RECORD OF THE CANADIANS  1  A:  Report of Colonel Lessard.  Ottawa, Aug. 0.���A semi-official  jitter, dated Kroonstad, May 18th,  'Jias arrived from lieutenaiit-colouel  Lessard,    commanding    the    first  battalion O. M. R. in South Africa.  The letter tells of the 33-mile march  from Cape Town to Stillenbosch in  a day and a half.    From there they  departed for Bloemfontein in three  parts, "B" squadron proceeding by  routh marce to Springfontein, and  from there on April 15th to Bloemfontein.    On.the 21st.this-squadron  was ordered   to   proceed   at once  with   the   1st. Mounted   Infantry  Corps  to Springfield,   where they  were in action under a heavy fire  ou April 22nd.   Tho squadron then  returned with tho 1st Mounted Infantry Corps to Fisher's Farm and  became re-united with the battalion.  "A" squadron entrained at Stillenbosch on April Oth and, after being  carried to Naauwpoort and Bethulie,    were   engaged . as  "transport  escort, arriving at Bloemfontein on  April 22nd without special incident.  The battalion as a whole then relieved tho Inniskillings of outpost  duties at Fisher's Farm, about six  miles north of Bloemfontein.  Proceeding,     lieutenant - colonel  Lessard says:    "A"  squadron and  regimental staff were inspected by  field    martial   commander-in-chief  ��� lord Roberts, on which occasion he  = expressed himself as being highly  satisfied with the appearance of the  men and hoi-ses, and referred to the  behavior of the 2nd battalion, Royal,  Canadian regiment, at Paardeberg,  remarking that he felt sure  that  the 1st battalion, C. M. R., would  "sustain   the reputation>,Canadians  had already won.    The battalion  left Fisher's   Farm   with the   1st  Mounted   Infantry    Corps,' under  command of lieutenant-colonel E.  A'. H. Alderson. i. !This corps forms  part of the 1st M.'I.-brigade,- under  the command, of major-general E.  T. H.Hutton, the establishment^of  ���'which I-enclose. , .   , ���"  ,   ���*, The whole battalion came into ac-  ' >tidn~for-the":flrst**time,'at-12.35 p. m.  ,on the 3rd ."instant,-at Boscliman's  Kop, under the following circum-  staij^es : The 1st C. M. R. furnished  the advance guard tothe first corps.  The advance guard was' under the  command of Mr. C. T. Vau Strau-  benzie and Mr. F. V. Young.   As  usual, the enemy allowed the advanced, party of -the.advance guard  well into their position, which on  this-  occasion   was ' between   two  kopjes.    The firing was very heavy,'  forcing a retirement of the advance  guard, fortunately without casualties.   The battalion then was ordered to dismount for dismounted service, Maxim guns   acting on   our  .right..  After an engagement of a  sfew hours the enemy retired,* our  casualties being   No.  104, Pte.  F.  Brown, slightly wounded ; also several horses.   "We bivouacked that  night about five-miles 'north   of  _Boschmau's_Kop.^.  NELSON:  WEDNESDAY MOANING AUGUST 8  1900  conjunction with 1st M. I. on our  right and left.   As soon as the enemy saw us in possession of their  side of the river they retired.    The  casualties on our   side   were   one  horse   shot   and    a   few   slightly  wounded.   For this engagement the  1st Mounted Infantry corps received  the congratulations of field marshal  commauder-in-cbief   lord   Roberts.  We arrived at Welgelegeu at 1.30  p.m.  on the 7th"inst.    When -the  general received   intelligence that  the enemy, about 8000 strong, were  only eight miles further, at Virginia  Siding, we were at once ordered to  saddle up   and proceed   to Zand  river.    Here the enemy were blowing up the railway lines and bridges.  We.came into   contact with   the  enemy at 4 p.m.    They were occupying a strong position on the  Zand river.   As soon as they saw  us they kept up a heavy artillery  fire.   Finding the enemy too strong  and strongly entrenched, the general ordered   a retirement on   to  Welgelegen.   We remained at Wel-  gelegen one day and a half, and on  the 9 th instant, the 1st Mounted Infantry corps advanced to Duprez  laagor, where it bivouacked for the  night.  On the 10th the 1st corps accompanied the cavalry division, which  by this time had joined us at 11.30  a. m.    The cavalry soon got in contact with the enemy.   Again the  lst-C. M.-R. were called upon to act  dismounted, and were ordered under fire for   several   hours.     The  enemy retired about 3 p. m.   There  were no casualties in the battalion  except a few horses   grazed.    On  the 11th,  12th and  13th, the 1st  corps marched continually until it  reached Kroomstad at about 5 p.m.,  the   13th.    From   t.Vm   7<IH,   +��  tu_.  SAYS CHINESE MUST FIGHT  13th.   From the 14th to-the  19 th the battalion remained, along  with the 1st corps, at Kroomstad,  awaiting supplies.    On the 17th "of  May 100 men of the 1st and 2nd C.  M.  R. took part in an expedition  about 35 to 50 miles north-west,of  Kroonstad to arrest some of the enemy, the general having heard of  their* presence' in ' that,-vicinity.  They returned on the 19th with'one  Boer commandant, nine Johannes-  burg'police and twenty.

