Washington, July 13.���The impression prevailed in official circles when
public, business closed for the day that
the lia;,' of truce set in the Spanish
lines at Santiago tit 2 o'clock yesterday was still flying, and that the
negotiations continued looking to a
surrender. Tbo basis for these negotiations naturally was uot considered
to be very broad in view of the
injunction the president laid upon
General Shafter to accept nothing
less than an unconditional surrender,
but it is supposed that time may be
consumed through the indulgences of
General Shafter in allowing the
Spanish commander to communicate
by cable with General Blanco in the
'vfFort to obtain bis ass, nt to a surrender.
It is not generally known that iu response to the manly and pathetic report sent by cable to Blanco announcing the loss of bis squadron, Cervera
received a most harsh and uusmypa-
thotio reply, bul such is the case.
Blanco's   purpose   iu    Ibis   nitty   have
been to dissuade other Spanish commanders, military and naval, from
surrendering under any conditions.
In the eyes of Toral it* appears that he
has made a strong impression, nevertheless there is confidence in the speedy
fall of Santiago, though many ollicers
fear that the nest will be found empty
and the birds flown when the American troops make their entry into the
town. Even if should this be the
caso it may bc, fairly claimed that
the prime object of the movement on
Santiago, namely the destruction of
the Spanish squadron, has been
achieved and the campaign as a whole
successful.
General Miles today indicated that
ho hud found unexpected physical
difficulties tn contend with, and he is
apparently greatly pleased with the
progress made by thc army under the
prevailing conditions. He has not
assumed the command   as is shown by
his message, The most important
result of the cabinet deliberations
today vas the order to remove the
mines whieh guard all the coast ports.
Many men were opposed to yielding
to tho pressure of thc commercial
intt rests and some of them are predicting that uot a few of the communities
who have heen so earnest in their
demands for the removal of the mines
will bo clamoring for protection at the
very first rumor of the presence of a
hostile gunboat or cruiser off tbeir
coast.
Before the war began the government accumulated a large quantity of
coal at St. Thomas, West Indies, most
of it wtis ashore, but JOOO tons were
on ti schooner lying in the harbor.
Twice since war broke out the United
Slates has availed herself of this coal.
It was assumed that there bad been no
breach of neutrality. However it now
appears that there is now a disposition
on the part of the Danish authorities
lo iivevenl the United States from
using the coal and as there is no
question as to tbeir right to lay down
Iheir   own   rules,    lhe eoal 'itself will
probably be   left   alone.   Fortunately
there is no particular need for it.

