The cold waters of Kootenay lake
Claimed two more victims on Sunday
iifternoon, tbe result of a boating ac-
bident.   Early in the afternoon, two
roung men named Frederick James
lussell and John Hutcheson left the
aat bouse of Elliott & Hale in a small
[anoe and paddled along a short dis-
ince.    When opposite   the    Nelion

irowing the occupants into the water.

x shore, about 500 or 600 yards dis-
rat.   Both were good swimmers, and
lere seemed every likelihood of tbeir
sacbing shore;  but when about 200
fards from land they sank to rise no
lore.   The accident was witnessed by
, number of people on shore, and a
mt was secured: as soon as possible
goto their assistance, but before
ie rescue party reached them they
disappeared from sight.
They sank almost simultaneously,
it is supposed that they  were
iken with cramps.  Their coats and
lats were found in the water along-
ide the overturned canoe.
As soon after the accident as possi-
le grappling irons were procured and
rery effort made  to   recover   the
lies.   About 8 o'clock in the even-
jgthe body of Russell was found,  al-
lost at the place where he sank.   The
ly of Hutcheson has not yet been
covered.   Russell's watch had stop-
I at 3.30.   The remains [were inter-
in the Nelson cemetery Monday
Ifternoon.
Fred Russell was born in Lancaster,
ilengarry county, Ontario, where a
lumber of his relatives reside and was
! years of age on April 11th last.   He
I Iras an  orphan,   his mother  having
led in Calgary about 3 years ago and
1 father in Seattle.   He worked in
ie drug store of J. [G, Templeton at
Calgary for 7 a couple of years previous
to his coming to British Columbia.
He afterwards was in the employ of
the West Kootenay Butcher company
at Kaslo for several months and came
to Nelson at the beginning of theyear.
His uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. J
Janiieson, with whom he resided and
from whose residence on Water street
the funeral took place, and one sister,
Miss Russell are his only relatives^ in
British Columbia. He was a steady
boy and bore a "good reputation with
hif�� employers.
John Hutcheson, was a native of
Oxford, Eng, where his parents still
reside and was about 90 years of age.
He came to Canada several years ago
and engaged in farming in Manitoba.
He came to Nelson a couple of years
ago and spent several months in tbe
Kootenay Lake general hospital suffering from a gunshot wound in bis hand
received in the Slocan. Since that
time he has worked at different jobs in
the city. One of his former employers described him as "a fine, steady,
honest young man." He bad a brother
in Australia, whom he intended to
visit shortly. -', *��� "W   ', A..

TO fortify; ST. JOHNS.
The Imperial Government to Fortify one
of its; "Gateways."
St. Johns, May 16.���The Newfoundland government has been advised that,
owing to com plications between Great
Britain and France, which are likely to
result in war and to the constant friction
always developing along tbe French
shore of Newfoundland, the Imperial
authorities intend to fortify St. Johns.

