NELSON:  FRIDAY MORNING JULY 20 J 900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  \1  LEGISLATURE  IN   SESSION  Governor's Message Delivered.  Victoria, July 19���[Special to  The Tribune].���The legislative  assembly convened today. Other  than electing J. P. Booth of' North  Victoria speaker, the only business  transacted was the reading of lieutenant-governor Joly's message.  Four seats wero not occupied,  namely, the two from Cassiar, and  the two from the Slocan and Nelson ridings of West Kootenay.  After the delivery of the lieutenant-governor's message, an adjournment was taken till Monday. The  message was as follows:'  ''Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of  _^ tho Legislative Assembly: It aff-  Y ords me great pleasure to meet you  at this the first session of the ninth  parliament of British Columbia.  This beiug the ��� earliest occasion  since my accession to office I now  avail myself of this opportunity to  express my sincere thanks of the  kind welcome reived in British Columbia. I regret the Empire is  still at war in South Africa, which  is now, happily,'nearing a successful termination, and also that the  .foreign relations have been still  further complicated by the recent  outbreak in Chiua.  "It has been a circumstance of the  deepest significance that the colonies have given such loyal support  to the mother country in her hour  of trial. It isrparticularlya matter  of pride to her majesty's subjects  in this Dominion that the response  to the call for aid has been general  and voluntary throughout all the  provinces, and conspicuously so in  British Columbia, and that several  ��� Canadian contingents, have earned  the warmest praise of the military-  authorities, for their valor and  effective work iu action.  " I am pleased to know that the  industries of the province are in a  ' j-f-yrly prosperous ^ condition, notwithstanding the temporary, wave"  of depression. Metalliferous mining,  wliich was more particularly  affected, is resuming more .normal  'conditions of activity, and I>anticipate at largely increased*; output  during' the".' present year."1'''Coal'  '' mining in East Kootenay and on  Vancouver Island is on a prosperous  basis, the output for the past year  exceeding that of any other year.  Lumbering is in a prosperous condition and the foreign demand continues.  " Agriculture, including fruit  growing, dairying, stock raising and  other branches is making steady  progress with prospects of an  ultimate great* development. The  fisheries last year were successfully  prosecuted, but it is yet too early in  the session to prophesy the results  of the present year's operations.  "I observe that since the correspondence between the government  of British Columbia and the federal  and imperial government relative to  Asiatic immigration has beeu pub-  _^ lished,_a^large_influx__of_ Japanese.  has taken place. It is the intention  of my government to make strong  representations to the authorities  at Ottawa and in Great Britain  with a view to the protection of the  laboring classes against the consequences of what threatens to be  an alarming increase in the Japanese population.  "The extensivo requirements of  the province in respect to mining  development involve the carrying  out  of a vigorous policy of road  t building, and my government will  ���jVAOvkle for surveys and will report  (i\]_oii various sections requiring at-  '-i'eutioii.

" It is the iutention of my government to provide in the estimates a  sum to place the office of agent-  general on a more satisfactory  basis.  " The estimates of receipts and  expenditure, which will be prepared  with due regard to economy and  the requirements of the province  will be submitted at an early date.  A vote ou expenditure is necessary  to carry on the business of the  government until the estimates can  be passed which will be immediately  asked for. I now leave you to  your' deliberations, which T. ,pr'ay  may be attended by the blessings of  Providence and that the result of  your labors may redound to your  credit and the prosperity of the  province."  There was a caucus of the Martin faction tonight. Among others  who attended was W. W. B.  Mclnnes. Charles Munro of' Chilliwack was invited but declined to  attend.     ,  GERMAN PRESS ON CHINA  DJ��  uiO'.'v  the manufac-  .,,,���,   .....    ._ ..._ Columbia and  ;Vy;'���* ote with pleasure the preparations  ;;'vi ./hat are being made and the sites  y'i.'iow arranged  for   the   extensive  ^prosecution of   this important in-  '"Vjdustry... . :  ';    "My government will ask an ap-  \'propriation"for defrayiug the expenses of a commission to inquire  into the working of the mining acts  with a view of introducing legislation with the purpose of amending  -ihe acts next session.

