AVashington, D. 0., July 17.���A  decidedly more hopeful feeling in  regard to the Chinese situation was  apparent     iu   all    administration  circles  this  eveniug.    The tide of  sentiment which has beeu markedly  pessimistic,    < turned     with     the  i)       announcement of the victory of the  allies at Tien-Tsin and the capture  .,        of the forts  and native city,  and>  1(1       gathered   further   strength   from  ) 11 itaster Wu's cablegram declaring  that the foreigu ministers at Pekin  jj       , were safe July 9.   Aside from these  d ispatches.the, arrival of the- pr'esi^.  '0\, dent and tho special cabinet meeting  ./^recalled to consider the situation wero  " t^lth-) features of the day.  f*     The cabinet met at 2:30 o'clock  I.  ���>  IC  it  *N  this afternoon. Less than an hour  after tlio president reached the  AVhite House,- over 100" newspapermen thronged the corridors while  the cabinet was sitting behind  closed doors. TJie scene resembled  1 lie hottest days of the Spanish  war. Thero were present seerotary  Hay, secretary Root, secretary  (f.ige and postmaster-general Smith.  At the conclusion of the session,  which lasted two and a half hours,  secretary Root gave out the following formal1 statement of the action  ' of the cabinet:  The president has ' determined  that the facts now known to us do  not require or justify calling an extra session   of   congress.     Should  . future developments indicate that  that he is unable to do what is required with -the means now at his  command, and the action of congress is necessary to furnish either  men or money or authority, he will  j* not hesitate to call it together.  ' While only this meagre formal  statement  was given" out,  it was  Ascertained that the whole Chinese  ,' situation was thoroughly discussed *  by* the cabinet.  ��� ,The decision that an extra session  , of A^ongress was ,not demanded by  existing conditions, was the outcome  , /of the showing which both secretary  - Root ana\secretary Long"were able  tojpake as,to the force -that. could,  , be   thrown ' into,   China" without  ��� the authorization of additional  troops by congress, and also, the  decidedly more hopeful feeling entertained by the president aud the  members of his cabinet as to the  safety of minister Conger and the  other foreigners in Pekin due to the  cable of. minister-Wu, reporting tho  safety of the minister on July.9,  two days after their reported  massacre.  While this cable is not regarded  ns conclusive, it is accepted in good  faith.for the present. But the administration, it can be definitely  stated, has set in motion some  machinery by which it is confidently predicted that absolutely authentic news as to the fate of the ministers and other foreigners at Pekin  Avill be ascertained. Though what  channel .the administration expecb_\_  to receive this all important news  i-* not known, but that a definite  statement of the situation in Pekiu  ���ia daily, if not hourly expected, is  certain.  The advices received from Pekin  probably will be the determining  factor in blazing the future course  of this government. If minister  Conger has been murdered an extra  session of congress seems inevitable.  Admiral Reraey's message of the  success following the earlier lighting at Tien-Tsin helped to relieve  the anxiety of the president aud his  advisers, but minister Wu's message  was responsible for the really hopeful feeling that prevailed.  Secretary Root furnished the  cabinet with a summary of the  troops available, not only in this  country, but in Cuba, and gave it as  his opinion that between 10,000  and 12,000 troops in all could be'  .--pared for service in China. These  reinforcements are to be rushed,  i hrough at * the earliest possible  moment. Most, if not all of them,  it is believed, can be landed by the  end of" August or early in September.  8  <n  *?��  ��r>  m.  m  <����  m  *  ��r>  m  m  <?��  **.  n  <i��  <n  4��  m  i��  <n  i��  ^-M**4-ia4-��-��4**4*44-��*l*^^  Vote for Prosperity for Nelson.

