 FgggWSg^  gjagggySSSSSSS^  T  ">a;*  "IU..   Hj! .IMI.  i''*'  I  to  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAH.  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING JULY 14  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  I''  IKE VON BUELOW'S NOTE  Will Use Nagasaki.  "Washington, July 13.���Mr. Wel-  lant, the Russian charge d'affaires,  called at tho state department today to talk over the Chinese situation -with secretary Hay. He  stated that ho had no advices from  liis own government touching tho  latest developments at I'ekin. lb  i.s understood that the state department is basing its repeated affirmations of the willingness of Russia  to permit largo operations by  ��� ������Japan*in China on the representations made by Mr. Wellant.  The department  is  much  gratified at the statements attributed to  count von Buelow in" the  outline of  liis note to the German States, published in the Associated Press  dispatches  this   morning, in  tho absence of the full text of the  note.  The officials have  read  in  the abstract a  complete  reaffirmation of  the principles laid down  by secretary Hay, as guiding the  policy of  llie   United  States  toward  China.  Some of  the  declarations   of   the  {fcrman chancellor might be almost  regarded   as    paraphrases   of   the  United States' note on the  subject.  The state department anticipates  no difficulty in  the trans-shipment  of troops and material and animals  for the army iu China iu the Japanese port of Nagasaki, as the contention that to uso it as a base in this  fashion would be a violation  of in-  .t-'rnational law, constituting a hostile act against China  in  the absence of a declaration of war, is declared by the officials here to be absolutely frivolous.    As a matter of  f,u*t, the war department has been  freely availing  itself of Nagasaki  as a point of transport aud port of  rest ever since the end  of  the war  with Spain, and the Japanese government, having made no objection  so far, is  scarcely  likely either  to  iiiake a.protest itself or to  entertain one from any other nation under present conditions.  .'Japanese   officials    here    expect  t\C..b marshall Nodza. will aceom-  7>any     the     Japanese'   expedition  siliout to sail  to China.    The  rank  of marshall possibly will  be superior  to that of any other  foreign  commander,  military  or naval,  in  China.    Under the  Japanese   system the  rank  of niarshall corresponds with that of field marshall in  llie French system.    As a  result of  the China-Japan Avar three marshalls  were   created   by   Japan,  namely  Camataga, who made the. remarkable   march   into China from  the  north ; Oyama, who entered China  further south and seized  Port Arthur; aud general Nodza, who had  the honor of being the iirst Japanese  officer  to  score an  important  1 t-iumph ou Chinese soil.'   He is be-  ��� yond middle life, is a stern disciplinarian and has  the  reputation of  being an impetuous lighter. -He is  a strong believer in cavalry.  pounds during the present week.  Both boxers are doing light work  now and -will ease up still more before Monday. Interest in the  sporting world is centered in the  match, but little betting has as  yet been done. The big plungers  recognize that all of Erne's cleverness and possibly a little more will  bo required to defeat tho little  Brooklyn whirlwind, and the condition of the men in the ring will be  carefully noted before many large  wagers are made.  STEPS TAKEN IN GERMANY  von  Sending - Siege Guns.  Berlin, July 13.���Count  Buelow's declaration regarding  Germany's aims in China is much  discussed by the press and is almost unanimously endorsed.  : iso Chinese advices have been received at the foreign office today,  which fact is interpreted by the  press as ominous of disastrous news  in a few days.  The German military expedition  will carry one battery of 15 centimeter howitzers for the siege of  Pekin. The marine minister intends to charter thirty or forty  vessels for Chiua, many of them to  be used as supply ships.  At a meeting held here at which  were present a number of the highest politicians, leading bankers and  other persons of prominence, a  society was organized to collect  money to provide physicians and  nurses for the China expedition.  The offers of persons to serve as  nurses have been so numerous that  many cannot be accepted at present. The situation in China begins to affect German trade.  Undesirable Immigrants.  Washington,   July    13.���H.   C.  _E*sportslof-_Canadian^Cattle.=  A.  Listowel, July 18.���Mr. A. Zoli-  ner of Newcastle-on-Tyue, and John  Scott, a local cattle dealer, shipped  from the G. T. R. station here to-  d:<y 102 cattle for England. They  comprised some of the finest export  cattle that have ever been shipped  from this district. Mr. Zoliner will  ship between 300 and 400 more in  a few weeks from here. He has  also shipped nearly 200 cattle from  the Wellington and Waterloo "districts. It is noteworthy that his  attention was attracted to Canada  with many largo dealers in Eng-r.  land mainly through the prominence in which the country has been  brought by the Canadian contingents in South Africa.  Night Bicycle Racing.  Cambridge, Massachusetts, July  13.���Nelson's distance at the end of  the two hours was 0770] laps, while  Pirie   was   second with G170 and  laps.  Stinson   0470  and  _%  rN  two  Japs. Miller 0470 and 2�� laps.

