 '-7:  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH' YEAR.  WEEKLY EDITION 6Y MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  -^;rs-*S*lt;  ^�����������-_$fr  BRITISH  ELECTIONS  NEAR  r Imperial Politics.  New York,   August 5.���In bis  Londou cable letter to this morning's   Tribune Mr. Ford discusses  the political  issues in conjunction  witli tho South African war as follows:    The signs and  importance  of the present discussion are multiplied as the  wearisome session of  parliament draws to a close.   The  general elections have not been ordered and the party whips. do not  know when the government will go  to the country.    But nobody in the  commons expects the present -parliament will meet again after its  -rising-next week.  . General Hunter's success in   cap-  L     turiug tho bulk of Prinsloo's  force  ��� ���      and the increasing probability that  the Dewet, Olivier and Botha commandoes will speedily be compelled  to abandon the struggle are bringing   the- -general   -election..within  sight.     The closing scenes of the  sessions are little better than electioneering devices.    Mr. Chamberlain is so eager for the fray that he  is with difficulty kept   under restraint.   His face was a fine study  last night when he was discussing  the hypothetical question whether  letters from members of parliament  in   the   budget of correspondence  captured    at    Bloemfontein   were  treasonable or not, charitably giving them the benefit of the  doubt.  MtC Balfour's pale, intellectual face  also lighted up with pleasureable  excitement when he offered the op-  ",- position a chance for continuing the  ���discussion of South" African affairs  ancl found himself confronted with  empty bencher.   Sir Henry Campbell Bannermau and other Liberal  chiefs having run away and Mr.  Bryce being left in splendid isolation to speak for himself and not  for her majesty's opposition;  The   hoarse   shout, of .derision  raised by the opposition" when :_\Sv.  Chamberlain announced ��� that there  had* not been any   secret  "corres-  .pondence, between    himself    and  ..Cecil   Rhodes- had a. note of.'elec-  .  tioneering, and sir ..-William Har-  eourrts    rattling, .speech..-,<on   the  ���lnat#al ProP��sals ��f the minister  and the- war policy was a proof that  the veteran' was aware   that  the  elections were close at hand.  ,    - The, session- of   parliament    of  which the sands are. now running  out has been one of considerable  legislative    industry.       No    large  measures have been  enacted, but  many small bills of general utility,  and at least two acts of special interest to the mercantile world have  cbeen   passed.    The   record  of the  unionist parliament since 1895 in  business done has been creditable  and something ,will be heard of it  when the elections come on.    The  idea   that   the   canvas will   bo  a  khaki campaign, with all the issues  except South Africa excluded from  ��� it, is grotesque.-   ''"'���'  _t  The real issue of the canvass will  oe imperialism,' as   illustrated  by  the loyalty of the_,colonies in tlio  great" battle for the united empire  by the confederation of Australia,  to be followed by the confederation  of South Africa and by the  comprehensive     policy      of'   the  strengthening of the resources of  the world-wide realm for common  defence   and   for   developing   the  . most   intimate   relations   between  the other countries and 'her dependencies.   Mr. Chamberlain will present    these   policies    with > more  authority than any other Unionist  leader.   He will not talk about old  .age pensions and Tory democracy,  but about a new and 'rational imperialism, and when the-elections  have ended he will have to be reckoned with in any scheme for. the  reorganization of the ministry.  Sir William Harcourt has shown  this week by his invective against  exaggerated and fantastic imperialism his own fitness for leading the  Liberal party during the: campaign  against Mr. Chamberlain, but there  is no truce between the factions,  and sir Henry Bannermau is  the  the only possible compromise candidate who will be accepted by the  imperialists and Little Englanders  .and extreme-radicals. ���'���:���  the affray numerous   ..  were found on the street  vicinity containing two verses of  poetry urging the workingman to  be free, to throw off the yoke of  bondage and fight for liberty and  to lay down their lives if necessary  to overthrow the government and  attain freedom.   The card bore the  heading:     "Workingmen   emancipate yourselves."    The   police assert that these cards were printed  in San Eiaucisco and were received  here by the anarchists several days  ago and have   been   secretly distributed.  + ��__?��.

