
is thc Trade Dollar mine. It is making
regular shipments of ore in car lots that
will average away up in the thousands of
dollurs per ton in free gold. The Ulack
Jack and De Lamar are also well known
Wur Eugle properties which have produced steadily and paid dividends aggregating large sums.
A group of three properties which
made enormous records for production of
gold ore in the '00's and early 70"s comprises the Golden Chariot, Ida Klmore
and Oro Fino mines. It was not unusual
in these properties to encounter bundles
of ore in considerable qdantities averaging
over $5000 per ton. The Ida Elmore and
Golden Chariot were worked through
shafts to a depth of 1200 and 1500 feet, respectively, under primitive methods. Tlie
water wos ull hoisted out of these shafts
in buckets. Under modern methods of
mining these mines would have continued
work far beyond the depths, which, in
thoso days, were considered insuperable.
Ever since these mines have becn shut
down tlieir waste dumps have becn hand
sluiced at a profit, while the water season lasted, the fine stuff being washed
into rifile boxes and the coarse stuff
sorted by hand. Jn this manner thousands of tons of so called waste from
the mines have heen laboriously treated
nt a profit by thc slow and tedious processes of hand labor.
The Centre Star Sold.
The great Centre Star mine at Rossland was sold Saturday and it brought
the biggest price ever paid for a mining
property in the Kootenays. The price
wus $2,000,000, and it is a cash transaction. The purchasers are the Gooder-
ham-I'laekstock syndicate of Toronto,
who own the controlling interest in the
Wur Kagle Consolidated Mining and Development Company.
Of the 500,000 shares of the capital
stock, Oliver Durant and Alexander Tur-
bet of Salt Luke own 300,000 shnres, Sir
Charles ltoss, Dart, owns 30,000 shores,
and the Patrick Lorgey cstutc of Butte,
Mont., most of the remaining 100,000. It
is staled tliat Mr. Williamson hus invested $100,000 of his own money with the
Goodcrhiuu-niockHtoek syndicate in the
purchase of the Centre Star.
The deal reached ft climax Saturday,
when Volncy D. Williams of Spoknne on
behalf of his principals, went to the
Centre Star mine, took formal possession
and discharged Foreman Joyce and all
the employes.
The  Inei,.  Sun,.
R. A. Bell, it is said, has just acquired
control of ground supposed to bc rich in
gold near the celebrated Uncle Sum pocket, nbout four miles south of Helena,
.Mont. The funic of the golden pocket
of the Uncle Sum mine is world-wide. The
product of this deposit was so exceedingly rich that armed guards were employed to keep people from carrying off
the ore us it cumc from the shaft. Almost every piece of rock taken from the
mine showed- great quantities of free gold
in the quartz. But thc vein suddenly
pinched out and its continuation has
never been found, though it is being
hunted for to this day. The Uncle Sam
is located directly south of Helena about
four mill's and six miles northwest of
Clancy, and was possibly a sort of contact between the lime and grnnitc for*
ination, as there is a lime belt of three
or four miles in width between Helena
ond thc mine—though the Uncle Sam
shaft is certainly in granite formation.
A Mill Cloned.
The closing down of tlie Poorman mill
in l-'lorenco Camp, Idaho, after a short
run of a few hours has caused much comment from various sources, not only all
over the district, but among tlie stockholders in Tacoma ond outside points.
Portland stockholders havo deemed it
wise to send in a representative to ascertain just wherein the fault lies. It has
been staled lhat several hundred pounds
of tho ore were sent out for practical
treatment, and us a result a live stamp
Frazer & Chalmers mill was purchased
and set up, only to be pronounced a dead
failure by Mr. Buchanan, tlie expert mill
man, who has now gone to take chargo
of the Virtue mine at Baker City, Ore.
Rumor has it that thc management is now
ot 8ea as to jiiBt what kind of machinery
would be best adapted fer profitable
working of the Poorman ore.
Salable Sapphire..
Thomas Morgan, one of the owners of
the Pike County placer mine on Dry Cottonwood, in Deer Lodge county, Mont.,
received lust week from New York two
sapphires he had cut in that city. These
stones were two of a great muny secured
while doing some preliminary work this
summer und were sent to New York for
examination. The stones as returned are
certainly beauties. Tiffany & Co., thc
well known New York jowelers, report
them oil right and Bay ttiey can use them
if of larger size thun those sent for cx-
mniiiiution. Those sent were small, being of one carat or less in weight, and
wero only submitted for the purpose of
getting an expert report as to the quality.
The Pierce District.
Miners in the Pierce district are beginning to lay in their full and winter
supplies and Kendrick feels Uie effect of
the increased trude. C. E. Rummel, who
operutes a placer mine at Snake Creek,
said: "This has been a prosperous season
for the miners in the Pierce district, a
majority of tbem having mude paying
clean ups. We huve hud a good supply
of water und have succeeded in cleaning
up $1700. This has paid us good wages,
besides putting our mine iu shape for
bundling more dirt next seuson. This
full we will strip our dirt uml be in shape
to commence work in lhe spring. From
ull over the district 1 hoar most encouraging reports of tbe work being done und
believe thut with work resumed on the
Crescent mino und the development of
other properties this fall the Pierce district must forge uheod."

