Madrid, Sept. 14.���In the  Cortes today   General   Primo   do   Rivera   demanded an inquiry into his administration  of  the  Philippines  and  in  so
doing he said tho attacks of Count Al-
menas were only "fit for tlio mouth of
a    miserable   slanderer."    Count   Al-
! menus was endeavoring to  reply when
| Senor Sagasta read tho decree prorogu-
I ing the Cortes.    Count Alniensas   and
j General Rivera, separately approached
| the president in a hostile manner and a
duel   is   expected.    Premier    Sagasta
afterwards   read   the   decree   in   the
chamber of deputies.
It is expected that tho Spanish peaco
commissioners will bo appointed without delay. A painful impression has
been caused horo by the Statement
made by tho Pais, saying that the
United Stales intends to demand $20,-
ooo.ooo indemnity in behalf of American citizens who have suffered through
the insurrection of Cuba. Tho Span
ish peace coniinisioncrs will strongly
oppose such a claim, but fears prevail
that tho United States will become
pitiless and press its advantage to the
utmost.
THE EVACUATION COMMISSION.
San Juan, Island of Porto Rico, Sept.
114.���Tlie  United   States-l\vrto Rican
! commission   mot   this  morning.    The
j reply  of   tho  Spanish  commissioners
It. is generally believed thai Sunday's  getting forth thoir position, in accord-
flre   was   of incendiary   origin.     Tbe ! mjCe    with     the     instructions   from
police   havo arrested .luck Sheppard, a | Madrid, was received last night.   It i
heavy spars started her deck load of
lumber and in Iho heavy sea she soon
began to strain and afterwards sprang
a leak. Getting into the trough of the
sea, heavy waves came aboard which
shook the cargo still more until by
noon of September 4, she was water
logged and a wreck. The crew, all of
whom had long before taken to the
rigging, set a signal of distress and
just before suusct the Marengo hove in
sight and discerned her signals. The
ship had drifted considerably during
the gale, so that when the Marengo
came in sight, sho was in latitude
48.51 north and  longitude  34.22 west.
The work of rescue by the crow of
tho Marengo began at once and although a heavy sea with a mass of
wreckage hanging over the sido made
the work particularly dangerous, seven
men wero at longth taken off, while
Captain Dahl, with tho balance of the
crew, managed to launch the only remaining boat.
Tho America had to be abandoned as
a derelict and the crew were safe on
board tho Marengo. The America was
a full rigged ship and was 12 years
old. Her home port was Christiana,
Norway. Tho crew will be cared for
by the Norwegian consul in this city
and later sent to thoir homes.

THE CUBAN "GOVERNMENT."
Santiago do Cuba, Sept. 14.���The
council of the so called provisional government of tho republic of Cuba,represented by Sonor Bartolomo Masso,
president; Senor Mondez Capote, vico
president; and Senor Font, Senor
Aleinan and Senor Moreno do la Torre,
secretary, mot at Santa Cruz on September i, and formulated a manifesto
to the Cuban people with an ordor to
the military commanders of the Cuban
army, both" of which havo beon promulgated. The manifesto, which is an
elaborate document, touches on tho
history of the movement for Cuban
independence and the principles upon
which the Cuban pooplo have fought
for thoir liberty. It proceeds in part
as follows:
"Theso considerations havo convinced us that wo should not dissolve
and that the powers we havo received
its an assembly elected by the people
under arms, should not vanish. On
tho contrary we fool that we should
remain as a nucleus and guide for
those who havo vested such power
in us. We havo, therefore, decided to
call together another assembly which
will determine our future course. "
In conclusion the manifesto gives a
number of reasons why the proposed
assembly should be convened and
some government chosen, not with tho
character of a government as yot,
ibut as an official representation of
those Cubans who fought against
Spain and of thoso who. in tho citios
under Spain's control and in foreign
countries have helped and supported
thom.

