Washington, July 1.���The warde'
partment has reoeived the following
despatch from General Shafter, dated
nt Siboney:
"Wo hud a very HeaVy engagement
today, which lasted from 8 a. m. until
sundown. We have carried the outworks and are now in possession of
"There is now about, three-quarters
of a mile of open ground between my
lines and the eity.
"This morning my troops have been
entrenched. Lawton's division and
Bates' brigade, which liave been engaged all day in carrying Elcanay,
and which was accomplished at 4 p,
m., will be ill line and in front of
Santiago during the night.
"I regret to say that our casualties
will be above 400, but of these not
many were killed.
(Signed) "SHAFTER."
Port. Said, July 1,���Tlie Spanish colliers Colon and Oavadonga have entered the Suez canal.
Siboney, li :SiO p. m., via JPlaya del
Este, Guantanamo Bay, July 1.���At* 1
o'clcok this afternoon, after] live hours
of terrific fighting the Spanish began
to leave their entrenchments and retreat into the eity.
Many Americans were wounded.
Ono man had botli anus shot off and
was wounded in the hip.
Washington, July J.��� The cabinet
was in session for two hours today,
but no important* action was taken.
The session was mainly occupied with
the discussion of the news from Santiago. General Shaffer's despatch was
read aloud before the member of the
cabinet. Thoro was a general feeling
of gratification shown at tho co-operation referred to by Admiral Sampson.
Careful plans to this end were made
in a general way some timo ago,
though leaving to Sampson the greatest discretion. After tho cabinet meeting Secretary Long said the fleet under Admiral Sampson was co-operating
to Uie'fullest extent with the. land
forces and that* he expected great results. He suggested that* there wero
two conditions contained in the Santiago question.
One is, he said: "We will surely
win, and the other, tliat it will como
about after hard lighting. Of this we
are certain.''
Tho sentiment in tho cabinet was
that thero was a strong possibility that
the fall of Santiago might* bo announced at any time. Assurance was
given at today's session of tho cabinet
of tho expectation of the administration that Germany would nut
interfere at* Manila. There was some
discussion on the point* but both the
president and Secretary Day said Ihey
had received assurances that, there
was no unfriendly action contemplated
ou ihe part of the German empire.
The}* expressed the belief that there
was no real foundation fur the reports
of the unfriendly attitude of Germany
and of the radical stops contemplated
by the government,and indicated their
personal conviction that there need be
no serious apprehension on that score.
Several membtTS of the cabinet do not
share Ihis confidence in Iho German
attitude. The adniinistration|[hiis much
confidence in tho judgment and the
acts of both Admiral Dewey and General Merritt, The latest, advices reported to the cabinet woro that Admiral Camara's Spanish fleet would
proceed throgh tlio Sue/, canal on their
journey to tho Philippine islands.
This, however, is discounted by previous expectations and preparations, and
there is confidence in the arrival of
tho Monterey, Monadnoek and tho
Charleston oft' Manila before Camara
can possibly reach there.

born fight* ensued, in which the Spanish commodore, a lioutenant colonel,
was killed. Tho insurgents havo captured the governor of Bulucan together
with his wife and children.
General Aguinaldo placed under arrest tho rebel leaders Arichie and Sen-
drico for having revealed the fact that
tho steamer Passo recently seized by
the Hong Kong authorities, was laden
with arms for tho insurgents. Sen-
drico applied to Consul Williams and
was liberated. He is now on board
tho Nanshan. It is feared that the incident will causo a split iu tho insurgent party, as Sendrico is influential
and tho only insurgent capablo of administration. The insurgents fear that
General Aguinaldo will shoot Ar
tachie unless Admiral Dewey inter
feres. Aguinaldo was suspicious thnt
Sendrico and Artaohie intended to
form an opposition party.

