THE CLOSING M
IN MANITOBA
IHI-Kll M.s TO THE  MINKH.)
Winnipeg,   July 11.��� The Manitoba
legislature was prorogued yesterday
afternoon by Lieutenant Governor Pat
terson with the following farewell
speech:
"Mr. Speaker and (lentlemen of the
Legislative Assembly���1 desire to eon
vey to you my   high   appreciation   of
the earnestness and   assiduity   which
you have devoted to your Parliamentary duties during this protracted session. Tlie attention of the public Is
still directed to the war In South Af
rlea, where many of our volunteers
are fighting in defence of the Hag and
Empire, and where, I am happy to
say, such marked successes have attended the liritisli arms that we have
reason to hope that peace will be attained In the nenr future. Although
1 deplore the war as much as any ore
I feel that it has done more than anything else possibly conld have done toward'drawing together the vii";o.is
parts of the British Empire and toward proving the loyalty of al! Her
Majesty's subjects. Irrespective of race
and creed, to her throne and person.
" The measures yoj have concurred
In passlngare important and useful.
The acts for the alteration and improvement of the law respecting elections, will, 1 hope.be found bciclicial
by removing the preparation of the vol-
ers' list from officer! appointed by the
Government of the day to those who
perform like duties for the several
municipalities and whose high characters will place their aetloes above
suspicion. Tlie question of the restoration of the liquor traffic, which you
have dealt witli, Is a most Important
oue and I trust that tlie measure
which has been passed will be found
to produce the best possible residts. I
thank you for the liberal provisions
which you have made for the require:
meats of the public service, and I confidently rely on the sums granted being expended wisely and economically.
"As you are doubtless aware the
period of my official connection with
tbe province of Manitoba is drawing
forward to its close ami that in all probability I am taking leave of you for
the lost time. Should this lie the
case, I desire to assure you that I shall
never forget the five years that I have
spent amongst you, or the kindness
and consideration with which I, as
Her Majesty's representative, have
been treated by all. I shall always
endeavor to be of service to the pro-
Tince, and I shall continue to cherish
feelings of the warmest solicitude for
the friends which I have left behind
when my term of office is over. In
taking leave of you for the present
I do so with an earnest wish for your
happiness and prosperity in your
several homes.''
tempted and consequently much importance was given to a formal reading
of the minority report.
Mr. Russell took Mr. Monk to task
for having promised to guard against
publishing the minority report before
it was presented to tlie House and
then permitting it being distributed to
a'I opposition papers in the country
next morning. This was done to
prejudice public opinion.
The House then divided on the
amendment of Mr. Monk's amendment by SO for to 71) against, majority
for the tlovcrnment of 3.1. Mr.
liourassa rose to move an amendment
to tlie effect that thc Imperial authorities supplied the soldiers with food,
and that it was a slur on tlreat' Britain to assume tiiat she did not know
how to take care of her soldiers by
sending emergency rations and that
the Minister of Militia should not
have pledged thc credit of the country
for these goods.
The Speaker ruled the motion out
of order. The House then divided on
the motion which was carried by ill)
for to ll.'l against majority for the
Government of 14. The House adjourned at 10 :i)S
boillcz Square, was quarantined today
by order of Dr. Laberge, health of-
llcer. The Im -lender was removed
from there Sunday last 111 and was
found to have small-pox. There arc
40 or So guests In the house and
none will leave without being fvul-
gated and vaccinated. Among those
detained are several westerners bound
for the Paris Exposition who
were to leave tomorrow on the Lake
Champlaln.

