Washing-toe*, D. C, May 30.���The
military invasion of Onba baa begun,
unlssa the- orders of the War department
miscarry. At an early hour this morning the ' troops that have been gathered
at the Gulf ports began to break camp
and march aboard tbe transport ships
waiting to carry tbem to tbe enemy's
territory.' About twenty five �� df (lioie
ships, the biggest and fastest tbat eoald
be obtained for the purpose had been
gathered, ready to receive tbe troops.
Ibey vill accommodate about 30,000
men for in a short voyage like tbat from
one of tbe gulf ports to Oubn, it is possible with safety to carry a much larger
number of men aboard ship tban would
be advisable in tbe ease of a cruise to
the Philippines for instance.   .
ing? Where they took ship? Where
they are boundf are the questions wbicb
the diraoHog spirits of the campaign
refuse "positively to answer, tbey have
no, desire tbat the Spanish should have
opportunity afforded them to attack the
American soldiers when tbey Isnd.
Therefore, nothing- of tbe details of thia
Hut movement ceo be learned*} There is
a suspicion: that the start will be made
from Tamp* and Mobile and it ia probable that in suoh case tbe fleets of transports will' oonverge at Key West to pass
under the conroy of warships which
Admiral Sampson has provided to insure
the safely of the troops during tbe pas*
sag* across the Florida straitr, against
attest at the hands of some stray Spanish
cruisers or gunboats.
It is probable that there will be no
less tban four separate military expeditions and that these will be landed at
feur! different, points. ,:Wbetber -Porte
Rioo is one of these points *r not, imt.'.
not be learned. Before the entite toto*
wbiob it is proposed to use id Cuba can
be landed, tbe transports must make
four separate voyages across tbe straits.
Arrangements bave been made to utilise tbe insurgents to tbe largest possible
extent. Tbe government already bas
sent expeditions to a large number of
points on tbe island and landed arms for
the insurgents. Most of tbe parties
lieeeeded perfectly in tbeir object, and
it is said at tbe war department today
tbat a sufficient number ofthe insurgents have been armed to constitute a tary
effective support for the troops as tbey
land.-   ��� ; . '[, ���
: A war conference was held'at the
White House at three o'clock this afternoon between tbe president and bis two
secretaries Alger and Long, and .Major
General Miles, in command of.the;army.
Vice-president^Hobart was present a part,
of tbe time and Secretary Day, wbo bad
jost returned to Washington, also dropped
in during the conference. After tbe
entire situation, naval-and military,had
been gone over Secretary Long retired
and Secretary Alger and General Miles
remained to discuss, more iix detail, the
military operations about to be pnt into
exeoutioa as a result of the definite offi
cial information that the Spanish, squadron is seburely'held witbiu Santiago harbor. Naturally those who participated
in the conference observed strict silence
regarding it - (
, It was stated however'in authoritative
quarters that the discussion had covered
the entire range of naval and military
operations, particularly, with a view to
the active movement about to begin.
General Miles brought with'him a memorandum showing the *��xaot disposition
of the military forces now concentrated
at various points of the oountry, what
number of men are at Tampa aod other
southern, points of embarkation. ' He
also made known that at one o'clock this
morning immediately following the
receipt of definite information of tba
presence of the Spanish squadron' at
Santiago, be bad' gone to the war der
partment and bad- issued telegraphic
orders putting the troops' in motion and
thus starting the forward movement from
every- arm of the service*!. ��� Farther than
tbis - those attending , tbe conference
would not discuJf their plane.

EXTENSION  TO  PENTICTON.
Another and most important step
has been taken towards tlie develop-
ment of the mineral resources of
British Columbia. An announcement will be found in another
column that the contracts have been
let for the extension of the C. P. R.
to Penticton.
On the 18th inst. we were able
to. announce tbat construction on
the Robson-Penticton railway extension would .start at an early date,
and now that the contracts are
awarded, active operations may be
immediately expected.
The route as surveyed will connect with the C. & W. at Robson,
thence up the Lower Arrow lake to
Dogcreek, up this stream to McCrea
pass, thence down McCrea creek:
and. Christina lake ta Cascade City,
along;. Kettle river to Grand Forks,.
up the north fork and Brown's
creek to EhoLt pass, down Eholt
creek to Boundary creek,, through
Greenwood City, Anaconda? end

