Tenth Year
Admiral Seymour and  His
Column Relieved at
Surrounded and Entrenched.
He Made a Brilliant
Fate of Legations In Pekin Is
Still an   Unsolved
London, June 29.���4 a. in.���The
casualties of the International force
attackit>K Tien Tsin were the following: Americans, killed Hand wounded
2: liritish, killed .1 and wounded 1;
tlormans, killed 15, wounded 871
Russians, killed 1(1, wounded HT.
The gun fire of the Americana and
liritish is described as licautiful.
After the relieving force pushed on
to relieve Admiral Seymour, the Chinese regulqn, under lleueral Nieh,
says a despatch from Shanghai,
again attacked Tien Tsin fiercely and
bombarded the foreign settlement
with a torrlble lire.
Colonel Din-ward, British, cnminand-
v,l tbe column that relieved Admiral
Seymour. American marines participated In the achievement. The Admiral was found entrenched ami surrounded by Immense masses of Chinese! who were driven off by the ro-
, ^1 lievtng column after a brisk fight.
His men bad made a brilliant resistance, never failing in courage for 18
days' of continuous fighting.
During ten days the men were on
quarter rations. They started with
provisions for ten days and tbey could
have held out a day or two longer.
The column was a few miles beyond
LoftK. Deeming it hopeless to attempt
tu break through tbo hordes, Admiral
Seymour essayed a night retreat to
Tien Tsin, but he came into collision
with a Htrong force of Chinese, arriving from the northeast, and could
neither advance nor retreat. There
was nothing to do but to entrench and
stand a siege,
Tbey vainly attempted heliogruphic
communication. The Chinese display -
fanatical courage ill the attack. Four
thousand Russians left Tien Tsin four
days after Admiral Seymour, but they
never got in touch with him. Hallway
communication from Taku to Tien
Tsin has lieen restored and the force
iu advancing towards l'ekin. Fighting waa iu progress on Wednesday in
the the vloininy uf Tsejtsc (Mm Lln.
Large preparations are be made to
support and reinforce the l'ekin relieving column.
"ii.Ism troops of all nations, largely
Japanese have been landed. The fate
of the members of the Legations is
Htill a mystery. If they are alive and
unharmed at l'ekin, the Chinese Government deserves some credit, the
Shanghai correspondents think, for
ri-Htraiuing the fanatical tribes.
The shanghai correspondent of  the
Daily Telegraph, wiring at BiOB p.m
yesterday says:
"It Is reported on good Chinese authority that the (lovernment, alarmed
by the foreign military preparations,
has Issued an edict ordering the peremptory suppression of the Hoxers and
aiinounciug a decision to protect tbe.
Legations at all hazards."
However this may be, the British
Consul at'Slianghai received no definite
information yesterday. The Daily
Mxpress correspondent says, that
while solemnly promising complete
abstention from warlike preparation,
the Chinese are mounting several six-
ineh guns at the Woo Sung forts.
Three British wurships have sailed
from BongJ Kong to reinforce the
allied squadron at Shanghai
The southern Provinces are sending
troops toward l'ekin and the exodus
of Chinese of all classes from Shanghai continues at the rate of from 10,-
ioOO to IS, 000 a day. Russian prestige
lias been injured during the recent
fighting and an anti-Hussiau rising in
the    I,inn   Tong   peninsula    Kussian
Manchuria is predicted,
Che Foo, June 28, via Shanghai,
noon.���Admirnl Seymour's expedition
has been relieved, having failed to
connect with l'ekin. There is no news
from Pekin. The Russian lleueral,
Sehlelle, commanding the combined