SUPPRESSING NEWS.
New York, May 16���The central cable
office Western Union telegraph issued
the following notice today: " Tbe Porto
Rico government prohibits all messages
to, or from the United States."
Washington, D.C., May 16.���An order
posted this morning and signed by Sec-
retary Long, relating to the publication
ot news emanating from tbe war department had the effect today of considerably curtailing the supply of information that, heretofore had been rather
freely given out.
The secretary's order was directed to
Captain Crowinshieid, chief of the navigation bureau,.and he, in turn, gave it
effect by makiog an  order in bis own
name that no person connected with his
bnreau .iu any capacity should have any
conversation whatever upon subjects in
any way pertaining to the navy with
representatives of the press." At an offset it was ordered that bulletins of such
facts as have actually occurred and are
proper for publication and- are not connected with existing or projected movements shall be   prepared and posted on
tbe bulletin  boards.   The sum total of
information published by the   bulletin
board today under this rule was a notice
of intention to start the .Phillipine relief
expedition ahd*dt permission"g*iven to
some, foreign neutral vessels to pass the
blockade at Havaua.   In explanation of
tbe issue of this order the naval authorities say that some of the leading American newspapers have been ao far lacking
in patriotism as to print plana of campaign and projected movements of naval
ships with the result. that tbe war board
has been compelled to revise its plans as
tbe Spanish bad promptly taken notice
ot publications   and were prepared to
profit by them.  Camplaint was made to
Secretary Long that   the  newspapers
were working an injury to tbe government in suoh cases.   It is not the purpose of Secretary-Long to prevent tbe
press having any information that ia not
calculated to cause a miscarriage of the
plans of the department, but it remains
to be seen whether th enaval officers to
whom the. order has been directed will
not by tbeir ironclad interpretation of it
bring about a modification in the interest
of liberality. .A '
THE BLOCKADE OPENED. . _ _
Tbe opening of the blockade at Havana
to certain vessels ib a rather curious proceeding tbat may lead to a very considerable widening of the blockade itself to
that in the end of it the neutral vessels
not loaded with contraband, or supplies,
the carrying of which into Havana,
would interfere with the naval and military operations of the government, may
pass the blockade under regulations laid
down by the United States. The statement that the navy department still
hopes to make an exchange of prisoners
at an early day shows that the mission of
the Uncas was by no means a complete
failure as has been stated.
TROOPS FOR MANILLA.
The troops going to Manila are to be
prepared for a six months' stay, according to the amount of rations furnished,
and preparations for their departure art
being pressed'with the greatest energy.
The Charleston should have Bailed today
from San Francisco.
BLANCO SHORT OF AMMUNITION.
Intimations bave been received here
that Captain General Blanco is very short
of ammunition, in which case the powerful batteries at the entrance of Havana
harbor, of course would be deprived of a
large part of their defensive strength.
This statement of affairs may lead to
some desperate attempts at blockade
running on the part of the Spaniards in
the hope-of getting more ammunition
into Havana.   It is believed the supplies
so frequently referred to as being on tbe
Spanish flying squadron were of this
character, rather than food supplies,
whieh. makes it all the more important
that Sampson nnd Schley should succeed
in keeping Admiral Cervera from reaching Havana or Cienfuegos, or any pert in
Cuba connected with Havana by raif.
Commodore Schley probably is well down
on the Florida coast and should be able
to guard the Florida straits by tomorrow
or next day. His .appearance on tbat
side of Cuba would enable Sampson to
bring bis ironclads with perfect safety to
Cienfuegos on the south side and with
this disposition of the naval force and
the free use of a considerable number of
scouting vessels it is bard to see how the
Spanish fleet oan esoape from the gulf of
Mexico or the Carribean sea.
TROOPS FOR JTHC PHILLIPINES
Major General Merritt, who is now at
Governor's island in command of the department of the east, and who has been
selected for the military governorship of
the Phillipines, is expected in Washington to receive bis instructions before
leaving for bis post ot duty. Some of the
troops which are going on this expedition are already on their way to Sao
Francisco, and every effort is being made
to bave the others who have been ordered
tbere. to proceed as rapidly as possible.
It is noi believed, however, by the officials here tbat the expedition ean start inside of a week. Mqny of the troops will
have to -be re-equipped and furnished
with ammunition at San Francisco.

