Manila Was Bombarded on
August 13.
Spauish  Officors   Ketaiu  Tlieir   Swi
Guards   Placed    ou   Foreigners'
Houses   AugU'ti's Escape.
Hont; Kong, Aug. 17.���The American collier Zalirro from Manila, which
arrive here yesterday, is anchored in
Junk huy. Sho left Manila on the
14th. A typhoon is raging uud it is
impossible to land the mails with details of the battle of Manila.
It is learned however, irom uii
American naval officer that when
Admiral Dewey on August (5 demanded
the surreuder of Manila withn 48
hours the Spani, li commander replied
that, the insurgents being outside tho
w ���*��'*'> he hud 110 safe place for the women * -1 children who were in the city
and 1 iked for 24 hours delay. This
Admiral Dewey grunted. At the expiration of the specified time Admiral
Dewey und General Merritt consulted
and decided to postpone the attack.
On August lil the Amerioan Bquadron formed in line off Manila. The
Olympia fired the first shot ut the
Malate fort. The shots of the Americans fell short and some time was
occupied in finding the range. Thou
the Cullao, ono of the. gunliouts captured by Admiral Dewey from the
Spuniurds, got under the fort and sunt
in a hot fire. Great destruction wus
done with the rapid fire guns. The
lost failed to reply Imt fired on the
American troops that were storming
tho Spanish trenches. Thn large
Amerioan ships were ordered to cease
(iriug after an hour's work, owing to
tho failure, of tho fort to respond.
The fighting in tho trenches was
most fierce. Fifteen minutes after
the Spaniards wero driven to the soc-
oud lino of defense, thoy wero forced
to retreat to the walled city, at whioh,
seeing the uselessnoss of resistence,
they surrendered and soon after a
white flag wus hoisted over Manila.
The Belgian consul at Manila, M.
Andre, boarded tho Olympia and returned with au American lieutenant
to the Spanish military governor, who
agreed to surrender.
General Merritt proceeded to the
palace at 8 :!J0, and then the Spaniards
formed in line and formally surrendered, but tho officers were permitted to
retain   thoir swords.    The  American
loss is reported to be six or eight.
-IriHi d r.nrt I!) woun.u d. TMe V.puni.sh
loss was considerable, but tin- exact
numbers are uot obtainable. The
trenches were filled with badly
wounded Spaniards.
Manila is now under martial law
with General Merritt us military governor,
The California Ked Cross Society
rendered valuable aid to the sick und
wounded. Perfect order prevailed in
Manila on the evening of August 18,
As the Americans marched in, guards
were placed around the houses of all
foreigners, ill order to prevent their
being looted,
Tiie insurgents were not allowed to
take part in the attack upon the eity,
but were kept in the rear of the Americans. Tu order to prevent bloodshed
they were forbidden lo enter tho city
after the surrender unless they wero
liefore the surrender the Spaniards
burned the transport Cebu in the Pusig
river, ft is supposed that Admiral
Dewey wus unaware of the departure
of Governor (ieneral Augusti. The.
Zafiro's officers first beard the news of
the governor general's flight on their
arrival here. General Augusti's escape is considered to have been prearranged, us he brought* with him liis
family and suite.
Ohicago-St. Paul   Roads  Cutting Into
Its Business.
Chicago, Aug. II.���Another blow-
hus been struck ut* the Canadian Pacific by the Ohicago-St. Paul roads.
At this season there is always an exodus of farm laborers from Ontario
und Eastern Canada to Manitoba and
tliis year it is larger than ever before,
over 8000 passengers having been
hauled in one week. Formerly the
Canadian Pacific had a monopoly of
this business. It was able lo load all
of ils own trains with 80 passengers
lo lhe ear. Now the American lines
have gone in us competitors for the
business and liave succeeded in di-
VOTting a large amount of the business
via Chicago and St. Paul. Dast night
���11)0 of these passengers were brought
here hv the Grand Trunk.

story based upon a despatch from

paper of the protectorate over the
whole of South Arabia is nonsensical,

change in the situation for the past
two decades.

