'���***,  Americans Protest.  London, July  1.0.���1:30 a. in  steins impossible to entertain any  longer the least doubt as to the fate  of the Europeans in Pekin.  Associated Press learns that  Hart, wife of sir Kobert Hart, director of Chinese imperial maritime  customs, on July 5 received the following telegram from her husband :  "Our people, including the women,  aie in the legations, prepare to hear  l he worst."  , The European governments havo  received from the representatives  at Shang-Hai a dispatch from the  governor of Shang Tung, dated July  ���'i. reporting the European troops  made a sortie from Pekin and killed  p'100 of-general Tung Fuh Siang's  ���^- forces and that the Boxers were  mounting guns to make a breach in  llie defences.  Under date of July 12th the  governor of Shang Tung wires as  follows: "Native soldiers and  Boxers have been attacking the  legations for some hours but'have  not yet effected'an entrance.; They  are now bombarding with large  cannon to" make a breach for a  heavy onslaught. I fear that all  tlio ministers, and the government  as well, are in great danger. - The  government is intensely anxious."  Finally came the news from  Shang-Hai that a breach had beeu  made and the foreigners killed. All  the dates probably refer to a much  cat Her period, but the presumption  ,is that the successive dispatches  give an outline of what has happened. The Europeans, having  reached the end of their resource?,  mule a desperate sortie and then  bravely met tlieir fate. The details  of the horrible story will probably  never be known.  Admiral Seymour's despatches  give'the latest uews regarding the  situation at Tien-Tsin. Telegrams  to tlio Associated Press show that  tlio operations on July 11 were a  brilliant success. The Japanese  cavalry aud a mobile mounted bat-  tei-y did splendid work. Four hundred -Chinese were killed and.six  gnus captured. At noon the settlements were again vigorously shelled  from the native city, aud the hosjii-  tiils and other buildings wero repeatedly hit. The moral effect of  the success of the allied forces upon  the Chinese is believed to be A'ery  " great.  The following is the text of an  appeal of Amcricaus in China,  assembled in mass meeting in  Shang-Hai, to their fellow citizens  at home:  "Urge the government tosendadequate forces to act effectively in  concert with .the other poweis. At  present the American forces are  quite disproportionate to the interest involved. Our commercial  interests in the northern provinces  are paramount, aud we consider it  a humiliating policy to entrust to  other powers the chief task, that of  protecting Americans,  "ATvti-foreigli outrages are raulti-  plying daily. Officials and'missiou-  aries are being massacred. The  fate of the ministers and their  families in Pekin is not known, but  a general massacre i.s apprehended.  AVholesalc massacres of native  Christians continue. The whole  country is terrorized. "Trade is  \f paralysed/- The speedy restoration  ^ if order and retribution are duties  .pressing upon all civilized powers.  ' The consequences of delay will be  disastrous. Not only are foreigu  lives and property placed in jeopardy but the loss of influence will  be incalculable."  The Shang-Hai correspondent of  t he Daily Mail says :  ���*l can assert positively that the  Chinese authorities had the dreadful news from Pekin a week ago,  and that Sheng knew that all the  foreigners in Pekin were dead when  he asked the American consul to  cable to Washington a proposal to  deliver the foreigners in safety ��at  Tieu-Tsin on condition that the  powers would suspend their operations to the north of Pekin."  The correspondent adds certain  details of affairs at Pekin after  June 25th. According to his story  tlio members of the legations made  daily sorties, sometimes by night,  and so successfully as to compel  The Chinese to retreat from the iin-  Hi '.cliate vicinity. These reverses  ha I a disheartening effect upon the  Cainese, and there soon began to be  oLJen signs of disaffection, followed  by desertions to prince Ching's  army, which was endeavoring to  c --operate with the besieged.  Ultimately Prince Tuan decided  to make a night attack in three  powerful columns.  rN  "At 6 o'clock on the evening of  July Oth," says the correspondent,  "fire was opened with artillery upon the British legation where the  foreigners were concentrated. For  two hours the wall were battered  with shot and shell, and huge  breaches were made in them. Then  a general advance was ordered, and  tho Chinese infantry, volleying constantly, moved toward the gaps.  The fire of the defenders, however,  was so accurate and steady that  the hordes of Chinese soldiers and  Boxers broke and lied in confusion  leaving laige numbers of dead and  wounded around the legation. They  could-not be rallied until they were  out of rifle range of the foreigners.  "Then prince Tuan, makiug a desperate appeal, induced them to  stand and return to the attack.  Artillery fire was then resumed and  at the middle watch a second attack was attempted.  "Unfortunately many of prince  Ching's troops deserted to prince  Tuan; Prince Ching fell and was  supposed to have been killed, but as  the search for his body was unsuccessful it is now believed he was  only wounded, and was carried off  and secreted by his faithful retainers.  "General Wang AVen Shao, although gray haired and 70 years of  age, valiantly led his troops in  person. He was killed and his  force, which was completely outnumbered, was routed.  "Throughout the night eperated  attacks were made on the legation,  but these were invariably repulsed  with heavy losses. ' Toward the  end of the third .watch, about 5  a. in., the allies had practically defeated the besiegers, who were  wavering and gradually withdrawing, but just then general Tung Fu  Siang arrived from the vicinity of  Tien-Tsin with a large force. By  this time the walls of the "legation  had been battered down and most  of the buildings were in ruins.  