PRICE FIVE GENTS  LACROSSE REASON OPENED  Notes on Athletics.  The iirst lacrosse match, of the  season took place on tlio recreation  grounds last night and created considerable interest. The game was  lively and fairly well played while  the light was good. Tho game was  witnessed by about 300 spectators.  The Citizens' band turned out to  help the boys along and took up a,  position on the hill behind the  grand stand from where they played  a brief program in splendid style.  About 7:45 o'clock the players lined  *up as follows :  U  1>UP''*NCE TEAM.  HO.MK TKAM.  Km-nuto   .. .....

Jeffs refereed the  game and  took advantage of his  position  on  the field to address fatherly advice  to several of   the   junior   players.  The match lasted for three-quarters  of   an" hour  without a  break aud  victory   finally   rested    with    the  home team.   The game showed beyond tho shadow of a  doubt  that  this year again Nelson will  have a  first-class     lacrosse     team.       Joe  Thompson was in  good  shape  and  played a fine game game.   Joe has  uot developed body checking to any  extent, but barring this lie  is  probably as good a lacrosse man as auy  man   in.   the   province.    Dan   McNicholl; Dave Rutherford,  Barney  Archibald, Charles Jeffs and Arthur  Perrier played their old time game,  >and   could   be   depended   on   at  every   point.    Jack  Fox and Jack  Vanstone   wore   among  the   new  men aud played a fast game.     Fox  manifested a disposition to hold the  ball   too long and  Vanstone was  js.yatie   iu  his  passing,   but  both  faults can be remedied  with care  and both men are almost sure of  positions on tho first team/    Dick  McFarlaiie was one of the players  who   started out1 with the intermediate team and has beeu  practicing steadily,"until lie is slated as  a promising player. Teddy Whifctit  was pronounced by referee Jeff's to  be ono of the neatest stickhaudlers  on the field.   With moro experience  lie will probably be one of the best  lacrosse men in the city.   All  the  players wotked hard, and the game  wiil go far to convince citizens that  the team is in the field for keeps.  out at 7:30 each morning, and the  others row at intervals during the  day until the evening. It is too  early to attempt to pick a winner,  but so far C. B. Winter's crew seems  to have the advantage at present,  especially in point of condition.  With the other crews all settling  down to hard work, however, the  problem becomes more interesting,  and there are sure to be some exciting races. As the club only has  two lours, the first heat will be  rowed on Saturday,0 leaving four  crews to compete on Monday.  The fire department's racing team  had a.run on Baker street last night.  All the members were out and the  going was heavy so that the time  was not remarkably fast.  Jim Chambers received a telegram  from the secretary of the Canadian  Amateur Athletic Association stat-.  ing that Chambers could not participate in. the amateur sports here  on Domiuion Day. The conditions  necessary to secure reinstatement  are that a list of all events in which  the applicant has participated for  cash prizes must be furnished together with several letters of recommendation. Such elaborate precautions may be necessary, but  everyone will regret that red .tape  should stop Mr. Chambers taking  part in any of the sports on Dominion Day. ;;  Every lacrosse player is wanted  tit the fireball tonight at 8 o'clock  whan the club meets to go into the  matter of the Greenwood trip and  other matters of importance.'  had a   useful  Whilothe la-  progress, 'the  tiie    pigskin  The ��� football club  , practice last night,  crosse game was in  i'ootbaliists kicked  about on the grass plot at the east  end of the grounds, and then took  possession of the field when tho ia-  erosse men had to stop on account  of darkness. More than enough  players were present to make two  full teams, and a lively game ensued.  The club is rapidly rounding  into good shape, aud if the members manifest the same degree of  interest in the practices between  now and the date of the Kaslo  game they have a first-class chance  of winning out despite the fact that  Kaslo has all the advantage iu respect to opportunities for developing team play. Tho management  is considering the question of ordering a handsome silver trophy i'or  tho match with Kaslo, It is proposed to put tho cup up for competition to be played i'or three  limes.  Those who intend going down to  Spokane to see the baseball game  there are reminded that the team  goes down on tomorrow morning's  train, wliich leaves the mountain  station at 10:15. Those who are  going are requested to take their  tickets at the down town office of  the railway company and not on  the train, aa the price of the tickets depends on the number of the  supporters of the team who go  flown to Spokane, and those purchased on the train will not be  counted. Tickets ean ba secured  through manager Waterman if applications be made in sufficient  Time.  Great interest is being taken in  the regatta during the Dominion  Day celebration especially in the  scratch fours. Eight crews have  entered for this event and are prac- J  ticing regularly.     One crew goes  Kumassi on Half Rations.  **\  Cape Coast Castle, June 19.���  The garrison at Kumassi is still on  half rations. Sir Frederick Hodgson, governor of the Gold Coast  Colony, and his wife, who are besieged there, are well. The Ashanti  ammunition is giving out. Three  hundred natives were killed in the  fight between the rebels and the  West African frontiersmen under  captain Wilson on June 10th.  SEYMOUR IS NOW AT PEKIN  Much Hard Fighting.  London, June 20.���A news agency  despatch from Shanghai, dated today says: "After a march of frequent fighting with the Chinese,  vice-admiral Seymour arrived at  Pekin on Sunday afternoon, On  five occasions the Chinese attacked  the column in great numbers. There  were many mounted men among  the Chinese. Most of the natives  were badly armed, but at times  they fought with   grand   courage.  the losses of the Chinese during the  march aie estimated at five hundred killed. '_._.  "The loss of foreigners was trifling.  The exact state of affairs in Pekin  it is impossible to describe, in view  of the many conflicting reports,  nothing having been received from  the legations or foreigners there..-  Snrprise is expressed: at- the fact  that a large force of Indian troops  has not been rushed hem"  No fiirther selection of cabinet  ministers has yet been made.

