 ������'���yy.��&%  ',~,,l-iiJ_$Z  DAILY EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR.  NELSON:  TUESDAY MOENIKG AUGUST U  J 900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  _ ��� r*-i  . r: '���**  1.4  CETTING CLOSE TO PEKIN  Despatch from Chaffee.  Washington, D. C, August 13.���  Tho American commander, iu a  China despatch of just three words  received at tho war department late  tbis afternoon, sent a thrill of  exultation aud expectancy throughout official quarters by announcing  liis arrival at Ho Si "Wu only 33  miles from Pekin last Thursday.  The last heard from him before  this was at Yang Tsun which had  been captured after a hard fight,  aud word of his movements since  then had been eagerly awaited.  On Thursday he was 18 miles beyond Yang Tsun. Lang Fang, the  place where the ill-fated Seymour  "expedition met its fate and turned  back, had been left behind. The  battle of Yang" Tsun was fought on  the sixth and the advance on Ho Si  Wu was accomplished on the ninth,  a march of 18 miles in three days.  . This was four days ago, and afc tho  same rate of progress Chaffee is  even now fairly within striking distance of the walls of Pekin. It is a  consummation which the war  department had awaited calmly,  aud, stirring . as the news  was that the American force  was,now nearing the gates of the  imperial city, secretary Root and  adjutant general Corbin evinced no  surprise as it accorded wifch calculations, although the advance has  been more rapid than was expected.  The despatch from Chaffee, which  contained so much in so few words  was as follows:  . "Che-Foo, August 13.���Arrived  -Ho Si AVu yesterday. (Signed) Chaffee."  Word of the advance soon spread  throughout tho officials' quarters.  In the enthusiasm of the moment  a report got abroad that .this was  ^the day for the actual arrival at  Pekin. But the war department  -had.uot a'word of the advance be-  yond'Ho Si Wu. At- the rate of  progress, six miles a day, made from  Yang Tsun to Ho Si Wu, about 24  ��� miles .would, have been covered m  ��� the last four-days, and.up. to,today,  this would still leave the international forces nine miles from Pekin.  Viewed from any standpoint the  adv-**ice to Ho Si Wu' was of the  utuic>st importance nofc only strategically, but also iu showing that  communication was open back to  Che-Foo, that the expected opposition from the Chinese hordes had  not been suflicient to prevent the  steady forward movement and in  the influence it would exert upon  the Chinese government. Brief as  the dispatch is, ib contains much  information beyond that specifically  contained in its few words. Although it is not stated what force  has arrived, the war department  accepts ifc to mean that this is the  international force which first took  Pei Tsang and then Yang Tsun.  lt has gone steadily forward along  the leffc bank of the Pei river, keep-  |���=-ingon-the:maiu-road-which-sku'ts  the river bank.  Afc Yang Tsung the railway  crosses the river aud branches off  to the west. '..-Now the forces have  left the railway far in the rear and  are depending upon the highway  and the river.  Ho Si Wu is a place of considerable size and the largest town between Tien-Tsin and Ching Chia  Wan. The latter place and Tung  Chow are the two cities of considerable size in the line of advance  after leaving Ho Si Wu.  As ifc has taken five days for general Chaffee to report the; advance  to Ho Si Wu, it is evident that wire  communication is not open to the  front. This was hardly to be expected, and the safe arrival of the  message afc least shows that a  certain measure of communication  is open.  Shortly after this despatch  arrived, another message from  general Chaffee, far more lengthy,  gave the melancholy result of the  Yang Tsung battle. The casualty  .list was given in detail with the  additional, information that the  dead had been buried at Yang Tsun,  and that the wounded had been  gent back to the hospital at Tien-  Tsin.  ���The reply of the United States  government to China's overtures of  peace was made public early in the  day, showing the firm and final  -position that had been taken.  Ifc developed during the day that  the reference to "the powers"  employed in the American reply  was not without a distinct meaning,  Exchanges between the various  powers have been going on con-,  stantly, and as a result the officials  had the satisfaction of knowing  late in the day that the position  of the United States had the approval and support of all the great  powers.  Several of the foreign representatives, including baron Speck von  Stcrnbeig, the German charge d'af-  faires, and Mr. de Woolant, the  Russian charge d'affaires, had extended conferences with Mr Adee  during the afternoon. This added  to the assurance of unanimity a-  niong the powers.  5 pairs.  GUN CLUB'S ANNUAL SHOOT  Next Saturday's Program.

