Washington, June 6.���Lieutenant Oar-
ansa and Senor Dabosie, who are conducting tbeir Spanish operations (rom
Montreal, have succeeded in obtaining a
brief respite from expulsion, through tbe
denial by Carranza of the accuracy of
-the featur.es cf- the letter attributed -to
Wm. The British authorities acted on
tha assumption that tbe translation of
tbe Corranza letter was correct, and tbat
thus tbere was no doubt that tbe Span.
ish officials were using Canada as a base
for hostile action agaiust tbe Uuited
States. But, since a question is raised
M to the translation, no steps are likely
to be taken towards forcible expulsion
until the translation is established as correct. The British authorities have been
ready from the outset to act on any well
established case, but tbe expulsion of a
foreigner would not be proper while the
evidence is open to question.
The Carranza denial raises n question
of veracity which can be readily -settled
by tbe production of tbe original letter.
This is not in the possession of the state
department, but it is understood to be in
the hands of the secret service branch of
the treasury. When the accuracy of the
translation is established the British
authorities will act promptly.
AFTER SPAIN SURRENDERS
Manilla to be Declared an Open Fort and
the Blockade Raised.
New York, June 6���A special to the
Herald from Washington sajB: '���Presi-
tdent McKinley will forward to Major
General Merritt, military governor of the
Phillippine islands, within the next few
days, a schedule of rates to be applied to
imports into the districts which he will
govern.   .
, . Instructions will be given him tliat bia
flrst act after the destruction or surrender
of Spain's military power in tbe far east
will be to deolare Manila an open port
and Bear Admiral Dewey will accordingly raise the blockade. By tbis means it
is confidently expected in official oiroles
that trade witb the phillippines will be
immediately resumed by foreign merchants and, by taxing goods which tbey
will bring into the country, a satisfactory
revenue will be obtained.
Spanish Offlrlals Clnlm That One Hundred Thousand Men Will bc Required
10 Attack Havana. ��� Applauding
Themselves With the Idea That
Spain is Showing Herself Able to
Fight thc United States.
Havana, May 30, via Vera Cruz,
Mexico, June 6.���Havana and the rest
of the island of Cuba so far as heard
from is officially pronounced quiet.
Preparations for defence are being
rushed [night and day, and work is
going on without ceasing, on the
fortifications all ever thejisland. The
Spanish officials here claim that if
fifty thousand men were needed to attack Havana when the war broke out,
at least 100,000 men will be required
now in view of the new and strengthened fortifications, aud also because
the so-called "cultivation zone" has
been extended to Rincon, Calabara
and De Jucal, which are inside of the
line of, defences now. This will, it is
said, - support the inhabitants with
foodAfor a.icmg tmie to eome. ���_. In spite
of this Outwardly cheerful aspect of
RAN THE BLOCKADE.
Havana and the prices of all articles
of food are doubling, though very
many families have left Havana and a
large number of houses are let. Now
you find fifteen or] twenty persons
living in a single room. Nearly all
those about the bay and along the sea
shore from Lapunta to San Lazaro and
the ; suburbs of Vedaho and Carmelo
are unoccupied, their former occupants being in fenr of the bombardment. At Esperanza a rich coal mine
has been discovered. It is to be
immediately worked for naval purposes. There is still considerable coal
in Havana. The gas company is using
very little coal at present as only
absolutely necessary lights are used.
AH the stores and business ponies are
without gas light and the state of
semi-darkness into which the streets
are thrown gives Havana a wierd
appearance at night..
Tbe number of unemployed increases
every day. Thousands of laborers of
all classes are without work. The
commercial houses have been compelled to reduce wages fifty per cent,
as a rule and many of them are not
paying wages at all, but are giving
clean clothing and food to their employees as the price of labor, which
has led to many abuses. The volunteers are doing duty day and night.
Thousands of additional volunteers
have been enrolled ih different parts
of the islands and the Spaniards say
they could get as many more if they
had arms to distribute to them. The
former insurgent leader Masso is
busily engaged in completing the
formation of the fourth battalion of

Sailed to the West Indies.
Washington, June 6.���After a lot of
conflicting rumors of naval engagements,
the landing of troops and Bach matters
at the navy department, there came at
the close of the day one important bit of
news, embodying a report from Admiral
Dewey, of important succesres achieved
by the insurgents at Manila.
