Madrid,': June 17.���There is a feeling
of great optimism- in official circles
here and in the,lobbies of, the cortes,
owing: to thej 'departure ; of" Admiral
Camara's fleet." It is said in Madrid
that it consists of over twenty ships,
including auxiliary cruisers, and.. it is
added, that it has an enormous quantity of war materials on board, includ-,
ing a mysteriouisinewiexploswe; ' It is
also whispered that the squadron when
at sea was to bo divided aud to proceed
to different stations. Great secrecy is
maintained here in regard to the destination of Admiral Camnra's'floet. The'
Spanish newspapers say that work,is
being actively continued on the fortifications ih the Canary and Balearic
islands. The Liberal reiterates' thpr
declaration that "if Spain haatnoth;
ing to hope from the powers/ahe^s
still able to defend herself. " l A-.X
Before the depnrturfe of the Spanish
warships a flag of honor was embroidered by the ladies of Cadiz and pije-
aented to the officers of the cruifeer
Carlos V. The flag was blessed by a
priest on the deck of the vessel, and
the minister of marine made a patriotic speech. Captain Aunon subsequently held a council of war with the
commanders of all the , ships of the
squadron on board the battleship Pel-
ayo. Capatin Aunon, after the departure of Admiral Cainara, wired the following message to the premier: ';'.

certain phases of - tho campaign with
him. Speaking in-a general way of his
observations, General Miles said:
..."Having spent sometime with the
troops during a period of hurried preparations I am glad to say that they
are a splendid lot of ftien, which the
country may well be proud of. Of
course, the volunteer army in as well
equipped as the. regular army. Some
of the states sent men into the field: in
very good condition, notably Massachusetts' and New York. Others sent
them without arms, equipment or
clothing. They Were not soldiers at
all; only employed men. It takes time
to make soldiers of this material.''

Manila, June 9, via Houg Kong,
June 17.���El Cpmerciao has published
a supplement .,expatiating at great
length on the' '"Diabolical cruelties
practiced' in the British colonies" and
predicting ���>. a similar" tyranny in the
Philippines unless the powers intervene. To night almost all of the Spanish civilians are inside th-fT city! The
troops are manning the'walls; and the
antediluvian cannon and gunboats are
guarding the river. Admiral Dewey
has consented that Spanish merchant
steamers should remove the non-combatants. The insurgents exchange
signals with the Americans day and
night, while the Spanish continue
shooting at shadows, constructing
works which they admit will be unavailing and lining every road with
-useless defenses. ���
Besides this, in every skirmish, directly
the retreat begins, the native troops
desert. The insurgents avoid disturbing the nou-corilbatants, and English
women and children are .living peacefully and unhurt in the scene of hostilities. They find it unnecessary to
migrate. '

l:Londou, June 17. ���In the house of
\)Tda today the Marquis of Salisbury,
^plying to Lord Connemar, conserva-
|ve, formerly under secretary of state
bx foreign affairs, said Her Majesty's
Ibvernment was communicating with
L Chinese government respecting the
Lorganization of the army and navy

[egotiations respecting the navy reor-

Ihere was every hope that a distinguished British naval

help  to  reorganize
has had a communication from God,
who has promised him that the
"Yankee pigs" will be driven from
the islands and that Spain "will be
triumphant in the end.'' There is an
idea in Manila that the Germans have
something up their sleeves. On this
point the correspondent writes the following:
The Germans are disposed to be
meddlesome hero. Germans and Spaniards are vory "hnmmy, entertaining
one another af* dinner parties and
walking arm in arm everywhere.

