"Santiago do Cuba, July 23 ���Headquarters Fifth Army Corps to the
Adjutant (Ieneral, Washington: The
Colonel of engineers of tho Spanish
army has just arrived from Guantanamo. He has heard that Santiago surrendered ami thai ihey had heen in-
cluileil. He was seul here to verify the
fact. They will bo glad to accept the
terins of surrender. They are very
short of rations and I shall have to he-
gin feeding them at once. He lells
me there are 0000 at that place. I am
now feeding 1000 prisoners hero and
there are 1(100 sick in the hospital. 1
expect. 3000 men in tomorrow from
San Luis and Palma. J will send an
officer tomorrow or next day with one
of (Ieneral Toral'a to receive their surrender there. I. think the number of

New York, July ���;::.���Tlie Unitod
Slates hospital ship Relief arrived al
quarantine ihis afternoon from Sib-
oney with 123 sick ad wounded ollicers
and snliliers from Santiago. The Relief left New York on July 12, just 12
days ago, fully equipped with a skilled
corps of nurses and all modern surgical
appliances and instruments for the
treatment of sick and wounded soldiers
in charge of Major Torney, a surgeon
of the United States army. During the
12 days that the Relief was in commission she has ^received on hoard -.'li*"!
sick and wounded soldiers. Of this
number 18 have died and a large number have been transferred to tho Senium, Solace and Boston.
Of the 125 men now on board the
Relief there are ouly ahout live
dangerously wounded.
With Lnrgo Quantities of Gold���Object
to Mini-ug Laws.
Vieloria, July 22.���Early this morning lhe  steamer Garonne, tho largest
of lhe ,i ukoil fleet of vessels, tied up at
the outer wharf. She brought down a
number of miners and treasure estimated at from $50,000 to $1,500,000.
The general run of her passengers were
very secretive as to iheir earnings,
and, therefore, itis most difficult lo
correctly ascertain the amount of bullion brought down.
A number of the miner.-', wero most
hit ter in their denunciations against the
inining laws in forco in the Yukon,
claiming that with the present laws in
force, scores of miners would be
ruined. The percentage claimed by
lhe Dominion government is, iu their
opinion, far too high. Two more river
boats were expected at St. Michaels
within is hours niter the Garonne left
and they were reported to have a large,
amount of bullion on hoard. It* is
likely Ihey will reach St. Michaels in
time lu catch the Danube hound
Washington, July 28.��� (iioneral Miles'
expedition in all probability is now in
the Mona passage hetween Hayti and
Porto Rico and will be iu sight of tho
landing point in the morning. While
this is the expectation of Secretary
Alger, for prudential reasons the war
department declines to make any comment as to the accuracy of the various
guesses that have heen mado in the
eli'i rt lo ascertain just what part has
been selected for a landing place.
There is likely to he a lapse of a day
or two hetwen the arrival of the expedition and the notification of the
fact to the department unless some
merchant vessel crossing lo St.Thomas
should sight the American flotilla.
Sehwnn's troops got away only today
from Tampa, while tlie most numerous detachment of Ihe expedition,
the first division under (ieneral Brooke
will not he able to clear from Newport
News boforo Monday.
Still it is believed thoy wiil arrive
at Porto Rico in good season, ami will
certainly facilitate tho orderly landing
of ilie troops to have them land iu detachments, instead of one vast army,
as in tbe case of Shaftor's army.
It was reported today thai Colonel
J. J. A slur of Shaftor's staff was due
in Washington, bringing rhe full capitulations signed by the commanders,
and it was expected thai" Shatter's preceding reports would accompany tbem.
Howevwup to the close of offloa hours
he did not appear, and tho department
does not  know where he is.
The stale department has completed
the engrossment of the joint resolution
adopted by congress extending tiie
thanks of 'lhal branch of the government lo Admiral iDewey for his notable achievement in the Philippines.
These were transmitted (o the navy
department, which will forward them
oi ihe admiral, along wiib the degree
of Ll,. D. conferred on him hy the

