NELSON:  FRIDAY MORNING AUGUST 17 1900  PRICE MVE CENTS  I  fi  Ll HUNG CHANG'S APPEAL  Wants Advance Stopped.  Washington, August 10.���The  department of state makes public  tonight the communications exchanged today between the Chinese minister, Mr. Wu and the acting secretary, of state. The following memorandum was handed to  Mr. Adee by Mr. Wu at 8 o'clock  this morning: "A cablegram from  Li Hung Chang, envoy plenipotentiary of China, dated August 15th  and received by minister0 Wu at  " p.m.   The allied forces are ap  proaching Tung Chow. I have  memorialized the imperial government to depute an armistice with  the several commanders on the  spot. 1 will also shortly proceed to  Pekin.  '���The powers being fully aware of  the embarrassing position in which  their majesties, the empress dowager and the emperor, are placed,  are earnestly requested to telegraph instructions to their respective ..'commanders to stop their  further advance to the capital so as  not to cause alarm and fear to their  majesties and calamities to the  people. For such an advance would  shake tho foundations of the  Chinese empire and wound the  feelings of all her people, high and  low. Please communicate this  cablegram at once to the secretary  of state." "  The followng memorandum iu  reply Avas handed to Mr. Wu this  afternoon : "Forseeing that there  would bo insufficient time after receiving a reply to our memorandum  of August 12th, to get instructions  to the relief column before it had  reached I'ekin, wo sent on the same  day to the general commanding the  American forces in China the following dispatch:  " 'Adjutant-general's office, AVasli-  ingtou, August 12th.���Fowler, Che-  Foo for Chaffee, r Tho secretary, of  war directs me to inform you that  Li Hung Chang, appointed, by the  Chinese government to negotiate  Avith the powers, requests the cessation of hostilities.

Wo have communicated  this to all the powers. The Japanese  government take's the same position. Wo have not heard from the  other poAvers.   (Signed) Corbin.'  "Two days ago, in vieAv of the  rapid progress of the relief expedition,   AA*e    sent    the    folloAving:  'Fowler, Che-Foo (for Chaffee).

While   these  attacks continue, Ave cannot stop  the advance of our forces toward  Pekin.   If such attacks cease the  above quoted, information will be  jinoAved to stand and they would  seem to provide for all the action  required under the circumstances  stated by earl Li iri his dispatch.

London, August 10.���While performing at the Royal Opera House,  .Buda-Pest, the well knoAvn  opera  The latest dispatch from minister  Conger was scanned with eager interest, but it brought little information beyond that already.in hand.  In one respect, hoAvever, it gave the  government strong encouragement,  as it Avas almost a categorical answer to the inquiries of the state  department. This AA'as the first definite knowledge that the goA'ern-  ment Avas in direct touch with its  miuister.   Knitter Would Have Peace.  London, August 10.���A British  correspondent recently released  from captivity at Nooitgedacht  asserts positively that Mr. Kruger  Avishes peace, but that the fighting  commandant insists upon continuing the war and would prevent his  flight by force if necessary. The  burghers, according to the same  authority, share this view. The  Transvaalers have .ninety guns at  Machadodorp with abundant provisions.  Steyn Reported Dead.  London, August 16.���Former  president Steyn, according to a dispatch to the Daily Mail from Lorenzo Marquez,' dated; yesterday, is  reported to have died while endeavoring to reach Kruger, as the result  of a severe wound.  Colored Cavalry for China.  San Francisco, August 16.���The  transport Warren sailed today with  the Ninth (colored) cavalry for Taku  by way of Nagasaki.  WASHINGTON VERY ANXIOUS  Chinese Negotiations.  Washington, August 16.���At the  close of a day of intense anxiety  the   department of   state tonight j  made imblic the latest correspondence betAveen the United States  and China, constituting not only ;a  remarkable series of state papers,,  but at the same time dispelling all  doubt and uncertainty as to the  American   policy- in   the   present  critical juncture.   