To the Foreign Office.  Bqxdon, August 8.���In the house  of   commons 'today, parliamentary  secretary Broderick read a telegram  from sir Claude Macdonald, British  minister    to    Cliina,   received   in  cipher at the  foreign   oflice   this  morning.   The dispatch was in reply to a government message and  bore the date of Pekiu, August 3rd.  It was as follows:  *   J " I  have   today   received   your  cipher telegram forwarded to me  by the Chinese minister.   The shell  ancl cannon fire ceased on July 10,  but the rifle fire has continued from  the Chinese positions held by the  government   troops   and    Boxers  intermittently ever since. The casualties since then have been slight.  Except one private of marines all  the  wounded are doing well.    The  rest of the British in the legations  arc well including the whole garrison.   The total number of killed  is  sixty   and   wounded   110.    We  strengthened our fortifications and  have over 200 women refugees in  the legations.   The Chinese government has refused transmission of  telegrams in cipher until now."  Washington. August 8.���Secretary Roofc-said this afternoon that  a message had been delivered to  minister Wu saying that free communication had not yet been established between this government  aud its minister in -Chiua, and  therefore the demands made in the  president's reply to the emperor  had not been acceded to.  "New York, August 8.���Genoral  Xelson A. Miles, discussing the  Chinese situation, said here today  thafc he regarded ifc as very serious.  "China," he said, "is a bad country  for troops to move through. Serious  obstacles are to be .encountered in  forwarding munitions of war and  ��� general supplies. I see ' a force of  150,000 Chinese soldiers are reported  to, be within a day's march of Tien-  Tsin. It is possible that they may  strike in behind the relief column and  threaten its line of communication.  It would be a serious matter were  -the column cut- off as there is- no,  ��V?port$ng force to rush to its aid."  He said ihe United States should be  able to get 5000 troops into China  within a month.  Hamburg, August S.���The Boer-  senhalle asserts that the czar of  Russia has cabled to field ��� marshal  count von Waldersee ofj the. German ftrmy- an expression of his  majesty's satisfaction at the field  marshal's appointment as commander-in-chief of tne international  forces in China.  I members of the family consider  that the secretary is suffering from  anything more than a slight indisposition. They believe that a few-  days' rest will.thoroughlyrecuperate  him.  Fire in Quebec.  Quebec, August 8.���The Chouin-  ard block, adjoining the Richelieu  and Ontario Navigation company's  wharf, was destroyed by fire last  night, together with a stock of provisions, the property, of O. Jacques  and Bussier & Co., provision merchants. The loss is estimated between $50,000 and $00,000; insurance, about $15,000.  GREAT COPPER DISCOVERY  ELANDS   RIVER   GARRISON  Queen's Speech.  London, August 8.���The queen's  speech at the proroguing of parliament, after stating that the  relations with the powers of Europe  and America continued friendly,  and a reference to the establishment  of the Commonwealth ol Australia,  ���refersto-the-wai-in���South*-Africar  "It has placed in the strongest  light the heroism and high military  qualities of the troops brought together under my banner from this  country, from Canada, Australia  and my South African possessions."  The speech then says: "Believing  the continued independence of the  republics to be a constant danger  to the peace of South Africa, I  authorized the annexation of the  Free State as a first step to the  union, of the races iinder an institution which mtiy in time be developed so as to secure rights and  privileges in South Africa."  Referring to China, the speech  from the throne says: "The British  and other legations at P:ekin have  been unexpectedly attacked by an  insurgent mob and it is feared  many of their inmates have been  murdered. How far the Chinese  authorities are accomplices in this  atrocious crime and whether the  British minister and his family are  among the victims are matters still  in uncertainty. The utmost efforts  will be made by myself and my  allies to visit with punishment the  authors of this unexampled crime."  Hay is Improving.  Sunapee Lake, New Hampshire,  , August 7.���Secretary Hay, who  reached here for his vacation last  Saturday, was resting comfortably  today. The cold which he contracted on the way from Washington caused a slight fever and the  secretary was very much exhausted  by the strain of his duties in connection with the Chinese situation,.  faut neither his physician nor the  In the Vicinity of Kaslo.  Kaslo, August 8.���George Kane  may find mining more profitable,  than politics. Two years ago he  staked a claim a few miles south of  Kaslo and four miles west of Mirror lake. It did not give any great  promise at first, so he had time to  suck in the Martin creed and was  of the inglorious but not mute  army that fell at the polls a short  time ago. Politics, having- given  him the go-by, George Kane sought  his claim and in company with  Alex Mackenzie performed such  good work that the other day he  made a remarkable find of copper-  gold ore. He brought the news to  town himself and, with his native  modesty, declares that the vein-is  eight feet wide and a mile long. He  has tapped the vein in half a dozen  places.  Ifc is worth while to pay a visit to  the mouth of Woodbury creek,"nine  miles from'Kaslo. It is a scene of  much activity. The Lima, Ohio,  company, which has taken over the  whole property of the Canadian  Pacific Mining and Milling Company, contemplates spending a  large some of money in proving thes  district. - James B. Townsend, who  was receiver- of- the Detroit and  Lima Northern railway, is the head  of the new concern and has just returned home, after a visit to'the  propertyT He has left the affairs of  the company in charge of C. W.  Risley, also of Lima, Ohio, and that  gentleman *has :quite"a.force of men;  ��� at work, not only- in the. mine, but  in building offices, manager's residence and converting the Stillwater  hotel into quarters for the miners.  Mr. Risley stated that the shaft  was now down 150 feet, and it is  the intention of the company to go  down to a considerable depth. The  chief claims belonging to the company are the Budweiser, Superior  and Amazon. A small concentrator,  which was erected by the old company, is situated at the mouth of  the creek. Its capacity is. about  fif fcy tons a day. The provincial  mineralogist, who visited it recently,  was much struck by* its effectiveness. The power is obtained from  the creek by means of a flume. A  well fitted laboratory has just been  placed on the ground and is in  charge of Dr. . Hardin and - an  assistant.  Slocan Shipments for July..

