Eoosevelt Sneers  at tho Naticual Guard
and  Their Arms���Boueh Eiders
no Better Than the Rest
Washington, Aug. 4.���The following
'tirrcspcuideuco  has   passed    between
h Colonel Roosevelt and Secretary Alger:
Santiago, July 38, 1808,
My Dear Mr. Secretary:   lam Writing with the knowledge and  approval
of General Wheeler. We earnestly hope
that yon will send   most of   the   regulars, and nt any rate, the cavalry division, including the Rough Riders, who
jure as good as any regulars  and   three
I times us   good  as  any state troops, to
[Porto Rico.    There, are   ISOO  effective
I men in this  division.    If   those   who
'were left behind were  joined to   them
We could land nt Porto   Rico   in   this
': hvalry division close to 4000 men who
i\viT,.'",*asily be worth   10,000 national
[guaiUs    armed   with  black  powder,
i Springfi.dds or other archaic weapons.
Verv respectfully.
The   following  reply was  cabled to
[Colonel Roosevelt today:
"Your letter of the 2'M\ received today. The regular army, the volunteer
l.ariny and Rough Riders have done
I well, but I suggest that, unless yon
Jwunt to spoil tho effects and glory of
your victory you make no invidious
[comparisons, The Rough Riders are
[no better than other volunteers. They
Iliad un advantage in their arms, for
[which they ought to be very grateful.

|A   Reported   Total   Loss  of  a Trans -
Atlantic   Steamer.
��� St. Johns, Newfoundland, Aug. 4.���
IThe telegraph operator at Tilt Covo,
���the most northern office of Newfound-
Eland, wires that a report has reached
Itthere of the loss of a largo Trans-
I Atlantic line steamer in the vicinity of
iBelle Isle, -with all hands. Particulars

fceems likely there is truth in the re-
Iport, hecauso the Labrador steamer

The steamer referred to in tho above
despatch may be the British steamer

on shore ou Belle Amour point, on the
si raits of Belle Isle. The reports received stated that the cargo was being

Up to tho hour of 7 this evening no
information has been received with
reference to ihe reported wreck of a
large liner near Belle Isle with loss of

steamers does not believe that the
rumor refers tn Ihe steamer Ipsilen,

steamer, and boats have been sent to
the rescue. Full details cannot be got

Though Gorgeous Was   Uiienthusiaslic
and Disappointing.
Berlin, Aug. 4.���Today's Bismarck
ceremony was brilliant and impressive
as regards court display, but quite disappointing in other respects. It bore
traces ol' half-hearli'duess. The church
was inadequately decorated and the
public displayed no enthusiasm in the
ceremony, which so far from having
the exceptional character of a great national mourning for a nation's greatest
Statesman, differed hardly from hundreds of millions that may be witnessed here at any time. Perhaps the
most disappointing feature, though it
was known beforehand, was the fact
tht not a single, member of lhe Bismarck family attended.
Tiie   First  Prize of   the War  Is   Sold
for $19,200.
New York, Aug. 4.���The first prize
steamer captured by the Americans
during Ihe present war, the Buena
Ventura, wns sold today to the highest
bidder, Lewis Lnckenbaoh, for $12,800.
The price is considered a good one.
The Buena Ventura was oapfcnrefl by
the gunboat Nashville off Key West
on April 21, the day war was declared.
Yesterday evening Postmaster James
A.   Gilker received   a   telegram   from
j Rossland   announcing   the  sad   news
that Pred S. Walker, clerk in the Nel-
| son   postoffice,   had   died there   at   u
The. deceased was a young man of 21
years of age, and since boyhood has
been troubled with an affection of one
of his enrs, which at times impaired
his hearing and caused him considerable annoyance, On Tuesday he received a letter from his brother, F. J.
Walker, of Rossland, stating that there
was an ear specialist in that city and
advising him to go over and consult
him, Fred and his sister, Mrs.(Hiker,
left on the (1:40 traiii Wednesday evening, and at that time was apparently
in good health, his ear trouble not
causing him any special annoyance.
Upon receipt of the telegram Mr.
Gilker telephoned to Rossland for particulars and was informed by F, J.
Walker that Pred had died from the
effects of the bursting of a bloood vessel in his brain and tliat death was instantaneous. The message did not
stale whether the fatal ending was the
result of nn operation or not.
The sad news quickly spread through
the city aud niauy were tho expressions of regret, as the deceased was deservedly popular with everyone of his
acquaintances and friends. He was a
young man of courteous demeanor, and
in his offloial capacity in tho Nelson
postoffice did his duty m a conscientious manner. He was a native of
Richibueto, N. B., and came to Nelsou in May, 1*17, and secured a situation with his brother-iu-law in the
postoffice, His mother was here on a
visit of several months this year and
left a short time ago to visit a
daughter in tho Boundary district.
He has also a brother and sister in
Rossland and four brothers in Minneapolis, His father died last February.
Fred was au enthusiastic baseball
player and played lirst huso for the
Nelson team this season. His sudden
death has cast a gloom among the
young people of the city, in many of
whose innocent pleasures he was a
leading spirit. On Tuesday evening
he accompanied the exclusion party
to Balfour, on which occasion ho was
full of life and energy and no one
would then have Chough! that in so
short a time lie would be cold] in
His relations have not yet decided as
to where the remains will be buried,
but the funeral will most likely be
held in Nelsou.
His aged mother, his brothers and
sisters and other friends have the most
sincere sympathy of Ihis community
in their sad bereavement.

