REVENGE FIRST
MOURNING AFTER
Nations Cry Out for Revenge
for Atrocities at
Pekin.
Allied Forces Suffer Another
Crushing Defeat at
Tien Tsin.
IB* ASSOCIATED PROSS.)
London, July In.���"Bevenge today,
mourning tomorrow," is practldally
tlie universal cry ot Europe. It is
aroused l>y the Incredible barbarities
t hat lire reported to have marked the
last .scenes of the destruction nf the
Legations at Pekin.
Nothing is clearer than that Uio
anti-foreign conflagration in China is
rapidly permeating hitherto quiescent
provinces.ami it recognised lhat every
day whieli leaves Pekin in tlie power
of the nioh. Increases the perils ami
.litiiculticM of the situation.
Nothing comes from the diplomatists of Europe to show that the Powers have overcome the jealousy, resulting ill general impolcncy. to which
Is commonly ascribed the sacrifice of
ihe handful of women ami children
nud men. comprising the International
colony in l'ekin. Nothing has been
received today that adds to the inf,,r-
uiation previously obtained regarding
the massacre.
The only ray of light extricable
from the Pekin messages appears to he
the statementthai Citing ami liis followers did their utmost in the defease of the Legations. The rebels,
however, are evidently greatly
in the majority and the few loyalists
are helpless before the hordes who
have joined and are daily joining the
iiluodstaiucd desperadoes who have
usurped authority at Pekin,
A similar fate to thai of the Cnpital
appears to threaten other towns like
Tien Tsin, Che Po and even Shanghai.
The defeat of the allied forces at Tien
Tsin seems to place that town in
desperate straits, aud if a retreat to
Taku should be necessary, observers
consider that it would he likely to decide the policy of the wavering viceroys.
The departure of Admiral Seymour
from Tien Tsin and the movement of
the warships towards Bhang Kuan on
the llulf of Lie Tung are taken to indicate that that place may be adopted for an advance on Pekin,, which is
distant 17 miles from Sluing Kuan.
The members of the Chinese   Legation
this morning  still  assert that they
have uo   Information   concerning   the
fate of the foreigners in Pekin.
p.'irtincnt this morning received olli-
clal confirmation from Admiral Remey
uf the reverse of the allied forces at
Tien Tsin .in the morning of the I.Ith.
The despatch is dated Che Foo, July
li'.th and Bays!
"Reported that allied forces attacked the native city the morning of
the Kith. Losses of the allied forces
wore largo. Russians lost one hundred including an artillery colonel.
Americans over SO, liritisli over III,
Japanese .",s. Colonel French of the
'.'."ith Infantry and Colonel Liscolu of
the .Ninth Infantry were lulled,
also Captain Davis of the Marine
Corps uml Captain Lemly and Lieutenants Butlor and Leonard wounded.
At 7 in thc evening the allied attack
on thc native city was repulsed with
great loss.    The   returns   yet   inconi
plcte.    (Signed) REMEY."
STORMING THE CITV.
Tien Tsin, July 13. via Chcfoo. July
lfi, and Shanghai. July 10.��� At .'
o'clock this afternoon 7,000 of the allied troops were attempting to storm
the walls of the city. The attack began at daylight. Its success is doubtful. The Chinese on tlie walls are estimated conservatively at 80,000. They
are pouring a terrific hall of artillery
and rllle and miuliinc-gun lire npon
the attackers.
American, Japanese. British and
French troops are attacking from the
west and the Russians from the east.
The Americans suffered terribly. As
the Associated Press representative
left the field the Chief Surgeon of tbe
Ninth Infantry said it was a conservative estimate that SB per cent, of the
Americans had been lilt. Colonel Emerson II. Liscoin is reported to have
heen mortally wounded while walking
in front of IiIh troops.