The officials have been more anxious
than thev oared to betray as to Admiral
Dewey's condition. They were not seriously apprehensive of personal danger
to the fleet, but the impression was
gaining ground that tbe admiral was not
maintaining the same success in his operations in Manila bay that rewarded his
firBt effort Now the report received
goes to show tbat his plans are working
out admirably; that he has succeeded in
placing upon the . insurgents tbe burden

Spanish Gunboat Ardilla Arrives at
Havana with^Supplies.
Madrid, June 6.���A despatch from
Havana says the Spanish gunboat
Ardilla and a steamer with 800 head
of cattle have arrived tberfe. General
Blanco, according to the despatch,
has published an order prohibiting
foreign newspaper correspondents
from staying in Cuba, under penalty
ot being treated as spies.
AN AMERICAN ARMY
Of Invasion Has Successfully Landed
in Cuba,
New York, June 6.���The Ticker
service at 2.05 this afternoon sent out
the following: "Mole St. Nicholas,
June 0.���United States cruiser St.
Louis arriyed here this morning with
despatches for Washington. She
brought news that the troops were
successfully landed west of Santiago
de Cuba on Saturday. The troops
were one battalion of engineers, three
batteries of artillery, three regiments
of infantry and heavy siege guns,
which were easily disembarked by the
use of pontoons.
CANADIAN CLAIMS TO BE PAID.
Toronto, June 6.���The following is a
special cable to the Exening Telegram,
dated London, June 6: " In the House of
Commons.today Hon. Geo. N. Curzon,
parliamentary secretary of the foreign
office, in reply to a question of Sir George
Baden .'Powell, said he did not suppose
there wouldjbe any unnecessary delay on
the part of the United States in paying
the claims of the Canadian sealers."
Moret, the former Minister of Colonies
of Spain, with being a traitor, and of
having "sold Cuba to the United
States." This causes discontent to
prevail and if the Spanish fleet does
not arrive before food becomes really
scarce, rioting may be reported*
There are hardly any business transactions and the city looks very lonesome,
there being few people on the streets..
The families remain at home, excepting when the sound of a gun from one
of tbe forts causes the peopl? to rush
to the windows or into the streets to
see if the American fleet is approaching. The Spanish comment continually upon the tactics of^the American
fleet and naturally tbey are very
severe in their criticisms for they do
not understand the method of warfare
adopted. Many of them go so far as
to say the United States is not prepared for war; that no plans have
been decided upon and that the
authorities at Washington are not
serious in the steps taken. Indeed
the Spanish military and naval
authorities are beginning to nurse
themselves into the belief that the
naval and military powers of the
United States have been exaggerated
in the papers, and they are applauding
themselves with the idea that Spain is
showing herself able to fight the
United States. Advices from Caibar-
een and other towns show that a
scarcity of provisions exist. Were it
not that the city is blockaded, people
would hardly believe that war is in
progress, at least, so far as the'western
provinces of Cuba are concerned. The
inactivity of the insurgents in view of
the concentration of Spanish troops in
the; coast towns, cannot be accounted
for by the Spanish authorities. The
main point of interest at present is as
to when and where the American
troops will effect a.landing in Cuba,
though the Spanish pronounce themselves confident of being able to repel
any invasion. Eggs, cornmeal and
flour are   becoming more   scarce in
Spanish officials have discovered in
the bouse of an English nurse Sister
Mary, who* attended the sick and
wounded Survivors of the United
States battleship Maine in the hospital,
a considerable quantity of American
relief supple* Jtocause she did not
notify the authorities of the existence
of these provisions*: Sister Mary has
been ordered hy the military governor
to leave Havana for England at the
tiro opportunity. Only official news
nas been received here from the
pl-bvinces of Santiago and Puerto
Prin*u;t��>, but it is known that all
efforts ofthe cul:����nlgovernment to
prevail upon the insurgents *,*, mme to
the Spanish while he himself is lying in
enforced idleness, awaiting the arrival of
(troops and tliat he bas succeeded in preventing tbe corruption of tbe insurgent
leaders by tbe Spaniards, which appeared at one time to be threatening.
