 ������,...^.~ ._.......  .1 -I I ��-  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING JULY 10  J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  DISCUSS CHINESE AFFAIRS  Indemnity for Japan.  Washington, D.  G,   July   9.���  A cabinet meeting was held at  the  state   department today   for    the  discussion  of the  latest    developments   in  the    Chinese   situation.  Thene were'present secretaries Hay,  cLong and Root, and  attorney-general Griggs.    There  is  good reason  for th'e belief that admiral KempfF's  latest dispatch telling  of  the military necessities of the case was the  basis of discussion.    The  question  at issue, it is   understood, is  the  sending of reinforcemehts to Chiua  from the Philippines pending the  ���_   arrival of .-the troops ordered to the  *-< east from the United States.     It is  realized that only a small portion  of the six thousand troops ordered  from this  country  will  arrive out  h'-ic for two  or  three  months at  the earliest and that the  troops in  the Philippines  are the   only ones  that can be utilized for operations  in China within the next month.  If action on a large scale is to bo  had at once it will be necessary to  call on the troops in the Philippines. If war should result from  the present troubles, and the struggle be prolonged, the troops in the  United States now undor orders  for the Philippines will be available in due course of time. It was  rumored this afternoon that the  officials had concluded to dispatch  additional troops from the Philippines to assist in the proposed  allied movement against Pekiu for  1 he rescue of tho foreigners, but it  was impossible to verify the rumor  in official circles. Those people  who originated it seemed to be  positive of its accuracy, and even  went so far into details as to assert  that the fourth and eighteenth  regiments of infantry now serving in the vicinity of Manila have actually been ordered  to prepare for embarkation  to Taku. Secretary Root, when  questioned in regard to the report  tint afternoon, declined in.the most  positive manner to commit himself  to the question. . He would not say  .- that no more troops will be sent to  Chiua from the Philippines nor  would he admit that such a niove-  ni< ut was in contemplation.  .Mr. Wollant, the Russian charge  d'affaires, was among secretary  Hay's callers today. His mission  was connected with the Chinese  situation, and while no official explanation on the subject could be  had, there is reason to believe the  minister formally conveyed . to  secretary Hay the assurance that  his government was willing Japan  should do everything in her power  to meet, the needs of the situation,  realizing that she alone of the  powers was in" a position to act  quickly.  It is impossible 'to ascertain  whether or not any assurances have  been exchanged respecting the  =limi.tation=of=compensation=foi'=the=  t:isk the Japanese government is  about to assume in the interests of  civilization. An intimation has  been dropped that this matter of  indemnity will not be reduced to  exact terms in advance of action by  Japan, but that the latter nation  will proceed upon a general assurance from the powers concerned  thafc jit will be properly requited  lor the expenditure of men and  money involved.  It is learned at the state department that the foundation for the  story cabled from London respecting a co-operation between Japan,  England and the United States at  the iustauce of Li Hung Chang to  preserve the Chiuese empire, is  nothing more than an outcropping  in a new form of the arrangement  already made by the United States  government with the other powers  named for the neutralization of the  southern provinces of China in accordance with the urgent plea of  the viceroys of the provinces in  that section.  J Hef is 0,013,000. The governor of  Bombay telegraphed, the foreign  office as follows: 'There were  10,320 deaths from cholera and  0502 fatalities in the famine districts during the last week iu June.  The total deaths among the number on the relief works in the  British district were 5321. The  number on the relief works is increasing rapidly.'"  Famine Stricken India.  London, July 9.���The secretary  of state for India, lord George  Hamilton, has received the following from the viceroy of India, lord  Curzon : "The rain fall has been  fairly general this week in Bombay,  Deccan, Berara, Khandish, the central provinces, the Gangetic plain  and Punjab, but has been much below the average for these tracts except in southern Deccan. Little or  no rain has fallen in. Bajapot,  Gujerat and central India, Cholera  mortality continues high in Bombay. The mortality there was appalling.     