 s_j_u____t___wum__  **��  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  tribune  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  WEDNESDAY MORNING JULY 25 J 900  Sp3f  '&%mjtt  ���ymm  PRICE FIVE CENTS  SAFETY OF AMBASSADORS  Still Uncertain.  London,   July 24.���Despite the  Chinese minister's statements and  despite Sir Claudo MacDonald's letter of July ith a strong impression  contimies to prevail at the foreign  office that the ministers at Pekin  were massacred on July Obh.   The  Associated   Press correspondent'is  informed that not ono scintilla of  evidence is yet in the possession of  the foreign  oflice leading them to  disbelieve    the     reports    of   the  murders.    Sir Claude MacDonald's  letter with its   account of severe  lighting in progress   merely   confirms the government's forebodings.  -   William Pritchard Morgan, member of parliament for Merthyr-Tyd-  vil and   whose knowledge of and  interests   in  China are extensive,  informed the Associated Press correspondent today that he was positive from cable  messages from his  agents   that   the members of the  legations were alive on July Oth.  Consultations are in progress between the cabinet ministers and  officials as to the course which is to  be pursued should the ministers  prove to be alive. The contingency  of China holding them as hostages  is uppermost in the minds of all,  although the Associated Press cor-  ��� respondent is officially informed  that the Chinese diplomats have  not yet hinted at such action.  Negotiations between the powers  have brought out mutual assurances  that ..the military expeditions to  China are for the sole purpose of  relieving the legations, aud that  there is no intention to partition  Chiua. Hence, should China agree  to deliver the ministers alive, no  power will havo a reason for continuing aggressive., military operations except Germany, whose minister is'undoubtedly dead, and even  Germany, to quote a high British  ' official, - will have to forego the  emperor's assertion that he would  "not stop till the German flag floated  overJPekin." .        .    .  \> -2Srfor.the'rother powers, it'is em--  piratically stated that-they have  unanimously agreed that with the  safe delivery of the ministers the  aggressive campaign ends. All rumors of an international agreement  regarding the future of China subsequent to the return of the" ministers are false.. The agreement is  purely negative, and based upon  the lines stated by secretary Hay,  of which tho independence and integrity of the Chinese empire are  essential features.  If the imperial edict proves true,  the powers, still holding their  forces in readiness to enforce demands,- will adopt pecuniary indemnity. No territorial propositions will be considered. In com-  mouwith other - powers,. Germany  must, through arbitration or otherwise, guage the damages by the  loss of the life of her minister by a  pecuniary   standard..     The. same  seniority ^ among the commanding  officers here.  It has been admitted by all foreigners here, military and civilians,  that the fall of the city was mainly  to the galalntry of the Japanese  forces.  SLOGAN VERY PROSPEROUS  Belle Isle Strikers Win,  St. Johns, Nfld., July 24.���The  Belle Isle coal mine strike was  ended this morning. Tho men  practically gained what they demanded.      RUSSIANS IN A BAD WAY  Manchuria Overrun.'  St. Petersburg, July 24.���A dispatch which has been received here  from General Crodekoff at Khabarovsk, dated July 22, reports that  the steamer Odessa which left Czara-  bin on July 16 brought tidings of  the Russian force that left Te Lin  July 7 en route to Charbin. Ib  appears that 200 men started with  a large convoy of Chinese women  and children. After constant fighting, which was often at close  quarters and with bayonets, they  were again attacked by the Boxers  on July 12.  The Russians lost heavily and  much of their transport and ammunition. At last accounts they wore  threatened by 15,000 Boxers. Engineer Jugovitch at Charbin had  found it impossible to send sufficient  help as he required all his available  forces to defend Charbin. The place  contained thousands of unarmed  employees with their families who  have been concentrated from along  many sections of the railway.  General Grodekoff considers that  the,situation is bad. Attacks are  daily threatened, and rebels and  marauders are overrunning Manchuria. The general says the local  governors have little authority, and  tbatfanatics dominate the situation  rule will" apply as to the loss of the  lives aud destruction of property.  HOW TIEN-TSIN IS NOW HELD  Three Colonels in Command.  