Parts, August 12.���During manoeuvres of tho French fleet olT Cape  Sfc.* Vincent hist night a collision  occurred between the first-clnss  battleship Brennus, flying the flag  of vice-admiral Fournier, commander of tho fleet, and tho torpedo  boat destroyer Framme. The  Framme sank immediately. The  accident was due to tho fact that  the Framme turned to the right  when ordered to the left. Details  thus far received are very meagre,  but only a small portion of the crew  consisting of four officers and fifty-  six men were saved."  The Framme, which,was of 313  tons displacement, was a recent  addition to the French navy.  Ifc is now knowifthat out of the  'Framme's crew of fifty-six, fourteen were saved. The losses include  captain Mauduit du Plessix, the  second lieutenant and the chief  engineer. Admiral Fournier, in a  dispatch, says that at the time of  the accident the Brennus was  steaming ahead of the Framme on  the leffc. The flagship and the torpedo-boat destroyer were exchanging luminous signals, Avhen the latter approached too near the Brennus. The captain of the Framme  ordered his helmsman to steer 20  degrees to the left while he in-  "creased speed. The man misunderstood or-badly executed the order,  steering to the right, which brought  the descroyor'under the ram of the  Brennus, her frame being cut in  twain.  crawl from under the hatches, and  once the captain found him standing over his bed in the dead of  night, and it took the united  efforts of six men to ��� overpower and return him to  the hold, where he paced about  liko a caged animal, howling and  singing. The crew was panic-  stricken, and throughout the rest of  the voyage to this port they were  under continual strain. Captain  Wagner has been aged twenty  years by his experience.  GABLE RECEIVED FROM HART  SEVERAL PERSONS KILLED  On the Southern Pacific.  -Lake ��� Charles, Louisiana, August 12.���It is reported that several  persons    were   killed,, and   forty  injured by the wrecking this even-  -ing,'four miles'east of. thiscity, at  ��� Iowa   station, of the west bound  , fast passenger train on the South-  - ern Pacific road, leaving here at 5  p.m.   The trucks of the engine-left  the track and the entire train was  ditched.except the sleepers.

Seattle, August 11.���At a meeting of* business men tonight $500,-  000 was pledged for holding an international exposition in this city  in 1904 in commemoration of the  Louisiaua purchase and the Lewis  and Clarke expedition. The plan  differs from that of,any similar  event ever held in .the world, inasmuch as its primary object is the  development of commercial expansion 'and the growth of trans-Pacific trade.        At Sea ,With a Madman.  San   Francisco,   August   12.���  Forty-eight days   at   sea  with   a  =_madman Jias_ mad e cap tain -Wagner, -  of the schooner Czar, a changed  man. First officer Billy Sorenson,  who left here with the Czar on the  19fch of' last May, came ashore a  raving maniac. Ho was sent ashore  late this afternoon to the marine  , -hospital,   after    being   under   the  decks of the Czar in solitary con-  '' flnement for more than a mouth  and a half. Sorenson was apparently in perfect health when the  Czar put to sea, and it was not  ... until the schooner was several hundred miles on the way to Altata,  Mexico, her.destination, that the  mate began to act queerly. Suddenly, when ordered forward by  the captain, he tried to jump overboard, but one of the sailors caught  him. As the - heat increased  he grew worse, and roamed about  the decks at night looking for an  imaginary foe.   Qn^reaching Alfcata,  ; captain Wagner had the madinau  placed-iii the local jail, but that  night he broke out and swam out  to tiie schooner, outs tripping officers  who were in pursuit. -';��� He was  turned ,over to the authorities as  soon as they reached the- vessel,  but a second time he eluded the  jail keepers and pulled himself  aboard the vessel, dripping with  water, just as she was on the point  of sailing. < The crew, learning that  Mexican laws made ifc necessary  to return the poor fellow, to  the United States, became panie-  etricken and deserted in a body.  , Shipping a few Mexicans, captain Wagner placed the madman  uuder hatches and put guards over  Jiim.   Twice Sorenseri" managed to  Anxiety Among Chinese.  Loxnox, August 13.���3.30 a.m.���  "The sooner we can be got, out  of this the better, for it is inconvenient for the Chinese government  and unsafe for ourselves." This is  a message received last evening  from sir Robert Hart, dated Pekin,'  Augusb 5th and sent in cipher to the  Chinese maritime customs oflice in  Londou. Commonting upon it, the  Morning Post says:- '��� It Avould seem  to indicate that the Chinese government is anxious for the safety of  the foreigners, or at any rate, anxious to get them out of Pekin,  while sir Robert Hart evidently  expects that they will get out sooner or later." *  Sheng',' director general of railways and telegraphs, according to  a Shang-Hai despatch to the Standard, expresses grave fears for the  safety of the members of the legations when the defeated Chinese  troops return to the capital.  . The Austrian- naval commander  reports to Vienna that the allies  decided to rest three days after the  taking of Tang Tsun. The dispatch  to a news agency from Tien-Tsin  says: "Junks and" stones block  the river beyond the advanced  posts of the alliesfor a considerable  distance, but the dryness continues  and the country is in good marchT  iiig order, subsidiary dykes having  made.the enemy's damming iheffec-  tiye.f It is believed that some 500  have been added to the expedition  -by the increase in 'the;-numbers' of  the-Brifcish naval brigade. ���; *'  Korea,* according to: a .Seoul' dispatch, consents'to Japan sending  "troops -there to provide' for' emergencies. "���  Washington, August 12.,��� The  United States has made certain  imperative demands upon China,  coupled with a vigorous intimation  that no negotiations will be entered  upon until the Chinese government  shall- have complied with' those  demands.  Washington, August 12.���Minister Wu was an early caller at the  state department today, i Shortly  after 9 o'clock he made an engagement .with acting secretary of state  Adee to meet him at the department at 10.30. Promptly at that  hour the minister's. automobile  stopped at the west entrance tothe  department, and Mr. Wu alighted  and hurried^to secretary .Adee's  office. , He "presented to Mr. Adee a  copy of the imperial edict which he  had received last night. It had  -been���transmitted^to^him-"in���the"  Chinese foreign office cipher, and its  translation and preparation for submission to the department of state  had occupied much of the night.  Minister Wu remained with secretary Adee for three quarters of an  hour discussing the terms of the  edict and tho probable response to  ifc of this government.  Shortly before Mr. Wu left the  department secretary of war Root  joined the two-diplomats, but remained long enough to obtain a  copy of the edict and to discuss it  briefly with the Chinese minister.  