August 13.  ���El Comercio of this city, confirming today the report of the forfeiture of the inter-oceanic canal company's concession, says: "We understand that the government of4 Nicaragua has officially informed the  Inter-oceanic Canal Company, the  Eyrie-Cragin syndicate, that its  concession was annulled on the  third instant in consequence of the  company's failure to deposit $400,  000 in gold/;   Fire on Atlantic Steamer.  .

Eoyalty on American Yacht.  : London, August 13.���The prince  and princess of Wales, duke and  duchess of York and princess Victoria of Wales today visited Mrs.  Ogden Goelets' steam yacht Nahma  at Cowes. >  Ammunition Sunning Low.  London, August 14.���All the  small arm ammunition used by the  allies will be in accordance with  the recommendation of the peace  conference, none being explosive or  expanding. The drain of China  and South Africa upon England's  stores is so great that every private firm has been enlisted to help  the government supply the demand, and to restore the reserve,  SITUATION  IS  DESPERATE  Latest Chinese Intelligence.  London, August 14���4 a. m.���The  British consul at Canton, says the  Daily Telegraph's correspondent  there, has received the following  message, dated August 6th, from  sir Claude MacDonald, the British  minister at Pekin:  " Our situation here is desperate.  In ten days our food supply will be  at an end. Unless we are relieved  a general massacre is probable. The  Chinese offer to escort us to Tien-  Tsin, but, rememberiug Cawnpore,  we refuse the offer.. There are over  200 European women and children  in this legation.  The Shang-Hai correspondent of  the Daily Express, wiring yesterday, says: "The allies at noon yesterday were within twenty miles of  Pekin."  General Chaffee's report, which is  the only authentic news received  here regarding the advance, located  the international forces about forty  miles from Pekin on Friday, and it  seems probable that the Shang-Hai  report is optimistic. It is scarcely  likely that the allies could advance  twenty miles in so many hours.  A Yang Tsung dispatch', dated  .August J7th, giving details regarding the capture of the place, says:  "The Russians and French held the  left, the British the left centre, the  Americans the right centre and  the Japanese the extreme right.  The British and-' Americans advanced on the village at a rapid  rate for 5000 yards under a severe  shell and rifle fire. ' The. Russians  opened,-and the British-American  advance became a , race for positions, culminating in a - brilliant  charge.  "The heaviest loss of the day was  sustained by the Americans, the  14th infantry having .nine killed,  sixty-two wounded and several  missing. The Bengal Lancers unsuccessfully attempted to cut off  the Chinese retreat." - ���  -Another -Yang Tsung "special  says: "Owing'to a~mistake the  British and Russian guns, shelled  tho 14th TJ. S. Infantry during" the  night, wounding ten."    v  Commenting on this occurrence  the Standard says : ".It ���is melancholy to learn that the losses of the  Americans, who seem to have borne  themselves with'conspicuous gallantry, were increased by a deplorable  error, in consequence of which one  of their regiments was pounded by  Russian and British cannon. The  incident emphasizes the necessity  of that close co-operation which is  not easily obtainable without a  single commander and a general  staff."  Official advices from Yokohama,  dated yesterday, say that the allies  propose to. advance on August 7th  to Nan Tsi Tsun, between Yang  Tsun aud Wu Seng. The Japanse  suffered no casualties at Yang  Tsun,  but the -official report says  th"ey-had-300-kilIedat"Pei"Tsangt   The Daily Mail's Sfc. Petersburg  correspondent declares that the  taking of Aigun has sealed the fate  of the rising in northeastern Manchuria;'  He adds:  " No prisoners were taken by the  Russians. Wholesale massacre was  the order of the day, and, when the  battle was over, .the Cossacks rode  over the field, killing the wounded  with the butt ends of their guns."  Once more the press of England  remarks upon the ability of the  American ^government to secure  news ahead of the rest of the  world.  "It is to general Chaffee," says  the Daily News, "fchat we are again  indebted for news from the front.  Not a single despatch from sir Alfred Gaselee has thus far been issued by the war office."  Commenting upon the American  reply to the Chinese overtures, the  Daily News says: "The reply is  more conciliatory than that of M.  Deleasse and in some respects it is  a little ambiguous. Still, its substance is the same. It may be observed that the United States government does not seem to separate  itself from the allies."-  which is much below par. All the  great ammunition firm's are working night and day in their efforts  to meet the government's wishes.  Bussia the Cause.  Tokio, August 13.���The opinion  is expressed in Japanese official  circles that Russia's occupation of  New-Chwarg justifies the dispatch  of British troops to Shang-Hai. It  is believed that the other powers  will be driven to take similar measures in other parts of China.  GRANBY SMELTER STARTS  <-    .     m__mmmmmmm___________^m *  Operated by Electricity.  . Grand Forks, August 13.���  [Special to The- Tribune.]���Today  witnessed the inauguration of operations at the^Granby smelter. The  event is not an unworthy one in  the history of Grand Forks * and is  being ��� fittingly celebrated. The  sampling mill commenced crushing-  ore this morning. ���'It has a capacity  of over 1000 tons per day. The  machinery worked' very smoothly.  S. Miner, the president, J. P.  Graves, the general manager, and  superintendent - Hodges received  many congratulations. The British  and American flags were hoisted at  the smelter in honor of the occasion.  vTonighfc.hundreds,'of electric lights  were turned on and the big reduction works are one blaze of light. ���  The furnaces .will be , blown in  within seven or eight * days.^. Their  joint,capacity will be about five  hundred tons per day. The motive  power is electrieifcy, which is generated" by a duplicate set of sixteen  inch turbine wheels, operating un- ���  der an effective head of water of  fiye feet. Adam was built across  the north" fork of Kettle river. - A  flume one mile long .carries the  water to the "power house where  "twelve hundred horse power is developed at low water. The saving,  as compared with steam power, is  estimated at' from $25,000 to $75,  009 per annum..  . A portion of this power will ultimately be transmitted to the various, mines of-,.the Miner-Graves  syndicate.. The smelter. will treat  the ores of the Knob'Hill, Old'Iron-  sides, Victoria, Majestic, City of  Paris and R. Bell mines. Its capacity within a year will be enlarged  to one thousand tons.per day. The  company has also secured a second  smelter site at Carson,. a point on  the international boundary line  about three miles west of Grand  Forks. *     The Day in the House.  Victoria, August 13���[Special to  The Tribune].���It was a dull day in  the legislature this afternoon. The  most important statement was that  of the finance minister, who said  the budget would* be down on  Thursday.- A resolution calling upon the Dominion ��� government to  make the naturalization act more  stringent, so as to prevent the Japanese from abusing it, was passed  bya-large^inajority. "ErVrBod^"  well, a prominent lawyer, had some  hot words with Joe Martin in the  railway committee today. Bod-  well interrupted Martin, who is  bitter against him on account of  political reasons. Mr Martin quoted rules to show that counsel,  though allowed to address the  committee, must not interrupt discussion by members, and Martin  'won his point. Curtis of Rossland  failed to*carry liis motion to restrict  the borrowing powers of railways  to the cost of building the road.  . Cascade Water Power Bought.  Grand Forks, August 13���[Special to The Tribune].���It is reported  on good authority that the B, C.  Mines in Summit camp has purchased the water power at Cascade.  The power is being developed by  the Cascade Water and Light Co.  The falls are capable of developing  twenty thousand horse power. The  principal owners of the B. C. mine  are Jas. Ross and Clarence J.  McCuaig, Montreal.  R. Bell Mine Bought.  Grand Forks, August 13���[Special to the Tribune].���According to  a record filed in the mining recorder's office, Jay P.

