Ministers at Pekin Held as a
Means of Treating With
the  Powers  as to
Advance.
(BV ASSOCIATED I'll ESS.)
Lonoon, July BO.���At last the British (loveriimcut is convinced that the
Ministers ut Pekin are safe. Brussels,
Berlin and Washington advices were
regarded witli a certain amount of
doubt, but once the British Consul at.
Tien Tsi_ otlicially confirmed them all
doubts vanial.ed.
The feeling of relief and gladness
shown by offloials who have read the
dispatches is very marked. Til the
same breath they express their delight they say this afternoon's despatch may be regarded as a vindication of United States Secretary of
State, Colonel John Hay.
AS HOSTAGES.
Loudon, July 30.���The latest news
from the far east seems consistent with
the theory that the Chinese (Iovernment has the foreign Ministers alive,
but means to treat them as hostages,
while the stories of massacre relate to
other members of the foreign colony
la Pekin.
Chinese officialdom, it is alleged,
openly speaks of the Ministers as host-
ag '*, wBose fate depends upon the decision ot the Powers in relation to
threatened advance on Pekin.
Reports are multiplying that, a
number of foreigners were alive to a
late date. Thus, Home reports that
the Propaganda Fido has been assured
of thc safety of Bishop Favin. while a
telegram from Nankin informs his
family that Prince Cactani, of the
Italian Legation, is alive. There is
��o confirmation of the various favor

from really independent sources.
A telegram from Shanghai reports.

had been for years in the service of
the Viceroy of Nankin, that prior to
the framing of the Yang Tse agreement with the Consuls the Viceroy
suggested an Anglo-Chinese occupation
of the Yang Tse defenses, but (Ireat
lli-itii in declined.
It is reported at Shanghai that the
Powers have again proposed through
Li Hung Chang the peaceful surrender
of the Woo Sung forts and Kiunguan
Arsenal, but that the Chinese regard
the proposal as a breach of thc existing agreement.
WOULD HOLD MINISTERS.
London, July 30���Shanghai despatches to the Daily Telegraph say
that Li Hung Chang was questioned
yesterday. He declares that the Emperor, Empress Dowager uud foreign
Ministers are all safe, but he has no
more compunction than belits an Oriental for the condition of women and
children in Pekin. He is unable to
explain why,if the Ministers arc safe,
lie cannot produce such proofs as
would satisfy the Powers, but he
strongly favors holding the Ministers
as hostages so as to secure favorable
terms for the Knipress Dowager and
the rebel Oovcrnment. He does not
see that holding thc Envoys as hostages would be a less crime than killing them, It is obvious now that the
object of Ll Hung Chang's visit to
Shanghai was to sow discord among
the Allies through the Consuls, but as
yet he bus not met with success.

on Saturday gave a decision iu the
case of Dr. Edward l'layter, proprietor of the consumptive sanitarium at
Ilightichls Moore Park, charged with

business." The magistrate found that
Dr. l'layter had established the place,
not only without the consent of the
municipality, but also after he had
been notified by them to leave.
"Dr. l'layter has shown by his forcibly establishing himself in this
manner that it would be useless to
deal with him iu a nominal way,"
said the magistrate. "I therefore line
him S'.'un for establishing the business,

"Hunter reports that the enemy

KING HUMBERT
ASSASSINATED
Italy's  Ruler Killed  by an
Anarchist While Attending a Festival.
(BV ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
Rome, July 30- His Majesty King
Humbert, was assassinated last night
at 10:30, at Monsea, near Milan and
died at 11:80 p. in. The murderer is
Angelo Breast, a native of Prato, in
Tuscany.
The King had been attending a distribution of prizes in connection with
a gymnastic competition. lie bad
just entered with his aide de camp,
amid the cheers of the crowd, when
he was struck by three revolver shots
fired in quick succession. One pierced thc heart of His Majesty, who fell
back and expired in a few minutes.
The assassin was Immediately arrested and was with some difficulty saved
from the fury of the people.
The terrible news did not reach
here until after midnight. The Premier at once called a Cabinet meeting
and made preparations to go to Monsea. The Crown Prince and Princess
are on board the royal yacht Vela,
making a cruise in the Levant and
were at once telegraphed the sad intelligence.
Monsea, Jnly 30.���After the shooting of King Humbert here last night,
as soon as His .Majesty's attendants
could realise what had happened, he
was placed in bis carriage and driven
as rapidly as possible to the palace.   "
He was. however, beyond aid. The
assassin's name is variously given as
Angelo and I lactno llrcssi. He was
born in l'rato, Nov. lo, 18119, and is a
weaver by trade. He conies from
from America, where he resided at

The new King is neither mentally or

New York,July 30.���Evening papers

BLAME   THE   VATICAN.
London, July 30.���Some of the evening papers here attempt to trace a
connection between the ussnssinntiou
of King Humbert and the rancorous
propaganda that the Vatican is alleged to have conducted against the
supremacy of thc Sovereign. These
journals point out that the assassination occurred in the vicinity of Milan,
where it is alleged the recent insurrection was largely fomented by the
Roman curlal.
The Globe editorial is as follows:
"As long as the Vatican persists in
its anti-national attitude, it will be
in vain to hope for the rc-cstablish-
mciit of the temporal power of the
Pope, and so long will fools and fanatics he provided with a fearfully potent weapon for sedition and worse.''
Rome, July 3(1.���Signor Saracco, the
Premier, left for Monsea at 7 o'clock
this morning with the Vice President
of the Senate to draw up the certificate of death of thcKing. Thc. Prince
of Naples is at I'irarous. on bis return voyage. The Council of Ministers sat away into the earlier morning.
Signs of mourning began rapidly
appearing- throughout the city this
morning. Crepe was displayed upon
many residences and public buildings,
draped portraits of thc murdered Monarch ocoupied many points of vantage
and Hags flew at half mast everywhere. King Humbert's body will he
brought to Home and laid to rest iu
the Pantheon. It is stated that the
name of the assassin does not appear
iu the list of dangerous anarchists
known to the police. A few morning
newspapers publish short tributes to
the qualities of King Humbert, declaring that It was due to his love of
the working classes that he fell a victim of assassination. The papers add
a few words of sympathy and respect
for the new king.

