NELSON:   SATURDAY  MpRSTUSTG  ___��?i______-_____==  AUGUST 4 1900  h  NOTHING AUTHENTIC KNOWN  ** Concerning the Chinese Situation.  " London, August 4.���According to  ���'* special dispatch from Shang-Hai,  dated August 3rd, tbe advancing  ��� column of the allies  was  reported  '��� yesterday to havo reached a point  35 miles beyond Tien-Tsin. Nothing  '���from any other point corroborates  this s tatemcn t. In fact the S fcan d ard  -"goes so far as to say that it fears  jPiihe real advance, apart from preliminary measures, has not beon  (--begun yet. .   ���  Tien-Tsin dispatches, dated July  ��� 30th,   tell of   an action which is  "termed a- "reconnaissance .between  the Japanese and Chinese," two  miles beyond the Hsiku arsenal, in  which the Japanese withdrew after  suffering 30 casualties.  The Tien-Tsin correspondent of  the Standard, under date of July  27th, declares that the 'Americans  and Germans have been ordered to  move forward, without waiting for  the British.  A Che-Foo special, dated August  1st, announces tho safety of all  Americans *in Pekin, and tho receipt of. a. letter from Dr. Chalt-  man, dated.Pekin, July 20, saying  that on the previous day sir Claude  MacDonald, the British minister,  had agreed to a truce provided the  Chinese came no closer,aud adding:  "We hope that this means relief,  but having defeated the Chinese,  we are fearfnl now of treachery.  All are exhausted with constant  watching, fighting and digging  trenches."  The Shang-Hai correspondent of  'the Daily News says the consuls  there regret the independent action taken by the American association and China association, on  the ground 'that it .is injudicious.  He says:   "The settlements being  ���' international, petty. ��� jealousies  must' disappear. The, China association is of little local influence."  '"/Presumably he refers, to the  American Asiatic Association., The  Hong Kong correspondent of the  Daily Express announces the'arrival from San Francisco-of Homer  -,Lea, for..s_ometinie secret*, agent' in,,  'tht/ United   States of th'e society  - for the reformation of the Chinese  Empire, with -��60,000, which will  jAesumably be utilized in connection with the revolutionary movement against the.empress dowager,  a ��� movement: quiescent since 1808  until within the last few weeks.  ��� Nearly   all    the. correspondents  : confirm the. reports of a wholesale  massacre of Christians outside  Pekin, a correspondent of the Daily  News, giving the number of killed  as between 10,000, and 15,000, all de-  . fenseless converts. Imperial troops,  so it is stated,- did the ghastly  work. According to the Shang-  Hai correspondent of the Times,  one of the members of the tsung li  'yamen mentioned by United States  consul Goodnow,as having been beheaded for pro-foreign tendencies,  was Hsu Ching Clieng, former minister to Russia.   Thecorrespondent^says^the^em^  press dowager ordered his, execution on the advice of Li. Ping Hen.  Li Hung Chang has been informed  from Pekin that prince Chin'gs' only  prominent supporters in his peace  policy are general Yung -Lu and  Wang Wensha, president of the  board of revenue whose influence is  small. " ���  BREEZE IN HOUSE OF LORDS  Bosebery Got Warm.  London. August 3. ��� Another  breeze blew up in the house of lords  1 today, as the outcome of the debate'  on Friday last, regarding the allegation that England was not invulnerable against an attempted  invasion. Lord ��� ��� (Rosebery today  somewhat testily "' ��� resented the  secretary of state "for war, the  marquis of Lansdowne, taking him  to task for suggesting that the  commander of, the forces, lord  Wolseley, ought to come to the  Jiouse and give his authority to the  government's military plans. Lord  Rosebery said he did not propose to  tie snubbed in the discharge of what  Sie considered a public duty.        .  . The marquis of Lansdowne, replying, said the war secretary was  responsible to parliament, and the'  oommander-in-chief was responsible to the war secretary.  Other peers having spoken, the  premier, lord Salisbury, arose and  ��aid he understood lord Rosebery's  contention was that the nation  would be much more satisfied if  lord Wolseley would come to the  house and express his approval of  lord Lansdowne's plans. It was  obvious that if lord Wolseley could  be called upon to do that he was  also entitled to express disapproval.  Lord Salisbury said he could not  see how that was possible. There  was much force in what lord Rosebery had said, but is was of an abstract kind. Tho subject was then  dropped.   L) HUNG CHANG IS TRICKY  Secretary Hay Becomes Tired.  Washington, August 3.���Another move was made today, in the  diplomatic situation by the return  of an evasive 'answer by Li Hung  Chang, to secretary Hay's prempt-  ory demand of August 1st. to be  put in communication with the  United States minister at"Pekin.  