NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING JULY 30 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  l    IMPORTANT NEWS TO COME  Washington Expectant.  ' Washington, July 29.���There is  a growing expectation at the state  department that news of the utmost importance may be forthcoming at any moment from Pekiu. lt  was even thought that something  might be received today but this  hope was doomed to disappointment. The few cablegrams that  were received reforred to minor  matters and did not touch at all  upon conditions in the Chineso  capital. It is believed that the  ' basis~for'the -expectation is; in 'the  knowledge on the part of the officials that certain machinery heretofore set in motion may result in  the opening up of communication  through some secret but reliable  channels.  lt is known that a second effort  " has been made by our own government to get another message from  Mr. Conger, and that nearly all of  the powers also have resorted to  private agencies iu their own interests with a like object. The fact  has just been developed that one  of the last actso of the late  colonel Liscum before his death at  Tien-Tsin was to undertake the  dispatch of a spy- to Pekin. General Dorward, the British commanding officer at Tien-Tsin, also sent  out two messengers, ,and it is believed that the Japanese did the  same. Up to date not one of the  messengers has returned to .Tien-  Tsin, nor has there been a single  word heard from any of them.  This   fact,    however,     has   not  caused the abandonment of hope  and this is true in particular of the  message exchanged from Mr. Conger.   Minister Wu is perhaps the  basis for this hope on our part, and  lie. maintains   an unshaken   confidence in his original * assertion that  the   news,   when   it   does^   come,  r will be to show that the legationers  are alive.   The messago reported to  t have come through missionary Wil-  ���t-^der at Che-Foo .is "regarded as most  promising.,   Minister Wu* had no,  - ~cabl-e^j:am!i hiinselfotbclay,' nor-had~  ; the state department- any ^directly  from China.  Nothing further has been heard  as to the date set for the beginning  of the movement from Tien-Tsin  toward Pekin and  it is  said  here  - ��� that this is a detail that must be  fixed by the military commanders  on the spot. A message came to  the    war    department   from   the-  - quartermaster on the Lennox, announcing the arrival of that ship,  together, with the Conamagh at  Kobe, Japan. They have aboard  the mounts for the sixth cavalry,  and although they will start for  Taku at once, not less than five  days will be consumed in this  stage of the voyage.  It is doubtful whether general  . Chafee would care to leave Taku  without horses for the Oth cavalry  particularly as according to all  -=-reports,-mounted-cavalry-is-needed  for successful operations in the flat  country lying between Tien-Tsin  and Taku. This" fact alone may  delay operations until late in the  present week, though at least a  portion of the international column  Knay start on the day fixed, namely,  I tomorrow.  protecting the allied forces  for flanking. After being under fire  for twelve hours they were withdrawn to the outer mud wall at  night. The ninth infantry had ten  killed, sixty wounded and one missing out of 420 engaged at this point.  Company A, posted at the railroad  station east of the Pei Ho, was exposed to a heavy shrapnel fire, losing two killed and seven wounded  in addition to the foregoing, On  the morning of the 14th the Japanese blew up the south gate, entering the> walled city. The allied  forces entered the town and assigned the south-east quarter to the  Americans for policing and protection. Guards were established in  the American quarter, which was  already on-fire.-'vThe-,*Briti8lu commander highly praised the American soldiers for the arduous work  and gallantry in a communication  to Meade, Tien-Tsin, July 26i _ *  (Signed)    Cooudge.^''  Assurances received here show  /that the Japanese government is  /doing all in its power to facilitate  the international movement, and  though the goodwill of tho Japanese was never suspected as far as  the United States is concerned the  knowledge is gratifying. Secretary  Long had a cable message today  from the commander of the Buffalo  at Hong Kong stating that he had  sailed from Taku. The Buffalo is  taking out much-needed relief men  for the navy crews and also has a  lot of stores aboard for the approaching campaign.    -  The war department has. received a cablegram from Lieutenant-  Colonel Coolidge, who assumed  command of the 9 th Infantry after  the death of Colonel Liscum, giving, an account pi: the part played  by that organization during the  fight at Tien-Tsin. The report is  as follows:  Che-Foo, to Corbin, Washington.  Six companies of the 9th Infantry,  under Liscum, with the marines  commanded by Meade, joined the  British forces under General Dorward, in connection with the French  and Japanese in an attack on the  south part of the walled city at  day break on the 13th. The ninth  Infantry on the right were~  least      of      the      south      gate  AMNESTY FIESTA A FIASCO  Philippine News.  Manila, July 29.-11:10 p.m.���  [Edited by the censor.]���The two  days fiesta in Manila, organized by  senor Paterno and his followers " to  commemorate- the amnesty offer  ended in a fiasco. The people were  passive, unenthusiastic' and not  even interested. Failing to observe any tangible effective results  from the amnesty, they say they  can see no reasons for celebrating.  Judge Taft and his colleagues of  the commission felt constrained to  attend the banquet as they had  been informed that the speeches  would favor independence, under  American protection, and they  could not passively lend their acquiescence by being, present. Senor  Patterno, forseeing the failure of  the banquet without the Americans,  frantically appealed to" them ' to  attend, promising that there should  be no speeches'.   -        -    *  The provost's -precautions were  extreme. The'guards^ were doubled  on .both days, and the, authorities  forced -Ja display .of Filipino flags  ^arid^'ofii-pictures -of ��� presrdent-Mc-  Kinley and Aguinaldo fraternally  . framed. The'' fiesta is generally  considered to have been premature  and unfortunate.  Duringthe last week's scouting  10 Americans were killed and 14  wounded. One hundred and eighty  Filipinos were killed and 60 taken  prisoners. Forty rifles were captured.         