London, July 17.���In the house of  . Situation in Colombia.  Kingston, Jamaica, July 17.���  Piirther news from Colombia is to  the effect that up to July 13th  Panama was still held by the government, bu�� it was the general  opinion that the rebels could take  Panama any time they should wish.  The rebels are said to be led by an  American military expert. The  government is in dreadful straits  fur food with- which to feed the  troops, who are seizing the cattle  from residents.  commons today, on the introduction  of the naval vote, Mr. Goschen, first  lord of the admiralty, made a general statement. He declared that  it was due to the delays of the  contractors that the admiralty had  not produced more ships. He defended the Belleville boilers which  had been unhesitatingly ���,adopted  by America, Germany, Japan and  Prance, but ultimately he agreed to  the appointment of a committee of  practical engineers ,to examine the  whole question.  Mr. Goschen referred with satisfaction to the new turbine principle  of propulsion.  With regard to non-inflammable  wood fittings, Mr. Goschen said the  recent experiments with the old  turret ship Belleville showed that  the present arrangements for flooding decks with water', were most  successful. The admiralty had, he  added, no evidence that.thei Spanish  warships possessed such elaborate  precautions as were .provided oh  board the Belleville. Non-inflammable (wood is being used on some  new warships, though it is not quite  satisfactory, in some of its other  properties. Regarding the new  battleships; Mr. Goschen said they  would be of the Formidable class.  .Trouble in Bolivar.  Kingston, Jamaica, July 17.���  The recent visit of the British  cruiser Alert to Ciudad, Bolivar, to  investigate the murder of vice-  consul Lyall caused much commotion among the Venezuelans, which  still continues and is sure to breed  friction. British subjects took  advantage of the Visit to represent  to the captain of the Alerb wrongs  sustained at tbe hands of the Vene-  zuelahs'aridTtsked'for relief. Captain Saville refused to interfere,  referring the complaints to the  British consul, which gave rise to  considerable discontent. Relations  at present are most strained  between the British residents and  the natives of Ciudad, Bolivar, and  trouble is feared.  Li's New Appointment.  Washington, D. C, July 17���The  appointment of Li Hung Chang is  regarded here as particularly significant, as the province of Chi Li is  the seat of practically all the present trouble. Pao Ting is the capital  of the province, but. within its  borders, are located Pekin, the  capital of the empire, and Tien-Tsin,  where the first great battle has  occurred. Li Hung Chang is known  not to desire service so far north.  He maintains that he has less influence in that section of China than  in his present yiceroyalty, the headquarters of which are at Canton. It  is deemed probable, however,'that  he has been persuaded to take this  appointment in view of the well  understood fact that he is the most  influential Chinaman among foreign  nations. ; -.."������ - ::- - v ,,.:ji.������:!���-.":-;.' -  Central Massachusetts Sold.  Boston, Massachusetts, July 17.���  After a stormy two hours' session  today the stockholders of the Central. Massachusetts railroad voted  to sell the road to the Boston and  Maine at a price to be adjudicated  by the railroad, commissioners on  all property save 30,000 shares of  preferred stock. The vote was  38,056 sbaies in favor of the sale;  13,510 against.  A CANYON CREEK VENTURE  Two Dividends Declared.   A_story_of-=.how_a_syndicate--o��  tenderfeet from the east declared  two dividends on a mining venture  is told for the first time in print  below:  Away back in 1884, when the  Canadian Pacific was being built  through tho Rockies, the only mining camp that was talked of was  Canyon Creek. It was a placer  camp, and the creek bearing the  name empties into the Columbia  river a few miles above Golden, in  East Kootenay. The; ground was  reported 'fabulously.;rjich, and by  some it is even today believed-.to be  as rich as any ground in far-famed  Klondike. Among others, a party  made up at Winnipeg started across  the plains, and in due time landed  at the-..western, terminus of the,  Canadian Pacific, a -town made up  of log cabins^vhose residents were,  in the main, engaged in the whisky  traffic, a traffic at that time held to  be. unlawful throughout/the Northwest Territories and along the line  of the Canadian Pacific as far west  as the summit of the Gold range.  The party had a "permit' to carry  fiye.galLons of liquor, and they carried the. liquor (Hudson's Bay rum)  in a keg.' The first night in the  terminus town was spent in having  a jolly good time: with the mounted  police and others; who were not  supposed to have 'liquor in their,  possession at any time. The' next  morning there was only two gallons  of the rum left, im the keg, and  every man of the party had a head  on him that felt unusually large.  