Li's answer is not final, and leaves  the matter open diplomatically.  Li's actions, as reported by consul-  general Goodnow, are unquestionably sinister, and will amount to a  final rejection of the American proposition if persisted in.  Mr. Goodnow's dispatch contains  some further information, bearing  on the question of responsibility  for Pekin conditions, in the, state-'  ment that the commander of the  Chinese troops, by inference answerable to the Chinese government,  ordered the-Pao Ting massacre. It  is learned here that Li Ping Hong,'  the commander referred to, is a  civil official and "well known to all  the Chinese officials abroad as one  of the most rabid anti-foreign,  leaders in China._ He is a close  friend of prince Tuan, and the  association of these two in Pekin  affairs'with power'enough behind  them"to cause the ignominous death-  of two high officials/ is'regarded'  here as abad sign.  General Chaffee's message. as to  the unexpected-resistance' offered  to the ..Japanese reconnoissan.ee is  regarded by military men herejfis  'forecasting a greater'��� degree "^of  opposition to the international advance than had been anticipated.  It appears that some misunderstanding exists as to a St. Petersburg dispatch printed here this  morning, saying that the -��� Chinese  , minister, there and his colleagues in  Europe had cabled the governor of  Shan Tung demanding free  communication between the Pekin  ��� ministers and their respective governments. This communication  was, in fact, a joint memorial  to the throne concurred -- in  by all the Chinese ministers  abroad, including Minister Wu in  Washington. It was forwarded by  minister Yong Lu at St. Petersburg  because the latter is the dean of  Chinese diplomatic service.' It was  transmitted (through the governor  of Shang Tung to be forwarded to  Pekin. This action is considered  -very-important,���as-indicating that-  the Chinese ministers abroad have  at last reached a unanimous conclusion that the situation is no  longer to be trifled with.  A dispatch from Shang-Hai states  that Li Hung Chang is preparing a  proclamation granting virtual amnesty to Boxers on condition that  the cease creating disturbances.  COMPANY HAS BEEN FORMED  To Buiid Nicaragua Canal.  New York, August 3.���John D.  Crimmins, of; the syndicate formed  to construct an inter-ocean canal  through Nicaragua, through the  Eyre-Cragin concession, the existence of which was proclaimed yesterday by president Zelaya, said  today that the company, which  had been organized under the laws  of New Jersey, would proceed to  carry but the letter of its contract  without delay. The capital needed  had been secured, and.if the estimates of cost made for the United  States government be correct, $130,-  000,000, the canal could be built by  his company for the same money,  and probably for less. The route  selected would be probably that"  hitherto called the Nicaragua.  Bower Will Pay -the Damage.  Pretoria, August 3'.���President  Kruger and commandant-general  Botha have issued a proclamation  promising to pay all damages to  Boer farms by the British providing the burghers remain with the  commandos.  CONVENTION'S WORK DONE  Friday's Proceedings.  The second annual convention of  the associated boards of trade of  Southern British Columbia concluded yesterday afternoon.  The delegates concluded to have  the next session of the association  in Greenwood, one week after the  legislature opens. The association  was invited to meet in Grand Forks,  Greenwood, Phoenix, r Fort Steele,  Kaslo and Kamloops, but the balloting was divided between Greenwood and Kaslo, with a creditable  majority in favor of the former  point.'w   "*  A delegation including E. Sprag-  gett, Grand Forks, E. F. Haning-  ton, Fort Steele, and J. Roderick  Robertson, Nelson, was authorized  to present the resolutions adopted  by the association to the provincial  ministers at Victoria.  Another deputation, consisting of  A. J. McMillan, Rossland, R. B.  Kerr, Phoenix, Duncan Ross, Grand  Forks, and J. R. Robertson,, Nelson,,  was drafted to meet the proposed  mining commission'should it be appointed by-the government.        --..  The Boundary Bailway Project.  The resolutions committee, which  took in hand the preparation of a  motion regarding the proposed  railroad line from' Carson on the  international line to Greenwood, reported with two resolutions, one  representing the views of ,the majority and the second that of the  minority. The foreman recited that  as great expense is caused by the  need of applying for a special  charter for individual railway companies, the convention fayored'the  passage of a general railway act on  the lines of the present provincial  tramway act, save that'there  should be no restriction as to building to the international boundary.'  