Lawton sent back this afternoon an
urgent request for more rations. The
mules and stores are already ashore,
but some of the trappings are still on
board ship and will be taken off during the night. Colonel Humphreys
says he will have a pack train loaded
and on its way by daylight tomorrow.
It should reach Juragua before night.
An attempt to send supplies to
Juragua this afternoon by boats failed.
TO PROLONG THE WAE.
On Board the Associated Press Despatch Boat Wanda, Off Juragua, Friday Afternoon, June 24, via Playa del
Este, Guantanamo Bay, June 24.���At
8 p. m. this morning (Friday) four
troops of the First cavalry and eight
troops of Roosevelt's Rough Riders,
less than a thousand men in all, dismounted and attacked 2000 Spanish
soldiers in the thickets within 57
miles of Santiago de Cuba.
The Americans beat the enemy back
into the city, but they left the following dead upon the field:
Rough Riders, Captain Allyn, of K
troop.
Sergeant Hamilton Fish, jr.     ;7
Privates 1 Tillman and Donaldson,
both of troop A.
Privates Dix, York, Kolbea, Berlin
and Denmark, Tenth cavalry, and Corporal White.
At least 50 Americans we're wounded,
including four officers, and several of
the wounded will die. Twelve dead
Spaniards were found in the brush.
after the fight, but their loss was
doubtless far in excess of that. General Young commanded lhe expedition
and was with the regulars while Colonel Wood directed tlie operations of
the Rough Riders. Several miles wesc
both parties struck the Spaniards about"
the same time, and the fight lasted, an
hour. The Spaniards opened fire from
the thick brush, and they had every
advantagei of ' numbers"" and" position
from the start. They stormed the
block house around which they made
the final stand and sent them scattering into the mountains. The cavalrymen wTere afterwards reinforced by the
Seventh, Twelfth and Seventeenth infantry, part of the Ninth cavalry, the
Second Massachusetts and the Seventy-
first New York.
The Americans now hold the position
at the threshold of Santiago de Cuba
with more troops going forward constantly, and they "are preparing for a
final assault upon the city. The following officers were wounded:
Major Brodie.shot through the right
forearm.
Captain McClintock, troop B, shot
through the right leg.
Lieutenant J. R. Thomas, troop L,
shot through the right leg. His condition is serious.
All the foregoing officers are Rough
Riders.
Other officers wounded are:
Captain Knox, whose condition is
serious.
Major Bell, and Lieutenant Bryan.
These officers are of the First cavalry.
Edward. Marshall, correspondent of
the New York Journal-Advertiser, was
seriously injured in the small of the
back.   .. *     '
~"~It is~probable~that"at'least ten men
in the list of wounded will die.
The American Plan of Campaign Expected to Prolong tho War.
0 London, June 24. ���The   Madrid correspondent of the Times says:
The American landing at Santiago
de Cuba has made little impression
here. Nobody doubts the ability of the
town to resist for considerable time,
while eveu if it should be captured,
matters will not be advanced much, as
the concentration of tlie American
efforts at Santiago will give General
Blanco time to complete his preparations for the, main struggle. This
change in tno American plan of campaign as shown in the Santiago expedition is expected to prolong rather
than curtail the duration of the war.
Regarding the prospects of peace,
doubtless any solution consistent to
national honor would be accepted, but
the initiative must come from the outside. I cannot find the slightest indication that it will come from the
Spanish government.
SEVERE FIGHTING.
Spaniards Driven Back���Severe Losses
on Both Sides/
Playa del Este, Cuba, June 24.���A
serious engagement took place this
morning five miles from Santiago on
land. More than 1000 American cavalry and rough riders fought 2000
Spaniards in a thicket, driving them
back into the city. The American
los's was 12 or IS, and at least 50
wounded, including six officers. Several of tho wounded will die.
Twelve (Spaniards were1 found dead
iii the bush, but their loss is doubtless
greater. The Spaniards had every advantage of numbers and position.

Honolulu, Juno 17, via San Francisco, June 24. ���Orders have been
issued requiring all members of the
Hawaiian national guard, active and
honorary, to report immediately to
their respective commanding officers
the amount and character of any equipment in their possession. The movement probably prefaces the placing of
the army on a war footing as a precaution against any emergency.
