 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  7^V:-;!7:7^��^%|  ���'~.'\J-'.^.;'~"^_-''^f  '���������tt-ss^as^^l  7 i'7 ;7SlSr5ill  WEEKLY; EPITION BY IMAIL^  y TWO DOl!liARS AfYEARi  yfiif&M  mm  "Ml  EIGHTH YEAR  KELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING AUGUST 7 J 900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  A  REPORT THAT Ll SUICIDED  j ., Chinese War Eumors.  Washington, August 0.���The au-  t nouncement received through rear  ��admiral Remey aud commander  Taussig, of reported heavy fighting  on the river beyond Tien-Tsin, was  the only news of interest in the  Chinese situation. Little doubt  was expiessed at the navy department that the news was substantially correct. It is probable a  later report may reduce the list of  casualties among the international  forces, but it is evident , that the  move on Pekiu is -at- last   fairly-  under way, and that strong opposition   has been encountered.    The  war department officials who have  ,      been reticent-for several days as to  news from the seat of war admitted  today when the "naval dispatches  were received, that the announcement of battle was not unexpected.  Opinions among various  officials  now in Washington is somewhat  divided as to just what is presaged  by    today's   events.'     The    more  optimistic are inclined to think that  such a severe blow as the Chinese  must have received at Pei Tsang,  will result in a speedy disintegra^  tion of' the force now opposing the  march of the international column.  In line with this prediction it was  .prophesied that the Chinese government would find means to send  tlio   ministers   from   Pekin tinder  escort, and thus stave off the advance upon "the capital.     On the  other hand, a number of officers inL  a position  to judge equally well,  hold that the fight at Pei Tsang  was only the beginning of a strenuous resistance, that would be continued to the gates of Pekin or beyond.     It was urged in support of  this view that the Chinese had a  hundred men to lose against one_of  the allies, that they wero well armed with modern guns and had apparently an'abundauce of ammunition.  It is stated that much apprehen-  : siori exists, among those conversant  with   oriental-affairs,* at'the' re-  ' - appearance in P*ekin politics of that  ...rabid. and anti-foreign fanatic, Li  '   Ping Heng,    It is  understood  that  his   appearance   in   Pekin   affairs  iiv*v   have   had.'something to do  ���wihh the Shang-Hai rumors of Li  "   ;Hung Chang's suicide.    It is certain  "that.with Li Ping Heug and-prince  Tuan in control of the de facto government in China, sa religious war  - of dervish-like fanaticism probably  will be waged against all foreigners,  and friends of the more liberal Chinese   statesmen    are    exceedingly  anxious as to their fate under the  Tuan-Li regime.  , The war department is in receipt  of a dispatch from general Mc-  ��� Arthur announcing that he has  shipped additional artillery supplies, to Taku for use in the Chinese.  campaign. These supplies include  several gatling guns and the remainder of rifle and howitzer siege  trains from Manila, which up to  - date_has_reinained-~useless-in���the  Philippines on account of the bad  roads. How much better general  . Chaffee may be able to handle the  siege guns, through the almost impassable rice swamps of China, no  one at the war department was  Avilling to guess, but his recent dispatch contained an urgent appeal  for   more   artillery,    and    he   is  getting it.  \, Experts at the war. department  say that if it came to. a boinbard-  meut of Pekin these five-inch rifles  . and seven-inch Howitzers, with  their enormous bursting charges of  high explosives will be the most  effective battering weapons in the  international column. ��� 7  Minister W" left Washington on  Saturday for Cape May, and remained away from Washington today, although he had been expected  to return Sunday night.  Montreal Suffered Defeat.  Montreal, August 6.���The Nationals surprised the world yesterday by defeating Montreal' five  goals to one. All was done by improvement  in   the   French   club's  i homo. The two defences were  ���about equal, i and the Nationals  slightly superior in the field. The  great difference was in home. The  Nationals   were    always    on    tha  Taggressive, and at once made for  the flags, while the r Montrealers  caught and passed poorly and were  afraid to run in to the goals.  Train Held Up.  Salina, Kansas, August 0.���-The  Union Pacific eastbound passenger  -train No. A, which left Denver last  night was held up by men several  miles west of Hugo, Colorado, 90  miles this side of Denver.- The passengers in the Pullman sleepers  were robbed of their money aud  valuables. An old man named Fay,  of California, refused to surrender  Jiis valuables and fired a shot at  one of the robbers but missed,  thereupon the robers fired, one shot  entering Fay's mouth and coming  out at the back of his nead killing  him almost instantly. The robbers  stopped the train, jumped off and  escaped.  NEWS THA TIS NOT CREDITED  It Comes From Li.  ' London, August 7.���The advance  of the allied forces commenced today, cables the British consul at  Tien-Tsin, under date of August  4th. This is the first official information received here that the  attempt to relieve Pekin has begun.  It is accepted as correct. The  British consul does not mention  any fighting.  Yesterday the Chinese minister,  sir Chi Chen Lo Feng Luh, com-,  munieated to lord Salisbury a message from tbe, tsung li yamen, dated  July *31st, reiterating the statement  that the ministers were safeon that  date, and recounting the friendly  relations   existing   between   them  and the yamen, as well as reporting  the sending of supplies to the legations by the yamen.    The message  contains this important statement:.  "A   successful termination of' the  conference with the ministers, for  their   conveyance under escort to  Tien-Tsin is expected, but on account   of the recommencement'of  hostilities at Tien-Tsin code telegrams for transmission to the representatives are considered^ uudesire-  able."   This appears to confirm the  statement, that theChinesq will not  attempt to stop,the march to Pekin  by using the ministers as'hostages.  The Lokal Anzeiger, of Berlin,  publishing an ' interview ^ with' Li  Hung Chang.-qubtfis him as declaring emphatically-that:China' must  not in any circumstances'cede any  more territory "to any power.      -  :  The St. Petersburg correspondent  of the Daily Mail says:   "Active  negotiations   are    proceeding    between Russia and the United States,  the probable outcome of which will  be a resolution to uphold the integrity of China unconditionally."  The Standard's Shang-Hai* representative, wiring Sunday, says:  "It is clear that the march to the  relief of Pekin will be anything but  a walkover. Japahese scouts have  discovered a large force of Chinese  southwest of Tien-Tsin,. and an-'  other large force in the vicinity of  Lu Tai to the eastward.  A Shang-Hai special, dated August Oth says: "Li Hung Chang  has officially informed the' consuls  that the ministers left Pekin for  Tien-Tsin last Friday, August 3rd,  with general Lung in command of  the escort.., The consuls are by_np_  means^disposed-to credit earl Li's  statement.  GITY COUNCIL IN SESSION  -   A Dreary Season at Cowes.  Cowlbs, Isle of Wight, August 6.  ���The presence in these waters of  several American yachts, and the  entertainments given on board of  them, saves the opening of the  yachting season from utter dreariness. Emperor William cables that  on account of the death of the duke  of Saxe-Cobourg and Gotha he is  compelled to ^withdraw his yacht  Meteor from all competitions, excepting the race for the Queen's  cup, in which she will take part out  of respect for honor of the trophy.  Empress Frederick 111,  London, August 0. ��� Notwithstanding the, denial .issued from  Berlin, it is quite certain that the  empress Frederick, the queen's eldest and most beloved daughter, is  seriously ill, and that great specialists consider her life a matter of  months. She is too ill to leave the  castle at Freiderichshoff near Hamburg for her customary visit to  England. Queen Victoria, knowing  her desire to possess an English  home, gave her the white lodge at  Richmond last year, but she will  probably never be able to occupy it.  .   .Honoring the Dead. ���  Rome, August 6.���The chamber  of deputies today reopened with an  immense throng present. The tribunes were draped in black, the  president of the chamber, sigor  Villa, delivered a memorial address ..__ .  eulogizing the late king Humbert. | cottonwoods  Routine Matters Disposed of.  The squatters who are residing  along the lake front will have to  remove   to   other   quarters at an  early date if the present campaign  inaugurated by the city council is  successful.   At last night's meeting  of the board, the special committee  appointed at the previous meeting  to interview the government and  C. P. R. officials reported through  alderman Arthur in the absence of  alderman   Wilson,   the   chairman.  Alderman Arthur stated that the  committee called on John A. Turner,  government agent, and laid, before  him the wishes of   the council in,  respect to the squatters.' Mr. Turner  informed them that he could not  act   in   the   matter   on   his'   own  responsibility, but that if the C. P. R.  would co-operate he would take the  question up with the government  and if instructed to do so would do  all    in   his   power .to   have   the  squatters removed.    Captain Troup,  was next seen by the committee  and he   was   discovered to be as  anxious as the aldermen to have the  landyacated. Captain Trouppointed  out   that   some of  the   squatters  paid the C. P. R. a nominal rental  and would require a month's notice  but he would be glad to deal with  the other's summarily.   If the city  would   guarantee   the removal of  squatters on streets and alleys on  the lake front and the government  from government -lands, he would  communicate with his officials,at  Vancouver    and    anticipated   no  trouble in arranging the matter.  The report was received. A suggestion .was made that the "government might turn the foreshore east  of Ward street over to the city and  thus enable the corporation to deal  with the' problem ; single handed.  On motion of aldermen Hall 'and  Arthur it was resolved to make the  request when .writing about the.removal of squatters. ��� ' ��� ���'  . Fire'chief Thompson and sanitary  inspector-Symes wrote, the council  suggesting that paper' and rubbish  of similar nature should be removed  to a suitable spot and there burned,  and that a charge of $2 per month  be made for this service.  It was stated that chief ' Thompson had interviewed a number of  merchants aiid found them agreeable to the arrangement suggested.  The point to be gained was* immunity from fires! The question of'  charges came up, alderman Hall being of opinion that in, some in-'  stances a charge of $2 per month'  would be excessive. The maximum  charge was therefore placed at $2 ���  with the understanding that mer-J  chants who had a small araount'of  rubbish should be charged accordingly.. . . ������ ,7  , Chief Thompson addressed/the  council strongly recommending the  purchase of additional hose for the  fire hall. The matter was discussed  and a resolution carried _ordering-  1000 feet of Paragon hose, a spanner and an expander, the latter instruments being utilized for repairing hose.  City treasurer Wasson was granted a month's leave of absence.  A resolution was carried instructing the city clerk to request the  department of lands and works to  deed to the city the whole of the  park site near the hospital and what  remains of the old cemetery.  The council also resolved to endorse the school board's request to  the government to transfer the central school building and site to the  city together with a grant of $15,-  000 for a high school; . j  C.Jisckpwicz offered on behalf of  the residents of the Hume addition  to procure pipe and lay. same if  permission was granted to connect  with the city mains. The necessary  permission was granted.  The meeting concluded with, a  small budget of by-Jaws. Number  65, to regulate the duties of public  officials, was finally reconsidered  and adopted. -���;--..:*���  ���; The by-law to govern'the weight  and sale of bread was introduced.  It provided that all bread shall be  in loaves of the full weight of one  pound, and that the chief :of police  shall have power to enter stores or  examine wagons for the purpose of  inspecting bread and seizing any  bread found to be light weight.  The shade tree by-law provided  that permits shall be necessary to  cut or plant trees, that trees must  be planted 12J feet apart, that no  silver poplars, Balm of Gileads,  or   willows  shall be  one shall climb or .injure trees or  tie horses thereto.  The by-law^relating to the public  morals governed the usual matters  coming under this head.  The three by-laws w*ere advanced  to the seconcV reading.  The aldernien present at the session were:'Irvine, chairman: Morrison, McKillop, Hall and Arthur.

