 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR.  NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING JUNE 18 1900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  CHINESE NEWS UNRELIABLE  Position of tli9 United States.  New Yohk, June 17.���Both in a  cable dispatch to this morning's  Tribunc ami in hit. regular London  eiblo letter, Mr. Koid deals with  (he news and tiie discussion of tho  Chinese situation. In tho 1 o'clock  cablegram lie cays :  ���'The news from I'ekin conies indirectly through Shanghai and Tien  Tsin and is strongly colored by  public excitement in botli cities.  The European legations are reported  h > havo been attacked by mobs and  1 he building-- desti oyed. Tho Roman  Catholic cathedral is said to havo  been burned and' the Boxers are  charged with murdering the Ger-  *��� mini minister and a considerable  number of." Christian convoi ts and  Europian subjects. Thc.se dis-  p.ttches"arc \\ itliottt doubt grossly  in error. The only trustworthy  news from Pekin is contained in  dispatches to the foieign office and  embassies here, aud these aie not  published.  '* ID is evident that the empress  lias been alarmed by the report that  Iter deposition had been proposed  and that she has decided that the  foreign marines must not be allowed to reach the capital. The  tiain containing food and ammunition for them has returned to Tien  TV in without delivering the supply.  The marines are repairing the lail-  ways but the Boxers are destroying  them more rapidly than it can be  icpaired. Incendiaries art) at work  in Tien Tsin, wheie thiee Americans and Knglish churches have  been burned to the ground. There  are alarming reports at the spread  of dissatisfaction and revolt in other  districts of China.  "Tho British cabinet held a meeting here yesterday aud tlio Chinese  question was discussed  in  details."  In   his   cable   letter,   Mr.   Ford  fronts the subject as follows :  ,"The action of the Amei ican government in China lias escaped pub-  '   lie   observation   here because   tho  force of marines font to Pekin was  small.    Out it is duly watched'in  diplomatic circles.    That action i.s  independent if not isolated. American marines may bo marching with  European   and   Japanese  marines,  but they avc going  to   I'ekin   for a  specific pui pose,  the  protection of  ' American   missionaries    and    property, aud" are   not  instruments of  any European concert;    This-fact  Is clearly understood among diplomatists here, aud certain inferences  are drawn from it.    One is thafc the  - United States does nob intend to bo  entrapped into any European coalition for the protection  of  tiie dis-  mombermenfc of- China.   A concert  may be formed, bufc America  will  not be iu it.    The Washington government will look aftei   the interests of its' own  in   China as  it is  doing in Constantinople.  '��� Another inference is thafc this  independent course wiil strengthen  tiie  resources  of  tho   Washington  ���government for - - holding ��� tlio  European powers to their quarantine on tiie open door question.  It will nob act with England or  Germany, and will lemain outside  the concert and be in a better  position for dealing with the  powei.s and insisting thafc, whatever  changes there may he in spheres of  influence and territorial holdings,  the principle of equality in commercial advantage shall be maintained.  ���* Lord Salisbury began several  years ago, with ringing the changes  upon the open door 'policy and  ended by leasing Wei Hai Woi on  the same terms on which Germany  and Russia has" acquired ports and  naval stations. This was practical  evidence that England, whenever  an emergency arose, would join the  European concert for controlling  action in China and regulating a  scheme of partition, if there should  be a break up of the empire.  "Ifc is already clear that the  powers are acting together in sending marines fco Pekin, and fchafc at  the risk of instigation of civil war  they may be called on io depose  the empress and grant Russia a  mandate for the occupation of northern China.  "The Boxers' movement is wide-  spreid and has been in pi ogress for  a long time, and the empress has  been forced to support it in order  to protect the dynasty and throne.  