In opening he referred to the smallpox caso treated during the winter  and   pointed   out the   difficulties  which had beeu met with in isolating  and    treating    the   patient.     The  isolation   and   detention   building  erected by the city wero not suitable or safe for  using in  treating  infectious diseases because of their  hasty    construction   and also    by  reason of the fact that with such  buildings proper  disinfection  was  .almost    impossible.       He    recommended   a    properly   constructed  building near the general hospital  which could be  thoroughly disinfected   when  necessary,   aud   also  that a nurse thoroughly  qualified  to handle infectious diseases should  be kept available, say by being employed at the city general hospital.  Such nurses were often difficult to  procure at the period  of au  outbreak, and tho city would do well  to prepare for such a contingency.  The cases of typhoid fever in the  city were   fewer   in  number, the  population considered, than in any  other year iu the history of the  city, which fact Dr. LaBau ascribed  :-to tbs-extension of the. city sewer-  - <*ige and water supply system.    Tn  - this connection he recommended  extension of sewers.on Observatory  street, the smelter road and the  district above the rink. The city  was also advised to carry their  water mains to the houses near the  rink and to various dairies which  now relied on surface water for  their supply.  The drainage of sewage into the  lake having caused complaints, the  medical health officer recommended  that the officers of all steamboats  calling in the port of Nelson be  notified as to the points where the  sewers emptied, and that signs be  .painted aud placed on the lake  shore indicating the location of the'  sewer aud the extreme point of  backwater.  V Sn regard to the inspection of  /Chinese houses., tho statement was  made-that they were, with few exceptions, clean. The small shacks  occupied by Italians were the  worst nuisance he encountered.  Almost without exception they  were filthy and a menace- to the  public health. He advised compelling owners of shacks to put in  sewerage, which would remedy tho  evil or cause the buildings to stand  empty.  A recommendation was * made  that the creek emptying into the  lake by G. K. Tackabiiry's residence-*,'.should be confined to a  straight ditch through the Hume  addition and to a covered ditch  from the point where it enters the  city to tho shore, and piped from  there to deep water.  _While_admitting-thafc4fc_was-not  strictly within the jurisdiction of  the health department, Dr. LaBau  recommended that lights be placed  at all points where street crossings  under way or other city work in  progress made walking dangerous.  On motion of aldermen Arthur  and Wilson the roport was referred  to a special committee comprising  L'"- the mover and seconder and alderman Hall.   Amateur Boxing Tournament.  San Francisco, August 20.���The  Olympic Club intends to bring off  one of the greatest amateur boxing  tournaments ever-held in America  some" time this winter. It has been  decided to bring together if possible the champion amateur boxers  of Australia, England and America  to decide the world's amateur  championships in the bantam,  feather weight, light weight, welter,  middle and heavy weight classes.  The amateur] athletic associations  of Australia and England will be  asked to send their best representatives to compete in fche tournament.  Firemen's Championship.  PARTS, August 20.���On account of  the representations against the  ruling, whereby the representatives  of the Kansas City fire department  were' disqualified in the inter-  . national fire department championship competition on the ground of  professionalism, the French exposition authorities decided to create a  epecial class for paid firemen. This  was not previously made clear, and  the representatives of Kansas City  were not aware of the fact  ihafc      the      competition      was  only intended for volunteer  firo departments. The Kansas City  firemen, in the preliminary exercises, completely outdistanced all  others in the power of their engines and the promptitude and  rapidity of their work. Kansas  city Avon the world's professional  championship cup. The officers received gold medals and the men  silver medals, and the money prize,  six hundred francs, was divided  among the officers and men. The  minister of war, general Andre,  presented tho prizes to captain  Hale. Portugal won the volunteer  championship.  More Russian Successes.  St. PETisitSHURfr, August 20.���  General Orion", chief of the staff to  the Russian forces iu China, reports  to the Russian war office the defeat  of 7000 Chinese after a hard fight,  the capture of Yuk Shi pass and  the occupation of Meduchei. An  imperial ukase has been issued prohibiting the exportation of arms or  ammunition to China.  