.Kit. BAILLIE TO THE ELECTORS
To the Opposition Electors of
South East Kootenay:
ifijJSTLBMBK—I desire to express to you the deep gratitude I
fool for the noble tight you havo
made in this district in the cause
of good government in British
Columbia, The tight went
against us, but by such a small
majority as to show that the
heart of the peoplo is opposed to
the disastrous administration of
the affairs of the Province that
has boen going on at Victoria
for so many years past. It will
be a great satisfaction to you to
know that the Government as a
whole has met its doom, and that
from this out a new order of
things will be established. It is
not unlikely that this constituency itself will be redeemed before many weeks. Tho irregu
Inrit'ies that tool; place during
tho election of" last Saturday are
so flagrant as to leave little
doubt that a now election will iu
fine course be ordered.
1 n the meantime, to the Central
Opposition' Committee at Port
Steele, and to their co-laborers
in other parts of the riding, my
hearty thanks are due and hereby tendered.
Yours sincerely.
Wm. Baillie,
james martin was elected
Opposition Candidate for Parliament,
Rossland Riding.
Rossland, B. C„ July 9,-The
election in this riding resulted
in the election of James Martin,
Oppositionist, by u majority of
.about 140 over John McKane,
.the independent Government
candidate. There were 520 votes
icast in this city. Martin received 329 votes and McKane
232. This gives Martin a clear
majority in Rossland precinct of
S)7. There was one spoiled ballot. The election was quiet.
Martin and his friends had a
brass band out tonight and had a
great celebration. It was thought
that Trail would surely give a
majority for John McKane, and
Colonel B. S. Topping telephoned to Rossland a short time
before the polls closed that his
precinct was certain to give tho
independent Government supporter a majority of Ilii or -10.
When the ballots wore counted,
however, it was found that Trail
had cast, Ml votes, and of this
number Martin had received 711
votes and McKane, thus giving
Martin a majority of live.
Returns from the Boundary
country are as follows: Grand
Porks—Martin, nt; McKane, 88;
Cascade City—Martin, HI; McKane, 7. This gives Martin a
total majority of 121, with Midway and Greenwood to hear
from,

Victoria, July SI.—Victoria returns all four Government can-
ididates,
The Government loses three
seats on the Island. Kanilloops,
previously a Government stronghold, has gone Opposition. The
latest returns indicate that the
Government is defeated and that
the Opposition havu a small majority.
Cranbrook.
Tho Canadian Bank of Commerce has established a branch
hero and will bo open for business iu the course oil a day or
two. The want ot a chartered
bank in. South East Kootonay
has been felt for some time, and
a bank at this point will be a
great convenience to business
men in Cranbrook and other
Bast Kootenay towns, %
The Canadian Bunk of Commerce confined its operations to
the provinces of Ontario and
Quebec until 1.803, when the
Winnipeg branch was established under the management of Mr,
P, H. Matheson. During the
present your lliroe new branches
of the bunk have beeu opened:
Dawson City, N. W. T.; Vancouver and Cranbrook, B. C. The
bank has the largest number of
branches of any bank in Canada.
Mr. A. Scott, of tlie Winnipeg
branch, is al present representing the bank' here.
IN SOUTH EAST KOOTENAY.
Tlie Government Oandidate Wins by
a Narrow Majority.
The election in this distriot j
was carried on with great vigor
on both sides, the organization
being about as perfect, as it could
be in a district whore the distances are so great and the population so scattering. Many
voters were out ih the mountains
at work in the mines, far distant
from a polling place, and consequently out oi the 441 names ou
the list of voters, only 1)08 were
recorded as having'voted.. This
was a greal disadvantage to the
Opposition side, which was
strongly supported by iho working classes. The following result shows how close a shave a
Cabinet Minister had of being
defeated in a Constituency whicli
he has represented for 12 years.
The prestige which his office
gave him he used for all it was
worth, and promises of benefits
of one kind and another were
made to the people of the various
sections of the district. Money
also was lavished on the election
and still only a narrow majority
of I 5 was obtained. A change
of 8 votes would have defeated
the Government here as it has
been in the majority of the ridings of the Province. Following
are the figures: '
MINING   NEWS,
Wild Horse and Perry Creek.
J. W. R. Young, manager of
tho Inviota Hydraulic Company,
operating on Wild Horse Creek,
has returned after spending six
months iu the Old Country.
Speaking generally of mining
matters, Mr, Young says there is
groat difficulty in engaging capital in London for new ventures
in this Province. This is not because of any lack of faith in the
mineral productiveness of British Columbia, but has been occasioned by disappointment with
the manner in which one or two
! liig concerns have been floated.
Mr. Young intends going on
with the work on the Invicta
preparatory lo the introduction
of a hydraulic elevator to work
the gravel on bed rock. A good
deal of tunnelling and sinking
will be necessary, which* will
probably occupy the whole of
the time till next spring.

