London, July 19.���4 a.m.���While  evidence accumulates daily that  China has long been preparing a  formidable military organization in  ' anticipation of the present conflict,  and that the area of rebellion is  continually extending, that harmony among the allies which is  necessary to meet such a grave  situation, is still deplorably lacking.  The Russians have refused admiral  Seymour's request to hand over the  restored -Taku-Tien-Tsin raihvay to  the English company, and ii; is  rumored   that, Germany purposes  taking a serious independent step,  namely to patrol the Yang Tse  Kiang with German men of war.  Such a step would be greatly resented in England. Still more  alarming news has been conveyed  to the Daily Express from Tokio to  the effect that the apparent reluctance of Germany and Russia to  consent to a Japanese commander  for the army corps has led the Japanese government to delay the forwarding of the division already  mobilized.  The Standard, in an alarmist editorial, says: "It is useless any  longer to hide from ourselves the  fact"-that China has declared war  on civilization and has plunged into  the conflict with rabid frenzy. It  is equally futile to discuss whether  the hostilities are being waged by  ��� the Chinese government, inasmuch  as it is evident that an administra-  ������    r tion   of   some   kind exists and is  directing   the   anti-foreign   movement..   Unless uumistakeable evidence exculpating the Pekin government ���is promptly forthcoming,  the powers should treat China as a  .belligerent, state     and' act- accordingly.". ���    . r       -       .     ��� " '~  ', A   similar   line   ot ��� comment   is  -   ' taken by the other morning papers.  _     _   All applaud the course of count  /     von'-Buelow, the" German foreign'  W/'v - secretary,-in stopping cipher tele-  /���V gi'amsi,frqm1the_Chinese -legation-in  Berlin;'1'arid * all" li'rge ^the- other  ��� powers .to   follow Germany's..example. -  '  The Russian general staff denies  the report that the Chinese" have  captured Blagovetchensk, capital of  '       the province of Amur, and it is  '      reported from Irukutsk  that the  Russians have taken Aigun.  1�� A   special despatch   from Tien-  Tsin   distributes   the   number    of  those killed at the capture of the  .      native city city as follows : Russians 100. Japanese  57,. British 40,  and Americans 37.    The correspon-  ,   dent who sends  this asserts   that  thousands of Chinese, were killed,  f      and'that fighting was still going on  when   his despatch   was sent,   in  various parts of Tien.Tsin.     --.       ���  ' ;,,,    With   reference   to the rumors  i      that'Europeans were seen working  the Japanese guns at Tien-Tsin, the  Standard Iparns that eight Russian  ^-���^���military-instructors forciblydetain--  ' 3d by the Chinese were compelled  '-   to work the guns. One escaped and  reached the Russian lines with his  hands bound.  A special correspondent of the  1 Daily Express at Tien-Tsin contrasts the "splendid work and perfect equipment of the Tapanese  wifch the inadequate supplies of the  British. German and American contingents, which are terribly lacking  jn the most obvious necessities."  The first Boxer proclamation has  made its appearance in Shanghai.  It declares that Kwan, the war god,  desires the blood"'of foreigners. ���,  The governors of the provinces of.  Hu Nan, Pu Pi and Honan have now  openly joined prince Tuan and are  marching; overland with tlieir  armies to:Pekiu.V  _. A German relief column, sent into  "the interior of the province of  Shang Tung to endeavor to rescue  a partyof,30 missionaries, German,  American and English, has returned  without haying obtained any tid-.  iugs of their whereabouts^ and it is  feared that all have been slain.  A special commission is sitting in  St. Petersburg daily to arrange for  the dispatch of troops to the far  east. It is announced from Shang-  Hai that general Nieh has been  killed, but there is no confirmation  of the rumor from Tien-Tsin.    ,  ' The consuls at Shang-Hai have  agreed to regard the viceroy of  Nan Kin as the chief authority,; so  far as the collection of revenue is  concerned. When the viceroy was  informed of this attitude he appointed Mr. Taylor, statistical  secretary of customs, to be inspector of customs ad interim in succession to sir Robert Hart,     -  -7��  <n  -m  ��*��  t��  i��  i��  i��  m  4*.  m  <n  m  <p  i��  m  m  *  m  m  *  m  m  *��  m  *��  m  *  m  i��  m  + ���  ��n  ft  ��r��  f��  i��  i��  *  <_K  f��  m  <n  f��  m  <n  i��  <r��  m  i��  *  <����  <n  .<n  m  <n  *\  *  <n  m  f  <n  <n  m  m  Voted for Peace and Prosperity.