The' minority resolution i,~was'  moved by. Messrs. Ross and Cum-  mings, and recommended the association, to* endorse'legislation by'  which any railway, on complying  with'proper conditions as, to expropriation vof^iland^-jetc^shall ''be-  permitted to build a ^railway from  any one point of the province to  any other.  The convention adopted the majority report of the committeel  Roads and Trails Recommendation.  At last year's meeting a resolution was passed recommending the  legislature to place the expenditure  on roads and trails under the charge  of a board of commissioners elected  by the people. A clause was added  to this yesterday with the additional suggestion that the local  board of commissioners should have  power to allow claim owners to perform work on roads and trails under their supervision, and that the  claim owners have the right to  record such work as assessments  upon their claims to an amount not  exceeding $200 for any one claim.  Redistribution Bill Demanded.   The matter of the representation  from the interior of the province in  the legislature was dealt with as  follows:  Resolved���That whereas in the  recent provincial election six Kootenay electoral districts polled more  votes than the whole of Vancouver  island with fourteen seats, and as  the Boundary district is practically  unrepresented, although at the recent election it polled; morevotes  than any other whole constituency  excepting Victoria, Vancouver,  Rossland proper, and Nelson,' and  many times the number polled by  some constituencies with two members; That such gross inequalities  are a scandal and an outrage. Be it  ' Resolved���That this association  petition the legislature to redistribute the constituencies, on an equitable .basis and further to pass a  special ;act which will at once give  the Boundary district at.least one  member.  London Office Approved.    :  The convention placed itself on;  jrecordas strongly in .favor bf prop-,  er representation for the province  in London, England, in a resolution  setting forth that as the gi-ant for  this purpose is inadequate, the convention suggests th at the government should immediately place the  the position of the agency in London On a more satisfactory basis by  appropriating $25,000 annually for  the purpose, arid urged that the  agent-general, or a member of bis  staff should have a general knowledge of the resources of the province  and be specially qualified: to give  information    with  regard   to  its  mines and mineral -resources.  Want Increased Lead Duties.  In regard tov,the lead smelting  trade, the following resolution was  carried : Moved by - E. S. Topping  and T. G. Procter, that this association recognize with approval the  action of the Dominion government  in granting the request of this  association made at its last annual  meeting for the^free re-admission  into Canada, of .lead of Canadian  origin smelted in Canada but refined abroad. And that this association reaffirm its decision of last  year that import, duties on manufactured lead''should be'increased  to a parity with^'the duties levied  upon other lines j of. manufactured  goods, and we askpartieularlyfthat,  the duties^np'on^ry^white lead-now  admitted at'5 per1 cent and litharge'  now admitted [free be increased to  a minimum rate of-20 per cent. We  believe that this change would have.  the effect^of providing a 'profitable  home market for/about 7000 tons of  lead used 'in^theSmanufacture of  lead. '-���;?<-  J. J. Campbell, {commercial manager of the Hall Mines, Limited,  was invited to speak on the matter.  He stated-that,^thej production of  silver^lead bullion was of very great  importance to the/province, as the  raw material used in smelting, iron  ore, lime rock, coal and coke, were  all productions p'^panada and their  cost largely ^represented ���, labor.  With this, point established Mr.  Campbell proceeded,! tt> tdetail the  features of rtarjff,--"etc.",'-which' had'  exercised an influence on the lead  smelting industry, concluding by  recommending;-the convention to  take action along the lines of the  resolution offered. '     7<t   ,^.       ,  Companies 'Act Amendments. '  �� The, Kaslo delegation'brought' in  the -matter of *'a necessity'' for(  changes in* the means of having  limited liability companies transformed from 7 assessable' to . nonassessable or-vice versa "without the  present: expensive and .indirect'  methods.. A resolution was adopted1  recommending jr ah amendment to  the- Companies^ Act Icovering!/tlie  point, such charige to be conditional  company; rand *>* the/ 'approval of.' a  supreme court judge, the amount  of stock necessary to sanction the  sale of the'assets of-the company  being necessary to make the change  valid.  -��� Railway Matters Dealt With.  