Berlin, Auff. 3. Emperor William's
sudden decision to abandon his programme to visit Erodcn, Hamburg and
other places, owing to the news from
Freidricbshof, (about the health of,
the Dowager Empress Frederick) at-
tniets much attention here. It is
known that His Majesty anticipated
with the keenest interest welcoming
Field Marshall Von Waldersee personally, on the latter's retuin from China, intending to make the ceremony
a great patriotic occasion. The Emperor's abandonment of tho plans, is
therefore, regarded as meaning that
the condition of his mother is most
serious.
Prof. Renvers was at Freideriehsliof
this week and made a much longer
stay there than usual. The Taunu-
hote, a locnl newspaper of the vicin-
ijy, said yesterday that the condition
of Empress Frederick had grown much
worse. Sho no longer goes out aud
His Majescy is expected at Friedrich-
shof as soon as possible. It is behoved that the Crown Prince Frederick
William who is booked for the opening of the international Zoological
Corgress, August 12, will not, atloud
the ceremony, but will go to Freid-
riehshof.
The tariff bill continues tc. he.discussed in a lively manner. It is
generally recognized that much depends upon the attitude of the south
tlorinan oabinels and during tlio pas:t
few days the semi olllcinl utterance
there take the cue of the North Gorman Gazette that the bill is only tentative. But, it is regarded as certain
that South German olllcials desire
considerable changes.
Regarding the bill's chances in the
Ruichstag it is everywhere recognized
that the Balance of power will rest
with the Centrist party. Therefore tho non-Centrist press, this week,
has been eagerly watching for indications of the Centrist attitude. The
Centrist papers, however, carefully
abstain from committing themselves.
But now the Cologne Volks Zeitung
prints an editorial which is being telegraphed all over the country, coining
out strongly for tho tariff bill. The
editorial admits that some duties may
be changed, and some perhaps further increased but the Centrists aro
ready to support Iho measures, sub-
stantlnllyin its present form. The
writer of the editorial a~ks who will
be frightened b'l Russian "big talk"
when it is remembered that Russia
has only the Gorman market for her
surplus of rye. An Austro-Russian
t.irilT alliance against Germany is
responsible since Austria herself ex
ports grain. Tne letter further points
out that the United Stnl,eH is fur less
indignant about the tariff bill than
the German press wishes, ln this eon
nection the VoiBlolie Zeitung prints a
cable despatch from New York
saving that Ambassador White advises Washington to send Mr, l~ck-
hlll here as bis successor to handle
tho tariff question. Tht correspond*
ent of the Associaed l'ross wrote to
Mr. White on the subject and received
a telegraphic reply taying "Nothing
knoivn here about the mutter "
Cronberg, Aug 8.���Emperor William's
resolve to   hasten    here is due   to   the
fact that Ihe Dowager Empress   Frederick     had   a      serious    faillure  of
strength     yesterday      evening.    Tho i
condition of   the   Empress,   however, |

At last the Nelson sports have found
out what they can play so as to bring
laurels to the home team. Yesterday
the cricket match between Nelson
and Rossland resulted in a decisive
victory for the home club by a score of
205 to 89, leaving Nelson ahead by
170 runs. The game was not up to
the standard of first class crickot,
much of the game being of a very poor
character, especially the fielding of
the Rossland team, which clearly indicated tbat they, ns well as the home
team, require a great amount of practice to make themselves in a position
to put up a worthy game. By far the
best player in the game yesterday,
was Wilson of the home team, who,
single handed, beat the visiting team,
in a single innings, witli 22 runs to
spare. In the first inings he scored 38
runs and won the match, plus 55
i'jus, and in each case was caught
out. His score was made up of four
sixes and fifteen fours and when he
reached the century mark in the second innings, he waa rewarded with
an ovation, and on retiring with a
score of 111 runs he was enthusiastically cheered. Others on the home
team who played well were J. Laing
Stocks, who as wicket keeper made
a, splendid showing, his batting being
Out short by being caught out early
in the innings.   Mr. Ford also played
ell and succeeded in adding a good
score to the home acoount. Elliott
carried his bat out in thc second innings, with a soore of 20 runs, and also
distinguished himsel' in the field hy
a splendid catch from tho bat of W.
E. Hodges. In the bowling Forbes
and Wilson did good exeoution. Foi
the visitors by far the best player was
Hodges, who made the only big score
for tho Rossland team, being caught
out after stacking up 30 runs. The
bowlers who played havoc with the
home stumps were Hodges and Morris.
Following aie tho scores:
Rossland���First innings, 19; second
innings, 70.
Nelson���First innings, 80; second
innings, 185.