Loudon, Aug. is.���United States
Ambassador Hay came to the embassy
from the country, whoro ho has been
visiting and after transacting some
accumulated business of a routine
character he. returned to continue his
visit. To the correspondent of tho
Associated Press he said:
"I have been offered and accepted
the post of secretary of state. I shall

Rome, Aug. 18. -r-The Vatican asserts
despite the reports to the contrary, that

Coeur D'Aleno, Idaho, Aug. 18.���
Sergeant G. Seiwe of Company G,
Sixteenth infantry, formerly (he provost sergeant at Fort Sherman, returned lust night from Key West, via
Missoula, where he hud been in a hospital from a wound received in the
first day's battle before Santiago.
Sergeant Seiwe has the distinction of
being the first soldier shot in his brigade in tho fierce fight on July 11.
Questioned in regard to his experiences
he said -.
"During the early morning work on
the 1st I whs acting ns Colonel Theater's orderly und body guard and whilo
the Sixth was advancing and orders
were being given to the Sixteenth to
hold themselves in readiness to advance to tlieir support, if necessary I
petitioned the Colonel to allow me to
join my company, so as to be with
them in case we were ordered to the
front. A little group of officers, among
whom were. Colonel Tbeaker and Captain Robinson, were standing talking
under, somo trees and I was holding
the colonel's horse as I made my request. He was not inclined to let me
uo and as I ropeatert my request, bullets began to hiss by ns. Somo sharpshooters off to one side had located us
and began to give us (heir attention
and settled my part of it. A Mauser
bullet struck me breaking the lower
lHine in my forearm,aud I had to walk
11 miles to the rear before I could get
it dressod.
"I am not accusing any particular
person, but somebody some day will
Ihi held up for the scorn of the entire
American nation by the Associated
Press for the unprepared condition of
the hospital corps during this battle,
and I would hate to bo in the man's
shoes that was responsible for the, useless loss of lives among our gallant
officers und brave men tlmt performed
what we have ulwuys been taught to
be an impossibility���that of capturing
an entrenched stronghold without tho
support of tlie heavy artillery.
"Wo had nine siege guns not far in
our rear and a few well placed shells
from any of them would have routed
the Spaniards and our men would not
have had to stand the deadly storm of
their bullets. We had no business at
all to carry Sun Juan heights and if
they had been defended by anyone elso
than tho. Spaniards we would never
have done it. They hud been so usod
to seo tho Cubans take to cover every
time they eanie into conflict that the
steady rush of our men demoralized
them. While I was lying at tho hospital I heard nothing but praiso for
the cool work of the regulars, and in
particular that, of my own regiment.
Everybody wus tulking about, the Sixteenth and their gallant charge and
expressing thoir contempt for tho
cowardly action of the Seventy-first of
New York, who dropped back until
they were entirely out. of range of the
enemy. Their officers also disappeared
from the scene and a bearer of orders
to their commander could only find on
second lieutenant ro deliver theni to,
and it took a longer time to find him
I than it did tlie Sixteenth to reach the
| firing line.
"The great mortality among our
officers and niin-coinniissioned men
was attributed (o tbo white stripe on
tlieir uniform which mado theni
I special targets for the sharpshooters.
Captain Lasiter and Lieutenant Sorly
of my own company were severely
wounded and all but Iwo of the noncommissioned men, and other companies fared still worse, and if the
Spaniards had used heavier calibre
guns many who were only wounded
would have been killed. I do not like
tlu- Mauser gun us well us I do the
Krag-Jorgenson.as I think they are too
small. If I had heen shot with tho
littler or even the Snringfield my arm
would have been torn off instead of
only the hone broken, and many others
who nre on tho road to recovery aro us
lucky as I am. It was the wish of ull
the boys thut they wonld hi) allowed to
return hero after their return from
Cuba and I know thoso that receivo
furloughs will come, so wo may expoct
them to be dropping in from now on
quite regularly. "
Sheriff und Attorney Tulk of  the Cor-
bett-McCoy Contest.
Buffalo, Aug. 18.���The commission
of ministers recently appointed to
visit the district attorney and sheriff
to tender assistance in their efforts to
prevent the proposed contest between
McCoy and Corbett. visited those
officials lust night.
"I assured them thut I would stop
it," said tho sheriff when spoken to.
"You etui say for me thut there are no
' ifs and ands' about it. If I am
sheriff this fight will not be pulled off
in Cheoktowuga or any other section
of the eountry.''
"What of the erection of Ihe club
house by the Hawthorne club?"
"It cuts no figure. This fight will
not go on.''
District Attorney Kanift said :
"I can not say what tho sheriff will
do, bnt I can repeat what the sheriff
has so well said. This fight will not
take place while I am district attorney. ''

