Kingston, June 20.—The steamers
llowdln, Jamaica and Brooklyn arrived
here today and report haviug puBsed, in
Windward passage last night, 24 American vessels heading southward.
Washington, June 20— Xo douht is entertained at either the war or navy department that Shatter's expedition has
arrived safely off Santiago by this time.
Aa a matter ol fait, it is believed the
lirst transports arrived near the blockading Ileet Saturday night.
According to lhe plans arranged fur debarkation, tire Ileet of transports was to
lay in a safe position until Sampson
cleared the way for a landing. The selection of a landing place has been left
entirely to the judgment of Shafter and
The first business in order upon Ihe
arrival of transports off Santiago would
bo a war council between Sampson and
some of his naval captains on the one
hand and Shatter and his staff on tire
other, the purpose being to settle all the
details of the debarkution. Meanwhile
the fleet of transports would lie out fit
sea at least 10 miles beyond the blockading squadron, in order to be entirely
safe from attack of the Spanish torpedo
'llie work of debarking thc troops is
not to Iw one of hours, but rather of
days, according to tho opinion of army
officers. A grent deal depends upon the
point selected for the landing. It is
thought Hint Aguidorcs, east of Morro
eastle, would be a likely landing place,
in view of thc fact that it has a wharf
which would bo extremely useful for
landing the heavy supplies and ordnance
of the siege train.
lllo.vn Up liy Spaniards.
Cincinnati, Ohio, June 20.—TJie finishing department of the King Powder Company, in Warren county, was destroyed
Inst night in a manner leading lo the belief it was the work of enemies of tlie government. The building, in which was a
quantity of smokeless powder, had evidently becn fired by two* men near midnight, one of them being bady burned.
Tlie injured man was taken into custody.
Ho is apparently a foreigner, but so badly
injured lie ean scarcely' talk. The oompany has a contract to supply the government, and this is thought the reason
the destruction was attempted.
President AffulniUdo.
Chicago, June 2.—A special cable today
from a Record correspondent with Dewey's fleet reads as follows:
"Hong Kong, June 20.—(icneral Filipino officially proclaimed a provisional
government in outer Cavite June 12.
There were great ceremonies, and a declaration of independence was read renouncing Spanish authority. Aguinaldo
was made president and Don Pironilo vice
president. Tlie insurgents' government
will not oppose American protectorate or
occupation. Thc Baltimore sailed today
to meet the Charleston and the troop
ships. The French warship I'ascal arrived
June 15. The warship Kaiser is expected
Five Thoanand Prisoners.
Hong Kong, June 20.—U. S. S. Znflro,
which has just arrived here, brought
news from Manila, under date of June 17,
from which it appears the insurgents now
hold 4000 Spaniards and 1000 natives as
prisoners, together with tlieir arms. The
insurgents also captured on June 14 the
town of Oalanga, the place next in importance to Manila on thc bay. Frequent
fires have occurred at Manila, and at Mn-
Thirty carbineros who attempted to desert from the Spanish forces June 16 wero
arrested and shot.
Aguinaldo informed Consul Williams of
the formation of tlie provisional government merely for cohesive purposes and
notified him of the desire of the insurgents that the Philippines become an
American colony.
The Spaniards have sunk the cruiser
( VImi so as to obstruct the passage of the
l'aflig river.
No Release for Hobson.
Wellington, June 20.—The following
dispatch was received today from Commodore Watson: "Captain (Jeneral Blanco states tliat the Spanish government
refuses to exchange Hobson and his men."
The refusal of the Spanish officers to
exchange Hobson causes a disagreeable
feeling here. While there is not a positive
obligation upon the belligerents to exchange prisoners, yet it is the universal
practice in civilized warfare. -In the cane
of Hobson, his rank as assistant constructor, which is equivalent to lieutenant of the junior grade, should be the
sole basis for his exchange, yet it is obvious to the authorities here that the Spaniards hold him, not as a lieutenant, but
as a popular idol of the United Stales. In
this respect his detention ceases to be
that of a prisoner of war and becomes one
of a hostage.
Foreign  Warships   Moving*.
St. Thomas, June 20. — The Italian
cruiser Giovanni llausan left today for
St. Lucia. Thc British cruiser Intrepid

Time at  Honolulu.
Victoria, B. C, June 18.—Advices today per steamer M iuwei a from Honolulu. "June 10, any:
Tlie United States transports City of
Peking, City of Sydney nnd Au.strulia arrived here together on the 1st instant.
The voyage down was pleasant nnd the
vessels traveled abreast most of the way,
nlthough it was necessary for the Peking
and Australia to slow up and wait for
the City of Sydney.
Eight cases of meanlcs broke out on
the Australia. The sick men were separated from the other passengers on the
ship hy being quartered on the hurricane deck and the surgeons had the cases
well in hand when the vessels arrived.
As soon as the three vessels were
sighted all Honolulu turned out to welcome the soldiers. The docks were lined
with people and as the vessels entered
the harbor thc spectators yelled themselves hoarse. Such a scene of enthusiasm had never been witnessed in Honolulu.
When the vessels docked it was late,
so the order wus given to allow no one
ashore, but the next morning about hulf
the troops were allowed to land. During
the day they were given the freedom of
the city. The men visited Walkiki and
other points of interest and had a pleasant time generally.
At noon President Dole and his cabinet received the officers of the expedition.
During tlie reception the steamers and
the grounds of the executive building
were thronged with people.
On June 3 the soldiers wero entertained on the grounds of the executive building. President Dole was on hand to welcome them. The utmost freedom prevailed, the affair being very informal.
To each man the chief executive gave a
word of welcome to Honolulu. An outdoor luncheon was served hy the ladies
of the city.
Tlie transports left for Manila on the
4th. 'Hie Charleston steamed outside and
waited for the Ileet, which got away
about 10 o'clock, with the Charleston in
the rear. While the vessels were in port
they took in the neighborhood of 1000
tons of coal.
Of the 2000 men among the various vessels, but two desertions were recorded
and they are from an Oregon regiment.
Two other men were left behind, one being discharged for disabilities and the
other is in a local hospital.

