Tien Tsin, July I. vln Clio D'oo,
July s, anil Shanghai, July 11. ��� A
honogeneous army nf half Ihe strength
of ihe .-illieil forces eniilil do better
than is being done by tho allies. The
operations are dangerously handicapped and the safety of Ihe city la
Imperilled by a loch ot organization
ami the want nf one commander in
control all the forces,
Tin- representatives nf the several
nations manage the military anil civil
affairs nf their governments largely
without co-operation. Tic ranking
nilieer nf each nationality has absolute
jurisdiction over the operations nf his
Government's troops.
Questions nf polioy .'ire discussed
daily al international conferences
which have mil Ihe power In enfurce
the wishes of the majority, Admiral
Seymour's mothod nf commanding is
to make requests,
The  other   commanders   generally
follow these lint there have lieen instances nf the ranking officers holding
aloof from operations nf  which they
disapproved. There is great need nf
nf more troops,
MORE   TROOPS NEEDED.
The present   foroe nf 10,0110 men   is
attempting in hold �� line fifteen miles
long around the city.
There is also great neeil of rcbnillithe railroad to Taku and getting
artillery equal to tho guns with
which the Chinese arc daily bombarding the allies' position. Tho week'
work resulted in a substantial gaii
fnr the Chinese. The allies h.st fifty
or sixty uieii ami accomplished nothing.
yesterday furnished a new illustration of the weakness nf the present
methods, A majority nf the commanders had agreed thai it was Imperative to attack the native city beyond the foreign settlements ami in
destroy the   artillery  tlierein.   which
menaced the settlements,    The attack
was tixeil for four   days   ago, hill was
postponed because the Russian commander considered his men unfit for
the duty after their recent work. It
was again fixed fnr yesterday morning, but was postponed because creditable reports were iu circulation thai
111,11110 regulars from the north-west
had reinforced the Chinese.
TERRIFIC BOMBARDMENT.
In the meantime the Chinese had removed two big guns from Ihe   lint  In
a point near the native city   ami   hail
planted four In Hie open near the cast
arsenal, t\\ Ilea away. These shelled the city fnr fonr hours, Bending in
more than ten hundred missiles. They
gut the range nf the public buildings
llllll of the clllh hoUSCS used ,is   In.spi-
lals, ami dropped explosives all about
them.
Fortunately most nf the shells were
defective and failed tn burst and the
others had 11 small radius nf effectiveness,   In the absence nf a concerted
plan the Russians sent a  few i ipali-
les of Cossacks with  two field guns,
and the   Japanese   n    battery   nf   six
three-pounders ami two companies nf
infantry to support tile English twelve
pounders from II. M. S. Terrible in
an attempt tn silence the Chinese
pieces.
The Tcrrihle's guns failed tn goi all
effective position and the Russian's
hail one gun dismounted ami four men
killed in the engagement. The Japanese wore confident  Unit   they silenced
the guns In tbe open, but   it appeared
to tl nlookera thai   those guns drod
the last shuts while the Japanese were
retiring. The lIussiaiiH lost heavily
ami the Japanese had   one   killed anil
twelve wonnded,
SITUATION   CH .OTIC.
The Chinese threw ji few shells Into
'he city this morning tn show Unit
they were still alive. A liritish officer described the situation OS chaos.
He said: "Vie have wasted many days
In politeness and 11 is lime we did
fOBIfIhlug, ���'   There   Is  110  disagree
ment among the commanders, but In
tlie absence of a definite bead several
nf them are disposed to follow their
own methods and Ihey simply abstain
from operations contrary to these
methods.
The foreign population is greatly
aroused concerning this apparent ap-
pathy. While the city is being born-
barded ihey are likely to suffer heavily,
and they cannot understand tbe apparent negligence of the Governments
in furnish relief, and why reinforcements are not coming on faster.
The Americans are particularly dissatisfied because, though they have
one of the smallest representations
their interests are second to none.
one experienced nilieer said: "It is
Impossible to realize at home that
there has been more real war here
than in Culm or the Philippines."
The tiei'inans have occupied and
raised their Dag over the Imperial
University oi Tien Tsin. The officers
of the University aro Americans and
the Viceroy had deeded the property
to them. Consul Ragsdalc has protested against tho aetton of tbe Germans.

