Throo legations, it is not stated which,  were si ill undestroycd ou June 23. The American consul here stated  that Yung Lu telegraphed on Juue 20 that the other ministers were  safe that morning, but that the situation was desperate and he  doubted whether tlio ministers could hold out longer, as lie and the  empress could no longer give protection.  Rom n:, July 1.���The commander" of the cruiser Elba telegraphs  from Taku, Juue 30, as follows :  " Advices from the German legation in Pekiu state that all the  legations have been burned except those of England, France and  Germany. AIL of the members of the diplomatic corps have taken  refuge in the British legation."  Shanghai, July L.���The German minister in Pekin, baron von  Kettler, was attacked while proceeding to the tsung li yamen, where  lie died.  Washington, July 1.���Two important cablegrams were received  by secretary Hay from United States consul Goodnow at Shanghai.  Tiie date is understood to be that of last night. Tho text is withheld, but the consul states in substance tis follows :  " It is rumored iu Shanghai that the German minister to Pekin,  baron von Kettler, was killed in Pekin ou the 18th of- June. On the  23rd of June the chief legation buildings were still standing. The  others had been burned. On the 2(5th June a dispatch was. received  at Shanghai from Wung Lu (believed to be the viceroy of the province of Chile, where the principal troubles have occurred) stating  that the other ministers were safe. Dispatches to Shanghai from  different sources indicate that prince Tuau, father of the heir-  apparent, seems to be absolutely in control at Pekin, and that as to  his attitude to foreigners, -it is even said that he issued an edict as  far back as the 20th of June, ordering all of the viceroys to attack  the foreigners iu their respective provinces, an order which', so far,  has not bean obeyed."  ______3XXX_-X_Z--Z-X-_lXZ_____X_-_-XXXX_XX_XXXXZIXZX7 I  KELSON WON AT GREENWOOD  in Spirited Contests.  The members of the Nelson hose  team   arrived  home   from   Greenwood last evening.  They succeeded  in   winning   both    the    firemen's  events, received a good reception in  ' Greenwood, and consequently are  .  well  pleased with themselves  aud  -.the people of Greenwood also.  The Nelson boys went against  %he best men of Rossland, Grand  '.Forks and Greenwood on a new  track and carried off the honors.  The hub-and-hub race was run  iirst, but as the Grand Forks team  did not have a suitable reel they  were unable to compete. The race  was run with light reel-*, saving  that sufficient hose was carried to  even up the Aveights, the distance  being 150 yards with a grade in favor of the runners. Rossland got  considerably the best of the start,  I mt they were gradually overhauled  by the Nelson team. At the hun7  dred yards Greenwood and Rossland were running on even terms,  when one of the Greenwood men  became entangled in the harness  =and=we.ut=downrthus=puttiug-*,the^  Greenwood boys out of the contest.  Nelsou finished a good first in 16  seconds.  For the wet test an arrangement  was fixed up by which the reel in  starting released a flag, from which  the time-keepers took the start.  This device was good, but the Rossland men thought it would bo  easier to beat it than the Nelson  team, but being caught at it were  disqualified.  The Greenwood team went out  first.   They made a good run, but  missed the coupliug and failed. The  Nelson  team  ran second and got  water   in   29$ seconds.     Rossland  followed  Nelson.    The remarkable  feature of their heat was that the  team was well over the course before the timekeepers' flag dropped.  It was discovered that Smith of the;  . Rossland team, who was unable to  run, deliberately kept, the flag up  Thy standing on the rope which was  i,d��a-jjgned to release it.    The judges  vpnonaptly disqualified the Rossland  ���teaca, their action being generously  : applauded.   The Grand Forks team  .rau last.     They had an easy thing,  Vas they had only to secure water to  get second money.   This they did  vii 34 seconds.  ��� The 100-yard dash was won by  ; Smith of Rossland in 10�� seconds,  With Wilson second, aiid Douglas of  .Nelson third. The 220-yard race  was captured by Douglas in 24  seconds, with Mitchell of Greenwood  second.   Two Transports Sail.  San Francisco, July 1.���The  transports Leelanaw and Cbnne-  .amagh, with horses and , military  .supplies, have sailed for the Philip-  pines'via Nagasaki.  KASLO POLITICIANS DOWNED  By a Woman and Her Friends.  Kaslo, July 1.