NELSON:  FRIDAY MORNING JULY 27 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  KEMPFFS ACTION AT TAKU  His Official Report.  ���Washington. July 20.���The navy-  department has just made public  t"    following additional chapter iu  v.   liral KemplFs report:  jj. S. Flagship Newark, Taku,  Chiua, July 20th, 1900 :  Sir.���Referring to my recent  actions in declining to take part in  the seizure of the Taku. forts and  in afterwards making common  cause with the foreign forces in the  protection of foreign life and property, I would respectfully state that  the Chinese government is now  paralyzed, and the secret ^edicts  show that it is in sympathy with  the Boxers.  Second���-The fact that under the  existing circumstances the troops  at the forts were giveu much extra  drills, aud torpedoes provided and,  it ia claimed, planted in the entrance of the Pei Ho, was consideredmenacing and by other senior  naval oflicers sufficient cause to  .justify them in demanding the  temporary occupation of the forts.  This culminated in the bombardment of the forts by the other foreign gunboats on the morning of  the 17th inst. which has been  described. In this bombardment  tho Monocacy was fired upon and  struck without having received  previous warning.  .Third���Sb is now necessary to  join with the other,foreign powers  for the common defence and preservation of foreign life and the honor  of our country.  ���  Fourth���I refused to join in taking possession of the imperial  Chinese railway station, aiid also  declined to join in the demand for  the temporary occupation of the  Taku forts, for I thought it agaiust  the policy and wishes of our government to be entangled with other  foreign powers in such a step, and  ��� also because it endangered the lives  of the people in the interior in  advance of absolute necessity, for  up to..early morning of June 17th  ~tfc��jf''r"Cuinege government'"had* not"  t'Jj.^imitt'ed," so* far as lam aware,  any act of open hostilities toward  the foreign armed forces.  Fifth. In opening fire without  " warning, an act of war was committed when many shots were fired  at the place where the Monocacy  was moored���about 3000 yards from  the forts. Those firing must have  known of her presence there as she  had been moored in that position  for a number of days.  Under these circumstances I regarded the situation as one involving the protection for the national  honor and the preservation of our  people, and have acted accordingly.  . (Signed) Louis Kempff, rear admiral U. S. N.  for mediation demanded by president McKiniey, published in Berlin  this morning, place the United  States in substantially the same  position as Germany and France.  Nevertheless the German press continues to assert that the Washington government is trying to part  company with the powers. The  Freisinuige Zeituug remarks that  all the powers, with one exception,  refuse to be deceived longer by  Chinese double dealing. That exception is the United States, which  has formally abandoned the concert  of the powers.  MINES ON WOODBURY GREEK  Ll HUNG CHANG IS ANGRY  Says Ministers are Alive.  . ���" LONDON, July 20���The Shang-Hai  correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, telegraphing yesterday, says:  Li Hung Chang now states that  some members of the legations have  already left Pekin and may be expected shortly. He is becoming  angry at the scepticism of. the consuls. The impression is gaining  ground here that the ministers of  the powers to whom China has  applied for mediation may be still  alive. The representatives of France,  Japan, Russia and the United States  have visited Li Hung Chang,, but  the others still keep aloof.  The Americans here are indignant  over the fact that United States  consul Gooduow has entered iuto  relations with earl Li, but Mr.  Goodnow defends his action on the  ground that he is following the instructions of his government.  Trade in Shang-Hai is so paralyzed  that the customs' revenue will not  suffice to secure the payment of the  next installment on the foreign  loan.  Meanwhile active preparations in  the Yang Tse region for war are in  progress, not for war against the  ���rebels but against the foreign  ���powers. Loads of Chinese soldiers  ���and Boxers, disguised as coolies,  are arriving here daily. The ar-  . senal is full of arms and supplies  are constantly coming in.  America Alone Deceived.  Berlin, July 20.���The German  -foreign office, which has received  no additional news from China today, points out that the conditions  Pontiac and Tecumseh Sold.  Kaslo, Julj*- 20.���[Special to The  Tribune]��� Woodbury creek,onKoot-  enay lake is the scene of much mining activity. An important cash  deal has just been put through by  Charles Caldwell. He has purchased  the'Pontiac and Tecumseh claims on  behalf of J. D. Chaplin and B. L.  