London, May 19.���At tbe bauquet of
the Home Counties Liberal Federation
last evening, Sir William Vernon Har-
court, tbe Liberal house of commons
leader, instead of delivering an important party attaok, only uttered a few
words of grief and left the room. Tbe
Puke of Devonshire, speaking before tbe
Empire League, referred touobingly to
the mournful scenes at Hawarden.
In other places, Lord George Hamilton, the secretary of state for India;
Henry Campbellford Bannerman and
many others in London, as well as in
Birmingham, Swansea, Cardiff,Liverpool,
Edinburgh and elsewhere, at all kinds of
gathering, politicians, divines, agitators
and reformers���joined in the expression
of national and individual grief while
the press without exception published
oolumns of editorial comments.
It was tbe topic of tbe hour in Great
Britain, but abroad the evidence of sympathy were almost as universal. M.

Italy end Greece in spontaneous outburst, recalled how many oppressed peoples during Mr. Gladstone's life have offered hymns of praise for bis intervention in tbeir behalf; while iu Madrid,
even, tbe prospect of bis death caused a
24 ^hours' suspension of war animosity
against England.
New York, May 19.���A despatch
from Washington to the Tiroes says:���
Admiral Sampson is now, it is said, in
a position to be regularly and frequently informed of any appearance
of the enemy, and the Spanish Admiral is now, or soon "will be, cut off and
unable to turn to any destination
with safety. " We are bound to come
up with him," said a prominent naval
officer today, " unless he decides to
run foi* our coast. But that will only
defer the inevitable for a few days.
The longer he runs and dodges, the
shorter becomes the supply of coal.
Once that is exhausted, he has no
place to which he can go for supply,
except to ^San Juan or Havana. He
may select either port he prefers. If
it be Porto Rico, Sampson would return and resume bombardment. I do
not, however, believe that Admiral
Cervera will- permit his- fleet to be
bottled in the harbor and shelled where
he cannot manoeuvre. That would
condemn him for both unseainanlike
conduct and criminal waste of the
power of his fleet.   Few officers would
consider a suggestion to dash for the
coast of the United States as- one of
the probabilities. If that were undertaken it would be by vessels not in the
squadron now in the Carribean sea. The
danger from that source is regarded
as very slight. If the^squadron is proceeding by a northern route, it cannot
avoid being seen by vessels bound east
along tbe usual routes. If ttavelling
by a southern route' out of the usual
line, the scouts of the United States
navy are almost certain vlto sight it.
Charleston, Chesapeake Bay, Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Portland,
are considered by tbe navy department officials and by the ordinance
officers of the war department to be
���quite safe against any Spanish exploit-
London, May 19.���A despatch to the
Star from Montreal soys: "Senor Polo
bas secured by cable a coal depot at St
Pierre aud Miquolon, a French colouy
near the south coast of Newfouudlaud,
at which the Cadiz squadron will coal
previous to attacking tbe Atlantic seaboard cities of the United States, while
the Cape Verde squadron draws off the

