DISSENSION
IN GHINfl
Report   That   the   Chinese
Soldiers are Killing the
Boxers.
(BV  4SS1M 11 11.1) PRESS.)
Tien Tsin, July SO.���Chinese coming
in from the country report Unit Hit'
Chinese soldiers are killing the Boxers
wherever the latter are Heen, giving
an a reason thut the Boxers have
driveu them into embarking on a
hopeless struggle. An Intelligent
Chinaman said he regarded this as a
sign of wide spreading dissension. It
was only a matter of a short time, lie
declared, before the same state would
exist in l'ekin. Then lie thought
Jnng Lu, Commander-in-Chief of the
Chinese forees, and Prince Chlng
would be able to regain sutlieient influence to muke peace, especially if
the foreigners in the Capital were safe.
This appears to represent the general native opinion here as far as it is
possible to ascertain it. In the meantime reliable news as to events in l'ekin and whether the foreigners are
���live Is entirely lacking or is only obtainable from Ghlneae sources and
then Is most meagre and contradictory.
It Ih now thought that the forward
movement of the Allies will probably
take plaoe earlier than was at first intended, possibly by the end of this
month. Rut nothing definite will be
decided before the arrival of Sir Alfred Uasclee, commanding the Indian
contingent.
A runner, who arrived from Pekin
yesterday, reports that the foreigners
were safe ou July 10 and that there
had been considerable lighting between the Hoxers and soldiers inside
the city.
PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT.
Tien Tsin, 18, via Shanghai.24 -Colonel Rower of the liritish regiment,
Colonel Wegack, of the Russians and
Colonel Aoki, of the Japanese, will
form the joint provisional government
for the City of Tien Tsin, which it
was decided to establish. Tbey will
be entrusted with the task of bringing
something like order out of the existing chaos.
-iaoe the issue of the proclamation
inviting well disposed Chines*! to return to their homes, a number have
come back to the city. Many native
servants arc coming to the settlements and returning to the services
of their previous employer!, Tho native city this afternoon presents nn
appalling spectuclc of the ruin and
desolation.
The suburbs were completely destroyed by Hie. mostly caused by the
Shells of the Allies ou the side fining
the settlements. It is believed that
uot a dozen houses are intact and all
wore a little damaged by thc tremendous lire of the Allies' artillery which,
however, was apparently heavy enough
to produce much effect,
A curious   spectacle Is   presented by
a number of mud hovels Immediately
under the wall where the latter was
damaged, hardly one of tliein showing
signs of having been bit.
SCENE OF DESTRUCTION.
Inside the city the damage was terrific. The buildings nearest the wall
were mostly gutted by fire and many
were literally blown to pieces by the
"hells of the Allies. Among the
mouldering ruins arc many charred
corpse, which the pigs and dogs arc
eating. The Allies nre busy removing
the bodies. In consequence of the
great number of dead many have not
yet been buried.
The streets throughout the city nre
strewn with all kinds of articles.
Dozens of Chinese are digging In the
ruins for money and other valuables.
Most of the houses which are intact or
little damaged, display the Hags of
one or the other of the allied forces,
tbe Japanese and the French Hags
Predominating. There have been
many attempts to iniltnte thc Hugs.

FRENCH ARE FAVORITES.
Tlie French apparently arc the favorites, many of the pieces of cotton
ami papers displayed bearing the inscription "France," or "Vive La
France," all unmistakably lu the
handwriting <>f native clerks, formerly employed by foreign Chinese  firms,
It is stated that the Chinese losses
since tile trouble broke out are 11.000,
most of whom have been killed by the
Hoxers and soldiers. This is probably
much exaggerated. The Hoxers are
said to be gathering in large numbers in the neighborhood of the Hal-
kon arsenal, captured by Admiral
Seymour's column and now occupied
by Russian troops. The latter have
Buffered several casualties through
snipers concealed in the woods in that
vicinity.
ON THE 21ST.
Chicago, July 85,���A dispatch to
the Record from Tien Tsin, dated
Saturday, 21st, via Shanghai, says:
"Todays performance will break the
backbone of the Chinese war party.
At daylight this morning the combined forces turned their attack upon the
(Iiinese left, which was penetrated.
As the Russians failed to make a
Suitable bridge   across the   canal   the
Chinese made a smart counter attack
on our right and left Outposts. This
was repulsed by a handful or two of
men who fought with great bravery
but with heavy casulties. No Americans were injured.
At one o'clock in tbe afternoon the
Allies bombarded the native city and
after au hour of magniliccut work by
two four inch guns and three Impounders, the fort and adjoining military pagodas were in flames. Their
destruction was complete.
The fort replied feebly with a few
rounds, when one gun got the exact
range and Bred several lyddite shells.
This is thc fort that has been shelling
Tien Tsin since June 17th. The Allied forces have spared the portions of
the native city from which operations have not been directed.
Taku, July 21,���Cuang Yi has unsuccessfully tried to arrange with the
general commanding the Peh Tang
forts for their surrender. The general
refused to surrender the forts. He
said that if the foreigners did not attack him be would agree to maintain
a neutral attitude.