Rosenberger Syndicate Opening up Several Properties.
Mr. A,F. Rosenberger returned Friday from the Fish river camp, where
he has been looking after the interests of tho Rosenberger syndicate,
which in addition to its other properties in the Lardeau has taken a working bond on the Cambouvue group of
n:na claims, on the west side of Fish
river. The claims were staked last
spring and are turning out very
rich. There are six distinot parallel
veins traversing the property, all carrying good values in free milling
gold ore. No. 1 vein has a width of
forty-five feet, the oro averaging $0 to
98. In No. 2 vein the ore is of very
high grade running $40 to $00, and
thc vein is ten feet wide. Between
the second and third vein there is a
formation which yields soft decomposed schist and quartz giving from $8 to
310 in gold values. This formation
is about 30 feet wide. No. 3 vein is
similar in size and grade uf ore to
No. 3. No. 4 is eight feet wide and
runs 912 to $10 per ton. No. 5 is also eight feet wide carrying gold values of $5 to $8. No. 0 is eight to ten
feet wide and goes $4 to fO. It is estimated there is fully half a million
dollars worth of ore in sight. About
3,09(1 feet below the workings two
large veins have been discovered on
the property. A creek passes down
through tbe group, having at one
point a fall of fifty feet near which a
mill site has been obtained by the
syndicate, there being between two
and three thousand inches of water
available. Fifteen men are at work
on the property and a crown grant
is being applied for. On the .Oyster
group, on Lexiugton creek, on which
a working bond has been taken, ten
men uro at work. An open tunnel
is being run on a vein whioh is 40
feet wide where crosscut. The values
carried are low, but are in free milling gold. On the Criterion claim, one
of the Oyster group, one vein found
has a width from two to fifteen feet,
aud the oro chute has been opened up
for a distance of 500 feet, tho values
running from $25 to $85. A galena

New Y'ork, Aug, 3.���Another effort
to perfect a truce between the great
army of steel workers and the giant
corporation which employs it, bus
failed and tonight the conflicting sides
are as sharply and widely divided as
ever.
The leaders on other side, met here
again this morning and after a day
of fruitless conference and ditoussion
parted in a spirit that shows no tinge
of conciliation. Neither side would
surrender 11 position or concode a
point in tbe dispute in whioh they
aro involved and present indications
point to a renewal with .vigor of the
struggle.
The first conference of the day
was between President SehalTer and
twelve of his associates od the executive board of the amalgamated association and a group of officials of the
United Statos Steel Corporation, headed by J. P Morgan and President
Schwab. At the end of an hour tho
conferences parted having failed to
roach an agreement. The second conference was participated in only by
tbe olllcials of thc Amalgamated Association. It was a long session, last
ing over two hourB, at the close of
which the following statoroent waB
given to the president:
"We the mcniber8 of tho executive
board of the Amalgamated Association of iron, steel and tin workers,
considering it incumbent upon us to
enlighten the public through the press
with reference to the present relations between our association and
the United Statos Steel Corporation
wish to stato that tho officials of the
United States Stoel Corporation instead of resuming negotiations whore
they wero suspended at the confeionce
held on July 11, 12 and 13 have withdrawn the propositions made at the
time and are now offering much loss
than they agreed spon to sign for
then. We desire to preface our proposition by directing attention to the
fact that it is a modification of that
which was offered originally. At the
last conference, as at the ono preceding it, we required the signature of
the scales for all the millB owned and
operated by the United States Steel
Corporation, while in thc proposition
given we usk that the scale be Bigncd
lor none but those mills which aro organized and where the men .ceasing to
work have Dignified their desiio to bo
connected with thc Amalgamated
Association. This modification has
been made because tho trust olllcials
declared that we wished to force mull
in to the organization against their
will ami desire. We, therefore, asked
thai the scale bo signed for only those
men who desired."
New York, Aug.   3.���Tho   executive
board of the Amalgamated Association adjourned at 4.15 p. m. A
lengthy statement was given out bv
tho board the principal feature of
which was a Statement that the
strike was still on. The member! of

To revert again to the commission
on freight rates���there are shippers
in Nelson who have given It as their
opinion that nothing will come of
it, however dearly the evidence adduced will prove that tne railways are
unjustly discriminating against certain points. A press dispatch tells
a different story. Thc best that could
be hoped was that the tiove.cment
would take some action when Prof.
McLean hands in his report. Uut
tho railways ilo not seem to bo waiting for this. They aro already feeling the pressure of public opinion
and bowing to it. it. would appear
that the dfselosure of the disc lmiua-
tion of tlie 'freight rate on corn from
Windsor in favor of Detroit which
was made by the Windsor Hoad of
Trade before Prof. McLean, and mentioned in yesterday's Minor, has led
to a quick rediess of the g icvance.
A reduction of nine cec s per hcnd.ed
pound, on coin has h. en announced.
The local rale from Wiod.-.o.- to St.
John, Halifax and po'uts in Nova
Scotia was 21:, cents. The new rale
to there point! is 18X cents and the
export rate is still lower. Now if
tho C. P. II. will make Nelson a terminal poi.it we will wire P.O.".

sufficiently large areas cannot be
leased for the purpose. It. is the same
story here, legislators so very much
afraid that .someone will get rich that
they iiiauo enactments calculated to
make everyone pooi-. If the law in
West Australia were changed hy-
daiillc mining could V.1 carried on
with very remunerative results;,!some
of the laws here wero ciianged there