Columbus, Ohio, August 13.���  Rosselyn Ferrel, the murderer of  express messenger Lane, will be  taken tomorrow morning to Nashville, Union county, in which his  crime was committed, for trial.  BRITISH SOLDIERS STARVE  Cursed by Bed Tape.  London, August 4.���[Correspondence of the Associated Press.]���A.  G. Hale, representative in South  Africa of the Daily News, is the  latest war correspondent to attack  the methods and the red tape of the  British war office.   He says:  "Let me tell you how our army  in South Africa is treated by' the  .incompetent people in the good city  of London. I pledge my word as a  man- and a journalist that every  written word is true. I will add  nothing nor detract from, nor set-  down aught in malice. If my statements are proved false then let me  be scourged with the tongue and  pen of scorn from every decent  Briton's home and hearth forever  after," for he who lies about his.  country at such an hour as this is,  of all traitors the vilest.  " I will deal now particularly  with the men who are acting under  the command of lieutenant general  Rundle. This good _ soldier and  courteous -gentleman lias to hold a  frontage line from Wilburg via  Senekal, almost to the borders of  Basutoland. His whole front,  extending nearly a hundred miles is  threatened constantly by an active,  dashing,-'-determined enemy, an  enemy who knows the country far  better than any English fox-liuntiug  squire knows the ground he hunts  oA*er season after season.  ."To hold this vast line intact  general Rundle has to march from  point to point, as his . scouts warn  him of the movements of the tireless foe.  "General Rundle's task is a col-  :ossal one, and any sane man would  ! think that ��� gigantic efforts would  ���be made to keep him amply supplied wifch food for his soldiers..  But such is not the case. The men  are absolutely starving. Many of  the infantry 'men are so weak that  they can barely stagger along under the weight of their soldierly  ���equipment. They are worn -to  shadows and move with weary,  listless", footsteps. People high up  "in authority may deny tliisj but he"  who denies it sullies the truth.  This is what the soldiers get to eat,  what they have been getting to eat  for a long time past and what they  are likely to get for a long time to  come unless England rouses herself  and bites to the bone the people  who are responsible for it:  " One pound of raw flour, which  the soldiers have to cook after a  hard day's march, is served out to  each man every alternate day.  Each day he eats one pound of biscuits. In this country there is no  fuel excepting a little ox dung dried  by the. sun. If a soldier is lucky  enough to pick up a little he can go  to the nearest water, of whicli there  is plenty, mix his cake without  yeast or baking powder and make  some sort of a wretched mouthful.  He. gets one, pound of- raw meat  daily, which nine times out of ten  he cannot cook, and there his supper ends.  "What has become of the rations  of rum, of sugar, of sugar, of tea, of  cocoa, of groceries generally? Ask  afc the snug little railway siding,  where the goods are stacked and  forgotten. Ask in the big stores in  Cape Town and other seaport  towns. Ask in your own country,  where countless thousands of  pounds' worth of foodstuffs lie rotting in the warehouses, bound up  and tied down with red tape banj  dages. Ask���yes, ask it, but  don't stop afc asking���damn  somebody high up in power.  Don'fc let some wretched underling  be made the scapegoat of this criminal state of affairs, for the taint of  this shameful thing rests upon you,  upon every Briton whose home,  privilege and prosperity are being  safeguarded by these famishing  men. The folk in authority will  probably tell you that general  Rundle and his splendid fellows are  so isolated that food cannofc be  obtained for them. I say that is  false."  Hale goes on to tell of a foraging  trip he and a fellow-correspondent  made 18 hours out of general Rundle's camp, without escort, securing plenty of supplies, and without  show of'molestation. He censures  the transport people for their lack  of activity.  Baptist Missions Demolished.  Hong Kong, August 13.���The  United States consul general here,  Mr. Wildman, has received a telegram   from   the    Baptist   mission  Tung, saying that three more  chapels have been demolished  and that there has been much  looting of missionary property. Tho  dispatch adds that an attempt was  made upon the life of the preacher  there, and the officials are taking  no action in the matter. The  troubles are attributed to the  " Vegetarian Society," so-called.  London Copper Market.  London, 'August' 13.���Copper  closed, spot, ��74, 8s.. 9d.; futures,  ��74, 17s., 0d.; market firm.  PUBLIC SCHOOLS REOPENED  Prospects for the Session.  The central and Hume addition  schools reopened for the fall session  yesterday after the six weeks summer vacation. At the central the  attendance was comparatively light  and the day's work was largely j  confined to arranging the classes  for the session. Principal Soady  has a class of seven pupils in high  school work and others will probably take up this work. The  teaching   staff  is   unchanged save  ���. *.f  '*���*���*,  ..-���JI  ���3.  ���Itf'T'  V��t-T  that Miss Annie  O'Reilly's place  division IV.