London, August 8.���The secretary of state for the colonies, Mr.  Chamberlain, said in the house of  commons yesterday that the views  of Canada and Australia were completely in accord with her majesty's  government as to the necessity for  the annexation of the Orange Free  State and the Transvaal to the  British empire and the establishment of a government supported  by a military force with ultimate  extension of representative self-  government.  Arrested a Suspect.  Rome, August 8���At the railroad  station here, while the king and  queen were en route from Beggion  to Monza, a well dressed individual  was discovered hiding wifch a revolver concealed on his person. He  was arrested after a struggle, and  after being manacled was sent out  to Milan to be examined by Bressi's  judges. Compromising letters are  said to have been found upon him.  Believed" to Have Been Captured.  London, August 8.���11:30 p.m.���  Lord Roberts fears that the Elands  river garrison has been captured  after ten days' resistance. The war  office has received the following dispatch :  "Pretoria, August 7.���Delarey,  hearing of Ian Hamilton's approach  toward Rustenburg and seeing that  he had no chance of capturing  Baden-Powell, hurried off to Elands  river. Hamilton reported that  firing in the Elands river direction  ceased yesterday, and that lieutenant-colonel Hoar and garrison had  evidently been captured.  Hamilton leffc Rustenberg this  morning, bringing Baden-Powell's  force with him. v  Dewet commenced crossing the  Vaal river yesterday. Kitchener  is now moving in pursuit.  Methuen, on the right bank of the  Vaal, has evidently come into contact with Dewet's advance guard,  as his guns were heard by Kitchener this morning.  Companies Will.Appeal.;  7 Chicago, August 8.���The* Western   Union   and   Postal Telegraph  companies will join in an appeal to  the federal court for a dissolution  of    the    permanent      injunction  granted yesterday by judge Henry  of  Kansas   City,   to   the*Christie"  Street Commission Company   and  the Grain Brokerage Company of  Kansas' City, which restrains the  telegraph companies from refusing  to furnish them with the market  quotations of the Chicago board of  trade.   A   conference   of  the   attorneys   "of    the   two, .telegraph  companies      was      held      today,  and   it   was,  resolved   . to    join  hands   in   the   fight.     Meanwhile  both" companies, according to "the  telegraph officials, will ignore" that  part of the injunction which compels them   to furnish  the quotations on the grounds that to do so  would- compel them to break the  state" laws. , As, neither company-  now- furnishes ticker service of the  Chicago markets,,the* only way the  quotations -co.uld.'be.' obtained   by  .the telegraph companies, the officials  'say, would 'be by stealing private  information from messages passing  over their wires, thus directly violating the criminal code. ��� *  Gloom at Cowes.  Cowes, Isle of Wight, August 8.���  The gloom overhanging Cowes was  emphasized this afternoon when  the prince of Wales, who with the  duke and duchess of York and  others, arrived here from London  today, steamed through the long  line of yachts on the Victoria and  Albert, on which.a signal was flying  requesting that no salutes be fired.  The royal yacht came silently to  anchor and the fashionable crowd  present waited in vain for the  prince's appearance at - the Royal  Yacht Club. His highness boarded  -a-!aunch-late-in-the-afternoon~and  went directly to Osborne. It is not  expected that he will visit the club  until Friday. It is estimated that  American yachts worth a million  sterling are riding at anchor in  view of the club house. This is the  feature of the week. The race for  the emperor's cup was started, but  at 7:10 p. m. the yachts had not returned. It was a dead calm and it  was thought probable that the  yachts would not finish.  Blew Out His Brains.  New York, August 8.���E. Thiele,  fourth oflieer of the Hamburg-  American liner Deutschland, blew  out his brains during the voyage of  the big ocean greyhound that was  finished when the steamer reached  Hoboken today. The second day  out it was Thiele's turn to watch  on the bridge. The air made him  drowsy vand he fell asleep at his  post. Captain Albers came upon  him, ordered him to take off his  coat, the ship's badge of office, and  sent him to his cabin. The young  sailor went down in disgrace. Five  minutes after the door closed behind him a shot was heard, and  when it was forced open Thiele lay  on the floor with a bullet in his  brain.          First Contingent Moved.  Ottaava, August 8.���The First  Canadian contingent removed from  Springs, near Johannesburg, a few  days ago, and are now at Wolver-  nock, fifteen miles south of Dilduns-  drift on the Vaal river and forty  miles east of Reitzburg, where commandant Dewet is reported to be  surrounded by a British force under  lord Kitchener. It'.is not unlikely  the Canadians will thus share again  in the capture 6r.< another Boer  general as they did in the capture  of Cronje at Paardeberg.  Collision Near Hillyard.  Spokane, lugust 8.���In a headend collision. between the Spokane  Falls & Northern "'.northbound passenger train uid a: Great Northern  freight train last-night-fireman F.  N.

