 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDlf ION BV MAIL_  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  THURSDAY MORNING   JUNE 7 1900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS  - 'if  SERiOUS CRISIS IN CHINA  Powers Land Marines.  London, Juno 7.���Affairs in China  are gradually working up to a crisis ,  of the iirst magnitude. , The morning papers'think that the British  squadron is recognized as inferior  in strength to the Russian as well  as the Japanese. The. Daily Telegraph says :  "We regret that Great Britain is  to) much occupied in South Africa  to settle the Chinese business with  a strong hand."  The Morning Post has the following dispatch from Pekin, dated  yesterday :  "Reports say that the court party  (_   is collecting inside the  city.    Consequently   there  is   increased  uneasiness."  Loxnox, June G.���The Rev. Mr.  Sowerby, who has worked for 20  years in China, and who lias just  reached London from Pao Tung  Fu, said to a correspondent of the  Associated Press today: "The  Boxers are the scum of the population. They have no /uniform organization, nor any official leaders.  Formerly they carried broad  swords, but now they have well  managed modern weapons. Before  (hilling they throw themselves, on  tho ground, work themselves into a  frenzy and then believe themselves  invulnerable. If. the Boxers are  permitted to invade Pekin the result will probably be disastrous to  the foreign missions, which are  isolated and spread over a large  ;<arfca.";  .Berlin, June 0.���Reports have  been received  in   official   quarters  that   railway    communication    in  Shan Tung has been forcibly stopped by the   systematic at.tacks  of  large numbers of "Black Knives," a  secret society similar to the Boxers.  A high official of the foreign office  ���ysid to  the sorrespondent  of   the  Associated     Press     this   evening:  '���Baron Von Kettler, German minister   at   Pekin,   has    instructions  Hinila^to those received hy United  States'minister, Mr. Conger, to op-  �� rate for the piotcetion.of life. The  uiiall number of Geiman marines  f litis far landed  is due to  the fact  "fchafc it was   French  interests   and  nofc German that wore first affected  by the Boxer movement.   Germany  'however will do as much as   the  other powers towards  suppressing  1 he Boxers.    She will land further  1 roops if necessary.   We now view  lhe situation as serious."  German official circles Continue to  regard the Chinese situation as  grave. This is shown by fche addi-  lional number of marines landed  from the litis, and from the fact  111 afc the largo protected cruiser  ' Bertha, .bearing, the commander of  the far Asiatic squadron, rear-  admiral Hendcmann, has been ordered to proceed to Taku.  "Washington, June 6.���The  friends of the American missionaries in the disturbed section of  Chino~are becomiug���~alarmed~at~the~  state of affairs, and the state department is beginning to feel pres-  snio of their efforts to adopt an  aggressive policy. Today inquiries were made as to fche reason of  the passive attitude of the United  States' naval forces iu Chinese  waters, while tho Russians are reported to have promptly sent out  military expeditions front Pekin for  tho roscue of Russian, French and  Belgian subjects whose safety was  jeopardized. It was argued that  the United States marines should  likewise have been despatched to  i lie assistance of tho American mis-  fciouaries.  The only possible answer the de-'  }>arfciiienfc could make was that  minister Conger, being ou the  ground, was better^ prepared than'  jinyone here to adopt relief measures for whicli he had already received the sanction of the department' in the shape of general  authorization to protect American  interests, which meant American  lives among other things.  lt also was question whether the  very small force of marines at the  minister's command could be used  l o make a march though a hostile  ���country and away from its base.  In that ease tho United States lega-  i ion, fche only refuge in case of an  outbreak, would be unsafe for  American refugees as well as for  xhe minister himself for lack of a  suitable guard.  Meanwhile, the developments are  being watched closely, and if the  nexfc phase should be worse, it is  probable that in addition to the  Jlelena, at least one more warship,  possibly the Princeton, with a full  battalion of marines will be, ordered up the Pei IIo river to Tien  Tsin.  So far the proposition to call on  general McArthur for troops for a  landing party has not been broached to the war department, and it is  not expected such a step will be  taken, save as a last resort, for it is  thought that it would work an en:  tanglenient of the United States in  the European designs respecting  China, from which ifc would difficult or impossible to secure release.  Shanghai, June (i.���In consequence of the representations of  Japan, the landing of a large Russian force at Taku is alleged to have  been stopped. It is believed here  that, should Russia persist in sending a preponderant military force to  the front, a collision with Japan  would inevitably result.  The soldiers dispatched to attack  the Boxers have fought an engagement quite close to Pekin. Many  were killed on both sides.  Alarming reports are current  here of the hurried completion of  the the Japanese fleet.  "Casualty, Capetown"  Montreal, June 0.���"Casualty,  Capetown," is the registered address of the department at Capetown whicli gives all information  respecting the Avounded, etc., atthe  front. The Canadian Pacific railway's telegraph accepts messages  to this'address at a special rate of  87 cents per word from all points  in Manitoba and the wesfc.  LORD ROBERTS'NEXT MOVE  Boer Forces Still Intact  London, June 0.