June 18.—-The week's campaign ill eastern Cuba has resulted in thc practical demolition of the outer fortilications of
Santiago, in anticipation of the arrival
of the troops, and the occupation of tire
fine harbor of (iunntnnnmo in which today arc anchored such magnificent ships
as thc Oregon and St. Paul, together witli
the Marblehead, Dolphin, Suwanee and 11

I of 17 fathoms of water.
Thc military resistance to delluite occupation ia practically closed since tire
bombardment of Wednesday.
An intercepted oflioial- report of thc
Spanish military commander indicates
that his military resources are exhausted. His soldiers are now on half rations.
There are supplies only for the remainder of June. Tire commandant has already seized all private drug supplies, in
order that they may lie bestowed to the
use of the soldiers.

Guantanamo, June 4.—Noon (via Kingston Jamaica. Wednesday, June 17.).—How-
ever unpleasant -Lhe experience, the landing ot a small detachiment of marines,
mostly raw men, In the enemy's country
has laugrht some lessons to'the officers
nnd men here, and possibly, also to the
authorities at Wodh'lneton. It has shown
the Spaniards to be daring bush fighters,
and It has proven that every American
camp must ho com-p-actly built and as well
protected to resist night attacks a-s though
ln the Apaohe country. It has developed
several small defects in the navy guns
under service conditions, and It has shown
that, given a free rein wiuh repeating
rifles, GOO nervous troops can waste 10,000
rounds of ammunition, killing shadows, ln
a single night, and think even then that
thoy have done much shooting. Though
the 16 Spaniards found by Lieutenant
Neville's men wore regular uniforms,
mosit of those seen In the dayllgiht attacks
wore scircely anything except big plantain leaven bound around their foreheads
In lieu of hats. This acted as an effective
disguise In the bush. Others, stripped to
a pair of dirt-colored trousers, tied
branches around their waists, reaching
shoulder high, and moving: cautiously
they could even croas open ground without being defected, thougih some ot them
were caught at the game.
Another -trick was to make a moving
screen of two or three big palm leaves,
almost Impossible to detect where sirrnlo.l
palm everywhere rises out of the' chaparral.

>.-hn   From   Keltic   Fall*,.
George  Maghaughoy  of  Rossland   is
making arrangements to start a half-way
bouse between Kettle Falls and Republic.
The stage from Republic to Kettle Falls
has been already started and runs li
miles, where the transfer is made to saddle horses for crossing the Bummit.
Some parlies in Kettle Falls who have
claims, which they ore anxious to get
upon, on tlie lower half of the reservation,
ore keeping saddled horses ready to make
a rush for them on the first notice of tire
ground being thrown open.
HiHluclna* -Slxe of Claims.
A movement is on foot in the house at
Washington, I). C, to reduce the present
legal dimensions of a mining claim about
one-half. It is asserted thut if a mining
claim is good, whether it he of gold or
silver, JUKI by 750 feet is large enough for
any one individual; if it is not, a goorl
olaim, then it is more than uny miner
wants. Thc greatest foe to mineral do-
vciopinent in nny state, it is asserted, is
the excessive number of claims lield by a
few persons. A bill has been prepared to
compel every mine owner to work out liis
assessment and to allow no man to hold
more than one lode or placer mine at a
time, and reduce the Hi/.c of all claims to
300 by 750 feet.
Dolus*   Ahmchiho, 1   Work.
The committee on mining alFnirs of the
house of representatives Iras had its attention called to statements made by
prominent citizens of Whatcom county,
Washington, whose names for obvious
reasons ure withheld, that it would bo
bud policy to set nside that provision requiring assessment work to be done upon
mining claims. A movement was on foot
to suspend tills work during the present
year, but the statements which hnve been
nrtide to the committee put a dilTcreut
light upon the matter, und no uction may
be taken. It is probable thut such legis
Iation will result mainly to the advantage of bands of speculators who have
tied up the' principal mining claims in
each locality, und compel ull those who
actually wish to work and develop a
mine to purchase it from them at a high
price, lt is pointed out that it is not
ditlicult for the bona tide miner, who hus
but one claim, to do his assessment work
each year, und thut in fuct nearly nil of
these do more thun the necessary u mount
of Assessment work every yeur. On the
other hand, it is obviously impossible for
speculators, without the expenditure of
large sums of money, to do thc "work upon
the lurge number of claims which they
are holding for the purpose of selling at
high prices to those who wish actually
to engage in mining. It is claimed, therefore, thnt the law is clearly a good one
and should not be suspended, for thc reason thnt it compels these speculators to
let go the dahlia they uro holding under
fictitious names, and thus permit actual
millers to file uponsthem.
Oldest Coal  Mine  In  Europe.
Some timo ngo it was proposed to celebrate this year thc 700th anniversary of
the discovery of coal in Kurope, whicli,
it was claimed, was made near Liege, in
Belgium, in 1108. Dr. F. Buttgenbnch
has now published a pamphlet to prove
that tho first, discovery was mnde 85
years curlier, in 1113, in the basin of the
Kiver Worm, nortli of AixluCliapellc.
Ho brings forward much evidence to
prove that outcrops of coal were worked
ill that yeur, and long after by the monks
of Kerkrade, who first discovered ils
qualities as fuel und utilized thc mineral,
or "block earth," ua it was culled. Thc
word "kuhl," un old Uennan term meaning ri pit, wns the origin, according to
this statement, of the German "kohl"
nnd the Knglish "coal." The generally
accepted legend haa been that coal was
first, used at Liege by a bluckamilh named
Hollos, from whose name comes the
French "houillc"—coal, snya the Kngin-
cering und Mining Journal, lie found
lhat the "black earth" which outcropped
near Liege could bc used in the forge Instead of charcoal. Coal, however, had
la-en Used at Sheffield, in Kngland, some
15 years earlier for the same purpose.
April Copper Production.
Copper production in the United States
ill April, as reported by John Stanton,
for the chief producers, wan very large,
reaching a total of 22,000 long tons of fine
copper, which exceeded by 2528 tons the
March report, and by 5455 tons tho output for April, 18117. The reporting mines
have increased their production, nnd there
has also been a notable gain in tliat given
in tlie reports ns coming from "outside
sources"—thnt is, from small mines not
in the producers' list and from the smclt-
crs of lend, gold and silver orea. For the
four months ending with April thc increase in production this year hns been
8103 long tons, or 11.7 per cent, over Mr.
Stanton's reported production in 181)7.

