K. wa.- .(his veiy same  folly, the preposterous idea that Cape  Culnnv could remain neutral in the  event of a war between Iho Transvaal  rind the Empire, which led the traitor  Schreiner, while disgracing the position of the premier of the colony, to  allow munitions of war to lie shipped  through Capetown to Lhe Orange  Free State, to leave the frontier towns  of the colony without garrisons, arms  or ammunition and tn permit the  Orange Free State lo iicciiuuilate a.I  the lolling stork of the Colonial  railways withiti her own limits. In  Sc.lueini i-'s ea**-e neutrality was only a  polite way of spelling treason.

Although iuostul' the mineral claims  are located on 1 he tributaries of Fish  Kiver. still, on Fish Hi ver itself, some  verv promising claims havo been  lately     discovered. I   refer    more  ' particularly lo the discoveries of free  'gold- made this season on t.he Iron  Dolbiraud Eva mineral claims, which  have already been bonded for $30,000  to .Spokane parties. Free gold is  visible in the quartz from iheseclaiins.  The parlies v> ho have the claims under  bond seem very willing to spend  money on di!velo*pnient. They have a  force of men at work, making a triil  leading from lhe Government trail to  the claims and bu.lding a cabin.  Thev have also let a contract for a  100 foot funnel.  poor. chice-C  The Dual rice Group is so far the  most important set of claims on Pool  (Jreek. mid consists of the Beatrice,  Folsom. Edmund, and Florence  mineral claims. - The work has all  been done on the Beatrice, and has  shown this property to be. very-  valuable. The ore is argentiferous  galena. The average content of silver  is stated at .$83 per ton. with a high  percentage of lead, while -special shipments are said to have gone as high as  SJ51G0 per ton. About 70 tons were  shipped to the smelter this summer.  A force of men, under the directions  of H. G. McGnlloch, is now engaged  in putting in a rawhide trail, repairing  the cabins, etc.. the intention being to  hhip ore this winter. All the ore. so  far. has beet, taken our. in sinking a  shaft 40 l\_et, and in running a tunnel  about 60 fuut in length. The future  of this property seems bright.  MOHAWK AND FllEZSO  These claims, owned by Itamey and  Downing, of Thomson's Landing, are  under bond to J. tl. .Scott, of Nelson.  They have a good surface showing of  irgentit'erous galena, and in any  country less difficult of accesss they  would have been worked long ago.     :  Hunter & Trapper are very de.-irable  properties, owned liy the Canada  Mutual Mining Development Company  of Toronto. They produce very high  grade g-ilena, but for some reason ate  not worked.  Carbonate Hill Group, consists of  Carbonate. Hill, Silver Dollar, Iron  Dollar, and Old Abe mineral claims,  owned by Joseph Best and John T.  Moore, of Comaplix. A tunnel is being "run on the Carbonate Hill lo tap  the vein at considerable depth,' and if  the surf.it e indications are" any  criterion this tunnel should strike ore.  The Hlack Bear- mineral claim is  owned by T. V. Downing, of Thomson's Landing. On this property a  strong lead, developed by a series of  open cuts, shows galena, and can be  traied the full length of the claim.  .On the Mountain Boy mineral claim  11'tunnel has been driven in a distance  of 510 feet by XV. G. Girard, the nwiie  and he states that the tunnel will have  to go about. 23 feet further to cut the  vein. On the outcrop above the  tunnel, the vein shows, carrying a  good grade of aigentiferous galena.  There are quite a number of other  mineral claims on Pool Creek, which  have fair surface showings, but little  is known regaidiug them', as their  owners do barely sufficient work to  hold them from year to year. The  creek is staked from end to end. so  much so that it is a very dif_i_i.lt  matter to Iind a piece of vacant  ground.  LEXINGTON CHEEK  Five mile-'.*- north of Pool Creek we  come to Lexington Creek, on which  are many good claims. The ore seems  to be in larger hollies, lint i.f lower  grade in silver than lhat or Pool Creek.  The formation seems to be different,  for while .011 1 Pool Creek are found  black, glossy argilitcs, on 1-exiugton  Creek it consists uf limestone and  grayish shales.  Royal Group consisting , r.f the  Lardeau King, L*irde.iu Queen, and  -Larcleitu-Prini(���������-mineral claims.'1���������-This  property now belongs lo a company,  orgat.ized ��������� in- Kossla.nl. which is  developing the properties, with very  gratifying Jesuits.. The ore is lather  low grade, but i.s is great quantity,  occurring in two parallel veins.  The" Wild Flower Group consists of  the Blue Bell, Daisy, and Daffodil  mineral claims.. The conditions are  exactly similar to that of the Royal  Group���������low grade galena, but abundance of it.  HOYD CTU-.EK  Boyd Creek is some six miles north  of Lexington Creek. Here we find the  gianile coming in, which formation  has been ptospected by different  pari ie.