of His Company.
Vancouver, B. C, Aug. 28.���Mr.
Borne-Payne, English director of the
B. C. Electric Railway Company, iB
in the eity. He stated to The Miner
correspondent this mcrning tbat
although many improvements were
contemplated in Victoria he conld not
disclose their nature until after conferring with Mr. Iluntzou. There
wuuld, however, be no large sum
ipent in addition to what was already
being expended. In Vancouver, however tbey contemplated increasing the
power. He could not say to what extent but a large sum of money would
be spent. It was possible tne oapacity
would be doubled. They had Bpent in
Vancouver ��210,000 sterling sinoe
1896, but they had no idea that Vancouver would take suoh a leap for,
ward in four or five years and it was
difficult to keep pace with the rapid
Mr. Payne said be had been in Vancouver five years ago but snch wonderful improvements had taken place
that he did not recognize the town.
Mr. Payne gave a very interesting
description from memory of how tbe
town looked five years ago and the
different sections of the city that had
been huilt up since 1896. He was also
very enthusiastic over the wonderful
growth of Manitoba and the Northwest, liis party had coino as far as
Manitoba in Wm. MeKenzie's private
oar, tbe Ali Kokum, and had visited
the wheat fields of the Northwest.
Mr. Payne stated that he had it on
excollent authority that the yield
wonld be 60,000,000 bushels and the
farmers would get for this 55 cents a
In speaking of the Stave Lake power
proposition Mr. Payne said he only
had thu opinion of experts to go by,
Thoy had had the power examined by
three different authorities on such
matters ln 1894,1809 and 18110 and eaoh
of these authorities had reported tbat
the cost would be ont of proportion to
the financial advantages to be derived.
These expertB placed thc cost of establishing the plant at a much higher
figure than those who have the mat
ter In hand now The company after
the Stavo Lake Power had been exam
ined, decided that steam was the best
uvuilable power und they think so
In conclusion Mr.Payne said tbat he
had gone out of mining entirely having disposed of his holdings in the
Lardeau country.
Grand Forks, B. C, Aug. 28.���The
bylaw providing for the amalgamation
of Grand Forks and Col*uiibia was
carried today in both cities, tbe grand
total majority being 170. The property owners also decided by a majority
of nine votes that the name of the
future united cities will ba"Miner"
in honor of S. H. C. Miner, presient
of the Granby Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Go.
The polling in Grand Forks on the
amalgamation question and on the
three names submitted as u title for
the new city resulted as follows: For,
155; against, 35. Selection of a new
name: Amalgn, 23; Empire, 58;
Miner, 81; spoilt ballots, 38.
In Columbia the vote stood . For
amalgamation, 56; against, 6. Selecting uf new name: Anialga, 27; Empire 27} Miner 10.
There is great jubilation over the
result as it means harmony and progress where antagonism and discord
formerly prevailed. All classes of citizens will now unite in building up
a great mining, commercial, and
smelting oenter in the Kettle River
valley The credit of effecting amalgamation is geatly due to the personal
efforts of Tracy W. Holland, Montreal, manager of the Grand Forks
Railway; C. D. Rand, formerly of
Vancouver and Spokane, and Col. W.
C. Hayward. Mr. Rand was a real
estate operator in Vancouver in its
early days and attracted millions of
capital there for investment.
Grand Forks and Columbia will
retain their respective names until the
amalgamation ia given effect to by an
act of the Provincial Legislature.

LEFT 11,000,000 MARKS.
Victoria, Aug. 28.���The tug Pilot
returned thiB afternoon from Jnneau
with news of the finding of the body
of another of the Islander victim*. A
corpse with life belt on was found on
the beaoh near Taku arm by an Indian, and he came to Juneau to report
his find. Ho was offered 810 to bring
the body in and did so. The remains
were those of Wm. J. Bracelen, of
Hunker crivk, a miner from Humboldt,
Neb. An unusual amount of ice was
passed through by the tug.
Tho barque Fort Georgo from Honolulu and tho ship Ilavila from Santa
Rosalia, arrived here today and rc-
ports a large fleet of vessels outside,
but us far as can be learned the overdue Rattle Abbey is not among them.
Victoria, B. C, Aug. 28.���Tho C. P.

