Lack of Organization Seems
Cause for the Great
Loss of Life on
the 13th.
(BY ASSOCIATED  l'Hi:S. ,|
New York, July 21.���Tlie Evening
World publishes n detailed story of
the Tien Tsin fight. It conies from
Frederick I'almer and bus been copy-1
righted by the paper. It reads as follows:
"Che Koo, July 1��, via Shanghai,
July 21.���The attack on the native
city of Tien Tsin, on July 13, resulted
lu the narrowest escape from what
seemed up to midnight would be a
terrible disaster for the allies.
"The Russians were to take the forts
near the native oity well and the other
allies the oity itself. (Ienernl Tuku-
shlna, the Japauese commander, promised that the Japanese engineers, after
three hours' shelling from all their
guns, would cross the bridge over the
moat before the wall, and. blowing up
the great south gate, make a breach
for the Infantry to enter.
"Upon this depended everything, i
General Tukushinn had not scouted
the bridge and in 84 hours bad not
scouted tbe ground over which Uncharge on the bridge had to be made,
The Chinese destroyed the bridge and
-flooded the land around .it. The Allies' shell Are in no wise subdued the
��� Chinese rifle Arc from the loop-
holed wall, which was thirty feet
high with a moat twenty feet deep
around it. An outer wull of mud
made it impossible for the Infantry
and marines coining up the Held to
reply to the Chinese. They lost 50
men in 10 minutes, then rushed bach
from the mud wall which they had
reached.
SPIRITED ADVANCE.
(leneral Dorwnrd, the liritisli
ei un mantle r, hastened forward with a
fragmentary instead of an Intergral
skirmish line. The American marines
and the Welch Fusileers, together under the command of Waller, advanced
on the extreme left, then the British
marines, French and Japanese advanced
along the road towurd the gate on the
mid wall. Dorward's plan for the
Americans to support the Japanese
woe not made clear to Colonel Liseoin
of the Ninth United States Infantry.
"Dorward lays the blame for the
blunder and sacrifice of life on Lis-
com, but Howard's chief of staff was
heard to say when I.iseom moved ���
"(Jet In down the road anywhere
quickly." Colonel I.iseom hurriedly
led his men through the gate in as
open order ns possible. Tbey were
Immediately under fire. The stall'
saw them pass over the bridge leading
to a field which proved to be a eul de
snc.    Before  the   two    battalions   of
Americans, numbering 480 men, could
extend themselves they were Subjected, besldeR thc fires from the loop
holes in the fort, to a fierce Hie
from the embrasures in a. Hue of fortified mud houses iu their Sank,
"Three thousand rifles probably
were turned on them with nn accuracy
which has amazed every other officer
among the allies. The blue shirts of
the American troops made them distinct marks where thc khaki uniforms
of the other allies could not be seen.
The Americans chnrged into the Hank
fire with rushes. The ground over
which they charged was marshy and
lined with ditches. It was evidently
Colonel Liseum's intention to rush
the houses from which the flank Are
was coming and thus get a position
for flanking the Wall.
LISCOM KILLED.
At 12:30 the line had jnst reached
the shore of the canal with thirty
yards separating them from tin
houses, when thc color hearer fell.
Colonel Liseoin picked up the Oolors
and stood looking around, apparently
for a ford. The next instant a sharpshooter's bullet went through the
brave Colonel's abdomen.
"All day long the Allies' line lay
under any cover the men could find.
running out of ammunition. The July
���
sun wns beating down on tbem and
they had nothing to , drink but the
salty marsh water. Meanwhile the
wounded came struggling and crawling through the gate in the mud wall,
There was no order. They were sent
anywhere without men to carry the
litters. The doctors were hit by the
sharpshooters while trying to attend
the Wounded of the Ninth. Tbey could
not attempt to curry off the wounded
from the bluntly Held.
"At l o'olook General Tnkushlna reported In writing to Dorward that
the Japanese were in the city. I etiuld
see the loopholes blazing bullets and
lyddite shells. No infantry could
charge in the face of this lire from 2
o'clock to 5, Though acting eojointly
neither Dorward or Taknshina knew
each other's whereabouts, Under
cover of the darkness the men of the
Ninth crept back from their dangerous position, bearing their wounded,
They executed this movement with a
loss of one man killed,

