London, July 24.���4 a. in.���The  Chiueso minister, sir Chili Lo Feng  Lull, has communicated to the press  the following despatch from Sheng,  director general of Chinese railways  and telegraphs and taotai of Shang-  Hai, dated Shang-Hai July 23:  "Information from Pekiu dated  July 18th says that the'Tsung Li  Yamen deputed Wan Jun, an under  secretary of the department to see  the foreign missionaries and he  found everyone well, the German  minister excepted. General Yung  Lu.is going to memorialize the  throne to send them all under  escort to Tien-Tsin in the hope that  the military operations will then  be stopped."  A. Shang-Hai   correspondent   of  the Daily Mail, telegraphing from  l<^ Shang-Hai on   July  22nd, says a  letter from Che-Foo in Shang Tung  has been received by a native functionary here containing the following passage:  "At the beginning of the month  ; the foreign missionaries made sev-  ' eral attempts to send messages out  of Pekin, but, thanks to the strict  watch kept on the city, the bearers  ���were all caughtand executed. On  the 4th instant only 400 foreigners,  much exhausted, were left alive in  Pekin, and one night, wheu the big  guns were incessantly fired, it was  known that all the legations and  the foreigners were finished, although pretended telegrams contradict the facts."  The St. Petersburg correspondent  of the Daily Mail asserts that there  are differences of opinion  in the  Russiau council" of war.    The minister of war, general Kouropatkin,  wished to send 100,000 men to clear  -  the rebels * out of Manchuria.'   Oh  the other hand, according to this  correspondent,    emperor   Nicholas  / Wished the operations to be limited  " '"^_'o the defence aud pacification of  the-   frontier districts.     "Let two  strong armies, one of the allies in  ���. the south, and the other, of the Russians   in the" north,   confront the  Chinese, and the rising," so the czar  '   is said to argue,  "would be bound  to collapse."  "We want no. conquests," he is  reported to have declared at the  conclusion of a sitting of the coun-  ' cil, "what we desire is to protect  our frontier and steer into smooth  - waters the Chinese ship of state,  now buffeted by the waves of  civilization."   ,  The Times editorially suggests  that Li Hung Chang is playing the  old game of the sublime porte by  putting forward proposals whicli  will appear in different degrees and  ways to different powers. It says :  "President McKiniey has been  ' asked to mediate and the request is  facilitated by the care which has  been taken in Washington not to   commit the, JJni ted ^States, jto^an y_  ���    very thorough going policy."  Indian troops are daily arriving  at Hong Kong. Three ' transports  reached there yesterday and two  others have left Hong Kong for  Taku. Reports from Canton say  fhe city is outwardly quiet, but  that there is a strong undercurrent  of unrest among the Chinese. Only  a few European ladies have left,  many still remaining.    '  There -is nothing further this  morning that throws any light upon  the mysterious situation... Two  urgent despatches were addressed  yesterday by the Chinese minister  to the Pekin government and to the  director of telegraphs, strongly  advocating the necessity of restoring telegraphic communication with  a view of enabling the powers to  obtain proof of the safety of the  foreign ministers.  Until such proof is secured no  one here is inclined to alter tbe  opinion of the governor of the province of Shan Tung. He always  has maintained an attitude of neutrality and has even leaned toward  positive friendship for the foreigners. He has from the first divided  ���jvithSheng, director of posts and  ^fcfegraphs at Shang-Hai, the disr  tfchiGjtfOn of being the only means of  .eomnjwication between Pekin and  ithe outside world. Therefore, it is  .extremely probable that he has  served in the s,aine capacity: in this  instance.  On the other hand if this dispatch  ���really came from Prince Tuan the  fact would be of great significance.  In the opinion of the officials here it  would indicate that this official  " either has been grossly misrepresented as to Jiis anti-foreign tendencies,  or that he is seeking to escape  responsibility for the outrages upon  foreigners, an action itself significant of a breaking up of the anti  foreign party, with each principal  looking out for himself.  Remey Going to Tien-Tsin.  Washington, July 23.���The bureau of navigation this morning received the following cablegram  from admiral Remey: "Taku, July  22.���Going to Tien-Tsin to look into  matters, leaving the senior officers.  Newark is going to Nagasaki for  docking."   UNITED STATES TO MEDIATE  Announcement Today.  Washington, July 23���The president has listened to the appeal of  the Chinese government transmitted by minister Wu and has signified his willingness to mediate between the imperial government and  the powers, but upon conditions  only which first must be met by  the Chinese government, The exact  nature of the terms proposed by  the state department cannot be  stated until tomorrow when it  is expected that publication  will be made of the text of the  Chinese appeal and of the president's, answer. It is known, however, that the answer is entirely  consistent with the statement of  principles laid down by secretary  Hay in his identical note*.to the  powers', and moreover it accepts as  truthfuh the Chinese statements  relative to," the safety of the foreign ministers at Pekin.  