Herman Minister, Baron Von Kette-

tbe Foreign Office has tried every
possible way of getting something
definite.

Lord Snlisbuiy was iptiHliourd in

unable to enl'ghten the Houso on the
state of uffaiis in China.
Admiral Seymour had returned to
Tien Tsin, but the Government did nut
know exactly why, nor what Admiral
Soy mom's Intentions were.
The failure of the International
forces to reach l'ekin lias greatly intensified tbo anxiety here as to the
fato of tbe Europeans huddled together
iu the Legations at the Chinese Capital, and it is feared also that the check
to Admiral Seymour's forces, necessitating Iheir return to Tien Tsin, will
lead to large additions to tho ranks of
the Boxers and mrke the'l' suppression

"The telegraph line and railway
between Tien Tsin and Taku are destroyed. .Mail communication by
water is also threatened."
Later a semi-cfilcial despatch from
Clin Fu announces tbat tho Taku forts
had la-en onplured nfter a combined attack by the foreign wnrHbips. Threo
meu on tbe (lermnn warship litis
were killed and seven wounded.

settlements of Tien Tsin were being llr-
ed upon by Chinese. Wheu tho despatch
left nothing hud beeu heanl from the
(lermnn detaohmetit sent to Pekin or
from tbe German Legation.
The nnollioial narratives, coming by
way of Shnughai, vary widely nnd
bear internal evidonce of supplementing tbe main facts with guesswork.
Oue despatch says the Yorktown
participated in tbe bombardment.
Another asserts tbat Ammioau marines
formed part of tho storming foico of
tho two thousand.        ,
Au Associated Pross despatch from

The Shanghai coi respondent of The

says:
"Tbe forts began Pring in obedience
to orders from Pekin, conveyed in a
personal edict of the Kmpri-S Dowager, by advice of Kang Yi, .resident

eccentric action of the telegraph wires

Kempff from communicating with tbe
Navv Department, and also witb bis
superior officer, Admiral Beroey at
Manilla, tbo Navy Department may
give Admiral Kempff an independent
nomninnd in the interests ol the qulok
despatch of business.
Thero hns been no frinflon whatever
between the two Admirals, nnd the
Commander in chief of the station,
Admiral Remey, has lent doe ��npport
to Admirnl Kempff during the orisis.
The Yorktown wan sent from Shanghai
to Oho Fu by Admiral Komay without express instructions from tbe Department, and has sorved a very good
purpose horn.
. It is supposed at tho Navy Department that Admirnl Remny has pursued a similar oonrse with respeat to
the gunboat Concord, the sister ship of |
the Yorktown, whioh, according to
pie-'s despatches,sailed from tbat place
under stated orders, presumably for
China.
It was said m the Department lhat
no instructions to tbat effect bad gone
forward from here, so it is supposed
thnt. Admiral Remey is again acting
voluntarily to Strengthen the hands of
Admiral Kempff.
Great apprehension exists at tho
Navy Department as to the fate of tbe
United Slates Marine Ctiard of fifty-six
men,.wbioh was landed at Tien TBin
and dispatched by rail to l'ekin before
the railroad was interrupted. They
went fot ward to Pekin uuder an authorization granted by the ' Ohiuese
GnvorumeL'1 to tbe United States Minister at Pekin, in common with other
Ministers, fo employ a naval guard at
the Legation. Just before the wires
from Pekin weie cut word came that
Minister Conger bad detatcbed twenty
of these marines from his Legation and
placed them as a guurd at the Methodist compound.
'This is an enclosure of some ten
acres, situated nearly a mile distant
from the Legation, where many mis-
sioiicries and their families, ns well as
a huge number of native Christians,
are believed to hnve taken refuge.
Boers Preparing For Prolonged Stand