eussinn on the Post Otlice Act followed. Davin's amendment in committee was defeated 37 fnr to 44
against. The bill was afterward reported and the third reading was carried by 7!i fnr the bill and  .'Hi against.
Dr. Borden's Militia Bill, fnr the
purpose of giving power to appoint
colonels fnr the militia, was also read
a third time. The bill was changed
to read that the commanding offices
of districts must not be filled by any
one below the rank of colonel instead
of by a lieutenant-colonel as at present.
Lieutenant-colonels on the retired list
may be made colonels without having
to go back to tbe militia. There is
nothing in the bill' about honorary
oolonels,
On motion to go into supply, Mr.
Mimct brought up the trnuhle which
took place between the Collector of
Customs at St. John's, One., and a
man named Potvtn, He said that the
abusive language which Wood bad
used tn Pntvin was not such as ought
In come from au Officer of the Crown
and be ought to be dismissed.
There was an altercation between
the above gentlemen as to tlie justice
of the war In South Afrlea, Mr.
Wood said he was living in a place
where half the people were sympathizers with the Hners and where they
gloated over every British soldier that
was killed and wanted tn see all the
Canadians at the front killed. He
also added that it was ii pity that
more French Canadians were not
banged as a result of the 1837 trouble.-.
Mr. Monet said he would not trouble about the matter as far as the altercation went, but Mr. Wood had
published a letter iu the press the
day afterward repeating parts of
what he said. Premier Laurier in
reply said that the matter would be
enquired into, that be did not believe any one should use language I
such as Wood did. but it was particularly objectionable ooming from a,
Qovernment official. There were
Knglish speaking [H'tiplc who were
concerned in the 1037 affair and the
City of Toronto was arranging for a

the front killed, no matter what their
views might be.    Still   be   would   nut
condemn   Woods unheard ami there-
fore  an   Investigation    would    take j
plaoe.     Mr.    Bourassa spoke nn   lines
similar   tn   Mr.    Mnnel    and   Clarke.
Wallace supported Wood after   which I
the House went Into supply,
Mr. Mills, in the Senate, endeavored to move the House back Into committee tn restore a clause in the
Judge's Hill in regard in ihe appointment uf three judges iu Quebec, bul it
was defeated by ill fnr to  ::i against.
The Senate then proceeded tn deal
wilh thc criminal code by again striking nut nf it a clause which exempted
race   unions   and labor   organisations
from the operation of the law in regard to combinations, Mr. Mills said
that this would have the effect of
killing the bill. It was put in by the
Uovernment in the lirst place and was
knocked out by the Senate. The Commons restored it and now the Senate
refuses again to accept it.
Good progress was made with the
supplementary estimates ami the

KASLO  NEWS.
General News of tho Mining Situation In
Thai District.
Kaslo, July 13.���The soutli fork of
Kaslo River is one of the most promising districts . iu the whole mining
region. The Excelsior Company, the
Pactolus Company and  Mr. Mansfield
have spent quite a large aggregate
sum up there and now one bears of
renewed activity. Tbe companies
named are busily at work while the
Bismarck has just re-Started, McAnn
and .MacKay, Charles Sampson and
other local parties are interested.
M. Hicks returned from the Suutb
Fork yesterday where he is working
on a group of claims adjoining the
at une time much talked of Gibson
mine. Mr. Hicks has done fast work
on bi_ group. He only located the
claims with partners a fortnight ugo
and already be bus a 30-foot shaft
sunk, lie believes he has got a good
thing. At the bottom of the shaft
ibcrc is a well mineralised vein.
The ore shipments through the port of
Kaslo last month totalled, according tu
CuBtoms Colleotor Mackintosh. .'1.304
tons.and the value was 1884,034, Prom
January 1 to today the total ore shipments in Kaslo have beeu 8,380 tons,
of a value of about half a million dollars.   Prom Slocan Lake points 1,400
tons have been shipjied this year and
the tonnage via Saiidoii hns not been
inconsiderable. To place the total
shipments from the Blooan and Ainsworth at 10.000 tons for tbe half year
would not be overstepping the mark,
and the value slmuld be between three*
quarters and a mi Minn dnllars. Those
iu a position to knew say thut the
shipments for the next six months
will be much larger than for the six
months just closed, and the district
will thus regain the position it occupied before the great strike.