Bronkherst Spruit, July 24.���The
Hoers having got wind of the British
advance evacuated all their positions
and arc reported to be moving   to the
northeast towards Lydenberg whither
President Kruger is going.    A portion
of the Boers remain north of Hushvcldt
whence they attempt to interrupt
communications with this line. The
bridges here and smaller bridges to
the west have been destroyed.
The British force comprises two
brigades under General French and a
brigade and a half under Ueneral
Hamilton. It is not likely that the
advance upon Middleburg will be contested. The Hoers remaining upon
their farms state that most of the
burghers are anxious to bring matters
to a finish but that thc foreigners arc
persistent in keeping np the struggle.

THE   FISHERY STRIKE.
I
Fraser were pay-
. fish.   The men
The eanners of th
Ing   twenty   cents
who caught the flsh   thought this wns
not enough and demanded twenty-five
cents, and because   they  did   not  got
the Increase they struck.     This was a
week ago or more.    Thc dispute is not
settled yet; and in ihe  meantime tho
salmon run Is running out. soon there
will be no fish to catch,   and   the   sen-
son will be lost.     According to   their
own  story, the eanners  make  out  a
good case for themselves and   against
tbe men.    Tbe price  tbat   was   being
paid   was   a    generous  one. and   the
men were able to   make   good   wages,
To Increase to twenty-five cents would
mid so heavily to the  cost of   production thut many of tbe canneries would
be obliged to shut  down   and   a  disastrous   loss   would  be entailed   upon
alt of them.    This is taken as a strong
argument     in    favor   of    compulsory
arbitration.
It might be a good   thing to have a
law making   arbitration   compulsory.
That is a   point   on   which   no   doubt
much could be said of a favorable nature.  If such a law were iu   force now
it may be   that  the   dispute  between
the  Fraser River eanners and the men
who supply the fish   might be   settled
promptly   and   with   justice   to   both
sides.   Hut tbat is not a question that
necessarily arises just   now.    There is
another one, of quite a different kind,
that presents itself   for  some   sort  of
solution, if this Province Is not to invite all   sorts   of   labor   troubles   for
many years to come.    Whether or not
we are to   have   compulsory   arbitration is a matter that will settle   itself
in time, and no doubt  satisfactorily;
what is  urgent for immediate consld-
ation is whether   a   few men arc  to
constitute themselves the law   of   the
land and to determine on what conditions our   industries arc   to   be   conducted.
There can be no   law   in   a   liritish
country tbat shall say to any mnn thnt
he must catch fish at twenty   cents   a
head.    No man can   be   compelled   to
work at a less price than he chooses to
put upon his own labor.    If the Fraser River fishermen think their fish arc
worth more than   twenty   cents  they
have a right to demand more,   nnd   If
not paid them  they   have a  right  to
stop   fishing.    That    is   so   obviously
reasonable and just that it is not necessary to do more than state   it.    Hut
there is more than this to tbe   present
question.  It is said that a great many
of   thc   fishermen   are  satisfied  with
tweuty cents, nnd are willing to  supply fish at that price but arc   prevented from doing so   by   the   ringleaders
among the   strikers.    When   they   go
ont with their boats and nets to   pursue their vocation, these leaders beat
up crowds   who   follow   and   forcibly
drive them off.    This is the   tyranny
of   Unionism, which   the   law  must
some day stamp out if we are to   continue to rejoice in a free   Country,    A
man must not be  compelled   to   work
for a price against bis will, but   it   is
much more intolerable and   more   menacing to the liberties of a free people
If   a   man   shall   be   prevented   from
working at a price that satisfies   him.
Men   have   a    right   to   combine    iu
Unions for their protection or  advantage, bnt those   Unions,   nor   anyone
acting in their behalf, can be allowed
to clothe   themselves   with   power   to
keep any man from   Working   at  any
price that   pleases   him.    The   sooner
our Legislature recognises this   principle and Oompell   respect   for   it  thc
better it will Is- for liritish Columbia.
for It Is hard to reconcile this fact
with the theory that they nre
still alive and under thc protection
of the  Chinese  Government.   If the
worst hns happened and is being concealed, it means that all China is
against tlie Powers and that troublous
times arc only beginning; but if there
has been no massacre, the ruling powers in China are friendly and the disturbance will only be of short duration.

