ahed about 11.30 o'clock, the steamer
ig met at the wharf by a large num-
1 of the citizens of the ''city of en-

visitors,
the remainder of the day was given
to sports, in a nnmber of which rep-
sntatives from Nelson participated.

Tbe football match between the New
Denver and Kaslo teams waa woo by tbe
latter by 1 goal to nothing.
In the baseball match, Sandon defeated Neleon by a score of 11 to 9, at
the end of tbe sixth inning.
Tbe most exciting event of the day was
the hose reel race in whieh the Nelson,
Sandon and Kaslo brigade* competed-
Nelson ran flrst aod made a splendid ron
aod coupling, in 33 seconds, although
tbey .were considerably haodioapp*d by
iiavjiogjucariaodiboseijoiwbiob tbey-
were unaccustomed.
Sandon followed and made a good roo
but through some miscalculation on tbe
part of the hydrant men, tbey were unable to make tbe coupling and were consequently out of the contest.
The Kaslo team got water iu 33 seconds, making a tie with Nelson. The
judges therefore deciced tbat tbe fl50
prize be divided between the two teams
aud declared all bets off.
A number of horse racing events were
held in the evening. The day's enjoyment was brought to a close by a flue display of fire works from tbe opposite side
of the bay and by a ball at tbe auditorium. The New Denver brass band
were in attendance and enlivened tbe day
witb excellent music.
The return trip on the Kokanee left
Kaslo at 7.30, and the tired excursionists
reached Nelson aboat 11 o'oloek. A considerable number remained over for the
ball and came down on the Nelson on
tbe following morning.
The Kelson brass band accompanied
the excursionists and added greatly to
tbe pleasure of the trip. The citizens of
Kaslo expressed tbeir appreciation of
the visit of such,b large number of people, from Nelson and promise a large turn
out here on Dominion day. ^
THE 24th AT YMIR.     .
Washington, May 25.���The event of
the day in the war situation was the
issuance of a proclamation Iby tbe president calKug for 75,000 more volunteers.
It added a new and striking phase to the
letbargio conditions which have prevailed of late and came with almost startling unexpectedness, even to many of
the high officials in the army. The
proclamation means not only the assembling of a large force of troops, but also
the appointment of a large number of
major-generals, .brigadier-general--, colonels, majors and staff aud field officers
for the organization of this additional
force of 75,000 into army corps, divisions,
brigades and regiments^
Tbe new force will require either by
appointment or by officers already appointed three tnajoi-genernU and about
24 brigadier-generals.
Tfce tar authorises the president to
appoint one major-general for each army
oorps aod one brigadier-general for eaoh
brigade. Brigadier-generals are also
assigned to tbe commands of divisions
wbeo tbe organization advances to tbat
stage.
Tbe colonels, lieut-oolonels, majors,
captains and lieutenants are appointed
by the governors of the various states
as tbe law provides that ''all regimental
nod company officers shall be appointed
by tbe governors of tb�� states in which
tbeir respective organizations are raised."
It was stated at the war department
that the detailed work of organizing this
new force would not be actively taken up
for tbe present. Jost now tbe adjutant-
general's office is engaged io completing
the enlistment of the 125,000 volunteers,
under tbe first call. It will take some
time to complete tbis work and oot until
tben will tbe real work of organizing the
volunteers uoder ^b��T ISi&ood^cair
begin.
serviceable war craft to take care of any
reinforcements that might attempt to
eome from Spain to Cervera's aid. Tbe
force that could be spared for tbis service without endangering the integrity of
the blockade at Havana or permitting the
escape of Cervera, will be moeb larger
than the entire Spanish naval force now
in Spanish waters capable of crossing
tbe Atlantic.
Tbe news of the safe arrival of tbe
Oregon in American waters was a source
of unalloyed satisfaction to all naval
officers.
Within the past few weeks or in
fact ever since the determination waa
positively reached to invade Cuba, before the dry season next fall, tbere bave
been published intimations that the
delay or what appeared to be delay in
arranging the invasion was attributed to
the navy. In other words, the army had
long before prepared to start for Cuba
bnt could not do so for lack of convoys
and ships to insure landing. It can be
stated on tbe highest authority tbat the
impression thus created is wholly unjust
to the navy and without warrant, io fact
tbe navy officers one and all take special
pride in tbe degree of readiness in whieh
the navy was found ot the outbreak of
hostilities and there never has been a
moment, even whon Sampson's foroes
were at Porto Rico, wnen the navy waa
not prepared on iuutaut notice to aid the
army in effecting a landing in Cuba, nor
on the other baud bas tbe array been at
fault iu this matter. Tc* equip an army
cf 100,000 men and put them in condition
to fight trained veteran soldiers on tbeir
own soil wns no small undertaking, so
that iu the opinion of the highest officers
of the administration, there is no good
reason for passing tbe criticism tbat
there is or Las been undue delay in beginning the military campaigu, either ou
the part of tbe army or navy.

