(IIY ASSOCIATED I'll 10. S.)
London. Sept. 5.���No ollicial announcement is yet forthcoming here
in regard to the decision of the Powers. Hut the consensus of opinion
continues suggestive of a compromise
on the proposals now under consideration. In the meanwhile there is little
authoritative indication tbat thc Dowager Empress is ready to treat for
peace even if the Allied Powers reach an agreement in regard to tbe best
means of opening negotiations. On
the contrary many rumors gathered at
Shanghai suggest that she is carrying on her auti-fo elgn policy with
increased zeal. The latest reported
Imperial decree from Tal Yuan Fu is
said to be defiant and unrepentant and
to contain the statement that the
Court lied lest the Emperor might he
killed during the lighting between the
Hoxers and Christians and thus leave
no one to continue the "Celestial
Worship." The decree is also said to
exhort a union of the viceroys to
"avenge the injuries inflicted on
China by the  Powers.
Foreign Colony Oppose Any
but Most Stringent
Policy.
PROM THE (OAST.
Victoria. H. C, Sept. b.��� The extensive military manouvers on Monday of the defences of Esqulmalt were
successfully executed and proved satisfactory to the military   authorities.
A great demonstration was made on
the arrival of .1. W. Jones and Arthur
Carter, just home from the South African war. They were members of thc
Plrst Contingent. The whole town
turned out and met them at thc
wharf. There was continous cheering
and the procession headed by the band
and a squad of men from the Fifth
Regiment wended its way to tbe Dri-
ard Hotel.
BOYS' BRIGADE.
Toronto. Sept. 5.���The fifth annual
meeting of tbe Boys' Brigade of Canada was held here last night. Tbe report of tbe Brigade secretary pointed
out that the past year has been thc
most successful in the history of the
organization. The Brigade now includes nearly a hundred companies
in various parts of the Dominion with
a total membership of about four
thousand. A satisfactory cash balance
was also reported on hand.

Kingston, (int., Sept. 5.���The
American synod of Ontario, which

(BV ASSOC'IATIjn I'lllSS.,
Shanghai, Sept. 5.���The despatches
announcing that the American Government refuses to agree to the withdrawal of troops from Pekin before
satisfaction for the outrages and the
losses of its citizens shall have been
given, have been received here and
are applauded by the entire foreign
colony in Shanghai. Any other policy, according to the business men and
missionaries with whom the Associated Press representative has talked,
would be a vital blow to the prestige
of the foreigners and would weaken
their status in China. The local English papers fiercely denounce the proposals to evacuate Pekin and say that
the Chinese would interpret evacuation as defeat.
The masses of Chinamen now believe that the Chinese arms are victorious. The Chinese papers printed
in Shanghai contain lone; circumstantial accounts of alleged Chinese victories at Pekin, Tien Tsin and Tung
Chao, and the shops in the native
quarter display for sale lurid pictures
of the Celestial army driving the European soldiers into the sea at Taku
and cutting them to pieces at Tien
Tsin. Tbey also show pictures of the
foreigh admirals being tortured in
the presence of the viceroys. Vice-
Admiral Seymour is represented with
his arms pinioned kotowing before
the throne. The people accept these
reports aud pictures as correctly representing the situation and consider
the reports of the English press us
"merely foreign lies."
The European community continues
to demand tbe destruction of Pekin
nil the exemplary punishment of the
ollieials, deeming an indemnity aud
the paper promises of new treaties
Inadequate. Undoubted Information,
in detail, of the massacres of foreigners daily Inflames this sentiment.
The Dowager Empress is living in
tbe Yameu at Tal Yuan Fu in Shan Si
Province. Fify missionaries have
been slaughtered in the Yamcn under
her orders, practically in the presence
of the viceroy. Three were beheaded
in the inner court and the others
were killed barbarously iu tlie outer
court yard. They were then thrown
to the dogs.
The Empress has ordered a commissioner to investigate the conduct of
tbe northern viceroys who made a
compact with the foreign cons-lo and
Iheir degradation is expected. No
investigation of ollieials opjsiscd to
foreigners has been  made.
The Associated Press representative
learns from ollicial sources the facts
of the killing of several American
woman missionaries.   At the request
of the mission board the details were
withheld out of regard for the feelings of the relatives of the murdered
women. Hut other prominent Americans, who have long antagonized the
policy of sending women to isolated
inland posts, think it important that
the facts should be known. The
names of victims arc withheld, by
request. Two of these women were
captured while attempting to leuve
the stations whore tbey were located, were led about the country naked
and repeatedly outraged. Finally
Ihey were killed by a method too revolting to be described.
Two other American women were
coming   to   the   Coast   with   a party
which n number of Chinamen followed and stoned. The women fell exhausted and were taken by the Chinamen into   the   presence   of   the   local
ollieials.
They were prostrated upon the   exe-
her insane,the Chinese escorted her to
the Coast because of their superstition regarding the insane.
'The foregoing are matters of ollicial
record. The fourteen English missionaries, including six women and
four children, who were murdered at
Chu Chan in tbe Province of Che
Kiang, according to the story of a
Spanish priest, who escaped, were
killed with hay forks and spears by
the magistrate's bodyguard and their
naked bodies were hanged from trees.
These incidents make a lenient policy unpopular in Shanghai, where all
thc victims have friends.
Placards appeared in all public
places exhorting foreigners to oppose
a compromise with the Qovernment
and attacking Li Hung Chang, quoting tlie remark to Consul Goodnow,
credited to Earl Li.that "the foreigners in Pekin, except the Ministers,
were of no account."