will make the run to Viotoria, replacing the Islander. She arrives here on
the 1st and sails on ihe 3rd.
Will of the Late Dowager Empress of
Germany Opened Yesterday.
Homburg, Aug. 28.���The will of
the lute Dowager Empress Fioderick
was opened "with special ceremony
today. Her fortune totals eleven
million marks. Her aix children
receive a million each. The youngest, Princess Margaret of Hesse (wife
of Prince Frederick Charles of Hesse),
also gets Frederlckshoff castle, on
which the Dowager Empress spent the
whole of 33,000,000 marks, which she
received from thj late Countess Gal-
tier. The Dowager Empress destroyed
only her most private papers. The remainder were deposited in the Frid
erlckshoff library. The fortune of the
Oowagor Empress included nothing
fiom the late Queen Viotoria, tbe
Dowager having renounced all claims
on her mother's estate.
Chinese Not in   a  Hurry  to  Sign the
Peace Protocol.
Pekin,   Aug.   28.���It   is understood
that the British   Minister proposed to
return tbe Imperial edict to  the  Chinese peace commissioners  as unsatisfactory,   bnt   the     proposal    failed.
Several of   the  diplomats,   including
Mr. Rockhill, opposed this feature of
the protocol.     Among   their  reasons
was that it was impossible of enforcement, and that It   was   illegal  while
insisting tbat the  Government  maintain order to deprive  it ot tha means
of  so  doing.     Wheteas a month ago
the Chinese commissioners  were   importuning tbe  ministers to conclude
the negotiations, it is  now the ministers who are  daily   visiting the Tung
Cbang on a similar   errand.     Severul
of  the ministers  expect  to be   trans
ferred to more pleusnnt   posts  at  the
conclusion of their luuors  and all are
weary with the confinement   in Pekin
during   the   tropical     months.     The
Chinese may    take  udvauage  of  the
minister's manifest  anxiety   to  wind
up the business   in   the  forthcoming
decrees.     If   the other  Governments
had kept troops   at  Pokin  until   tbe
protoool should   be   signed  as  Great
Britain ib aoing,   it   is  regarded  as
probable that tho  Chinese would supply greater willingness  to  carry  ont
tbe spirit of tbo protoool.
The Big North German Lloyd Liner
Again Shortens Time.
Now York, Aug. 28.���The Deutsch-

Lightship at 12.20 n. in. She wns due
to arrive at Sandy Hook at 1.44 a. ui.

Philadelphia, Pa., Aug. 28.-While
the steamer ''City of Trenton, " of the
Wilmington Steatnbout Co. was on
her way fiom this city to Trenton, N.
J, this afternoon her pott boiler exploded, killing soven persons and injuring over a score of others. Four
passengers are missing bnt as many
sustained slight injuries, it is thought
the missing may be among those who
did not nnd it necessary to go to the
hospitals. After the explosion, tho
boat took lire and ran aground. Tonight she is a blackened hulk on tbe
marshes, sixteen miles above the city.
Her hold is filled with water and it is
feared more of her passengers and
crew may bo found in the bottom of
the boat when the water is pumped
out. Her passenger list was lighter
than usual and Bhu carried very little
The vessel was in charge of Captain
W. Worrcl. The officers killed were:
Curry, pilot; J. W. Vanderver, mate;
Edward Murphy, chief engineer; J.
D. Chew, assistant engineer, and Clay,
ton Reibet, purser. Tbero were about
12 firemen and deck hands aboard.
Nothing of moment occurred until
the boat reached Terresdale. At a
point opposite what Is known as the
Harrison Mansion, a spacious building facing on the Delaware at tbe
suburban resort, the steam pipe connecting with the port boiler burst
with a loud report. The fore portion
of the upper deck was all filled with
passengers, wbile many others were
in the cabin. Before any of the pas-
sergers or ensployees had an oppot -
tunity to seek places of safety another
explosion occurred and this time tho
port boiler was rent in twain.
Scalding steam and water poured into
he cabin and sections of the woodwork of the boat were torn away by
the force of the explosion Those of
the passengers who were not steamed
and scalded by the steam and boiling
water, weie struck by the flying portions of '.he splintered cabin. Legs
and arms wore broken, aud faces and
bodies were parboiled.
The screams of the injured conld be
heard on the shore and the ones of
those wbo leaped and were blown into
the river were heartrending. So great:
was tbe force of tbe explosion that a
piano in the upper drawing room of
the boat was hnrled many feet from
the boat into the river. This proved a
fortunate occur.enrr, for many of the
injured, thrown into tho water, scalded and otherwise injmed so that they
were rendered helpless, clung to the
piano whioh had fallen into shallow
water, until rescued.
When the explosion occurred, Mate
Vanderver and Pilot Curry were in
tho pilot bouse. Both wero hurled
with torrifio force from the enclosure
and the wheel, for somo unaccountable teason, began 'involving with
lightning like rapidity. As a result
of this, tho rudder turned the bow of
tho bout towards shore and she quickly ran aground, fastening herself In
thd mud. Hy this time the vussel had
caught fire and those of tbo pnssen-
geiB who were still aboard were compelled to leap for their lives. Fortunately the water wns not more than
four feet deep aril many of the ��io-
tiuis weie able to wade ashore. Some,
however, who were too seriously injured to help themselves, were rescued
by mora hers of the bout cluhi whose
houses Hno the river front at this
point. Tho captain and the ciew of
tbo boat conducted themselves as
heroes. They rendered all tho assistance possible to the injured and the
cuptuin was the last mini to leave the
boat. All of the seriously injured
wore hastily convoyed to tho hospital.