They got together during the forenoon and decided tha.t they must  begin searching for the gold that  was said to be so plentiful on  Canyon creek, and before making a  start they had better dispose of the  keg and its contents. One , of the  ,numb_er_said,he_had_a_friend���who-  would take it off their hands, and  ho was commissioned to sell it,  which he did for $50 in American  gold. A dividend was immediately  declared,. and the gold equally  divided among the members of the  syndicate. Tho party then proceeded to Canyon creek and worked  all summer. In the fall they cleaned  up, and took the gold to the same  town at which they had landed in  the spring. There they sold tlieir  gold, and declared another dividend.  The man who purchased it wears  the whole clean-up today in the  shape of a plain gold ring, worth  probably five dollars. Three of the  party returned to Winnipeg and  the others remained in British  Columbia and prospered. ; ,  Quiet at Hankow but Not Honan.  Paris, July 17.���The French consul at Hankow telegraphs under  date of July 11th that all was calm  at Hankow and that the population  did not appear excited. He adds  that. the viceroy was taking  measures to avoid disturbances and  that no trouble had thus far occurred. The vicar of . southern  Honan telegraphs that he was  attacked in his residence at Nan  Yang Fou. The vicar of northern  Honan announces that the religious  establishments at Siang Yan were  destroyed and that the insurrection  appeared to be spreading southward. '������     .       ....  Big Cone of Gold.  New YpRK, July 17.���A cone  shaped liimp of gold weighing  7,897 ounces, and worth $135,275,  was received in this city today at  the local branch of the Bank of  Montreal.  ALL THE FORTS WERE TAKEN  Dr. Munun's Departure.  ---BERGiNr-July-17;^An~officiarbT  the  German   foreign   office today  pointed out that Germany's news  from the fight'.at Tien-Tsin on July  13 was more favorable than the re-,  ports  of  the   American  admiral.  Admiral   Benjamin   has   reported  that the attack upon the Chinese  was successful, but not wholly so,  one fort remaining uncaptured.  Referring to the proposition for  an international conference, made  in the German press, the official  said: "Such a plan has not yet  yet been broached by the powers.  A conference is not necessary at  this stage of developments, inas-"  much as an interchange of views  between the cabinets is the quickest way to reach some agreement  upon measures for common action  in China."  When asked whether the massacre at Pekin had caused a change  in the attitude of any power, the  official replied: "It'has not, and  no fresh interchaflge of views has  been called forth* in consequence."  Referring to the expected departure of Dr. Mumm von Schwar-  zenstein, the new German minister  to China, the official said his destination would be Sing Tan, and his  duties for the present to observe  the situation and to report to the  German government.  Dr. Mumm told the correspondent  of the Associated Press today that  he would endeavor to catch the  steamer Presuim at Genoa on July  24th, if he had received his full instructions from count von Buelow  in time, but that otherwise he  would go by the next steamer. 1  MANCHURIA DISTURBANCES  '    ���'������ ��� ' ��� :''" "/> ���.-.*' ^''-iiE'ii:  r,.  ._   -.;; - "f.vV*^   ,. ���.!*V&L  Russians Hold Their, Own.' ^y^/^I  London, July 18, 4Va. ^m.-^The^lj  news of the Manchuria disturbances/1^| J  is not regarded as justifying^tliie^^|  serious view attributed/to,it;byJthe^^  Dailv .Mail's advices; vi*Amur;;;Cther��$$1  Daily  boundary    ime ��� *De*5ween-iea8cern^*^|  Siberia and Manchuria, has been the -Sfl  ��� scene' of *' local '--dia1 turbances^fbrta'#|  long-time owing to theprovo<��fiye^  conduct of the Cossacks'tbward'tneWi  25,000   Chinese ,��� employed^in1ftheW|  construction,- of tv "the ^���-Russo-jfeur^f  churian -'railway.' ;;Seyeralv^serio^T!|^E  , cbllisions'-have-; .occurred^_}tt���w$&j_x^  the'.

He added that he had  received important cables from lord  Salisbury and M. Deleasse demand- .  ing protection for the foreign ministers, and threatening to take life  for life of the high officials responsible, if the ministers were murdered.   He told the consul that he was  the only man in China who dared  transmit such messages to the em-    (j  press, but that he had sent them  verbatim and that he did not doubt  they had oxerted a powerful influence in saving the ministers' lives.

The defeat of the street improve-  ��� ment loan  by-law means that, all  -work on .-treets and sidewalks will  . be, suspended for the remainder of  - this year.