tUNOlUNti    I'UOVIDENCE.
Since 1800, when the Liberals came
in for the second time since Confederation, the volume of Canadian trade
has largely increased over what it
bud been when the Conservatives
were in 'power. Por example, in
1890, a Conservative year, the total
Imports and exports were 8218,007,300;
in ls'.i'.i, a Liberal year, tbey had
swelled to 8331,001,313, It follows,
therefore, that il is better for the
trade of the country lo have a Liberal
Government in charge of affairs, and
it accordingly becomes tlie duty of
every sensible elector to vote for Liberal candidates. That was the line of
argument taken by sir Richard Cart-
wright in one of his recent speeches.
Sir Richard is not Minister of Finance in the Laurier Government, but
be is nevertheless the financial oracle.
The stall' of ollice has In en put into
the hands of a youngster, Mr. Fielding, but the veteran Knight is the
authority in the last resort. In bis
speeches be always deals with the financial standing of tlie country, and
fiscal mutters generally are his favorite, nnd almost exclusive, topic. Being Minister of Trade and Commerce,
be is especially familiar with imports
und exports, and no one can be quicker in deducing from the large increase
in tbeir volume that the country is
better oil' under a Liberal than it
would be under a Conservative Government. . Trade is booming, all because he and Mr. Fielding and Sir
Wilfrid and the rest of tbem are in
charge at Ottawa, and to vote them
out would be disastrous.
It did not need Sir Richard's sober
contention in this regard to understand that in the coining campaign
tin- Liberals intend to rely a great
deal on the present commercial pros
perity of the country. That prosper
ity, tbey will claim-are, iu fact, ul
ready claiming���is due to Liberal pol
icy and administration. If wc bavi
good times, wc have to put it. down
to tbe filet that the Liberals are in.
Well, they were in once before. They
came in in 1873 and went nut iu ls7s.
During that time the trade of the
country went to ihe dogs. Liberal
policy and administration railed ti
save it then. The year before they
came in tlie total trade was 8.17,801,-
203; the year they went out it shrank
to 0188,45.1,882, Thc Conservatives
said it was owing to the mistaken
policy of the Liberals, and sir Richard,who was Finance   Minister ut the
li    became   highly    Indignant   nt
this and said it was due tn a dispensation of  Providence,    Provldcnco  was
responsible for a    business    "leplessii in
that embraced   Canada ami played havoc with trade.
sir  Richard  Cartwright would   not
allow that  the  Liberals   were   in   tlie
hast responsible   fm-  thi ntractlon
in trade during their term of office
back in the -iieiiiies: I'rovidonco
was alone In I.lame, llui now thai
there is an expansion, 1'rovlncnco is
quietly put aside ami the whole crcdll
is ascribed to Liberal policy and administration, Sir Richard I ould understand the depression in tlie seven-
tics; but Im resolutely refuses in recognise the fait that the entire civilised world has fm- several years past
been enjoying .'I degree   ,,f   prospcrltj

ami that Canada is  reaping  lei-  full
'.''here arc some rum specimens of
the public educator and instructor
among the newspapers of the Province. The Lardeau Ragle will serve
as an example. It is angry because a
redistribution measure was not pass
ed during the session recently closed.
It says: "The census excuse is all
bosh, as Redistribution Hills have
twice passed in the House since the
last census in '91." Whether it would
be expedient to wait four, six. or
eight years for ll census before making a icdistribution is one thing; to
wait from one year to tbe next is
quite another. The urgency would
require to be very great indeed to
justify a blind redistribution on tbe
eve of a census that will give us ex-
ictly the light required. The folly of
such a suggestion looms all the great*
when we reflect tbat there is little
probability of a general election for
the next four years, and in the meantime we have leisure for Several redistributions, Should it be discovered that
they afford amusement enough for
the trouble.

