 I*  1V  GENERAL   OTIS  WILL  REMAIN  In Charge at  Manila.  Washington, July 2(5. -Tlie president  lists no intention of relieving general Otis  from the military command in bhe Philippines. He had thought seriously atone  time of assigning an officer of high rank  to conmiand the forces in the field, leaving general Otis to perform the administrative duties of governor general. The  president had two propositions before  him, one to niake*Lawton the commanding officer of the fighting, forces, and the  other to send Merritt back to his old  place. The latter assignment would  mean the subordination of general Otis  as governor general to general Merritt,  who outranks him by regular, as well as  volunteer title. Both these ideas have  now been abandoned. Speaking for the  president, a cabinet ofliccr says:  "Why should general Otis he relieved  lieved unless he had some reason for asking to be sent back to tlie United States.  The president has had no reason to find  fault Avith liis Avork. li, is true he has  not ended the war but he has certainly  made progress and has shown himself  equal to every emergency. He has taken  good care'of the troops and has shown  himself capable of handling large bodies  of men. He has made known his general  plans of operations when the campaign  begins in the fall and the experts here,  together Avith the president, consider that  he has a thorough and practical program mapped out for his future Avork.  "To remove him now avou Id be an admission tliat he had failed. We can not  admit this, for certainly the ollicial dispatches from the Philippines sIioaa' a  material extension of our lines far beyond the points controlled by Spain. To  place a ne.Ar commander in control of the  troops and make him independent of  general Otis would cause no end of  friction. There can be but one entrusted  Avith plenary poAvers, and I can repeat  that the president is Avell satisfied to  trust general Otis Avith those powers."  ^  '<����_  **/  ��&*  THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 27,  1800.

France Has a New Sensation.  *  Paris, July 20.���The depression in  rentes, Avliich declined a quarter of a  point today, is attributed solely to the  action of the ministry yesterday in the  case of general De Negrier, by which M.

It is  hoped that the conventions Avill be fully  signed by Saturday. Sir Julian Pauuee-  fonte, head of the British delegation,  having demanded that the non-signatory  powers be entitled to adhere to the arbitration eoiiA'-eii-ion only by the unanimous consent of the signatory powers.

KOOTENAY MINES AND SMELTERS  Rapid Advance in Homestake Shares.  "Rosslani"), July 20.���The Homestake  mine is the sensation of the day in Rossland. The shares haA'e risen rapidly  from nearly zero to 12A cents. - It is said  that very high assays are causing the  advance. It is not yet known Avhether  any considerable body of ore has been  developed yet or not. The boom in  Homestake is Avatched A'ery eagerly for  the reason that it is a south belt mine  and if it justifies present anticipations  will rcA'ive interest in the south belt. The  Homestake Avas originally incorporated  by John M. Burke and lay for a long time  idle after the treasury gave out. Then  D. M. Linnard.took it over to London,  but liis efforts to float it there failed. On  his return the. company Avas reconstructed on an assessment basis, and de-  A'elopment Avork has been kept up steadily for about nine months. ;  THE LOCAL NEWS OF THE TOWN  CONCENTRATES.  The contracts for the construction of  the branch line to the North Star mine  from the main line of the CroAv's Nest  Pass have been let. Brecken ridge & Lund  will construct tliree miles of it, Grant, &  &. Shady r have a large slice, and the  C.P.R. a. ill construct the balance of it  themselves. The branch leaves the main  line tAvo miles east of Cranbrook.  How Bob  Wixon Went Broke.  A pretty good story is told of Bob  Wixon, avIio left Nelson two years ago for  ; Dawson. Bob is a hard worker when he  works and a great gambler when he  gambles. About a month ago he won  $1800 in DaAvson.and he and a companion  started to one of the transportation company's offices to purchase tickets to Skagway. When Hearing the ofiice, Bob remarked, "I'll go back and Avin the price  of the tickets." He went back to the  gambling house AA'here he had Avon the  $1800, and asked the dealer at a faro  table to take off the limit. The dealer  did so, and Bob Avas broke in fifteen minutes. ' .

The Cuban Butcher Rebuked.  Mauri ii, July 20.���The discussion of  the army bill in the senate today lead to  an exciting scene. General Weyler arguing against any reduction in the strength  of the army, Avarned the government that  the present situation made a revolution  highly probable, since it had never been  so easy for the army and the people to  make common cause. He himself had  never thought of heading a |rising, but it  must be confessed that'revolutions sometimes cleared the political atmosphere,  and accomplished the work' of regeneration. Senor Dato, minister of the interior, replying^scA'erely censured general  Weyler, declaring that a general avIio,  haA'ing 106,000 men, had failed to sup-  ��� press tlie Cuban rebellion, had 110 right  to make such threats, and that any attempt to make a revolution, no matter  by Avhom, Avould be prosecuted against  ���with the utmost rigor: of the law.; The  senators warmly applauded senator Dato's.  speech.

