House of Commons today hy
Parliamentary Secretary Broderick

of thc Legation were holding out live

Admiralties announcement that the
Chinese have been defeated antl are
retreating hefore the Allies as making the outlook rather more cheerful
today than since Admiral Seymour's
unsuccessful expedition,
The Russians hard fighting   on   the
Siberian frontier,  the difficulties of
their position on tlie l.iao Ting Peninsula and the prospect of a revolt
against France in Dido-China will
probably prevent cither Power from
Bending reinforcements to the Allies

Hence the United Slates, Great Brit-

Washington, D. c.,  Aug.  h.���Ah a
result of the conference Inst night between the President. Acting Secretary of State McAdoo. Secretary Hoot
anil General Corbln, a cablegram was
lent early this morning to Cousul-
General Uoodnow, including a copy
of the dispatch from Minister Conger
und advising him of the situation as
it is understood here. He was directed to communicate this to Karl Li
Hung Chang, to Sheng anil to such
Viceroys as can transmit it to whatever Government there is in the Chinese Empire.
This cable contained what is said
to be a very emphatic statement of
the position of this Government, saying that action is Immediately necessary. While it is not, strictly speaking, an ultimatum it Is very close to
it. The (Iovernment offloials here regard the situation as very dangerous
to Minister Conger and other foreigners In Pekin and grave doubt is expressed iih to whether the International forces can reach l'ekin iu time to
rescue the Ministers.

speech at the proroguing of Parliament, after stating that the relations
with tlie Powers of Kurope and

I placed in the strongest light the heroism antl high military qualities ofthe
troops brought together under my
banner from this country, from
Canada, Australia antl my South
African possessions."
The specch'then says: ''Believing
the continued Independence of the republics to he a constant danger to the
I peace  of  South Africa  I  authorised
! the annexation of tlie Free State as a
lirst step to the union of thc races
under an institution which may
time be developed so as to secure
rights ami privileges in Soutli Africa. "
Referring to China, the speech from
the Throne says: "The British antl
other Legations at l'ekin have been
unexpectedly attacked by an insurgent mob and it is feared many of
tbeir Inmates have been murdered,
How far Hie Chinese authorities are
accomplices in this atrocious crime
and whether the liritisli Minister anil
his family arc among the victims are
matters still in uncertainty, The utmost efforts will be made by myself
and my allies to visit with punishment the authors of this unexampled
crime."

Victoria. B. ('., Aug. 8���All da]
yesterday the hotel corridors ami

theme of John Houston, his speech ii
the Honse and his knockout blow on
Qovernment Street. Interest has been
intense ami the lack of details as to
the varied results have no ilnubt added Same to the public appetite.
Since his arrival here the Member
for Nelson had preserved complete silence adding thereby greatly to the
effeel of those mottled rumors of his
personality which bad long percolated
through the Capital. Having few
friends ami not adding greatly to the
number, his solitary slate made him a
rival of Joe Martin iu public interest
even in Martin's palmiest hour.
In the Legislature a similar reserve
was maintained, lie has been heard
to swear at tbe Cabinet Ministers but |
that was attributed to disappointed
aspirations as all but four of lho
Members   have   been   approached   for
Cabinet appointments.
Ilia treatment of his fellow members was brusque iu the extreme antl

following Western ditty as applicable
to his case: 'T'ni wild anil woolly ami
full of llces. I'm hard to curry above

Creek and it's my   night  to   howl."
His speech in tbe Legislature was of
a muddled sort, claiming to support
Hie (Iovernment. he attacked them as
incapable antl with difficulty anil by
many repetitions of lhat phrase prevented himself from the use of another
ami more habitual sort.
His grasp of the subject of debate
wus so mixed that his whole speech
resulted from a misunderstanding on
his own part. Three miles is the ra-
tlitius for signatures for pel iI ions for
llcenses'and a one mile radius determines thc amount of license payable
in rural districts. Houston got these
mixed up iu his head und so let loose.
Shortly after tbe debate tbe Premier
Is said to have notified him that the
Qovernment will not require his presence at future Qovernment   caucuses.