Which is the better  ;", for the city?    Which is the better  '/.-for the people who want passable  \t streets and good sidewalks ?   The  ���,' progressive people in this city want  tlie-city lo keep moving. The moss-  back element are raving about paying taxes twenty year's from now.  The gt-nial old   mossback ��� that  writes    '-ditorials   for'   the  Miner  inclined to be fair with the people  he would take a  walk  up  to  the  city oflice, and ask the eity clerk to  be allowed to examine the books in  which the city's accounts are  kept.  If he has not enough  brains  in his  head to understand the  entries  in  the books, he might call iu "Junius,"  who is an - adept at figures.   The  books show that the City of Nelson  has paid out, to June  30th, 1000,  $87,647.96   on   water   Avorks    construction account, and $('8,254.18 on  electric   light   works   construction  account.   They will show, also, that  the City of Nelson has received, to  June   30th,    1900,    $26,0S7.93    for  water rates, and $23,580 for electric  light rates.   They also show that,  to June 30th, 1900, $4776.5S were  expended in maintaining and operating     the    water    works,    and  $6943.01 for maintaining and operating the electric light works.    The  books also show that the interest  and sinking  fund  charges  on ��� the  debentures   issued   for the   water  works, to June 30th, 1900, amount  to $13,153, and on electric light debentures to $8550.    But it is  not  figures that the editor of the Miner  and   ex-alderman   Frank Fletcher  want.    They     want     the    people  to     believe     their     unsupported  vaporings      as       statements      of  fact.     This   the   people   will   not  do.      The     people     know     that  the foresight of the men who were  in the  council  in   1897   and   1898  secured   to   the   city   two   public  utilities that are of immense benefit  to   Nelson;   they   know that both  of     these    public     utilities     are  earning   money   over   and   above  the    cost    of     maintaining     and  operating  them,   as   well   as providing    for    the     interest    and  sinking fund charges of their cost;  they also know that iri order to  keep pace with the growth of the  city,    money    must   be   spent   iu  extending both the .water and light  systems/  They also know that the  present council is not made up of-  men who have ought but the best  interests of the city at heart.    Is it  likely that alderman McKillop and  alderman   Arthur    and   alderman  Irvine from the West .ward are not  just as careful of the city's  interests as were the. .three aldermen  who,represented the *\vard'in last  yearns   council?     Have, alderman  Morrison and alderman Wilson and  alderman Hall of the East ward  shown a disposition-to be extravagant with the revenues of the city?  Mayor Houston may be all that the  Miner says he is; but, somehow, the  people prefer him to ex-alderman  Fletcher for positions * that require  brains and honesty of purpose.  Why So Many Fail..  -Many young- men- fail to achieve  success because they lack the power  or inclination to do hard work. The  head of one of Toronto's large department stores, in addressing a  _body of teachers, said:   No man in  says that mayor Houston is careful to mix up the figures of the  electric li-^ht and water plants so  that it is impossible to distinguish  between them.   Jf the g. o. m. was  the practical world of today can  hope to get on if he shirks his work.  I ask you to use all your power and  influence to instill in tiie minds of  those you teach the truth that a  man owes work to the world, while  the -world does not owe him anything. An expert accountant of  many years' practice said: The  best man I ever had in my employ  was a plodder. The writer, in his  experience as a teacher, coming into  contact with many thousand young  men, has_ rarely, if over, found a  student who did not possess suflicient ability to make a successful  start in life if he was thoroughly  imbued with the precept, "Keeping  everlastingly,at it brings.success."  Many young men fail to render valuable service, through lack of ability  to do accurate, systematic work.  