It would not, of course, be possible   to take even the initiative  steps towards mediation were either  party to the negotiations to entertain   openly   any distrust of ^the  accuracy of the statements of the  other.    There must be confidence  between them.   The United States'  answer does riot go to the length of  the French answer to a similar appeal   in   laying   down   conditions  which    the    Chinese   government  could   not -meet,' even if  so" disposed. ' "It actually -is   struggling  for   its   own   existence.     It  does,  however/ look to the immediate relief   of   the   foreign   ministers in  Pekin, and moreover, to the protection of ��� all foreigners, missionaries and traders in China, and to  the restoration of the order.   With  that much accomplished, the state  department feels that it can properly approach the powers with the  propositions for a   settlement for  what has occurred.  * The Chinese appeal came to secretary Hay yesterday through Mr.  Wu.   The secretary promptly telegraphed it to the president at Canton, and, after taking a full day for  its   consideration,   the   president's  answer'came this afternoon to the  state department.   It was put in  the proper diplomatic form, and a  _copy_delivered���to���minister-=Wu-r  who was to forward it to his own  government. ' The appeal and answer will be made public tomorrow.  The imperial edict made public  today   at  the   "state   department  shows that   the   imperial government has already taken the first  step toward doing what t"he United  States   requires   as   the   principal  condition,   in   enjoining  the viceroys, magistrates and leading men  to stop the disorders and'protect  foreigners.   The   government  will  await the result of this before proceeding further.   It is thought that  adverse criticism upon the action  of the   state department in   this  matter   will   be   heard from   Europe where the governments   are  acting upon the belief that all the  foreign   ministers   in Pekin   have  perished,    but   our     government,  nevertheless, regards its course as  the correct one. All of the European  governments have taken the stand  above indicated.  The last of the answers to secretary Hay's note reciting the Conger  message have come, and all of them  in terms polite and diplomatic express utter incredulity in the  authenticity of the Conger message.  Consul general Goodnow, himself  a man of good judgment, has also  cabled a warning to secretary Hay  against the acceptance of the message without confirmation. But the  state department has fully considered the message in all its  aspects, has carefully weighed the  numerous objections and suspicions  put forward here and in Europe,  and, without guaranteeing the  authenticity of the message, feels it  to be a matter of prime duty to act  upon the theory that it is genuine.  DEWET'S CLEVER STRATECY  Britishers Overdone.  London, July" 24.���The London  morning papers feel compelled to  recognize .general Dewet's cleverness of strategy in baffling all efforts to catch him while, constantly  harassing the British lines of communication. Only the scantiest de-  -tails-have-been^allowed-to come  through. Apparently when nightfall stopped the engagement with  colonel Broadwood, general Dewet's  forces divided into small parties,  one of which cut the railway and  captured the Highlanders, the  Boers afterwards reuniting at Rhenoster river. The latest advices  from Pretoria announce that general Stevenson's brigade has occupied Eland's river and that general  Hamilton has occupied Doornkraal.  Letters reaching London from  the British troops in Orange River  Colon y assert that both men and  horses are on short supplies and  out of condition for hard work. If  this is true there is little cause for  wonder at. the failure to capture  Dewet and at the apparent paralysis of operations.  American Athletes Dined.  Paris, July 23.���Commissioner  general Peck entertained at dinner  this evening the American athletes  who contested in the world's amateur championship contests in connection with, the Paris exposition.  The table was laid in the United  States national pavilion, which was  tastefully decorated. United States  ambassador Porter, consul general  Cowdie and many other guests were  present. -��� . ���  Portugal Pays the Award.  Washington, July 23.���The Delagoa Bay arbitration closed today  so far as Portugal was concerned,  by the announcement of the statement to the state department by  Senhorr Duarte that his government  had deposited the amount of the  award, about $3,500,000 with the  MURDERED BY A SMALL BOY  How Man Lin'Died.  Rossland, July 23.���The mystery  of the killing of Mali Lin, a Chinese  cook, who was found dead in the  kitchen of Mrs. Chenoweth on May  23rd, has been cleared up. Ernest,  the eight-year-old son of Mrs.  Chenoweth, has made a confession  that he fired the fatal shot. The  disclosure came about in the following manner:  Communication was maintained  by the local Chinese with the Victoria Chinese on the affair, and the  latter, seeing that no light' was  thrown on the matter by their  compatriots in Rossland, . hired  assistant superintendent', P. ��� K.  Ahearn of the Pirikerton agency of  Seattle.  He came to Rossland on Saturday  night last and conferred with officer  Raymer, who had this particular  case in hand. , The two men Avent  to Mrs. Chenoweth on Sunday last  and asked if they- could see her  son Ernest. The mother allowed  the child to go with the visitors,  and the story of the murder was  obtained from the lad. <������ He related  that there had been a disagreement  between * him and the Chinaman.  