Sawyer of Toronto. Chaplin is one  of the largest shareholcers in the  Rambler-Cariboo, Deer Trail and  Bonanza mining companies..  The Pontiac and Tecumseh are  well known properties. W. L.  Scowden- had them bonded for  $05,000 two years ago. He spent  $15,000 but failed to obtain an extension of his bond. The Canadian  Pacific Mining Company, in- which  this capital is interested, is spending a large amount- of money developing claims at the mouth of  "Woodbury creek. It is about to  put in a $25,000 compressor and  hoist and may spend a quarter of a  million dollars sinking a shaft 2500  feet deep.   .  Further up the creek the Woodbury Mines, Limited, is prosecuting  active work... A Spokane company,  headed by Austin CorbinII,isputting'  up the money. A Spokane company  also owns-three claims adjoining'  the Pontiac and 'Tecumseh, and the  latter have to" be worked through  their tunnel.-..*-*.,*,-:1-,- ?.��� x- t -'���"- ,* ���; -j  Golden Eagle Mine.  Grand   Forks,  July    26.���Two  SUPPLY  BILL CONSIDERED  Legislation For Shop Girls.  Victoria, July 26.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The emergency estimates bill of $150,000 passed the  preliminary stages in the legislature  today. Of this amount $27,000 goes  to pay the debts of the old government, $20,000 for urgent public  works and the balance for salaries  and current expenses. This is the  first time such a bill has been before the house, the former method  being to get money 'by special  warrant. Mclnnes' labor bill has  been laid over for a week.  McPhillips introduced a bill, to  protect children and shop girls.  Power is given to municipal councils to order closing shops after 7  o'clock in the evening, and-this  becomes obligatory where a petition is presented from three-fourths  of the shopkeepers in the city.  Boys and girls under 16 are not to  be employed more than 74 hours a  week, 14 hours on Saturdays andl2  hours on other days, including an  hour for noon. The occupier of a,  shop in which females are employed  shall provide seats for them and  permit them their use when not engaged in work.  Any person offending against any  of the provisions will be liable to a  fine of $20, and in default of pay-  .ment to be imprisoned for one  month.       *   Contractor's Will Disputed.  Ottawa, July 20���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Hebron Harris", a well-,  know railway tie.contractor in this  district, died. recently and left an  estate valued ��� at $200,000. The  estate was left to Mrs. Harris and  niece and nephews.' Opposition to  the willnow comes from John Harris, laborer, and Charles Harris,  plumber, Kingston, who claim to be  natural sons"of-deceased,,who. died  in Syracuse, ,N. Y.,;and who, under  the United States law, are said to  be "entitled to'rank as inheritors "of  the estate.' "     J     , ���    .,,.'"  Express wires as follows Under  yesterday's date: An Italian priest  has just arrived here from Hen  Sing Fu, southern Huau, where the  Italian bishop and three priests  have been massacred after revolting  tortures. This took place on July  4. Six hundred converts were  massacred after the * women had  been subjected to . hideous brutalities. Six other,priests iled to the  hills where they were probably  killed. The ''priest who escaped  made a perilous"; journey to Hong  Kong. He hid in a coffin on board  a river boat "Tor 17 days.  SMELTER" TO START   UP  Blows  in August 7.-  - The announcement that the Hall  mines smelter will resume operations about August 7 will be received with (pleasure in Nelson.  Yesterday J. J. Campbell, commercial manager of the Hall mines, received a cablegram from the head  office of tbe company instructing  him'to proceed"at once .with the  purchase of ore. - The smelter is,  therefore, ready to contract for ore  from now on. -* '-  To The* Tribune Mr. Campbell  said':,; "I believe .there is a fair  amount of orVin the district -ay ail-  able , for the Smelter and^anTof-  opihion that the' process of purchasing ore sufficient,to keep the smelter, in bperation^and of executing  such repairs as^are". necessary will  occupy ten days.v' We will probably  "blow-in" by that time. ' The matter of putting "on men at the smelter will be governed by circumstances and notice of this will be given  later."* ; ",; -  , The staff at the,Silver King mine  under" Captain". Gifford now numbers thirty-seven and as there is no  indication of any large increase in  the immediate future, the.inference  is that the smelter is to be operated  without regard" to the supply of ore  from the King.-*;, ( _,      _  shifts are pushing development work  on the Golden EagIe,*Brown's camp,  north   fork   of   Kettle   rive.    