NO FLEETS THERE.
Port au Prince, Hayti, May 11.���A
dispatch from the Mole, St. Nicholas,
received late in tho day says no warships have entered the harbor since
hostilities broke out.
GIFT OF A BATTLE SHIP.
Sah Bernardino, Cal., May 11. ���The
railroads of this state have started to
raise a fund to build a battleship for
the government.
TO BE RELEASED.
New York, May 11.���The prize
commissioner recommends the release
of the steamer Mogul Gover, on the
grounds that she carried an American
cargo and that the time for her
departure from an American port had
not elapsed. She was one of the finest vessels captured by the American
squadron and her release means the
loss of |700,000 prize money to her
captors.
TROOPS GO TO CUBA.
Tampa, Fla,, May 11. ���The steamer
Gussie, carrying arms, ammunition
and food^to the Cuban insurgents,
left tlie harbor ..shortly after 1 o'clock
yesterday afternoon. There were two
companies of United States infantry
on board. *    .-
TO ATTACK HAVANA.
New York, May 11.���A special to
the World from Washington says:
After a conference of the naval board it
was decided that Rear Admiral Sampson should not seize Porto Rico, but
return to Key West and begin operations against Havana. Admiral Sampson will reach a point off San Juan on
Wednesday afternoon, and one of his
scouting vessels will call at St. Thomas
for instructions from Washington.
These instructions will contain information  that  the   Spanish  fleet is at
Cadiz, ��� -and to return ' to' Key 'West,'
arriving at the latter point next
Monday.
The administration has decided to
let Porto Rico alone and consolidate
its power on the capture of Cuba. The
invasion of Cuba will begin in earnest' Tuesday next. Rear Admiral
Sampson is to begin the .attack on
Havana about the middle of the week,
while Gen. Shofter's land forces will
a)tuck--the Cuban capital at the same
time! It is expected that 48 hours
after the attack is begun the city will
be in the hands of-Americans.
TRANSPORTS IN READINESS.
Tampa, Fla., May 11. ���By Thursday
six of the big government transports
at Port Tampa will be in readiness
for actual loading of the troops and
horses. They have already been supplied with coal and water. General
Shafer spent most of the afternoon at
the port in superintending the work,
which will be continued night and day
until completed. Tomorrow eac
trausport will have mounted one or
more of the Hotchkiss guns, while
the Gatlings, which-will be taken
along, will be placed ou the.quarter
decks. : ���
STR. MONOCACY TO LEAVE.
Washington, May 11. The report from
Shanghai that the Chinese authorities
have requested the United States
steamer Monocacy tb withdraw from
that port, owing to the neutral attitude
of China, caused some apprehension
among naval officers here as she is an
old wooden ship, which could not
move safely on the open sea. No
official notice has been received, and
the Chinese legation knows nothing of
thc matter.
MAIL ROUTES INTERRUTPED.
Blockade of Havana Disturbs Postal
Communication With Cuba.
Washington, May 11.���The British
ambassador and the,Chinese minister
have called the attention of the state
department to the effect that they
are unable to communicate by mail
with their officials in Cuba and Port
Rico. This is due to the interrupting of
the regular mail ^routes between this
country and the Spanish possessions.
It is embarrassing to the British
authorities, as they have need of communicating by mail with the British
consulate at Havana. The state department is anxious to afford every possible
facility for official communication
by mail and telegraph, but it is not
likely that matters can be arranged
for the present.

Toronto, May 11.���The following is
a special cable to the Telegram:
London,May 11.���The Daily Mail,in
an editorial discussing the situation
today, says: "The mass of thoughtful Englishmen will.endorse the words
of-' Prof. Gjoldwin Smith, spoken at
Boston in 1864, that for a real alliance
England must look to the United
States."
LADY CARTIER'S FUNERAL.
Montreal, May 11.���The funeral of
the late Lady Cartier took place from
the residence of her mother, Mrs.
Fabre, and was attended by a large
number of representative citizens..
Floral offerings were numerous. By a
curious' coincidence the' same hearse
which conveyed the-remains of the late
Sir George Etienne Cartier 25 years
ago,' was now used for the funeral of
his widow, and among those in the
cortege was Hon.- Mr. Lariviere, representing the county of Provencbere,
for which the late baronet was a member at - the time of his death. The
remains were interred beside those of
her husband in the Catholic cemetery.
SECRET SOCIETIES CHARTERED.
Ottawa,,May 11.���The banking and
commerce committee this morning
passed a bill for Dominion incorporation
of the Ancient Order of Foresters.
This was a measure actively opposed
by several members of the government
last week. A clause was inserted requiring the order to put up a reserve
fund satisfactory to the insurance department. A bill for the incorporation of the supreme grand lodge Sons
of England Benefit society met with
objection on the same grounds as the
former measure. Minister Davies
asked for the addition' of a clause to
provide for a reserve fund, but the pro
moters declined to accept thsproposal,
and the bill passed without amendment.      -;. '..*"*'   .'.       * -   ,

