Loudon, July 28.���A special despatch from Madrid says:
The government does not conceal
that it hesitated for some days to go
beyond an official exploration at Wash-
iutou, because the diplomatic agents
employed to mako the soundings gave
conflicting accounts of President Mc-
Kinloy's disposition. One represented
him as eager to terminate the war on
moderate conditions, the other that the
most onorous conditions would be im-
posed.so much so that the Madrid government thought it useless to sue officially.
When, however, it, was seen that the
American war preparations eontinu 'tl
Duke Alniodovar do Rio, minister of
foreign affairs, was instructed to
sond the note. Tlie cbainet met on
Woduosday evening to deliberate as to
the best means and ehannel ot negotia
tions. Paris Fund London were, both
diaoussed, No decision was arrived
at, but a majority favored sending
Senor Moret, former minister of tho
colonies, on a special mission to London to negotiate the treaty ot peace
with Ambassador Hay.
Official fooling favors direct* negotiations without interference from outsiders. Thero is little doubt (hat if
President McKinley's reply proves an
aoCeptable basis, the negotiations will
not be protracted,since Spain for many
reasons is desirous of speedy settlement, and uot. least* so because at the
present moment public opinion is
calm. After today's cabinet council
Senor Sagasta, the premier, said he
had grounds for hoping that an understanding would bo arrived at, but could
say nothing definite.
El Imparcial says that tho Carlist
agitation whieh at lirst appeared to
be tramped out has recommenced in
tho provinco of Cuenca and in parts of
Will Not Permit the United  States to
Havo a Weather Station.
Washington, July 28.���The govern-
i ment of Hayti has declined to permit
, the United States to establish a
weather station ou its domain. Its
J action follows a roquost for this privi-
I lego made by the secretary of ^stato at
1 the instance of the secretary of agri-
I culturo,   with an  express explanation
of its purposes, and the Haytinu government would bavo got ib,, benefit
of the United States weather service.
All of the other governments ap-
proaohed for authority to establish
weather stations have agreed, including San Domingo.
Spain     Will     Probably     Receive   an
Answer ou Friday or Saturday.
Washington, July 28.���Secretary of
State Day was eloseted with President
McKinley for less than half an hour
this afternoon over the. response to
Spain's note suing for peace. When he
left the White house Mr. Day announced that the reply of this government would be given'to Spain on Friday or Saturday Meantime its tenor,
so far as the administration is ablo to
do so, is to be closely guarded from
the public.
Toronto, July 28.���Horse dealers report a great scarcity of first-class coach
and draught horses. It is with difficulty that a decent shipment can bo
collected in the province, although
prices of first-class animals are quite
satisfactory. The demand for high
elass horses is as great as it has ovor
been, and prices are just as high.
Ottawa, July 28.���Washington and
New York despatches have given
August 10 as the dato of the Quebec

the event, but if August 10 suits the
convenience of Lord Herschell and the
American commissioners thoy will acquiesce. Herschell left New'York yesterday for Ottawa, but has not yet

