•claims. The strike is a large body
of galena ore. The claim lies to
the east of the present workings,
and is on what is known as Split
.Creek.
On Wild Horse Creek.
Win. Bidding and others who
have a claim of 80 acres of placer
ground on Wild Horse Creek,
huve i'iiii a tunnel in 170 feet.
The object of lhe tunnel is the
finding of what is supposed to be
.an old channel of the creek,
which they expect to strike in
»bout 30 feel.
South Fork of St. Mary's.
W. Belding has made a rich
strike ol copper ore on the South
Fork of tbe St. Mary's River.
The strike is on the same contact, as the now famous Pyramid
croup, distant about live miles.
The surface ore is u copper sulphide anil pyritios. The width
.of the vein is from two to six
reel of solid ore. The hanging
wall is porphyry and the foot
vvall diorile. From assay re-
,-urns the value of the ore on the
suface is as follows: No. 1 assay, copper 1\ per cent., silver 5

has been run lor a distance of Iti
teot. The ore is a chalcopyrite
.anil pyrrhotite. Assay returns

.ami large values in silver and
gold. Al presenl he Alki camp,
.as well as lhe Pyramid, i.s reach-
,eil from Fort Stoele by wagon

New Striko.
A new strike of galena bus

mineral cluim. ('bus. B. Farrell
and John Day are llie owners.
The Society Girl lies east of the
fatuous St. Eugene mine.
St. Eugene Mine.
The wagon road from Moyie
City to the St. Eugene mine will
be completed in about 10 days.
The road is about two and one-
half miles in length and will be
of an easy grade, whicli will enable the mine owners to use almost any means of transportation for their ore to the railway.
At the mine some in or 12 men
are working.
Mining Notes.
Prank P. Hogan, manager of
the Sullivan Group Mining Co.,
previous to leaving for Hie south,
informed us that his company
would put in machinery and develope the property. This will
furnish a nice bit of work for a
large number of men this winter.
H. L, Amnio has taken a eon-
tract to run 50 feet of a tunnel
on the Lone Star minerul claim.
Tbe Cone Star is situated on the
Eust Fork* of Wild Horse Creek.
Il is reported that Alex Poison
has a small force al work doing
the assessment on the Coranado
group.
On the North Fork of St.
Mrry's a large number of men
are at work developing some
gold properties.
We learn that negotiations are
being made for tlie purchase of
tlie Moyie and Queen of the Hills
mineral claims.
There is an increased amount
of activity in mining circles at
present. We learn thai several
large deals in mining properties
were made during tlie past week.
Tlie owners of many properties
are laying in supplies, intending
to develop their claims as rapidly as possible. Now locations
are being made every day, and
the general feeling is tliat we
are on the verge of unusual
activity in the mining industry
of the district.
Where to Go.
If you want a silver-lead mine
get u cluim near the North Star,
Sullivan group, Moyie or Tracy
Creek. If you want a good gold
properly, try Wild Horse Creek.
If copper is what you are looking for, Wild Horse Creek. Hull
River, Sand or Tracy Creeks is
where you will lind it. Vou are
certain lo lind just what you
want in the Fort Sleele district.
The mines in East Kootenay are
all riglil; they afford a sale and
profitable investment. The sen-
son of isilll will be one ol vust
development, producing and
shipping of mineral all over the
districl.