souk; promising quartz properties on ferry Creek, [n a, few
days an expert will be ou tho

[his report should prove as favorable as it is confidently expected
to be, there will be ho time lost
in the interest of a large syndicate.
Alex. Dick, of Rossland, representing the British North
American Syndicate, was in Port
Steele during the early part of
the week. Mr. Dick has been
inspecting some mining property
in the vicinity of Sand Creek.

Columbia pioneer and keeper of
the Esquimalt lighthouse, wus
drowned last week while on his

his usual custom, went to Esquimalt and had" a few drinks with

NO HALF-WAY TERMS FOR
SURRENDER OF SANTIAGO
When That City -Hauls Down the
Spanish Flag it Will be According to the Desires of General
Shafter.
Washington, July 9. — ino
great battle expected today did
not take place, although the
armistice expired at noon wilh
the forces on both sides at Santiago lined up for battle. The
reason was that the Spanish
commander, who had been in
correspondence with his home
government by telegraph, was
seeking to make terms with General Shafter by which ho mighl
save his army from capture. He
was willing to give up Santiago
withoul resistance if allowed to
retreat with all his men and arms
across the island, hut this idea
was not entertained lor a moment by our government.
On the contrary, every effort
will be. put forth to sen 1 up all
avenues of escape from Santiago
and lo compel the Iinni surrender
of the Spanish army. To have
allowed them to make, their way
unmolested inlo lhe interior
would have amounted simply lo
reinforceinelif of the garrison of
Havana by these thousands of
trained soldiers who had proven
their courage as worthy lighting
men in the trenches, (In lhe
olher hiintl, lo compel llii'iii fo
surrender it is believed will produce an enormous moral effect,
bolli in Havana ami iu Spain Itself, ami tend lo lhe early eou-
c.lusian of tho war.
Secretary Alger and Adjutant
General Corbin were in quick
communication with General
Shafter at Santiago during the
day. These officials, hi .vever,
decline positively to give out for
publication any dispatches relating to the negotiations that
are going on between General
Shaffer and Genera! Linares or
to confirm any of the exciting
rumors that were liying through
the corridors all day. Nevertheless it was evident from their
manner that a crisis had been
reached so far as Santiago was
concerned, and lhat as matters
stood at the close of Ihe day
ihere was no reason 1,. be lis-
satisfied wdth the outlook, as it
is known that General Shafter
has lost nothing by the armistice, his men are rested, the commissary has improved, the roads
have been cleared and his artillery'is now almost completely
placed iu a mosl effective manner. None of those thines existed at the beginning of the
armistice. On the other hand,