London, August 0;���4 a. m.���The  American and British forces began  the advance on Pekin last Thursday, according to a dispatch dated  August 2nd from Tien-Tsin to the  Daily Express.

Washington, August 5.���A belated message from minister Conger  PEICE FIVE CENTS  ALARMED BY ANARCHISTS  Extraordinary Police Precautions.  _ ���������_.j  in the light of recent events and its  treatment is- made a prominent  subject, by Isaac N. Ford in his  London cable letter to this morning's Tribune. He says in this connection:  "The abandonment of the shah's,  visit to England and the extraordinary precautions  taken  by the  police here and on the continent  for   insuring   the   safety   of   the  prince of Wales and duke of York  have   strengthened     the    feeling  among well-informed men that systematical   international    measures  against tho anarchists are necessary  when English princes cannot attend  the funeral of a near relative without having the route changed at  the last moment, and the journey  ordered with the utmost secrecy,  and when an Asiatic sovereign is in  greater   peril  of   assassination- - in  Paris and England than he would  be in his<!own realm, the hidden intrigues of anarchists become a menace,' which requires  extraordinary  safeguards. ���  The English police have methods  of its own for regulating anarchists.  It keeps them under constant surveillance in London and other cities  and. ,without doubt employs." spies  wlio join secret'societies'for the  purpose of ,'betrayjng conspirators  against   rulers  arid   governments.  For" this "reason London is probably  ���the - .-last,,. placej/jwhere, any. plot  against, "the   European'.sovereigns  would be formed,because the police  spies are- dreaded, while it is also  true   that   men   like. Sir Edward  Bradford and Dr. Anderson have  better knowledge of the anarchists  than any other police officials in  Europe" and their success in thwarting their designs by secret espionage compels   these  miscreants   to  choose a remote base of operations  like New Jersey for arranging their  conspiracies.  Sipido's acquittal and  the plot against the shah  by au  anarchist who has already served  two sentences in prison illustrate  thefeebleness of the "ordinary processes of law in restraining criminals of-this class and the. danger of  the-situation ,is' increased by the  tendencies of sensational crime and  the prevalance - of unrevealed lunacy.  ^^SeveraLthoughtful-letters-from  medical experts and criminal law  forced, The Japanese reconnaisance  yesterday apparently inclined them  to favor waiting for further reinforcements. ' The Russians and  French acquiesced. General- Gasel-  lee -is anxious, to advauce, but.his  command is so/;smalI, only 3,000,  that he cannot take the * lead. The  date for the departure of the ex  pedition is therefore  certain  again   un-  yers have appeared in print respecting the most effective   method of  dealing with the common'enemies of  all governments.   The most striking  suggestion is that membership in  an anarchist society should be regarded as prima facia proof of insanity and justification for a medical inquiry.   The advocates of this  method contend that police espionage   only  compels   anarchists   to  abandon cities. like London, Paris,  Berlin, Vienna or, Rome where the  presence of spies ��� is suspected -in  every secret group and that -.there  is no safeguard against - crimes like  that at Monsea, which was ordered  in America.  They favor action by which men  professing to be anarchists and to  sympathize in the murder of rulers  shall be adjudged lunatics and committed to insane asylums, simply on  the declaration, of their ' own  opinions and without evidence of  complicity in any crime or plot;  20,000 Japanese un  der     general     Yamuchuchi,    and  10,000 Russians.    The British force  totals 9000 and the other foreign  troops about  7000.    We are weak  in artillery.       On   August  1st a  small force of Chinese from the native city attacked Tien-Tsin.   By a  series   of    brilliant    charges    our  troops drove the enemy from their  positions.   The native city is still  defiant, and the allies are unwilling to march troops through its.  streets, as,this would-mean an im-*  mense slaughter.   When the  Chi-V  nese   saw large   bodies of   troops  marching   westward   they   apparently believed they would have an  easy victory over those .who were  left. J  A message to the same paper from  a   correspondent   in   Pekin   dated  July   22,   says:   The women have  borne all the horrors with marvellous fortitude and then with cheerfulness.   The Chinese wanted peace  when the arsenals at Tien-Tsin were  captured and the negotiations bade  fair to be successful. Unfortunately  Li Pmg Hing.and Kang Yu-arrived  here   at the critical moment and  overthrew /the,: peace party.   Food  has been short but not terribly so,  though we had to be very careful.'  