The  main working shaft has been sunk  to a depth of 150 feet.   At the 100-  foot level No. 2 vein is eight feet  wide between walls in a twenty-  foot drift to the north.     Fifty feet  below a drift has been extended  fourteen feet in the same direction.  The vein at the bottom of the shfft  is about two and a half feet wide,  but in the face of the drift has increased to four feet. In this working  the ore isjlargely chalcopyrite with  some sulphides, small   sheaves   of  native copper also  having been encountered.     The i drift. will be extended.     It is expected that the  drift will strike No. 1 vein, exposed  iii No. 1  shaft aud in the 35-foot  cross-cut connecting both shafts at  =the=70-foot-leveli======The*=supposition-  is that the ore bodies unite and  form: one lead. No. 1 shaft has been  sunk to a depth of 70 feet. The  sixteen, ton ore shipment recently  sent to the Trail smelter was taken  from a drift at a depth of 45 feet.  The ore body in, the drift is 10 feet  wide:' At 70 feet the vein was  crosscut eight feet without encountering the hanging wall. The shipment gave a gross return of $15 in  gold, seven ounces of silver and  three per cent copper. After paying transportation by wagons to  Grand* Forks, railway freight and  treatment charges the net return  was nearly $22 per ton. The ore  even at depth is- greatly oxidised  and eonsequenly is easily mined.  Doubtful Appeal from Kwang Hsu.  London, July 26.���Last Saturday  the Chinese minister handed the  foreign office a long telegram, purporting to come from emperor  Kwang Hsu, soliciting Great  Britain's good offices to bring about  peace, in terms similar to the appeals addressed to president McKiniey and president Loubet. Thus  far the government has not replied,  as it has felt that in the present  anomalous circumstances the origin  of the telegram is doubtful.  Molineux Appeals.  New York, July 20���George Gordon Battle, consul for Roland B.  Molineux, convicted of the murder  of Miss Kate J. Adams, appeared  before Recorder Goff today with  the papers in the case, ready to go  to court of appeals after receiving  the recorder's signature.  .  ' Took a Contract. Instead.. n  Ottawa, July 28. ���[Special to  The Tribune.]���W. J. Poupore, M.P.  for Pontiac, has resigned his seat in  parliament and has become associated with J. C. Malone in a contract  from the government for the Montreal harbor improvements.  National Photographers' Association.  Milwaukee, Wis., July 26.���E.  B. Coe of New York city was today  elected president of the National"  Photographers' Association of  America. Detroit was selected as  the place of the next annual meeting. The other officers elected  were, first vice president, D. D.  Spellman, of Detroit; secretary, J.  George Nussbaumer, of Buffalo.  CARDINAL   ON  EXPANSION  Want Strong Control.   St. Paul, Minn., July' 27.���Cardinal Gibbons, who has been visiting  in the northwest, spent today in  this city and was entertained at  luncheon at the residence of J. J.  Hill, president of the Great Northern railway. Asked for his views  on expansion the cardinal said:  "Of course we cannot abandon the  -islands we have acquired, at least  not until a sufficient powerful home  government has been established  in each of our new possessions."  ��� He thought the duty of America  was most emphatically that of  teaching the newly acquired possessions to govern themselves. A  question in regard to the allegations that the Catholic missionaries  were largely to* blame for the  persecution of foreigners in China  brought from the cardinal.an em-;  phatic denial.  There were, he said, about half a  million native Catholics in China.  While the Catholic prelates had  been granted some judicial authority by the emperor and mandarins,  this was because that by far the  greatest number of Christians in  China were Catholics, and it had  been found helpful to both the  Chinese and the government to give  the bishops and others some judicial  authority. The present troubles  could not fail, said cardinal Gibbons, to have a deteriorating effect  upon the work of christianizing  China.  Seventeen Days in a Coffin.  London,   July   26.���The    Hong  Kong correspondent of the Daily  BEGIN, TO^OUBTt-CHINESE  ���*���" - '   *  -  Washington Less Credulous.  Washington, July 26.���There  were no developments today to  warrant the assumption that there  was the slightest improvement in  the Chinese situation. ��� Indeed the  general tenor of such news as found  light was to add to the steady  growing doubt as to the good faith  of Chinese government as manifested in its acts. Admiral Kempff's  letter, given publicity by the navy  department today, made the direct  statement that the imperial authorities were- in sympathy with  the Boxers, though he added that  the government > was afterwards  paralyzed and incapable of controlling the situation.  