ANSWERED
China's Appeal to America
Will  Probably Be
Rejected.
(HV ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
Washington, Aug. 81.���The American reply to China's latest appeal for a
cessation of hostilities,received yesterday today from l.i Hung Chang,has out
yet heen made known ami it is likely
that the matter will be one of the
main subjects of consideration at the
Cabinet meeting today. Hut there is
reason to believe that the overtures
will iu effect he rejected on the
ground that the conditions laid down
in the American note of August 13th
have not beeu complied witli and that
until they are compiled with, the Government's course must proceed without
reference to China's appeal for a halt
in tlie proceedings.
The despatch of August IS said specifically that the United States was
ready to enter into un agreement be-
tweon the Powers and the Chinese
Government for a cessation of hostilities on tlie Condition   that   the   relief
forces should be permitted "to enter
Pekin unmolested" and escort the Le-
gationers therefrom under such circumstances us the commanding general might lay down,
Hut up to the present time there is
uo evidence that the allied forces ure
unmolested at Pekin or have received
the aauctiou of the Imperial Government to convey the Legatinners to Tien
Tsia without further trouble and
nnder the conditions laid down hy the
commanding general, tin the contrary
all of the despatches Indicate Unit the
Allies are meeting stubborn resistance
and there is un entire lack of compliance with the condition laid down
by the United States In its despatch
of August ltlth.
As stated, however, the Government bus giveu no authoritative Statement of its purpose towards China's
application of today and there is still
a slight chance that a complete compliance wilh the demands of August
12th may be announced In the Pekin
within the Imperial palace and they
were surrounded there with the
Japanese military headquarters located in the Japanese Legation.
Admiral Remey also transmitted an
authentle report from l'ekin on the
ISth saying that "troops are moving
un the Imperial city." The several
despatches from different sources establish clearly that the Imperial palace anil grounds are under siege. Hut
not one of the despatches is clear as
to how late this condition of affairs
existed. The Fowler despatch is the
latest to arrive and is dated the 20th
but probably that is the date on which
it left Tien Tsin. The Japanese despatch also refers to the Chinese taking refuge in the Imperial palace on
the 15th but does not bring the situation luiyuiul that date, so that the lust
Information, while showing the imperial elty BUrrounded, does not dis-
olose the issue of the situation, nor
how lung it has continued. Yesterday's despatches seem to make clear
that the Emperor and Knipress Dowager have made their escape from l'ekin and that about the only present ser-
viee of the Imperial palace and grounds
is as an asylum ill which the dciuoral-
i/.ed ChinesesoldlerBare makingalast
stand.
WILL RESPECT RULERS.
The Japanese Legation's advices
today show that the banners of the
Imperial cortoge were seen leaving
l'ekin on the I Ith and that probably
the Empress Duwager as well as the
Emperor had left the city. Consul
(leneral Goodnow advised Ihe State
Department that he had Information
from Chinese suiirces that the Empress
Dowager had left  l'ekin.
The attitude which the international forces will observe toward the Emperor andJSmpreSB Duwager is understood tu have received official consideration among the Powers, result ing
from a request liy the southern viceroys that no personal indignity be
shown tu China's rulers. In response
to this it is generally understood that
there will he no personal indignity to
the Emperor and Knipress Dowager,
nut because it is felt thut there is any
special consideration due them, but
because   China   would he precipitated
despatches before the final determine- I lnt0 . ull!u)Ul. 8tttte if tlle responsible
tion on the reply is made. Hut thi
disposition tonight is clearly in the
line Indicated.
NO TERMS PROPOSED.
China's latest application for peace
negotiations was received early in the
day at the Chinese Legation and wus
transmitted by Mr. Wu to the State
Department.      Acting  Secretary   of
Slate Adoe wont over the subject with
Hie President, The Chinese Envoy
proposed no terms an to the withdrawal uf troops and made no other
suggestion as to what wus to come
before the commission, his sule
anxiety being to secure the cessation
of hostilities. The application is
understood to have been made to the
Powers in the hope that if each would
name a commissioner there would be
a general euuncil uf peace between Li
Hung Chang un the one hand, and the
several representatives of the Nations
on the other side.