the Hastings mill.
TO WIN A BET.
A Parisian Physician Tramps 'Round
the World Without Money.
Vancouver, May 11.���The Oriental
liner Empress of China sailed this
afternoon for Yokohama and Hong
Kong. Among her passengers was Dr.
Du Fay, a well known Parisian physician, who is touring the world on foot
for a purse of $40,000. The journey
arose this way.:
HOW IT CAME ABOUT.
Seated one evening in January in
1897 in the cafe de Prince iu Paris
with two companions. Dr.c Fougue
and Dr. Tetard, conversation
turned upon the trip made by
Miss Nellie Bly. Dr. Du Fay volunteered the opinion that, although such
a trip was naturally thought remarkable
one  made around  the  globe on foot
would be still more so. The result
was a wager. Dr. Du Fay undertook
to make a start from Paris without
money and clad only in a paper suit.
He was to encircle tlie earth on foot and
return before January 1* 11)00, not
shaving nor having his hair cut on
the journey.
HOW HE DOES IT.
The doctor's hair now hangs in
unwonted profusion down his shoulders. He is a gentleman of education
and carries credentials of a very high
order. Ho practices his profession
eu route, paying especial attention to
rheumatism and gout. He never asks
for assistance but accepts graciously
anything tendered him. Judging
from his appearance he has met with
good treatment on his long tramp.
THE BLACKCOCK MINE.
Ymir, May 11���(Speci al). ���Frank C.
Davcy and Howard C. Walters of Ross-
and are here, and are at present araug-
iig to put 25 men to wcrk on the Black
Cock, the latter part of this week.
The Black Cock, which is situated on
Wild Horse creek, was recently purchased by Mr. Walters fer a large sum
of money.. Mr. Davey mr.de a thorough
examination of the property and made
a very favorable report on it. Mr.
Walters will at once build a large
boarding house and also bunk houses
for the miners. Considerable work was
one on the property last summer and
fall by the Hall Exploration company.'
Mr. Frank C. Davey will have charge
of the workings of the mine.
DEATH OF A PROSPECTOR.
Ymir, May 11.���James Chisholm, a
prospector who arrived in the town a
few dayrf ago, and who claimed to be
dead broke, and who was living off
the charity of the good people of Ymir
died yesterday. In searching through
his. old clothes three certificates of. deposit on a national bank in Idaho for
$100 each were found. Capt. Forrister
took charge of the certificates and sent
them to the government agent at Nelson. Chisholm was taken sick a few
days before he died, and a subscription
paper was started for his benefit, and
about $30 was raised. He made no statement before dying as to where his relatives lived, and as he was an entire
stranger here no one knows anything
of his past life. He was buried here
today by the county.
FRIENDLY DIPLOMATS.
Washington, May 11.���As a result of
the Spanish reverse at Manila, leodng
members of the diplomatic corps, representing some of the most influential
of the great powers of Europe, have
unofficially exchanged views on the
opportuneness of a movement dictated
by the most friendly spirit and in the
interest of peaee towards urging upon
Spain the futility of further prosecuting the war and inducing her to sue
for peace on the basis of the relinquishment of Cuba, the promise of a
war indemnity and the occupation of
Manila^~by^AdmiraI^Dewey!runtil'theJ
war indemnity is paid. It was stated
tonight by one'of the most influential
members of the diplomatic corps���an
ambassador���that such a step by Spain
herself was the logical result of the
crushing Spanish defeat at Manila,
and that Spain herself should be the
first to recognize it as a measure for
her own self-protcetion and self-preservation. Her best friends in tbe family of nations ought to urge it upon
Spain, and if it were not for the
chaotic condition of affairs at Madrid,
he felt that such peace overtures
would be welcome there.

