Tenth Year
Lord Roberts Entered Pretoria Yesterday
at Two O'Olook-Botha Proposed
Armistice but Surrendered
No Loss of Life Accompanied Occupation
Fight of the Previous Day Did the
Work-Turbulent Scenes
in London.
London. June 5, 11:10.��� The Wnr
Offloe has received the following from
Lord Roberts :
"Pretoria, June S, 12:55 p. ni,���Jnst
before dark yesterday the enemy was
beaten back from nearly all tho positions they had been holdiug and Ian
Hamilton's uiouuteil Infantry followed
them withiu li.iiiiu yards of Pretoria,
through which they retreated hastily.
Delisle then sent nn officer with a flag
of tram into the town demanding its
surrender in my name.
"Shortly before midnight I was
awakoued by two officials of the
South African Republic, Captain
Sunberg, military secretary to (Joni-
iiiiin.iuiii General Botha and a general
���ollicer of the lioer army, who brought
me a letter fnnn Botha proposing Hn
armistice for the purpose of settling
the terms of the surrender. I replied
that I would gladly meet the Commandant General the next moruiug
but that I was not prepared to discuss
any terms, as the surrender of the
town must lie iiiK-oiidlliumil. I asked
:a reply by daybreak as I had ordered
the troops to march oil the town as
as soon as it was light.
Id hia reply Botlui told me
ne hnd decided not to defend
Pretoria and that he trusted that
the womeu, children and properly would
tie proteeled.
"At 1 am. today, while ou the line
ot march, I wns met by three of the
priuoipal officials with a Hug of truce,
Muting their wish to surrender thu
town. It waa arranged 1 but Pretorin
should bo takeu possession of by Her
Majesty's troops ut 2 o'olook this afternoon.
"Mrs   Botha   nud  Mrs.   Kruger are
both In Pretoria.   Some of the British
prisoners have been taken away but
tho majority nre still at Watervall.
Over a huudied of the officers are iu
Pretoria. The few I have seen nre
looking well.''
Boer Capital enme as a surprise and explained the Comniuudei-in-OIiief's reticence. It is evidcut that Lord Roberta' himself deferred attacking until
all his columns were ready to co-operate.
Judging from Ixird Roberta phras-
iug, the occupation of Pretoria will not
be accompanied by loss of life. Presumably the Boer forces which so pre-
sisteutly opposed the British advance
at Six Mile Spruit got away.
I'he latest press despatches from a
representative of tho Associated Press
at Pretorin,, dated June 3, quote General Botha us saying: So long as I
can still count on our thousands of wil
ling men we must not dream of retreat
or throwing away our independence."
General Botha, it is added, aunounccd
tho regulations appointing a special
committee to preserve order, substituting military control for that of the
committee. General Lucas addressing the Burghers ou the church steps,
told them all to stand firm. Thus
though their efforts were pitifully futile, it is evident that a few faithful
Boer generals were working desperately to resist the overwhelming force of
Lord Robert's army.
The War Office bus information that
oue of the first things done by Lord
Roberts after the occupation of Pretoria was to direct General French to
relieve the British prisoners confined
at Watervall.
Loudon. June Pi���At. two o'clock this
afternoon, almost eight months after
tbe declaration of war, Lord Roberts
ontered Pretoria. The Commander-in-
Chief fiillllled his promise made to the
Uuards at Bloemfontein to lead them
into the Capital of llie Transvaal, and
I'jigln-nl is celebrating the event with
enthusiasm, Througlintit the length
and breadth of the country, the uews
��� I>i<'n. 1 like wild lire.
Based on the memory of European
wars, wheu the occupation of the
enemy's capital signified the end of
hostilities, Lord Robert's terse message
is universally tnkun to mean the
practical finish ofthe wnr.
In London the Mm siou House and
War Ollice almost instantly become
Ihe centres of jubilant throngs. Plugs
-again appeared as if by niiigic and the
traffic had to be diverted through
other streets,
Lord Robert's Six Mile Spruit despatch was hardly printed by the extras before the Union Jack over the
War Officii was rapidly hauled up the
Hag BtalT and the brief message was
passed from mouth to month, "'Pre-
toria is taken."'
Everyone who bad a chance to rend
Lord Roberts' account of the resistance   encountered   yesterday   was at
that moment commenting on the probability of a fierce light before the city
slu. \i be occupied, nnd were wondering st the Boers capabilities to make
such a determined stand when Pretoria
was hemmed iu on all sides, The pres-
aure of General Fienpb north  of the
of Pretoria, Broad wood's Brigade
is between French's and Hamilton's
columns, and the Gordons are watching the right llanlt of the main force,
not far from the railway bridge lit
Irene Station, which was destroyed
by tho enemy. Our casualties, 1
hope, are very few."
London, June 5.���The War Oflice
has issued the following despatch
from Lord Roberts:
Six Miles Sprnlt, 8:30 p. in., June
4.���We started this morning at daybreak aud inarched about ten miles to
Six Mile Spruit, both banks of which
were occupied by the enemy. Henry's
and Ross's mounted infantry, with
the West Somerset, Dorset, Bedford
and Sussex Companies of Yeomanry,
quickly dislodged them from the
south bank and pursued them nearly a
mile, when they found themselves
under a heavy fire from guns which
the Boers had placed iu a well constructed commanding position. Our
heavy guns of the Naval and Royal
("Artillery which had purposely been
placed in the front part of the column,
were hurried to the assistance of the
mounted Infantry as fast as the mules
Could travel over the great hills surrounding Pretoria.
The guns were supported by
Stevenson's Brigade of Pole-Carew's
Divisiou, and, after a few rounds,
drove the enemy from the position.
The liners then attempted to turn our
left Hank but were foiled by the
mounted infantry and Yeomanry, supported by a brigade of Tucker's Division. As however they still kept
pressing our left rear. 1 sent word to
Ian Hamilton, who was advancing
three miles to our left, to incline towards us and fill up the gap betwecu
the two columns.
This finally checked the enemy who
were driven back towards Pretoria.
1 hoped we would have then been able
to follow them up. but the days now
are very short in this part of the
two hours of
world, and after nearly
marching and fighting we had to
bivouac on the ground gained during
the day.
Tlie Guard's Brigade is quite near
the southem-most fort, by which
Pretoria is defended, and less than
four miles from the town.

