 DAILY EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  __��i-  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING JUNE 19-1900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  ONLY TURNERITES INVITED  The Vacant Portfolios.  Victoria, June 18.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���All the ministers  nnd local members of the legislature  have gone to Vancouver to attend  the political convention, although  some of the Island members refused  to attend. Messrs. Neill of Alberni  and Smith of Nanaimo wero not  present. The first named did not  receive an invitation, and Ralph  Smith, when he heard of this, wrote  to the conventionurs asking for an  explanation. The reply he received  was in effect that only those who  Avero in sympathy AA'ith the Turner  , government, Avhich went out of  \_JL'- power 1898, had been asked to  attend. Upon being thus informed  Mr. 'Smith promptly declined to  attend. It is eA'ident that there  must have been a misunderstanding  as many of those who were invited  ���are nofc Turnerites.  It is-understood that letters of  acceptance of portfolios' .have'been  received from Messrs Wells of  Northeast Kootenay aud A. W.  Smith of Lillooet, although Mr.  Munroe, the Chilliwack member  slated for the portfolio of chief  commissioner of lauds and Avorks ���  has 3*et to be heard from. Mr.  Smith will take the portfolio of  minister of mines, and > Mr. Wells  Avill act as provincial'secretary. It  is said that fche portfolio of minister  of mines Avas offered to Smith-  Curtis, bufc that gentleman declined  to accept.  TEXT OF THE RESOLUTION  Revolt Against Dunsmuir.

Ali members Avere sworn to  secrecy, but several points soon became public. The discussion avus  veiy spirited and several apologies  were made.  Several mainland members maintained a strong'opposition to the  Dunsnum- and Turner government.  Many refused to become members  of what would be like the former  Turner administration. The discussion Avound up Avith a speech  from Richard McBride, DoAvdney,  the tenor of Avhosa remarks Avas,  "You see how it H Mr. Dunsmuir,  and Avhy Ave cannot give you all the  support you a&k."  A resolution Avas passed that  Laurier should have raised the Chinese tax to $500 Avhile he AA'as about  it, should have included the Japanese and made provision for an act  similar fco fche Natal act.  Victoria; June 18���[Special to  The Tribune].���Victoria is sore.  Eberts aud Turner are looked upon  a. traitors to Dunsmuir. If Dunsmuir has nerve he will throw both  overboard and come out on top.  Refuses to lie Shelved.  ]?hii..ai3EI.j?hia, June 18.���Governor Roosevelt today gave oufc this  fifcafcenient: "In view of the revival  of the talk of myself as a vice-presidential candidate, I have this to  say; It is impossible to too deeply  express how touched I am hy the  attitude of those delegates avIio  have wished me to take this nomi-  nation. Moreover, it is not necessary to say how thoroughly I under  stand the high honor and dignity  of the office, an office so high  and so honorable that it is  well AA'orthy the ambition of  any man in the United States. But  while I appreciate all this to the  full, nevertheless I feel most deeply  that the field of my best usefulness  to the public and to the party is in  New York state, and if the party  should see fit to renominate me for  governor, I can in that position  help the National ticket as in no  other way. I very earnestly ask  that every friend of mine in the  convention respect my wish and  judgment in this matter."  DESCRIPTION OF TAKU FORT  , Armed With Modern Guns,  Washington, June IS.���It Avas  learned at the British embassy this  afternoon that there were tAvo  British admirals on the Pei Hoo  riA*er, admirals Seymour and Bruce.  Therefore Taussig's reference to the  arrival of a British admiral at Tien  Tsin does not mean necessarily that  Seymour has returned Avith his  foreign column. In vieAv of the international character of the attack;  upon and the capture of the Taku  forts', some interest may be felt in  the following statement prepared  by major Simpson in charge of the  military information bureau of the;  AArar department.  Taku is situated at the mouth, of  the Pei Ho on the southern bank of  the river about 65 miles from Tien  Tsin, with which it is connected  by a railroad. It is noted for the  three engagements that have taken  place between the Belgians and  Chinese. The Tien Tsin corps has  modern organization, drill and  arms and is stationed at the Taku  forts. Between Taku and Tien  Tsin, the centre of the defenses and  chief arsenal of Northern China,:  are permanent carnps Avhere there  are 30,000 troops, infantry and artillery, armed Avith. Mauser rifles  and Krupp guns.   