forces of LP,000 men, is supposed to be
proceeding to l'ekin.
Admiral Seymour's expedition is returning to Tien Tsin. His force has
suffered greatly. It Is estimated that
from 40,000 to 00,000 Chinese troops
are now before l'ekin. Hoxers from
all sections are swarming there.
The Russian (leneral in command
of the reiief force had decided, in view
of Saturday's heavy fighting and
marching, that one day's rest for the
troops was essential, and that the advance should not be resumed until today. Meanwhile Admiral Seymour'a
heliograph flashed a message that his
position was desperate and that he
could only hold out two days. The relief started at dawn.
London, June 88.���Admiral Bruce,
in command of the liritish forces at
Taku, reports to the British Admiralty the following casualties: At Taku
JuOC 24, one seaman wounded; at Tien
Tsin up to the forenoon of June 23,
four seamen killed; Lieutenants Ster-
11 n, Powell and Wright, Commander
Heat ty and 44 midshipmen and seamen
Winnipeg, Man., June 28.��� Sir
Henri Joly, new Lieutenant-Governor
of liritish Columbia, passed through
Wiunipeg yesterday bound for Victoria. In passing through Reglna this
afternoon Sir Henri was welcomed at
tbe station by Lieutenant-Governor
and Madame Forget of the Northwest
Winnipeg. June 28.���It has been decided to hold extra sittings of the
Legislature this week in order to permit of prorogation on Saturday morning. There is some doubt still existing as to whether all business will be
completed this week, and adjournment may not take place until Wednesday. The Prohibition Hill was
kgatn under consideration by the Law
Amendments Committee today.
St. Cnrtharlnes, Ont., June 88.���
Alsiut one-third of the extensive
lumber yard of (ieorge Wilsou and
Coy was destroyed by tire yesterday.
The fire was discovered about 10
o'clock bnt before the llreiueii could
get to work bad made such headway that several piles of lumber were
in flames which spread rapidly. The
firemen were driven back Btep by step
but after several hours hard work got
the fire under control confining it to
one section of the yard. Aliout 810,-
000 loss, covered by insurance,
Ottawa, Ont., June 28.���A final
meeting of tho Emergency Rations
Committee was beld last night to
prepare the report. The result will
be that tomorrow there will be two
reports presented to the House, minority and majority reports. The
majority report will show that the
Minister of Militia waa ln no wny
opeu to the charges laid against bim
by Mr. Monk, and that the goods
were regularly purchased and regularly paid for.
The minority report will not adhere to all the charges preferred by
Monk, but it will lu a great way declare the Minister to be guilty of
culpable negligence, although no
proof is forthcoming. In fact those
who were parties to making these
charges are now endeavoring to lot
themselves down easily.
Ottawa, June 28.���Mr.' Illair gave
out an interesting statement of the
Intercolonial Railway. He showed
the earnings for the current year to
have exceeded the expenditure by
18120,000, and pointed out that the
I road would pay this year interest on
every dollar Invested in It. The earnings reached 84,530,000- or threc-quar-.
tors of a million more than last year,'
which was a record on the road.
Windsor, _Ont., June 88.���E. D.
Craig, the first one of the Windsor
boys to return from South Africa, arrived home yesterday. There was a
large gathering at the depot to meet
him. The crowd included a number
of pretty girls and when young Craig
stepped from the car he received
"Hobson" greetings.