A Shanghai special,dated,A.ugiist  4,-says: , The first overt attack upon  foreigners   occurred this- morning.  Three Chinese soldiers in disguise  fired at a well known' EnglishJ resi-  dentrwhile he Was lying asleep"' on  the verandah of his house._ He had  a narrow   escape.     From   various  sources   come   statements   that   a  large   body   of Boxers, some, estimating them at 3,000, is gathering  south of Tien-Tsin and threatening  communications.  The Shang-Hai correspondent of  the Daily Mail reports the reception  of. an imperial edict dated August  2   ordering" general   Yung Lu to  select high military and civil digni-  .taries,   together wifch a   sufficient  number of picked* troops, to escort  the foreign" ministers to Tien-Tsin  as soon as they decide to leave Pekin.     By the terms of the edict  general Lu will be personally responsible for their safety and he is  given full authority to deal summarily   with   those opposing the  peaceful passage of the escort. "By  such acts," concludes thn f-dicr, "do  Commenting ".upon the dispatch  the Times says':"/.'It .is' perhaps 'inevitable,' although undoubtedly disappointing, that theadvance should  be delayed. ' It will be noted that  the dispatch to" the Daily' Express  announcing - that   the   troops, had"  started is dated two days later than  the dispatch to tiie Time's, and two  days later than any/dispatch published in London.

Li   Ping   Hing   has impeached Li  Hung Chang, Li Kun Yi, viceroy of  Nankin, and others on the charge  of maintaining relations with foreigners.       I  A Tien-Tsin dispatch of August  1st to Berlin gives a report of an  imperial dispatch dated August 1st,  giving the capture of Taku and  Tien-Tsin by troops from Shan  Tung and the south. Detailed accounts of the reconnaissance of  July 30th say that the enemy's  guns that were attacked near Pei  Tsang, it is believed can only be  captured -after a .':; hard struggle.  General Gasellee and' his staff accompanied the reconnaissance but  no British troops were engaged.  London, August 6.���A dispatch  to the Morning Post from Che-Foo  dated July 30th, says:    The Russians at Tien-Tsin refuse to allow  Americans   to   put   up   telephone  wires on the railroad poles and they  claim   the   railroad,   with ..English  engineers is  ready to work.   The  situation is critical.    The river is  full of railroad sleepers.   Hundreds  of dead bodies of Chinese, some decapitated,    are   floating    in    the  stream.    Four more  Results of Saturday's Rifle Match.  The rifle match at the ranges on  Saturday   was   won by the East  ward team  which secured a small  majority over the marksmen from  the western district. '   The contest  was keen and .the issue in doubt up  to the last moment*-*No phenome nal  scores were made/but a glance at  the score indicates that the shooting was   uniformly good, and the  teams closly matched.    Folio wing  Adee, acting secretary Of state, later/ iri the day issued the following'statement concerning, it:    Consul-general Goodnow in a cablegram dated Shang-  Hai,     August    5th,    which    was  received at the department of state  jitjLo'cloijk^this, Sunday morning  reports the receipt by consul Rags-  dale at Tien-Tsin of messages from j  minister Conger and the secretary  of the legation, Mr. Squires, dated  July 21st, to 'the following effect :  All well. No fighting since the 16th  by agreement.   Enough provisions.  .Hope for a speedy relief."  ���    Mr.   Goodnow   adds    that    the  director of Yosts, Sheng, had on  the fifth communicated to him an  imperial edict dated July 30, ordering Jung Lu to provide an escort  for the ministers to Tien-Tsin, when  the ministers set the date.    While  the   messages' from    Conger',v?and'  Squires 7bear date of July 21 the  belief founded not only upon them  but also upon collateral and later  information is that the legationers  are yet safe from at least immediate harm.   At present there is no  means- - of   knowing   whether   the  minister will accept   the   offer of  the   Chinese imperial government  to�� provide - an escort for them to  'Tien-Tsin, but it is surmised they  will .prefer to remain within, the  British legation at Pekin until" the  arrival   of   allied    forces. -It   is  thought to be not unlikely that the  Chinese government may be be very  insistent upon the departure of the  ministers .in the hope if.-they ,can  be gotten to Tien-Tsin in-safety the  storming "of Pekin may' be averted.  -'TheVstate ."department -has''taken  Li Ping Heug I 'the ground that the dispatch from  ���alr-if t.iw��i *�� I the Tsung li yamen delivered atthe  department yesterday by minister  'Wu is not an answer to the dispatch of   secretary   Hay   sent on  August 1st.    In that dispatch secretary Hay finally and decisively  insisted   that free communication  with'the ministers' must be established before any steps would be  taken by this govern ment'to ward a  peaceful solution   of   the   present  trouble.

