Jlayhee Mineral Claim���������Adjoins the  Nettie Ij. on the iiurtli. A cross-cut  is being pushed ahead to tup the ledge  al, 11 depth of ;_0() .Vet, and is now in 300  feet, hul tho ore body is not expected  to hi' int'L with fur sonic distance yet.  Other properties on the same ledge  are the I. y. Ij. Group, cm which 11  cross-cut is in some 00 or 70 feet, and  the Bran and Raven mineral claims ; a  cross-cut of SO feet on t he latter is just  Hearing Lhe ledge.  The Giosscap Group, inthis vicinity,  is under thu control of a Toronto  Syndicate, which has just completed a  survey in order to obtain a. Crown  grant. This property has not been  developed to any depth, bob an  arrangement is now being completed  towards this end.  Silver Queen Mineral' Claim���������This  claim, on Great Northern Mountain,  has boen acquired by Air. A. St.' G.  llamersloy. of' Vancouver, represent-  i ig an Englist- Syndicate. An. old  cross-cut, which had bean driven  during previous. years 100 feet, was  continued a total distance of 280 feet,  cutting through, 1st, about 2 feet of  zinc ore; thou about 10 feet of concentrating ore, . consisting of galena,  in u quartz giingue; then seme 12  inches of iron ore, and, filially, IS  inches of solid steel galena. Drifts  have been run on the ledge. Lo the  right and left of the crsss-eut, for  aliout 30 and 23 feet, following the vein  of steel galena. Work on these drifts  i.i still continuing, and a contract has  just been let which will require the  gieater part of Ihe winter to complete.  A rawhide trail is being built troin  the mine to the trunk road on the  North Fork.  St. Elmo and Yankee mineral claims  adjoin the Silver Queen. A cross-cut  uumel, 125 feet below tlio upper  workings, is now in some 40 or GO lest,  and a small force of men is at ' work.  A shipment of ore from tiie upper  workings was made to the U.ill Minos  ! Smelter, and nut ted $S... 13 per ton in  Ull values.*  Of the balance of Lhe many promising claims iu this vicinity, none have  been doing any active development  since my hist report.' Many promising locations hive lieoii made iu this  neighbourhood during tbe past season  which" have good tjiirf.-uru showing.-,  and 'may. possibly become of im-  j port ante.  SOUTH Ii'OIlK OF L.UIDUAIJ CREEK.  Gletiside and Vera Groups.���������The  Commonwealth Mining and Develop  ment Company, which owns these  properties, h;is not followed up--the  development as was expected. The  only work done on the groups during  the past yoir was in making surveys.  Grown grants are being applied for.  Surprise Group.���������On I be Surprise  Group of mineral claims, on the Home  lead, the ledge has been cross-cut at a  lepth of some 50 feet, cutting ii'10-incli  vein of solid galena and about 3 feet of  concentrating ore. The walls me  very regular at. this depth, and are of  lime and slato. The lodge "has been  stripped on the surface at several  points, and has very heavy iron cropping, which carries small gold values.  Rob Koy and Highland Chief Groups.  ��������� .The Bob Rov and Highland Chief  Group's, alfo.on the. Horne ledge, have  re<:enLly_l)eeu.acquirud_by_tbe_.Scottish.  Canadian Mining and Development  Company, ot London. Ontario. The  claims have been surveyed and Crown  grants supplied for. The main ledge  is about 12 feet wid*e, with a heavy  iron,capping, and lies . in contact of  liiiie.and .slate.* Two smaller leads are  found running parallel with the main  ledge, distance from one another about  50 feet, und carrying small veins of  galena. A 200-foot cross-cut which  will tap all three ledges, ..is being extended under contract, and is now in  about 70 fei.'t. The Company has also  built about two miles-of good trail,  connecting with lhe Trunk' Government Trail: and commodious quarters  for the men have been erected,  The El-iclc Warrior Group.��������� At the  head of Surprise Greek, hasa. cross-cut  in about ISO feet. The lead is not expected to be cut until some 200 feet  have been run.  The I. X. L. .and Rllsmere Group ���������  On the Blackburn ledge, have a very  large surface exposure of concentrating ore. from which some good values  in gold have been obtained. No.doveln-  ment at depth has yet been .undertaken.