The ea\ra!ry also  ���f"illil'K._JVIaiUj��AK.�����<��'l"ino&��� _ ..    "Jfliaoo  troops have been well instructed'  for 12 years by foreign officers.  The fortifications consist of three  forts, a large one on the light bank  and the two- smaller ones on the  left. All fche forts are armed with  numerous guns of the most varied  system and caliber. In tho construction of all forts of the second  zone the muddy clay soil of the  eoasfc was used, Avhich during the  dry season becomes cracked aud  crumbles very easily, and~fche garrison is continually making repairs.  Iu Taku are fche materials for closing up the mouth of the Pei Ho.  All the coast fortifications have  mines.  AFFECTING LACROSSE MEN  TAKU  FORTS  BOMBARDED  Place Captured.  Berlin, June 18.���The German  consul at Chefoo telegraphs that a  Japauese__tp_rpedp _boafc from_Taku_  has brought the following: "The  Chinese laid torpedoes in the Taku  river and collected troops from  Shan Ilei liwan, The foreign commissioners assembled ou the Russian, flagship and addressed an ultimatum to the commanders of the  Taku forts, summoning them to  withdraw their troops before 2  o'clock on June 17fch, At 1 a. in.  on June J 7th the guns of the forts  opened fire, to Avhich the Russian,  British, French and Japanese warships replied. The bombardment  lasted soveii hours," "  Later a semi-official dispatch from  Chef oo announces that the Taku  forts had beeu captured after a  combined attack by fche foreign warships. " Three men on the German  Avursthip litis Avere killed aud seven  Avounded. The dispatch added that  the foreign settlements of Tien Tsin  Avere being fired into by the Chinese. When the dispatch left nothing had been heard from the German detachment sent fco Pekin, or  from fche German legation.  Chinese Immigration Bill.  Ottaava, June 18.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Laurier has given  notice of the folloAving resolutions  in regard to the act respecting  Chine&o immigration now before the  house : (1) That a tax of one hundred dollars shall be imposed on  every person of Chinese origin. (2)  That the person in command of, or  in charge of any vessel or vehicle  bringing Chinese immigrants into  Ganada, shall be personally liable  to her majesty for the payment of  the taxes of any such immigrant  carried hy suck vesseL  Various Sporting Items.  The lacrosse club meeting did not  take place last night, having being  postponed till tomorrow night after  the practice match.      A number of  players avIio have not manifested  any desire to play up to the past  feAV days are beginning to take an  interest in the game and expressed  their desire to attend the meeting,  hence the adjournment. Tomorrow's  game should be an  interesting exhibition and   every player   is  requested to be on the grounds as  early as possible after 0:30 o'clock.  The club hopes that all citizens interested in Canada's national game  will turnout io witness  the match  and to indicate by their presence  that the efforts of the lacrosse men  to provide entertainment have not  been ignored. One of the city bands  will be requested to help the club  out by attending the game and rendering a brief program. The lacrosse  club has forwarded a hurry order  for an outfit of McBriarty sticks.  These are strung with" clock cord,  which   by reason of  its softness,  pliability and strength has superseded cat gut to a large extent in  the manufacture of lacrosse sticks.  After   the. match, as  has already  been stated, a club meeting .will be  held for the purpose of electing a  manager and a field captain.     Dan;  McNichol seems to be generally regarded as the most, desirable man  available for the captaincy, while  several rustlers are mentioned in  connection with the managership.  The,club leaves on Friday morning  for Greenwood to play the home  team there in the afternoon and re"-  turns on Saturday morning.  The new ball ordered by the football club has arrived and with it  several copies Of the latest football  rules. The changes in the latter  are. comparatively insignificant.  When the goal posts vare erected  the members of the club should trv  . i-��- _   if possible to practice kicking on  goal. This is one of the most important features of team play, *and  one in whielf the club needs lots of  practice. The forward play is none  too strong and in all practice  matches up to date the fonvards  have been lamentably weak, as Avit-  ness the fact that not a single goal  has yefc been scored unless the  record -was broken lasfc night. A  forward who can shoot sAviftly and  accurately will frequently win the  match for his side and excellent  training iu this direction ean be  secured by kicking on good nightly.  