SUPEEMB COURT DECISIONS.
The Full Court Gives Judgment on
Several   Important   Appeals.
Victoria, July 112.���This [afternoon
judgments were delivered by tho full
courl in several eases argued at tho
last* session. In Morryweathor vs.
Aspinwtill the appeal from the judgment of Mr, Justice McColl, given iu
favor of the plaintiff, was dismissed,
the court holding that a mere irregularity when challenged by another
claimant shall not prevail to destroy
an otherwise good mineral claini.
In Eves vs .Genelle the plaintiff's
appeal was allowed with costs. The
action was for damages for malicious
proseoution, ancl at the trial iho jury
found a verdict in favor of the plaintiff for fl000,but the judge after hearing
the arguments entered judgment in
favor of the defendant. The jury
found that the defendant did nol
honestly believe in the ease he bud
before the magistrate and that* be was
actuated by malice. The appeal was
allowed.
In the Golden Cute vs. tlie Golden
Creek Mining company, the appeal of
the defendants was dismissed.
SANTIAGO   SURRENDERED.
Rome, July 12.���The Trihuna of this
city publishes an undated Kingston,
Jamaica, despatch received at (i :'*.'() p.
in. today affirming that the city of
Santiago de Cuba has capitulated.
Before Santiago do Cuba, July li,
Via Port Antonio and Kingston, Jamaica, July 12, 11 P. M.���When the firo
opened from the American lines after
the conclusion of the armistice, the
Americans were in a much better
position. Capron's and Hines' batteries were posted on tho heights on
the left of the line and ln the rear of
Best's line. The Hotcbkiss galling
and dynamite guns occupied a crest
on the right center,and ou the extreme
right Best's and Grimes'batteries wore
posted in tho center of Lawton's division The American right* was strengthened by a brigade of Kent's division
tho Sixth and Sixteenth regulars and
tho Seventy' first New York, which
was pushed to the westward until
with Gorcia's line il formed an arc
reaching within a quarter ot a mile
of Camera which skirts the bay and
Ihe forts. The only road by which
Goneral Toral could escape was this
commanded. Small detached bodies
of Spaniards bave been observed skipping out of town westward early in the
morning, including one squadron of
cavalry.
A movement was made to cut off
their retreat and a laud bombardment
began. A shot from Crimes' battery
was followed by one of ('apron's guns
on the left and in the right center the
gatling and Hotcbkiss batteries opened
(ire. For the first tou minutes the
firing was quite general. The Spaniards replying spiritedly, but the rifle
firo on both sides soon waned and
from ."i o'clock to 6:80,when the aetiou
ceased, the fighting was confined exclusively to the artillery. The American batteries soon got the range and
poured shells into the Spanish entrenchments, cutting down the. brush
shelters as with a scythe. The Spanish
were soon forced to vacate the bock
houses.
A Spanish battery on the left of tho
town was engaged by Capron's batery
on the right and firetFspiritedly until a
gun cot ton shell from Wood's dynamite
gun exploded directly in front of it,
tearing up two trees and dismounting
a gun. It was the last shot of the
afternoon and was greeted with cheers.
Two meu in Kent's division were
killed by a shell and several were
wounded.
A Spanish deserter came into the
American lines this afternoon for food.
He said: "Thc Spaniards are as good
fighters as the Americans and if wo
had food and cigarettes in abundance
we would fight forever. "
General Kent recommends the following officers of his division for gallantry under fire : Major Sharp, Major
Phil Reado, Captain McAlcxandcr,
Lieutenant Cartwrighf, Lieutenant
Johnson and Volunteer Aide do Camp
Monroe, who was wounded and will
be recommended for a commission.
Before Santiago, Via Playa del Est
July l'.'.���This morning General Toral
sent out a ftply to General Shufter's
second demand for the unconditional
surrender of Santiago, made by letter
yesterday afternoon, In his reply
General Toral referred to bis former
refusal and again reiterated bis determination to resist. Notwithstanding
this the American batteries did not
open fire this morning and the renewal
of the bombardment will probably be
postponed until tomorrow, Wednesday',
when it is hoped that all of General
Randolph's batteries will be in position. The siege gnus lauded yesterday
and    will   bo   brought   up as  soon as
I possible.
Yesterday the Capron and Hines
batteries on the   right   started in tear*
j ing the evening's emplacements for a
"palm " battery, as it is called, but
the shots directed at the Spaniards
did not appear to bavo much effect.
Shrapnel was rapidly   broken over the
trenches, yet in five minutes the
trenches at every point of explosion
would be alive with the enemy.
Tbey would watch for the flash of our
guns and drop before tbe shells exploded.
Tbo American mortar fire was
directed at the Spanish bull ring and
tore up about everything in the vicinity. It is understood that the bull
ring is being used as a barracks.
CAPT. FULATE   INTERVIEWED.
It  Was    the  terrible   Fire    of    the
Brooklyn Stopped the Spaniards.
Santiago de Cuba, July 6, Via Charles
ton, South Carolina, July 12.���Through
Lieutenant of Marines Thomas S.
Borden,who conversed in French with
tho prisoners an interview was obtained for the Associated Press with
Captain Filiate of the Spanish cruiser
Vizcaya.    He said:
"The entire squadron was ordered
to devote the fire of the guns to the
cruiser Jjauklyn, because it was
believed^^i the only ship the iu American S-flPron that could overtake us.
When we got out of tbe harbor my
ship was the second in the line and I
saw that- the flagship Miara Teresa
was getting a terrible baptism of fire.
It was frightful. The Texas and
Brooklyn were riddling her and iu
16 minutes I saw she was on fire.
Tho Iowa and Oregon were fighting
the Oquendo, and as yet* I had not been
badly hit. The Brooklyn was a half
mile closer to us thau any other of the
ships and I desired to try and ram her
so that the Colon and Oauendo could
get away. I started for her. She was a
good mark with her big broad side, and
as I started I thought surely I would
put her out. She bad evidently seen
us and very quickly she turned about
and making a short circle came at our
port side to that I thought sbe would
ram us. I moved in toward tbe shore
so that I could avoid her and then I
saw that the Oquendo bad gone ashore,
her steam pipes evidently having
been severed by a shell.
"Tho manoevre of the Brooklyn was
beautiful. We opened a rapid fire at
her with all our big guns but she returned it with terrible effect. The Oregon also hit us, but the Brooklyn's
broadside crashing into our superstructure simply terrorized tbe men. We
worked all our guns at her at one time
and I don't see how she escaped us.
She simply drove us into the shore at
oue time, fighting us at 1100 yards.
One shell went aloug the entire gun
deck killing half of the men on it,
and wounding nearly all. A shell
form tho Oregon hit us and I was then
wounded, and knowing we could
not get away, I struck the flag and
started for the beach.
"I did not instruct the meu to load
the guns at all and I don't know why
they were loaded. Wo were ou fire
badly, and when those men who wero
alive started to swim for shore, the
Cubans on shore shot at us until the
American ships arrived and stopped
them. The Brooklyn had prevented
me from getting away, for I could
have beaten tlio Oregon out, as I had
a two mile lead of her. My orders weie
to try to sink the Brooklyn and I tried
to earry them out. I did not think
that her battery could be so terrible
as it was.''
INTERRN ATION AL   CHESS.
Vienna, July 12.���This morning
the chess players began tho twenty-
ninth round of the international chess

