Silvias ready am  tho.m and  Russia  SITUATION JOAIN OMINOUS  Tien-Tsin's Bad Plight.  London, July 12.-8 a.m.: The  Chinese situation again bears a most  ominous aspect, eighteen days ago  ."ir Robert Hart dispatched his last  message declaring that the situation Avas desperate and since then  no Avord has come from the Europeans in Pekin.  According to the Daily Mail's  Shang-Hai correspondent Li Hung  Chang has received an imperial decree ordering his immediate departure for Pekin, presumably to break  tho neAvs of the Pekin tragedy to  t'ni European poAvers, and iu his  usual role of negotiator with  Europe in .'difficult matters, to en-  dfavor to actias mediator and to  avert the A'engeaucc of the poAvers.  To add to the grimness of this  suggestion, all advices from Tien-  Tsin tend to confirm the reports of  ihe perilous condition of the allied  forces and the optimist Chinese ruin rs. -Unless reinforcements  s|u edily reach Tien-Tsin another  disaster may be expected.  The Daily Mail's correspondent,  t el-graphing July 5th, says  situation is about as bad as it  be. J only trust that AA*e shall not  soon Avant relieving ourselves. A  forward nioA'emcufc is impossible.  I'Voni thirty thousand to forty  thousand troops aro Avanted and  there...are only 10,000 here. The  foreign troops are Avorking well to-  ���- gother. But it is inconvenient that  "'"'' there is no supreme commander. In  .cO!iio quarters the feeling is, 'let us  rescue Pekin and then clear out in  favor of Russia.'"  Other Tien-Tsin   correspondents  fay  no  advance  is  possible   uutil  September 11 tli.    Explanations are  being asked by the papers  here of  the tardy action of Japan iu sending troops, since  it is known  that  nd Avilling to  send  ^    ...  .  .    __ i raised< no  objec-  tion'',to her doing so.    It is  hinted  ' that a difficulty arose afc  tho manner in Avhich Japan  AAras to be  re-.  ' couped for her heavy outlay.    Rumors  aro  current that Japan, demanded   the  cession of a  Chinese  " port.  The Russiau papers report that  tlio Boxers are ravaging Manchuria  and havo damaged sixty miles of  the raihvay threatening Telein and  Jviriu, Avhile Port Arthur and New-  Chwang are said to be eudangered.  1'ussia, therefore, has notiDed the  powers of her intention to dispatch  a. large military force to Manchuria.  It appears that the Russian censorship has been suppressing all reference to this matter, aud it  'transpires that 0000 regular troops  have already arrived from Port  Arthur and Amur to protect the  ��� Manchurian railway, and that  oilier troops are noAV on their Avay  to Manchuria.  From Canton comes a report of  large   desertions  from   a   German   Chinese���regiment���at���Kiao���Chou,-  and of a riot between the German  troops and Boxers, many of the latter being killed. Both tit Shang-  Hai and at Canton apprehension  exists that these evidences of a  Avidespread native rebellion indicate the necessity for immediate  measures on the part of the poAA*ers.  " It; is stated that Germany intends  to send to China 15,000 men well  equipped.  Tho Japanese commanders at  Tien-Tsin haA'e sent an urgent ap-  j.oal to hurry reinforcements, as  the allies Avere iu imminent danger  of a general defeat.  All kinds of 9tories; come from  Shang-Hai, Avhich it is impossible  to verify. It is stated that tho  Boxers have murdered the chancellor of the Pekin Uui\'ersity and  -���sixty of the members of his family.  A confidential officer of general  Yung Lu, disguised as a Boxer, is  reported to have crept into prince  Tuan's tent Avhile the prince AA'as  asleep Avith the intention of stabbing him. He was caught by the  sentries, so the story goes, and decapitated on the spot. His head  Avas sent Avith prince Tuan's compliments to Yung Lu, warning him  to beAvare.

London, July J 2.���The Express  this morning publishes a dispatch  from Tien-Tsin, dated Friday last,  A*ia0 Che-Foo, saying: "General  Mahas defeated the allied troops  and reoccupied the Chinese eastern  arsenal after inflicting great loss  upon its defenders. The engagement lasted six hours and was  fought Avith great determination  upon both sides. The Chinese were  eA*entually able to utilize the  effective guns of the fort abutting  on the city walls near the Taoti's  yamen, the allied troops suffering  severely from the lack of heavy  guns and cavalry."