Guayama, Puerto RicOj Aug. 8.— (Correspondence of the Chicago Inter Ocean,
Aug. 15.)—Ever since Guayama was occupied, three days ago, the natives have
been demonstrative in praising the Americans, and in showing how delighted they
were at the retreat of the Spaniards. Today there came a change, whicli was not
at all surprising to those who know thc
character of the Puerto Rlcans.
It was just 1 o'clock this afternoon
when a horseman eame galloping into
towu shouting "Send the dynamite guns
at once. The Fourth Ohio is being annihilated."
ln less than five minutes tlie alarm had
spread throughout tho town and the
streets were filled with soldiers hurrying
to their quarters.
llie natives disappeared as if by magic,
not a single one of them remaining in
sight. Shutters were hurriedly put up
on all the shops that were open, thc hack
men rushed tlieir horses to tlieir stables
and everywhere the natives showed by j
tlieir actions that they anticipated tho re-
capture of the town by the Spaniards.
Tho fears of some of the women led
them to seek protection in the cathedral, |
where they spent the time in prayer. The
whole incident showed how little reliance
can be placed in the sincerity of pro-
American protestations of the natives.
Itnn   Into  lin   A in liu Men <te.
The Spanish attack grew out of the
fact that Colonel Cult, Major Dean and
Lieutenant Wardman. the latter of General Brooke's staff, had, with Companies
A and C of the Fourth Ohio, started early in the morning to reconnoiter to the
northward, with the object of ascertaining the truth of the reports that the
Spaniards had mined the bridges on the
road to Cayey, whither General Brooke's
command is bound.
Knowing thc sraallness of the reconnoi-
toring party, the report that they had
been attacked by the Spaniard* caused
much excitement at the Guayama headquarters. *
A strong force was at once hurried to
Die front. There were no horses to haul
the dynamite guns, and the men buckled
to and dragged them over the hills for
five miles to the scene of action.
On the way several straggling private?
of Company.C were met. They reported
tliat that company and Company A had
been practically annihilated by Spanish
artillery. They declared that they were
too tired to fight any more.
It was also reported that Captain Bid-
die of Company C had been wounded in
tlie engagement, but it was subsequently
learned that he had becn overcome by
the heat.
At 2 o'clock thc reinforcements reached
a turn of the road and the whole scene of
tlie engagement lay before them. They
stood directly on the spot where the first
ambuscade had boen made. Thc road
here took a sudden turn to the right,
while 1100 yards further on it made a
quick turn to the left. Thus thc marching troops were exposed at both turns
to lire from the hills on either side.
Span In ni**    He hi ml    lOurth-tVurkN.
Tho Spaniards were about 000 yards
away. They were entrenched on one
side behind a blockhouse and on the other
behind earthworks located on thc top of
a hill.
Nothing but a shallow ditch on thc left
side of the road had saved the American
troops, for that thc fire had been blistering hot there was shown by thc trees,
the leaves and boughs of whioh had been
torn away by the Spanish shot.
For the greater part of two hours the
Americans lay in the ditch, the Spaniards
meanwhile directing a hot fire against
them but not attempting to cha.'jje them.
A 'stampede was started in Company C
by the collapse of Captain Riddle* who
was prostrated by tlie heat. When he
fell it was generally believed that lie had
been shot.
Tho effect on the men might have been
serious had it not been for Lieutenant
Wardman, who assumed command of thc
company and fought gallantly through
tho engagement. As soon as thc reinforcements arrived he pressed on with
his men to the top of the lull.
Some time before this the enemy had
stopped their cross fire, but as soon o«
the Americans climbed the hill the Spaniards opened a hut fire from the blockhouse. Tho Americans rushed through
thc hail of bullets toward the blockhouse,
and the Spaniards started to retreat.

