 T  mmmmmmmmmmmm  DAILY EDITION   BY��������� MAIL-  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  ��11  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING JULY 31  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  y��%  ift_\  ''���A  , BELIEVE CONGER IS ALIVE  Efforts to Communicate.  Washington, July 30.���The effect  of the day's news from China was  to freshen the hope that the government can soon get into direct  communication with minister Conger. The mass of testimony as to  his being alive as late as the 22nd  instant is now so great as to warrant the department in resuming  the consideration of projects for  the future. With all of its anxiety  to get Mr. Conger and the Americans in Pekin safely away, the department is proceeding with proper,  - caution and is by no means disposed to accept any proposition  that would unduly jeopardize their  -���'lives.  Such might be the result of -an  off-hand proposition to have the  Chinese government deliver the  foreign ministers at Tien-Tsin, for  i t is realized that the escort might  be overpowered by superior forces  of Boxers on the way to the sea.  TJie state department has come to  the conclusion that Mr. Conger is  the best person to judge of the  conditions under which his deliverance shall be effected, and therefore it is again looking to the Chinese government to place it in  communication with Mr. Conger in  order that it may be advised by  him.  That requirement was the. first of  the conditions   laid down by Mc-  . Kiuley in his answer to the appeal  of the Chinese emperor, so that the  diplomatic situation cannot be. said  to have beeu materially changed by  the developments of today.  The state department has inclined  to regard consul Fowler's message  ns a most valuable piece' of .confirm-  , atory evidence yet received as to  the safety of the Pekin diplomats.  .- Up to a late hour, no answer had  -.been received to tho second Conger  message, but in .view of consul  Fowler's news the officials-were" inclined to look forward to another  reply. ] It.is known here that Ger-  ; many- is one , of the governments  winch is "putting forth every effort1  to) get into direct, communication,  " 'with"' the "mfuis'ters,T'tind, like the'?  . United States, has had recourse to  , the ������'underground" route.* An object of special solicitude is to discover whether baroness von Ketteler has escaped, or whether she received the fate of her husband: Up  to the present nothing has been received to throw any light on the  subject. _  say that those outside will surrender,  and that this will practically end  the Free State army.  The Boers, say they would not  have surrendered had they not  been surrounded. ������ The prisoners  have been placed in a laager, under  guard, and will be kept there until  all arrive.  The New Lord Chamberlain.   -  London, July 30.���The earl of  Clarendon has been appointed lord  chamberlain iu succession to lord  Hopetown, who was recently appointed governor general of the  Australian commonwealth. -  Li Hung Chang's Memorial.  London, July 30.���Sir Chih Shen,  Chinese minister in London, has  been notified by. telegraph that Li  Hung Chang, conjointly with the  other viceroys and governors, has  -memorialized the throne to urge  the immediate sending of the foreign representatives under escort  to Tien-Tsin or, the restoration to  them of free telegraphic communication with their governments.  FREE STATERS SURRENDER  An Impressive Scene.  Bloemfontein, July 31.���General  Hunter, having a written unconditional surrender of all the Boers in  * Caledon valley, attended to accept  the surrender. General Prinsloo,  lately elected to the chief command, arrived and tried to repudiate the unconditional surrender.  General Hunter, however, refused  any concessions except to allow the  Boers to keep one riding horse.  About 11 o'clock the troops were  drawn up in two long lines on the  hills and oyer the valley and the  Boers rode in between, throwing  ���down their rifles, together with a  Jiotley,    collection     of     clothing,  lankets and gear such as was found  general- Cronje's laager.      The  ficksburg commando was the first  b lay down its arms, and consisted  Jf about 550 men.   Then came the  Ladybrand commando with about  50 men, 15 horses, two guns and 50  pagons were given up.     General  Prinsloo and commandant Crowther  [ere received by general Hunter at  iis   tent   where   they were   well  treated and accorded every courtesy.  Many   of  the Boers have gone  through to Naauwpoort and will  surrender   to   general MacDonald,  and others are still arriving here.  The  Harrismith   and Frede commandoes are yet at large, as well as  some   Boers   who got out of thej  valley at night, but the prisoners |  DISCREPANCY IN REPORTS  Various Pekuv'Advices. '*" ~-i'*'"  Washington, July 30.���As is  always the case with these Chinese  advices, a" discrepancy appears  upon a'comparison of the German  and Japanese advices. The German report says the attack stopped  ou the 12th. The Japanese report  places the cessation of firing on the  17th. The state department officials believe the Japanese advice to  be based on the Chinese calendar,  which is about five days ahead of  the Gregorian calendar, and this  would account for the apnarent  discrepancy.  Another curious statement, however is contained in the Japanese  report to the effect that six legations were being still defended on  the 22od. This is in apparent conflict with Mr. Conger's last reported  statement that ' the legationers  were "in the British legation under  continued shot and shell."  