Probably there is not a section in the
mineral act of Britiah Columbia that ia ao
often misinterpreted aa is section 10. It
relates to thc staking of claims, and hns
been generally interpreted as meaning,
that, where there is no timber nnd posts
are hard to get, the locator may use stone
\ monuments to mark the boundary lines
of liis claim. Such is not tire case, und
as this is rr most important point it might
j be well to refer* to the act itself. Section
Hi says: "A minernl claim shnll bc
marked by two legal posts. a * *
Tire locator shall also place a legal post
at the point where he has found rock in
place." Then follows the paragraph re-
luting to stone monuments, but it refers
only tu the case of running tire blaze line,
anil makes no nllowuncc whatever' for the
same to bc used as legal posts, lt rends:
"When B claim has Ireen located the holder shall immediately mark lire line between posts Nos. 1 and 2 so Hurt it can Indistinctly seen, by blazing trees and cutting underbrush; und in a locality where
there is neither* timber nor* underbrush
he sliall set legal posts or erect monuments of earth, or rock not less thnn two

"The Washington mineral exhibit at
Omaha is going to Ire a cracker jack," said
Captain Thompson lost week. "Mr. Armstrong is exceeding all expectations in
getting together an exhibit, of which the
state may well be proud. Difficulties have
arisen in tlie commission, due to the endless jealousy between Sciillle und Tacoma. The Scuttle papers accuse Chairman Thompson of Tneonra of unfair
methods in turning down the proposition
to have u state building at Omaha after
Seuttle hnd provided the lumber und the
greater part of the cash. I ihr uot know
whether tbc charge ia well founded. Thc
Seattle Post-Intelligencer roasts Chairman 'llrompson unmercifully. Some people hnve thought it wns 1 who wrrs under
lire, the initiul not having been given.
The chairman of the commission is Hon.
(leorge M. Thompson of Tacoma. I only
have charge of the mineral exhibit, I do
not know how this building proposition
will shape itself, The lust proposition was
to build a very plain, one-room building,
milking it strictly a lumber exhibit and
using iu it large timbers which no other
state but Washington produces. Thia
could be built nt n slight cost, und the
material wus all to be furnished, lt
would not have been a handsome structure, but it would have been unique nnd
attractive. A meeting was held ut Tn-
conia tlie oilier duy. The full commission wns not there, and the meeting decided to dispense with tho building. This
is the cause of considerable bad feeling in
Seuttle. It is hoped Hint matters may be
harmonized nt the next meeting."

Mole St. Nicholas, June 18.-0:30 p, in.
—News from Quanlanttmo buy, up to t his
morning, shows that naval operations
thore continue most active nnd witli this
advantage on the side of the Americans,
Yesterday morning ut 9j30 o'clock the
Americans resinned the bombardment ot
Guantanamo town and in the course ot
nn hour threw into it 75 sheila, a great
majority of which appeared to have heen
effective. Six of those shells wore 13-inch
hoys, eight eight-inch and the rest smaller. The men in the tops oould see many
of the shells strike in the very midst of
the town, while others fell among the
shipping and commercial buildings near
the water's edge. Smoke arose in dense
columns from the places where Uie shells
foil and it is believed the damage, both
by the impact of the missiles nnd consequent conflagration, was very great.
On Thursday evening the ships had
thrown four 13-inch and nine eight-inch
shells into the town. This bombardment
began at 4 o'clock and ended nt S o'clock.
Much smoke and confusion wus discerned
iu Guantanamo during its progress,
Crowds of people and troops of soldiers
were seen moving about, and the vessels
in port hurriedly changed tlieir anchorage.
Texan   llu.tere<tl   ('untie   Socapa.
On Wednesday night the Texas penetrated into the hay of Santiago, passed
Morro eastle and poured a well directed
fire both on thut stronghold and on the
castle Socapa. This battle began about
11 o'clock and ended about midnight.
There was little response from the Spaniards and sueh as there was, did hardly
any damage. No one was killed on the
American ships in any of these actions.
The Spanish officers who were captured
on Wednesday nt Guantanamo buy ure
reported to be on board the Marblehead.
The news of the work on Wednesday
night by the Vesuvius and New Orleans
in Santiago buy te confirmed. The Vesuvius threw shells into the water to ex-
plods thc mines, while the New Orleans
engaged the fortifications along tbe short.
The Marblehead 1ms captured a Spanish
sloop in Guantanamo harbor nnd made
eight soldiers who were on board prisoners.

