Mole St Nicholas, Haiti, May 30.—Tlie
following dispatch has been received here
from tlie correspondent of the Associated
Press with the American tleet off Santiago:
Off Santiago de Cuba, May 20.—Commodore Schley and the flying squadron
have the Spanish tleet bottled up in the
harbor of Santiago, Hy the most clever
iminoeu vei ing the commodore allowed the
Spaniards to think he had left iu disgust.
They took the bait and run into the harbor. Schley moved down this morning
and at 0 o'clock by going close to tho harbor he saw the Cristobal Colon, Maria
Teresa, and two torpedo boats.
Commodore Schley has acted upon his
own information and judgment for six
days and believes the whole Spanish fleet
is there. After the discovery of the fleet
he went to breakfast saying:
"I have got them and they will never
get home."
The auxiliary cruiser St. Paul arrived

The officers and men of the flying
squadron arc jubilant over the fact that
the location ot the Spanish fleet has finally
been definitely established.
The temperature here is 110 in the
shade and in the steel tin rets the heat is
actually beyond the power of imagination. The. American ships here are the

On Hoard tho Associated Press Dispatch
Boat Wanda, off Cardenas, May 28.—(Via
Key West, May 29.)—Cardenas harbor
has been completely closed by the Spn-
iards since the attack of the Winslow and
oilier American torpedo boats. This fact
was demonstrated yesterday by the attempt of Ihe English steamship Myrtle-
dene to enter the port to take on a cargo
of sugar.
The Myrtledene had begun to take on
the cargo when war was declared and she
was ordered out by the American gunboat
Mn. hia-. Her owners claimed that under
the blockade proclamation she was entitled to 30 days to load and Secretary of
thc Navy Long gave the steamer permission to return and complete her cargo.
She found, however, that the harbor was
filled with sunken obstructions and could
not get in. She lies outside of the harbor, uncertain whether to attempt to
bring her cargo out in lighters or wait for
the war to end.
The waters of Cardenas are too shallow
for big ships and the Winslow tragedy
probably closes tlie history of naval operations in that quarter.

