Fur Grand   Turki
Among the other properties thai have
come to the front iu this section during
the prist reason, and taken its place
among the ranks of shippers, is the Comstock, a property that ranks among the
very first and that has emerged from a
mere prospect to a finely developed mine
with nearly, if not quite, 2000 leet of
developoraent work donoon it, consisting
ol tunnels, winses, crosscuts and raises.
It is ftafo to say that no other property
in the Slocan Lake district lias accomplished more in tho same length ol time
or have done their work to better advantage or kept it in better sbapo than the
Comstock, The property is situated ten
miles shove Silveiton on a lork ot Four
Mile creek. It is connected with Silver-
ton by a wagon mad that runs to within
one an 1 a half miles of the mine, where-
supplies sre delivered by the wagons to
Bwait transportation the balance of tlie
distance to the mine, being hauled fit
winter on rawhides and in the summer
packed by mules. The intention of tlie
company however, tho present season, Is
t.i extend tbe wagon road to the mine.
The proparty i-i advantag.?omly situate 1
so thst it can bo worked to a great depth
by a tunnel system.lbus doing sway with
an expensive hoisting and pumping plan'
an 1 greatly cheaponing the c-et of mining the ore. The general strike or trem)

During Ibe past winter, ind ilha .lev.*l-
opemont work the company took out and
shipped one huiidred and fifty tons of
first-class shipping ore mostly steel galena, a few tons beingrfchcarbonate on*,
besides putting three thousand tow of
concentrating oro oil tha various dumps
The shipping oro runs from 103 to 300
onnces in silver ami fro e 60 to 80 ucr
cent. lead. Aud thc concentrating ore
will cot.centrate live tons into one.
The most important workings consist
of tlie following tunnels—viz. Tunnel
No. 2,wbicb is the farthest working tunnel up the mountain, is in 200 feet and
has cut a shuto of shipping ore and devel-
opod slot of concentrating ore. Tunnel
No.3, is in 270 feet and at the present
lime is being driven night and day. This
tunnel has cut a fine body of shipping
ore and has a large body of concentrating
ore exposed almost its entire length.
Two raises   have   boon   put  through
from this tunnel to No 2,onc raiso being
UO feet, the other 100   feet, thus   making
good air, aud.blocking out a  lot  tf ore
Both raises arc in ore all the  way und
the streak of clean or   shipping  oro,   to
say nothing at all ol tlio   concentrating
or-", ol which there is coneidi-rabbi, varies
from four inches to   two  feet and   will
average eight inches.     There  aro   also
three prospect winzes sunk In this   tunnel in ore nnd go to show   that tho  ore
sliutos continuo   down   ami   when  the
lower tunnols aro driven   in (ar enough
they will undoubtedly  striko   this   rich
■chute. Tunnel No.4. is in a depth of 100
•<*et, is expected to strike the ledgo und
°ro nt almost any time.   Tunnel No.7, la
the next tunnel down the mountuin  and
is in 180 feet, it has exposed mostly concentrating  with   occasional   streaks   of
"bippingore.     Tunnel  No.G.at   which
Place the company btiildlilga  are,    consisting of a  commodious  boarding   and
cook house, two bunk   bouses,  superintendent and foremans houses snd offices,
store house, blacksmith shop, ore house
•nd bins, and ore  sartors building, all
ol which are  in  good shape  and   well
looked alter.   This tunnol, No.5, is now
in 660 feet and is gaining in  length and
depth every day.    It lias exposed a largo
amount of ore, both shipping and   concentrating,  and  is    about   tlio    most
prominent workings of the company.   In
this tunnel is an upraise, now Dp 00 feet.
Tbls will when completed connect  tun-
-els No.6,and 7,.   Tunnel  No. 8,   Is a
tunnel and is the lowest workings of the
mine. It will tap the oro bodies exposed
in the upper tunnels at a great depth,
and although this tunnel is only in a distance of 50 feet it haa been driving
for some time in a nice streak of shipping ore. The company has been steadily developing this property with tbe
view of making a mine, out of it and
erecting a concentrator if the mine justified it, and it lias now so much ore in
sight that the owners feel more than
justified in commencing the erection of
the concentrator, ami will start to build
as noon as the stato of the reads will
permit. The company own a good mill
site convenient to the property and a
water supply that will enablo them to
operate continuously tlie year io nl}|
The company islortunalo in its present,
management, and the property is being
well managed and looked after. The
company is at present working 23 men
having bad to lay off most of its force
owing to the roads, but has ample and
good accomodations for 60 men at tbe
mine. The group of claims owuod by
this company comprise the Ruby Trnst,
Kentucky Girl, Blue Peter, Fraction.