Thc Americans are now practically in
full possession of t.uant-anuinu bay and
the white tents of the land force present

forces, but it is always inefficient and of
no importance.
Day before yesterday our soldiers captured' at Guantanamo a Cuban with dispatches which lie was carrying to thc
Spanish general. He was turned over '.o

Abraham Sequa, an Indian living on
the Coeur d'Alene reservation, was in

told by Abraham is that he visited Louie
Friday night and engaged 111 a friendly
game of poker. The former was lucky
and won a sum of money, ft gun und
a saddle from the latter, but it appears
that the articles were not delivered to
the winner at the time, The next morning Abraham returned to Louie's house
to get the goods ho hud won, but the latter refused to deliver them, and Abraham came to Tokoa to got legal advice.
He seemed much disappointed when he
found he could not collect the debt.

The report of the enrollment and attendance of the Moscow public schools
for the past year reaches the high water
mark in the history of the schools. The
number enrolled was 81)7. a record that

state outside of Boise. Kighty eighl per
cent of the census enrollment of the dis

university, shows thnt over fH> per cent
of the children of school ngo have attended school. This is an excellent showing and Moscow is proud of it.

The matter of testing the validity of
Lhe bonded debt of Shoshone counly
seems about to coine to a head. The
semi-annual interest is due in New Von;
on July 1, und it is the practice here to
make the remittance here about tho 15th
of this month, in order to have it thero
ou time. The county treasurer has been
enjoined from making the remittance. It
is anticipated thnt wheu the county re
fuses to pay the interest the bondholders
will Immediately take steps to tost the
validity of the bonds. The commissioners evidently prefer to net on the defensive and force the bondholders to commence action. While the validity of the
whole issue of $280,000 is disputed, they
having heen issued by the commissioners
without submitting the matter to a vote
of the people, it te scarcely hoped that
the county will be relieved from the payment of the whole amount.

The convjntion held in Dominion
hu'l, Rossland, lrst Tuesday evening,
w ts highly satisfactory to the Support'
g.s of the Turn; r government.
It was tborougbly representative in its
make up and \hc gentlemen who compiled it were men cf influence jn their
re»i>-;.;ive communities, and full of con-
Ailence an enthusiasm, There choice
of a cai.duVe to represent the Roes-
land riding, with a leaning toward thc
Turner government, < annot 1 ut rccoro
uie:id itself t > every lair minded elector.
Mr. John McKane, the nominee ot the
convenlijn, is a man, who, during his
rjsidencc in Rossland has seemed the
rej get an$ confidence of all whom he
has come Ucontact with. He was born in
fifeshirc, Scotland, in 1863; educated in
the btgh school ut Dunfernlinei rccoiv-
ed a business training in tbe Bank of
Scotland, aid was an accountant in that
bank In Forres before- joining tbe Merchants' bank of Halifax, Nova Scotia;
\i irteen years in tec latter irs.ituticn
.ma for eight years 111 mager of its di.-
f tent branches. He is at present sec-
retatyol the boaid of fade of Rossland, and has always taken a square
stand in municipal politics and on all
QUcB'.ions effecting ihj public interest.
Mr. McKane, while a stranger to a majority of the reside**{3 of the Kettle
Kiver and Boundary districts, has un*
bounded faith in us future and te interested in several mineral claims in the
vicinity of (Jrcenwocd ar.d Cbrisiina
Therefore il cannot but impress the
intelligence ot the electorate of the Kettle Kiv-r and lioundary country lhat a
gentleman who has inatje so maiked a
success in his bi oincss career, must
have a greut many qualifications which
are essential in a representative, energy,
u cpick grasp of business affairs, intelligence and possed of tho power of ix-
p:essijig t iem clearly and in an interesting manner.
What the Rossland riding wants is a
representathe, who not only has the
^ood will, but the talents to do it justice. If it is to receive lhat recogna-
tion at the hands of the government, to
which its magnificent resources entitle
jt, we must bave a man at Victori.i, who
is possesseu of the necessary power, to
lay its requirements and claims before
thc legislature in a lucid and forcible

