Array ���"{&*.-  \  STILL FIGHTING. THE FILIPINOS  THE   ISLAND   OF  PANAY  The Scene of a Battle, in Which the Americans Appear to Have  Been Bested.  ^4>  the  the  bat-  Iloillo, March 21..���A battalion of  Eighteenth infantry,  a   platoon of  sixth artillery, and a machine-gun  tery made a reeonnaisance in  the direction of Mandurriao and Santa Barbara on  Thursday.    While  they   were returning  the insurgents attacked  the outposts on  the right aud alight followed.   General  Miller was on the scene early and directed  the operations from immediately  behind  tho fighting line.   He had severaljiarrow  escapes.   The line advanced by rushes for  three thousand yards under a hot Are,0  pouring in   deliberate volleys   upon the  enemy's position,   the  artillery   making  good  practice.   By the time the   forces  were   within   300   yards  of the enemy's  final   position  darkness  fell   preventing  the    charge,   for    which   the  Tennessee  men and companies of the Eighteenth on  the right had already prepared by fixing  bayonets.   The retirement upon .iaro was  accomplished in good order.   The engagement was brought on by the enemy's persistent attacks upon.the outpost at Jaro  bridge.     Nothing  could   be   gained   by  forcing the 'enemy'back further, as it was  impossible    with   the    limited   number  of     troops     to      hold      the     position.  The   American   troops   were  exhausted  by   fighting   aud   having   to  wade knee  deep through rice fields aiid sugar cane.  There were several cases of prostration  by the heat.   The only man killed ..as  private   Louis Biehl of  the   Eighteenth  infantry.   The wounded number fifteen.  A bullet passed through privato William  Rovenberger's   wrist   and   entered    his  mouth, between the gum aud  the cheek,  without injuring his head.   There were  other miraculous escapes as ,the men advanced   amid   a  perfect hail  of bullets.  The severity of the engagement may be  judged  by  the fact that the Eighteenth  regiment alone fired 62,800 rounds,   lo is  estimated that the insurgents with their  more than two thousand rilles fired mure  than   double out total of ammunition."  Private Biehl brought in  private Daly  wounded aud gave warning to hurry up  some  ammunition,  as most of the men  were short. ~ He   then   returned to the  lighting line and was struck in the client.  He fell saying, "I'm done tor," and died in  ten minutes.  It is impossible to accurately estimate  the (insurgent losses, as the American  troops converged at a given point without  traversing the ground shot over, but the  day after the battle the enemy could be  seen from the belfry of the Faro chtirch  carrying away their dead. The minimum  estimate of their losses is 200 killed and  300 wounded.   .  Instructions  printed   on the  captured  " cases of ammunition were" iii German, and  showed that the cartridges came from the  artillery .'depot at Mayence.    -It.-is suspected  the ammunition aud arms have  been supplied .to the insurgents from Ger-"  man and Japanese sources and from the  . French colonies.   Iloillo is quiet audbusi-  fliess'is irP^iVingrs^-lffl-p-illi YM,"" "* .f\ :"  TUESDAY AFTERNOO-N", MARCH 21,  1809.

An informal meeting of the- executive of the  South Kootenay Board of Trade was held  this afternoon in the.office of the secretary, at which Mr.  Scott explained  the  basis arranged  by the commissioner.'**, so  far, for the Canadian exhibit;   The total  space   allotted   to   the   British   empire  is 350;0b0 square feet,  of which Canada  gets 3.),100 square feet, or about one-eighth  of the whole.   In the Canadian portion of  this building exhibits of. all classes and  characters   can   be   placed,   the    space  being entirely within the control of the  Canadian authorities.   There will  be no  purejy provincial exhibit, but the exhibits  from   the different provinces will be so  arranged as to be of a national character,  illustrative of the products of the entire  Dominion,  without respect to locality of  origin.    The collection and selection of  I the exhibits is left entirely with the prov-  .cial governments, the Dominion goverh-  fment undertaking-to   transport  all  exhibits free of charge to Paris.   The'exhibits from British Columbia will consist  .'qf  samples of the   mining,  fishing and  "���timber   resources -of   the   province, and  fwillj wherever possible,  be collected by  .1t;he local boards  bf  trade,   where  such  exist.

