PRICE FIVE CENTS  BARRIGADEDJ_PEKIN CITY  Situation No Better.  London, June 12.���5 a.m���The  last message out of Pekin to reach  London left there yesterday morning at .1.1 o'clock going by way of  the Russian telegraph through  Manchuria, tho Tien Tsin lines being  cut.    It is as follows :  "General Tuug, a Mohametan, extremely hosbileto foreigners, arrived  this morning and had a long audience with prince Tuan, father of  the heir apparent, who is seemingly  friendly to the Boxers. Prince Tuan  lias been appointed head of the for-  i igii oflice over. jirince  Ching, who  ,  is friendly towards foreigners.  \ "The dispatch of more marines  rwns in response to a telegram from  the ministers to the consuls at  Tien Tsin for additional troops.  Conveyances have left Pekin to  meet troops coming by the Iirst  train. ^  "The arrival of the empress dowager lias rendered the city some-  avhat more quiet than it has been  recently. The Protestants have  erected a barricade before the building in which they have taken refuge and they have a small guard.  Tho. Catholics are ��� concentrated  north of the cathedral, under the  protection of a French guard of 15.0;  "'���'men who will hold out to the end.  1 am convinced that Pekin is safe.  Ab; Tien Tsin, the viceroy finally  consented to furnish transportation  for a relief force  of 400  under an  '���'���������American commander. The partial  restoration of the railway is ex-  Tieeted to be effected by tomorrow.  IWpre massacres of Christians are  icported."  Shanghai, under yesterday's  d ite, cables that there has beeu  ���-.facet fighting in Pekin since early  Sunday aftei noon. The Russians  aio making large purchases of  <canned goods afc Shanghai, and  everything points to an outbreak  of hostilities. All British mission-  iiiieswill probably be oidcred to  lcturn quickly to the treaty ports.  Tho Shanghai conespondent of  the Daily Telegraph in a dispatch  bHVS:  "'The reports from the Vun Nan  Fu district say that the French  minister has telegraphed that a  ci isis is imminent, and he is advising all foreigners to evacuate Ytm  IS an."  All telegrams indicate that the  situation has not in the least improved. On the contrary the disorder has spread from the neighborhood of Pekin to the capital itself,  v hit'll is growing turbulent in anfci-  foieign demonstiatious. In addition to the burning of the Pekin  club, the secretary of the Belgian  legation has been roughly handled  in the streets. Hostile crowds continue to demonstrate against the  legations. Two thousand international troops ate approaching the  cifcyr and the advance guiud is due  to*arrive today (Tuesday). _ _  --The United States, iiccoiding to  despatches from Copenhagen, has  given a hearty adhesion to the  scheme for a European demonstration. The Russian minister in  Pekin, who also acts as the envoy  ol Denmark, is credited with having sent a despatch to bhe Danish  fmeign office to the effect that a  ^dei? onstration has been planned,  under the leadership of England  and Russia, in which all the groat  powers and several ^of the smaller  will take part.  " The latter are not called, upon  to send troops as there are enough  on the spot, but they are to be  asked to delegate tho right to hoist  their Hag to the great powers in  order that a demonstration may be  made or a battle fought under flags  of all Europe. Japan and the  United States have been informed  v and agreed to  the arrangements."  Her Majesty's Thanks..  Montreal., June- 11.���Her -Majesty, queen, Victoria,   has, cabled  her grateful  thanks for Canada's  congratulations on the fall .of Pre-  Paris, consequently injuring the  Liberal party by his pro-  French sentiments, which ~ he  seems to utter ever chance he has.  The Paris correspondent of the  Daily Chronicle says: "Mr. Tarte,  in his lecture at the Canadian section last week, conveyed the impression that the province of.  Quebec was anxious to adopt the  tri-color. ������ In commenting uponMr.  Tarte's indiscreetness, the correspondent of the Chronicle says it  would be a good idea for Mr. Tarte  not to forget that he has come to  France as a representative of the  Dominion of Canada and not of the  province of Quebec.

