.DISMISSED.
WE ARE THE GOVERNMENT
The Turner - Pooley - Baker
.Government Will Now Sit
'On Opposition Benches
jiuieutenant-Governor Molnneas Has
Dismissed the Turner Cabinet.
We have on more than one occasion pointed out that the utter
defeat of tlie Turner Government was au accomplished fact,
and late dispatches from Victoria' aud Vancouver confirms all of
the statements lriade by the
Pkospectok,
The following telegram, which
was received ou the Ilth hist,
fells its own story of the utter
demoralization and fall of the
Taruer-Pooley and Baker's Chinese Decoy Duck Government.
Vancouver August 9—-To The
Pho.si'rutou. Lieutenant-Governor A'lcluness has dismissed
the Government ami called upon
jfewens to form a new ministry,
Beavens has accepted. House
•wSl probably be dissolved immediately and a new general election held.
Baillie.
Consternation and dismay was
written upon the countenances
of the Baker contingents of this
place when the above bulletin
was posted at The Prospector
affi.ce, announcing that the Turner Government was dismissed
.fay* Lieutenant-Governor Mc
Lmess, and that a new ministry
was to be formed by the victorious Opposition. Plausible details
to show that such a statement
was not and could not be true
were made by the subservient
Bakor faction. It is a fake tliere
ti nothing in it, says one. It is
a Baillie hoax says another,
Baker won't stand it, says a
ibird, what will be the result of
such a proceeding says a newly
appointed official. Why you got
it where the cbicken got the axe
■says an Opposition man, you can
*.si1 on Opposition benches and
see how it is for yourself says
another Opposition voter, for we
are the Government says a third
Opposition elector.
Many of those who supported
the Government feel a sense of
relief at its defeat. Tho system
j\nd methods practised'by Baker
and liis henchmen have created
a feeling that is hostile to the
old regime, and tho new government in returning to the counlry
for its suffrage will Hnd ample
;upport from this riding,

A Good Oompany.
It is a fortunate thing for tho
Port Sleele district', that a. number of strong companies are securing properties in the district..
Among the most enterprising
aud pushing companies is the
Hall Smelting and Mining Co,,
of Nelson, this Company have
secured at least five group of
claims and are negotiating for
several others. So far tlie representatives of the Company are
well pleased with the showings
of mineral on the different properties bonded, and work has already commenced on three
groups, the Blue Grouse, Lone
Star aud Equator, and the Big
Throe: work on the Wasa and
Mammoth Will commence at
once. We learn that a strong
rapid development will, bo done,

The Perry Creek Gold Fields
will no doubt receive considerable attention during the remainder of the season. Mine owners
in that vicinity are much elated
with the showing that has been
made during the past few
months. At this time thore is
no reason to doubt that Perry
Creek will make a groat gold
camp before the sea'sou ends.
The Provincial Mineralogist has
made a most searching and
thorough examination of most
of the properties in that
section, and we learn that his
report will be most Haltering.

GENERAL   ADVANCE
OF   MILES'   FORCES
The Main Body of American In-
vadors Is Moving* Towards San
Juan With None to Stay Its
Progress.
Ponce, Porto Rico, Aug. 7.—
Morning—A general advance of
tlie American forces began this
morning.
The remainder of General
Ernst's brigade, consisting of
tho advance center, constituted
by two batteries, moved out at (i
o'clock and a part of the Eleventh
Infantry of General Henry's division started to the loft toward
Adjuntas, Troop A of New
York', the Philadelphia city
troop H of tlie Sixth regulars
are conveying General Brook's
transportation column along the

TENSION   EXTREME.
British-Russian Discord Dangerously
Clone to tho Fighting Point.
London, Aug. 0.— That extreme dipl.oiiiii.tic tension exists
between St. Petersburg and London is generally' admitted today,
though officials deprecate alarmist reports which were, current
yesterday.
It is hoped that the Armor
stand adopted by the Marquis oi
Salisbury during the last* few
days, which seems to have already created some misgivings
at St. Petersburg, will have the
desired effect of arresting Russian aggressiveness,
As evidence of the fact that
Great Britain appreciates the
gravity of the situation the As
sociatcd Press learns that the
admiralty is preparing for all
emergencies and that it will soon
be ready to mobilize. Every
officer and man on furlough or
half pay has been assigned to a
ship and instructed to be in
readiness to join at the earliest
moment. Therefore, practically
every ship iu the British navy
at the present moment has its
full war complement ready to go
to sea when the time arrives.
According to the Paris advices
Admiral Bedolliere, commanding
the French China squadron, has
cabled a demand for reinforcements and a large credit to be
applied in erecting fortifications.
There is some suspicion here the
action of the French admiral is
due to the intention to back up
Russian designs.

