WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  BESIEGED IN THE LEGATION  Tsung Li- Yamen's Treachery.  London, August 23���i a. m.���  "Today 1500 Americans attacked  the imperial palace," says a dispatch to the Morniug Post from  Pekiu, dated August 15tb, "aud  captured four of the courts. The  American flag is flyiug over the imperial granary, and the imperial  bank has been looted."  Describing events prior to the relief, tho Morning Post correspon-  pondent cables:  -"'   "On  August   12th  the tsung   li  yamen requested a conference with  a view to peace.    No armistice was  granted, however, and that night  wo endured the longest fusillade of  the whole siege.    11 lasted twelve  hours.  "On August 18th the tsung li  yamen begged to be excused from  any conference, saying that the  members were too busy. Later  ' they wrote that they had forbidden  firing on us, and would court martial any who disobeyed. During  the evening many shells fell in the  legation compound."  The Daily Chronicle publishes an  interview with the Japanese minister in London, Kato Tallaki,  which represents him as having  said:  "The empress is the heart aud soul  of China.   So long as she lives, so  long   as   she   remains    in    China,  whether   the   supreme    power'  is  taken from her or not, she  will  al-.  ' ways bo tho greatest force, the one  above   all   others  to  be  reckoned  with.   TJie difficulty will  be to get  any one who can speak for her.   I  fear that the iufiuence of Li  Hung  Cliang is now of extremely little  weight.  "The powers must come to a final  understanding.       Riots,    anarchy,  bloodshed and misery throughout  China will be the inevitable result  of a policy that does not immediately disclose itself.     The  government must be re-established."  The Japanese   envoy   expressed  ..-his.approval oi the reported American suggestion regarding a  conference of the   powers, and said he  i'vbelieved  that  satisfactory pecuni-  ' ary compensation could be  secured  if the resources of China were properly developed, despite the fact  that   her    present    revenues   are  pledged."  Field marshal count von Waldersee, according to the Daily Mail's  correspondent, expressed the opinion that his labors in China will be  of long duration, as pacification  will be a difficult undertaking.  Three hundred and seventy-five  thousand Russian troops are already  in the far east or on the way by  laud aud sea,  or  under orders to  embark.    This  statement is  made  iu the Moscow correspondence of  the Daily Graphic, which adds that  mobilization is in progress all over  European Russia, and that there  ���': are now at Odessa fourteen steamers  chartered to take the troops.     Ac-  cording to ajSt.JPetersburg-special  a telegram has been received at the  Russian  capital   from    Shang-Hai  "announcing   the departure   of   Li  Hung Chang to Pekin.

Another telegram dated the 10th has been received here, from Pao Ting Fu to  the effect that though the empress  dowager has left Pekin, the.emperor has decided to remain behind."  EARL Ll GETS HIS REPLY  JOE MAKES ANOTHER SCENE  Amending Placer Laws.  Victoria, August 22.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���There was a little  scene in the house tonight in whicli  Joe   Martin   figured   prominently.  On a division on a bill, some of the  opposition claimed that the names  hacl been called for the record.   Mr.  Speaker had not heard this call and  said' so,   but the three necessary  members of the opposition  rose to  say they had requested tho  names  to be recorded.   Joe took occasion  of this to attack the government  roundly, and to accuse the speaker  of being partial.     Amid the uproar  he said that if the speaker did not  act fairly he would take measures  to make him.  Prentice, the provincial secretary,  proceeded to call. Joe down. The  latter turned on him and told him  not to make a nuisance of himself  by always interfering. The scene  was decidedly lively for a while,  but cooled down, no blows being  struck.  Stables, of Atlin, today introduced a bill to amend the Placer  Mining Act, making all placer  claims now divided into various  classes and sizes a uniform size of  250 feefc square, with discovery  claims 250 feet by 100 feet.  The government got into a bungle today over non-compliance with  the rules regarding clauses in some  private bills that need governmental - sanction.     These  are usually  printed in italics in the first draft,  of a bill under the supposition that  in that way they,do not appear un-'  til assented to by the government.  