If advisable, most of the companies
wil recruit to their full limit of 150
officers and men. It is believed that
in the event of annexation the local
regiment will be at once hurried to
Manila.

Cuban  Negro Soldiers  Are Unclothed
and Badly Armed.
Quartermaster's Department, on
Board the Associated Press Despatch
Boat Dauntless, Off Daiquiri, Thursday Afternoon, June 23, via Kingston,
Jamaica, June 24.���Last Saturday
afternoon the American flag was flown
from the top of Altares mountains
back of Daiquiri amid wild enthusiasm. The men cheered and waved
hats, tho warships aud transports let
loose their sirens and the bands played
the "Star Spangled Banner." Major
Lamott with two men of the volunteer
cavalry climbed the heights and raised
the flag. The Cubans under General
Demetrius Castello, who entered
Daiquiri, sifter the Spaniards had deserted the town, wore "little more
clothing than rags, many of thein
being two-thirds naked. Some had 110
trousers and only tattered shirts, while
the majority of them were bare-footed.
They were mostly negroes, some being
boys only 15 years old. The guns they
carried were of many models, ranging
from flintlocks to Mausers and Remingtons. All, however, were armed
with machetes. The officers rode
donkeys and scrub horses. The sun
was blazing hot ancl a number of the
soldiers were prostrated by the intense
heat. They were taken on board the
hospital ships.
The troops are in fine spirits and
are overjoyed at the aggressive attitude assumed by General Shafter, who
believes lie can force his way into
Santiago de Cuba and strike the Spanish dons a heavy blow. The celerity of
the forward movement of the United
States army has embarrassed the
quartermaster's department.    General
Madrid, June 24.���The cabinet met
today under the presidency of the
Queen Regent. Sagasta briefly explained the situation at home and
abroad. No further news was received
from the Philippines or from- that
island of Cuba, The Queen Regent
signed a decree suspending the cortes,
to be read at the session this evening.
General Correa, the minister of war,
said-"thatr~active"-operation3-would-be
commenced against the American
troops who were entrenched at Santiago de Cuba.
EDMONTON NOTES.
Edmonton, N. W. T., June 24.���
Frank Oliver, M. P,. was banqueted
last night, and addresses were presented
by South Edmonton. St. Albert and the
board of trade of Edmonton and district. "   ��
The Osborne party, which arrived at
Nelson river on May 21, left on March

Liard.
Washington. June 24.���The war is
to bo carried into effect,metaphorically
speaking, if Spain is foolhardy enough
to send the Cadiz fleet through the
Suez canal and to attack Dewey in the
Philippines. It is announced on government authority that before the last
Spanish vessel has passed through tho
Suez canal an American scmadron will
be speeding across tho Atlantic
straight for the coast of Spain to "bring
the war homo to the Spanish people.
There is no doubt that Dewey can tako
caro of himself ji gainst the Cadiz
squadron, since his own squadron will
be reinforced by the ironclads long before Camara's ships sight tho bay of '-
Manila, and will have the shore batteries with him instead of against
him in the struggle. But it has been
concluded by the admmstratiou that
nothing short of the most severe measures will suffice to bring the Spanish
people1 to a realizing souse of the hopelessness of the continuance of the
present war, and even kindness, it is
held, will dictate such a blow as that
which it is proposed to administer if
the Spanish persist in their last project.
After the fall of Santiago and the
capture or destruction of Cevera's
squadron Sampson will have an abundance of vessels to spare for the task set
for them. No official news came to
the war department during office hours
today from the army near Santiago. -���-,
This caused mild suipriso at the department, as General Shafter lias a
cable at his command, and it was expected he would report the measure of
sticcess ho has attained in the debarkation of liis army on Cuban soil and
the beginning of operations against ,
Santiago. However, the general has
the reputation of being a man of
deeds rather than words and of not
being given to over many official reports. Not hearing from him, tho
officials were obliged to reply for information entirely upon press reports.