Victoria, July 18. (Special to The  Tribune.)���The opening of tho provincial   legislature  by lieutenant-  governor Joly is fixed for tomorrow  at 8-p.; m.   A great many preparations were going on today 'to... make  : the. occasion- as impressive r as possible.    The guard of honor, besides  the  -usual''.; army  and  and   navy  . officers/   will \ likely  include   the  officers of the Chilian man-of-war,  Generale Baquedano, now in port..  ;:J. P. Booth, speaker under the  former    Turner   government.' will  probably be chosen again tomorrow.   The government would like  to' make the   session   as short as  possible, merely passing the estimates and a few indispensible bills,  but.it is not likely that with such:a  quartette of fighters as,Joe Martini  Browh.of Westminster (lately commissioner of lands and works) W.  W. B..Mclnnes and Smith Curtis,  that the governnjent will find their  position a bed of roses.' It is likely  to be^a sharp fight froni the first  and lively times are'anticipated.  It is intended to call another session, as usual in the new year, the  present session being to straighten  out the tangled ends of the late  crisis, and to secure a vote of  enough funds to run the country,  as appropriations ceased on June  30th, the end of the fiscal year.  The speech from the throne will  not be very voluminous or promise  much legislation. A promise of  some steps toward getting the  Dominion to take some action in  regard to the demands for greater  restriction of Japanese immigration  ;may be looked for. "  'A vigorous .policy in road building'will be promised. It is understood that with it a desire' to in-'  crease the revenue by a tonnage  tax on the output of the coal will  be promised.    ��� .  No More Quotations.  Chicago, July 18.���-Both the  Postal and Western Union telegraph companies have decided to  abandon their board of trade quotations after July 31. The decision  to abolish the service is the result  of a failure to arrive at an agreement with the board of directors  regarding the terms, which the  telegraph companies considered  unjust, and as to - the restrictions  the board of trade desired the telegraph companies to exercise in their  service of the quotations outside of  Chicago, in spite of sundry decisions  of the courts. The telegraph companies say the quotation service is  the life of the board of trade and  predict much trouble if it is discontinued. The. directors of the  board say, however, that the. companies' action provides a solution of  the bucket shop problem. .  BIG BATTLE AT TIEN-TSIN  Legations Well Provisioned.  Tien-Tsin, Friday July 13th, 7 p.  m., via Che-Foo, July 16th, and  Shang-Hai, July 18th.���The battle,  !which was begun* with the attack'  by 7000 of the 3 allied ^forces upon  ! the .walls of'the-natiye, city' at two  o'clock this afternoon' continued all.  day, two battalions of the ninth  infantry participating. It . is  reported that 315 of this command  were killed or wounded, including  ten or fifteen oflicers.   .  Colonol B. H. Liscum was killed  and majors Jesse M. Lee and, James  B/egan. captain Charles R. Noyes,  Andrew Brewster and Edwin Book-  miller and first lieutenants William  K. Taylor. Louis B. Laughton, Harold Hammond and Ira C. Wallibn  were wounded.    Among the United  States marines the casualties numbered   forty.      Captain Austin. R.  Davis was killed . and captain Wm.  S. Lemley and firsrt lieutenant Henry  jLeonard and rSmedley  D. , Butler  ���-were wounded;   The American cpn-  itingent suffering for want of water  ?and food, besides   being short  of  ammunition, they -were ordered by  general Dorward   to   retire under  cover of darkness.  The Russians were outside the  east wall, while the Japanese,  British and French,were: close to  the west wall with the Chinese trying to flank them. The walls were  sadly battered by shells. The attack will be renewed in the morning. The total losses of the allied  forces are estimated at 300.  A messenger has arrived here  who left Pekin on July first. The  foreigners at that time were all in  the British legation. The Chinese  troops were beginning to bombard  the legations from the streets. The  legations had been-under rifle fire  for a week previously, and in that  time four foreigners had been  killed arid thirteen wounded. The  marines had unsuccessfully attempted to capture a gun on a wall  commanding the legations. The  foreigners were supplied with an  abundance of provisions.  Paper Box Makers to Fight Trust.  Niagara Falls, New York, June  18.