LEGATIONS  SAFE  AT   PEKIN
United States Minister Conger Cables His
Qovernment on the 18th From the
British Legation.
In British Legation���Under
Shot and  Shell���Quick
Relief Can Prevent
Massacre."
(���V   tSSIH  I VI'IOII   PHI-SB.)
Washington, D. C, July 20,���The
Chinese Minister has just received a
cipher cable from Minister Conger at
Pekin,   It is in the state Department
cipher mud is transmitted through the
Tsung Li Yanicn uml the Shanghai
Tal Tol.
It contains about Ml words ami is
signed in English with the name Conger. The Minister has taken it to the
���State Department.
At 8:40 a. in. Minister Wu handed
the Conger message to Secretary Hay.
No doubt was expressed by the State
Department oHleiuls as to the authenticity of the message. Mr. Conger's
telegram is as follows:
" In British Legation. under
cimii.. ncil shot and shell fnnn Chinese
troops. Quick ralief only can prevent
massacre."
The message is not dated, but it
in understood it was sent from Pekin
ou the 18th.
ger had been translated by the State
Department, it was sent tu the While
House and transmitted to the President, who is at bis Inline in Canton,
Ohio.
WORD FROM COODNOW.
Washington. .Inly 10.���Two cablegrams, bearing tidings of the unfortunates beset in the British Legations
iu l'ekin, were received this morning.
First came a Bhort. sharp word from
Consul General Goodnow at Shanghai
to au officer of the state Department.
He gave notice that Minister Conger
had, at last, beeu heard from directly,
and that his words were on the way
to the   State  Department.
WU CARRIES MESSAGE.
Scarcely bad thc cheering news
reached Secretary Hay before Minister Wu came tearing down the asphalt
streets from his Legation in bis automobile, bearing in bis own bands the
serious message from Mr. Conger.
Mr. Wu himself wus ignorant of
what he had in bis band because the
message was iu the State Department
cipher, aa apparently meaningless
mass of figures and periods.
After the work of translating the
cipher into Knglish had been completed Secretary Hay betook himself
to the War Department to convey the
news to Seoretary Root and to Secretary Long, who were together at the
time.
SECRETARY LONG JUBILANT.
After a short consultation in Seoretary Root's oflice, Seoretary Long,
upon emerging said: "We are all very
happy over the good tidings. 1 have
hardly had time to think of thc exact
effect of the news on the situation,
but it removes one of the great elements of doubt and leaves ns free to
hope for the rescue of thc foreigners
In Pekin.
"It Is a great victory for the State
Department of the United States.
Kvery country In Christendom was
employing every agency in its possession to obtain authentic news of the
besieged Ministers nnd the United
States iH the first to give to the world
authentic and absolutely reliable
word from the place In which the
beleaguered Ministers are garrisoned.
It is thought the possibility of the
code falling into the hands of the Chinese after the massacre and being used
by them Is too remote to be seriously
considered. Said the Secretary: "I
am of the opinion that outsiders could
not have made use of onr code and
besides, the nature of the reply witli
its strong appeal for Immediate relief
is such as would not have been sent
by anyone seeking to conceal a catastrophe to the foreigners in Pekin."
At noon as the cablegram from Con-
SKEPTICAL    IN   LONDON.
London. Jnly 30.��� Minister Conger's
message lo the state Department at
Washington is   not    regarded   here as
justifying overmuch optimistic feeling, but on the contrary is generally
accepted as a further Chinese attempt
at mystification.
Some think thut the fact that the
message is undated, and the similarity
of Its contents to sir Robert Hart's
message of June 34th, suggest it was
sent oil'about the same time, but intercepted by the Chinese.
The sceptical arc confirmed in their
suspicions by thc fact that a message
was received today by ,M. Delcassc.
the French Minister of Foreign Affairs, through the Chinese Minister at
Paris, purporting to come from tbe
Emperor and asking France's mediation witli the Powers. This, it is alleged, was dated July 10th and made
no mention of the Foreign Legations
al Pekin,
CREDITED  IN   WASHINGTON.
Washington. July SO.���Tlie Slate
Department officials do not accept the
conclusions reached by some of tin
London officials that Minister Conger's despatch is an old one. which
had been intercepted by Chinese officials.
While they refuse to make public
the text of the message sent out by
Secretary Hay on the 11 111 instant to
Mr. Conger, through Minister Wu,
tbey state that the message received
today from Minister Conger is a satisfactory reply to the one sent by
Secretary Hay.
EMPEROR'S   MESSAGE.
Paris, July 30.���The Chinese  Minister at   Paris  has  transmitted  to  M.
DeclaBsc, the Minister of foreign affairs for Communication to President
l.ouliet. a telegram from the Emperor
