IMPROVE   THB   KOOTENAY.
Government Engineer Arrived to
Look Over the River and Give
Estimates on Improvements-
Will Oommenoe Work in October.
Mr. J. R, Roy, Dominion Engineer, arrived at Fort Steele on
Sunday last. Mr. Roy's mission
js to examine the Kootenay River
as to its improvement and report
••the result of his investigation to
the Dominion Government, At
the last Session of the Dominion
Parliament, through the energetic efforts of our member, Mr.
Bostock, §5,000 was appropriated tor the improvement of the
river between Fort Steele and
the International boundary.
The residents of Fort Steele,
mine owners and miners all over
the district have foi' years been
asking the Government to improve the Kootenuy River: tlie
necessities and possibilities of
the district as to the future have
■been represented in a just and
■forcible manner. It was shown
that a small amount of money
expended would be'of Immense
'benefit to this district and would
insure at least eight months of
navigation on the river; that
there was only five gravel bars
that obstructed navigation to
such an extent that steamboats
could not ascend the river at a
low stage of water. The attention of the department was call-
fid to the fact that a large
.amount of ore, some 3,000 tons,
was in course of transit, and
with the river improved a much
larger amount could and would
be shipped, and the arrival of
Mv, Roy tends to show that tho
Government; through the direct
efforts of Mr. Bostock, has real-
faed that the river is an import-
•■ant means of transportation to
this district,
As a means of transportation a
water route is at times much to
be preferred to railway facilities,
and the near approach of the
Crow's Nest Railway may seem
to some as affording sufficient
means of transportation, but this
is not so. The river can be
made available for the transportation of ore to the railway
from points along the river that
the railway does not come iu direct connection with. It will
take a few years to gird the district with a railway system that
will afford the necessary means
of transportation to the ores
mined in tho district, and in the
meantime tho river affords a di
rect and quick moans of trans
portation. In fact, the steamboats will become feeders to the
railway, thus euabling the mine
owners prompt and efficient
transportation at this time, and
in the future will be a source of
competition, thus affording cheap
.rates to the district.
A large number of the citiaens
of Fort Steele and mine owners
from all over the district waited
on Mr. Roy and impressed on
that gentleman that the district
lit large wanted the river im
proved; that it was necessary to
tho future wolf-are of the district
that the improvements should
.commence as soon us possible,
Mr. Roy statod that he was here
to examine and report as to tho
cost and what was needed to improve the river, and that as soon
as the stage of the water would
permit work would be commenced, possibly In October;
that a small amount had been
appropriated this year, and that
}t would  bo expended  on  the
places in tlie river where it wns
found most ueeded.
, Mr. Croaitsdale, representing
the Hall Smelter Co., suggested
that as a small amount of money
had heen appropriated it should
be localized as much as possible
so as to make the river a natural
feeder to the railway.
Mr. T, G, Procter, a prominent mine owner in the district,
stated that in all probability
there would be a very large output of mineral in the near future,
as there were strong developments going on,
Mr. John Fink said that the
improvement was a direct necessity to the whole district, and
would bo the means of a large
saving to the people. It was a
popular and important movement.
A number of other business
men coincided with these gentlemen, saying that it effected the
whoie district, enabling mine
owners along the rivor front direct means of transportation,
thus bringing the mines in touch
with tho railway.
Mining Notes,
The North Star company are
doing the assessment work on 21
claims in the vicinity of the
North Star.
We learn thai it is the intention of the North Star company
to sink a shaft 800 . feet on the
property. They are still sink
ing on the workings near the
Midnight line, having a well*
defined lead.
R, O. Jennings has just re*
turned from the Deane mine.
Mr. Jennings reports that he has
a good showing of ore on this
property.
The tunnel of the Gold Bug
Fraction has a tunnel in 50 feet
with a good showing of carbonates.
The assessment work has been
performed on the Silver Bug
claim.
A tunnel wilt be run 100 feet
on the Big Chief mineral claim.
A small force of men are at