As of  that date it had already beencom-  janinicated to the_department^by-  consul Fowler.*   Obviously, therefore, it could not be a reply to the  dispatch sent to Mr. Goodnow by  secretary Hay on August 1st.   A  definite reply to the secretary's dispatch of the first instant is awaited  with   some    concern,   not   to   say  anxiety.    It is the final word of the  United States government in the  pending negotiations.  The demand  must be acceded to if trouble of a  serious character is to be averted.

Trail, August  4.���Mr.  McGillivray of Toronto, one of the directors of the Canada Mutual Mining  &    Development    Company   that  owns   the   Little   Giant  group of  claims    on     Lookout    mountain,  which has been bonded to a Glasgow: syndicate, visited last Saturday the work now being done by  the   Scottish   company.      He  expresses       great        pleasure       at  the    thorough    way    in    which  the   work is being   done   by Mr.  Brazil,   superintendent,    and    the  seven men working with him.   He  thinks the indications very promising.   Mr. MacGillivray was satisfied  with the result of his visit.  No Direct Word.  Cape Town, August 5.���The  United States consulate here has  received no direct communication  regarding the Boer attack upon the  train carrying United States consul  Stowe.  foreigners would become desperate  during the interval between her retirement and the arrival of a relief  column. Whatever may be the  risks and dangers of military advance from Tien-Tsin, every English journal is convinced there is no  alternative and the principle of the'  inviolability of the ministers must  be upheld at all hazards, even if the  legations aire placed in imminent  peril after their brave defence.  There is entire unanimity here  respecting the* necessity for an advance. Asiatic sovereigns cannot  be left at liberty to commit any atrocity or crime and then hold the  ministers or consuls or missionaries  as hostages until they have settled  the bill of damages and reparation  on their own terms.     ���  Another message from sir Claude  MacDonald has reached Tien-Tsin,  being virtually a duplicate of the  previous dispatch of July 21st and  bear evidence, of being submitted  to the empress, officials since important details of the situation are  suppressed.  The Russian government has official information of the successful  attack of two columnsupon Chinese  troops and the capture of Sakhalin  on the Amur river.   This victory ia  described as a decisive one.    Veterans of the Chinese service are disposed to believe that the Boxers revolt will be at an end in the north  as well as in the south if the Tien-  Tsin  column can be  pushed  into  Pekin in time to save the legations." -"  League Games.

The staff  may be increased as the result of  Mr. William's inspection. Mr. Williams is just in from the Knob Hill  and Ironsides properties where the  syndicate have been shipping 150  tons of ore daily for a short time to  the Granby smelter. The shipments are to be substantially increased when the smelter is ready  to handle the material. The big  flume from the dam, on the north  fork of Kettle river, built by the  smelter for power purposes, was  opened on Saturday and if the trial  is satisfactory the smelter will be  operated to its full capacity at  once, The ore bins at the Knob  Hill and Ironsides contain over  8000 tons of oro and the stopes are  full, so that the smelter will have.a  continuous supply of ore from its  own properties�� for some time at  least.

It was discovered in the lower tunnel. Drewery also brings news of a fine strike  on the Sunset, which property he  bonded for his company a short  time since.