of China which was despatched
by the (iovernor of Shan Tung, on
Thursday, July 19, asking the mediation of Prance with the other foreign
Powers. The telegram makes no allusion to the Foreign Ministers at
Pekin.
M.   Delcassc   Informed   the Minister
that President Loubet'B reply would
be addressed to the French Legation
at Pekin, where the Imperial Qovernment can obtain it. but lirst the Government of the Republic would wait
until it could be certain that the
French Minister at l'ekin was safe nnd
sound.
CI.OOMY  IN   LONDON.
London. July '.Ml.���To add to the gloom
occasioned by thc extremely serious import of news allowing the daily developing strength of the anti-foreign movement in the south of China, comes
this morning from Shanghai a report
that sixty missionaries and one hundred native converts have been massacred at Tal Yuan.
Though the report is not yet corroborated it tends to confirm the
belief that the hope that the central
and southern Viceroyaltles would
hold aloof from the. Boxer rising has
never bad much   foundation,      If this
massacre had occurred iii the Province
of Shan Sec there can be little qucs-
tion that the intense anxiety for the
safety of the international colonies at
the river ports and even at Shanghai
l8 fully justified, for au attack later
by the masses of Chinese gathering in
and about the International concessions would mean horrors compared
with   which   the   massacre   at    Pekin
would be but Insignificant.
The   rumor   is    again   current    In
Shanghai thai tbo  Empress and Emperor are preparing to retire fnnn the
'Capital to See Nun Fu.     The authori-
I tics at St. Petersburg are satisfied that
1 the measures for lb   relief of  Harbin
(which is Identical with Charbon) will
be successful.
With a view In showing his good
faith the Chinese Minister at St. Petersburg has begged the Russian Foreign Secretary to examine all despatches arriving for the Legation before their delivery.
Indian troops arc daily arriving at
Hong Kong en route to Taku, A
Hong [Cong despatch reports a daring
act of piracy within the harbor there.
A score of pirates armed with revolvers seized a launch and took it up the
Canton River, capturing two junks
en route. After looting the craft the
pirates abandoned them.
IN NORTHERN CHINA.
New   York,   July   20.���"Russia   is
pouring troops over the northern Chinese border, but her forces arc not
yet concentrated and are meeting
with serious losses. The Chinese Boxers have overrun all northern China,"
so says a Che Foo cable to the Herald.
It is reported that after thc allied
armies recaptured the native oity of
Tien Tsin last Saturday their shells
set fire to the town. The Chinese before tbey fled killed all their own
women, il is reported, to keep them
from falling into the hands of Hie foreigners. The native Chinese report
that there ari' in and around Pekin at
least 800,0(10 Chinese troops and that
the Hoxers arc arnityj with the best
and most modern weapons.
FROM A CHINESE SOURCE.
Paris, July 30, ���The Foreign Office
has received Information from a Chinese source, in which, however, certain reliance may be placed, that the
foreign Ministers at Pekin have nol
been massacred. According to this in-
.'oriiiatiiiu. on July 7 the Ministers
ivere attacked and the Legations
burned, but the foreigners succeeded
iu crossing the city to Prince Ching's
palace, which was then barricaded.
The Europeans were holding their
own up to the time the news left on
July tl. Since then nothing lias been
beard from Pekin.
CUSTOM OFFICERS RETURN.
Shanghai, July 30.���Tlie Custom
officials will return to Winchow tonight, their safety having been guaranteed by the Tao Tai. The apprehensions of local danger have been
somewhat modified by the arrival of
the warships but there are sonic signs'
of international disagreements.
SHANGHAI  ALARMED.
London. July 30.���The   Daily   Mail
prints a cablegram from its Shanghai
correspondent, whieli says that the
foreign settlements of the city arc
full of suspicious characters, and in
the native quarters a continually increasing number of armed Chinese arc
arriving from the north. The troops
iu the Wo Sung forts are being reinforced daily and a number of new
guns have been placed in position,
The foreign consuls have presented a
united protest against these olVensivc
preparations. Viceroy Li Hun Yih
replied that he had ordered   the work
of strengthening the forts to cease immediately, but the local commander
refused to heed tile Viceroy's remonstrances, These forts completely command Shanghai, and the guns already
mounted are capable of blowing the
foreign settlement to pieces iu twelve
hours.       .
OREGON AT KURE.
Yokohama, July 30���The U. S.
Battleship Oregon lias arrived al Kure,
where she will undergo temporary
repairs. The leading papers still
urge the despatch of more troops lo
China but there Is a growing sentiment against Japan's engaging iu