The number receiving re-  HUTTON REPELLED ATTACK  Latest Casualties.  London, July 9.���Lord Roberts  today telegraphed to the war office  from Pretoria as'follows:  "The officer commanding at Heilbron reports that state secretary  Blignault, state attorney Dickson  and members of the council Vant- ���  ander and Kuppervergen came in  yesterday and surrendered. ���  "Hutton was attacked yesterday,  in a position he was holding by  large numbers of Boers.   He drove  them oif Avithout much difficulty.  The five-inch guns Avith him being  found most useful.  "Our only casualty \yas lieutenant  Roung of the first Canadian  mounted troops, a slight scalp  wound. The enemy, left, several  wounded oii the ground and sent a  flag of truce with a request that  they 'might be removed to our field  hospitals.  "I regret to say that captain  Currie and lieutenant Kirk of the  Imperial light horse, who were reported wounded in my telegram of  yesterday, were both killed. One  squadron of this distinguished  corps pressed a very large: force of  the enemy in a gallant attempt to  carry off a AAOunded companion to  Avhich they attributed the heavy  loss sustained. In addition to the  officers a farrier sergeant and three  troops Avere killed, and the sergeant  major, three sergeants and seven  troopers Avounded.  A Tragedy at Orangeville.  Maddened by jealousy, Ottawa  Hunter, a'young man" 19'years of  age, shot Gertie Nixon at Orangeville, Ontario, July 2nd, and then  killed himself. The terrible occurrence took place at Idlewild park at  4:30 p. ni. Nearly a thousand spectators Avere Avatching the lacrosse  match betAveen the Dufferins aijd  Tuscanora Indian teams. Suddenly  the sharp crack of a reArolver Avas  heard at the south end of the  grounds, and a second latera report  rang out again and the horrified  croAA'd saAv a young woman and  man stagger and fall. .The people  from the grand stand made* a rush  for the spot and a scene of great  excitement occurred. Hunter died  where he had fallen and his lifeless  body was taken to the town hall.  The girl was carried to Mrs. Murray's residence, near |by, in a precarious condition with a bullet in one  of her lungs.  King Humbert's Speech.  Rome, July 9.���King Humbert,  replying today to deputations from  the senate and chamber of deputies, avIio presented him with an  address voted in response to the  kiug's speech, expressed keen satisfaction at the calm restored to parliamentary debates.

Neav York, July 9.���Fire in the  Columbia storage Avarehouse building at No. 00 west Sixty-seventh  street today caused a loss of  $40,000.  FOREIGNERS PROBABLY SAFE  Immense Chinese Armies.  London, July   10.-3:30   a. in.���  AVith tho foreigners in Pekin probably safe amidst civil war, with  prince Ching on their side, with the  powers united and their forces constantly increasing, the outlook in  Chiua iioav is rather more hopeful  than it has been for a month past.  It appears from the cautious statement given by   Taotai   Sheng   in  Shang-Hai that the reason that the  heavy guns bearing on the legations  at Pekin were not   used, is   that  prince   Ching,   who   is   served by  10,000 troops, seized all the artillery  ammunition.     Shen likewise iuti-  mates that Yung Lu, commander-  in chief of the northern army, is  associated with prince Ching in opposing prince Tuan's ferocious designs and dictatorial ambition.  Sheng, who appears to be the  sole. Shang-Hai conduit of Pekin  news; cheers the foreign consuls by  these confidential communications,  but takes excessive precautions to  prevent the Chinese from thinking  him friendly to the foreigners.  , The feeling of .unrest in the  southern and central provinces continues. The members of the official  class in these provinces strive to  remain neutral, with a leaning  toward the foreigners, until. they  see "whether the moderate or extreme factions will win in Pekiu.  Prince Ching seems to be standing for the dynasty and the,old order against prince Tuan's inordinate ambition. From a foreign point  of vieAv the capture of Pekin is the  key to the situation, as, "there is  also a fear," says the Daily Mail's  Shanghai correspondent, "that delay now means one hundred recruits for the Boxers for every soldier of the allies in the land." "  Two couriers arrived at Tien-  Tsin on July 1 from Pekin. One  brought a letter from sir Claude  MacDonald, the British minister, to  the same effect as that previously  received from sir . Robert . Hart.'  