Kansas Citv��� July 4.���Amid  scenes of tumultous enthusiasm,  befitting such an event and such a  day, the Democratic national convention began its session today.  But, after sitting until a late hour,  tho unexpected climax.of the day,  tho nomination of Wjlliam J. Bryan  as democratic candidate for president, has failed of realization and  all of the larger business of the con-  convention awaits the completion  of. the, platform.' The convention  lias adjourned until 10:30 o'clock tomorrow morning.  Very little that was tangible developed in. the vice-presidential situation tonight, although the Stevenson candidacy apparently met  with favor, and there seemed to be  ��. possibility of this being the solution of the question. The determination of the Indiana delegation  to put Shiveley in the field, caused  ,��i. little diversion during a part of  .the day, but Mr. Shiveley distinctly  stated that he was not a candidate  ;ind that he would not be.  Terrible Oar Accident.  Tacoma, July 4.���Over a hundred people, passengers on a car  bound for this citj', were plunged  into a gulch at 20th and C streets  shortly after 8 o'clock this morning.  HARD FIGHT AT TIEN TSIN  Horrible Barbarities Practiced.  London, July 5. 2:35 a. m.���The  commanders of the allies in Tien  Tain inform the correspondents  that it would be suicide to reach  Pekin with the troops now available in the face of the colossal force  of imperial troops and Boxers occupying the country between Tien  Tain and Pekin. So far from taking the offensive, the 12,000 international troops at Tien Tsin and  the 8,000 others at Taku and intermediate points, can barely keep up  communications, fighting incessantly with overwhelming numbers,  using far more artillery pieces thau  the allies.  This telegram has been received :  "Shanghai, July 4���11:15 a. m.���  Tien Tsin city fell betweeu 7 and S  o'clock on the morning of June  80th."p  It is understood that Shanghai  undoubtedly referred to the native  city of Tion Tsin from whicli the  Chinese have been bombarding the  foreign quarter, and the dispatch is  ��� taken to mean that the allies are  more than holding their own there.  Other advices received by way of  Shanghai aver thab the Chinese  losses around Tien Tsin are - betweeu 7000 and S000 according to  official estimates.  The correspondent of the Express  at Chefoo telegraphing Wednesday  pays: "Admiral Seymour was  wounded while sitting in a houso at  Tien Tsin by Chinese sharpshooters.  Official news' received at Chefoo  shows that the Chinese have been  guilty of horrible cruelty towards  the wounded and captured, subjecting them to what is known as  "LingvChe" or the slicing process.  Under this hideous rite, the bodies  of the fallen have beeu mutilated.'  " TJie Russians are retaliating by the  wholesale shooting of natives."  The situation, according to the  Express correspondent," shows signs  _c-s; ^drifting into ..barbarism ,_and.  "savagery. Revolting "stories are,  toldof barbarities practiced upon  Japanese and European prisoners  captured on the way to Pekin,  though it was not known before  that admiral Seymour lost any  prisoners.  The Chinese troops are marching  towards Tien Tsin, the Chinese say  they left behind them trails of rapine, fire aud blood. Native women  were ravished and children were  cut in two.  Direct tidings from Pekiu end  with the dispatch sent by sir Robert Hart on June 25th. According  to roundabout reports, it is asserted by the Chinese that Prince Tuan  is personally directing the assault  upon the legations. He conferred  houors and gave large sums of  money aud other presents to the  '���leaders of the Boxers and the-commanders of the troops who drove  back admiral Seymour, and also  -gave money to every soldier-taking  ���part-in=the operations; "  Au edict of prince Tuan has  reached -Shanghai ordering the  southern viceroys to assemble the  vessels of the Chinese lleet and to  attack the warships at Shanghai.  Those who were standing on tho  platform dropped off, only to be  bruised and wounded by the heavy  body of the coach, while the others  inside were killed outright and  maimed before they knew what  had happened. The car jumped  tho track and was smashed to kindling wood in the bottom of the  chasm over a hundred feet below.  The dead will number nearly three  score, for there are many of the injured who will die, and there are at  least sixty of the passengers of the  car now in the various hospitals  and under the care of their own  physicians.  