ISTELSOK:  WEDNESDAY MORNING AUGUST 29 J 900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  ARE IN A WAITING ATTITUDE  ���v ���        Regarding Chinese Situation.  AVashington, August 28.���After  the cabinet meeting today, it was  announced   that   the   government  was in a waiting attitude regarding  the Chinese situation.   The lack of  advices from Pekin and the failure  of the powers to show their hands  as to their future  policy, make  it  necessary for this government to  await developments.    The administration considers it of the greatest  importance that in ^he negotiations  for   a   settlement   of ihe   Chinese  difficulty all the powers  should act  in�� unison aud   harmoniously, and  its efforts are being directed to that  end.    The   powers,   however,   are  slow to declare themselves.  Several replies have been received  to the instructions sent to our ambassadors and ministers last week,  asking them to sound the governments to which they are accredited  on two propositions: First, willingness of the governments to accept tho sufficiency of Li Hung  Chang's credentials to treat with  _ the powers for a settlement, aud  second, toasceitain if possible whac  the future policy of each power is  to be. Regarding the latter inquiry,  the replys thus far have developed  nothing. The powers appear to be  watching eacli other without  definite or fixed purpose as yet of  their own.  With regard to the iirst inquiry,  Great Britain and Russia , are  agreed that carl Li's credentials are  sufficient. Germany however, takes  a firm stand agaiust the sufficiency  .of his credentials, and is the only  power as yet which has returned a  flat-footed dissent. The attitude  of the United States is that his credentials appear authentic. They  were promulgated by what appeared to be a genuine imperial  edict duly transmitted through the  accredited Chinese minister,' Mr.  : Wu, and the United States is will-  < ing to' accept them at their face  value at least for the present.  The administration, from the advices it has received, does not credit  the rumor that Russia, Japan aud  Germany, intend to declare war  -���-' igiinst China, aud it is willing to  accept all disclaimers of ulterior  purpose on the part of the poweis.  Just what would be done in case  some of the powers began war for  the purpose of territorial aggrandisement is not known, and the administration is not disposed to cross  the bridge until it reaches it, but a  member of the cabinet stated today  that if any of the European powers  entered upon such a program it  probably would be reminded by the  United States that it had agreed to  the "open door" policy by which all  the powers are to be placed upon an  equal footing, and that if they  were acquired under the agreement  we would be entitled to the same  privileges in the matter of trade,  etc., as the conqueror.  The president and tho cabinet  are as much in the dark regarding  =the-date=the=dispatches=of=minister=  Conger and geueral Chaffee left  Pekiu as is the general public. They  can find no explanation of the fact  that they have come through without Pekin dates, except that they  evidently were sent by courier to  Taku, and that cablegrams are relayed eighteen times after leaving  Taku. They may have been sent  from Taku without a Pekin date or  they may have lost the date. Internal evidence was found hi late  dispatches received from them that  tended to demonstrate that some  persons had been purposely delaying messages coming from Pekin  and Tien-Tsin to Washington. It  is also suspected that our messages  may.have beenin juriously tampered  with. ��  The cabinet came to the conclusion that if any Chinese persons  have interfered with the dispatches  the interference must have occurred  on the wires between Che-Foo and  Shang-Hai. As it was determined  to reopen direct communication by  means of a war vessel, either the  New^Orleans or the Princeton, now  at Shang-Hai, will be sent at once  to Che-Foo, ^where the military  system begins, free from Chinese  interference. The^administration  has nothing tending toxconfirm the  alarmist rumors regarding the situation at Pekin. Admiral Remey  reports nothing disquieting, and it  is assumed that if there was any  prospect of the allies being attacked  o,nd hemmed.in, he would be in a  position to hear of it and would  promptly report it to Washington.  Westerners Play Well.  Montreal, August 28.���The New  Westminster lacrosse team defeated  the Nationals-iere yesterday by a  score of 0 p 3, They made a  record in lacosse circles, for after  finding ou/. the' style of their  opponents'/play the Westerners  scored thr<e goals in fifty. seconds.  The application of the New Westminister lacrosse Association for  membors/ip iu the Canadian  Araateu/Athletic Union has practically Teen accepted, as there is  now tphand a majority of votes in  their ftvor.   CHIAA'S POLITICAL FUTURE  /  /  Discussed In Germany.  Berlin, August 28.���The Liberal  pc'pers are sharply discussing what  tley describe as the "illegality of  the recent reorganization of the  .irmy incidental to the China expedition."  