Mr. H. H. Morris, formerly
manager of the Canadian Bank
of Commerce at Barrie, Out.,

ft is reported'that Duke Almo-
dovar de Roi, the minister of
foreign affairs, and Mgr. Merry
Bel Vol, Spanish ambassador lo
the Vatican, will ,be selected to
represent Spain in the negotiations. The newspapers make
no comments on the'si tun Hon,

Queen Regent Approves,
M'tdaid, August 7—3 p, in. —
Senor Sogasia, the premier, has
just concluded ,his conference
with the Queen Regent. Her
majesty approves the general
lines of the reply of Spain to
America's peace terms, whicli
•Senor Segasta explained to her,
The reason for postponing I lie
cabinet council iuil.il'(I o'clock
this evening is thai the- note is
uot fully drawn up. The government believes that the United
S:ates will accept Spain's
answer, Avhich will certainly
reach tho White house by Tuesday. As a consequence of lhe
United States accepting the reply hostilities will immediately
afterwards be suspended. As
the reply to tho American terms
was only submitted toithe queen
regent today, all reports of her
approval yesterday of tlie American demands are necessarily
without foundation.
No Talk of Assembling Cortes.
Paris, August, 7-The Madrid
correspondent of the Temps
says:
"Tho cabinet council this
morning discussed the question
of assembling the cortos, but no
decision was reached, as lhe
ministers desire lo ascertain if
the United States considers the
approval of parliament uocessary
lo llie definite signing of peace."
FORCED UPON HER,
Spain Says She Therefore Can Not
Discuss American Proposals,
London, August 7 -The Madrid correspondent of the Daily
Mall, telegraphing Sunday,
says:
The answer of the Spanish
government declares lhat Spain
cannot discuss the American proposals, but only accepts Ihem because Ihey aro imposed on her
by force, Only a few unessential changes in tlie American demands were asked for, and it is
not expected that President Mc*
Kinley will refuse them.

Advertiser, of Vancouver, lias
to Say of the Contest in
East Kootenay,
Whiskey,    Promises   and  Hoppers
Won the Election,
Col. Baker has been elected in
Bast Kootonay, Soutli Riding, by
the slim majority of 15. four of
which, is believed, will be thrown
out upon a recount, as they were'
certainly improperly marked although allowed by lhe Returning Officer, Mr, O. Edwards, who
is an appointee of Col. Baker.
Col. Baker is much disappointed
at the result. and so are his
triends as they worked hard up
to the last day. No stone wus
left unturned by Col. Baker's
friends to carry the election.
There was whiskey galore, lots
of promises were made, uud the
men working on the roads for
the Qovonruieiit Wore bought in
to vote. It is reported that
those who had the courage to
say "Baillie" got dismissed.
The ei' se... i',''.vi.. lost because
some people who wer,'* at lirst
bitterly opposed to Col. Baker
"Hopped"for some reason best'*
known to themselves. All llie
old-timers went against Col,
Baker and he had to depend
upon the railway element to**
carry him through,
Those who did the effective
work during the campaign were
Messrs Harvey and Galoraibh—•
and il was pitiable to see Col.
Baker iu the hands of these
parties. They gave him a severe
political castigation. All regret
that one of these did not come
out as either would have carried
tho constituency. Col Baker
stated publicly that had Mr.
Galbraith offered himself as call-
dictate, he. Col. Baker, would not
have opposed him, Ou tho Friday before the election the Fort
Sleele Opera House was crowded
to hear the speakers. The Opposition frii.i, Messrs, Baillie,
Galbraith and Harvey, carried
the meeting as against Oil. linker and Wall, who appeared we:ik
opponents.
II. is reported that tho return
of Col. Baker will be protested
and stnps are, now being taken
to lhat end. It is slated that if
this is clone .sonic sensational
disclosures will be made, Tho
"Prospector" did good work for

