He reports that he A'isited the island on  February 1st and found   the people in a  state of consternation.    The  Spaniards,  it appears, had   left  three  months  previous! y,   after    saying    the   Americans  would   take   oArer   the    government   in  three days.    The  Spaniards, it is added,  turned   tlie  natiA'e  soldiery  adrift  and  liberated     the     coiiA'icts.      The     head  .man,    it     is.    further     stated,     asked  captain    Pfoert    to    secure    protection  from the goAreruor of the Sadan, and the  captain  gaA'e them  a British merchant  ensign, Avith instructions for the  people  to say, if tliey AArere molested, that they  Avere under British protection, also handing the head  man  a  letter iu this sense  and claiming a British  protectorate OA*er  Palawan.

The hearing of the case of Ker a's. Beer  Brothers, an action brought by contractor Ker to recover the sum of $135,  the amount deducted by Beer Brothers  for demurrage upon the erection of the  addition to the old Houston-Bigclow  block, occupied the attention of the  court yesterday from 10 o'clock in the  forenoon till 10:30 in the eA'euing.  The defendants in the action put in a  counter claim of $500 for demurrage, or  in the CA'ent of the contract not being  considered binding, of a claim of $107.50  for loss of rents. The case was tried before judge Forin and a jury comprised of  A. H. Clements, J. Neelands, Fred. J.  Squire, A. E. Lott and S. V. Campbell  S. S. Taylor, Q. C, Avho conducted the  case for Ker, established that there Avas  no contract, the same not having been  signed by the Beer Brothers He also  shoAved that the defendants had not  giveu the contractor possession of the  premises until thirty days had elapsed  after the time specified in the draft  agreement, and contended therefore that  the defeudands Avere not entitled to retain demurrage.  Judge Forin in presenting the case to  the jurors said that the practice of the  court Avtis to set itself against penalties  as such, and to do justice as betAA'een  man and man. The contract betAveen  tae jjarties could only be useful as a  reference. The question AA'hich the jurors  had to decide Avas how far the Beer  Brothers Avere to blame for the delays  AA'liich prevented contractor Ker from  proceeding AA'ith the Avork of erecting the  building in question. The OAvners AA'ere  to haA'e giA'en the contractors possession  on July 6th. It rested for the jurors to  say AA'hether, not being gi\ren possession  on that date, the contractor could be expected to begin Avork before the lines and  levels AA'ere furnished him. The jurors  Avould also determine, AA'hether the circumstances that the contractor Avas not  giA'en possession on the date agreed did  .not compeihim toTpAVprk at _a -<li.sadAjan-=  I'-age'j-aTA-OngliOiit^  /aubimttecWiye��<questious:TO ^  ���# n    U      *     "n   j">n   ua      U_P        oP      **-J.n      J,   ��� a, Ji   UpD.,-   ���   SI'   ��   ��d   _    ' n"     n ���' "fl"  --Oi.?,1lnn     "   n     P&-&  f- (J;) 'iBsm^ .-many* :days>"d.^layf4vere, _th_$  ; oAvneiB responsible .for*on.aceoi\ntpoJc not��  jhi.vang^exea^\ated.ffandj,:hayn)giwthe  o_.C5VnCI.O    X   .lll_"    ���D p���n_ii_ "pf n       ij ��-**1.n0.'* ip m1^        _,  �� %   [ft,'.

On refill measurements taken by the city engineer have provt.il this fuel,  beyond question, and the proof was that the supply-  run short last winter at a time when J he fli'inio was  porfeclly clour and all tlie available wafer was running.  Since then the connections have been increased close  upon 10 piT cent, nnd promise before the next lowest  stage, which o.curs every autumn and spring, to reach  UK) per cent.  The above is from The Economist, and  is a fair specimen of the misleading statements that from time to time appear iu  The Economist and The Miner, the tAvo  organs of the present city council. According to the aboA'e, OA'er 150 new. connections AA'ith the AArater mains haA'e been  made since January 1st, and that there  AA'ill be a total of over SOO connections by  next spring. At no time last Avinter Avas  there an insufficient supply'of water running in Anderson creek; but there Avasan  inefficient creAA' in .charge, of the water  Avorks system. There has not been 150  iioav connections made this year, and no  better evidence is needed to disprove the  statement than the receipts from Avater  rates. That the number of connections  Avill be SOO by next spring is simply absurd, for- the gas AA'orks and the electric  traimvay combined Avill not increase the  present number of householders a quarter of one per cent.

Phil White, the superintendent of the  Wilcox mine, is doAvn this morning and  reports a neAV strike of four feet of solid  galena in the. new shaft iioav doAvn about  tAvelve feet in the Fourth of July claim.  It is entirely a new chute of ore. He  brought some of the rock Avith him, and  it is uncommonly good looking stuff. He  says that the strong force of men under  hini are vigorously pushing forward the  work and that all results are most encouraging.

At the Evening Star the Peterson boys  are busy pumping out Avater from the  shaft.

It is the liand that has made the  Transvaal preeminent among gold producers, and its possibilities are not yet  fathomed. The reefs haA'e been found to  a depth of 2500 feet and the structure of  the country seems to shew that they continue to a great depth. The fact that  the ore is phenomenally uniform foi- a  gold deposit gi\'es A'alue, Avithin curiam  limits, to tin; computations as to the  quantity of the metal that may be obtained, o  The mining engineers in the "Rand are  confident that the ore may be profitably  AA'orked to a depth of 5000 feet.  The total gold production of the world  in the four centuries after the discoA'ery  of America was about !)22() million dollars. It is accordingly believed, on the  best information now attainable, that the  accessible gold in a narrow strip of land  in South Africa, comprising about one  hundred square miles, is approximately  equal to a third of the Avorld's entire  product for four hundred years.