���The association of paper box  makers met in annual convention  here today. This is the first joint  meeting of the various associations  throughout the country. One of  the objects of the association is to.  fight the trust which controls the  manufacture of wheat straw, and  pasteboard, which is < principally  used in their business. Many manufacturers are already buying the  raw material themselves aud manufacturing from the pulp. Plans for  the erection of a central factory  for the benefit of the entire trade  are being discussed.  RUSSIA PLAYS A LONE HANO  The Foreym Contingent*.  Berlin, -July 18.���The Berliner  Tageblatt's correspondent at St.  Petersburg declares that it cannot  be doubted that Russia is preparing  for a separate campaign against  Pekin from the north by land. He  adds that Russia does not .believe  the allied campaign from Tien-Tsin  will be successful or in time.  In reply to questions put by "the  Associated Press correspondent today, a leading foreign office official  said:   ;    .,  ������'," There has been no agreement  between the powers regarding the  size of the forces to be sent to  China1- Each power is sending the  number that she can spare. There  has been no exchange of -notes on  the subject, but a tacit understanding seems to prevail that each  power will send a contingent adequately corresponding with her real  interest in China, commercial or  territorial."  ,>,,.  "     Wolmarans Arrested.  - Pretoria, July 18.���J. M. A.  Wolmarans, of the Transvaal  executive council, has been arrested  at his house within tbe British  lines near Hatherly.

Charbin is in a critical  state being cut off from the west,  south and north. , * ..  Russian troops haye_been.sent  fronrvarious points to protect the  railway. ' The Chinese, however,  are still working on the eastern  section   of. the  line, which'   gives  cvl  v,'l  may  hope that eneagetic measures  succeed in restoring order.  In the opinion of the general  staff, the chief command of the  allied forces at Tien-Tsin will  eventually devolve upon the Russian vice-admiral Alexieff, in con-,  junction with the Japanese commander-in-chief.  Say They Are Safe.  Brussels, July 18.���The Belgian  minister of foreign affairs, M. de  Favbre,' has received a telegram  from the Belgian legation in Paris  saying that the > Chinese minister,  Yu Kong, has received an official  telegram announcing that the for-  eigns ministers in Pekin were safe  on July 13th. The advices received  by Yu Kong are presumably identical with those received on Tuesday  by the Chinese minister in Wash--  ington, the date of July 13th by  the Chinese calendar corresponding  to our July the 0th.

Pincher Creek will be a* proud  place now that it has been mentioned in despatches by lord Roberts.  The men from Pincher Creek showed great courage, and held off a  large body of ' Boers. Gossip informs us that when the-men were  leaving Pincher Creek for the war  they were given such a sendoff that  they scarcely woke up until the  train reached Winnipeg, but the reception they will get when they re-  .turn home will ,be worth crossing  the continent to see, from the top  of one of the adjoining mountains.  They do nothing by halves out that'  way, and when their men fight the  .Boers they .do notdo.it in any halfhearted way, either. This country  has reason,.to be proud of the four  men from Pincher Creek mentioned  in despatches by lord.Roberts.  Dangerous. Games.  Recently a football. match was  played at Budapest between German and Hungarian- teams. .  One  player had his leg broken, another  suffered "a broken arm, and a third  had his nose smashed.     These accidents   have caused   a tremendous  sensation and and outcry.against  .English sports. One journal writes;  "English "sports are  as .brutal as  English manners' and ruffianly ��� as  the English national character. Let  us abolish these wild pastimes fit  for cannibals, lunatics and English-  ' men. but not for the civilized peoples   of   the   continent."     Another  paper exclaims, "Away with these  barbarian pleasures.    Tiie English,  whose   plebeian   instinct" regards  dueling as murder, do not scruple to  main and   kill under the guise of  sport.   Let uskeep our dueling and  the English their football." A third  protest runs : "English spoftThave"  been show up in their , true light  with all their debasing tendencies.  We must protect our youth against  the barbarizing influences imported  from England.   Let our boys play  the innocent   games of' childhood  and avoid such murderous pastimes  as football and cricket."  AND AMATEUR  PHOTOGRAPHERS'  SUPPLIES OF  ALL KINDS.  CAMiDW  &B00EC0.  NELSON, B.

