PROTECTION OF  BRITISH SUBJECTS  London, .July, 3.���������In the House of  Commons   this  afternoon,'Karl  Percy,  the foreign under secretary,    replying .to la suggestion that a friendly  representation���������'should< bc_ made to the |  Russian     government proposing      a  temporary    suspension of  the treaty  Bucharest, July 3.���������The port authorities at Kuslenji, Roumania,  have been.instructed to call upon the  7,-50 mutineers who are on board the  Km a/. Polemkine to land from that  vessel without arms, informing them  thai they would lie treated as foi-  cign deserters wjile in Roumania en,  the event of the refusal of the mutineers lo submit to thesd conditions,  or hostile action against the town,  (lie .Roumanian warships were ordered  lo use force.  There is much excitement over the  Kiiia.z PotemK'ine, where differences  opinion exist between the leaders,  'omc of whom advocate landing in  Roumania, while othere propose, to  leturn to .Russia and joining the oth-  ei mutmicMis ships. The prefect of  KusUnji permitted a delegation of  the mutineers to enter the tojivn and  pin chase provisions. The sailors report that the Black iSea Heel not only did not try to capture the Kniaz  Polemkine, but. ihr.t the crews of  the ships openly rejoiced when the  rebel ba Ilk ship left   Odessa.   *  The  ciew  of  the  Russian  gunboat  Psczouapc,  now at Kuslenji,       met  sonic of  the ciew of the Kniaz Po-  temkine,  accompanied   by  a Russian  torpedo boat.   About 600 Roumanian  soldiers are being concentreted      at  KuMonji   to   meet   eventualities   and  the cabinet  ministers  aie  pioceedtng  there today  to deal  with the situation.

They  were "still reposing - comfortably in  the worthy president's pocket, prepared to return to their beds in the  velvet cushions in' Mr!

The crowd craned their necks in order to view an interesting ceremony,  for Fletcher for the home team had  crossed the plate. The ceremony  vvas woithy of the occasion, and an  fact put us in mind of the daily bistort y stories when 4vin<i,te knighted  followers for the performance of some  great ant. The only difference was  that this ceremony.:was a trifle more  impressive for unlike olden times  when the king     used to do .the whole  kept a great many of the prizes in  Ladysmith. Those who have been  residents of Ladysmith since the  building of the town was first commenced, say that Saturday's regatta  excelled any ever held here. The spit  was crowded with spectators and the  continued cheeiing testified to the.  enthusiasm. As is usually the case,  the Indian war canoe race was the  most inteiesting and the most appreciated event on the regatta program.  I'our canoes were entered and the  lace was most closely contested.  V.ilelc/. Island upheld their reputation as" champions of the neighbor,  hood which they have earned and dc-  iscrvccd, in recent times, ami Kupcr  Island struck home second. The keen  yet good-natured livalry between the  two islands is most interesting, and  as at Victoria regatta this yeai,  Valdez won only hy a small range.
