Greenwood, August 15.���Additional mining plant and machinery  is being received at several Boundary Creek mines. Two 100-horse  power horizontal return tubular  boilers, together with fittings,  smokestacks, etc., reached the  Mother Lode mine near Greenwood,  last week. These will supply power  for the 35-drill air compressor and  large hoisting engine now being  manufactured in the East for this  mine.  A 10-drilI air compressor with  Wheeler's surface condenser, an air  receiver, two 80-horse power horizontal return tubular boilers, an  8 by 12 hoisting engine, and other  plant have since been received for  the Knob Hill mine. - With these  also came an S by 12 hoist for the  Old It onsides and a 70-horse power  boiler and two S_\ Little Giant drills  for tbe Snowshoe. These three  mines are neighboring properties  situate in Greemvood camp and all  are being actively developed. The  Knob Hill aud . Old Ii onsides are  under the control of the Miner-  Graves Syndicate and the Snowshoe  i.s owned by an English organization known as the British Columbia  (Rossland and Slocan) Syndicate, of  which Anthony J. McMillan of  Kossland, is managing director  and chairman of the syndicate.  G. S. Waterlow, of the well-known  Loudon publishing house of Water-  low <fc Sons, Limited, is expected to  reach Greenwood next week to visit  the mine, which is being developed  under the direction of J. W. Asfcley,  C. E., consulting engineer to the  syndicate.  The bricklayers have coraplated  the work of arching in the long  dust chamber at the British Columbia Copper Company's smelter neat-  Greenwood. Nearly all the work  that could be done to buildings,  ore bins, trestles, etc., prior to-the  receipt of the sampling and smelting plant lias beeu finished, so thab  the arrival of tlio plant' is" now  being impatiently awaited. -Paul  Johnson, superintendent of the  smelt'cr, should by now be in Canada on liis return from a visit to  Europe.

New York, August 15.���The  American Bible Society has received  a letter from its agent in China,  Rev. John R. Hyker, D. D., dated  Shang-Hai, July 2. He says: "There  has been a strong undercurrent of.  feeling in Shang-Hai for the past  fortnight. Probably 50,000 people  have,left the city. Every steamer  for. the south is crowded. Extra  -.boats had to be put on to accom-  tinodate the passengers. A great  many left on native boats for Soo  Chow and other cities on the grand  canal. For a boat whicli could be  hired in ordinary times for $8 as  much as $75 was demanded and re-  pejyeid. The officials, both native  and foreign? have tried to stampede  but tljey havp only been partially  successful. Two weeks ago we  were practically without protection, except suoh as could be given  by our local volunteer forces, Now  we have 11 men of war in the river  and more are expected. I do not  like to see this panic among the  natives, for among a stolid people  |ike the Chinese it is not without  good cause. There are two other,  to me, ominous signs. The place is  simply over-run with Buddhist  priests. Those wore the forerunners in the north and we fear their  sudden appearance here in large  numbers bodes no good. I find  that a large proportion of them are  from Shan Tung and Chili Li."  IMPORTANT NEWS EXPECTED  REPORTED TO BE IN PEKIN  Russians Act Independently.  London,   August   10.���5   a.in.���  "The   allies are reported to have  reached Pekin Monday," says the  Shang-Hai   correspondent   of  the  Daily   Express,  wiring yesterday.  He adds:     "Chinese official news  confirms this statement but without  details."   A Paris message repeats  this, but the statement, especially  as it emanates from China, must be  accepted with considerable reserve.  Other Londou  morning   papers,  basing their remarks upon  AVashington dispatches, which, with the  exception   of  the foregoing from  Shang-Hai, form the latest news regarding the advance are divided in  opinion,   some   saying   the    allies  must have already reached  Pekin  aud  others   preferring  to   believe  that the relief will not be accomplished uutil the end of the  week.  