of the Government in the matter is
not known, bul another division from

it Incumbent upon him to comply with
the   Miiuiiniiis    lo    pi cod   to   l'ekin
which has reached him from the Imperial Government there. It is extremely significant and constitutes
another proof that there is a responsible Imperial Government in control
at Pekin.

GOVERNOR'S SI'KI.'ll.
The S| eh with   which the present
extraordinary session of the Legislature was opened yesterday has u ring
of honesty about it that puis it in a
class by itself. As a rule these
Speeches read as if they were prepared
to hide something and hoodwink the
people. That one which the new Ministers at Victoria put into Ihe mouth
of the new Lieutenant-Governor for
use yesterday is sincere iu tone, and
reads like the message of men who
who know their duly and are bound
at any cost to perforin it. It may bo
that different men view these things
in different lights, and that a strong
opponent of tbe Government would
Bee nothing Injthe Speech to distinguish it fnnn others; but the impartial
man will say tbat it bears the stamp
of honesty and sincerity, and that
through it runs the assurance that
the Ministers have a clear grasp of
the sitnaliiiii and are prepared to devote themselves to it with a single eye
to the public interest.
It Is natural thai matalllferouamin
ing should be made the subject of re
murk early iu the Speech. The eon
dltion of this industry has been a dis
turbetl one for some time past, and so
much of the prosperity of the Province is depending on it. It is the
purpose of the Government to appoint
a   Cm ission   to     inquire   into   the
working of the laws relating to it.
with the view of ascertaining whether further legislation is necessary or
would be advisable. We are told that
beyond voting the estimates ur little
business as possible will be introduced, but no doubt the appointment
of this Commission will be one of the
features of the present session. There
are many things connected with the
industry thut will stand investigation.
bnt there is nothing which earnest
and active Commissioners may not
ascertain during the recess, and make
the subject of a report which can be
taken into consideration at the session
of the Legislature which will convene a few months hence.
While it may be natural to thus
remark on the condition of metalliferous mining in liritish Columbia,
It is most unfortunate that the occasion
for it should have arisen at all. A
year and a half ago there were uo
troubles of any kind, and no good
reason existed why there should be
any. Tlie relations of tbe parties
directly connected with the Industry
Were of the most agreeable character.
There were no complaints or grievances on cither side. But the demagogue politician and the labor agita
tor got their beads together, and
trouble ensued. It became acute.
and did Incalculable harm. The food
sense ofthe parties concerned realised
the danger, aud a compromise settlement was effected. But the denia
gogue and the agitator are still witl
us, and until their hands are tied or
their tongues silenced there can be no
p.-nil a in m peace. There is a seeming
peace just now. but deep down there
Is a feeling of doubt and apprehension
and unrest. What can lie done by
legislation it is hard to say. It may
be that nothing can be done. It may
Is; that the. most Important of our in-
dustrles is doomed to years of uncertainty and turmoil. But the Govern-
���pent are sincerely anxious to ascertain whether anything can be done
to remove all causes or sources of
trouble, and every good citizen of
British Columbia will support them
in their endeavor,
Those terrible 1)uiisiiiuirs improve
on nearer acquaintance. The Premier.
only a short six months ago. was regarded lis something of .'ill ogre. He
was rich, and   was   willing   to drink
the Id 1   of  the   less   fortunate and
Struggling to become richer. An awful fellow he was In every way. The
while laborers he would keep in the
tyrrany of poverty, and   to do this he
tilled  his  mines  with   Chinese,   of
course the Chinese worked fur next to
nothing, and    the white   mail   had in.
chance.    All that Mr. Huiisuiuircared
for was to get his coal produced at the !
lowest possible cost and sell   It at the
highest possible pike,   A bud man, I
for whom stoning was too good. But
this toothsome story Is spoiled In thc
light of actual facts. It developed
that Mr. llnnsinuir was paying his
Chinese   laborers   precisely   the   same
wage the whites demanded, and therefore he was not using tbem to lower
the standard, ll developed next tbat
he was discharging liis Chinese as fast
as he could get whites to take their
places, and that his policy is to get
rid of the whole of them and to make
this a white man's country. The next
thing we hear is that this terrible
man who is now Premier Intends to
ask the Legislature to tax the coal be
is producing, iu order to raise a revenue with whieli to carry on the affairs of the Province. It looks just
now as If Mr. Diinsiniiir bids fair to
be the most popular Premier liritisli
Columbia ever bad.