Schley.       .���.;.'���

NEWS FROM THE PHILLIPINES.
Key West, Flo., May  19.���Senor G.
Bock, the wealthy Havana cigar merchant, wbo is waiting here for permission
to go to Havana on the German steamer
Polario, denies the stories of suffering
and starvation ia the large Cuban towns.
He claims to have over 6,400 men working on his tobacco plantation, and incidentally raising food enough for themselves and a large community besides.
Senor Bock says be is informed as to the
real situation and can set as many more
men  to  work  Raising   food   whenever
needed.   The farmers who  are  raising
products for the Spaniards, he explains,
are armed aud protected by the government:, ond he asserts that the  present
blockade cannot starve Havana or any
other part of Cuba  into surrender in a
hundred years.   When asked what was
beooming    of   the    Cuban   population
meanwhile, be  shrugged hiscshoulders
and remarked:   " The  stories   of  the
burned 'fields- and desolated  farms between Havana, Sagua, La Graude and
Matanzns, told by American investigators, were true wben written, but a fortnight put those farms in working order,
when protected by the government.   We
are raising a crop every forty days.
The.island will uot be captured by the
United States.   The force  against  tho
United States is too great, and it will be
many months yet before it is defeated. I
am a German.   Yes 1   I am also a Spaniard, but I wish it were all over tomorrow.   Yet it will never be ended as the
war is now being carried on.   Twenty
thousand American troops landed there
cannot take tbe island.   It is not like the
Philippines.   The  people of Cuba are
armed by tbe government and they wiil
fight.   Bow soon I go, I dou't know.   I
wait now for permission.   I know the
situation end am not afraid of starvation
in Havana.   Further, you have but four
weeks now to the wet season, and fighting for you tben will be impossible."
,      The naval authorities here ate said tu
visits upon the Spanish-authorities."-1"
CENSORSHIP OF DESPATCHES.
Rebel Forces have not yet Attacked Mar*
iia���Americans Capturing Steamers.
London, May 19���A Manila dispatch
under date of Friday says as follows:
"Despite tbe worries of the blockade
the spirits of the Spanish officials are
well maintained. The vessels of Ad->
miral Dewey's squadron keep their places
and content themselves with preventing
all supplies from reaching the beleaguered city. In* addition to taking possession of the cables from Manila to HoDg
Kong the Americans bave taken some
steamer*?, making for port and also
several coasting vessels. Nothing has
yet succeeded in passing the blockade.
Dewey is credited with a desire to capture the Spanish steamer Leyle, as
launches bave been scouting around the
coast. The Leyle is at present anchored
in the river Pampango,
Madrid, May 19,8 a. m.���A Havana
despatch auuounces the arrival there of
tbe German warship Geier. The despatch says the vessel did not salute the
American squadron either by guns or
flag, but paid the usual compliments to, ,*,.���*,
tbe Spanish forts, and her commander *>e fi^tmg Vigorously again st the release
made  lengthy  and   extremely   cordial of the Polario.   Tbey say her admissum
to Havana now ^would-be-tbe-height-of^-
folly, and it is believed that the permission, which it was understood had been
granted here, to proceed to Havana will,
if it was actually issued, be cancelled on
representations to Washington. Naval
officers point out that while the Cienfuegos cable has been cut, cable communication between Havana and Madrid is
still continued, probably through the
Santiago cable, which, it is understood,
\t as to be cut by a detached vessel ot Admiral Sampson's squadron. Thus, while
tbe situation here is so critical that the
censor is suppressing all information as
to the direction of the movement of the
two United States squadrons, it would be
most unwise to send to Havana a self-
announced Spaniard and an English
newspaper correspondent���Mr. Knight,
of the London Times���both of whom aro
fully informed of lhe very facts this gov.
eminent is endeavoring to keep from
Spaiu.
Tampa, May 19.���The strictest kind of
censorship bas been established and absolutely nothing, pertaining to military
or naval movement,from this port would
be permitted to be sent out .from this
time on.      - ���   .

from Sandiago de Cuba confirms tbe
report of the arrival of tbe Spanish

Havana says tbat Santiago de Cuba
has been under bombardment but no
great damage was suffered.

London, May 19.���The Madrid correspondent of the Morning Post says:
"One of the first acts of the new
cabinet will be- the expulsion from