The Mining Committee of the Legis-
lalure at Victoria havo submitted their
report to the House. The most radical
change rcccommended by thcin Is that
only British subjects bcnllowed the right
of locating mineral drums in this Province. Thc clause in question reads as
follows:—- "Every person over, but not
under, 18 years of age, and every joint
company shall lie entitled to all the
right* an privileges of a free miner and
shall be counidered a free miner upon
taking out a free miner's certificate;
provided, bowevpr, that no alien shall be
allowed to record a mineral claim unless
bo has previously and in accordance with
the provisions of the act regulating the
same, declared his intention to become
a Biitish subject, and no Crown grant
shall be issued upon any mineral claim
recorded after the passage of this act,
toauy other person thau a British subject."
Ano'.liei clause in tho report reccom-
inc-nds tho recognition of a minor hold-
ins a free miner's licence as of full age
iu matters relating to his mining property. A miner ia to bo allowed to do more
than one year's assessment work in a
year and receive credit for same. In application for Crown grants tbe applicant
must file conies of the Gazette and ol
the paper advertised in with tbe Gold
Commissioner.
LAKE   AVENUE.
When tlie citizen.] of Siiverton undertake to do anything, everything moves.
When tho grading of Lako Ave. was determined on a short time ago our representative m«*n formed a, committee, and
t he large force of mon now at work is
the reeult of their labor. The sum of
over faOJ.OO was secured with vorv little
difficulty, and a creditable street is now
replacing tho stump field known as Lake
Ave. Great praise is due the executive
committee of this work for tho manner
in which it is being done. Under the
supervision of Foreman Daly tho unsightly banks and boulders are rapidly
disappearing and the slumps are being
disposed of as fast as fire can consume
them.
EASTER EGG SOCIAL.
Tbe social given by tho ladies of Ihe

HER MAJESTY'S OPPOSITION.
Tbe Nelson Miner in a recent issue
says:—"Mr. Hume's motion of want of
confidence failed to find a majority in
favor of it. It is a little difficult to imagine our member bringing forward such a
thing. Good tempered and easy going
not exactly an orator, be lias none of tbe
bluster nnd energy that makes a succss-
ful leader of an opposition rush. The
whole thing however, is typical of the
opposition. Thev are no moro likely to
carry the country with them at the coming elections than they were to carry Mr
Hume's motion of want of confidence.
THE CHAMBER OF MINES.
We have received a copy of tbe rules
and regulations governing the B. G.
Chamber of Mines. Tho object of this
organisation Is the furthering of tbe
mining interests of this province and to
circulate information tending to interest
outside capital in our mines. A perma-
nant salaried secretary has been engaged, who's duties will be the compiling all information of the mineral resources of British Columbia. Those
interested in mining should extend tbeir
support towards this organisation. Tbe
Chamber will, if requested, act as aihi-
trutors in the settling of any mining
disputes, and propose to establish a library and museum of mining interest
open to their membsrs.

will be that American ships will soon
be permitted to penetrate the very
heart of the richest part of China and
American commerce will be exceedingly shortsighted unless It joins in the
exploitation of this land of great commercial promise. This triumph of English diplomacy may tie looked upon as
of Immense value to thc whole English-speaking world, ourselves as well
as Great Britain.
A million bobolinks killed last year!
Four million other birds slaughtered In
the same year—and for what? That
their torn and distorted bodies might be
flaunted In the headgear of American
womankind! Tbere are no guess-work
figures, but the official report of the Audubon Society of Massachusetts. And
what does It mean? It means five million voices stilled In Nature's avian
choir. Five million flashes of cbeeri-
ness and gladness taken from human
life; aod millions of other young lives
doomed to starvation or prey In order
that tbe plumaged corpse of tbe murdered mother bird may be rent by a
milliner and Jammed In hideous shape-
lcasness In milady's hat! Ah, milady,
Is there no efficacy In these desolating
figures? Is there no mercy In your
heart, no conscience In your make-up,
no sentiment In your soul? Can you
enjoy the finest opera when you think
that the killing of the birds with which
you and your sisters ure crowning your
beauty Is gradually silencing the grand
oratorie of the forest and the fields? A
blrdless country! A voiceless forest!
What a desolation it would be! And
yet that Is Just what this country is
coming to If the song birds of our lam!
are to be killed off at Klie rate of five
millions a year In order to gratify feminine vanity and keep woman "in
style." What a grewsome, hideous,
conscienceless "style" It Is that murders melody and silences Ihe lark that

III.-nil..11 of the Island—Spain's
Offer of Arhllrntlon.
Are the statements about Spain's decadence true, or are they false? Hnve
descriptions of her antiquated Institutions, her barbaric social com!I ".Ions,
her Industrial death, lieen mere exaggerations to enforce baseless argument? Is this view of Spain purely an
American view ? At one time this little
sun dried corner of Europe coutalued
about all there was or European
thought. Then Ferdinand came nnd
burned the baths of Cordova because,
he said, Christians never bathed. Then
this corner was the seat of power for
several generations. Then It began to
go to ruins. What it is to day an article
In the National Review, a Loudon publication, indicates somewhat \lvldly.
"Decadent Spain" is the title. This is
what It says: "Spain is not only devoid of progressive spirit, but she cun-
lmt muster up sufficient energy to govern herself. She Is the most backward
country In Europe. Tbe people are
shamefully taxed; a peasant cannot
bring his load of faggots Into a town
without paying octroi toll. Tbe administrative departments are oriental iu
their sloth aud management. Freeh
butter Is obtained from France. The
postal service Is a disgrace. It is a
risky thing to post a letter, especially
If It seems to contain anything of value. To send a check by post Is regarded ae an extreme act of folly. The passing traveler on his way through Mud-
rid to France Is asked by his friends to
take letters and poet them In security
over the border. Yet no Spaniard seems
to care for any of these things, and Is
surprised If they are remarked ou."