This was the first official declaration to reach our government con-  tradietory of the Chinese representations that the imperial ���government had steadfastly and from the  first opposed the Boxer movement,  and our government is bound'to  accept the word of its own officer  until that is overcome by irrefutable evidence.  The exchanges that are in constant progress between the powers  are tending more and more to cast  suspicion upon the genuineness of  many communications that have  come from Pekin through Chinese  governmental sources.  If it should be.finally established  that there has been an attempt on  their part to practice a gigantic  fraud upon the world, the fact may  call for a change of attitude on tho  part of the United States government toward China. This would  not affect tlio military policy already under way, but merely the  technical relations between the two  governments, Avhich probably would  closely approximate a step of formal  war.  The navy department today contributed a brief news item in the  shape of a vindication by admiral  Remy of the United States marines  from the general charge of lootiug  at Tien-Tsin.  The admiral had a good deal more  than this to report to the navy department, but the officials did not  regard the rest of his report as  proper for publication just now.  General Miles and general Buffing-  ton were again in- consultation  separately with secretary Root  today, and the supposition is that  the Chinese campaign was under  consideration.  ALL RECEIVED THE APPEAL  Chinese Situation.  London, July 27.-4:30 a.m.���All  the powers appear to have received  an identical Chinese appeal for  mediation but, in the absence of  definite news regarding the  fate of the . ministers and  of - any reliable indications  of the real origin of the appeal,- it  seems that lord Salisbury, the premier, considered it was not even  necessary to publish the fact that  the appeal had been received, or to  do anything beyond formally, acknowledging it, with perhaps, an intimation that nothing could be,  done until news from Pekin had  arrived.5  But while there is no cessation of  the deluge of rumors, it is beginning  to be believed at Shang-Hai, Canton and other points that the yice-  roys are as completely in the dark  as to affairs in Pekin as the  Europeans themselves. Meanwhile  the doings of Li Hung Chang are  regarded with ever-increasing suspicion while the situation in the  southern provinces , daily grow  worse.       ,     * '..,-,���  ','�� ', .j,-,1:'. '--"  With the report that the allies  will begin to advance on Pekin in  a fortnight, and in view of admiral  Seymour's visit of inspection to the  Yang Tse Kiang. the feeling is that  no great time will elapse before  matters assume a more definite  shape.  The viceroy of Nankin still professes to be able, with the aid of the  other viceroys, to keep order, but  he declares that if Europe < sends  warships this will lead assuredly to  an anti-foreign outbreak. If it be  true that the Japanese' have  started a . campaign ��� from Shang-  Hai Kwan that also will precipitate  , matters, but the' report to that  effect lacks confirmation.  '��� St is-reported from Tien-Tsin that  -the"'Ghinese forces-are concentrating at the yilliage of Get Sang,1'10  miles north of Tien-Tsin where, it  is said, large quantities of rice are  stored.  The Russian and Japanese cavalry are keeping in close touch with-  the enemy.   The river is still low  and water transportation will be  difficult.  With reference to the control of  the railway, it is understood that  Mr. Kinder, the British engineer,  has arranged with the Chinese general for the protection of the line  beyond Pei Tiaug. Therefore Russian control could only apply to the  Tien-Tsin, Taku and Pei Tiaeg sections. If this arrangement is disturbed, it is understood that the  destruction of the line is inevitable.  from this the indignation among  the members of the department  over the killing of captain Day and  patrolman Lamb by the negro  Robert Charles.  Eefugees in Korea.  Yokohama, July 26.���According  to Seoul reports, the Korean government has protested against the  presence of Russian refugees at  Wiju, but, after, an audience, the  Russian representative agreed to  remove them to Port Arthur without delay.  ANOTHER TALE FROM PEKIN  Tuns Lu's Action.  Tokio", July 26���A message which  arrived from Shang-Hai yesterday  makes   the    following   assertion:  Yuan Shi Kai, governor of Shang  Tung, has received a  letter from  Pekin,.dated July 18,declaring thkt  a legation courier was' captured by.  the Chinese guards on July 13 and  that thereupon  general Yung Lu  petitioned the throne to employ the  courier as a messenger to communicate with the ministers.   