A   Largely   Attended   and    Gorgeous
Ceremony at St. Michael's.
Toronto, Aug. 4.���The funeral of the
late Archbishop Walsh was celebrated
this morning wilh great solemnity
and gorgeousness. St. Michael's
cathedral was packed from an early
hour, many publio men being present,
including the Hon. W. R. Scott,

San Francisco, Aug. I.���G.E. Sevey,
president of the American Steam
Navigation company, who has just arrived from China, fears an outbreak
among the hordes of China in both the
northern and central provinces, and believes that great loss of life and destruction of property will result.
Iu an interview he says: "Owing to
the effects of drouth, destitution is certainly impending for millions of natives. The poorer classes have been
squeezed by the mandarins and Chinese governors to such au extent that
nothing is left them but their existence. This year there will be nothing
for the governors to draw out of the
people. There are several thousand
American missionaries working in
northern and central China, aud when
the uprising comes, as I think it will.
for these t'amino-strieken Chinese will
tight for food, they will be among the
first to suffer. Iu Wuhu an outbreak
was threatened recently, hut the English governor, acting for the Chinese
government, dared the mob. He furnished his troops with rifles aud is
awaiting any attack that might come.
He in turn threatened destruction to
the Chinese malcontents should they
al tempt, any violence.
Residents of New   Chang  Try  to Ob
tain a Concession of Land.
London, Aug. 4.���A despatch to a
local news agency says:
Efforts are boiug made,  by the British colony at  New Chang, in coujunc*
tion with the  Japanese, to obtain con
cessions for tho neighborhood as a pro
posed railway terminus.    New   Chang
is a town and treaty  port in the prov
ince of   Liao Tong, on   the  navigable
river Liaou, near tho  gulf of   Pechili
The matter hns been   referred  to  the
local tautai (the ruler of  two or  more
departments of  a province united into
a tan), whoso dilatoriness  in the mat
ter   is declared to  be   duo to Russian
bribes.    It   is   impossible   to overestimate   tho   importance   of    obtaining
a proper  footing in a  regon where already Russian influence preponderates.
A great proportion of   the Now Chang
Irado   is   in American goods, and this
fact  renders  the   co-operation of   the
United Stntes  minister   and   his support of the British demand  necessary,
for the gravity of  the situation is understood.
An imperial decree was issued today
establishing a central bureau of inining
and railway administration under the
presidency of tho two cabinet ministers.
Nicaragua  Canal   and   the   Hawaiian
Cable���Two Results of the Wnr.
Chicago, Aug. 4.���Tho Hawaiian
commission, composed of Senator Cul-
lom of Illinois. Senator Morgan of A"
boma and Representative Hitt of
nois, met hero and had an infori
talk with a number of business mf
Senator Morgan said whilo nt tho
Union club thnt the annexation of
Hawaii would result in the construction of the Nicaragua canal. Not only
would the Nicaragua caual be constructed, he snid, but there would be a
ship canal connecting Luke Michigan,
the Mississippi and the Gulf of Mex
ico. and one also between New YoA
nnd Albemarle. Hitt nlso spoke of
tho certainty of the Nicaragua canal as
one of the results of tho war, also a
cable to Hawaii. Ex-Seuator Regan
said it might bo ns well he written
down thut (Julia would soon be a part
of the United States, and thnt Un-
American nation was interested in the
const met ion of the Nicaragnan canal.
Mr. Ogilvie Will Have No Jurisdiction
Over License  Regulations.
Toronto, Aug. 4.���The Mail and Empire charges that in appointing Mr.
Ogilvie to tho coiiimissionership of tho
Yukon, the minister has again appointed a relative. Mr. Ogilvio says
the regulation of licenses will be outside of his jurisdiction altogether and
in the bunds of the department of the
interior, but it i.s not unlikely that the
department will listen to suggestions
made by the commissioner and council. He thinks that the year's output,
will not amount to over $20,000,000.
He thinks that when the output is
made known there will bc a very large
influx into the Klondike.