His Becord���Teirible Accident at
Treat .River Bridge-
Contract for a Tunnel on the Northern
Light Group Awarded.
At a meeting of the directors of the
Bright Prospects Mining & Development company, held on Mondny last
in the eity, a contract was let to Mr.
J. W. Wright for the driving of a
500 foot tunnel on the Northern Light
group of the company at Forty Nine
creek. The work has already been
commenced, and according to present
appearances and indications the whole
tunnel will run in ore, and will givo a
depth of 400 feot or over on the ledge.
So fur by former workings two con
tacts, havo been uncovered, and the
main ledge has been found and prospected ovor three claims of the company, thus giving them tbis ledge as
well as t*re TORtawr-now- tietiifr Worked,
which Assure runs the full length of
one claim and on a portion of another.
Tho lead now under development
has every appearance of being a truo
fissure cutting the main ledge and
showing at seventy feet a wall abso
lutely perpendicular; it has been dis
covered up the mountain over 500 feet
abovo all former discoveries, having
thero as elsewhere on the surface a
width of 80 inches. The assays at the
70 foot depth show an aveiage of over
$00 in gold, with tho copper that at 35
feet ran threo nnd one-half per cent,
reduced to a mere showing.
Many persons have examined the
property of late giving the most favorable reports in every instance, and the
prospectors in that district speak of it
as one of the best showings of the Nelson district. The company has lately
registered under tho new companies
act with a reduced capital of 500,000
shares of $1 each ; and bringing the
company under the speciully limited
liability clauses of that act. Steps aro
being taken to securo tho building of
a trail up Forty-Nine croek on the
lower levels for the accommodation of
ull properties und so give a much
easier grade than is found on tho one
now travelled.
Victoria, Aug. 18.���(Special to The
Miner)���Matters political are evolving
themselves but slowly, and thero has
been no definite addition made to the
cabinet today. Yesterday, however,
Dr. R. E. McKeclinie, representative
of Nanaimo City, was sworn in as a
member of tho executive council without a portfolio. Dr. McKeehnio was
born in Brookville,Ontario, and graduated at McGill University, being gold
medallist of his year.
There has been considerable speculation as to who will be appointed
minister of mines in Mr. Somlin's
cabinet. It is generally concoded that
this post should be filled by one of the
members from tho Kootenay, Mr.
Hume, the Nelson candidate, is generally spoken of as likely to be offered
this portfolio. This rumor has been so
persistent that your correspondent has
been at some troublo to verify it. Tho
result of enquiry in responsible quarters is that Mr. Hume probably will be
asked to act as the new ministor of
mines. In fact, your correspondent is
in a position to say, that while no announcement to this effect has yet been
made, the appointment may be con-
tideutly - expecteii tomorrow,..or next
dav at latest.
It is rumored that ex-Premier Turner and his associates intend to appeal
to Ottawa on the subject of their dismissal by Lieutenunt Governor Mclnnes, but it has beeii impossible to
find any foundation for tho report. It
is extremely doubtful that the ex-
premier ever had such an intention,
but it is tolerably certain that suoh nn
action, if evor contemplated, has now-
been dropped.
There was a terrible tragedy here
yesterday which resulted in the loss
of several lives. A loaded train of the
Union Colliery Coal company went
over the Trent river bridge, owing to
tho giving way of a span. The traiii
was precipitated from a height of
nearly 150 feet. Alfred Walker, engineer, Alexander Malado, brakemuu,
Richard Nightingale and William
Work, who were employed on the
bridge, were killed, as were also two
Japenese. The fireman, Hugh Grant,
had his leg broken, and Miss Home
and Miss Grieves wero seriously injured. Matthew Piercy succeeded in
jumping from the train in time and
sustained no damage.
Been Invented   Which   Adds
the Speed of the Horse.
Thero is u new racing saddle wliich
has been used surreptitiously in several
races and has proven a success. The
uso of this saddle is likely to produce
many surprises in sporting circles, us
it apparently develops great and unsuspected speed in a horse us yet*
without a record. It is likely to make
a fortune for its owner, if ho can successfully keep it a secret. This saddlo
is to ull appearances an ordinary light
weight racing saddle, exactly like uny
other saddle. But it is furnished with
an electrical appliance which is calculated to produce animation in any old
plug. Speed is involuntarily produced
by simply turning on a magnetic current. As the shock chases up and
down the spine and down into the legs
and up into tlie brain of the horso tlie
tingling sensations give bim ambitious
thrills that greatly increaso his speed.
This current can bo manipulated by
the jockey at his discretion, and tbo
horso thus becomes an electrical machine impossible to beat.���Tho Empire.
Northport, Aag. 18 ���A gentleman
about to leavo here for England will
take with him when he goes a dozen