FOR VALOR.
One of the most touching incidents
of the war in South Africa occurred
this week, when Captain Towse received the first Victoria Cross Bestowed by the Queen for valor in the veldt.
Captain Towse earned the distinction
by attempting to carry off Colonel
Downman, who had been wounded
under a hail uf bullets. He was unable to do so, and lay beside him and
kept off the lloers all night till help
came. Hy that time Colonel Down-
man was dead and Captain Towse was
blinded iu both eyes by n bullet
wound.
On Wednesday Captnin Towse wns
taken to Windsor and led into the
Itoyal presence by his wife, where
he knelt nt the feet of his Sovereign,
who was so much overcome at the
sight of the blind hern that her aged
hands cnuld scarcely pin on the most
prized of all liritish decorations.
The Queen's word- of simple praise
of his gallantry and thanks for his
devotion were spoken so low as to be
almost inaudible and when Queen
Victoria wns led out there wus
scarcely a dry eye among the officials
present.
CANADIANS PRAISED.
The Marquis of Lansdowne, Minister of War. referring in the House of
Lords to Lord RobertB' telegram announcing the death of two young Canadians, Lieutenants Hoi-den aud
Birch, in defending lho liritish position iu the engagement on July in,
paid a glowing tribute to the Canadian volunteers, saying:
" When we think who writes thai
and of the feelings with which lie
must have written it, I think we may
say no more touching tribute could be
paid to the memory of the brave representatives  of our Colonial   forces."
The Earl of Carrington compared
the patriotism of the Colonies to un
Australian underground river, that
disappeared iu the bowels of the
earth, came up again and rushed onward in a mighty torrent to the
ocean. It would always be so, the
Karl continued, if perfect equality
were  preserved   between   the   liritish
Colonial troops.

He had taken one view froni a rock
which projected Borne distance into

hissing und boiling iu its mad rush
down stream and he was very careful
in picking his way, with camera in
hand, from ruck to rock in order to
secure another view. It was a rough
spot, however, and he slipped. He
tried to save himself, but without
avail. In an Instant he was struggling in Hie stream. He let his camera
go ami ben! every effort toward reaching shnre. Hut the water was more
powerful than Hie man. strong swimmer though he was. Two and three
times it pulled him down several
feet below the surface. He was
almost exhausted when he was thrown
with great force against a log. lie
clung tn it with all the strength of a
drowning man and   gradually worked
his way shoreward.   In the meantime
his friends had secured a bunt and
were making every effort to reach
him. They dared not venture into
the rapids but kept as close to Mr.
Munroe as tbey oould with safety.
Finally the log drifted close to tho
boat uml the almost drowned man
was seized and pulled aboard, He
came tn Nelson on the lirst train,
still in bis wet clothes, and suffering

coming in contact with thc log.