The urgent and  most pathetic appeal of Li Hung  Chang submitted early in the day  that the victorious march of the  allies stop at Tung GhoAv, and that  the military commanders on   the  field be instructed to arrange an armistice at that point was met with  a   response   that   general   Chaffee  already had  been given complete  instructions   empoAvering   him   to  carry out an arrangement in con-;  cert Avith the other   commanders  for the delivery of the ministers  and persons under their protection  to the relief column, not at Tung  ChoAV as had been suggested, but at  the imperial city of Pekin.    Furthermore, it was made known to  China   that   general   Chaffee's instructions left him a free rein as to  Avhether he should insist upon  entering Pekiu' and going to the legations or should receive the delivery  of tho legationers at the gate of  the   inner   Tartar city or at the  great outer Avail.    In short, China,  through her peace envoy," besought  a halt and an armistice at Tung  CIioav   twelve   miles- from   Pekin,  Avhereas the response of the American goA'erninent AA'as  that if there  is to be a halt or an armistice it  must bo at the Avails of the imperial  city.   The conclusions of the government Avere announced after an  extended,  cabinet   meeting,    and  Avere   embodied   in  the   following  official statement:  At the same time, the authorities gave out the latest dispatch  from minister Conger received today through the Chinese minister  Mr. Wu.  It will be V observed that the  American memorandum of the reply gives Li Hung Chang practically nothing beyond a repetition  of the two-dispatches heretofore  sent to general Chaffee. Thus there  can be no misunderstanding "of the  issue. Li Hung Chang's appeal for  an armistice at Tung Chow is rejected, and the continually reiter-  ated^dMrrand'of ^thTfTJflited- S tatesT  that the ministers be delivered to  the allied troops at Pekin is reinforced.  PEKIN RELIEVED AT LAST  Situation in Cliina.  London, August 17.-3:15 a.m.���  A cablegram to Vienna from Hong  Kong announces the capture of  Pekin, but the Austrian government, like other European powers,  is still without confirmation of the  report. An official telegram, dated  Taku, August 14th, has been received at Rome, Avhich asserts that  the attack on Pekin began on Monday, that   Sir Claude MacDonald,  the British minister, has opened  communication Avith the relieving  force and that the allies have established their headquarters at  Tung Chau.  The Chinese officials in Shang-  Hai are reported as admitting that  the allies inflicted a heavy defeat  on the Chinese imperial troops  around Tung Chau on Sunday, and  then marched direct on 7 Pekiu.  That, if true, carries the Japanese  official advances announcing the  capture of Tung Chan, one step  further.  The western poAvers, according to  a, dispatch to the Daily Express  from Kobe, have accepted the proposals formulated by tfapan for  arranging an armistice dependent  upon the immediate delivery of the  foreign legations to the allies or  the granting of permission to the  allied forces to enter Pekin and to  guard the legations. Upon this  basis, the correspondent says, Japan  has already begun to negotiate.  Shang-Hai dispatches declare the  Chinese had intended to make an  attack upon the legations last Sunday, but whether the plan Avas  carried out or not ���is not known  there.  Prom the same place comes the  statement that vice-admiral Seymour and brigadier-general Creigh  have joined in the protest against  the Avithdrawal of, the British  troops.  All the morning papers which  comment on the subject appeal to  lord- Salisbury not to withdraw  them, and dilate upon the serious  result of such an action to British  prestige.  The American negotiations looking to a cessation of hostilities also  received considerable attention,  favorable and otherA\*ise, but all  the editorials agree that to precipitate a withdraAval from Pekin after  the delivery of the legationers  would have a bad effect upon the  Chinese mind.  Revolution Practically Ended.  Victoria, August 10.���In a letter  from Panama dated July 29 th an  officer of II. M. S. Leander says the  vessel was to leave there two days  after the letter was Avritten. The  revolution, the Avriter said, had  practically ended. In some of the  states the belligerents Avere still  fighting. The Leauder's crew had  done nothing but ambulance work.  The belligerents left their dead  and=wounded=on=the=field^for=three"  or four days, and the sailors found  their task most unpleasant for there  Avas an' awful stench from the  putrifying bodies. In one day 130  Avounded were brought in. Many  refugees came to the Leander. On  July 21st general Lozada of the  government troops was roAved out  to tho ship. He returned ashore  four days later and fought in the  ranks as a private. '._._.'