The Daily Telegraph commenting
on the announcement says that it
means a second naval station for the
south Pacific.
Washington, July 0,���By comparison
with what has gone before today was
very quiet at tlm war and navy departments. There were bulletins posted in
the former iu the afternoon, hut they
were not of more recent dale than yesterday, ill .-ti concern is felt here tit

army ollicers seem to bo justilied in
avoiding the tremendous sacrifice of
life that would bo involved in again
throwing the American soldiers upon
thc Spanish defense until they have
been materially reinforced in numbers
and strengthened by artillery.
Sampson did not report today at the
navy department, bul the war department sent over n very agroeablo message from Shafter announcing the
readiness of the Spaniards to exchange
Hobson and his men.
It is believed that this was accomplished some time during the day,
though notice of it has not been received. The fact that several of the
vessels selected for Watson's fleet were
in the thick of the engagement of
July :i promises to somewhat delay the
departure of the eastern squadron for
the shores of Spain. The vessels have
consumed a good deal of coal, and
without doulit liave expended a large
quantity of their highest grade ammunition in the furious attack on the
steel warships of the Spanish, It
would be necessary to replenish the
stores before the long European voyage
is begun. However, Secretary Long
has given rush orders for the preparation of his squadron and it will certainly be off in the course of a few
days.
The movements of the Cadiz squadron ore very puzzling to the experts
here. Weakened as it is by sending
back the torpedo boat destroyers, the
Spanish squadron seems destined to go
to assured destruction, as did Cevera's
j unlucky ships when they headed westward from the Cape Verde islands.
The Spanish, without doubt, nre fully
aware of tho inferiority of their fleet.
The navy department was advised
today that the squadron was passing
through the Suez canal, and as the
vessels must have paid the heavy toll
required in advance, the indications
arc now regarded as conclusive that
i llie ships are actually hound for tho
Philippines. This belief stimulates the
preparations hero for Watson sailing
lb- will slrike straight lifter Camara,
who in the end is doomed to be caught
between Watson and Dewey,
The report thnl tho flue ship Yankee,
'lying at Tompkiiisville just back from
| Cuba, has yellow fever aboard caused a
great deal of worry at the department
! until Captain Brownson telegraphed
(luring the day thatj there was absolutely no fever on the ship, and that
she was not in quarantine.
Secretary Long regarded the report
that tho Alphonso XIII had been destroyed while trying to run the Havana
blockade as Ihe best news of Ihe day.
It has not conic to him in any direct
official way. but through a report from
General Greeley, who had received a
cipher message slating briefly that the
Spanish ship had been overliauied near
Marie], while trying to get through
the blockade, and was a total loss as a
result of   the fire upon her.    Botli   the
socrotnry and General Greeley regarded
the report as authentic, but thoro has
boon a desire to got more details as
this has beon something of a spectral
ship. Tbo Alphonso XIII is an iron
gunboat of 8800 tons. Her officers and
crew number 870.
Secretary Long is quite hopeful that-
several of the Spanish ships of the
Cervera squadron cau bo saved. Information has reached the department
that the hulls of the Cristobal Colon.
Vicayaand the Almirante Oquendo are
not badly damaged. Tbo contract with
the Merritt Wrecking company is by
the day and may be cancelled at any
time if tlie government finds the salvage, i.s not progressing satisfactorily.
Two large wrecking vessels left Norfolk today lo begin tho work of rescuing theso ships.
PRISONERS REVOLT.
Tho Spanish Soldiers  Who  Were Captured Revolt and Are  Fired On.
Washington, July (1.���A special despatch to the Evening Star, dated off
Santiago via Port Antonio, July li,
says:
After the destruction of the Spanish
fleet some 4a!) of the men on the Maria
Teresa were placed as prisoners on the
Harvard. For some reason not yet ascertained these mon mutinied. The
officers and crew of tho Harvard were
not unprepared, however, and the
mutinous men were tired on. Six
Spanish sailors were killed outright
and 12 were wounded. Tins taught
tho Spaniards a lesson and restored
quiet.

m.���About 50 of tbo -100 Spanish prisoners on board the i'nited States
auxiliary cruiser Harvard attempted
to escape last night. In some way a
numbor of them secured guns and then
mado a wild dash for liberty from the
steerage where they were confined.
Their rush was met by the deadly
bullets of guards, and six were killed
und lo wounded. The firing ended the
mutiny.    No Americans wero hurt.