Sagasta Moving Oautious'y���Augusti
a Popular Hero.
Madrid, Aug., 4 4 p. m.���Senor Sagasta, the premier, conferred today
with the presidents of both chambers of
the cortes, and is now conferring with
Martinez Campos and the Duke of
Teutan, minister of foreign affairs in
the last cabinet of the late Senor Can-
ovns. Until the official account of the
pence negotiations is published, the
utmost secrecy will be observed.
It is announced from Havana that
the town of Gibora, on tho north coast
of Santiago de Cuba province, has been
evacuated by the Spanish troops and
that the rebels on entering killed 18
volunteers. General Arolas, military
governor of Havana, has asked tho
local newspapers to take up the question of the best way to distribute the
available food supplies in the city.
General Blanco bas decreed a suspension of the sittings of the insular
Madrid, Aug. 4.���The consultations
between the premier, tho presidents of
tho chambers nnd other prominent persons are. described as being really of a
national character, with a view to ascertaining tho opinions of all parties.
The government has not yet entered
upou an engagement regarding the
terms for concluding the war with the
United States. The cabinet will follow tho advice of tho leaders and will
leave to the crown the liberty of choosing new advisers. All the leaders thus
far consulted have observed the strictest reserve with the exception of Senor
Romero y Robledo, tlio leader of tho
Weylerite party, who declares himself
in favor of continuing the war. The
Queen Regent has summoned several
generals for consultation.
London, Out, Aug. 4.���The Outario
government has chosen the Mackenzie
property in South London as a site for
tho new normal school.
London, Aug. 4.���The Madrid correspondent of the Times says :
Though peaco is regarded as assured,
it may not be attained so quickly as is
generally expected. Senor Saganta ob-
jocts to being hustled and insists upon
everything being dono iu a quiet,
orderly and dignified manner. He
considers it necessary to have a full
and satisfactory explanation as to all
doubtful points in ortkc to enable him
to protect tlie iK^feual interests

?ho Spanish people, though sincerely
irons of peace, aro disposed to ad-
this hesitancy and hold out to the,
though it, imposes greater sac-
cos. As an illustration of this feeling, while General Toral is blamed for
capitulating at Santiago, Captain General Augusti, continuing a hopeless resistance at Manila, bids fair to he a
popular hero. It would be premature
to suppose that the political consultations now proceeding foreshadow tho
resignation of the liberal cabinet, when
peace is concluded. The conservatives
havo so constantly and loyally supported Sagasta throughout the war
that, no factious opposition need bo expected from them.
Elections ut Cape  Colony Are Causing
Great Excitement.
Cape Town, Aug. 4.���The colonial
elections,wliich occur September 4, are
already causing excitement. Personalities nro rampant, and the air is
thick with the most serious allegations
against the leaders of both factions!
Cecil Rhodes, the former premier of
Cape Colony, who at first held aloof,
is now in the thick of the campaign
and is carrying the fight into the camp
of the Afrikanderhund. Ho charges
President Kruger of tho Transvaal republic with using secret service money
to support, tho candidates of tho Afrikanderhund,
Sir J. Gordon Sprigg, tho premier,
and Messrs. Rose, Jones, Smuts nnd
Brabant will be returned without opposition.
Messrs. Rhodes and Hill havo
nominated Mr. Barclay West, who is
supported by an overwhelming majority of tho voters. Nevertheless, tho
candidates of the Afrikanderhund demand a poll in every instance. Five