The camp is about sixteen miles from Arrow lake, following Bowman creek, and about the  same distance from Bull Dog tunnel on the Columbia & Western  railway. Men from there say that  a trail could easily be built to the  railway, which would allow access  to "the camp in a day from either  Rossland or Nelson.

St. Eugene Mill a Record Breaker.  Moyio Loader.  Strange as it may seem it is a  fact nevertheless that the St. Eugene concentrator is turning out  more concentrates daily than any  mill iu the Slocan, or even in the  Ooeur d'Alene country in Idaho,  It is simply a marvel and an asfcon-  isher to its owners. Of course the  quality of the ore has much to do  Avith this, as the percentage of  Avaste is very small, but the mill  itself is a record breaker just the  same. During the month of June  the amount of ore ruu through the  mill reached nearly 9000 tons, and  the amount of concentrates turned  out reached 1937 tons.- It is said  that when the new addition is finished the capacity of tho mill Avill  be easily 400 tons per day. An  error was made in last week's  Leader with regard to the number  of men employed at this mine. The  number should have been 242, instead of 185 as stated.  Miscellaneous Mining News.

ElseAvhere, referring to the desire  to protect the legations still unharmed, it says: "If it is impossible  for us to continue ' this protection  let it be represented to the powers  that we must be held blameless, for  the anger of our people grows with  the rising of each sun that sees  more and more foreigners' and  soldiers coining to our land to lay  waste our country and people."

A mere stamp of the  foot and a threatening Avave of the  arms are sufficient to scatter, a band  of 30 imperial soldiers.  "Everyone in China knows that  the government is behind- the Boxers'. Thafc was the sentiment t  heard expressed everywhere. The  government does not openly support the movement; it lets the  Boxers^ go and shuts its eyes.

Bay  There are three factions in Nelson  fighting   the   passage   of   the  money bylaAvs.    The first faction is  made up of the  men who opposed  the  purchase  of  the  electric light  plant; the second faction is made  up  of the men who   are   secretly  Avorking to secure the Bonnington  Falls power plant   people an entrance into Nelson; and the third  .faction is made up of the men  who  oppose    everything    that    mayor  Houston favors.    The purchase  of  the electric light plant was _.���> good  investment;   for   the   city,   as  the  statement   printed   in yesterday's;  Tribune 'clearly, shows.   After de-  ' ducting the charges for interest on  capital invested, sinking fund requirements, and  cost of ��� operation  and maintenance, it makes a profit  of 10 per cent, besides free lighting  for   streets   and    city    buildings.  This       business       is       one.      in  which   the    city   does    nofc   want  a competitor, for municipal ownership means anything, ifc means that  the city shall have a monopoly of  the business in AA'hich ifc engages.  This is not whab the Bonnington  Falls people like. They want to get  an entrance into Nelson, because it  is the only town in Kootenay that  has a steady groAvth; and once an  entrance is gained they Avould begin a cut-throat competition with  the city, iu the hopes of making the  people willing to sell out the city  plant. The third faction is made  up of incurables; men who cannot  be reasoned '���.with.' They are all  good, but misguided, men.  The labor conciliation measure of  postmaster-general^ Mulock avus  framed more in the interest of the  Laurier government than of any  who in the future may become entangled in industrial disputes or  strikes. In moving the bill's second  reading its promoter admitted that  the federal government Avas powerless to conciliate any parties to  labor troubles aa'Iio 'were not Avilling  to be conciliated, bufc he did not  think a trifling consideration of thisc  kind should deter the government  from conciliating the labor party  for election purposes.  The debate upon the second reading of the labor conciliation measure, Avhich Avas introduced .by the  postmaster-general, has not been  altogether useless. It has drawn  from the inostmaster-general the  statement that compulsory conciliation is a matter Avhich comes Avithin  the jurisdiction of the provincial  legislature. This is a statement  Avhich those Avho believe in compulsory legislation should keep in mind.  They noAV knoAV where the goods  which they want are kept.  The newspaper organs of the  Laurier government complain that  the^emergency rationsinvestigation-  has cost the country $15,000. They'  might add that the whitewashing  in connection Avith the investigation  cost the government much more  since ten of its supporters refused  to support the majority report of  the committee.  The appointment of Mr. Gilford  as mine manager of the Hall Mining  & Smelting Company Avill give  people confidence in that, company,  if only he is not to be interfered  Avith from the London office of the  company.

