A rather startling sign of the Imminence of. the invasion ol Cuba.'by the
American forces was-couiaihed in tbe
chartering yesterday by the War Department of eight large summers, of an
average capacity of about i',000 tons
each, and each capable of carrying
from 500 10 ll'CO passengers. These
steamers will be used as transports-for
the conveyance of the first military ex*
pedition 10 Cuba. Tne names of iho
steamers chartered arc: ��� Olivette and
Florida, of the Plan' Line, now ill tha
Gulf; Southern Pacific Company's
steamer Aransas, the New York and
Texas Company's vessels Comal, now
at New York, and Melano, now eu
route 10 the Gulf; three tine ships of
the Boston Merchants'Liue, now in
Baltimore, the Alleghany, Berkshire,
and Decatur Miller.
Naval circles look to the Philippines
for 1 he first big war news. The naval
officers say Admiral Dsivery e,ther
timet take a port in the Phillippiue*
and make, it the base of supplies 'and a
temporary home lor his ships, or he
11111st send his fleet straight across the
the Pacific to Sau Francisco, since hia
ships aie ex; elled from Chinese pot te.

possessions 011 Ihe Chinese c-jsst hav*
iug adopted Great Britain's rules as to
the conditions under which ships ol
I the hell geieut |oners may shelter in
their ports, 110 mutter how- well inclined toward the United State, these powers may be. China undauntedly will
be obliged under pressure to adjpt th*
same practice,
Thus Admiral IX'werv will find that
having obtained one supply ol coal for
his snip, at a port  belonging to Ik*
Powers, that port  will b* practically
closed to his ships again, for they will
not be permitted to enter them   again

The Hon. Col. Baker has written to
Mr. Forrest that he will pay Donald a
visit Iii May. This is taken by some
to mean that alter all theC'olouel will
seek t he suffragi s of t his portion of East
Kootenay. We don't believe he will
have the temerity to ask the suffrages
of the electors here after the way in
which he has, iu his place in Parliament, put through so much legislation
lor the benefit of himself and his
friends, instead of devoting bis attention in preference to properly reprei-ent-
iug tbe wants of his constituents,
This we do know, that no free and independent elector who places the welfare of the community as a vphjle before the robbery ol the public estate
for the aggtandisemont of individuals,
will hslp to countenance by his vote
th't actions of th.se who were responsible for the notorious B C. Southern
charter ond the Crow's Nest Coal deal,
which has placed iu the bunds of himself and a few friends the finest heritage of the people. To vote for Col.
Biker is to endorse those steals.

FBIDAY,  APRIL 29, 1898.
Toll it not iu East Kootenay, but
the representative of this district. Col.
Baker,.and G. B. Martin, of Kamloops,
were the only two members of the
Provincial Lesislature who voted
against the bill to prevent Chinese
nd Japs being employed on works carried on under public charter. Fortunately the bill was carried by 94 votes
to two. Ii the members now representing tbe people of Yale and F.nst
Kootenay had their way thi white
man would have to starve for want of
a crust were it possible to supplant
him by the cheap labor of the miserable Asiatic. We trust th* working
men of East Kootenay and Yala are
not yet so reduced to seriitudo but
that they will go to tho polling booths
at the coming elections and register a
solid vote against these two candidates
who have thus thrust upon their constituents the greatest insult thai could
be offend to the free miners and workers of this oountry.
