Washington, July 25.���Prom Sunti-
f.igo, under (lute of   July   8, Mrs. John
tddison Porter, wife of  the secretary
if the  president, and now with  Miss
l^lura Barton in the Cuban relief work,
has written a personal letter describing the condition  there.    It was writ-
Hen B week after the great battles of Kl
lunoy and San   Juan.    The Red Cross
Evas then aiding  in the care of  the
[wounded   and   feeding   the   fugitives
(from Santiago.    The Spanish wounded
���actives expressed much gratitude that
hey were given the  same at lent ion as
llie*   Americans.    Une    surgeon   who
jlressed the wounds of 300   American
:nd Spanish soldiers  told  Mrs. Porter
J hat nearly   all   the   Spanish were hit
J wo Or three limes, while as a rule the
|\me:'ieuiis   leeeived   a   single wound,
, Heating the difference of marksmanship.     At   Ihis   time   everybody   was
msy earing for the sick and wounded,
the Amerioan dead have  been buried,
'���ut   the   trenches   were   full of  dead
fepauiards, whose bodies floated on the
lurfaeo of   lhe   water   caused   by   the
Jains and filled the air with   a sicken-
���ig odor.
She   cites   instances of Spanish bar-
arity, and   says iu  several instances
hen were shot dead as they lay in lied
Iross   litters   on lhe   way   to the hos-
lituls.   This firing went on so unceasingly   that the surgeons had   lo  oper
te   by   moonlight.    They were afraid
o light the lanterns, as Spanish sharp-
Shooters would   have   picked them oil',
lomniissioiis   authorizing    this   das-
���ardly   work, she   writes, were  found
'.n the bodies of  some   of   these guerillas.

Scores of   the Players.