There seems to be a disposition on
Ihe purt ot the government officials who
have charge of the roads of this district
to pay no attention whatever to requests
for tepairs to the roads and trails until
some serious accident occurs and makes
a recognition of the state of affairs absolutely unavoidable, or until the residents
in the vicini'j* ot the particular piece of
road get to work and repair it themselves in sheer desparation.
Time and again have the officials been
notified of the necessity for repairs to
various roads in this immcdiite vicinity
and, excepting for a few instances
whero private individuals performed the
work which should have been looked after by the officials, the roads are now in
worse condition than ever.
A.4 a particular case in view may be
mentioned that of the road between this
place and the Jobuson ranch, or the old
free ferry, which is in such a condition
that it is now almost impossible to get
.through with a team owing to the road
bed having caved away until there is
not the width of a wagon left; aud in
this particular place an accident means
an almost certain drop ot between thirty
and feet inlo Kettle river.
j. A. Schubert, the provincial road
supervisor was in the city recently and
his attention was called to the danger of
traveling this piece of road in its present condition, he even had to pass over
it himself on his way out of town, but
lie paid no attention to the matter whatever, going on through to the vicinity of
Christina lake where he was to inspect
the Dewdney trail which is said to be in
very bad condition.
True he may be back in the course of
the next two or three weeks and perhaps even at that late date have a few
shots put in at the side ol the road so as
to widen the road bed, but in the meantime all who travel ovcr this piece of
road must take their lives in their
hands, and ten chances to one while he
is making up his mind to do something
there will be a serious accident at this
point, some one will be killed and the
'government will have a big damage
suit on its hands.
It is a deplorable {act that the petty
offices ot this government are only too
often placed in the hands of persons
whose whole effort while in office seems
10 be to do as little as possible to hold
their jobs beyond drawing their salaries
and getting on tbe outside of as much
"brandy and sody, in a long glaws
please," as possible.
A letter has been received trom J. C.
Tuns'all, the mining recorder at Vernon, stating that he has been asked to
get up an exhibit of minerals from what
was the old East Riding of Yale district, Boundary district, for the New
Westminster exhibition and asking the
co-operation of the mine owners and
prospectors of this section in the project. Mr. Dinsmore ur Mr. Almond will
furnish sacks and tags on application so
all that will be necessary is to procure
these and send in your samples.
The people of this section should take
.1 great interest in any enterprise of this
Character as nothing advertises a mining
distiict more than a well arranged and
classified exhibit ot its representative
ores. The main trouble with collecting
such an exhibit is thc fact that each one
stands back apd waits for some one else
to take the initiative and as a consequence nothing is done. This has been
the case with this district on former occa
sions and we sincerely hope it will not'
be on this. Let each one lend in the
best specimens he can regardless of what
others may do and we will be represented,

the citizens of this place as rather incongruous! more especially so as Mr,
Wilgress has nothing whatever to say
in the final locating of the line, tbat
matter being very properly left to the
head officials of the road, and further as