HARMLESS  AN   ATTACK   ANSWERED.  AMERICANS TOOK NO PART  Communications Still Cut.  Washington, June 20.���The message from consul Fojvler and commander Taussig at- Chefoo came to  the officials here as a surprise, for  yesterday's advices were that  Chefoo also had been cut off from  direct communication by wire with  the cable terminus at Shanghai.  The naval authorities calculate  that the Yorktown started on Monday from Taku carrying a  copy of the department's instructions to admiral Kempff, which it  i is now believed never reached him  in the original. If this supposition  ifa correct; the admiral refrained  from taking part in the bombardment of the Taku forts because of  lack of instructions from his government, for the officials here say  these instructions would have empowered him to unite with the  other foreign naval commander if  necessary.  The naval officers take comfort  from tho report of the~Freirch~con;r  sul in Shan Tung, transmitted by  consul Fowler, to the effect that  the missionaries at Tsang Chow  were carried off alive by the  Chinese general. Hope is entertained that the missionaries were  carried off to ensure their protection, an evidence that the Chinese  troops at that point are not acting  with the Boxers.  Owing to the vague character of  the French consul's report, however, it may be said that the above  inference is somewhat strained. It  is said at the state department that  the whole effort Of the government  at this juncture is devoted to the  re-e.stablibhment of communication  with admiral Kempff and minister  (Jonger. This was the burden of  the talk at the White House conference this morning, and the action  of the United States consul at  Chefoo in promptly chartering a  vessel to push the government's  message as far as possible ban in a  large part solved the problem. The  Phoenix can reach Taku whore admiral Kempff lies aboard the Newark aud can' probably get up the  river to Tien Tsin, where the United States ships Nashville and  Monocaey undoubtedly have arrived hy now. The. Solace, which  embarked a full battalion of marines from Cavite about five days  ago, is understood to have arrived  at Chefoo on her way fo Taku. It  is not possible for the Solace to ascend the Pei Ho river above Taku,  so that if the marines are to be  landed at Tien Tsin, their original  destination��thoy must be tranship-  j ped in small boats.  : Editor.of The Tribune: ��� I  hope you "will give, me a few lines  of space in which" to protest against  the agitation which the Nelson  ,vMiner-is endeavoringto.e&'eate over  the very trivial difficiiit^Iwhich exists between the cityi'e^npil.ahd a  few men employed-on the^ i?oc1cipiIe  on Victoria street. i-iWith fche^de-  mand made>by the men I.willv not  deal, aa^toore than to say that' ft  is of such a nature as should be, disposed-of by any body of business  men in a few moments, and without any in terviews or scare edito-.  rials in the press. -It is plain to any  business man that the publication  of such silly stories and nonsense as  appeared in the Miner- this morning can have but bne'"effect', and  that is to damage Nelson's reputation on the outside, and impair the  trade of the local merchants.  The publishers of the Miner, however, have seen fit to cast a   slur  upon myself. _They not only .question my standing' as *T'contractor,  but they further insinuate that I  attempted,'with others, .to put up  .a game   upon   the council.* That  when     I    agreed ^  to     pay   the  scale   .demanded  - by   the    rock-  men  from   the    city,  I    had   no  prospect   of eniploying   any   such  men, and that in, any event I knew  no more about taking out rock than  Joe Downs.   This shows that ignorance and vindietiveness still continue to be the controlling forces of  the Nelson Miner.   It is not often  that   private business men in any  community are "called upon to defend   themselves   from   any   such  uncomplimentary  statements.     It  could only occur in places where  questionable   papers   such   as  the  Nelson  Miner are imblished.   The  company   with  which   I am   connected is the largest firm of employing contractors "in the city.   Last  season we operated tltree quarries  in our building operations, and paid  out for labor in so-doing $11,000,  during the whole of which time we  paid for skilled labor the same wage  which   this   season   we agreed to  maintain in conjunction with other  contractors.   When   I   signed  the  agreement this year I intended to  keep   it,   and   unless   the Miner's  campaign of slander prevents building operations this season, the scale  which skilled labor is endeavoring  to secure from the city will be paid  in our quarries.