Victoria, August 0.���The steamer Amur, which arrived this morning, brought the news that on" July  31st a meeting was held at Skagway with secretary of the treasury  Spaulding, ��� when the merchants  asked for a discontinuance of the  bonding privileges, and on being  told they could have no assurance  of such course, asked for the closing of the port. Spaulding will lay  their request" before the government at Washington. This would  shut out British vessels.  Senator Mason, in an interview  at Skagway, says he 'voted for the  Alaskan bill, but was then unfamiliar with the conditions, and  will fight it now. He has seen the  injustice in congress. He says the  British have bluffed the Americans  over the Boundary question. ' He is  a Republican but is not in sympathy with secretary Hay, who he  says is too much of a Britisher and  was responsible for America losing  its grip of Alaska.  The barge Camden has been condemned in Skagway. Jack Dalton  is building a new trail to Porcupine,  to be all-American at. a cost_of  , $4000. The new line,threw the old  trail into British territory. A rate  war has commenced on the Yukon  passenger business, and passengers  are now being carried from Skagway to Dawson for $30.  trip into the' Boer country. The  letter speaks of a. contemplated ten  days' vacation, indicating' that it  was purely for recuperation of his  health. -This is the only ^word received from Mr. Stowe on the subject and the department has no  information concerning the report  from South Africa that the railroad  train on which Mr. Stowe traveled  was besieged and almost captured  by a large force of Boers.  The Rosslaud men won solely on  their merits as* marksmen, but it is  interesting, to;<note that the men  who represented Nelson scored an  aggregate.~_6f.81-Jjpjoint's,at the practice here on.Saturday, witfr'no par*  ticularly large-scores in the list.'' A  cordial invitation was extended tbe  Rosslanders, and accepted by them,  to visit Nelson at an early date.  The local men hope at' that time to  turn the-tables on their opponents.  THE ATHABASCA CLEAN UP  Good Progress Being Made.  E. Nelson Fell, manager of the  Athabasca mine, brought - down a  handsome gold brick ��� yesterday  afternoon as tbe result of the run  at. the mill for June, the figures for  which are appended:  Period of run 27 days 23 hours  (dhut down '._ days dining celebration)  Tons of ore crushed 100  Value of bullion recovered ��13,530 00  Value of concentrate recovered     3,591 32  He was frequently applauded.

