Washington, Dec. 13���The mo:t
prolonged, interesting and important
nuval tribunal ever held in Hub
country came to a close today, having
an upon and a secret session lasting
tlirse months, short of one week,when
Secretary Long was handed lhe findings of the coort of inquiry, which
inquii"d into Ihe col'duct of Rear Admiral Schley during the Santiago campaign The result was a complete surprise. Instead of ono report there were
two. Both were signed by Oeorge
Dewey, president nnd Sam C. Lemly
as judge advocate. This is a form snid
lo he recognized in all Courts of inquiry, the signatures of other members
nut being necessary, but it is explained tlut Admiral Dewey signed lhe
serood report, a minority report, to
express his qualification of or dissent
from thc views expressed by the court,
comprising beside himself, Admiral
llenliam and Ramsey lu the first

proceedings in this celebrated case on

Washington, Dec. 13 ���The report
of the Sihley court of inquiry was
promulgated by Secretary iiong to
night. There are two reports. Admirals Benham and Ramsey concur in
the first which is signed by Admiral
Dewey, as a matter of form. Admiral Dewey makes a separate report,
although he agrees to the finding of
facts suoscrihed by the others. The
majority report condems Admiral
S-hley on 11 points, while Admiral
Dewey Bustalnes him in most
The majori'y opinion flnds.in brief,
that Admiral Sohley should have proceeded with the utmost despatch to
Cicnfiiegos and maintained a close
blockade; that he should have endeavored to have obtained information
abont the Spanish squadron there;
that he should have proceeded to
Santiigo with despatch; that he
should not hav3 made the retrograde
movement; that he should have obeyed the department's orders; that he
should have endeavored to capture the
Spanish vessels in Santiago; that he
did not do his utmost to destroy the
Colon, that he caused the squadron to
lose distance in the loop of the
Brooklyn ; that he thereby caused the
Texas to back; that bo did injustice
to Rodgosn ; that his conduct in the
campaign was characterized by vac-
clllntion, dilatoriness and lack of
enterprise; that his official reports on
the coal supply are misleading and in-
nmirate ; that his conduct during the
initio was self-possessed and that he
encouraged in his ' own person his
Admiral Dewey, in his report says
tint the passage to Cicnfuegos was
made with all despatch; that in view
of his coal supply the blockade of
Cientucgos was effective; that he allowed the Adula to enter CienfuegoB
to get Information; that his passage
to Santiago was with as much dis-
r��l��li as possible, keeping the squadron together; that the blockade off
Santiago was effective, and, finally
that he was tbe senior officer oil San-
lingo, in absolute command and entitled to the credit due for the glorious victory which roBulted in the
total destruction of the Spanish
The report of tbe court of Inquiry
opens with a statement that the court
"having concluded the investigations,
reports its proceedings and the testimony taken, with a full and detailed
statement of all the facts which it
'Items to be pertinent, together with
the opinion and recommendation in
the premises."
The first (acts recited are Id regard
to the departure of tbe Hying squadron under command of Commodore
Sohlev from Key West on May inth,
1MIN under orders to nroeeed with
utnioHt despatch off Clenluegos to
oipture the enemy off   that   coast,   if
Inquiry j (lenfuegoi and  blocakde that
close as posBllbe."
Then thu report treats Ihe incidents tbat happened dui ing the Cien-
fucgos blockade, including the arnval
thore,of the Dupont wilh a despatch
from the commander in chief, which
stated that the Spanish squadron was
probably at Santiago and ordered
Commodore Schley, if ho was satisfied
that the Spanish squadron was not at
Cicnfuegos, to "proceed with all despatch, but cautiously to Santiago de
Cuba and if the enemy is there blockade him iu that port."
On May 2uth the squadron stopped
about Tl miles to the southward of the
poit of Santiago and was joined by
the scouts Minneapolis, Yale and St.
Paul. The engines of the collier Mer-
riraac were temporarily disabled. Regarding Admiral Schley's reply to the
department's later and more imperative order tu ascertain if the Spanish
squadron were in Santiago as all lhe
dcpaitmcnt's information indicated,
in which the admiral said:
"It is to be regretted that the department's orders cannot be obeyed,
earnestly as we have all striven to
that end. I am forced to return to
Key West, via the Yucatan passage,
for coal. I ean ascertain nothing certain concerning the enemy. I r.ati
obligod to send the Eagle to Port
Antonio, Jamaica, yosterday as she
bud only 27 tons of coal on board. I
will leave the St. Paul here. I will
require 9,500 tons of coal at Key
The court declares: "That on that
da'e, the Hying squadron was accompanied by the collier Merrimac, containing 4,350 tons of coal. The
amount of coal required to completely
All the cool bunkers of all these vessels of the Hying squadron on tbe
same date waa 2,750 tons. The con
ditious of the wind, i'ea and weather
from noon on May SOtb to June 1st
were favorable for taking coal from a
collier at sea oft Santiago de Cuba."
The court then finds: "Commodore
Schley made no effort to ascertain
whether tbe Spanish squadron was in
the harbor of Santiago. He left the
said harbor entirely unguarded from 0
p. m. of May 28th to 5 p. m. May
27th, and guarded only by the scout
St. Paul from 5 p.m., May 27th, until
about 6 a.m., of May 28th. The flying
squadron arrived off tho harbor of
Santiago de Cuba, seven miles south
of the Mono at 0 p. m. May 28th and
established a blockade. Commodore
Schley did not proceed with despatch
from Cienfuegos to Santiago de Cuba.
"Early on the morning of May 29th,
tbe Cristobal Colon and other vessels
of the Spanish squadron were disoov
ered at anchor in the harbor of SantI
ago about 1,200 yards from the entrance. No attempt was made by
Commodore Schley on May 29th or
May 30th to capture or destroy these
Spanish vessels."
The court then goes into the luci
dent of the firing on May 30th between the Massachusetts, Iowa and
New Orleans, on one side, and the
Colon and shore batteries, on the
other, and declares that the ships
pss-ed thc harbor entrance, about
7,000 yards distant from the Morro,
firing at the Colon and the shore batteries, with ranges varying from
7,000 yards to 8,200 yards and that all
projectiles fell short.
Continuing it says: "When
ships hud pussed to the eastward of
the enhance the flagship turned off
shore, followed in succession by the
other ships, repassed the entrance and
Ured au before, but w ith ranges varying from 9,000 to 11,000 yards. Some
of    these   projectiles   fell   near     the
"The blockade was maintained at
an average distance of about 6 to 7
miles from the harbor entrance during tbe day and probably somewhat
nearer during the night."
Coming to the battle of July 3rd,
the court finds in part as follows:
"The Brooklyn stood towards the
Spanish vessels with varying helm,
fired Bhort.anc' then engaged with hei
port battery. When about 1,400 yards
distant from the leading Spanish
ship, the Teresa, thc Brooklyn turned
to starboard with her helm hardaport,

