���I:ilii n.m.���Observers at Shanghai and Tinn Tsin think
there ia a grout deal more trouble
ahead tor the Power! than tho more
reaching of Pekin" with 2i)(iO meu.
Serious disturbances are taking plnco
at Yuu Nuu Fu and Mon_ Tse ns well
as at other points, a considerable (lis-
tanos from the Capital. The whole
Chinese Umpire seems to be in a ferment.
Russia, according to a St. Peteis-
bur(! despatch of Wednesday, has de-
oidod to bring her force nt Tieu Tsin
up to six thousand, thus the combined
foroe at Tien Tsin wil! be about 10,-
nun men.
The explicit statement m,.le yester-
day in the House of Commons by the
Parliamentary Secretary of the Foreign Office, Mr. Brodoriok, with reference to the identity of opinion among
the Powers on the question of tho application of force and tlie method of
applying it, is accepted by all the morning papers as quite sufficient for the
present, and the hope is generally expressed that nothiug will happen todi
miiiisli the harmony.
Yesterday some French murines
attempted to take charge of an engine
required at the front. Locomotive
Inspector Weir refused to give up
the engine and a Frenchman attempted to bayonet him. Weir caught
the muzzle of the rifle and the bayonet passed over hiB shoulder. For a
moment serious trouble between the
British and French was Imminent,
but the prompt action of tbe English
Consul aud Navy offloials backed by
the American Consul niul railway
offloials prevented a collision. Conciliatory expressions were exchanged,
the French Consul withdrew his opposition nud tbo British remained in
charge of tbe engine as 1

It is regarded aa certain that tbe Japan-

concerning the murder of the Chancellor of the Japanese Legation.
" In consequence of the disturbance

A Russian warship, with six hundred
troops, has gono to Hankow. Chinese

Washington, June 14.���A despatch
has been received at the British Embassy here from Admiral Seymour,
in command of the International
troopH now forcing tbeir way from
Tien Tsin to Pekin. The despatch
discloses the extreme difficulties encountered, mainly In the form of
trains destroyed, and stated that the
progress was only three miles for the
preceding :.'4 hours.
The Commanding Admiral felt that
it would be desirable to have additional forces in order to meet every
contingency, although the general
feeling was expressed that the trouble
wonld be less difficult to deal with
than had been expected.
It is concluded that, with the three
miles tediously oovored in the 24 hours
preceding tho Admiral's despatch
whioh is dated yesterday, the International force was 25 miles from
Pekin. There is every indication,
however, that the 25 miles will bo
about the most difficult of the entire
ronte. The doepatoh of the Admiral
makes no mention of further engagements with the Boxers.
Inst three days has consisted ot n single
liuo running uorth into Russian Manchuria, has at last been totally interrupted.
The statement that this Government
bus uot in the slightest degree changed
its position respecting the inexpediency
of lauding United StnteB troops in
Ohiua, is made with the knowledge on
the part of the State Department ��'u"
oialsoftlie current reports that other
Powers interested, notably Great Britain, Kusbin and Japan, either hnve already or are about to land troops at
Taku and Tien Tsin.
There seems to be a disposition to
make 11 distinction between tbe use of
troops and marines under existing
conditions. It possibly is assumed.-
that the presence of niarineH on Chinese soil, indicating from their charter that the landing is purely temporary, is much less apt to raise grave
International issues, either With
China or the other Powers represented
at Taku. Their employment therefore marks the extent of the force to
be put into play by the United States
Qovernment according to the present
determination. But for whatever
injury has been sustained by the
United States, either through the
killing of citizens or the destruction
of missionary property, China will
be beld for a heavy Indemnity,
The Japanese authorities here say
the Yokohama press despatch, stating
that Japan is to send a mixed regiment to China is undoubtedly correct
as it tallies with what has been expected iu diplomatic quarters.
Mr. Nabeshima, Charge d'Affaires,
says there are three ports at which warships aud transports assemble, namely.
Yokosukn, Kure and Sasebe. He believes that tbe movement will be made
from Kure. The headquarters of the
fifth military division is only two miles
from the naval port, so that no time
need be lost in getting troops Aboard
the transports in case the movements
aro deoided upon.
In some diplomatic quarters, there is
talk of a joint request, by all of the
parties interested, on either Japau or
Russia, or both oonntrieH, to land n
strong force of soldiers instead of the
limited numbers ot marines now avail
able. This, however, bas'nut yet taken
an olViciiil turn,
Mr. Nabeshima says Japan will uot
act along such lines unless nil Ihe Powers unite in the request of inch acbar-
acler. In that event, he feels Japan
could very readily and single-bunded
put an end to the disorder, as she could
laud a large force of soldiers, capable
of repairing the line to Pokin nnd
maintaining perfect quietude.
In another high diplomatic quarter,
representing one of the lirst Powers of
Europe, ic was stated that as Russia
and Japan have both large forces of soldiers near China, it might he expedient
for the Powers to nsk them to each send
an equal number of boldiors. This
would crcato a balance between Russia
and Japan and relieve both of them
from the suspicion of dispnlching n
large military torce for ulterior ends.

