This expectat-ion lias arrived from the  results of the recent visit of llie Boer  delegates to the States. In other  words, in order to capture the pt-u-  Boer vole the Democratic leaders have  deliberately induced the Boers to  colli inne a perfectly useless expenditure of human lives in lhe hope of the  fulfillment of u pledge which Bryan  and his lieutenants must know perfectly well that Ihey could never carry  out. One. may feel quite confident  Hint iu the extremely impiohalile  event of Bryan heing elected president,  the Boris would not have any lietfer  chance of intervention on the part of  the Slates than they have at present.  Intervention would mean war. and the  recent difficulty wilh n fifth rate  European power like Spain has opened  the eyes of the States to the fact that  they were not quite as well prepared  to ch.-'llenge the Empire to hai tie nt  any given moment,, as they imagined.  Bryan must know this perfectly well,  and yet with inhuman wickedness he  is deluding this ignorant people and  its half crazy leaders into prolonging  a useless struggle ou the hope of help  that will never In." afforded to them.  This is the first lot wc have  had direct from tho plantation and it is much superior  to the o o'clock we have hud  before.

Some sections in the west are recognizing the probability mid acting upon  it. In Alberta, they have already  selected the Conservative candidate in  the person of Mr. Bennett, of Calgary,  who is likely to make matters very  warm for even soch a. strong man as  the present member, Frank Oliver.  In British Columbia so far nothing  lias been done. In l_nutenay, there is  a good deal of uncertainty prevailing,  which rather paralyzes action.

The jSTew* York World publishes a  statement by Sheridan P. Heed, ex-  consul at Tien Tsin, in which  he says:  "When the allied force.- reach Pekin,  I think tliey may find I tie capital  deserted, the court and the envoys  gone. It would be impossible for  China to furnish guards stifliciently  strong to bring the ministers safely  through the boxer hordes that are  massed, together with Chinese troops,  between Pekin and Tien Tsin. It is  likely that tho empress and possibly  the emperor, have Bed with their court  under escort of _\I.tiichu banner men  from Pekin to Sinanfu, taking >vith  them the ministers at least as hostages  and   leaving   the   other foreigners  iii  Pekin ton horrible fate.  " If the ministers are being held ns?  hostages, and are being leiuoved to  the letnole city of Sinai'ii, a place mo.-t,  difficult to reach, it, i.- natural lhat the  Chinese should put forth all .their  finesse, and  cunning   lo   conceal   ibis \  The Relief Force Makes a  Move  froniT  Tien Tsin  j    London,  Aug. __���������The allies began.  j t.he advance from Tien Tsin this morning, announces an agency bulletin  dated at .Shanghai at 11.10 a.m. today..  j It is assumed that the  United  Slates,.

Baden-Powell was once tlay  ing at.a country house where a conjurer was expected to amuse an evening party. At the appointed time the  conjurer had not appeared, and the  hostess appealed in despair to Baden-  Powell to "do a turn" to fill up the  gap. The ever-resourceful B.-P.  stepped modestly onto the platform,  and announced that he would try and  amuse the audience with a little amateur   conjuring  pending  the   arrival  A young woman, of refined appearance and modish attire attended a  matinee during thc last week at one  of the theatres that still remain open  and after the performance was concluded left the theatre, forgetting Iier  pocketbook, which was on the seat  that she had occupied, says the New  York Times. .     .

Having at last got the right sort of  n tray, lie placed the fragments of tho  hat upon it, covered them with a silk  handkerchief, held up the tray before  thc audience. "Ladies and gentlemen," he said, "you have seen me  cut up the hat, and you have no doubt  that the piec.es are under this handkerchief. The next part of the performance will be to reproduce the  hat, and hand it uninjured .to the  owner. But as the real conjurer has  now come.