He Resigns iu Consequence of Alleged
Bl Treatment by Shafter.
New York, July 2'S.��� A despatch
from Santiago gives the following as a
letter sent by (Ieneral Garcia to General Shafter:
"Sir���On .May I'l tlie government of
the republic of Cuba ordered me, as
commander of the Cuban army in the
east, lo co-operate with the American
army, following the plans and obeying
the ordors of its commander. I have
done my bost to fulfill the will of my
government and I have been, until
now, one of your most faithful subordinates, honoring myself in carrying
lout your orders sii far as my powers
have allowed me to do it.
"The city of Santiago surrendered to
the American army and news of that
important event was given to me by
persons entirely foreign to your stall's.
[ have, not been honored with a single
word from yourself, informing me
about the negotiations for peace or the
terms of the capitulation by the Spaniards. Tlie important ceremony of the
surrender of the Spanish army nnd the
faking possession of the city by yourself took place later, and I only know
of both events by public reports.
" 1 was nol honored, sir, with a kind
word from yon inviting myself or any
officer of my staff to represent I ue
Cuban army on that memorable occasion
"Finally, I know that you have left
in power at Santiago the same Span
ish authorities thnt   for  three years I
have fought as Ihe enemies of the independence of Cuba. I beg to say lhat
these authorities have never been
elected at Santiago by the residents of
the city, but were appointed by royal
decrees ofjtho Qnoen of Spain.
"I would agree that your army
should have taken possession of the
city and llie garrison aud the forts. I
would give my warm co-operation to
any meosnro yen may have deemed
best under American military law. to
hold lhe cily for your army and to
preserve pubiic order until the time
comes for you lo fulfill lhe solemn
pledge to establish in Cuba a free and
independent government made by the
people of the United Slates.
"But when llie (piestion arises of
appointing ollicers in Santiago de
Cuba, undor the peculiar circumstances
of our 1,0 years' strife against Spanish
rule, I cannot see hut with Ihe deepest
regret lhat: such authorities are uot
elected hy the Cuban peoplo but are
tbe same ones selected by the Queen of
Spain, and hence are ministers   to de
fend against   the   Cubans the Spanish
'' A rumor too absurd to believe, general, ascribes the reason of your measure and of your order forbidding my
army to go into Santiago to be fear of
massacre and revenge against the
Spaniards. Allow me, sir, to protest
against the shadow of such an idea.
We are no! savages, ignoring the rules
of civilized warfare. We are a poor,
ragged army, as ragged and as poor as
were your ancestors forefathers in
their noble war for independence, but
as did the heroes of Saratoga and
Yorktown, we respect too deeply our
cause to disgrace it with barbarism
and cowardice. In view of all these |
reasons,Insincerely regret to he unable to
fulfill any longer the orders of my gov
eminent, and therefor" I have today
tendered to the commander-in-chief of
the Cuban arm}', Major (Ieneral Maximo Grane7, iny resignation as commander of this section of his army.
"Awaiting   bis  resolution, I   withdraw my forces to the interior.
'' Verv respectfully.
Kalamazoo Is the Second Steamer Lost
After Shooting White Horse Rapids.
Seattle,Wash., July Iiii.���The steamer
Kalamazoo, built liy a party from
Michigan on Lake Bennett last winter,
was totally wrecked on Thirty Mile
river. The wreck was passed by the
party which has arrived bere. Only
the upper works of the vessel could he

Captain Taylor Tells of a   Shell Striking the Indiana.
Washington, July 22.���The following letter bas been received from
Captain Taylor of the Indiana:
Battleship Indiana, Off Santiago,
July 5, 1H1IH.���About 12 midnight the
ship was struck by a shell, apparently
an is*., mortar, wliich pierced the deck
at tbe flashplate between beams Nos. ?ti
and 77���four inches from the starboard
rail. The shell exploded in tlio compartment known as B-100, just* forward
of the cabin door, fragments piercing
the cabin water pipe, breaking in two
places near tbe starboard cabin door.
Large fragments pierced tbo watertight berth deck in two places, entering tlie paymaster's state room. Large
fragments also pierced and completely
wrecked the water-tight* batch plate
leading to the Orlop top deck. Tho
rooms in the vicinity on both sides
were badly wrecked, considerable damage being done to the furniture and
corrugated bulkheads, the bookcase
knocked over nnd mnny books injured.
A leak was started in the lire main by
a small fragment ancl the whole coin-
pnrtcnt was so tilled with smoke that
il necessitated taking up the battle
hatches on the main deck.
Only a few sparks of lire were observed, which were quickly put out,
as a stream of water was playing into
the comportment immediately after
the shell struck.
Captain Taylor ends with the statement lhat no one was injured and
that the ship wns in perfect condition
for hattie.
The sheriff of Yale, A. G. Pcmber-
(on, received a telegram on Wednesday
from Ottawa slating that Samieii, the
Indian sentenced to death at Clinton
assizes for the murder of a young Englishman named Elkins, bad been respited until October 'Jil The grounds
set forth iu the petition sent to Ottawa
asking for a respite wero that no counsel was asked to defend him until the
dny of the trial; that Samieii is illiterate and unable to understand English
and consequently the defense was impeded; that he had no money or friends
and could not call witnesses; that it is
alleged Elkins debauched bis little sister, and that it is reported nt the time
of the murder two drunken Indians
were in the vicinity of the murdered
man's home.