Washington, D. C, July 24,���  The following telegram has been  received from'the Japanese minister for foreign affairs under date of  the 22nd, and is the report of the  Japanese consul at Tien-Tsin, who  wired it on the 21st instant:  Tien-Tsin is occupied by the  troops of four powers in the following sections���namely from the  north gate to the east gate by thes  Japanese; from the east gate to  tiie south gate by the Americans*  from the south to the west gate by  the English, and from the west to  tbe north by the French ; while the  Russians are in possession of. the  towns and villages on the lef t banks  of the Pei Ho and the canal.  A conference was held by the  generals and the commanding  officers of the allied forces with a  view to organizing a military government in the city and it was decided after a long discussion to appoint three administrators with  equal powers from among officers  of the three powers, Japan,England'  and Russia. Finally the following  oflicers were chosen : Lieutenant-  colonel Aoki (Japanese), lieutenant-  colonel Bower (English) and colonel  Wogacks (Russian). Upon the departure of Admiral Seymour for  Taku,  Admiral  Alexief   has   the  English Cricketers Comin/*;. '  London, July _ 24.���Cricketers  from England willmake a tour of  Canada and. the United States in  autumn,' arid-it is expected will also.  play;> association football, and^will  "endeavor" to af ra'rige:for a'aeries bf  .games, both in Canada and on the  other side0 of the line. In the  cricket matches it is intended to  play three games at Philadelphia,  one against the eighteen "Colts" at  the grounds of the Philadelphia  Cricket Club at Wissahickon, and  the other two against the Gentlemen of Philadelphia - on the  grounds of the Germantown  Cricket Club and on the grounds  of the Marion Cricket-'Club at  Haverford.

Wreford Brown, who have been  here before, and ,R. E.* Foster, one  of the most brilliant batsmen in  England. Foster this year made  three consecutive centuries in first-  _class_matches,_and^-last_week^his-  innings of 171 for Oxford against  Cambridge at Lord's broke the  record for the highest individual  score in the Varsity games.  Hold-ups in Chicago.  Chicago, July 24.���According to  the police, a daring attempt to hold  up the "Big Four" passenger train,  due here at 6 p. m., was foiled yesterday " by the timely warning  given the authorities. Six men  and three boys, all armed with revolvers, waited several hours during the afternoon at the Deer Park  station. A wagon load of bluecoats  hurried to the scene and were met  by a brisk fire, which they returned.  After a few minutes' fighting the  police rushed at their opponents.  They captured three boys, each  armed with two pistols. The six  men, three of them colored fled.  Ambassador Draper Resigns.  Worcester, Massachusetts, July  24.���The Gazette has a special from  its Milford correspondent announcing that general W. F. Draper of  Milford, has sent to Washington  his letter of ^resignation as ambassador of th* United States to  Italy. The reason given is necessity  of attention to his private business.  The Plot Was Discovered.  Paris, July 24.���It has just leaked  out that a plot existed at the end  of June to assassinate the Chinese  Minister here, Yu Keng, and also a  member of the legation. The secretary of the legation,'Major Parma,  an Italian, in an interview today  admitted that the report in circulation to that effect was true.  Properties Being Bonded.  Kaslo, July 24.���[Special to The  Tribune]���Neither the war in China  nor the Boer war will suffice to  keep English capital out of the Slocan now that the parliinentary  crisis seem to be over. A representative of English capital, who arrived here a few weeks since, has  just received cablegraphic inquiry  from London, England, asking for  particular news of Slocan development this year, and a favorable report has been sent in reply. With  the price of silver higher than for  some time past, with lead firm, and  with a good fall in prospect, it appears as if the Slocan was once  more to enter upon a period of  prosperity second only to that  which prevailed in the years that  followed Eli Carpenter's eventful  trip^ up Kaslo creek to the Payne.  The Liberty Hill on the south  fork of Kaslo creek has been bonded by the French syndicate represented here by J*. J. Fleutot. Active^  work has been started on it. The  property is owned by W. Briggs.  