London. Juno 14���Lord Roberts' engagement with General Botha terminated as expected, the Hoor Commander-
in-Chief retreating  from his   position.
H.yond driving Botha further from
the Capital nothing much seems to have
been done,
Lord Roberts does not meiiliou the
capture of prisoners or guns or the infliction of loss. Perhaps the most iru-
poitnut figure revealed by today's ofll-
cial despatches is the announcement
that the army of Nnlal.ia nt last in touch
with Lord Roberts' troops. The accomplishment of this move, though long
delayed, should considerably accelerate
tha pacification at the Transvaal. That
it is already bearing fruit is evident by
tho submission of the Walkerstroom
district to (leneral Lyttleton.

London, Juno II.���A tolegrnm received from Yun Nan Fu says that the
English and French missions there
have been burned and that the foreign
residents have taken refuge in the
Viceroy's residence. The trouble, Ibis
despatch says, is reported to he due to
French intrigues.
A special despatch from Shanghai,
dated today, says: "A report 1ms been
received here that the British, American aud Japanese Ministers in Pekin
favor the restoration of Emperor Kwang
Fu, but that the French and Russian
Ministers insist upon the Powers taklug
charge of China.
"It is further reported that the respective divisions of the country have
already been assigned. The belief is
that the withdrawal ot the British ships
from the Yung Tse Kiang is an indication of Great Britain's disclaimer of
the sphere theory.
"Later reports from Tien Tsin confirm the news of the burning of the
Japanese Legation, bat the rumor that

Bays:
"The Dorssts, who hnve been so unlucky, had a chance at Almond's Nek
aud showed themselves to be as goad as
any others. About 150 yards at each
end of Laing's Nek the tunnels nre
blown up and it will require several
days to mote the debris. Tlie line otherwise is uninjured and open to the reversing stations and also lo Sands-
pruit."
London, June 15.���t a, m.���That
Commandant (ienernl Botha should
have been ablo to stand for two days
against Lord Roberts and then retreat,
without losing any guns or having his
meu captured, is taken to mean that he
has a force which the British must
reckon as formidable when acting defensively. The pacification of the
whole Transvaal, especially tlie wide
spaces far from the railways is looked
upon as a business requiring months
rather than weeks.

A Miner Correspondent's View of the
Present Situation.
Mr. Editor:���All observant Voter
who in the recent election has been
compelled to casta ballot for a selection of a batch of candidates nolle of
whom represents liis views ou Ihe
current issues may be allowed a  word
as to the outcome,
I see a great disposition manifested
by many to print   "Great Opposition
Victory" in big type and under that
heading to list themselves amongst
the victors.
The defeat of Mr. Martin has been
adequate   to   the   occasion   but really
a qualified victory iii comparison
with the result us exemplified in
the fate of the People's Provincial
Party.
Mr. Martin started three months
ago with a party consisting of himself alone, lie emerges from the fray
With seven or eight supporters. The
Provincial Party a year ago had
control of thu administration aud
counted twenty-two members in their
ranks.    They will   line   up when  the
House meets with a strength of live.
Much   is said as  to  the Verdict of
tlie country upon   tbe   unions of His
Honor, the Lieutenant-Governor,   and
it    is   held   that    tlie   defeat  of   Mr.
Martin implies the condemnation
of the Governor. This is false- in
the sense that the country bar. condemned the dismissal of the Semlin
Administration, The oonntry has
most distinctly and emphatically
endorsed His Honor's action ill this
respect. The country refused to the
dismissed Premier and three of bis
Cabinet     colleagues   and    to   half   a
dozen of his supporters the compliment of a nomination, and  ieft the
new leader of   the party   amongst the
freak candidates whose deposits
remain in the hands of the returning
oiiieeis.   of in oandidates whom they
put in the field nine have gain- la defeat, anil thr Itiers,    Smith,  lireen
und Houston have been elected as
representatives of lalior unions.
What the country has oondemned
the Governor for is the dismissal of
the Turner Administration. Of
candidates, past or present members
of the Turner Party, one only (Mr.
Bryden)   has  been  so   far defeated;
I'.i are known to be elected, and the
presumption is that tin- returns from
OOSSiar will add two more to tin'
list.
Your   press   dispatches     speak     of
speculation rife at tin- Coast as to tha
future of tbe Premiership, The inventive genius of the journalist seems
laved in the enumeration of politioal
misfits wbo are tendered for the position.
Il is not likely thai   either the (iovernor  or  the    imaginative   reporter
will presume upon the patience of the
electorate at nny great length.