VERY STRONG PROTEST.
Editor of The Miner:
Sir���It is a pity there are not onough
respectable women to get together,
and give the editor of that low, paltry, filthy monthly paper published
lately, a sound whipping in public,
I'or his insults. (1 might suggest
they wear glovos during the process.)
1 might also suggest to any thoughtless youngster leading that paper, and
thinking it clover or witty or true
to life, that he first look at_tho results on the thing that edits it. He
oan then see at a glance the cll'iiots of
having such a moon, benstial, puny
little mind. First look at the expression of the creature. Slyness, small
mindednoss, envy and hatred of his
snpe lors in refinement, otc, is clear
ly written on every feature.
Blackening others will never make
that object, white. Look at the puny,
distorted. trembling, played-out
limbs of it.
Surely it will not take long for the
biggest and most hopeless fool to see
tho results of his ideas of morality,
on himself alone. That thing thinks
lhat by pouring insults on anyone
who objeetB to his lllthy paper being
circulated amongst thoughtless young
people growing up with thoso ideas
Instilled into them, that ho can be free
to say what he likos and continue
selling his paper.
That bo is clover, I deny. Ilis
match hotu in iutolloet aud education
can bo found in any slum of any large
city, all over the woild, where obscene wit is studied from childhood
up, and ilows as freely as his.
One would judgti by bis writings
that tho buller part o' this creature's
life, snico childhood, bus been spent
in the study of that special style of
wit, ami intern* p.altry spite. I havo
kept one ot hi* papers for a futuio
occasion. Part o, it has been consid-
red treasonable by some, and an article of that kind convicted au editor in Australia.
His paper most likely goes down
anil is bought hy a certain class of
people of Imn own style, or who have
drifted into it, In the days when the
Kootenay was a little less civilized
than at present.
Hut hi does the majority of miners
n great injustice    If ho supposes their
Intellect ami  standard  of   morality
does not soar above bis paper. Muny
of them could put him to shamo if
they could only put their thoughts
into writing, li, surely Is not thev
thnt make this paper soil ot all,
(after reading his lirst), bnt those so
oallod "gentlemen" in clean, boiled
shirts, etc., whoso money Is made not
by honest worth, hut in setting foul
Imps for our poor miners to get their
hard earned money, when they come
down to the foot of the mountains, |
after a lung   period   of isolation,   lt
will   not   be   necessary to  name   the
paper. ,

of incredulity, "Yon surely do not be
lieve    in   the    inspiration     of    the
Bible'.'' [replied,"I most assuredly do,
else I should certainly be engaged   in
aoiue   othei   work."    Believing    that
many honest thinners share the views
suggested   by my friend's quotation, it
may  not  be   amiss   to   present   very
briefly n   few of   the     conaideratioUB
which    lead at. least one person to tbe
conviction that  this  much-questioned
book   is of   mora than human   origin,
anJ. constitutes Cod's message of writ-
tmtli to humanity.    And here let
say that 1 have uo sympathy whatever with  that   arrogant   dogmatism
winch   demands a bliuil,  unreasoning
acceptance   of the   Bible   simply  because "the clergy" or   "the   church"
or some   "council" of   men   has  declared it to be the word   of   God.    As
we'll ask me to believe  that the   earth
is the centre of the   universe   because
the   Ptolemaic   theory   of  astronomy
was for twelve  centuries  accepted by
huniantiy and endorsed by the chinch,
or because   the  majority of   the   race
still   believe   this delusion,    The Divine cull to  humanity   is,    "Come let
ns reason together,'' and   why should
anyone speaking in God's name change
the mandate.    The  Book   of Creation
is written   in characters  iutelligiblie
to  human   reason;   uhy   should   the
Hook ol Revelation, if from the   same
hand, be   thought to   appwal  only  to
blind sredulity,    Upon its   own   self-
evidence   therefore   let   the Bible rest
its claims to acceptance, and by  Itself
stand or fall.      Perhaps  no argument
has weighed more against   the   lliblo
in the popular mind than that which is
based upon its alleged   contradictions.
It   may   seem   strange   therefore,   to
urge harmony as a prime argument in
its behalf.    But I am satisBed that to
him   who   will   study  patiently   and
weigh    candidly    aud   carefully  the
book itself, the harmony of its several
parts  und   the   consistency   and continuity of   its   progiessivo   unfolding
of great   truths   will   prove a marvel
rivalled only by that of the  harmony
of the universe itself.   Think of it and
answer if here at least is not one   authenticated miracle.    Sixty-six books,
written by   thirty   or   forty different

Hot Weather Food
The selection of food for hot weather is an inipiiitant question. We
should avoid an ex.'ess of fats, cut
down the butler ration and indulge
more freely in fruits and food easy
of digestion. One meat meal per day
is sullieient during lint weather.
An ideal breakfast is Grape-Nuts,
treated with a little cream (which,
by the way, supplies the necessary
fat in a very digestible form) 0 cup
of Postum Cereal Fund Coffee, hot, or
if cohl. it should hnve a little lemon
juice sijuee/ed in :theo son e fruit,either cooked or raw ; also perhaps two