tlve Instructions—Twenty Thousand Men tor the Rxpedltlon-
Cttble From America by Way of
New York, May 31.—The state department has mailed to General Merritt his
exhaustive instructions for the govern
ment of the Philippines, says the Wash
ington correspondent of the Tribune.
These embody not only full details for
the control of the military and naval
forces in establishing United States sovereignty over the Philippine group, which
were prepared by thc war and navy departments for incorporation in the institutions, but are understood to clothe
thc commanding general with greater dis
cretionury powers than havo ever up to
this time been granted to an agent of this
government. Except in his relations with
foreign powers, growing out of possible
complications in the east, which are to
be referred to Washington for negotiation,
General Merritt's control of affairs will
be practically supreme. The instructions
throughout bear every evidence that the
United States intends to retain permanent
control of ths islands.
In this connection it is understood today that arrangements are already being
made to lay a cable from San Francisco
by way of Hawaii, directly to Manila and
that work will be undertaken as a matter
of necessity the moment the authority
for expenditure can be secured from congress.
Twenty Thousand Men.
By direction of the president formal
orders have been prepared for issue today
adding 8000 men to the department of the
Pacific under General Merritt, increasing
the force to 20,000 men. While Geneiul
Merritt was promised a week ago that
this increase would be made if possible,
difficulties insurmountable in character
were presented and it was only on the
success achieved by thc war department
yesterday, in securing Uie execution of
contracts much earlier than anticipated,
that it was found possible to redeem the
promise. These related not only to
transportation but to the arms, ammunition, uniform and other requisite equipment, it having been feasible up to this
time to secure these essentials for only
12,000 men.
General Merritt was informed last night
of thc improved prospects for augmenting his force nnd was requested to designate such additional volunteer regiments
from the cast as he desired for duty in
the Philippines with the assurance that
his wishes would be respected.
It is understood that he contemplates
asking for at least one regiment from
New York, another from Illinois and from
the District of Columbia a third. It is
likely Colonel Jay Torrey's mounted
Rocky mountain riflemen will be added
to the expedition, which is thus far deficient in the cavalry arm.
Part  ot Gomea'a Army  Seised  Food
and   Ammunition.
London, May 30.—A dispatch to the
Standard from Key West says:
Intelligence has been received here from
Cuba that a portion of the army of General Gomez, consisting of 300 cavalry and
500 infantry, on Saturday at daylight attacked, captured and held for two hours
the town of Remedies, in the province of
Santa Clara.
The Cubans wrere commanded by Oar-
illo, and the object of tlie attack was to
capture a supply of provisions sent there
three days before to the Spanish troops,
who numbered 3000 men. The Cubans looted the place of everything edible, which
was sent to General Gomez, as well as
304 Mauser rifles and 30,000 rounds of ammunition.
The loss of the Cubans was four killed
and three wounded. The Spaniards lost
32 killed and 30 wounded.
Fonr Train Loads Have Arrived In
San  Francisco.
San Francisco, May 20.—Four train
loads of Montana volunteers arrived in
this city yesterday. Tlie Red Cross Society had prepared a breakfast of sandwiches and coffee for the soldiers after
which they were lined up for the march
to Camp Richmond.
The men were given a magnificent reception by the people of this city, who
gathered by thousands along the line of
march, cheering them; and as the soldiers
marched along they were presented with
flowers and fruits in abundance.
The troops were in good physical condition, but were a little fatigued from
their long confinement on the cars. Their
camping grounds at Camp Richmond had
been prepared for them and before evening the men will be comfortably settled
in their now quarters.
l.ee Mantle to Organise Cavalry.
Denver, May 29.—A News special from
Washington says:
Senator Leo Mantle of Montana may
organize a provisional cavalry regiment
in thc mountain states, of whieh he
would go to the front as colonel. He has
already received tenders of enough companies from Montana alone to make the
regiment, but he feels other mountain
states will desire and should be given opportunity to contribute troops if tlie regiment is to be organized.
Go With Merritt.
Washington May 20.—Brigadier Generals Charles King, F. V. Green and Harrison Gray Otis were ordered to report to
General Merritt for assignment to duty
with thc expedition to the Philippines.
Part  Will Be  Used   to  Fill   Present
Wellington ,May 30.—About 20 governors of states and territories have replied
to Secretary Alger's telegrams asking for
their views regarding the filling of the
present volunteer regiments to their maximum strength before beginning the formation of new organisations. Some of
these indicate a preference for the recruiting of entirely new regiments as, under
the first call, leaving the present organizations witli the number of men now contained in them, though practically all
promise the governmen any amount of
troops that are wanted. It is the president's desire, however, that the organizations already formed should be filled to
their maximum strength as the law provides and this policy will be carried out in
tho recruiting under the second call. The
apportion ment to the states has been
made up but not yet given to the public.
Through urgent representations to Secretary Alger some of the states were permitted under the first call to furnish a
greater number of troops than they were
legally entitled to on the basis of popular representation. Consequently in raising the 75,000 men under the second call,
these inequalities will be remedied as far
as practicable with the result that some
of the states may not be called on to
furnish any of tlie men needed. This
course probably may give rise to discontent in states where men wish to serve,
but it is regarded as the only fair wny to
Adjutant General Corbin said that it
had been definitely decided today to use
about 50,000 of the volunteers to be raised
under the new call in filling out deficient
regiments already organized under the
old call. It would take about that number he thought, to fill each company up
to the maximum limit of 1000 men. The
remaining 215,000 men will be organized
into regiments of three battalions each
and distributed among the states and territories in exactly the same proportion as
under the first call. No cavalry however,
would be accepted, and only a limited
number of artillery.
Forces   In   Canada   Will   Be   Commanded by Lord Seymour.
Halifax, N. 8., May 30.—Lieutenant
General Alexander Montgomery-Moore,
who for the past five years has been in
command of the British troops in the dominion, vacated the appointment today.
His successor in command of the dominion forces is Lord William Seymour son
of the late Admiral Sir George Francis
Seymour, brother of the fifth Marquis of
Hereford, and himself one of the best-
known nnd best-liked ollicers in her majesty's army.
Lord Seymour began his career in the
navy in 1854, but after a year of service
with the Baltic fleet, he joined the army
as lieutenant and went with the forces lo
the Crimea, being then but 17 years of
He is now lieutenant general with an
R. opposite his name in the army list as
an indication that he has been rewarded
for meritorious service. He has lieen assistant military secretary and assistant
quartermaster general of the lliiti-.li army, and in 1882 had command of the Cold-
streams in Egypt. He was in the engagement at Tel-el-Maskuta and at the
battle of Tel-el-Kebir.
He and his sisters, one of whom is thc
widow of the late Prince Victor of llo-
henlohc-Langenbiirg, were in 1871 given
the rank of marquis' children.
Drunken   Half Breed  Mexican   Goes
Forth to  Murder.
Albuquerque, N. M., May 29.—Joseph
Romero, while crazed with drink, shot
and almost instantly killed 8-year-old Felipe Abannon and injured Art urn Garcia
so that he will die. Previous to this Romero attempted to kill Runicio A nay a,
but his gun refused to respond to his murderous desire.
Romero filled up on whiskey here and
started for Atrisio, on the other side of
the river. Coming upon the Anaya boy
playing in the road he attempted tn shoot
him, without success. A little further
on he met a number of children playing
together and opening Arc on them, killed
young Abannon and fatally wounded Ar-
turo Garcia.
Romero was captured by Sheriff Hub-
bell who w,as compelled to stand off the
populace at the point of a gun in order
to get the murderer ni jail. A lynching