Germany ibhs Uxprcused Xo WUbca Kclu-

Papers More Amicable.
Berlin, July :>:*;.��� "So far as the
United States embassy is concerned,
nothing is known of any negotiations
or communications whatever between
the United States aud the German
governments relative to any Spanish
colonies," said Mr. Andrew D. White,
the United States ambassador in an interview with the correspondent of the
Associated Press. "Besides," continued Mr. White, "there hns been no
question at any time between this embassy and the German foreign office
relative to the German desire for a
coaling station in the Philippines, nor
for any possession of any of the Islands
thereof. Neither has there been any
discussion of Germany's wishes to secure any other Spanish colonies. To
express such wishes, which we are unaware of, would be, at the present
moment above all, too premature.
There bave been important negotiations begun between the United States
and Germany, but it is too early to
talk about that now. "
From another source the correspondent of the Associated Press heard that
the negotiations to which Mr. Whito
refers relate to the tariff, but he has
beeu unable to obtain an official continuation of this at tbe German foreign
Emperor William is kept continually
informed of all events connected with
tho war between Spain and* tbe United
States and the developments at Washington, Madrid and Berlin. Regular
reports are sent to bin. t , points on the
Norwegian coast, where ne makes stops
while on his tour of Norway. A large
batch of despatches containing the latest news of the war was sent this week
by special courier to Diergumullen.
The tone of the German press is less
friendly to the United States than the
week bofore, and tho latest developments of the war have been commented
upon in rather a sarcastic spirit. Tbe
liberal press, though., has adopted,
generally speaking, a fair and more
neutral comment. The Vossiehe Zeit-
ung printed an editorial in which it
freely admitted that it wished the
United States speedy success, and referred ro the unbroken friendship existing for so many years between tho
two countries.
John Oliver Overcome by Fumes From
a Blast���Remains Sent East.
The remains of the late John Oliver,
a miner who was killed on Friday
evening in an accident at the Silver
King mine, were escorted to the C. P.
R. depot yesterday evening by the
mem tiers of tho Nelson lodge of Odd
Fellows, and were shipped to his
former home in Iron Mountain, Michigan. The unfortunate miner was a
member of the Odd Fellows order, and
leaves a wife and family to mourn his
untimely deatb. The details of tho
accident are as follows:
Oliver ami his mate, Harris, had set
oil' a blast, and being in a hurry to
finish up their work on the shift, returned too soon to find the result of
the shot. Finding the gas from the
discharge too strong they attempted to
retrace their steps, but both fell in the
tunnel overcome liy the fumes. When
lie fell, Oliver's candle did not go out,
hut fell on his body, setting lire to his
clothing. When i'ound shortly afterwards by the next shift going to work
his body was frightfully burned, and
he only lived a short time after being
taken out. Dr. Forin wns nt once
summoned from Nelson, but before
reaching the mine llie unfortunate
man bad expired. Harris is also badly
burned, but will recover.
D. O. McGregor of Vancouver, proj
vincial manager of the Union Fire Insurance company for British Columbia
and vice president of tbe British Columbia board of underwriters, arrived
in the city last night on business connected with his company. While here
Mr. McGregor will interview tho city
council regarding file imposition of th
$200 license fee on insurance companies
doing business in tho city. To a
Miner reporter he stated that tho companies interested wero greatly annoyed
at the action of the Nelson city council
but had not yet decided What action
tbey should take in the matter. At
any rate, said Mr. McGregor, tho insurer will havo to pay the license fee.
He further stated that the rates of insurance in Nelson are lower than those
of any other town in tho interior of
the province. f HE  MINER,  MONDAY, JULY 25, 1898

