NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING JULY 17 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  EVENTFUL HAIR SPLITTING  At Washington.  Washington, July 10.���TJie de-  ciaion of the administration afc the  end of a mosb eventful day is that  (lie United States government is  still not at war with the goveru-  nii'iit of China. The big happenings at Tien-Tsin coming on top of  the stories of the lasfc .struggles at  I'ekin have. not affected the attitude of the administration on this  -.���point. "TJie United States and  China are technically at peace.  ]Jut this statement should hot be  accepted as indicating a purpose on  the part of the United States gov-  c 1 nment to hold its Jiand in the administration of swift and adequate  punishment upon tho Chinese,  without   regard   to   station,   who  muy bo responsible, for'the outrages  of the past few weeks.  Ifc mpans simply thafc the government of the United States feels  i hat ifc can best achieve fchafc purpose by regarding the status officially as one of peace. To hold  otherwise would seriously cripple  the government in its efforts fco obtain satisfaction for the outrages  tho Americans in China liave suffered.  Chairman Cannon of the Jiouse  appropriation committee is authority for tho statement that money  in plenty is at the disposal of tiie.  president to meet the piesent  emergency, and tliat there is no  necessity for a called session of congress on that score.  The day was the most exciting  Washington has known since fche  battle of Santiago.. At the very beginning came Admiral Remey's  cablegram announcing the defeat of  1 lie allied forces at Tien-Tsin, and  then came the vivid Associated  Press account of the fight. A  special cabinet meeting was held on  receipt; of the news, witli such  members present as are in town.  Secretary Hay went so the White  ��� House immediately* after'the meeting and had a long talk with president McKiniey over the long distance telephono. It soon became  known that tiie president had derided thafc it would be best for him  to come back from Canton to tlio  national capital.  Ifc was suggested at tiie cabinet  meeting that an international conference be called hastily at one of  ihe capitals���London, Berlin, Paris  or Washington���to define the part  to be taken by each power aud the  quota of troops to be furnished by  ir, and to arrange for the selection  of a commander-in-chief of the  allied forces.  Tliis suggestion did nofc meet  with a favorable reception. It was  felfc by the cabinet that the United  S (ates should send the*, forces it  could dispose of to China, as far as  seemed necessary, and should not  make any agreement witli other  -powers-as-to=the=number.=���Fhis=de(v  cisiou involves the increase of the"  troops for China, and it was  gathered thafc the reinforcements  would be limited only by the ability  of the government to spare troops  from fchb3e commands now iu the  United States and,Cuba.  adjoining boarding house, crushing  the roof iu. Several firemen were  carried down with the roof and for  a time it was believed a number of  persons had perished. The inmates  of the boarding house are all  rescued. The damage amounts to  nearly $200,000. Henry Verhmeyer  & Co., proprietors of the broom  corn factory, estimate their loss at  $150,000 and J. Dreyfus & Co., furriers, at $30,000.  IT WAS A SHORT SESSION  Senate at it Again.  Ottawa, July 10.���[Special to  The Tribune]���The senate was afc ifc  agaiin today. C. N. Armstrong, of  Baie des Chaleurs fame, objected to  the sequestration clause of Blair's  railway amendment bill and subsequently the senate threw it oufc by  l.'�� fco 17. It also threw out a second  timo tlio clauso appointing three  judges for tho province of Quebec  in the Provincial Judges bill.  MacKenzie Bowell' led the  attack on Quebec, and the vote  stood 10 to 17. It was defeated by  a majority of 1. But this was nofc  all, it also defeated a clause in the  Dominion Elections bill which provided that qualified voters in unorganized districts would be entitled  to Arote at elections, there being no  lists. The Dominion Elections act  and Railway act were passed in a  mutilated condition. The Railway  Subsidies bill was also read a third  time.  '~ ���  Fire Started by Lightning.  Chicago, July 10.���Seven people  were injured, one fatally, by falling  walls in a fire caused by lightning  tonight at Michigan street and Dea-  born avenue. Of tbe injured; fireman Robert Meany, whose back was  broken, will die. The fire started  in a broom corn factory and spread  rapidly. Suddenly the walls of the  building   collapsed, falling  on   an  Chinese Washhouses.  Half an hour sufficed to dispose of  the business coming before the city  council last night. The session was  the shortest regular sitting of the  board for the year.  The board of works requested  aud secured further time to prepare  a report on the extension of the city  water main into Fairview.  The Dominion Day celebration  committee reported a deficit of  $107.34, and requested the council  to come to their assistance. The  $100 given as a special prize by the  city in the drilling contest was also  brought up and a motion to issue a  check covering both sums together  with the $500 originally granted  was unanimously adopted.  The Hume Hotel Company, Frank  Simpson, A. Lapointe, J. Blomberg  and other citizers protested against  Mr. Kilby leasing his premises on  Vernon sfcreefc to a Chinese laundry,  on the ground that the value of  their property would be depreciated and insurance rates increased.  The fact was evolved in discussion  that the city had the power to  regulate washhouses by confining  them to one particular district. The  petition was laid on the table for a  week, and mayor Houston was  authorized to confer with Mr. Kilby  on the matter.  