I Concord, N. H, June 18.��� Senator
{handler, in a signed statement iii I
fas evening's Monitor, takes a strong
aition in favor of a policy of congest in the war, with Spain, advocat-
|ig the capture even of the Queen
{agent and. King Alfonso, if possible,
fecause such a blow would be vital to
|ie enemy.    The Monitor says:
'Before the war we demanded noth-
lig of Spain except peace and freedom
|>r the Cubans. . We made no demands
to  Porto Rico or  the Philippines,
lat when the war came we  captured
Kanila and we are going to take Porto
jico, and with Hawaii's*.consent we
ave made  the  Sandwich  islands' an
ltpost^of our cause.    Our sailors  and
oldiers are  going   to   try to conquer
rerything in sight, even the   Canary
glands,   and perhaps Cadiz and Bar-
slona. The outcry against imperialism
&*, premature.   There is no danger that
e United States will become a seeker
world-wide empire, but Uncle Sam
tends  to  capture everything  Spain
as on land or ships or   subjects  that
be safely reached.   He  intends to
4ake Cuba free and Porto Rico a col-
^y of his, and to do what may seem
test when peace is concluded with the
hilippines  and all Spanish soil cap-
ired by his brave men.    He   intends
so to have coaling stations all around
^eWorldand enter upon anew career,
ot of imperialism, but of legitimate
(publican influence and   commerce in

time in their racing careers, Tom Linton of .Wales and Edward Taylor of
France met this afternoon at the Manhattan Beach track, and this time Linton was the victor. Taylor won the
first two matches, the distance being
50 kilometres, which took palce in

Washington, June 18.���Tho original
plans of campaign for the conduct of,
,the war against Spain will be adhered
to ami will be pushed with vigor and
energy. That decision was reached at
a war council held at the White House
today, at which were present President McKinley, Secretary Alger, Secretary-Long, General Miles, Assistant
Secretary Meikeljohir, Admiral Sicard
and Captain Mahan. There will be
some slight modifications, however,
made necessary by the changes which
havo occurred'since the ..beginning, of
hostilities.'but-they'will not affect the
general plan of operations. General
Miles returned from Florida with a
store of information respecting the
condition of, the troops, difficulties to
be expected during the progress;; of;
campaign, needs in the matterJof^trans^
portation and terminal facilities,.;
that will be freely availed of^to "correct
the'defects'of. the present system that
experience has developed. The general
was present during the council arid, in
fact, it was held as ii result of his arrival in Washington. The conference
was entirely harmonious.
The only reason that the commanding general did not visit th-e White
House yesterday was because of a desire on the president's part that his
war council board should have the
benefit of General Miles' recital of his
observations at first hands. The stories
that there has been''7friction between
General Miles and his official superiors
are pronounced to be absolutely iiiitrue,
dwdUtrelay.'s xpj^^
evidence of the fact that -the utmost
harmony characterized the.'relations
between the chief ;executive and ,the
military branch of the government.
There were of course;? some differences* of opinion among [those present
at.the war council, but., there has been
no disposition in any quarter to resist,
for an instant, any concision \vhich
has secured the approval of the president. The official declaration to the
effect ���that the campaign is to be
pushed with vigor does not necessarily
mean an immediate attack on Havana,
although such advice has been tendered. It does mean, however, that
the very best efforts are to be pnt forth
to put the army in a condition where
it can be tised with overwhelming
effect at any other point ,qr, points at
almost a moment's notice.
To this end the troops now in camp
are to be thoroughly trained and hardened, and when ,they leave the United
States their equipment will be the best
a soldier can have, fit for -any season,
cold or hot, wet or dry. With such
an army at command, numbering no
less than 100,000 men, the fate of Havana cannot long remain in doubt.
Meanwhile the "small expeflitionS-jiy,