Kaslo, June 11.���Some excitement was caused in town today by  the report that four feet of, clean  ore had been struck on the Ruth  hill. W. McAdam of the Paystreak,  who came down from Sandon, confirmed the news and says that it is  the best find that has been made  this summer. Mike Kerlin is the  lucky man. He owns the Mascot,  which, with the Surprise, he located  in 1892 along with Alex Waddell.  These two men made the first locations on Ruth hill, and during; the  past1 few years they have done considerable work on their claims.  Last June they bonded the property  to George Alexander, the local representative of the Ruth, the Jackson mines, the Kootenay Ore Company and other English concerns.  However the bond was thrown up  as nothing of value could be found.  The Hope, one of the Ruth company's claims, adjoins the Mascot,  and the new discovery was made so  close to the side lines that it will be  necessary to have a survey made in  order .to find out on which .claim  the outcrop is. It seems as if the  ledge will be found on both claims.  There is a curious story related  of this find. Strange as it "may  seem the top of the ledge was shot  off and ore blown out by the  graders on the Ivanhoe trail yet nobody noticed it at the time. Ker-  lin's partner is now in the Kettle  river country where he is developing some copper claims. He has  been sent for sO that extensive development, work may be planned.  Last week a number of men came  down from the Slocan Star mine  and considerable comment was  heard as to what this indicated.  Some people feared that the Byron  N. White Company  general superintendent of the  Methodist church of Canada, lias  intimated to Bay of,Quinte conference, of which he is still a member, he will be prepared to engage  in the work of his church in any  part of the Dominion within the  next month. (  GLOOMY  VIEW_0F CHINA  r     Worst Yet^ to Come.  London, June 12.���The Daily Express publishes the; followiug from  St. Petersburg:      J  "Prince Ochtomsky,"editor of the  ."    '���-������.��� ��� ,,\ ���  Viedomosti, who is a great Chinese  authority, says that" the Boxers are  brie of the oldest jsecret societies  with Which the. modern society of  China is honeycombed. They have  been wOrking against foreigners for  several generations! The Boxers  will be put; down, but it is feared  that a great'��� number of men, women  and children will be murdered before it can be effected. The prince  says thepresentdifficulty is of a temporary nature and cannot be compared with the great upheaval that  is still to come.   The prince says:  "The awakening )p�� the Chinese  will be terrible. All those warlike  instruments of destruction, the use  of, which they^ are ' being taught,  will probably be turned against the  Europeans themselves,- The Chinese, have no featv'of death, and  make excellent soldiers under European instructions." The' prospect  for Europeans is"';" not pleasant.  Russia has not too many troops at  her disposal, considering that she  has -riot only to guard, a long  stretch of railway but also' to protect her subjects in Manchuria  from being murdered. She will  not be able to send many to Pekin."  The   prince   trusts   Russia 'will       never have to fight the Chinese.  was about to I He regards the present disturbance  ; Collision at Sea.

They intend  to run a tunnel in from their mill to  tap the big ledge. This will necessitate over 2000 feet of work. W. S.  Drewry of New Denver, is preparing the plans for a double track  tunnel, 8 by 12 feet. As soon as  the plans are completed, work will  'be started and the intention is to  rush the big cross-cub through as  soon as possible.  A rich, strike is reported on the  Sovereign. The Reco-Goodenough  ledge has been found cutting across  the ground. Manager George T.  Ransom has started to exploit the  find by a tunnel 55 feet below.  The Minnesota Silver Company  has decided to rush the building of  the concentrator. Grading for the  foundation is now going on and  rapid progress is being made by  masons witli the stone work.

