London, July 17.���The Daily Mail

The total losses of the Allies in the

al the latest.
In ollicial circles there is a full
realization of the neecssity of having
tin- coast towns occupied and secure
before proceeding to Pekin. The
only course open to tlie Powers is to
remain in the Capital until fanaticism
shall wear itself out and the elements
of an orderly native Government begin
to emerge.
100,000 CHINESE.
According lo a Shanghai despatch
published here today. 100,000 Chinese
troops, armed with Mauser rifles and
modern artillery, are camped at three
points within forty miles of Shanghai
ready to besiege the town in the event,

telegram from Che Koo, received here

CONTINENTAL   OPINIONS.
London, July 17���European journals
are today Indulging in a good deal of
wild talk omitting the Powers with
having decided to lay Pekin iu ashes.

hang the Empress and Prince Taku.
hut the writers fail lo lake into account the difficulties which would attend such undertakings.
The Chancellor fully recognizes   the
magnitude of the  task  confronting
the great Powers. As a matter of
fact, the only thought for the movement of the Powers Is how bell to
reach Pekin. Once (here they can
exact whatever penally Appear! to be
the most striking and effective,
NOW FOR ADVANCE.

though that success lias been dearly
bought, appears to clear the ulrsonn
hat.
II was addressed to the Chinese
Minister ill London and by him transmitted   to Minister Wu under today's
date. In accordance with the request
contained in the cablegram, Minister
Wu asked Secretary Hay to agree
witb the other Powers lo preserve
Tien Tsin from destruction.
The Secretary's answer was not
made public, hut Minister Wu fears
that the destruction has already oc-
cuiTcn. lie regards the cablegram as
perfectly authentic, as the reported
massacre of the foreigners iu Pekin
occurred on July 7.

American home could it bring   deeper
regret than to himself.
Although Minister Wu would make
no publio utterance, the Associated
Press is able to^ give what is bclived
to he the aspect of the situation from
the Chinese standpoint. According
to thi. view, with the fate of the
foreign Legations and Ministers at
Pekin still in doubt, the allied forces
might well have turned their attention to cutting a way through to the
rescue of their ollieials and citizens at
the Capital. Then the normal conditions around Tien Tsin would have
continued and the status quo have
been maintained.
By an assault on the walled city,
tlie natives within the city might naturally be expected to defend themselves, believing their homes were
about to be attacked. They have been
penned np within the oity, knowing
nothing of what has occurred without
and from the Chinese standpoint it
probably will be found that it was in
a defence against an unexplained attack that the present slaughter occurred.
One of the suggestions of the day.
made in an ollicial quarter, is that a
commission be at once appointed to
proceed to China to investigate the
facts of the present situation, thus
giving a basis for intelligent action.
The situation appears (oo desperate.
however, to await the slow process of
a commission,

Montreal. July 17.���One hundred
and fifty Chinamen met last night to
consider thc condition of affairs in
the Chinese Empire. Lee Chu was
chairman and Joe Gong secretary. He-
ports of the occurrences in the northern provinces of China were read to
the assembly and it was unanimously
resolved that:
"The Chinese residents of Montreal
have beard witb regret of the insurrection now progressing in and about
l'ekin, Province of Manchuria, and
deplore particularly the killing of
missionaries and other foreigners and
desire to put on record their condemnation of the crimes committed.
"That the Chinese coining to this

miles from the scene of the trouble

treated with kindness by the citizens,
until recently the Corporation of
Montreal Imposed, in addition to the
ordinary business tax, a special tax of

are unable to pay.
"In spite of this unjust hill, by

LEFT NOW
House Occupied in Closing
the Last Bills of the
Session.
(SPECIALS TO THK lUINEtR.)
Ottawa. July 17.���In the House yesterday in reply to Mr. Oliver. Dr.
Borden said that, according to an arrangement made with the Imperial
Qovernment, Canadian disabled soldiers would get the same pensions,
etc., us the British troops. It had not
been considered yet whether Canada
would give anything extra.
Mr. Bourassa (Labclle) wanted to
know what action the Qovernment
was to take in regard to the war in
China. Sir Wilfred Laurier said that
all the legislation that was proposed
this session was already down. He
did not think that it would be necessary to provide at present for a contingent for China, but if an occasion
should arise the Government would
consider it and summon Parliament to
deal with it.
In reply to Mr. Flint. Sir Wilfred
said that the Government would be
glad to receive information with the
object of perfecting the Scott Act.
Mr. Foster wanted to know something about the general elections. Sir
Wilfred Laurier said: "1 would advise mv honorable friend to watch the
movements of the Ministers of the
Crown and to be guided by them.''
On Ihe vote of (30,000 for judicial
enquiry into alleged election Irregularities, Dr. Sproule Insinuated that
it was improper for the Qovernment
to have promoted Judge Falconbrldge
at a time when he was acting on
a Royal commission. Mr. Ilaggart
thought it would be an extraordinary
thing" if Judge Falconbrldge was to
be barred from appointment and preferment which lie deserved merely
because   he   was   acting  on   a  Royal
commission,
Solicitor (leneral l'itzparrick remarked: "That is putting the matter
right, " and Sir Wilfrid Laurier said
that was exactly how the matter
stood.
In reference to the 138,000 for the
Clasgow exhibition. Mr. Fisher said
that 8,000 feet would be given as dilu