THE FIRST FRUIT.
A labor flurry that created a pood
deal of excitement in the City was
soothed into quietness yesterday,
but there is an always prevailing
apprehension that it may blaze up
again at any time with or without
provocation. The drillers at work
on Victoria Street proceeded to
make an eight-hour day for themselves, without as much as a by-
your-leave, and on Tuesday knocked
off at four in the afternoon. The
next day, to cut the eight into
halves, they did not go to work
until an hour after the usual time
in the morning'. This was contrary
to their agreement with the corporation, and their action met with
very little sympathy anywhere.
Fortunately further trouble was
averted, and the men consented to
resume work on the old terms.
Ten months ago The Miner
warned the people of Nelson and
the Kootenays that a demon was
being raised that would not be laid
again without terrible cost to the
country, The eight-hour law for
underground miners was accepted
after a year of disastrous agitation,
the parties agreeing on a compromise basis. it was hoped this
would bring peace and content, and
to the miners affected by the law it
probably has. But in the meantime discontent took root and grew
in other walks of labor, and this
discontent has recently received
great encouragement. We do not
say that any man who works with
his hands should not have an eight-
hour day if he wishes it, But it is
B menace to those principles on
which our society is based, when a
question of that kind is to be settled
offhand at the mere will of any agitator who chooses to present himself.
There is little else to expect,
however, and we have ourselves invited it. The election of Mr.
Houston in Nelson, Mr. Green in
Slocan, and Mr. Curtis in Rossland
is a direct encouragement to labor
to make any demand it will. These
men may be extremely worthy individuals, high minded, honorable,
and patriotic; but the spirit abroad
is quick to understand from their
election that for tlte time at least il
is master and that il will make the
most of its opportunities. What is
this little flame in Nelson but the
smouldering embers of the late agitation, fanned into life again by the
result of those elections? And
who shall say when or where the
evils of it shall terminate, with
Greens, Curtises, and Houston! ever
ready to supply il with fuel?
pressed will  of the  people  in  the
election last Saturday.
We cannot believe that The
World has any authority to give
out a suggestion of this kind. The
recent vote was even more a condemnation of the arbitrary practices
of the Governor than of the Martin
Government. He cannot be so insensible as not to understand this,
and if he is so desperate as to treat
it with defiance he is bordering
dangerously close on insanity. The
one lesson of the election is that
there must be no more interference
from Mr, Melnnes. Theie are re-
potts that he has sent in his resignation. That is what any man in
his position would do who has not
completely parted with his senses.
But he may prefer to await his dismissal. The Ottawa Government
may not move with promptness,
and it is possible the present Lieutenant-Governor will have the privilege of inviting some successor to
Mr. Martin to form a Government
that will commend itself to a majority ol the House just elected.
The Opposition will meet in a
few clays. They comprise several
factions, but there is no reason to
suppose that they cannot unite on a
common policy and elect a leader
with following enough to support a
Government. When Mr, Martin
disappears it will be the duty of the
Lieutenant-Governor to call in this
new leader and no other. What
his personal prejudices or preferences may be is a matter of supreme
indifference to the people. He has
been warned to put his prejudices
and preferences in his pocket, and
to submit himself to the practices
that obtain under responsible government. There has been Melnnes
enough in British Columbia politics of the past two years, and
there is not the faintest intention on
the part of the people to tolerate
more of it. We doubt if there is a
man in the Province who realises
this more acutely than Mr. Melnnes
himself.
NOT UNLESS   HE   IS   CRAZY
The Vancouver World lias made
Ihe threat that the Lieutenant-Governor has to be reckoned with in determining tlie complexion of the
next Government. This can only
mean that His Honor will afford
Mr. Martin and his son an opportunity to patch up the present Cabinet if they can, or that he will disregard the wishes of ihe Opposition
and ignore the leader they may designate, or that he may intrigue
with others, or, in short, that he
may do anything that may occur to
his extremely whimsical and perverted mind as most agreeable to
himself, without regard  to  the rx-

The Grand Old Woman, as admirable in her way as Mr. Gladstone himself, is no more. She passed away quietly yesterday, while
wars and rumors of wars are absorbing nearly all of the public attention. But as the word circulates
throughout the British Empire,
there will be pause' enough from
the worries of the times to speak
words of praise of the long life well
and nobly spent.
We print a letter this morning
on the political situation that is
well worth all the time required to
read it over twice. The writer is
modest and refers to himself as an
obscure voter, but if we were permitted to publish his name his views
would take on additional value from
the reputation he bears in the community.  	
The Vancouver World speaks of
the position held by Governor Melnnes as the " viceroyship." The
World is losing what little common
sense has remained to it since it
went over in such a hurry to Mr.
Martin.