Sixty men and ten teams  are employed on tho foundations  for the buildings. ��� These are of? a  substantial nature and will be  finished this mouth. The'plant will  include five 17-fobt leeching tanks,  with storage and precipitating  tanks and gold boxes on a similar  scale. '���* Thirty tons per diem will be  the capacity of the plant, which is  somewhat in excess of the requirements at the present time.  The Betreat From Nome.  Victoria, August 0.���The steamer  Utopia arrived from Skagway today on her way from Nome. Passengers report considerable smallpox, and epidemics of lagrippe and  pneumonia at Nome. . The hospital  arrangements are poor. * There being too much whiskey at Nome the  dealers are asking permission to  send their's back to San Francisco  and Seattle. While returning  miners say the Nome country is no  good, the.paper8 say the creeks are  turning out,well, aud the output  will be fifteen .million. The steamer  ' Cor win^has* returned. to "Nome,' from *  the Siberian coast. 'The miners find  too much ice in the creeks there to  work.        ���* ���  Savs China is Powerless.  Berlin, August 6.���The German  foreign office announced tonight  that it had no China news, and  that it doubted whether r^the advance of the allied forces from  Tien-Tsin had begun. - The Lokal  Anzeiger publishes an interview  "Which Dr. Zeaker, its special _China  correspondent, had . with Li  Hung Chang at Canton on July  5th. - Li told the correspondent  that the Boxers would not rebel  and were loyal to the royal house.  This present movement, he explained, was directed chiefly against  native Christians, who had been  using international protection to'  oppose Boxers. With reference to  "the-missionaries, he said: "It  my firm conviction that the  is  missionaries are always in danger, for  the relations between the Chinese  population and foreigners have  been the cause of nearly all the  trouble and will continue to be."  Russia and Germany United.  New York, August 6.���United  States ambassador White, who arrived in New York from'Germany  today, when asked what he thought  of the cable report that Russia and  Germany would declare for war  conjointly against China, said: "I  think it is very likely. Both countries have the same cause for war,  and both - would have common  cause for acting together." He did  not think ��� a partition would be  made of China*  Intense Heat in Chicago.  Chicago, August 6.���Eleven persons died, and a score were prostrated, as the result of the heat  here today. The maximum temperature was 93 degrees.  Stormy Scene in the Commons.  London, August 6.���One of the  stormiest scenes of the present session of the house of commons occurred this evening when William  Ashmead Bu rdett-Cou tts, Conser-;  vative member for Westminster,  demanded greater powers for the  hospital committee to' investigate  the management of military hos-  Africa. He de-  truth would not  tho present plan  as   the   soldiers  pitals in South  clared that the  be learned under  of   investigation  would be afraid to testify. Arthur  J. Balfour, government leader, in  the course of a bitter reply, accused  Mr. Biirdette-Coutts of "maligning  the character of the British army,"  and a very stormy scene followed.  Large Order, for Army Meat.  Chicago, August - 6.���Chicago  packers today were asked ^by the  government to furnish 2,000,000  pounds of. meats, within thirty  days, for the American soldiers in  the Orient. This is said to be the  largest requisition ever issued by  the government of the United  States.  Consul Stowe's Movements.  Washington, August 0.���Assistant secretary of state Cridler today  received a private letter from consul Stowe, in South Africa, written  July 11th, just prior to Mr. Stowe's  IT IS PAINTED TOO BLACK  Life at Cape Nome.  Washington; August 6:���A letter, dated July 22nd, has been received at the treasury department  from a former employee of the department;   now  at   Cape    Nome,  Alaska.   The writer, who -has the  entire confidence" of  the officials,  says: "The reports' of the disease  and death that have been taken  back to the states are untruthful.  The   smallpox  scare  is   all  over.  There were 20 cases in all, and all  of them came on the Oregon.   As  yet there has been no typhoid, but  the season has been dry, which probably ' accounts   for < its   absence.  There   have   been, twelve   violent  deaths here since June 10th.   Four  'men   have   been   drowned,' three  ' have committed'suicide, and three  have been shot.    -\-, -       ,  ������   .

