Havana, June 1.���(from a Spanish correspondent).���-Admiral Cervera, it is reported bere, was not at Santiago deCuba
. yegterdjay^uriog the bombardment by
the American squadron. Had he been
tbere the Spanish warships would have
entered the contest with the Americans,
confident of a victorious exit. The Spanish troops have orders to make an energetic, a slight, or, no resistance, according
to circumstances, with a view of facilitating tbe landing of American forcer-, so
tbat tbe latter may go into the interior bf
tbe country, where the Spanish are confident they will defeat them. The Spanish army .and navy are auxious to cross

present itself.
TROOPS FOR PHILIPPINES.
New York, June 1.���Advices from
Gisto in Portugal say that tbe Spaniards
are sending troops from all the provinces
to Cadiz and Algecinies. The intention
is said to be to dispatch these soldiers to
the Phillippioes as soon as a'squadron is
ready to convey them. But it appears
no squadron can be dispatched for a
week or more, as all the'warships are
short of ammunition and some of them
have not even mounted their guns.

Madrid, June 1.���In the Senate today
Count Casa Valencia asked, "if the news
of the American repulse at Santiago de
Cuba was official." The Minister of
Marines Captain Aunon replied affirmatively, adding, "the news is a good
augury for further victories which the
courage and high merit of our sailors
give reason to hope for." The senate

the trade relations existing between

the subject of discussion for readjustment between the officials of the respective governments of these -countries and
provinces and whereas it is desirable that
these relations be placed upon a basis of
mutual interchange of traffic under
closer and more harmonious relations,
and whereas the tendency of the time is
toward the establishment of sucb relations for mutual advantage, therefore be

United States and proper officials ofthe
state department having this subject
under consideration to do all in their
power to forward the readjustment ofthe

and directors of this association to do all
within their power to further the object

when the first round of the tournament
Madrid, June 1.���There was a long
procession at the Bank of Spain during,
tbe day. All classes of people were represented, and manyjwomen were in line
waiting tbeir turn to change notes into
silver, fearing the notes would be shortly subjected to a discount.
INVASION   OF   CUBA.
New York, June 2.���A special to tbe
Herald from Washington says: "Not
until the army of 100,000 men are thoroughly organized, drilled and equipped
will the. main invasion of Cuba take
place. This is President McKinley's decision, after carefully considering all the
condition?, and difficulties which the
army would encounter in attacking
Spain's stronghold at Havana. Wheu
this army will start is a question which
has not yet been decided, but the report
of General Miles, when he returns from
his present tour of inspection, may
throw much light on the subject. It ia
fully realized by the administration that
the making of an effective army of 100,000
men cannot be accomplished in a
month, even if a considerable proportion
of the men have seen some training in
thc national guards.
New York, June 1.���A despatch to tbe
tbe World, from Port Antonio, Jamaica,
say b:
"The first engagement between Commodore Schley's .squadron and tbe ships
of Admiial Cervera took place pn Sunday about midnight. Two torpedo
boats mode a desperate effort to destroy
the American ships. Tbey were etopped
in tbe nick ot time, owing to tbe vigilance
of the men under Captain Philips of the
Texaii. " '���'""" *"* '"''' ;'���", "...V'-"""
Tbe torpedo boats bad cleared (be harbor and were creeping along, in tbe
shadow of Castle Morro and tbe mountain at tbe eutranee of tbe harbor. Tbey
bad travelled two miles to tbe westward
wben tbe officer ou tbe deck of the Texas
sighted tbem through bis night glasses.
Two searchlights of tbe Texas were turned
on tbem and- tbe next iustant, men wbo
bad been sleeping at tbe loaded guns
were aroused and placed at work.
Tbe flagship's lights told tbe Spaniards
that they were discovered and tbey made
a quick rush with full speed on, towards
the Brooklyn and tbe Texas. Before
tbeir bows swung around tbe crews mar*
niog the port batteries of tbe Texas were
pumping steel at tbem. Tbe rapid firing
guns were also used. The din of the
guns of. tbe Texas alarmed tbe whole
fleet The machine guns of the Brooklyn, at work a tew seconds after tbe
Texas, started other ships lying further
off the shore. Tbe call to general qtfar*
ters sounded on each of .tbem in tbe
belief tbat all Cervera's fleet were coming out in a desperate effort to escape.
Tbe searchlights .were placed on the
waters by all the ships.
The Texas and Brooklyn poured sucb
a furious shower of small shells at tbe
torpedo boats, tbat the latter were
forced to turn about and seek safety in
the harbor.
Wbat damage was sustained is unknown. The torpedo boats took shelter
under tbe forts and no attempt to pursne
them was made. It is thought tbat
neither were struck,is tbey retiredquickly,
and tbey made small targets in tbe uncertain light The Spaniards got within
5,000 yards of the Texas. The greet
vigilance at night by the American fleet
will prevent just such attacks as that
Schley's ships made an examination of
the batteries and the channel, revealing
much stronger guns and mines tban were
supposed to exist. Four rows of mines
are laid accros�� the narrow entrance to
the harbor. JEarly this morning the
Marblehead ventured within two miles
ofthe harbor and positively recognized
the cruiser Cristobal Colon, a cruiser of
the Vizcaya type and tbe dismantled
cruiser  Reina   Mercedes, upon   which
guns were'' mounted, making ��� ber a Abating, fort. This leaves only two ships of
tbe Cape-Verde squadron unaccounted
for. All tbe ship* were originally in snob
a position in the harbor tbat they could
not be seen from the outside, but on the
appearance of the- American warships-
j tbey betrayed tlieir presence by moving
across the entrance to sweep it witb their
broadsides.
New York, June 1.���A Journal de��*
patch from Cape Haytien; purporting
to give details of tbe Santiago flgbt
soya: "The torpedo boat Porter arrived at Mole St. Nicholas, with despatches for Washington. It left im*
mediately, but before going to 'sea left
the following story of the flgbt with
the. Journal correspondent,
" Tbe American squadron augmented
by tbe torpedo boat Porter, the auxiliary cruiser St. Paul and the protected
cruiser New Orleans; approached -the
batteries, which at first, answered .the
fire of the American squadron in' a
lively manner. After twenty-minutes
firing, directed'in a superior manlier'
on the part of ther American fleet, the
Spauish batteries began to' weaken -in
their fl:*. The. Ainericmi-^arshipa
concentrated a violent fire upon Morro
castle, destroying it completely. The
forts at Socapa nnd Punta Gorda fired
the last shots,' The Spanish losses
must have been considerable. Details
are lacking of tbe American losses.
The Spaniards pretended to have
struck American vessels several times.
.v<ty'
Port au Prince, June 1.���Additional
details were received from Spanish sources
Havana, of the engagement reported off
Santiago de Cuba yesterday. Tbe
American fleet entered the harbor - of
Santiago about 12.80 p. in., tbe Iowa
leading. Inside the entrance of tbe harbor tbe warships of Cervera's fleet were
seen, cleared for action. As the American' fleet drew near, the New Orleans
detached from the main body, and stole
forward abead of the Iowa; Texas and
Massachusetts. One .of the forU opened
fire on her, the other three ships directing their fire.on the. battery on Punta
Gorda, and on a Spanish ship-which
occupied a westward; position within the
harbor. The latter replied to the fire,
and immediately became a target for the
American, ships. She retired behind a ;
protecting headland, nnd was not seen -
again during the engagement
Thc Iowa, Massachussetts, Texas and
New Orleans kept up a terrific fire
against forts Morro, Socapa and Punta
Gorda for two (hours, their enormous
projectiles doing tremendous damage to
the defences of tbe harbor. Tbe masonry
on Socapa and Morro was battered
almost into dust, and the forms fit Span- -
ish artillerymen and infantry could.be
plainly, seen flyioc for safety behind the-
neighboring bills, An auxiliary cruiser,