TROUBLE IS SETTLED.
Rock Men Will Not Have Their Eight
Hour Day.
Wlu'ii the aldermen rend their
Minora yesterday morning thoy were
very moon surprised to Und that certain inon employed by the city in taking ont'roek on Josephine uud Victoria
Streets had decided thut eight hours a
day was about all they could stand ai:d
nnd had consequently quit work on the
dny previous at 4 o'clock iu the afternoon.
Alderman Irvine, chairman ot the
Board of tho Hoard of Works, was particularly interested in the mutter and
immediately net out in search of tbe
Mayor. The best ho got iu thiB
direction was tbe information that
His Worship had left the city on the
morning train and was bound for Vancouver to take part in tho caucus to be
hald there ou Monday. Then ihe
nlderman went after his confreres in
tho cnuncil and found that they were
all iu favur of taking tho meu off the
work nt ouoe if tbey still refused to
work nine hours. As a consequence the
iiftoen men were laid off at Vi o'clock
with tbe Information that they would
remain out of work nutil they agreed
lo return at iil.S.") por day  for   a nine
hour day.
At this point James Wilks stepped
into the breach, and in this connection it is due Mr. Wilks to state that
The Miuer was incorrect in stating
yesterday that he was responsible for
the action of these stone workers. It
appears he was unaware of the aotion
taken by them until bo saw it in The
Miner yesterday. But to return to the
story. Mr. Wilks set out to investigate the uiattor and wound up by
culling upon Aid. Irvine in an effoit
to secure a settlement of the trouble.
As ono of the terms of settlement he
asked that the hammermen be granted
an eight-hour day, tho others to continue for nine hours. Aid. Irvine,
acting for the council, refused to consider auy such proposition. Mr. Wilks
ask ad the alderman if he did uot believe the oounoil would be willing to
grant an eight hour day for the hammer men, aud the alderman replied
that he believed the council wonld
vote as a unit against such a proposition. After further argument Mr.
Wilks admitted thnt the meu who had
been laid off had acted unwisely, and
said that it was very much like "riding 11 free horse to death." He went
furthor than this and agreed to see
thut the men returned to their work
at 7 o'olook this morning and remained until 6 o'olock, making a full nine
hours. Tbo result of the trouble is
tbat the men lost a half day's work
and failed to gain their poiut. Aid.
Irvine and his associates in tho council
are to be commended for their prompt
aotion.
Iloor wns occupied by Mr. and Mrs.
Nfedh.mi, whose furniture was quickly
removed to the street.
Fortunately the dimes were checked,
thus preventing the destruction of the
business block of the town. Ixniis
Bros, and all the adjoining places of
business carried their belongings to
places of safety, The loss, all told, was
about $2,000.

BRIEF LOCALS.
A   PROTEST.
Street Laborers Deny There was Any
concerted Movement.
In connection with the story published in yesterday's Miner the following letter has been received from
Mr, li. Payne, Financial Secretary of
the American Federation of Labor in
Nelson, and is cheerfully published:
Nelson, Juno llth, lOOO.
Editor of Daily Miner. : Sir.���In
yesterday's editiou of your paper you
stated tliat there is a certain move on
among thu laborers of the town who
contemplate calling for an eight hour
day for. all street work. Now, sir,
allow me to son trad lot you ou that
statement as thero is absolutely no
truth whatever in it. The laborers,
that is those working on the streets
are perfectly satisfied with nine hours
and have no Intention whatever of
asking for eight. Thoy are paid tho
rate of wages, aud work the spooilied
number Ol hours called for by the Labor-
era' Union for that, particular kind of
work. Trusting you will publish this
leltot for the benefit of that business
uiau and others who it may intnriist.
I am yours respectfully,
U. PAYNE, Fiu.-Seo.
Il   may bo   stated   in   regard to the
above   thai    tho   Miner's  source  of
informal ion. as to it probable demand
for ftn elfrllt-l]0_r day for all street
work, was a man who is at present
engaged on street work. This
mail made the statement thai
if the men working on rock
were given an eight-hour day that
the real of tho men wonld be entitled
to the same and would demand  it.