Wahlbrodt and Maroczy, Alapin and
Steinitz,Tarrasch and Marco, Schiffers
and Schlechter, Jauowski and Schowalter. Pillsbury and Blackburne,

recorded:
Baird lost to Lipke, and Alapin lost
to Steinitz. Tarrasch beat Marco, Schiffers aud Schlechter drew. Pillsbury
beat Blackburne. The otber games
were adjourned all in even positions.
GERMANY AND SAMOA.
Berlin, July. 12.���The Vossisebe
Zeitung forsee'ing that after the annexation of Hawaii it* is "possible that
the United States may attempt to acquire the Samoan Islands also, says :
"America has practically no rights
in Samoa, and Germany's voice must
rank before America's in the future
fate of the islands. Germany will
therefore take care that her interests
arc protected in the  final settlement. "

Siboney, July 11, T. P. M., Via
Kingston, Jamaica, July 12, 11:30 A.
M.���A concerted movement has been
made by the United States army and
navy against the city of Santiago de
Cuba during the past 24 hours, whioh
the American offlcors bere believe will
result in the almost immediate fall
of the city. Tho fleet* lying off Agua-
dores, three miles from Morro Castle,
commenced tbe bombardment of Sun-
tiugo on Sunday afternoon, and continued it this morning. Notwithstanding the fact that the American ships
had to fire at an extreme elevation,
and although the range was nearly
five miles, the aim was so accurate
that many shells fell into the city,
and set fire to it ill several places.
One shell struck St. Michael's church
i n wheh was a quantity of powder
and  ammuntion and blew it to pieces.
During the bombardment from tho
sea, tho army extended its lines and
drew in closer to the city, so that at
noon today every road and trail leading into the city was guarded and the
escape of the Spanish soldiers seemed
impossible. Tho only way they ean
get out of the eity is to ferry across
tho bay to tho western side of the harbor and oven then tb"y oould not get
into the interior without encountering
American troops.
During the time the warships were
bombarding Santiago this morning, the
batteries of artillery on the hills facing
thc city shelled the Spanish entrenchments and received but a light
response. Thc American sharpshooters
also sent iu a deadly fire, and tho
Spaniards are falling back to tbeir
last entrenchments, and are offering
but little resistance. The Americans
have suffered no loss.
Ia (.'amp Near Santiago do Cuba,
Monday , July 11, Via Port Antonio
aud Kingston, July 12.���Tbo laud
forces watched with interest the
bombardment by the fleet. About 8
o'clock the thunder of guns was heard
to seaward and tt dense cloud of
smoke rising over the ridge to tho
south showed that the navy was at
work. Many shells from the ships
burst* in the northeast part of the city,
wliich is difficult to see from the
American lines. It is impossible to
say what effect they had, several
burst in the center of the town with
great effect. One shell of whose action a good view was had from San
Juan bill burst in a small street.
When the atmosphere cleared it seemed
as if the entire street had boon blown
out of existence.
A large hole was torn in tbo ground
and many buildings were demolished,
if a hundred shells could be landed
with similar effect tbey would destroy
Santiago. The warships fired tor
onlv a short time.
THE LONDON   CONFERENCE.

