 DAILY EDlflON   BY MAiL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  .   TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON":  WEDNESDAY MORNING JUNE 13 J900.  PRICE EIYE CENTS  GLANCE ROUND THE TEAMS  r-    Nelson Athletics.  The lacrosse club will hold the  boards at the recreation grounds  tonight, this being their regular-  practice night. Every member of  the club who desires a place on the  team for the matches at Greenwood  and at home, should be present  with as many other enthusiasts as  ��� arc willing to get into the game.  Monday's practice was cancelled to  give the football club a chance to  open the season, and the necessity  for a full practice tonight is all the  ^greater for that reason.  / All football enthusiasts are re-  t quested to bear in mind the meeting at the Waverley hotel tonight.  New members will be elected and  other business dispatched. The  club will go in for regulation outfits  including football shoos at once.  The association football club is. according to its officers, in the game  for keeps. Other clubs have been  organi/.ed here but tlieir existence  lias been more or less ephemeral,  depending largely upon the priz.es  in sight. The new club announces  that it is here to stay, and if the  measure of enthusiasm evidenced at  the fiist practice is maintained, it  will prove to be one of Nelson's  premier sporting organizations.  The football club is endeavoring  to arrange for a tournament here  on July 2nd and 3rd, during the  Dominion day celebration. They  propose to invite the Trail, Kaslo  and Silverton twelves to play here,  the idea being to have matches, say  Trail vs. Nelson on the morning of  the 2nd inst, and Kaslo vs. Silver-  ton on the afternoon of the same  day, the winners to play off on the  following day. An application will  be made to the celebration committee for a grant toward defraying  tho expenses of the visiting teams.  In this respect ifc is unfortunate  that the footballists did not get into  the field earlier, because the celebration committee's available funds  aw pretty well appropriated, but  the club is prepared to rustle for  the funds, if the committee will extend it helping hand, which it will  undoubtedly do.       _  The gun club has extended an in-  vj barton to the Revelstoke, Fernie  and Silverton clubs to shoot here  on one of the days of the celebration, and anticipate that at leabt  two of the "teams will accept. A  pri/.e of $50 for the team shoot will  be offered and other prizes will be  arranged later when it is known  more fully what funds will be  available. The gnu club is a live  (organization and the Saturday  afternoon practices are well attended. Several of tho members  "who started as novices when the  season opened are now killing tlieir  birds handily and the averages are  improving rapidly.  The Hudson's Bay Stores will have  a- good four in the competitions.  Two crews have been picked as follows: No. 1���McAdam, Fisher,  Blaney aud Greenlees; No. 2���MeLeod., Dynes, Kelloway and Douche.  No. 2 crew practiced last night and  No. 1 team is slated for a spin tonight.  If the Rossland and Kaslo mili-'  tary companies come to Nelson on  Dominion Day a few military competitions should be added to the  list of sports. The Victoria Cross  race is a popular event among  militiamen and is well worth; witnessing. In this competition the  -,volunteers pair off and half of the  competitors march for some 50  yards where they fall on a volley  from the remainder. The men who  fired then rush oufc and each takes  hi.s partner on his back and returns  to the starting point, the first man  to cross the scratch with his comrade on his back winning the race.  There are other and equally interesting military races which might  be introduced.  COMMUNICATION RESTORED  The scores mado by the first team  in the G. M. R. A. slioot last Saturday were an improvement on the  former week's figures. The best  individual score was lower, bufc the  average was better, and tins is  what will bring the team aggregate  sip. The iirst team lias shot creditably, and Nelson will be in a fair  position wheu the returns from tho  entire Dominion are published, particularly if the members practice  on the Saturdays intervening before the next association match on  July Oth. _   A jiumber of baseball sports are  anxiously inquiring as to whether  manager Charlie Waterman has  loosened up on the $50 which he  won from Jim McPhee over Sun-  clay's ball game. Any reader who  can furnish authentic information  on the point will confer a favor on  the baseball fans.  The intermediate laero.sse club is  in. the anomalous condition of being  ���unable fco find opponents wifch whom  to play. The members are practicing witli tho benior team and  have a good outfit of sticks, etc.,  but up fco date they havc failed to  ���dig up another intermediate team  in the district.  The local oarsmen are taking to  practice work for tiie water carnival sports enthusiastically. It is  early to state what crews will compete, as the process of selection is  under way, but the hcheme of  allowing as many crews to enter as  care to compete, aud relieving fche  secretary of the responsibility of  members taking exercise seems fco  be   working   most    satisfactorily.  Every baseball rooter in Nelson  has an opportunity at the present  time to place himself on record.  Manager Waterman has a proposition from the Spokane Falls and  Northern railroad with regard to  rates for the Spokane trip ou the  22nd. If the trip is patronized by  50 people a rate of $9 50, just one  fare, will be given for the round  trip. J f the number is less than 50,  one and a third fare will be  charged, .$12.05. Mr. Waterman  wants every enthusiast who will  go in for the trip to say so now in  order that a sufficient guarantee  can be secured to obtain the lower  rate.    BIC CHANCE WILL BE MADE  Japan's Preparations.  London, June 12.