Mining on Slocan lake is progressing. - The Enterprise has resumed shipping ore and the Hampton, on Springer "creek, has'sent out  a test shipment of three tons of  high grade ore assaying 770 ounces  silver. Pete Larsen and C. D. Rand  of Spokane may decide to open up  the U & J group on Ten-mile creek,  as the miners who have just done  the assessment' work declare that it  promises big. The Slocan City men  who own a two-thirds interest in  the one time famous Two Friends  have given a bond of their share to  P. McVicars. The remaining third  of. the property is held by R. Marpole, ��� captain Tatlow and other  Vancouver parties.  J. Baker, and Neil McMillan .have  done their assessment work on the  Colonel Sellars group'on. the south  .fork of Ten-mile and declare that  ' the ledge matter is improving" all  the while. ���* They have' a two-foot  r,leadv off* galena-, and ��� talc>* >*W.;"; C:*  Adanis of Slocan City has' bonded  the Lone Stargroup at Silverton.    .  The Wakefield and the Vancouver |  were the shippers from Silverton  last week.     The former sent out  four carloads and the latter two.  It is reported that some correspondents have, in their dispatches,  asserted. that general Dorward  thinks colonel Liscum blundered  in taking the Ninth regiment to  the.right instead of to the left, and  that the feeling is strained between  tho Americans and British. The  fact is that the greatest harmony  and co-operation exist. General  Dorward has asked the names of  Americans to. report them for gallantry.  THREE STRIKES OF GALENA  'Excitement in Kaslo. *  Kaslo, July 24.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Great, excitement   was  caused in Kaslo today by the news  of three magnificent strikes on the  sou h fork   of   Kaslo   river.   The  most remarkable of the three was  tha? made on the   Bismarck claim  whieb^ was' bonded at one time by  Frank Sherwood of Spokane.   The  find 'was-most unexpected.   It was  maJe about twenty feet to the east  of the upper tunnel, and consists of  clean galena, from four to twelve  inches wide.   The   vein has been,  stripped.for thirty feet, and old  .time - miners say, that it is the most'  important event*'of the year.,  ,   Another, good  find   is the one  made on, the Cork mineral claim  owned by   the.* French - syndicate.  They have eigtit \feet of galena in  an open cut.    They are driving a  tnn'nel to crosscut:   The Cork is at,  the bottom, of. the same hill at the  summit of "which is the Bismar ck.  The Granite King is the claim on  which-the third .strike-' was made.  It is owned * by--Kaslo people.   A  few feet below the surface'they.,  encountered  "thirty-two inches of  galena and/they have' struck the  some: lead   100- feet below. 'This  property is a gold as well as a'silver  one. '".      ..   ;"���''' '  WASHINGTON IS OPTIMISTIC  MISSIONARIES   AT   PEKIN  ARSENAL CAPTURED AGAIN  Tien-Tsin Dispatches.  Tien-Tsin, July 13���via, Che-Foo,  July 13, and Shang-Hai, July 24.���  After fighting all day, a force of  2000 Japanese, supported by British and Russians, captured the Chinese fortified arsenal two miles  east of the, city, making a night  attack. The foreigners charged  under a very heavy fire" from the  arsenal, following the Chinamen  _andkilling=.400_of_them._The-for--!  eigr? loss was heavy, but is not reported.  The Chinese have bombarded the  foreign city of Tien-Tsin heavily  for. three days, and killed some  British sailors on a tug today, be-  besides several Frenchmen. The  foreigners are mounting heavy guns  from the fleet, amon g them being four  twelve pouuders and four four-inch  guns, and will attempt to locate  silence the Chinese guns.  An explosion of dynamite killed  twenty Russians. Two battalions  of the Ninth United States Infantry and 300 marines from the cruiser Brooklyn, disembarked and  started for Tien-Tsin today on  lighters. As they went up the  river the foreign ships cheered them  heartily. Refugees of all nationalities will be taken to "Japan by the  transport Logan.  Tien-Tsin, Sunday, July 15, via  Che-Foo, July 17, via Shang-Hai,  July 24.���Chinese from the walled  city report the foreigners in Pekin  are living, having taken shelter in  a bomb proof. About 7000 Chinese  were engaged in the battle here on  July 13th, more are coming from  Pekin.  General Nieh was imprisoned here  because he opposed making war on  the foreigners, but afterwards was  released on condition that he would  fight them. To this he acceded with  lukewarmness. After the battle he  committed suicide.  A large part of the walled city  was burned last night, and today  the Chinese' held a perfect orgie,  plundering, smashing houses and  fighting like demons over stores of  silks, furs and jewelry.  ' Expects :Good News Soon. ��� ; -  Washington^ D. C, July. '24.���'���  ,-The -'--state trdepai*tm'eht'T-rahd"'the  Chinese legation substantially  agree in the estimate of six to eight  J days as time necessary to get a  reply to the president's answer to  the appeal of the Chinese government. 