Berlin, July 19.���The Berlin  Post this evening' contains an- article, evidently inspired, giving the  views of the German foreign officers  regarding the withdrawal from the  Chinese minister in Berlin of the  right to use the telegraph for secret  messages. The article admits that  the step is unprecedented, but declares that it -was rendered necessary by the "abnormal relations between Germany and China."  "The regular troops," the article  says, "are ;in the field against .the  German troops.; It also remains-unknown whether the ���, government  from which the Chinese"-minister  was accredited s'till/exists." Since  the status in China is not" absolutely  clear, and-since the news given but  by the Chinese-minister has not always been^confirmed by facts. It  is'impossible to-permit'*hinvlo-com-  ,municate Tfreely with ,his* govern-,  ment under the fiction that there  is no war."  " The possibility must ever be  kept in mind," the Kreuze Zeitung'  says, "that the' powers may dis-1  agree and that each will withdraw  to its own sphere of influence. At  any rate it is now certain that the  war will last 'for a long time and  the present troops in the field are  insufficient. '' Doubtless if the  United States government had  already created a military basis in  China, Washington would not  make a claim for a separate sphere  of influence.  " If imperialism succeeds at the  forthcoming presidential elections  a strong, expansion policy toward  China is to be expected from the  United States. In any event, in  orderJ;o_niakeJ-heiiunfiuence_fert-in  tho coming reorganization bf the  Chinese government, each power  will probably establish further  points of support in China."  Klondikers Waste Gold.  To demonstrate that the Klondike is rich, the Sun tells how a  visitor took $800 out of waste  dump. In its issue of July 3 it  says: " William M. Robinson of  Phoenix, Arizona, came in over the  ico last March ou a visit to his  brother-in-law, Sam Stanley, 26  Eldorado. Mr. Robinson considered  there was too much waste in mining in the Klondike, so Mr. Stanley,  pointing to a waste dump, told him  to go to work and, show what he  could do. Iii one month Mr. Robinson had cleaned up $800 from the  dump. When he left on; tbe Gold  Star three weeks ago he was more  than ever impressed with the belief that a great deal of gold was  wasted in the clean-ups."  Five Thousand Men a Day.  Montreal, July 19.���It is understood that the C. P. R. his intimated to the admiralty authorities in  London that it is prepared totrans-  port 5000 troops daily from Quebec  to Vancouver if emergency should  arise requiring their presence in  China. The accommodation provided the men will be of the best  description andthey will be'.hurried  across the continent in imperial  limited time. The imperial authorities intend to make Esquimalt a  temporary base of supplies for any  troops that may be sent across, and  it is likely that Victoria will be the  point of embarkation for troops.  Of American Politics.  Washington,  [July   19. ���Some  amusement   has   been   created   in  philosophical minds in this country  by the  recent  declaration of the  Democratic national convention at  Kansas City that it "condemns the  ill-concealed    Republican   alliance  with England" and "views with indignation" various items in recent  English history.   The amusement is  due jjo the fact that Great Britain  is invariably the bogie man of one  one party or the other in the United  States.   Now it is the , Democrats  who are twisting the lion's tail, but'  a few years ago it was the Republicans who were spending their energy  in that pleasing sport.   In the'campaign " of   1888   when    president  Cleveland was making his canvass  for re-election, a considerable popular frenzy was aroused against that  gentleman   because of   an alleged  purpose  to   turn    this    country's  markets and industries over to England.'  The ."paramount  issue"   of  that campaign was the tariff.    The  republicans assumed to be terrified  by the dominance of the Cobden  club of London, in Mr.  Cleveland's  policies, and foresaw an appalling  blight threatening the nation, to be  averted only by a republican victory. , As a verification of the danger   came   the "Murchison  letter"  and its' reply.    A   letter   signed  " Murchison"   was   sent    to   lord  Sackville-West,   the   British] minister    at    Washington,   purporting   to   be   a   query of a former  Euglishman ' who  had   become   a  naturalized citizen of the United  States, and who, in behalf of himself, and others, wanted to know  from the   British  minister which  candidate was the more acceptable  to Great Britain. ' Lord Sackville-  West fell into the trap and replied  ,that -Mr. "Cleveland's policies were  .more in line with the best interests  of England than those of 'Mr. Harrison.   Letter and reply were published as an evidence that Cleveland was England's candidate, and  that the. movement for lower im-,  port duties' was a machination of  the Cobden Club.   Mr. .Cleveland  could not face the clamor that ensued; and lord - Sackville-West was  given his passports.   This brand of  campaign thunder has now changed  hands.  - As a matter of fact, few genuine  Americans take ,any particular  stock in the recurrent outcry, which  is gotten up chiefly for' the benefit  of foreign voters, particularly the,  . Irish. The feelings of real Americans are well set, forth by Mr. H.  B. Jackson, who lives in Buffalo,  just across the Canadian border,  and who is in this eity just now.  