THE SITUATION
IN 6HINA
Incredibility Still  Maintains
But Hope Exists for the
Safety   of   the
Legations.
(BV  ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London, July 23.���Though there are
some Indications that hardened pessimism is beginning to melt under
the warm showers of Chinese assurances, iu that it is now admitted that
perhaps not all the foreign  Ministers
at l'ekin have lieen killed.
Incredulity, however, remains thc
dominant note of European comment.
No one seems able to reconcile the assurances of the Imperial edict with
Minister Conger's statement in his alleged message to Secretary Hay that
he was in hourly expectation of death
by massacre, though both documents
purport to have beeu sent off from Pekin on the same date.
It is confidentially anticipated,however, that this story will Boon be solved as the (lovernments, following the
lead of the United States Secretary of
State, Colonel liny, have taken steps
to test the sincerity of Chinese officialdom by insisting upon free communication witli the Ministers.

CHINESE ATTACKED.
Foreign (Laborers In Wyonilnu Commit Out-
ramis Upon Chinese Citizens.
Chicago, July 33.���A special to the
Times-Herald from Cheyenne, Wyo,,
says: "A number of outrages have
been committed by foreigners upon
tlie Chinese residents of Rock Springs,
a coal mining town 300 miles west of
here during tlie past few days. The
State authorities, fearing a general
movement against Chinatown, where
more than 600 Chinamen reside, have
ordered several companies of troops to
be in readiness to move to the scene.
Probably two companies of infantry
will go to Rock Springs today and
martial law will be proclaimed, The
feeling among Ihe foreign laborers at
Rock Springs against the Chinese isat
fever heat.
A BRILLIANT  DASH.
New York, July 88.'���_�� brilliant
dash against a large force of Chinese
at Tien Tsin was made this morning
by a detachment of American troops,
assisted by some English Kusileers.
says a Che Foo special to the Journal
aud Advertiser, dated duly 80. The
object was to capture a battery of
large calibre cannon which hud been
doing greut damage.
The Anglo-American troops charged
a large fort across an open space and
were exposed to a hot but poorly directed fire from the enemy. They
dashed into the fort, and after engaging the Chinese in a sharp hand to
hand light, put them to Bight and remained masters of the fort.
Eight large modern guns were captured, together with carts and all accessories. The battery was immediately turned upon the Seeing enemy
and uudcr the well directed tire they
suffered heavy losses.
The victory was won in an in< ."editable short time against un overwhelmingly superior force. Despite
the charges under lire and the light in
the fort, neither the Americana nor
British lost a man. The Chinese
army is now retreating towards Pekin.
CHINESE    REPULSED.
fit. Petersburg, July 88.- Two encounters ure reported to have taken
place between liritish uud Chinese
fnrceB near Wei Hal Wei. The latter,
it Is reported, were repulsed after n
stubborn encounter' No dates are

from Algatehl, in the trans-Haikiil
territory, under date of Pridilv, July

now, Consul General at Shanghai,
dated today, saying that Prince 'I'lian
wires tbat an officer of the Tung l.i
Yamen saw all the Ministers on the