'According to the best information urgent messages are being  transmitted between Pekin and  Shang-Hai by the " flying express "  mentioned in Consul Fowler's cablegram a few days ago, This, according to the Chinese, is a relay system  of mounted messengers, similar to  the old pony'service across the  plains, and used when - the wire  communication is' interrupted.  The relays make about two hundred miles a day. It is four hundred miles from-Shanghai to Pekin  and this seems to agree very well  with the speed made in forwarding  and returning t]ie-_Congei'_message.  Assuming from Sheng's dispatch  that a movement was on foot on  the 18th to get the foreign ministers started from Pekin to Tien-  Tsin under an escort of imperial  troops, the state department would  not be surprised to get definite  news from the headquarters of the  allied forces in a short time.  The distance from Pekin to Tien-  Tsin is 75 miles and at this season  the trip is usually made by road  from Pekin to Tong Choo, a point  on the Pei Ho, twelve miles below  the capital, aud* *the remainder by  boat. This would take four days,  supposing the escort of. imperial  troops met with; no resistance. If  the move from Pek/n was made  within two days after Sheng's information was received, ib would be  possible, that the legationers and  the escort are now in touch witli  the headquarters of the allies, always supposing that nothing serious happened to the -party on the  road.    Franco-Russian Scheme.  Tien-Tsin, Saturday, July 21.���  The Russians announce their intention to keep control of the entire  railway line between Taku and  Pekin until the conclusion of hostilities when tliey propose, they  say, to restore it to the Chinese.  Admiral Seymour strongly disapproves allowing them to repair the  line beyond Tien-Tsin. He considers the British should insure the  undertaking and conduct the repairs. Meanwhile the French are  endeavoring to obtain control of all  the river tugs. It is believed that  they intend to share the control  wibh Russia.  In a Fortified ChapeL  Boston, July 24.���The American  board has received a letter from  Mrs. Frances D. Wilder, dated Tien-  Tsin June 11th, in which the writer  tells of the departure of the Tung  Cho missionaries, under a United  States guard, to Pekin, the burning  of the Chong Tu college and looting  of the residencies. She says all the  missionaries in Pekin, British and  American, have gone to the Methodist compound. All the civil service  people are at the British legation.  Only two places have to be defended. Under date of June 13th, Mrs;  Wilder wrote:   ,  I do not know how much the  secretary of the mission is able to  write you from Pekin, but I am  constrained to Jell you what came  by letter to the Methodist friends  yesterday.  The large chapel is converted into  a fort by the walling up of all but  one entrance and most of' the windows, with loopholes for firing from  within. The gates also are bricked  up, with spikes and barbed wire on  the top" of the walls and a net work  of barbed wire across the compound  in places. They have .25 marines  there and 40 firearms besides 4for  the missionaries to use..' Thereafe  78 in the compound (besides Chinese,'  4300) and perhaps 50 women. and  children.  The minister is doing all he can  to" protect  them.   It   is said the  Chinese have guns mounted on the'  walls covering the legations, and  will destroy; them if the city gates  aro forced.   There are' more than  2000 .foreign ��� troops , nearing the  city and their numbers are increas-'  ing- daily.   All were safe at Pao  Ting Fu on the evening of the 11th.  Yesterday some Chinese troops* of,  general Nieh's' force, who favors!  foreigners,   started   for , there-, to  bring the missionaries here or pro-,  tect them there. ���       -      -  ��� I'shall cable-as soon as-there is'  a change in the conditions at'Pekin. t  -The^, burning- of * the4'college -'and  ���looting of houses in Tung Cho was  not done by Boxers, but by the  soldiers and the crowd. The army  almost to a man is against the foreigners.  LONDON DOES NOT BELIEVE  and fully  emperor's  and   the  publicity-  Legations Are Safe.  London, July 25, 4 a. m.���Sir  Claude MacDonald's message," dated  July 4, appealing for relief is  regarded in London as only a pre"  lude to the absolute confirmation of  the massacre. This is the opinion  also of the Japanese minister here.  The newspapers suggest that the  British minister's despatch was  held back and released about the  same time as Mr. Conger's undated  _message.