Cuba is officially denied, authorities
assert that even if it were true it
would be unimportant, as the Spanish
army would give a good account of
itself. It is believed that the question
of supplies, so far as the peninsula is
concerned, is settled at least until
October.

Off United States Camp, Guantanamo Bay, Sunday Noon, via Kingston, Jamaica, June 13, 11:30 a. m. ���
When the Associated Press despatch
boat left Guantanamo bay early this
morning, after the 13 hours skirmish
between the United States marines under Lieutenant Colonel Huntington
and the Spanish guerilla's, it was expected that the fighting would be renewed. The Marblehead -was landing
reinforcements and nothing had been
heard from tho advance picltets" under
Lieutenant Wehdel C. Neville and
Lieutenant Shaw. At 9 o'clock the
firing was again renewed by the Spanish, who appeared off the camp on the
edge of a small island about a mile tq
the northeast. It was promptly returned by 13 rilies and a, three-inch
field gun, and in a short time all signs
of the enemy had disappeared.
Colonel Huntington then sent to the
landing for a second three-inch gun,
which wis dragged up the hill and
placed in position ou tho summit"
Tho skirmish lines thrown around thc
camp kept up a popping all the morning, but with not much result. Meanwhile thc Marblehead left the harbor
and throw a few shells into the woods.
To the great delight of the marines iu
thc ramp, Lieutenants Neville and
Shaw with 30 men of Company ,D . re-.'
turned in good shape, but much, exhausted by 18 hours of, - picket. ,-iluty.,
One mail, Sergeant Smith of Company
K,'' had been shot through the .abdomen
h'tid instantly killedl * During most of
the night aiid day ;Licutenants Neville
and Shaw had , been " surrounded by
much superior forces', but both' men and
officers behaved: splendidly, ��� and although ,the firing of ,the Spaniards was'1
constant and heavy, Lieutenant:Ncv-
ille's detachment held its own, inflicting much more loss than it sustained.
At least five' Spaniard's' are -known to
have been killed, and as Lieutenant
Neville's mon kept up a steady fire
throughout the night ��� and the enemy
was not;a great distance, it is believed
that the Spanish casualties were heavy.
The battleship Texas arrived this
morning and sent ashore 40 marines
and two 'automatic Colt guns as reinforcements. The Marblehead also sent
an additional small detachment. Private Bartholomew McCown of Company D will lose his hand, which was
shattered by a Mauser bullet. Amputation will be necessary. The Marble-
head's pilot, who was shot thorugh the
leg while guidiug_the cruiser out of
the harbor this morning, holds the
rank of colonel in tlie Cuban service.
SPAIN  WILL   YIELD.
Providing the Peaco Proposals Do Not
Emanate From America.
Brussels, June 13.���Tho special Madrid correspondent of the Petit Bien
of this city telegraphs an interview
which he claims to have hnd witli
Senor Merino, the private secretary of
tho Spanish premier Senor Sagasta, in
which the secretary is quoted as having formally declared'that the Spanish
government will now accept any peace
proposal which is submitted "on the
express conditiiou that it does not
emanate from the enemy." But the
premier's secretary is said to have
added:
"Tho international mediation wliich
would be especially welcomed upon
the part of Spain would be ia the case
of the initiative being taken by prance
or Austria. "      ���    -	
FINAL INSTRUCTIONS.

