j ships. A strict censorship is maintained at Madrid and any movement
of their ships would not be given out.
The report is regarded as a Spanish
ruse to attract this government s attention, from- -tne real course- of -the
fleet. Naval experts do not believe
it was possible for the fleet to get into
Santiago without the knowledge of the
scouts and such a movement would be
immediately communicated to Washf
ington.

Key West, May 20.���The meeting of
the two great hostile fleets is the pivot
upon. which the situation now turns
and that, a few days, perhaps hours,
will bring them together, is the universal view here, at the base of operations. This view is confirmed by the
news that Admiral Cervera's squa ron
has reached Santiago de Cuba.
The intelligence which came today,
does not affect the situation, but.it
was a singular coincidence that the
activity among the United States
ships was possibly heightened and the
work of coaling and provisioning these
in the harbor was.rushed with more
than usual haste.
The ships were surreptitiously creeping toward the open sea as the day
waned and the ranks of naval men
ashore were constantly thianing until
at dusk there was scarcely one to be
seen.
I ready   nicknamed thc   "circumstantial
! cabinet."
Tbe premier, Senor Sagasta, explained
the ministerial crisis and asserted that
the new ministry would continue io tbe
policy of tbe former ministry. He related bow "Spain did everything to avoid
war, until America, violating all recognized diplomacy, attacked Spain witb an
injustice unprecedented in tbe annals of
civilized history and compelled her to
respond to war with war, whioh Spain
would continue to tbe utmost until an
honorable peace is obtainable." Tbis
the premier continued "is a strong policy
and the new government will ako energetically conduct negotiations with
European and otber Stales." -
Count Pcravemario proposed the senate's congratulation to Admiral Cervera
on his arrival at Santiago de Cuba and
his clever dodging of tbe American
squadrons. Capt. Annon, minister of
murine responded in tbe name of the
navy, highly extolling Admiral Cervera.
In so doing be said tbe arrival of the
Spanish squadron in Cuban waters would
cement tbe friendship of the Cubans and
Spain and wiil prove to tbe world tbat
Spain will never abandon Cuba while the
mother country retains her vitality."
The congratulations were voted unanimously. A Spanish official, speaking of
the engagement said to bave taken place
off Santiago de Cuba yesterday, previous
to the arrival of tbe Spanish fleet saye,
tbe American - warships were repulsed
and somo of tbem were damaged.

hults of the war cannot be doubtful.

Leive will only increase its determin-
lon to persist. The intervention of

Ination unalterable, and if European
[nplications bring on a European

|��t ourselves and Germany, will find

fjhe Spectator discussing the Span-
crisis, says:���' ��� The plain truth of
matter is that if Senor Sagasta
buld fail to protect Cuba or to in-
Ice some of the continental power to
|:iture upon active intervention, he
Rl be superseded by a military die-
[orship or a revolutionary-Junta."
j ferring to Mr. Chamberlain's advo-
\y of an Anglo-Saxon alliance, the
sctator declares : " We would wel-
ine anything in the direction of
engthening the Anglo-Saxon race,
of security merely for Americans
ll English, but as a security that the
lit tendencies in social and political
\i will be given full play."
A SPANISH RUSE.
London, May 21.���The Daily News
directs attention to the great secrecy
preserved about what is . happening at
the Canaries, where the cables have
been seized and the news censorship is
severe, It says: "The question now
arises whether the reserve squadron
from Cadiz is not already half way
across the Atlantic. One thing seems
clear 5 the Spanish strategists have a
pre-arranged plan of operation while
the Americans have been forced by
circumstances into a defensive attitude. ^However it oughtrn^^
difficult for Admiral Sampson to find
Cervera. Thus it is possible tbere
may be a big fight within a few days."