The National Zeitung points out  that next Thursday the ceremony  of bestowing flags and standards  upon twelve Asiatic battalions gives  the appearance of intended permanency to the organizations. It  also shows that since the passage  of the military law of 1874 all  changes in organization have been  made by legislation "which is the  fundamental principle of the imperial constitution." The paper refers to- the period of conflict in  Prussia in the sixties, in which the  same question was involved. The  Berliner Tagleblatts Freseig Zeitung also discusses the subject.  The former asserts that the consent  of the Reichstag is unconditionally  demanded by the imperial constitution for new military formations,  and it calls upon the imperial chancellor, prince von Hohenlohe to see  that nothing is done against the  constitution.  The Kruez Zeitung, discussing  the political future of China, comes  to the conclusion that a joint dominion of the powers will be installed, such as exists financially in  Turkey, Greece, and Egypt, but  more.far-reachiug. It says : "China  must pay a war indemnity to the  powers. This v will necessitate, a  loan guaranteed by them and this  justifies the powers in assuming  cbntrol'o'f Ithe financial administra:  tion of China. The powers must  relieve China of the corrupt mandarin regime. Owing to the recognized efficiency of Germany's administrative system, Germany  should have the leading role in  China's future administration."  Not Due to Boxers.  Paris, August 27.���Official dispatches from Shang-Hai explain  that the Hankow uprising was not  due to the Boxers, but was a plot  organized by the partisans of Kang  Yu We, the reformer, " combined  with the secret society known as  the Ko Lao Hui, an anti-foreign  organization, who proposed to the  southern viceroys a revolt againgt  the Pekin government. The leaders of the movement relied especially upon ChangjOhi_Tung,Lvicero;y_  at Hankow, for arms, gunpowder  and other agents of destruction.  A proclamation, written in English  and addressed to Europeans, was  seized. In it the revolutionists declared themselves much opposed to  the Manchu dynasty, but ready to  uphold the present emperor. They  expressed themselves as desirous  of founding a constitivtionargovern-  ment, of protecting foreigners, and  Christians,5and of supporting the  powers against anti-foreign fanatics."      "��� '    - '  Jumped to Her Death.  Rochester, August 28.���Brooding over- imaginary troubles, and  depressed in spirits, Mrs, Anna  Dunbar, aged 45, an inmate of the  Rochester State Hospital, jumped  from a second-storey window in the  laundry building at that place  yesterday afternoon, and died early  this morning at the hospital. She  has a brother in Canada.  Steamer Ashore.  Seattle, August 28.���The  steamer Tacoma, which went ashore  on Alki point in a dense fog, was  pulled off at high tide tonight by  the tug Richard Holyoke. To all  appearances she is uninjured. She  came on to this port under her own  steam. The vessel was aground  about ten hours.  Discovered a Cave.  \Desbarats, Ontario, August 28.  ���TheJLiongfellow party, with nine  Indian guides, have discovered a  cave containing old Indian hieroglyphics. The party are very much  interested and are prolonging their  stay until next week.  THE POWERS AT VARIANCE  Regarding Pekin.  a. ra.���  London, August 29.-4  That the inexplicable delay in forwarding telegrams from the Chinese  capital still continues, is illustrated  by the fact that the latest dispatch  from Pekin, the telegram from the  special correspondent of the Associated Press, describing the  search for Boxers in the Imperial  park is dated no later than August  2lst.  There is no confirmation from any  source of the report of. an advance  toward the north from Pekin. On  the contrary a movement southward to clear the country ��� and to  insure the free communication with  Taku is apparently in progress.  The powers, as late as August 21st,  were still unable to agree as to how  to deal with Pekin itself, the Japanese and Russians being at variance as -to whether the imperial  palace should be destroyed. Nor is  there any further news of alleged  detention of Li Hung Chang by the  admirals. Probabilities increase  that all the members of the imperial household have gotten safely to  the interior.  A Reuter dispatch, dated Pekin,  August 15th, and sent by post to  Shang-Hai, describes scenes of  appalling destitution and wanton  destruction in the legations. All  the houses of the foreigners were  riddled with bullets and shells, .or  else burned or blown up. An  ���attempt was made to mine the  legations. A shaft was sunk from  the top of the wall fifteen feet and  was continued as a tunnel with a  sharp slope in the directions of the  legations. Apparently the Chinese  did not have time to finish it. Le  Siecle's report of the defeat, suffered by the allies ..at Pekin is  every where discredited. The Chinese  legation in St. Petersburg has received news that peace negotiations  have already begun.  The Pekin correspondent of ^the  Daily News, in a dispatch dated  August 27th, asserts that there are  thousands of instances going to  show that the Boxers ,were ap_;  proved by the imperial officers in  their indescribable ferocity.  Tien-Tsin,August 25.���viaTaku,  August. 27.���The commissary department is preparing to establish  an extensive winter base at Ting  Ku.  