Inquiry on the part of  The Miner has
elicited  the   fact   that the   two   sides
played   with   shocking   looseness.    It
was even worse,   for  in   thc   various
branches   of   pitching,   batting   and
fielding it was observed that   many of
the players were   far from   being  experts.     It is all too painfully   evident
that the ball players   whom  Mr. Turner and   Mr. Wallace   have   collected
have mistaken their vocation, aud we
would   advise them, in   thc   language
of our morning contemporary, to   return "home at once and   stay there."
It is simply out of   the   question   that
tin; Kootenays can stand   these   inexpert exhibitions of ball playing.

Miner has received from the

entitled "Canadians in Khaki: South

some ollicial correspondence, the
volume contains the names of all the
members of all the contingents, together with the casualties revised to
the latest date, and so arranged as to
be most bandy for reference. It is a
capital little work, and should flud a

which is more than can be said of

AN EXCELLENT  SUGGESTION
Nolson Should Have an tlorilcullural Society
to  E-CO_r_oe Farmers.
To the Editor of The   Miner:   Dear
Sir:    I   think   that   anyone   who   hns
has uoticed the stores of  the  general
produce dealers   in   Nelson   and other
towns of the Kootenay, must   have remarked the large amount of vegetable*
and small fruits, which are   daily imported into this district, and on whieh
high duty and freight   has to he paid.
To many the thought must have occurred,    that   miuh   whieh    is     now
brought    In might be   profitably   produced nearer home; and mueh   money
kept in  the district.     A glance    at the
gardens of  some of   onr   citizens, and
those   of the  Chinamen,   is  certainly
enough   to   confirm   anyone   in   this
opinion.
The question now comes, is it not
time to start a society to encourage
horticulture and small fanning in this
district?" Only a short time ago a
rancher mentioned to me that he had
about 1500 pounds of rhubarb to dispose of and asked me the name of
buyer to whom he could consign it. I
gave him the name of a wholesale
merchant who agreed to purchase thc
eropif it was properly pocked in tn
pound ' erates; but not having the
crates on hand and being unable to
obtain them In time, his entire
was a loss.
The difficulty of procuring erates
nnd baskets for packing fruit and
vegetables is even at the present time,
the cause of considerable loss to the
gardens and ranches near Nelsun. and
many small crops of strawberries and
other fruits are often entirely sacrificed. A local horticultural society
could do much, by finding out what
members would be likely to require in
the way of seeds, plants, erates, manures, etc., and by buying jointly could
effect a considerable saving; whilst
with but little encouragement more
gardens would spring Into existence,
our tables would be better provided,
many frolls and vegetables at present
unthinight nf   would   be   grown,    and
much money kept In the market,
Trusting,   sir.    that    you   will    call
the attention of your   readers   to   this
matter. 1 remain,sir, yours faithfully,
A GARDENER.
elementary and simple means as might
been suggested themselves to the most
amateurish detective were not employed until the Chinese took up the  mutter and impressed it upon our chief of
police.     Why  did   not   Chief   Ingram
himself   employ the   means which  he
suggested to tlie man from   Victoria ?
Surely it is the  business  of the  po-
liee to use every lawful means to trace
the perpetrator's of all   crime, and especially   of   such   crime   as   murder.
Why Were tne most simple means left
unemployed till   tbey were   suggested
by the hiip-hazard interference of private    individuals?     Surely     nothing
more damnatory of our police   system
could   be said 'or   written than   this
simple   tale   of   how   Mali    I.in   was
found done to death in broad daylight
with a bullet in his head and that uo
clue to the person who committed thi
deed could Is'   found   till   a   stranger
from Victoria came along aud   unravelled the great mystery in  a few   moments.
There has been an eight-year-old
child against whom there was strong
suspicion, and who was yet able to
bailie the whole ���'intellect "of the po-
lice force till his secret literally bubbled over at the first conversation held
with him. There is assuredly "something rotten'' in the "state" of our
police system when such a crime as
manslaughter can go floating on the
surface of our civil life without its
guardian being able to pick it up.
Human life is sacred, and no city and
or nation can afford to treat it as a
cheap or trivial thing, whatever the
country's colors or creed to whieh it
may belong, for as sure as lax ideas
regarding the inviolability and sacred-
crop iiess creep in just as surely will lax
practices witli regard to it follow,and
Crimes of violence become rife.
Lit ns trust that mercy will season
justice in dealing with the unfortunate boy who gave his dread secret Ho
artlessly away. Thc greatest criminality abides with those who ]>ermitt-
ed such lethal instruments to lie at
tlie direction of a child. If anything
c nildjustify the dangerous familiarity
of all classes with guns and .revolvers
it would be the knowledge of such an
exposure of police insuflieiency as iH
furnished by the instance under discussion.     I I'm. etc., CITIZEN,