They found these highly satisfactory,
and Secretary Alger expressed particular gratification at the news that tho
troops reached a point near \yithiu
seven miles of Morro Castle without
encountering serious rcsistenco.
The direction taken by the troops
after their lauding at Daiquiri tending
generally westward, is taken in somo
quarters to indicate a purpose to unite
with Sampson's fleet in an attack on
Morro Castle and the other forts at tho
entrance of Santiago harbor before
turning their attention to the town
itself. Once the fort is captured,
Sampson with his small beats could
remove the mines, and if, as reported,
the Merrimac does not completely
obstruct the channel, some of the battleships may be sent in to deal with
Gervera's-squadron. *_Ju_its_lastjce.pDrfc,^_ii=
with great satisfaction, the navy department today published Sampson's
statement that Hobson and his men are
well and are not in the line of fire. It
was also noted that Sampson finds no
difficulty in having his flag of truco
respected, which is gratifying in view
of the statement coming from Havana
some days ago that there was to bo a
lapse into barbarism through tho refusal of tho Spaniards to "recognize
tho flag of truce.

THE N. P. R. R. IN CANADA.
There appears to be little or no
doubt, according to the evidence given
in yesterday's issue of the Spokesman-
Review, that the Northern Pacific
railway is negotiating for, if it has
not already acquired, the Spokane
Falls & Northern railway. M. P
Martin, general auditor of the Northern Pacific, has spent the last week
going over the railway company's
books, and it seems probable that the
Northern Pacific, which is reaching
out in all directions for feeders, has
acquired the Nelson & Fort Sheppard
and tho Columbia & Red Mountain
railways as well.
The  Spokesman-Review telegraphed
to   St.   Paul   for information   on the
��� subjoct and received the  following reply-
4' St. Paul, Minn., June 23. ���Northern
Pacific officials here have no doubt
that the Spokane Falls & Northern
has been absolutely acquired by the
Northern Pacific railway, but have not
heard the details of tho deal. They say
that the Canadian Pacific would have
tried to get the property had it secured
, satisfactory legislation from the Canadian parliament.
"The new line should prove a very
valuable feeder from the Boundary
creek, Kootenay and Rossland mining
districts, and its effect on revenue
should be considerable, as the new territory tapped promises to yield immense quantities of ore, "andVthus
again attract large crowds of immigrants and prospectors. The Spokane
Falls & Northern has 140 miles of
main lines and 77 miles of allied line,
and its bonded indebtedness is about
$3,050,000, which is considered small.
"Incidentally, the  Great Northern
will be benefited by the deal. ", *   *
"F. A. MURRAY,     -
"Railroad Editor Pioneer Press."
It will be seen from the above that
the big American railroads are aa
strong believers as ever in the future
of this country, and are endeavoring,
to get an even larger share of the business'rof^Koo^-^r^isi&ytiS^k^*
has absorbed the bulk of the Rossland
and Boundary Creek trade, owing to
the enterprise of the Spokane mer
chants in getting in before the "eastern
Canadian business men had awakened
tD the possibilities of the future.
Fortunately the Canadian Pacific
railway have now got their] extension
into the Kettle River district well
under way, and Canada will henceforward have at least an equal chance
to secure the rapildy increasing business of that district. It is very much
to be regretted that owing to the
action of the Dominion parliament
the Canadian Pacific was unable to secure the Corbin lines, and thus prevent what is practically the imposition
of a tax on southern British Columbia
in favor of the merchants of Washing-
tan and American railways. By this
we mean that every dollar paid to outside business houses is so much money
lost, not to the district itself so much,
as most of the money would have to
leave Kootenay in any case, but to
Canada, and to that- extent the prosperity of Canada.as a whole, and indirectly the prosperity of British Columbia, is not enhanced by the development of the resources of this country.
The sum of money thus annually
lost to Canada is no inconsiderable
one, and all true Canadians, who are
not permeated with that petty spirit
of localism which is but too common,
should rejoice at the introduction and
expansion of all and any Canadian industries, whose profits insteadl of "being
The world has been wondering why

reputation, should havo been content

he real solution probably lies in a
fact that is not generally known. Before wur broke out the engineers of
the Spanish fleet were almost exclus -
ively Scotchmen. These men, not
wishiiig to fight against the United
States, left the service in a body on
hostilities breaking out, and their
places were filled by inexperienced and
incompetent Spaniards. Such being,
the case, the wonder is, not that Cervera has done so little, but that he
ever got across the Atlantic at all.