Lieutenant Waldron of the Ninth  United States Infantry, received a  serious sniping wound while patrolling at Hoshiru. The Russians,  Germans and Japanese are constantly pushing troops on Pekiu.  Officers who have arrived here  from Pekin report that. general  Chaffee, commanding the American  forces in China, is making all necessary preparations to maintain 15-,  000 men through the winter.  Fifteen of the Americans, includ-  ings the marines, wounded during  the* siege of the legations have ar-  =rived=here=by=*boat=_rom=__kin-=  Meyer (possibly captain Meyer of  the United States marine corps) is  suffering" from typhoid fever and  cannot be moved. A large batch  of refugees are due here tomorrow.  The American signal corps, co-operating with those of the British, has  completed the telegraph line from  Pekin to Taku.  Pekin, August 21.���Via Taku,  August 27.���Three Russian, two  Japanese, one British and one  American battalion searched the  Imperial park south of the city and  about five miles out for Boxers.  No armed force was found, but only  a single Chinese scout, who was  killed. The Japanese are in possession of the imperial summer palace  today. The winter palace here is  still closely guarded. The Russians  wish to destroy it, but the Japanese  wish to save it. A southward  movement began today, and it will  continue, but several detachments  will remain to protect converts.  Will Establish Cables.  Washington, August 28���Several  communications came to Washington from the United States officials  in China today, but being undated,  in most cases, the government was  by no means satisfied with the state  of the communications, and the  cabinet -meeting gave the largest  part of its attention to the problem  of rectifying the state of affairs.  Evidences of interference with the  messages have accumulated to a  point where the government has  determined to take steps to establish cables of its own, even if it is  necessary to employ the rather expensive devices of a man of war  plying    between   Shang-Hai   and  Che-Foo for this >purpose. Meanwhile word comes that rapid progress is being made with the shore  cable which is to connect these  points, and it is believed that within  a week these means of communication will be open.  Soldiers Welcomed.  Toronto, August 28.���Eighteen  of the invalided soldiers arrived in  Toronto this afternoon. Of the  number eight were Toronto men,  the rest being from the neighborhood. " There was no public reception, but the friends of the different  men had' gathered in large force  and' gavei the boys a hearty welcome. They were then taken charge  of by friends and ;d riven about the  city for a while; ._ The enthusiasm  increased during *.,:the evening and  there was a "series of demonstrations ,', in ;different parts  of the city, some " of which  assumed giant proportions. Out on  Sorauren avenue, in the west end,  where one of ' the lads lived, "a  procession of- several thousand  people organized, and with torch  lights paraded .that part of  the city. Dispatches from various points east where the representatives of the returning detachments lived show they had received  the warmest greetings on reaching  home. At London at least 8000  people greeted the representatives  who belonged to that city.  Business in Porto Rico.  Washington, August'28.���James  A. Sample, chief of the division of  issue of the treasury "department,  who was one of the special agents  sent to Porto Rico by the secretary  to make the exchange of the United  States money for -Porto Rican silver coin, has returned to the city  and reports that, of the original  sum of $6,000,000 in Porto Rican  silver, supposed to have been in  circulation on the islaud," all but  $700,000 has* been exchanged, and  arrangements have been * perfected  by whicli facilities for the exchange  will continue for an indefinite  period. ��� In an interview today, Mr.  Sample said that business throughout the island was fairly prosperous  and good and that '.prospects were  good for-the -future. --Some of - the  cane crop is said to be very good  and the coffee crop above the  average.  Labor Men Arrive.  Montreal,'. August 28.���The C.  P. R. trainmen and conductors who  are demanding an increase in their  wages are expecting the arrival in  the city today of grand master  Morrissey, of the Brotherhood of  Trainmen and grand master Clarke  of the Brotherhood of, Conductors.  On the arrval of these gentlemen  the conference with general manager McNicholl of the C. P. R. will  be resumed looking towards a settlement of the controversy. A. Shaw  of Winnipeg, chairman of the Order  of Conductors reached the city on  Saturday evening.  ������\~^~~Firebugs_at Work.:  Brockville, August 28.���Although the alleged firebugs are  under arrest the number of incendiary fires are keeping up and even  increasing. A deliberate attempt  was made Saturday night to fire  the store of Messrs. Wood & Buchanan, but fortunately it was detected before the flames gained  headway.     .  Won the Watch.  Belleville, Ontario, August 28.  ���When the Belleville contingent  went to Africa Mrs. Fred Lingham  presented them with a flag, and  promised the man who raised it on  Pretoria jail a gold watch. Corporal G. D. Hume, "D" Company,  late a lieutenant of the Fifteenth  regiment, wins the watch.  Died in Ten Minutes.  