London, July IH.��� The Telegraph's
Shanghai correspondent reports trouble near the German settlement of
Tsin Tau. Lieutenant Schocller was
sent out with a conipany of disciplined Chinese troops, who deserted to
the enemy with their arms ami am
munition.
COLOSSAL ARMIES,
Shanghai, July CI.���Stories of colossal Chinese armies gathering continue
to worry not only the rank and tile,
but tbe commanders, who admit the
uncertainty of reeonnaisanee and the
complete absence of an effective intelligence department. Chinese information is received with extreme distrust, it is obvious that though there
are many thousands of Chinese camped behind the puna, nothing- can be
done at present except to await the
arrival of reinforcements. The rainy
season has set in and this makes going
into the interior extremely difficult.
The country between Pekin and Tien
Tsin in other years has frequently
been Hooded. River transport is almost impossible and thc railway is
practically non-existent, and must be
entirely rebuilt. Military opinion is
unanimous that if the Legations did
not need relief it Would be foolish to
attempt an advance before September.
LI'S STRINGENT MEASURES.
London. July 13.���According to The
Daily Telegraph's correspondent, in a
dispatch dated Thursday, United
States Consul MeWade has great In-
lluencc with Li Hung Chang   and   lias
persuaded him to issue n proclamation containing detailed instructions
to prefects, sub-prefects, and magistrates.
It orders them to detect, behead niul
otherwise severely punish Boxers.
These ollieials. the proclamation says,
will be held responsible for the safety
of thc missionaries and native Christians. The Governors of two quongs
join iu thc proclamations.
Another proclamation Issued by  Ll
Hung Cluing directs thut persons
starting un uprising ahull be at
once beheaded, and that those
spreading false rumors shall be
severely punished. This latter
phase, in a Chinese sense, means
slow strangulation by means of a
wooden collar.
PRINCE HENRY'S OFFER DECLINED.
Berlin, July 13.���Prince Henry of
Prussia has been informed by the Emperor that the Prince's offer to assume
command of the ironclad division In
Chinese waters la thankfully declined.

London, July 13.���A Btory is current
that several Foreign Offloe officials

Pretoria, July 1:1. ��� Colonel   Mahon,
reinforced by General French's brigade
yestcrdny, took ull the positions held
by the Hoers in the neighborhood of
itictfoiitcin. A number of Hoer
dead were found. The British casualties were trilling.
Regarding the disaster to the Lincolnshire Regiment on Wednesday it
appears that five companies were
ordered to proceed ami hold the pass
through Magelsburg In the neighborhood of the Duspoors fort. They arrived In the nfternoon at the pass,
where three companies with two guns
took up a position and camped for the
night, leaving two companies on a
plain south of the pass.
The eastern bill wus rugged and inaccessible, but further cast it was apparently approachable from the main
ridge. At daybreak yesterday the
Boers appeared on the eastern kopje
and opened a heavy fire. Confusion
ensued. The Colonel ordered the men
to take up a position on a kopje west
of the gup. From thiH point a hot
lire wns kept tip during the entire
day.
Two guns under the escort of thc
Scots Greys placed in advance ofthe
main body were captured after a stout
resistance. Nearly every man was
killed or wounded. A Maxim gun was
brought into action early in the day.
The tire was too hot and the men were
forced to retire. A sergeant aided by
seven volunteers saved the gun.
There was 11 continuous fire all along
the line, the Lincolnshire men replying vigorously. About 3 o'clock in
thc afternoon the Hoers appeared to
the left of tlie position occupied by
thc liritish. An officer and fifteen
men attempted to charge them, and
fourteen men were killed or wounded
as thc result.
Three companies were practically
surrounded but Lhcy kept up a steady-
tire     unwaveringly     until      towards
nightfall when their ammunition
gave out. The last arrival from the
scene states that at thc time of his escape tho men were talcing a good
position under cover and with fixed
bayonets awaited the approach of the
Boers.
It is understood upon good authority that the Boers have employed
armed natives. Two of thc natives
leaped from cover when a small party
from thc Llnconshire Regiment step-
ped up and demanded their surrender.
A soldier stepped forward ami shot
both natives dead.
One orliccr, who succeeded in milking liis escape, had an encounter with
an aTmed native, it is feared that
thc losses of the liritish were numerous. About thirty of tlie liritish
soldiers straggled back to camp today,
According to all accounts a great
force is being assembled to prevent
further progress of the Hoers.

Time of the House Chiefly
Taken Up With Railway-
Subsidies.

