SPANISH AMERICAN WAR.
CONSUMMATE     STRATEGY     OF
AMERICAN NAVAL OFFICERS
A Huge Collier Sunk in the Entrance to Santiago Harbor now
Locks in the Spanish Fleet A
Daring Move in which Spaniards
are Completely Outwitted — Men
Who Go in For Almost Certain
Death Come out Covered with
Glory.
On Board Associated Press
Dispatch Boat Dauntless, off
Santiago, June Si, via Kingston,
.Tune 4.—Rear Admiral Sampson
during Friday morning decided
to close tlie narrow narbor entrance to Santiago by sinking
the collier Merriniiic, loaded
with coal, in the channel.
He called for volunteers to go
to ii I most certain death and 4000
men offered themselves, Lieutenant Hobson and six men were
chosen and at 4 a. in. Friday the
Merriinai'. under her own steam,
entered the channel under a terrible Spanish fire.
The vessel was riddled with
projectiles, but she anchored and
swung around. Lieutenant Hob-
son then set off an internal torpedo with electric attachment.
There was an explosion, the
Merriiiiuc sunk, the channel was
closed and apparently Cervera
will be unable toescape.
Kingston, Jamaica, June 4.—
Lieutenant Hobson and the hero
•crew of the Merriiiiuc were
saved in the following manner:
Unable after the sinking of
their vessel lo make their way
back through the storm of shot
and shell, they rowed into the
harbor of the Spanish flagship
and were taken on board unharmed. The Spanish admiral,
under a flag of truce, on Friday
sen! word to the American admiral that he offered to exchange
prisoners, adding that, in the
meantime Hobson and his party
would be treated with the greatest kindness.
Heroes of the Merrimac—Lieutenant Richmond Hobson, Daniel
Montague, George Charette, J.
E. Murphy, Oscar Deegnan, John
P. Phillips, John Kelly.
How It was Accomplished.
Lieutenant Hobson appears lo
havo carried out his plan to the
smallest details except as regards
the method  of escaping.    The
rowboat in which the crew were I
. to attempt toescape was either
blown up or shot   to pieces,   l'tu
Lieutenant     llobson     drifted
ashore on   un old catamaran,
which was slung over Ihe ship's
■side at the last moment as an extra   precaution.    On  reaching
shore the men were taken prisoners and sent to Santiago City
under guard.    Later they were
taken to   Morro  castle,  where
they an' now.   Captain Oveido,
Admiral Cervera's chief of staff,
who boarded   the  New  York
under a Hag of truce, did not
give further details of the cap-
lure.   Tho bravery of the Americans evidently excited as much
admiration among tho Spaniards
as it did among tho men of the
American  fleet.    The prisoners
will be perfectly safe, and will
probably be well treated while
they remain   in  Morro  castle.
The lleet is wild with delight tonight over the termination of the
most daring expedition since the
destruction of the confederate
ironclad Albemarle by Lieutenant (lushing in 1804,    The admiral is  just as  glad  as  tho
youngest Jackie,
Cadet Powell's Story.
Cadet Powell, who  was tho
]asl man to see Lieutenant Hobson before his start, and who
had charge of the launch during
its perilous trip, after much
pressure told the story of his experience.    He said:
"Lieutenant Hobson took a
short sleep for a few hours,
which was often interrupted. At
a quarter to 1 o'clock lie came ou
deck and made a final inspection,
giving his last instructions.
Then we had a little lunch. Hobson was as cool as a cucumber.
About 2:80 o'clock I took the
men who were not going on the
trij) into the launch and started
for the Texas, the nearest ship,
but had to go back for one of the
assistant engineers, whom Hobson finally compelled to leave.
I shook hands with Hobson tho
last of all. He said: 'Powell,
watch the boat crew when we
pull out of the harbor. We will
be cracks, rowing 30 strokes to
the minute.'
' 'After leaving the Texas I saw
the Merrimac steaming slowly
in. It was only fairly dark then
and the shore was quite, visible.
We followed about three-quarters
of a mile astern.    The Merriiiiuc
bravery his intimate associates
know lies beneath the modest
manner.
London, June 4.—According to
a dispatch from Madrid, El Her-
aldo, with regard to the situation
at Santiago de Cuba, says:
"It is one more disenchantment which proves that there is
no remedy for Spain's misfortunes, Cervera's squadron at
Santiago is of little advantage
either for itself or for what it
represents. It can neither hinder the Yankee expedition nor
strengthen the defense of Havana. Spain was never lead before through such a straight
road to perdition."

At the meeting called by Mon. Col. Baker in this city
Thursday evening last, when confronted by Win. Baillie,
Opposition Candidate, Col. Baker was compelled to
make the following admissions:—
He admitted that he was opposed to the restriction of
Chinese immigration.
He admitted that 400,000 acres of coal lands that had
been given by the Province to build the Crow's Nest Railway
had been retained by himself and his friends, and would not
be used for the purpose of building the railway.
He admitted that he had done nothing to secure the
building of the Crow's Nest Railway into Fort Steele.
He admitted that he had voted to give the Cassiar Railway Company a half interest in any minerals that might be
discovered by prospectors in the district covered by that
company's land grant.
He admitted that he had strongly advocated the Yukon
Railway scheme, by which $ 1,600,000 of the taxes paid by
the people of this Province was voted towards a railway to
develop a mining a mining region outside of this province,
thus booming a district which was depopulating East Koot

increased rapidly. We steamed
slowly and lost sight of the Merrimac in the smoke which the
wind carried off shore. It hung
heavily. Before Hobson could
have   blown up   tho Merrimac,
the western battery picked up
and commenced firing. They
shot wild and we only heard the
shots. We ran in still closer to
shore and the gunners lost sight
of us. Then wo heard the explosion of the torpedoes on the
Merrimac.
Unlit daylight we waited just
outside the breakers half a mile
to the westward of Morro keening a lookout for the boat or
swimmers, but saw nothing.
"Hobson had arranged to meet
us at that point, but thinking
that someone might have drifted