The "italics*-were'-not.used in  the*  bills complained of, and, .although  Joe   Martin ' called   "attention   to  the matter and pointed out that no  objection   being   taken,   the   bills  might   go  through, taking it for  granted that assent had been given,  the government proceeded to   go  through the rigmarole of the various stages of the bills to straighten  out the tanglo.    The attorney-general was not very grateful to Joe  for pointing out   the defect, and  hence Joe got on his dignity and'  was bound to have his pound of  flesh in strictly standing by the ���  rules.  Sensible Women.  London, August 22.���The women  of Victoria have started a movement against woman suffrage similar, according to the Melbourne  correspondent of the Times, to the  American woman's anti-suffrage  movement. Fifteen thousand  women have signed a petition  against the woman suffrage bill.  King Oscar to Arbitrate.  Stockholm, August 22.���King  Oscar has formally agreed to act as  arbitrator of the claims for compensation for losses sustained by  British and German subjects and  American citizens in Samoa.  From Japanese Sources.  Washington,   August   22.���The  Japanese legation has received  a  telegram  dated August 21st from  the foreign office at Tokio giving  the   following   dispatch ���_ received  yesterday from the Japanese acting  consul-general at   Shang-Hai:   "A  dispatch received here from a Chinese official at Pao Ting Fu says  that by the empress dowager's  orders Hsui Yung  Yi, Li Shan and  Lien Yuen  were, executed on the*  11th, and  Yung Lu, who was to  have shared the same fate, is now in  the   jail   of   the   judicial   department, and that the empress and  emperor left Pekin  the   13th   escorted by Tun Fu   Shiaug troops  for Wu Tai Shan, via Chuchow and  Tse Ching Kwan.   Kang Ye, it is  further stated, has been appointed  Chaffee Congratulated.  Washington, August 22.���The  war department has made public  the following: "Major-general  Chaffee, Pekin via Taku. The  president joins me in congratulating  you and the officers aud men of  your command on the brilliant  _achievement,-in-which-the-courager  fortitude and skill of the American  forces in China have played so honorable a part. While mourning for  your fallen comrades, the whole  country is proud and grateful for  your great success. (Signed) Elihu  Root, secretary of war."  Comments From Washington.  Washington, August 22.���After  a   long conference at the   White  House  today,   the   reply   of the  United States to the application of  Li Hung Chang for the appointment of a peace commissioner was  completed, and a copy of the reply  sent to the Chinese minister Mr. Wu  to be forwarded  to earl Li.     The  state department made the definite  announcement that the  reply had  been  conveyed   to   Mr.   Wu,   but  added to its official utterance that  the correspondence would not be  made public until tomorrow morning.    A copy of the reply was sent  to   the   other governments repre  sen ted in China. ' fr  The American reply-   is   chiefly  characterized by its firm tone and  its brevity. . Its   key note is the  president's attitude as laid down in  the American note July 3rd, and  there is the strictest adherence to  the points enunciated at that time.  While the document is open to the  construction of being a rejection of  Li   Hung Chang's proposition   for  immediate   negotiation,   yet   it is  stated by those who read the answer with care and have had a part  in its preparation, that rejection is  probably too strong a. term to apply to it.    The United States places .  itself in the position of being ready J  at    the    proper     time   to   take  up      peace     negotiations.       The  government of the United States is  of   the   opinion * that negotiations  are impossible with a country which  cannot prevent hostilities against  the   forces - of  the powers   which  were sent to the Chinese capital to  save   their   envoys.      As ' long as  attacks are made on'the troops of  this and other governments, such  as has followed the occupation  of  Pekin and the attacks in the vicinity of Tien-Tsin, it is deemed that  the Chinese government is 'either  unwilling or unable"to prevent the  hostilities.   It is stated, however,  that   the reply is a step   in the  direction of opening negotiations.  No question  is  raised as to  the  authority of Li Hung Chang to represent ��� his government, but it is  said that his credentials, like those  of all others who come together for  the purpose of negotiating terms of  peace,' will be examined by the respective   representatives    of    the  powers, and the validity of the papers of each representative determined by that body.   The United  States, however, in communicating  with minister Wu, recognizes him  as the official representative of the  Chinese government.  