The deceased Mah Lin had laughed  at him, whereupon "the youngster  averred that he would shoot him.  This caused the Chinaman to  laugh again. The boy went into  his brother's room,' climbed over the  bed, got the gun and, climbing bock,  snapped it.1 It did not go off.  Again he held it on the Chinaman  and pulled the trigger, and this  time it went off and the Chinaman  fell face forward- on rthe floor and  died there.   - ���--,>' .  "He did not - laiigh any - more  then," said the boy, "and the doctor  at the inquest was .wrong, for. you  see he did not fall .backward." '  Then the gun was replaced from  where he had taken it. After this  the lad went out of' the back door  and, down the street to where a  house'* was' being removed. -The  detective and the officer --took .the,  lad to coroner Bowes before whom  he repeated the story of the killing.  The preliminary examination, ,of  the youug murderer will take place  tomorrow before the police court.  He seems so cool and so. collected  about the matter that it would,  seem that he does' riot realize the  enormity of his offence.    *  Contra Discounts, a Paris banking  institution with which the Portuguese government does business. It  will remain, for the British and  American claimants to arrange for  an equitable distribution of this  fund.   '       ?���'      "    .  Yellow Fever in Cuba.  Havana, July 23.���Yellow fever  has broken out in the barracks of  the Seventh' United States cavalry  and First United States infantry in  Pinar del Rio. There has been nine  deaths during the' present month,  and eleven!, cases are now under  treatment'in the hospitals.  APPEAL TO LABORING MEN  Air Should Organize.  Denver, July 23.���The executive  I'committee of the American Feder-  ation of Labor today issued an appeal to all wage workers to organ-"  ize and confederate.   It says:  "Throughout the country a  struggle is raging between the oppressor and; oppressed, the possessors of wealth and ��� the laborers;  concentration of ' industry and  wealth is ;the order of the  day: Everywhere the workers  must'-suffer disastrous results  unless they organize and federate  to protect anS promote their mutual  interests.   In.this combination and  ��� **i ** - *  concentration ofr wealth the possessors permit^rio sectional or state  lines to interfere ,with their power  and it therefore behooves the toilers!' the' wealth-producers', to unite  and   federate. -regardless   whether  ithey are located east, west, north or  , south'"; irrespective} of ��� sex, politics,  color or religion.'        ��'*  -_  *'The'*h'ope-rof the workers, the  prayer of all'our people,fdr justice  ^ and righ\ancPthe perpetuation of  republican* > institutions  .lies ~,in  organized labor.   Recognizing these  essential truth's,,the executive council of the American Federation of  "Labor appeals to all-wage 'workers  of   whatever, .^;trade,  or   calling  to j'Vvbrganhie .*v��ij*,u~nions _    where  such'" do'" not "'-"now exist? to  join'  those already'organized, to  form  unions and international unions of  their respective trades and callings  arid to affiliate in one common bond  of labor upon the broad platform  and under the proud banner of the  American Federation of Labor.  "In calling upon the workers to  unite and federate we aim to do no  one a wrong, but to establish justice for all."  Will Hob Interfere in Strike.  Ottawa, July 23.��� [Special to  The Tribune.]���The "Dominion government was applied to today to  send the government steamer  Quadra to put down the strike that  is in existence on the Fraser* river  among the fishermen who supply  the canneries with fish, and who  want higher prices. But as this is  a-matterwhicbrcoircerns the prov-  ince, the government has refused to  interfere.   Baron von Montcuffel Dead.  Berlin, July 23.���Baron von  Montcuffel, the distinguished Conservative statesman and member of  the reichstag, died today.  THE WAR IN THE TRANSVAAL  Two Minor Successes,  London, July 23.���The war oflice  has received a telegram from lord  Roberts, dated Pretoria, Sunday,  July 22nd, which repeats the news  contained in the telegram from  general Forestier-Walker, and continues :  "Methuen continued his march  after the occupation of Heckport  and engaged the enemy's rear  guard at Zindfontein on July 20th.  The casualties were one killed  and one wounded. Early on  Saturday he ., attacked the  enemy at Elephant's Nek and  completely, dispersed them, inflicting heavy loss. Our casualties were  slight. By these engagements Rust-  enburg has been relieved and Me-  thurie and Baden-Powell have joined  hands.  "Hunter reports that Bruce, Hamilton secured a strong position on  the Spitzray yesterday with a battery and the Cameron Highlanders  and 500 mounted men. The casualties were three of the Highlanders  killed, and captain Keith-Hamilton  of the Oxfords, captain Brown and  lieutenant Stuart and thirteen men  of the Camerons wounded."  AMERICA IS BEING FOOLED  Cunning Chinese Diplomats.  Berlin, July 23.���The German  government and press continue to  disbelief the assurances of the  Chinese authorities that the Pekin  legations are safe. Tho foreign  office surmises that the Conger dispatch was either sent about simultaneously with the dispatch of Dri  von Bergen, secretary of thej German legation, and sir Robert Hart,  but suppressed or was captured  from the messenger to whorii it was  en trusted and produced when calculated to create the desired effect  in Washington; or, on the other  .hand, that the whole dispatch was  concocted for the purpose'of deception with the aid of a cipher' somehow obtained.  