P., the new  Commissioner of T/mds and Works,  came up from the south on Saturday.  While here he was busily engaged  with government officials and other.-,  all the evening, among whom Pi evident. H. A. Brown and the hoard of  trade had their turn. In the interview  which followed and at which Thos.  Taylor, M.P.P., H. A. Brown, W. .Al.  Brown, I. T. Brewster. J. 31. .Scott. U.  F. Lindm.-irk. 11. Gordon and the  members of the local pre.-s were  present, the case of the proposed  wagon road into the Big Bend district was the subject of discussion  and llie arguments for tho load were  presented by the various members  present from different points of view  and a copy of the memorandum, whicli  is to be attached to the petition was  bunded to the minister. It seemed to  be the general feeling that if we could  get* $25,000 this next session to b.iild  the road as far as Carries Creek, it  would be a leasonably satisfactory  answer to our request. Mr. Taylor  said that he thought the ministers  whom he had recently seen in Victoria  were favorable to that proposition.  After hearing with great courtesy  ���������ind attention the whole discussion  Mr. Wells said that for his part he  was in favor of a vigorous policy of  development of the resources of the  country by road end trail building.  His idea was that a, sum of two  million dollars should be borrowed to  form a fund for this purpose, and if  his proposal to that effect w:is accepted by his colleagues and the house he  thought that Revelstoke might confidently expect to see the Big Bend  ro.-id built. As it was now train lime  "alter being tendered a hearty vote of  thanks' for the patient and kindly  hearing, which he had accorded the  deputation, ��������� Mr. Wells lefr. on the  Imperial Limited for Victoria.

The cricket match on Saturday wa-=  intended to be a return game, Town  v. O.P.R., but a good many of the  C.-P. P. ^players were away at the  wreck at Horseshoe Pit and some of  the Town side's best men had to play  for the C. P. R. to make up their 11.  One innings was played on each side,  the C. P. R. going* in first, captained  by C. .Wilks'aiid putting up 02. to  which B. lt. Atkins contributed '2i and  E. Thacker 10. . The town eleven,  captained by Dr. Cnrruthers. scored -10  runs. A curious feature of cricket in  Revelstoke" is the number of left  handed players. At one time on  Saturday there were two left handed  mun-in and one left handed player  bowline. A match " L"ft hand vs.  Right" has been suggested. The few  Saturday afternoons on which Ihe  weather this summer has permitted a  game have revealed considerable  cricketing strength in town. With a  little practice in Ihe field, which is the  weak point, a rattling good eleven  could be got together to lepresent  Revelstoke ' if a match could be  arranged with some other place. The  ladies are taking great interest in the  game. A number were present nn  the ground otr Saturday and Mrs.  Atkins. .Mrs. .T-M. Scott an_l__.I:si  Corbett dispensed refreshments, which  wore immensely appreciated.

THE WHITEWASHING OF BORDEN  Dr. Borden."iWHster of militia,  now known to fame as the "emergency ration" man, has been whitewashed in parliament by a majority  of 13, which to superstitious peoplo  is in itself a significant fact. Ten  Liberal members voted against him,  and characterized the deal as a  "swindle," but the abject followers of  the government were ready as usual  to assist in covering up what they  must have known was a fraud perpetrated on the country so .that a Grit  contractor might pocket the people's  money.  The people of Canada cannot be deceived at this stage of the game by  any dose of parliamentary whitewash,  however thick. They have read the  evidence and they know that the report of the majority ot the committee  was absolutely contradicted by the  facts brought out in evidence. They  know that had our boys iu South  Africa to rely on thc emergency ration, they would have died just as  surely as if it were deadly poison.  They know that the money which it  cost was a gift to Dr. Devlin and  some other .Interested parties. And  they also know what to do about it  when the time comes for them to  express their opinions.  Have No Intention of Building Beyond Edmonton.  Ottawa, July 11.���������A report has been  set out that the recent visit of Wm.  Mackenzie, the well known railway  magnate to England, was in connection with a project to extend the  Mackenzie and Mann railway, known  in the North West as the Canada  Northern to the Pacific coast. While  in the very distant future there may  be a second transcontinental line  within Canadian territory it may be  stated that Mackenzie and Mann have  not the remotest intention at present  to extend lheir railway beyond Edmonton.