One remedy for tbe dodging of taxes
on personal property suggested by General Harrison is entitled to something
more than casual consideration. It Is
that a meeting of the tax commissioners of a considerable number of States
be held, to consult as to some plan for
the taxation of personal property that
will secure a uniform system. Une of
the embarrassments at the present time
Is that when a State undertakes to
adopt a plan which will Increase tbe
taxation of certain classes of property,
It becomes a serious loser by tbe re
moval of those who are taxed under
sucb a system. New Jersey Is said to
be tbe paradise of New York tax dodgers. Ohio Is said to bave lost a number of wealthy citizens because the
State undertook to tax them. One was
so Incensed, not long ago, that he disposed of all bis property In Ohio and
left the State in something of a buff.
Tax commissioners, like Insurance and
labor eoinmlsslonprs, could meet, consider plans and Anally adopt some one
of them. This plan they could recommend to the Legislatures of the States
represented, and thereby a uniform system for more adequate taxation could
lie secured. Taxation Is not one of the
topics which the people generally discuss. They complain of local taxation,
but when the topic is discussed It Is
Federal taxation, usually the tnxatlon
of the poor to pay for bonds. This miiy
be Important, but, compared with local
tnxatlon, It Is Inconsequential. The
agitation of the topics which General
Harrison hns brought to the front In
neighborhoods, in village or township
meetings for the purpose would cab
public attention to the injustice In a
manner which could not fall to be generally beneficial.