The , government has '* been  petitioned to place the"' central  school here under the control of the  city, recommendations to this effect  having been made by the trustees  and the city council. An indication of the> government's policy is  looked for at an early date.  Greenwood-Ore Shipments.  Greenwood,' August 13.���For the  month ending'today the ore shipments from the Old Ironsides and  Knob Hill mines to - the Granby  smelter total about 4,500 tons. The  'first carload shipment.of the Buck-  horn, of Deadwood camp, was sent  today to Trail. The return of the"  initial shipment car, from tbe Sunset, of the same camp, of ore taken  from the 200 foot.Ievel ran slightly  under $20 to the ton, principally in'  gold. The returns-are considered  excellent.   St. Eugene Shipments.  Moyie, August 13. ��� Messrs.'  Gooderham, Blaekstock and party  reached here last'night and examined the Sfc. Eugene mine which is  controlled by them. The St. Eugene  in the month' of July shipped 2396  tons of ore, and, it is claimed, produced more lead during that month  than any.other silver lead mine in  the United States ' or Canada  excepting the Silver King of Utah.  Machadodorp Evacuated,  London, August 14.���The Boers  have left Machadodorp, according  -to-the-Lorenzo-Marquez correspond-"  ent of the Daily Mail, and occupied  Waterval Onder in force. A considerable portion of commandant  general Louis Botha's camp and  stores at Dalmanthua was destroyed by fire on; Sunday. According to another special dispatch,  Barberton has been proclaimed the  new seat of the Transvaal government.  Many Rebels Killed.  Kingston, Jamaica, August 13.���  There was heavy fighting last week  south of Cartagena, Colombia.  The rebels lost heavily, aud  retreated.

WAGES RAISED BY COUNCIL:           *- ���<_  Last Night's Session.  At last night's meeting of the city-  council a deputation consisting of ���  W. M. Allen, S. Thompson and J."

Carried., It is expected that the  visit of the governor-general will  -be-made about September-20th.        -.  Aldermen Hall and Arthur  moved that a six-foot sidewalk be ,  . laid on the east side of Josephine  street, from the rear of the Methodist church to Carbonate street.  Carried.  Alfred Hine recently purchased  the city stables, the intention of  the council at the time of the sale  being that the city should build  new stables in the park reservation. The how stables wereT never  built, and now Mr. Hine wishes the  council to vacate the building or  pay a rental of $10 per month. It  was resolved that the purchase  money, $25, bo extended Mr. Hine.  Alderman Irvine drew the attention of the council to the condition  of the city wharf, a considerable  section of the deck of which has  floated away during the high  water.  On motion of aldermen McKillop  and Wilson the city engineer was  authorized to repair the wharf and  post notices warning all drivers to  proceed no faster than a walk on  the wharf.