MINE MANAGERS' PETITION  Legislation Affecting Miners.  Victoria, August 20���[Special to  The Tribune].���In the legislature  today a petition was read, signed  by* the Hall Mines Company, the  Centre Star Company, the British  America Corporation and a number  of other leading mining  companies  of Kootenay. It recited the fact  that by Dominion commissioner  Clute's report at least $30,000,000  was invested in West Kootenay  mines, aud the petitioners pointed  oufc that recent legislation had interfered with the successful working of the mines, and had been  responsible for disturbing the harmony between capital and labor, as  well as proving in general detrimental to the mining interests.  The petitioners asked that under  the circumstances a special investigation should be made by a committee to remove all grievances and  "place the mining laws in a satisfactory condition.-; --'���-. ������ ���-. -- -. f,  -  Joseph Martin, who said that of  course the Semlin government was  lesponsibleforthelawcomplainedof,  objected to receiving the petition  on the technical ground that it did  not set out any definite grievance.  However, Mr. Speaker ruled the  petition in order and it was received.  An amendment to the license law  today provides one thing of special  interest to miners���the necessity  for pack trains of six or more  animals to take out a $5 license  every six months, or under six  animals $2.50.  A bill to amend the Mineral Act  was brought in today. It provides  a $25 penalty for mining without a  license, provides for issuing crown  grants to the administrator'~ of a  deceased claim owner, raised the  crown grant fee from $10 to $25,  and, as advised by the committee,  makes provision for a man to ad-  -vertise-a-delinquent'co-owner-but  of his claim, instead of proceeding  through the court.  The railway committee today approved of the Grand Porks and  Kettle River railway bill, by which  ifc is intended to take the Republic  camp ores to Grand Porks for treatment.  It is expected that the session  will close next week.  Prominent Chinese Executed.  Siiano-Hai, August 20.���Official  Chinese advices from Pekin say that  Hsu Tung and Lien Yuan the anti-  foreign party and Li Shan, pro-  foreigner, have beeu decapitated  and that Yung Lu has been imprisoned by prince Ching. It is  added that the emperor and dowager empress are 60 miles west of  Pekin under the constraint of prince  Tuan. Li Hung Chang goes north  immediately. Hsu Tung was a  member of the imperial secretariat  and president of the civil board.  Li Shan was a member of the ministry of the imperial household.  The identity of Lien Yuan cannot  be traced.      '7  Good Bains Continue in India.  London, August 20.���The viceroy  of India telegraphs that the heavy  general rainfall has continued oyer  the most affected tracts. The. crops  promise Avell in the central provinces and Berara, sowing is active  elsewhere and the necessity for  free kitchens will shortly disappear.  Prices, however, are still very high  everywhere. Cholera is prevalent  throughout Hyderabad and in Bombay. There are 5,688,000 people  now receiving relief.  ROCKMEN OET THEIR WAGE  Last Night's Council.  The labor question came up again  at last night's council and the matter was smoothed out for tho present. The representative of the  men stated that mayor Houston  had promised to pay union wages  for rock work, and the council decided, in view of this, to grant the  request.  A letter was read from P. C.  Shackleton, secretary of the Nelson  Laborers' LTnion, enclosing amended  statements of the men's time employed on the Silica street sewer.  The city had made out wage checks  at the flat rate of $2.50 per day,  while the men advanced the claim  that they should receive the pay  granted to rock work laborers for  such days as they were employed  exclusively on rock work.  Aldermen Wilson and Arthur  moved that no change be made in  the scale of wages decided upon.  Alderman Hall remarked that he  had been told the men were guaranteed rock work pay. If this was  correct the city should certainly  keep faith.  Aldermen Wilson,-Morrison and  McKillop agreed that if a promise  was made it should be kept and the  wages advanced accordingly. It  was pointed out that if the Silica  street sewer had been boulder work  the classification would - be mixed  work, for which the council agreed  to make no -advance," but. that  straight rock work was entitled to  consideration.  The question was asked as to who  promised the men employed on  Silica street that they should receive the scale for rock work.  George Payne, a representative of  the union, replied that mayor  Houston said. the city, would pay  union wages ou all rock work.  " Aldermen McKillop and Arthur  then moved that the differences in  wages between the city and the  men be paid.   This was carried.   .  "Alderman Wilson withdrew-his  resolution, remarking that'if a distinct arrangement was, made in>  future between the foremen and  the men before any piece of- work  was started all friction would be  avoided.  Aldermen Arthur and Wilson  moved that the wages of men  wheeling rock from the rock pile to  the rock breaker be $2.50 per day.  This was carried.  The board of works submitted a  lengthy report, their recommendations being as follows:  That a 10-foofc sidewalk be laid  on the west side of Hall street from  Vernon to Front street, a 0-foot  sidewalk on the south side of Front  street from Hall to Ward street,  and a 10-foot sidewalk from Burns'  stable on Vernon street to La-  pointe's hotel.  The extension of the water main  to enable Mr. Symes' residence in  block 49, Addition A, to secure city  water. ___.  ,   A7sewer oh Latimer street from  Ward street to Stanley street.  A temporary crossing on Vernon  street opposite D. McKay's residence.  That permission be granted the  telephone company to use the city's  electric light poles for stringing  wires, the company being required  to sign an agreement to be pro-  pared by the city solicitor and paid  for by the company. An annual  rental of 25 cents per pole will be  collected by the city.  A crossing over the north side of  Vernon on Cedar street.  A six-foot sidewalk to grade on  the north side of Silica street from  Stanley to Josephine street. This  was amended to cover the block between Ward and Josephine streets  only.  That the alleyway at the rear of  the California Wine Company, aud  R. C. Riblet's warehouses be  opened up.  That the necessary hose for cesspool pumps be procured.  That a six-foot sidewalk be laid  on the north side of Carbonate  street to lot16 in block 26, a distance of about 50 feet.  A six-foot walk on Latimer street  from lot. 17 to Ward street in block  42 and a crossing on Ward street.  The  report  was adopted  as  a  whole.  A communication from the provincial secretary was read stating  that the city's letter regarding  school matters would be laid before  the executive council. Similar letters regarding the application of  the1 city" for grants of park and  foreshore rights were read.  W. F. Carey, superintendent of  the tramway company, wrote in re  ply to the letter of,J the council regarding guard wiros, stating that  guard wires were dangerous to life  aud property. The telephone company had neglected to install a metallic return system, although tbey  had decided" to do so, and were now  making the change. When the  telephone company made the  change all possible danger would  be removed. The letter was filed  and a copy is to be sent to the underwriters' association and to the  telephone company.'  Alfred Hyne wrote offering'to  re-sell fche city stables to the corporation at $50, au advance of $25  on the pi'ice he paid*a' few months  ago. The matter was referred to  the cifcy engineer ��� fco report on a  suitable site for nevv stables.  The discussion turned to labor  matters-again, the'city engineer  asking what wage _ should be paid  on the Victoria street sewer , which  he described, as mixed work. Alderman Arthur . moved that the  $2.50 rate be paid, but subsequently  he and' alderman - Morrison moved  that the standard scale of wages be  paid, and that the city engineer  classify the work arid state what  wages were to be paid.   Carried.  Alderman Arthur remarked that  while the cifcy was paying top  wages all but half a dozen of-the  men employed on the Victoria  street quarry were. utterly incapable and should be replaced by men  who knew how. to. handle rock. Ifc  was resolved to ask foi* tenders for  the construction of catch basins.  The city engineer was authorized  to make the necessary repairs to  the electric light plant.  Those present at the council included alderman Irvine in the chair,  and aldermen McKillop, Hall, Arthur, Morrison and Wilson!  RUSSIA'S CUNNINC SCHEME  Would Isolate England.  ' London, August 21���JiilianRalph,  in the Daily Mail-this .morning,  quotes 'from-' a diplomat of high,  standing whose name is. not given  who declares that Russia" is' vigorously endeavoring tq.seeure American support,'and to break the harmony existing between the United  States and Great Britain.  "England," says the diplomat in  question, "has no first-class power  except America which offers her  the slightest ground for" hoping for  a friendly-hearing of her case. The  bitter feeling of today will  generate war against her tomorrow. Russia's plan, whicli is encouraged by Austria, France and  Germany, is to strip Great Britain  of all support, to leave her naked,  before such a war begins."  