St. Johns, Nfd., May 20.���The government is taking steps to prevent the
Spanish Cadiz squadron from getting
ooal in Newfoundland waters and will at
once dispatch tbe colonial revenne cruiser
Frona to patrol the south coast and re*
port the presence of strange shipping.
Tbe British warships are also preparing to visit there.
The French brigantine Dilnne from
Sydney to Si Pierre, with n cargo of
ooal has been lost, with all hands, off
Point Platte, Miquelon islands. The
body of one of the crew was found on tbe
rocks and a stern board bearing the
name of the vessel was picked up in the
same locality.
SPANIARDS   EASILY   PLEASED.
Havana, Mey 20, via Ver* Cruz.���Tbe
weight of tbe blockade is seriously felt
here: business is almost at a standstill,
and there is hardly any movement in tbe
streets, which bave a sort of holiday appearance. Tbe parks are almost deserted, and there were very few people to
be seen last week on the Plaza de Carinas
at night, although the band played there
and everything possible was done to keep
up tbe spirits of tbe people. There are
many families without means, striving to
emigrate.   Many are trying to borrow
money from more fortunate people, in
order to be able to pay their passage
money.   There is considerable   feeling
against tbe men who are desirous of leaving tbe city, and posted on the corners of
the houses all over the town one may see
such notices as tbe following: " Here:
are sold women's sliirtrfbrtb��nto��irwhb'
are abandoning the Island of Cuba.*"
There are thousands of men from the cigar, tobacco and other factories, out of
work, and the authorities are employing
as many of them as possible on the fortifications,     Tbe wharves   are  entirely
cleared of merchandise, and there idle
people congregate and enjoy the-fresh
air while talking over  tbe  war.   Tbe
matter of feeding so many idle men
causes the authorities considerable anxiety.   Wben these men feel tbe pangs of
hunger, rioting is sure to follow.   Then
too, the people here are looking forward
with apprehension for the war to eventuate in the triumph of tbe insurgents.
It is believed that tbey will wreak a terrible vengeance upon tbe Spaniards aod
their sympathizers.   The  bulk  ot   tbe
Spaniards, however, are filled with warlike enthusiasm, and are looking forward
with confidence to the eventual triumph
of Spain over the American forces. They
have great faith in the strength of the
Spanish fleet and the valor of lhe Spanish sailors, and are looking forward hopefully to the blockade being raised by a
naval force Bent from Spain.
SPANISH CABINET MEETS.
London, Mav 21;���Admiral Cervera's
manoeuvre excites the keenest speculation here. In some quarters the whole
story is regarded as a ruse designed to
hurry up,..the .Spanish.government.and
the.spreading ot it broadcast is supposed
to be somo sinister move. The bulk of
opinion however regards. tbe news as
authentic and is inclined to tbe belief
that Admiral Cervera well knows tbat
reinforcements are at hand, otherwise he
would not have risked being bottled up
at Santiago.
RUSSIAN  HOSTILITY
To Possession of tbe Philippines by either
the United States or Great Britain.
St. Petersburg, May 20.���The public
and tbe press here are evincing great
interest in the future of the Philippine
Islands. Much hostility is mauifested
towards any scheme by which the United
States or Great Britain should attempt
individually or jointly to retain possession of the Islands, and some of tbe newspapers urge the Russian government to
endeavor to obtain from Spain a lease of
some of tbe Philippines, in order that
they may serve as a Russian food supply