That is What the People of Rossland Tell
Alderman White-
Alderman M. D. White returned Wednesday evenirg from Rossland, where
h# went as a delegate to the convention
held in that city, last Tuesday evening,
to nominate an Independent Government candidate for the Rissland Riding. Daring bis stay there Mr. White
interviewed a number of the financial
agents of Rossland relating to the possibility of Grand Forks securing a loan
for the purpose of providing funds for
Current expenses until such times as the
city taxes were available and collected
and for sufficient money to pay off the
water works indebtedness, grade and
improve Riverside avenue and Bridge
street, and seems confident that the city
will experience no trouble in borrowing
all the money that it needs on as long a
time, and very favorable terms.
In speaking of the future of the Kettle River and Boundary districts, Mr,
White said: "I found every one iu
Rossland much interested in this sec
tion and all witb whom 1 talked s oke
in flattering terms of its future possibilities. I further found that a large portion of tbe people of Rossland were
looking to this section for investment.
Justus soon &y construction work on
the C. P. R is actually commenced between Cascade and Mid-vay I look for
a great inflyx of immigration this way,
if I don't miss my guess, Grand Forks
will be a bummer before snow fly?.
"Grand Forks and Greenwood are the
only two towns you lir-jr anything about
in Rossland, and they are both spoken
of as having* a bright future before tbem.
They are not looked upon as rivals and
surprise is expressed why there should
be any strife between tbe two places.
"Tbe nomination of Mr. McKai.e
seems to be very satisfactory to the
poople of RosslanJ, who have no hesitancy in saying lhat they will send him
opt of Rossland witb at at least 300
majority. In Trail it Is expected that
he will receive at least a majority of the
votes, and it is claimed tbat they can
give Martin the vote of the Boundary
country to a man and then beat him out.
"Such prominent men as J. B. Mc-
Arthur, Gov. Mcintosh, Mayor Wal-
lice, Ross Thompson, T. Mayne Daley
and a majority of tbe representative
business men of the town are support
ipg McKane, who is looked upon as a
gentleman of ability with a reputation
that is unquestionable.
"Rossland has made a wonderful advancement since my last visit there,
about one year ago. The city is expending a large amount of money in improving the streets. They have a magnificent tire department jjnjt police
force and everything goes to indicate
that in less than ten years time, Rossland will bc one of the largest if uot tbe
biggest, cities in the province."

provincial election to be held on the tj'h

Has Adopted "Sojk'ess Jerry Simpson's"

James Martin, »*be nominee of the
Rossland oppositionist, a.vooped down
on the Boundary country last Tuesday
evening like a turkey buzzird on a dead
cow. Whether Mr. Martin came over
to look after his poliical fences, which
seems to be somownat out cf re, ar, or
to complete bis arrangements for tbe
removal of his hardware store from
Rossland to Greenwood is a debatable
question. Every indication goes to
show however that it if .the former, as
he tpent the entire day Wednesday in
Grand Foiks und vicinity distiibutiug
copies of his political platform from
house to house like a Baptist missionary distributing tiacts.
The coming of Mr. Martin has been
looked for by a large portion of tbe
clcct/Cirs of tbis district, who had congratulated themselves that they would
bave an oppoitunity of hearing bim,
from the nub'if. platform, define bis
position and policy so tbey would then
know wbere to find bim. In thj* they
were disappointed When an aspirant
for legisltive honors has to rcsott to
such methods as going from house to
bc use in search of votes like a tiamp
asking for a handout, it is evidence of
weakness, and would indicate that be
is not possessed ot the required ability
to represent a growing district like tbis,
and has no otber qualification to recommend his candidacy other than being a
decent old chap, you know.
VJr. Martin left Thursday morning
for Greenwood wbere be will remain for
an indiffinite period visiting triends and
explaining to the boys what a walkover
he bas In Kosslan.i and Trail.
He is the Nominee of thc Independent
Government Party.
The convention of delegates, reprc-
dffltipg the Indcnepdent Government
in tbe Rpsslapd ruling, helil in Dominion hall, Rossland, last Tuesday evening, is a thing of the pa-st and John McKane of Rosiland was chospn to stand

of a candidate.
John McKane and Richard Armstrong were the only aspirants fot top
nomination and the former receiving a
majority of the votes cast was declared
tb: nominee of the convention. The
convention then adjonrned and the public was admitted.
In response to calls fpr a speech Mr.
McKane informed the -uidicnce that be
appreciated the great honor tbat bad
,l)e-en conferred on him and assured theip

appear on the supplementary list. One

made tbeir appearance, but as tUey

were unable to secure a copy.

