clares the Silvelaists will oppose the measure to the length of obstruction Hnd
Senor Puigoerver declares tbat .the measure will not become c law while he is
minister. A crisis will be precipitated
by theCarlists, Republicans and Rome: o-
ists, who intend to iutrodnce a resolution
in favor of- impost.   This will divide the

minister - of publio instruction has given
notice that be Will reiign frem the ministry if the impost is not adopted.
,  The' alternative   ot Senor Camnzo's

has no searchlights so that a night opera-
ation of this .kind could be arranged.
Taking everything into account naval
officers feel that' Cervera has committed
the trap will prove inadequate to hold
the Spaniards. _ -     ���
CERVERA BOTTLED UP.
Washington, May 27,-rNaval officers
uow turning tbeir attention to inquiries  as to whether it is possible for
kdmiral Cervera to get out of Santiago
aarbor.   Tbey bold that bis manoeuvre
ia impossible and, being so, the career of
ue Spanish admiral is at an end, so far
it constitutes a menace against our
ships, if,  ae His pointed out,. Admiral
7ervera must come through a channel
yards wide, on which the Amerioan
rcblighUwill play constantly.   Itis
kaid that this is not mere opinion, but
iiat naval manoeuvres were carried on at
.ay West, a few months ago whichjfur-
aisb a positive demonstration tbat per-
rera cannot make an exit without being
abled. -_������������     ...
If Cervera sent out his torpedo boats
���flouts tbey would be deterred before
[tbey bad done any damage, and destroyed
by tho gunboats.   The American ships
juld bave the advantage of concentrating their fire on one small passage.  It is
[believed that if Admiral Cervera attempts
ipe, he will choose the night for the
lovement.    On the other hand, naval
officials are discussing the. means the
lander may adopt to make exit im-
Ipossible.   In tbe blockade of Charleston
[barges full of stone were sunk at tbe
[channel entrance cutting off egresB and
[ingress.   A few old bulks would serve
the same purpose in the present case.
There is difficulty in getting such old
Draft and the sinking of derelicts at pro*
jier points in  the channel would be
^attended with great danger.   They must
towed to position, subjecting those in
charge to the dangers of mines and tor-
ioes.   There are also tbe guns of Morro
I Castle to be guarded against  It is un-
Commodore Schley!s' Flying Squadron
Blockading Santiago de Cuba.
Key West, May 26.���Definite news
from '.the Amerioan squadron, operating
in Cuban waters, was received here tbi#
afternoon, fully confirming tbe general
situation outlined in these despatches
lost night and tbis morning. Comme*.
dore Schley is believed to be off Santiago
de Cuba today and definite information
as to tbe exact situation in so far as it
affects Admiral Cevera's squadron may
be expected tonight or tomorrow. Rear
Admiral Sampson is in a position to proceed quickly to the assistance of Commodore Schley's ships upon word from
Commodore Schley and at the same
time, be remains within striking distance of Havana. If, however, -Commodore Schley reports,that Admiral
Cervera is bottled up it Santiago de
Cuba, the naval view is that be will be
permitted to finish the business at tbat
point-with tbe ships now under bia
direction.
A  STEAMEB WRECKED/
Washington, May 26���Secretary Long
said at tbe close of office hours today
that no word had come from any of the
scouting vessels, so numerous in West
Indian waters, concerning the Spanish
flying squadron, wherefore he concluded
that Cervera was still in Santiago harbor. Supposedly Sobley is lying outside
watching the entrance, to prevent the
egress of the Spanish vesselc, but while
there is evidence of a certain kind on the
faet, there bas beeu no official confirmation of it: Tbis is a little remarkable ns
tbere is only a day's ran from Schley's
torpedo boats to a cable port in Hayti.
Tbere is also a curious class of inform; -
tion from newspaper boats on tbis point.
It was supposed the censors might bave
exorcised from the despatches from the
newspaper men, any reference to the
fleet, but according to tbe statement of
the department officials here, only that
part of the despatches that might relate
to the number and whereabouts of tbe
Uuited St;i (h forces would be forbidden
and tbe oensor's rules would not exclude
reference to the Spanish squadrons. Notwithstanding thut the officials profess
unshaken confidence in their belief that
the Spanish squadron is securely bottled
np in Santiago harbor there is no concealment by them of an inteuse desire to
secure some absolute-trustworthy inter-