United States ambassador White  said today that the latter theory  was quite plausible! For if the  -American legation had been captured and the records there seized,  the cipher key would likewise be  secured, and then it would be an  easy matter for anybody to do the  rest.  The German, government, considers it unlikely that, an advance  to Pekin would be feasible, before  September. ���._   ���   ,  The gov'erntnent is gratified, to  .find that the correspondence published ��� on the subject proves that  'Japan honestly intends to co-operate with the powers. On the other  hand, considerable disappointment  is expressed in official circles at the  tenor of the reports from Washington regarding American policy. On  this point the Berliner Tageblatt,  with evident inspiration, says:-  " The "Chinese have ��� already succeeded in creating differences of  opinion among the powers.' ��� The  government of the< United. States  seems determined thus., early,., to  occupy a separate standpoint within  the concert of the powers. As at  Taku the American admiral would  ���not join, so now * president McKiniey apparently means to oppose the  joint action of the powers aimed, at  the re-establishment of order in  tChina,-all of which proves* that the  Chinese are "indeed the most .cunning diplomatists in the Avorld."  Foreigners Going to Tien-Tsin.    ,  London, July 23���11 p. m���SirH.  Cartney, counsellor, and English  secretary to the Chinese legation in  London, asserted this evening tnat  the Pekin legations were safe and  about to proceed to Tien-Tsin.  COLD STEEL DID THE WORK   %'  Belief of Kumassi.      '  Fumsu, July 23.���The - Kumassi  relief column has just arrived from  Kumassi, which it left on July 17th,  bringing the old garrison���about  20 fairly fit men, 70 broken down  invalids   and    some    women   and  children in a pitiful condition.  The success of colonel Wilcocks  was due to his choice of a route not  suspected by the Ashantis, who  had concentrated in thousands  along the eastern route, but in  much smaller numbers along the  western route via Picci, which colonel Wilcocks adopted. Even as it  was, the Ashantis wero active, and  the roads knee deep in mud. Colonel Wilcocks took a couple of villages by bayonet charges.  Beyond Kwanda he found the  tribesmen in a strong position behind stockades. It was a large  war camp, with the chief commander of the Ashanti army���estimated at 4000 men. After a heavy  fire on both sides: for nearly an  hour, colonel Wilcocks ordered a  bayonet charge, aud the troops  rushed the thick bush, cheering,  vigorously. The Ashantis did not  wait for the bayonet, but fled in  confusion.  The casualties of colonel Wilcocks  were two officers wounded, two natives killed and seventeen wounded.  On finding Kumassi in such a terrible condition, colonel Wilcocks,  after cutting brush and burning  the bodies, placed the whole force  upon half rations, an arrangement  cheerfully borne. No opposition  was met on the return journey.  Justice to the Loyalists.  London, July 24.���A blue book  has been issued containing the  official correspondence with reference to the treatment of rebels in  South Africa. It contains an interesting note by sir Alfred Milner,  British   high   commissioner,   esti  mating the number of colonists who  joined the Boers at 15,000. Mr.  Chamberlain, secretary of state for  the colonies, lays down the rule  that there should be' no vindictive-  ness in the treatment of rebels, but  that justice to the ��� loyalists is an  obligation of duty and honor.  ��� Big Fire in St, Paul.  ��� St. Paul, Minnesota, July 23.���r  ��� Fire destroyed the St. Paul Storage  and Warehouse .

' Panama,  in Danger.   .  New, York, July,23.���According'  to a dispatch, to the Herald from  Panama the chief .officers of the  revolutionary- forces addressed a  letter under date of July, 14 to the  American consul here' and through  him to all the members of the consular corps, stating that they  wished to prevent Panama from  being the scene of warlike operations which would be disastrous to  lives and property. The rebel  leaders requested the consuls to use  their good offices to effect an  arrangement with the government  by wliich the latter's forces should  meet in battle outside of the city.  On receipt of this letter the - consuls  met to discuss the matter. They  resolved to appoint a committee,  composed--of-^the--Amei*ican���Eng--  lish and French consuls, to confer  with the governor and this committee laid the matter before general Alban, who is now in  charge of the government here.  General Alban told the consuls that  the forces under his command in  this department would defend the  city threatened by the revolutionary forces and would fight outside  its limits. Part of his forces, he  said, were already in convenient  locations for meeting the enemy.  Bates Going Up.  Victoria, July 23.���The demand  for ships to carry troops, coal and'  provisions to the Orient has sent  rates up. The four-masted schooner  Rimac was chartered today by Balfour, Guthrie <fc Co., to load wheat  for the United Kingdom at 145  shillings, or the option of loading  salmon at ��4 7s. 6d. This is ten  shillings higher than any previous  offer of the season.  No Gold at Nome.