Washington, July 82.���The terms
which the United States will find ac
oeptable as a basis of peace are being
reduced to form by Secretary Day, the
president having reached a conclusion
on their outlines. The terms wero the
formal subject of interest and discus
sion in official circles today. There is
the best reason to believe after the full
conferences the president has had individually with the members of his
cabinet that ho has already mado up
his mind, aud that Secretary Day has
even now practically reduced to form
the reply the United States will make
to tho Spanish government's overture
through Ambassador Cambon.
The point that seems to be opon to
au amendment of an extensivo character is the disposition of the Philippines. While the administration has
not failed to take notice of the extent
of the demand for their acquisition by
the United States exhibited in certain
sections of the country,it can bo stated
that the conclusion has beeu reached
to abide by its first decision on this
point, namely, to relinquish the
islands, retaining a coaling station
there surrounded by a sufficient zono
of land to make it self supporting. It
is possible, though not probable, that
its decision may be again changed before the cabinet disposes of the matter
tomorrow, us strong influences are at
work to inducjjthe pr-esidont to insist
upou the substitution of, at leaBt, an
independent government over tho Philippines, for Spanish rule.
If this |point^ should be difficult of
settlement the answer to Spain may
not bo rendered, but may have to wait
upon another cabinet meeting next
week. Tho report from Madrid toward
the close of tho day that the newspapers there had given their approval
to the terms of peace described by the
president went toward relieving a certain feeling of discouragement tbat
was manifested at the opening of the
day, for it was patent that members of
the administration apprehended a rejection of their demands by Spain at
the beginning.
It may be pointed out in this connection that if we really aro as near to
peace as many people believe, it will
become necessary to issue a call for an
extra session of the senate to act
promptly upon the peace treaty. No
word camo from General Miles today,
and the war department assumes that
he is pursuing his advaiico across the
island of Porto Rico towards San Juau.
They attach little credence to the
Spanish account of tho battle of
Yacuaco, resting confident in the belief
that when the facts are known it will
bo found that this victory is of the
Spanish type, resulting m the complete
success of tho American commander.
Reinforcements are now arriving to
support Miles, and before this week is
over the campaign will bo in full
A Carlist  Rising Would  Probably  Be
Unsuccessful���Press  Opinions,
London, July 28.���Tho Madrid correspondent of tho Daily Mail remarking" the feelings of satisfaction and relief that peaco overtures have produced, '' says:
'' There is littlo probability of popular discontent and none at all if Spain
is allowed to retain the Philippines
and is not compelled to pay indemnity.
Tho attitude of the poople makes the
chances of Don Carlos small. Moreover, the Carlists are said to diasgree
about the advisability of rising, tho
Marquis do Corrablo and others opposing the step. Nevertheless, it is feared
that Don Carlos will insist upou it. "
Tho Madrid correspondent of tho Daily
Telegraph says : '' However unpalatable
the terms of waco may be, thoy will
uot provoke tlie slightest disturbance
in Spain, where listless indifference is
The Berlin correspondent of the
Times says: "Tho terms of peace
which America has imposed occasions
surprise here as much too hard. "
Tho National Gazette remarks that
the United Slates havo not won a victory signal enough to warrant such
hard terms, and expresses the opinion
that the prospects of peace aro consequently gloomy.
The Times, commenting upon thc
suggestion of the National Gazette,
"This suggestion from a .would-be
friend of Spain shows that theso critics
entirely fail to grasp tho military
significance of  America's sea  power.
Only by prompt and straightforward
dealings with President McKinley can
Spain urevent the advance of the
American army."
The Vienna correspondent of the
Daily Telegraph says the projoct of a
European conference regarding the
Philippines was brought forward long
ago, aud there is every prospect tbat
tlie conference will meet in Paris.
Captain Smith  Publishes  His   Report
of the Collision.
Halifax, N. S., July 28.���Captain
Smith, R. N. R., government wreck
commissioner, made public today his
report on the result of tho inquiry into
the causes of the collision betweeu the
French steamer La Bourgoyne uud the
British ship Cromartyshire, whioh resulted in the loss of the former vessel
with over 500 on board. Captain
Henderson and the officers of the
Cromartyshire were declared free from
responsibility for the disaster and their
conduct after the collision was pronounced to have been praiseworthy.
As for the La Bourgoyne, the evidence, it is asserted, is clear that instead of endeavoring to avoid the
Cromartyshire, she made no effort to
do so. She was running, too, at a veiy
high rate of speed when she should
have only maintained a moderate rate
on account of the thick fog which prevailed. Besides she was a long distance out of the course laid dowu in
the Atlantic pilot chart.
Captain Smith expresses the opinion
that it is desirable that new routes be
selected for passenger steamers to aud
from American ports. These routes,
he says, should be established by law
aud adopted by the governments of
various nationalities and should be
laid down where the least amount of
fog would be met.
Sterling Exchange Sells Freely Owing
to the Absence of War Tax.
London, July 28.���Considerable interest was taken today in foreign exchange banking circles in the sale of
Canadian-London sterling exchange in
thia city by .the agents and representatives of the Canadian U��uks at lens
than the ordinary market rates for
sterling exchange by reason of its not
being subject to the United States in
ternal revenue duties of four cents for
each $100, which is equivalent to a tax
of $2 ou $1000.
Foreign bankers said they were satisfied from their own knowledge that,
since the tax went into force at least
three or four times as much Canadian
sterling exchange had been sold in this
city compared to the amount usually
sold beforo the first of July, the date
on which the law became operative.
They did not believe, however, that it
was sold by or for the agents of the
four Canadian banks doing business
here regularly, but was sold by brokers
representing several Canadian banks
that have no regular agencies here.
Chamberlain Replies to Questions on
the Newfoundland Difficulty.
London, July 28.���Replying in the
house of commons today to Sir Charles
Dilke, who asked what answer the
French commodore gave to the British
protest against the tearing down of
huts at Flat bay, Newfoundland, by
the crews of warships for illicitly
packing lobsters, the secretary of state
for the colonies, Joseph Chamberlain,
said the commodore had not admitted
it was au infringement of the treaty
of Utrecht. Her Majesty's government,
Mr. Chamberlain added, was considering the appointment of a commission
to inquire into the shore question.
He   Sends  a  Jocular  Message to  the
Foreign Athletes.
Hamburg, July 28.���The Hamburger
Nachrichten says: Priuce Bismarck's
condition still gives employment to his
physicians, but there is no ground for
anxiety. The pain from which ho has
beeu suffering continues, but the last
two nights have been comparatively
good. His appetite begins to improve
and his spirits are good.
Wheu told yesterday that tho foreign
athletes had called at the castle to pay
their respects, ho said: 'Toll them I
myself have been standing ou my
head for a week.''
M. Lockroy Will Legislate for the Safeguarding of Ocean Navigation.
Paris, July 28 ���M. Edouard^Lock-
roy, minister of marine, has decided
to order a fresh inquiry into the loss
of La Bourgoyne. If, as it is feared,
any of the "crew failed to do thoir
duty, they will be punished. M.
Lockroy has also decidod to submit to
the chamber of deputies a bill providing means for the better safeguarding
of ocean navigation.