Camp Siboney. Jaragua Province of
Santiago do Cuba, July 5, per Associated Press Despatch Boat Dauntless.���
General Young, commanding the First
brigade of the cavalry division, left
here al noon today for Key Wesl. in
bad health, on board the Cherokee.
The general has been suffering lately
from fever, and the doctor advised him
io leave. Brigadier General Duffleld
succeeds to his command.
General Young yesterday refused to
issue further rations to the Cubans
until advices aro received from Washington in answer to his expose of tbo
situation here. The Cubans refused to
assist in the hospital and commissary
departments, claiming the}- are soldiers and not laborers. Tho same
answer was given by thom to General
Baker when he asked them to help to
keep the roads open for transportation
of supplies to the front. This, together
with Garcia not preventing tho entrance into Santiago de Cuba of General Pando's reinforcements,has caused
discontent among tho Amerioan
officers and troops.
NOW THE TRUTH IS KNOWN.
Groat   Feeling   Against   the   Spanish
Government in  Madrid.
Madrid. July li.��� Tho authorities
kept the disaster to Admiral Cervera's
squadron a secret as long as possible
and even suppressed the extra editions
of the newspapers giving the facts.
Tho official confirmation, therefore,
caused a tremendous impression, particularly in naval and military circles,
where the government is accused of
ordering Admiral Cervera to mako a
sortie, despite the known opposition of
several naval experts. The troops aro
carefully confined to barracks, and disorders are'feared, but up to the present
hour there has been no disturbances.
Madrid, July 6.���The Queen Regent
has signed a decree promoting Colonel
Oriene/, and Colonel Escarios to the
rank of major general.
ALFONSO XIII SUNK.

Washington, July (I. ��� Secretary Long
has received word through General
Greeley, signal officer, wliich is accepted as confirming the report that
the Spanish ship Alfonso XIII was destroyed while trying to run the Havana* blockade. General Greeley's information came in a cipher message,
and he considers the report reliable.
Tbe ship is said to he a total loss.

CERVERA'S   LAST SHIP.

Headquarters of General Shafter,
July f>, per Associated Pr*" ������ Despatch
Ff,,.':'- Dr-.uV., via Poi-I .'. .ioni.i and
Kingston, Jamaica, 6 p. m., July 6.���
The destruction of the Spanish cruiser
Reina Mercedes last night (Monday)
accounts for the last ship of A Lmiral
Cervera's once splendid squadron. Sho
lies today in plain view, her bow resting on the base of the beach under El
Morro. Part of the hull is above the
water, and ber masts and stacks are
entirely out of water. It is not yet
known whether she attempted to escape from tho harbor or whether tho
Spaniards tried to sink hor near the
hull of the Merrimac and thus block
the. entrance to prevent the American
fleet from getting in. Just boforo
midnight she was seen drifting slowly
out of the narrow entrance hy ono of
the American scout ships. In a
moment the fleet was ablaze with signals and almost instantly an awful
hail of shells was hammering down
upon her. It is not known whether
she returned the Are, but tho shore
batteries opened lire and one six-inch
shell fell on the Indiana's deck.cxplod
ing below. The oxploison occurred in
tbe men's sleeping rooms, but a1! wore
at quarters and none woro hurt. No
other American ship was hit during
tbe engagement or incident, which
lasted only a few minutes.
CAMARA   HOME AGAIN.
Straits   of   Gibraltar   111   Defended���
Couta Has Four Modern Guns.
London, July 0.���The Gibraltar correspondent of ihe Daily News says:
Admiral Camara has been ordered to
return to Spain immediately to protect
the costs in view of the Amerioan
threats. The Spanish attempts to place
batteries in position so as to seal the
straits of Gibraltar are an illusion, as
Centa possesses only four modern
guns.

