She brings reports from Sydney to  show that the plague situation in  that city is improving. The daily  average has decreased to less than  two cases a day. Melbourne7*, which  had been thought to be about free  from the disease, had a new case on  the 4 th of the month. The  total number of cases at Sydney up to June Oth, was 272,'  of which 96 had been fatal. During  the week previous to the departure  of the steamer there were 17 new  eases admitted to the hospital, the  deaths for the same period numbering three, which is the lowest,.-rate  since March. There.were 86 patients  in the-hospital t when.; the*8teamet;  lefti which is much' less than- the'  recent average. '  ��� "  "Duringthe past three weeks the  authorities have been offering to  inoculate people with serum, but  tho Sydney people do not take to it  as those of Honolulu did. In the  whole population, only about 7,000  persons applied for treatment.  During May 19,448 rats were  killed in Sydney, making a_ total of  24,15S rats killed since April 13.  The cleaning up of the big Australian metropolis still continues.  Twelve hundred scavengers were at  work under government auspices.  A Japanese newspaper announces  that Dr. Kitasato, the discoverer of  the bacillus of bubonic plague, has  invented a new preventive serum.  America May Stand Aloof.  AVashington, June 28.���Relative  to the injej^sjiug���s_tor.yJhj^anjn^  ternational accord had been arrived  at as to the pro-tempore settlement  of the Chinese troubles, state department officials say that while  the United States might acquiesce  to such an agreement if the European powers and Japan have come  to an understanding on the basis  set out, the result should be welcomed by all who have no selfish  designs to satisfy. But it is not  possible to predict what the official  attitude of the United States to  such a combination will be.  A Portentous Resolution.  Ottawa, June 28.���[Special to  The Titmone.]���In the house, today  Bell moved a resolution which took  the speaker hours to read, setting  forth that Ogilvie's investigation  into Yukon affairs was not sufficient and that a judicial enquiry  should be held. The debate was  carried on all day and evening.  Situation in Colombia Graver.

London, June 30.���3 a.m.���The  adventures   of  the   hard fighting  allies under admiral Seymour; their  reaching  Anting,   12   miles   from  Pekin; the direction to retreat; the  capture of rice and immense stores  of modern arms and ammunition,  affording material for a strenuous  defense until relieved���all this is  told   in   a dispatch from admiral  Seymour, received-by the admiralty  at midnight, which runs as follows:  "Tien Tsin, June 27, via Chefoo,  Juue 29.���1:05 p.m.���Have returned  to Tien Tsin with the forces, having  been unable to reach Pekin by rail.  "On June 13 th two attacks on  the advance guard were made' by  the Boxers who were repulsed with  considerable loss to them, and none-  on our side.     On June 14 th the  Boxers attacked the train at Lang  Yang iu large numbers and with  great determination.    AVe repulsed  them with a loss about  100 killed.  Our loss was seven Italians.   The  same afternoon the Boxers attacked  the British guard left to protect  Lofa station.   Reinforcements were  sent   back   and   the enemy, were  driven off' with a hundre'd killed.  Two of our seamen were wounded.  "We pushed forward to Anting,  and .engaged the enemy on June  13th and June 14th inflicting a loss  of 175.   There were no casualties  on our side.   Extensive destruction  of the railroads in our front having  made further advance by rail impossible, I decided on June 16th to  return to Yang Tsun, where it was  proposed to organize an advance by  the river to Pekin.  _   "After my departure from Lang  Yang two trains left to follow on  were   attacked   pn\ June 18th by  Boxers and Imperial ^.troops from  Pekin, who lost'from-400 to 500  killed.     Our   casualties, were. six'  killed   and   48    wounded.     These  trains joined me at'Yang .Tsun the  same evening.  "The railway at Yang ;Tsun was  found '.to 'be eritirely^r.demblished  and the trains could riot be moved.'  The force being short of provisions  and hampered with wounded, compelled us-to withdraw on Tien Tsin  with which we had not been in communication for six days and our  supplies had been cut off.  "On June 19th the wounded, with  necessaries, started by boat, the  forces marching alongside the river.  Opposition was experienced during  the whole course of the river from  nearly every village, the Boxers  when defeated iu one village retiring to the next and skilfully retarding our advance by occupying well  selected positions, from which they  had to be forced often at the point  of the bayonet, and in face of a  galling fire, difficult to locate.  "On June 23 we made a night  march, arriving at daybreak opposite the imperial armory, above  jrien==Tsin,=whei,e,=aftei*=friendly=  advances, a treacherous heavy fire  was opened while our men were exposed on opposite side of the river.  The enemy was kept .in check by  rifle fire in front, while their position was turned by a party of  marines and seamen under major  Johnson, who rushed and occupied  one of the salient points, seizing the  guns. The Germans lower down  silenced two guns and then crossed  the river and captured them. The  armory was next occupied by the  combined force. Determined attempts to retake the armory were  made on the following day unsuccessfully.  "We ' found immense stores of  guns, arms and ammunition of the  latest pattern. Several guns were  mounted in our defense and shelled  the Chinese lower down. Having  found ammunition and rice we  could have held put for some days,  but being hampered, with large  numbers of. wounded, I sent to Tien  Tsin for a relieving force which arrived on the morning of the 25 th.  The armory was evacuated and the  forces arrived at Tien Tsin on June  26th.    We burned the armory!"

