Times Correspondent on the
Fall of Manila.
The German Ofiicora and  Men ate Very
Secretive -American Oruiser With
Despatches Expected-
Loudon, Aug. 17.���The Hong Song
correspondent of the limes, commenting on the reticence of the officers and
crew of the Kaiserin Augusta, says:
The curious attitude of the Germans
has provoked a deal of feeling here and
some suspicion as to the real object of
their seerotiveiiess. The practice hitherto has been for cruisers leaving
Manila, no matter to what nation they
belong, to bring the mails of every
nationality represented at Manila. The
Kaiserin Augusta brought only the
German mail.
No consistent story of the flghi has
arrived but  it   appeal's  that on Satur-
I tf'-fcy turning Ihe Spaniards refused tn
surrender, At 10 o'clock Admiral
Dewey took the squadron over from
Cavite to the front of the city. At the
same time the American troops advanced 'i   nt tack'the Spanish treuchos
1 at Mali. ;. A lleree snuggle ensued,
lasting over two hours. The ships reduced the forts while the Iroops
curried   the   trenches and   forced   the
I Spaniards  buck   into   the walled city
Iwhere the Spaniards surrendered,
Governor General Augusti "and his
family by pre-arranged plans, were
taken on board the German cruiser,
which steamed away at a speed iif 17
knots to Hong Kong. It is supposed
that the land forces of both sides
sufferod heavily.
An   American    cruiser   with    des-
|patches is expected tomorrow.

Madrid Says   Caihairen Was So   Honored Saturday.
Madrid, Aug. 17.���A despatch from
Havana says that the American gunboat, Mangrove fired JS7 shells at Cai-
baireii on Saturday. The land batteries and gunboats in the harbor replied. The Bring ceased when tbo
commander of tlir Mangrove received
the news brought by the Spanish gunboat- that* the protocol bad been signed.
Every letter as well as each arrival
from the north country seem to confirm in its full extent the news of the
rich discoveries in Northern Cassiar
that the Victoria Colonist gave on
Sunday morning. The gold is undoubtedly there, m what extent of
territory is not yet determined, but
in sufficient by good quantity to assure
the thorough prospecting of tlie entire district. To put it in the words
of a veteran northern prospector when
interviewed by the Daily Alaskan of
Skagway :
"There is no Little Salmon foolishness, but a veritable rich strike���as
rich us anything in the history of
Klondike. I have been there; I've
seen for myself; and I'm sure of it."
Naturally the half-dozen or so who
have been working on Pine or Pike
river during weeks past, taking out*
$100 a day to the man by the crudest
system of mining, were desirous of
keeping the discovery as well as tbe
location of the new field a profound
secret���at least until their friends
could be eoniiiiuuicated with and "get
iu early on a gixxl thing. ' Hence it
was that the Skagway papers were
visited, and very substantial offers
made the proprietors to say nothing
for a time at any rate���to " treat the
matter as of no importance." The
newspaper men where more faithful
to the public and tbeir profession than
to be bought, however, and every reliable piece of information regarding
the diggings was published.
First authentic news of the fact that
dirt running from $2 to $H hud been
struck at five feet down, reached Skagway on the last day of July, land the
rush set in tbat cleaned the town, men
and women joining in the mad rush
for claims, Barney Levy was ono of
the original crowd of Skagway rushers, and no doubt has secured a claim
of some sort. Mr. Joshua Holland of
this eity also sent in men to represent
him, and will be among the original
claim holders. H. G. Dolby writes to
his father in this city that he made
up his mind to go���and went���just ns
soon as Policeman French camo to
Skagway, and be saw for himself the

A letter received in Victoria the
other day from Mr. G. H. Martin, tho
special correspondent of the San Francisco Chronicle at Juneau, telling of
the big gold discoveries in northern
British Columbia. In a private note
accompanying tlie story, Mr. Martin
"I have made it absolutely eonserva
five as far as figures and facts are concerned,    It promises to be   a very   big
thing."    Here is the story as   told   by
Mr. Mai-tin:
"Four dollars to the pan at. bed rock

