HUTTON'S ADVANCE  Lettt.* From Tom Brown.  The nppi ndod letter from South  Ai'ricit will appeal to Titiui'Ni;  leaders as one of tho most in Lei e^L-  iiijy yet received from tho Nolson  boys who havo gone to the front.  It is from tho pen of corporal Tom  Biown, D squadron Canadian  .Mounted Rifles and relates his ex.-  poiiencos in ono ol the movements  recently described in iho dispatches.  Corporal Mrown wiitos fiom  Cronje's farm under date of May  SLh, and ���s-ays: '���Since leturning  I torn the North Colony lcbollionwo  hive been brigaded under goneral  Button, Lhe lute coinmandei-in-  J chief of tlio Canadian militia, at.  Blocmfonteii), and have had several  coos afc tlio enemy. Hist on May ."3th,  when we diovc irom. 1500 to 2000  ot thorn o'ifc of a stiong ])osition on  the Vet i ivci*.  "Sn this  engagement  the  Royal  Horse artillery opened the ball with  "-oiiic magnificent practice. ��he!ling  tlio biush, trenches and   <-idehi!k.  With our glasses we could  see  the  Bocra mount and scurry away every  little ���while.    After wo  hud  drawn  t!ie lire of  the  enemy''*  pom-poms  aud  maxims a   tioop   dismounted  and  extended    advancing   on   tho  ftingc  of trees  covering the liver  banks, while tho sqttadions crossed  the liver higher up and   attempted  to outflank and cut off the enemy's  lefcreat.     Tho Boers did  uot  wait  lor  us  however, bufc  mounted and  ictreated tit  top  speed  through a  gap in the hills under a heavy tiflo  iitc from our brigade. I had charge  of the left flanking group  and  had  it good  view  of  the  retreat.    My  ��quadron  clmsed the enemy  three  miles  in  a second  attempt to cut  thorn off, bnt darkness came ou and  a\c ^osfc them.     In   this  affair wo  ki'tYecf, Avounded andcaptmed about  80 Boei'a and tt Maxim with  a  loss  of   only three men  wounded   and  threp * h(*''1-es   killed.    The   enemy  had eutrenched themselves strongly  around the liver ford expecting us  to stumble   into  the trap  iu  the  same old way, but;,  thanks  to our  commander,    they   -were   out-gen-  cralicd and  well  beaten  while  we  lo-sfc neither men nor Iioise-%  '���General llutfcou is a trump, lie  uuderntandh our strong points aud  our weaknesses and talks lo us like  'a Dutch uncle, giving advice and  encouragement just wheie it -is  needed. 1 feci our destinies tire  safe in hi*- hands.  ���'After returning from the chase  that same night my troop wtis  paraded with two others before  geueral Hutton. He told us a chance  had come for tlio western men to  distinguish themselves and that he  wished ns to deploy around and  through the enemy's linos and des-  tjoy their chance of reinforcing at  at tho next town by tearing up tho  railroad. Under tho guidance of  t tvo Kaffits we succeeded iu tiding  silently through the Boor lines aud  blew out a culverfc. After the ex^  "plosion the-Crack swarmed" witn  Boers, but we got away safely.  Then our guides lost their way, and  wo weie foi cod to spend tho night  on a kopje in the midst of tlio  enemy's country. Next morning  after various alarms we managed  to rejoin tho column, narrowly  missing a party of .'100 Boers who  would have played havoc with our  party of 00 men.  "On the same day wc took tlio  town of Smuldiel without opposition and on the following day proceeded toward Kroonstadt. Aboufc  midway we saw dense columns of  muoke aud dust about ton miles  ahead accompanied by heavy reports which told us that the enemy  was destroying bridges stud railroads. Wo pushed on without  dinner and on arriving on the crest  of a ridge in the veldt saw the  enemy's whole baggage train  in       three sections        toiling  away among tho dust clouds  a couple of miles distant. The  Aeldfc was covered wifch men in extended ordor. Our scouts reported  vhe Boers 12,000 strong, while we,  the advance guard of the leffc wing  of lord Roberts' army, numbered  only 2000.  "Our squadron in open order led  the advance of tho main body, proceeded by si thin line of scouts in  skirmishing older, but no sooner  had we arrived within range than  f.ix guns opened on us with r, galling fire of shell and shrapnel. AVe  halted and stood our ground for  several minutes while tho scouts  foil back on ns. How the Boers  poured tho shells into us. Several  horses   were   quickly   Jailed,   and  some of the men wounded. We  escaped miraculously, for the common shell and shrapnel burst in the  ranks ahead, behind and all around  us.. The value of open order in the  attack was  abundantly  evidenced.  "Tlio I loyal Horse Artillery galloped into action jusfc before sundown, but managed to get iu a few  rounds before dark. Another  squadron came into the filing lino  and tlio sound of the Hying bullets  made a steady swishing sound liko  that of falling water. A general  oider to retire finally brought us  back to camp after having been on  the go steadily since four o'clock a.  m. without dinner. Tho reconnaissance avu<- a success, however, for  wc found fche enemy, pressed him  fui Cher back, unmasked his batteries and then heliographod back to  ���'Bobs" how matters stood."  After requesting R. M. Macdonald, to whom Tub Tjubuxk is indebted for the above letter, to remember him to his friends, cor-  poiul Brown concludes by stating  that the .Nelson buys AA'ere all Avell  and hearty at the time of wiifcing.  Kruger Willing for Peace.  London, June 1(5.���The Lorenzo  Marquee correspondent of the  Times says: **Ifc appears thafc  Steyn, and not Kruger, is now the  stumbling block in the way of the  surrender of the burghers. Shortly  after tho British entry iuto Pre-  toi ia, Kruger proposed to reopen  the peace negotiations. Steyn,  bearing in mind that his former advice Avas scouted, demurred to this,  and pointed oufc that according  to the treaty between the republics  neither could conclude peace without the other. Mr. Kruger is  equally unwilling to incur the  charge of a breach of faith, aud  had to continue the war. Nothing  further is known regarding the ruinated peace negotiations, bufc it is  a matter of notoriety that Mr.  Kruger favors peace on almost any  terms, but dislikes personally to  take an initiative that would in-  volve unconditional surrender."  No Hews of Fighting.  London, June 10.���4* a.m.���Lord  Roberts' dispatches leave affairs  east of Ptetoria with the Boors  withdrawn to new positions on  Tuesday. News of fresh fighting is  expected by tho Avar oilice, but none  came last night. General Bundle's  patiols had skirmishes wifch the  Boors' Aedefcte-3 again Wednesday.  Some Avonder is expressed here as to  what ho is doing wifch hi�� fchree  diA*isions. ifc is assumed by some  thafc general Buller +will move into  the Orange River colony and cooperate Avitli lord Methuen and  general Rundle in bagging president  Steyn and his seven or, eight thousand folloAvers. Major-general  Baden-Powell has been appointed  to" the temporary rank of lieutenant-  general.  British Troops for China.  London, June 10.'���-3:20 a.m.���The  Bt itisli goA eminent is considering  Avhcther a substantial force should  _nofcbo_*cnt to_China fiom South  Afi ica. it is thought unofficially  that lord Roberts could spare a brigade or two and the necessary  transpoi ts are now in South Afri-  cm waters. The commander of the  expedition, it is said, Avould probably be general sir William Nicholson.   Southern China Quiet.  London, Juno 10.��� J:20a.m.- The  Hong Kong correspondent of fche  Times under yesterday's date, says:  ''The southern provinces of China  aio still quiet, although there wits a  slight disturbance recently against  tho Catholics in tho village of Tai  Lck near the Fath Shan. There are  some misgivings at the idea that  the militaty authorities aro about  to cause a further depletion of the  Iloug Kong garrison." ���  Dewet's Haul.  London, June 10.���The Cape  Town correspondent of the Daily  Telegraph, in a dispatch dated yesteiday, says: '*I understand that  geneial Dewet, in addition to the  Derbyshire battalion, captured two  companies of the Cifcy Volunteers  and two companies of Yeomanry.  Two men onlv escaped to tell the  tale."       __J   Deny the Charge.  Paaiu,, Cape Colony, June 15.���  Mr. Thereon, president of fche Afrikander Bund congress, today denied  tho charge thafc the Afrikanders  wero part and parcel of a conspiracy to detach British South Aft ica  from the ei own, and affirmed the  loyalty of the Bund party fco queen  Victoria. $  LACROSSE MEN WILL HUSTLE  General Sporting Notes.  What the Nelson Lacrosse Club  requires more than anything else to  put the game on a substantial basis  is tt strong injection of ginger into  the management.    