The season on Anvil  creek has been so dry, there having  been neither rain nor snow since  June 17tb, that the creeks can not  be worked   to, advantage.     Each"  sluice box required a. five or six  inch stream of water of considerable force.    One large company on  Anvil creek saylthey would take  out $10,000 a weel^more but for  the scarcity of water.   As it is this  company is doing well, and is .said  to have shipped a large quantity of  yellow metal,on the , Garonne, and  some $10,000 worth has been sold  to alocalbank ih'Nome.

But it was  decidedly Minnesota's day.' At the  start   there   was   a light* breeze,  probably    half   the   strength    of  yesterday's, and the St. Paul boat  gained   from   the   sound*   of   the  whistle.   The. wind, .however, fell"  gradually and for the last hour the  boats almost drifted'along.   At 6  o'clock when the judges called off  the race, Minnesota was over a mile  ahead and   would certainly have  won with even a zephyr to waft  her along. *  %\  THE GRAND FORKS SMELTER:  * Will Soon be Blows in. \ - /;  The big gates atthe Grand Forks a  dam have been shut down at last, <-*>i  and the water is rapidly backing ���?.."[  up to form the eight-mile lake 'that:fi  will be part of the river above the^l  dam from now on. -Thelasfe'gate^l  was shut down at noon on Friday; *: J*  ancTsince that time no ��� water- has;?4-'  come through, but the river, is'run^Y!  ing right along, although it is-vei-y^  low.       .       , >    -^-''7-^  -.