commonly known as the chipmunk.
These little animals are to be presented

thoy not* having any of this variety of
squirrel. Mr. Edwin Durrant of
Rossland is sending thc little animals,
and at tho present time the woods in
this vicinity are being scoured for
the little nut crackers.
London, Aug. 18.���The Pull Mall

tho extraordinary action of the Germans iu assisting the fight of General
Augusti from Manila, saying:
"This Manila incident is uncommonly nigh a flagrant breach of neutrality und is certain to he regarded as

Elsewhere will bo fouud a special
despatch from Victoria j-dving the
welcome news that, while it hns not
yet been announced thnt Mr. J. Pred
Humo is to be minister of mines, yot
there will be but a short delay before
the member for the metropolis of the
Kootenays attains cabinet rank. This
iB as it should be. With the exception of Mr. Kellie who is a candidate
for the speakership, Mr. Hume is the
only West Kootenay representative in
the new houso who can claim that
parliamentary experience and knowledge of procedure that is one of the
essentials in a' cabinet minister. Parliamentary experience is not, however,
the only or even the chief claim that
Mr. Hume has to a seat in the cabinet, and more especially to the portfolio of mines. Brilliant oratory is
not needed is such a position. There
aro more substantial requirements.
The Rossland Miner in its lust issuo
describes forcibly and accurately the
sort of man we need for the position.
It says, "What is wanted for this important position is a man who has
grown up, so to speak, with the mining interests of the province, and who,
through long residence, is in close relations with the men who mine, and
who knows to a nicety just what
measures will be necessary for the
fostering and development of British
Columbia's most important industry.
He should be a man who is so acquainted with tho topography of the
mining section of the province that he
will know just where trails, roads and
railways could bo constructed to best
subserve the interests of the mining
portion of the community. In this
position a man of business, of affairs,
nnd of practical, everyday knowledge,
and not a dreamer or mere theorist is
required.'' The above quotation not
only describes just what the province
needs, but it is also an accurate description of Mr. Hume and his qualifications. It is true that the above
article referred to Mr. Martin, as we
discovered with some surprise on reading to the end, but that does not alter
the force of our contention that in
choosing Mr. Hume, the premier puts
the right man in the right, place. Mr.
Hume is an old timer here. Ho was
in.the country long before Rossland
was ever heard of, or for the matter
that, long hefore Mr. Martin left the
North West Territories, nor has his
residence in Kootenay been in vain.
On the contrary, he has been very
successful in business aud shows his
confidence in tho country, by reinvesting hore everything he makes, and there
is every reason to expect that he will
administer the affairs of his department with the same success that he
has administered his own.
This appointment is not only a tribute to Mr. Hume personally, but it is
nlBO that direct recognition of the importance of Kootenay which has hitherto beon denied. Por the lirst time
West Kootenay gets cabinet representation, and for tho first timo she can
boRBt of a resident cabinet minister.
Long rango government from Victoria
for the benefit of the island is at an
end, and West Kootenay will at lust
got tho attention that her importance
and resources demand. All those who
supported Mr. Humo in the recent
arduous strugglo against Mr. Farwell,
have uow good cause to congratulate
themselves on their respective shares
in obtaining such a signal contribution
to tho future prosperity of the Kootenays.
We have previously had occasion to
draw attention to the very insufficient light that has latterly beon afforded
by the electric light plant thut is supposed to illuminate the city. When
the discussion on the by-law for the
purchase of this plant was in progress, the public were told what au
excellent and powerful plant it was,
and that any complaints that might
justifiably have been laid against tho
plant last full, would no longer ho deserved. It is with regret that we ob
serve that the promised improvement
is conspicuous by its absence. Without taking into consideration the future
needs of the city, the power now generated by the plant is woefully insufficient for present requirements.
Whether there has been a sudden failure in the water supply or whether
the plant is now being negligently
managed we do not know, but it is
certainly a fact that since the eity took
over their new purchase the light has
been disgracefully dim. Nelson is
paying an? enormous sum for the system, and the. least those responsible
for tho transaction cnn do is io see I
that the city is decently lighted.