PRIDAY MORNING,  MAY 20,  1898
The speech of Hon.-Joseph Chamberlain, at Birmingham, last Friday
has evoked a storm of criticism
among European' statesmen. TKe;
Russian ambassador has ��� been instructed to demand an explanation
of his allusion to Russia's perfidy,
and France is worked- up * over his
reference to the dispute between the
two nations in West Africa. His
determined stand will not, however,
result in war but will make the
European powers a little more cautious. They have traded too long
on England's isolation and apparent lack of decision, but when Great
Britain once takes a determined
stand on any question the other
powers will hesitate before provoking her beyond a certain point.
PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS.
Although the city of Nelson has
been incorporated but little over a
year, a great deal has been accomplished in that short time in the way
of public improvements. Prior to
April, 1897, the principal streets of
the city were little better than ungraded trails and many of them
were almost impassable on account
of stumps and other debris. The
amount of sidewalk in the town was
also very limited and only extended
along the principal business thoroughfares. The little mqney that
was spent in improving the streets
was given grudgingly by the provincial government, and to be of
any benefit whatever, had to be
supplemented by private subscription. The change in the appearance of the city since incorporation
has indeed been great and the city
council of last year and the present
council certainly deserve credit for
the energy they have displayed in
this line. The Miner has not always agreed with the city council
on their conduct of civic affairs and
has always opposed the introduction of boss rule in municipal business but there isnow a tendency among
the members to break away from
old associations and work for the
best interests of a progressive and
rapidly growing city. While it
cannot be denied that on some questions "clique" influences have governed the actions of the council, on
questions of public improvement,
they must be credited with spending
the amount of money at their disposal to the best advantage, at any
rate so far as the work that has
been done by .contract is concerned.
The city is growing rapidly botn
Small pox, yellow fever and malaria are the enemies the American
soldiers will fight and fall before,
this summer, if the scene of war is
in Cuba. For ten years the State
of Florida, under the helpful hand
of Dr. Joseph Y. Porter, State
Health Officer, has successfully barricaded its doors against all infection
and not even one sporadic case of
yellow fever has found its way
therein during those 120 months.
Now, what will be the result' Better had congress bottled up its feelings of indignation for outraged
Cuban humanity until frost' time^
at least, than send their own sons
into the scourge and invite pestilence to ravage their southern lands
for the remainder of the year;

WAR IS STILL ON!
in size and population and while
much has been^done, much remains
to be done. In this connection we
might call the attention of the council to the condition of Victoria and
Silica streets. The former has perhaps more travel than {any other
street in the city outside of Baker
street and Stanley street and is as
yet without a sidewalk. Silica
street is the main line of travel to
three of the churches of the city and
in parts of it, especially at the
bridge, is absolutely unsafe [for
travel after night. A couple of arc
lights might also be placed on these
streets with advantage. Of course
everything cannot be done at once
and at eveiy meeting of the council
petitions are 'received from parties
desiring sidewalks and the opening
up of new streets, but the necessity
of the work on Victoria and Silica
streets has already been recognized
by the council and should be proceeded with at once.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Sternaman trial is over, and
the once prisoner is acquitted. The
evidence was insufficient to convict
the woman, but the judge's final
words to her were sharp, clear and
Bismarck condemns the war. He
grounds his condemnation on the
conviction that it cannot result
beneficially either to America or
Europe. Bismarck is a great
man, but he has overlooked
a point, namely^thiat the war did
not originate in a desire to benefit
either Europe or America, but- to
put a stop to the atrocities committed by the Spaniards upon the unhappy Cubans. In taking the steps
she did, America has made no ���'��� Retrogression; in the hijgft sense of
civilization;" Her purpose is one
which civilization will applaud���not
condemn���and of which all disinterested nations must desire the accomplishment.

DIFFICULT NAVIGATIONS
Capt. Gore has returned to Nelson
after ihisitri|i��^^the,Big-iiBend^co��n-L
try. He took the steamer Lytton
from ^Revelstoke to La Porte, on the
Columbia River above Downie creek,
three times, having about 20 tons of
freight on each trip.
The water for the first twenty miles
is very rough, so rough indeed, that
all on board even the watchman, were
content to stay on deck, and Jadmire
the scenery, or consider how best they
could get off the boat, should the wire
rope, by which they were being lined
up happen to break. The (lowest
water found was 3 feet at the bar at
the Steamboat Rocks. The boat had
to be lined up nine times on the trip.
Leaving Revelstoke at 5 am., La Porte
was reached at 7 p.m., the trip: being
made in 14 hours. The distance from
Revelstoke to La Porte is 40 miles.
The three trips were made in 5 days,
and there will be no more made until
the fall, as it is Impossible to get' up
the Columbia in high water.
ANOTHER CANOEING ACCIDENT
Harman Knorr, a former rancher of
Okotoks, Alberta, who left Revelstoke
a week ago, with a party bound for
the Peace river, by the Big Bend route
was drowned last Sunday- at the
mouth of Carnes creek. The party
were tracking up the Columbia river
with their, boat in front and a Peterborough canoe towing behind. Knorr
was in the canoe when a wash from
the boat upset it throwing Knorr into
the water and before he could be
rescued he was swept away ��� by the
* swift current.

playing with the Nelson Lacrosse

much chance for playing against other
clubs. Incidentally, he mentions having cracked two libs, and having had
his noise broken at practice. He was
checking Jim Dallas, and Jim left
some front teeth on the field. No
wonder its hard for Nelson to get on
matches With other clubs."