Deuison of Toronto is  given prominence in the London  ���JDuily Mail of .Tune 25th, under the  heading, "A Plain-speaking Canadian: Facts, Figures and Opinions:"  AVhen one considers the enormous armaments and military pre-.  p irations of all the great nations���  nnd see the extraordinary efforts  that are being made in many of  them to increase their naval power,  one cannot help wondering Avhat is  the ultimate object.  The German emperor made a  very, significant speech on last New  Year's day to his generals, in Avhich  ho said: "The navy must be equal  to the army, then I shall be able to  procure for Germany the i)Utce  among foreign nations which she  .has not yet obtained." France and  Hussia are also devoting earnest  11)ought to the same question.  Our empire must not shut its  eyes to all - this. No one can , feel  cci'tain that peace Avill continue,  nnd it is the duty of every Englishman, as Avell as every colonist, to  consider carefully what can be  done to protect our empire iu case  Avar should unfortunately break  o-it.^  Rifle clubs would be an important  element of strength iu case of invasion : but if Ave lost the command  of the sea there, would be no neces-  siiy for an enemy to invade us, for  if. they simply cut off all supplies c  uV food they could under present  conditions starve the United King-  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, IJ. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  dom into surrender in six or eight  months.  In 1781 a sudden combination of  the French, Dutch and Spanish  fleets enabled them to secure .temporary command of tho sea, which  caused the surrender of lord Corn-  wnllis and the loss of the American  colonies. In another AA'ar the man  directing the navy might not be  infallible, and the fortune of war  might for a time be against us.  Should Ave then be in a position to  hold on and fight on until the empire got a chance to pull itself together again ? There is only ono  sure way for the mother country to  make certain of defending her freedom and independence as a nation,  and that is to grow on her oavii soil  as much food as it is capable of  producing. It is folly for a great  and wealthy nation to be dependent  upon possible enemies for the food  to feed her people. No nation can  be independent unless self-de-  rpendent.  Lord Rosebery said at the beginning of the war that "we should  muddle through this war somehow."  He was counting on tho dogged  obstinacy of a race" that never  kuoAvs when it is beaten,- but fights  on and on until it succeeds. This  quality of persistent endurance,  however, cannot overcome starvation except for a few days only���it  'AA'ill be at once admitted that a nation could not muddle through  starvation.  It must not be forgotten that the  complete aud absolute command of  the sea does not guard against loss  of the food '''supply, for an embargo  by the tAvo great food exporting  countries would necessarily be followed by an embargo in all food  importing countries at once, and in  all exporting countries as soon as  their surplus was exported. There  are very feAV nations that Avould  allow their people to starve in order  that they might give us food. In  fact, it is certain that there are  none.

In view of all the dangers that  the future may bring forth, the  resources of the whole empireshould  be organized for the common defense. An imperial  should be called soon  conference  to consider  how far we can ��all agree to work  together, aud a small duty should  be levied at every port, in every  part of the whole empire, on all  foreign products, to raise a fund  for imperial defence. This would  provide the necessary means,AA'ould  give mutual trade benefits that  would bind all together, and would  tend to increase the production of  everything the empire needs upon  its own soil.  There is a deep-rooted prejudice  in the minds of some against raising revenue by tariffs.   It is urged  that it destroys trade and is ruinous to the country that adopts it.  England has adopted  one policy,  and her exports have remained at a  standstill practically for the last  thirty years, in spite of the fact  that she has opened up immense  new territories during that time,  AA'hich should have largely increased  her trade.      Other   nations,   who  have not been afraid of levying duties, and whose ruin has been for  years predicted, go on prospering  and increasing their trade marvellously.   For example, the   United  Kingdom's   exports  in   1870 were  ��244,000,000,  in 1899  ��255,400,000,  and a diagram published by the  Commercial Intelligence on March  10tli last shows that during the intervening years the average  was  beloAV both the above figures.   Germany and the United States have  adopted a   different   fiscal policy,  and their exports have largely increased,  Germany's in 1872 being  ��116,000,000, in 1899 207,580,000, or  almost double.   The exports of the  United States rose from -��78,000,000  in 1870 to ��255,000,000 in 1899, and  these experiences Avere under systems    which    theorists    predicted  would certainly bring ruin   upon  them.