London, June 0.���England hns been
oelabrating the fall of Pretorin, very
muoh as they did the relief of Male-
king. Driinkeuess has been a trifle
le.'.ii conspicuous than when Baden-
Powell was the hero of tbo moment
But in London and in the oilier large
towns the scenes last evening were
praoticnlly a repetition of those which
marked the other victoiies, nud long
after midnight uproarious yelling,
tooting of horns, nnd discordaut olinnts
ascended from the oity streets usually
as silent as the grave.
All during the evening processions
marobed along the Strand,Picadilly and
the other leading thoroughfares. In
fact, so great was the crush, that the
easiest method of locomotion was to join
one of the processions, for whoso Btri-
dent choruses and waving flags, all traffic was stopped. Cabs aud coaches
were freely chartered iu honor of the
joyful occasion, and these wore soon
���o packed with invited nnd uninvited
gueets, that they assumed the aspect nl
living pyramids of Baohanaliuns. j
Babies in arms, white headed women,
girls ofjthe street, club men iu evening
dress and Whitecbapel cosier mongers
gaily interming.ed along the flaming
thoroughfares, bent on celebrating tbe
victory. In the faces of all were continually thrust .huge peacock feathers,
described, for no known reason, as
" Krnger's preservers."
Girls were indiscriminately kissed,
jostled aud tossed around amidst the
ecstatic jubilation of the midnight
crowd. A species of confetti, which
stock to tho clothes of the procession
proved a popular form of showing
one's joy until the stores of the pedlars
ran out.
The night grew older and rowdyism
of the worst form held sway. From
almost every barroom, came sounds of
inebriate attempts to sing "God Save
the Queen" and "Rule Britannia."
At the music halls and theatres last
syening, the mention of Lord Roberts
at Pretoria, brought every audience to
its feet in a second and it was almost
impossible for the performers to bold
the interest of those in front of them.
Every building possessing an illuminating device used it for all it was
worth, until the metropolis was a blaze
with light. The clubs on Pall Mall
were lit up with huge torches and the
staid old street of murky buildings was
scarcely recognized around Marlborough House.
The Prime of Wales came to town
yesterday afternoon, and went to the
opera in the evening. Ills drive to
and from the performance was marked
by a tremendous welcome.
The news was wired to the Queen,
at Balmoral immediately on its receipt and the Union Jack   was hoisted
on the Royal residences throughout the
country and illuminations occurred on
u large scale.
Klfigics of Kruger were burned and
innumerable telegrams of congratulations were sent to the Little Field
Marshal who had made England so
Lord Wolsley reoeived the news
while visiting Mr. Henry James at
Rye. He improved the occasion by attending tho local municipal meeting,
and joined in the cablegram to Lord
Roberts. The Rev. Dr. Talmage, who
was shut up in the Mansion Houbs by
the density of the orowd after
luncheon with the Lord Mayor, said to
a representative of the Associated
Press: "It is tho most inspiring-, the
most wonderful exhibition of enthusiasm I have ever seen. In some re-
i spools it reminds me of the peace
jubilee in Boston, at the close ofthe
American Oivil War. The Boer cause
is lost. They talk of guerilla warfare,
bnt judging from what I havo learned,
it scarcely seems likely that this will
amount to niiythlog."

