London, June 28.���The magnitude of the arrangements Japan is  making suggests provision against  contingencies other than the suppression of present disturbances in  China. She has chartered 19 additional transports and has now 25  iu all.  It is  thought at Shanghai  that  now that Tien Tsin is relieved, the  '   combined international  forces  will  have no difficulty in reaching  Pekin, though it is expected it will be  .���foufid that all the  foreigners  have  already left.    It is claimed that the  reports an to  the  damage done at  - Tien Tsin and the casualties among  -the foreign forces have been highly  colored.  The- exodus of Chinese -from  Shanghai is unabated. Every  steamer i_, thronged and the au-  ��� - .lidrities havc been obliged" to resort to the use of the fire hose to  prevent the fugitives from overcrowding the vessels. The commander of the' British first-class  cruiser .Undaunted, however, has  . landed largo supplies of rifles and  ammunition, and guns have been  placed in position at commanding  points, with the result that the  foreigners are confident they can  overcome any attack on the settlement, into which tho foreigners  from the out stations are rapidly  congregating.  According to a dispatch from New  Chwang, the Russians there are  barely able to cope with the situation. The Chinese, it appears, are  are burning all the railroad  .'''material, killing isolated Russians  at every opportunity and destroying the coal mines;  The St. James Gazette expresses  theopinLonJihatJChinaJs-iiteachin g_  America the impossibility of a great  trading nation avoiding imperialism," adding: "America's experience will teach her it is not the  desire to grab distant lands, but  ���unavoidable destiny, that drives  Great Britain ever forward. Washington has no choice bnt to protect  the imperilled American citizens  and having once intervened in  China to protect her interests she  shall uover be able to shake from  her shoes the dust of the celestial  empire."     Got Lots of Sympathy.  New York, June 28.���Abraham  Fischer, A. D. Wolmarans audC. If.  Wessels, the Boer envoys, sailed  for Europe on the steamship  L'Aquitaiue today. "We are indeed gratified with the reception  which has been given us in this  country," said Mr. Fischer, "we feel  that the people of the American  republic sympathize with us in the  struggle we are making in South  Africa. Everywhere we have received expressions of that sympathy. The Boers are still fighting  for their independence and they  aro hopeful of the result."  Boy Burglar Sentenced.  Niagara Falls, June 28.���Edward Baker, the 19-year-old burglar who Avas arrested by detective  JJoyninhan last evening for burglarizing the Michigan Central station at Niagara Falls Centre the  night of the 19th inst., had his  trial this morning before magistrate Logan, and was found guilty  on two indictments. He will serve  a term of one year and 364 days in  tlio Central prison, and a second  term of six months.  MINISTERS' FATE DOUBTFUL  Li's Dispatch Not Believed.  Washington, June 28.���The day's  developments   in    Chinese    affairs  were meagre, and the general opinion here is that the two  messages  received, one from Kempff and the  other from Li Hung Chang, could  not be accepted as  settling the important question as to the fate of  the foreign ministers at Pekin and  their families  and  attaches.    The  secretary of the navy, by special  instruction  of  the president,  had  been   particular to  cable admiral  Keniff several days ago to keep the  navy   department     informed :  of  everything that happened within  the     zone     of     disturbance     in  Chiua,     and     it      is     . believed  that   . his     omission     to     make  any   reference   in   his   cablegram  this morning as to the whereabouts  of the  ministers, was based  upon  the.absence of any, information  on  -that subject  at- Taku,'--where tho  admiral  is -with   his  flagship, the  Newark.     Aud  iP no information  could bo had at Taku, only thirty  miles  down   the river   from   Tien  'Tsin, of the presence of the ministers in admiral Seymour's  column,  but eight miles distant, the officials  here cannot   understand  how any  other government could have superior facilities, and so they felt justified  in waiting . for  further advices before accepting the Chinese  statements on that point as  accurate.  Minister Wu, who brought Li's  message to the state department,  coidd not explain away the points  of variance between the viceroy's  statements and the cable messages  received from other sources. However, he pinned his faith to the  accuracy of them, and pointed out  that it agreed closely with admiral  Kempff's   messageL_jpf yesterday,  stating that the miuisters were reported to be with Seymour.  The navy department has had  further communication with admiral Kempff iu the shape of two  messages, one touching on the  strength of the foreign forces ashore  in China, and another which the  officials stated had no bearing upon  the military situation, but in  neither was there any mention of  the ministers.  