BWOJnp, Such is the latest talo in brief
from the banks of Atlin lake. Old
prospectors of Alaska are shaking their
heads after the manner of Chinese
mandarins their 'I told you so's' are
well taken, as for once tho broad
theorists, who have predicted a continuation of the Klondike region southerly to tho Cassiar and Cariboo, always
selected the Atlin lake region as tlie
scene of a big strike and lhe strike has
eome. The new region is really a
Juneau enterprise���a Juneau man
located the little ereek, whieh is now
the objective point of thousands and as
a result of his policy Juneau men own
32 claims, the  first staked about 'discovery. '
"Fritz Miller is the lucky man.
Prospecting with a partner on June
15th bo found colors in a little stream
running into the Atlin from the east.
At bed rock he found gold and working six men ho now averages ijiliO to a
man per diem. Miller remembers his
friends, so leaving his claim in charge
of his partner and men he came straight
to Juneau, saying nothing on his wayj
Arriving in the lato afternoon, just
two weeks ago, the next morning found
a party on ton hardy prospectors, his
particular friends and comrades, on
their way in.
"A description of tbe scene in the
little miners' headquarters, the Arctic,
where the close mouthed energetic little
band was so hastily organized, sounds
like a romance. Miller's coarse yellow
dust, of which ho had but 20 or 80
ounces "to pay his way," was critically examined and tho next night the
party bought the remainder of their
supplies at Dyea, crossed the pass
with less than a ton and purchased
two boats at the lakes. They naturally excited remark, for they were
old hands and evidently knew where
they were going���of course they wero
followed, but it was no good. The
pace set was too lively. They worked
night and day at the oars, toiling 22
out of tho 24 hours. At Tagish, Miller
went to record with the Canadian
authorities and since the mounted
policemen were allowed to stake, this
meant an announcement to the world.
However, the remainder of the party
had a illi hour stnrt and made their
destination, all succeeding in getting
in first class claims and returning to
record theni and then to Juneau to arrange for working their possessions
and sonding iu tools and food. Ou the
way out they met a large part of the
'permanent' population of Eyea and
Skagway on their way in, most of
them with little or no idea whither
they wero bound.
"The route to reach the new fields is
an intricate one. Through Lake Bennett to the Taku arm, then due south
and finally east* to the rapid running
Atlinoo river. A tedious polo of 12
miles, taking some 24 hours to accomplish, or as an alternative a bad
'siwash' trail, and Atlin lake is
reached���across the lake due east to
tho new stream Pino river, a rapid
stream with tributaries and a lake, in
its sixteen milo course. Discovery is
six miles up stream.
'Fred Carter, one of the lucky ones
and the owner of claim !i2 below discovery, tells tho Chronicle correspondent that he himself panned out on discovery as high as $4 to the pan. He
saw a two day's cloau-up of IS ounces
in rough sluice boxes with no mercury.
Carter is a fine example of the Alaskan
prospector with ten years' experience
in the country. He is very well
known hero and is reliable, Ho will
go in in about two weeks with food
for a year and intends working his
claim which is simply not for sale
"Cartor climbed a bluff near discovery and describes the country as rolling with good timber and little underbrush. As far as the eyo could reach
little streams and lakos lay between
rhe rounded, eroded hills. 'It's a district, not a creok that's been struck,'
is his summing up.
"Game and fish aro abundant, tho
weather is no hot, over 100, the
nights frosty. Float has been found,
but it is too early to predict what tbe
ledges will be. The gold i.s all coarse.
Tho main difficulties to the lake route
aro the swift curront of the Atlintoo
and the alternate trail. If a new routo
is possible it would bo a God-send and
the Taku river near Juneau seems to
hold tho key. Tho distance from the
bead of navigable waters for boats by
tho Taku river to the headwaters of
tho Hootalinqua is small, but a few
miles and the mountains are low. The
Indians havo long used this route to
reach tho lakos. This Hootalinqua
must not bo confounded with tbo river
of the same niune flowing from Lake
Teslin. The Taku routo Hootalinqua
is the 'Hootalinqua of tho Telegraph
survey' and so appears ou tho best
''Some sixty men have joined the
exodus to Pine creek from Juneau. It
is now estimated that 8000 men are on
their way in. The trip from Dyea can
be made in six days. "