Washington, April 11 .—President McKinley sent his Cuban message to congress today. After reviewing tlie history
of the war in Cuba the president says:
The war in Cuba Is ot such a nature,
that, short of subjugation or extermination, a final military victory for either
side seems Impracticable. The alternative lies In the physical exhaustion of one
or tho other party or perhaps both, a condition which, In effect, ended tbe 10 years'
way by the truce of Znn Jon. The prospect of such, a protraction and confusion
of the present strife Is a contingency
hardly to be contemplated with equanimity by the civilized world nnd least of nil
by the United States, nffected and Injured ns wo ore, deeply and Intimately, hy
Its very existence.
Asked for nn Armistice.
Realizing this. It appeared to be my
duty, In a spirit of true friendliness no
lens ui Spain thou to those Cubans who
hnve so much to lose by the prolonsu-
tlon of the struggle, to seek to bring
nbout an Immediate termination of the
war. To this end I submitted, on thc
27th ultimo, us a result of much representation and correspondence through the
United S<tates minister at Madrid, propositions to the Spanish government looking
to an armistice until October 1 for the
negotiation of peace with the good offices of the president.
In addition, I asked tho Immediate revocation of the order of reconccntratlon,
so as to permit the people to return to
their farms and the needy to be relieved
with provisions and supplies by the United States co-operating with the Spanish
authorities so as to afford full relief.
The reply of the Spanish cabinet wn-
recelved on the 31st ult. It offers as the
means to bring about peace in Cuba, to
confide the preparation thereof to the insular parliament, inasmuch as the concurrence of that body would be necessary
to establish a Him I result; it being, however, understood that the powers reserved
by the constitution to the central government are not lessened or diminished. As
the Cuban parliament does not meet until the fourth of May next the Spanish
government would not object for its purl
to accept at once a suspension of hostilities If asked for by the insurgents
from the general-ln-chlef, to whom It
would pertain tn such case to determine
the duration and condition of the armistice.
The function of the Cuban parliament
In the matter of "preparing" peace and
the manner of doing so are not expressed
In the Spanish memorandum, but from
General Woodford's explanatory reports
of prellmlnlary discussions preceding the
final conferences It Is understood that the
Spanish government stands ready to give
the insular congress full power to settle
tbe terms of peace with the insurgents,
whether by direct negotiations or Indirectly by means of legislation does not
appear.
The l'.nd of Ihe Rffort.
With this last overture in the direction
of immediate peace and its disappointing
reception by Spain, the executive was
brought to thc end of his effort.
In my annual massage of last December 1 said: "Of the untried measures
thero remain recognition of the Insurgents as belligerent*, recognition of Ihe
Independence of CUba and intervention to
end the war by lm|K>slng a rational compromise between the contestants and Intervention In fnv-or of one or the other
party. I speak not of forcible annexation for that cnn not be thought of. That
by our code of morality would lie criminal  aggression."
Thereupon, I reviewed these alternatives In the light of President (""rant's
message in the words uttered in 1S75,
when, after seven years of sanguinary,
destructive and cruel barbarities In Cuba,
he reached the conclusion that the recognition of the independence of Cuba waa
Impracticable and Indefensible and thnt
tho recognition of belligerence was not
warranted by the facts according to the
texts of public law.
I commented especially upon this phase
of the question, pointing out the Ineon-1
venlences and positive dangers of recognition of belligerence, which, while adding
to tho already onerous burdens of neutrality within our own Jurisdiction, could
not In any way extend our Influence or
effective office In the territory of hostilities.
Nothing hns since occurred  to change
my view  ill  this regard and  I  recognise
as  fmiv  now  ns  then that  the issuance
| of a proclamation of neutrality, by which
process the Bo-called recognition of belligerency Is published, could, of Itself and
I unattended   by  other  action,   accomplish
I nothing toward the end for which we la-
I bor, tlie Instant pacification of Cuba and
I tho cessation of  thc misery  that afflicts
' the island.
| AruIiihI   II.'.-.iuiiI/.Iiib   Independence.
Turning to Ihe question of recognizing
nt this time Ihe Independence of the present Insurgent movement In Cuba we find
safe precedents In our history from an
I early day. They are well summed up In
President Jackson's message to congress
I December 21, 1836, on the subject of the
recognition of the Independence of Texas, when he said:
"In all Che contests thnt hnve arisen out
of the revolutions of France, out of disputes relating to Portugal and Spain, out
of the separation of the American possessions of both from the Kuropean governments and out of the numerous and
constantly occurring struggles for dominion in Spanish-American states, so wisely
consistent with our Just principles has
been the action of our government that
we have, under the most critical circumstances, avoided alt censure and encountered no other evil than that produced by
a transient re-estrangement of good will
In those against whom we have lieen,
by force of evidence, compelled to decide.
"It hns thus been mnde known to the
world that the uniform policy and practice
of the United Stntes Is to avoid all interference In disputes which merely relate
to tho internal government of other nations and eventually to recognize the authority of the prevailing pnrty without
reference to our particular interests and
views or to the merits of Ihe original controversy.
"Hut in this, as In every other occasion, safety Is to lie found in a rigid adherence to principles. In the contest between Spain and the revolting colonies we
stood aloof and waited not only until the
ability of the new stmtea to protect themselves was fully established, but until
danger of their being ngaln subjugated
had entirely passed away. Then and not
until  then,  were  they  recognized.
"Such was our course In regard to Mexico herself. It Is true that with regard
to Texas, the civil authorities of Mexico
had been expelled, Its invading army defeated, the chief of tho republic himself
captured and all present power to control
thc newly organized government of Tex-
ob annihilated within Us confinement. But,
I
on the other hand, there la, In appearance
nt least, nn Immense disparity of physical |
force on the side of Texas. The Mexican
republic under an ally Is garhcrlnjr its
forces under n new leader and menacing
a fresh invasion to recover Its lost domain.
"Upon the Issue of this Ihreatencd Invasion tho Independence of Texas may bo
considered us suspended und were there
nothing peculiar in the situation of the
United States and Texas our acknowledgement of Its Independence at audi a crisis