"Tbe s��rereignty,p��bap8 the independence, of tbe nation ia banging in the
balance. Enemies attack us everywhere
abroad^ and tbere is famine at home. A
solution of the problem eannot1 be foreseen. Industry, commerce and agriculture are,dead.. The .flower of .Spanish
youth is: giving its life blood to carry on
the war and weakened mothers are nursing a new generation amidst these accumulations of evils. Patriotism demands onr silent inactivity, while tbe
politicians squabble over petty questions
depriving tbe nation ot a strong, united
government, capable of faoing the present struggles. The country may wait
while the government arranges its difference* with party policies, but Dewey,
Sampson, McKinley and Salisbury are
not likely to wait"
Tbe minister of marine, Captain Aunon
was asked it it were true, tbat Americans
were blockading Santiago de Cuba and
be replied, "It is to be presumed tbat
Americana _ will try. to hinder our ships
from leaving Santiago de Cuba, but I am
not certain whether the Americans arrived in time to do so. The latest despatch from Admiral Cervera on Tuesday
announoed tbat bia vessels were loading
coal."
Tbe general impression here is that
Admiral Cervera bai left Santiago de

WANT TO STOP THE WAB;
Report tbat Russia, Austria ancl Ftabfii
.   will Intervine..       ��'
London, May 26���The Star claims to
have information that tlie Frenoh minister for Foreign Affairs, M- Hanotaux,
is making great efforts to stop the Span*
isb-Ameriean war. It asserts that Russia. Austria and France are endeavoring
to induce Germany and Italy, to join in a
representation to President McKinley declaring that the powers mentioned would
send a fleet to put Cuba under international rule, as was done in tbe island of
Crete, until the withdrawal of tbe Spanish forces, and tbe founding of a regular
government. -It is further said tbat these
powers would'justify tbeir intervention
on tbe .ground that tbe present war
threatens the general peace of Europe.
Tbe Star's information is not regarded
seriously here.
Tbe Pall Mall Gazette say* "AU the
talk of assistance from Europe is moonshine. Neither France nor any other
power is likely to burn its fingers with
the. Spanish chestnuts. Senor Castillo,
tbe Spanish ambassador to France, most
probably bas a good deal to do in Paris;
but it iB of a financial character."

today rode iu the centre ot the troops
accompanied by Prince Constantine, the
Crown Prince of Greece. The Empress
of Germany and Crown Princess of
Greece, Princess Sophia of Prussia, sister
of the Emperor, followed in a carriage.
Emperor William has-appointed tbe
Crown Princess of Greece to be honorary