���The - correspondents at Tien Tsin, Shanghai  aud other treaty ports throw some  light upon tiie situation. According to one dispatch from Tien Tsin  it is understood there that fche for-,  eign ministers will all insist as .soon  as fresh, bayonets arrive at Pekin,  upon the removal of the anti-foreign advisers of the empress dowager and upon the substitution of  counsellors friendly fco western  civilization. The English at Shanghai are afraid fchat Great Britain  has been deceived and that the  whole business will have to be gone  through again. Russia's aims, they  argue, are not understood, and Russia and France are apparently not  working in harmony with the other  powers. Five thousand Russians  are ready to land at Taku,  A telegram from Yokohama, dated Tuesday, says thafc the Japanese  government has ordered five more  warships to proceed to Taku, and  -��000 men of all arms, are under orders to be iu immediate readiness  for embarkation. The dispatch  says ���the���Japanese��� government  trusts the powers will not misconstrue this action. The Japanese  press i*3 urging vigorous methods.  Landing More Troops.  Tien Tsin, June 12,���One hundred and sixty-three British landed  "lasfc evening and an additional 20  British have been sent to Fong  Shatt. This morning a special train  leffc Tien Tsin for Yang Tsun, to  bring general Nieh io consult with  the viceroy. The Russian warships  are at Taku and the Russian torpedo boats are in the river Taku.  Want of transports prevents the  Russians from landing troops. The  Russians are very active here today. It is rumored that general  Fung Fah Siang, with many thousand troops is at Feng Tai. The  latest news from Pao Ting Fu, is  that the Boxers 0000 strong, are attacking the Catholic convent there.  The situation is critical and the officials are evidently inactive. The  United States war ships Nashville  and Monacacy are expeeted at Taku.  Uitlanders Would Return.  London, June 12.���The colonial  office has received a telegram from  sir Alfred Milner dated June 8,  saying: '"The chamber of mines at  Cape Town has agreed upon 580  representatives of IU leading mining and other companies, who will  proceed to Johannesburg as soon as  lord Roberts says that ifc is practicable to receive them. Sir Milner  asserts fchat he is doing all thafc is  possible to re-open fche business, but  is discouraging the return of the  Uitlanders until the question oi'  transportation and food supplies is  re-established. J  Buller's Progress.  London, June 18.���Two pieces of  news encouraging to the British in  the official dispatches, are that the  broken communications of lord  Roberts are in a fair way to be  mended by the forces moving northwards and southwards and driving  off the roving commandoes, and  that sir Redvers Buller is at last  master of Laing's Nek. Telegraphic communication with lord Roberts is expected to be restored today, as a dispatch from Bloemfontein yesterday says that the railway is in British possession again,  and that the work of repairing the  line is going on speedily with the  supplies of warehouses. From the  subjoined telegram it would appear  that general Hunter was in command of the troops referred to by  general Kelly-Kenny in his dispatch from Bloemfontein.  "Bloemfontein, Junel2���General  Hunter is coming up rapidly from  the northwest, having severely defeated a large commando who had  destroyed two miles of railway  north of Kroonstadt."  On June 7th four divisions of  burghers, commanded by Steen-  kamp, Froneraan and Neil, attacked  the British at Roodeval, killed 200,  took 700 prisoners, and captured a  lot of stores, food and ammunition,  a maxim gun and 1000 lyddite  shells. Some food was taken by  the Boer farmers and the rest was  burned.  General Dewet was also fighting  on June (5, whether at Roodeval or  elsewhere, is not clear, bufc the  Boer war office gives it out that he  captured 4,000 suits of clothing,  blankets, gloves, boots, etc. Being  unable to carry them with him in  his rapid march through the  country, according to the Transvaal, war office, he burned the  whole mass. General Dewet ha9  also reported that he put J000  British oufc of action*and destroyed  property valued at ��15,000."  As lord Methuen is officially described as fighting on June 7, it is  possible that he was engaged with  general Dewet.  According to a dispatch to the  Daily Express from Machadorp,  dated June 10th, via Lorenzo Marquez, those around president Kruger say that Louis Botha and Delarey have been offered indirectly  ^��10,000 a year to lay down their  arms, and president Kruger expects the same offer to be made to  himself, president Steyn and general Dewet. President Kruger believes that the British make these  offers to stop the war on the principle that ifc would cost less than to  fight ifc oirt.  ���A dispatch from Lorenzo Marquez says thafc 15,000 Boers are reported to be retiring on Middleburg  from various quarters, and, that  after weeding out the faint hearted,  20,000 steadfast-men are still lef tl  Lord Methuen, general Rundle  and general* Brabant are reported  to have 35,000 men and 50 guns en-  Umted States, reached this city on  Sunday on the Dominion Line  steamship Dominion. ' When leaving the steamer Mack was recognized by deputy collector Toughy  of ��� the United States customs  station in the city. Mr. Toughy  followed them to Toronto, sitting  behind them in the car, and overhearing part of their conversation.  He wired P. Lewis, the officer  stationed at the Suspension Bridge,  N. Y., to meet him in Toronto, and  that officer followed the two men  across the border.  STEAMER DID NOT SEE THEM  Adventures on Arrow Lakes.  Rossland, June 12.���Duncan  Kennedy, broker, and Thomas Rob-  berts, mining man, arrived in the  city today after a rather trying experience on the shores of Arrow  lake. They went some 20 miles  above Dog creek to examine some  claims owned by Kennedy. The  steamer people promised to tell the  down coming steamer to pick them  up in the afternoon, but failed to do  so and the down steamer failed to  heed their signals. They determined  to walk down the shores of the lake  to Dog creek.  There are a series  of cliffs  from  800 to 1000 feet highj and every half  mile they were compelled to climb  over these  cliffs.    In  ordor  to  do  this they had to go back sometimes  two miles.   In two days they had  traveled only about 13 miles." They  were   without  food and   suffered  horribly.  Finally, on the third day,  Kennedy gave out and laid down  on the beach as he could go no further.    