Tbere is some speculation bere by
anxious minds as to bow tbe insurgents
will treat tbe prisoners tbey have taken,
who are more numerous, it is said, than
all the captures made by the Cuban insurgents siooe tbeir war began.
It is reported by cable that soon after
be bad seoured tbe co-operation ot tbe
insurgent chief Agauildo. Admiral
Dewey would see to it that the insurgents
observed the rules of civilized warfare.
Tbis caution was made neceesary by the
terrible tales tbat bad been circulated of
terms   have   failed,   as  even body ����e   barbarous treatment of  prisoners
expected. The autonomists are iaily
giving. raore_ proof of. -their- -itter
inability to govern the island. Captain General Blanco is. compelled to do
most of that work for them.
Autonomy, therefore, is nothing more
than a mockery and the Captain
General has tbe reins ofthe government entirely in his own hands. The
rainy season has not yet commenced,
and tbe health of the Spanish soldiers,
it is said, has greatly improved.
TH2 TERROR SUNK.
Report Confirmed of Loss ot Spanish
Torpedo Destroyer Terror.
Kingston, Jamaica, Jnne 6.���News bas
been received heretodayconfirmingthe report from Port Antonio yesterday of tbe
sinking of the Spanish torpedo boat destroyer, Terror, (Furor), by the United
States battleship Oregon.
SQUADRON NOT READY.
London, June 6.���A special despatch
received in this city today from Vienna
says: "According to private advices from
Cadiz, the preparation for the active service of the Spanish cruiser Carlos V, the
battleship Ferayo and the auxilaries Patriot a and Rapido is proceeding slowly
and these vessels are not yet nearly ready
for sea."
captured by the insurgents. It is sincerely to be boned that Agauildo will
see to it tbat Ibis agreement is observed
in tbe case of the 1800 prisoners.he now
holds sate, for it is .believed in official
circles tbat the nations of the civilized
world will bold the United States naturally responsible for any great exoesses
tbat may be committed in the Phillippines as a result of their action there*
The navy department officials declare
that Jthe war is not responsible for the
safe keeping and maintenance of these
prisoners, which is most fortunate, considering the limited resources of the
admiral in the matter of provisions.
The Cadiz fleet, which was reported
to be doing strange things in West Indian waters yesterday is not giving the
naval officials any concern. Tbey have
learned throngb the state department
tbat tbe Spanish ships were at Cadiz last
Friday, so they could not well bave been
in tbe West Indies two days later.
Up to the close of office hours, it could
not be learned at the war or navy department that any news had reached
there to show that troops had landed in
force near Santiago, and the officials
high and low, made no concealment of
their incredulity.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Toronto .Globe makes the
following suggestion :���" Nothing
would more certainly promote the
mining interests of Canada than an
official weekly statement of the
production of gold and silver. Ail
the leading mining companies of
South Africa and Australia- publish
weekly statements: of their production. With an output of gold and
silver .outside of the Klondike
amounting now to about twenty
millions yearly, the government
could not better attract the world's
attention to our * mines than by
making arrangements for a weekly
return by telegraph from all producing mines and publishing them in
leading financial journals on this
continent and in Europe."

SURVIVAL OF THE  FITTEST.
There is one aspect of the war
: now raging between America and
Spain, which possibly has not been
considered by many, but which is
of peculiar interest to; the student
of history and ethnology.
The Hispano-American war is
but the latest of a series of struggles
between the Teutonic and the Latin
races, which has been carried on
almost without intermission for the
last two thousand years, and in
which the Latin races have never
obtained any permanent advantage.
When the Romans had consolidated their power in Italy, and
later in, what is now, France nda
Spain, they turned their eyes northward, and under Caesar made their
first serious attempt at the sub
jugation of Germany. Caesar, however, never' obtained more than a
nominal control over the Germanic
tribes, and 50 years afterwards
with the annihilation of the legions
of Varus, all hopes of Roman supremacy - in northern and central
Europe were drowned in blood.
The Goths, Visigoths, Ale-;
manni and other tribes who subsequently overran France, Italy, Spain
and Greece, were of Teutonic
origin, as where the Angles and
Saxons -who conquered England.