The Boer commanders aro retiring

Boers are destroying the bridges behind tbem, currying oil' provisions and

ammunition, withdynrmitc aud oxen,
and tint they are preparing heavy
wagon trains for a retreat to the Lydenburg District, where tbo Chiefs,not-
witbstnndiug rumors to the contrary,
are determined to make a stand.
Mr. Steyn in his proclamation declared the Free State still free and
Independent* and says the fact'that

Lord Roberts' annexation contrary to

talk about him as a Vice-Presidential
candidate:
"It is impossible to too deeply ex
press how touched I am hy tbo ntll-

thoroughly I nndcrstand the high
honor aud dignity of the office, an
office so high nud so honorable that  il
well worthy tho ambition of nny

thnt every friend of mine in the convention respect my wish and judgment
in this matter."

SANDON   FIRE   FUND.
Plucky  Sandon  Does Not Use  Ono-
b.iii   Gash Sent to Her.
The Sandon lire is of sufficiently
recent date for any details of tbe
relief fund to arouse^general Interest.
The following menturunda of the
total receipts and disbursements by
the relief committee rather tend to
eoulirm the assertions of several visitors to Sandon, at the time ofthe lire,
to the effect tbat her people were not
so greatly in need of outside funds.
The Item of over Ja.Onn balance in
hand shows there was no urgent need
for the money.
It is to the credit of the Knsio
people that less than one-half the
fuutl was disbursed and that they
were only too anxious to rely upon
their own resources.
Total cash receipts 10,681.16
Total disbursements    1.77s.so
Balance on hand 5,142.3S
The above does not take any account
of the receipts of goods which were
furnished to the relief committee.
Through a clerical error iu the Rank
of Montreal. Nelson, a further sum of
11,000 has yet to be transferred to the
fund..

THE CHANCE MISSED.
Campbell-Bannermnn. Recent elections in the Isle of Wight and South
Manchester would indicate this
much, So I'.ir as the Transvaal is
concerned, Lord Salisbury could
not Uo better than dissolve now. If
the event has been postponed from
July to October, it will be necessary
to find some, other explanation.
Perhaps it may be discovered in the
fact that the Government have nothing to fear from the Liberals, who
are more at sixes and sevens than
at any time since the abdication of
Mr. tilfttlstonc, and they ate safe,
therefore, in consulting their own
convenience, with due regard for all
public interests.
Mr. Joseph Martin was a singularly favored individual. His Honor gave him bis own time to form
his Cabinet. Usually a week is
considered sufficient for the task,
but Mr. Martin took over a month.
Mr. Dunsmuir will not be so in- ���
dulled. If he were it would be'
worth while to consider seriously a
suggestion made by The Rossland
Miner, that the portfolio of Minister
of Mines be given to Mr. Mackintosh and. that a seat be provided for
him. We are afraid in the excitement at the Capital tbat this very
sensible suggestion will not be entertained; not because of indifference,
but rather because of the fact that a
number of gentlemen who were
more fortunate in their efforts to obtain a seat will insist on having a
first claim. If Mr. Dunsmuir weie
permitted a round fortnight or so in
which to consider the matter, he
might be successful in convincing
all other aspirants for Cabinet honors that a better arrangemenfcould
not be made.
Unless the Cabinet is spoiled in
its construction, the mere weight of
Mr. Dunsmuir's own name will do
much to re-establish confidence in
British Columbia among the mining
investors of Great Britain. But il
to his were added that of Mr.
Mackintosh, who is so well known
among London capitalists and
whose name is associated with
large and successful enterprises, it
would not be too much to expect
that all the harm done by the
lamentable agitation of the past
year would be immediately repaired.
And the discouragement caused by
the apprehension of a term of Mr.
Martin would be more than counteracted. Mr. Mackintosh as Minister of Mines in a Cabinet of which
Mr. Dunsmuir was Premier would
do more for mining- in British
Columbia than any other combination that is just now within the
possibilities. If the electors of
Rossland Riding had not been
shortsighted they would have
known that the Martin Government
was certain to be defeated. And in
that event Mr. Smith Curtis would
be, as he will be, a very useless
member of the Opposition. How a
constituency could be guilty of the
crass stupidity of defeating Mr.
Mackintosh for Mr. Curtis will long
remain the prize enigma of British
Columbia politics. It can only be
accounted for on the theory that a
large proportion ol the business
men of Rossland are fools. It
may not become any one in Nelson,
however, to say too much on that
point; we did not do so very much
better ourselves.
At a meeting of the Rossland
Hoard of Trade a few evenings ago
it was decided to send the following
telegram to all other Boards of
Trade in the Province; "Will
you join Rossland Hoard ol Trade
in sending strong protest Dominion
Government against further retention in office of Lieutenant-Governor Melnnes, urging his instant removal on ground that his continuance in ollice is a menace to the
prosperity of the Province." It is
presumed, of course, that a copy of
it was received by the Board of
Trade here. The members of it are
not any too enthusiastic in attending meetings, a frequent consequence of which is that there is no
quorum present. But if requested
to endorse a demand for the removal of Lieutenant-Governor Melnnes
we have no doubt the pleasure of
complying would result in a very
emphatic and unanimous response.