' There are plenty of gold quartz  ledges on Perry creek. The ledges  are all free-milling gold quartz.  One of the most promising properties on the creek is the Badger and:  Red Mountain, owned by John  Sherwood. The Shakespeare, New  York Jewelry Shop, arid London  Treasury Box have also a great  showing of mineral. The ledges  are true fissures and run in a  straight line for over eleven miles:  It is the opinion ot practical mining  men that Perry creek will make a  great free gold camp.  It was during the year 1895 that  the first quartz location was made  by John Sherwood, and the following year a large number of locations were made.  On the Badger and Red mountain  Mr. Sherwood has performed a large  amount of development work, aud  has shown by his work the faith he  has in Perry creek. The' surface  deposits being composed chiefly of  decomposed rock and carbonates,  the mineral-bearing quartz being a  very soft formation as far as uncovered. The formation seems to  be granite and augite. The trend  of the main lead has a bearing of  about twenty degrees east of north,  and seems to cross the creek about  two miles above the old shaft.  Mr. Sherwood has run over 300  feet of tunnels and drifts on these  claims. The ledges have an average  width of from five to six feet,  gradually spreading out as depth is  obtained. Assay returns show  values from $20 to $180 in gold. Mr.  Sherwood has this year opened the  main ledge on the surface for a distance of 500 "feet, sank four shafts,  and the ledge has an average width  of eight feet:*" Work will.be continued through the winter. Cabins'  and buildings for the men will be  erected, and a quartz mill will be  placed on the property before the  snow comes.  This * claim is situated on Perry  creek, and has* several large leads  that run through the property. It  is a free gold proposition. During  the past month a force of men have  been employed doing' the annual  assessment work; and it is reported  that in sinking fifteen feet the gold  values in the ore more than  doubled.  The outlook for placer mining-on  Perry creek .during the present  year is exceptionally- bright. The  Perry Creek Placer Mining Company will work a number of  men, and arrangements are being  made to put in a "modern hydraulic  plant. A number of men left Fort  Steele on Wednesday to .work the  company's .property, which is situated near the falls.  We learn that many OAvners of  quartz claims will push the development of their property during-the  present yeaV, and some will continue  work during the winter. ��� This district will surely become a great  producer in quartz mining as >well  as a placer camp.  eigners have been massacred. I am  quite certain that the cable received by your government is genuine and was written by minister  Conger. I have several reasons for  believing so; but I cannot give my  reasons for my government would  not like to have me talk too much."  i _P_i *��_"___��_"SL'&��� ___���___"��_ g,ci"sr,fl��."g,g.'|g.,!��,g.'g"g^'S,g^'fc'g.,<.,^*i!; ���**����'a*a--��a'^'-a,a,^,^'>'>'->i-s*>^^'?!''-a>'^'^*>->i''>,a'>>-.  Kumassi Beached Just in Time.  London, July 23.���Advices just  received here say that colonel  Wilcocks, the commander of the  relief column in Ashanti, described  his entrance into Kumassi, July 15,  as presenting a scene of horror and  desolation, burned houses and putrid  bodies being visible on all sides. He  adds that the native soldiers' were  too weak to stand and that the  British officers thanked God for the  relief as a few days more, they  declared, would have seen the end.  Colonel Wilcocks left the garrison  well supplied with food and ammunition.        League Caracs.  "' New York 1, Pittsburg, 1 (two  innings���rain).  Chicago 5, Cleveland 0.

The steamer Riojun Maru, which  -sailedfrom Victoria yesterdayfis the  only vessel they have now in the  business. TJie Tosa Maru, which  was reported being measured in  Yokohama a short time ago, has  been taken to transport a quota of  Japan's army, and the Kinshiu  Maru has also been taken by - the  government to carry troops.  No steamer of this line is expected to arrive from the  Orient until the just departed  Riojun Maru returns in September  if, indeed, she is not. taken to  carry the little brown fighting men  from Hiroshima to Taku.

William  Warwick, ��� seaman, who deserted  from an English vessel was found  yesterday on an islet, off the south  coast where he had been for 20  days without food and a little  drinking water. When rescued he  was barely alive, and it will be  necessary to amputate both feet.  Believes Conger's Message.

Just before leaving Pekin  he   had a long conversation with  minister Conger, who, he said, is  very sure that the rising would not  amount to much.    "I cannot believe," he added, "that all the for-.  THE   GUNNER   IN   LUCK.  Fort Steolo Prospector.  John G. Devlin, representing  Nelson parties, was in town on  Wednesday and Thursday. He  just came down from the St. Mary's  country where he located four  claims, the lone, Clansman, Watsou  and Kelvin. The locations were  made on Pyramid creek. On the  lone he found between four and five  feet of high grade copper ore, and  further down and underneath this  'opening the ore is of the same  grade. In' speaking of the St.  Mary's country Mr. Devlin said:  That in all of his experience in the  new sections of the Province, covering a period of 15 years, he has  never seen such, surface- showings".  In its early stages West Kootenay  could never boast of such showings..  Mr: Devlin says there will undoubtedly be big mines opened up in that  section before long. He left for  Nelson on Thursday afternoon and  will return in a few days with four  or five experienced miners to develop the recently located claims.  Tree Planting by Cannon.  In the grounds of the duke of  Athol near Blair Castle in ��� Perthshire, Scotland, stands a very high  rocky crag, named Craigiebarns'. It  looked grim and bare in the. midst'  of beauty, and its owner thought  how much prettier it would look if  only trees, shrubs, etc., could be  planted in its nooks and crannies.  It was considered impossible" for  any one to scale its steep and  dangerous acclivities, and no other  way was thought of to get seed  sown. One day Alexander Nasmyth,  brother of the celebrated engineer,  paid a visit to the duke's grounds.  He was, shown the crag and also  informed of, the desire of the duke  regarding it. After some thought  he conceived how it could be accomplished.  . In passing the castle he noticed  two old cannon, which by consent  of the duke were called into requisition. Nasmyth next procured a  few small tin canisters, made to fit  the bore of the cannon ; these "were  filled with a variety of tree, shrub  and grass seeds.  "^Tlie^cahnbn wa"s~loaded-iin��� the"  usual'manner and fired at the rock  from all sides; the little canister  on striking the rock burst, scattering the seeds in all directions.  Many seeds were lost, but many  more fell into the ledges or cracks  where there was a little moss or  earth. These soon showed signs of  life, and in a few years graceful  trees and pretty climbing plants,  all sown by gunpowder, were growing and flourishing in nearly every  recess of the formerly bare gray  crag, clothing it with verdant  beauty.  i&D   CO  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  to  a-  i:'  i-  Special sale of Dress Goods, Millinery, Muslin, Prints, Lawns, Percales, Sateens, and Dimities  We will offer our entire stock of Summer Goods at special prices below cost.