'  Seattle, June 27.���The gold received at the United States assay  office since July 1st, 1900, amounts  in value to over $1,000,000. From  information now at hand it is possible to make the certain prediction  that the receipts of the office during the month of July will amount  to over $3,000,000. The receipts for  June were today increased by the  deposits brought down on the  steamer Rosalie, which arrived  from Skagway   Tuesday evening.  will confer' a favorNby communicating with-the1 officials of the Silver-  ton or Nelson Miners', unions.

The syndicate of Nelson men who  took up the jjlacer stretches on the  North Thompson river and Jamieson creek have at last succeeded in  making a turn. The ground hus  been turped over to some Liverpool  men who will put in a $50,000  dredger. The terms of the deal  call for a $20,000 payment the bulk  of which is cash. The first installment of the purchase price is expeeted in Nelson within the next  few days. Among those who are in  on the deal are R. S. Lennie, A Fur-  land and H. R. Bellamy. They will  make a good cleanup.  Results of School Examinations.  The central school closed for the  summer yesterday afternoon with  the usual closing exercises.'

GRUEL WORK IN PRETORIA  Kruger Afraid to Move.  London, June 29".���Outside of  minor conflicts in the Orange River  Colony, showing continued Boer  activity in the. Senekal district, the  telegrams from South Africa merely  indicate preparations for, it is  hoped, the final operations of the  tediously prolonged war.  A Capetown dispatch reports an  attempt by the Boers to blow up  the artillery barracks and magazine  at Pretoria. It is added that an  artilleryman, who frustrated the  attempt by withdrawing a lighted  fuse, was killed by a Boer whom  the soldiers afterwards attempted  to lynch.  The British authorities are deporting large numbers of Holland:  ers to Holland to be dealt with by  their owh/government, for. not ob-  seryirig;tHe-state of 'neutrality de-'  clared oy^the'Netherlands. .  -, president Steyn-is reported .to be^  at-Bethlehem consulting with general De*vet.  Sir Alfred Milner, the British  high commissioner,' has notified the  government to pay-the-interest on  the Free State six per cent loan due  July 7th on condition that there is  no liability for further interest.  Capetown reports that president  Kruger is still at Machadorp, afraid  to move for fear the bridges are  undermined.  St. Joseph's Schools.  St. Joseph's schools, which were  opened by the sisters a few months  ago, bid fair to hold their popularity  in  Nelson  on  account  of the  substantial    knowledge    which   is  there   imparted   and -''the  evident  progress made by  the children  already admitted.     The institute is  now affiliated to the University of  jCambridge=and=pupils=desiring-to-  graduate through that  college  are  prepared for examinations held annually iu December.    Applications  for entrance to these examinations  should be made to the sisters early  in September so as to allow them  ample time to communicate with  the secretary in   London.      It is  hoped   the new building   will   be  complete when the children  return  after the summer holidays and the  sisters will then be able to accommodate   a large  number of girls.  Accommodation is also made for a  limited number of little boys up to  the age of ten so as to convenience  parents living out of the city.   The  new schools  will  rest on a stonework foundation with wood frame,  85  by  53  feet, and  a tower three  stories high.    The plans aro in  the  hands of architect Curtis, through  whom   a   complete description   of  the  building    will  be  given later.  The schools are under the direct  management   of   the   sisters   who  have had wide experience in educating and training children and  hold certificates from   the education department, London.  A Mine Reported Sold.  It is reported that the Monashee,  a good mine over in Yale district  that was discovered over twenty  years ago, has been sold for $25,000  cash. The ore is free-milling gold,  and although the miue has not been  developed to any great extent, it is  said to be a promising property. In  the early days its owner, a Mr. Mclntyre, made a deal by which he  managed to erect a small mill at the  mine ,* but because of the out-of-the-  way location of the property and  other causes, the mill was not  successfully worked.  ROWING RACES BECIN TODAY  Dominion Day Sports.  