GERMANS CALLED DOWN.
New York, May 24.���A despatch from
Manila says that the German consul
tbere tried to land provisions from a German ship, but Dewey refused permission.
Tbe consul declared tbat be would enforce tbe landing under the protection
of two German cruisers. Dewey threatened to fire upon tbe oruisers and the
attempt to land supplies was abandoned.
SPANISH FLEET MOVING.
Ymir, May 25 (Special)���The celebration here was a big success.   Everything
passed off quietly and in a manner be-
(Concluded on Fourth Page.)
Reports were ourrent tbat ao army ot
invasion was about to start for Cuba aod
Forto Rioo. It was based on the coo-
jeotnre, wbicb bas beeo oorreot of late,
but officials in authority give it no force,
a�� it waa manifestly contrary to publio
policy to give any advance information
of such a move even it it was contemplated. The report that General Miles
aod bis staff would leave tonight was
specifically denied, although it is probable tbat tbe commanding general will
leave for tbe south at an early date.
At tbe close of the day at the navy
department the situation ot tbe fleets
both American aod Spanish waa precisely
���sit was tbis morning, so far as tbe officials knew, tbe only notable difference
being an apparent strengthening of tbe
confidence of the officials in their belief
tbat Cervera's squadron is lying in tbe
Santiago barbar. In tbis hope and
belief tbe officials found great comfort,
kuowing the abilities of the American
commanders in.Cuban waters to keep
the Spanish admiral bottled up in h's
narrow neck harbor, until he shall surrender or be starved out. If Cervera 5s
actually at bay, the officials feel not
the slightest apprehension of relief coming to him from the outside, in the shape
of another Spanish squadron from Cadiz.
The reason for this belief is their unquestioned ability. to hold Cervera in check
witb only a few vessels, perhaps a couple
of monitors and torpedo boats, thusleav-
Cape Haytien, May 25.���A rumor,
wbiob cannot be confirmed, is circulated
here to the effect that the Spaoish Cape
Verde squadroo under Admiral Cervera,
wbicb was generally believed to be at
Santiago de Cuba, is now at Cienfuegos.
CABLES ARE NOT CUT.
On board tbe Associated Press dispatch boat Wanda, off Havana, May
23rd (filed Key West May 25.)-At
daybreak on Sunday morning the
entire squadron under Rear Admiral
Sampson was lying directly opposite
the entrance to Havana harbor, about
10 miles off Spore, a formidable mouse
colored flotilla of battleships, monitors, cruisers, yachts, light house
tenders and torpedo boats.
The   peaceful    inactivity    noticed
today on board tbe vessels of the fleet
had given way to scenes of life and
bustle.     The   decks   of every   ship
swarmed with crowds of blue jackets
and white jackets, officers and marines.
Around the flagship, from whose mainmast fluttered, the crimson pennant of
precedence,...rocked on ��� the. chopping
waves were a score of launches and gigs
from surrounding Waships, each manned   by   sailors   in .spotless  white.
They had brought aboard the commanding officers of their respective
vessels, where they had  apparently
left the flagship and returned with
their officers aboard their own vessels.
Almost immediately thick columns of
black smoke began to pour from tbe
smoke stacks of the assembled fleet
and slowly, almost imperceptibly, the
flagship began to move to the eastward.   A number of vessels were left
behind on blockade duty, tbe acting
flagship flying a blue pennant.   About
two hours later a large double masted
and  double funnelled  cruiser came
steaming along uoder full head-way
from the westward.    0When within
hailing, distance and without slacking
her speed she exchanged signals with

which it is said is going to be used for
transporting troops from Tampa to Cuba,
weighed anchor at 3:25 p.m. and pio-
ceeded to sea.
MR. GLADSTONE'S REMAINS.

