It is said that the Yankees are
much bigger men than the Spaniards and that is an important advantage for the Americans in this
war. In stature the haughty Don is
at least among the Europeans, averaging only 5 feet 5*, inches in height.
The soldiers who fight under the
stars and stripes average 5 feet, 7J
inches in height. Their average
weight is 10 pounds more than that
of the Spaniards, and the average
chest measurement is 2 inches greater. Of course, sine is not everything
in a soldier, but other things being
equal, the bigger and stronger man
has an advantage.

that attended���100 from Slocan City, 100
i"��m New Denver, 50 from Nelson ami
probabtt 60 from Sandon and Three
I orka���greatly enjoyed the sport** and
the hospitality of the Silverton people,
for which our alater town is prominently
commended.   The failure to secure the
services of the fcnverbsnd and the foot*
ball team detracted considerably from
tbe exercise* of the day. and made the
crowd -Jkuch smaller than it otherwise
would have been. But overshadowing
this is the fact that Kaalo held a celebration of greater magnitude and offered
greater inducements to pleasure seekers.
The Slocan City bana waa in attendance at Silverton. The sporta of the
day began shortly after 11 o'clock. The
single scull race was won by K. Covington over L. O'Reilly, and the double
scull by Covington and Henderson over

When the C. P. R. is forced to meet
competition it does so with a determination to win.   The. company* late
activity in the' Trail creek Is evidence
ofthisfsct.   Two lead stacks are to
be constructed at Trail.    The company proposes to smelt the ores ot the
Slocan, and will brook no competition
from any source.    They are in a position to transport  and treat ores
cheaper than any other individual or
corporation.   Two lead furnaces have
been ordered, and general details tor
the new plant are complete.    At the
smelter everything is in a state ot
activity, and the work already done
shows wonderful changes.    It is useless to ask when the smelter will be
blown in, but of course not until there
is sufficient roasted ore on band. One
roast heap is ready to Are, and the
big Blake crasher is working steadily.   The old reverberatory furnaces
have been torn down, and two sd-
dithmal blasts will be erected, making four in all, witb a capacity of
MX) tons daily.    There will also be
one reverberatory for matte refining.
About 100 tons of ore are being received daily from the War Eagle and
Centre Star, and soon the War Eagle
shipments will cover thst amount

Gladstone has not been a consistent
man in public lite, nor free from serious errors. Inheriting strong sympathies with the Conservatives, he
became ultimately a leader ot the
Liberals. But it is probably not so
much bis public works that has endeared the man to the hearts ot all
people as it la his personality. He
was a Godfearing man. He was
above all else a man of deep convictions'- he never faltered when he
knew his dutv, and never sacrificed
one iota of what he believed to be
right for the plaudits of his people.
He was powerful. His was a master
mind. It was the force ot bis great
intellect and the strength of bis resolute will which gave him his power
at borne and his influence abroad.
How thoroughly he dominated the
party which he led is evidenced by
the absence of such leadership since
he left active public life. The Liberal
party does not lack men of ability,
men who are quite as astute, perhaps
as Mr. Gladstone, but none of them
seem to possess the ability to dominate the political thought of the time
as lie did.
With the death of England* grand
old commoner the Gladstone of the
world has passed away. No actor on
the stage of life during the last halt
century hss occupied so prominent a
place in the public eye as Gladstone.
Ihe part whicii he played in the
drama is well known. A man who
was as humble before his God as he
was powerful over his fellows; aa
earnest and simple as a child in his

The troopers saluted, tbe drums and

"If wc can make it clear to the world
that Spain is responsible for the destruction of our battleship, there is no question of our being able to be indemnified.
But is it the best way, because 258 men
have already been killed, to kill 10 or
50 or 100,000 more���not only Americans,
but Spaniards as well? And did it
never occur to you in all these matters
that it is never the right person that
gets killed when yon go to war? These
men that we should send out in our
armies, they are not responsible. Whv
should we kill them? The poor Spaniards that would meet us in defence,
aey are not the ones that blew up tbe
aine. Whv should we kill them?"���

the Messiah, New York.
"Were you ever caught in a sudden

l��oat captain.
"Well, I rather guess sol" replied the
captain. "I'm the father oT three pain
of twins!"
"And, then, think of the deaths and
the heart aches. If these men who are
crying loudly for war could see and
hear a battlefield, and could think of
their own sons aa there, it might hush
their barbaric enthusiasm a little.
Think of the hundreds and thousands
of men, their bodies torn, mangled in
every conceivable way, trodden over
by the infantry, ridden over by the
cavalry, wounded, neglected, crying for
a cup of water, thrilling through every
nerve with pain, dreaming in their
agony of the loved onea-at home. Then
go to*the rear and see the surgeons at
work���see piles, perhaps, of arms or

States assay office in Helena, Is one
of the most exhaustive ever made
covering the mineral output of tbe
state. It is too long to be reproduced
in full. After a most careful and
painstaking investigation Mr. Brad
en finds that the mineral output of
Montara in 1897 was the largest in
the history of tbe state, aggregating
���58,954,675.03, which is 13.222,57& 90
In excess of any previous year.
Gratifying as this may be to every
loyal Montanian, the significance of
the following statement cannot be
too seriously regarded : 'Silver mining, as an Industry in Montana, continues to decrease In Importance.
With the exception of silver properties at Elkhom, Castle and Nelhart,
and the Hope mine at Philipsburg,
all of the famous silver-producing
mines of former years are Idle.'
'-his easy to gather from Mr.
Braden'a very able report that were
it possible to revive silver mining in
its fullness, and add that branch of
the Industry to the mining ot copper
and gold as now conducted, Montana
would easily take front rank as tbe
greatest star in the firmament of the

