PRICE FIVE CENTS  _K  THE KAISER DECLARES WAR  Germany Must Be Avengsd.  Bkrun, July .'5.���In addressing  the detachment of German marines  which sailed from Wilhelmshaven  .for China yesterday, the emperor  'made a remarkable speech during  which liu notified the"world of Germany's iutention to avenge the  murder of the baron von Kettler,  tho late minister of Germany at  Pekin, and the missionaries, aud to  ti ic ate terms to the Chinese from  the palace at Pekin. The emperor  said:     '  '���The firebrand of war .lias been  hurled in the midst of the most  profound peace. Unhappily this  was to me.nob unexpected. A crime  of unspeakable insolence in its bar-  bat iby has been committed against  lhe person of iny own representative, and has taken him from us.  Tlio ministers of the other powers  hover between life and death, aud  wibh thein the comrades sent for  their protection. It may be that  while I speak they are fighting tlieir  last fight.

A in co/ called you to arms, what I  hoped to effect with the help of the  .marine infantry has now become a  .'difficult'task, which can only be  .fulfilled with the help of the ser-  rried ranks of all civili/.ed states.

"Sou will havc to face aii enemy  who are no less courageous than  yourselves and trained by clever  officers. The Chinese have learned  Oiie use of European weapons.

Mills said that when the  correspondence came down it would  be shown that in the light of English parliamentary practice Mclnnes'  conductwouldbe found indefensible.  He denied that Mclnnes had offered  to resign. He had offered to give  up his position for one he thought  more'important. The motion for  the papers passed.  Emperor Backed Up by Press.  BuitLiN, July 4.���The emperor's  address is commented upon enthusiastically by a 'majority of the  press. The Post says: "The speech  moves by its contents and fires by  its energy. Asa representative of  an enlightened modern nation as  well as of a people which does not  allow a blow to their national  pride to go unpunished, Kaiser  Wilhelm dwelled very . strongly  nob only upon German, but  also upon general interests. The  Pekin deed of horror to him, is an  awful crime against civilization itself." The Tageblatt dwells  strongly upon the emperor's use of  the word "war," and says the kaiser  meant thereby not formal war, but  a campaign of .redress. The paper  declares that it is highly advisable  thab the reichstag should hold an.  extra session, whicli would show  that the emperor has, in all measures which he deemed necessary, a  united nation behind him.