Washington, July 25.���The war department was busy today hurrying the
despatch of the remainder of Miles'
expedition against Porto Rico. Such
progress has been made that, if, is
hoped that all of the troops will be on
Porto Rican soil within a week at the
latest. General Miles i.s not expected
to defer his landing until that time,
but presumably will pick out a suitable
place for encamping his troops and
establish himself ashore awaiting the
arrival of the other detachments now
on Iheir way.
It will be at least* Saturday before a
direct* cable can be established with
him, and in tho meantime reliance
must be hud on the. despatch boats
running across to St. Thomas, about
four hours run distant.
It Is Thought Inconceivable   in Washington That He Wrote It.
Washington, July 25.���Nothing has
come yet from General Shafter containing any reference to tho correspondence supposed to have passed hetween himself und Garcia. The officials have no doubt that General Shaffer
wrote a reply to Garoia's letter, but*
they still refuse to believe that Garcia
wrote or knew of the letter said to
have been addressed by him to General
Shatter. One point that seems to afford
some basis for ihis disbelief is General
Shutter's statement that, ho invited
General Garcia to be present at the
ceremonies attending the raising of
the American flag over Santiago. It
is hardly conceivable, therefore, that
General Garcia should have made such
a statement as that attributed to feini
in the letter.
I While regretting the friction that
exists between the Cuban and American forces, the government* can seo no
cause at this moment for a modification in|the programme it hus made for
lhe government of that city. One of
the ablest, of the administration advisers has stated:
"Civil government in a town like
Santiago can only exist in time of
peace. In war time arms must bo
supreme until peace is restored. The
only form of government that can be
maintained over the territory occupied
by an army is a military government. "
Lieutenant    Hobson     Pronounces    It
Feasible, Though Difficult.
New York, July 25.���Lieutenant
Hobson announced this afternoon that
the Merrimau & Chapman Derrick
company has consented to undertake
lhe rescue of the Colon and was making every effort* to begin work us soon
us possible. "The difficulty of saving
the Colon," said he, "lies in the complete submersion upou her beam ends
of a steamer of 7000 tons. Only a short
portion of her stem is clear of the
water, which tills her whole interior.
Her sea valves are open und her sides
ure perforated in a few places jby
shells. Tho beach upon which sho
lies is exceedingly shelving, forming a
part of the faco of the mountain,
which rises from the sea and towers
aloft. In short, all tho conditions aro
such which renders the righting and
raising of the ship an engineering feat
of large proportions. At the same
time it is simple and quite feasible.
No new appliances are needed, and
nothing has to be invented. It is
simply a question of getting to the
spot iu time the accepted means and
methods on a sufficient scale."
The Oulian Colonial Government* Hopes
to Win Over the Insurgents,
Madrid, July 25, il a. 111.���It i.s announced tonight that complete tranquility prevails throughout Spain. Tho
Cuban colonial government, it is announced, will confer with representatives of Maximo Gomez, and, it is believed, that* the conference may result
in the insurgents espousing the Spanish cause.
Sir George Clarke Commends American
Seizure of Hawaii and Porto Rico.
London, July 25. ���Sir George Sydenham Clarke, the expert on naval tactics
for imperial defense, writes to tho
Daily Graphic this   morning strongly
approving of the American annexation
of Hawaii and Porto Rico.    He says :
"It is for the best interests of the
world that any canal connecting tho
Atlantic and Pacific should bo controlled by the United States, and wdiat*
ever attitude tlio European powers may
take foreign interference is out of the
question, because the interests of the
United States and Great Britain in the
future canal will be paramount. Therefore Lord Salisbury's policy toward
the United States is wise and states
The lottor has,evoked au article in
the Daily Graphic calling attention to
the revival of England's traditional
policy to prevent the United States
from acquiring strategical positions in
tho Atlantic and the Pacific, enabling
it to control tho possible canal. The
Daily Graphic in an editorial this
morning suys it agrees with Sir George
Sydenham Clarke, but is curious to
know what induced Lord Salisbury to
adopt an attitude which has so much
facilitated the success of America.
What   Aro   American   Intentions Regarding the Philippines.
London, July 25.���The Berlin correspondent of the Daily News says:
According to a despatch from Washington, the interview between McKinley and the German ambassador, Dr.
Vou Holleben, was cordial, the latter
assuring the president of tho friendly
feeling of Emperor William and
Germany toward tho United States.
It is said that Dr. Holloben conveyed
Emperor William's desire for an
amicable statement of America's intention regarding the Philippines. It
is not known here whether Mr. McKinley responded.
The German firms at Manila have
decided to petition the government
again to obtain from the United States
indemnity for thoir losses. They
wanted tlie English traders po join iu
the appeal, but the latter received a
hint from London not to join, as Lord
Salisbury had already received favorable assurances from Washington.
Her Captain Claims  the  Steamer Was
Outside the Blockaded Zone.
St, Thomas, D. W. I. July 25.���Captain Lot��o of tlio German steamer
Gretna, which arrived here yesterday
and reported as having beon fired upon
three times oft' San Juan de Porto Rico
on Saturday night by an American
warship, understood to be the United
States cruiser New Orleans, was quoted
in an interviow today as saying that
the first solid shot fell within 20 yards
of tho ship. The steamer was immediately stopped, but her captain adds two
more shots were fired over the Gretna's
bows from close rango.
Lator.'���An officer from tho New
Orleans hoarded the Gretna and asked
if tho ship was injured. Captain Lotze
was highly indignant at being fired
upon, as ho considered his ship was
outside of tho blockaded zone. He
says ho saw nothing of the invading
The Troops Will  Remain Thero Until
Yellow Fever Is  Eradicatod.
Washington, July 25.���Rumors of
several kinds have boen in circulation
as to tho disposition of General
Shaffer's army, but tho war department has not como to auy conclusion
as yot in tho mattor. A sufficient
forco is to bo kept at Santiago to
maintain the position that the United
Statos has taken and to preserve order.
Whilo thero is yellow fever in the
army no attempt will be mado to
bring the troops to the United Statos.
Tho war department, it* may bo stated,
is making efforts to secure for General
Shatter's army an ample supply of
nutritious food. Tho soldiers will havo
a rest and careful attention so that
they may get in tho best of condition
It is not believed at the department
that auy numbor of troops will bo