One consideration which makes  against the acceptance by the officials of the assurance of minor Chinese officials, including Li Hung  Chang and minister Wu, that a  state of war does not exist, is the  fact that Mr. Conger is not permitted to communicate with his government by the same means era-  ployed by the Tsung Li. Yamen in  getting news to the outside world,  leading to a suspicion that he has  not that perfect liberty which  marks the existence of a state of  peace.  It is possible that the Chinese  government may be able to offer a  satisfactory explanation on this  point, but at present the officials  say our future relations with China  depend altogether upon what minister Conger has to say when he is  finally brought again in touch with  the state department.  Tenders for Gaol Supplies.  Government agent Turner has  decided that the tenders of the following named were the lowest for  supplies for the provincial goal at  Nelson for the year ending June 30,  1901: For coal, W. P. Tierney; tor  meat, West Kootenay Butcher Company; for bread, R. G. Joy; for groceries, Kirkpatrick & Wilson.  Alleged Exposures.  London, June 28.���The exposures  regarding the hospitals in South  Africa, which began with a three-  column letter in the Times Monday  from W. A. Burdett-Coutts, Conservative member of parliament for  Westminster, detailing the great  suffering endured by soldiers owing  to mismanagement, led to a number  of questions in the house of commons today, in response to which  the government leader, A. J. Balfour, the first lord of the treasury,  made a long statement, during the  course of which he said that so far  as the government was aware, not  any of the sufferings of the sick ��� or  wounded were due to the insufficiency in the supplies furnished.  He then proceeded to read extracts from correspondence with  lord Roberts on the same subject,  in which the British commander-in-  chief in South Africa dwelt on the  difficulties of transport owing to  his rapid advance. He could quite  understand that people imperfectly  experienced in these matters were  concerned at hearing of the hardships the sick and wounded had to  undergo. He said he did not wish  to shirk from responsibility or  screen any one, and suggested that  a committee of medical men and  persons of sound- common sense  : proceed to South Africa to investigate the charges.  Mr. Balfour informed the house  that the government agreed to the  appointment of an independent  committee as suggested by lord  Roberts, and he would propose a  nominal grant for the army medical  corps so that the house would have  an opportunity to thresh out the  matter.  London, June 28.���The war office  has issued the correspondence with  lord Roberts regarding the charges  of Mr. Burdett-Coutts. On June  4th his. attention was called in  brief telegrams to the allegations,  and also to. other complaints of a  -general break down in the hospital  system. Two days later he replied  in part as follows:  "The principal medical officer reported that the arrangements at  Kroonstadt were in all respects in  good order, and lord Methuen said  they were thoroughly satisfactory.  I was deeply distressed at being  unable to make suitable arrangements for the sick on our first arrival at Kroonstadt, but it is obvious  that a certain amount of suffering  is inseparable from the rapid advance of a large army into an  enemy's country."  On June 20 the war office cabled  lord Roberts that, disquieting reports regarding the hospitals were  accumulating, and asking him if  anything could be done and particularly whether more nurses were  needed.  On June 25 lord Roberts replied,  .saying=that5=he-did=not=wish=to=  shirk responsibility or to screen the  shortcomings of the medical corps,  and he suggested a committee of  inquiry.  He said that there had been an  abnormal number of sick at Bloemfontein due to the exhausting nature of the march, and the terribly  unsanitary conditions at the camp  at Paardeburg, where the only water available for drinking flowed  from the Boer camp higher up,  where the river was crowded with  decomposing animals and also with  a considerable number of wounded  after the fight on March 10.  To improvise accommodations at  Bloemfontein for such a number,  which had become 7,000 before he  left Bloemfontein, was no easy task,  said lord Roberts. No tents were  carried and the public buildings had  to be turned into hospitals.  In three months there had been  6,739 admissions to the hospital of  patients suffering from enteric  fever, while the deaths numbered  1,370, about 21 per cent.  Lord Roberts observed that he'  did not know whether this would!  be an abnormal rate in a civil hospital in peace times, but if the rate  were abnormal, it was due to the  exhausted state of the men, and not  to the neglect of the medical corps.  Adansis. Cobina vFoli, heir to  "Adam's stool," is a'prisouer of the  British. He professes loyalty. The  revolt, he says, has been simmering  for a year. All the tribes except  the Bekwais, according to his account, object to paying British  taxes. He says the golden stool is  made of wood covered with thin  gold plates."  