An unofficial report received from the

SECURED THE COAL.
The United States Ship Alert Coals
up at a Mexican Port.
Yesterday afternoon about five
o clock, news was received in the city
that tbe body of a man had heen found
in the Kootenay river, about 8% miles
from Nelson by Geo. Manbart, bridge
foreman on the-GiPt-R.���Mr.-Man-
hart was walking along the track,
which at this point is quite close to
the river, when he noticed the body
in the water, stuck fast between two
rocks. Assistance was at once secured and the body was'taken from the
Water. Mr. Manhart immediately
went to Bonnington Falls and telegraphed the circumstances to C. P. R.
Agent Hamilton here. Mr. Hamilton
notified the coroner Dr. Arthur, who
ordered that the body be brought to
Nelson. It arrived here on a freight
train about 10 o'clock and was taken
to the undertaking parlors of D. McArthur & Co., where it was identified
as that of Charles K. Burritt, late pressman on the Miner, who was drowned
on April 11, while out fishing with W.
McMorris, the -..full details of which
were given in the Miner at the time.
Search for the body was continued for
a couple of weeks and was [then abandoned as hopeless, it being thought
that the body, should it rise to the
Surface, would be carried down by the
swif t water into the Columbia.
When foundj only the face was
exposed and the body had evidently
in rising to the surface floated down
until it got into an eddy which carried
it to the shore.   The body was identi-
San Francisco, May 27.���Oftoors of
the U. S. ship Alert say tbst vigorous
means had to be taken by the cruiser to
secure coal on her recent trip from South
America.
At Aoapuloo, a Mexican town of which
half tbe inhabitants are Spanish, the oap-
taiti applied to a Steamship Company
for coal, but be was told that he could
bave it at tbe rate of $20 per too in gold,
provided that be took it himself, as the
Company could not deliver it, beiogjon*
traband of war. The captain accordingly
took possession of a lighter and sent tbe
ship's marine guard to protect those unloading the coal. The wharf was crowded with natives who attempted to prevent
the eoal leaving ibe dock. The marines
cleared the wharf by a bayonet charge.
Tbey then stretched a rope across, lowered their rifles and informed tbe natives
that the first one to cross the rope would
be shot, Atter tbat 150 tons were loaded
on the ship, without further molestations.
Previous efforts bad been made through
the Consul to secure eoal but without
success.
WILL ENTER SANTIAGO HARBOR.
Washington, D.C., May 27.���The military situation as at' present determined
upon by those in authority is to make no
forward movement of troops, either upon
Porto Rico or Cuba until definite information is received as to the location of
the Spanish squadrons, and its possibilities as a factor in the aggressive movements of Spain. That being the determination there is no present purpose to
hurry forward tho troops now at the several points of concentration but the interval prior to aa aggressive forward
movement will be employed in seasoning
the men. Steps are being taken to secure early information as to whether Admiral Cervera's squadron is inside Santiago harbor, and whether the American-
squadron has snob an advantage by reas
son ot their position outside the. harbor
aa toTmika the* esoope^l"the"Spanish
praotically impossible. Unless the Navy
Department succeeds in securing direct
of&oial information respecting tbe Spanish and Amerioan fleets within tbe next
24 hours, through the aid of the West
Indian cables, it will resort to the use ot
deepatob boats.
It oan be again affirmed on the highest
authority, and notwithstanding all rumors to tbe contrary, that at the close of
the day, the department bad nothing
more than a belief, founded upou unofficial advioes that tbe Spanish squadron
was lying in Santiago harbor, and that
no news ss to Commodore Schley's whereabouts bad been reoeived. However tbe
great majority of tbe offioials of the navy
department entertain no doubt that Cervera is within Santiago harbor and they
have succeeded in impressing tbis belief
upon tbe president and the members of
the cabinet,

disouss witb Capt. O'Neill, chief of the
ordinance department, tbe feasibility of
using tbst novel craft in an attack upon
tbe Spanish squadron at Santiago if tbe
vessels are still there. Tbe offioials are
disposed to receive in a kindly spirit any
suggestion that might prove to be valuable in this line and tbey will talk witb
Mr. Holland on the details of his scheme
London, May 27.���The weekly newspapers agree that the policy of Spain is
to delay the war. The Spectator Bays:
"It is clear tbat Spain intends to delay
the war as long as possible, hoping that
either America will grow tired ot spending money or that Europe disturbed by
tbe interruption of commerce and the
rise of the price of wheat, will intervene
and insist upon peace."
WILL SOON BE RELEASED.
A British Newspaper Correspondent Imprisoned at Havana.
Key West, Fla.,May 27.���E. P. Knight,