Winnipeg, August 28.���At Fleming, Assiniboia, yesterday, when  William Charles Yeoman, aged 3(5,  of Toronto, was getting ready to  drive to Elkhorn, he was taken  suddenly ill and died in ten minutes. An inquest was held and the  coroner gave the cause of death as  heart failure. The body goes to  Toronto for interment.  Took Paris Green.  Toronto, August 28.���Mary  Compton, aged 25, employed at  Roach's Point during the summer  as a domestic servant, came to the  city for treatment on Saturday accompanied by Dr. R. A. Pyne. She  died in the ambulance on the way  from the union station to the hospital. The girl admitted having  taken paris green, but refused to  say what caused her to do it.  ROW ENDED THE SITTING  Of the Legislature.  Victoria, August 28���[Special to  The Tribune.]���A row over the Supreme Court Act ended the .sitting  of   tho   legislature   this   morning  earlier than anticipated and prevented the completion of business.  AVhen the bill was in its third reading Houston of Nelson moved that  the   sittings  of the full  court at  Vancouver be discontinued, and all  sittings be at Victoria.   That angered the Vancouver members, and  though   the   amendment   carried,  Martin objected to the suspension  of the rules that would enable the  bill to be put through   the   final  stage at that sitting. Consequently  as the whole legislature was booked  for a holiday jaunt to see the coal  mines on the Island at the invitation   of    premier   Dunsmuir,   the  house adjourned until tomorrow at  ten in the morning.  0 Unless some unforseen agreement  is arrived at the opposition will not  allow the rest of the business to be  railroaded through, and it is possible   -prorogation    may    not   be  reached this week, although   the  government had built on winding  up Thursday.    v  Fought Chinese With Axes.  Victoria, August 28���An American who was at Blagovestchensk  writes of an attack by Chinese on  July 13th as a steamer was preparing to leave there for Harboroff  with the remaining 300' soldiers.  The Chinese opened fire from across  the river with cannon and rifles.  The principal street was crowded  with men, women and children, who  were out for a holiday. People  were panic stricken and rushed  madly to tfie rear of the city. The  Chinese firing grew thicker, and  citizens, old and young, burst  open arms and ammunition cases  and began arming. The .city had  been left almost bare of troops and  there was a poor garrison to defend  it.- Many, unable to obtain guns,  armed themselves with axes. Firing  continued .the whole night, but;  the Chinese, being afraid of the  Russians," did" hot cross the river.'  Had they done so they could easily  have taken the place.  A Persistent Bumor.  Paris, August 28.���A special dispatch to Le Siecle from St. Petersburg says: "It is persistently  rumored in St. Petersburg that the  Russian government has received  dispatches asserting that after a  fierce battle inside of-Pekin the  allies retreated, losing 1800 men,  mostly Russians. It is further said  that the Chinese occupy fortified  positions, from which they are bombarding the allies in a murderous  manner."  Seized With Cramps.  Toronto, August 28. ��� Samuel  Stein, a brave- young Jew, lost his  =Iif e-lasfrevenin g=at^_shb ridgeVBay"  trying to save the life of a drowning girl, named May Miller. A man  on the wharf threw out a fish pole,  caught it in the girl's hair, and  pulling softly aud gently brought  her in safely. Meanwhile Stein,  swimming to save her, was seized  with cramps and went down.  Gold From the North.  Seattle, August 28.���The steamship Ohio has arrived from Nome  with 338 passengers and treasure  estimated at $2,000,000. About one  third of the gold came from Nome,  the Klondike contributing the rest.  The steamer South Portland arrived  last night with $10,000 in gold from  Nome and 133 steerage passengers.  Natives Dying Like Flies.  London, August 28.���"The epidemic of cholera," says the Simla  correspondent of the Daily Mail,  ." is one of the worst outbreaks on  record. The natives are dying like  flies at the rate of 3000 a week.  The epidemic is undoubtedly due to  the pollution of the scanty water,  supply during the famine."  Transport Arrives From Nome.  Seattle, August 28.���The United  States army transport Lawton arrived this evening from Nome with  220 passengers, two-thirds of whom  are destitute miners returned at the  expense of the government. Rev.  S. Jackson, the interior department  representative iu northern waters,  came down on the Lawton, bringing with him twenty-five Laplanders employed by the United States  in its Alaskan reindeer experiment.  The Laplanders are bound for  Norway.   About eighty Laplanders  now engaged .in mining at Nome  declined to leave thecountry. Dr.  Jackson reports that la grippe,  pneumonia and measles have been  epidemic all summer among the  Eskimos, materially lessening their  number. The ravages extended  from the Aleutian islands to Point  Barrow. On the island of St.  Lawrence, out of a population of  300, 36 Eskimos died. Many Indian  children were found hovering about  the dead bodies.  PROPOSED WOOLLEN MILL  Interesting Statistics.  