���The officials  here, as well as others, find difficulty in prognosticating lord Roberts' immediate program. It appears that the Boer commander-in-  chief, general Botha, with all his  guns, withdrew in good order, pro<  bably along the Delagoa Bay  railway, with a view of joining president Kruger, so the  Transvaal forces remain practically lutaci, with presidents  Kruger and Steyn and general  Botha and secietary of state Reitz  all safe, and in a position to continue the direction of affairs. Tho  more optimistic see iu the fact that  president-Kruger's wife and general  Botha's wife were leffc in Pretoria  an indication that the president;  does not count on a long resistance.  In any case it will prpbably take  lord Roberts at least a week to organize a campaign of pursuit.  The military authorities anticipate fchatrfche uexfc important news  will come'from general Buller's division, where plenty of time has  elapsed to complete the turning  movement at Laing's Nek.  A belated dispatch from Mafeking dated May KJsfc announces the  Biitish occupation of Malniani,  where 200 Boers surrendered.  Devlin, and everything else connected with the matter. All that  the minister did was to approve of  the contract. "Let the honorable  gentlemen make their charges,"  said Dr. Borden, "and they will not  have five minutes to wait for a committee." The debate continued all  evening.      Crowded Political Meeting.  Vancouver, June 6���[Special to  The Tribune].���The crowd was so  great at a meeting in the city hall  held in the interests of the labor  party tonight, at  which,v Wilson,  Martin, Cotton and Ralph Smith  spoke, that hundreds werev unable  to gain admittance.   Williams and  McLean,     the    labor   candidates,  spoke first and were well- received.  They   were   followed   by Wilson,  Conservative leader in  Vancouver.  Mr. Wilson got a good hearing.   He  declared thafc he was not allied to  the so-called Turner party, nor had  he an understanding with Cotton,  whereupon he proceeded to harshly  criticise Mr. Cotton politically.   He  endorsed most of the labor planks,  expressed approval of the referendum and favored an act to keep  out     Orientals,    and    practically  everything   else    he   thought   his  audience might like.   Ralph Smith  followed.   He   scored   Mr.   Martin  severely, declaring that labor men  should not trust him, owing to his  record.   He also spoke Of the fair:-  ness of the New. Vancouver Coal  Company to its men and the cause of  labor.   Martin was noisily received.  He said he had consulted Conservatives with a view of taking them  into his cabinet with   the understanding that they approve "of his  platform, at the wish of his supporters.   He criticized the remarks  of previous speakers and answered  questions   put to him by a hand  bill freely circulated yesterday regarding his past alleged hindrances  to labor.     Both on his rising and  taking   his seat half the audience  hooted and half shouted, the yells  making a dreadful noise and uproar.- Mr. Cotton wag well received.  Mr. DriseolV labor candidate," closed  fche meeting.  HOUSTON ENDORSED AGAIN  Workingmen's Mass Meeting  Kesolved; That this mass meeting of  workingmen hereby express its approval  of the action of the Labor Convention,  composed of delegates from the various  unions of the city, held in Fraternity  hall on the 25th instant, in endorsing  the candidature of John Houston in the  present political contest in this riding;  and that this meeting hereby pledges  Mr. Houston its support on the 9th of  June.   ^��� Alleged -Food Scandal.   Ottawa, June 6���[Special to The  Tribune].���In   the    house     today  Monk (Jacques Carfier) read an ai-  ticle from  the Canadian _ Military  Gazette, in which ifc was charged  fchat the Canadian government had  sent emergency food for the use of  tho soldiers in South Africa, and  for which $2 per "pound was paid  while ifc was only worth from 10 to  12 cents por' pound.   The article  insinuated that some of the authorities had received some consideration  for this.   Monk went on to say fchafc  Hatch Protose Food Co. had got its  food tested by fche department at  Kingston iu 1898, and when tho war  broke oufc the department had purchased aboufc $5000 worth of food  from a firm of chemists in Montreal,  which was of inferior quality.   A  tin was procured from this firm and  $3 was paid for it.   Ifc wa.s  labeled  "'Vicfcualine," and when   analyzed  contained only 17 per cent; of protose instead of 00 per  cent.    Dr,  Borden then proceeded to explain  that over a year ago Dr.   Devlin, a  leading physician in one of fche hospitals in   Montreal, came   to   him  with   recommendations   from    Sir  William   Hingsfcon   and   Professor  Rufctan wifch an emergency food.  Ifc was tested at Kingston, where  five men were fed for 30 days.  The  results were niosfc satisfactory, as  Mr. Mouk had  already  said aboufc  thafc test, and this   was the   very  same food that was sent to South  Africa.    Dr. Borden explained that  Dr. Neilson, director-general of the  medical branch of the department,  had made arrangements in regard  to the testing of food as well an fco  purchase of $4000 worth from Dr.  Martin's Offer to Smith.  Vancouver, June 0.���[Special to  The Tribune]���'Ralph Smith brought  to Vancouver today an important  affidavit to' be published, in the  evening papers tomorrow which  will show exactly premier Martin's  present connection with a certain  large corporation. Smith will nofc  give oufc any details tonight.  Later.���Smith'saffidavitissigned  by 15 witnesses to the effect thafc  Martin's offer to him to join the  cabinet included not only the agree-  ment'to drop the suit against the  New Vancouver Coal Company bufc  to give fchem a good title to all their  property. I '  Speakers Botten-Egged.  