Compressed air as a motive power  on railroads for short distances to  suburban points and for yard engines is in contemplation for c employment at an early date. The  Compressed Air Company of this  city has just finished the construction at its works in Rome of an  engine for drilling purposes and  also a truck on which a motor truck  can be superimposed. The company  has had inquiries from railroad  companies as to its motors and the  practicability of their uso on railroads. Its response is the construction of the drill engine and the  motor truck.  The engine is a queer looking machine, lu general it conforms to  the shape of the railroad locomotive,  but it has no smokestack, bell,  sandbox or other contrivance on  top or any pipes or gearing around  or under the boiler.

A British column advancing in  time of war through an enemy's  country is at once a magnificent  and a remarkable spectacle; or,  rather, to be quite correct, it would'  [ be, provided the eye could take in  all the details at a single glance.  But that is just precisely what  the eye cannot do. A column of  even moderate strength when on  the move lengthens itself out  abnormally; so ��� much so, indeed,  that a body of troops which in  review order could bo packed within  a .moderate-sized parade ground  will occupy ribbonwise eight, ten  or even more miles of country.  We will, therefore, take up a  position on au eminence���a kopje if  you like���and watch in imagination  a column of British regulars marching on, say, Pretoria.  First there will come in sight,  riding at a walking pace athwart  the boulderstrewn veldt, a solitary  pair of horsemen. These are the  advance points, a9 they are termed,  aud are thrown forward perhaps a  mile ahead of the vanguard.- They  are on the lookout for the enemy,  and on the first hint of danger it is  their duty to ride back to left and  ight and alarm the flankers.  These latter are thrown out fan-  wisefrom the cavalry, which screens  'the infantry vanguard, and they,  / in their turn, pass the word back  1 along the trailing, snakelike ribbon  / of-armed men, till within half "an  hour, say, of the enemy's being first  sighted ' the      entire    .command  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, XT. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  knows of the threatened danger and  is prepared to deal with it.  The two advanced points have  been well likened to a couple of  electric buttons, which, on being  touched, thrilfthe alarm down both  flanks throughout the entire length  of .the column with which they are  in communication.     The simile is  not quite perfect, however, for the  alarm is sounded by these living  electric buttons while yet the danger is .remote. ' Some hundreds of  yards in the rear of the cavalry  screen comes the  advance guard,  subdivided into a vanguard and a  main guard. This latter constitutes  the first fighting unit of   the advancing column, and its strength is,  of   .course,   proportionate   to   the  strength of the force it is covering.  With it are field and machine guns,  sappers,    miners, * engineers,   ambulances, reserve ammunition wagons, aud so forth.   In fact, the advance guard of a large column constitutes in itself a lighting force���a  miniature army, so to speak, ,com-:  plete in    practically all. essential  details.    After the advance guard  has passed we shall probably see���  emerging from the clouds  of dust  which    always,    except    in   wet  weather, envelop as with a mantle  a column on the march���another  solitary pair of horsemen, and then  at intervals another and yet an-,  other.    These are the connecting  links.     A half troop,'or perhaps, if  the force is a large one, a:.whole-  troop of cavalry will come next,  then' more connecting- links, and  lastly the officer commanding; surrounded and accompanied by,his  staff.   The uninitiated in matters  military will now' probably expect  to see the main body of .the army;  butno. Asingleiufantrybattalion,or  maybe   tw.o, . will   perhaps    pass,  marching   strictly ,to "attention,"  bayonets fixed, and officers' swords  carried naked at the, slope; after  which there will heave, slowly into,  sight an apparently endless train of  field artillery, .machine guns, am'-  Imperial Bank of Ganada  HEAD  OFFICE.