ho lay in slate, will be historic whilo
that stately pile remains. What a contrast in the case of Bismarck. He had
wreaths in plenty of course,and official
condolences without end, but where
are the signs of popular lovo and affection? The commemoration service in
Berlin is described as half-hearted,
disappointing and perfunctory, yet
Bismarck did more for Germany than
Gladstone ever had the opportunity to
do for Kngland. Perhaps the explanation i.s that" Bismarck was, as he has
often been called, a man of blood and
iron, und recked not of the means that
brought the desired end, while Gladstone, with all his faults, loved tho
people, and the. people knew it.

It has long been the dream of many
enlightened Canadians to see Canada
the source of the food supply of Great
Britain. There is no reason, it has
been frequently urged, that, in view of
the immense undeveloped resources of
the Dominion, Cauada should not in
time export all tho grain England requires, and also supply |her with
fruit butter and eggs. A few years
ago it seemed to many that it was too
much to expect that the present generation would seo such a development
in our~country. It is not so now. The
export of wheat is increasing by leaps
and bouuds, and under a wise immigration policy the. country is rapidly
filling up with settlers of the right
class. No less than 12,000 such men
havo come into the country since the
beginning of this year
It is not only in the direction of
wheat production that the government
have bent their energies. They knew
that England imported annually large
quantities of fresn fruit, and they saw
that Canada could produce unrivalled
fruits as cheaply as California, the
continental nations or any of the old
sources of supply. Commissioners
were sent over to ascertain the preferences and tastes of the English market,
and lust year the first sorious attempt
was mado to introduce fresh fruit
from Canada. It was an experiment,
which did not succeed in every case
because of the absence of scientific
packing. This year all the mistakes
of the first season will bo avoided, as
the most minute instructions havo
been given us to how thu fruit should
be collected and stored, how packed,
and when it should be sent. There
was, and is, no reason why this trade
should not be an unqualified success.
Our peaches are unequalled ; our apples,
pears and tomatoes were readily
bought up when they arrived in a
fresh condition, and now that tho
difficulties of proper storage have been
met, tho fruit will arrive in Covent
Garden in as good condition as when
it left the orchard.
Throughout the northwest, too, the
government is sedulously fostering the
butter making industry. The dairy
stations will, by and by, become cooperative creameries, managed by the
farmers themselves. In the meantime
the government advances 10 cents per
pound on the quantity of butter mado
from cream supplied by the farmers.
During the last year the government
dairy stations inthe North West Territories produced half a million pounds
of butter. The work of tho government is limited to the establishment of
tho industries, aud thero is no intention of doing more than to put the institutions in a position where they ,'iui
fend for themselves.
With unparalleled resources, an industrious people and a government
ever on the alert to guard and advance
the country's interests it is no wonder
that Canada's future looks brighter today, aud every day, than it ever has
iu tho past.
We publish today among our despatches a letter from Colonel Roosevelt, of the Rough Riders, to Mr.
Alger, the United States secretary of
war,and also the latter's reply thereto.
Seldom, we suppose, has an official in
Mr. Alger's position received such an
extraordinary missive. The unbounded
cheek it shows is simply amazing,
The colonel of a regiment in the field
writes to the head of the war department making suggestions as to the
arrangements for the next campaign
incidentally stating that his own regiment is worth three times as much ns
lhe other volunteer regiments and
sneering at the arms provided for the
latter by the government, Iu any
other service an officer who presumed
in such a way would be deprived of
his command. The Rough Riders have
undoubtedly distinguished themselves,
and they were probably up till now
the most popular regiment in the field.
We shall be very much mistaken, how
ever, if the execrable taste displayed by
thoir colonel does not cause a strong
revulsion of feeling.