in the Pacific.
AMERICANS^OUT-MANCEUVERED
The
Spaniards well Pleased with Admiral Cervara's Manoeuvres.
London, May 20.���The Madrid correspondent of the Standard says: "The
success of Admiral Cervera in avoiding
the American fleets and keeping them on
tbe alert excites much enthusiasm, and
causes the press to clamor for a prompt
despatch of the reserve fleet to the front.
Senor Sagasta will make a statement of
London May 21���The Madrid correspondent of the Daily News says: "Admiral Cervera has given the, slip to the
two powerful fleets that have been scouting the ocean for a fortnight in an endeavor to catch him- Admiral Cervera
with four cruisers and a few torpedo destroyers, alone in the Atlantic, ignoring events in Cuba and in Porto-Rico
and the position of the American squadron has out maneeuvered, disorganized
and dispersed the latter, making the
Americans believe they were threatened
on "very side.
SPAIN'S QUEEN IS PLEASED.
London, May 20.���The eulogies on Mr.
Gladstone formedSan historic, episode in
tbe  House of  Commons today.   There
were more members -assembled iu the
House than upon any occasion since the
day wben Mr. Gladstone himself-introduced tbe Home Rule bill.   They filled
every seat, clustered on the steps of the
speaker's dais, and the peers! gallery was
crowded with the foremost members of
the House of Lords.   TbeJOnited States
ambassador, Col. Jobn Hay, and all the
members of his staff were among the
diplomats   preaent.   Atter prayers,  the
House silently awaited Mr. Balfour for a
quarter of an bout, and wben be arose all
heads were bared.   Mr. Balfour's speech
was r&markably eloquent and displayed
gieat good taste, while Sir William Ver-
nou  Harcourt's enconinms oa his dead
leader were delivered in a most glowing
j-tyle.   Tbe Liberal leader's voice broke
thrice with emotion, and he was com- ',
pelled to pause and wipe bis eyes. Mr. >*,
Dillon was in bis most oratorical style"
wben he described how Mr. Gladstone's
sympathies were unbounded by nationality, and embraced tbe oppressed of all
races. The Irish benches responded
with murmurs of assent.
In the House of Lords there was a fall
attendance of members.   The Marquis of
Salisbury spoke feelingly of Mr. Glad
���tone, who, be said, " was ever guided in
all hi3 efforts by a lofty moral ideal."
Continuing, tbe premier said : " Tbe deceased will be remembered not so muoh
for his political work as for the great example, hardly paralleled in history, ot
the great Christian  statesman."    The
Earl of Kimberley, the Liberal leader,
followed with a touching tribute, and the
Duke of Devonshire expressed bis generous appreciation of Mr. Gladstone's services in behalf of the Liberal Unionists,
saying that  tbeir severance  from Mr,
Gladstone was a most painful incident,
but, he added, h&oould *' recall no word
from Gladstone which added unnecessary
bitterness to the situation."~The"Earrofy��
Rosebery delivered an eloquent panegyric on tbe dead statesman.
London, May 20.���It is now virtually
decided that Mr. Gladstone's remains
shall be interred in Westminster Abbey.
The associated press learns tbat the family do not oppose the nation's desire, and
that the only direction he left was tbat
be should be buried at Hawarden, unless
there was an unmistakable national wish
for an interment at. the Abbey. Mrs.
Gladstone's only objection is the natural
wish to be buried in the same grave devoted to ber husband, aud it is rumored
that arrangements are in contemplation1
whereby tbis feeling need not prove an
insuperable obstacle to the burial in
Westminster Abbey. Mr. Herbert Gladstone is coming to London to arrange
the matter.