Vancouver, Aug. 28.���'The Miner
correspondent wus informed this
morning on the best possible authority that tho same firm who installed
tbe Rnoqualmie Falls Power plant.
and supplies Seattle, Tacoma, and intermediate towns with power, huve
taken over tho Stave Luke I'ower
proposition. This coinpany have now
invested in Seattle interests representing $7,000,000 so that their financial standing is unquestioned.
Befoie the Stave Lake Power Co.
officially announce their readiness to
go ahead some little details of an unimportant nature have to be arranged.
To all intents and purposes, however,
thc agreement was made on Saturday
last with the Eastern American financiers to push the scheme to a successful issue. The Snoqualmie power is
37 miles from Seattle and 4". from
Tacoma. The Stave Lake power is 38
miles from Vancouver across country
and 42 by railway. The Snoqualmie
power pressure is greater as the falls
are higher, but as they are narrower
than the Stave Lako fells the amount
of horse power is no greater. At
present Vancouver and New Westmin
ster use 5,000 horsepower only. It is
probable that the Stave Lake company
will utilize 12,000 horse the iirst yenr
but thoir capaoity will cnuhle them
to add from yeur to year until they

Salmon Pack This  Season Not ns Big
as Expected.
Vancouver, Aug. 28.���Although
there is no limit to tho sookeye season as in previous yeurs there will be
little more fishing done on the Eraser
tbis season. For the past few days
the canneries have not put up more
than 200 cases daily each, and it i
probable that uy Saturday the nets
will be hung up.
The total pack to date has heen estimated by the secretary of the Canners'
Association to bo about 8110,01)0 cases
and the total pack of the senson will
certainly fall short of 900,000, It was
thought up to tho lirst of last week
that the million martc would surely
be reached but tho sockeyes ceased to
run almost as suddenly us they started in. Owing to the big sookeye puck
no humpbacks will be canned this
seasun. It wus learned on the best
uuthority thut a large proportion of
the Ba'.'Hon pack is to be stored iu
the canneries so that the English miir*
kots may not bo glutled. The sulnion
fleet consists ot niuu vessels capable
on an average uf currying 60,000 0BSBI

Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 28.���The Stec
Corporation continued making gains
in this district and today . added
enough men to its force ac tho Star
plant to insure the working of two
mills double turn, night and day,
from now on. The management
claims thnt the Freemont will be on
full force before the week ends. Tho
Strikers sny thut this claim cannot bo
made good und is being mado rashly.
In pursuance of i*. sannouncod plan to
run all of its plaotB absolutely nonunion the American Tin Plate Co. toduy commenced advertising for nonunion men to go to work. All applicants ure offered tho highest wages
und permanent jobs, but iu eveiy
ease tho application must bo made
personally und the applicant deeluro
himself free from all union control.
The company bus not yet mnde the
attempt to sturt either its Monogobcla
ot Dommler plnnt but announces both
will be started soon.
When asked today what he thought
of the Tin Plate Company's avowed
intention of breaking away from tho
union entiiely President Shaffer
said: "Wheic will they get men to
run their plants? If wc thought they
would be secured the threat might
frighten us. Until wo are assured
they are forthcoming we will keep
our nerve."/
The latest official declaration from
steel sources is that tho strike can
now be settled only by the men going
back to tbe mills. The position tho
officials take, it is said, is that the
strike is over so far as thei** dealings
with the strikers, as a body, is concerned. They want workmen for
their idle mills and men who want
work can have it for the asking at
wages paid before the mills shut
down. Tbey may bo union men or
not, but the union can have no say as
to their work or wages.
Notwithstanding the well deter-
mired position taken by the corporation as to a settlement, another arbitration scheme was launched this
evening by Simon Burns, president of
the Window Glass Workers' Association. Mr. Burns proposed an arbitration committee selected from among
suoh men as Archbishop Ireland,
Bishop Potter, Seth Low. M. A.
Ilanna and others of like prominence,
who, after having the entire matter
placed before tbem by both sides of
the controversy, shall have absolute
authority to settle upon terms of set-
teraent, thoir decision to be tlnnl and
accepted by both parties. Mr. Burns
says be has President Shaffer's sanction for tbe move and if thu Corporation shall agree to tho plan the strike
will be declared off at onia. None of
the steel peoplo here will discuss the
matter in any wuy.
Mr. Shaffer declared tonight thut
the strike, in spite of the claims of
the other side, to the contrury, is proceeding satisfactorily.und his association is making such inroads on thu
Corporation business that it will be
compelled .ooncr ur Inter to come to
terms. His men were lirm all along
tiic line and aie determined to stand
for theii rights to the end. He says
the few mills that have teen started
ure doing but little effective work.
Thu fuct that, the corporation is adding to its force daily does not worry
tbe president because he believes them
to b. either unskilled or poor workmen who wi'I be a drawback anther
than a help to their employers. Tho
steel people have nothing to say
point to the mills at work and
product turned uut. Actions,
sny, speak louder than words.

''Without speaking from a political electric power that portion of the road
point of view," the aged leader asserts'between Robson and Eossland on
that the late census was improperly ! account of the steep grades whioh
taken, that  Montreal has _0,0(w more  prevail between Trail   and  Rossland,
population than siven by the enumerators, and that the government is
doing wrong in trying to verify the
accuurcy of the returns of the census
of 1391. Sir Charles is a prophet probably not without honor save in bis
own country. When some twenty
v**ars airo be was telling the people of
Canada how much grain would be
grown in Manitoba in a few years
after the construction of tbe C. P. R.
he placed the yield at over one hundred million bushels. Twenty years
have gone by and the prophecy is still
unfulfilled. It is perhaps too much to
expect that Sir C'hurle.-. will leave to
his successor Mr. Horden, the work of
fault finding and "kicking" against
the government, for the ex-leader's
energy is still great and his disposition to hit political opponents remains
unchanged. The "ruling passion" is
evidently still strong in tho veteran
politician, and it would seem that he

The   big    dredge   od     tbi
I Thompson river which is   to
,n working the auriferous gravel beds
tnetP    was   started   last   week.    The
.-aims to be worked were flrBt located
v H. T!. Bellamy   who  organized   a
mutiny   '"   Nelson to   work   them.
Mnmt a year ago  tbis   companv   dis-
iM*d of their interests  in   it   to   the
lloy.l Svndi -iteof London,   England,
lge was moored on   the   river
Jamieson   creek where it was
]'. .1.   Tytler   and   Standell
who represent  the   syndicate,
1 number   of   the   oitizens  of
to witness   the  starting  of
ichlnery on the   dredge,   which
ace   with     appropriate   oere-
The dredge is  an   immense
aud built   with   the  view
ind overcoming the  obsta-
(._ which   have heretofore interfered
ith the successful operation   of  such
meiprises in this country.
Ibe crane ou which the buokets are
trong weighs over forty   tons.    Each
f  the   buckets   weighs     over   1,000
oui ds.      They    are   composed    of
irougbt Iron   witn   manganese  steel
ips so hard that a file could not make
ny   impression   on the   metal.   ' The
naohioety is of the true New Zealand
ype.   slightly  modified   to meet  the
iondnlon- in this   province,   lt  will
ant 850,000 net, and was designed by
', Satchel 1 Clarke,   mining   engineer
f Vancouver, and   formerly   of  New
ind, who has been superintending
ne work of co istruction.   The dredge
���as manufactured by the Wm. Hamil
>i] Co., of Vancouver and   Peterboro.
he  capacity of   the machine will be
OOli yards every 24 hours, and it will
e operated night and day with   three
ight hour shifts.    The   dredge   is  of
he    bucket   ladder   style    and   will
each to a depth of 45   feet  under the
urface of  the   water.    The  buckets
ring up the gold-beariui{  gravel and
epusit it in a revolving screen, 4 feet
nng and   five feet ic diameter.     The
oarser material passeR down the screen
ml is carriea off by the tailings  ele*
ator to a point far in the stern.   The
nor material containing the precious
etals of gold   and   platinum  passes
hrough the screen and is   caugbt   on
he New Zealand   tables   which   have
rst a  covering ^of linen   cloth, then
loennut matting,   steel   wire   screens
eing placed over these,   lt is claimed
hat these  tables will save   the   very
nest Hour gold as well as the coarBer
ariety,   and tbat   gravel   going   ten
;nts per cubio yard will pay to work.
s   the   company's     property     gives
urface indications   from  five cents to