.  Boer Officers in New York.  Neav York, August 10.���Matthew  Kane and Peter F. Oates, Avho were  oflicers in the Boer army, arrived  here today on the French lino  steamer La Bretagne. When Pretoria surrendered they determined  to leave South Africa for good.  Oates said he saw president Kruger  just before he left. He was in good  health and had his headquarters in  a railway carriage. These officers  say that the war in South Africa  has become guerrilla in its nature.  They will settle in this country,  and say that many others will do  likewise as soon as they can get  away from South Africa.  Not Enough Gate Money.  Minneapolis, Minnesota, August  17.���The ball game scheduled to be  played here today with Kansas  City was called on account of poor  attendance. It will be played in  Kansas City later.  Allies Suffer From Heat.  London, August 10.���General sir  Alfred Gaselee, commanding the  contingent of troops from India in  China, has wired to the government from Ma Tow under date of  August'11th, via Che Poo, August  15th, as follows: ^J'Arrived here  this morning early, after a most  trying night march. : The troops of  all nationalities arn ��� suffering severely from the he*v��. Ten of our  horses died yesterday from sunstroke. The. enemyis believed to  be eutrenched north of Chang Chia  Wan. There is no further news  from the legations.'' General Gaselee sends tAvo earlier, i dispatches repeating advices already received by.  the British government.  HOUSE DISCUSSES BUDGET  Turner's Speech.  Victoria, August 10���[Special to  The Tribune]���Fvha'nce minister  Turner made his :\budget speech  today, and the first night session of  the session was held. The debate  Avas finished early in the evening,  and the house immediately went  into committee of the -whole and  pushed through the' various votes  at a rapid rate. ..There were feAV  speeches made, the opposition contenting themselves by letting a few  of the leaders make the usual kicks  against the government and not  taking up time, Avitli the exception  of young Mclnnes, who talks like a  firebrand, but .makes ' himself so  silly that nobody pays much attention. ..  Turner went into the various  figures presented in the estimates  and pointed out the salient points.  The chief feature was .that he was  able to show an expanding revenue  in part from neAV income, and the  rest from a natural increase in the  business of theproArince. He figured  a net increase of $209,000. The  change in the mineral tax, he said,  would require the Jarger metalliferous mines to-pay.'a'greater percentage on their output, but Avould  relieve the smaller properties.  A higher import'will be placed on  timber, the tax on large incomes  will be increased and the iicav tax  on the coal output Avill realize  $70,000. This tax is five cents a  ton in addition to, five cents a ton  royalty. Turner showed how the  stock of British Columbia in Loudon had dropped OAving to unsettled  conditions. The large increase on  public Avorks, $300,000 more than  last year, was, he said, because the  last government had alloAved public works to fall into disrepair. He  dAvelt on the fine results of the  government's expenditures in Kootenay, and intimated that the government would do what it could to  secure an all Canadian railway into  the Yukon.  The railway committee reported  favorably today on tho railway  from Kitamaat arm to the interior.  A bill to relievo the Canadian  volunteers serving in South Africa  from non-compliance with the mining regulations in regard to their  claims Avhile theyare absent Avas  introduced today amid applause  from both sides^pf the house.  TJ. S. Hospital in Japan.  Washington, August 16.���The  department of state has been notified by minister Buck at Tokio that  the Japanese government has given  permission to the United States  government to establish a hospital  on Japanese territory wherever the  United States government may select a site. ���   -  Chang Chia Wan Captured.  Berlin, August 10.���A dispatch  received here from Tien-Tsin announces that the allied forces havo  captured Chang Chia Wan with  slight loss. The Chinese left 500  dead on the field. The remainder  fled, some to Tung Chau and some  to Pekin.   Quarantined in the Thames.  London, August 10.���The British  steamer Clan McArthur, which  sailed from Calcutta via Port Said  for London on July 25th, has been  quarantined in the Thames owing  to a death from bubonic plague  having occurred on board the  vessel.