R. O. Jennings brought in a
beautiful specimen of ore from
tho Deane mine. It contains
grey copper and brittle silver.
A force of men are at work on
the Lone Star and Equator
claims, on Wild Horse Creek. It

Perry Creek Mines.
Tlie mines in the vicinity of A continual
Perry creek are all right. Provincial Mineralogist Robinson
has spent some time in looking
over the properties on the creek,
and reports that thore is a lino
showing of gold quart?,. That
the ledges are true fissures, and
run in a straight line for a distance of over eleven miles, The
Badger and Red Mountain claims
have a line showing of ore,
the Shakespere, New York Jewelry Shop and Loudon Treasury
Box have also a great showing
of mineral. It is tho opinion of
practical ni'mining men that have
visited Perry creek during tho
past month, that with increased
development Perry Creek will
make a great free gold camp,
Boyer Group of. Mines,
The Boyer group of mines,
consisting of live claims, are situated on bull River, on the western slope of tho Rocky M.ouii
tains. There is a large and extensive mineral /.one that extends

carrying gold, silver and copper,
Some §800 have been expended
this year, and the owners intend
to sink a shaft at least 100 feet
during the season. Considerable
grey copper and Bromides are
found. It is the intention of the
owners to push' development
work and ascertain beyond a
doubt whether they have a mine
that is a paying proposition or not
as soon as possible.

SATURDAY, AUGUST ll, 18118.
I   NOTES  OF THE LATEST NEWS.
i By Wire and Post From all Parts of
the World.
The London morning papers
agree that it will be impossible
for Spain to pay an indemnity
and that it is impossible that the
United States will demand money
■compensation. They all concede
that the Spanish Hag has gone
forever from Cuba and Porto
Rico.
'The Madrid correspondent to
the London Daily Mail says that
the protracted negotiations initiated by Germany is that the
powers have arrived at a formal
agreement to oppose American
annexation of the Philippines,
| which must remain Spanish,
Major Langiitt of San Fran-
I oiseo, who is to go to Honolulu
E ■with a battalion of volunteer en-
j gineers, received instructions
; from General Merriam to cause
I a preliminary survey to be made
of the harbor of Honolulu, as the
initiative of fortification plans.
A London special from Shang
i hai says that four Russian men
of-war left Port Arthur and it is
'  supposed their destination is the
Philippine islands.
Admiral Canctiaui, it is announced in a dispatch from Car
thagenti, Colombia, formally de
j manded on Saturday that the
Colombia government accept
President Cleveland's award in
the Cerruti case in its entirety
and   guarantee  its  full execu-
/ tion.
Troy Times: A Frenchman applied to a local official for
passport to visit Klatterwiug-
•schen, in Switzerland. The
functionary, who was not a fel-
,*■ .lew of any geographical society,
•struggled in vain with the spelling of the place's name. Then,
unwilling to confess his diffi-
•culty, he blandly ashed: "Would
you as lief visit some other
town?"	
IN VIOLATION  OF TEEATY.
Spain  Plants   Guns   in   Bangs   of
Gibraltar.
London, July 28.—The Gibraltar correspondent of. t!*0 Daily
News says:
A curious exchange uf civil!
ties has passed between Ureal
Britain and Spain, (...
The Spanish consul here,, .'aider instructions from Madrid,
called on Sir Robert Biddiilpli,
governor and commander-in-
chief at Gibraltar, expressing
concern lest the Americans
should lind "facilities" at Gibraltar.
The governor replied that the
Spanish government might rest
quite easy, for if Commodore
Watson came the authorities
■would act strictly according In
the queen's proclamation, copies
of which, he said, he had just
been distributing to all the chief
officials of the garrison.
Spain, lor lhe last fortnight,
has been making extensive preparations iu Gibraltar bay.
Twenty gnus have just been
•shipped to Centa and 10 havo
been mounted around the bay.
•There are 11,000 men in Algeria
and 1,000 engineers are daily
working at the batteries and
fortified trenches behind the
cemetery at Lina, a mile south
.of the British lines.
A couple of guns have beon
dragged up behind the Queen of
.Spain's Chair, commanding the
north front of these works.
Even if intended for the Americans, they might become not a
danger but au eventual annoyance to Gibraltar, and at any
t'iite they are au infringement of
the treaty cession stipulating
that no guns should be placed
within range of tlie Rock.
Sir Robert Biddulph is reporting the inatter to the home government and strong representations are being made at Madrid,

