A VIOTORY.
London, Aug. 14���The liritisli Uov-
ernmont today received from Che l*'oo,
under date of Aug. 1*. Ueneral Uase-
lee's' brief despatches deBcrlbtng the
capture of Pletsarig in gallant Btyle.
Describing the fighting at Yang Tumi,
he Hays: "After ascertaining that the
enemy held the railway embankment
we formed for the attack with the
Americans on our right and the Kussians on our extreme left. After u
rapid advance of nearly three miles,
during which tliey were under a hot
shell and rifle fire, our troops carried
the lirst line of defence in line style.
We arc now encamped on the left hank
of the Pel llo near the railway bridge
over the I'ei llo. Casualties about 50
killed.
(IIY ASSOCIATED PBBSS.)
London, Aug. 15���Roar Admiral
Bruce telegraphing from Taku to the
liritish Admiralty says: Have received the following from the Ueneral
at llo Si Wu, August 10���The troops
are distant 21 miles from l'ekin. Experienced little Opposition. A position
was prepared by the enemy but as the
Allies advanced they lied. The Tartar Cavalry was charged hy two squadrons of Bengal Lancers. Many of thc
former were killed. The standards of
Generals Ma and Sung were captured,
The troops are much exhausted by the
heat but their health and spirits are
otherwise excellent, A second despatch dated Ho si Wu, August ll.
says: "The advance may be somewhat
delayed as rain is falling."
Official  confirmation of objections
to landing troops at Shanghai has
been received at the Foreign Office
here, bnt owing to Lord Salisbury
and Blair being in the Vosges Mountains, nothing definite can be
done from London until instructions
are received. Lord Salisbury has been
telegraphed, The allies have almost
certainly arrived at l'ekin even
though rain has been falling. Advices
received from the liritish Commander
at the front through Rear Admiral
Bruce give reasonable assurance that
the 27 miles has since beeu covered.
OBJECT TO THE LANDING.
London, Aug. 15.���Transports   witli
liritisli   troops   arrived   in   Shanghai
Roadstead   Tuesday.     The   Viceroy
protested to Admiral Seymour against
the lauding of the troops, and according to a Shanghai cablegram despatched at midnight, Admiral Seymour wired to his (iovernment for
instructions as to how he should act.
The britisli residents of Shanghai are
Indignant and attribute the Viceroy's
action to intrigues on the part
of the French and Russian Consuls.
Ton Tal Sheng's American adviser,
Mr. Fcrgusson, who had been eritiscd
hy the press and by Americans ton
his continued relations with Chinese
ollieials, has resigned aud his resignation has been accepted. An English
correspondent, sending the information to the Associated Press from
Shanghai, says: "The intimacy of
American ollieials with Sheng has
heen remarked hy Englishmen."
It is reported from Hong Kong, under date of Aug. i;tth, that the sea
going monitor Montcrry will go to
Canton in a few days to relieve the
American cruiser I>onjuan de Austriala
The Chinese aver that the chances are
ten to one that the lloguct forts will
Ire on the monitor as the authorities
are suspicious of foreign designs. The
activity of the Chinese military authorities at Canton are most pronounced. Foreigners there think they pcr-
eleve preparations for action of some
sort. They dislike the presence of
Chinese troops in the foreign settlement and fear that the slightest indiscretion will   add   to   the   bloodshed
FROM PEKIN.
London, Aug. 15.���A despatch from
one of the l'ekin .Ministers says: "If
the negotiations prevent tlie march
of the allied troops, which
arc our only satisfaction, we risk

Legation is occupied hy Imperial

either a blow or a fall. In cross-examination, thc witncHS said that owing to thi' advanced decomposition he

Apoplexy might have resulted from a
fall, while tlie fracture of thc skull
was caused by blows.
Mrs. McFarland, mother of Mary
Mel''arl:ind,said she was at Sifton'son
the morning of the accident and the
prisoner stated to her that he was going over to his fathers to fix a hay
truck, and that if his father was not
already married he wonld put him so

Winnipeg. Man., Aug. 15���Representatives of the allied mechanics
were yesterday in consultation
with Mr. Cross and Mr. Orde, representatives of the C. I'. R. All that
has been agreed upon between
company's representatives and
men was today submitted to tlie latter
in writing and is now being considered by the men. If any further hitch
occurs Messrs. Orde and Cross will
enter into negotiations with the boll-
ermakers and machinists' representatives, and then with a continuation of
favorable results the whole matter
will be submitted to Manager Whyte
and (leneral Superintendent Obornc
for filial settlement. The mechanics'
representatives mid Cross and Orde
have been in consultation since last
Friday. It is understood that the mechanics demand increase in pay in
addition to schedule and   recognition
as a body. One of the principal difficulties is said to be in regard to the
number of helpers and apprentices allowed in comparison with the number
of first class mechanics engaged.
(SPECIAL TO THU MINER.)
Victoria. Aug. 1.1.���The estimates
brought down yesterday show the proposed expenditure of nearly two and a
quarter million, against a million and
a half last year. The increase will he
distributed throughout portions of the
Province. Salaries of Qovernment
servants and school teachers will be
restored to their former level hefore
the reductions of the Cotton-Martin
days. The grants to hospitals arc
likewise increased by nearly one-half.
Tell thousand has been apportioned to
the London otlice.
The grant to County Court judges
for sitting as Stipendiary Magistrates
is to be restored and arrears to the
old rale paid since the reduction was
made. Over four hundred thousand is
appropriated to roads, trails and
bridges, the Kootenays getting about
one-third.
To Nelson eleven thousand is set under thc head of repairs. This is all
that is granted to that Riding, while
Kossland gets twice as much. No
large  grants   appear   to   he   intended
anywhere.
In the Legislature yesterday good
progress was made in the staging of
hills and in committee work. The attempt ot Curtis to amend the railway
charter by purchase and running over
rights wore both voted down by three
to one, after long and generally nio-
notous debate. At the end, however.
Melnnes broke out because the Government would not commit themselves
on any of these questions and rained
abuse on Dunsmuir and the  Ministers
amid the laughter and amusement of
the House.   In thc Railway Committee
this morning Chairman Pooley's
ing vote  defeated   the   Lak

It happened nt a well-known music
store on Baker Street. A popular
baritone had just linisned warbling
tlie strains of "Because" when a
friend, who hud been nn attentive listener, mildly queried whether he sang
"Always."
"No, you lobster, if I did I'd have a
sore throat!"
"Well, you needn't get angry about
it," said the friend���"I am the proud
possessor of  an    acquaintance   who
sings the  'Maple Leaf��� Forever.'
��� ���   ���
It   is   ll noticeable   fact that   when
the   natives   of   Europe or   American
countries get   into trouble ill   foreign
dimes tbey make a rapid  transit rush
for the Hi-ilisli consulate in preference
to their own.    The  liritish   may have
many faults but when  people get Into
a scrape they do love to get under the
Union .lack.    And their  confidence is
justified.

"Though 1 am no philanthropist."
The Swindler said, "Its true,

"Did you ever hear of the joke that
got Dan Rice, the most famous of
circus clowns, his lirst job under canvas?" asked the old timer.
"No���what was It'."'
"Dan, while still in his teens, applied to a circus manager for a position."
"What salary do you want'."' asked
the manager.
"Sight hundred dollars anight,"
replied Dan.
"Tell you   what   I'll   do," said the
manager,
"Well, speak quick," returned Dan,
"I'm losing time."
"I'll give you 84 a week."
"All right," said Dan. "it's a go."