".���'"���"  On the bulletin board of the Merchants'  Exchange in San Francisco a few days  ago appeared the following item : "Arrived���British ship Crown of India, 296  days from Newcastle, Australia." The  greater part of the 290 days was passed in  Sydney harbor; awaiting the arrival from  England of steel masts and spars and  other equipment not procurable in Australia. The first fourteen days of the  voyage were responsible for the long  delay.  The Crown, of India left Newcastle,  bound for San Francisco, on May 6, 1898.  Soon after the towboat had disappeared  the barometer began to fall. About 7  o'clock a hurricane came along and the  next moment the ship was a complete  wreck aloft. That night, within a radius  of twenty miles, fourteen ships were  sunk and almost as many suffered serious  da-mage. V.  Wheu day dawned laud was visible  about four miles distant. "A terrific sea  was running and the sea was uncontrollable. While she was in this helpless condition several British Ships passed the  Grown of India within speaking distance.  No notice was taken of her signals of distress and- when several steamers, one of  them the Tokin Maru, a Japanese steamer  in charge of British officers, passed* by  without a sign, captain Corkill began to  lose heart. On the third evening of the  storm, and after half a dozen steamers  and sailing vessels had passed by without  offering to help, the American schooner  Golden shore hove in sight. She was  bound from Port Blakey for Adelaide,  and her captain, Rasmusseu, was accompanied by his wife. The. mate of tha-  schboner reported a "Chinese junk on the  port bow."

Kapps received here yesterday a  car of ale and beer from Toronto over the  Canadian Pacific railway via tlie Crow's  Nest Pass branch in the remarkably fast  time of thirteen days. Mr. Kapps is very  much pleased at receiving the consignment in such a short time, and it goes to  show that the Cauadian Pacific railway  has now the quickest route across the  continent both for freight and passenger  traffic.  Commanding General Deposed.  New York, March 21.���A Manila dispatch published in the Journal says the  Filipino commanding general has been  deposed for the position he took in trying  to induce Aguinaldo to cease further resistance to the American forces. The  cable yesterday told of the beheading ot  general Lagarda for the same reason.  Trotter's Successor Chosen.  St. John, N. B., March 21.���Rev. J. A.  Gordon has been extended a call to the  Calvary Baptist church at Victoria to fill  a vacancy caused by* the resignation of  the Rev. Ralph.W. Trotter.  If  the   miners  and    mine   owners  of  Southern Kootenay do not wish to see the  new legislation put into effect, which prohibits   the  employment  of  meu   underground in the mines for a longer period  than eight hours in the twenty-four, they  should make such representations to the  authorities at Victoria as   will convince  them   that   the   operation" of   the-new  amendment is not in the interests of the  district.   This should not be hard to do.  The legislation came as a response to the  demands    of  labor   agitator?,   and   not  miners, and if it is shown that the opera-  tion.bf the amendment is not desirable iu  the interests of either the working miners  or the mine owners, the government has  the power to relieve the mining sections  from its operations.  The amendment which is causing all the  trouble is comprised in just twenty  words, which were inserted iu the Inspection of Metalliferous Mines Act as  section thirteen of the act. The original  section provided that no boy under the  age pf sixteen years should be employed  underground for more than fifty-four  hours in any one week, or more than ten  hours in any one day. By an amendment  ^passed at the last section this clause was  struck out and the following inserted in  its placie: "No person shall be employed  underground in any metalliferous mine  for more than eight hours in every  twenty-four hours."  No change was made in the penalties,  and as the enforcement of the old act was  left wholly in the hands of the government inspector and the minister of mines,  the government has still the power to  relieve the mine owners by allowing the *  new amendment to remain a dead letter.  If the working miners are sincere.in their  request to be left alone, the uew amendment can be quietly dropped with the  consent of the government,' the miuers  and the mineowners, and no inconvenience  will result. ��� ' ^  Tbe thirty-fourth section of'the act  makes it clear that prosecutions which  might arise under this* section' must be  originated by either-the government inspector of mines or the minister of mines.  It recites: "No prosecution shall be insti-J "  tuted against the owner, agent, manager, .  or lessee of a mine to which this act ap;  plies for any offence under this act whicli  can be prosecuted before a court of summary jurisdiction, except by au inspector  or with the consent in writing of the  minister of mines; and in the case of any  offence of wbich the owner, agent, manager, - or lessee- of a. mine is not alleged; to- be personally the perpetra-  tov,-if he"'proves that .he"has -takf-nT"  all, reasonable means to prevent the -  commission thereof, an inspector shall not  institute any prosecution ^against such  owner, agent, manager or .lessee, if satisfied that he had taken such reasonable  means as aforesaid."        ,      T "   .  .l-JntQ'  *t^!3The Independence of Woman.