Many of the allies had fallen at  their posts, and the small band that  was left took refuge iu the wrecked  buildings, :which they endeavored  hastily to.fortify. -  "  . ';Upon.these.the fire of the Chinese,  artillery was how directed. Towards sunrise it was evident that  the ammunition of the allies was  running out, and at 7 o'clock, as the  advances of the Chinese force failed  to draw a response, a rush was determined upon.  "Thus, standing together, as the  sun rose the little remaining band,  all Europeans,.. met death stubbornly. There was a desperate  haud to hand encounter. ; The  Chinese lost heavily, but as one  man fell others advanced, and,  finally overcome by overwhelming  odds, every, one of the Europeans  remaining was put to the sword in  the most atrocious manner."  ATTEMPT MADE TO COERCE  Merchants in Nelson.  Last March^THE^TRiHKNE-  .had.  occasion to refer to the West  Ivooteuay Power & Light Company  of Rossland in a way that was not  at all satisfactory to the company's  managor. That company had been,  and still is, making persistent efforts to gain an entrance into Nelson, so as to be in a position to  compete witli the eity in sup2:*lying  electricity for power and light.  Tijr Tkihunk is opposed to this  scheme, as it believes that municipalities, wheu engaged in the business of supplying Avater and light  to the people Avithin the municipality, should not bo required to  enter into competition Avith pri-  Arate companies. This position is  not at all to the liking of the management of the West Kootenay  PoAver & Light Company of Rossland and the feAV in Nelson who  are opposed to municipal oAvner-  ship of public utilities, and attempts  have been made to coerce business  men in Nelson. Business men Avho  patronize The Tribune were told  that unless they made The Tribune apologize for its statements  regarding the West Kootenay  Power & Light Company of Rossland that the company would withdraw all its patronage from the  merchants of Nelson. The merchants so approached made it plain  to the man who approached them  that they AA'ould not do as requested. Since then the merchants  so approached are on the company's  black list. Yet there^ are men in  Nelson avIio Avill vote on Wednesday next against the city and in  favor of a company that has its  headquarters at Rossland. These  men are not numerous, it is true;  but the people of Nelson should  know who their friends are.  STANFORD BEATEN EASILY  Notes on Athletics.  Tho Stanford baseball team  proved comparatively easyr> victims  for the Nelson nine on Saturday.  It Avas a ragged game, however,  only in part redeemed by heavy  hitting. Waters pitched a splendid game, but got poor support,  Eacritt being the only man on the  infield avIio did not figure in the  error column. Eacritt had just five  chances and he accepted all of  them. He covered a great deal of  ground, and by fast work shut out  two promising.hits. .Nine-hits were  charged up against Waters, but as  an offset to this he gathered in no  less than tAvelve of the Stanford  at the plate. ���...-.  Cryderman, Avho occupied the box  for the visitors, was a mark, and  the "former heavy hitters of the  Nelson team, Avho have, been off  color for the past "two weeks, fattened up their batting averages,  Rockenfield getting more hits in  Saturday's game than he has made  this season on the home grounds.  The visitors' infield played very  ���good ball, but after McKeown got  hurt in the sixth inning, and the  ���outfield   was changed,  the  errors  came   thick   ant  fast.

London, July 15.���The appointment of lord Hopetoun to be governor-general of Australia, is probably the best that coiild have been  made, although the queen Avill be  forced to find a new eliamberlain,  Avhich is not an easy master. The  duke of Argyle may have received  the offer of the. Australian post,  but he could 'not have gone out  Avithout the Princess Louise, and  she could hardly be persuaded to  visit the antipodes Avhen the queen  was in advanced age. Some of lord  Rosebery's foolish friends, from  Avhom he should seek deliverance,  nominated him-for governor-general  of Australia, as they have for every  other great post, when a vacancy has  occurred, but there Avas nothing in  it. Lord Hopetoun is a statesman of  ability and tact, and his Avife is  handsome and clever and has charm  of manner. There are rumors that  the duke of Marlborough may become  lord  chamberlain,   but the  chief official of the court is never  selected hastily and the queeu's  wishes invariably prevail, although  it i3 a poli'. ical appointment. The  duchess of Marlborough is persona  grata both Avith the queen aud the  princess of Wales.  GLOOMY WEEKJUST CLOSED  Situation in China.  London, July 15���A gloomy week  has closed with the silence of tho  Pekin unbroken, find Avith the war  in South Africa;; dragging on at  heavy cost in blood and treasure.  The Britishconsul^-eneral at Shang-  Hai, repeating the message of the  governor of Shantung.province, has  expressed the Opinion that tli ere  can be little doubt respecting the  fate of the foreigners in the capital.  This is the closest/approach to news  from Pekin which', has been made  here within twenty-four hours.  There is belated information from  .Tien-Tsin describing in detail the  earlier stages of p the Chinese attack upon the foreign quarter, and  the effective Chinese artillery practice against the. Russians and  French during a .heavy rainstorm.  There are also tAvb' dispatches of a  later date from' Russian sources,  stating that the telegraph service  with Taku had. beeii restored, that  the railway was. under repair, and  that the allied forces Avere fortifying Tien-Tsin and.,, strengthening  their line of communication with  the seaboard.  