Holland Offers to Destroy Cervera's Fleet
with his Submarine Boat.
New York, May 27.-J. J. Holland,
tbe builder of the Holland submarine
boat has gone to Washington with Col.
Crucy for the purpose of making the
offer of bis boat to the government. He
proposes to sail his submarine boat into
the channel of tbe narrow entrance into
Santiago harbor. He will destroy the
mines planted there, if necessary, and
proceed into the harbor, and then deal a
few blows to Cervera's fleet. He asks
the government to get the vessel and
crew to Cuba, aDd he will do the rest
He will get a volunteer orew for the
work.
Madrid, May 27.���In the Senate today
Marshall Primo De Rivera, former captain general of the Philippines defended
bis administration of the colony. He
said he oould not believe his ean when
he was told ot the disaster at Cavite,
adding, "That rag called the American
flag shall never float over the wall* of
Manila. The Tankees are deceiving
themselves."
Marshall De Rivera further declared,
"As to the situation at tbe Philippines,
it is absolutely impossible that Ihey
should beoome masters of tho island, for
the natives, to an immense majority, are
determined to defend the territory to the
last and maintain Spanish sovereignty."
PRIZE COURT DECISIONS.
New York, May 27.���A speoial to the
World trom Havana says that business ia
at a standstill. Very few mereanti?*
transactions are effected, for everybody
avoids suoh transactions ssit ispubltalyan
nounoed that all operations will, be considered void. Most business bonsee on
the main business streets of the eity are
dosing up. Spaniards having property
are willing that Spain should eoneede to
the demands of tbe United States, bnt
the lower classes who are daily instigated
by Blanco are fully prepared to meet all
exigencies, and id faot are anxious for the
American invasion to begin. Havana is
bein g*��for titled to meet attack ani the
whole cavalry foroe is concentrated there.
Supplies trom the provinces are growing
scarce. iu .Havana and prices have ad*
van<^f^l*90i%\*^T^''ora^.'' -Even
well to do people are deprived of some of
the necessities of lite. As for the poor
tbey are deprived of everything, and are
in tbe same box witb the Reoonoentmdos.
These last only pray for tbe return of
tbeir "Guardian Angel," as they call
Clara Barton. These people nre (lying ia
large numbers. The general impression
is that the existing ttate ot sflhirs eannot
last long without an uprising of the Jowe?
olasses, aa tbe government insist! tbat tbe
troop* be supplied first and tbey are ��x*
bsusting tbe food supply rapidly.
A Spanish ship thought to be an auxiliary cruiser was sighted by tbe TJ. S.
warships Wilmington and Banorott, IS
miles off Key West last night, and by tba
last amounts was being chased by tbs
Bancroft.
WW5RE IS CERVERA?
TRANSPORTS FOR PHILIPPINES.
Washington, May 27.���Tbe war department today ebartered the steamers China
and Colon of the Pacific Mail Steamship
Co., whieh witb the Centennial, Zealandia
and'the Ohio comprise tbe next expedition to tbe Philippines. They will leave
some time next week aud will carry 5,0���0
men.
BERNADE REWARDED.
Beoomes Spanish  Minister to Austro-
Hungary.
London, May 28.���The Vienna correspondent of the daily Telegraph says:
"Marquis de Hoyog, the Spanish minister to Anstro-Hungary will be succeeded
here by Senor Polo de Bernade, the late
Spanish Minister to the United States."
^Key^WestrMay27-In the United
States Circuit Court today, Judge Locke
tendered bis decision on the six Spanish
steamers seized during the first days of
the Cuban blockade. These included the
most valuable prizes taken since tbe war
began. The Catalina, and tbe Miguel
Jover are released but both tbe vessels
and cargoes of tbe Pedro and Guido are
condemned and forfeited. Tbe Buenaventura and tbe Panama are condemned
���nd forfeited. The oargo of the Buenaventura being neutral property is to be
restored to its owners. The question of
the Panama'r eargo was taken under advisement. Appeals were filed in the last
four oases.
CONFLICTING VIEWS.
As to Line of Action in Regard to Porto
Rico.
New York, May 27.���A special from
Washington says: "Genera) Schofield,
who ia giving the President the benefit of
his experience and advising bim upon
military operations, holds that Porto
Rico is the key of tbe West Indian situation for the present. He insists that
Porto Rico must be taken before Cuba is
taken or can be occupied at all.
If the war should end then, the President is said to be undecided in the face
of these conflicting views about tbe line
of action to pursue toward Forto Rioo.
Secretary Algeria 1 opposed to occupying
or attacking Porto Rioo at this juncture.'
Conflicting Reports as to the Whereabouts of tbe Spanish fleet.
Madrid, May 27.���Tbe Impartial today
reiterates the statement that Admiral
Cervera is at Santiago de Cuba, which
port, it says/possesses advantages over
CienfQgo?.
. New York, May 27.���Tbe Key West
correspondent of the Mail and Empress
bears "on tbe best authority, that
Cervera's fleet is no longerat Santiago do
Cuba. It left on Saturday." Tbe belief
here is, that be is preparing to descend
on tbe Atlantio coast. One of tbe United
States' fleets is watching tor suoh a
move. Tbe Spanish may reach Porto
Rioo, but tbey cannot reach tbe Cuban
ports because of tbe blockade."
Cbieago, May 27.���A private cable to
tbe Associated Press trom a reliable
person in Porto au Prince, Hsyti, dated
May 25, asserts tbat be had positive information that at that time Admiral Cervera's fleet was in the harbor of Santiago
de Cubs.'-.'""    _*   '     :'