could scarcely be regarded as consistent
with that prudent reserve with which we
hiuo hitherto held ourselves bound to
treat   all   similar  questions."
Thereupon Andrew Jackson proceeded
to consider tho risk that there might be
Imputed to the United States motives of
selfish Interests in view of the former
claim on our part to the territory of Tex.
ns and of the avowed purpose of the
Texans In seeking recognition of Independence ns nn Incident to the incorporation of Texas In thc Union, concluding
thus:
President Jackson's Conclusions.
"Prudence, therefore, seems to dJctate
that we ahould stand aloof and maintain
our present attitude, if not until Mexico
Itself or one of Ihe great powers shall
recognize the Independence of the new
government, at least until the lapse of
time or the course of events shall havo
pi nved, beyond cavil or dispute, the ability of that country to maintain separut.*
sovereignty and to uphold the government constituted by them. Neither of tha
eontending parties can Justly complain
n.' this course. By pursuing ll wo are
but currying out the long established policy of our government, a policy whlcn
hns secured to us respect and Influence
abroad and Inspired confidence af home."
These are the words of Andrew Jackson. They are evidence thut tho United
States, In addition to the test Imposed by
public law as the condition of the recognition of Independence by a neutral state,
to-wlt: That the revolted state shall
"constitute In fact a body politic, having
a government In substance as well as in
name, possessed of the elements of stability," and forming de facto, "If left to
Itself, a state among the nations, reasonably capable of discharging the duties of
B state," nan Imposed for Its own governance In dealing with cases like these, the
further condition that recognition of independent statehood is not due to a revolted dependency until the danger of its
being again subjugated by Its parent
state hns entirely passed  away."
This extreme test was In fact applied
in the case of Texas. The congress to
whom President Jackson referred the
question as "one probably leading to war,"
and therefore H proper subject for a previous understanding with that body, by
whom war can alone be declared and by
whom all the provisions for sustaining
Its perils must be furnished, left the matter of recognition of Texas to the discretion of the executive, providing merely for the sending of a diplomatic ageni
when the president should be satisfied
that the republic of Texas hnd become
"an Independent  state."
Inn    llnri-n's    Position.
It was so recognized by President Van
Ruren, who commissioned a charge d'affaires, March 7. 1837, after Mexico had
abandoned an attempt to conquer the
Texas territory and when there was at
Ihe time no bona fide contest going on
between the Insurgent province and 1 tn
former  sovereign.
I said in my message nf December last:
"It is to be seriously considered whether
the Cuban Insurrection possesses beyond
dispute the uttrlbutes of statehood which
alone can demand the recognition of bel
llgerency in its favor."
The same requirement must be no less
seriously considered when the graver Issue of recognizing Independence Is in
question, for no less positive test can be
applied to the greater act than to the
lesser, while on the other hand the influence and consequences of the struggle
upon the International policy of the recognizing states, which form important
factors when the recognition of belligerency is concerned, are secondary If not
rightly ellminable factors when ihe community claiming recognition Is not Independent beyond peradventure.
Nor from the standpoint of expedience
do I think It would be wise or prudent
for this government to recognize, ut the
present time, the Independence of the so-
called Cuban republic. Such recognition
Is not necessary In order to enable the
United States to intervene and pacify the
Island. To commit this country now to
the recognition of any particular government In Cuba might subject us to embarrassing, conditions of International obligation toward the organization so recognized. In case of intervention our conduct will be subject to the approval or
disapproval of such government. We
would be required to submit to Its direction and to assume to il the more relation
of a friendly ally.
When it shall appear thereafter that
there is within the Island a government
capable of performing the duties and discharging the functions of a nation und
having as a matter of fact the proper
forms and attributes of nationality such
government cnn be promptly and readily
recognized and the relations and Interests of thc United States with bucIi nation adjusted.
The Alternative Forms.
There remain the alternative forms of
Intervention to end thc war, either as an
Impartial neutrality by Imposing a rational compromise between the contestants, or as the active ally of the one
party or the other. As to the first, It Is
not to be forgotten that during the last
few months Ine relation of the fnit-l
States has virtually been one of friendly
Intervention In many ways, each not of
Itself conclusive, but all tending to the
exci utlon of n potential Influence toward
an ultimate pacific result, just and honorable to all Interests concerned.
The spirit of nil of your acts hitherto
has been nn earnest, unselfish desire for
peace and prosperity In Cuba, untarnished
by differences between the United Stntes
and Spain and unstained by the blood of
American citizens. The forcible Intervention of the United States as a neutral
to stop the war, according to the large
dlotutes of humanity, and following
historical precedents where other states
have interfered to check the hopeless sacrifice of life by internecine conflicts beyond their borders, Is Justifiable on national grounds. It Involves, however,
hostile constraint upon both the parties
lo the contest, as well to enforce a truce
as to guide the eventual settlement. The
grounds for such Intervention may be
briefly summarized us follows:
<;>■..,,,,.In   for Intervention.
First, in the cnuse of humanity nnd to
put nn end to the barbarities, bloodshed,
starvation and horrible miseries now existing there nnd which the parties to the
conflict are either unable or unwilling to
stop or mitigate. It Is no answer to say
tins is in a country belonging to another
nation and Is therefore none of our business. It Is especially our duty, for it Is
right at our door.
Second, we owe to our citizens In Cuba
to afford them that protection and Indemnity for life and property which no
government there can or will nfford, and
to that end terminate the conditions thut
deprive mem of legal protection,
Third, the right to Intervene may be
Justified by the very serious Injury to the
commerce, trade and business of our people nnd by the wanton destruction of
property and devastation of the. Island.
Fourth, and which Is of the utmost
Importance, the present condition of uffuirs In Cuba Is a constant menace to our
pence and entails upon this government
enormous expenses. With such conflict
waged for years In nn Island so near to us
and with which our people have such