The fact of paramount importance  was the silence of, the ministers.  Their last message" was sent twenty  days ago. There has been a slight  improvement in the situation at  Tien-Tsin; but there is no prospect  of an advauce , movement for a  month or six 'Weeks).until reinforcements have been received on a large  scale. These additional forces will  include nearly. 50,000 troops from  India, France and -Italy. Russian  troops are already in motion, but  there is no<officiAl.��.tatement'_of the  strength" of "the army which will be  employed. It Avill be the largest  combined European contingent eArer  in the field.  Japan has arranged to send 32,-  000 troops, and ��� possibly will increase her. force to 50,000 or 00,000.  There will be over 100,000 European  and Japan soldiers in China before  the end of September, and this  number may be increased to 150,000.  Retribution AA'ill be their mission.  There can not be any possible means  of securing adequate reparation for  the slaughter of the iministersand  from 700 to 900 foreigners, except  the partition of the empire after  the campaign, which will bo arduous and costly. This is the natural  sequence to a crime against all  modern nations.  ANSWER TO WU'S TELEGRAM  VIA TIEN-TSIN AND JAPAN  Accounts of the Fighting.  Washington, July 15.���The Japanese legation here today received  the following telegram from the  Japanese foreign office under date  of Tokio, July Oth, transmitting advices received from Che-Foo under  date of July 7th :  "A Tien-Tsin telegram of July  Oth reported that a Chinese army  of 10,000 men, Avith artillery, under  goneral Ma made its appearance  near Tien-Tsin on July 4th; ancl the  arsenal taken by the allies a Aveek  ago Avas recaptured by them. The  Chinese city of Tien-Tsin has been  fortified by the Chinese soldiers.  From tho north the .report comes  that more Chinese forces are moving and the condition at Tien-Tsin  is considered critical. Communication Avith Tong-Ku is threatened,  Avhence, on July Oth, by the steamer  Sakuramura, the Japanese residents  left for Taku."  Another telegram received at the  Japanese legation, Avithout the  sender's name but supposed to be  forwarded by the Japanese consul  general at Shang-Hai, reported that  Sheng, theShang-IIaitaotai,received  a telegram from Yuen Sih Kai,  governor of Shantung, stating that  a courier had arrived at Tsi Man  Fu bringing the folloAving Pekin  news: Two legations stood up till  July 3rd against the attacks of the  Chinese. The legation guards killed  about 2000 Chinese soldiers and  Boxers in the several engagements.  If their provisions and ammunition  last they AviII be able to hold out,  as the Chinese troops and Boxers  seem to be tired of attacking.  was of undoubted authenticity. It  represented the situation of the  legationers as desperate and implored help. The last Avord from  minister Conger came to the state  department from Pekin under date  of June 18th. At that time he  asked that Seymour's international  relief column, Avhich avus even then  doomed to fail, should signal its  approach Avhen near Pekin.  That AA'as just ono month and  three days ago and it would bo an  unprecedented defence for such au  inadequate and ill-fitted and provisioned force as Avas at the command of tho foreign ministers to  hold out foi1 that length of time.  Mr. Wu's cablegram from Sheng,  above given, did not begin as an  answer to the cipher message he  forwarded . fit secretary Hay's request to China in an effort to get it  through to minister Conger. That  message was to Youan Shi Kai", the  governor of the province of Shan  Tung. That official has replied informally that he has no news, himself but it is assumed that ho will  take prompt steps to forward the  cipher message. His status at this  critical juncture is unfortunately  not beyond suspicion, although Mr.  Wu retains full confidence in him.  Secretary Long: had two cablegrams from China, but he Avas inclined to set a negative A'alue upon  them because they made no mention  of a massacre of the legationers in  Pekin. He reasoned that admiral  Remey Avas in a good position to  get as early news as any one of  such an event. The admiral's message Avas from Che-Foo of today's  date, though as he is supposed to  be himself at Taku, it is assumed  Whole Truth Withheld.  Washington, July 15���Such news  as came to Washington today from  Chiua was distinctly bad. It consisted of a cablegram to Minister  Wu from Sheng, the imperial director of posts and telegraphs at  Shang-Hai, and, according to the  minister, was in reply to the urgent  message he himself had sent yesterday to that official asking him to  try and secure some neAvs from the  Chinese'capital. This cablegram,  Minister Wu regarded of sufficient  importance to carry in person  directly to Secretary Hay, who was  Avaitiug at his home for news. The  message as received from cipher,  was as folio a vs:  . The Pekin Noavs of July 7th says  that general Tuan Fuh Siang, in  disobedience of imperial orders, Avas  about to use guns; and the legations  and goA'ernment will be imperilled.  This news is corroborative of that  contained in consul-general 'Good-  now's recent cable from Shang-Hai,  although the consul-general's dispatch gave his Pekin news the date  of the sixth, saying the final attack upou the legations with guns  AAras about to begin on the seventh  of July.  It is surmised here that Mr. Good -  now got his news from Sheng, who  is certainly in a position to secure  the first news from Pekin. Aside  from the gloomy forecast given of  the end of the terrible struggle of  ,the legations against the inevitable,  the significant feature of the message is that of the coupling of the  fate of the imperial goA'ernment  Avith that of the foreign ministers.  Officials have derived some satisfaction from this portion of the despatch, as it sustains them in the  position they haA'e held from the  first that the Chinese government  is not at Avar Avith Christendom, but  is confronted Avith a formidable in-  surrection._ t__   ��� " .   .!'  There still remains a suspicion  that, Avhile Mr. Wu is undoubtedly  acting with perfect sincerity, Sheng,  who is represented to be a clever  and adroit man, may know more of  the actual happenings at Pekin  than he is willing to reveal at once.  It is feared that he is trying to  prepare the way for the disclosure  of terrible neAvs, hoping that by  letting it come out gradually the  blow Avill not fall with such  severity, and perhaps with such  disastrous results to his oavu people  as might be the case if the whole  story Avere imparted to the world  at once.  This news, it may be noted,  comes entirely from Chinese  sources. It is now 21 days since a  Avord has come directly from any  of the unfortunates besieged in the  legations at Pekin. The last message from there Avas from sir Rob-  "ert^HaTt^tl^En^illrmah^in^harge"  of the.Chinese customs service, and  that it was sent from that place  yesterday.  The Admiral stated that he had  ordered the Buffalo to Taku. She  Avas coming out to the Orient by  way of Suez, and was to report for  orders at Singapore where she was  to be directed to proceed to Manila,  or be directed to north China. She  is carrying a cargo of coal and a  number of sailors to recruit the  American volunteers.  The second despatch came from  Captain Bowman of the gunboat  Castine which is stationed at Shang-  Hai, and also was dated today. It  was purely on departmental business.  BOERS USE CLEVER TACTICS  LAST SHOT FOR THE WOMEN  Pekin's Awful Holocaust.  London, July 161���The correspondent at Shang-Hai of the Daily  Express, on the authority of. couriers who brought the story, gives a  very sensational account of the  slaughter of the Europeans in  Pekin. He says: "Maddened with  hunger, after Inwing been Avithout  food for many days, the members  of the legation and the guards  made a sortie on the night  of Juue 30th and -killed 200  Chinese in an unexpected attack.  o "General Tung Fuh Siang, enraged over the loss of so many men,  brought up heavy guns and prince  Tuan gave orders that eA'ery foreigner must be destroyed. His  Avords Avere: 'Destroy every,foreign vestige, and make Chiua a  sealed book to all western powers.'  "Prince Tuan had previously discovered that Prince Ching was supplying the foreigners with ammunition. He therefore ordered general  Tuug c Fu Siang to fire on Prince  Ching's troops and it is reported,  that Ching was killed or seriously  wounded.  "In the final attempt to cut their  Avay through, the legationers formed a square with the Avomen/inthe  center, and when the Boxersj-ealizr  ed that they. Averebeirig:; attacked,'  they became like Avild beasts and  shot each other in the dark.  "The foreigners Avent mad and  killed their ' Avomen and children'  with revolvers.  "Heavy guns bombarded all night  until the buildings Avere demolished  and in flames, and many foreigners  were roasted in the ruins. The  Boxers rushed upon them, and  hacked and stabbed both dead and  AA'ouuded, cutting off their heads  and carrying these through the  streets on their rifles shouting  fiercely. They then attacked the  native Christian quarters,' massacring all Avho refused to join them,  outraging the women and braining  the children. Hundreds of mission  buildings Avere burned."  ALIENS IN WIEN CHOW SAFE  More Catholic Missionaries.  Neav York, July 15.���Isaac N.  Ford cabled the Tribune from London at six o'clock this morning,  giving the latest Chinese news received at that hour. It is as follows : "There is still no neAvs from  Pekiu. An official statement Avas,  however, issued early this'morning  to the effect that the foreign office  had received information that the  Avhole foreign community from  Wien CIioav had been safely landed  at Shang-Hai. Private letters dispatched from Pekin on June 10th  describe the situation in the Chinese capital then as being serious  but not dangerous.  Missionaries from distant parts of  the city had come to the British  legation, as also had the Avomen  from the Imperial customs. Complete arrangements had been made  for the defence of the legation and  confidence Avas expressed that the  place could hold out until relief  came.  A Central News telegram from  Rome states that news of the mission massacres in China has not  stopped, and the Vatican is making  arrangements for a fresh influx of  Roman Catholic missionaries into  the Chinese provinces.  For $10,000 a Side.  Nkw York, July 15.���Jimmy  Michael and Floyd MacFarlaud  have been matched for another race  to determine the middle distance  championship. They met yesterday after the conclusion ot their  race, and after a long argument  made a match for $10,000 a side and  the gate receipts.  Lord Boberts Criticized.  London, July 15.���Botha's bold  manoeuvres   in the Transvaal and  the evidence   that   Lord Roberts'  campaign   is  dragging   in   consequence of the sheer weight of the  military mechanism required   for -  occupying large districts  of a hostile and impoverished country, are  at times almost disheartening. Lord  Roberts'first measure after entering Pretoria was the clearance of  the western Transvaal so that the  ground would be safe behind him  when he followed Botha eastward.  His next step was the concentration of forces in the" north eastern  corner of the Free State in order to -  crush   and   disperse Dewet's commandoes,   and   to accomplish this  purpose he Avas compelled to Aveak-  en the army of occupation at Pretoria and to remain on the defensive  there.  Botha seized the opportunity for  a brilliant and harassing counter-  stroke by which the Avestern Transvaal might be menaced and the-  concentric movement against Dewet  paralyzed. ; Rustenburg AA'as not'  captured and three other attacks  were foiled, but Nitral's Nek Avas a  success beginning Avith a well-  planned surprise; and ending like  Nicholson's Nek.  