The   aldermanic committee   appointed to discuss the proposed establishment of a woollen industry  at   Nelson will meet shortly and  prepare   a proposition to   be for-,  warded to   Thomas   Kennedy for  submission to the syndicate which  he represents.   Mr. Kennedy leaves  today for the Coast and returns to  Toronto within a couple of weeks.  The location of the industry will be  determined   upon   within   a short  time after his arrival in the east,  the intention of the syndicate being to prosecute building operations  this fall.  The proposed industry is capitalized at $125,000, of which $60,000 is  available. Of this sum, the company figures on investing $8000 in  buildings and the balance in plant  and working capital. - The figures  on which the promoters base their  calculations for prosecuting a successful business in the west are  most interesting. The. estimated  expenses are based on the cost of  manufacture at Brantford, Ontario.  The wages paid there have been  doubled, and the .company's pay  roll will range from a superintendent at $0 per day to boys and  girls at $2 per day, the intermediate stages being fully up to the  western standard of wages. To offset this wool can be purchased here  at a saving of $50 per day on the  output" of-a two-sett factory and  Crow's-Nest coal.costs 33^ per cent,  less than the. fuel, used in eastern  mills.. The result of the calculation  is that woollen-goods can be turned  out here, at an equal) if not slightly *  lower, cost.  A two sett mill such as the  syndicate proposes to. commence  business with will use 1000 pounds  of wool per day and turn but about  700 pounds of manufactured goods.  The output will include blankets,  tweeds and ' underwear, but the  company believes that a mill of this  capacity could be kept running on  blankets alone for the British  Columbia market. The blanket  used here weighs from 7 to 8  pounds so that the product in  manufactured goods can be readily  estimated.  The company asks for a free site  where good drainage and abundant  water will be available. These conditions can readily be' had in the  lmTne_iate=vicinity=6f"Nelson and"  as the syndicate is already prejudiced in favor of this city, the  prospect of adding an important  industry to Nelson's list of growing  commercial enter prises seems bright.  War Clouds Gathering.  ,  London, August 28.���Referring  to the'tension between Roumania  and Bulgaria, recently accentuated  by the unsatisfactory character of  the reply of the Sofia government  to the Roumanian demand for suppression of tlio Macedonian revolutionary committee, wliich has its  headquarters at the Bulgarian  capita], the Bucharest correspondent of the Daily Mail wires  yesterday, saying: "The outlook  becomes more and more serious.  The opinion of the general public is  that Bulgaria must be taught a  lesson by arms if necessary. Many  public meetings were held yesterday, throughout Roumania. All  were characterized by a very warlike tone." The expulsion of Bulgarians from Roumania- continues.  In the Philippines.  Manila, August 28.���The official  reports show the past fortnight's  scouting to have had insignificant  results. The United States transport  California, which sailed from San  Francisco on July 27th for Manila,  is now overdue. The United States  Philippine commission, in order to  explain the new conditions, their  power and their attitude toward  the Filipinos, resulting from their  assumption of legislation are publishing a portion of McKinley's instructions. The families of commissioners Taft and Wright have  arrived here.  MINER ARRIVED FROM NOME  Tells of the Country.  George  McGowan, .who arrived  recently from Cape Nome, via San  Francisco, is registered at the Silver  King hotel.   Interviewed by a Tribune representative last night, he  said he left San Francisco on Aptil,  28th, arriving at Nome one month*-  later.   During the voyage up, the'"  vessel on which he had taken passage (the Thrasher) was blocked by *  miles" of   ice   between Dutch  j">%  100  Dutch  --,;��_���  ;r-f��  J?2  Harbor and Cape Nome.  Harbor is a coaling point on the  Aleutian islands.   Just previous to  the Thrasher's arrival at Nome a  steamer flying tne British flag and  hailing from Victoria had succeeded in forcing a passage through the  ice and landing a valuable cargo of  provisions, for which they received -  the highest prices.     The Victoria^/  steamer was pursued by the United -,.  States   revenue   cutter   Bear, but-�����!;��&;  managed to make t good her escape ,T '*"  after landing her freight and pas- -' -s$t\  sengers. "I don't give a rap for the '*"'*>_  Bear,'-' said the Victoria captain to^ ^  the captain of the Thrasher when -"��  that vessel arrived, "we can outrun -^  her every time."    ,   ,   ' ���   .     > ^  ��� "I never saw a "country* "'said Mr. ,-'  McGowan, "where so much misery, **��'  destitution   and   sickness _ exists."   ^  Many' of the goldseekers' are old    i  men, some of' them crippled, who^'^  haye battled with fortune in many t >^l  parts of the world all their lives, n.f_>  and with little thought of the fu--   ���??  ture, turned their available  assets ^}"m  into cash and struck off for theT-^ll  new Eldorado. s     ^^a  There is very little .gold coming  from   Nome,   says   Mr. McGowan;"  Though   large amounts are being  shipped'from the north, most of it  comes from Klondike.

