Peters  urging  the ,town  tn  i-.ii-.i- a company  for  the proposed  new  infantry  logi-  meiit   nf   militia   for   tin* interior of  British Columbia, will   dn'iblless l.avp  a   favorable   ell'i'Cl.     Tbe   suggest ion  made  in  tlje  resolution  'orwurdi'd to  him that this place is the natural head-  ipuirters for such  a   corps will there-  lore be likely to meet with every  consideration.     The proposed c-oi ps   will  probably have one of its six companies  located at. Knuiloops, another perhaps  in   '.he   Okanagan,   another   in   East  Kootenay and   the remaining three at  Revelstoke.   Nelson     and     Rossland.  For a  regiment di-*tiUnited this way  Revelstoke is by force of geographical  position the proper  lie.-idipiiirtei-.-i.    It  is easily accessible from all these points  and   is   central   in   the only possible  sense, which   is   thai   lhe lines   from  them   all   converge   upon it   without  ciossing.     Another    ad vantage,   this  place   possesses, which   must not~ be  ovei looked and  that is the extent of  ground   for    manoenviing   purposes.,  greater than any other point in   West  Koolenay.    It "is   also   an   excellent  point   at   which   to construct a   first  class rifle range.   Tlie  Herald urges  these  considerations  upon  the officer  commanding this military district, not  doubting that they will receive c.ueful  attention   and   be   productive of the  desiied  results.    The  point is one of  imporlani-e to the town, as I hi* selection of Revelstoke as  headquarter.. of  the regiment would mean the erection  of an armory ~inci"i!i*ill shed here and  would  serve to emphasize  the importance of the geographical  position  of  this place on the   minds of the outside  public'   It would also have an exellenl  effect in helping to form the very promising   new 'material in   town  into the  crack  company of thu proposed new  regiment.

'-Tapdliv  2S.���������After (be  United States licet has been in front of  Havana for two days, the guns of the  first actual engagement are now smoking. A special to the New York  Herald says: The Spanish forts fit  Matan-j-is Buy, Cuba, near Havana  were shelled by the United States butteries at 1 o'clock. Tht* New York led  tlie bombardment, - tbe Cincinnati,  Pittsburg and others followed iorniing  almost fi complete triangle.  A pull' of smoke was noticed from  the east side of the bay and au eight  inch shell fell short. The New York  and otheis then opened tire with  eight inch guns. None of the shells  froin tlie shore hit the ships and the  shellstrom the vessels could lie seen  stiikiiig the mortar and rocks of the  fortifications.  New York, April 2S.���������11 lo 5 p. in.  i A despatch via Key West from a correspondent of tho Herald, who witnessed the bombardment of Malanzas  by American ships says:- Admiral  Sampson this afternoon bombarded  and destroved the Spanish balleries; in  position atid'in touise of construction  at the entrance of lhe haibor of  M.-itimzis. The il.tg ships New York.  Monctar, Piuitan and the cruiser  Cincinnati were engaged..  I have no menus of knowing the  casnalities on lhe Spanish side, but  they must he considerable. .While the  New Yoik. Puritan and Cincinnati  were l econnoitering. the forts for the  purpose of locating and destroying the  formidable defenses lhat were being  ciinstineled, the flagship was was filed  upon bv the butteries at Point  Rubakiiya and Point, Maya, gusirdiug  'lh'-\'iiti-.itu.~_ lo (he harbor. "The New  York replied;, firing from uu" eight-  inch gulf on*' the port , side. ' She  steamed boldly in between ."lhe batteries and .--uoif blazed away with boLb  biond sides. The Puritan steamed  in beside the New York and engaged  the I'orlificalions on Point Maya, while  the New York w ent. to the starboard  close-up and pom ml shell into Ruh-  .ii.itaya. The (.iiicimuitiretiniiued well  i.stPi-ii under orders. She signalled for  permission lo engage and was soon  tiling her gun** on thu foil on the west  side of the hav. The batteries lired  explosive shells, which fell short of the  mark. One hurst just beyond the  stern of the New York and lhe shell  and shot ploughed above her bows. It  look the tlnoe ships 18 minutes to  silence the balleries. The last shot  fired by the Spanish i-aine from point  l.tib.-ilcayfr.���������Thu-Pui'ilair-i eplied-wil.il-  it twelvu-inch gun. The shell struck  the battery with wonderful accuracy,  blowing rip a portion of it. After  waiting for the Spanish t������ rentiw the  engagement, the ships withdrew, leaving both battel ies in mills.  'Ma unil", April 23.���������Spain and  United Stales are watching each  other. Up to last report Madrid was  absolutely unarmed. The capture of  the American vessel Saranac by  Spanish gunboat near Manilla caused  a momentary excitement, but,thu town  i.s expectant of tbe result of tliu action  likely to occur oil' the Philippines and  awaits the outcome wilh pertccl con  liih-ri'ce.