The pastime has  not    been   boomed   as    Canada's  national game deserves, and to this  may be laid the refusal of the celebration committee to extend financial aid for a game on Dominion  Day.    The success  which  has attended   the   bttseball   club    is   au  instance in point of Avhat can be  accomplished for a sporting organization by steady, persistent; "boosting," and every lover of lacrosse, to  say nothing of the element which is  unfamiliar    with   the   sport,    but  which  would  gladly Avelcome the  opportunity of   witnessing  a  fast  game aud judging the pastime on  its merits, will be gratified to learn  that the lacrosse  club is adopting  new methods.    After the  practice  on Monday night a manager and  captain Avill be appointed.     Ifc Avill  be the duty of the manager to interest every lacrosse player in the  Nelson club aud secure good  turnouts at the practices, while the captain Avill take charge of the players  on the field and see to it that every  man Avorks in his position.    If these  new officials AA'ork properly and are  supported by the players the game  is bound to boom.     If it  does  not  the club might as well throw up the  sponge, but this contingency is very  remote.    There are men in the club  who are   as  good  rustlers  as are  made, but heretofore they have unfortunately been satisfied to lie back  AA*hile  the  club  has  diifted  along  without snap or go.    It is now proposed to haAre a practice  game  on  the recreation grounds Wednesday  night next..  A band Avill be present  and the players Avill endeavor to  give citizens an idea  of   how  the  sport is~playcd.   In the  meantime  the hustlers io the club avi'II get in  their work and if they live  up to,  their promises  the   game  will  go  ahead. t   *  The teams for the lacrosse match,  on Wednesday night have -been  selected as folloAVS:    .  j>i:KT.vsn TKAM  Bunictt  Fost    ...    .

CHINESE SITUATION GRAVE  A letter has been received from  Green Avood closing the arrangement  for the Nelson lacrosse team to  visit there during the celebration  at that poinfc.  The latest addition to fche association football club is lle\\ William Munroe, the new pastor of the  Congregational church, who is an  enthusiastic footballist. Mr. Munroe played on tho fonvards afc his  university, and if,, he has time to  get into condition he Avill bo a  strong addition to the team.  Harry Houston, secretary of the  fire department, has received a  communication from the Greenwood  firemen which practically settles in  the affirmative tho question of the  Nelson team participating in the  sports at GreenAA'ocd. The letter  states that prizes Avill be offered as  follows :  AVot test, first pn/o        . .  5120 00  Wot test, second prize  -    . 50 00, flist prize 75 00  Iltib-and-hub l.iee, second pn/e .'iO 00  To enable the Nelson team to  take part in the races the Green-  Avood men have decided to hold the  competitions ou Saturday, the JJOfch  instant. The railroad rates Avill be  a one fare rate for the round trip,  good from the 2Sfch instant, and a  special traiu leaving Greenwood  Sunday morning at 11:45, enabling  the Nelson men to reach Greenwood  on Friday night at 10:30 and to  leave again on Sunday morning.  Rossland and Grand Forks will participate in tho races.- The Nelson  team is practically certain of going  in for the trip. The secretary of  the celebiation committee adds. '"Jfc  is now practically a settled fact to  bring your lacrosse team here."  CITY  LOCAL   NEWS.  momi: *ir*.M  .... Gonl   . .

The Fern',  belonging to the Duncans, is being  refitted, and will probably be out  for the holidays, and captain  Troup's temporary craft, the Flirt,  could participate-. 'The event Avould  undoubtedly attract groat interest.  Sam Neelands is in tho baseball  game again, the injury to his arm  not proving as serious as was  thought. MeLeod is taking a few  days off to muse a damaged finger.  The team practices tomorrow afternoon, and every player is wanted  on the grounds.  Assistant cifcy engineer Dill has  volunteered to lay out the grounds  for the football club. He Avill start  in this afternoon, several members  having agreed to assist in tho good  work. Permanent goal posts will  also be put up, this having been  left in the hands of W. M. Dowar,  tho club coach.