Lady Roberts Hoists  Union
Jack���Incident at Bobs'
Battalion  of Imperial Yeomanry Captured Near
Johannesburg, Friday, Jnne 1.���The
entry of nn armed force yesterday into
this large, modern, populous town, afforded suoh a sttnnge oomrast to tbe
previous incidents of the war as to
make tho oconsion peculiarly memorable.
Soon after ton o'olodk Lord Roberts
and his stuff left the oamp followed by
the Guards and Ste-enson's brigades
and a few newspaper correspondents.
Preparations hnd been made on n large
scale to welcome the Field Marshall.
Tha space around the Court House was
thronged and the balconies were filled
with ladies. In front of the Court
House tho "Vierkleui'' Free Stnte
ling still floated.
At about 2 o'clock cheers in the
distance heralded the approach of
Lord Roberts, The 'Vm Inoreased and
bocniiW <Knfe:iing Lrftlre t'oniiiiainiei-
in-Chief, calm and collected, led the
column Into the square and reached the
front of the Court House,
The crowd became almost unmanageable, trying to break through
the cordon formed by the body-guard
in order to get closer views. Cheers
and cries of welcome and "Well done
Bobs" resounded on all sides.
After bis Introduction to the chief officials, Lord Roberts dismounted aud entered tbe Court House and made a
short speech nccopting the surrender of
tho place and requesting the officials to
retain Iheir offices for the present, Lord
Roberta afterwnrds left tho building, remounted ami the "Vierkleur" was
hauled down amidst hurrahs from tho
nondescript population.
There was visible emotion on the part
of many Of Ihe rugged Burghers, Tears
streamed down the faces of these big,
bearded men at the sight of the loss of
tbe ling they hnd fought for bo well,
After a brief interval tbe rattle of
drums and shrieking of fifes heralded
the approach of General Pole-Carew's
Guards, The troops were drawn up
around the ling stall' and the Union
Jack was hoisted by Lady Roberts,
the fifes played ' 'God Save the Queen,''
and as the music ceased a great roar
of cheers broke out followed by a
chorus of "God Save the Uueen." l*M1
During the singinR of the National
Anthem a tall Fiee State artillerist,
who wns listening to tho oeromony refused to lift his hat. Bystanders tried
to force him to do so, when a British
Gnardsnian interposed, saying; "Leave
him alono. Ho fought for his ling.
You are too cowardly to fight for nny
flag. " A inarch past subsequent to the
march through the town cloBod the

you see I am busy?"

be released from captivity."

Sec announcement on another
With the occupation of Pretoria
the war virtually closes. There are
Boer forces enough to keep up the
appearance of warfare for weeks
and months yet, and there is no reason to suppose they could not find
for themselves the means to subsist.
But to what end? Kruger may have
deceived himself, as he certainly
deceived his people, into the belief
that the Transvaal was invincible;
neither Kruger nor his people can
believe so any longer. And as they
rank above the savages, they must
realise the utter inutility of prolonging the struggle. As a concession to
theirpride,tliey mayput oft thehumil-
iation of surrendering until it can be
made with better grace, but it is in
the highest degree improbable they
will decide on maintaining a system
of guerilla warlare. There would
be nothing new in that to the
Boers, for with them it has been
guerilla warfare from the beginning.
They will see there is nothing to
gain, therefore, either in results or
novelty of defence, and will take
early occasion to swallow their pride
and make the best terms they  can.
It has taken longer than was
thought by the most experienced
heads, and even Lord Roberts himself found the march to Pretoria
a more tedious piece of work than
he expected. But he may take
consolation in the knowledge that

