Madrid, July 20.���Senor Sagnsta and
Qeneral Correa, minister of war. di -
olare that r!ie latest news from tha
Philippines is of the most favorable
oharaoter. Qaueral Oorrea's advices
indicate thai the insurgents are uow
displaying "only a lukewarm hostility
towards the Spanish troops." Captain
Qeneral Augusti sends an official despatch asserting, under date of .July 14,
while the blooitado is becoming very
strict, the enemy has lost heavily in
several recent engagements, by which
the morale of the American forces has
been weakened and the Spaniards have
been greatly encouraged."
The despatch alleges also thai the
garrison is ready to fight to the death
and that general Monet and several
officers who had escaped from Malabebo
have arrived here. Captain General
Augusti concludes as follows:
'' Modestly and without exaggeration,
which i.s contrary to my character, I
have described with loyalty the position on whioh I am concentrating all
my efforts for my country and my
king."

FROM   MANILA.
KLONDIKE  OUTPUT.
Anticipations   Disappointed���Opinion
of a Prominent Engineer.
Dawson City, Yukon, June 25, Via
Seattle, Wash., July 30.���Tho output
of the mines on the Yukon this year
which lias reached between $10,000,000
and $15,000,000 has disappointed even
the most conservative estimates of last
fall based on llie prospects then existing. One nf the most prominent civil
engineers on the Pacific coast who
spent cho winter in tiie mines said:
"Considering the fact that, less than
2000 poorly fed men bave gotten out
ihis winter almost $15,000,000, Klondike has made a showing which entitles
il lo the reputation of the greatest and
richest gravel deposit in the world.
The placer mines in California's early
days are ils only rival. The great.
riches of the bench claims on French,
Chief, Little and Big Skookum gulches
continue to bo the wonder of mining
men in Alaska. These benclies are
old river beds which have boen broken
up by an eruption of the earth. They
are a continuation of the old river
bed found near Hunker ereek, and while
little prospecting has been done it. is
thought tliey will turn out* vory well.
Eldorado and Bonanza creeks have been
proven to be all that was expected of
them."
EXTRAORDINARY DEATH.
Toronto, Out., July 20. ���John Cor-
mack,a prominent* and wealthy farmer
near Woodstock, picked up a stick to
drive his cows. He stumbled and fell
on the stick aud died from his injuries.
He was 03 years of age.
Washington, July 20.���The war and
navy departments uro now oligaged in
making all of the arrangements for
the despatch of tho Porto Rico expedition and Watson's squadron. There has
occurred one of those natural pauses
in the progress of the campaign incident to the completion of one set of
operations and the initiation of another. There being no possibility of
the receipt of news of ii great battle
or of a surrender there was less excitement and less evidence of nervous
strain than for weeks past. General
Miles' expected departure was again
deferred. The explanation given was
that there was difficulty experienced at*
Santiago in securing the naval convoy
for the expedition Tt is known however in addition thai the president
himself has restrained General MilfS
to the extent of adjuring him in earnest terms not to cnmmi.l lho_follv of
starl ing for Porto Rien .\ ;i\ ut Ihe ;
mosl comploto proparal ions.
The government h i profited v the
lessons taught by the San tinge i\pedi-
tion. Aside from the lotual loss of

American army at this stage of tho
war. Therefore it is certain that so
far us the department can prevent,
General Miles' soldiers will not run.
short of food or of lents or of the
means of transportation that were so
deflt ient at the beginning of tho Santiago movement. General Miles re
ported tins afternoon that he had with
li im ten transports which it is presumed have aboard several thousand
soldiers, all hough at least two of them
are filled with equipment.
Inquiry made at lhe navy department
to ascertain where tlie delay had arisen
in securing convoys was met with
the statement that the orders to Admiral Sampson in tbis matter wqro very
general. He was simply directed by
tho department to furnish a convoy,
and it was assumed that he would confer with General Miles as to the number and character of vessels required
for that purpose as the campaign from
a naval point of view is to be principally a laud movement the naval
officers do not boliovo a very extensive
convoy is necessary. According to tho
calculations at the navy department
Admiral Dewey's fleet at Cavite should
now be reinforced by the coast defense vessel Monterey which with her
fender and collier Brutus, has now
been about 20 days out from Honolulu. Willi the addition of this fine
and powerful monitor, Dewey will
be amply able to take care of himself
so long as the naval forces in tho
Philippines are maintaining the relative proportion tliey now occupy. However the disclosure by tho state department of the lack of foundation for lhe
sensational story of strained relations
with Germany has largely abated tho
anxiety entertained at the navy department ns to Dewey's position at Manila.
The war department was agreeably
surprised at the numbor of bids received in answer to its proposals for
transporting the Spanish now at Santiago to Cadiz. Tho terms offered by
some of the companies wero also regarded as very reasonable and as it is
desirable to terminate the present condition of affairs at Santiago at che earliest possible moment it is expected the
award will be. made immediately.
A tender from a Spanish steamship
company was a surprise to the department officials and at loast one of
thom thought it might bo good policy
for tho government to avail itself of
this offer.    Dr. Groonleaf's last roport
A Long   and Bloody Contest Expected
Bofore It Palls.
San Praucisco, July 20. ���A Chronicle
despatch from Cavite dated Juno 23
says:
"Iu case of the expected bombardment of Manila the area to which the
Spanish may retire will be limited to
the American and insurgents lines
surrounding tho oity. There may
come the struggle, for the Spaniards
have burrowed entrenchments and fortified hills and knolls for a final stand.
It is known that evory energy i* bent
within the city to prepare for the final
struggle. The people aro exhorted by
the clergy and military authorities and
their hopes aro br.oyod up by false reports as to relief from Spain and Spanish triumphs in tho Wost Indies and
along tho Atlantic, coast. Augusti is
credited with an assertion that he can
muster 150,000 troops, no ono believes
that he can marshal 20,000. They
seem as nearly ready for the conflict
as the material in the hands of the
Spanish con make it. It is freely pre-
dioted that there will not be a blood
less capitulation of Manila, bnt it *s
feared that there will be a long cuid
bloody resistance.

