 W^j^'^.ft^^^  fr*Tifflniiirr*"*--In��^ '"'"''"''''"  ..: ��� y:y^.:. -\*f:;, % j^7^0<-^  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  -������ "tin  y$i  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  WEDNESDAY MORNING AUGUST 22 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  DISCUSS CHINESE AFFAIRS  Washington Cabinet Meets.  "Washington, August 21.���The  cabinet session today practically  opened the consideration of the  momentous questions growiug out  of the capture of Pekin and the  war in China. Until today's ses-  siou the absorbing question has  been tho safety of minister Conger  and the legationers at Pekin. Now,  however, that has given place to  problems of a more intricate-and  far-reaching character touching the  very existence of the Chinese empire, and the part which the American government is to take in the  reconstruction of that country.  The meeting today was devoted  entirely to the Chinese situation.  Several questions were awaiting  attention. First of these was the  application of Li Hung Chang for  the appointment of minister Conger  or some other commissioner to  negotiate for the cessation of hostilities. The decision arrived at  was to reject tho appeal, and a  reply of this character Avill be sent  to minister Wu to be forwarded to  Li Hung -Chang.  Tho moving cause for /this action  is that the American government  is at present A*ery much in the dark  as to whether there is an existing  , government in China. With the  capital in . the hands of the allies,  the emperor and empress dowager  fugitives in hiding and the entire  governmental fabric paralyzed,  there is no evidence of au authority adequate to conduct negotiations and secure results which will  bo final and binding.  It was stated by members of the  cabinet that the Chinese establishment, instead of being a government, appears to be an enormous,  headless affair without knowledge  of what is for its best good' aud  without power to enforce its wishes.  With the recognized ruler in flight,  no one seems to know why anybody  is directing its affairs. As China is  an absolute monarchy without any  legislative branch, the emperor and  ;��� empress "dowager ��are",-all-pu\,verrii'Jr  and practically they are the empire of China. Under the present  remarkable conditions, the United  States will act with extreme caution  ii^Vhatever steps ifc may take to-  v&rd a solution of the pending  problems.  In the meantime, there is reason  to~believo that the United States  and the powers interested will keep  their armed forces on the ground,  so that order may be maintained  and at least a semblance of stable  government brought out of the existing chaos.  The-reply of the United States  government to the appeal of the  viceroys of Nankin and Hunan that  no indignities be offered the emperor and empress dowager is a  formal acknowledgment of the receipt of the communication with  a satisfactory assurance thafc no  jndig_ni_ties_=__win^be^_offered���the-  persons of their majesties. The  ^reply is couched in the polite language of diplomacy, but it is understood that it does not in any way  commit the government to a-efrain  from imposing on the emperor and  empress dowager auy penalty that  subsequently might be decided  upon in case ifc is proved that they  were directly responsible for tho  recent atrocities. This question of  fixing responsibility where it belongs and imposing any punishment  that may be deemed fitting has not  received formal consideration as  yet.  The answer wifch which the two  viceroys' appeal is mefc, accordingly  is a diplomatic assurance that the  rights of the emperor, and empress  dowager will be protected, but does  not impose any barrier to a proper  punishment such as may be sanctioned by civilized usage for any  offense which hereafter may be  held to call for an'accounting. This  is the interpretation given the reply by the cabinet officials tonight.  The question of responsibility will  have to be worked out slowly.  The cabinet had before it a message from minister Conger received  last night. After the meeting the  state department made public portions of the dispatch as follows:  "United States Legation,  Pekin (undated) via Che-Foo, August 20.���To the secretary of state,  Washington.