It was understood that Mr. Conger meant that all the legationers  were in the British legation,  though this might have been a  strained interpretation of his message, and the various legations  mentioned in the Japanese dispatch may be still .peopled. -  Military men here are amazed at  the statement that the legations  successfully resisted"' nearly'; ��� av  month's incessant shelling by ten5  battalions- of Chinese. That -any  traceof a brick building should remain after sucji a fbombardment is,  ''utterly'inconceivable"torthem.     " r  Forest Fire Near Rossland.  Rossland, July 30.���A great forest fire has been raging for the last  two days on Sheep creek, about  seven miles south-east of here. It  It started in a swamp near Sheep  Creek station, and has spread until  yesterday jt raged along both sides  of the creek and climbed the mountains. A high wind today swept  the flames two miles along the  creek and up the mountains on  both sides until it endangered what  is known as Barney's ranch and the  Butte mills. Fred Stephenson, lineman for the C.P.R., who went down  to repair wires, found all telegraph  and telephone lines down for a  distance of two miles^but by some  freak of nature the C. P. R. wire is  working, although lying along the  grouud^"over~_charfed~~ logs. S te^  phenson had a narrow escape from  being cut off by the flames, and  ono man who tried to get through  with a buggy had his clothes and  buggy ' scorched. The flames  burned with v such fury that they  leaped far above the tree tops, and  the whole southern horizon of the  city was lighted up by them all  day and dense volumes of smoke  swopt over Deer Park mountain  and across Trail creek to the city.  Alpha Will be Surrendered.  Seattle, July 30.���It is reported  here that the owners of the British  steamer Alpha, which defied the  order of the treasury department  and landed a cargo and passengers  from Vancouver at Nome last  mouth, are to surrender her ~to the  United States government, pay  whatever fine may be imposed and  seek for her an American register.  In case the register is obtained she  will enter the coal and lumber  trade between this port and San  Francisco. At present she is in the  fishing trade in British Columbia  waters, fearing to venture out to  sea, where she might be seized by  United States revenue cutters on  tiie lookout for her.  New King of Italy.  Rome, July 31.���A proclamation  from the queen regent has arrived  announcing the accession of the  new king, and stating that parliament would be convened a'fter the  funeral. Several warships have  started to meet king Victor. It is  reported that emperor William will  attend the funeral.  KINC HUMBERT'S LAST WORD  His Queen's Grief.  Monsea, July 30.��� It appears  that when king Humbert was  wounded, he exclaimed, "It is  nothing." The royal carriage covered the distance to the royal villa  at full speed, requiring but three  minutes. The king expired on the  way and, although placed on a bed,  was dead when the doctors arrived.  Bressi is1 young, tall and stately.  It appears that he remained four  in Prato and two days at- Bologna,  after which he camp here.  When queen Margherita arrived  at the yilla.it was. still 'hoped that  the king would survive, and when  the truth was broken to her a  heartrending scene ensued. Bursting into tears she exclaimed: " It is  the greatest crime of the century.  Humbert was good and faithful.  No person could have loved- his  people more. He was one who  bore ill will to none."  When the queen's mother arrived  there was another affecting scene.  The assassin is strictly guarded  in prison. He continues to., preserve absolute indifference, and took  his meals today without any signs  of being affected by his position.  A second revolver was found on  the public stand in the gymnastic  grounds.  The room where the embalming  is proceeding is filled with flowers.  The queen herself placed a wreath  on the bier, and knelt and prayed  beside the' body, and in- spite of the  entreaties of the prince and princess, she refuses to quit the  chamber.  ALL EUROPE IS INDIGNANT  Comments of the Press. ��  London, July 31.-���The entire  European press utters a'-cry of in-,  dignation and horror at the Monsea  .crime and expresses sympathy for'  Italy and- queen -Margherita. The  difficulty of dealing with, such insensate' anarchist'- outrages'. is' "expressed- iriV,many~q'uarters.:- -The  Daily Chronicle observes: The dagger that killed Carnot was no pro-  tast against monarchical institutions; and Bressi, who had been in  America, might have had just as  coherent a motive for taking president McKinley's life as he had for  , shooting Humbert.  Curiously enough it 'seems that  there had been forewarnings of the  tragedy. The Berliner Tageblatt  reminds its readers of its news from  Gratz on June 19th, when an Italian  received a letter from hi** son saying  ��hat the lot had fallen on the latter  to assassinate the king of Italy and  that other princes were doomed.  At Vienna it is ascertained that  Bressi, stayed at Buda-Pest two  years ago^ at which time he had  plenty of money and attracted the  attention of .the police, whoarrest^  ed him as being an anarchist or for  having anarchistic proclivities. Suddenly on the news of the assassination of the empress of Austria he  disappeared. Many arrests of Italian suspects have occurred recently  at Ischl, the summer residence of  the Austrian emperor.  Condolences Acknowledged.  Washington, July 20.���Baron  Fava, the Italian ambassador, has  acknowledged the receipt of president McKinley's telegram of condolence to the Italian government.  Baron Fava telegraphed: "Your  telegram received and transmitted  to my government. I am' deeply  grateful for the part the president,  your excellency and the American  people take in our great sorrow.  (Signed) Fava.  How Aguinaldo Was Shot.  Henderson, Kentucky, July 30.