Mr.' Wu expressed .the belief that  the edict presented a means of  peaceful adjustment of the trouble  and that the request of the Chinese  government for a cessation of hostilities pending peace negotiations  was entirely reasonable.  Immediately upon the conclusion  of the conference, the text of the  edict, together with the. details of  the call of minister Wu, was communicated to president McKiniey at  Canton.  The president's reply as yet has  not been received. Late in the day  accordingly secretary Adee made  public the text of the edict in the  following statement:  " The department of state makes  public the following imperial edict,  appointing viceroy Li Hung Chang  as enyoy. plenipotentiary to propose ^cessation of hostilities and  to negotiate with the powers, a  copy : of which was delivered by  Mr. Wu to the acting secretary of  state this morning at 10:30.  " An imperial edict, forwarded by  the privy council at Pekin under  date of the 14th of the eighth  moon, (August 8th) to governor  Yuan at Tsan, Shan Tung, who  transmitted it on the 17th day of  the same moon, (August 11th) to  the taotai at Shang-Hai, by whom  it ,was ra-transmitted to minister  Wu, who received it on the  night of the same day (August  11th.  Washington, August 12.���Tho  imperial edict, as transmitted by  the privy council, is as follows: .  " In the present conflict between  Chinese and foreigners there' has  been misunderstanding on the part  of the, nations and also a want of  proper management on the part of  some of the local authorities. A  clash of arms is followed by calamitous results and causes a rup-*  ture of friendly relationship, which  will ultimately do no good to the  world. We hereby appoint Li  Hung Chang as our envoy plenipotentiary, with instructions to  propose at once by telegraph to the  governments of the several powers  concerned for the. immediate ces-c  sation of hostilities, pending negotiations which he is hereby  authorized to conduct for our part  for the settlement of whatever  questions may have to be dealt  with. The questions are to be  severely considered in a" satisfactory manner and the result of the  negotiations reported to us for our  sanction in respect to this.    '.  "The above is respectfully copied  for transmission to your excellency,  "to be communicated to the secretary  of state for his excellency's , information." .   ..,   -While it is conceded, by the  Washington officials that the conference of plenipotentiary authority upon earl Li to negotiate with  the powers for a settlement of existing troubles is a step in the right  direction, it by no means is assured  that the United States government  will consent off-hand to open nego-.  tiations with the distinguished vice-;  roy. -The demands of this government upon China have, been made  ."plainly and" without < equivocation.  They cannot ���',be - ��� misunderstood.  .Assuming that-the Chinese government is 'acting, in/ good faith, the  demands are reasonable and can be  complied'with readily. As transmitted to the imperial1 government  by the'acting' secretary of state,  through minister Wu, the demands  in brief, were:        ",  -That the Chinese government  give assurance .that the -foreign  ministers are ��� alive, and if so,' in  what condition. That ministers be  placed in free communication with  their governments, that firing upon the legations cease, and all dangers to their lives and liberty be  removed. That the imperial authorities place themselves in cornmun--  ication with the relief expedition  .so that the legationers may be liberated, foreigners protected and order restored.  Until these demands have been  acceded to it is regarded as highly  improbable that the government 'of  the United States or any European  government, all of which have  made practically the same demands  up6n~Chiri~a7will corisentTto a "cessation of hostilities," which aro  being conducted, at least so far as  this government is concerned, with  the sole purpose of succoring the  besieged legationers in the Chinese  capital.  Minister Wu is inclined to take  an optimistic view of the situation,  but it can be said authoritatively  that his view is not shared in fully  by the Washington officials. There  is no disposition evident today to  abate by one single jot the demands  which have been made upon China.  A strong hope is expressed, however, that the Chinese government  will accede to the demands eventually, and prehaps very soon. This  hope is based upon the edict appointing earl Li to sue for peace.  To this extent it may be said that  the view of the officials is optimistic: "  No reply, at least no direct reply, has been received yet to the  memorandum transmitted to the  Chinese government through minister Wu by the department of  state. It may be that the demands  contained in the memorandum induced the promulgation of the edict delivered to this government today, but the edict in itself is not accepted as a reply to those demands.  The attitude assumed by the diplomatic representatives of European  governments in Washington is  sufficient evidence that the powers  will press vigorously the demands  which they have made upon the  Chinese government. To Pekin the  allied forces will go, declared Franklin, unless every demand is acced  ed to and all possible reparation is  made by China fp'r the outrages already committed!.  Negotiations, looking to any  other settlei&Bnt"qf the disturbances  in China.Nvili; not be considered  seriously.       , - ���  During the day'the war department officials waited anxiously for  additional news from general Chaffee. One. dispatch received from  him transmitting a message he had  received from' - minister Conger.  Evidently the message had been  delayed long in teaching him and  his own dispatch; was dated four  days ago. . The .'dispatch was as  follows: " Toi-Sun, August"8.���Ad-'  jutant-general, 'Washington: Message received -today:.'Pekin, August 4th. We,.1 will/hold on until  your amval.'^lH,ppe it will be soon.  Send such information as you can.  (Signed,)' -Conger.;.; Chaffee." -  It is presumed" at .the war department that this-message of general  Chaffee's was dated at Yang-Tsun,  and that "an ' error was made in  transmission.,. While the message  of the minister,.- contains nothing  new, it was encouraging to the  ofncials'to'have.renewed assurances  of his ability arid 'determination to  " hold on " untihrelief reached him.  That general Chaffee will communicate to.the besieged minister tidings  ,of hope,and good, cheeiy, if' the  opportunity be afforded him, officials here are certain.]-���;Mr. .Conger's  expression of hope .that the, long-  looked-for' relief; may.' sooni reach  him simply adds"'to the determination of the. government to press  forward to Pekia'as rapidly as may  be possible.    -'  London, August' 13.���Genoral  Grodek'off;reports <to/' the ��� Russian  war office' the occupation of Santo-  hau and the- -passes across-* vfche'  Ching-* a mountains.

