AT IT AGAIN.
How Ool. Baker Stand»-Fort Steole
vi. Cranbrook -Government Booming of a Townsite.
We leam to-day from a source
that is reliable that the Hon. Col.
[' Baker is again, as a member of
the present government, assuming the prerogative of making
and unmaking towns and offices,
wholly regardlessof vested rights
or the interests or wishes of the
people.
It was about one year ago
when The Peospectou in an
article under the title of "Government Booming of Townsites
|4iii East Kootenay ".called the
attention of the general public to
the announcement that the Gold
Commissioner was to be located
at Cranbrook, and further, on the
authority of the member, it was
given out that Cranbrook was to
be made the Governmental Headquarters of East Kootenay. The
Col. stated at that time "That
tho Government offices would not
be removed from Port Steele
until such times as circumstances
justified such a move.
It is useless for him to deny
that such a move* was contemplated or that it is not now. the
intention of Col. Baker and his
Government to attempt such a
removal contingent upon certain
facts and time.
We learn to-day that it i.s the
intention of Cul. linker to remove
the present recorder at Port
Steele to Cranbrook. This will
not he done for prudential reas-.
ons until after the election. We
also learn that another employee
at the Government office, has already made an application for
tho recoi'dership at Port Steelo.
Port Steole is a central point
and, as the principal town in
East Kootonay. has been for
thirty years the residence of
whatever Government officials
there woro in the country. But
it seems thai, it is not consistant
with the policy of the Hon. Col,
James Bnker, that such a
state of things should
continue, when tliere is a possibility of corn coming to tho mill.
There, is no possible reason lo
doubt, even al this time, that
Col. Baker would, if ho could,
transfer the Government build
ings, officios and officials lo his
"beautiful townsite" of Cran
bn ii iK*.
Col. Bakor at Fart Steole.
W'e have il. on good authority
that one of llio I'ealuros of the
arrangement between Col. Uaker
and the C. P. li. was thai the
Provincial (loverninenl should
assist the booming of the town-
site of Cranbrook by tlie removal
of the Government offices from
Port Stoele to that point. The
gallant Colonel himself confirmed
this assertion in a recent conversation with a friend. The statement has been sworn to in the
form of an affidavit and can be
produced should the Colonel deny
i| it. Is it any wonder that Port
Steelo should give a block vote
against the man who, while tho
representative of the District
has endeavored to damage the
townsite of Port Steele, and who
if returnod would be in a position fo reward his faithful followers at Port Steele by using
his position and inllnence to
build up Cranbrook at the expense of the original lownsilo.
The defeat of Col. Bakor for tho
South Riding of East Kootonay
is regarded as a certainty,—Golden Era.
In relation to the above article
we learn that tho party who
made the affidavit referred to
was to be rewarded by a Gover-
ment position, if he supported
the Government candidate, We
learn that the affidavit is placed
in escrow and can be produced,
A Fort Steele man has possession of it.
At his house in Victoria, ex-
Governor Dewdney, then Governor of the Province, stated in tha
presence of Mr.Joseph Bamford,
Sr., and two other men, one of
whom is located in the district,
that if was a settled fact that the
Government offices at Fort Steele
would be removed to Cranbrook.
At Wasa Governor Dewdney
told an elector of this district,
during a conversation as to the
future of towns in this district,
that it was a settled fact that the
Government offices at Fort
Steele would be removed to
Cranbrook.
The above facts can be sub
stantiatad by an affidavit, and
the parties produced. In fact
one of tho gentleman has made
the statement to Col. Baker within ten days.
In the face of these statements,
which can be fully substantiated,
can any resident of Steele or any
part of the District, support Col.
Baker, who has ever since he became a representative of the
Government, been working and
scheming in the interest of his
town "Beautiful Cranbrook,"
Standiiig-iii with the Government, with tho C. P, R.| using
his influence as an officer of the
B. C, Southern Raihvay, compelling the C. P. R. to make
Cranbrook a divisional point,
even when there was but one
house on his ranch called "Beau-
ful Cranbrook", he dictated and
compelled them them "the C.P.-
R." to do as he wished. In every
move, every improvement made
in the district, the fine Italian
hand of the Colonel is seen, always in the interests of "Beautiful Cranbrook." 'Old Timers in
the district know these to be
facts and place no reliance in denials made by the Colonel.
At a meeting of representative
citizens at Port Steole last year,
theColonel stated theGovernment
would uot iu the future make any
appropriations for public hospitals. This was in reference to a
request for aid to the Port Steele
hospital. We see in a report of
the proceedings in the House,
on the last day of the session,
that $300 was appro) irial ed for
a hospital at Fairfax. This fact
would indicate lhat the Colonel's
statement wns wrong, or Unit he
did not intonil Porl Steele
should got any assistance from
the Government iu aid of its hospital.
The Socret Ballot.
The Government has lost its
most powerful friend. The ballot is now secret—absolutely so.
It is impossible to trace any vote
thai may bo cast in the coming
election. The system of terrorizing and bull-dozing at election
times has come lo an end.
Voters should bear carefully in
mind that they can get only one
ballot paper, and if thoy spoil it
they lose their vote. Thoy
should also remember ihal. any
mark, however small, on any
part of the ballot I paper, except
lho. M in lhi! circular while space
opposite tho name of lho candl
date thoy wish to voto for, spoils
the ballot.
BAKER
MUST 60.
Vote for Wm. Baillie
the Opposition Candi-
eate—A Vote for Him
is a Vote for Fair
Play to Fort Steele
and Honest Government.
For their own interests the
toilers of this country must stick
together and work for the opposition cause and the opposition
candidates.
All sorts of schemes will be tried
to split the vote ; lies will be invented and told; wild rumors
will be circulated and appeals
will be made to predudice and
passion. If the workingmen are
sincere iu their desire to see this
province honestly and economically governed, and the Prospector believes they, are, they
will turn a deaf ear to these
stories that will come trooping
in at the eleventh hour, and vote
the opposition ticket.