ruptedly. When Santiago is captured
the" trained^regularswhcrlwiU idogth-Er

Rico. If all or most of them are needed
for the expedition ther^the provisional forces referred to by General
Shatter in his report will;:probably be
despatched immediately? from the
United States to garrison the town of
Santiago and relieve the regulars.
Probably a knowledge of ( some such
intention has led to the rumor which
found free currency today ito the effect
that 4000 men froni General Graham's
camp had been orderecL* to procged
immediately to reinforce ���? Shatter at
Santiago, making the passage on the
big ocean liners' Harvard? and Yale,

are now in Hampton Roads. As ii
matter of fact, Secretary Alger said
this afternoon that he had as yet given
no orders for. the sending of troops
away from Camp Alger, hor. had he
ordered any extensive movement elsewhere. Word came to theriavy department through the agency of the state
department that the Spanish Cadiz
fleet was still headed eastward. Today the basis of the report is not
known, but it is probably the ; skipper

reputation as Ornament. It was almost
half past 4 o'clock when ��� the 1 Icon
testants were in the hands of Starter
Fitzgerald, and then came a wearisome
wait. There were innumerable breaks,
and some of the horses suffered hard
treatment. Ben Holliday in particular
was very badly treated, for after
getting a hard rap in the ribs by
Tillo's heels he had to stand the same
treatment from Ornament, who seemed
to have, a spito against every horse ou
the track, and kicked hard when, anyone of them came near hini.
At last all came down together, and
they were off on their'journey one hour
exactly after they hart reached the
starting point. Tillo was the quickest
on his feet, and for an instant his feet
muzzles snowed in front, but ho was
not wanted there, and Clayton took
him back to the fifth position. Royal
Stag came next, followed by Helove,

Tillo was still rattling along in fifth
place attended by Don Deore, Helove
ar.d Ornament. But the Brooklyn winner seemed to be, overpowered by the
weight he was carrying, and was a
little, too far,out of it to have much
chance of winning. Ben Holliday,
too, was in the rear, while the others
were even then hanging out signals of
distress. The sole exception was Semper Ego, who was in the rear, but
seemed to be protected.
As they neared the three-quarter
pole Hamilton urged Ogden a bit and
as they went past the mark he was a
length to the good and setting a
quicker pace; Imp, too, began to show
her speed and shoved her head in front
of Royal Stag, while Cluyton, who was
picking his way carefully moved Tillo
into fourth place. At this time Ornament was actually in The last placo and
Sloan wasdriviug him hard. It was only
a short distance home and there seemed
no chance for him to win. Foot by
foot, however, Ornament cut down the
lead, and .when he had worked his way
up to eighth place Sloan evidently saw
it was useless and gave up a very badly
driven race. It was but a short drive
around the turn, and then their noses

to stop. As they straightened out for

last of the flying hoofs and was chasing the leaders rapidly.
There was but a furlong to go. In a

length in front of Semper Ego, who
snatched second place by a few strides
from Ogden. Don Deoro was a bad

Taken From the Body of a Ikead MesKert-
Ker Mho Attempted to Cross the Cuban Linen.��� Starvation Threaten* the
Yellow Fever at Guantanamo���An Inquiry Wanted.
Madrid, June 18.���According to
private telegrams from Cuba yellow
fever is raging among the American
marines encamped near the entrance
of -��� Gnantariamo bay, and several cases
,of the disease are reported to have occurred on the ships of' the squadron of
the American fleet. The telegram des
bribes the heat as terrible, and says
that the swampy condition of the
ground has prevented thus 'far the
"carrying on of milits^^b^iationsih

In the senate today the Marquis Car
dera denounced the "American
breaches of international law" in the
chamber of deputies. Senor Salmeron,
the republican leader, asked the gov-,
ernment to institute an inquiry in
order to more positively contradict the
reports that the bodies of American
marines killed at Guantanamo by the
Spanish troops had been mutilated, Senor Capidon, replied that
the reports were base: calumnies and
that an inquiry wm unnecessary.
Senor Salmeron gave notice that he
would interpolate the government concerning the expulsion from Canada of
Lieutenant Carranza, late naval attache
in Washington; and Senor Du Bdsc,
former Spanish charge d'affaires at
Washington, and requested that the
documents relating thereto be given to
tho chamber.