Hitherto the Americans liave had
plain sailing in their contest with
Spain. The attitude of England has
warded off diplomatic troubles with
the great powers of Europe, while,
with the exception of the battle ef
Santiago, the resistonce of the Spaniards has been tlio reverse of effective,
Now,however, trouble is brewing with
their somewhat dubious allies both in
tho Pacific and Atlantic, in tlie Philippines Aguinaldo has declared himself
dictator and president of tho Philippine republic, and in Cuba (Ieneral
Calixto (farcin, probably the most influential aud determined of the Cuban
generals, lias resigned his command
and in the meantime has withdrawn
into the interior with all bis forces.
In an eloquent letter, whichjwe publish in another column,General Garcia
details his grievances and gives the
reasons which havo induced him to re
though a spocial section of the mining
j market has heen set aside for Canadian
'milling   securities, still   the   long es-
pocted "B. 0. boom" has not yet come
nil. and lhe English investors have not
'displayed that feverish interest in this
district which   was   exhibited   in  tho
Kaffir ami Westralian "booms. "
The lion-occurrence of   tbo   expected
boom may he attributed to a variety of
causes, but it is by    no   means   necessarily to be regretted.     Iu   boom times
13 00 I a large number of worthless properties
j are invariably floated to   the   ultimate
I detriment of the country, while a great
proportion  of  the   money   subscribed
finds ils way  into   the  pockets of the
promoters and does   not   contribute   to
ihe development of ibe country.
Notwithstanding ibe absence of any
extraordinary excitement, a very considerable amount of English capital
bas already been brought into Canada,
ll is difficult to ascertain exactly how
much money has actually been subscribed towards milling and exploration
companies in this country, bul the
amount lies probably between $10,000,
000 and $16,000,000, while the nominal sum subscribed is about three
times that amount. The Mining Record further adds tba if tlie capital of
the many companies lhat have been
registered, but which have not yet
materialized owing to the unfavorable
state of the stock market be added, the
total would be swelled to nearly If SO, -

The output of the Klondike for 1898
is estimated at from $10,000,0011 to
$16,000,000. This, though undoubtedly a vory large .sum of money, is considerably below the most conservative
estimates made last year, and the predicted recurrence of last year's rusJJ
seems morn and morn unlikely, notwithstanding the arrival of the stoani-
i'1's with their quota of successful miners. How much gold hns lieen actually brought down up to date is uncertain owing to the extreme reticence of
the fortunate miners. It seems probable however, that dust, nuggets und
drafts to the amount of nearly $4,000,-
sign  his   command.     He   seouts   ^e 1000 have already been shipped
is another side to   this golden picture,
a stern ami gloomy sido.and one whieh
statements, whieh hav;' beeu widely
circulated, that* his troops have refused
to work and are prone to plunder and
massacre. He also complains that he
has been personally slighted, that lie
received no official notice of the
negotiations whieh preceded tho surrender of Santiago, nor even of tho
capitulation itself. He likewise resents not having received on invitation
to witness the ceremony of unfurling
the American flag over Santiago, and
the faot that the former Spanish civil
officials are provisionally retained.
Tho general's letter is eloquent and
manly in tone nnd to all appearances
bears the utanip of truth upon it. but
if it bc true, the cable reports from the
front have been one tissue of falsehoods.
Although the despatches have bien
frequently contradictory and inaccurate, aud emanate entirely from American (and therefore interested) sources,
yet this is very hard to believe. Readers of The Miner will remember the
circumstantial reports of the plunder
and sack of El Caney by the Cubans,
of their massacre of -10 Spanish prisoners committed to their charge and tho
way they fired upon the defenseless
seamen of Cervera's ships, who after
striking their colors left the burning
vessels and endeavored to make thoir
way on shore. It was explicitly
stated, too, that Garcia was asked to
attend the ceremony at* Santiago, and
the words in which he couched his refusal were, literally given. In Ihe face
of all this it will require more than
General Garoia's unsupported eloquence to convince disinterested persons that the Cubans have been gross
may well make the more inexperienced of the fortune hunters halt and
turn. If the tales of treasure are numerous, the stories of death and disaster
are still more numerous. White Pass,
Chilooot pass, Lake Linderman, Thirty
Mile river, all contribute to the list of
lhe dead and missing. In our columns today is chronicled the return of
the Garonne with her precious freight,
and in another column will be found
the story of the lost steamer Kalamazoo. The few win, the many lose ;
the few find fortune, the many ruin