Steevens, the correspondent  ' of the London Daily Mail at the  siege of Ladysmith, some of whose  belated dispatches '���_ are ' still" being  published, though he is dead, wrote  the following graphic account of a,  mad$harge of the Imperial Light  " * Horse:  "This force���about 500 mounted  . infantry, divided into six squadrons,  of which" one1 xva_- at "Estcoui't���  was mainly composed of Uitlanders  from the Rand. The men enlisted  mainly with a view to vengeance on  the Boers, and the regiment had already made itself as famous for  physical fitness and courage -iu the  iield as for self-sufficiency, and laxity out of it.  "They were a curious regiment.  , They appeared to consider that it  rested with themselves0 when tliey  rose in the -morning, and remonstrated loudly with the non-commissioned officers when, as rarely,  befell, they were ordered on fatigue.  *.  They grumbled about everything,'  ��� especially their food, being acus-  ���fcomed   to eat twenty-four hours'  ��� rations at a meal.  "They considered that no im-  ' perial officers knew anything. No  imperial troops could do anything.  ----They-considered���that^they-alone-  won Elandslaagte; and alone averted  disaster at Lombard's Kop.  "As for talk���never was there  such a corps to talk. The false  rumors originated and circulated  from their camp alone would have  kept a dozen American newspapers.  "Withal, they   were an honest,  ._ sober, and well-behaved lot of men.  They were as conspicuously clean  in camp as they were consistently  brave in action. And when a few  regular officers and sergeants were  imported among them, their discipline improved, evory hour.  He describes how, just after  lunch on November -3rd, blowing  horse, pale face, dashed up a trooper  of .the Light Horse to tlieir camp.  "Come out, chaps," he yelled:  "Stretchers, ambulance, water-  carts. Here, put white bands on  your arms, some of you, and come  out.. The men are falling like  ���sheep. I don't suppose there's one  ..of C. Squadron left alive!"  "Another blasted imperial muddle," growled a sergeant.    '  In* a moment the whole lines  were astir. Men were winding,  their putties, i-u shin g at horses  with saddles, rushing for white  handkerchiefs, tearing .them to  strips, tying them around arms,  mounting and spurring away.  I spurred too, sick at the thought  of another disaster to be chronicled.  There were shells falling from Bulwana, a little way off the road.  I cantered over a large bit of  cavalry country���a wide basin of  young grass with soft blue hills enclosing it���to a point at the far  end. On the right,.film blue, fantastically; carved, shimmered .the  .goblin castles of the Drakensberg.  ' Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters 'of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  Below the nearer hill, evidently  guarding the right flank, was a  .battery unlimbered and two cavalry1  regiments. Under a couple of  humpy hills to the left were lines  of moving horses; our volunteers  oh top were evidently guarding the  left. In-front, at the point of the  plain, on that white kopje, must be  the Boer position and the disaster.  I dismounted, by the guns, and  my horse fed greedily on the fresh  green. . -I -looked .through my  glasses and could see nothing���and  suddenly I saw the prettiest sight  in the world. ,',   ,    ���".    "  Up out of a dip in front of the  Boer kopje came tearing two squadrons of-mounted-men. * Belly, to*  earth, helter ' - skelter, - hell-f or;  leather they galloped, heads for-'  ward tliey came thundering in.   *  On the instant the Boer lines���  that empty,' silent white hill-^-spar-  kled into a crackle of rifle fire, as if  the whole * earthy was dry^Avood  blazing. " In that same instant our  own guns spoke, and guns on the  hoarse._ report banged down the  line and. back and back again till*  the kopje wore a coronet of snowy  shrapnel. All in a moment, and  then the scurrying riders, out of  range, drew rein, shook themselves  into order out> of tumult, dismounted, lay down and-began to  fire.  An instant's peace and then another whirlwind of maniac riders  came storming up the slope. Again -  the hill shot up in blazing flashes,  again the, guns- spouted white  shrapnel over the hill.  Then the madmen drew rein and  steadied into.line.  -���It*-all���rose^ out-of-^ the���prodigal*  valor of the Imperial Light Horsemen. The had ��� lost their colonel,  Fifth Lahcersj at Elandslaagte, and ���  now General Brocklehurst, the new  cavalry brigadier, had incautiously  given their new civilian commanding officer a free hand.  "I've heard your men were very  fine fellows, major," said he, "do  what you like."  The major, a heart naif lion half  tender women',.but no soldier���surveyed his two squadrons, sixty  strong apiece, and cast his eye towards the Boer position.  "Boys," said he, "load your guns.  You see that kopje, that's the Boer  laager.     We're going to  take; it.-  Right squadron go on, lef t in support."     :     \  There were at least 800 Boers on  the hill, and the job ,'iwas too tough  even for. the I. L. H. > Half a squadron, jibbed ; only thirty men started,*  led by a mine manager from the  Rand over sixty years of age. They  posted up the hill through a hail of.  fire till they got within 700 yards.  There, crouched" under  ant   hills,'  they could neither   go on nor get  back.'- '��� ;"���'���'������:"'_ '.���;'���  They cheerfully proposed to stay  there till night,v and. '. then; get  away���if the Boers let them.  The general sent a galloper of the  Fifth Dragoon Guards to tell them  to retire at all costs. The plucky-  fellow made a desperate ride and  gave his message. A squadron of  the same regiment went forward  and dismounted to cover them. The  result was what I saw, but of the  thirty that went up only twelve  came down.  The rest of the first saw the regiment well ordered, well covered-^-  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE.