It is only  when this heterogeneous procession  has come to an end that the thickening of the dust-cloud aud the  measured tramp��� tramp-it'ramp!  herald the approach of the infantry  brigades. On they come, rifles at  the slope or at the trail, talking,  laughing, joking, singing, smoking,  as though war and its attendant  horrors were a thousand miles  away. "On they come���and still on I  Battalion after battalion; brigade  after brigade. i  It comes almost monotonous after  a while, for the mighty fighting  machines,     each   composed   of   a  thousand or more individual fighting   units,   swing -past   with   the  mechanical   precision   of   gigantic  automata.   Everything moves as if  by clockwork.   Thirty paces' interval is the regulation distance between battalions and brigades, and  thirty paces' interval it is���no more,  no less.   There is no slackening, no  hesitancy, for all the apparent free-  and-easiness.'    A    company    lags  but a foot or two; it is spurred  sharply . forward    by  - a   biting  phrase���half    expostulation,   half,  command���uttered by ��� its captain.  A ' battalion does likewise; and a  wave of the hand from its ever-'  -watchful chief sends the adjutant  galloping down the right flank, exploding as he goes.    So is the force  kept ."strung   up."    And   a very  necessary   process" is   this   same'  stringing up.     The loss ��� of a few  yards at the head ' means' hundreds  at the tail.   , A trivial check to the  front of a long column is a serious  delay to the men in the rear of it,  and continual stepping out or rapid  closing tends to exhaust troops.' "  :.' With the passing of the rearmost  brigade the interest to the average  spectator largely-vanishes.'' True,  there follow   more, machine guns,  more.toolhearts/, ammunition ,wagons, led" horses, etc.,' but all ��� these  we have seen before.   The bearer  companies, witfr'their trim stretchers and the red cross of Geneva  showing conspicuously on their  tunic sleeves, arouse a brief curios-  its- bu* they are out of sight, swallowed up in - thefdust-cloud almost  ere we realize their presence. If,  however, we carelfco occupy our kopje  for another hour* orvso we shall see  yet another cloud of dust advancing  toward us. This is formed by the  baggage train which follows all  armies. Lastly come the rear guard,  followed by a small detachment of  military police, whose duty it is to  look after stragglers.  "BECAUSE  I   LOVE   HIM."

How far is lady Randolph Churchill,-the clever, independent American, going to allow her happiness to  be influenced by the heir apparent  to the English throne ?  - How , far is ��� young Cornwallis  West,* the -ardent" and .impetuous  wooer of twenty-five, going to submit to parental interference ?  .England, who r"has known lady  Randolph Churchill ever since she  became the wife;; of the late -lord  "Randy" twenty-five years ago���in  the same year, by the way, that her  present ,suitor was- born���believes  that she will bid defiance to conventional ties and wed in spite "of them.  Society-is straining ' its ears for  the first news of-the secret marriage  which will set their tongues wagging  with reminiscences.  Z * -  There are those who uphold the  fascinating Mrs. Cornwallis West in  her protest against her son's marrying a woman who is her own contemporary.  There are those who range themselves on the side of love.  Today, as every one knows, a woman of forty-five may be as young  as a Ninon de l'Enos, who retained  her. power to captivate when she  was seventy. So did Mine. Recamier.'  Lady Randolph Churchill's hair is  as black as when she was Jennie  Jerome, a New .York girl, who announced her engagement to an Englishman with a title at a day when  international marriages in high life  were a novelty."   iShe_has_retained_alLher_old=time-  vivacity. She has added to her old-  time fascination the cleverness of a  woman of the world. She is her  own mistress, and it remains to be  seen if there is anyone powerful  enough to prevent her marrying  a good-looking, sunny-tempered,  handsome young man, young  enough to be her son, whom she  loves and who loves her.  Lady Randolph Churchill, who  made her husband the most powerful statesman in England, the leader  of the house of commons, is for the  moment balked by a nother love.  ,- By the faith -of all England she  will rise above it.L  Meanwhile Mrs. Cornwallis West  has the ear of royalty.  