The other sporting organizations  need nofc fear that this will interfere Avifch tlieir practice for the loot-  ball men will play on the grass plot  at the east end of the grounds.  There are in * Nelson at least a  dozen quoiters who,can handle the  iron rings with almost expert skill  and perhaps tAvice the number who  play more or less constantly." Quoit-  ing is a fascinating pastime as  every reader who has followed it  aviII testify. A tournament among  the local quoiters would be of more  than usual interest and could be  arranged wifch comparatively little  trouble. Tub Tbihunk Avould be  pleased to publish the vieAA'S of any  of the local quoiters on this point,  or to assist in arranging a series of  contests to determine the standing  of the local enthusiasts.  The date of the baseball club's  trip to Spokane is rapidly approaching and the nine is ready for the  games. The players are flt for any  game, and will, at the very least,  give Spokane a stiff fight. From  the information aA'ailable regarding  the Spokane team it Avould seem  that Nelson's prospects for Avinning  aro really bright. A number of enthusiasts have" expressed their intention of accompanying fche Nelson  nine, but comparatively, fcav have  notified manager Waterman to this  effect. It is important that he should  know how many Avill take in the  excursion, as fche railroad rates are  materially effected thereby. The  moral is that if you are going to  Spokane wifch the ball team drop a  post card or send Avord in some Avay  to the ball team.  The management of the gun club  has heard from two of the teams  invited to participate in the Dominion Day sports here. Cranbrook  is celebrating at home and must  boost their own show while the Silverton club is crippled through the  absence of a number of the members.     This  leaves  Fernie   to be  heard from. The local club Avill  have its rhoot on one of the celebration clays regardless. A program  of sweepstakes, etc., will be arranged  for the day. /,  The baseball management has  another first-class attraction on the  tapis. A telephone message avus  received from Spokane yesterday  asking if Nelson could give a game  on the 29th or 30th to the Leland-  Stanford University team from  California. The Stanford nine is  well known to be one of the fastest  aggregations on the Pacific coast  and their appearance here Avould  be a genuine treat, tip- every baseball enthusiast iii' the .city. The  financial conditions' attached are  that the Nelson team pay the expenses of the Stanfords fz*om Rossland here and return with'a douceur  to the Spokane people who are  under the expense of bringing* the  Stanfords all the way from California. The executive of the club  will consider the proposition.  PROGRAM OJFjAND SPORTS  Dominion Day Celebration.  John J.

June 19.���3 a.m.���Lord  Roberts, according to a' Boer dispatch from Machadorp, sent a message to commandant general Botha  on June 13tli suggesting disarmament and complimenting the  bravery of the burghers. It Avas  pointed out that the surrender  Avould be without dishonor to the  burghers and would prevent much  suffering. -General Botha-asked for  five days armistice in order to confer and consider. Lord Roberts  consented to five days, finally general Botha declined to accept the  proposition and hostilities were  reneAved.  The Boer commandoes are retiring on Middleburg, followed by the  British cavalry and artillery, occasional {-hells reaching the rear  guards. TJie Boors are destroying  the bridges behind them, carrying  off provisions and cattle, leaving  the country barren.    '  Advices from Machadorp says  the Boers have an abundance of  arms and ammunition Avith dynamite and oxen, and that they aro  preparing heavy Avagon trains for  a retreat to the Lydenburg district  where tho chiefs, notwithstanding  rumors to fche contrary, are determined to make a stand.  The Boers continue to Avork the  Barbertown mines, says a dispaccli  from Lorenzo Marquess, and there  are eight carloads of bar gold valued at five million sterling wifch  president Kruger.  Mr. Steyn, in his proclamation,  declared the Free State still free  and independent, and says the fact  that the army is yefc in fche field  renders lord Roberts' annexation  contrary to international laAV.  In a dispatch to the Avar office  from Pretoria, dated yesterday,  lord Roberts says thafc general  Baden-PoAvell has just arrived  there.   League (Jaaies.  Minneapolis 5, Kansas Cifcy 4.