Roberts went on, and on the  fourth day reached Dog Creek and  sent a boat after his friend.    In the  meanwhile Kennedy became delirious   as   he   lay    on   the   beach,  and    could    see   ships,   steamers  and   skiffs   coming   to   his   relief,  apparently,   but   none    of    them  reached him, as they would disappear in the water or in the > air before they came close to the  shore.  He was taken  to Dog* creek,  the  boat being  capsized  on the way,  but fortunately  it  was  near   the  shore   and   they were enabled to  right it and resume  their" journey.  Had fchey been in the middle of the  lake they would' surely have been  drowned.  *  Roberts and Kennedy, after a  few days rest at Dog creek, returned to this cifcy today.  gaged in enclosing the Boers in the  eastern part of Orange River  Colony.  The war office casualty returns  up to June Oth aggregate 22,064,  besides 592 officers and 12,355 men  sent home as invalids, but uot including the sick in South African  hospitals,   Schreiner and the Traitors.  Capk Town, June < 12. ���Premier  Schreiner is engaged in reforming  the cabinet owing to the resignation of J. Merria m. treasurer; J. W.  Sauer, commissioner of public  works, and. T. T. Water, minister  without portfolio. At tho recent  bond caucus the premier's policy  was generally condemned. The  chief point of difference relates to  the treatment of rebels. Mr.  Schreiner urged a scheme, recommended by the imperial government, under whicli a special  tribunal will try' the rebels. Convicted leaders will be imprisoned  and perpetually disfranchised, and  the rank and file "will be disfranchised for a 'period. It is understood that Mr. Sehreiner's policy  will be supported by the entire  loyalist [party, wliich is endorsed  by the loyal public opinion of South  Africa.   Smugglers Arrested.  Montreal, June 12.���J. Mack of  Boston, and D. P. Vandembaigue of  Eastman, Quebec, who were arrested at Niagara Falls, N. Y., today on the charge of smuggling  $75,000 worth of diamonds into the  PROGRAMME RE-ARRANOED  Meeting of Celebration Committees  The general committee of the  Dominion Day celebration held  another session yesterday afternoon and re-arranged in some respects the program of sports for  July 2nd and 3rd. As now settled  upon the program will be as   fol-  -low&t   Monday���11 a, m., trades procession; 1 p. in., hub and hub  race; 2  m.  in.,  baseball  game; 2 p.  m.. re-  p"  gatta begins; Op. m., Winnipeg-  Victoria-Vancouver four-oared race:  7:30 p. in., bicycle races.  Tuesday���0 a. m.< Caledonian  sports; 10 a. m., drilling contest: 1  p. m., wet tost; 3 p. ra., baseball  game; 8 p. m , water carnival.  Two applications for funds were  received. One was from tho Lacrosse club, who want $150 to bring  the Greenwood team here on celebration, day. The committee decided that they could do nothing at  present owing to lack of funds, but  if more money is raised they will  go into the matter again.  The other was from fche Nelson  gun club, who announced their  ability to raise $50 or .$00 if the  committee would double tiie  amount.    Ifcs request was grated.  McGovern Wins Again.  New Yokk, June 12.���Terry Me-  Govern of Brooklyn knocked out  Tommy White of Chicago in the  third round of what was to have  been a twenty-five round contest,  at 128 pounds, before the Coney  Island Sporting Club tonight. The  little champion gave his opponent  no rest from the first sound of the  gong in the opening round until the  referee had counted off the fatal  ten seconds.  Chilian Flying {Squadron.  Lima, Peru, June 12.���A powerful  Chilian flying squadron of six  vessels anchored oil' Arica Monday.  They will remain for a week and  will then proceed south.  MISSIONARIES   IN  DANCER  Chinese Situation.  Washington, June 12.���3Ir. Martin is the  United States consul at  Chin Kiang and his telegram is the  first news received here to indicate  the spread of the Boxer agitation  in that section.    Chin Kiang is one  of the most important treaty ports  in   China.    It   is   located, on   the  Yang Tse Kiang, a little over one  hundred   miles   above   the   point  where the Woshung  enters and is  about one hundred and twenty-five  '"miles.from Shanghai.   At the latter port the   United   States gunboats, Yorktown and Castine, are  now lying undergoing repairs.   The  extent of the repairs is not known  by the war department. - 'lb is said  that one or both of the gunboats  might be sent to Chin Kiang in the  course of a day or two.  There is au intimation afc the  state department that the consul at  Chin Kiang has exaggerated the  danger of the situation, and that  the mere halting near the town of  some Boxers is not evidence that  they have any hostile intentions  against the American consulate. It  is probable that in the absence of  more serious developments no ship  will be sent to Ching Kiang. The  town is nearly 300 miles southeast  of Pekin, but fortunately is much  more accessible to foreign war-ships  and vessels drawing as much as 25  feet of water.  One of the dispatches received  this morning was from another consular officer in Chiua, but it was  stated that it conveyed no news of  importance aud its contents were  not made public.  The pressure on president McKiniey and the department of state  from the missionary interest is increasing daily. It is desired that  relief-expeditions sent out by the  United States government to secure the safety of the missions in  outlying Chinese towns, and tho intimation is conveyed fchat troops  might be employed for that purpose. Nothing has beeu added to  Mr. Conger's1 report thafc would endanger the safety of them. If this  task is to be undertaken by him,  something more than the limited  force of Uniten States marines now  available at Taku, Pekin or- Manila  will be required, and the administration is'not disposed to go beyond  that limit.  Strike on the Sunset.  Greenwood, June 12.���Superintendent Johns reports an immense  strike at the 200-foot level of the  Sunset iu Deadwood camp. The  ore was encountered in the drift  320 feefc from the shaft. Thirty-  seven feet of heavy sulphide ore.  chioiiy pyrrhotifce, has been passed  through'. It is a typical Deadwood  camp lode with this distinction,  that the ore is more heavily charged with pyrrhotifce ancl_ carries  more' gol<I ~aln~d~leslf "copper than is  usual in that cam]). The mine is  owned by the Montreal-Boundary  Creek company, and is equipped  wifch one of the largest plants in  the district.  