In answer  to a question inthe legislature the  attorney-general-has-stated���that-  one of the three justices is interested in one of the canneries, while-  another was employed as foreman  in one of the canneries. They were  in a measure parties to the dispute,  but they got the troops out just the.  same.   Ralph Smith's resolution, drawing the attention of the government  ' to the necessity for providing more  efficient means for effecting settlements in: labor disputes has been  variously received in the legislature.  That the. Victoria Colonist should  throw cold water upon the project  was to be expected, but that Joseph  Martin should go out of his way, to  say that the discussion ofisuch a  resolution was a waste of time, will  doubtless come as a: surprise to such  as do not know the ex-premser.   It  bears out the conviction that Martin has not the same all-consuming  sympathy,for the wage-earner now  that he had; prior, to the recent elections.'- :V/;_^__________ ;'  Visit of Yolen Williams.

The Orford Copper Company is  making arrangements for  further  treating   the   copper-nickel     ores  raised by the Canada Copper Company from the mines in Sudbury.  Heretofore the ore was reduced- to  matte at Sudbury and sent to Constable    Hook,    New    Jersey,   for  further treatment, but the Orford  Company   now   proposes   to erect  machinery at Copper Cliff, calcining   the   matte.     Every effort  is  being   made   to rush   on the construction, and machinery is being  taken   in    from ��� Europe.   United  States,, and Canada, and it is anticipated that the plant will be in  operation this fall.   Fifty men or  more will find employment^in the.  calcine works.   Three weeks ago V.  Hybrinette, manager of the Orford  Company, visited Sudbury and approved of the scheme Mr.  Moffatt  _of_the Orford Mining Company_is  in   charge.     Calcining    is   but   a  small step towards reduction, but  this move of the company is looked  upon as the first step towards the  erection of complete copper works  .in Canada.  MOM TO LOAI  .

STRENGTH OF THE CHINESE  By General Corbin."  As events now occuring iu China  are engrossing the attention of the  civilized world, some account of the  Chinese army, of tho forces the  powers can briug agaiust them and  of the operations likely to take  place will be of interest. Telegraphic reports from. China have  been^o meager and so confusing  that, before proceeding further, it  ���will not, perhaps, be out of place to  give a brief synopsis of what has  occurred up to date.  On May 31st there were at Taku  seven . Russian, ono French, two  British and one Italian warships,  all of which landed detachments of>  sailors aud marines; other ships  afterwards arrived, and on June Ofch  the number, of ships- had bpen increased to .twenty-three, two of  wliich were American. Meanwhile,  detachments of various nationalities  ' had been sent into Peking to guard  the legations. The troops when  landed, proceeded to take possession  of and repair the railroad. June  10th a force of about 2000 men under admiral Seymour left Tien Tsin  for Peking..  Arriving about forty  "miles from the capital, it was found  that the railroad had been destroyed, and that further progress would  have to be made by marching. For  some time nothing was heard from  this column. On June 17th the  Taku forts at the mouth of the Pei  Ho river were attacked and captured. On June 21st an attack on  Tien Tsin began, and it was neces-  ary to send a force to its relief.  The first detachment, consisting of  about 400 Russians and 130 American marines, under major Walker,  met with serious resistance and  were in great danger until reinforced by about 1000 British troops.  The rest of the relieving force arriving, an entrance into Tien, Tsin,  which had been held by about 3000  men, principally Russians, was  effected on June 23rd. It was then  learned that Seymour's column not  only had been unable to do anything for th'e relief of Peking, but,  after hard fighting against greatly  superior forces, had been compelled  to withdraw and had intrenched  near Tien Tsin. June 25th 2000  men went from Tien Tsin to Seymour's relief. The arsenal was destroyed and the whole force returned to Tien Tsin. In the early part  of the troubles the Boxers had been  opposed by Chinese troops, but  afterward the latter joined the  Boxers, and in the recent fighting  their forces have been combined.  While the news of the assassination  of the German minister and of the  massacre of all foreigners in Peking  is agitating the civilized world, the  combined forces of the powers are  at present at Tien Tsin and Taku  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Branches in London (England) New York,  Chicago, and all tho principal cities in Canada.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on' Skaguay, IT. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  and unable,* with their present  strength; to make a forward movement.  According to the latest reliable  authorities about all the. organized^  and drilled   Chinese troops  to be  counted upon in the present operations are as follows:  Approximate  strength.  