Telegraphing from Yang Tsung on  August 0th,  a Daily News special  says:7'Sir Alfred Gasclee hopes to  keep. the.enemy running and to follow him  right into Pekin."    Ngan  Ping was occupied without firing a  shot, according to a dispatch to the  Daily   Express   from    that    place  dated   August   11 th.      "It   is   believed," the message   adds,   "that  generals Tung Fuh, Siang  Ma and  Chang     are     entrenched,     40,000  strong, at Tung  Chau.    The allies  may avoid Tung   Chau,  pursuing  the route northwest from Chia Kia  Wan.    Tung  Chau  appears to  be  about twelve niiles from Pekin.  A dispatch to the same paper  from Shang-Hai, dated yesterday,  says the officials profess to be willing to hand over the foreign ministers, their families and servants,  but will not permit tho departure  of native Christians. "The Russian  government," . continues . the telegram, has notified Li Hung Chang  of its willingness to receive M.  Degiers outside the Avails of P^ekin  thus avoiding tho entrance of the  Russian forces. This independent  action is calculated to erabarras the  other powers. Japan demands that  general Yung Lu shall meet the  allies outside the city gates and deliver the ministers and all the native  Christians."  Jimmy Michael Reinstated.  Nkw York, August 15.���The  board of the National Cycle Association today issued- the following :  James Michael having made a satisfactory settlement with the management of jthe Pleasure Beach  track, Bridgeport, Connecticut, aud  also agreeing that the postponed  =race=with=John=^Ne!son==wiIl=take=  place August 22ud, is hereby  restored to good standing, for not  riding to win iu a handicap race  and an attempted deception. Warren  Zurbrick, Buffalo, is suspended  until September 1st, 1900. Lewis  Welderbofer, Minneapolis, having  paid his fine, has been restored to  good standing in tho professional  class. 7  The Yukon Telegraphs.  Victoria, August 15.���H. Gilchin,  iu charge of the supplies of the  public works department in the  Yukon, in an interview, said that  the telegraph system between Atlin  and the outside world would be  completed and in operation by October 1st, and that by the same  time the line which the Dominion  government is to extend from Dawson to Fort Cudahy, on the international boundary between Yukon  Territory and Alaska, on the Yukon, would be ready for use. The  latter will be about fifty miles long.  The system is to be constructed in  the Yukon basin and serving the  chief points of the far north.  Expect Hamilton Soon.  London, August 15.���The war  office has received a dispatch from  lord; Roberts announcing that  colonel Hoare was holding out at  jjiancls river last Friday. Lord  Roberts considers that general  Hamilton's cavalry must now be  within forty miles of Elands river.  Appointed Minister to Teheran.  London, August 15.���Sir A. H.  Harding, British consul general at  Zanzibar, has beeu appointed British minister afc Teheran.  from  allied armies,  told him that  a   very strong  Chinese   army  uii Ulster  Conger, some coining from the consular officers and general Chaffee  besides those which came- direct.  The message transmitted thorugh  minister Wu was entirely deciphered  in the department. During the  course of a conversation today between seoretary Hoot and baron  Speck von Sternburg, the German  charge d'affaires, Mr. Root gained  considerable iu forma tion concerning  the route wliich has yefc to be  traversed by tho  Baron Sternburg  Tsung Chow was  place and if the  should make a stand at this point  the international forces would find  it quite difficult to overcome the  forts and walls. Ifc is expected that  the German force now on its way to  Cliina will land in the vicinity of  Lin Lu wliich is directly east of  Pekin.  The advantages of this point are  found in the fact that ice will not  interfere with the moving and coming of ships with supplies. Word  came early in the day to the navy  department that general Chaffee  reached Towa, about 20 miles from  Pekin. This occurred Fricjay or  Saturday, though the dispatch from  general Chaffee, sent through admiral Renipy, was not sufficiently  definite to locate the exact time of  reaching Towa. But in any event  three or four days have elapsed  since then and there has beeu time  for a still further advance toward  the imperial city.  