Nelson,   B. C.
efforts to prevent   these   catastrophes
have not approached within   measure-
able distance of what might have beeu
done, and it is now  uot   only   useless
but unprofitable to attempt  to   calculate tbe loss sustained except as an incentive to do all that   is   possible   to
prevent, ns far as can he done, further
destruction from the same cause.   Thc
fires iu liritish Columbia,   as in   most
other places, have originated through
carlesancss on the part of those travelling through or working in the woods,
ThiB is <(uite evident when   wc   know-
that prior to the commencement of the
Canadian I'acitie   Hallway  there   hail
been very little destruction of   timber
from that   cause   along   the   country
through which it runs: but with   the
construction of thc road antl the influx
of people along tbe line came the fires
that have now scarcely   left   a   green
tree within sight of the   track.    Mining trails, too, are   now   being   built
all through the country; and   up   antl
down these pass   the   prospector,    tbe
hunter, ami the tourist; many of whom
are unacquainted with the consequences resulting from a lire in this   conn-
try, while, especially for tbe prospector, it is often to bis advantage lo have
the Country burnt over mi as   to   have
thc surface of the ground or rock more
exposed."
That little hit at the prospector is
not the only one in tbe report. There
Is an extract from remarks made by
Mr. A. (I. Wheeler, 11. I,. S.,
In respect to the timber of tlie eastern
foothills. There is tbe Inevitable
reference to tbe inevitable tire, in
which occurs the following: "Over
natural causes, such ns fires started by
lightning, there can be no control;
but it has been rumored that there
are other causes���parties requiring
dry timber for market purposes, prospectors wishing to examine rock out
crops, ranchers who have none loo
much pasturu land, and. chief of all,
carelessness iu lighting ami extinguishing camp fires when high winds
are in season. " Evidently the prospector is a person who will bear
watching. Hut he is not I he only one,
unfortunately, and we quote as |t���c_.
ally as we tin from this rcporl In the
hope lhat a general sense of the dan-
ger thnt Is always threatening will extend tn onr Ministers al Vletoria.who
Will revise the law in tlir case and if
not stringent enough to prevent carelessness will see that it Is made so.
ilr Claude Macdonald was not in
tlie most amiable mood when compiling bis lirst dispatch as a besieged
Minister, There is the trace of disgust through all of it. It is the first
ollicial and authentic information received that Qovernment troops have
been aiding tbe Boxers in their attack on the Legations. There haa
been the usual Chinese duplicity from
the beginning. It is probably not too
late to make a submission that will
avoid a formal declaration of war on
the part of the Powers, but the Clit -
j nese (Iovernment have already so far
compromised themselves as to require
a sharp reckoning on settling day.

WINDERMERE    NOTES.
Construction work ha* commenced
on the Government wagon roads up
Toby and liorsethief creeks. On the
the Phoenix group situated on the
Bonth fork of Horsethief Creek, a remarkable showing has been uncovered. K. S. Gallop is in charge of the
property, representing Montreal capital.
The Windermere District Annual
Itnccs bid fair to prove a grand success on August Itrd and 4th.
On the White Cap group on Boulder
Creek the development now going on
Is proving this property to be a gigantic silver-lead and copper proposition.
Paradise Group, situated on Spring
Creek '�� undoubtedly the biggest
thing In the camp. Regular shipments will commence  early this   fall.
At the Silver Crown and Silver Belt
claims, situated in the Paradise Ba-
s'.n, an Immense showing of high
grade ore has been uncovered in the
present workings.
The Shamrock, situated adjoining
the Paradise Group, on Spring Creek,
will be developed in tlie Immediate
future. This is certainly a promising
claim.
Development work on an Immense
scale will be commenced in the immediate future on the Bed I.ine group
on McDonald Creek, tributary of Wild
Thief Creek.
Several very promising Claims have
been located and recorded ou Number
Two Creek, during the past few weeks.
David R. McLean located one of tlie
most promising prospects in the district on the north fork some few weeks
ago.
James R. McLeod and partners uncovered an Immense showing of ore
very similar to the Paradise on the
Nick of Time and Well Done elaiins
on Boulder Creek.

lease the prisoner ,,n   bis   own   r g-
nizance.
J. K. Btrachan was the tir.t witness
called and was followed by W. J.
Thompson both of whom gave the
same evidence a- at the hearing, ln
his cross-examination of the latter
Mr. tialliher revealed his line of defence. He elicited answers .bowing
that a peculiar kind of waste, used
by furniture men. was laying on the
bench at whieh the lire started. Tbe
���un was shining through the window
on to this waste. Mr. Thompson
testified that the waste was very liable
to spontaneous combustion. J. W.
Pittock. .lames Temple. W. J. I.illie.
John Ilunyan and '.'. D. J. Christie
gave evidence.
Mr. Halliher objected to any evidence being taken regarding insurance
but Uis Honor admitted it. sub;, it to
Mr. Galliher's objection. Mr. C_
testified that the accused obtained a
���T.lOii policy on the stock of the Nelson Furniture Company, which was
represented by the prisoner to In-
worth 110,000. i hief of Police Jarvis
repeated his evidence given at th.
hearing and was followed by A. W.
Purdy. partner of the prisoner. All
questions pertaining to motive were
objected toby Mr. Halliher and various arguments were Offered by the
different lawyers, the judge generally
deciding in the prisoner's f_v,,r.
Mr. Halliher subjected Mr. I'urdy
to a searching croag-examinal ion after
Mr. Johnson had had all his avenues
of questioning cut off. The cross-examination was an effort lo bulldoze
the witness, but very little was elicited. T. II. Howell was the asi witness for the Crown and testified to Insurance.
Judge Forin discharged thc prisoner en the ground that there was no
evidence to convict him, so the
defense called no wltnessess,
Civil actions will new be Instituted,
as the insurance companies will not
pay the policies until they are more
satistied than they are now thai thc
tire was not  of an   incendiary origin.

Iu regard to the fracas between
Messrs. Houston and Tolmie  at  Vic
:., on Monday afternoon it seems
lhat there was a previous rncounter
un the  same day  that   led  up to  th*
knockout blow. The Spokesman-Review of yesterday says that Hushed
with his wordy victory in the House,
Mr, Houston sallied forth after adjournment and came across Rod Tolmie. secretary of the Mines Association of Nelson. Naturally, owing to
the row over the Nelson strike, the
relations between the two were somewhat strained, and from a wordy to a
ix-rsonal encounter the trouble proceeded, till Tolmie pitched Houston
across a hotel bar. A truce was
patched up and later they met on Government street, wheu Houston \s.i-
laid out by Tolmie as described in
yesterday's Miner.