The most important development  of the day as to the actual conditions in Pekin came late in the  afternoon when the state department made public a dispatch from  minister Conger dated at Pekin  only three days_ago  from admiral Remey's account of  this affair that while the Chinese  are in force enough around Tien-  Tsin to make a considerable show,  they are evidently not in the humor  hotly to   contest   an engagement.  The casualty list in this fight seems  to indicate a sudden and total rout.  The   signal   office   says there is  reason to believe that the military  telegraph line is how working into  the Chinese capital.    Some delays  are expected at first, as the  line is  simply an insulated wire laid on the  ground,   there being   not   enough  timber in that l e#ion to erect i t ou  poles uutil lumber or iron poles are  shipped in.     Notice also was   received at the state department today that the Taku-Che-Foo cable is  in working order'.    It is thought  there soon will beia direct and reliable line of wire/from the war'de-  partmentto general Chaffee's headquarters at Pekin;'.  The most important dispatch of  the day was not made public by  the war department, but was the  subject of an extended conference  at the White .House this morning  between   the   president, secretary  Root and acting secretary of state  Adee.   It was from general Chaffee  and arrived at about the same time  as the casualty list of the Pekin  fight.   It was dat��d the  18th, and  therefore was not a reply to the  message of inquiry'sent to general  Chaffee by the war fdepartment on  Monday night.    Still ic answered a  number of the inquiries  contained  in that message.   It dealt entirely  with military, operations and conditions. ...  While it cannot be said to have  contained auy bad news, and recorded the brilliant successes of the  American troops who have borne  themselves   so "gallantly   in   the  ass-iult - on . Pekin,   it   contained  enough   as'to the  unsettled conditions in China and the prospect of  long and arduous work in restoring  peace to form the subject'of a consultation of   some hours between  the president and his advisers.     Ifc  was hoped  in  official  circles  that  when general. ChasTee's, should be'  heard from "hV"worild; report" that;  the work of the American expeditionary   force   had   been   accomplished by the rescue of the ministers and that the blow struck at,  the Boxer insurgents by the foreign^  column   had dissipated these   revolutionists   and left, China with  hands free to make her peace with  the civilized world.  Instead of this, however, general  Chaffee had to report an utterly  chaotic condition of affairs and the  capture of a capital, whence all the  heads of the government had fled.  There was nothing for the victors  to do but to prevent anarchy by  administering this derelict of empires which had fallen into their  hands.       Therefore   the  MEETING OF METHODISTS  Church for Ainsworth.  The annual financial meeting of  the   Kootenay   Methodist   district  opened    here   yesterday   at   the  Methodist church.    The clergymen  present were Revs. J. A. Wadd of  Kaslo, chairman;    G.  H. Morden,  Rossland, J.JS. Pye, Trail, J. A. Sanford,   Sandon,   E.   K.   Bradshaw,  Grand Forks, T. H. Hall, Michel J..  Boweriug,    Cranbrook,     Stillman,  Fernie, and J.  H.  White, Nelson.  Mr. Andrews of Slocan was present  as   a  lay   delegate   and   Thomas  Howell of Nelson was invited to sit  with the meeting.  ���  The    business     at    yesterday's  session was the consideration of the  condition of the work in  the various mission fields and the recom  mendation   of   grants.     Row  Mr.  Sandford made a strong appeal on  behalf of   the Sandon Methodists  who are endeavoring to rebuild the  church destroyed in the recent fire.  He was assured of the cordial help  of the district and a resolution was  passed commending the case to tho  missionary authorities.  It was decided that- the work at  Ainsworth should be revived, and a  supply - will be sent there shortly.  The denomination has a"fine church  property   in the camp which has  not been utilized for several years.  The Michel and Phoenix missions  were discussed.     The former is a  promising   coal mining camp  and  the mission established  there during the year has done well.    l\~o  action has been taken with regard  to Phoenix, but a clergyman is to  be stationed there in the near future.     The   work   has   fluctuated  with   the  growth  of the   various  camps, but tiie reporfc from the district as a whole is .very satisfactory and the clergymen predict a.  bright future for Methodism in the  Kootenays.  Last night Rev.