It was given world-wide publicity
two weeks ago by thc suicide of an
anarchist in Patterson, N. .1., wbo
claimed to have been chosen by lot, to
do the killing-. That his position is
known is proven by the fact that his
compatriots. including many well
known Italian bankers, were only pre- j
vented from giving him a magnificent '
funeral by the intervention of the.
iutcrvclil ion of the police.
Signor Branoh 1, the Italian Consul j

murder was the result of any iiiiiir- I

was the act, and inspiration of a murderer. He said he was certain thai
there was no connection between the

Like a holt out   of  the   blue comes
the assassination of the Italian  King.
Tho anarchists are probably a  source
of unwearied anxiety to the   authorities, but since the cruel lulling of the
Knipress of   Austria   the   public   have
heard   little   of   them.    The    public
mind, indeed, has been taken up with
other matters, and for a time had forgotten that those wild   human   beasts
known as anarchists were still in   existence.    What adds to the surprise is
the fact thut King Humbert   was   beloved of the people, as a man of broad
sympathies  and    great    kindness  of
heart.    The whole civilised world will
throb with   indignation   at   the   out-
rage.        	
General   Hunter   has    achieved    a
great triumph.    His   campaign in the
vicinity of Bethlehem became   so  obscured thut little general interest was
taken in it, and the surrender  of the
entire    Hoer   force   opposed    to   htm
comes all  the more   as  a   surprise   in |
consequence.     The     depleted     Boer
ranks can ill afford the  loss   of   5,000
troops.    The Immediate effect will be
to clear thc Free  State of the   enemy,
and the  Influence   on   the   struggling
remnant in the Transvaal   will be   In
the last degree  depressing.    We   need

Thc Miner has always  been in   the
unfortunate   predicament     in   which
Mr.    Turner   now   confesses   he    has
been floundering.    It has   never been
able to aseertuiu what Turnerism was
or is.     It   understood   the   epithet   to
have been   intended  as one of opprobrium, but   notwithstanding frequent
appeals to   the   Semlin   preBs   it   has
failed   completely   to   learn    why   it
should be so meant or   could he so regarded.    Under   its  former   management The Columbian,   of   New   Westminster, endeavored to enlighten   ns,
but managed only lo render the darkness   more   obscure   than   ever.      Wc
Concluded long  ago that   the   expression was u mere meaningless  phrase,
and the run that bus been given to it is
only one more proof   of the   Influence
of phrases on the unthinking,    Probably there was   something in   the   Administration of two.   three, nnd   four
years   ago   to   which   Ihe   expression
might have been   applied: but   so   far
as we can learn it consisted of an   intelligent and faithful devotion   to the
public     interest,    marred     now    ami
again, no doubt, by those little error!
and mistakes to   which   our imperfect
human nature is prone.

THE   MAN   IN   THE  STREET.
Ills Calculations as to Prcsont Financial Conditions In London.
London, July 30.���The man in the
street, who has become a conspicious
figure in current diplomacy and politics, has a rough way of forecasting
conditions in thc near future, lie asserts that a pound earned will be
vorth 19 shillings for a long time lo
come, and possibly six   pence   under.
Whatever may be the mysteries in
China, the military calculations in
South Africa or the magnitude of thc
relief measures reijuired for thc (amine
in India, the continuance of the taxation nt the present high rates is a
certainty and thc outlook is serious
from the point of view of the street,
because thc burdens during the long
period of peace were those of war
taxation and according to English
theories there must be no rcsoursc lo
tariffschedulesto meet thc emergencies
of war. The cost of the war in South
Africa, as estimated by Mr. Wyndhain,
already exceeds ��80,500,000. and lie is
probably the only optimist who
fancies that the aggregate expense is
already closely included.
The first estimate asked for tin-
China service is ��1,800,000 but there is
no clairvoyant among the (iovernment
financiers imaginative enough to conjecture that the cost of preserving the
English commercial interests in middle China in the catastrophe at l'ekin
opens the way for the partition of the
Empire. The immediate prospect for
the man in the. street is dearer money.
The Hank of England lias obtained
complete control of tbe market
during tbe week and has enforced the
ollicial minimum of I per cent.
All the financial experts expect that
the tightness of the money market
will continue and thc pressure will
Increase. Since the Indian (Iovernment loan of ��37,000.000 bus already
been announced and it is evident that
the Chancellor of the Exchequer must
speedily lie in the market to borrow-
large sums to meet the supplementary
and other charges, the reduction of
the banks' reserve, experts assert.
must be prevented by higher rates
and a large amount of gold must be
secured from some quarter, The
problem which the bunk's directors
are now considering is the easiest and
surest method of attracting gold from
America, and it may safely be assumed tbat tbe rate of interest will
be raised point by point until it
comes."