The ore shipped from Silverton during the month of July amounted to  356 tons, which should net the owners $35,000, as all of the ores so far  shipped from Silverton averaged  about $100 net to the ton.  Ellis Knocked Out.  Rossland, August 6.���Fred Ellis  was knocked out at the International tonight in one round, after two  minutes of hard fighting, by Andy  King. Ellis knocked King down in  the commencement of the fight.  Then King went at him and knocked Ellis down twice, and he took  eight seconds each time before he  got up. Then King knocked him  down and out.  gold commissioner Senkler. The"  judge says that cwhen McTavislrJ'J  was thereupon, himself examined;~^|  under oath and by his evidence* it'  was found that although in'h'isj  letter he pretended to speak about,  facts of which he was personally,  cognizant, yet he had to' declare that he based these-"||  accusations only upon. hearsay.'  The names of the parties. from  whom he pretended to have obtained such information were given, .  and everyone of them who could,, _|  -be���found inT'the^^tefritbry was-  brought and examined, with the result that McTavish was in all  points contradicted by them, and  no proof could be adduced connecting Senkler, or any employee, in  any way with auy of the 'frauds  complained of, which frauds had  been perpetrated by miners and  private individuals and not by  officials. After the fourth or fifth  sitting McTavish disappeared and  could not be found in the territory.  ��� Wood worth continued to represent  him to the end and finally declared  that he had to admit that nothing  had been proven against: Mr. Senkler or anybody else connected with  his office. The result of the investigation, therefore, is that McTavish,  by his letter, has made a false, dishonest and baseless accusation,  which in no way has been sustained, either against Mr. Senkler  or anybody under him.   '       ,  Information has been received  here that CM. Woodworth, lawyer  at Dawson, has, been arrested for  fraud and forgery. He was one of  the three parties who were supplying information to sir Hibbert Tupper to base his charges on. The  other two were Eugene Allan and  Semple, of the Klondike Nugget.  Allan, who skipped the country is  a defaulter, and Semple is a fugitive from justice.  Lynch Defeats Sogers.

It is difficult to  understand why the Miner should  seek by this circumstance to show  that the member for Nelson is opposing the government and following Joseph Martin. It is even more  difficult to understand why any  fancied "opposition to the government on the part of Mr. Houston,  or any one else, should cause the  Miner any annoyance. Does the  "man with the muck-rake," who  edits the evening paper, forget that  during the campaign one-half of  his paper was given over to the  commendation of the avowed Mar-  tinite candidate in the Nelson riding, and that much was written  about the demise of Turnerism and  the horrors of threatened Dunsmuir-  ian ascendency.

In  other pursuits experience has shown  that better results are obtained  where the workers have regular  respites from labor than in cases of  a steady grind day after day.  There is no reason why the same  should not prove true in the case of  mining, and it is not unlikely that  the example of the Rossland companies will be followed by others  throughout the district.  ' If the press reports.are to be relied upon, it is not difficult to make  an impression upon the Japanese  government. . A few weeks ago,  owing to a growing indignation  against the rising tide of Japanese  immigration into the Dominion of  Canada,' the announcement was  made from. Japan that for  the future . the number of  emigrants from Japan for  North America, should be restricted  to something less than 5000 per  annum. This was not considered  good enough, and an intimation to  this effect was given .to' the Japanese government through the press  of the Dominion. - Now comes, a  further announcement, that for the  present all immigration from Japan  shall be prohibited. This disposes  of' the - Japanese problem,. and it  now remains for the Canadian government to perform the ��� same kind  service for the.Chinsse.  The Laurier government will not  suffer any loss through the falling-  out botwe-m president Shaughnessy  and minister Blair over the latter's  management of  the   Intercolonial  railway. ' In fact it might be very  good politics, for the managers of  the Libei al campaign, to spread as  widely a* possible the statement of  president Shaughnessy, that during  the past two^or three years the  . Canadian Pacific . railway has had  the active opposition of the government.   They might have some.difficulty in convincing the elebtors'that  the statement was well 'founded,  but it is so decidedly fresh, to have j  a government accused of pursuing  such a policy that- it could not fail  to be a di awing card.