LATE NEWS FROM SHANGHAI  CJ  Heavy Task Ahead.  London, July 4.���A special to the  Express from Shanghai says: "Totai  Shong of Shanghai issued a proclamation on Wednesday which  practically forbids foreign warships  approaching the -Yang Tse Kiang,  saying that if they did so, the  Chinese authorities will not hold  themselves responsibile for' the  consequences, lt is cousidered-that  the Chinese officials are preparing a  way to evade responsibility if an  outbreak occurs. Even Li Hung  Chang is suspected.  '"The foreigners are simply aghast  at the extent of the Chinese armaments which have been systematically accumulated."  "The decision of the admirals not  to attempt the relief of the besieged legation forces has filled the  entire European community," the  Daily Mail's Shanghai correspondent says, "with bitterness and despair. A few, however, affirm that  no other course is possible. The  Aveakness of the allied forces left  no . other course possible. ., It is  pointed out that the Chinese opposing Seymour were only a fraction  of the huge force now cutting off  tiie capital from Tien Tsin, and  which.nijsnbers 20jO.OOQ._jiearl:v*_ .all -  well armed. The ~allies "nave *no~  means of transportation, and there  is no "food in the country, as it is  being laid'waste.  ' The question of- ammunition is  also a serious ono. Only Japan,  and, to a lesser extent Russia, are  able to push up war material in the  vast quantities made necessary by  the continuous fighting. Though  transports will soon arrive at Taku,  the present pressure is not relieved.  "The concensus of opinion among  military and naval authorities is  that it will require at least 50,000  men to rescue the Europeans in Pekiu. The allies will have to hold  Taku in strength, and the occupation of strategic points on the railway to Tien TsiuAvill be most difficult. Tien Tsin itself is none too  strongly held."  Among the edicts received at'  Shanghai on Juue 23rd were orders  for the foreigners to leave Pekin  Avithin 24 hours. The legations  Avere-tobe"sealed"up_ancl"_tlie���flag-  staffs cut down. Another edict  issued on June 22nd annouqeed that  jjrince Tuan and Kang Yi are the  supreme chiefs of the Ihochund, the  Chinese name for the Boxers.  Dispatches received at Brussels  report that the secretary of the  Belgian legation at Pekin has been  killed by the Boxers.  The correspondent of the Daily  Mail at Shimonsheki, telegraphing  under date of July 3rd, says count  Ito, in the course of an interview,  said the emergency had for a moment obscured the gigantic questions in the background. It Avas  desirable, he declared, that there  should be a permanent settlement  iioav. Some of the powers Avished  to postpone a settlement, because  they were not ready for it, but it  Avas evident that England was not  Avilling to postpone a decision.  United States' Position.   .  Berlin, July 4.���An important  dispatch from Washington was received at the American embassy  here tonight. Ambassador White  was absent at the Leipsie celebration, but secretary of the embassy  Jackson immediately apprised the  foreign office of the receipt of the  message, and on count von Bue-  Ioav's return from Wilhelmshaven  a long conference occurred between  the two. It is understood  that the dispatch clearly  outlines the entire present  Chinese policy of the United States.  The main features of the program  are the restoring of order in China,  the obtaining of full damage for  outrages and the loss of life among  American citizens and missionaries  residing in China.  MAKING   COOD   HEADWAY  Ore Shipments Increasing.  Kaslo, July 4���[Special to The  Tribune].���The Ruth Mines have  done the obvious; they have  bonded from Mike Kerlin and his  partner, Wardell, the Mascot claim  on Ruth mountain, in the Slocan,  on which the big strike was made  some weeks since, and which Avas  fully reported at the time. The  bond is for $30,000.  Among the possibilities at the  LastChance this summer is an electric light plant. There are between 80 and 90 men at work in  the mine.  J. Wilson, of the C. P. R. telegraphs, was in Kaslo the other day  and arranged with one of his copartners for the latter to do the  rest of the work on the Legal Tender group of fractions. The Legal  Tender itself is crown granted, but  the two remaining fractions on the  Noble Five mountain have some  work to be done upon them before  a grant can be obtained! and this  Avill be performed this summer by  men under the superintendence of  Caleb Freeman, one of the owners.  