ADMIRAL SEYMOUR IS SAVED  . Never Got to Pekin.  Ciibpoo, June 28, via Shanghai,  noon.���Admiral Seymour's expedition has been relieved, having failed  to connect with Pekin.- There is no  news from Pekin. >. The Russian  general, Schlelle, commanding the  combined forces of 10,000 men, is  supposed to be proceeding to Pekin.  Admiral Seymour's expedition is  returning to Tien Tsin. His force  has suffered greatly. It is estimated that from 40,000 to 00,000 Chinese troops are now before Pekin.  Boxers from all sections are swarming there.  The Russian general in command  of the relief force had decided, in  view of Saturday's heavy fighting  and marching, that one day's rest  for the troops was essential, and  that the advance should not be resumed until today.. Meanwhile  admiral , Seymour's... heliograph  flashed a message that 'his position  was desperate and that he could  only hold out two days. The relief  started at dawn.  OITY   LOCAL   NEWS.  S. A. Heybridge, of Slocan Junction, was before E. A. Crease,  stipendiary magistrate, yesterday,  upon a charge of violating the game  laws in having exposed for sale a  portion of a deer during the close  season.

Every-,  thing points to a record attendance  and a bumper celebration next  Monday and Tuesday.  As there has been some enquiry  as to when the entries close for the  vaiious sporting events during the  Dominion Day celebration, it may  be said that, with the exception of  the drilling contest and of the four-  oared races, competitors can enter  on the ground up to the time of the  races starting.  MANY CHRISTIANS IN PERIL  Builders of Taku Forts.  Berlin. June 28.���The Cologne  Volks Zeitung has received a cablegram saying the situation in the  mission districts in the southern  part of the province of Shan Tung  js now extremely threatening. JPro^  "vicar Frienandomatz telegraphs  from Zeining on the grand canal  that the missionaries there are  without protection and their lives  are in great danger. According to  the same paper, there are in Pekin  110,000 Catholics, with 25 Catholic  missionaries and one hundred Protestant missionaries. Tho Volks  Zeitung expresses astonishment  that none of these people have been  able to send news to the coast.  General A'on Dcunekin, formerly  military instructor in the Chinese  army, replying to a statement in  the English press that the Taku  forts were built by German engineers, say they were built by  Chinese mechanics aud afterwards  remodelled by Americans.  The Vorwaorts complains that  the German government is taking  all the various steps in China without consulting the reichstag, which  is now adjourned; whereas the  British and French parliaments are  in session, and the governments of  London and Paris must make reports to them upon the progress of  events.    It adds:  " It is high time that our people  recognized the danger threatening  them and that they called the government to a strict account."  Victoria, June 28.���[Special to The Tribvne.]���In a letter to the  Martinite executive declining to be a candidate in opposition to  Turner, ex-governor Mclnnes says:',  "For ten months the province has been in a condition of political  unrest, and business interests, particularly in regard to mining', industries, have been seriously affected in consequence. Over nine  months ago I urged upon my then ministers the advisability of an  immediate session, or an immediate general election, in order to- end.  the political uncertainty then existing. The Ottawa government,  however, by a wholly unwarranted exercise of power, against which  I protested, forbade me to interfere with the time at which my ministers saw fit to summon the legislature. At whose instigation, and  in whose interests they saw fit to do this, I do not say, but it was  certainly not in the interests of the people of the province. And  when one whom they chose to treat as a political enemy was called  upon, they expected me to adopt an altogether different attitude toward him.  "Had my hands not been tied by Ottawa instructions the political turmoil of the last nine months would, in all probability, have  ended long ago. But, be that as it may, the fact remains that the  province has just gone through an exhausting and unsettling political campaign, and I believe it to be nowin the interests of -all that  until the present government has had time to pass the necessary estimates and private legislation and to enunciate their policy, they  should not be opposed.-    - '  "Moreover, in this particular case, I could hardly bring myself  to oppose a minister on his bye-election for the very office to which  I myself had sworn and appointed him. For these reasons I have also  declined to allow myself to be nominated for South Victoria and  South Nanaimo."  XXXXXXXXXXI-XI  xninif  KILLING NATIVE CHRISTIANS  ������������ _  Dead General Cashiered.  Vancouver, June .28.���According to Shanghai papers received by  the steamer Empress of China today the first legation guards to enter Pekin were the Americans from  .the/cruiser Newark.