of their coming in force until his return from the old country. "
that their-desire is>to fight for them.'"
The minister of marine also' .telegraphed to the Queen Regent enthusiastic greetings from'the squadron and-
the announcement of the determination '.' to fight to the last for the national honor."    -
It is announced that Captain Aunon,
after inspecting the arsenal at Carth-
agena. would return to this city and
organize a third squadron of warships.
He sent a message to the premier that
he was very much satisfied with the
condition of the squadron of Admiral
Camara. Premier Sagasta, it is said,
hopes to prorogue the chamber of deputies next week.
Another report sets forth that the
Spanish reserve fleet is going to the
Philippine islands. Fresh contingent;
of troops are being constantly called to
the colors, and there is great activity
in the war and navy departments.
Work on the fortifications at the different ports of Spain" aro being actively

News Confirmed by a Despatch
From Gibraltar.
Washington, June 17.���The state department has received the following
desnatch from its agent at Gibraltar:
The : Spanish  warships  Carlos   V,
Pelayo,    Rapiola,     Patriota,   Audux,��
Casada, Prospering   Giralda,  Prelajo,
Colon,' Alfonso Doce Cadpnga, Antonio
Iiopez, Isla Pinos, Buenos   Ayres and
San   Francisco   left Cadiz yesterday.
The   first   eleven   passed   the    Rock,
bound fot Carthagena for orders.   The
last three had  troops on board.   This
is Admiral Camara's Cadiz, squadron,
and appears to be iri - tbe Mediterranean, bound for African shores.
Manila, June 6, via Hong Kong,
June-1,7. ��� Spanish power is crumbling
in the Philippine islands. General
Pena and 1000 Spanish soldiers have
surrendered at Santa Cruz. Similar
surrenders have, taken place at Laguna
and Pampanya,and in each case hardly
anyone was killed. It is reported that
Rear Admiral Dewey is unable to restrain the insurgents, but their conduct
is satisfactory.
There is no necessity for interference
and tto excesses wiiatever have been
committed. This is partly due to the
merely nominal assistance furnished
the insurgents. The latter proposed to
form a republic under Anglo-American
tutelage, aud threatened to visit with
severe penalties the insurgents who
had become turncoats, especially in
tho case of Pater uo, a prominent native
protege cf the Spaniards. There was
desultory firing today in every quarter
on the outskirts of tho town, with no
material result, although there were
several artillery accidents and one explosion which killed six Spaniards and
wounded many others. The ammunition of the Spaniards is utterly untrustworthy, because it is old, rotten
and has never been tested. The Spaniards are impotent with rage. V The
cafes tonight are crowded with officers
with their hands in their pockets,1 gaping vacantly while an intermittent
fusilade is audible in all  directions.
Carloads  of food have been: stored in-

tion of standing a siege and   defying
the   American   ships, but   the idea is
ridiculously  preposterous, for the7 citadel,   so-called,   is   totally- untenable
against the fire of   modern warships.
There was a  concentrated attack yesterday evening in every direction. The
Spanish were informed  of  the  insurgents' intention   to  capture two magazines   outside   the   fortifications    at
Malata and Santa Mesa, southward and
westward of the city.    Therefore  they
concentrated their forces for a supreme
effort in their defense, and bombarded
the jungle all night long. In the mean-1
while the insurgonts captured Malabon
a��d Calooran, in the northwestern suburbs.   The   Spaniards  were thus outwitted, outgeneralled and harrassed to
death.    During  the   previous    night,
owing to a misunderstanding, a squad
of   Spanish   artillerymen    stampeded
from  Malata    into    Manila,   causing
immense consternation,   it  being  believed that the insurgents were storming tbe city:    A  Spanish officer commanding an  outpost   at.San Juan left
his men in charge of  a sergeant, came
to town and was there ;f ound helplessly
drunk.. It is reported that he was sentenced  to .death.    A  six-inch  gun at
Malata,   while   being  fired   into   the
woods over the Spaniards' heads, fired
a shot which struck  a   tree and killed
avy.    China, the ] marquis  said
' own willingness  to   accept British
[ssistance, the  difficulty   lying in her
lactance to  give a sufficiently inde-
ndent position to the officers to  en-
fble   them  to   overcome    traditional
eep-seated evils.    In  conclusion  the
Premier remarked:      . J
i'"We do not anticipate  a catastrophe
t.   There   can  be but one end and
ue of the present trend of events, so
^s as the Chinese empire is concerned,
nless its army and navy are developed
lines involving entire reform.''