One of the  things which the average   property     owner,     especially   in  the  small  towns  and  rural   districts,  is very   slow   to  comprehend   is, that  a policy  of  fire  insurance  is    not   a  promise  that in the   event of  a loss  by fire the company will pay the full  amount   named   therein.       In    .many  minds the idea seems fixed that    the  possession  of a policy  of    a    thousand dollars, for example, entitles the  holder to that amount from the company in case of fire, even if thc destruction  wrought    is    not    equal  in  value   to   that   amount.     Experienced  adjusters   fully   appreciate   the   difficulty of making clear to a large class  of the   insured  that  the  fundamental  idea  of  insurance  is  to    replace    or  enable  the    owner    to  .replace    that  which   has  been  lost���������simply   to  furnish indemnity.    The  company names  in its  policy  tbe  maximum    amount  which it undertakes  to  guarantee  in  case the  loss  should   reach   that amount,    the actual payment below that  maximum being always  equal  to the  actual loss sustained. Thus,the actual  loss, whatever it may  be, within the  policy limit, is the maximum    of liability of the company.    This practice  proceeds upon the principle that,   for  a stipulated   consideration, the   insurance   company, in  case  of loss,    puts  itself exactly in the place of the insured.    To  pay  less  than  the  actual  loss would be robbery of the insured;  to pay more would be robbery of the  insuring companies.  To Assassinate  the  President  of  United States.  the  New   York.   July  11.���������A  plot   to  assassinate President McKinley has been  frustrated.     It   was   concocted    by a  group, of   Spanish     and     Cuban   conspirators,  whose   headquarters  are  in  New Tork.     One of the plotters wilted  and  sent  a warning letter to a. member   of   Uie  the   Republica.n   National  committee.    That letter was placed in  the hands ot Secretary Charles Dick,  who referred    it  to    B. B.  Odell,  the  chairman    of    the    New    York  State  committee     for     investigation.       Mr.  Odell engaged a detective who speedily  verified   certain   important  allegations  made    in  the    warning    letter.  Thereupon Mr.   Odell  reported  to Mr.  Dick, who    laid  all    the facts    before  Senator Mark Hanna.     Odell's report  caused great alarm among  the president's  friends    and    advisors.      Odell  made   it   plain  that  he  regarded   the  plot as a matter of the utmost seriousness and urged    that extreme precautions  be  taken  to keep  the  president  out of harms reach.      Odell admitted  that he  and  certain   members  of  the  National     committee     discovered   the  plot to assassinate  the president.  Winnipeg, July 12:  Chicago wheat advanced  two cents.

Once   he  'didn't   return   for  several days;    she searched the hospitals���������he  was  not there.      She  enquired- at the police station, "no man  of that  name.'    Weeks    passed    and  still he stayed away.   It was not easy  for her to earn enough to feed   four  children.    She  had plaited  straw  before she was married    and  had heen  able  to make  a  shilling a   day.      A  hat manufacturer > gave her work now  but her fingers were slower than they  used to be and she had to work from  li  in  the  morning to 10  at  night to  earn a   shilling.   However  hor  eldest  girl, who stayed at home to take care  of  tho   three   little  ones,   was    aged  six, and she was earning two pense a  day   for   looking   after    a   neighbors  child.      Seven  shillings    a week was  not much   to  keep    five    bodies and  souls togethert;    but then it was only  for  a    little     while;     her    husband  would surely be hack soon.    One day  during dinner hour, having nothing to  eat  she  walked ? through    the    busy  streets and gazed in at the milliner's  windows to make her forget that she  was   hungry, and   something   seemeel  to direct her steps to the Old Bailie.  She wont in.    Sessions were on  and  the  court was  crowded.    As she entered she saw the usher holding open  a  door on the   opposite   side  of    the  court, and a man passed through.    It  was her husband!    A piercing scream  was heard and a fainting woman was  carried out, and the next case began.  She   as in an outer   office   when   she  came  to. attended hy one of the factory girls who had been in court and  heard  her  scream, and  from her  she  learned  that a prisoner who had refused   to   give   his  name     had   been  sentenced  to eight years penal servitude   for burglary.    Before    she  had  time to think she saw    through    the  office window, the prison van leaving  the   court  house.   She    almost    flew  after it, but a half starved woman is  no match for a well-fed pair of government horse, and  before the Black  Maria   had   gone  50 yards, she  could  run   no  further.     With    an    almost  superhuman effort she shouted: "Jim,  good  bye;     its  me���������Polly.      Forgive  me Jim?   Goodbye and God 'elp yer."  Then she buried lied face in her hands  and seemed to sob her heart out.  "Yes," said another member ofthe  party at this juncture, "that's a pretty  sad story. Eight years for burglary  is undoubtedly hard on a man. But  I knew a case of a dog which was  much worse." This interruption was  more than any of us could stand. The  silent man, who had not yet reached  his point, gave the intruder one look  and walked away. As for ourself we  told him very politely that a well  known business man in our own town  began a dog story some three and a  half years ago, and though he had  resumed .it on every possible occasion,  and at other times, he had not finished it yet, and that much as we wished to encourage him, the interrupter,  in the art of story telling, we feared  tried to do so. The singer on the  steamer was decidedly congregational  everybody sang, but in the evening  there, was another kind of concert, a  military band played all kinds of  music from grand opera overtures to  cakewalks, and the whole of Quebec  turned out in its best clothes and  promenaded up and down In front of  the hotel. As for us we sorted our-  selveg Into parties of twos and threes  ���������more tos than threes���������and promenaded too. Then we would sit down  for a little while and watch the reflection of the moon on the St. Lawrence,  and we would think of our past lives  and say���������well���������never mind what we  would say���������we had a most enjoyable  time.  "Homeward bound" was the thought  that woke  us  next  morning  and    it  was    a sad  awakening.      It    seemed  hard to  think  that  in    a few    days  more we should be home;    we   should  no longer be an influential Press excursion;    carriage drives, if any.would  be at our own expense;    tradespeople  would expect us to pay overdue accounts, and might even go so far as  to ask us to do  so.    ''Home"  in    the  abstract   is  a   beautiful  thought,   but  "home"  looked  at from    a    financial  point of view is the poor man's nightmare.     "Be it ever so humble there's  no place like home." Thank goodness  However, breakfast at the  Prontenac  put us Into a more cheerful state of  mind,    and we were tolerably resigned to our position when we got on  the train and secured the armchair in  the smoking compartment.   We soon  reached Montreal, and there wc completed the day iy a visit to Sohmer  park. This park is a beer garden with  an open air theatre.    'Twas a beautiful  night,  and  the  pale    moon  as it  shone through the sycamores   seemed  whiter   and   more  placid  than  usual,  and   lazier  as if it   was  relieved    of  some work by the thousands of red,  white and   blue   incandescent     lamps  which   glistened   among  the   foliage.  Monsieur   Lavigne's   orchestra    composed  of 100    or    more    performers,  gathered  from  all  parts  of    Europe,  hoard under these circumstances, and  a tall glass of golden fluid, sparkling  and very cold, drove away dull  care  in an   incredibly  short  time, and  the  thought  that   awateened    us    in   the  morning was  changed to    "home" in  the abstract. 'The music was glorious,  and the liquid gold looked rather like  beer, or ginger ale, but it was useless  to make inquiries as the waiter was a  Frenchman and couldn't speak a word  of  English.    On   the following    day,  after bqjng received by the mayor in  the mayor in the city hall, an enormous  procesion  of private    carriages  took us up the Mount, where we had  a view of the city,   and a champagne  lunch  with the mayor and aldermen.  After which we were handed over to  the fiarb'or commissioners who steamed us up and down the St. Lawrence, I  and on the Allan liner Parisian. At  night Mr. Grove, lessee of Her Majesty's theatre invited us to the play  and gave us each a souvenir programme printed especially for us, and as  It was still only the same day when  we left the theatre, the reception  committee of the Montreal Press association entertained us at the hotel  until  ebd  time.  This city is remarkable for champagne and hunchbank.s  An immense amount of self control  had to bo used the next morning to  enable us to catch the train at 8:30:  and even then one member was left  behind. However by taking a fast  train the lost one was In time to  us on our arrival at Ottawa. Here  the Western members of parliament  took us in hand, and as they had  no theatre to take us to they very  kindly arranged for a farce in the  house of commons. It was all done so  naturallly too. One member insulted the speaker and then���������pandemonium.  GWILLIM   &   SCOTT WHITE  Barristers, Solicitors, Notaries Public.

