To tha Editor.
Allow ma to lay b-ifora your readers some facts with regard to ths
Esquimau and Nanalmo Railway Compsny. This Company, hi If the stock ot
which Is betel-red to be bald by 0. P.
Huntingdon and tha Southern Pacific
gapg, bold roughly tha whole east third
ol Vancouver Island. Two million acres
or so in* solid block, and tax ran roa
First as regards pros pectors, tha Company compels every one wbo locates •
mineral claim forthwith, on threat of
ejeotiof, to pay thtm |260. for allseed
surface righto, half down Mid half in a
year, It la not that the KioelS.aa acre,
would be unreasonable, were the data
of known value; but the company, ao tar
as known, have no right whatever "to
aiiuNDtfrst payment. It la absolute
lawless wrong. JB__ the people are poof
and must submit; wbo could go to lair
with the R.& Ny »-
Then as to th* farmers tha Company
rewrves great bfceka of the  best land
aod will not aetf lt at all; and their
lowest price for inferior land Is high tor
poor people.   But, besides, in their daed
to settlors they uot only reserve  the
■rjgbtto mine anywhere on the land,   on
compensation, but' they reserve the right
io take all the land they may want for
their railway, and all Ibe timber for railway purposes,  without   pa.ti.vo    ahv
coMPS-fSATio** at all.    Probably few ot
ths settlers hall grasp tha offset ot these
deads.   But the pahU&ahould also realise the personal injury With which   the
Company are   thus able to threaten
whole sections of tha. population.   If a
poor farmer crosses them, politically or
othsrwiaa, thajr can first, if any pnreUfse
money ue ooUtanding at interest, as ii
often the case?-' Order him peremptorily
to pay the whole down, or be tarned out
o! house aod home; or even   if  ho   has   opposed
fully  paid for his land   and  got  his
deed, tbey can send their men to cut an d
carry away every stick of timber ou  hit
place.   If whole trees be too cum.--.-i-
some they will take just the tops  or so
forth, and let the rest spoil.   Aud  tbe
timber is often worth  mire tbtn tbe
land it stands on,
There Is, besides, a wholly different
■ |ii-:stion. Tbfirt) l« strong reason to
beleive that tha land doea not belong io
the Company, thai tb«y hold it, not as
owners, but ns mere trustee*, to sel' as
Crown land. Should this be established,
the Company will probably be liable to
tbe Provincial Treasury for a large sum
on account of all the taxes lost through
the land being wlth-held from sale,
instead ot being settled by the tax-payer,
The remedy propoaed ia not to take
any property from the Compu-y, but
to compel them to deal with the laud in
a public-spirited manner for the country's good; or rather it they cannot be
trusted to do so themselves to have it
managed for them by the government,
returning them the proceeds. At the
same time the question, what interest
the Company has In tha land, sho _M be
determined impartially, by the Courts
for instance, and by" fa'., suit without
It might be*un just to lay the blame of
these wrongs on the succession ot eminent men who have held the Premier-
»uip of this Province, while tha matter
was half dormant and perhaps bnt half
understood. But now all should join
througbt the Province,".without regard to
Party, ln enforcing tha law, in establishing the public rights, and io defending
our farmers and niinere from highhanded wrong.