Bank of Montreal Will Start
a Branch.
But the Location Has Not Been Definitely Decided Upon as Yet.
—Officials Here,
Mr. Campbell Sweeney, general manager of the Bank of Montreal for tbe
Province with headquarters at Vancouver, f. C. Fraser, manager of the
Bank of Montreal at Rossland, and
Ross Thompson and Hector McRae,
of Rossland, arrived in the city Friday
of last week and after spending a clay
here enquiring into the business outlook of the future left late Saturday afternoon for Greenwood, where they met
G. A. Henderson, manager of the Bank
of Montreal at Vernon, on Sunday. The
object of the visit of these bank officials
at this time is for the purpose of making
a careful investigation of the business of
this section and reporting on the advisi-
bility of establishing a branch in the
Boundary country and the location of a
place for the same.
In conversation with Mr. Sweeney that
gentleman stated that the aim of the
bank will be to establish their branch at
the most centrally located point iu the
district so the banking business of the
entire section, and of reservation points
-as well may be accommodated. Just
where that point would be was a question tbat would be decided by the head
officials at Montreal upon the receipt of
his report, which would be made on his
return to Vancouver, and then not until
he had gone carefully over the situation
with Messrs. Fraser and Henderson.
After spending a day or two looking
over the business prospects and advantages of Greenwood and vicinity
Messrs. Sweeney and Henderson
left for Pentieton on their way home,
Hector McRae returned to Rossland
and Ross Thompson and Mr. Fraser
went to Republic via Midway.
The two latter were in the city again
last Thursday on tbeir way back to Rossland and in conversation with a Miner
reporter stated positively that nothing
had been decided upon, but that the object of their trip was limply to male a
report on the matter to the head office
where the final decision would be made.
During the week a report bad been
brought over here from Greenwood to
the effect that the bank officials had purchased two lots and made arrangements
for the rent of a building, and that the
bank would open a branch there at once.
This report was also absolutely denied,
saying that no lots had been purchased
and that none would be at present, as it
was invariable the rule of the bank not
to purchase any property in towns that
are not fully established.
The gentlemen seemed very favorably
impressed with the advantages of Grand
Forks as a point for the establishment
of a banking business on account of its
central location, as a bank situated here
would be about equi-distance to all points
of importance in the district, and would
also command the Business of Republic
and other reservation points, while one
at any other point would lose the business of a part of the towns on account
of the distance, and difficulties of communication.
Tbey went on through the same evening to Cascade so as to be in shape to
drive to Bossburg in time to catch the
train Friday, it being absolutely imperative to get back home on that date.
Beaven Retires   aod  Semlin  Will Nov
Try His Hand at Govemmeat.
Another change bas taken place in
the political situation at Victoria and
tbe opposition will now have another
chance to try its hand at forming a government without having to appeal to the
people for a more decided expression of
popular opinion as to the merits of their
leaders. Robt. Beaven, having found it
impossible to form a government, has
been retired and Mr. Semlin, the alleged leader of the opposition has been
called upon to take hit place and prove
whether or not he ii the leader he claims
to be.
That he will succeed in forming a
government seems beyond a doubt as
Mr. Cotton and Joe Martin (not Jim) hii
only opponents of any importance, bave
accepted portfolios in hit cabinet; but
whether or not Mr. Semlin's government can control a working majority in
the houie is a question only to be decided when the assembly meets next
In the event that a majority can not
be ihown by the opposition, and it is
very doubtful if it can, a new appeal to
the electors wilt be absolutely necessary, in fact it is necessary now and is
only held or by the most strenuous efforts of the oppositionists who hope to
win over a few members who bave
never been extraordinary warm govern
ment supporters, and thus avoid another
election ia which they know full well
they would have very little chance of
getting into power.