The ore shipments through Kaslo  port are attaining quite a respectable total. The Whitewater is  shipping a carload of concentrates  daily and the Payne and Slocan  ;Star are pretty regular exporters to  the-United States smelters. For  the first 25 days of June about 1700  tons of ore were brought here, over  the Kaslo & Slocan railway. The  total shipments frout - January 1st  of this year to June 25th' were 5118  tons, as compared with 8100 tons  for the same period last year; but  it must be remembered that the  Slocan is only picking up again  after the shutdown.  The neAvs from,the Lardo-Duncan  country is still encouraging. New  strikes are of  weekly  occurrence  and capital is coming into the- dis-  :OTicu^-X^6-.tiavim*risTjU-utJ uie ittteai/;  property-.to he started up iri that  region. Alexander Dick, of Rossland, is the moving spirit in the  Lavina-Butte Consolidated Company .which owns the property. He.  has set men to work on a 400-foot  tunnel. -   LEGATIONS FIGHTING HARD  Safe on June 27th.  London, July 5.���The Times'  Shanghai correspondent, telegraphing under date of July 3rd, 10 p.m.,  says: "The folloAving information  has been communicated to me from  a trustAvorthy source. It was  brought by special courier, Avho  left Pekin on June 27th.  "He states that 15,000 Boxers and  Chinese troops attacked the Iega-.  tions on that date.   They were re-  pulsed with loss. __   "One gate of the inner palace  only is open daily for a few hours.  The emperor and empress dowager  are there surrounded by their personal attendants, all Boxers. The  imperial r princes have erected an  altar in the palace Avhere ��� Boxer  rites are performed.  "The attack of the allied forces  upon the native city of Tien Tsin  began at 8 a. m. June 30th, The  main object is the destruction of  the city fort from which the foreign settlement is shelled.  "I am informed that the total of  the Japanese troops i.s 15,000 and  that a further, force of 30,000 has  been mobilized and is ready for embarkation."  Closing Bound Dewet.  London, July 5���3 a. m.���The  various telegrams received from  Pretoria and elsewhere in South  Africa, Avhile not giving an account  of the fighting, represent the converging columns as making Dewet's  roving ground more and more contracted and the possibility, of his  defeat and capture hearer. Heavy  artillery fighting was heard near  Vicksburg on the third. The Boers  are massing in great numbers in  the Lindley district. . State secretary Reitz has gone to Hamburg  Avith part of the Transvaal treasure.  Cut Their Way Out of Kumassi  London, July 4.���A telegram has  been received at the colonial office  from colonel Wilcocks, dated Fumsu, July 3rd, saying native messengers who have arrived at Bekwai  announce that the governor of  Ashanti, sir Frederick Mitchell  Hodgson with several officers and  their wives and families have left  Kumassi and arrived at Ekwanta,  twenty miles southeast of Kumassi,  and Avas proceeding through ��� Den-  lcara on his A\-ay to' Cape Coast.  The messengers added that many  Avere killed in breaking out of Kumassi. The i-umor appears to be  Avell founded, although colonel Wilcocks fails to understand Avhy he  has not received news from the  governor. The colonel intends to  proceed to Kumassi and retake the  place, if it is evacuated.  CUSTOMS RETURNS ARE BIG  Last Year's' Compared.  .r  The returns from.the Nelson customs office foe the month of June  constitute interesting reading for  citizens who believe in Nelson's preeminence as a.commercial center.  The figures Avill repay a little study  and are as follows:'  IMrORTS, JUNE 1900.  Dutiable import value...   Free import value .*.,....'..  8,772  Total import value...

USED THE LAST CARTRIDGE  Then All Were Killed.  Shanghai, July 4, 5 p. m.���Three  Chinese servants of foreigners have,  it is rumored from good sources,  oscaped from Pekin-. They report  that all the foreigners, 10,000 in  number including 400 soldiers, 100  members of tho Chinese customs  staff and a number of Avomen and  children, held out until their ammunition was exhausted in the  British legation. The* legation was  finally burned down and all the  foreigners were killed and mutilated. It is reported that Kwang  .Hsu and the doAvager empress have  been poisoned.  Won Four Eaces.