���Saved. Relief arrived today. Entered the ci fcy with;  little." trouble. . I do not know  where the imperial family is. Except the deaths already reported,  all Americans are alive and well.  jDesperafce efforts were made last  night to exterminate us. Mitchell,  an American soldier, a Russian and  a Japanese were wounded: a German killed. (Signed) Conger, by  Fowler, Che-Foo."  It had been hoped that minister  Conger's advices, as well as those  from general Chaffee, would be  ample by this time, in order to  afford the Washington officials full  opportunity to deal wifch the perplexing questions raised by the  Chinese disturbances. General  Chaffee has not yet been heard from  and the Conger message was not as  complete as tho authorities had desired. Ifc was stated today that  messages may be sent from here to  the United States' representatives  in China specifically calling for more  detailed information.  Aside from the consideration  given to particular questions raised  by the Conger dispatch, the appeal  of Li Hung Chang and that of the  southern viceroys, the cabinefc also  had time to look over the broad  field of Chinese affairs. Thereiwas  no effort, however, at this early  stage to outline a general policy.  Thafc will come later and will be, to  a considerable extent, the growth  of the government's action upon  the various issues that may be presented. ��  attackIecunITchinese  Missionaries' Story.  New York, August 21.���Dr. G.  P. Smith, medical missionary of the  London mission, who was attached  to the hospital at Tien Tsin arrived  in the city today on his way to  England. He gave the highest  praise to the troops of all nationalities who took part in defending the  foreigners. '"  He left Tien-Tsin some time before the city was captured, bufc he  was there all the time np to July  oth. The fighting began on June  17th.  On the 10th he said the Chinese  could easily have overwhelmed the  foreign settlement if they had  attacked the Manchu college. The  .foi*eicn_trp.ons_J;hen. numbered not  much over 200, aiid-that part of the"  line of'defence was left unoccupied.  Dr. Smith also said: "I have seen  ifc stated that the allies- began the  "attack, bufc that is incorrect. The  allies sent an ultimatum, demanding the surrender of the Manchu college by 3 p. ni. on June 17th. At 2:30  p. m. the Chinese opened fire. They  fired afc Gordon Hall, where they  knew the women and children were  gathered. The first shot struck the  building, but low down and the  Chinese could not see it. Then they  elevated the gun and they did not  get the range again that day. The  Chinese got information from spies  all the time. Some spies even let  carrier pigeons loose from the foreign section. The hospital was not  injured at all, though shells struck  all around us. We prayed that  none of the Avounded iri the hospital should be hit, and none of them  were."       '  Inquiry Lee and Dickson.  Lieutenant G. S. Beer received a  telegraphic messagef rom lieutenant-  colonel Benson, D. O. C, yesterday  asking him to wire information as  to the next of kin of W. J. G. Dickson and A. S. Lee, Avho went to  South Africa Avitli the first Canadian contingent. This is generally  thought to indicate that the men  have been killed or died in hospital.  Mr. Beer telegraphed to ask Avhether  Dickson and Lee were reported  dead. The reply Avas that colonel  Benson had not been advised as to  this fact.   Seymour Gave No Quarter.  Berlin, August 21.���General  attention has been attracted by an  interview published here in the  Frankfurt Frankfurter Zeitung between that paper's correspondent  at Tokio and lieutenant von Krohn,  who Avas wounded in. admiral Seymour's expedition. Lieutenant von  Krohn says: "At the beginning the  Avounded Boxers were sent to the  hospitals at Tien-Tsin. but ib was  seen later that this was a mistake,  hence an order was given to kill all  Chinamen able to stand, and not  even to spare the wounded, but  particularly to make absolutely no  prisoners whatever."  Sailors' Strike Ended.  Marseilles, August 21.���The  strike of the sailors, Avhich began  here about ten days ago, came 'to  an end this afternoon, when 2��n  agreement was reached. Work  will be renewed on all the steamship lines tomorroAV. |  HOW THEY CAPTURED PEKIN  Details of the Tight.  Pekin, August 14.���Via Che-Foo,  August 21.���The American and  Russian flags were planted on the  east wall of Pekin at 11 o'clock this  morning. The Indian troops entered the British legations at 1  o'clock and the Americans at 3  o'clock. There was a joyful reception from the wall. The emaciated  tenants could have lasted but a  little longer. They had only three  days', rations. The Chinese had  been attacking furiously for two  days. 