It is not yet clear whether DeAvet's  commandoes can be dispersed in the  Free State Avithout a prolongation  of guerrilla warfare for weeks or  even months, nor is it certain that'  lord Roberts can assume offensi\*e ^  operations against Botha and prevent a repetition of the attacks  upon isolated posts.  Criticism of Roberts is now  heard for the first time, aud there '-  is a disposition in military circles -  to censure him for alloAving the  small force at Nitral's Nek to be/  isolated ��� and, overwhelmed. Criticism is natural when the Avest end  is divided into cliques, Avith griev-  ances of pet generals to redress, but  it is not reasonable. Lord Roberts,  not being able to offer the Boers  any terms short of unconditional  surrender, is compelled to conquer  the country districts, and gradually  to narroAV the field of operations.  There must be many isolated posts,  aud the mobile Boer commandoes  are enabled .here and there to  swoop doAvn upon them.  The American civil Avar might  have beeu prolonged indefinitely if  Lee and Johnson, instead of surrendering when the contest Avas  hopeless, had divided their forces  into small bands and adopted guerrilla tactics. Botha and Dewet aro  brilliant leaders, and they are making a hopeless fight Avith obstinate  courage, but 10,000 Boers must  ^finally^yield^Avhen-there-are-200,000-���  against them, enormous as are the  difficulties of transport on the  British side.  Miscellaneous Mining News.  J. Mallinson Williams, manager  of the Chapleau, has received the  plans for the Chapleau mill, and  Avork ou the framework of the mill  Avill be started at once. The plant,  Avhich consists of a 10-stamp mill  and two Wilficj' table?, is being  supplied by Fraser ifc Chalmers of  Chicago.  The Anaconda Company and the  mines controlled by Marcus Daly at  Butte have definitely refused to  grant the request of the miners for  an eight-hour day, a request Avhich  Avas acceded to by the other great  Butte companies. From the latest  Butte exchange it looks as if a labor  Avar might supervene.  Bernard Macdonald, of the Le  Roi mine, Avas intervieAved on his  return to Rossland on Saturday  night as to the rumor regarding the  purchase of the War Eagle and  Centre Star mines by the B. A. C.  He denied the report iu the most  emphatic and unqualified manner.  The Trebelli Concert.  The advauce sale of seats for the  Trebelli concert ou Monday night  gives assurance of a big and fashionable audience. There are still  many seats left, hoAvever, and those  AA'ho have put off purchasing until  today Avill not be disappointed.  The program to be rendered by  Mile. Trebelli Avill be the same as  that given at Victoria, where the  concert was under the patronage of  lieutenant-governor Joly, and where  Mile. Trebelli took her audience by'  storm.  7 y -_  *____m��*,'x* THE TRIBUNE: NELSON B. C MONDAY JULY 16  1900  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.

Tho nine members  elected to the legislature from the  ridings in these great inland districts Avill obey to the letter the  will.of the people as expressed at  the polls. They believe that majorities should rule, and a large major- __rst, letter reads like the lament of  ity of the people of Yale and 'East   a man soured by repeated defeats  of the association. I f this scheme  works, Iioav easy it will then be for  the Mine Owners' Association to get  e\'erything it \A*auts iu the way of  rulings and legislation? But the  Mine Owners' Association will not  get what it wants. The government Avill consider the Avishes of  ten members of the legislative assembly elected from constituencies  iu which mining is either the chief  or an important industry, and these  tin members are pledged to the hilt  for Peace and Prosperity.  Tiik statement in the Miner that  property oAvned by mayor Houston  abuts on theimproA'ementsmadeon  Josephine street is not true, and  the man avIio made the statement  knew he Avas Avriting a falsehood  when he wrote it, and the editor of  the newspaper that published the  statement kncAV that it Avas false  when lie permitted it to be printed;  but then the man Avho wrote it and  the paper that printed it are both  noted for one thing only, that is,  unscrupulous lying.  Tub Miner says the city should  sell its electric lighting plant, it. is  presumed, to the compauy that  is operating the electric lighting system at Rossland. There is  no |reason given, therefor, other  than that the City of Nelson has a  man for mayor aa'Iio happens to be  managing a newspaper that is a  business rival of the Miner. The  average man Avill not accept this as  a sound reason why the city should  take a step backward. There are  three cities in the province operating electric lighting plants,  nameljr, NeAV Westminster, Kamloops and Nelson, and there are  nine other cities Avhose people are  sorry that they do not own their  own plants. But these are not  reasons that should have any  weight as against t.he opinions of  the amiable .old man Avho dishes up  editorial "hog-wash" daily for a  newspaper that panders to outside  corporations like the West Kootenay Power & Light Company of  Rossland.'_.   In England a century or more  ago, a Avriter who concealed his  identity under the signature of  "Junius" attacked all the public  ' characters connected with the government of the day, a popular  neAVSpaper publishing the letters.  "Junius" is now in Nelson, but his  aud West Kootenay honestly believe thnt further tinkering with  what is now known  as the   eight-  hour laAV will only result in starting  aueAv tbe   bickerings and contentions that were so harmful during  the year 1890.    The men Avho made  this declaration at the polls on June  .   9th are British subjects Avhose interests are  all in the  province of  British  Columbia, where  they  re-  ���side.