Genoral Sung's corps 10,000  -    ��� . 7,000  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. Hay, Inspector.  Soon Cing's corps.  Tung Fuaiang's corps (now operating  near Poking)   General Nieli's corps (now operating  near Tien Tsin  ...10,000  ...K(,000  IIu Shong corps '.  ��,000  Pokin field force 10,000  Division of guards 10,000  The last three, corps of these  troops are drawn from the Manchu  bannermen. There are other troops  more or less well organized and  drilled in different provinces, but  they need not be considered as a  factor in the present operations.  The governor of Shan Tung is said*  to have a corps of about 15,000  troops, drilled according'to,German  methods. The value of the Boxers  as a fighting force against organized  European troops is an unknown  .quantity, but is not thought to be  great.  In regard to the use of the navies  of the powers, their effectiveness  depends upon two things���the use  of their ships and tlieir capacity to  furnish men for duty ashore. Active operations will be entirely on  land. Gunboats of light draught  ���will be useful in river work, not,  only on the Pei-Ho, but near treaty  ports in other parts of China where  protection may -be needed. The  larger ships, particularly the battleships, will be useless except to furnish-landing parties.  It is' not certain within what  limits active operations on shore  will be confined. China is not a  homogeneous nation. As a rule the  people of oue province know little  of and care little for what is occuring in a distant province. Each is  governed by a viceroy or governor,  who, though appointed by the central government, is almost entirely  independent of it, and is practically  a king within his own dominions.  He raises and maintains an army of  the kind and of the size he wishes  aud that he is able to pay for. Up  to the present time the troubles  have'beeu confined to the province  of Chihli, in whicli Peking and Tien  Tsin are situated, and tho province  of Shangtung. If tho troubles continue to be confined to these provinces, the theater of operations will  be much restricted. Tien-Tsin will  probably be the base of operations  and Peking the objective. With  Peking in the hands of the powers,  the rest of the work will be a matter  for diplomatists.  It is considered by well-informed  people that a force of 60,000 or .70,-  000 men will be ample. The number required will vary with the  composition of the force. A compact, homogeneous body, of one  nationality, would be much more  efficient than a composite force of  the same strength, made up of the  contingents furnished by the  powers, no matter how good the  quality of each contingent might  be. History teaches that in the  Operations of allies, friction, jealousies and diversity of purpose obtain. From a purely military  standpoint, leaving political consideration aside, it would be by all  odds most advisable to intrust the  work to a Japanese army, as Japan,  Nelson Branch���Bums Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M. LAY, Manager.  by reason of. her proximity, can put  in the field, better than any other  nation, the necessary number of  troops, and a thorough previous understanding of the combined -European powers with Japan as to payment for her services should prevent any possibility of political  complications.  The queston of the organization  and, composition of the army being  settled, the only remaining question  is the character of the operations  and the difficulties to be overcome.  This is the "worst time of the year  for military operations in-that region. The rainy- season is about  beginning. The country is low and  flat and has no metaled, roads. The  Pei-Ho river, with its branches, is  shallow and tortuous. In the rainy  season it overflows its banks, and,  as there is nothing to indicate the  channel, ite value for- transportation of troops and supplies is small.  The principal.difficulties to be overcome are, therefore, those connected  with transportation and supply.  As the column advances,, detachments must be left to keep open  communications and hold the places  taken. On arriving before Peking  a siege might be necessary. The  city is surrounded by a wall forty  feet thick, faced inside and out with  brick and stone from one to two  feet thick, and this in turn by a  moat fifty feet wide. A flat space  about 100 feet wide, lies between,  the wall and the moat. Peking is  dependent for its supplies from the  outside. It" has immense granaries,  but these are outside the walls and  could be captured. If the'Chinese  contemplate, determined resistance  and their operations are conducted  with ability, the capture of the city  would be no easy matter, as the'  -time-before-aninve'stment_could"be  made could be employed in provisioning the walled city.  LARDEAUS   PROMISING-   MINES.  Lardeau Eagle.  