rove   most   successful      A few days

rst actual work will be done and the

If they extend the bluff to Hritish
Columiba, tbe aggregation of freaks
will take all the money the Pipestone
sports can dig up. If them don't like
baseball for a gnme we have f��w stud
poker players in these parts who
would enjoy a quiet seance with farmers burdened with the proceeds of a
good crop. If their money is all tied
np in bunking brdnchoes we have an
outfit of mule skinners in these bills
who are perfectly at home on the
nurrioane deck of a cayuse, and can
ride anything that wears hair. They
will call any bet made in horselesh
or live stock of any description.
Speaking abont riding, some of the
alakli caters would probably be flab-
beigaBted at the idea of an aerial
tramway race in which tbe contestants
wonld be asked to truvel through
space, suspeuded between mountain
peaks on a set of timber hooks, or how
would'a rido in the Rambler skip
down into a few hundred feet of darkness suit, where a thouBand feet of
country rock shut out the gentle
cbinooic ? Maybe Vipestone wonld
prefer to go up against a hockey proposition. We have a gang of kids just
graduated from the local school who
oan skate rings around anything this
far west, and it would be a picnic for
them to make ten thousand so easy.
If it comes to comparing beauty, the
Slocan has a bevy of healthy oompleo*
tioned damsels who would make the
girls from the plains look like wooden
Indians. There is only one game that
we won't buck up against���policemen,
We bad a chief here last winter who
could outspot anything Manitoba ever
dreamed of. Talk about collecting
trophies! Why, he could just gather
up everything that wasn't ohained
down. But, say! Maybe those Pipestone jays would like to open up a
city counoil contest, We have a bunch
of aldermen that we will match
against anything in the municipal
Une that ever chewed the rag; and a
mayor than can���oh I but what's the
use. Simple words and cold metallic
type fail when it comes to describing
Sandon s mayor. He's a peach. Give
him a 10-bore saweo-off and he will
make a stand-off with the  universe.''

The Last Thursday Half Holiday of
the Season to Be Observed.
This afternoon all the retail stores
in the city will be closed. It will be
the last of the Thursday half-nolidays
as when the movement was commenced the merchants agreed to close
only during June, July and August.
The mid-week half holiday has been
a great success and none of the merchants are sorry thoy endorsed it. It
has come to stay, the only change
which will likely take plaee next year
being the substitution of September
for June. This year June waB a very
wet month and the boldiays were of
very little good to the employers and
employees. September, on the other
hand, is generally one ot the moBt
delightful months of the year.

ground, and tbe firemen in turn put
on the belt, wh icb has a strong snap
hook in front, through which the line
is allowed to slip aftor a hitch has
been made to check the speed of the

the rope, not being properly caught
in tho hook, slipped and caused
several nasty burns on the hands of
the fireman who was descending
Fireman Stutter was the (list to get
thc hitch arianged properly and slid
down at tho correct speed, and Boon
became proficient with the device,
which is certainly a most useful   one.
A new water main is being laid on

was necessary to lower them to the
level of the new main. Yesterday a
boy named Maekrstocker was riding a
horse along the street, and coming to
the place whero the excavations commenced turned the horse on to the
side walk and continued on his way.
Ho had only gone a short distance bo
foro thc horse attempted to get Dack
to the roadway and In doing so went
down into tho drain, snapping oft" a
Bmall water pipe at its junction with
the main. Neither boy nor horse was
hnrt, but the wHter from the pipe
quickly Hooded the drain",doing some
damage to tbem before the main was
turned off.