=;_ = =���  Although the American and British forces are working harmoniously, the questions of the means  of communication between Taku  and Pekin give evidence of jealousy  between the powers, and other dispatches from Tien-Tsin show the  language difficulty has been hampering the military operations.  A dispatch to the Daily News  from Tien-Tsin, dated July 14th,  and describing the fighting, says :  "Colonel Liscum mistook the road  and was nearly isolated. General  .Dorward, on a premature report  from the Japanese commander that  the city had been entered," ordered  a general advance, which proved a  costly error.  "Much valuable time was lost and  trouble occasioned yesterday afternoon because tbe messengers between general Fukishimi and general Doward did not understand  each other's language."  The Tien-Tsin correspondent of  the Daily Mail says that when the  Chinese regulars saw the Boxers  who led the attack lying killed they  began to retire. He asserts the  admirals have decided that it would  be. useless to move toward Pekin  without at least 60,000 men.  Sweeping Liberal Victory.  Ottawa, July 24.���The election  of Dr. Douglas, the Liberal candidate for the second district of  Queen's,Prince Edward Island, must  bo regarded as a very decided victory for the Liberal party, indicating as it did a complete revulsion of  feeling in that province from the  conditions prevailing a few months  ago. Dr. Douglas' majority over  the   Conservative  candidate,   Mr. I  Wise, was 303. In 1897 the vote  for Mr. Wise, then the successful  but quasi Liberal candidate, stood  850, and that for Mr. Alex. Home,  the Conservative, 710. The Conservatives expected that Mr. Wise  would draw heavily from the Liberal vote, his former political predilections having beon towards the  government. When the votes were  counted, however, it was ��� found  that Dr. Douglas, the Liberal candidate, had been elected by a handsome majority.     *  AWAITING CHIKA7S ANSWER  Russia. Suspected.  Washington, D. C.^ July 24.���The  state department is again in a waiting, attitude regarding China.   It  has' frankly,  promptly  answered' the   Chinese  appeal   for   mediation,  correspondence     given  today makes it appear that the next  move   is for the Chinese government.   It is expected to accept or  reject our terms, at. once,, and in  either case the answer must convey  tidings of the. state of affairs at  Pekin and the welfare of the legationers.        ' ' ->  The belief is.- not 'concealed here  that the chance's for successful mediation are slight.. .If;.the. United  States does not succeed in inducing"  the European powers to be' lenient  in their treatment of the' imperial  government of China, the govern-'  ment will not be drawn into further hostilities after we have taken  care of our own affairs, but we will  withdraw, taking care,- however, to  let it be understood that this government will not allow its property  interests in China to be injured by  the action of any of the powers.

Salisbury Gets Only Promises.  London, July 24.���The Chinese  minister, Sir Chih Chen Lo Feng  Lu, had a long interview with Lord  Salisbury this afternoon. The  general situation was discussed and  the Chinese minister reiterated his  "belief-that"tKeT~British minister to  China, Sir Claude MacDonald, and  the other foreigners at Pekin were  safe. Lord Salisbury reiterated his  demand for direct communication  with the minister at Pekin. To  this request the minister could only  renew his protestations that it  would be speedily accomplished if  feasible.   ^   Eailway Clear of Boers.

Victoria, July 24.���[Special to  The Tribune].���In the house today  Martin made attacks on Eberts and  John Irving. He spoke of Eberts'  pre-election speeches concerning  the futile legislation of 1899, which  carried an insinuation of Eberts'  inability to draft bills. He was unable, however, to draw out the  attorney general who persisted in a  "fight fair" policy, and would riot  allow himself to be attacked out of  order unless with a chance to reply.  Irving's attempt to get an injunction  in the Cassiar elections was the text  of bitter comment jby Martin who  attempted to color it into an act of  revenge in the captain's part because of his recent defeat in that  constituency. Hon. Mr. McBride  came to the rescue and turned the  tables on Martin by the assurance  that Irving was a much greater  favorite in the north than his tra-  ducer, whose legislation of '99 would  not soon be forgotten by that electorate.  An emei'gency supply of $150,000  was received in a message from,tha  lieutant-governor is to be considered on Friday. This is for the payment of salaries etc. The standing  committees will be struck tomorrow.  Prince of Wales a Doctor.