Su the matter of the St. Law-'
•4-ence  mineral  claim   and   the
Ssuau   mineral claim,   at   Fort
iStoele  the 5th  day of August
1898, tlie matter submitted to me
its arbiter, is the validity of the
location  of  the  St,   Lawrence
ininoral claim, and that involves
•a, decision ou validity of the Mid
had mineral claim.
1. The first point which
.claims my attention is the re
(Cording of the Midland ; as sec
tion lli states that uo claim of
foil size shall be recorded with
lontthe application being accompanied by an affidavit in form S.
The affidavit filed in the mining
.recorder's office under No, 4544,
is attacked as being null and void
in consequence of it not having
been signed, by the officer who
is claimed to have administered
the oath. 1 hold that it has
been proven tliat this was an act
of omission on the pari of a Government official, as the acting
mining recorder,in administering
the oath, was acting as a Government ollieial, I therefore ac
iW.pl, the affidavit lo the same extent as if it had been signed by
.the acting mining recorder.
2. I have now to consider
what weight is to be attached to
llio notices now appearing on the
posts. The evidence against
ithese notices consist of;—Fill-
lar's affidavit No. 4544; Mute
-evidence that the claim was lo*
«ate.d ou May 18th, ; McComb's
evidence that on May 11 tli. 18118,
l,ha posts wore datod May tilth,
I8U7 ; Fuller's evidence that the
fiasts were dated May 1.8th '1807.
1 havo myself examined the
jiDs.ts and can understand that
"bladf lead pencil marks on wood
«an be easily altered; I therefore
cannot accept thorn as sulllciotit
{woof ol what was on the posts
«« the tilth May ,1.8117, as against
fclie evidence I. have mentioned,
3. The terms of the affidavit
4541 must therefore govorn my
'decision as to the validity of the
record of the Midland,
From the evidence of Rao and
Fuller, it would appear that
.sometime in April 18117, Rao dictated to Fuller somo forms of

notices; Puller swears that he
followed the forms in writing the
notices 011 the posts, that he dictated from the forms in preparing the affidavit, and on reading
over the affidavit during his examinations he states the affidavit
is correct; Rae corroborates Fuller's evidence as to Fuller having
written the form in the memorandum book; Laidlaw states that
when writing out the affidavit
Puller read the information to
him from a slip of paper or a
book; the part of the affidavit
relating to tho notices on the
post being road to Rae, he swears
that they are in accordance with
the forms he gave to Fuller.
The affidavit 4544 being thus established and the notices now on
the posts being ruled out, the
next question is, does the affidavit contain the particulars
which Sec. 10 says shall be furnished to the mining recorder in
writing, and shall form part of
tho "record of the claim", aud
which Sec. 20 declares shall be
furnished, before' a free minor
shall be entitled to a record.
4. No. I Post seems to have
borne all the particulars required by tho act; the discovery post
seems to have borne many unnecessary particulars, but as to
the No. 2 Post the affidavit
reads :—
"I have written on post No. 2
the following words : "15011 in a
northerly direction lo post No, I"
What Sec. lli requires is that on
post No. 2 shall be written tho
name given to the mineral claim,
the name of the locator, and tho
date of lhe location. It is true
that sub-section of Sec. Ill provides that the failure of the locator to comply with any of the
provisions of the section, shall
not be deemed to invalidate such
location under certain circumstances, but one of tho conditions
is that the locator shall havo
mado a bona tide attempt to
comply with the provisions of
the act, that is, the requirements
of the whole act.
In this connection, section 24 is
one of the most important sections of the act, and it requires
the obtaining and recording ol!
cortillcates of work. Puller, tho
locator of the Midland, while
claiming to have done tho assessment work, admits that he did
not record it, bul has deliberately
abandoned his claim and cannot
obtain the benefits of sub-section
'd", Had a certificate of work

been obtained and recorded, lam
of the opinion that under the
terms of section 28 it would have
overcome the previous irregular
ities, but the holders of the Swan
mineral claim cannot avail themselves of any privileges or immunities to which the holder of
the Midland mineral claim was
entitled.
Ti. My decision therefore is :
(I) The record of the Midland
is null and void.
(?.) The record of the St Lawrence mineral claim is good and
has priority over the Swan mineral claim,
{■l) The record of tlie Swan
mineral claim is good except as
to so much of it as overlaps prior
locations.

