Warshlpa Taken Vnavrarea and
Mrrcllciualy Riddled—The Spanish
Ships at the Bottom of the Sen—
Stara and Strlpea to Be Raised
Over  the  Philippines.
Washington, May 7.—Dewey's advices
in brief are: "The entire Spanish fleet has
been destroyed, tlie batteries silenced, Cavite and the arsenal has been seized and
Manila can be taken at any hour. Not
one American killed, not one warship
badly damaged."
The Order of Battle.
* Hong Kong, May 7.—Tlie order of battle assumed by the Spanish was with all
the small craft inside of Cavite harbor,
behind the timber breakwater, and the
larger ships cruising off Cavite and Manila. No patrol was established nor was
any searchlight placed at the entrance
to the bay.
On Saturday night the American ships
crept inside tho bay without being seen
until the McCulloch's funnel emitted a
spark. Then a few shots were exchanged
with Corregidor island, but the fleet never stopped nor slowed down opposite the
city until dawn. The Spanish ships then
opened fire, supported by the Cavite forts.
The McCulloch remained at some distance
and the enemy's shells passed, but did
not touch her.
The cruiser Baltimore suffered the most
of any of the American ships. Five or 10
shots took effect in her, but none of her
officers or crew wero seriously hurt. Only
a few slight injuries were suffered by the
American fleet, the worst of which resulted from an explosion of ammunition
on the deck of the Baltimore. The other
ships of the fleet were practically unhurt.
One hundred and fifty Spaniards were
killed and many were wounded. The
cruiser Reina Christina waa the worst
damaged of the Spanish ships and it is
believed that she was sunk. The other
ships of the Spaniards were quickly riddled by the American fire. The torpedo
boats of the Cavite forts were quickly
forced to return to that place for shelter.
Tlie Cavite arsenal exploded and 40 Spaniards were killed. The forts made a
nominal resistance. Tlie city batttery has
never capitulated and the Spaniards
ashore  are  defiant.   .
The Olyinpla I.e.l the Squadron.
The Olympia led the squadron into the
bay through the channel and the fleet
had passed Corregidor island before the
Spni-.li perceived them. A r-shot was fired from the battery, to which the Raleigh, the Iloston and the Concord speedily retorted, and Uie battery was almost
immediately reduced to silence.
The squadron then slowly proceeded up
the harbor and when daylight, came tlie
town of Manila was seen about five miles
distant. The American ships steamed
deliberately along in front of Manila, but
without opening fire until tlie Spanish
cannon from the batteries around the
town began firing, and shots began to
strike the water around the squadron.
Thc Concord fired a few shots more or
less as she passed, but the other ships
proceeded silently towards Cavite. When
nearing Baker bay a sudden upheaval
of tho waters occurred a little distance
in front of the leading ship, and quickly
following this a second waterspout showed that tlie Spaniards had tired a couple
of torpedoes, hut their efforts to blow up
the ships were absolutely unsuccessful.
Almost immediately the guns in the Cavite battery burst into a heavy cannonading. The shells fell in the neighborhood
of the Olympia, but the majority of them
fell short and were badly aimed. The
squadron then drew nearer in toward the
Spanish fleet and the battle began in
real earnest.
Dewey Risked the Mines.
Tho American Bhips entered by the
southern channel by Faballo and Frisle
islets, which were fortified. Commodore
Dewey resolved to risk the mines whieh
wero supposed to block the channel. The
islnnd forts fired, but not together. Replying with a few shells, the squadron
proceeded without stopping or changing
its course. The order of tho vessels was
as follows: Olympia, Ilaltimore, Raleigh,
Concord, Boston, Petrel, McCulloch, Nnn-
shan and Zcalim, and thus they steamed
to the center of the hay.
Sought the Spanish Squadron.
They passed before the city, seeking
the Spanish squadron, and found them
near the entrance of Baker bay, backed
and flanked by the Cavite fortifications,
with the two torpedo boats and four gunboats inside the mole, which served as
protection, while the Reina Christina,
Castilla, Isla de Cuba, Don Antonio de
Ulloa, Isla de Luzon and the mail boat
Mindanao were drawn up outside. The
Spaniards fired the first shot, at 6000
yards, but it was ineffective. The American ship* formed in column line and
steamed nearer, reserving their fire until
within 4000 yards. They then passed
backwards and forwards six limes across
the Spaniards' front, pouring in a perfect
hail of shot and shell. Kvery shot seemed to tell. Then the Americans retired
fast and a council of war took place.
Spanish In Desperate Stralta.
Tlie Spanish ships were in a desperate
condition. Tlie Reina Christina waa riddled and one of her steam pipes had
burst. The Castilla was also on fire and
both were burned to the water's edge.
Tho Don Antonio de Ulloa made a magnificent show of desperate bravery. With
the colors nailed to her mast she sank
with all hands.
Her hull was riddled but the guns
were still fired defiantly as the vessel
sank beneath the water. A torpedo boat
tried to creep along the shore around the
offing and attack the Zcalim, Nanshan
and McCulloch, all non-combatants, but
was driven ashore and shot into bits. The
Mindano was run onto the beach and the
other small craft retired behind thc mole.
Finishing Tonehea.
The fight started at 6:30, was adjourned at 8:30 and resumed about noon.   The
finishing touches were given Cavite by
the Vitrei and Concord. The Raleigh
grounded twice in shallow water during
the engagement.
Cavite In Utter Rnlns.
Cavite is in utter ruins and also the
surroundings. Tlie gunboats liave been
scuttled and the arsenal was on fire and
exploded, causing great mortality. The
commodore of the fleet on board the Reina Christina waa wounded and her captain, lieutenant, chaplain and tho midshipmen were killed by a shell striking
the bridge,
F.ighty of her crew were killed and 60
On the Castilla 100 were killed and 60
Spanish Losses Over lOOO.
The Spanish losses aggregate more than
a thousand. There were no casualties
among the Americans except tliat six of
the Baltimore's crew were slightly wounded by one of the enemy's shells striking
a shell on the deck and exploding it.
There were three shot holes in her upper
works, five in the upper works of tlie
Olympia and a whaleboat smashed on the
Raleigh. No other damage wos done anywhere.
The disparity between the injury inflicted on the Spanish fleet and that sustained by the Americans is due to tlie
superior guns of the later and the superior marksmanship at long range.
The Manila   Esplanade  Krupp 10-inch
guns were   fired continuously,   but   the
Americans avoided replying and the battery showed a white flag afterwards.
Capitulation  Still  Unsettled.
The terms of capitulation are still unsettled. Commodore Dewey fears rioting
hy the rebels if he attempts a bombardment.
The forts at tlie entrance to the bar
capitulated and were dismantled on Wednesday. The Americans cut the cable,
but the Spaniards refused to permit them
to use it pending the surrender of the
city, and it is therefore not known what
is transpiring on shore,