Spanish Think They Know American
Plans Against Santiago.
I Madrid, June 18.���It is confidently
believed that Admiral Camara's fleet
is going to Manila and that this will
prevent the despatch of American
troops there, or at least, will postpone
the loss of the Philippines. ���. Advices
from Cuba say that  General  Linuarea
is confident that the rainy season will
handicap the Americans, and he ex-
presess the belief- that the latter will
unite with, the Cubans and march
along the base of the mountains where
there are roads leading to Santiago,
while the American fleet will attack
the fortifications at the entrance of the
Camp McCalla, Outer Harbor of
Guantanamo, Friday, June 17, Noon,
via Kingston, Jamaica. Saturday, June
18.���The following intercepted report
from the Spanish military commander
ac Guantanamo was taken from the
body of an unfortunate messenger who
attempted to pass the Cuban lines, it
gives tlie official Spanish version of
the attack of the American fleet and
the capture of the outer harbor of
Guantanamo a week ago, und discloses the fact that starvation is facing
the Spanish troops in eastern Cuba.
The report reads:
; "Caimanera, June 13.
"To the General Commanding the Division of Santiago do Cuba: .
'' At da^yn ou Salvr.Iay several ships
appeared before the port of  Caimanera
and  fired grape  shot and all kinds of
projectiles on   the Place del  Este and
Casito Toro, until they  set  fire to tho
fort  on   the   Place del Este,   burning
the houses of   thc  pilots, which  were
occupied by a detachment of Americau
marines. The cannonading lasted with
more or less intensity   until  5 o'clock
in the  afternoon.    As   the   Place del
Este had only the muzzle-loading guns
and  sand  entrenchments, the detachment could do nothing before  the six
ships  were   firing on them  from all
sides, and they retired to Managua and
Cuzco hill, where  they  remain today
making' sorties  on   the beach.    From
that day the   soldiers occupied Punta
Caracoles observing the movements of
the ships  which occupy all the  outor
ports with   war  transports, a variablo
number of  armed  ships, other vessels
of war and number of merchant ships.
The   total   is not   less   than  four.   I
have also taken the Enanto passes, and
the vigilant gunboat   Mange  is here,
ready to fall on them where damage
can be done.   I  remain at Caimanera
and will only leave when  I think it
necessary.    I have not been able to antagonize" the American ships with ride
fire.   The forts,   Sangfile  and   Terror
fired their pieces of artillery, but their
effects   are   interfered   with  by   the
shortness of range, or when the ships
retired to  the  center of -the channel
and took a position  in   the middle of
the bay, they would   not have stopped
answering the fire, which the enemy's
ships were keeping up with impunity.
Sandoval has  not over seven rounds of
armor projectiles and  Caimanera battery did not fire, reserving its fire un-
i��l   the   ships   entered   the   channel,
which is in its guns' reach.   I am told
tliat the  insurgents at Baracoa havo
come down to   Signabos, being apparently greatly pleased at noting that tho
American squadron has taken posses-
siou of the outer bay as if for a liase of
operations, the "American ships having
anchored as' if   in one of   their own
ports.    Since   Saturday the ships havo
cut the cables which  are  at   the entrance and in thecenter of the harbor,
and have not been able to reach them.
But they have not again molested me,
except with two cannon shots on Monday. It appears that the Americans are
preparing   to   plant   the   harbor with
mines or to  place  their ships so as to
disembark   troops  and  make del Este
their favorite place.
"If this turns out to be the case, aud
that I have been the first to call your
attention to it, I would suggest that
some of our vessels should come here.
I am continuing to serve half rations
of everything, and in that way I shall
be able to reach to the end of the
month only, especially on bread. I
have no flour of any kind, as I have
previously said, and I havq, no way of
getting any, as tkere has been no grain
for some time past. We are equally
short of quinine in tho hospital.. How:
ever, I haye taken possession of the
private drug stores and' will have
enough until the end of the month.
The town is suffering from privation.
On Saturday we had only two men
maimed. At Crigo Morro the cable
house was riddled with shells, but i
still stands, and if the Americans will
abandon the port, which I doubt,
everything possible will be done to reestablish communication, to which end
I have written already. Today there is
in the harbor a large armored vessel���

full scores given \n another column ,
Nelson succeded, in winning the
match. Tliere was -not time for t!Qt K
inniigs to be played out, and perhaps
it was just as well for Nelson, for the
Rosslanders, who were palpably short
of practice, improved a great deal in
the second innings, and at times did
not treat the Nelson bowling with
proper respect.
At the beginning of the war the
United States disavowed all intention
of territorial aggrandizement, assert*
ing that their object in fighting was
to free the Cubans from their oppressors, for it was noticeable that the
Maine incident was kept in the background, and though it undoubtedly
precipitated hostilities, yet it was not
officially put forward as the casus
belli.    No doubt the American  people
' thought they were sincere in their
declaration, though dispassionate observers predicted that in the event of
success they would be unable to resist
the temptation of conquest. Already
arrangements have been made to appoint a governor to the Philippines,
while thc intention of seizing and
holding the Ladrones, the Carolines
and Porto Rico has been announced.
The latest development of the craze
is the renewed  movement in  favor of
the  annexation  of '' Hawaii,'' and its
supporters  now  urge  the measure on
the   grounds   of    military   necessity.
Tho inner workings of  the intrigue
which   ousted   Queen   Lioukalani   of
Hawaii from  the  throne   and   established a republican form of government
have never been made public in their
entirety, but enough of the transaction
is known to stamp the whole affair as
a stain upon the history of tbe United
States.    The revolution wasjeffected by
one  Dole, who undoubtedly  had the
countenance  of  President ��� Harrison,
the wishes  and feelings of   the populace being entirely  disregarded.   Ever
since then there has  been an agitation
on foot  to   annex   Hawaii, but it haa
hitherto    been    unsuccessful.    Levelheaded  and   f.iir-minded   Americans
have always been opposed to it.    Now
another attempt is being made, and so
far with more success.    The promoters
of the scheme are taking advanatge of
the war fever now prevailing, aud urge
the  adoption of  their  plans by representing annexation to have   become a
military necessity, with the result that
the  motion  has   passed  the house of
representatives, though   it remains to
- be seen whether - the senate will "look
upon it with equal favor.
A few of the cooler heads and more
enlightened and patriotic newspapers
are still protesting against it, for they
see what others do not, that this
acquisition of outside territory by the
United States will involve them in
disputes and questions from which
they at present are free. They will
have to come out of their isolation and
take part in the affairs of the world,
and to do this means a large increase
in their fleet and standing army with
a corresponding increase in expenditure. It also entails the abandonment
of a strict application of the Monroe
doctrine and many other ideals hitherto
dear to the Americans, and those who
foresee the probable consequences fear
that   America   is taking   great   risks
without corresponding.advantages.