"The department is much gratified
at tho desire expressed to see a review
of the warships and cruisers recently
ordered home, and so far as practicable
is desirous of caarryiug out the wishes
of the citizens who wish to see tbe

all other work will bo suspended, and
the entire available force of the navy

"The department will direct that

by a nondescript looking piece of iron
cap. about threo inches square 1 No
wonder the general public passes the
British Columbia section by and looks
for something more attractive.
In a word the exhibit is everything
tliat it ought uot to be, and is calculated to retard rather than udvanoe
the mining interests of tho province.
It is not yet too lato to mend matters.
Canada is just now strongly beforo tho
British public, and, were somo influential and energetic man to tnke the
matter up, there is uo reason why
British Columbia mines should not
be represented in a nuiuner befitting
their wealth and vast resources.
The Toronto Globe, ever in the forefront of everything calculated to advance the interest of the Dominion,
lias mado the suggestion of a World's
Fair to be held iu Toronto in 1001,
and has opened its columns to a discussion on the subject. The scheme
is gigantic, and it naturally takes a
little time for the business men of
Toronto to familiarise themselves with
the idea, but still the first impression
produced seems to be distinctly favorable. A fair sucb as is suggested by
the Globe, is nothing more than the
apotheosis of advertising. Strangers
eome iu and view the country and its
resources. They see before tbeir eyes
the tangible results of the industries of
the country. An indelible impression is made, and, if the produots exhibited are of high quality, increased
trade is the inevitable outcome. There
are also other important results, in tho
shape of the large amount of money
necessarily spent* by tbe visitors.
These, of course, are more of local importance, and constitute tbe well deserved reward reaped by the enterprising community that originates the exhibition. It bas been objected that
such undertakings have resulted iu
financial loss, but tbat is not of itself
a pertiuoiit objection. An exhibition
i8 a business enterprise,and there is no
class of business enterprises that has
not a percentage of failures in its record. The argument that many such
undertakings have succeeded bas far
moro force, for it shows that if the
requisite business judgment and des-
cretion are employed that success may
bo confidently anticipated.
A prominont feature in such an exhibition would be the section devoted
to mining in its various branches.
Thero is probably no department of
modern industry capable of being made
moro attractive from a piotoral point of
viow than a well arranged and carefully selected mineral exhibit. There
is hardly a mine in existence but can
supply most beautiful specimens, the
varied hues of tho different varieties
of copper ore being especially attractive. It may be said that a man does
not invest in mines because he sees a
pretty oxbibit. As a matter of fact he
frequently doos, for if an exhibit of a
particular camp attracts much notico
it gets talked about. This talking
loads to enquiry, and enquiring is sure
to land, in a certain proportion of eases,
to investment.
Thero is an exhibit of British Columbia ores in the Imperial Institute
in London from which great results
Wero expected. These results have hoc
boon attained, but it is not tbe fault
of the exhibition. It does not prove
that those wbo originated the idea indulged in chimerical hopes. Tho fault
lies with the exhibit itself, or rather
with those who selected and arranged
it. Wu are not acquainted witb the
circumstances under wliich tbe collection was made, nor with the facilities
available for its bestowal, and it is
possible tbat everything wus done as
well as tbe various exigencies allowed,
but the fact remains that the exhibit
is meagre mean and scrappy in appearance, in fact utterly unattractive,
Thoro are littlo bits of rock and ore
acattered about the various cabinets of
the section. They are labelled, and
that is all that can bo said for them.
There is uo apparent attempt at systematic arrangement. The specimens
of oro aro frequently bad of their class
and anything but representative of the
mino they purport to como from, and
tho collection conveys no idea whatever of the mineral wealth of the district. Tbo Le Roi mino, for instance,
is, if we   recollect  right, represented
The recent war has given a groat
stimulus to the inventive faculties of
Ihose engaged in devising new and
more terrible engines of destruction.
Thero have been all sorts of crack-
brained contrivances offered to tho
American war ollice of late, though
some few appear to be. of practical use.
Among these latter is a new self moving car which bas greatly interested
military experts. It is equipped with
a Hi-horse power engine and its inventor claims that it can develope a speed
of -10 miles an hour over moderately
easy eountry. It i.s designed to Carry
two quick-firing guns.