Dispute iu Chinatown.  San Francisco, Cal., July 29.���  A* fierce dispute has broken out  in Chinatown between Yo Yow,  the Chinese Consul general, and  Tong Chong, editor of the Chinese  world and of the Oriental and Occidental Press,one of the leaders of  the reform association which seeks  to raise an army and overthrow  the empress dowager and restore  the emperor " Kwang Hsu to the  throne.-^The - editor-devoted���three  paragraphs of his American paper  yesterday to a scorching of the  consul general who retaliates with  the explanation that the editor is  leading a revolutionary party which  has three thousand members in  Chinatown, all of whom he has  watched by spies and detectives.  ��� ��� - j  Driven From Fouriesburg.  London, July 20.���A dispatch  from Fouriesburg, dated July 27th,  shows that the capture of Fouriesburg was preceded by heavy fighting to force a passage of the passes,  which were stubbornly contested  for two days. General Hunter's  forces had the hardest work in  forcing Relief's Nek, his casualties  amounting to about 100. Upwards  of 6000 Boers, a very large number  of wagons, a large quantity of  stores and many cattle have now  been driven into the mountain  passes, where they are watched by  British troops. Their escape from  that point will be very difficult.  Cotton Weavers Strike.  Magog, Quebec, July'29.���Four  hundred employes of the Dominion  Cotton Company's print mill struck  today because the company changed  the pay day from Friday 0to Monday. The strikers were employed  principally as weavers. They got  possession of the head gates and  the entire mill, deprived of power,  was compelled to shut down. Once  out the men, in addition to a change  back to the old pay day, demanded  a ten per cent, increase in wages,  and say they.intend to stay out till  they get it.  CRISIS IN CHINESE AFFAIRS  Triads More Threatening.  London, July 30���4:15 a. m.���The  Shanghai-Hai correspondent of the  Daily Telegraph says: The general  situation is steadily becoming darker and a crisis is said to be fast approaching. It is rumored in Shang-  Hai that 10,000 Chinese troops have  been secretly moved into that  vicinity, and that the commander  of the Kiang Yu forts have been  ordered to fire on any further additions made to the number of foreign  ships ascending the river.    Rioting  has. already occurred. The mob  threatening death to foreigners.   "  With the arrival of the second  Japanese division, the allied forces  at Taku and Tien-Tsin will number  70,000. -  The river floods near Tien-Tsin  are diminishing.  It is reported that the Russians  from Charbin have arrived at a  point 150 miles north of Pekin  after severe fighting.  A special dispatch from Shang-  Hai, dated'yesterday, says'that an  English mission station north of  Ning Po has been destroyed and 12  missionaries have been murdered. ~  '" The' Canton correspondent of the  Daily Telegraph, in a dispatch dated  >Saturday, says: "The Triads have'  become numerous and threatening  in Hai Nan'. The Taotai and "the  local mandarins are terror stricken  and decline to protect foreigners.  All the missionaries except three  have left * with their wives and  families." .  HELD  HOSTAGE IN  PEKIN  Latest Imperial Edict.1 ,,-  ���" London, July 30���The Shang-Hai-  correspondent of the Daily Express,  telegraphing yesterday, says :  A new, imperial edict, promulgated this evening, urgently orders all.  viceroys and provincial governors  to endeavor to negotiate peace with,  the- powers,' whose ministers -are*  .held ashostages7periding the result  of- the overtures for the abandonment of hostilities against china.  The viceroys are also commanded  to guard their territories vigilantly  against attack, and to prevent, by  all means in' their power, the, advance of the foreign troops and particularly in the ���Yarig Tse Kiang  valley. The decree says the 'officials  'will answer with their lives for any  failure to execute these orders.  Commands are also given ' that  not a single foreigner shall be allowed to escape from -the interior,  where there are still fully 2000  Europeans connected with missionary work in isolated situations.  ��� When the governor of Shan Tung  communicated to the consuls the  imperial decree of July 24th he  omitted' these important passages  addressed to Li Hung Chang :  "It is admittedly inadvisable to  -kill���all- the-ministers'jrbut'- it- is"  equally unwise to send them to  Tien-Tsin. It will be much wiser  to keep the survivors at Pekin as  hostages. You are commanded to  hasten to Pekin, you are incurring  imperial displeasure by delay.  "You have been appointed viceroy of Chi Li, because, with your  military experience, you will successfully lead the imperial armies  against the foreigners in Chi Li,  which the present viceroy is unable to do, owing to his ignorance  of military affairs."        '"������-'���  Li Hung Chang replied to this  edict asking to be allowed to retire  on account of his age.  Sheng now admits thatjhe has had  telegrams since July 19 announcing  that every foreigner in Pao Ting Fu  was murdered, including forty  British, French, and American  missionaries, and announcing also  that two French Jesuits, and a  thousand converts have been massacred at Kwang Ping Fue, on the  borders of Shang Tung, and Chi Li.  A maj ority of the consuls favor  strong -measures against Sheng on  account of his duplicity.  Local . officials assert that the  Italian priests murdered in Ha Nan  were wrapped in cotton, which had  been soaked with kerosene, and  were slowly roasted to death. It  is believed that all the foreigners in  Chi Li have by this time been  massacred, and the wave of massacre is spreading towards Ning Po  and Hong Chow, from which point  30 British and American missionaries are endeavoring to escape in  boats down the river to Kiang Su.  Some of these anticipate a general  uprising along the Yang-tse-Kiang  about August 1st.  An astounding American intrigue  has been revealed to the consuls  here in the "shapeof a skilful attempt to getthe maritime customs  placed'.Tin tfie hands of an American missionary named Ferguson,  who, although he was an active  ally of Sheng in the latter's endeavors to hoodwink the world  with regard to events in Pekin, was  supported by the American officials  in his claim to the appointment of  inspector-general.

