On Board the Associated Press Despatch Boat Dandy. Off Santiago de
Cuba, Wednesday, June 2, (i p. in., via
Kingston, Jamaica, Thursday, June
80, 11 p. in.���The forces of tho American army arc being mobilized as
rapidly as possible in the vicinity of
Aguadores, four miles from Santiago
ile Cuba. The moment mobilization is
completed the attack on Spain's last
ditch in eastern Cuba will be begun.
When that* will be General Shafter
himself cannot say. Tho troops can
be moved without serious delay and
are pushing forward rapidly, but tlie
movement* of the pack trains, wagons,
ambulances and artillery is taxing the
endurance of the officers and men to
the utmost, From Baiquiri, where
the military is landed, to the present
point of concentration, the road runs
through a tangle of undergrowth up
and dowu a steep hillside aud over
treacherous swamp border streams for
a distance of 12 miles. Through that
continuous thicket the road of the
army is cutting its way.
Engineers are at work leveling the
track and filling pits, while a large
force of regulars and  volunteers  with
axes, aided by Cubans with machetes,
are hacking down trees aud clearing
out, the brush. A few light guns have
already reached this port, but the siege
guns are not within five miles of the
vanguard. Shatter left his ship today
and took up his quarters with General
Wheeler at the front. His appearance
there gave rise to tho rumor I tut an
attack on Santiago would occur tomorrow, but the staff ollicers tonight say
it* is impossible to get the army in
shape to strike a blow for several days.
About 20(1(1 troops are camped four
miles east of the besieged city and the
remainder of the forces are stretched
along the road from there to Juragua
Jind Baiquiri. The advance forces an*
iu a semi-circle, the left flank resting
about two miles from the sea. under
tiie command of General Chaffee, with
the extreme right, under command of
Colonel Miles, about a mile to the
��� Beginning with the Twelfth infantry
at the extreme left, the Seventh, Seventeenth, Fourth, Twenty-fifth ancl
Tenth infantry extend to the right in
the order named. Beyond them picket
lines are established three-quarters of a
mile nearer Santiago, being in plain
sight of General Chaffee's and Colonel
Miles' troops. Much amusement has
been caused among the ollicers by tho
l*'ge number of Ked Cross Hags flying
from buildings in Santiago. Seven
such flags could be counted today, and,
it is reported, that, OWO more were
hoisted tonight. They aro all flying
from the largest and most prominent
buildings and our offioerssav the Spanish soldiers evidently intend to protect*
every place in tho city offering a good
mark for thn American artillery.
Word was received by Rear Admiral
Sampson today tlmt the Spanish supply boat Purisama Conception, which
escaped from Jamaica recently, has arrived safely at Tunas, tho port- of
Sancti Spiritus, on the southern coast,
of the province of Santa Clara. The
naval ollicers here are much chagrined
over the fact* that tho steamer got