"Gold   Brick" Operators Arrested In
Montreal, June 28.���Three men giving their names as Stephen J. Pratt,
Johu Saunders aud A. C, White were
arrested this morning charged with
attempting to sell a gold brick -to
Lot-in Gordon, a hotel proprietor of
Danville, Que., and his, son, W. J.
Gordon, for 85,000.
Pratt represented himself lo be looking for an old chum, Alonzo Gordon,
in order to get his assistance in securing certain mining rights in Arizona,
and not finding him concluded his
namesake would do as well.
An Indian, personated by Saunders,
was represented as the past owner,
and a gold brick was produced as a
product of the mine. White, who bad
a room at tbe Windsor, was brought
into the game as the assayer who pronounced the brick gold.
Oordon aocompanied Pratt and Saunders to the Point St. Charles branch
of the Bank of Toronto to get the
money. The manager of the bank
was auspicious ami telephoned for the
police. Pratt and Saunders, growing
suspicious, made off, but were later

the purchase had been made, telling
them they had been duped and that it
would be useless trying to catch him.

W, II. Saudi ford, manager of the
Bosun Mine, which is Situated near
new Denver, arrived in Nelson last
evening. In the course of an interview he said, "We have made a record
shipment this month, having sent 140
ear loads to the Trail smelter. Nearly
two-thirds of the month was spent in
development work. The ore which is
galena is giving good returns. The
smelter returns per ear average from
81,200 to 8!,r>00." They are now
working 84 men at the mine, and
have a large am,mm of ore blocked
out. In the property they have run
five tunnels and have found ore in
four of them. The ledge proper is
from two to five feet wide. It is a
true vein as there are two distinct

the ore contains zinc. This variety of
ore is shipped to Antwerp. Belgium,
���nuking it the only mlue of liritish
Columbia which does a purely commercial business with that country.

War Office Submits Roberts'
Correspondence on
He Deeply Deplores Certain
London, June 20.���2:30 a, in.���
Lord Roberts bus sent bulletins of
two small fights, occurring on June
86 nnd 27, in which the Boers were
discomfited. In a despatch from Pretoria, dated yesterday, he says:
"A small force of mounted troops
with two guns, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Dreiper, was attacked
by the enemy under Prefers and Nel
on the morning of June 20, seven
miles north of Senekai. They beat
off the enemy and burned'their laager.
Our casualties were three killed and
10 wounded.
"General Hunter, temporarily commanding Inn Hamilton's brigade,made
one march yesterday from Hiedelderg
toward Frankfort without meeting
any opposition. The enemy attacked
our Hoodevul Spruit post on the railway yesterday, but were easily beaten
off by a detachment of the Derbyshire
Light Infantry, the West Australian
Mounted Infantry, a Li-pounder, aud
an armored train.
"General Baden-Powell reports   the
capture of an influential Boer named
Kay who was endeavoring to raise a
commando in the Rustenbergdistrict.
A patrol brought iu over one hundred
rilles and more than 4,(SMI rifles and
1,000 inferior pieces have been taken
during tlie last few days. He declares
that thirty Boers have arrived at Itus-
teiiberg going to their homes from
Delarey's commando. They would
have left before if tbey had seen the
proclamation Which was carefully
withheld by the Hoer authorities."
Lord Roberts said that Wednesday,
June 27, was a record market day in
Pretoria for Hoer farmers selling produce. Parties of Boors still hang on
General Buller's Hunks. Mr. F. It.
Ituriiham, the American scout, is invalided.

Now London, Conn., Juno 28.���The
Varsity boat race, which was rowed
here on the Thames ItIver today, was

she was handicapped by having a
"sub" in the boat. The race was a
close one, the official time being ns
follows: Yale, 21 minutes 12 1-8 seconds; Harvard, 21 minutes .17 Ml seconds. The length of the course was

Arthur Orton knew more about truth

London, July 88.���The exposures regarding the hospitals in South Africa,
which began with a three-column letter in The Times Monday from Mr.
W.   A.   Burdette-Coutts,   Conservative
Member of Parliament for Westminster, detailing the great suffering endured by the soldiers owing to mismanagement, led to a number of questions in the House of Commons today.
In res|R>nso to these the Government
leader, Mr. A. J. Balfour, the First
Lord of tin- Treasury made a long
statement, during the course of which
he said that so far as the Government
was aware not any of the sufferings
of tlie sick or wounded were due to Insufficiency in the supplies furnished.
He then proceeded to read extracts
from the correspondence with Lord
Robert! on the same subject, In which
the liritish Coinmuuiler-in-Chief, in
South Africa, dwelt on the dillieiillies
of transport, owing to his rapid
advance. He could quite understand
that people, imperfectly experienced
in these matters, were concerned nt
hearing of the hardships the sick and
wounded hnd to undergo.    He   said he
did not  wish to shirk responsibility
or screen anyone, and suggested a
committee of medical men and persons of sound common mum- should
proceed to South Africa to investigate
the charges.
Mr.    Balfour     Informed  the   House
that  the   Government   agreed    to the
appointment of an Independent committee as suggested by Lord KoIh-iih
and he would propose a nominal grant
for the army medical corps so that I he
House would have an opportunity to
thresh out the matter.