She has always had it. She had  it many years ago, when she and  the beautiful lady Randolph  Churchill were equally young, pi-  quante and captivating.  Twenty-five years ago the prince  of Wales made no secret of his devotion to the lovely Irish beauty,  Mrs. Cornwallis West. She came of  a generation of flirts. She had the  art at her fingers' tips, and its dangerous shafts lurked very near the  surface of her hazel eyes. Her  grandmother, lady Olivia Pitz  Patrick, disturbed the domestic  peace of England's royal family  fifty years ago by a mild flirtation  with that alleged paragon of virtue,  the late prince Consort, husband of  queen Victoria.  It was but a trick of inheritance  when her daughter fascinated that  example of all a husband should not  be���the prince of Wales.  Mrs. Cornwallis West was not  only one of the greatest beauties of  her day, but she was also one of the  most daring and original. Middle-  aged beaux still remember how she  used to dance with reckless and  Oriental abandon, disdaining to be  fettered by the restraining corset.  She was recognized as the life and  soul of the princo of Wales's set,  when that set was most extravagant and most audacious. Her day-  was Mrs. Langtry's day,- but she  had an advantage. Back of her  was a^ wealthy husband, who kept  her from degrading her social position. She was a famous beauty,  created such by the admiration of.  the prince of Wales, and a famous  flirt, who laid siege on the principle  that the true pleasure of a flirtation  is to have a man really in love with  you while you are only pretending  to be in love with him.. Pretence^  on both sides gives a certain hollow-  ness to the affair that makes it but  a dreary mockery.  ���  Mrs. Cornwallis West was happily;  married^ so it may be inferred that  the prince was for the moment-^-  that moment way back twenty-five  years ago���captivated. /  Now in the unhappiness which  has come upon her recently the  Irish beauty has invoked the aid of  her old time beau.  Lady Randolph Churchill has  never stood high in the favor of the  prince of Wales, primarily because*,  as a true .wife should, she sided with  her husband in a very bitter quarrel  with the heir apparent when the  latter tried to insist that the late  duke of Marlborough���her brother-  in-law���should adopt a certain  course with regard to the Aylesford  divorce scandal.  It is v a year since lady Randolph!  Churchill was first engaged to young  Cornwallis West.   At that time he  was    seen    constantly   with -*the  charming American widow, whose'  son  was almost his age.   The en-*  gagement    was   announced    with'  every circumstance of fashionable  publicity.   It was at xCowes at a  moment when all patrician   England,   from  the prince   of Wales  down, was assembled there.   That  night lady Randolph Churchill was  a guest at a dinner given by the  count, and countess  Castellane on  board their yacht in honor of the  prince of Wales.   Everybody congratulated them, beginning with the  prince ^himself.     The > engagement  became straightway a nine days'  wonder.   At the same time every  one insisted that it was not unexpected, as the lieutenant's infatuation had been plainly shown all the  year before in London.  Every one, foolishly* enough, relied upon, what they were pleased  to call lady Randolph's discretion.  She had nothing to gain socially  by such a match and it seemed well  nigh impossible to credit her, the  mother of a son who a year ago ran  for election as member of parliament, with having given her "heart,  to a lieutenant barely twenty-five.  The young man's father and  mother broke into violent protest.  As a first step in opposition they  denied the engagement everywhere  and administered open slights to  lady Randolph.  The prince of Wales was even  then appealed to. It was an open  secret that he went to call upon the  Cornwallis Wests to talk it over.  It was known that he interceded  with the lady herself and retreated  rebuffed.  Among those who were most  bitterly-opposed-to-the.match^were  lady Randolph's own sons, the elder  of whom, indeed, took the trouble  to go to all the newspapers and  press agencies asking them to deny  the existence of the engagement at  tbe very moment when his mother  was doing all in her power to give  it publicity.  