The - members present at last  night's council meeting Avere aldermen McKillop, Hall, Irvine and  Morrison. In the absence of mayor  Houston alderman Irvine was  appointed chairman.  A deputation from the Nelson  Laborers' Protective Union, consisting of Richard Pete, president,  George Bayne, treasurer and A. TV.  McPhee was present and presented  a petition setting forth the union  scale of wages for rock men and  hand drillers as folloAVS: hand  drillers, $3.25, eight hours; muckers  $3, nine hours. The council Avas  requested to give its kind attention  to the matter. The question was  not gone into at any length,' the  matter being referred to a special committee consisting of aldermen Morrison, Irvine and Wilson.  The resolution was made by aldermen Hall and McKillop. ��,  Macdonald & Johnson wrote  applying again for the return of  the $2200 deposited with the city  as a guarantee of the Nelson Electric Tramway Company's good intentions.  Alderman McKillop said the  council must havo a report from  the city engineer as : to the conditions of the by-law haA'ing been  complied Avith. The cifcy clerk Avas  authorized to notify the company  to this effect.  Several residents of block 47 A  addition petitioned for an extension  of the Avater main on Houston  street 300 feet west. A similar request for an extension in block 19  Avas read. Both Avere referred to  the board of Avorks.  G. Bell & Co. asked permission to  erect a warehouse iu rear of their  store, agreeing to conform with the  fire limits by-huv. The application  Avas granted.  ��� Manager Waterman of the Nelson baseball club appeared before  the council wifch the - request that  ��h&ejub be permitted to fence the,  athletic/gfKlK?1 '.dlyin nj^peJihaJ; au  pay something. Gates would be  placed across the street in order  not to interfere with the right-of-  way. He suggested thab when  other athletic clubs desired to  charge for games fchey should pay a  small percentage toward the cost  of fche fence until it should be paid  for.* .  Aldermen Hall and Morrison  moved that the baseball club be  given leave to fence the grounds  controlled by the city. This Avas  carried, fche understanding being  that the ball club assumes all  responsibility in connection with  the matter.  J. Williams applied i'or permission to erect a temporary structure  on Ward street to be used while  building operations are in progress  at the corner of Ward and Baker  streets. Referred fco the board of  Avorks.  ���Aldermen Arthur and-Wilson and  firechief Thompson Averp appointed  fire Avardeus for the balance of the  year.  On motion of aldermen Hall and  Morrison the mayor or acting mayor  avus authorized fco collect $100 as a  guarantee thafc fche English-American circus Avould leave fche recreation grounds in- tho r same condition as afc present.  Bylaws 0<> and (57 to fix the rate  of assessment for interest and sinking fund on debenture is-nics* were  finally considered and passed.  The bylaAvs to raise $15,000 by  debentures for Avater works extension, $20,000 for improving fche electric" light system, $20,000 for fche  improvement of streets and $($000  for the purchase of a road-making  plant wero brought in according to  the notice given at the previous  meeting and given two readings.  Alderman Morrison officiated as  chairman in committee of fche Avhole.  The debentures Avill be issued payable in 20 years Avifch interest afc -U  per cent.  By-law 73, on streets and side-  Avalki and to regulate fche traffic  thereon, was introduced and given  a first reading.  The council Avenfc into committee  of the Avhole on by-laAV 05 fco regulate the proceedings of the council  and define the duties of* municipal  officers, alderman Hall in the chair.  Iu the course of the reading a  clause relating fco duties of a eom-  mitttee ou fire, lights and Avater  was read. This elicited the opinion  from alderman Hall that fche city-  council should be increased numerically on the ground that fche Avork  devolving on the council had  in  creased considerably during recent  years. The clause was allowedto  stand. The various clauses were  gone over in committee and further  consideration postponed.  Aldermen McKillop and Hall  moved that alderman Irvine be  acting mayor during the absence of  mayor Houston.    Carried. 0  The council concluded its session  at 11:45, making the session one  of the longest of the year.  DEATH BLOW TO M'INNES  Even His Ministers Assent.  Vancouver, June 18���[Special to  The Tribune].���Contrary to general  expectation, the opening session of  the convention of the late oppo->  sition of the provincial house was  an   exceedingly    unanimous    one.  There were very few members of  the opponents of ex-premier Martin  absent,   and   every   one   present,  from   premier   Dunsmuir  and his  two     cabinet   ministers,   already  chosen, doAvn to the end of the long  list of private members, signed a  resolution addressed to the government at Ottawa, saying that it was  in the interests of the province of  British   Columbia   that    governor  Mclnnes  should   resign.     