Madrid, June 17.���The following
despatch from -Manila, signed by Captain General Augusti and" dated June
13, is published officially.    He says:
The grave situation set forth in my
despatch of June 8 continues, c The
troops are fighting on a "lirfe of blockhouses, which stops the ;eriemy\s advance. The enemy has been 'strengthened by detachments of "the native
troops, "which has diminished our.

me to take refuge within the walled

whether the detachments there will be
able to hold out against a lack of resources. I hope to receive, assistance,
from the peninsula before otir means of
defense are exhasted.
Toronto, June 17.���The following is

The Daily Mail again editorially discusses the action of Germany in excluding Canada from the benefits of
her most favored nations'treaty with
Britain, when all daughter states, says
thc Mail, give the mother country what
Canada is giving and the mother
country reciprocates. Very little will
be heard of Germany's refusal to extend her most favored nation treatment to the Dominion.

her supremacy on the seas, and how

There seems a likelihood of future
complications in eastern Europe. This
time it is' Servia who is. causing
trouble. Everyone remembers how the
j debaucheries and general misconduct
of ex-King Milan of Servia caused his
expulsion from the kingdom, his
abdication from the throne in favor of
his youthful son, and his divorce from
his wife, Queen Natalie.- The son ap.
pears to have followed ih the footsteps
of his father, and has retired, a complete'mental and physical wreck, into
retreat at Abbasia on the Adriatic,
leaving liis father as regent in charge
of the kingdom. Milan has taken advantage of his return to avail hmself
of his powers as chief of the executive
to suspend the constitution, declare the
kingdom in a state of seige and to declare martial law. His object in doing
this is, it is said, to punish certain influential men who have opposed him
in the past. The radicals, who form
95 percent of the population; are veiy
discontented, and a revolution is
imminent. Prince Nicholas of Montenegro is suggested as a candidate for
the throne, and as he  has the support

P'acing of a bounty upon home grown
wheat. Either of these measures wpuld
doubtless stimulate the production of
wlieat in England, but they are so
utterly repugnant to the established
f ee trade policy of Great Britain tbat
they may bo dismissed from consideration. Moreover, it would be impossible for England, under the most favorable conditions, to raise sufficient
wheat for the needs of her numerous
population. Perhaps the most practical suggestion that has been hitherto
p it forward is to bc found in an article
c mtributed   by   Mr
Nineteenth Century. Mr. Marston pro
poses the establishment of  state granaries containing  a   reserve say ef 10,-
C00,000 quarters.    It would, no  doubt;
probably be impossible to fill the gran-
sion of - the continent. In 1543 their
representative, Jacques Cartier., formally took possession of Canada on behalf of the French, and that led to
trouble. France made her first settlement at Quebec in 1608, and called
tlie country New France. In 1698 New
France, ihe French possession, fought
New England, the English possession.
There has been a transformation since
then. New England is now the for-
leign state; the transmuted "New
France" the British possession.
Yet through the first half of the
eighteenth century the positions were
i reversed. George Washington himself
in- 1754 fought Canadian France for
Great Britain. The French struggled
long for possession of North America;

gave up, and left Canada to settle down

increasing the price of wheat, and possibly causing a temporary^scarcit-jriiv
the supply of grain to the great injury of the poorer classes, yet as grain
when properly stored can bo kept indefinitely, there appears on tne face of
it to be no insuperable difficulties in
the way of gradually accumulating
such a reserve, while it should be possible by judicious attention to the
state of the wheat market to conduct
operations without causing any serious
loss to the government.
Once  such   a  reserve was iji existence, the added   strength conferred on
Great Britain would  be   incalculable.
Counting in the home supply, England
would  be ina  position to subsist for
over  six  mouths  without  calling for
�� supplies from  abroad  in case of war,
panics would be averted and the price
of wheat could be- prevented by  the
government from  rising.to starvation
prices.    Oor fleets would  also be  enabled to concentrate in greater strength
when, encountering the.enemy, as the
necessity of   hourly guarding the merchant shipping would  not be of such.
immediately vital importance.
The possibility, remote, it is true,
of England being starved into submis-
siion owing to some unforeseen accident
occurring to our fleets, has always been
before the eyes of- British- statesmen,
and Mr. Marston's suggestion seems to
point the way to reducing this risk to
a uegligable minimum.