Major Steele, who is in command  of Strathcona's Horse in South  Africa, has written a rather interesting letter to John A. Kerr of  Perth, Ontario, in the course of  which he expresses his admiration  for general Buller. Tbe letter is  dated from Standton, in the Transvaal, and bears date June 25th,  and is as follows:    .  "I am with the third mounted  brigade in general Buller's advance  under lord Dundonald, who is a  fine soldier.' We lay at the Cape  for some time under orders for very  important work, and were then  sent to' Zululand and Kosie' Bay,  the "A" and "C" squadrons to the  former country and "B" squadron  to the latter, a bay on the Indian  ocean,- to land and make a rapid  march through Tongaland, almost  unknown, and destroy the-rail way  and bridge at Oomati, which supplies the Boers from Portuguese  territory.  The scheme had, when I arrived  at Kosie Bay, leaked out through  some   fool.' at the Cape, and the  Boers had put in an enormously  superior force, which rendered our  extremely risky business still more  risky.    I had to change my way of  going about it and join my other  squadrons.   I did this at Durban  and marched to Estcourt, Zululand,  and then was on the, point of ad-'  vancing the 250 miles through Zulu-  land- and. Tongaland,   when   lord  Roberts   again   changed the. plan  and sent us'here. ��� I "had to make a  forced' march   to Durban of   110  miles in three days with a big outfit, and from thence come to Newcastle by rail to join general Buller.  -   "I did so, and after arranging my  transports made two days of forced  marches to   Vjjj-lkhurst and  there  joined the brigade with which we  are now.     I marched with it . to  Paardekop whdre opposition   was  expected but we found none.   Then  marched here 23  miles, where we  remained while general   Buller is  ���concentrating  for   an    important  movement.  1 "We saw a tremendously strong  position of the enemy forced by  general Buller to relieve Ladysmith  and other positions of Laing's Nek  which he skilfullp turned. It is no  -use-for���anyone���to^abuse_general.  Buller in this army. I consider,  and so does everyone else, that the  difficulties he had to contend with  were greater than any yet met in  South Africa and could not be accomplished except by an extremely  able commander. The position was  most impregnable and the troops  that would face them are certainly  of av high'character'as soldiers. The  regiment is splendid, but it has  taken constant attention to get it  into shape.  &;_f-e��-&'_t-_S-__['i_'-i_,,-<t   ���vv>-*^--**'^-,-r��-*i>-,a-,-*>-��''*>''a-*��-*->-*%-*����-*-��--*-^^^-^-*��'*^-'^-al-s .

NELSON   MAN  IN PRETORIA.  was  Tbe following interesting letter  received by John McLatcbie  of tbis city, from R. B. Eaton, late  of Nelson, but now- with tbe second  contingent:   " "  ' Pretoria, June 10th, 1900.  ��� Dear Mr. McLatchie:���We occupied this town a few days ago  after following the Boers up so,  close .that they bad no time to  mount their guns, in their forts.'  There arc now aboufc 4000 of them  in this vicinity aud an armistice is  ou. .Altogether the second Can.  M. j>t. has been in five engagements  one lasting two days.

The days aie like summer in  British Columbia, without rain, and  the nights are cool and frosty.  Havo nofc beeu ill a day since starting, bufc have been hungry  more -than once. ������ Have been wondering if you are still iu Nelson,  where I am addressing tbis, and  how everyone is getting along there.  There has been very little cbance  of writing. Hope to catch up my  correspondence soon now and to get  pen and ink.