THE  ELECTION  PROTESTED.
Proceedings Taken to Void the Return of Col. Baker.
(Special to -rni-i l'uusi'iiti'n.u.)
Vancouver, July *.*20,— A protest was tiled here today by Win.
Baillio, who is ul present in the
city, against the elect ion of Hon.
Col. Baker in South Enst Kootenay. Bribery, undue influence,
and corruption in many other
forms are alleged.
HOW  THE PARTIES   STAND.
The Opposition Will Form the Government   Henderson   to Fall  in
Line- One Member From Cassiar.
(Speotul iiiTui;l'itiisi'KeTi»u.)
Vancouver, July 26.—The Opposition now hold the fort, having lil members to tho Government 17. It is now almost
certain that this will be increased
by Henderson, Independent,
joining the Opposition forces.
Advices from Cassiar indicate
tliat the Opposition will elect
one member. There i.s no possible chance for a coalition government. Two thousand dollars
was posted today and protest
tiled to contest Baker's election.
A Sharp Trick,
(Siiet'lul lo'l'HK I'uiisi'iici'uH.i
Vancouver, July 2li.— The Opposition have elected in members, Governmenl IE, Independent 2, wilh Cassiar to hear
from. The Government played
a rather sharp trick, having tlio
nominations come off in Cassiar
before the Opposition were
aware tlmt the writs had been issued. This they were enabled
to do on account of the distance
that the constituency of Cassiar
is removed from the lower pari
I part of the Province. However,
i three men hare been nominated
[there, and il is believed that al
least one of them will support
I the Opposition and his election is
regarded as certain, thus giving
to the Opposition the glorious
: result of 20 to 18 when lhe whole
election is completed, and possibly 21 to 17. Tbe Opposition is
determined lo resist every effort
leading lo a coalition. Protest
against Baker has been tiled. If
the Opposition fail to get. a working majority lhe Lieutenant-
Governor will call IheIJousent as
early a date as possible, the Government defeated on test vole
and go back lo the people for reelection.
NEW   PRESBYTERIAN  CHURCH
Laying the Foundation of the Building in Fort Steele.
This interesting ceremony took
place on Thursday afternoon at
18:80.    The weather wus delightful and   the   people   were  well
represented,   The contract for
the building having been recently lei and lhe work having lo be
entered   upon   immediately,   it
wus   felt    lliul   the   ceremony
should mil be delayed, yet, even
with lhe short Intimation, Ihere
was a good muster of the peoplo.
The proceedings began wilh
the singing of  the appropriate
hymn No.   Ilii,   "The Church's
One   Foundation   Is  Jesus,   Ibe
j Lord."   The Rev. ,1. G, Duncan,
j who has bud charge ol Ibe con
gregatioti tor tho lasl six monihs,
then  rend   fr    lOpb. II  (1*1-22)
wherein ClU'lsl is declared  In be
"the chief corner-stone in whom
.all the building lil l.v   inn I lo
.gelber,  gl'OWOtll   unto  uu  holy
temple in the Lord."   lie thon
llddl'OSSOd the people thus:
"We nre here giilbereil together in Hie presence ol Cod
for tbe purpose ol laying Ibe
foundation of lho lirst Presby
tartan church In South Musi
Kootenay. We hope and ure assured thai the example sel loday
I will be followed by other places
in this new counlry. Dp to this
lime we have been worshipping
ill the opera house, but we shall
soon be worshipping in the new
building of which we pui the
lirst foundation post down this
afternoon. We want a place that
is properly adapted for the observance of religious ordinances
and lln* worship of God; in a
quiet place, anil yel so si uut ted
as to be within easy reach of the I
people. Here we are in a good
position, two lot.-, having been
kindly donated to us, and today
the building of lhe church begins. We hope and trust that il
will be an ornament to lhe lown,
and lhat within its walls they
who fear the Lord will moot and
take counsel of Cod. We all
know that the building does not
constitute the church, but the
people of Ood who assemble
within its walls, and we also
know that the Lord is not confined to temples made with hands,
but wherever there is it praying
heart, and, therefore, we begin
the building of ibis church. Let
our aim and endeavor be: tlie
conversion of sinners and the
edification of believers, Lei us
pray that the Lord will bless this
enterprise begun today so auspiciously for 'Paul may plant
and Apollos waler, but the Lord
alone giveth the increase.' "
After the address the Rev.
Duncan prayed for the blessing
of God. lie then culled upon
Dr. Watt iind Mr. Mather to lay
the first foundation post of the
church, and this ceremony was
performed neatly and quickly.
The hymn "Rock of Ages" was
sung, and Dr. Watt addressed
tb people and referred in felicitous termsto the important step
taken that duy in laying the
foundation of the lirsl Presbyterian church in this new country, and be believed that the
spiritual and also lhe social improvement of lhe people would
be advanced thereby.
Mr. McKay also spoke about
the importance of the event and
the duty of Christian people to
unite in forwarding a movement
calculated to promote the spiritual well-being of Ibe people. A
hymn was then sung and the