���  First lieutenant John Wilbur Ward  of the Thirty-third infantry, how!  in the Philippines, which regiment  was engaged in the chase of Aguinaldo, has written a letter to his  father here, under date of Cabugao,  June 14th, in wliich he says: "The  Thirty-third has wounded and  possibly killed Aguinaldo. He  had gathered guerrilla bands  to the number of 800 men  when the Thirty-third4was ordered  after him. His force tried to scatter,  but it was too late. We hit them  in small parties. Aguinaldo and his  bodyguard of six men were fired on  at 800 yards range while they were  running, Aguinaldo riding a big  gray American horse. The horse  was killed and Aguinaldo wounded  in the bod;>,. it is since  learned, leavjhg a trail. of  blood as he was carried off. All  his private papers- ware captured,  incriminating several native-priests  and several rich natives; who were  furnishing him guns and ammunition as well as information regarding the movements of the United  States troops. Our men were how  exhausted, having been over three  weeks on the trail, with forced  marches aud little to eat. The  rocks had worn out half the shoes  of the command when the regiment  returned.".      .-v.   CAUGHT IN A DEADLY TRAP  .Why Prinajqb Surrendered. -  - London, July. 30.���The following  official dispatch-jvas received today  from lord Roberts:  ; Pretoria, July 30.���On July 26th  general* MacDonald fought a rear  guard action with the enemy from  early morning until dark, within  nine miles of Nauwpoort,' in the  Bethlehem hills,-resulting in his  effectually blocking Nauwpoort  Nek to the Boer \wagons.  - Hunter reports, that' the enemy  twice checked hisfadvance by holding strong positions on two neks;  one of which was taken before  dark by the Scots, the Royal Irish,  ,the _ Wiltshires - and < the Leinster  Regiment. , Oui* casualties were  only five or six, ~\,The second, nek  was.taken during^the night by the  Scots and - Guards' without opposition, the enemy retiring closely to  Naauwpoort.       ���'}  Prisoners taken stated that 1200  burghers woulcLsurrender if guaranteed that they would be treated  as -prisoners of war .and- not as  rebels. To this,I had assented. As  a'result of these, operations general  Prinsloo, commanding the Boers,  asked under a flag of truce to general Hunter this, morningra four  days'-armistice,~fdr peace negotiations. General Hunter replied that  the only terms __ he could accept  were unconditional'surrender, and  until^these wereicp'mplied with hostilities could - hot "cease. ' I ex-_  pressed.my approval and told Hunter on.no account .to,,,enter, into negotiations.* ---���" <&"�����*���-���-* -"''-������,  As I am writingra' telegram has  come ' from Hunter saying that  Prinsloo had written a second letter expressing willingness" to hand  over himself with his men, rifles,  ammunition and other firearms upon condition that the horses, saddles, bridles and other possessions  of the burghers be" guaranteed  them and they be free to return to their homes. I replied that  the surrender must be absolutely  unconditional, that all rifles, ammunition, horses and other possessions must be given up and that  the burghers be considered prisoners  of war. I added that Prinsloo's  overtures will not be allowed in any  way to interfere with Hunter's  operations, which must be continued  until the enemy is defeated or has  surrendered.  DETAILS OF THE TRAGEDY  How King Humbert Died.  Monsea, July 30���Few additional  details of the terrible tragedyi are  available. It happened so quietly  and unexpectedly that the king was  dead almost before the spectators  realized what had occurred. No  special precautions had been taken.  Very few police were in attendance  and only a small guard of soldiers  was keeping the way* for- the carriage open. The king, amid the  cheers-of the crowd, came out smiling accompanied by his aide' de  camp general Vaglia.  He had entered the carriage and  was just driving off, when three  revolver shots were, fired in quick  succession? Some witnesses assert  that Bressi was seen just previously  waving his hands and cheering.  _ - The first shot wounded the king  in the neck, the second, the fatal  one, pierced his heart and the third  broke the arm of the already dying  sovereign. The crowd was stunned  by the unexpected scene, but  speedily seized the assassin. He  did not attempt to escape and was  roughly treated until the carbineers formed a cordon and secured  him from the fury of the people. ,  An eye witness says that immediately after the shots were fired  the, king fell back,' pressing his  hands to his heart.-I' He was instantly supported by general Vaglia, who told the coachman to drive  disbanded. The body of Charles  was buried in the potter's field  before daylight.^ There is a dispute  about who killed Charles, and the  $600 reward will probably be  donated to the fund started by the  mayor for the widows of the murdered policeman. Mayor Capdeville  has rigidly enforced his order to  keep the saloons closed.-  New Ambassador to Italy.  Washington, July 30.���The president has tendered the appointment of ambassador to Italy to former governor Roger Wolcot't of  Massachusetts.  SLOGAN AND LARDO9 MINES  with all speed to the  his exclamation "Io is  did not utter a word.  nothing" he   Quirinal-Closed~Upr"  Rome, July 30.���The conservator  of the quirinal has sealed up all the  private apartments of king Humbert and all the doors of the palace  except one. The members of the  diplomatic corps all went this morning to the foreign office to tender  their' condolences. The visitors'  book has already been filled with  the names of callers. Profound  calm prevails throughout the  country. , Such members of the  chamber of deputies as are in Rome  met this afternoon and adopted a  resolution execrating the crime and  expressing unbounded sorrow.  Off to-China; "v  Santiago de Cuba, July 30.���Tho  second battalion of the Fifth United  States infantry, major Borden commanding, will leave tomorrow for  the United States.