Senator Warner Miller of   New  York arrived in the city on Saturday accompanied by Clarence J.  McCuaig, the well known promoter  of   Montreal.   They  were   joined  here by   F.   H.   Menard,   mining  engineer of Denver, Colorado, and  Percy Dickinson of Sandon, manager for the Warner Miller Syndicate of which Senator Miller is the  head.   Today the party will go' to  Slocan where the syndicate is developing the Kilo, Smuggler and other  properties   near- Camp   Mansfield.  They   have 60   men at   work on  their properties and are spending  a good deal of money in development  work.   Manager Dickinson is reticent on   the question   of   details  and showings,   asserting   that  he  and his associates are not here to  get   advertisement,   but    to   put  money into    their   own   pockets.  No ore" is being shipped from the  properties nor are shipments likely  to be made   iu   the   near future.  Despite the large expenditure on  the claims the syndicate still   regards them as prospects only.   The  statement is  given out, however,  that   the >outlook   is   very satis-'  factory. ' ,    '   - *  - Last week the Warner Miller  syndicate purchased the, Neepawa  group, comprising four-well'inown  claims, front McGillivray and Shannon of Slocan city. The price  paid was large and the syndicate  considers it received full .value for  the outlay. Senator Miller is  making , his annual visit to the  scene, of the "syndicate's operations  and expects to remain in the Slocan for a month.  KING HUMBERT MURDERED  Assassin Nearly Lynched.  Monsea, Italy,: July 30.���King  Humbert has been assassinated.  Ho was shot here last eveniug by a  man named Augelo. Bressi, of Pra-  to, and died in a few minutes.;  The king had been attending a  distribution of i)rizes .in connection  with a gymnastic competition. He  had just entered with his aide de  camp, amid the cheers of the crowd,  when he was struck by three revolver shots fired in quick succession. One pierced the heart of  his majesty, who fell back and  expired iny a few minutes. The  assassin was immediately arrested  and was with some difficulty saved  from the fury of the people. He  gave his name as Angelo Bressi,  describing himself of Prato, in  Tuscany.  Rome, July 30, 4:20 a. m.���The  news of the terrible event did not  arrive here until after midnight,  signor Saracco, the premier, immediately summoned a meeting of the  cabinet and the ministers will start  ftt the earliest moment for Monsea.

London, July 30.���3:30 a.'m.���  Operations in South' Africa " have  again arrived at a sort of a stand:  still. Pretoria telegrams announce  that lord-;Roberts 'has- returned  there with his ; staff, apparently,  finding it useless to spend his; energies against a constantly retreating  foe. Commandant general Botha  with several thousand Boers, like  general Christian Dewet, has thus  eluded lord Roberts' grasp.,/ General Dela'rey is besieging general  Baden-Powell at Rustenberg, in  western ,Transvaal. The relief  force sent to general Baden-Powell's  assistance under colonel Hickman  proved too weak to be effective, and  was obliged to fall back on Pretoria.  The operations have been hampered* with bad' weather, thunder  storms and deluges of rain, accompanied by intense cold. Lieutenant  MacLaren and three Highlanders  have died of exposure, as well as  many horses.  A dispatch to the Daily Telegraph  from Lorenzo Marquez says that  president Kruger is now at Waters-  valooder. It adds that a big fight  is expected and that if the Boers  are beaten president Kruger will  trek through Swaziland to Delagoa  bay and take a steamer for Europe.  Yukon   Representation.  Ottawa, July 29���[Special to  The Tribune]���An order in council  has been passed bringing into force  on the 13th of August next the  statuto passed in 1898 providing  i'or the election of a representative  from natural born and naturalized  British subjects in the Yukon territory to the territorial council. At present all the members of the council  are appointed by the government.  News of Canadian Soldiers.  Ottawa, July 28.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Otter telegraphs  from 'Johannesburg today that  private D. H. Atkinson, 26th Middlesex Light Infantry, and private  West, 7th Fusileers, who have been  missing since the 15th .of May,  have returned and that private S.  Tester, 52nd regiment, Brown's  Light Infantry, has been invalided  to England.  One Union Calls it Off.  Vancouver, July 28.���The fishermen's union of New Westminster,  after a prolonged session this afternoon, declared off the Fraser river  salmon strike, but the membership  of that union is not nearly so large  as that of the union at Steveston.  The strike situation at Steveston  remains the same. The union fishermen  held two uneventful meet  Bremner has not yet succeeded in  effecting a settlement between the  cannery men and the strikers.  Meantime the militia will remain at  Steveston.   Will Eaid Bandits.  Phoenix, Arizona, July 9.���The  authorities in southern Arizona are  completing plans for a big raid on  parties of bandits rendezvoused in  that part of the territory. It is  known that a murderous band of  Mexicans' are hidden in Eagle  Creek county and a band  of equally desperate Americans  has its headquarters on, Black  river, while some parties are scattered through "the higher mountain  ranges. It is believed that various  crimes committed of late are generally traceable to these, bandits,  and determined efforts will' be  made to stop the outlawry.   "  WAR NO LONGER INTERESTS  Campaign Reviewed.  New York, July 29.���In reviewing the South African War1 situation, Isaac N. Ford says in his  London cable letter to this morning's Tribune: ,�� i  A remarkable feature of the war  in South Africa is'-the public indifference to the details. Military  experts no longer comment in'the  press upon the operations in the  field, war* maps have, disappeared  from1, the - flies, the special*, correspondents .-with *rthree'>"or four exceptions have retired from service  and the closing * incidents of the  campaign are passing almost without observation.^  It is not clear what is meant by  the khaki campaign in politics  when the story of 'the war with its  marches, skirmishes, battles and  records of heroic fortitudes, and  gallantry has ceased to interest a  bored,' listless public. Hunter's  campaign,"south of. Bethlehem, has  not been followed with intelligence,  by the veteians from military "clubs,  and Broadwood's hunt after Dewet  has 'been the' subject^ of -private  wagers," with' the heaviest betting  on'the fox. '���>',."'���" , * ��� ;  ' "PalT'Malb clubs^are not" London,  and the:; west? ^ehdrjisnot England,  -but-wben-aUowanee i8>madefor th%  listlessness and lack of earnestness  of the aimless, smart sets, it still  remains an anomaly the war. which  interested the classes and masses of  tbe entire nation ten months ago,  should now- be regarded as a dull  matter which interferes with the  ordinary pleasures ,of society, and  country house lifef| and with the  enjoyment of cricket matches and  horse racing.   -  -The reason for the apathy is the  public conviction that the prestige  of the British army has suffered  from the unexpected protraction of  the war, and that. little should be  said about the unequal contest between the imperial army of 230,000  men and the remnant of the Boer  commandoes, 10,000 strong.  Tbe situation has been partly  cleared by Roberts' advance towards _Middleburg   and. Hunter's  There  .i**.  ���M  'S0i  occupation of Fouriesburg.  may be fresh mishaps and reverses  for the British, but it is probable  that Botha will be forced back into  the Lydenburg district and cut off  from supplies at Kooraatipoort and  the guerrilla' warfare will gradually  be brought to an end among the  mountain fastness there, as it has  been suppressed at Fouriersburg.  Harrismith is the only town now  open to the Boers in the Free State,  and Dewet's, raid northward has  not only been ineffective, since the  sole result has been, the capture of  200 prisoners, but it has exposed  the remnant of his force among the  hills to defeat, with only one road  open for retreat and only a single  place of refuge.  Roberts is not moving as rapidly  as the jaded English public desires,  but he is suppressing the guerrilla  warfare in the only practical way.  The Boers are probably the best  guerrilla fighters in the world, for  they are natural hunters, at home  among the mountains, and the progresses of Roberts' campaign are  necessarily slow and laborious, with  the transport hitches blocking him  at every turn.