[Special Correspondence to The Miner:]
Ottawa; -May13.���This has been a very
busy week in parliament, good progress
having been mad'awith the business oh
the order paper, ^and for a time there
Memed some prospect of reaching prorogation by Queen's Birthday bat there ib
small chance of that now, and the best
that can now be hoped Tor is that the
section will be wound up early in June.
The' only matters that are likely to consume much time in discussion now are
the balance of the Supplies Bill, the
Franchise Bill which1 awaits its third
reading and to which Sir Charles Tapper
will move an amendment providing f<jr a
final appeal to a county court judge by
those not on the voters' list;the Plebescite
Bill apon the third reading of which
very little debate is expected and a^gov-
ernment measure dealing with the administration of the Yukon and possibly one
having refereijoe to the much vexed question of transportation - in the siime territory. These matters out of the way, bat
little of interest will remain on the order
paper. ��� *
Considerable time bas been consumed
tbit session io the public accounts committee's examining into various contracts
whioh have beeuootfien% out tinder the
direction of the public works department.
Lengthy sessions have been held stretching from day to day, witnesses have been
gammoned from the four corners of the
universe,   and   wearying examinations
have been undertaken,   and in  every
single case the results have been to demonstrate the- -absolute honesty of  the
work done and the fairness of the prices
paid.   While no actual charges of crookedness have been preferred by Opposition
members tbere ean be little question that
all   this   investigation   instigated   by
tbem bad behind it not only the euspi
eidh of wrong doing bat the keenest de*
aire that-attch^raigbt-provis to-be the
facta.   Though tbe outcome is not wbat
waa contemplated hor desired yet the
promoter^ of these searching inquiries
have   rendered   signal service   to   the
country: in proving to such an undoubted
certainty that the affairs of {the public
works department are being economically
ahd honestly administered and tbe scrupulous care being exercised by Hon. Mr.
Tarte is safeguarding the publio interests.
After several days' abeenoe from the
bouse through illness, Sir Charles Tupper is back to his place and has signalized bia return by several vigorously bitter attacks on the mitiistert and others
who have'incurred his displeasure.   One
night be assailed the government for its
action in the oft discussed and almost
forgotten matter ot the post-election appointments made by his government and
disallowed by his successors  and tbe
next night he ��� made a vindictive attack
upon General Gasooigne: while a couple
of days later he attacked the members of
the press gallery and especially one correspondent who had incurred bis displeasure in eome personal reference sent
to one eastern paper.   Such incidents
are scarcely helpful to the party cause
and are inimical to the dignity of parliament.
Great interest was evinced in the der
parture of the Yukon expedition, under
Lt Col. Evans last week, and tbe boys
who are now on their-way to the inhoe-
I pitable country have left very many
warm friends ih Ottawa.

A WISCONSIN CYCLONE.
Kingston, Jamaica,   May   19.���The
firing continued   from noon   to one
o'clock.     Captain    Walker,   of    the
Adula, when coming out could not see
any marks of Morro Castle and inferred that the American ships drew the
fire of the batteries to learn the range.
There  was much   excitement in the
city.     The regulars   and  volunteers
were called out and new earthworks
and batteries  were erected on each
side of   the harbor   entrance.     The
number and calibre of the guns are
unknown, but it is known that there
are twenty one torpedoes in the Channel, electrically connected   with the
shore.   The cruiser Mercedes, ^whose
boilers, were   disabled, has. been anchored so that she can rake the Chan*
nel for BOO yards .and the merchant
ship Mexico, of Barcelona, mounting
four small quick firing guns, is in the
harbor.   Several coaling steamers and
schooners are at the wharves.   A few
days ago a German steamer brought
16,000  bags  of rice to  Santiago  de
Cuba.   Rice   and   sardines  are   the
principal food supply.