For the first time in the history of
the United States the exports of manufactured goods for the past year
have exceeded the imports, being for
the ten months ending with May
$40,000,000 more than the imports.
China appears to be awakening
from her sleep of centuries, and according to onr despatches of yesterday
morning there is to be a complete reorganization of her army and navy under British officers. If her territory is
not all gobbled up by European powers
before such reorganization is complete,
the Celestial empire may yet astonish
the world, as Japan has already done.
It is estimated that if the Hispano-
American war lasts a year it will cost
the United States $600,000,000. This
estimate will be made more readily
comprehensive by the statement that
the expenditure will be at the rate of
12,000,000 per day for each working
day in the year. The other ordinary
expenses of the government in the way
of civil service, paying pensions, etc.,
amount to over $1,000,000 per day.
Montreal Gazette: Lord Wolseley's
name is spoken of in connection with
the governor generalship. It is needless to say that the Canadian peoi 13
would be glad to welcome him back to
the country where the beginning of
his wider fame was won. It is a little
doubtful, though, if they will get the
chance. The commander-in-chief is
not as well paid as the governor general, bnt for a soldier his office is the
highest prize in the world, and Lord
Wolseley may desire no other honor.
, Ottawa Journal: The report that the
present commander-in-chief, Lord
Wolseley of Cairo, has been offered and
is considering the appointment of gov-
enor general in succession to .Lord
Aberdeen, will be most welcome news
to Canadian militiamen. ' His appointment would be of undoubted.benefit directlv and indirectly to the
militia, while it would be singularly
appropriate that a military officer,
onej of the most distinguished now
serving in any army in the world, who
obtained ihis first separate. command
in the Pominion���Red River expedition, 1870���should eventually come
back as governor general and commander-in-chief. Tt is sincerely to he
hoped that the rumoifwill prove true.
Toronto World:. It is.to be hoped
tbat licafl. Wolseley will accept the
offer, for bis appointment would be received with intense enthusiasm by the
Canadian people. Canada knows Lord
Wolseley and he knows Canada. He
was once commander-in-chief of the
Canadian military . forces tpid he was
the most popular military commander
we ever had. . It might be almost-said
that he was the. only popular commander, for newly all bis successors
have bad aomo misunderstandings witb
tbe Canadian volunteers. He led a
Canadian regiment to tbe Northwest
during tbe Red River rebellion, and
the volunteers used to say that they
would go through fire and. .water for
him. He liked onr volunteers as well
as_ they liked bim, .and.after- leaving
Canada he was reported to bave said
that he wonld rather have one regiment of Canadian volunteers than two
of any other nationality. . Lord Wolseley will notice some great changes ij
he comes to .Canada as onr next governor general Perhaps what will
seem most strange to him will be to
find the bustling modern cily of Winnipeg where Fort Garry stood when he
was there, but Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and many other Canadian cities
of the east have grown greatly, and
the wonderful newjeity of Vancouver
has arisen ont of nothing on tbe Pacific coast The regiment he led at
Fort Garry had to march all the way
by the Dawson route, for there was no
railway then. He will no doubt be
greatly interested in the mining developments of that rough country north
of Lake Superior through which he led
his troops. Almoet everywhere in
Canada Lord Wolseley will find something new..

Nelson Defeats Rossland by 44 Runs���
An Interesting Game.
The cricket match played on the
Nelson grounds yesterday between
Rossland aud Nelson resulted in a win
for the Nelson team by 44 ruus.
For the visitors W. de V. Lemaistre
played splendid circkefc in the first,
innings for 85; giving only one chance
at 15, out of a total score of 66. Marsh
(captain) put together 14 not out iu
splendid style. In their second tliey
did much better. Parker played frccly
for 39, and Marsh again ran up n score
of 23. DeVeber and Hamilton had
played for 9 and 7 respectively and appeared well set when time was called.
For the home team McKenzie \s 20
after giving two chances, Senklers' 18,
E. G. Wilson's 20 and Criddle's 18 not
out helped greatly to swell the score.
Haines' played good cricket for 7.
The fielding of both teams was weak
for want of practice. Catches made by
the Wilson.brothers and sharp fielding
by Elliott, Senkler and Wilson were
features of the game.
For the visitors Beecher, Grogan and
L. de Veber mado some very fine

