Revolutionists   of Colombia
Claim to Have Won Important Battles.
Vancouver, B. C, Aug. 5.���Anxious
questions have beon repeatedly asked
regarding precedent in the forthcoming visit of their Royal Highnesses to
Vancouver. A list of these questions
submitted to the proper authorities resulted as follows:
On the present occasion the Mayor
of a City will tako precedence over
the Lieut, Governor of a Province, as
Their Royal Highnesses will bo guests
of tbe eity. ,
Consuls, and Consul Generals are
not mentioned in the Canadian table
of precedence, their position being
commercial and not diplomatic
Royal carriages and postillions for
their Royal I'ighnesss and a landau
and pair for Their Excellencies will
be sent. Their Royal Hgihnesses will
only take their own personal stall' in
tl.e carriage w.th them. In the procession Their Royal Highnesses carriage comes last Their Excellencies
carriage next precedes it, tho Lieut.-
Governor will next precede Their Excellencies and the Mayor's carriage
precede the Lieut.-Governor's. No
carriages should accompany Their
Highnesses around tbo park. An escort will ho unnecessary during the
drive, but a detachment of mountod
police will he provided as outriders.
Half mourning to be worn means
mauve, grey lilac, black and white.
The exact precedence will buns follows: The Admiral of the Esquimau fleet, tho Lieut.-Governor,
bishop Protestant, archbishop Roman
Catholic, according to date of concentration as bishop, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Lord Chief Justice, Sir Charles
Tupper, Sii Hibbert Tupper, the
mayor. The clergy have no precedence. In the procossion there must be
no band. Correct form is for ihe
chairman to rise and propose the
health of the King nnd CJnuen which
is then drunk after which the chairman again riBes and proposes the
health of their Royal Highnesses the
Duko and Duchess of Cornwall. Ilis
Koayl Highness makes one reply to
both toasts. The pioposal that the
ladies of Vancouver present their
Royal Ilighnessses with a souvenir
has not been encouraged.
Victoria, B. C. Aug. 5.���It is understood that as the result of the visit of