If the empire can increase her  OAvn internal food supply, provide  funds for imperial defences, and  bind all parts together by mutual  trade benefits simply by raising  AA*ar taxes by duties, no trade theories Avhich in other countries have  been proved to be fallacies should  [be alloAved to stand in the Avay.  BANK    AMALGAMATION    DEAL.  Toronto Ololic.  An important amalgamation of  banking interests was made public  yesterday, when it became knoAvn  that the Canadian bank of Commerce had absorbed the Bank of  British Columbia. The immediate  object of the union is to unite the  efforts of the two institutions for  the development of a great Avestern  business in connection with the  filling up of the greater Canada.  The Bank of British Columbia was  established before confederation,  was the pioneer bank on the coast,  and controls the largest business in  that province. Its head office is in  London, England, and.it is understood that the directors had concluded that more money could be  made under one Canadian management.  By the terms arranged, which are  subject to the approval of the  shareholders of both banks, the  Canadian Bank of Commerce will  assume the liabilities of the selling  bank, and give in exchange for the  surplus over liabilities, shares in the  Canadian Bank of Commerce,  amounting to $2,000,000, together  Avith the sum of $312,000 in cash.  The paid-up capital of the Bank of  British Columbia is ��000,000 sterling, with a reserve fund of ��100,-  000. Its total liabilities are ��3,090,-  731, including a balance at credit of  profit and loss account of ��20,040 to  equal the assets. "Ytflien the amalgamation is completed the Bank of  Commerce will have deposits  amounting to nearly $40,000,000,  and nearly severity offices, of which  tAA'enty will be on the Pacific coast  between Daavsoii and San Francisco,  inclusive. The capital Avill be $8,-  000,000, aud the rest or reserve fund  at least $2,000,000.  An exceptional circumstance in  connection Avith the amalgamation  is that the two institutions haA'e at  present branches in common in only  one place, Vancouver, where, in  fact, the Bank of Commerce has  not yet built, so that there will be  no duplication or --waste,.' whatever.  The directors of the Bank of British - Columbia are as follows: sir  Robert Gillespie,': chairman; Guy  Oswald-Smith, H; J. Gardiner, T. G.  Gillespie and W. C. Ward, the latter  being also the superintendent of the  branches of the bank. The directors of the Bank of British Columbia are called to meet on July 25th,  and those of the Bank of Commerce  on August 20th. It is probable  that a London agency of the Bank  of Commerce will be constituted  out of the board of the Bank of  British Columbia.      ,  general of Ganada. When lord  Minto stopped fishing salmon long  .enough to sign the doom of T. R.  !McInnes, did he think that he was  creating a precedent AA'hich might  make trouble for him or his successors ? It is not beyond the  bounds of possibility that a majority of the members of the Dominion  parliament might sign a petition  for the removal of lord Minto. It  is certain that if curses Avere autographs, there is scarcely a Liberal  representative or senator at Ottawa  who has not gone on record against  the governor-general. All that is  hidden cannot be revealed or the  country might realize that lord  Minto has committed faults similar  to those for which Hon. T. R. Mclnnes is suffering, and the unpopularity of, Mr. Mclnnes in British  Columbia could not possibly exceed  the uupopularity of lord Minto with  the Liberals at Ottawa at the opening of the present session.

Bullock-Webster, chief of  provincial police, was called to Fernie yesterday on official business.  Charles E. Beasley left yesterday  to spend a month in Toronto.  The local militia officers received  a message tbe other day from headquarters asking'them to secure an  affidavit as to the age of Patterson  who went to South Africa with the  first contingent. It is thought that  Patterson is about to secure a commission in the imperial service, for  which he was recommended by lord  Roberts.  Baverstock, the miner who was  hurt on .Monday at the Silver Hill  mine- is getting along nicely at the  Crickmay hospital. One eye will  be entirely restored and the other  may be also saved by an operation.  The staff at the C. P.

