Question,   liiti-ttiion-* ui' (he Amiim-i-
tlea. ��� I own    Will    mil   :;"   lo   .Spain
with Wutson,
Washington, July 9.���The great battle
expected today did not take place,
though the armistice expired at noun
wil h both armies lined up for bat tie. The
reason was that the Spanish commander who had been telegraphing
his home government was seeking to
make terins with General Shafter,
He was willing to give up Bantiago
without resistance if allowed to retreat with all of his men and anas
across the island. This idea was not
entertained for a moment by tlie
United States government. On the
contrary every effort was put* forth to
seal up all avenues of escape from Santiago and to compel the Until surrender
of the Spanish tinny.
To have allowed tbem to make iheir
way unmolested into the interior
would have amounted simply to a reinforcement* of the garrison of Havana,
It is believed a surrender would certainly produce au enormous moral
effect both in Havana aud iu Spain itself, and thus tend to the early conclusion of the war. General Shafter has
lost* nothing by the armistice, his men
am  rested; the  commissary bus heen
improved, the roads have been cleared
and his artillery [is now almost completely placed in a most effective manner. On the other hand the Spanish
forces have largely diminished their
slender stock of provisions and have
steadily lost* in ooufldence. Strategists
aro indisposed to entertain the proposition said to bo under consideration
at Madrid, looking to an armistice of
ten days in order to consider terins for
peace. They believe that the United
States has everything to lose and
nothing to gain by accepting a proposition.
During that time Camara's Bquadron might lind lodgment in some
storngly fortified coast town like Fer-
roi and thus elude Watson's pursuit.
Naval officials feel that another change
may have to bc made in the eastern
squadron as tho battleship Iowa suffered   some   hard   knocks   during the
recent   naval   battlo   with   Cervera's
Bquadron,   and it may be necessary to
substitute one of   the other bnttl
pending repairs.

Washington, July 0.���Scerotary Alger says that Santiago has not surrendered or has a battle taken place
there us yet, Mid the indications are
that the uegotiatioHS for a surrender
are still progressing. As a result of
advices from General Shafter ho expressed the opinion that no battlo
would take place today.
Secretary Alger and General Corbin
Loth refused to moke any further
statements as to the nature of the communication they had received from
General Shafter, but itis understood
here that the town offered to capitulate
upon conditions, and that these conditions so far have not* been accepted.
Everything is reported to be in most
satisfactory shape, tind lighting may
bo resumed perhaps Ihis afternoon or
evening.
PROSPEROUS    CANADA.

Under Liberal Government.
Ottawa, July I).*���Tlie next Official
Gazette will contain lhe financial
statement for the year. It will show
for the first time in several years that
Canada will have a surplus of about
$2,000,000. The revenue is two million over last year. The exact figures
of the expenditure have not yet been
made up, but the surplus will be as
above slated. The deficit since 1SI11I
litis been over six million. Canada
has now reached an era of prosperity
as well as surpluses.
The government have now under consideration the organization of the
Yukon territory under a new council
to be appointed with the seat of government at Fort Selkirk. It is under
slood that Major Walsh does not want
to slay us administrator, and that
Willia'ii Ogilvie will lie appointed to
take his place. All the other councillors will likely be taken from the chief
officials who are now out there.

New York, July !).���Consul General
Bruwert, representing Ihe French
government in this city, told this
afternoon the story of the wreck of
La Bourgoyne as hit got it from the
crew of tho ship on board La Tour-
aine in jtheir depositions hist night"
These were sworn statements of tho
crew taken by the consul in his capacity as member of the Frencli Admiralty court. Mr. Bruwert tells the story
as follows:
When lhe collision occurred Captain
Delonccl was ou the bridge. The
shock of the collision was groat, it
threw ihe big ship to port, and the
bowsprit of tho Cromartyshire smashed
ihe bridge of the liner, sinking the
captain iu the side tint wounding bim
painfully. Observing lhe shin had
l"i n badly damaged ; y tm* collision
Mt" captain orderi ,1 le r stci ;���< d for