Lightweights in Training.  New Yojik, July 13.���Prank  Erne has had no difficulty in getting down to the required 128  pounds for his match with Terry  McGovern at Madison Square Garden next Monday night. When  the agreement was first signed  Erne anticipated some hard work  in taking off the extra flesh, but it  lias been easy, and the lightweight  champion has been as low as 126��  Hamlin of Boston, formerly au assistant secretary of the treasury,  has been in conference with the  treasury officials' today in opposition to the proposed action of the  department in establishing certain  points along the-Canadian frontier  at which immigrants may enter  the United' States. It was represented that the Canadian steamship lines would gladly cooperate  with the' department in keeping  out immigrants of the prohibited  classes and to that end would allow  United States government officials  to inspect at the foreign port of  embarkation of all immigrants  bound for the United States. It  was also stated that the Canadian  steamship lines would deport all  immigrants destined for the United  States who should fail to pass the  United States inspector at the  Canadian port of arrival. In view  of these statements, the matter  will be left open for the present.  Assistant secretary Taylor will have  a conference . with the officials of  the Canadian steamship lines at  Quebec during 'the next month or  =tw-0,=wlien=a=definite=understanding  on the subject will likely be reached.  i    Communicating With Pekin.  Paris, July 13.���The Chinese  minister here has communicated to  M. Deleasse, the" minister of foreign  affairs,, an important edict, dated  June 29th. To this M. Deleasse has  replied that since the Chinese government had the means to communicate with its representatives  abroad, it ought to guarantee communications between the foreign  powers and their representatives at  Pekin, aud he has therefore charged  the minister to transmit a telegram  to M. Pichon, the French minister  to China.  Statement is Denied.  Berlin, July 13:���The foreign  office today denied energetically to  a reporter of the Associated Press  the statement contained in cable  dispatches from China to some London papers that baron von Kettler  caused his own death through his  harsh treatment of the natives.  NEWS FROM SOUTH AFRICA  ��� o  Boers Disguise Themselves.  London, July 14.���Lord Roberts  hasisent nothing further concerning  the Nitral's Nek affair. Pretoria  dispatches, however, show that the  Lineolnshires lost half of their  officers, including colonel Roberts  who was wounded and taken prisoner. The stragglers continue to  arrive at tho camp. No further  news can be learned. , The British  fought stubbornly until the night  fell, when the cavalry turned their  horses loose. The Boer account of  the engagement places the British  casualties at over 200.  In the Burdeport affair, mentioned in lord Roberts' dispatches,  the men in the front rank of the  Boers wore khaki uniforms and helmets, and the dragoons passed  them unsuspectingly, under the impression that they were Hussars.  The mistake was not discovered until the Boers opened a heavy fire  when the dragoons were within 400  feet.  . British prisoners who escaped to  Kroonstadt have reported- that  general Dewet's force of 10,000 nieii,  with ten guns, expelled from Bethlehem by general Clements and  general Paget, has taken up a  strong position 15 miles to the  southward in the hills around  Reteif Nek. President Steyn is reported to be with them.  Another case of the Boers wearing khaki, is reported to have happened at Lindley on June 26th,  when they surprised a picket of 25  men of the Yorkshire Light Infantry, 18 of Avhom were killed or  wounded.      ���   Grand Forks Debentures Sold.  Grand Porks, July 13.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���A civic issue of  $50,000 worth of debentures were  today sold at par to the Trusts  Guarantee Company of Toronto.