Washington, July 28.���The demand
of Italy upon Columbia for tho settlement of the Cerotti claim has not yet
been complied with, and although
some progress has been made towards
au adjustment there is still a possibility that the case may assume a grav e
aspect through the action of the Italian
fleet sent to demand a settlement some
days ago.
Colombia made an offer to settle if
the Italian fleet left Colombian waters,
thus relieving the republic from tho
humiliation of acting under pressure,
but it is understood that tho Italiau
government pointed out that Colombia
had been informed of the proposed arrival of the squadron and therefore had
time for the execution of tho award
and thus to eliminate every appearance
of coercion.
It appears, however, that the instructions to the Italian admiral gave
him discretion as to his mode of proceeding, and allowed him to give due
courtesy to Colombia should time be
asked. For that reason the admiral
fixed a period of 20 days within which
the claim should be paid. Whether the
ultimatum was accepted or not is not
clear, but in view of Italy's position,
the action of the admiral appears to be
very near an ultimatum to Colombia.
Colon, Colombia, July 28.���It is reported from Cartagena that four eases
of Sporadic yellow f��ver brve been discovered among American's who recently arrived there. Future arrivals
���will be subjeot to strict quarantine.
The Italian squadron was still there
Berlin, July 28.���The Loudon correspondent of the Cologne Gazette says :"
"I learn that the ��� United States recently requested Italy to abstain from
forcible measures to compel Colombia
into oompliance with Mr. Cleveland's
award in the Cerutti caso, promising
American influence te secure the payment, "
Italy replied that her patience was
exhausted aud that she would abide by
the ultimatum of Admiral Gambiani.
The Washington government thereupon applied unofficially to Great
Britain asking ber to use her influonco
at Rome in support of the American
request. Euglaud's reply is not divulged.
Mr. Ashcroft Would  Have Thom Protected by  Legislation.
London, July 28.���In the houso of
commons tomorrow Mr. Robert Ashcroft, conservative member for Oldham, will ask the government leader,
Mr. A. J. Balfour, the first lord of the
treasury, whether iu view of the revelations made by Mr. Ernest Terah
Hooley, the company promoter, in tho
bankruptcy court as to the payments
made to peers and others, the government at the next session of parliament will appoint a committee to consider means for protecting company
Cervera Sends His   Roport of  His Defeat Through   M. Cambou.
Washington, July 28.���Admiral Cervera has forwarded to tho Spanish
government his full report of the naval
engagement which resulted in the annihilation of the Spanish fleet. The