A   Brief Sketch   of   the   Life of Lord
Castlereagh, horn June is, 17(1!), died
by   his   own   linutl   August  12,  ISia.
Very curly in life  ho entered tho Irish
parliament, joined the  opposition und
pressed for an   extension of   the   frau-
chise to   Roman Catholics, for the removal of Catholic disabilities   and   for
the right   of   Irishmen   to trade with
India.    Thej French   revolution   however acted on him, us on many others,
to produce   a reaction   against   liberal
and democratic ideas, and be was won I
over  to  the  government   by Camden i
who came   as   lord-lieutenant   to   tell j
Catholics and  reformers   to expect no
further   relief     or    reform,    In   1797
Castlereagh became chief secretary for!
Ireland and at onco   showed high ad- j
niinistrative   ability.    He   co-opernted ;
with Lord Coruwallis in measures  for j
tho   suppression of  the   rebellion, and
had charge of   the vast scheme of corruption   by   which     tho   union     was
brought about.    It* was  understood by
Pitt, Oastlereagh   and Coruwallis tbat
full rights   of   citizenship were   to bo
given to the Catholics   as a reward for
the behavior of somo of   them   during
tbe   rebellion, and to  induce  tbem to
support the union.
Tlie king refused to carry out tho
compact,believing that it was contrary
to his oath. Pitt resigned carrying
Castlereagh and Coruwallis with him.
But Castlereagh though he favored
Catholic emancipation, did not go into
opposition, but supported tho Adding-
ton ministry, and 1S02 entered office,
whero he was retained by Pitt, who
came back in 1804. He was made secretary of stato for war and the colonies, and was said to bo Pitt's right
hand in administration, as Canning
was in debate.
When Grenvillo formed his ministry
gf "all the talents" Castlereagh and
Canning led the opposition, co-operating in polities while disliking and
despising one another. Though both
advocates of Catholic emancipation,
they entered tho cabinet of Portland,
wheh was formed on strictly anti-
Catholic principles. Canning planned
tho expedition to Copenhagen but
Oastlereagh is credited with the executive skill required for carrying it out.
Thero is another dispute as fo which is
entitled to the credit of tbe Peninsular
expedition and tho discovery of the
ability of Wellington. The Walcheren
expedition nearly ruined Castlereagh's
reputation. He prepared it with skill
and secrecy but choso a most unhealthy
island for debarkation, appointed tho
commander for political reasons, and
failed to send enough doctors and hospital ships. Canning resigned, with
the object of forcing Oastlereagh out
on account of tbis failure; nud tliis led
to a duel in which no serious hurt was
received, and botli rivals resigned
In 1812 Oastlereagh became leader of
the House of Commons, guided the