He says : " I believe the English  people are sincere in their professions of friendship for Americans.  I have just come from a three  months- business ti'ip through  ^England, and everywhere I found  a most remarkable interest in  -America���and���all^things-American. On numerous occasions  I had evidence of cordial  good will, the genuineness of  which was not to be doubted. Governments are often hypocritical in  their pretensions, but a people seldom are, and the people of England  want to be friends. The English  government is a government at all  times for English interests, and I  believe its present professions of  great friendship spring from selfish  motives, but I do not believe there  is any selfishness in the friendship  the people of England have for us.  I don't think I am an Anglomaniac,  but ��� I believe that; friendship between the two great branches of  the Anglo-Saxon race is a natural  and proper thing, and; even how I  am sure it has grown so ��� great that  war between the two nations is forever impossible."  Telegraph Line to' Dawson.  Victoria, July 19.���J. B. Charleson, superintendent of the Dominion public works department for  the Yukon Territory, is a guest at:  the Driard, with his daughter. Mr.  Charleson arrived from Daws on a  few days ago. He says the telegraph construction party which  started from, Ashcroft is within 20  miles of Hazelton, having completed 270 miles of the line. The  party which started from Atlin  reached Telegraph Creek on Saturday night, and it is expected that  the two parties will meet between  the SkeenaandStikine on September  15. Telegrams,' however, *�� will be  accepted for Dawson before that  time and transferred across the  breach by messengers. Mr. Charles-<  ton is here to arrange for the transportation of the" supplies for the  construction parties to Hazelton.  He will Isave.in a few clays for Ashcroft to go over the line. When  this work is completed, the construction of a line to the United  States boundary below Dawson will  be commenced to connect with the  American line from the mouth of  the Yukon. Public buildings  also to be erected.  LATEST NEWS FROM CHINA  are  SPORTS OF VARIOUS KINDS  ���i        Notes on Athletics.  Manager Vanstone, of the lacrosse  club, arranged yesterday for the  use of the recreation grounds on  August 4th aiid 5th. A commifriica-  tion was.then forwarded to the  Medicine Hat*team advising them  of the Nelson ^Club's offer, and the  date ,'selectedi- -A , reply-.accepting  the invitation is expected by the  first mail.  All the baseball players with the  exception of George Partridge  turned out for practice last night,  and the team worked hard for an  hour,. The ,home nine is in good  shape for the games with Spokane  tomorrow and Sunday.' The visi-,  tors will include Kelly, the star  pitcher who came north with Stanford- and, possibly, Lougheed, who  caught.for Stanford"last Saturday.  Two of the fastest games of the  season~are' anticipated.  - A match between the first and  second football teams . may be  arranged for Monday night. The  members of the club believe that  playing-the "-'two' teams intact,  against each other-"will go further  towards developing team play than  any number of scratch games, hence  the" arrangement. The-two-elevens  are fairly well matched,, and Monday night's game will be well worth  seeing.   ' *���. ���r1'      / '   '   '. .  "Secretary MacAdam,of the football club received a reply yesterday  from R. M. Knox; secretary of the  Kaslo-club," declining the invitation  to - play * here- tomorrow, "on ' the  ground that several of Kaslo's best  men are 'working iii" the' hills and  cannot be reached, on, short notice.

Waterman received a,  letter from the -manager of the  Cranbrook-local team asking for a  game here at an early date, lt was  further stated that Cranbrook had  a winning "team and a big wad to  back the nine. Several ex-league  men are said to be playing with the  Cranbrook outfit. >  The Nelson Typographical Union  numbers among its members some  hot ball playei'3, who are quite confident of their ability to shut out  any team in the city.

Alleged Russian Outrages.  London, July 20, 4 a. m.���"The  Washington idea of sending Mr.  Rockhill to China," says the Standard, editorially this morning, " is  an excellent one, and might advantageously be imitated by the British  and other governments." The  Standard then proceeds to comment  upon the great ignorance prevalent  in Europe not only of recent events  but of Chinese affairs generally.  The cabinet council- convened by  lord Salisbury came a day earlier  than usual, and it'is expected that  it will be followed by a statement  in Parliament, throwing light upon  the situation. <=  The Chinese assertions that the  members of the foreign legations  are safe have been so often repeated that they are again beginning to  raise hopes in some quarters. According to the Daily Telegraph's St.  Petersburg correspondent, however,  the Russian government is already  in possession of definite news that  the foreigners in Pekin were massacred on July 6.  The Japanese correspondents  charge the Russian soldiers with  barbarity towards the Chinese.  They declare that the Pei Ho is full  of corpses of women and children,  and that the Russians loaded 300  .bodies on the junk and burned  them. }"' '" ���  Shang-Hai reports that three  mission stations on Po Yang lake  have been destroyed, but it is believed the missionaries escaped.  