This was  carried   out and a reply was received that the ministers were well  and   were unanimous.j in ^fav,oring  the restoration of peace..' '"'"'. '\ "  . An    official. ,of   the   Tsung , Li  Yamen afterwards .visited the legations and interviewed a minister,  audit was subsequently decided to"  petition the emperor to supply the  legations with   food and to send  them to Tien-Tsin. '   -.  ^ Yung Lu is .said to have great  difficulty in intervening between  the foreign soldiers guarding the  south Gioka bridge and -the Tongo  troops on the south side. Fighting  has now ceased/however.  7  vil  rdrawhH'fr  I  RACE WAR IN NEW ORLEANS  Militia Called Out.  NEW^ORLEANsTTulyHJe.���UTthe  rioting of last night aud today, one  negro was beaten to death, six were  so badly wounded that their lives  are despaired of and about a score  of people, white and , black, male  and female, have been more or less  seriously w wounded. Disorderly  acts, following the disturbances of  "last night, were committed  throughout the city today, and  resulted in the swearing in  by the, mayor of 500 special  policemen, and the ordering out of  500 of the state militia upon the  orders of governor Beard, who responded promptly to the appeal of  Mayor Capdeville for assistance iu  suppressing the existing lawlessness, and in (preventing the recoup-,  rence of the violence of last night.  Throughout the day attacks have  been made upon the black element,  and the negroes before nightfall  had been completely chased from  the streets. The effect of the disorders has been to -put a practical  stop to business in the wholesale  districts and the river front, and  this means a serious crippling of tho  trade of the port.  The business elements rallied in  force and hundreds of white men  responded to the appeal of the  mayor for assistance in preserving  order. The police have been practically, helpless throughout the disturbance. The force consisted of  300 men, including clerks and operators, and this is manifestly a force  inadequate to preserve peace in a  city of 310,000 people,  but  aside  Indian Budget Presented. .  London, July 26.���In.introducing  the Indian budget,in, "the. house of;  commons, todays th,e isecretary..for  India*, lord-George'.-Hamilton, com-^  mended-tharpatience,i resignation,  courage and- abstention-from .crjme^  witli'which 5'2,00~6",6do"6f" people in  the, stricken   area have faced the  famine.       The      latest      reports  from     India,   his   lordship   said,  were   anything   but satisfactory.  On the other hand, there were certain, compensating advantages   in  /the shape in   which the   revenue  year closed.   There was, he said, a  substantial credit balance of 2,800,-  000 pounds sterling, but the famine  expenditure and remission of taxation would turn this into a deficit  of ��826,000.   The government proposed   to   apply the unexpended  balance     of    ��3,000,000  " of   the  former      loan      towards      relief.  This would, he hoped, meet all demands.    If the resources of India  did not suffice to save the lives of  the famine stricken, then an appeal  would be made to the imperial exchequer.    In   the last two years,  lord   George Hamilton  said, ��13,-  000,000   had    been    expended   in  faminej-elief. = =-���  The Colombia Revolution.  Colon, July 26.���A special train  left here at seven o'clock yesterday  afternoon with reinforcements under general Serrano. This addition  to the government forces promises  hopeful results of the civil war. An  ambulance corps from the British  cruiser Leander is assisting to the  utmost in the care of the > wounded  in Tuesday's battle. The killed  and wounded number over 500. The  rebels' loss:*was terrific. Tho hospitals are full and some of the  wounded are being brought to  Colon. _  Crew Was Rescued.  London, July 26.���Edward Shea,  mate of the schooner Etta A. Stimson, which sailed from Bangor, Me.,  on June 28th, arrived at Southampton today, and reports that the  Stimson was wrecked in the gulf of  Mexico, on July 12th. All of the  crew of the schooner were picked  up by the French vessel Milo and  landed at Cherbourg. The Etta A  Stimson was a three masted  schooner of 268 tons and hailed  from Thomaston, ' Maine. She  was owned by John G. Hall & Co.  and commanded by captain Hogan.  Pilgrims at Borne.  Rome, July 20.���The American  pilgrims under the direction of  father E. Porcillo of Brooklyn were  received by the pope today. The  bishops of Brooklyn and Burlington  and students of the North American colleges were present. The  pope appeared to be in excellent  health.  SISTERS' SCHOOL BUILDING  Will Accommodate 200.