The port  of departure was nol given.  Washington, April 2).���������The navy  deparlmeiit has completely ceased iLs  purchase of ships for conversion into  war vessels, owing to the exhaustion  uf the '"���������.'-'-.OOO.OOO war fund, lt is confidently expected that congiess will  come to the relief, as the department  is still in need of auxiliary vessels.  Evidently General Filzlmgh Lee does  not consider of much importance the  silencing of Miitanzas. lio says the  fortifications-were antiquated and not  likely to offer any rorrnidable resistance. __,   Naval circles look to the. Philippines  for the first big war news. Admiral  Dewey.'jthe naval officers say, either  must take a portion of tlie Philippines  anil" iiiakc abase of supplies and a  temporary home for tbe ships, nr lead  his ship straight across the Pacific for  San Francisco. .

She put out her light*- and attempted to run away, i'lii! warship  Monitor lired live shots inlo her and  the gunboat Michias also opened hie  as well ;ts the warship Terror, and  wounded one sailor. Some 12 shots  struck her. They hove to and. surrendered. The Guido was richly  freighted find had money on board for  the Spanish troops.  London.

THE   MYSTERIOUS    SKELETON  Found on the Revelstoke Mountain and  Supposed to be the Remains of a Chinaman.  Late yesterday afternoon a pai ty of  Itevelstoke residents assembled near  the .McCarthy block and under the  guidance of Mr. Kd. While proceeded  to fist end lhe mountain at the back.  The officials of Lhe party were Prov.  Const. McKfi'.'. Mining Recorder Pax-  ton. Coroner McLean and Dr. McKech-  nie. After a siiiait. climb of about an  h mr Mr. Whito relocated the spot aL  which lie had fuunil the human skeleton, as reported in our edition of la.-ij  Tuesday. The body was lying on iis  back with t.he upper part up bill. The  upper part was covered with clothing  from wliich pi-otiuded some bleached  veilebi.iu and llio hip bone. Just  above lay the skull of a dog. Below  find to the light of the skeleton lay  one shoe unclosing the bones of a font.  On disturbing Lhe remains it, was evident in the opinion of competent  judges, present that, the clothes particularly Ihu iindei-ihirt and thu shoe  were thn.ojil a Chinaman, a theory to  whiih the small size of the bones gave  considei ablo c olor. A piece of tobacco  was found in the clothing, under everything a large case knife with the 'nig  blade open was picked up. Tlie knife  had a while bone handle, two blades  and a corkscrew. A search was instituted fur llio skull, which was n.Using  but it was not lound, although a part  of a h.it was picked up under  AN EASY'  VICTORY  Though Three  Hundred  Were Fired -  Shots?  i fallen  tieea little lJwer down and below that  again a leg bone and some curious  looking tape. No papers of any kind  wen* found, The popular theory  seemed to be that, the leniaiiia were  tlioso of Sam, a Chinese cook ni F.  Mi Ctrl hy's boarding house, who two  years ago last full dissappeared mysteriously without leaving any trace lo  his face, lie was supposed at the time  to have been made away wilh by his  fellow countrymen, among whom he  was disliked, iis he would not join their  -ci-ref society. If so he must have been  taken up tliu mountain alive and done  away with on the spot, as it would be  simply impossiblo Lo convey it corpse  up there. In that, case there is'no  knowing what hideous tragedy ihe  sleup mountain side which overlooks  this town ui.iv-.hiive 'witnessed. _ The  bones of the dog, which were scattered  till around, nre, however, on this, or in  fact any theory hard tn explain: The  spot commands a full view of tbe town.  Even if a dog were guarding the remains of his dead master a very short  while would bring him within reach of  food. The whole discoveiy is shrouded  in tnysteiv. into which there is very  little likelihood of light being tin own.  But theie seems little doubt -it all  events thai the man was a Chinaniati.  Thu remains were brought down to  lown. The coroner held an inquest on  Iheni Lhis forenoon.  PINGSTON CREEK.  (By Henry Bush, M. E.)  Three miles froin Pingstim Creek on  the, western, side   nf   Ai-iow  Luke, a  valuiibleTiiineraPlH*lt"^\v"li"~tliscoveTe"a  some  time since consisting of a huge  outcrop heavily mineralized. I rat-cable  without a break for   twelve miles and  showing a width of from 20 to 100 feet.  This   body of   ore is  pyi itile carrying  values in "cold, silver, copper an 1 lead  equal from "-.IO to $20 per ton.   The ore  resembles that in lho Leltoi  and other  Riissliind   mines.    For   two   or   three  miles on   the trend   Llie outcrop .-hows  out in   places  thiough  the mos.-, but  after lbe limber is pas-ed tlie ledge has  been expo-ed by the effects of nature.  The whole width of  the vein matter is  composed of  pvritite quai-i-/ and solid  galena   in   seam-   i-.tiiyitig   values in  gold, silver   and   copper   willi   heavy  pi'iccntages   of   lead   equal   tn GO percent.    A" shaft,   being   sunk is now in  solid ore and the ore iii the bottom is indicative of still further impi oveinenl"*  in    smelling    values.