There is a pood deal of activity
among mine owners, prospectors and
investors. Packers are on the trails
continuously with supplies for the
mines and individual prospectors;
saddle horses aro in demand by experts, and the mines are adding to
their forces daily.
Frank Watson of Spokane and
Judge Spinks of Vernon have been in
camp inspecting the property of the
Willa Mining company, in which
they are interested. They left hero
with A. A. Webb and J. MeFarlaue
to examine the Sellers' group,on Coffee
creek, where there has been a rich
strike, made recently that lias caused a
stampede to he started over into that
A short option has been given to
Mr. Dawson on tho Edinburgh and
Essex claims, situated below the
Wakefield mine. He has six miners at
work proving up the value of the property, and so far he is satisfied with it.
Tho crosscut tunnel on the h. H.
mine is now in (58 teet and is all in ore
with a showing iu the faco that gives
returns of $224 in gold per ton. This
is a concentrating proposition, all the
values being gold, carried in iron
sulphide. The ore closely resembles
that of tbo Rossland district, and is
tho only ledge of that kind so far
oponcd up iu the is eamp.
Ore is being brought down from the
Emily Edith mine for shipment, and
considerable speculation is being indulged in as to how this ore is going
to run ut tho smelter. For, although
the ore is known to be rich, the assay
returns have varied from 150 to 1200
ounces in silver per ton, thus leaving
much room for speculation as to just
what it will run in bulk. Work is
being pushed right along at this mine,
and it will no doubt be a continuous
Assessment work on the Brunswick
claim at the foot of Apha mountain,
has resulted in the finding of a two-
foot ledge of fine ore.
The Comstock company is driving a
new tunnel on the Kentucky Girl, one
of its group, and has already encountered a showing of three feot of ore,
similar in character to that in its
other workings. The preliminary
work is being hurried as much as possible, so as to facilitate the erection of
their concentrator.
A strike has beeu mado on tho Tre-
niont claim,one of the Stuart group, of
a six-foot ledgo of concentrating oro,
with a streak of galena from three to
six inches wide. The ownors firmly
believe they hhve found tho Comstock
vein on their proporty, and if so, they
have a nood thing.