The business community demands  well-trained minds, capable of  grasping details and carrying out  instructions in a correct and orderly  manner. The young man who  possesses this faculty is a rarity,'  and never need be without profitable employment. Above all else,  the young man who would succeed  must be honest and temperate.  He must be what he would appear.  There is a premium upon those who  possess sterling manhood, fixity of  purpose, and a determination to  overcome obstacles.  The Modern Rascal.  , In contrast with his primitive  prototype, the modern, rascal is  noticeable first of all for; his versa^  tility. Ho is no longer merely a  reckless thief, a dextrous liar, or a  coarse practical joker.' With the J  increasing complexity of life his  sphere has widened immeasurably  -and his motives and ambitions have  been stretched to cover everything,  in the material and moral universe.  So we have Baldassare cultivating  cunning that be may take his vengeance on Tito Melerva, and Tito  too indolently fond of his own  sweet will and too ambitious for the  favor of the Medicis to seek power  or pleasure by the straight and  narrow way. We have Becky  Sharp tricking matchlessly for a  title, and Leicester scheming less  adroitly if more recklessly for a  throne. Aud as curiously modern  variants, we have the philanthropic  rascal in Roden's Corner and the  rascal on principle in Beggars All.  Some play for the prize, and some,  like Rupert of Hentzau, love best  the hazards of the game ; some, like  Becky, tread hard on human hearts,  and others, like Gill-ert Parker's  Pretty Pierre, can be very tender  when there is need ; some, as Rochester, stand proudly self-justified in a  condemning Avorld; others undeceived drink the bitter draught  their own hearts pour for them to  its dregs."  Horses in Battle.  One of the most curious sights to  be seen in a cavalry charge is the  various  riderless  horses  galloping  in the line in perfect order.    At the  charge of Balaklava the front rank  of one regiment Avas composed to a  great extent of riderless animals,  their masters  having dropped one  by one.    It would seem that in the  excitement   of   the   moment   the  horses lose all conception of what  is happening around them, and fail  to notice the fall of their riders.  Tho return of riderless horses to  camp is an- almost certain  sign of  defeat. " WheiiSa cavalry charge is  successful the horses will, as I have  said, all keep together, even though  they   have lost their   riders:   but  when   a   force     is     routed     the  first hews of ill omen  to those iu  the   rear   will   be   the  return   of  the horses with empty saddles arid  stirrups dangling free.     No more  sorry sight can bo imagined.   To  illustrate the callous feeling these  animals   have   under   fire, a   case  which happened at Ladysmith during the siege may be cited.   A farrier sergeant was engaged in shoeing  an officer's horse in the open ground  behind tho stables of a hotel, and  had already put one or  two nails  into the shoe  when a, shell came  screaming through the, air.     The  next moment the missile burst five  or six yards away from  where  the  sergeant and the horse Avere standing,-arid the splinters flew'around  both, but failed   to   touch either.'  When the smoke had cleared the  horse was to be seen with' its foot  still in the man's apron, quite" undisturbed by the incident. "  '  Entirely Indifferent.  Thomas Sheridan, the Irish  clergyman, and grandfather of  Richard Brinsle'y Sheridan, the  dramatist, had a great distaste for.  metaphysical discussions, Avhereas  his son Tom, the actor, had a great  liking for them. Tom one day tried  to discuss with his father the doctrine of necessity.  '���Pray, father," said lie, "did you  ever do anything in a state of perfect indifference���without motive, I  mean, of some kind or other?"  Sheridan; who saAV Avhat Avas coming, said:    "Yes, certainly."  "What, total indifference���total,  entire, thorough indifference?'"  "Yes, total, entire, thorough indifference." o  "My dear father," said Tom, "tell  me what it is that you can do with  (mind!) total, entire, thorough indifference ?"  "Why, listen to you, Tom, said  Sheridan.