Not to the fact alone that our lemonade
is made by an old maid is our reputation and popularity due, but because
in tho first place we know how to
make pure, heathful beverages, and in
the second, we do make such. Nine
years of increasing favor with onr
patrons has not made us forget to bo
obliging and as desirous of pleasing as
ever. Our ever unvarying aim is to
be unrivaled in the production of first-
class goods. Our success is shown by
the rapidity with which we came to
the front, and continuing to remain
the leading producers of soft drinks in

The Former to  Challenge the Latter
to a Baseball Match.
Tbe baseball fever is extending in
Nelson. The latest aspirants for honors on the diamond are the employes
of the different printing offices of the
city. Members of the "art preservative" have met'and informally come to
the conclusion that  they can wipe the
i earth with a nine from any other particular calling in   this  vicinity.    But
; their preference extends in the direction of the cigarrnakers as foemen
worthy of their steel, and the gentlemen who roll Havanas and Santiago de
Cubas may confidently look forward
to the receipt of a challenge from thc
printers within tbe next few days.

O'er earth's greatest Empire the union jack floats, ���
And this proudly due, 'to the use of rolled oats,
While war news it thunders! on the winds it flies riot,
That states' battles for freedom, are won by this diet. -
With great Britain, the states and rolled oats in alliance,
To all other nations, we could bid bold defiance.
No union in Europe, pur position could mar,
If the oats be well branded, with brackman & ker.
Remember "dargai," and remember "findlater,"
Whose "pap" was rolled oats, from the hands of his mater
And "hobson," the gallant, each patriot soul fills,
Oh ! such men are the outcome, of "NATIONAL MILLS"
Rolled Oats! islands rich, like the Phillippines gain,
And National Stuff, will free Cuba from pain.
Porto Rico is settled, as one of war's fines,
While our Cereals well rolled, secure "Carolines,"
If our brand of Rolled Oats, had diet been of Spain,
That country with honor, had guarded the Maine,
Then proclaim with loud timbrels, and sound it afar,
B. & K. National Oats, will an end put to war.

Alger nntl Miles Have A Citutrrencc Wilh
the President.���War Plans to be Ani-
plllled-War .Department Will Give
Full Accomodation for Future Call*.
Washington, June 18.���Secretary
Alger accompanied by Major General
Miles went over to the White House
this morning to interview the president. Thc secretary was indignant at
tho published reports that the president
and himself were dissatisfied with the
courso adopted by General Miles, and
had decided to relieve him of the command of the army. Thc secretary said
in tho presence of General Miles to a
representative of the Associated Press:
"There is not a word of truth in it.
As a matter of fact, the Avhole purpose
of the administration in bringing
General Miles to Washington at this
time, is to consult with him as to the
future conduct of the campaign.''
It is plain that the campaign itself
has grown far away from the original
lines on which it was drawn, and recent developments had led to a belief
on the part of tho president that the
plans might be amended somewhat
with benefit. The war department is
profiting by the experience gained in
the organization and despatch of General Shatter's expedition, by the concentration of troops to the great
camps, by development of weak places
iu the staff system, and considered
that future operations will be conducted with a view to avoiding friction, improving the methods of equipping the volunteers and generally
facilitating the organization of an
effective army. It has been suggested,
that owing to the heavy calls for
troops, which have far exceeded the
number originally believed to be
sufficient, there will be occasion to
issue another call for volunteers. Having in mind the lengithjbf time required to develop raw 'material into
seasoned soldiers, as revealed by exr
perience at Chickainagau and Gamp
Alger, there is no doubt that the president will be forewarned in this matter, and will take steps to increase it.
Before any effort is made to raise
more troops the war department will
see to it that the amplest camp facilities are provided and the equipment
ready for the men.
The material secured under another
call would not only be absolutely
green, but wholly without military
equipment of any kind. The preparations being made by tho war department to meet any possible demands in
the future, as revealed in the very
thorough report of the board headed
by Major Hopkins, aud appointed to
look after suitable company sites, undoubtedly has given rise to the reports
that additional military camps are to
be established. The department has
put things in trim to establish at short
notice several different camps, but so
far it has not ordered any troops to
them, and is not likely to, unless there
should be a future call for volunteers.
The jury found the man guilty, and
the justice at once ordered the man to
stand up for sentence. He delivered
a, long lecture to the murderer upon
the heinousness of his crime, and
warned him never to appear in his court
again upon such a charge. Then he
impressively pornounced sentence���$5
and costs���and dismissed court, his
fine face beaming with pride and satisfaction over his oratorical effort.
Before another Mexican justice of
the peace who dispensed his idea of
law in southern New Mexico there
came a Mexican man and maid to be
tied in wedlock. The judgej looked
them over critically and ' apparently
doubts about the compatibility of their
tempers, for he put a time limit upon
the combination, and as he pronounced
the words that made them man and
wife, he added with emphasis, "for
the space of two years only. "As they
went away he told them if they were
dissatisfied with their venture before
that time to come back and he would
divorce them for the same fee.
One venerable disciple of the law,
who for a long time has balanced the
scales of justice in the town of Las
Cruces, is famous through all that
region for his remarkable decisions.
Before him a Mexican boy, through his
father, sued an American rancher for
$60, which he claimed as wages duo
for three months' work. Between a
Mexican and an Ameri can, justice can
always see that the right, is always on
the side of the suitor of his own
nationality, and no matter what the
evidence, he can usually find some way
of making his decisions express sympathy. In this case the defendant
proved that the lad had been hired to
do chores for his board, and that it had
been expresscly stipulated that he was
not to receive money ; payment. The
justice considered the case with frowning brows and laboring brains for
sometime. Then he announced that
the plaintiff had failed to prove his
*' But,'' said he, '' the boy is a poor
boy, and it would be a shame if he did
not get something out of his suit. He
is entitled to something, and I hereby
award him the defendant's black mare
that is tied to the frout of the door."

