My dear Tom,���������At last   our   excile-  nient begin-, wo, thnt is 21X1 of us with  some unlives and paek horses   are   Lu  land tonight or tomorrow morning at  the mouth of a   small   river  oil   the  north   part   cf    Zululand,   and     our  mission, as far as we can Mud out, is to  go  through   Zulu   and   Swaziland  to  where the Delagoa Bay  railway  runs  into the Transvaal, blow  up a couple  of bridges on  the  line and get   baek  again, we are hardly likely to be able  lo do this without, opposition, but we  mean to do it if possible and  we   are  allowed to.    It will be a grand way to  stop the Delagoa Bay  traffic to  Pretoria aiul prevent old  Krugei-'s 'escape  n nd I hope its true.    There  is   a   war  ship here to show us where to land for  nobody over landed here  before, and I  suppose the horses will have to swim  ashore.   The 200 men who aVe in  this  business are all "B"' squad iron.   They  made up the number to 200 by   transferring 20 men from  "A" and "C".    I  was amongst 1 he latter and am in luck.  Others   transferred   are   Jones    and  Htillingfelt of  Vernon,  and  Johnston  of Kamloops.   These three with  myself make up a section, all of us  were  a. great deal  together  at  Ottawa.   I  bated leaving Skene and the others in  "C", but t believe I am in luck,    Iu tin  awful hurry or would'write more.  Yours,  Haruy.  Once more we have, been disappointed.

Recent events in China have placed  (he Chinese population of this continent in a very awkward, it may  become even dangerous po-iliou.  Always an object of popular illwill. it  is quite possible thai in some of the  cities in the States, lhe authorities  may find it impossible to prevent, a  genet al attack ou these people,  particularly if .the suiiuises -and  rumors of-lhu fate of the legation-; in  Pekin, turn out to be true in all their  terrible details. In thi-= place t.he te-  port, emanating it is said from one of  their own - storekeepers. that .lhe  Chinese were subscribinc lo a fund  for the maintenance of lhe Boxer*,  hart led to the discharge of some of  them as servants and should certainly,  if it is true, lead to a universal boycott of them in any capacity.

The'  posts held by  ihe Itish   Fusiliers   and"  the Canadian mounted infantry under  Lieut.-Colonel   Aldcrson    were    most  gallantly defended.

Prior" laid  the grievance of British Columbia  before lhe government. : The total  expenditure of Dominion money in lhe  piovince for 1S0S OS was ijn.iSO.El as  against a total revenue derived by the  Federal government from British  Columbian sources of y8,lSL02.. In  no part of Canada would the material  resources of the country moie easily  justify a'laige expenditure nor is  there any part in which expenditme  brings quicker or more prompt teturns  in the shape of increased revenue.  But in spite of these considerations  theie is not the slightest interest taken  in the development of the province by  the piesent administration at Ottawa,  our inteiests are neglected and the  taxes we pay through the cu-tonis.  Wliich reach the enormous .total of  82,113,927 are taken and squandered  in unnecessary public works, whose  only conceivable object is to make  this or thai minister solid in Quebec,*  or New Brunswick. Aud Col. Pi inr  is lhe only one of out* six members,  who has had the courage to enter a  protest against this outrageous tieat-  ment of the province.

'  British* Ciilunihi-i is lhe chief sufferer fiom tho invasion of Oriental  cheap labor, to which the Federal  government compels her to submit.  Yet out of $100,000 collected in '03 -98  from the Chinese head, tax the p:o-  vir.ee only get back 25 per cent. Our  ���������population- l-ias~::iore~thah do ti hied  itself since the census of 1891 but our  annual subsidy fiom the Dominion is  still based' on the figures of that  census. Our fisheries contributed in  the year in question SIo.SOl to the  Dominion revenue and the Dominion  expenditme in aid of this heavily  taxed local industry was only Sl'J.000.  British Columbia is being systematically lobbed for lhe benefit ofthe  constituents of Messrs. Tarte and  Blaiu. Instead of being helped and  fostered, which as a newly developed  province of such promise it ought to  be, it is simply being neglected and  plundered. Theie must bu a very  distinct understanding about this  matter at the coming election.  TROOPS TO CROSS CANADA-���������  C. P. R.