The first of the Dominion Day  celebration sporting   events takes ���  place this afternoon when the two  first heats of the scratch four-oared  race will be pulled off. ��The first  race   starts   at 3:30 p.m. between  AVinter's and Hislop's crews, which -  are made up as follows:   Winter,''  stroke; Hickling 3;   Beaven 2, and  Curtis, bow,  aud  Hislop,   stroke;  Percy, 3;   Clark  2;   and  Farwell;*  bow.   The second heat is between  Ford's and A. F. Proctor's crews, '  and will be    rowed   immediately  afterwards.    Ford's crew consists  of Ford,  stroke;   McCrae  3, Wet--.  more, 2; aud Harvey, bow.     Proc-*'  tor's crew is still a mystery.   He - >  has announced that he will bring ,  down a crew of C. P. R. men, but"  no one has the least idea as to who  they are.  On Monday .Beer's rifle crew will '  row the winner of the first heat ���  this afternoon, and the Hudson's^  Bay crew the winner of the second'^. =  heat.   The   finals   will * be   rowed-" -  later on the same afternoon.  There    has    been    considerable'  speculation on the i-esult and pools ;,,  have been freely sold in the Office"' j- ���  saloon, and more will  be sold this '���'_������  evening on the result of the .semir *  .final   and final heats on Monday.'*\  So far Winter's* crew is a slight :\  favorite in the betting, with Ford's . .  crew pressing them hard for first,''"  place, and it is probable that those ���  two crews will compete in the finals ,  on   Monday.    Proctor's   C.   P.

So much has been said concerning  the Natal Act, by. the Conservative  press, that one would almost be led  to believe that ��� it was some reform  which the Conservative party" had  been endeavoring, for spme time, to  wrest from  an  unwilling government.    Much  as  the  Conservative  politicians might desire, to create  this impression   they will   hardly  succeed.   It is not so many years  ago since the Conservatives had it  in their power to apply such re-  strictions.upon Chinese immigration  as , they- thought best.    The   best  they would do was the imposition  of a tax of $50 per head.    This the  Laurier    government    has    since  doubled.   Neither of the political  parties'are entitled to, much credit  for the manner in which they have  dealt with   the  Chinese question,  but upon the face of their performances, it must be conceded that the  Liberals have clone just twice as  much as. the Conservatives to keep ���  the Chinese out. " The' Natal Act is  one of the reforms which has yet to  be:won ; and w.hen it does:go upon  the statute; book the.,province; will  not owe its existence to either of  the great political parties.  Phismier- Maooonat-d's prohibition'measure is now before the law  amendments committee of the Manitoba '.legislatu re; and those, who,: are  opposed. :to any and .'all kinds of  prohibition are now engaged in  shooting amendments into it.. During the. first session some forty-nine  amendments were made, each with  a. view to restricting the prohibitive features of the measure and  the work was-nob then half completed. As the bill stands . now  oflicers of churches may secure an  unlimited supply of wine for sacramental purposes, but until- some  further amendment is made, every  member of the congregation who  partook, of the -wine in the church  would be liable to arrest.  difficult to secure auy support for  measures looking to the exclusion  or restriction of Chinese immigration. British Columbians will  find it difficult to believe. that a  member of the house of commons  should compare the action of the  Laurier government, in- increasing  the Chinese head tax to $100, Avith  the policy of Mr. Kruger of the  Transvaal or the heads of- the  Boxer organizations in China. Yet  this thing happened. Mr. Edwards  of Russell took this position, and  there were many who supported  him. Mr. Edwards' idea was that  being a free trader he should, to be  consistent, be a free trader in  Chinese as well as everything else.  The anti-Chinese movement has to  overcome more forms of objection  than almost any other class of  legislation. It has to meet political,  commercial and even religious op-  position> and from meu who consider the issue only in-the abstract.  ��� Thomas It. MoInnks is treading  oh dangerous ground when he justifies his action iu dismissing. the  Seinlin government, by the circumstance that no members of that government will appear in the next  legislature to condemn him. Since  Thomas himself has been relieved  from office, Charlie Semlin's statesmen can pay their respects to Mclnnes as well out of the house as  in it."

