Chaffee's   Message of   the

Intelligence.
(BY ASSOCIATED PHKS. .)
London, Aug, 14���General Chaffee's
message of the loth, announcing his
arrival Aug. 8th at Hoy Wu, stands
as the last official Intelligence of the
inarch of the allied forces on Pekin.
The English papers say it is rather
annoying that their naval and military officers cannot communicate with
the high ollieials here while Admiral
Remey and Genera] Chaffee can do so
by the Shanghai-Canton wire.
Chinese reports are being distributed
far and wide in tlie southern provinces
of alleged Chlneses successes in tlie
north. Secret Inquiries at Canton
show all the forts have been newly
armed witli I'.' centimeter disappearing Kims and that the garrisons ,'ue
armed with Mausers and Winchesters,
The Chinese have also been trying
to engage a foreign electrician to lay
mines in tlie bogUOi or cut ranee to the
river. Dr. .Marks, l.i Hung Chang's
physician Informed ihe correspondents at Shanghai this morning that
l.i could not go north ou account of
the weather and the unsettled state
of the country. The doctor is removing his family from Canton because
he believes there   may be an outbreak
there.
St. Petersburg papers aro campaigning against the political activity of
Great Britain ill the Yang Tse Valley.
The St. Petersburg Gazette has interviewed a member of the i'nited States
Embassy as to the reasons why the
United Stales assumed a hostile attitude towards China in view of l.i
Uung Chang's declaration lhat Minister Conger could be sent safe to Tien
Tsin on condition that the United
States abandon the idea of ii march on
l'ekin. The member of the I'nited

as laying that the United states was

awaken interest in Manitoba among

much admired wherever shown. The

"Kitchener reports from Sohool;

THE GKANBY SMELTER
For ,thc Forthcoming
"The MiKado."
At a meeting of the executive committee of tlie Nelson Operatic Society
yesterday afternoon a provisional
caste was made for the produotlon of
Mikado.   .1. II.   Barnes occupied the

Parry, J. C. T. Crofts. T, G. llaultaln,
II. 11.  Haines.  I,,    li.    Hodge  and   W.
W.  Beaton.     It   was   decided   to   ask
Mrs.    Melville    Parry   to   Blng    the
leading   part   of   Yum   Yum.     Mrs.
Parry's     splendid      voice     and     experience     in     operatic     productions
will insure   the   capable   handling   of
the   part.    Mrs.   W,     A.   Macdonald,
who made such a favorable impression
in Pinafore, will not   be   ill   the   city
for  Mikado,   and   unfortunately  her
name cannot appear in the easle.  Miss
Bensusan    was   selected     for   "l'itti
Sing'' and the society is fortunate   in
being able to do so.    Miss   Ida   Johnston will complete   the   "three   little
maids" as "Peep-Bo,"   The  difficult
part of Katisha will be taken by Mrs.
M. S. Davys.   Mr. Freeman Lake was

HITCH IN CONFERENCE.
Strike at Winnipeg Not Settled Yesterday as AntlclDated.
Winnipeg1, Aug. 14.���Tlie anticipated settlement of the (\ I*. R. strike
does not look so near as was thought
last week. The trouble now is OTer
the question of a minimum wage.
AH day Saturday and yesterday the
committee of allied mechanics wore
in conference with Master Mechanic
Orde and Win. Cross, and up Ut Saturday at noon affairs appeared to he
progressing favorably in the negotiations.
At noon today the conference was
still on and from what can he learned
the committee are not satisfied with
the trend of affairs.    Tlie men ask for
a certain minimum wftge to he settled
iii for mechanics and a wage schedule
to be graded up from them.   The management)   on the   other hand) are not
agreeable to thin, and. instead, wish
to fix a certain scale of wages tn be
graded down. The men are rather
indignant at this and talk threateningly of more trouble in the wind.
Tlie situation, therefore, is about
where it was at the opening of the
strike.
Mr. Cross had a conference with
Manager Whyte this morning, and
probably a better color will he given
to the situation, when the conference
will continue. Should this afternoon's meeting he of a satisfactory
nature, it is not likely that tlie strike
will continue for many hours after,
as a great deal depends upon tin- concessions given to the mechanics,
RICHARD IS HIMSELF AGAIN."