Jamaica, June 9, ���-The Yankee and St.
Louis" cufTthe cable at Guantanamo, CO
miles east of Santiago yesterday aftcr-
non and the city is believed to be
finally cut off froiii. communication
with the outer world. The Marblehead 'fired at a, small Spanish gunboat,
wheh returned - the fire, the old fashioned forts joining in the engagement. The gunboat retreated into the
harbor and the forts were silenced by
the Marblehead. It is not. believed
that the Spanish gunboat was struck
as the range was too great.
The Marblehead and Yankee returned to th'e blockade tonight. The
steam launches which uow form a
picket line to guard against a torpedo
boat attack reported yesterday that
Spaniards were apparently attempting
to repair the batteries damaged by the
bombardment of Monday. Rear Admiral Sampson thereupon said ho believed that half, if uot more, of the.
enemy's guns had been dismounted.
When asked if he did not think the
Spaniards had deserted their batteries
early during the bombardment ho replied: "Yes, I am sure they did. Thej'
could not stand that terrific fire. ""
ENGLAND   SQUEEZED.
' London,''June' 13.���The editorials in
the morning papers express satisfaction
that the threatening dispute in the
Nigar valey has been arranged. They
confess, however, that M. Hauotaux,
the French foreign minister, has made
an excellent bargain for France, some
of them sorrowfully reproaching Lord
Salisbury will allowing England to be
'' over-squeezed."'
SPANISH   CONFIDENT.
Madrid, June ,13.���A semi-official
note issued today emphatically contradicts all the American reports of
operations in Cuba. It even denies
that the American forces effected a
landing at Guaiitannmo bay or elsewhere.

Washington^ Juno 13.���The first
army of invasion of Cuba is now well
on its way, 32 transports bringing 15,-
000 officers and men convoyed by battleships, cruisers and gunboats and
auxiliary * craft, Ki in number, having
actually sailed from Key West at daybreak this morning. An authoritative
statement to this effect was made at
the war department today, setting at
rest all reports that the expedition
was on its way or had landed last
week. The authorities made the announcement for the reason that the
time of secrecy is now past, as the
scout boats made sure that the path
was clear before it, and no possible
menace could couic from the Spanish
ships or troops, even should the enemy
know tliat our forces were now aid -
vancng. By Thursday at tho latest
thc transports will be off Santiago and
a large American army will make its
landing on Cuban soil.
Admiral Sampson has cleared the
way for this undertaking and ��� little
clanger is apprehended in going ashore.
It will be after that when the advance
is made that the aetual dramatic developments may be expected. By that
lime it is likely the American commanders will be in direct cable communication, wiih the authorities here.
Admiral Sampson has taken the short
end of the cable lauding at,Guautan-
iuno, and a forco of cable experts are
rapidly restoring thc line to working
order. ' The progress of the work has
been so satisfactory that one of the
leading state department officials says
it is hoped that direct communication
will bo established by Thursday. Tho
point of landing has been so chosen
that there is little danger of an interruption from tho Spanish forces, but
should they attempt to make trouble
Admiral Sampson will insure ample
protection until the troops can take
care of themselves.
The Spanish Cadiz fleet is almost as
much of a mystery to naval officers here
as was Admiral . Cervera's flying
squadron during the two weeks immediately preceding his inglorious bottling up at Santiago. Today a report
came that the squadron was unfit
for sea. That would havo been credited except that the department has
information as latoas last Saturday to
the effect that the squadron is already
at sea. The war board is taking 110
unnecessary chances of a surprise, aud
by means of scouts has provided for
securing timely wJirning of the approach of any hostile battleship.
TO  INVADE CUBA.
.=*= -Washington,��� Juue-lSr���The-firs t "di-
vision of the United States troops to
begin the invasion of Cuba sailed from
Key-West at daylight this morning.
The expedition comprises 755 officers
and 14,567 enlisted men, all under
command of General Shafter. A large
force of transports conveyed the troops
under cover of a strong squadron of
warships.
BRITAIN AND FRANCE.
Paris, June 13.���The Niger boundary
dispute in which English papers and
politicians have seen a war cloud has
boon practically settled. A convention
covering all the subjects of dispute is
ready for signatures. Franco gets two
commercial deports, on the lower Niger
for outlets for French trade with
Uppe Dahomey, while Great Britain's
gain consists of territory on the gold
coast.
LAST   ASYLUM   GONE.
CONFLICTING VIEWS.
The  American Landing Is Denied in
Spain.
London, June 13.���The Madrid correspondent of the Daily Mail telegraphs from Madrid as follows :
There is an extremely bad impression current as to the outcome of
events. Business men are inclined to
think that the war will bc short, probably only last another month. Military
men hold the opposite view, considering that Spain can put much reliance
on the elements. Captain Aunon,''minister of marine, telegraphed from Cadiz
that the recruiting of Admiral Camara's  squadron   was   being acceler-

as  claimed  by  her   commander, it is
, impossible for her to put to sea, and to