Russia's Attitude.  " London1, June i (��.���The Sfc. Petersburg correspondent of the Times  telegraphing Thui-iday says: "In  competent political circles, there is  no wish or trace of intention to act  in China other than Avith the great  powers. Afc the same time, there is  no desire to establish tho European  concert. Russia, liko tho United  .States, reserves to herself independence of action.  Howling Mobs in Pekin.  London, Juno l.">.���ThisDis the  situation in China as ifc appears to  the Shanghai correspondent of the  Associated Press, cabling last  eA'cning :  "Ifc is really the state of veiled  Avarfare. The members of the  legations in Pekin are virtually  prisoners and the Chinese troops  are only restrained from attacking  them by fear of the legation guards.  MeaiiAvhilc the ministers are altogether unable to communicate with  the officers commanding the relief  column, Avhich is making an enforced and isolated halt between  Tien Tsin aud Pekin. The walls of  the capital are guarded by J 00,000  imperial troops and the gates are  heavily defended with modern guns.  "General Tung, under orders  from tho empress dowager, says  that no more foreign troops shall  enter the sacred eity.  "On Monday the ministers sent a  demand to the Tsung Li Yamen  that the gates be opened, declaring  that otherwise the foreign troops  AA-ould enter forcibly. To this no  reply Avas given. A second message went unausAvered, or had not  been ansAvered Avhen the latest  news leffc Pekin. Sir Claude Mac-  Donald's latest message says that  the legations are capable of sustaining an effective defence unless  attacked in force.  "Russia," this correspondent asset ts, "notwithstanding assurances  to the contrary, sides Avifch China.  Some foreign troops are already reported to be in fche environs of Pekin, and the attitude of the Chinese troops is increasingly menacing.'  "The streets of Pekin," continues  the correspondent, "are reported to  be seething with anti-foreign mobs,  clamoring for the destruction of the  legations and the death of the foreign ministers. Even AA'ere the  Tsung Li Yamen disposed to restrain the Aioleuee of the reactionaries, ifc is considered highly improbable that they Avill be "able fco  hold them iu check. For the foreign ministers tho crisis will arise  Avhen the relief column comes in.  "Ib is still felfc here thafc the foreign force is Avholiy inadequate to  bafcfcle with the Chinese troops  massed outside of the imperial  gates, Avhich now include the, imperial troops fiom Shan Kai Kwau.  '"A disquieting element in the  'situation is the fact that although  the-"Russian-Chinese telegraph line  from Pekin via Jviakhta (eastern  Siberia) is working again, fche transmission of English messages is  rigidly refused. In Tien Tsin it is  reported that the foreign forces in  fche harbor Avill attack the Taku  foi ts. and, il' noecssaiy, bombard  them.''  ports of a similar character only  applied to a limited number of districts where cholera and smallpox  had attacked tho famine camps,  thus forming a combination which  for the moment bailies palliation.  Expenditure of money, he added,  could not mend the state of affairs  which Avas due to the cholera causing the people to abandon the  towns aud disperse in all directions.  German Troops in China.  Berlin,  June  15.���The German  foreign office has not yet  receiA*ed  tho expected dispatches from China  and their non-appearance  is  interpreted to   mean  the existence of  alarming   conditions.     Doubts are  expressed, hoAvever, as to the accuracy of the latest alleged news from  Pekin, because of the fact that tele-  giaphic   communication   Avith  the  Chinesecapitalhas not been restored.  The correspondent of the Associated  Press today obtained from a  leading foreign office official the following statement as   to  the  German  forces in China.    The official said:  "Our   forces   include   three   large  cruisers,   the   llansa, Bertha   and  Kaiserin Augusta, the small  cruisers Gefion and Irene, with the gunboats litis and Jamuara, with their  crows     aggregating      2272    men.  Then   there   are    our    forces    at  Kian      Chan,      numbering     4300.  These     (5572     are      all      trained  men, of whom 3000 may be spared,  if required, for action ashore." The  papers view the situation gloomily,  pointing oufc particularly the Avaut  of   harmony   among   the   international troops.   The Vossische Zei-  tung says :    "The hope of harmonious proceedings is fast vanishing as  the  separate  ambitions  appear on  the surface.    Probably it  will need  a feAv. severe reverses  before the  powers are cemented for  the  purpose of joint action."  Volunteers for Ashanti.

It   also   agrees   a*, ith  Mr.  Pas'ne in saying that the clique in  the cily council who are opposed to  any and all demands of labor haA*e  magnified the demand made by the  workmen.     The  question  at iss-ue  effected but nine  Avoikmeu, which  meant nine hours Avork of one man  for each day  they  AA'ere  employed  upon  the  Avoik.    This  being  so it  can scarcely be said that the granting of the request Avould either imperil the credit of  the  corporation  or   jeopaidize  the  passing  of the  public works loan bylaws.     It was  possible  for  the   members  of the  council to have granted or  refuted  the request made by the men without becoming hysteiical.