Will Test Mclnnes' Assertions.  Ottawa, July '.i.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���In the senate today petitions we're presented asking that  the senate do not reject the Chinese  restriction immigration bill. Bowell j  ��� moved for all papers and correspondence in connection with the  dismissal of lieuteuaut-governor  "Mclunes. He did nob do so fo.'tLe  purpose of championing the lieutenant-governor. He referred at  ���length to how Mclnnes spoke of  having letters from the government, written by the secretary of  estate, asking him to pursue a certain course, and that afterwards he  ���(Mclnnes) was asked to burn them.  iSnott said he would bring down the  returns. As an old personal friend lie  had written Mclnnes personal letters  giving him his views of what should  be doift*. Now that these letteis  Avere referred^ to, he had no objection to bringing them down. Ib  Svas very improper to have referred  to these letters, but he Avould now  ask Mclnnes to have any restrictions  to bring them down, removed. If  Jlis advice to Mclnnes had been fol-  As Seen in Shanghai.  London, .luly 4���4:55 a. m.���The  Shanghai correspondent of the  Times, telegraphing on Monday,  says: "The edict issued at Pekin on  June 2(5th amounts to an open challenge to the powers, and practically  declares war. It commands the  provinces to enroll the Boxers and  troops to assist to expel the foreigners." A special dispatch from  Shanghai, dated July 2nd, says that  tho Tao Tai of Shanghai has notified the Chinese newspapers that,  beginning with July 5th, no notice  Avill be taken of decrees of the so-  called imperial government, as  prince Tuan had seized the power  on that. day. "��  Situation in Tien Tsiii Desperate'.' "  Chefoo, July 3.���It is reported  that all foreigners haA'e been or-  deredjout of Tien Tsin. The situation is considered desperate. The  Chinese are pushing their entrenchments under the walls. The railway betAveen Tien Tsin and Lu Tai  is in the hands of the Chinese.  TROOPS MASS AT HEILBRON  Peed, Starving Boers.  London, July 3.���The following  dispatch has been received at the  war office from lord Roberts:  "Pretoria, July 3.--General  Hunter's division has crossed the  Vaal and should be at Frankfort  today,'where he will be joined by  colouel Macdouald's.Jbrigade^fronr  Heilbron. ���  "General Buller's leading brigade  has left Standerton for Graylings.  "Both here and jat Johannesburg  several families of the men who  have been fighting against us are  being fed. Some are iu a state of  destitution.  "At Heilbron, where the food  supplies ran out, groceries, meat  and other supplies, of food are being  distributed among the inhabitants  under the supervision of the relief  committee. Arrangements are being made for the distribution of  oats for seed purposes for farmers  actually in need of it, and those  who are unable to jn'ocure seed oats  in any other manner."  London, July 3.���The following  dispatch Avas received this afternoon at the war office from lord  Roberts:  "Pretoria, July 3.���General  Hunter reached Frankfort on July  1st Avithout opposition and MacDonald joined him there yesterday.  He found two men of the Seaforths  and eighteen of the Derby militia  iu the hospital. They had been  well treated by the Boers.  "Methuen reports from Paardes  Kraal, on the Heilbron-Kroonstad  road, that he has captured the  commander of Dewet's scouts, tavo  other prisoners and Andies Wessels, the head of the Afrikaudo  band."  The war office has received the  following dispatch from general  Buller:  "Standerton, July 3.���Clery occupied Greylingstak yesterday  without opposition, but met with a  good deal of sniping. There were  four or five casualties."  The Second Day.  The second day of the big celebration Avas eA'en greater than the  first, and the Nelson athletes covered themsoh'es Avith glory, Avinning the hub-and-hub, wet test,  baseball game aud the association  football match. The baseball game  attracted over a thousand spectators and Avas undoubtedly the best  exhibition of ball ever seen in the  country. The celebration Avas fittingly closed by a magnificent  AA'ater carnival, a display to which  our beautiful lake peculiarly lends  itself. Though a little marred by  a slight shower early in the eAre-  mng the procession of lighted boats  OA'er the dark water was a beautiful sight, while the pyrotechnic displays and bonfires across the lake  with the searchlights of the big  steamers all added to the effect. ���  :   The sports in detail folloAV:  The races and Caledonian games  on Baker street yesterday afternoon  Avere witnessed by several thousand  spectators who thronged the course  from Stanley to Hall streets.  The greatest interest naturally  centered about the hose reel races,  in which the Nelson team distinguished itself as usual, capturing  both events in splendid style.  The hub-and-hub race came first  Nelson being drawn against Greenwood. The home boys won the  heat in 17�� seconds. Later they defeated Grand Forks somewhat  easily.. The time was not taken iu  the second heat.  The wet test also fell to Nelson's  share. The Greenwood team ran  first and made the race in 27 2-5  seconds." This was regarded as a  splendid performance, and it. was  felt that Nelson had a big contract  on hand to win out. The enthusiasm  of the Nelsonites can be imagined  Avhen ib Avas announced that the  home team had made the 'test in  25_3:5 seconds.. Grand Forks followed but played in ^hard luck..  Their leader had been* hurt in**the  bicycle race and Avater Avas turned  into the hose before the nozzle was  coupled, thus ruining their chances.  The Nelson men offered Grand Forks  a chance to run again for first  money, but the offer was declined  with thanks. Then it Avas decided  to give Grand Forks $50 for competing.

Silverton put up  a superb defense, their backs tackling Avell, and kicking strongly and  accurately. Dill did some excellent  Avork for Nelson as \ back.