It is not long sinco Premier Turner
was here in Nelson and was given an
opportunity to put his past policy and
future intentions before the electors in
the most favorable light, Ho addressed
a crowded meeting, aud though his
audience consisted almost entirely of
his political opponents, ho was patiently
listened to for one hour and a half,
but his hearers went away with no
more definite idea of the government's
intentions than they had before. As
Mr. Cotton appositely remarked in his
reply, "thore was a great deal of
ancient history and very little inform
ation. on tho various points so vital to
the electors. " In his lame attempt to
answer the criticisms of the opposition
as to his method of subsidizing the
Nakusp & Slocan railway, the premier
devote a great deal of wind and energy to explaining���what everyone
knew beforehand���that the railway
was badly needed, but* in defence of
the government's action he could only
say that though he admitted the mistakes, he should not be blamed because
he eould not think of any other way
out of the difficulty.
Could there be any stronger evidence
of tho incapacity of the government
tli��n that thus afforded liy the premier
himself'/ After mature consideration
the Turner government could not devise any better scheme of obtaining a
railroad than tho extraordinary one <;f
practically providing all the money,
and thon letting -Jhe company reap all
the profits. , Is it*~to be wondered at,,
when the affairs cf the province aie
managed ih this way, that the electors
are "ttnxfcus to liave another hand at
tke heljn? ,
Othor matters which deeply interost
the electors of this district, such as
.the tax pn those who work iu metalliferous mines and the redistribution
bill, the premier did  not  mention   at
���all until ho was forced to. The premier then admitted the injustice of the
$5 tax, but said it had not been   taken
���off owing to representations from tho
mining districts! Tho ^Minor would
very much like to know what manner
oflpien these wero wild1 suftlioated
that thoy might bo taxed ! The truth
of the matter itkthat tho government
is at its wits' end for money; they are
running moro deeply into debt every
day, although they havo taxed everything in sight, and so they cannot
afford to tako tho tax off. Bnt why
should the workors of Kootenay have
to pay for the incapacity of the government '!
With regard to the redistribution
bill. Mr. Turner seemed to think that
bocauso Kootenay had more members
than it used to have, it had no cause
to complain, us if a man who had boen
starved onco should bo content with
ono meal ii day for the rest of his lifo.
Ho di* not attempt to explain the
singular Coincidence that all tho over-
represeutod districts aro considered I
^Hife government seats, while those left
out in tbl cold unmistakably sympathize with the. opposition- Htf was
wise not to  attempt   an   explah^t ion ;
���it��v��uld "tax tho rosoumps of a much
cloveror speaker than Mr. Turner to'give
any plausible reason^ ���
Iu defending the mqttgage tax, the
��� premier g��t in a worse mess tluui ever.
He stated that ho had once represented
a loifti company and had Jiad persolahj
knowledge of tlie (ffects flf the tax.
Then ho wont ou to say that the bor-
rowfl* contracted himself into payitig
the tax and hit did nqt Ilee yrhy the
govor^ineift should have to help him,
and that jf tho-tux was taken oft an-
otbef would havy to take itp place.
Then ho toiiuuitted himsel%to the extraordinary statement-: ^"Everybody
else is taxed, -frhy ndt 'fljo" money
louder '/"���' .The premier seAued tofhavo
forgotten thattw6 or ttiroe minutes
before he had admitted   that as a mat-
"er of fact it was impossible to prevent
the borrower having to pay the tax.
He wound up by saying that a royal
30mmissicHl had been appointed at
great expense to inquire into the effects
of a tax he had just been explaining at
lonsiderablS length.
His great argument in defense of
this tax was, that* if the government
were to take it off, the lender would
charge additional interest and the borrower would be no better off. This
irgunient is based on false reasoning,
and the premier knows it, or if he
does not. it is but an additional proof
if his unfitness lo tako charge of the
finances of British Colombia. The
lenders might charge additional interest for a short time if the tax were
taken off,1 but (hey would not do so
permanently for the simple reason that
the price of money.like any other com-
modtiy, is a matter of supply and demand. Therefore, as capital flows in
the rato of interest on money loaned
ou a given security will decline. The
loau companies can profitably lend
money now without receiving this extra percentage, so we can rest assured
that were it to be added, competition
would soon take it off again.
Were thoso all the blunders tbo government have committed, they would
stand condemned by all sensible and
unprejudiced men, but their name is
legion, as The Miner intends to show
between this and election day.
Today marks the thirty-first anniversary of the confederation of the
various provinces of Canada, though in
1807 thoro were but four provinces in
the Dominion, and the great work was
uot completed until 1ST!). The name
of Sir John Macdonald will always be
inseparably conneetedwith the founding
and rearing of that great national
edifice wliich Sir Wilfred Laurier is
now completing and beautifying.
A generation ago Canada was a collection of disunited communities with
little influence or fame in the world;
today sho ranks high among the nations and her commerce and wealth
havo increased until she has become
one of the granaries of the world,
while the value of her shipping is fifth
on the list.
Dominion day is a season of rest
and rejoicing throughout Canada, aud
our own fair eity will not be back
ward in her celebration of the event.
Todny our streets will be thronged
with ' eager sightseers and pleasure-
seekers from all the country round,
whilo tlio time is being beguiled with
%orse rapes, games and friendly eon-
tests of all descriptions.