Loss in killed aud wounded  was live officers. Reports are very  conflicting. I will remain here.  (Signed) Logan."  Washington, June 11. ��� The  cablegram was from commander  Logan of the cruiser Maehias which,  has been lying on the gulf side of  the isthmus of Panama for the past  month watching American interests in that vicinity. Perhaps the  very presence of a man-of-war has  served to deflect the revolutionary  movement to the other side of the  isthmus, but it is said at the navy  department that commander Logan  under his instructions would be  prepared at a moment's notice to  put a force of marines and sailors  on a special train and rush them  across tho Panama railroad to  Panama if tlieir presence there  were needed to safeguard the lives  of Americans and property -of  Americans,' . " , - -  ' The message as received was considerably mangled. It is believed  that the commander meant to say  that it appeared from the report of  the exchanges at Panama; that the-  National forces have been defeated.  ,The latest' reports from eastern  parts of Columbia, however, represent the total defeat, of the' insurgents.        __   Mclnnes JMust Go Toe.  ��� Montreal, June' ll.-~-The principal party press of Eastern Canada,  commenting on the elections in  British Columbia, agree that the  downfall of Martin will shortly include that of lieutenant-governor  Mclnnes. The outcome, however,  as regards the formation of a government with so many factions  represented among the successful  candidate is awaited with interest.  Prohibition Bill Passed.

CITY FATHERS IN SESSION  Routine Business.       s  Mayor Houston and aldermen McKillop, Morrison, Hall and Irvine  were present at last night's council  meeting. The business transacted  was largely of a routine nature.  II. Hynes offered $55 for the old  city stables.      No action was taken  as the new stables have not been  erected.  J. AVilliams wrote the council that  building operations "on the Kirkpatrick-Wilson-Clements block interfered with his business and  requested permission- to erect a  temporary building at the southeast corner of Victoria and Ward  streets. The aldermen would have  done something for Mr. Williams  had it lain in their power, but were  compelled to refuse the request.

London, June 12.���The Shanghai  correspondent of tiie Daily Express  says: "Wong Tung Ho, emperor  Kwang Han's tutor and confidant,  who was dismissed by the dowager  empress after the coup d'etat in  1808, sends, with the special sanction of the emperor and his. party,  including three viceroys, a message  to the people of the west, In, part  it is as follows:  "His majesty is convinced,  through ample trustAvdrthy sources,  that the loyal support of many  scores of millions of Chinese will be  accorded to his proposals for putting an end to the state of anarchy  brought about by the action of the  empress.  "The government of China being  non-.existent, the emperoi- proposes  that   the   foreign-   powers   whose  troops dominate the capital shall  remove his imperial person   from  the palace in which his majesty is  confined as a prisoner, shall declare  the empress and her ministry to be  usurpers and shall bring Emperor  Kwang Hau to Nanking, Wu Chang  or   Shanghai,  whichever the said  foreign powers deem to be tbe most  suitable situation for the new capital of the Chinese empire under the  new conditions,  "China is ripe for the change of  of the j tide which reactionaries vainly seek  to stem.   If it should be, on the  other hand, thac the foreign powers  seriously contemplate the dismemberment   of   the  Chinese   empire,  they have before them the huge  task of facing dense millions who,  although lacking training, and who  make   but   contemptible   soldiers,,,  possess boundless powers of resistance, and she xvill be able to wear  out the patience of any European  rulers seeking to govern them without regard to the prejudices of the  oldest civilization.  "The conquest and division of  China would bo possible with 100,-  000 troopb, but to retain the government would require 1,000,000  soldiers and centuries of %\ork.  ���The task would end wifch most unhappy results for  both conquered  and conqueroi -.   '"His majesty begs America and  Japan to pause before resorting to  a dismemberment which can be deferred at least until the emperor's  efforts to govern his people and to  restore the happiness of this great  division of the human race have  pro veil abortive."  NELSON ATHLETES AT WORK  Outlook Promising.  The recreation grounds was a  busy spot last night, the devotees  of various sports being out in strong  force. About 7 o'clock the sports  commenced to assemble and half an  hour later the entire "space was in  use.  A number of members of the ball  team turned out and batted the  sphere around the lot in lively  style for half an hour. The nine is  now in splendid shape, stronger at  every point than at any time in the  season and perhaps better balanced"  than any nine which ever wore the  Nelson colors. The game at Spokane two weeks hence seems to be  assured, and even against the  strong Spokane outfit the local team  will probably carry considerable  Nelson money. Judging .from the  remarks of enthusiasts a large contingent of rooters will accompany  the nine on their trip across the,  border.  The lacrosse players were also  out for a short time. The twelve  is slated to play the home team at  Greenwood during the celebration  at that point, and have also invited  Greenwood to play here on the 2nd  , or 3rd of July. The practices to  date have been well patronized,  but astronger turnout is desirable  if the team is to Avin against outside players. Last night, however,.  was not the regular practice night,  so that a fair idea could not be  gained of the club's form. The enthusiasts predict that Nelson will  place a fast team on the field for  the opening game.  The association football team got  into the game in splendid style last  night. - Considering the fact that  it was the club's first turnout the  attendance and enthusiasm displayed was remarkable. Among  those piesent were: Dr. P. A. McLennan, who played with McGill in  '90 when that'team won the championship of Canada; Dr, Stoddard  of 'Varsity '97 learn, C. W, Dill,  'Varsity '91, J. S.