Victoria, July 1.���The stern-wheel
steamer Marquis of Dufferiu, built in
Vancouver for the British America
Corporation for use ou tho Yukon, became a hopeless wreck early this morning while in tow of the Progress betweeu Cape Flattery and Cape Dealo.
The Dufferin, it appears, could not
stand tho towing strain and smashed
to pieces.
The crew escaped in boats and woro
taken on tho Progress to Barclay sound
and thence on the Willapa to Alberni.
The C. P. R. steamer Tartar, bound
inward this afternoon, sighted tho
wreck of tho Dufferin floating bottom
sido up about 12 miles from Capo Flattery.
A Young  Nova   Scotian   Perishes   in

Victoria, July 1.���Word was brought
by tho Tartar, arriving from the north
tonight, of tho death of a young Nova
Scotian named O'Brien,while proceeding up the Stikine river on his way to
the Yukon gold fields. He was sitting
in his canoe steering it, while an Indian on tho land with a tow-rope
pulled it against the swift current. At
a place whero the bank is some twenty
feet high a great boulder became dislodged and fell, striking O'Brien on
tho head and killing him instantly.

In another column will bo found a
declaration signed by the opposition
candidates of the Island of Vancouver,
pledging themselves to endeavor to
have tho scandal arising'from this
grant removed. Wo doubt if it is as
generally understood3 as it should be
in this district what a grave abuse tliis
laud grant is, and how under its provisions, as at present construed by its
holders, uo less than one-third of the
island of Vancouver escapes its just
share of taxes, wliich consequently
have to be made up by the other sections of tho province. Tho opposition
is pledged to work for the removal of
this anomaly.
The facts aro briefly these, and they
will bo peculiarly appreciated by the
mining and farming community. The
company makes every prospector who
locates u claim pay them 8260 for surface rights, whether the claim has any
ascertained valuo or not. This would
be .hard enough woro thoy acting
within thoir rights, but as a matter of
fact, it* is extremely probable that
they havo no such right. No individual
prospector could afford to fight this
wealthy company, and so far they continue to fatten undisturbed oh the
hard-earned money of the working
man. The farmers are even worse
treated, if suoh a thing is possible,
Tho company will only soil inferior
land to settlers, at exorbitant prices,
and then the land is cumbered with
provisions which tho farmer frequently
does not understand and which may
make his land practically valueless.
Clauses are inserted in every deed
which resorvo tho right, to mine on the
laud on giving compensation, and also
to tako any land they may want for
their railway, nnd all the limber they
want for railway purposes without giving auy compensation at all. Those
last ��� two clauses havo the effect of
making slaves of the population; for if
any man offends thom politically or
otherwise thoy can take away the land
he has paid for, or cut down all the
timber on his place, and it must* be
remembered that on Vancouver island
the timjier is 'frequently worth more
than tho land.
This scandalous abuse of power is
the moro inexcusable in that there is
Btrong reason to boliovo that tho land
does not belong to Iho company, who
merely hold it as trustees to sell as
crown lands.
Tho opposition is determined to put
an end to this state of things. Is
British Columhia to be administered
solely for the benefit of tho Dunsmuir
oliqueV: The Dunsmuirs . know this
and aro straining ovory nerve to got
as many of their henchmen as possible
iuto the legislature. There are at this
moment uo less than five candidates
either members of the Dunsmuir family or iiii'l' r their control. Theso are
Jam ������*',, nsinuir, head of the Duns-
mui-t* tumily; Dr. Walkom, the doctor
of the Dunsmuir collieries; James
Bryden,,..Duusmuir's brother-in-law;
C. E. Pooley, solicitor to tho Dunsmuirs, and Joseph Hunter, tho manager
of tho Dunsmuirs' railway.
The province has been governed by
ono family long enough, the people aro
tired of it, and let everyone remember
that when they voto for the opposition
candidate; they aro voting for freedom
nud equality, and are voting against
the tyranny of the purse.