Key West, May 7.—The torpedo boat
Dupont came in tonight and reported a
sharp engagement off Matanzas last night
and this morning. The Dupont and auxiliary cruiser Hornet were cruising near
the shore last night and when about 600
yards from land, were fired upon by a
body of cavalry about 200 strong which
was spread along the shore on the lookout for filibustercrs. According to the
Dupont's story both vessels returned the
fire, scattering the Spanish troops and
then bombarded the Matanzas fortifications. There were in the nature of sand
blockhouses, nine in number. The bombardment lasted from 4 o'clock to 5:30

it until 8:30 o'clock. Tlie Dupont men

Key West, Fla., May 8.—Only poor
marksmanship on the part of Uie Spaniards saved the Vicksburg and the cutter Morrill from destruction in Havana
harbor yesterday morning. For over
half an hour Uicy were under the Are of
thc guns of the Santa Clara water batteries but both escaped wiUiout material injury, although shrapnel from
eight-inch guns exploded all about them
and both now show the scars of Uie
Spanish bullets. Tho wily Spaniards
had arranged a trap to send a couple of
our ships to tho bottom. They baited
it as a man would bait a trap.
A small schooner was sent out from
Havana harbor shortly before daylight
yesterday morning to draw some of Uie
Americans into the ambuscade. The ruse
woiked like a charm. The Vicksburg
and the Morrill, in the heat of the chum-
and in their contempt for Spanish gunnery, walked straight into the trap that
had been set for them. Had the Spaniards possessed their souls in patience
but five minutes longer not even the bad
gun practice would have saved our ships
and this morning two moro of our vessels
would lie at tho bottom within two
lengths of the Maine.
I.ured the Warships In.
Friday evening the Vicksburg and
Morrill, cruising to the west of Morro
castle, were tired upon by the big guns
of the Cojiniar batteries. Two shots
were tired at the Vicksburg and one at
the Morrill. Roth vessels, without returning the flic, steamed out of range.
Hut yesterday morning the Spaniards
had better luck. Tlie schooner they had
sent out before daylight ran off to the
eastward, hugging the shore and with
the wind on her starboard quarter. About
three miles east of the entrance of thc
liarUir she came over on the port tack.
A base fringed the horizon and she was
not discovered until three miles off
shore, when the Mayflower made her out
and signalled the Morrill and Vicksburg.
Captain Smith of the Morrill and Commander Tilly of the Vicksburg immediately slapped on all steam and started in
pursuit. The schooner instantly put
ahout and ran for Morro castle before
thp wind. In doing so she would, according to the well-conceived Spanish
plot, lead the two American warships directly under the guns of the Santa Cla-
ra battery. These works arc a short
mile west of Morro and are a part of
the harbor defenses. There are two bat-
tciies, one at the shore, which has been
recently thrown up, of sand and mortar,
with wido embrasures for eight-inch
guns: the other is on a rocky eminence
which juts out into tlio gulf at Uiis
point. Thc upper battery mounts mod
em 10 inch and 12 inch Krupp guns lie
hind a six-foot stone parapet, in front
of which nre 20 feet of earthworks and a
belting of railroad iron. This battery
is considered the most formidable of Havana's defenses except Morro castle. It
is masked and has not been absolutely located by the American warships. It is
probably due to the fact tliat Uie Spaniards did not desire to expose its position that the Vicksburg and Morrill arc
now afloat.
Into  the  Harbor  After  Her.
The Morrill nnd Vicksburg were about
six miles from the schooner when Uie
chase began. They steamed after her
at full speed, thc Morrill leading until
wiUiin a mile and a half of the Santa
Clara batteries. Commander Smith of
tho Vicksburg was the first to realize
the danger into which the reckless pursuit had led them. He concluded it was
time lo halt and sent a shot across the
bow of the Bchoonor. The Spaniard instantly brought his vessel about, but
while she was still rolling in thc trough
of the sea with her sails flapping, an
eight-inch shrapnel shell camo hurling
through the air from thc water battery,
a mile and a half away.