A petition for a sidewalk on the  west side of Hall street from Vernon to Front street was received  and referred to the public works  committee.'.'/   ' " ".'."        ' **������   .  L. W. Kribs, secretary of the  building committee of the' Congregational church,- requested the  city to loan the corporation wheel  scrapers for the excavating, on the  site of the new church. The request was refused on the groimd  that it would be opposed to good  policy for the city to loan perishable plant to any person or institution.  A communication from the board  of trade requesting the council to  co-operate in extending an invitation to lord Minto to visit Nelson  on his proposed trip through the  province this summer, was laid" on  the table on the ground.that the  city's finances did not warrant the  council in urging the., governor-  general to visit; Nelson ab a considerable expense to the corporation. *  The members present at the  session^were'i^^^Mayolr^Hous^tWnT"  aldermen Arthur, Irvine, Wilson  and Morrison.  ATHLETIC SPORTS AT PARIS  Only Two Britishers Compete.  Paris, July 10.���The American  athletes continued winning victories at the international contests in  connection with the exposition this  afternoon. The crowd present was  the smallest which has yet attended  the games, and was mostly composed of Americans. As many foreigners stayed out of today's  events, there was less interest than  usual. manifested in the contests,  which were largely among the  Americans.  - A. G. Kraenzlein of fche university  of Pennsylvania Avon the first heat  in the 200 metres hurdle race very  easily in 25 seconds. Choisel, a  Frenchman, was second and George  Orton of the university of Pennsylvania third. N. G. Pritchard,  champion runner of India, defeated  Walter B. Tewksbury of the university of Pennsylvania in the  second heat in 20 4-5 seconds. T. B.  McLean of - the university of Pennsylvania was third. The final heat  was-almost a walkover for Kraenz-  lein, who finished a yard ahead of his  competitors. The race for place  was vigorously contested, however,  Pritchard again beating Tewkesbury, who finished third. Time, 25  2-5. Choisel also ran. Rau, German.  "the west end club proprietors  and brothel keepers have the  police directly under their control."  Mr. Burns cited individual instances, and ended by telling tho  home secretarj if he did nofc stop  this bribery the evil "would deepen  until we have a state of affairs in  London like what we have seen in  the, New York tenderloin, where a  chief inspector had earned ��10,000  a year by blackmailing gambling  dens and prostitutes."  SHOOTING AT THE RANGES  BAD NEWS CAUSED DISMAY  Seymour's Wounded.  London, July 16;.*-Tlie Associated  Press Tien-Tsin "despatch, announcing the repulse of the allies, was the  first news the foreign office Jiad received of the occurrence, and produced a feeling of dismay. William  St. John Broderick, the parlimen-N  tary secretary of the foreign office,  had leffc the office and repaired to  the house of commons to give a  rather satisfactory! account of the  operations at Tien-Tsin.    The seri-  Miscellaneous Mining News.  Work is being prosecuted steadily ou thevAlhambra group on  Eagle creek, recently bonded to F.  Burnett and L. L. Merrifield. W.  S werdfeger has several men sinking ou a ledge of oxidized quartz.  Tyvelve feet has been sunk on the  ledge, wliich is now two feet Avide  and improving Avith every shot.- A  thirty-foot; ledge of rich copper  carbonates has also been uncovered.  Samples of the ore are beiug  assayed now.  The opening of the smelter Avill  be followed almost immediately by  the resumption of Avork afc the Exchequer, aiid this fact accounts for  the inquiry for Exchequer stock  noted by local brokers during the  past few days. The dumps at the  property contain several hundred  tons of mixed ore whicli is ready  for shipment to the smelter when  the latter blows in.  Conspiring Vags Arrested.  Pretoria, July 10.���Three hundred and eighty vagrant foreigners have been arrested at Johannesburg in consequence of the discovery of a plot to create a riot aud  to join a Boer commando Avith  Avhich fchey have been in1 communication. The foreign consuls have  been notified; The suspects Avill be  liberated if they, the consuls, will  answer for their future behavior.  McGovern Won.  New York, July 10.���McGovern  won from Frank Erne . tonight  the third round.  in  Moloney of Chicago University and  William P. Remington of the University of Pennsylvania, who were  among the starters in the first trial  heat, and Tauzin, a Frenchman,  Levis of Syracuse and T. B. McLean  of the University of Pennsylvania,  contested in the second trial heat.  There Avere only four starters in  the final heat.  The three standing jumps Avas  easily an American event, the athletes from the United States quick-,  ly outjumping all the other competitors. The'same can he said of  tiie hop-step-and-jiuhp which fol-  loAved. Priucstein of the Syracuse  University: Connelly of Boston" and  Richard Sheldon of the N. Y. A. P.,  qualified for thefinalsand'jump-off.'  Princstein won ( though Connelly  pushed him hard. The same entries  competed in these two contests,  there being besides those already  mentioned, F. Jarvis of Princeton  University, Horton, also of Princeton ; John McLean of the University of Michigan; Staff, a Swede;  Steffen, a German and Koppan, a  Greek.  The 800 metres flat race brought  six men to the tape for the final  heat. Captain Cregan, of Princeton; David C. Hall, of Brown university; John Bray, of Williams  college: A. E. Tysoe, the English  champion half-mile runner; Spei-  del, a Hungarian, and Deloge, a  Frenchman.\ There was, great interest.manifested in this event, as  it Avas expected to be a hard congest betAveen Cregan, Deloge arid  Tysoe. Such proved to be the case  until near^the^stretch.