AVashington, July 4.���Mr." Wu,  the Chinese minister, is in constant  correspondence by cable Avith the  viceroys of the great southern provinces of China. The substance of  some of these communications he  has made known to tho state department; others have been withheld. It is not known Avhether or  not tho minister has the means of  communicating with Pekin. If so  the channel must be tortuous, involving the use of some viceroy as  an intermediary. There is correspondence in progress between the  various Chinese ministers in Europe and the minister at Washington.  These facts taken in with the  urging of Li Hung Chang's request  that neutrality be observed by the  powers tOAvards the southern Chinese provinces are regarded in diplomatic circles here as pointing to  the deA'elopment of a combination  on a large scale of the great viceroys and ministers against prince  Tuan and his Boxer adherents in  Pekin. The impression is here  groAving, that no matter what happens at Pekiu the dh'ision of China  is already an accomplished fact,  though not on the lines contemplated before by Europeans. It is  felt that all that part of China  south of the Yellow river has  parted forever from north Chiua,  but, contrary to the common expectation, it is now* maintained  that these vast provinces are not to  pass under the direct control of  Europe and America. They are  either to bo erected into another  Chinese empire under a new dynasty, or are to continue their existence as independent nationalities, the present. viceroys, perhaps,  becoming petty kings and princes  of-absolute power in their, oavu dis-  The' Mclnnes Correspondence.

There are iioav five mills crushing  good ore in Nelsou district, namely,  the Ymir, the Yellowstone, the  Athabasca, the Granite and the  Venus. It is safe to say the five  mills are crushing 300 tons of orea  day, of the average valuo of $10 a  ton. This means that Nelson district is producing over a million  dollars a year in gold. The Venus  ���mill is running successfully, the  first brick from the trial run being  on exhibition at the Imperial Bank.  Correspondence Published.  Victoria, July 4.���("Special to  The Tribune.]���Ex-lieutenant governor Mclnues publishes in the  Colonist tomorroAV morning the confidential correspondence betweeu  himself, sir Wilfrid and tho Dominion secretary of state Scott. Mclnnes blames Scott for beiug the  cause of the delay in Mclnnes not  forcing Semlin to hold a session  immediately after Martin left the  Semlin government last August.  Scott's letter shows that he did advise this, but he says he did so unofficially. Mclnnes claims, hoAvever,  that Scott could have written only  with the sanction of the Laurier  goA'ernment and therefore he felt  compelled to comply. He intimates  that the reason Scott advised the  delay Avas to prevent Joe Martin  scoring at a session called before  Semlin could reorganize his cabinet.  BOMBARDINC TAKU FORTS  Additional Details.  Victoria, July 4.���Details of the  bombardment of the Taku forts  were received today by the Riojun  Maru. When the bombardment  commenced the British Algerine,  Italian Itlis, German Atago, U. S. S.  Yorktown .and Russian Korrejetz  AA'ere.within two thousand yards of  the forts. A Shanghai correspondent of a Japanese paper thus describes the fight: *  At one o'clock on - Sunday morning, while the allied fleet were  quietly anchored, 'without warning,  China, declared war against the  world by - opening fixe from the  .forts at Taku upon the gunboats  inshore, the British Algerine, Italian  Itlis, Japanese Atago, American  Yorktown. The first shells were  harmless, but afterwards, many,  struck the Algerine and Itlis.  The fleet opened a terrible fire,  blowing the forts to pieces. The  Russian troops on the land side are  reported to have co-operated. Afterwards at daylight the forts were  occupied by strong landing parties,  who drove the Chinese outside at  the pojnt of the bayonet, killing  hundreds- as they fled northward.  It is Reported that, the Algerine  and Itlis are damaged. There'- are  many casualties but no list is available.  Japanese correspondents say that  the Yorktown, after withdrawing  fjra^��iienKc*-^-*J--r^-v^-'t--*ti---y  On June 1st 639 Japanese, German and Russian troops were  landed to guard Tonku station and  at daylight on the morning of the  bombardment when the forts were  being fast demolished, they charged  the Chinese outside and-carried the  square fort, killing many iu a  bayonet charge. At the same time  the ships landed parties who attacked the Chinese outside on the  point Avho were driven nortlnvard  Avith great loss, four hundred are  said to have been killed. The damages to the ships and lists of  casualties have been reported in the  cable dispatches.  Advices received .by the Riojun  Maru also tell of the trouble betAveen the French and Russians and  the British over alleged preference  shoAvn by British railway officials  to the British in the matter of engines for trains' going to the front^  -At-Tien Tsinon-June-14 th7inspe"ct~  or Weir, a British raihvay employe,  Avas attacked by a French soldier  Avith a bayonet. The trouble Avas  finally settled by the British aud  American consuls and the railway  men.  Tiie Japanese steamer Higo Maru  had got up to Tien Tsin on June  18th to carry away refugees from  that city.  Troops to Come via Canada.  Montreal, July 4. ��� George  Lynch, representing the Daily Express of London, avIio was Avith sir  George White in Ladysmith, passed  through here this .morning on his  Avay to China. He said that in the  event of war being declared there  Avas a probability of tho troops  being sent via Canada. The question Avas being considered in London  Avhen he left there, and was fa\*or-  ably received owing to the Suez  canal and Red Sea route being oppressive at this season of the year.  The trip via Canada Avould ensure  the troops landing in superior condition, and, by using steamers from  Vancouver to China, everything  would be complete.