Reasons Why He Decided Not to Delay
Battlo Beforo Santiago.
Washington, Sopt. 14.���General
Shaffer's report of the campaign which
terminated in the fall of Santiago, has
been mado public. He briefly recounts
the organization of tho expedition and
its embarkation and then devotes the
main body of tho roport to the active
operations about Santiago. Referring
to Iho attack ou Santiago General
Shafter says:
"The preparations wero far from
what I desired thom to be, but we
wero in a sickly climate, our supplies
had to be brought forward by a narrow wagon road, which the rains
might at any timo render impassable,
fear was entertained that a storm
might drive the vessels containing our
stores fo sea, thus separating us from
our base of supplies,and, lastly, it was
reported that Goneral Pando, with
8000 reinforcements for the enemy,
was en routo from Mazanilla and expected in a fow days. Under these
conditions I determined to give battle
with delay."
While ill a state of delirium, presumably superinduced by a period of
dissipation, a man named Joseph
Pepin, a native of French Canada, attempted to commit suicido at the
Poorman mine yesterday morning.
Pepin, who was a bricklayer, worked
for some time in this city for Contractor Lapointe, his last job being
on the Lawrence block. He left the'
employ of Mr. Lapoiuto about ten
days ago aud, it is said, began drink
ing. On Tuesday ho went out to do
some work ou the Poorman. He did
not work in the mcruing but began his
task in the afternoon. Towards tho
end of tho day, he showed signs of
mental abberation, bnt attracted little
attention.
It is well-known that dolirinm
tremens is not so much the result of
excessive drinking as it is of sudden cessation either through deprivation of or inability to assimilate the
poison. There was no liquor to bo got
anywhere near the mine and the mau
became deranged through want of it.
When the days work was done, he
went with others to the sleeping ap-
partmeuts and lay down. About four
o'clock he got out. of his bunk and securing a pocket kai;.. he stabbed hia
stomach, the blade making a cut over
three inches long and penetrating to
the liver. The man was by this time
a raving maniac aud the miners aroused from their sleep, found hpi
rolling on the ground. They seized
and tried to quiet him, but found it
difficult to hold him. Word was sent
immediately to Dr. La Ban, in the
city but he being absent, his partner,
Dr. Forin went out to the mine.
When Dr. Forin arrived ho found
the man in a very exhausted state and
still ravine and struggling. The
wound in the abdomen was a very bad
one. The struggles of tho man had
forced the liver, one lobe of wliich had
beeu severed, out through the aperture,
and dust, dirt and straw had got into
the wounds from contact with the
earth.
The man presented a distressing
sight and Dr. Foriii had uever been
called to a worse case. The doctor did
what he could to relieve the sufferer
and hurried him to town, where he
arrived about 2 o'clock, and was taken
immediately to Miss Crickmay's hos
pital. The patients strength still held
out and ho was put under the influence of narcotics. The protruding
liver was then thoroughly cleansed with
antiseptics and the wounds stitched
hy Dr. La Bau who had joined Dr.
Forin, bnt it is not probable that the
man will livo. Ho was insensible for
a long time and the medical men wero
of the opinion that he would not survive the night.
The unfortunate man has no relations in this part of the country. He
has a daughter who is married aud
living iu the oast,, hut this i.s all tho
information could be got. Ho was a
good workman but was addicted to
periodical sprees the last of which
brought him to this lamentable pass.

INSURANCE   KATES.
Rates of Insurance are so high in
this provinco that thoro are many who
cannot afford to pav thein and consequently men who would insure if the
rates wero reasonable prefer to go along
without insurance. In a eity such as
Nelson, where the wator pressure is
high and the supply plentiful a Are
like that which swept away half of
New Westminster eould not occur.
Water mains are laid in all directions
along the streets and hydrants have|been
placed at frequent intervals so that a
fire could be easily fought.
The insurance companies in arranging their schedules evidently have not
taken these matters into consideration
as the rates nre still vory high hero.
In view of this fact a system of municipal insurance, which Tho Miner long
ago advocated, would not only be acceptable to those who are not insured
now, but to those who already carry
policies and pay heavy premiums upon
them. An intimation to the companies that if they do not roduce their
rates, a municipal scheme of insurance
will be" adopted would soon bring rates
down where thoy ought to be.
Forbes George Vernon, with the
proud title of agent general for British Columbia in London, was never in
his office when he was wanted. Now
Forbes Georgo Vernon bas no ollice to
be absent from. The governmeul has
very properly removed him. Among
tho fow good things that President
Cleveland did was to give to the world
the axiom "Public ollice is a public
trust." Forbos George proceeded on
the assumption that public ollice was
a private snap the pay of which was
scarcely adequate to reward him for
ornamenting the position. On gonoral
principles Forbes George should have
beeu dispensed with long ago us a lay