SPLENDID ISOLATION.
Por years it has beeiithe custom
of other European nations to cry
out against what has been termed
England's policy of ..* (splendid isolation." The querulous cries of
France, the growls of Germany and
the mutterings of Russia have incessantly testified to Europe's disgust at the attitude of Great Britain,
Condemning in. the same breath
her folly in thinking she can stand
alone* and selfishness in declining
to burn her fingers in pulling ches-
nuts out ot the fire for unreliable
allies.
The real reason of all this is that
Europe recognizes that while Eng'
land is mistress of the seas, she
holds the key to the situation, and
the unsprupulous. .Resigns of. some
ofthe more ambitious .powers can-
, f       ^       *       t  *   ~r     IZ* * **   i*       -*
f��ot be carried out* when, .-England's
might may at any mpment^.be cafct'
into the scales against them.
Now for the first time, for.- many
years England shows signs of
emerging from her solitary, position*
and of extending the hand pt friend-
phip and alliance to the United
States. Can we wonder at, the
screams of hysterical, indignation
lhat have gone up from att the cap*
itals of Europe? That alliance
which has been coveted and courted
hy every nation of Europe., in turn;-
is apparently abouttobe volunt^riiy
offered tor the United States���.1
country whbm the'Powers 'have
always rather ignored than; bther
wise, and whose' Institutions .and
principles are*; * lik*r England, ^: a
standing reproof toihe rest' .of ;tlie-
world. '-'��� '"
No wonder they rage aiid storm'
and ' cast apprabrious epithets at
^'perfidious Albion" arid the no less
execrable United States; - they acknowledge in their hearts that
against the united Anglo-Saxon
race, they are powerless, 1 and they
���fcnashtheirteetUatthethoughtthatin
the hi east and elsewhere they will
not be able to divide the spoils t\a
they list
Many years -ago England- faced
all Europe in arms for nigh a quarter of a century,' and at the field of
Waterloo brought her last antagonist to her knees. Now England is
stronger than' ever and is supported
hy powerful colonies, and if we read
the signs of the times aright, may
aoorr count On a determined illy,
and Europe trembles, arid trembles
rightly, at the thought of the repetition of former, catastrophes.
The Provincial government last
week sent instructions to its agent
at Glenora to hurry work upon the
-trail to Lake Teslin as fast as possible,: \yithput.regard to what Mackenzie, Mann & Co. were doing.
Our-New .York: despatches announce that bar silver has risen to
58^2 cents per ounce, the highest
price attained this year. Silver has
been ..rising, steadily lately which is
probably indirectly due to the war.
The Spanish mint is reported to be
Coining half a million pesetas daily,
and this of course necessitates large
purchases ��� of silver bullion. The
probability is that silver will continue
to rise while the war goes on, and
if this proves to be the case "there
is a.' good time coming" for the
Kootenay mine owners.
The remarkable change of sentiment in the United States toward
the British Empire, which has been
the most conspicious ancl possibly
the most important ancl potential
outcome of the Hispano-American
war to date, was very much in evidence on the Queen's Birthday, and
while many profess to be sceptical
of the thorough genuineness and
disinterestedness of the professions
of affection and regard now being
so loudly indulged in, it siurely be
comes the Canadian people to
accept the manifestations in all good
faith.
THE  ELECTRIC   LIGHT BY-LA.W
A Miner representative called ou John
A. Turner, secretary of the Board of
Trade, 'and other citizens with a view to
ascertaining their views on the subject.
Mr. Turner heartily endorses the action
of; the city council and considers that it
will prove a valuable investment for the
eity, while the price asked does not seem
to bim excessive for such an important
franchise.
Mr. H. J; Evans approves thoroughly of
the acquisition ot the franchises by the
eity, but declined to express any opinion
on the question of price, as he had not
been able to go into tbe figures in any
way.
: Mr. H. Seluus considered it an outrage
that, the tax payers should be asked to
sanction the expenditure of such a sum
without having the books of tbe Electric
Light Co. audited, or at least an iodepen-
d&f vainer appointed.
^ Other opinions are unavoidably held
oyer, until tomorrow.