Tbis will but be carrying  out the original intention of the  government in making the park  reserve. A very enjoyablebreathing  spot can be made of the present  reserve, but as matters stand the corporation cannot legally make the  expenditures necessary. The third  matter which is to be taken up is  the carrying out of the wish of the  citizens to secure control of the  public school. This request, is  coupled with the suggestion that  the government convey block 49 to  the city for school purposes and  that a grant of $15,000 be made for  the building of a necessary high  school.   '   The inland revenue department  has issued circulars to the' effect  that steps will be taken to enforce  the provisions of the Adulteration  Act, and that baking powders are  now defined as "food." The circular states that a systematic collection of baking powders will be  made in December, when proceedings will be instituted against all  vendors of baking powders found-  to contain alum. ' It will now rest  I with the local dealers' to ascertain  what baking powders do not contain alum, and get rid of' those  that do before December.  I  the Rev. Spencer Lewis of the West  China mission. The message, which  came from Shang-Hai, was to the  effect that the missionaries who  left Chung King about ten days  ago, had arrived safely at Shang-  Hai on tho 13th instant. This message was received with relief, as  Chung King is some 1500 miles up  the Yang Tse Kiang river and is a  very dangerous place. Of all the  missionaries now in China under  thoJ direction of the Methodist  society, the only ones supposed to be  still in danger are those iu Pekin,  Avho number eighteen. So far  none of the Methodist missionaries  are known to have been killed.  Robert Speer, one of the secretaries of the Presbyterian board of  foreign missions, received a" cable  despatch today from Charles F.  Johnson, M.D. It was dated from  the German city of Tsintau and  was as follows: " Ichowfu looted."  This is in tho province of Shan  Tung. The property of the Presbyterian mission there is estimated to  have been worth about $20,000.  The buildiugs included two hospitals. The missionaries themselves  escaped from Ichowfu to Tsintau  some time ago.  Fires Out at Last.  Tawas City, Michigan, August  13.���The forest fires throughout;  Iosco county are quenched.

Another effort is being made by  the city council to straighten out  several unsettled matters of business between the corporation and  the provincial  government.     The  first of these is the matter of title  to the foreshore or so much of it as  has not been already acquired by  the Canadian Pacific railway.   The  matter of the vesting in the city of  the title to the foreshore,  east of  Ward streot, was brought to the  attention   of  the   Semlin government last year, but before any decision was reached on the question  the    government    was    defeated.  This    matter    has     now     been  laid     before     the     present    administration,1 and   in    the    event  of    favorable   consideration    the  city  will    come    into   possession  of what will some day be a valuable,  asset.   Another matter which.will  be urged upon the government will  be the vesting in the corporation of  the    title  to    the   present  park  Strike on the Quilp.'  Some wonderfully rich ore has  been found in the Quilp, but its extent is still unknown, says a Republic,      Washington,      dispatch.  Work is progressing satisfactorily.  The manager is in fine spirits and  he has good cause for it in the excellent condition of the mine.   Recent   assays   have   run    into   the  thousands.   All the machinery of  the. Tom Thumb. compressor plant  is    in    place    and    in    complete  running   order.       The    sump    is  being cleaned out, and tomorrow  morning everything will be in readi-  -ness-to-prosecute-work-on���a���much-  more extensive scale than has been  possible before.   The   station   has  been timbered and drifting will be  pushed both north and south on the  ledge, in the new shaft.    A crosscut  will also be pushed to connect with  the drift in the old workings from  the   bottom   of the 150-foot level.  The mine is looking as well as its  most ardent friends could desire.  5000 Shares Molly Gibson Stock for Sale  H. R. CAMERON  Baker. Street, Nelson. Agent and Appraiser.