Celebration of Dominion Day and the
Fourth of July.-Fully a Thousand People Witnessed the Two
Days' Sport.
The celebration of the National Days, Dominion Day and the
Fourth of July, has coaie and
gone, and where is the man,
woman or child, within Port
Steele's fold, who failed to celebrate the national holidays. The
town was ablaze with excitement,
nil united as ono man to do honor to the days. The decorations
were artistic and formed a prelly
effect, the British ensign and the
Stars and Stripes, blended in
every imaginable shape, gaveevi-
dence of the true feeling now
existing between the two countries, now only divided by an
imaginary line. Tho executive
committee in charge of tlie sports
consisted of Messrs. Ross, Norbury, Edwards and Carlin. Race
Committee, Messrs. McNeish,
Barnes and Watson, Committee
of other events, Messrs. Elton,
Doble and Beale. The several
committees in Charge did everything possible for the success of
the days. A large number of
ladies were in attendance and
seemed to greatly enjoy the athletic sports and races, with true
sportsmanlike appreciation.
At night on the Ist Ihere wns
a dance given in llio Opera House
by the Fort Steele Brass Baud,
whore the young people tripped
the light fantastic until the wee
sum' hours. The Brass Band
at inlei'vals during (he two days

which was highly appreciated by
the peoplo in attendance.