Captain  Tatlow-of Vancouver gave out this  afternoon fchafc. he intended to move  this resolution just as soon as the  convention convened at 4 o'clock.  It was a tentative resolution proposed to test the feeling of the  members. Ex-speaker Booth Avas  in the chair this afternoon, and ex-  minister Pooley Avas the most aggressive supporter of the resolution.  After an hours' discussion Dunsmuir, Turner and Eberts retired,  believing that their oaths" of office  prevented them from further participation. When everyone else had  agreed to the resolution objection  was made to the ministers not signing also, so the latter yielded to the  lobbying solicitations of Mr. pooley  and re-entered the room. The,three  ministers then signed rfche~ petition  for fcnp- ��senv*vnl o�� the-governor al-  him.  -_   CHINA FICHJSJHE WORLD  i  Stories of the Battle.  London, June. 19.-3:30 a.m.���  China declared war against the  world wheu the Taku forts opened  fire on the international fleet. The  accounts of what took place are  unsatisfactory, the only semi-official  information being the dispatch  received at Berlin from Chefoo:  The unofficial narratives, coming  by Avay of Shanghai,* vary Avidely  and bear internal evidence of supplementing the main facts Avifch  guessAVork. - Ono dispatch says fche  Yorktown participated in the bombardment. Another asserts that'  American marines formed part of  the   storming    force   of   the   two  thousand. An -Associated   Press  dispatch from Chefoo, dated yesterday afternoon, says:  "The forts on both sides of the  Taku are occupied. The Chinese  opened fire unexpectedly. The  casual lies to mixed forces were as  foiloAvs-:  Killed���British 1, German *A, Russian 16, French 1.  Wounded���British 4, German 7,  Russian, 15, French I.  The Chinese torpedo boats Avere  seized.  The Shanghai correspondent; of  tho Daily Mail, telegraphing yesterday, says: "The forts began firing  in obedience to orders from Pekin,  conveyed in n personal edict of the  empress- doAvager by advice of Kang  Yi, president of the ministry of  Avar. Several Avarships were struck  by shells from 12-inch guns from  the fort. The heavy Russian losses  AA'ere due to the bloAving up of a  magazine at Manshur. Four hundred Chinese are reported to have  been killed. The Chinese when retreating fell into the hands of the  Russian land forces."  The Daily News has the following from Chefoo: "Tavo of the forts  Avere bloAvn up. The thirty-tAvo  AVai-ships at Taku aggregated tAvo  hundred thousand tons and carried  more than three hundred guns."  "The failure of admiral Seymour's  column and ifcs retreat to Tien Tsin  increases, ifc is presumed, fche peril  of the legations in Pekin, Avhich is  still isolated, although Shanghai  forwards Chinese rumors fchafc the  legations AA'ere attacked by mobs  Avho Avere mown down by machine  guns, and also that the members of  the legations were massacred.  MOVEMENTS OF WARSHIPS  Fears for the Marines.  Washington, June 18.���Owing to  the   eccentric   action   of the telegraph wires and cables which interferes Avifch admiral Kempff communicating AA'ith the navy department   and also  with his superior  officer, admiral Remey, at Manila,  the navy department may give admiral Kempff an independent command in the interests of the quick _  dispatch of business.     There AA'as  no friction whateA'er between the  two admirals, and the commander-  in chief on the situation, admiral  Remey, has lent due support to ad-'  miral Kempff during the crisis. The  Yorktown was sent from Shanghai to  Chefoo by admiral Remey Avithout  express instructions from the department,  and has0serA*ed a very  good purpose here.   Ifc is supposed  at the navy department that admiral Remey has pursued a similar  course with respect to the gunboat  Concord,   the   sister   ship   of   the  Yorktown,   Avhich,    according    to  press dispatches, sailed from that  place under sealed orders, presumably for China.    Ifc was  said  at the  department that ho instructions to  that effect; had gone forward from  here, so it is supposed that admiral  Remey is again acting  voluntarily  to strengthen the hands of admiral  Kempff.  Great apprehension exists at the  navy department as to the  fate of  the United States marine guard  of  fifty-six men, Avhich was landed at  Tien Tsin and despatched by rail to  Pekin before the railroad was in-^  terrupted.   They went forward to   "  Pekiu     under     an    authorization  granted by the Chinese government  to the United 'States minister afc  Pekin in common Avifch the other  ministers to employ a naval  guard.,  afc the legation. -Just before   the  wires from Pekin  were cufc,  word  came that minister Conger had de-  Xt'uril flia _i_gai_njiL tXti_i* __>,*^_\_   wa.��-.��� ->  as a guard at the Methodist compound. This is au enclosure of  some ten acres, situated neatly a  mile distant from the legation,  Avhere many missionaries and tlieir^  families as Avell as a large number  of native Christians* are believed to  have taken refuge.