The'.receipt of-the message from,  ���the Italian miuister in Pekin effe'ctu-J  -ally disposes of the report that he'  had started-for Tien-Tsin.  ' The Daily "Mail j publishing * an  in fcerview^rwith thf*,: Chinese minister in London, sir-Ohih'-'Chen Lo  Feng'Luh, quotes him-as urging  the foreign ministers'to leave Pekin. " Some people say," remarked  sir Chili Chen, " that the Europeans are still besieged. - It is not so.  When you are besieged you are not  allowed communication with the  outside world, but.here you are receiving messages, cipher messages  from sir Claude MacDonald."  . ' Commenting upon the various  propositions made by Cliina to the  powers, the Daily News will express  the predominating British opinion  as follows: " What the Chinese  authorities say in effect is this���  Stop your advance, on Pekin and  we will give yourJininisters a safe  conduct to Tien-Tsin. If you do  not at once instruct: them to leave  Pekin .we cannot answer for the  consequences."  To this abominable and not_thick--  ly veiled threat there can be only  one answer, and Deleasse has given  it in very   cognent terms.    " The  ministers cannot leave except under  absolutely convincing guarantees of  safety. In the speedy advance of  the allies'lies the only real hope of  saving the ministers."  New York, August 12.���In a dispatch filed at London at 1 o'clock  this morning, Isaac N. Ford, London  correspondent of the Tribune, reviews the Chinese situation as follows: "The Chinese minister in this  city, sir Chili Chen Lo Fang Luh,  made an important statement  yesterday after noon. "He professes  great regret at the foreign ministers refusing to accept the offer of  the safe conduct to Tien-Tsin of the  legations. If this proposal is  definitely rejected and the allied  troops insist in forcing their way  to the capital he suggests, that the  lives of the Pekin foreigners will  again be in the gravest peril, since  the imperial government may find  itself unable to protect them.  "Sir Chih Chen Lo Fang Luh is  also greatly concerned over, the  projected landing of Indian troops  at Shang-Hai. This, he says, will  draw the southern viceroys into the  anti-foreign movement. So far  these pro-consuls have kept quiet,  hoping that the trouble would be  localized in the .north, but if the  foreign armies are to appear in the'  Yang Tse, they will throw in their  lot with the Pekin government and  the agitation will spread throughout the empire.  "The conclusion to which the  Chinese minister comes is that the  Took to the Boats.  Victoria, August 12.���Five of  the crew of the wrecked sealing  schooner Minnie arrived here today, via Seattle, to which port  they were taken from Ounalaska by  the Alliance. They say the vessel  went on a reef off Egomoke island,  seventy miles from Ounalaska, dur-  powers should suspend the Pekin  advance, and should negotiate with  Li Hung Chang, and in this he is no  doubt expressing the opinion of his  government, which  is anxious to  find a way out of its embarrassments through the instrumentality  of the veteran diplomatist who so  often smoothed over previous difficulties     with    foreigners.       The  appointment of Li as plenipotentiary is now confirmed, and it may  be assumed that energetic efforts  will be macle to delay the general  advance   and    especially   private  British action in the central regions.  "Two   other   items   of   Chinese  news of  considerable  significance  must be noticed.   The French minister of marine has received from  admiral Currejoles at Taku a dispatch stating that rumors of further , attacks on. the  legations at  Pekin were current a few days'ago.  The report may be true, or it may  have been   continually fabricated  . by the Chinese authorities in.drder'  to lead- the allied commanders to  believe thafc the march on Pekin  will  be the - death warrant of the  foreigners.   Still more remarkable  is. the   announcement telegraphed  from   St. Petersburg  that- M. de  Giers, the Russian minister at Pekin,  has been authorized by the czar, to  start for Tien-Tsin with the whole  staff of his legation, provided , the  "Chinese   authorities   can   possibly  grant efficient   protection   on, the  journey. : This apparent confidence  ���of the Russian government in Chinese good faith' is  the more extraordinary when it is^considered that  Russia   has   been carrying   on   a  vigorous campaign ou her own account on the Manchurian frontier  and has, already made, important  territorial   acquisitions.    Possibly  the -St. Petersburg   foreign  office  may. hold .that ifc,has sufficiently intimidated , the tsung, li yamen by  this display of -Muscovite energy to  be able to trust its promise that M.  de Giers shall reach Tien-Tsin unharmed.' . , \  " The' foreign office has not'published the text of tho latest message  from sir Claude Macdonald, but explains generally that its. terms are  similar to . those   received   by the  French and other governments from"  their representatives in China.,,^  " Ifc is regarded as curious that  the British admiralty has nofc yet  been able to confirm, the announcement of the occupation of. Yang  Tsung, though the French government has been advised to that effect  by its admiral at Taku, who adds  that the march has already been  -continued in the'direefcion of Pekin."  Washington, August 12.���Tonight secretary Adee, by direction  of president' McKiniey, presented  to minister Wu for transmission to  his government the reply of the.  United States to the imperial edict appointing Li Hung Chang  envoy to negotiate with the powers  for a cessation of hostilities. The  text of the reply will not be made  public until tomorrow. In effect,  however, ifc is a reiteration of the  demands previously made by the  United States upon China.  Washington, August 12.���Indi-  cations-of-the desire-of-China��� for  a peaceful settlement of her present difficulties have been multiplying for several days. Official  evidence of that "desire was presented to the department of state  today. It was in the form of an  edict promulgated by emperor  Kwang himself appointing earl Li  Hung Chang as envoy plenipotentiary to negotiate with tlio powers  for an immediate cessation of hostilities, pending a solution of problems which have grown out of anti-  foreign uprisings in tho empire.  Earl Li is to act directly for the  emperor, and a fair inference is  that whatever the terms of settlement he may reach with the powers  will be approved by the imperial  government.  During the day only one dispatch  was made public from among any  of the government dispatches from  China. A belated message from  minister Conger was transmitted to  the war department by general  Chaffee. It expressed simply his  ability to hold on until general  Chaffee should come to his relief.  AU the power of this government  will be exerted to get that relief  to him and to other imprisoned  legationers at the earliest possible  moment.  ing a gale on July 26th. The crew  took to the boats, Two boats and  nine canoes full of men were picked up by the schooner Walter L  Rich, but there not being room for  all on board that vessel, one boat  with five men made for Ounalaska. They were two and a half  days in an open boat before reaching there, having nothing to eat  but hard tack. The captain and  others left on the Walter L Rich  which carried them to Ounalaska.  The Minnie broke up twenty-four  hours after she struck.  BOUNDARY'S NEW SMELTER  ^m_^~~___mm_______m. "*  J. * f      . '  Quebec Capital Behind It.