Boal Dandy, off Guantanamo, via Kingston, Jamaica, June 20*—Cuban scouts report today that the inhabitants of Cat-
manera have Btrewn the streets with
straw and oil, with the intention of
destroying the city and fleeing to the
hills, Caiinanera lies four miles up the
bay from Camp McCalla under the guns
ni' tin' American ships, ami the situation
te desperate. Starving ami fainine-strick*
Hi, convinced uf ilu* ultimate triumph of
tin- Ameri an army, uml without faith in
th.- protection of the Spanish soldiery,
the people are believed to have determined to leave their houses in ashes he-
hind Ihem ami geek safety in the hills of
tlie math. The scouts declare thut the
ntory is accurate, ami say that every
building of the town i* being rapidly pre
pared for the torch.
The situation of the besieged is a fearful one. Tlie people are eating horses ami
mulefl ami are scouring the hills for fruits
and herbs. Occasionally brief bombardments by the American fleet leave the
helpless citizens terror-stricken, no preparations for defense being made. It is
also stated that the Spanish gunboat ut
Caimanera has been loaded witli Inflammables and will be burned with the eity,
lier commander declaring that she will
never become an American prize.
Tlie scouts also say the Spanish soldiers
are in almost ns complete a state of panic
us are the civilians and that they could
easily be induced to surrender. Some of
the prisoners taken by the marines also
buy that they believe the Spanish troops
are on the verge of surrender, owing to
the lack of fund. Captain McCalla of the
cruiser Marblehead und Lieutenant Colonel Huntington, in command of the marines, ure not so sure, however, of the
Spanish rout.
The coast in the vicinity of Ouantana-
mo is dotted with bright-hued Cuban
flags. Numerous camps of the insurgents
hnve la-en established nlung the beach
between Santiago and this place and are
uied by the admiral as means of commu-
nieatiou with the insurgent* in the interior. The information which these men
have given hast been proven highly valuable to the Americans. Their stories of
the disaster to the Spanish soldiers in this
vicinity have been corroborated by prisoners captured around the camp.
Another body of live Spaniards was
captured by Ensign A. A. Pratt of the
.Marblehead. While cruising in a steam
launch outside the Uy be picked up u
4u-foot Moop containing a Spanish captain named Totes und four sailors. They
said tbey were on their way to Guantanamo to get a supply of eoal for the
lighthouse at Cape Mayst, but the papers
found on the sloop proved that they hud
been sent to obtain information relative
to the American forces.
There was a brief bombardment of a
olockhouse up the bay by the battleship
Oregon yesterday, and it te nelieved that
at least a wore of Spaniards were killed.
Scouting parties report that the blockhouse was completely destroyed, but that
they were unable to discover any bodies,
the remains of the soldiers who had been
killed probably having been carried oil
by their comrades.
The marines ure growing restless, owing
to lhe delay in the arrival of the reinforcement of troops, but it is generully
believed here today that the trunsjMirts
will reach Santiago not later than Monday.

Dear Mrs Pinkham —Before using
your Vegetable Compound 1 was a
great sufferer. I have been sick for
months, wus troubled withsevere pain
ln bulb sides of abdomen, sore feeling
in lower part of bowels, also Buffered
with dizziness,
headache, and
I couldnol sleep.
1 wrote you a
letter describing my case and
asking your
advice. You
replied telling me Just
what lo do. I
lollowed your directions, and cannot praise your medicine
enough for what it has done for me.
Many thanks to you for your advice.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has cured me, and 1 will recommend it to my friends.—Mrs. Florence
E. Hoffman, 512 Roland St.. Canton, O.
The condition described by Mrs Hoffman will appeal to many women, yet
lots of sick women struggle on with
their daily tasks disregarding the
urgent warnings until overtaken by
actual collapse.
The present Mrs. Pinkham's experience lu treating female Ills Is unparalleled, for years she worked side by side
with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham. and for
sometimes past has had sole charge
of the correspondence department of
her great business, treating by letter
as many as a hundred thousand ailing
women during a single year.

Slianlah In Ainhnnh On Shore.
OH Santiago do Cuba, Juno 18, via
Kingston, Jamaica, June 19.—Several attempts lo find landing places for the
United Slates troops within a distance
two miles west of Santiago have determined, with previous inquiries to tlie
eastward, that thc shore for 15 miles ia
lined with Spaniards. While Uiis will
not prevent a landing close lo Santiago,
it may entail considerable delay, as the
surrounding country must be thoroughly
shelled and cleared before troops can land
in safety.
Y'cstcrday at daylight the launches of
the New Y'ork and thc Massachusetts rc-
connoitcrcd the shore between Cabanas,
two miles westward of the entrance to
Santiago harbor, and Guayacabon, two
miles further west, both of which points
lie east of the range of mountains Bur-
rounding Santiago bay. Tlie launches
pushed their noses into a hornet's nest.
The brush was fairly alive witli Spaniards, and the lire was so fierce that the
retreat of the launches had to be covered
by thc Vixen and Texas. Lieutenant
Sharp of the Vixen and Lieutenant Harlow in command of the launches were
both complimented liy Admiral Sampson
for gallantry.
Tlio following is tlie nbstract of Lieutenant Harlow's report lo the commander
of the Vixen dated June 18: "The expedition consisted of the steam launch from
the Massachusetts in charge of Cadet
Hurl and a launch from tlie New York in
charge of Cadet Powell. I took passage
on the Massachusetts launch, leading the
way. Soundings were taken on entering
tlie bay close under the old fort and we
were preparing to circumnavigate the
bay at full speed when the flre was opened
from the rocks on shore.   The Massachu
setts launch was some distance ahead
about 30 yards off the fort. There was
no room to turn and our 1-pounder could
not be brought to hear. We backed and
turned under a heavy fire.
"Cadet Hart operated the gun as soon
as it could be brought to bear, sitting
exposed in the bow and working the gun
as coolly and carefully as if at target
practice. Cadet Powell had heen tiring
since the Spaniards opened. He also
was perfectly cool, lloth launches ran
out under a heavy fire. 'Tlie number of
Spaniards along the shore was large. The
launches, as soon as was practicable,
sheered, to give the Vixen the range of
the fort. The Vixen and Texas silenced
the short fire promptly.
"1 strongly commend Cadet Hart and
Cadet Powell for their cool management
of the launches. One launch was struck
several times. Nobody on either was hurt.
A bullet struck a shell at Cadet Hart's
feet between a projectile and the powder
hut  failed  to explode the  latter.
"Coxswain O'Donnell nnd Seaman
lllooni are commended, as also is the
coolness with which the marines and sail*
ors worked under Spanish fire.
llnlr   tbe   Pitcher   Uo   Much   Extra
Work In the Game.
One of the cleverest points of play
adopled hy tlie Baltimore team in seasons post was working the pitcher by
compelling him to toss up as many balls
us possible without proving a handicap
to tlie Orioles, suys an exchange. Of
course Hanlon's men were in a position
to palm off hits of strategy on a pitcher,
because they were one of the most scieu-
tiiic set of batsmen ever gotten together.
They had a way of dropping a well-
placed hunt with the bases filled, bringing in a run, and then filling up the corners again. Hanlon used to argue that
every ball pitched was a handicap to the
twirler, and his men were therefore instructed to work off fouls, overlook
strikes, hold out for three balls, and pin
the pitcher, if possible, with three halls
and two strikes. In faet, anything to
make hiin waste balls and use up some
surplus energy. The ex-champions have
worked this job on some of the best
pitchers in the league, and many a close
game has been won by this system of
team work at the bat.