'Four thousand shells fell in  the legation during the siege.  Sixty-five were killed and 160  Avounded. ���  The Japanese began the" battle  before daylight and they are still  fighting about the north wall, Avhere  part of the Chinese are defending  the imperial cifcy. The Japanese  casualties have not yet been ascertained. The Russians had five killed  and 12 wounded. The Americans  and British had a few wounded.  The plan wa3 to make a general  attack tomorrow and' the troops  were arriving at camp five miles  east last night. They were completely exhausted .and slept in the  cornfields in the rain. -  The generals, however, alarmed  afc the sounds of a heavy attack on  the legations, pushed forward inde-'  pendeutly, the British, Americans  and French on the lef t of the river  and the Russians and Japanese on  the right. Beginning at 2 o'clock  this morning the Japanese diverted  the brunt of the resistance to the  northern city, their artillery engaging the Chinese heavily there. The  Americans and British met with  little resistance until they entered  the city, Avhere there was street  fighting. Reilly's battery attempted to breach the inner wall.  The troops finally entered the foreign settlement through the canal.  The Chinese had continually violated'the armistice. The food supply sent to' the legations - by the  empress dowager was sufficient for  one~aay.~-"~T~~~-~~     "'" - - -   -"- :: -"  ELECTRIC LIGHTS ON AGAIN  Work on the .Dam.  The electric lights on the circuit  supplying the business portion of  the city ,were in operation last  night, and the city engineering  staff hopes to keep the system in  Avorking order until the repairs to  the dam are complete, and all the  circuits once more in shape. They  propose to replace the section of  the- dam which went out, with the  change that the new portion will  be at an angle of aboufc 35 degrees,  so that the Avhole will have a purchase on the rock bluff in the center. The city engineer does not  believe-that- he_will_find���rdck~~at~  the east end of the dam, although  several feet will be excavated to  find a solid basis if possible.  Failing a rock foundation the  crib work will be heavily weighted  and padded with clay on the face  to prevent; leakages. The leak  Avhich caused the trouble had been  known to exist for some, time before the crisis occurred and great  efforts tad been made to stop the  hole. On several occasions, when  the men left at night, the dam was  perfectly water-tight, bub next  morning, the Avater would be going  through as before some distance  beloAV the woodwork of the structure. The theory is advanced, that  the water seeped through a substratum of gravel. The city engineer, however, guarantees to  build a dam which will last.  .Russia Borrows Money,  London, August 22.���It is reported in Odessa, according to a  dispatch to the Daily Express, that  in consequence of the strain upon  Russia's financial resources owing  to the Chinese campaign, a specially accredited representative of  the Russian minister of finance, M.  De Witte, has concluded or is about  to conclude an arrangement with a  syndicate of all the great insurance  companies in the United States for  a loan of 300,000,000 roubles.  Wild West Show Not Billed.  Milavaukee, August 21.���A special to the Sentinel from Prairie du  Chien, Wisconsin, says: Vavra, a  special policeman, shot Charles Triangle, an artilleryman of the Wild  West show, during an argument  tonight. The affair caused a riot.  Vavra escaped to a saloon under  the protection of marshal Lindner  and policensKan 3IerrilI, who were  seriously injured. The mob of the  Wild West show broke into the  saloon just as VaA'ra left it and  completely demolished the interior  of the building; ' ��� Vavra's house  was also Avrecked. An appeal was  also made to colonel Cody (Buffalo  Bill) who quieted the mob. Everything Avas quiet at midnight and  no further trouble* was expected. r  Hop Fiend Suicides.  London, August 22.���An inquest  held at Liverpool yesterday inquiring into the ci'rcur-stances attend:  ing the death of Kslly, a shipping  clerk, revealed the'fact that he came  to England from Pasadena, California, Avhere his wife and child now  reside.

