London, May 2.���������Details of the  battle olt Manilla have* been leceived  at the British Colonial' oflice. They  came in two cable messages received  yestciday evening, the-substance of  which has been furnished to tlie As*~o-  cit-ted. Press by the officials of the  Colonial ollice today.  The first table despatch announces  that the United Stales fleet enteied  Manilla harbor at day . break yesterday,' stationing itself apposite, the*  cily. The fort opened iiro on the  Ainericiu ships, whereupon they shitt-,  ed their position to one ue.ir Cavite, in  Manilla bay. engaging in a fieice fight  against both - forts and - the Spanish  fleet. ..The engagement lasted - two  liouis'iiiid resulted in the annihilation  of the Spanish fleet. The Aineiican  ships withdrew to a magazine vessel  *in the entry of theioaclstend for the  purpose, of coaling. One!

Thu cables an* interrupted at Manilla.  The Madrid coi respondent of the  Times describing the .engagement at  Manilla says : '-The " Olyni'ihia,' the  Boston,-the llaleigh, lhe Concord, the  Petrel and the Monocasy entered the  bay under tho cover of darkness by  .th-_suialli*i__and , safer- Bocachical  channel. The 1 oil's,' "of Cont'g\di<"i'  Island gave the alarm by firing m\ the  intruders, but they seem to have inflict cd iio serious damage. The American sqiiadron moved up the lia,y and  at '.1 u'clo'-k in the morning appeared  betore Oavite. Heie lying under . the  sheller of the forts was the Spanish  squadron. Admiral Mouti.jo ,\ few  elays before* went lo Subic Biy lo look  for the enemy, but learning tliat they  were vastly superior in force had  prudently relumi'd and placed his  ships under the prolection of th  forts. This was his only chance of  moel trig I he enemy on something like  equal terms anil it did not sufl'ice.  Soon the Americans opened lire. The  Spaniards iuniled vigoiously and the  coiubat continue;! without interrupt  lion for tour hoiir-i, dui'ing ivhicli lhe  Uoii_ Antonio Sulla was sunk, lbe  Ciiilillaaud Mindatioa were set on lire  nnd the lteina Maria Christinaaiid the  Don .1 mtn Do Austria were seriously  .lamngi'd. One or-two of the smaller  craft were scuttled by their crews to  oscnpi* capture, and the* others-took  I'clugc iu a small neighboring creek  emptying into Baker Bay where presumably lhe American ships were unable to follow them. But not one  surrendered.  THE ULTIStATUJl'.TO   SIAItll.I.A.  Commodore Dewey, accoiding to a  special dc-p.-tlcli, lrom Madrid,"gave  Captain General Augusta 21 hours to  comply wilh an ultimatum, whicli demanded all war-like stores, find tin*  entire stock of eo.il in charge of the  government oilicial. This ultimatum  asseited that no money levy would be  made upon Manilla. The* despatch  says that it is believed in Madrid that  tin* giiv(������rnmc>nt has already cabled  Captain General Augusta authority to  comply with the dc-maiul. no either'  course being open. Grave events, may  follow public knowledge of this loui-  pliur.ic*.  According to a despatch fiom Cadiz  to the Daily Chronicle it is believed  tliere that, orders have been given for  siTfleet of five vessels to start for Cuba  on May loth.

WEDNESDAY.  MAY    I,  isns.  Whon the Laurier Government  was so ready to abolish tin*- |jriu-  eiple.s of the Liberal put'tyjl'or the  benefit of William McKenzie and  Daniel Mann, says tho Toronto  Telegram, why s~huiiltl che country  hesitate to abolish the Senate for  the benefit of the sacue illustrious  individuals ?  Au anti-expectorating ordinance  has been passed _~cSpokane, Washington, and is being enl'oicecl, -100  notices having, been "posted  solemnly warning the Spokanites  to do their spitting in the gutter  nnd not make cuspidors of the  sidewalks or-public places. The  average American will soou begin  to think ch-it he is not living in a  - free country.  President  McKinley    and  Cabinet are   being seriously  assed   in'cbe conduct   of the  hy the New York yellow  publishing   state secrets,  his  hiir-  IVIll'  journal-*  uch  as  inl'ormatioh about the movements  uf the fleet, and the ([ue.-tion of a  press censorship is being proposed.  Meanwhile Harper's Weekly suggests that the New York World  should be placed in charge of an  intelligent corporal.  The United States will probably,  take Morro Castle in the near  future. "To Morro'.'" will come  soon enough.  What with Yellow Jack and  Yellow Journalism the United  States will have a hot time of it  in Cuba tliis summer.  TOOTHBRUSH AIDS HEALTH.  Sound Teeth  and   Hotly Only to  Ilo Had  by Its r-r-ijuen- Vsv.  It is hut iv little thing, yet on its  proper uso depends much of tho happiness of modern man. Why civilized  teeth should ho so rotten is a question  which has often been debated, and probably tho truo answer is ruovc complex  than somo would think. Many fjood  mothers oro content to put all toothache  dowu'to lollipops, but that sugar in itself is not responsible for bad teeth is  proved by tho splendid "ivories" often  possessed by negroes who practically  live upon tlio sugar cane and thrive  upon it, too, during the whole of tho  season when it is iu maturity. ~~entiil  decay is common enough, however,  among negroes in towns, and it scorns  clear that tho caries of tho teeth which  is so common among most civilized  races is duo not to any particular article  of diet so much ns to digestive and m*.-  tritivo changes imposed upon us by our'  niodo of lifo and to somo extent by tho  fact that by, hook or crook wo do somehow manage to live, notwithstanding  our bad teeth, whereas in a stato of nature tho toothless man soou dies.  Recognizing, theu, that until tho time  arrives when somo great social reformer  either mends or eiicis our present social  conditions our Icuth will tend to rot,  aud that, what over tho predisposing  causes, tho final act in tho production of  caries is tho lodgment of microbes on  and around tho teeth, wc sue that for  long to come tho toothbrnsh will bo a  necessity if lho health i.s to ba maintained. It is only by the frequent usei ot  this little instrument that ihofo inimito  ncuumtiluiions can ho removed which  are at tho root of so much mischief. ��������� A  few elementary lessons in bacteriology  would, wo fancy, greatly startle many  people aud certainly would show them  tho futility of trusting to ono scrub a  day. Tho"fact i.s tliat if peoplo, instead  of "looking :il, tho toothbrush irom au  .esthetic point of view and scrubbing  away with tooth powders ( I) to make  their front le.elli white, would regard  it merely as au'aid to cleanliness", thoy  would tee that tho time to uso ifc is 'litter meals uud afc night, not just lit tbo  morning only, when the debris is left  from tho day before has been fermenting .'tud browing acid nil night through.  They would also seo bow inefficient; an  instrument the common toochbruib id  unless ic i.s used with considerable judgment:. One of tho secondary advantages  of spending a good deal of monoy ou  dentistry is that at least one learns the  value of one's tooth. 13y the time wo  have got them dotted over with gold  stoppings and gold crowns we learn to  tako care of them, even although that  may involve the troublo of cleaning  them more than once a day and using  perhaps moro than one brush for the  purpose.���������Hospital.