INSURGENT PROCLAMATION.
Filipinos Urged to Keep Up Struggle
Against Americans.
Manila, Aug. 5.���Miguel Malvar,
who has been recognized as the successor of Aguinaldo by the Filipino
Junta, at Hong Kong, has issued a
proclamation dated July 16, copies of
which arrived here this morning, giving assurances to the natives of the
continuation ot an active campaign
and expressing hope for its successful
issue. The proclamation, of which
5,000 copies have teen printed, purports to ememate fiom Batangas. It
is a characteristic Insurgent document
charging the Americans with all sorts
of atrocties. It recounts the losses
of guns nnd ammunition and death of
four distinguished American officers
Jnly 10 all of which it says the Americans concealed. The proclamation
threatens General Cates with death
for treachery and warns all Filipinos
who surrender that they will never
be able to live outside the American
lines. Malvar claims he has sufficient
arms and supplies to continue the
fighting indefinitely. The American
officials believe the proclamation was
really written by Agonc'iilo (the
former representative of Aguinaldo) at
Dong Kong and that he probably
has never seen Malvar. Strong efforts
are buing made by the police to prevent the distribution of tho proclamation.
Government Despatches Represent the Insurgents
as Defeated.
IMPORTANT   DECISION.
to
Trades Unions Cannot Conspire
Injure Employers.
London, Aug. 15.���The House of
Lords toduy rend ered an important
judgment affecting trades' unions.
The case was brought up to an appeal from the judgment of the Irish
oourts regarding, a wholesale butcher
damages against the Butchers' Assist
ants' Association which brought pres
sure to bear on retailers to boycott
plaintiff until he dismissed a certain
non-union employee, threatening otherwise to call out the union employees of the firms concerned and finally
it induced the non-unionists to leave
the plaintiff. The Lords dismissed
the appeal on the ground that the
acts of wrongful and malicious conspiracy were not undertaken to advance the interests of the workmen
themselves but solely to injure the
plaintiff.
BLOODLESS VICTORY.
Sham Naval Battle Teaches the Admiralty   Something.
London, Aug. 5.���The naval cnau-
oeuvers were suddenly terminated this
afternoon by o.-durs of tho Admiralty
and the enemy's fleet waB declared
to be the victor. The final results have
not yet beon given ont, hut th6 do-
fenders are known to have lost a dozen cruisers, two gunboats and eight
torpedo bout destroyers. The onemy
lost thiee cruisers, threo torpedo destroyers and throo torpedo boats
while they captured an ondlesB number of merchantmen.
Tho result is taken to bo a practical
confirmation of the justness of the
criticism to which the Admiialty has
recently been subjected.
NOT TO BE CHANGED.
London, Aug. 5.���Although no division was challenged at the third
reading of the King's declaration
hill this ovening in the House of
Lords, it is generally believed that
no further attempt will he made to
pass it, either this session or the
next. Lord Salisbury, the Premier,
referring to the statement of the Catholic peers, said the Government now
realized that the Catholios did not
wish the offensive wording of the original declaration to bo withdrawn un-
Iosb the Government at the same time
withdrew tne declaration regarding
the secretary of the Protestants. The
Government never bad the slightest
intention of withdrawing that. The
Oatholics regretted that they must be
prepared to seo the declaration stand
in Its present form.
New York, Aug.5.���A. Diaz Guerra,
agent in this city of tho Colombian
revolutionists today received information from trusted agents who had
reached Venezuela that a bloody battle was fought at Palo Negro in the
latter part of May. The conflict lasted for 17 days. The battle waa drawn
at the end of that period, the insurgents retiring when their ammunition was exhausted, the government
troops being too badly cut up to
pursue the revolutionists.
Ily the Red Liner, Philadelphia,
which arrived here today from Venezuela-, Agent Guerra received a bunch
of information in the form of reports
cables and letters from the scene of
hostilities. These stated that General
Benzjamin Horra, who is attacking
from the Pacific side is at present
oporating in the department of Cau-
cau ; General Cardilla who is advanc
ing from the Atlantic is in the department of San Tandar and in ihe possession of Ocana City Generals Castillo
and Clodmhe have effected a junction
of the forces and are at El Valle in
the department of Mugdalena, and
General Maiio has fought an important battle at Jirardot in the department of Chundinamaran which is in
the'interior of the countiy about 100
miles from Bogota, the capital of Co
lombiii. Important and successful
engagements have been fought by
General Qerrera at Tuinca and Barti-
adoes and other insurgent victories
are reported fiom the southern portion of the department of Caueau.
Great revolutionary army is said to be
operating on the Pacifio side of Columbia. Information which came to
agent Guerra states that Senor Valencia, minister of war, is on his way
to Ououta to take charge of the
government forces on the frontier and
that at Bagota tbe merchants not
wishing to handle any more papui
money, have closed their stores and
that business throughout the country
is at a standstill, senor Guerra says
that he ha�� not for some time received any information concerning the
whereabouts of General Uribewbohas
been appointed by General Vargas
SantoB in supreme command of the
Insurgents,
Continuing he said: ''General
Uribe is a personal friend of General
Castro, the president of Venezuela.
They have known each other for
years. Castro lived for a time in Colombia and liis wife is a Columbian.
The friendship and recent meeting
between Castro and General Uribe at
Caiacas has no significance in a revolutionary sense, Tlie Colombian government officials, however, openly
charge that President Castro lias been
aiding the insurgents but such is not
the case. I do not think lie sympathized with the insurgents because
a year ago he ordered tho seizure at
La Guuyra of two of onr warships
whicli had on board 1,0U0 Mann-
lichers rifles, 300 carbines and three
guns, a Maxim, Ilotchkiss and a dynamite piece. The boats and military
stores are still held and if Castro
was on our side they would have been
surrendered before this. At. the battle
fought at Jirardot by General Marin
all the government artillery was cup-
tuied and the regular tioops routed.
The Colombian government has now
in the field about !~>,000 men and the
insurgents outnumber them and are
equally well armod. There will bo no
cause for t'nej United States of Nortli
America to interfere because of the
revolution in Colombia. The Insur
gents will not disturb the operation
of the railroad at the north end or
the digging of the canal at the isthmus."
According to official advices from
Cai-cs received lc .t week, the insurgents havo already ueen defeated
by the government troops,
EXPOSITION BUILDING BURNED.
Kansas City, Mo., Aug. 5.���The
exposition building elected during the