-. but so far with poor sueces-..  only a little galena and molybdenite  in small stringets having been found.  In llie formations which tlauk the.  granite, however, a number of good  locations have been made, notably iu  the lime dykes.  On one of these lime dykes we fini  the Kootenay Chief. This pinperly  and otliers adjoining it belong to Mr.  A. T. R. Hlnekwoi.il. of Winnipeg. A  tunnel has bi-en' driven in some .".X)  feet, and several tons of high g.ade  galena and gray copper ore extracted.  Ou the Winnipeg, another property  belonging to Mr. Blackwood, ii.tnnnu  was run I bis summer fur some '.iO feet,  exposing high grade galena, and gray  copper, 12 inches in width in places,  the average being about S inches.  M'l.OtJOAU- CKKKK  On the oilier side of Fiih River, and  about four miles furl her norih. we  couieMo McDougall. creek. On this  creek the ore is altogether different  from that found 011 the others,  re.-einbling the Rossland ore. being  chielly, pyrrhotitu of r.it.hi'f low grade;  being at such a distance from transportation, nothing, apparently., can be  done will, it at present. There are  eight claims, showing this kind of ore,  slaked on McDougall creek.  RAIU.E CUKICIv.  This district is about 12 miles from  Comaplix, and contains a few good  claims. Mention might be made of  the Agnes, Lucky Jack, Silver Star  and Jubilee. These claims ass'.y well  in gold, besides silver and copper, but  very little development work has been  done on uny of them.  On the divide between Sable svnd  Isaac Creek some good claims are  located, notably the Trilby group on  which, it was stated to me by one of  owners, there is IS inches "of solid  galena. The claim is very diliicult of  aciesi, however, there being no Ir.ul...  Distinguished   Visitors   to    Revelstoke,.

THE LAW'S CRIME  Murder will out. The secjuel to the  sensational Durant trial of three years  ago in San Francisco is a terrible-  one. Thousands of people believed at  the time that Durant was not the  guilty man and it will be seen from  the following San Francisco despatch  that they   were  right  and   the  courts  were   wrong:  "One of the suddc-st and most ati-o*  eiou-- legal murders so far recorded.  Is that of Theodore Durrant. who was  hanged in California a few years since  for the murder of Blanche Lamont  and Minnie Williams, a most diabolical crime, its very fiendishness hardly  having a parallel in the annals of vice,"  and its perpetrator was sought high  and low for several days, the whole  world hoping for his capture and  punishment. In the meantime tho  so-called acute detectlveB and police  authorities concluded a victim was  needed, and after fastening their  clutches on young Durrant. proceeded  to collect what they called evidence,  the whole mass of stuff in all probability being manufactured' for the  purpose of conviction, and all of a  circumstantial nature. Durrant stoutly maintained from his arrest up to  the moment of his execution that he  was innocent of the terrible charge,  but because he could not explain  -every moment of his presence at certain times he was convicted and  banged, and once mor..- the majesty of  the law, along with the thick-skulled  theory of these police wiseacres, was  duly vindicated. Now the true sequel:  A few days ago on his death bed,  Rev. M. Gibson, who at that time was  pastor of Emmanuel church, where  ���������one���������of���������the-murders-was���������commit teur  confesesed that he killed both of the  victims. He was an active and important witness at the triaT~T3f poor  Durrant, the reason of which Is now  quite plain, and also ln view of the  fact that suspicion waa strongly dir-  ���������ected to him at the time."  Theodore Durrant was hanged at  San Quentin prison, Cal_ on January  7.   1S93.  ors  as son  as his luck  changed,  but  he has shown that although ot Dutch  descent he has the true Hrltlsh pluck  for   he  has    maintained    his      stud  through good and ill fortune.    It was  a great   encouragement   however    to  him   to  own  such a  splendid   collection of stallions, his horse St. Simon  having  proved   to   bo  the  most  successful sire the world bus ever seen,  and  his stock  this year have  so  far  swept the board of thc classic races,  the   Two   Thousand,   One    thousand,  Derby and Oaks winners being all his  offsprings   while   the    socond   in   tho  Derby,   the   Duke   of   Portland's   colt  Simon  Dale,   was  also a son  of    St.  Simon.    The Dukes of Portland  have  always   been   good   patrons   of   sport,  thc   fourth   duke    having    won    the.  beat  thc   much   moro    famous   horse  Derby of  tSI9 with Tiersias, when he  Sultan.    Thc Oaks is the race which  has   changed   the   least  in   its  conditions,   for   from   the     beginning   in  1779  it  has  been   a  mile and  a  half  race,   and   has  always  been   run    on  Friday,   whereas   tho  Derby   was    at  first a mile race, afterwards lengthened in  distance  half a mile,  and was  at   first   run   on   Thursday   bul   after  nearly CO years the day was changed  to  the   present  day���������Wednesday.  