Mr.  Preston  is  speaking  .  as  follows:  ..''There   is  no  place  on  the   globe  where the Boers would be-more welcomed   and * in 'better,   circumstances  than   in   Canada, and   1   have, therefore,    already placed this idea before  :      the   Parliamentary   emigration   com-  * mittee,  being convinced: that thereby I  practical   results    ;are '���������'  to   ...he   won. |  There is  no danger to    transfer   by  ; this  at the same time1 Boer  ill  will  and  hate from South Africa    to  our  .North American colony, for    our former  enemies  would .meet  in  Canada  ���������ta���������_-_-W.it*D_a_go_v.sr.nment:of^the_most;.agree-.  able  circumstances.     The   invitations  ���������'... made  to  them hy  the. United  States  cool, or possibly nn overwarm reception from tho great mass of the people of Canada who are actuated    by  loyalty   to   the  British   crown,    who  have  shed   their blood    in    Britain's  battles  and  who  cannot   forget that  their  brothers  have   lost   their   lives  at   the   hands   of  these    very    men  whom Mr.  Preston    is    laboring    to  bring amongst us.   Nor Is   there any  truth   in   his   suggestion   that  Boer  ill-will   and hatred of England will   be  conquered   when   our     enemies     are  brought   under   the     government     of  which  Mr.  Preston   has    ever    been  such a staunch  supporter  and winch  he describes as a government of the  greatest possible liberality.   Thc Canadian government is no more liberal  than thc British government is in the  new  Dominion    o������     Sounth    Africa,  under which the. Boers refuse to live.  In the second place apart from its  personal respect, the proposal is altogether   objectionable.      We.   have   at  present in the Canadian North West  enough   and   more   than   enough   foreign matter to be assimilated,    it we  are   to   preserve    a    preponderating  British  tone,    it  is    unnecessary    to  again enumerate in detail the thousands of ignorant foreigners who have  been thrust   upon   us   by   a    government   whose    vigorous     immigration  policy seems to bo "Quantity without  any regard to quality."    Our country  is too good and the lives of our people are too valuable that either should  be   wasted   in   carrying     out   experiments, the  success   of  which   is    extremely' doubtful.      We   will   gladly  welcome any British subject or    any  citizen of the United States   who de-,  sires* to make his home amongst us,  and for that matter people from other  countries who have shewn an intelligent desire to become good Canadian  citizens, but   we : must   certainly   object to any scheme which involves the  taking up of our fertile lands by   a  people  with whom  we have nothing and; all other  in common and against whom we are  bouse,  actuated   by : justifiable    feelings     of  animosity.   It is satisfactory to know  that   Mr.   Prestons   proposal     is   not  likely  to succeed  at the  other    end,  for which the Boer themselves are en  titled to some credit.  ing pamphlet of 60 pages, carefully  compiled and containing complete information.

"The ciphers of the last annual report about the immigration polities of  the present government are giving a  superior idea of the latest progress  in Canada. Of 50.000 emigrants there  were coming over-'12,000* from the  United States, which is the test argu-  ment I can refer to.  "We   desire   to    have     realized   a  country  and   colonial    scheme  for  a  sound   emigration     on   an   extended  base,   and they are not only the Boers  whom  we  may  attract, but there    Is  also sufficient  room  left for the surplus  of    agricultural    population     of  Europe.    If  we   would   succeed in inducing  a   great   number   to  come   to  Canada,    this  would    be   one  of  the  motives to abolish the hostile feeling  between the two white races  quicker  and with greater effect. I even believe  that  hardly   any  other  scheme  could  promise   a  better  result."  Mr. Preston has already departed  from oudon for Belgium, with the  intention to look out there for some  furthering for his project of the  large Boer trek for Canada. Perhaps he will also explain his desires  to thc Transvaal ambassador.