Arthur Evans and Lorenzo Wis-  ener have returned from the Fish  River camp, where they have just  finished assessment work on their  property, the Revenge and Chamberlain, located at the head of  Sable creek, some seven miles from  Camborne. A 12-foot open cut on  the Revenge and a 10-foot on the  Chamberlain has exposed a large  body of clean $100 ore in, both  cases. These properties could commence shipping ore at any time if  the owners were in a position to do  so, and means of transportation  were provided. Evans and Wisener  have also represented the Sundown,  a property adjoining the Double  Eagle, company's Trilby group, in  which they hold an interest with  the company. They exposed 12  inches of clean ore and carbonates.  They report considerable mining  activity in the Fish river camp this  season. Nearly 200 men are working, properties are changing hands  almost daily, trails are being built  and repaired, and a good deal of  ore will be ready for shipment by  the time the rawinding season has  arrived.  Superintendent Shannon was at  the Rob Roy last week, and reports  progress being made by contractor  Bigger. The tunnel on the lead in  the upper workings is in ore and  several tons of fine looking galena  is now piled on the dump, average  samples of which Mr. Shannon has  forwarded to A. E. Welch, managing director, London, Ontario. As  soon as the contractors reach the  other wall and get in under the big  :surface showing, they will drift  both ways a short distance and  then sink a shaft 30 or 40 feet, thus  following the ore and obtaining the  ��� exact trend of the lead. When  this is completed another tunnel  will be driven in about 100 feet  lower down; then upraise to catch  the upper workings. In this way  the company will work down to the  long base tunnel., And once the  two points are connected stoping  will be accomplished at a great  saving in both time and money.  The Rob Roy- will .then have more  depth than any other property in  the Lardeau, 7 some 500 feet, the  Silver Cup having only about 375  feet, but the Rob Roy is one of the  easiest tunneling propositions in  the camp.   Municipal Indebtedness.  , Toronto Globe.  A municipality, like an individual,  can always see many excellent opportunities for the investment of  money, but the former is much less  likely to appreciate the fact that it  has gone as far as the safety or  profit line in investments, and  should go no further' until it has  realized on former outlays. ��� TJie  facility Avith which a municipality  can go into debt'is apt to obscure  this truth. It is often obvious  that a certain expenditure will increase the value of some municipal  property. But it is not so obvious,  though quite as true, that the expenditure contemplated must  lessen the value of all other municipal property. Every addition to  the debt of a municipality lessens  ,the purchases in the stores, lessens  the demandf or'manufactured goods,  and depresses proportionately every  line of business. It is not the  average burden, but the total burden, that, falls on ��� the productive  activities of the-,-municipality. If  all the customers of a certain merchant should make a slight reduction-in their weekly purchases it  might ruin his business. The average reduction-might-be-slight,-but  the aggregate enormous. And if  ithis general reduction in purchases  is due to taxation through excessive  , municipal debt, the burden may be  ;sufficient to turn the balance between progress and retrogression.  The Source of the Zambesi.  The expedition under major Colin  Harding, acting British resident of  Barotseland, to explore the upper  reaches of the Zambesi and its tributaries, has been successful. It  had its own troubles, however. Two  , of the boats capsized, leaving the  party without' meat and short of  ammunition in- a not too friendly  country. Being unable to shoot  game, they were compelled to subsist on mango and manioc. Leaving the boats at  this   point, the  [ party proceeded on foot up the left  bank of the river, their progress  being impeded by. heavy rains,  treacherous bogp, and the necessity  of'obtaining food from the natives.  At length a plateau was reached at  an elevation of 4,950 feet. Here,  under the shadow, of gigantic leafy  trees, the explorers were overjoyed  to discover seven .bubbling springs,  which uniting formed the source of  the mighty Zambesi river on its  course of 1200 miles through Africa.   ���_.  Hero of; Humble War.  With South Africa and China  claiming attention, the heroes of  humbler wars may be' forgotten.  Captain E. P. Roupell, belonging to  the Milford Hayen division of the  militia engineers, arrived at Plymouth last week from the west  coast of Africa^ quite crippled in  both hands, the result of his' heroism while commanding the advanced guard 'of colonel Carter's  Kumasi relief force on June- 6th.  The Maxim with them became jammed ; while the only gunner having  been killed, captain Roupell had to  work it himself. Shot first in the  right hand, captain Roupell worked  the Maxim with his left until another shot broke that wrist as well.  He then instructed his black soldiers how-to work the gun; and he  himself carried ammunition. Finally he was hit twice in the head  and fell, having been struck by no  fewer than seven shots.