Moyle City Leader,
M. J. Haney, chief of construction of the Crow's Nest
Railway, did not come as far

his trip over the road, having
turned back at Cranbrook. He
was accompanied by Mrs. Haney
and Theodore Knowlton, super
inlendenl ol* construction from
101 If Rivor east. In an interview
published in the Wardnor Inter-
national, he said:
"I am confident lhat steel will
be laid to the Kootenay liiver
early in July. Everything is in
excellent shape, and now it is
only a question of Iracklaying.
The trestles necessary al the
loop will be completed this week
and all grading contracts to Klk
River will be completed in ill)
days. From ihere to Wardner
lhe .(irk is light. We have an
extra battalion of 200 men and
teams lo put on at any place that
it w il be necessary to force the
work, so that there is little
chalice of experiencing any serious delays. The work of driving
r'..e piling for the Elk River
bridge will commence lhis week,
and the piles for the Kootenay
River bridge will be driven only
a short time before the steel
reaches there. We are anxious
to avoid lhis work on rising
water."
'•Under ordinarily favorable
circumstances. Mi'. Haney, how
fast will you lay steely"
"Three miles a day. We ought
to average that, and will try and
do a little better. That rate
would give us 'JO miles a month,
bul we want to lay 100."
Under the rate of progress Mr.
Haney speaks of, the steel will
lie laid into Moyie City by the

of the company in Now York
city, offering thorn 10 cents per
ton for the tailings on a basis of
100,000 tous. The president rend
Norbury more than the continual
uproar in court, created by liis
puns.
"What is your occupation, my
WEALTH  111  MINE DEBRIS.
Tapped Their Foreheads Signifcflnt
ly and Laughed.
There are some men in this
world who have to toil for a
mere apology of a living, and
then there nre others, says the
San Diego Sun, One of ihese
latter is Mr, Luce, of Cargo
Muchaeo. Luce's experience
reads like a romance, Por over
twenty years he had knocked
about ihe coast, on the desert, in
the mountains, prospecting and
mining, and had finally, by hard
work ami closest economy, managed to scrape together a lew
hundred dollars.
One day, ou the slimes of llie
Colorado, some twenty miles
noi'th of Yuma, lie mei an old
Mexican who lold liim of a (le-
serlctl mine some ten miles buck
from the river and seven miles
north of Hedges. Luce's Interest was aroused, and be visited
that mine, to lind there an
abandoned twenty-stamp mill
whicli had pounded away for
many years and then shut down.
He then learned the story. The
mill was on leased ground. The
lesee had mined the property on
shares and bud done fairly well,
although the ore was not entirely free milling. One day the
vein "pinched out." The mining man was sure ho bad simply
lost, the lead, and it was thei'oall
right, but the owners.refused to
put iipaceut to help him lind it
again, and Iiruii of living on the
desert, he threw up lhe whole
business and lell.
Luce examined the property
and discovered that there was a
small mountain of tailings, lhe
accumulation of years, pilod up
behind the mill,   lie lesleil these
tailings with cyanide, Then he
measured llio pile roughly nml
estimated thoro was ovor 100,000
Ions   of  the   Stuff  then*.    Thai
the letter, looked surprised and honest man'*-" he asked a wit
called   the   director
together.
They read the letter, looked
wise, tapped iheir foreheads
significantly and laughed to each
other.
"This pour fellow Luce should
bo called a 'goose.' " said one.
"Desert's proved too much for
him—probably gone daft," observed another.
Not one of them thought those
tailings were worth anything,
and they had almost forgotten that old inino out on the
Colorado desert. Bul they answered the letter, tolling Luce
to go ahead.
This was in April of lasl year.
On receipt of the letter, Luce
Immediately erected a cyanide
plant .costing him about $100 of
his own and bis friends' money.
Then he lured fifteen Mexicans
and Indians and began work on
those tailings, The other day
some repreeeutativesof the mine
couipiuiy were returning from
San Francisco, nnd passing
through the doser'., thought
they would visit the mine.
"How are you''" said Luce,
"(Had lo see you. By the way,
we might as well lix up our little
account now as at any time,"
and .so saying he threw the astonished (lolhaniiles a check for
$10,000', Then he explained thai
within the nine months he bail
been running the cyanide plant
bo had cleaned up $45,000, and
that there was plenty of tailings
in sight to not him $200,000 within three years.

"So do I," said the judge.
When Lord Norbury was being
buried, the grave was so deep
that lhe ropes by which the undertaker was letting down the
coffin didn't reach to the bottom.
The coffin was left,hanging midway while someone went for

"Aye," cried one in the crowd,