(SPECIALS TO Tin: MINIER.)
Ottawa, Ont.. July 13. ���In the
House yesterday the Manitoba and
Northwest Railway subsidies passed
without opposition as did also that
for the Kaslo and Lardo-Duncan Road
in British Columbia. While there
was general discussion there was no
real opposition to any of the subsidies.
When the House met in tlie afternoon debate on railway subsidies was
continued. Mr. Blair, replying to
Mr. Poster, said that it did not suit the
honorable gentleman to lecture anyone for changing his views on public
questions. He had heard Mr. Poster
express the opinion that the country
was ripe, rotten ripe, for prohibition.
That was before Mr. Poster had any
responsibility as a public man. lie
did not want to accuse the acting
leader of the Opposition of want of
sincerity, but having changed
his own views on thc question
of prohibition he ought to have a
little more consideration for others
who were not nearly so guilty as he
was. He (poster) had only moments
of weakness. Having made such a
confession it did not become him
now to lecture other people whom lie
was not competent to lecture, nor
did holding himself out as a deuii-god
become him. Blnir said that twenty-
live of tile resolutions had been before
the honse already, The resolutions
were taken up in committee.
All the railway resolutions were
adopted. Blair uildvd a clause to the
resolution providing that subsidized
roads should buy their rails in Canada when they eouid do so as favorably as elsewhere and the Minister
should be judge as to that.

THOSE MONEY BY-LAWS,
We think the Mayor has good reason
to feel anxious over the fate of his
electric light bylaw, but   if   it were
uot for tlie Indifferent management of
the civic works so far undertaken this
year we do not believe there would be
thc    least   ground     for   apprehension
with regard to any of the others.   The
citizens of Nelson are  an enterprising
and progressive   people, and when expenditure la necessary to do justice to
the city's needs they are willing to go
down into their pockets   for any   sum
withlu reason.    But they are strongly
disposed   to    stipulate   for   ordinary
business discretion and common   sense
in laying   OUt   the   money   they   are
willing to supply. If the more natural
process of six Aldermen sitting on one
Mayor had been adopted,  rather than
that of one Mayor sitting on six Aldermen, the mistakes of the present  year
would In all probability not have  occurred.   The evil of our civic administration is in permitting a small-bore
man   like   Mr. John   Houston,   whose
only   distinguishing   characteristic  is
his spirit of  aggressiveness, to   bully
his way to his own ends.
Early in the season, at   the   suggestion of this  man,   it  wns  decided to
make an experiment in macadamising.
Why this should have lieen considered
necessary we do not know. The world
experimented with macadamising several centuries ago,  and   every grownup man in it capable of seeing,   reading, and understanding knows exactly what it  ia.    There   in  nothing  to
learn about macadamising, yet in Nelson in thc year lUiid it was considered
necessary to deal with it as an experiment,    Also at the suggestion of the
Mayor it was decided to make the experiment on a side   street,   aud   on   a
portion of It that is little   used and is
never likely to be subjected   to   heavy
traffic.     Here some thousands of   dollars were expended, ostensibly for the
purpose of   ascertaining   what   every
man    of   intelligence   already   knew.
but really to  serve   some   purpose  of
the Mayor's   own.    Kor  all   practical
good obtained by it. beyond  pleasing
the eye with a piece of finished   road,
tho money might as well have been expended ln digging drains in the Lake.
The same money would have put   our
main street in capital condition for at
leaBt two years' wear.    When citizens
reflect on   bucIi   gross blundering   or
worse in tlie management of our civic
affairs, they feel reluctant to vote any
money   that   is   to be   subject   to tbe
control of" this  much   too dictatorial
and self-interested Mayor.
Thc   electric   light  by-law   is   in a
category   by   Itself.    The majority of
citizens who take thc trouble   to concern    themselves    wilh    corporation
matters   are  beginning   to   entertain
very   grnve  doubt   whether our i Ice
trie   light   plant,   thc   original   possession   of   which   was founded   in  n
Swindle, is worth the   expenditure of
a   single   additional     dollar.     There
is an organic inadeqiiatcncss about it
that cannot lie remedied short   of the
very drastic process of casting   it out
root   and   branch   and   Installing  an
entirely   new   one.      Tbe   Miner   lie
lieves it would be a great mistake   to
fritter  away   any   more   money upon
it.    The plant is antiquated,   and the
limit of power has been reached unless
we    are to   expend   several times   tin
fifteen   ..nousand asked   for in  the bylaw.    The town is not prepared lo di
that   just   now.   and   never    will   b
prepared as long aa Mr. Houston   lis
the  direction  of   affairs,    lly far th
wisest   thing   to   do   with   this civi
enterprise   is   to   drop it where It is
The Miner  is informed that thc City
has   an   offer   for   Its  purchase.      If
reasonable   conditions  can   be  mad
to insure an electric service at moder
ate   rates,   nothing  would   be   mor
satisfactory than to complete the deal.
But whatever views may prevail witl
regard to this, we believe the elcctoi
who have the   fate  of the   by-law i
their hands will not go wrong if the
refuse to vote another dollar to patel
up the present worn-out system.

A few evenings ago the Spokane

speed just as a carload of visitors to
the park had strung themselves along
that portion of the track that pedest-
Isns are obliged to use to get to the
pavilion. There are curves, trees, and
rocks, not only to obstruct the view
but to obstruct sound, and under pre-
sent arrangements the conditions are
favorable to a fatal accident at tliis
place. Either the park authorities or
the railway people or both should give
some thought to this matter, ln order
that nothlngworse than a great fright