J. M; Harper and H. G. Ashby  offered a resolution committing the  convention to urge the -freight officials of the C P. -R. to place the  districts of Vernon and Kamloops  on an equality with other districts  in getting their products to the  markets of the Kootenays. This  was carried.  Another railway proposition  came up and was dealt with in the  following terms: Resolved that the  association desires to support any  movement tending to the early  construction of ���> a railway from a  point on the Crow's Nest Pass rail-  way near Sand Creek - in East_Koo^_  tenay, following the valleys of the  Kootenay and Columbia rivers to a  point ac or near the town of Golden.  Improvement of Kettle River.  The convention carried a resolution recommending the government  to adjudicate on applications for  charters under the Rivers and  Streams Act without delay. The  point was raised in connection  with an applicationlfor . a charter  to clean out the north fork of the  Kettle river which has been hanging fire for a year. It was pointed  out that the lumber to be made  available by the opening of, this  channel would result in a considerable revenue from stumpage to the  government, and would also- give  rise to an important industry at  points where mills would be established on the river.  R. B. Kerr of Phamix moved that  the legislature take steps to compel its officials to be as prompt in  the discharge of their duties as are  clerks iri other lines of business,  citing as an instance of dilatoriness  a case in the iKamloops registry  office. The resolution was adopted.  7    Monring Session.  ,.  When the convention opened  yesterday morning at 10 o'clock  the delegates, were confronted by  an order sheet containing about 15  subjects. With the exception of  two or three topics these were disposed of before the final adjournment.  * Normal School Resolution.  The proposed normal school for  the interior of the-province came  (Continued on Page Four.)  CANADIAN BOAT THE VICTOR    !     '  The Minnesota Outclassed.  Montreal, August S.���The first  day's international race," for the  Seawanhaka cup, between - the  American challenger Minnesota, of  the White Bear club, St. Paul, and  the Canadian defender Red Coat,  came off on lake St. Louis today,  resulting in an easy victory for the  Canadian boat by six minutes and  twenty seconds. There was one  inch difference in the length of the  boats, the Red Coat measuring  twenty-five feet seven inches, and  the Minnesota twenty-five feet six  inches. The Minnesota had the  lighter crew, skipper Griggs and his  men tipping the beam at (331 pounds,  against 646 pounds for the Canadian crew. ' ���'   ���  Skipper Duggan having won the  toss, selected a triangular course  for today's race, the distance being  twelve miles, three   times  round.  When the signal for a start was  given at 1:30, there was a light  north-westerly to westerly breeze  blowing.     Red Coat got oyer, the  line first.   Both boats stood on the,  starboard tack, and it   was  soon  apparent that Red Coat was drawing away   from ' Minnesota. ���   Red'  .Coat->'worked      up,   to   r windward,   the  American   boat  makings , ^leeway,\ ' and  .   constantly,  luffing * to" avoid   the   puffs. * The  American "boat seemed to be   no  match for the defender.   The wind  continued to come down the lake in  puffs, aiid the Minnesota appeared  to'be unable to carry her sail.   The  Red Coat turned . the first buoy of  the first round at 1:48:48, Minnesota  following 42  seconds later.   Both  boats then hoisted reaching jibs;  They' reached very fast,-and the  'Minnesota commenced   closing up  the distance'.   As" they approached  "the second buoy it.was'a matterjjof  doubt whether the* Red Coat could  make very much1 mob"e*6n;the>wind^  ward work'than the Americtm* ooat  could" on/the reaches.   '^However;  "Red'Coat passed the \buoy/with/a  lead of 32 seconds.   Oh ' the' way  down before the wind Red Coat  *sailed"faster than ' before/and'Minnesota "' gradually dropped' behind.  Red Coat rounded the last- buoy of  the first round at 2:02:30, Minnesota  following 1 minute and 10 seconds  later. ��� : . "    ���  ��� On the. first" leg. of- the -second  round Red 'Coat began taking in  to the wind, while the Minnesota  sagged off to the leeward. Her  drift was,au'gmented by the carrying away of her peak, and for some  time the boat pounded along with  her mainsail flapping around in the  wind. At last she was luffed up,  and the peak taken up and relayed;  and filled up again, but she had lost  greatly, and rounded the first buoy  of the second round 3 minutes and  42 seconds behind Red Coat. It  was now evident that the Canadian  was" a certain winner. The American boat was very tender in the  hard puffs, and ,appeared_to_bury_  herself in the water, and have difficulty in comiug to the wind  quickly. On the reach after passing the buoy the American boat  did not appear to do quite as well  as before, and rounded the second  buoy of second round 4 minutes 20  seconds behind Red Coat. The  Canadian boat increased her lead to  5 minutes when she rounded the  last buoy on the second round at  2:30:50. On the first leg of the last  round Red Coat again showed  superior work to windward, and  passed the first buoy 5 minutes and  30 seconds ahead, and on the second  leg, which was .a reaching one, she  gained another minute and 12  seconds. The Minnesota, however,  after turning the second buoy  sailed down before the wind in fine  style, and lessened the distance between the boats by 22 seconds.  