THE   FIGHT   AT   MANILA.
B* Biiecuinbs After a Brief Illness
The Lust Sad Rites Record of a
Lifetime.
The dentil of James Cornelius
Durick lias removed one of the
Brightest business men and besl
efifizens of this district. His demise will be deeply mourned by

BiSiJL "Jimmy" Durick was n
m.-oii whom everybody hereabouts
knew nnd respected.
The  illness   whicli   ended   in
tl.--ai.ii was not of more than 10
Sags   duration.    He  was  first
token down with a mild form of
Eagrippe, which litis been almost

attack developed into pneumonia,

however, that the public became
aware of the serious condition of
The sufferer, and many citizens
called  al   the residence lo make
enquiries,    lie  became  unconscious sometime during the afternoon, and iu that condition remained   till   shortly   after   ten
o'clock   in   llie  evening,   when
death came nnd forever stilled as
true and stout a Canadian heart
as ever throbbed.
There was an expression of universal regret when the truth be-
eame known, and tlie sad news
passed from mouth to mouth in
a whisper thai told the depth of
tlnj feeling which it stirred. Por
.Mrs. Durick, herself on a bed of
illness through confinement,
there was tlie deepest sympathy.
The funeral took place at 9 a.
m. on Monday from the residence on Selkirk avenue. Flags
ha<l beou Hying at half-mast
throughout the city as a token of
respect, and the funeral was the
largest yet witnessed in these
parts. The coffin, which was
rovered with the Horn] tributes
tot friends and of associations
with which deceased was connected, was borne by the pallbearers from the residence to
181. Anthony R. C. Church,
where the services were conducted by Rev. Father Coccola
and Rev. Father Walsh. The
church was draped in mourning
and many an eye was dimmed
with tears of sorrow at the loss
nf so true and kind a friend. Tlu
Gregorian Requium Mass was
ninig hy the choir of the church,
assist™! by the Sitters of Charity
nf lhe Sl. EugGllO Mission, after
which the tinal absolution was
pronounced, It wns n most impressive service.
Rev, Father Walsh made a
short address in which he spoke
in terms of high eulogy of the
■character of the deceased, and
■asked foi tiie prayers of the congregation for the repose of the
.*oul. The coffin was then borne
out of the church while from ithe
■organ poured forth the melancholy strains of the Dead March
en Saul.
Tho funeral cortege was then
formed and moved through Riverside avenue, proceeding to the
Sili. Eugene Mission cemetery,
»iviui miles up the St. Mary's
River. A long procession of
vehicles followed to theigmve-
side, where the service of the
Etonian Catholic Unwell was
rend by Rev. Father Coccola.
The children of the Indian Industrial School attended at the
burial, chanting a hymn as they
came,

from tlie MeCulluch's
funnel. Thereupon a few shots
were exchanged with the batteries on Corregidor Island, but the
, Heel did not slow down and took
kip a position near Cavite awaiting dawn in order to commence
hostilities,
The early hours of lite morning revealed the opposing ships
to each oilier, and the Spanish
flagship opened fire, Its action
was followed by some of tlie
larger warships, and then the
Cavite forts opened up and the
smaller Spanish ships brouglii
Iheir guns into play. The
American squadron, whicli had
been led into llie bay by the
Olynipia, did not reply, though

onward.

Mr. Warren was dissolved, and!clistance ahead ot tl,e Olynipia
tlie deceased joined Wm. Carlin
and bought out the business of
Carlin & Lake at Fort Steele, organizing tlie firm of Carlin &
Durick, whicli has become one of
the most prominent and successful business enterprises in the
interior of British Columbia. Iu
business circles Mr. Durick was
known as one of the most thorough-going, reliable and straightforward of men. To anyone who
knew him, his word was as good
as liis bond, and to few, iudeed,
is accorded the high degree of
public confidence which was enjoyed by James C. Durick. He
was a  public-spirited  man;  in

exploded a mine or a torpedo,
This was followed by a second
and similar explosion. They
were botli utterly unsuccessful.
The American Meet was then
drawing nearer and nearer to the
Spaniards whose gunnery was
poor, the shots from the Cavite
batteries and from the Spanish
ships being equally badly aimed,
either falling short or falling
wide of the mark.

seemed to tell, while almost
every Spanish shot missed the
mark.
Afler having thus scaltered
death and demoralization among
the Spanish fleet uud the Spanish batteries, tbo American Heel
retired for breakfast, nnd incl
dentally a council of war was
held on hoard the Olympia.
By this time ihe Spanish ships
were in a desperate condition.
The flagship Reina Christina was

completely riddled and her uppor deel; hail been swept clear
by tlie awful tire of tint American guns, but the Spaniards,
though their vessel was sinking
beneath them, continued working her guns until she sank beneath tin' waters.