Aaaured   Uim.
The meeting held hero iu the interests
of Jonn L. Retallack, last Thursday
morning turned out to be a grand success
for Robert F. Green. Tbe approach of
the s. s. Hunter having on board the Hon
J, H. Turner, Premier, waa tbe signal
(or'a grand salnte of giant powder and
the faithful few gathered at tho wharf to
meet the Premier, an attempt to raise a
cheer was a dismal failure. At about
9 o'clock the meeting wai called to order
in Mc Kinnon's Hall, with J. A. Mc*
Kiniion in the chair. The Government
candidate first addressed the meeting
giving his reasons why ha was supporting
the Turner party and a great many more
reasons wby he should not support tbem.
Mr. Retallack dwelt at great lengths on
tbe benefits we had received from tha
Government and in the next breath
stated tbat we had been neglected on
account ot having heretofore elected men
oppoBi'd to the government. How he
reconciled these statements is not known.
Even with the presence of the Premier
it was impossible for Mr. Retallack to
arouse any enthusiasm and his vaporing
remarks met with a stony silence. On
the conclusion ot Mr. Retallack's speech,
tbe chairman introduced the Hon. J.H.
Turner, Premier of British Columbia.
Mr, Turner then entered into a tambling
discourse concerning tbe policy of his
Governmel and touched on the'Railroad
question, the financial policy ot tbe
Government, tbe miners license and
other matters of public interest including
a boom speech on the Klondyke. Although the Prouoier received at times
applause he recognised that the meeting
although failed by Mr. Ratal lack's
friends Was decidedly in fayor of Mr.
Green. *
At ihe conclusion of tbe Premier's address Dan. Cronin asked leave toaddresa
the meeting in behalf of Robert F Green.
Htarty cheers and applause greeted Mr
Cronin as be stepped on the platform
and bis criticism of the foregoing speak
era waa applauded time and time again.
Mr. Cronin said he did not think thst
Mr.. Retallack waa responsible for the
use of public money for campaign purposes but be knew from personal experi
ence that this was Government tactics.
He was not surprised, he said, to see Mr.
Kerr taking an active part in support the
Government as be was tho man wbo
had tried to bring Chinamen to New
A  Gr-vve Accusation.
Refering again to the charges of bribery, Mr.Cronin Raid that he had been ap-
pr >ached In New Denver by R T Loworv,
editor of tbe Ledge, and told that if raon-
would help the Government in Silverton
ho (Mr. Lowery) knew where it could be
got and would see tbat it was sent.
In replying, Mr. Retallack said tbat
ha wished to distinctly deny the person,
si knowledge of any attempt to debauch
the electorate and tbat Mr. Lowery wn
acting without his knowledge or consent.
J G Gordon, the next speaker,
aroused the ire of the Premier by refer-
ing in no uncertain manner to the extravagance of the premature grant for
the erectiou of the Parliament buildings
at Victoria at a time when tbe country
was in nc-d of the money for opening it
up. He accused tbe Government of
acting against the best interests of the
country in using its influence towards
shutting out the Corbin R.R. from Boud
dsry and in their favors shown towards
the Dunamuirs.
Tho Piemler replied to Mr. Gord on by
onlling him an ignoramus and by accusing him of dealing with matters over
which the Province had no control.
He licensed tbe last speaker of being
unpatriotic epough to wish to see an
Amer ican Railroad competiug with the
Canadian roads. At this stsge of the
proceedings the Premier', temper
evidently caused him to overlook the
fact that Mr.Retallack was also opposed
tohis action regarding this matter and
hi inveigled against the Corbin Railroad
at great length, Mr. Retallack swallowed
thia plank of his glatform and sat mutely
by while the question was being dle-
ussed. Fortunately Mr. Green will
save us tbe trouble of seeing Mr. Turner
forcing the Government candidate's
platform, plank by plank, down our Govr-
erment candidate's throat after July 9th.
The meeting broke up with cheers for
the chairman and Bob Green.
\Tensdaywas" an eventful day in
Ne? Denver's careor" to quote tha words
of oi- of their local orators. A large
croid gathered.to hear tbe Premier in
Clevcr's Hall in tha morning and two
houffl was spent by the honorable
gentleman defending himself and making
protdaas. In fact ao long did he talk
thai tha crowd had mostly dispersed
before Mr. Cliff arose to point out the
glaring Inconsistencies In the Premier's
speech. As less than half on hour waa
givfed this gentleman to answer.aapasch
of two hours duration Mr, Cliff could not
do iilmielt justice but showed what he
could do If given a fair time to reply.
In the evening a meeting waa held by
Robert F. Green at which John L.
Bet-Mack, J, M. Kellie and R. B. Kerr
addjeased tbe large audience present,
Mr.'Oreen stated fully his position in
regard to the issues before tbe electors.
Mr, Green declared his posttfon towards
the Turner Party and said he waa
prepared to vote against the Turner
Government in a want of confidence
motion on any of the planks of his
platform. Mr. Green's speech received
;y applause from the voters present.
John L. Retallack answered Mr. Gieen
and met with much applause especially
from tbe inevitable small boys in the
backbenches. A masterly criticism of
the f nance policy of tbe Turner Government was given by J. M. Kellie wbo
dwelt at length on the injustice Bhown
to ma Kootensys in the nutter of
expenditure of tbe public funds. The
loan «f five million dollars recently raised
would lie opportionatety payable by
West Kootenay while we received
nothing out of it, besides supporting the
whole Province in tbe exoeaa of our
revenue paid over the appropriations
received. R, B. Keir was tbe next
speaker an 1 made a fluent speech-mo itly
words. He informed tbe audience that
John L. Retallack would be New
Denver's representative in particular
and the Slocan iu general. He said that
Premier Turner had told throughout tbe
Province tbat Mr. "Green bad offered
himself as a Government candidate.
This was denied absolutely by Mr.
Green' who said that the Kootenaian
article on this matter bad never been
before brought to his notice. The meeting broke up With cheers tor Green and
counter cheers for Retallack.

Kingston, funo 20.—The st'-mera
Bowdin, Jiunaica and Brooklyn arrived
here today and report having passed, in
Windward passage last night, 24 American vessels heading southward.
Waahington, June 20.—No doubt is entertained at either the war or navy department that Shafter'a expedition haa
arrived safely off Santiago by this time.
As a matter of fact, it is believed the
first transports arrived near the blockading fleet Saturday night.
According to the plans arranged for debarkation, the fleet of tru-iaports wus to
lay iu a safe position until Sampson
cleared the way for a landing. The ae-
lection of a landing place has been left
entirely to the judgment of Shafter and
Tlie first business in order upon the
arrival of transports off Santiago would
be a war council between Sampson and
some of his naval captains on the one
hand and Shafter and hia staff on the
other, the purpose being to seftlc all Uie
details of the debarkation. Meanwhile
the fleet of transports would lie out At
sea at least 10 miles beyond the blockading squadron, in order to be entirely
safe from attack of the Spanish torpedo
'Die work of debarking the troops is
not to be one of hours, but rather of
days, according to the opinion of army
officers. A great deal depends upon the
point selected for thc landing. It is
thought that Aguidores, east of Morro
castle, would be a likely landing place,
in view of the fact that it has a wharf
which would be extremely useful for
landing the heavy supplies-and ordnance
of the siege train.
Blown Up _r Spaniards.
Cincinnati, Ohio, June 20.—The finishing department of the King Powder Company, in Warren county, was destroyed
last night in a manner leading to the belief it was the work of enemies of the government. The building, in which was a
quantity of smokeless powder, had evidently been .fired by .two men near midnight, one of them being bady burned.
The injured man was taken into custody.
Ue is apparently a foreigner, but so badly,
injured he can scarcely talk. The company has a contract to supply the government, and this is thought the reason
the destruction was attempted.