ooo was destroyed hy lire this afternoon.
'Buildings Torn to Pieces ln
Philadelphia Yesterday
Morning.
Barrel of Gasoline in Grocery
Store Supposed to Have
Been Gause.
" Filadelphia, Pa., Aug.5.���A terrific
oxposion in a block of six buildings
on Locust street, about 11 o'clock tonight completely wrecked five of the
structures and caused the deatli of
from 10 to 20 or more persons. Over
two score of others were more or less
seriously injured. Some of those
taken to the hospitals will die. It'is
estimated thut at least 35 persons
were in the five buildings when the
explosion occurred and the actual
number of dead will probably not be
Known for 24 hours. What exploded
and how it happened is not known,
but is is believed to have been a barrel
of gasoline in one of the three grocery
stores. The front walls of the buildings, with the exception of one building, were blown outward to the
street, while the floors and roofs were
blown upward nnd fell straight to the
ground. Almost every building for
about two locks about the scene of the
explosion had windows shattere and
were    otherwise damaged.
Every building on tbe opposite
side of the street was more or less
wrecked but none of them fell. A
terrible cry went up from the ruins,
the moment   the   explosion   occurred.
Women, children and men could be
seen scrambling from the debris while
..he agonizing ciies of otheis were
heard in the wreckage. From a'l the
surrounding buildings injured people
came running and fell in the street
unconscious. To add to the horror,
fire broke out in the debris the moment it settled to the ground and in
less than five minutes the great pile
was burning fiercely from end to end.
A general alarm was turned in for
file apparatus and ambulances, and
in the meantime the work of rescue
was voluntarily begun by those in
the neighborhood that were not injured. When the firemen reached the
scene, the flames had gained great
headway and were ignting the buildings across the street. The fire, however, was soon under control and with
the exception of a small blaze here
and there, was extinguished in a few
minutes. The work of digging away
the ruins was then begun in earnest.
Near the edge of the debris several
colo-ed men wero taken ont and sent
to the hospitals. While the firemen
and policemen were digging into the
debris and hauling away heavy timbers in several sections of the wreckage, cries wero heard coming from
tho cellar of one of the stores. Fifty
men with rope und tackle were immediately put to work at that point
aud pulled away the roofing and
flooring which had fallen into a mass-
edheap. From tbo bottom of thc pile,
doubled up, were taken a man and a
woman. The man was able to speak,
bu*. the woman was apparently dead.
While the wink of rescue was going
on in the exploded block, hospital
attendants and others made f. search
of all the damaged houses on the opposite side and almost a score of persons were taken to various hospitals
from these places.
The Ferguson and Pennsylvania
hospitals wore soon crowded with tho
injured. None of those taken to the
hospitals have died up to midnight.
Two hundred men aro now at work
clearing away the wreckage. The
buildings containing tha pool
rooms, clothing stoic and restanrant
were three story brick structures
while tho three othor buildings were
two and a half story.