He should have endeavored on May

communicating with the insurgents.
He should have proceeded from Cienfuegos to Santiago with all despatch,
nd should have disposed his vessels
with a view of intercepting the enemy
in any attempt to pass the flying
squadron. He should Dot have delayed the squadron for the Eagle. He
should uot have made the retrngacie

He should have promptly obeyed lhe
Davy department's orders of May 25th.
He should have endovored to capture

anchor near the entrance of Santiago
harbor on May 29th and 30th. He did
not do his utmost with Ihe force under
his command to capture or destroy the
Colon and other vessels of the enemy
which he attacked on May 31.
Commodore Schley's conduct in
connection with thc events of the
Santiago campaign prior to .Tune 1st,
1898, was characterized by vacillation, dilatoriness and lack of enterprise. His official reports regaroing
coal supplies and coaling facilities of
the flying squadron were inaccurate
and misleading. His conduct during
the battle of July 3rd was self-
possessed and he enoouraged in his
owd persoD his subordiDale officers
and men to fight courageously.

Judge Advocate General, U.S.N.
In view of the length of time which
has elapsed since the occurrence of Ihe
events of the Santiago campaign, the
court recommends no further proceedings be held iu the premises.
C. 1'. R. CHANGES.
Montreal, Dec. 12.���It is announced
than the purpose of tho appointment
of I, G. Ogden and G. M. Bosworlh,
third and fourth vice-presidents respectively of the C.R., is to re-organize the management of the system
under three distinot heads, viz: 1).
McNicoll, second vice-president, to be
head and have absolute control of ail
operating department; I. G. Ogdeu,
third vice-president, to have absolute
control of all mBtters of finance ; G.
M. Bosworth, fourth vice-president,
to have absolute control ot all matters
of traffic. These three heads are to
be responsible only to the president,
all subordinate officials in each
branch of the service to be responsible
to these three heads. It is thought
that this system, which is in line
with the American roads, will aim*
plify the management of this great
score for the team. At 8 go'lock McLaren astonished the crowd with a
spurt and gained a circuit of the oval.