"Wo'ro about 00 miles !;'"'i Sable

stoor northoast thon," .it : '���.*..:���. time
ho JJdid not know tho extent of ihe. injury t.i the big ship, !,!!���; on!. Led the
12 lifo boats to be manned by the
crew, companies being assigned In
thom. Th'.- crews responded to tho
order quickly and remained at thoir
posts. After tbis order, Captain
Delonccl signalled from the bridge
to the officers below Hie deck to ascertain the extent of the injuries below, lie received 1:0 response to the
signal. The Cromartyshire had disappeared almost instantly ill the mist,
as tbe liner sped past her. Captain
Delonccl not realizing that bis own
ship was so badly hurt,sent up rockets
to signal the captain of the Cromartyshire that if he was in distress the ship
would help him. There was no response to these signals. About eight
minutes after the captain had signalled down below and had received
no answer, the fourth engineer rushed
up to the captain and told him that
the side ef the ship was cut open,
and tliat the water was pouring into
the machinery compartments. The
captain realizing that the ship must
be going down ordered the boats to
be lowered. The ship was stopped
about this time and the passengers
of the ship, from all classes, camo
rushing upon deck and ran about in a
panic. They got* in tbe way of the
sailors and pushed them away from
the boats as tbey wero loosening
them.
Before the bouts could be got from
the davits and ready to launch, the
ship suddenly listed to starboard,
throwing some of the passengers
overboard. The passengers of the
lirst class cabin had rushed out of their
rooms to the port side of thet ship,
and against the protests of the sailors,
clambered into (lie six boats there.
The list lo sliirboai'd made the big
boat swing' in board tind turned the
davits     back   over   lh"   sides   ol.'   the
cabins. The sailors implored the passengers'to leave lhe hotils, and in some
cases tried to force theni out, so that
they might be lifted up and slipped
over Ihe side of the ship. The passengers could not be induced to leave
the boats, a crowd of steerage passengers having appeared ready 10 take
their places, The sailors heaved at
the boats but could not* bndgoj them,
tilled us Ihey were with crazy passengers. They gave it up at, last and
were engaged in cutting the boats
free, wben tlie vessel pitched stern
downward and sank, carrying the
port boats with-it.
Ou the starboard side three boats
were smashed by the Cromartyshire
in tin! collision.. Boat* No. Twas
tilled with women and other passengers
and had been got into tlu- water when
Jhe big funnel fell, which smashed
the boat and killed most of those in
I it.    Twenty Austrian  sailors from thc
steerage, not belonging to the ship,
but going as passengers, seized one
boat, No. 11. There was room for
50 in the boat, but the passengers were
fought oil' by the men in it. They
answered the order of a ship's officer,
who drew his revolver and ordered
them out, Unit Ihey were passengers
and that they had as much right in
the boat as the others. They pulled
their knives and stabbed at the sailors. The crew left tbe boat alone,
not even cuttting it loose, but the men
knew how to manage it and launched
itsafdly. Tho passengers inthe water
tried to get aboard but were pitched
oil'. Boat No. I) wns tilled wilh
passengers and got off successfully. Il
had 53 aboard, including its crew.
The ouly boat on the port side where
the first claims passengers hud rushed
after trying the starboard boats was
No. '.',. The sailors around it succeeded in getting it launched and
they hopped in as the shirs went down
and picked up enough passengers to
till it. The engineers below stayed
there until the lirst engineer told them
to fly for their lives. He himself was
lost. The water rushing in had put
Out  the tires.
On the top of the midship house
were four rafts. They unshipped one
and threw it overboard, but one of the
copper cylinders in it was smashed.
A second was got overboard successfully before the ship sank, Wheu the
heat with the Austrians got tothe
ship Cromartyshire the captain of the
latter asked for volunteers to take it
back. The Austrians refused, saying1
they were passengers and should not be
called upou for work. A volunteer
crew from the Cromartyshire then set
out for the boats manned by the crew
of tin' Bourgoyne, and the English
ship circled round and round where
tbe big ship  had sunk, picking up the
found.
Tiie French consul said the sailors
swore that the compartment doors
were closod and that the statement
that the engineers climbed singlo file
up the ladders for some distance will
be tendered to show that they could
not get into tlie next compartment.
Tho consul says that ^he made the
investigation carefully and that tho
stories of lie men agree and were
told frankly. The meu were sworn
in the Frencli way, the crucifix being
used. Tho sailors said that the life
preservers were furnished to the passengers, but that they wero in a complete panic and threw them away in
many instances.
Consul Bruwert inquired particularly as to the fighting among the crew
or the ; passengers. All the stories of
the wreck agreed that neither the men
from La Bourgoyno's crow nor the passengers did any fighting, excepting tho
Austrians and the Italians. Most of
this was done by the Austrians in the
single boat.
DRAPER IN WASHINGTON.
Germany  is   tho  Only   Power Likely
to   Make   Trouble.
Washington, July !).���General Draper
of Massachusetts, the American anibas
sudor to Italy, has arrived hero on a
leave of absence. He had a talk with
president McKinley, having first been
to the state department where he saw
Judge Day.
General Draper gave the administration to understand that all Europe is
anxious to see peace and is gradually
put ting pressure on Spain to Hint effect,
lie said that Italy will not interfere
in any thing this government may do
in the Philippine Islands. It is said
that he has informed the state department lhal he had gathered that Germany alone is likely to make demonstrations as to the Philippines. England as he understands the drift of
diplomatic circles, will be glad to see
the United States permanently take
possession of the islands.
THE LA BOURGOYNE COLLISION.
Washington, July 9. ���In commenting upon the liability of the French
liner La Burgoyne for the loss of
life in the collision of July 4,a compe-
t tit legal authority here today said
from thi! descriptions thus far published it appears tliat the La Bourgoyne
violated Rule in of the international
rules, which requires a vessel in a fog
to go at a low rate of speed and sounding her fog horn whether other vessels tire heard   in the vicinity or uot.