We were charmed with the  Queen city in every way, and we observed that it contains a great number of Jews who in many cases sell  second hand furniture and charms for  the watch chain. A visit to the Massey  Harris    works  filled    up    the    next  morning and after lunch we embarked  on  board  the three-storey boat  Toronto,   for   Montreal.      The   passenger  list comprised' the W.C.P.A.,    a large  number   of   brides,     a     considerable  quantum  of Masons    who    were    on  Masonic  business  bent,    and    a  few  ordinary   passengers.     We   were   informed that Mr. Bert Woods, formerly  of the Mail and Empire was on board  on his bridal tour.    The Press organized  a concert  for the evening    and  te Masons supplied most of the music.  The   weather  was  perfect  ancl   those  who didn't like, the brilliantly lighted  drawing   room   of  the    boat,    sorted  themselves  out .in  pairs, and  enjoyed  the summer air on deck in the darkest   corners.

We  say   "perhaps",  because there was   a   neavy   fog   and  the  Thousand  islands  were  invisible,  but we purchased a 25c book of views  which   we  ought  to  have  seen.

Now a plebiscite has been taken and  a majority of the voters have decided  in favor of prohibition. The vote was  not confin'ed to.any province or territory; it covered the whole country. The  hopes of the prohibitionists rose. Sir  Wilfrid was a man of his word, and  would obey ihe majority of the voting electors. A prohibitory measure  was   assured.  Now. however, Sir Wilfrid says that  he never made a pledge to introduce  a prohibitory law as the result of a  majority vote. He feels that it would  not do to "coerce" Quebec, whose  people are strongly opposed to prohibition. Quebec may "coerce" the  rest of the Dominion, but her views  must be respected. Consequently Mr.  Parmaie.' amendment was supported  by the government, every member of  the cabinet present voting for it. This  is  what the. amendment says:  "At the plebiscite of 189S. only  about 23 per cent of the registered  electors of the Dominion voted for  prohibition; in the provinces and  territories, excepting Quebec, only  27 per cent of the registered electors voted for prohibition. , These results show that there is not an active prohibition sentiment sufficiently  pronounced to justify the expectation  that a prohibition law would be successfully enforced, and therefore, in  the opinion of this house such a prohibitory law should not lie enacted  at  present."  Meantime the prohibitionists 'who  voted for Sir Wilfrid in 1890 on lhc  strength of his promises have been  beautifully fooled. They know now  what'.Sir-Wilfrid's ante-el?ction plcdse  house was picked up and entirely  destroyed, with all its contents.

