THE EMPRESS
RESUMES POWER
Has Taken thc Reins of Gov
ernment and Will Protect  Foreigners.
HIV ASSOCIATED I'lll'.ss.)
London, .1 uly 10, - Chinese official
sources furnish another Hurprlso tliis
morning In announcing that tlie Dowager Knipress. who hail lieen poisoned
uml said to   have   In me   hopelessly
mad, has resumed the reins Of power.
The date given is Jnne 30, the same
on which the wholesale massacre of
foreigners is alleged to have occurred.
The telegram of Shang, the Administrator of Telegraphs and Railroads, i<>
the Chinese Minister ut Washington,
Wu Ting Pang, saying the Imperial
Government was protecting tho Legations, appears to tit In with the despatch from Shanghai of this morning,
particularly with reference t" tlie
alleged directions given by tin1 Dowager Empress relative to the protection
of foreign affairs. At the same time
people continually ask if tin' Legations lire protected, why hit the Ministers not permitted to communicate
with the outer world. Slump's expressed fear, thnt the food anil ammunition of the Legations have been
exhausted are counteracted by I lu'
news thut Prince Chlng, the commander of the Mani'hu Held force, is
revlctuoltlng them. Besides this it is
now known that in the lust resort
tlieri. were available for food several
hundred ponies usually kepi within
the walls of the British Legation.
lu the meantime, according to the
Legation of Japan here, the lapanese
hy no means share the general opinion that the advance on Pekin must
he indefinitely delayed. The officials
assert thut the Japanese hnve no intention of halting at Taku or Tien
Tsin, hut propose to advanccon l'ekin
during the present week. Their military authorities express the opinion
that 80,000 of their troops, in addition to the International forces now
available, will suffice lo force an entrance into the Chinese Capital.
CHINESE LEGATION.
It has been learned by the Associated Press thut the Chinese Legation
here, though apparently unable to
communicate directly with l'ekin. is
getting news from there Indirectly.
The ollieials ofthe Legation declare
the present trouble is entirely the
work of Prince Tuan anil thai Ihe
Government, the Dowager Knipress
und thi- Chinese generally are against
the Hoxers.
The officials also say they have
reason to hope that lho situation ;it
Pekin Ih Improving ami lhat Prince
Cliing will succeed in protecting (lie
foreigners. They scout I he stories of
the massacre of the people in the Legations and the poisoning of the Emperor and Dowager Empress and
express the opinion thai. Prince Chlng
and the Loyal Viceroys could best ho
assisted by the prompt despatch of
International reinforcements.
Europe that the Legations In l'ekin
arc slill under protect ion of one
section of I lie Chinese army. But.
that only makes it more remarkable
flint they should nol employ the only
convincing argument hy allowing
dii-ect'coiu in un ient ion between the Ministers and Ihe outer world. We do not
wisli to insist loo strongly upon   this
aspect,     bul    those    circumstantial
Illinois lack confirmation."
si. Petersburg, July 10,���Authorl-
live Information just obtained don-
firms the report lhat. Russia has
consented to and is even desirous
that Japan should actively co-operate
in the pacification of China. Russia
places no limit on the number of
Japanese troops to be employed and
only stipulates this agreement is not
lo constitute a mandate whereby
Japan will obtain a privileged position. Japan, It is added, must cooperate wilh other Powers.
Horlln, July 10,���Emperor William
lias despatched the German warship
Bussard from Kiel for China this
morning, while the German Cruisers
(Icier and See Ailler have been ordered
lo proceed to China as rapidly as
possible, from their American and
Australia stations respectively.
Washington, .Inly III. ���Ueneral McArthur cables the War Department
thai Ihe Fourteenth Infantry and the
Fifth Artillery will leave Manila on
Friday for Taku.
London, .Inly 10.���The Daily Mail's
correspondent at Che Foo announces
under dale of July 7th that the Ninth
United Slaics Infantry has arrived at
Taku.
HARMONY OF POWERS.
EMPRESS RESUMES SWAY.
Shanghai. July 10.���News from official sources was received at HI o'clock
last night to the effect that Ihe Empress had, on June .'III. resumed Ihe
reins of Government, anil had appointed Yung Lu as Prime Minister.
It Is said that she sent a despatch to
Nankin by courier at the rate of um
mill's per day thanking the Viceroys
��f the Yang Tse Kiang Provinces for
their loyalty, and recommending that
they protect the foreigners al any
cost.
TIEN TSIN.
Tien Tsin, July 3.���It is reported
from Chinese sources thai the foreigners at Pekin have taken possession of one of Princes' palaces opposite and commanding the British Legation, and that the native Christians
have been installed there.
London, July lo.���The Times this
morning says: "Some Chinese ollieials
are desirous  to  have  it  believed in
Now Standing  the First Serious Test
ln Japanese Division Going
to China.
Berlin, July lo.���The Foreign Office
claims to have no later authentic
news from China than that published
and remains in doubt as to the fate
of the whites there. Regarding the
attitude ofthe Powers, a Foreign
Office official said they continued
harmonious and that the harmony
just now is sending the lirst* serious
test, namely the sending to China of
a Japanese division, an increase which
the commanders at Tien Tsin will
lie especially welcome there. The
official added, no object ion is taken to
the landing of forces by any allied
powers if Ihey will only hasten their
arrival.
Tlie liritish Charge d'AffairS, Lord
(.lough said ton representative ofthe
Associated Press: "The Powers now
engage in a new Interchange of views
regarding Japan's most recent injuirv.
lull each Power has answered for itself. The powers are nol iu a hurry
io formulate a more remote plan of
political action in China, as the first
thing necessary is the relief of
Pekin."
Tho Gorman Government fears the
spread of trouble in Shan Tung and
distrusts Ihe Shan Tung Governor,
Yuan shi Kai, and this feeling iseon-
lirnicil by Lu Hal Ilouan, who char'
actct'izes Yuan Shi Kai as a devil
known I'or his treachery. If is believed here lhat the destruction of
missions in Shan Tung, which were
under the charge of French ami Herman Catholics and Americans, would
not have occurred if Van Shi Kai had
been sincere in his professions, because he has 8,000 Provincial troops
under his control who arc the best
drilled and armed in China. These he
claims to be holding ready against a
possible attack by a German expedition from Tsin Tan.
The Eippcror is ordering more and
more vessels lo get ready for China.
The latest ordered to prepare are the
small but excellent cruisers Niobc.
Spcerbcr. Sehwalbc. Bussard and Seemlier. A division of new 450-ton torpedo beats Is also being prepared.
They will make twenty-six knots an
hour and arc expected to arrive by
the middle of August, before the
troops, and will be used for river service   and    communications    between
large vessels. The Emperor will also
send a crew to man the Chinese torpedo boat destroyer awarded Germany
at Taku.
BERESFORD'S   OPINION.
Says Troublo in China Will Be Disastrous to British Trade.
London, July 10.���Bear Admiral
Lord Charles Bercsford. speaking at
Malta nt the Naval and Military Society Monday evening, snid the trouble in China would be far-reaching
anil disastrous in its consequences to
liritisli trade there It wonld be a
military, not a maritime war. and
the Powers that could place on the
spot the greatest number of troops
would eventually have substantial advantages. The Powers not consenting
to the "open door." particularly Russia, he declared, would eventually
lose supremacy. He said it was a pity
Hint his proposals respecting the reorganizations of the Chinese army had
not been accepted by the British Government with a view to the possibility of a general war. Lord Ilere.'.ford
advocated an imperial conference to
which all the Colonies should he invited to discuss a scheme of defence.
CANADIAN MISSIONARIES.
Secretary of Foreign   Mission Board
issues a Statement ln Regard
to Them.
Toronto, July 10.���Rev, R. P. McKay, Secretary to the Foreign Missin
Hoard of the Presbyterian Church,
which has a number of missionaries
in the disturbed regions of China, has
issued the following statement: "In
answer to a cablegram sent to the
American consul at Che Poo by Dr.
Warden on the 3rd of July, the following answer came yesterday. 'Mc-
Cluro cabled llllth later. Chu Wang
burned. llonan missionaries escaping southwards, not coining to Che
Foo.' "The Canadian Presbyterian
Church has three stations in the Province of Hunan, Chu Wang, about
SO miles north of Chu Wang and Using
Chen, about Ml miles south of Chu
Wang.
"An unsigned cablegram came on
the .'Kith of June reporting all well in
Hunan, Doubtless the word ''thirtieth'' in this cablegram should be
thirteenth," That would give time
for sending to Che Foo this message
that came today, reporting that later
the mission premises were burned and
Ihe missionaries were escaping southward. "