If Allied Troops Advauce.  London, August 8.���3:45 a.ni.���  "In case the troops advance, the  Chinese must fight. The suggestion  that the allies should be allowed to  enter Pekin in order to, escort the  ministers to Tien-Tsin is absolutely  impossible."  This is the dictum of Li Hung  Chang.   - It was  transmitted last  evening to William Pritchard Morgan,   member   of   parliament   for  Merthyr-Tydvil,   by   his agent at  Shang-Hai.   The agent had carried  ,to earl Li a message from Mr. Morgan urging that the allied troops be,  allowed to enter the .capital, aiid  stating that a settlement could1, be  made at Tien-Tsin whereby a war  of the world against China will be  averted, but even the optimistic Li  failed   to   hold   out   the slightest  hopes of its feasibility, although he  reiterated to Mr.   Morgan's agent  his declaration that the ministers  had left Pekin, fixing the date, of-  their departure as August 2nd.  Washington, August 7.���The in-,  formation whicli came today that  American troops were engaged  in  the battle at Peitsang established,  positively for the first time that,  notwithstanding    the    difficulties  which general Chaffee had, encountered in debarking troops "/and-'sup-  plies. at least a part; arid a considerable   part,   of  the United  States  force was in the vanguard of the  forward movement.  General Chaffee's dispatch to the  war department conveyed the most  satisfactory evidences that . the-  commanders had .thoroughly, agreed  'in advance upon a plan of action,  On the 4th of May, at 12.30 p. m.,  we again came into contact with the  enemy, and for two hours we were  under a very heavy artillery and  rifle fire. : B squadron was ordered  to hold a farm, while A squadron  advanced 200 yards and dismounted  for- dismounted   duty.    Tho   bat-  '<   talion- behaved as well as could be  expected under a very heavy fire.,  The remarkable part of this engagement was that the 1 st battalion C.  M. R.escaped without any casualties. "The enemy retired,   leaving  behind; a ��� considerable portion   of  their effects, ! which were   burned.  We bivouacked at 5 p. in. twtomiles  north-of Beisebuilt.  The battalion came for the third  time into action-ori the'Sfcli'ihsti, at  2 p. m., the enemy again occupying  -a strong 'position, on the. Vet river  and surrouhdingkopjes.   A squadron was ordered to escort A" battery,  R. H. A., and B squadron acted, dismounted, as soon as.the advance;  party had;shown itself within rifle  fireof the Vet River.   .The enemy i  at once opened fire on them, forcing  them to retire.   As the direction of  the enemy's fire could not be located, B squadron, under my command,  was ordered to dismount and en-  gage the enemy, if possible, which  they eventually did.  On this occasion Mr. Borden and  ���Mv. Turner, with five men-, swam  the river, and when on the opposite  banks found some 40 or. 5.0 'of the  enemy entrenched in a stone kraal.:  The remainder, of. BJ ..squadron was  then ordered to mount and cross  the river. The crossing was effected under pretty* sharp rifle-fire in  British Ministers Transferred.  London,   August   7.���In    consequence .of   the retirement of   the  right honorable sir Horace Rum-  bold-from-his-po8t*~as"British ara-  bassador'at Vienna and the retirement of   the right honorable   sir  Henry Drummond   Wolff,   British  ambassador at Madrid, the honorable sir Francis Richards Plunkett,  British minister at   Brussels, and  sir: Henry Mortimer Durand, British riiinister at Teheran, Persia,��will  succeed   them    respectively.    Edmond   ..Constantino    Phillips,   the  British minister at Rio de Janeiro,  is transferred to . Brussels, and sir  Henry    Neville   Deering,   British  minister to Mexico, has been transferred to Rio de; Janeiro.  Collision in Indiana.  17  Lafayette,.Indiana. August 7.������  7A south bound .-passenger train  which left here yesterday morning  collided with a, light freight engine  at South Raub,- south of here.  James Hudlow, fireman of the passenger train j was instantly killed.  Louis Raub, the engineer of the;  freight engine, and his fireman are:  missing. Henry Whitesett, a passenger, and Eugene McCool, a  freight brakeman, were 7 fatally  injured. . .  Provisions Running Short.  Shang-Hai, August 7.���The Japanese consul here received by wire  today a message to the . effect that  the foreign ministers at Pekin were  safe oh August 1st, but that they  expected a renewal of the attack  by the Chinese any moment. It  was added that only 25 cartridges  each and six days' pro visions were  left.   