It is no exaggeration to say that  there are several statements in Mr.  Preston's interview wliich are not  borne out by thc facts.  In the first place, it is hardly  fair  to say that  there is no  place  glebe where tho Rocrs would be more  welcomed   than   in   Canada  are   samewhat   at a loss   to  where Mr. Preston  gets Ii Ih  fcr tuch a sia-.em._nl.  say that apart  'rem  The  bubonic plague  is still virulent  in Australia.

Tbe strangest thing in  the Paris exposition  Midway is  the  "upside:down  house,"  said  a guest at    one of    the  Winnipeg hotels, who has just returned  after  a  visit to the  other  side   of  the pond.     'Nobody but a Frenchman  would  over   have   thought   of  such   a  thing.      It    is  a    big,   old  fashioned,  three-storey  manor house,  apparently  resting on    its gables, with the foundation   eight   feet   in   the   air.       One  goes    in    through a    dormer   window  through the attic and finds everything  upside  down.     Under    foot are what  appear   to  be    the    ceilings,  spouting  chandeliers      like      giant     toadstools  and   overhead  are  chairs   and   tables  ordinary furniture  of a  miraculously   clinging   to*   the  reversed floors.   There are even books  and  small  articles scattered  about on  the carpets, and sticking to them as if  by magic, and on    some of the tables  lamps are burning top  down.  "Everything about  the    place    contributes to one of the most bewildering  illusions: imaginable,   but    the    really'  amazing featureof  the house    is  the  view through the'windows. They command  a 'considerable  expanse of    the  exposition  grounds, and,  incredible ,as  it   may  seem,   everything     is    upside  down. One sees all the familiar buildings standing on their  heads,  throngs  of reversed people walking to and fro,  and the sky yawning where the earth  ought  to'be.      The  effect is  indesrib-  tlbly  startling.      1  puzzled   over  these  | windows for a long time, but I finally  discovered  their  secret.      The  illusion  is produced by means ot  two mirrors,  both   set iu  angles   in   die  ciisins   and  one     reflecting   the     other.      By   that  means    the  outside    scene    is   turned  about topsy turvey ami cast back into  the  room  with  all  the  realism  of  the  I open  air   view,   .   Visitors   arc  not   allowed   to go very close    to the    windows   for  fear,  as the  attendants say,  that they will  'fall  into the sky.'      A  man should   be  perfectly sober before  he inspects the''upside-down house.'"  next bestrode  by the Alberta Kid; he was full of a  sense ot hia own importance and gave  a fine exhibition of what a peaceable  mule should not bo for a while. The  ground was soft and spongy, however, and after a time It became tired  and the pure cussedness o������ mule  nature asserted itself for he simply  balked  and refused to  go.  A novel exhibition was the riding of  a black muley steer by Lee Marshall.  This animal bad never been ridden  before, but wished II. understood that  ho was not to be outdone by any  mere ei_uinc and bucked and cavorted  around outrageously. Texas Leo  could not be shaken off, however, and  rodo the steer to a standstill.  Commanche Tom, a little roan Montana pony, made good his name to the  title of "outlaw." Not content with  bucking and acting mean, he tried to  climb up amongst the spectators nnd  being foiled in that- damaged some of  thc permanent property of the rink by  breaking down the fence enclosing the  arena.  A exciting cowboy race was the  next event on the programme. Mr.  Smalley, of Winnipeg, on an Appaloo-  chie pony, with Mr. Houghton, Texas  Lee Marshall and the Alberta Kid  participated in this. The contestants  started from the centre, of the rink  and rode in the form of a figure eight  around two barrels placed upright at  each end of the rlnk.V, The riders  displayed great skill in turning their  horses. The race was won by the  Alberta Kid.  .The entertainment closed with another buck''*jumping exhibition by the  Blackfoot. '"Indian outlaw.

Then the lover sighed quite, often,  Each successive sigh some deeper  Than its  airy predecessor,  And  replied':      "Alas,   I  cannot!  For I am  a member of the  "5f.  M.