Victoria,1 June 0���[Special fco  The Tribune.] -When Perry Mills  and Jardine were leaving the  Metchosin meeting lasfc night they  found their buggy covered over  wifch rotten eggs by some of their  present hearers, and an attempt  was made to rotten egj_: the two  speakers. Legal prosecutions are  threatened on account of the affair.  The meeting was very boisterous,  Bizanfcson, the Martin candidate,  several times offering to go outside  and thrash the two speakers.  Nominations in Cassiar  Victoria, June 0.��� [Special to The  Tribune.]���Nominations in Cassiar  were: C. W. D. Clifford, John Irving, anti-Marfcinifce; James Stables,  Martiuitej Alex Godfrey, Conservative.    Titz to Fight Jeffries,,  New York, June ().���Fitzsim-  mons has finally decided to meet  Jeffries on the stiff terms imposed  by the champion, and the two may  seen in the ring together before  the Horton law ceases to exist.  When Fitzsimmons was. champion  and Jeffries came to him seeking a  match, he insisted that as champion he should have the long end  of the purse, win or lose. Jeffries  made the concession to get the  match, and won. Then when Fifcz-  simmons wanted another go, Jeffries simply reversed the proposition and said that he would fight,  but tlmt, win or lose, he must have  the bulk of -the money. Fitzsim-  mons said today he would post a  forfeit on the terms named by Jeffries.   A Wealthy Suicide.  New York, June (>.���George J.  Brown, a wealthy New York dry  goods man wifch au income of  $50,000 a year, committed suicide  today*  The above is a copy of the resolution whicli was submitted to a  mass meeting ofJ workingmen in the  opera house. It-was received with  a chorus of cheers' and round after  round of applause. And when the  chairman���G. Flemraiug���called for  the yeas upon it there went up a  shout which lef fc no doubt in the  mind of anyone as to where the  sympathies of the workingmen of  the Nelson riding are iu the present contest. With one voice the  great meeting declared for John  Houston, as the one candidate  whom they could safely trust, and  when the resolution was formally  declared carried by the chair, cheer  after cheer was sent up for candidate Houston.   .'.;";..  The meeting was called by the  officers of the Nelson'Trades & Labor., Council for the purpose of ratifying the action "taken by the  Trades and Labor j Convention in  endorsing candidate1 Houston. The  call was responded to iheartily, and  the result was that there were very  few vacant chairs on either floor of  the house. G. Fleming occupied  the chair, and with him on the platform were G. Thorpe, president of  the NelsOn Trades & Labor Council;  Charles Devore, C. A. Mackay, Robert Robinson, president of the carpenters' union,, and James Wilks,  secretary of tho Nelson miners' union. A feature of tho meeting was  the music furnished by the Nelson  Cifcy band, the members of the band  volunteering' their0 services, for  which fche officers of ihe Trades &  Labor Council desire to express  6heir thanks publicly."'* At fche*close  of the debate upon the resolution  the band contributed an overture'  which was heartily encored and re-  eponded to.  After fche chairman had explained  the object   of the meeting C. A.  Mackay,   who   was   president   of  Nelson Miners' Union during  the  earlier part of the trouble over the  enforcement of the eight-hour law,  was introduced.   lie made a strong  appeal to the friends  of organized  labor to support the candidature of  John   Houston.     He stated   that  candidate Houston was a man who  had   proven   his friendship  when  assistance   was most needed, and  was therefore deserving of support.  Referring to the candidature of Dr.  Hall, the .speaker said ho A'ery much  regretted that Dr. Hall had entered  the field as ifc might possibly result,  not in the election of Dr. Hall but  of the common enemy, Conservative  candidate   Fletcher.     Mr.  Mackay  urged" upon-his hearers- the-im~  portance of   easting a solid vote.  This   should   be determined upon  first, and when a choice was made  between the candidates the workingmen should vote for him to a man.  It.   Robinson, president   of  the  carpenters' union, was next introduced.    He first analyzed the three  political parties and demonstrated  clearly thafc of the three, the Provincial J'arty was tho only one that  had any claim upon the support of  the labor party, as nearly all of fche  legislation whicli had been secured  in the interest of wage-earners had  been advocated and advanced  by  its members.     He personally was  strongly    in   favor   of   candidate  Houston.   The attempt  had  been  made during tho campaign fco create  fche     impression    that    candidate  Houston had not been in favor of  fche inauguration of a nine-hour day  on municipal work.   This, however,  was childish, and could deceive no  one who was acquainted  wifch  Mr.  Houston,     either     personally     or  through his writings in The Triii-  unk   upou   labor   questions.      So  thoroughly was candidate Houston  in   sympathy   with   the   cause  of  labor that at a convention called by  the Trades and   Labor  Council  lie  had   been   unanimously   endorsed,  and fche object of tho present meeting was to accord the great body of  laboring men of the cifcy an opportunity   to  endorse the    action  of  the Trades and Labor convention.  In      the      present     contest:     he  thought the laboring men of Nelson  could not do better than accept; the  advice of their leader, Ralph Smith,  and return John  Housfcou as  their  candidate.   This in itself would do  a great deal in securing the standing of the labor organizations of  the district. He then moved the  resolution which appeal's atthe head  of this column.  Charles Devore, a member of the  barbers' union, seconded the resolution in a lively speech. He said  he appeared as a representative of  labor. The object of the meeting  was to select a candidate and make  him an.M. P. P.,'and the way he figured it was that John Houston was  the candidate. Houston had stood  by the unions, and although the  unions were all young Nelson was  now recognized as a union town.  