The negotiations between the colonial

is hardly necessary to dilate upon tho
great advantages and profit that would

what* au incalculable boon tho introduction of ti new industry with

Calgary, a town that for several years

facilities, so that the machine shops
of that part of the line might bo

Wo do not wish to be understood by

CELEBRATING THK VICTORY.
Friends and Supporters ol' Mr. Hume
Havo a Torchlight Procession.
Tho friends and supporters uf J. Frod
lliiine celebrated his election on
Saturday last wiih a torchlight procos-
sou   last   nighi.     Tlie demonstration
was a great Bllccess and must hav
been sufficient evidence lo Mr. Hume
of his popularity in Nelson. About
8 :ilu o'clock tho procession started from
tite Humo hotel, headed by a carriage
containing the Nelson brass band, who
played lively airs as the crowd moved
along lhe streets. Following was
another carriage containing iln' moni-
ber elect, Messrs. 0. Hillyer, ii. S.
Taylor and J. McLellan, next came a
large number of electors bearing
torches, burning brooms, etc. The
rear was brought np wiib Piper J.
MoDonald, win playod stirring and
martittl Scottish airs.
As the procession passed llirough
lhe principal streets'] of ihe cily tlie
sidewalks were lined wil b spectators
ami al intervals eutlltisiastic cheers
were given for Mr. Hume and the
opposition parly.
On their return to the llun.e corner
Jlr. Hume made a short speech, ihauk-
ing those electors who had supported
him tind shown their confidence ;u
him. Tha! confidence he would endeavor to merit in the future. He had
no fault lo find with thosi who had
c mie out openly and worked against
hint, but in this i lection he had met
several who promised one way and
voted the other, lie believed in men
sticking to their principles and acting
according to iheir convictions openly
and above board. Thc opposition
party have an assured majority in
lhe house and British Columbia will
soon     have   au     honest   and   capable
government, who will see that justice
is thine to every district.
S.S. Taylor was then called foi' and
niade a short speech, congratulating
Mr. lliiine on his election and the
electors on Iheir great victory at the
polls. Now that the elections are over
he hoped that the hatchet would be
buried and that any hard feelings
engendered during the campaign would
now be allowed to subside. We should
remember that we all are citizens of
Nelson and should work harmoniously
together to advance her interests.
Cheers   were   ihen     given   for   Mr.
Hum" anil tho opposition party after
which the crowd dispersed. A number
of (he supporters of Mr. Farwell were
noticed in the crowd and although
Ihey took UO part in lhe demonstration
they showed by their looks ami manner ihat thoy aro not altogether dissatisfied with the result.