CANADIANS IN DANCER.
Presbyterian* of Canada Have Many
Missionaries In Hunan. CMna.
Toronto, duly 11.���As is well lenown
the Presbyterian church In Canada
has a large number of missionaries in
the Province of Hunan, China, a'"'
conside-able anxiety is felt with reference to these. A cable from Che
Koo, via London. Knglaud, on 'July 2,
reported mat the missionaries were
making their way to the coast from
the northern provinces, and that the
i steamer sent out by the American and
other Consuls at Che Poo had arrived
at Che Poo on Saturday last with 73
refugees, couip-ising :i:i Ame-icans, 2\>
English and 10 Canadians from Hunan
and Shan Tung, that others were coming to the coast, for whom another
steamer had been sent, and that the
Japanese had offered Japanese transports to convey tlie missionaries and
others to Japan. Rev. Dr. Warden,
Tuesday, cabled to the American Consul at Che Koo asking for definite intelligence regarding the Canadian missionaries. No reply thus far has lieen
received. It is hoped that no disaster
has occurred to any of the Presbyterian
missionaries from Canada.
THE OTTAWA HOUSE.
Monk Continues the Debate on the
Emergency Rations.
Ottawa, Ont., July fl.���In the House
yesterday Mr. Monk continued the
debate on the emergency rations after
3 o'clock. He spoke of the ini]>ort-
ance of good emergency food for
soldiers In South Africa and declared
that the stuff supplied hy the Military
Department from Dr. Devlin was
worthless. He snid that the Minister
of Militia ought to have taken into
consideration and acted upon the
letter of Yatch. Mr. Monk also suggested that the (lovernment should
have sent to the troops the analysis
by MacFarlane.
Mr. Russell rose to reply but Mr.
Casgrain and others called for tbe
speaker to read tlie minority report
which Mr. Monk had just presented
to the House. The Speaker agreed
and It took over half an hour to do so.
Mr. Russell In reply said that he was
not surprised that Mr. Casgrain should
have insisted on a formal reading of
the report which would bring the
House back to a proper consideration
of the subject that was before it.
One wonld look in vain for thc charges
in Mr. Monk'sspeech, that he made in
tlie first Instance of gross and culpable negligence against the Minister of
Militia. The odium which Monk
tried to fasten upon the Minister
ot Militia, who had shown that his

New York, July B.���Dr. Httlsey, of
the Hoard of Foreign Missions of the
Presbyterian Church, has received
word from Che Foo.    Tlie cable reads:
"Che Foo, July 5.���Hodges, Sims-
coxes and Taylor at l'ao Ting Fu.
Lowric is at Tien Tsin. Millers are
In Corca. None left Pekin. Shan
Tung missionaries are safe. (Signed.)
"Elterloh."
"This means," said Dr. Ilalsey,
"that Dr. Cortlandt, Vanrenseller,
Hodges and his wife, Dr. Taylor and
the Rev. Simcoxes and wife are at
Pao Ting Fu, and have not mad
their escape. The Rev. J. Lowrie has
escaped from Pao TingFu and is now
at Tien Tsin and the Rev. J. A. Miller
and Mrs. Miller have escaped and
gone to Core*.
"The next statement Is Important as
it indicates that the Pin missionaries
are still in Pekin, The final part of
the message Is still more important,
as it shows that all the missionaries,
some sixty In nnmbei
Teg dist let are safe.
Toronto, July fl.���Dr. Warden last
night issued an official statement as
to the position of thc large number
of Canadian missionaries of tbe Presbyterian Church in China. He directs
attention to the cables from Che
Foo on Monday, announcing that the
steamer sent out by the consuls to
gather refugees had arrived at Che
Foo on Saturday last with 73 refugees

LE ROI SELLING WELL.
Recent Isaue of Stock Proves to
Most Successful.
Montreal, July fl,��� C. R. Hosraor ai-.
rived home yesterday from a two
months' trip to Europe. As to the
financial outlook Mr. Hosmer found
that money is growing easier and the
English investor Is open to purchase
any first class gtlt-edge Canadian investment i hut might be offered him.
He understood that the recent issue of
stock of tlie Le Roi, which mine Is
next to the War Eagle and Centre
Star, was successful. In fact he had
received a cablegram yesterday morning to the effect that it was selling in
London at 2 1-4 per cent premium.
Mr. Hosmer believes the English investor would buy the best class of
IhitiHh Columbia mines if they were
offered to him on a fair basis.
MET WITH SUCCESS.

Melbourne Stanley, aged 10 and 13 respectively, sons of Samuel Stanley of
Guthrie, were killed by lightning
shortly before 7 o'clock yesterday
morning. Lightning struck tbe barn
roof and running down knocked out
tlie sash i n the stable beneath. From
the position in which they were found
it appears that the boys were looking
out of the window at tlie storm. Evidently Leslie Was killed instantly and
Melbourne lived but a short time.

Bonded to York and Lancashire Syndicate.
The York and Lancashire Syndicate
is a late ompany to enter into the
mining field at Nelson, having acquired through Mr. T. (1. Procter a bond
on the Ophir Mine, situated on Bird
C eck.
When Mr. Procter returned from
London a short while ago he announced ilia, he had been successful In
Hurling a new miu'-ng company that
would br'ng a good deal of money Into the Province. The deal in question
was the bonding of the Ophir to tie
above con.pony.
Mr. Procter lias given a contract
to P. J. Henr,; to sink the p eient
shaft another fifty feet and cross-
cutting will be done us soon as that
wo. k is finished with a view of establishing the main lead. Some of
the ore which has already b.-en ;aken
f -oin the mine has given retu-nB of
over g:!00 which proves It to be a
firs,.-class p ope.ty. The o.e is of a
friable, freemi'ling character and
the.e is no douot tne property will be
one of the best paying concerns in thc
Province.
Mr. Proctor had also token a bond
on the Dm nmer property for another
syndicate, and extensive preparations
were under way to work tlie property.
However, after a great deal of development work had been done, and
over Slots) spent in tunneling and
cross-cutting it was discovered that
the returns would by no means come
up to tiie values anticipated so the
bond was given up and the property
released.