The Tr*CSd- Ol the Maine.
The elements of danger and disorder already  pointed  out  havo  been  strikingly
Illustrated by  a  tragic event  which  has
deeply and Justly moved  the   American
'"i have already transmitted to congress
the report of the naval court of Inquiry
on the destruction of the battleship
Mallie In the harbor of Havana during t"°
night of the lBth of February. The destruction of thut noble vessel hns tilled
the national heurt with Inexpllciible horror; 258 brave sailors and murines, two
officers of our navy, reposing In the funded security of a friendly harbor, hiive
lieen hurled to dentil, grief and waul
brought to their homes and sorrow to the
nation.
The naval court of Inquiry which, It is
needless to say, commands tho unqualified confidence of the government, was
unanimous In Its conclusion that the destruction of the Maine was caused by un
exterior explosion; thut of a submnrliie
mine. It did not assume lo place the responsibility.   That remains to be fixed.
In any event tho destruction of the
Maine, by whatever cause, Is a patent
and Impressive proof of a state of things
in Cuba that Is Intolerable. That condition Is thus shown to be such that the
Spanish government cnn not assure safety
and security to u vessel of the American
navy In Ihe harbor of Havana on u mission of peace and rightfully there.
Spain  \\ mils Arhllrntlon.
Further referring. In this connection, to
recent diplomatic correspondence, a dispatch from our minister to Spain of the
2tiih ult. contained the statement that tha
Spanish minister for foreign affairs assured him positively Spain will do all thut
the highest honor and Justice requires In
the matter of the Muine. The reply above
relerred to of the 31st ult. also contained
an expression of the readiness of Spain
to submit to arbitration all the differences which can urlse In this mailer,
which Is subsequently explained by the
note of the Spunlsh minister at Washington of the Kith Insl as follows:
"As to the question of fact which
springs from the diversified views between the report of the Americun and the
Spi.nish bourds, Spnin proposes thut the
fuct be ascertained by un iuipaiii.il !n-
viitlgiitlon by experts which decision
Spain acepts in advance."
To this 1  have mnde no reply.
President (.runt Quoted.
President Grant In 1875. In discussing
the purposes of the contest as it appeared
then and Its hopeless and Indefinite prolongation, said:
"In such event I am of the opinion that
other nations will lie compelled lo assume (he responsibility which devolves
upon them und to seriously consider Ihe
only remaining measures possible, mediation and Intervention. Owing perhaps to
the large expanse of water separating the
Island from the peninsula, the contending
parties appear to have within themselves
no depository of common confidence t..
suggest wisdom, when passion and excitement have their sway, and thus as*
sume ihe part of peacemaker."
In ibis view, in the earlier days of thc
contest, the good offices of the Unlt.d
Slates as mediator were tendered In good
faith, without anysielflsh purposes, In thr
Interest of humanity and sincere friendship for Iwlh parties, but were ut the
lime declined by Spain with the declaration, nevertheless, that at a future time
they would be indispensable.
No Intimation haa been received that in
the opinion of Spain that time has been
reached; yet the strife continues wlln
ull of Its dread horrors and its injuries lo
the I'nited Btates and other nations. Bach
party seems quite callable of working
great Injury and damage to the other .is
well us to ull the relations and interests
dependent on the existence of peace In
the Island, but they seem incapable of
reaching any adjustment, and both have
thus far failed of achieving any success
whereby one party shall possess nnd control the island to the exclusion of the
other.
Whnt Cleveland Snid.
Under the circumstances the agency i t
others, either by mediation or by Intervention, seems to be the only alternative
which must sooner or later be invoked
for the termination of the strife. In the
last annual message of my immediate predecessor, during thc pending struggle, it
was said:
"When the inability of Spain to deal
successfully wlrh the Insurrection has become manifest, and it Is demonatrated
that her sovereignty Is extinct in Cuba,
for all purposes of Its rightful exlB'cnce,
and when a hopeless struggle for Its re-
establishment has degenerated Into the
strife which means nothing more than
the useless sacrifice of human life and
the utler destruction of thc very subject
matter of the conflict, a situation will
be presented In which our obligations to
the sovereignty of Spain will be superceded by higher obligations which we can
hardly hesitate to recognize and dls-
ehurge."
From   Ihe   Previous   Message.
In my nnnunl message to congress December last, speaking to this question, I
said:
"The near future will demonstrate
whether the Indispensable condition of a
righteous peace Just alike to the Cubans
nnd Spain as well as equitable to all our
Interests so intimately convolved in the
welfare of Cuba, Is likely to be attained.
if not further and other action by the
I'nit..I States will remain to be taken.
When that time comes action will lie determined in the line ot Indisputable right
and duty; it will be faced without misgiving or hesitancy In thc light of the obligation this government owes to itself,
to the people who confided to It the protection of their Interests und honor, nnd
to immunity; sure of the right, keeping
free from all offense ourselves, actuated
hy upright and patriotic considerations,
moved neither by passion nor selfishness,
the government will continue Its watchful care over the rights and property of
American citizens and will abate none ot
its efforts to bring about, by peaceful
agencies, a peace which shall be honorable and enduring. If it shall hereafter
appear to be a duty imposed by our obligations to ourselves, to civilization and
to humanity, to interveno with force It
shall be without fault on our part nnd
only because the necessity for such nc-
llnn will be so clear as to command the
r.upport and approval of the civilized
world."
The Wnr Mnst Stop,
The long trial hns proved thnt the object for which Spain has waged war can
not he uttalned. The fire of Insurrection
may flame or may smoulder with varying
seasons, but It has not been and 11 Is
plain that It cun not bo extinguished by
present methods. The only hope of relief and repose from a condition which
can not longer be endured is the enforced
pacification of Cuba.
In the name of humanity, In the name
of civilization, In the behalf of endangered American Interests, which give us
Ihe right and the duty to speak and to
act, the war In Cuba must stop,
In view of these facta and these considerations, I nsk congress to authorize and
empower the president to take measures
to secure a full termination of hostilities
between the government of Spain and the
people of Cuba and  lo secure in   Ihe  Isl-
inay lie neeeasury
for these purposes.
And In the Interest of hiuuunlty and to
aid In preserving tho lives of the starv-
Ing people of the Island, I recommend
thnt the distribution of food and su|ipll,.a
be continued and thnt an appropriation
be mnde out of the public treasury to
supplement the charity of our cltlsens.
The issue Is now with congress; It Is
a solemn responsibility. I have exhausted every effort to relieve the Intolerable,
condition of affairs which is at our doors;
prepared to execute every obligation Imposed upon me 'by the constitution and
iuw, I await your action.
Veslerday and since the preparation of
the forgoing message official information
was received by me that the latest decree of (he queen regent of Spain dlrcc.s
General Blanco, In order to prepare and
facilitate peace, to proclaim a suspension
of hostilities, Ihe duration and details ot
which have not yet lieen communicated
to me. This fact with every other pertinent consideration will, I am sure, huve
your careful and Just consideration In
Ihe solemn deliberations upon which you
are about to enter. If this measure nt-
iniii . u successful result then our usplra-
tlons as a Christian, peace-loving people
will be realised! ir li fails, it will be only
another Justification for our contemplated
action. Wll.I.lAM    M'KINI.KV.