In the latter case the supremacy
was -permanent, but in the former
the Teutonic individuality became
gradually merged in the Latin,
though its influence largely remained as the Holy Roman Empire,
which was'a Teutonic Empire, whose
head was usually a Teuton and
" whose nobles were mostly Teutons.
The Thirty years war, though
directly the result of the Reformation; gradually lost its religious
character and ended in a contest
between the; German and Latin
element in Germany:. About this
time, too, there was a great Latin
revival, which received its death
blow when the Armada was annihilated by thesquadrons of Lord Howard.
The French Revolution was, aside
from its political aspect, perhaps
the greatest revival of the Latin
spirit the world has seen since this
struggle began, and its greatest
scion, Napoleon, may be considered
an embodiment of all that is srong-
est in the Latin genuis, but every
school boy knows how the Latins
'were eventually crushed���chiefly by
the agency of the nations of Teutonic origin, led by England.
In- 1870 the  superiority  of , the
Teutons was again strikingly exemplified, and in the present war, even
if the preponderance of'-��� wealth'- and
numbers were  not so  marked  on
the side of the Americans, the  superior   determination    and     staying
power   of   the   Anglo-Saxon    race
.might  be   reasonably  expected  to
- crown the   United   States  with the
laurels of victory.
We print today a letter from Dr.
Arthur, in which he makes a vigorous attack upon the electric light
by-law. Dr. Arthur asserts that
the plant originally only cost $12,-
500, and makes the point that a
plant bf this kind is only worth to
the city what it can be duplicated
for. There is considerable force in
his contention that if.the city wish
to invest in an electric plant, they
should obtain one capable of affording power sufficient to run street
cars and small manufacturing establishments. We also print the result of an interview with Mr. Bowes,
arid tomorrow we hope to publish a
communication from Alderman Hill-'
yer, in which Mr. Hillyer intends
to establish his position with some
facts and figures.

Everything  points   to   a  record
celebration on the   1st  and  2nd  of
July.    The committees appointed to
collect funds have been   most  energetic   and successful  in  their  canvassing, and have already collected
over $2,000.    It will be . noticed  in
another column that the city  council has ' also  donated  $200.    It  is
tlie intention of those ifl  charge  of
the arrangements to  have  a  large
number of posters printed, and  circulated in the neighbouring towns,
and in the trains and  steamers,   in
fact no  effort  is  being  spared  to
have the festival thoroughly  advertised, and  to  give  our  visitors  a
good time when  they  come.    We
do not think that any  one  has  yet
been selected for the  post  of marshal of the day, and if   the  suggestion be  not  premature,   we would
suggest'that Mr. Chas. Waterman,
who filled that position so  successfully last year, should be  asked  to
officiate on this'occasion.

THE ELECTRIC LIGHT QUESTION
Dr. Arthur Comments "on- the Proposed
By-law.
IWE HAVE
HUST RECEIVED
:'       a lot of
, which no well appointed
home should be without
duriiig the warm weather.
We have also constantly
on hand a full line of . .
Iiunber's Supplies,

m
I Vancouver^ Mson, B.O.
(dlG)
Kdilor Mixke:
While I am a firm believer in lhe municipal ownership of aU franchises, even
to that, of the liquor traffic, I think the
property owners of Nelson would make
a very grave mistake if on Thursday
next they should sanction the proposed
purchase of the electric light plant. I
am not opposed to the purchase of the
plant at'a. fair valuation, bnt the price
asked is nt least $16,000 more than would
duplicate it; and anything is worth io
the 'city, not what it may have cost, but
what the same oi an equally good article
may be had for. The par value ofthe
stock issued is said to be 328,220. , At
what discount was that slock issued?
The original plant was reported to
have been purchased for $12,500, of
which only $2500 was cash, the remaining $10,000 being in stock. But $15,01)0
worth of stock was issued. Is that
85000 included ih the cost ofthe plant?
Truly Mayor Houston kuew whereof he
spoke when he told a meeting of Nelson
citizens that the city would have to pny
wed for the electric light if they wished
to acqnire.it.' But is it not equally true
that a majority of the members of last
year's council sacrificed the public interest by making a s'.reet lighting
contract at an exorbitant figure, which
isjbeiug now nsed as a lever to force lhe
city to buy the plant at an outrageously
high price? ���'..*.