The freight engine ,,was driven  back by-the force of the collision  nearly 200 feet,', but kept on" the  track. The passenger engine- was  derailed. Engineer Vetter jumped,  but the fireman; F. N. Hall, was  caught between the tender and the  firebox and crushed to death, the  coal. burying ' him in the. wreck.  Passengers on the wrecked passenger train say that the force of the  collision was 7,'terrifie. Senator"  Warner Miller of New York, and  Clarence J. McCuaig, who > were in  the sleeping' "compartment, were  badly shaken up but~ received no  serious injuries. 7    V  Movement- of. United /States Troops.

To Protect Workmen.  Victoria, August 8.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���In the legislature  today Smith Curtis of Rossland introduced a bill which is of importance to the labor.unions. It provides that workmen shall have the  right to damages if brought under  contract into a district where a  strike is on without* having been  told of the strike. The bill is said  to have been suggested by the  Slocan labor troubles, when men  were shipped in to take the places  of strikers. -. - -   Joe Martin's bill intending to do  away with examinations of assayers  for permission to practice in British  Columbia was killed.  Sold Arms to Boers.  Ottawa, August 8.���Word comes  from South Africa to the effect that  two members of the second contingent (mounted rifles) under  colonel Lessard, named private  Hopkins of Toronto and private  Pearce of Bradford, both former  raembers of A squadron, Canadian  Dragoons, Toronto, have been sentenced to ten years' penal servitude  for having sold arms to the Boers,  which they had previously collected  from burghers.   No Action Taken.  Ottawa", August 8.���No .action  has yet been taken by the customs  department in the.matter of the  enquiry into the conduct of customs collector Woods of Sfc. Johns,  Quebec, for repelling in Sfc. John  pro-Boer attacks of some of his fellow townsmen. Although sir Wilfrid wifch a great flourish of trumpets told Mr. Monet that an investigation would be held, ifc still  hangs fire.   Justice Falmodin Dead.  Quebec, August 8.���Justice Pal-  modin of Arthabaskaville is dead,  aged 75 years. He has been ailing  for some months. He was held in  high esteem by the public.  High Temperature.  Chicago, August 8.���This is the  fifth day in which the temperature  reached over 90. Two deaths and  numerous prostrations were reported.  CANADA RETAINS THE CUP  Bed Coat Wins Three Eaces.  Montreal, August 8.���The Seawanhaka cup remains in Canada,  after three excellent contests in  which the0visiting yacht Minnesota  of St. Paul, Minnesota, made strong  efforts'to capture the trophy. Red  Coat won the concluding race' by-  over two minutes, amidst .wildest  applause, accompanied by whistling  demonstrations from the -flotilla at  the finishing buoy.  ' The start was made at 2:30, Red  Coat getting across the line first. A'  strong northwest wind was blowing and good speed maintained.  The race stopped for a time, Red  Coat being in the lead. The cause  of the stoppage was due to" the second buoy having blown away. A  new start was made from that point  at 3:40, Minnesota leading. Five  minutes afterwards the Canadian  boat caught up, but a thick mist  prevented a good view from that  time on. Red Coat, however, kept  in the lead, finishing at 5,22,28, thus  .winning today's race and successfully defending the Seawanhaka  cup.    Minnesota finished at 5,24,46.  to form a turning-movement, but  were unable to form into line. We  will cross the Pei Ho to the left  bank tomorrow morning and move  "on-Yang-Tsun.