The remark of tho somewhat contemptuous and plain spoken Englishman that Canada was "a blasted
wooden country," had somo truth in
it. Applying the expression to the
towns and cities of the interior and
especially to those of this province,
the term "wooden" is peculiarly applicable. Many of them aro wooden
from one end to the other because most
of the buildings are temporary and the
result of speedy construction from the
material most plentifully
These temporary structures

not till then, are buildings contracted

rose out of hor ashes a solidly built

time, but now boasting many costly
blocks of brick, stone aud iron. Westminster will probably be added to the
list. Favorably situated on the
Fraser, with unobstructed outlet to the
sea, Wostminster has always been an
important point as the contro of the
fishing industry of tho Fraser and
adjacent waters. As yet the fisheries
are in their infancy so far as exploiting them to their full is concerned,
and in time they will become, with
the mines and timber, of unestimablo
value as a source of wealth to the
province. Aud when that time comes

MANUFACTORIES OP LEAD.
The letter which wo published tho
other day from Dr. Langhammer, M.
E., advocating tho establishment of
lead Industries in this province, is one
desorviug not only tho attention of
tho owners of lead prod doing nroper-
ties, but also of the government. This
provinco is most favorably situated for
the snecoss of the industry which Dr.
Langhammer shows to be so desirable 11
oue in tho economic progress of tho province. Great bodies of gulona have been
found in all parts of tho province and
loads aro being extonisvoly worked
everywhere. The product finds its wny
out of the country aud all the profit of
its mannfacturo. goes to aliens. It is
not creditablo that we export the raw
material aud import the finished product, when all the requisits for manufacture are at our command, or shortly
will be. Cheap coal is tho main consid-
A Canard Disposed of���Collapse of the
Turner Party���Bostock  Com ins;.
A Miner representative had a talk
yesterday afternoon witli Mr. C. A.
Gregg, of the Victoria Times, who arrived in the city from Rossland on
Tuesday evening.
Mr. Gregg is combining business
with pleasure in his trip through the
Kootenays, the question of the organization of the Liberal party in the interior of the Province occupying a
part of his attention. Mr. Gregg's
attention was drawn to an article
which recently appeared in the Rossland Miner to tho effect that an alteration in the Federal representation of
this provinco was imminent. This
statement was characterized by Mr.
Gregg as a fabrication. Ho had heard
nothing of the change nor had Mr.
Bostock. who would, presumably, have
had somo notice of tho matter. Thus
the announcement may be dismissed
as having no foundation, though such
additional representation for the Kootenays may be in many respects desirable.
Referring to provincial politics, Mr.
Gregg considered that tho Turner
party had absolutely collapsed, their
defeat being much more complete than
tho election returns would indicate. It
hns been known for sonic time that
Colonel Baker i.s leaving the province,
and now Mr. Turner has thrown up
the sponge. The ex-premier bus
leased his house, and is about to
depart for the old country whero he
will in future reside. Thero is no
doubt about this, as Mr. Turner has
himself authorized the statement.
Mr. Gregg considered the determination of tho conservative party to
fight the next election on party lines
as a tactical blunder, for tho result
would be that tho present administration would pull tho entire liberal vote,
and also attract the numerous conservative supporters of Messrs. ttom- j
Iin and Cotton.
Speaking of  the present administration, Mr. Gregg said  that tho Hon. ,1. '
Pred Hume   had   surprised   even   his
friends by the.   masterly way  ho  was ,
already   managing   the   affairs of   his!
department, Mr. Humo is  displaying, :
as Tho Minor predicted ho would.'grent
acumen and  administrative capacity,
while tho weakness his opponents used
to profess to discern, is conspicuous by
its   absence.    Mr.   Hume   is   proving
himself  to  be   the   best   minister  of!
mines tho province) has ever had.
It is tho intention of Mr. Gregg to
remain in Nelson until Saturday.when
be will bo joined hore by Mr. Hewitt
Bostock, M. P. On Monday or Tues- [
day next woek tho pair will proceed .
to Kaslo, going out by way of Sandon and Nakusp.