In the last issue of the Scientific American the ride of Murphy behind a, locomotive is treated editorially as furnishing  A'aluable suggestions in railroad engineering. Among the statements is one, based  on the theoretical figures, that a racing  man traveling one mile in one minute,  and displacing the air would have to  overcome a resistance of more that seven  horse power. Professor Denton, of the  Stevens institute of Technology, the article states, "testified one or two powerful  riders on the Webb Moating dynamometer, and found that an extremely, powerful man, by using his utmost effort,  could only exert for a. few seconds power  at the rate of 19,780 fout-pouuds of work  per minute, while another, in a, hill-  cliinbing contest, exerted 21,200 footpounds, or say two-thirds of a horsepower, but only for a fraction of a  minute."  1 By Order.  Recently a solar eclipse Avas visible in  Germany, and the colonel of a regiment  of infantry sent for all the sergeants and  said to them : "There Avill be an eclipse  of the sun tomorroAV���the regiment will  meet on tho parade ground in undress. 1  Avill come and explain the eclipse before  drill. If the sky is cloudy, the men will  meet in the drill-shed as usual." Whereupon the sergeants di-CAA' up the following  order of the day : Tomorrow morning, .by  order of the colonel,-there'Avill be an  eclipse of the sun. The regiment will assemble on the parade-ground, where the  colonel Avill come and superintend the  eclipse in person. If the sky is cloudy  the eclipse AA'ill take place in the drill-  shed. - ���       '  "Who's the Nixt."  . A small party of infantry Avere storming a stockade and had at last reached it.

It was really quite fortunate that a  medical man chanced along. There had  been an accident on a. suburban road. A  horse liad run away, the rig had been  smashed to smithereens and two women  had been injured to an unknown extent  and had been carried into the dining  room of the road, house near by. Tli i.  doctor had come that way just in time to  be of .assistance.  Of the two women, whom he found under the care of the landlord''- wife aud  the| waitresses, the elder, seemed to be  ���more pressingly in need of his services,  Avhile the younger struck him as being  more hysterical than anything else. In  the grave case he saw that there was  work to be done, at least two ribs to be  set and a collar bone, and the liklihood of  internal injuries. While the doctor was  at work on these fractures the other  woman Avas making quite a fuss. She  was able to sit up in a chair, and showed  no signs of injury beyond superficial  scratches and disarranged apparel. She  might, therefore, safely be left to the  ministrations of the waitresses, who  brought water and towels to remove the  dust and other signs of the mishap, and  set to work with pins and needle and  thread to repair the damage to clothing.

At the afternoon session J. A. Ferguson, missionary at Whitewater, Avas  itaken on trial for ordination. These  having been satisfactorily sustained,  arrangements for his ordination at  WhifeeAvater on August 1st Avere made.  SOLITARY  CONFINEMENT   IN  RUSSIA   .     . w  Ry Prince Krapolkin.  My first movement was to -approach  the window, whieh was placed so high  that I could hardly reach it'with my lifted hand. It Avas a broad, Ioav opening,  cut in a AArall five feet thick and protected  by an iron grating and a double iron  window frame. At a distance of a dozen  yards from this window I saw the outer  Avail of the fortress, a piece of masonry  of immense thickness, on the roof of  Avhieh I could make out a gray sentry  box. Only by looking upAvard could I  perceive a bit of the sky, which was now  faintly illuminated by the last rays of  the sun.  I made a minute inspection of the  room, AArhere I had uoav to spend no one  could say how many years. From the  position of the high chimney of the Mint  I guessed that I Avas iu the southwestern  corner of the fortress, in a bastion overlooking the Neva. This room of mine  AA'as a casement destined for a big gun  and the AvindoAV Avas an embrasure. Sun  rays might never penetrate it=;even in  :slfnlfeeM^  Iti  They,  therefore,   put  in   the   remaining  time, making  no attempt to score again,  and hoping   by that means to get out of  the city  without further  damage.    Just  as John and Fred Dowling were passing  out of the grounds, accompanied by their  sister, they were approached from behind  by Richardson,  witli Elliott  of the Athletics' home field.    Fred Avas felled to the  ground   by the  former and  rendered insensible at once,    lie avus then jumped  upon, hammered and kicked, outsiders, as  avoII   as Richardson, taking  part  in  the  brutal Avork.    The elder   brother escaped  serious  injury with  tho assistance  of a  policeman.    The younger Avas got into a  cab and couA'eyed to his hotel, Avhere under the   care of a   physician  he was restored to consciousness in about an hour.  Lacrosse   has never been   put down as a  harmless, healthful pastime, but the people of St. Catherines rather exceeded the  limit, if the above story is true.    It is a  matter that sliould call for a prompt and  thorough investigation by those avIio are  responsible for the Avelfare of lacrosse in  Canada.   "Where Do Drinkers Go To?"  The minister of-a certain parish near  Edinburgh AV-is taking a. Avalk one afternoon recently Avhen he diseoA'ered one of  his flock sitting by the Avayside in a state  of intoxication, while her burden lay in  the mud before her. "Oh ! -will1 ye help  me up Avi' my bundle?'-, said she to the  minister   as   he approached.    "Fie!   fie!  Janet," said he, "to see the like o' you in  such a plight. Do you knoAV Avhere all  drinkers go to?" "Help me up Avi' my  bundle, sir, an' I'll tell ye." "Well, Avell,"  said the clergyman, "I Avill. Noav answer  my question."