THE ELECTIONS.
The contest both in Xelson and elsewhere has been very close and sever",
and though most of the returns are
iu, tho issue is yet in doubt. Owing
to the distance of some of the outlying
polling stations it is not yet known
whether Mr. Hume or M. Earwoll
will represent the Kelson riding. The
figures from Rykerts and Goat River
have yet to come in, but as Mr. Hume
leads av present with a majority of
12, it seems haritiy probabh thai Mr.
Farwell will be able to catch up, So
little, however, is known of tho number of voles likely to be polled in those
places, that it- would be unwise t'i
prophesy. The government supporters
claim they will have a majority of
three in Rykerts, but* this remains to
be seen.
The general results, which are
equally close and indecisive, are given
in another column, and the probability
seems to be that neither side will have
a majority of any size. Though the
results are not so decisive us bad been
hoped, yet the}- constitute a great victory for those who have so long been
fighting for good government in British Columbia. The opposiiton had
powerful forces arrayed against them,
an organized political machine, and
the well nigh all* powerful power of
the purse. On Vancouver Island, the
stronghold cf the government, three
seats have been wrested by the oppos' -
tion, thanks to the magic of the secre
ballot. Chinese Martin has fallen,
whilo it is asserted, though the filial
figures are not to hand, that the premier is defeated in Cliilliwaek.
Kootenay has done nobly. At Revelstoke, at Rossland, and at Kaslo the
opposition candidates have been victorious, while everything points to
Nelson following suit with a small
majority for Mr. Hume.
While it cannot be said that tho
Americans have received a check iu
their combat with Spain, yet thei r
experience in the field before Santiago
have demonstarted that thi! Spanish
soldiers at any rate,are not the despicable antagonists it has been the fashion to
consider them. In the battle of Santiago, tho utmost courage was displayed on both sides and yet after
great bloodshed on both sides the
Americans only obtained a partial
advantage. In fact Shafter found it
impossible to succeed in his object with
the forces ut his command, and was
constrained to retreat on the high
ground to rest his troops and await
reinforcements. General Miles, the
commander-in-chief of the American
army, is on record as having said
that the battle was drawn. If Spain
is well advised,she will treat for peace
while it is yet time, for sooner or
later she is sure to be overwhelmed,
and tho blood of her brave soldiers
will have been spilt in vain.
One of the salient, features of the
election in Nelson yesterday was tbe
entire absence of disorderly conduct
and rowdinoss. As on Dominion day,
so on election day, the citizens of
Nelson have shown that they remember what is due to themselves, and do
not indulge in the orgies that frequently disgrace other towns on such
occasions. No small meed of praise
is also due to the mingled tact and
firmness of Chief of Police McKinnon,
whose nianagement^on such occasions
ja unexceptionable.
MEXICO'S GREAT CANAL.
I.- nn Assiu'od Pact���Work Will be
BogUU   al   Once.
The eniisession for this canal has
been granted to Messrs. B. Bolanus
nml I'. Lervy, and carries with it a
subvention of $5000 por kilometer, to
be taken out ni tho public lands at tho
rate a dollnr por acre. The entire
fiiite hns boon surveyed from Tehuan-
tepee lo lhe Suchiate on the Guatemalan bordor.
The course of the canal is generally
parallel with the Paciiic coast at a
distance of from one to twenty kilometers, and from twenty to thirty
kilometers distant from the coast
range ol' the Sierra Madre. The
concessionaires have mineral and lumber rights along (heir bonks, and also
free use1 of all game, fish, salt, ete.
The ennui will be Iwo melers deep and