THE  CHINESE   TROUBLE,
���d
dad
As the civilised world, fot the past
month or mure, lias lieen in great distress nf mind over the safety ot Hie
Legations in Pekin, it is not surprising tlmt Hie message from Minister
Conger should lie severely critic!
before neeepted as conveying the g
tidings that they are still holding mil
and with hope of rescue, Only a few
days ago we had circumstantial accounts of the slaughter uf all the
Europeans in l'ekin. and to he told
now, in the faee uf these and after a
longisilence that in itself could only
portend death, that the situation is
still hopeful naturally challenges
doubt and sets us to balancing probabilities, The popular mind in London
refuses to lie comforted, and the same
can be said of llerliu. The genuineness of the Conger dispatch is not
doubted, but it is thought to lie one
of a sheaf of old ones which some
Chinese ollicial has selected to prolong
the mystification. Considering that
the obscurity it is intended to clear
up is so many weeks old, it is not improbable that this message of relief
may be the subject of anxious doubts
and speculations for several days to
come.
It is all evidence of a most unhappy
situation. If the prevailing suspicion
in London and Berlin is the correot
one, that the Chinese authorities are
playing a double part, not only the
position of the foreigners in l'ekin is
a most critical one. but the Powers
are confronted with the prospect of a
nutted and desperate China, resolved
to preserve its isolation at any cost.
That is not a prospect that is to be
regarded lightly. The Immediate con
cern.   however,   is   the   safety of   the
Legations, ami of the many valuable
lives that have been committed to
tbeir protection. Happily there is
corroborative evidence that the undated message of Minister Conger was
dispatched on the 18th inst.. and if
the Legations were safe then they
may yet he relieved. And more important still, if safe then the suspicion
of official treachery at the Chinese
Capital must be dispelled. If the
authorities are employing their I
endeavors to protect the besieged
Europeans, their success so far may
be taken as an indication that they
can make it complete, and it means
also that the disturbance will not
prove as dceprootcd or as widespread
as some of the European Capitals
see m tu fear.
to fortify his position be construed
our Militia Act to say that Canadian
soldiers were for use at home only
and could not he sent out of the country. There was a great ontery over
this, and the artful gentleman Baw at
once how unpopular his attitude was,
and hastened to right about face with
an alacrity that would shame our best
drilled volunteers, Mr. Tarte merely
sulked. Sir Wilfrid knew better. He
was wearing a British title which his
heart had coveted, and for which he
wus bound to show some gratitude,
and ho had the grace to remember
that he was Premier of a British Col-
ny. IIiH natural feelings carried
hiiu with Mr. Tarte iu the first Instance, but hiB   cunning   turned   him
bout and made him more liritish
than the British themselves. He
loubtless saved many votes, but whether he has saved his Government remains to be Been.
AN   ALARMED   ORGAN.
On the principle of the old French
maxim, The Victoria Times is licensing the Federal Qovernment by excusing it. It is defending it against,
the imaginary charge that in sentiment and Influence it is I'rencli-
Oftnadlan rather thun Anglo.Saxon.
There Is a disturbing fear that the
people will so regard it. and that
when the time comes there will
be votes lost in consequence. We
have   not   observed   a   disposition on
the part of the Conservative press to
draw this distinction, although pains
have been taken tu expose   the   ilidis
crutlons of   Mr.    Tarte--indiscretions
both    of  sp li   and   of   action, and
which have been most distasteful to
the vast body of the Canadian people
who desire thut this Dominion shall
bo regarded   as   a   Britisli   possession
nnd Imbued wilh unmistakable British sympathies.
Mr. Tarte is scarcely more French
In feeling than Is the Premier himself, hut he Is much more offensive in
the display of It. The Premier Is
more artful. Be may not always succeed In hiding his sympathies, but  he
Invariably reoognlses the expediency
of explaining them away when they
hnve. become so obtrusive ns to challenge attention, We bad un Instance
of this In connection with ||���. ,|,,.
spntch of that first contingent ,���
tiouth Africa. Mr. Tarte was not
British enough t��� _,.,���\ Cauadlan
troops to th. dofenee of the Empire
In that, far-off region, ami be had no
difficulty In persuading Sir Wilfrid
Laurier to agree with bim. The
Premier declared In   so  many  words
Everybody rejoices over   the   swelling exports  of   tlie   Dominion, which
are taken   as evidence   of   very great
prosperity.    We  do   not   know, how
ever, what   honest  purpose   it is sup
posed to serve by comparing them with
those of 1898, !��B   is   done   in a statement sent out   from Ottawa and put
lished in   to-day's   Miner.    There has
been n tremendous expansion of trade
within the past four or five years, not
only in Canada but in all the growing
countries   of  the   world, and   it   h
been no greater with   us  than it  has
been elsewhere.   Canada has shared in
the general prosperity, and that is all
thai can be saiil of   it.    While everybody rejoices,   nobody   of   sense   and
honesty is foolish enough to   think or
say that it is due   to   Liberal administration at Ottawa. aBthc party wire
puller evidently intended to convey In
making comparison   with   the figures
of four years ago.
Before the gentleman who has been
appointed to enforce the "fair-wage
resolution on Public Works contracts
visits Nelson, it might be a fitting
thing if the Minister in charge of
that Department gave effect to the
intention of Parliament in voting an
appropriation for a Public building
in this City. Mr. o'Donoghue cannot
see that a fair wage is being paid
until the men are engaged, and thc
men will not likely be engaged until
thc contract is let and the work is
actually in aight. Our (iovernment at
Ottawa are getting tilings wrong end
first.

