Sunday in Canada.
To the Editor of the B. C. News.
Sir���If you look in the Kootenaian
of last week you will see two well writ-
ton, well punctuated aud well  quoted
articles that emanated trom the sanctum of that journal.    The articles referred    to  are    headed   "Sunday  in
Canada" and "Cosmopolitan Canada/'
A stranger would think thesi articles
were   written   by two persons, one an
American, who has a great antipathy
to anything Hritish, aud   the  other  a
liberal   minded  Canadian;   but   they
were not, tbey were both written by an
American.   In one article   he strikes
out from the  shoulder to vilify, sneer
at and belittle one of Canada's greatest
Institutions, namely, her observance of
the  Sabbath   Day.      He   pleads   tho
American  capitalists' and engineers'
cause very well in "Cosmopolitan Canada" when he says they  aro very welcome so as to exploit tho  resources of
the Province,  and   he   also  says  we
should welcome the "American editors
who come to LEND their talents" etc.
Do wc as Canadians want the loan of
his, or any other man's, brains  to call
our  ministers  and    priests   "shrine-
hunters" and "gospel acrobats?"   It is
a certainty he is not lending the use of
his brains, there are dollars coming to
him at the   end  of  every month, and
what for?   lie says "to the up-building
of Canada."   We all know that if  his
San Francisco Ideas of Sunday observance were carried  out, Canada would
not enjoy the quietness and rest that is
so much appreciated by all Canadians
and also by foreigners who spend tho
Sabbath with the "Lady of tho Snows

ln conversation with Mr. Brown a
few dafs ago he said: "Wo have commenced our new low level tunnel and
are installing the new machinery at

shall carry on operations as rapidly as
possible. The tunnel when driven

depth of 2,000 feet from the apex.
Stopeing upwards we shall have between 700 ahd 800 foet of backs before

We shall be able to stope longitudinally along the vein for about 2,000.
Trout Lake District.
, A comparatively new distrlot, em-
bracing the Flsh river and its branches,
has come into prominence through the
completion of the trail to Trout lake
abd active development is being pushed
on most of the claims. The rook formation is chiefly lime, slate, granite
and schist and the ores are silver-lead
with gold avid oopper. Nearly all the
leads opened so far have contained
gold and oopper In considerable quan
tities. The gold runs as high as 825
per ton and copper from 10 to 16 per
cent. The galena carries from 30 to
300 ounces silver and an average of 60
per cent. load. The main feature of
the district is the size and strength of
the leads, nearly all of which can be
traced for miles. Fish creek is tributary to thc Lardo and consequently any
developments there are interesting to

M> J. Barach, a mining engineer and
expert In the employ of tho owners of
the Silver Cup mine, left Trout Lake
City recently with a party of men to
ascertain the feasibility o' navigating
the lower Lardo river with a view of
taking their ore out to Kootenay lake.
A tramway will be built from the Silver Cup mino to Trout lake about ten
miles below Trout Lako City, whore
the ore will be transferred to a barge
and towed to the foot of the lake and
down the Lardo rivor���35 miles���
to Kootenay lake and towed from there
to Kaslo or somo other shipping point
on the lako. Several large log jams
obstruct the river now but the greatest
difficulty will probably be encountered
at the head where the channel will
havo to be dredged several feet.
The Old Comstock Lode.
"The Comstock's sun has nearly set,"
says the Reno, Nevada, Gazette, "and
when it is entirely hidden by the old
Mount Davidson one of the most wonderful towns and mining camps this
world has ever seen will go down with
it. ."Virginia City was a place of 20,000
Inhabitants a few years ago, and no
city ln -the land, big or little, enjoyed
more of the luxuries of life than did
Virginia. Twenty-dollar pieces were
more plentiful than nickels are today.
People gambled in stock with the same
freedom that thoy now play with the
babies. Only four whistles are now
left to sound the departing glory of a
once prosperous place. Con. Victoria
sold for over $900 In 1875 and now it is
selling for only 86 cents, aud is not
worth thai. Everything about the
place is taut going to decay, and the