■/poniards   Say   He   Is  Too   Open   In
Friendship for America.
London, May 30.—Thc Madrid correspondent of thc Times says:
The recent statement of I,ord Wolscley,
the commander-in-chief of the British
army, in conversation with the correspondent of the Associated Press in London that the United States would make
a mistake in attempting to invade < 'nb.i
with volunteers who are not fully drilled
and disciplined on being cabled hack from
New York, still more excited popular feeling against Kngland. Spaniards regard
it as indecorous for the commander-in-
chief of a friendly power to procluim his
sympathy with America and to advise
the latter as to the best method of invading a Spanish possession.

The celebrated lllackrock-Niagara ease
has been decided in the supreme court at
Washington, the decision of the lower
in tiicioiiit being sustained, he case was
tried in the district court of Silver How
county, Mont., In July, 1808. The plaintiffs were William P. Forbls, .lames W.
Forhis, Meyer (ienzbeiger and W. F. Fitzgerald, who owned two-thirds of the Ni-
iigiirii, W. A. Chirk owning the other
third. The defendants were W. A. (lark
and J, K. (lark, owners of thc Bluckrock.
The two claims adjoint, the south side
line of the Niagara being also the north
side line of the Hlnekrock. The apex of
the vein in controversy posses through
the west end line of the lllackrock and
crosses the common side line 513 feet
westerly from the east end line of thc
Blaokrock and continues across the Niagara, passing out of the east end line
thereof. The vein dipped to the south.
It was alleged that the owners of the
Bluckrock hud extracted ore from that
vein on its dip at a point under the apex
which was on the Niagara, and plaintiffs
were given judgment for $27,2-1.40, the
alleged amount of ore extracted. A motion for a new trial was denied and iu
November, 1805, the supreme court of
Montana affirmed the judgment of the
lower court in denying a new trial. Tlie
case was then taken to the supreme court,
and some time ago arguments were heard]
J. W. Forbis appeal ing for the plaintiffs
and Governor R. 11. Smith for the defendants. The decision of the district court,
in this case followed the principle laid
down in the King-Ainy-Silvcrsmith case,
holding that the Niagara owners were
entitled to an accounting against thc
Hlackrock for the ore taken Irom the
dip of the vein under the apex, which was
on Niagara ground and east of Uie point
where the apex passed wholly within the
Niagara premises. This case ditrered
from the Amy-Silversmith in this: In
the Amy-Silversmith Ihe vein passed
through two side lines, crossing the location diagonally. In thc Hlackroek-Nia-
guru case the apex --asses through nn end
line and u side line. The amount of the
judgments with interest to date is over