Dr. Duval, pastor of Knox  church, "Winnipeg, arrived in Nelson on Saturday to take charge of  St. Paul's Presbyterian church until the pastor's return. He occupied the pulpit for the first time  last night. Dr. Duval is registered  at the Hotel Pliair.  The major portion of the track-  laying outfit for the Balfour extension is on the ground at Procter,  and the track gang is at work making switches and sidetracks to handle plant and material. A long  string of cars loaded with steel for  the extension is on the track at  Nelson awaiting the completion of  the material yard at Procter.  The complete set of 80 stamps at  the Ymir mill is now in operation,  and the recent addition to ��� the  plant is giving perfect satisfaction.  When the additional 40 stamps  were installed advantage was taken  of the opportunity to give the original outfit the thorough overhauling necessary after eighteen  months' steady work. This has  just been completed and the entire  80 stamps are now working.  Ernest Chenoweth, the eight-  year old Jad who killed a Chinaman  at Rossland recently, is confined iu  the provincial jail here awaiting  his trial on the charge of murder.  The0 boy's *'mother employed a  young Chinaman about the house.  The lad said the celestial laughed  at him, for which he blew the servant's brains out with a shotgun.  The Rossland police did not unravel the shooting until a Pinker-  tou detective arrived on the  ground. Young Chenoweth was  then arrested. At the police station he made a confession in the  sweatbox. At the preliminary  hearing it was argued that the confession could not be used in evidence, and the magistrate referred  the point to the attorney-general,  releasing the boy pending a reply.  On Saturday morning constable  Raymer brought young Chenoweth  to the Nelson jail, wheie he is held  on the charge of murder. The lad  is locked up with young Maslonka,  who is only a year or two older.  The alleged boy murderer is precocious and decidedly cheeky to the  keepers at the jail, and apparently  quite oblivious of the terrible crime  laid at his door.  The trial of E. C. Cordingly on  the charge of arson will not take  place this morning as originally intended. The attorney-general's department has not retained counsel  for the crown, and the summons  for the witnesses are not yet issued.  It is, probable that the trial will  not eventuate till the end of the  week as it is understood the crown  will request several days more to,  arrange its case. ^ ' '" "  David McBeath returned yesterday from Sault Ste Marie, where he  has been for several weeks in con-  nection with contracts for the  -Algoma-Central'railroadr   Harry G.

London office expenses were ��1288,  and expenditure in British Columbia ��2880, leaving a profit of ��1007.  The directors have written off for  depreciations ��341, making the net  profit for the year, ��720. There  was brought forward from last year  a balance of ��1519, out of which  was paid income tax on profits  earned to inarch 31,1890, ��318 leaving a balance to credit of general  recount of ��1928. The directors  propose to write,off development  ��1500, leaving a balauce to be carried forward of ��12J3. ',.'.  The directors report that, owing  to the strike in the Slocan district,  lasting for nearly ten months, aative  mining operations were almost at a  standstill,   and   consequently   the  output of ore was very limited, being only   1055 tons,  as compared  with 3337 tons last year. The strike  has happily now been ended, and  operations have now been resumed.  The directors venture to think that,  taking into consideration this long  period of enforced idleness, the result cannot be considered unsatisfactory, as they have been able to  m-iet all expenses and carry forward a small balance.   It is also  satisfactory to note that the cost of  mining has been reduced from ��3  6d. 8d to ��3 2s. lOd. per ton, and  the average profit���; has   increased  from ��4 lis. to ��5 Is* per ton.  In view of the fact that the strike  prevented full working of the mine  for a considerable period the directors have waived their fees for the  five months from November 1,1899,  to March 31,1900.