St. Petersburg, August 2!i. By order
of Emperor Nicholas, Count Maravief,
the foreign minister, on tbe -ith inst.,
handed the foreign diplomat at St.
Petersburg, a note declaring that the
maintenance of peace and the reduction of tlie excessive armaments now
crushing all nations, is the ideal for
whicli all governments ought to strive.
The Czar considers the present moment
favorable for the inauguration of a
movement looking to this end and has
Invited the powers to take part in an
international conference as a means of
thus assuring a real and lasting peace
and terminating the progressive increase of armaments.
Text of the Note.
The text of the note Is as follows:
"The maintenance of general peace
and the possible reduction of the excessive armaments which weigh upon all
nations, present themselves in oxisting
conditions to the whole world towards
which the endeavors of all governments should be dirocted.*'
"International discussion is the most
effectual means of ensuring all peoples
benefit, a real durable peace, above all,
putting an end to the progressive development of the present armaments."
"Next, for the better guarantee of
peace that they have devoloped iu proportions hitherto unprecedented thoir
military forces, and still continue to
increase them, without shrinking from
afty sacrifice."
"Nevertheless, all tho efforts have
not'yet been able to bring about the

Masonic Documents of Value to Canada Pound in the Archives.
J. Ross Robertson, of Toronto, while
in F.ngland, examined some old Masonic documents concerning the early
history of the'craft in Canada. These
documents are in the archives of the
Grand Lodge of England, and its offices in Great Queen street, London, and
were discovered st.me weeks ago by
Henry Saddler, the sub-librarian of the

Believes the Conservatives Are Goinfl
Hack to Power.
Sir Charles Tupper recently addressed a mooting %f Liberal Conservative
erectors at.Cape Breton. Speaking of
the Quebec conference, he said that although he had arranged for an active
��'   s, ' ��� -
campaigning programme for  this session, he had considered the interests
ments, states that they relate to the !
first Provincial Grand Lodge oi Upper
Canada in 1792, and the first and most
important is the draft copy of the war-
runt of R. W. Bro. Jarvis, the first
provincial grand master, a document
tbat has led to a great deal of controversy from the fact that the original
has never been found, although written on vellum and in existence at about
1820. The package containing this
document was tied up with the orthodox red tape in April ,of 1792, and was
untiod for the first   time  in July, 1898.
The second paper of importance is a
return of the lodges from 1795-tj. This
return shows that Barton Lodge of
Hamilton was warranted as "No. 10,
held in the Township of Ancaster,
Home District," and that "No. 11,"
the lodge at tho Mohawk village, was
"held at the Mowhawk castle."
Another paper is a letter written in
1804 by Jermyn Patrick, of Lodge "No.
ti, Kingston." reciting the state of Masonry in Upper Canada, and a statement concerning friction that existed
between the Grand Lodge at York
(Toronto) ana the schismatic Grand
Lodge at Niagara.

All this talk about plebiscite recalls
the early days of the Northwest where
white and red men were under a pro
hibitive law. Those were the days ���
when a five gallon keg called forth festivities which are better imagined than
described,   but   the   boys were young
then and had to gain certain experiences along those lines. When there
was no keg on festive occasions the
toasts were drunk with tea. painkiller,
essence of ginger or other essences and
even red ink was drunk; the great song
then was "Tlie Riders of the Plains''
���a name given to the North West
Mounted Police. It had this chorus
and from many a shack has the refrain
gone up like the smoke on the still,
crisp, stariit night of winter:
"Then pass the tea and let us drink

In these days of straight lines it is

mo"o true grace in a collection of

the interminably long aristocratic
avenues of tho largo cities of the land.
It is this want of color that deadens
the otherwise beautiful scenery and
that unutterable solitude so characteristic of Northern scenery, mars the effect it might have if it could be seen
and folt that amid its primeval grandeur many live and move and have
their being.

Travel on the K. & S. would bo increased materially on Sundays if the

About 75 per cent, of the single fare

going on, affords a good illustration ol
tho enormous impetus given to travel
when low rates prevail, and gives unmistakable evidence of the profitable