Ifc was announced, both at the  state and war departments that  any communications from minister  Conger or the United States consuls   concerning  affairs in   Chiua  Rapid Advance of Allies.  Berlin, August 15.���The German  government now admits that the  advance upon Pekiu is well under  way, having received official confirmation by dispatches today. The  foreign office is greatly astonished  at the rapid advauce of the international troops, but surmises that  the Chinese will make one more  desperate stand before the allies  reach the capital.  This evening the Berlin papers  contain   a   statement that prince  von Hohenlohe, the imperial chancellor, is  about to  resign.     As  a  matter of fact, he has taken hardly  any   share   in  Germany's warlike  China  policy,  although under the  terms  of "the constitution  of the  empire the chancellor is responsible  to the nation in that connection.  After diligent inquiry  the  correspondent of the Associated Press is  able to assert that prince von Hohenlohe does not' intend to resign  in the near future.    Several leading papers,  however, express  dissatisfaction at what  they call  emperor William's "personal, regime"  regarding  China   and   the "figure  head ism" of Hohenlohe.   The Berliner Tagoblatt says this condition  of things  gravely injures  the importance of, the chancellor's  office.  All'the papers, including  the Berliner Post,  the Kreuz Zeitung, the  Deutsche Tages  Zeitung,  the Berliner Tagoblatt, the Frankfort Zeitung, the Schlcsis Zeitung  and the  Hanover Courier, demand the summoning of the reichstag iu extra  session. - * "    -   *  The actual dates" when the additional 25,000 men will leave Bremer-  haven for China have now been  fixed. Eight steamers will sail on  August 31st, September 4th and  September 7th, carrying also much  artillery, including howitzers and  shells.  Washington, August 15. ��� The  tension on the Chinese situation is  intense throughout the day, for it  is appreciated by the officials ��� that  the crisis has reached an acute  stage which cannot be continued  niauy hours without bringing word  of momentous importance, changing  either for good or evil the entire  course of events. One of the new  developments today Avas the statement that messages are being received from minister Conger wliich  are not transmitted through any of  the United States officials in China  or through the Chinese minister  here, but direct to the state department. The messages come by way  of Tsi Nan. Some of them can not  be fully deciphered and for this  reason tho statement cannot bo  definitely made that the dispatches  sent by the government to minister  Conger are received by him. Nothing could be learned of the contents of the dispatches received,  although it was stated that there  nvasTqui teTTlttmlbef  Gold Shipments Unprofitable.  New York, August 15.���Foreign  exchange bankers reported today  their inability to obtain from the  Bank of England such concessions  as would make further shipments  from this country now profitable.  A banking houso with important  Paris connections knew of no inducement offered by the Bank of  France to attract gold to that  country by tomorrow's steamer.  Hard Fighting afc Elands River.  Caimo Town, August 15.���A mes-  songer from colonel Hoaro, commanding fche British garrison at  Elands river, who reached Mafeking Tuesday, reported thafc the  garrison was still holding out when  he leffc, although colonel Hoare had  sustained sixty-seven casualties.  General Hamilton wifch a force of  cavalry has been sent to relieve the  garrison.    Started for Pekin.  Berlin, August 15.���An official  dispatch from Taku, dated August  12th, announces that captain Pehl,  command.ing the German warship  Hensaw, and captain Hecht of the  German warship Hertha, have  started for Pekin with 250 men. It  is added that 100 Austrians have  also gone in the same direction.  Missing With $800.  Victoria, August 15.