The couriers confirm the reports of  the death of baron von Kettler.  Thoy say that prince Ching is doing his utmost to protect foreigners  but that the native feelings agaiust  the whites is strong. The high  officials opposed to the Boxers are  reported by the couriers to have  been murdered. - -  Sir Claude MacDonald's letter is  dated four days earlier than that  of sir Robert Hart.  A dispatch to a news agency  here, dated TienrTsin, July 2, says:  "The empress dowager is far from  being dead, and is actively striving  to prevent the factions fighting.  Prince Ching has informed her he  Avould rather lose his head than be  constantly obliged to warn her of  consequences of the prolongation of  the present anarchy.  Prince Tuan is willing that Ching  should be decapitated, but the  =dowager-=empress^vill=notaIloAv-this.=  Prince Tuan has decided that he  will take full responsibility. He  proposes to retake Tien-Tsin and  Taku. Outside of Pekin, except in  the Pe-Chi-Li and Shang Tung  country the people are indifferent.  However this may all be, the  allies at Tien-Tsin are having an  exceedingly unpleasant time. The  last engagement of Avhich news has  come through occurred on July Oth.  The Chinese artillery opened at  break of dawn. Their fire was more  accurate and their munition better.  The shells exploded with precision  setting fire to several buildings.  H.M. S. Terrible's guns again  quieted the Chinese, who shifted  their artillery. They reopened the  attack in the afternoon but, a  thunderstorm increasing, the Chinese suddenly quit. The allies immediately attacked and drove the  Chinese from their works and lost  300 killed and wounded in doing so.  The non-combatants are leaving  Tien-Tsin and the opinion of a  minority favors the military leaving also. Stories of colossal Chinese armies gathering continue to  worry not only the rank and file,  but the commanders,; who admit  the uncertainty of the reconnais-  ances and the complete absence of  an effective intelligence department. Chinese information is received with extreme distrust. It is  obvious that though there are  many thousands of Chinese camped  behind the guns, nothing can be  done at present except to await the  arrival of reinforcements.  The rainy season has set in and  this makes going into, the interior  most difficult. The country betAveen Pekin and Tien-Tsin in other  years has been frequently flooded.  River transport is almost impossible and the railway is practically  non-existent and must be rebuilt.  Military opinion isi.unanimous that  the legations did not need relief. It  Avould be foolish to attempt to advance till September.  The Daily Mail's 'Shang-Hai correspondent, mider date of July Oth,  says: "It is certain that if the  powers; make any movement else-  Avhere north of Takujthey must be  prepared to meet opposition,"  A Chinese official in high fa\ror  with viceroy Liu Kun Yi, in the  course of an interview, says the  southern viceroys are only bound  to neutrality so long as they are  not interfered with*     They have  more war materials; than they can  use, and the militaryrforces all over  the proA'inees are increasing.   The  Yang Tse Kiang is mined with torpedoes.   The garrison at the Shang-  Hai arsenal has justbeen reinforced  by.two newly recruited, regiments.  Baron Hayashi; being asked by a  representative of the Daily Chronicle, "S)o you understand that Japan  has now been allowed a free hand  to settle the trouble?" Replied,  "I  do not understand so, but I know  that Japan is quite willing to do all  in her power to bring the rising to  an end along with the other poAvers.  Japan is ready to put 22,000 men in  the field.    If any sort of government existed in Pekin, the settlement   of   the  trouble   would    not  present serious difficulties, but if  anarchy   prevailed  :the   situation  would be serious indeed."  George "Wyndham, parliamentary  uuder secretary of state for Avar,  said in the house of commons yesterday that ^siuce 1895 English  firrashad sold the Chinese government seventy-one guns of position,  123 field giins' and 297 machine  guns Avith ammunition for' each  class. He also said that a German  firm iu 1899 sold - China 460,000  mauser Rifles. !  BOERS UNUSUALLY ACTIVE  -    "*    - i -'  Defeated Near Middleburg.  . London, July*: 10���4 c_.-_m.-rrAs  lord Roberts' dispatches reveal, the  Boers are unusually active, botli in  the Orange River colony and in the  so-called pacified western Transvaal, but without producing any  serious impression upon the British  arms.  