All the missionaries at She-Ho,  Kerin and Kuan Chang Tzu in  Chinese Manchuria have arrived in  safety at Vladivostock. It' is * rumored that Yu Lu; the1 missing  .viceroy of the province of Chi Li,  lias committed suicide. ���*  Various conflicting stories are  published of the manner of general  Nieh's death. -It,is said that when'  the allies entered' the native city of  Tien-Tsin they found Chinese dead  piled breast high," and it "was feared  this would result in an outbreak of  pestilence.' Sixteen of the captured"  guns are quite modern weapons.  -The Shang-Hai correspondent to'  the Times'expresses 'doubt whether'  the southern viceroys will be' able  to withstand the pressure of the  provincial officials to join the anti-  foreign movement. He ��� thinks  already their are signs of wavering -  on the part of the viceroy of  Nankin, Ciu Kun Yih, and says:  "It is admitted at Nankin that  Liu's authority is now insufficient  to' guarantee - the maintenance of  law and order north of the river,  ' since the consuls at the Yang Tse  ports-are arranging for the departure of women and children. It is  inevitable that the mandarins as a  body should sympathize with  Prince Tuan's movements."  This correspondent confirms the  statement of the correspondent of  the Daily Express regarding the  _indignation_caused_by_the^British=  reception of Li Hung Chang at  Hong Kong.- He says it is interpreted by the natives as weakness  on the part of the allies, and he  asks why Li Hung Chang could not  have been detained until information had been received from Pekin.  According to the Canton correspondent of the Daily Telegraph six  Chinese soldiers have been beheaded  for assaulting an American medical  missionary.  The Russians, according to the  latest news from St. Petersburg,  have completely defeated the Chinese, and have occupied Blagovetchensk, the capital ot the Amur  government, with a large force.  Since general Gribovoski, chief of  staff at Port Arthur, has taken  over the supreme command in  Manchuria, reinforcements have  been rapidly pushed up and the  general situation has been greatly  improved. The Russian minister  of the interior has issued a, notice  that the Siberian raihvay is closed  to private traffic. There is little  doubt that the Russian authorities  were not prepared for such an organized movement iu Manchuria,  but they have taken brisk measures and believe that China will  soon be too much preoccupied with  military operations round Pekin to  conduct serious operations in the  north.  The Daily Mail's Shang-Hai correspondent says: "Advices from  Vladivostock state that the Chinese  invasion of eastern Siberia has  stopped the Russian advance from  the north of Pekin.  Berlin telegrams dwell upon the  immense German interests in South  easternjSiberia.   They say that the  many German merchants, the numerous German employes, and the  immense stores of merchandise belonging to Germans in that territory, will- compel Germany to cooperate with Russia in resisting the  Chinese.  General sir Arthur Hower Palmer,  commander-in-chief in India, said in  the course of an interview in Simla  yesterday that no more British  troops could be sent from India to  China unless they could be replaced  from South Africa.  URGENT APPEAL FOR HELP  ���m____m_____________- '*"  Message from Pekin..  Washington, July 19. ���The  Japanese legation here has made  public the, latest communication  received by it from baron Nissi, the  Japanese minister to Pekin. This  telegram was received today at the  legation from the Japanese minister  of foreign affairs and is important  because of the dates given. The  telegram was dated July 13 by the  Japanese consul at Che-Foo, and is  as follows:  "I received at 10 a. m. onthe 12th  a despatch from baron Nissi dated  Pekin, June 29. The letter was  brought by a* special': messenger���a*.  Chinaman���who left Pekin on July  1 and managed to make the journey  with great difficulty. The substance  of the letter is as follows: "'V-*.-  " ' The situation at 'Pekin is  extremely critical. The foreign  legations are "surrounded ' on all  sides by Chinese soldiers and bombarded day and night. The mem:  bers of the legations, .the guards  and residents, are1 resisting to the  utmost but the overwhelming numbers of the enemy make opposition,  hopeless ; our ammunition is being  exhausted, and our lives are in such  'danger that we may; be massacred  at ,any/ moment; .

London, July 20.���The Shang-  Hai correspondent of the Daily Express says:  "Intense indignation is felt here  at the honors which the British in  -IIong-=Koug^have���accorded- to~ Li"  Hung Chang, who is looked upon in  Shang-Hai as the originator of the  whole fiendish anti-foreign plot.  "A Chinese merchant who has  just arrived from Pekin gives horrible details of the massacre. He  says he saw European women  hauled in the streets by shrieking  Boxers, who stripped them and  hacked them to pieces. Their dissevered limbs were tossed to  the crowd, and carried off with  howls of triumph. Some were  already dead, having been shot by  the foreign civilians. He says he  saw Chinese soldiers carrying the  bodies ��of white children aloft on  their spears, while their companions  shot at the bodies. He gives other  details'too horrible to be particularized here.  "It seems the Boxer leaders had  organized a plan, including the  offering of rewards and loot, for the  annihilation of Europeans throughout China, and that prince Tuan's  generals have been em phasing the  opportunity the soldiers have had  of seizing the bodies of white  women."