Dauntless, off Santiago de Cuba, Saturday, June 18.—Noon.—Via Kingston, Jamaica, Sunday, June 19.—A careful inspection of tlie fortifications along the
crest of the hills defending Santiago harbor since the bombardment Thursday
morning shows the American gunners
spread wreck and ruin everywhere. Some
of the batteries were demolished beyond
repair. Thc vultures which circled the
hills as thick as swallows around a chimney for hours after the firing ceased fur
nished gruesome evidence of the fatality
among the Spanish soldiers. Hundreds
of troops could be seen from the ships
digging in mounds of earth piled by the
explosion of the projectiles from the
heavy guns for bodies, while their heads
were fanned by tlie wings of the black
scavengers of the battlefield.
There were two spots, one on the east
and thc other on the west of the liar
hor entrance, which were denuded of foi
iagc. The hilltops Bccin literally blown
away. These marked the places where
the 200*pound charges of guncotton blown
hy tho Vesuvius landed.
But the most ominous token of death
Hew from Morro eastle. The saffron Hag
of Spain was half-masted for several
hours. The significance of this is not
known. It is not customary to half-mast
flags, but possibly some Spanish leader
was killed by tho heavy firo of guns,
though somo ollicers of the squudron believe that the flag was half-masted as a
notification to thc Americans that Lieu
tenant Hobson and his brave men were
dead. If such is the case they must have
been wantonly murdered. The Spanish
might seek to lay their death to the bombardment, but not a shot from the Americans struck the fortress. Neither Admiral Sampson nor Commodore Schley believes that Lieutenant Hobson and his
pally have been killed.
We have 17 prisoners taken at Guantanamo, including a lieutenant, besides
a number in the United States for reprisals or exchange.
Spanish Troopa Demoralised.
Thero was evident demoralization
among tho Spanish troops during the
bombardment. Officers could bo seen
with drawn swords driving thc men to
the guns, hut even then they could not
he forced to stay so long as our fire was
directed at them. Fifteen minutes' night
work of the Vesuvius had shuttered
their nerves.
It is believed by some that the 12-
inch projectile fired from the Texas,
which was reported to have exploded the
powder magazine in one of the western
batteries, did not fall in tlie battery,
but went beyond and blew up one of the
ships in thc harbor.
A dramatic incident of the bombardment was tho act of a Spanish officer,
who bravely run along the parapet under
a heavy (Ire encouraging his men to
stand hy their guns. Shot and shell
rained about him, and after one terrific
explosion lie was seen no more, and the
parapet disappeared. He could not huve
escaped death.
Germnnn May Land nl Manila.
London, June 20.—Tlie Berlin correspondent of the Times says:
lt seems probable that if Admiral Dewey is unable to undertake the responsibility for the safety of the Germans at
Manila, Admiral Deidrichs may land a
force. Once a German landing has taken plnce German interests will doubtless
assume a new aspect and as the Marine

The Kolnische Zeitung- uttering a
warning to the United States that it will
not find colonizing easy, proceeds to say *.
"An administration which is so corrupt
and so completely at the mercy of most
pernicious political influences as tlie Union will hardly repair the ravages
wrought by Spanish neglect and priestly
rule in thc course of centuries. Tlie citizens of most of the free republics do not
seem to realize the enormous burdens
which a military occupation of these colonies and their protection by a navy will
impose upon a state. The Americans arc
not even prepared to protect their own
coasts against a naval power of any importance."
Where  Are  the Transport-,?
On Board Uie Dispatch Boat Dauntless,
off Santiago de Cuba, June 18.—Via
Kingston, Jamaica, Juno 19, 2 p. m.—
Thc horizon is eagerly and patiently
scanned for a glimpse of the long expected transports. The delay in their
arrival is inexplicable, as much favorable
weather is being lost and the hurricane
season is due in less thun 30 days. Meanwhile from Kingston and Port Antonio
eome reports that large quantities of supplies have been smuggled into Cuba.
Admiral Sampson is in daily communication with thc insurgents under Colonel
Cebraro, who are investing Santiago on
the land side, and arc continually skirmishing with the Spanish outposts.
General Linares now commands the
military forces in the town, where there
arc 8000 regulars concentrated. Thc
civilians arc in a starving condition and
their deplorable condition will he more
aggravated from day to day.
Spies report to Admiral Sampson tliat
the Spanish general Joral and several
officers wero killed by the guncotton explosion at the first trial of the batteries
of the Vesuvius.

of explosives, derived from French, Austrian and Belgian sources.