Nkw York, August 22.���The executive committee of the American-  i Asiatic Association  have received  the following cablegram from the  American Association of China at  Shang-Hai, and have forwarded it  to the secretary of  state:    "The  situation in the Yang Tse valley is  increasingly critical.   The military  estimate   that   15,000   troops   are  needed effectively to protect Shang-  Hai."        ________       ���  Kruger's Counter-Proclamation.  London, August 23.���President  Kruger, according to a dispatch  from Lorenzo Marquez to the Daily  Express, has issued a proclamation  counter to the latest proclamation  issued by lord Roberts in the  Transvaal papers. He says: "It  will help you nothing to lay down  your arms or to leave the commandoes. Every step homeward  means a step nearer   St. Helena."  [The United States' Reply.  Washington, August 22.���The  reply of the United States government to Li Hung Chang is in brief  that the government cannot enter  upon negotiations until there is a  government in China which can  prevent the hostilities of Chinese  troops and Chinese citizens against  the forces of the powers. The text  of the reply has been communicated  to the other governments.  Mr. Conger's message was particularly welcome, to the officials in  showing how completely the entire  city is dominated by the allies.   He  states that ib is  occupied throughout, and that it is  being districted  for police supervision.     This last  measure , shows   the thoroughness  with which the allies are applying  civil methods to the Chinese capital.  Mr.  Conger's statement that "the  conditions are chaotic" was taken  as another strong justification for  the firm reply given to China today.  He emphasizes the fact, that the  Chinese army has fled, that the imperial family and court have gone,  and that no representative of the  Chinese government is to be seen in  Pekin.  Minister Conger makes no mention of his desire to come home, and  it is stated officially that his government has made no suggestion  that he return to this country.  The   military situation   was   of  quite as much interest iu today's  developments   as   was   the   diplomatic.   Admiral   Remey   reported  early in fche morning, bringing the  story of the Pekin operations up to  the 10th instant,  and  confirming  the press report already-printed of  the death of the gallant captain  Reilly in the final assault on the  outer walls of Pekin.  ^Almost as important as the Pekin  news in today's dispatches was the  statement that the Boxers are again  concentrating   around    Tien-Tsin,  and last Sunday morning the Sixth  cavalry with about 400 British and  Japanese troops had a lively brush  with the Boxers eight miles outside  Tien-Tsin, where about 100 of the  Chinese were killed and five Americans wounded,     It   was  evident  opened up by general Chaffee's dis  patch is that the American contingent of necessity would be detained  for some time to come, probably  for the whole winter. This would  necessitatethe^hurried-completion"  of preparations that already have  been begun comfortably to subsist  our army through the severe winter weather which will soon close  in on northern China.  , Property Destroyed.  New York, August 22.���The first  cablegrams which have come to the  mission boards in this eity from  Pekin since communication was cut  off over two months ago, arrived  today. One of them was received  by the Presbyterian board of for-  prospect | ei"Sn missions  |     It came from Rev. Dr. Wherry of  Pekin   and   was   dated    Che-Foo,  where it is supposed to have been  sent   via   Tien-Tsin.     It  follows:-  phides Smelting Company, Limited,  with   a   capital    expanded   from  $500,000 to $2,500,000.   The intention of the directors is to purchase  a site on the Manchester ship canal  near. the_ works.of  the Smelting  Corporation, its rival, which operates the Fry process. The Smelting  Corporation has its Canadian office  herein Kaslo and. its /representatives are Whealler &,Martin!. They  succeeded -  the - late'-^Avthur. R.