thence to Penticton. Thus it yxiU

When such an authority, himself
ap American sympathizer, speaks
thus strongly, it is impossibe toebn-
template-thfcm^
prehension, more, especially as the,
climatejwill.also, prove... no. despicable foe.
Another serious factor is that the
American; volunteers are largely
armed with die Springfield rifle and
they will find themselves at a great
disadvantage, when confronted with
the Spaniards" armed with the mod
era flat-trajectory Mauser, rifle.. In
a word, the .Americans have.no one
sided,- bloodless victories, like. that,
of Manila, before them. They will
have to fight hard* and desperately,.
if they wish to be victorious.
One of the greatest tributes of
respect ever paid to the memory of
any, Canadian statesman was when
over io,0oo of hi? fellow citizens
visited the grave of the late Dalton
McCarthy, on the.Sunday following
his burial. Mr. McCarthy was certainly one of Canada's great; men.
The railway passenger rate war
still goes merrily on, the latest road
to enter into the fight being the
Southern Pacific The Canadian
Pacific-has met every cut of ita
American rivals, and, so far, appears to be holding its own. The
last monthly statements of both the
C. P. R. and the Grand Trunk,
Canada's two? principal railways
show greatly increased receipts, over
the same period last year;
THP CUBAN  INVASION*
Our despatches announce this
morning that-the American army
which his <been encamped for the
last few weeks ait Chkkamatiga
have received orders for. the front,
and will be sent- across the straits
to Cuba at dried This movement
is a most important developmentJ iti
the wari; and is one which willi>rftig
home to the American people the
serious nature of the contest in
which--they are engaged. Seventy-
five per cent ofthe American troopy
are raw and practically undisciplined levies, and brave men' though
they'be individually, it will probably tax their powers tb-the^uttermeis^
tocope successfully with the trained'
Spanish troops.
No less an authority than Lord
Wolseley, commander-in-chief of the
British army, said recently ^ The
United States would make a mistake in attempting to invade Cuba
with volunteers who are not fully
drilled and disciplined. If that was
done, the United States-might1- expect-: heavy reverses when- those
troops- encountered' thev trained
Spanish troops on land * * * It

which no well appointed

during the warm weather.
Mr. Mackenzie and Miss Glover
made their flrst public appearance in
Nelson last night, at the Salvation
Army;hall, under the auspices of the
ladies of the Presbyterian church, before a large audience, and afforded
their hearers a most enjoyable even"
ing.
Mr. Mackenzie is the fortunate
possessor of. a powerful baritone of
exceptional compass which he manages
to perfection, while his histrionic
powers stamphim as a thoughtful and
cultured actor. ''A-
Miss ..Glover, a young lady of extremely prepossessing appearance,
owns- a charming soprano, nnd i ie-at
the same time a powerful and graceful
actress, being equally ab home in the
role of a tragedienne or in light
comedy.
The programme, which was varied
in its character; and enthusiastically
received throughout, opened with a
piano solo; tastefully played hy Miss
Wilson, who accompanied the singers
throughout with taste aad;accuracy.
"The raft" a fine descriptive song
was then most'acceptably rendered by
Mr. Mackenzie. The next item on the
programme was a recitation by Mass
Glover, entitled "Mary Queen- of-
Scots." Tne Murder of Rizzio, the
Queens secretary, and the execution
of the Queen herself were perhaps the
finest scene* in a magnificent dramatic
effort. Mr. Mackenae followed with
several most amusing anecdotes and
sketches: illustrative of dry Scotch wit,
and told in his own inimitable manner
Owing to leek of apace we can but
���Unde to many of the items that follow.
" The Marsh of tbe Caraaron men" wan
spiritedly song by Mr. Mackenzie, wbo
gave the "LairJ o'Cockpen" aa an eo-
pore. > "Jeeloea Peterkin Paep" an amns
ingreoitltion biyJMiw. Oitom, followed.
We were tbeu treated to tlie duet "Tbf
Crooked Bawbee," and the -duet. "Hunt-
inftow^" given aa ao eoooreiriMie^mllX
well received. Mt Ma#kenwe followed i
with more ol his whitaaotel iketfkes and:
the flrst part of the programme closed i
witb an intensely drained rendering, a(
tbe ������Potion Scene" from "Romeo and
JoUet."

T. G. Proctor i-eturned on Saturday
from a trip through East Kootenay,
and report* business brisk in Fort
Steele and Moyie City, and in the
inining community gen-avail?.
The North Star mine has several
thousand tons of. ore reedy for shipment at tbe North Star; landing above
Fort Steele, and the Lake Shore and:
St. Eugene' mines near \ Moyie City
are ready to ship as; soon as the wul-
road gets ini Ifo Proctor states that
in the copper belt extending from the
Bull river-and' Sand creek district to
the Tobacco plains,, numerous large
and well defined ledges of low grade
copperoreare to be found, which, with
the coming advantages of cheap trans*
portation and supplies will be largely
and profitably worked, in the near
future;' The country- ie an-open one
and easy to prospectr-*. horse can' be
taken anywhere���while roads can be
easily and cheaply constructed.
There are two fine: boats pying on the
Kootenay river between Fort Steele
and Jennings, on the other side of the
international border line.