PREPARE TO
HEAR THE WORST
(BY   A SHIM I VII. I)   I'll I INS.,
London, July 6.���In response to an
enquiry cabled to Shanghai in regard
to the situation at Pekin thc following cablegram has been received from
an authority:
"Shanghai, July 5,���Prepare to hear
the worst.''
POSITION HOPELESS.
Tien Tsin, June 80, via Che Poo and
Shanghai, July S.���Ths best Informed
authorities in Tien Tsin considered
the position of the foreigners in Pi-kin
as almost hopeless. It Is useless to
attempt to force the way with the
troopers now available. Commanders
are willing to resort to desperate
means, but to attempt a forced march
from Tien Tsin sufficient with the
forces at hand means certain destruction to the army, besides the slaughter of the civilians left at Tien Ts'n.
Sufficient soldiers nre necessary to defeat the Chinese army, maintain communication with the base of supplies
and guard the hospitals enroute. The
water supply is an important problem
In a country furnishing no other
sources of water but river wells, which
are now being poisoned.
The Chinese are committing terrible
atrocities upon thc wounded and ore

irto tbeir hands, (leneral Tung Fuh
Sang w'th ten thousand of the best
disciplined troops in thc C.iinese

regiments of General Nieh'scommard,
North of Tien Tsin, arc reported to

the country. Residents declare fiat

by peaceable Chinese, who hate been
the greatest sufferers owing to tlie
fore'gn soldiers burning the outskirts
of Tien Tsin to deprive the enemy of
shelter,
BOXERS LOOTING.
The Boxers are destroying ont'ying
villages for loot and the smoke of a
hundred fires can be Been in every direction. Tien Tsin was not bombarded today for the first time in a fortnight, and families are returning to
their homes within the concessions.
Women and children who nre returning to tbeir homes will be sent to Taku
as soon as the travel is safe.
No unfriendly Chinamen are visible
in the street. A few of the richest,
with their families, are huddled, badly frightened, in the outhouses for
protection. Others, concealed in various houses, shoot ot the Europeans
on tho streets. The Chinese dead'
about Tien Tsin number thousands.
Most of those who have been killed
lie nnburled in fields. The river to
Taku is full of floating bodies and
many have been washed up by the
tide.
Captain MeCalla ond Major Waller
arc the most popular at Tien Tsin.
Their men arp placed at the head ol
every movement. By common consent
the British are close behind them.
The foreigners in Tein Tu declare,
however, that they owe their lives to
the Russians without whom their
small detachments must have been
overwhelmed on that dark Wednesday
when the Chinese were pressing on
every Bide and the bravest men were
abandoning hope. The Russian com-
mnnder, Colonel Wosack, arranged
tbe main body with the civilians to
make a sortie in the direction of
Taku.
He left four hundred Russians to
defend thc city and engaged the attention of the Chinese, the intention
being for the party to Intentionally
sacrifice themselves. The arrival of
thc Americans saved the day. Their
arrival proved a complete Surprise,
The hero of Tien Tsin is James
Watts, a young Englishman, perhaps
the best rider in China, who with
three Cossacks ran the gauntlet to Taku
with messages for reinforcements,
charging through the village under
fire. Several foreign commanders
have recommended the quartette to be
decorated.
NEW HORRORS.
London, July o.��� There is a ma��s of
wild rumors from the Far East, and
though so contradictory on most
points, they continue unanimous as lo
the consummation of the tradegy at
l'ekin. To the continued reports of
the massuere of the whites are now
added the additional rumors that the
savage soldiers butchered at the Capital
five thousand native Roman Catholics
converts. This comes ln a Shanghai
despatch of July Sth, which only adds
to the reports given by the respectable
Chinese, who have arrived from
Chiango Fo and who descrlla- Pekin
as an Inferno In whioh the streets
literally run with blood.
They confirm the numerous stories
of executions and the untold horror
Buffered by the Isolated foreigners and
the European soldiers captured by the
mob. The authority of Yung Lu, the
Chinese Imperial Treasurer, who advocated moderation, was completely
effaced by Prince Tuan, who IssUeil
fresh edicts ordering the merciless extermination of all the foreigners lu
the Empire.
UNDER TERRIBLE FIRE.
Sir Robert Hart's Runner Tells of the
Conditions at Pekin.
London, July ��.���Sir Robert Hart's
ri-'ine-, who was Interviewed'by the
Correspondent of the Associated Press
at Shanghai, supplemented the tragic
sentences of the despatch he bore In reference to the destruction of the
fore'gn by a narrative of somethings
lie saw. He says the fo -eigners were
making a last stand in tlie extensive
buildings and enelosu.es of the British
Legation. They had inaiu_dc,id and
wonnded, Among them were many
women and children. All were short
of fixid, even (o the commonest neees-
sitlcs. T.ie women were .-carving, as
they gave a small allowance to the
children. The foreigners nevertheless
were holding out under a terrible fire,
u__e!d by the hourly expectation of
relief. They knew they would not be
abandoned, and that the. armies of
their governments were advancing.
Somet'mes tiny thought they could
hear attillery in action before the
wall.
They were unable to return the fire
of the Chinese, e::cept nt momenta
when an assau't seemed Imminent.
Then the machine guns and repeating
rifles to.e the storming parties to
pieces. Thc messenger expretsed the
belief that it would be impossible for
the foreigners to resist much lunger
as the Cnlnese were preparing to batter down the walls of the court yard,
and the defenders' ammunition was
running low. Orders were given by
IVnee Tuan. the messenger said, that
since some bad been killed, notanoth-
er foreigner should be left alive. The
Chinese soldiers were expected to sacrifice their lives without hesitation, If
by so doing they could help exterminate the "Yang kuic tse."
"Extreme precautions had lieen taken
to prevent tlie foreigners from communicating with anyone outside the
city, and a number of runners who
had been sent out had la-en killed by
the Chinese, The messenger succeeded In getting through hy smearing his face and clothes with blood
and joining in the outcry against tlie
"foreign devils. " He passed the remains of foreigners of Admiral Seymour's   force   who   had    been   killed
between Langfang and Lofu,    Their
bodies had la-en cut to pieces and   tile
heads carried at the end  of   bamboos.