���-The-Avishes-of-thcRC-men-Avill-  be respected.    No government can  afford to overlook or ignore them.  But the wishes  of the  people are  not to the liking of an association  Avhose membership is largely made  up of.men avIio arejeither.aliens or  aliens in t heir sympathies regarding  Canada and   Canadians.     The association   referred to  is known  as  the Mine Owners' Association.   The  association as an  organization has  taken a hand in politics and been  Avorsted in every encounter.    It is  now  trying to  obtain by indirect  methods what could not be obtained by direct methods.   The makeup of the government is  not to its  liking.    The minister of mines, it is  feared, will  not do the  bidding of  the    association.     So     the    government is to be made believe that  a     deputy     minister      is     absolutely, required, in order that the  department of mines shall not be  second "in importance to either the  department over which the attorney  general presides or the one haviug  for its head the commissioner, of -,  lands and Avorks. Hon. Richard McBride of Dewdney is to have a deputy, and that deputy is to,be either  Mr. John Keen, defeated candidate  of the Mine Owners' Association in  the Slocan riding of West Kootenay district,  or Mr. Roderick Fin-  lays on Tolmie of Seattle, Washington, who is at present the secretary  at the polls; and even if the letter  had merit, the writer is unfortunate  in  selecting   the  most'   unpopular  neAVSpaper in the province in Avhich  to publish it.  ��� ��� ���  The Moyie Leader says that the  payroll of that town amounted to  $24,000 for the month of June.    If  this rate is maintained Moyie "will  ha\Te peace and prosperity.  ���The-West-Kootenay-PoAver"ifc"  Light Company of Rossland has  boycotted merchants in Nelson because they refused to coerce The  Tiuhune. This is the company that  is supporting the Miner in its unscrupulous fight against the money  by-laAvs that the ratepayers of  Nelson will vote for on Wednesday  next. Ratepayers of Nelson should  sIioav by their A'otes that they resent the interference of this outside  corporation in their civic affairs and  that they, condemn the editorial  utterances of a venal newspapers.  THE. UNION'S   REPLY.  To the Editor���In your issue of  the l'l'th inst., Messrs. Leicester &  Kerr hove a lengthy card to the  public, Avhich, if they had adhered  to the truth, might have passed uunnoticed by anyone acquainted witli  the firm and its way of doing business.  I might .state here that Messrs.  Leicester & Kerr were placed on  the unfair list after the arbitration  committee of the Trades and Labor  Council had exhausted all the means  in its power to affect an amicable  settlement between the firm and  the Carpenters' Union. At that  time Mr. Kerr stated that it would  be quite satisfactory to them, if  they were placed on the unfair list,  Avhy do they object so soon ?  I should like to mention now,  what led to this trouble. In the  first place, when the union avas  organized it had no bylaws or constitution, but a statement was made ���  of the terms Avanted, and a committee met the contractors and  came to an agreement Avith them  on certain conditions, whicli agreement Avas signed by the contractors  present. Mr. Leicester's name is  near the top of the list. I. am  pleased to say that the other contractors have lived up to their  agreement. Had Messrs. Leicester  & Kerr done the same there would  be uo trouble today.  One of the condition? agreed upon  was that the contractors Avould engage union men only, but instead  of doing so, Messrs. Leicester <fc  Kerr sent east for non-union men  and got those Avhom they kneAV  would not join the union. They  stated the fact (before these conscientious men arrived) that they  expected trouble before long, as  they had sent away for men who  would not join the union. They  also hired non-union nieu in preference to union men and tried to persuade them uot to join the union,  promising them steady Avork, etc.  They claim they pay their imported  men more than union wages.. Well,  the union did not force them to  pay those men more than they are  AA*orth.  I believe that Mr. Leicester is as  conversant with the by-laws of the  various unions in the building  trades as any man in Nelson. The  arbitration committee found him  able to quote any clause that would  suit his side of the argument, or if  there was a question unanswerable  he knew it. So that in going contrary to the by-laAvs he must haA'e  known that unless several hundred  intelligent union men, AA'ere to giA'e  up their rights and allow one firm  to dictate to them there Avould be  trouble. But perhaps they take  this step for advertising purposes.  If so it may answer the purpose.  They further say that conscientious scruples of the men they imported prevent their joining the  union. Now, I understand that  both of these men have been members of carpenters' unions. If so,  perhaps they gave their Avord of  honor to live up to the constitutions ;and by-laAvs of the orders.  Where Avere their conscientious  scruples AA'hen they betrayed their  obligations and broke their AA'ord?  Messrs. Leicester & 'Kerr accuse  the unions of using them unfairly  and of lying. They do not state  where the unions have lied to them,  aud, I think, the so-called unfair  usage is the reilcction of their own  actions. I AA'ould rather be a little  more lenient with them, and say  they are mistaken or have forgotten some of the thiugs they said  before writing their statement to  the paper. The unions do not Avish  to deal unfairly Avith anyone, since  nothing is gained by unfair dealing.  But they Avill not be dictated to by.  two unreasonable men. Will they  please tell us Avhat they know of  the parties who aie advertising in  the east for men, non-union men  preferred, in nearly all lines of the  building trades to come to Nelson.  C. J.