Towards  sunrise  it was evident  ! that the ammunition of the allies was  running out and at 7 o'clock,   as the  foreigners in Pekin were murdered on  July 6th.  Shanghai, July 16.���������The first details of the massacre of the foreign  ministers at Pekin came last night.  After being repeatedly'i-pulsed by  the foreigners, Prince Tuan made a  night attack on July Cth, in three  columns, with artillery, and finally  battered down the walls.  The foreigners, when defeat was  certain, killed all the women and  children, so they might not meet a  worse fate at the hands of the  fiendish  Boxe.rs.  They had first formed a hollow  square with the women and children  in the centre and tried to fight their  way out of the gates. It was impossible. Those of the guard who were  not cut down were roasted to death  in the building, which was burned by  the Chinese.  After finishing the butchery of the  foreigners the Boxers and imperial  troops set upon the native Christians  and all were put to death after being  subject to the most horrible torture.  An official telegraph was received  last night from the governor of Shang  Long, stating that a breach was  made in the wall and after a gallant  defence and the ammunition had  given out, all the foreigners ware  killed. -5--  CHINESE   DOUBLE   DEALING  London. July 16.���������The Shanghai  correspondent of one of the dailies  says: "I can positively assert that  the Chinese officials had the dreadful news from Pekin a week ago' and  that Sheng knew all the foreigners  in Pekin were dead when he asked j  the American consul to cable Washington proposing to deliver the foreigners in safety at Tien Tsin on  condition that the powers would suspend their operations In North Pekln.  The correspondent adds certain details of affairs at Pekin after June 25.  According to his story members of  the legation made daily sorties, sometimes by night and succeeded in  compelling the Chinese, to retreat  from the vicinity.  These   reverses   had   a dlshearten-  ���������i_'g^e_reet_upon__the Chinese and .there  soon began to open signs of disaffection followed by desertions to  Prince Ching's army which ws en-  devoring to operate with the besieged.  Ultimately Prince Tuan decided to  make a night attack ia three power-  ; ful columns.  At 6 o'clock,in the evening of.July  6th, says' the correspondent,., fire was  opened-with artillery .upon the British legation where the foreigners  were. For two hours the walls were  battered with Bbot and shell and huge  breaches were made in them. Then a  general advance was ordered and thc  Chinese infantry, volleying constantly, moved towards the gaps. The fire  of the defenders, however, was so  "accurate and steady that hordes of  Chinese soldiers and Boxers broke and  fled In confusion; leaving large numbers of dead and wounded around tho  legation.  They could not be rallied until they  were out of rifle range ot the foreign-  : ers. Then Prince Tuan, making ��������� a  desperate .appeal, Induced them to  stand and return to' the attack. Ar-  tilery fire, was then resumed and at  the middle watch a second attack was*  .attempted.  Unfortunately many of the Chinese troops deserted to Prince Tuan. ���������  Prince Ching fell and was supposed  to have; been killed but a. search for  his body was unsuccessful. It is now  believed that he was only wounded  and carried off and secreted by his  faithful  retainers.  A Brave Old General  .General Wang Wen Shoai, although  grey haired and 70 years of age, valiantly  led  hia  troops in  person.,   He  was killed and his force  outnumbered and routed.  advance of the .Chinese force failed  to draw a response, a rush was determined '��������� upon.  Thus standing together, as the sun  rose, the little remaining band, all  Europeans, met death stubbornly. It  was a desperate hand to hand cos-  flict. The Chinese lost heavily but  as one man fell others advanced, and  finally, overcome by overwhelming  odds, every one-of the Europeans remaining standing was put to the  sword in the most atrocious manner.  The allies are losing hundreds of  men at Tien Tsin.  St. Petersburg, July 14.���������The czar  has received with great emotion the  dreadful particulars of the tragic catastrophe at Pekin. Tears coursed  down his majesty's cheeks as he  read1 the cablegram from Admiral  Aliexieff, at Port Arthur confirmed  the horrible details of the assassina-  ton of M. de Glers which merely in  tho form of rumor had already reached Russia.-  The admiral declares that the Russian envoy was dragge.d through the  streets by the Boxers, insulted, beaten and tortured, and then thrown in  a great kettle and boiled to death.  Then the remains were thrown to  the dogs. While M. de Giers was  being disposed of the fanatical mob  danced around the caldron. Mme.  de Giers, Admiral Aliexieff's advices  declare, suffered a fate worse than  death and was beaten and tortured  with sharp sticks until life was extinct. The legation officials are said  to have been tortured fiendishly, until  death ended their sufferings. M. de  Giers and his legation officials resisted desperately and his brave body  guards killed many of the attacking  mob. . In the midst .of his tortures  the envoy is said* heroically ,to have  proclaimed his faith in Christianity,'  encouraged by his wife,, who shared  his martyrdom.

