Willow Grove, Pa., Blay 28,-Tbe
open race meet of tbe season et the Willow Grove bioyole race track was beji
today under tbe atwpioes of tbe American Cycle Racing Association. Jimmie
Michael, the little Welshman, carried off
tbe honors in an exhibition two miles,
paced, breaking the world's reoord of 8.27
made by J. Platta Betts; at tbe Crystal
Palace, JLocdon. Michael's time today
was 8.26 2 5. He made tbe first third in
31seconds, and the first mile in 1.89 4-5.
The remaining-three laps were covered
in 2.17,2.511-5 and 3.26 2-5. Tbe otber
important event of the day was the
match-race of 20 miles, between Bdouard
Taylore, the French champion, and J.
Frank Starbuck, of this oity, paced.
Taylore won fey 25 yards.        *
Philadelphia, Pa., May 28.���The
world's tandem competition record for
one mile was lowered from 1.56 2-5 to
1.54 2-5 today, by Boulay and Cavalley,
the French riders,, on the new board
track at Woodside' park. The Frenchmen were the scratch men in the international professional tandem handicap,
and broke jthe record in the second heat-
The best they could do in the final heat
Was to get third place, Dippy and
Boughtbn, 115 yards, and the Sims
Brothers, 45 yards, beating them out.
Washington, May 23.-The navy department   reoeived   information today,
wbicb, for tbe first time, relieved the of
floials of the auiiety and doubt tbey bave
felt,for the last few daya and satisfied
tbem on" two vital points; first, tbat the
Ameriaui fleet, under Commodore Schley
ia outside Santiago harbor, and seoond,
that Admiral Cervera'e fleet is inside.     "
Thia information earner" from  private
sources, whioh -��� naval officials, regard ��s
thoroughly   reliable.     Relying  on the
private advioea reoeived, naval  officials
believe   tbat the .military situation ia
simplified.   With the Spaajah fleet on
tbe inside and tbe.Amerioan fleet out-
aide, it ia said that.tbe powers of mischief ofthe Spanish fleet, am at an end.

fo tttfce the desperate chances of going
out in .weather heavy enough to compel
tbe big American ironoleda to seek shelter, unless we bloto the harbor by soutt-
Jing bargee in their channel.'    f
paring the day tbe navy department
posted a bulletin giving itattttring advioea from Admiral Pewey. This was tbe
only specific bit of information'given out
during oflftoe hours. \\ was a day replete
witb rumors. Some of tbem of a very
sensational nature, but the various reports of sanguinary battles failed of verification and nltimately proved to ibe
groundless as tbe reports reaching bare

NO FdltElGN INTEEVEKTION;
Diplomats State Tbat th* Powers will
not Intervene.
Washington, P. C, May 28.���The diplomatic representatives in Washington,
of tbe great powers, without exception,
bold tbe view that there it no present
foreign intervention in, tbe present war
and that tbere is no present prospect of
peace overtures, through arbitration or
other tender of goo-ij offioes from foreign
sources. This was stated today at three
of tbe leading Embassies. It was given
with added emphasis, in view ot the
constanty reiteration from London and
other foreign sources that some sort of
foreign intervention towards terminating
the war waa likely to mature.
DID NOT CATCH HER.
Key Weat, Mav 28.r-No further intd.
ligence has reached here of the United
States gunboat Bancroft's chaie of a
mysterious steamer, supposed to be a
Spanish auxiliary cruiser. When sighted
the night before last, 15 miles off here
tbe Spaniard was standing in a southerly
direction and the Bancroft began the pursuit at a decided disadvantage to her.
Tbe non-appearance of tbe gunboat and
the lack ot news, tends to the belief that
the Spaniard got away. A sharp look
out is still being kept.

WAJV EAGliB STOCK.
The Montreal Gazette BefertFiuanoially
x.1- to tbe |||f Mine.
Montreal. May 38-The Gaiwtte, flnaiii
ciarijr referring to the regrilar listitfg of
War Biffie mining stook on the Montreal stack eicbang^, a*ya : M We under-
���tMd that before Mir. Gobderbani would
allow the stock to be listed on tiie stock
exchange or pay a dividend be called in
two of the most etoinebt mining experts
of the United States, and it was only
after their report that the mine had
���nffloient net profit in sight to enable the
eompany to pay a dividend for some
yesrs to eome tbat one was declared. It
wijl.no doubt take some time to educate
the inveator op to the idea that mining
stock ean be parehaaed aa an iDtest-
ment. The fact of Mr. Gooderham being
president of the War Eagle CJompany,
and Hon. Geo. A. Cox, one of the directors, will do much towards creating confidence in the property. Tbe War Eagle
is now snipping one hundred tons of ore
daily, which enables it easily to pay a
monthly ditld.ftid of \% per cent In
October tbey wHl be able to double tbe
quaitity, ao A, if they *6 desire, tbey can
also double the dividend.

TREASURER CLEMENT'S REPLY
To Newspaper Statements Regarding
the K.L. G. Hospital.
WANT GOVERNMENT AID.
A. H. Clements, Director and Treasurer of tho Kootenay Lako General
Hospital was seen yesterday afternoon
in regard to the charges made in local
papers, that he had refused admission
to the hospital for a colored man
named Smith. Mr. Clements in explanation of the circumstanw said
that Mr. Hillyer came to him and said
that he wanted to get " Boss" Smith
into the hospital, as he was ill and in
destitute circumstances., In reply,
Mr. Clements asked if he had a certificate from the medical officer as required by the by-laws. Mr. Hillyer
replied that he had seen the Docto?
but had no certificate. Mr. Clements
theU stated that persokudly he waa opposed to the admission of colored
people to the hospital; but a^i he waa
only one in a directorate of twelve,
he (Mr. fiillyer) should see some of the
other directors and if they wished to
give the required order it would be all
right.
Mr. Hillyer then- asked whether
there was anything in the way of
bedding, etc., that could be got to
make Smith comfortable. To thia Mr.
Clements replied that if there wag anything in that line at the hospital, tha
was not in use, he had no doubt that
it could be procured.
The matter was then dropped ber
tween Mr. Hillyer and Mr. Clements,
until the articles appeared in the local
papers.*"-; . '.,.'���.
Mr. Clements still maintains .his
position in regard to the admission of
colored patients, but wishes it understood thatTin taking this poeition be ia
only voicing his own opinions and not
those of, any other member of the
board.
The rules of the hospital are that
before a patient can be .admitted, a
certificate must be obtained from the
medical officer stating that the patient
is in need of hospital treatment. This
certificate must then be countersigned
by two directors. It will thus be seen
that bad Mr. Clements been willing to
admit Smith he could not do so on his
own responsibility. He does not in
any way object to criticism.of his actions on tbe hospital board but wishes
that ths public should be fairly informed as to the Cruefacte of the case.
In tbe matter of the admission of
panper patients Mr. Clements further
states that, when Mr. Hillyer spoke bo
him in reference to the matter, be told
him to send in ,a communieaUpn so
* that it oould come before the board in
the ref��(|MP way, but no sucb communication Was ever received.
About three weeks ago there were
tail patients under treatment at tbe
hospital of whom no lees than nine
were being treated free, and the ��ver��
age ia about four free patients to one
pay patient. -������      -