DOUBT IS NOW DISPELLED  Japan Owed Nothing.  London, July 31, 4 "a. m.���Sir  Claude MacDonald's welcome despatch, dated Pekin, July 20 th, and  received in cipher, is accepted on  all sides as < dispelling any doubts  that may still have existed regarding the genuiness of the despatches.  Owing to. an. error: .in,, transmission-  the message %'fails " to -.show the  number of wounded.' David\ Oli-  phant and Warren were two student interpreters. The message  fails to mention the oth'erlegations  and other matters of distressing  importance, but it should be borne  in mind that the British minister  may not be aware that all' his  previous dispatches have ' been  suppressed. He may be under the  impression that the government is  fully posted regarding all., recent  occurrences.  Apart from the dispatch, there is  practically no fresh news, although  a special from Tien-Tsin asserts the  British and American forces are  getting ready to advance within 48  hours.  Li Hung Chang remains at Shang-  Hai. He says that the great heat  has prevented his continuing the  -journeyto Pekin.  Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, the  chancellor of the exchequer, explained to parliament yesterday  that the British government has  incurred no financial liability to  Japan for military assistance in  China. The proposed guarantee  depended iipon the Japanese sending a larger number of troops than  she has sent and at an earlier date,  and the offer was not accepted by  the Japanese government.  Murder on Yukon River.  v Victoria. July 30.���Because the  scow on which ���Jfour. men were  travelling down the Yukon river  frequently struck on sand bars,  Alex. King of Sacramento, an old  miner sixty-five years of age, shot  and killed Herbert Davenport of  New York, the river pilot. King  made the other men promise, at the  point of a rifle, to say that the  shooting was accidental, but upon  their arrival at Dawson they handed King over the police,  Killed by a Detective.  Lebanon, Pa., July 30.���Fred  Zeigler, a German, was shot and  instantly killed today by Otto  Borshor, a detective of Pottsville,  Pa. Borsher was arresting Zeigler  on the charge of kidnapping the  twelve year old daughter of John  G. Harter of Pottsville.  New Orleans is Quiet.  New Orleans, July 30.���The  city is very quiet.

Mr.  Broderick also read a dispatch in  which the statement was made that'  a strong body of troops, composed  almost entirely of Hwang Sus, was  around the legations and that the  Chinese were forced. to block the  river with sunken craft, with a  breach on'the left bankjn order to'  flood the .country to -the eastward.'

He appeared to have had  .several names. The one he gave  , last night when taken into custody  for the murder of the king of Italy  was- one. Another was" Angelus  Bressi, and another, by which he  was known .to those who knew bim  in Paterson, was Caetano Bressi.  He was employed in Hamil &  Booth's silk mills. His close friend  there was Cariboni Sperandio, the  man who a few weeks ago  shot down his foreman and  then killed himself, leaving  behind a letter, telling how he had  he had been selected to kill king  Humbert and having 'a choice,  owing to his living so  far   away  irom_=_Italy��_killed_his--foreman-  instead. Arfew months ago, a man  said to be count Mqletski, the head  of the Italian anarchists, was in  Paterson and during his stay Sperandio and Bressi were companions  and they showed.him about'the  city and introduced him to others  in the city. It would seem that his  friend having faltered at regicide,  Bressi took up his burden where  Sperandio refused it, and went  across the ocean to carry out the  decree that Humbert should die.  a test shipment of two and one half  tons to the ore sampler - here, while #  the Soho  sent  out  a carload- to^  Everett. .,*>  '     ,.    ,: ���*>-*l3  , I The Lardo-Duncan has joined the^n  shipping districts. -..The Lavina has^S  sent out the first instalment of >af%  ,100-toh  shipment.; \ This, minet'isltl  owned by the Lavina:ButtenC6n4^  solidated Company, in .whibh Newif  .York capital hasVnowSbeen-intei-^I  ,ested by^John; McKane;,and* 'Ale'x^i  Dick of Rossland.-   * >, r'l.&V'^t'&fm  * /In the Lardeau extensivex'workdsBs*f  being done on^the Silver.Cup;.wHile%3  the Lucky Jim, near <FergusonTis^|  about  to  make, a - test^shipment^M  The Nettie L. has its ore house"fuIl/W* .

Monterey, Mexico, July 30.���At  Mateahuala, a mining camp south  of Monterey in the state of San  Luis Potosi, a fire broke out in the  La Pass mine and before the miners  could reach the surface many of  them were entombed and either  burned to death or suffocated. It is  thought the loss of life will reach  30. There is great excitement in  town and the number of missing  men can not be accurately determined. Already 11 bodies have  been removed. Ramon Gomez, the  mine foreman, boldly descended the  shaft and went into the burning  chamber for the purpose of aiding  the unfortunate miners. He was  overcome with smoke and perished.  His body has been recovered. The  fire raged fiercely for 11 hours.  Not Hostages Wu Says.  Washington, July 30.���Regarding the report that the ministers  were being held as hostages in  Pekin, Mr. Wu said it was very unlikely. They might possibly be  under restraint for their own protection, but that was all, he  thought.  RELIABLE NEWS OF PEKIN  *    Sir Claude McDonald Writes.

Since July 10th  there has been an armistice, but a  cordon is strictly drawn on both  sides of the position. The Chinese  barricades are close to ours.  All the British and the children  are in the British legation. The  casualties are 62 killed, including  captain Strouts. A number of  wounded are in the hospital, including captain Halliday.