^Avhen^Des,  loge collapsed, leaving Cregan  and Tysoe to fight it out.  Tysoe had the advantage of the  lead as he had in the running of the  entire race. Cregan ran gamely  bufc could not; overcome the. Britisher, who was a yard in advance  at the finish. Hall Avas third, some  distance back.  The standing long jump Avas  Avon by Ray Ewry of the N. Y. A. C.  Avith three metres, 21 centimetres.  I. K. Baxter of the university of  Pennsylvania Avas second with  three metres, 13�� centimoteres aud  Torchboeuf, a Frenchman, was third  Avith three metre?, three centimetres.  Tho Swedish team won fche tug of  Avar against the Frenchmen. The  Americans did not compete in this  event.   " , __^  Corruption in London.  London, July 16.���A sensation  has been made in parliament by a  statement of London's corruptness  by Samuel Smith, liberal member  for Flintshire, and John Burns, independent labor member for Batter-  sea. The allegations made by these  members, and home secretary Ridley did not deny them, showed conditions equal to any discovered by  the LexoAv or Mazet committees in  New York,- bribery of the police  dens apparently flourishing and  greatly on the increase, especially  in the wesfc end. Degraded criminals, Mr. Burns declared, who were  cleared out in 1898, are re-establishing themselves in large numbers  in the metropolis, aud he offered to  shoAV sir Matthew White Ridley  west end haunts "where bestial  form of vice of eastern origin is  taking root."   He also asserted that  pus import of the Associated Press  despatch- Avas immediately sent  after him.  Regarding the eventual resolution  of the crisis arid the length of time  .the troops, would .take to reach  Pekin there was ��� no idea iri the  minds of the British officials. "All  we can do," said one of the-most  responsible officials, "is to hope for  the best and pray that Japan's  troops may move quickly. Nothing  has passed regarding the general  situation of the powers since we  agreed to ask Japan to do the major  part of the' work,- and nothing is  likely to be done unless "a repetition  of today's bad news compels every  power to send ' proportionate reinforcements.";.  " With reference to the Tien-Tsin  dispatch to the"Associated Press  quoting fche. complaints of -British  refugees, the foreign office informed  the -Associated-'Press that no instructions had'..'.bp,ei*��� issued .to admiral Seymour not to.take on board  British'subjects. Iri fact-all his instructions implied otherwise, and  they Avere unable to understand the  conditions reported.  The government discredits the  report that in the retreat of the  Pekin column admiral Seymour's  wounded were killed by their comrades, in order that they might not  bo tortured by the Chinese.  STATISTICS   FROM   INDIA,  Rainfall Increases.  London, July 10.���The governor  of Bombay telegraphs fco the secretary of state for. India that there  Avere 9928 cases of cholera in the  famine districts during the week  ending July 7fch, of wliich 0474  =Avere=fatalrand=that=in^tIie-=native=  states there Avere 9526 eases, of  Avliich 5892 Avere fatal. The total  number of deaths on the relief  works Avas 5780, Avhich was 3.9 per  1000. There has beeii a good rainfall in Surat, Khandersh and the  Avestern part of the Deccan, and  rain has begun in parts of northern  Gujurat, where the numbers demanding relief continue to increase.  The viceroy of India, lord Curzon  Kedleston, telegraphs that there  Avere heavier general rains lasfc week  in Berar, and tho central provinces  of Hyderabad. The rainfall Avas  good and sufficient; for present needs  in Rajputana. In central India fche  rain Avas moderate generally. The  sowing of crops has partly commenced. The monsoon Avas heavy  in Surat and there Avere good falls  in Kattywar and TJian. There has  been insufficient rain on the Punjab  for dry land soAving.  Notwithstanding the improved  prospects, no diminution of relief is  possible. On the contrary, the  figures last Aveek Avere the highest  reached so far. Village relief and  advances of grain are replacing the  relief works. The condition of the  surviving cattle in Avestern India is  deplorable. The health returns  from the central provinces are  satisfactory. The total number receiving relief last Aveek Avas  6,148,000.   Iron Miners Strike.  Neav York, July 10.���A thousand  men employed in the Morris county,  New Jersey, iron mines struck today against a reduction of wages.  The mines are under guards of  deputies.  Notes on Athletics.  SeA'eral riflemen shot over the  "ranges on Sunday, the score being:  MeLeod 88, McKenzie 87, Tinkus 80,  and Burden 73. Mr. Tinkus is a  new member of the association and  promises to be a strong addition.  Sunday Avas his first experience at  the ranges, his last experience being with the old Enfield.  The riflemen are now discussing  the advisability of holding an inter-  club match. It has been suggested  that the benedicts should shoot  against the bachelors, and if the  latter are agreeable the match can  be arranged in ten minutes. .Failing  this it is proposed to have the members residing east of Ward street  fire against those living west of  Ward, Avhich would result in a very  equal division of the best marksmen.  G. A. Phillips, secretary of the  association, has Avritten to Victoria  to secure particulars of the B. C. R.  A. Avith a vieAv to having several of  Nelson's best men complete there  for places on the provincial team  for the D. R. A. matches at OttaAva.  No official information is to hand as  yefc.  Nelson marksmen are following  fche record of staff-sergeant J. Mc-  Vittie of the 48th Highlanders,  Toronto, in the matches afc Bisley,  England, because of the fact that  the Highlander's father, R. McVib-  tie, is noAV a resident of this city.  