Will Shortly   Assemble o Congress of
Leading Filipinos at Manolos,
London, Aug. 29,���Tbe Manila correspondent of tlie Times says:
The situation, although undoubtedly
unsatisfactory, remains unchanged
pending a settlement. Aguinaldo proposes lo roniovu bis hoadquarters immediately to the town of Manolos,
provinco of Gnlacou, 20 miles north of
Manila. Thore he will shortly assemble n congress chosen from tho
leading Filipinos who favor the insurgent cause. He further intends to
send a representative In Paris to argue
his claims for the establishment of an
insurgent republic. Manolos is an excellent strategic point, covering a rice
and tobacco district besides the routo
to Biacnabato, where tho Spaniards
were formerly obliged to make a treaty
by which they purchased suspension
of hostilities.
Tho movement was partly necessary
because Aguinaldo was fast losing his
influence in tbe   province   of  Cavite,
where the insurgents evidently expected
to be permitted to occupy Manila conjointly with tlie Americans. Considerable dissatisfaction is apparent
among the insurgent troops and a
frank expression of opinion is frequently heard that Aguinaldo is again
selling the cause.
St. Petersburg,   Aug.   39.���By order
of Emperor Nicholas, Count Muravieff

If the conference mot there was no

an ideal toward which the endeavors

The humanitarian and magnanimous
ideas of bis majesty, the emperor, my

these views in the conviction that this

London, Aug. 20.���The Daily
Graphic this morning, referring to tbe
proposal of Emperor Nicholas, says :
"It would l:o idle to attempt to
ignore the. mnny und grave difficulties
standing in the way of the attainment
of the. czar's wishes, but it can not bo
possible to doubt the sincerity of the
magnanimous proposal."
Tho Standard says, speaking editorially of tho czar's proposal:
"In England, at least, respect and
symputhy will be felt for the proposal.
It is a conception well worthy of tho
young sovereign. It is painfully obvious that thoro uro enormous difficulties
to be overcome which it is possible
the czar in his ardor and humane enthusiasm has not maturely considered.
It is a vision wit ich has occurred to
many minds but* had always to bo dismissed as a mere dream. Tho nations
aro not likely to cast away tho sword
unless they hnvo a better warrant thnn
paper protocols and conventions. Moreover, tbe moment does not seem altogether propitious. Now armed nations
are arising in Asia and Africa whom
it might not bc easy to convince of the
desire of abandoning the. enterprise on
which they hnvo embarked with such
The Standard suggests thut the czar
has tho mutter largely in his own
hiii-dH, adding: "If Rnm-i-.i '-..vi'S
abandon her aggressive policy in China
and elsewhere the era of universal
peaco would lie perceptibly nearer.''
The Times says editorially: "The
note breathes a spirit of generous, perhaps, indeed, almost Quixotic humanity, a spirit familiar in the effusions
of visionaries, but too seldom found in
the utterances of great sovereigns and
responsible statesmen. Never, perhaps,
in modern history have aspirations
which good men in ull ages have regarded at onco ideal and unattainable
found so responsive an echo in the
councils of one of the greatest and
most powerful world's rulers. In principle the proposal of the czar, put
forth on a solemn occasion with a
murk of disinterested sincerity, will
command the sympathy of ull good
men of good will. So far us Grent
Britain is concerned, wo long ago
abandoned continental ambitions und
thorn is no power in tbo world which
has less to gain or more to loso by any
disturbance of existing territorial statu
cpio. The timo bus long gone by when
British commerce could bo mnde to
flourish in und by means of war. The
greatest of our interests is peaco and
so sensitive is our world-wide commerce that even rumors i.f ten do more
injury than war itself might do to a
power less dependent thnn is Great
Britain on a free interchange with the
world of the manifold products of its
native industries. "
Tho Morning Post discussing tbo
difficulties in the way of the proposal,
arrives at tlio conclusion "lhat* it
would suit Russian needs and designs
wonderfully well, hut would not suit
England at all."