RAILROADS CLASH.
Mayor of St. John Endeavors to Bring Tooether
the I. C. R. and C. P. R.
Montreal. July 17. ��� President
Sliaugbnessy of the C.P.B. says he received a telegram from Mayor Daniel
of St. John. N. It., asking the privilege of nn interview because of the
difficulty now existing between the
I. C. U. and C. P. It., which may compel the C. P. K. to abandon its winter
business at St. John.
Mr. Sbaughiiessy will meet the
Mayor at St. Andrews, N. It., and will
there discuss the matter with hliu.
Thc trouble is the same as that of last
winter aud arises from the refusal of
the 1. C. R. to allow the C. V. U. to
secure western freight for shipment,
via St. John, at points in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia on tho line of
the I. ('. R. In other words the I. C.R.
declines to deliver freight originating
along its line for points ou the C.P.B.
west of Montreal to that line in St.

the long haul to Montreal.
it is understood that the 0. P. R.
intimated to the Admiralty authorities in   London that it   is prepared to
transport        troops    daily    from
Quebec to Vancouver if an emergency
should arise requiring their presence
in China. The accommodation provided the men will be of the best
description and they will lie hurried
across the Continent In Imperial
limited time. The Imperial authorities intend to make Es<|uimalt the
temporary   base   of  supplies  for any
ti |is which may lie taken across and
it is likely therefore that Victoria
will lie the point of embarkation for
the troops.

To-morrow tl

ed to pronounci
that
lectors who arc
islon will !����� aak-
i certain by-laws
re being submitted for the purpose 'if raising money. The Miner Is
loth t.i advise <m the matter, feeling
thut the ratepayers are as qualified to
form a correct opinion as itself. Kx-
pt'iiilitures on public works are required and must be made. We all recognise this, and are prepared fur it.
The town is prosperous: the people
are ambitious; and the difficult task
of furnish ins,' it with all the necessaries nf a resident*! centre are fully
realised. They will cost a lot uf
money before we are through with
them, ami there is all the greater
reason, therefore, why we should
make the most of our means and spend
with care and judgment. Something
has been done this year, almost wholly
under the direction of the Mayor, who
has taken the management of things
into his own hands. Much of it lias
been conducted hind end first, and
not a little has been badly botched.
at a cost which tlie City can ill afford.
It has thus become a question with
the ratepayers whether it would be
safe to entrust the Mayor with further
expenditures. There is a suspicion
that his judgment is either bad or hi~
purpose is not wholly unselfish or disinterested.
A year ago the ( ity was voting on
other money by-laws. They were sub-
niitted on the responsibility of a Council whose good faith was not Buapcct-
ed and whose honesty no one doubled.
Mr. Houston on that occasion nse.1 all
bis    inlluelice   to    defeat    tile by-laws.
ltjs true that he   relented in   respect
to  one or   two   of   them   towards the
end. but the others lie tried to defeat
and would not have been sorry   if  all
of them had  been voted down.    The
money was more urgently needed then
than it is now-, mnl to have refused it
would have lieen a greater repudiation
of the public responsibilities   than   it
would   lie     on   this     occasion.        As
Mr. Houston was not then   influenced
by these considerations, it scarcely becomes him now to plead  public duty.
There is no public   duty   in the   sense
lie   would   have   it    understood.    Tlie
only question to consider  is  whether
the   Mayor   has so    managed   affairs
that he   can    be   entrusted   witli   the
handling     of     the    many    thousands
covered by   tlie by-laws that are to be
voted upon tomorrow,   In i ilng  to
a decision it may help to know that
not a single public interest would be
permanently or seriously prejudiced
if all of them were defeated.
tine at least is rotten in itself and
Ought to be defeated in any ease. The
electric    light    by-law    should    be
slaughtered beyond recognition. It
may lie that the franchise is worth
preserving, and that ii will pay the
City to develop it until we have au
electric system worthy of the name.
Hut this must be done under some
other auspices than Mr. Houston's.
The town has had enough and to
spare of hi in in this connection.