The Saturday Review, London,
predicts a "war of extermination
between the Americans and Cubans, six monihs after the conquest of the island," and adds:
Cuba will corrupt the American
governors, and the reign of the
American boss is not likely to be
exemplary. The cost of the
whole proceeding will be more
than two hundred and fifty millions, and the game is uot worth
the candle. The new policy will
necessitate great change in the
American governmental system,
the President and House of Representatives acquiring the powers, and Uie Senate losing them,
The United Slates will speak in
a more potent voice in all international affairs than any continental country. None of the latter could inflict serious injury
upon the United States,
in the event of war, while America, before long, will be able to
sweep from the seas any continental navy. The time Is nol, very
far distant when the United
States will speak with an unequivocal, determined voice in
the far east, While loth at lirst
to meddle iu purely European
affairs, such events as Armenian
massacres will certainly lead the
churches of the United States to
raise a cry that such atrocities
be endod,	
Auvortiniii|* Ciiiuutii.
Agricultural shows and fairs
will bo held during the noxt
throe months in all parts of thu
United Kingdom, and numerous
requests for Canadian exhibits
have boon received at tho high
commissioner's office.    The ex
hibits usually consist of samples
of grain uud other Canadian produce, minerals and a collection
of photographic views. The
views shown of British Columbia
give a good idea of the chief industries of the province as they
represent mining, lumbering,
agricultural and fishing scenes.
At each fair an ollieial from the
office of lhe high commissioner
or nearest Canadian government
agent is present to furnish information regarding the Dominion,
and it has been clearly proved
thai these exhibits ;do much to
attract emigration to Canada.
Credit Where Credit is Hue.
The P-'OSPEOTOB credits Col.
laker with the statement thai;
he was returning to Victoria to
form a government with himself
as premier. No man is foolish
enough to make any such a remark, and Mr. Grace does not
believe it. He has simply allow-
ted his Nemesis, Mr. Baillie, lo
impose upon him again.—Cranbrook Herald.
The statement that Col. Baker
was to form a coalition government with himself as premier
was reported to this office by a
henchman of Col. Baker; and,
we can produce a dozen men in
Fort Steele, that report the same
as coming from the would-be
premier, Tho following article
from the Kamloops Sentinel
would indicate thai the Colonel
was talking through his hat at
Victoria as well as Port Steele :
"Hon. Col, Baker is another
thoroughly discontent! politician,
He has always believed that the
party made a mistake in selecting Hon. .1. H. Turner for ils
leader. Now he is convinced of
that fact. Tho honorable aud
gallant Colonel does not like the
Idea of sitting on lhe Opposition
benches. He has still a few
townsltes to dispose of, and his
plans lo boom them iu London,
after the manner of the notorious
Cranbrook estate transaction,
have all boen knocked on the
head. (lol. linker, upon Ins return to Victoria, intimated that
two or throe Opposition members
mighl be bought over, but
greatly to his disappointment
he found he had to deal wilh
men of a different calibre lo
the "machine majority" of (for
him) happier days.

SATGBDAY, AUGUST 18, 18118.
LONDON NOT A GOOD LOCATION.
For  Meeting*   of Spanish-American
Peace Commission,
New York, Aug, ii.—A dispatch to the Tribune from London says:
Madrid rumors to the effect
that; the final treaty of pence will
be negotiated in London alter
the preliminaries have been arranged in Washington cannot bo
confirmed here. No intimations
have been received to that effect
at the American embassy. Apart
from the difficulties that attend a
commission at this time iiiLondon
(hero are practical reasons for
the selection of some other capital ns flu', place for conducting
negotiations.
The Spanish government will
naturally desire to remove the
commissioners from the influence
of public opinion which favors
American retention of the Philippines, The American government if it decides to give up
those islands, under proper safeguard for securing a humane and
reformed government, will do
wisely to have the final negotiations take place elsewhere. Tho
embassy hero ought not to be
associated with any diplomatic
settlement which will be unpop-
1 ulur hi England.
Tliere is a conspicuous exception to the uniform practice, of
the English press of inininiiziiij;*
the difficulties and risks of permanent American occupation Of
the Philippines. There is a column special from Madrid in the
Times throwing much upon tlie
situation there and treating of
lhe character of Avtihuililo,
Ordinarily England is content to be convinced of
what; it wants it to believe. It desires the United
States lo keep tho Philippines so
us to keep Germany out and then
co-operate with the English in i
China.
The press is generally confident j
that the United States will have *
ttle trouble in governing thoi
islands; some, however, think
that Aquiualdo will either have
to be bought up at a high price
or killed off in civil war and that
the Germans aro ready enough
to intrigue with him.
The French are uot likely to
make any trouble for the Americans in the Philippines, but tho
German emperor might do so
and Aquiualdo would be liis
natural ally. He will not lie
disposed to keep quiet when he
is smarting from a rebuff, The
emperor is only too anxious to
divert the attention of his subjects to some fresh field.
VICTIMS  EXELRE IN STREETS.
Awful Plight of Four Thousand Ke.
concontmdos in Havana.
New York, Aug. II.—Accounts
of the condition of affairs in
Havana, Matanzas and Cardenas
have been given by passengers
who arrived from Siigua on the
steamer Fridtjord Manson. One
passenger who reached Sagua
by rail from Havana, said affairs
in lho capital are deplorable and
growing worse.   He said :—
"It is impossible lo got beef
at any price and horseflesh is
81 per pound. Beans costs 28
cents a pound, and very bad at
that. Eggs costs 35 cents each.
The supply of condensed milk is
practically exhausted, and the
little left is sold for §3 per can
such as you buy hero for lo
cents.
"On an average 10 fo 12 persons are found dead of starvation in. the streets every day.
and this tithes no account of
tho scores who daily die of hunger In the houses,
"No words can. describe the
horrors of Los Foeos, at the foot
of the Prado, where the recoil-
centrudos are horded together,
I was told there was 40(H) of
those miserable people in the
place when I came  away,   and
they are dying by hundreds, for
of course, nothing is being done
for them. The government lias
uot enough food for its own soldiers. Worse than this, the offic-
als beat and abuse them shame-
ful,y-" ________
ANXIOUS FOE. PEACE.
Madrid Government and People Aro
Unanimous.
New York, Aug. 3.—A dispatch to the Tribune from Madrid says:
Not only tho court, cabinet and
political men of the capital, but
the Madrid public as well are unmistakably in favor of peace at
any price. It is believed, that
any apparent opposition to the
terms arranged at Washington
will merely be for tlie sake of
appearance, nothing more.
Grave anxiety is felt, however,
as to the attituded df the army,
and the feeling in the provinces,
Several regiments in the Madrid
garrison are known to be hostile
to the government and the dy-
dasty, but it. is hoped thai any
open action can be restrained
until after lho conclusion of
peace.
General Polavieja has so fur
succeeded in curbing military
jingoism by his strong personal
influence, but thnt peace may be
the signal for internal disorders
is a peril .which Sagasta is now
trying to avert.