Mr. Devore was applauded ;from  start to finish and he concluded by  urging his hearers to stand. shoulder to shoulder and snow the other  two candidates under.  James Wilks, secretary of the  Nelson miners' union, was the last  speaker. He opened^ by saying  that it gave hiih great~pleasure to  address the first political mass  meeting of the laboring men of  Nelson. It was a good sign to see  them taking interest in political  matters as workingmen, and not as  politicians, and it was a movement  which would grow. Mr. Wilks  made a convincing speech in favor  of candidate Houston. He said  thafc throughout the province Mr.  Houston was looked upon as the  champion of the eight-hour law.  For this reason, if for no other, it  became the duty of those who believed in shorter hours to see that  he was not defeated, but had such  a substantial majority as would  convince the legislature that there  must be no tampering with the  eight-hour law.  After the conclusion of Mr.  Wilks' speech, the resolution was  put and carried with a great demonstration, and the meeting  closed wifch the national anthem,  led by the Nelson City band.  worth lived as his mistress for many  years, and that the couple amused  themselves by buying children,  whom they passed off as their own.  Beckett was said to use the children to "bluff" his own family into  consenting to the payment of large  Hums of money to his mistress. Mrs.  Brinkworth was non-suited and  criminal proceedings may be commenced against her for trying to  pass off the children as Beckett's.  The executor of the estate sued is  Mr. Ernest Beckett, son of the man  who lived such a double life. He is  also a member of parliament and  owns one of the finest houses in  Piccadilly.  Killed in the Celebration  London^ June 7.���The morning  papers make ca sensation of the  death of captain Hercules Robinson, nephew of lord Rosemead, who  was knocked down by an omnibus,  his skull being fractured, on the  night of the Pretoria rejoicings.  He was taken to the hospital and  thence to a Bow street police cell,  where he died soon after.

States and Canada, ifc will be possible to send all classes of mail to  Dawson City and other places in  Yukon district. Heretofore only  ietter mail could be transmitted to  these points. ���  MANILA'S GREAT PROGRESS  A War Postponed.  Loxnox, June 0.���The struggle,in  South Africa* has had a salutary  effect. Jfc" has postponed it nofc  averted another war. Nearly six  weeks ago fche crisis between Russia and" Japan had reached a point  where hostilities were regarded, as  inevitable by the authorities of  both countries. A deadlock had  been reached over Japan's installation of a trader _ in* the best loca-,  tions afc Masampho, where the king  of Corea a year ago had given Russia fche right fco settle on condition  that she did nofc fortify the' place,  Japan refused to withdraw her  unofficial representative, and prepared to defend him-in his position,  The Japanese had the light fco expect; the support; of England under  the existing understanding in proceeding to extremities, but the Japanese government received, an intimation from London that Great  Britain would be unable to act;  while the war in South Africa continued. The note conveying this  intimation contained the advice  Ghat Jax>an should settle the matter with Russia in the best manner  possible. Thereupon    the   Tokio  government reluctantly withdrew  from its bellicose .attitude. War  upually breeds war, and even in  this case theie is reason to believe  that the conflict; between Japan  and Russia has only been postponed  for a brief season, for the spirit of  fche Japanese is more warlike than  ever.    Delegation of Paper Makers  New York, June 0.���A delegation of British .paper makers who  have come to America of tlio invitation of.the American 'Paper aud  Book Manufacturers' Association,  arrived today on fche Oceanic. The  parfcy was composed of Charles  Phillips, James Mars ton, H. Dux-  bury. Norman Duxbury, John  White, Charles Austin and L. Gan-  nelly. The purpose of these gentlemen iii visiting this country is  to inspect 'the machinery used in  the making of paper and pulp, and  to study the methods in A'ogue here.  The parfcy will visit Philadelphia,  Washington, Wilmington, Boston,  Worcester, Springfield, Holyoke,  Watertown, Niagara Falls and ail  of the large cities in the wesfc, concluding wifch a trip through Canada.  A London Scandal.  London, June 0.���A most remarkable case came up this week,  when Mrs. Brinkworth sued the  estate of the late William Beckett,  a former member of parliament,  for continued support of herself  aiul her alleged children. Mr.  Beckett; was the head of one of the  wealthiest; private bunking firms in  England, and eminently respected  in parliament and in society. It  now   transpires   that Mrs Brink-  Commerce Increases.  London, June 6. The report of  theBritish consul afc Manila, Mr.  Hartford, on the trade of the  Philippine islands in 1890 was  received^  at the foreign office on May 7.   He  says the collapse of the insurrection and the reopening of the ports  has  restored confidence   and  produced great commercial' activity.  The continuance of prosperity, however, was dependent upon circumstances, for, though the ports were  safe, the interior of the islands was  quite    'the      contrary,     and      it  will   depend   on     the     state     of  fche     country     whether     further  exports are.forthcoming.     He  explains that the immense size of the  country  renders  a   restoration of  law and order a difficult, task, as  the   influence of   the   leaders appears strong enough to prevent the  natives from surrendering.  