Government Oflidals Making Their Regular Rounds ot the Province.
Wm. Gill, Inspector of Inland Revenue, J. E. Miller, collector of Ii.land
Revenue, and H. Findley, government
inspector of weights and measures, were
in the city last Tuesday on their regular
tour of inspection through the province
in the pursuunce of their duties, and
while here inspected the brewery, the
various scales of the city and tbe electric light plant.
Mr. Miller carries with him a government meter for the testing of electric
light plants. According to the laws of
tbe province, all electric light companies are required to register, the fee
for whicb is regulated by the size of the
plant, those of a capacity of 1,000 lights
or less being roquired to pay an annual
fee of $10, while tbose of a capacity of
over 1,000 lights a fee of $25, which
entitles the company to the free use of
tbe government meter, whicb has been
adopted as the standand for tbe province,
A test was made both at tbe Victoria
hotel and at the power house and in both
instances the current exactly came up to
the requirements, registering 52-volts or
as near that as it is possible to get. Mr.
Miller expressed great surprise at tbe
accuracy obtained by City Electrician
Anderson in the adjustment of the system as he has with nothing to guide him,
it being a very exceptional case where
a new plant comes up to the requirements on the first test.
Mr. Gill informed a representative of
the Miner that a area of prosperity was
extending all over the provience and
especially in the mainland where there,
was a marked improvement in all lines
of business. Mr. Gill also spoke in the
highest terms of the condition of affairs
as he found them at the Grand. Forks
brewery and was loud in his praise of the
management of that concern.
Messrs. Gill and Miller left via Wednesday's stage for Rossland where they
will test the light plant and inspect the
various breweries of tbat city.

Robert  Roberts His Life—
Austin Will Recover.
An accident occurred in the shaft at
the Old Ironsides mine Tuesday forenoon which resulted in the losing of the
life of Robert Roberts and the almost
miraculus saving of the life of a tnao by
the name of Austin, who with Roberts
was overcome by gas at the 200 loot
level of the mine.
As nearly as can be learned it appears that Roberts and his shift partner,
a man by the name of Pierce, were operating a machine in the crosscut from
the 200 foot level and bad set off a
round of holes at about eh ven o'clock,
almost an entire box of dynamite being
used. Roberts who was a very energetic little fellow, became impatient at
the delay occasioned by waiting for the
drift to clear of smoke and gas and
started down in company with Austin
who was doing the mucking, to connect
up the pump which keeps the dritt clear
of water.
Shortly after their arrival at the bottom
Pierce who was up above, heard Austin
call out: "Come down here! This man
is hurt." He at once called back but received no answer, Austin himself having been overcome by this time. Pierce
went down to the drift but saw nothing
of the men, the water having raised in
tbe mean time until the drift was almost
full. Starting in he stumbled over a
body which proved to be that of Austin. Dragging that to a muck heap be
grouped around and found Roberts who
he also dragged above tbe water level.
By this time be himself was almost
overcome and had barely strength
enough left to drag himself into the
bucket and signal to be raised. When
he reached the top he was so weak tbat
he could only whisper what had happened. The foreman then went down
and coming to Austin's body first loaded it unto the bucket and sent it up taking Roberts up with him.
Everything possible was dene to re-
cussitate the unfortunate men, a doctor
being at onco summoned from Greenwood, but in spite of every effort Roberts succumbed to the poisonous gas.
At last accounts Austin was still suffering from tbe effect of the gas but was
beyond all danger and expected to be ut
work by this time.
Roberts was a Welshman, by birth,
but has relatives in New Rockland,
Quebec. He had been engaged in mining all through the Kootenays and Slo-
cans before coming here and was a first
class workman. He was employed at
the the Pathfinder for a short time last
winter and had a number of friends in
this city and vicinity.
An inquest was held in Greenwood on
Wednesday and the body was interred
on Thursday pending tbe receiving of
word from his friends in Ihe east as to
what disposition shall be made of it.
Roberts was a great friend of Hugh
Thomas, who was killed in the shaft on
the Snowshoe last month, coming from
tbe same town, and rumor says being
engaged to marry Thomas' sister. He
was intending to quit the Ironsides the
first of next month and return east with
Thomas' body.
Kick on Poll Tax.
Harry Sheads is having a most enjoyable time these days, he doesn't think,
for to Harry is entrusted the momentous
task of seeing that the dogs of the city
are properly represented in the coffers
of the municipality by a big iron dollar
or a two dollar bill as the case may be;
and that the male inhabitants of the
city of the age of eighteen years or more
contribute their proper pioportion ot
the tax on living, moving and having
their being within the corporate limits
of the municipality of Grand Forks.
For the past few days be has been out
early and late with his big mitt and his
little receipt book collecting the dog
taxes and poll taxes for the city and as
a consequence of his experince his
usual smiling face is now seared with
deep lines of care and even a passing
stranger can see that he is a man with
troubles of bis own, and the worst of it
all is that be is himself tbe whole police
fores of the city and consequently can
not seek the usual solace of the troubled
in a metropolitan town and tell his
troubles to a policeman.
Harry Bays he has no difficulty whatever in procuring the necessary dog
taxes but when it comes to putting up
for poll taxes the man who bas just paid
so cheerfully for his dog turns purple
with surprise and anger and declares
that he is being robbed. Many have
refused to pay and more are trying the
scheme of dodging the collector but
there remains but one way out of it, all
must pay their poll taxes, or they will
have to be collected by law process.
Nothing in It.
Considerable street talk was created
here during the week by the report, originating no one knew where, that tbe
stage lines centering in tbis place were
to at once remove their terminus to
Cascade City, and that the Forks was to
be shut out all around. This rumor was
traced up and found to have been the
product of the fertile imagination of
some of our citizens who seem to have a
peculiar faculty for that sort of thing.
The only possible toundation for the
Story is found in the fact tbat the stage
company has been contemplating a
change in the Republic stage whereby
that would run all the way through to
Bossburg, wbich would necessitate the
stage going through to Cascade at night
instead of stopping here, and also a
change of time on the Republic line—
tbe present Bossburg line being abolished entirely. It car, be authoritively
stated, however, that nothing definite
has been decided upon even in this
proposition, and the stage company has
never intended removing tbeir terminus
Irom this point, either to Cascade 01* any
other place.