Officers declared that it was hotter
than Santiago. When the correspondent left the Americans were lying in
the plain between the wall and the
river under an enfilading and direct
lire. It was equally difficult for then,
to advance or retire. The correspondent counted three hundred wounded
men of sll nationalties.
KILLED   THEIR   WOUNDED.
Now York. July Hi.���The desperate
straits in which the allied forces have
been at Tien Tsin arc described iu a
cable to the Journal and Advertiser,
dated from the beleagured city July 8,
via Shanghai July IS, The message
describes tho garrison as- lighting
hordes of Chinese day and night, being unable to drive them oil', and of
suffering repeated defeats. The despatch says:
"When Admiral Seymour in bis retreat found himself so hard pressed
that he was unable longer to carry his
wounded with him he asked them:
���Which do vou prefer, to he left to the
mercies of the Chinese or to he shot
by your own comrades?1' As Admirnl Seymour put the question the
tears were running down his cheeks.
"   We prefer death to torture. Shoot
us now, thai   we   may die like,   men,'
was the piteous response of the   helpless soldiers.     A firing squad was told
off.    The   little   allied   force   stopped
and beat off with gun-fire the Chinese
horde that  surrounded it.   A few merciful volleys from rifles in the   hands
of friends, and the fanatical   Chinese
j horde was cheated  of   victims   for its
'tortures, and the sufferings and   fears
of the unfortunates were  brought to
j an end in an honorable  death  under
I their own dog.
"The fury of the Europeans against
the Chinese on account of thc bitter's
mutilation of the dead  and  the  tor-
J tnre of the living knows no bounds.
"All the wounded prisoners who fell
into tin' hands of the Chinese were
fright fully tortured, The bodies of
two marines who were captured by
the Chinese, were recovered. The
eyes had deen picked, out and the
cheeks, anus and legs cut oil'.
A LAST RESORT.
"According to a cable to the World
from London, England, Robert Ycr-
hurgh. M. I'., is quoted as saying
that he knew that Sir Claude McDonald, the liritish Minister lit l'ekin.
long had ill view tlie possibility of
sonic such a tragedy as seems to have
occurred. "Sir Claude", said Mr.
Yerblirgh, "pledged his word to his
wife to shoot her in order to prevent
her from falling into the hands of the
natives and provided her with a quick
poison to he used in case of his inability to fultil liis pledge."
stationed at Port Sheridan has received orders to go to China. Within
two weeks the other two battalions of
the regiment are expected from Cuba.
A week's rest will be allowed them,
and then the entire regiment will
start for China.
FIGHTING ON   THE   NINTH.
London, July 10, -The War Office
today issues a despatch from (leneral
Howard, dated Tien Tsin, July 111.
which adds little to previous information. The Chinese, according to
this despatch attacked, the station the
morning of July 11th, aud were repulsed, after four hours hard lighting in which Mid of the enemy were
killed.
On the Oth General Doward, commanding a force of Inn Americans, OB
liritish and Kill Russians, and (leneral
r'lishiima. commanding l.ooO Japanese, attacked the Chinese nnd took up
their position southwest of the city,
killing 8B0 and capturing   four   guns.
The American and Japanese troops
subsequently rushed and took the
western arsenal. (leneral Doward
adds that, the day's honors rested witli
thc Americans and Japanese. There
were no casualties among the Americans or tin1 Russians,
Toronto, July 10.���Thc Methodist
Mission Hoard has received the following from Kev. A. II. Leonard,
secretary of the Methodist Episcopal
Hoard of New York: "No record of
disturbance at Tsohuan. As a precaution have authorised nil Imperilled
missionaries called in." Tschuau is
tlie province in which all the Canadian
Methodist missionaries  are centered,
TO UPHOLD THE LAW.
Portland. Ore.. July Hi.���The Chinese population of Portland exceeds
",.11(111. All the leading Chinese merchants have expressed their loyalty to
the I'nited Stales Government and
have thus dlsslpateSany great feeling
of hostility, which might otherwise
have devcloiied toward the Chinese.