UNTIL   NOVEMBER  WANT OF CONFIDENCE  Even the friends of the Liberal  ���������government outside as well as in  parliament have found it necessary to  mark their disapprobation of the  manner in whicli .the business of the  country  is  being  conducted.  Ten  Liberals    voted    against    the  ������������������jia'rtrion-Uie--etner__ency-rations-scan-  dal, and   several   Liberal   newspapers  of   the   better   class     have   rebuked  the   administration   for   various     departures  from good   and honest government.     Amongst  the  latter   are  ���������such papers as the Kingston Whig, the  Arthur Enterprise, the Montreal Witness  and  the    Huntingdon    Gleaner.  The  latter  is  a   Liberal    journal   of  the old school which cannot be made  to  boom  everything  done  at  Ottawa  without  regard   to  truth  and   justice.  The Gleaner says:  " After spending five mouths In  leisurely fashion, business is being  hurried at Ottawa, with a view to  prorogation on Saturday. The proposed subsidies to railways seem to  have been Introduced of purpose at  the last moment, when they cannot  ���������possibly be considered In the way  they ought to be.  "A number of the subsidies go to  purely local enterprises. short  branches between towns or between,  mines and shipping points. Those  who hoped against hope that the  government would turn over a new  leaf, and, shaking off the malign  Influence of railway jobbers, give no  more money to railways, have been  sadly disappointed by these resolutions.  "The total appropriations of the  session amount to the unprecedented  sum of s'utyfive and a half million  dollars.  "The government contends the  country can easily bear that outlay  that the income is increasing with a  liright prospect for the future.  Even the surprising revenue of the  past twelve months cannot cover  tlie appropriations made, and the  taxpayers have the prospect before  them of a large increase in the public debt."  A  government   that    has     not   the  .-confidence, of   the   newsapers   of   its  own party cannot have the confidence  of   the   majority  of   the    people    of  Canada.

This action followed directly after the most despei-are battle of  the entire revolution in which the  losses on each side were very heavy.  Owing it is believed to some mis-  ucderstamling on the terms ot the armistice brought about by the Americans, the English and tbe French  consuls the insurgents suddenly renewed their attacks upon the suburbs  of Panama*. The fighting lasted 11  hours. The rebel troops made charge  after charge upon the trenches ot the  government troops, pushing forward  with a recklessness approaching near  to madness. These desperate assaults were kept up all night long a.nd  "-\vere~me_~ wit'n-���������eiiliaiiy���������brav-;���������r-esist--  ���������ance by the regulars. In one of the  trenches, which was defended by a detachment composed entirely of young  men from this city, nearly every one  of ihe defenders was either killed or  badly wounded.

When we speak of lhe  army of  the  discontented    we    generally  rerer    to  the    visionaries who want to turn  the  earth upside down and establish a now  order on lhe ruins of tho old civilization.       But   there     is     another   army  larger,     richer  and more    interesting^  than  any  band   ot radical  reformers,,  an   army  composed  of  the  legions  of  tlie    summer     excursionists,    summer  travelers     and     th'e     frequenters   of  summer restarts.     It sends out u. few  scouts and companies just as soon as  spring   begins     to   put     a    touch     of  laziness in   the  atmosphere,   ancl  then  day  by day,  week by  week,   its  size  grows until in Aug.   it reaches its climax.     A half    century ago its parade  grounds  and  battlefields  on  this  continent  scarcely  exceeded    a hundred.  Today  they  are nearer    one   hundred  thousand, and the   section or   district  with  a hill  or a vale,   or a clump  ot  trees  thai  does   nol   have  either  "delightful summer    board"    or    scenery  that entitles it to bo called the Switzerland  of  America is simply  lagging  behind the.times and missing* precious  opportunities.       Perhaps  the  Emperor  Augustus, when he' stole a day    from  February nnd added it to August and  .-.uitneil   the   month   in   his   own   honor,  foresaw  the part it was to play thousands of years later.  One of thc most contented men in  history was out* old friend Diogenes.  "A tub was large enough for Diogenes,  but a world was loo little for Alexander." On one historic day Alexander  called on Diogenes and asked him  what   he   could   do   for  him. "Only  stand a little out of my sunshine,"  wns the reply. The summer boarder  has comfort and luxuries beyond anything which either Diogenes or Alexander ever knew, hut he is as discontented as both of them put together.