AVell,  every���ono���of-^the���members-elect-  could not be given a portfolio, and  the three members from the great  district of Yale like the four members from the great district of AVest.

"  in "Memory of'cronje! -':'"
Private Cecil. 31 eKew/Ac,  of  the-
first   contingent   of  Royal   Cana-.
diana, in-writing from South Africa
to Mr. S.. T.  Bastodo,  deputy commissioner of fisheries,  sends, with;-
his letter a number  of interesting,
ctii'te-itics iu   the  way ,of jackets/
hats, buckles and buttons, says the
Toronto Star.    Tho  most valuable"
is   an   Orange Free State buckle;:
whicli is now valued at £3- 10s.
The most-interesting/however, is
a funeral notice in memory of the.
departure   of    Cronje.        On - the
iirst    page    of', the"    black-edged
card     are -  the    words ■• ."In : Me-.,
nioiiain."      On ' the   second   page,-
" Tho' taken away from a world of strife.
He leaves a Sleyn behind him." •      --.
On page -three-is the sa'cl.~ announcement: "In remembrance of
Cronje, who succumbed ":to-< an .attack of Bobs on Majuba'day, February 27, 1900," with a "small quotation, "Not lost, but gone before-n.

On page four is this verse:.   .......
" No more will Cronje roam the veldt, ■
In oxilo ho dolli yearn; *
For justice unto him is dealt,
As many more will learn."
How Helena Won.
"Let   me    tell    you    something
funny about the capital of Mon-
' una," says Victor Smith,'   "In 1892
V.Iig   competition    rested '■between
Helena, Anaconda, Butte City,
Bozeman, Great Falls, Deer Lodge
and Boulder, without a decision.
In 1891 it was reduced- to a.
match between Helena and Anaconda. Marcus Daly was for Anaconda. W:. A. Clark was for Helena.
Anaconda seemed to havc thebest of
ib, when. Clark's genius, prevailed.
Ht* made no attempt at bribery.
He just said to every voter he could
lay hands on: "'If you want a
dead cinch, I'll give it to you. Go
and bet $5,000 at even money or
any odds you please that Helena
will be the capital. If you lose, I'll
make good the $5000. If you win,
you return, my $5000 and keep the
winnings." Needless to say Helena
was chosen. And the arrangement
did not cost Clark a cent."
. Advantages of the Royalty.
There are more ways of making
money off a Klondike claim than
working it.' Astory is told of a miner
who had a claim in Dawson that did
not turn out as profitable as was
expected. Not to be baffled, he devised a scheme for making money
out of it.,. He went to the gold com-
Mnissioner and announced that he
wished to, pay his 10 per cent royalty on the product of bis claim for a
year, which he said was $00,000. The

the number of the claim, location,
etc. One day an Englishman came
along looking for a good thing for
for some people who had money to
spend. He asked Mr. Blank, among
others, what-he had to "sell. Mr.
Blank told him he didn't' know
exactly but he would show
him his goods. Then, iu a casual
way, *' Mi*. • Blank "showed. the
Englishman'his receipt for royalty
on., claim* so-and-so. ,- "And, you
know,'.' he said with a wiiik, "a
man isn't paying royalty on more
than he can possibly help." The
Englishman, thinking he had a good

over the' claim ,in a general way,
and ended by buying it for $150,-
000.' So at least the „tale runs,