The corporation  bonded a  large number of properties  including the Lucky Jim and other zinc  producing  claims.     Whether   the  British   Sulphide _ Company   will  come to this country for ore or not  remains to be seen.  The   importance of  the   Slocan  and. Ainsworth divisions is to be recognized by the provincial govern-'  ment.

Los Angbi.es, California, August  21.���For several, days past persistent rumors have filled the air that  the Terminal railroad has been sold.  The latest and most plausible report is that the Terminal has been  bought by ex-senator W. A. Clark  of Montana, who purposes to head  the   construction   of   a   new   line  across the continent.    Perhaps it is  best to state at the outset that E.  Gibbon, vice-president of the road,  asserts positively that a sale has  not been made.     Technically this  denial   must   be   true   or   Gibbon  would not make the assertion.   But  still rumors lift their voices  higher  and more frequently in local railroad offices, and their sources are  of such  high   respectability   that  it   is   impossible   to   ignore them.  The story is that Clark has entered  into an agreement to buy the whole  Terminal property and that he has  put up a matter of a quarter of  million of dollars to bind the bargain ; that ifc will take two or three  weeks to close the deal and by that  time all the world will know the  whole story of the transaction.   If  that were all ifc would not be of  great significance, but other chapters go on to recite that it means  afc a very early day the beginning  of work on the long talked of Los  Angeles and Salt Lake railroad, a  long link in a new and independent  transcontinental line between the  east and wesfc.   That was what the  Terminal was intended to be.  "Mackey says some converts were  marvellously saved.    The property  of the mission and private property  is totally destroyed. Wire friends.''  Robert Speer, one of the secretaries of the board, commented on  this   as follows:    "There is much  doubt as  to the  meaning of the  message.   The most hopeful interpretation is that it refers to Pao  Ting Fu, and that 'some converts'  may be a mistake for'Simcoxes.'  At any rate it is clear that all the  regular missionaries of the Presbyterian   church   at Pekiu and  Dr.  Maud  Mackey are safe, and that  the property either in Pekin or Pao  Ting Fu is destroyed.  The Rev. Dr. A. B. Leonard of the  Methodist missionary society also  received a cablegram from Pekin as  follows: "Pekin relieved. All  members of the mission well and  safe." This was signed by the Rev.  George Davis and the Rev. F. D.  Gamewell. There were 18 members  of the Methodist mission in Pekin  during the siege.  Pekin Fully Occupied.  Washington,  August   22.  The  state   department authorizes   the  announcement of the receipt at an  early hour this (Wednesday) morning, through the consul at Che-Foo,  of a telegram from Mr.  Conger^ in  the department cipher, to  the following effect:   "Pekin, Augusfc 19.  ���The entire city, with the  exception  of    the ��� imperial palace,    is  occupied       by       the       Japanese, j  Russian,   British,   Americans   and I  French.       It   ��� is     being     apportioned   into   districts   for   police  supervision.      The   Chinese   army  has fled.   The imperial family and  court   have   gone  westward, pro-  men who are prominently put for  ward for the position, namely, John  Keen, ex-mining recorder, and E. E.  Chipman, the new recorder.   Some  say_that-the-latter���only���accepted-  his   present   office on the   understanding that he was later to be  made government agent and assistant   commissioner   of   lands   and  works.   He is known to have the  support of R. F. Green, the member  for   the   district.       John   Keen's  friends base his claim  to the position on his extensive knowledge of  local   mining   conditions.     If Mr.  Chipman ��� gets   the job  D.  Kurtz  may be given the mining recorder-  ship.  The fame of the glaciers high up  above the mines of Ainsworth and  the Slocan has reached Chicago,  and a party of students from the  Windy Cifcy is expected here  shortly, chief among whom is a son  of Mr. Whitney, the railway magnate. The young men will come  here prepared to do some hard  climbing, and the local people intend to aid them in every way to  make their trip not only pleasurable but profitable. The students  will probably negotiate the magnificent glaciers at the head of the  south fork of Kaslo river. If then  their ardor is still unabated they  will be taken up the Lardo-Duncan,  where are to be found some of the  finest glaciers in the whole country.  The visit of the students should be  alike valuable to them and to the  country. Being all the sons of rich  Chicago people, they may take  back with them impressions sufficient to cause their friends to investigate the mines of the surrounding  At the Recorder's Office.