There is it. the country n grent re
newnl of interest In the Nicaragua
canal, a bill for assisting In the construction of which is now before Congress with the expectation that lt will
be the most important subject to be
discussed by that body nt lis next session. There are some questions thnt
will add to the public Interest upon the
subject, like the retention of the Phil- j
ipplt.e islands, but the annexation of
I la wall is enough to make the project
nn Important nnd necessary one. it is
nearly half B century ngo that ths
Idea of constructing an Interoceanic
canal across Nicaragua was first publicly discussed, and since then four or
live surveys have been made to aseer
tain the best, route and an approximate
Idea as to the cost of the work. The
line that lias been most popular extend!'
from (Jreytowu, or some point near it,
through Nicaragua Lake to Brlto, on
the Pacific const. Finally a company
wns chartered by the I'nlted States to
construct the canal, nml necessary concession! were obtained from the Xlcnr-
uguun Government. The route adopted
wns to stnrl from Brlto. following the
Ulo (Jrnnde nnd the I.njns River to the
lake, a distance of seventeen and a hnlf
miles. In Ibis section tlie cannl was to
have n depth of thirty feet nnd a width.
at the bottom, of 128 feet. Through the
lake n Channel would hnve to be dredged, the distance from the mouth of the
Lnjas to Fort Ban Carlos on the eastern
shore being fifty-six nnd one-half miles.
Prom tlint point the Itlver Snn .luni)
would be followed for sixty-nine miles.
Two Important tributaries enter the
San .Imin, the San Carlos and the San
FranclSCO, nt a point called Ochnn. nnd
from that place n regular canal would
be commoted to Greytown. Tliere
hnve been Heverul estimates made as
to the cost of the work, varying from
$64000.000 to JU8.000.000, but It if
probable thnt .**l Iii.immi.ihki would Ih*
ample to complete It. The savings In
the dlsini.ee to our ocean commerce
would, by the use of this canal, be enormous. Ships bound from Snt. Fran-
elsco to New York would save about
s.iKKi miles In inking the cunnl distend
of going round Cnpe Horn. From England and European ports the saving of
distance would iw* l.mio or 2,000 miles
less. While ihe cost of ocean transportation Is not grent. the risks of navigation nre to be considered, while ths
time. Involving Interest charges or
shipments nud Insurance nre of grent
moment. .Judging from the most carefully compiled estimates, the revenuei
of the canal could not lie much If nny
less thnn $8,000,000 annually, which
would pay operating expenses and a remunerative dividend upon the money
Invested. The present bill authorizes
the Government to guarantee bonds of
the company to the anwnnt of $100,-
(MM), being amply secured ngninst any
loss by reason of such Indorsement.
Tbe war has lieen an object lesson to
the people of tbe country, and has removed nearly all the opposition tbat

Maddened by his grief, he threw his
scruples to the winds, and strained her
to his breast with a force that frightened her; she tore herself away and
stood panting in front of him. A heavy
footstep sounded on the flagstones outside, and a loud, cheery voice called
out, "Is Peter In, Missis?"
The pair stood looking at each other,
and, with a heartbroken sigh, Gurney
turned away and went .silently to his
At half-past 8 the two men left tbe
house for their day's work ln gloomy
alienee. A fierce hatred for bis chum,
nursed by the evil thought of a sleepless night, filled Peter's mind, leaving
no time for Idle talk. Come what
might he bad resolved In some way to
thrust hia chum out of tbe way.  "Sup
pose he tripped when parrying a
bucket of molten Iron?" whispered the
tempter; "it wouldn't be your fault.
Supposing you pushed him into the pit
of molten steel, who would suspect
you, his chum?"
With these thoughts rnclng through
his mind, Peter begun the afternoon's
work of shell casting. Groups of men,
each carrying a long Iron pole shenthed
at the end with wood, approached a
large furnace; a hole was knocked In
the end, nnd a small stream of molten
hissing steel flowed out, sending showers of sparks in the air. With a long
hook the foreman pushed Irou buckets
under the flowing rivulet of metnl;
ench one, when filled, wns slung by Its
cnrrlers on the pole, and was borne
shoulder-high to the shell molds and
there emptied. Peter and Dick started
at length with their load, with the latter tn front, and once more murderous
thoughts filled the former's mind. A
trip on his pnrt would send the molten
metal streaming over his chum's back.
and another accident would be added
to the long list, and���the girl he worshiped would be free.
Little did Dick Dart suspect how
many times Hint afternoon Azrael wltb
his flaming sword stood over against
him, or how many times the wretched
man behind hlm drew back from his
ghastly task.
At length the Rhells were all cast, and
Peter, with what strength of mind he
had, thanked God tlint his trial was
over, but as the men were leaving the
foreman said to the two friends: "I
wish you two would stop for a bit l)e-
slde the casting pit In the other shop.
We were late running the metal in, and
It must be rnked for at least an hour
before It  settles."
"All right, sir," Bald Dick, cheerily.
"Peter nnd I will stay, never fenr."
The workmen streamed out, leaving
the two men nnd the watchman the
only living beings In tl.e vast works.
Peter shivered as he followed his mate
to the great pit which radiated a burning heat on nil sides. With long Iron
rnkes they cleared the molten sea of
scum thnt dimmed Its glowing surfnee,
and watched the blue flames Hint flickered from time to time cu It. Although