1806, Premier Turner, iu advocating

Every^traveller through the mineral
regions of British Columbia, whether
expert* or novice, is impressed with the
great extent of the territory over which
this wealth is distributed. Nowhere
in the world liave mineral deposits of
such richness been shown to exist
over so groat an area. We are just beginning to uncover these vast deposits,
and overy year for a long series will
show an increased export of the ores of
gold, silver, copper and lead. The
metals and minerals schedule of exports was formerly of comparative insignificance, but since 18911, when the
Kootenay exports began to tell, metal
and mineral exports havo increased
from two and a half millions to about
fourteen in the year just* closing. All
of this cannot be credited to the mine
alone. Wo should not be at all surprised to learn that agricultural implements to tho value of over a million
dollars figure in the total, for our exports of reapers have been increasing
rapidly. But taking metals and minerals and manufactures of these together and discounting materially the
glowing stories of progress that come
almost dailj- from the mining districts
we see no reason to doubt that within
five years our mines will be more important as a source of exports thtm
either our forests or our fisheries, vast
as both of these aro.���Toronto Globe.
Tho British ambassador to St. Petersburg is tin important person in these
days, and Sir Charles Stewart Scott,
K. 0. M. G., 0. B.,who has just been
nominated to that post, will occupy a
position of great responsibility. Ho
has been just forty years in tho
diplomatic service. Tho greater part
of his work has been performed in the
smaller German courts, aud there is
no man in the service, today with a
more intimate knowledge of the German empire and its complex constitution than tho new ambassador. Ho
has also served in Washington and in
St. Petersburg, and now returns to the
latter capital after an absence of four
and twenty years, lie has always been
one of the quiet workers in the diplomatic service. Making no claim to
brilliance, ho has done a great deal of
work in dull posts as in imjo. t.int conferences with that thoroughness which
is his main characteristic. In a long
service of forty years it is great*
achievement to havo mado no mistakes. As a subordinate ho was hard
working; as a chief ho knows how to
attract his juniors aud how to extract
from them their best. Ho is an Irish

spent in his native land. It is iuterj
esting to noto that he is an old con-

The custom of having warships sail
"under scaled orders" has arisen from
the dosire of maritime powers to prevent their plans from becoming known
to the enemy.
In the American navy such ordors
come from the president,and are delivered to the commander of a ship or
squadron by a confidential messenger
who knows nothing of their contents.
Sometimes they aro in cipher, but
they are always sealed with tho official
seal of tho navy department, and tho
package cannot be openod until the
timo marked on it, which is usually sov-,
eral hours after tho hour of leaving
By tliis precaution the newspapers
are prevented from disclosing prematurely movements which may be of
the greatest importance, and the spies
of the enemy arn rendered useless so
far as their ability to discover tho
secret of such movements is concerned.

Tlio [cause of the federation of the
empire is continually being promoted
by tho trend of current events and
influences, amongst which may certainly be included the gain by distinguished colonial men of positions in
one or the othor of the imperial houses
of parliament. We, thorofore, record
witli satisfaction the recent well
earned promotion to tho uvuks of tho
houseof lords of Sir Arthur Haliburton,.
late permanent British under secretary,
for war. Sir Arthur, tho son of a'
literary distinguished sire, who, under
the sobriquet of Sam Slick, wrote racily
of the old time people of tho maritime
provinces, is himself a Nova Scotian
by birth and proud of the fact of being
Canadian born, has taken for tho placo
of his title, his native town of Windsor. So he will sit in the house of
lords as Lord Windsor of Nova Scotia,
and wo trust thoro long coutinuo to
aid two other well known Canadian
peers in the discussion of matters
affecting tho empire at largo, whilst
speaking with special knowlodge of
our own self-govorning Dominion
within tho empire.���News Advertiser.

Tlie wrestling mutch between Jack

postponed on Thursday night, wus
pulled off lust night in the Vernon

for O'Neill. Both men were in good
condition und a lively contest wus
given, but O'Neill is u heavier und
consequently a better mnn, und West
could no,-* win out ou tlie odds given,or
in tact, on uny odds, us O'Neill is at
least* 20 pounds out of his class. Tlie
spectators present, however, got the
worth of tlieir money, for West made a
desperate struggle to put O'Neill's
buck on tho mat, and botli men did
some very clever work. The hold
throughout was oatch-as-catoh-can and
tlie match was very clean, excepting
the full ou whioh O'Neil won tlie last
round. The first full wus given to West
after !il minutes hard work. O'Neill
took the second and third falls in 4}-.��
and I'.j minutes respectively, and won
the fourth round on a foul, West having taken Hie strangle hold on him,
wliich wus barred before the contest