W. F. TEETZEL & CO. Nelson, B. C,
it A. S. Farwell is an independent*,
as his supportors say lie is, why it it
that ho is not being supported by the
independent peoplo of the riding? Why
is it that his support comes entirely
from the mon who iu the past have
either voted for government candidates
iu- who now support tlie Turner government? Tho men who are supporting Mr. Hume are the men who voted
for opposition candidates at the last
election or who believe that the Turner government is merely an agent of
tho Dunsmuir family compact. If Mr.
Farwell was really broad-gauge, out-
Spoken and independent, would ho not
be receiving support from at least some
of tho woll known men who are opponents of the Turner government?
He surely would. But he is only posturing as au independent. He was
brought out, not by the people, but by
a little clique of politicians whoso
leader is holding dowu a berth iu tho
court house at Nelson.
The supporters of the independent
candidate in this riding are much
worried over five questions that wore
asked Premier Turner at tho joint
meeting at Nelson, questions   that  he
ioiled to answer satisfactorily to even
ire strongest friends. The questions
were written by a mining man of
acknowledged ability. Tho chairman
of the meeting, Mayor Houston, merely
read theni at tho request of tho gentleman who framed them.
A�� S. Farwell is so independent that
the people of Nelson have come to the
conclusion that he does not want to
be bothered with thoir votes.
Anyhow, it  does   uot look us if  he
.will'be bothered much.
Mr. Fh.rweH'8 friends say ho will
be a member of the government, which
ever party gets in.

most unmercifully,
Premier Turner was  well  received,
and explained the railway policy of his
government, especially   in   connection
with   the  Nakusp   & Slocan railway,
which, he said, would prove   ;i   profit-I
able investment to the  province.    Thc ;
same policy would be continued iu tho
future   if   his   government   were   re- I
turned.    He then spoke  of   the   great
increase of revenue from the Kootenay
country   and said should he lie retired
from publio lifo. it would  be   pleasing
to him to remember the. great develop
ment   made   by   the.  Kootenay during
his  administration.    Ho    also   stated
that ho was sorry that he was an Englishman,
C. Cliffe of Sandon followed, replying to the premier's arguments. Ho

"Resolved, That, tho interests of the

as their representative in tho next
provincial legislature a man wlio will
uot ouly strongly advocate but will
also use his influence witb tho members of tho legislative assembly opposed
to the present, administration to secure
tlie following reforms:
"First���An equitable plan of representation in the legislative assembly on a
basis that will recognize that an elector in one portion of tho province is
the equal of an elector in any other
portion where like circumstances prevail.
" Second���Equalization in taxation
with respect to mines, so that if the

" Third���Repeal of tho special tax
imposed upon working miners in the

of the nature of a trado tax and is an
unjust exaction.

Gentlemen,���I offer myself as an independent candidate to represent you
in the next Provincial Parliament.
Should I be fortunate enough to secure your support I shall endeavor to
bring about the following reforms:
(1) A chango in the Mineral Aet to
compel all partners in a inining claim
to bear their share of the assessment
work oi- forfeit their interest.
(2) An amendment to cause litigants
to put up reasonable security for costs
before adversing applications for certificates of improvements,
(3) Regular promotion in the Civil
Service, avoiding the injustice of the
appointment of outsiders over tho
heads of men already in the service,
all vacancies being filled by our own
(4) The removal from the Statute
book of the discriminatory tax of $5.00
per annum on mechanics, miners and
others employed in our metalliferous
If returned I pledge myself to work
to the best of my 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.
Tho inining interests of British Columbia have now reached such proportions that, it is desirable they should
be administrated liy a separate department under tbe charge of a minister
who would devote his undivided attention to the subject.
I shall endeavor to rescind the legislation of '00, by which mining suits
woro taken out of the jurisdiction of
the County Court and relegated to the
Supremo Court, thereby entailing increased costs and interminable delays.
During the past eight years Kootenay has been 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 should join in
advocating measures for tbe benefit of
this district as a whole and for its
special industry, without regard to