Chicago, June 2.—A special cable today
from a Record correspondent with
ey's fleet reads as follows:
"Hong Kong, June 20.—General Fill

There were great ceremonies, and a; declaration of independence was read renouncing Spanish authority. Aguinaldo

Hong Kong, June 20.—U. S. 8. Zafiro,
which has just arrived here, brought
news from Manila, under date of June 17,
from which it appears the Insurgents-now
bold 4000 Spaniards and 1000 natives as
prisoners, together with their arms. The
insurgents also captured on June 14 the
town of Oalanga, tho place next in importance to Manila on the bay. Frequent
fires have occurred at Manila and at Ma-
Thirty carbineros who attempted to de
sert from the Spanish forces June 16 were
arrested and shot.
Aguinaldo informed Consul Williams of
the formation of the provisional government merely for cohesive purposes and
notified him of the desire of the insurgents that the Philippines become an
American colony.
The Spaniards have sunk the cruiser
Cebu so as to obstruct the passage of the

No Release for Hobaon.
Washington, June 20.—The following
dispatch was received today from Commodore Watson: "Captain Genoral Blanco statea tliat the Spanish  government
, refuses to exchange Hobson and his men."
The refusal of the Spanish office™ to
exchange Hobson causes a disagreeable
feeling here. While there ia not a positive
obligation  upon the belligerents to exchange prisoners, yet it is the universal
practice in civilized warfare.
and Australia to slow up and wait for
the City of Sydney.
Eight cases of measles broke out on
the Australia. The sick men were separated from the other passengers on the
ship by being quartered on the hurricane deck and the surgeons had the cases
well in hand when the vessels arrived.
As soon aa the three vessels were
sighted all Honolulu turned out to welcome the soldiers. The docks were lined
with people and as the vessels entered
the harbor the spectators yelled themselves, hoarse. Such a scene of enthusiasm had never been witnessed in Honolulu.
When the vessels docked it was late,
so the order was given to allow no one
ashore, but the next morning about half
the troopa were allowed to land. During
tho day they were given the freedom of
the city. The men visited Walkiki and
other points of interest and had a pleasant time generally.
At noon President Dole and his cabinet received the officers of the expedition.
During the reception the steamers and
the grounds of the executive building
were thronged with people.
On June 3 the soldiers were entertained on the grounds of the executive building. President Dole was on hand to welcome them. The utmost freedom prevailed, the affair being very informal.
To each man the chief executive gave a
word of welcome to Honolulu. An outdoor luncheon was served by tlie ladies
of the city.
The transports left for Manila on the
•Jtli. Tlie Charleston steamed outside and
waited for the fleet, which got away
about 10 o'clock, with the Charleston in
the rear. While the vessels were in port
they took in the neighborhood of 1000
tons of coal.
Of the 2500 men among the various vessels, but two desertions were recorded
and they are from an Oregon regiment.
Two other men were left behind, one being discharged for disabilities and the
other is in a local hospital.

Off Santiago, June 17, via Kingston,
June 18.—The week's campaign in eastern Cuba has resulted in the practical demolition of the outer fortifications of
Santiago, in anticipation of the arrival
of the -troops, and the occupation of the
fine harbor of Guantanamo in which today are anchored such magnificent ships
as the Oregon and St Paul, together with
the Marblehead, Dolphin, Suwanee and 11
other auxiliary gunboats, colliers and
press dispatch boats, in an average depth
of 17 fathoms of water.
The military resistance to definite occupation is practically closed since the
bombardment of Wednesday.
An intercepted official report of the
Spanish military commander indicates
that his military resources are exhausted. His soldiers are now on half rations.
There are supplies only for the remainder of June. The commandant has already seized all private drug supplies, in
order that they may be bestowed to the
use of the soldiers.
The insurgent forces, armed and equipped by Captain McCalla, not only proved
daring scouts, but turned out to be brave
fighters and good shota with the Lee-
Mctford rifles. Our own men are warm
in their praise and look for unexpectedly stroing co-operation on the part of thc
Cuban army.

this respect his detention ceases to be
that of a prisoner of war and becomes one