Tlio note of tlio oznr of Russiii to the
powers of Europe is naturally causing
it great sensation, botli on aoount of
its nature and of tlu- source from
which it emanates, The dreams of
the Poaco society are thus by a feu-
strokes of the pen transferred from au
apparently impossible Utopia to the
sphere of practioal politics; ami thin
action is taken by the sovereign of a
nation which has, from tho days of
Poter the Great, steadily pursued its
schemes of territorial aggrandizement
by force or by fraud, by fair means or
by foul, by force of arms or by iliul nt
bribes as the expediency of the moment
seemed to require. If the opinions of
tho loading newspapers of tho world
nre any criterion, there are insurmountable diffloulties in the way of
the consummation of the czar's desires;
for whilo the project is
approved of in the abstract, none of
them seem to have any faith in its
Tho diffloulties in the way are numerous and obvious, even if the continental powers, and this seems very
doubtful, are really iu favor of universal disarmament, Tho fundamental
difficulty apparently lies in the mutual
distrust of the powers. Moreover, it
seems impossible for the nations to
really and effectually disarm themselves. The powers of Kurope have today immense bodies of men trained,
equipped and ready for the field, not
to mention the vast stores of munitions of war; and even supposing that
those meu are disbanded and the magazines closed, it is not apparent that
the cause of peace would be materially
advanced or that tho various nations'
would be relatively less ready for war.
A dispute between, say, France and
Germany, if it were once to take hold
of tho popular imagination could never
be kept within bounds by the restrictions of a treaty. The arms are there
and tho soldiers are there, ami it
would only be a question of a few
weeks, instead of a few days, before
immense forces on cither side would
be ready to take the field. It would
require a generation of unbroken peace
to really disarm Europe,
Russia herself, the originator of this
peaco movement, is the most flagrant
example of tho utter disregard of
treaty obligations which many nations
exhibit when it can be done with impunity. It is a matter of common
knowledge that thero is hardly a
clause in the treaty of Berlin that sho
has not persistently broken, Is she
any more ikely to keep the peace,
should it suit her to make war, when
her rivals have put it out of their
power to coerce her? Due would as
soon expect lo seo tho leopard change
his spots! Moreover, in her hordes of
Cossacks, and in thc semi-civilizeil
tribes that roam over Central Asia sho
has a ready mode army of irregular
cavalry, which she could nol disarm
without maintaining an army to do so,
and wliich would be a standing menace
to her neighbors. Tho London Morning Post probably strikes tho right
note when it says that this ostensible
disarmament would suit Russia's designs, but would not bo equally advantageous tous. It is significant, too
that this proposal is coincident with
the announcement of the check Britain has given to Russian scheming iu
tho far Bast.

the numerous creeks containing good
water that course down il.e mountain
sides on either side of the river. Thus
even if the water were to be appreciably affected by the sewage, there
seems to be uo prospect of it hurting
anyone. While the Miner docs not
profess to be an authority on such matters, it is yet strongly of opinion that
the Provincial hoard of health have
not as yet mado out a caso of sufficient
strength to entitle them to place such
a heavy burden upon Ihe finances of
our young cily.

Under the
f the septii
gineer, annually flooded to a depth of
ahout St) feet,and it would be requisite
to fill the area required with broken
rock to that depth, on which the tank
and fillers could then bo built.
It is estimated that the quantity of
rock required to raise the siie to the
level of tlie high water mark woul
not he less than 15,000 cubic yards,
and it is doubtful if this rock could lie
obtained, hauled, and placed, for loss
tban $5.10 per yard ; in which caso,
beforo the actual construction of tho
plant commenced, we have, as a preliminary expenditure, say, purchase of
laud,$1500, royalty, $1600, rock filling,
$81,500, say about $85,000.
A close estimate of the lank, filter-
hods, screening chambers, etc., cannot
in tho absence of tho necessary data lie

will hardly prove less tban from $35,-
000 to $80,000, and I regret that I am

sowage of Nelson which does not involve a very considerable expenditure.

up was the
agreement to supply the Hall Mines
smelter with water. During tlio discussion which followed it was stated
that tho present amount of water flowing in Cottonwood creek is 525,000
gallons in 24 hours. To supply the
smelter with 00 miner's inches of
water would require .150,000 gallons, so
that at present, until the supply is increased it will be impossible to supply
tho smelter. The question of increasing the supply in Cottonwood by diverting Hie waters of other creeks into

taken at an early date.

The process, whioh is purely natural,

With   a   view   to   possible   future extensions of   the buildings, the government, however, may   not   npnrovo  of