HaughtoU Mich., yiz. : Tho Red
Junket shaft of the Calumet und Hecla
���tho greatest mining shaft in the en-
tiro World, It is 4900 feet doop, and,
compared with it, the (loop silver
mines of the Comstock lode, in Nevada,
or the wonderful mines in Austria,
worked for many centuries past, nro
but shallow pits. Thero are six compartments, says the New York Sun,
each equal in size to an ordinary mining shaft, four of these, being used for
hoisting rock and lowering timber;
one is used for the ladder ways, and
the sixth and last compartment carries
the wires and pipes for telephones,
light, powor, water and compressed
air. The underground workings of the
���shaft are laid out with mathematical
accuracy, the undeviating course of the
copper-bearing lode allowing work to
be planned thousands of feet ahead of
the mineral picks. Tho great pumps
wliich free the. mines from water are,
operated interchangably by compressed
air and electricity. The power drills
which eat the holes for tho dynamite
cartridges are rim by compressed uir
alone, and there are more (han three
hundred of these drills, each doing the
work of a dozen men, working both
night and day, in tho Calumet and
Hecla mine.

If we were, to break suddenly upon a
London cyclist and tell that within 20
miles of his great city thero was a colony of wild kangaroos, he would probably either regard us as perverters of
the, truth or of being in immediate
need of a straightjaoket. Yet wo aro
assured on the highest authority that
such is the case, the. colony existing on
Leith Hill common. About 14 years
ago some kangaroos escaped from
Wootton House, where they had been
kept in confinement. They took up
their quarters near Leith hill and have
remained and multiplied there oyer
since. It seems strange that such emblems of the far west should exist in a
wild state where the great throb of
London might almost be felt and where
the hum of the wheel during the summer months is almost an unceasing
song.���London Bicycling News.

that red-headed people are far less apt
to go bald than those with other colored hair. Tho average crop on the

Olio to 160,000 are quite a common
number of hairs on the sculp of a fair-

calculation bus been made,to the effect!
that the hairs on tho head of a fair-

on lhe (iiiiteiiiiii and Simene twn of the
claims of the Slug Ten group, on Ten
Mile, a return of 804 oz in silver, wilh
lead and copper of value, has been received. Last weok another sample,
whieh proved lo be agenile, gave the
phenomenal assay of 87 per cent pure
silver. This season's work on thc Slug
Ten group has proven the the ledge in
plane, with good mineral iu a number
of openings, a f 'attire of the ore being
thn strongly marked presence of copper. The ledge shows a width of almost 110 feet, whieh eontains several
well defined mineral-bearing stringers
of quartz.
On the Orilla, the fourth and lowest
claim in the group, a second ledge
gives surface returns of 80 oz in silver,
the ore being a zine blende. This group
adjoins and parallels the Enterprise on
the east, and its locality and situation
give it additional value apart from its
own showing. The work done on the
property consists of three crosscut tunnels and a number of open cuts. The