Important   Work   Performed by   the
Orimy Man Dowu Below.
In tbe ships of Paul Jones, and Nelson, and Hull the sailors were the
men tbat swarmed up Into tbe rigging
and unfurled the canvas that made
the vessels go. In time of battle some
of them continued to nttend to that
duty and others manned the guns. On
a modern man-of-war the work of
fighting tbe ship and that of propelling
lt are divided among two different
classes of men. The men on deck aro
gunners. The real sailors—those who
handle the motive power as thc bea-
men of the Constitution broke out
their studding sails and warped on
their kedges when they were edging
their ship out of the teeth of the Brit
ish fleet—are down below ln stulTyllt-
tle compartments, pouring oil on bearings and listening to the jangling of
bells from tbe bridge.
The man ln the engine-room has little of the fun or glory of a modern sea
fight. He hears the booming of near
and distant guns, but be does nol
know how the battle Is going. The
ship may be a helpless wreck, aud the
next minute may be his last, but that
Is none of his nffalrs. The engines
must keep moving, and tbey must respond Instantly to the will of the ship's
brain ln the conning tower or the battle ls lost.
And It Is not alone thc great machinery thnt turns tbe screws that hns to
be looked after. The whole ship ls oue
maze of complicated enginery, lt ls
steered by steam; Its turrets are turned by slenm directly, or Indirectly
through electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic power; lis great guns nre loaded by steam; It ls lighted by electricity, which Is supplied by dynamos, run
by steam; lt ls ventilated by steam-
steam Is thc source of all Its activities.
Let the englues cease to work nnd
the ship would die. It would drift like
a log on Ibe water; Its guns would be
silent; Its Interior would bc swathed
In darkness; and suffocation would
drive Its crew from Its lower compartments to the deck. But the machinist stands there—the grimy, faithful physician, with his band on the
ship's pulse to see that Its heart does
not stop bcatlug. Down lu his steel
dungeon, with none of the inspiration
of the battle, be listens for the signals—"Slow," "Half speed ahead,"
"Ileverse," "Full speed astern"—and
upou his vigilance depends the success or failure of the Captain's plan
of attack. A lever turned right may
mean an enemy's ship rammed and
Bunk; turned wrong, lt mny mean the
battle lost.
It takes unusual qualities to succeed
In the engine-room of a mnu-of-wnr—
sober, unflinching devotion to duty,
the courage lo face varied and abhorrent forms of death, coolness that
nothing can disturb, nud nn Inexhaustible fertility of resource. Happily for
us, these are qualities In which America Is rich.—New York Journal.

Immense  Buins  of  Honey  Spent  in
Kurope by Tourists.
The amount of money expended by
tourists ln Kurope has, If offlclul records abroad are to be accepted as authentic, Increased enormously of Into
years. There has been recently filed
with tho Swiss minister of finance and
customs at Berne a detailed statement
of hotel receipts ln thnt country, from
which It appears that tbe gross receipts
of Swiss hotels rose from 52,800,000
francs In 1880 to 114,833,000 In 1894.
The entire annual expenses of the
Swiss republic amount lu a yenr to
between 80,000,000 and 90,000,000
francs (the budget for this yenr Is given at the latter figure), nnd It would
seem, therefore, much as if the hotels
of Switzerland take ln more In u year
thnn the government itself does. The
Swiss figures are not the only ones furnished ln Europe recently on this point.
A French record shows that every year
there are 270,000 foreigners Who pass
from a fortnight to a whole winter on
the Blvlern. Every person is supposed
to expend on an average 1,000 francs,
or $200, In the country. In other words,
tbe foreign visitors spend In the country every winter tbe snm of "fui.OOO,-
000. Tbe English are put down as contributing one-third of tbis amount; thc
French themselves contribute another
third; Germans, Belgians, Dutch, Bus-
■Inns and Americans contribute the remainder. From being a poor country
when lt was annexed to France, In
1800, Nice has become one of tbe richest departments of the republic.
Some figures recently compiled of
tbe revenues to hotels from tourists In
Paris show the average number of foreign visitors to be 00,000. It Is customary to estimate at 10 francs, or $2 a
day, the hotel bills of strangers In
Paris. Estimating at $2 a day each
the hotel bills of 00,000 tourists, and at
about as much more their other outlays, and It is to be seen tbat tourists
In Paris can be put dowu for nu expenditure of nearly a quarter of a million dollars a day.
The total sum expended by tourists
ln Europe In a year ls probably not
very far from $700,000,000, and a considerable portion of this comes from
the pockets, the purses, and the bankers' balances of Americans, who nre
proverbially the most liberal among
travelers. Russians come second, Bru I
ilUtuis third.—New York Sun.
The Behavior of the Japanese.
The Japanese are as courteous as the;
are theatrical and artistic. Their courtesy and their art are very closely allied. Their keen sense of courtesy nnd
their unflagging practice of It bave, I
believe, as much to do with the quietness and Alness of their funerals as has
their fine artistic Instinct. They are ai
a nation even prouder and more studious, I think, of their courtesy than of
their artistic excellence. "Cry. It will
do you good," I said once to a poor Jap-
nese woman, who, crouching beside her
dying husband, was controlling herself
with an effort tbat would, I feared,
make her ill. Sbe laid ber little, slim,
brown finger upon her trembling red lip
and shook her bead, tben whispered:
"It might disturb him." "Cry. It will
do you good," I said the next day, when
the man was dead, and she seemed almost prostrate with grief and over-enforced self-control. "It would be mosl
rude to make a hideous noise beforf
the sacred dead," came the soft reply.