The European concert will be compelled to adopt measures for crushing this anti-foreign movement,  and ifc may be impracticable to  defer the dissolution of the Chinese  empire.   In this even fc the American  government will be in a unique  position, if the worst conies, for  holding the European powers to  tlieir pledges, to respect the 'open  door' principle. It may bo enabled  to play an important role as peacemaker and tlio champion of the  commercial interests of the world,  and this it can do with greater efficacy if it remains outside the European concert.  "Mining aud railway engineers  who are familiar with China assert  tliat an enormous expansion of the  world's trade will be the result of  the opening of tho Chinese empire  under the scientific conditions of  modern enterprise. Millions are  now living there in primitive surroundings, but with the extension  ot railways, 1 ho development of  coal mines and other mineral resources, the intioduction of electric  machinery and building of factories,  fche market for foreign goods could  be quadrupled. One of the most  important interests of modern commerce is the opening of China on  conditions of commercial equality to  industrial competition by all  nations, and the United States has  become the special guardian of that  principle.  '* Momentarily, the European  poweis are held together by the  common menace of the slaughter  of foreigners, but the concert is not  likely to prove more efficient in  China, than afc Constantinople in  the past. Russia and France are  deeply distrusted, not only by  Japan, but by England and Germany, and ifc is by no means clear  thafc the concert can be induced  to sanction the deposition of the  empress, when the rightful emperor  is at her mercy and the ambassadors are virtually imprisoned in  their embassies with the relief force  cut off, and hung up half way between the coast and the capital."  RUSSIANS MARCH ON PEKIN  Situation is Critical.  London, June IS���3 a. m.���The  latest news to hand is thafc 7000  Russians, wifch twelve machine guns  are inarching from Tien Tain to  Pekiu. Lasfc week the foreign ministers warned the Tsung Li Yamen  thafc in the event of an atfcaek upon  the legations, or of injury to any of  tiie ministers or the members of  the staffs of the legations, the  powers in combination would declare war upon China., Too this  ultimatum the Tsung Li Yamen, as  usual, returned no direct reply.  The answer of the empress dowager is no doubt the attack on the  legation by the Boxers, and the  troops under general Tung Fuh  Siang.  The following summary of the  situation was telegraphed to the  Daily News from Shanghai lasfc  evening :  "' The situation is critical aud  without iiarallel since the Indian  mutiny. Afc the Yang Tse ports  theie is a grave feeling of unrest  among fche���natives.--As-yefc there"  has been no outbreak, but placards  have beeu posted in Kin Kaig,  Ugasski and Wu IIu, calling the  people to kill and burn. A body of  riottrs, 5,000 strong, are at K%vei  JLsif, iu the prefecture of Canton,  and troops have gone fco suppress  them. The powers, unprepared, are  helpless to prevent disaster, bufc  barring trifling local frictions they  are working amicably."  ��� Naval Co-Operation/,  Nkw Yokk, June ,17.���Tho Tribune prints this morning the following statement from secretary  Long, of the United States navy  department! who was the guest of  friends in Brooklyn last night, and  wa�� interviewed in relation to the  movements of ships to meet the  exigencies in China: "The navy-  will co-operate wifch the state department in the protection of  American iuterests in China. Yon  understand'that the navy is an ad-  juncb-of tho state department. We  await their orders, The navy will  be glad to co-operate with the state  'department." According to secretary Long it is not likely that the  north Atlantic squadron, now afc  Newport, wiil be brought into use  in dealing wifch the Chinese problem.  