WILL WAIT ON THE POWERS.
Aside from the fact that the conditions of Aug. 12th hnve nut been compiled with by China, it is probable
that the United States (iovernment
would desire to take sufficient time to
learn what the other Powers intend
doing on the line us all are acting in
unison. Moreover, there are some
unexplained features uf Li Hung
Chang's application. o.ne of them being that while be asks the Allies to
cease hostilities he gives no assurani
that he has the power to make the
Chinese army and tbe rebellious
Hoxers cease the hostilities. The
situation   at   Pekin  was   made   moM
heads of the Empire lost their functions.
In view of the general desire uf this
Government and the others concerned
to keep China intact und to speedily
restore quiet, the disposition among
ollieials is toward refraining from any
personal indignities to the Chinese
rulers and it develops in this connection that all of the Powers recently rejected the proposition uf the Consuls
at Tien Tsin tu destroy the tombs Of ihe
Ming dynasty. The proposed destruction was a threat held out tu the Chinese in the hope of bringing them tu
terms. Hut the Powers rejected the
proposal and thus gave evidence   that
anything calculated to give personal
affront or indignities tu the Chinese
was not a part uf the present campaign,

HIS TWELFTH.
Mr. Turner has been fourteen years
a member ol thc Legislature, and the
other day be delivered his twelfth
budget speech. Which means that for
twelve of the fourteen years he lias
been Minister of Finance in the Governments of British Columbia. That
is :i rare kind of a record, and une
that speaks well for the gentleman
named. If be were not a safe and
capable financier, the various Governments of the pnst fourteen years
would not, have insisted on liis retaining that special portfolio. In preparing his twelfth budget he was obliged
to face some difficulties created during what he designated the Interregnum of the past two years. It was
perhaps mure a nightmare than an interregnum, especially that period of
it which enjoyed the very dubious
honor of Mr. Martin's Premiership.
Throughout it all, however, there was
very serious sacrifice of public Interest
to factional jealousies und ambitions,
the result nf which is that the present
Finance Minister has to provide for
much neglect and many deficiencies.
The publio service Buffered,and.to pull
it together and re-establish it on a
healthy, flourishing basis Mr. Turner
is under the necessity of furnishing
estimates which ln the final balance
show a deficit of nearly half a million.
The steady growth of the public
revenue is gratifying evidence ofthe
not less steady growth of the industrial and commercial development of
the Province. The estimated revenue
for the current fiscal year is nearly a
quarter of a million greater than that
of 1800-1000. There is a must cheering assurance in the knowledge of this
fact. The country is prospering. It
is growing In population and ln volume of llusiness. Hence the increase
of the revenue: but satisfactory as
thnt is. it is not great enough to
meet the demands upon it that for the
time have been swelled by the reckless and Inefficient administration of
the two preceding Governments. Mr.
Turner is not only a capable Fin
aiu'c Minister', he is also a hold one
and he resolves at once to face the situation and provide against the Short
coinings of his predecessors by ex
penditures that will bring the public
service up to the old standard of enl-
clcncy. Thai is gund policy, and it
will he so regarded by the people generally.
To enable him to do this it becomes
necessary to levy some new taxes and
increase snuie old noes. A new tax is
that nn coal, of which wc had intimation iu advance through the medium
of the Speech from the Throne. Aii
old one increased is the tax un mineral
output.     We arc told   by the Minister
that this is not Intended to affect the
smiillcr mines, an assurance for which
the owners of these smaller mines
will doubtless feel duly grateful. Thc
larger mines are expected to hear the
additional burden without a murmur.
There is righteousness In discriminating between a large Income and a
small one when louking about for
somothlng to tax; but this and all
other Governments ln liritish Columbia Bhould keep in mind that milling
is and will be the chief industry uf
the Province, that it is endowed with
n peculiarly sensitive nature, and that
in the public interest it is not desirable to do anything to discourage it.