Tuul^r and water are  plentiful, and the   facilities   an* excellent for all  purpose-.   The ore can be  won and shipped from the very surface,  and   .ill   woik being done is   in   p.i~T  ore.    Little dead work   need be anticipated wilh   the exception   of   making  a train for transit. When this work has  been   completed   ore   can   be shipped  from the mine fit a cost not exceeding  10    cer.ts    .per    ton.    An    enormous  quantity nf   ore can be   won  at   little  cost   and   shipped continuously.    The  0. P. R. are   building   wbaifs   so that  vessels of the Rossland  type can come  iind go .-it all times.    There is a future  befoie this section   of   AnowLakeof  which  the Cl, P. It. already with  their  usual energy and  tact have taken the  full.ad vantages-.   The   bright   mining  prospects   nnd     the   cheap   facilitie.  available will  precipitate matters and  fing. ton Creek Camp will jump to the  front at an early date us   a   large   oie  shipper.    A good   trail has been made  to Pingston Lake, and ruining activity  is apparent in every direction.  _������  Their Naval Strength.

YELLOIF JOURNALISM  The American nation is beginning to realize that ic has been  dragged into a war which has  already cost millions of dollars  and which may cost thousand, oi"  lives, solely through the mercenary  sensationalism uf the yollow  .iingos who rim its "newspapers.  Yellow journalism has been exploited to the highest degree'by  the Xew Tork World and thf?  New York Journal. These papers  have-issued edition after edition  printed in- colors so gaudy aud  indiscriminate that each page  looks like a dish of fried eggs with  the yolks smashed. The so called  illustrations are of soldiers,  sailors, exploding bombs and iron  dads in action, while the reading  matter is alcoholic, vitriotie,  electric aud sensational. . One  editor broke down under the strain  aud actually issued au edition  declaring war several weeks ago.  He was taken from the office of  The World to the madhouse���������a  iuerciful change of scene, because  lie will' notice the difference and  the public will. A clever English  writer in New York has been  describing some of the phases of  this crazy journalism. "It is the  evening editions,"' he says, "that  are capping the climax of  sensationalism aud audacity.  They are coining money out of the  war scare, which they themselves  have manufactured, and may yet  see brought to a hideous reality.  The yellowest of all these papers,  The Journal, actually printed 30  extra editions in a space, of 12 or 11  hours, and sold a million and a  half copies to tlie shop girls', store  norters," errand boys, counter  .-jumpers, aud oar room loungers,  who get their daily education out  of this sort of mental pabulum.  =--- ���������'i-'j^i^-xt-tire^2-lth~editi6Trf_irlt  curiosity, as I went into a theatre  Jit S o'clock. After the second act  I went ont and got the'20ch edition  and at 11 o'clock, when \ was on  my way home, I bought the'20th  extra. Every day this is repented  in a greater or less degree, The  news carts, which race madly  about the town, clearing the  streets like fire engines, have large  placards on their side, announcing  'Latest War News:" The news  boys always yell: 'Extry. All  about the war!* precisely as   if we  *   were in the midst of hostilities.  ������ "The recipe for making a war  extra is tn get a line of fact or  rumor and charge it with the  carbonic acid gas of imagination.  until it lills three coliinuis, half  made up of headlines in poster  type. Here are someiactual title,  of recent articles: "The Pone i?  with America,' "Hismarcl. Says  Germany Favors our Side,' 'Six  New Warships Bought,"'Spaniards  call our Senators Dirty Pig-." 'A  "Journal "Woman Hides on a  Dynamite Torpedo,* 'United States  Rejects International Arbitration,'  "Kritain's Minister Galls on the  President to make an Anglo-Saxon  Alliance.'  '���������The minor articles aud picture=  deal with the starving Cubans,  contemptuous cartoons about  Spain, accounts of cruel Spanish  bull fights, or pictures of Sullivan,  Corbett, Fitzsimmons and Peter  Jackson. the prize fighters, dressed  in soldier clothes, each with a  uatriotic sentiment "underneath.  like: 'Vou bet vour bottom dollar  I'll fight,* credited to the ex-  cbampion of the bruisers, John L.  Sullivan.  "The evening papers have each a  staff of 20 men on duty day and  night, ready at a moment's notice  to turn out s eorupleto edition  filled with hair raising war news  and pictures, any,one of which, if  taken into a dairy, would sour all  the mi Ik.  "Another paper keeps three  steamboats at sea loaded to the  gunwales with war correspondents-  pencils ready sharpened to  puncture the Spanish cause.  ���������A theatre manager, trying to  imitate patriotism for the snko of  notoriety, spread an immense  Spanish flag iu the foyer of his  theatre in a Germau and Jewish  neighbornood, expecting his audience to walk over it. Before the  doors had been opened many  minutes'the banner was torn in  shreds by an angry crowd, and the  pieces carried off as trophies of  war. This bit of savagery humili  ated millions of Americans, who  yet cannot deny that it shows  what yellow journalism can do.  A young woman, who essayed to  sing the delightful ballad,'In Old  Madrid,' was" hooted off the stage  of one of our music halls, and  when, in another theatre, tho  orchestra played a lively Spanish  fantasia tho people stormed tho  musicians with yells and missiles  until they recreated under tlio  stage. In all the thcacn-s now it  is considered essential to an even-  ing's recreation for the orchestra,  after each act, to play "The Star  Spangled Banner," whereupon tho  entire audience rise, and smg and  chcpi* until their patriotism iiiul.  relief.  "Those patriotic outbursts are  not con lined to theatres. A.  bu-iiiess man entered a Broad wav  restaurant the other day and  ordered a Suanish omelette. The  waiter took his order, but -oon  came back and told hiin he would  have to take his eggs some other  way, as tlio cooks absolutely  refused to make any more Spanish  omelettes until Spain apologizes to  the United States.  "The guest heartily endorsed  tho cooks' position, and changed  liis order. Tho proprietor of tho  restaurant, not to be outdone in  patriotism, immediately struck  'Spanish omelette' from all his bills  of fare.  "'Spanish' has in fact become  the most unpopular word iu the  English language from .an  American point *oc view. During  the past two months a New York  firm that advertises a special  brand ol'Spanish liipiorice'lias lost  half its trade. -Wo havo to  swallow Spanish insults,' snid one  indignant ������citizen, 'but I'll be  darned it we'll swallow Spanish  1 if pi or ice.'  It is no wonder that this correspondent concludes that "this  endless Mood of the most irresponsible sensationalism is breeding an  unnatural volatility to the popular  mind, and should a sharp crisis  come there might be a Hare up  tliat would be infinitely daugorous"'  and tho result has shown his  prophesy to bo a true one.  A FORGOTTEN RESOLUTION  Noi'-Wester: Tlie Montreal Star  recalls the fact that Sir Richard  Cartwright moved the following  amendment to the Supply.- Bill  forlS01-95:  ���������'That inasmuch as enormous  sums of money are exacted from  the people of Canada which are  not paid into the treasury, and  inasmuch as the burdens of the  people are hereby unnecessarily  increased, and as it is of the  utmost importance to the well  being of tho community that not  only should tlie present extravagant expenditure be diminished, but that the said burdens  should be reduced ns largely and  speedily as possible, it is expedient  that in making provision to restore  the equilibrium, as recommended  in the.speech from the throne, the  existing tariff bu so modified that  it mav be made a tariff for revenue  only."  The "extraingant expenditure"  wliich   Sir    Kit-hard    Cartwright  thus denounced  was tin estimated  expenditure   of   $3S,517,li52.     The  estimates for  the   next   financial  year prepared by tho government  of which Sir llichard  Cartwright  is a member amount to .ji'-). 125,879.  It    is    thus    that     Sir    llichard  C-u'twright     has     redeemed   his  promises'of reducing  the burdens  ol'the people largely and speedily.  Not only has  the Liberal government   violated   its   promises  by  increasing instead  of reducing the  cost of government; its pledges to  bring this about by abolishing the  protective tariff and replacing it  with   a   tariff  i'or   levenue   havo  been likcwhe violated.   The tariff  is   today   as   little  a    "tariff   for  revenue only" as was tiie tariff Sir  Richard Cartwright denounced in  the resolution iu question.    Tiie  public naturally wonders why Sir  Richard Cartwright fails to make  tlioso reforms lie insisted on  the  Coti-ervativo government, making  in   ISO I 93.