Thc  St.  Leger too has suffered   from  several chops and  changes, the  distance  being  ai   first   two   miles,   but   -uforwards somewhat shortened, while the  allowance  to fillies in  the  race  have  several times been revised.  The Queen's  Golden  Vase at Ascot  was   this   yeai*   won   by   Solitaire,    a  colt   of   Sir   15.  .Cassel's.    This   race,  a  t.vo  mile weight for age race with  penalties and allowances, was at first  a  handicap  for  three    year  olds and  was  given   by   her   majesty  the i .ear  after her coronation, viz in 1S3S, and  has been continued by her to the present day without a break with the exception   of  last  year,   when    to    the  disgrace   of   British     sports-men     it  fell  through.    The  Queen    has    thus  shown   a   laudable    interest    in    the  national sport.     It must be confessed  however  that she  sold  a  house    and  small estate at Nemwarket belonging  to the crown,  with  the object of deterring the Prince of Wales from taking too keen an interest in it, a proceeding which has not been eminently  successful.     With   the   exception    of  H.It.H. tho old turfites have been remarkably   unsuccessful    this   season,  the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot having  fallen   to   Mr.   Drake    by  the  aid   of  Royal   Flush,   and     the     St.   James'  Palace stakes to Sir E.  Cassel    with.  Bona  Rosa,   who  was  second  in  the  Two Thousand. The Ascot stakes also  went   to   a  young  recruit    in    Lord  Carnarvon  who  won  it with Baldly,  Osbeck  secondhand. Lord.   R.osebery"s  colt Tom Cringle, who won the race  last  year,1 third.    Exception   to    this  luck must however be made in favor  of Mrs.: Langtry.    This notorious person won the Gold Cup at Ascot, a trophy more coveted by good sportsmen  and  women   than   the  Derby    or  St.  Leger, because it is open to horses of  all ages,  whereas the "classic  races"  are confined  to three year olds. Merman was her horse, an animal which  won the Cesarewitcli three   years ago  and   afterwards   trained   on   and   won  the Jockey Club Cup and    Goodwood  Cup.   This  year   he  appears    to     be  better than ever, for the Ascot Cup is  certainly thc most important race he  With the  W.C.P.A.  Six Thousand Miles by Land  and Water.  No. I���������By One of thePilgrlms  (Bq'permission of Tho Calgary Herald)  And now for the public, that nightmare of the journalist.  When we go to the play our enjoyment is saddened by the thought that  we must spend our beauty sloop in  writing an account of it for ths public to read next' day, and -when we  take our hard earned holidays on a  press excursion the happy moments  are tinted with the same leaden  streak���������we shall be expected on our  return to, give our Impressions to the  public, the great discontented, disbelieving B.P., and yet we like them,  ami wo cannot do without their good  opinion, however much we flatter  ourselves we can.  It is pleasant to meditate thuswise  and wc could spend hours at it, but  the stern image of the editor seated  at his desk with a large blue pencil  in his right hand, warns us that we  had better set to work at once ou the  task he has given us, or our oflice  stool will  know  us no more.  Several thousand miles by land and  water with the Western Canada Press  association Is the explanation of our  heading, and we give it here to prevent any person who may read these  lines confusing himself with the Idea  that the W.C.P.A. is the Y.M.C.A., for  thc latter is quite another institution.  The first place that interested us  (after passing the Brandon lunatic  asylum) was Winnipeg where we were  met at the station by Mr. Crome,  manager of the Toronto Type  foundry, and Mr. Clay. The latter  gentleman ' at once took charge  of our baggage, and the former, who  was known throughout the trip as  Papa, to which term of endearment  his kindly manner and stately though  somewhat portly figure entitled him,  took our bodies into custody once  and for all until we were, delivered  at Winnipeg station again s'ome weeks  later.  After luncheon at a restaurant  where we were kept in order by a  very stern waitress (personally we  did not find her severe as we had the  good fortune to lend her a pin for  her cuffs and to pin tiieni ourself)  we returned to the hotel to obtain  impressions of Winnipeg.

Both Merman   and  The  Grafter  were  bred  in  Australia,  and   the  result  of  tho race is  particularly  gratifying to  English   sportsmen   as   the   race   was  looked upon as almost a gift for the  French horse  who won  the      French  Two   Thousand.     Derby     and   Grand  Prize  of Paris,   and    France    is  not  very popular with Engiand just now.