Coffee, president.aud general manager respectively of the guarantee company,  closed the deal today with mayor  Manley before leaving for Vancouver.      '  Will Not Seek Re-Election.  Vancouver, July 13.���[Special  to The Tribune].���From a source  that is generally well posted comes  the information that Hewitt Bostock will not stand -for re-election  for the commons from Yale-Cariboo. The reason given is that his  private business interests are being  neglected, and that his longer continuance in politics is out of the  question. The real reason is that  he feels that- the Laurier government has not kept faith with him  in the matter of the lieutenant-  governorship. ���-  these operators went to work as  usual and worked'until noon. When  they entered the" mill at 1 o'clock  the striking weavers attempted to  prevent them by force. They  failed in this and attempted to  carry the mill by storm. The operators inside made a spirited resistance and eventually drove the  attacking party; off. Then the mob  stoned the windows of the mill  facing the street. Two or three  people were injured, one woman  quite seriously.  BASEBALL   AND  FOOTBALL  Notes on Athletics.

Don't Like Englishmen.  . Valleyfield, Quebec, July 13.���  The weavers in the Empire mill of  the Montreal Cotton Company went  out on strike yesterday because of  the employment of an Englishman.

Spokane team to play here on the  21st and 22nd instant.  "The members of*the second  ball eleven were out for  foot-  were out for practice  last night.

When the football team left  Slocan City Thursday they were  informed by various prominent  citizens that the action of the  Slocan City players had so disgusted the celebration committee  that, the $200 purse would probably  be cut iip.'among~'tue_visiting- teams  for expenses. Other counsels evidently prevailed for yesterday  secretary McAdam received a telegram from Slocan City . asking if  Nelson would play Silverton, Slocan  City and Sandon there on Monday  for the money or its equivalent in  prizes. The local* executive hurriedly met and declined the invitation. Even if the players could  afford the time, the team is chary  of any tournament in which the  Slocan City team pulls the strings.  The regular shoot of the gun  club takes place this afternoon at  the targets on the lake front below  Stanley street.  Secretary Forbes of the cricket  club says their net will be ready for  practice today probably. Once it  is set up there will be net practice  everyjrfternoon.  Rossland beat Stanford College  at Rossland yesterday by 12 runs  to 5.  ^_  Attempted Incendiarism in Paris.  Paris, July 13.���Inquiries are  being made into what may possibly  turn' out to have been a serious  attempt, to destroy the grand palace of the Champs Elysees on Wednesday night. A watchman of .the  cellars, which were filled with  packing cases and a large quantity  of other inflammable matter, overheard a conversation between two  men, leading him to believe that a  plot was on foot to set fire to tho  building. The men fled when it  was known he was coming. A  search next morning resulted in the  discovery of two sealed boxes filled  with black powder. The police believe the boxes, were left by workmen when they excavated the foundation of the building, or were hidden there by thieves who intended  recovering them later on.  'Shooting at Bisley.

He is due in Washington  about the middle of next month  when rhe -'���-���-'- -will " present' his  credentials to the . president.  Coming direct from the foreign  office, where he has been high in  authority, Mr. Takasina's" presence  in Washington will be most timely  in connection with- the Chinese  situation, as he is thoroughly conversant with that subject and with  the part which Japan proposes to  take in the rehabilitation of China.  having spent any considerable  amount of money anywhere in  town between noon and 3:30 p.m.  on Tuesday, July 3rd, when he was  last seen alive going in the direction  of the wharf.

Ro.ME, July 13.���The marquis  Visconti Venosra, minister of foreign affairs, replying today in the  chamber of deputies to an interpellation regarding the intentions  of the government as to Chiua,  said: "The cabinet has no political  intentions toward expansion or intrigue in China. Its programme is  to maintain perfect accord between  Italy and the other powers. Wo  cannot leave entirely to others the  protection of our home rights, nor  are we disinterested in the work of  mutual interests and civilization  which the powers are seeking to  carry out iu China."

The friends of the late Thomas  O'Brien, whose body was found in  the lake on Thursday morning, are  wondering why no inquest has been  held.