A brand new pigskin was produced  and a lively game ensued, sides  being chosen for tbo night. Tho  management of the club was delighted ^with the turnout and are  sanguine as to the success of the  game in Nelson. From the above  list of names and other first class  players available in the eity, a  twelve can be chosen which could  down any other aggregation in the  Kootenays if the players ^ ill train  properly. _Last night's game was  more or less of a rough and tumble  practice, but the material for a  crackerjack team was right there  on the ground.  Meanwhile the hose team practiced on Baker street, and their run  was well worth witnessing. The  time made was tho fastest of the  season. To state just how fast it  was would be opposed to good  policy, but it may be stated without fear of contradiction that any  outside team which beats the time  made iii tho wet test last night lias  got, to break several records.  Kverything went off without the  remotest suggestion of a hitch and  the work "of the noz/.lemeu was  particularly sharp. " The team will  continue to practice tri-weekly  until Dominion day. -   -  Commandering Special Trains,  Tien Tsin, June 11.���The captain  in charge of the British defences  here commandered a third special  .train yesterday and a fourth today  for the transport of 213 Russians  and two guns and 02 French marines  with stores, and one gun for the ���  British.

Murdered Man Found.  Vaxcouvek, June 11.���The body  of V.  H.  Clayson,  who  was murdered between Minto and Hooshi-  coo on the Dawson-Skagway trail  on  December  25th last,  has been  found.    It had been washed ashore  near Selkirk after the ice went out,  and was discovered last Friday on  the  beach  close to  where  ifc was  supposed   to   have   been   dropped  through the ice by the  murderers.  The body has been taken to Dawson.    This     is     the    murder   for  which     O'Brien,     who     is     now  in     the     barracks     in      Dawson  was arrested a short time ago for.  Clayson was the senior member  of  the firm of F. II.  Clayson <fc Co., of  Skagway.   He had beon to Dawson  on business and was  on his  return  with a large sack of gold dust wheu  last heard of. The notorious O'Brien  and his gang were in Dawson when  Clayson Avas  there, and they followed him out on the trail, presumably to murder him for his money.  A reward of $1000 has been offeied  by the Clayson firm for the recovery of   the body   and the   amount  wil1 now be paid to the finder.  0_\%00 * 0__ *l___^. 1___^ '00 * 00 *0_\ ' ___\ '00 * 1��__\_ *0__ * 0^ *1___\ ��� ___\ *___^% 0^ * *__^_. 9____S*__^_S *____\*____- *���__^.%___\^ *____\*____^ '__���-_*���___S *���__���\*___���S *____^'___^. *____^#^^  w".^**��*','>��k*^ ���^���^���^���^ ���^���^.���^���^ ��>^*^.*^v3***ao *f__*'^'^'^'^'^'^'^' *_*'?_*'^'00't__<'��_*<���___*'^'^,_\  Mr ^Jf  Xit  Xit  Xit  Xli  Xli  Xit  Xit  Xit  x_i  Yourself and Friends are Invited by  The Home Art Society of  Decorative Needle  Work  of New York, to view an Exhibition of Silk Art Needle Work and  to arrange for a series of lessons, from May 28th to June 13th.