saw several years ago that the
political situation was drifting into
a condition of chaos, and saw moreover that the only effectual preventive was the introduction of party
linos. This view was urged on Mr.
Turner, who refused to accept it,
much to the disgust of Mr. Kletchcr
and many others like him, He is
not likely now, should lie be elected, to be one of those to invite Mr.
Turner to return to the old hodgepodge system. It was belter than
Cottonism or Martinism, but there
is slill another belter than either
ol Ihcin, and Mr. Fletcher will
do all that one man can to have it
introduced. But as to Turnerism,
in the objectionable sense meant by
Dr. Hall's editor, there is no more
danger of returning to it than there
is of returning to pocket boroughs
and open voting; il is as dead as
Cjuecn Anne.
The City of Nelson is paying Mr.
John Houston twelve hundred dollars a year to look after its affairs
and to see that they are conducted
with reasonable economy and efficiency. He was himself the first
and loudest in insisting that its
Mayor should be put on the footing
of a salaried official, claiming that
in this way his services would be
under more effective control in the
interests of the municipality. For
a period of nearly two months he
has been neglecting duties he is
thus paid to perform, his time having been almost wholly occupied in
endeavoring to get himself elected
to another position which also carries an indemnity. Mr, Houston
has a great weakness for public
salaries. He expects to get himself elected, although it is believed
that a majority of the people think
otherwise ; and if elected, he will
be absent at Victoria during a session that is to be called at once and
which from the nature of things
will last lor some time. During liis
absence his duties will be entirely
neglected, as a matter of course,
but he will continue to draw his
salary from the taxpayers of the
City. This is the penalty the
people are asked to voluntarily impose upon themselves, under the
assurance that Mr, Houston is the
only man in the community who
can serve the public in any capacity
whatever. Assuming his election,
it would be curious to know how he
proposes to reconcile his duties as
Mayor to his absence in Victoria,
attending to his duties as member
of the Legislature.
Dr. Hall's editor professes to fear
that Mr, Fletcher's election would
be a return to Turnerism. There
is no Turnerism either in existence
or threatened, therefore it is impossible that there can be a return to
it, A constantly growing number
of the community lament most
deeply that Turnerism has not been
more in evidence during the past
two years, if by Turnerism is meant
the control of affairs by a Government of which Mr. Turner was
Premiei. The Province would have
escaped much evil if it had been.
But however that may be, Mr.
Fletcher's election will not restore
Turnerism, That gentleman is
pin of the many Conservatives who
same freedom as oilier citizens.
In connection with this case, which
has given rise lo a great deal of
ignorant contention and to a display of feeling that bordered on
lawlessness, it may be worth observing that of the full Court two
Judges were for the appeal and two
against. While the judgment settles the dispute itself, il leaves the
merits of ii still in doubt.
The electors of British Columbia
will do a wise thing next Saturday
if they vote for a clean slate and a
fresh start. We have had sufficient
experience of government by faction, as the Province can testify lo
its cosl; let us try a new method, It
is impossible that il can be worse
than the old one, and there is at
least the chance that it will be better. In Nelson let us relegate Cottonism, Martinism and all the rest
ofthe abominations lo the lumber-
room, and by the election of Mr,
Fletcher do our full share towards
putting the politics of the Province
on a more solid footing.
If we take Mr. Houston at his
own estimate, he is a very great
man ; but in a public capacity he
has probably as much on his hands
as he can attend to in earning his
salary as Mayor of Nelson.

Mr. Cotton's paper says that in
ability Mr. Cotton is head and
shoulders above his rival candidates
in Vancouver, It says again that
he opposes the introduction of the
party system of government, for the
reason that a general mixing of Provincial affairs and Federal issues
would follow in consequence. This
can hardly be taken as an evidence
of Mr. Cottons's ability; if the view
is seriously held, il is rather evidence
of very gross stupidity. It is a wonder the large Provinces of Ontario
and Quebec manage to get along so
well, when the parlies in their Legislatures divide on the old lines. We
never hear that with them there is
the constant and deadly conflict between the Provincial and Federal issues that is predicted of British Columbia. We must be au inferior
breed of Canadians, surely, if we
cannot contrive to keep them sep-
arale. There is no necessary connection between the two, and no
sensible man would pretend that
there was if he did not expect by it
to frighten those who are still in
their political childhood.