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���For the first time in the  history of Kaslo a woman has been  elected school trustee. Police magistrate Carney's time expired yesterday, and he was nominated for  re-election by R. F. Green, M. P. P.,  and mayor McAnn, but their in-'  fluence was not as great as that of  the George Kane, Archie Fletcher  combination, which "succeeded in  electing Mrs. * Livingstone at the  head of the poll. She received 123  against (52 cast for Carney and 53  for W. V. Papworth, one of the  proprietors of the Kasla hotel. It  has been suggested that G. O. Bu ���  chanau and E. F, Stephenson, the  other trustees,. should resign, so  that two more of the fair sex can  be elected and the ladies allowed to  run the school affairs entirely for  the next year ov so as an experiment.          MASSACRED BY WHOLESALE  Saturday stating that the German  minister had been murdered at  Pekin. Yu Lu, who escaped from  Tien Tsin to Pao Ying Fu, also  wires: ���-.       ,  "Situation desperate; implore  your help. Foreign troops of eight  nationalities entering Pekin to the  number of 30,000 or 40,000; cannot  hold out four days." ���?  Li Yun Yih received this from  the viceroy of Yuanshika: "Foreign troops victorious at Tien Tsin.  They Avill enter Pekin immediately."  Outbreaks of the Boxers appear  to be imminent at Canton. The  feeling of unrest steadily increases.  The Boxers from Ping Tu were  marching Sunday on Chefoo. - The  governor- of Yuanshika feared for  the town and sent to the war ships  for forces. ��� .���''"'���'  General Yuanshikana, commanding the best foreign drilled troops  in China, has notified the German  governor of Kiau Chau that he will  not permit the proposed German  expedition to Weisen to rescue  Chalfontant and the Misses Powden  and Hawes, the American missionaries in the hands of the Boxers.  The missionaries at Pao Y Tung  Fu were reported to be safe on  June 25th.  . A correspondent in Shanghai  learns from^official sources that the'  Chinese are laying torpedoes between Shanghai and-the Kiang Nan  arsenal. Agents of the Boxers are  busy in Shanghai provoking hatred  of the foreigners. Nothing has  been heard from the column which  relieved admiral Seymour, five days  ago, and then proceeded toward  Pekin, but as it takes at least, two  days to communicate'between Tien  Tsin and Chefoo, there is nothing  extraordinary in this.- Troops are  .going forward from Taku to Tien  Tsin daily.  A dispatch to the Daily Mail from'  Tong Fu, without date, via Chefoo,  Friday, says:  "It is. improper any longer to  conceal the harm done to the cause  of the allies by the barbarities and  -the pillage of the Russians on the  day after the bombardment. .They  not only shot * natives, but looted  everything,"including the European  house in Taku."  CELEBRATION SPORTS OPEN  Sketch of the Events.  Nelson's tenth annual Dominion  Day celebration opens today, and  bids fair to eclipse its niue successful predecessors. At the time of  writing the weather, looks like  clearing, and it., only requires fine  weather to make this year's celebration establish a new record. The  horse races, wliich have always been  a feature of previous years, have  been omitted from this year's pro;  gram, but the other, preparations  have been on a scale which will console the keenest horsenian'.  The; presence of the:.. Winnipeg  and Vancouver crews, will; give  great additional interest to 'the  regatta, ahd'opinion as to the result  differs considerably. V Both crews  are quite confident of winning and  are in excellent shape. Local critics  agree that the race will be a close  one, and. many think that the,  weather will decide it, favoring'  Vancouver-if the weather be rough,  and Winnipeg if-it be smooth. For  the local foiu^oared race C. B; Winter's crew, after their easy win on  Saturday, are strong favorites. The  competitors , in the other aquatic  events will not be known until the  races start,  After their victory at.Greenwood  the Nelson boys are strong favorites  for the firemen's races. Rossland  will not compete* after., all. They  went home '.'in disgust yesterday  after their beating at .Greemvood.  TheGreenwoodiire team was unable  to get here last night, so the- hub-  and-hub race will be .postponed until tomorrow, to enable - them to  compete. Only'one prize for- this  race has been given," but as��� three'  Situation in China.  London, July 2.���Official dispatches received by the, consular  body at Shanghai in an Express  cable, dated Shanghai, July.lst, con-,  firm the report of the butchery of  baron von Kettler, the German  minister, on June 18th. The ambassador was riding on the legation  street when he was attacked by  Chinese troops and Boxers, dragged  from his horse and killed. His body  was hacked to pieces with swords.  The German legation and six other  buildings were burned and a number of the servants of the legations  were killed and their bodies thrown  iuto the flames.  