In the old world the walnut is found
wild in the Banat territory of Hungary, in the mountains of Greece, in
Armenia, the north of India aud in
Japan, The Greeks neglected their native trees and hnporterto better variety
from Persia The Romans cultivated
it to a great extent and got. the first
trees from Persia. They throw nuts nt
weddings ns wo throw rice.
Just why walnuts are mimed us they
nre is a mystery, for the word means
"foreig limit," Tlie blnck walnut is indigenous to tliis country, and
probably received its namo from its
resemblance to tho English walnut,
says tlie Chicago News. Anglo-Saxons
coined the name in their own homo
before they came to Britain und found
tho nut, whioh the Romans had doubtless brought* over, as it wus one of
their favorite delicacies.
The, old proverb says that "he wlio
plants a walnut tree expects not to eat
of the fruit. " Tlio tree is one of the
slowest to come to maturity we know,
for it does not* bear until 20 years old,
An old farmer nnd tree-grower gives as
a rule for planting wulnut trees to
dig a shallow hole, place in a layer of
decayed leaves from the woods, plant
nuts with the husks removed, cover
witli a small licit]) of leaves und next
year you will find some havo grown.
In another yeur you nitty use your discretion nbout what saplings shall be
left to grow.

"Whereas,   The Turner government
by its class legislation, (1) by imposing a ta?; upon tlm output of metalliferous mines not imposed upon tlie

'' And with a view to securing the
above reforms, wo pledge ourselves to

nominee of this convention.''
Gentlemen,���I offer myself lis an independent candidate to represent you
in the next Provincial|Parlinment.
Should I lie fortunate enough to secure your support I shall endeavor to
bring aliout the following reforms:
(1) A change in the Mineral Act to
compel all partners in a mining claini
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 certificates of improvements,
(8) Regular promotion in the Civil
Service, avoiding the injustice of tho
appointment of outsiders over the
heads of men already in the service,
all vacancies being filled by our own
(1) The removal from the Statute
book of the discriminatory tax of 85.00
per annum on mechanics, miners and
others employed in our metalliferous
If returned I pledge myself to work
to the best of iny ability to secure a
local expenditure of public monies
in proportion to the revenue collected
In the district, and to ensure such expenditure being laid out to the best
possible advantage.
The mining interests of British Columbia have now reached such proportions that it is desirable they should
be administrated by a separate department under the charge of a minister
wdio would devote his undivided attention to tho subject.
I shall endeavor to rescind the legislation of '90, by which mining suits
were taken out of the jurisdiction of
the County Court and relegated to tho
Supreme Court, thereby entailing increased costs and interminable delays.
During the past eight years Kootenay lias lieen represented bv straight
government supporters and by an out
and out oppositionist, the result in
neither case has been satisfactory. I
consider the time has arrived when all
the Kootenay members Bhould join in
advocating measures for the benefit of
this district as a whole and for its
special industry, without regard to

Tor eight years in succession tlie
Citizens of Nelson have celebrated Dominion day, and the ��ther towns of
ilie Kootenay imve uccorded the day to
Nolson's celebration and have joined
heartily in the event. The lirst day of
the eighth year of the annual Dominion day celebrution in Nelsou wus held
yesterday, and was tlie most successful in the history of Nelson, and must
have lieen especially satisfactory to the
citizens and the committee in charge
of the sports.
The principal business places of the
city had been handsomely decorated
and the streets wore a holiday appearance.
The citizens were awakened at an
early hour by the booming of cannon
to begin u day of thorough enjoyment.
The weather was perfect and everybody had au opportunity of enjoying
oach event to the fullest, extent. At 10
o'clock a procession headed by the Nelsou brass band marched to the wharf,
where they met the visitors from the
north. About ISO people came down
on the International from Kaslo and
way points, and an equal numbor came,
down on tlio Kokanee, which arrived
aliout half an hour later.
The train from the Slocan arrived
about 11 o'clock, bearing aliout SCO
more excursionists from New Denver,
Slocau City und way points.
The first item on the program wus a
match foot race between Dill of Kaslo
and Joe Thompson of Nelson. Owing
to some misunderstanding as to the details of the arrangements the race did
not take place,
The hub und hub race, free for nil,
then took place between the Kuslo und
Nelson teams, Nelson winning easily
iu 18 s< couds.
Tiie next item on the program was
tho quarter-mile horse race, free for
ull. This race, tile entries for which
were given iu our last issue, resulted
in a wm for Jack, a horse from North-
port. The race was run on linker
street, tlie winning post being opposite
ilie Tremont hotel, whose veranda was
used as tho judge's stand. Tlie Nelson
horse race, open only to Nelson horses,
wus run over (lie same course. After
(lie third bent of tlie free for all race
ihe jockey of Greasy Duck entered a
protest, alleging that the jockey riding
a horse culled 65 hud fouled him in tlie
race. After hearing witnesses on both
sides llie judges overruled Ihe protest.