IiEiiiTKUCTIOH    OF    WAESHIPS.
1'J.une Gunbonts Wiped Out, One
Sunk, a Fifth Driven Ashore and
Disabled and Three Transports
Destroyed.
Playo del Esle, Guantanamo
Bay. July UL—The following is
the official account of the latest
naval victory—that at Mnnzan-
illo, modestly told by Commander
Todd, of the United States gunboat Wilmington, in his report
port to Admiral Sampson:
"At 7 o'clock on the morning
«f July 18, the vessels on the
blockade duty in this vicinity,
the Wilmington, Helena, Hist,
Scorpion, Hornet, Wampatuck
and Osceola, approached the
.hiu'bor of Manzanillo from the
westward, At 7:30 o'clock the
Wilmington and Helena entered
the northern channel toward the
city; the Scorpion and Osceola
tin? mid-channel, and Hie Hist,
Hornet nnd Wampatuck the
south channel, tiie movements of
.the vessels being so timed as to
bring them within effective range
of the shipping at the same moment.
Three Transports Burned.
"At 7:30 tire was opened on
the shipping, and after a deliberate lire lasting about two and a
half hours three Spanish transports, El Gloria, Jose Garcia and
La .Pnrissima Concepcion, were
iburned and destroyed The Pontoon, which was the harbor
•guard and store ship probably
for ammunition, was burned and
Mown up.
Three Gunboats Destroyed.
■"Three gunboats wero destroyed. One other was driven ashore
and sunk and a third was driven
■ashore and is believed to have
been disabled. The firing was
maintained at a range wliich is
believed to be beyond the range
of the shore artillery. It was
■continued until, after a gradual
■.closing-ill, ihe shore batteries
opened lire al a comparatively
short range, when the ships
were recalled, the object of the
expedition having been accomplished and the ideas of the commander-in-chief carried out as I
understand them—that is, to do-
sfcroy the enemy's shipping but
not to change the field batteries
of the forts. No casualties on
board, our vessels, Great care
wns taken in directing the tiro