to hear disclosures against "Dr
John Alexander Howie iu the suit for
the appointment ot a receiver for his

was on the stand most of the morning
and continued his testimony charging
Dowie withV defrauding him out of
large sums nf money. Letters lrom
the general overseer to Stevenson
were read and created a buzz of comment. The plainitfl's testimony
tended to show that "Dr," Dowie
used honeyed words and a show of
considerable feeling to induce Stevenson to pari with his money, but that
later, when Stevenson learned that
Dowie claimed entire ownership in
thc lacu industries, Dowie's attitude
changed to ouc of abnse.

News   From   the   Nelson   Hoys   Who
Like South Africa.
A. E. Gardner, of this city, yesterday reoeived a letter from his brother,
Harry D. Gardner, now with the
South African Constabulary. The
letter is dated Nov. 2nd, from King
eradorp, and at that time he waB well
and enjoying himself uot too badly.
He likes tho life well, though the
weather is a little too hot sometimes,
particularly, he says, when they run
into a body of the enemy. They had
been on the veldt for six months and
had seen a town only once in that
time, in September when he had a
run dowD to Johannesburg, and had a
good time. Money is plentiful and
he thinks it will be a good place
when tbe war is over.
A note is enolosed from W. H.
Smith, also a Nelson boy, who is in
the same troop. Both make many inquiries of their Nelson friends to
whom they wish to be remembered.

The four bylaws, providing for the
raising of {170,000 by way of debentures, to pruvide tile eity with electric
light plunt, au lslotition hospital, fire
alarm system and a hi^h school.
have been before the city ratepayers
since December Oth, and, therefore,
they have had ample time in which 10
consider whether it would be expedient to adopt thein all or only a portion of them. Tho principal bylaw
provides f'-r the borrowing of 8150,000
for the purpose of providing an electric light plant and polo line. The
money ti provide for the Interest on
the deflbentures and for tbe sinking
fund must be raised by direct taxation
on oity property. The passage of the
bylaw would increase the tux on
realty. The existing bonded Indebtedness of tne oity is $276,000 and with
the increase of $150,OoO would make a
total debt of 842?,000.
The bylaw providing for the raising
of 810,000 for a high school should bo
adopted. Nelson has advantages as
an educational centre owing to Its
unsurpassed location nnd superior
climate, and, therefore, anything that
will add to the educational advantages shun Id be fostered and encouraged. The high school will be money
well Invested.
The bylaw providing for the raising
of $5,000 for tne isolation hoaiptal,
should be voted down for the reason
that $1,000 should be sufficient for the
purpose of providing a suitable building for this purpose. Rossland has an
isolation hospital which cost considerably less than $1,000, judging from
its appearance. Should there evei be
a general outbreak of smallpox additions cuuld be made to the isolation
hospital.but this is a contingency that
Is not likely to arise.
The bylaw for the raising of the
$5,000 far a lira alarm system should
be adopted as tt will increase the
efficiency of the fire depaitment by-
giving it earlier information uf the
existence of fires, and so greatly
lessen the chances uf a larp.c and de-
structve conflagration. With a good
fire alaim system and an increase in
the fire department in keeping with
the growth of the city there should
never be any very large fires here,
and tbo liie alarm system is a necessary portion of any well regulated
and effective fire department. The
bylaw to provide funds for the fire
alarm system should, therefore, be
So far as the electric light bylaw is
concerned it should be voted down.
The mining interests, owing to the
low price of silver and lead, are under
a cloud and no one can tell bow long
the present condition of affairs will
last. It may be some time before Nelson or any pther of the towns of
Kootenay will advance much ami it
is a time for municipalities to keep
out of debt. When, however, matters,
take a turn for the better, and prosperity is greater, will lie the time to
branch out because there will then be
more assurance that we can meet
obligations when they becomo due.
At present, however, it, would bo extremely unwise to add $150,0011 to the
indebtedness of the city and to run
the taxes on real estate and improvements higher than they are ot
present. In a year from now there
should be a change for the better and
then perhaps we can provide the elee-