The Whitewater ���  mine is of course the chief working  property, but there is also much  activity at the Sunset and the  Hazel, while less known claims are  having assessment work done upon  them. A bunk house is being erected at the Whitewater. At the  Sunset, W. H.

W. Gesner Allen. Dead.  The body of W. Gesner Allen has  been found over in the Similkameen  country. It is supposed that he  committed suicide, as he has been  deranged for a year or more. W.  Gesner Allen came to Nelson iu  March, 1890, along with Charles H.  Ink and John Houston, and together  they started the Miner newspaper.  He sold his interest the following  year, and for awhile was engaged  in business with E.H. Applewaite,  under the firm name of Applewaite,  Allen & Co. Afterwards he returned to his old honie in England  where he remained for a year. Returning to Canada, he attended Mc-  Gill college for awhile, then went to  California. About two years ago  he arrived in Rossland. When in  Nelson Allan was looked upon as a  promising young man. He was well  educated, had great application,  was always willing to help friends  in distress, and-it Avas predicted  that he would make a name for  himself.   But it was not to be.

TflE governor's message to the  [-? .-legislative "assembly   means   little  other than that the estimates will  \;.\ be passed ind an attempt made to  '-appoint a commission to reopen, the  -"'mining soies.that are now in a fair'  t-Tvay of loing healed.    What the'  '- province reeds most is a legislative  - assembly-: hat will keep their hands'  off the mi ing industry, for. if there  /is one tlnng the majority*of-the  ''members know absolutely nothing  about, it i ��� the business of mining;  ;yet, nearly every one of the mem-  ibers "from districts in which mining  is not' tbe pursuit of the  people  living thet ein is anxious to have a  whack at framing laws that might  well.be termed, "Acts to Discourage  People fi*-m Undertaking   Mining  ' Ventures."    If - premier   Dunsmuir  Tias horse sense, he will not make"  any attempt at this session to carry  out the mining commission part of  the prognunme announced from the  throne by lieutenant-governor Joly.  Were ii.announced by authority  that then- would be no changes in  the laws i elating to mining during  the next four years, British Columbia would be immensely the gainer.  What the province wants is stability, and tliere can be no stability  as long as the laws relating to mining are being continually tinkered  with���and the worstpossible tinker-  ers would be a mining commission.  Instead   of tinkering with the  mining lau-s and announcing an intention of appointing a commission  ' that will only keep people" in continued  suspense,  the government  * will   be   wise   to ��� announce  that  liberal gra uts will be made at all  times     towards   building    wagon  roads to mines, and trails to prospects   whose   owners are working  them   as   if they meant business.  ' There should be no doubt as to the  government's policy on this ques-,  tion.    Two    hundred    and   fifty  thousand dollars spent on wagon  roads and trails in the mining districts wit Inn a year will do more  to  advertise   the   advantages  Hard on Archie.  New Denver Ledge.  A jolly party from Nelson visited  the hotel at the Outlet a short time  ago. After spending the nighjj  drawing to immature flushes and  looking wise they went fishing.  One of them, a noble young lawyer,  fell out of the boat and drowned  his $50 fishing rod. The balance of  the party rushed to his rescue, and  by the time all were again on shore,  the lake staggered as though^ it  were jagged. The subsequent  events consisted of1 wet clothes  hanging over a cook stove, while a  mad Chinaman sang this refrain:.  "Nelsons* man, dam . foolee, come  fishee, fall in lakee, hang him clothes  ovei stove, dlip in soup, boalders all  get dlunk. Gee, Clist! me jump em-  job and go to Ottawa, savey ?"    ���  Windy Eossland.  i" At"3 o'clock,yesterday morning'  the wind commenced to blow from  the southwest very strongly and at  3:15 it had mounted to the .proportion of"' a gale, says ��� the Rossland  Miner. It was not a steady wind,  but came in powerful gusts- and  rocked buildings on their - foundations and threatened to blow them  over. The grand stand at the baseball grounds received the, full force  of the, gale, and a large section of it  was blown over. Carpenters will  at once be put '. to work and the  stand made more' substantial than  ever* ' ;   "    "*  Cotton Exports Affected.  