MUST FICHT AGAINST ODDS  Details of Engagements.  London,   July 4.���A Tien Tsin  dispatch dated Tuesday, June 27th,  gives a few interesting details and .  interesting items of the odds which  the British, Americans and Germans  under vice-admiral Seymour had to *."  contend against.     The officers paid-  a high tribute to the splendid work - ���-���.  in the continuous fighting in the in--   \,  tense   heat   of   the   most   trying   *", >  climate.

FEW  PEOPLE  AT  HENLEY  Preliminary Heats.  Hbnlby, July 4.���The great English roAving meet of the y>-ar  opened today Avith a lack of interest and little of the excitement usually associated Avith the regatta.  The houseboats numbered less than  a dozen compared with the usual  hundred or more. The toAvn is  mourning the scarcity ot visitors,  while the absence of demand for  tickets to the various grand stands,  clubs and enclosures proves the  lack of society's interest. The unsettled weather did not help matters, and AvithdraAvals reduced the  starters*' in the various races to  forty. The few foreign entries  were further reduced by the wirh-  draAA*al of the Berliners from the  Stewards Challenge cup, AvhileEion  decided not to contest in the Grand  Challenge cup race.  There were thirteen preliminary  heats today. For the Diamond  Challenge sculls H. T. Blackstar defeated Preval, a Frenchman.  Kruger at Nelspruit.

This  outlay,  in addition   to  securing an up to date plant, Avould  provide    for   underground    Avires.  And upon a basis of 5000 subscribers  it is estimated  that the business  housed could be given an efficient  service for  $80   per   annum,   and  dwellings at $18.   The comparisons  between state and private systems  appears to be wholly ihfavor of the  former both as to the cost of service  and efficiency.    Of the state system  Switzerland has the cheapest with  a -rate of $8 per annum and Germany the highest Avith a. rate  of  $20,  while priA-ate systems range  from $24 per annum in Denmark to  $125 in Russia. ���       '���  ���  If the ratepayers of Nelson endorse the money by-laws passed by  =the^councilr=street=AVorlr=iT!air=be=  carried on for the remainder of the  year, sewers.can be laid where they  are needed, and the Avater and light  dends  for Canadian Pacific shareholders, and already railway stocks  have commenced to go down.

The  carrying of 'the by-laws means that  Nolson will keep on as a progressive  u p-to-date town; .their defeat means  that all city Avork must of necessity  be brought to a standstill.  Nelson is the, ono .fawn in the  interior that is having a steady and  permanent growth. Is it good  policy to allow, our rivals the opportunity to say that we have come  to the end of our string?  A ykaii ago, feAV trades in Nelson were. organized. On Monday  over four, hundred men marched in  | the Dominion Day celebration parade, as members of labor unions.  Of .the number, a   third   were   the  .heads of -families. Avith .homes of  their"'.-own   in   Nelson and   whose  children attend our public' schools.

The birth in the United States,  of a league for the annexation of  Canada, is regarded as a joke on the  north, of the 49th parallel. There  is less annexation sentiment in Canada today than at any period Avithin the last twenty years. In twenty  years hence annexation talk will  not eA*en be a recollection.  The Conservative members of the  Canadian   senate Avi 11 not add to  their popularity by bucking the increased   tax   upon'  Chinese   immigrants.' . Protecting the inoffensive  Chinaman in Canada from Laiirier's  head tax of $100 is not very good  'business Avhen the inoffensive Chinaman  in China is murdering European AATomen and children.  It looks as if minister Tarte -will  succeed in shifting the responsibility  reason it should not be difficult to  convince the Frenchmen that they  made a mistake.   As a mark of consideration for  the Canadian volunteers Avho are  serving in South Africa a material  amendment Avill be made to the  Elections Act by the house of commons.