SATURDAY, .IIII.Y 111. 18118.
A   WBW    DEAL   IN   PROGRESS.
British America Corporation b Still
After the 'Lo Roi.
Undaunted by its failure to
buy the Le Roi outright, the
British America Corporation is
now straining every endeavor to
•secure a majority of the stock in
;t.he company owniug the great
.mine. If successful in this, the
Mackintosh syndicate will be
content, and no effort will be
made to transfer the mine to the
B. A. C.
Hardly had the big English
company relinquished its hold
upon the property and received
back the check paid as an earnest, when it commenced operations to secure u majority of the
slock of the company, Senator
Turner, the great objector of the
Le Roi forces, who was seemingly iu control of the situatiou on
'Tuesday night when the deal fell
.through, was willing to permit
.the B. A. ,C. to secure a majority
interest in the property only on
one condition, and that was
that no effort be made to
freeze out the small shareholders of the company. The B. A.
CE might buy a majority interest
ifit were able, bat the Le Roi
Mining & Smelting Company
must remain intact, and no effort
should bo made to deed the mine
discussed this wide subject.    In
alluding in ihe greatness of ihe
Dominion, its almost illimitable
natural resources and extensive
area are not so much referred lo
as its early  history, ils conser-
•'
vate yet  progressive growth, its
different   nationalities and how
they are gradually  [using into
one great unit, the aims of its
early and some of the latest of
its distinguished legislators, the
moulding of a group of feeble
colonies, wasting their strength
in petty rivalries into a nation
conscious of a splendid destiny
and its great importance to the
empire,  through   fortifications
and coaling stations of the Atlantic and Pacific coasts coupled
with the Canadian Pacific Railway, by which it is able to dictate terms ou Asiatic questions,
and also to retain its supremacy
in   the   Western    hemisphere.
Canada is spoken of as the first
of the Britons over the sett to
put her defenses on  a  sound
basis, and to organize an effective militia, and the latest step in
the onward march of progress of
this daughter of the Empire is
the ideal postal privilege she has
given to all Her Majesty's subjects without distinction.    The
intrigues of the United States in
trying to capture her most western Province is minutely dealt
with, and the writer attributes
to Sir John A. Macdonald the
praise for far-seeing statesmanship which thwarted those plans
aud thus gave Canada a beach on
the Pacific as well as upon the
| Atlantic.    The great  possibili-
I ties  of   British   Columbia are
shown   und  Vancouver   is   described as the coming Liverpool
of the Dominion.    Turning to
the question of  loyalty   to the
mother  hind,   lhe  writer  says
Hull although the various nation
^Thes^were^heTerms  that |alities composing the Dominion sioual governol. of"the Ladrom
ble moment, and although he did
nol go into details as to its purpose, il is well understood thai
it will devote iis attention to the
Spanish coast and shipping.
The destruction of the Spanish
lleet al Santiago relieves Sampson from surveillance of this
squadron, and he cun readily
spare lhe squadron ships intended for the attack on the Spanish
uoast.
Germany Getting Gay.
The Hong Kong correspondent
of the London Daily Mail says:
The triumphal entrance of the
reinforcing squadron into Manila
harbor was marred by an unpleasant incident, for which the
Germans were responsible. As
the ships cume up the bay, they
were closely followed by the
German warship Kaiserin Augusta, which had been cruising
about Marivelee for some time.
The impression given everyone
who watched her was that she
was not only making a close ob
servation of the American forces,
but endeavoring to show both
the Americans and Spanish that
she represented a nation which
must be reckoned in with the
present crisis. The feeling
among both the Americans and
English in the bay is that Germany's attitude, as shown by
these movements, is highly
reprehensible and anything but
respectful to the United States.
The annexation of the La-
drones was marked by a ludicrous incident. The Charleston
entered the harbor of Guahan
and fired seven guns at the forts.
The governor, thinking that this
was a salute, sent word that he
regretted his inability to return
it, as he was without powder.
When informed he was a prisoner of war, he indignantly protested, saying that he had no
idea that war had broken out.

faces are striated.     They have a
lerfeci basal cleavage, which is
it prominent feature of the minerul. The luck of any appreciable quantity of silver in the
Cripple Creek ores, us shown by
the returns of the smelters, is
shown that much, if not all, of
the mineral passing as sylvanite
is either krennerite or its subspecies, calaverite, Krennerite
ranges from silver-white to brass
yellow in color, and is so near
sylvanite in its physical properties that frequently the eye cannot distinguish one from the
other.