The claims are now  tied up.  The greater number, of the inhabitants of Nome are living in  tents, what buildings there are  being shells of the most flimsy  character. Of the latter there are  probably about thirty. In the early  part of the summer there jvas con-  siderable lawlessness in Tthe camp.  Since the arrival of the United  States troops the town has been  under military law.  In speaking of the administration  of justice in the camp, Mr. McGowan says that, so far as he can  see, the man who has the money to  put up aud is willing to .put it up  gets pretty nearly what he wants.  He had heard, however, that a civil  judge had left Seattle for Nome  when he arrived in San Francisco.  Strung along the beach for a distance of ten miles are tons upon  tons of unused mining machinery,  left to the mercy of .the elements,  because the owners could see nothing worth while mining in the  country.  On the 8th of July last it was  estimated that there were over 26,-  000- people in the camp, many of  them without means of subsistence.  Seventeen cases of smallpox were  in the hospital at that time, not to  speak of other cases in the camp.  Speaking of the transportation  companies inducing people to try  their fortune in new fields of the  companies' exploiting, Mr.. McGowan  says that in this respect the Arctic  Whaling Company are among the  worst offenders. They are continually luring goldseekers from Nome  to new fields, where, as a general  rule, there is no gold to be found.  Mr. McGowan says that before he.  left he counted seventy-five graves  on the beach. He says he has seen,*  all he wants of a country where almost eA-ery one is broke, even the  saloonkeepers, and where there is  but little gold, notwithstanding the  fabulous reports so industriously  circulated. Ho expects to remain  in Kootenay for the winter.  ^_^��sV'ti*3ia5 V  ISS-  *���'  m  w  I-H-  i  I  ������"-  1  I  i  i-  THE __BUN_:  NELSON B.

It. now has been  proven   that   the recent race  re-  has  Van-  clearly  be-  tween   Hackett  and  Johnston of  Vancouver was fixed, and that the  two oarsmen entered into a conspiracy   to   do   up   the   sporting  * element.     The   only   satisfactory  feature of the ^disgraceful business  is that the principals made very  little out of it, owing to the fact  that they quarreled, among themselves   before   the   swag  was all  landed. ���        ���     -  ' ���  The underground railway system  in London is alseady an assured  success. The new underground  road was opened less than one  month ago, and during three days  260,000   passengers  used  it.   The 1  papers say-it .has emptied the omnibuses. Pour years have been  spent in building the railway,  which runs from the Bank of England, in the centre of the city  proper, to Shepherd's Bush, a distance of six miles, and between  these points has eleven stations or  thirteen in all. It was built at a  cost of $17,032,850, and to make a  profit the road must carry 40,000,-  000 passengers in a year at the fare  of four cunts.  The provincial legislature did  not complete its business yesterday  as was predicted. The bill to amend  the Supreme Court Act developed  a stormy debate, which terminated  in an adjournment.of the house till  Thursday. It is now a question  whether .the present week will witness the close of the session.  It is not often that the wage-  earners in a strike are unwilling to  submit their demands to arbitration, but such appears to be the  case with the striking machinists  and boiler makers in the employ of  the Canadian Pacific railway. Those  who are in a position to judge now  say that a general tie-up of- the  road is threatened, as the conductors and trainmen may ask for a  settlement of tlieir grievances.  Soldiers Did Good Work.  Quebec, August 28.���Fire did  $500 worth of damage at the corner  of St. Ursula and St. Johns stseet  last;night. The place was used upstairs as a boarding - house and  downstairs as a millinery establishment by Miss M. Brownrigg & Company, and by the Slade Electric  Supply Company. A no'ticeable  feature of the fire was the assistance rendered the brigade by some  of the returned soldiers, who were  on hand and did good work.  Ito's Influence Growing.  _Yokohama, August 11.���Via San_  "Francisco, August 28.���The probability of marquis Ito's early accession to power, with a strong party  organization behind him, is daily  increasing. It is felt on all hands  that in the coming readjustment of  Chinese affairs, he is the one man  to cope with the situation, his influence being almost as great in  China as in his own country. On  the retirement of the present premier, marquis Yamagata, it is rumored that the latter will be raised  to the rank of prince. Japan is  rejoicing over the laurels her troops  are winning in Cliina. Their feat  of blowing up* the gates of Tien-  Tsin was one of the most daring on  record. The wires which were to  ignite the gun cotton refusing to  work, one of the soldiers deliberately went up to the gates, and applying a match, was blown into  atoms as the gates came down. A  second soldier then climbed over  the inner wall and in the dun light  of the morning opened the city to  his comrades, who swarmed in  while the astonished Chinese threw  down their arms and fled. Japan  is quietly sending more troops to  China. Picked men are being dispatched to supply the constant  losses. The large fleet of transports  is still in constant service bearing  men and supplies.  Chinese Nabobs in Manila.  In the better residence quarter  of Manila there are several stately  mansions,   built   and occupied by  Chinamen, that are the equal of tho  finest that Europeans inhabit.   