There has been some wonder, too, expressed at the fact that no attempt has
been made to capture, or even bombard, Havana, the American fleet confining their operations to Santiago, an
isolated town at the extreme end of
the island, and surrounded by a country
already in the hands of the insurgents. The reason is perhaps supplied
by the report of an American ship's
officer, recently come from Havana,
and who states that the city is practically impregnable either by land or
sea. He further asserts that the blockade is' not properly maintained, and
that several ships laden with food
have arrived.

Nations do not seem to be any
more grateful than individuals. It is
not long ago since the United States
approached the verge of war Avith England in defense of Venezuela's claims.
The entire press of Venezuela is now
showing its gratitude by exhausting
their vocabulary in abuse of America.
It is worthy of note, too, that the
only exception is a paper written in
English and edited by an Englishman.
In another column we print a copy of

WHERE MARRIAGE IS LOTTERY.
That marriage is a lottery is not
merely a figure of speceh in the province of Smolensk, Russia; it is an
actual fact. ; There four times every
year! a lottery is drawn, the capital
prize being a young country girl, with
sometimes a good dowry in sheep and
farm tools, with also perpetual rent
of a farm thrown in. The price of a
ticket is one ruble, or about 80 cents.
At a single drawing 5000 tickets are
sold. He who is so. fortunate as to
draw the lucky ticket has this altern-
ative~he may marry the girl if she
pleases him,, also gaining thereby 5000
rubles ($4000) in addition to whatever
tne eirl brings with her as dowry, or
if the prize in question does not please
him he can turn the ticket over to a
friend. But in so doing the winner
loses his rights, to ���; the dowry, which
belongs to the girl. ' He has, however,
another choice: the ' 'prize" sometimes
refuses to wed the winner. In that
case- they divide the 5000 rubles, and
must regard each other as strangers
until three months have passed and
the time for the next lottery comes
around.^JusfcaiowJthe-lottery.ls��� said
to be popular, for the same couple has
for the third time divided 5000 rubles
and.; separated. The capital prize is
still in the market, and so is the
thrice Avinner.
THE BRITISH ISRAEL IDEA.
: Mr. Chamberlain's suggestion of an
alliance betweeu the United States and
Great Britain did not cause a bit of
surprise to the members of the British
Israelites association, or British Israelites, as they are known, says the New
York correspondent of the Chicago
Inter-Ocean. The association has members in the United States as well as in
Great Britain. They believe that this
alliance was foretold by the prophets
of old, as Avas also the present Avar
with Spain. This is said to be the beginning of a great European Avar,
which will bring about an alliance between Russia and the various Latin
countries of Europe, and an alliance
between Great Britain and the United
States. The British Israelites declare
that the Americans and English are
descended from the ten lost tribes of
Israel, and that the war will fulfill the
prophecy in Jeremiah 806, that "the
world shall be gathered , together
against. Israel,'' and there shall be a
time of great tribulation and fear.
This time is referred to in the
prophecies as "Jacob's Trouble," and
in the books of the adherents of this
cult it is called also the great'' war-
woe. " They say also that these Avars
and rumors of wars are some of the
signs by which Christ told his disciples that they were to know the second coming of the Lord was near.
Some of the British Israelites have so
much faith in their own interpretation of the prophecies that they expect
the millennium to arrive with the close
of these wars, in about three and one-
half years.

A BOOMING TOWN.
Vancouver & Nelson, B. 0.
(416
The New Town  of  Brooklyn Is   Exceedingly   Lively.