anything useful. She was in al:
the death of Cervera's squadron,
nnd single-handed, without the
aid of so much as a shot from
any other ship, she engaged the
two Spanish torpedo boat destroyers ttnil destroyed them,
"While this performance litis
amused and interested, it has
also upset all the calculations
and theories of the British naval
experts. And it has utterly confounded the predictions of those
newspaper naval experts who,
at the beginning of hostilities,
ad no doubt that Spain's torpedo boat destroyers made up
for all other weaknesses of the
navy, and- put it on an equality
with that of the United States.
And a converted pleasure yacht
destroys a brace ol! lliein offhand on the very lirst occasion
that presents itself! Naucical
England is first amazed, then
amused. But these sensations
jive place to others more serious. "Not only the perforin anco
of the Gloucester, but the whole
engagement oil' Santiago, in
which an entire squadron was
destroyed in an hour or two at
the Insignificant cost erf one life,
is exciting very deep interest in
Bri lish naval circles. A re Brit'
ish ships, British ordnance, and
llrilish sailors capable of such a
wonderful performance? Are
Brilisli naval methods behind the
times? American armor plate is
conceded to be of the very best;
but there is a growing suspicion
that American guns and American marksmanship are superior
to the English. It is not unlikely
thul Santiago will operate as a
revelation, and that in consequence of it there will In' an
awakening wliich will lead to
greater attention to all* the details that go to mako effective
naval warfare. Guns and ammunition of the besl must be
provided, and abovo all there
must bo increasing gun practice,
until Britislt sailors can shoot as
Cast and as straight as any
others, ll was the rapidity as
well as the accuracy of the firing
al Santiago that helped to make
such short work of the Spanish
navy.
No (I011I1I the American navy
is efficient, and, ship lot' ship,
wlll stand up against any in the
world; perhaps boat the best of
them, It is aqiiestion, however,
whether the rapid and complete
destruction of Cervera's squadron was not owing less to tho
superiority   of   the  Americans
than to the very great inferiority
of the Spanish ships, guns, ammunition and marksmanship,
The English may take some comfort out of that thought.—Winnipeg Free Press.
SMITH & LINDSAY,
French and English Navies.
The Gaulois is anxious to know
whether the French navy is in a |
lit condilion to go to war with!
England. We may tell our Parisian contemporary lhat it is not,
decidedly not; but the Quulois
did not ask our opinion, but that
of Rear Admiral Dupoiit. The
reply of that gallant officer is interesting, lie says that llie
French guns are more powerful,
the French ships are faster, and
can maintain a higher rate of
speed than tiie British. He believes, in fact, that the two Ileets
would be about equal—but for
Britain's numerical superiority.
In other words, if Britain would
kindly cut down the number of
her ships to equal those of
France, then our neighbors
might go to war with us at sea
with an equal chance of success.
But, unfortunately, from a
French point of view, Great
Britain will not adopt that reasonable policy, and the consequence is that Admiral Dupoiit
is obliged lo declare that
"French naval inferiority is
notorious." But, in spite of the
notoriety of lhis fact, tlie Admiral does not dispair. France
has no fear of England, he asserts, for she would avoid pitched battles and would organize
such a system of privateering
that nil England's commerce-
would be destroyed. This treats
the Declaration of Paris, which
abolishes privateering, as tion-
existant. But even with the removal of that barrier, is it quilo
sure tliat tlio French lleet would
have no chance in a
war between lhe two conn-
tries, and so long ns the British
lleet maintains its undoubted
supremacy, we believe peace between England and Franco will

I ween war with a specific object
and an indefinable war of conquest. The present pause in the
hostilities is held to prove that
the United States is reluctant to
plunge into a wider sphere of
action, and it may be confidently
predicted that if direct negotiations are opened without delay
both countries will iind their
views on the main point—that of
tbe future of Cuba—far from irreconcilable.
The growing dissensions be-

lhe Americans are  noted here

I all sides I   bear 'said:   "If we

the island should be annexed by

SATURDAY, JULY 30, 18118.
VIOLENT   AND   ILLEGAL.
How tiie Annexation of Hawaii Is
Regarded in England.
The Manchester, Eng., Guardian says: -'One can imagine the
way in whioh Washington or
Franklin would have regarded
the series of actions concerning
the seizure of Hawaii by an act
as violent and illegal as the Jam-
son raid, the imposition upon
100,000 persons of a government
in which only 11,000 had a share,
and the transfer of the islands
and people, like a farm, with the
stock and cattle, from the oligarchy which seized them to the
foreign government that coveted
them. The American imperialist,
with a smile of Indulgent, rather
than apologetic, compassion for
his parents, who clung to the
highest ideals, does not' censure
Washington or Franklin, but
makes great allowance far them,
uud is persuaded as firmly as
Englishmen or Frenchmen or
Germans that lie intends to go
about doing good to any people
whose land comes in his way,
and has not yel been appropriated by otlier philanthropists,"

Speculate in Minos.
The Toronto Globe has an editorial article on the question of
tho Dominion government officials in the Yukon speculating in
.mining claims, It starts with
■tilii! statement that there can ho
no doubt of the soundness of the.
views that officials in the Yukon
having anything to do with mining chtiins ought, not to speculate
or in any way endeavor to mako
profit for themselvesoutof thoso
claim's, Tlio Globe refers to Its
own Ottawa dispatch a few days
ago in which it was contended
that while llm officials having to
do with lho administration of
mines shuulil not hold or speeti-