be nothing gained in waiting until

anticipating the end, for the coun-

LOCAL NEWS.
The oommiltee in charge of tho Witter

along the water front iu regard lo dee-
orating and illiiininiiting llit-ir Ikmibi-h nu
the nigl,t of the !.lrd of July. The committee have promised to supply tbe Inn*
tcriiH and they have agreed In tixo tlani
for decorating their houses, Many nf
them have iilmi volunteered to put up
iIii-iii,.|.n,ii:i uf their own. no Unit it inny
lie counted upon that  Hie   water front
will present a beautiful appearanoe Mint
night.
Another novel feature now in eimtein
plutinu by the coiiimitlio is au eleetrie
fountain in tho middle of the lake. It
tbiB is successfully oaiiied out it will
enhuncu the beauty of tho Carnival, To
got this effect a pipe would be laid aud a
nozzle ereoted from a float. In this wny
a atreiini could be thrown iu the air,
making n fountain seventy-five foil
high. Colored eleotric lights could be
thrown upon the fountain and a rainbow
effect secured.
Besides the fireworks lhat will be din-
played by tho committee many private
parties will contribute to that feutuio
of the evening.
The committee has uot yet heard
from anyone in regard to lilting up a
refreshment boat. There would a good
chance for some of the local ooterers lo
make a good thing of it.
The Nelson Boat Club's Iwathouse
will be used for the accommodation of
the boats ol the visiting crews. Tho
outer end of the house will be locked
aud a gate placed across a Host nt the
shore end so as to exclude all persons
but competitors from tho boathouse
during the races.
The rowing course will probably be
laid off today and buoys will be placed
to mark tbe ends of the course.
wan heard, A point. Interesting to

Mr. A. Wheeler, for the defense, It
was that the plaintiff having served
the defendant with a suocesslvc summons, whioh was ii,siii-il by judge's
order more than three months after
the oommencement of the aotion, that
Bervico was n nullity on the ground
Hint tho action had expired and could
uot be recovered, It appeared, however, that the plaintiffs had served n
previous summons too late for the
pending court and applied for an adjournment of the hearing on that
ground, Tin- judge held, therefore,
that tho fit'Bl Bervice was BufHotent
to entitle plaintiffs to an adjournment
and the successive summons objections in was therefore unnecessary,
lie therefore refused the application