Mr. Hartford then proceeds to  comment on the greatly enhanced  cost of living. inManiia, saying that  house rent, all kinds of labor and  everything connected with shipping, owing to the, immensely increased demand, command their  own prices. Improvements, he says,  are visible in every direction,  and he refers to the work of draining the town of ditches and stagnant pools, which he asserts in contemplation may entail anepidemie,  but "its adrantageTto posterity is  inestimable. Tho recovered land  of the city walls and moat will provide building sites which American  enterprise will know how to utilize, and though Manila will never  become a fashionable watering  place, it may become a great commercial power in these waters before the first quarter of a century  has passed.  Duke of Norfolk-Hurt  London, June 0.���The duke of  Norfolk, who is lieutenant-colonel  of the second battalion of fche Royal  Sus.sc* Yeomanry, now in South  Africa.Jias iw>fc with a serious accident by falling from his horse.  His hip was dislocated and he received other injuries. A dispatch  from lord Roberts says ifc occurred  during the operations before Pretoria. 1?he duke, it is added, is  progressing satisfactorily.  Transvaal's > Future Government.  London, June 7.���The Times, in  a leading editorial on the South  African situation, says: "First,  there must be an interval of military government, next a season of  administration as a crown colony,  and finally self-government, wifch  equal political rights for all white  men. For the first, lord Roberts is  the natural person fco be named as  rider, for the second, sir Alfred  Milner."   Haly Accepts Command.  Montreal, June (>.���A special  London dispatch says evening papers in that city say lieutenant-  colonel Haly has accepted the command of the Canadian militia.  ROBERTS' TROOPS RESTING  ����� ���' _  Boers' New Betreat"  London, Juno 7.���3:15 a.m.���Military operations in-South Africa are  apparently at a standstill. For a  day the tired troops of lord Roberts are resting and he is filling the  magazines and warehouses at his  new base, Pretoria, .preparatory  to a long chase after the retiring  Boers in the direction of Lyden-  burg. His cavalry are probably  seeking to intercept commandant  general Botha. ���  Some dispatches are to hand  whicli left* Pretoria on Monday,  while the "fighting was going on  outside the city. They come, by  way of Lorenzo Marquez, one of  them says:  "Towards the end of   the day,  when the British naval guns were  shelling the southern forts, a number of projectiles, burst, damaging  the suburbs.   All day armed Boers  have been  leaving Pretoria, going  east.   The greater part of the railway   rolling - stock   has   been   removed.    General Botha was;fighting an essentially rearguard action, "  his object not being to defend Pre-,  toria, but to delay lord Roberts until the railway switch had   been  cleared,*ahd the main part iof the.,  Boer army had started  to with-  draw.     The   British advance appears to have left open to the Boers -  the best line of retreat along the  railway." ��� ���������";/  Lydenburg, the district in to which  the provisions originally designed  for Pretoria have been diverted,  and where a cartridge factory has  been erected and reserve supplies  of all sorts are stored; is a volcanic  region of fertile valleys enclosed by  great ramparts of precipitous rock.  There are herds of cattle in the valleys and there is much native labor <  available for fortifying.  The Boers used both heavy and  light gun3 at Pretoria. What is  supposed to have been the last;  train out of Pretoria arrived-at  Lorenzo Marquez on Sunday evening. -The, passengers included l  numbers of foreign volunteers who  were leaving fche Boers and also fche  wives and children of Hollanders.  They described Pretoria as destitute of food and clothing. What  the Boer officials could nofc take, fche  nafcivos did.  Probably the most important  Boer army is at Laing's Nek, where  both sides are passive. *   *  General Rundle and general Brabant have withdrawn a little south.  General Baden-Powell has extended  martial law the Marieo and north  Lichtenberg districts. Shells were^  exchanged between the Boers and  British eighteen miles easfc of Mafeking on May 28.  A  dispatch  to the   Daily   Telegraph from Newcastle, dated Tuesday, describes the  Boers'  there  as"  -  an   unorganized   rabble,    without,  flour, meat or sugar.    Their Surrender is only a question of time.  JLorenzo Marquez correspondents  attach-significance to the number  of British warships in Delagoa Bay,  suggesting that they are there possibly in anticipation of aiding the  Portuguese in the event of disturbances on the Transvaal border.  There is a strong feeling throughout the country that striking honors should be conferred immediately upon lord Boberts, without  waiting until he returns fco England.  __  Situation in Pekin.  London, June 0.���A special dispatch from ^Shanghai, dated today,  says the members of a majority of  the legations afc Pekin, including  the members of the British legation,' are sending their families  away. It is also said that" several >  prominent .Chinese residents are  leaving the cifcy. There i* an unconfirmed report thafc two Russian  engineers have been' murdered at  Yu Chow Fu, northwest of Poit  Arthur, after their -wives had been  outraged. The total damage doue  to the Chinese.rairoads by fche Boxers is $5,000,000.  Gefman Navy Bill.  Berux, June IS.���In fche reichstag  today during the debate on the  navy bill, the secretary of the  navy, admiral Tirpitz, alluded to  the great development of German  interests in China as being likely to  necessitate a further large increase  in the navy. Later the reichstag,  by a vote of 15.'J to 79, adopted the -  first paragraph of the navy bill,  which fixes the strength of the  fleet.