McVittie senior Avas among the  foremost British shots a decade or  two ago and competed AA'ith honor  and profit to himself in all the big  English and international events.  Staff-sergeant McVittie has been  quite successful at Bisley this year,  his last win being fourth money,  =��10, in the Prince of AVales' match.  sentatives in Washington accepted  as practically certain that the foreign legations and ministers at  Pekin have been Aviped out., At  the same time, there is not a word  confirmatory from any of the foreign offices, and the conclusion is  based on the accumulating unofficial data that the slaughter occurred about July Oth or 7th. Even  among the high Chinese officials  hope has been given up, but they  maintain that there is no official  information and they are as much  in the dark as others.  ARLINGTON LOOKING WELL  SITUATION GROWING WORSE  The annual tennis tournament  opened at the Nelson club's courts  yesterday afternoon. The matches  played in the preliminary round  were keenly contested. The result  so far folloAvs:  * Men's singles.���G. Williamson defeated H. W. F.. Pollok' 0���1,.7���5 ;  F. M. Macrae defeated P. diddle  6���0, 0���0.  Handicap singles.���F. M. Macrae  minus 30, defeated C. B. Winter  plus 15, 8���0.  Mixed doubles.���Mrs. Pollok and  G. Williamson defeated Miss Hammond and Sterling, 0���2, 0���3 ; Mrs.  Bird and Si. Crickmay defeated  Miss Bensusan and II. W. F. Pollok,  0���4, 0-3.  TJie other preliminary ties Avill  be played today aud tomorrow, the  understanding being that the first  round is to be completed by Wednesday night.  All lacrosse players are specially  requested to attend a meeting at  the firehall tomorroAV eveniug at 8  o'clock! The Medicine Hat team  haA'e have Avritten suggesting a  game, and a number of the local  ontluisiasts_arc_anxious^tO-accom^  modate them. If the meeting tomorrow night is Avell attended a  strong effort will be made to keep  the national game alive over the  season.  Those avIio enjoy a lively football  game should drop in at the recreation grounds tonight and see the  match between tho married and  single members of the club. Each  team has strong players, and tho  match should be a close one. The  grounds AA'ere occupied by foofcball-  ists last night, twenty-two members of the club turning oufc for  practice. Sides were chosen, and a  lively game ensued. The second  eleven recently formed Avas out in  strong force. A number of players  who have not beeu picked for  either of fche tnvo teams are looking  for some one to take the initiative  in forming a third eleven from the  forty or so remaining members of  the club.           The intermediate baseball club  was organized at the firehall lasfc  night, a number of the younger  baseballists being iu attendance.  Officers were elected as follows:  Mayor Houston, president; C. A.  Waterman, manager; F! J. Whitfcit,  secretary; Harry McBeath, treasurer. The club colors will be gray  and red, and the practice nights  are Wednesday and Friday. The  secretary Avas instructed to correspond Avitli a Rossland junior team  for the purpose of arranging a  game at an early date. Another  meeting takes place on Thursday  night.  All Hope is Given Up.  Washington, July 10.���Without  exception today tho foreign repre-  Shang-Hai Threatened.  London, July 17.���3:53 a;m.'���Up  to this hour there has been no further news  received regarding the  reported massacre at Pekin from  any sources at the house of commons last evening, beyond an admission that there was no ground  for hoping the report was not true.  William St. John Broderick, parliamentary secretary to the foreign  office, had nothing to'communicate.  An unusual   hush   fell   upon   the  chamber when the subject came up.  A few members ' doffed their hats,  but otherwise there was no demonstration.  No question was put to lord  Salisbury in the house of lords,  probably by a preconcerted arrangement, ifc being considered that at  the present stage of affairs it would  be only embarrassing to force the  premier to make a statement.  Telegrams from Shang-Hai and  Che-Foo indicate an increasingly  serious state.of affairs. It i.s alleged  that the foreign consuls at Shang-  Hai have cabled their governments  that there is urgent need of more  Avarships to protect that -port,  owing.to the menacing attitude of  the Chinese and .the temptation to  loot the vast storesof merchandise  recently accumulated' there. It  seems that the Chinese have already  have,threatened to- fire-rthe ��� great  oil'tanks on the ���Pao~Tun"g~'JBide-'of  the city.  From Che-Foo comes the report  that the entire adult male population of the three provinces of- Chi  Li, Shang Si and Shang Tung, are  massing to*defend Pekiri, in the conviction that the poAvers mean war.  There is little doubt that a further  check of the allies at Tien-Tsin  would be the signal for a general  anti - foreign rising ' throughout  Cliina.  The Japanese officers are still confident of their ability to reach Pekin before the roads become impassable, but the European commanders believe au advance will be  impossible before September. Fighting is said to be imminent at New-  Clrwang AvJiere the Boxers are  tlireatening the foreign settlement.  The Russians have .barricaded the  streets,aud loophoIed-the^houses^oL  the foreigners. The bank officials  have removed their valuables to  Port; Arthur.  Perhaps the most serious arhong  the many reports from Shang-Hai  is fche rumor that since the massacre afc Pekin fh*e Chinese regiments  have been ordered south with instructions to make Ching Hang Po,  at the head of the great canal, the  objective point for the southward  extension of the Boxer movement;.  The Times says ifc is taken for  granted in diplomatic circles thafc  when the Chinese crisis is settled  Great Britain Avill retain the right  to nominate fche inspector of Chinese customs.