LOSS OF A FRENCH BRIG.
Halifax, May: 28;-The repOrt~ot the
loss of the French- brig, D. Genne
Granville, which was on a'voyage
from Louisburg, C. B. for St. Pierre,
Miquelon,* laden, with coal is confirmed. , Np^details have been received but
'it is believed that the'entire crew of
twenty men have perished.
Vessel Owners Disregard tbe Regulations
and Diiarrange Submarine Mines.
Washington, May 26.-Reports continue
to be reoeived at the War department
showing tbe utter disregard by vessel
owners and masters, of tbe regulations
which govern the arrival and departure
of crafts to and from mined harbors between the hours when thia is forbidden.
In three or four instances the vessels
bave dragged the cables Which connected
the submarine mines snd torpedoes with
the shore' batteries, resulting in..adisarrangement for the time beiog. Repairs are made promptly, however,
though at great inconvenience to the
engineer officers.  ''';''*
The result bt 'one "vepseFs" incursion
recently was to set adrift along the Atlantic coast south of New York, a number of torpedoes eaoh .of, winch contain
probably 100 pounds of dyhaniite.; Vessels were sent out to took for tbem, but
thus far only one has been picked up.
Key West, May 26.���On leaving jthe
Barbadoea on ber trip northward, the
battleship Oregon sailed almost directly
north, going north of Porto Rioo about
150 miles. The northerly .oourse was
continued untill the Bermudas were
reached off the east of Florida.1 Captain
Clark explains that the'reason for going
to Jupiter Inlet instead of patting in at
Key West was to enable the.Oregon to
be ready to go either to Key West or to
Hampton Roads in short' order, alter
getting information from Washington.
Captain Clark had .no official knowledge of tbe situation after leaving Rio
Janeiro on April 30. During the entire trip, the crew expected momentarily tb meet the Spaniards. Only
once, however, was there a call to
arms. This was shortly after midnight on leaving Rio Janeiro. As the
Oregon' was plowing through- the ���
black equatorial waters, a darkgobject
"was discovered ahead. The call1 to
itomttmro Otoo aanuii^,-t1>rroe�� tolled
out pf their berths with the enthusiasm
of boys on circus day, and almost in*
stantly every, gun was manned. The
Oregon, left her course and circled
around ber black pursuer only to Ood
it a harmless bark, instead of a Spun*
ish (warship. Back to their bertha
crept the crew with mutterings of disappointment and disgust
At Rio Janerio Capt. Clark waa told
that tbe Spanish torpedo boat Temerario
was following him. Tbis added new in*
terest to the trip for a day and a night,
but at the next port of call he waa in*
formed that tbe Temerario had gone into
dry dock at Rio, jost after tbe departure
of tbe Oregon. Tbeoruise through the
Straits of Magellan waa most interesting.
It was at tbe extreme pointof the American hemisphere that the crew expected a
visit from tbe Spaniards. At many
places the channel is very narrow witb
bidden bays and oovea back of tbem and
mountains towering Into the clouds on
tbe other side. Moreover they were in
the land of icy winter, fox more tban a
month tbey bad been sailing under tbt
tropical stars and now the blasts of December whistled among the olouds above
tbem and at nigbt ice lay on the deck.
Halifax, May 26. ���There is absolutely
no truth in the story of Spanish and
French warships being off this port, and
forta of Great Britain being manned.    *
IMPRESSING SPANISH STEAMERS.
Madrid, May 26.-It is said that all
Spanish steamers, from 1,600 tons up,
are to' be impressed for use aa auxiliary
cruisers,    ' ���;        ' *      "
FAVORING THE AMERICANS.
Chicago, May 26���A special to the
News from Washington says the German
and French consuls at Honolulu have
filed information at the State department
of a complaint of their governments
against the alleged favoritism shown by
the Dole government of Hawaii to the
United States. These reports aroused
great interest in congressional and diplomatic circles.
HEARTLESS  SPECTATORS.
Cornwall! 6ht, May 25���Clarence
Sauve, aged Bix years, was drowned here
today in full view of a number of people
who made no efforts to save him.
TRANSPORTS WANTED.
San Franoiaoo, May 26.���Tbe transporting ot 60,000 troops to tbe Phillip-
pines has set government agents to work
scouring the Pacific ocean for transport
vessels. So far only 2,600 troops bave
been sent to Admiral Dewey's aaeistanoe.
There are 7,000 more in oamp here and
40,000 to eome. About 15 more transports are required together with a half
dozen collier*.
MeKINNON DROWNED.
A Former Kootenay  Steamboat
Drowned in the 8tickine.
Mao
Victoria, May 26-News haa been received here of tbe drowning in the rapids
between Glenora and Telegraph creek, of
Wm. McKinnon, formerly identified with
lake steamers of the Kootenay. He was
proceeding to the Klondyke with a party
of five and was making an extra trip from
Telegraph Creek to Glenora, to secure
any that might have arrived, when his
canoe upset and McKinnon and a oom-
panion whose name is not reported were
drowned.
The superintendent of Provincial
Police who has bad orders to examine
carefully into the interests of the man
found dead in a sack at Vancouver reports that the case is clearly one of
suicide after several attempts.