Sn  one station of the American Methodist mission ten Christians were  killed, most of them women and  children. A station of tho American  board mission Avas destroyed and  everyone there killed. Native  adherents of the church of England  have also been killed, but the names  of none of these victims are yet to  hand, except that madame Aztier  and Messrs. Ossent and Cadu are  reported as among tho foreign victims of the Boxers, without stating  their station locations.  Brigadier general Yang, who was  ambushed and murdered near Pao  Ting Fu while en route to inyesti-  gate ajcase_of^reported^m.urdei*wof=  Christians, is to be cashiered in  spite of his death, the charge  against him being disobedience of  orders in that he had been ordered  to investigate and "not come to  blows with the mob."

Boers Want Leniency.  New York, June 28.���A dispatch  to the Tribune from London says:  Martinus Pretorius, the first president of the Transvaal, in an interview with the Express correspondent in Potchefstroom, said that he  had never been in favor of the war,  and he had in fact told president  Kruger so. He is of the opinion  that the burghers will settle under  the British rule if leniency is shown  toward them. Mr. Reitz is reported  to have stated that the Boers are  in a position to carry on a guerilla  warfare for three months or longer.  Jeffrie- May Fight Buhlin.

"More than 4000 rifles and 1000  inferior pieces have been taki;u  during the lasfc few days. He declares that thirty Boers have h thrived at Rustenberg, going to their  homes, from ��� DelareyV commando.  They would have left before if thoy  had seen the proclamation, which  was carefully withheld by the Boer  authorities."  Lord Roberts said -that Wednesday, June 27th, was a record market day in Pretoria for Boer farmers selling produce.  Parties of Boers still hang on  general Buller's flanks.  F.   R.

Whatever advantage such ari innovation might   have from  a public  point of view, ifc can  scarcely be  said thafc the interests of  Canada's  greatest railway  have suffered  by  the efforts of the company's lobby-  byists.- If the lobbyists are to be  withdrawn  it should be  upon   the  score that the Canadian parliament  has no concession within  its gift,  which could be turned to practical  account by the railway company. It  now has what virtually amounts to  a monopoly of the carrying  trade  of the Dominion.  "Ifc receives a bonus for every mile .of road which ifc  builds, and has  the power to prevent others from building roads at  their, own    expense.     Apparently  all that is left for the raihvay company's. lobbyists is the safeguarding of the concessions 'which it al-  Mtx& Mvibxxixz.  The Toronto Telegram,. in discussing.the recent slump in Canadian Pacific railway stocks, ventures the suggestion that if the di-  ready enjoys. ;  The taxation of railway   lands  will be one of the issues in the next  Federal campaign. -' The Richard-  sou resolution, which was offeree! in  the house of commons this  session,  may be regarded as the commencement  of the movement.    True it  was   snowed   under   by   ah   overwhelming   majority, but   it was  not disposed of before   one very  material fact was   demonstrated;  this was, that until some acfciou is  taken   by   parliament,   the bonus  lands held by the Canadian  Paciiic  Railway Company Avill continue to  be exempt from taxation.    Wheu  the laud  grant was made to the  company it was   the  expressed intention   of   the   government  that  twenty years later they should become taxable; but it now appears  that the   time-honored  ambiguity  intervenes   between   the   raihvay  company and the tax gatherer.    Ifc  is a' debatable point whether the  lands became taxable 20 years after  the subsidy was granted;   whether  20   years   after   the   railway  was  complttsd;   or whether 2.0 . years  after the technical act of patenting  the land.     