Sir Wilfrid Lliurier is, beyond a doubt,  a graceful and picturesque public character: he has assuredly a great deal of  personal magnetism ; he does nOfc like  hurting the feelings of knyohe; he has ail  eloquent tongue, and the chivairic manners of his nationality. Biit We devoutly  and sincerely wish he was not so graceful  aud smooth���we wish he had more British  brutality and coarseness and that he cduld  say "yes" or '"no';' plainly. It is probably  more his misfortune than his fault that  he cannot apparently give a straightforward answer. He cannot help talking all .  around the point, and being" ambiguous,  either from design or second nature. But  it is a terribly expensive habit for Canr  ada.    One More Less.  East Kootenay has now but five newspapers; the  Golden  Miner  is  a corpse.  Thomas.

The  plant is likely to be moved to some point  on Windermere lake, possibly to Aythel-  mar, where it will bloom under a, new  name and a new proprietorship. o  J-  THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON,  B.C., TUESDAY,..

Ninety pet-  cent of this ore will be smelted in the  United States, which means that a 100-ton  stack will be kept running every day in  the year on ore mined in the Kootenays.  A 100-stack kepC running steadily means  a disbursement of $100,000 annually for  wages, coke, coal, and other supplies, all  of which can be procured right here in  Kootenay. Then, any legislation that  will aid to bring about the smelting of  silver-lead ore in Kootenay should be  hastened. V": '-   ."-'"     '     ..

It is nineteen years since the first shipload   of  frozen   mutton  was despatched  from Melbourne.   The trade in  refrigerated meat was at first very slow in developing.     In   1SS3  only "$11,000   worth   of  sheep carcasses were sent across the sea  from Argentina.   It was not   till about  ten years ago that the business began to  take on  very large proportions.   Today  New Zealand  has its freezing  works at  Auckland,    Wellington   and    elsewhere,  and every year over $5,000,000 worth of  fi-b, beef,  mutton and lamb are frozen  solid, sewed.up in canvas, stored in the  ' cold chambers of ships built for the trade  and   sent  to markets   in Polynesia and  Europe.   In 1S90 New, South Wales's exportation   of  sheep carcasses   was   only  200,000, but it has steadily increased, and  in J.S5H. it reached the large figure of 1,200,-  000 carcasses, averaging fifty-six pounds.  It costs three cents a pound to kill, freeze,  ship and sell the mutton inV London; and  among the other places of large shipment  are Manchester, South Africa and Malta.

No matter what their educational qualifications may be, they are physically unfitted for the arduous and difficult duty  of  training  boys  who are merging into  manhood.    If the teaching of the various,  subjects from  text-books constituted all  of education! women would be as suitable  for this purpose as men,  but there is a  more   important duty resting upon the  teachers in  the public school in dealing  with the boys of that age, and it is one  that womeu are unabl*** to meet.   Quite  as  much  as a  knowledge of arithmetic,  boys need an example of luanlines.v.   The  strength   and    virility    of    a    capable,  broad-minded teacher are imparted to the  boys in a way that fills them with ambition and stimulates in them a desire to  make the most of life,  which, after all, is  of greater importance than the grinding  on facts of history.   We have come to  learn that education does  not consist of  memorizing treatises, but that it consists  chiefly of giving the scholars a thorough  grounding in the theory of various subjects, added  to an understanding of the  principles   which  should    actuate   individual conduct* in all the'relations of life.  The public school system that reduces the  number of male teachers and increases;  the number of female teachers cannot be'  considered the most desirable. -  OF CANADA  Capital, Paid  Reserve  Up  $2,000,000  1,200,000  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO  D. R. WILKIE, General Manager  ONE   OF   HIS   DOWNS.  A Movement in the Wrong Direction.  [Toronto News, March 17th.] .  Burning the past year, the nurhber of  female teachers in the public schools of  the Province . iucreased 158, while the  number of male teachers increased 3(5.  This movement is in the wrong direction.  Instead of a large number of women being  employed in the teaching profession, the  interests of the scholars (and consequently of the community at large) demand that the men shall take many places  that are now held by females. For the  junior grades, where scholars of tender  years are taught, female .teachers can do  first-closs work. Giveu the right temperament, they are superior to men for junior  classes, but, wheu the scholars���and particularly boys of twelve to fifteen years of  age--are placed under the control of a woman, the best results cannot be obtained.  One of the weak spots in the Toronto  public school system, is the number pf  A Hungry Gambler Who Could Not Live  on Champagne Alone.  !

Captain Troup received a telegram last
night stating that the body of John

January 20th, had been found floating in
the lake near Ilosebery. The body will

pacemakers are paid. He will not consent
to any division of the/purse. McFarland
received a challenge from Eddie McDuffie,
which he will accept on the same conditions he asks from Elkes. -        •>