CONTINUATION OP Y.Mill LEAP.
Frank Tamblyn of this city, returned recently from his mining
claims in the Ymir district, in close
proximity to the celebrated Ymir
mine. For somo years he has held
this property without having realized
i's value, and it has therefore practically remained undeveloped. Recently two claims lying between his claim,
the Joplin and the Y'mir property,
haue been bonded for a large sum of
moaey. In the event of the property
being purchased by the Chicago company who have it in bond, they will
erect a plant on it and will work the
mine themselves. The Pat, Carthage and L. M. Fractional, consitute
the property under bond and thc Joplin immediately adjoins the I.. M.
Fractional. The Ymir ledge has been
traced through the bonded property
and to the very edge of the Joplin. A
number of men have been set to work
to develop the claim and follow up
the ledge, which has every indication
of extending across the claim as it
has been found that the celebrated
Ymir ledge extends in a comparatively straight line, across the whole
property, with every indication of being as rich in mineral as the one
whioh has done so much to make the
Ymir camp one of the best known in
British Columbia.

BORING FOR OIL.
H. R. Bellamy, of this city returned
on Saturday evening last from a trip
to the oil boring operations, which
are being curried on at Grand Forks
under his direction Asked in regard
to the report that the worie was being
discontinued lie said that there was
no truth in the story, The work is he-
ing pushed ahead as rapidly as circumstances will allow. There are
obstacles, however, altroady encountered which will tend to retard the
work which for some time cannot be
continued as rapidly as has beon the
case in the past. Boring has been done
to one hundred feet depth, but owing
to the fact that gravel is filling in
in addition to an unexpected contact
with water, tbe work has been
somewhat interfeired with When
plans have been oompleted to overcome these difficulties work will be
continued as heretofore. The evidences of the existence of oil in that
region are as strong as they ever
were, and while it was not anticipated that the operations would bo carried on without difficulties, the fact
of their arising has not diminished
their confidence   in   the  undertaking.

A KENTUCKY FEUD.
Louisville, Ky., Aug. 5.���A special
from London, Ky., says a party of
abont 80 men, nearly equally divided,
have engaged in a rille fight on
Tancaid ranch. It is said the Staplo-
tonB and Hamptons were on one. sine
and the Benges on the other, owing to

Cowes, Aug. 5.���King Edward received the official news of the death
of the Dowager Empress Frederick on
board the Royal yacht today. Tho
yacht's flag was immediately half
masted. King Edward and Queen
Alexandria will leave here for
Marlborough house tomonow. It is
not likely they will start for Berlin
until Wednesday.
Cronberg, Aug. 6 ���At 8 o'clock
this evening Emperor William eon
ducted the members of the Dowager
Empress household into tho death
chamber and led them one by one past
the bedside to take a last farewell of
their mistress.
Cronberg, Aug. 5.���Closely following the announcement of the death.
bells were lolled and flags half mast-
ed. Visitors to the castle began inscribing their names in a book placed
for the purpose in the hall. It is
said that the immediate cause of
death was dropsy accompanying the
cancer. The remarkable vitality of
the Dowager Empress astonished her
physicians. She retained consciousness to the end. The castle grounds
aro surrounded by soldiers and patrolled by Hussars and mounted police.
The blinds are drawn in the windows
of many residences, and all flags wero
at half mast. A little later, the
principal stieeet of Hainbuig was fill
ed with shoppers buying black. Then
came word that the news was false.
There seems little doubt that the
message came from Friederchshoff,
although no one seems to know.
Court Marshal Uaupt, who gave out
the inaccurate announcement has been
summoned to Cronberg. The false
news was telegraphed wildly and
many German cities displayed signs of
mourning, When the official contradiction was sent it was scarcely believed. Soon after nightfall Hmperor
William, accompanied by the Empress and tho Crown Prince drove
back to Homburg. Whether tho body
will lie in state has not yet been
determined. The details for its removal to be interod by the side of tbe
remains of Emperor Frederick will bo
discussed iu Homburg tomorrow. Tho
Dowager Empress knew her days wero
few. She had said farewell to most
of her servants, asking their wishes
when she would be gone. It is understood she has arranged for the
future of noarly eveiy one of them.
She'had expressed a desirei that
not much should be known by the public concerning her disease, lest some
should be saddened by the knowlodgo
of her sufferings. There was much
reluctance in summoning King Edward, as it was not desired that he
should have a long wait.
SHOUT  COUNCIL   MEETING,

amusing incident occurred in connection with tho council meeting. The
mayor met one of thc councillors,after
the meeting was over, and Informed
him that he could not be present at
the meeting. His surprise on being
informed that the council bad met
and transacted all the business can bo