is the engagement of Ilerr Sleiner'a

that the music is excellent and the

Kootenay Electoral District :
-KNTUiURN Aa the uomiiieo of tho
Conservative party I beg to offer myself
as a oandidate at tho coming general
eleotion to represent you iu tho Legislative Assonibly of this Province.
Tbo time has arrivod when all parties
are fully nlivo to tho fact that the future
welfare of our 1'ioviuoe demands a
iioiiiid, fair nud honest buaiueas administration aud that any great popular
Party must appeal to othor and
higher considerations than those of individual fear of loBa, or hope of gain.
I oonsider it the duty of every member
elcoted, to bo a Provinoiiiliat to the extont of tho beat interests of tho Proviuce
first, last and alwaya, and to support all
good legislation with that object iu view
In asking you for your support, I will
state that 1 am opposed to hasty legislation of any kind, but particularly with
respeot to our Mining LawB, as feuding
to jeopardize business interests and to divert oapital: for instanoe, twice tho Legislature has passed Alien Exclusion
Lbwb and they are now for the second
time seeking to repeal them after haviug
done considerable mischief .and damage.
With regard to the Eight-Hour Law, I
am opposed to any change in the law
as it now stands. Shorter hours for all
olasses of labor is no new idea, but in
my opinion the principle should be suoh
as to appeal to ull Sections of the Community as being not only a ueoessity nud
benefloial to all, but in keeping with tbe
general advance ment of onr civilization.
I would udvooate tho amendment and
strict enforcement of the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Aot, so as to more effectually proteot the lives ot workmen.
With regard to the Mineral Act: I
would endeavor to have certain sections
more clearly defined, for the purpose of
avoiding litigation ; and with regard to
oo-ownership, to introduce au inexpensive and Bpeedy mode of making a co-
owner bear his share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am iu favor of an amendment to our
School Laws so as to give Oitiea the control of the Sohools in their midst.
A fair Redistribution Aot should be
passed as soon as possible.
I would advooate the bringing into
foroe of the Torren's Act, provided it is
made optional ; as the cost in a great
mnny cases will be excessivo and out of
all proportion to any benefit to ho derived,
I would urge the speedy construction
of a Court Honse in Nelson, equnl to
the requirements of this district,
I would strongly advocate increased
Grants for Roads, Trails aud Ilridges
wherever suoh will upbuild and develope
our Province, more especially in the
Mining Distriots, and all ��noh expenditure to be placed in capable and experienced hands to bo dealt with iu a
systematic way.
Our undeveloped natural rcBonrcoa

With regard to cheap foreigu labor I

Gentlemen. ��� Iu response to num��r-
ously sffened requisitions askinp; me to
he u caudidate for the Provincial Lcr-
iilatnrt at the forthcoming election, I
have consented to enter the contest as
an Independent Liberal. _
I have the honor, therefore to solicit
your votes aud influence, und if elected 1 shall do my utmost to secure for
tho Province honest, economical and
progressive government.
A brief outliuo of some of the principles which I think should bo embodied iu the Legislative Aots is given
I huve the honor to be gentlemen.
Your obedient servant,
G. A. B. HALL.
1. The principle of eight hours constituting n legal day's work should be
recognized aud strictly enforced.
2. Steps should immediately be
taken through tho proper channels to
prevent tha immigration into this
country of Chinese aud Japanese laborers.
3. Two dollnrs and n half per dny
should ho the minimum wage of uu-
Bkilled lahor throughout the Proviuce
on.all government works.
4. A fair wage bill should be intro
duced requiriug tbe payment of standard wages ou nil works to which the
Province contributes subsidies or aid
in any form.
fi. The establishment of a labor
bureau under the direction of a Minister of the Crown, whose duty it Bhall
be among other things, to collect labor

between employers nnd workmen in
all cuses of actual or threatened
strikes with power to call nnd examine witnesses aud compel disclosure
of all material facts iu connection
with suoh disputes.
II. I believe that trims ronds should
be built and maintained by the government and encouragement given to
miners to extend these roads. Such
work should bo directed by competent
government engineers. Where trails
are required to single or small groups
of claims che cost of such trails, if
built by the claim owners on the approval and under direction of a government jnnsec.tor or engineer, shall
apply as  assessment  upon the claims.
7. Government ownership of nil
telegraph systems nnd railwuyB where
practicable by construction or purchase.

