eral Wilson May Oet the Blaine.
Havana, Aug. 21.-It is asserted that
the arrest of General Juan Isidro Jiminez,
the aspirant to the presidency of Santo
Domingo, who was captured aboard a
steamer at Cienfuegos just as the steamer
was aliout leaving that *>oit, was not
caused by orders from Havana, but was
effected through the orders of General
James 11. Wilson, governor of the department of -tetanias and Batata Clara, immediately upon learning of the arrest,
Major General Brooke gave orders for the
release of the prisoner. The action of
(Ieneral Wilson in ordering the arrest of
Jiniine7. causes much comment. The present plans of Jlmim*- me unknown. Raving
missed tlie steamer on which he had taken
passage lie will probably return to Havana
Commenting on the arrest, Diario Ae Li
Marina says that the mayor and police at
Cienfuegos refused to cairy out the orders
given them for the apprehension of J inline/., as they claimed that to do so would
he. to violate the law of the country and
the arrest wiib made by a customs officer.
The Diario expresses the opinion that
the detention of Jiminez was the result of
a request made to the government at
Washington by President Rigucro of S.into
Domingo that the suspected filibusters be
prevented from leaving Cuba for Santo
Domingo until ufter the elections in the
republic had heen held.

The man then fired at the locksmith anil

A Syat.malic  Plan   for  Distributing
Washington, Aug. 21.—Secretary of
War Root made public a plan for systematically taking care of the supplies
distributed for the relief of the destitute
Puerto Rlcani It provides for a central
committee of representative citizens of tlie
country, to which all committees are to
report. This committee is to have charge
of distributing the supplies, which is to
be done in a manner to secure the best
results possible. The following persons
have been scleited by Mr. Root to form
thc committee: Cornelius N. Bliss, formerly secretary of the interior; Brigadier (Ieneral G. V. Homy, formerly military governor of Puerto Rico j Rt. Rev. James 11.
Bleiik, S. M., D. D., bishop of Puerto Rico,
now sojourning in this country; Hon.
Warner Van Norden, president of the
Bank of North America; W. L. Corwln.
secretary of the Merchants' Association of
New York Cily; the mayors of Boston,
New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore,
or such representatives as they may choose
to designate.
The work of distribution in Puerto Rico
will continue under the direction of <<0V'
ernor Oeneral Davis. The actual transportation of supplies will continue under
the direction of the quartermaster general's department.
One Hundred Thousand in Need.
The secretary if war made public the
following telegram from Governor General
"At least 10,500 tons of food should be
shipped weekly until further notice. Have
now fairly full reports from whale island.
Can not reduce lirst estimate of 100,0(10
to be fed or assisted. Am starting public
works as rapidly us possible, and h pe soon
to get large numbers on a self sustaining
basis. If local committees act without
concert duplication and waste would be
sure to result. Therefore I suggest a
central committee to regulate this and
would give assurance to contiihutora tliat
donations will be wisely handled.
■'.Send all clothing and medicines offered. Fully one-half beans and rice should
he shipped in sacks weighing 100 pounds
per sack, for it must get to the interior
on pack animals. The sacking material
will be useful for clothing.     DAVIS."

Olympia, Wash., Aug. 21.—It has leaked
out here that twice within the last few
months the officers of the First Washington volunteers have wired Governor Rogers asking the recall of Colonel Wholley.
When talked to some time ago regarding
Wholley, the governor said he had nothing
to do with the matter, as it was entirely
iu the hands ot the war department; that
while he had the appointment of Wholley
as colonel of the regiment, the department
only could recall or remove him from his
command. Notwithstanding this fact, it
is known that the ofllcers hold Governor
Hogers responsible on the grounds that he
should have preferred and fathered their
request to the war department.

fresh. The audience followed the depositions   with   comparatively   little  ililrcM,
a reference by At. Qribelin to the relations of Dreyfus with the dembmondalnes
proving the inosi appetising portion of

A subdued litter went round the cunt
room when (iribelin even professed to
know the exact amount Dreyfus spent
upon his various amours. Qribelin gave
his testimony with an honest demeanor