1). J. BEATON, Editor and Manager
Mr. Ford is very careful to send over
to The New York Tribune the Information thnt the London newspapers refused to become the leant imitated over
the nomination of Mr. McKinley for
another Presidential term. He would,
indeed, give the impression thai ti��'
Indifference displayed bordered closely
on the hostile, His American readers
are asked to believe that In lireut
llrituin there is little esteem for Mr.
McKinley, and the moHt absolute Indifference to the fortunes of the lte-
publl'oan party, lioth are disliked because of their extreme views ou protection, for which little .sympathy exists in free trade England, The nomination was received with coldness,
amounting almost to a frost, and The
Tribune's able correspondent takes occasion to let it be known.
It probably requires a little stretch
ofthe imagination to believe that the
English papers and Mr,   Ford   are  in
collusion with the Republican leaders
in the United States to secure the reelection of Mr. McKinley. Hut a suspicion of this will arise in the face of
so much protesting. Few Presidents,
if any, have stood higher in the esteem of the Uritisb public than has
Mr. McKinley, ami if some other person had secured the nomination at
Philadelphia the other day the newspapers would have been much surprised and disappointed. Over in
Great Britain they have settled down
to the conviction that as long as Mr.
McKinley is head of the Executive,
the United States will not be exploited in the interests of an enemy, Perhaps the evolution of an imperialism
among our Republican neighbors has
brought the two nations into' closer
sympathy, but whatever the cause the
relations were never so cordial between Westminster and Washington
as they have been since Mr. McKinley
became President.
If the  London papers were really as
frosty in their comments as  Mr. Ford
represents, it can mean only that they
are taking the measure of the American   people.    These   are   a   queer lot.
The  average   American, although the
greatest reader   of newspapers   in the
world, is   the most   ignorant.    He   is
the most  ignorant   because   he   never
reads 11 word   of   any   other   country
but his own, and believes there   is no
other worth   reading   about.    To him
the United   States   is   the   beginning
and the end of  all creation.      Until n
few   years   ago   his   newspaper,   with
very   rare   exceptions,   never   by  any
chance   published   a   bit   of    foreign
newa.      Among   a people  so ignorant
it was always   easy   to stir up the old
Anglophobia, and   in   every Presidential election the   liosses   harped   upon
this string.    There have been elections
in which hatred of   tlreat Britain has
been a more   ]M>tent   factor  than   any
special line of   domestic   policy.    English   newspapers   have   observed this
before today, ami have sufficiently regarded it lo put some constraint upon
themselves In   meddling with   the affairs of their cousins.      A    word   said
in favor of one party was taken up by
the other as strongest proof that it was
in favor of  the hated   English, while
an election al all without British gold
on one   side   or   the other was an im-
possibility,    Today tbe London papers
are deciding to keep out   of   it, knowing that   the   least   friendly word for
Mr. McKinley would be nuts   for the
partisans of Mr. Bryan.    They ate, indeed, a queer lot. are these Americans)
veritable babes in the   affairs   of   the
world, but   with   expanding  notions,
now that they have discovered, through
the lessons   of Culm   and   the   Philippines, that they arc not   the only people on earth.
1'tsters who drew up the Constitution,
and was overlooked in the public discussions. The commercial men, the
great majority of the lawyers, and
the bankers wish t(i do away with the
limitation, and so do the majority of
the people who talk about the matter.
Indeed they are amazed to learn that
the proposed Constitution had not
been submitted to the Imperial (iov
eminent before it was submitted to
the people here, when the objection
could have been taken in better time.
The Governors of the Colonies must
certainly have neglected their duties
in this matter. A minority have the
curious notion that because the people
voted for the Constitution, right or
wrong���it must go through without
change. They calmly propose to alter
the terms of the partnership without
consulting the chief partner. This
narrowness of view is one of the chief
evils of the insularity of Australia,
and the petty parish politics that has
been the result nf its divisions. "
In a paper contributed to The
Forum Mr. John Charlton, without
intending it, tells in brief figures
what the preferential tariff has done
for Great Britain. During the last
fiscal year Canada sold to the Mother
Country nearly three times as much
as to the United States, but curiously
enough bought from the United States
nearly three times as much as from
the Mother Country. Here are the