Cape Nome was worked for  all it was worth by the merchants  "of Seattle' and the United States  ���v transportation   companies,   but it  has been worked out and something  new will have to be devised to vie-,  ���timize-those-who failed-to-take_the_  Nome baic.  "The proposal, which is credited  to sir Wilfrid Laurier, for overcoming the obstruction which the  senate' is giving the house of  commons will no doubt meet with a  great deal of approval throughout  the Dominion.    It is suggested that  - in cases of deadlock between the  ' two  houses over any measure, a  joint vote of the two bodies shall  - be taken, and the matter in dispute  determined by the majority vote.  As this would accord the members  of the appointed chamber the same  voice as those elected by the people  it is. difficult to see,what valid  objection could be taken to it.  The present feeling against the  senate, is not due so much, to the  fact that measures passed by the  commons have been thrown out by,  the senate, as by th'e manner-in  wbich the result has been achieved.  It not infrequently happened in  cases of conflict that .measures  which   passed   the popular  house  'with a majority of 30, or, 35, were  thrown out by the senate with  majorities of one or two upon divisions in which the total vote, was  not equal to the majority by which  tliey were passed by the commons  Objection is not taken to the members of fie senate having a voice.  It is simply directed against a system whereby a member of the sen  ate has virtually four times the  voice of the member in the lower  house.  QUESTION OF ACTING MAYOR  Meeting of Council.  The matter of appointing a head  for the corporation during the absence of mayor Houston on leave  agitated the city council last night.  At the last regular meeting alderman Irvine was named by resolution to fulfill the duties of mayor,  but last night alderman Hall remarked that the statutes did not  provide lor such an appointment,  save in the event of the death or  resignation of the mayor. The  problem was solved by appointing  alderman Irvine chairman of the  meeting and authorizing him to  sign checks in this capacity.  ��� The petition of the Fairview resi-'  dents for water services was gone  into again, having been laid over  from last week's meeting. A further offer of 700 feet of two-inch  pipe or its equivalent in cash was  made. This is in addition to the  previous offer of a $750 cash bonus.  The council could not, however, see  its way to make the $2500 expenditure necessary to lay the service  and the petition was referred back  for further consideration.  Miss Bertha Hutton, corner of  Hendryx and Robson streets, applied for city water, the creek from  which she secured her supply having run dry. Eventually a water  main will be laid past this house,  but the council declined to make an  extension at the present time.  Tenders for curbing on Baker  street were opened ,anbL read as  follows: Steve Wilson $1:10 per  lineal foot, Shackleton & Laidlaw  $1.20 per lineal foot.c Aldermen  Morrison and Arthur moved that  the Wilson tender be accepted.  Carried. ,.  The matter of having the squatters on the C. P. R. right of way  along the water front moved away  on the ground that the shacks were  unsanitary (and a detriment .to  property owners came up. A petition from a number of residents oh  Water and Front streets was read  urging the council' to move the  squatters and alleging that they  were a menace to the health of citizens and an'eyesore.^ On motion of  aldermen Wilson, and' Arthur, a  committee ,. comprising, aldermen  Wilson and Arthur was appointed  to interview the. government and  C. P. R. agents to urge that action  be'taken at once.  The Kootenay Lake Telephone  Company applied for permission to  place cross arms' and string wires on  the city's electric, light poles, to  prevent further poles being erected.  District superintendent Hodge was  present in'support of the application, which was referred to the  board of works.  A. Porter applied for a position  as street. foreman, enclosing testimonials of merit.' The' city engineer was authorized to _ engage Mr.  Porter when a vacancy occurred. t  The city engineer presented his  report on the electric light dam,  which was briefly as follows: The  crib work of the original dam is  substan tialrbut the newei-portions-  should be replaced and the upper  face thoroughly puddled with clay.  As cleaned out at present the dam  will hold 2,000,000 gallons and run  the plant for _\_- hours. If raised  two feet above the present level it  would store 3,000,000 gallons,' or,  sufficient for _\ hours, and if raised  four' feet it would hold 4,500,000  gallons, sufficient for eight hours'  run. To strengthen the dam and  raised it two feet would cost about  $500 and a four foot raise would  cost $750. The work should be  done by day's labor. Tho engineer  added that" he did not consider the  arrangement of the penstock to be  satisfactory^. '7        ".'.;'.'7 .''.., \ "  Aldermen; Wilson and Arthur  moved that the dam, be raised four,  feet under the direction of the city  engineer.7'' 7.' 7-!;.'-... .;'":���.;."-7" "...

Alderman:Hall   inquired if the  medical health officer had presented  a   report   recently.;.   .. The . query-  caused Dr. Arthur to remark "that  man is .hot doing his duty," after  he   had   stated   that  the    official  under discussion  had   never pre-,  sen ted a complete report, although  he had presented a large bill for,  services rendered.  ' The clerk was instructed to request the medical health officer to  make a report of the last six  months' work.  Mining Records.