Hoav much longer the dialogue might  have continued it would be liard to siiiy,  But one of the AAraitrosses seemed to have  ah idea find nislied Out to the scene of the  bi'eak-down.

Fred    Hurry   has   sold    liis   dairy   to  I'Yaser & Co., and  Avill, in  a   short   time,  leave for .'Idaho, where he has purchased  a  stock   ranch.    Mr.   flurry  commenced  business in Nelsoii in .181)2 witli two cows  and lias managed to make a comfortable  fortune by attending strictly to business.  I fere is the way a business man sizes it  up:    "I paid the lAIiner close on to a liun-  'dred dollars for a write up in  its much-  advertised special  edition and I have not  received   one  quarter   the   benefit from  it that 1 have from an article tlmtappeared  in  Tiii_*Ti-ii-UNJ_  describing  the manufacturing industries of Nelson, for which  I did not pay a penny." p  George Tunstall, agent for the Hamilton Powder Company, leftvr yesterday  evening for a business trip over the  Crow's Nest Pass.  The members of the fire brigade had a  practice run last evening. An alarm was  turned in from the Lake View hotel and  live minutes later the extension ladder  had been run up in front of the hotel and  the nozzlemen were on the roof of the  building with the two streams of water  playing. Those who witnessed the test  were highly pleased 'with the way in  which the members of the department  handled themselves.  A. P. Macdonald, who has served as  purser on the steamer Alberta for the  past eighteen months, has decided to quit  stearaboating and go into business on his  oavu account. He lejwes tomorrow for  Moyie, Avhere he Avill open a general store.  A. 'Macdonald & Co. shipped ten tons  of goods yesterday to up the lake points  and along the Nelson & Fort Sheppard  raihvay.  The lacrosse team still want about $100  to coA'er the expenses of their trip to the  Coast, and a meeting Avas held last night  to discuss AA'ays and means. The suggestion of a moonlight excursion was  moved and condemned, and the meeting  finally decided upon a smoking concert,  which A\-ill be given next Tuesday evening. The place at jwhich it Avill be held  will be announced later on, and a 'varied  and attractive programme is assured.  Although it looked for a time as'if the  trip u of ��� the .Nelson ,. base ball team to  Grand.

DesBrisay &  Cos  CAMPERS', EXCURSIONISTS',  , AND PIC-NICERS'LIST  Forks have l-iiule" every arrangement for  the entertainment of tlie Nelson team, and  no effort Avill be spared on the part of  the local team to give the Grand Forks  people a lirst-class exhibition of ball in  return. The understanding is that a return match Avill be played in Nelson upon  a date to be mutually agreed upon.  li. Hopkins, foreman of the reverbera-  .tory furnaces at the Hall mines smelter,  was receiving the congratulations of his  friends yesterday upon the birth of a  daughter.  Born at Nelson yesterday, to the wife  of S. Nelson, a daughter.  Two Nelson citizens recently went into  the hills to visit a claim. They went in by  Nine-mile creek, and while camped there  a bunch of young cattle invaded the  camp. The cows devouroil most of their  provisions, and likewise cheAvcd portions  of the raiment of one of the party, destroying some valuable papers and money  iu the process. Anotlier party was  recently annoyed by the same band.  The transportation companies operating in Nelson report business as good.  On the lake the C. P. It. steamers are  fully employed in making the transfers  between the CroAv's Nest line at Kootenay  Landing and the Columbia. & Kootenay  branch at this city as Avell as in the  moving of supplies to the railway construction camps at the head of Kootenay  lake. On the railways there is a greater  A'olume of traffic coming in and going out  of Nelson than during any former period  in its history.

One team Avas  bought from Mclntyro of Bossburg and  the other tAvo are _NTorthport horses.