LEADERS:, OF   MEN,
The.lecture .deliveredAV-eduesday.even-,
ing under the above title, in ibe Methodist church, wns a rare, treat for thow
present. The lecturer, Dr. Sutherland,
is pne. of the. most-eloquent1 div^es in
tho Methodist connexion, and he did pot
fail, to sustain bis reputation. For au
hour and a hnlf the audience.was spellbound under the magio influence of the
speaker's thought, tbe main outlines of
whioh were as follows:
In every, age'the world has bad its re-
.presentative men. Theee were not tq be
accounted for as the product of their et-
vironm��nt. On the contrary they -were
endowed with- the;- power of ruling circumstances. The,story, pf Joshua's causing the sun to stand still is trne, and,the
same power is .exerted today by those
wbom wo r*8��>|:ni.z.e.n8leadera of men in
the vadpns fteJds of hooian thought and
.activity. ',:.. ,���._",'.
3How to recognize tho true leaders of
men and how,to form .them.is the .great
questiou for. society to answer for itself.
By leaders of.men is. not .meant .the
political boss; or the man whose sole
business it is to, foster doubt; or that
missing link better known as the dude.
Sc>(ne pf tko best.auil-gre-atest leaders, of
meu bave been women. These lead men
in ; various manners, by the head, by tl e
heart* by the stomach, and not uufre
fuently by the nose, yet are^ever careful
to keep tbe leading-strings out of sight.
.The, tlrst department of humau activity in which leaders, of men are needed
is in the marts of commerce. Th? melancholy fact.that commercial industry is
permeated with an element of untruth*
fulness is all too manifest, and the chief
blame does not lie with (he dealer. It is
due, largely to that .mysterious.. or*ze:for
bargains from whioh the women are the
worst sufferers. The standard of oom-
meieial integrity is higher in Britain
than.in,Canada. Tbe great need is to
hold the standard hfgher until the principle dominating-the business man's ear.,
reer becomes embodied iu bis determination to pay the last' dollar he owes if it
takes his life to work it out.
Leaders of men are needed in the field
of .statesmanship; men whom the people
can fully trust and safely follow. In
times like the.present, times of great
political change, vyben tbe ohanges made
in; the jti^ture mayibe even;grea,ter than
those of tbe past, weneed-men who can
breast tbe wayee of* buoiap, passion, ancl
savei thegootj which is in, exwting, institution* for use in controlling the destin:
jes of tbe.futnrd. -We have :h.��4 ,*hoh
men... = So, Jong ,,*�� ,.^)i^e^s}^m*\Y,'.*!tp^
incorruptible iptegrity^are esteemed-virtues among men: the, name of Abrfbam
Lincoln will tie held: in reverence. :i
In the intellectual realm leaders of
men are needed,, whojim be trusted, who
haye convictions of tbeir own. One, man
with a conviction, ia worth more jjban a
hundred W���� with nothing but doubts.
The old -heathen belief in nature ;bM
been revived, and many men have forgot:
tepi: Q-r ovedppked tbe fsqt that (behind
every law, whether of Betureior.of .men,
there must be an intelligence.
The chief influences whioh bear a, ^ert
in the formation: of these leadersof men
are the influences of home, those wbiob
are brought into play in early life. The
most glorious privilege given to woman is
the right to mould ithe livee of; the; lead-
era of men.

GEOLOGICAL SURVEY.
Summary   Report  of   the Geological
Survey Department.
The summary report of Prof. George
M. Dawson, - Deputy Head and Director of the Geological Survey Department,' for the year 1897, has been
issued. The report gives a detailed account of the result of the field work
undertaken by the Department during
the year, and the observations of the
gentlemen entrusted with the carrying out of that work, as recorded in
the report, cannot fail to be of great
value to those engaged in developing
the resource^ of the country.
In British Columbia, attention-was
given almost entirely to the West
Kootenay district, Mr. B. G. Mc-
Connell continuing ��� the geological
work here while the necessary topographical data were obtained by Mr.
J. McEvoy. The principal rock formations of the district have been
recognized and outlined and much
valuable information respecting the
occurrence of the various classes of ore
deposits has been obtained.
The staff were occupied principally
during the summer in the south eastern portion j. of  the district,  between
the Salmon river and Kootenay lake
and river ahd south of Midge creek.
An effort was made to collect sufficient
data   for   a general   geological and
topographical   map,   embracing   the
region in which the principal mininp
camps of West Kootenay are situated.
The principal topographical feature of
the country examined is its persistently mountainous character, the whole
region,   with the   exception   of the
valleys of the Kootenay and Salmon
being simply   a succession of   high
mountain ranges, separated by narrow, steep   sided valleys   that have
been carved   out by   the   torrential
streams., draining the district.   These
streams. head   in a   high range  of
quartzite and granite peaks and ridges
that extend  from the international
boundary north to Ymir mountain.
From the summit range, transverse
; ridges gradually decreasing in height,
but often swelling into high peaks, ex-
tend outwards to the main valleys:
East of the summit range, a prominent group of mountains, with peaks
occasionally exceeding 8000 feet in
height, occurs near Kootenay Lake,
between Cultus and Summit creeks.
They are built of granite, and owe
tbeir superior elevation to the greater
resistance offered to deundation by
this rock than by the surrounding
softer schists.
The geology of the district lie extremely complicated and has only been
deciphered so far in a general way.
The following extracts from the
report will be of interest:
VM The region examined 'during the
past season does not include any of
the larger mining, camps of the district, but it is nearly everywhere more
or less metalliferous, and mining
claims have been staked off by the
score pn all the principal creeks, and
on some of tbes^claims a considerable
amount of development work has been
""done.r
needay afternoon Stephen Jeffrey and his
pnrtuer, H. Plockney entered the No. 4
tunnel of tbe HallMines on their way to
their work, Jeffrey walking ahead.
When they reached tbe shaft Jeffrey
stooped uuder tbe guard rail and stepped
as be thought, into the cage, but tbere
was no cage there. He fell with a
sickening crash and was killed on the
spot. His partner called out to him and
made a grab at his clothing, but both the
warning and the attempt to rescue came
too late.
lhe remains were brought down to the
parlors of the Nelson Undertaking Co.
yesterday morning aud the ooroner, Dr.
Arthur, held on inquest at 7 p.m. at the
court house. The coroner's jury consisted of Messrs. Gilker, Lamont, Shaw,
Lilly, Dickinson and Grant. Mr. Gilker
was chosen to act as foremau.
H. Plaokney, miner, I. Palmer, engineer, F. Lapetins and C. Sohunemai
were called as witnesses. Tbeir evidence
brought out the facts given above, and
also that the tunnel was well lighted. An
electric light was right ovor the shaft,
and it is extraordinary that he did not
see that tbe eaae was not there, moro
especially as be bore tbe character of a
cautious, experienced miner.
The verdict was " Tbat tbe said
Stephen Jeffrey eame to his death on
on Wednesday, May 25tb, 1898, by stepping into en open shaft in the No. 4
tunnel of tbe Silver King mine. From
the evidence given we are of tbe opinion
that no blame therefor can be attached
to the mine management."
The deceased was {an Englishman by
birtb, but bad settled in Negannee, Mich,
where his remains will be shipped for interment.
The burial arrangements will be undertaken by tbe Knights of the Golden
Eagle, a benevolent society of Negannee
of whioh deceased was a member.