THE   CAPITAL   OF   CHINA.
A naval oflieer, who has just returned from the Asiastic station,
recently made two journeys to
Pekiu by way of Tien Tsin and the
railroad, which the Boxers have in
.part destroyed, and along which
ihe foreign marines and sailors are
now advancing to the Chinese capital. He described the approach to
the Chinese capital to a reporter as
extremely uncomfortable, even at
tlio best of times, Nob only is the
journey by rail A'ery tedious, but
the preliminaries to landing from a
ship-of-war are inconvenient and
even dangerous.
"The Taku forts," he said, "so
frequently referred to in current
despatches-are adobe structures on
t.he coast at the mouth of the Pei
Ho. Either from lack of enterprise
or of studied purpose, the Chinese
-permit a dangerous .bar to exist off
tbe mouth of the Pei Ho iu front of
the forts: This bar and tho
shalloAvs about it extend so far out
that men-of-A\*ar are forced to lie
fifteen miles offshore, entirely out
of sight of land.
* 'Wheu a naval officer has occasion
to A'isit Pekin, he must drop from
his ship into a little launch, and in
this light craft make the journey
across the bar aud to the point
Avhere he is to take the train for
Tion Tsin. The journey by,-.rail
thence is about 20 miles. The hour
of departure is always 'uncertain,
and the train is extremely slow.
The road runs through a densely
peopled region in Avhich are few
European?. Tien Tsin itself is a
considerable Chinese town on the
Peinflo. It has a small, foreign colony, and is likely, in view of disturbances at Pekin'and elsewhere
in the interior, to have this colony
considerably enlarged by refugees.
"The journey from Tion Tsin to
Pekin is mado at better speed than
the journey from the coast to Tien
Tniu ; besides for $5 one' may have
the privilege of riding iu an imperial postal car, Avhich has some of
the comforts of .the American parlor-car. It is a little misleading,*
hoAA*ever, to speak of the journey
to Pekin by rail, for the nearest
station is about.five miles from the
city. The abomination of modern
civilization may not come nearer
the sacred city. The journey from
the station.to Pekiu is made oyer
one of the Avorst roads on earth, and
in a peculiarly. uncomfortable
vehicle—the Chinese country cart.
"Pekin itself is a, city of a million
inhabitants, standing1 in a desert,
Avithout sewei'S, and without a public water supply.    The_fil.thjpf_the-.
~pla.ee,* AA'hich is almost unbelievable,
offends'- the nostrils'at every turn.
The streets are ill-paved, and. getting about the city is unc'omfora'ble
and even dangerous.. Pekiu is wall-'
oil with a most picturesque piece of
masonry, but the city has outgrown
its bounds, and from the top of the
wall one may see the outer suburbs stretching'wide and densely
crowded.
"It is hardly accurate to say that
Pekin has a foreign quarter in the
sense in Avhich that phrase is under-:
stood in the treaty ports. Tlio
foreign residents are tha members
of the legations, tho missionaries
aud their households.. Each foreigu
household lives in a •compound' of
its own. These compounds are tho
only clean places in tiie city. The
compound of the British legation is
large aud attractive. The same' is
true of the plot occupied by the
Russian legation. The American
legation occupies a neat but far too
small compound, near the city wall..
. "The-legations and the missionaries have a'social life of their oavu,
and the representatives of foreign
powers give brilliant entertainments. The social life of the legations, however, goes „on in the
presence of a vast hostile population, and is rendered a little uneom-
. foitable at times by reason of national jealous fears and suspicions.
The presence of a large Russian
force at Port Arthur, just across
the Gulf of Pechili from the Taku
forts,'does., not tend to lessen the
uneasiness of life at the legations.
An Insurance Decision.
Ottaava, July 4.—An important
decision Avill be given at Bryson to-
Is now prepared to issue Drafts and
Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,
Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.
morroAV by judge Lavergue.