The consuls entertain little hope  that any foreigners are left alive in  the capital. There were 1800 foreigners connected with the legations, 50 in the customs house, En-  lish and American tourists and  others to the number of 150, and  nearly 500 legation guards, with  British and foreign officers.  The Daily Mail has received news  from the consul-general at Chefoo  that baron von Kettler has been  killed but no other information. A  dispatch to the Express from Nankin, June 30th, says:  "French priests here have received reports that the public execution of foreigners has been in  progress since June 20 th. The news  comes by runners from French  priests at Pekin, who state that  they administered the last rites to  the condemned men."  Nankin cables dated Sunday say  that viceroy Liu Yuin Yih received  a telegram froin general Yu Lu on  CONDUCT WAS MAGNIFICENT  Situation at Tien Tsin.  London, July 2.-4:45 a; in.���A:  dispatch from admiral Bruce to the  admiralty sent via Chefoo under  date of June 30, says: "The conduct of commander Stewart of the  Algerine and the commander of the  Taku forts was magnificent, and  elicited the admiration of the allied ships. The river route to Tien  Tsin, 51 miles from Taku, is now  open. The railroad head is now  nine miles from Tien Tsin. The  road inward is not quite safe and  communication to Tien Tsin is difficult���A fortJ.3,miIes above^Taku  was found destroyed and blown up,  leaving the passage up the river  free. >  Lieutenant commander Keyes reports that the arsenal at Tien Tsin  was captured oh June 29th by the  naval brigade. The losses were five  killed, lieutenant Colom slightly  wounded and a gunner and 21  wounded. There aro no further details.  Warrenden is in charge of all our  forces on the river and lines of  communication. Vice-admiral Alex-  ieff, governor general of 'Port  Arthur and' commander-in-chief .of  the Russian forces in the east," has  arrived on his way to Tien Tsin,  taking supreme command of the  Russian forcesjiaiided to date.     !

The people of each locality in the two Kootenays make claims  as to the importanceof their respective localities, and at times the  claims are misleading.

Today's  program   closes  with  a  (Continued on l'ugo Four.)  BOERS CET ACTIVE ACAIN  War Hospitals Scandal.  London, July 2.���General Botha  is showing increased activity. His  patiols cover wide stretches of  country, approach near the British  outposts and engage in skirmishes  while larger bodies threaten to attack, declining to allow themselves  to be caught by tho return blows  which the British seek to deliver.  Attacks of this sort were made on  Friday last at Pinaarsport on general Pole-Carew at Springs.  Generals' Botha and Dewet are  seemingly operating in combination.  Botha is reported to have divided  his forces into two parts, one" moving west and the other to the south  to try to-effect a" juncture with  Dewet. " .  Boer circulars are out exaggerating, the ..Chinese   troubles   and  '"urging-the burghers^ to- rejoin' the-  aririy.' '��� - *  Lord Roberts and several; cooperating columns are still out  within striking distance of Dewet:  Dr. Conan Doyle, in an interview  with him by the Daily Telegraph's  Pretoria correspondent, says the  hospital arrangements have been  severely tried, but that no more  could have been done.  Lord Roberts, in the course of an  interview, said he thought that the  charges brought against the government by Burdett-Coutts, conservative member of parliament  for Westminster, that inadequate  provision had been made for the  sick and wounded were probably  based upon one.hospital and a hasty  generalization thereon. .;.  ==Th^Times,"Preto"ria^correspon"d=  ents telegraphs that geueral Colville has been ordered home.  SECRET IMPERIAL DECREES  Officials Disregard Them.  London, July 2.���Two secret imperial decrees have fallen into the  hands of foreigners, according to a  special dispatch from Shanghai,  dated-Sunday, which says: "The  first, dated June 20th, recites events  arouud the capital and attributes  the trouble to religious fanaticism  against Christians leading to violent  outbreaks which the government is  unable to suppress. The foreign  troops are between Taku and Pekin  and foreign relations have reached  a desperate point. The government  therefore calls upon the viceroys  and governors to show their loyalty  to the throne and to raise armies  and funds in defence of Pekin. "'  "The second, which is dated June  21, eulogizes the Boxers as loyal  and true men who, though not soldiers, have defeated the foreigners  advancing on Pekin, and command  the officials to co-operate heartily  in the patriots' work. The southern officials  disregard the  decree."  A dispatch to the daily News  from Tokio, July 1st, says marquis  Yamagata, in the course of an interview regarding the Japanese expedition to China, said it was solely  for the rescue of the members of  the legations. He expressed the  opinion that the powers would become united in forming their demands.  