Eratino Business Transacted---Two New
Ministers Were Ordained-���Large
Grants   Sanctioned
At the ordinary meeting of Presbytery of Kamloops held yesterday morn-
ing'iu the Presbyterian church, Mr.
Stewart, of Kamloops wns the retiring
moderator of the past year. After
reading (he minutes of previous meetings, Mr. Stewart stated that it was
in order lo elect a new moderator;
whereupon Mr. D. Campbell of Quesnelle was, on motion, unanimously
elected moderator for the ensuing
year.
Dr. Robertson, the superintendent of
missions, thanked the meeting for j
their resolution of sympathy, offeied
through the clerk. On motion of Mr.
Frew, Messrs. dandier, Stewart,
(ilasl'ord.'and McLeod, who officiated
as clerk, together with the mover,were
appointed a committee to nominate
the standing committees of the year.
The moderator asked for the returns
to overtures sent to the general assembly. These were presented by the
clerk, and action was taken on the
various items.
Among Iho more important items
was the caso of the Rev. J. G. Duncan of Fort Steele, of the United Presbyterian church of Scotland, who had
applied to be admitted to he a minister
of this church. The assembly having
given their sanction, his namo was
admitted to the roll.
In the case of Mr. Boyle it was decided to prescribe a course of study,
preliminary to his admission to the
ministry. The examinations will he
conducted by the Home Mission committee.
In the afternon session, certificates
of licensure of Messrs. Wallis and
Munro were read; when the Presbytery proceeded to the examination of
these/gentlemen prior, to their ordination. The examinations were sustained, and the ordination was set
for yesterday evening at H p. in., the
moderator to preside, the Rev. J. A.
('leland of Sandon. to preach, Dr.
Robertson to address the candidates,
and the Rev D. (1. McQueen the
people. Several applications for loans
from the church and manse building
fund were taken up, and after consideration, were referred to a committee
to be reported on tomorrow. The clerk
and the mission convener were appointed a committee to consider till
such applications made between meetings of Presbytery.
The deputation appointed at the last
meeting to visit Grand Forks made
their report. The Home Mission report
was then taken and claims aggregating
18101.60 were passed. The Presbytery
then adjourned till 8 p. m.
ORDINATION SERVICE.
The meeting last night was opened
with devotional exercises conducted
by the moderator. The usual proclamation concerning the life and doctrine of the candidates having been
made, and no objections offered, public
worship was proceeded with. The
sermon was preached by tho Rev. J.
A. Oleland, based on the words "The
Son of Man has Come to Seek and to
Save that which was Lost. "
The candidates were then called forward, and answered the usual questions satisfactorily, after which, by
prayer, and the laying on of the hands
of the Presbytery, Messrs. Wallis and
Munro were proclaimed ordained as
ministers.
The newly ordained candidates were
then suitable counselled by Dr. Robertson, and, then, after au address hy
Mr. McQueen the ordination service