THE   MINERAL   ACT.
Mr. Macdonald Gives a Fow Reasons for
Amondlno  tha Act.
Editor of The Miner���Sir: The
editorial columns of The Tribune
this morning are devoted to an outcry ngninstthe Legislature in anyway
tampering with the Mineral Aet as it
now stands.
While the motive, for this is no
doubt the fear of touching the sore
8pot of the Eight-Hour Law, 1 am
sure thnt if the writer's duties required him to construe this Act, he
would welcome an overhauling that
would render it intelligible.
The Act as it is, is a patchwork
without cohesion or design. Look at
the interpretation clauses at the beginning. "Mineral" is defined as
meaning certain specified minerals
and combinations of minerals, yet in
the body of the Act reference is made
in various places tu "minerals within
the meaning of this Act (excepting
coal)." Now coal is not one of the
minerals within the meaning of the
Act, therefore why except it?
Look at the grammatical construction of the clause defining "Rock in
place" and say whether a small boy's
essay could excel it in confusion of
idea's. Again, "Mineral claim" shall
mean the personal right of property
or interest in any mine; and yet nowhere throughout tbe Act, so far ns I
have been able to find, nre the words
"mineral claim" UBed to signify a
"right" ut nil, but menu simply a
plot of lnnd.
Thus, in Section 111, "A mineral
Claim shall be marked by two legal
posts,'' or in Section 80, "The surface
of such claim." It is clear that in
drawing this clause the meaning nf
the term is confused with the nature
of the owner's tenure.
Is it nny wonder that the rights of
parties under this Act are diffioult to
ascertain when that part of it upon
which its whole interpretation rests is
in such a state of bewilderment.
The (Iovernment will be entitled to
the gratitude of all who are interested
in the mining industry if this Act
can be remodelled so that lie who runs
may read.        R. M. MACDONALD.
July 20.
BANFF'S POPULARITY.
It  Is  Attractlnd   Moro  Travelers Than the
Yellowstone.
It may not generally be known that
in the Canadian Rockies, says The
National Dark Gazette, is a more
popular resort than the Yellowstone;
yet such is the case. Notwithstanding
that the praises of the latter have lieen
published in all quarters; that it embraces one of the most picturesque
regions in the United States; that its
climatic conditions are supposed tn bo
exceptionally line; that it is within
easy access of many large cities ami
densely populated communities, or
that there is expended on it yearly
more than twenty times the amount
spent on this park, it is gratifying
and speaks volumes fnr Banff that the
number of people who visit this park
is In excess of the Yellowstone. A
good index or thc travel in the two
parks may be seen in the number of
visitors registered annually nt the
hotels of the two respective resorts.
Here are the comparative figures for
the past five years:
Yenr. Yellowstone.   Banff
1895  2,47(1 4,934
18911  2.408 3,Will
1897  4,87(1 ..,087
1898  2.207 5,537
IHO  3.(137 7.3S7
With this continually increasing
travel will come a more Intimate
knowledge of the country at large,
and Cnnuda, thc land of Thule, will
be knowu as she is.
A   COMPARISON.
The Winnipeg Free Press contains
the following: "It Is nearly a quarter
of a century since Lord llutlV. ill made
hit memorable trip to Manitoba, and
almost two decades have elapsed since
tlie time the Marquis of Lome crossed
the continent. To reach Manitoba Lord DulVerin was compelled to paHs through the United
States territory, arriving at Winnipeg by the now abandoned Red River
stern-wheel steamboat, Lord Lome
reached the capital nf tin- Prairie
Province without leaving the Dominion, but the journey by tills, route
Involved several portages between
_____ Superior and Manitoba, and a
long detour by the waterways through
the Lake of the Woods region. Lord
Minto will make the trip between
Ottawa and Winnipeg in less than
two days in comfort and security,"

ABOUT  THE   BALL GROUNDS.
Mr. Waterman  Criticised I'or His [Action In
Connection Therewith.
The following letter has been handed
to The Miner for publication:
Editor of The Miner: 1 would like
tt) ask by what authority Mr, Charleti
A. Waterman undertakes to Hiring
canvas at the fence around the ball
parks and also tar the roofs of the
buildings in the vicinity. The city
granted him permission i<�� build a
fenge about the park, and this Burely
should have been enough. Any rrsi-
ilfiit oi Nelson lias a perfect ri^iit to
demand and secure admission io the
ball grounds without paying a cent,
and a like right to look Into the
grounds from a hill or a roof. To my
mind the oity is allowing Mr, Waterman to go entirely too far and   a hall
should be called. The gentleman
should be reminded Ln some forceful
way that there are others in Nelson,
If he persists in acting as lie is nt
present he will Iind that he has gone
too far.    There are   people   in Nelson
who cannot afford to pay for admission to tlie grounds and who huve a
perfect right to witness all that goes
on in the grounds. If they are willing to look in from the outside they
Bhould certainly be permitted to do so.
"One Who 1'ays His Way."
In regard to the purse for the foot-
hall tournament, recently held at Slocan City, in which Nelson was a competitor, the slocan Drill has the following: "A meeting was held in the
Arlington Motel on Friday afternoon
to decide what to do with the citizens'
purse of s-tH) subscribed for the football tournament on the 12th, Many
suggestions were offered, one advanced by Neil Goth ing being that the
money be  divided   among   the  three
outside teams in cijuat proportions to
pay their expenses, The tinalc. however, was that the Silverton ami Nelson tennis he given a chance to play
against, the home team for the  money
on tlie nub. Wires were accordingly
Bent to these clubs, inviting them to
appear. Nelson in reply saidno, while
Silverton could not get their team together. The money was handed over
tt�� the slocan Football Club.