Nelson Wholesalers Organize.  The wholesalers of Nelson some  time ago decided to organize an  association for the protection of  their interests and in enhancement  of Nelson's position as a wholesale  center, aud last night they met at  the board of trade rooms and organized and elected officers. The  meeting was called at short notice,  so all the firms were not included,  but others have signified their intention of joining tho . association, which is called the Nelson  Wholesale Merchants' Association.  The following officers were elected :  President, P. Chapman, A. Macdonald & Co.; vice-president, R.  Robertson, J. Y. Griffin & Co.;  secretary, R. J. Hamilton, John  Cholditch & Co. After the election  of officers a long discussion ensued  on the best way to secure certain  concessions with regard to railway  rates which are necessary to enable  Nelson to fully utilize her natural  geographical position as a wholesale  center, and the matter was laid before F. W. Peters for submission to  headquarters. Those present included P. Chapman, R. Robertson, R. J.  Hamilton, Frank Gibbs, Louis  Hyde, Ferguson, G. E. C. Martin  and F. R. Stewart.  OPPOSITION TO THE BYLAWS  Comes From a Disaffected Element.  The   ratepayers   of   Nelson  aro  asked to endorse the issue of $76,000-'  in debentures, $15,000 of the money  to be used iu extending the waterworks system  of the city, $15,000  iu extending the electric lighting  system,   $20,000 in  extending the  sewer   system,   $20,000 for   street*'  improvements, aud $6000 for the  payment of a road-making plant.  A statement has been made of the  city's" financial   condition,    which*  shows that every dollar so far ex-���  pended on public works is prodiic���"  ing revenue;   a showing  that no  ,  other cifcy   in  Canada can   make?. \  But notwithstanding this showing, ,'  the newspaper mouthpiece of the :*  corporate interests that are secretly,  working   to    discredit   municipal .'-  ownership of public utilities, and,,  of the cheap fakirs and transient %  peddlers   that   infest    prosperous,  towns and of the disgruntled element that can be found in every  community; a newspaper that has ,  never been right on any question "  since it has passed into the control  -"  of an old gentleman who is in his ,"���  dotage, is so violently opposed to-' v.  the passage of the by-laws that "it '  ;  is defamatory and libelous in its   it  utterances.    This newspaper says' >",  that the purchase of the electric -   '  light   plant   by" the  eity   was'   a -  swindle ; -in other words, that ex-   ���*-  aldermen W. F. Teetzel, John" J.    *5  Malone, James A.  Gilker,  Thomas,  Madden, E. P. Whalley and Charles    -  Hillyer, and mayor John Houston/'~*  are swindlers; that when in office   ^  in 1898 they violated their oaths of,  office.   This is a serious charge, but -  it   is not made   by a responsible  newspaper.   -It is made-by a news-   "  paper that is wholly irresponsible; -t  by one whose editor is controlled <��� ,  by a ��� gang of politicians .who are   *  invariably defeated by the people,   -_  and who cannot take defeat like,",  men. - r  -���   . y  Nelson   owns   its   electric .light   ���**<  plaut.      Rossland's .electric   light ~ ?���  plant is owned by the West Koote- ''��i  nay   Power. &. Light    Company,-;^  .which is doing its utmost to effect ���'.  an entrance into'Nelson, ":in'which"  effort it has  the assistance of the    *  Nelson Electric Tramway Company.  The .rate   for electric lighting  in   ���  Nelson is on an average 25 per cent _  lower than at Rossland.    In Nelson  the   lighting system pays  10 per  cent profit after paying all fixed  charges.   This profit goes into the  city treasury, and the   people of  Nelson  get  the  benefit  of  it.    Iu  Rossland whatever profit is derived  goes into the pockets of sir Charles    -  Ross of Scotland and his associates,  the   people   of   Rossland    getting  none of the benefits.   In Rosslaud  the rate of taxation is 2 per cent ou *  tiie assessed value of* real estate.  In  Nelson  the  rate  is  1 per cent.  This  is  one' of the results of the  "swindle" that W.  F. Teetzel  and  John J. Malone and James Ai'-" Gil- .  ker and Thomas Madden and E. P.  W'halley^and^Chafler'Hillyer and"  John   Houston committed   during  the   year   1898, when  they   weie  League Games.  Cleveland 1, Minneapolis 5.  New York 14, Brooklyn 1.  Pittsburg 8, Philadelphia 2.  Cincinnati 1, St. Louis 0.  Springfield 4, Providence S.  members of the city council.-  It was decided early this year to  macadamize Baker and other  streets on which there is heavy  traffic, because of the condition of  these streets in the early spring  and fall, when they are almost impassable for traffic. Not a word of  dissent was heard from even the  truculent Miner when the work was  first commenced. Ono block has  been macadamized according to  specifications prepared by the city  engineer, au official that has been  lauded to the skies by the newspaper that is% now denouncing his  work as an experiment that' has  cost thousands of dollars. The  truth is that the block completed is  a piece of work that has not cost  the city an unnecessary dollar; it  happens to be a block that leads  directly to the only real estate that  the city owns within the business  portion of the town; a piece of real  estate on which is situate the fire  hall and the city offices. Ifc is a  block of a street whose frontage  for two blocks is assessed for.$lll,-  650, or a seventeenth of the total  of the city's assessed valuation.  This goes to show that it is an important side street, and it is one on  which there is heavy traffic.  But facts are not wanted by  those who are opposing the passage  of the bylaws. These people and  their organ are imbittered because  of successive defeats at the polls;  and they will never be happy, for  the majority of the people of Nelson have little use for them as individuals and nothing bnt distrust  for them collectively.