Au Irishman walking over a plank

uecidently dropped a nickel which
rolled down between a crack two of

put out by the. loss, trifling I hough it
wus and continued on his way, swearing audibly,
Early the next day a friend, whilo
walking by the spot discovered the
Irishman deliberately dropping a dollar down tho sumo crack, through
which lie had lost, his nickel. The
friend was ofj course, much astonished at what he saw and desiring to
learn why Pat should to all appearances, deliberately, throw away money,
inquired } his Treasons, Jnnd was fairly
taken off his feet by the following explanation :
It wits this way," said Pat, "it's
yostorday I was passing this way when
I lost a nickel down that hole. Now I
reasoned tbat* it wasn't worth me
while to pull up tliat side walk for u

It   Has Been   Whirling   /.round   in a
Columbia  Eddy for Three Days.
For almost three dnys past the body
of an unknown man has been Moating
idly in an eddy of Iho Columbia just
below Iho town of Waterloo. Who ho
was nobody knows; maybe nobody ever
will know. A bruise on tho fore head
nnd anothor on the loft temple leavo
one to think that thoro was foul play
behind it all. Perhaps, though, tho
marks aro merely tho scratches received from floating logs during tho
days and nights thut the ghastly remains havo been washing up aud
down on tho current.
Sunday morning a woman watching
Iho river sweep by tho camp at Water
loo saw tho body of a man come floating down tho stream. She told tho
men in tho village. Tom Kigley and
Oliver Peleguin, Inking tho nearest
boat at hand, started in pursuit of tho
floating corpse. After a long chase
they secured tbo body and brought it
into tlie eddy just below tho little
town. A gunny sack wus thrown
ovor the faco and tho body anchored
by a ropes and a stono. Since then
tho remains havo beon idly eireling
around iu tho backwater,and all efforts
to identify the body have boon useless.
Although the water hns marred tho
features almost beyond recognition,
yet tho. faco is evidently that of a working man in tho. prime of lifo. Thoro is
neither a beard or a moustache, but
the hair is dark, and over the forehead
it is clustered in a dank little roach
Coroner Bowos was notified of the
finding of the body, but ho ordered
lhe body buried, Tho village folks,
however, hesitated to inter tho remains, und tho derelict has been washing ii]) and down on tho current ever
since. It will most likely be interred
today however,
It is generally supposed that Iho
corpse is lhat of Stanley Hoffman,who
wus drowned recently in tho Kootenay
river. Nobody has identified the
body, liowovor, and tho supposition is
merely a guess. The Columbia near
Waterloo bus boon doing its dreadful
work lately with oven more frequency
than usual. Hast winter Harry Edwards, tho telegraph operator there,
was frozen to doath whilo making his
way up tho stream in a blizzard. His
partner escaped, although fearfully
frozen, but a few days ago ho too was
drowned while making a crossing on
the forry. At tho sumo time a Swede
who was on board at iho time was
nlso drowned. Now comos tho death
of tho present man, as tho latest of the
grim fatalities.
It in n fortunate thing for the Fort