The situation along the  Fraser, therefore, offers an opportunity for the new government at  Victorhvto show whether it is progressive or not; whether it will  grasp the opportunity to enact  legislation for the purpose of preventing industrial warfare; or  whether it will pursue its outlined  policy of investigating commissioners which can result in nothing  but the promotion of strife.  Tory newspapers never tiro of  directing attention to tlio crack  which Israel Tarte has made in the  great Liberal part}*, This is less  hazardous work than attempting to  choose a leader from among the  rival Conservative bosses.  -W. L.'Mackenzie King, a grand-  *sonL-of- William' Lyon Mackenzie,  f^-'S wiirbe the first editor of the'Labor  -Gazette^ which the Laurier govern-  *��� ment will launch between now and  %%J  the next general   elections.     The  ;" editor ��� accomplished    much   some  time' ago' for   the victims of the  '* sweat-shops of the eastern cities,  -( and will therefore not be without  sympathy while he himself sweats  * to sqiiare the Liberal government  with the" labor vote.  The   strike   of   the    fishermen  - along the Fraser river has .not yet  been settled, and the business men  . of Vancouver and New Westmin-  " ster are now beginning to fear that  the canners will close down for the  season.       This,   it   is    estimated,  would_mean"arloss~to_thepeople"of  British   Columbia   of   close   upon  $2,000,000,   and would  affect   bell '.    tween 10,000 and 12,000   persons.  The   situation   along    the   Fraser  ' river today should be a great edu-  : cator as to the advantages of compulsory arbitration.   If what the  organs of the canners say is true,  the canners should welcome such  legislation.   They say the canners  have   exhausted   every argument,  and offer*-d every possible concession, but without avail;   and the  outlook is that the business community, which had   no   voice   in  the dispute, stands to lose thousands    of    dollars    through    the  obstinacy of a few of the fisher-  , men's leaders.   At this distance it  is difficult to pass upon the merits  of tbe contentions of the parties to  the dispute, but assuming that the  canners' version is true, that the  strikers   are , most   unreasonable;  what better justification could there  be for the passage* of such legis-  '"^ Jation as would prevent dissatisfied  persons from inflicting such widespread  injury  upon the business  communities at the Coast ?   Why is  it,   that if the wage earners are  always in the wrong, and always  unreasonable, that the objection to  compulsory arbitration1 conies not  from them, but from the employers?  Compulsory arbitration  has been j  Prohibition appears to be a  stumbling block for British Columbia's lieutenant governors. Thomas  Mclnnes first became unpopular  through setting "pop" before his  ministers at state dinners, and sir  nenri Joly lias scarcely had time to  warm his seat at Victoria before  the members of the Dominion Alliance accuse him of jobbing the pro-  hibitioners of Quebec in connection  with the prohibition plebiscite.  Op the 77,000,000 persons who  make up the population of the  United States some 10,000,000 odd  are classed as foreign born, and of  this number the Dominion of  Canada contributed the respectable  total of 1,020,000. Most of them  are near the top of the social heap.  BIG  LARDEAU   DEAL.  Trout Lako Topic.  On Monday last a deel was put  through by M. L. Moyer, whereby  the Pedro and Ruby Silver groups,  comprising nine claims, become  bonded to a Philadelphia syndicate.  Tbe figure of the bond is $00,000  and the payments cover a period of  eighteen- months. The first payment is for $20,000 and falls due in  sixty days. It is the intention of  of Mr. Moyer to begin work' on  these claims on Monday next, with  a gang of five men.' This working  force will be added to from time to  time as the exigencies of the situation call for it.  The Pedro and' Ruby Silver  groups are two of the richest and  best known properties in the Lardeau. On the former the ore taken  out during the course of development is remarkable even in this  camp because of its grade, assays  running'from 2000 ounces silver up,  and just the other day after the  season's work had been commenced  on it samples of ore were' brought  down, some of which are now in  the' Topic's cabinet, that are solid  chunks of gray copper and will run  over 2000.ounces,in silver.  On the Ruby Silver, where there  is exposed a two-foot ledge of solid  ore, some ..very .high, assays have  been obtained. One kind running  $110 in gold, the other giving  returns of 500 ounces silver and $25  gold. This group is located somewhat higher up the mountain than  the Pedro and on a different lead.  is the fact that the Yukon council  'holds private sessions to which the  public are not admitted. The Yu-  koners look, on the council as a  species of parliament to which the  public have the right of access,but'  legal, adviser Clement considers it  as a cabinet meeting and refuses to  attend an open session. Instructions from Ottawa have been asked  for on the subject.  League Games.  Philadelphia 3, Cincinnati 1.  Springfield 5, Rochester 6.  Syracuse 8, Providence 1.  Montreal 1, Worcester 2.