Reduelnsr Slae of Clalma.
A movement is on foot in the house at
Washington, D. O, to reduce the present
legal dimensions of a mining claim about
one-half. It is asserted that if a mining
claim is good, whether it be of gold or
silver, 300 by 750 feet is large enough for
any one individual; if it is not a good
claim, then it is more than any miner
wants.: The greatest foe to mineral development in any state, it is asserted, is
the excessive number of claims held by a
few persons. A bill lias been prepared to
compel every mine owner to work out his
assessment and to allow no man to hold
more than one lode or placer mine at a
time, and reduce the size of all claims to
300 by 750 feet
Dolnc   Assessment   Work.
The committee on mining affairs of the
house of representatives haa had its attention called  to statements  made  by
prominent citizens of Whatcom county,
Washington, whose  names for obvious
reasons are withheld, that it would be
bad policy to set aside that provision requiring assessment work to be done upon
mining claims.   A movement was on foot
to suspend this work during the present
year, but the statements whieh have been
made to the committee put a different
light upon the matter, and no action may
be taken.   It is probable Uiat such legislation will result mainly to the advantage of bands of speculators who have
tied up the principal mining claims in
each locality, and compel all those who
actually, .wish   to work  and develop, a
mine to purchase it from them at a high
price.   It is pointed out that it is not
difficult for the bona fide miner, who has
but one claim, to do his assessment work
each year; and that in fact nearly all of
these do more than the necessary amount
.of assessment work every year.   On the
other hand, it is obviously impossible for
speculators, without tbe expenditure of
large sums of money, to do Uie work upon
the large number of claims which they
are holding for the purpose of selling at
high prices to those who wish actually
to engage in mining.   It is claimed, therefore, that the law is clearly a good one
and should not be suspended, for the reason that it compels these speculators to
let go the claims they are holding under
fictitious names, and thus permit actual
miners to file upon them.
Oldeat Coal Mine In Karnpe.
Some time ago it was proposed to celebrate this year the 700th anniversary of
the discovery of coal in Europe, which,
it was claimed, was made near Liege, in
Belgium, in 1108.    Dr. F. Biittgenbach
has now published a pamphlet to prove
that  the first discovery   was  made  85
years earlier, in 1113, in the basin of the
River  Worm, north  of  Aixla Chapelle.
He  brings   forward   much  evidence   to
prove that outcrops of coal were worked
in that year, and long after by the monks
of  Kerkrade,   who   first   discovered   its
qualities aa fuel and utilized the mineral,
or "black earth," as it waa called.   The
word "kuhl," an old German terra meaning a pit, was the origin, according to
this statement, of the German "kohl"
and the English "coal."   The generally
accepted legend haa been that coal was
first used at Liege by a blacksmith named
Hullos,   from   whose   name   comes   the
French "hotiille"—coal, says the Engineering and Mining Journal.    He found
that the "block earth" which outcropped
near Liege could be used in the forge instead  of charcoal.    Coal,  however,  had I
been used at Sheffield, in England, some
15 years earlier for the same purpose.
April Copper Prodnetloa.
Copper production tn the United States
in April, as reported by John 8tanton,
for the chief producers, was very large,
reaching a total of 22,000 long tons of fine
copper, which exceeded by 2528 tons the
March report, and by 6465 tons the output for April, 1807.   The reporting mines
have increased their producUon, and there
has also lieen a notable gain in that given
in the reports as coming from "outside
sources"—that is, from small mines not
in the producers' list and from the smelters of lead, gold and silver ores.   For the
four months ending with April the increase in production this year haa been
8108 long tons, or 11.7 per cent, over Mr.
Stanton's reported production in 1807.
Mast   l'»*   Poata  at  Corners.
Probably there is not a section in the
mineral act of British Columbia that ia so
often misinterpreted as is section 18.   It
relates to the staking of claims, and has
been  generally  interpreted  as  meaning
that, where there is no timber and post*
niouuments to mark the boundary lines
of hi* claim, Suoh i* not the case, and
as this is a most important point it might
be well to refer to thc act itself. Section
10 says: "A mineral claim shall be
marked by two legol posts. • • *
Tie locator shall also place a legal post
at the point where he has found rock in
plae." Then follows the paragraph re-
latng to Btone monuments, but it refer*
only to the case of running the blase line,

"When a claim has been located the holder shall immediately mark the line be-
t'vten posts Nob. 1 and 2 so that it can be
diainctly seen, by blazing trees and cut-
tin; underbrush; and in a locality where
dure is neither timber nor underbrush
he shall set legal posts or erect monu-
ineits of earth or rock not less than two