Strike For Fifteen Cents.  St. John's, Newfoundland, June  12.���A serious strike has taken  place afc tho Belleville mines, a few  miles from Sfc. John, where 2000  men are employed. The Dominion  Iron and Steel Company recently  purchased large hematite deposits  there, to supply the iron for the  new settling works afc Sydney. The  Nova Scotia Steel Company has a  mine in fche same territory, and the  miners employed by both companies have made a demand for 15  cents an hour. Their present pay  is ten cenfcs.  -jm?:^____.^  wwi����g^��*<.ff3$fflff>��3?^  Explorer's Journey,  London, June J2.���Doctor Donald Smith, the Philadelphia explorer, who recently reached Cairo  in good health, had a remarkable  journey from Berber via lakes Rudolf and Sfcefanie. From Uganda  he was conveyed down fche Nile to  Khartoum in an Anglo-Egyptian  gunboat, fche first vessel to traverse  the Upper Nile since fche coming of  the Sudd (a floating mass of vegetables thafc obstructs navigation).  Dr. Smith accomplished much interesting work in hitherto unexplored  regions.  American Locomotives in France.  Paris. June 12.���In the official  room of fclie machinery exhibits afc  Vincennes ii a locomotive manufactured in America for the state.  The   action   of    the minister   of  a^S?i#  public works, Baudin, in exposing  such an exhibit has aroused much  feeling among French engine builders   who were at   first displeased  with the government for having recourse to American skill and then  resented what they 0 considered to  be au official advertisement of their  American   competitors.      M. Gan-  sette, Republican member for one  of the divisions of the Lille department    of    the    North,   who    represents      important      manufacturing  interests   voiced    this   discontent today in the chamber, of  deputies, demanding   to know why  the   government   is advertising a  foreign manufacturer, to fche detriment of French engineers, M. Colliers, socialist deputy and a working engineer, interrupting with the  the remark:   "You know such locomotives can be built in   France."  M. Gansette insisted, however, that  the inclusion of the locomotive in  the official exhibit was  casting discredit on French industry, against  which the society of French  engin- |  eers had protested to the commissioner-general   of   the   exposition.  M. Baudin replied that the locomotive was exhibited in order to show  the completeness of the state railroads. These locomotives, he continued, had been ordered in America because French workshops were too  busy. Moreover with the American  engines were  French   locomotives  which were worthy of comparison  with it.    The  minister   of   public  works   concluded   with   reviewing  the articles  of the critics, asking  whether foreigners were invited to  exhibit with the intention of afterwards hiding their exhibits.   The  matter was then dropped.  FUTURE OF THE REPUBLICS  Will Be Crown Colonies.  London, June 12.���It is learned  by the Associated Press that the  government has at last decided  upon a plan for the civil settlement  of South Africa. The" details are  kept most secret, but*ifc ean safely  be said that the Orange River  colony and the Transvaal will become crown colonies, fche latter  probably being named the Transvaal colony. Sir Alfred Milner, it  is declared, is to be high commissioner of South Africa in spite of  the opposition that he has incurred.  The crown colony form of government can best be understood by  a reference to the 4 system in vogue  in the West Indies. Sierra Leone  and Ceylon. ' Endeavors will be  made to put this in force ab soon as  possi ble in the Transvaal and Orange River colonies, though ifc*is  scarcely expected that the details  will be announced or some part of  the work be begun for a fewmonths  yet.  While the civil settlement will be  drawn up so as to be eventually  independent of military en force-  men t._ifc_is realized thai the initial  work must be effected with the cooperation of troops. Sir Alfred  Milner appears fco believe thafc the  civil reorganization and military  pacification can proceed simultaneously, and that a possible  scattered rising would not seriously  retard the progress once it is  begun. The colonial office is said  to be of the opinion, however, that  the maintenance of good sized garrisons at centres, such as Bloemfontein, Kroonstad, Johannesburg  aud Pretoria will be necessary for  a long time after the crown colony  system gets into working order.  Politics at Vancouver,  Vancouver, June 12.���[Special  to The Tribune.)���There is very little change iu fche political situation  here since election. The attitude  of "waiting for something to turn  up" is noticeable on all sides. Ifc is  said thafc J. C. Brown, finance minister, elected in New Westminster,  is angling after the shortly to be  vacated berth of collector of customs, when Mr. Peter Grant is super:  annuated, a step expected shortly.  Brown has been chasing premier  Martin round corners bufc fche Hon.  Joe is "Not at Home" to him, evidently having heard thafc Brown  wants to resign with this plum in  view, and feeling sore afc it. There  is an unconfirmed report that mayor  Garden and It. G. Tatlow, old members here on ihe Conservative party  lines ticket, have already offered  their assistance to J. II. Turner, a  step which is viewed with some sur*  pri.se, especially as it has been intimated from several Mainland  points that a resuscitation of the  Island parfcy would be anything bufc  welcome.  MARINES BEAT THE BOXERS  Many Were Killed.  London, June 12.���Sixteen British marines, reconnoitering in advance of the International column  marching to Pekin, fought and  chased 2000 Boxers on Monday, and  killed 20 or 30. A correspondent  accompanied them. In a dispatch  dated Tien Tsin, June 12, via Shanghai, June 13, he says:  "While the working parties,  accompanied by a patrol of 10  British marines commanded by  major Johnson, were repairing the  line on Monday afternoon they encountered a small party of Boxers  who were destroying the line. The  Boxers moved away from the advancing marines and dispersed into  the country, leaving the rails moved  aiid the sleepers burning.  "The marines, when two miles in  advance of the first train, near  Lang Fang, suddenly perceived the  "Boxers" coming from a village on  their left. It was estimated they  numbered 2000, some of them being  .armed with spears and swords. A  few had firearms, which they handled awkwardly. The marines re- .  treated, keeping up a running fire  for over a mile, and killed between  20 and 30.  "Unless their loss causes the Boxers to lose heart the international  column will have much trouble before it reaches Pekin. The railway  is so much damaged that the coL- ,  umn only covered thirty-four miles  on Sunday and Monday, and there  is reason to fear the road beyond is  still more badly damaged.  Evidence of general Nieh's operations were found in headless bodies. Tho whole country presented  a desolate 'aspect, entire villages  having been deserted. The expedition numbers 2014, as follows:  British 915, Germans 250, Russians  300, French 128, Americans 104,  Japanese 52, Italians 40 and Aus-  trians 25. - ,       . r  The Times in an extra edition  publishes the following dispatch  from Pekin, dated June 12 th. 2 p.m.:  "The chancellor of the Japanese  legation, Sugiyama Akini, while  proceeding alone and unprotected  on official duty, was brutally murdered by the soldiers of Tung Fu  Siang. the favorite bodyguard of  the empress, at Mauigate railroad  station yesterday."  Charges Against Sifton.  Ottawa,   Juno   12���[Special  to  The Tribune], --in the house today  Davin moved an amendment to T  supply, which took the greater part  of the day, alleging that Stftou  changed the timber regulations in  Manitoba west for the purpose, of  giving Theodore Burrows, M.

They realize the advantage of a successful celebration, and  for this reason the celebration this  year will not only equal but surpass that of 1899.  West Kootenay is by far the  most important district in the province, so far as mining is concerned.  For the year ending December 31st,  1S00, 180!), there were 355 crown  grants issued for mineral claims  situate in the district, as against  a total of 211 in the remainder of  the province. In Kast Kootenay  crown grants were issued for 21  claims, S in Lillooet, 111 in Yale, 15  in Alberni, 3S in Xanaimo, 0 in  Xew Westminster, and !) in Victoria.  The tenders for supplying pipe  suitable for making service connection wifch the water mains in this  city shows thafc such supplies can  be purchased cheaper in Xelson  than anywhere else iu the province.  The Lawrence Hardware Company's bid was a quarter of a cent  lower on half-inch pipe and one-  half cent lower on three-quarter  inch pipe than the bid of one of the  wholesale hardware houses of Vancouver. Xelson is a wholesale center, because her merchants undersell the merchants of rival cities.  1 ^^^ *** *^__ti   *  Mr  Xli  Xli  Xit  Xit  Xit  vi/  Xit  xli  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.

Nehon already enjoys an enviable iepilation for the manner jn which ifc has  celebrated Canada's  natal  day for  fche past nine years, and by oach  year adding some new attraction to  the celebration  programme  ifc will  maintain the great  advantage   it,  already  enjoys.      Jfc  is important  that Nelson should' continue to be  iir.sfc.    There  is a  business  side to  the Annual celebrations of Dominion  Day.    Jt is  something more  than  fireworks and brass bands.   They  induce   people   to    vi.��ifc    Nelson,  and   afford   au    opportunity    for  their   becoming   acquainted   wifch  the   business   men   of    tbe    cifcy,  and thus incidentally tend  to extend the trade of Nelson merchants.  It i.s this feature probably which  induces the merchants and manufacturers to go to the expenditures  which thoy do in making individual  .showings, and   in   promoting the  general .success of fche celebrations.  Now thafc the elections are over  ifc is to be hoped that'the dominant  party will not overlook the promises which were made with respect  to the checking of Japanese immigration. There is a genuine cause  for apprehension in the thousands  of Japanese who are now pouring  into the province. It is recognized  in the United States as well as in  the Dominion and the fulfillment of  premier Laurier's promise to remedy  tbe evil will be anxiously awaited.  The rate of taxation in Nelson is  the lowest of any city in Canada,  barring none. The rate levied this  year is less than one per cent, based  on the assessed value of the real estate and one-half the assessed value  of the improvements. This should  be taken into consideration by people looking for homes.

Fort Stkelb, June 11.���One" of  the most singular things which has  ever occurred in this province was  the mysterious disappearance of  ono of the ballot boxes from the  office of returning officer Ede. From  what can be learned it was taken  aboufc ! I o'clock Sunday evening.  Policeman Barnes was called when  the theffc was first discovered, and  on the statemcnt~of_ "Dan "Munroe,"  D. Stadlandei* was arrested and  lodged in jail. Jlis preliminary examination was held this afternoon,  all of the evidence for the* crown  was taken and three days were  given for the defence to prepare its  case. Munroe's testimony was to  the effect that lie saw 'Stadlander  with the box under liis arm, positively identifying ifc as a ballot box.  No one else seems to have seen tho  box in the possession of Studlander.  Other witnesses testify that fche returning officer was drunk, and that  Stadlander aud another man went  with him to his oflicc. What was  done there no one tcutns to know  clearly, but the ballot box is gone,  and no trace of ifc has been found.  The loss of the box does not invalidate fche election, as fche record of  votes had'becii taken. It is generally believed to be the work "of  ���borne drunkard who thought to re  turn tho box, but such au excitement was created when the loss  became known thafc ho was afraid.  The box was taken from "Wa&a, one  of the small polling places, and  would nofc, iu any event, have  effected fche result.  Xlt  Xli  Xli  xit  Xit  Xli  Mrs. Kenly, Artist and Teacher.