Richard Dagg of Bryson sued the
Liverpool, Londou and Globe Insur-'
ance Company for $258 insurance
on some buildings Avhich had been
burned. The company contested
the payment oh tho ground that
the buildings Avere not occupied, as
represented in the policy, and set
up the plea that this annulled the
policy. Judge Lavergne Avill order
the company to pay the insurance,
because the agent knew all the circumstances Avhen he accepted the
risk. :'     - ■:■
Cassini Was Wrong.    '
London, July 1.—Count Cassini,
late Russian ambassador to China,
said in an interview: "I am surprised to see the Chinese resist as
they are doing. When I learned
that the ..Chinese had purchased in
Germany of recent -years fifteen
thousand Mausers,~Avith a thousand
cartridges for each rifle, I felt satisfied it was money Avasted. Recent
events show I Avas wrong. Port
Arthur, a first-class fortress, was
taken with a loss of 15 men, but
four hundred Europeans Avere killed
in the capture of the paltry forts
at Taku.'! It must.be admitted this
is a serious change. The discipline
of the Chinese is also changed."
Count Cassini does not believe the
Chinese government itself excited
the insurrection, nor does he share
the idea that the doAArager empress
has become the instrument of
prince Tuan. He says she is a wo-
man of such strong Avill that she
Avould rather commit suicide  than

THE Bank of Montreal opened for business on Monday, 3rd November, 1817, in premises in
* a building belonging to the Armour Estate, situated on St. Paul Street, between St. Nicholas
and St. Francis Xavier Streets, with a paid-up capital of $350,000.
The first president was John Gray, aud the first cashier was Robert Griffin.
In the year 1819 the capital was increased to $050,000, and in the folloAving year to $75,000. In
1829 the capital Avas $850,000; in 1811, $2,000,000; in 1845, $3,000,000; in 1855, $4,000,000; in 1860,
$6,000,000 ; in 1873, $12.000;000, at.Avhich" it now stands.
In the first full year (1819) of the Bank's operations, a dividend Avas paid'at the^rate of 8 per cent,
per annum, and since then (-with tlie'ex'ceptions of the years 1827 and 1828, Avhen the Bank did not
pay any dividend), the annual dividends Jiave ranged from 6 to 10 per cent, (or say a dividend of 12
per cent. Avith a bonus of "4 per cent.), according to the earnings. But, of late years 10 per cent, per
annum has been the rate paid.
After 8 per cent, had been paid as dividends in 1819, a balance of $4,168 remained on hand, and
-was laid aside as a rest. From that date of small beginnings the rest has steadily grown. In 1825 it
$30,780, going down to $12,064 in the folloAving year, and then up again to $107,084 tAvo years later;
in 1830 it stood at $31,300. Five years lafcer.it stood at $80,660, reaching $197,828 in 1837; in 1840 it
showed $89,480 ; in 1850, $120,192; in 1860, $740,000 ; in 1870, $3,000,000'; in 1880, $5,000,000 ; in 1883,
$5;750,000; in 1884, $6,000,900 ; and noAv it stands at $7,000,000, and there are additional undivicled
profits amounting to $427,180. ' .        ,     _
On the 1st January, 1858, the system of decimal currency was adopted in the Bank of Montreal,
and since that date all monetary transactions have been recorded in the Bank's books in dollars and
cents. Previous to that date, the Bank's Avere kept in what .was styled Halifax, currency—pounds,
shillings and pence—the pound being of the value of $4.00.
On the 1st January, 1858, the Montreal Branch was established as a distinct and separate business
from the Head Office, Mr. E.'H. King being appointed as its first.maua.ger.     "."--■.