He said he did not think a situation  would arise that would demand the  presence of the squadron in Asiatic  waters. Secretary Long spoke of  the squadron afc Manila, mentioning  fche Brooklyn and the Oregon and  lesser warships, which he said  though fc would be ample to meet  the exigencies as they arose in  China.  SOME 1ADY BALL PLAYERS  Nelson Sports.  Manager Waterman has a star  attraction on the strings for the  Dominion Day celebration. He has  received a challenge from the Boston Bloomers, au aggregation of  lady baseball players who are said  to be good looking and good ball  players. Tho Boston Bloomers  claim to be the champion lady base-  ballists of the world, and Lew  Waters aud Rockenfield, who  pitched against them in Denver,  say the outfit plays really good  ball and that the Nelson team  would have its hands full to beat  them out. Harry Sanger of Van-  coiiA'er is agent for the ladies' team,  and manager Waterman has written to make dates for July 2 and 3.  The ladies are making their seventh  annual trip and travel in a private  car.    The cricket club promises to become a live organization. Secretary Forbes has succeeded in interesting a number of the best local  players and figures on having 30  playing members within a few  days. The idea of bringing Rossland here for a game during the  celebration has been dropped.  Rossland does not want to tackle  Nelson without more practice, in  addition to which ib would be difficult to secure the recreation  grounds for the match. A game  will be arranged later on with an  outside team. In the meantime a  home game will be arranged between "Englishmen" and "Colonials." Two good elevens ean be  picked on this division and a close  game may be looked for. The  wiDg net, ordered for the club, will  be very valuable for practice. Any  two members who have an hour to  spare can put up the net on the  crease and practice batting and  bowling together.  The baseball excursion fco Spokane will leave here on Friday  morning, the 22nd instanfc, on the  regular Nelson & Fort Sheppard  train. The proposition to go via  Rossland has been abandoned  owing to the increased cost. The  prospect for a good crowd is bright,  and it is probable fchafc the 50 desired will be forthcoming.  kills out of 20 birds The weather  was bad for shooting.

A few days  ago J. S. Fanning of Ufcica, New  York, killed 21S birds without a  miss, thus breaking the world's  record of 211 straight kills made by  C. A. Young of Ohio.  The highest ter.m score in the  first C. M. R. A.'m Hcli was made by  one of the crack Toronto teams.  The Nanaimo Rifle Association, of  which Dr. Hall was formerly a member, came second with au aggregate  of 88-1 points and an average of 88].  The "secretary of the Dominion  Day celebration committeee received  a letter yesterday from the junior  association football club of Sandon  asking if they could get a game up  here on Dominion Day Avith boys  under 16. As the Sandon youngsters are apparently willing to come  without any money being put up  for them, the Nelson juniors should  be able to accommodate them.  A new rowing four was out for  their initial spin yesterday, the members being Hislop sfcroke; Wright  third; Pierey second, and Lauder  how. The men are sturdy and well  balanced, and they should make a  strong crew.  The present season will probably  be one of the most successful in the  history of the Nelson Tennis Club.  The membership is large, and the  attendance afc the courts excellent.  The annual tournament will probably be pufc on during July.

Captain Thompson of Vancouver, a  visitor, headed the score with 13  It looks now as if there will be at  least five, if not six, entries for the  scratch fours' race on Dominion  Day. The latest crew to enter the  lists is made up as follows: George  Stillwell, stroke; II. W. R. Moore,  3; T. Gallon, 2; F. H. Hawkins, bow,  and T. Gallon, junior, cox. Mr.  Playford, of the firm of Crowe &  Morris, has consented to coach the  crew.  The rifle shooting at the ranges  on Saturday was well attended, the  increase of interest in shooting  being probably due to the C. M. R. A.  matches on the preceding Saturdays. The scores were not particularly high as will be seen from  the following list:  -  200  .j(>0  000  y-u.*  Yds.  YtK  Total  I*r. Hull   .. 31  28  20  7!)  '-lien G obey.