Sketch of thft Development.  That the Hastings (B. C.) Exploration "Syndicate is working a mine  out of the Arlington property, near  Erie, is shown by the report of the  directors Avhich has just been issued  and Avhich describes the company's  operations up to June 25th.  The directors of this company, in  their report, state that since the last .  ordinary general meeting, held on  May 29th, 1899, extraordinary general meetings were held this year  for the purpose of altering the articles of  association, by   which the  rights of the 3000 "B" shares issued  to the proriioter were modified to  the rights of the "A" shares.   There  is now, therefore, only one class of  shares ranking equally in   all re--*  spects.   An issue of 16,500 shares  was  made on February 26th last.  These shares were all applied for  and are 5s. paid up. The total issued  .  capital therefore is   now ��50,000..  In addition to the money in hand,"  as shown on the balance .sheet, ,_a '  sura of ��12,375 has.yet to be called' _]  up on the said 10,500 shares.      ���- '- -  The" development   work   on the  Arlington   claim during  the past  .  year has been earned on with great  activity.   At' the 382-foofc leATel in  the  incline shaft, the south drive-  has been carried a distance of 322A  feet, on the course of the vein, and  two   upraises   have   been   startedi ���  from this level, both in ore.   The,-  .north    drive   has    been   similarly  carried along the course of the vein  for a distance of 113 feet.   An up-'"  raise in this drive has been made  for 132 feet, and a second one has  '"  been commenced.    It .will be recol-^  lected that at tbe 382-fopfc level,a  fault Avas encountered in the A*ein, x.  which  was not  rediscovered; until ,'  December last,  when, afc, 100 feet,. \  above  the bottom ;'of  the   incline "A  shaft, the vein Avas again disclosed,- *  showing a strong body of rich ore.- -  In order to make sure that this was ���,  -the only faulfc,-ifcAvas-determined to--^  run a tunnel from fche side of ~ the'  bill to connect Avifch the bottom of _  the incline shaft,  and to cut the**'  vein  in   passing.     This   has   been v  effectually carried out. *    *  This tunnel, which AA'as started in ".  December, 1899, from the Arlington  Fraction Claim, on side of the hill.  isknoAvn as the No. 1 tunnel, and is in ,  a length of 750 feet. It Avill be most1  advantageous to the future Avorking of this property, as it will not  only drain the mine Avithout the  necessity of pumping, but Avill saAre  the great expense of hauling the ore  up the incline shaft. Ore was encountered on March 1st, 1900, 220  feefc from the month of the tunnel,  Avhicli there is little doubt is the  continuation of tiie Arliugton A'ein.  A second tunnel known as the No. 2  (or intermediate) tunnel, was start-  =ed=from=the-original=claim,-100-feefc=���  loAver doAvn the hill, to cut; the Arliugton vein afc thafc level, and ore  Avas discoA'ered on April 20th, 300  in; and again, on June 1st, at 400  feet from the mouth, another vein  was struck, showing one foot of ore,  assaying ��30 in gold, and the manager informs us that in his opinion  this is the Arlington vein.  From these developments ifc will  be seen that there are a A'ery considerable number of tons of backs  to be taken out Avhen stoping is  commenced, in addition to the ore  on dump, and all that lies to be extracted from the surface and the  382-foot level. Arrangements are  being made as rapidly as possible  to ensure steady shipments of ore  to the smelter at au early date,  after Avhich regular returns may bo  looked for.  The developments on the MicaAv-  ber claim chiefly consist of surface  Avork by means of open cuts and  tunnels.    One hundred and sixty-  five tons of ore had been shipped  from this claim up to March 27th  last,  realizing   about $10,000,  and  another 150 tons of the same class  of ore are ready to;be taken oufc as  soon as freighting arrangements are  completed.    On the other claims acquired by the syndicate comprising  the Arlington   group,   very   little  prospecting  work   has  beeu done,  but an open cut on the Original has '  disclosed   what appears   to   be   a  strong vein.

'��� - To-moii iioav   the   ratepayers   of  Nelson wil decide  whether  public  ���\ works undertaken at the beginning  '���-"of the year shall be completed and  " paid for, or whetlier all Avork will  '.be suspeiided and a debt be turned  :. over to the council of next year to  ���. liquidate.     The   work undertaken  was asked for by the people, and it  cannot be shown Avhere there. has  either ber-a extravagance or Avaste  in the wo k so far done.     The eity  of Nelson is groAving, and'its public  Avorks mu st keep at least abreast  with fche requirements of the people.  In order r.o do this money must be  "'borrowed from time to time.     The  _ waterworks    system     cannot,    at  present, be extended wholly on the  earnings nf   the system;   nor can,  the elect) ic light works.     Bufc as  long as  the  expenditures  on  con-  ��� struction   account   are   kept   Avell  .   Avithin tho amounts borroAved, the  people cannot have any just cause  for compliant.   Providing the sums  asked forby\the council are voted  on Wednesday, the city will have  issued;    debentures     aggregating  $158,1.59.32 on account of constructing  the   electric light and water  systems of the city.   Has  the cifcy  value for this debenture indebtedness?   Unless the electric light and  water     systems     were     earning  money,    t,hey    would    be   worth  just what  the    material   used   in  their construction would bring as  second-hand machinery and material.    But they are both going concerns and are earning money.    For  the past six months of this  year,  the receipts from water rates aggregated $6775.10, and from electric light rates $10,322.07, or a total  of $17,097.17, which is equal to $34,-  194.34.  .Deductingthe cost of operating   and   maintaining . the-;two  systems, which was $2141.81    for  the first s-ix months of the year, or  at the rate of '$4903.86.f6r the year,  leaves : ,$29,290.48.      The   interest  charges on the debenture, debt is  $7907.96   and    the    sinking   fund  '.charges';'.'.'$'6326.87,    or     a     total  of   $14,2:4.33.    This     leaves   the  city a   net   profit    of. $15,056.15  for the year on a borrowed money  investment of $158,159.32.     What  other city in Canada can make a  better showing? It shows that the  men A\iio purchased the water system in 1S9S acted in the best interests of the people, and the best  interests of the people Avill be  helped forward, and Nelson Avill be  kept in the front rank of the progressive towns of Canada.  This year the council purchased  a road-making plant at a cost of  $5200,   and   no    single    ratepas'er  made  objection  to    the  purchase,  because every, person Avho has  the  best interests of the city afc heart  favored permanently improving the  business streets of the city. Besides  purchasing the road-making plant,  contracts   Avere    made   for   stone  curbing and street; crossings.   No  one objected to these  contracts being made,  for the   contract  price  was considered a low one.   As soon  as the road-making plant  was received, work  AA'as "commenced, and  the only block that A\*as  then in  shape to be permanently  improved  Avas macadamized under plans  and  specifications prepared by the city  engineer.    While the Avork was in  progress no one objected, as ifc AA'as  apparent to   every   one who  wit-  nessed the work that the men  engaged Avere earning the Avages paid  them.    Counting the amount  paid  on    the    road-making   plant,   the  amount paid  the   contractors for  curbing and flagging, and fche sums  paid for Avages for  macadamizing  Josephine street   and  getting  out  rock for  work contemplated, $10,-  000  have  been expended,    lt Avas  well known that this money must  be raised by the sale of debentures;  yet there are people in Nelson  Avho  are opposed to this means of raising  the money needed to pay the city's  obligations.    We maintain that the  reputation of the city is  at" stake.  The council have  incurred indebtedness  in  order  to  carry on work  that  was  urgently  needed;   work  that the people asked for.    Why  then, should fair-minded taxpayers  be swayed from doing their duty  to the city? Will they be so swayed  merely   to   satisfy   the    few   disgruntled people Avho' through, political and personal dislike for mayor  Houston are opposing the passage  of the  street loan and other bylaws ?   We do not think they will.  When the work of macadamizing  Avas commenced on Josephine street  work could not have been carried  on on Baker street owing to the  building operations then in progress, besides all water, sewer and  gas connections Avere made on Josephine street. These AArere the reasons that governed the council in  ordering the work done. Of course,  these reasons will .not be . accepted  as good ones |by the men avIio are  opposing the by-laAvs. ' No reasons  would be good ones Avith these men,  because they belong to the class of  men Avho are mossbacks by nature  and enviously mean- by tempera-  ~menfc !