When the court   sentenced the  three Welland canal dynamiters to  life imprisonment, a chorus of approval went up from the Canadian  press   from  the   Atlantic to   the  Pacific.    This happened but a.few  weeks ago, but it has been sufficiently long for a very great change of  opinion.   Recent developments have  shown that the Domiuion may now  be called upon to observe a close  watch of the penitentiary in which  the  dynamiters are imprisoned, in  view of attempts to effect release  by    blowing   up   the   institution.  Public opinion'now leans to the conclusion that the court could have  simplified the matter by hanging  all three.  Having acquitted themselves so  well in South Africa the admirers  jafjCanadalslxolunteers^are^demand^  ing that a place be found for them  in the threatened Chinese trouble.

The grievance committee of  the Trades and Labor Council  have declared the Contractors  Lister and Kerr 1o be on the  unfair list, and all union men  and sympathizers are requested  to bear this in mind.  By Order of the Committee.  To t\\e Public.  Since the grievance committee of tho Trades  and Labor Council have seen lit to advertiso us  ai (what thoy call) " unfair." wu make this stato-  mont to show what led us to t his decision. Homo  four weeks ago we hired two first-class mechanics at the rato of $.''.75 per day of nino hours. At  that timo we were unable to procure) enough  first-class men to carry on our work. They hod  not worked long before a delegation of the Carpenters' Union waited on them, requesting them  to join the union. This they refused to do from  conscientious principles of their own, and stated  before the union their reasons, but at the same  timcjoll'ered to pay all union fees, inco the union,  plough they could not take an obligation which  compelled tliem to bo governed by a majority in  thoir treatment of other people. The result was  that after spreading many fal-sc reports about us  and without ever consulting us in'any way or  manner, or giving us any notice, tho union called  otfotir men. We havc refused to dischaige the  mechanics in question, and have not tho slightest  iutention of doing so, a? skilled mfchanics aro a  scarce commodity, even among theunion. Since  calling off our carpenters, they have done all in  their power, by fair means and foul, lo boycott  us, calling oit laborers, plasterers and painters,  using bribes of cash and promised work to 'irien  in our employ, threatening others for whom wc  arc working, and in some cases, we regret to soy  have not stopped short of lying. Our work, how  ever, has gone on as usual and wc have now a  full stall' of competent carpenters, plastercw,  brioklayors and painters, to wiiom we are paying,  in evory case, either union or moro than union  wages. For this the grievance OJinmittcc has  placed us on their unfair list (by whioh we sup.  pose they mean that they intond to deal unfairly  with' us), biit we leave it for an unprejudiced  public to decide who is unfair.