The  first >vork to be done consists of  deepening the shaft another 75  feet, at which point it will be tapped  by a 200-foot crosscut tunnel. An  advertisement appears elsewhere  calling for tenders for the doing of  this work. f   Egypt Admirably Governed.  For success in government Egypt  laudably   continues to , be an .excellent object lesson.    For the year  1899 lord Cromer has just reported  a surplus of over $2,000,000 and a  large decrease of the debt. In spite  of the unprecedented failure of the  Nile flood, "the revenue reached the  highest figure yet  recorded since  the British occupation commenced.  In   other  ,days���and not so very  long ago���that little disappointment  in the matter of the^ river would  have meant wholesale famine, and  probably the plague.    Now���notwithstanding the teaching of our  school   geographies���it   is .. merely  .the cause of "temporary inconvenience."   Indeed, the low Nile has  greatly helped the building "of the  ^big storage reservoirs, which have,  in consequence, progressed rapidly  toward completion.    Another encouraging <phase of lord Cromer's  report   is   his    reference    to   the  friendly      relations      established^  with      that      personified     .mystery,     the      emperor      Menelik,  who had   agreed to a  propitious  frontier arrangement. The reorganization of the Soudan seems also to  be going along smoothly, notwithstanding the great difficulties, not  the' least of which are the troubles  consequent upon the land registration, the pleasant dervish custom of  transporting, deporting andexterm-  inating-tribes-having���pretty���well-  confounded the matter of ownership of landed property.

Among the torrents of abuse with  which our continental press critics,  wifch one or two exceptions, have  deluged us since the beginning of  the Boer war, there has been discernible, says the London Mail, one  * element of involuntary admiration  ���grudging and deprecatory, perhaps, bnt still admiration.  lt is nofc our lighting qualities  thn* have extracted this faint  praise; "not the bravery of, our  troops, nor the brilliant tactics of  auy of our generals. The fact thafc  has' commended itself with most  force to our neighbors on the continent is that since October last we  have transported to South Africa,  with scarcely the loss of a single  life, 200,000 meu, thousands of  horses and mules, hundreds- of guns  and many thousands of tons of  munitions, and all this without  putting ourselves very much' oufc of  the way, without any unduo pressure on - our transport service or  dangerous drain on our supplies,  and with comparativelyfew hitches.  In addition -to this great army,  troops have been sent; from Australia, Canada, India and small  contingents from other colonies,  and reliefs from Malta, Crete,  Egypt, etc.���in all a total of about  20,000, which makes the grand to-  -tal���of��� fighting���men^���landed-���in/*-  South Africa well over 200,000.  ' To the total of 30,000 horses sent  from England must be added other  34,000 remounts from Australia,  Argentina aud New Orleans, and  about 10,000 which- went with the  colonial contingents. Of mules,  over 75,000, have been dispatched  from New Orleans, Mediterranean,  Indian and other ports. Thus we  arrive at a total of over 150,000  animals.  The average cost of these horses  and mules (that is of those bought  abroad for remounts) is estimated  at -��15 and ��12 apiece, respectively. The cost of transporting  the men from Bnglaud to South  Africa was about ��14,000,000. "'���'���  These figures, striking as they  are, by no means exhaust the  statistics relating to the. transport,  for, besides the men, horses, mules,  guns, and vehicles detailed above,  there have been sent out eleven  general hospitals,; five stationary  and twenty-seven field hospitals,  and eighteen bearer companies, for  the eare of the wounded. These  have been manned by 470 military  and 360 civilian doctors and surgeons, 530 nurses, 3500 Royal Army  Medical Corps, 500 volunteers, 1200  Sfc. John Ambulance Corps, and 130  militia ambulance corps, all of  whom, not to mention the personnel  of the several large private hospitals, have been carried from England. Two hospital trains and four  hospital ships have been sent from  England, and others have been  made up at the Cape. The weight  of a general hospital and equipment, it may be added, is 412 tons,  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

To deal wifch the postal and telegraphic work 579 telegraphists and  3500 postoffice men have been  shipped to South Africa; The  mails to that part of the w;orld  have, needless to say, been very  largely increased, and on May 19th,  for instance, 313,416 letters, weighing over 7000 pounds, and 131,508  newspaper packets were dispatched -  to the* array, representing 643 bags  out of the total of 679 which made  up the full mail to South Africa on  that occasion.  Finally, to complete the work of  the transports, 536 officers and 10,-  807 non-commissioned officers and  men have been brought back to  England as invalids up to the end  of May.  Truly, in spite of the* faults  which were committed afc the outset of the campaign, .this is a work  of which we may well be proud;  there can be no doubt that it has  done at least as much as our feats  of arms in the field to uphold our  prestige and exhibit our power to  foreign rivals and critics.  IMPERIAL   FIGUREHEAD.  As for the emperor Kwang-Hsu he  has never at any time been more  than a figurehead on the throne, a  puppet in the hands of the astute  dowager empress.  He is a son of the seventh Prince  Chung, of the house of Tuskwang,  and therefore a' nephew of the late  emperor Tung-Chee. Tung-Chee  was completely under the influence  -of-his-mother',-the second slave-wife  of the emperor Hienfung, seventh  monarch in the present dynasty of  Tsing.  It is customary in China for an  emperor to name his successor.  Tung-Chee toward the close of his  short, wild life, named the infant  Kwang-Hsu. This was the empress  dowager's choice. She selected  Kwang-Hsu as the youngest and  silliest of her nephews. She had  ruled her husband, she had ruled  her son, she,means to rule a third  emperor. The edict of last January  pointed to the conclusion that she  was desirous of ruling a fourth, but  from what prince Tuan has shown  of his mettle it seems likely that if  his son ever comes to the throne of  China prince Tuan will be desirous  of doing some ruling on his own  account.  But then ho one. knows that he  and the empress dowager have not  been playing into each other's  hands.  Kwang-Hsu, at all events, has led  a miserable life. He has had no  shadow of authority���not even of  liberty! When he succeeded to the  throne he was only four years old.  From that moment he was a prisoner in the imperial palace at  Pekin. The empress dowager administered the empire and moulded  her nephew's character to suit her  own plans.  