his fortifications, without check. The attack was entirely successful, as the Dervishes lost heavily.
The Sirdar's force numbered 12,000 men
with 24 guns, under Colonel Long, and 12
Maxims. Tho enemy left Shendy with
111,000 men. The enemy was at llrst practically concealed under ground in a strong

| enemy. The znriiba was torn away, but
the enemy obstinately clung to the
trenches und were bayoneted In them.
During the whole admirable bombardment
by Colonel Long not a single Dervish was
visible. Mahmoud was captured by the
Tenth Soudanese battalion. He was underground thc whole time his men were

Spring Humors
Skaguay, Alaska, April 8 (via Seattle,
April 0).—At about noon today on the
Chilkool, trail between The Scales and
Stone House at least UK) men met death,
and a large number of others were injured more or less seriously, in a snow-
slide. The dead were crushed under an
avalanche if snow and ice, which came
down from the mountain side upon the
left-hand side of the trail about midway
between The Scales and Stone House
Kixty-liine dead liodiea have been thus
far recovered, and the names of ISO missing oned have been reported as unuceount-
ed for. It is barely possible that some of
these had succeeded in crossing the. pass
before the avalanche occurred. A conservative estimate is that between
7.i und 100 persona were killed. The
point, at which tlio accident occurred
is some five miles above. Sheep Camp. The
nearest telephone station is four miles dis-!
tant. The Scales is some five miles above
Sheep Camp. The telephone wires at this
point were carried away by the slide. This
fact makes it difficult to obtain further
particulars at this time. A blinding snowstorm was raging all day upon thc summit, and ns a consequence many of those
iu the vicinity were making no attempt
to travel. Zelmith. Sprague and Stevenson of Seattle were traveling together as
partners and were found side bv side in
bed.
Thousands of people were encamped in
the vicinity of the accident at the time
and were soon upmi the scene rendering
such assistance as was possible. Upon receipt of the news, points below Dyea telephoned up to know if assistance was required and received answer to the effect
that 5000 people were al work upon the
debris and were only in each other's way.
All day Saturday and Sunday a southerly storm with chinook wind, rain and
snow prevailed in the vicinity, and it is
believed the softening of thc snow on thc
mountain side by those agencies was the
cause of the avalanche. The quantity of
snow and ice that came down in the slide
is estimated at thousands of tons. It
swept directly across the trail, which, notwithstanding the fact lliat thc weather
was unsuitable for travel, was thronged
with wayfarers. The last vestige of (lie
trail in thc vicinity was wiped out of existence, and where it leads is now a mountain of snow and ice, under which are
many dead bodies that can not be recovered for days to come.
Two or three thousand men ore working in relays of as many as can stand side
by side, shoveling away tbe debris in
search of the dead and dying. Twenty-
two dead bodies hnve been recovered and
identified and '25 have been taken out
alive.
That pimple on your arm, those eruptions, itching and burning hives, just as
surely indicate impurities in the blood,
wheh should have prompt aud careful attention, as do boils, carbuncles, ulcers,
salt rheum and the severest forms of
scrofula. Hood's Sarsapnrilhi cures all humors of the blood of every form and
degree.
That Tired Keellna;.
So common in the spring, is also due to
the weak, thin, depleted condition of thc
blood. Make your blood pure by taking
Hood's Sarsnparilla, and you will be strong
and ready for work, will have a good appetite and good health. Try Hood's Sarsnparilla this spring.
"My daughter waa afflicted with liver
trouble and hnd a sallow complexion. She
has taken Hood's Sarsnparilla and her
complexion is clear. Another daughter
had eruptions on her hands, but after tnk-
ink Hood's Sarsaparillu the eruptions are
all gone." MILS. M. K. HILL,

i "'To express my thanks for the great good
I have derived from thc use of Hood's
Sarsaparilla. About a year ago 1 became

And had sick and dizzy headaches. I was
almost tired of life and did not care for
anything. I went on this way for a year
or inure when one day a friend advised mc
to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. I procured u
bottle of this medicine and lwgan taking
it. Finding tlie first bottle helped nie I
got the second, and kept on until I had
taken four bottles, when I was completely
cured." SAMUEL WHITE,
Bitreh Hay, Wash.
The Knmlly   Depend   I |ioi,   II.
"Four years ago I began using Hood's
Sarsaparilla in my family and the results
were so satisfactory Hint we hnve since
depended upon it as our family medicine,
it has kept us in good health most of the
lime, and we have had little need of any
oilier medicine. We believe that for diseases of the blood, Hood's Sarsapiirilla
has no equal." (il'.O. HARVEY,

N. B.—If you decide to take Hood's
Sarsaparilla, do not be induced to buy any
substitute,   lie sure to get only Hood's.

New York, April 10.—Rev. George C.
Carter, of the Protestant ICpiscopnl Church
of the Redeemer in Brooklyn, will use for
the first time today a golden chalice and a
communion service of solid silver. The
gold and silver have been furnished by the
members of his congregation. Some time
agd thc rector suggested that a communion service could be obtained if tlie members of the church contributed small
pieces of jewelry. The suggestion was immediately acted upon, nnd from the gold
en rings, bangles and eardrops, silver trinkets and other articles of jewelry a magnificent chalice and communion service
were made.