OUB OTTAWA LETTER
A Glance Back at Conservative Administration.
SOME   TORY  BOODLING
The Hon. Q* E. Foster's Trip to tlie West.
His  Prophetic  Powers���Major
Walsh Interviewed-
Ottawa, Sept. 10.���in the chorus of
congratulation and endorsation which
has been called forth by the success of
tho government's efforts to bring about
Imperial penny postage it is pleasant
to find a word of approval from a
distinguished member of the opposition, Sir Adolphe Oaron, postmaster
general, in the late government, says
that ho always approved of Imperial
peny postage but could not see how
Canada could afford it. Possibly if the
money spent during his regime in paying contractors for carrying mails had
been $100,000 less, as it now is under
Mr. Mulock, and the other leakages
stopped, as they are now, the ex postmaster general would have been as
well ablo to bring about the reform as
his successor was. But the minister
who was responsible for the expenditure of $112,700 during the elections of 1892 in that sectiou of Quebec
under his management, money which
by his own confession was "milked"
from the public contracts, ,'otild not* be
expected to troublo himself about the
minor economies of bis department.
REMINISCENCES.
Thoro were other departments also,
where public works might have heen
carried out, and needed reforms
effected, but* for the scandalous looting
of the public treasury, which made
the record of the late administration a
bye-word among the nations. It is
not a pleasant, task to recall our
country's shame, but when the opposition press and platform speakers,
from the ex-cabinet ministers down',
presist in talking about extravagance
and boodling, and increased expenditure, it becomes the duty of public
journals to remind the electors of the
past. They should not be allowed to
forget the record of the department of
railways and canals when the 14 mile
branch of the St. Charles railwav cost
$1,760,000 instead of $186,000 as estimated, and six miles of the Tay canal
cost $470,128 instead of $182,660 as
estimated, since earning abnnt $100 a
year towards the $2500 that it* costs the
country annually to maintain them.
Then there is the Galops Rapids channel in tho Cornwall canal costing
double the contrast prico, and, on the
admission of tho minister in parliament is even then useless; and the
Sheiks island dam in the same locality
upon which jiloo.OOO was expended tind
then the work stopped. At least a
dozen other transactions equally wasteful, might be quoted in this department alone, when it was under the
guidance of Hon. John Haggart.
PUBLIC WORKS SCANDAL.
Turning to the public works department the detractors of Hon. J. Israel
Tarto, when indulging in petty criticism of expenditures necessitated by
his tour of inspection this summer
through tho east, might with advantage recall the Langevin Block
scandal where the now departmental
block in this city which was to cost
loss than $500,00 actually cost over
$1,000,000, the roof alone costing as
much as the original estimate for the
whole building. Tho Conuolly-Mc-
Greevy frauds, in wliich tho country
lost $700,000, the result of a straight
steal, is another example, and a painful
atendant circumstance must not be forgotten, that a very comfortable percentage of tho boodle found its way
eventually into the ('conservative election fund. The Curran bridge scandal in whieh the bridge built over tho
Lachine canal iu Montreal eventually
cost $4110,000, the original estimate was
but* $1211,000 and the government's own
court of inquiry decided that $1(10,000
would be ample, so that tho country
was left $270,000 poorer, though the
investigation in the public accounts
committee showed that tho conservative election fund was proportionally
enriched.
MANY MOKE MIGHT BK ADDED.
Tho list niight bo considerably extended, for the simple enumeration of
the scandals of that period, not alleged by a disgruntled opposition, but
proved by sworn evidence of unwilling
witnesses before parlimcntary committees, was a lengthy one. When conservative speakers and writers discourse glibly on expenditure and extravagance, using the words inter-
changably, as if they were synonymous, the public memory is incapable
of the task of going back a few years
It is not possible in this one paragraph, to go fully into details but if
the oppositionists have fhe temerity to
deny any or nil of these charges, we
shall be compelled to furnish sufficient
detail to satisfy tho most sceptical,
HON. MR. FOSTER SEES SIGNS.
Hon. G. E. Foster, ex-minister of
finance, has returned from his trip to
the west. In the course of his peregrinations, he more than once assured
those he met that his tour was entirely
a business trip;  but he found frequent
opportunity for impromptu political
meetings, which ho took advantage of i
t) place his views on current politics
before the electors. He appears to have
gone over the old hackneyed ground of
exploded charges against the government, ringing the changes with com-
mendable impartiality upon the ''ex-'
travagance" of the public expenditure, !
the "rottenness" of the Yukon administration, the Crow's Nest railway
deal and other deals, and so forth.
With so much material to his hand,
but���though this does not appear to
have troubled him���with precious little
evidence to support his position, the
voluble ex-minister did not find time
to refer to the settlement* of the Maui- |
toba scliool question or the operations
of tho preferential trade, the postmaster general's Imperial penny postage victory aud the wiping out* of the
deficit in his department, the redemption of the re-election promises to reform the superannuation scheme, repeal the franchise act, aud take a prohibition plebiscite, and so forth.
A   SAFE  PREDICTION.
Upon his return to Ottawa Mr.
Foster i.s reported to have said (bat he
never saw the country in such splendid
condition or the people so prosperous,
and Ihis is an honest admission for
which he should receive credit, lie
added, however, that the public were I
fully alive to the "villanies" of the
Grit government and were impatiently
waiting for the first opportunity to
sweep it out of power. Mr. Foster is
to be congratulated upon his optimistic
disposition which must greatly assist
him to bear up under the absolute failure of all his prophesies of blue ruin
and disaster. While finding such unmistakable signs of conservative re
action throughout the west, it is certainly hard to understand why Mr.
Foster did not notice accurately the
trend of local politics in British Columbia, in view of the fact that they
were occupying so large a share of
public atetention when he was at the
coast.
In an interview reported in the Mail
and Empire and other conservative
papers of the (ith inst., Mr. Foster in
speaking of tlie trouble in Pacific
politics is alleged to have said, "What
will bo tho outcome no one knows;
probably in the end a rearrangement
of parties on straight party lines."
Three days before, tbe conservatives of
the province in convention assembled,
passed a resolution declaring that (he
party, as a party, would in the future
take part in provincial elections. Really
Mr. Foster should keep better posted
in current news if he wishes his
prophesies of the future to carry
weight.
A LOST OPPORTUNITY.
The Mail and Empire correspondent*
in Winnipeg has interviewed Major
Walsh respecting his experiences in
the Klondike. The major speaks of
the probable output, of the number of
people in Dawson, of the mining prospects of the future, of the most promising points lo make for, and so on,
but strange to say he is not asked
about the. boodling operations of the
government officials, of tho incompetence and exactions of tho postal clerics,
of the shameful trafficing in mining
claims, of the outrageous actions of
the government- in practically giving
away valuable wharfage privileges, of
tho discontent, almost amounting to
rebellion iii Dawson against officially
tyranny, of his own disgust at lhe
prevailing condition of things, and of
50 other things in which conservative
papers have shown such an interest
during the past few months and which
is of far more national importance
than the question of whether Hunter
creek or Sulphur creek is likely to
prove the richer.