Mole St. Nicholas, June 18.-6:30 p. in.
—News from Guantanamo bay, up to this
morning, shows that naval* operations
there continue most active and with the
advantage on the side of the Americans.
Yesterday morning at 0:30 o'clock the
Americans resumed the bombardment of
Guaptanamo town and in the course of
an hour threw into it 75 shells, a great
majority of which appeared to have been
effective. Six of these shells were 13-inch
boys, eight eight-inch and the rest smaller. -The men in the tops could see many
of ihe shells strike in the very midst of
the town, while others fell among the
shipping and commercial buildings near
the water's edge. Smoke arose in dense
columns from the places where thc shells
fell and it is believed the damago, both
by the impact of the missiles and consequent conflagration, was very great.
On Thursday evening the ships had
thrown four 13-inch and nine eight-inch
shells into the town. This bombardment
began at 4 o'clock and ended at 5 o'clock.
Much smoke and confusion was discerned
in Guantanamo during its progress.
Crowds of people and troops of soldiers
were seen moving about and the vessels
in port hurriedly changed their anchorage-
Texaa Battered Caatle Soeapa.
On Wednesday night the Texas penetrated into the bay of Santiago, passed
Morro castle and poured a well directed
fire both on that stronghold and on the
castle Soeapa. This battle began about
11 o'clock and ended about midnight.
There was little response from the Spaniards and such as there was, did hardly
any damage. No one was killed on the
American shine in any of these actions.
The Spanish officers who were captured
on Wednesday at Guantanamo bay are
reported to be on board the Marblohead.
The news of the work on Wednesday
night by the Vesuvius and New Orleans
in Santiago bay is confirmed. The Vesuvius threw shells into the water to explode the mines, while the New Orleans
engaged the fortifications along the short.
The Marblehead has captured a Spanish
sloop in Guantanamo harbor and made

On Board the Associated Press Dispatch
Boat Dandy, off GuanUnamo, via Kingston, Jamaica, June 20.-Cuban scouts report today tliat the inhabitants of Cai-
manera have strewn the streets with
straw and oil, with the intention of
destroying the city and fleeing to the
hills. Caimanera lies four miles up the
bay from Camp McCalla under the guns
of the American ships, and the situation
is desperate. Starving and famine-stricken, convinced of the ultimate triumph of
the American army, and without faith in
the protection of the Spanish soldiery,
thc people are believed to have determined to leave their houses in ashes behind them and seek safety in the hills of
the north. Tlie scouts declare that the
story is accurate, and say that every
building of tlie town is being rapidly prepared for the torch.
Thc situation of the besieged is a fearful one. The people are eating horsea and
mules and arc scouring the hills for fruits
and herbs. Occasionally brief bombardments by the American fleet leave the
helpless citizens terror-stricken, no preparations for defense being made. It is
also stated Uiat the Spanish gunboat at
Caimanera has been loaded with inflammables and will be burned with the city,,
her commander declaring that she .yill
never become an American prize.
The scouts also say the Spanish soldiers
are in almost as complete a state of panic
as are the civilians and that they could
easily be induced to surrender. Some of
the prisoners taken by the' marines also
say that they helieviMhe Spanish troops
are on the verge of surrender, owing to
Uie lack of food. Captain McCalla of the
cruiser Marblehead and Lieutenant Colonel Huntington, in command of the marines, are not so sure, however, of the
Spaiii-h rout
The coast in the vicinity of Guantanamo is dotted with bright-hued Cuban
flags. Numerous camps of the insurgents
have been established along the beach
between Santiago and this place and are
used by the admiral as means of communication with the insurgents in the interior. The information which these men
have given has been proven highly valuable to the Americans. Their stories of
thc disaster to the Spanish soldiers in this
vicinity have been corroborated by prisoners captured annum tlie camp.
Another body of five Spaniards was
captured by Knsign A. A. Pratt of the
Marblehead. While cruising in a steam
launch outside the bay he picked up a
40-foot sloop containing a Spanish captain namctl Tores and four aailora.' They
said they were on their way to Guantanamo to get a supply of coal for the
light house-at Cape Maysi, but the papers
found on the sloop proved that they had
been sent to obtain information relative
to the American forces.
There was a brief bombardment of a
oloekhou.se up the bay by the bnttleship
Oregon yesterday, and it is Believed that
at least a score of Spaniards were killed.
Scouting parties report that the blockhouse was completely destroyed, but that
they were unable to discover any bodies,
the remains of the soldiers who had been
killed probably having been carried off
by their comrades.
Tlie marines are growing restless, owing
to the delay in the arrival of the reinforcement of troops, but 1t ia generally
believed here today that the transport-*
will reach Santiago not later than Monday.

Victoria, B. C, June 18.—The steamer
Miowera brought the following from Honolulu, June 8:
The Hawaiian Star of June 3 publishes
the following story regarding an attempt
to blow up the United States steamer City
of Peking while that vessel was in port
"If report which is in circulation today
is'true, Honolulu came near being the
scene of as frightful a disaster as that of
the Maine. The story is that nothing
more nor less than an attempt to blow up
the Peking magazine was frustrated just
in time. An enlisted man, it ia said, wa*
caught just lu the act of arranging a fuse
connecting with the magazine. The magazine contains 400 tons of powder and bad
been guarded closely. The dastard it is
said is now under the closest guard and
when the Peking gets on the high seas
will be hanged to thc yard arm. ihe
greatest secrecy concerning the matter is
being maintained for fear it would mar
the spirit of the present occasion. The
alleged culprit is said to be half Span-
Sard!" *
The publication caused a sensation in
this city. Military officers on the ship
denied thc truth of the story, but their
denial wns made in a half-hearted way.
There are many corroborative features
which tend to prove the truth of the report, which was first circulated by enlisted men. Others admitted that the
Spanish half-breed was on board ship.
Two Honolulu citizens state that they
were on board the Peking on June 3 when
they saw a man in iron* and under closa
guard. They were onvinced th.it the
prisoner was the man who attempted to
blow up the ship.