Poor Longfellow: could he sea his  loved falls now. he would hardly say  they were laughing and leaping. The  gentleman who occupied:the chair a;  luncheon apologized for the scarcity  of water at the falls and explained  that ths waterworks company, who  were now making use of the celebrated stream, would have turned on  a better supply had they received  warning that the W.C.P.A. would be  there that day.  What a destroyer of poetry is the  practical American! He is trying In  rob the world of Niagara now. and  has already diverted about f.0.000  horse power from the greatest falls  in the world. Howevf-r there is still  some water left for  the  tourist.  At. Minneapo.is wc vlsiwd the Prrns  club and saw the black caps and other  relics of murderers, and then wo returned to St. Paul, crossing the Mississippi.  And here we have to chronicle our  drat  real  complaint.  Ever since we were a boy we have  seen pictures of this famous river In  books and at the panorama, but we  nrtver saw one that did not Include  a Mississippi steamboat. We have  been made familiar with the expression "smoking like a Mississippi  steamboat," and we thought that the  river in question was one long procession of steamboats, and yet on  the occasion in question.the only time  in our life that we have seen thn  great river, we sec no vestige of a  boat of any Vnd or even a sii'o of  malarial     fever.  -To make np for this however the  Minnesota pressment and the cham-  b"r of commerce of St. Paul banquctt-  ed us at the Commercial club In royal  style, and waited on us with thc help  of 20 niggers until wc had to catch  our train  for Milwaukee.  These twin cities, St. Paul and Minneapolis, are certainly great i.usiiic:-.*-  centres and their close proximity to  one another creates a healthy rivalry,  and their citizens mnkd witty speeches at. tne expense of their neighbors.  Next day we awoke* at Milwaukee,  and what shall we say about it? Our  diary on which we are relying for  the.s-j remarks simply gives "Milwaukee" and then in large letters  "iicer."  This powerful monasyllablc brings  to mind the fact that tlio W.C.P.A.  visited'the Pabst brewery in carriages  supplied by the mayor and aldermen  of Milwaukee whicli were driven by  coachmen with cockades in their hata.  Just think of being driven to drink  beer like that! Imagine further that,  on reaching thc brewery, you see machinery with wheels 'ti) feet across,  that you walk up and down huhdreds  of stairs om fi hot day, that you pass  through rooms containing hundreds  of boys and girls bottling a golden  liquid, hundreds of men packing it  in cases and scores of horses carting  away the bottles ln thousands, and  then fancy yourself tired, dusty and  hot, your mind bewildered with tho  noise and bustle, settling down in a  comfortable chair in a cool and quift  room and seeing in front o������ you  plates of exquisite gruyere cheese,  cut very thin, quaint looking crisp  biscuits, and a tall glass of the beautiful golden liquid with a head like a  cauliflower. Now shut your eyes for  a moment and remember that tho  golden liquid was as cold as ice.  It appears from the conversation on  the cars as we were rushing along  towards our next stopping place that  at Milwaukee the mayor presented us  each with a key of the clty.and our  ladies with .a beautiful  rose.  It also appears that we drove  through miles of streets laid out like  gardens, with stately chestnut trees  nnd magnificent residences on each  side, and that we visited tho Davidson theatre where we saw Miss Selene  Johnson and Aubrey Bouclcault in  tho Masqueruders and that, after tho  theatre, Rooney's boys sang trols and  quartettes and played cornets at the  Press club for our amusement and  that generally the Milwaukee citizens  went to no end of trouble and expense to make our short visit to their  beautiful city a thing never to be  forgotten.  But whatever took place at Milwaukee, and whether it occurred or  not we remember being called next  morning and hearing the back poi'.'ir  say  "Chicago  in  five   minutes.  And in five minutes ve ive'0 adu-  ally in the Stent queen city of Chicago and for the noxt "fi hours we  were run off our f������.er. tryli"..; Ij see  the city in that time.  We were rushed to Lincoln park in  tallyhos, photographed en route,  swung round in the Ferris wheel,  flung up 22 stories in an elevator to  hear Miss Cissie Loftus sing at' the  roof theatre at the Masonic temple,  which is 340 feet above ground, kidnapped and carried away on electric  cars to visit the Challenge foundry,  hurled back and packed In a theatre  to see the beautiful Miss. Viola Allen  and Mr. Robert Drouet- in 'the  Christian, seized and taken to dinner  at the top of another mountain of  bricks and mortar, and finally shot  off to our private cars dazed and  weary.  At odd "moments during this rush  we collected our minds and took Impressions, and the following are some  of them.  Chicago contains a large number of  Jews and niggers, the former being  as a rule very fat owing to the custom which the saloons have of giving  a free lunch to every man -who buys  a glass of beer. The way to enjoy  this lunch is to pay five cents for  the beer, and then adjourn to the  lunch counter where you will see a  stack of bread. Take a piece in  your hand and hold it out to the  gentleman who presides at the hot  roast beef. Dont speak and he will  place a slice of beautiful beef on it.  Then you dip another piece of bread  in the gravy surrounding the joint,  make a sandwich and eat- it. Next  procure some more bread and pick  out two hot sausages from the sausage dish with your fingers. If they  do not feel well cooked put them back  and take others, and you will thus  obtain a good meal for five.cents, including a glass of beer. There is no  limit to tha number of times -you  can visit the lunch counter ^for one  glass of beer. These instructions are  right for we did "it ourself.  In Chicago it would appear that  musicians, more especially mandolin  and guitar players, are generally poor  and in need of cash, as is shown by  a glance at the windows of the loan  merchants, or pawn brokers, as we  are wont to call them, where a great  collection of musical instruments can  always be seen. Women and children frequent the music halls and talk  a good deal during the performance,  however the women all remove their  hats except those who wear the very  large ones.  There n'-e no public seats in Chicago for the weary man to sit on,  either in the streets or public parks,  Visitors to Chicago would do well to  travel with a captive baloon, as everything seems- to be on about the 21st  floor.  