Red Coat crossed the finish line at  3.15.18, and Minnesota at 3.21.38.  Following is the elapsed time:  Red Coat, 1 hour, 45 minutes, 18  seconds ; Minnesota, 1 hour, 51 minutes, 38 seconds. Difference, 6 minutes, 20 seconds. /-After the race  skipper Griggs of Minnesota stated  that he had foolishly tried a new  sail, and that tbe center board  would have been much better set a  foot and a half back. However, he  intended to use the old sail tomorrow, and hoped for better luck,  but they had been fairly beaten.  ment, to stop the 'importation into  "the United-States from ..Canada, of  undesirable immigrants. He will go  to Boston early next week,' and  from there will proceed to his destination, accompanied' by commissioner-general of immigration Powderly. The frequent charges of  violation of the immigration laws  have led the, government to take  steps to have the subject investigated.

Victoria, August 3.���[Special to  The Tribune]���R. F. Green, of Kaslo,  today moved, a resolution, which  though hot definitely stating '��� so,  ^irges^the.governmenttobring-in-a-  bill for compulsory arbitration of  disputes which may arise between  capital and labor. He * said one of  his chief reasons for doing so was  to prevent a re-occurrance of  strikes, such as proved so disastrous  last year to Kootenay mining, and  especially in the Slocan country. It  was not a political issue, he argued,  and it was time something was  done, as it was the only method to  bring both parties to an agreement.  Finance minister Turner said he  had doubts of the efficiency of the  method proposed, and did not  think all labor unions agreed in  Mr. Green's method.  Ralph Smith, labor leader of Nanaimo, agreed that all unions did  not accept the compulsory, arbitration principle.  The matter was laid' over till  Monday. The rest of the day was  spent in committee work.  ���   Legislation Against the Chinese.

He  reached Ymir on Wednesday morning but could not get out,to the  Dundee owing   to   the   fires.    On  Thursday morning he succeeded in  reaching the mine to find that the  concentrator had gone up in flames  on the previous evening.

The  boilers were filled with water and  the flume turned into the building  until everything was soaked. When  the fire line, got so. close that the <  heat   could    not     be     withstood '  Carr   drew   his men back- to the i  mine with some difficulty.   For a I  time the water in the mill kept the |  fire out, but the fire crept behind j  and burnt out the flume, cutting off ' <  the water supply and leaving the j  buildings unprotected.   It   was   a;  total loss, with the possible excep-!  tion of the boilers.   The plant and J  building was insured for $20,000.  The fire then burnt up the tramway and took off the bunkhouse  and   magazine.     The contents of,  the latter were removed to the tun- \''  nel earlier in the day.   The __\zx_\ ,  succeeded in saving the boarding!  house, shaft and engine house and.'__  stables.  ,3  <     -v   ��� 1  >  Mlk____tm  ^-Ul-^k^''  *: 'il  l._\&  y3zy;y.yyiyjM THE TRIBOTE: NELSON & G &AJJTRDAY AUGUST 4 1900  "t*ii,F*nmr,r"-*'i,;'*'  Are you satisfied with the quality and fit and  price?

Cape Town, August 3.���W. P.  Schreiner, the late premier of Cape  Colony, speaking in the house of  assembly today, announced his intention to support au amendment  to the government's treason bill,  which, without disapproving martial law, declares its continuance  in certain districts contrary to the  rights of British subjects. He took  the ground that the ' amendment  would not hamper imperial action.  The occasion was seized by Mr.  Schreiner to make a long and eloquent explanation of hi.s attitude  throughout the war in South  Africa. "If I have been guilty," he  exclaimed, "regarding the insufficient colonial defences, the military  authorities have been ten times  more guilty. I delayed calling out  the volunteers until the invasion of  the colony compelled it. I was not  aware at that time of the weakness  of the imperial forces." He vigorously denied the existence of an  Afrikander-, conspiracy, declaring  that sympathy with the Boers did  not mean disloyalty,v provided true  allegiance was maintained. Mr.  Schreiner paid an enthusiastic  tribute to the humane methods' of  lord Roberts.  Ji^^'^^'^,.