Development  Work  Being Prosecuted
Vigorously on Quartz Creek
Thu Sahuo Consolidated company
havo commenced tho work of driving
a 500-foot tunnel ou one of their properties on Sheep creek.
John Curtain, who has tlie contract
for driving the tunnel at the Jubilee
mine, reports that he is making good
progress on his contract,and also states
that the Jubilee is looking well.
A. J. Hughes and Joe Levier have
three men at work on the Silver Lake,
situated on the south side of Porcupine
creek. They have just struck a fine
body of ore, tho ledge being five feet-
wide, with 18 inches of solid galena.
This was encountered at a depth of
only five feet.
Richard Dismond has made some
valuable locations during the past week
on Wild Horse creek. He located two
claims adjoining the Anaconda group,
and judging from the specimens of ore
he has from these claims he has found
something good.
There is a great deal of develoment
work being done around Ymir at present. The properties are all showing up
well and the boys are confident they
will bo able to make a stake for the
coming winter. We would advise prospectors to put in all thc work possible
on their claims, and thoy will be certain to get good prices when thoy sell.
Capitalists " will not put their money
into undeveloped property.
On last Saturday Howard C. Wallace
bonded the Blye from Dr. ^Kellers and
F. S. Alger, and also the Kandell from
Oliver Blair and the Petrie boys. Both
of these properties are situated on Wild
Horse creek. The exact'figures of the
bond was not given to the Miner, but
it is understood the amount was large.
Considerable development work has already been done on the two properties.
Frank C. Davey, who will havo charge
of the working of the property, put a
force of men to work ou Monday.���

Government   Money Will Build  Several Roads. '
New Denver, June 17. ���The expenditure of public moneys in street grading, sidewalk building, etc., has put
many men to work, and with the opening of next week thero will be still
greater activity. Work will then be
started on the roads to Three Forks
and Silverton, and the road up Four
Mile from Silverton. In all about
$10,000 will be spent on these:highways, widening and repairing them
and -putting-~them���in -condition���for-
heavy travel. Much ore is waiting to
be hauled down the Four Mile road,
and mine' owners there have been
forced to close down their properties or
reduce their forces to a small number,
owing to their inability to use the
road. The Three Forks road has been
in poor condition since spring opened,
owing to slides and fallen timber, and
can only be used by pack animals.
This will be cleared and widened
apd good wagon road connection will
be made direct with Sandon. In addition to these public works a $6C0
vault will be built in the government
building here, the contract for which
was let this week.
A. J. Marks arrived Tuesday from
Nelson with pack animals and supplies to open up the California. He
will put 30 men to work as soon as
they can be accommodated. For the
present only a small force will be put
on,' until the ore bodies are sufficiently
opened up.
Speaking of the cost of producing
copper and its bearing upon the future
of the copper market, a mine official
says:* ���
"In my opinion it will be impossible
to much further reduce the cost of
mining copper. The system now has
reached an almost perfect ,state, and
experiments which have been made recently with a view to still further reducing the cost of mining, by using
higher explosives, find that the results are far from satisfactory. We
have tried higher explosives, but find
that the results are not satisfactory as
compared with lower grade explosives,
inasmuch as a smaller quantity !of
rock is displaced by the higher grades
than by the lower grades. The force
of the high-grade explosives, undoubt-

edly,' is much greater, but. it is expended so quickly that it does not perform as much work as do the low-
grade explosives. If the cost of electrical power could be cheapened, it
would make considerable difference to
mines liko the Tamarack, for instance,
where a vertical shaft is sunk, say 5000
feet, then changed' to follow the in
cline of the lode. The danger from fire
and the physical and mechanical difficulties are too great to install a. steam
plant a mile under ground, and compressed air cannot be used for hoisting
from- great depths. Possibly the future
may develop a cheaper electrical,
power, but until it does tho cost of
mining copper or of .handling a ton of
rock will not be materially reduced
from present figures.���Mining and