The ore is chalcopyrite in a  gangue of magnetic oxide of iron/  It differs in general appearance  from that met with - above in the  200-foot level where cross-cuts have  already proved the ore chute to be  about ninety feet in width and to  extend quite 350 feet, with indications that further cross-cutting will  show its length to be greater. The  proved occurrence of ore in quantity at the 300-foot level in this  mine is a matter for much gratification, for although it was not doubted that it would live down, it  had not previously been demonstrated that it did so.  ings today.

The best prdpbsition^comes'  .'- ;f rom ithe Sandon Paystreak. It sug-  , t gests, th��t having failed' to accom-  ' plish1*" the desired' result through  \:preachiug of the evils"of Chinese  .; and Japanese competition in British  ," Columbia, that a campaign fund be  r started, that   10,000 Chinese 'and  Ii'  I-  Ij - Japanese'be transported to th'e'city  Ij--' of Toronto^ and that the people of  I/--the east be allowed'to learn' the  li* .       *  " lesson from their* own -experience.  British Columbia demands Chinese*  arid Japanese exclusion because its *  people    liave   became   ^acquainted  with the dangers which Chinese and  "Japanese  "immigration   threatens.  ' ���" Ontario is luke-warm on' the' subject been use'the people of Ontario  are ighoi ant of such dangers, or indifferent, in   that the dangers at  present threaten British Columbia  and not Ontario.   It is safe' to say  that 10,000 Chinese and Japanese,  pursuing   the even tenor of their  way in the.city of Toronto, would  accomplish moro in six months in  the educi- tion of the people on the  Chinese und Japanese question than  10,000 lecturers in six years.   The  only   difficulty   is  in getting the  Chinese and Japanese to Toronto so  that thi-y could speak for themselves.    Here is a chance for the  government of the province. It has  been suggested that $100,000 spent  in  this ' manner   would   suffice to  educate Ontario. It may be regarded as a large   sum   to   spend for  Chinese and Japanese transportation, bub it would not be so considered   if''spent' among lawyers in  testing the constitutionality of pro- i  vincial statutes.    Then against the |  expenditure may be set the advantage which   would   accrue   to the  province through getting rid of the  educators.  The people who see danger' in  the' floo'ling.of. this province with  thousands of Japanese coolies,' will  not be lulled   into any sense of  CORDINGLY WAS COMMITTED  Sketch of the Evidence.  The preliminary hearing of the  case cf Regina vs. Cordingly, in  which E. C. Cordingly was accused  of arson in connection with the fire  in the Nelson Furniture Company's  premises, occupied the ��� attention of  police" magistrate Crease from 10  o'clock Saturday morning until 9  o'clock in the evening. A mass of  evidence was -taken, and upon its  conclusion the police' magistrate  considered that a sufficient case had  been made out to put the accused  upon his trial, and he was therefore committed.  S. S. Taylor, Q. C, conducted the  prosecution, and brought out a  great deal of 'circumstantial evidence. W. A. Galliher. who  appeared for the accused, did not  disclose' his line of defence but  contented himself with cross-examining some of the witnesses for the  prosecution, and today* will probably make application for bail before judge Forin.   .  Of the evidence taken at Saturday's hearing,, a great deal of it,  while it undoubtedly will - have a  bearing- upon the case at the trial,  was   not   very closely   connected-  with the fire in question.-  The.first  evidence of' general   interest was  that   of   Chief .Thompson   of the  fire department.' It was ��� in effect  that^after he'got to the fire he saw  Mr. Purdy there but did not see the  accused.' He got Mr. Purdy to unlock the front door of the burning,  premises.     Cordingly did not-arrive until the firemen were taking  up the hose.   When he did arrive  he went to work sweeping water  out* of ��� the   main ��� 'building. ' The  chief's opinion   was * that * the fire  started around*what'.,was a.f-workbench iri the storeroom at the rear  of the main building.*. When * the  ifiremen got into the', building -they  found chairs piled around it four or  five feet high-- so * that it ��� was impossible to get "at--the' workbench  without climbing over. the - chairs.  The fire was in-suck* a position that  thewind would'take it through the  entire building.     . His . impression  was that the alarm was turned in  about 12:35 "o'clock. ���    ���  '   J. W. Pittock- gave what may be  regarded   as   important   evidence.  He' said he ^was a* casual acquaintance of (Purdy's.���  On the morning,  of the fire-he went'into the undertaking-room^1   where    Purdy,  was  working.-   He'arrived, .about -10  minutes to 12 o'clock and left the  premises some' 20 minutes later in  company with Purdy.   Jn passing,  one of the windows'ion Kootenay  street   both   men   saw   Cordingly.  