War Eagle Stock -Goes Up.
Toronto, Ob*., May 25,-War
Eagle stock is ia great demand.
The growing ease in money is causing Investors to look around for
something that will yield them over
5 per cent. As the War Eagle is
now a regular shipper and is likely
to pay dividends soon, the stock is
being quietly absorbed by Investors.
It Is sold today as high as $1.67 with
very little offering.
Blockade at Glenora.
Victoria, B. G, May 25.-Cept.
Foster, who arrived from Glenora
per steamer Islander via Nanaimo
to-day, confirms the report of a
blockade at Glenora, tbe head of
navigation on the Stickeen, where
5,000 people are absolutely unable to
get through on account of tbe impassable condition of the trails.
A Strike on Wood burn.
A few days ago something was
said of an important strike on what
is known as tne ���'Swede*** group on
Woodbury creek. There seems to
be oo doubt that the owners bsve
really got something worth having.
The claims are {he Tecnmseh and
Pontiac, and are located near the
headwaters of Woodbury creek,
about li miles from the fake. The
owners are Frank Heap and Martin
Heath, of Ainsworth, who are bow
preparing a carload shipment.
A remarkable feature about this
group te thst It was bonded by a
strong English syndicate last year,
represented bv L. Al Scowden of
Kaslo. *��     ?
Prersratioos for extensive oper-
ations were made aad much work
was actually done. Probably 115,*
000 was spent on the property when
the psystreak thinned out and anally
disappeared. Work waa aeon discontinued and the bond thrown up.
At this juncture Messrs. Heap ami
Heath, to whom the property reverted, began work again, and with the
expenditure of less than ISO struck a
chute of clean galena ore that bids
talr to make a dividend-paying proposition of the group at once.
Kaslo'a Celebration.
wheels had subsided the player* discovered that their audience had gone
to supper and some of Kaslo's youthful hopefuls had swiped all tbe balls,
so the game was called off with Sandon winners, 11 to 9. Dolan and
Oompeau, Ssndon's battery, were a
surprise party to the Nelson people
who couldn't seem to locate Dolan s
eccentrics. Herbert, Nels.ni '.<twirier,
is something of a mechai i-nt so
wild that he couldn't hit a tick of
tome nsystacks. It was tin intention to have the winner* jlay off
with the Kaslo freaks on Wednesdsy
but the idea was abandoned.
The hose reel contest, which waa
the most interesting feature of the
programme, waa brought on about
7 o'clock In the evening. Nelson,
who had first try, made a slow run
but a rapid coupling and got water
at 33 seconds. Sandon had next
torn and made a run that waa a
regular whirlwind, leaving them
over ten seconds to get water, but
the hydrant men got out In their
calculations and missed the hydrant
by about two feat. It was hard lock,
fbr our boys had a sure game; but
''thevcome that way sometimes.0
The Kaslo people followed and made
a good showing, but the time- keepers
were undecided about tbe time, (toe
had 33 seconds, another 32 1-5, and
the third a wsteh that stepped. It
wis finally atrnpt-omised by dividing
the stakes, giving $75 each to Kaslo
and Nelson. Some of the Sandon
boys had a ���dx-buadred-dollar eonfi-
dence in their team ami wanted to
arrange a matabed race for the Best
day but Kaslo and Nelson people
never were real sports anyway.
Tbe horse race* did not come off
until almost dark, There were only
three entries, Bruce White's "Greasy
Buck.M L. P. Hatraa's ������Unto Nell/'
and Billy WatassieyVTnay.'' The
race, which waa over a 250-yard
course, was altogetner unliiteftating
as Greasy Buck "could beat everything In sight without an effort.
The usual fiasco of fireworks waa
rung in after dark, but most of the
boys were too busy to notice anything of that kind. Soma of them,
in tact, did not have time to catch
tbe train In the morning, although
they had often caught bigger trains
than that just as early hi the day.
It Is rumored thst one or two parties
are not home vet.
All things considered, the Kaslo
celebration could be counted as a
success. The weather was what was
ordered aad a good crowd attended
from Sandon, New Denver aad Nelson. The New Denver band and
foot-ball club went over on Monday
evening and an early train on Tuesday took a large crowd from Sandon,
arriving about 9:30. The Kokanee,
carrying the Odd Fellows' excursion
from Nelson did not arrive until
In the forenoon the running ant!
jumping contests were put through
iu the usual indiscriminate manner
of sueh events. Nearly all the prizes
were divided between George Mc-
Leod of Sandon, Kennedy and
Thompson of Nelson, and Dill and
McKinnon, of Kaslo.
Tbe base ball game waa put on
about 3:30, Sandon vs. Nelson Up
to the second half of tbe fourth ft
waa a good game but Sandon fell
down there and Nekton got in a procession of five runs. During the fifth
the playing was wild and woolley
everywhere and finally 1b tie last
half the umpire gave a decision that
almost created a revolution among
Sandon players.   When tbe chin-