Philadelphia, June 17.���For the  first time since the Republican  leaders began to assemble in Philadelphia there has today been some  earnest work upon the platform,  and a draft has been completed  which it is believed will receive the  approval of the convention. The instrument as far as prepared is of  considerable length, but very clear  cut and emphatic in its enunciations.  It begins by calling attention to the  piomiscs that were made in the St.  Louis convention of 1806, and, after  enumerating them, declares thafc  faith has been kept in almost every  instance.  Especial attention is called to the  fact that the platform of 1806 promised that the country should be  put up on the gold standard, aud  that this pledge has been faithfully maintained.  The president's policy with reference to the Philippines is endorsed  throughout, and his conduct of the  war with Spain is upheld in the  strongest terms of commendation  and praise. The president's course  on the Boer-British entanglement  is also endorsed. The president  also comes in for praise because of  his attitude in The Hague peace  conference, and the administration  is commended i'or its position and  its accomplishments in the matter  of an ''open door" iu China. There  is no reference to the present critical condition in China. The shipping subsidy bill is endorsed.  Mark Hanna, Avho is credited  with the authorship of the gold  standard bill, was in conference  with Smith and Foraker for some  time today with reference to tho  financial plank of the platform. He  is especially anxious that this plank  should be unequivocal in its language, and no concession should be  made ,to the silver interest. The  .representatives from ther western  states are antagonizing him somewhat on this subject, but 'Mr.  Hanna expresses confidence thafc no  concession will be made.  reaches Johannesburg from Potchefstroom. These two columns  have proved that the western  Transvaal is a hollow shell, without  resources for resisting invasion.  One of president Kruger's sons has  surrendered. General Roberts  goes out of liis way to explain his  immediate plan of campaign. Geueral Buller has been ordered to  Standerton, and Heidelberg will  soon be occupied. The Boer forces  in the Transvaal will then be separated from the Free State commandoes, and each division will be dealt  with in turn. The first movement  which' general Buller will make  from Standerton will be toward  Vrede, where 1000 prisoners are  confined.  ALL CABINETS IN THE DARK  News From French'Sources.  Paris. June 17.���A cablegram received today from the French consul afc Hong Kong does not mention  the reported murder of the German  minister at Pekin nor the reported  destruction of the legations there.  The French consul at Tien Tsin  telegraphs that the European detachments senfc to Pekin are advancing very slowly. In the recent  rioting in Pekiu the consul reports  the Boxers burned the Protestant  Episcopal establishments in the  town. All is quiet in the Erench  concession. French, troops with  artillery are being sent from Ton-  quin to Tien Tsin where they will  arrive June 25th. Other troops  despatched from France will arrive  on July 3rd. The minister of  marine has ordered a division of  cruisers to be got ready for the sea  to reinforce the French squadron in  Chinese waters. Transports are  also being prepared to take military  reinforcements.  TROOPS IN AFRICA REDUCED  End of the War Near.  London, Juno 18.~J:20 a.m.���  There aro some indications that lord  Roberts considers the end of the  struggle in South Africa afc a fair  distance. One of these is the fact  that the Natal volunteers, who  have seen hard service, were dismissed to their homes by sir Redvers JJulier on Saturday. They  were cheered as fchey leffc. A noiiher  indication i.s the report current in  authoritatively informed military  circles in Londou thafc a complete  division of regulars is to be withdrawn from general Buller's army  and embarked afc Durban for China.  The troops drawn from India will  probably go next.  Lord Roberts let yesterday go by  without telegraphing.  Unofficial intelligence from Machadorp via Lorenzo Marquez is to  the effect that fche British troops  are now near Middlebnrg.  League Games.  St. Louis 2, Cincinnati 11.  Chicago 8, Pittsburg i.