lt passed over the Morrill liotweon Ihe
pilot house and smokestack and exploded
less than 60 feet on the port quarter.
The small shot milled against her side.
It was a close call. Two more shots
followed in quick MSeSSSion, both
shrapnel. One hurst cloao under the
starboard quarter, filling the engine
room with the smoke of the explosion of
the shell nnd tho other, like the first,
pasaod over and exploded just beyond.
Spaniards   Had   the   Range.
Hie Spnnish gunners had the range
and their time fuses were accurately sot.
Tlie crews of both ships were nt Uieir
guns. Lieutenant Craig, who wns in
charge of the bow four-inch rapid firo
gun of tho Morrill, nsked for nnd obtained permission to return the fire. At the
first shot Uie Vicksburg, which wns in
the wake of thc Morrill, slightly in shore,
sheered off and passed to windward under the Morrill's stern. In the meantime Captain Smith also put his helm to
port and was nono too mum, for as the
Morrill stood off a solid eight-inrh shot
grazed her starbard quarter end kicked
up tons of water as it struck n wave 100
yard- beyond. Captain Smith mid afterwards that this wns undoubtedly an
ught-lnch armor-piercing projectile, and
that it would have passed through the
Morrill's boilers had she not changed
her course.
All thc guns of the water battery were
now at work. One of them cut Uie Jacob ladder of the Vicksburg adrift and
another carried away a portion of thc
I'lrr Was Returned.
As the Morrill nnd the Vicksburg
steamed away their nft guns wore used,
but only a few shots were fired. The
Morrill's six-inch gun waa elevated for
4000 yards and struck  the earthworks

Result of De-rej-'a Victory.
Chicago, May 9.—A special to the
Times-Herald  from  Washington says:
The representatives of the foreign governments are taking an intense interest
in tho conflict between the United States
and Spain. They are specially concerned
at present over the fate of the Philippines and discussing the possibility of
Intervention by the powers.
The concensus of opinion seems to l>e
'liiit if the United States should conclude
tx. -retain possession of the conquered
islands it, the Pacific the European powers will have no cause to interfere. Atten-
Mon is also called to the fact that with
•be capture of the Philippines the United
States can also claim the Marianne, Palawan and Caroline islands.
A foreign diplomat, whose opinion is
entitled to consideration, in discussing
the situaton, says:
"European statesmen are much gratified to note that the United States appears determined to handle the Philippine question ably and strongly. When
the newspapers first asserted that only
10.0(10 soldiers were to be sent to reinforce Admiral Dewey and make permanent the fruits of his victory, considerable uneasiness was felt.
"It would be a physical impossibility
to police the 8,000,(K*o"or 9,000,000 inhabitants of S*ttin's Oceanic colonies with
that number of men. Under a good military government it would require ln.ooo
for administrative purposes alone. Thc
proposition to transport 30,000 soldiers to
this conquest is more like a business
"It may surprise some Americans to
know that Dewey's victory carries with
it spoils of war probably larger than was
ever decided by the issue of one battle.
The future value and influence of this
conquest is almost incalculable. Studying the situation as it exists we must
assume that with the fall of the Phillip-
[lines the United States will claim as
their due all the natural results of such
a capture. By this one victory the I'nited states acquired at least the right of
disposal of the destiny of more thnn 11,-
niHi.tiiH. people.
"Together with the  Philippines go the
Marianne and the Palawans and Carolines. The Philippines hnve nn area of
lM.'iliO square miles: the Marianne or
Ladrone islands have 440 Winnie miles
and the D.ilnwans and Carolines 1430.
Stretching eastward from the Philippines
thi-sc groups extend about 4.") degrees of
latitude. A little farther to the north
and east are the Ilawiiiinns. Should the
I'nited States then build either of the
Isthmian canals she will not only control
the ocean water passage, but iu the most
strategic portion of the Pacific ocean, she
can, as it were, cross tbat vast expanse
of the ocean upon ber own stepping