A   BOXER'S   VIEW   OF   IT.  By way of reply to the continuous repetition in the journals of  Europe and of America that the invasion of China by the powers i.s  ,-jusbiiied by the fact that the invaders will carry to the people of  that country a higher civilization  than they now possess, a Chinese  merchant doing business in England  has presented to the London Ex-  pi-ess the Chinese view of the situation. Mo claims to be a member of  tho "Boxer" society, aud therefore  assorts a right to speak with  authority.  liis first declaration is that China  lias   had  a   civilization  similar   to  that now existing iu the Western  ���world and has passed from it to a  better one.    He says:    "There was  a time when we had your struggle  for existence, the race for wealth,  the ambition for power, and all the  haste,  the  hurry  and   the  worry.  We had also many clever inventions,  gunpowder,  printing and the rest,  but  in  the end we found that all  these things are unnecessary.    We  had our periods of religious dissensions and fanaticism.    \Ve had our  y        reformers  and    our  martyrs,   and  then   we  reached   toleration.    AVe  have  outgrown   all   these   strifes.  AVe   have   learned   wisdom.     Our  pissions  and  our   ambitions have  settled  down  to  a calm desire for  happiness in this world; our religion  i- reduced to a philosoijhy of.liFe.  AVe believe .that the best thing to  pursue in this world is happiness,  and  we   teach  our-  children  that  ^       'their happiness can be secured only  j      by the performance of duty.    We  I'olieve in making tho best of this  ��� life, wliich is the only one we know  anything about for certain."  Having laid down that inuch by  way of statiug the condition of  Chinese civilization and religions, he  went on to discuss tho present situation. "You propose," he said, *'fco  revive in China the worry, the disturbance aud the strife of the old  times. You wish to introduce ao  new religion concerning another  life in another world, about Svhich  you' cannot agree among yourselves.  You invite us to build railways, for  wliich we have uo use.. You wish  us to build factories so as to debase  our-beaiitiful arts and handicrafts,  and produce maehiu'e-made finery  in place of our delicate textures and  hues. Againsjb all that we protest.  We wish to be. let alone. AVe wish  to be free toen^oy our calm life and  the fruits of. our centuries, of experience. AVe do not wish to be tor-  ' -merited by quarrels about another  ~==^\:o.dd^yJioruoiiikdiit-yiis=to.beihappy=  in this one. AVhen we ask you to  .'������', go away you refuse, and you even  "'- threaten us with subjugation.if we  do uot give you our harbors, our  harbors, our towns and our land.  Now, having carefully considered  1 lie matter, we of the so-called  'Boxer society' have decided that  lhe only way to get rid of you is to  p kill you. AVe are not bloodthirsty.  We are not robbers. But when  persuasion, arguments and appeals  to your sense of justice are of no  avail, we find ourselves face to face  with the fact that our only recourse  i.s to put you out of existence."  Such is the A'iew of the situation  taken by the Boxers. It is another  illustration of the impossibility of  getting harmony between two widely different civilizations. That the  aggressions of Europe upon China  have been unjust is not to be denied.  Out of the injustice done to them  the Chinese have themselves become unjust, and their rage now  falls upon the innocent. Western  civilization must protect the traders  aud the missionaries who under  t reaties of peace have gone to China,  and war has become inevitable.  Nevertheless, the statements of the  JJoxer to the Express make very  pertinent reading, and men of impartial minds will admit the truth  of much of what lie has stated.

She is the second wife  of the emperor, and because she  bore him a son and the first wife  did not, she takes precedence. Her  beauty is said to have been remarkable in her early years, and has not  wholly faded now. As to education  she has received the best China can  give. A native wit and cleverness  supplies what she may lack in book  knowledge. Being, a Manchu woman, she is one of the prevailing  dynasty of China, and therefore  most secure in her position. She  has always been opposed to the  presence of foreigners in China, and  she.is said to-havo encouraged the  "Boxer" outbreaks in her provinces.  BRITAIN'S   QBE AT   NAVY.  According to a recently prepared  table of statistics, the United Kingdom has on hand a program  of expenditure in naval construction involving -$42,000,000 a year .for three  years.    Germany comes next in the  matter of  annual  expenditure for  this object, namely, with  $17,000,-  000 ; then comes France and Russia  with $1:3,000,000 each, and next the  United   States    with    $12,000,000.  Japan is spending $10,000,000  annually.    All the  other  nations are  under five   millions,  Italy  leading  the list.    In total  annual  expenditure for naval purposes the  United  Kingdom heads the list, as a matter  of course,   but   not   many   people  know that she  spends  more than  twice as much as any other power.  The   figures  are:      Great Britain,  $129,000,000;   France,  $02,000,000;  United   States,   $-19,000,000;    Germany, $48,000,00*0; Russia; $45,000,-  000; Italy, $21,000,000 ; Japan, $14,-  000.    Of men, the United Kingdom  has nearly as many as any other  -three nations.    Iu tonnage of war  vessels     built .  since     1890,     we  have     more      than      any     other  three  powers.    The total  tonnage  of our battleships, built and building, is more than that of any three  other nations.    In armored cruisers  .we are a little .behind  France  and  Russia   combined,    but   have, far  more thau any three other nations,  exclusive of ��� France.   In coast and  harbor defence ships  we  head  the  list, with France a good second and  the United States  third.    The  latter, country is the only one that is  building A'essels of- this  class. ." In  protected cruisers, we have more  than, any five  other   nations.    In  .unprotected cruisers and dispatch  "boats, we are first on the list, with  France a good second and Germany  third.   In torpedo boat destroyers,  "we'have'more than all the other  nations of the world put  together.  France,   Russia   and   the    United  States-have   each    more   torpedo  boats   than   we   have,   and   they  stand in the order given.    In naval  vessels .of all classes we have more  than any other three nations, the  others   following    in   order   thus:  France, Russia,  Germany .aiid tbe  United States. - In the-above 'com-  pari sons-thel basis ^is^bhe^toniiage,^  Imperial Bank of Ganada  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO.