Manila,   June   17.���Judge   Taffc  and his colleagues of the-civil  commissions are studying the different  legislative-phases of  the situation  preparatory to the work of enacting now laws ou September 1 when  they assume legislative power.  The  people of Manila seem pleased with  the democratic course of the  commissioners and'with  their  habitually     courteous    demeanor.      The  earlier feeling of disappointment is  slowly  disappearing.    The   United  States forces had vwo engagements  of     importance    last < week.    The  troops     under     general    Funston  and general Grant organized au advance wifch parts of  five  regiments  and two guns against  five hundred  rebels in   a mountain   stronghold  east of   Biacnabat,  where  it  was  supposed  captain���Robertfj,-of tire"  35th regiment, who was capfcuied  lasfc month afc San  Miguel  de  Ma-  ynma,   was   held   captive.       The  Americans   operated   under  many  diiliculLies and over an exceedingly  rough country, but  the  rebels re-  ticatcd.      As   tho   re-aulfc   Of   Jasfc  week's    scouring,   sixty    Filipinos  were killed, 200 were captured and  300   rifles,  with   23,000   rounds of  ammunition     were      .surrendered.  Three American)- were killed.  WAR AND BRITISH POLITICS  Insurgents Win This Time.  Ivinc'ktox, Jamaica, June 17.���  Tho royal mail steamer Don, captain j)avis, wliich arrived h��>ro  today from Colon, Colombia, brings  news of au important battle fought  on I'Viday last about ten miles outside of Panama. According to this  information the insurgent forces  were victorious and some 200 of fche  government troops were killed. It  is inferred thafc Panama may already be in possession of the rebels.  The latter were strongly entrenched  at San Joaquin, near Santa Maria,  when the Don left Colon.  South African War Situation.  Nkw York, June 17.-��� Isaac N.  Ford, in his latest cable on the  South African Avar filed at 5 o'clock  this morning, deals briefly with the  situation in the absence of important news. He says: "There was  little war news from South Afi ica  yesterday, but what there wtis  seemed favorable to tho British  side. General Baden-Powell had  reached Rustonborg and a column  was starting from Pretoiia to meet  him. Baden-Powell will bo in  Pretoria    befoie    general   Hunter  Next General Elections.  Nkw York, June 17.���Mr. Ford  cables this morning's Tribune from  London in regard to British politics  as follows:  "The China crisis and the unexpected prolongation  of   the South  African war, through the difficulty  of transport and fche  desperate resistance of the Boers, have choked  off all talk about a general election  in July.    The Liberals will put out  a strong feeler on Monday in questioning the ministers upon the state  of the registry,  but  there is not'  likely to be a definite answer. Lord  Salisbury has not'made up hie mind  respecting the dafce of the election.  Th'eininisfers themselves are divided  respecting the expediency of forcing  an a ppeal to the country.  "There is endless chattering in fche  smoking rooms of the political  clubs, but the shrewdest, surmises  defer the elections until October,  and displace lord Salisbury at the  foreign office as soon as the present  question is wound up and Mr. Balfour is afc liberty to devote his  energies to the Chinese question.  "Mr. Chajnbj*rijynJs_noMikejy_to  Teinaih iu the colonial office, and  his future is the most difficult problem which lord Salisbury is called  upon fco .solve, He i.s a favorite  with the queen, and his relations  wifch lord Salisbury and Mr, Balfour are most cordial. The leadership of.the commons, the first lordship of the treasury and the chan-  collorship ,of the exchequer are  posts for which he is pre-eminently  fitted, but sir Michael 11 icks'Beach,  like sir William Harcourt, has no  idea of retiring from parliament,  and there are scores of old Tories  who cannot tolerate the thought of  serving under Mr. Chamberlain.  "All these political changes are  dependent upon lord Roberts' success in bringing the war to a close.  The main obstacle to peace is the  impracticability of ending the war  by an armistice or negotiations.  The fighting would cease at once if  the British generals could grant the  -Boers any terms short of unconditional surrender. But as lord  Roberts can only invite them to  disperse to their farms, ami submit  as gracefully as possible to British  rule, naturally the fighting  continues.  ���'The occupation of .Johannesburg  has deprived president Kruger of a  financial base i'or conducting the  war afc the expense of foreign shareholders, and while the Lydenburg  district may be well provisioned,  the Boer refugees are nofc likely to  remain long in hiding."