in ils course posses near or by the following ports and towns: Up Lake
Tileiua, Laguna Inferior, Sagana del
Pttredon, passing about four kilometers from Puerto de Arista, and South
of Tonala and about twenty kilometers from Tapiichula. The canal must
be finished in ten years.
TWO OKK AT DAYS.
Nelson is a town that knows just,
how to celebrate and has the people
and financial backing to do it. This
is tho opinion of every New Denverite
that spent lhe holidays there. About
200 went from the lake towns. The
smelter town was [crowded with visitors and the snorting events went- off
wilh very little hitch. There was
some trouble, of course, but this is unavoidable and is to be expected. The
band boys aud lacrosse team are loud
in Iheir praise of the treatment accorded them mi all sides. Nelson fully
appreciated the worth of the band, and
recognized in it the best musical organization of the kind in Kootenay.
The lacrosse boys put up as good a
game as they could, hut were no match
for the professional men in Ihe Nelson
team. However, thev want to play a
return game and Nelson will probably
meet them at ihe Sandon celebration
on Labor day. Nelson's two days'
celebration was the Lest ever held iu
Kootenay.���New Denver Ledge.

WHAT MEN SAY OF US.
A nuirrrieil man hates the word
"honeymoon," because his wife is
always throwing up to him his sentimental remarks during that pOliod,
Next to knowing another woman's
age, women always waul to know
whether her sido comlis arc real tortoise shell.
Among queer kinds of women is
the woman who always wants to talk
nbout what she was doing this time
last year,
Woman's worst fault is (he ease
with which man can lie to her.
Il is a wise man who never lets his
wife know he ean put up shelves as
well 08 a carpenter.
After a woman marries a man she
steps looking wistfully nt him, and
says what she means.
Every woman is looking for an opportunity to show that there is a good
deal of the startled fawn iu her.

"Never in my lile have I seen sucli
a scouo of fraternization of Ainercans
iinii Britons. The flags (if both wero
intei'twiiied around the hall, and a
number of prominent Englishmen residing in Germany were present. The
toast to lhe president of the United
Stales was received with tremendous
enthusiasm by every one present. "
The polling for the provincial election yesterday in Xelson was conducted
very quietly and outside of the presence on the streets of the workers for
the respective candidates, nothing
unusual could be observed. The business houses were open and transacting
business as usual, but (lie hotel bars
were closed and this fact perhaps
accounts for the ahsence of any drunkenness or disturbance i n ihe streets.
Hero and there supporters of lhe two
candidates were seen iu earnest conversation with doubtful voters and escorting them to (he poll, but the majority
of tho electors hud decided persumahly
as to how they wine going to vole and
vote;1 accordingly. Mr, Farwell had
open 1 committee rooms in the Grand
Central hotel, opposite (he Court
House.
The polling was held in lhe Court
House with Mr. \V. J. Goepel as re��
turning officer, and tlie arrangements
wero very complete for the convenience
of the voters. Nothins occurred i?i
the polling booth during the dsy to
obstruct iln' poll or mar tho proceedings and very fow of those who presented iln mselvcs us electors �� 'tr

The poll close! promptly tii -1 :\ it'..,
and iho work of counting the ballots
was proceeded with. Outside an expectant and excited crowd aw,tiled Ihe
returns and during the interval a number of bets were made on the rosult.
It took about half an hour lo get (lie
result, of the Kelson poll which wns
^70 for Hume and Sir for Farwell.
When the returns were announced the
crowd at the Hume hotel were jubilant and tho Farwell men across the
street wore correspondingly doleful.
The Ymir poll came iu shortly aftor
wards whieh announced a majority
for Farwell of 11.
During tho evening returns camo