NEWS OF THE SLOGAN MINES  Much Work Going On.  Kaslo, August 16.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���-Tom McGuigan was  iu town the other day and announced that the American Boy  Company is going to build a wagon  road from, the high tower on the  Last Chance trannvay to the mine.  The American Boy ore Avill then be  shipped down the Last Chance  tramway. It is the intention to  ship both in bulk and in sacks.  Caleb Freeman left last week to  start work on the L.-.D. fraction adjoining the Legal Tender on Noble  S?ive mountain.  The interest of A H. Williams,  Avife of J. H. Williams, in the Bertha  claim near the Dardanelles, has  been seized by the sheriff to satisfy  a county court judgment obtained  by H. Giegerich, against Williams  for $86. The sheriff has "also seized  Philip McVicars interest in a promissory note for $2500 issued by the  BritanniaMiningCompauy. Thisalso  Avill be sold to satisfy a claim of H.  Giegerich's for $643.  T. N. Barnard of Wallace, Idaho,  Avho is uoav Avorking the Irene, Eva,  Mary and Sherlock, in the Upper  Duncan for a United States company which he recently formed, returned to Kaslo on Saturday from  the other side and went back to  Lardo again on the Argenta Tuesday. He does not expect to come  out from the mines until October.  "I shall probably remain at the  claims until we are forced to close  down," he said to a Tribune reporter. Mr. Barnard is as enthusiastic as ever over his property, but  he, like all others, greatly deplores  the lack of railway communication  which is keeping back one of the  finest districts in the whole of British Columbia. Still, like the Ban -  nockburn people and others, Mr.  Barnard is getting ready so as to be  able to ship as soon as the railway  comes and it cannot be very much  longer delayed. This season ' has  seen some good work done in the  Lardo Duncan and though there is_  little probability of any raihvay  movement there this year the  Avhistle of the engine should be  heard next year. .  James Mackay Anderson, western  manager of the Gold Hills Exploration Company of Toronto, was in  town for several days this Aveek.  He reports that the company's  properties in Lardo are showing up  AArell. He has kept to the policy  outlined early in the season, namely,  of doing the assessment work on  the very large number of claims  that the company OAvns but at the  same time particular attention has  been paid to the Chicora group situated about three miles from  HoAvser lake. From specimens of  rock exhibited in the town it seems  as if the Chicora has the ear marks  of a promising property. Very encouraging work has also been done  on the MerryKn_gland^Kroup_situ*L_  nected by a wagon road with the  Rambler Cariboo and the* Dardanelles mines, a distance of six miles.  A continuation of the wagon road  up the mountain would reach  several shipping mines and a considerable number of prospects,  which are likely to become producers of ore if facilities [of cheaper  access and transportation are afforded. The petition goes on: "If the  government will contribute one-half  of the cost of the Wagon road not  exceeding 'two miles in length from  the Rambler Cai'iboo wagon road to  the Antoine basin, it will be possible  to procure contributions fromt-the  owners of properties interested to  the extent of the remaining half."  ated about seven miles from the  Duucan river up HoAvser creek.  There are three leads on this property aud Mr. Anderson is Avell satisfied with the season's work upon  the group. This Toronto company  is a pioneer of eastern corporations  as far as the Lardo-Duncan is concerned and its operations, if successful, will doubtless help to bring  more eastern Canadian money here.  The local oflice of the Nelson aud  Slocan Development Company has  been moved from Nelson to Kaslo  and Charles Caldwell has been appointed resident manager. E. L.  Sawyer and his Toronto friends are  largely interested in the concern,  the chief properties of Avhich are  the Pontiac and Tecumseh, recently  purchased from Frank Heap. The  company has put men to work on  its just acquired properties and  hopes to make a good showing  Avithin a short time.  Alex. Smith Avho has just got  back from the Lardo states that the  Bannockburn will be worked to the  latest possible date this season ; that  is until the suoav makes it impossible for men to remain at the  property.  A petition is being extensively  signed asking for the continuation  of the Rambler Cariboo Avagon road  to the Antoine basin. J. C. Ryan  takes an active interest in the  matter and has been instrumental  in securing a large number of signatures. The petition is addressed to  the chief commissioner of lauds and  Avorks and sets forth that the petitioners are interested in mining  properties tributary to McGuigan  railway station on the Kaslo and  Slocan raihvay.   McGuigan is con-  CONCERT WAS SUCCESSFUL  Interesting Program.  The R. M.

