Washington, July 21).���Nearly five
hours earnest discussion by the president and his constitutional advisors of
the nature of the response to bo made
by the government to the Spanish overtures for peace brought no conclusion,
and the subject was necessarily post
poned for further consideration to another meeting of the cabinet to be held
tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock. Such
wus the tormai statement of the situation made at the conclusion of tho
day's work by oach member of lhe cabinet who was questioned upon the subject.
A final conclusion, however, is much
nearer than this statement would seem
to indicate, uud indeed there is little
reason to doubt but thut an agreement
has been reached upon nil the substantial points at issue, uud that whieh
remains to bo done tomorrow is rather
to smooth away inequalities and adjust
some very minor points of difference
hel'ore making the answer expected by
M. Oambon, The point under discussion during the greater part of tho
meeting was what disposition should
be made of the Philippines, On the
other issues unanimity developed.
There was to be independence demanded for Cuba, Porto Rico was to
bo ceded lo the United States, coaling
stations woro to bo acquired at Guamo,
La-drone islands, and ono in tbo Caroline islands. These, propositions wero
disposed of quietly, but when it came
lo iho Philippines SCinfl diversity ot
opinion was revealed. As near as cau
lie gathered, this did not relate mainly
to tho retention of the islands. On this
proposition a majority of the cabinet
was speedily recorded in tho negative,
but regarding the broad proposition
lhat Spain was to be allowed to keep
these possessions. Other questions
of importance developed, and it was
folt* tbat these must, be answered definitely before tho subject conld bo
disposed of
There was no question as to the
propriety of demanding the coaling
stations in the Philippines. Tho perplexing problem was what form of
government should be substituted in
the Philippines, and what should be
the nature of the guarantee required of
Spain that the new government should
liberal und autonomous in character.
Theso two questions hinged on a
primary discussion whether to interfere at all by pressing a chango in tho
conditions in the Philippines. Some
members of tho cabinet* felt that the
insurgents under Aguinaldo, having
acted independently of the United
States from the very begining of the
insurrectionary movement and having
latterly shown a disposition to make
trouble for the Americans, bud no
moral claim upon tho United Statos in
settlement of the terms of peace. Ou
the. other hand, it wns urged thut the
government should lose no opportunity
of extending its principles throughout
tho world, nnd that this would be done
iu the present instance, iu requiring
of Spain a genuine autonomy for the
Philippines. On just such points us
these the discussion proceeded ull day.
Tho point thnt wns quickly established was that there should bo no
reference of any phase of the question
of the disposition of Ihe islands to any
concerted or individual action by
outside powers. Another point that
was settled, though there was no formal
ael ion taken on it, was that no protest against the continuance of military or naval operations ponding tho
peace negotiations would avail  in  the
slightest ;    that   there   would     be   uo
armistice, no suspension of operations,
nor any modification whatever of present plans until the Spanish government
had agreed to tho tonus proposed,
Incidental to the cession of Porto
Rico and tho recognition of Cubanjin-
dependence by Spain, was the, decision
that every vestige of Spanish government and authority in the Carribeiin
sea and West. Indian waters must be
removed, thus effecting ihe acquisition
iif numerous islands on whieh tho
Spanish flag flies. One of the most
important is the Isle of Pines. Beyond
this sweeping change of authority
from Spain to tho United Statos in
near-by waters which is to be effected.
Also a quit claim deed, is demanded of
all indebtedness issued by Ihe Spanish
government and charged to those
islands, so far as the United Statos is
concerned, and all commercial treaties
now existing between the Spanish government and her possessions there, and
outside powers are to be extinguished.
Somo discussion arose as to the probability   of   tho   Spanish acceptance of
the American terms. The views
differed, though it can bo stated that
several of the most influential momhors of tho clabiuet boliovod that the
terms substantially agreed on would
not be accepted by Spain at onco.
Whilo bclieviiigjthat the propositions
should in ull reason constitute the
minimum to bo considered, somo expressed tho belief that Spain would
not bo immediately disposed to roach
an ngreemont on them, and that possibly a considerable lapse of timo would
I uke place before Spain would yield,
in the meantime seeking a compromise
wliich it is asserted was not to bo entertained for a moment.
The factor in the protracted discussion of tho Philippines problem was
the absence of advices as to the existing situation there on this dato, a
point that might be of considerable
importance in the adjustment of tho
question. Tho unconfirmed despatch
reporting that Manila hnd surrendered
wus read and commented ou as indicating that definite notion, without
knowledge of the exact situation in
Manila, might causo a statement regarding conditions flint did not exist.
The formal paper orystalizing the results of the sessiou today will be reudy
for action tomorrow. A formul vote
will then he taken, and the answer of
this government is likely to be communicated to Spnin before nightfall.
The most important news received
nt the war department was the cable
from General Miles, announcing the
immense progress being mado iu
southern Porto Rico aud the capture of
Ponce. Tho navy department also received a cable announcing that tho
navy had captured the city of Pouce
and had landed the forces under General Miles. The department expects an
easy conquest of Porto Rico, and notwithstanding tho overtures of peace
mado by Spain the war will be prosecuted vigorously on that island. The
belief is general in tho war department
thnt General Merritt has lnnded in
Manila, though no cable information
to (hat effect bus been received.
The Spaniards Are  Only  Anxious  to
Avoid an Indemnity.
New York, July 29.���A despatch to
tbo Word from Madrid says:
Presidont McKinley can get peaco
within !M hours, including surreAd-Pr
of Manila aud Porto Rico, if he will
waive indemnity money and uot be
too hard in his terms respecting tho
Philippines. Tho Spanish people are
gloomily resigned to peaco, having
lost confidence in all the political
parties, their statesmen and their generals. Even the press has sadly lost
prestige because it has systematically
led peoplo to believe castles in the air
both before and during the war. So
now nil classes only care for their material interests and are anxious to escape from crippling the country's
financo hy a heavy war indemnity. It
is remarkable that the majority of the
nation seems to regard it as a foregone
conclusion that the Queen and the cabinet will accept almost any conditions
in order to secure peace.
The ministers and generals have
como to the conclusion that thoy havo
little to fear now iu the way of military insistence and discontent, which
would be formidable only if led by
Weyler or if it assumes the form of a
Chinese Rebel  Declares  Himself,
Loses Wun Gun.
% London, July 29.���The Hong Kong
correspondent of the Daily Mail says:

London, July 29. ���Tho Hong Kong
correspondent of the Times says:
Li Yip Yan, the leuder of tho rebellion in the province of Kwang Si,
has proclaimed a uow dynasty, styled
"vast progress. ' His proclamation
states bocauso a grout and pure
dynasty is weak, because the mandarins ure oppressive and bocauso foreigners aro taking Chinese territory, he
has rebelled, and thut* heuven has signified its approval by causing several
cities to fall into his hands.
According to a telegram from
Wuchou.the city of Wun Gun has been
captured and 1000 rebels havo boou
slain. The rebellion iu Kwang Si
province is almost quelled.

Rico. Pouce und its port have a population of 50,000, wliich nre now under
the American flag. Tho populace received Iho troops and saluted the flag
with wild enthusiasm.
The navy bus several prizes, including 70 lighters. The railway stock
wns partly dostroyod, but is now restored. Telgraphic communication
also is being restored. The cnble instruments wore destroyed, so I have
scut to Jamaica for otliers. This is a

the troops are in the best of health and
I anticipate no insurmountable
obstnehM-- in-the future." Th* .u-nulls
thus far have been accomplished without tho loss of a single life. Tho Span-
ish retreat from this place was precipitous, they leaving their rifles find
ammunition in tho barracks and 000

enjoying a holiday in honor of our arrival.

The Victoria Daily Times in its
iusue of the 27th inst, has an editorial
answering an article in the Vancouver
World, which criticized some utterances
of Senator Tenipleruan's. We do not
propose to touch in any way upon the
political question at issue, bul both
articles contain statements concerning
the smelting industry at Nelson which
are hardly in consonance -with facts.
The Vancouver World quotes Mr.
Croasdaiie us savin*,' that the Hall
Mines smelter here t real,id 150.000 tons
of silver-lead ore, and thereon bases
the argumont upon which wo do uot
now intend to enter. The Victoria
Daily Time*; in reply expresses the
opinion that Mr. Croasdaiie was misquoted, asserts that "tho Nelson
smelter doos not treat the galena of the
Slocan," und takes v.p the position
that not one ton of the galena ores of
tho Slocan has ever heen I rented in
Unfortunately Mr. Croasdaiie is not
at present in the city.and consequently
we have not heen aide to secure ;i con-
finiiation or 'it denial of the statement
attributed to him. Nevertheless, thoro
is probably very little doubt that the
Victoria Times is correct in saying
that Mr. Croasdaiie was misquoted, fl r
the ore from the Silver King mine
does not contain lead. The Victoria
Times, however, is quite wrong in
saying that lhe Hall Mines smeller
does not or never has treated galena
About the middle of last March the
smaller of Ithe two blast furnaces was
blown in for tho purpose of treating
galena ore from the Slocan. As the
furnace was originally designed for
the treatment ot copper ores, the attempt was looked upon to n certain extent as an experiment. The alterations
that hud been made, proved, however,
to bo effective, and the venture was n
complete, success from a smelting point
of view. The run lasted for about six-
weeks, and it large amount of silver-
lead bullion was shipped. The Miner
is not in a position to state whether
the treatment was a financial success
or not, but the gem nil impression is
that it wtis so, und that the Hall Mines
smelter intends resuming similar operations in tho mar futuro,
Times has contributed its quota to the
excitement by its disclosure of the
methods of cert iin promoters of Klondike companies. Mr, Henry Hess, a
former well known South African
journalist, the editor of the Critic, has
joined in the fray, and there is a tierce
combat being waged between him and
Mr. Harry Marks of the Financial
News. The publio prosecutor has already taken stops against some of tho
more notorious blacklegs of the
"cily." and Mr. Hess litis stated that
if ho does not investigate Hooley's
charges, he (Mr. Hess) will do so himself. Mr. Hess has already attacked
the Klondike aud Columbian Gold-
fields and its subsidiary companies, the
company which enjoys the patronage
of Premier Turner. The sequel of this '
lnsi affair has yot to be heard.
Orders by mail to nny branch will have careful ar.d prompt attention.