pages of the admirals handwriting.
After a formal inspection it was then
sent to Ambassador Cambon to bo forwarded to the Spanish admiralty.

Two years ago, when it was found
that the Laurier government had been
successful at the polls, the defeated
party predicted a contraction of business and financial embarrassment
bordering on ruin as the necessary result
of tho advent of tho new administration lo powor. Sir Wilfred Laurier
has now held the reins of office for a.
little over two years, and Canada from
tho Atlantic to the Paciiic is enjoying
a measure of prosperity hitherto unequalled. It is not contended, of
course, that the liberal government
can elaim exclusive credit for the
present prosperous condition of Canada, but that meed of praise wliich is
undoubtedly due to the wise and
prescient statesmanship that lakes advantage of and fosters improved conditions of trade may be certainly

Although no official announcement
has yet been made, it would appear
that the American demands will not
bo so great as has been hitherto anticipated. The cession of Porto Rico and
Cuba seems lo le liuitly accepted by
both sides as a condition precedent to
peace, but Spain seems likely to retain
the Philippines, though a coaling
station will probably be ceded. There
has been no mention, either, of a war
indemnity,and if Spain manages to retain the Philippines and has no indemnity-to pay sho will escape much
moro cheaply than seemed likely from
tho temper of the American people.
.Such an ending to the war, too, would
go far to substantiate the original
American declaration that thc war was
waged in the interests of humanity
and not for tho sake of territorial

Large Amount of Gold From the, Cariboo Hydraulic Mine.
Last Tuesday's stago brought down
in all 178,700 in gold of which $(W,r>00
was from the Cariboo hydraulic mine,
the result of tho first* run this season
at thnt famous mine. Tho result was
better by some thousands than was expected. The next wash-up,if the water
holds out, will be very large. In any
case, there will be good re I urns, for
there is water enough to justify three
predictions. But for the great results
we must wait until next year, when
the Morehead ditch will be completed
and the immense reservoirs filled at
Moorheitd lake, two sets of giants working a mile apart on different parts of
the great mine, and tho returns will
assuredly convince any and all that the
greatest gravel mine on earth is tho
one at Quesnelle Forks known us the
Cariboo hydraulic.
Of the balance of the gold brought
down, one lot was $8800, one $1000 and
one if 11)00. Theso lots were from Horsefly and Barkerville, the results of the
mill run ou cement.
At the Horsefly all is said to tie
vory satisfactory and that the cemented
gravel has yielded on an average more
than twice as high as last year. This
is only rumor, but it is. now generally
believed that the property is ou a paying basis and that the work will be
continued from now on. Mr. Ward
brought down also $5000 in dust* as the
result of three days' run in oue part of
tlio mine where they hnd to wash up
on account of moving boxes. Mr,
Ward states that the ground is showing up well. Mr. Ward's boy, a lad of
1-t, who has spent four weeks at
Horsefly, panned four pans one night
after supper tind tho next evening four
more pans, from a six-inch streak of
gravel in which .you can plainly see
the gold. The result in each case was
about $80, or $5 per pan. The showing
is, all in all, very satisfactory and all
goes to show that with depth coarse
gold will be fouud. Mr. Ward having
pieces weighing from $2 to $4, the
heaviest ever found iu the Horsefly,
because taken out from a deeper part
of the channel.���B.C. Mining Journal,