Pros)k'i tors lnive recently staked out a
large amount of placer ground on the
bar between Itoulder and Gold Creeks, in
the Priest lake district of Idaho, lt is
claimed hy the parties who did the work
that they were employed by u syndicate
of Spokane mid eastern capitalists, it i<*
snid that the syndicate will put in a large
hydraulic plant. They will take the
water from llouldei creek, where a good

There can be little doubt of the success
of the enterprise if properly conducted _I
gold can be found in many places in this
bur. In sonic places it has ls-en fonnd in
sufficient quantity to warrant working
with sluices in u small way. Work of this
nuture will probably be done on Gold
creek this seusoti. Considerable course
gold has lieen taken out of Cold creek
in the immediate vicinity of the fulls.
Claims were staked on Cold creek many
years ago when Idaho was a territory. No
one here nows who the early prospectors
were hut there are indications thut they
met with encouraging results.
On Monnt C'hapacca.
At thc Golden Zone on Mount Cha-
pacca, in Okanogan county. Washington,
work is stendHy progressing on the tunnel which has penetrated the mountain
over 400 feet, giving a vertical depth of
000 feet, the greatest depth in Okanogan.
The present workings disclose six feet of
beautiful high grade honey combed white
quartz, absolutely free milling, much of
it showing free gold to the nuked eye.
It hns been estimated that 85 per cent of
the values can lie saved on the tallies.
The work done has developed a initio of
great value. Manager Kingsbury has
shippe quantities of ore to Friiner, Chalmers and others for mill tests and states
that a complete milling plant with a daily
capacity of 35 to 40 tons, with free van-
ners, will lie ordered shipped to Johnson
creek during high water in the Okanogan
river, and will lie set in position and running early tlie coming fall.
The company also has several desirable
mill sites ond a valuable water right with
a fall of 200 feet to furnish power for the
new plant.

Mica Mine Near Kendrlck.
A most important discovery hns been
made on Cedar creek, near Kendrick, Idaho, hy II. L. Patterson of a tine ledge
containing some of the liest mica yet
found in this section. A number of bodies
of mica have been developed in this section of  Idaho with  but  poor result, as
most of them were scattering and not of
sufficient size to warrant working. Mr.
Patterson has opened up 10 feet and secured sheets from four to six inches
square, and has returns from samples sent
out that Indicate ihat the quality is excellent.

the placing of a switch from thc main
track of the Columbia & Western to the
Monte Cristo mine. Thc result is that
the survey of the spur will be made, and
Immediately thereafter the work of con*