but possibly it is not. And if not,
the reflection forces itself that our
Constitution is faulty In that it requires the co-operation of the Provinces
to give completeness to the legislative
power of the Dominion.
The good people of the Coast have
already discovered that in one respect
at least the Province has been favored
by the appointment of sir Henri Joly
as Lieutenant-Governor. We have no
doubt tbey will And many things to
please them before Hia Honor's term
is much older: but there Is a special
and very genuine satisfaction In the
thought that his influence will always
be eaerted In favor of forest preservation, and that his knowledge of
forestry and arboriculture generally.
obtained fnnn long study and experience,  will   Is- of   great   service   to
thoee whoee business it is to give
these mailers the attention due to
their importance. There are cranks
and erankn Some of them are a
nuisance which it would be a blessing
to abate; others are simply entlius-
iasu. who are often worth more than
their weight in gold. Sir Henri Joly
ia a crank of the latter class, and in
his own Province of Quebec has for a
great many years been doing pssl a~
an enthusiast in forestry thai is Is--
vond calculation.
There is opportunity ami to spare
for a generous exercise of bis enthusiasm in this Province. British Columbia is rich in its forest resources,
but is becoming p.n>rer every year by
reason of tires. So splendid arc those
resources that we have become prodigal of them. There is no other
district on this continent of North
America that is ae rich iutiiuK'r:
in f��et. it is the only one of large
dimensions that now remains, aid
the Importance of making the most
of those riches is beginning to dawn
on the min.is of those who think the
subject worthy of consideration.
His Honor is sniy to make the ins'-
esaary inquiry, and when be does he
will ascertain lhat the law for the
protection of our forests is not en-
tuenad as rigidly as it ought to be.
The authorities are careless: not that
they are wantonly indifferent to the
destruction that is going on. but
rather through lack of appreciation of
all thi�� destruction means. Tlie
Governor will no doubt Boon put them
right on this  point.
Already be has suggested the idea
of adding to tbe wealth we now poa-
ama. He has himself In-en most sue-
eaS-fol in cultivating the black walnut in Quebec and he thinks it could
in- taken up in British Columbia to
even grealer advantage. He has ss-t
the thought in circulation; be has
planted it in men's minds, a* some
year, ago he planted walnuts in the
���oil of his native Province, ami it will
probably take root and grow, lint let
ui rather give our first and Wst attention to making tbe most of what we
have. Of the making of paper Iherc
ia no end. It is growing enormously
in it* proportions, and even now the
raw material for pulp is as valuable
as a gold field. One is almost afraid
Ut eonlemplaie what it will lx- twenty

except ihe Vancouver High School,
ami the fact of the examination questions lving based upon it gives ground
for the suggestion that this grammar

candidates from all pans of liritisli
Columbia." The Province cannot afford to have a complaint of this kind,
and the authorities of the Department
will do well to look Into it.

Mr. Houston is afraid that if the
ltonnington Vails wires get into the
City the people will have too cheap
lighting. Therefore he advocates
keeping them out. He thinks it is
better for the citizens to pay stiff
prices, ill order that the plaut be sold
lo the corporation for several times
its value may show a profit in operation, and thus ease his conscience. It
is a peculiar argument. bnt very
Houstonian. The people an' to tax
themselves to produce a dividend for
themselves, all for the gratification of
this fearfully and wonderfully consti-

Dear sir: - Referring to our conversation with you aud your Cabinet this

In our own Interests and those of
the citizens of Slocan City, we have
endeavored to show lo you the absolute necessity of a wagon road being
built from Lemon ('reek Siding on
the Canadian Pacific Railway to tbo
headwaters of the first north fork of
Lemon Creek
Knowing the difficulties thai the
present Government Im* to contend
with, financially, wo,> as representatives of the Chapleau Consolidated

Warner-Miller Syndicate of New York,
propose to advance thc money and
build the rond immediately, condl-
dltlonally on the Government of
Britisli Columbia agreeing to reimburse ns iii tho amount of 8(1,000, or

.1.   M.  WILLIAMS.
PERCY DICKINSON,
The letter was nt once forwarded to
the Premier nnd with equal despatch
did the Government act upon the matter, for late in the evening Messrs.
Williams and Dickinson received the
following reply :
Premier's Office, Victoria, B.C.
Percy Dickinson, Bra. nud J, M, Williams. Esq., lintel Drlartl, Victoria:
Dear Sirs���Your letter of this date
with reference to a wagon road
from Lemon Creek Siding on the ('. P,
ft. to tho bend waters of the first
North Fork of Lemon Creek, hns been
received and the proposal made by
you for reimbursement by the Government of one-half the total cost of construction, the same UOt to exceed .?!'.'.-
non, has had careful consideration,
The Government fully appreciates
the Importance of tlie rond nod the
desirabilities of the companies represented by you undertaking it so as to
expedite the work as much ns possible, Under thc circumstances, therefore, the Government hns agreed to
place a sum iu the lv.ninnies for 1(101,
to provide for the Government's share
in the undertaking,
It is understood, however, thai lie-
fore tho money to lie appropriated is
paid over the work of construction
must be reported on and approved by
the Government Engineer or an engineer appointed by the Govornmcnt for
the purpose. Your Truly,
(Signed) JAMES DUNSMUIR,
Premier,
Further comment is hardly necessary
for   the    tWO    letters    tell    their   own
story. The promptness with which
the Government acted In tho matter
will go a great way towards establishing them In the confidence of mining
men in genernl. Particularly will il
have thai effect in tho Kootenays since
one of the Cabtnot's first official nets
was to encourage devolopmcnl iu this
dint rid.
.Messrs Williams and Dickinson are to
lie congratulated upon their success in