SOLE   AGENT.
Spanish Prisoners Paid.
Portsmouth, N. EL, July 28,—
The Spanish prisoners contined
at Seavy's island were paid off
by the Spanish government today, the money being received
from Admiral Cervera, at Annapolis, the men receiving from
%H- to $1.0 in American currency.
Manila Surrenders to Americans.
London, July 29.—A Madrid
telegram to the New York Herald
says that the government has received a telegram announcing
the surrender of Manila to Admiral Dewey.
Madrid has been singularly
truthful in announcing defeat of
Spanish arms at Manila, hence
the above dispateh has all the
ear-marks of truth.
It indicates that the second ex
pedition of American volunteers
from San Francisco for the Phil
ippines must have landed and
that nearly 7,000 troops of the
United States are in the city to
preserve order. According to
the calculations of the govern
ment that expedition has had
ample time to reach Dewey.
Major General Merrill, in such
case, will assume charge of the
city and will be governor general,
American Plans.
The purpose of the administration is to accomplish everything
on this side of tlie Atlantic,
which it had hoped to accomplish before fall, to complete the
occupation of Porto Rico, to
clean up the work in eastern
Cuba, and then if Spain fails to
ask for terms to send Watson's
fleet over to strike from her
hands her only remaining weapon, the lleet under Admiral Camara
When the time comes for this
decisive stroke It is thought that
the European powers, which
have just been assured that Wat-
sou will not be instructed to
bombard Spanish cities, may
step in and convince Spain that
her honor does not require a further continuation of the light,
Should Watson cross the Atlantic and drive Carnal-it's Hoot,
into a Spanish port, it might be
found that the Americans would
have to repeat on Spanish soil
the tactics of the Santiago campaign; and that iu destroying the
enemy's ships they would be
forced to bombard fortifications.
land troops and take possession
of a city. Anything of this kind
would be sure to alarm the European powers which are interested iu preserving the integrity
of the Spanish peninsula, and
they might be depended on to
use.all their influence with the
government at Madrid to render
such a demonstration superfluous.
Emperor William's Message.
Washington, July 28. — Emperor William has sent a message to President McKinley.
which is exceedingly gratifying
in tone. It was communicated to
the president,,just before the
cabinet meeting by the German
ambassador. The exact nature
of the communication cannot be
learned. It is guarded with exceptional care, aud great precautions " have been taken to
prevenlOS>.„i'i an intimation of
the cha,.,v;/.isi' of the message escaping official circles,
From this it is believed that
the comtniinication may be the
forerunner of others from which
the administration expects important results, and that it is the
beginning of negotiations of a
weighty character. All that is
known now is that the message
was most friendly in tone and
that its receipt has given great
pleasure to the president and his
advisers.
Officially there has been no
correspondence between Washington and Berlin which has
been at all stiff and unfriendly.
So far as the conduct of the German ships in the Philippines is
concerned, it appears to be a
matter thus far purely between
Admiral Von Diedriche and Admiral Dewey. The government
at Washington has made no representations to the government
at Berlin with regard to the incident in Subig bay, and the wisdom of the restraint appears now
in the friendly approaches whicli
have just been made.
WATSON   TO   SAIL   IN   MIGHT.
His Squadron Will Be Enlarged to
A PoworfulJFleot.
Under tlie new arrangement
the eastern squadron, not yet
officially designated a lleet, will
consist of the protected cruiser
Newark, Goiuniodoru Watson's
flagship; the armored cruiser
Brooklyn, Commodore Schley's
flagship; the lirst class battleships Oregon, Massachusetts and
Indiana, the second class battleship Texas, the auxiliary cruis
ers Yale, Yosemite and Dixie,
probably the gunboat Princeton,
now undergoing some alterations
at the Washington navy yard,
and perhaps the protected cruiser
New Orleans.
It cannot be definitely ascor:
tained that the Yosemite and the
Dixie will remain as part of the
squadron, but in all probability
they will not be detached, although some fast auxiliaries are
desired for blockading purposes.
Every armored cruiser aud
battleship in the navy is to be
included in the squadron with
the exception of the New York,
Admiral Sampson's flagship, and
the Iowa, Captain Robley D.
Evans. The Iowa is badly in
need ol an overhauling and will
probably be brought to the
United Statos to be dry docked.
It is rumored that the Iowa
suffered greater damage than
was supposed at the time from a
Spanish shell, which struck her
during one of the bombardments
ut' the Santiago forts.
Another interesting that has
come out is the fact that the
naval authorities are considering
the advisability of assigning
Commodore Schley to the command of the Second division of
the formation. It is probable
that the decision will be affirmative. Such action will put an
end to all the talk- that the administration does not want to
give Schley a fair chance to distinguish himself, tts the work
mapped out for the eastern
squadron to perform is the most
important that will be undertaken by the government in a
naval way during the war.