London May 26.���Mr. Gladstone's
remains arrived at Westminster, London,
at one o'clock this morning, accompanied by Messrs.] Herbert and Henry
Gladstone.
Vast crowds witnessed the departure
from Hawarden and were preaent at
Chester and various other points on the
journey to London. A group of thirty
or forty gentlemen who are connected
with the ceremonies, including tho Duke
ot Norfolk, awaited the arrival of tbe
train at the platform and conducted the
transfer of the body to Westminster
Hall.
Tbe coffin bas been placed in position
for lying in state. This was done at 3
O'clock tbis morning, when Cannon Wil-
berforce conducted a special service in
the presence of Messrs. Henry and Herbert Gladstone and several members of
the House of Commons.

ia Nicholas channel off Cardenas,
heading, for the old Bahama channel.
The squadron was speeding with care,
for Admiral Cervera had not yet,
actually, been bottled up and care must
betaken lest the fox turn and dash
out. of Santiago, around the east end
of Cuba, up through the Windward
passage and north to attack the cities
of the Atlantic coast of the United
States. In all likelihood Commodore
Schley will be able to spring the trap
and then rear Admiral Sampson may
hasten to Santiago. A great game is
being played and the situation is one
of extreme suspense. After Admiral
Cervera is sealed up in Santiago harbor, th e problem will be us in the case
of a "Varmint" caught in a trap,
whether to shoot or starve him. It is
expected that" the battleship Oregon
will be ordered to join rear Admiral
Sampson's .fleet.
SUPPLIES GETTING SCARCE.
London, Nay 26���A apecial despatch
from Madrid via Biaritz says there has
been an active exchange of despatches
between tbe government and the authorities at Havana and San Juan de Porto
Rioo on the subject of sending ooal and
provisions to Santiago de Cuba. It is alleged that Admiral Cervera has wired
confirming the report that Santiago de
Cuba is cut off from communication with
the interior by strong bands of insurgents
and that in consequence coal and provisions are getting scarce and dear. THE MINER, THURSDAY, MAY 26, 1898,

seems so eminently calculated to
encompass fro:n above.
Such is, or soon, will be, modern
warfare, and how changed from
the times when Lord Nelson swept
the seas, when an officer knew that
so long as he laid his ship along
side tlie enemy's and fought stoutly
he could do no wrong.- Little recked
he of torpedos or submarine mines,
or still less of these later diabolical;
inventions.
What further horrors naval science of the future may have in store
for us it is impossible to tell, and
the one ray of hope for the lovers
of peace seems to be, that one day,
aghast at the fearful: slaughter, the
nations will cry " hold, enough!"
and go to war no more.

Apart from the natural sympathy
we feel for our American cousins in
the war in which they are now engaged, and notwithstanding the
fact that the issue appears tb be a
foregone conclusion, yet there prob
abiy never was a struggle whose
details were so eagerly awaited by
tlie nations of the world at large,
and by naval men in particular...;
The American and Spanish admirals are now engaged in the practical solution of the knotty problems
thait have been worrying the brains
of naval architects and experts of
the present generation.
For instance, there are those who
think that the huge modern battleship is nothing more than an immense death trap, destined to fall
an easy prey to the swift and deadly;
though insignificant' looking torpedo boat. This and many other
problems will probably receive a
definite answer during the present
war.
There are ?lso in the American
fleet two vessels armed with quite
novel weapons ot offense, and which
are avowedly experiments in naval
warfare. We refer to the two
dynamite cruisers���the Vesuvius
and the Nictheroy. These vessels
are armed with what is called "dynamite guns," but which are really
throwers of aerial torpedoes;
The Vesuvius carries three such
contrivances, which are not mounted
on carriages owing to their extreme
length, but are. built into the ship
and so can only be aimed by movr
ing the ship. Nevertheless "a Yerjr
considerable accuracy of aim has
^beeh: attairted'inrpracticeiand asM:h&
shell is exploded by a time fuse, it
is hot necessary that the object
should be absolutely hit to insure
an effective shot.    ;
The guns are fired byv means of
compressed air, and the 'shells contain a charge of two to five hundred
pounds of nitrb-glycerine. The extreme range of accurate firing is
3,000 yards.
Atpreseiit the short range of these
guns compared with that bf the
heavy guns on the larger men-of-war
detracts from their efficiency, more
especially as the vessels themselves
are high out of the water and offer
a good mark to the enemy, but
what a fearful vista of wholesale
slaughter and bloodshed is opened
up by the prospect of the perfecting
of such dire engines of destruction.
Nor are these the only new contrivances by means of which it is
proposed to heap xonfusion on the
unfortunate Spaniards. There is
also with the Cuban fleet a submarine boat, of new and fearful design,
and which, if it comes up to the
confident expectation of its inventor,
will, without giving any sign or
Wartting-, wreak the destruction
from beneath the surface of the
ocean   which   the   dynamite
Negotiations will begin this week
in Washington, between the officials
of the.state department, the British
ambassador, Sir Julian Paunceforte
and the Canadian minister of marine,
as a preliminary step towards a
convention pr treaty between the
United States and Great Britain,
clearing up numerous long pending
controversies. It is hoped that a
common ground of understanding
in regard tp the: Alaskan boundary
dispute and the question of seal
fishing will be reached.
A friendly settlement of all the
questions at issue between the two
countries will be regarded in foreign
quarters as significant arid as an
outgrowth of the friendly sentiments
recently exhibited between the two
Anglo-Saxon nations.'