"The band of dark slaty rocks east
of the Salmon Biver, tbat has been
referred to astbeNisconlith, is traversed
by a number of leads, some of considerable promise. The Ymir claim,
north of Wild Horse Creek, is situated
in these slates, about half a mile east
of (their contact with the basic eruptive series. The Ymir lead cuts the
slates ina direction S. 66�� W. and
dips to the north-west at an angle of
00O to 700. The principal workings
at the time of my visit consisted of a
cross-cut 70 feet in length, a shaft at
the end of the cross-cut 103 feet deep,
and drifts 6!) feet to the north-east and
106 feet to the south-west along the
vein, at the bottom of the shaft. The
shaft follows an ore-body varying
from 10 to 20 feet in thickness, and a
cross-cut of the vein on the south-west
drift/ 60 feet from the foot of shaft,
cut nearly 30 feet of ledge matter, of
which 18 feet was stated to be payable
ore, carrying values of $20 or over,
principally in gold. The ores consist
of galena andiron-pyrites, with some
blende and the gangue is mainly
quartz."

regarding the geological formation in
other mines in the district examined

A FATAL ACCIDENT.
On Questions in Dispute Between the
Dominion and^Provinoial Governments.
Toronto, Ont., May 26.���A special cable
to tbe Evening Telegram from London,
Msy 26, says:���Judgment was given by
the Imperial Pi ivy Council today on the
questions submitted by the Dominion and
Provincial governments of Canada. The
judgment is ..considered here ai being in
favor of, the provinces. ' Tbe ease was
argued July 28,1897, Mr. Edward Blake,
Q.C., Mr. A. Irving, Q.C. and Mr. J. M.
Clarke, Q.C., appearing for the Province
of Ontario.
The following is a summary of the
decision on the points submitted:
1. That the beda of the rivers and lakes
are the property of the provisoes.
2. That the publio harbors are vested
in the Dominion 1 but in respect of harbors generally, it is dependent on tacts
whether or not the harbors become Dominion property.
3. Fishing regulations seem to be
divided between the provinces, and the
Pominion has power to make regulations
regarding open and closed seasons, the
meshes in nets, etc, but the ownership
of the fishing privileges rests in the
provinces, The Pominion has the power
to issue licenses to partiee acquiring
fishing rights from tbe provinces, but
oanuot grant monopolies.
4. The right of the Pomihipn to pre-