It   was   also   said   that the |  and that there is every, indication  ���that this plan had been followed,  as geueral Chaffee on Friday,- sent  (the cable saying that the _attack  upon   the   Chinese* atv Pei "Tsang  would be made,on Sunday, the day  when admiral Remey and the press'  correspondents say the fighting occurred.   The most positive addition  to the news of the day was the brief  line from the Associated Press- correspondent   at "Tien-Tsin* stating  that the ninth and fourteenth . iu-  [fantrv-,^ Reed's * battery   and/ 'the  Trriarines'were iii'tne battle'df Pei  Tsang.-; It-is perhaps noteworthy1  'and significant that in this plan of  attack upon the enemy at Pei Tsang  the American,' British and Japanese  forces were joined in the movement  to turn   tiie enemy's right flank,  while   the   Russians   and   French  operated together on the opposite  side of the river against the enemy's  left.   This may indicate the line of  ; cleavage among the allies.     It is  also   exceedingly   significant   that  general Chaffee does not mention  the German force at all.     The war  department officials do not believe  that this could have been due to an  oversight on his part, if it was ar:  ranged that they were to' participate in the movement. It therefore  seems likely that the Germans were  not   engaged at Pei Tsang.   It is  tho?ogJit2^poss^le^iaJJb^y_mayT.be_  "acting independently.  Another cablegram came to the  state departments late this afternoon   from * minister   Conger   at  Pekin, the second that has been received direct from, him since June  12th.   It is the first which has come  direct from the minister since the  above date, the other having been  received through the Chinese minister here, "^r. Wu.   Today's telegram shows that the situation in  the Chinese capital is still of a very  serious   character.    So  important  were the statements contained in  the dispatch that a conference was  held by wire between several of the  officials here and the president at  Canton, Ohio, lasting several hours.  At the conclusion the  cablegram  was made public. / The agent niakes  this   comment:   "The -consuls are  without confirmation."   These messages have been sent to lord Salisbury, accompanied by a statement  by Mr.  Morgan   urging   that the  allies should take no step to endanger the lives of the ministers.  A message from the Belgian! minister,; dated' Pekin, August;;2nd,,  seems effectually to dispose of tiie  rumors that, the ministers have  either lef t or are intending to leave  Pekin.  The Chinese minister in London,  sir Chi Chen Lo Feng* says he has  received a telegram from China  announcing that a long imperial  edict was issued on August 2ud,  authorizing the immediate and safe  conveyance of all Europeans in  Pekin to Tien-Tsin. Several dispatches are  Che-Foo, telegraphing Monday, says:  "The fighting lasted "seven hours,  and the allies, when niy report left,  were pursuing the Chinese, biit  owing to the floods, progress was  difficult." ,  Thus the Chit,   e Avill have time  to reform and to,-,'ecover from, the  effects of battle. [Only a small garrison with 14 guns remains at Tien-  Tsin, where some .anxiety is felt because   of   the   report    that   5,000  Chinese troops are said to be making a two days' march to tho southeast.   All   ther  reports   agree    in  praising the bravery and organization of the Japanese, but none of  them bring the* story much beyond  general Chaffee's report.   Li Ping  Heng, accordingr to' the Shang-Hai  .correspondent of the Standard, has  been appointed^ generalissimo    of  the   Chinese   forces,   and has left  Pekin to command the troops outside the city. $ ^ t.  A;.* Shang-Hai Special says that  official advices>from Tokio announce  that armed collisions nave occurred  between parties r of Russians and  Japanese ' outside ' of Taku. This,  however, as it |comes by way of  Shang-Hai,1 must'.await confirmation before,being' credited.' The  Shanghai correspondent of the Daily'  Mail, confirming the massacre of  missionaries at/Chu Chow Fu, says  two American women were��among  the victims.  The Sebastopol correspondentof  the Daily Graph|c asserts - that the  Russian'governm.eht will send>125J-  000 additional tvoojis from Odessa  to the far east bjafore the end of the  year.   