In. reading these impressions please  the Detroit citizens that -we understood the seemingly strange behaviour  of the two brakesmen.  The morning wns taken up by a  visit .to Walkerville, a substantial  little town on the Canadian side of  tho Detroit river, named after Hiram  Walker, who established hore in 1858  the distillery to which the town owes  its existence. Mr. Robbins, the  manager, kindly escorted us through  thc offices and tho town, and presented usjvith a souvenir containing  beautifully colored photographs of the  town, and a dissertation on "Canadian  Club  Whiskey."  It appears from this hook that  owing to its absolute purity its delicate aroma and flavor, and.' its extreme mellowness, "Canadian Club"  is in high favor with physicians as a  prescription stimulant. We arc inclined to think that members of tlio  W.C.P.A. are mostly physicians.  From Walkerville the boat was  taken to Belle Isle park, where Detroit society, and 'Arry. and 'Arrlet,  can bo ' seen promenading picnicing,  boating and bicycling, each according to his taste, on Sunday afternoon.  Dotroit Is remarkable -for pretty  girls,  and  Sunday  theatres.  The next point honored with a visit  by the W.C.P.A. wns Buffalo, where  we managed to obtain a tough steak  for breakfast. Wc noticed this fact  particularly, as it was tho only placo  during our travels where we met this  common home dainty.  You will oftentimes have noticed,  gentle reader, when in another town  than the one you live in, how friendly you feel towards ono of your own  citizens, whom you may chance to  meet, possibly you arc not on speaking terms with him when at home.  Well, that is how we felt towards  the steak, and we really enjoyed our  breakfast though wc could not eat  it. Everywhere wc went thc meat  was excellent and the change surprised us. .Perhaps to do honor to tho  W.C.P.A. the original animal which*  gave Its name to the place was substituted for the usual fatted calf, and  In that case considering the beast's  age the steak was really very creditable.  After breakfast we "were presented with a beautiful souvenir programme bound in khaki and sewn  with, red, white and blue ribbon,  having a real maple leaf pasted on  the cover and endorsed "with the  compliments of Miller , & Richard,  typefounders to Her Majesty." ���������  Every moment of our time from  our arrival at Buffalo until we embarked at Queenstown for Toronto  two days later was arranged .for by  the kind compilers of this quaint  programme which began as follows:  "We being publishers, printers.', pressmen, printsellers, penmen. poets(?),  painters, potterers, players!! performers, parsons, pedagogues? peddlers,  pleaders, Pharisees, professors, prodigals, pickwicks, prophets,' pioneers,  punsters, prodigies, patroits! populists, prohibitionists? prognosticators,  pessimists, practical persons, peculiar  people, and poor poor pilgrims, now  journeying together in concert, - harmony, brotherly love, and in a far-  off country, conspire to Be one common family, for mutual admiration,  criticism, flattery, condemnation,  help, obstruction' and competition,  until debt, dissention, or death do us  part or our pilgrimage be ended;  Therefore be it Resolved that each  and all of us who have fallen from  the -Rank of Parson, public school  teacher or Printer's Devil do hereby  unite our hands and swear allegiance  to the W.C.P.A., now heitceforth and  for the time being etc., etc.  Before we had time to read more  of the programme we were introduc  ed to the mayor of Buffalo and then  taken ln charge by representatives  of the Pan-American exposition, who  escorted us over tho show grounds  where this great exposition will be  held next year.  The electric cars which conveyed  us thither were very fast, and. made  a noise for all the world like a nervous cow with an ever increasing  pain. When the cow had succumbed  we '-were at the entrance to the  grounds, and thero wo saw, how  world's fairs aro made in Uncle Sam's  land.  We saw an immense ban-on brick  field, covering some hundreds of acres  being transformed into fairy land,  we saw men with scrapers digging  lakes; men with carts building  mountains;, plasterers casting statuary and immense ornaments for  mammoth buildings; gardeners  planting groves of big trees; surveyors laying out railways and canals:  and hundreds of other men working  at a thousand and ono things which  only tho Ingenuity nnd daring of an  American exposition maker could suggest.   o   WHITE     GWIXXIM   &   SCOTT  Barristers, Solicitors, Notaries Public.

No.   2  Leaving Chicago in the evening we  slept on the train and reached Detroit next morning half dressed.  Detroit claims for Itself tho distinction of having the cleanest and  best kept streets of any city in America, or In put in t.h-e phraseology so  familiar to the visitor to the great  republic, "witout ex-ception (accent  on the ex) the brightest and cleanest  (accent on the) city In the en-tire  (accent on tho en) <ontlnent of the  U (accent) nlted States of (accent of)  America."  Certainly Detroit Ih a model in this  respect, and thf app������arance of her  young men Is in keeping with the  beautiful streets.  The most careless observer cannot  help noticing how well dressed tbe  young men are there." Such well  fitting frock coats, such shiney silk  hats, and such high collars. It is no  exaggeration to say that the collars  worn ln Detroit are higher than those  whicli generally adorn the conventional American Knglish stage dude.  The eyeglass will probably follow  later.  Of course we felt rather out of placft  and undressed among this splendor.  Our Western apparel did not seem to  be happy there. Had we only known  what to expeel, we thought, that  though we could not have produced  frock coats, we might have brought  our dress clothes, and worn them,  after the example of th'1 late, president  of France, during the visit of the  German  emperor to his capital.  Bven the railwny servantB didn't  seem to like our dress. As we were  drawing near Detroit a member of  the W.C.P.A. finding the atmosphere  of the cars oppressive, took the opportunity ot alighting at a small station and taking the fresh air on the  platform. On the train resuming its  journey he jumped on board and was  about .to climb into his bunk, when  he was arrested by two brakesmen,  Who insisted that he was a tramp,  and but for the timely arrival of  Papa, who gave the necessary explanations, the poor man would have been  forcibly ejected from the train.