In Australia public attention is now
centered on the polling which is to decide the question of Australian federation. Meetings���at which the supporters of federation have been generally
in a large majority���have been held in
all the capitals of the colonies and iu
important provincial towns. An affirmative vote is regarded as certain in
Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. The result of the voting in
New South Wales is uncertain, though
the meetings held in'favor of the
scheme have .been enthusiastic. A
heavy poll is expected in all the colonies. The polling in New South
Wales takes place on Saturday,'and in
the other colonies, with the exception
of Western Australia, yesterday (Friday). A vote will not be taken in the
latter colony until after the federation
proposal has "been submitted to parliament.���The Empire.

Government Official   guys It Will Surprise  the World.
Mr. G. H. V. Bulyea, the member
cf the North West Territories Assembly
%vho was. sent north to represent his
government, and who passed through
Vancouver during the winter, arrived
safely in Dawson, and is already preparing to return. In a letter just received from him Mr. Bulyea says: .
"I expect to be back early in the
summer. I am making inquiries as to
the possibility of going up the Pelly
river and thence overland to ���Edmonton. Old guides assure me that lhe
trip can be made in remarkable time,
and if I ani satisfied that it can, I will
undertake the trip so that I can lay
beforo the assembly definite information conoiinlng a route which, if
opened, would be of immense value to
the Assiniboia farmers and the Alberta ranchers. I' can't say that the
trip is any more inviting than the one
just completed, but I imagine that it
would be cort.iinljT interesting, and
the information gained would be important, whether favorable er otherwise. "     ���
In   auothcr   paragraph   Mr.   Bulyea
"The town is fairly orderly, although all the hangers-on of a mining
town are here. They have, lio-A'ever,
a magnified awe of Canadian justice,
aud the American anarchist on his
own side of the lino is held in check
hero without any trouble. I havo never
seen a man carrying a pistol or a
knife, nor have I heard an angry word
since I arrived hero. Times appear to
bo very lively, but a boom is expected
as soon as the gold, is washed up. This
will bo finished about tho middle of
June, and I candidly think that the
world will be surprised at the gold
output of Dawson. El Dorado and
Bonanza are the creeks that are extensively worked, but as other creeks are
prospected thoy aro turning out A. "1.
Dominion Creek, discovered last
year, is considered bv local men to
be as-valuable as any of the old creeks,
and claims are held very nearly as
high. Sulphur, All Gold and a dozen
others are splendid prospects and very
valuable. In the bench claims gold is
found in chunks away up on the top of
the mountain, a fact that surprises the
knowing mineralogist. Gold is found
in the most unlikely places.
"There is plenty of food now at
Dawson. The scarcity arose because
a certain clique endeavored to corner
the food supply and trade on the needs
of their fellows. They 'succeeded*, for a
time,, but the supply was bigger than
the demand, and now you can buy
provisions very reasonably. In any
lines, however, in which there is an
actual scarcity the prices are fancy.
Butter is..$8 for a tin of two pounds;
condensed'milk is $2 a can; sugar, $1
a pound, and so 0:1. Lumber is $300 a
thousand feet here, and delivered at
the mines for sluice boxe3 it costs $1 it
foot. A inan brought ten kegs of nails
from Fort Yuk-bn a few days ago and
refused a cash oSFer for the lot of $4500.
He asked and got $Y a pound. Wages
run from $15 to $25 according to the
skill required. It is the blacksmiths
and tinsmiths, however, who are making the harvest. One man was shrewd
enough last fall to secure all the stock
of iron in town. He is not doing a
thing with the boys now. A man
showed me an irpu bolt he had got fixed
the other day. It was a half inch bolt
and the bolt had broken off at the uut.
He had to pay one ounce of gold, current at $17. Diminutive bob sleighs
cast for hauling lumber were ironed
by him at a cost of $175 per set. A
broom costs $17, and a turkey offered
for sale a few weeks ago brought $150.
Meals at the restaurants are $2.50 and
were $1.50 five weeks ago. "   ������;','���

Dotails of Troop3 Required to Recruit
Existing Regiments.
Washington, June 17.���Adjutant
General Corbin made public tonight
the number of additional regiments,
battalions, companies or batteries required from each state under the sec-
teers. The organization from each
state will be in addition to the number of men which will be enlisted
from the several states to "fill the maximum of 108 men to a company in the
organizations for the field. Of the 75.-
000 men required under the president's
second call 43,000 will be needed to recruit the existing volunteer regiments
up to the maximum strength. To obtain these recruits, details from each
volunteer regiment- are now in the
state from which they come. The remaining 32,000 men will be organized
in��o companies, battalions and regiments as tho exigency of the call require each state meeting the requirements of the second as it does those of
the first call Under the second call
the various stales and territories will
furnish ns organizations, 22 regiments
of intantry, six regiments aud three
companies of infantry in unattached
organizations, 14 light batteries wid
three heavy batteries. '���'*-;���'

Two-thirds of the Entire World's Mail
Is1 in English.
Two-thirds of all the letters which
pass through the postoffices of the
world are written by and sent to people who speak English. There are
substantial^* 500,000,000 persons speaking colloquially one or another of the
ton or twelve chief modem languages,
and of these about 25 per cent, or 125, -
000,000 persons, speak English. About
90,000,000 speak Russian, 75,000,000
German, 55,000,000 French, 45,000,000
Spanish, 85,000,000 Italian, and 12,-
000,000 Portuguese, and the balance
Hungarian,. Dutch, Polish, Flemish,
Bohemian, Gaelic, Roumanian, Swedish, Finnish, Danish and Norwegian.
Thus, while only one-quarter of those
who employ the facilities of the postal
departments of civilized governments
speak, as their native tongue, English,
two-thirds of those who correspond do
so in the English language.
This situation arises from the fact
that so large a share of thei commercial
business of the world is done iu English j even among those who do not
speak English as their native language.
There are, for instance, more than
20,000 postbaSces in India, the business
of which,in letters and papers aggregates morie than; 800,000,000 parcels a
year,, and,the business of these offices
is done chiefly '.jn. English, though of
India's .population, which is nearly
300,000,000, fewer than 300,000 persons
either speak or understand English.
Though 90,000,000 speak or understand Russian, the business of the
Russian post department is relatively
small, the number, of letters sent
throughout tlie czar's empire amounting to less than one-tenth the number
mailed in Great Britain alone, though
the population of Great Britain is considerably less than one-half of the
population of Russia in Europe.
The Southern and Central American
countries in which either Spanish or
Portugese . is spoken do comparatively
little postoffice business, the total number of letters posted and. collected in a
year in all the countries of South and
Central America and the West Indies
being less than in Australia- Chile
and Argentina are, in fact, the only
two South American countries in
which any important postal business is
done, and most of thc letters received
from or sent to foreign countries are
not in Spanish, but in English, French,
German or Italian.���New York Herald.        '- ���- "��� '���"
Anti-British   Utterances Are   Now   a
Thing of  the Past.
The Anglo-American entente, if it
may be so termed, seems to be making rapid headway. We used to hear
of bitter anti-British utterances" at-
jubilations in the United States. All
that is changed now. Colonel A. D.
Shaw of Watertown, New York, in the
course of ah oration at the Memorial
Day celebration at New York uttered
���the following, generous sentiments regarding the new Anglo-Saxon relations:
"From oyer the sea there comes to
us at least one clear national voice of
assurance from the old motherland���
Great Britain���that the heart of England ��� beats true to us in this great
struggle in which we are now engaged. When we look into Anglo-
Saxon eyes responsive smiles come into