GREAT POWERS DON'T AGREE  Berlin Press Comment.  i -  Berlin, July 26.���A circumstance  which has made a bad impression  here is the refusal of the American  and British admirals to vote to give  Russia control over the railroad to  Tien-Tsin.    The Berliner Tageblatt  says that such refusal is a proof of  dissension among the powers and  can only encourage the Chinese.  ��The Kreuze Zeitung,. which repeats its pessimistic views concerning the harmonious action of the  powers, asserts that tho present  difficulties in the way of a united  advance upon Pekin are even  greater than the military difficulties.  The Vorwaerts contrasts president McKinley's answer to the  Chinese note with count von  Buelow's, praising president McKinley's as a masterpiece, and saying  that "the American president  plays upon Chinese sympathy without the slightest degree committing  himself. While he states certain  conditions clearly and energetically,  he avoids every threat and the  rude rattling of the sabre. McKiniey is really a man of fine parts."  Count von Buelow, before going  to Bremerhaven, had an interview,  with the Russian ambassador and  subsequently with the American.  On the following day, Tuesday, he  conferred with the ambassadors of  Austria-Hungary, France, Italy and  Great Britain. It is understood  that the Chinese situation was discussed,  %._mm<  .> i.*v  t^'*\V; i 'Mi^lji i-v^_��_\r__i_-:rff_\_t-_-_i_Vi_:  l"1* *I*'''*'~iri'Mirri��'gi?inr.-i.iiif.T,-.rnnlTn  j^^^:-^^^^"^-*^^V4|i!=iffla^*^>M$a^  1^4  ���Ji1  THE TRIBUNE: KELSON B.

'  ./.That little two-line paragraph in'  the .speech- from   the   throne,, in  yiwhich ��� the provincial government ���  j'c announces its intention of imposing  .���/ a tonnage tax upon the output of  ' coal and coke, will be .worth over  - $35,000 per line to the" provincial  1   treasury if the government's pre-  , sent programme is adhered to.   Of  ' this amount it is estimated that  something more than one third of  the'whole will be contributed* by  the coal mining companies in which  premier   Dunsmuir   is   interested!  The value of the coal' and coke output of the province for   the- past  year was $4,054,151, and it practically escaped taxation.    If, as is'  now suggested, a tax of five- cents'  per ton is imposed upon the coal  ^output, Jit _jpraiildl_re_sult_in^an_in-_  crease of $64,706 per annum in the  general revenue of   the   province.  This amount may then be fairly  said to represent the gain of the.  province in the   selection   of. Mr.  Dunsmuir as premier.    Some years  ago a demand was made for the imposition of the selfsame tax which  Mr. Dunsmuir has now apparently  suggested voluntarily, but its advocates were denounced as repudia-  tors, and' the statement was made  that   the imposition of any   such'  tax   would result   in   the   closing  down of the mines.   Now that the  proposal   to  tax the coal  output  comes from Mr. Dunsmuir himself,  the opportunity will doubtless be  seized upon.   At five cents.per ton,  the tax would amount to something  less than one and a half per cent.  Proportionally    this    is    a   much  heavier rate of taxation than is im  posed   upon   metalliferous mining  property, but when premier- Duns  muir suggests it, he may be credited  with knowing that it is not beyond  the ability of the coal miners to  pay. - .  risters   to    monopolize.   Canadian  j udgeships.   The genial old man of the Miner  has found a narrow-gauge preacher  at Fernie who does not agree with  mayor Houston upon the question  of Sunday observance. From his  utterances, Mr. Gordon of Fernie  evidently considers playing baseball on Sunday a more heinous sin  than that of bearing false witness  against his neighbor. There should  be a bond of sympathy botween Mr.  Gordon and the G. O. M. of the  Miner.         Wil-liam. Wallace Bruce Mc-  Innes is playing to the gallery .at  Victoria. The so-called labor bill  which he has introduced in the  legislature was framed more with a  view to directing attention to Mclnnes than for any advantage which  it might become to those in whose  interest it is advocated.  "Canada's growing time" is the  the text of the Grit editor, from the  Atlantic to the Pacific, and the only  thing which seems to be out of step  is the good' old Conservative party.  Yesterday's Mining Records.  At the mining recorder's oflice  yesterday, Thomas J. Duncan filed  a certificate stating that his claim  in the Eureka mineral claim as  against William H. Swerdfeger was  now null and void, W. Swerdfeger  filed a mortgage on his half interest  in the Eureka mineral claim on  Eagle creek to John P. Swerdfeger.

I remember some five years ago I  was up the Nile, away from big  towns and had a long talk with  various sheiks and omdehs of villages. I was the only westerner  present, and we all knew and  trusted each other in a way. I  asked if taxes were lighter. "Yes,"  was the answer. "Is water fairly  distributed ?"- "Yes." "Are the  soldiers paid properly?" "Yes."  "Can you get justice against a  Pasha?" "Yes." "And who did  all this?" I finally asked, expecting  to be told it was the English.  There was a silence; they are never  ���in a. hurry. Then an old sheik answered:   "Allah."  League Games.  First game���Montreal, 2; Worcester, 1. Second game���Montreal,  1; Worcester, 2.