Toionlo World.  According  to  Russell  Sage,  the  New York financier, the new enterprises which will spring up in South  Africa on the restoration of peace  will  prove such an attractive  investment for capital that the rates  for money will be materially advanced.    This would seem to indicate that a boom of very considerable dimensions is about to spread  over South Africa.    The Philadelphia Record urges American manufacturers to get ready to take advantage of it.   Exporters of machinery, furniture and provisions, espee-r  ially,  are   advised   to place   their  goods in South Africa, in anticipation of the great demand for such  articles fchafc will arise on the pacification of the .country.    It is to be  hoped some efforts will be made oy  the Canadian government to obtain  a foothold for Canadian products in  South Africa.   There ought to, be  some means whereby Canada and  the other'British colonies will-have  a preference over foreign manufacturers   in the   markets   ofr South  Africa.    Why should not the colonies make an effort of their own to  introduce _n system  of preferential  tariffs within the empire.   A system of reciprocal tariffs could easily  be arranged between Canada, Australia and Sou th Africa.    The goods  imported by South Africa are .such  as Canada could, to a large extent*  supply.     The   demand   for   flour,  meat and provisions generally will  be -very   large,   raid   Canada .can,  supply these jusfc as well as the  United States.   As for   furniture,  we ought to be able to compete  with any other country, and  the  same thing is true in regard to certain lines of machinery.   This Ques-  _tiou__ip_ono_that_the_boards of trade  should take up. wifch a view to suggesting to   fche government   some  line of action.   And i-he time to  make a move is the present moment,  before our rivals have got possession  of the market.   Going From Bad to Worse.  Boston, Mass., June 12.���F. E.

A revolution which  may result in the death of hundreds of foreigners and the overthrow of the empire may break out  any moment.

HOW   BURNHAM   ESCAPED.  Tho disaster to the  British  convoy at .Sauna's Post on March  'list  was witnessed by the famous scout,  K. \l. Burnham under extraordinary  circumstances.      He   was   sent by  lord Roberts to get information and  make a map of Thaba .'Nchu. Burnham came within a mile  of  Koorn  Spruit (the scene of the subsequent  disaster) as day was  breaking, and  saw to his  dismay, a  long  convoy  of  guns  and  wagons   pressing on  wibh all speed towards  the  spruit,  in which he knew lay hundreds  of  the enemy in ambush ; tho advance  of  the convoy, as  far as he could  judge, being unprotected   by any  .scouts or advanced guard.    Mounting a little rising ground, some  200  yards  behind   the    spruit,  he  endeavored by waving a red handkerchief,    to    warn    the    advancing  convoy     of     its      danger,      but  to    no   purpose, ' as   his     signals  were   unnoticed���or,  at any  rate,  not understood���and  as  his  presence was naturally  soon  perceived  by   the   Boers   he  was soon   surrounded   and   made prisoner.    He  was then taken to a cattle kraal, or  enclosure,  whicli   was   filled   with  Boers, and-there made to lie down.  Beiug    able,     however,     to    look  through a hole in the stone wall.he  could   see  perfectly well  all  that  occurred.     .

The whole story says much  for the powers of endurance and  resource possessed by the man, and  for the remarkable facility with  whicli one trained to such work can  pass unobserved through an enemy's country. A man like Burnham could ill have been spared, and  ib is perhaps a matter of regret  that the British army does not  possess a few more highly-trained  scouts like him.  GATACRE   AND  OLIVIER.

His  attempts to escape, wliich  had  occupied his mind from  the first,  may  -perhaps  be   told   at   length.1   Immediately   after    his   capture   he  feigned an injury to his  log, round  tvhieb. ho tied his handkerchief and  walked lame, to,lead liis guards  to  Mippose     that     there    was   little  danger     of     hta     getting    away.  Ho '   was     ab    ' first     pub     into  t he   field    cornet's     wagon     with  t.lie officers, but beiug .unwilling to  gob the field cornet into-trouble, as  he knew, would be'the case if he escaped from tlio charge of that  oflieer. he gob our  officers  to  protest  against his being wibh them on the  gt'ound of his   not being an  officer,  a.nd was aeeoidingly transferred tp  another wagon.    Something having  aroused the suspicions of tlio  commandant a Bushman  was  put   in  especial charge of him, and liis  efforts to elude  bins native's   vigilance were for a long time of no  avail.    J hiring the halt of the  second   night  (Sunday)" the   wagons  were laagered  up in  a   circle,   the  -prisoners  being all  in  the  ceiiter,  :uid being   warned that at any attempt to  p:ss.s  outside they would  be at once shot by  the   guards.  Jlurnhani, 'however, determined to  make the attempt, and   rolling  the  blanket into.a bundle, and lying on  his     face,     he     gradually ,edged  * himself under a wagon, ind for a  considerable distance outside, pushing his blanket roll in, front of him,  nnd trying to pass between two" of  the guards, one of whom he thought  showed  signs of   sleepine&s.   This  attempt)"however,  failed,  and  before daybreak tho scout had to give  it, up, and succeeded in  making his  way back undetected.  The next day he managed to got  a seat in front of the rear wagon of  the convoy; and seizing a moment  (just before daybreak, atthe end of  a night trek) when the Bushman  who was guarding him had gone  forward to look to the harness of  the oxen, he dropped off the'  wagon and ran at full speed  to a neighboring kopje, at the  foot of which was a farmhouse.  Finding a deep furrow or drain,  just deep enough to conceal him, he  lay down in it, and remained so  hidden, during the entire day, suffering much from hunger, thirst and  heat and tho fear of recapture.  