sitting at his desk in the building,  Pittock had lunch at Purdy's house  and a short time after they heard  the alarm1 of fire," when- both ran  back to the 'premises. Pittock- said  that he detected no smell of smoke  around the premises when he and  Purdy left for lunch. ��� While.- he;  was in the building before the fire  neither he nor Purdy were smoking  and he did not see any one'else-  there. .-.���.:;,:,.     <-^..-; ^.;;---:;.  James Temple, warehouseman for  the Kootenay Supply Company,  testified that he was in the^Nelspn  Furniture Company's storel at;12:10  o'clock.- He found 'Cordingly <��� at  the desk. He was1 sure of the  time because when he lef t the Kootenay Supply the mill whistle was  blowing. His business at the furniture store was in connection with  an account and also to look at  some linoleum. I He said he was  inside the building about a-quarter  of an hour which'would make it  about 12:25 o'clock when he left.  He said that, Cordingly's manner  was the same as usual though he  seemed hurried.  William G. Lillie gave evidence  that after the alarm-sounded he  met Cordingly about 50 yards from  his residence going home. He asked Cordingly where the fire was  and Cordingly replied ithat he did  not know and continued on his way  home. ���,'������'.������.������������ >;--:.-- ':'���:���������   :-  John Bunyon testified that he  saw Cordingly pass the corner of  Baker and Ward streets about 12:25  o'clock walking in a direction-away  from the Nelson Furniture store  and in the direction of his residence.  Ten minutes later he heard the fire  alarm.  C. D. J. Clmstie and Thomas  Howell, two insurance agents, were  called to testify as to the insurance  upon the Nelson Furniture Company's stock. Their evidence was  very general. No written documents being produced Mr. Galliher  objected to specific details and was  sustained by the court. It was  shown, however, that insurance  upon the stock was carried by the,  companies represented by these  agents.  Chief of police Jarvis testified  that he arrived at the fire about  the same time as the members of  the fire brigade and remained there  until the fire was put out. He did  not see Cordingly at the fire and  went to his residence between 1:15  o'clock and 1:20 o'clock. Cordingly  came to the door. The chief said  he told him there had been a fire  at his store. Cordiugly's reply was  to the effect that lie did not think  so as he had just left the store a  short time before. The chief's  view of the matter was that the  news of the fire did not effect Cordingly. Mrs. Cordingly asked her  husband why he did not go back to  the fire and he replied that he did  not go to every fire. The chief  then left and Cordingly went back  into the house, but he was afterwards overtaken by Coidingly at  the corner of Baker and Ward  streets. After, his arrival at the  premises Cordingly seemed to take  matters in a cool way. Subsequently a warrant was issued for  Cordingly's arrest when the chief  found he had gone to Five-mile  Point on business. Upon his return  in the evening he was arrested at  his residence.  Louis K. Larsen, a second-hand  dealer that he made a trip to Five-  mile point with Cordiugly after the  fire.    His business was to look over  some   furniture   at Perry's   hotel  which Cordingly was going to ,take  over in satisfaction of a debt.   The  only bearing his evidence had on  the case was,that he mentioned the  matter of the fire to Cordingly and  remarked that the fire was a pretty>  hard shot on him (Cordingly).   The  only reply, he" received was "Yes."  " A.   W.  Purdy,' the   partner   of  Cordingly in the Nelson Furniture  Company I gave evidence." - He said  the undertaking-room was used as  a workshop.    He   said theie   had  been' no's fire of* any kind burning  that' morning.    He also -said-'-that  for some time past there had been  no work done upon the bench described in the" evidence   of   chief  Thompson.' ,He knew   there were  chairs'piled about and also a quantity of   carpet paper, - moss, wool  and hair.   He. had - been ��� smoking,  during the morning, but had finished  by 8:30 o'clock.    He thought if a  fire had been smouldering Cordingly  could have noticed it from his desk.  Mr. Purdy corroborated the evidence of Mr. Pittock', except that in  passing the Kootenay window he  said that he saw Cordingly leave  his chairl *   After leaving the prem-~  ises for lunch he did not see Cord-'  ingly again until after the fire was  out.'    Mr. Purdy testified to'differ-  ences   between   himself   and   Mr.  Cordingly and said that the partnership was .being wound up with  the aid   of   the   courts.   He   and'-  Cordingly had not been on speaking terms for some time.     There  ,was a great deal of other evidence  but it had more importance for the  lawyersin the case than any one  ^elserf   'f   ^���^-       '      ~   ��� ~i~  . <���_ g-g &i_i-��i-4:<_-'^_t'_t--T,'___-z_\-&'^'^-__\'&&  AND AMATEUR  PHOTOGRAPHERS'  SUPPLIES OF  ALL KINDS.