He says it  is impossible at present to estimate  the output of the Yukon for 1900,  but ifc will undoubtedly be much  larger than last year. He figures  that about four thousand people  have left Dawson this spring for  Nome and Koyukuk. A couple of  hundred have also gone, to the  Hootalinqua and Salmon Arm districts, from where news of some  very valuable strikes by prospectors has been leaking oufc lately.  There is a good deal of talk about  discoveries in the Hootalinqua, and  a feAV prospectors who intended  going to Nome, anion g"_them J. J.  Maney and J. K.

THE: MILLIONAIRE'S   INVASION.  London Daily Mull.  Are the  splendid  paupers,  long  owners of rural England, and  worthy sustairiers of the traditions of  a noble race, giving way to American  manufacturers, to South African  speculators,  to  German   merchant princes?    Our  old aristocra-  / ty absorbed  the  Rothschilds . and  y. Beiitincks of previous  generations,  and made them part of itself.    The  new millionaires threaten to absorb  it.    From Sfeibo  Castle, near   Dornoch   Firtb,  down  to  Norres,   by  Cowes, the cosmopolitans of capital  are seizing some of the fairest spots  ���i.. our. land.  Most of our millionaire invaders  come from America and South Af-  i ica. Among them is Andrew Carnegie, Scotch by birth, American  by adoption, he started life on four  shillings a week, and is now worth  X 10,000,000. He found America a  good land for earning money, but  lie spends it in the laud of his birth.  The traditions of his people drew  Iiim back to Scotland. At first he  rented Cluny, but, watching his  chance, he secured the great estate  of Skibo Castle at a bargain.  William Waldorf Astor is a scion  of an ancient  house that achieved  wealth iu  the   United  States.    Inheriting an estate worth over ��20,-  000,000, he  found the  lot of a rich  American too hard to be borne. He  hated the  publicity  given  to   his  smallest acts, so  he came to   England "ibr" peace.     After    renting  Lansdowne   House, he   secured   a  town   residence iu Carlton   House-  terrace, and bought the beautiful  estate of Cliveden from the Duke  of   Westminster.    He   transferred  all his business interests here, build-  ��� ing an oflice on the ,Thames Em-  b uikment, which is nothing  bnt a  gigantic strong ioom.    His  office is  ptobably the most charming and  tho least guarded building iu the  world, and deeds  valued at  $100,-  000*000 dollars arc -.aid to rest there.  , The Bradley-Martins have made  themselves    a   place  "iu    English  ��?oeicty, and have annexed a house  in Chesterfield-gardens, and a Highland ' estate   at    Glen    Urquhart.  Nearly B0 years ago Bradley-Martin,  a young lawyer of good family, met  hih future wife under romantic circumstances* at a Vanderbilt wedding.   They were  married Avithin  two mouths, and some time after-  wai ds the wife's father died,  and  left a fortune of $10,000,000.  With  the part of this money that came to  them the Bradley-Martins crossed  the Atlantic, and set down to conquer   English   society.    They took  one of tho costliest deer shootings  in ~J verness^shireT     One   daughter-  married   an 'earl.      The   Bradley-  Martins    scored    their    iirst    real  triumph   when   they  devised   the  most costly aud extravagant fancy  diess ball of modern times.  Some of our American millionaire  invaders come here foi rest. Of  this type is James R. Keene, for a  long time champion bear on the  Xew York Stock Exchange. With  the practically unlimited capital of  the Tobacco and Oil Trusts behind  him, he manipulated tho markets  almost as he pleased. In six great  deals in six years ho won $18,000,000.  Now, with a sorely-tried, nervous  ���system he comes here for peace and  quiet, which his own hustling country cannot give him.  ��� .Joseph Pulitzer, owner of-the  New York World, belongs to the  same class. From tho bottom of  1 he latter he has got to the topmost  rung. His newsx>aper palace, 22  storeys high, is one of the sights of  New'York City. Today, amidst his  greatest triumphs, he comes away  to London for some months each  year. He seeks the quietest town  house he ean iind, and settles there,  lie suffers perpetually from in-  f-omnia. Bufc he still looks a very  young man, and his business power  is greater than ever. He forgets  nothing, and extracts from every  man all he can get. ��� His one recreation is music. Tall, thin, full of  quick movement, his figure is familiar afc many concerts. He will  never talk of money matters, bufc a  fi'W years ago his annual income  was estimated afc ��200,000.  