Thr Coniniodore States That He

Annuuneenient of the Faet  Maile.
Washington, May 30.—At 12s80 o'clock
this I.Monday) morning the navy depart
ment received a dispatch from Commodore Schley announcing deliniteiy that he
had limited Admiral Cervera's Cape Verde
squadron in the buy of Santiago de Cuba.
The commodore states that he himself
had recognised the vessels of the Spanish
While naval officials have been moderately certain for several days that Cervera's squadron was in the harbor of Ban-
tiago, the official announcement fiom
Commodore Nclilcy was received by the officers on duty at the department with Intense satisfaction. A**urunec is now
doubly sure thut the S|>anish fleet, is bottled up and the cork is in the bottle. It
is not believed that Cervera will attempt
to escape from the predicament in which
he now finds himself, us such a COOrse
would surely result in the destruction of
his vessel* und the loss of many lives
precious to Spain. The suggestion is
made, however, that thc S|iuniiirds may
blow up the ships rather than have them
fall into the hands of Schley, as they cer-
t-ainly will if they remain in the harbor.
The detinitcness of OuBUnodom Schley's
dis-iatch would seem to indicate that he
has effected a lauding near Sintiiigo anil
made u persons] investigation of the harbor, li would In- impossible, from ihe entrance of thc bov, definitely to see and
recognUe tha Spanish vessels, but by effecting a landing at some point on either
aide of the entrance a vantage point could
be gained from which the entire harbor,
it is believed, could he examined. In all
! probability Commodore Schley or one of
his trusted officers litis succeeded in per-
l'oiiniiig this hazardous undertaking in
ordci to obtain the valuable information
contained in his dispatch.
it is impossible, owing to the lateness of
the hour, to obtain uny official expression
upon the news from Commodore Schley.
What effect the certainty that Cervera is
practically helpless will have on the plans
of the naval station with reference to the
invasion of Culm can only be conjectured.
The transportation of Innd forces to the
bland, it is thought, was delayed because
of uncertainty concerning the Ideation of
the Spanish squadron. If Unit understanding is correct, the probability of an
early invasion of Ouba is strong. It is not
unlikely thut the movement of troops,
which bus been delayed from time to
time, will liegin this week, and that before the end of the week the United States
forces will have obtained a substantial
foothold upon Cuban soil.

Official advices received tonight from
('i indole Schley contain no information such as is reported from Madrid, nl
though it is known that they were written after the battle was said to have occurred. The advices from Commodore
Schley indicate that he is now on station for several days guarding the entrance to the buy of Santiago tie Cuba.
Commodore Behley has not only his own
Squadron; l>ut two or three vessels besides
at his command, und it is not believed to
be possible for the Spanish admiral to es-
Cape with his licet.
No information is obtainable as to thc
intentions of Commodore Schley. Whether he will endeavor to force an entrance
to the buy and seek a battle with the
Spanish squndron is not known, but such
a course ut present is not regarded as
likely. It would he better, in the opinion of some naval officials to keep Cervera and his vessels safely in the har-
bor, where they are as absolutely useless
as they would lie at the bottom of thc

Captain Urldler Sick and Ordered
Washington, May 28.--Tlie navy department Huh afternoon made public the
following dispatch:
"Cavite, May 24, via Hong Kong, May
20.—To the Secretary of the Navy, Wiiali-
ington: Mo change in the situation. The
blockade la cffeoUva. lt is impossible for
the people of Manila to buy any provisions except rice. The captain of the
Olympia (Gridley) has been condemned

Commander Uimberton is appointed commander of the Olympia. Dewey."
In  Desperate  Straits.
New York, May 28.—A dispatch to tlie
World from Manila via Hong Kong says:
The sit nut inn of the besiegod inhabitants
of Manila is growing more and more desperate, owing to tho eutting off of supplies. The blockade by Dewey's squadron is complete, while the insurgents have
surrounded the city on the land side, thus
cfloetually closing the phiOe in.
Dewey has deferred further aggressive
action at this point until the arrival of
the cruiser Charleston with coal and ammunition, and of thc promised troops for
military occupation of the islands.
Powers Have Agreed.
Berlin, May 28.—An article in the Post
"It is declared semiofficially that the
recent rumors as to the transfer of the
I'hilippine islands to France or to Germany or to their partition among the
European powers with interests in the far
east have no foundation whatever. America is not yet in possession, it is true,
and it is quite possible that she may not
ever occupy them. Hut any laying of
hands on the islands at present would
lie a hostile act against America, nor
would it be tolerated by the other European powers having interests there."
This utterance may be taken as explicit
proof that the continental powers have
come to an agreement on the subject to
await further action by America.