Wben the city has an electric plant, it
should be capable of supplying light,
power for electric cars and for email
manufacturing purposes. To light the
city well would require an arc light at
every street corner. Even should the
present eity limits never be .extended,'
that would require no less than 150 arc
lights. Thd present plant- will not supply
that amount of light, to say nothing of
power for other purposes. In fuel, we
know that in the latter part of the summer there is barely water enough to
drive the present plant, aud thesnme
will be true during a cold winter like
that of 1892-98. .���Furthermore ihe water
power will decrease as the timber is
removed from the mountains.' All the
water that can be diverted from other
streams will not make any considerable
inerease^of_pojweiv_at^tlie_itiQie-aof^year^
when it will be required. It has also
been proposed to use steam power as an
auxiliary. Steam as a motive power is
always costly, and is not necessary in a
country where so much water power is
available.
The company's franchise ia worth to
the city ouly what it would cost the city
to get a charter of. its own. The citv
could then supply its own light and
power and leave commercial lighting to
the present company.
If the city is willing to invest 84.0,000
in an electric plant let it install a plant
at the Kootenay Crossing, five miles from
Nelson, where a practically unlimited
water power is available; ono which is
sufficient to^meet not only present, but
all possible future requirements. Five
miles is a short distance to transmit' electricity. In Buffalo, Is. Y., where good
coal is much cheaper than it is likely
ever to be in Nelson, it pays to transmit
power from Niagara about 20 miles distant. We should look cot merely to
present but to future needs. But a short
time will elapse before the city wiil require a car service and the one electric
plant should supply that and the light;
and the present plant cannot do its
Those electors who vote for the electric
light by-law, vote to ^transfer at least
$16,000 from the property owners iu
general to the stock holders of the Electric Light company, for which the latter
give no return. I think few property
owners who are not also' electric light
stock holders will favor such a proposition. E. C. Ap.thue.

THv. Fletcher, the company's agent. It
was found that the site desired by tbe
���ity was further out tban tbe C.P.R. bad
thought, and Mr. Fletcher said tbe city
oouU} have it if tbey wanted it, as tbey
oou!4 hardly be expected to go further
out.
' The respective advantages of this site
and tbe proposed piece of ground near
MacLeod's rancbe were tben discussed'
Tbe city engineer considered both suitable for cem9tery purposes aud the mat
ter was postponed until next meetiug for
further discussion.
The oity engineer asked for an extension of time to report on tbe powder
magazine.
Tbe question of a temporary dumping
ground for the oity refuse was then discussed, but no decision waa reached.
.. A letter was received from Jobn Miles
asking for tbe position of city bill poster
and offering to pay n license���referred to
tbe committee of public works.
A letter was received from L. Pogue
applying for permission to put up a
frame building with tx corrugated iron
root on Victoria street, witbin tbe fire
limit Atter some discussion Aid. Hillyer
gave notice of an amendment to tbe fire-
limit by-law, which would allow tbe counoil to consider the request by reducing
tbe fire limit.
Chas. Waterman then addressed tbe
council witli regard to the comiog celebration of July 1st aud asked the council it tbey would provide music for the
two deyB' sports and give a trophy for the
hose reel contest. He said that though
they had collected about $2000 yet they
intended to advertise largely, and would
bave heavy expenses and so needed help.
Tbe band cost $150 last year.
Aid. Hillyer remarked that it seemed
to be the custom throughout the province for oity councils to support such
undertakings and moved that the sum of
8200 bo devoted to the purpose. This
was seconded by Aid. Gilker and carried.
A number of accounts were then read
and ordered paid.

in the cell tbe same night, but in the
morning it was found that he had picked
the Yale lock on the door and had made
bis escape. No trace of bis whereabouts
have, so far, been found.
THE ELECTRIC   LIGHT BY-LAW
J. H. Bowes was seen todny by n tepre
sentative of The Miner, with the view of
obtaining an expression of bis'opinion
on tbe matter of the electric li��ht bylaw.
Mr. Bowea' considered tbat it was not
fair to ask tbe people of Nelson to pay
out such a large sum of money without
any independent valuation having been
made, He considered tbe proposition
very unbusinesslike, and also that the
people of Nelson bad no independent
evidence before them of the value of the
investment in whioh tbey are asked to
place their money,'.'.'"''...