The announcement that'the federal government intends to reduce  the.royalty upon the gold output of  'the .Yukon,', and : to establish an  ��� assay roffice at Dawson'City for the  purchase "of- all1 the' gold'produced  on 'the creeks, shows that the government- is prepared. tb' learn by,  experience. Under the new arrangement it is suggested that the royalty-'be three per cent.'-instead of ten  per cent, as at present, and that in  return for this -payment'"the government assay offices shall furnish;  free of cost, an-assay on the gold  dust   turned   in and -give -bank  drafts1 in exchange for it.-   The ex;  perience of the past two years has  shown, that the absence of an assay  office in which-. returning Shiners  could dispose of their ��� product to  advantage! has cost the'merchants  of the Coast the whole of the trade  ���of returning Yukoners. Por this  reason the announcement, of the  government's determination to  ���remedy the'defect should be hailed  with pleasure. '.

The cable connects at the  island of Fayal with the European  & Azores company's line from the  Azores to'Portugal, and is the first  to connect the Azores with- the  United States. It also opens direct  communication for the first time  between this country and Portugal.  ' Nicaragua Prosperous.

How many times over that  nice-round sum he has' accumulated  in his savings it is impossible to say.  To begin with, he has the handsome salary as "president of seven  thousand a year, together with a  coffee allowance, which is supposed  ���6r b/S * his "entertaining" money r of  . thrco hundred a year. Being of a  frugal turn of mind, Mr. Kruger  has.for many years past lived on  his coffee money, while out of his  presidential salary and "perquisites" he-is believed to have succeeded in saving about thirty thousand a year.  Over and above this Mr. Kruger  hasi many indirect sources of income. J t has been shown that he  has a very large interest in the  Netherlands Railway, while he is  also directly concerned iu. the. consumption of dynamite, as well as  several.' other flourishing monopolies.    Mr.   Kruger owns farms in  ���different parts of the Transvaal.  Some are productive, others are  not. For instance in the Rusten-  burg district many of the best to-'  bacco-growing farms are his, and  tho lessees pay him very handsome  . rents.  ������  -  His gold mining farms have also  brought him in a goodly amount;  a few he has sold to the hated Uitlander capitalists, others he retains  or hopes to retain.  Comparatively recently a farm  he had held for some years was  floated into a gold mining compauy, and although his name does  not appear in the list of shareholders he received almost the. whole of  the purchase price in cash. It is  said that many of the Transvaal  " president's safest investments have  .been made in Holland and Germany. He is likewise reported to  .be a heavy holder of German consols and French rentes. : ^  Personally Mr, Kruger is not a  . generous individual despite his  great wealth. ^At the time��� of the  dreadful dynamite explosion in  Johannesburg a few": years ;ago the  Uitlander firms subscribed a magnificent/total not far ; short of  eighty"thousand pounds to^alleviatei "the , distress of the families  whose breadwinners were killed.  All the victims were either, poor  Boers,; natives or Chinamen; literally not one Englishman suffered.  Mr. Kruger was asked for a. subscription and promised twenty-five  pounds. His name was put' down  on the:. subscription list .for that  sum, biitj despite continual dunning  on the part of the secretary, the  subscription was never forthcoming. ;���:' _____1_____2^'' ��� \':  The Railway's Patriotism.