TO-DAY'S ELECTIONS.
The Government is Certain to Sustain
a Crushing Defeat.
Information to hand by this
week's mail from the outsid
shows that our forecast of the
Elections that take place all over
the Province today i.s as nearly
correct as possible. The chances
for two Oppositionists in Victoria
City have improved, and we
shall mil be surprised to see that
result 't, hieved. Following is
what Wi* expect as tie result of
todays elections:
FOUGHT TO DEATH
Cevera's Forces Displayed Magnificent Courage.
Ten Miles West of the Entrance of the Harbor Santiago
de Cuba, Sunday. July 8, 4 p.m.,
by the Associated Press Dispatch
Boat Wanda, to Port Antonio,
Jamaica, Monday Morning, July
4, via Kingston, July 4, 4:45
a.m.—Admiral Cevera's fleet consisting of the armored cruisers
Cristobal Colon, Almiranto Oqu-
endo, Infanta Maria Teresa and
Viscaya and two torpedo boat
destroyers, Furor and Pluton,
which had been held in the harbor of Santiago de Cuba for six
weeks past by the combined
squadrons of Rear-Admiral Samson Commodore Schley, lies today at the bottom of the Caribean
sea off the southern coast of
Cuba.
The Spanish Admiral is a prisoner of war on board of the auxiliary cruiser Gloucester (formerly Mr. J. Piorpont Morgan's
yatch Corsair,) 1000 to 1300other
Spanish soldiers and sailors, all
who escaped the frightful carnage caused by the shells from
the American warships, are also
held as prisoners by the United
States navy.
The American victory is complete, and according to the best
information available at this
time, the American vessels were
practically untouched, and only
made by the Colon before their
captains ran them ashore. Their
crews fought with desperate
bravery, but their courage was
no match for lhe courage of our
men added to their superior gunnery. The Spanish shells wont
wide for the most part, but the
American gun tire was marked by
merciless precision. The two
cruisers, both on tire, were beached not more than ono quarter of
a mile apart.
THURSDAY  NIGHT'S  MEETING.
There was a largo attendance
at the political meeting in the
Opera House in this city on
Thursday evening last. Col.
Baker, as on the occasion of hii
previous meeting, had scoured
the whole district to secure
enough following to give him an
apparent standing in jfe rl Steele,
They came principally from
Cranbrook, some were from
Wardner and other places,
Yet it was a sorry showing.
Two-thirds, at least, of the
voters wore strongly opposed to
him,—a fuel that was made
clearly manifest as tho proceedings went forward.
Tho speech delivered by Baker
was the most paltry and contemptible ever heard on a political platform. In the face of
certain defeat, and under grinding  torments al   Ihe prospect

SATURDAY, JULY 0, 181)8,
THE   LATEST   WAR   NEWS.
On the Present Battlefield.
A oivil engineer of Chicago,
who has spent niauy years in the
vicinity ot Santiago, gives the
following description ot the battle, ground of General Shafter's
troops:
"Aftor passing Guasama tho
rond ascends through a winding
canyon to the plateau on wliich
Sevilla, whoro the Spaniards aro
making a stand, is situated. The
ascent by tlie road is not too precipitous, but on both sides the
walls aro of considerable height
and those passing ,lirough this
canyon would be under the direct tiro of  soldiers along the
I-,. ,, I,,       .    Province,        consented  lo  be
inuil  11 nun. ihey could turn to ,. , , ,.
ti   candidate ul  Hu*  <i|i|iosilion
Convention held in  the Opera
House nl Porl Sleele on June
2nd, and was there selected as
the Opposition Candidate in this
lhe right, moving along the bottoms of the Sau Juan river to
the norlli of Santiago, or they
could skirt the lowland and get
into position on the foothills
north of Santiago, wliich are almost within rifle shot of the
city.
"The Spanish army, as it now
exists in Santiago, will probably
havo to depend on itself. There
is talk of its being reinforced by
a large body of troops from Hoi-
«uin undor General Pando. This
seems almost an impossibility.
By the nearest road which the
troops could march, and they
must follow the road for the
country is heavily timbered, it is
at least 180 miles from Holguin
to Santiago. This country is devoid of water, and there is abso-
districl.
I therefore tuke this method of
briefly stating the grounds on
which I oppose llie present, Government, and the public policy
which 1 think ought to be pursued ill this Province.
Monopoly of the Land.
(1). During a period of years
past the Government has been
guilty of parcelling out to monopolies huge sections of the public- lands. In this district alone
live-sixths of Uie available agricultural land has been given
away as subsidies to two projects.
The lirst of these is the Canal
that was lo conned the Columbia
and Kootenay Rivers at Canal
Plat, as crazy a scheme as was
ever hatched outside of a lunatic
asylum.   But still the Govern
lutely   nothing upon whicli an|mentgave jts promoters 30,000
The Government of which he
irmy could subsist.   A column i acres of the host lands in the iis a member gave him all Up,
of the < loverninenl in defence of
the Chinese, said recently in the
Legislature:
"I have had men from Ontario
on  my  ranch,  and  1 ao\ Ihem
very cheap, but the besl   iiinn   I

iLIMlTED   LIABILITY,

Crow's Nest Coal Lands Deal,
There nre 114 square miles of
coal lands in the Crow's Xest
country. According to Prof.
Selwyn's official report to the
Dominion Government, each following lines of Goods,
square mile of this land contains j
49,052,000 tons  of coal.    This
wealth  is   incalculable.    Every: ci   pl    i      n

And a complete stock of