The Bond leaders at the Cape are  extending their boycott of British  firms, and Dutch companies Avith  -��200,000 capital have been formed.  ' Passengers arriving at Lorenzo  Marquez on July 9th from Middle-  burg say there has been severe  fighting between the latter place  and Machadodorp, in Avhich the  Boers Avere defeated and demoralized.  The Lorenzo Marquez correspondent of the Daily Telegraph says.  under date of July 9th: "I understand that Mr. Hollis, the American consul here, has been recalled.  Hensra=well-known=pro-rBoerrJ^=====  Trebelli Coming Again.  Mademoiselle Trebelli Avill once  more appear iu Nelson, playing a  return "engagement at the opera  house next Monday evening. She  will bring the same company Avho  were with her Avhen she appeared  here several weeks ago. Praise of  mademoiselle Trebelli's voice is  hardly necessary to those avIio did  not hear her when she Avas here  last, for they haA'o doubtless already heard of her from those who  did hear her sing. To those Avho  Avere so fortunate surely no . praise  is necessary. Mile. Trebelli's voice  deserves all tho praise that has  been lavished upon it by tho musical  critics of the Dominion. It is a  soprano of great tone and .power  and possesses an under note of feeling that is often absent in tho  trained voices of professional  singers. Those Avho do not attend  her final performance Avill miss a  treat not often offered on the local  stage.           Another Afridi War Feared.  London, July 10.���Advices to the  Express from Peshawur in the Punjab, under date of June 19th, say  that 600 Afridis made a sudden  night descent on a hundred Afghans  who. Avere engaged in building a  fort near Dacca, and killed a number of them. It is feared in some  official Indian circles that another  Afridi Avar is breAving.  Advance in Price of Sugar.  Neav Yokk, July 9.���The American Sugar Refining Company today  advanced all grades of refined sugar  one-tenth of a cent.  SLOGAN'S GOOD PROSPECTS  .     ��� O  _     General Mining Notes.  - Kaslo, July 9.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���There seems to be a  general feeling that the next six  months will see a big movement  both in the Slocan country and the  Lardo-Duncan district. Some papers published in the Slocan district  claim that the Slocan will be shipping more value than any other  part of British Columbia before  Christmas, while ere the snow falls  not a few properties in the Lardo  should be progressing well towards  a shipping basis.  The latest strike in the Slocan is  that just made on the Get-There-  Eli group near Sandon. They have  found what is described as rich dry  ore from three to nineteen inches  wide on the surface and< showing  up for 200 feet carrying values in  silver and sulphide and iron pyrites  holding gold. A-Vancouver company called the V. & M. Mines OAvns  the property Avhich is in charge of  William Harrington who has four  men opening up the land.  The successful flotation in London, England, of the Emily Edith  mine has had a noticeable effect  over New Denver and Slocan City  way. On Lemon creek, Springer  creek and Four-mile creek there are  many busy camps. The Arlington  road on Springer creek is being  rushed to completion, and AA'hen it  is finished the Arlington will add  to the 300 tons it has shipped out  this year. The Speculator, almost  adjoining the Arlington, has just  started up. A drift is to be run in  on the vein.  The Enterprise mine is the only  one shipping through Slocan City-  just at present, and it only sent  out 20 tons last Aveek. The force  was laid off tor the Dominion Day  holiday and the fourth, of July, but  the company has noAV purchased  large supplies aud by Wednesday  is expected to bo in full operation  Avith a force of 100 men.  gold at Machadodorp has created  the utmost discontent among the  foreign officers and men. They expected substantial reAvards for  championing the Boer interests,  but have received nothing. ��� It is  added that visiting foreigners who  have subsequently advocated intervention are believed to have received substantial sums.0 Proof of  this, it is further asserted has been  discovered in Pretoria, Avhich promises startling developments.  OBJECT TO SUNDAY GAMES  Miscellaneous Mining News.  Yesterday's mining records were:  Transfers, the; Fairhaven.and Warfare Fraction, AA'est side' of Rover  creek, by Joseph Barnard of Erie,  to Elidore Bushan of Trail, consideration $200, the Boston on Toad  mountain by William Moore to  George Kydd; Certificates of work,  to John McDonald on the Anna  Maud Ruth.