Troublo With the Cubans Volunteers
be Mustered Out- Yellow Fever
Eepo t at Key West,
Washington, Aug. 17.���The war de
partment did not make publio the
despatch from General Lawton, relative to the Cubans in Santiago, but
the order which General Corbin sent
to General Lawton indicates something of its nature. General Lawton
reports that the Cubans are enthusiastic about the city anil do not seem
disposed to accept the conditions imposed by the armistice and some
troubles have occurred.
Secretary Alger today in speaking
of the matter, said it might as well be
fully understood that the United
States would control the surrendered
territory and would manage the affairs
of that territory, Those who remained
within the jurisdiction would have to
obey the laws and officers of the
United States, as General Lawton was
Tho war department began the work
of mustering out the volunteers which
will not he needed in service. The
order was prepared but wns not issued,
as it was deemed to be best to await
news from Manila before disbanding
any of the troops. Ir is expected that
all of the cavalry und artillery of the
volunteer force now in the United
States will be mustered out.
Reports of better conditions in tho
various oarups are being received and
especially do flattering reports come
from Montauk Point, showing that
the soldiers aro being well cared for
Preparations having beeu going forward for the movement of the troops
from the camps which were originally
established in order to scatter theni
about the country.
The first report concerning yellow
fever among the United States troops
in this eountry came from Key West
today. Surgeon General Sternberg believes that it can be kept under control.
The war department has been anxiously awaiting news from Manila all
day. Secretary Alger said tonight
that General Merritt and Admiral
Dewey had full instructions and power
to act und there was not Ihe least
doubt that whatever was done would
be most satisfactory. It might bo that
in tbe change of affairs since the protocol was signed General Merritt
might ask for further instructions but
he had not done so. The war department will welcome the restoration of
the cable comniunieation to Manila, so
that it may nt all times advised as to
the progress of events.
What   Some Contemporaries  Think of
the Crisis.
Tho lieutenant governor seems to
havo lost no time when Hon. Mr.
Beaven announced to him his inability
to form a government and immediately called upon Mr. C. A. Semlin,
leader of the opposition to undertake
it. From tho previous reports that
Mr. Semlin had already attended several times at government house, this
announcement will not occasion much
surprise nor will his honor's evident
desire to put an end us speedily us possible to the present situation, Wo are
not surprised at this but as wo cannot,
but think that his honor unnecessarily
precipitated tho crisis���possibly with
the best intentions and from his extreme solicitude for tlio interests of
the provinco���wo trust that he will
realize fully the difficulties which a
situation ho rare, if not unique, imposes on uny gentleman who muy undertake such an onerous tusk and grunt
any reasonable time for its accomplishment in a manner that will lie satisfactory to tho people as well as to tho
chief executive.���News-Advertiser.
The political situation is slill unsatisfactory. Mr. Beaven cannot form a
government, but, apparently, does not
liko to say so. None of the opposition
leaders will have anything to do with
him, and ho cannot very well call
upon tho supporters of the luto government, though u despatch received this
morning indicates lhat he will go to
this length rather than lose the opportunity of obtaining office. Neither
Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes nor Mr.
Beaven occupies a creditable position
in the business. His Honor has undoubtedly mado a moss of things. Ho
has presumed loo much, aud we fancy,
will have reason to regret his ill-
advised course. Mr. Beaven should
liuve known enough to doc-lino the
lieutenant-governor s proposition. He
must surely recognize by now that
ho is a back number in politics. Ho
has no influence and only a handful of
followers of the monsback stripe in
Victoria. Mr. Beaveu's proper and
dignified courso would havo been to
adviso the lieutenant  governor   to call
There were so many good reasons
why tho Turner government should bo
dismissed that it is unnecessary for
Hon. J. H. Turner to intimate that
bis refusal to offer a portfolio to XV.
Vi. B. Mclnnes, M. P.,wns the motive
which influenced lhe lieutenant-gov
It* is quite easy lo discover public
motives for tho dismissal of the Turner government and it might bo unfair to ascribe the lust action of Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes tothe malice
of a parent disappointed at his failure
to effect tho promotion of his son.
If the lieutenant governor has written lottors to Hon. J. H. Turner in the
interest of his son it will be easy to
convict his honor of plotting for the
advancement of W. Vi. B. Mclnnes.
Such letters would prove tho lieutenant governor false to the tradition
wliich should govern nn occupant of
his high office, and unjust to the dis
tinguished abilities of a son whose
own powers are sufficient* to carry him
forward in politics without the help
of his father's official influence.
British Columbia is well rid of the
Turner government, and the mistake
Governor Mclnnes made wus in not
dismissing the discredited ministry at
flrst sight of its glaring attack on the
right of fair elections in Cassiar. A
government coming buck from the
polls without a majority in the legislature and rejected by a large majority
of the popular voto, had no right to
expect an upright lieutenant governor
to keep his hands off while it sought
to reverse tho verdict of the people by
methods such us those used to sniitrh
a victory in Cassiar.��� Toronto Evening Telegram,

to say that they won't. And they'll