Steevens for the  London Daily Mail which were lost  - in transmission, has been' found.   It  is as follows:"   '     *"'���"  We woke on Saturday morning to the  accustomed^ couple   of  - bangs���Long .Tom   and the, four-  ", point-seven.     Then silence. -  We  dressed and breakfasted with* disquietude.." ">,What;/ devilish trick-  were they up follow?"  Five minutes later everybody  . within a mile radius of the town  ' knew that sir, George White had  sent out���more white flag���to ask  general Joubert whether the sick  and wounded, women, children, and  non-combatants -might leave the  town. Everybody assumed, Heaven  alone knows why,���it' speaks better  for the reputation' of Joubert's  magnanimity than for that of his  common sense���that the reply  would be "yes." Almost everybody  decided to go. v  They debated awhile whether it  would be railway or road, then-  decided that it was a case of - driving to Maritzburg.  Those .who had carts were popular men. Those who had many  horses sold all but two, those who  had two looked about for a pack-  _saddle,^those_who_had_one_made.a_  selection of their goods, and greased their socks. Those who had  none sought friends who had.  Within five minutes I became the  legatee of five months' stores.  The .whole morning buzzed with  preparation.      Just   before   lunch  - time it became known that the answer had arrived. Nobody took'  much ' interest in that; everybody  was still sure that it was " Yes."  About half way through lnnch the  text of the answer floated in on the  summer laden air.  It was ������No." Nobody could  possibly be allowed to go south.  The sick and wounded, women and  child ren, and nOn-combatants might  /remove to a point four miles out  'within twenty-four hours.' They  were to go���you have guessed it  ���-under the white flag, and they  were to have no communication  with the combatant part of the  garrison. Also no man who went  out was to fight again during the  siege. And a meeting was to be  held before the town hall at four to  consider the question. ���  The meeting was duly held. Outside the town hall���it looks like a  minature study of half the town  halls in England���today a drench  of iodoform proclaimed it a hospital���gathered the civil population of Ladysmith. The mayor  and town council on the steps, a  hotelkeeper, about six parsons, 60  unshaven men in soft hats, and, a  lady and four, men on horseback  behind.  Mr. mayor���his bare head relieving his mutton-chop whiskers���  opened the meeting and requested  the town clerk to read the corres-  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  * NELSON  "God Save the Queen"  and  forth .to,* hide their women  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  pondence. The honorable gentleman inaudibly did so, and then, at  the request of three-quarters of.the'  civil population, inaudibly did so"  again.  Then the discussion began.  Round-eyed -Tommy watched it  from the skirts of the crowd. So  did ox-eyed Ram Bux, the Indian  doolie bearer, not knowing' what it  all meant, not caring, ignorant and  indifferent how the war was going,  content to carry( the wounded out  of "action,"' and(to leave'his own  fate and everything else to God.  But that is not the point of view'  of   Ladysmith.    'Voices began to  ring? and "Hear, hear," and "No,'  no" to growl.; "\ The' mayor ,-was for  taking,a rifle arid joining .the firing  Jine.'   Some,.were for this, others  -for,that..' In'the end i*ose the arch-'  deacon, and said' that for his part  he; would--rather j die   under   the'  Union   Jack  than"1 live under, the  white flag.  So said they all.  Bareheaded -under the sun, they  sang  "~  went  folk and ,children', in holes in the  ground.  ; We had, they said, till noon- on  Sunday.- But1 by before that���when-  I went out before breakfast���there  was a new 'Ladysmith... The old  one was shut up, deserted, and  empty shelL'of match-board and  corrugated iron. The teeming centers of population were void and  soundless.  The postoffice, where three days  ago you steamed and stewed 10  minutes in human juice before you  could buy a penny stamp, was  closed till further notice and portu-  _cullised_=withj_hayjbales. Of _the.  hospital remained only the bare  walls, a few skeletons of beds and  the faithful smell of iodoform. The  local Whiteley had his rolls of dress  fabrics on the pavement and had  substituted himself for them in his  cellar." The Royal hotel held out  gallantly till the last moment; the  waiters disappeared by day, but  but the manager and barman  'cooked the dinner, and the natives  crept in'to serve it by night.  But by> Monday morning even  the Royal, hotel was derelict. The  manager and barman and one  faithful waiter had entrenched  themselves behind bags of flour  in a clef t of the hill and with a case  of whisky and a good conscience  they were sorting the accounts,;  which we mean to..pay when .the  bombardment is over.  Briefly, Ladysmith lived under  ground! You turned a corner, and  in a natural easy chair among  rocks sat a lady under a sunshade  reading a yellow-back novel. r Presently a nurse amusing; a bunch of  children. But the fashionable  quarter now was r the river bed.  Lad ysmith was the felicity that  the Klip river flows twice around:  it in the shape of an S, and the  : Klip river banks arehigh and steep,1  and of a light, friable soil. They  have branching clef ts, wherein you  might find whole families' dozing,  under blankets propped up with  sticks, comforted by the presence  of many stalwart Natal volunteers.  As you rode . along - the bank  you heard familiar voices  and saw familiar faces grinning up from holes in mid-precipice,  where they dwelt with flasks  and  Imperial Bank of Ganada  HEAD  OFFICE.