It seems probable that tho difficulty of treating* refectory silver-lead ore,
containing much zinc, may be solved
by a rew process. A very strong company styled the Smelting Corporation
Limited, has at last been formcil in
England for this purpose, with a caput of £600,000. Am ong its directors
are fonnd a millionaire capatalist, an
eminent scientist and well known business men, Thn company has strong
financial backing. It takes over a
business already established at Swansea
South Wales, by H. R. Fry and others
where refractory silver-lead ores containing zinc are stated to have bean
successfully treated for some time by
a patent which involves the use of
fluxes composed of sulphate of soda
and oxide of iron. It is claimed that
by this process 90 per cent, of thc
silver in refractoy ore can be
profitably recovered, 87 per cent of the
lead, ond 70 per cent, of thc zinc,
use for a largo part of which can be
had in the form of oxide of zinc If
this process proves all that is claimed
it mean-, much for undertaking, like
the Galena Mine**, where the silver-
lead ore is refractory and contains a
large percentage of zinc. And as there
are many other instances of refractory
rinc-impregnated silver-lead ores in
the province, the process of the Smelting Corporation, Limited, may have
very important effeots indeed, j in furthering British silver mining by r;nd -

In the Tuesday edition of tho
Spokesman-Review we notice the following:—
"Tho working force on the Comstock
on Four Mile, in the Slocan, has been increased to 25."
Wo do not know who the Slocan
correspondent of tho Spokosman-Re-
view may be, but it would be a good
thing if ho could report the truth in
his articles. The foroo at Ihe Corn-
stock has boon decroased to 25, and
has never had less than that number
at work all winter. If some of tho
reporters who undortake to supply
mining nows to newspapers would
throw out thoir feet, and learn to distinguish between a tunnel and a location post, it would better satisfy
their readers. And those papers
which satirically style themselves
mining papers, with their mining news
clipped outright, without credit, from
the Spokesman-Review, would do
well to gi\e their subscribers something else to read besides these clippings, and jokes—also clipped.

SEASONABLE TALK.
The Spring is now with ns and
everyone from the humblest prospector
to the biggest mine owner are doing
their figuring and making calculations
on this si'innier's work. It is of most
vital importance to the business men
of Silverton and all other Slocan Lake
towns that tbe waggon roads running
to the different mines be put into good
shape in order not to interfere more
than can possibly be helped with tho
continuous running of the different
properties at full blast The season of
snowslides will soon be over, and it
stands the citizens of the lake towns
in hand to clear out the roads where
snowslides may have swept across
and tilled or otherwise damaged them
Also to cut jams or other obstructions
out of the creek beds before high water,
to keep the creeks from becoming
darned up and overflowing the roads,
washing it out, and doing more damage iu an hour than can be replaced iu
a week. By talking this thing over
and coming to some understanding
with the various mine superintendents
before the slides are all down, when
the proper inomeut arri.es everything
will be arranged and no time will be
lost, ai what needs to be done must be
done promptly. Tbe time will be
short, A washed out road will do us
as much harm as the shutting down of
half the mines. In fact, at the present time, and until the roads again
become passable, the mines will work
but a very small force of men and no
new mine can bo started up. Tbe
bringing in of supplies, machinery, or
starting the erection of concentrators
must necessarily be at a standstill. We
are wholly and solely a mining community and therefore tho prosperity of
the mines means the prosperity of the
towns, and the keeping of these running is of vital importance. Of the
importance of tho road question, for
example, take the Enterprise that
works ordinarily from 30 to 40 men,
but ia now getting along with eight,
aod the Comstock that can give etn-
"Early to bod, early to rise, dont
get tight, and advertise," was thp motto prescribed for business by Robert
.0. Ogdon of tho John Wanamsker
firm when addressing tho Merchants'
Association in New York, lie further
said: "A great dual of advertising fails
because the advertiser gets discouraged. Advertising to be successful
should be continuous. The advertiser
to be successful must have courage.
Most men are afraid to go beyond a
certain point Having placed $20,000
they should not fail to put ou the
extra $5.00; or they may lose the benefit of the $20,000. If a inon has
not tho money to advertise he might
as well go out of business."
TheC. P. R. defeated iu the Commons in Ihe great struggle against the
Corbin Railway 15:11, h»ve now turned
their attention to tbe Senate snd will
endeavor to secure their eni—tlie
monopoly of the Boundary Creek
trade—through that body. Bat the
Senate, it is hoped, will show the sain-
discretion in approving of the House
of Commons vote as they did when tbe
Yukon Railway Bill was buried beyond the sound of Gabriel's trump.
The Eastern government organs
have been raising u great howl ugaius
tho Senate's action regarding the Yukon Railway Bill. They unuounce
that the Senate has cut its own throat,
signed its own death warrant and so
on. If the Senate has doue nothing
else, it has warranted its continuance
by thc nn ritous action it look when
Manu-Mackonzio were turned  down
Those newspapers who are actively
cpgaged in vilifying and bespattering
the Ministers with mud which will
not stick, aro in the predicament of
wanting something to kick about and
cannot fiud it. Wh_t scathing articles
these opposition editors would write
if they really had a kick coming.
It is reported that Dave King, editor of the Kootcnaian, will be a candidate for the Provincial Legislature
at the coming elections. Poor Dave,
he always had his littlo faults, but we
never thought he would come to this.