OI'K  STOCK
Senator  Turner  offered.     The
terms were accepted by tbe British America Corporation, and arrangements are now under way
for  the sale'to the Mackintosh
Company of a majority of tlie
stock of the Le Roi by the individual holders of it.   As has frequently    been   published,   the
greater par1 of the stock is held
in the ho. clad pool, of which
Senator Turner, Colonel Turner
.and Colonel Peyton are trustees,
but all members of the pool who
desire to sell their holdings to
the B. A. C. are al liberty to do
.so on any terms they may agree
to.    As Hon. C. H. Mackintosh,
the   managing director of  the
B. A. C, already holds ajrroe-
ments with members of the pool
for the purchase of some 200,000
shares of the stock at the basis
of ».(i per share, it is safe to say
that this is the figure at wliich
lhe bulk of the sale will be made.
Mr. Mackintosh and the most
of lhe Le  Roi officials  left yesterday morning for Spokane, but
Mr. Mackintosh's stay there was
just long enough to permit of
his taking lhe train to Vancouver,  whither he went on business.    In an interview yesterday
morning, Mr. Mackintosh said:
"While the deal  for the purchase of the mine as u whole is
oil', we shall,  nevertheless,  secure a controlling interest in the
.stock of the company, for the
British America Corporation has
determined lo possess the property,  but the  interests of  the
minority    will   be   fully     protected."
Senator Turner announced his
satisfaction at the turn events
bad taken. "I would be glad to
have lhe H. A. C. in the control
of the properly," he said, "for
ilul, company would place lhe
mine on ils feel, and give il the
valuation which it, will never receive us long as the [action now
in power remains in charge of
Ibe propeily."   Rossland Miner.

article ou the Gretilness of Canada,   by   Augescat.      it deals
differ on every otlier question
Canada in her imperialism speaks
and acts as one man—Liberal
and Conservative, French-Canadian, Anglo-Saxon and Celt, all
combining against anything that
would have a tendency to dismember the Empire. In international treaties her rights have
not always been respected, yet
she bus not been so selfish as to
think only of her own welfare,
but that of Britain as a whole.
The different little wars and tin-
NOTE ANU COMMENT.
The French papers are busily
collecting instances of what they
consider American unfriendliness toward France, in order to
bolster up their campaign of
hostility against the United
States. The Figaro recently published George Bancroft's letter
of congratulation to Bismarck' on
the result of the Franco-Prussian war, and follows it up with
several otlier incidents of a like
nature, among which is General
Grant's telegram of congratulation to the Emperor of Germany
in 1870, and the fact that Victor
Hugo refused to receive him on
account of it during his visit to
Paris several years later
Writing of the perils of naval
warfare, Park Benjamin, in the
International, says: As for the
admiral, there is nowadays no
rigging for him to ascend, and
he would be promptly blown oat
of it if there were. In fact, after
a fleet engagement has begun
there is no place for him al all.
He has no business in the conning tower, no business at the
guns. He cannot very consist
ent l.v go below, and he cannot
stay on deck. It has been proposed to build a separate armored tower for him. or to take him
off the llagship und put him on a
small, swift vessel, so that he
could choose his position and
Iconveniently give his orders by
Isignals.   The difficulty wilh thai

borders have been factors in retarding her progress, but she
has surmounted all difficulties.
Her treatment of the aborginees
of tlie country is shown to have
been in marked contrast with
the nation south of us. The latter has treated the Indians as
children with duties but no
rights, but Canada has acted
towards them as responsible
human beings. The author in
conclusion, speaking as an
American, says: "Next to being born north of the silver
streak, one would desire to be
born west of the silver streak- in
the Dominion of Canada." These
be brave words und wc are glad
for Ihem.

Justifiable Suicide.
"Vou knew the deceased, I believe you said'*'" asked the coroner of the witness.
"Yes, sir. Our desks stood
side by side for six years.''
"Had you ever heard him intimate a wish to die or declare
that life was insupportable?"
"No, Sir."
"Can you suggest any reason
for his suicide?"
"I can only suggest what may