As  for the Imperial Light Horse,'they  drove nine tunnels into the river  bank, and made the place look like  a deep lead mine in England: You  could not- go ..ten yards without  seeing a1 freshly dug hole,' freshly  abandoned for another yet more  hermetical. _ , -    ���.     .'j  ,.  We were all troglodytes and lake  dwellers and- cave' men 'now���rock  rabbits and conies.and lizards.- < As  for me; I intended *when the real  bombardment began to lie in . the  river, with the^tip of my.-'nose and  a pair of Zeiss glasses, above the  water.  But in the.meantime the amusing  thing'was that the bombardment  did not begin. I woke'at three on  Monday morning to the uproar of a  squadron of Light Horse getting  under arms. "O,- ye merciful  powers," I said, "has it -been already?" and then I * went to sleep  again. I, woke up with ajump at  five���and the firmament was still  uncracked. Tentatively. I crept  out of bed, stealthily I shaved, and  felt unusually- naked' in my tub.  At eight the calm was Sabbatical.  I laid in breakfast to last the whole  day.  At nine I went forth lo view ,the  world. It was difficult to find it,  but such as I uprooted .were unscathed. At ten an eremite, who  lived in the face of a cliff, came in  demanding ,gin and'water.  Now, as I write, it is after lunch,  and -1_more than   half   think it is.  worth while going out to try and  buy meat and bread for dinner.  But where on earth is the bombard-  merit? ��� This absence of the bombardment is'the" most nerve shattering thing in the world.  MYSTERIES OT PUBLIC LIFE.  Cassels Saturday Journal.  Some day, perhaps, we shall have  a Book of Mystery, dealing with  politics and public life, and it would  be truly a surprising volume.    Mr.  Justin    McCarthy, in   one of   his  recent works,   suggests   that   the  Duke of Wellington did not know  the   day   on   which the battle   of  Waterloo was fought.   At any rate i  the  authorirepreserits the duke as.  referring to the date of the battle;  as June 15th, whereasall the world;  knows  ..that   it   was'_June���.>>���!8th.  Whether Mr.-McCarthy is; right or,  wrong, there is. nothing inherently;  impossible in the suggestion. There^  are a hundred and one little oddities of public :life todayquite as  remarkable' as   that ,the hero of.  Waterloo-did not know when the,  battle was fought,    k : ;  Nineout of ten people, for example, will refuse to believe that  lord Salisbury never saw Mr. Parnell, yet we have no less authority  than the prime minister himself  that he had never seen the Irish  leader in 1891. Mr. Parnell died a  few months after lord Salisbury  made this statement in a public  speech, and it is in the highest degree unlikely that the two met  afterwards. Yet Mr. Parnell was a  conspicuous member of the house  of commons for 16 years.  The   fact   that   lord'Salisbury  .never saw- Mr. Parnell is hardly  .inore surprising-* than that Mr.  Gladstone never spoke to lord Melbourne. The two men were in parliamentary * .life together , over  .twelve yearsj but by some curious  -chance of,, fate they .never came  within.speaking distance. , Neither  did-Mr. Gladstone ever see Bismarck, though the two statesmen  loomed'so largely, on the same page  of history. <* Prince Bismarck knew  so little of Mr., Gladstone that, he  usually spoke of,him as "Professor."  ' Lord Salisbury ���was< <iu the house  of > commons for some years as lord  .-Robert Cecil before 1868,-,but he has  not, in the-parliamentary, recollection-'of the.oldest,, member, ever  fbeen observed in the peers' gallery.  The prime minister has no.loye for  listening-1 to ��� debates in, the, com-  , mons, though he. has once or. twice  been seen on the floor-of .the house.  How.little he has'entered into the  life of the lower^ house-is shown by,  the fact that he has never .spoken  to Mr. John. Morley.        - r  It is.interesting to recall the fact  that Nelson .and Wellington only  met' once, and - then. as strangers.  Neither knew the other. ? Thejr had  iriet casually, in- lord Bathurst's-  waiting-roomand entered into conversation. , Though Avithin the next  few years these men were to stamp  their names on the history of the  world, they, separated - without a  sign of recognition. It is recorded,  however, that - each of, them was  impressed - with the ; fact that the  other was "no common man."  Stranger still, perhaps, is the fact  that-the two great figures in. the  battle of Waterloo. never saw each  other. Though for" six years the  duke of. Wellington, led the  embattled hosts of England against  .Napoleon, he never\ met his great  antagonist. The empress of India  has never been in tndia; there is  indeed, hardly a square mile of  British territory outside of the  British Kingdom on which her  majesty has set foot. And everybody knows that the queen's colonial -.secretary has" never seen a  colony, and that the first lord of  _the_;admiralty__has_never^had-an  hour's freedom from sickness at sea.  Until he saw sir (then Mr.) Henry  Irving in "Hamlet," lord Randolph  Churchill had neither seen nor  read a Shakespeare ' play. "What  occurs in the next act?" he asked  Mr. Irving in the dressing room,  and on being told of the sad misfortunes of Ophelia the famous  statesman muttered, "Dear me,  this is very sad." He had not  read a single word of Shakespeare,  and, soon afterwards called on the  great actor and thanked him for  having introduced him to a new  world.  Nor is it only in politics that  fame's favorites are often' so near  together, yet ��� so far away; John  Hare, the actor, once sat at dinner  next to a well:khown bishop, who  asked him if he had ever been to a  theatre; and when the late Barney  Barnato was at the height of his  fame; a London magistrate innocently inquired who Mr. Barnato  was.   He had never heard of him.  Seawanhaka- Cup Defender.  Montreal, July 29.���The final  race to decide the selection of a  .defender for the Seawanhaka cup  was sailed over the outside course  on lake St. Louis yesterday afternoon and was won by commodore  Melson Sleek's yacht Red Coat.  The good showing* yesterday by  the Red Coat made it an easy  matter for the committee to decide upon the selection of her as the  defender of the cup. The wind  was steady and the sea choppy.  Altogether the race was a good  test of the all-round,qualities of  the yacht.  George Herrick Duggan ���*  and his crew sailed the Red, Coat  and have > already taken her in  charge to get her ready iov- the international race.  Kaiser's Speech Misreported.  Berlin, July 29.���The Berlin  government organs declare that  the kaiser's speech has been mis.  interpreted. He did not say that  no pardon would be given to' the  Chinese, or that the German troops  would be .ordered not to make prisoners. The kaiser, these papers  declare, alluded to the barbarity  of'the Chinese, who neither pardon  nor make prisoners. Some progressive papers frankly read the  kaiser's speech as advising the German troops neither to give nor to-  take quarter and to make no prisoners.'    l - -  Having Purchased  the Business  Of Fred J.