The reports show the most  promising outlook yet given this year,  and predict a good crop of wheat,  while good yields of oats, barley and  hay are also looked for. At Territorial points the report show the  wheat tn be* above the average.  Around the north central sections,  west of.

At points in the  Mennonite district and on the Souris  sections, where previous reports show-  etd wheat to be only good for about  five bushels to the acre, in nearly  every ease six bushels is now looked  for, and in many cases seven and  eight bushels are predicted, showing  the good results of the recent rains.  The most pleasing feature to be noticed is that the._farmers;.'..thls year will  have no trouble over feed. The  grass is now in splendid condition at  all points and greatly improved by the  rains.

Here was an  opportunity for our funny man, or at  least for one of them, for wc- bad  several always with us, ancl ho at  once rose to the occasion. "Ah,"  said he, "there Is time to finish the  game of bowls and we will lick^_5  Spaniards afterwards." Great Drake!  Invincible Armada! How we laughed.  The Joke seemed so spontaneous, and  we cast side glances at the spectators  to see If they were admiring our wag  from the West. At length the game  ended and we strolled down to tho  wharf.

How fickle is human nature!  Only a few moments ago and the  "absolute ass" was a born  wit.  There as nothing for it but to wait  till the boat, returned. One member  of the; party who had hitherto been  silent said that when he was "out of  luck" he always consoled himself  with the thought that matters might  be worse, and that there were; many  who had harder things to hear. He  said lhat adversity brought out latent  affection, and for that reason it. was  a necessity. In order to cheer us up  he told us of a case which came under  his especial notice when he was living ln London, the city which contains the greatest splendor and thc  greatest squalor.in the world. Tt was  that of a young woman who lived  with her husband in Lambeth, somewhere in the "Noo Cut."

However we  dined at Prescott at the expense of  th-e Navigation company, and our  anger at their failing, through no  fault of their own, to carry us by  water to Montreal, was thus apeased.  Prescott is a nice little town and  contains nine-tenths of all the Mayflies of the Universe. We should like  to live at Prescott If we were a trout  or possibly a swallow.  We reached Montreal at G:30; most  of us went round the city on electric  cars, the rest of us went to the theater and saw the charming Miss Lotta  Llnthicum.

The first thing to be done as to  register our names at the Hotel Kron-  tenac and have breakfast, and then  the usual special cars were in waiting and we made*a tour of the city.  Leaving the cars we crossed on foot  Abraham's Heglhts and i-aw the miserable looking monument erected In  memory of General Wolfe. It is an  insignificant thing in itself but it  serves to remind the tourist of the  glorious 13th of September, 1759 when  two great generals were killed, both  brave men and officers of great re-  . putation, General Wolfe and the  Marquis de Montcalm. As we stood  on the heights and pictured to ourselves that terrible fight It was with  a feeling of satisfaction that, we called to mind theTact that the descendants of thos.- who fought against, each  other on that clay were .now comrades in arms In South Africa. We  shall never forget Abraham'h Heights  but we wish that the peopl.. of Quebec would have them brought, down  lower. Ths glorious 13th fades, from  your mind long .before you reach ��������� the  bottom of the endless wooden stairs  which bring you back to the hotel.

Shanghai,   July     IU.���������Mews     trout   Instead'* of   that, they     are    still  official sources was received last night   great force in the neighborhood  to the effect that the empress had on  the 30th of June resumed the reins  of government and had appointed  Yung Lu prime minister. It is said  that she sent a despatch to Nankin  by courier at the  rate of 100  miles  in  of  the latter place and are assisted by  the imperial Chinese troops with ample and  efficient artillery.  According to a special Chee Poo  despatch the fighting around Tieu  Tsin on the 3rd and 4th instants was  The  30 killed  or wounded. The Chinese had 75,000  men attacking simultaneously from  the west, north and east, and made  excellent practice with over 100 guns.  The defenders numbered 1*1,000 with  scant supplies and it was only the  presence of the newly arrived Japanese aud Russian guns that prevented disaster. One Russian company  of infantry numbering 120 had 115  killed and wounded. The German  contingent suffered heavily. By  the evening of the 4th the situation  was very critical. The allies narrowly escaped total defeat. Providentially, when things were "at their  worst a torrential rainfall compelled  the Chinese to retire. On July Gth  the rain having abated, the Chinese  renewed the attack, opening fire on  Tien Tsin with two batteries of four-  inch guns, hut' the allies, aided by  two of H.M.S. Terrible's 4.7-inch guns,  Succeeded in silencing the Chinese  artillery after eight hours of fighting.  London, July 11.���������Furious fighting  has taken place at Tien Tsin. After-  four days battling, hordes of Chinese  were driven off by a brilliant bayonet  charge by 10,U00 picked men. Japan  will land 23,000 men in China within  the next few days.