D. J.  BEATON, Editor and  Manager
IMPERIAL KECII'UOCITY.
Mr. Ritchie, President of the British
Board of Trade, gave the   delegates to
the Association of tlie Chambers of
Commerce something to think over a
few days ago. He expressed the belief that the days of the Manchester
Free Trade school were passing. Such
rank heterodoxy naturally created snr-
rise. aud murmurs of dissent mingled
witli applause from all parts of the
hall. Mr. Ritchie explained that he
did uot think It would be advisable to
depart from the old established policy
of free trade, but he believed that a
preference shor'd be given tne colonies
aud that piddle feeling was veering
around In that direction, Evidently
the conviction is growing In England
that a system of preferential trade
within the Empire would not be inconsistent with the policy which is
now worshipped as a sort of fetich.
Sir Charles Tupper has never advocated more than this, but for doing
Bo much he has come iu for a good
share of abuse. As long ago as the .1 ubi -
lee year Lord Salisbury and two of his
most distinguished colleagues ill the
Government had expressed themselves
favorably   In   regard   to the proposal
of a preferential arrangement, but
when Sir Wilfrid Laurier visited
London he spilled the fat in the fire
by announcing that Canada wus grate-
ful and generous and would give a
preference without asking anything
In return. This was grand news for
the British, who never turn their
backs on a good bargain, but it was
poor business from the Canadian point
of view.
The question is not one of mere bargain,   however.     Great    Britain   can
well afford to   remain   content   with
tlie  one-sided   arrangement    that at
present exists.    She is given a preference in  the   Canadian   markets,   and
nothing has lieen exacted    in    return.
As a bargain pure and simple that   is
as satisfactory as it can he.   But there
are statesmen who sec   over   and   beyond the mere trade   advantage of It.
They recognise that there   is   a political as well as a com rcrcia! aspect, and
one of splendid promise.    The Empire
canbe consolidated and strengthened iu
a wonderful manner by giving the Colonies a preference in the home market.
Can any of   us   realise   all   it  would
mean tn Canada if   in   the   one article
of breadstuffsalone the Mother Country
were to give evrn so slight a preference
as a shilling a quarter on   wheat?    It
would mean the rapid filling up of the
unsettled   regions   of   the   Dominion,
and the Steady growth of Canada into
a Power that the world would have to
reckon with.    We are no mean ally of
the Mother Country  today,   but   with
our population trebled or  quadrupled
we wonld   inspire  a  confidence   that
Would   mean   much   to   the    Empire.
This happy condition can he hastened
by.a policy of reciprocity   within, the
Empire.

man to   tbe   nominee   of  the   Kansas
City convention.