Los Angeles. Cal.. July HI.���At a
meeting of 150 of the Chinese merchants and residents of this city last
night, resolutions were passed pledging' themselves to do all in tbeir
power to uphold ami assist in upholding the laws of the I'nited States so
long as they arc residents of this
country.
TREBELLI TONIGHT.
CONTRADICTORY  NEWS.
Washington, July lo. ���Consul-
General (loodnow cabled to the State
Department from Shanghai, under today's dale, that there was nothing
more to report since his cablegram of
the 13th Inst, That despatch reported
the attack on the Legations at l'ekin
as   about   to' begin.     Mr.   (loodnow's
statement is a direct contradiction of
of the Shanghai story that nil the
foreign consuls were informed Saturday by Shanghai that the Legations
had fallen and tlie Ministers had been
killed.
Washington. July Hi.���An unofficial
report has come to the attention of
the Chinese ollieials here to the effect
that 3,000 Chinese ollicials-nl Pekin
petitioned .Prince Tuan to protect the
foreigners, whereupon I'rlhce Tuan
ordered all those who united in the
petition   to be killed.
A Crowded House Will   Greet tho  Diva To-
Night.
Mile. Trebelli. when she comes forward for her first number tonight, will
he greeted by a crowded house of Nelson's representative citizens and she
may count upon an enthusiastic reception.
In praise of Mile, it is scarcely necessary to speak. So many able critics
have already lavished such enthusiastic praises upon her, both as to her
voice and presence (for she sings as
graciously as divinely), that further
compliment would he "carrying perfume to the rose." The audience that
will be present tonight will he one of
music lovers who need no spur to urge
them to appreciate the rare "feast of
music" that will he presented to them,
The peerless voice will play upon every
emotion, as the master hand upon the
Inanimate instrument, and will lead
them upward to a crescendo of enthusiasm that only the gifted few
have the power to arouse.
Hut beside the voice of Mile there
is yet another treat awaiting the
audience in the piano playing of  M,
Eugene Herns. M. Herns lias associated himself with nearly all our great
artists. Why'.' Hecausc of his ll:tistic
temperament, liis depth of tone color
is exquisite, his distinctness of the
pianissimo is as charming and us infatuating as is Mademoiselle's. He
loses his personality and never makes
his playing superlative, intelligence
predominates, and the keyboard is
there to respond to his sentimentality,
lly special request Mile Trebelli
will to night sing her famous "Laughing Song" without which her concert
would hardly he complete since it is
one of her masterpieces.

a mistake in -huppo-lng that he is
regarded as such a very important
personage in the life nf the eom-
inuuity that it is found Impossible to
eeeape   discussing   liim   in   nny  ease.
Even   in  the  little world of Nelson
there are people who dally If" about
their business entirely oblivious of
that gentleman's existence; and outside Of Nelson, extending fnnn. sny,
Bdgantown to Bt. Petersburg, Preto-
ri��, l'ekin, an.I other places of more
or leHH note, there are probably several millions who have not even
heard of him. Because In our own
municipality his connection with clvie
affairs rentiers reference to him uti-
ailvoldable uinler Certain circuin-
HtanccB, he must not delude himself
with the supposition that tlie whole
world is regarding him witli mingled
awe and admiration. And if impatient nf being discussed hy the few
at home who are concerned hy hlB
actionH,   he has only to avni.l  putting
himself in the position of Inviting it.
In taking up the burden of civic
government a mistake was made at
the outset: we began on a wrong principle. Mr. Houston insisted that the
Mayor was the entire Council, and
that the Aldermen elected with him
were only ornaments. This claim to
undivided authority and importance
was coneeileil, and with the exception
of the one term during which the City
managed to ilo without his Services
our affairs have beeu conducted on
that principle. That is tlie mistake
that was made and is Wing perpetuated. If Mr. Houston were an able
man and an honest one it would nol
matter, hut unfortunately he is neither.