schools   for   metallflerous   miners   in

should be made by reason of merit and
not of political intluenoe.
14. All unoccupied lands in tho Province shonld be open to hona tide settlors nt fair prices which shnll be decided upon by a government land agent

If You Want
Good Government
And the
Expulsion   of   the
Vote for Dr. Hall-
A rutlle Attempt to Mislead  tho Public Made  at the
Curtis Meeting.
Another attempt was made by Mr. W.
A. Galliher at the Hon. Smith Curtis'
meeting to get an answer to tbe question
put to Dr. Hall at the Fletcher meeting by
pulting the question in different shape so
as in some way to connect Dr. Hall with
the Government. The attempt was futile,
only drawing out from Mr. Curtis an emphatic denial that there was any understanding with Dr. Hall or bis party to
support the Government, and that tlie
only answer he could give was the answer
given by Dr. Hall as reported in tbe press,
that, '"'in the event of 19 members being
elected to support the Government he
would not take it on himself to vote a want
of confidence motion   but   would give the
Government a chance to carry out its
policy." Nothing could be more straightforward. Dr. Hall is running as an Independent candidate and the position he has
taken will have the approval of all right-
thinking men, and he is gaining tbe votes
daily of men who do not want to see the
country thrown into another election should
the situation be such as Dr. Hall stated in
his reply at the Fletcher meeting. There
must be a strong apprehension by Mr.
Galliher's friends that it is just possible
that the Government will get many supporters or why are they so anxious about
Dr. Hall's vote? It must be a desperate
position to be running for a party that has
not enough men in the field to form a government and with whom neither Conservatives, Martinites, Turncrites-or any other
"ites" will coalesce. Dr. Hall's platform
is made of sound planks and the electors
know that he will do what he believes is
best for his constituents and the Province,
in any emergency tbat may arise.
Candidate Houston's paper is greatly
wrought up over tbe question as to whether
Candidate Hall was a "willing" or '���unwilling" candidate. There is one thing
certain he did not announce himself until
he was petitioned to do so by seventy-five
electors of tbe Riding. Il was bard on you
John. Your highest hopes were blasted by
bis appearance in the field, but il will only
prepare you for the avalanche tbat will
swamp you and Cottonism from tbe political arena on Saturday night.
Dr. Hall will hold a public meeting at
tbe Opera House on Friday night, tbe
night before election, to which will be
invited Candidates I [buston and Fletcher.
All of tbe members of Dr. Hall's committees are requested to attend the committee rooms during the evenings of this
and Good Government
The Result of a Letter Written by
Miner Employee.
An employee of thu meohnnical end
of The Miuer oflice recently wrote to
bis parents in the east a letter of which
the following is a portion : "It is now
8:811 in the evening and as I write you
this there ooiueB from the gulch, over
which the Minor office is situated, the
roaring of a boar, two of tbeBe auimnlB
having made their home beside a small
creek, whioh rune beueatb the office.
All night loug you can hear tbem
roaring, and straDge as it may seem
the people here pay no attention to
tbem. I am often afraid when I
veutuie out of the ollice after dark that
oue of them will giahme." In reply to this letter the fond mother of
the young mun wrote: "Your letter
in regard to the wild animals which
hover about the Miner office has completely upset me. It must be a terrible
place ond I do uot want you to stay
there any longer. I enclose you a draft
for StIO with which to pay your way
homo. Telegraph me as Boon as you
receive this when yon will come so
that 1 may be relieved." To this the
young man replied by wire: " Beats
belong to au adjoining hotel and are
tame. Don't worry. I will use the
money for other purposes, for I need
it." The young man expeots a letter
from homo in about three daya.

Murder of Another Missionary Charged
to Them.
London, June 0.���The Pekin correspondent of tbe Times telegraphing
Tuesday sayB: "Mo Norman, a missionary of the Society for the Propo-
gation of the Gospel, was oruelly murdered at Yung Oiling, on May 20th.
Tbe vicoroy of Pe Obi Li has officially
conveyed the fact to the British Minister.
The murder was undoubtedly due to
the complicity of the Chinese (iovernmeut in the disturbances caused by
the "Boxers.'' A Becret edict, issued two days ago forbade the soldiers
to fire upon the "Boxers." The
soldiers who were killed at Huang
Tsun offered no resistance, and were
simply guarding the railway."

Tsin. In addition to tbe marines, the