Loodoo, May 16.���-The speech of Hon.
Joseph Chamberlain, the Secretary for
the Colonies at Birmingham on Friday
last is still the sensation of the day and
was introduced in tbe House of Commons, this evening. During a question
as to the date for discussion of the foreign
.office vote, the Liberal, leader ia the
House, Sir Wm. Vernon Harcourt, said
the oountry desired to discuss " The
new Birmingham foreign policy." The
remark caused tremendoU3 cheering, in*
termixed with ministerial " Ob's." Mr.
Michael Davitt read an extract from Mr.
Chamberlain's speech, io which the latter deprecated tbe value of Russian
promises, and -asked the colonial secretary if he thought such language and
sentiments were consistent with the
friendly relations between the two countries, but the speaker refused to allow
the question to be put.
SPANISH PRESS COMMENTS.
t
New York, May 16���A cable despatch
to the World from London, says: "The
Daily Chronicle's Madrid special says
that great indignation hss .been aroused
here by Chamberlain's speech.
-Tbo Liberal compares tbe British
oolonial secretary to Lord Beaconafield
and tortella a European outburst against
England. It tbe suggested alliance is
ooneluded tbe universal ill will would be
similar to tbat manifested against England after the Jaroieson raid. Suob an
alliance wouldt however, be of the greatest possible blessing to Spain as it would

against the British strain ibut cannot
throw it off her line. Tbe Journal also
foretells a general alliance against tbe in*
satiable ambition of Great ritaiu. The
cheers raised for Spain by the French
cruiser Admiral Rigault are a sign ot
this. Cuba aod otber points can be utilised to make Gibraltar helpless,

little help, though it is possible, tbey
may be troublesome enough afterward*
What is called tbe bombardment of
Manila has led to no satisfactory results
whatever. Tbe^shelling of Spanish forts
in Cuba and Porto Rico|has not brought
nearer the surrender of those islands.
The insurgents are unwilling or unable to
afford any energetic aid to the attacking
forces. Even small bodies of disciplined
Spanish troops bave sufficed to repel invasion when thejinvaders had no organized military forces at tbeir command.
This is evidently admitted at Manila,
where B(?gressive>perations have been
practically suspended until the 15,000
troops, now being mobilized at San
Francisco, can be transported to the
Phillipines.
In time, of course, the U. S. will be
able to bring their immense, almost inexhaustible resources of military and naval
strength, but for the moment, nothing
decisive can be looked for so long ss Admiral Cerveras fleet is in being, and while
the American army is in process of manufacture. One fact is abundantly established which must work for peace. The
idea of any European intervention to
coerce the United States to abandon
their demands upon Spain was always
scouted in this country and is now given
up by altaost all intelligent powers on
this side bf the Atlantic
Chamberlain, the British Secretary of
State-tor-the,ColonieB^says:-iiWe-doubt-
it he desires alliance and whether it would
���be agreeable to the otber powers tbat
the United States after wresting the Phillipine islands from Spain should afterwards sell them to Great Britain." The
Novoe Vremya considers such an intention: "Sufficient to induce the powers to
reconsiders tbeir neutrality during the
present war."
BY WAY OF MADRID.
London, May 16.���The Madrid correspondent of tbe Daily Telegraph says:
"His prompt action in offering concessions to tbeJPhilippine insurgents is considered tbe best move Senor Sagasta has
yet made."
Captain-General Augnsti wires that,
"Admiral Dewey appears to anticipate
the oo-operation of the natives within the
next few. days; but no new insurgent
movement is noticeable."