Might Have Been Serious.
The Bossburg stage had last Thursday evening what was only an extremely
narrow escape from a most serious accident and that no one was injured was
not the fault of the government officials
who have charge of the road work in
tbis section as they have allowed the
roads between here and the old free
ferry to get into a condition which is a
positive danger to every one who is
forced to travel over it.
As the stage was coming in last
Thursday evening it struck a place in
the rock cut just this side of the McCool
ranch, where the road had been cut
away by the heavy traffic which constantly goes on over it until there is
barely room for a wagon to pass by running one wheel up onto the bank on the
inside of tbe track.
In the dark this place was not noticed
until the two outside wheels were over
tbe bank and the stage tilted up throw
ing out one of tbe passengeas who fortunately caught a wheel and thus escaped being precipitated into the river,
which at tbis point runs very deep and
strong about thirty feet below. Some
of the baggage was also thrown off but
was recovered bofore going into the
river, and the stage was by careful
maneuvering got back onto the road
and proceeded on its way into the city.
Had the stage been a few inches further out nothing could have prevented
its going down into tbe river and as
there were a number of passengers,
among them being a lady, loss of life
would have been almost certain.
The attention of Mr. Schubert, the
provincial road supervisor has been
called to tbis piece of road and he himself passed over it this week but witb
the usual high and mightiness of most
of our petty officials he refuses to pay
any attention to the necessity for repairs until it is forcibly brought to his
notice by an accident wheie somebody
is seriously hurt.