Ottawa had a sensation last week in  the shape of a lively row between nn  English baroness .aud a well known  Ottawa lady. Jealousy between the  two women culminated in a scene at  the Russell House, which ended in the  fair one from England driving her  rival out of the room, at the point of  her boot, with which she administered  a parting kick.  Mr. Ponton, formerly teller of the  Dominion I3ank at Napanee, has  .brought an action against the bank to  recover $50,01)0 daiuagcu for his arrest  in connection with Lhu bunk robbery  some Lime ago. The venue has been  changed from Napuneii to Belleville  on the application of tliu bank on the  ground that ac the former place the  prejudice which exists against the  baiik would not permit a, fair trial.  Some of the success that attended  Genoral Kitchener's hist advance up  the Nile was due to the fact that Mr.  Rhodes loaned hiui a lot of locomotives*,  built I'or the Bachii.itialiitid railway of  whicli he had some Lh'uty on hand.

Acquaintanceship  between our readers and advertisers is begun at tlie veiy  first time your advertisement appears.. The invitation may  not always be accepted at once, but good will has been  established.  With what a feeling of ease and serenity one enters  the store or hotel that i.s advertised : he is welcome ; he has  been invited to come. With what confidence you inquire for  au advertised article : the proprietor himself believes iu it,  wants you to try it, is interested in your getting it. This  very good will, lhis appreciation of courtesy, this satisfaction  in being'pleasantly asked, has been the foundation of many a  successful business.  Newspaper advertising is something- more than  spending money in. the newspapers. If properly done it is  the making of" acquaintanceship and friendship - that will  surely be"of great value in time to-come. -' ���������     .        ~  "Would  you   have your  business  or your article  so  favorably regarded?

WAR AND THE MINER  There is no doubt that looked fit  from one point of view, a prolonged  war will Have an unfortunate effect, on  lhe mining industries of this province.  They depend very largely for their  proper development on the expeifdi-  turii of outside capital and capital is  limit]. At the first note of war, which  i.s a very uncertain factor in human  existence, capital shrinks into its shell.  In the eastern states for lbe past few  weeks it has lieen impossible Lo obtain  loans from banks except by giving demand notes. Hindu good by gill-edged  securities. Then again llie United  Slulcs government will probably soon  be calling fur a war loan, and much  capiLal will turn Lhat way, as United  States bonds at a sure unci specilied  rale of inleiest will bo looked upon as  a (irst-elass field fur investment. These  conditions will form an obstacle  against the flow of capital into the mining districts.  On the other hand,as the Kootenaian  points out. Lhe war is likely to elfeet  an advance in the price of both lead  and silver. There is a shortage of  silver coin in the states, which i.s a  necessity for the business of the government in war times. The niints  must be opened soon and ^silver is  likely to go up. Lead will probablv  advanco us well owing to the fact that  tbeEurope.-in mai-ket'is Iargolysupplicd  by Spain. This source of supply will  he. largely cut oil' during the" war,  while the. output of Lho United States  lead mines is mostly consumed at  home, so that a great chance nf finding a market in Europe at good prices  i.s now presented to Kootenay. Taking one consideration with another it  is quite possible Lhat the elfeet, of the  war will be to have rather a stimulating than a depressing effect on the  mining industry of British  Columbia.