Berlin, August 21.���Count von  Goetzen'has been promoted to the  rank "of captain on the general staff  of the German army.  LATESTIJEWSTROM CHINA  Americans Have Dash.  London, August 22.���In the news  that reaches London - this morning  direct from Chinathere is nothing  to confirm the report that the empress dowager has been run to  earth. The foreign envoys, according to the Shang-Hai correspondent  of the Daily Express, are proceeding to Tien-Tsin. }The same correspondent avers tha.t-.the sacred city  Avas entered on August 15th, two  days   earlier    than    rear-admiral  Bruce reported.- 7  "The flags of the allies," says the  Shang-Hai correspondent of the  Daily Mail, ...wiring yesterday, "are  floating over the' imperial palace.  Street fighting,; however, continues.  Considerable assistance in' the capture of Pekin -wasRendered by'4000  "ami cu- -liti w v _������ Christians:.;, -The.  legations Avere enabled to hold out  by purchasing ammunition from  the Chinese."  The American action in refusing  to .deal Avith Li Hung Chang in the  peace proposals meets wifch -unanimous approval afc the hands of the  morning papers. The Standard  says :  "We imagine that the other  powers Avill take the same course,  at any rate until earl Li produces  satisfactory evidence of his authority to negotiate."  The Daily Chronicle says : "Mr.  Conger has at last opened the eyes  of the state department to the real  character of the orientals."  -.  The Daily Express prints this  morning, a long letter said to have  been wrifcten by vice-admiral Seymour in which he stoutly defends  his action_in_ady_ancing_to_the-reIief-  of the legationers. Among other  things admiral Seymour is said to  have written :  "Two or three times our prospects were very dark and disaster  seemed probable. Yet I never regretted that I had started, as I  could not have respected myself if  I had not done so."  Referring to the difficulties of  controlling mixed troops and their  characteristics, he says: "The Germans were admired most, but for  dash aud go none surpassed or perhaps equalled the Americans. The  French had no particular rapprochement with any other nationality.  The Germans and Russians Avere inclined to hold together, but the  Arnericans were AVith us always."  Maner Won Easily.

London, August   21.���Truth tomorrow Avill publish correspondence^  advisiug that paper of the seizure  at Pretoria of a compromising letter  from Montague White, former consul-general of the   South African  Republic in London, to secretary of  state Reitz, dated August 4th, 1899,  and tAvo letters from Henry Labou-  chere to Mr. White dated August  2ud. 1899, and August 4th,  1899,  which Mr. White appears to have  enclosed to secretary Reitz, and a  letter of Joseph Chamberlain's, the  secretary of state for  the colonies,  inviting Mr.  Labouehere to' offer  explanations or observations thereon and Mr. Labouchere's reply.  ��� Mr. Labouchere's letters are brief  and amount to advice to the Transvaal to- gain time by acceptance of  the proposed commission  to settle  the   franchise   question,    etc.,   together Avith an expression of opinion  from sir Henry Campbell-Banner-  man, the Liberal leader in thechouse  of    commons,   and   the   Liberals  generally, that the British cabinet  proposed the appointment of the  commission Avith a view of giving  Mr. Chamberlain a chance to "climb  down," and that the cabinet was  determined to have no war. \  He also said: "The paper has a  great opportunity to give Joe an*  other fall.

GERMANY AND MEDIATION  Various Press Opinions.  FITZ WILL JIOTBE BOUGHT  Refused a Big Offer.  Neav York, August 21.���The  World tomorrow will say that Bob  Fitzsimmons has been offered $100,'-  000 to lose his fight Avifch Sharkey  and fchat Fitz treated the suggestion  Avith contempt. The proposition is  said to have come in a letter from  Montreal Avhich Avas signed "R. S.,"  and Avhich Fitz declares he knows  to be genuine. The Avriter assured  the ex-champion he was worth  $180,000 iu cold cash_and gaA'  refeicnces. He explained Iioav  much the sum named Avould mean  to Fitz and endeavored to show  how no chances Avould be taken by  accepting it. The Canadian said lie  Avas eager to arrange matters in  order that he might begin making  bets at 10 to 8 odds. In speaking  of the offer, Fitz said :  "I am money proof. To show I  speak the truth, just before my  fight with "Corbett at Carson City, I  Avas offered $75,000 to lay down  and I preferred the SAVeets of victory to defeat and ill-gotten gains.  Two bankers tried to buy me there,  and they had the money ready to  pay over as soon as I consented. I  refused to talk Avith them at all  just as I refuse to meet the man  who offers me $100,000 to bunco the  public this time."  Fitz declined to make the letter  from the Montreal person public in  its entirety because he did not care  to compromise a friend even though  on evil bent.  Mysterious Wreckage.