Paul, Minneapolis, elocutionist and exponent of  Delsarte, disappointed a large  audieuce at the Methodist .church  last night. Au entertainer was expected instead of wliich Miss Tillotson inflicted prosy lectures on the  audience much to the disgust of the  ladies under whose auspices she  appeared. A redeeming feature of  the entertainment were solos by  mesdames Thurman 'and Caldwell  and Messrs. Lennox and Thompson.  The   vocalists   were   in    excellent  voice'aTrd^eliglvtM^tireirlreafeTs^  The ClaraMahres Company closed  a successful engagement at the  opera house yesterday evening with  "Brown's in Town." The company  made an excellent impression while  here,.and local theatre-goers hope  that they may soon return.  The Trebelli Concert.  As further evidence of the manner in whicli Mile. Antoinette Trebelli and M. Eugene Berns captured  the hearts of the people of the  Coast, the following from tlio Vancouver Province of last Saturday is  reproduced: "Ve.spirits of sweet  sound ! What a feast did Mile.  Antoinette Trebelli and M. Eugene  Berns afford us ? The appetite of  those present was almost insatiable  ���how the charming manner of  mademoiselle appealed to us!  Such grace; so wonderful an  exposition of the vocal art I  We haA'e had Scalchi, Albani, Nevada, madame Johnson-Bishop, but  none of. these have pleased so much  as Trebelli. To hear her sing with  such purity, flexibility and sympathetic expression simply enchants."  Mile. Trebelli and M.' Berns will  appear at the Nelson opera house  next Monday eveniug. The plan of  the house will be opened ou Friday  morning, and seats will be on sale  at 11 o'clock.   - Conqueror "Went Ashore.  .Portland, July 11.���The British  third-class battleship Conqueror  went ashore this morning on the  Shambles banks while proceeding  to the naval mauoauvres. She was  floated and proceeded to this port.  BASEBALL   AND  FOOTBALL  Notes on Athletics.  Tho Stanford University ball  team arrives in Nelson tomorrow  evening, and their appearance ou  the diamond here will be one of the  leading features'of the" ball season.  The man the Nelson athletes will  be the most eager to see will be  little Chet Murphy, Stanford's most  famous athlete. No man has ever  entered Stanford who has reached  the same height of athletic fame as  has Murphy. Whether on the golf  links or the gridiron, the tennis  court or the baseball diamond, he is  at home. He is the greatest running quarterback the western football field has ever known aud the  champion golfer of his college. He  is not so strong at baseball as is  Lougheed, but "he covers much  gi mind, mid once on first base it  ti; --os a good catcher to head him  o!/ <..t second. .Edwards, at second,  is ri^e o^ly ���undergraduate .on the  tc���!���!, with thevexcepiion of: Freer  ��� man, who is still a sub-freshman  from the Oakland high school and  has played for two years on the  college teanii He is the most brilliant player on occasions with the  team. He will make phenomenal  stops at times and cut off balls that  look like sure hits, while at other  times he will, let easy balls pass.  The rest of the team, Quigley, Mc-  Ewiug and. Freeman, are splendid  players, but not as well known as  the others. Freeman is a sub-  freshman, entering Stanford next  year, while Quigley is a member of  the team from the Reliance club.  ESTABLISHED. 1892  The football club leaves this  morning for Slocan City where  they are to compete in a tournament for gold medals. The opposing teams eriteYed are Sandon, Silverton and Slocan, the most dangerous being; Silverton. Nelson  will lack Archibald, who is one of  the strongest -defence men. He is  unable to leave liis business.  Fisher will accompany the team  aud play back,.although.he is suffering from fa* broken, collar-bone.  The clavicle was not broken clean  across, however, and Fisher has determined to'take* chances.  A number, of the baseball men  turned out.for. practice on the recreation grounds last night and  spent an hour practicing in the  field. * The football players also  worked outJpr a"time to loosen up  for today's game. .  British Troops * For China.  London, July 11.���It was rumored iu service aud parliamentary  circles this afternoon that the British government was preparing to  send 100,000 Indian troops to China  in the autumn. ��� A foreign oflice  official said to a representative of.  the Associated Press that no such  number of : men could possibly  be spared from- India, nor was it  possible for Great Britain to add  to her present responsibility by  sending out such, a force whenever  secured.      However, he added, .it  Notice to Union Men.  The grievance committee of  the Trades; and Labor Council  have declared the Contractors  Lister and Kerr to be on the  unfair list, and all union men  and=sympathizers=are-=requested=  to bear this in mind.

Frequent acts of lawlessness iu  Cape Nome have caused the authorities to proclaim martial law, the  municipal government beiug unable to cope with'.the. situation.  The London career.of William  Waldorf Astor, whose insulting  treatment of captain sir Archibald  Milne was chronicled in a recent  issue, has come to a sudden close.  He was cut by the prince of Wales,  and has goue to Germany, cancelling all his engagements. '������������  The Western Loan & Trust Company of Montreal is in financial  difficulties. The auditor's report  shows, however, that with careful  management the company may  pull through without serious loss to  the shareholders.  The barbers of YOnkers.N. Y.,are  compelled to 'disinfect; all the tools  of tlieir trade with antiseptics every  time they are used.  The whirlpool rapids below Niagara falls have been successfully  shot by a man named captain Nis-  sen, alias P. M. Bowser, in a boat of  his own construction.  J. C.. Drewry, managing director  of the Canadian Goldfields Syndicate, is making it warm for the  civic authorities of- Montreal in.the  matter of the provision made for  small-pox patients during the recent outbreak.