Spanish torpedo bout crept along
the shore nnd round llie offing in
an attempt to attack the American store ships, but she was
promptly discovered, was driven
ashore anil was actually blown
to pieces. The Mindanao had in
the meantime been run ashore to
keep iter from sinking, and the
Spanish small craft bad sought
shelter from the steel storm behind the breakwater,
Tlie battle which was started
at about 5:30 a. in. and adjourned
at 8:30 a. in. was resumed about
noon, when Commodore Dewey
started in to pui the finishing
touches on his furious work.
There was not much fight left in
the Spaniards by that lime. At
1 p. in. tho Pe*rel und Concord
had shot tlio Cavite battery into
silence, leaving thorn heaps of
ruins and floating tlie white ling.
The Spanish gunboats were
then scuttled, the arsenal was on
tire and the explosion of a Spanish magazine caused further
mortality among tlie defenders
of Spain on shore.
On the water the burning,
sunken or destroyed Spanish
vessels could be seen while
among tho American squadron
only the cruiser Baltimore had
suffered in any way from the fire
of the enemy, The shot which
struck hor exploded some ammunition near one of her guns
and slightly injured half a dozen
of the crew. Siiots passed
dangerously close to Commodore
Dewey, but little or no damage
was done on board the flagship.
On the other baud about 150 men
are said to have been killed on
the Spanish flagship, which was
otally destroyed.
Admiral Montijo, the Spanish
commander, transferred his flag
to the Isla de Cuba, where his
ship caught fire, but the latter
was also destroyed in due course
of time.
The Reina Christina lost her
captain, n lieutenant, her chaplain and a midshipman hy one
shot whicli struck her bridge.
About lull men were killed and
(io wounded on board theCastilla.
Indeed some estimates place the
number of Spanish wounded during the engagement at over a
thousand men. The Olympia
was struck live times about her
upper works, and awhaleboiil of
the Raleigh was smashed.
Although the Krupp guns on
the Espllllllldo of Manila were
continuously  tiring   during  lhe
engagement, Commodore Dewey
did not reply lo Ihem, and the
battery afterwards holstod a
while (lag in token of surrender.
The tonus of Ibe capitulation

until after the alarm was given.
It is said also that the Spanish
commander informed the governor general tlmt it was advisable
to surrender in lho iiileresls of
humanity, as il was impossible
to resist successfully, but thut
he and his men were willing to
fight and die. liven when the
Spanish llagship was shot half
away, her commander though
wounded, refused to leave the
bridge until the ship was burning
and sinking, her stern shattered
by u common shell, and her steam
pipe burst.
The Petrel chased a gunboat
up the river I'lisi"*. and the
Spanish captain came in a boat
to negotiate conditions of surrender. The American captain replied: "Unconditional surrender or tight."
To this the Spaniard answered: "We are willing to light.
Please allow us to send for ammunition, because our store is
exhausted."
The Esmeralda, from Hong
Kong, arrived in the middle of
the battle. During tlie adjournment for breakfast, nn American
cruiser was detached to meet
her, as it was believed she might
be a Spaniard. When it was
found that the new arrival was a
Ilritish vessel, she wns warned
to keep away. The Esmeralda
therefore moved up the bay 10
or 15 miles.
There are still two or three
Spanish gunboats about the
Philippines, but no resistance
from them is probable. One recently captured  an    American
bark.

Colonel Bilker wus white with
linger when lie ruse nnil suid:
"Docs ho suppose that we care
nboul whut such n contemptible
creature as that (Porstor) suys,
or attempts lo say':"'
This remark created 11 grout
commotion in llu* House.
Mr, Cotton rose nnd asked the
Chairman if he considered that
tbe term "contemptiblecreature"
was u   propel'  OUO   lo  use.    He
asked the Chairman to take the
words down.
Colonel Bakor: "Tnko them
down.''
Mr. Cotton: "The Provincial
Secretary cluims to be a gentle-
mnn. His education should
teach him better than to use
such an expression in Iliis
House."
Colonel linker: "I do mil
withdraw il at all, The honorable inombor should not gol up
and call members of tho Government murderers and thieves
whicli lie did. When lie talks
alxiiit the unclean records or the
members of the Government I
say that lie is a contemptible
creature, and I repeat it,"
Mr. Porsten "I havo this to
nay. 1 believe that the supporters ef the Government are lion-
ble gentleman lias now made n
direct accusation against me.
He snys I huve abused my position iii this House by acting as
President of a Company whicli
obtained a land grant from this
House. Thnl honorable member
ill this House informed the House
that I wns an interested purly in
the affairs of that company and
that I therefore did not vote. I
wus, at the time, u private member nf tho House, uml any
private member of tho House
hns 11 right lo be connected with
uny private company, Whenever
ibe subject came up in the House
connected with that Railway
Company, I always lold the
members of the Houso that I wns
an interested purly. I defy the
honorable member to say that 1
ever acted in any way derogatory  to   my   position   in  ibis
House."
Mr. Porstor "A iiinn cannot
have a position ill Iliis House,
nml get land (rom the House,
without using his position in tho
House lo get it, I know llml the
honorable gentleman always said
tiiul he wns Interested, Wo nil
knew that he was. What virluo,
therefore, wus there in his statement that he wns interested?
The fact of tho mailer was thai
lie supported lho Government
upon nil occasions, and Ihal support gave him 11 pull upon the
Government, It is Impossible to
occupy a seat in this House und
get land from the Government
rungenieuts for the obtaining of
tho money to build the road that
it would nearly be 11 breach of
faith on the part of the House to
make any change in the Bill,
But no such arrangement hud
matured for tlie securing of that
inonoy."
Colonol Bilker ''The honorable gentleman speaks what is not
true."
Mr. Porstor—"I know that the
Dominion Government hud to