in the case of Neilson, his sympathies are with the Opposition
parly rather thnn with the Government. However, should they
both go over to the Turner
party, and should it secure the
two seats in Cariboo yet to bo
contested, the Government would
still bo unable to defeat
a want of confidence motion,
since upon the. election of a
Speaker, the Government would
be in 11 minority of one in the

is every reason to believe, and in

News Advertiser: While tho
silly and untruthful assertions of
some ol its organs, in regard lo
lhe i*i.imilieu or intentions of the
Government, may naturally
cause some irritation to many of
those who read them, we would
recommend them not to heed
such nonsense, It is merely tho
despairing shriek of a party
which realizes that its end has
come. The decision of the voters given on July Oth is irrevocable. There is no appeal from
it. The Government is us dead
as a door nail and nothing it or
its friends or supporters can do
can give it a lease of power. No
one unows this better than Mr.
Turner anil his colleagues and
anything they may be induced
by foolish advisers to do is bul
the action of drowning men
gi*aspiug at straws.
There lias been no change in I
It seems that the little trick of jtr
the Government in regard to tho I S~
Cassiar elections did not coraejSr
off as anticipated.   The return- j~
ing officer has reached Victoria |
and appears to have fixed the!
nominations  before   the   Gov't|
agent arrived.     The returning;
officer is the authority for tlie'
statement that there is not one
Government   candidate   in   the;
Held for Cassiar.   G.A.McTavish i
is a pronounced oppositionist aud
Capt. Irving and C. W. D. Clifford, who are the oilier two can-1
didtiies.  are  running  as Independent and have disavowed the
Governmenl.    This menus that
the Opposition  are  practically
certain of two Cassiar seats, thus
giving them 11 seats as against
lhe Government's lli.    The opposition will therefore face parliament with a strong working
majority.     We   must take this
opportunity  of   congratulating
the supporters of the Opposition
in this district on the splendid
victory that has been achieved
for the party, a success which,
in face of the difficulties of the
contest and the large majority
that had to be overcome, is al- *||.

Nelson Tribune: -Of tlio Indc-
pendents—Henderson, of Westminster city, and Neilson, of
northeast Kootenay—there is
every reason to believe that, they
will support Hie strongest party,
With respect to Henderson, it is
already stated that ho has ox-
| prince lu the train and from the
i latter to tho royal yacht Os-
'borne, and taking him ashore
again. A number of sailors have
been specially detailed to carry
the couch on board the yacht,
which will Immediately proceed
to (.'owes. Alterations have been
made in the deckhouse so as to
allow the prince's chair to pass
easily in or out and a special pavilion has been erected aft from
which His Boyal Highness will
witness the regatta. The Princess of Wales will remain on
board the yaclit. It appears
that when the Sultan of Turkey
telegraphed his condolence and
iuipiiries nl the lime of the accident lo the Prince ot Wales,
His Majesty offered a special
demonstration of his solicitude,
and to send the well-known Turkish surgeon Djeinal Pasha to
the pri nee.