SPANISH WOUNDED.
Now York, July 20.���Word has been
received in this city that Goneral
Garcia is dead. The last word directly
received by the Cuban junta in this
city from Genoral Garcia was dated
before Santiago, July 11. It was a
cable message and slated briefly that
ho was well and that the progress of
events was satisfactory. At that timo
Garcia was to tho west of Santiago
guarding the approaches from expected
reinforcements to tho city. Genoral
Garcia was ono of tho oldest aud
ablest of Cuban revolutionists. Admiral
Sampson spoke in high tonus ot his
soldierly and intelligent bearing wheu
he went* on board the flagship. His
special field of operations for the past
two years has been the province of
Santiago where he successfully evaded
tho superior Spanish forces sent out to
defeat and capture him.
Calixto Garcia was in his 00th year
and was regarded by tho Cuban insurgents as ono of their most intrepid soldiers. In the ton years war his skill,
bravery and energy won him continued
promotion until ho received a general's
star. In tho action of 1874 Garcia was
surrounded by Spanish troop*; and
rather than surrender he shot, himself
through the cliiu with suicidal intent.
He recovered uud was sent to Soi iu.
He was released in 1877 when peace of
San Juan was declared.
Garcia at ono timo set out for New
York aud organized an expedition to
invade Cuba. Ho landed in Santiago
do Cuba but was taken a prisoner a
second time. He eluded tho vigilance
of the prison guards in Spain one night
after a 15 years imprisonment and fled
to England, Garcia was the promoter
of the Ilawkin's expedition wliich left
this city January 1800 with 000 men
and a large quantity of supplies and
ammunition. The vessels sank. Ho
next fitted out the Bermuda which was
seized upon the evening of her departure in February 1896 by a United
Slates niarshall and his deputies. Garcia was arrested and released in $2500
bail. Ho at* onco mado another start
and landed in Cuba several days boforo
the day sot for his trial in this city.
For the last two years he has beon engaged in conducting the. oampaign for
the Cubans against Spain in the province of Santiago do Cuba.