on board this steamer that Lieut.-Col.
Cortijo, 'Weyler's brother-in-law, was captured with other Spanish soldiers, now
prisoners of war in Fort McPherson

London, May 20.���Queen Victoria's
message to Miss Helen Gladstone was as
follows: " I am deeply grieved at the sad
news. Princess Beatrice and I wish to
express our deepest sympathy with your
dear mother and. all .'of yon. (Signed)

SATURDAY   MORNING,   MAY   21,
supremacy of the Anglo-Saxon race
is threatened by a combination of
alien races, past dissensions should
be forgotten, and'an unbroken'front
presented to the enemy. As admirably expressed by Sir Charles Tupper in the Canadian House of Commons: "The interests of peace, of
civilization and the best interests of
the world will be promoted by the
most cordial co-operation between
the two branch nations of the Anglo
Saxon race."
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The reliability of much of the war
news received may well be questioned,coming as it does from Spanish sources. It is certain, however,
that both fleets are in West Indian
waters and may come together at
any time. One of the greatest naval battles of modern times may be
expected within the next few days.
CANADIAN SYMPATHY.
The British Empire has always
been an asylum for refugees under
any circumstances, The pages of
history contain many instances of
dethroned and fugitive monarchs of
European states seeking refuge on
British soil. In the days of slavery
many a hunted slave made for the
Canadian shore, assured that when
once he got beneath the Union Jack
his ruthless pursuers had no power
to compel him to return. In every
part of the world the protection of
the British flag has never been
denied to the oppressed. While
this is true, the hospitality extended
has often been abused. At the outbreak of the present war, the
Spanish ambassador at Washington
Senor Polo Y. Bernabe, crossed into Canada and took up his residence
in Toronto. So long as he was
content to obey the laws of the
country, and live peaceably, there
Svas no objection to his remaining
as long as he wished. It now turns
out that he is using his position in
Canada as an office of war, and is
���watching   the   operations   of  the
' United States war department at
short range. If the telegraphic
despatches are to be relied upon, he
has recently arranged for a Spanish
coaling station on the French island
of St. Pierre, off the south coast of
Newfoundland. The matter was
brought up in the Dominion House
of Parliament on Wednesday and in
reply tb a question by Mr. Charlton,
Sir Wilfrid Laurier stated that it
had not as yet been brought to the
attention of the government and
that until it was v the government
���did not conceive^ it was in any way
bound to take notice of his presence
here.
There is no doubt of the trend of
Canadian  sympathy  in the present
; crisis. The interests ofthe United
States and Canada are so closely
allied in many respects that the
boundary line between the two
countries is only imaginary. The
people of the United States are one
with us in language, sentiment and
the character of their institutions.
Both are branches of the great
English speaking family of nations
and are sprung from the same
Anglo-Saxon stock. In the war
now being waged, although Canada
is bound to be neutral and must be
neutral, there is a strong feeling of
sympathy for those who are our
neighbors and who share the continent with us. This sentiment has
found active expression in the offer
of Lieutenant Colonel Baynes to
furnish a full regiment of trained
Canadian-American soldiers, who
desire service in the Phillippines
under General Merritt.
The United States has not always
treated Canada in a liberal spirit in
the matter of tariffs, and other questions affecting the trade relations
between the two countries, but in
times like  the  present  when   the
The death of Hon W. E. Glad
stone has called forth expressions of
sympathy from every nation in the
civilized world. Throughout the
British Empire the deepest manifestations of grief are seen, and the* action of the Imperial Parliament in
requesting that the remains be interred in Westminster Abbey,
among England's illustrious dead,
meets with general approval. England has produced many great men
but none greater than the man
whose long and active career has
just closed at Hawarden.

Ymir, May 20���(Special).���The people
ot Ymir are spreading themselves for the
grand celebration of tbe Queen's birthday
on the 24th. An extensive programme
of sports bas been arranged by tbe eon*
mittee, and some good parses bave been
arranged. The Nelson A Fort Sheppard
railway have quoted a fare of 1J-5 for
tbe round trip from aU points between
Nelson and Marcos. Arrangement* bare
been made witb two pipers from Nelson,
so we will have music galore. A large
crowd is expected from Nelson, Boss*
land, Northport and other points. Tbe
main sports of the day will be tbe drilling
contest, horse races, foot raws, prospectors* race -with 60 pounds, etc. etc.
Ore oars and steel rails for tbe tramway
to be erected for tbe Tamarao mines were
received here last night, and are being
unloaded today and transported to the
mine. ' Tbe rails for the Dundee tramway
were also received. This tramway is
about ready for the rails to be laid, and
tben work-on tbeS0*ton concentrator will
be commenced.
Xt is not a very uncommon thing for
one or two hundred of- bur citizens to
gather on first avenue each evening and
watch a horse race or a foot race. Thia
shows that Ymir baa a crowd who are
fond of sport.
Building still continues here, and there
are at tbe present time three or four new
business blocks going up, and the Mikbr
correspondent is informed: that all the
buildings were rented before the foundations were laid.
Ymir has alwaya been able to boast of
the best water in Kootenay, but in a few
days we suppose our Citizens will boycott
the water and take to beer, as a large
brewery is being erected on Second
avenue.
A one-fourth interest in the Ollie was
sold to J. P. Rogers, of St. Mary's, Ont.,
the first of the week. This property was
formerly owned by T.G. Mills, of Nelson,
and others. The deal was a otah transaction.
Mr. Mountain, of Nelson, Chief of
Provincial Polios; is here today. -He is
well pleased with Ymir.