The latter had carried  everything before them on Slocan  Lake, and were confident of victory. Nelscn, however, won by  one goal to nothing, which was  scored towards the end of the first  half after some very pretty play.  Ciaugh brought the ball down the  left Aving and centered beautifully,  Thompson passed out again to Martin, who put it cleverly betAveen  the posts with a swift Ioav shot.  The Nelson forwards kept the ball  in the Silverton territory most of  The closing scene in the celebration was the water fete last night,  and this feature proved to be one  of the most successful and interesting events of the entire two days'  programme. The fete mights have  been greatly improA'ed upon, but  the blame for such drawbacks as  there were rests wholly Avith the  authorities who control the weather  bureau. About 8:30 o'clock a  shower of rain fell;. which soaked  many of the lanterns used iu decorating the craft, thereby destroying  the symmetry of the exhibits in  many instances and delaying the  entire proceedings for an hour at  least., This Avas -;fbllowed by a  strong wind, which prevented the  craft from lining up in a procession  as was intended, and which would  have added considerably to the  effect. ���  Despite,these handicaps the carnival was a rare treat from a spectacular point of view, and fully  justified the celebration committee  in announcing it as one of tlieir  premier attractions. The Avater  front was covered with boats of  every description,. from a Siwash  canoe to the C. P. R. steamers. The  intermediate classes included skiffs,  rowboats, sailing craft,, steam  launches and tugs,, not to mention  the barges crowded with spectators  and. towed.by tugs.  .    .  "When the; Aveather-'cleared and  the boats Avere enabled to get into  a semblance of order the ensemble  was charming indeed. The general  decoration scheme AA'as in Chinese  lanterns and thousands of them  Avere used on the hundred odd boats  on the water. Some of the designs  were A'ery original.  The C. P. R. boats- Avere loaded  Avith passengers and their busy  searchlights Avere flashed about  from point to point throughout the  evening. The tug Hercules took a  C. P. R. barge out well filled  AA'ith  spectators who desired to witness |- second and retired the side.  the pageant from the Avaterside,  The tug Procter was employed for  the band and judges. The Ontario  Powder Company's tug, the Red  Star, ., took out a handsomely decorated and illuminated barge, arranged by the members of * the  JEoung=X,anadiaiwClub=for=them-i  selves and a large party of guests.  The launches Flirt, Vedette, Mischief, Donna, Maple Leaf, Pretoria  and Hale's gasoline launch Avere all  in line and carrying decorations.  Cleopatra's needle was a .mina-  ture of the famous obelisk, lighted  up from within and surrounded  by Chinese lanterns. It Aviis  mounted on a small barge Avhich  the wind blew up the lake before it  could be got into line. When the  tug sent to the rescue brought tin-  Needle back into order, a number  of the lights had burned out so that  many spectators missed this feature.  On the far side of- the lake a hosb  of lanterns Avere displayed against  tho side of the mountain, among  the designs being a large star and a  crescent. The McArthur & Co. pile  driver was gaily lighted up and  brilliant magnesium lights Avere  burned from the top of the 40-foot  upright with splendid effect.  The judges were R. F. Green,  M. P. P., of Kaslo, and C. Mackintosh, junior, of Rossland. The  prize for the best decorated'launch  AA'ent to the Flirt, the decorations  ou which were designed by Mrs. J.  W. Troup.