Philadelphia, Pa., July 19.���As  a consequence of the * situation in  .China, all exports to that country  .of -American cotton . goods, principally heavy sheeting and drills,  have practically ceased. This statement was vouched for today by  Frederick Bailey of ��� the firm ' of  Joshua L. "Bailey & Co., one of the  largest drygoods commission houses  in this city. Mr. Bailey states that  .the mills of this country annually  export about $20,000,000 in cotton goods of the foregoing description to China alone, and  that those most likely to be affected  by the sudden stoppage of shipments are located principally in the  south. !lt is notbelieved they Avill  be compelled to close, but instead,  -much-of-the-trade-can^be-diverted-  to the Philippines, Cuba and Porto  Rico, and a portion of the goods  can be sent north and there transformed by the mills in that section.  ________ (  Nothing but Tragedies.  Victoria, July 19.���A letter received from Cassiar tells of the  death from starvation at Francis  lake of a prospector named Wyuck,'  of Los Angeles, California. His  partner, A. L. Dominck, lived on the  flesh of martens until he reached  Fort Francis. A. E. Engel, storekeeper at Fort Francis, was accidentally shot by his 14-year-old  son.' Engel is the man who saved'  the lives of so many men who were;  stranded on the - Edmonton trail  during the Klondike rush.' News.  has also been received that Indians  are still pursuing the McTavish  family. A number of whom were;  killed last winter for alleged witch-!  craft.    '������       ���"���.."������    .: ������   \ '- I  Money for a Boundary Company,   i  Rossland,  July  18.���News has  been  received  by  Hector McRae;  that   at - the   annual -meeting   in  London, on July 13, of the London  & Canada. Syndicate, which furnished the capital to develop the  properties of the Boundary Creek  Mining &  Milling ^Company near  Greenwood, it was decided to issue  7000 preference shares of the par  value of ��1 each to raise funds, for,  the  further  development   of  the  property.,   It was also decided to.  townsite   of    540  development of the mining properties. The bulk of the work has  been done on the Gold Bug, from  which 35 tons of high grade ore has  been shipped.   No Boxers in Corea.  Washington, July 18.���Tarn Ye,  the Corean charge d'affaires, said  today in regard to the United  States minister Allen's dispatch to  the state department as to the  gathering of the Boxers and Chinese soldiers in force near the  northern borders of Corea, that he  did not anticipate an extension of  the Boxer revolt in Corea. The  words "Boxers and Chinese soldiers"  he thought had been used in a  very broad sense. He said it  has all along been difficult to discriminate between the ' imperial  troops and the Boxers themselves.  There would be nothing alarming  in the fact of the imperial troops  being in close proximity to the borders of Corea but, of course, in view  of the tension in China, the uncertainty as to whbcher the approaching troops were Boxers or  the imperial troops themselves,  may have given risen to the fears  entertained by the people in the  north.          Safe Ten Days Ago.  Hong Kong, July 18.���Li Hung  Chang and his suite arrived here  yesterday evening and landed this  morning. They were received with  a salute of 15 guns, with a guard of  honor from the Welch Fusileers  and a band. He proceeded to the  government house where he was  received by the governor, sir Henry  A. Bohle, general Barrow and other  officials. Li Hung Chang was extremely reticent. He stated that  he had received definite news that  the ministers and foreigners at  Pekin, with the exception of baron  von Ketteler, the German minister,  were safe on July - 8. The imperial  edict recalling him to Pekin, the  viceroy said, was due to the empress and emperor and not to prince  Tuan. ��� '  Li Going North.  Brussels, July 18.���The Belgian  consul at Hong Kong telegraphs  that Li Hung Chang passed through  that city today on his way to the  north. Before his departure the  viceroy had a long interview with  the governor of Hong Kong. The  secretary, of the legation at Shang-  Hai telegraphs today that according to Chinese information the  foreigners in Pekin have taken  refuge in the Palace of prince  Ching.       ]    ���  Shooting at Bisley.