Its members  allowed their   organization   to be  made the tool of ex-premier Martin,  and the majority of them'were consenting parties to   the -scheme to  in British Columbia to the gratification of the personal ambition and  spleen    of  Joseph    Martin.     The  province declared against   Joseph  Martin, and against the lieutenant-'  governor in.so far;as he abused the  trust reposed in him in placing the  government of the province in the  hands of a political adventurer.    If  the, reports which come from Ottawa mean anything, the lieutenant govei nor will follow ex-premier  Martin into   retirement.' and   the  protests of the Martin minions will  be as powerless  to retain  him as  they will be to affect the choice of  bit. successor.   Iv   any   doubt   lingered   in the  minds of the authorities- at Ottawa,  whether or not lieutenant-governor  Mclnnes   should   be   dismissed,   it  was dispelled last evening when the  wires carried east the pronuncement  of the "Vancouver convention.,Lien-  tenant-governor Mclnnes now occupies the remarkable position  of  an   ollicer of  the ciown  who has  been  censured  by   two successive  legislatures.    When  he saw fit to  dismiss   the   Semlin    government  after he had been  assured that ifc  had  control  of the legislature, his  action   was   condemned   by every  member   of   the   house   with   tho  .-.ingle exception of tiie man  whom  ho had entrusted with the formation of the new government.    Thi;-.  condemnation was  emphabixed at  the Vancouver convention yesterday.   The men  who mot iu Vancouver yesterday constitute a veiy  large  majoiity  of  the members of  the legislature which will meet next  inonth, and included premier J)uus-  muir and  tho  two  ministers who  have accepted, office under him.   It  is doubtful if anything like a parallel to this situation can be found in  the history of auy portion of the  British  Empire.     The  representative of the crown calls upon a member   of the legislature  to form a  government,   and    after   securing  two colleagues the next act of the /  crown's" chief adviser is to sign a  memorial to the federal authorities  chief adviser." That lieutenant-  governor Mclnues will go is now a  certainty. The question is what  will go next?  r*. , z_. ���*��-   .   ��� ~    '-*   ��� _t ._, -  At a meeting of the shareholders'  of the Granite Gold Mines, Limited,  held in, Londou  on  Tuesday May  2Sth, ifc was agreed to increase the  capital of the company to ��200,000  by the creation of 80,000 new shares  of ��1 each.    The new  shares will  rank pari passu with the existing  shares, and may be issued and disposed of by the directors as if such  shares were part of the shares in  the   original   capital.      Alexander  MeNab, the ehainnau of the company, who presided, explained that  the   increase   had   been   rendered  necessary by the purchase of the  Poorman.     The Granite   company  did not possess sufficient capital to  purchase the Poorman property, so  obtained assistance from the parent  company, the Duncan Mines, Limited, and it was to jepay this advance that the new shares* would be  issued.    The chairman gave an exhaustive account of the work done I  on the various properties owned by  the company and after the resolu-  tion  authorizing   the  increase   of  capital had been adopted the meeting adjourned.