They were awarded the prize for  the best music. In sailboats the  honors Avere carried off by W. J.  Astley's Bobs, which Avas handsomely decorated to the top of her  mast and yards. Mrs. W. A. Macdonald won the prize for" the best  decorated rowboat in close competition Avith half a dozen other  craft of similar size. The prize for  canoes was awarded to C. B. Winter.  NELSON WINS A FAST CAME  First Class Ball Played.  Yesterday the Nelson ball team  Aviped out Monday's defeat.   It was  an excellent game of ball and Avas  Avitnessed by fully   one thousand  spectators.      The   feature   of   the  game was the pitching of Kelly,  who Avas formerly with the Stanford University team.    He put up  the best specimen of ball that has  been   seen   iu   Nelson, Avhich Avas  made effective by  the  magnificent  support AA'hich the local team gave  him.   Three hits were charged up  against him, but two of them Avere  of the doubtful A-ariety Avhich with  proper handling the'Nelson fielders  should haA'e secured. .Waters went  behind tiie bat for Nelson, and, considering the fact that he had never  caught Kelly  before  made a very  good showing.    He had tAvo passed  balls, Avhich advanced. Davy from  first to third, and "eventually, enabled him to score, but aside from  this he put up a faultless game.  Olsen, Avho Avent into the box for  the visitors, put up a very strong  game. The locals, Avho had knocked  him out of the box in Spokane,  thought they Avere going to have a  soft thing, but in this they Avere  disappointed. The Rossland man  caused no less than nine of the  locals to strike out, and all told  they secured but five hits off  him. He received . good support,  and saving a fumble by Fay in the  eighth innings, none of .the three  errors made by the visitors Avere  costly.  The local team Avent in to bat.  Houston the first man up was presented Avith a base, and it looked as  if Nelson AA*ould go on the score  cards. Partridge, however, forced  Houston out at second, and Waters  with a sharp grounder enabled  Gibson to make a double play by  retiring him aud catching Partridge  between the bags.  . In the . second innings Rockenfield got as far as third, but failed  to score. With Kelly gone, Olseu  sent Rockenfield to first; - He made  a neat steal on Shea and travelled  to third on Herrou's sacrifice, but  Mills with a fly to Olsen shut out  possibilities. In the next innings  Nelson did not reach first.  Partridge opened the fourth Avith  a two-base hit to center, and  Waters, the second man up, got  first by being hit by Olsen. Kelly  followed Waters, Avith a pop fiy to  Olseu, Avhich AA'as gathered in, and  Rockenfield contributed a strike  out. Herron then sen b a grounder  to Vaughn, who cut Waters off at  Gibson Fay and McDonald   went  out in succession.  Rossland did not reach first iu  the third, aud in their fourth, Russell, who got there on a charity,  was the only Rosslander to reach  Partridge. In the fifth inningAvith  tAvo men gone Olsen got in a tw.o-  base hit, but Erbe Avent out on a  pop fly to Kelly.  Rossland's solitary run Avas made  iri the sixth.   Dovey drew a charity, traveled to second on a passed  balI,-gotto third  on another and  travelled home on Waters'  throAv  to Partridge to shut Vaughn out  at first, after he had fannedtheair.  Shea    then     sent    a     long     fly  right, ���*  which     Herron���. . should  have secured but which was charged  against. Kelly as a hit.   Russell was  hit by Kelly and given abase, after  which   Gibson   sacrificed   and advanced both men. Fay then retired  the side with a short hit to. Eacritt.  In Rossland's seventh McDonald  sent  a grounder to Houston and  was thrown out atiirsfc   Olsen repeated the performance with the  same result.   Erbe then sent a very  difficult fly above second, which was  cleverly secured byEacritt.  The eight was unlucky for Rossland. Davey opened Avith a long  fly hit to left.Avhich looked safe, bub  Worth got under it, 'and made a  grand stand catch. Vaughn got in  a safe hit to left. Shea then Avent  out a fly to Houston. Russell got  his base on an error by Eacritt, but  Gibson going out from Kelly to  Partridge retired the side.  McDonald Avas the only man to  reach first in Rossland's half of the  ninth. -After Fay was thrown out  by Eacritt, McDonald was given a  base by Kelly and stole second.  Fitch, who was substituted for  Olsen, went out on a fly to Houston  and Erbe completed the. game by  striking out.  The score is appended :  NELSON. - A.tt.

Kelly aud Rockenfield were  in" turn presented Avith a base  aud advanced on Herron's sacrifice.