London, July 10.���������Chinese official  sources furnish another surprise this  morning in announcing that the dowager empress who had been reported  within two weeks to be dead, to have  fled, to have heen poisoned, to have  become hopelessly mad, has resumed  the reins of power, The date given  is June 30th, the name on which  the date on which the wholesale massacre of foreigners is said to have  occurred. The telegram of Sheng,  the administrator of telegraphs and  railroads to the Chinese minister at  Washington. Wu Ting Fang, saying  tnat the Imperial government was  protecting the legations, appears to  fit in with the detspatch from Shanghai of this morning, particularly with  reference to the alleged directions  given by the dowager empress relative to the protection of foreigners.  At the same time people continue to  ask if the legations are protected  why the ministers are not permitted  to communicate with the outer world.  Sheng's expressed fears that the food  and ammunition of the legations have  Deen exnaustect are counteracted by  tbe news that PrincejChing. the commander of the Manchu field force, is  revictualling them. Besides this it  is now known that in the last resort  there are available for food several  hundred ponies usually kept within  the walls of the British legation. In  the meantime according to the legation of .Japan here the Japanese by  no means share the general opinion  that .the advance on Pekin must be  indefinitely delayed. The officials  assert that the Japanese have no intention of halting at Taku or Tien  Tsin, but propose to advance on Pekin during the present week. Their  military authorities express the opinion that the 20,000 of their troops, in  addition to the international forces  already available will suffice to force  an entrance into the Chinese capital.  Emperor.Wiliam despatched the German warship Buzzard from Kiel for  China this morning while the German cruisers Geier and Seedwle have  been ordered to proceed to China as  rapidly as possible.  Tien Tsin, July 11.���������It is reported  from Chinese sources* that the foreigners at Pekin have taken possesion of one of the prince's palaces opposite and commanding the British  legation and that the native Christians have been installed there.  Washington, July 11.���������The , secretary of state has received a despatch  .���������=rrom���������air.���������Goodnow.j���������United���������atates-  consul general at Shanghai stating  that.it is given out by the governor  of Shanghai that the. legations were  . standing on July 5, and that, the outlaws were dispersing. Mr. Goodnow  adds that this statement obtains general credence.  JLiOndon, July ill.���������(3:25 a.m.)���������  With the foreigners in Pekin probably safe amidst the civil war; with  Prince Ching on their side; with the  powers ������united and their forces continually increasing, the outlook in  China is rather more hopeful than it  has been for a month past. It appears from cautious statements given  out by Taiti Sheng, in Shanghai,  that the reason the heavy guns on  the legations at Pekin were not used  is that Prince Ching, who is served  by 10,000 troops, seized all the artillery ammunition. Sheng likewise intimates that Yung Lu, commander in  ���������chief of the northern army, is associated with Prince Ching in opposing Prince Tuan'b serious designs  and dictatorial ambitions. ' Sheng,  who appears to be the sole Shanghai conduit of Pekin news, cheers the  foreign consuls by these confidential  commuications, but takes excessive  precaution to* prevent the Chinese  -from thinking him friendly to the  foreigners.  London, July 11���������(4:15 a.m.)���������No  authentic news from Pekln, is still  the'burden of the despatches from the  far east and although thc disposition  is to believe the optimistic reports  from Chinese sources, no real confidence is possible until thc legations,  if they are still in existence are permitted to comrminlcat o with their  governments.  If. as alleged,, the Boxer movement  Is losing ground- in Pelt In .'.it might  have been supposed that tbe Boxers  would have endeavored to send up  reinforcements   from  Tien   Tsin,   but  According to a Chee Foo .despatch  the fighting around Tien Tsin on July  3rd and 4th was the severest yet experienced. The British ' losses alone  are 30 killed or wounded.  Shanghai,   July   10.���������About    75,000  imperial  troops  and  Boxers  made  a  determined attack upon Tien Tsin on  July 3rd and ,4th. The fighting resulted in   the   most   severe     damage   yet  done the t>eleaguered city. The Chinese  flred  upon  the city with    100    guns  from the west.north add east and repulsed.    But    for  the  newly  arrived  Japanese   contingent    and   additional  Russian   guns   recently   arrived   from  home they would surely have gotten  inside the lines.   The defenders numbered  14,000  and the  causalties  were  heavy.     One Russian  company  alone  suffered  a loss  of 120.      About    150  shells  fell into  the    European    city,  damaging many houses.    Women and  children were sheltered in the cellars  of the public buildings and hotels. A  12-pound   gun   from   H.M.S.   Terrible  was put into  action   but  the Chinese  compelled a. withdrawal by'exploding  .two__shells-_under__.lt.=_^A^French--gun  took Its place and was likewise silenced.   A  shell   burst among the crew  manning this    gun.      The   Japanese  three   companies   who   were  engaged  in     the  fight ��������� with  a body  of ' Russians and a mounted battery, lost two  men killed and 20  wounded on July  3rd.   Several thousand men under the  command of Generals Mah and Jung  who ' recently joined  the. besiegers at  Tien  Tsin, took   part   in \the  attack.  ViceAdmiral Alexieff has arrived    at  Tien Tsin to  take command of    the  allies.    A steamer with 200  refugees  from   Tien  Tsin  arrived   this  morning and  several  steamers started for  Taku  to  take the European   women  and children who have arrived there  from Tien Tsin.    