BY DROWNINC OR BY FIRE  Over Two Hundred Dead.  Nkw York, July 1.���The fearful,  havoc to life' and property caused ,  by the conflagration  which broke"  out at the docks of the  North Ger-"  man' Lloyd'"' company in Hoboken  last night cannot be estimated with**  any degree of certainty.   The more  conservative people, who have had  experience' along the docks in the"  shipping interests, are of the opin- .  ion that   not   over   two hundred,,  lives were lost.    The officers of .the.  steamship. Saale   said   today that  there were fully two hundred visit-:  ors on board that vessel  when  the  fire broke out, the majority "of theni, i  being women.     , -     -~  -"     _  A boat was   lowered   from the '  Bremen shortly after the alarm h-id-  been given, but the craft capsized ���  as it touched the water",1 and all on ���  board were thrown into the wafer,,  and none of them were saved by '"  those remaining on the vessel. This  would indicate that the list of dead  may   be  larger :than*<it  was^-first';  thought to be.'  The warehouses of Palmer Cam p-- _  bell, wliich were . across  the  street -  from the North-German Lloyd line  docks suffered greatly and a numbm*  of   houses   along   the  street w; re  scorched   badly.     The  number  -��f  ,  smaller buildings along, the  wat-sr  front,    not   directly    under    c 'i- .  trol   of   the   steamship    compa*<.7,   .  cannot   be   learned   tonight,    but  it is said that there were a numl ���>;r  of express offices for smaller companies, one of these being repor* ��� d  to have lost over $10,000  worth   )f  horses and wagons.    The loss on t '��� ie  steamship property and other companies is estimated to be as follow s:  Steamer Main of North Germ >n  Lloyd Company, cost $1,500,C(*0,  "outsichrof the-cargor-fitting���b-^iI���t  stores. The loss is placed .it  $1,200,000 for the vessel, and abo.it  $400,000 for the fittings and stcos  and cargo that were aboard of Lit.  Steamer Bremen, of North Gor- -  man Lloyd Company, cost $1,1.10-  000, and her fittings and cargo w-re  valued at $300,000. The cargo ft ud  stores were entirely consumed r*nd  the loss to the vesssel proper i\ ill  reach at least $700,000. She is  beached off Weehawken tonight,  and still smouldering, apparently  destroyed, save her machinery.  The Saale steamship, which v. ill  have the most terrible history of  death to unfold when the divers ��o  down in her, cost the North German Lloyd Company $1,250,000,  and the fittings and cargo were  valued at $300,000. The Saale is  beached at Ellis Island and is still  burning. The damage done to the  vessel proper is placed at $800,000.  The damage done the Kaiser Wil-  helru   der Grosse is estimated at  $25,000.   Eussia's Pet Killed.

$15,000 to extend the electric light
system, $20,000 to extend the sewer
system, $20,000 for permanent street
improvements, and $0000 for the
purchase of a  road-making  plant;
or $70,000 in all.    The debenture indebtedness of the city is  $175,000,
and if the $76,000 is  endorsed,  the
debt will be $251,000.    This money
is   represented   by a   waterworks
system   that   is   earning $1200 a
month, an electric light system that
is earning $1800 a month, and a
sewerage   system   that   yields   a
revenue   approximating   $1500   a
year.     The   interest   and sinking
fund charges on the $251,000 will be
$22,500, and the cost  of operating
and maintaining the  water,  light
and sewer systems is in the neighborhood  of $10,000  a  year;   or a
total of $32,500 a year against a
present earning capacity of $37,500.

The ratepayers of Nelson will be
asked on the 18th to endorse the
issue of debentures to the amount
of $15,000, to be used in extending
the waterworks system of the city,
for the council this year very wisely
decided that" as the real estate
property of the city was mortgaged
to secure the payment of the principal and interest of the debenture
debt, the owners of real estate
should only be called ou to pay
taxes sufficient to meet the amounts
needed for interest and sinking
fund requirements. The rate of
taxation is less than one per cent
on the assessed value of the land
and half the assessed value of the
improvements. No othor city in
Canada can make a better showing.
Thb people of Nelsou who attended the Dominion Day celebration
at Greenwood speak highly of the
town and the people; they say that
they Avere well treated, and that
the sports were conducted on the
"square." There should be no'otli-
er kind of sports in any of the
towns in southern British Columbia, and there would not be if the
foolish practice of importing men
to   take   part   in   special athletic
events were stopped.	