Superintendent Hewitt   wa? ruIe���d oufc�� as it infringed on thfe^ifj  Russian Brutality.  San Francisco, August 8.���A  story of Russian brutality,in China  is told by Mrs." Drew, wife of the  British commissioner of customs at  Tien-Tsin, who-.arrived from theJ  Orient on the transport Logan.  She says: "During the bombardment we lived most of the time in  the cellar of our house. Our house  was partially wrecked by big shells.  Sleep was out,of the question most  "of the' time, and so unstrung were  wethafbut little food satisfied ns.  There,was ever present the haunting fear of the.Chinese triumphing  and slaughtering every ��� foreigner  and convert. Some, "probably "all,  of the women were prepared to' act  in case the Chinese affected an entrance, but it appears the allied  officers were also prepared to' act.  I did not know at the" time,' but I  learned later that 10 or 20 men had  been detailed to kill,all,, the foreign  women in case the Chinese were the  victors."-;" ���       ' '       ,  ". Mrs. Drew, witli" inuch"iudigha:  tion, then spoke of the atrocities  committed by Russian troops, saying they pillaged, looted, tortured  and murdered right and left. There  were many infants and children  killed by bayonet thrusts and many  more were tossed from bayonet  point to bayonet point. Tliere is  ample evidence of these unspeakable occurrences. Out from Tien-  Tsin along the Peiho and Yellow  rivers are numerous little villages,  which the Russians' swept through,  destroying life and property. The  Russians also drove women and  children into the Peiho and Yellow  rivers, where they were drowned.  There was no attempt at concealing  any of the remarkably barbarous  conduct. I do not pretend -to say_  "how many women and children  were butchered by the Russians. I  never heard the number estimated,  save thafc a great many had been  bayoneted and some shot.  Saved Many Lives.  San Francisco, August 8.���Captain Frederick Jerome, an old-time  sailor, who had the credit of saving  over 1000 Jives during his career, is  dead in this cifcy. He was born in  southern England in 1823. He was  presented with the freedom of the  city of New York and an elegant  snuff box for saving hundreds of  lives in the wrecks of the Henry  Clay and Ocean Monarch in the  years 1840 and 1848. Captain  Jerome also saved the lives of the  captain of the Lucky Star and his  wife and children, who were  wrecked on the coast of Formosa in  1802. He was especially honored  by a present from queen Victoria  for his heroism in the British channel. He was presented with a gold  medal by the city of Liverpool and  was made a life member of the  Pioneer Society of California by  unanimous vote.  Message from Chaffee.  Washington, August 8.���The  war department received the following cablegram from general  Chaffee: "Che-Foo, August 5.���To  adjutant general, Washington: Pei  Tsang handsomely taken early this  morning by Japanese troops, supported by English and Americans.