The mass of statistical material  which goes to the making of the  volume published yearly by the Interstate Commerce Commission  of  the United 'States as "its statistical  'vreporfc must be so great, and the  time and labor required for the di-  'gestiou of that material so considerable,   that it is to be taken as  matter of course that there will be  no little delay between the close -of  the year dealt with and the appearance of the annual volume.   That  the delay has grown to be rather  prolonged is evident from the fact  that the report covering the year  ending June 30th, 1809, has not yet  made its appearance,   though advance sheets have just been received  from Washington, giving an   abstract of the statistical summaries  it will contain.  From these it appears that there  was an increase in the single-track  railway -mileage, of .the United  States, during' the "year, of 2898  miles, making the total on June 30th,  1899, 189,295 miles. There were 36,-  703 locomotives in service, or 469  more than in 1898/ and the total  number of cars was 1,375,916, an increase of 49,742, being shown in this  item. Of this total, 32,850 are set  down as passenger cars, 1,295,510  credited to the freight service, and  56,556* to" the direct service of the  railways.   .  The total number of persons employed - by the railways ' of the  United Statesj as reported on June  30thy:i899, was 928,924, or an aver-  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson Oity, N. W. T.  age of 495 per 100 miles of line. As  compared with the number employed on 30th, 1898, this shows an increase of 54,336, or 21 per 100 miles  of line. During the year $522,967,-  896 was paid in wages and salaries,  an amount $77,459,635 in excess of  that paid during 1895. The compensation of the employees of railways for 1899 represents 60 per  cent of their gross earnings.  The number of passengers carried  during the year ending June 30th,  1809, as shown in the annual reports of railways, was 523,175,508,  showing an increase for the year of  22,109,827. The number of tons of  freight carried during the year was  959,763,583, an increase of 80,757,276.  being shown. For the year ending  June 30th, 1899, the gross earnings  from the operations of the railways  in the United States, covering an  operated mileage of 187,534.68 miles,  were $1,313,610,118, being $66,284,-  497 more than for the preceding  fiscal year. The operating expenses  were $850,968,999, the increase in  this item being $38,905,723.  The total number of casualties to  persons on account of railways accidents during the year was 51,743.  The aggregate number of persons  killed as a result of railway accidents during the year was 7123, and  the number injured was 44,620. Of  railway employees, 2210 were killed  and 3-1,923 were injured during the  year" covered by the report. The  casualties to employees resulting  from coupling,and uncoupling cars  were, persons killed, 200; injured,  6765. The- corresponding figures  for the preceding year were: killed,  279; injured, 6988. The number of  passengers killed during the year  was 238, and the number injured  was 3442. Corresponding figures  for the previous year were 221 killed,  and 2945 injured. One passenger  was killed for every 2,189,023 carried, and one injured for every 151,-;  998 carried.    -'-,-'- ,   '  "The amount" of railway capital  outstanding on June 30th, 1899,,was  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager.  E. Hay, Inspector.  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M. LAY, Manager.  $11,033,954,898. This amount assigned to a mileage basis represents  a capitalization ot $60,556 per mile  of line. Of this amount of capital  $5,515,011,726 existed in the form of  stock, of which $4,323,800,969 was  common stock and $1,191,710,757  preferred stock. The amount which,  existed in the form of funded debt  was $5,518,943,172. The amount of  caDital stock paying no dividend  was $3,275,509,181, or 59.39 per cent  of the total amount outstanding.  The amount of dividends declared  during the year was $111,009,822,  which would be produced by an  average rate of 4.96 per cent on the  stock on which some dividend was  declared.  In reviewing these United States  railway statistics for the year ending June 30th, 1899, it is interesting to look back upon .the railway  record for the same :period in Canada. That year was notable, in  the first place, for an unprecedented  increase in the volume of traffic.  All the leading railways were  pushed to their utmost -to supply  the needed facilities. Increased  traffic earnings were shown, but  with heavier receipts came heavier  expenditures, and so the outlays  nearly kept pace with _ the income.  It was' estimated .upon the -most  conservative basis that' it cost $300  per mile more in that year to maintain a first-class railway in its normal condition than it did the year  before. The extension of mileage,-  in Canada as in the United States,  was somewhat hindered ,v by - the  high price of iron and steel and the  inability in numerous .instances to  obtain rails, bridge material' and  other , supplies in seasonable time,'  and at reasonable price. The year j  was-marked; nevertheless, by general'improvement of railways' and;  increase of railway facilities. Along i  these lines the advance has been'  steady; keeping pace with the constantly increasing general prosperity of the Dominion. Ifc is only by!  improvement   of   equipment , aud  roadbed that such time-tables as  those of the Imperial Limited on  the C. P. R. and the Grand Trunk  daily flyer from Montreal to Chicago is made possible, the former  making the run from Montreal to  Vancouver in - one hundred.hours,  the latter making the distance  from Montreal to Toronto, which is  333 miles, in six hours and forty  minutes one day last week.