The property  is owned by Fred and Cliff LoAvden  and the ore carries high values in  silver and copper.  Orange Celebration in Slocan,  Slocan City, July 9.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The Orange celebration here on Thursday next will  be the biggest affair of the kind  the Kootenay brethren have ever  attempted. Every lo'dge in the district Avill be represented and the  indications point to a large number  of spectators. Nelson and Sandon  A\rill each send a band, and several  fife and drum corps will be here in  addition. A big parade is to be  formed and marched through the  toAvn to the recreation grounds,  Avhere suitable addresses Avill be  given by prominent men. A'  covered grandstand and seats  capable of accommodating several hundred people haAre been  erected and eA'ery preparation  made for a croAA'd. The citizens  aro uniting Avith the society and  haA'e subscribed $200 for a prize or  medals for a football tournament,  to diA'ide the championship of  West Kootenay. Nelson, Sandon,  Silverton and Slocan will be the  contesting teams and a hot time is  expeeted. The juvenile clubs of  New Denver and Slocan Avill also  play a match game. In the eA'ening  the football club will give a ball  for tho visitors. . The C. P. R. is  issuing excursion rates for the celebration.

Boers' Mercenaries Left.  Catio   Towx, July  9.���It is reported  hero  that    president Kruger's retention of a large amount of  THE FINANCIAL CONDITION  B Of the City of Nelson.  Auditor McDermid's report of the  receipts   and expenditures of the  city for the six months ending June  30th   shows   that/$25,537.05   have  been expended on streets and side-:  walks.     This sum includes $5000  paid for the steam and roller rock  crusher.   To this amount should be  added $2000 for lumber used and  labor payrolls that will be paid this  month. The council, therefore, have  expended so far this year, including  bills contracted by last year's council, in the neighborhood of $22,500  on streets and sidewalks.    If Baker  street   is macadamized from Hall  street to the middle of the block in  which the Bank of Montreal building is situate, and outside streets  made in fairly good  condition, another $15,000 will have to be spent.  The question is where is the money to come from, if not from the  sale of debentures.    While the revenue is above the amount estimated  by the finance committee,  yet the  surplus  will  not be equal  to  the  amount that has been expended on  account of the smallpox scare, relief  to sister toAvns, and the extra sums  that Avill be required  to settle the  bills rendered by lawyers  who find  the city so good a claim to "work."  Other expenditures  have been as  folloAvs:     On   sewer   construction,  $5353.45; Avater works construction,  $5905.08;   electric   light   construction,   $7209.73;: _ fire   department,  $3112.13;   .scavenger   department,  $37,90.23;   electric ��� light ��� maintenance,  $2141,81j.:interest, - $0330.50;  salaries,      $2002.50;       quarantine,  $1969.43; grants to  hospitals,  Sandon, Kuskonook, etc., $4415.50; police department, $2308.48; legal expenses, water works maintenance,  etc., $3293.80;   or  a total of $73,-  930.95.  The receipts total $30,732.98, of  which $10,322.07 came from electric  light rates; $0775.10 from water  rates and $0192.50 from licenses. The scavenger department  brought in $2033.40, police court  fines $1479.50, and miscellaneous  $1660.90. The remainder was derived from real estate taxes, dog  taxes, etc.  The overdraft at the Bank of  Montreal is $43,197.97, about half  of whicli is chargeable to the present council, as the $15,000 Avorth  of debentures authorized to be issued by the last council have not  "b^en^offefecrfor sale, and-their-is-7  sue will be cancelled if the ratepayers endorse the bylaws iioav before  them.  