It would appear now that the government was not quite so smart* as it
thought it was when it got tho nomination day for the Cassiar elections announced iu a hurry in tlie hope of
shutting out* the opposition candidates.
If is true that Mr. Callbreath, who
was at Telegraph Creek, was prevented
by lack of notice from getting his
nominal ion paper in in time, but Mr.
McTavish, one of the nominees, has
announced himself an oppositionist,
while Mr, Clifford has declared himself uu independent, though it is understood that he will support the winning side. The only remaining candidate"; is Captain Irving, who is au
avowed supporter of the Turner government. Will informed persons declare lhal Captain Irving's chances of
election are but slim, so the machinations of thc government seem likely
lo be of no avail, and Premier Turner
will probably afford another instance

The second and lasl day of the annual regattaof the National association
of amateur oarsmen producod some of
the finest racing ever seen in a national regatta. In throe of the events
only a few feet separated the first and
second crews. The most sensational
event of the day was tho eight-oared
shell raee, which the Pennsylvania
Barge club's champion eight captured
from the Argonauts of Toronto by a
few feet alter a grand struggle.
The weather was perfeot. Between
110,000 and 40,000 persons congregated
along the banks to watch the races,
and all sorts of craft were strung both
sides of the river. Two of the championships wero captured liy Philadelphia crews. Ten Eyclc won the senior
single championship.
The Western Rowing club of St.
Louis carried off the honors in the intermediate four-oared shell race. The
Argonauts captured the senior international fottr-oared championship. In

international 1'our-nared shell race, the
Argonauts of Toronto and the Ariels
of Baltimore. This race was a mile
ami a half straightaway. The Argonauts were the first to get away,bul at
the three-quarter flag llie Ariels were
leading by a small margin, The pace
was set* by the Ariels and was terrific.
Slowly but surely, however, the Canadians crawled up. In the hist hundred yards the crews rowed abreast,
and the Canadians won hy three feel.
Five crews lined up in Ihe intermediate double sculls, the Bachelors of
Philadelphia, the Nonpareils, Metropolitan and Haarlem, of Kev: York,
and the Argonauts of Toronto. Tlie

tho drowning of   Albert*  McCarger  at
Waterloo last week ar.i as follows:
Ir was shortly liefore 10 o'clock thai
a boatload of men in tlie employ of 11.
W, Simpson & Co. of Nelson, who
have a contract for clearing the West
Kootenay Light & Power right of way,
crossed the river tu Waterloo. Mr.
Simpson himself was in the first boat.
In the second boat were eight men,
among whom was Albert McCarger.
lie stood in the stern and was paddling. In crossing the stream against
lhe curreul it was necessary to put
great force tu the oars, and in the
darkness ihe boal reached the shure
sooner than was expected. The bow
struck a rock, causing the boat to rebound. It shol um the length of the
craft, (he collision oausin'g McCarger
tu lose his balance and fall overboard.
The boat capsized with him and all
hands went over. These on shure
gave what assistance they could, but
when lhe men were being accounted
fur McCarger was missing. The next
day Messrs. Simpson, Baillie and
Ferguson came down the river and
made a careful search fur the missing
man, but nu trace of him or bis beat
could be found, (in Tuesday Captain
Devil! in company wilh Bev. Mr. Calvert of Trail, went lu Waterloo tind did
everything possible tu raise the body,
but without avail. Dynamite was exploded in the river and eddies bnt if
was useless. The supposition is that
the body was in some uf (he eddies
farther down lhe stream, and lhal Ihe
boat being waterlogged kept the curront and went dnwu the river during
the night.
There is yet a startling story to be
told of the Jamioson raid, if the little
group of men who know ever receive
sufficient inducement to tell it. Last
weel-: another little corner of (he veil
was drawn aside by the report of the
house of commons committee on public
accounts, The report conveys the surprising information that although the
British ollicers taking part wore struck
off lhe army list ihey have been
awarded substantial allowances,
namely, $1500 annually retired pay to
Colonel Rhodes, and gratuities of $6000
lu Captain While, $8000 tu Captain
Raleigh Grey, $8750 In Major While,
$5665 tu Major Willoughby. These
items promoted a healed battle between lhe commons committee and the
ministry, which believers in tbo colonial office's complicity in lhe raid
find most suggestive. The committo
helil that the misconduct wiped out
lhe claims.
The secretary of war politely told
the cummill,"' to mini! Iheir own business Ue meant iu deal with lhe
affair. Sn the committee awards the
payments, but lhe public protests
against the "dangerous precedent and
Iho straining of the royal warrant to
meet an exceptional case."