The result has heen that he has gut
the corporation badly tangled at
times, and put it to a good ileal of un
necCHsary expense. And he has tils,
taken advantage of his position to Impose upon it. There are citizens in
our midst who are realising this with
feelings of alarm and indignation.
and now that they arc asked to vote
more money they naturally make a review of the situation and oonsidl
very seriously whether it would I
wise to comply. The present Mayor
has not Inspired confidence either in
his motives or methods, and there ii
distrust in consequence.
When put into a   corner the gentle
man has a habit   nf   inventing   somi
striking story with which to create   n
diversion.    Be feels himself pushed to
the   wall in the matter of the   electric
light plant, and   he   res|Min.ls    with a
eock-anil-bnll    story   about   thc   West
Kootenay      Power   Company,     whose
managers are taking our business men
by   the throat in the hope of choking
them into a surrender.    Another part
of the story Is that the Company Is at
the back of   Tlie    Miner   iu   opposing

The new Legislature will meet for

the Impression that nothing will be

A dispatch says that   the   details of
the massacre of the Europeans in Pekin will probably   never   he   known.
The Dally Express of London will resent this. It can furnish thc details,
down to tbe minutest incident, What
it does not know it can invent. One
cannot but refleot with regret that tlie
introduction of yellow journal ism into tlie liritisli Capital has heen tolerated, lint from the frequency with
which the Associated Press quotes
The Daily Express We have to conclude,
that it has not only heen introduced
hut lii.H found a congenial field and
is flourishing healthily.
The Mayor will require to revise his
electric light figures, if he hopes for
the success of his by-law, These figures have heen badly damaged ; and as
they stand now, after the exposure
made of them,    they  inspire  distrust
rather thtin confidence.

"Four bottles of Electric Hitlers has
cured Mrs. Brewer of Bcrofula, which
had caused her great suliering for
years. Terrible sores woule break out
'mi her head   and race,  and    tbe    best
doctors could give no help: but her
cure is complete and her health excellent." This shows what thousands
have proved���that electric bitters is
tbe best blood purifier known. It's
the supreme remedy for eczema, tetter, salt rheum, 'ulcers, boils and
running sores, it stimulates liver
kidneys mid bowels, expels, poison,
helps digestion, builds up strength,

'BLUB RIBBON TEA 18 DELIOIOUS."
Mile. Trebelli at Opera lluuse tonight.
A   PROTEST.
The Following letter is In regard to
a subject over which much discussion
lias arisen lately:
Nelson, .luly IS, l'.iun.
Editor Miner sir: Do you not think
that the city made a mistake in having the bawdy houses reuigvedto their
present locality? There is no obscurity   whatever   aboul    this   situation.
In   the   lirst    in-.Hi    Hull   Street in
this particular vicinity Is n   far more
public thoroughfare than that pnrl  of
East    Haker   street    ii|    which    lln
houses were originally located.
Secondly, tlie reercntlon grounds
and the bawdy houses are now divided
by only n 100-fool street ; mid In the
third place tho merchants in that
particular part of the town never I
figured upon having a colony  of dis-
reptnahle  | pie   Installed   Iu  their
vory midst.
A mistake has certainly been made,
and. aside from the question of public
decency, it is hardly right to bunco
these unfortunate people Into buying
lots mid erecting houses In ll pari of
the city iu which they eaniiiit possibly
expect to remain for any length ill
time.
Mayor Houston can hardlj be held
responsible for this as he merely acquiesced in the public clamor for the
removal of these houses from East
Haker Street.     Yours, etc .
DECENCY.
Tired
eyes
cause
sickness
Because the eyes tire easily,
some folks say they are not well.
In most such cases there is eyestrain.
Neglected eyestrain is sure to
produce sickness.
Be wise.
Have your eyes examined.
Know their exact condition from
an expert.
Consultation free.