Now York Journal.   -  St. Helena, Juue 3.���Six hundred  Boer prisoners are now quartered  here. Cronje and his wife are comfortably housed on the hill back -of  Jamestown, while Schiel- and the  others, including old men of sixty  and boys of fourteen, are��encamped  in tents at Deadwood on fine grass  land at an altitude of more than  ] 700 feet, and half a mile in front  of Longwood, the famous house in  which "Napoleon" died. And right  comfortable these prisoners of Avar  must be, for while Jamestown is at  this time of the year a veritable  "-lew-pan, made the hotter and more  uncomfortable bythe heat reflected  by the steep, dull red, volcanic rock  on three sides,, Deadwood is fresh  ;uid cool, with delightful views of  bill after hill and an outlook for  many miles across the deep blue  Allan tic.  Kent Cottage, which is the present home of Cronje and his small  rr-tiiiue." is v pleasantly situated,  i hough the approach is by no means  Htiticing. It is just such a cottage  a* may be seen on the outskirts of  many an English village. Imagine  ��������� u unpretentious two-storied dwel;  ling with slate roof, and yellow-  "������.nahed walls standing out clearly  1"i om a.background of hillside. The  window frames and shutters ' are  ]tainted' the same shade of green  That you may see any.day,at a  Dutch farm house in the Pearl dis-,  trict of the" Cape Colony. ' In front1  ruiis a veranda, aud there is "a  slightly raised "stoop." ��� There is  al-jp some pretence at a flower gar-  di\i, but it is sadly-neglected.' The  garden is enclosed by a black-  wooden paling," and still further in  front is a little more cultivated  laud with, banana and a few other  trees. Tho scene is simplicity itself,  ��� ' but for the bell tent iu the right-  hand front corner of the garden, and  -the steady tramp of khaki-clad sen-  t ries, east,- west, north and soubh.  SILENT, SATURNINE CRONJE.  ,On the stoep- and- beneath the  " verandah for the best part of the  flay sits general Cronje, dark of  visage, somewhat long-bearded, and  with hair turning gray. His eyes  - '"aio deep-set,.dark" and ferret-like,  and his demeanor is one of extreme  reserve.' Piet Cronje can speak  English almost as well as any Trans-  vaaler'of Dutch extraction, but you  'may ply him in vain with questions  in' English. He positively refuses  to speak anything but his native  "raal", and even then'his replies are  ������"; little more than monosyllables. He  h-\_ little to say about anything,  iimris^ifflcultibdraraw. Of course,  lie feels his position. You may see  that written large upon his face;  but, contrary to what so many  ���people think, he appears to be very  -,*fateful for any kindness that is  shown him,- and fully appreciates  i he efforts that are made to secure  bi.-* comfort. Beyond this he is as  the Sphinx. He sits in tho brooding attitude of Napoleon.  It is a strange character, this of  Piet Cronje. Charges of terrible  ��� cruelty have been laid at his door,  and somehow, when you carefully  regard his face, you feel sure that  bhe man is capable of violating the  t orms of an armistice or firing on  the women and children's laager.  Yet there are soine redeeming'  features, as, for example, when the  fire of patriotism lights his eye,  and more particularly in. the hom-  a ire paid to his wife.  All day long Mrs. Cronje, iii rusty  1 lack dress and black Boer "kap-  ).ie," is the defeated general's- close  companion. Others who are blood  relations may emerge from the  house and remain for a brief time  beneath the veranda, but there is  ���tboub them the restlessness and  impetuosity of the younger Boer  when under restraint.  When, for instance,. I was at  Kent cottage, .there came within  1 .")0 yards, just outside the cordon  of sentries, two young subalterns  with field glasses and snapshot  ivuneras. Of course .they were inquisitive. The general and his  wife were screened by the closed  end of the veranda; but a younger,  relative was extremely annoyed,  lie was a fine, tall young fellow in  blurt-sleeves   and : the   inevitable  PAUL   KRUGER'S   VISION.  Of the concession system, in  which centers half the corruption  of the Transvaal, Mr. Kruger has  been the main pillar. To secure  the raad without securing him, is,  for a concessiqnnaire,'-useless; in  the opposite case he has often used  his power to commit and coerce the  raad. Some of his strongest  speeches have been devoted to  screening and prolonging the worst  of the concessions���those in which  the concessionaires rob the revenue  as much as they rob the miner or  consumer. "When it came out about  certain presents accepted by legislators from concessionaires, it was the  president who spoke in defense of  such spoiling of the Egyptians, and  said he saw no harm in it; so that  if men misconstrue the large fortune that the president is known to  have acquired, it is only by assuming the private example from the  public precept. But enough on this  subject; it is a wart in the portrait;  and   a disconcerting   one to  the  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B.

Then he hurriedly entered the.house, but only to emerge  a minute later, if anything more  restless than ever. ���*  Cronje, however, and his wife,  havo acquired the art of sitting  still. His attachment to her is very  great. Talk to him on any subject  and he will immediately make reference to her views and acts.