DIXI'S CHIT CHAT 1
There are no greater appreciators of
the city improvements than the
women of Nelson and neither mayor,
aldermen nor contractors are aware of
the caref al scrutiny to which the public works are given, nor the amount of
conversation which they cause among
the sex whose ideas and opinions upon
them are never taken into consideration even if they are at times, given a
passing thought. From the opening
of Ward street, the clearing up of the
park, the grading of Water street, the
improving of Baker street and,���hut
Stanley street is only half completed,
let me say the lesser work being done
on less frequented thoroughfares, the
women haye been cognizant of it all;
have been inspectors of public works
so to speak, such an interest, and
pleasure too, have they taken in it all.
New homes are being built, lots and
lots of them, small ones mostly and
not of artistic architecture, many of
them, in fact, to serve for kitchen
quarters of a more pretentious dwelling in the future, but still they are
homes with green grass in front and
gardens dug up and seeded behind,
and where homes are made people
have come to stay. Bents have been
high, as everything is, where the demand is greater than the supply, but
building is not expensive and lots have
never called for boom prices, so that
the man with a sure income can, with
advantage, buy his lot and put up his
own dwelling, and the women are
helping him. '���
Since the green has chased the snow
away to the mountain tops and the
great, grey, gloomy boulders have
been covered up with soft moss and
grasses, Nelson has become a very
beautiftil spot to the strangers, who
came only in time to see thegreyness
of ^fall followed by the whiteness of
winter, and who inwardly rebelled at
the loftiy enclosures that shut them
from the rest of the world; but just a
little pre tt in ess, a gleam of brightness,
and we forget that the walls were ever
anything but beautiful. But, tell me,
where are the wild flowers ? Beyond
those brilliant yellow cabbages (I
think they are called,) with Johnnie
Jumpuppy formed leaves, I have not
seen one single wild flower; not a little hepatica nor a wood violet, nor an
arbutus, nor even the plant of a columbine or a delicate fern. Surely, where
so much water is and such cosy nooks
for hiding places there must be blossoms. "Across theinver," some one
told me, "are tobefonnd lovely yellow lilies like little bells," but perhaps
it is too early for them yet. The river
itself is a lovely creation, it takes such
endless shades of green and ripples
and dances with merry white-caps,
when, suddenly, as calm as a mirror,
it reflects every individual tuft and
tree from the opposite bank, and then
in tones of grey or sunny yellow it
shows how the clouds are moving
above. And the beauty of it is, that
it can be seen from every part of tbe
town���the farther away from its*
banks, the wider the view.
J have not yet learned what conditions of climate are treasonable in the
-Kootenaysrnor what* freaksof^nature
are never to be mentioned. In Manitoba, a newspaper writer never speaks
of the cold, (excepting to say that it
cannot be felt,) nor, should a cyclone,
an August frost or a cloud of grasshoppers swoop over the prairie, such
facts will never be commented upon
by the press���that is " writing against
the country," therefore treason. In
Southern California and Texas it is
"never hot" according to the daily
papers, though one may be par-boiling
in the garden or literally melting over
a preserving kettle on the kitchen
stove, wheu the mercury has run right
up to its highest point and can get no
farther, and only humans have to in-
dure the excess of fever or blood heats
���hades heat likely, only not so registered, yet, write a column for a paper
and date to say the air is anything but
laden with the perfume of orange
blossoms and fanned by cool ocean
breezes and your copy is thrown out,
your place on the staff taken by
another and you, yourself told in
scathing tones that " such rot is treasonable" and no paper would be guilty
of publishing it. It simply means we
want to colonize our province, our
state, we want people with money to
come in and spend it, we want only
the bright, the fair side to be known,
but it is to be hoped the Kootenays
will never, adopt such a policy, the
down right truth, or up right���as the
case may be, is always best. So -far,
I've seen nor felt nothing to hide.
November is ever a gloomy month, be
where you may. March is^a tiresome,
changeable creature,   but the winter
with its steady sleighing and bright
sunshiny days were refreshing and delightful ; no double windows, no great
bundling up, and no heart-sinking
coal bills. Summer may be warm, but
surely not so for month in and month
out, and with the water and the woods
and an absolute dearth of mosquitoes,
a few days' heat with cool evenings
cannot cause any great discomfort.