The ladies of Nelson are taking  great interest in Mrs.  Kenly's lectures  on  the  new system  of   art  needle work.    Lectures -are being  given daily   in the parlor  of the  Hume Hotel and they are thronged  with members of the fair sex.   The  walls are hung with specimens of  Mrs. Kenly's art and also productions by her pupils.     They consist  chiefly of reproductions in  silk of  fruits and flowers.     They are wonderfully executed, and at a little  distance it is hard  to believe that  they were done with needles and  silks and not with the brush.   The  colors are exactly reproduced  aiid  the shading in   many = instances is  perfect.     Mrs. Kenly has 104 ladies  on her list here, and expects during  the week that she  has  still- before  her in Nelsou to" enlist several fresh  recruits. No charge is made for the'  lectures, and the exhibits are well  worth seeing, even by those who  are not and do uot intend to become  experts with the needle.  Deputy Returning Officers.

Richard I., Camr de Lion, ou liis way to  the Holy Land in HiJO, stopped at  I lenoa, took a fancy to the Hag of  thut republic, aud adopted it as the  national flag of England. The  (icuoese flag was the cross of Sfc.  George, the patron of Genoa, a red  truss on a white iield. When it  became tho flag of England, St.  (ieorge became the patron of  Kngland. At some period the  blue flag wifch the white saltier, or X  cross, became the flag of Scotland,  and Sfc. Andrew, who is said to have  .suffered inartrydom on a cross  of that shape, being the patron of  Scotland, this cross was called the  Hfc. Andrew's Cross. In or about  the year 1603, James VI. of Scotland, having inherited the realm of  England, adopted a composite flag  for his newly United Kingdom of  Great Britain and Ireland. The  composite flag consisted of the Sfc.  George's cross, wifch a narrow white  border, added to the blue flag of  Scotland wifch its white Sb. Andrew's cross.

'So long as there wa.s a hope of  agitation accomplishing anything I  m:is willing to devote myself to agitation.

T.  peared in the channel, named or  nicknamed it the Union Jacques,  which means James'Union. This flag  continued to be the flag of Great  Britain aud Ireland until soon after  the year 1801, when it was urged,  on behalf of Ireland, that she should  be represented in the, composition  of the national flag. Accordingly,  the red saltier of Ireland, commonly  called the Cross of Sfc. Patrick, was  laid upon the Sfc. Andrew's Cross,  leaving nothing of the latter visible  but a narrow white margin.  Now as to ensigns:   In former  days the fleets of the British navy  were  usually divided for tactical  purposes into three squadrons, the  red squadron, the white squadron  and the blue squadron.   This old  arrangement of  the three  squadrons is commemorated in the song,  Britannia, the Pride of the Ocean,  with its refrain, Three' Cheers for  the Red, White and.Blue.     The  ships of the white squadron were  distinguished by the white ensign,  which    is    the    original    English  or Genoese   flag, with   the   Union  Jack in the upper quarter next to  the halyard.    The red and the blue  squadrons  were   distinguished  by  red and blue flags respectively, each  with- the Uniou Jack occupying the  upper halyard quarter.    When the  tactical need of   three   squadrons  ceased all the ships of the royal  navy flew-the white ensign:   The  privilege of the white ensign was  also accorded to the Royal Yacht  Squadron, yachts not belonging to  the It. Y. S., and coastguard ships  fly the blue ensign.     The red ensign is the ensign of the British  mercantile marine.  Capital Authorized  Capital Paid up  Rest  , R. Wilkie, General Manager.  E.