Vancouver, June 20,���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Nearly all the politicians have left town for their  the Victoria delegation going by  premier Dunsmuir's special steamer  at 2 o'clock this morning. Ex-  premier Martin is out with a very  sarcastic interview in which he  says, when referring to the convention, that, of course, there is no law  against politicians making asses of  themselves.  ������ And they say," adds Martin  with an attempt at derisiveness,  " they are going to have a short  session, that they will bring in no  contentious legislation. They may  say that, but that does not stop my  part in contentious legislation. We  will make the government define  their position on all important  questions during this sho��*fc session,  and will treat them just as if they  were a party and not a coalition  arrangement."  o View . of ..Mclnnes.

"  London, June 21.���4:20 a. m.���  The British have penetrated Transvaal territory as far as Machadorp.  Passengers wno arrived yesterday  at Lorenzo Marquez from the  Transvaal assert that heavy artillery was engaged aiid that the  Boers abandoned Machadorp, retiring northward.  President Kruger is still at Alka-  niaar. Boer bulletins regarding  general Dewet's. operations along  lord Roberts' communications assert that two convoys were captured and three hundred workmen  with fifty military taken prisoners.  It is reported from Lorenzo Marquez; that a resident of Komatipoort  has been arrested and shot by the  Boers for complicity: in the break  down of the Malana bridge.  President Kruger's unstamped  sovereigns have been offered for  sale in Lorenzo Marquez at twenty  shillings. ,  A member of the British house  of commons, who had an important  connection with South Africa, is  tellings story of a telegram alleged:  to have beenr: received from Gape  The Tribune.]���The political crisis  has about come to a head, and  there seems no reasonable doubt  that lieutenant-governor Mclnnes  will be dismissed. Today private  telegrams from Ottawa stated that  he had been asked to resign-by the  federal government on the grounds  of general dissatisfaction, and it  was understood that sir Henry Joly  _of Quebeejwould succeed him._ .Tonight the governor's secretary  stated that Mclnnes had refused to  resign for, as he put it in his  telegram to Ottawa, lie would not  recognize the right of a convention  to advise the Liberal government at  Ottawa how to act. This, of'course,  refers to the resolution passed by  the great majority of the members  of the legislation asking the dismissal of Mclnues. As federal  politics have been barred out of  provincial issues this will bring  things to a head, for' leading Liberals are as strong against Mclnnes  as are the Conservatives.  While returning members are inclined not to talk yefc, it it, learned  that in view of the strenuous opposition of some of the Mainland  members, Turner agrees to dropout  of tho cabinet after the first session,  and it is generally understood that  he will be given the post of agent-  general of the province at London.  Garden of Vancouver says lie will  not accept a place in' the cabinet,  and it is understood that this refusal is because he. fears he might  not be re-elected if he went before  his constituency again, as must all  members when they accept cabinet  offices.  Dunsmuir is assured of general  support and the latest report is  that McBride of Dewdney will be  taken into the eabinet as commissioner of lands aud works, and  Green of Jiaslo will be made minister of xnines in place of Smith of  Lillooet to appeaso dissentients at  the caucus. One thing seems certain, and that is thafc Mclnnes will  be forced oufc of the gubernatorial  J chair in short order now.