Lhe majority of the voLe polled  wen- in l.-ivor of prohibition eiY.'cL  should he given to that decision. Mr.  Mclncini'y objected to the connection  between the plebiscite, and the franchise bill as lie die! not believe the  franchise bill would be carried in ils.  present shape. It was unfair and he  thought uniiai'Iintueiitary to attach a  bill Lo aiiother one when tho late of  "he other one was uncertain.

The measles and thu Spani-h-  American war are (he principal  topics of conversation just now.  The measles have a little the host  nf it, esneciftlly among the  children.

"Papa," sha said to tho happy father,  "I havo thought of a name for ths baby.  Wo will call her Imogen."  Pupa was a matter of fact tnr.n, who  knew there was nothing in that baby  different from most others, and ho didn't  wish to seo his child saddled with -_  name that wouldn't, fit iu with other  circumstances.  "���������Fancy lier marrying a man named  Snooks," ho thought. -'Imogen Snook.,  will sonnd nice, won't it? Bur. if I .-ay  co she'll begin to cry and will insist  upon it."  After a little refitccion ho thought of  a plan.  "I think that's a lovely name, ia"  dear!" bu cried. " 11 was my fin-t sweetheart's. She will take ir. as a compliment, nnd it will always remind me.  Yes, that nnd your dear mother's name,  Mary, are thei best I know."  "I rhink, ntipa," she taid-after a  pause, "we hnd better call her Mary,  after my mother."  And tho artful man chuckled to himself.���������Strand Magazine.  t.he department of jusLici- in the'.

The lll.UAi.li has never had  the least idea lhat the lobbying of  selfish and interested laud specultilors  would be of any avail with the government against. (he ah no.st unanimous  wish of the residents of this place for  municipal self government... The bill  will not lake long iu passing the house  anil vvill no doubt appoint an early  dale for the lirst election of n mayor  and council for Kevelstoke. The Ilrc't-  Ai.n earnestly hopes that, public spirit,  will prevail and that, proitiinont business men vvill be found willing to come  forward unil seek election for thesi.  olliccs. An enoi moos step towards  our future prosperity vvill be attained  if the first council starts the municipality right, at first. If our affairs are  begun on economical and business  lines, they aie likely lo continue to be  administered in the same way. But  if we commence with a big list, of salaried officials, carelessly supervised  and with the inception of public works  beyond the requirements of u reasonable! and conservative estimate of  immediate development, it will ,be u  very difficult task for some, succeeding  council to place mailers 'on a better  footing. Even from Ihe most selfish  standpoint it will pay men with a  stake in this place to come forward  and run for the council.  An era of extravagance nnd incompetence 'is ii very I'usy mutter to in-  ii'.iguiiiie in any municipality tinel it is  at the start when the temptation is  greatest and the facilities most fatally  numerous. Once the minds of the  ratepayers have become accustomed  to carefulness and a wise economy .in  the administration nf their affairs,  once ii machinery ol" checks and safeguards lias heen built, up. any change  iu a contrary direction is liable to be  noted and denounced. We have in  Kevelstoke the makings of the best  towns in Kootenay. Itis distinctly  worth any business man's while, however much he may be lieeessnrily  occupied witb 'his own ��������� immediate*  alfairs, to lend a hand to place its  municipal business" on'a secure and  conservative basis.  .  2  Agent for the  Blicketiscterfer  Typewriter  Dealer in Hats, Caps.