Accopmanying Mr. Stitt, general
ag��nt of the 0. P. R., to Australia,
was a carload of advertising matter
on Canada, shipped by the Canadian
Pacific adverstising department. This
load of interesting matter consists of
pamphlet! bearing on the agriculural,
mineral, meteorological,zoological and
other resources of the Dominion, anil
nailers descriptive of the trip acroSB
he continent by way of the Canadian
railway. There aie also a large nu-n-
ner of photographs of Cnnaidan
scenery. the C.P.U. makes few
errors in business judgment, and it
would not spend sooh largo sums on
advertising if it did not pay.
Tho time is not far distant when
thero will bo no further need for
horses for the propelling of fire apparatus and tbls will cut out one of the
large expenses in the maintenance of
lire departments. A recent number of
thc Scientific American has an article
on self propelling lire engines. It
states that these machines are now
used iu Hoston and New Orleans,
the Boston autos weigh nearly nine
tons, yet they are handled and placed
in position more readily than a horso
engine. They answer second alarms
from dangerous districts and are considered more reliable an hill climbers
than horses, indeed, they force their
way through snow that would stop a
horse drawn engine. The largest
throws an average of 870 gallons of
water each minute which is double
that of the average hoise drawn engine. On one occasion an auto played
1,500 gallons of water in a minute.
On trials through a one and one-quarter inch hose of 100 feet in length a
stream was projected 34!) feet, and
through a one aud one-quarter inch
nozzle to a height of 330 feet.
The autos are always first at a fire.
The expense of keeping up steam
is considerable, but the New Orleans
fire officials declare that coal costs one
haif less than horse feed. The self
propelling fire engine it seems has
come to stay.

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of doty, having tested the
wonderful effect of yonr Asthmnlene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afBcted with spasmodic asthma,for th��> past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted witb this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. FHELPb, M. D.

Tlie new woman is coming to the
front in a number of lines and now
there is a movement in England to
permit lhe appointment of women as
assistant curaies. This is an innovation indeed, as the tendency and the
practice has been in the direction of
ihe million! injunction that women
Khali keep qniet in the churches. The
change in attitude of a few in this
respect has been doubtless wrought
by the societies which have grown up
around tho ohurchcE in tho guilds,
sisterhoods, etc., in which women
occupy such positions as deaconesses
nnd otlnir official places. It is suggested by the London Daily Telegraph tbat the "lady curate" would
nrove of great help tn her superior,
yhe could teach the village girls,
stimulate interest in athletics among
her parishioners and so interest them
more and more in the church and generally exert a good Induence. The
Telegraph adds, "The Bishops and
many more are deploring the dearth of)
candidates for ordination, and it IB
here that the ��nergotlcr~J>ractic��l and
womanly lady curate will be a valu-
able ally " There is considerable
opposition to the lady curate, however, and it will probably be some
time before she becomes a regular
institution, owing to the conservatisms of the Charch of England.

