says a battle Is expected Sunday with

The Russia* aud French oontlngents
according to this despatch are guarding the communications of the Americans, the British and Japanese, who
form the advance columns.
A despatch dated at Tien Tsin. Friday, July 27th, says another despatch
from Pekin of July 21st, has been received duplicating in part the one
sent by another route, but adding tho
information that the British, American, Russian and German Legations
held on July 21 provisions barely sufficient for 14 days and thc ammunition was short. The Ministers had
again refused the proposal of the Chinese (Iovernment that they leave Pekin
under escort of Chinese troops.

3, say the ferocious l.i Ping Hong,
former Governor of Shan Tung, has
arrived at Pekin with a large following of troops. On tbe march be killed two French priests and many hundred converts. Ll Hung Chang is alleged to have sent a message to l'ekin

Chinese before them.
Washington, Aug. 4.���It was stated
last night that the dispatch received
by the War Department from Major
(Ienernl Chaffs commanding the
American troops in China was dated
at Tien Tsin on thc 31st of July. At
thc time it was filed there had been

buildings have escaped and it seems
probable will uot now be reached.
The flames have reached up Wild
Horse Creek as far ns the bridge
where tbe wagon road to the Ymir
mine ci'osscH, and are now encroaching
upon the thick timber whieh lies on
tbe other side of the creek. The cabin
and buildings at the Snowsllde mine
are surrounded by lire although untouched up to the present.
Thc distance from this end of the
tire to the Ymir mine is about a mile
and a half through thick timber, and
if tbe wind continues high it will
necessitate a brave fight if the mill
buildings are to be saved. A gang of
men are hard at work clearing iiway
around the mill. In order to provide
against tlie possibility of communication being cut between the mill and
the town the local teams were busily
engaged all last night hauling up supplies to last for a full month.
The fire to the north of the town
seems to have died down considerably.
Chas. Dundee has just returned and
reports that tbe Dundee mill is entirely consumed by the fire. The
flames have seemingly passed leaving
the town of Ymir unscathed, The chief
danger now lies in Wild Horse Creek,
which is thickly timbered and
generally swept by a strong breeze.
The Haines are now progressing rapidly up tlie creek towards tbe Ymir mill
where large gangs of men are clearing
the surrounding ground.
It is reported that the Dundee mill
is   insured   for   $11.00(1.
The Assailant of tho Prlnco of Walos Has Escaped From Belgium.
Brussels, Aug. I. ��� In reply lo the
note of the liritish (Iovernment expressing regret that the proceedings
against Sipido. thc assailant of the
Prince of Wales, should   have such an
utterly Inadequate ending, the Belgian 'loveinment says tbat :>s tt strict
observer of the laws, il was unable to
violate them, however strong its desire to proceed vigorously against the
culprit. According to the Belgian
law, Sipido had three days to appeal
to the court of cassation. Living
with his parents he bad legal domicile, and therefore he could not be
arrested for three days, lie profited
by the delay to take flight. The Belgian Qovernment says it regrets tlie
incident, but cannot be held responsible for it.
New York, Aug. 4.���Seven American missionaries from l'ekin witb
their families have arrived here, says
a special to the Journal and Adver-'
tlser from Troitkswask, Transhnikali,
Siberia. They escaped from l'ekin
and were chased across the sand
mountains of the gold desert for four
hundred miles, suffering fearful tortures from the hot sand, exposure and
lack of food and water.
The Russian (iovernor of Transbai-
kall, probably notified by the telegraph company, sent out BOO Cossacks,
who galloped south 4(H) miles into the
desert and rescued them. The cavalry
gave them food and shelter and
brought them here, where they are
receiving care at the hands of thc authorities. Thousands of Christians
have been massacred, they report, and
thousands more will die at the hands
of the Boxers unless the Powers send
large re-iuforccments.
Cape Town, Aug. I.���Lcibhcrg's
commando attacked (leneral Smith-
Dorien near l'otehfstrooni. but was

Because 25 Men Are Laid Off at Winnipeg and
Fort William 500 Quit Work.
Winnipeg,Aug. 4.���The machinists,
boiler makers and litters employed by
the C. I'. R. in shops at Winnipeg.
Fort William and other divisional |
points west to the Pacific coast went
out on a strike this morning to the
number of about 500.
On Tuesday last about 2- men were
discharged by the company owing to,
the offloials explained, the present
prospect of hard times and the small
amount of work that would naturally
follow with the reduction in traffic.
The officials pointed ont that with
only half a crop in the Province there
woi^lo i. . onlj half the freight ship
ments and following this shortage
there would be a corresponding falling off in the Imports, in fact they
claimed that the latter was already
Against this the men's case as presented is as follows: "At a meeting
held Wednesday night of a committee
of boiler makers, machinists, blacksmiths and allied mechanics, it was
resolved that the reduction of the
staff was a direct blow hy the company against the union under false
pretences of a decrease in business;
that the company ignored whatever
overtures were made to them regarding better conditions j in the reduction
of Btaff, the company practically aimed at the active members of the union :
that preference was given to non-union
men; that efficiency anil length of
service was totally ignored." These
resolutions were endorsed by each of
the unions and it was on these
grounds that the strike was declared.