Battleships     Motionless     Under     n
Tropical  Snn.
On Hoard the Associated Press Dispatch
Boat Wanda, Key West, Muy 211. -Sunday, with the fleet waiting, watching in
silent, sunlit seas, a group of great battleships motionless under the tropical sun,
broad decks, scorched und seared by day,
languid and dreamy under the stars by
night, a fleet of powerful sea fighters, an
Army of brave men drifting at sea waiting for something to do—that tells the
story of Rear Admiral Sampson's fleet for
many days and nights. The ships of the
tleet si.nul elose together in small groups.
Hour after hour passes and the position
is not changed. -rent volumes of smoke
occasionally issue from thc funnels and
curl unswayed by the wind into the sky.
The men drag impatiently through the
drills and ciawl impatiently away into the
shaded nooks of the decks and grumble
nt the inactivity. During tlie day the
music on hoard swells far out over the
silent water, and at night voices are plainly heard from ship to ship. Stretching
away to the sea line the sky is gleaming
nnd motionless and one con scarcely imagine it the same sea that has been tumbling
for weeks post, lt is a picture of tropical languor.
Method   In   Inactivity.
But there is method in Sampson's inactivity. Until he is definitely advised that
the Spanish fleet is imprisoned iu Santiago
de Cuba harbor he is here in a position to
move quickly in any direction where the
Swinish ships may appear. If the Spaniards should escape Schley and make for
eastern seaports of the United States he
is in a position in a few hours run to cut
them off in the Windward passage. One
or more scout boats are kept in that position constantly. On the other hand if
the Spaniards should come around the
western end of Cuba with the hope of getting into Havana he In here where he can
intercept them on short notice. It is
irksome to wait here day after day.
A most vigilant watch is kept by the
fleet day and night in hope that the Spanish fleet may come in sight. The Bailors
hang over the rails scanning the horizon
and the gunners lie in the shadow of the
big rifles, longing for a chance to sec the
monsters thundering.
Gen.    Shatter's    Kea-alara    and    the
■lest Volunteer Regiment- Will tio.
New York, May 29.—A special dispatch
to the Tribune from Washintgon says:
Orders have at last gone forward to
Major lieneral Shafter at Tampa to embark the greater portion of his corps, including all the regular! and a few of the
most efficient volunteer regiments on
board Ihe transports gathered at that
place and the aggressive military movement which has been so frequently predicted and so often delayed for one cause
or another is an accomplished fact before
the end of this week. The strongest units
of Admiral Sampson's reorganized squadron will convoy the expedition and cover
its landing nt a point now definitely designated.
Simultaneously the most rigid censorship of press dispatehes that has so far
been undertaken by the government will
be put into operation at Tampa and Key
West tonight and no message relating to
the movements of troops or slni*-, or in
any way speculating upon the expedition
will lie permitted on the wires. If this
means of preventing publication of information which would lie exceedingly valuable to Spain is not wholly sue. cssful, the
censorship will lie promptly extended to
the mails. It can be confidently asserted
that lieyond the secretary of war and secretary of the navy, the president will permit no civilian to enjoy his confidence in
this matter until a landing on the foreign
territory shall have been actually accomplished and General Shafter himself will
have sealed orders, whose contents will be
know n only to General Miles and Genera]
Corbin, until the expedition is safely at
sea. Admiral Sampson's sole instruction
was to guard the expedition and to cooperate with General Shafter under thc
lattrr's direction.
Population  UlscouraKed  and Wnnts
Port An Trince, May 20.—Two Italians
who set out from Santiago do Cuba in a
small boat on May 19. landed near Mole
St. Nicholas on the 22d, arriving here today, bringing Information n-s to the situation at Santiago. The state of affairs
there is critical particularly so because ot
the lack of food. A great many of the
unfortunate people, especially the rceon-
centrados, are dying of starvation. The
whole population is terribly discouraged
and keenly desirous of peace.
Thc arrival of the squadron under Cervera without fixid supplies for the city
deepened the general despondency. The
squadron has disembarked 800 men, artillerymen and engineers and landed 20,000
Mauser rifles, a great quantity of ammunition and four big guns destined for
the fortifications. In spite of the strict
silence maintained by the officers and
crews, the general impression was when
the Italians left, that the squadron would
set sail for San Juan, Puerto Rico, to obtain supplies and land ammunition there.