Marshall Field, the merchant  prince of Chicago, loves Warwickshire, where he is well known in  hunting circles. ' He has retired  from business now, but he was  long the Whiteley and the Lipton  of tho Windy City. The designs  alone of his great store cost $100,-  000. Ten thousand shopmen call  him master and 10,000 small retailers cursed his enormous business as being their ruin. He was  the most relentless, the most enterprising, . the most successful of  monopolists. Some of the millions  made in Chicago now find their way  here. . .  Apart from South Africa, our  own colonies send us few millionaires, but those who do come make  their way. It would be hard to  call lord Mount Stephen an invader, for he was born in Scotland!  Yet Canada is his own land, and his  name will ever be connected with  the making of the Canadian Pacific  railway. Iu town he lives not far  from Mr. Astor; in the country he  has a home hear lord Salisbury.  Lord '���- Strathcona is another  Scotchman who found wealth in  Canada. He went out to the wild  west as an agent of fche Hudson's  Bay Company, and soon fought his  way to the top. Although high  commissioner for Canada, he has  as many interests here as over the  water. His splendid services  during the present war are fresh in  every mind.  Not many millionaire Australians  now arrive here. Best known of  them is W. K. D'Arcy, who owes  his wealth to one happy stroke.  Thirty-six years ago he was a  solicitor in Rockhampton in Queensland. Two of his friends, brothers  named Morgan, hit on a great  streak of gold bearing land. D'Arcy  helped them to develop it, putting  some money into the business aud  receiving in return a quarter share.  The Morgans sold out for a few  thousands. D'Arcy held on. The  mine, Mount Morgan, as it is  called, turned out to be the richest  in the world. In one year alone  over ��1.000,000 was % distributed  among the owners. Mr. D'Arcy  can well afford to take fine estates  over from our "splendid paupers."  'lie has lived in England and played  a great part in society for some  time now.  Nelson.

To   , add     to      this     confusion,  the river Tugela has selected the  hills around Ladysmith as occupying the country through which it  will endeavor to throw off its pursuers.    It darts through them as  though striving to escape, it doubles on its tracks, it sinks out   of  sight   between   them, and   in   the  open plain rises to the dignity of  waterfalls.   It runs uphill, and remains motionless on an incline, and  , on the   level   ground   twists   and  turns so frequently that when one  says he has crossed the Tugela, he  means he has   crossed it once at a  ,<driffcj once at the wrecked railroad  bridge and once   over a   pontoon.  And then he is not sure that he is  not still   on   the -. same side   from  which he started.  DIVORCE   IN   JAPAN.  Japan Times.  The following are the texts of  letters, bearing a recent date, exchanged between an aggrieved husband and his delightful successor,  both of Azuma-Mura, Ashikaga  district, Tochigi prefecture:  Mr. Sakichi Yamomoto:  Sir.���You have been guilty of  improper flirtations with my wife,  Tsune, and. the affair has greatly  grieved me. For this reason I have  made various complaints against  you for your offensive conduct,  "through the members of our communal body, aud you have sent me  endless apologies, but as I find them  unsatisfactory, I have like a man  ���decided to get rid of my wife, and  I do hereby give and transfer her  to you. Henceforth I will not entertain any lingering affections for  the woman, and in proof thereof  ���witness my signature.  Kamekichi Fujikawa.  South African Medal,  the    authority    of  Ou the authority of "South  Africa" the medal for the campaign against the Boers will be the  most expensive and the most'ornate  issued" by the British war office in  recent years. The medal proper is  to be a five-pointed star with a  gold center surrounded by a ring of  bronze, on which the words "South  Africa" appear iu raised letters.  In the center of it all is a miniature  of the queen. The medal is the  same size as the Khedivial Star of  18SI, The ribbon, four colors, a  stripe of khaki in the center, two  of white aud one each of red and  blue. There will probably be a bar  granted for each important engagement. Both ribbon and star are  exceedingly attractive in appearance, and will, "doubtless,-be_worn  with much pride by the happy  recipients when the war is over.  