DEWEY   STRATEGY   THE   BEST |
Sir John Holcomb Hub No Doubt
That the American ForceB Made
a Lauding.
New York, May 3.—A dispatch to the World from London
•ays:
England has been staggered
by Commodore Dewey's overwhelming victory. The superiority of the United States
squadron was recognized, but it
was fully believed that it would
have been more than counterbalanced by the assistance afforded the Spanish licet by the submarine mines and the powerful
shoro batteries,
The splendid soamituship and
valor of Commodore Dewey in
forcing an entrance to Manilla
harbor In tho fact of these defenses excitosinlonso admiration,
while among naval experts the
dispatch with whicli the American squadron disposed of the
Spaniards is held to prove thai
Commodore Dewey employed
the resources at his command
with the highest possible amount
of effectiveness,
Sir Charles Beresford said:
"It wus a brilliant sl roke. Everything, ns 1 said to you before,
depends upon the man in modern
naval warfare. Dewey is an able
officer, He brought his conl and
workshops with him. He
thought out and planned the
whole affair with consummate
skill ami forethought."
"Do you gather that the shore
batteries were useless?"
"No, 1 should not say that.
Dowoy's strategy was thoroughly
good. II wns business from
starl o linisli. t)i course, when
be gol inside Hie harbor lie could
easily pound the Spanish ships,
und he did II splondldly. li wus
ii ruse of short, sharp and decisive work, if yon like; but. irom
the information already lo band,
I  could not say il tenches us
much, except as I contend that
everything depends on the individual man. It was Dewey's
victory.''
'-As to the political results—do
you thing Germany will like it?"
"No, Germany won't, nor will
the Japanese, either, but the
United States should be satisfied
anyway."
Sir John Holcomb, a high
naval and artillery authority,
said:
"From the accounts .1 gather
that the Spanish Meet is destioy-
ed completely. I dare say that
when we receive information
from non-Spanish sources its
completeness will be even more
striking. What appears to me
and those with whom I have discussed the news the most disgraceful feature of the action is
the failure of the Spanish batteries to give effective assistance
to their Heel. Of course, the
licet itself wns entirely outclassed, Ilul tlinl does not account for Dewey boing permitted
to cuter the harbor, which is
provided with modern defenses.
"1 have no doubt the Americans have made a landing in
some convenient position, and as
no damages to Dewey's ships
have been specified, be can easily
make good what injury may have
been done. The fact that he was
able to form up the squadron for
the blockade of Manilla Immediately after defeating the Spanish
fleet proves that his ships could
havo sustained no material Injury.
"The result of I his engagement sustains the view I expressed some lime since, thnl
the Spaniards nre no match
whatever for the Americans,
either In strategy or in lho skilled use ul' modern weapons oi
nri."
Gibson Howies, M. IE, nlso an
authority on naval matters, snid:
"Il is perfectly clear. In my
opinion, llinl lho Spanish licet
hns been knocked into n cocked
liui. Thoy are only lolling us
know lhe  facts  by degrees anil
some things in their dispatches
are not easy to comprehend,
"They say tho Americans landed Iheir wounded, but Dewey
would never do that unless he
he had taken a base of operations on shore, and doubtless we
will hear later that he has done
so. But unless he gets assistance
from the insurgents he may find
il difficult to maintain himself.
He has, under the circumstances,
beeu unable to bring soldiers to
make tho power of the Heel effective, But, nevertheless, lie
achieved a brilliant piece of
work, and the more wo hear of
it the more admirable it is likely
to appear."
Political consequences likely
to ensue from the United States'
capture of the Philippines have
caused intense interest here.
Germany lias long had covetous
eyes upon these rich lands, while
British interests have been a bar
to any deal between Spain and
Germany in relation to them.
Japan also is known to eagerly
desire these possessions.
Dewey's victory has suddenly
placed the United States in an
important possition in connection with the far eastern question, European interests in Cuba
are remote, almost, academic, but
the Philippines is an entirely
different matter, lt is believed
that the United States can use
the possessions as n lever
to force Spain to abandon Cuba
through the pressure of Ku-
ropeini powers, who do not waul
a Spanish colonial disruption in
Ibe far east to lake place until
the Chinese question is settled.
Sir Charles Dilko snid:
"The Unilod Statos possession
of llu- Philippines niises Humorous important anil dollcttlopoints
Tor the consideration of the pow
ers. I should nol bo surprised
Ifovontually the Uuilod Slates
secured Hn* valuable good will ol'
Japan by handing over lho
Philippines lo her."
The idea, if nol the hope,
provelent hero thai ihe Spanish
Boot would prove n tough oppon-
l-'nll I'rii-i's.   ('ori'tTtSi'li'('Ui)ii.

all confidence in the Spanish

suggestion was thrown out that