A BRACK OF l'.AKK ONES.
The   Melnnes    correspondence   has
Wen  brought   down.    Much   Interest
wan taken In it. as it was   mov
in both Bouses of Parliament.
Mr.   Melnnes  learned  that  th
fidential letters which passed between
the  Secretary   of  state  and himself
were   to be   Included, he hastened   to
have the correspondence   published in
tie C-n-st newspaper-,   with a preface
of   generous dimensions ".addressed   to
the people of liritish Columbia.      The
impression   is given   that tlie   letters
thus   published  comprise  the  entire
correspondence, but we  Bhall   not   be
surprised If the  return  made  to  the
order   of   tbe   Senate   shall   disclose
some others which  Mr. Melnnes  considered either   t.��> immaterial   or too
disagreeable t.. produce.
What appears as most remarkable
at first glance is that the entire correspondence furnished by Mr. Melnnes is marked confidential. Communications of official interest, on matters of gravest public Importance,
pass between the Secretary of Sta.e.
representing the Federal authorities,
and the Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia, and they are hedged
with a privacy that was intended to
preserve them from the profane gaae
of the people who were most deeply
concerned. The next observation is
a* painful as the first was surprising.
Throughout the entire correspondence
there is not a word to show that the
public interests of the Province were
the first concern of these two men
who had them in charge snd dallied
with them as they willed. From the
first it is plain that Mr. Melnnes
kept his right eve sharply open to
chances fur himself, and his left for
his very dear friend. Mr. Martin:
while Mr. Scott, in behalf of the Federal  Qovernment,   ��i>  scheming  to
.., \> Mr. Martin from rising to the
burface and taking the control of Provincial affairs Into liis own hands.
Whether the Lieutenant-Governor was
outraging the traditional proprieties
of political life and making mincemeat of responsible government and
constitutional practice are matters
which du not appear to have appealed
even for one instant to the consideration of the Federal Minister: hi-, one
and only concern waa t,. Influence his
"friend." Mr. Melnnes, to discountenance Mr. Martin. That gentleman
Is evidently not persona grata at Ottawa, and in the light of Mr. Scott's
letters we can rend a much deeper
meaning than appeared on tbe surface into those letters from the Federal Premier whieli Mr. Martin de-
lighted to exhibit in the earlier days
of the campaign.
Bo far as the correspondence which
has been published in the Cast newspapers enable us to judge, the .secretary uf State appears in a mnch worse
light than Mr. Melnnes. and that
light is reflected on the Federal Government as a whole. He lectures the
late Governor, and instructs him in
his duties, under the pretence of
friendly interest, while always careful at the same time to protect his
communications with the seal of privacy. There is no reason why jxili-
ticians. and even officials iu high
authority, should not have their confidential intercourse, but it is open to
very grave doubt whether the events
ot the past two years in the politics
of British Columbia were a tit subject
for private correspondence between
a revolutionary Governor aud a
Federal Minister whose duty it was
to keep him within bounds. Perhaps
when   the   official   return   appears   a
different  iplexion will Is- given   to
the correspondence, bnt at present
the conviction i- very strong thnt Mr.
Scott ban m..re regard for his parly
than he has for the duties and re-
���possibilities ot n Federal   Minister.