Washington, Mny 9.—The president
today sent the following message to congress:
To the Congress of the United Stntes:
On the 24th of April 1 directed the
secretary of tlie navy to telegraph orders
to Commodore George Dewey, United
States navy, commending the Asiatic
squadron, then lying in the port of Hong
Kong, to proceed forthwith to the Philippine islands and there commence operations and engage the S-xinisli fleet.
Promptly Obeying the order, the I'nited
states squadron, consisting of tl.e flagship Olympia, Baltimore, Raleigh, Boston and Petrel, accompanied by the revenue cutter Hugh McCulloch as an auxiliary dispatch boat, entered the harbor
of Manila at daybreak on the 1st day of
May and immediately engaged the entile
Spanish fleet, eleven ships, which were
under the protection of the tire of land
forces. After ii Stubborn light, in which
the enemy suffered grent loss, those ve*
sels were destroyed or Completely (lis
abled and the water battery al Qsvttfl
was silenced. Of our brave officers and
men, not one was lost and only eight
injured, and those but slightly. All our
ships escaped serious damage. Hy the
4th of May Commodore Dewey had taken
possession of the naval station at Cavite,
destroying the fortifications there and at
the entrance of the bay and paroling
their gnrrisons. The waters of the bay
are under his complete control. He has
established a hospital within the American lines where 250 Spanish sick and
wounded arc assisted and protected.
Thc magnitude of this victory can
hardly   be measured by   the ordinary
standards of naval warfare. Outweighing any material advantage is the moral
effect of this initial success, At this unsurpassed achievement the great heart of
our nation throbs, not with boasting or
with greed of conquest, but with deep
gratitude that this triumph has conic ill
a just cause and that, by the grace of
God, an effective step has thus been taken
toward   the   attainment of wished fn-
To those whose skill, courage nnd devotion have won the fight, Ul the gallant
commander nnd brave officers and men
who aided htm, our country owes nn incalculable debt, Feeling as our people
feel, and speaking in their naiiic, I at once
sent a message lo Commodore Dewey
thanking him and his officers and men
for the splendid achievement and overwhelming victory and informing him '

Settlers on the northern part of the
Ne/. Perce reservation are experiencing
difficulty in determining their lines, and
the neighborhood is frequently callrl
upon to settle disputes thnt ni\* constantly becoming more complex and bewildering, ilie settlers claim that the government surveyors made a mistake in their
lines. The Bettlers in some cases have
made their own lines, with the result
that matters are pretty well mixed. Some
of the over-zealous ones, finding themselves short in land by reason of their
neighbors' new survey, have stepped over
the reservation line and are encroaching
on old settled land, in order to get a full
claim. Ono fellow a few weeks ago
thought he would get a "cinch" on his
claim by hiring help and fencing it in
in a hurry. At noon he had about 100
rods of fence built, and went home to dinner, and as it was raining, was not in a
hurry to return. In tlie meantime some
of his enemies were on the alert, and
seized the opportunity to lay the entire
fence flat on the ground and cut the
wires. This instance has served to add
more intensity to the condition of affaire,
and claims are being watched with vigilance, so a fight is liable to occur at any

He has felt it his duty to resign ami go

Consequently he tendered his resignation

would be impossible to release him without causing much confusion nnd possible
loss, as he is tbe only one familiar with
the details of thc state's complicated land
business. Consequently the Iward refused to ne. ept the resignation.