The trouble between the medical  council aud the benevolent societies  of Victoria, over the medical attendance of lodge members, has not  been patched up. Although the  societies prefer to have three physicians who will attend to their  business the doctors have much the  best end of the stick in that they  control the examining board before  which any new practitioners have  to go before they can practice. To  even matters up, the societies are  now endeavoring to secure such  amendments to tho British Columbia Medical Act as will permit anyone to practice in the province who  is duly qualified to practice in auy  other province of the Dominion.  That the societies will succeed is  nofc likely. The professional men  are long-headed. No matter how  they differ upon every other subject they are always found shoulder  to shoulder when a common danger  threatens, and they have too many  friends iu the present legislature to  lose any special privileges which  they now enjoy.

IF YOU WANT  Pure  Groceries  at Honest  Prices  TRY   THE  TilB gold commissioners throughout the province are issuing notices  to the effect that it'is the intention  of   the   government   to appoint a  commission to enquire into the condition of the mining laws.     This is  unwelcome news. -   No matter how  the   government   may attempt to  disguise the fact the appointment  of such a commission will be understood as a weakening on the . part  of the  government on the eight-  hour law.    Such a commission could  not ignore the eight-hour law, and  the mere circumstance of making it  the subject of an enquiry will,open  the door for a renewal of the disturbance and strife which stagnated  the mining industry during the past  season. This is the most unpleasant  feature of the situation from the  business man's point of view.    It is  difficult for them to see the wisdom  -of-reopening"th"e7sOTe_jus^t"wlieh���it"  had   commenced   to heal, and, in  view of   the assurances given  by  several   of   the members   of    the  government during the recent debate, the announcement that the  commission will issue comes as a  very great disappointment.    It is  noAV too late to discuss whether the  time selected for the enactment of  the eight-hour law was opportune.  The measure has become law, the  disquieting   effects   of   its   introduction have been met, and after a  long and bitter struggle a reconciliation has been effected between  the miners and the  DEBENTURES  FOR SALE  Tiie City of Nelson, British Columbia, has authorized the issue of debentures for the following  purposes:  $15,000 for extending the Water-  Works System.  815,000 for extending the Electric Light System.  $20,000 for extending the Sewer  System.  $20,000   for   Street   Improvements.  $6,000 for a Road Making Plant.