Perusal of the Eastern press makes
it more apparent every day the question of Oriental immigration to tbis
Province will shortly become a very
live question. Two a"ti passed by
the local Legislature,one "to regulate
immigration into liritisli Columbia,"
and tne othei "relating to employment on works can ied on under franchises g ran Un? by private acts,'' will
undoubtedly lie disallowed by the
Dominion Government on account of
the restrictions they pnt on Japanese
immigration to br'tish Columbia.
The Toronto tllobe, the chief Government organ, in discussing their prospects, says:" Mr. SHimi/.u.tho Japanese
Consul on thc Pacific coast, has addressed some polite but firmly-worded
remonstrances to tho Dominion Government, respecting the law, and
the Japanese Government has also protested to tbe liritisli foreign oflice
through the usual diplomatic channels. The retention of the law on the
Statute book would give grave offence
to Japan and seriously interfere with
the amicable understanding which
prevails between the Government of
that country aud tbo Imperial authorities. Tbe British foreign ollice, and
Mr. Chamberlain have cabled to Ottawa setting fuith Imperial objections
to the liritisli Columbia act. There
scums scarcely any doubt but. that the
disallowance of the act will follow the
consideration of the subject by the
cabinet. Tho second bill, in its operation, excludes Japanese from employment on certain Provincial works, and
it is also likely to meet the same
fate."

What will be tlio end of those great
industrial strikes'.' Whither are we
drifting'.' These are questions that,
even tho extreme beat of the dog days
does not keep the press of the world
from discussing. Theie is a regular
epidemic of labor troubles sweeping
over tbis continent and no one seems
able to Intelligently prophesy what
the outcome will be. frof. Goldwin
Smith, Canada's greatest writer and
philosopher, says: "Society at home
is threatened on its industrial side
with perils whicli touch us more nearly than anything in another part of
thc world Wc lire in danger of being
ground between an upper and a lower millstone. The upper millstone is
the colossal greed of the capitalist.
who seeks to sweep all profit into his
owd coffers by destroying the freedom of product inn and making himself tho sole arbiter of price. The
nether millstone is unionist monopoly
whicli puts an end lo the freedom of
labor. It is ililliciilt to say of whicli
side the victory wonld be most injurious to tbe community. I'.iitliei than
go under tin' yoke of either, the
Community may be driven to create a
power strong enough to save it from
both "
They have their Japanese exclusion
agitation on tbe other side of the
line, too. In referring to it Tlie Chicago Post says: "llul, Japan has been
accorded full .quality as a member of
tin, family of nations. Her work in
Cbinft has merited and received universal praise. Bhe bas acted like a
truly civilized power, and discrimination against ber would be iinjiislillable
and preposterous. Congress will not
entertain any proposal for a Japanese
exclusion net. The 'agitation' is a
llarh in tlie pan."