One  of these in ^particular is used for  the barracks of two companies of  the Thirty-sixth infantry, says the  New   York Post.    A   lawn, filled  with   palms,  surrounding a large  fountain, lies in front of the house,  while beyond the narrow passage  leading through the inner court a  spacious back garden replete with  flower beds and gravel "walks slopes  down to the swiftly-running Pasig.  The paving of the court is of marble blocks, and the stairs leading up  to the living-rooms are of the same  material.   Upstairs, the sides of the  main hall are lined   with French  plate mirrors that extend from the  inlaid hardwood floor to the ceiling.  The owner, who leased the house to  the government, left afine grand  piano for the delectation of the soldiers when off duty.     Many elaborately carved pieces of furniture  were found stored, in one of the  rooms, besides tapestries and paintings that would delight the  eye of  a connoisseur.  Tale of a Monkey.  Many years ago the soldiers of an  English regiment stationed near  the Cape of Good Hope were very  much annoyed by baboons, which  are large monkeys. These baboons  would come marching into the camp  and carry away anything on which  they could lay tlieir hands. One  day a poor soldier's wife had washed  a blanket and hung it out to dry;  but she had hardly got indoors  again when a party of baboons appeared, seized the blanket and ran  off with it to the hills. The soldiers  went after them ; but it was useless, and next morning a whole  party of baboons paraded the hills  in front of the camp, each wearing  as a shawl apiece of their prize.  Arbitration Begun.  The arbitration between the  boards of London, England, and  the Sturgeon Falls Paper Company,  arising over the sale of a concession  to the former by Mr. Bremner began this morning. The arbitrator  is Mr. Fitzpatrick and the lawyers  in the case are Messrs. S. H. Blake,  Thomas H. Duffy and Charles Russell of England. R. D. McGibbon,  Q..���_., acting in behalf of the Manufacturers' Paper Company of New  York, applied for a right to attend  the sittings,.but this was refused at  the instance of the lawyers, interested in the case.

"It is a fortunate thing for man.  md the rest of the animal king-  |dbm," said the naturalist, " that no  large wild animal has a mouth eou-  jstructed with the devouring apparatus built on the plan of the insigni-  icaut looking  snail's mouth,   for-  'fchat animal could out-devour   anything that lives.   The snail itself is  (such   an   entirely unpleasant   and  (loathsome'creature to handle,  that  Ifew amateur   naturalists   care   to  jbother with it, but by neglecting  Jthe snail they miss studying one of  phe most interesting objects that  somes-under their observation.  Anyone who has noticed a snail  feeding on a loaf must have  won-  fclered how such a soft, flabby, slimy  (xnimal can make such a sharp and  ulean-cut incision in the leaf, leav-  |ngan edge as smooth and straightas  of it had been cut with a knife.   This  Is due to the peculiar and formid-  lible mouth he has.   The snail eats  [with his tongue and the roof of his  louth..   The. tongue   is a ribbon  i*_ich the snail keeps in a cell in  Ihis mouth.   This tongue is in reality a baudsaw, with the teeth on  fche surface instead of on the edge.  Che teeth are so small that as many  bis 30,000 o_ them have been found  foil   one snail's "tongue.   They are  ���exceedingly sharp, and a few of  Tjfchern are used at a time, but a few  (of   them,   comparatively, for the  snail will probably have   4000 or  5000 of them in use at once.   He  does this by means of his  coiled  tongue.   He can uncoil as much of  this as he chooses, and the uncoiled  part _��� .brings into service.   The  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLOMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Da-wson City, N. W. T.  roof of his mouth is as hard as  bone. He grasps the leaf. between  his tongue and that hard substance,  and, rasping away with his tongue  saws through the toughest leaf  with ease, ahvays leaving the edge  smooth and straight.  " By use,_the_teeth���wear���off���or-  beeome dulled. When the snail  finds that his tool is becoming  blunted, he uncoils another section,  and works that out until he has  come to the end of the coil.' Then  he coils the tongue up again, and is  ready to start in new, for while he  has been using the latter portions  df the ribbon*theteethhave grown  in again inthe first portions���the  saw has been filed and reset, so to  speak���aiid while he is' using theni  the teeth in the back part of the  coil are renewed. So, I think I am  rightin saying that if any large  beast of prey was fitted up with  such a devouring apparatus as the  snail has it would go hard with the  rest of the animal kingdom."  Sell Butter toy the Yard.  Probably Cambridge, England, is  the only place iii the world where  one would likely find butter sold  by lineal measure, but here, in accordance, with the old custom it is  sold by the yard. For generations  it has been the practice of Cambridgeshire dairy folk to roll their  butter into lengths, each length  measuring a yard and weighing a  pound. Deftly wrapped in strips  of clean white cloth, the cylindrical  rolls are packed in long and narrow  baskets made for the purpose, and  thus conveyed to market. The butter women that in white linen  aprons and sleeves preside  over the stalls in the mart  have no need of weights or scales  for dispensing their wares. Constant  practice and an experienced eye  enable them with a stroke of the  knife "to divide a yard of butter  into halves or quarters with almost  mathematical exactness.