Editor Silveiitonian :
Dear Sir:-
Having   heard   it   rumored
that the Rev. Air. ]>vell is likely  to be
mo-red by the conference now in session
to Rossland, I think it pertinent to ask
that a statement should bo given by him
to the people of Silverton regarding tlie
status quo of oar church.   Tbere seems
to be a considerable   misunderstanding
regarding: tho rights of  the several denominations und should Mr. Powell leave
us ill this uncertainty there will surely
be friction between onr various denominations in future.   I therefore ask Mr.
Powell the folliowing questions and inquest that lie will answer  through the
columns of the Silvkktonian.
In whose name is the church now hold.
Has any denomination rights not en-
Joyed by all others?
Are any denominations debarred from
tlie use ef the chnruh ?
Wtjowe $•* present trustees?
\Vhat.were the conditions under which
money   was  solicited for the building
fund 191* the church?
In asjring thn above question!! I merely desire,to know the ground on which
we, as church .goers, stand and also to
avoid any difficulties which the pre-tut
uncertainty might csuse.
Thanking you in advance for your
valuable tpace, I am

SILVERTON,      -      •      -
The sailors of the Spanish fleet are
singing " We never care to wander
from our own firesides. "
Political rumors are beginning to
circulate quite freely in our neighor-
hood and possible candidates ond
their chances are being discussed.
Among those mentioned as being
likely to enter the competition are
R. Oreen, ex-mayor of Kaslo, E. 0.
Buchanan, who led the Government
ranks in the last campaign, A. E
Fauquier, cf New Denver and last but
by no means least \V. Hunter of
Silverton. It is a little early to make
any predictions but it will be apprising
if among those mentioned and tl e
possible others,  a good   representative
cannot be fiord. A lively ii-htis
looked for, both in the convention ahil
the election, and the stirring utterances
of the stump orators will ere loir.; he

peaceful land.
Oh, if it should rain! !!!
Bicyclists must keep off the war-pith.
Anyone f mind chewing tlio rug will be

All signs reading *' keep olftii j grass'

I've got a Iptter, parsoa, from my too
away out Weat;
A'n mv ol' heart ia heavy as an anvil in
my breast,
To think the boy. whose futur' I had
once so proudly planned,
Should wander from  the path o'  right
an' come to such an end 1 *
I told him when he left us, only three
short years ago.
He'd find himself a plowin' in a mighty
crooked row—
He'd miss his lather's counsels, and his
mother's prayers, too;
Bnt he said the farm waa hateful an' he
guessed he'd bave to go.
I know there's big temptation  for a
youngster in the West,
But I believed our Billy had the courage
to resist;
An' when he Mt I warned him o* tbe
ever-waitin' snares
That lie like hidden aarpents in life's
pathway everywheres.
But Bill he promised faithful to be keer-
ful, an' allowed
He'd build a reputation that'd make ns
mightv proud;
But it seems as hbw my council sort 0'
faded from his mind.
An' no ■ the hoy's in trouble of the very
wustest kind i
HIh letters came so seldom that I somehow sort o' knowed
That Billy was a-trampin' on a mightv
roc lev road;
But I never once  imagined  he   would
''   bow mv head in shame,
An' in the dust'd waller his ol' daddy'*
honored na-i e.
He writes from nut in Denver, an' the*
story's mightv short;
I just can't tell  his mother; it'll V-rustf
her poor ol' heart I 1
An' sn I reckoned, parson, you might
break the news to tier-
Bill's in the Legistaur', an' he dosen't
say what fur.

Protection commence* at home. A
man doieg business in the various
towns of (he Slocan, no matter what
his business piny be, from running n
hotel to a blacksmith shop, expects
and rightly to, to have the patronage
of his fellow townsmen. His prices
mav be a trifle higher than thn cheap
john firms in the East who flood the
western mining camps with their catalogues, who never spent a cent
directly or indirectly amongst the
community they ask the patronage of,
who can undersell sotre of our merchants by offering inferior goods and
employing psuper labor. To deal
with these people is to do no better
than what we accuse tlie Chinamen of
doing. Spend your money amongst
those you make it from, live and let
live, be a man   amongst   men.
ToBRX are more signs in sight on the
streets of Silverton proclaiming it to
be a solid mining town than any other
town on Slocan Like shows. The psck
trains going up to ths different mines
and prospects adjoining and tributary
to the town; the miner in his overalls
with his blankets on his back, bis head
full of new resolves, and his heart
bouyed up with hop" and courage,
going up to work; tho miner who has
just come down with his muscles hard

ened and pockets bulging out with
bills, the accumulation of weeks of
hard work; all are very much in evidence These nre signs that anyone
farniiliar with western camps knows
at a glance mean mines aud good ones
backing up the town.