Even up to the present, the important engagements have been i  sufficiently numerous to provide  bars to satisfy Tommy's most ardent  desire for material decorations. To  name only some of them there are  Magersfontein, Colenso, Belmont,  Graspan and Paardeberg.  Mr. Kamekichi Fujikawa:���  Sir: It is indisputably true that  I have been guilty of intimacy with  your beloved wife, and on that account I have sent - you ^apologies  through the members of our com-  nautiai body. You, however, steadfastly refuse to forgive,.and have  instead forwarded your wife to me.  I beg herewith- to acknowledge receipt and transference of said wife,  etc.  ,__'  GETTING   BEADY.  Buller's Difficulties.  No map, nor photograph, nor  written description,' ean give an  idea of the counti y which lay between Buller and his goal. It was  an eruption of high hills, linked together at eveiy point without order or sequence. In most countries  mountains and hills follow some  natural law. The Cordilleras can  be traced from the Amazon river  to Guatemala City; they make the  watershed of two continents; the  great divide forms the backbone of  the'States, but these Natal hills  havo no lineal descent. They  are illegitimate children of no  line, abandoned broadcast over  the country, with no family likeness and no home. They stand  alone or shoulder to shoulder, or at  right angles, or at a tangent, or  join hands across a valley. They  never appear the same ; some run  to a sharp point, some stretch out,  forming a tableland, others are  gigantic anthills, others perfect and  accurately modelled ramparts. In a  ride of half a mile, every hill completely loses its original aspect and  character. They hide each other,  or disguise each other. Each can  bo enfiladed by the ofcher, and nofc  one gives up fche secret of its sfcrafce-  Toronto Star.  All the lay figures and stock  propei'ties used in the political  show are being brought out and  aired. That the'elections are very  near cannot be doubted. Already  we have had occasion to mention  the appearance in.* the columns of  the Mail of the '/life-long Liberal"  who has been'for twenty years confiding to that paper his disappoint-  I merit with the Liberal party.  Now the sweet little girl has  come forward with a bouquet for  sir Charles Tupper at a political  meeting, has been patted on the  the head and" kissed by the gallant  old gentleman.  The political speakers and writers  ���are referring to whatever county  they happen to be in as "the grand  old county," "while there are now no  mere townships^ for all have become "banner townships."  The "grand old stalwarts" are  ���also coming forward after four  years for handshakes. Ifc is hard  to know what makes a man a .stalwart or when he becomes one, bufc  the stump speaker knows him on  sight, and greets him cordially.  Everything seems- in   readiness.  [ for the elections, once parliament  ���concludes its present session.  An Office on Wheels.  One of the most original uses  made of the automobile is its conversion into a perambulating office  and dressing room. The idea started with multi-millionaire Fiske.  His residence is an honr,'s ride from  Ins place of business, and he conceived the idea of putting these  two hours a day devoted to travel  to attending to his business and his  toilet, so he had an automobile constructed made up mainly of an  office large enough to hold a desk,  pigeon holes and a typewriting out-  lit, himself, his stenographer and a  caller or two, with a small dressing  3-oom Attached. This automobile  oflice is, during business hours,  backed up against his place of business, with one end thrown open for  an entrance. When he has errands  to do or seeks his home the entrance  is closed and the motor vehicle  moves away. En route home he  continues his work at his desk,  jvheis not engaged   in completing  his toilet for dinner. "There are no  windows in the vehicle," says its  owner, "so I am not disturbed by  the passing scenes, "but I have a  skylight which I use in the mornings and during the evening. At  the office I had constructed a passageway leading from the side street  directly under fche court where I  get the benefit of the light from  above, and can step from the door  of my motor office directly into the  main offices. Of course the vehicle  is not exactly what you would call  handsome from the outside, appearing more like a furniture van than  anything else. However, I do not  go much on appearances, and so  long as it means two and a half  hours of time gained every day, I  am well satisfied., |I have some  other plans in the way of automobile novelties which I believe will  be just as interesting as this office  on wheels.  