CITY LOCAL NEWS  Charles Cummings, who was  taken ill with appendicitis while  attending the recent meeting of the  associated boards of trade as a representative; of the Grand Forks  board, returned home yesterday,  lie is quite recovered.  J. Lonsdale Doupe, of the C. P. R.  land department at Winnipeg, was  in the city yesterday en route to  the Slocan to survey company  lands along the river. Mr Doupe  lias been mentioned as a successor  to H. T. Wilgress in the local land  agency.  R. Bowman of Vancouver, C. P.  R. storekeeper for the Pacific division, was in the city yesterday in  specting   the   local    storekeeper's  office.  A few members of the fire brigade are endeavoring to raise a  team to compete in the hose reel  races at Rossland. In view of the  shabby treatment accorded Nelson  teams at Rossland heretofore most  of the firemen prefer remaining at  home.  Last evening city clerk Strachan  received 'a telegram from mayor  Manley of Grand Forks, inviting  the mayor and members of tho city  council to attend a banquet to be  given in Grand Forks on Thursday  evening in honor of the blowing in  of the Miner-Graves smelter at  Grand Forks.  Two games have been played in  the quoiters tournament. Wallace  and Nunn defeated O'Shea and Irving 21 to 13, and McMorris and  Weir defeated Clements and Whalley. The games will be continued  nightly until the series is concluded.  The city officials will probably  have water laid to the Union cemetery in the near future: At present there is practically no supply  available and the caretaker, who  resides on the grounds is greatly inconvenienced. In addition the lack  of water precludes any attempt at  decoration in the way of grass plots  or flowers. The difficulty of supplying city water lies in the altitude of the cemetery.  James C. Clarke, son of Mrs. E. C.  Clarke of the Queen's hotel, returned  yesterday to Loyola college, Montreal, for the fall session.  The city council holds an adjourned meeting tomorrow night to  go into the bylaws now being put  through. The understanding is  that all other business is to be held  over until the next regular session.  Monday will be Labor day, a  Dominion and provincial statutory  holiday. All the government offices and the banks will be closed,  but so far as can be learned local  business houses will not observe the  holiday. The city council will not  meet, as any business transacted on  a statutory holiday-would be illegal.  A garnishee of $200 was recently  served in New Denver. The net  results, amounting to five cents,  were forwarded by the court officials to registrar Simpkins here by  check. When the cheek was presented for payment an exchange of  15 cents was demanded, whereupon  Mr. Simpkins decided to retain the  check and has posted it in his office  at the court house as a curiosity.  Al Gray of Gray's Landing was  in the city yesterday securing signatures to a petition urging the  government to extend the Molly  Gibson wagon road. It is asserted  that the desired extension will be  of very great convenience to the  ranchers in the district. A large  number of signatures were secured.  The tug Denver is on the stocks  at the C. P. R. shipyards undergoing  repairs to her engines and receiving  a fresh coat of paint inside and  out. The craft' will look quite  smart and will, be utilized for towing the houseboat just completed  by the shipwrights.  Edwin C. Senkler, gold commissioner for the Yukon, is expected  in the city today en route from  Ottawa to the north.  John Hamilton, C. P. R. trainmaster, was examined yesterday  morning before E. T. H. Simpkins,  special examiner, in the case of  Fawcett vs. C. P. R., an action for  damages. John Elliott appeared  for plaintiffs and J. H. Bowes for  defendant.  The Trades and Labor Council  meets tomorrow night to appoint a  delegate���to-^attend-^-the^-aunual-  Trades and Labor Congress which  convenes at Ottawa on September  18th. Last year James Wilks  attended the Congress and invited  the delegates to hold the approaching session in the Kootenays. In  the   balloting   Ottawa   secured   a  narrow majority. It is probable  the Congress will be urged to visit  Nelson in 1901 and last year's  example encourages the local men  to look for an acceptance.  Local parties will play the Edith  J. Miller concert company at the  opera house shortly.  The first games in the preliminary  series of the tennis club's fall  tournament were played yesterday.  In the gentlemen's doubles Heath-  cote and E. T. Pollock defeated  Fraser and Crickmay and Martin  and H. W. F. Pollok defeated  Beaven and Dickson.  The Mining Records.  Yesterday's mining records were:  The Gold Hill claim on Barrett  creek by Peter McBride of Greenwood to Pat. .McMullen; the Eldorado, Chihuahua and Carmeucita  claims on the north fork* of Porcupine creek by John Brean, Frank  Grantham and Wilber Rugg of  Ymir to R. C. Pollett of Rossland.  A notice was'filed of the discontinuance of the suit of Mackenzie  vs. Dabney and the discharge of the  lis pendens therein;  Locations: The.