Manager Annable has prepared a
treat for Nelson music lovers iu the
coming of Mile. Antoinette Trebelli I
who will appear at the Opera House
next Saturday evening, ller tour has
beeu one of unbounded success. Everywhere large houseB have welcomed
her, and nowhere has she failed to
win tribute I'r.uu the critics and discriminating music lovers. The soprano seems to have especially delighted her audiences in San Friin-
cibco. Following is a recent notice
from the San l'Vanclsco Examiner!
"A large audience greeted Mile.
Trebelli. at her second song recital in
Sherman Clay Hall last night, when
her singing created greater enthusiasm than at her previous appearance.
The lady was in fine voice, and
seemed to fairly revel in the vocal
gems of which her programme was
composed. She first presented her
four numbers in French anil English,
closing with Die favorite, "Solveig's
Leid," by tlreig, that Tvcbelli has
almost made her own by her effective
rendering of it. Its episode of vocalization in which the purity of her
voice and teuhiuioue are particularly
noticeable, brought an Interruption of
applause. "Caro^Nomc, " from "Big-
oletto,'' was sung in a manner worthy
of a Pntti or Melba, and again as an
encore Tosti'B "Spring." The singer
next offered three 17th century ballads
and, in respi iiise i o pr. ih ui;! i-i I applause.
the "Bird Song," from "Pagllacai,"
but the audience would not be satisfied until she had sung her ���laughing soug," which gives fiill play
to the natural exuberance of this
eloquent singer's taleiitB."
It is all right to lake ndvanliige of
the enn ni! ou Knutnny Lake and rest
on your oare, but it doesn't do to go to
sleep in a small boat and allow the current to do wi i you what it will. Two
careless individuals learned this to
their Borrow yesterday. They hnd imbibed rather too freely, and in order to
be off by theniselves in full eujoyment
of their condition they boarded n boat,
which lay on the beach below the C.
P, B, Depot, nud put out.to sea, After
getting away from land they polled
theirours aboard, stretched themselves
at ease aud went to sleep. Then they
started;i down with tbe current. The
steamer Nelsou saw them nud wIiih-
tied loud and long, but. it did uo goi tl.
The steamer went after them, but the
boat traveled too swiftly. They bntl
got down past tho "danger" sign and
wss racing along nt a high rate of
speed. Al this point one of the meu
awoke. He realized his position nt
once, and in a moment both he and
his oompanlon were struggling desperately to got the host in quiet water. It.
took them Borne lilt'e lime to do it, but
they succeeded. When they landed
they were perfectly sober and veiy
mnch frightened.