the children of the town know better.
There was very little building going
on at tlie time, and it was not known
that any was contemplated. Hut in
any ease there were blocks at either
end on which an experiment nt macadamising might have been made, if
an experiment was thought to be
necessary. Krom the Kirkpatriek and
Wilson block cast and west to the
street's extremities, the way was
clear for any operations the Mayor in
liis goodness might be pleased to order. There was nothing to hinder,
and there has been nothing to hinder
from the day the lirst stroke of work
was made on Josephine street. The
reckless Mayor is now desperate, and
is making excuses that every person
in town having eyes to see knows are
without the slightest  foundation.

Not a single ratepayer made objection to tbe purchase of a road-
making plant, at a cost of (5,-80,
says Mr. Houston's paper. Very
likely not. The purchase was made
early in the season, and the ratepayers had got it into their heads
that the plant was intended for
active use on streets that required
making or mending. They did not
know that it was purchased in order
that the Mayor might engage in his
Josephine experiment, and that as
soon as this little extravagance was
completed the machine would be
blanketed and left in idleuess to
withstand the sun and the rain.
Costly as tbe Josephine macadaiu
has lieen, so far as we can yet see it
is chargeable also with the price of
tlie plant.
Last year Mr. Houston employed al
the Influence of himself and his news
paper to defeat the Tramway   and tin
lias and   Coke   by-laws.    The   | pi,
knew better, and carried tlielll. and
today, all through liritisli Columbia
nnd far beyond her boundaries. Nelson is being advertised by her tramway and gas works. There were two
money by-laws submitted at the same
time, one for sewers and the other for
the light plant. At firsl Mr. Houston
savagely attacked both, not because
he thought the expenditure unnecessary, but because he was not Mayor
to handle It,   The favor  ivllh  which
they were received by the public was
so great, howcvcr.tbat he was shamed
Into silence. Thos, by-laws were carried for the reason that they were presented by a business Council,In a business way, and for straight business!'"ft*���
purposes.      This   year   al!    municipal I ^=S
authority is usurped by thv Mayor
who Is more than suspected of crookedness, lie e.ime�� to __ ��ith by-laws
silking for money whioh he is t,, con-
troi in any way he sees til.    It    I, tl���.

III bis paper of this morning the
Mayor tries his hand at figures a
second time. But he is careful to
mix up tbe waterworks and electric
light plant, so it is impossible to distinguish between them. That is the
most simple anil effectual way to
cover up the fact that the electric
light plant, after allowing for wear
and tear, is an absolute loss to the
City, besides furnishing a most unsatisfactory service. The ratepayers
will do well to defeat the electric
light by-law. and then if thought
necessary tlie enterprise can be overhauled later ou and established on a
more businesslike basis. At present
it  is a cheat.

If   not    a   dishonest   piece of work,
intended to enhance   the   value of the
Mayor's   property,   the   so-called   ex
periincnt   on   Josephine    Street   is   a
costly   monument   to Mr.    Houston's
incapacity  to manage thu utfairs of
tlie   town.    We   could   not have   been
more extravagant if we were   coinpet
ing   against   tlie   world   for the most
perfect specimen of a bit of road-uiak
ing.     It is more like a piece of street
intended for exhibition than for active
service   in   a    city   lhat   has   a   task
ahead of it to get   its streets in   order
that is almost appalling.
There is not a single person In the
ciiy. in tlie Council or out of it, who
can make head or tail of the civic finance! as they stand at present, or who
has a clear understanding of the civic
appropriations, They are all In a
muddle, thanks to thc interference
aud e..nt roi of thc Mayor, who either
cannot avoid muddling or prefers it
for its greater opportunities.
There are a great many ratepayers
who are opposing the by-laws to be
voted upon tomorrow. Tbey may be
interested ill knowing that, according
to   Mr.    Mayor   Houston,    they   "are
inosabacks  by nature ami enviously
mean by leinperaiueiit."