Peter felt nu Icy coldness creep over

stood looking keenly at tl.e liquid mass
before him. He raised his rake to
thrust hlm headlong to an awful death,
but he was unable to move, for there
stood plainly, between hlm and his victim, the shadowy form of Dick's wife,
with hands uplifted. He flung down
his rake with n curse nnd came and
stood close to his friend, who wns
stretched out over the [ill gathering the

overcame him, Dick Dnrt wlll never

with a mighty effort hurled thc falling man buck, but lost his own balance
as he did so and fell with nn awful
cry Into the yawning death below hlm.
His scream of mortal agony rang
through the building ns he lay for an
Instant on the liquid fire. Then the
flames burst out around him and in a
few seconds not a trace of Peter Gurney remained.

llippant manner the old fashioned Sabbath that obtains on this side of the

manner what Science has to say in tho
matter and closes with a list of triumphal events that took place on Sun-
il.iy during tbe late war, after a well
directed sneer at religion and evory-

that wilh a rampant materialism on all
sides, let us hold fust to tbat which te
our forefathers   seemed    good,   and
which many an indifferent one recalls
as a memory of early childhood;
namely, the traditional day of rest and
contemplation, not of necessity within
the sanctuary, but yvherever it may
seem meet, and that the rising generation may be trained along those
lines of thought best calculated to
preserve that aspiration after guidance
from the Light that never fails,
"Lord of Hosts be with us yet,
Lest we forget!   Lest we  forget!''
Indications point to an early realization of tho Mieawber-likc attitude of
expectancy which has prevailed among
tho people of Kaslo for some time past
in this direction. The news we published in our last issue about thc Kootenay Railway and Navigation Co.
seems to be confirmed, The share list
for tho ��480,000 preference stock was
to have closed August 12th, so we may
expect to hear at a very early date
thai, the company financially is well
under way. With this commencement, will doubtless come that
of letting tho contract for the
Nelson & Bedlington branch aud such
further developments in connection
with the proposed Kaslo-Spokaue
route. Thore being the usual halo of
mystery surrounding the whole business at headquarters, wo shall doubtless not hoar of what is actually contemplated until it is well In hand.
Regarding the Kaslo & Slocan, the
rumor that it will be extended to New
Denver has been revived. The idea is
feasible and businesslike, and the fact
of having access to Slocan lake wlll
give the local company a largo territory to draw on for freight and a good
share of it,will, of necessity, come this
way. A spur up the South Fork will,
no doubt, be built noxt year.
Coming to the old giant, tho C.P.R.,
wo have of course the early completion
of tiie Crow's Nest Pass Uy. to tlie foot
of the lake in October and the subsequent building to Nolson, when we
may expect a better passenger service
to the east and coast than now obtains.
The extension of the Nakusp and Sandon branch to Whitewater is still
openly spoken of, and quite within the
early possibilities. In fact it is hardly
possible that tlie company will stop
there but come right into Kaslo, in
Whloh case direct travel over the
Crow's Nest for the main line would
pass through Kaslo, and place the city
in a more prominent position.
Matters in tho Lardo-Duncan district
are still in an embryonic state. It is
said that tho K. R. i N.C'o. are seeking
to get Into thu Trout laku and Lardeau
district!. The output of these coupled
with tho Lardo and Duncan would
seem to justify oarly construction.
The (.'. P, 11. plan in this direction
calls for a line from Ai't'owheod to
Trout lako and down the Lardo to
Kootenay lako, thus completing the
Kootonay railway routes us ut present
mapped out. There are other possibilities, such as a line from Pilot Bay
to Fort Steele, and another from the
main Hue to tap the White Grouse district, but these are contingent, it wlll
seem therefore that with theso above
lines becoming factors in the transportation problem of West Kootenay,
ICui-lo wiil bo immensely benefitted anil
everything possible should bo done by
the Board of Trade to seo that the city
obtains proper recognition as a prom-
Ineut point in the West Kootenay district.