'  IS A NEW DRILLING RECORD  Feat by Boss and MeLeod.  The drilling contest on the vacant  lots east of the Queen's hotel  was  the first important event on yesterday's program and it proved to be  one     of     the     most    interesting  of   the   entire   celebration.     Five  teams drilled and one of these mado  a record which is said to be the best  by half an inch.    The contest was  witnessed by a couple of thousand  spectators    who     croAvded   every,  available vantage point. The Slocan  Star and the Greenwood teams won .  the money.  The officials in charge of the event  were   Bruce   White   and   E.    R.'  Woakes, judges, Jacob Dover and  Harry'Howson, tiihekeepers.   The  stone   used   was   a fine   block  of  coarse grained granite Avithout a  trace of iron and six feet long  by :  two feet square, set upright.   The  day was only moderately Avarm and",  the conditions favorable   to good4'  drilling.    ,  The teams Avhich had complied  with all/the conditions required to~J  compete for the Robertson .trophy -  and purse Avere draAvn to drill  as  folloAVS:       -'���'.. . - -  Granite mine^-Welch and McN< il.

Teams   AA'ere   also present from  Rossland and Greemvood, but the  judges refused to permit them  to *  compete on the ground  that they  had not met with the requirements  in forwarding their entries.    W. J_.  Galliher , came forward,   howev<-r,  and announced that the city would  give a purse of $100 for the deepest  hole drilled regardless of the  com- "  petitors'  qualifications.     The   two  crews in question then lined up as* -  follows :  Greemvood���Ross and MeLeod.  Rossland ��� Stevenson and Dm- '*  ham.  The contest Avas not" started on'  time, but at 11 o'clock the Granite  men-started  Avork.     It was their   -  first competition and they seemed  rather    nervous    but    both   mnn /  proved    to    be     clever     drilleis  and   good  stayers.     McNeil got a  bad smash on the hand before  the  steel   was    set,  and   although   he  stayed pluckily with the game  the  team  Avas  practically   out  of the   -  running, although they beat  Ymir  by a long lead.  The Slocan Star men, who have  Avon several prizes in similar contests, then took the platform. Their  performance Avas splendid. The  drilling Avas clean and the men  finished strong.  IN THE BRITISH LEGATION  =====^*===Are^Under-Eifie~Pirer     ~���  Tientsin, June 29���via Chefoo,  July 1st, and Shanghai, July 3rd.���  A courier from sir Robert Hart, inspector-general of customs at Pekin,  lias just arrived.

IMPERIAL   PRIVY   COUNCIL.  A. little more than two hundred  years  ago  a London   topographer  described   Downing   street   as   "a  pretty, open place, especially at the  upper end,  where are four,or live  large, well-built; houses fit for persons of honor and   quality,   each  house  haviuga  pleasant prospect  into St. .James' Park with a tarras  walk."    Sir George Downing, secretary  to the  treasury,  iu ISttl,. Aubrey de Vere, the last earl of Oxford, sir Robert and lady Walpole,  the  elegant Horace  Walpole,  and  others  of honor and quality have  lived  in the street and walked on  the "tarras," but the old houses and  their inhabitants are gone, and the.  short,  gloomy  street  between the  treasury and the foreign office cannot  now be  considered a "pretty,  open jilace."    Itjis, in fact, a business street,  and,   like   other such  streets, is not a very desirable place  for residence.    To be sure, it is the  =business=of'a"gi,eat"empire=Avliiclr=is"  there  conducted, and  so the  very  name  of the" street has   become a  proverb    aud   a   household- word,  smacking  at   once  of   all that   is  o' Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  at the fire.    No one has ever suggested  that tlieir  judgements  are  | nny the worse because their coat-  tails are warm.   Possibly, they are  Tietter.    But,' taken i'ii conjunction  with  the  meanness  of  the courtroom, the informality of the judges  tends to impair the dignity of the  tribuual.      A much   more   serious  evil  arises   from   the   long   delay  which often' elapses between   the  Shearing of a case and the delivering  ; of a judgment.   If it should happen  that during this..interval one of the*  three judges  who  heard, the case  dies, the whole proceedings must be  a*e-commenced, and the parties must  bear the extra.expenditure.  These "facts will readily explain  the desire of Australian lawyers to  set up an appeal court of their own,  which shall take part of the work  now done' by the privy council.  The same desire was expressed" by  Canadian lawyers when a federal  constitution was established in Canada, but fortunately. the power'of  the privy'council, was maintained,  and its judgments have since been  of the greatest value in. interpreting the Canadian constitution.  Even more value is attached by Indian litigants to the jurisdiction of  the privy council' as a means of  correcting the possible errors of the"  presidency courts. In a recent  pamphlet Mr. Haldane tells an ex-  formal and official. -'���>'.  On the right hand side out of  * Whitehall is a brass-plated door,  b-aring the inscription "Privy  Council Office," and if the curious  visitor, having previously obtained  the sanction of Mr. Preston, F.S.A.,  mounts the lead-covered stairs, he  will find himself in a room on the  first floor, in which some of the  most important business of the  greatest empire on earth is carried  on, And such a room! A plain,  staid, common-place room with a  half library, half court of justice  sort of look, and absolutely nothing  about it which suggests Imperialism ; nothing, in fact, but substantial bookcases, solid chairs of the  common domestic pattern, and a  solid table covered with greon bai/.e.  This-is the privy council chamber,  the sanctum sanctorum, the ultimate court where the sovereign of  the empire listens (by deputy) to  the plaints and suggestions of her  subjects from all over the world.  The sovereign is represented by  several judges, members, of course,  of the privy council. Among them  is the lord chancellor himself, the  loid chief justice, the lord justice of  Ireland, the president of the pro-  b ite and divorce court, and the five  lords of appeal who hold life peerages for judicial work in the house  of lords.  The procedure of the court is as  i n formal  as  its  housiug  is dingy, i  The judges wear no robes, and they  relieve the monotony of a prolonged  sitting by warming their coat-tails j  ^ESTSXJRANT  OPEN PAY AND NIGHT,  [���'���Oor.