Bills for KiUi-i_ Criminals Formerly
Paid  In  Holland.
Edam, In Holland, where tlie Dutch
cheese conies from, lias Just opened a
museum of local antii'iiltics. nnd
among the uot least Interesting of the
exhibits are the accounts of the municipal executioners during the eighteenth century, One of these functionaries, by name Vogel, presents n totalled bill, dated Dee. IU. 1713, lu wl <eh he
sets forth a claim for 0 florins In- onu
dccupltntlou ami 3 florins each for a
sword and winding sheet, with :. florins 14 cents for u cofllu for the decapitated one. ills charge for hauglug a
crlmlunl was also ti florins, with the
further addition of 3 florlus for "cutting down aud impaling ditto." "Breaking a man on the wheel" was a costlier
luxury and run to !• florins, while for
supplying "nine new lashes for
scourge" the charge was 27 florins.
Ou the whole, however, Mr. Vogel
wns a moderate man lu his charges of
the value of human life weut up n good
deal In the next fifty years, for lu the
no less circumstantial accounts of
Johannes Ka, preaented Aug. 1. 1704,
we have a charge of 12 florins for "go-
lug on board the Haus aud preparing
Instruments of torture," with a like
charge for "torturlug one person." But
this must have been for the "lesser torture" only, ax on Aug. 30 the same Johannes sends In n bill for "torturing
three persons ut 7.ri florins n head"- -
total. 225 florins, while a few days later
no less thnn tMHJ florins Is charged for
"hanging four persons at 150 florins
each," nnd for "flogging two persons
and burning a third" he exacts ISO florins. Clearly considerations of economy.

The Time Niagara Dried Up.
It seems almost incredible thnt at one
time In Its history the greatest aud
most wonderful waterfall lu the world
actually run dry. Nevertheless, It Is
an established fact that this occurred
ou Mnrch 20, 184S, and for n few hours
scarcely any water passed over Niagara Falls. The winter of thnt year hnd
been an exceptionally severe oue. and
Ice of unusual thickness had formed on
ljiike Erie. The warm spring rains
loosened this congealed mass, nnd on
the day In quest ion a brisk east wind
drove the loe far up Into the lake.
About sunset the wind suddenly veered
round and blew a heavy gale from the
west. This naturally turned the ice lu
Its course, nnd, 1.ringing It down to the
mouth of Hit* Niagara Klver. piled It up
in a solid. Impenetrable wall.
So closely was It packed and so great
was Its force that lu u short Unit* the
jutlet to the lake was completely
•linked up. and little or no water could
poutbly escape. Ill a very short space
it time the water below this frozen
barrier [Missed over the falls, and the
uext morning the people living In the
neighborhood were treilted to a most
extraordinary spectacle. The roaring,
tumbling rapids above the falls were
almost obliterated, it ml nothing but
the cold, black rocks were visible in all
directions. Thc news quickly spread,
and crowds of spectators flocked lo
view the scene, the banks on each side
of the river being UiiihI With people
during the whole day. At last there
wus a break lu the Ice. It was released
from Its restraint, the pent-up wall of
water rushed downward, aud Niagara
was Itself again.
The Prince of Walts' Dinner Table.
Good taste reigns over all the ar
raugeineiits. Thus, the tablecloths are
severely plain, though oif the finest
quality, and simply worked with the
royul arms—the rose, the thistle aud
the shamrock—while the table napkins
are Invariably folded Into a small
square to bold the bread, and never In
the fancy shapes in vogue elsewhere.
To each guest two forks, aud uo more,
are provided, and these are placed
proBgadownward. In addition there are
one large tablespoon nnd one large
knife, for In uo circumstances are two
knives together given to any guest. A
grent many reasons have beeu assigned for this rule, but apparently uo
one has summoned up the courage to
ask the royal host and hostess. It has
been asserted that Ids royal highness
has the old-fashioned dislike to seeing
knives Inadvertently crossed. Small
water bottles arc used, but the princess
holds to the Hanoverian habit of never
having flnger bowls. At Marlborough
House dinner begins at 8:45. and Is
never allowed to last much more than
an hour. Occasionally during dinner
soft music Is played. The menu Is iil-
ways served a In Russe- that Is to say,
nothing Is carved lu the dining rooui.-