French get the country of Say to Ho,
and also Gurnian. Beyond this they
grant 30 years leases of .bonded areas at
Liabe and facilities for transit in bond.
This is to secure the benefit of the
navigable portion of the river. Iu return they give'30 years of reciprocity
for tlie whole west coast colonies from
the Liberiau frontier to the Niger. In
respect to the, gold coast the French
evacuate Wa and probably Puma and

A SETBACK  FOR   CANADA.
Canada has received a distinct aud
most regrettable setback through the
failure of the scheme for the proposed
Canadian fast Atlantic service. Canada was for a long time dwarfed by
her big neighbor, thc United States,
and now that, notwithstanding the
drawbacks of insufficient capital and
population to develop her immense territories, she has fought her way to her
rightful position in the markets of
the mother country, it is additionally
disappointing that this attempt to put
her finally on a level with the United
States has been even temporarily frustrated.
The   primary   cause  of  the scheme
not being consummated was  the failure of Messrs. Petersen & Co., the contractors, to raise the necessary $6,250, -
000  capital, and  the  failure  on tlieir
part is due, it is said, to the exorbitant
demands of  the  promoters and underwriters. This scheme was of more importance to Canada than is apparent at
first  sight.    The   fast    trans-A tlantic
lines running into New York now get
the pick of the passenger traffic.    This
may seem a small thing, but  it means
that many wealthy visitors who might
otherwise come to Canada aro diverted
to^the United States,and ano inconsiderable   sum   is    thus   annually  lost.
Again, the better class of   settlers, attracted by the quick passage and superior accommodation  of  the  New York
lines, land on the other side, where the
various attractions  and  advantages of
the United  States are glowingly pictured for them, and  thus many who
eome over without  any fixed plans are
lost to Canada.    Nor is  this  the  only
disadvantage. Letters  and  parcels directed to England from Canada and for
which despatch is required, luve to be
endorsed "via  New York," and  this
fact undoubtedly  impresses people in
Great  Britain who  are  unacquainted
with  Canada   with    erroneous   ideas
of our dependence on the United States
and our resources   generally.    Quicker
transport for  freight, too, is  urgently
required and considering  the  shorter
passage from ~Moiitreal7 iOslfblot7on
the civilization and progress of Canada
that we cannot vie with America in this
respect. The great Canadian lines,
too, the Canadian Pacific and the
Grand Trunk, are large losers annually
"by the present system.
It will he the sincere hope of all
Canadians that a similar plan will be
immediately revived, not to be prematurely set at naught by the rapacity
cf company promoters and underwriters. Those last are necessary evils and
should receive adequate remuneration,
bat they too often scandalously abuse
f.ieir position, sometimes, as in this
case, hurting themselves as well as
those directly interested in the enterprise.
In another column will be found an
account of the recount of tho votes
polled last Thursday for the electric
light company. The recount has not
in any Avay altered the result, but it
cannot be said to have been held in
vain since it brought to light the very
lax way iu which the affair was
earned on. It appears that the returning officer did not count the number of ballot papers he originally received, thus there was no means of
checking the papers accurately. It is
to be hoped that on aiiy future occasions of this kind such disgracefully
slovenly methods will not prevail. In
this connection it may be remarked
that we hope the finance committee,
when they meet the electric light company's  officials, will  not fail to take
advantage of their power to appoint an
auditor to examine the company's
books, and thus remove one of the
great popular objections to the by-law.
If they do not, they must not be surprised if various skeptical persons draw
their own conclusions.
In connection with Premier Turner
and the Golden Twins episode it is instructive to recall the action of Mr.
Mundella, the president of the board
of trade during the last premiership of
the late Mr. Gladstone. Mr. Mundella
was an honorary director of a New
Zealand company that fell upon evil
days. Though, so far as we recollect,
there was no imputation of fraud
against the company, and though Mr.
Mundella's connection with the company was well known to have never
beeu more than a nominal oue, yet he