The attack on Tien  Tsin was resumed on tbe 6th and repulsed  after  eight hours  fighting.  London, July 12.���������The Chinese situation again bears a most ominous aspect.    Eighteen days  ago Sir Robert  Hart   despatched  a   message, describing the situation as desperate.    Since  then no word has come from the Europeans in Pekin beyond untrustworthy and ..tangled Chinese reports. According to the Daily Mail's Shanghai  correspondent Li Hung Chang has received   an  imperial   decree    ordering  his   immediate   departure   to   Pekin.  presumably to break the news of   the  Pekin tragedy to the  powers. To add  grimness   to  this  suggestion,  all  advices from Tien Tsin confirm the reports   of  the   perilous   condition     of  the allied forces, which  belle the optimistic   Chinese   rumors. Unless     reinforcements reach Tien Tsin speedily  another   disaster ������������������ may     be  expected.  Tien Tsin correspondents say no advance will  be made  until  September.  Russian   papers    report    that    the  Boxers   are   ravaging   Manchuria  and  have   damaged   prts   of   the   railway  and threatening Telin and Kirln. Port  rthur and New Chawg are said to be  endangered.     Russia     has    informed  the powers of her intention to despatch a large military force to Manchuria.  All sorts of stories come from  Shanghai which are impossible to  verify. It Is said that the Boxers  have murdered the chancellor of the  Pekin university and 60 members of  his family and retainers. A confidential officer of Ung Lu, disguised as a  Boxer, is reported to have crept into  ���������Tuan's tent while the prince was  sleeping, intending to stab him, but  was caught by the sentries and murdered on the spot. The head was  sent with" Tuan's compliments to  Yung  Lu, warning him   to   beware.  The French consulate at Shanghai  has reported that the Chinese prefect  in Moulk has been murdered and the  Catholic bishop, Monseigneur Gali-  ler.  The Daily Express this morning  published a despatch from Tien Tsin  dated Friday last by way of Chee Foo,  saying: "General Mas has defeated  the allied troops and reoccupied the  Chinese eastern arsenal, inflicting  great loss upon tbe defenders. The  engagement lasted six hours and was  fought with determination on both  sides."  Chee Foo. July S.���������(Via Shanghai,  July 12.)���������A courier from Sir Robert  Hart has just arrived bringing a  message dated June 25th:  " Close to good bye;    near the end."  London, July 11.���������It is strongly  rumored in the service and parliamentary clubs this afternoon that the  British government is preparing to  send 100,000 Indian troops to China in  the autumn.  The following is an extract from  the edict of Prince Tuan: "The anger  of our people knows no bounds. They  cannot be restrained. The work of  guarding the legations which before  was difficult is made impossible. It is  impossible for us to continue this protection of the legations. Let it be  represented to the powers that we  must be held blameless for the anger  of our people which grows .vith the  rising of each sun that sees more  and yet more * foreigners and ���������>_-Id_ers  coming over to run over find hiy  waste our country and slay our people.'  Tien Tsin via Shanghai, July 11.���������  Martial law now prevails. The allies  propose to ravage the city in revenge  for attacks by the Chinese. Seven  thousand of the enemy fell prior to  the battle on July 3rd, 4th and 6th,  and 3000 were killed in those attacks.  The fact that the thousands of dead  bodies are unburied adds the breath  of pestilence to the other horrors of  the siege. Another menace lies in  the fact that the food" supply of the  besieged is short. Of the civilians  here, the following have been killed:  One Englishman, one Jap and one  Frenchman. The escape of the women and children from death has  been wonderful. Every house in the  European city was held during the  bombardment. There is little hope of  saving Pekin, as the relief of the ministers and other European besieged  will take a long time. Captain ilc-  Calla says that. .50,000 men are needed  to suppress the uprising.  SOUTH AFRICAN WAR  Senekal," Orange River Colony, July  10.���������An extended reconnaisance today  resulted in the discovery that the  Boers had evacuated all their positions around Senekal. A number of  them appear to have gone towards  Ficksburg and the remainder in the  direction of Bethlehem. The British  commander expresses the opinion that  the retirement of the, Boera foreshadows the war in this section as  near  an end.  London, July 11.���������Lord Roberts yesterday telegraphed to the war .office  from    Pretoria ' aa.. follows: _    ."The  and Lieutenant Conway, severely,  and Lieutenant Boyd Rochefort, of  the Scottish'Rifles, slightly wounded.  Seven men of the, Yorkshires were  wounded. One killed and two wounded of the Imperial Yeomanry. Paget  reports that but for the accurate practice of the .Thirty-Eighth Royal Artillery and the Fourth City Imperial  batteries the casualties would have  been many more.' Ceneral Baden  Powell reached Rustenburg during the  evening of July S without opposition.  He found all quiet thero and public  confidence entirely satisfactory, thanks  to the prompt and bold grasp of the  situation taken by Major Hanbury-  Tracy. The district to the west of  this is somewhat unsettled, owing to  the small force that attacked Rus-  tenburg being still in that neighborhood. Measures are being taken to  meet this. Further information regarding the capture of Bethlehem is  now received from General Clements.  He states the country there is broken  and difficult, consequently his and  Paget's cavalry were unable to make  any wide turning movement. Clements attacked the position, while  Paget attacked another. The position assailed by Clements was gallantly captured by tlio Royal Irish, who  captured the guns of tlie Seventy-  Seventh battery of the Royal Artillery  lost at Stormberg. A full list of tho  casualties Has not yet been received.  Clements states that' they are few  considering the strength of the positions assaulted."