Li Hung Chang's latest request  to Washington ' for mediation, a  high official of the German foreign  office said to the correspondent of  the Associated Press today: "Germany is waiting' to see what an-  sAver the United States will make.  If Washington is convinced that  earl Li represents any responsible  Chinese-government, it could, of  course, undertake a mediatory role  for the establishment of peace, but  Germany is confident any  case' the United' States will not  separate themselves from the con-'  cert of the powers." .  Asked if China now offered a'  satisfactory indemnity for the murder  of  baron . von   Ketteler,' the  German minifA<p��,-w}K��<-.h��r.G*>rm��.riVr  wouidf be willing to make peace.  The official replied : - "Matters have  not yet advanced far enough to go  into that, but there is no question  of territorial conquest or of inflicting heavy blows, but merely of reestablishing orderly conditions in  China."  The German papers are discussing  what is to be done next. The  Vossische Zeitung asserts that  Germany will not go beyond the  other powers in demanding expiation for Avrongs��done, but will go as  far as the rest. Ifc says that "the  demand of satisfaction must not  degenerate into a brutal cry for  vengeance."  The VorAvaerts, a Socialist organ,  sharply blames the government for  refusing all information concerning  its future policy in China.      _^  ���TheBerliner'Post'iriaintains'that  ifc is premature to think that  diplomatic negotiations alone are  now sufficient to secure satisfaction,  for the murders in the past and  guarantees for the future.

The  effect of a division of this kind  would in a measure depend upon  which of the two old political parties secured the co-operation of the  labor members. In the present  house they practically hold the  balance of power as against  the two contending parties for  Dominion supremacy. Ifc is the  knowledge of this which makes the  party managers careful about  making a move.  With the stories that come from  China, of the British and American  soldiers fighting side by side, the  tail-twisters in the United States  can make but little headway in  creating an anti-British sentiment.  Admiral Seymour's report, that for  dash and go none of the European  troops equalled those of the United  States, will not be without its ef-.  feet upon the American people, and  his inference that they were the  only troops that cordially co-operated with the British, discredits the  impression of bad feeling which the  -J 1_LX\- U-JWIU i-lCVIO   -CtUWL-Ljjv ��� . ._,   Sunday's   Colonist  small   advertisement  !;  ���    ���  - .  TRY   THE  t          _  Hudson's  That the division of the electors  in the approaching federal election  will have a marked effect upon the  ���    present   provincial government is  the opinion of many.    There is no  longer any man in provincial politics who can boast of the personal  following which was enjoyed   by  the late John Robson or the late  Theodore Davie.   The present government   depends   not   iipon   one  member of the cabinet, hut upon  three or four of them.   It is a combination of the Turner, party, the  Mainland  Conservative party, the  Cotton party and the Labor party,  and represents nothing more than a  truce-for the present session.    The  very uncertainty as to what will  succeed it makes the position of the  present   ministers    insecure,    and  strengthens fche position of the ad-  contains a  which may  mean a great deal to the people of  Vancouver Island. It is signed by  the Wellington Colliery Company  and is to the effect that five hundred  white miners and mine laborers are  wanted at the Wellington, Extension and Comox mines. These  mines are all controlled by premier  Dunsmuir and it looks as if one of  the greatest election promises will  be kept.  Mr, Houston has received an assurance from the finance minister,  that the amounts owing to the merchants and business men of Nelson  by the provincial government, in  connection with the recent smallpox scare, will be paid out of the  -grant"of"$6000"fdf-the expensesTof  the provincial board of health.  The advertisements of the Dominion department of public works,  calling for tenders for the construction of public buildings at Nelson  will be welcome reading. It took a  long time to move the federal authorities but they are moving.  only up to the first of April, what  they might owe for groceries, or  board, is deducted up to August.  This method always leaves the men  with nothing coming to them.  Then the men claim that the ore  from which the matte is made, and  which is shipped and sold in New  York, is bought on credit from the  Marble Bay and Mount Sicker mines.  The steamer Cifcy of Nanaimo was  not paid for transportation, and  some hotel keepers in the district  have the Van Anda company's  check for over a thousand dollars.  News is also brought down that  proprietor Hurd of the Marble Bay  hotel, will retire in September.  Kootenays Big Lead Mine.  Moyie Leader.