London, June 18.���3 a.m.���There  is nofc a cabinet in Europe apparently that known what has been  transpiring in Pekin for five days,  or in Tien Tsin for three days. Nor  is there any that knows what difficulties the small and inadequately  equipped international column is  contending with between those  cities. The German foreign ofllce,  upon learning of the report of the  murder of baron von Ketteler, the  German minister at Pekin, sent a  telegraphic enquiry to St. Petersburg to the Russian government  because, through its. wires to Manchuria, it was supposedly iu a better  position than the other governments to obtain direct news. Tn  reply the German foreign office was  informed thac notln'ng whatever  was known on the subject as communication with Pekin was interrupted.  The report spread world wide  from Shanghai that the legations  had been attacked and that one  minister, probably the German, had  been murdered, has beeu traced to  the Stao Tai Sheng who, for a few  days as the empress dowager's  agent, has been censoring telegrams  from Shanghai. The Shanghai  correspondent of the Daily Express  says :  " Sheng, as the head of the telegraph administration, pretended  that the line connecting Shanghai  with Pekiu had been down since  June 9 and that the wires to Tien  Tsin were cut on June 15. Nevertheless, it is notorious that constant  communications have been passing  from Shanghai to Pekin over the ,  northern and western routes,  although Sheng has refused both  ministers aud consuls the privilege '  of using the lines. It is known that;  last Friday Sheng received a message from either Pekin or Tien Tsin.  Thisr dispatch said that general  Tung Fuh Siang's troops aided' the  Boxers in an organized attack on  the foreign? legal ions and that/ in  the attack some of the legation  buildings were reduced to ruins,  and one foreign minister sliced to  pieces."  Why in  the cables ifc should   be,  added that the murdered minister  was baron von Ketteler is* not explained.  According to another telegram  front,Shanghai, dated June 17th, at  7:25 p. m., Sheng had fled, fearing  that the foreign authorities were  about to arrest him because of his  stoppage of telegrams. A third  cablegram" asserts that" th'e reports ���  ot the murder of the German minister emanated from London and are  quite uncomfirmed and are discredited afc Shanghai.  "The German minister has boen  captured," is the announcement to'  the Morning Post from Pekin, in a  dispatch dated June 13th, 5 p. vat,  via Aden~June���15th. "This is the "  latest press message known to have  left Pekin.    Ifc continues as folluws:  "A crowd of Boxers* occupies the _  street, cutting off communication  between the buildings. A few  Boxers are parading the cifcy. The  position in regard to foreigners is  pitiable. The Boxers hold tiie officers of Tung Chun i'or redemption.  Anarchy reigns tit that place. The -  Americans in the interior of two  neighboring provinces have been  .advised to leave, bufc several have  no means of doing so.  'Tidees a relief force is sent there '  is danger.of a massacre of n'ltivo  Christians. A large Chine'-e army  is ready to oppose fche relief column  ou the way here. The Chinese  government cannot decide whether  to adopt the policy of rigidly suppressing* the Boxers or that of  defying the world. The decision  rests with the dowager empn>s��."  Coomassie Belief Column.  London, June 17.���Tne Daily Express has received the following dispatch, dated Friday, from Prahsun:  No additional news is to hand from  Coomassie. The incessant rains aie  delaying the advance of the relief  column which is likely to see some  tough work. Seven wounded  oflicers and 130 men are expected  here from  the  front.  Troops for China.  Manila, Juno 17.���The gunboat  Concord, with marines aboard, has  sailed under sealed orders, supposedly for China.

It is a great pity thafc this  should be so. Holies of our  historic struggles tire richly  prized, and ifc is hard that  those who hold genuine mementoes  should have to watch the tolerant  smile on the cynical lips of those to>  whom they show them wifch pride.  In the case of the pencils made  from dum-dum bullets gathered on  the Held of Onulurman, the work,  with lord Kitchener's authority,  wa.s placed in the hands of an irreproachable London lirm, and everybody who purchased a pencil knew  that lie held in his hand a genuine  relic of a great deed. Happily it is  not too late for something of the  same sort to bo done in regard to  South Africa, and in the meantime  the public should possess their souls  iu patience.