Yesterday afternoon, considerable
excitement was aroused in the city
over a report that a great naval battle, had been fought in West Indian-
waters between the fleets of the
United States and Spain. Thc
Miner's despatches this morning
state that as yet no battle has been
fought but indicate that the report
of ohe may be expected at any time.
The combined squadrons of Admiral Sampson and Admiral Schley
are now before Santiago de Cuba
blockading the fleet of Admiral Cervera. This must inevitably result
in a. collision, thf first report of
which will be given promptly to the
readers of The fyliher.
ENFORCING ALIEN LABOR LAW,

to onn. THE MiNER, THURSDAY, MAYyzt, 1S98.
LOYALLY    CELEBRATED.
Continued from First Page,
fitting the occasion. The day's programme began with a salute of tvrenty-
one guns fired from the adjacent bills.
Shortly afterwards the squeal of tho bagpipes announced the approach of the.
school children's procession which halted
nt the band Btnnd while the children saug
"The Maple Leaf Forever." The local
court of Foresters then joined the procession and after a triumphant umrrh
through First avenue, another halt wa��
inade at the same place aud the orators
of tbe day, Messrs. Lennox and Sheppard addressed the assembled multitude
with grace and fire. The speeches over,
the children sang "God save the Queen,"
after which the sports began.
The first event was the packers' race.
Eaoh competitor was requited to load
his pony, make the goal and unload.
The pen of a Dickeus would fail to:describe this race. The breadth ot straddle
perpetrated by "Pete the Packer," as be
flew along First avenue towards the 825
prize which awaited bim at tho other end,
his spreading arms and legs and tbe
gentle solicitations with which he endeavored to impress uponbisbeast tbene-
cessity of making haste, were only equalled by the unparalleled patience under di >'
Acuities shown by bis competitor?, who
were unfortunate enough to lose their
packs midway in the course.
Tbe chief event of tbe afternoon, of
course, was tbe drilling match, in which
the victors were Odie aud Page, who succeeded in drilling 3S^ inches through
granite in the 15 minutes.
Tbe 100 yards dash was won by Jack
Allen with Billy Watson of Nelson, second.
In the evening a well attended lecture
was delivered by Mr. Lennox, in the interests of the I.O.P.
The day's sport was wound up with a
grand ball in the Stanley hall.
THE DAY AT SILVERTON.
Hetween fifty and sixty citizens of Nelson boarded tbe C.P.R. train on Tuesday
morning, en route to spend the day with
the people of Silverton. The beautiful
scenery along the Kootenay and Slocan
rivers, us viewed from the train was
thoroughly enjoyed. At Stooan City the
excursionists were increased in numbers
to about 151, the.remaining distance being made in the steamer Slocan.
Silverton. was reached at 11 o'clock

native, who was with the American
missionaries at Rotufunk, when they
were massacred by the insurgents,
engaged in the.uprising against the
imposition of a hut tax, but who made
his escape by resuming his native
garb, furnished the following account
of the tragedy:
"We started to walk to Sierra Leone,
but had only gone half a mile when
we met a party of war boys, who
blocked the way..... The Rev. Mr. Cain
tried to frighten them by firing a
revolver over their heads, but seeing
they were determined to do mischief,
he cast his revolver away and said he
would not have anybody's blood on his
bands. The war boys then seized the
party and Misses Hatfield, Archer,
and Kent, stripped them of their clothing and dragged them back to the
mission house, in front of which the
war boys cut down the Rev. Mr. Cain
and hacked him to death and treated
Miss Archer and Miss Kent in the
same way. Miss Hatfield who was
very ill was thrown on a barbed wire
netting and Anally her throat was cut,
Mrs. Cain escaped to the hush with a
native girl, but the war boys found
them and they were killed."