Things are in a pretty tough state  in .the west Australian gold fields.  A petition to the queen, which  bears 28,000 signatures, and which,  outstretched, would measure nearly  a mile in-length, says'the west Australian farmers, who were the first  settlers, have been quite as cool as  were the Transvaalers in tlieir welcome of new-comers who flocked  into their country after the discovery there of rich deposits of  gold. So those farmers, Boer-like,  enacted. a series of laws calculated  to keep the government of the country in their own hands by making  the acquirement of political rights  extremely difficult, if not impossible,  to the,gold-diggers. They seem to  be carrying on things there very  much as.the Boers ran South Africa,  . and peopleHtvlio have been to, Australia agree that those men there  who first built their dugouts in the  i bush are about as selfish and as un-  progressive as any race of white  men that live anywhere in this old  world. .  ..'������������' Death of Captain Blanchard.  R. B. Hughes of Winnipeg, has  Treceived a letter from his brother,  private E. N. Hughes, who went  from Winnipeg to South .Africa  with the -first' contingent. The  letter is written from Magersfontein  .under date of June 20fch. Private  Hughes gives the first details received   of lieutenant  Blanchard's  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  death. It appears that lieutenant  Blancliard was in tbe hospital at  Bloemfontein and'was going from  thafc point to rejoin A company  when he met with a fatal wound in  an engagement at Roodevaal, from  which he expired after eight days'  suffering. Private Hughes was  with lieutenant Blancliard in tbis  fight and was taken prisoner by  DeWet, but he posed as a wounded  man and got iu the ambulance  wagon with Blancliard and says he  "succeeded in evading the wily Boer  until I got into Yeomanry hospital  lines, where I was all right." He  continues: "Poor Blanchard, he  was hit in four places by a bursting  shell, a piece of which took away  part of my trousers. Pieces of the  ' Bhell injured Blanchard's knee, foot  and calf of the leg, another piece  entering his lung and caused bleeding when ho would move.' He died  as game as a bantam, I buried him  at Kroonstad, then went down to  Bloemfontein aud then on here."  THE BLACK PROBLEM.  How will the United States solve  its   black   problem?    The colored  population   is estimated at   eight  millions, and its natural rate, of increase is large.     This population  cannot be assimilated by re-marriage or by the social and civil process by which foreigners are quickly  worked into the crazy-quilt of life  in the republic.     The white race  refuses to absorb the black in the  southern states; the two are, and  apparently must ever be, in, relations of alert fear and hatred, and  it is not improbable that one or tbe  other must  eventually withdraw.  There is nothing in the nature of  ^the_blacks_tO-cau8e_them-to- withdraw���no enterprise, no ambition  to found something better somewhere else.   It is this spirit which  has led the white race to successively   people   islands   and   continents.   The colored people of the  South would prefer to stay where  they are.   They have nowhere else  to go: but the whites have welcome  access   to   a    hundred    countries.  Events usually proceed along the  lines of least resistance, and it is  probable that   large  and ever-increasing areas of the South will be  given up entirely-to  the colored  people.   In ihe breast of the white  there is. a deep aversion for his  black   neighbor,   and,   all    things  being equal, he will prefer to remove to a part of his own country  where   he   will not have   colored  neighbors.   In the end the blacks  may have a country of their own  within the union.   When that time  fully arrives tbe question will present  itself   whether   the    colored  states shall be within the union or  under it.  If a nation throws missiles into  the air above itself, they will' fall  back upon it in time, and the  United States has yet to settle with  nature for its slave trade. A law  as inexorable as that of gravitation  governs such matters.  Canada would not seek to people  her' uninhabited regions with  swarms of black or yellow men, although agents are everywhere representing us in Europe, seeking to  encourage immigration to this  country. No white state will welcome or admit colored emigrants,  if they should come in large num-  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD   OFFICE. TORONTO.