Tiik  prohibition measure wliich  premier Macdonald has introduced  iu the Manitoba legisfcnre can hardly  be expected   to  please   the   ultra  IDrohibitionisfco*, though they   may  aeeepfc ifc as an advance in tho direc-  of total   prohibition.     "While   the  measure does  not prohibit either  the manufacture,   importation   or  ���whole-s'ale   dealing   in    liquors,   ifc  SJeiningly does prohibit the retail  sale of such liquor.    I fc would, therefore, appear that fche operation of  the law -would have the effect of  destroying the saloon interest, and  incidentally    considerable   of   the  provincial revenues.     With   most  politicians the financial side of the  prohibition question has received  the greatest attention, but in Manitoba this issue appeal s to have been  relegated to second place, greater  importance beiug attached to the  right of the individual to consume  as much liquor as he chooses in his  own home. The sole restriction  upon home di inking appears to be,  that in cases where the householders get too jolly, the privilege  of keeping liquor in the house will  be denied ^theni. It must be said  that the Manitoba measure is unique in the way of prohibition legislation. It does not strike at any  man's rights, to get drunk,'but ifc  preset ibes that he shall nofc get  liquor to drink from any licensed  retail dealer. One effecfc of such  legislation would certainly do away  with the treating system, but it remains to be seen whether the saloon  interest will consent to be saciificed  in a compromise between those who  contend that no men have a right  to chink, and those who contend  they have the same liberties with  lespeet to drinking as they have  with respect to eating.  Tn 13 Conservatives of Vancouver  are making every effort to have  Charles "Wilsou Q.C., counted in as  ono of Vancouver'!*- representatives.  On the first count, on the night of  election, the Conservative leader  was just six votes below Gilmour  the Martin candidate, and failed of  election. This was not considered  sufficient! y_safe_by_exii)reinitr_ Joe,  so he had an official count and stood  afc the returning officer's elbow so  thafc there should be no mistakes.  The icsult was that every Martin  candidate ^wont ujj the scale while  all their opponents* came down and  Gilmour secured a plurality of twenty-one votes over Wilson instead of  six. The conditions of the official  count were nob safci&Faetory to the  Conservatives. With Martin as a  contestant, judge, lefcice, starter  aud .stakeholder fchey do not consider they wero fairly treated and  fchey will now havo a recount before  one of the judge6-.      Sham War Sehcs.  The   public  should   be  on   their  guard against  buying  too  readily  mementoes   of   fche  war  in  South  Africa.    A correspondent, wiitiug  to an   Knglish  contempoiary, tells  fche stoiy of a visit paid by a fi iend  of hia fco a workshop  in  the Black  Forest, showing thafc sham mementoes aro aheady being  turned  out,  and iu the gro&s.    The  vioifcor was  amused to note that the workpeople  afc this factory were turning oufc at  lightning speed paper-knives, pincushion?,      cigarette-boxof-.       and  match-boxes, fche majoi ifcy of which  were   marked   wifch  the   seducing  legend,  "Made of wood grown at  Ladysmith."    Some,  however, boie  thematic of "The Modder," others  of   '���Kimberley,"   "Belmont"    and  "G'raspan," while, wifch  commercial  confidence in  fche omnipotence of  Briti.sh    arms,   there    wore   relics  marked   with   wood    taken   from  His Qualification.  Hanbury Williams in Blackwood's Magazine0relates the following anecdote regarding the enlistment of recruits at Calgary for  Strathcona's Horse: One man, they  told me, presented himself to the  recruiting officer, and stated his  various qualifications strongly but  concisely. The officer looked at  him and said: "Where have I seen  you before? Why you've been convicted three times for horsestealing!"  "'Ye0, sir," lesponded the unabashed volunteer hopefully, "aud  I've brought my rope!"  The sequel of the story is unau-  tlienticated, bufc ifc is whispered  fchafc that officer will nevei be short  of a good horse if there is one anywhere in the neighborhood during  a campaign.