connoitered the shore between Cabanas,
two miles westward of the entrance to
Santiago harbor, and Guayacabon, two
miles further west, both of which points
lie east of the range of mountains surrounding Santiago bay. Tlie launches
pushed their noses into a hornet's nest.
The brush was fairly alive with Spaniards, and thc fire was so fierce that the
retreat of the launches had to be covered
by thc Vixen and Texas. Lieutenant
Sharp of the Vixen and Lieutenant Harlow in command of the launches were
liotii complimented by Admiral Sampson
for gallantry.
The following is the abstract of Lieutenant Hallows report to thc commander
of the Yixen dated June IS: "The expedition consisted of the steam launch from
the Massachusetts ih charge of Cadet
Hiirt and a launch from the New York in
charge of Cadet Powell. 1 took passage
on the Mas.saehu-.etts launch, leading the
way. Soundings were taken on entering
the bay close under the old fort and we
were preparing to circumnavigate the
bay at full spend when the lire was opened
from the rocks on shore. The Massachusetts launch was some distance ahead
about 30 yards off the fort. There was
ho room to turn and our 1 pounder could
not be brought to bear. We backed and
turned under a heavy fire.
"Cfcdet Hart operated the gun as soon
as it could be brought to bear, sitting
exposed in the bow and working the gun
as coolly and carefully as if at target
practice. Cadet Powell had been firing
since the Spaniards opened. He also
wns perfectly cool. Both launches ran
out under a heavy fire. Hie number of
Spaniards along the shore was large. The
launches, as soon as was practicable,
sheered, to give the Vixen the range of
the fort. The Vixen and Texas silenced
thc short fire promptly.
"I strongly commend Cadet Hart and
Cadet Powell for their cool management
of the launches. One launch wos struck
several times. Nobody on cither was hurt.
A bullet struck a shell at (Met Harts
feet between a projectile and the powder
but failed to explode the latter.
"Coxswain ODonncll and Seaman
Bloom are commended, as also is the
coolness with which the marines and sailors worked under Spanish Are.

l.un.l at Manila-Dramatic Scene
on Santiago "Walla.
On Board the Associated Preaa Boot
Dauntless, off Santiugo de Cuba, Saturday, June 18.—Noon.—Via Kingston, Jamaica, Sunduy, June 10.—A careful inspection of the fortifications along the
crest of the hills defending Santiago harbor since the bombardment Thursday
morning shows the American gunners
spread wreck and ruin everywhere. Some
of the batteries were demolished beyond
repair. The vultures which circled the
hills as thick as swallows around a chimney for hours after the firing ceased furnished gruesome evidence of the fatality
among the Spanish soldiers. Hundreds
of trooj-g could be seen from the ships
digging in mounds of earth piled by the
explosion of the projectiles from the
heavy guns for bodies, while their heads
were fanned by the wings of the black
scavengers of the battlefield.
There were two spots, one on the east
ond the other on the west of the harbor entrance, which were denuded of foliage. The hilltops seem literally blown
away. These marked the places where
the 200-pound charges of guncotton blown
by the Vesuvius landed.
But the most ominous token of death
flew from Morro eustle. The saffron flag
of Spain was half-masted for several
hours. The significance of this is not
known. It is not customary to half-mast
flags, but possibly some Spanish leader
was killed by the heavy fire of guns,
though some officers of the squadron believe that the flag was half-masted as a
notification to the Americans that Lieutenant Hobson and his brave men were
dead. If such is the case they must have
been wantonly murdered. Tlie Spanish
might seek to lay their death to the bombardment, but not a shot from the Americans Btruck the fortress. Neither Admiral Sampson nor Commodore Schley believes that Lieutenant Hobson and his
party have been killed.
We have 17 prisoners taken at Guantanamo, including a lieutenant, besides
a number in the United States for reprisals or exchange.
Spanish Troopa Demoralised.
There was evident demoralization
among the Spanish troops during the
bombardment, Officeis could be seen
with drawn swords driving the men to
the guns, but even then they could not
be forced to stay so long as our fire was
directed at them.- Fifteen minutes' night
work of the Vesuvius had shattered
their nerve*.
It i* believed by some that the 12-
inch projectile fired from the Texas,
which was reported to have exploded the
powder magazine in one of the western
batteries, did not fall in the battery,
but went beyond and blew up one of the
ships in the harbor.
A dramatic incident of the bombard
ment was the act of a Spanish officer,
who bravely ran along the parapet under
a heavy fire encouraging his men to
stand by their guns. Shot and shell
rained about him, and after one terrific
explosion he was seen no more, and the
parapet disappeared. He could not have
escaped death.
German* May Land at Manila.
London, June 20—The Berlin corre
spondent of the Times *ays:
It seems probable that if AJmiral Dewey is unable to undertake the responsibility for thc safety of the Germans at
Manila, Admiral Deidrichs may land a
force. Once a German landing has taken place German interests will doubtless
assume a new aspect and as the Marine
Politische Correspondenz has already
pointed out, it is as easy to claim a guarantee or guarantees for the future in thc
Philippines as it was in the Shan Tung
The Kolniache Zeitung, uttering a
warning to the United States that it will
not find colonising easy, proceeds to say:
"An administration which is so corrupt
and so completely at the mercy of most
pernicious political influences as thc Union will hardly repair the ravages
wrought by Spanish neglect and priestly
rule in the course of centuries. The citizens of most of the free republics do not
seem to realize the enormous burdens
which a military occupation of these colonies and their protection by a navy will
impose upon a state. The Americans are
not even pttpared to protect their own
coasts against a naval power of any importance."
Where Are  the  Transporter
On Board the Dispatch Boot Dauntless,
off Santiago de Cuba, June 18.—Via
Kingston, Jamaica, June 10, 2 p. m —
The horizon is eagerly and patiently
scanned for a glimpse of the long expected transports. Tlie delay in their
arrival is inexplicable, as much favorable
weather is being lost and the hurricane
season is due in less than SO days. Meanwhile from Kingston and Port Antonio
come reports that large quontities of sup
plies have been smuggled into Cuba.
Admiral Sampson is in daily communication with the insurgents under Colonel
Obraro, who are investing Santiago on
thc land side, and are continually skirmishing with the Spanish outposts.
General Linares now commands the
military forces in the town, where there
are 8000 regulars concentrated. The
civilians ore in a starving condition ond
their deplorable condition will be more
aggravated from day to day.
Spies report to Admiral Sampson that
the Spanish general Joral and several
officers were killed by the guncotton explosion at the first trial of the batteries