���Eli  Frank, formerly a merchant in Victoria, is missing Avith $800 whicli  he collected in Dawson for Lenz &  Leiser of this city. He failed to  come to Victoria on bis return  from Dawson. The police traced  him to Portland, but lost the trail  there,  would not be made jmblic.   It was  explained that this 'was in no way  due to any desire tp'keep from the  public information lof any important   character,   but ��� was    based  solely on the fact that the crisis involved so many possibilities of extreme hazard to the eight hundred  legationers in Pekin, that the greatest   caution    must    be    observed  against   disclosures'  which   would  further   imperil   those  in danger.  The  actual   developments  of  the  day consisted of  the Remey   dispatch heretofore alluded   to, aud  one from  consul-general Goodnow  at Shang-Hai. ...The state department'declined to make known the  contents of the Goodnow dispatch.  The cipher experts were busy wifch  a dispatch from consul -Fowler, afc  Che Foo, which wa-j so unintelligible that it had td'be returned to  the telegraph  company to be repeated.   So far as could be deciphered it appeared to repeat a message sent   by minister Conger to  Fowler, telling the latter that the  situation was growing more critical  at   Pekin, and   that' the   Chinese  authorities were seeking to compel  the legationers to . leave the city  under Chinese escort.1-    With the  army at Nafcowa, it-is felt that any  one of several conditions might be  presented in the near future.   The  Chinese officials concurred in the  belief   expressed   by   the   Chinese  minister   at   London , that   there  would   be   a   speedy* and   sudden  change and a peace'within the next  few weeks.  On the other .hand, baron Speck  von Sternburg regards Tung Chow,  midway between Natowa and Pekin,  as the real battle ground, and secretary Root; is inclined'to accept this  view. Some of the Japanese officials believe that .when the allies  reached Tung Chow they would  find the city deserted, as it was recalled that the tactics of withdrawal had occurred in" 1860, when  the British-French expedition  reached Tung Chow.  The message of the. French minister at Pekin, M. Fichon, to the  French foreign office was at first  regarded here as identical with the  last Conger message,, which -the  state department has not made  public. But without disclosing the  nature of the Conger message, the  officials made sufficient comparison  between the Pichon and Conger dispatches to show that tliey were not  identical in language or general  statement. On the contrary, it was  clear that each minister was forwarding to his government his own  advices on the situation; and that  there had not been a consultation  between the minister's before the  two dispatches were forwarded.  The arrival of president McKiniey tomorrow is looked, forward to  with great interest in view of the  gravity of the crisis. The presidential party will be here early tomorrow morning, aud an extended  conference between the president,  secretary Root, acting secretary  Adee and others is likely to occur  ej___ly_Ji_Jbliejlay.  TERRIBLE ACCIDENT ON A  Michigan Railroad,  Grand Rapids, Michigan, August  15.���The worst wreck in the history  of the Grand Rapids & Indiana  railroad occurred about 5 a. ra. to-  day, at Pierson, 29 miles north of  Grand Rapids. The northbound  Northland express, which left the  city at 4:05, collided head on with  passenger train No. 2, due here  0 a.m. Nine lives were lost and  many passengers were injured,  some severely. Both engines and  the baggage care were completely  demolished.  When the trains* met, day was  jusfc dawning and the fog was so  thick that the engineers could nofc  see more than 100 yards ahead.  The trains were to. have passed at  Sandlake, two miles south of Pier-  son at 4:53. No. 2 was evidently  late and trying to make the siding.  The Northland express had the  right of way, and was scurrying  .along at nearly full speed. -Either  the engineers blundered in their  orders or were unable to sec signals  on account of fche fog. A telephone  message from Pierson says the engineers and firemen of both trains  were killed as well as five other  persons. . The express train was  made up largely of Pullman cars.  