exercise their Ingenuity in devising a

into the mitt of the United States.

London, June 88.���Tho War Office
has Issued correspondence with Lord
Roberts regarding the charges of Mr.
Hunlet I'oilttH.
On June Ith bis attention was called
In brief telegrams to tbe allegations
and also to other complaints of a
general break-down iii the hospital
system. Two days later he replied in
part as follows:
" The-principal medical ollicer reported the arrangements at Kroonstadt
were in all respects in good order and
Lord Methuen said they were thoroughly satisfactory. I was deeply distressed at being unable to make suitable arrangements for tbe sick on onr
lirst "arrival at Kroonstadt. lint it is
obvious tbat a certain amount of suffering is inseparable from the rapid
advances of a large army into an
enemy's country."
On June DO, .the War Oflice cabled
Lord RobertB that disquieting reports
regarding tbe hospital were accumulating and asked him if anything
could be done and particularly
whether more nurses were needed.
(in June 85, Lord Roberts replied,
saying that be did not wish to shirk
responsibility or screen tbe shortcomings of the medical corps and
suggested a committee of Inquiry,
He said there bad been an abnormal
number of sick at   llloemfonteln, due
to the exhausting nature of the march
and the terrible, unsanitary condition
at the camp at Paardeberg, where tbe
only water available for drinking
flowed from the Hoer camp, higher
up. where the river waa crowded with
decomposing animals and also witb a
considerable number of wounded after
the fight on March lulli.
To improvise accommodations at
llloemfonteln for such a number,
which had become 7000 before be left
llloeinfoutein, was no easy task, said
Lord Roberts. No tents were carried
and the public buildings had to be
turned into hospitals.
In three months there bad been i',.-
789admissions to the hospital of patients Buffering   fi i   entertlo fever,
while the deaths numbered I,.170.
about i\ por cent. Lord Robert* observed that he did not know whether
this would be an abnormal rate in a
civil hospital in peace times, but if
the rates were abuormal.it was due to
the exhausted State of the men and
not to the neglect of tin. medical
Toronto. June 98.���The Canadian
delegates to the World's Chamber of
Commerce meeting assisted ill the unanimous carrying this morning of a
resolution urging the Imperial Government lo appoint a Hoyal Commission
to consider trade relations. All
Canadian resolutions would thereupon
be withdrawn. Regarding the Colonial
contribution to the Imperial Army and
Navy. Mr. Iladrill of Montreal, proposed that the colonies should contribute and urged the Imperial Government to convene an Imperial conference to consider Ihe whole question. Mr. Qeoflrlon of Montreal, opposed the proposal, lie said Canada
did the beat she could for defence out
of sympathy and did not desire Imperial taxation. The resolution was
adopted with three or four dissentients, Neville M. Lubbock moved
a resolution requesting the imperial
Government to enter into a convention with Austria, Germany and other
[lowers for abolition of the sugar
bounties. The Secretary of the Man-
cheater Chamber begged the Canadian
delegates not to take part in the discussion in which they were not concerned.