Cairo received its name from an accidental settling of a crow upon a certain string. Tlie naming of the place
dales from Ihe year Dd9, when (loher,
a Tunis general, invaded Egypt* and
prepared to found a new city there.
The curious circumstances under
which if received its title aro thus related by Curzon in his Visits to Monasteries on the Levant: The architect
having made arrangemeuts for laying
Ihe first stone of tho new wall, waited
for the fortunate moment, which was
to bo shown by the astrologers pulling
;������ chord extending to a considerable
distance from the spot. A certain
crow, however, who had not been taken
into the counsel of the wise men,
perched on the chord, which was
shaken by its weight, and tho architect
supposing that the appointed signal
had been given, commenced his work
accordingly. From this unlucky
omen, and the vexation felt by those
concerned, the epithet of Kahira (the
vexatious unlucky) was added to the
name of Iho city. Mars cl Kahira,
meaning! (he unlucky (city of Egypt).
Kahira, in the Italian pronunciation
has been softened into Cairo.

Vancouver & Nelson, B. 0,
The recent growth of the British
Columbia iron works is very noteworthy. Besides building steamboats
and steam engines, witli which its
hands tire full, it is making arrangements lo make all kinds of mining
machinery, hydraulic, motors, air compressors, stump mills, pumps and hoisting machinery. Seven steamers for
the Yukon or Stikine trade, as we
have already noticed, have been built
at these works, and it* has equipped
with engines and boilers four other
boats, 150 feet long. There is now
building in its premises a gold
dredger, for working on the Fraser
river gold sands, also a guano plant for
utilising the offal from Salmon canneries hclow Westminister. The manager is now John U. Norbom, M. E.,
formerly with the Joshua Heady Machine Oo. of San Francisco, and recently in charge of the mining machinery department of the British Columbia works. He is a man of experience
and known ability as a mechanical engineer.���Monetary Times, Toronto.
What  the   B. 0.   Review  of  Loudon
Foresees for the Province.
As for Westralia, says the B. C. Review, London, the mines will have to
accomplish much more in the way of
gold production before they ean again
become attractive as a form of investment. The political disquiet in the
country and the futility of|trving tore-
generate Mr. Kruger is a disagreeable
combination which must havo its reflex in tho restriction of business iu
Kaffirs. For the South American
magnates to expect* by the subtle de-
vico of branding themselves as per-
verters of the truth to restore confidence is fatuous in the extreme. In
fine, the mining market cannot bo
moulded to suit the interests of certain
groups exercising palpable sway over
it. The investor yearns for a change.
His affections for well known mining
countries has faded with the disappearance of the real speculative element. It is a change of diet ho now
requires, and in British Columbia and
the Northwest. Territories of Canada
he sees the possibilities of gratifying
the need.
From time immemorial it has invariably occurred that the limn of a
settled and permanent mining industry
loses its charm as a medium of investment. So it is with South Africa and
Westralia. Wherefore, British Columbia is now destined to supply the
prinoipal incentive to activity in the
mining market. Already about 120
companies have been formed to exploit
the natural resources of Ihis portion of
North America. But the proved richness of (he fields is a subject which is
widely occupying the, attention of capitalists, and there are not wanting indications of coining brisk business in
the B. C. market. Because dealings
on a large scale in these descriptions
are highly probable, investors must
not recklessly subscribe for or buy
shares in undertakings of which they
wholly ignorant. Their failure to use
discrimination can only lead to ultimate disappointment and loss. Wo
have heretofore uttered a warning to
this effect, and its repetition is rendered urgent in view of the broadening out and possibilities of the B. C.