At the present time the all-im

[A. B. Grace, Editor Thr Pkos-

of July 30 an item to the. effect
that I. had been appointed stipendiary magistrate and gold
commissioner at.,Cranbrook. I
would feel highly honored to accept the appointment were I in a
position to do so, but the company in whose employ I now am,
appreciating my efforts to advance their interests at all limes,
have (strange to say) increased
my salary, and at the urgent
solicitation of the management
of tlie company J. have decided to
remain with them for lhe present. While I. feel that the motive that prompted Tiik Pros.

wns nothing but friendly, I must,
in justice to myself and friends,
contradict the statement. Some
of my acquaintances in Fort

would bo rewarded by a Government position foi' the part L took
in the recent election. This El
consider very unkind as well, as

Cittiitilii .should have a mint.
As a country it has outgrown the
stage of short pants, and nothing
will give it a better standing
than the coining of its own
money. 	
New Denver Ledge: During
the past month we have found
out by carefully reading the
papers that this Province was
full of pirates, thieves, sand-
baggers, rotiil agents, horse
thieves and liars. Most of them
were running for the legislature,
and their desperate character
was not known until the campaign commenced.
Great Britain will .shortly be
iu a position to hold the seas
against lho combined Heels of
Germany. Franco and Russia.
She will then lie in no need of
an alliance with America. Britain's neglect oi her navy between
1.880 and 181)0 is responsible for
the contemptuous (real nient
which the powers have been giving her, In that period she built,
only 18 battleships and 12 cruisers, against 12 battleships and
10 cruisers built by Russia, Germany and Prance. In the present decade, however, she is
making rapid strides towards
supremacy. Her programme for
1890-lflOO includes 32 battleships
and 27 cruisers. Britain is also
building many torpedo-boat destroyers,