Thc adjourned mooting of the city
(iitncil was held yesterday afternoon
at whioh thoro wore present Mayer
Houston and Aldermen Hillyer,Teetzel,
Malone and Madden.
After nun ini-, 11 roporl was received
from the city e lgiuoer in regard to tho
soworago oxtensioii for the ye.irl808
and l'i'ciinimi'iiiliii;; whoro the work
should be done.
A letter was loaeived from W. I'.
Robinson complaining that the notices
issued by the city regarding the removal of buildings from streets and
alloys in (he city aro not being complied with, It was decided that all
parties who have not yot complied with
thu notices benotilied to romove their
buildings from the streots forthwith.
A letter was received from A. W.
Ross, secretary of tho British Columbia Firo Underwriters' Association in
regard to insurance rates, lu his letter
Mr. Ross mado tho following observations :
"Tho legislation which you have
elite]* d again it the further erection
of frame buildings within what is
rocognizod as tho flro limit and the
abolitiou of stovo pipes within tho
limits of the corporation ivo regard as
highly commendable.
������ [ would suggest thai the main leading from tho n sorvoii be placed ou
perninnont supports. You.'.' fire department has uot yet arrived at lhat
state of efficiency which would demand our most favorable consideration; its initial stages, however, wo
highly prize, aurl irom information
received, I boliovo your ambitions are
io perfect the system. I would therefore mako the following recommendations :
First���"A fire alarm system is
urgently noodod and I wouid suggest
that the Gamewell system of eight
boxes be procured, it being of universal uso, and recognized by tho association as perfect.
"Second���I would suggo.il also that
ti chemical flro engine be allied to your
equippmeut; its valuo would be
almost incalculable
"Third���I observe that at lhe present lime your tire chief occupies a
dual position and is the only fully paid
servant in the department, and is not*
required to remain in the flro hall
during his hours of duty. This condition of affairs has the effect at once
of crippling the value of your present
department audi would urgently recommend that some one should constantly remain in the hall to attend to
alarms givou by telephone or otherwise. "
Tic communication from Mr. Ross
was received and fllod. A letter was
also received from ihe secretary oi'
the South Kootenay Board of Trade
containing the resolution passed at a
special meeting of the council of Ihe
board and which was published in
tiie Daily Miner.
The chief of lie lire brigade wrote
to tin'council regiu'dmg the flro apparatus en hand tind recommending
that I wo hydrants bo placed on Victoria street ami also that a flro station
bo established on Addition A,
A leiter was received from innes
& Richards, owners of Addition .\,
stating lhal 1 ley were willing to givo
one lot for a tire station. The maycr
and the chief of the Are department
were authorized to select tho site.
Judge i'ni'in wrote to the council
stating tint their excellencies, Lord
and Lady Abt rdeen, will arrive in
Nelson on the night of July 30, and
the mayor was authorized to call tt
public meeting to arrange for a titling
reception.
The  following   lettor   regarding  a
street railway   franchise wa:: received:
Xelson, B. (,'., July 11,1808.
To the Oity Olerk, Nelson, B. 0.
Dear Sir:���I would be obliged if you
would lay before the council at iheir
meeting tonight the following proposal :
The"British Electric Traction Oo.,"
Donuiugtou House Temple, London,
;;. ('.. are desirous of extending their
operations to this country, tind as
Nelson now appears to be in a good
position io become large enough to
support a street railway line, I have
deemed it wise In apply to your council for a franchise which would be an
inducement to that company I o build
several miles without delay.
I quite understand thai there would
be n loss in operations for the lirst two
or possibly three years, but wo have
considered this, and aro prepared to
assume it.
The franchise would require fo be
of such duration as would be an inducement to expend the large sum that
woul d be neceassary iu this experiment; and I suggest to your council
that the time be not less than thirty
years.
The powers of building would be the
usual ones I presume; we would be
willing to take upon ourselves to lay a
track of rail of sufficient width to
meet the kind of paving which your
council have in mind, at the moment.
No obstruction to easy passage and
crossing of these rails would be found
by teams of horses" drawing heavy
loads nor by those with light vehicles.
It would require to be a part of the
undertaking as from our part of the
agreement, that should your city
desire to lake over the lines and run
them, that* we should be paid the
value of the plant* and the business as
a going concern, and that such value
should he based on an average of
years, of say six, three of these years
to count back, and three forward; to
enable us to get at prospective profits,
and in that way arrive at a fair estimate, of its   value as a going concern.
I would esteem it   a favor if I could
have a communication from your council tomorrow, as    I am leaving on the
following morning for London.
Yours Truly,
C. S. DRUMMOND.
The eity clerk was instructed to
nolify;'Mr. Driimmond from the city
council that a franchise to construct
and operate an electric street railway
iiiNelsonwill be given as soon as terms
are agreed upon and thai the council
will impose no unusual restrictions.
It was decided that the work of excavating for water mains be done by
day labor and the city engineer was
instructed to report as to the cost compared with contract work .
Council then adjourned,