To what extent theocracy controls the Chinese government and  may have played an important part  in the present uprising in China is  shown by Mr. Charles Denby, late  \' United States minister to that em-  *>pire.   He affirms that no nation in  'the world in its administration of  the law acknowledges so directly its  responsibilities to the deity���that  is, to the Chinese deity,  Shangti,  who is not an entity, like Jupiter  and Jehovah, but simply pantheism, Shangti representing heaven,  earth,   and   the   terrestrial   gods.  The attributes of the Chinese deity  differ radically from those of the  Christian deity.   Mr. Denby saw an  altar   in   the   Temple   of  Heaven  struck by   lightning.     The   next  day the officiating priests were decapitated   upon the ground   that  heaven would not have destroyed  the temple unless a sin had been  committed which had to be punished by the state.    By the same line  of reasoning the insane are punished, though it is   freely  admitted  they do not know what they are  doing.   They are slowly and deliberately cut to pieces, and the severity of the punishment is justified  by the statement that "the deity,  would not have made the man insane unless he or some one connected with him had committed a crime,  aud that crime must be punished."  Such a   deity the   emperor not  alone worships but asserts the right  i to interpret all his decrees.    When  he ascends the throne he says :   "I  receive charge   of heaven's great  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay/ U. S.,  Atlin, B.C., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  concerns." He is also, the high  priest of the nation, and at every  winter solstice worships this nonentity, Shangti, in secret, performing the ancient rites and inviting  him to banquet with his imperial  ancestors, as was done 6000 years  ago.

Shangti worship is the religion of  the state, and the state is all-powerful.   The people have three religions, Confucianism, Buddhism, and  Taoism,   or Rationalism.     Among  the upper and learned classes Confucianism is most popular, because  it is not a religion at all, but only a  philosophy.    Mr. Denby says Confucius admitted that "he did  not  understand much about the gods,  and that the obligations of man lay  rather in doing his duty to his relatives and society than- in worshiping spirits unknown.   'Not knowing  even life,' said he 'how can we know  death?'"   From which it would appear that Confucius was a sensible  old philosopher, and that it would  be much better for China if it were  governed by Confucianism instead  of by   the Shangti theocracy.   If  the powers in the final settlement  can manage to abolish the Manchu  dynasty, and with it the Shangti  theocracy, there will be more hope  for China.   With an administration  controlled- by such a religion as that  of   this    extraordinarily   perverse  deity there is neither hope for a  settled state of affairs as regards  foreigners   nor    any   encouraging  prospect for missionary enterprises.  Who the Culprits Are.  Toronto Star.  The report received at Ottawa  that private J; A. Hopkins has been  sentenced to ten years' penal servitude in South Africa, for a treasonable offence, will be heard with  painful surprise by the friends of  the young man. That he should be  concerned in any such scrape is  deemed simply incredible. Hopkins  is only 24 years of age, and has  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street.  J. M.

