Mad rid-The following Is the lext
of an official despatch from the Governor-General of the Phillippiiici to the
Spanish Minister of War asto an engagement which took place off Manila
on Saturday night lietiveeii the Spanish
mid American forces. 'The roar of the
batteries at the entrance to the port announced the arrival of the eneiny'-
squudron, which was forcing a pass-
a|;e under the obscurity of ths night.
At day-break the enotnyV ships took
up their positions, opening fire against
Fort Cavite and the Spanish Arsenal.
Our fleet engaged the enruiv in a faril
lia.iit combat, protected hy the Cavite

enemy wilh heavy loss to mauoeuvrt
repeatedly. By Vine o'cioc': the United States fleet had suffered 10 severely
that it took refuge behind the foreign
merchant shipping 011 ihe easl side ol
the Bay.
" Our. fleet, considering the super
iorty of llie 01101.'.v, naturally suffered
a severe loss. The Maria Christina.

is ou fire, and another ship, believed 10
h* ihe Don .loul Austria, waa blown
up. There was considerable' loss of
life. Captain Cod-raso, eoininauijiin.

Cabanas last evening ate as foiljws: -
The flagship New Vork inn him

about two miles off the shore. Shi
was accompanied by tbe torpedo, boat,.

nor Unilv Mail (hitherto the only di
rect information from Manila) having
received any word on iho subject.
Madrid-Admiral Beruejo, Minister
of Marine, on joining the Cabinet
Council tlii, evening, informed his col
leagues that the Spanish forces hml
gained a victory in the Phlllippines.
He asserted that he found difficulty in
restraining his joyful emotions. Tho
official despatch does not meii'ioii the
destruction ol any United Slates vessels, although it says the United
States squadron finally east anchor in
the Bay behind the foreign merchant
This seems to indicate that, though
th* American fleet have not lost any
ships so far as is known, it has been
so disabled that it has been unable to
continue the bombardment of Manila,
as was part of the original programme
Washington���No details have been
received here yet regarding the extent
of tbo damage to the United Stales
fleet during Sunday's battle at Manila,
but all Spanish advices admit that the
Spanish fleet has been badly defeated
There is great rejoicing in Washington
over the victory so signally scored by
Admiral Dewery.
London -All theEngli.h newspapers
comment on the victory which the
United States fleet bss achieved over
th* Spaniards. They lay the result is
the discovery that another element ha
been introduced into tbe Eastern
Capt. Csdarso, of the Spanish flag,
ship Reins Maria Theresa, who was
killed in 'he engagement between the
Spanish and American fleets at Manila,
belonged to a Spanish family.
London���Full details of the naval
battle at Manila have Iteen received bv
the British Colonial Office. The engagement lasted two hours, und re
suited in the annihilation of the Spanish fleet. After the battle the United
States fleet withdrew, and one Ameri
can vessel, whose name is 110I stated.
was disabled.
It is reported that the Manila author
ities have refused to surrender and
that the American fleet is again bombarding the town. The cables hare
been cut so thai for the present Manila
is shut off from the outside world.
Hong Kong-The result of the bombardment of Manila is full of promise
foi-the success uf the American arms
against Spain in the East. The iu
habitants are fleeing from Manila into
the interior
The operators of the cable station-
in the midst of the forts fled to sate
their lives,
Key West���It is considered possible
that Ihe United States fleet will attack
Havana today.
London. May 3rd���Commodore D-w-
ery, according to a special despatch
Iron. Madrid, gave Captain General
Augasti, who is in charge of the
Spanish forces, twenty four hours notice, t* com ply with his ultimatum by
which he demanded lhat all warlike
stores and the entire stock of coal in
charge of tha Government official*
should be handed over to the United
States fleet. Tho ultimatum asserted
1 hut no money levy should he mado.
A despatch save it ia believed in
Madrid that the Spanish Government
has already cabled to Captain-General
Augasti authority to comply with the
demands of Admiral Dewery as
other course appear* to be open lo thu
Spanish forces there. Grave events
may follow the public knowledge ol
this compliance.
The- Madrid correspondent of the
Times, describing the engagement at
Manila, lay* the American warships
Olympia, Boston, Raleigh, Concord,
Panel and Monocacy entered Ihe Bay
undor cover of the darkness by ihe
smaller and safer Bocachicil channel.
The forts on Corlcgidor Island gave
the alarm by firing on the invader.,
but seems to have inflicted no serious
damage. The United States Squadron
moved up the Buy and at thrda o'clock
in Ihe morning appeared before
Cavite. Here, lying uiuier the shelter
of the forts, was the Spanish squad,
ron. Admiral Mon'izoa few days before weut outside to look fur ih"
enemy's ships but learning they acre 11
vastly superior force, returned placing
hi* ships under the protection of the-
forts, This was his only chance ol
meeting the enemy or equal terms. Ii
did not suffice however. Soon the
American Meet opened tire. The Span
iards replied rigorously, and the com
bat continued hotly without Interrupt
tion for four solid hours, during �� hleh
the Spanish ship Don Anion.0 du Ullon
was sunk. Th>- Spanish ships Castillo,
Mindanao, and Scion were set on fire
by the American ships, and the Spanish flagship Keina Maria Christina,
and tli* Don Juan de Austria were
seriously damaged. One or two small
Spanish crsft were scuttled by their
crews to escape capture by the Ameri
cans. No Spanish war-ships surrendered, and the majority perished with
their offiicra and men.
Th* Spanish commander., were killed
while resisting to the last moment.
The Spanish loss is estimated at four
hundred kille: besides many natives.
The American squadron was attacked
furiously hy the Spanish squadron,
:ind also by the batteries on Fort Cavils, which caused great di'inagc to
the American ships.
Hong Kong There is uo news here
of the dis**ter to the Spanish squadron
beyond a private telegram from Captain Concha to his family, who. are attending the convent schools here. It
states lhat ehots were heard in the di
rect ion of Costigndor Island, and it
was assumed from this ..hat the American fleet was recoiinoiiriiig the
entrance, and trying the southern side
of the Island, which ia six milea wide,
surrounded by rocky slioitls, although
not believed to I* datigerou*.
There ia no news either of the Span
ish squadron,   but   according   to   the
latest advice, it could 1101 lake the uf
fenaive in any case. The cable to Man
ila is now interrupted.