Brooklyn, the ne-sv town on Lower
Arrow lake, is humming with industry. The beach is ..piled* high-with
all descriptions of merchandise, machinery, railroad scrapers, wagons and
plows. The Rossland and Kootenay
are landing from 20 to 100 passengers
daily, who are merchants, laborers and
speculators. There is not a building
in the city at present, but tents are
plentiful    <i ,
, The cause of the building, of this
town is the fact that Mann, Foley
Bros & Larsen have established their
headquarters here and are now building a wagon road to Cascade City, on
Christina lake, 40 miles west, and
when this is completed the contractors
wil rush in supplies when work will
be pushed in both directions from that
point.
At the very doors bf the new town
a tunnel will bo constructed, almost a
mile in length, which will consume
eight or ten inonths in construction.
This means steady employment for
hundreds of men and a payroll of a
thousand dollars a day. When the road
is fully equipped with men, teams and
machinery it is thought fully 5000
men will be on the line. The expense
of construction is estimated at $4,000, -
000. Brooklyn is headqarters for all
supplies. The contractors have offices
built here, and immense store houses
have been constructed for sheltering
the merchandise.
The Canadian Pacific will construct
a^wharf^OxlSO^feet Jo accommodate
the business that is being transacted
at Brooklyn, as every steamer unloads
tons of merchandise of all description.

THE   MINER'S   FAIRY.
1
; Last night while the staff of The
Miner were engaged in the production
of pearls of wisdom, gems of wit and
whole storehouses of information for
the benefit of an expectant and appreciative public, Fairy Bountiful suddenly appeared on the scene laden
with all kinds of good things for the
delectation of Tmuch tried and suffering mortals. The Thorne typesetting
machine, usually, the center of. attraction, was forgotten, the typo was
thrown aside, and pens dropped, while
the steady disappearance of cakes and
strawberries and cream attested a victory of matter over mind.* The Miner
is very, .grateful.-.to its "fairy" and
hopes she will call again!
The steamer Lytton makes daily trips
with frieght and passengers.
A raft containing 150,000 feet of
lumber came down from Nakusp yesterday, and today the merchants who
are expecting to build and their
carpenters are packing it up on their
backs. Trains are scarce, so the
merchants resort to this measure to secure lumber, as the dealer cannot hold
it, even if paid in advance. Three
rafts per week will arrive from this
town time en until the demand is supplied. Mr. W. Parker, the townsite
owner, has sold over a hundred lots,
which have changed hands several
times, and at lass the buildings are
being erected on them. Speculation
in town, lots has been very profitable,
aud still continues with unabated
vigor.

At a meeting of the executive com-
mitto of the British Empire League iu
Canada the following resolutions were
adopted on the motion ot Mr. John
T. Small, seconded by Mr. J. M.
Clark: "This committee desires to
place upon record its sense of the great
loss which the cause of the league has
sustained in the sudden and lamented
death of Mr. Dalton McCarthy, Q. C,
M. P. It was through him that the
Imperial Federation league in Canada
(ofllwhich this league is the successor)
was founded, and he was its first
president. During the many years he
continued to serve as president he devoted his time and means to the
furtherance of the cause, and in the
days before the importance of the aims
of" the league had been generally realized he was ever ready at no little sacrifice to advocate its principles, both
on the. platform1' and by private work.
By his death a great void is left in
the ranks of the league, and both in
Canada and in the "United Kingdom,
where he was well known, his loss
will be long and deeply regretted.''
TO THE ELECTORS
OF THJ3 NELSON HIDING OF WEST
KOOTENAY ELECTORAL'
MSTHICT.
Gentlemen,���T offer myself as an independent candidate to represent you
in the next Provincial Parliament.
Should I be fortnflate enough to secure your support I shall endeavor to
bring about the following reforms:
(1) A change in the Mineral Act to
compel all partners in a mining claim
to bear their share of the assessment
work or forfeit their interest.
(2) An amendment to cause litigants
to put up reasonable security for costs
before adversirig applications for certificates of improvements,
(3) Regular promotion ih the Civil
Service, avoiding the injustice of the
appointment of outsiders over the
heads of men already in the service,
all vacancies being filled by our own
people.
(4) The removal from the Statute
book of the discriminatory tax of $5.00
���per annum on mechanics, miners and
otliers employed in our metalliferous
mines.