Yet,  after all, the slave trade was in its  final effects, nothing else than a  great colonizing influence which  brought in as slaves a people who  would never have been admitted as  emigrants. Fate, working upon  the greed of the white man, transplanted' the colored race from  Africa fco America by the only subterfuge that ever could have succeeded in establishing that race in  the midst of the white race on a  continent chosen for its own.' The  people who, coming ��� as - freemen,  would have been repelled, were  seized in their own country and imported by violence, only to become  freemen-in time, after being made  much less desirable���through the  degradations they endured���than  they would have been if they had  entered the country as voluntary-  comers.           [,    -  Chicago Saloons.  Two thousand saloons in Chicago  will go out of- business October 1st.  This means the revenue of the city  will fall off $1,000,000 from that  source alone. It is said that the  rise in the price of beer is the principal reason for the falling off.  Small saloons keepers who.have depended on the sale of beer by measure have been unable to realize any  profit and they are gradually transferring their holdings back to the'  breweries or to persons willing to  assume the risk for the rest of the  term. At present there are 5700  saloons in Chicago/, which is 1300  less than two' years ago.  TROUBLE  AT  NOME.  Seattle, Aug. 6.���The first seri-  ous-trouble-between���the-military  and the prospectors in the north  this year resulted in the arrest of  over 100 of the miners who went to  Toppuki about fifty miles south of  Nome City.' The men had been  forced to quit work on the Topkuk  beach by the authorities several  days before, but the ground had  proven to be rich and they went  back to work again. Ten of. the  prisoners were brought to Nome on  July 20th arid released on bonds.  The clash occurred July 17th.  About a week before over 100 miners  were forced to quit work along the  beach at .Topkuk by soldiers that  were landed from the United States  transport "Seward." Soldiers were  regularly detailed, day and night to  guard the cliff from being torn  away by the miners, who were only  too eager to get at the rich pay  streak which was already uncovered  for a -width of several hundred feet.  Under the conditions of suspension . of work, the miners were allowed to work their dumps, which  was pretty nearly completed this  week. That having been done, the  miners had a consultation and' determined to defy ��Uncle Sam and return to work.  The soldiers were all mustered  out on the beach, and, with bayonets  fixed, attempted to force the men to  leave, but not a man stirred. A  parley ensued, with fche result that  thirty or forty miners submitted to  be arrested and were put under  guard. Others quickly took the  place of the arrested ones, and were  in turn themselves arrested, until  the soldiers have now more than  they can attend to.  A perplexing problem now is how  .to feed and house the arrested  miners. If they are not fed, the  soldiers are in danger of being overpowered ' until relieved by the  revenue cutters or transports.,  This trouble is a culmination of a  contest of the creek claimants of  No. 1, of which there are two factions. One faction claimed to have  located the tundra claim in December last, and were suffered to be in  possession. The * other faction  claimed that because the initial  monuments af the first faction was  set up on the beach and not on the  tundra, it was, not a legal location  and was jumpable, which they accordingly are alleged to have done.  THE   MACHINISTS  STRIKE.  Winnipeg, August 0.���The machinists, boiler-makers and fitters  employed by the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company in the shops at  Winnipeg, Port 'William and other  divisional points .west to, the. Pacific  coast, went out oh strike this morning to. the number of about 500. On  Tuesday   last   about    twenty-five  men were discharged by the company, owing, the officials explained,  to the prospect of hard times, and  the less amount of work that would  naturally follow-with the reduction  in traffic.    The officials pointed out  that with only half a crop in the  province, there would be only half  the freight shipments, and following this shortage there would be a  corresponding falling oif in the imports.   In fact, they claimed that  the latter was already noticeable.  r   Against this the men's case is presented as follows:  .   "At a meeting hold on  Wednesday night of a committee of boiler-  makers,    machinists,    blacksmiths  and allied mechanics, ifc   was   resolved that the reduction   of the  staff was a direct; blow by the company against the union under false  pretences of decrease of business;  that the   company  ignored whatever overtures were' made to them  for better conditions ; in the reduction of the staff the company practically aimed at the active mem-  bers of- the unions ; that preference,  was given to non-union men ; that  efficiency and length of service was  totally ignored."  7 These resolutions were endorsed  by each of the uuions and it was on  these grounds that the strike was  declared/ ���������   The Inventors of Gunpowder.  China's own arsenals are said to  have furnished some part of tbe  guns which the insurrectionists are  using; and the dispatches say they  are effective and well served. Chiua  has arsenals afc Shang-Hai, Wuchang, Hanyan on "the Yaugfcse, and  Kankin, and foreign writers who  have described them, in the past  two years, have gonerally agreed  that the caunon and Mauser rifles  they are turning out are of very  good quality, but that these  weapons might be imported far  more cheaply than they are manufactured at home. Lord Charles  Beresford said, however, that the  small cannon made at Hanyan in  1898 were almost worthless. The  Chinese people gave gunpowder to  the world and a considerable  amount of the product, often  of very poor quality, is made up  into firecrackers and exploded  mainly in China and the United  States. China will probably never  consume as much gunpowder in  war as she has burned in mere  noise making and spectacle. When  John Bell visited Pekin in 1721 he  was told by "the emperor's general  of artillery" that the Chinese had  used gunpowder in fireworks for  more than 2000 years, according to  their records, but they had only recently begun to apply it to the pur  poses of war. The inventor of the  Maxim gun wrote, lasfc year, that  gunpowder was originally iised in  war by the Chinese, not for hurling projectiles, but to produce a  great noise, spluttering and smoke  for the purpose of frightening  rather than of injuring an enemy.

The Exchequer property is not to  resume operations at once as was  generally anticipated when the announcement of the. resumption of  work at the smelter was made. The  company is satisfied from - experiments that the pre from the property is amenable]to a\cyanide-bromp  or similar treatment ' and prefer  milling the output on the ground to  tho expense of sorting, sacking,  tramming and smelting as has been  done heretofore. It is probable,  therefore, that' no further shipments will be made to the smelter,  but the directors;.are not yet prepared to state what will be done;  R. S. Lennie, secretary of the company, H. G. Neelands, director, and  A. Mussen/engineer,, inspected the  property on Sunday, and a meeting  to discuss matters further is on tho  tapis.  A Business-Like Duel.

BYERS & CO.  NKLSON  KASLO  SANDON  "The total killed and wounded in  the British army in South Africa  up to July 1st was in round figures  15,000. The casualties among railroad employees for the year were  two and one-half times as many.  The casualties on railroads in the  United States exceeded the total  number .of persons killed and  wounded in the Philippines and  South Africa, including Americans,  Filipinos, British and Boers." The  figures of the killed and wounded  Filipinos are 12,284 and 14,000 in  South Africa; a total of 30.504;  while on United States railroads  there were 51,743 killed and wounded, which leaves a margin of 21,239  to cover the Boer killed and wounded. , It seems to be a clear case that  railroading is very much more dangerous than war.

If the casualties  atnong-them-had^-been-in^Iike-pro^  portion to those among the' railroad  employees, as reported by the Interstate commission,Vit would give 406  killed and 5727 wounded, or a total  of 6133. The actual total for the  year, based on the average number  fur twenty-three months, is 1640.  From this calculation it appears  that the risk to life'and limb among  trainsmen on railroads in the United  States is nearly.four times as great  as among the soldiers in. the Philippines. ; Elaborating further, it says:  DEBENTURES  FOR* SALE  Wanted���two   lady    canvassers  and district manager for publishing company.