St. Johns, Newfoundland, July 28.���
Receiver General Merino, commenting
on the expressions of some Canadian
papers that Newfoundland ivill not be
allowed representation at the international commission to meel shortly at
Quebec for n settlement of the questions at issue betwoen the United
States and Canada, points out thai
Newfoundland practically controls the
supply of bait for tho whole north Atlantic fisheries. Ho suggests thai if
Oanda sbould bo selfish enough to
ignore Newfoundland in the negotiations, that colony could refuse to assent to any agreement concluded at
Quebec The effect of Ihis would be
to prevent American fishermen from
procuring bait in Newfoundland
waters, thus destroying the fishery on
the hanks.
In Mr. Merino's opinion, the States
are not likely to consent to any convention on the fishery question unless
satisfied that Newfoundland concurs..
Canada's trade with Newfoundland
now equals that of the United States,
with tho colony, but slight changes or
tariff could throw the main volume of
trade again into American hands.
Further, Mr. Merino contends that the
fishery convention which Newfoundland has already negotiated with the
United States shows that the Americans regard Newfoundland concessions
as of great value, and better terms
would be obtainable from the Americans if Canada and Newfoundland
were united on the commission. Mr.
Merino, however, believes that the
Canadian members will not refuse to allow Newfoundland membership on thej

reserve. The bowling of Jessup and
Bull will be missed, but this time'WO
have more of it, and greater variety to
it. It will be in the hands of Woods,
Ainsworth (left hand), Lee, Wilson,
Bosanquet and Winter."
It will be noticed that F. G. J.
Ford, the great hitter who was announced to como. is not to be on tho
team. Neither are P. S. Jackson and
N. F. Draco. Their places are taken
by S. M. J.Woods and Frank Mitchell,
both of whom are well known in tho
United States���Woods as a member of
Lord Hawke's team and Mitchell as
captain of the Oxford and Cambridge
team whieh played here some years
ago. 0. E. M. Wilson will also be remembered as a member of Mitchell's
team. He played an innings of 116 in
the Oxford-Cambridge match on the
first two days of this month Lee took
fivo wickets for lii runs in the same
game, and Bosanquet scored 54 not*
The team will leave Liverpool for
Montreal on August 2? on the Gallia,
of the Beaver line, and will piny two
days in Montreal and three days in
Toronto before reaching the United
States. The lirst game in this eountry
is scheduled for September ii at Philadelphia, Mr. Warner is particularly
desirous of playing in Now York, and
he wants a match arranged here to
take plane between the Philadelphia
games. The league lure, however,
will hardly lake nn a game unless it
gets a Saturday, as mid-week cricket-
never draws sufficiently to come anywhere near the expenses of an international match.

A New York despatch says: The
passenger rate situation could be
settled in a few minutes by the presidents of the Great Northern and Canadian Pacific roads, should they get together. The ill effects of recent cuts
in rates have been largely overestimated.
The board of managers of the Joint
Traffic association adjournod for about
three weeks after discussing the matter, without arriving at any definite
plan of action. It* was thought best to
give the Great Northern and Canadian
Pacific further time iu which to settle
their differences.
Vancover news item states that it

iction   has  given   cause for thc
report to again become current that
the two liners have, been sold to the
United States government. No official
confirmation could be ascertained, but
for several reasons the rumor seems to
have some truth iu it. Offers have
been made by tho government. Another and very palpable reason for
their withdrawal from tho northern
routo is that they have not paid expenses during the months they havo
been in service.

A large party of English emigrants
enrouto to Vancouver passed through
the city on Saturday night, says the
Ottawa Journal of the 18th inst. They
came principally from Cornwall. The
men were all tine specimens of the best
class of immigrants, Many of them
have been fishermen and several had
held land in the old country. Speaking
to a Journal reporter they ail expressed
great faith in the new land they had
come to. On being asked if they intended going to tho gold holds of
Alaksa they invariably replied that
they would sooner starve first than endure the hardships they had heard one
met ou the way to Dawson City.
Many of the men said that Iheir attention had been first been attracted to
('anada as a home by the lectures they
had heard on Canadian topics. The
lectures spoken are arranged by the
Dominion government l<> encourage
immigration, and Ihe testimony of
these men is valuable showing that the
lectures which cost the country a oon-
Milerable sum each year are really
profitable, and productive of a good
class of imigration. The party numbered about 240. There were many
women aboard and several young girls
accompanied by their brothers. The
Iparty was sent out through the high
' commissioner's oflice, London.
