(Is  .3  %T$j_  Bikiru  <r\YJC\  &%  1!  ,&,  3  OF  g-Tf-^^-^  Washington, May 2.���Dispatches  received state that Admiral Pewey of  the Pacifx'sqadrqn ' had nn pngage-  ment with the Spanish fleet at Manila  harbor, Philippine islands, yesterday  practically destroying it. American  loss unknown, but supposed to be  light.    Two  thsusarid  Spanish  killed  and their fleet blown out of existence.  - ,p  In the middle of the night the American squadron forced the forts and  before daybreak appeared off Cavite.  The night was completely; dark, and  at 7 o'clock the bow of the Reina  Maria Christina took fire and soon  after the poop deck also was burned.  The other ships having been damaged,  retired into Baker bay. Some" had to  be sunk in order to'prevent their falling into the hands of the enemy.  Admiral Dewey dssplayed great pluck  and courage in making for' the jnner  harbor. "     r, ,  An opinion freely expressed tonight  by the navol officers is that the very  decisive victory pf Admiral Dewey's  fleet will mean probably an early end  to the war without furtHcr ' navel  battles of importance. The American  fleet, it is suggested, is now supreme  in thc waters of Spain's Pacific possessions, and indicatians were strongly  toward 'l\\e slipping of the Philippines  from her control.  The emperor of Austria has contributed if 100,000 to Sp'anf&hd has allowed hi**, soldiers to enlist iu the Spanish army.    Later Dispatches.  Dispatches to Fort Steele state that  tbe Pacific squadron has taken possession of the Philippine islands and  that all volunteers west of the Mississippi river would be transported there  to keep possession. A telephone  message to Swansea gives out the1 information that the British ��� consul at  Cuba had been killed by the  Spanish.  fflERAL MERCHANTS;  ardware  9  roeeriei  MINERS5 OUTFITTING A SPECIALTY;  -PROPRIETORS   OF-  Tke Osly j[Jp-to-Date Ho^tiary "in East, |CyOf,e,yay.

Tbey were here for  for the- purpose^ of .lopking over jfche  city and also to inspect a new route  which will greatly shorten the dis-'  tauce between the Kootenay river and  this.place.  o Their idea is to build a vvagon road  frorn'Rackerts, on the boundary line  on the Kootenay' river,' to connect  with the Bonners Ferry road, 'instead  of usipg the Goat River landing as is  being done at present, It is estimated  that by the new route th�� distance  will be ihortened some 18 mil-is and  will be a much better ruad. r Ttie owners of the Aiusworth arc working for  the trade ot thi3 section of the country, and for that purpose Mr. Mathews  was here.  -O-  An Ideal TownsiteJMost Picturesquely and De-  r, '   L    lightfully Situated.

P., made a'Erip to  tbe tunnel at,the head of the lake  last Thursday to inspect the ,twork.  He seemed to be well pleased with the  way that work was progressing, One  hundred and six men are ay,work on  the tunnel, and a distance of only 14.0  feet is yet to be run. Work is being  pushed on both ends of the tunnel,  aud it is expected they will meet about  tbe first of July. ��� McBeth <& Peters,  whose contract is close to the tunnel,  ���u-o also making rapid progress and  will bo through by the time the tunnel is completed.  Mr. Clandoning also says that  forces of men arc strung all along the  line west of here clearing the. right of  way and grading, y  .V With the way work is now - progressing it is evident that the rails will be  laid to this point early in the fall;  St. Uugeiie j/cspital Opened.  C. J. Rose, on his way from Fort  Steele last Saturday, come by way of  thp St. FjUgene mission and remained  over Sunday and attended the opening ceremonies of the nev/ hospital.  Mr. Rose reports a lengthy and well  arranged program being carried out.  Father Coccola delivered , an able address, which was followed by a few appropriate remarks by Dr. Watt of  Fort Steele. Music was furnished by  the'band, composed ol Indian boys,  and a sumptuous luncheon was served  after the ceremony. About 40 persons were present from Fort Steele,  and nearly every other town in the  surrounding country was .represented.  The patients, about 17 in number,  were moved into tho new' building a  few days ago.  North Star and St. Eugene.  The B. C. Mining Review of^London,  England, says tne' JN"or*h Star mine,  in East Kootenay, has the ' most valuable body of ore "in sight" to be found  in (British Columbia. -But this is not  the only yaluable silver mine in British Columbia about which nothing is  kno.wn herp. Within a few. miles of  the North Star is the St. Eugene  mine, with upwards of 4.0,000 tons of  ore blocked out ready for concentrat-'-  ng. In the same- district tiiere are  large copper, gold and silver ore bodies  undeveloped, because of the la/sk of  railway facilities, which, however the  Crow's Nest railway will supply this  year. -It is a striking evidence of the  wealth of the mines of British Columbia to have presented to us such an  enormous body of pre as ti^t of the  North Star and St. Eugene,  produced  without the akl o�� oxyuuaivo   plan*. - or  machinery, and only awaiting the advent ot a railway to be reduced to  bullion.  N.otodoMitiinij; M"an Here.'  H. Bell-Irviug of Vancouver, one of  the most extensive mine operators in  British Columbia, was here last Sunday on a .ton.r of inspection of East  Kootenay miniyg properties. .. Ue  visited the St. Eugene and Lake Shore  mines and was greatly surprised at  the amount of work which had been  done and the quantity of ore blocked  out and/.on the dump. He went from  here to inspect the North Star mine  near Cranbrook. Mr. Bell-Irving is  backed by plentycof English capital,  aud his visit here may result in some  large mining deals being put through,  as he signified his intention of returning within a short time.