The city's debenture debt is $175,-  and the bylaAvs to be voted on on  the 18th instant, if passed, will increase the debt to $251,000.  Session of the Senate.  Ottaava, July 9.���[Special to Tho  Tribune.]���In the senate today  Bowell said that if the Dominion  Election Act Avere to be properly  discussed by the senate they would  require to sit for a fortnight. Hoav-  ever, it is expected that prorogation  will come about on Saturday, although no one can tell. All business  except the supplementary estimates  and raihvay subsidies are noAV  passed.        Assisted Emigrants.  Ottaava, July 9.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���In the house tonight in  the debate on the emigration estimates Sifton in reply to Wilson,  member for Lennox, said that in  regard from what the late government did it was not his intention  to recommend to his colleagues to  make any changes in regard to assisted immigrants. Wilson said  this was not the vieAv taken by a  number of officers and European  agents.  Only Fear Lack of Food.  London, July 8.���The consuls at  Shang-Hai report that the Pekin  legations were safe on July 4th and  that the Chinese had ceased their  attacks. The only fear felt at that  time, according to the reports of  the consuls, was regarding the food  supply.  Baptists and Methodists Petition.  At last night's council meeting  petitions were presented from the  Baptist and Methodist churches,  signed by the respective pastors  and secretaries, requesting the council to compel saloons to close on  Sundays, to prevent Sunday games  on the recreation grounds and take  such other action as might be necessary to prevent Sabbath desecration.  After reading the petitions mayor  Houston remarked that the council should grant individual citizens *  the same rights, but no greater, as ���  were   enjoyed   by   others.    There  was no reason Avhy Sunday sports  should be prevented so long as they  did not interfere with the privilege  of church goers.   The sooner it was  understood that this council was  hot taking  sides   in   religion the  better it AA'ould be.   The present  council was not elected on this issue, and if church members desired  to elect aldermen on the issue in  question they would have an opportunity to do so in January next.  On motion of alderman Wilson  the petitions Avere filed Avithout discussion.  The council authorized the city  engineer   to   have   WHIoav   street*  made passable for teams.  The committee on public" works  submitted   a   report,    Avhich   was  carried, as follows : That .a six-foot ���  sideAvalk be laid on the south' side  of Mill street from Stanley to Hendryx street; that the water main  on Houston street be extended to lots  0 and 7 in block 47, that thealley-  Avay at the rear of the Methodist-  church be graded to proA'ide proper  drainage;   that   the   thistles   and  Avecds on the streets and alleyways'  of the city be cut down;   that a  pipe   seAver be laid in the��alley of  block 79; that a six-foot'sideAvalk  be laid  on  the  south side of Lake  street   from   Hall    to    Josephine"  street and on the east side of' Josephine street from Lake to Front .  streets; that street lights be placed  ou Lake street; that the sidewalks  on Victoria street be  discontinued.  On motion of Aid: Irvine ���- and--  Morrisou it AA'as decided to extend  the seAver in the alley west of Stanley street to connect with houses  belonging to Samuel Bunker. The  sewer will also be extended in the*  alley south of Mill street to the  residence of J. Fraser and as far  beyond as necessary.  J. Still well Clute of Rossland  wrote thanking the aldermen for  courtesies receiAred during the celebration and expressing his appreciation of the demonstration.  R. J. Elliott presented a bill of  $42 for repairing the cycle path,  aud recommended that a man with-  a shovel be sent over the road occasionally to keep the path in repair.  The account was passed.  C.