Indiscretion of Somo Amerioan Newspaper.-', Causes Embarrassment.
Washington, July I).���As was anticipated by the authorities hero, the eon-
duct of some newspapers in crediting
to Lieutenant Colwell, tho United
States attache at London,certain utterances as to the probability of peace
being declared, has resulted in disagreeable action, Tho Spanish ambassador at London has lodged with tho
British foreign ollice an official pretest against the continuance in London
of Lieutenant Colwell and the conduct
by him of a secret news system. It
is not doubled that the matter can ho
explained satisfactorily by the stato
department, bul indignation has boon
expressed at the publication by somo
American newspapers of such stories
that* are calculated lo dangerously
interfere with (lie special services
abroad.

Tho imprisonment, however, is suspended, hi addition each of the experts

PEACE RUMORS.,
The Feeling in Madrid is in Favor
of Peace.
Paris, July 9.���The Temps this afternoon publishes a despatch from Madrid
wliich says Iho rumors of peace aro
universal. They aro pressing, and tho
feeling in high circles is inclined to
end tho struggle on the morrow of tho
noxt reverses,or after a victory on land,
which will soon satisfy the national
honor.
Tho government is conferring with
the British cable companies for the
reopening of communication with
Cuba and Manila.

wliich the Englishman landed repeatedly on McCloskey's wind. The

gram to tno Evening Tologram says
(litit lhe volunteer artillery team under
Lord Stadbrokc's command is to visit

WHITE ON FOURTH OI'1 JULY.
His Speech Made a Great Impression���
Anglo-American Friendship,
Berlin, July 9.���The speech delivered by United States Ambassador
White itt the Fourth of July celebration by Americans at Leipsio on Mon-
day last, has divided lhe attention of
the German press all the week long.
equally with the latest developments
of   tho   war.    Tho  speech   is uuiver-
THJJi ENGLISH PRESS.
Advise     Spain   to    Suo   for   Peace���
Enough Done for Honor.
"If Senor Sagasta clocks to risk
further disasters for fear of the frothy
jingoes in Madrid," says the London
Daily Graphic, "ho will incur terrible
responsibility. Tho Spanish flag hns
boen borno with undying glory in
the* face of tremendous odd* and the
punctiliousness of honor has been generally .satisfied.''
Tho Daily News tenders similar advice.    It says:
'' Tho Spaniards can fight and dio.
So can the Americans. Ambassador
Hay in his glowing and eloquent
speech of yesterday, gloried in this
thought, but to their equal courage
Americans add, in this unequal combat with Spain, not only vastly superior material resources but a devising
mind and a skilled organization without wiheh bravoiy is nothing but a
means of providing stuff for the shambles. "
Tho Daily Telegraph comments
upon tlio way in which tho American
commanders at Santiago and probably
at Manila also have fulfilled their predictions of tho Fourth of July. It*
says:
"Tho Americans rushed upon San
Juan in a manner displaying tho
immense virility of Amerioan manhood. The unflinching personal bravery
of officers and men was, in tho educated judgment of our special correspondents, tho foaturo of tho desperate
light of Friday and Saturday.
"The   prospects   of European intervention   on  behalf of Spain have vanished   and   the   significant   fralcrniza
tion of Englishmen and Americans on
independence day in the United States
and   London,   may   well give pause to
thoso  continental   states who are credited   with   a   design   to   dictate    to
America   the   terms of peace.    Spain,
if  lur statesmen have any fragments
j of   political    wisdom   left, will  make
I terms   with   her    adversary   quickly.
j Delay is dangerous on many grounds. "
The Standard suggests that lhe   war
I cabinet  at Washington, on the receipt
I of   General   Shatter's despatch saying
it   was   impossible  to   tako Santiago
until ho had been  reinforced,   ordered
hiin to demand its surrender.
Tho Daily Chorniclo comments on
tin1 "blood brotherhood of England
and America on the glorious Fourth
of July, which is an important outcome
of grim war. "
Tlie Post advises Spain to treat
directly with her foe, but expresses a
fear that even this courso will hardly
save her from Iho grasping propensities of some of her European neighbors.