The Earl of Minto is to bo the successor of Lord Abordeon as governor
gonoral of Canada. The appointment
has been approved by the Queen.
Gilbert John Murry Kinyoumead
Elliot, fourth earl of Minto, was horn
in 1845. In 1883 he married the
daughter of the Hon. Charles Grey.
He was educated in Trinity college,
Cambridge, and soon after completing
his course was appointed ensign of the
Scotts' Guards in 1867. The Earl of
Miuto in 1877 served with the Turkish
army and also took part in the Afghan
war in 1870. In 1881 he became private
secretary to General Lord Roberts at
the Cape. He went as a volunteer
through the Egyptian campaign of
1882, and from 1882 to 1885 was military secretary to the Marquis of Lausdowne, then governor general of Canada. Ho was chief of staff in the
northwest rebellion of 1885. Ho is tho
owner of immense landed estates.
Has Been Attending the Judioial Court
of the Privy Council.
Ottawa, July 35.���Deputy Minister
of Justice Newcombe, who has been
in Great, Britain on h-isinw)H b��?o.re the
judicial court of the privy council, has
returned. The principal caso witL
which he had to do was an appeal to
determine whether the Canada Sugar
Refining company could enter a cargo
of sugar under the schedule in force
prior to Foster's tariff revision of 1895.
The vessel called at Sydney on April
29, the tariff was increased on May 3
and the vessel arrived at Montreal on
May 4. The government collected under the new tariff. The amount involved is $30,000, and the probability
is that the decision will bo in favor of
tho government.
The Receiver  General  Says  His Mission Was a Success.
St. John, July 2.���The Fmech
steamer Dahomey leaving Liverpool
on July 16 for Halifax arrived here today. She reports that she stuck on
Cape Spear during a thick fog, staving
her bows and filling her foropeak with
water, but she floated off again without damage. Among her passengers
was Mr. Merino, receiver goneral of

duet bus led to the light punishment
of expulsion from the island, and it is

A fow days ago'we commented on
the stato of affairs in tho far cast, and
tho preparations England was making
in view, apparently, of a possible conflict with Russia. The situation now
appears likely to la* further complicated by the internal condition of the
Chinese empire. The Toronto Mail
and Empire, in its latest issue to hand,
has an editorial on the subject, in
which it says, "What wus at first reported to be thc marauding of robber
bauds in the southern provinces of
China now appeal's to lie a deliberate
revolution, led by men of conviction, "
The promoters of this revolution are
most of thein men with a European
education, and are members of the
Chinese progressive society, called (he
Hing-Chung-Wooy. It is stated lhat
their aim is lhe establishment of u republican form of government, but
however this maybe they ure undoubtedly striving to overthrow the Manchu
dynasty, and this is what is likely to
causo international complications. The
Mnnchus, who are Tartars, not Chinese conquered China some 280 vein's
ago and have held sway there ever
since, doing nothing but living on the
taxes wrung from the people.
If the revolution succeeds, and a certain amount of virility nnd a desire for
improvement be thereby infused into
the government, the partition of China
���among the European powers would be
stopped and the whole country thrown
open to international commerce. This
is exactly what. Great Britain desires
und on the faco of it it would seem
probable that* she would gladly see a
���successful revolution. Russia, on the
other hand, would prefer to maintain
tho present regime, for the Chinese
emperor now on tiie throne seems
either unable or unwilling to refuse
uny of the. Russian demands no matter
how exorbitant they may he. Moreover, the emperor is old and the last
of his line, and iu the inevitable confusion consequent on his decease Russia
will not want lo lose a chance of obtaining a further share of the spoils.
Thus in the event of the revolution attaining menacing proportions there
seems to be a chance of I lie powers
ranging themselves on opposite sides,
as was invariably the case in our
struggle with France for the control of
India. On the other hand, the introduction of British officers into the
Chinese army and navy muy lie Ihe
hands of the English government,
while against this again i.s the fuel
that there is a considerable and influential section of the house of commons
that, has already declared itself opposed
to bolstering up the Chinese empire or
in any way introducing a second "sick
man" into international polities, People holding theso views would gladly
see a strong govern.m nl of uny kind
established in China. Thus in every
wny a most Interesting and complicated problem is unfolding itself beforo
the eyes of those who take uu interest
iu the trend of events iu the fur east.
As will be seen in our report, of yesterday's council meeting given in another column, lhe validity of the electric light l.y-law, which was recently
passod with barely the required majority, is about lo he contested in the
court:,. In commenting on his the
mayor reniorkod thai il wus not fair
to ask lhe cily lo light   lhe cnSO, US   if
would not be possible to collect lhe
costs from Ihe parties who have instituted the proceedings Whether such
is lhe ease ur noi The Miner is not in
a position to say,but it muy be pointed
out lhat if his worship the mayor is
sn solicitous lo guard lhe eity exchequer from loss, he should have considered ull these things before rushing
through a by-law of such importance
in defiance of the wishes of a large
and influential section of the ratepayers. We understand, however, that
lhe cily will light (he case in spite of
vain regrets.