Hong Kong, June 21.—According to

was reported there that General Noncnt

troops from Batacan, 30 miles north of

The authorities still use mixed force*,
with the result, that insurgent riflemen
are frequently found to have passed the

behind. Nothing is visible among thc
trees. The insurgents, who fire sparingly,
div.w abundant Spanish volleys, and especially at night. Thc Spaniards incessantly squander tons of ammunition into the
shadow of the thickets, apparently in the
hope of quickly exhausting their stock
aod being in a position to surrender honorably after a hopeless fight.
In the meantime the Spanish commanders have lieen ordered to burn the
villagers' huts outside of town, so as to
deprive the enemy of shelter, and hundreds of peaceful natives are homeless.

Central America. According to stories
told by her passengers, the Central Americans side with the Spaniards in the present war, although the governments of the
several republics are strictly neutral. The
natives think Uiat Spain is getting the
better of the war, as Spanish agents
spread oil kinds of stories about reverses
of the Americans. The news of Dewey's
victory was received with  great surprise.
Caatelar Decline* to L«ad.
London, June 21.—According to a dispatch to the Daily News from Gibraltar,
the republicans at Madrid have again
vainly tried to induce Senor Castelar to
return to the head of the republican
party. Castelar says his health is bad
and that he is too old to work, but expresses the conviction that a representative government is at the door ond is
about to take possession of Spain, "Carl-

The Premier apoligized for the cold
be had, when he was here trying to
raise a cheer for John L. Retallack
No wonder he caught a cold in the
severely, chilly reoeption of the Government candidate.
We are in receipt of tbe first number
of the Slocan Sun published in Kaslo.
It is a good, breezy paper full of news
and ably edited. It cornea forth with
a good clean declaration that it will
support Mr. Green during the present
.campaign, and its reasons why. It
is a welcome addition to our exchange
We have neither time, spafife nor
inclination at. tbe present time to
answer the driveling* ot the de-eased
imagination of the literary fakir at the
foot of the lake. When we lower our
editorial columns to enter into personalities we hope to do it in a more
gentlemanly manner tl*.an is shown by
the charity supported Slocan City
The stream of abuse, ridicule, and
childishness shown by the Government
Press in this Riding is taken from the
cue giyen by the Government candidate himself. The absurd spectacle
that John L Retallaok succeeded in
making of himself in New Denver on
Wednesday evening and the mock-heroics with which he met a grave accusation is only characteristic of the party.
At his own request to have the
matter of the misuse of the public
funds threshed out, Mr. Green read
declarations by Alex, McKenzio, 0.
Martin and Aug. Carney, all of Kaslo,
which to all fair-minded men showed
Mr. Retallaok in a -very unenviable
light. Alex. McKenzie declared that
although appointed foreman on a public trail he would not have had the
hiring or d*smi»*ing of the men under
him as these had been selected for him
by John Keen, Mining Recorder,

}ask asked in an aggrieved tone, what
connection this had with bit-? Chas.
Martin declared that he had applied
for work on the public work and was
told that if he would vote for Retallack
he could get work. Then the argumen
tative talent of the Government candidate was shown in all its crushing
strength, With the light of inspiration in his eyes John L.-Retallack ssid
"Charley Martin has a cracked head."
But it was towards the accusation of
Aug. Carney that the virtuous indignation of the Broker roip to fever beat
and crumpling the declaration in his
hand, he cast it from him as though
its touch could eonta-uinata the hands
of a Government supporter. It was
an exhibition of melodramatic art never before witnessed in New Denver-
Thus did Mr. Retallack disprove the
sworn statements of three well-known
voten. t..i, _ -:

The voters of the Slocsn Riding are
intelligent enough to see through the
petty tricks that the government and
its heelecs are playing upon a disgusted
and long suffering people. Four mora
years pf this kind of government and
British Columbia will be a good
country to emigrate from. Over
burdened with debt, handicapped by
antidelu vian laws, with a largo Chinese
population, and delivered body and

and monopolies. This is the prospeot

rights. Put yoursholder to the wheel
and do your share towards turning
down the gang, wbo daring the last
four years have dickered away your
rights to corporations and neglected
to attend to the necessary legislation
that you, as miners, asked for. When
the Mineral Act was tinkered with,
as it was at different times, fnstead of
aiking tbe practical mining men what
wu needed, our government went to
the yellow legged experts, wbo know
more about sinking other peoples
money than about sinking shafts and
more successful in working suckers
than mines. Vote against the party
wbo bas refused to remove the tax on
working n-iiiers. Vote against the
party who has refused to legislate
against the pauper labor of China and
who places tbe Chinese on an equality
with yon, in fact places thorn above
you in the eyes of the law. This
party, represented by John L
Retallack, now comes before you,
asking you to return them to the
power they have used agsinst you for
the last fonr years. They are promising and doing everything to seoure
your vote, no trick being to low or
dirty for them   to  resort  to.   They
When a government is so thoroughly
discredited that its members find it
impossible to secure candidates who ail)
endorse its policy, it is time such a government was turned down. The best
evidence that the Turner government's
policy is repudiated dy the electors of
West Kootenay is found In the fact tbat
in tbe four ridings there ia but one
straight government candidate, asking
tbe suffrages of the electors upon tbe
opposition party's platform. A government that is ashamed of its own? policy
is nnwortby of support.

Ci-AiKMAN or Tint Convention  or
West Kootenay :
Having been nominated by a representative convention of the Independent
electors of tbe Slocan lliding of West
Kootenay, over which you presided, aa a
candidate for tbe representation of the
riding in the Legislative Assembly, I beg
lesve to accept tbe honor thus conferred upon me, and to assnre you tliat
if elected, as I feel confident that with
your active assistance and support I shall
be, I propose to labor earnestly and constantly for the promotion of the material
interests of the riding without distinction
of locality, and of the Province ot British
Columbia generally.
In accepting the nomination thus
offered me desire to state briefly the
position which I shall assume upon
questions affecting district and provincial
I beleive that the no-called Turner Government has not desk fairly with the
question of representation. Representation by population is the only fair ami
equitable manner in which the Legiala
live Assembly msy be constituted. Tlie
necessity of an ephemeral government
should form no element ih acting upon
such an important question.
Expepdtture upon public work-- should
I beleive, except In extreme and important cases, be kept fairly within tlie provincial revenue**?, end in most rase*-)
necessary works and improvements of
local interest should be decided upon ami
reccoqiended local advisory hoards, and
undertaken under the >uuervi**ioa of thr
provincial engineer and not Mt to ths
tender mercies of a gold commissioner
or other similar officer.
I beleive that there should In* revii-i.m
of the method in which the provincial
sccounts are kept, and sm-h svtteoi adopted as will eliminate all duubilul aud
worthless assets snd such true und pUin
statement of expenditure and aHsetn be
made as will truly aud tully Indicate to
the plain and average citizen the condition of the provincial finances.
I beleive that there should be such
laws enacted and prprnulsrated as will
entirely prevent the competition of cheap
oriental labour with tbat of the wbiie
I beleive that legislation, hitherto prevented by tbe local government? sbould
be adoped to remove the unjust tax imposed upon the mine laborer, and - the
industry .of the worker in metalliferous
miners be planed in the same position as
that of any other class of laborers.
I beleive that encouragement should
be given for tbe construction of railways
intended to devslope the resources of the
Province, and that the railways booused
by;theI'rovinco>liiuld be under Provincial control as to time allowed for
construction, freight and passenger rates,
snd such other regulations as will protect and guard tbe best iuterests of tbe
public whose funds have contribute, to
the roads const meted.
I beleive that tbe interest of the Pro
vince and of each of its constituent parts
will be best promoted by an entire divorce of tbe local Government from all
close corporations and companies which
find profit in preying upon the Provincial resources without nuking any adequate or even small return for the benefit
which they enjoy.
I beleive that tbe mortage tax imposed
by the Turner Government is unjust, iu-
equitsble snd unfair; a direct imposition | 7
upon the unfortunato debtor temporarily
compelled to place a charge upon his
property. I should, therefore, in common with some of tbe foremost provin--)
financiers labour for its prompt removal.
I beleive thst West Kootenay, which
contributes so largely to the Provincial
revenue, should receive a larger sum for
tbe developement of tbe district than
hasbeon hithertft allowed by the Government,'and that the Provincial revenues should be expended within tho
Province and not devoted to extra
Provincial schemes as has been pledged
by the Turner Government,
I believe that uo important amendment vhould  be mado  to tho Mineral