A  City Marshal  and the  Mayor Kill
Each Other.
Brunswick,�� Mo., June 18.���Details
of last night's tragedy, in which
Mayor J. H. Heisel shot and killed
Richard Ashby, the city marshal, who
in turn fatally wounded the mayor, are
comingl to light. W. J. Heisel,
brother of themayor, was standing in
a saloon when Marshal Ashby and his
sou Joseph entered. Both grabbed
their fists, both claiming that he had
beaten and phoked one of his sisters.
Marshal Ashby had a revolver iu his
W. J. Heisel finally broke loose from
the Ashbys and ran out of the saloon.
Mayor Heisel, who was present, tbett
took a hand in the fracas. The mayor
and the marshal begun firing at each
other with the result as above stated.
At the coroner's inquest today the
evidence did not show who fired the
fisrt shot, but it was said that Ashby
fired the last and fell dying.
Madrid, June 18.���It is said here
that Captain General Augusti has resigned the military leadership at Manila, and also that the capitulation of
that place may be signed by a person
of less importance than the captain
general of the Philippines.
Wild,   Weird    and    Wonderful���Rare
Ideas of Right.
Among the wild, weird and wonderful things to be found in the southwest
are the decisions sometimes made by
Mexican justices of the peace, says the
Philadelphia Times. Most of the justices in this territory are Mexicans. A
few of them are men of sufficient intelligence and education to know something about the first principles of law,
but most of them are very meagerly
One such administrrator of the law
holding oflice in northern Mexico decided that it was his duty to try a
man who had been charged with murder. Accordingly he impannelled a
jury cf  six persons and tried the case.
General Lord Roberts, known and
loved by Tommy Atkins as " Bobs,''
who is slated to succeed Lord Wolseley
as commander-in-chief of the British
army in the event of the latter coming
ot Canada as governor general, is a
soldier by birth and breeding. He was
born at Cawnppre, in India, in 1832,
and is the son of General Sir Abraham
Roberts, a-distinguished Indian officer
of the days of the East India company.
The younger Roberts entered the Bengal artillery in 1851, was at the siege
of Delhi, tbe relief of Lucknow and
other important engagements of the
mutiny. He won the Victoria cross
during these operations. He took part
in the Abyssinian war in 1868 and
heavy frontier fighting in 1871-2,
During the Afghan war of 1878 he
commanded as major general of the
force which stormed the Afghan position on Peiwar Kotul. It was, however, during the second war after
Cavagnari's murder at Kabul and the
uprising of the Afghans against the
British garrisons that Roberts gained
fame. Kandahar was besieged and it
was feared would fall unless relieved.
Roberts -with 10,(100 men started to
march through Afghanistan to its relief,, and in three weeks he reached
Kandahar and administered a crushing
defeat to Ayub Khan. The march is
o^e cf the greatest recorded in history,
and when Roberts was raised to the
peerage a few years ago he chose as
his title the words "Roberts of Kandahar. ". He was commander-in-chief in
India from 1885.to 1893, and since 1895
has commanded the forces in Ireland,
with the rank of field marshal. He is
a noted author on milistary subjects,
and immensely popular both in military circles and among the people.
London journalists who took note of
the jubilee cheering said the favorites
of the people were in the order named
���the Queen, Bobs and Laurier.
The Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition is now going on at
Omaha, Neb., having been opened to
the public on June 1. In connection
with the exposition a British and Cana
diau-Americanclub bas been organif ed
for the purpose of extending courtesies
tojthose of British and Cauadian extraction who may visit Omaha during the
summer. Tne club, as its name implies, is composed of persons who
formerly lived in Great Britain or in
some of her colonies and who are now
residents of the United States, and it
has been thought that much good will
be accomplished by such an organization at this time, owing to the great
influx of visitors from abroad,, as the
exposition is attracting world wide attention. (,
The exposition has been planned and
carried out on a very large scale, and
while not so extensive as the World's
fair at Chicago in 1893, it yet. in some
respects will eclipse that enterprise.
The Canadian government is well
represented in International hall, and
some Canadian and British manufacturers have indicated their intention of having their wares on exhibition. ���������"'...'