The promise of the ('iovernnu.it to
adopt a " vigorous policy of road-making " is a retlex of that horrid Turnerism which the people, in a tine
frenzy of unreason, were asked to
smash two years ago. And with the
help of the Lieutenant-Governor, they
smashed il. What the Province has
gained by the two years of administration which has succeeded that
event we all know to our cost. If the
men in charge at Victoria now arc
only supported as they deserve, much
of the mischief that has befallen the
Province will be repaired. The mining Industry was given a black eye,
and among other injuries was the almost total suspension of road-building
Into mines that were sadly in need uf

the encouragement that can be giveu
to it. and the present (iovernment has
the sense to realise this, as Mr. Turner did before it.
The electric light by-law had a narrower escape than is generally  supposed.
it requires a three-Hi tha vote to carry a
money   by-law.   Three-fifths   of   the
B33 votes cast for and against the
electric light by-law last Wednesday
are 300, and those iu favor numbered
only 338, leaving the .small majority
of --'S only. A change of 15 votes
would have defeated it. We are
afraid the friends of the by-law, and
the rotten system it is intended to bolster for a time, will find little comfort in the vote, beyond such gratification as call be obtained from a narrow escape from disaster.

GAPE NOME.
Gloomy View of Outlook Thuro lly u Rocnnt
Visitor.
WiishiiiK-ton, II.O.i J-ly SO.���Tho
Secretary of the United Btatos Treasury liaH received a letter from 0. Ru-
, dolph, of Brooklyn, N. Y., on the Bit-
nation at Oape Nome. The Department nees im reason to doubt the trn_t-
wiirthiiiesN of the Btory told by Mr,
Rudolph uml BuggeBts Ita publication,
It Is becoming daily more apparent to
ollieials that the conditions In the new
(colli fields are almost eertaln to result
in great Buffering liming the coming
winter, especially us epidemioa of
smallpox and typhoid fever aro threatened.
Mr. Rudolph takes a very gloomy
view of the outlook at Nome where
he arrived on June 18th,  uml   whence
he departed on June 80th, of the nun
working OB Nome beach no one was
talcing out enough gold to pay for his
"grub. " The only place where he saw
gold being taken out,   he  snys,   wns
between the bench and tlie tundra,anil
there meu were only making .vuges of
87 to 810 a day. This plaoe, he says,
is about three-quarters of a mile long,
and it is all taken up by about BOO
man. Like the beach, it Is now
nearly worked. Along the several
creeks the writer says probably 1,500
men were at work.
Of general conditions at Nome, Mr.
Rudolph says: "When I left 30,000
men were in the district, und the
only work was in unloading or In putting up new buildings. The former
task kept about 800 men busy and the
building employed BOO, When I left
on .luuc '.'nth, between 500 and 1,000
Were arriving dnily. 1 went on the
Hun bias, which made a trip on to St.
Michael's mnl brought down linn men.
The Aberdeen, on which I came baok,
made two trips and brought a few
more than MM). Several nunc bouts
made one or 1110(4' trips to St. Michael
und brought more.
There are fur more destitute people
at Nome than the people on the outside know. The water wells I saw
were from 1- to 16 feet deep, and are
sure to become contaminated by all
these people huddled together. When
I left there were tents L'O feet deep on
the bench, and three miles long. Now,
Von don't want to forget that it took
more than B0 vessels to bring all these
people to Nome, to sny nothing of
over 6,000   from   the   Yukon.    There
ui-e not Inducements for the steamship
companies to send vessels hack for the
busted mob, You muy aah any miner
who was iu thut country whether he
saw any gold ilust in circulation.
That is the wuy to tell u good camp,
ln eight days 1 saw only one man pay
for a purchase with dust. When
asked about it he said it wus from the
Klonkike.

Editor Nelson Daily Miner: ���
I observed an article in your issue
of the 19th inst.. uinler the name of
.1. T. Wilson, manager of tbe Nelson
Transfer Co.. in which lie claims exception to the statement which appeared in your issue of the lsth inst.
As an eyewitness I distinctly repudiate every statement made by the
above named gentleman ami for his
information be., to say that in almost
every case of obstinacy of dumb animals kindness, not blows of a club
such as he used in this case, will be
found more persuasive. -To verify
the above statements Mr. .1. T. Wilson might profitably take a course of
instruction in some prominent circus.