llnve Marled,
Washington, June 80.���The situation
at the close of the day was described
hy Socrotnry Algor as being such as to
warrant him in entertaining the expectation of something important at
any moment. There wore two parties
to a battle,and it might lie precipitated
by either side, and no one hore knew
what the Spanish disposition was.
Nor is much more known respecting
General Shatter's plan of attack, although in his messages of yesterday be
indicated a purpose to move early on
tho enemy, as shown by his declaration
that reinforcements could not reach
him before he offered battlo, and Secretary Alger was very much gratified
when be learned today that direct telegraphic communication now existed
between Washington and General
Shatter's headquarters at Siboney.
The opinion is held hero that the navy
will co-operate in the attack on Santiago and to that end part of Shaffer's
force is to move immediately upon
Morro Castle to capture tho forts and
enable the naval launches to open the
gateway into the harbor by removing
the mines.
The experience of tho vessels while
in Guantanamo harbor, in pulling up
the mines there, is expected to very
much facilitate similar work at Santiago. No telegram came to tho war department today from General Shafter,
and the understanding here is that he
is employing his time to the best advantage in taking artillery and making
ready for the fined assault upon Santiago.
It is not known how far tho Spanish
reinforcements have advanced since
yesterday but General Shaffer has full
knowledge of their movements, and it
is believed ho is not likely to delay his
attack until they have strengthened
the garrisons ttt Santiago by uniting
with Linares. Tho socond expedition
from Tampa to reinforce Shafter appears to have encountered almost as
man}' difficulties as the original expedition in getting away. It was confidently expected here that a start
would be made from Tampa last Monday, but one difficulty after another
has arisen to retard the movement, so
it was with feelings of relief tbat the
news came from Tampa tbat tho flagship of the expedition, tlie Hudson,
had swung out into the stream and is
ready to lead ibo procession of transports which it is believed by this time
are undor way for Santiago.
Despatches to Shafter from Oamn
Alger via steamer from Newport
News, Vrginia, reached him today on
the Harvard, and tho Yale is expected
at Newport News (he day after tomorrow, returning from her first trip with
Dunield's soldiers to take more reinforcements, The steamers will be
further availed of in pursuance of
Secretary Alger's intention to continue the despatch of reinforcements
aftor reinforcements to Shafter until
ho has an overpowering force at his
command. Major General Coppiuger
will probably command the Porto
Rican expedition.
In   Anothor    Attempt    to   Get   Coal
for Cuba.
Washington, June !J0.��� The second
attempt to transfer coal from an
American vessel to a Spanish merchantman in Mexico was made yesterday. Tho 600-ton schooner Capt. A.
Phinney, New Ledford, somo days ago
was authorized to clear with 700 tons
of coal from Mobile for Vera Cruz, on
affidavits of reliable citizens of Mobile
that tbe coal was destined for railroad
purposes, On reaching Vera Cruz
Phinney was directed by L. Jonhlanc,
the consignee at tliat place, to take
the vessel along sido the Spanish
steamer Maria Harrara.
In tbe presence of a group of excited
Spanish sympathizers Captain Phinney
bluntly refused, declaring with emphasis that no vessel in bis chargo
would ever bo put alongside of a ship
bearing the flag of his country's
ouemy.juuch loss supply her with eveu
a pound of coal. The captain with a
crowd at bis heels marched to the
American consulate and notified the
consul that tho coal exports of Mr.
Jonhlanc of Vera Cruz should ceaso
and that tho department should undertake to fix tho responsibility and punishment for tho deed.
But Will Do Nothing Without Dewoy's
New York, Juue ,'i0.���A despatch to
the World from Berlin says:
The World correspondent reports on
the best authority that* Admiral Died-