resigned volntarily aud at once upou
hearing the news, with the entire apJ
proval of his colleagues aud of tho
press of both parties. It is very much
to be regretted that Premier Turner
has not the same nice sense of honor
and the same keen appreciation of the
fact that,ministers, like Caesar's wife,
must be above suspicion.
We hope thc council will soon lind a
way out of the difficulty in connection
with the finding of a new permanent
dumping ground. While nobody is
apparently to blame for the present
condition of affairs, it is not one that
should be allowed to last for a moment
longer than is absolutely necessary.
TURNER'S EXPLANATION.
With reference to an editorial in oiir
last issue on "Ministerial Promoters,"
the following article from the last
issue of the Daily News-Advertiser of
Vancouver may be of interest to onr
readers:
"We are glad to note that the Victoria Colonist, speaking on authority
for the Hon. Mr. Turner states iv. an
article quoted elsewhere in our columns that he and Mr. Pley had nothing whatever to do personally, nor had
they any knowledge of the circumstances attending the floating Of the
New Golden Twins, Limited. We
felt persuaded that such would be
found to be the case as regards both
gentlemen. But indirectly they are.
notwithstanding Mr. Turner's attempt
to evade such liability, very unfortunately concerned in the matter; as directorial colleagues of theirs on-the
board of the Klondyke and Columbian
Gold fields, Limited, against whose
doubtful methods the premier and his
colleagues have oft-times wanred on
the highest financial authority, are
behind the New Golden Twins promotion. We still, therefore, regard it as
absolutely necessary for the premier
and his colleagues to part from such
company associates, in the interest
alike of themselves and the Province,
whose credit meanwhile stands much
at risk by such continued connections
of theirs. Hence we greatly regret that
the news was apparently iiieorrec, tliat
they had some short time since parted
company with such a body of promoters. The Hon. Mr. Turner has in
the meantime done something in the
matter, that is, so far as it goes, commendable enough, in that he has cabled
his associates in London, demanding
an investigation of the scandal, which
it is stated on the authority of a reply
telegram, is about to be made.
"But we repeat that apart from the
present instance, there is superabundant reason for the prompt withdrawal
of the premier and his colleague from
any connection with an organization,
of which other leading directors have
shown themselves to be utterly reckless
in misrepresenting important facts
concerning the general opportunities
bf their extraordinarily boomed concern. A veritable Munchausen could
scarcely surpass the imaginative record
thus made on behalf of the Klondyke
and Coliiihbiaii~Gbldfield^,= tiisipd;''^

day morning at tho city offices. The
recount was held at the instance of 11.
M. Macdonald, who was acting ou bo-
half of several citizens who had interested thenuiclves in tlie matter. There
wero present J. K fiirachan, tlie returning officer. R. M. .Macdonald, H.
Selcus, J, Fred Hume and Jchn Elliot.
The official statement signed by the
returning officer showed that , he had
received 200 ballots, aud that of these
08 were cast for the by-law, 15 against
it, while S)cwere spoilel.
An inspection of the ballot papers
showed that of the 98 marked "for the
by-law," oue should have been, le-
jected, as the word "yes" was written
in the space opposite "for the bylaw." One of these had a simple
stroke instead of the usual cross; another had the correct cross, but a pencil line was drawn through the words
"for the by-law," while the,third had
a cross in each space, but the cross in
the space "for the by-law"* was intended to be cancelled by pencil strokes
through it.
These, however, would iu no caso
make any difference, for if the irregular vote for the by-law were disallowed, and the irregular votes against
the by-law allowed, the numbers would
stand 142 to 1)4, or exactly the required
majority of three-fifths.
Where the unused ballot papers were
counted, however, a very grave error
appeared. Although iii his statement
the returning officer stated he had received 200 ballots, only 195 could bo
accounted for, viz. : 98 for the by-law,
4 against the by-law, 3 spoilt ballot
papers and 53 unused ones. The returning officer accounted for this by
saying that while the blocks of ballot
papers were supposed to contain 100
each, the number was only roughly estimated by measuring the thickness of
the blocks, and that he himself had not
counted the ballot papers received.