Since the opening of the Suez  canal, St. Helena, that little island  in the Atlantic, 1140 miles from  Africa) and 1800 from America," lias  .had absolutely no luck at all. .Its  population and its trade have both  declined, 'the-former from* 6500 to  5000 ancl the latter from -S15,000to  ��io;ooo.' ;  As a port of call it used to flourish  amazingly in the days of the old  East India route, round by the Cape  of Good Hope, but nowadays, save  for an occasional tramp steamer  and the periodical mail boats, there  is" practically no development at all  connected with its shipping trade.  St.'Helena''is1 a great'place for  caves and hills. Both abound, particularly the latter. Geographically  speaking, the island is largely, if  not wholly, volcanic, and a lot of  extinct craters are apparent. Some  of the pinnacles have queer names,  such as Asee's Ears, Holdfast Tom,  Old Joan Point, Stone Top, etc.  The only inhabited place in  Jamestown, which has a population  of..about 2500. It lies in a deep  valley surrounded by very high  hills. It is nofc a particularly  healthy place. Ladder hill is where  "the governmentThouse is situated.  It is so called because of the almost  precipitous ladder-like wooden  stairs by which its acclivity of 600  feet has to be scaled.  Nearly four miles inland from  Jamestown is an isolated farm  house on an elevated plateau about  2000 feet above the sea. This is  Longwood, where Napoleon lived  from 1815 until he died there, in  1821. The house is a long low,  whitewashed, fairly trim building  with extensive outhouses, some  rather fine old trees and a good bit  of decent farm land.  DIPLOMAT'S  PLUCKY WIPE.  Remembering the pluck and determination which lady Macdonald  has frequently been called upon to  display^ none of her friends -were  surprised to hear that she had re-,  fused to leave Pekin, and declared;  that she would stand by her husband's side through thick and thin.  No person has forgotten;-the heroic  way in which she bore the first;  great sorrow of her life. When a  young girl she married - a; Mr. Robottson, who had some appointment  in the Indian civil service, and  went out to that unhealthy ���country to live. Several years later  Mr. Robertson- and her children  were seized��� with cholerayand'all  diedwi thin a few days Of each other.  It was generally believed she would  never marry again. However, she  happened to meet at a friend's sir  Claude MacDonald, nntil then considered a hardened bachelor, and  their engagement was announced  shortly   afterward.

Fine looking/ agreeable,   a brilliant conversationalist  and sympathetic, her ladyship has  been the leading spirit-of the English colony in the far east.     Every  European visitor was certain' of a  cordial   reception ? at thej British  legation,and lady;MacDonald prided  herself on being able'to1 give three,  .yearly    balls "smacking    of   true  western civilization.' ' Since ��� going  to China lady MacDonald has-not  found it entirely smooth sailing, but  has      had     to      resign     herself  with good-grace to'many-things.'  No matter how rough or inconvenient a journey her husband undertakes, she invariably insists *on accompanying him.' ' She, enjoys 'the  distinction-of having oeen the7'first  European-lady .to travel in a-train  from Tien-Tsin to'Pekin.    Half the  trip was done in a open truck.    It  was due to her initiative that the  deputation of "diplomatic ladies"-  was received by the Chinese empress. , It-seems that just before  going to the palace prince Henry of  Prussia  asked" lady MacDonald if  there was anything he could do for  her in the forbidden city. -Now,' her  ladyship has always been consumed  with curiosity to talk .with Tsou  Hsi, so she accordingly jumped-at  the opportunity of having her desire   realized.     The   dowager  empress' birthday  was- approaching,  and   the    ambassadress,   knowing  what-importance was attached to  the date, asked prince Henry to request hei  majesty's' permission to  receive the deputation of ladies who  wished   to   present an address to  her.   Prince Henry succeeded, and  this unique reception was accorded  to~th!Tlaliies7~By"her second  riage   lady   Macdonald    has  mar-  two  charming little daughters, Ivy and  Stella.

THE   KLONDIKE   YIELD.  ���'The' far-reaching changes now  being wrought in the development  of the Klondyke district mean that  within the very near future supplies  will be taken in during the winter  and the bulk of the mining done in  the summer. .  Colonel! A. C. Bowie, one ;of the  heaviest operators in the north thus  summarizes^ the outlook. 7  '  Cheaper supplies, better transportation facilities, as regards  reaching -the mines from Dawson,  lower wages and more capital are'  the things most needed, and all are  coming. With these, hundreds of  mines now idle can be worked a* ��  profit. Machinery, it is true, is revolutionizing the country, but  wages are still high; And supplies  are not as cheap as has been represented. Neither are ^materially  cheaper than they were last year.  Labor-at the mines receives from 80  cents to $1.50 per hour. The latter  figure, of course, is only paid skilled  miners.: 7.0.f7l��- ;.'��� .'.'7'.-'-'-77  But'' the -future of the Klondike  is most promising. The mines will  be long lived.' . They cannot be  worked out in five years and it  would not surprise me to see much  gold being taken Out of the district  ten years hence. It is hard to  figure on the life of the camp, but  the end is not in sight.  