His  home is at 58.Robinson street. .He  enlisted with...the Royal,Canadian  Dragoons about two years ago, and  was. among the first to volunteer  for active service with the second  contingent. His last letter home  was dated June 2nd., Private Wil-  liam Pearce, the other man convicted of treason, is a" resident of Bradford. He was not a member of the  permanent force, before he volunteered for service.  The Copper Market.  Mining and Metallurgical Journal.  This   column has from the first  consistently combated the theory,  rather strenuously maintained in;  some quarters, that, copper must-go.  the way of other metals and suffer  severe declines   in value.    Such a  view has the support of analogy,  aud it cannot be deuied that speculation has played a ccrtaiu part iu  holding up copper quotations.  But  the "bulls"   have had nature on  their side, and the.basic facts have-  been with   them.     They   are still  with them, so far as we can see, and  in our judgment the talk of "liquidation" in copper and a sudden descent to old-time prices is nonsensical.    Our copper production for .the  fi rst six: months of the year iucreasr,  ed 10,000 tons, or eight per cent  over last year, while our exports in  the same period, increased nearly  onerthird.,  The foreign demand for.  American copper is insatiable, and  ���we are. how exporting, regularly  two-thirds of our total production.  Sports Tend to Good Morals.  A year ago the school principals  of Stockholm, Sweden, were instructed to encourage the gathering of pupils in the public parks  after school hours. for the < purpose  of playing outdoor games, and several of the larger boys, in, each  school were officially selected to  lead the games. The innovation  proved  popular, and many   boys  who formerly were in the habit of  spending    their     late   afternoons  smoking cigarettes and learning bad  habits.on  the street corners may.  now.be seen each evening playing  baseball, football and other athletic  games.   Tho board of education of  Stockholm thinks so well of the experiment that it has  recently appointed three men teachers to the  places of superintendents of   outdoor   exercises.   It   will hereafter,  be their duty, to get together all  pupils who are^ willing at the close  of school and' lead" them   to the  parks, where, under the auspices of  the board, games will be provided  daily during the season from 4 to 8  p. m.

The advance in pay was made on  the recommendation of  engineers  Proctor and  Sullivan.    Forty cars  of steel for the road are now lying  in the yards here.  Yesterday afternoon the task of  lowering the ten-inch gas main at  the corner of Baker and Railway  streets was successfully accomplished. Without disturbing the  flow of gas, the company lowered  175 feet of the main an average of  eight feet to reach the new level of  the street whicli is graded to make  an approach to the C. P.

The first Nelson & Fort Sheppard freight to be delivered in the  center of Nelson came into the  C. P. R. yards yesterday over the  connection recently made between  the two roads. The C. P. R. handles the cars from the N. & F. S.  depot at present but eventually  the latter road will handle its  own cars on the union depot plan.  The level of the lake has dropped to within a few feet of low  water mark. The deck of the tee  on the C. P. R. dock is now in  sight for the first time in several  months and within a short time  the steamers will be landing there  instead of at the main wharf as at  present.  W. P.

The contract for the  new round house will be let today.  General manager Finch of the St  Eugene mine left yesterday for  Moyie. He stated that the output  of the mine for August would be  materially.. reduced   by    lack of  water. The snowfall in the Moyie  , district.was comparatively light last  , winter and what snow fell went off  early. The drought in July almost  exhausted the springs supplying  the mill and heavy rains are  needed to replenish the streams.  Two carloads of concentrates  from the Ymir mine arrived yester-  dayfor the Hall Alines smelter. The  big stamp mills at the Ymir are  running steadily and it is probable  that regular shipments will be  made to the Nelson smelter, as was  tho case last winter.  G. C. Hodge, district manager of  the Kootenay Lake Telephone  company has returned from Sheep  creek, where a three mile section of  the line was burned^ out in the  recent bush fires. He leaves today  to superintend the construction of  a line from Greenwood to Grand  Forks. The line will be a metallic  circuit taking in White's camp, and  will require sixty miles of wire.  A complimentary social and tea  in honor of Rev. G. J. C. and Mrs.  White will be held in the Baptist  church, this evening from 7:30 on.  The public are cordially invited.  ���'��� The trades and labor council ball,  which was announced for Wedes-  day evening, has been postponed  till Thursday evening, August 23rd.  The local .

The Duncan Mines has suspended  development upon the Granite  mine for the present. Work will  be continued upon the Poorman  and  Royal    Canadian  properties.  The Granite mill will be kept going  on ore from the Poorman and Royal  Canadian, there being sufficient ore  blocked out in these properties to  keep it running for some time.  The annual picuic of St. Saviour's  Sunday school will be held today.  The steamer Moyie has been chartered for the occasion and she will  leave the city wharf at 9 a. m.,  reaching Procter at 11 aud returning at 0.30 p. m.