and     sending     in    their   cards   were
promptly admitted to   Mr. (Hailstone's

cards was that of the bishop of Wyoming, nnd it was   pronounced in the oid

Here is a item from a London'weekly
whoso lone is sympathetic toward the
colonies and it gives us a gluilCO of
ourselves as others sec us: "Prosperity
is in itself tho all-sufflcient advertisement lor a prosperous country. Tho
United Slates had no difficulty in filling up the vacanl area of the Union
without t ho help of a vigorous immigra>
tion policy. So it will be with Canada if mineral discoveries, high prices
and good crops combine to establish
the Dominion in its character as a
country where people can do well,
Tho fatal mistake of allowing tho railway companies to grab so much of
the laud iii tin- northwest deprived
Canada of the wealth of free homo-
steads, which was perhaps tho greatest
iuducomonl tho United States offered
to settlers. The old conservative mistake of undue tenderness to corporations has retarded tho growth of population in tho west, but now il is fair
to assume that the mineral discoveries
and the agricultural prosperity of
western Canada are doing moro to fill
lip   the   country     ihan    Ihe    vigorous
immigration policy,"
"I always consider my wife proposed

much admired, but had not dared to
propose to, as she was an heiress, and
asked lur if she knew tho old superstition about pulling a merry thought
over I he door, [stuck it up over a
ruined arch and looked  at   her.
" 'Now' I said 'if the old saying is
true the first woman who walks under
that will ho my future wife.'
"She looked ine full in the face,then
stepped under it, and I leavo you to
guess how long I was in setting up

At the regular meeting of the city
oounoil held yesterday afternoon there
were present Mayor Houston, Aldermen Hillyer, Madden, Teetzel and
The minutes of last luri'liiiK were
rend nnd adoptod.
A number of bills were received in
connection with the reception to liis
Exoellenoy the Governor General on
the recent visit of the vico regal party
to Nelson, and on tho suggostiou of
the mayor were referred to the finance
committee to report on,
Tenders   for   supplies   required   for
sewer extension were received   us   fol

15-mch pipe, 80 cents.
The tenders were referred to th
lie works committee, to report
the next meeting of the council.
The public works committee recommended that certain extensions be
made to the, sewer system as reported
by the city engineer. Tenders were
received for the purchase of the city
debentures, as authorized by by-laws
recently submitted lo I lie rate-payers
for approval, as follows:
Bank of British Columbia, for $5000
of debentures at HU cents.
Bank of Halifax, for $20,000, as per
by-laws 2,2 and 88, at par wilh deductions of 81,111 for legal fees to examine the validity of the by-laws.
Bank of Montreal, for whole amount
of $66,000 debentures, 98)^ cents.
The mayor notified the council that
Dr. Arthur and R. M. Macdonald had
entered procedings to quash tlie electric light by-law on the grounds that
the mayor and council were interested
in the Electric Light company, and
therefore the transaction is illegal. Ue
further stated that he did not* consider
it fair that the eity should be called
upon to fight the ease, when if successful it would be impossible to recover
the costs of the ease, from either of the
parties named. The notice had been
held back until after the result of the
provincial elections was known and
an extension of time for this purpose
was secured. The costs to the city of
defending the by-law would not he less
than iJIOl), and lie doubted if any fraction of it could be collected afterwards.
Noel & Thompson .submitted n list of
tools which they wished'to sell to lhe
city, and their communication was referred to the public works committee.
On motion the council adjourned
until Wednesday afternoon at il
water. In addition there is lhe Kootenay Sampling Works at Kaslo. A
smelter is in operation at Pilot Bay,
another at the Hall mini's at Nelson,
the Canadian Pacific has one at Trail
anil the Be Roi Mining company has
one al Northport. A cyanide plant is
bein- built ul Silica.' B C. And all
this in the short time [ have mentioned.
"In 1805 there was not a bank in the
country. Now the Morchiuits' Bank
offiHalifax, the Bank of Montreal, the
Punk of Uri tish Columbia and the
Bank of British North America all
have branches in thc Kootenay. Take
this all together and I think it i.s a
pretty good showing for a new

"Did you ever stop lo realize, what

or four years amounted to?" asked
General Agent Dixon of the Great
Northern Railway a day or so ago iu
conversation with a Spokesman-Review reporter, mi his rotnru from a
trip over lhe line of lhe Spokane Falls
& Northern railway. Perhaps the
recent acquisition of that road liy his
own company bad something in do
with his actions, and perhaps it had
not, but the fact remains lhal he gathered considerable information concerning the country during his trip,
"Rossland, Xelson. Ktwlo, Sandon,
New Denver. Three Porks, Greenwood
and a number of oilier towns have
grown into good sized towns from
either small oomps or nothing but the
wilderness," he continued. "Four