Manila Before the Kewa «i Peace
A rrl* ed.
New York, Aug. HI. - A special to the
Tribune from   Washington  s&ysi
Cable ooniuiunlcation with Manila will
probably be re-eitabliahed within the
next day or two, if the efforts of thia
government, supported by those of Gre.it
Britain and Spain, arc successfully direct-
ed, in order that further bloodshed may
In1 averted and the suspense relieved.
Jt te understood that Admiral Dewey
has been in possession of the Philippine
end of the cable for over two months, although lie was unable to secure the legal
terminus of the line, which is located
within llie city of Manila, and, through
the strict construction placed upon the
rules of neutrality, his operators were unable to secure any response to their signals from the Hong Kong terminal. This
restriction made necessary the frequent
Bending of dispatch boats back and forth
to Hong Kong and recently the severed
end of the cable has been buoyed and no
attention paid to it.
order*** Sent Saturday.
On tlie vessel that started for Manila
Saturday from Hong Kong went orders to
restore submarine telegraphic communication nt once, and, as'the American
forces, by the terras of tlie protocol, are
in possession of the Philippines from an
international standpoint*, whether they
actually hold the municipality or not,
nnd as hostilities have been formally terminated and the requirements of neutrality abolished, all obstacles to the
free use of the cable havo been removed.
Until Manila is in closer touch with
the rest of the world than it has heen
for the last three and one-half months,
officials in Washington will be harassed
by tho gravest anxiety regarding the occurrences in that vicinity. The last news
from Manila was dated 10 days ago and
described thc fierce fighting at Malatc on
July 31, when the Americans hehl their
position which had been assaulted. August
;i there was cannonading all day. The
Monterey arrived August -1 wiih three
transports of the third expedition and at
the snme time the dispatch vessel left
preparations were being made for an immediate assault upon thc city. It was
known that General Merritt wns only
waiting these reinforcements to demand
the surrender and give formal notice of
n naval bombardment. Under these circumstances every precaution was taken
last Friday to inform Admiral Dewey ninl
General Merritt wilh the least possible
delay of the formal signing of the protocol and the suspension of hostilities.
Mny Get Orders Today.
When the protocol was signed, followed
immediately by the sending of cable dispatches to Admiral Dewey nnd General
Merritt, it was broad daylight Sal unlay
morning at Manila. It takes fully a minute at the most generous calculation to
send a single word to Hong Kong by cable. Acting Secretary Allen and Adjutant General Corbin each sent several
hundred words of instructions to the respective commanders under them, including copies of the president's proclamation,
and it is therefore unlikely that the vessel wns able lo start before Saturday afternoon. Manila is 028 miles from Hong
Kong and at 18 knots the distance might
Im- made iu 'M) hours, which would enable
the dispatches to reach the American
forces Monday morning, or according to
Washington, Sunday night.
Unless Genera] Merritt had taken Manila by that time the instructions sent
him will prevent any further military operations nnd a truce will have to he agreed
upon similar in all respects to that Imposed upon General Miles In Puerto Rico.
The official messages relate solely to hostilities and have no bearing upon thc
third article of the protocol, which provides that the United States hold tlie
Oity, bay and liarlmr of Manila until the
mooting of the commissioners.
This is an exceedingly peculiar feature
of llie situation, but it gives the authorities less concern than the fear of further
fighting. That article was worded in accordance with the president's original
proposition two weeks ago, which iu turn
had been when there was momentary ex*
pc-eiation that the starved out. city would
surrender nt once, and it was evident
that the United States forces would remain in power in the Philippines. It was
therefore considered unnecessary to slipu*
late that a commission should be appointed within 10 days to arrange the details
of evacuation, ns was the case with Cuba
and Puerto Rico.