This year we were greatly handi  capped by lack of water. And at  that the output* is enormous! It  will be between;* $18,000,000 and  $20,000,000. There is a lot of  summer work going on. And the  time is coming when the bulk of the  mining will be/done between April  1st and September 15th. They will  take in their supplies in the winter  and jmine during the spring and  summer. Common laborers-are to  be hadat $3 per day now at White  Horse, "while but '850 miles farther  down- the-Yukom $8 and $10* are  paid. This condition of affairs -will  not last long. ���>  The White Pass>& Yukon has its  road in operation -to White Horse  and this will solve the Yukon transportation problem. It will, then  be' no task to reach Dawson. The  completion, of this road will bring  lively competition as regards the sale  of commodities. Vsr ,       -  The lack of good roads leading  from Dawson,.to the creeks has  greatly, retarded-the development  of .the, district.j7There is but one  road in all the camp. That extends  from Dawson to" Dominion, a distance of about thirty-five miles.  The highway is owned by the government. Why, there is not a good  road from Dawson to the Forks, a  point where Eldorado empties into  Bonanza.    ���. ��� ���"     'Jt  The cleanup of the Klondike will  not be completed until late in  September.        v   :��� '  With cheaper labor and improved  machinery many., of the claims in  the Klondike will be reworked-and  at a big' profit. They were ' first  worked with, a royalty and high-  priced labor. Their owners wanted  quick returns, so. did not by any  means get out all of the gold they  contained."  ��� LABOR   IS   SCARCE.  Sydney, N. S��� Aug! 2.���Labor is  having its innings in thi3 section of  the province.- There are none  searching for work-bnt the colliers  are kept busy searching for men.  The Cape Breton Coal Company is  unable to supply the demand made  upon jthem for coal. The pits are  working to their "fullest extent.  Night and day the_rush is_kept_on,_  and still the demand is not supplied.  The scarcity of labor is what hampers the production of coal. Men  are not so anxious to work in the  pit as they used to be. Other and  more congenial employment can be  procured, with good remuneration.  The construction of steel works  at Sydney has absorbed all the surplus labor that could be had, and  mine managers have been compelled  to take men from the pits in order  to carry on the work which was  necessary on the surface. Never  before was tbe Dominion Coal Company compelled to;' advertise, for  coal cutters until this year and even  then they cannot get all they want.  High wages are offered but still this  does not bring about the desired  relief. It is reported that for the  next year the dearth of labor will  continue. Extensive operations will  be going on at North Sydney and  this will tend to -continue the  scarcity in the supply of labor, and  thus reduce the output of coal.

An  excellent pitch with clay boxes has  been arranged on the Central  school grounds.  - The work at the electric" light  dam is progressing rapidly. The  ground sluicing has reduced tiie  level of the dam tohardpari, which  is as low as it is proposed to go.  On Monday the extra two feet of  cribbing will be commenced. This  will about double the former capacity of the reservoir.  ~ The matcElftT;lie~rifle ranges be^  tween the East and West wards  will commence at 1 o'clock this  afternoon, and the marksmen will  deposit a dollar each to form a  sweepstake. Members of the team  picked for Rossland who cannot  take in the trip are asked to notify  secretary Phillips, so that substitutes may be arranged for.  J. Fred Ritchie of Rossland was  in the city yesterday. He leaves  shortly for the Lardo to survey the  Black Bear, Kangaroo aud Mountain  Belle claims owned by a Detroit  syndicate and for which crown  grants are to be taken out.  Captain J. J. Chambers returned  last night from Ymir whither he  Avent with 600 feet of hose from the  Nelson firehall to assist in fighting  the bush fires. Fifty feet of the  hose was cut to pieces when the  handcar on which the party rode  was run clown by the Spokane  train. The locomotive was within  100 yards of the handcar when it  came round a curve, and there was  barely time to slow down sufficiently  to jump. Mr. Chambers was  hospitably treated by chief Morris  and the members of the Ymir  brigade.      Good for Coast Merchants.  The completion of the White  Pass & Yukon railway from Skagway to White Horse means much  to the trade of the Klondike and to  the coast cities, and especially to  Vancouver. Trains will hereafter  be run direct from Skagway to  White  Horse.     This will change I  the position and importance of  Bennett City, which hitherto has  been a point of rest or half-way  house, as ifc were, for. persons going  north. Hereafter ifc will be but a  way station. \ White Horse, in consequence of the "changed condition  of affairs, will become for a time a  very important point, as ifc will be  a distributing centre for the north,  with supply stores and large warehouses. Indeed, we are informed  that Bennett already realizes the  transformation whicli is bound to  take place in the near future, as  many of its business men are removing their establishments to  White Horse.