PUBLICATION DAYS : Tuesdays and Fridays.  i&i&i&4&i&l&ifri������J*_*i*������IE^& 9*/  1  m>  Chinese War  I_ondon,' June 23���������Lord Salisbury presided yesterday morning at a meeting of the cabinet to consider the far  eastern crisis. Prior to tho meeting the  French ambassador, M. Paul Cambon,  and the Chinese minister paid a  lengthy visit to the officials of the  foreign office, and it Is expected important developments will bo the outcome of thc conference ns Lord Salisbury proceeded to Windsor after the  meeting.  The apprehensions as to the fate oC  the Europeans cut off at Tien Tsen  have been sharpened by Admiral  Kempff's message which was tho first  information of the bombardment and  destruction of the foreign concessions.  But ln spite of Shanghai's grim  statement that the Chinese used forty  pounders and that 1,500 foreigners  were massacred there Is no reason to  conclude that the foreign colony has  been  unable  to protect Itself.  Shanghai also reports that Tien Tsin  was bombarded for two days and adds  lhat the casualties were 100, and it Is  estimated that Ave thousand International troops are there and says  now that the allied commanders at  Tau ������ re pushing forward a relief  column. It is hoped that their apprehensions  will  soon  be  dispelled.  Another Shanghai despatch announces all the members of the foreign  communities of Pelts to have arrived  at Che Foo on board the ��������� Nashville,  hut they left all their possessions  behind. A despatch from Shanghai  under yesterday's date says that five  Chinese warships passed Woo Sung  today and thai officers of thc British  cruiser Undaunted visited the Chinese  commanding officer and received an  assurance thaL the ships were "under  orders to act against any Boxer uprising.  It is understood the admiralty has  received a despatch from thu British  naval commander in Chinese waters  on the subject of the heavy damage  done to the foreign concessions at  Tien Tsen and the casualties of the  International force. This has not yet  been published. The admiralty sent  orders to Portsmouth and Plymouth  yesterday morning to hold a detachment of the marine artillery and infantry in readiness for service ln  China.  ..  It is thought in some quarters that  T_,l Hung Chang's failure to go to  Pekin indicates he is aware that the  situation Is so bad that lt is impossiblo  for  him   to  overcome   the  difficulty.  Tlie Shanghai correspondent ot the  Times says: ."Great destruction was  caused by the Boxers Tn the native  quarter of Tien Tsen on June 15th.  but the presence of foreign troops protected them. Tlie-natlve press assert  that there are bttter dissensions in the  Manchu party.  - Great secrecy is maintained regarding Japan's military preparations.  Fifteen large transports have already  been chartered and warships are mobilizing. A field post service from Taku  to Pekin is being organized and will  proceed immediately.  London, June 23���������A special from  Shanghai' says it is reported from  Japanese sources that 1,500 foreigners  have been massacred at Tien Tsin.  London, June 23.���������Silence at Pekin  still continues. The allied forces  ���������were having a' sharp defensive fight  at Tien Tsen on Tuesday and Wednesday with a prospect of being reinforced Thursday. This is the situation  ln China as set forth in the British  government  despatches.  Eight hundred Americans are taking  part in the fighting at Tien Tsen, says  the  Shanghai    correspondent    of    the  --���������nallv Express, cabling .late last night.  they apparently form a part of the  supplementary force which arrived  with the Germans and the British  after the conflict started. It is impossible "to estimate the number'of  Chinese there, but they had a surprisingly large number of guns. This  information appears . to have been  brought by the United States gunboat  Nashvile to Che Foo and telegraphed  there to Shanghai.  The  Chinese are deserting Shanghai  ln large numbers and going into the  interior.     Reports from native sources  continue   to  reach    Shanghai    of an--  archy in Pekln.     According  to statements  the   streets  are  filled day  and  night with     Boxers, who     are wholly  beyond the  control    of    the    Chinese  (^troops, and who are    working   themselves up   to a frenzy and   clamoring  for  the death of all  foreigners.    The  English consulate at Shanghai Is said  to   have   received      from      influential  natives   reports  of a    tragedy  in  the  palace    at    Pekin,  thougth    precisely  of what charcter it is is not   defined.  The  consulate   thinks    that.   Admiral  Seymour,   commander    of    the  International relief column was   misled by  information  from  Pekin.   and,    consequently-underestimated tho difficulties  In   liis  way,   and   the   Chinese  power  of resistance with Maxim   guns   and  Mausers.  ���������The consuls at Shanghai still  believe the foreign missionaries at  Pekln are safe, although Japanese reports received at Shanghai allege  that up to June 15th, 100 foreigners  had bceiv killed In Ppkin. The Daily  Express says: "We understand that  Mr. R. T. Tower, , secretary of the  British embassy in Washington is to  succeed . Sir Claude McDonald at  Pekin, and that the reason- for Sir  .Claude's' recall is a break-down ln  health" *     L!  