It .was rapture to look at, like all  work well done, only now you must  be tired of hearing" of retirements.  At evening the guns caught the  Boers, pressing forward on an  exposed hill-top and dauched them  with' shrapnel again, but that also  you have heard much of.  "- The event of the day was the  splendid madness of the Thirty  Light Horsemen.  THE SULTANS CINCH.   The sultan of' Manitoba called to  his grand vizier one ,day and thus  spake: "I hear that all my vassals  are not satisfied with the recent  edict ordering that no one shall eat  more than two meals .within the 24  hours. See that steps are taken at  once to inform the people that we-  know what is good for them better  than they, do themselves, and  though we our royal self intend to  eat our usual six meals a day, it is  not well, that common . people  should consume.more than'.two:"  The grand vizier said .to his secretary: '���Summon the council  forthwith."     -     .   .  "But," said the secretary, "you  ordered most of the council to be  beheaded '' because, they criticized  .the edict ordering every person to  part his haft- in the middle."  ��� '.'Dog, did I ask you any questions? Do as I bid you and summon the council that our lord ' the  -sultan-^-may���have���his���policy��� approved."  The council met, the grand vizier  presiding. " Are we all here/'' cried  he; " then call the roll." The roll  call disclosed the august presence  of the grand vizier, and his ' secretary, with a guard from' the light  horse at the door, whose instructions'were that if any scribe discovered the meeting place he was  to* be arrested. The password was  " If we are discovered'we are lost."  "Draw up a resolution," commanded the grand vizier, " setting  forth;the* virtues of my lord the  sultan, and a justification of his  policyi stating that/when ifc is  thoroughly -.understood tiie people  will understand how anxious the  sultan is for their health and comfort, and that if they feel ill at ease  for lack of the accustomed third  meal they are to consult a physician  who .will prescribe emergency food  for them���at a charge to be fixed  by the physician." ~  '"Ifc, is done; master," said the  secretary.    :'l./y'���':���;.'      :0 '���-  "Then promulgate ifc in the  name of the council, whose numbers  and respectability will exact full  acquiesehce in the sultan's edict."  "And should any one suggest,  that it's a put up job���'.'  " They are to be bastinadoed and  condemned as'heretical."  And all the people received the  message with joy and thanksgiving,  having long waited to be told what  a good government they had.    "  One of the Owners.  The following story is told of an  old Highlander who traveled many  miles to see one of the famous British battleships.   He found it at the  dock and at once boarded it and began to inspect. This finished, he  asked to see the admiral. He was  told the admiral was engaged. He  replied, "Tell the.admiral I want to  see liim."  ���His desires' were about to be  gratified and the Highlander was  asked, "Who shall we tell the admiral desires to see him ?"       ^   ,  He "straightened himself > up and  drew alongbreath���"Tell him oneof  the owners is on board.'' ���  ���  MESSAGE    OP    THE    TEA   CUPS.  NewvYork Press.  It would be hard to find a Chinaman who does not belong to at least  one secret society.'*' Often he belongs to several "Hui," and is active  in them'all, whether he lives within"  or without the boundaries of the  Flowery Kingdom: . These societies  are of all sorts, but the most influential of them have at heart expulsion of the Tartar" dynasty, to  which the present,emperpr belongs,  and . placing a ���. Chinaman, in his  place. From the.Chinese viewpoint  ,the emperor is a foreigner, though  his family have ruled for 350 years.  Such a period is only a moment in  Chinese chronology.  To some extent a Hui or, secret  society can "protect its* members  from the mandarin- and thus give  to them benefits such as the Chang  clansmen enjoy. Often it-does this  by blackmail. It convinces the  mandarin thafc so long, as he .does as  the Hui wishes the Hui will be  with bim, otherwise ifc will be  against him; it will create disturbances and see that reports of  these disturbances-reach the proper  officials in Pekin.' If the ' Hui is  powerful, the mandarin is rather a  mannikin, to which strings attach,  that parties with conflicting pur-  . poses pull in opposite directions.  Here are some of the signs, tests  and signals by which members of  the "Tien-Ti-Ji," one-of the oldest;  and greatest numei'ically of these  organizations, recognize each other  call for help.  One call for assistance in a fight  -is-to-hold-outthe-right^hand-with-  the palm outward. At the same  time put the left hand on the breast,  the thumb and fore-finger bent and  the others shut. To stop members  from fighting keep the left hand in  the same position .and turn the  palm of the right hand inward.  To give the sign for Heaven hold  out the right hand with the thumb  and fore-finger .bent, the other  three fingers straight, and the corresponding three fingers of the left  hand on the chest. For Earth, hold  out the right hand, with the thumb,  first and second fingers straight,  the other fingers bent and the lef t  hand on the breast, with fingers  bent in the same -manner. This sign  may mean also, "the dragon's head  head and Phoenix tail. The three  signs together mean, "I am of the  Heaven and Earth society, i. e., a  Triad.  One test question is to ask "Have  you had your hand pricked?" , The  member's reply is "yes," and at the  same time he holds his left hand  with the thumb nail pressed against  the second fingers at the spot where  he received the initiation prick.  