There are about 20 car-  loadsof machinery yet^blTtheroad,  and it will .take about two months  after their arrival to get the mill  in operation, so the much desired  event may not be looked for before  the middle of October., The new  high speed crushing rolls and the  dryer for the Republic Reduction  company's mill have not yet come  to hand.

G.  Blaekstock of the War Eagle and  Centre Star Companies, when spoken to regarding the likelihood of an  amalgamation of the two companies, said they were in favor of such  a step, but thought the shareholders of War Eagle would object.  Respecting the opening of the  Crown Point, Mr. Blaekstock said  that it was quite likely true. He  was unable to make any definite  statement as to when the War;  Eagle and Centre Star would resume shipments and dividends.  There has been for some time iu  circulation a story that the Gdod-  erham-Blackstock interest would  buy out the Canadian Pacific Railway's smelter at Trail, or establish  one of their own. When asked  concerning this, Mr. Blaekstock replied that the C.P.R. would not sell  its smelter, and that the Gooder-  ham-Blacksfcock people would not  build a competing plant as long as  the railway company continued to  act fairly in the matter of meeting  the requirements of the camp in  regard to the treatment of low  grade ores.

Bay Stos  The Presbyterian church of Canada has decided to recall all its  missionaries in China save three.  The church . does not propose to  abandon China as a mission field,  but while the army of the allies is  giving the natives a few elementary  lessons in Christianity it is proposed  to give the missionaries of the  church a rest. The three who will  remain in China are William Mc-  Clure, of Montreal; Rev. Murdock  McKenzie, of Montreal; and Rev.  D. McGillvray of Goderich.  The Conservative politicians, who  . have absorbed- all the patriotism  available in the Dominion, are beginning to make it warm for sir  Wilfrid Laurier and some of  his  colleagues.

The naturalization scandal is a disgrace to this province, and as it'  comes within the purview of the  provincial    government    to    deal  therewith, Mr. Tatlow, if he is sincere in his desire to protect white  labor from unfair competition by  _the_^Asiatics,_8hould^devote^-his=  energies towards securing either a  commission, or inducing the government to' make a rigid enquiry into  the whole   matter.

" Follow your ore" is the advice-  an experienced- mining man gives,  says an exchange. That depends.