Paris, May 11.���The correspondents
in Rome of the newspapers of this
city all affirm that a revolution in
Italy is imminent, and that a popular
rising throughout Italy will not long
be delayed.
MATTERS WORSE IN ITALY.
London, May 11.���The Rome cor-'
respondent of the Times says: It is
believed that matters are steadily
growing worse. The ,, government is
clearly unequal to the difficulties of the
situation and great anxiety prevails in
political circles.

CHANGE OF TIME CARD.
Commencing with yesterday morning the"; steamer International now
leaves Kaslo for Nelson at 3:30 a. m.,
two and a quarter hours earlier than
formerly. This change \vas necessitated by the change in the hour of departure of trains en the Nelson and
Fort Shepard railway, in order that
connections might be made at Five
Mile point at 6:45. There has been
no change in the time of the International's return trips.
SILENCE  IS  OMINOUS.:,
London, May 11.���The  Manila cor*,
respondent  of  the- Daily  News telegraphing .Tuesday night says:
" * *-I" am / unable���at - thir^moment to
send  you. more  than  a  few words.
Fresh  and  more rigid measures have
beea" adopted  in   the  censorship of
telegrams.    This silence is most ominous.   Any official accounts of restoration of order must be, received with
all reserve.: . The rebels are besieging
Milan."	
FEEDING THE PEOPLE.
London, /May 11.���The Madrid correspondent of the Daily News says the
Spanish government is negotiating
for the purchase of 100,000 socks of
flour in Belgium in order to relieve
the bread famine. A rise in the
prices of bread must be prevented at
all costs on political grounds.
SHOULD  BE eOUBTMARTIALED
Foreign Ambassadors Say That Spain
Should Punish Montijo.
Wshingon,  May 11���The   military
auth-^Wes .j^
establishments here say that Admiral
Montijo and his entire staff of officers
ought to be, and undoubtedly would
be, courtmartialed for allowing themselves to be surprised by Admiral
Dewey's fleet. One of these officials
said:
"There is not a single naval power
in Europe which would not immediately order a courtmartial after
such a humiliating surprise followed by such terrible results of negligence. The courtmartial should have
beeu ordered instantly and if Spain haa
not already ordered it, it discloses the
inability to appreciate the seriousness
of such a naval blunder. To be taken
by surprise is unpardonable. All of
the reports show that the Spanish officers had no proper lookouts, had no
search-lights and no, safeguards against
surprises. They invited their own
defeat.,"
BLOWN TO PIECES
London, May 11.���A. despatch to
the Globe from Gibraltar says: A
British steamer, which has just arrived here, reports officially that
yesterday evening she passed a Spanish torpedo boat destroyer which was
guarding Algecieras bay and straits.
Shortly after the steamer passed her^
all lights on the destroyed were suddenly extinguished, a terrific explosion
followed immediately and the des
trover disappeared. ���^.^.Hfriv**^^^