1). .1. BEATON, Editor nnd  Managei
AT THK ul'KNlNU.
The Coast newspapers are very oh-
serving, Between them they manage
tu keep tub un nearly everything Hint
transpires within Biweral miles of
them. They have noticed a nnmhcr
of nnuanul tilings in oonneetlon with
the opening of tin- Legislative aession
last Thursday. The ohiel actor in the
ceremony wit" a raw hand, Sir Henri
Joly is a Governor that is new to the
biisineaa. having l��'en advanced to the
position only n few days ago. The
Legislature was raw, meeting for thc
first time. The Government wns raw.
Everything wns brand new. uml vet it
Ih aaid of the opening that it was the
most brilliant held in u great many
years. A new Lieutenant-Governor
met a new Legislature nnder the leadership of 11 new Government, uml a
most pleasant  ceremony   wus  the re
hlllt.
Hut n stranger thing than ull these
happened. The business of an opening day is merely formal, anil when
the formalities had been completed
the Premier rose to move the adjournment of the House. We cannot vouch
for the truth of it, hut one of the
newspapers referred to suys it was the
first oeeasion ou whieh Mr. Dunsmuir
ever rose to address the House. If true,
it ib a most remarkable thing to sny
of a Premier. Premiers as a rule are
made after long service as leaders of
a party. They hammer away for years
from an Opposition bench, making
-peeohes, cutting and slushing in
criticism of the uetions and policy of
their oppouents. uml generally directing the plan of campaign against the
enemy. They become bailers very
largely because of their readiness iu
debate, of their ability as makers of
speeeheB. Mr. Dunsinuir has been a
member of the Legislature for several
years. For two years he had been iu
Opposition, Yet it was not until
Thursday last he ever rose to address
the Rouse and formally to move a resolution, ami he did this as Premier
of the Government anil leader of the
Legislature. He must be a gentleman
ofrnrc gifts, of great natural aptitude
for polities! leadership, when lie funis
himself advanced to such s position
without the usual training and experience.
These were the unique features of
the opening. There was another thnt
was not unique, When the Premiei
moved the customary adjournment at
the olose of the formalities. Mr. Mar
tin loudly protested, declaring thnt
the members had assembled at great
ineonvenlenee and were anxious to
get through with the business of the
session as ijuiekly as possible, lie
urged that the Bpeeoh from the
Throne be taken into consideration at
once. This was ull claptrap, of course.
No one would have been more surprised or disappointed than Mr, Martin himself if he   had beeu   taken at
his word.   An adjournment under the
circnniKtanocs was not only customary.
but in every sense proper and almost
necessary. Legislatures ami Parliaments never think of taking it_
Speeoh for discussion the mot���snl it
is ilclircrcil. Mr. Martin knows thi
quite well, anil we are only surprised
that the members of  the  Government
shi,ul,i have fell themselves called   up
ou to treat his object i,ui seriously
the Dominion in the front rank of the
wheat-producing countries of the
world. Settlers would come trooping
in, nnd the Empire would save thousands of subjects annually who now
go to swell the population of foreign
ami rival nations. That is the prospect that   was dissipated   by Sir  Wil
frid Laurier'B very untimely generosity, when be went over to the Jubilee
tn get himself bcpraiscil.
The Columbian is disapppointed because New Westminster does not appear In the itinerary of the Governor-
General, Neither does Nelson, but
there Is no soreness here on that account. His Excellency is down for
three days at Kossland, und two duyH
thereafter is due at Lethbrldge, This
is merely a muddle of the person who
sent out tbe programme. Lord Minto
would never dream of spending three
days nt Kossland, fur the very good
reason that be dues not contemplate

finishes whioh showed that most excellent judgment had been displayed hy
the handicapping committee.
Kach match was watched with the
keenest interest by those present and
every skillful play and exciting rally

The players arc to be congratulated
upon the fact that they played out
their matches In such depressing
weather and Mr. Macrae was unfortunate iu being euinpellcd to call
oil' the finals of the Open Singles on
account of illness. lie played in the
Handicap Mixed Doubles however in
spite of the fact that he was quite ill
at the time. Mr. Williamson, against
whom be was matched in the Open
Singles, kindly consented to postpone
that match and in consequence it will
be played oil' next Saturday.
The finals in the Ladies' Handicap
Doubles was alsn postponed until the
same day, as Miss Hammond had not
sufficiently recovered from her accident of Tuesday to play. In consequence Mrs. Stewart and Mrs. I'ollok
will play Miss Hammond and Miss

is a detailed account of   the matches:
Play commenced with Friday's unfinished match between Dickson,
minus 30, and E. T, Pollok, plus 11;
E, T. I'ollok winning the final set

way for the finals, which resulted as
follows:

beat Miss F. t'riekmay and F. M. Macrae, minus 1-3, (30), li 4, .1-7. 8-11. Mrs.

stein presented by E. C. Urown.
Ladies' Singles, Handicap ��� Miss
Bensusan, plus Ll, defeated Mrs. Bird,
minus 1-^ (11). 1 -tl, H-3, 7-11.
The feature of this match was the
play nf Miss Ilensusau ln the third set.
At one time the play stood .1-1 in favor of Mrs. Bird, but by plucky play
Miss Bensusan brought the score to
five all and won the match by getting
the two following games. The prize

Miss Flora Maodonald.
lu addition to the prizes above mentioned Mr. B. C, Rlblet had donated a
prize to he played for by the visiting
ladies. This match will probably be
played on Satin-day next with the postponed finals.
The following letter is in reply tn
une published in Thc Miner on Saturday :
Editor of The Miner.���It seems to
me that "The Man Who Pays His
Way" Ih taking nn unusual interest
in the poor man who can only see the
hall games iu the recreation grounds
from a neighboring friendly hill or
rouf. By building a fence around tlie
recreation ground, Mr. Waterman has
made it possible, to bring tu Nelsun
outside baseball and football teams
without holding businessmen up for
an amount sufficient tn pay the expenses nf these visiting organizations,
As it is now nn une is asked tu contribute more than half a dollar and
then only when he gets value for his
money. I am afraid that "The Man
Who Pays liis Way" must be pretty
nearly broke.