I'I  1  Assassinated  Chinese Situation Worse and Worse  Thousands of People are Being  Massacred  THE ALLIED FORCES NOW NUMBER SEVENTY THOUSAND  London, July 27.���������While tho latest of the massacre at Pekin. The sug-  impression derived from the array or , gestion being that the Chinese will  conflicting telegrams from the far east  claim  that the ministers    left Pekin  is that a portion of the foreign colony  at Pekin may havo escaped slaughter  until, a recent date, the general concensus of the best Informed opinion  of Europe seems to continue to favor  the acceptance of the worst and  prompt action thereon, the contention  being that the only possibility of de-  fir.llely ascertaining the truth is by  the ailied commanders enquiring at  Pekln.  Judging from the news from Tien  Tsin, however. recording divisions  among the admirals thero the prospects for a speedy advance seem to  be endangered unless the governments speedily agree upon a supreme  leader.  Telegrams from Shanghai report  that Li Hung Chang has taken up his  abode at the arsenal as a measure of  precaution. It is not stated whether  he feared an attack by the Chinese or  attempts of the powers to curtail his  liberty.  Foreign consuls at Shanghai have  informed  thc    viceroy  that unless he  under a strong escort but were ambushed and massacred by the Boxers  en route to Tien Tsin. However,  although it Is still believed a* massacre of the foreign colony at Pekin  has occurred, the disposition now is  to think that tho ministers were  somehow rescued from a tragic fate.  In missionary circles at Shanghai,  according to a despatch received  here today, it has been learned that  all the missionaries at Paeting, in  the province of Hochlll have been  murdered. All the peoplo of the  mission at Aloy, province of Fokein,  are reported well.  Simultaneously comes a cable despatch to the Dally Mail from Shanghai announcing that a letter has bien  received from Sir Claude Macdon'Id,  the British minister to China, under  date of Pekin, July G, saying that  the legations were under constant  fire and that they were still standing but that lhe foreigners were receiving no assistance from the  authorities,   owing   to   the   cowardice  obtains definite despatches from j of the Chinese Sir Claude wrote that  Tekin within five days they would , it was hoped the legations would be  conclude the ministers had been nuir- able to hold out for a fortnight, but  tiered and act accordingly.

Natives everywhere  wore hostile. Thc rabble attacked  the refugees, beat them, and tore  clothes from their backs. The ladies  suffered cruel indignities. The despatch continues: "Canton remains  comparatively quiet. The natives,  however, are beginning to fear that  reinforcements arriving at Hong Kong  intend to attack the Bogue forts and  occupy  the  city."  The military department has asked  the i colonial secretary at Hong Kong  for assurances that Great Britain does  not intend to take Canton.  A despach from Yokohama states  that the Japanese division will all be  landed at Taku by July 31st, and will  reach Tien Tsin on August 3rd.  London, July 27.���������"With the report  that the allies will begin the advance  upon Pekin shortly, and in view of  Admiral Seymour's visit of inspection  to Yang Tsi Kiang the feelling is that  no great time will elapse before matters assume a more definite shape.  There is an unconfirmed rumor that  60 Protestant and" Catholic missionaries have been massacred in Ki  Yuan Fu and the vicinity.  The Shanghai correspondent of the  Daily Mail describing the massacre at  Mountain says: "The bishop had  armed 200 converts to defend the cathedral" and a body of Chinese troops  had been sent to defend the convents,  but the soldiers were in league with  the Boxers. "While the Christians were  holding a service, believing themselves safe under the protection of the  troops, the signal was given and the  soldiers and Boxers surrounded and  set fire to the church, putting the escaping worshippers to the sword. The  bishop was captured and taken to the  viceroys, Yamen, where he was diabolically tortured and decapitated.  His' head hangs in Iront of the  Yamen's."  The Daily Mail explains that one of  the' Chinese employees of the British  legation, who, according to its advices yesterday, escaped from Pekin  _-_-to__Niau_Chwang^and__reported_there_  that when he left Pekin most of the  members of the legations were dead  ���������and the condition of the-others was  hopeless, states now that- he did not  actually leave Pekin until July 8th,  and this goes to show if his statement  i3 to be relied upon that a general  massacre had not occurred on July 6th  as had been reported.  The Russians inflicted another  serious defeat upon the Chinese at  Fprt Echo on July 23. From Kobe  comes a report that eight battalions  cf Russians have been compelled to  leave Vladivostock and Tien Tsin on  account of the Manchuria trouble.  London, July '27.'���������This morning's  reports rom Shanghai reiterate the  allegation that tho surviving members o the diplomatic corps have already left' .Pekln on their way to  ��������� Tien Tsin and add that the foreigners aro being: escorted by troops of  Junglu, commanded by the chief of  the Chinese forces. ' This move is  stated to be the outcome of very  ���������strong intercourse between Li Hung  Chang and the foreign powers and to  have been taken in the hopes of  abating the wrath of the powers and  delaying the advance of the allies  towards Pekin. Advices received  from the same sources state that  half the orelgners in Pekin have been  killed or wounded or have died '���������from  privations.  The Dally Mail correspondent at  Shanghai cables that the. Chinese  troops have retreated from the native  city of Tien Tsin and are concentrating at Toungtun, on the railroad  line to Pekln with a view to opposing the advance, of the allies.  The proposal made by the Chinese  government to the American consul,  through Taotal Sheng, that hostilities among the Chinese sould cease  upon condition thak * the foreign ministers were sent unner escort to Tien  Tsin, apepars to be part or a deep-  'lald plot "to conceal the date of the  massacre and thc duplicity of the  .officials who .being in .possession of  the news, suppressed It. The story  will be that the ministers all left  Pekln under escort but were set upon  by a mob of Boxers. The world will  he told that although the Chinese  soldiers frought *. bravely they were  overcome and all massacred.