The ultimate etl'eet of the Spnuish-
American war on the industry of silver mining will be extreme. The
Western Mining World believes that it
will lead up to the free coinage of silver or the discarding of silver us a
money metal hy the nut ions nf the
worlcf, except in ils restricted sense as
ajsnbsidiary coin. There will be to
half way business about it. It is ui t
impossible tliat the new era of expansion upon which otir country is
undoubtedly entering may lead to a
commercial activity and growth that
will make the larger use of silver im.
perative anil result in free coinage. If
it he true that the volume of business
is the measure of safety in the matter
of himi'tiiiisni then a commerce indefinitely larger than we now enjoy
mny convince all of the utility of the
joint use. of gold and silver at the
established ratio.
On the other baud if it becomes possible lo conduct the business of the nation through exchanges based on gold
values relatively smaller than now,
without distress ami with safety to
business interests, then silver will be
relegated to the buck ground and its
value full proportionately. Used in the
arts alone it will be mined only as a
by-produot. This is a crisis in the
silver milling industry. A short time
may determine a lino of action that
will elevate the white metal to the
standing it is entitled to hold in the
financial exchanges in Hie world, or
debase it beyond ihe immediate hope
of reclamation.
Seneca (1. Ketchum first darkened
the door of our editorial palace in tho
summer of 'till. We knew he was a
humorist before he made a sound. His
face was a deep rose color that always
denotes a florid complexion, and as he
sunk into the cushions of our old nrm
chair and threw his wistful gazo upward to where a bottle entitled Extra
Dry reposed underneath our Swiss
clock lie smiled us only a mnn afflicted
with humor can. At this epoch of his
plaid like career Seneca G. was suffering from great financial depression.
We assayed him nnd found that he
went (it) cents in silver, DO per cent
beer, and a trace of better days. His
stay was short in the. silvery Slocan,
bnt it wus very vivid. He wandered
away to Nelson, became chief of
police, and wound up by becoming
addicted to matrimony, which has resulted in the following sad paragraph
that he writes from Scdro, Wash :
"Please mention that thero was the

In a certain village school they were

As (he children looked good scholars,
tho inspector gave them a question,
"Now, you have told me that Elijah
put the bullock on the altar; why did
he imt water around tlie altar?"
The children looked amazed, except
one little boy, who stood up and said:
"Please, sir, to make thu gravy."���

mulcted theni in costs. Justice Wright
said while he niust absolve Earl De La
Warr of the'eharge of bribery, he must
hold that the earl had wrongly tried
to induce Mr. Hooley to correct sonic,
statements made by him in the bankruptcy proceedings and had wrongfully
promised to help Mrs. Hooley.
Mr. Hooley the judge said, ought
not to bo regarded as a mere liar,
scattering statements and accusations
without foundation ns had been suggested by the respondents, but as on
the witness stand he was reckless and
rash, inaccurate, appearing sometimes
to be suffering from illusions in a hopeless attempt, to disentangle the true
from the false his evidence was unsafe to act upon, especially in a csae
of such importance.
Mr. Bradshaw's evidence as to the
Earl De La Warr's proposal to help
Mrs. Hooley was remarkable although
Mr. Bradshaw had no cause to testify
falsely. It must bo remembered the
judgo continued, that the earl had an
overwhelming motive for obtaining
Mrs. Hooley's retraction. He could
not believe that it was out of pure
charity that the Earl Do La Warr had
promised Mrs. Hooley ��1000. On the
contrary he was forced to tho conclusion that the promise of the earl was
connected with Ihe carl's strong
and natural desire to clear himself
from Hooley's accusations. Nevertheless, ho acquitted ?Do La Warr of
the imputation of inducing Mr. Hooley
to testify falsely.
With regard to tho alleged bribery
lie could not wholly absolvo De La
Warr. With regard to tlio money tho
earl received possibly the latter believed it was received for services
rendered, or as a gift from Hooley.
Tho judge said he supposed that
was generally the way names were
paid for, but as these proceedings weiti
only intended to vindicate justice, it
would be sufficient punishment for the
Earl De La Warr's indiscretion if the
court ordered him to pay costs.
With reference to Mr. Broadley's
case Justice Wright considered him,
lie said, much more guilty in asking
Mr. Hooley falsely to say that he had
made a retraction without communicating with Earl De La Warr. Mr.
Broadley was guilty of subornation
perjury and whilo he (the judge) was
in doubt whether he ought not to deal
very differently with Mr. Broadley, ho
had concluded to make the same order
in Broadley's caso as in the Earl Do
La Warr's.