J     MINING NEWS.     |
Ymir people in town lately hpeak
in the rnoKt satlPfied one of the general condition of the mining industry
in that vicinity, where the mines seem
tj be mailing good profits and the
men good wages. The Ymir mine is
pushing work both in the matter of
development and on the cyanide plant
and when that is finished the output
will be large. The Fog Horn has
done considerable development work
all fall and now is ready to ship.
When sufficient snow comes for sleighing it is calculated that about a cur
load a day will be shipped. The
Wilcox, In the same viciDity, and is
Hacking ore and will ship soon.
In the vicinity of Salmo and Eric
great actiivty prevails. The Arlington is treating 70 tons a day ill the
concentrator and four four-horse
teams are hauling ore to the station.
Teaming has been interfered with on
account of lack of snow and consequent bad roads. There is probably
in hi tuns uf clean ore at the mine
awaiting shipment. The Second Relief has a force of about 00 men and
on thc first of the month started the
mill. There nre 20 stamps in operation and a concentrator as well.
Manager Briokstock has a force of
men for the London and B. 0. Gold-
fields, doing preliminary and surface
work on the claims bonded from (j.
Ilirtch. The Fern is working under
leaie and development is going on on
several smaller properties
There is a probability of the
Dundee's starting np within a short
time, and the Tamarac people may
resume work on a larger scale than
before and upon new lines.
E. Nelson Fell, who was In the
city yesterday stated to a Miner
reporter that the situation at the
Athabasca was yet unchanged. It is
not unlikely that Mr. Fell may visit
England in connection with the
affairs of the company but noth'ng
definite has been arranged. He states
that the mine is looking very good,
the development work done during the
past summer having been productive
of very encouraging results. The
principal work done consisted in
drifting on the vein in what is known
as No. 2,east tunnel. Tbe vein is now
more uniform and capable of cheaper
working that it has ever been before,
but the values will probably not be us
high as in the past. Mining now,
however, can be carried on profitably
in values from one-third to one-half
lens than was possible in the broken
area of the schitt encountered before
the granite formation was reached.
The plant is in fine working order,
and the cyanide plant has entirely
fulfilled the expectations that were
felt regarding it. Thc process seems
particularly adapted to the ores of the
A. Zettler has just returned ^rom
Rossland when- he attended a meeting
of the Referendum mine. It was decided, owing to the difficulty of get
ting in supplies, to close down the
mine until the spring. It was reported at the ���fleering that the work during the last two or three months had
produced very satisfactory results. A
shaft has been sunk on a new lend to a
depth of 3.1 feet. There Is ore in the
shaft all the way down, the ledge
being two feet in width. The ore
from the bottorn e,f this ledge, accord
ing to the last assay, goes 13.02 ounces
to the ton or a total of (200.40. A
five stump mill has been packed to a
site nt the mine. The intention is to
put this up in the spring and utilize
it for the rcducticii of the ore from the
Referendum The directors are very
much pleased with the way the property is turning out.
Enterprise zone and, odd to relate,
the good luck was equally divided,
two of the strikes being on Ten Mile
and two on Springer creek. First the
Iron Horse breaks into 4 to 10 inches
of ore, then the Arlington hits 12
inches on its east vein, next the
Speculator taps 21 iuches on the east
vein, and now the Neepawa uncovers
20 inches of first class mineral.
Truly, from a mining standpoint, the
sulfation in the camp is   encouraging,

When a man acts as he believes the
Infinite within him would have him
act, he draws power to bimscif from
unseen sources; that power may be
shown in many ways.
Things work smoother, plans curry
out, people begin to say, '-lucky;"
'he's a winner;" "everything he
touohes succeeds, '���' etc.
Ever try it? If you ever do, you
will agieo that it is the greatest proposition on earth.
There is a marvelous potency behind
the man who acts in a simple,
straightforward wny, ns near as he
knows, in accordance with the
promptings of thnt Invisible Deity

J. Eirkup, government agent at
Rossland, was in Nelson yesterday.
At tlie record office yesterday the
following agieement waa recorded.
Upon the sale of the Flying Dutchman group of mines and other interests in claims on Toad Mountain of
Harry I,arsley, for $12,000, or more,
we promise and agree to pay to Frank
Larsley the sura "f $1,300 in D. S.
gold coin. Signed _. A. Hutchinson,
W. H. Hutchinson. A certificate of
of work was issued to E. Peters on
the Comstuck claim.
The new fire bell yesterday cracked
from the rim for a considerable dis
tunce up the side, and is now entirely
useless. It was fully guaranteed by
the manufacturers, so the loss will
not fall on the city, except in the
time that it will be without a bell.
It has been suggested that sonic one
either in the city hall, or else considerably interested lu it, has the gift of
the "evil eye" and from the way
both bells and fire horses seem affected there would seem to be something
in the idea.
Dealers in flour and food stnffs expected daily to receive notification of
an adavuee In price but such has not
oome. All prices in Eastern markets
for the past few weeks have fluctuated
much but these fluctuations have not
affected the purchase price of stocks
in the west, most of which were
bought before the rise. Wheat was
lower yesterday end in consequence
the price of flo-ir Is not expected to
advance here until the altered condition ol the market becomes crystallised into a settled condition.

Martin O'Reilly & Co. in making their Closing Out Announcement, beg to tender their thanks to
their many friends and customers for past patronage during the time they have been in business in Nelson.
We propose giving the public generally, a life's opportunity of buying Dry Goods at prices never before
approached in the Kootenays or elsewhere. During the past week our store has daily presented a lively appearance, and we feel satisfied that our many customers went away highly pleased with their bargains. The
startling reductions in every department has been the means of greatly reducing our stock; but we still have
an enormous Stock of Goods to sell, and if Price Breaking can do it,another week will see our fixtures with
less goods on them.