Fifteen  thousand Japanese troops landed at  Shanghai Kwau on July 22 and were  resisted by the Chinese. The Jap-  anse'-fought gallantly ' and won a  great victory - and the Chinese were  put to flight.

The ��������� Americans  were the Simcox family, Taylor, Perkins, Misses Gould and Morrill. The  Customs office reports disturbances  at Afung on Tuesday."  London, July 28.���������The Daily Express , has the following from Che  Foo, dated July 27: "Four more  British- mission"aries?'have~b"e'en���������mur****-  dered in the province of Shangsi.  News from native Christian sources  say that for eight days a general  massacre of foreigners has been in  progress in the provinces of Honan  Shansi. The Shanghai correspondent  of the Daily Telegraph says: "Trustworthy information which' was "received ' by me today, Friday, convinces me that all the ministers,  except Baron von Ketler. are still  alive. Some of the European survivors are leaving Pekln.  The Shanghai correspondent of the  Dally Express, wiring yesterday,  says it is reported there that a large,  section of the Boxers has revolted  against Prince Tuan, saying that he  is making tools of them for his own  ends. A desperate conflict took  place outside, of Pekin Sunday. Prince  Tuan personally led his , followers,  two of his' generals having' deserted  him. The battle lasted several hours  and Prince Tuan was defeated and  killed.  London, July 21 ��������� (4 a.m)���������Lyman  J. Gage's statement that there is  stijl hope but It is constantly diminishing, is held here to define accurately the situation. The Chinese  minister in. London yesterday received a telegram from Shen, director of  railways.and telegraphs to the effect  that an imperial decree was Issued  on. July 24th, in the following terms:.  "It is unfortunate that all the foreign  representatives except Baron von  Kettler are found in safety and unharmed. Provisions in the shape of  vegetables, food stuffs and fruits will  be supplied to the legations in order  to show courtesy."  The Morning Post goes so far as  to assert that there is now direct  communication between the Chinese  authorities in Pekin and London and  that tho ministers are safe. However  they may be not quite certain that  the attempts of the French. Italian  and other consuls to get direct replies from Pekln have utterly failed  and'it is pointed out that the ability  to supply the legation with fruit and  vegetables Involves the conclusion that  communication is not Impeded by  the Boxers. Thus despite the hopes  and fears the reiterated Chinese assertions of-the Bafety of the ministers fall to carry conviction and the  decision  of the" United States not to  _       delay military  measures   Is approved  of the belief that the story la the part   as the   only   course   to.pursue.    The  of.a deep laid  plan  to  conceal the date'Dally   News  says    that    negotiations  with the Chinese authorities, if there  he any authority in China, are useless. It is said that as. early, as July  12th an appeal from the emperor of  China to Queen Victoria. Mediation,  dated July 30 was handed to the  Marquis of Salisbury and it is understood ��������� that the oth.er. powers were not  communicated   witli" until   July   20.  The Shanghai correspondent of the  Daily Express asserts that the three  versions of Sir Claude Maclonald's  letter of July Gth are current* there,  and that it is believed that all three  originated from Chinese sources.  He adds however that Li Hung  Chang says the legation party ought  to  reach  Tien  Tsin on  Saturday.  The Morning Post correspondent  at Che Foo, wiring on Wednesday,  says that there is a rumor that  Prince Ching rescued the legationers  and conveyed them to a place of safety.  Eighteen missionaries have been  murdered at Timgchau, where the  churches have been burned.  General Sir Alfred Gazelee has  started for Taku.  Tokio, July 2S.���������It is reported  ironi Shanghai that the Eoxeis attacked the missionaries and natives  who arc Christianized at Paotingfu  on July Sth. and that a foreign physician and 2000 converts were massacred.