It is stated possibly from Canton that Li Hung  Chang will remain there until the  allied forces have defeated Prince  Tuan's forces, and will then go north  to lend his political aid in arranging  the terms of peace, co-operating with  Prince Ching, Yung Lu. and the other  pro-foreign vlce-roys. For the present Li Hung Chang considers that he  can best control and direct the viceroys Canton, and also keep In check  the turbulent province of Kwang  Tung. All the foreigners and missionaries have evacuated Wen Chu  and havo arrived at Ning Po. Large  bodies of Boxers appeared at Wen  Chu and threatened to exterminate the  foreigners and Christians. They also  distributed banners, badges and in-  flamatory  anti-foreign appeals.  The Tien Tsen corespondent of the  ISxpress telegraphing under date of  July 9th, asserts that the Chinese are  daily driving in tho allies. They have  mounted, says the correspondent, 12  fresh guns In advantageous positions,  with which they are sweeping the  streets of the foreign settlement, the  Incessant fire rendering position after  position  quito .untenable.  The Daily Mail's St. Petersburg correspondent says that In the last six  hours' battle outside of Tien Tsen the  Cossacks captured six Krupp guns  and killed a number of fleeing Boxens.

Acting on this    edict.  Pretoria, July 12.���������Colonel Mahon  reinforced by General French's brigade yesterday took all the positions  held by the Boers In the neighborhood of Reitfontein. A number of  Boers were killed. The British loss  was trifling.  Details are now at hand regarding  the disaster to the Lincolnshire regiment on Wednesday. It appears that  five companies were ordered to proceed on Tuesday and hold the pass  through Magalsburg in the neighborhood of Daspoort Fort. They arrived  in the afternoon at the pass, three  companies with two guns took,up  position and camped for the  leaving two companies on a il  south of the pass. The eastern hill  was rugged, rocky and inaccessible,  but farther east apparently approachable from the main ridge. At daybreak yesterday the Boers appeared  on the eastern side of the kopje ancl  opened a heavy fire. Confusion ensued. The colonel ordered thc mon  to take up a position on the kopje  west of the gap. From this point  a hot fire was kept up during the entire day. Two guns under the escort  of the Scots Greys, placed in advance  of the main body were captured  after a stout resistance. Nearly every  man aws killed qr wounded. A Maxim  gun was brought into action early  in the day.  The fire was too hot and themen  were forced to retire: ��������� A sergeant,  aided by seven men. saved the guns.  There was a continuous fire all along  the line. The Lincolnshire regiment  replying vigorously.  About three o'clock In the afternoon the Boers appeared on the left  of the position occupied by the British. / An officer an* 15 men attempted  to charge them and 14 were killed  or wounded as a result. Three companies were practically surrounded,  but they kept up a steady fire unwaveringly until towards nightfall,  when their ammunition gave out.  The latest arrival from the scene  states that at the time of his escape  the men were taking up a good position under cover and with fixed bayonets were awaiting the approach of  the Boers. It is understood upon  good authority that the Boers have  employed armed natives.. Two of the  natives leaped from cover when a  small party from the Lincolnshire regi  ment stepped up and demanded their  surrender. A soldier stepped forward  and shot, both of the natives dead.  One officer, -who succeeded in making  his escape had an encounter with an  armed native. It is feared that the  losses of the British were numerous.  About* 30 of the British soldiers straggled' back to camp today. According  to al;accounts a great force is being  assembled to prevent the further progress ot the Boers.