Speeches of   the   Opposition
The following are brief report* of
the speeches made ut the Opposition
meeting and which we had to hold
over from lust issue through pressure
of war news: ���
W. C. Wells and Hon. P. W. Aylmer
add'e-sed the meeting. Mr. Wells
said theat endunce there that night
was an exceedingly ere italde one, und
was a further evidence of the want of
confidence in the present Government.
In I ho present sessiun their expenditures exceeded the estimates, and it
was time affairs wero in other hands.
The manner in which ibey had disposed of our public lands was not for.
the good ot the country. They had
shown an inclination to do away with
our Ian s in a wanton milliner until
we have nothing further to give them.
The C PR. deal began in 1881), when
the present representative's attention
was called to it, as he did not credit
him wiih the discovery of It. Their
first act was to allow this grant that
it should build the B. C. Southern.
They hawked about this charter for a
number of years until now wc have
these lands lu the hands f another
company. These coal land* were valuable enough to build all tbe railway*
we would want for twinty five years.
Hu did not blame the C.P.R. forgetting
hold of the lauds, much to the loss of
B. C. If our Member could be charged
with being connected with that railway it damned the whole Government.
Why should the Provincial Govern
ment iuterfere with the Dominion Government in the Yukon Bill V Ii was a
Dominion matter. The Senate had
thrown out the hill, and the Dominion
Goven ment would bring in un doubt,
another bill; hut the Provincial Government seemed to think it was their
duty to give away all the lands in the
country. They should give the committee enlarged powers wilh regard
to the best means of forming a comu it-
tee to nominate a convention, axd at
an eirly .late. He was not a candidate
at the coming election until he received
the nomination in a proper manner.
He was not at all ambitious for it, Ue
made this suggestion in the interests
of the party. The platform of the
Li lier si couventio i at New Westminster was then read by Mr. Wells, wilh
comments on euuh plank. Re said
that everybody accepted that platform.
He did not see thai he could take exception to any part of it unl. as it be
that effecting timber limits.
Hon. Mr. Ayliner congratulated Mr.
Wells on his speech as he had done remarkably well. His name had been
mentioned in connection with the present election. He was not ambitious.
Me had been asked to stand. He had
loMi a consistent opponent tn .he present Government for about lfi years,
Ue was in perfect sympathy with the
platform adopted by the New West
minster contention. He would give
promise of unqualified opposition to
thepresent Goven.inent as he believed it
to be the most corrupt Government on
eanh. In reference lo Mr. Wells's
ststemrnt that an extra tax should b*
imposed upon Ihe Chinese, he stated
that the present Government had sum*
years ago attempted legislation ot that
kind and that they had collected a certain amount under the Act; and they
discovered that a discriminating set
against the Chinese was not lawful.
and that it would cost them 12 lo refund every dollar, they collected, or
eometbing like 15,000 to rafund 12,500.

�� tendency wl.ll re-
suit in a more robust womanhood,
better able to bear
the burdens and
duties and pleas-

can be no question. But this
result will be accomplished by
the building up
of those women
already in reasonably robust
health, and the
killing off of their
weaker sisters.
Athletics will
matte a naturally strong woman stronger
and healthier; they will make a naturally
wvak, sickly woman weaker and more
sickly, and If indulged in to excess, may
result fatally.
A woman who suffers from weakness and
dittcasc of the eiliente and important or-

".cover her general health through athletics, so long as she remains locally weak.

The Late J. F. Pugrh.
We regret to have to announce  tha
deat h of J. F. Pugh,  the well-known
tailor and clothier  of  Golden.     Mr.
Pugh took to his bed a week ago, and
Dr. Taylor pronounced him to be suf
ferlng from a  complication   of   heart
disease and mountain fever    Notwithstanding all that medical skill could do
and the best of nursing at the hands
of a loving wife. Mr. Pugh sank rapid
ly niid breathed his last at a quarter
to nine yesterday morning.     The di,
ceased waa a native of Liverpool, England, and for twenty year* before com
iug to Canada   he   had   conducted   a
large tailoring and clothing establish
ment in that city, employing au aver
age staff of 40   lauds.     Three  year*
ago he left  Liverpool   under  engage
ment to the Hudson's Bay Companj
to take the management of the cutting
and tailoring department of th* Com
pany'a Winnipeg house.     From there
be was removed to a   similar position
in the Calgary branch of i he Com pan, '���
business.   After a stay of eleven mon
ths iu that city ho came to the couolu
siou that there was a first-class open
ing   lor   a   tailoring    business    iii
Golden,     and     he     removed      tu

censed was 41 years ol age at the time
of his death.     Much sympathy is felt
for the widow and children in  their