THURSDAY   MORNING,   MAY   12.
The first strike in a Kootenay mining
camp is now reported to be going on in
Rossland. The miners on the Le Roi
are said to have struck in consequence
of the length of the shift having been
increased fiom eight hours to ten.
But this by itself must of course be an
error; Rossland miners are as capable
of doing a ten hours shift as any other
men.
Tbe Thorno type setting machine in ���
the Miner composing room, was started
to work last night,* under the "guiding-
bonds of Gknrlea R. Carroll and Wm.
MoMorria. Tbe first page of this morning's Miuer i3 a sample of the work'-'of
the machine, which works splendidly and
will add greatly to tlie facilities for timing out a first class paper. The power
for the machine is supplied by tbe Pelton
water motor in tbe po.^-ruonj in the
basement of the oflice. The machine is
the first of its kind placeJ in uuy printing
office ia lhe interior of the Province of
British Columbia. Tbo Thome patent
differs fiom otber typesetting machines
in that it sets moveable type; 'whereas
th8 Rogers nntl Merjznnthaler machines
cast iha characters in solid lines from
molten metal. The two laat named inventions can only be operated where gas
is obtainable for beating tbe metal. As
Kelson hns no gus works yet, the Thorne
is the only typesetting machine that can
be successfully operated hare. Ii; is e
very rapid typesetter aud has been 'fcuown
to set G0,0G0 ems in eight hours or as
much as eight printer? would average iu
the same space of time.
Tbe starting up of the Miner's Thorne
typesetting machine marks an epoch'id
the newspaper history of Nelson, and a
large number of interested spectators
visited tbe office yesterday evening aud
watched the operations of the complicated piece of mechanism as it quickly aud
correctly placed the letters in proper
position.	
PUBLIC BUILDINGS FOR NELSON.
Right.
The businesslike way in which Canada views her militia forces, and requires her officers to he properly quali-
fied and trained for the military rank
they hold seems to be appreciated elsewhere as well as at home. As soon as
the United States determined to go to
war with Spain they did everything
in their power to get the best materials in the way of arms, men  and of-
-*��� * fleers that they could before war was
declared; and* among other things,
jnade a special' effort to secure the
services of all the Canadian thilitia
officers possible, offering them similar
or higher rank in the American, to
what they held in the Canadian^ service. Speaking on this matter Hon;
David Mills, Minister of Justice and
leader of the Senate said:
���=���* I noticed that the American Con-
; sul in Montreal gave notice to officers
of the Canadian militia force that if
they joined the American army very
possibly thty might have the rank
they held in Canada. Was he violating any rights of neutrality in doing
so? I cannot say that he was; as no
war was then declared. There was no
belligerents, and up to that time there
was no neutrality proclaimed; buf if
would bave been an improper proceeding on bia part.
Braasey's Naval Annual for 1898, issued in London, of course contains a
mass of valuable information. Lord
Brassey, the father of the editor, and
governor of the colony of Victoria,
contributes an article on the position
of the British navy in 1898, which
concludes with a plea fpr a league of
the English; -speaking countries. He
says:
In the present anxious position of
affairs we shall not relax our efforts to
create such naval forces as will ensure
the safety of the Empire; but if in the
process of time, we can accomplish a
closer union between ourselves and
the United States, if we can establish
a perpetual league of all English speakers, for settling their differences by arbitration ; nay, more, tor mutual defence if threatened by external foes
then we shall have changed the circumstances. - Our latent resonrces
would be too overwhelming to be
challenged or contested. Let us cher
ish the hope that the consummation
j^o happy may some day be reached by
the sagacity of our statesmen and the
growing wisdom and good will of our
kindred people,
A telegram was received yesterday by
John A. Turner, secretary of the South
Kootenay Board of Trade, from Mayor
Houston, stating that a sum of money
has been placed in tho supplementary
estimates to be submitted to the Dominion parliament, for the erection of a government building iu Nelson.
Hon. J. Israel Tarte, Minister of- Pub-
lie Works, was chiefly instrumental in
having the sum placed in the estimates,
and will use all his influence to have it
ratified by parliament. This is one of
the questions taken up by the Board cf
Trade, a couple of months ago, and iu the
support of which they made such strong
representations to the government.

THE PHILIPPINE PROBLEM.
What Will  the United States Do With
the Islands After Securing Them?
A great maritime power holding the
Philippines ought to be mistress in the
ar tast; and which of them isjit to be?
America trJO. be the owner of the
islands, but she will not want to keep
them, thus' giving hostages to all the
maritime empires; and she can hardly
invest the medley of dark races who
obey and massacre the parochial cuars
of the Philippines with independence
and self-government. Manila is not
Spanish like Porto Rico, but Asiatic,
and would be only a new Hayti. At
the same time, America will not like
to transfer the Philippines to a non-
Christian : power, even if it should be
ready to offer the forty millions sterling at whiich Japan values the possession ; and failing herself, Japan, and
the Tagals.to whom is she to offer the
myriad islands, harbors and plantations, with their four or five millions
of copper-colored people, two millions
and a half of them nominally Christians? There will be fierce biddings
and fierce jealousies among those who
bid and wbo are not triumphant. We
can hardly imagine anything which
could so excite Russia, Great Britain,
Germany and France as the idea that
rival martime power would for all
time be seted on the thousnd islnds in
the word *' Philippines.' '���Spectator.