Results so far indicate that the yield

Superiority of Northern Races Over
(he I.iitliiH In Till, l'nrtleulur.
The Saxon and the Celt, the Teuton
and the Norseman—which merely is to
say the blue-eyed people—possess a ca-
paclty fur marksmanship none of the
butin races ever may hope to attain. It
isn't a Spaniard's fault that he cannot
lire a bullet straight. He can't help it.
Ile was born than way. lie has a racial
defect in far vision. The trouble js seated
in his eyes, and against a blue-eyed antagonist he must always be the loser
when it comes t.o scoring at a target
at fairly long range. Neither can tlie
Indian or the negro shoot so as to make
it good betting that ho is going to hit
anything, They mean well, but they
won't do.
What it is about tlie blue-eyed man
whicli renders his far-sight superior to
thut of his dark-eyed consin oculists are
not agreed upon. They have not satisfactorily determined whether his advun-
lage. is derived from a pigment which
clarifies thc vision or whether the shape
of his lenses is somewhat dilTcrcnt, furnishing him a greater range of sight and
a more magnified picture of distant ob-
ects, but rjegardlng the fact itself they
have long since ceased contention.
All the historic marksmen of record—
from Natty lluni]io to Captain llogardus
—have blue or hazel eyes. Look over
tho long list of western "killers" who
nourished in the frontier days, now passed
away, and you will recall thut the invincible ones, those who were quickest
on the trigger and who never missed their
man, were blue-eyed, Hilly thc Kid,
Wild Hill, Bat Mustci-son and Jesse
James—good men nnd bud, sheriirs upholding the law und desperadoes defying
it—hud eyes as blue us the undecked sky
of June. The Tennessee mountaineers
who from behind Jackson's cotton bales
poured so witherin a fire into Put-ken*
hum's scarlet coated veterans thnt even
thut Intrepid soldiery could not endure it,
und lied from its fiery breath ns from
before the mouth of a furmu-c were blue*
eyed riflemen.
Every regimental ollicer of experience
and every gun club man knows thut the
records of target practice will show the
blue-eyed mau well in the lead over their
dark-eyed fellows, and the longer thc distance the mure marked become tho disparity.
When Goneral Shafter has fully dis*
embarked his forces upon Cubun soil;
when lhe ping of the Mauser gives answer
to fhe hiss of the long bullet of thc Krug-
Jotgensen tho world will no doubt be afforded nnother object lesson of thc inability of the Jjatin to shoot straight. The
Spaniards have the arms, but not thc
main—their "Aeneid"' would perforce begin differently from Virgil's.
Tho Spaniard—and the Cuban as well,
for the samo reason—is a cutter and a
slasher. Ile favors cold steel in battle,
and with cutlass or machete becomes at
close range a formidable foe. It is to
Spain that tlie world owes the invention
of fencing, an art not yet 300 years old,
which transformed the mediaeval sword
into a shield and buckler as well as spear
and dagger. Thc Italian, who also cannot shoot, perfected the system, and is
today the muster fencer of the world. It
would seem thnt the dnrk eye has indeed
its own superiority of vision, as close
range. Take note that thc master billiard players—those whoso excelling delicacy of touch is at onee a joy and a
marvel to look upon—arc dark-eyed men,
as are the fencers.
But tho battles on Cuban or Puerto
Rican soil are not to be fought with
steel. There the blue-eyed troops who
sprang from the northern races will make
war against their swarthy foes at rifle
range, and they should havo the better
of it by inalienable birthright.

hawks circling about each oilier and
dropping rapidly to tho earth next attracted his attention. The birds fell almost at his feel and continued lo fight
wllh great ferocity. It was evident
from the very start lhat tbe battle was
a very unequal one, Hie gray bird being
much too heavy tor his opponent. The
farmer scl/.lug a stick sailed in to take
a hand In the light. He made several
vigorous swipes at the rapldlv revolving bundle of claws and feathers, but
somehow or other bo always failed to
land. Then be foxily decided to stand
off and wait until one bird bail been
killed, whereupon be would Jump In

wus growing weaker every moment,

Ihe gray victor drove bis beak deep Inlo

settlcil that Ambassador Hay is to succeed Secretary Day when the latter becomes chairman of thc peace commission.
The authority for this statement is unofficial, but from a source whicli shows
that such is tlio determination of thc

The indications are that Secretary Day's
resignntion-from the state department will
be in and accepted within a week. It is
understood tliat the president contemplates the appointment of Secretary Day
to a circuit judgeship after tlie work of
thc peace commission has been finished.

" Deah Mrs. Pinkham:—I feel like a
new person since following your advice, and think it ls my duty to let the
public know the good your remedies
have done me. My troubles were painful menstruation and leucorrhoea I
was nervous and had spells of being
confused. Before using your remedies
1 never had any faith in patent medicines. I now wish to say that I never
had anything do me so much good for
painful menstruation as Lydia li. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound; also would
say that your Sanative Wash has cured
me of leucorrhoea. 1 hope these few
words may help suffering women."

of the correspondence department of
her great business, treating by letter
es many as a hundred thousand ailing
women during a single year.