He  has ordered his trcops to exterminate all Christians. , Already one  French priest and from 2000 ,to 3000  natives   have  been   slaughtered. ���������  London, July 30.���������(4:15 a.m.)���������The  Shanghai coirespondent of the Dally  Telegiaph says: "The general situation is steadily becoming darker and  a crisis is said to be fast approaching. It is rumcred in Shanghai that  10,000 Chinese trocps have been secretly moved into that vicinity and  that tho commander of the Kingyu  forts has been ordered to fire if  any further addition is made to the  number of foieign ships ascending  the  river."

The Shanghai  correspondent ot the  -Daily - Express   telegraphs- yesterday,  saying.     The     new ' imperial     edict  promulgated     this _  evening urgently,  ordered  all  the viceroys and provincial   gvernors .to  endeavor   to  /negotiate   peace   with   the   powers   whose  ministers are held as hostages pending the results of the overtures for  the      abandonment      of      hostilities  against China.    The viceroys are also  against  attacks  and   to    prevent  by  all  means in their power the advance  of   the     foreign     troops,     especially  the  Yang  Tse  Kiang.        The  decree  says .-the   officials   will   ansjver   with  their lives for any failure to pxecute  these  orders.

When  the  governor  of.

The former  crossed Oliphant's rlvor and from  the high banks on the eastern side  he could see Middleburg, and the  enemy retiring in great disorder. The  main road north was covered for  several miles with' horsemen and  wagons. The enemy's rear was then  seven miles north. The mounted  forces were still west of the river.  Night was closing ln, the rain was  falling in torrents and so it was  impossible to follow. The night was  terrible. In addition to the rain  a strong east wind made the bivouac  more uncomfortable. One of our  force I regret to sa3", died of exposure  and thc mortality among the mules  and oxen was great. The men made  light of the hardships and were in  fine spirits when I saw them yesterday.  Hunter has occupied Fourlerberg  and so far as I know did not suffer  loss. He found Mrs.Steyn, wife ot  the ex-president of the Orange Free  State, and several of our men whom  DeWet had captured at different  times and whom he was unable to  send   to   Machadorp.

A despatch from Faurieshurg, dated July 27, shows that the capture  of Faurieshurg was preceded by  heavy fighting to force a passage of  the passes, which was stubbornly  contested  for two  days.  General Hunter's forces had the  hardest work in forcing Refif's Nek.  His casualties amount to about 100.  Upwards of G00O Boers with wagons,  and a large quantity ��������� of stores and  many cattle, have now;_been driven  into the mountainous passes where  they will be .guarded by British  troops.

He is  accompanied by an expert curer of  grass. The smples will be cut green,  rapidly dried in the sun. and then  stored in an airy building until completely cured. They will then be  shippesd to Winnipeg, where they  will be tastefully arranged and put  up in bundles to be sent to all the  great fairs and ehibitions on the  continent and Europe. As soon as  the grain crops ripen Mr.-Scharman  will begin to collect 14 loads of ripe  grain to be similarly dealt with. The  contrast between this enlightened  action of the C.P.R. business mon  in taking this very best means of advertising the country by such object  lessons, and the total inaction of the  Dominion immigration authorities in  this respect is very striking.