A despatch from Vienna says: "LI  Hung Chang hag wired the various  legations in Europe direcing them to  inform the government to which they  are accredited that he wa scalled to  Pekin by the Empress to act as Intermediator between China and tho  powers and negotiate settlement oC the  points at Issue and begs the powers  to facilitate his mission by ceasing to  send troops to China."  Sheng,' director general o������ telegraphs, wires from Shanghai to the  Chinese legation in Europe that the  foreign legations in Pekin are safe.  It Is reported that the British government will immediately send 1,200  marines to China, and possibly, according' to some of the morning  papers, 1,000 of tho regulars now with  Lord Roberts.  Hong Kong, Juno 22.���������LI Hung  Chang, who was interviewed yesterday, snid he would leave for Pekin on  Juno 27lh in obedience to an order  from the Empress, lo suppress tho  Boxers. Ills idea of tho situation Is  to decapitate the leaders and send  their Ignorant followers home and  make peace with   the powers.  London, June 25.���������Thc position of  the International forces in north  China where J-p.000 Europeans aro  striving for a footing to succor the  legations In Pekln appears to Increase  in  peril   with every fresh despatch.  Pekln has not been heard from direct for 14 days and tho last despatch was one imploring aid.  Admiral Seymour's column o������ 2000  men was last heard of 12 days ago  surrounded midway between Pekin  and Tien Tsin. They probably have  now  reached  Pekin.  A corps of 3000 internationals at  Tien Tsin are hard pressed and were  fighting for their lives on Thursday,  and a relieving forco, less than 4000.  were beaten back to Taku on Friday.  Observers on the spot think that  20,000 would not be too many to  grasp China firmly.  The admiralty has received, the following from the British rear admiral  at Taku: "Che Foo, June 24.���������Only  one runner has got through from  TlenTsIn in 10 days. No 'Information  can be obtained except that the foreign settlement is almost entirely de-  troyed and our people are fighting  hard. News Is received _ as this telegram is despatched that an attempt  to relieve Tien Tsin has. resulted In  some losses. The allied admirals are  working in perfect accord with the  Russian vice admiral as senior  officer."  Press messages ,from Shanghai  dated yesterday which contain some  later information say: "Official ' Japanese telegrams confirm reports of  the defeat of the allied forces at  TienTsin. Foreigners there are now  placed in the most desperate situation.  Russian Admiral Hildbrandt 'yesterday sent a mixed force from Taku  to attempt the relief of Tien ��������� Tsin.  The guns of the Chinese around Tien  Tsin are superior to anything the defending European force has or is  likely to have for some time." ,  The bombardment of Tien Tsin continued on Friday." Bomb shells "were  hastily erected by the foreign troops  largely constructed of wetted piece  goods. Food supplies are insufficient  and the continued shelling is reported as telling terribly. Among the  killed of the relief force on Friday is  Commander H.M.S. Barfleur. Foreign  casualties are 300.  Thinan Fu, -June 25.���������An official  messenger who -left.Pekin on June  19 has just arrived. He says the  legations are - safe and ministers uninjured. They are "demanding, passports from Tsung Li Yamen, which  will probably he granted.  London, June 26.���������(3:55 a.m.)���������The  British cruiser Terrible arrived at  Chee Foo today with the latest news,  which is, as follows "Bight hundred  Sikhs and 200 Welsh Fusiliers effect-  ad a junction with the American, Russian- and~Germari��������� force���������which���������had-  heen cut off hy the Chinese nine  miles from Tien Tsin. It was-' determined by the combined * force to  deliver an assault on the Chinese at  Tien Tsin last night."  From the above despatch it is not  made clear what' the strength of the  combined column really is, however it  seems that the flrst relieving column  sent to Tien Tsin has been relieved  by another and that the two forces  were strong enough to deliver an attack on the Chinese troops besieging  Tien  Tsin.  Foreign opinion here, says a despatch from Shanghai to the Daily  Express, dated yesterday, inclines to  the belief that the worst has happened to the legations at Pekin. Gravest  fears are felt for the safety of the  international column commanded by  Rear Admiral  Seymour.  The latest news from Pekin which  was received on July" 19 said the legations were safe at that time, but  no word has come through since and  there is no guarantee that they are  now safe . The strength of the  Chinese has been sadly under rated  and we must hope for the best but at  present the situations'- grows more  and more gloomy.  London, June 26.���������Bad news comes  from Nanking whore the unchecked  roits are growing worse and worse  hourly. Viceroy Lu Kin telegraphing  to the" British authorities says that  he has ordered five Chinese cruisers  to proceed to Nanking' immediately.  