VAN    ANDA    MINE    TROUBLES.  The Province.  Steamer Comox came in last night  from    Port   Neville,    Shoal   Bay.  News of a somewhat startling nature was brought down by a passenger.   It is no more nor less than  that the Van Anda mine may close  down.    The miners working for the  company have not been  paid for  some time, it is asserted, aud when  they do get something in the shape  of wages, get it in checks, which  the0 banks   refuse  to   cash.     The  Province's informant is to consult a  lawyer in the matter, and states  that the men say they are tired of  working for   their board,  though  they will not repeat their strike, of  two years ago, but will simply quit.  They are advised that they can get  three months wages ahead even of  the debenture holders, and think it  is of no use losing any more of their  time���particularly as   the   winter  season is approaching.   The system  of management, according to the  men, is to give them all the worst  of it.   They are never paid until  their  Lady   operator���graduate electrician.

It now  appears that his decision to form a  new camp for them at Waterval, on  the Pieterburg railway, added to  the fact that pre-occupatiou by affairs of state and the general advance of the enemy's forces, then  beginning, so engrossed his attention as to preclude him from continuing his visits to the race course,  alone averted what would have  been the most sensational development of the war���to wit, the capture of the president and of the  fort commanding the Pretoria magazines by almost 2000 prisoners.  What the upshot of the contemplated coup d'etat would have been  is not easy to conjecture, for the  conspirators had no idea that the  war would bo prolonged beyond a  few weeks. It was in December.  Buller was on his way to the relief  of Ladysmith, Methuen had started  to raise the siege of Mafeking, and  Gatacre was advancing to invade  the Free State from the south. It  was argued that in a few weeks the  Imperial army would be investing  the Transvaal capital.  The daring plot originated among  the non-commissioned officers, by  Avhom it has now been disclosed,  and the details have been made  public in the South African news-  - Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.(  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  papers. It was carefully devised,  and there seems to be little doubt  that it could have been successfully  carried out. The broad lines of the  scheme were as follows:  The president occasionally visited  the race course in his state carriage  ascorted by half a dozen Zarps.  -N"oticeof~his"comiri"g_was generally'  received by the guards, and became  known to the prisoners, who hung  around to see him. The next time  the carriage entered the gates a  couple hundred men were to be seen  loitering about the avenues adjacent to the entrance. Others were  to form small groups near the 50  sentries on duty around the course.  Parties of a dozen men, each commanded \_y a non-commissioned  oflieer, were to take, care of the  tents in which the guards off duty  wero reading, sleeping or smoking.  Every man was to have some duty  assigned to him, and to attend  strictly to his particular busines.  It had been noticed that whenever the president put in an appearance itdistracted the attention of the  guards, and that some of the detachment in charge ot a Maxim  which overlooked the race course  opposite the gate and about 30  yards from it sauntered down  to see what was going on.  At a given signal, as the carriage  entered the gates, it was to be sur-  roiinded and the escort seized.  Simultaneously a dash was to be  made for the Maxim, the guards on  and off duty���of which there were  about 200���were to be overpowered  and disarmed, and telephone connection with Pretoria was to be  broken. It was argued that fear of  hitting the president would prevent  indiscriminate shooting by Boers  who appeared on the scene.  All this would have been the  work of a moment, and within five  minutes the force would have been  dashing for the fort opposite the  race course, and less than a mile  away.   The movement   was to be  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.  Capital Authorized  Capital Paid up  Rest  $2,500,000  $2,458,603  $1,700,000  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager.  E.

Auy resistance by the few men in  the_fort_"could~easily���have been  overcome, and once inside, the 2000  men would have been masters of  the situation. The prisoners had  learned that many thousands of reserve rifles and a large quantity of  ammunition were in the magazine  directly below the defences of the  fort," and that the storehouses of the  fort were filled with provisions.  With the president a hostage inside, it was agreed that the Boers  would be afraid to shell or storm it,  and iu any case the men were resolved to hold to it to the last.  Pretoria would have been dominated by the guns of the fort. The  authorities were to be informed  that so long as the garrison were  unmolested they would refrain from  any overt act of hostility against  the capital. It was intended, however, to co-operate with the British  J. E. ANNABLE  GENERAL BROKER  investing army if on its arrival the  Transvaal executive carried out its  resolution to defend Pretoria. A  strict injunction had been laid down  that no personal affront should be  offered president Kruger, and that  he should be provided with every  comfort and privilege that was not  calculated to endanger the enterprise.