Mr.  Richardson  endeavored to have parliament declare  that the period of exemption would  expire 20 years after the granting  of the subsidy, bufc  this  was  too J  radical   for   sir   Wilfrid    and   sir j  Charles alike. Whether they will  favor the construction that the  lands become taxable 20 years  after the completion of the road,  which would give the raihvay company a respite till 1907; or that  they do not become taxable until  20 years after the raihvay company  sees fit to have them patented; is  the issue which concerns the people.  This is what the ambiguity amounts  to, and it is a "heads you win, tails  I lose" proposition for every one  save the railway company.  The biographies which have been  published   of    the    late    William  Christie, of Toronto, have started a  peculiar   controversy���whether  or"  nofc William  Christie had been  in  reality a great man.   Those who  contend that he was nofc infer that  if Mr. Christie  was  endowed wifch  talents wifch which his biographers  credit   him   he   would have  been  known otherwise than as the maker  of   biscuits.    While   this  may, be  true  it is likewise true  that Mr.  Christie may have been great without possessing one half of the  talents credited to him.   The average  biographer claims too much for the  man whose life he endeavors to set  before the  public.    William Christie was undoubtedly the most successful maker of biscuits that Canada has seen.    The first half of his  life was  spent  in  building up this  reputation, the latter half in maintaining ifc.    Ifc was  William  Christie's life endeavor to be a maker of  good   biscuits.     He  wa.s  a   great  man, equally great with  the  men  who made  great  speeches  or who  enacted good laws.    The fault lies  more  wifch  the biographers,   however, than wibh  the  public.

Die discovery on Friday creek of
what is known as Jauiieson's Lost
Mine. As far back as 1SSG this
mine was known toexist.it being
the first copper discovery made in
the Similkameen.' Old timers well
remember hearing Mr. Jamieson
toll of his rich strike and of its location, but those were the stirring
days of placer mining and the location was left to lie in idlenessfor the
coming progress of civilization. On
his deathbed Mr. Jamieson described
minutely its exact location, at the
.same time pointing out the fact
that one was liable to travel right
over the spot' without discovering
it. Since that time many attempts
have been made to find the mine,
but all were unavailing. It was
left, for a party with no knowledge of the country or of
minerals to make the discovery.
Mrs. S. Spencer, whose husband has
ciiarge of the Royalty group of
claims, was the lucky party and it
happened thus : Mrs. Spencer who
is with her husband on Friday
creek was out looking for berries,
and while hunting them by an old
corral she happened to notice a peculiar looking .formation of rock.
IVospector like she - proceeded
to secure a sample .and upon
returning to camp she showed
her find to her husband, who
immediately pronounced it a very
fine specimen of copper ore. As
soon as he could he proceeded to
the spot and upon looking the
ground over realized that indeed
his wife had made a rich find. The
rock is of a very rich grade of copper, similar to the cropping on the

very little doubt but what this is

Tragic indeed is every incident
connected with the battlefield, but
more so are some of the mysterious
occurrences which have; oft times
taken place during'a campaign, and
which might be put down as cold
blooded murders. It seems a very
hard-fought conflict the origin of a
man's death can be determined—
that is to say, whether he died by
the hands of one of his comrades or
by those of the enemy; consequently, men with a grievance against
their oflicers have often made use
of such opportunities to wipe off
old scores, and have gone undiscovered.