Ifc was the finest train on the  road. They carried a Grand Rapids  coach, a day coach, several sleepers  from Cincinnati and the south and  a Buffalo breakfast car and baggage  cars.  '   ��  ' The killed as far as known are:  W. H. Fish, engineer on the southbound traiu; Gustave Grootveldt,  engineer on the northbound traiu;  M. Letts, conductor of No. 5, and  Levan, baggageman on No. 5. The  .firemen of both engines are supposed to be dead. Six bodies were  taken from the wreck, and it is believed that the bodies of several  others are still buried in the mass  of broken iron and wood.- Eight  persons thought to be fatally injured were taken to a hotel at Pierson. The men are at work endeavoring to reach the dead and injured  who are still imprisoned. Several  physicians accompanied the wrecking train to the scene. The railroad detectives caught several  thieves at work at the scene of the  disaster.  locking and steering. He says of  his associates: "Strange men I  found those people���these off-scour-  ings of the earth. Of course, profane, evil, yet under this rough exterior I found often a marvellous  amount of mental capacity. Poor  fellows! they all wanted to get  away from the life, but they never  did."  Attempt on Chinese Minister.  New York, August 14.���A special dispatch from Paris to the  Evening Telegram today says: An  artful attempt at poisoning by the  use of perfume, whicli recalls memories from Lucrezia Borgia, is exciting all tho gossips of Paris.  Thursday the Chinese minister, Yu  Keng, received a letter. Ifc was  signed Julie Czerwinska, and contained some dried flowers which  the writer asked him to accept.  The secretary of the lcgation,_Arv  mani'de^Pai'mar^peuM^tliT^etter-  and was immediately overcome by  tho deadly odor emanating from  the flowers. He fell in a faint. His  faint was accompanied by sickness  and vomiting, in fact his sickness  had many characteristics of poison  ing, and onlyby prompt treatment  was ho relieved. Mile. Czerwinska  has been arrested. She appears to  be mentally deranged. Before the  examining magistrate*' sho claimed  to be fche victim of a Polish ��� princess, who vowed to tako hideous  vengeance for some mysterious  wrong done her, presumably by tiie  flower-sending Julio, who is being  carefully watched by alienists. The  flowers are being chemically  analyzed. The secretary is slowly  recovering.  To Study "the People."  Boston, August 15.���Rev, Charles  Merriam, of the Highland Congregational church of Lowell, Massachusetts, a Yale graduate and a  former editor of the Yale News, in  an old suit of clothes and a flannel  shirt, with h(s belongings strapped  in a blanket, left his home on May  11 th, and roughed it for three  months, going from Boston to  Portland, Maine, and from there fco  Colorado. He has just returned to  his pulpifc. He mingled with the  laboring folk, working as a deck  hand on a canal boat and resorting  to conventional travel only when he  had to. His aim was to study the  people.  One of his most interesting experiences was on the canals of New  York state. At Troy ho shipped  on an old fashioned mule power  canal boat and went 352 miles.

Victoria,   August   15.���[Special  to   The   Tribune.]���The    principal  event in the legislature today was  the fighfc over the report of the  railway   committee,    which    was.  against granting a  charter for another road through Canadian territory to the Alaskan  coast.     The  governmeufc took the same view on  the ground that ifc was  unwise to  build up American towns on  territory which is in  dispute  between  the   two   countries.     Mclnnes attacked  premier Dunsmuir   to  the  effect that his opposition was thafc  of an interested party, who would  benefit by an all Canadian railway  from a British Columbia port iuto  Atlin, avoiding the border line. The  reprisal   of the  government  is in  line with the position of the Dominion  government.     1'he mining  committee today recommended that  in quartz claims the cost; of a survey,  irrespective of   Avhen  ifc Avas  made, should be allowed as part, of  fche assessment Avork, and thafc delinquent   co-owners   may    be dispossessed by advertisement instead  of by an action in court.