i Victoria, Jane 1.���The schooner Jane
Gray, whioh sailed from Seattle for
KoUsobue Sound, Alaska, on the 19lb of
May, foundered, when 90 miles west of
Cape Flattery, at 2 > look on the morning of May 22nd, "while lying to. in a
moderate gale. Most ofthe passengers
were bound to the gold fields. .Twenty-���*
���even out of the sixty-one passengers,
and crew arrived here this morning on
tbe railing schooner Favorite. The survivors put off from tbe sinking schooner
in the launch Kennerma belonging to
Major E. 6. Ingraham's party, and managed to reach Kyoquot, au Indian village
on tbe west coast of Vancouver island,
about 200 miles north of tbe straits, and
80 miles from the scene of tbe disaster.
They landed at Kynquot on tbe morning

���-BALKAN   COMPLICATIONS.
DETAILS OF THE BATTLE.
Continued from First Page,
the battle took place was hit by the sheila
from the forte, and it is'thought has been
seriously damaged. The Spanish guns
threw projectiles toward the fleet, but
they fell harmlessly into the sea. The
number killed and wounded on the Spanish side was, no doubt, enormous, for
time and again shells hit the batteries
squarely, and amid the flying masonry
and dismantled guna, forms of men were
discerned. The damage done to the
American fleet cannot be learned but it is
not thought any person waa killed, if
indeed, there was anyone wounded.
Trouble Brewing Among the Kingdoms
of tbe Balkan Peninsula.
London, June 1.���The Vienna correspondent ot the Times confirms the alarming report, telegraphed yesterday by the
Vienna correspondent of the Daily Tele-.
flraph, with reference to complications in
tbe Balkans. ��� He says: " Servia would
���eareely be able to hold her own in tbe
btnni ot a ecrimmage for territorial expansion, yet nothing can be more doubtful tban ber eventual annexation to
Montenegro. Tbe latter alao would pro.
bibly be disappointed in her ambitions
dream concerning Bosnia and Hersego-
tmb.
BICYCLE BECORP8 SMASHED.
Cape Haytien, June 1,10.16 p.m.���The
Spanish government according to advices
received here from Havana intends to
out the cables which connect that city
with Kev West, if the other Cuban cables
are eut by the Americans.
A despatch from Santiago says : "The
American squadron which bombarded
Santiago, yesterday, wae composed of 14
vessels, among wbiob were recognized
the Iowa,. Brooklyn,' Massachusetts,
Texas, Amazon aod New Orleans, besides a gunboat and an auxiliary crui-aer
believed to be the Columbia. Tbe five
vessels wbicb were reeognieed opened
fire on the batteries ot Punta Gorda,
El Morro and Saeopa and : also on the
cruiser Cristobal Colon, which bad advanced toward the entrance of tbe harbor
and was visible from tbe high sea.
The Americans fired projectiles of 32
centimeters and the batteries as well as
tlie Cristobal Colon kept np an incessant
repulsive fire. Two shots landed on the
after part of the Iowa causing damage.
On the Spanish side too the damage was
insignificant, The Americans withdrew
at six o'clock last evening. This morning the Amerioan squadron appeared before Santiago but contented itself with
firing two shots, which are believed to
have been signels agreed upon with the
insurgents, who numbering 2000 to 3000,
are said to bave been concentrated two
or three miles from Santiago.