WAR  PARAGRAPHS.  The Admiralty has been offered a  new submarine torpedo boat, the  invention of James Ellis Howard, a  llobart shipwright and nautical engineer. Its claim to be superior to  other inventions of the kind is  based on the fact that when the  torpedo is discharged it fastens itself by means of a suction4 arrangement againsfc a slap's bottom, and  has a time fuse, thus, giving the  submarine boat au opportunity to  get away. The boat itself is available in ail weathers,' can travel forward or backward without turning,  aud does nut havo to plunge when  siuking below the surface. Mr.  Howard is now in London, prepared  to put liis invention to the test, if  so desired, by fche admiralty.  A dance given by officers a night  or two ago was interrupted for  some time owing to the vagaries of  a wandoring horse, which entered  the ball-room and there expired in  the midst of fche guests. ���Friend,  Bloemfontein.  A private of the Royal Sussex  regiment, writing from Bloemfontein, says: '"Lord Roberts cjune up  here to inspect the fort; we are  making, and he said: 'Well, Sussex, which do you like best, this or  Brighton? aud went off laughing."  The method employed by the  -Boers-in wrecking the-railway tunnel at Laing's Nek is said to have  been novel. They started engines,  loaded with dynamite, into the  tunnel from each end. The locomotives came together with a terrific crash, the shock exploding the  dynamite, which completely wrecked the tunnel.  The following good story is told  by M. A. 1'. concerning colonel  Legge, the raiser and commander  of Kitchener's Horse: "When stationed in Ireland some years ago,  captain Legge (as he then was) was  ono day accosted by a beggar to  whom he gave the eleemosynary  sixpence. 'May the Lord preserve  your eyesight!' said the beggar-  maid. On being asked the reason  of this pious wibh she replied, 'For  the divvle a nobe have ye to hang a  pair of specs on!' Colonel  Legge is very short sighted  and ifc is related thafc on entering  the room afc Windsor in whicli the  queen was seated, when he went  down to receive his D. S. O., he  dropped his eyeglass. He dared  nofc stop to replace ifc in his eye, yet  without it he could not judge his  distance from her majesty. Taking, as it were, the bit between his  teeth, he knelt, extended his bent  arm, in the orthodox fashion, as a  rest for the queen's hand, wliich it  was his' duty to kiss���and found  himself two paces short! These he  had to cover by pushing himself  along the ground on one knee, to  the amusement of the queen."  0a the Way to Beira.

The  weak point.of the property has always been the  'administration of  the mine ; for this  the  responsibility is about   equally divided between   the    London    board    and  the   former    miue     management.  Last    November    a     new    mine  superintendent,    captain     J.    R.  Gifford, wak appointed-and who, in  the "short time he had control, satisfied himself of the ultimate value  of the property and the necessity  for vigorous exploitation.   This ex-,  ploitation discovered in the south  vein of the seventh level large bodies of valuable ore; in one place five  feet of ore gave 64 ozs. of silver and  2.0 per cent of copper.   These discoveries were made 200 feet below  the level of former stopes running  above No. 5 adit, and, to my mind,  are of the highest significance as indicating a future for the property."  It is a matter   of  congratulation,  meanwhile, that the Hall Miue& is to  have another chance, and we trust,  under better auspices.  expenditure  in^British Columbia,  includes the engineering and local  administration expeuse in connection with the Ymir, Enterprise, and  $2,500,000   other   companies,   for  which   the  $2,391,863   amount of ��1008 has been received.  $1,554,710.  The ��2040 for consulting engineers'  fees represents principally the balance paid to Messrs. Berwick, More-,  ing & Co. in accordance with their  agreement whicli has now terminated.    LARDEAU   MINING  NOTES.  The work of driving the 100-foot  tunnel on the Monitor and Mogul is  beiug prosecuted with vigor.  J. W. Westfall has received word  to double the working forces on all  the properties of whicli "he is superintendent. This means employment for a large number of men.  J. T. Lauthers has completed his  contract; on the E. G. About 80  feet of tunnel has been driven but  with no result up to the present for  the reason that a fault occurs right  at the poiut where the tunnel intersects the Vein. - Drifts will be driven  through this fault and the vein  caught up at another point. It is  expected that a good chute of ore  will bo exposed, as the surface  showing is a splendid one.  Baseball Pitchers.  There are many things in baseball which cannot be explained.    It  has never been definitely accounted  for   why   it is   that  the   pitcher  should have speed, curves and   everything else one day, and he may  be in fine   trim   and   his arm   feel  strong; the next be a failure.    Sam  Leever was discussing this peculiarity.   He said:   ''There are a ; great  many things whicli may cause this.  The difference in the balls surely,  cuts a figure. ��The.seam on one side  may protrude more,than it does on  others.    This would help a pitcher  who curves the ball a great deal.  Then,  again,   the    weather    may  have an effec^; on the ball.   For instance,   heat  will  expand it.     Ifc  may only be slight, but it'would'  have an effect on the pitcher beyond any doubt.   It might be help  to one and detriment to another,  that all depending on his style of  pitching.    I know that I have experienced this peculiarity.     Some  days when I pitch 1 am fast, have  a good curve and cannot be hit.  Two or three days later I may feel  just as good, and my arm be; just  as strong, but I do nob havo the  speed nor thecurve, aud  I am hit  hard.   I have always believed that  ifc is fche difference in the balls that  causes this."  A FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.