Iu the house of commons at Ottawa
a day or two before prorogation the
item was being discussed of $500,000
to maintain a force of mounted police
in the Yukon provisional district. Sir
Wilfred Laurier made a statement as
to the strength of the force in that
country and as to the work it is doing.
In the month of August last there
were 40 men in the Yukon. The gold
discoveries and the consequent increase
in population made it necessary to increase this to 100 men, and then gov-,
eminent determined to increase it to
250 men. There are now in the Yukon
239 officers and men distributed as follows : Dawson, two officers and 21 constables; Forb Cudahy, one officer nnd 9
constables.; Summit of the White Pass,
one officer and 20 men; Summit of
Chilkoot Pass, one officer and 20 men;
betweeil Lake Bennett and Dawson,
several detachments embracing six
officers, 27 constables and 27 special
constables, interpreters, scouts and dog
drivers; Dalton Trail, one officer and
12 men ;-Stikine river, two officers
and 20 constables and 4 special constables, interpreters and dog drivers;
Edmonton route, one officer two constables and three scouts.
The force will. be increased to 250
strong. At the customs offices which
have been established at the summits
of White;- and - Chilkoot passes duties
aggregating $200,000 have been collected. It is reported that up to the 6th
inst. 18; 000 people have passed over
the Chilkoot pass,: 7000 over the White
pass, and that 2000 paid duty at Tagish
before the customs offices at the summits were- opened. There are over
1000 tents' at Lake Bennett, and 31 log
houses; four steamers are on the
stocks, and about 1400 small boats are
in course of construction. Sawmills
have been established to furnish lumber tor the purpose. The detachment
ifor duty on Dalton trail reached Canadian territory on March 8 last, established a. camp there and hoisted the
British flag. '^______