THE TRIUNE GROUP  \nd Other Lardeau Properties���������The  Season's Progress-A Bright Prospect  for.Mining; Activity���������Accident in the  American Basin.  ., (From Our Own Correspondent)  TiiouT Lakh, .Inly 10���������I am pleased  to state another property in this well  known district i.s uipidly coming to  the front, namely, the Triune group of  claims, situated half mile north west  of tbe Silver Cup. The group has been  leased 10' some enterprising miners  who are turning ont some magnificent  ore. The vein has two feet of shipping  01 e, comprising black sulphites, carbonates and galena, the whole of.  which runs exceedingly rich. Two  tonsil day are put into sacks which  will be packed to the wagon road. A  trail has been cut by the lessees from  the claims to the wagon road. This  rich Iind makes the adj lining claim  owners anxious to find out what is on  their claims, and lots of work will be  carried out in this section to demonstrate what does really exist there.  Two prospectors at work near the  Lake, half a mile from Trout Lake  Cily have discovered a massive ledge  well  interspersed   withg galena.   This  others out. who wc hope will  be successful in finding lots of good ore.  The two standbys Nettie L and  Silver Cup never looked better.  The Old Gold aud Primrose properties are improving with development.  Tbe management is satisfied, the  future is assured, and they deserve,  all the success they get for they are  stayers and have spent n good deal of  money in development work.  Two other companies will be operating on tbe North Fork shortly on  well known veins with considerable  ore on the surface.  Work on the Monitor claim, situated near Circle City, is suspended pin  tcm, bnt work is likely to be resumed  at .'in emly date.  The Vii'giiia group, Lucky Jim group  and other claims 011 the rich ore belt  are being operated vigorously. Assays  fi(>m these properties go very high  in gold.  Claims on Canyon creek are vigorously worked by their owners and  splendid ore samples are " brought  down.   , .  ��������� Tenderfoot Creek is also alive with  prospectors and owners, at work on  their claims. .  Lade creek is coming in for a fair  share of atU'tition. A good deal of  work will be done on two of these  claims shortly. .   .  Tbe outlook as to mines and mining  is bright, hut the key of the situation  from a successful camp point, of view  is. will the railway he completed and  operating between the two lakes  (Kooten.iv and Trout Lake) this year.  I.vc-rvotie is hopeful it will be running  lii-fore the snow Hies   and   I   trust  it  "'">������������������ , .,      .  An accident occurred on Monday  last tn a prospector named Copp, who  was at work in lhe American basin on  one of bis claims, By some means he  cut his foot badly wilh an axe; one of  his comrades came down for Dr.  Wilson, who immediately started out  to attend the case. The doctor 1ms  returned and a party of men has  been sent out to bring him into Trout  Lake. We hope Mr. Copp will soon  pull through.  The gasoline lauuch. which was  expected to lie running on the lake  some wepks since, is still tied up to the  wharf in bad repair. This is a pity as  during-the-l!ast_n\onlh_tbeJake__traffl(*_  has been considerable and she could  have made good money.  Thos. Taylor, M.P.P.. arrived in  Trout Lake yesterday.

As the name itid-  cates, these inseccs are naturally riifjht  feeders, hut it would suem that  appearing in the miniher they are,  they do not remain constant to the  habit. For <j;eneral information and  until fin ther data is obtainable, Jlr.  Anilei-Min hns issued the following  direction :  of a teaspoonI'ul to *t pailful  of  water,  is recommended.     Another   pl-in. anil  one whicli 1   would  recommend,  is  to  use poisoned bran, whicli is put out iu  little heaps through   the   fields.    One  pound nt   fa ri s Gree 11 to 50  pounds  oT  bran, thoroughly mixed dry. and then  moisteii'id with   water,   just   a   lilt.le  sweetened  witli  sugar.    Tliis  mixture  is exceedingly attractive to cut worms,  being preferred to plants.   It will take  about ten pounds t.o an  acre   of   potatoes   as   ordinarly   planted.    A   good  plan lo prevent  egg-laying  is   to   put  potash in tlie form   of   kainit   on   the  soil.    The insects do not  like   this   on  account of 1 he chloride it contains and  nianv of them   will   lie   killed, whilst  most others  will bu  driven   off.