CIVIC    OWNERSHIP
OF   FRANCHISES.
The by-law now before the city
council, to raise by the issue
of debentures, the sum of $40,CD0
for the purpose of " purchasing the
plant and business of the Nelson
Electric Light company*; opens up for
discussion the broad question of civic
ownership of franchises. Without
discussing the terms of the proposed
deal with the Electric Light company,
we may say in a general way that,
where properly managed, the direct
taxation in cities owning their own
franchises is nmch' lower than in
those where the franchises are held by
private individuals or corporation?.
The granting of monopolies of srteet
car and other franchises has proved
an almost unmixed evil and the source
of endless trouble in almost every city
on the American continent, and the
trend of civic legislation is now largely
along the line of taking out of the
hands of private corporations the
power to control the rates which the
citizens shall pay for water, electric
light, gas and other things .which
tend to make life in a city enjoyable.
The cities of Toronto and Winnipeg have had a great deal of trouble
with ' the street railway companies,
which not content with making immense profits out. of the-franchises
held by them, run their cswrs without
regard to tbe interests or convenience
of the citizens. The monopolies held
by them effectually prevent any competition and they can refuse to recognize any efforts to secure redress. ,
The amount of boodling in connection with the securing of valuable
franchises in the larger American
cities is notorious. Aldermen bave in
a number of cases on record, been
found not adverse to accepting money
in, consideration of support of a fran
chise.
The cities of Glasgow and Boston
are the two most notable examples of
civic ownership of franchises, and in
both cases the results have been highly
satisfactory. In the former, through
careful and judicious management of
the revenue derived from these sources, it has l>een found sufficient to
meet all requirements without imposing one cent of direct taxation on the
people.. Glasgow is perhops the best
governed   city  in the. world  today.
The rate of taxation in the city of
Boston last year was two mills in the
dollar, the balance of the money required to ruu . the. civic machinery
being.derived from the city ownership
of its street car system, electric light
plant, etc.
The city of Nelson already owns its
- own water works system, and although
we have not to hand the figures of
revenue and cost of maintenance and
collection- of rates, we have-been informed' that there is a considerable
profit from its operation. Besides the
convenience df the service, the people
appreciate the fact that the money
paid for it goes into the treasury of
A dispatch from Madrid says that
"Spain is not pleased with the utterances of Hon; Joseph Chamberlain on
the subject of the possibilities of an
Anglo-American, Alliance." A great
many, things-have happened during;
the past few weeks with which Spain
is not very well pleased.
Revelstoke has taken her position
as the youngest inthe sisterhood,of
Kootenay cities, the bill of incorporation having passed the legislature last
week. The infant is a lusty one and
has every prospect of making a vigorous growth.
On the principle that half a loaf ia
better than no bread, we are pleased
to see that the supplementary estimates submitted to the provincial:
legislature last Friday, contains an
appropriation of an. additional 81000
for. the Nelson public school. The
main estimates a few weeks ago contained an appropriation of $4000 for
the erection of a school building in
Nelson. This was considered by the
school board to be entirely inadequate;
and an additional grant of $2000. was
asked for. As will be seen the government have granted half' the amount
requested, with which the board will
have to be content for this year.

Thc Spanish newspapers are endeavoring to excite the sympathies of other
nations of Europe over, the possibility
of an Anglo-American Alliance and
the Imparcial says, "As Spain single-
handed makes headway against the
United States, she would prove a valuable factor in the. combination against
the' Anglo-Saxons." If the headway
made so far by Spain in the war ia
any indication of the headway that
would be made by any combinatian of
the nations of Europe against the
Anglo-Saxen race, the supremacy of
tbat race on land *nd water will not
be seriously affected. The headway
so far has been in tbe line of running
away from tbe enemy.

S. T. Wood, travelling correspondent
of tbe Toronto Globe, wbo is making a
tour of the Kootenay eountry in the interests of that paper is in the city. Mr.
Wood bas recently returned from a visit
to tbe boundary creek towns and reports
mining operations lively io that district
A number of tbe principal miues are
getting in new machinery and a large
amount of development work will be
done during the coming summer, and
with the advent of a railway the country
will progress rapidly.
The people are strongly in favor of
early railway communication with outside points and hail witb pleasure any
assurances of railway extension into tbeir
country, from any direction. At Grand
Forks and Greenwood be found a very
strong opinion against the redistribution
bill and the people object very strongly
to being annexed to the Rossland division. Tbey are afraid that a member
elected from the eastern andjmore populous part of the constituency will not be
inclined to pay much attention to their
needs. Tbe bulk ot their traffic is with
the Okanagan country and communication witb Rossland is difficult and expen-

At RoBsIflnd and Trail Mr. Wood found
the prospects bright. The citizens of
Hossland are expecting big things from
the operations of the British America
Corporation and at Trail he found a very
hopeful feeling among the people, owing
to the prospects of the early opening up
of the smelter. The construction of the
r>ew lead stack and other improvements
are being pushed rapidly ahead.