No   Conversion of   Africa Possible   if

A particularly interesting reminiscence of (Ieneral Cordon was given
recently   at   the   Shoreditch town hull
by the Archbishop of Canterbury, who
presided over a meeting convened in
the, interest of the universities mission
lo Central Africa. Very shortly before
starting for Khartum, in 1884, Cordon
came to thn temple to consult, him on
three problems, the (irst of which was
whether as a more layman he would
be justified in endeavoring to convert
thc natives and even to baptize them.
To that the archbishop answered certainly���every Christian was at liberty
alike to preach and to baptize.
Cordon then propounded a plan he
had for buying slaves a thousand at
time, drilling tliem thoroughly and
perhaps making ten per cent good
soldiers, giving freedom ultimately to
all, and asked whether slave-buying
would be justifiable. Again ihe archbishop could reassure his scruples and
pointout that Unpurchased with a view
to giving them liberty tho aet would be
compatible with the highest Christian-
ity. The ultimate difficulty however,
was polygamy, Cordon explained that
a man had rarely less Ihan four wives,
as this number sufficed lo maintain
him. and asked whether Christian
tenets could sanction a limited plurality of wives. But on Ihis Dr. Temple
admitted he eould give no justifying
permission whatever, and to establish
a pseudo religion without so elementary a principle of morality would
be highly reprehensible, "Then," said
Cordon, "Africa is a long was from
conversion if one wife is made tliu
essential of it. "���London Telegraph.
A curious lawsuit has been brought
against* the cabinet of the Russian empress by a porter. The empress recently lost her insignia of thn Royal
Order of Victoria and Albert, and to
the porter who foundjit she presented a
reward of 100 marks. The laws of
Russia, however, provide that one who
may restore a lost article to its owner
can claim one-tenth of its value ; and
the finder in this ease contends that
the jewel was worth considerably more
thun ten times thn amount ho received. He seeks to recover the difference,

expectation at the state department
that perhaps toward the close of the
afternoon some word might be received
from Spain through the French ambassador in reply to the president's deliverance yesterday on the subject of
tho peaee conditions. This expectation
was based upon the faot that the terms
themselves bad not been modified in
any essential point, so that there was
little occasion for the prolonging of
the discussion by the Spanish cabinet,
which was presumed to have thoroughly- considered this matter before
sending the first reply. However, it
was perceived from the news despatches that the Madrid cabinet meeting hud been inconclusive, so it was
then presumed that* nothing definite
could be expected before tomorrow
noon at tbe earliest.
There is a confident belief among
the administration officials that the
Spanish government will accept the
terms laid down by the president,
though Spain may try first to obtain
some further modifications. This, however, cannot be accomplished, and the
French ambassador, who is well aware
of that faet, unquestionably has so informed the Spanish government,
though that government has preserved
its record in good form to meet the
criticism of its political opponents by
submitting the counter proposition
submitted yesterday by M. Oambon to
the president. Meanwhile preparations
for the projected expedition go on

Peculiar Divorce Customs in Vogue in
Various Countries.
Easy are tho methods of settling
domestic difficulties in Upper Burmah.
When the husband finds that his better
half is not the unalloyed blessing he
had beeu led to think, Jio calls into his
house all the old men and women of
his village, and expresses his desire to
divorce her, and a trial by candle is
The husband the wife are each given
a candle, whieh they light simultaneously at the order of the oldest person
present, and place it in the middle of
the floor. Then every one in the
house sits around and watches to seo
which candle burns out first. If tho
wife's does so the husband has a right
to divorce her, even against her will,
and turn her and her relations out of
his house, without more ado.
If, on the other hand, the husband's
candle burns out first, the wife has the
option and right of refusing a divorce
or agreeing to it, and turning her husband relations out of the house, which,
with all goods and chattels it contains,
becomes her personal property.
In Coehin-Chiua, when a husband
wife find they can no longer agree
they give a dinner, to which they invite their relations, and the patriarch
cf the village. The latter during the
meal takes tho chopsticks of the pair
and breaks them, and by his action
they are legally divorced.
Wilh a certain tribe of African savages, when a husband desires to be rid
of his spouse���a fairly common occurrence���ho takes her to thc door of his
lint or tent, and strikes her across the
back with three rushes three times,
crying in his savage tongue at each
blow, "Wicked, naughty, bad," which
constitutes the tribal form of divorce.
A husband in Madagascar may divorce his wife for the most absurdly
trivial offence. All ho has to do is to
cull hisjfriends and relations to the door
of his house, aud in their presence
give his wife a small coin and push
her out, saying, "Madam, I thank
you ; go. " An underdone dinner will
amply justify him.
When divorce is mutually agreed
upon by a Japanese pair they wend
their way to the temple where they
are accustomed to worship with a large
scarf tying them together by the arms.
Kneeling before the altar they bow
three rimes, and, having undone the
scarf, they rise aud depart by different doors, and bv this formality become divorced.���London Tit-Bits.
President Kruger, though ho lives