These young men are both financially dependent upon their mother,  ���who-may--at-any moment cut off  their allowances.  Of her older son, lieutenant Winston Churchill, lady Randolph is extremely fond, and her ambition is  to see him hold as, great a position  in English politics as his father.  Young Churchill began his career  as a soldier, but she was anxious to  see him out of that dangerous profession, and as a great inducement  to that end she founded the sumptuous Anglo-Saxon and made him  its editor.  Lieutenant Churchill, realizing  that nothing could induce his  mother to break off her match with  young West, became disgusted and  irritated. He embraced the first  opportunity that offered to leave  the country. As soon as the war  with South Africa broke out he  hastened to drop the Anglo-Saxon  Review and join the army.  When lady Randolph's son left,  her lover was already preparing to  go. His regiment, the Scots Guards,  was part of the Army Corps forwarded after the outbreak of the  war and was one of the first to sail.  Its departure was a great event  in society. Everybody of importance from the prince of Wales  downward was interested. The  rumor flew through society that  lady Randolph had assisted young  West to purchase his kit and had  supplied him with no end of luxuries.  The prince of Wales held a special farewell inspection of the regiment, which all the London social  world attended. Lady Randolph  was^ there with tears rolling down  her cheeks; the young man was*observed to glance at her and-turn-  aside with moist eyes. Even society,  who disapproved of the match,  sympathized in their separation.  Lady Randolph seemed to grow ten  years older with the thought that  her handsome, boyish, rosy cheeked  loyer might soon be lying <on the  dreary veldt with a bullet wound  through his heart.  ' As every one may remember, as  soon as her son and young West  had departed lady Randolph buried  her sorrow in work for the .great'  American hospital ship Maine, with  which she eventually went to South  .Africa.  Meanwhile   her   engagement  to  young Cornwallis West was officially declared off.   He was reported  to be broken hearted.   It was-, said r  that he had made a solemn vow to  his parents on leaving England that  he would not marry lady Randolph  whatever happened.   It was assert-'  ed that she had at last, given a similar promise'"to the prince of Wales  and to certain members of her own  family."   Yet there were still those*  knowing ones who protested that  the attachment of  the  two  had  never been greater.  As if to confirm this, regardless  of all statements to the contrary,  the very moment a certain great  battle was over .West telegraphed  to lady Randolph that he was safe.  Indeed telegrams passed constantly  between the pair.  In  view  of  these" events,, ��� and  .others which may have been merely.',  connected, society attributed lady  Randolph's journey to South Africa  on the Maine to, other than philanthropic t intentions.     They "put  it.  down to a longing to see her lover.  '  -.These knowing ones also believe  that the   ordering- of   lieutenant-  West home on,the day the Maine  sailed, and the'fact that the news  was conveyed " to lady- Randolph  just as the Maine was leaving Eng-X  land was thought to have been very,  sharp counter-moves on the part of  the prince of Wales.  ,He was admitted on all sides to have scored a  big point in the game.

The lacrosse club met at the firev  hall last night to consider the matter of bringing tbe Medicine Hat  team here for a game. It was decided to bring off the proposed  game, if possible, and to play  matches on August 4 and 5. In the  meantime active practice will be  resumed. Jack Vanstone was appointed manager of the club.  Several members of the Rifle association shot over the ranges yesterday. H. E. MacDonnell headed  the list with a score of 84 points.  Supporters of the Rossland baseball club are kicking because their  imported players are too costly,  with the result * that the club's  finances show a deficit. Incidentally  it is said that tbe Rossland club  was forced to import men because  of the action of neighboring clubs,  meaning Nelson. _ Rosslanders  may take notice that not a' single  member of the Nelson nine has been  imported. ��� They are all bona fide  residents, who came here in the  firstinstance without any inducements being,offered them.