Ifc suited her that he should be  sickly, self-indulgent, of feeble will,  given over to gross pleasures, timorous of responsibility, dependent  upon her in everything.  So she bent the twig, and so the  tree grew.   The emperor of China I  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M. LAY, Manager. 'j  was amannikin.    His aunt was the  ruler of the empire.  He has been described as a small,  delicate, intellectual looking youth,  with large black eyes and a' thin^  pale face. - His grand tutor for  many years was Ung Tung Hoo, a  bigoted Chinese mandarin, strongly  opposed to foreigners and western  ways.  His enforced resignation " two  years ago- was-immediately, followed by the proscription and  flight of the leaders of the "Reformers," who- had," prematurely  hailed with satisfaction some indications of imperial intentions to  welcome European civilization.  Kwang Hsu's marriage,in 1889  was the first occasion of fatal variance between the young emperor  and his. aunt, the dowager. He  had chosen the daughter of a high  Manchu 'military officer, but the  empress dowager had already made  a match for him, having chosen  her own niece for  her will prevailed,  submitted.   -''  In the edict by  RASCALS   AND   SAINTS.  the honor, and.  The emperor  which, he appointed prince Tung's son his successor the emperor���assuming that  he really signed it���referred to the  fact that when he was appointed  successor to Tung Chi it was in the  expectation that he would raise up  heirs to that monarch.  "Now because of ill-health. I' am  childless," the edict continued,  "and have found it" necessary to  appoint a successor. Most reluctantly andiafter- much solicitation  on my part the empress dowager  has acceded to my request."-  How Steevens Died.  How George Steevens took enteric  feverat"Eadysmith_no���one_knows7  When the end was clearly approaching the doctor said he  thought he should be told of his  condition. So W. T. Maud, who  nursed him night after night till he  himself became a wreck, broke the  news: "I think, old man," he said,  "we- had better send a telegram to  your .wife. The doctor says you are  not so well to day." "Well," said  Steevens, "you write out a telegram  and I'll censor it." Maud wrote:  ���'Husband not so well; condition  serious." " Steevens took it in his  hand. After a pause���"You mean  I am going to die?" "Well the doctor  says you're a good deal worse."  "Come, if I'm going to die  you'd better tell me." Maud said it  was so. "Soon?" "Yes, not long."  Another pause and then: "What a  strange by-path out of a besieged  city," said Stevens; and added  later: "Send for a bottle of .champagne." .' Maud 7 sent,,.-though, he  knew that a case of whisky had  jusfc brought. -��145 at a guinea  raffle, and poured out a glass for  each of ; them. Steevens drank;  Maud, overcome, sat before his  glass. "Buck up, man, buck up;  drink," said Steevens, and he remained so bright that Maud began  to dohbfc the doctor's verdict and  countermanded the telegrams. At  4:30 p. m. he was still cheerful.  At six he was dead. They buried  him at midnight, for the Boers  shelled the cemetery during the  day, thinking they saw entrenchments being dug: and dark and  rainy as the nighfc proved, the  Boer searchlights were on them as  they laid him in the ground.  At the American institute of instruction meeting at Halifax, the  most interesting feature was an  address on "Rascals and Saints," by  Rev. Dr. A. E. Winship of Boston.  He drew a sharp contrast between  the rascals and saints, regenerate  and degenerate, by presenting, in  brief, two different studies. The  first study" was "that of a family-  known as "fche Jukes," as given by  R. A. Dugdale, in 1878. In the  previous five years he studied * 1200  descendants of" one Max, who was  born about 1720. Max was'a jolly-  good fellow, which-generally means  good for nothing. These 1200 descendants were all paupers, criminals,  imbecile,, insane and licentious.  Only twenty of them ever -learned  a trade,.and.tenjof these learned it  in a state's prison. They cost the  public over $1,250,000.  In opposition to this record the  speaker finally7 .decided upon the  family of Jonathan Edwards, who  was born in 1703. Dr. Winship has  studied about 1500 of his descendants, among whom is not one pauper  or imbecile, only one insane, and  but six criminals. Two hundred  and eighty-three are college presidents, among whom are Wooley  "and the two D wights, Yale's-three  great leaders. In-law and medicine,  in railroading and mining,, in fche  army and,navy,. in literature and  statesmanship, the family has been  at the front. The contrast between  the two families is marvelous.  Nothing is better established  than the fact thafc, left to itself,  heredity is as constant a factor as  gravitation. But it is not our business to leave it alone. The most  vital problem in modern life is the  transformation of Jukes into  Edwards, degenerate to regenerate,  rascals to saints. This transformation must be accomplished by two  forces or conditions���general education and special efforts. The first  lies in the various opportunities  now offered by the universities and  other educational institutions for  the   training of men and women  along-a multitude-of- lines.   As to special efforts, Dr. Winship cited the great accomplishment  of Jacob Riis in New York city, of  Elbert Hubbard at tho Roy croft  shops, and of W. R. George at the  George, Sr., Republic at Treeville,  N. Y.          CHINESE PROVERBS.  If the root be left the grass will  grow again (the reason given for  exterminating a traitor's family.)  The gods cannot help a man who  loses opportunity.  Li Hung Wants a Warship.  St. Petersburg, July 29.���A dispatch has been received from Li  Hung Chang, dated July. 26th,  which says that the Chinese government telegraphs him under date  of July 23rd that the foreign ministers are . all well. - SA_ Hung  Chang also complains that none  of the powers has consented to  place a warship at his disposal for  his journey north, and he added  that he would be compelled to encounter many obstacles by a land:  journey.  A wise man adapts himself to circumstances as water adapts itself  into the vessel fchat contains it.  The error of on.e moment becomes  the sorrow of a lifetime.  Disease may bo cured, but not  destiny.  A vacant mind'- is open to all  suggestion, as the hollow mountain  returns all sounds.  : He who pursues the stag regards  not hares.  ... A wife may not spend her husband's money in thought even,  taking the gowns in gratitude, asking no more. If few she shall not  deport herself in languid demeanour  but shall walk with energy as  though well pleased.  The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected  without trials.  A wise man forgets old grudges.  Riches come better after poverty  than poverty after riches.  A bird can roosfc but on one  branch.  Who swallows quick can chew  but little (applied to learning.)