The building  was crowded, the audience enthusiastic and the program excellent.  The band, under conductor Harry  F. Wambold, was in fine form and  its selections were rendered splendidly, while the Nelson, orchestra,  including H. P. Wambold, first  violin, Al Tregillus,' flute, P. Coggin,  cornet, D. Wambold, clarionet, L.  S. Otis, bass viol, P. Johnson, trombone, - Sid Foster, second violin,  Steve. Wright,, pianist, and "T. A.  Mills, trap drums, made a decided  hit. ,,     .  Perhaps the best." event on the  program was the Avr'estling match  between Tom Davis and' Oat'a, the  Japanese. Davis Avas in splendid  condition, weighed in heavier than  his Oriental opponent, and had the  best of the bout, Avinning two out  of three falls. The Jap had the  short end as to age, weight, condition and skill,* but the match Avas  in earnest from the drop of the hat  and proved to be a pretty exhibition. The Jap played fair and took  his defeat gamely, whil Davis' win  evoked loud applause.  Professor Parker contributed  several clever sketches and stories  to the program.  Tom Davis and Dick Slugg boxed  three clever rounds. The bout was  declared a draw.  Songs Avere given by W. J. Caldwell, G. R. Williamson, J. Devlin  arid Jock Ness. The chair was  occupied by W. A. Galliher.  American Cipher Safe.  Washington, August 16.���The  acting secretary of state makes  public the following extract from a  dispatch received this morning  from Mr. Conger. It was handed  to Mr. Adee by Mr. Wu, Avho explained that he had received it at  midnight from the taotai of Shang-  Hai by whom it had been received  by way of Tsi Nan, August loth.

If the men AA'ere entitled  to the pay they asked for it would  be granted, but he declined to be  forced into action. Alderman. Arthur coincided.  Mr. Payne remarked that tho  barroAV men were only two in number and the bricklayers' helpers  only one, so that the council should  not hesitate to act.

Fast Eailway Trains.  London, August 17.���Commenting  upon a contributed article on "the  fastest trains in the world" the  Times says editorially: "If there  is one point more than another in  which English railways have retained superiority, it is in speed of  fast trains. Yet the United States  and France are now running not  one or two but many faster trains  than can be found on our roads."  - More Horses For South Africa.

There is  to be no check this session upon the  industry of those who wax fat  through the sale of railway concessions to those who build railways.  Canada 'has made great strides  iu its commerce during the past few  years, but its politics remain pretty  much where they were twenty  years ago. The Dominion Has not  yet reached that stage when it * can  witness a general election in which  one half of the people are not asked  to believe that the remaining half  is disloyal.  Four years ago the slogan of the  Liberal campaigners was free trade  as they have it in England.    This  _year_they_jivill_doubtless_be_satis--  fied with Canada's own trade.