The correspondent of the London  Daily Telegraph, after describing  the events that led up to the battle  of Biddulpli's Berg on May 31st,  and how grass fires were started on  the battlefield by the careless use of  matches, says:  Meanwhile the Boer gun was  pelting shell against our battery. I  regret to put it on record that the  four guns of No. 2 battery were  wholly unequal to the task of  silencing the Boer gun., The enemy  burned black powder, he was not  more than two or three thousand  yards away, and his gun, fired more  projectiles than"pm* four. Our  ranging was wretchedly bad, and  when shrapnel was used the fuses  were so badly timed that the bullets  pelted into the hillside behind the  gun instead of into the gunners. So  ineffective' was major McCree's  battery that geueral Bundle ordered  iip the Seventy-Ninth. It did much  better, and in a few moments the  Boer gun was temporarily silenced.  All this time no rifle shots had been  fired, and not a Boer was visible except the few serving the gun. It  looked as if by some accident the  gun had been left behind, and that  > we had nothing to do but go and  take it. It seemed as if we must do  it quickly. The grass fires were  now roaring acres in extent and a  vast pall of smoke was spreading  itself abroad, obscuring the Boer  position. General Rundle gave the  order for the Grenadiers to advance.  Colonel Lloyd called upon his men.  They sprang to their feet, and, with  a front like a wall, and as steadily 1  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  as if at a review in Hyde park, they  moved out of the smoke and across  the open space towards the gun.  Instantly the Boers turned their  shells against the advancing Guards.  Their projectiles were badly aimed,  and a group of us behind were in  more danger than the troops. On  went the Grenadiers for a few hun-  -dred-yardsrand-then-^crack-,���crack,���  began the rifles from the hillside.  There were more than the gunners  to settle with before the gun could  be ours. All the while the shells  were falling never a man was hit|  but within less than a minute from  the first rifle-shot wounded men began to come back, past where I was  standing and stagger towards the  field dressing station.  One big grenadier, whose arm  was shattered from wrist to elbow  with an explosive bullet���thousands  of these were fired by the Boers���  held up the -ragged mass of flesh  .and bone as he passed me and exclaimed between his groans. "They  are knocking our fellows over like  peas in there"���nodding -towards  the smoke���"and the fire is burning  the chaps' who can't get up. Look  at me." I had already seen what  the poor fellow referred to. His  beard and hair were singed almost  to the skin, and his forehead and  one hand was red and scorched by  the flames. While he spoke another  man came past, his face, streaming  with a blood from a wound in the  scalp where a bullet had plowed  from the right temple halfway  round his head. He, too, was  scorched by the flames.  The scene on the battlefield at  this moment was one of the most  awful description. The battle was  now fully developed. From the  front, where the grenadiers had  disappeared in the smoke, the  crackle of rifles was deafening, and  the bullets fired too high by the  Boers, fizzed���the word best describes the sound���past us inces-  sently.

LAY, Manager.  ���the bursting of shells and the  demoniac scream of shrapnel made  up a perfect pandemonium of sound.  Over all, and dominating all, was  the dreadful poping crackle of the  flames from tbe biirning grass,  while the smoke' hid everything.  Biddulph sBerg, the'Boer guns.'our  own guns the Grenadiers, and the  Scots Guards, who had moved up in  -support-of-thenvhad-all-vanished-  One saw nothing but vast rolling  billows of thick blue-white smoke,  rearing themselves far over the tops  of the hills. Out of this pall that  linng over the battlefield, came the  dreadful din, and from under its  edge .crept stricken and bleeding  figures, groping along in the semi-  darkness, or staggering feebly,  supported between blackened and  dishevelled comrades towards tho  busy doctors at- the rear. It was  bewildering, it was terrifying, it  was horrifying. One could hardly  believe it real but no realism of art  could equal the awful realism of  the pallid, drawn, blood-smeared  faces und swaying tottering steps  of the ghastly, figures that now in  a steady stream staggered, out of  the hell in front of me. But they  were not the worst.  Presently the bearers, singed and  scorched, came past, bearing motionless figures on dripping stretchers. Here is one helpless burden  feebly holding his helmet over his  face to save it from the scorching  flames. There is one who will feel  no more pain or suffering. The  rough woollen blanket kindly drawn  over the face of the still figure on  the stretcher conveys its own message. "It would have been burned  in there," said the bearer, using the  impersonal pronoun to indicate  what was the burden borne so tenderly between him and his comrade.  