San Francisco, August 12��� Dr.  John Freyer, professor of Chinese  in the university of California, arrived tonight from Shang-Hai on  the steamer -Gaelic. Professor  Freyer for many years was connected with the imperial Chinese  government. In many foreign matters, and particularly in all questions of'international law, the Chinese statesmen look upon him as an  authority. Officially Dr. Freyer is  a high mandarin of the empire and  holds the third degree brevet civil  rank. He stands closest to the  great viceroy of Nan King, at whose  hands he received the order of the  sacred dragon last summer/and  who appears friendly to the foreigners iu the present troubles.  Professor Freyer would make no  statement tonight on the present  situation in China.  ���    -**tf  :���--������������'.  ���'7'-V':-   Ayv-7*':V-;       -���������:\t!-- '. .    ..*      '   -Jrt*^^���* +*4*+__---_��.>i,.-f*r-*_t_-i_'!__m _*<* ii^,igia^-.JriilaftWft^"*Wtti;^'J��  ���71 U'l'-.-VJ-  if,-'  I-'* *  THE TRIBUNE: NELSOK, B.

As soon as he arrived on tho platform with his  seconds he. walked around and  looked at the gloves, walked over  to his corner and watched Fitz  carefully. The bell at this time  was announcing the fight.  When Fitz stripped it was seen  that he wore flesh-colored trunks.  Fitz occupies the southwest corner  of the ring. Ruhlin was in the  northwest angle. While Ruhlin  strips in great condition both; men  wear bandages on their hands.  "While the men were adjusting  their raits, the announcer. spoke of  John L.

Paris, August 12.���During manoeuvres of tho French fleet off Cape  Sfc.*'Vincent last night a collision  occurred between the first-clnss  battleship Brennus, flying the flag  of vice-admiral Fournier, commander of tho fleet, ancl tho torpedo  boat destroyer Framme. Tlio  Framme sank immediately. The  accident was due fco tho fact; thafc  the Framme turned to the right  when ordered to the left. Details  thus far received are very meagre,  but only a small portion of the crew  consisting of four officers and fifty-  six men were saved.  The Framme, which was of 318  tons displacement, was' a recent  addition to tho French navy.  Ifc is now kuowri'that out of the  "Framme's crew of fifty-six, fourteen were saved. The losses include  captain Mauduit du Plessix, the  second lieutenant and the chief  engineer. Admiral Fournier, in a  dispatch, says that at the time of  the accident the Brennus was  steaming ahead of the Framme on  the left. The flagship and the torpedo-boat destroyer were exchanging luminous signals, when the latter approached too near the Brennus. The captain of the Framme  ordered his helmsman to steer 20  degrees to the left while he increased speed. The man misunderstood or badly executed the order,  steering to the right, which brought  the destroyer'under the ram of the  Brennus, her frame being cut in  twain.  crawl from under the hatches, and  once the captain found him standing over his bed in the dead of  night, and it took the united  efforts of six men to overpower and return him to  tho hold, where he paced about  like a caged animal, howling and  singing. The crew was panic-  stricken, and throughout the rest of  the voyage to this port they were  under continual strain. Captain  Wagner has been aged twenty  years by his experience.