The enemy left  several wounded on the ground and  sent a request that they might be received in our field hospitals. I regret  to say that Captain Currle and Lieutenant Kirk, of the Imperial Light  Horse, who were reported wounded In  my telegram of yesterday, were both  killed.

Pool, president  and manager. F. W. Godsal, vice-  president. A. II. Holdich, secretary,  and G. S. McC:u*ter, solicitor, were all  reappointed. The liuancial report for  the past year was very satisfactory.  So far a sum of .$:-iO,()C0O has been  expended, of which $23,570 has been  pat into actual development work on  tbe Nettie L, comprising about 1,400  feet of tunneling, drifting and shafts.  Tbe balance has been expended in  buildings, steel rails, cars, trail building, etc. There has been more actual  work done for the money spent than  any other company in the province can  show.  Great satisfaction is felt over tlie  new strike, which adds several  hundred thoosand'dollars to the assets  of the company. Sixty tens of the  richest ore ever taken out of t.he mine  is now at Thomson's Landing and will  be shipped this week. There is some  $10,000 worth of ore at the Nettie L  awaiting better shipping facilities.  The mine is now in a position to turn  out ten tons a day. Sloping will  continue all summer and the ore will  be sacked up and shipped as soon ns  snow is available for rawhiding.  Owing to the large amount of development done, on the Nettie L and the  fact Lhat thc mine now ranks as a  regular producer and shipper and will  probably place the company on 11  monthly dividend paying basis next  winter, it was dpcided to raise Uie  price of treasury stock from 25c. to 50c",  THOMSON'S   LANDING   NOTES  the  Large  Consignment  Just Arrived  INCLUDING  Carriage Sponges  25c to T5C  Wool Sponges, 10c to 75c  Mediterranean Sponges  10c to $1.50  Manruka Sponges  $1.50. to $5.00  DRUGSTORE  Geo.

The Landing enjoyed quite a treat  on J nly Sid, as the majority of the  band boys of Revelstoke got herefrom  Trout Lake too late to catch tho outgoing boat and hnil to stay over; so  they employed their time in giving ns  some very good music, and to the  surprise of all they marched up the  little hill to the residence of H. Needham and wife and gave them a very  enjoyable serenade which lasted an  hour or more. Mr. Needham kept  time to their music'by picking strawberries and then treated each and all  to a good dish of the fruit, while Mrs.  Needham pinned a hunch of flowers  on the lappel of the boy's coats and  prepared a handsome bouquet for.each  of the Revelstoke ladies.