JAPAN PLAYS THE CINCH  In the Eastern Squabble.  The London Spectator sounds a  note of warning regarding the unquestioning willingness of the Brit-  ���* ish people to leave the work of vindicating civilization to the Japaueso,  and thoir haste to fasten on St.  Petersburg the blame for any failure  on the part of the Mikado's subjects. In supporting its position  tho Spectator contends that the  Japanese government behaved at  least as selfishly as any government  of Europe, much more selfishly than  the British, which obviously obeyed  an uninstructed emotion, that if  tho Japanese authorities had acted  with the humane vigor wliich was  manifested by the British government when it sanctioned admiral  Seymour's rush, and had landed at  onco a complete corps d'arraee, with  orders to cut its way to Pekin or  perish in the attempt, the legations  might have been saved and Pekin  be today awaiting the decisions of  the powers. Japan, however, did  nothing of the kind. On the contrary, she saw in the world's disaster an opportunity for aggrandizement, and refused to move until she  had a guarantee from the powers  that some of her own projects  should be realized and against the  financial losses that such an expedition would entail. This fact,  though now denied, is proved by  the earlier German accounts of the  THE BANK OF  BRITISH;  COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skajjuay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson Gity, N. W. T.  negotiations. In view of the transactions whicli followed her victory  over China, such a hesitation Avas  natural, but it showed that Japan,  like the majority of European states,  is governed by selfish policy and'  not by humane emotion. That being so, she has no claim whatever to  be more, prominent- in the.restora-  tion of order in China than ,'any  other power, and there are grave  reasons why no such claim should  be allowed, ^more especially by  Great Britain. , The prominence  which some persons wish Japan,  under the protection of Great Britain, to assume would inevitably  shatter the concert of Europe.  The Spectator says: "The interests of Russia and Japan are too  irreconcilably opposed for Britain  to be the ally of both. Russia cannot give up her claim to Manchuria,  and will not suffer Korea to become  Japanese, and any alliance of Great  Britain tending to make those two  results more profitable will find in  Russia a determined opponent. She  may-be wrong or right in her view  of her own interests, but this is her  unalterable view, and it is shared  by her whole people. Britain must  choose between Russia and Japan,  between the white power and the  yellow power, ond there is no real  choice between such alternatives.  To choose Japan is to defy Europe.  France is certain to follow' Russia,  not only because the Russian  alliance is now her mainstay in the  politics of the world, but because  Russia can and will give her Yunnan if the Chinese empire'falls to  pieces, and no other power will  spend one life in giving her anything. The German people, and  still more the Austrian people, will  refuse to fight Russia and France  for any colonial gain whatever; and  if they will not fight what is the  value of their alliance? The German emperor has large views in  in China, but he does not want to  carry them out at the price of Russ-  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.

LAY, Manager.  ian hostility when he can further  those views just as easily by adhering to the other side. He took the  side of Russia when Japan was  coerced before, and his natural impulse, while his empire lies, as it  must lie always, between the anvil  and the hammer, must be to side  with Russia. Do the politicians  who in their ignorance are so eagerly pressing a warm alliance with  Japan really wish to see this country left at the end of a great expedition and many sacrifices with all  Europe ranged against her and only  Japan for an effective friend ? It  is very doubtful if America is prepared to fight heartily for any ques?  tion in the far east, except full liberty to trade, whicli Russia would  no more refuse in the Yellow Sea  than in the Black, and quite certain  %hab she will not go heartily into  any war for the benefit of a colored  power. We should be left alone to  fight with both hands for nothing  except the secuurity and aggrandizement of Japan."  The Spectator contends that if  the powers of Europe master China  they will,,at worst, partition her,  and so place her as a nationality  outside the field of politics. But if  Japan masters China she will almost instinctively endeavor to protect her against Europe, will rule  her, and will organize the Chinese  official hierarchy with the strange  ability she has already displayed in  managing her own affairs. That  would mean that a pagan power of  the highest efficiency in utilizing  modern science and capable of a  massacre like that of Port Arthur  would obtain control of the whole  yellow race���that is, of at least four  hundred millions of men, all capable  of discipline, all with hatred of the  white, with resources probably as  great as those of Europe, and with  an ambition as limitless as that of  any previous great power. "What  is to stop," asks the Spectator,  "their rolling over Asia as Genghiz  Khan did, rending India���whi6h  they can enter at will from Thibet  ;or through Nepaul���f rom our grasp,  or planting themselves in Constantinople, thence to threaten the European world ?" ' The Spectator  ���'concludes that Europe ought to do  'her own work,- admitting .Japan  as ��� one only of the six powers ; to  "march to Pekin, and once there  either to make an endurable arrangement with a ,new and wiser  government of China, or, if that  dread necessity must be faced, to  settle a partition which will at least  allow each powerto exert its special faculties unhampered by the  cumbrous, unagreeable, originality-  destroying concert "of Europe. In  that partition Japan, if she does her  share" of the work," must have her  "share of "tlie^buTden or~the rewardr  and even that share may-make the  only pagan power left with brain to  devise and patience to execute great  designs unendurably strong.