Popular Nelson Husiness Man Deserts
tho Ranks of the Bachelors.
Yesterday at fi p. in. J. A. Kirk-
patrick, the well known Nelson business man, property owner and capitalist, took unto himself a wife in the
person ol Miss Jessie (1. McKay of
Shubenacadir, Nova Scotia. Tho news
was received iu the city by some of
Mr. Kirkpatrick's personal friends
with considerable surprise as it was
not generally known that his eastern
trip was to have any such intensting
development. A large number of telegrams were despatched from here last
night to tho Nova Scotia town with
the unpronounceable name.
Mr. and Mrs. Kirkpalriuk will visit
the Tan-American exposition and
other points of interest before coming
gradually rising from the waters of
the lake and the Lardeau river, a considerable portion of which has just
been cleared of timber. The railway
now building from Kootenay Lake is
expected to reach the point very
shortly, which will be the terminus
'or the present.
Arrangements have just been completed whereby the company have
acquired an interest is Trout Lake
City at thu upper or west end of Trout
Lake, where the company intend
building a freight shed and wharf.and
as soon as the railway is completed
to Twin Falls the coinpany intend
placing a steamboat on Trout Lake,
which with tnose now operating there
will afford shipping facilities for tbe
mines around Trout Lake City and
Mr. F. C. Elliot of Twin Falls and
Trout Lake City, is local agent fur the

The Situation in Rossland as Sized
Up By Tho Rossland Woild.
The ai rival here last night of Henry
tiratnober, the San Francisco mining
eugineer,who has figured prominently
in Le Roi matters of late, and E. B.
Braden, formerly manager of the
mint at Helena and now representing
tho United States smelter trust, has
excited a great deal of local   interest.
Neither of the gentlemen mentioned
has anything to say for publication,
but plenty of people who know all
about it are ready to explain matters,
and the situation promises to grow
exceedingly inteiesting from this
time on.
Mr. Bernard Macdonald was down
town this morning but he is not
known to have called on Mr. Bratno-
ber���nor is he likely to do so. It is
not probable either that Mr. Bratno-
ber will call at the B. A C. ofllcers
��� for the present.
Tbe San Francisco mining man is
populany supposed to represent here
the element in London which has succeeded in ousting Whitaker Wright
from the Le Roi directorate. Two
weeks ago this same element announced that they controlled somo
40,000 shares of Le Roi stock and
were daily receiving assurances of
support from all parts of tbe old
country. Tbeir last circular includes
a thorough reconstruction of Le Roi
affairs. It is well known that neither
Mr. Bratnober nor his London associates are at all fiiendly to the management of Mr. Macdonald here and at
Northport and a change is inevitable.
Manager Macdonald has not been
altogether idle, he took a party of
Rossland supporters down to North-
port yesterday and demonstrated satisfactorily to them that everything
was going on smoothly there. There
was also a rumor on the street this
morning that one of Whitakei
Wright's last acts was to sign a now
contract with his Rossland manager,
engaging his services for a period of
three years, and consequently Mr.
Macdonald feels more than ev3r secure
in his position, even if other people
have doubts about it.
The week promises to be bcth an
interesting and exciting one, and
further dovlopments are anxiously
awaited. ���Rossland World.   '

The big Shay engine that plied for
many months between Smelter junction and Rossland has be .mi sent to
Ebolt. She will be utilized to haul
ore on the hill out of Phoenix, a run
of about ten miles similar in almost
every respect to the Rossland hill. As
the Shay was opr rated most successfully at Rossland, it is only natural
to suppose that the big mill will be
equally useful at Phoenix. When the
mines on Red Mountain recommence
shipping ore, No. Ill will be brought

The Yellow Plague Has Been Entirely Suppressed iu Havana.
Washington, Aug. 23.���The War
Department, through the division of
insular affairs, bus published a statement indicating what has been done
by the military authorities toward
ridding the Island of Cuba of yellow
fever. Pointing out that in 1800 tho
death rate from yellow fever was
twenty per cent, of all whom had the
disease, the reports show that now,
after two years of Ameriuan rule,
Santiago is as clean as any American
city and has had no yellow fever since
December 27, 1800. Its banishment
from Santiago, its habittion for four
hundred years, was accomplished by
cleanliness and energy intelligently