Noy that the estimates have been  brought down it may bo assumed  that the end of the present session  of the legislature is  many respects it will  l'cmarkablo session,  ment faced the house  majority, but it held  in  sight.    In  have been  a  Tho govern-  witli a large  its majority  upon terms, the precise nature of  which are largely a matter of conjecture.     Lieutenant-governor Mclnnes anticipated   the  convention  ���which had been   called   to   meet  at   Vancouver   for the purpose of  deciding upon a leader and forming  a government.      This   convention  ���was united upon one point only���  opposition to Joseph Martin���but  when it came to selecting ministers  for the new government, each and  every member present considered  that he had some special claim upon  a portfolio.   It was to a convention'  of this temper that premier Dunsmuir and his two colleagues   appealed for support.   He received it,  but   upon   terms,   and   the terms  will     be     worked      out    with  the close of the present session.  What will happen after this is a  matter for speculation. The most  probable outcome appears to be the  division of the house upon federal  party lines. As to the desirability  of this, public opinion has very  greatly changed within the past  few weeks. Many who opposed  the introduction of party lines during the recent contest are now prepared to welcome it, and the new  converts to tlio innovation may be  sufficiently strong to bring it  about.  UTILITY OP SECOND   CHAMBERS.  statutory authority, except that of  the supply bill, witli which the second chamber never interferes.  The problem of the day is "not to  check the house of commons, but to  increase the power and authority of  the house of commons, and to prevent its being encroached by the  executive. There is also danger in  the growing tendency of the executive to look beyond the house to the  press, or some other agency, for the  promulgation of public opinion.  The press has, of course, its own  legitimate sphere of usefulness, but  it can never rightly take the place  of parliament, with all its safeguards for full, free and orderly  discussion. Many persons read only  one newspaper, or one class of newspapers, and so never see more than  one side of the case. No matter  how bad a parliament may be,'it  provides a forum where a false  assertion can be instantly denied or  a fallacious argument can be answered. Nothing can take its place,  and it is a matter for regret that  there is a growing tendency to curtail its power and authority and to  increase that of the executive.  A   good  deal   of  the   argument  whicli is advanced in favor of second  chambers as checks is somewhat belated.    It belongs to a time when it  was feared that the democracy, exulting in its newly acquired power,  would elect representatives full of  schemes for upsetting or recasting  the fabric of society.   A senate full  of   sober-minded and   experienced  statesmen would reject these or delay them until the "sober second  thought" of the people would have  time to assert itself.    Such is the  theory, and nothing could be farther-  away from   the facts as Ave find  them today   in  Great  Britaiu,  in  Canada and in the United States.  The check that is required today is  not on legislation, but on executive  power.    Take the   case   of   Great  Britain.    How little has parliament  to do with the great affairs of the  empire, with the goA'ernment of India, with the government of Egypt,  Avith foreign   relations,   with   the  question  of  peace  or  Avar. .  How  helpless is parliament in the face of  such a ��� Situation as has  arisen in  China, where the action of Great  Britain   must   be   determined   by  events as tliey arise.    What member of parliament, however powerful, can arise and say that Britaiu  ought to be allied  AA'ith Germany  against Russia, or the contrary, or  what alliances  ought to be made  when the crisis of tho hour is past?  On all these matters the execu-  -tive-mustHbo���trustee It -pai-liamont-  sorving the purpose only of a forum  for discussion, and able to exercise  its poAver only if it chooses to go so  far as to vote want of confidence in  the executive or to refuse supplies.  Again, if the government Avere to  adopt the rashest and most unwise  measures  in   regard    to  India,  or  Kgypt, err Cliina, or South Africa,  measures which might mean ruin  to the empire, what would be the  checking   value   of   the   house   of  lords?

B., August.10.r--  New Brunswick is notorious as a  supporter of governments and there  is no reason,to.'.believe..thatAit. will.  |'belie its reputation iii the elections  jpwhieh are, now at hand. .-,-Conserya-  ii tives all through the. province are  boasting of their ability,,.to,.hold,  their own, if not jto capture a hostile  constituency or two. '^ They are  merely whistling to keep their  courage up. In,their hearts they  know that the outlook is far from  promising. Well informed Conservatives whose enthusiasm lias not  impaired their judgment, frankly  admit that the opposition, stands no  I chance of making ,a gain, that it  will ;be performing a great feat if it  carries seven of the fourteen seats  and that the probability is for even  less.''..  Wl��ere Blair threatens more than  one Conservative seat ^is, in his abil?  ity to profit from his operations in  the provincial field.