Scores McTavlsh Who Made Charges Against
Gold Commissioner Senkler.
Ottawa, Aug. I.���Judge Dugas has
made his report to the Minister of the
Interior ln regard to the charges
which li. McTavlsh brought against
Gold Commissioner Senkler. The
judge says that when McTavlsh was
himself examined under oath by
his evidence it was found that although in his letter he preteuded to
speak about facts iu whieh he was
personally cognizant, yet he had to
declare that be based this accusation
only upon hearsay. The names of the
parties from whom he pretended to
have obtained such Information were
given and everyone of them who could
be found in the territory was brought
and examined, with the result tbat
McTavlsh was in all points contradicted by tbem. and no proof could lie adduced connecting Senkler, or any employee in anyway with ?ny of the
frauds complained of, which frauds
b".. been perpetrated by miners and
private individuals and not by ofll-
cials.  After the fourth or fifth sitting
McTavlsh  disappeared and could be
found nowhere in the territory.
Mr. Woodworth continued to represent him to the end and finally declared that he had to admit that nothing
hud been proven against Mr. Senkler
or anybody else connected with his office. The result of the investigation,
therefore, is that McTavish by his letter has made a false, dishonest and
baseless accusation which in no way
has been sustained, either against
Mr. Senkler or   anybody   under   hi,,,.
A Minister Cave Damaging Evidence Against
Young sifton Yesterday.
London, (Int., Aug. 4���The must
sensational development at the Sifton
murder investigation wus the statement by Uev. VV. A. Cooper, a Methodist minister at Arva. to the effect
that Herald Sifton, the prisoner had
told him the day after his father's
death tbat Dr. McNeill, coroner for
the district, had abstained from holding an Inquest on the condition that
he should receive a thousand dollars
nnd that (lerald Sifton had given him
notes for tbat amount.
Siftoli's reasons,as he hail explained
to Mr. Cooper, for paying the money,
were that he wanted to avoid any
scandal that would be caused by holding the Inquest after arrange,no,its
for the funeral had been made.
This evidence was given nominally
in thu interests of the Crown bul the
Counsel for the defence did not cross-
examine him The probable line of
defence will be to argue some kind of
conspiracy existing among a number
of crown witnesses lo squeeze money
out of Sifton by prefer, ing a charge
of murder. The esc adjourned till
Thursday next when it    is   Uudersl I
that Inspector Murray will offer  f,,,-

Nelson Daily Miner
D, J.  BEATON,  Editor and   Manager
of  th.
Tlie seen,id   annual   session
Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern
British Columbia came to a close yesterday evening.    There were two days
of it filled with matters of great  concern, which were   made   tbe   subjects
of nearly two score resolutions.    Now
that the labors of  the   Congress   have
heen   completed   and   those   engaged
have had time to take in all that   was
done, they may possibly   realise   that
more was undertaken  than   tbe   brief
time at their disposal   would   justify.
These Congresses are capable of great
usefulness, but they can only  be   useful by inspiring public  confidence   in
the intelligence and deliberation with
which   they   are    conducted.     There
were subjects enough dealt with   during the two days of   the   recent   Congress to keep an average   deliberative
Assembly engaged for a week.    We do
not say that conclusions   were   inconsiderately   reached,   because    for  the
most part the subjects discussed   were
familiar to the. minds of the members
of the various   Hoards; but   from   the
point of view of thc public it can fairly be said that if there   were   greater
deliberation there   would   be   greater
confidence, and the measure of public
confidence is exactly the  measure  of
tbeir usefulness.    We do not hold that
any strong exception will be taken  to
any of the resolutions passed,   for we
believe they were all in the public interest and will be so regarded generally.    The Influence   of   the   Associated
Boards, however, is   chiefly   of   value
because of the   effect  their  judgment
will have on tbe Governments to whom
appeal   is   necessarily   made   to   give
force to it.     It is desirable those Governments shall not be given   tbe   impression that there has been too hasty
claim to recognition will be duly considered.    Tins, above  every   place  in
the Province, is tho proper   place   for
the establishment of a normal school,
and here it  was   that  Col. Haker proposed tbat it should   be   located."    11
will be interesting In this connection to
repeal a resolution passed at the recent
session of   the   Associated   Hoards   of
Trade  of   Eastern   liritish   Columbia:
"Resolved: That owing to  the great
numbers of teachers now being employed iu   our public schools and the ever
increasing   demand   for more   as new
schools and districts are being opened
up. we recognise the need of training
schools,    therefore     be   it    resolved:
that     this      Association     urge     upon   tbe   Provincial    (Iovernment  the
necessity of   a   normal   school being
established   for   the   purpose of   furthering this  important   work   of   our
Province, and in considering tbe convenience  of   the   several   districts   of
the Province we   suggest that the   locality of   such   institution   he   established at Kamloops.   this point   being
near the centre of  the   Province   and
Convenient   to all   points."    The   desire is one case is purely a Bel fish one,
and in the   other is inspired   by a   regard   for   thc     public    convenience.
Which ought to prevail'.'