One of the most remarkable cases  of voluntary seclusions from "the  world that ever have been recorded  is sheltered by an unpretentious  dwelling on the main street of the  quaint old town of Brookville,  " Indiana. For sixty-five years the  blinds that cover the windows of  ono room in the house have not  once been ��� opened. The" room is  occupied by .a woman who must  have reached the age of nearly four  score years by this time, although  nobody except her sister has seen  her since the time when, as a girl  . in,her teens, she shut herself apart  from the world in voluntary  seclusion.  Although Brookville is not a progressive town, its population has  changed several times since 1835.  There is hardly a person in the  village today who ever looked upon  the face of the solitary woman in  the darkened house. To most of  the inhabitants of the place her  very existence is only a tradition,  and her story, if ever known, has  been entirely forgotten.  Some romantic tragedy is undoubtedly locked behind the.doors of the  silent house, but what it is only the  lonely woman herself can tell, and  it is not likely that her lips ever  will be unsealed. Aged residents  of the place, whose memories run  back to the commencement of the  story, say that Phoebe Meeks���that  is the woman's name���was among  the most beautiful and gay of the  villiage girls. She was the daughter  of well-to-do parents, and seemed  to be surrounded  by  everything  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of-Credit on Skaguay,. U; S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  essential to her happiness.  Presently the girl fell in love with  Hadley Johnson, one of the young,  men of the town, with whom she  had grown up from, childhood.  The match was* approved by both,  families and' the wedding was,expected to take place in the summer  of 1836.   Some^weeks_Jbefore_the_date_set_  for the wedding the lover, in company with a number of other  couples from the town, attended a  picnic party in a near-by grove.  The day passed pleasantly, and as  evening approached a party of  the young folks, including Miss  Meeks and her lover, walked  homeward along the canal which  had just been constructed through  Brookville. Before entering the  town they sat down for a few moments on the bank of the canal. They  chatted gaily, together, and there,  was no intimation of disagreement  between them when Miss Meeks  suddenly rose to her feet, turned  her back on her friends and walked  rapidly towards her home. The  others called to her? but she" paid  no attention to them.  Presently young Johnston followed to the Meeks' home, believing  that his sweetheart must have  taken offence at something that he  had done unwittingly. He looked  upon it as an ordinary lovers' quarrel which could easily be explained  away. On arrival at the house be  found it dark,,and so he postponed  'his call until the following day.,  That summer evening by the  canal was the last time that Hadley  Johnson or any of her friends ever  looked upon the face, of Phoebe  Meeks. The lover called at the  house, but was refused admittance.  He wrote to her, and his letters  were returned unopened. To others  who called the young woman  remained invisible, and when questions regarding her were put to  other members of the family they  refused to discuss the subject.  At first the girl's action was re-  Capital Authorized  Capital Paid up  Rest  $2,500,000  $2,458,603  $1,700,000  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager.  E. Hay, Inspecter.

Not even, the closest friends of the family ever saw  her, and i��� was said. that she did  not leave her room, the blinds of  which were kept always closed. At  length young Johnson gave up his  attempts to see his affianced bride,  jmd_in_despaii\moved_furthei'_west._  The residents of the town ceased to  talk about the matter, except in an  occasional wondering way.  When the father and mother of  Miss Meeks died their funerals  were largely attended, but those  who had gone in hopes of seeing  the recluse were disappointed. She  listened to the funeral sermon  from the adjoining room, but did  not follow the bodies of her parents  to^he^grave.--;::;    ;."*���-' --^- ���;-���'-  Hadley Johnson became a prominent and one of the wealthy business men of Utah, and was one of  the presidential electors from that  state at its first national election.  A few years ago he visited Brookville and made a final" effort to see  the woman whom, he had loved, but  as before, she refused to see him.  He died last year in his western  home, never having married, and so  far as his friends know, never having learned the cause that had  taken his promised bride from him.  Aside from her sister, the only  companions Miss Meeks has are the  birds. Hundreds of them visit her  windows to' get the crumbs which  she places there for them, but it is  doubtful if even they have seen the  face of their benefactress.  A   QUICK   DIAGNOSIS.  One of the anecdotes related by  Weir Mitchell in the July installment of his Century serial, "Dr.  North and His Friends," might well  be a personal experience of the  author's. ���  I once went to Harrisburg and  had to return during the night. The  train was crowded.   At last, in the  (stifling, dimly-lighted smoking car,  I found a man asleep across two  seats.v I awakened him, and saying  I was sorry to disturb him, sat  down.,  After a little* he said : "Do you  know Dr. Owen North ?"  Bather astonished, I said. "Yes."  ���   "What kind of a man 'is he ?"  "Oh, a very good fellow j"  "He is like all then! high-up doctors, I guess. He gets- big fees. I  want to know. , ',',  "No," said I. "That is always  exaggerated.    Why do you ask?"  "Well.- I've had a lot-of doctors,  and I ain't no better,- and, now I  haven't much money left."  Upon this my friend confided to  me all liis physical woes in detail.  We parted before daybreak. It  was too dark in the car" for either  of us to see plainly the face of the  other.  About 10 o'clock the next day the  man entered my consulting-room.  As I should not have, known him,  except for a rather peculiar voice,  I, too, remained unidentified. I  could not resist so comic an opportunity. I said, looking at him, "Sit  down. You havc a pain in your  back."  "That's queer.    I have."  "And you are blind in - the left  eye, and your digestion is vei-y bad,"  and so I went on.  "At last he said : "I never saw a  doctor like you. It; scares a man,  'most.    Can you cure me?"  I said: "Yes," and wrote out my  directions. It was really, a simple  case.  When he produced a well-worn  wallet I declined to take a fee, and  said, "I owe you for the seat, and  the good sleep I. disturbed last  night/'   ������ ���:����� >\:. n'  "Thunder ! I see.