i hearer of the opposition   in Kootenay.
i Thero is  just this  difference  between
iile supporters of th" independent ean-
d dale ( Farwell) and the supporters of
tho opposition candidate (Hume): The
J latter arc backed up by a party organization that must   recognize party ser
i vices; the former are hoping that
lightning may striKe thoir man.
There is ono thing the. opposition are
not attempting to do in this riding,
that is, they are not attempting to
bribe voters. They tire not building
useless trails ovor to Idaho with money
contributed by taxpayers in British
Columbia. Mr. Farwell, the independent candidate, has now the say as to
where money shall be spoilt in this
riding on trails, and his henchmen
and supporters are taking advantage of
the opportunity by going over into
Idaho and building trails. Tliis is so
satisfactory lo Canadians that they
will probably show their satisfaction
by voting that the independent candidate Mr, Farwell, will stay at homo
aud attend strictly to disbursing his
own money for the next four years.

STARVATION WAGES.
The results of the action of the Hall
Mines l'o. in cutting down wnges are
already beginning to show. Some of
the best mon are leaving town to go
elsewhere, where tliey can work for a
decent! remuneration. The working-
men of Nelson should notice the tendency of thet" things. Exporionco has
shown that one successful cut in wages
always brings another before loug.
This means in time tho'driving out of
white labor. The poople who have
made the first cut are supporters of a
government who favor the immigration of the Chinese.
The workingmen of Kootenay recognize that their interest lies in supporting those who are opposing thc introduction of cheap labor. A government
who favors the Chinese immigrant
cannot grhap the conditions essential
to th.e prosperity of the provinco, or
expect to get the suffragos of the electors.
One of the arguments used by the
supporters of A. ;'. Farwell is that the
Turner govormnout is .-nre lo bo returned, and thai Kootenay would ho
best served by having a frit nd, like
Mr. Farwell, at court. The opposition
in Kootenay have never been time-
servers, and thev are not tiino-servors
now. Thoy believe tlmt tho Turner
government should be defonted, and
they arc going to do their utmost to
defeat it at this election. They defeated Mr. Farwell in 1800; thoy defeated Mr. Buchanan in 1894, ar.d they
will defeat Mr. Farwell and the whole
Turner outfit next Saturday. Tho next
government of British Columbia will
have for its promier Charlos A. Somlin
nf Yale, nov ,T. II. Turner of Viotoria.
The next commissioner of lands and
works will not ke G. B. Martin of
Kamloops i r James Hunter of Victoria
or A, S. Farwell. but that position

"East Lynne" was produced successfully to a large and select audience last
night. Miss Clara Mathes as Lady
Isabel and Madame Vino was the star
of the evening and gave evidence of
great emotional nowers. Her death
scene was especially fine. Mr. Chapman again showed his versatility by
playing the villainous Sir Francis in
an artistic manner. While the play is
rather a somber one the careful halidl
ing it received from the company kept
the audience interested to the end.
Miss Luella Beck in the role of Miss
Corner   provided    the   comedy of   the
play. Miss II. Leonard gave an earnest
performance of Barbara Have, the
Messrs. Lewis as Archibald and John
Hill were also deserving of praise.
Valentine Love's comedy, "The Mail
Girl" is thc bill for tonight, with the
entire company in the cast and Harry
Lindley iu one of his funniest roles.