Tho Kaslo News has changed hands
and ls now published by the News Publishing Company, of that city. In connection with the general announcements made, it states that do far aa
matters politically arc concerned, it
will give Its support to the "great
Liberal Conservative party." '"Possibly our contemporary will enlighten
us as to what constitutes thc Liberal
Conservative party."-���World, Vancouver.
We were under the impression that
the present Opposition constituted the
Liberal Conservative party and inasmuch as we referred to the policy bequeathed bv the late Sir John A.
Macdonald, we to ink we made ourselves quite cleat' in the matter.
We notice that a grand convention
of tho"Liberal Conservative party "Is to
be hold in Vancouver Sept. 1st and l!nd
and that Mr. Foster, in his spooeh at
Calgary said "all this country knew
just where the 'Liberal Conservative
party1 stood, they knew that the 'Liberal Conservative party' were for the
National Policy." We fear that thc
late election and tho advent of The
Province has been too much strain on
our contemporary.   Wo advise   a rost.
It Is a pity that no effort was mado
by the Liberal Conservatives in the
city to Induce tho Hon. G. K. Foster to
pay us a visit when he was in Nelson
a short time ago. A similar mistake
was made when the Governor-
General and Lady Aberdeen were in
tho district, although an invitation
was tardily sent to them at Vornon.
Kaslo would havo been benefitted if
thoy had come here. An apathetic indifference to these civilities seems to
have settled on the people and thore is
danger of dry rot setting In when this
"The tondoncy of civilization is away
from tho geological blunders of the
ancient Hebrews."���-Kootenaian.
The blunders are not with the people
of the past, they knew far more than
thoy have been credited with. They
are with the present age, whieh has
not yet learned that all sacred writings
wero written esotericully, the literal
in many cases boing mere nonsense.
The Czar's recent appeal for an international conference of the powers
on the question of disarmament, practically moans that tliere will bo no war
between Kngland and Russia���at least
for the present. There can bono question but that Queen Victoria is opposed to vvar and more particularly
with Russia, the Czarina being, it is
stated, her favorite grand daughter,
and whatever may be said to the contrary thesS personal Influences carry
enormous weight in diplomatic circles.
Tho Turner-Molndm affair has been
good material for tne coast papers.
Ordinary mortals will be thankful that
it is all ovor. The whole business
does not add lustre to Mr. Turner's
name and it is a pity that bis desire to
retain office helped him to make such
an exposure of his methods o( "fixing
things generally.'*
We want no more of this one man

The following changes in the British
Columbia mining laws should be carefully studied by those interested in
mining In this Province: /
First of these refers to the location
of fractions. In all fractions surveyed
from now on, Whether staked correctly
or not, the surveyor may adopt the
boundary lines of the surrounding
claims, provided no side exceeds l"i00
feet in length. In other words, the locator is entitled to tho vacant ground
that ho claims, even If he does not
stake it it, such a manner as to include
it all, whit li ho seldom does.
By a recent decision of the courts a
prospector loot a claim because of inability to secure tho post necessary to
murk* the location. Thc amendment
provides that in cases where claims are
slaked above the timber line, or thc
prospector can not secure tho noces-
sary posts, he may erect monuments of
earth or stone.
In staking an extension the posts arc
often planted so as to form a wodge-
shapo fraction between two ends of the
two claims, 'these fractions have often incurred great expense, not only in
recording and surveying, but in cases
where they carry the load, and thus be-
oome of such value as to promote litigation. Tho amended act authorizes
tlie surveyor to include.sueh fraction,
provided It does not cover more than
ol.(ii) acres, the area of a full claim,
and provided further that two location
posts are together.
By falluro to record assessment work
within thu required period of one year,
either thrnugh'oversight or the nii��-
underBtandlng of partnership interests,
valuable claims have been lost. Now,
if a prospector fails to record the work
within a year, he has BO days' additional time in wliich to make the record by
payment of an extra $10, provided that
tho work.is done within the year.
Another change regarding tho assessment work is in that particular
whloh called for work to tho amount of
1100 each years Now, a miner can do
and record as many assessments as he
pleases in a year by paying the recording fee lor each assessment dono to the
extent, of $100.
ln ease anybody should adverse an
application for a certificate of improvement and crown grant, the contestant
must have his claim surveyed immediately and file a plan made and signed
by an authorized provincial lund surveyor with tho writ.
To obtain a crown grant in lSllii it
was uecessary to do assessment work to
the amount of 1500   and   to   havo  the i
lim surveyed. Which meant another!
18100. In 1WI7 the act was amended so
as to provide Hint upjo May 1, !8D8,the
cost of such survey should count, as
work done on tbe claim, not to exceed
$100. In plain English, it counted as
an assessment and as work toward the
crown grant. A survey generally costs
$100. The last legislature extends tbo
lime to .May 1, 1890.
Hereafter, in advorse proceedings in j
connection with the  title  to  mineral \
lalms, before any court, each party to
the proceedings shall   give affirmative
videuce of title.   Heretofore the burd- j
en of proof was on the contestant.
Tho  feo  for   recording  assessment
work has been reduced from   $2.75 to ;
$2.50.  Heretofore tho feo for recording
assessments has been 25 cents higher
than other fees.
Anybody who pulls down a legal post |
oi-cctcd to mark a boundary or location
of a mineral claim, or any writing by
law requirod to bo thereon, is liable to
imprisonment for six months or a lino
of $250, or both. This is supposed to
be directed particularly townrd pre-!
venting the use of old posts by people
who restako a claim and sometimes destroy evidences of a prior location.