LAY, Manager.  cellent story of a remote hill tribe  who were discovered by the district  officer making sacrifices to a new  god. "He is a very powerful god,"  they said, "for he has given us back  the land the government wanted to  take from ns. He' lives over the  sea, and his name is "Privy Council."  The proposal, to transfer the work  of the, judicial committee of the  privy council to the house oflords,  and so create a single imperial  court of appeal, is not, however,  one that, can be carried out offhand. Mr. Montague Crackan-  thorpe, writing to the. Times not  long ago, pointed out some of the  difficulties, and at the same time,  took up the cudgels in defence of  the present habitat of the privy  council, which someone had described as a "shabby room up a  dirty stair-case, off Downing street,"  while some one else with even  greater irreverence, had actually  described the august court itself as  "the' dowdy court of Downing  street." Mr. Crackanthrope does  not agree with such talk, and considers the chamber admirably  adapted for its purpose, the accommodation for solicitors and law  agents being excellent. A more  pleasant tribunal to practice before,  he thinks, could not be imagined.  The lord sits, minus his |robes, as a  simpleLEngljsh gentleman without  thereby losing a particle of his dignity, and there are no full-bottomed  wigs. Mr. Crackanthrope points  out too, that one of the salient  features of the privy council is that  there is only one judgement delivered, the opinions of the dissenting  minority, if any, being suppressed,  and so,' as lord Selborne said, the  moral weight of the council is much  increased. When it speaks it speaks  on undivided authority.   Whereas,  DR. ALEX FORIN  Okkick:  Houston Block.  Alex Stewart  Room 3, Turner & Boeeh Block.  NELSON.  Mines  Real.

In  the event of an imperial court of  appeal being formed it would have  to decide on one or other of the two  methods���unity, or multiplicity of  utterance. If the many-voiced system of the house of lords is to prevail, it is possible that the colonies  and dependencies and the native  Indians, whose causes are constantly  before the privy council, will lose  some of their confidence in the  judges. It is a tinie of change and  readjustment. Before long perhaps  even such an ancient institution as  the judicial committee of the privy  council will have.ceased, to exist���  merged in the house of lords���and  its room, with its green baize table  and chairs and book cases may be  either swept away altogether or  may become a mere lumber room.  ^  ~B  '_\_\-^^__\''^__^'^_W''^__.''^^'^__.'^^%^^'^^%^^,'^^   ��3'C^�����? ��C^3*C?*��?*C? *C^*C? ."<��3*C?  *^?-''  8^  &  FRATERNAL   SOCIETIES.