THE   CITY COUNCIL.
(d10
The Loan  By-laws Formally Adopted
���Routine  Business.
At the meeting of the city council
yesterday afternoon the mayor took tha
chair, with Aldermen Hillyer, Madden
and Gilker present.
The city engineer asked for more time
to report on thc powder magazine,
as his calculations were not completed.
A letter was then read from G. E.
Wilson ou behalf of the owner of the
Klondyke hotel, asking for permission
to erect a fire-escape with landings hi
front of his hotel and projecting over
the sidewalk. It transpired that balconies had already been erected, and
that the applicant wished to connect
these with an iron ladder as the only
possible way of providing a means of
escape from the house in case o: lire.
Permission was granted.
Mrs. Mallette,of the Kootenay hotel,
asked permission to'erect a balcony on
her hotel over the sidewalk, the balcony to be 24 feet long and 6 feet wide
and supported on brackets. Permission
was granted provided that the plans
were first submitted to andapproved by
the city engineer.
The city clerk then formally announced the passing of the four bylaws voted ou last Thursday. They
were thereupon formally adopted and
passed. The mayor was also authorized to have the debentures for the
same printed.
A letter was read from J.P.G. Walsh
Winnipeg, to the city clerk,askiug for
further detail as to the exact requirements of the city in regard to the proposed new system of fire alarm.
A communication from James McKee =was ,also_re.ad^c^eruig ^to supply
the city with a complete and up to
date fire alarm system for |1200. The
matter was laid over till the next
meeting.
Tenders were opened from the Lawrence Hardware company and Hebden
& Hebden for the extension of the
water main on Kootenay street, some
600 feet, to Latimer street. The bids
for the work were identical, but Hebden & Hebden's bid for the pipe was
18 cents a foot higher than the other.
The mayor was authorized to have the
work done.
A. Campbell aiid H. Avery sent in
detailed reports of the street work done
under their supervision. The reports
wero read and ordered filed.
A. E. Hodgins, of tho Kootenay
Rifles, asked permission to drill his
meii on tho recreation grounds. The
permission was granted.
The city engineer was instructed to
put up a catch-basin at the corner of
Hall and Hendryx streets.
It was then resolved that the finance
committee should have a conference
with the electric light company in order to have the price to be paid for
their plant exactly fixed. The finance
committee were also empowered to
appoint an auditor to examine the
company's books should they deem it
necessary. The mayor stated S1that the
price of the electric light plank would
not be on the basis agreed upon, more
than $36,000, and also that the company were quite willing that their
books should be examined by an
auditor so as to show that no stock
was issued for which value was not received.
The city engineer was instructed to
suivey the ground to be acquired from
the C. PR. as a cemetery and to make
a map thereof. .   ,
The city scavenger was instructed
to go on using the present dumping
ground pending arrangements for a
permanent one.