Advices   from    Pretoria,    dated������;  June 17,say that an official warning  has been issued to the effect -that  any further wrecking of communi-  ��� eatiS'ns   will   be   followed   by the  ��� demolition   of  the farms for five!  miles on both sides.        ;  The Pretoria correspondent of the  Daily Telegraph, in a dispatch  dated Sunday, says : " An informal  truce for five days is in operation  between lord Roberts and commandant general Botha."  ALL SHIPPING^ IS STOPPED  Yang Tse Kiang Quiet.  Shanghai, June 20.���The Pekin  news'wired today emanated from  the Chinese telegraph. Merchant  steamers are not allowed ��to proceed to Tien Tsin, and vessels on  their way have returned to Chefoo.  Correspondence with -Tien Tsin is  difficult. The Chiness** Merchants'  Company has ceased sending vessels  northward.  Ifc is learned authentically that an  understanding exists between Great  Britain and the^viceroys of Nankin  and Wu Chang, which accounts for  the quietness in the Yang Tse  Kiang valley. Ic is reported that  the Chu' Sn is -executing .large  bodies of suspects daily.  The British armored cruiser Undaunted arrived afc Woo Sung yesterday, and cleared for action while  passing the forts as a precautionary  measure.

The effect of the bombardment  of the Taku forts, as described by  the Shanghai correspondents was  gory in the extreme. Nothing less  than "rivers of blood,", and "mutilated corpses piled up inside the  forts."  The Russians guarding Tien Tsin,  according to another report, fired  from- artillery and rifles on June  loth at a range of fifty yards into  dense crowds of attacking Boxers,  and killed 300. ���-:  Japan, according to a despatch to  the Daily Mail from Yokohama, intends to laud an expedition at Foo  Chow.     .���'���.'���.���.���.      ���' .'

Washington, June 20.���There is  every assurance that general McArthur executed his instructions as.  promptly as possible, and fchafc fche  delay in the departure of troops is  due to the conditions that could  not have, been anticipated. An  evidence of the total unprepared-  ness of the foreigu colony in Pekin  for the Boxer uprising is afforded  by a report to the state department  from minister Conger in which he  wrote from Pekin on April 8th that  he had succeeded in obtaining permission from the Tsung Li Yamen  to admit free of duty the goods to  be placed on exhibition iu the  American warehouse* in** Shanghai  to be established by the National  Association of- Manufacturers.

London, June 21.-3:50 a.m.��� The  reports of admiral Seymour's arrival at Pekin and of the safety of  the foreigu legations, originating  from Chinese sources, and cabled to  this city from Shanghai are still  unverified. However, the Italian  consul at Shanghai has wired to the  Italian foreign minister, marquis  Visconti Veno.sta, that tho legations  are safe.  Tho rebellion is spreading far and  wide. There is an impression in  diplomatic circles here and on the  continent that the allies have not  yet grappled with the situation  effectively, and thafc even 50,000  troops would be powerless to, do  do much to control four million  square miles.

No more cabinefc appointments will be announced until  the new governor is sworn in.  AMERICANS HAD NO SHARE  Admiral Kempff s Dispatch.  . Washington, June 20.���Owing to  the disinclination of acting secretary Hackett to take the responsibility on his shoulders .of making  public   any   portion   of    admiral  Kempff's dispatch, it was not until  late in the afternoon and after the  president had given his approval  that the rather meagre statement;  of the admiral's communication was  given oufc.    Ifc was fchen found  to  contain little that is new. Persistent  inojuiry developed0the fact that the  date of the cablegram was Chefoo,  June ..20th."'.:   The  admiral's statement that heavy firing was heard at  Tien Tsin on the evening" of  June  17th, possibly is the basis for the  report current in Europe   that Pekin; was attacked that day by the  foreign column, though it seems incredible fchafc the sound of such ai*r  tillery. as could have been carried  by admiral Seymour's column could  have been heard seventy-five miles,  the distance from Pekin to Tien  Tsin. '     .*  It is possible the admiral means?  that he, himself, at Taku t heard  heavy firing- in progress -at Tien  Tsin, 30. miles distant. Though,  with an open river above him" to  that point and gunboats capable of.  navigating the channel lying at*  Tien Tsin, it would seem -that he  should have been able, in that case,  to have ascertained what the firing  meant in the two days that elapsed  between the 17 th and the date of  his despatch.  Naval officers generally bitterly  regret that admiral Kempff was not  in the fight at Taku. Up to the  receipt of his dispatch this afternoon they had continued to hope,  even in the face of foreign reports  to the contrary, that the American  naval force had taken some" part in  repelling the attack of the Chinese  forts. But the admiral's statement  that they were, captured by the'  "other fdfeign'*forces dismissed fchat  hope.  , The prevailing idea among naval  officers is thafc "the reduction of  these forts was necessary to the '  safe progress of an international  relief expedition to Pekin, and that  admiral Kempff should have found  it fco be within his duty in the protection of all American interests, to  have borne his part in the burden.  Much depends, however, on the  exact terms of his instructions, and  in fact ifc is not yet known whether  he actually received all of his instructions or not.  The administration is said  to be  very  much   embarrassed   by the  length of   time which  necessarily  will elapse before the United States  military reinforcements reach China.  When generalMacArthiuyit Manila,  received instructions to send a regiment of, infantry of Taku with all  possible dispatch, it was impossible    -  for him to comply immediately be-  _eause of raging  storms. JHad the_.  order for  the  troops  been  issued  when the  troubles afc Pekin  were  found to be  inevitable,  it  is more   -  than likely that the  troops from  tjie Philippines would have started  before fche prevailing typhoon made  such   a step  impossible, and now'  would be on CliiuobO soil,  i  The Axe Has Fallen.  Victoria. June 20���[Special to  the Tribune.]-The axe fell today  when lieutenant-governor Mclnnes  was dismissed from office by the  Ottawa government, and as stated  sir Henri Joly has been appointed  in his stead. Joly has given up his  position in the Dominion cabinet to  accept tho post, and as he is afc  Ottawa it' will take a short; time,  before he can get to Victoria to take  up his duties. In the meantime  premier Dunsmuir cannot appoint  the remaining members of his  cabinet, so a lull is bound to ensue  till Joly arrives. Mclnnes feels  "very sore, but ho declines to talk  for publication though he says that  ho will give a statement to the  press in a few days. Joly cannot  be officially appointed until Mclnnes  receives his dismissal by mail and  acknowledges ifc. There was great  joy here today when Mclnnes' dismissal was announced.