. Rev. A. B. Winchester of Victoria, who has charge of the Chinese
I will be attached to the protest of
Mr.   Winchester.    The   movement
against the Chinese lias behind ib
men   who   are   painfully   earnest.
They believe they   are  making a
fight for their homes, and that the
Chinese must be kept out if British
Columbia   is   to remain a   white-
man's country.    Such men will not
be turned aside by sentimental talk
about   the    brotherhood   of   man.
They may be willing to contribute
to the cost of the evangelization of
the Chinese, but they will not consent to surrender British Columbia
as   a   field   for   evangelical   effort
among the Chinese.    That Mr. Winchester,  despite his  knowledge  of
the Chinese, is not a safe guide in
discussing   Chinese   restriction,   is
borne out  by his   defence of the
Chinese in their competition  with
white men in the labor market. Mr.
Winchester    assumes    that     this
charge should not be laid again the
Chinese because he knows, from his
own personal knowledge, that Chinese laborers would be willing to accept higher wages if they could get
them.    Ib  would be interesting to
learn,    whether   Mr.    Winchester
knows  of  any  race of men,  who
have sufficient intelligence to work,
and who would not prefer, according to   their   understanding,   the
larger  to  the  smaller reward for
tlieir labor.    The  Chinese question
is a labor  question chiefly, aud it
must be settled as  such.    It is because the Chinese will consent to
work for a lower wage than white
men can subsist upon, that the demand for their exclusion is made.
The white wage-earners of British
Columbia are more concerned with
what  the  Chinese  do,  than   with
what   they    would   prefer   doing.
-Their -presenco-is-a-menaco-to-the
health and prosperity of the people
of British Columbia, and in matters
of  this   kind   British   Columbians
may be counted upon  considering
British Columbians first.
The Rossland Record in commenting upon the sale of $25,000
worth of five per cent debentures
says that Rossland can
claim the honor of having the highest price on record for city paper.
If the Record means that Rossland's
credit is equal to that of Nelson, it
is -mistaken. Last year the city of
Nelson sold $70,000 worbh of five
per cent debentures at 107, which is
several poiuts higher than the price
paid for the Rossland debentures.
Another point worth mentioning is.
that the Nelson debentures run for
but 20 years as agaiust 25 years for
the Rossland issue, so that other
thiugs being equal the Rossland debentures should command the
higher price. *
Joseph Hunter of Cariboo has
gone to Victoria for the purpose of
looking over the political field before the legislature opens. Joseph
has made two statements to the
press. The one, was that a gravet
mistake had been made in the selection of Richard McBride as minister
of mines ;t the other was ...that he
himself intended to pursue a strictly independent course. There are
those who surmise that the premier's alleged mistake accounts for
Joseph's independent plan of action.

Thompson of Alabama in  addressing the American Industrial  Commission made a sweeping assault on labor unions. He says that  they weaken the ties of citizenship,  create disregard for the rights of  others, destroy respect for law and  authority, educate the laboring  classes against tho employing  classes, demanding class legislation,  attacking ��� the right of individual  contract between employers and  employees. Such .'complaints are  common, .and uo one would deny  that labor unions have been occasionally unjust or unreasonable,  One sometimes hears the employer  say, "I want to be just, and I would  willingly give my workmen' better  than union terms, but I do not want  outsiders interfering between us."  The labor unions, however, were  not called into existence by employers of this kind, but by those who  =s.'iid-.-^I-have -tlie-rightto- -biiy^my-  labor in the cheapest market, and  to discharge a man who is earning  $2 a day if I can get another for  $1.50." The labor union, insisting  upon a fixed rate of wages, is the  logical answer to that contention.  ] f��we had employers and employees  whose ideal was justice to one  another there would be no need of  unions.

There exists in Chicago an excellent organization among school boys,  known as the Cook County Anti-  Cigarette League, the laudable aim  of which is expressed in its name.  It is related in the Medical Record  that the league had a field day on  June; 15th, and one of the events  was a '50-yards' dash. Just before  the start a newsboy with a cigarette stump in his mouth came along  aud asked to be allowed to run.  The superintendent of the games,  who thought this was a good chance  for a telling object lesson, readily  gave permission, and the ������fiend"  lined up with the other boys���and  ,won the race. To this true tale  ;there is, of course, no moral, unless  it be that horse races are not the  only races that are things of uncertainty.  :_[   Fatal End of a Mishap.