If returned I pledge myself to work
to the best of my ability to secure a
local expenditure of public monies
in proportion to the revenue collected
in the district, and to ensure such expenditure being laid out to the best
possible advantage.
The mining interests of British Columbia have now reached such proportions tliat it is desirable they sbould
be" administrated by a separate department under the charge of a minister
who would, devote his undivided attention to the subject.
I shall endeavor to''rescind1 the legislation of '96, by which mining suits
were taken out of the jurisdiction of
the County Court and relegated to the
Supreme Court, thereby entailing increased costs and interminable delays.
During the past eight years Kootenay has been represented bv straight
government supporters and by an out-
aud out oppositionist, the result ih
neither case has been satisfactory. I
consider the time has arrived when all
the Kootenay members should join in
advocating measures for the benefit of
this district as a. whole and for its
special industry, without regard to
party.
A. S. FARWELL.
"Whereas, The Turner government
by its class legislation, (1) by imposing a tax upon the output of metalli-'
ferous mines not imposed upon the
output of coal mines; (2) by refusing
to, remove the tax imposed on men
working in metalliferous mines;(3) by-
denying the people of the province
equitable representation in the legislative assembly, has proven itself unworthy of .further confidence or continuance in offite; and,
"Whereas, The railway policy of the
present administration is inimical to
the best- welfare of the province as a
whole therefore be it
'' Resolved, That the interests of the
Nelson riding of West Kootenay district, demand that the electors return
as their representative in the next
provincial legislature a man who will
not only strongly advocate but will
also uso his influence with the members of the legislative assembly opposed
to the present administration to secure
the following reforms:
"First���An equitable plan of representation in the legislative assembly on a
basis that will recognize that an elector in one portion of the province is 1
the equal of an elector in any other.
portion where like circumstances prevail.
"Second���Equalization in taxation
with respect to mines, so that if the
output of the metalliferous mines be
taxed, the output of all cpal mines
shalFbe treatedinthe same manner.-���
" Third���Repeal of the special tax
imposed upon working miners in the
metalliferous;, mines, which partakes
of the nature of a trade tax and is an
unjust exaction.
"Fourth���An amendment to the assessment act which permits what is
virtually dual taxation, under the indefensible mortgage tax, or tax upon
poverty.
"Fifth���The passage of a general
railway act, which will allow the
building of railways by bona fide railway men without cost to thc province
either in cash subsidies or laud grants.
'' Sixth���The starving out of railway
charter, mongers by refusing to grant
any further land subsidies in aid of
railway construction, and by insisting
wherever cash subsidies are granted
that such subsidies shall be by way of
loan secured by a lien upou the railways
when built.
'' Seventh���Tlie absolute prohibition
of the immigration of Chinese into the
province, and the exclusion of Chinese
from employment by any company receiving any concession whatever from
the crown.
"Eighth���That in employing labor on
public works preference be given to
citizens of the province, and also that
all government offices be filled by
capable bona fide residents of the district where the vacancies exist.
"Ninth���Due recognition of-the fact
that the mining industry is the chief
attraction for outside capital to the
province, and is responsible for the increase, in its population: that.this industry may be vitally affected by legislation, and its importance demands
that we should have in the cabinet a
practical rather than a theoretical
representative.
" And with a view to   securing   the
j above reforms, we pledge  ourselves to
j support by our votes  and influence the
nominee of this convention."

VICTORIA JOITIIS
THE    STEAM EE    JANE   GRAY
SEATTLE   DID   NOT
rOUNDEK.
OF
She Went Ashore%t Kyuquot.���The Qund-
rant Sails to the Bcscue.���Dominion
Asked to Subsidise the Teslln Lake
Railway.
Victoria, June 24.���The steamer
Willapa, from the west coast, this
afternoon brings the news that the
Seattle schooner Jane Grey is ashore
near Kyuquot. This is the schooner
which was reported to have gone down
90 miles out at sea with the loss of all
hands. The steamer Quadrant leaves
for the west coast tomorrow, and will
visit the wreck to make an examination.
At the time it was said that a few
of those on board had escaped in Major
Graham's steam launch. It seems
therefore that when the survivors saw
the Jane Grey disappear she was
simply swept over by a wave, and subsequently drifted to almost tho same
spot where the launch made the landing. The Indians who reported the
wreck have made no examination, and
could not say if any bodies were on
board.