At Sea-.With a Madman. ��  San  Francisco,   August   12.���  Forty-eight days   at   sea  with   a  __madman=has-madecapfcain-Wagner,-  of the schooner Czar, a changed  man. First officer Billy Sorenson,  who left here with the Czar cm the  19th of last, May, came ashore/a  raving maniac. He was sent ashore  late this afternoon to the marine  . hospital, after being under the  decks of the Czar in solitary confinement for more than a month  . and a - half. Sorenson was apparently in perfect health when the;  Czar put to sea, and it was hot'  until the schooner was several hundred miles on the way to Altata,  Mexico, her destination, that the  mate began to act queerly. Suddenly, when\ ordered forward ' by  the captain, he tried to jump overboard, but one of the sailors caught  him. As the * heat increased  he grew worse, and roamed about  the decks at night looking for an  imaginary foe.   On.reaching Altata,  : captain Wagner had the madman  placed- in the local jail, but that  night he broke out and swam out  to the schooner, outs tripping officers  ���who were in pursuit. . He was  turned ,over to the authorities as  soon as they reached the- vessel,  but a second time he eluded the  jail keepers and pulled himself  aboard the vessel, dripping with  water, just as she was on the point  of sailing. The crew, learning that  Mexican laws made it necessary  to return the poor fellow , to  ifche United States, became pahic-  etricken and deserted in a bodyv  , Shipping a few Mexicans, captain Wagner placed the madman  uuder hatches and put guards over  Jiim. .Twice Sorensen' managed to  Anxiety Among Chinese.  London, August 13.���3.30 a.m.���  "The sooner we can be got out  of this the better, for it is inconvenient i'or the Chinese government  and unsafe for ourselves." This is  a message received last evening  from sir Robert Hart, dated Pekin,  August 5th and sent in cipher to the  Chinese maritime customs oflice in  Londou. Commenting upon it, the  Morning Post says: '��� It would seem  to indicate that the Chinese government is anxious for the safety of  the foreigners, or at any rate, anxious to get them out of Pekin,  while sir Robert Hart evidently  expects that they will get out sooner or later."  Sheng, director general of rail-  waysand telegraphs, according to  a Shang-Hai despatch to the Standard, expresses grave fears for the  safety of the members of the legations -when the defeated Chinese  troops return to the capital.  The Austrian- naval commander  reports to Vienna that the allies  decided to rest three days after the  taking of Yang Tsun. The dispatch  to a news agency from Tien-Tsin  says: "Junks and" stones block  tiie river beyond the advanced  posts of-the allies for a considerable  distance, but the dryness continues  and the country is in good marching order, subsidiary dykes having  made the enemy's damming ineffective.^ It "is-believed that some 500  have been added to the expedition  by- the increase in ^the,; numbers of  ,the. British naval brigade. - '��� *'"  Korea,- according to, a,. Seoul- dispatch, consents- to Japan sending  troops there-to "provide" for' emergencies. '       '  Washington, August 12. ��� The  United ' States has made 'certain  imperative demands upon China,  coupled with a vigorous intimation  that no negotiations will be entered  upon until the Chinese government  shall- have complied with those  demands.  Washington, August 12.���Minister Wu was an early caller at the  state department today. Shortly  after 9 o'clock he made an engage-  ment.wifch acting secretary of state  Adee to meet him at the department at 10.30. Promptly at that  hour the minister's. automobile  stopped at the west entrance to the  department, and Mr. Wu alighted  and hurried., .to . secretary .Adee's  office.., He presented to Mr. Adee a  copy of the imperial edict which he  had received last night. It had  -been���transmitted-to=_him ih~~tlie~  Chinese foreign office cipher, and its  translation and preparation for sub-,  mission to the department of state  had occupied much of the night.  Minister Wu remained with secretary Adee for three quarters of an  hour discussing the ternis of the  edict and the probable response to  it of this government.  Shortly before Mr. Wu left the  department secretary of war Root  joined the two- diplomats, but remained long enough to obtain a  copy of the edict and to' discuss it  briefly with the Chinese minister.  Mr.' Wu expressed\the, belief that  the edict presented a means of  peaceful adjustment of the trouble  and that the request of the Chinese  government for a cessation of hostilities pending peace negotiations  was entirely reasonable.  lm mediately upon the conclusion  of the conference, the text of the  edict, together with the. details of  the call of minister Wu, was communicated to president McKiniey at  Canton.  The president's reply as yet has  not been received. TLate in the day  accordingly secretary Adee made  public the text of the edict; in the  following statement:... .  " The department of state makes  public the following imperial edict,  ^appointing viceroy Li Hung. Chang  as envoy plenipotentiary to prb-  !pose a "cessation of hostilities and  to negotiate with the powers, a  copy of which was delivered by  Mr. Wu to the acting secretary of  state this morning at 10:30.  " An imperial edict, forwarded by  the privy council at Pekin under  date of the Hth of the eighth  moon, (August Sfch) to governor  Yuan at Tsan, Shan Tung, who  transmitted it on the 17th day of  the same moon, (August 11th) to  the taotai at Shang-Hai, by whom  it was ra-transmitted to minister  Wu, who received it on the  night of the same day (August  Uth.  Washington, August 12.���Tho  imperial edict, as transmitted by  the privy council, is as follows: .  " In the present conflict between  Chinese and foreigners there ' has  been misunderstanding on the part  of the, nations and also a want of  proper management on the part of  some of the local authorities. A  clash of arms is followed by calamitous results and causes a rupture of friendly relationship, which'  will ultimately do no good to the  world. We hereby appoint Li  Hung Chang as our envoy plenipotentiary, with instructions to  propose at once by telegraph to the  governments of the several powers  concerned for the immediate cessation of hostilities, pending negotiations which ��he ' is hereby  authorized to conduct for our part  for the settlement of" whatever  questions may have to be dealt  with. The questions are to be,  severely considered in. a satisfactory manner and the result of the  negotiations reported to us for our  sanction in respect to this.     ,"  "The above is respectfully copied  for transmission to your excellency,  to be communicated to the secretary  of state for his excellency's information." t  While it is conceded by the  Washington officials that the conference of plenipotentiary authority upon earlJLi to negotiate with  the powers for a settlement of existing troubles is a step in the right  direction, it by no means is assured  that the United States government  will consent off-hand to open negotiations with the distinguished viceroy. The demands of this govern-  .ment upon China have been made  ���plainly and without equivocation.  They cannot be misunderstood.  Assuming that-the Chinese government is acting in good faith, the  demands are reasonable and can be  complied*with readily. As transmitted to the imperial government  by the acting' secretary of state  through minister Wu, the demands  in brief, were:  That the Chinese government  give assurance that the foreign  ministers are alive, and if so, in  what condition. That ministers be  placed in free communication with  their governments, that firing upon the legations cease, and all dangers to their lives and liberty be  removed. That the imperial authorities place themselves in communication with the relief expedition  so that the legationers may be liberated, foreigners protected and order restored.  Until these demands have been  acceded to it is regarded- as highly  improbable that the government 'of  the United States or any European  government, all of which have  made_practically the same demands,  upon China, will consent to a "cessation of hostilities," which are  being conducted, at least so far as  this government is concerned, with  the sole purpose of succoring the  besieged legationers in the Chinese  capital.  Minister Wu is inclined to take  an optimistic view of the situation,  but it can be said authoritatively  that his view is not shared in fully  by the Washington officials. There  is no disposition evident today to  abate by one single jot the demands  which have been made upon China.  A strong hope is expressed, however, that the Chinese government  will accede to the demands eventually, and prehaps very soon. This  hope is based upon the edict appointing earl Li to sue for peace.  To this extent it may be said that  the.view of the officials is optimistic.- "  No reply, at least no direct re-,  ply, has been received yet to the  memorandum transmitted to the  Chinese government through minister Wu by the department of  state. It may be that the demands  contained in the memorandum induced the promulgation of the edict delivered to this government today, but the edict in itself is not accepted as a reply to those demands.  The attitude assumed by the diplomatic representatives of European  governments in Washington is  sufficient evidence that the powers  will press vigorously the demands  which they have made upon the  Chinese govern ment. To Pekin the  allied forees will go, declared Franklin, unless every demand is acced  ed to and all possible reparation is  made by China fpV the outrages already committed.  Negotiations looking to any  other settle^ent'qf the disturbances  in China ^wilP not be considered  seriously.  During the day the -war department officials waited anxiously for  additional news ,from general Chaffee.   One   dispatch   received from  him transmitting a message he had  received   from - minister    Conger.  Evidently the-message  had   been  delayed long in teaching him and  his own dispatch; was dated, four  days   ago.   The ^dispatch 'was  as  follows:   " Toi-Sihi, August8.���Ad-'  jutant-general, ''Washington:   Message received  today: 'Pekin, August   4th.   We,> will --hold on   until  your arrival. -r^Hope it will be soon.  Send such information as you can.  (Signed,)" Conger.:    Chaffee."  -   It is presumed" at .the war department that this me^sag9 of general  Chaffee's was dated at Yang Tsun,  and   that'an ' error was made in  transmission., While the message  of the minister,; contains  nothing  new,   it was   encouraging   to the  officials to'have.renewed assurances  of his ability and -determination to  " hold on " until-relief i*eached him.  That general Chaffee will communicate to the besieged minister tidings  of  hope and good   cbeeiy if' the  opportunity be afforded him, offic-*  ials here are certain.-,Mr.",Conger's  expression of hope that the loug-  looked-for relief., may 'soon reach  him simply adds to the determination of the government   to press  forward to Pekin ?as rapidly as may  be possible.  p'*'  London, August' 13.���General  Grodekoff. reports vto'the Russian  war office the occupation of Santo-  hau and the -passes across'.fvthe  Chingaa mountains. Orders,',have  been issued for the^ formation - of  two additional Siberian army corps.  A semi-official Shang-Hai telegram^  published in St/-- Petersburg,^ describes the sending of British troops  to Shang-Hai as "..without the least  necessity."      ' '"-^ '  The'receipt ofithe message from  the Italian miuister in Pekin effectually disposes of the report that he  had started for Tien-Tsin.  The Daily ''Mail '^publishing * an  interview, with 'thfyChinese minister in' London, sir- Ohih , Chen Lo  Feng Luh, quotes him as urging  the foreign ministers to leave Pekin. " Some people say," remarked  sir Chili Chen, " that the Europeans are still besieged. - It is not so.  Whenyou are besieged you are not  allowed communication Avith the  outside world, but here you are receiving messages, cipher messages  from sir Claude MacDonald."  ' Commenting upon tbe various  propositions made by China to the  powers, the Daily News tyill express  the predominating British opinion  as follows: " What the Chinese  authorities say in effect is this���  Stop your advance on Pekiu and  we will give your ^ministers a safe  conduct to Tien-Tsin. If-you do  not at once instruct them to leave  Pekin we cannot answer for the  consequences."  - To this abominable and nofc thickly veiled threat there can be only  one answer, and Deleasse has given  it in very cogneut terms. " The  ministers cannot leave except under  absolutely convincing guarantees of  safety. In the speedy advance of  the allies'lies tho only real hope of  saving the ministers."  New York, August 12.���In a dispatch filed at London at 1 o'clock  this morning, Isaac N. Ford, London  correspondent of the Tribune, reviews the Chinese situation as follows : " The Chinese minister in this  city, sir Chih Chen Lo Fang Luh,  made nn important statement  yesterday afternoon. Ale professes  great regret at the foreign ministers refusing to accept the offer of  the safe conduct to Tien-Tsin of the  legations. If this proposal is  definitely rejected and the allied:  troops insist in forcing their way  to the capital he suggests that the  lives of the Pekin foreigners will  again be in the gravest peril, since  the imperial govern ment may find  itself unable to protect them.  "Sir Chih Chen Lo Fang Luh is  also greatly concerned over, the  projected landing of Indian troops  at Shang-Hai. This, he says, will  draw the southern viceroys into the  anti-foreign movement. So far  these pro-consuls'have kept quiet,  hoping that the trouble would be  localized in the -north, but if the  foreign armies are to appear in;the"  Yang Tse, they will throw in their  lot with the Pekin government and  the agitation will spread throughout the empire.  " The   conclusion   to -which the  Chinese minister comes is that the  powers should suspend the Pekin  advance, and should negotiate with  Li Hung Chang, and in this he is no  doubt expressing the opinion of his  government, which  is anxious to  find a way out of its embarrassments through the instrumentality  of the veteran diplomatist who so  often smoothed over previous difficulties    with    foreigners.       The  appointment of Li as plenipotentiary is now confirmed, aud it may  be assumed that" energetic efforts  will be made to delay the general  advance   and    especially   private  British action in the central regions.  "Two   other   items   of   Chinese  news of  considerable   significance  must be noticed.   The French minister of marine has received from  admiral  Currejoles at Taku a dispatch stating that rumors of further attacks on. the   legations at  Pekin were current a few days ago.  The report may be true, or ifc may  have been   continually fabricated  by the Chinese, authorities in order  to lead the allied commanders'to  believe that the march on Pekin  will be 'the death warrant of the  foreigners.   Sfcill more remarkable  is fche   announcement telegraphed  from   St., Petersburg   that   M. de  Giers, the Russian minister at Pekin,  has been authorized by the czar to  start for Tien-Tsin with the,whole  staff, of his legation, provided the  Chinese   authorities   can   possibly  grant efficient   protection   on the  journey.   This apparent confidence  of the, Russian government in Chinese good faith is the more extraordinary when it is considered that  Russia   has   been carrying   on   a  vigorous campaign ou her own account on the Manchurian frontier  and has already made important  territorial   acquisitions.     Possibly  the   St., Petersburg  foreign  office  may hold that it has sufficiently intimidated ..the tsung, li yamen by  this display of Muscovite energy to  be able,to trust its promise that M.  de Giers shall reach Tien-Tsin unharmed, o    ,  " The.foreign office has not published the text of tho latest message  from sir Claude Macdonald, but explains generally that its terms are  similar to those received by the  French and other governments from  their representatives in China., ���  "It is regarded- as curious that  fche British admiralty has not yet  been able to confirm the announcement of the occupation of Yang  Tsung, though the French government has been advised to that effect  by its admiral at Taku, who adds  that the march has already been  continued in the direction of-Pekin."  Washington, August- 12.���Tonight secretary Adee, by direction  of president McKiniey, .presented  to minister Wu for transmission to  his government the reply of the  United States to the imperial edict appointing Li Hung Chang  envoy to negotiate with the powers  fora cessation of hostilities. The  text of the reply will not be made  public until tomorrow. In effect;,  however, ifc is a reiteration of the  demands previously made by the  United States upon China.  Washington, August 12.���Indi-  cations-of-the_desizre���of"China for  a peaceful settlement of her present difficulties havo been multiplying for several days. Official  evidence of that desire was presented to tho department of state  today. It was in the form of an  edict promulgated by emperor  Kwang himself appointing earl Li  Hung Chang as envoy plenipotentiary to negotiate with the powers  for an immediate cessation of hostilities, pending a solution of problems which have grown out of anti-  foreign uprisings in the empire.  Earl Li is to act directly for the  emperor, and a fair inference is  that whatever the terms of settlement; ho may reach with the powers  will be approved by the imperial  government.  During the day only one dispatch  .was made public from among any  of the government dispatches from  China. A belated message from  minister Conger was transmitted to  the war department by general  Chaffee. It expressed simply his  ability to hold on until general  Chaffee should come to his relief.  All the .power, of this government  will be exerted to get that relief  to him and to other imprisoned  legationers at the earliest possible  moment.  ing a gale on July 26th.

Officially Dr. Freyer is  a high mandarin of the empire and  holds the third degree brevet civil  rank. He stands closest to the  great viceroy of Nan King, at whose  hands he received the order of the  sacred dragon last summer, and  who appears friendly to the for-.  eigners in the present troubles.

That Mr.  Cotton would make a much better  run than sir Charles Hibbert Tupper  is generally conceded, but much depends upon the action taken by the  labor party. * Through its organization the labor party is in a measure committed, to an independent  course,1-with ��� straight labor candi-  -dates-in-all���urban-constituencies,  but whether this course will be. followed is not known.

AS  OTHERS. SEE  IT.  Greenwood Elinor.  The delegates to the associated  boards of trade of Kootenay and  Yale cannot be congratulated upon  their    -choice     of    a    president.  Although J. Roderick Robertson is  doubtless a man of some ability, he  cannot be looked upon as a safe  person in the position to which he  has just been elected.   It is presumed that the intention in forming   this   association was   that it  should   be   representative   of   the  business   interests   of the mining  districts of Yale and Kootenay. In  such   a body the agitator should  have no place.   Mr. Robertson, as  president   of   the    mine   owners'  association, is credited with being  the cause of much of the bitterness  engendered   between * mine owner  and miner in the past two years,  and his election cannot be taken in  any other way than that the delegates at Nelson intended to throw  down the gauntlet to the working-  men of the district.    One .of the  primary objects of the association  should have been to endeavor to  settle any little differences between  mine'owner and miner, but they  have taken the opposite course by  electing Mr. Robertson as president.  The position gives to a person, who  is a very common variety of the  character known as an agitator, a'  certain prestige with legislators and  others outside the district that may  mar   the   harmony   now   existing  between employer and employee in  the   mining   camps   of ,Yale   and  Kootenay.     *-'   * .-  Barrington Exonerated.