Vancouver World.  , The Nelson Miner devotes most of  its space to abusing one of the  opposition candidates, mayor Houston. The Miner resorts to a very-  unusual course in journalism, that  of offering to wager a certain sum  that Mr. Houston will not get a certain number of votes. The Miner,  which at one time was almost a  respectable journal, appears to  have descended fco a very low level  when it has to resort to betting,  ahvays a fool's argument, to sul>  stantiate its assertions.

The London & British Columbia  Goldfields report naturally attracted a good deal of attention  and it is satisfactory to find that  this company has done fairly well  during, the past year, although  some disappointment was expressed  when it wa? found that the dividend of 15 per cent recommended  by the directors was to bo distributed in the form of fully paid-up  shares in the Enterprise company.  So far as the price of the shares is  concerned the report has had little  or no effect, indeed, the tendency  has been rather in the downward  direction and the shares, which at  one time were up Lo nearly ��2  are now no better than 15s.

To tiik Electors ok tiik Nelson Riding :
Gentlemen—As the unanimous choice of a duly
constituted convention of tho supporters of the
Provincial Party in the Nelson riding. I am bo
foic jou as a candidate forrepiewontative of tho
Nelson ruling in tho nc\x provincial legislature.
In this connection I desire to solicit jour votos
and in|l\ienco in my behalf. Believing that
ever) manaspiiingfor membership should placo
himself on rccoidon tho main issues I tako this
oppoitunity of stating that I am in favor of legis.
l.ition upon the following linos:
1. Representation in the legislative assombly
should be based on population, with such modifications as w ill go e bporsoly sottled districts pro-
poi tioiiately larger ropresontation than cities and
tlnokh sottled farming distiicts.
2. All legislation should be goneral, and not
special. A beginning has beon made in this
dnection by the enactment of laws, under which
citioS can bo incorporated, companies foi mod,
and water records obtained. These should be
added to by the passage of a general railway in
coiporation act, and one giving municipalities
the same powers to acquire water records as are
now accorded privato.corporations.
3 Public lands should be kept for actual settlement, and land subsidies should not bo granted
to aid the building of railVruj s that when built
aa-p owned by coi porations.
, 4. Government ownership of railways is no
moie a theory than municipal ownership of
public utilities. Eo(.h htvvo biien tried and found
to work for thp public jtood when capably and
honcctlr managed ; but in making a commencement in government ownership of lallways in
this province, a section should be selected, in
which tho government would have a free hand,
and not in sections where competition would be
5. Prevention of tho landing in this province
of Chinese and Japanese laborers, and tho discouragement uf the cmplo} ment of those already
hcie by every fair means possible.
C Positive, not negative. laws should on}y tie
passed. If the pnnciplo of a laty is good, the
law should be eifectivo, Thp oight-hom day for
men vv oi king un^m'SJl sninti in motallifei ous mines
is now jjfpwAlly accoptod as legislation in the
right direction. I would oppose any legislation
thai, would repeal the penalty clause, or in any
other way impair the effectiveness of the law as
it now stands
7. To git e immediate effect, bj legislation, to
a. resolution similar to that known as thoHwloeh
u'solution, recently passed by the Dominion
Hou°e of Commons, w Inch prov ides for the puj-.
ment of fair wages on public woiks Qr vpritH
aided by government subsidies. &1J oontwotors
doing woik for eifhoi thn prvivi^oe or for municipalities should l?Q resulted topav labor tho rate
of wm;e& inking i}i II19 numiciuaUty or neighborhood in whjch the work is to bo done, the muiv
of wm;e& inking i}i II19 municipality or neighbor
hood in whjch the work is to bo done, the ntun
ber of hours to constitute a daj on all such work
to bo fixed h> statute.        -<

lepiosentauvtis of capital and labor, disputes
t hat too often aro far reaching 111 Uieir damaging
oil'oets on the general prosperity of whole com'*
mumticMind districts.

dustry which is benefiting, Uiicotjy or iprtlieetlly,

Uritnin, to sjslotiiatiertlly udvortiso all tho
n.itma! losoureos and scenic attinotions of tliti
provlnoo. >
11. Organi/cd nitiniciiialitie-. should bo given
tho control of their public t-cbuolx, leaving to tho
province lhe aire of public sohools in unorganized dlsti ids and tho maintenance of normal and
technical schools.
12. Ten 11k loads and tftills should be built and
liialnMlnud at public expense, und the cobt of
roads and nails to isolated mirifH nnd comminution should be boi no i»i part by the province.
13. Gcneiul hospitals should be under government control, and tho government nhauld hoip
maintain phj biennis in hpai.sely atitUeia sections
of the province.
14. The noyenimunt w power should ninko
qffloiftjaniifiuiwemont, for»v reni.oiiable tune bo-
fore the legislative assembly meet». of all pir>-
posed Jegisration. Were this done there would
be few or hautllj passed laws, laws whioh are too
often again >t the public interest.