Friday was occupied by an excursion
on Coeur d'Alene lake and a sumptuous
luncheon in a grove on Coeur d'Alene
river. During the trip N. W. Durham, editor of the Spokesman-Review, made a
telling address on "Popular Misconceptions About the Press," pointedly treating
of questions whicli confronted every
owner and publisher of a newspaper. He
sa id:
The public has a notion that the editor
should know everything, but does not
know anything. Every newspaper man
knows much he is never given credit for
knowing. Of chief importance in his art
is tlie knack of knowing what not to
print. If the newspapers of Spokane should
publish some summer morning all the
shocking facts and secrets they had gathered in a single day, there would be trouble the next morning on tlie raging Spokane. There would be heard what Bret
Hart has styled the "petulant pop of the
Another mistaken notion is tlint Horace
Greeley was the only great American
journalist; that since his forceful hand
and great brain ceased to direct the New
York Tribune, the newspaper Held has suffered irreparable loss. If you will take the
pains tn lind nnd examine a copy of the
New York Tribune of 30 years ago, you
will be impressed with tlie vast advance
made In the American daily newspaper
since Greeley died. The New York Tribune of .'ill years ago would not stand up
with daily papers printed now in cities of
50,000 population or less. The Tribune
was loosely edited, poky in its news service, annoyingly opinionated, and lacked
snap and enterprise. Horace was an able
mail, and he was smart. lie knew when
to die.
Another popular delusion is that the
newspaper worker has an easy and pleasing task: that, like the gilded youth of
Athens, his only concern is to learn and
tell the truth. 'This popular conception is a long cry from the
truth. The work of writing for
and editing the modern daily paper has

houses in the place. And if lie is not

paper iu a town which could not give
decent support to one.
For these unsatisfactory conditions the
fraternity lias itself to blame. Vou can
not change human nature. It is pretty
much the same in every town. Free service from newspapers the public lias had
so long that it has come to a belief that
the town or the county has a proprietary
interest in them. lt plays one paper
against another, and too often rival editors or publishers lend themselves with
eager spirit to the game, giving away
much of their valuable space, cutting
their subscription rates to a price whicli
hardly meets the bare cost of white paper,

rates whicli are preposterously low and

to remove his headquarters Immediately
to the town of Mnnolos, province of Bal-
ncan, 20 miles north of Manila. There he
will shortly assemble a congress chosen
from the leading Filipinos who favor the
Insurgent cause. He further Intends to
send a representative to Paris to argue
his claims for the establishment of nn Insurgent republic. Manolos Is au excellent
strategic point, covering a rice and tobacco district, beside thc route to Blacna-
bato, where the Spaniards were formerly
obliged to make a treaty by which they
purchased a suspension of hostilities.
The movement was probably necessary,
partly because Agulnaldo wus fast losing
his influence in the province of Cavite,
where the Insurgents evidently expected
lo be permitted to occupy Manila conjointly wilh the Americans. Considerable dissatisfaction ls upparent among the
Insurgent troops and a frank expression
of opinion Is frequently heard that Agulnaldo ls again selling the cause.
Hlota In Hainan  Inland.
New York, Aug. 2(i.���A special dispatch
from Hong Kong says:
A serious insurrection has broken out
at Xiul.iu in tlie interior of Hainan island. The American missionaries and native converts have sought refuge in safe I
territory. Ou August 14 the rebels fought
the soldiers, who used the American Presbyterian property as defenses aud repelled
the attack.
Nadao is 00 miles from Hoisow, one of
the richest valleys in thc island. Unless
the revolt is speedily suppressed the insurgents will be probably reinforced by
refugees from Kwang Si, where the. officials are coping with the recent rebellion. Should it not be suppressed there
is an opportunity for French interference.
The French are using vigorous measures
to protect tho native Christians near
Kwang Chow.Wan, nnd arc extending
their influence in southern China, which
at present is very disturbed.