One pierced .the heart o������ his  majesty, who fell back and expired  in a few minutes. - The assassin was  quickly and with some difficulty saved from the fury of the populace.  He gave his name as Angelo Bressi, describing himself of Prato, in  Tuscany.  'The'prize distribution took place  about 10 o'clock at night.

July 27.**���������The campaign in  South Africa has taken an, unexpected  course. Lord Roberts' army has' advanced to Bronkhofst Spruit, half  way between Pretoria and Johannes-  bure under a strong guard, and acting on the theory that the Boers  profit by his halts and lose whenever his columns are ln motion. The  Boers have attempted to thwart his  plans by raids west and north of  rretoria and to hold him back by  bunging on to his flanks. He is  again pushing ahead and is striking  for the gate"to*- Lydenburg ��������� district,  leaving Lord Methuen and General  Baden Powell to suppress the burghers ln the western portions,. and  Colonel Broadwood to pursue General  Dewet across the "Vaal. It is not  clear whether Dewet has made a fresh  haul of 200 prisoners belonging to the  "Welsh ��������� Fusiliers near Roodeval, or  whether thia incident * is" an u-mended  fcrm of the previous. account of the  capture of 100 Highlanders.  The situation is most confusing and  veterans are shaking'their heads'.over,  it. but apparently Lord Roberts has  decided that the best method of suppressing guerilla warfare is to follow,  the railway towards the entrance to  the Lindenburs district and to cut off  the -Boer communications with the  base of supply at Delagoa Bay. The  plan is a bold one since the commanders of the raiders, are prowling  about in many directions, but Lord  Roberts counts without doubt upon  effective support from Sir Redvers  Buller and also upon the renewal of  ar, advance toward Mr. Kruger's last  stronghold. .  London. July 27.���������Lord Roberts  cables that the Boers were badly  beaten - near Balmoral and were  being pursued by General Hutton and  General French. General Hunter's  command was heavily engaged south  of Bethlehem. An effort is being  made there to surround the enemy.

London, July 27.���������Sir Henry Camp-  hell Bannerman, Liberal .leader In the  house ot commons, was .so.Incensed at  the action of the Radicals In forcing  a vote yesterday on -the motion to  reduce the salary of the secretary of  state for the colonies, Mr. Joseph  Chamberlain, that he .threatened to  resign the leadership of the party.  His friends, however, succeeded In  pei&uadlng him to reconsider his stand  and he called a meeting of the party  leaders which was held privately last  evening to discuss the* situation. The  result was that he agreed to retain  'the position provided he was not  as-ain subjected to such a rebuff.  Thursdav's Attendance at the "Winnipeg Fair Exceeds all Expectation.  Winnipeg,    July    28���������More      people  passed the turnstiles at the Winnipeg  exhibition grounds Thursday than any  other day in the history of the association. .  It was   Citizens' day and a  large  crowd    was    expected,  but  the  multitude which    packed    the   grand  stands and thronged  the grounds fat-  surpassed even the most sanguine expectations.     The attendance   was immense and all records    were knocked  into smithereens.     A conservative es-  Timate" placed^th'e���������crowd-within^-the-  exhibition    grounds    Thursday afternoon   and  evening   at  between  25,000  and 30,000 persons.     This   speaks volumes for the high esteem in which the  Winnipeg   -Industrial     is    held   both  locally and outside as. the   attendance  was composed    largely  of -Winnipeg  citizens with    a good    proportion    of  outsiders.     One of the most   pleasing  features    of   Thursday  was  the   live  stock parade whlclTtook place on the  grounds.      It  was    a very Impressing  spectacle and was valuable ln showing  what Manitoba   and the North West  can do' ln the way of   raising horses,  lhe parade was given In the evening.

This despatch contained information  concerning Li Hung Chang* and said  that the Earl would not leave Shanghai at present, but would conduct  his negotiations from that place.

When the bran is  perfectly dry Paris Green falls quickly  to the bolt0111 and is clinical, to mix  with the. bran.  -Mr. D. A.

Prof.  Piper says that it is peridroma saucia.  t am recommending the. use of Paris  Green, where it can be. nsed. but tbe  outbreak is so great that f am inclined  to think that baiting is the best plan  as it enables us to use the Paris Green  much stronger.