An hour later the dead lay where  they fell, for every effort could not  bring nearly all the wounded away  before the cruel fire had sucked out  what life had been left in the helpless frame by Boer bullets. I can-,  not describe the helpless feeling of  a non-combatant .like myself as I  set there on my horse watching the  terrible scene, unable to do more  than offer iny water bottle to a  parched sufferer. All around men  were making the most strenuons  efforts of a life-time; men were  dying within a few yards of where  I stood, dying deaths of dreadful  torture; what was a thousand times  worse, helpless, wounded men were  lying unable to move, watching the  greedy flame sweeping on towards  them, and no one could see to help  them, for what the thick smoke did  not obscure the tall, rank, unburned  vegetation hid from view, and a  wounded man's feeble cry for help  could no more be heard in that appalling chaos of sound than one  could hear the fall of a leaf amid  the-thunders-of-the-tempest.���One-  lost the sense of danger. There was  no room for the thought of personal  risk in the wild tumult of feeling  that filled one's mind. Ifc was not  an ordinary battlefield. I have been  on "stricken fields" before, and I  never felt anything like the sense  of helpless horror that I experienced  during those dreadful hours of the  the battle of Biddulpli's Berg. The  Boers evidently thought that the  smoke from the burning veldt was  intended to conceal something from  their view.  They shelled tlie*swirling, smoke-  wreaths, and the '.-shrapnel hissed  and snarled round the group of  which I was "-bhej'' but it passed  unheeded. We were thinking of  what was happening out there a  few hundred yards to our front. A  shrapnel burst overhead, and my  horse gave the sudden quivering  start of a stricken animal. I paid  no heed, except to pass my hand  lightly over the spot where the  bullet had plowed a long red furrow  down its side. A minute i later the  time fuse of a shell, a big lump of  brass over a pound ; in weight,  buried itself between a colleague  and myself. I stooped and picked  it up mechanically, as one would  pick up a scrap of paper while sitting chatting at one's desk, without  a thought that a few inches deflection of the missile might have  made me or the friend to whom I  spoke another helpless victim for  the flames. "I only'remember that  the only thought which occurred  to me was a sort of wondering conjecture whether the bullets which  the fuse had set free had added  another to the figures writhing in  agony from the twin terrors of fire  and lead.    So the day wore on,- and  still the stricken figures- came'back  from   the   firing   line.-    Most frequently they wore the red and blue  badge of a Grenadier, more rarely  the white and red tartan of a Scots  Guard, and at less frequent intervals the plain red semicircle and  white lettering of a man  of the  West' Kent   battalion.   The Yeomanry had long since disappeared/  unharmed, from view over a fold in  the ground.   General Rundle, ever  watchful amid all the confusion of  the surroundings, had observed a  crowd of Boers  galloping  toward  our left, and the Yeomanry, pulled  together by colonel Blair, had  ridden down aud driven off the force  that threatened our flank.  --=-Now��� and���then.-when-thG���windswept away the smoke for a space,  1 could see the Grenadiers and  the  Scots lying in the unburned patches  of grass and mealies, firing up at  the grey rocks, where never a sign  could be seen of the men who were  shooting so steadily down into the  smoke.    The Boers were nofc escaping all punishment.  Colonel Pratt's  artillery   was   searching   the   hill  from top to bottom  with  a fire of  shrapnel that missed no likely spot  of cover.    No less  than 800 shells  were discharged by tho two batteries during the course of the day.  The troops in front for four or five,  hours   lay patiently under a lire  that no other troops  in the  world  would have borne for half an hour  without  flying  in confusion.    The  Scots Guards and West Keuts are  beginning  to  retire  on our right.  The   veldt   has   all   been   burned  right up  to the foot of the berg,  and the khaki clothing of our men  stands out against the blackened  ground like targets.    It were murder to keep the troops longer under  fire; besides, the general during the  day   received   peremptory   orders  from lord Roberts to march to the  assistance of general Brabant, and  he is extricating his men with marvelous   skill  and coolness from a  position   of   difficulty.     Presently  the   Scots   Guards and the  West  Kents are clear of the zone of fire,  and the Grenadiers began to retire.  It   was    a    beautifully    executed  movement, carried out as steadily  as   if   on  parade.     I  think  there  never was a braver or a  better  lot  of men than the Grenadiers  I saw  go into and come out of a perfect  hell of fire in front of Biddulpli's  berg. There are no skulkers in the  Second Grenadiers. I saw no man  of the battalion go to the .rear unless he -helped back a wounded  comrade,.and men who went back [  for this purpose returned to the  firing line.- There were countless  acts of heroism during the day.  -  \'S- J'f  - r'.'P]  _ ."-Ml  Baker and Ward  Streets,-Nelson  NJadden House  The only hotel In Nelson that hM remained  nnder one management since 18B0.