In the year 1862, the designation of the - chief officer of the. Bank was changed from Cashier to
that of General Manager.   Mr. David Davidson wrs the first General Manager. -
In 180s the Bank of Montreal was appointed Banker iii Canada for the Canadian Government, and

MONEY TO LOAN  CITY LOCAL NEWS  A shipment oi' sewei- pipe for tlio  corporation arrived yesterday and  the work of laying the pipe in the  trenches on Front and Lake streets  is to be proceeded with at once.  No arrests were made by the city  police during the celebration beyond a few inoapables who were  taken to the cells to sober np.  The charge against S. A. Hobrick  of Slocan Junction for selling venison out of season was resumed yesterday before magistrate Crease.  No evidence was oJT'ered for the  prosecution and the case was dismissed. G. A. Stewart Potts appeared for defendant.  The Nelson llifle Association  meets tonight at the armory to arrange for the third C M. SI. A.  match which takes place on Saturday.      ���*:.' "������;'.  On Saturday the plates of the  new.mill at the Venus mine were  cleaned, in order that the mill  might start the new month with a  clean sheet. During the preceding  days 105 tons of ore and waste rock  had been milled, and after leaving  a couple, of hundred dollars' worth  of gold on. the plates enough was  taken off to make a $715 brick,  whicli is now at the office of the  Imperial bank.  . The intermediate laeroses club,  having failed to find a team in the  district to oppose them, has decided  to play baseball, and will arrange a  game with" the Stars of Rossland  shortly.  Taylor & Hannington, acting for  the Mansfield syndicate, have secured certificates of improvement  for 12 mineral claims located in  Camp Mansfield.  In the children's float, wliich was  compelled to drop out of Monday's  trades procession through..'an unfortunate accident, the central figure was queen Victoria, as the empress of India, surrounded by dusky  attendants. The character was  charmingly impersonated by little  Miss McFarland.  The   Lake   Park   pavilion    was  (crowded last night and a most enjoyable evening was spent.  Eighteen candidates presented  themselves for the annual examination for teachers' examinations at  the public school, and four "more  are expected today or tomorrow.  The Spokane Falls & Northern  train was two hours late last night.  The reason was stated to be that it;  was delayed by the Spokane 4th of  July excursion to Loon Lake.  The Ladies' Aid Society of the  Methodist church have arranged to  bring Miss Lottie L. Tillofcson of  St. Paul, Minn., elocutionist and exponent of Delsarte, to Nelson for a  performance ou Wednesday evening next. Miss Tillotson is au exceptionally clever entertainer and  the performance will be well worth  witnessing.  L^^A^marriage-was^celebrated^y^s^  terday at the Methodist parsonage  between R. Macgregor of Nelson  and Mrs. MeKenisie, also of this  city. The ceremony was performed  before a small number of friends by  the Rev. J. H. White. G. W. Taylor was best man and Miss" Ida  !Lawr bridesmaid. The newly married couple left last night on their  honeymoon trip to Vancouver,  whence they will return hero to  make their home. Mr. Macgregor,  who was one of the original owners  of the Joker mine, has many friends  in Nelson.  Tho local lodge of Orangemen  will attend the Congregational  church, at the opera house, on Sunday evening at 7 o'clock. The line  of march will form at Fraternity  hall at 0:30 o'clock. All members  of the lodge and visiting members  of the order are requested to be  present.  John Hamilton of the C. P. R. is  authority for the statement that  his road carried more passengers  to and from- Nelson during this  "year's celebration than ever before,  aud no one is iu a better position  tohave accurate information.  Stanford University won the ball  game yesterday against the Spokane Amateur Athletic Association  by six runs to four.  bill is changed nightly, drama and  comedy being intermingled, they  are creating a most favorable opinion. Last night the company won  hearty applause and created roars  of laughter in "A Wife Wanted."  Specialties were introduced 'tween  acts which added much to the success of the ehtertaintainment. Tonight "Lady Audley's Secret," and  "Cherubs" will bo presented by the  entire company, and those who attend are assured of a pleasant evening.   Association Football Match.  A great football match was  played ou the recreation grounds,  in which the' Nelson eleven defeated a picked team by nine goals  to none. The Grand Forks team  agreed to remain in the city and  play, and urged the gamo on the  local management until the latter  consented, although most of the  home team ...would have preferred  to take au evening off after Monday and Tuesday's games. In order to give -'the. 'men from the Forks  a pleasant time the Nelsou team  arranged 'for' a ' dinner , at the  Waverley hotel and advertised  tho match. Their disgust can  be imagined when they learned  that Grand Forks had backed out  at the last moment and gone home  on the afternoon train. Their performance in this respect was anything but sportsmanlike, and the  Nelson footballists will steer clear  of the Grand Forks outfit in future.  In order that spectators might not  be disappointed a . picked team  stepped into -the breach, and at'7  o'clock, the players lined. up as  follows:  ESTABLISHED 1892  NELSON.-.        ������.