These gentlemen are both well known
through the Riding as good men, each
capable of ably representing thia constituency.   But Mr. Rotallack if elected would go to Viotoria as au avowed

Some of the wildcat   stock manipulators are deploring the  American-
Spanish war, saying that   speculation
in mining stocks has greatly fallen off,
and laying tbe  blame to  the  present
war.   We beWve that the main cause
of this falling off is due, not   to  the
war, but to the fact that the public are
begining to realize the situation   and
.that the wildcat stock boom is busted.
There are good mining stocks   on   ths
niarket, but for every share of legitimate stock, backed  by   a  legitimate
mining   proposition,   there   are   five
hundred wildcats.   Claims hate  been
stocked for over one  million  dollars,
without there being fifty dollars worth
of work done on   them    and    which
would not bring, if offered for sale tn
any mining man, a hundred dollar bill.
These stocks havo been offered for sale
to the publio atd mostly through misrepresentation a large amount of these
worthless papers have been  diaposed
of   It ia sbch  things   al these   that
bring discredit on the mining business.
A certain class of mining sharks follow
up mining booms and make a business
of stocking   any    worthless prospect
they can get hold of,    If it lies in the
vicinity  of a g -od property, the bigger
the splurge   and  swindle   they     will
make.    They are sharks,   holdinn  out
golden promises, tempting some   poor
clerk to rob his sibployer and. pocketing the hard earnings of   the   gullible
servant girl.    All mining booms of late
years   have  been   cursed    by   their
presence, Creed, La Hell, Cripple Creek,
Castle,   Reservation    and   Rossland,
in  fact wherever a boom  has sprung
up.    So if the war has anything to  do
with driving them to the wall, let the
war go on.   It will do that much good
any wav..   The war will havo little or
no effect on thc legoti mate mining man
who honestly endeavoUres to work tho
mines and not thc  public.
There is no doubt but that  Robert
F. Green will be returned at thc polls,
aa the first member to   represent  the
Slocan Riding at the next Parliament
to be convened at Victoria.     He  will
not only be elected but elected by sucb
an overwhelming    msjority  tbat   the
name,of his   opposing  candidate  will
never be heard again as a candidate of
any party in  the future.     Any man
with political aspirations will oulf be
committing political suicide in putting
himself up sgainst so strong an opponent   as he will find Mr.   Green to be
Robert F. Green, of Kulo, endorsed
■4 backed as he is, by practically all
the leading business men, both merchants   and    miners,   has   his    success
assured.    Over all the candidates, big
and little, possible and   impossible, he
towers so far, that to i lass them in the
same class is to be doing  an   injustice
to    Mr.  Green.    Coming   into   this,
tbe Slocan country,   with   but small
means, though with an  abundance of
pluck, energy and brains, he has identified himself   with  the country and
practically grew up with it.    It is to
his own unaided efforts that he holds
the place among us that he does.    His
whole interests, business and political,
aro wntered in this,  the Slocan. .He
Is the most fitting man   to represent
this Riding in Parliament, knowing as
he does what is needed, being familiar
with the   wants   of the district  as a
whole, from Kaslo to Slooan City, and
having tbe brains, push and influence
to get it for us.    He is bf us, fqr us,
and with us in any and  every   thing
that will be for the advancement and
benefit of the Slocan Riding  and  the
Province of British Columbia.