Des Brisay & ���o,9 Nelson,
Several complaints have reached us
about the way Ihe steamor Nelson
treats those who wish to embark from
the shores of the lake where there arc
no regular landing places. Wo are informed on the besl authority lhat"ou
several occasions parties who had gone
to examine properties near I'ilot Bay
have heen passed by hy Ihis steainer,
notwithstanding bonfires and all other
possible melius of attracting attention.
Our informant lells us that on one
occasion the steamer did not stop although he had previously notified Ihose
in charge that he would bo there, and
notwithstanding tho fact that he vigorously flagged ihe steamer, with tho
result that he had to slay on shore the
greater part of the night until the
steamer of a competing line arrived.
We arc also informed on rclial lo
authority that on ono occasion a
gentleman who had at other times
flagged the steamer in vain, embarked
in an old and rotten boat thai he happened to find on the shore aud rowed
to within about 100 yards of tho
steamer, which oven then declined to
stop. It is perhaps hardly necessary to
point out that such behavior on the
part of those in charge of tho steamer,
while invariably a source of great discomfort    and   inconvenience,   might

at tho age of 73. After having been ^
active as a physician af several hos- uj

Marquis Camilio Polavioja, who has
been called io Madrid to lend his coun-
sol in tho government  in   the   present
crisis, may he pushed to lhe front'over
(Ieneral    weylor   and     may     himself.
organize   a cabinet    instead   of   being;
minister of war   in   the cabinet of (he i
new    government.   Polavioja    is    a
strong man in many respects.    He was
born in the city of   Madrid and inherited vas! wealth from his   father, who
made his fortune in I lie trade with the
Philippnes,    The   son   was set   (o the
islands as captain   general   after (len-1
end    Blanco   was   removed   from that I
post.    It is hard to  sny which   of   lhe I
three���Blanco,    Weylor   or Ptillivicja���
proved the most merciless, The ttt ii -n
marquis entered the army in 1808, and \ W CllL IciperS
was an officer under (ieneral Campus
in Santiago dc Cuba when the Vir-
ginius affair look place. He was later
made governor of the province of Santiago dc Cuba, and lifter the ten
years' war he was elevated to the position of captain general of the island.
Ho was very popular with lhe monies
in the Philippines, and did everything
lo ndvani o Iheir interests.
What Polavieja   would   do were   he
placed at ihe head of   the   government
is a question not easy to answer. Some'
seem to think that he would   stand for!
peace, whereas others, whose  opinions i
arc of value, believe  he   would   bein
favor of   fighting the war to the bitter
ond,    Spain   at   present   regards   him
with great hope. aj LIMITED

At one period during the rebellion
thero were no less than 74 major generals and 210 brigadiers on the rolls,
which was far moro tbim there was
any use for. President Lincoln recognized tins mistake before anybodyelse,
hut he consoled himself by joking
about if. It is recalled that on ono
occasion, when one of those superfluous
generals was captured by tho enemy,
with a number of mon and horses,
somebody undertook to condole with
the president on the subject, remarking tliat the loss of the captured general's service was u great misfortune
to tlie government.
"Pooh I" replied Lincoln, "it's tho
horses I'm thinking about. I can
make another brigadier gonoral in two
minutes, hut horses are, scarce, and
cost $200 apiece.''���Kansas City

to between $800,000 and $850,000.
Tha royalty has retarded developmnt
in every way, and claims are nol
worked in consequence of it. Some

put on and so much work had been
done that it had to be continued at a
loss. Theso were worked. On some

The Spanish government will combat to the last against a cession of

would much rather sacrifice one of the
Philippine islands, contending that
Porto Rico has always been outside of
the sphere of the war.

himself wilh a gold triangle by virtue
of his rank as chief of the Philippine

It is the Cuban idea to belittlo in
evory possible manner every arm of the
Spanish service. Cavalrymen cannot
ride. Artillerists cannot lind lhe
range. Infantrymen cannot march ov
shoot. Their arms are antiquated and
their heart* is not in the flgbt. A
Cuban scout told me that if a Spanish
cavalryman galloped his horse he
would fall off; if any of llm Spanish
army heard a gunshot they would run
away. My observations have not
found this to lie a faet. however, and
I do not think: too much dependence
should be placed upon ihe prejudiced
word of tlie over-enthusiastic patriot
from across the gulf. The lime thai
wo spent on the Cuban coast showed
the Spaniards to be very alert and
ready for attack. They have an excellent signal service botli with wires
and with heliographs and {lags. The.
intelligence of our movements was evidently conveyed by this service each
day. Latteries had beeu placed at
every spot where a ship could lie
landed. Anything imt a landing in
force would bo the extremity of folly.