A clerical partisan has been saying
in an interview that he has had a
good deal of correspondence with Mr,
Muloc- in connection with the Yukon
postal service and linds hiin quite
willing "to meet more than half way
the needs and wishes of the Yukon
people." Tbat is very kind of Mr,
M ulock, but what this country
needs is a Post-Master-General who
is willing to go all the way to
meet the needs of thc people.
It is 'allowed us to say this much
from the standpoint of the public of
Yale, Cariboo, and tbe Kootenays.
Those who were privileged to view
the proceedings at close range are
aware that the members of the Congress had a much better grasp of tbe
business done than the disposal
of so many subjects in so brief a time
would naturally suggest. The gentlemen who Comprised the meeting knew
what they were about, and the baste
was more in appearance than in reality. When, therefore, to mention
one matter as an example, the tiovernment at Victoria are assured that
they have the support of the Associated Boards iu determining to appoint
a commission to inquire into the
workings of the various mining laws.
they may rest content in tlie belief
that it represents the approval of the
solid business sense of the community. An inquiry does not necessarily
Involve revolution, or even drastic
changes in the laws themselves. It
may be thnt those laws are fairly satisfactory ns they stand, but it is certain that the politicians at Victoria
would be the better of some authoritative knowledge as to tbeir general
bearing on the industry affected. The
retiring president. Mr. Eraser,
pressed satisfaction at tbe notice lo
appoint a commission, but doubted
whether any radical change would be
advisable at the present time. Thnt
is probably the sense of tbe com,mini
ty at large, but we are supposed to
lie a people of reason and com,no,
sense, and the Legislature is therefore expected to make any changes tbe
inquiry may disclose as necessary,
There should be no hesitation in lop-
ping oft* any law or feature ofa law
that in doing harm to the mining in-
dustry of this Province.

Canadian  Boat Wins the  First of tho Serlos
of Cup Races.
Montreal, Aug. 1.��� The first of the
Bcries of International yacht races for
the Seawanahaka Cup between Minnesota, of the White Hear Club of St.
Paul, and Ked Coat of the Royal St.
Lawrence Club, was sailed on Lake St.
Louis yesterday afternoon and resulted
in easy victory for the Canadian boat.
The course was a trlangular.one and
one third mile, each leg three times
around making twelve miles. Red
Coat won by six minutes and twenty-
one seconds in time, and nearly one
leg or considerably over a mile in distance.
The wind was what might be called
a full sail breeze and there was little
or no sea. The crews were, as follows:
Ked Coat���(I. Herriek Duggan. tiller;
.V. Aligns, main sheet: 0. limit, midship; F. Sherwood, jib. Minnesota:
C. M. Griggs, tiller; J. I.. Wann.mai,,
sheet; F. E. Douglas, midship: Sam
Hun, jib. The lirst leg of the triangle
was a beat to windward and it was at
this work tbe Canadian boat excelled
for at the buoy she had gained fifty
seconds. The second leg was a broad
reach at whieh Minnesota did better,
reducing the lead by IB seconds, there
was only one leg out of nine in which
she gained, with the _ exception
of the last when skipper Duggan
had thc race well in hand. The
third leg was also a broad reach.
but Minnesota lost '.'-' seconds on it.
(In the second beat to windward Minnesota took in a reef and Ked Coat
substituted a small jib as the wind
had freshened somewhat. But rounding the buoy for the reach Ked Coat
replaced a large jib while Minnesota
carried a reef half way ll,rough that
reach before letting It out. From
then out Ked (.'oat increased her lead,
completing the second round "> minutes,
if, seoonds ahead and finishing the
race 6 minutes and 21 seconds ahead.
Theonly chance for Minnesota seems
to be in a drifting match. Tbe time
was: Ked Coat, start 1.80:80, finish
-.13:58, elapsed 1.44:48. Minnesota,
start 1.20:10, finish 8.80:18, elapsed
1.51:29. Bed Coat won by six minutes
and 21 seconds.