Tom Love, owner. of, the Union  Jack, recently had an assay^ made  which run in copper from.7 to 36 per  cunt.; gold, irS to $3(5, and averaging  08 ounces. On' the same claim are  two other leads, paralleling thc . first,  six and two ami one-halt feet wide respectively, and of the same nature of  ore, bnt, supposed to  carry larger gold.  values.

The liaiit Kootenay hotel, which  bears the Jistiijction of being the  most costly ami most elaborately finished hotel in the district, was opened  to the public last Monday morning.  Some of the "furniture for the new has  been delayed between Jennings, Mont.,  and Fort Steele on its way here, but  if now daily expected to arrive.  The building is S4 feet in length  and 30 feet in. \yidth, and every portion from the basement to the attie is  finished in the best possible manner  that skilled hands could accomplish.  McMahon Bros., the proprietors, have  spared no paius ih making th6 East  Kootenay a model hotel, and, being  3hrewd, courteous and genial gentlemen, .will' certainly meet -with unbounded success with their new hos-  tlery.    , __.__   Meat -Market Est-ilillslietl.  M. McGnmis of Fort Steele has  purchased the building which was recently built by Goldberg & Conrad  and has moved in a supply of meat,  and has opened up a meat market  with Ed Printer of Fort Steele in  charge. ���'���������.  A slaughter yard will be built at.  once, and hereafter the beef cattle  willjbc driven here and slaughtered,  instead at" shipping the meat in as is  being done now. And thus another  ting felt want in Moyie City h&a been  lilted. ,  LOCAL BRIEFS.  Mrs. L. Biggins is again able to bo  around after a short illness.  C. Kaulfman returned yesterday  from Fort Steele, where ho had gono  to get supplies for his hotel.

Dan McLeod panged through &ere  early yesterday morning on ,his  way to McBeth's camp, where he is  employed, ou his return from' a visit  With his family in Slocan City.  At one time the Fort Steele Prospector said: "A chil's among ye taking  notes and faich h��'ll prent them."',  Under this kind of sentiment this  pa^er says: "Our'enemy is gvil and  our battle ax truth.."  A couple of Chinamen have been  noticed around town for the past- few  days, ajid it is rumored they ar..esmak-��  itig arrangements to locate. Some  action should be taken in this matter  to rid this flourishing little city of  these leprous barnacles.  The paymaster was through hare  last Sunday and' distributed some  "wampum" to the boys along the line.  He was escorted, as usual, by two  mounted policemen. Sargeant Clopp  accompanied the party as far as Goat  Riyer, returning to this place Thursday.  The Italian, Areangelo- Michele,  who was reported in last week's issue  of the Leader to have been fatally  shot by Pole Cline,; a foreman at Hos-  kins camp near Kuskonook, is still  living and has a, slight, chance -of re-  coyery. Cline's trial will come off at ���  Nelsou May 12th.-  The steamer Echo made au excursion trip to the head of the lake last  Sunday with about 50 ^passengers on  board, including quite a number of ;  ladies. The round trip of 16 miles  was made in one hour and twenty-  one minutes.; It was a free excursion  and'was highly enjoyed.by all.  D. J. Johnstone has commenced  work on the Aurora group on the  west shore of the-lake. He is working  in the tunnel which was begun last  fall, aud the showing of ore has greatly  improved under the new work. The  Aurora is owned by Capt. I. B. San-  burn, D. J. Johnstone and Karl  Neitzel.  Corporal Macnair, a member of the  Northwest Mounted Police in charge  at Wardner, committed suicide at  tliat place a week ago last Wednesday  morning by shooting himself with a  revolver while in a lit of temporary  mental aberration, caused by sickness.

In the opinion] of  the 7Vaneouver  '   World (he ''present opposition  comprises about a? weak a conglomeration  of personalities as could  be found   in  any legislative  body 'in   tho   Queen's  widely seal(ered dominions.    Thoy initiate nothing, they   suggest   no improvement upon tho present' manner  of conducting    public    affairs,    their  whole policy seems to be' one   of pulldown, instead of building up, and obstruction seems Ip be' the,, main plank  in   their-1' flimsy   platform.    The less  one hears of .the weakness of the present party tho better.   The fact js if au  electiou were to be  pulled  off tomorrow,    with   'fair  representation,    the  Turner party   would, come from  thc  country vastly strengthened.",  If the opposition wish to gain the  confidence of the voters of tho province the best thing to do is to get  down to business and put an' end lo  this   small potato _ style of politics.  The noonio cannot bo  led to accept,  ���*���     ���* e, -l  campaign slander "and vilification as  evidence that will bring about a  change that will benefit tho country  ton greater,, extent.    Tlie  better elo-  ' mentor the people aro now perfectly  satisfied with tho present- government in power and know full  well that it can go on its own merits  for the reason that under'1 that government the people, of the province have  prospered, and. (ho coming -election  will elect the different officials to  suc-  ���c.eotl themselves by. the greatest majority ever given a political party in  the history of British Columbia/  Only a short time now remains for  the persons who expect, to have a vole  at the coming election to If ave their  names put on theovoters' list. Every  man who has an interest jn tho country in .which he lives -should avail  himself of his right to choosotho men  who shall represent him in public  affairs.  No valid excuse seams to ' bc able to  , f  be given for the gr,eat delay in continuing tho telephone line from Swansea  to this place. If the telephone company waits much longer the C.'P.

A n Editorial Present.  ���' Some ladies in Texas were recently  desirous of doing honor ,lo the editor  of a local 'journal,,,so they presented  their hero with an embroidered shirt,  which contained'a splendid history of  .Texas, avd ralso pictures of the fruits  and cereals of' tho state worked all  over it in red worsted. Now this particular editor had never worn a ' shirt,  and supposed the brilliant specimen  before him to be & banner for an approaching temperance procession.