All may sec from the resolutions of
the New Westminster Convention exactly where the Conservatives of the
Province stand. They have a clearly
defined policy, and one that   ought to
iminend itself to the approval of all
classes of our citizens. It is sufficiently Provincial, without being either
Indifferent or antagonistic to the general interests of the Dominion. Our
first duty 's to ourselves, not forgetting, however, that there is also a
duty owing to the Confederacy of
which we form a part. The nomina
tion of Mr. Charles Wilson as leader
of the party in Hritish Columbia
will give satisfaction, as long as the
gentleman continues to take tbe same
broad view of all nuestions of public
policy.

CITV COUNCIL.
Still Conic to no Definite Conclusion
as to Electric Lights,
Another week will pass and probably n considerably longer time will
elapse hefore the City of Nelson is
properly lighted again, It was thought
that, dellnile action would be taken nt
the meeting of tlie. Council last night,
hut the report of the City Engineer
was deferred for consideration at tllc
next meeting of the Council, Tbe report suggested two things. First,that
a new dam lie liuilt at the southerly
limits of the city. It stated that the
cost of the dam would he 83500, a
lliinic would have to he bull! from the
end of the present one to the new site
malting n total cost of 87,500 to88,000,
exclusive of land and right of wny.
The second suggestion was to rebuild
the old dam. It, stated that the
ground there was very unsafe, and
that it. would lie necessary to go a
great depth before a substantial dam
could lie made. This work would cost
from 83OO0 to 83500. Mayor Houston
suggested that they engage an expert
on Hint kind of work and have another report. On motion Mr. It. C.
Hiiilet was selected to make a report
and present it at the next meeting of
the Counoil.
The following report of the hoard of
Public Works was adopted OS a whole:
That a six foot sidewalk he laid on
the south side of Hoover Street from
Ward to Josephine Streets; that the
sewer lie extended from Kootenay
Street to Josephine Street in tlie alley
between Robson and Core Streets, in
blocks 23, :.'4 and 251 that a 12-Inch
sewer be laid on Latimer Street from
Hall to llendryx Streets : that the sidewalk on the south side of Latimer
street he extended from Hall to llendryx Streets; that a 15 foot sidewalk
lie laid on the soutli side of Baker
Street from Josephine Street easterly
150 feet: that the sewer in block (is be
extended to llendryx Street, thence
along llendryx Street to Vernon
Street, thence along Vernon Street to
Cedar Street.
Charles Hillyer of the Nelson Saw
A' Planing Mill asked that a hydrant
be placed near the building. This
was referred to the Board of Public
Works.
Tbe Nelson Ri lie Association asked
the Council to donate a trophy for the
annual shoot which is to he held ill
Nelson. It was referred to thc Finance Committee.
The West Kootenay Power ._ Light
Conipany submitted a proposition to
the Council for furnishing the City
with ligbts. The Conipany wanted 50
per cent of the gross receipts. Each
light had to average (ill cents and not
exceed an average of 16 C p. Tbe
communication was filed.
The remainder of the time was taken up in considering special by-laws."

The report of the inland Revenue
Department on the linking powders
sold iii Canada gives but two cream of
tartar baking powders found on sale
In the entire provinces of Manitoba.
British Columbia and the Northwest
Territories,'viz., Dr. Price's and Royal,
All linking powders found on sale.collected and analyzed, except these two,
were mado from alum, and lire condemned as iiiihenlllifiil.
With regard to these cream of tartar linking powders, the report says
their wbolcsonieness may be taken as
well established. The use of cream of
tartar with bicarbonate of soda long
antedates tho commercial baking powder. These ingredients act in a perfectly definite way, so that the manufacturers of these powders are able to
guarantee n mixture whieh contains
no excess of either, uml whieh is absolutely pure and healthful.
It is quite otherwise the report says
with burnt alum. Owing to the dilli-
culty of solubility of the alum, five
per cent or more of it goes unchanged
into the bread. The Interaction ofthe
alum und the soda Is completed In the
stomach of the consumer. A disturb-,
mice of gastric digestion is Inevitable
and cannot but prove harmful.
Hence, tlle Department considers
cream of tartar baking powders the
only ones proper for use or healthful,
while it emphatically condemns tiluin
and alum phosphate powders.
The anulyist takes up and refutes
the claim of the alum powder makers
that tho alum in their powder is resolved Into a neutral substance wht/'n
the bread is baked. The residinni the
alum powders leave in the bread���composed, the analyst shows, largely of
alum, n mineral poison���cannot be
conceived, he says, under continuous
use.to be without Injuriousconscquen