Port of Police, Porto Rico,
July 2!).-— Without sooingor hearing anything of the enemy the
advance guard of General Henry's division, which wits landed'
at Gininicit on Tuesday, arrived
here today taking en route tho
cities of Ytiitco, Tiillitboii'i Sahiuiii
Grande and Poiiiiolns, Attempts
by the Spaniards to blow up
bridges and. otherwise destroy
the railroad between Yauco and
Ponce failed, only a few llatcars
being burned. Our troops have
fixed up the locomotives and are
now operating them from end to
end, carrying supplies and men.
At Yauce the Americans were
welcomed in an address made by
the alcalde and public proclamations issued dated "Yauco, Porto
Rico, United Stales of America,
July 27."
Major Webb Hayes, of the
Sixth Ohio, son of former President Hayes, hauled up the Hag
on the palace amid cheers from
the populace. The people seemed really glad that the A mericans
were here, but they fear an
uprising of the natives in the interior, who, it is asserted, will
raid, kill and destroy properly
in revenge for many years of
Spanish misrule.
Wero Totally Unprepared.
The Spaniards left here entirely without artillery, which makes
it even more obvious that, an attack at this poiut was uot dreamed of by ihem. Not n gun was
mounted. Tho garrison was
small and poorly armed. All the
guns with one exception that
were abandoned in lhe arsenel
When they beat their hasty retreat Wednesday night were
Remingtons and Mausers. There
was not a mine in the harbor of
Ponce, although two ancient
affairs covered with barnacles
were found at Porto de Gnanicu.
These had. been placed there
years ago and resisted every
effort to explode them. It is
evident from the wholesale desertion on the pari of the Spanish volunteers that Captain Ma*
citts must depend as a last resort
upon the regulars.
These do not number over
8,1)00 in the whole islund, nml
everything thus far indicates an
easy cbnipiest.

The evidence on this polnl is
clear and of satisfactory order,
und conclusively proves that the
sailing ship under the circumstances did keep her course and

of the opinion that her master

regulations unless lie could havo
sheltered himself under the conditions pointed out in article L'L
"All the necessary duties wero

O." Hor Course and Speeding When
She Struck.
Halifax, July 28—The decision
of tlie court of inquiry given here
today exonerates Captain Henderson and the officers of the
ship Cromartyshire from all
blame in the matter of the Bourgogne disaster.
The report was made by Captain Smith of the Brilisli Royal
navy reserve, with whom was
associated iu Ihe investigation
Captain Bloomtield Douglas and
Captain Lewis Anderson, nauti
cal assessor.
Captain Smith's report draws
special attention to the international regulations I'nr preventing
collisions at sen. which, lho report suys. precautions should
have been observed by these vessels.
The report says that nothing
can be absolutely and correctly
known us to the rate of speed of
the steamer, but from the sudden manner the steamer first
came in sight upon the port bow
of the sailing ship and her equally quick disappearance in the
fog Immediately after the casual
ty, as shown by the evidence,
the court, is forced to the conclusion that the steamer was proceeding at a high rule of speed.
Article 20 stales Unit when a
steam vessel and a sailing vessel
are proceeding in such directions
as to involve risk of collision,
the steam vessel shall keep mil
of the way of lhu sailing vessel.
For reasons unknown to the
court the I'ot'inei' did nol keep
clear of the sailing vessel,
Article 21 says:   "Where, by |
be in his hands. It is also believed that NE W, Parker, formerly of the Central Washington,
who nas gone to Fort Steele, has
gone there as Mr. Farrell's representative.

Mining Controversy Settled.
Gold Commissioner Armstrong
has rendered a decision in tho
arbitration case between tho
owners of tho Swan and St.
Lttwionce mineral claims, For
want of space we are unable to
publish the full report, but will
do so in oui' next issue, as there
are many points covered that
will be of interest to prospectors
and minors,
The decision was that the
allldavlt is sustained, as against
tho notices now appearing ou
the posts; that tbo allldavlf does
not contain the particulars as required by thn mil; that tho record
of the Midland i.s void; that tho
record of the St. Lawrence is
good; that the record of the St.
Lawrence has priority over the
Swan.
Elko.
The new townsite of East
Kootenay, is situated on the
main lino of the Crow's Nest
Railway and only about 12 miles
from the coal mines. The new
town boasts of having the finest
water power iu East Kootonay
and is situated on a high and
level plateau overlooking Elk
River, from which it takes its
name. Tliere are a largo number of mines in the vicinity of
the new town, We predict a
rapid and substantial growth for
Elko as soon as the Crow's Nest
Railway is completed.