Reports from the north say that the
Yukon is very low and that few steamers will be able to get np.
The Colonist calls upon the Dominion government to supplement the
provincial subsidy, so that as much
rail as possible may be laid between
the Stikine and Lake Teslin during
the next hundred days.
CANADIAN  PACIFIC POLICY.
to say.no regular round was contested,
although Tarrasch and Janowsky
finished their game left adjourned
from the fifteenth round on Tuesday.
The result was that Tarrasch beat
Janowsky. The seventeenth round
was played today with the following
results: Trenchard and Blackburn
drew, Janowsky defeated Wahlbrodt,
Lipke beat Marco, Halprin beat
Maroczy, and Alapin beat Schiffers.
Burn and Pillsbury and Caro and
Schlechter drew. Baird beat Schowalter. Tarrach and Tschigorin adjourned their game in a perfectly even
position.
A LEGACY FOR CARON.
To Build Up the  Northwest���Opposed
to That of the U. S. Lines.
Montreal, June 24.���D. McNicoll,
general passenger agent of the Caa-
adian Pacific railway, when asked if
the Canadian Pacific would take any
action to offset the course of the American lines in competing with the C.
P. R. in the northwest Harvest Home
excursion to the northwest by granting
cheap excursion rates to Minnesota,
, said: ��� ���'��� s ���'
"The Canadian Pacific will not pursue any such course, as such a policy
would do nothing to build up the Canadian northwest, which it is their
policy to do. The object of the Canadian Pacific giving cheap excursions
to the northwest was to attract people
who might find suitable homes. The
American roads could only quote rates
to three points in Manitoba and it
was beyond these points that people
would have to go in order to find suitable locations. It was the policy of
the American roads to get people out
there, and if possible, divert them to
Minnesota and other parts of the
United States. The Canadian Pacific
strongly objected to that policy, and it
would continue to work in tbe interests of Canada rather than that of the
United States."
NAPANEE BANK ROBBERS.
The  Detectives Are on Their Track
in Montreal.
Montreal, June 24.���Chief Detective
Carpenter and the Montreal detectives
are on a hunt for the burglars who
broke open the safe of the Pominion
bank at Napance last fall and secured
120,000, together with 1000 unsigned
Dominion bank $10 bills. Either the
burglars themselves or their confederates are in Montreal, as these notes
with a cleverly forged signature of ��E.
"IrBaihs arebeingcirculated-'througb-
out the city. The series, which are
letter  " A,'  ran from 46,010 to 47,010.
Detectives have visited nearly every
store or business house where the bills
are likely to be offered, and so far the
round-up has resulted in finding a
large number of bills. Just how
many the bank officials and detectives
will not say, but it is learned that
there are a sufficient number to warrant the belief that Montreal has
been made the headquarters of those
who are "pushing" the forged signature notes. Several banks have received large numbers of these bills.

ON THE   SAFE  SIDE.
"Doc," said the man who had approached one of the surgeons at the recruiting station, "I wish you'd examine me and see if I'm eligible for
enlistment.''
"You must file your application in
the regular way with the officer iu
charge," replied the surgeon.
"Ihaven't time to do that now,"
the stranger replied. "Why can't you
take a look at me and see what my
chances are: anyway? It's very important that I should know."
"Well, take off your coat and vest
and let me listen to yonr heart the first
thing."
The examination was very short.
"Ah," said the surgeon, after he
had listened for a moment, "there
isn't any use going on with your case.
You'll never do. Why, you might almost as well have no heart at all."
"Hurrah for war!" yelled the man
who had been rejected, as he pulled
on his coat and hurried into the street,
"War! War! War! Down with the
cowards who don't want blood!
Hurrah for the crush of matter and
the wreck of worlds!"���Cleveland
Leader.
HIS CRITICISM.
'' So you hev got an answer to the
advertisement yon pnt in a matrimonial paper for a wife?" inquired Josh
Medders with interest.