The fore-finger should be level with  the thumb and the other finger  bent. The nearer to the palm is  the prick the higher is the rank of  the member. If the prick is in his  palm the member is of the highest  rank. ..".';' '������^������"1   ������    ' ������> ���  As a precaution in troublous times  like the present a member going  out on the street rolls up his right  sleeve or his right trouser leg, or  holds his right hand over his head  with three fingers spread out. Ho  may also let a corner of his jacket  hang down inside from his" neck by  unbuttoning the top button.  COINAGE   OF   SILVER.  Western Mining World.  Notwithstanding the great victory of gold over the silver advocates, ifc may be surprising to some  to learn that the coinage of silver  dollars in the United States mints  still continues; in fact for the  month of March last it was-$4,100,-  000, the largest monthly record, for  many a year, says the Boston News  Bureau. In 1895 the-addition to  our supply of cart-wheel dollars  was unimportant. In 1806. coinage  was resumed at the rate of 1,500,-  000 as a minimum up to 2,750,000  per month, or some 18,500,000 for  the year. In 1897 the coinage  ranged from 0 to 1,800,000 monthly,  aggregating about 13,000,000. The  year following the output was  about the same. In 1899 there was  an increase to 16,000,000, while for1  the first'five months of the current  year to June 1st, the new coinage  amounts to over 12,000,000.' On  June 1st last the treasury department estimated the number of  standard silver . dollars in this  country at 487,500,000, compared to  423,000,000 on June 1st, 1895, a gain  of 65,000.000, witih all indications  that the 500,000,000 mark will soon  be attained.

John McKane and Alexander  Dick, president and consulting engineer respectively of the Lavina-  Butte Consolidated, were in the  city yesterday,en route home after  a trip to their property, which is  located in the Lardo-Duncan district, eight miles back of Argenta..  The proposition is silver-lead and  1000 feet of work has been done,  divided between three tunnels. At  present a tunnel is being driven to  tap the vein at a depth of 400  feet. The outlook is very promising, so much so that a shipment  will be made within the next 30  days. The ore will go to the Hall  Mines smelter if the institution is  _running_by_that^time, Irucommon  with the owners of aU the properties in the Lardo-Duncan the  Lavina-Butte people are most anxious to have the railroad completed.  They say that the future of the  district depends on the road being  finished and would like to see the  road go ahead without further  delay.   Cut in Telephone Charges.  The local telephone company will  announce today a sweeping reduction in rates for the long distance  telephone service. Under the new  schedule the Spokane rate will be  50 cents for the first minute and 25  cents for each additional thirty  seconds or fraction thereof, a reduction of thirty cents on the former  rate. A much greater reduction is  made in the rates to Greenwood  and Grand Porks. The former rate  was $1.30 and $1.05 respectively for  the first minute, but these are now  reduced to 55 cents each, with 20  cents for each additional thirty  seconds or fraction thereof. The  rate to Rossland is reduced from 30  cents to 20 cents for the first  minnte with a corresponding reduction in the rate to Trail. The  company's officers are of the opinion that by making it cheaper to  talk there will be more of it.  THE WAY NOT TO PLAY BALL  Game Against Cranbrook.  There was another baseball game  yesterday, this time between Cranbrook and a scratch local team, of  whom only four belonged to the  regular nine. v. A; small crowd  watched the match^and if they did  not see much ball they certainly  had lots of fun. It was the most  amusing burlesque of baseball ever  seen in Nelson, not forgetting the  Bloomer game. The four regulars  played good ball, and MeLeod distinguished himself both behind and  at the bat. Of the others; the less  said the better. Nearly.all the  Nolson'; men, however, found the  C- -nbrook pitcher without any  d) 'oulty, and seemed to make runs  ���w.caevcr ithey wanted to. They  k- keri ip six in tl-.-* fourth and  e . ii�� he seventh, and tweuty-  tv. .. in the seven imings. The  Cj ������ ubrook mendld-'not seem to be  abta to play ball at all. They  could do nothing- with Warner, so  Rockenfield went into the box and  tossed them nice easy. ones, and  thus, with the help of the extraordinary fielding of some of the Nelson men, they knocked up thirteen  runs in seven innings. They then  dbi-liued to finish the match. They  recognized that they were completely .outclassed by the scratch  team and were tired of being  played with. The Cranbrook ball  players have mistaken their vocation. They should go home at1  once and stay there.  The offer of the Nelson lacrosse  club to the Medicine Hat team is  almost certain to be accepted, as  tho men frbin"the" prairie are most  anxious to make the trip. A flourishing athletic'association exists at  the Hat under the direction' of Dr.  Smith, and they would like to  bring their- baseball and gymnasium teams to Nelson when the lacrosse team - comes over. To even  up on expenses they would give a  concert at the; opera house. The  entertainment has made -to." hit at  other points., >S'-- *  Secretary .Forbes- of- the, cricket  club ' wishes, it to .be announced  that there will'be a practice at the  recreation-' grounds this.-.afternoon  at 4:30.