In a provincejwhere  political lines are so faintly drawn,  where .political, principles  aVe all  but obscured, a personal following  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, ,B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  is of great value, and this Hon. A.  G. Blair undoubtedly possessses..  By reason of the double influence  which he can exert as a member of  the Laurier government and former  premier,, of New Brundwick, Blair  will be able to put some powerful  i(Mnd_idates=in=the=fieldf===An���illus-^  tration. of this strength is to be seen  in the report, which may be taken  for reliable, that Dr. Pugsley of St.  John, will contest a constituency in  the Liberal interests. Pugsley is au  able man, suave, plausible, sociable;  "Sweet William," thoy call him.  He was a Liberal in Alexander  Mackenzie's time, a Conservative  while Sir John Macdonald was in  power, and soon after the formation of the Laurier government became a Liberal. Pugsley is a Blair  man, and it will be due to Blair's influence if he enters the field on be:  half of the Liberal. party. .He is  everywhere conceded a strong candidate. He may run in Kings,  Dom ville going into the senate.  This will make for the Liberals a  sure constituency out of one which  otherwise might be placed among  the uncertain. In this manner  Blair will operate all over the province. The strongest men will be induced to take up the fight of the  Laurier government, and this argues  no small success in the Liberal  cause. In the elections of '90 the  Conservatives won nine out of the  fourteen seats. That contest came  off with Blair behind the scenes.  It will be strange if the score is not  more favorable to the Liberal party  in the coming elections, with Blair  fighting in the open, and with all  the influences Ottawa and Frederic-  ton' can command.

Nkw York, August 15.���The  Sun's correspondent at Pretoria  says: "There is a strong, feeling  here that immediate political measures should bo taken to bring the  war, which is now degenerating into  a series of marauding raids to a  close. ,)  "The number of burghers in the  field is certainly diminishing, and  those who are still fighting are held  together partly by compulsion and  partly by a feeling that there is no  sufficient reason why they should  surrender. They are also influenced  to a certain extent-by the. large  numbers of foreign adventurers now  fighting -for them, not. 65 per cent  of whom were in the country before  the war."  The correspondent interviewed  several of the leading- Transvaalers  on this subject, and they expressed,  the opinion that Great Britain  should annex.the country at once.  Reasonable time should then be allowed to the genuine burghers to  surrender their arms. If they failed to do this, the penalty should be  confiscation of their property. Notice should be given to foreign adventurers that any of their class  wifch arms would be sent to prison  for long terms, and any foreigner  using arms wifch fatal effect would  be punished with death.

Day, general agent for  British Columbia for the Imperial  Insurance Company, is in Nelson on  business connected witli his company.  Norman T. Macleod has resigned  \s  his post as sergeant in the local  militia company owing to pressure  of business. The vacancy will be  filled by the promotion of corporal  George M. Phillips. The drill  called for tonight will probably  take the form of a meeting to discuss matters of importance to the  company,   It is generally believed  Messrs. Charles A. Waterman  Co., have received instructions from  Cecil Ward to sell by auction the  whole of the household effects contained in his residence on Kootenay  street. The sale will be held on the  afternoons of Wednesday and  Thursday next.  A. L. Davenport of Spokane has  taken an option on the Keystone  Fractional mineral claim, near Erie,  owned by J. Shuttleworth and C.  C. Ladd of Erie. The consideration is $15,000, $750 of which has  been paid, and the balance from  time to time until a year from date,  when the final payment of $11,250  is due.  - The adjourned meeting of the  city council takes place tonight.  The object of the session is to deal  with the various by-laws now  being put through by the council.  At the city hall yesterday Alfred Hines, who recently purchased  the city stables for $25, was tendered the purchase money by the  city clerk, acting under the instructions of the council. Mr. Hines did  not accept the check and is holding  out for a bonus of $25. When tiie.  sale was made the city intended to  erect new stables at once, but no  date was set for the abandonment  of the old premises.  