Ford in his cable letter to  this morning's Tribune as follows:  " Iu spite of the escape of Dewet  aud Delarey's clever capture of an  outlying.^ garrison' of Australians  and Rhodesians near Eland's river,  the Boer armies seem to be gradually /reaching the end of their  tether. ,It is thought now.that  Dewet, having eluded Methuen and  Kitchener, will slip across the British lines either north or south of  Pretoria arid join general Botha,  but as Buller is steadily pushing  back the latter leader from the  south, and-,as; lord Roberts has  cleared theTFree State, he will have  a large part of his force available  to operate from the southwest.  VThe process of rounding up  both column's between Lydenburg  and the Portuguese frontier ought to  bev accomplished. Lord Roberts'  greatest difficulties are a twofold  disease working sad havoc among  his soldiers, who are suffering-worse  than ever from enteric fever and  dysentery. Still more formidable  are the plots of disaffection., and  guerrilla warfare' which confront  him everywhere, even in districts  under British occupation.  " The hews of the Pretoria conspiracy Has provoked a tremendous outburst of wrath in London  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay; U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and-Dawson City, N. W. T.  society   and   in   the   press.    Lord  Roberts   has been severely criticized^ for some' time foi- the' excessive leniency with which he has  treated the  so-called Boer rebels,  and this incident is held to justify  all that has beerrsaid on the. subject.     Several   Unionist   journals  exhort the commander-in-chief to  take-drastic   measures;   iri   other"  words   to   do   aJ   little    shooting,  burning and confiscating.   A leading South African expert tells me  that nothing will bring the Boer  farmer   to   obedience   but   a well  grounded belief that his land will  be seized   and his house fired   if  he continues to resist, but others  Transvaal 'pretty  though treachery  must    be  sternly  promiscuous    violence  its   own   object.   The  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager.  E. Hay, Inspector.  who   know the  well   say   that  and conspiracy  punished,  will defeat  South     African     Dutchman   cannot be dragooned into submission."  New York, August 12.���Relative  to the Pretoria plot, -Mr. Ford says  in this morning's Tribune, in a  despatch filed at1 a- m. from London :  ' "An official telegram from lord  Roberts confirms the reports of the  Pretoria plot,'5but its brief and contemptuous terms seem to indicate  that the scheme, was the mere  bungling project of a few hair-  brained adventurers rather than a  deep and formidable conspiracy..  Tibrd Roberts says the ringleaders  and all concerned are now under  arrest, and doubtless a severe  example will be made of them.  "Lord Roberts, however, makes  no reference to the alleged atrocious  design to perpetrate a wholesale  massacre of British officials, so that  the curious exhortations of some of  the London newspapers to the commander-in-chief to abandon his  policy of leniency may turn out to  be wide of the mark. Guerrilla warfare cannot be waged with great  leniency, but lord Roberts must be  aware that his main business is not  Nelson Branoh���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street   '       J. M. LAY, Manager.  to hang so-called rebels and burn  farm houses, but" to corner general  Dewet, suppress Botha- and- seize  heavy guns, which' so far have been  persistently kept out of his reach."  -  Fire at Glens Falls.  Glens Falls, New York, August  -12.���Themost.destructive-fire since  the buring of the Glens Falls Port-,  land Cement  Company's works a  year ago, occurred early this morning and resulted-in a loss of over  $100,000, partly covered by insurance.   The   fire   originated in the  work room of Heffron & Lineham,  shirt manufacturers, occupying the  third floor of the A. S. Rugge collar  and cuff factory, and spread from  there to the building occupied by  the   Glens   Falls  electric and gas  company and D. Robertson ��fc Co.,  manufacturers of shirts and ladies'  waists.     The   Central   house,   the  Park hotel and the McGregor Park  music hall were then attacked by  the flames.   Several smaller buildings were also destroyed.   That no  loss of life occurred is remarkable,  as the hotels were crowded with;  guests who are here to attend' the  grand circuit meeting which opens  tomorrow.   As  the electric 'plant  destroyed supplied the town with  street   lights the   city   will be   in  darkness until -some temporary . arrangements can be made.   Nearly  300 operatives and employees will  be thrown out of employment.  Train Struck an Omnibus.  Slatington, Pennsylvania, ;Aug-  ust*12.���A passenger train on the  Lehigh & New England railroad  ; struck an omnibus containing  twenty-five persons at Benniger's  crossing, about three miles east of  here. Most of the passengers were  instantly killed, and the remainder  probably fatally injured. The injured were immediately conveyed  to St. Luke's hospital. South Bethlehem, on a special train.

She visited the  lad on Saturday and Sunday.  Young Chenowith is isolated from  the older prisoners, and the gaol  officials state that he conducts himself in a quiet, orderly manner.

R. construction department issued notices  offering' $1.75 to $2.25 per day for  laborers to .work on the tracklaying  outfit at Procter. As the uniform  scale before the strike was $1.75  tKe amended offer is somewhat in  the. nature of a' concession. The  company was to have sent a gang  to Procter this morning,'but so far  as could be learned did not .succeed  in securing any men.  A. H. Gracey left for. East Kootenay last night in the interests of  the Imperial Development Syndicate.  E. A.

The Northport ball team narrowly escaped a coat of whitewash at the hands of the Nelson  nine yesterday. v.The home team  scored in six innings for an aggregate of 14 runs, while the visitors  made a single tally in the last innings. About 300 people witnessed  the match, which "was too one sided  to be exciting. The spectators  derived considerable satisfaction,  however, in seeing the Nelson  players put up a fast, snappy  game. While 7 their opponents  were not dangerous at any stage of  the game and were -obviously outclassed, it may be stated- to their  credit that the' Northport men  played hard, did no kicking, and  altogether conducted themselves in  a sportsmanlike manner.  * Nelson started the ball rolling  in the first innings with ��� three  runs. The second added two to  the .tally - and',the third and fourth  contributed "singles, while the seventh added seven to the total. In  the fifth, sixth; eighth and ninth  Nelson was shut out. Northport  was shut out up to the ninth when  Stone scored through a single, two  passed balls and. Mills' error.  A feature of "the game was  Welluer's pitching. Thirty-two  Northport men went to,bat in the  game and eighteen of them struck  out. He had good support in the  field and held the visitors down  to five hits scattered all over the  game. Olsen had eight strike outs  butwas hit twelve times and the  hits were bunched. However his  support was not calculated to inspire a pitcher.  \* - The score"was as follows:  ESTABLISHED 1892  Sc  HARDWARE  CO.  ESTABLISHED 1892  Garden, Mill, Steam  Hose.