VICTORIAN  ORDER  OF NURSES.
Tho Victorian Order of Nurses in
which Lady Aberdeen is the leading
spirit, was founded in commemoration
of Her Majesty's diamond jubilee in
1897, it being Her Majesty's exraess
wish that celebrations marking the
60th yoar of her reign should be associated with the relief of the sic!*; nud
suffering. There is a kindred society
in Great Britain called "Queen Victoria's Jubilee Institute for Nurses,"
which was founded by Her Majesty in
1887 and endowed by her with the gift
of ��70,00(1 sterling.
The object of the society is to train
district nurses who can visit the needy
sick in their own homes, but a small
foo being asked, while in necessitous
oases the attendance is 'given free of
charge. The. amount of good thus done
to those who need it most is incalculable. How often does the physician
find among his poorer patients that
his orders "are misunderstood, nntl
that for want of practical knowledge
of nursing his patient's recovery is
retarded and in .some cases altogether
prevented ?
Lord Lister, ex-pivsidenv of the
British 'Association for the Advancement of Science, ami who is well
known as the founder of modern antiseptic surgery, has endorsed the objects
of tho society. Speaking at Montreal
Inst August, he said : " Her Exoellenoy
Lady Aberdeen has this matter much
at* heart, and I am save that if her
idoa of tlie Victorian Order of Nurses
cm be carried out. with due regard
to the efficient training of nurses, aud
also to the efficiency of their supervision, the matter would commend itself
to all medical men.''
Miss Florence Nightingale, whose
name has been famous throughout tho
world for nearly half a century in connection with nursing, commends this
scheme in a letter to Lady Aberdeon.
She says that the improvement in hospital training "has been brought about
first by making the hospital a 'home,'
fit for good young women, educated
young women, to live in and pursue
tlieir calling in ;and next by raising the
character of nursing into a genuine
calling by which nurses can earn an
honorable livelihood. " This is one of
tho central ideas Jof the Victorian
Ordor of Nurses. The members sally
forth daily to make their rounds,spending as a   rule lml a short  time ttl each
place, They cook the invalid's food,
or seo that it is properly cooked, and
make sure that the doctor's instructions with regard to medioine, diel
ventilation, etc., are properly carried
out.
Nurses belonging to this order do
not  aud are not  intended to compete
with trained hospital nurses ill private
nursing, nor will the doctor lind thom
any thing but a help. They are bound
by the regulations of the society to ael
only under the directions of the doctor iu attendance, and are forbidden to
attend patients who can afford to
employ n hospital nurse on the usual
terms. Nothing but good can result
from Lady Aberdeen's efforts in this
direction, and sho bears with her the
blessings andj good wishes of the
peoplo of Canada.
iiiiiii:;: nl her utterances, some remarks
of Sir Walter Besants' ou tho subject
arc commented on. Sir Walter seems
to have been rather led away by his
enthusiasm and to have made some
what extravagant statements. There is
one statement, however, in the article
which claims every Englishman's
attention. It appears that friends of
some of the passengers of the ill-fated
La Bourgoyne went to the company's
office at Manhattan, and there de-
! nounced the company, and declared
thar if the passengers had trusted
themselves to English ships tbey would
have been alive today,as English sailors
would have saved the women and children lirst.
Commenting ou this the Brooklyn
Eaglo says: "The feeling that Englishmen ean be trusted draws the two
nations nearer together and emphasizes
the difference between the Saxon and
Liliu rue;. An alliance of interest
baiod on confidence and kinship will
stand strains that would rupture a
co ilil ion between olien races." While
the English nation has a reputaiton
like that she need have no fear for tho
I'ui are. A nation that can ho trusted
will, like the individual, never lie
lacking iu (rue friends, and now lhat
the American nation is beginning to
recognize this, as well as that* the
ai'tnes and ideals of the two nations
aro not conflicting, the alliance is to
all intents and purposes an existing
fact, without the formal co-operation
of diplomatists and governments.

ANGLO SAXON UNITY.
Some amusing and instlactive remarks on the proposed Anglo-American alliance are to be found iu a recent
article in the Brooklyn Eagle,in which,
Nelson has had a good deal of practice lately in the art of decoration, and
she showed last night that she has not
failed to profit by it. The illuminations and decorations on Baker street
were very pretty,Chinese lanterns being
tastefully taken advantage of with the

MINING NOTES.
At Now Denver the payment of $7600
cash was made hist Thursday lo ,I. I'.
Harris by H.M.Sandiford for ihe Northwest Mining Syndicate, and the Boatswain is now being worked in thorough
mining style, the aim being to develop
the property nnd shape out the oro body
before taking it out in great quantities. In the bottom of one of the shafts
the ore chute is 12 inches thick, ami
iu all the openings it is from three
to 10 inches in thickness. A tunnel liaH
beon started from the level lo run 200
or H00 feel to tap the lead at a much
greater depth, Ore has been taken out
right nlong, but only in the courso of
development.
The Mollie Hughes, another property
lately opened up by the syndicate on
a $40,000 bond, is proving of the greatest
importance, and its development is
being watched with interest by mining experts. The ore is found in a continuous strong lodge that outcrops for
fully threo miles, but the value of
the ore varies greatly. A trial shipment lately made netted the owners
$il(i por ton, but other oro that runs
ovor $100 in gold alone has since boen
taken out.

Gram  From Steamships.
An interesting public exhibition was
lately given in tho Albert* dock. London, of a comparatively new and very |
rapid method of transferring bulk
wheat from a ship into barges. The
vessel Chicago, whioh belongs to the
London Grain Elevator company, and
is fitted with pneumatic machinery
invented by Mr. F. E. Dtiekham, of
Millwall, was moore.l alongside the
grainship Miunewaska, and from this
ship's lower hold thu grain was delivered into tho barges at .the rate of
one hundred and thirty-five tons per
hour.
Tho chief feature of the, apparatus
I.s a ^cylindrical rank, which i.s partly
exhausted of air, from which a number
of floxiblo .suction tubes can be carried:,