Cost to the people of Canada,  $00,000,000.  It connects the Maritime provinces with old Canada���in other  words, connects Montreal, Quebec,  Sfc. John, Moncton, Halifax, Sydney,  Charlottetown.  The Intercolonial gives Canada  all-the-year-round seaports at St.  John, Halifax, Sydney, independent  of all the other railways in Canada  or out of Canada.  The Intercolonial is an essential  factor in a Canadian fast Atlantic  steamship express, making the  shortest and safest line between  Canada and Europe aiid the Western States and Europe. As long as  Canada controls the Intercolonial  she can make any one of her maritime cities the Atlantic port of this  fast steamship express. Give up  the Intercolonial and Canada will  have to submit to the terms of the  railways and the, ocean lines. She  will be no longer free to pick the  best port or to change her port as  circumstances require. Her hands  will be tied.  /tis essential to Canada's national  existence that she have Atlantic  seaports reached by her own railway and not be at the mercy of the  Grand Trunk or the Canadian  Pacific, both of which roads, though  enormously subsidized by Canada,  have deliberately declared that they  are strictly commercial, not national, and that they intend to cul- I  be frozen to death by private rail  ways.  The Intercolonial will be an essential factor in bringing Newfoundland into tho confederation.  As it is today the Intercolonial is  a check in the east on the two big  corporations winter and summer;  much more so in summer, as now  that the Intercolonial comes to Montreal ifc will be able to handle freight  by alliances wifch boats clear up to  the Ixead of Port Arthur.  But once the Intercolonial is put  afc the Georgian Bay via Ottawa  and at the Niagara au'd Detroit  rivers via Toronto it will be an efficient and everlasting check on the  Grand Trunk and on the C. P. R.  It will be an effective regulator of  these and other roads. But it must  be absolutely free of all or any entanglements with the other companies. The effect of this regulating power would be felt clear up to  Port Arthur.  The Intercolonial at Georgian  Bay will be in touch with the  Canadian Northern, the promised  rival of the C. P. R. in the Northwest and British Columbia.  The great present object is to  keep the Intercolonial free and independent, and next to put it in  touch with the rich freight-giving  province of Ontario. Ontario paid  largely for it, but has no direct  benefit from it.  Fearsome of what the Intercolonial is, still more frightened as to  what it may become, a movement  has been started to destroy it, to  tangle it up in deals, to create distrust in it, to lead people to believe  that a state-owned railway is, if not  impossible, a source of political corruption, and that it ought to be got  rid of���by giving it over to the Canadian Pacific.  The    Intercolonial   is   Canada's  greatest present asset, and its im-  immediate   possibilities   are    still  _more_enormous.  Auy man, journal or party that  proposes to cripple, alienate or destroy the usefulness of fche national  railway is an enemy of the nation,  a traitor to the people and the  friend of the great railway corporations. There is no political crime  in sight equal in enormity to this  one. And yet it is now in contemplation���has been the object of a  conspiracy for years. It has been  revived with much fervor within  the present year. There are politicians aud newspapers actively engaged in this conspiracy today I  Give the C. P. R. the Intercolonial  and they can bond it for forty  million of dollars, and with forty  millions what could they uot do in  the way of buying up politicians,  newspapers, parliameuts.  Give the C. P. R. the Intercolonial  and you increase its. power by one  hundred million dollars; you put  the east under the same freight  bondage;'of'.which the west complains, and- you put back the hands  of the clock fifty years.    We are in  a ten times better position than the  people of the United States in effecting emancipation from the  thraldom of railways by keeping  the splendid beginning that we  have of a national railway system.  Hustle the banditti now at work  trying to cripple and then alienato  Canada's greatest piece of national  property.  Contractors and Builders  WILL DO WELL TO  Buy Their Lumber  AT   G. 0.

The Methodists and Presbyterians of Ainsworth are engaged in  an interesting controversy. It is  alleged that the Presbyterians,borrowed the organ from the Methodist church which has not been  used for several years, and that the  ownership, of'.the instrument is now  in dispute. The Methodists have  placed the matter in the hands of a  lawyer.  bylaw an interesting point arose.  The instrument pi'ovides that in all  infectious diseases proper means of  fumigation must be carried out to  the satisfaction of the medical  health officer.^/-The list of diseases  classified as infectious did not include consumption and alderman  Arthur proposed that this should  be inserted. He supported his contention by stating that medical  men the world over recognized consumption as contagious, and that  personally he would as soon occupy  a house after a smallpox patient as  afteraconsumptive,unless thorough  disinfection was made. City solicitor Wilson was asked if the council  could legally include consumption.  He replied that the act gave the  corporation the power to take  measures to prevent the spread of  disease and if medical men would  sustain the classification of consumption as contagious, the council  would be quite within its prerogatives in making fumigation  imperative.