To take the ground that I should  propose to use for my experiments,  the district round Brighton, I believe that I could, if 1 could get  them, effectually employ without  confusion, 100,000 armed cyclists.  To illustrate the method of working   these   cycilst   detachments   I  should propose on the August Bank  Holiday, and for the Saturday and  Sunday before it, to   call for  as  many men of the cyclist sections of  the   metropolitan   corps   as   could  give the three days to the work-for  the occupation of the roads leading  directly   from   the   metropolis   to  Brighton.    I should   propose   further to ask as many of the provincial cyclist sections as could join hi  the time to come in on the lines  east and west of Brighton.  '   I should like in the first instance  to assemble the C. O's. of the metropolitan corps that have cyclist sections or companies, propound the  general outlines of the scheme to  them and ascertain how many men  theyjjo'uld get together for August.  The experience gained from them  would probably enable a fair estimate to be made of the number of  cyclists who could be obtained from  other corps.    As regards expense, I  believe it would be sufficient if the  government allowed the ordinary  pay as for volunteers encamped. ���  I think that it would be necessary  as soon as possible,to let it be publicly known that some such scheme  was in contemplation, so as to prevent volunteers from making other  arrangements for'the August Bank  Holiday."  : The proposal has received the approval of the. secretary of state, and  will doubtless, therefore, be tried  next month.          A   TWO-PACED   REFORMER.  The Empress Dowager.  The empress dowager of China is  the one woman in the world who  defies all Europe. She is now about  sixty years old, and for the last  forty years has exerted an all-powerful influence in directing the affairs of China. She was born in  Peking, and is variously   said  to  not numbers.   WAR  CYCLIST  MANOEUVRES.  Under the heading "Cycle Scheme,  June, 1000," a paper written by  major-general Maurice has been  issued from" the Headquarter Office,  Woolwich, giving the outline of. a  proposal to demonstrate the use of  cycles in time of war. ���  "It means," he- says, "that 'the  special facilities, presented by .England for the utilization of a large  body of rifle cyclists for defensive  purposes should be effectively  brought home to the people, and 1  do not think that this could" be  dono except by a practical. illustration. '���'.'"  ���"..  I do not think at present it would  be possible to utilize any but the  organized   cyclists    companies   of|  battalions of volunteers, and these'  represent .a   comparatively   small  number of men.    My idea would,  however, fail to effect its purpose if'  this were regarded as more than a  means of leading up to the utilization of the general cyclists clubs of  the country, if they could be induced to associate a certain amount of  rifle jiractice with their cycling.  The distance from the cqastto  London is very short. "An enemy;  who meant to do any ������ serious mis-;  chief would come with the intention  of striking for London in the shortest possible time. I believe that  from the very large number of  roads available for cycles, and from  the fact that an enemy would be  nearly restricted to roads for movement a check could be more rapidly  placed on his advance by a proper  use of cyclists than by auy other  means.  Kang Yu Wei, the Chinese Reformer, who lately visited British  Columbia, here posed as friendly to  ourselves and to peaceful foreign  residents in China, and here as elsewhere, gladly accepted British protection. If, however, a long passage given in the "North China  Herald," as a translation of part of  ���a book recently written by Kang,  be a correct rendering, there is  more than a little truth in the view  of British officialdom iu north  China, that Kang Yu AVei is really  . a bitter enemy of western men and  western influences. The following  is what Kang Yu Wei has to say  according to the "Herald":  "AVe shall all be driven out of  China. ��� Russia has ejected, the  Jews, 160,000 being driven forth.  Twenty-four hours were allowed  them to get beyond the Russian  boundaries. They could sell neither their lands nor houses, and  could take with them only  a .. little ready money. Not  being allowed to avail themselves  either of train or steamboat, their  aged and their little ones had to be  carried by the strong, and were iii  great fear. Moreover, when ejected  from Russia ^fjiey^Jiad^-gj^jiatiye^  lancTt0 which  Palestine had  fatherland to which to turn. Wo  might attempt to enter some other  country, but its people would eject  us. Even if they admitted us  -among them their rulers would  tax us...  Our race will be destroyed. See  how Russia' has treated Poland.  The Russians banished all the able-  bodied men and allowed only the  old men to remain in the country.  Therefore the Polish race has been  exterminated. At present the women of India are married to foreigners. Everybody knows that  the races of India aro in danger of  being exterminated. . Today the  white races dominate almost the  entire globe. Among the yellow  races, the Chinese only wield any  political influence and rule their  own country.     *  If our country should be conquered and its government controlled by  foreigners, they would assuredly  treat us as they have treated the  Poles.. and ��� the Hindus. AVe, our  children, and our great grandchildren, would be altogether exterminated. Japan fprsees this calamity,  and she therefore retroceded to  China ten of the captured battleships. She fears that our annihilation would jeopardise her independence. China and Japan hold the.  same close relationship to each other  as do the lips to the teeth.  The Chinese race is vast, and our  country is extensiA-e. AVe are 400,-  000,000, and China is larger than the  10 countries of Europe. The precious metals in our mines haAre no  equal in the world. Yet though we  are so numerous, we are despised,  insulted and murdered by other  people. . The Chinese avIio live beyond the seas, numbering at -least  5,000,000, are also daily abused and  insulted by those among' Avhom  they live. Their-'government cannot protect them.  But Avho are the goA'ernment?  China, has no parliament. The  poAver is all vested in one * person.  During the past thirty years, England, France, Russia and Germany,  have all extended their boundaries  and increased tlieir power. China  alone has retrograded. Who has  done this ?  This is all the doing ef the empress���the Avork of one woman who  has profligately, and disgracefully  clung to the old ways." .

At a recent school examination  for girls, was handed in by a girl of  12 : "The boy is not an animal, yet  he can be heard a considerable distance. When a boy hollers- he  opens his big mouth like a frog;  but girls hold their tongue till they  are spoken to, and then they answer  respectable and tell just Iioav ifc was.  A boy thinks himself clever because  he can wade Avhere the Avater is  deep. When the boy grows up he  is called a husband, and then he  stops wading and stays out nights,  but the grown up girl is a widow  and keeps house."   A Tale with an End in View.  About the time of the collapse of  the Confederacy, ex-senator Wig-  fall was crossing the Mississippi,  making his Avay to Texas. He  assumed the character of an ultra-  Union man. On the ferry-boat  with him was a _ Federal officer,  with whom WigfaU got into conversation. The officer confided  to him that he was chasing Wig-  fall. "If I fall in with the traitor,  I'll hang hiin to the first tree."  "Yes," vehemently remarked Wig-  fall, "and I will be pulling at one  end."  ������;  H. D.