Quite a different man is commandant Schiel. Hero cyou have one  who has received "training in European - military schools. There is  much of the soldier of fortune about  him; . but there is much that is  superficial and insincere. When I  last-saw commandant Schiel |he was  a prisoner on board her majesty's  ship Penelope,; at ..Simon's Town.  Today he has recovered'from his  wound and occupies a tent standing  alone and within sight of the house  in which Napoleon lived and died.  But it is the same Schiel.  At Simon's Town the sight* of  ladies in a boat approaching the  prison ship sent him into an ecstacy  of delight, and he would chatter  away with fervor about " the d ear  ladies." Almost as soon as I stepped  ashore at St. Helena there was  placed in my hands' a photograph  of Schiel" being driven along ��� the  main street on his way to Dead-  wood camp. ��� His eyes were raised  and you follow their direction to an  open window on an upper floor at  which sat rtwo girls. Yes, .-I  thought, it is the same Schiel. Talk  to him at Deadwood and there is  the same assumption���it is not real  ���of the. old sdevil-rnay-care spirit.  " Next time I fight," he says, "it  shall be on the side of the British,"  but you'feel instinctively that if lie  ever fights again it will ^be on the  side that pays him best. '      ''     " ~  "-."Oh, the war will not 'last long,"  he tells you; "that is, if one thing  happens. If you beat the -Boers  well at Kroonstaadt it will all be  over in three weeks."_  ��� Then he will change his tune.  The assumed gayety passes away,  and almost pleadingly he will ��� tell  you that he is not at, all /well  treated, and that he has made ap-  plicatiorTto be allowed to roam "the  island on parole. Yet, all the time  this insincere creature knows that  he has been guilty of more attempts  to escape than any other of the  prisoners.  The Boer prisoners are being'well  treated. This I know as a fact, and  as the result of personal inquiries  and observation on the spo't.' But,  of course, there will be some objectors. Schiel, for example, declares  that the British prisoners at Pretoria are permitted to go out picnicking and so forth; and then he  -willniakecomparisons.���Bntofthis-  statement we have no confirmation.  .Other prisoners, however, speak  well of their treatment, and I do  know as a fact that all of them are  better fed and get more fresh meat  than their guards.  Unfortunately, sickness had broken out among the Boer prisoners  before they left the Cape. The sick,  however, are extremely well cared  for. As I write there are twenty in  the hospital out of the 500 on shore  and two have died. These were  accorded military honors and were  buried over the hill just beyond  Cronje's new home.

In this Kruger is a Verulam, rather  than a Cromwell. -  Paul Kruger is a visionary; what  is his vision?   It is of a sort of  oligarchic    theocracy,  with   Paul  Kruger as its   Melchizedek, priest  and king in one.   He sees the faithful sitting each under his own gum  tree, ou his own stoep, and as far as  his.eye ranges that is his farm, and  >his cattle are on a score, of hills.  The young men are stalwart, great  hunters before the Lord, and the  young   women   are    grossly* built  and fruitful.   And   to each   farm  there is a made road and a dam,  and the stranger in the laqd pays  for the same.   The stranger keeps  to   himself  in   the    city,   and - is  more or less godless, for he is not of  the chosen in the Promised Land.  But he gives no trouble, for he is  well disposed, and looks to thp-raad  for his laws in due. season.   The  burgher has his Kaffirs, who do his  work, but they are not cruelly used  because they obey.   The sons of the  soil are not tooomuch educated, because that   spoils an   Afrikander;  but enough so as tobe able to hold all  offices of state, that these may be  purged - of the -Hollander and. the  German,    no   less    than-' the - accursed , English or English-hearted  Afrikander. '    it  And ��� above all- sits Paul Kruger,  father of his people, dwelling in the  house that the concessionaire Nell-  mapins gave ��� him,. {wealthy,' but  thrifty, living as simply as he used  to live on the farm, save that  sheep's head - and-, trotters come  round somewhat oftener. And the  judges come to him to know how  they shall'judge, and the raad members to know' what laws; they -shall  make; and- on Sundays all, come" to  the" little chapel ,near~ to hear him  expound the word 'of God and the.  truth as set forth by the Separatist  Reformed Brethren. And there is  peace in the earth. "And it is flat,  and the sun goes round- it. '  WHY  INDIA   STARVES.  In large districts,, of India today  millions of cattle could hot be sold  for 50 cents a head. The country,  yellow and parched,'has been turned  into a desert by the failure of the  Monsoon' rains. There are grass  lands and fodder in other parts of  India,' but the poor animals are too  weak to* be driven to them, even if  there were cattle buyers to take  them away; so they die like flies,  succumbing to starvation far more  quickly than their owners; The  thought has never occurred - to the  35,000,000 Indian- peasantry now  suffering from hunger that the  cattle would have been a food resource to tide them over the months  of crop failure. They have plenty  of cattle. Among all the animals of  India the various breeds- of horned  and humped cattle hold' the first,  place. They are the draft animals  in   the little field, of-the, poorest  peasant. All the transportation of  the inland roads depends upon'  them. The household that has not  its cow is in the direst poverty.