view and .the clasped hands tell the
story of firm friendship. 'True it is
that at times there have been ripples
on the dividing waters, but deep down
iu the majesty of the warm Gulf
Stream there is an abiding wealth of
common interests and common confidence and common Christianity which
makes two great nations one iu the
essentials of liberty and justice. This
period of war opens our eyes to tho
narrowness of nations whom we have
long regarded as friends. We arc likely
to prove the girth and grain of foreign
governments as tested by the war now
upon us. - France, who gave us a
Lafayette���of ever glorious deeds and
memory���sent Maximillian to his
doom when we were fighting to the
death for our imperilled Union; and at
present, in our just action in behalf-of
tree Cuba, France trifles with and
sneers at us and coquettes with the
tyranny of Spain. Alas, that this
should be true; but comrades, we have
our compensations oyer the sea, for tho
conscience of Ei)gland|glcws r3sp3usi\e
with our own iii this new trial of
war, and we can rest assured that
John Bull and Brother Jonathan will
be fast friends-through it all. Inthe
adversity of her friends England is always grand. How much this all
means!. Blood is thicker than water.
These two nations standing side by
side for God and humanity can light
the way of righteousness over all the
globe. The eagle and the lion are national emblems that the world respects
and fears. Together they could command peace with honor in the cause of
justice everywhere." .
Word was brought to the police here
on the 4th inst. of the sudden disappearance^j^^DayM���Beid,���a���:memberof-
a party bound north on a quest for coal
oil, not gold> says the- Edmonton Bulletin. The story told to the police by
the leader of the party, Ti B. Strans-
burg, is that Reid came to New Westminster some time ago, bringing with
him some samples of crude petroleum
which, he stated, had been discovered
by him while on a journey into the
north, from which journey he has just
returned. The petroleum was tested
and found to be of good quality, and a
party was formed in New Westminster
to revisit the spot, Reid, of course,
being appointed to lead them on their
quest. They were to reach the interior
via Edmonton, and duly arrived here
last week, leaving again on Thursday
last on their overland trip. They had
reached a point five miles beyond St.
Albert when Reid claimed to be ill and
wanted to return to enter the hospital.
The party, however, did not think.it
altogether necessary and one returned
to town for medicine, but during his
absence Reid gathered together his
now belongings and lit out.
The next day some of the party
while hunting horses saw in a distance
a man who resembled Reid, and as he
had a dog, and as Reid was known to
have taken his dog along with him,
they were almost confident it was the
missing guide. For some reason he
was not followed up, but the matter
was reported to the police, as above
stated, the party think possibly he
had become demented aid wandered a-
way. The fact that he took all of his
own goods and nothing that was not
his own, does not strengthen this belief. A curious thing about his con-
duet and subsequent desertion was that
beyond his fare to Edmonton he gained
nothing for his trouble. Had he received a sum of money for his services
a more simple solution would be apparent.
In the United States yesterday the
TJnion Jack -was hoisted on many
buildings in honor of our Queen's
birthday. The great national celebration of the American peoplo, July
Fourth, will be upon us in a few
weeks. Why should we not at once return the compliment of our kinsman
and bury the memory of what Mr.
Chamberlain called '' pur great blun-
der," by the exhibition on public and
private buildings of the flag that, with
our own, stands for liberty, humanity
and English thought and ideas. In
Liverpool the custom has long been
followed. What Mr.Rhodes calls "flag-
wagging" does not much appeal to us
men of slower blood, but the thousands
of Americans iu Loudon during tlie
summer months should speedily to
shown that there j|s no hatchet to bury
between us, and tlitit English sympathy
is as strong today in the lime of their
little Derplexity-'ias it has been for
years in their prosperity. ���London