R. depot, was badly hurt  yesterday. In stepping on the  footboard of the switch locomo-  motive, his foot slipped between  the ties, and the engine forced the  limb over until both bones broke  clean across about six inches above  the ankle. He will be laid up for  several months. Mr. Ogilvie had  ���just returned to duty after recovering from a broken leg.  Rev. H. C. Sutherland, who has  been acting pastor of Sb. Paul's  Presbyterian church during the.  absence of Rev. R. Frew, left yesterday morning for Portland, Oregon, where he will .ioiu Mrs. Sutherland and return to Prince Albert,  N. W. T.. where he takes charge of  a church. Rev. Dr. Duval of Winnipeg, .who will officiate- at St.  Paul's until Mr. Frew's return, arrives here this week.  The first carload of ore for the  smelter arrived yesterday ��� from the  Molly Gibson mine. Further shipments are expected to arrive daily.  Steam has been raised at the smelter, and tne volumes of smoke pouring from the tall stack give an air  of business to the institution.  Rev. Dr. Williams, pastor of the  Great St. James church of Montreal,  known as the Canadian cathedral  of Methodism, will.visit Nelson during August. He is one of the leading Methodist divines in the Dominion.  Miles Barrett, who for several  years occupied the position of foreman at the Hall Mines smelter, is  now at Grand Forks, where he has  accepted the position of foreman at  the Granby smelter. Therer are  few men who know more about  smelting' than does Miles Barrett,  and the friends that he made in  Nelson will rejoice in the turn of  his, fortune which takes him to  Grand Forks as foreman of the  Granby smelter.  Ensign Staiger, who is now in  command of the Salvation Army  corps here, will. give a lecture on  the life of "Billy McLeon, ex-pugilist," illustrated by a series of  stereopticon vieAvs. Adjutant and  Mrs. McGill, late of Skagway, will  arrive on August 7th to take over  the command.  Up to last night at 8 o'clock no  arrangements had been made for  securing bail for E. C. Cordingly.  In the morning judge Forin made  an order for bail, placing the bonds  at $1000 for defendant and another  $1000 in sureties, with an alternative of $2000 cash personal recognizance.  The authorities have not located  John Donovan, the prisoner who  escaped from the jail on. Saturday.  Apparently he was not seen after  leaving the institution.  Lou Preston was released yesterday-morning��� from1- the���provincial-  jail on a ticket of leave, issued by  the secretary of state on the recommendation of the warden. She  had served 10 months on a sentence  of 18 months.

Rifle Match Against Rossland.  Sergeant Phillips of the Nelson  company of the Rocky Mountain  Rangers has received a letter from  captain Forin of the Rossland company accepting the challenge for a  rifle shooting match at Rossland on  Atigust 6bh. The conditions are  seven shots at the 200, 500 and 600  yards range ,witlV- one sighter at  each'range, using the''" service rifle  and ammunition. * -The men will  shoot kneeling" at the' 200 yards  range and prone, -head towards  target, at the other two. The  rival teams will comprise 10 men  apiece, aud the Nelson representatives will probably be the same  that shot in the No. 1 team in the  last league match. The men, however, will be definitely picked at a  meeting to be held at the armoury  on Thursday evening at 8 o'clock.  The marksmen will leave for- Rossland on Sunday night, returning on  Monday afternoon.  ..  British Troops in South Africa.  A Silverton correspondent writes  asking The Tribune "what is' the  greatest number of men that" Great  Britain has ever na'd'in the field in  South Africa' at one time * It is impossible to answer''the- question  with absolute accuracy. It is known,  however, that Great Britain has  sent (including the' colonial contin--  gents) 235,000 men to South Africa.  From this must be deducted the  dead, sick, "bounded and prisoners  and the immense force required to  guard the hundreds of miles of  communications," and to garrison  important points. 'It is fairly certain- than at the outside never more  thau 150,000 men- have" been engaged in active'field''operations at  the same time in South Africa.