Lee of Cleveland, Ohio,  first vico grand master ��� of the  Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen,  spent yesterday in the city on an  official visit to Kootenay Lodge  ,No. 558. It was his first" visit to  Nelson, and he was delighted with  the prosperity of the city and the  local brotherhood. A special meeting was held last night, at which"  Mr. Lee was present aud addressed  the members.  Hon. R. Emerson, premier of New  Brunswick, and Hon. A. S. White,  minister of public works for the  same province, are registered at the  Hotel Phair. They are making a  tour of the province, and have  spent a fortnight at the Coast.  After a couple of days at Nelson  they will run over to Rossland and  possibly take in the Boundary  country. Neither gentleman has  financial interests in the province,  but are none the less eager to get  reliable information on the development of the west.  Young Maslonka, who,-though not  yet 10 years of age, is probably  the worst boy in the city, was arrested last night and lodged in the  eity jail for breaking' into a shack  and stealing a watch. He will  probably be sent to a reform school.,  . A special meeting of the Nelson  Board of Trade will be-held this  evening in the /board of trade  rooms at 8 o'clock.  S. "W. Barbury fell from a building on Saturday and broke a rib,  besides sustaining painful injuries  to his back. He was taken to the  general'hospital.  ;  C. Sweeney of Vancouver, inspector of the Bank of' Montreal, is in  in the city. ^_ - ,        '   ���  Took French Leave.   ,  ��� John Donovan, a Phoenix man  imprisoned at the provincial jail,  took French leave of the institution  on Saturday afternoon about 2:80  o'clock. ,He got clean away and at  the time of writing had not" been  captured, although" the police at all  outside points had been warned of  the escape and requested, to look  for the prisoner. Donovan was sent  to the jail some two and a half  months "ago on" a six mouths' sentence for being drunk and disorderly at Phoenix. He was a trusty and  had been employed about captain  Pitzstubbs' quarters. He was one  of the willing, workers about the  place and as the officials thought he  could not be driven away from the  institution Donovan- was, afforded  more privileges than most. On  Saturday he was working in the  warden's room, where the duty  guard could not oversee ��� his movements. . The trusty took an opportune moment to walk out, and when  his absence was discovered he had  disappeared. It is thought he will'  be retaken shortly.  ���-������-���Improving-the-Telephone.-������  H. W. Kent of Vancouver, general manager of the Vernon and  Nelson Telephone Company, was in  the city yesterday in connection  with an important program for the  improvement and extension of the  system in Nelson. The telephone  exchange now has ample office  room and advantage of this is to be  taken by equipping the local exchange with a , 300-instrument  switchboard and a 600-cross-con-  necting rack, which admits of the  exchange being enlarged whenever  necessity demunds, A staff of men  will start today to make the necessary changes to the building. More  important still is that a gang of  linemen will be sent here immediately to tighten up the wires, replace the cables which have suffered  severely of late through crossings  with the trolley wires, and to wire  the residential districts, from which  a number of applications for connections have been received. The  program involves a considerable expenditure, and Mr. Kent states  that the service will be very materially improved thereby.  Massaeres in J?ao Ting Fu.  Tokio, July 28.���It is reported  from Shang-Hai that the Boxers  attacked the missionaries and native Christians at Pao Ting Fu on  July 8th. A foreign physician and  two converts were massacred. The  Chinese general Li Ho Keh is now  marching on Pekin. He has" ordered his troops to exterminate all  Christians. Already one French  priest and from 2000 to 3000 natives have been slaughtered.  NELSON-ROSSLAND   MATCH  Lost For Want of Time.  The first cricket match of the  season was played here on Saturday against the Rossland eleven,  an aggregation of good sportsmen  that is always, welcome in Nelson.  Both teams were very shore of  practice, the Rosslanders not having played at all this season and  the local men having had but one  practice. '��� This was very noticeable,  especially in the first innings when  the batting on both sides was pqor.  The home batting was especially  weak, although the bowling was  not nearly up to. the usual Rossland  average, men being retired by full  pitches, long,hops and all kinds of  loose balls that should have been  badly punished!  Rossland won the toss and knock-'  ed up 53 runs. Rolt was top scorer with a rather lucky 14'.'- Marsh,  Rossland's veteran captain, was unfortunate enough to be bowled by  a yorker from Forbes. Crosfield  had-the best average of the Nelson  bowlers,'. sending' down 12 overs  for 13 runs "and 5 wickets, including 4 maidens.** Forbes and Wood-  row captured 2 wickets apiece.  The Rosslanders played three substitutes lent ,them by Nelson, F.  Fletcher, E. E. Vincent and A. P.  Hay. :  Nelson's first venture was most  disastrous, and only Elliott got into double figures! and the innings  closed for 36 runs. The Rossland  bowlers, Hamilton and Wilkie, did  great'execution;the former capturing 3 and the latter 7 wickets.  They bowled 11 overs apiece, Hamilton at a total; expense of 11 runs  with three maidens, and Wilkie for  23 runs with two maidens. ���  , , The .batsmen did better in the  -second innings,-Rossland "compiling  108 runs," Marsh and le Maistro be-;  ing top scorers with 18 -apiece.  Two of the^ substitutes came. next,  Vincent and Hay scoring 14 and 13  respectively.' -'���'___. Maistre fell a  victim to a gallery catch- by John  Elliot, who was- fielding at deep  long on. It was'caught while running at''full speed. No less than  five Nelnon bowlers were tried. -  The Nelson men redeemed themselves-in the*'second innings, and  when stumps') were-drawn at 6:80  thu'y had'compiled 70 runs :for the  Joss -of' only -'three wickets. -��� The  batsmen -were* well set 'and'-the  Rossland bowlers ��� completely demoralized, and there * is no doubt  but that with' seven-wickets still to  fall! the 56 '-runs' ^required ��� to . win  would' easily have- been ��� obtained.  As it- was Rossland. won on the  first innings'by 17'runs: -���-  .'' In Rossland's first innings "Chas"  Matthews,- who was keeping wicket  for Nelson; was'unfortunateenough  to get a severe'blow in-the face  from*'the ball/cutting his lip and  blacking his eye.- ��� (  ' The full score follows:  j    Rossi/and���First Innings.