characterized as a useless expense.
Now he is pulling every wire in sight

Tlie efforts of tho heads of the contending sides of the big steel strike

LETTSB PROM MB FRONT,
From
Interesting   Epistle
.lack Klaney.
Mr. John Illaney, of Nelson, receiv-
ixl the following letter from his son
Trooper J. G. B. Rlaney who is serving in tho Constabulary in South Africa :
Vereeninging, Transvaal. June, 1901.
Hear Father,���We are having lots of
hard mnreliing and plenty of excite-
ment where we are now. The Uoers
are both lively and numerous around
the Vunll River here and we have lost
three sentries, killed; and a number
of iv.tr men have neon sick since landing til the Cape, namely Oscar Rob
Inson, George Partridge, Bill Thoiup
son and Sam Conclin, aud quite a few
others from other points iii Kootenay.
So far since leaving I have not known
a moment's sickness, but I take particular eare of myselt anil don't fill up
on muddy water after a maroh like
most of the other fellows do, hut I
always contrive to boil it, oven at the
risk of n CI fine for lighting a fire,
which is not allowed out of town or
camp. The nights are very cold and
thc days burning hot, but from what
I have seen it is a fine antl healthy
climate. As regards mounted police
duty 1 may state that wo are doing
.avalry and scouting work and we
are always at the front of the column,
and two miles ahead, drawing the fire
from any kopjes that may bold Boers
or an ambush, which tho beggars are
continually trying to get us in. We
lwuilnotliiiigof what is going on elsewhere in the shape of fighting or
what is going on at home nol having
received any mail since leaving Ottawa, but we are expecting the mail
to catch up to us boforo very long. A
column of 400 mounted infantry commanded by a snob of a major, marched out from V'ereonging on the pretense of exercise, but really he wont
out to shoot and bring back game for
the officers' laider. Ilis scouts nnd
sergeants warned him for half an hour
that the mounted men approaching
were Hoers, but he laughed at them
and said: "If you think you can
talk better than I can you had better
change   places and horsos with   mo."
In the meantime the Boers had
flanked them on both sidps and commenced a withering rille fire on thorn,
Ihe result being the killing of Capt.
Sectt and 10 troopeis, 1!) severely
wounded 20 horses shot, .10 horses cap-
tuied, HOt roopers captured, including
the brave major who l~tt his nion in
horrible confusion and galloped towards home, but was cut off by the
liners and stripped with all tho other
men to the skin and told to get.nll by
7.'. Boer farmers. It is supposed by
our officers that they would have beeu
wiped out if it had not been for our-
timoly arrival, when the Hoers took to
their heels in great shape. They didn't lose a man,and this is onl y one of
many Boer victories which are never
chronicled unless someone of importance is killed, There is to much saluting, polo, cricket,and Stand-Up collars bore among the offioei-s.and the
enemy come and help themselves to
stores and live stock while tbo oiHcers
arc dining at tlie hotel.

STRIKES A RICH FIND.
"I was troubled for several years
with chronic indigestion and nervous
debility," writes P. J. Green, of
Lancaster, N. II., "No remedy helped
me until I began using Electric Hit
ters, which did me more good than all
the medicines I ever used. They
have also kept my wife in excellent
health for years. She says Electric
Hitters are just splendid for female
troiihles; that they are a grand tonic
and invigorator for weak, run down
women. No other medicine can take
its placo in onr firmly." Try them.

Georgia Minstrels   Delight a Crowded
Bouse Uist Night.
A crowded house greeted the Georgia Minstre'.s at the Opera "house last
night, and the large audience thoroughly enjoyed   the various numbers.
The first part included a number of
new and very funny jokes and several
musical numbers of more than ordi-
naiy merit.. The ballad "One Yoar
Ago" sung by R. L. Molson, who has
a Hplcndid baritone voice, was probably the beslk number. Mr. Slieids���
King of thu slack wire���did some
clever and during work and performed
several unique   feats.
The Alabama (.uaitelto rendered
several selections in flno style and
tbeir singing wus one of the features
of tbe evensing. Ilousely Bros., with
llieir musical novelties delighted the
auilii'iiee especially with their al.mi-
mnii chimes. The parade of the
Ilia ik Watch wus a decided novelty
and t, he expert and accurate movements in thu intricate drill were very
much eujoyod. Lew Croft and Ed
'1'iilliver looked after the monologue
fiul of the olio in n very cnpablo man-
nor and sang several songs in good
"tylo The concluding number was a
"cry laughable sketch, "Fun on the
"Id Plantation aud Trouble in the
Chicken Coop," which brought roars
of laughter and applausu and rounded
out what was tn everyone a very en
joyahla evoning.
The company has de.ldad to repeat
the entertainment tonight when the
price of admission for children will
he reduced to -.lc The opera liouse
should be packed again tonight as the
"how is a very enjoyable ono and will
givo anyone two solid hours of
amusement.