who is to return to the Bench. Owing
to the physical infirmities of Sir Richard 1 artwright, which have knocked
nearly all the fight out of that gentleman. Mr. Fielding is to be made
Premier of the n nstructed Government. It ts not unlikely that Mr.
Sifton and Mr. Tarte may be forced
to retire, but to make the other
changes mentioned would be rather
risky work In the present condition

The country may well stop to con
slder whether it is not high time to
overhaul this policy of granting railway subsidies when Parliament is
asked to grant a large sum of money
to aid in building a railway for the
convenience of those who wish to visit the Thousand Islands. Those islands are very beautiful, no doubt,
and it is not surprising that they
have become a favorite and fashionable slimmer resort : but whether the
country is bound to supply them with
railway accommodation is quite another matter. The policy will not be
too severely criticised as long as it is
confined to enterprises calculated to
develop the resources of the country.
but when it is employed in the supply
of luxuries for the leisure class it is
an imposition on the good nature of
the public.

FRUITS AND CONFECTIONERY
Mr. Houston sick and Mr. Houston
well are too very different persons.
The citizens of Nelson got a taste of
the latter at the Council meeting on
Monday night, when he openly and
iffensively rebuked the religious and
moral sentiment of the public. They
saw the sick .Mr. Houston to great
advantage when lie was standing as a
.audi.late for Mayor last January.
At that time he was most religiously
disposed, and could outrun the
churches themselves in his teal for
moral reform.

Some Coast Criticisms ot  Mile. Tre-
beiil's Voice.
Mile. Trebelli captivated the musical oult in the Capital last Friday
evening ami the following extract
from a Const paper shows the impression she made upon her hearers:
" Mile. Trebelli is gifted with a soprano voioe of exquisite quality and
remarkable power bo completely under
control that it responds to each effort of the singer like u master instrument to the touch of the master. It is
more like what is designated a magic
flllte anil is ho fresh iu its youthful*
ness. so pure In its beauty, thai the
most unimpressionable of auditors
could not hut tie held uinler tlie sway
of its delightful enchantment,
" It is a voice pregnant with human
expression, anil thrills with its intensity anil power of interpretation. The
hall was bardly adequate in some instances to hold its full (.'lory, hul
Mile. Trebelli was perfectly at home
ln her environment, anil the veiled
tones compelled the rapt attention of
the listeners, while the thrilling outburst of melody roused them toenthu-
-iasm. The most difficult passages appear to l>e mere incidentals in the
singer's art, while the predominating characteristic in her personality
was the ever present naturalness. Madame Nevada demonstrated splendid
control over her vocal powers, aud her
vocalization and the perfect median-
ism of her voire were fully exploited,
but she in some Instances chilled,
while Mile. Trebelli thrilled, and
wherein Madame Nevada failed to
touch the popular chord, Mile. Trebelli held her audience under complete
sway by the magic of her art."
Next Monday evening she will Bing
here uud no one should miss the opportunity of hearing her,

enthusiastic one. Yours truly. ,1. 11.

bariansand later as the lover subdued