A   COMPLETE    TRIUMPH.
Mile Dolores Hold llnr Audience   Spollbound
Last   N In lit.
Tumultuous    handolapplng is  ono
way of applauding the performance
of any artist that has appealed to
our sensibilities, a performance, that
has aroused a desire to join iu Hie
noisy demonstration that, from time
immemorial, bus constituted human
applause to the favorites of Hie arena
and the stage. That applause, enthusiastic perhaps for the moment,
sufllces where only the supcritolal
emotions are aroused, and where Ihe
Interest is a Meeting one, caught for
a brief space of time.
Once Iu a great while, however,
there comes before ns an artist with
the divine gift of reaching beicitli
the Burfaee and touching that foun-
talnhead of purest emotion, the human heart. There conies over us. when
such a performer is before us, a great
tllenee, a rapt stillness, lest we miss
the faintest note, that is the greatest
tribute an audience can lay at. the feet
of a singer.
Such was the compliment paid Mile.
Trchclli-Dolores by her audience last
night. Her every appearance on the
stage was thc signal for a ripple of
applause, cordial indeed, but bushed
in a moment into a rapt attention to
the singer's peerless voice. An absolute stillness, never for a moment broken by the faintest whisper, that spoke
a volume of praise far greater than
the outburst of applause that greeted
the final note of each number.
Mile. Dolores was In such line voice
and so thoroughly In sympathy with
her audience that it is a bard task to
say in which number she excelled.
The Aria."A Nous Lcs Amours. " from
Massenet's "Million Lcscaut," was
rendered with a superb vocalization.
Her control over her voice is marvelous, as is her sustained purity of
tone. Her runs were like the rippiii g
of a brook and withal faultlessly true.
Hut it is in the pianissimo that Mile,
is at her best. Soft as the whisper of
a little child was each note, but audible to every bearer ami replete with
musical charm, In the Aria and Hal-
aklreff's "L'Alouette" was offered a
perfect treatment of the classical.
Among her later numbers were two
Knglish ballads, "I've Heen Roaming" and "Love Has Eyes. " Seated
at the piano. Mile., accompanying
herself, sang them with an ineffable
irraee and expression. Not a word
was lost upon her hearers, as her accentuation is perfect. When she bad
finished she was enthusiast ically recalled anil gave as an encore "Home
Sweet Home.'' Mile, sings always
with infinite expression, but the lender pathos in her voice as she sang
tlie oldest and sweetest of ballads is
beyond description. A glance al. the
audience would have shown that many
of tbem Were, by the magic of that
voice, transported thousands of miles
to homes so far away, and when the
last sweet note died out there was.
before the applause that followed, a
pause that spoke volumes iu itself. It
was the time it took to bring one's
self to the conviction that it was only
a singer's art that had brought the
far-away scene so near.
Hy special request Mile. Dolores
concluded the programme witli thc
famous "Laughing Song" that has
always charmed but never palled.
When Mile, laughed her audience
laughed with her, when she sang the
"story" they listened with amusement if not understanding and the
last note of the laughing finale was
the signal for handolapplng mid
cheering that was a lining close to an
evening of unalloyed   pleasure.
M. Eugene Berns deserves only tbe
highest praise for his work. As an
accompanist he is ideal, ever effacing
the accompaniment to the singer and
yet missing not even tbe faintest note.
Mile, is tube congratulated in having
so able au assistant.
As a pianist he ranks high indeed,
his technique, lingering ami expression being faultless. lie possesses
a touch M light as thistledown thai
is exquisite. Especially was this
noticeable in the 'Romance Sautuzza"
from Maseagni's "Cavullerin Rus-
tieana" where thc pianissimo was
stiberb. In thc "Harmonious Black-
Smith," by Handel, he treated bis
hearers to a wealth of harmony that
was as enjoyable as it is exceptional.
He is an artist and a rare one.

Very little new business came before
the City Council ut the regular meeting last evening. There wen- no re-
porta from tlie special committees, and
the disposing of h fow petitions waa
the only business to occupy the atten*
tion.s of the members.
The Board of Public Works, iislm!
for further time to prepare h report on
the extension of the water mains
through Fairview.
The members of the Hume Hotel
Company, A. L&pointe, V. Simpson
and other residents of Vernon Slreet.
protested against Mr. Kilhy leasing
Ii'ih property on Vernon street to a Chinese laundrymftn. The petition was
left for consideration until next meeting.
The members of the local   Board of
Trade ashed the Council    to join with
���them in extending  an   Invitation   to
l.ord Minto to visit Nelson during his
Western trip. No uctlon was taken
after discussing the matter fnnn a
financial standpoint.
The Dominion Day Celebration Committee, discovering a deficit of siht.:...
ashed the Council for assistance. The
money was granted, along with the
original grant of Ifioo and $loo for the