They v; o.ild never drca*n f such a  profanity of the teachings of Brah-  minism. They would rather swallow  dirt and gnaw roots than eat beef,  and yet they are not strict vegetarians, for all eat butter and milk,  and also fish and mutton when they  can procure them.  The Hindus and those who share  with them their religious beliefs  are just what history teaches us  their fathers were three and twenty  centuries ago. r,.The .highest law  that concerns the Hindu is to eat  correctly, and beef is-one of the  proscribed foods; so with this food  resource in every farmyard, prized  highly, as it is, by most of the"  world, the Hindu dies of hunger  rather than pai-takd of it. These  facts are perhaps^as impressiye.an  illustration' as can be given of  the "profound influence which relig-  'ious injunction and custom have  upon the habits,' tastes and prejudices.   ' ��� *���  The value of East Indian cattle  for food'has been "amply demonstrated. The' 57,000,000 Mahom-  medans living in India * have no  qualms or scruples about beef eating.  Some years "ago we ��� read almost  daily for' a time of bloodshed  between the Mahommedans and  Hindus of northwest India. The  Hindu neighbors" of the Moslems  decided'/that their feelings had  been outraged too long ,by the  repugnant ' spectacle" of cattle  shambles and beef eating. , They  resolved to put an end to them, but  the under taking-was* too' large for  the comparatively "small number of  zealots who engaged in it.  In this vast region, so densely  peopled that the specter of famine  is not far away % even in years of  plenty/ no meats are imported  except for European consumers. If  there is a partial failure of- rice,  wheat, maize, barley or the indi-  geneous * grainsJ>" on , which ' the  laborer liv%s,,'starvation begins at  once"; and so while India sells'to  the" world every - year - from $250,-  000,000 to $350,000,000 worth of  products,." and   buys about three-  fourths as much as she sells, her purchases are almost wholly textiles,  machinery, railroad material and  coal, even when hunger stalks  abroad: and the main reason why  the great evil of famine is uot  averted or mitigated by food imports is because the religious tenets  of most of the people confine them  to the few cereals they raise themselves as the mainstay of life. In  one respect, liowever, religious  prejudice is a blessing to the coun  try. It is to the lasting shame of  some modern nations that they destroy thousands of barbarous .-'or  semi-civilized men and women by  selling them poison in the form of.  the purest qualities of alcholic  liquors; but they find no market for  their fiery gin and forty-rod among-  the hundreds of millions of East Indians, because Islam throughout tbe  world is a vast teetotal society, and  among the Hindus to touch liquor  is a sign of the lowest caste., Thus  certain religions which, we do not  include, among the highest forms,  have happily reared an insurmountable barrier against one of * the  worst evils of Western civilization.

Borden Killed in Action.  Ottawa,   July  17.���[Special  to  The Tribune.]���Laurier in the house  tonight made a touching reference  to the death of lieutenant, Borden,  son of the minister of militia, who  was killed in action near Pietoria  yesterday. Young Borden was 23  years of age, and was major and in  command of the King's Hussars be-  fore-going~to^South_Africa7_~The'  news of young Borden's death was  cabled by lord Roberts to the  governor-general and was communicated to the militia department. The deputy-minister ��� of  militia and colonel McDonald,  director of stoies, waited on the  premier and got him to break the  sad news to Dr. Borden. The  father was greatly broken up, but  quickly pulled himself together and  went and told Mrs. Borden. Young  Borden was six feet, three inches  in height, of excellent physique and  a splendid horseman. He weighed  189 pounds. Ho was studying,  medicine at McGiir before going to  South Africa. Davin also referred  in feeling terms to young Borden's  death.         House Prorogues Today.

Crough, Munroe and Fisher  were the star men on the winning  team, and Thompson, Dill and Hall  were well to the fore among the  benedicts.  Following was the line-up;  BCXEUICTS. l'OSITION*.