17,744 tons, an increase of only 107
tons over January, 1897, while our exports were 11,080 tons, an increase of
1876 tons. In this same month
the European output decreased from
0696 fons n yeur ago lo 5550 now. Yet
England, Prance nnd Germany consumed more copper by 44711 tons thnn
the entire production of (lie United
States. The visible supply in England
nnd Prance decreased 2698 tons during
January nud February.
Higher prices for coppor stocks are
confidently predicted. Boston and

When a young Laplander is iu love*
with a girl he and she run a race. He
is heavily handicapped, so thar, she
may win if she chooses,and if slie out
run him lie ennnot propose again. Of
course she suffers herself to he overtaken if slie cares for him,hut the eon-
sent of her parents must be obtained
before she can be married. Tlie law
of the land is very strict* ou (his point,
and in olden times tlie man wns subject to capital punishment* if he
married without the consent of the
girl's parents. After a Laplander has
chosen a bride lie sends her a present
of a girdle, a ring and a quantity of
brandy; lie goes so fur ns the door of
her liut, and remains outside until invited to enter, when a bumper of
brandy is offered to tlie girl's father;
if he drinks it it. is a sign lie consents
to tlie marriage, and tlie young lover
thon promises to give the girl some
clot lies, and pays a sum of money,
generally 100 copper dollars, on the
spot. Tliis, of course, is a remnant of
marriage liy purchase, wliich, in
primitive times, succeeded marriage
lij- capture. Banns are published once
in Lapland and (lie marriage ceremony is very short. Tlie bride wears
her hair loose and has a gold bund
around her head. Her parents and her
dowry are generally reindeer, and slie
and her bridegroom remain witli her
parents for a year after marriage.

After a careful estimate Dr. Dawson, chief of tlie geological survey,
gave tho following figures to the Ottawa house of commons:
The total output, ho says, from tho
Yukon district has boen $4,100,500. Of
this total $2,500,000 were mined in
1S0T, $800,000 iuJKDli, $860,000 in 1895,
$l:>5,000 in 1894, $176,000 in l,so:i, $87, -
000 in 1893, $-10,000 in 1891, $175,000 in
1 SHI), and various small sums prior to
that time. Dr. Dawson says (hut thoro
bus up to tho present time, beeu no
reoognied method of obtaining statistics in tho district or of ascertaining
in regard to gold exported by the river
how much was derived from Canadian
and how much from Alaskan placers.
The main point that is, however, suggested by tho figures is tlio smnllness
of tho Yukon gold yield us compared
with the enormousness of the Klondike
rush. Mr. Liveruush.of Dawson Oity,
wlio lias boen sent to Ottawa as a delegate to protest against tho excessive
royalty dues and other Dominion levies,
fully confirms Dr. Dawson's moderation as regards tlie estimate of Yukon
gold yield. Mr. Livernush, wlio certainly should know whereof lie speaks,
says tlmt if tho simple truth were
brought home to many a poor fellow
now preparing for a trip to the Yukon,
much Buffering would be spared, the
output nntl probable wealth of thu
Yukon being vastly exuggeruted. Up
(o lust sumnier tlio country liad not
yielded more than $2,600,000, Lust.
year's gold output wus well within
$1,500,000. Work for tlio present winter will not bring more than $6,000, -
000,    Indeed,    the     largest      estimate
offered by any responsible party is
$10,000,000, made up as follows:
Bonanza crook, $4,000,000; El Dorado
crook, $-1,000,000; Hunker creek, $-1(10,-
000; Boar, Dominion, Sulphur and
other creeks, $1,000,000, and small
creeks and sidehill claims, another $5, ���
000,000. Mr. Livernash assorts that
every dollar thus far extracted from
the Klondike, lias cost ono dollar, and
moro than one half of the men who
wont to the Klondike last year must
be written down as failures. Thoy
are poorer Ihan when they entered tlio
country.���Mining and Electrical Review.