Tho trouble Avith tho people of  the Coast is, and the newspapers of  the Cosist reflect; their wishes, that  they Avaufc to dominate not only  the politics of the whole province,  but the Avhole of the trade of the  province as well. Every tub, including the tubs on the Coast, must  from this time on stand on its oavu  bottom.   The Vancouver World has returned to its old-time love. It is no  longer the organ of the ex-IIon.  Joseph Martin. It is the organ of  Hon. J. II. Turner and Hon. D. M.  Eberts, both of Avhom are holding  down seats in Hon. James Duns-  muir's government. The World is  now managed by J. C.

In. other words, the  people of Nelson would Avelcome  theadvenfc of a competitor in the  business in which they are all  directly interested. We are of  opinion that the fool-killer should  pay the editorial office.of the Miner  a visib, and interview the genial old  mail whose foolish utterances are  making the Miner the laughing  stock of the community.  Ex-alderman Fletcher and his  friends are fighting to defeat; the  loan by-laws. Yefc the ex-alderraan's  name Avas signed to a petition that  was presented to the council last  night asking, that a public Avork  that would cost over $500 be done.  The ex-alderman is not consistent.  The.Coast papers are still harping about the trade of the , Kootenays being diverted to the Ameri-;  can side    The trade of the Kootenays does not go to the Coast, nor  does it go to the. American side.  The trade of the Kootenays, like  the trade of every other section of  Canada, goes to the best market.

In the matter of .the reconstruction of the Athabasca Company,  the articles of association of the  neAV company have been registered  at Somerset House. The title of  the new company is the same���the  Athabasca Gold Mine, Limited���and  the articles of association state that  it has been formed to acquire the  assets and liabilities of a company  Avith a similar title, incorporated in  1898. As Avas mentioned in the  former letter, the capital of the neAV  company is ��100,000,' in ��1 shares,  just one-half of the nominal capital  ,of the old company. By the reconstruction scheme, additional working capital Avill be obtained, which  ,Avill be used to erect further plant.  Settling in the Transvaal.

The resourceful Mr. Rhodes' scheme to induce  men to stay in Rhodesia is to give  each man a retainer of ��25 a year  for himself and ��12 for his horse,  ou condition that he stay in the  country and pledge himself to military service if called upon. Various mining and manufacturing  companies are backing up this  temptation by the offer of farms on  easy terms.  Miners' Union Day.  Rossland, July 16���Miners Union  Day Avas celebrated as a general  holiday today. All the labor unions  paraded fche city, nearly 700 being  in line, and marched to the ball  grounds. Speeches Avere delivered  by James O'Brien, president of the  Rossland Miners' Union; James  Wilkes, president of the District  Union; Smith Curtis, M. P. P.; Chris  Foley, member of the executive  board of fche Western Federation of  Miners, and Ed. Boyce, president of  that body. The afternoon was  occupied with athletic sports, the  most interesting of which was the  tug of war, in which miners, carpenters, Scotchmen aud. a picked up  team contested.' Inspired by. the  bag pipes the Scotchmen defeated  the picked team, but were beaten  by the miners in the final.  Delagoa Bay Bondholders.. . '    .