The people of the farm, as well as  tho Boers (the convoy having  halted quite near), constantly  passed close to him. When night  citine, though at Iirst suffering agonies from cramps can bed by lying  no long immovable, he started on.  his way toward Bioemfontein, guiding himself by the stars. Eventually, after running .several narrow  o_e ipes at the bauds of natives, and  jn one case from a Boer (who forfcn- |  The Daily News, special   correspondent,   writing   from   the Free  State on April 1, gives  an  account  of a conversation with a Boer leader, which throws light on the character of   Olivier.    I may be   very  much in the  wrong (ho says), but I  do not   consider the average  Boer  to be half, so  devoid  of   everyday  common sense as so" many  writers  have described him to  be.    Here is  a description of the battle of Stormberg,   which   goes  to   prove that  these farmers are not noodles.    We  had been watching general Gatacre  at Stormberg for quite  a while; we  wanted to surprise him if we could,  and cut him up.    Our  geueral  Olivier is one  of the  "slimmest"  men  in all Africa.    You don't know Olivier.    If you   Britishers   were   to  talk to him you would reckon him  up   as   a   rather    stupid    sort   of  fellow.   He   knows how to  know  nothing���when  it suits  him.     He  can make his face as expressionless  as a back wall of a cemetery on a  wet day, even when he is just boiling with  excitement inside.     You  may think that is an easy trick,  but just you try it some day when  somebody springs a big surprise on  you ; perhaps you won't find it  so  easy as it may   appear.      Olivier  knew all about your general Gatacre. Ho had studied him. He knew  him to be a very brave man, one" of  those soldiers who always  likes to  see their enemy in front  of them,  and grapple with him, Olivier would  say, "Gatacre is a man-who, would  charge ab the head of five hundred  men into the ranks of ten thousand  if he  were ordered to do it, and  rather relish the job."    The way to  worry a man like that is to pick  a  position amongst a lot of kopjes, _o  situated    that   you   can    always  be    threatening ' him.      And    do  you    know    that     when   Olivier  fixed ou Stormberg as his fighting  ground ho picked a piece .of country built by nature for him.  When  he had thoroughly examined the  country   he   picked    bin    fighting  force from  men who knew every  blade of grass in it; then he set to  work to  find out how many men  and guns   Gatacre  had.   I'm   not  going   to tell  you how that was  -done, but it was done, and done so  thoroughly that Olivier knew to a_  "fraction"the strength of the British  force.    Gatacre had nothing else to  do but choose the best position he  could  to attack, and he chose it  well.    Olivier started in to do a lot  of worrying, and Gatacre was very  willing to give him battle, but that  was not Olivier's programme.    Our  men cleared  every time "until the  "Tommies" got  the idea that the  I3ocr,i were scared to death of them.  That was just what our ''slim'1 general wanted them to think. There's  nothing   like    over-conlidence    to  bring soldiers to grief.   Then Olivier took up a position wifch only a  small force, and sent  the rest back  far enough to be out of eyesight of  British scouts or spies, but  yet nob  too far away in case of tt sudden  attack.  He knew your people would come  along and spy out his position aud  strength before attacking him in  force, and so they did; and Gatacre  acted upon that information ; but  as soon as the British moved on  that fatal dato for British arms  Olivier's reserves took up a fresh  position, and tho otheis just fell  back fast enough to keep Gatacre  on the move until his men were  weary. You may smile, but I don't  think a second Wellington would  have whipped Olivier in that country with the same means at his disposal. You laugh eh? Well, wait  a bit uutil you know more of  Olivier. He is a mixture of shrewdness. Ho is as stubborn as Cronje  and as subtle as Joubert, and as for  his personal bravery, why, you  havc not got a man in the  British army more plucky when  pluck is wanted. Just when Gatacre fancied lie never was going to  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Stroet  J. M. LAY. Manager.  get on to us we opened fire on him.  Then the British guns opened fire  on   our   position,   and   the   shells  howled and wailed in all directions.  Olivier had made certain that Gatacre   would   try and enfilade  his  position.   Had he tried to do so  that   day   your   Britishers  would  have lost every gun you had, and  every gunner, too, for that matter.  We beat you Britishers that day,  beat you pretty badly, too; but the-  meii who   think   Gatacre   isn't   a  general on that account don't know  the country, don't know   Olivier,  don't know the Boers, and  don't  know what quick firing rifles can do  in Jsuch circumstances.     If either  Kitchener or Roberts had been  in  Gatacre's place that day, we Boers  fancy it would not have made a  great deal "of difference.  ODDS  OF TWENTY TO  ONE.  Mr. Hales, the Australian correspondent for the Daily News in  South Africa, writes of the action  of twenty members of the Australian contingent, as related to him  in the hospital by a wounded Boer.  He says: ������������'..  "I will take the story from the  Boer's mouth and tell it to you, as  I hope to tell it round a hundred  campfires when the war' is over and  I go back to the' Australian bush  once more. 'It happened round  Colesberg way,' he said; 'we thought  we had the British beaten, and our  commandant gave the word to  press on and cut them to pieces.  Our big guns had been grandly  handled, and our rifle fire had told  it3 tale. We saw the British falling back from the kopjes they had  held, and we thought there was  nothing betweeii us and victory;  but there was, and we found it out  before we were many minutes  older.  '' 'There was one big kopje that  was the very key to the position.  Our spies had told us that this was  held by an Australian force.' We  looked at it very anxiously, for it"  was a hard position to take; but  even as we watched we' saw that  nearly all the Australians were  leaving it. They,1 too, were falling  back with the British troops.  '��� 'If we once got that kopje there  was nothing on earth could stop us.  We could pass on and sweep around  the retiring foe and wipe them off  the earth as a child wipes dirt from  its hands, and we laughed when we  saw that only about 20 Australians  had been left to guard the kopje.  '* 'There were" about 400 of us, all  picked men,- and when the commandant called ub to* go and take  the kopje we sprang up eagerly and  .dashed over some hills, meaning to  cross the gully and charge up the  kopje. Searely had we risen to our  feet than the Australians loosened  their rifles on us, and "not a shot  was wasted. They did not fire as  regular soldiers nearly always do,  volley after volley, straight in front  of them, but every man picked his  -man and-shot to kill.          "We dropped to cover and tried  to pick them off, but they were cool  aud watchful, throwing no chance  away. We tried to crawl from rock  to rock to hem them - in, but they,  holding their fire until our burghers moved, plugged us with lead.  "'Then once again "we tried to  rush the hill, and once again thoy  drove us back, though our guns  were playing on the heights they  held. We could not face their fire.  They did not play wild music, they  only shot as we never saw men  shoot before.  . " ' Then we got ready to sweep  tho hill with guns, but our commandant, admiring those brave  few, sent an officer to them to ask  them to surrender, promising them  all the honors of war. But they sent  word to come and take them if we  could. Then an officer asked them  three times if they would hold up  their hands, and at the ..third time  a sergeant saicl^ 4Aye, we will hold  up our hands, but when we do, by  God, you'll find a bayonet in 'em.'  And there they stayed, though Ave  shelled them and tried to rush  them under the cover of the artillery fire. Then, when all of their  men were safe, they jumped into  their saddles and made off, carrying their wounded with them.  Thoy were but twenty men, and  we 400.'"

Bogart, an organizer  of the American Federation of  Labor. His reasons in favor of the  use of the label were:  Because it supercedes the strike,  the lockout and the destructive  boycott; it is the outward manifestation of harmony between employer and workman, binding both  parties to maintain their friendly  relations and the continued approval and patronage of a discriminating public.  It condemns child labor and  humanizes factory life.  It minimizes convict competition  with free and honest labor.  It wipes out tenement and sweat  shop systems of production.  It has ferreted out, exposed and  cleansed the unwholesome cellar  bakery.  It shortens the work day and  gives the toiler time to read and  think and cultivate the social side  of life. '        '    |  It guarantees a living wage and  rational conditions of employment.  It stands for quality and honest  Avorkmanship.  It is not a weapon for industrial  war but an olive branch held out to  bind the brotherhood of man.

Washington-, June 11.���3ra.jor-  general Otis, accompanied by his  aides, captain Slayden and lieutenant Stanley, reported at tho war  department today. lie was met at  the station by adjutant-general  Corbin and general Schwan, and  the party was driven to the Arlington hotel. After breakfasting,  general Otis repaired to the war department, where he formally reported to 31r. 3[eikcl,iohn as acting  secretary. Thence general Corbin  escorted him aud his aides to the  White house. The president was in  his private oflice in close consultation with senator Allison, senator  Cttllom and justice Ilailan when the  party arrived.   k  General Otis and general Corbin  were immediately ushered into the  presidential library, where 3Ir. 31c-  Kinley met general Otis with the  utmost cordiality, congratulating  him upon his apparent good health  and thanking him several times for  his signal services to the country.  General Otis made no report to  the president in detail. After a  few minutes the president invited  geneial Otis into his office and presented him to senators Allison and  Cullom and justice Harlan, and for  half an hour general Ofcis remained  talking over the situation in the  Philippines.  The president and his visitors  were intensely interested in what  the general had to say and in his  opinion of the existing situation in  the archipelago.  After general Otis left the white  house ho was naturally reticent  concerning the subject of his interview with the president, but he  did not hesitate to reiterate his  statement, made repeatedly since  landing at San Francisco, that  the Filipino rebellion, as an  organization, was dead. When  his attention was called to  the views of Judge Taft, president  of the Filipino commission, printed  this morning, he expressed the  opinion thafc they were satisfactory.  The United States would be compelled to maintain in the Philippines for a considerable period as  large an army as was there at present.  "The army," said he, "will be  needed as a measure of repression  until the robbers and guerrillas are  'stamped out. The maintenance of  this'large force is necessary, owing  fco the Vast extent of territory  which must be covered. -We  have established ourselves in &e-  gros, Cebu, Samar and many of the  other islands, in nddition to Luzon,  and are today actually exercising  effective authority over more terri-  BPSIKESS   MENTION.

Tire recent capture of general Pilar  del Rio, he thought, had been  effected with the consent of that  general. So far as Aguinaldo himself was concerned, general Otis was  not inclined to credit the report of  his death. In his opinion, it mattered  little, however, whether Aguinaldo  was dead or alive, as his influence  had been completely destroyed.  "Aguinaldo," he said, "is probably in hiding somewhere in the  mountains of northern Luzon, but  he carries little more influence  than any other individual at large.  He is discredited and a dead issue."  Asked as to whether, in the event  of more acute complications in  China, troops could be spared from  the Philippines for service there,  general Otis replied: "Possibly,  possibly."