From the tenor of the Berlin  dispatches it is rumored that an  agreement   has ��� been   reached < betweenr emperor Nicholas and em-  iperor Williamf whereby the Ger-  1 man troops will  be permitted to  .pro'ceedlto China by, way of Siberia,  The royal arsenal ,dt Woolwich has  .been- ordered .'to-'send   30,000,000  ;rounds   of   small   ammunition : to  ,-China. ' " ' -.-.-���<     -/  1   Berlin,   August    7.���The  Ger-  ,m'ari foreign pffie'e up to tonight  ^had received no confirmation of the  farming news 'from Tien-Tsin or  of the report'.that the advance .;on  Pekin had begun; but considers the  advices that the Japanese and Russian forces'". had a severe'engagement with.the;^hinese.Sunday and  drove'back.tne ene'my^tb'be' reliable."  It is pointed out, however, that the  occurrence   of such-1 ah ' en-gage-"  ment   may    mean   that   an   advance   , is     now     in     progress.  The   foreign   office   admits that  serious differences have broken out  . between the powers with reference  to   the advance itself * and to the  measures that are being taken in  the    Yang-Tse    valley.      German  opinion regarding the  steps  Great  Britain has taken in the, Yang-Tse  region has been expressed through  the Cologne Gazette. -The opiuion  is one of disapproval of the steps  already taken or contemplated in-  PKICE FIVE CENTS  FIRING NEAR ELANDS RIVER  Report From Boberts.  London, August 7.���Lord Roberts  reports to the war office under date  of Pretoria, August 6th, as follows':  "Harrismith surrendered on August  4th. The neighboring country seems  quiet.    Kitchener is with the force  south of the Vaal river. Yesterday  he was joined by a/detachment of  Brabant's Horse and the Canadian'  regiment.    The Boers attacked the  garrison   at   Elands river on the  morning of August 4th.     Information was sent to 'Carrington, who'  was on his way to' Elands river.  Ian Hamilton, who reached Rusten-  burg yesterday,   reported  hearing  heavy  firing   in   the direction of  Elands   river.     Today   the firing  seems more distant, which looks as  if the 'Elands river garrison had  been relieved and was retiring to'-  wards Zeerust."       ��� . v  sengers on the Union.

It would be idle for The Tribune  to discuss the ethics of journalism  with the g. o. m. of-the Miner.   It  is greatly a question of standard  and training.   By a few it maybe  considered legitimate for a man to  sell,one-halfvof his paper, through  which the purchasers may denounce  the policy of the paper itself, but  it must be confessed that it is a  trifle confusing to read on one page  that the country is threatened .with  the curse 'of "another term of Tur-  nerisni, and on the next that the  curse threatened is Martinism., It  savors,of the' policy of a price, but  is evidently of  such a policy as  would commend itself to one who  -secured���a-careful^-training^on���a  Brandon weekly.    Others may consider the "trade" question, which  ���the Miner has raised, as one quite  outside   the   ethics of  journalism  altogether,    and    more    properly  classified     under    the    head    of  "finance."   When these difficulties  are ,met at the outset it becomes  apparent that the discussion   desired by the g. o. m..would be futile.  . In another column .a correspondent directs attention to the yellow,  journalism which fills the evening  field. That his views will be shared  by the great majority of the people  of Nelson goes without saying.  Will Be Buried Today.

Paul's   Valley,   Indian   Territory, August 7.���-As a result of a  pitched   battle   with  moonshiners  near Johnson, 20 miles from Paul's  Valley, one  deputy   marshal- was  wounded    slightly    and    another,  Schrimpsher of   Paul's Valley,   is  missing.   The outlaws escaped in  the darkness.   It is believed that  Schrimpsher followed the band and  was killed.    Reinforcements were  sent from here today.  The outlaws  are part of a band that was raided  near Center a few days ago, when  five of the members, together with  a- still   and a quantity of liquor,  were   taken.    The   leader,   named  Tice, a veteran Arkansas distiller,  and other members   of the  gang  escaped.   After four days' pursuit  they were located by a posse of  deputies   in   a deep   ravine   near  Johnson.   A demand to surrender  was   answered   with  a volley   of  bullets and shots were exchanged  for   over   an   hour.   The deputies  surrounded the outlaws' position to*  await daylight, but the latter escaped during the night.  Exportation of Arms Prohibited.  -.

THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Saving's Bank Branch  ~CURBENT~RATK OV INTKRKST PAID,  NEW SYSTEM OF TELEPHONE  Without Wires.  A young inventor of Philadelphia,  lias devised and is fast perfecting a  system of telephony whereby the  voice, as well as the signals of the  Morse alphabet, is transmitted  through earth and air without the  use of wires. A practical demonstration of wireless telephony has  been given and a company, named  after professor A. Frederick Collins,  an electric engineer, has been  formed.     '.        ;   Q'  The Collins plan is quite distinct  from the Marconi system. It uses  no coherer, which is the salient  point of the Marconi system. This  coherer is a very delicate device,  and must be adjusted to the minutest   nicety.    ; Out-of-door   tests  ..have been made   under favorable.  ��� and unfavorable conditions, and ap-  '. parently the new wireless telephony  and telegraphy is a success.  Though still in a crude state, the.  verity of the principle that terrestrial waves of electricity are as inductive as the other waves utilized  by   Marconi-; Dblbear' aud   others  . seems to have been proved. Larger  machines are to be built, and tests  of the most rigid character will  follow.  Professor Collins is not yet 35,  but he has been a worker of no  mean sort in the field of electrical  endeavor for a good many years. ,  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  After taking the scientific course at  the Chicago university he joined  the Thomson-Houston Electric Company and did a great deal of experimental work for them. In his spare  moments he studied telephony.  When Marconi's system of wireless  telegraphy was brought out several  years ago, professor Collins read a_  description of it.* He promptly set  to work to construct a similar apparatus und succeeded in duplicating Marconi's feats on a small scale.  In response to a request for a nofc  too technical account of his system  for-the benefit of the lay'reader,  professor Collins said : '.'It is really  too soon to set myself up as an Edison or a Tesla, aud I do not want to  pose as anything else than a student  of telephony.  "In the first place ifc should be  said that while the earth is a poor  conductor of electricity the currents  projected through it meet with, no  such resistance as the ether waves  utilized by Marconi. The network  of telephone, telegraph and electric  light wires, trolley wires, tall steel  skeleton structures and the hundred  and one obstacles that divert; and  disrupt air currents are not encountered underground. Again, some  strata of * earth are pretty good, conductors ' of electricity, while others  are ' hon-eouductors. Thus, it is  possible to protect two currents,  say at different depths, and to  secure perfect insulation.  ,. "Now, as to syntony, or electric  tuning, a term the layman does not  understand usually, let me explain.  In, listening to., .a .phonograph,  say, one may distinguish the notes  of a certain instrument in a band if  he tries to. He simply attunes his  ear and his mind to the vibrations  produced by that one instrument.  So also in wireless telephony.  Everybody understands how a tuning fork will respond, that'is, will  sound to a certain note struck on  the piano. A scientist would-say  ifc vibrated when something wifch  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE.-TORONTO.  Capital Authorized  Capital Paid up  Rest  $2,500,000  $2,458,603  $1,700,000  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager.  E. Bay, Inspector.  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M. LAY, Manager.  the same rate vibration was set in  motion.  " Electric-tuning is analogous. A  given receiver properly tuned will  respond to a certain number of  ether or air-vibrations per second.  So ifc will to terrestrial vibrations,  but it will remain unaffected by  another_rate_of_vibrations Thus,  any number of ether or terrestrial  waves vibrating at different rates,  would nofc interfere with one another, nor would any set of vibrations affect the receiver, except  the one especially attuned to its  rate.  " Now," continued professor Collins, "we.take an ordinary Bell receiver and pick up the vibrations  set loose at a distant point with no  connecting media save mother  earth. Each instrument (transmitter and receiver) is connected  by wire with two copper plates or  rather a copper coil and a copper  plate proper. The plate is buried  in the earth at varying distances  from 1 foot to 30 feet. 'The copper  coil is incased in the cabinet. The  sounds���that is, the vibrations���  are transmitted ,over the -wire to  the sunken plate, thence, through  the earth to the corresponding,,  plate buried at the receiving point  connected with the receiviriginstru-  ment. Of course, the layman will  understand that there are batteries  attached to the cabinets and a  Crookes tube as well.  " The induced current passes  simultaneously with the earth, current. At present I am working on  a system* of electrical resonance or  syntony where 2200 or 2000 sub-;  scribers may talk without conflicting. I do not think this problem  will be harder than articulate  speech without wires. A more or  less mechanical device I am giving  time and thought to is a bell for  signalling, all devices extant not  being applicable to our telephone.  On each- telephone we will have to  place a couple of discs resembling  the combination lock on a safe.  Then, when Smith wants to call  Jones, whose number is 142, for  instance, he will turn' the dial to  142. This will put his 'phone in  tune with Jones'. That is, the number of ohms resistance regulated  by this combination lock, illustration anywhere between 2000 and  100,000 ohms, will equal the resistance indicated" by Jones' instrument, and then Jones' signal will  be rung. If Brown and Robinson  are talking in the same - locality  they will not hear Smith and Jones,  nor be heard.for the resistance on  their circuit is different, and so on."