A notable instance of this occurred just before the battle of
Woerth, in the Franco-Prussian
war. A certain oflieer of considerable repute had got himself generally disliked by his perseverance in
bullying those under him. A few
days before this the first great
battle of the war, when the French
were Hearing the border in their
hopeless endeavor to reach Berlin,
a rumor ran through the camp late
at night that the Prussians were
advancing and would shortly be up.
Instantly pandemonium reigned,
and scouting parties were sent out
in all directions. One of these was
under the officer in question, and
when some way from camp was
fired upon, the bullet bringing him
down. The Frenchmen, thinking
they had got into an ambush, retired, firing at an invisible foe, as
they did so, but as no counter shots
were received they grew courageous
again, and, after being re-inforced,
advanced to the fatal spot. The
body of the officer was found, but
not so that of his assailant, who
had evidently escaped unscathed.
On returning to the camp it was
found that no trace of., the enemy
had been discovered; in fact, at the
time the Prussians were far away
from the spot on the other side of

the Woerth. Accordingly a postmortem examination, was held, on
the officer's body and a French service bullet was extracted therefrom
but the murder was never detected,
although he was doubtless in the
camp and had slipped out unawares
to commit the crime.
But this is only one of the many
tragedies which took place during
the war, and it is said-that at least
two per cent of the French officers
killed fell by the hands of their
own men, and a little over half
In the former, instances the crimes
were due for the most , part to the
national feeling of never forgetting
a grievance, and in the latter to
the rigidity of the discipline which
sometimes amounts to bullying.
Even Marshall Bazaine was nearly
murdered before he capitulated at
Metz. He was by no means a
popular man, and on this account
always stood in dread of the assassin, and his fears were not lessened when a plot was discovered
to put poison in his.food, the scheme
being hatched by his own men.
The offenders, or some of them,
were promptly tried and shot before many hours were over.
A rather sad case is forwarded in c
connection with the Italian disaster
at Adowa of- a few years ago.
During the melee a man was seen
to shoot in the direction of his captain, who ^at the sarnie time fell
mortally; wounded. , When the
battle was over the man was
charged with the crime, and after a
scant trial by his comrades, despite
his protests of innocence, one of .the
chief reasons for his condemnation
being that he was known to have a
grievance against the officer.
Nevertheless, the affair was. soon
forgottten till some nine months
afterwards, when a soldier came
forward from the same regiment,
self-charged with the crime. He
related the facts in detail, giving
his motive as petty tyranny on the
part of the officer some years previously when he, the murderer, was
a recruit, and stated that he would
never have given himself .up had
not another man died in his stead.
Needless to say this did not excuse
him, and he perished in the prison
yard at Naples.
Not many months ago three
Spanish soldiers were executed at
Madrid for the alleged murder of
an officer during the hostilities in
Cuba, although the evidence against
them was very meagre. Sufficient
was. it that subsequent to the
battle of San Juan the officer was
found dead some distance from the
battlefield with a Mauser bullet in
his brain, aud the three men referred to were seen in the vicinity
at about the time the affair must
have taken place. Of. course, they
may have been" justly condemned,
as tragedies of this nature were especially frequent iii the Spanish
army throughout the. war ; but at
the same time the authorities failed
to take into account that there were
many so-called "loyal" Cubans attached to the Spanish forces, and
and also present at St. Juan, who
had been given Mauser rifles and
but whose dislike to Spanish officers
was proverbial.
Although such crimes are more
common in the continental armies
than in our own, we must not imagine that similar cases have never

taken place in which Tommy. Atkins has participated. In the Zulu
war, just prior to the battle of
Uhmdi, a young lieutenant in one
of the line regiments was found
shot some way from the camp, and
after the campaign a soldier on his
death bed at Devonport confessed
to the crime.
Similarly, too, during the hostilities in the Soudan in 1885, an
officer of some repute, was found to
have been mysteriously killed by
an English bullet, and although the
affair was hushed up and put down
to the dervishes, who were said to
have obtained some British rifles by
inexplicable mean?, it Avas subsequently disclosed that, whereas,
they actually did gain possession of
some of our rifles, they obtained no
ammunition with them. Despite
this significant, fact, however, the
perpetrator of the crime was never