and established themselves- ou the
shores of the Atlantic or ou tlie banlcs of
the St. Lawrence, the provinces of
svhich they were among the makers
have continued true, to their grand ideal
of a United British Empire.���Jclin
G. Bonrinot, in Canadian Magazine.
In 'the promotion of tbe material
as well as the political, educational
and intellectual development of British
North America, we see the influence
of the Loyalists. Dr. Ryerson was the
founder of the public school system
of Upper Canada. The Welland canal
bears testimony to the energy and
sagacity of William Hamilton Merritt.
Sir Samuel Cunard of Nova Scotia established the great line of ocH'J
steamers still associated with his
name. The Loyalists and their descendants have given Canada sixteen
lieutenant governors, eighteen chief
justices, four prime ministers of provinces, and fifteen members of the Dominion government, including four finance ministers. As we recall-the
story of the Loyalists, their devotion
to the crown and British connection,
their sufferings during many years,
their services to Canada and in the
periods of her political and social development, we cannot ^exaggerate the
heavy debt of gratitude that the Canadians of the present day owe to these
pioneers. Their migration was in
many respects one of the most remarkable the world has ever seen; it
was like that of the Huguenots of the
sixteenth century, an exile for the
sake of high principle. From the day
they came into the British possessions

"Gentlemen," said Congressman Grab-
bltt, rising to address a committee of admiring constituents who had waited upon
him to urge him to becomo a candidate for
a third term, "I am not using a mere
form of words when I assure you that tliis
Is tho proudest moment of my lifo. To
have served my district for nearly four
years in tho congress of tho United States
in such a manner as to merit the encomiums you have seen ftt to pass upon mo
this evening" is an honor that any man
might well be proud to wear. If I havo
not done my whole duty, gentlemen, the
error hus been of the head and not of the
heart. I have striven at least to earn your
approval, and the flattering words your
-spokesman has addressed to me convince
me that my efforts have not been wholly in
vain."
At this point he stopped to take a drink
of water and his auditors loudly applauded.
"You como tome, gentlemen," ho rc-
���umed, "with an assurance that amounts
practically to a re-election. But, gentlemen, there is another thing to be taken
into consideration.   I am a poor man."
Hero his voice became tremulous.
"I havo reached middle ago, gentlemen," ho went on, "without having accumulated moro than a bare competence.
Highly as I should prlzo the honor of representing you once again in tho lower
houso of congress I cannot afford to stand
in my own light. My mind, gentlemen,
is made up. I cannot be your candidato
for congress because"���and here his voice
sank to a whisper���"I have got my pipes
aU laid for running for alderman of tho
Stecnth ward. I've counted noses and I'm
going to be elected .by the dad-dingedest
majority any galoot ever got in this town!"
Gongrcssman Grabbltt wiped thc perspiration from his forehead and spoke in
his natural tone.
"Gentlcmon," he -said, "I thank you
from the bottom of my heart for this mark
of your oonfidonco and esteem. What'll

A German "War GUott.
On tho night beforo tho battle of Saal-
field Prince Louis of Prussia and his adjutant, Count Nostitz, were chatting in
tho Schloss Schwarzburg-Budolfstadt.
The prince was anticipating victory when
be suddenly turned palo and rushed from
the room, pursuing through the hall a
shadowy, white robed figure. The sentinel
���aw it also.
Next day Nostitz and the prince saw tho
whito lady on a hill wringing her hands
in despair as the Germans fell back. A
few minutes later Louis was killed and
Nostitz wounded. Nostitz told the story
to his son, and the son to "Unscr Fritz,"
father of the present emperor.
Tho white lady's first appearance was
when she was seen ln tho palace at Biu-
reuth in 1486. She appeared eight or ten
times in tho next century. When tho
French ollicers were quartered in Bai-
reuth, she frightened them, in particular
General d'Espagne, who, the day after lie
had seen her, pointed to a portrait on the
wall and cried: "It is sho I That means
my death I" He was killed soon afterward.
Tho superstitious Napoleon wouldn't
sleep in the castle, but the whito lady went
to seo him elsewhere. She was seen before
tho death of tho beautiful Queen Louise,
of- Frederick -William III, vi Frederick
William IV, of "Unser Fritz" himself and
of many other members of tho reigning
house of Prussia.
Coin? to tbe Circus,
A Lincoln attorney who is a church
member was figuring on taking his son to
the circus to see tho animals this year, as
has been his custom in the past ever since
the youngster bas been large enough to
appreciate the menagerie attractions. The
���on is 15 years old, and ho recently announced to his father that ho was big
enough to go alone. Tiie father was taken
considerably aback, for he had not counted
on being deprived of the excuse for going
this year that ho had always used before.
"Why du you want to go alone?" the father asked.
"I don't know," replied tho boy ln * reluctant manner.
"Yes you do," said his father. "You
wouldn't toll mo that you want to go
alone without a reason."
"Well, p*pa," ho said, *��I want to stay
out in the animal tent longer than you
do."