one-striking instance, the value of

remembered that the vast proportion of. the mineral of Canada is
produced in Kootenay, and that
almost the entire increase in the
mineral output is due to the . development of Kootenay mines, it
must be admitted.thtt English capitalists are but giving another

THE MINER, SATURDAY, MAYM,: 189$.
LAND COMMISSIONER HAMILTON
Of tbe C.P.R. Visits Nelson and Expresses his Confidence in tbe City.
A representative of The Miuer had an
interview yesterday with Mr. L. A. Hamilton, tbe C. P. R. land commissioner,
who has been in the city for tbe past few
days.
Mr. Hamilton spoke of tho proposition
of the city to purohase land from the
C. P. R. for the purposes ot a cemetery.
He anticipated that the matter will be arranged in a few days, and announced
that theC. P. R. wonld accept any reasonable offer. In the meantime Mr. Hamilton suggested to Aoting Mayor Teetzel,
that he should go out and look over the
ground again and see if some other suit"
able plot further from Nelson could be
found aa be anticipated that in a few
years the ground now suggested will be
found to be unpleasantly close to tbe
eity.
Messrs. Hamilton and Fletcher took a
trip down the river yesterday morning
to inspect the C. P. R. lands between Slocan Junotion ahd Slocan City. Several
applications have been made by parties
wishing to take up farms and there :'���
every prospect of hay and grain being
successfully raised iu that section with a
ready market to be found in Nelson.
Vice-President Shanghnessay hss been
obliged to postpone bis trip to Nelson,
but may be expected next month.
Mr. Hamilton expressed himself as
greatly pleased with the progress and
push shown by Nelson and stated that
all their property on tbe lake frontage
had been taken up by wholesale merchants who seemed of one mind as to
Nelson being the great wholesale and
jobbing centre of of the Kootenay.
He intimated that be shared theae sentiments and tbat the polioy of the C.P.R.
fouldbe, not to sacrifice their Nelsou
property, but rather hold it, as they expect Nelson to become a great commercial as well as a railroad and mining
centre.
NEWS FROM MANILA.
of no little concern about the Senate for
tbe past few days, assumed definite
shape iu the Senate today, when Senators Lodge and Morgan offered an
amendment to the war Revenue bill,
bearing directly upon tbe subject.
Senator Lodge's amendment was in
the words of the Newlands resolution
and provides in direct terms for the annexation of the island. Senator Lodge
was seen immediately after he had sent
his amendment to the desk and announced it to Be his purpose to press
the amendment to the end. Henceforth,
said he, the two measures must trave
together. Both are equally important,
and it would be foolhardy for us to
forego our advantage iu Hawaii.
Tb<y express tbe opinion that the
amendment in the end will "be accepted,
but admit that in ail probability it will
result in delaying the passage of tbe
Revenue bill.

Hone of European Intervention.
London, Way 28.���The Madrid correspondentof the Times, commenting on
tbe feeling of sadness, prevailing in
Spain says " It is less on account of
ministerial dissensions, whioh are not
really serious tban on ocoount of a taller
apprehension of the difficulties of the
situation, namely tbat itis hopeless to
expect any assistance from Europe, even
France and Russia being, sinoe Mr.
.Chamberlain's speeob, averse to doing
anything to precipitate oomplioationi.
Spain now sees tbat she must trust to
herself alone in an unequal struggle tbat
can have only one end.
The "Speaker" ssys :-Probobly the
real aim of Admiral Cervera's operations
is less naval tban political and is meant
less tor use in America than in Europe.
It is all desirable for tbe. Spanish ministry to gain time. The revolutionists
oannot move until a disaster comes.
Meanwhile Spain can point to the
agonies of the reconcentrados and bid
Europe behold the results of American
humanitarianism. There is also a possibility of a European war that would give
Spain unexpected allies. Every moment
of delay therefore is a gain for the safety
of Spain.    *��� * ���  "��� .. -.   ' *���'; - ���,' ���

In reply to on inquiry as to his views on