It is quite proper, of course, that it
should bear its due share of taxation;
but any tax has a tendency to discourage capital, and without capital
the industry is bound to languish, It
can hardly be said of mining yet that
it is the goose that lays the golden
egg: but ii u coming to that, aud it
will be pour policy to kill the goose,
vailed was due entirely to the disturbed conditions produced by the sudden and unexpected Introduction of
tlie Eight-Hour law. The. people
here never thought of attributing it
to trilling temporary reverses iu South
Africa. That was left to the superior
penetration and Judgment of tlle lion.
member for Hosslaud, who can see
into the bowels of mountains and can
trace with equal mental facility either
the weasel or whale in every Heeling
cloud.
It is expected that In the supplementary estimates there will be a sum
for the erection of a new Government
House, in place of the old one destroyed by tire. It is known that
Lieutenant-Governors hnve expressed
the opinion that Qovernment Houses
are a mistake. At any Capital there
are houses fur rent that are quite good
enough and commodious enough for
all necessary legitimate purposes.
Government Houses are great incentives to extravagance, which often
runs to unreasonable lengths, to the
embarrassment of the unfortunate occupants.   ^^^
Says The Victoria Colonist: "We
seem to have reached 'an era of good
feeling' in liritish Columbia politics. Much of this is due to the desire of the people to shake themselves
clear of old issues and start fresh, and
not a little to the excellent impression
which Mr. Dunsmuir bus made upon
every one with whom he has come in
contract in his capacity as Premier
When Mr. Dunsmuir decided to accept
the position he said that he recognised his lack of experience in public
matters, but added that he at least
knew how to do what seemed to be
right. This is the key-note of his administration, and it is winning
friends every day."
The proposed tax on pack trains
would not be more vexatious tbau
many other tuxes that are now levied,
but that docs not establish the wisdom of it. If there iB reason in taxing a pack train, so there would be in
requiring a Provincial license for
every delivery wagon employed by
our merchants, for every dray and
cub, for every wheelbarrow in use
tlle Province, fur every cow, pig or
sheep, every fishing bout on the
Fraser, uud every stone-boat on tbe
farms. There is probably not too
much taxation in Hritish Columbia,
but there are tun many varieties of it.
The entire system needs revision. It
should be revised out of existence
root and branch,,and something nion
rational, something less petty and
vexations, adupted in its stead. Tlle
tax nn puck trains would simply be
an addition tn the miiltitudinnus burdens already heaped ull thc mining in
dustry. and for that reason alone ii
sn objectionable that nothing mori
should be heard uf it.

OFFICER'S  REPORT,
Annual Report of Medical Health Officer Contains Many Valuable suggestions.
At the  Council meeting  lust   night
Dr.   I.alinu.   Medical   Health   Ollicer,
presented his animal report I" the
Council.    It   was   a   lengthy one   and
went throughly Into his work for the
past year and also contained many excellent suggestions for the Improvement of the  sanitary condition of the
City.
In referring to  the small pox   scare
last winter, he  pointed out  the difli-
culty   met   with in properly   treating
the patient and  recommended  a  new
and   properly   constructed    detention
hospital, nearer the General Hospital,
und the employment of a nurse skilled
in the treatment of infectious diseases.
He commented upon the decrease in
typhoid fever cases and attributed the
decrease  to the Improvement   In the
water  supply  and  sewerage  system,
lie recommended  further extension of
the sewers  and  advised   the   City to
carry water mains to all  dairies   that
relied  upon  surface water for   their
supply.
ln regard to complaints from thc
steamboat ollieials us to drainage Into
the hike he advised that the officers of
all steamboats culling in the port of
Nelson be notified as to the points
where the sewers emptied, and that
signs be painted and placed on the
lake shore Indicating the location of
the   sewer   and the   extreme   point of
backwater.
The report recommended that tl
Italians whose shacks were found to
be in such a filthy condition should
be compelled to vacate unless the
owners put in sewerage.
A recommendation wus made that
the creek emptying Into thc lake by
C. K. Tackabury'B residence should
be confined to a straight ditch through
the Hume addition und to a covered
ditch from the point where it enters
the City to tlle shore, and piped from