There, by the sluggish Ganges, holy  und calm, he will breathe air heavy  l~_e    with the crushed  Mowers   of   the  I 1    offerings, move amid the stare of  idols and tho crowds of worshipers  from every quarter of India, bowing  to the phallic symbals and staring  heedlessly at temple carvings so obscene as to havo required exemption  by government from the operations  of. the laws against foul imagery  and decoration, watch the multitudes  bathe in  the sacred   stream  and worship its green waters, look  on   fche groat pool of some deity'-*  sweat in which other devout souls  bathe with milk and flowers" and  yellow powder for offerings, and on  whose bank a priest is teaching a  small boy to read the Suastras with  stately bowings and gesticulations.  Xearly naked   priests lie   by   the  roadside  or wander  past.    Sacred  cows    roam   through   the   temple  courts.    Monkeys swing.down from  tiie  trees and grin  at some stone  idol, which wifch leering face daubed  wifch red paint grins back stolidly.  l<\ora    the   river   bank   rises   the  f-moke of the funeral pyre, and over  a sewer's mouth the dhobies are afc  work, and tlieir clothes, washed in  tiie foul and holy stream, are spread  ou the banks to dry.   There is a  ceitain levity   and irreligiousuess  about it all to a western mind, but  it is the  religion   of India  in  its  holiest city.

T.  world that is nofc ours, are here,  where these people from every state  of the greafc empire come to worship their 300,000,000 gods the 300,-  000,000 gods of their fathers.  And yefc over fchis.people as numerous as their gods, a foreign queen  rules "with less than 70.000 soldiers  of her own race to support her  .sovereignty, is it a popular sovereignty ? Lord John Hamilton, the  secretary-for-fndiay-says" ife is"not.  "I am afraid," he declared in parliament, "that whatever xve do our  government will never be popular  in India." At this loyal Hindus and  their people hold up their hands  and protest their love and loyalty.  But popular the British government is not aud popular it never  will be. It holds India not by the  popularity-of its rule, excellent and  salutary, but by reason of the  dissensions of India within���racial,  national, linguistic, religious���and  by reason of that moral superiority  and benefit of righteous service  which constitute title by the will of  God.  * ''India is a very curious place," as  the enlightened Paget, M. P*, remarked to Orde. Prom Strickland's  point of view, very few people  know anything aboufc ifc. The mutiny taught ^ a great many people  who thought they knew thafc they  were very ignorant. England  thinks the handsome Sikh soldiers  can be trusted anywhere, and one  finds them policing the streets of  Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore, Pine-looking fellows and  trusty they are. So are many native regiments, Moslem aud Hindu.  And with 140,000 such soldiers,  stiffened by 70,000 wifch white faces,  India is equipped, Moslems constituting the garrison on Hindu soil  and Hindus holding forts among  Mohammedans.

He was born February 22nd, 1811,  at Tunbridge Wells. He joined  the 84fch regiment, 1858. His advance from the ranks was rapid  and in 1880 he was made a colonel.  He was aide^dercamp to the general  commanding at Malta, 1801-09;  aide-de-camp tt> the" general commanding in Canada, 1870-0. He  took part in the Egyptian expedition, 1882, and in the intelligence  department, war office, 1882-4. - He  commanded the second column in  the Hazara expedition in 1888,. and  was mentioned in the despatches,  for which services, as well as in  Egypfcj lie was decorated.  The Upraisiag in China.  Some fifteen or twenty years ago  a foreign company had a contract  for building a railroad in China. It  built inward from the coast twelve j  miles, when the Chinese government revoked the contract, setfcied  the damages and tore up the railroad. That was because the line of  the  road   was to   run through   a  burial place of the Chinese, aud so  profound is the reverence of the  Chinese for the graves of their ancestors, and so deep-seated is the  superstition that their sleep, ean  still be disturbed, that the government saw it must either retrace its  way or face a rebellion. It is  possible "that fche present clash over  there is not because the railroad  track runs over the gardens and  through the villages of the people,  but that it trenches upon the graves.

exciting experience in the rapids below the ship-

and fell asleep n short distance below the docks.
The current gradually carried the boat toward
ihe rapids, and the craft was moving rapidly
toward swift, water wheii their plight was noted
by the oillc-rs of ■ tbe'-steainer Nelson. The
steamer put out fromilhe wharf and hurried
down, sounding her whistle loudly meanwhile,
llcfore the men awoke they were in the rapids

the boaters managed to gut their craft ashore

Although the scheme for tho reconstruction of the Hall Mines has
been carried .by a -large majority,
and no fiuther opposition is expected, several shareholders—especially
those iu Ireland--are noc all at all

shareholders expressed themselves