Railroad men of  J*J    all branches, who represent a laige  proportion  of our  population, are  solidly  union,  and  in  addition to  /^thef-e tho .majority, of other lines of  ""''";*>i;nde and labor in the city are now  ___  tfraniV.ed.  Unionism in St. Thomas,  i.'^/iii. a uuniber of lines, is yet in its.  i,f in fancy,, and even among the older  'V*  established organizations there sire  n:    jut some fundamental principles of  brotherhood, fraternity and union-  IV'  ism which they do not seem to have  fully   grasped.     Union-men   will  .r<i.mplain bitterly if non-union men  ���perform work belowthe union scale  ef prices,  and  work longer  hours  i hau .union men.    I have frequently  had complaints  reach. me of men  holding  a  regular  situation doing  ontside:work on their own account  after  hours,  to  the  detriment   of  men  whose   living   depends   upon  such   outside   work.      Those   Avho  patronize and employ cheap labor  in preference to union labor, come  in for severe denunciation by union  li-    nan.'  * -;:- *  .Now; I am going to. make a startling statement, and one which I do  not fear will be contradicted, because it is true. Union men, right  here in St. Thomas, habitually  patronize cheap, non-union labor, in  preference to well-paid labor. More  ���than that, they give their patronage  to aliens in preference to their own  countrymen. In short, they patronize Chinamen.  ������*���'���.   ������'������*���.:������'���'���.������'-*  ./  Tli^rc are white men, good citizens, who own property, pay taxes,  spend money like other white 'men  do in social, religious, business and  patriotic life, who spend money in  navel, in pleasure, in keeping up a  -respectable appearance, who .sup-  -porfc the educational* institutions,  ���who pay fair wages to white em-  ���ployees, who in turn circulate  imoney���there are white men, I say,  <wlio carry on tlio business of hum-  drying. Yet union men, and business men, with whom these white  laundrymen spend their money,  pass by the door of the white laundry to give their work'.to a.pack',of  dirty, heathen Chinese, from whose  ' pt esence in the city the city at large  or as a corporation, derives no  revenue worth . mentioning. Does,  that fairly exemplify the spirit of  1 rades unionism, or good citizen^  ship? I ask the union men of St.  "Thomas how they can reconcile  their patronage of the cheapest  kind of labor, to the detriment of  =whitemerrwho ijay^good^wagesyandh  circulate money, with the idea of  co-operative fraternal brotherhood?.  How can union men conscientiously  '-.iltiniand the best of. civilized remuneration and yet uphold detrimental  .cheap labor?  Here are some points for union  *"iu en to consider:. ���  - The white laundry pays a delivery boy a dollar a -day,''and. keeps a  horse and wagon, calls for your  laundry and delivers it, without extra charge.  You carry it to the Chinaman  yourself, and go after it when they  tell you it will be done.  The white laundry never loses  track of-your goods; if they do,  they make good the los3.  If you lose the Chinaman's  heathenish check, he stupidly shakes  his pigtail, and says unconcernedly:  '���No clieckee, nd washee."  White laundrymen in this city of  monthly payments give credit from  month to month for the convenience  of their customers necessitating  much book-keeping.  The Chinaman takes no such  trouble or risk, He wants his  money before   he hands   oyer his  parcel���and what's more, he gets it.  * * * -  There are also many poor women,  widows, or afflicted with shiftless,  ���worthless husbands, or hard-working husbands whose wages are in-  Hifncient to make both ends meet,  who are trying, faithfully and nobly  p-^ io make an honest living for themselves and dependent ones, by doing washing. Every time you give  your work to a Chinaman you are  depriving honest, struggling white ,  many  these  these  sleep,  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, IT.

It is  astonishing how many women patronize Chinamen. 1 suppose we  may attribute this to their love of  bargains, as the Chinamen* do their  work so cheaply. Let me show the  ladies of St. Thomas who patronize  Chinamen a picture which is not  overdrawn, and then let them think  seriously a few moments.  Have you never noticed what  little, stuffy, dingy cubby-holes the  Chinese--washermen invariably inhabit?  ���-:  Have you noticed how  sloppy-.' Chinamen inhabit  quarters?  Do you ever reflect that  fellows wash, iron, cook,  smoke, eat, sweat and live entirely  in these dark, squalid holes, like so  many rats in a sewer?    , " ���'-���'���  Do you ever think of the impurities pent up iu these poorly-ventilated shacks, into which the healthful sunlight never penetrates, and  where these sweating foreigners  toil day and night in steam "and  heat and foul odors?  Do Chinamen ever take a bath,  and if they do, is it pleasant to  think of them washing themselves  in the same tubs-as those in. which  your clothes are soaking ?  It has occurred in this city, to  my knowledge, that there was not  sleeping accommodation for all the  Chinamen herded together in one.of  these laundries, and what do you  think thoy did ���?." Just what, they  of ten do, especially these hot nights.  Piled the unwashed clothes, collected  f romall parts of the city and from all  conditions of people, into a corner,  aud sprawled, like animals, upon  the soiled linen.  It is bad enough for a refined  lady to think of her dainty underclothing being piled promiscuously  into a corner with those of some  vermin-infested, skin-diseased, unclean individual, but to have a  perspiring Chinaman sweltering upon them these hot nights���ugh !