THE OLD DETECTIVE.
HE TELLS OF A COUPLE OF HIS PECULIAR EXPERIENCES.
The Man who Waa Found HnbhliiK a
Trunk and tho Man Who Whk IOtU
dt-ntly  a Suicide���>ltorleo  Showing;
How Aiiiii-iitii  May Deceive.
"When I wns considerably younger and
greener lu this business," snid un old detective who hnil been asked to tell a
story of bis experience, "I lived at a certain hotel, which It is nut iu tho least
noecssnry to uuiue. Ono rainy, sleety
night in early winter I cuinc iu very Into,
nnd going directly to my room wns surprised to find thu door ajar. I hud ou a
pair of old rubbers, so my npprouch hnd
iniide uo uuise, nnd pooping in 1 saw a
man bending over uiy open trunk. 1 did
nut stop to meditate, but was ou his back
in u couple of jumps, und who should It
(urn out to bo but thu porter, a young
while mini, much liked by everybody in
tlie houso, lie wus so startled lhat ho
Couldn't sny a word, and there was the
evidence plain ns dny. The trunk hnd
been forced with a chisel, which Iny on
tho floor. The contents were tumbled
ubout, nud sticking In tho lock of the
door wus n skeleton key mndu out ot a
piece of copper wire,
"When the porter found his tongue he
begged me not to turn him over to the
police. lie siild Unit his mother, who wns
dependent on him for support, wns sick
nnd in destituto clrcmnstuuces; that ho
wns unable to onrn enough to provide her
with necessaries, nnd his desperate need
of money hnd tempted him to the act. It
wns his first offense, ho pleaded) nnd If I
would let him off It would bo Ids last���In
short, he guve tne the usual Btory, hut he
told it so well and begged so piteonsly
Hint nt last I weakened and told him to
got out. Next day he quietly loft town,
and Inter on I discovered thnt the mother
story wns u fake. Then 1 cussed myself
for being a fool.
"Nearly a yenr nftorward," continued
tho detective, "I arrested a professional
crook for car breaking und found him
wearing n puir of my own cuff buttons
which I hnd missed for n long time and
didn't know what had become of then.
Under pressure he confessed that he had
stolen them from a room In such aud
such a linu le, naming tho hotel where I
lived. He snld ho had opened the door
with a fnlse key, broken into a trunk aud
wns just rilling it when he heard somebody coming and darted out, barely
dodging u young man lu the hall. I pulled out the copper skeleton key, which I
still had on my ring, nud ho Identified It
iuimedintely as the one he had used.
"You muy well believe I wns considerably ngituted, nud I went to work immediately to locate the e_-portor. After
a good deal of difficulty I finally found
him lu Memphis clurking ln a grocery
store. I got tho tip, hy the way, from a
letter ho had written to a friend. Well,
I cornered him and insisted on an explanation, aud ho told 1110 a story 1 will
uover forgot us long as I live.
"He said he was coining down tho hall
thnt night, when ho saw a mnn run out
ot my room. The fellow got awny before he could grab him, aud, naturally
enough, ho went in to see wlint wns up.
Ho noticed the trunk open nnd hnd just
stooped down to see whether it had been
forced when I rushed in. Tho surprise
of it bewildered him for n moment, nnd
then he realized that he hnd been caught
Inadvertently in a position that would
certainly convict him of burglary.
" '1 knew you wouldn't believe me if I
told you tho truth,' he said, 'and would
bo deud sure to have me arrested, but I
did thiuk there was some chance ot
working on your feelings by pretending
to confess. I remembered hearing you
remark,' sold he, 'that you always felt
sorry for a mnn thnt owned up.* So he
tried that plan, and, ns you already
know, it worked. I was satisfied that
what ho told me was absolutely true,
and, taken altogether, 1 believe thnt was
tho queerest case I ever had anything to
do with. The Inst I henrd of tho young
mnn he wns living In Atlanta aud doing
well.   Tho car thief got seven yenrs."
"At our business It doesn't do to Jump
at conclusions," Baid the detective. "1
had thnt fnct Impressed on my mind long
ago when I was young nud green, by
something thnfoccurrod nt a certain city
���nover mind exactly where. I enn tell
you tho story just ns well without the
nnmo. A mnn of soino prominence was
staying at the principal hotel of the
plneo, and ono morning ho was found
dead In his bed, with the door locked on
the Inside, windows fnstened nnd tho gas
turned on full tilt. Nobody doubted that
he had committed suicide, nud aa he had
been handling some trust funds I wns engaged to inuko a privuto Investigation.
As far ns 1 could discover, his affairs
were straight, hut a vague suspicion nevertheless attached to his memory. People don't kill themselves for nothing, nnd
it was generally believed that aomo hidden irregularity In his life had driven
him to tho net.
"Fully two years later I waa ln the
same city with a very shrewd ollicer nnd
told Mm about the case. Ho thought a
awhile und then Burpiised mo hy iisking
whether I had exnmlned ihe door key.
'No,' I replied, 'the door wns locked on
the inside, and I didn't think it worth
while.'
" 'Lot's look nt It now,' he snld, ami
when we secured It nt the hotel he
pointed out a little hole nt each sido of
the ond of the shaft. 'Thnt Is where the
key  wns gripped   by  pliers  and   turned
from iho outside,' ho explained,    Ills
theory wns that the room had been entered by some one, probnhly a thief, who
rilled the man's clothing, turned on the
gns, either accidentally or purposely, nnil
locked the door agnin from tho outside hy
thrusting n pnir of pliers Into thu keyhole.
"I then remembered that no money
hnd been found In the pocketB. Tho discovery of the mnrks on the key wns most
suggestive, and starting on a new tack
I soon knocked the suicide theory higher
thnn n kitu. The thief was never located,
hut his victim's name wns completely
cleared ot stain."���New Orleans Times-