The Nelson Miner of the 25th., inst.
prints .i half coluuin article on the
Noonday mine 'of Silverton. The
whole article is an endeavor, by direct
lies and dirty underhand insinuations,
such as only a scab paper run by
hayseeds would resort to. to hurt the
value of the mine, and besmirch the
character an. business ability of the
management and also incidently discredit the Miners' Union of tlio Slocan.
The article, appearing as it does m a
paper that has earned the unenviable
reputation of being the most unreliable aiining paper in the Kootenays, is
hardly worth contradiction.
Why the Miner shpulc} go out o{ inroad to throw mud at its  sister towns
and try and besmirch the character of
men whose intregrity can  be  vouched
for by all our citizens who are   favored
by their   acquaintance,   can  only be
because it is the tonl of :i lot ot carpet -
bagging aliens who are trying to reduce
| the standard of Canadian  manhood to
I the level of that of  their own.    But
| Canadians miners are not to be influenced by such rot as (Iip Miner dishes
up to its unfortunate subscribers.
What one of our poets soys of
Canadian lulior to-day, will still bo
true long after our would-be aristocracy has left the country ami the
Miner is forgotten.
"Where none  nre  slaves,   that  lordly
May idle all Uie year;
For rank and cast am of the past—
They'll never flourish here!
Aud Jew or Turk if he'll out work,
Need never fear disaster;
He reaps the eiop he sowed in hope,
Fir Jack's as good's his master
Onr aristocracy ol toil
Have made us whnt yon sec—
The noliles of (lie forge and soil,
Willi ne'er  a peiHsjiee!
It makes one feel himself a man,
His very   blood leaps faster,
Where wit or worth's preferred lo birth,
And .luck's ai* good's his master!''

are calling upon the Lieutenant-Governor to dismiss his present advisers
and call upon a new man (no names
mentioned) to perform the impossible
feat of framing a cabinet out of the
Opposition material now on hand.
Joo Martin, Digging ar.d MePher-
son are Eight Hour supporters in the
Opposition now und Helgesou has
joined the same party with the view of
helping its repeal. Some Kootenay
members are credited with a desire lo
follow Joe Martin into the Dunsmuir
camp as allies. Could a worse muddle

A general election is necessary to
straighten out the tangle and without
doubt there will soon be one. This
being so, and there seems little doubt
of it, every voter should see that his

Gently sleeping on her bed,
Raven tresses round her bead,
Ruby exit cf her mouth.

Parting in an oval thin,
Showed thc ivory wall within.

George so near lo her .lid seem,
And a kiss fell on lur lip,
Not as lees do honey sip,
Not with sofi ami leathery touch,

ncws.it would boa kindness, that would
no doiil.t be appreciated b* the editor of i
improvements to their bunk-housis
etc. The gcod naturcd feeling that
has characterised this strike, still
prevails and will no doubt outlast tbo
strike many years. The miners who
have conducted themselves as gentlemen, acting entirely within their righls,
haye won the confidenee and respect
not only of the business men of the
Slocan but also of these same mine
managers, who, although the fight was
against them, could not but admire
thc manly upright fight that the
miners are waging to retain a fair
rate of wages in thc Slocan for themselves and fellow wage earners
throughout this section of our province.
With the amount of work now laid
out around our various mines, which
must bu completed before winter sets
in, (otherwise Dame Nature and not
the management will ploin the mines
and thu I cause a loss of a year's work
to the stockholders) it will puzzle the
mine owners to find .skilled labor
enough in the country to accomplish
it. The only **uHerers through the
present trouble have been th*1. business
men of the Slocan and lhe holders of
stock in Slocan mining pfopcrtitl. As
for the miner?, most of them have
been able to look upon the matter as a
huge joke gotten up for their benefit
When tired of being spectutors, the>
have shouldered their roll of blankets
and gone oft', going to work in some
other camp, where skilled lubor woh
gladly received and well paid. This
ib the inout regr-table feature of this
whole labor difficulty,—that then* is
being lost to British Columbia score**
of her best skilled miners -and no
class will realiz" this more than tho
mine managers when they attempt to
operate their minsi and are unable lo
do so lor the   lack   of   skilled   labor,