Messrs. Gamble & O'Reilly are  again offering Hume addition lots  for sale. This property was taken  off the market some time ago in  order to straighten out difficulties  in connection with the survey, but  everything is now in order. Hume  addition lots range in price from  $125 to $350 each, with easy terms  of payment.  Born, on Wednesday evening, to  the wife of E. S. Wadsworth, accountant of the Ontario Powder  Company, a son.  The attendance at the Central  school yesterday was 210. This is  regarded as an excellent showing.  Rev. dean CV Meant of Winnipeg  lectured to the members of Nelson  lodge A. F. & A. M. in the lodge  rooms last night. The fraternity  tinned out in strong forcek and  were rewarded with a splendid address on points of interest to the  craft.  John A. Kirkpatrick returned  yesteiday from a two weeks' visit  at Banff.  Last week John Manderson, who  kept a small grocery store on Hall  street, left town suddenly after  disposing of his stock to second  hand dealers. The case was placed  in the hands of chief Jarvis, who  communicated with the Spokane  authorities and secured Mander-  son's arrest there yesterday on the  charge of 'disposing of his goods  with intent to defraud creditors.  Charles Hyslop was sent after Man-'  ^leTsonTa13d=is^lex^ctM^iir=toHigirt=  with his man.  Mrs. P. McDonald, Miss MeLeod  and Miss Johnson of Fredericton,  New Brunswick, have been spending several days in the city, and  left last night for their home. Miss  Johnson is vice-principal of the  Acadia Seminary at Wolf ville, N.S.,  and Miss MeLeod has the chair of  French and German in the same institution.  T. J. Lendrum came, down from  the Bosun mine last night. He  states that the property is very  promising and that regular shipments of 125 tons monthly are  being made. Forty-five men are at  work, the majority of them being  employed in development work,  the principal feature of which is  five tunnels now under way.  The R. M. R. band had its last  practice last night under the con-  ductorship of Harry Warn bold, the  new leader, for the smoker tonight.  A couple of new features have been  added to the program in the shape  of turns by professor Parker of pen  peddling fame and Dick Burden of  Winnipeg, whose array of diamonds  is now dazzling the eyes of Nelsonites. Both men are exceptionally  clever entertainers.  The rifle association will meet on  Friday night at the armory to discuss the proposed inter-city shoot,  and forward arrangements for the  e /ent.  The Silverton-Nelson football  match arranged for Saturday seems  to be off. The local men invited  the Silvertonians to play here and  it  was  thought  the  match  was  '/'  arranged, but nothing further has  been heard from Silverton and it is  probable the game will be postponed for a week or two. Nelson  has an invitation to visit Silverton  at an early date.  W. A. Thurman and wife and  Robert Carley returned yesterday  from the Winnipeg exposition  which they describe as successful  in many respects. * Mr. and Mrs.  Thurman visited St. Paul and  Minneapolis while away. On their  trip from Regina west they traveled on the train which carried a  mounted police squad 30 strong en  ^route to the Yukon.  The city sewer gang started work  yesterday on Victoria street where  sewers are to be laid from Hendryx  to Cedar streets and Stanley to  Kootenay streets.  The first block of pavement on  Baker street will be almost completed by Saturday. It now requires only a small quantity of fine  material before the rolling process  is commenced and the roller will  probably start work on Saturday.  The tramway company's men began work on the" macadamising of  their Baker street right of way  yesterday. A section of the track  near the corner of Josephine street  is to be raised several inches.  City clerk Strachan has dispatched an invitation to the governor-general, urging his excellency  on behalf of the City of Nelson to  spend a day or two in the city on  his return trip through the province. Some difficulty was met  with in locating the vice-regal  party.  City engineer McCuIloch will  start the city sidewalk gang at  work oh the repairs to the city  wharf shortly. The 65 feet of deck  which floated away at high water  cannot be found aud the stringers  and plank will be replaced by new  material. The work will be neither  costly nor lengthy. '  The militia ���* department has  granted $200 to-.eaeh of the companies of the Rocky Mountain  Rangers for the purpose of improving their rifle ranges. The Nelson company has already expended  about $50 on the strength of the  grant, but the --balance will make  many improvements to the ranges.  A shelter, additional butts and  other features are projected. /  An interesting event took place  last night at the residence of II. A.  Prosser, Victoria .street, when captain Matthew P.