In the last issue of tbe Independent Goldwin Smith replies to a recent criticism of his book "Guesses  at the   Riddle of   Existence," in  .which he makes a plea for;veracity  '  in dealing with religious dogmas  ') that is pertinent and timely.   The  book in question, it may be explained, takes the ground that mankind  will soon  cease to believe in any  supernatural religion.    During the  transition period the race will experience "a bad quarter .of an hour,"  owing    to  the   disappearance  of  moral sanction.    But it will eventually get used to a purely materialistic basis of conduct and continue  the evolution upward and onward  which has thus far been the law of  its   existence.   For putting   forth  this view the; Independent called  the book "a withering one," both to  those "who have faith and to those  who are groping in the dark toward it."  But Mr. Smith objects'to this condemnation of his views, not so much  because they are untrue as because  they will have certain unpleasant  or regrettable results. "In the  present situation," he says, "our  salvation lies in asking, not whether  the thing is withering or reviving,  but whether it is false or true. If  it is false it will not be found reviving; nor, if it is true, will it be  . found withering in the end. . . .  The theological forum abounds in  temporizing apologists who in their  not unnatural desire to save cherished' tradition would have us put  up with half measures  of truth.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  Before me lies a new 'Life of Christ,.'  the work of one of the most eminent writers of this school,- throughout which the question . whether  Christ was God or man is studiously,  not to say artfully, evaded. Instead of stating his own conviction  the writer vouches the authority_o��i  "tbeTNicene Fathers, in whose infallibility it is impossible to suppose  that he can believe. What good  can be done by this?"  Mr. Smith's vieAvs of religion may  be wholly erroneous, and yet the  plea for veracity which he. makes  here is sound in principle and  should be especially heeded by  Christians today. No one who reads  current Christian literature can fail  to notice how often the defenders  of dogma against the arguments of  unbelievers content themselves with  saying that tne surrender of this or  that doctrine or tradition would  produce certain disagreeable consequences. Yet the only question  really at issue is the truth or falsity  of the doctrine assailed.. And in  this age, when veracity is becoming  more and moro the ruling passion  of the race, it is the one queseion  that has any interest for thinking  men.. It is always easy to conjure  up the appalling consequence that  will follow the giving up of some,  old law or custom and the adoption  of some new theory. Within the  memory of men still living hundreds  of eminent divines were denouncing  the theory of evolution and showing how it would destroy all credibility in Christianity. But evolution is accepted and taught today  by many Christian ministers, and it  is no longer considered inconsistent  with a sincere belief in Christian  revelation.  As to Mr. Smith's assertion that  a belief in the supernatural is dying  out it is still only a theory, and it is  denied by many others quite as  competent as he to form a judgment  in the case. But it is no argument  against the theory to picture the  Imperial Bank of Canada  -   HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.  Capital Authorized  Capital Paid up  Rest  $2,500,000  $2,458,603  $1,700,000  D. R.

For, should it turn out  to be true, it will come finally to be  accepted anyhow.   Two courses are  open ��� to the modern defender ' of  super naturalism.    He can   assume  that it rests on a divine revelation  =to,man.=In=that=case^he-is=under=  no obligation to. bring-forward any  proofs in its favor except the bare  assertion of the divinely commissioned church and priesthood.   Or  he can assume that the supernatural dogmas of Christianity can be  proved to the reason of man.   But  whichever of these courses he elects  to take be must abide by the consequences of his choice.   If he rests  his case on a divine revelation he  must not try to rationalize some  supernatural   dogma in  order   to  make   it  more  palatable   to  the  reason.   He must be content to say  that it is divinely true, even though  it transcends or contradicts reason.  Or, if he contends that Christianity  is capable of rational   proof, like  any other historical fact, he must  abide by the laws of evidence, even  when they make against the credibility of some doctrine which he;  considers essential.    He cannot declare that Christianity is ready to  'meet the severest tests of scientific  investigation and then, when  investigation   appears    to   disprove  some cherished view, take refuge in.  the assertion that the view in question is part of "a divine revelation  and    therefore    to   be    accepted  whether it can be proved or not.  Lord Wolseley Displeased;  London, August 16.���Viscount  Wolseley, field marshal and commander-in-chief of the British  army, delivered today, according to  the Daily Mail, the most scathing  condemnation ever heard at Alder-  shot. After witnessing yesterday's  manoeuvres he declared the 30,000  men who participated were utterly  unfit to send abroad, being badly  led and badly taught.   Many dis  tinguished officers listened to these  remarks, among them being general  Montgomery Moore, formerly in  command in Canada, but now commanding at Aldershot.