we have always pleaded for due recognition ill our Schools  of    subjects like
modern history nnd geography  .is of
Infinitely more Importance  than   half
the   curriculum   which   torments the
brains of our youngsters, aud it   is   a
great satisfaction lo   know that   even
our ancient universities   nre   now increasingly eager to promote ihe study
of our colonial history which and   all
those geographical subjects for which
Mr. Mackinder and others hnve so  often and so eloquently pleaded.    A proposal like   that   of    Lord    Btrathcona
will do much to help the   good   work,
because it brings in practical   fashion
the advantage of a knowledge   ofthe
Canadian Dominion before   onr  rural
schools and smaller towns. Norshould

��� C, H. Gilbert, secretory of the Board
of Provincial Eire Insurance Underwriters, ashed the Council thai some
action be taken to compel the Tramway Company to place guard wires on

was InBtrUOted to write to the Tramway Company and request it to provide
such guard wires.
On the request ofthe Hoard of Trade

intention of building new- ones. The
new Stables have not been erected and
last night Mr. liim- ashed the city to
vacate the building or pay a rental of

San  Francisco  Critics   Lavish
praise upon Frances Oraham.
Mrs. Brougham is scoring  triumph
after   triumph at   the  Tlvoll   in   San
Francisco,     She   hud  been   in   comic
opera and   in the   lighter  grand, and
quite recently appeared in Aida.    She
is as   delightful   in   one as the other.
The musical critic   in  Town  Talk   is
loud ill his praises:    "But  thc  greatest surprise." he   suys,   "experienced
by the audience   was the Amneris   of
Frances Graham.   To tell  the truth
Miss Graham's unprecedented success
was no surprise to me.    1 expected it.
But 1 did not expect it lo he so   .spontaneous nor so   well earned us   it was
on lust Monday night.  Miss Graham's
contralto does not contain that coarse
masculinity nor that effeminate pallor
which so often  mars the  beauty of u
true contralto voice.      She   possesses a I
voice   whose   remarkable   flexibility,
velvety quality and astonishing range
make it an organ well  worth our unbounded admiration.     I   have  heard
thc solo   in the   lifth   act   sung often,
hut 1 must confess never to have been
moved by It   to such   au extent   as on
this occasion   when   Miss   (Iraham��� a
beautiful woman���sang it with  such
integrity, sincerity and  warmth   that
it penetrated every fibre of the heart,
No wonder that the applause that followed   this   scene wus   deafening and
women tore flowers from their   gowns
to throw entliusiusticully  ut  thc   feet
of the artist."
Thut high class ^literary weekly.
The Argonaut, is not less enthusiastic:
"Frances Temple Graham, as Amneris.
is beautiful on a Juno scale, with
goddess-like grace of motion, impassioned as a Southerner, and looks her
part at the first glaaee; when the contralto's lips open, when her sweet,
rich notes rise and swell and till the
theatre, she no longer looks it, she is
the purt Incarnate. Miss Graham was
granted the gift of song and the dramatic instinct; she has trained botli
so accurately thut she sweeps her
audience away in a tempest of passionate sympathy, We forget to pity
poor Aida; her rival cluims us and
keeps us with charm of timbre, with
charm of pin-using. Voice, gesture,
glance, her very soul aflame with passion, she hurries us on to the artistic
triumph of the last act, Amneris
wooing Uadnmcs the victim ; Amneris
pleading,kneeling, groveling prostrate I
in her helpless love and self-reproach : j
Amneris culling down down the ven-'
geance of heaven upon the priests���
this Amneris strikes our imagination
and heats our blood, And thc heart
of the audience was not with the
lovers in their tomb, but up above
with Amneris, who had so vainly
uttered her piteous 'Ayez pi tie de lui,
aye/, pitie de moi!' For Miss Graham
elects to cup thc linguistic complexities of the Tivoli by taking her role in
French; verily our cosmopolitan opera
is an education In itself."   All this is
very gratifying to her Nelson friends.