Their own good sense should convince them that I speak the truth  in this matter earnestly, and with  a sincere desire for their own well-  being. I would as soon send my  clothing, or anybody's to a lazaretto or pest house to be laundried  as to a Chinese laundry. You may  argue tliat you have never heard of  a single case of disease of any kind  being transmitted in laundry from  a Chinese wash house. I cannot  say that I can instance a case,  . either, but that is due more to good  luck and the disinfecting qualities  of soap and boiling water'than to  any care on the part of the Chinese. Is it not rational to assume  that it is infinitely better to patronize a white laundry, all other rea-'  ^sonsyasideraud^e-assured^of'cleanT"  liness in the handling of your wearing apparel, even if it does cost you  a few cents "more each week? If  you have any complaint against a  white laundryman he is courteously  anxious to remedy the grievance;  if you-complain to a Chinaman he  straightway forgets his knowledge  of English, and "No sabe," is all the  satisfaction you can get out of him.  There are good-hearted but mistaken and misguided people in this  country and in this city who patronize Chinamen to encourage them  in the adoption of Christianity.  Don't do it. Their pretensions to  Christianity are a cloak to secure  patronage and learn the Euglish  language. Chinamen are shrewd,  despite their expressionless features,  but a genuine conversion to Christianity among them is rare. I overheard one of the local Sunday  school Chinamen swearing fluently  at some boys the other Sunday on  his way to Sunday school to study  the English language, which is  necessary in his business.  ,.' It may be urged that Chinamen  must live. Don't lose any sleep  over their living. They will live a  week cn what it costs you for one  good, square meal, and they will  always get plenty of custom which  white laundries do not find desirable. Give them your dirty work  if you will, but be as particular  about where the clothes which  cover your body are washed, as you  are about where the meat you eat  comes from. A lady's dainty garment of fine texture may look polished and clean and beautiful when  it comes from the Chinese laundry,  after it has lain in a pile of filthy  rags, slept on by a greasy Chinaman, and ' dampened by water  ejected over it from a Chinaman's  mouth; and so may a pork chop  look tempting and inviting on the  breakfast plate, although only the  day before it may have been part  of a hog wallowing in the filthy  mire of a slaughter house.  This is no time to be sentimental  over the "heathen Chinee."   They  are not wasting sentiment upon" our  white   countrymen   and   countrywomen in China   at  the  present  time.   People will read with horror  and indignation of the butchery of  missionaries, men and women, and  their families, by, the barbarians, of  China, of the streets of Pekin running rivers' of Christian blood, and  then   deliberately   lay   down   the  paper, pass by the door of a hardworking   washerwoman   or   of   a  white laundryman,   and smilingly  hand their work to a brother of the  fiends . who   are butchering white  men and women in China.   These  Chinese are here; we can't help that  now, butlet them make the best it.  "We are not called upon to fill their  coffers so that they may be enabled  to return to 'China to swell   the  savage chorus of "Kill the foreign  devils,"   which   is    now   sounding  hideously   in   the -ears   of   dying  Christians in the land of Oriental  fanatics.  Union men, be true to your principles, or else cease to. prate of  unionism.  . Business men, patronize those  who patronize ��� you. How" much  furniture, hardware, carpets,, provisions or the ordinary necessaries  of civilized life have you ever sold  to Chinamen?  Ladies, be true to your instincts  of refinement, and shun the contamination to which your most'per-.  'sonal property is exposed in the  squalid haunts, of the Chinese laundryman.  ' Liverymen, do Chinamen ever  ���hire a livery rig ? -  , Dentists, doctors, photographers,  tailors, publishers, milliners, dressmakers', painters, builders, music  stores, colleges, jewelers, lawyers  -���anybody���do Chinamen ever  spend anp money with you?  Mighty little, or none at all.  Do they ever ride on' the trolley  cars for pleasure? In short, do  they ever circulate any money that  they absolutely .do not have to?  Very, very seldom.  On the other hand the white  laundryman patronizes everything  and everybody, spends his money  like a white man, deals with white  men, and is a money-circulating  ��� medium in the city. .  Why force him to compete with  miserable foreigners when\.-you are  deriving the benefit of his patronage and citizenship?  Municipal Ownership of Utilities.  San Francisco Argonaut.  In a'recent issue of a New York  "pTiblication^HrH!-Vreeland^ presi^  dent of the Metropolitan Street  Railway Company, expresses his  1 views on the result of the municipal  ownership in Glasgow.

Skinner  Neelands' Building, Baker Street.  FRED J. SQUIRE, Manager.  Arthur Gee  MERCHANT  TAILOR  Removed to Baker Street, opposite the Queen's  failure, and seeks to prove his case  by comparing street .railway dayel-.  opment in Glasgow with the development in New   York city under  private ownership.    The comparison is not, convincing, to say the  least.   The comparison'?should be  with the conditions that" existed in  in Glasgow before the city took the  street-car system, and this comparison is wholly in favor of municipal  ownership.    The condition of  the  employees, the character of the service, the number of the passenger?,  the fare charged, the improvements  made, and the profits to the city all  speak strongly in fayor of the new  regime.   It is not alone in street-  railway enterprises that municipal  ownership has gone ahead in Glasgow.   The water supply has been  owned by the city for many years,  and   the   water   rates have   been  steadily    decreasing,   the    poorer  classes getting their supply free of  charge., The   disposal; of sewage;  and its conversion into fertilizing  material ,, are     city > enterprises.  Street-sweeping, gas and electric-  light plants, bath-houses,  marketplaces, and slaughter-houses are all  owned by the city.   Tiie city looks  after the harbor and   docksj and  runs a steamboat service and several  ferries.   The People's Palace  contains a. winter-garden, art-gallery,  museum, reading-rooms,  and concert-halls.   The latest development  is a telephone exchange.   Hates are  fixed at twenty-five dollars a year,  or slightly more than two dollars a  month, for unlimited service; seventeen dollars and a half a year for  limited service, and two cents for  each call.    It is  generally claimed  by the telephone companies that  the larger a city is, the higher the  rates that must be charged.   Glasgow, with; a population of nearly  one million, including ,the suburbs,  would seem to disprove this .statement, since the rates established by  the city there are only a fraction of  what the private company charges  in this city.   These facts may well  be   considered,   not   only   by   the  supervisors; but by the general public here.   In November the question  of municipal ownership will be submitted to the vote of the electors.  The supervisors will probably decide which proposition is most fav-  .orable for submission, but it is not  a.question for the people to decide  off-hand, and should be carefully  studied Joy every voter.  who urge delay in appealing to the  .countryjmtil .the affairs of the empire and far east have settled down,  are warned bluntly that the pacification of South Africa will be a  long process, and the conflict in  China, now that England has insisted upon forcing Japan into  the mainland, when Russia and.  Prance would have preferred to  have her remain outside, may run a  long way in the next decade. It is  highly probable that the elections  will be hastened by the unionists,*  and carried on Lincoln's maxim that  horses are to be swapped while  crossing a stream. The ministers  are overworked, and there are several square ones in round holes and  several more with wooden heads.  ��� The cabinet will have to be reorganized for a period of storm and  stress." ~-:'-v.