HOW  SHE   SAID  "YOUR GRACE."  Buffalo News.  Mary, the late duchess of Teek,  had many charms which rendered  her dear to all sorts and conditions  of men and women, but none so  great, says ah American bishop's  wife, who met her many times, as'  the_ delightful way in which she  used to repeat a story.  Above all, she loved to tell any  tale that brought a hearty laugh  on the nobility of which she was  so democratic a member. One of  her stories, pointed at nobody dared  say whom, was about a seamstress,  and that seamstress' little daughter.  Polite duns by post and messenger  had had no effect in bringing about  a liquidation of accounts, so that  finally, in despair, the sewing  woman concluded to send her very  sweet little girl with a verbal request for the money which was  owing.  She polished the little face until  it was like a June rose and took her  to the gates of the ducal mansion,  all the way impressing on her what  she was to say: "And above all,  don't forget to say 'Your Grace!' "  The child promised and trotted  off. By some decree of fate she got  quickly by the servants and was  shown into the duchess' sitting-  room.  She looked composedly at the  great dame. . "Are you the duchess,  madam?" she said. "Yes, my child,"  and at that word the little one put  her two hands together, reverently  closed her eyes: "For what we are  about- to receive," she said, "O,  Lord, make us truly thankful!" _ .  "Even a pauper duchess couldn't  stand that way of saying ������Your  Grace,' " the Duchess of Teck would  conclude with a jolly hit afc her own  well known financial difficulties,  "and the child got the money."  i ��� .

Nevertheless,  outside of the slender war office  telegrams, no one knows what is  going on. South of Kroonstadt  there is a wide gap. The railway  is only partially defended, and as  general Kelly-Kenny has hurried  all the available troops north, the  assumption is that there is danger  of a second raid. The loss of the  Derbyshires is estimated at from  000 to 700 men.  A Renter dispatch from Maseru,  dated June 11th, says fifteen hunch ed Boeit> surrendered to general  Brabant today in the Ficksburg  district.  Machadorp has been finally proclaimed the capital of the Transvaal.

An official Boer telegram asserts  thafc the British have been defeated  with considerable loss afc Donkers-  poort, in the southern extremity of  the Free State, ten miles from Norval's Pout. It was thought that  this district had been cleared of  Boers and rebels long ago.  The Boers still cling to Laing's  Nek, but general Buller's forces are  still working far around in that direction.  Lord Roberts has wired Capetown that prior to AVednesday lie  had liberated 151 officers 3500 of  the rank and file. The Boers consequently only took 900.  Mr. Schreiner. the Cape premier,  had eight supporters out of forty  at a caucus called to consider the  ministerial program. Mr. J. X.  Merriam, treasurer, and Air. J. AV.  Sauer, commissioner r of public  works, have resigned from the cabinet, and Mr. Schreiner's own resig-'  nation is believed to be- imminent,  although he may reconstruct the  ministry with the aid of the opposition, the British members.

A Boer deserter, who arrived at  Maseru yesterday, asserts that 7,000  Boers participated in the Roos-  kratitz engagement, that general  Olivier was killed and that general  Devilliers was mortally wounded.  The young American women who  are nursing in the hospital at Ladybrand have been slighted by the  Boer women who are nursing the  Boer sick in the same hospital, and  have been made the object of unpleasant remarks because the Americans are nursing the English.  Thirty thousand troops were engaged in the mimic field operations  at Aldershot yesterday.  News From the Orient.  Victoria, June 11.���The Queen  Adelaide from the Orient brings  files containing the story that six  weeks ago Japan and Russia were  close to war over the landing of a  Japanese trader, whose removal  was demanded by the Russians at  Masampo. The war was said to be  averted by the refusal of Britain to  act with Japan, owing fco the fact  that she was engaged iu South Africa. Advices from Shanghai tell  of the murder of the Chinese general, Yang Loh. AVhile parleying  with the Boxers near Ting Fu, he  was cut down from behind and  hacked to pieces.