������-'Wa'al���er���h'm���yes.i'-replied-Jay-
Green rather dubiously. "I've got a
pink tinted, bergamot scented note
from a lady who describes herself as a
widow of 26, 120 pounds, 5 feet, lively
disposition, snappin' eyes, a yearn for
an indulgent husband, and so on; but
���er���ah��� "
"What's the matter with the description?"
"Wa'al, it's all accordin' to how
you look at it. The fact that she's
got snappin' eyes and a lively disposition and desires an indulgent husband
would be kinder enticin' if it wasn't
fer her claim to bavin' 5 feet. That,
together with her liveliness and the
snap of her eyes causes me to pause
and wonder if she would'nt be just a
leetle bit too much of a kicker to suit
me.' '���New York Journal.
MEN OF  THE DAY.
"On account of circumstances which
it is unnecessary to specify" is the
rather neat phrase used by the First
Lord of the Admiralty, Mr. Gosehen,
to introduce his announcement that the
British navy is again to be strengthened The circumstances, as everybody knows, are the recent large orders
for battleships for Russia and a notable increase of activity in the French
dockyards. These two powers will
have to work very hard to get ahead
of Mr. Gosehen, if he is on his mettle,
as he seems to be. In 1895 he was met
by a big foreign programme and
carried through votes for a number of
the great battleships recently completed
and shortly to be launched. Mr.
Gosehen is an example of the way in
which men of foreign Jewish ancestry
such as Disraeli and himself can rise
to the highest; places in British public
life.
His grandfather was a famous Leip
zig bookseller, and his father emigrated
to London, where he became a successful  merchant.   The  present ruler of
the Queen's navy was born in 1831,
and entering the commons as one of
the members for Loudon in 1868, came
to the front very rapidly, first as an
authority on finance and afterwards on
naval affairs. . He was firsts-lord in
Gladstone's government from' 1871 to
1874. While the liberals were in opposition Mr. Gosehen reorganized Egyptian
finances, and, it is asserted, prompted
Disraeli to buy the Suez canal shares.
He left the liberal party on the home
rule issue, and was chancellor of the
exchequer from 1887 to 1892 in the first
Salisbury government. On the reorganization of the present government he
returned to the admiralty. It ia not
at all improbable that the programme
toi be unfolded by him will be of somewhat sensational dimensions, opinion
in Great Britain being decidedly nn-
easy on naval defense in view of the
Franco-Russian alliance.

Gentlemen:���At the request of o
large proportion of the, community
representing every section of. the
Riding, I beg to announce myself as a
candidate for your suffrages in the
coming elections.
In respectfully soliciting your votes
and support I declare, myself-a supporter ano follower of the Hon. J. $��.
Turner as the Leader,of thepply Party
in this Province with a defined Roliey
and coherent existence. *
Paring my eight years residence ��� in
this District I have beep a consistent
supporter of his Party in recognition
of their attitude in meeting, and iri
eases anticipating the requirements
and expansion of this great mining
region. I am in favor of the follow-;
ing reforms:���
(I) The abolition of the Tdx upoq
working miners.
. (2) The abolition of the Mortgage
Tax.
(3) The distribution of seats in the
Legislature in direct proportion to
population.
(4) I do not approve of the Policy of
the late Legislative Assembly in using
their influence to exclude foreign railroads, such as the proposed railroad
to Boundary Creek-
(5) I favor certain revisions in Ihe
Mineral and Land Acts, particularly
some easy plan by which the holders
of claims can advertise out their defaulting co-owners.
(6) In filling all Government appointments I am in favor of appointing
bona fide residents of the District in
all cases where such can be .found
competent to act.
(7) I believe that the Provincial
Legislature should bring all tbe aid
ana influence at its command to
the assistance of the lead mining industry, especially in the direction of
obtnining stronger recognition from
the Federal Government at Ottawa of
the importance of this industry and
thc disadvantages under which it now
labors.
If you do me the honor to elect me
as  your representative I will at all
times endeavor to protect and further
tbe interests, not only  of the prospector, but also of all those employed
in and around our mines, recognizing
that our entire community is dependant upon the mining industry.
I am, Gentleman,
Your obedient servant,