The Miner's Magazine.  The American Smelting & Refining Company is going to build a  large smelter in the Salt Lake valley. It will have an initial capacity  of 20,000 tons a month, with an arrangement that it can be increased  to 40,000 tons a month. A year ago  the ' attorney foi' the American  Smelting & Refining Company  threatened if the Colorado supreme  court decided in favor of the eight-  hour law, the people who have capital would take it to states where  they could conduct such industries  without    legislative    restrictions.  New Denvor Ledge.  Many people of this world are  thin in the mental skin and full of  envy, hatred and general cussedness  when cold water is thrown on their  ideas, customs, politics, religion or  prejudices by an editor. Then it is  that their little souls light up with  a flash of anger, and they make a  splash much the same as a pebble  does when it is flung into Slocan  lake. I have noticed this ever since  I first travelled the journalistic  trail. Run a dead, musty _ paper  and it will be so peaceful around  the office that the flies .will die for  lack r of visitors Jo stir them up.  Make'a sheet livlly" and fearless,  and one-half of the-community will  be alternately blessing and cursing  you, while not a' single reader will -  suffer from ennui.  If I roast those jackals of the  press, commonly known as jackleg  editors, for being a blight on the  community and *a curse to their  creditors, every one of the syphaxi-  cal spawn will open their yawps  and bark just like other little town  dogs do when a' stranger throws a  bone at them.  If I declare that a Roman Catholic  church should be demolished and  every Mick compelled to eat meat  on Friday then the sons of King  'Billy will pat me on the back until  my natural < growth is impeded and  everything is trimmed in orange.  , If I' honestly 'state that Orange-  ism should never���have emigrated  from Ireland, and that its annual  celebration in America only has a  tendency- to cause ill' feeling between neighbors, -then ignorant  geysers who know absolutely noth-i  ing about King William's history  will consign me to a southern home  along with the-pope, while the  Micks will exclaim, "Shure, its sinse  you have, if yerVdoes live in New'  Denver!" - '; "  I have often-found ifc difficult to"  arrive at the truth of events only a  ' week old, even in these days of the  art' preservative of all "arts. Yet,  *at a misty period of the' world's  history four hundred years after he  is said to have died, I find that a  history was written of Christ which  millions accept as absolute truth.  While believing in the beauties of  the Jesus, character as set forth in  the bible, if I was to assert that his  existence was only a myth and that  he never lived except in the brain  of a romancer, how many parsons in  this broad land but what would  hold up their hands in theological  horror and say that I was wicked  enough to be damned? Nearly  every one of them, and yet I am  told that this is a free country.  If I stand pat for the miners how  the pot-bellied gold hoarders of  Europe will curse" me and say I  should have my ~ wings clipped.  How the miner will bless me, and  as he walks down the road past my  office to the saloon, throws up a five  to treat theK'7crdwd, exclaiming,  "The colonel is a peach, and I will  take liis paper some day when I .can  "afford_it7' my soul might be mad  with the joy of appreciation while  there was nothing in my stomach  but prunes and lake water.  If I bow down to the capitalists,  say that they are the only people,  and that the Lord created the  Slocan for their use and that the  laws should be made for their benefit, I will be rewarded with their  good wishes and many will exclaim,  "Deucedly clevah papah that chap  publishes in New Denver. I wonder what he lives on, the scenery  must be nutritious, doncher know,  By Jove I"  Thus it goes on. No matter  what I put my pen into I will find  some to hiss and some to applaud.  If I print a good, live paper in one  town, the inhabitants of sister  towns will turn green and send  their job printing a thousand or less  miles away with the false hope of  dimming the journalistic light that  shines for all, provided they will  not shut its rays out by putting up  temporary barriers.  Now the above company has smelters from Pennsylvania to California and from Mexico to the  Canadian line, yet where do they  begin the building of a new smelter?  In Utah, the only state where an  eight-hour law is on the statute  book, is selected for the new smelter. If an eight-hour law is so  dangerous to this company's interest, why do they deliberately  seek to get under its operation  when they could just as well go  into so many other states. The  pages of this magazine are open to  tbe gentlemen of the American  Smelting & Refining Company, or  its attorneys, for a reply. '  Four Communication Lines.  Phoenix,. July 18.���Within the  last few days Phoenix has been  given wire communication with,the  outside world by a fourth system.  The C. P. R. has run its wires here  from Eholt, and placed Oscar Day  here as station agent and telegraph  operator. The other lines are the  Spokane & Northern Telegraph  Company and the Nelson & Vernon  Telephone & Telegraph Company,  and the, Columbia Telephdne ���'&  Telegraph Company. The C.'P. R.  telegraph office is in the new depot  recently completed by that company here, which is located at the  junction of the Brooklyn and Old;  Ironsides spurs. At present it is'  being used largely for rail way busi-j  ness, and it is likely that the temporary office at Hartford junction,  two miles nearer Eholt, will be'dis-1  continued before long. The C. P. R. ���  is making every arrangement to|  .handle a large' and increasing ore!  traffic, which is just beginning tos  assume considerable proportions,:  now- that the Old Ironsides* and;  Knob Hill mines have actually com-!  menced to ship to the Granby'  smelter at Grand'Forks.  An Imperturbable Witness.  A horse from a livery stable died  soon after it was returned and the  man who hired it was sued for damages, says Collier's Weekly.

The last  property to resume work is the'  Juno group on Morning Mountain.  This group is under bond to a Montreal syndicate, represented hero by  Charles Parker, and two payments  have already been made. Mr. Parker intends to resume active development work on the property on August 1, when a force of fifteen men  will be sent up the hill.  The Juno is a free-milling property, carrying two strong quartz  ledges, on which considerable work  has been. done. One of the claims  of the group adjoins the Venus on  the south and in the breast of the  tunnel on that property where it  reaches the. Juno grotmd, the vein  shows up nearly two feet wide and  averages $40 in gold to the ton.