The particulars of the young officers death were given by lord  Roberts' in an official dispatch to  the British government of July 18,  and contain a magnificent tribute  to'the courage and gallantry of the  deceased. Lord Roberts describes  the action in question and mentions  with' regret the death of lieutenants  Borden and Burch, both of the  Canadian Mounted Rifles. His  tribute to the two .young officers is  contained in the following sentences:���"They were- killed while gallantly leading their men in a  counter-attack on the enemy's  flank at a critical juncture of their  assault on our position. Borden  was twice before, brought to my  notice in dispatches for gallant and  intrepid conduct."   STOBYETTES.  The Late Major Borden.  Major Borden, son of the Canadian minister of militia, news of  whose death was cabled July 17,  went to South Africa as a lieutenant in the Canadian Mounted Rifles,  the second Canadian contingent.  In one of Mr. Ewan's letters to the  Globe he tells of a gallant exploit-  performed by Major Borden on  May 5, when, in company with  lieutenant Turner and five troopers  he swam the Vet river and opened  fire on a Boer kraal.

The other bishop, being  a lover of the weed, contrived to  reprove his reverend brother's,  narrow-mindedness by putting' to  him the following question : "Now,  which do you think' is' most to be  condemne"Vthe-use-or-theabuse-of-  a thing ?" THe other promptly replied : "The abuse, of course!"  "Then," responded the genial bishop,  "you see that I use tobacco, while  you abuse' it!"

It was decided to hold a practice  match on Saturday at the ranges  for the purpose of selecting teams  to represent the east and west  wards in a match on August 4. Ten  men will constitute a side and an  entrance fee of a dollar will be  levied to form a sweepstake. The  butts at the ranges are, to be  doubled in width and a second window target erected. The secretary  was authorized to correspond with  captain Forin of the Rossland company with the object of arranging  for ten members of the association  to shoot against a similar team representing the Rossland on August  (5. An effort w,ill also be made to  secure a match with the Kaslo company at an early.date.  A communication was read from  the militia department stating, in  reply to a letter from the association, that under existing circumstances it would be impossible to  issue extra rifles, but adding that  under the new regulations now being drafted the matter might be  arranged.  The promoter's of the athletic association have about concluded  arrangements for suitable quarters  and the projected club is to be  formed as soon as practicable. Parties desiring to co-operate or secure  information are invited to apply ,to  Chief Thompson of the fire brigade  or to Charles,Hislop.:  Following, .Js^ the . eleven which  will represent Nelson in the cricket  match against Rossland tomorrow:  F.

As the  Nelson men have had but one practice, and the Rosslanders say they  have had none so far, the terms in  this respect are on an equal footing. As regards .former matches,  honors are about equally divided  between the two teams.   ��� .*   ���  "' Miscellaneous Mining News.

Thus it would seem that the  City of Paris is a mine in more ways  than one. - ���        ���  The smelter returns of-a carload  of ore from the -Arlington* mine'  'near Erie have ---just - been received.  The shipment consisted of nearly 23  tons of crude ore, and netted  $1,233.66. The ore is a sulphide  and carries the great majority of  its values in gold.  A Stern Revenge.