TO TSE ELECTORS
OF THE NELSON RIDING OF WEST
KOOTENAY ELECTORAL
DISTRICT.
Gentlemen,���I offer myself us an independent candidate to represent you
in the next ProvincialJParliamenfc.
Should I lie fortunate enough to secure your support 1 shall endeavor to
bring about the following reforms:
(1) A change in the Mineral Act to
compel all partners in a mining claim
to bear their share of the assessment
work or forfeit their interest.
(2) An amendment to cause litigants
to put up reasonable security for costs
before adversing applications for certilicates of improvements,
(3) Regular promotion in the Civil
Service, avoiding lhe injustice of tlio
appointnient of outsiders over the
heads of men already in Ibe service,
all vacancies being tilled by our own
people.
(I) The removal from (be Statute
book of the discriminatory tax of ��5.IX)
per annum on mechanics, miners and
others employed in our metalliferous
mines.
If returned I pledge myself to work
to the best of my ability to secure a
local expenditure of public ninnies
in proportion lo the revenue collected
in the district, and lo ensure such expenditure being laid out to the best
possible advantage.
The inining interests of British Columbia have now reached such proportions thai ii is desirable they should
be administrated by a separate department under the charge of a minister
who would devote his undivided attention to the subject.
I shall endeavor lo rescind the legislation of 'llli. by whieh inining suits
were taken on: of ,'ne jurisdiction of
the County Court and relegated to the
Supreme Court, thereby entailing increased costs and interminable delays.
During the past eight years Kootenay has been represented bv straight
government supporters tind by an out
and out oppositionist, the result in
neither cose has been satisfactory. I
consider the lime has arrived when all
the Kootenay members should join in
advocating measures for the benefit of
this district as a whole and for its
special industry, without regard to
party.
A  S. FARWELL.

NOTES.
The prominence which some papers
are. giving to the reported failure of
the Peterson-Ynto company to carry
out their fast Atlantic steamboat service contract is liable to give rise to a
suspicion that such failure would not
bo a cause of unalloyed grief to them.
Surely the sterling und almost exclusive patriotism of the conservative
press would prevent their rejoicing
over such an incident. The true
pal riot would never allow a party advantage to supersede the national
good.
The local election now in progress
in British Columbia is of greater import ance und is creating more interest
in eastern Canada than nny of its predecessors. The great Pacific province
has forged into a front position in the
confederation during the past three or
four years, and the Dominion as a
whole is deeply interested in their
welfare and prosperity. These depend
on ihe government being in the hands
of sale though progressive men and the
issues awaiting treatment at the hands

TO THE   ELECTOR
Ol llie   SlllClin   Hnl fn;-.   ol'  West   Ikiioli nuv
Klpclorul IMsirii-i,
Gentlemen:���At ihe request of a
huge proportion of the community
representing every section of the
Hiding. I beg to announce myself as 11
candidate lo- your suffrages in the
coining eleel ions
In respectfully soliciting your voles
and snpporl I declare myself a supporter and follower ofthe Hon. .I. II.
'1 iirner as the Leader of the only Party
in this Province with a defined Policy
and coherent existence.
Hilling my eight years residence in
this District 1 have been a consistent
supporter of his Party in recognition
of their attitude in meeting, and in
cases anticipating the requirements
and expansion of this great inining
region. I am in favor of the following reforms:���
(1| The abolition of the Tax upon
wo-king miners.
(2) The abolition of the Mortgage
Tax.
t'.i) The distribution of seats in the
Legislature in direct proportion to
population.
111 I do not approve of the Policy of
the late Legislative Assembly in using
their influence to exclude foreign railroads, such as the proposed railroad
to Boundary Creek.
(5) I favor certain revisions in the
Mineial nnd Land Acts, particularly
some easy plan by which the holders
nf claims call advertise out their defaulting co-oivnei's.
((I) In filling all Government appointments 1 am in favor of appointing
bona fide residents of the District in
all cases where such can be found
competent to act.
(7) I believe that, the Provincial
Legislature should bring all the aid
and influence ut its command to
the assistance of the lead mining industry, especially iu the direction of
obtaining stronger recognition from
the Federal Government at Ottawa of
the importance of this industry and
the disadvantages under which it now
labors.
If you do me tho honor to elect me
as your representative 1 will at* all
times endeavor lo protect nnd further
the interests, not only of the prospector  hut, also of all  those   employed
in and around our mines, recognizing
that, our entire community is dependant upon the mining industry.
I am. Gentleman,
Your obedient, servant,
John L. BeTALLAOK.