This city of-Toronto has its fair  proportion of cranks and from time  to time they keep the members of  the city council in hot water Avith  their hobbies in the matter of municipal government.   The latest crank  proposition in Toronto is the abolition of the minimum wage clause  iii municipal contracts.   The cranks  say    that   Avhile   contractors   are  bound to pay a minimum wage they  will-offer employment to none but  the "young and the strong;   that  owing to the minimum wage clause  the old men of the city are deprived  of work.   Just how the cranks propose to overcome the contractors'  right of selection'-in laborers is not  made clear.    If a contractor today;  chooses    young   men    who    have  strength,    to  earn   the   minimum  wage   Avhat   guarantee can   they  give,  that when all wages are reduced to meet the earning powers  of the old men, that young men Avill  not continue to receive the   first  chance to earn such wages.   Prob  ably the cranks propose to replace  the minimum wage' clause with  another Avhich will provide that no  one shall be employed upon city  Avork who is under fifty years of age.  During the remainder of the  year 1899 and up to midnight on  the 10th day of January, 1901,  every man, Avoman and child resident iu Nelson Avill be allowed to  observe Sunday in his or her oavu  Avay, just as they are ^allowed to  live on week days. No church organization or member thereof, Avill  be permitted to dicate to people  who are not members of church organizations as to how they shall  spend Sunday or auy other day in  the Aveek. Nelson is not a Avide-  open town, and it Avill not be a  church-ridden toAvn.  Goldwin Smith on Anglo-Saxons.  Professor Goldwin Smith, in a recent issue of the  New York  Sun,  makes the following comment upon  the  claims for domination  of the  Anglo-Saxon blood: "Scarcely less  fantastic that the dream of reproducing the Roman empire is that of  a joint domination of Great Britain  and the   United  States   over   the  globe, based on the imperial qualities  of Anglo-Saxon   blood.   How  much of the blood, even of the blood  of the people in the mother country,  is   really Anglo-Saxon ?   The  Highlands of Scotland, three-quarters of Ireland, almost the whole of  Wales, and the west of England are  Celtic.    The north-east of England  and the Scottish Isles are Scandina-  A'ian.   There have been infusions of  Flemings,  of   French   Protestants,  and-of Jews.    Even of the original  population of the United States, a  part   was   not   Anglo-Saxon,   but  Dutch, Swedish or scattering.    But  during the last sixty years there  has been   a  continual   torrent of  alien immigration ; and tho general  fact is that the higher races, being  restrained by fear of poverty and  social pride,   multiply less   freely  =thanfthe4owerTacesrwhieh=wre=free=  from those restraints.   We have in  Canada over a million of French,  and we are pumping into tho North-  West by our immigration agencies  a population as alien as possible to  Anglo-Saxon   pedigreo   and   ideas.  The population of Australia is also  mixed; that of the Cape Colony is  still more so, to say nothing of the  blacks in the West Indies.   To all  these heterogeneous elements England has given  her language, her  literature, and much of her law and  institutions.   This is a fact of which  every Englishman is justly proud;  but.it is not a sufficient basis for  lording it over a subject AA'orld."  League-Games.  Syracuse 1, Toronto (i.

WHY   A   MINT   IS   NEEDED.  The Province.  The   greater   part,   by   far   the  greater   part   of   the  gold   whicli  comes down from the north is mined  in  British territory and  it is an  abiding marvel to the business, men  of Vancouver  why  such a  larger  '-.proportion    of   the   trade   of   the  "winners of that gold does not come  to   Vancouver and   other   British  j mints.   It   is   idle   to   deny  that  Seattle aud the .Sound cities are deriving the chief benefits of the trade  to  and from  the goldfields  which'  aio the rightful inheritance of Canada and the Canadians.  Various causes have beeu assigned  foi'the present state of affairs. Ifc  has been said that British Columbia  merchants are not sufficiently enterprising ; that the boards of trade  ate not sufficiently alive to the  needs of the hour, that the transportation companies deliberately  give Vancouver the go-by, and that  the city does nob do enough adver-  lisiug. The following paragraph,  however, from an interview'with a  Klondike miner throws a great deal  of light upon bhe subject.  '*AIr. Gibson had been assured at  Dawson that he could not sell his  gold here and had governed himself  accordingly, otherwise he would  have preferred to remain in Vancouver. He says that there are  hundreds of others who would gladly come to a British port to dispose  of their dust were, they advised  thafc they could sell ifc on as good  terms as elsewhere, aud as the  banks  afc  Dawson  are   British  he  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  cannot understand why men are  not sent to their correspondents  here instead of to the Seattle  people."  As iu the face of this, and to further quote Mr. Gibson, something  seemed to be radically wrong with  tho local facilities for exchanging  gold, the managers of the Vancou-  A*er banks were invited to explain  just what is the trouble.  "I'll  tell you  all about it," said  Andrew Jukes, manager of the Imperial Bank   of   Canada.'    "Say a  miner  comes  down  here ��� with his  dusfc.    He brings ifc to us  and we  can do one of two things for him.  We can make him an advance on it  and then forward ifc to the United  States government assay  office at  Seattle where it will be smelted and  tbe full value paid to ais, less the  smelting charges, when we deduct  a small percentage to cover express-  age,  insurance,  consul's  fees,   and  other items and pay bhe owner the  balance.   The other  course   is   to  send the miner around to the assay  office here, where lie will have his  gold refined.and receive a certificate  of the actual value.    Still we can't  pay him that value in full when we  buy the brick from him.    You see  we can't keep the gold here���people  who come to us for gold want coin  gold, not gold bricks or gold dust.  We must send it to Seattle.    Now  at Seattle they won't accepb the.  assay made here and that has to be  done again, a fresh set of charges  has to be paid and there is another  loss in the second smelting to be allowed for.    If a man takes his gold  straight to Seattle he escapes ��� consul's fees, war-tax at the boundary,  heavy  expressage  charges aud receives the full value from the government less assay expense.    Ifc follows, therefore, that we cannot begin to pay the same rate as is paid  at Seattle.  "If a man lias only a small quantity of gold it pays him best to  come to us, but if he has a. large  quantity it wdll pay him better to  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.

There is no use  in trying to hide ifc; Seattle is in a  position to handle the gold to  greater advantage than we are, and  as long as that is so we shall see the  trade pass our doors.  "The government ought to coin  gold in Canada. Let it establish a  mint, or at least, a branch of the  Royal Mint, here in Vancouver, and  in the meantime make; arrangements to buy gold-dust here. There  is no mint at Seattle but the United  States government has established  an assay office there'and buys all  the gold that comes along. And-ifc  is just because that ;government  was alive to its opportunities and  ours is not, that our goldj is building up Seattle instead of our own  cities."  TROUBLE   ON   THE   TELEPHONE.  When Mr. Meddlar tried to use  his telephone; a few days ago, the  "hello; girl," probably dreaming "of  her social triumphs, instead of giving him the number he called for;  connected him With- a line over  which a conversation already raged.  Mr. Meddlar had listened for only a  moment before he discovered that  the line had a very irascible female  at one end of it and" a not: over-  bright grocer's clerk at' the other,  aud that the lady's order'Was being  given somewhat . tempestuously.  He, therefore, decided to facilitate  the proceedings, and the wires began to heat up about this fashion:  Woman's Voice? And I want a  dozen eggs, a dozen eggs���understand ?  Mr. Meddlar: Yes, mum. Do you  want them fresh mum ?  Woman's Voice: Of course,' stupid!  Do you take us for cheap folks?  Clerk's Voice: Yes,inum; a dozen  eggs:  Mr. Meddlar: Did you say a dozen  or a bushel, mum?

There is probability of a strike of  boiler-makers in Montreal. Some  time ago a meeting AA'as held at  which it Avas decided to ask for an  increase of wages to the amount of  10 per cent.

During the year 1898 China imported from all foreign nations  goods valued at $140,000,000. During the same year the exports of  China amounted to $118,000,000. As  an evidence of which nation has  the greatest interest in China so far  as trade and commerce go it maybe  stated that of the total of Chinese  imports Great Britain and its  colonies supply goods to the amount  of $111,000,000, while of the exports  it buys about $00,000,000, or more  than one-half. - Most of the English  trade witli China is transacted  through the British crown colony  of Hong Kong, which was ceded to  Great Britain by' China in 1841.  During the same year the United  States imported goods from Chiua  to the value of $13,000,000, and sent  back in return American goods  valued at a little more than  $9,000,000.  HOTEL  ARRIVALS.