CROW'S NEST NOTES.
The work of grading on the siding,,
on the Crow's Nest railway at the
point where the Port Steele branch
leaves the main line has been begun.
Trains now run regularly three
times per week between Macleod and
Bull Head and Macleod and Lethbridge, leaving Macleod at 6:30 p. m.
on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Messrs. Barker, Miller and Gardiner recently received a carload of
goods from the east via the Crow's
Nest railroad. We understand that
they are the first to receive goods by
this route. They have also shipped a
quantity of produce to British Colun: -
bia via the Crow's Nest railway, and
we believe also are the first iu this
field.
A somewhat unusual accident happened recently on an engine on the
Crow's Nest road. The water glass
gauge Imfstras'theyf requentlydo,-and-
a piece of the glass struck the fireman
in the neck, gashing one of the ar-
ties. He had a narrow escape from
bleeding to death. He was brought
into the hospital, where he remained a
few days.���Macleod Gazette.

THEIR  NAVAL   STRENGTH.
Standing   of   the   Navies   of   United
States and Old World Countries.
Chicago Times-Herald: Herewith is
set forth the strength of the navies of
the principal countries of Europe and
that of the navy of the United States.
The list of American ships includes
only those vessels of war in the regular
navy before the hostilities with Spain
began. Since that time this country
has added to its navy 64 ships, ranging
from heavy cruisers like the St. Paul
to mere tugboats and dispatch boats.
The ships sunk by Admiral Dewey in
Manila are not counted in the list of
Spanish gunboats:

to release the Spaniard Fnardo Mon-
tesi, who was arrested on the steamship Tartar Prince Saturday evening
and in whose baggage were found
many letters addressed to persons in
Spain. It was developed on investigation that the man was not a spy an,d
that the papers contained nothing incriminating or damaging. At the
same time the ~ officials think lie violated the postal reglations in personally
carrying letters to persons in Spain,
but the circumstances were not of such
a grave character as to justify prosecution.

Mole St. Nicholas, June 12, 6 p. m.
���The expedition from Tampa under
General Shatter is anxiously awaited
by the fleet off Sanitago de Cuba.
Operations will begin immediately
after the arrival of the transports,
which are expected soon.
When the Associated Press despatch
boat left Guantanamo bay this (Sunday) morning the cable steamer Adria
was grappling for the Haytien cable.
The cable is to be spliced, and Admiral
Sampson will hold it for direct communication with Washington.

BEAR IN MIND
Paris, June 13.���The Temps this
afternoon publishes a despatch from
Madrid in which it is said that the
communications exchanged between
high officials at Madrid, Vienna and
Berlin do not treat directly of peace.
But an important view of the situation
may arise out of Germany's hostility
to the development of American intervention in the Philippines, and in
connection with the reported intention
of the United States to occupy the La-
drone and Caroline islands.

TRUE BLUE GROUP BONDED.
Kaslo's Now Gold-Copper Finds Taken
by Hall Mines for $65,000.
Early yesterday morning a deal was
completed whereby the new gold
copper finds just southwest of town
were bonded to the Hall Mines Co., of
Nelson, for $65,000. Tho properties
bonded are the True Blue aud Peacock,
owned by W. A. Stephenson and William J. Frazer. The terms which were
made of public record yesterday aro:
|500 down, $1000 August 13 ��� $35,000
September 13, $10,000 September 13,
$10,000 December 13, and $8500 on
March 13, 1900. All of these dates are
"on or before."
The claims were located sliglitly over
a year ago. The first assessment work
recently completed, as heretofore
noted, showed a very rich prospect.
The development is, however, so slight
as to not justify heavy down payments.
A force of ten men is to Ibe placed at
work on the trail tomorrow morning
and development will be pushed rapidly. W. E. Hodder,who is interested
in adjoining claims, acted for the vendors, and T G. Proctor for the buyers.
���Superintendent   Davies  of the  Hall
Chicago, June 13. ���Owing to the big
slump in the wheat market Leiter,who
had made such a big corner in wheat,
has turned over his interests to a board
of trustees who will settle up the deal.
This course/was necessary on account
of Mr. Leiter's inability to put up the
margins which were called for. He
admitted that he had lost on the deal
and that his father had withdrawn his
support.