General Ma's army.says a correspondent at. Shanghai consisting of 4000  left over a week ago for Pekin and  General Sung Kwang with a force  numbering 2500 left for the same  place on June 15.  Extensive preparations by the allies  are going forward. The first, regiment from India consisting of 1000  men, embarked at Calcutta yesterday - and 843 more marines received  orders  to  start  with    all   haste    for  China. The army corps ordered out  by Russia numbers 5000 with 54 guns.  Jtipuu ��������� purposfff t*.i land 15,000 n-.cn  ou Chinese -territory in two weeks.  Among the minor mi.rtary preparations the Portuguese governor of  Macar island at the southwest entrance of Canton river is sending  arms to the Portuguese in Canton.  A careful estimate of the number  and armament of the Chinese troops  around Pekin puts the total of the  celestials at 360,000 men and it is  calculated that these troops possess  220 7-centimetre Creusote guns, 18  Krupps and 150 Maxims. Their supply of amunition is Inexhaustible it  has been mainly supplied by a German firm at Eaorlowitz. Fully three-  fourths of the Chinese troops are  badly drilled, wholly undisciplined  and quite unfamiliar with the use of  modern weapons. Still their very  weight of numbers renders them a  serious proposition and It will take  far more than a column of 2000 men  to disperse them. In the meantime  news is anxiously awaited from the  besieged in Pekin.  TELEGRAPHIC   SUMMARY  Boer War  Winnipeg.

The occasion of Mr. Tart e's remarks  was an address on "Canada," wliich lie  gave in the Canadian pavillinn at the  invitation of newly orgnized society.  T/Ecolt! International. This society  has been only recently formed, its  object being to take advantage of the  popular interest in foreign countries  which is being aroused by the present  Exposition to spread a more general  knowledge of the various countries of  lhe world, their products, institutions  and character istic*.  Mr. Tartu, as a Canadian Commissioner-Gene>-iil, was invited to give a  "conference" on Canada, and this look  place in the Canadian pavilion at the  Exposition grounds. Admission lo the  conference was by invitation, and quite  ajnumbei' of distinguished Parisians  as well as tunny Canadians hi Paris  were present.  HIS FLAG  THIS TI*tICOI.01l  Mr. Turin began his address hy a  reierence to the varied natural wealth  of the Dominion, and the advantages  which the country offered to Ihe intending immigrant from Europe. He  soon however, drifted into a politico-  religious disqnistion. and aroused the  enthusiasm of some of his Parisian  auditors by declaring that French  Canada was never so French and so  Catholic as at the present, time, aud  the independence of England now  enjoyed would be still further increased  in tho future. The tricolor, he said,  was now and ever would be theflng of  French Canada.  FKKXC1I ABOVE ALT,  Continuing. Mr. Tarte said: " I have  frequently heard Canada spoken of as  a possession of Great Britain. I object,  to the term possession. We are not a  possession. We possess our own  present and our own future, even  more than the piesent. I am a  Frenchman and I am a Minister iu the  Dominion Cabinet. The Premier in  Canada is a Frenchman, and twoother  Cabinet Ministers are. also Fiench-  Canadians. Should the time ever  come when it should be necessaey_ for  me to choose between being a Ministei  and remaining French 1 should remain  French."  This latter declaration it will be  noted, is identical with the statement,  couched almost in the same words  made by Mr. Tartu-in Canada some  months ago.  Mr. Tarte then pr.-ceeded to give an  account of the progress of the. French  iu Canada during the past half century  declaring that their natural increase  of population Tar exceeded that of the  English-speaking population. In  eastern Ontario, he said, and also in  pails of Manitoba, where25 years ago  the English were greatly in the  majority, the French now either  outnumber those of English origin or  were at, least equally numerous. Their  increased prestige in Ontario, he said,  wasshown by the fact that the.-present-Speaker of the Legislature of that  Province was a. French-Canadian Mr.  I'jVanlurel.  DUCr.AliKS CANADA WOULD nE XEUTKAL  IN THE EVENT OK A KUROl'KAN WAR  Mr, Tarte then made this somewhat  eniginal.ic observation:  "I have frequently been asked." he.  said, "what would be the altitude of  C'liindain lhe event of a. war between  France unci England: would Fiencli-  Oaun.lians light, for England against,  France, or would their help go out to  the land from which thev sprang. To  this I might i-eplv somewhat in the  words of a French gentlemen with  whom I was speaking just the other  day. We were discussing the question  of a possible European war, and coming lo the point- of likely allies, this  gentlemen said that if France found  .herself_willioiit._fi:e.iiids_she_.c_iiuld_s_tand_  alone and let Europe go. And s-o 1  would say with regard to Canada���������  Canada could stand alone aud let  Europe do what she liked."