THE SPANISH FLEET.
Anxiously Expected at San Juan���General Macias Claims a Victory.
GAVE DISPATCHES TO ENGLISH.
New York, May 16.���A. special cable to
tho World from St. Thomas says *' Cap
taio General Maciaaand the Government
of San Juan are anxiously expecting the
Cape Verde fleet to come to the rescue of
the islands. While putting on a bold
front before tbe people, the authorities
are fearful of another disastrous onslaught by Bear Admiral Sampson's
squad ron, and are hopiDg that Admiral
Cervera will put in an appearance in the
harbor. Inquiries are being made from
San [Juan as to (he probable location of
the Spanish warships nnd disquieting
news has been sent. Captniu General
Macias1 fleet is far away from the troubled
Capitol.
Macias sends word thot he was victorious in the engagement with Sampson j
that the loss of soldiers was trifling ; that-
very few civilians were killed and that
only two of his guns were dismounted.
The American ships, he declared,-with
drew under Ore which was maintained
until tbey were out of range. The
damage done to his new battery was repaired over night and the brick and mortar of the ancient stone fortifications
were merely shaken up.
The band played on the Plaza the
night j after the bombardment, he declares, and the people gradually recovere
ed from their fright nnd the effects of the
bombardment.
The apparent retreat of the American
fleet cheeredj the volunteers. Before the
battle a large portion of the citizen soldiery were disaffected and waited the opportunity to revolt. It is now believed
that the Americans were defeated.   -    '
Paris,,May 16.���-The morning papers
and the director of the French Cable
company declare that the captain of
the United States auxiliary cruiser
Harvard on arriving at St. Pierre,
Martinique, gave his dispatches'to the

Wish to Retain tbe Friendship of America while Sympathizing with Spain.
Paris, May 16.���The Journal des
Debnts, during the course of a long article today reflects the anxiety in government circles here respecting the feeling
aroused in America on account of
France's open sympathy with Spain. It
says : " The whole affair is a misunderstanding. French opinion at the outset
of the war certainly considered that the
United States was wrong, and some of
the papers expressed this opinion in aggressive form. The Americans, however
should not have taken tbe matter bo
tragically, for of gli foreigners, onr natural sympathies are for tbe United States,
and our government throughout has
acted most correctly."
After charging Great Britain with being at the bottom of the mischief and
delcaring that it is America's own business, it she decides to intervene in distant
affairs, the article concludes: "What
concerns us is that America shall not, io
taking up the great role of international
domain, start with such conceived ideas
against us and renounce the good understanding with France, which has been so
useful in the past and which is still more
desirable in the future. The Frenob
nation was never really hostile to tbe
Americans. They will realize this when
the present friction has had time to disappear. ���       l

CONDITIONS OF INTERVENTION.
New York, May 16.���A cable to the
World, from Berlin, says:    ��
"An evidently inspired editorial in the
Post, treating ht the question of European intervention in the American-Spanish'war says:" "The time for decision
upon the question is rapidly drawing
nearer. If the powers eventually intervene it will ouly be on tbe condition that
the Spaniards -shall remain loyal to the
reigning dynasty.
"If they show any disposition to change
their government and place themselves
under the control of the republicans or
mutinous generals, they need not reckon
on any sympathy from the monarchial
powers."     ...
A JAPANESE PROTEST.
London, May 17.���A despatch to the
Daily Telegraph from St. Petersburg
says "Japan intends to protest vigorously against America seizing the
Phillipines. She has already sought
the assistance of Russia and conferences
are occurring between the Japanese ambassador and the Russian foreign minister. It is believed that France and .Germany will support Japan."
Hawarden, May 16���Mr. Gladstone haa