The cause for the Miner's hysterics  is found in the fact that there exists at present a difference between  the corporation of the city of Nelson and some nine rockmen, as to  whether they shall work nine hours  per day for $3.25, or eight hours for  the same wage.    These   nine meu  are classed as skilled.laborers, and  are paid at the" rate of 30 1-9 cents  perjr hour, so that the granting of  tlieir request   would mean   3G 1-9  cents per man; or an additional cost  to city all  told of $.'3.25 per day.  The demand for the eight hours has  been made for the purpose of preserving uniform conditions for such  labor.'  The city has   simply been  asked to pay the   sarae   scale   of  wages as is paid by private contractors.'   It is open for. the members of  the present -city   council  to   say  whether they will  treat their co-  shareholders iu -the municipality as  liberally  .as  - private   contractors  treat _them:_ Ti��i   Tribune-   takes  the same position on the labor question now as it did before the lecent  election.    It believes in trades un-  *>  ions and in standard-wages. It not  only believes that the demand of  the rockmen is reasonable, bufc ifc  also believes that the city of Nelson  could pay the $11,25 per diem involved without straining its credit  or restricting its programme for  street improvements. .The Nelson  Miner should takeadvanfcage of the  ptesunt opportunity fco give effect  to'its doctrine of peace and prosperity. It should cease to piay fche  part of the calumniator, and allow  fche members of the city council to  decide the weighty question of the  $3.2') increase in the cost of street  work.  the Nelson Miner's policy is calculated to do more mischief than any  demand whicli the labor organizations of the city have made or are  likely to make. Outside^ readers  who are not familiar with" the  Miner's rule or ruin policy may take  alarm at the Miner's statements  that building operations in Nelson  are afc a standstill; that the loan  companies are refusing business  right and left; that the bankers are  openly expressing their distrust of  the situation; and that financial  ruin is' in sight.. Jn&l how fche  Miner hopes fco "promote the commercial aud industrial welfare of  Nelson by the publication of such  nonsense", the business men of Nelson  are afc a loss to understand.

"While on  a visit to London before the commencement of the war he dined at  the house of a very wealthy lady of  title, and later, when he was discussing the affair with lii-s secretary,  the latter a-skt-d : "And whom did  ,you take to dinner?" (*Oh. I don't  know. Some Lady Somebody," was  the reply. "But what did you call  her?" "Didn't call her anything���  never t>poke to her."  Not long ago the New York state  newspaper men gave a banquet in  Slauwix hall in Alb'iny, and among  the guests of honor were ex-governor David B. Jliil and governor  Theodore Roosevelt. The latter  entered the hall iirst, wearing an  evening suit and his famous brown  sombrero, made famous by the  Rough Riders, it was a combination costume at onco original and,  picturesque. Among the lasfc of  the guests to arrive was Mr. Hill,  who was conventionally attired,  evi-n to his silk l*au. "Ah!" ex*-  claimed Colonel Roosevelt, in his  peculiar staccato manner, a*- he  grasped Mr. Hill's hand, "now we  have wifch up a real Albany bwell.