Trouble in the Balkan States.  London, August 21.���Referring  to the tension between Roumania  and Bulgaria caused by the demand  of the Roumanian government i'or  the arrest of Sarafew, president of  the revolutionary committee of  Sofia, the Bulgarian capital, together^    witli     the  ALLIES NEED MORE TROOPS  suppression  of that organization, the Vienna  correspondent of the Daily Express  says: "The Bulgarian reply to  the note of Roumania has been received at Bucharest. It is couched  in aggressive terms. Bulgarian  troops are being continually moved  to the frontier. The Macedonian  revolutionary committee has collected 1000 volunteers under the  command of Bulgarian regular oflicers and will raid Roumanian territory. The Roumanian army corps  are mobilizing.  Sawmill on Fire.  At 2:30 this morning an alarm  of firo was turned iu from Brydges,  Fisher & Co.'s sawmill, and fche department responded promptly. Ifc  is understood that the blaze was  nofc serious, but owing to the late  hour no details could be obtained  before going to press.  Dewet Fighting Near Pretoria.  London, August 21.���Special dispatches from Pretoria announce  that general Dewet bivouacked 15  miles from the city, and that colonel  Mason was briskly engaging him  yesterday (Monday) morning.  Chinese Armies Surrounded.  Washington, August 20.���The  state department has received a  telegram through consul Fowler at  Che-Foo from consul Bagsdale at  Tien-Tsin saying the.Chinese troops  are surrounded by the allied armies  in the palace grounds at Pekin.  League Games.  Montreal 10, Worcester 7.  Montreal 6, Worcester 11.  Cleveland 7, Indianapolis 4.  Queen Victoria's Message.  London, August 21.���4 a.m.���  Owing probably to tho Pekin wires  being cut, little news of the conditions in the Chinese capital has  come through this morning. What  has been received indicates that the  allies are in need of reinforcements.  The commander of the Italian  second class cruiser Fieramosca  telegraphs from Taku, according to  the Rome correspondent of the  Daily Mail, that very urgent requests were coming from Pekin for  the immediate dispatch of further  troops, and thafc iu answer to these  400 Italian marines were sent off  post haste.  The Japanese minister in London  is said to have received a telegram  last evening announcing that, subsequent to the entry into Pekin, a  Japanese detachment went to the  imperial palace to afford whatever  protection was necessary. The  enemy was in strength, and fighting was still proceeding when the  message was sent to Tokio. The  main body of the Japanese was  then at Ting Men Gate, the Tartar  city, wifch headquarters at the  Japanese legation.  Reports of the presence of the  empress dowager are still contradictory, bufc general Yung Lu, on  the authority of the Shang-Hai  correspondent of the Standard, is  definitely announced to be a prisoner, by the orders of the empress  dowager, in the imperial palace.  "This, perhaps," says the correspondent, "is a good thing, as his  detention in the capital will enable  .him to negotiate with the allies'  commanders, which he would do as  prince Tuan's enemy."  The Chinese minister in London,  sir.Cheh Chen Lo Feng Luh, on  being asked as to the whereabouts  of the emperor and .empress dowa-.  ger, replied: "They have gone  westward to the old capical, Hsan  ,'Fu, and I think they are safe."  ��! Serious trouble is now threatened  in- the neighborhood of Canton.  The Americans at Swato, according  to the Daily Chronicle's Shang-Hai  correspondent, have applied for a  warship in consequence of serious  rioting, and the Hong Kong correspondent of the Daily Mail says that  a warship is on the way there now.  Queen Victoria has sent the following message to the commandant  of marines at Pekin : "1 thank God  that you and those under your  command have been rescued from  your perilous situation. With my  people, I. have waited with the  deepest anxiety for good news of  your safety, and the happy termination of your heroic and prolonged  defense. I grieve for the losses and  sufferings experienced by the besieged."  A Japanese warship has left  Yokohama for Shang-Hai, according to the Daily Mail, to land  -troops-and-to-protectJapanesesub^  jects. The Daily Mail also announces that Germany will laud a  detachment afc Shang-Hai. Further  Yokohama advices to the same  paper declare that Germany and  Russia are objects of distrust to the  Japanese press, which urges that  Japan, having borne the chief burden of the operations, must seo to  it that the future of China is not  determined merely by tho pleasure  of western powers.  "It is felt," says the correspondent, "thafc determined action on  tlio part of Great Britain, the  United States and Japan will avert  any danger arising from the ambition of continental Europe."  The semi-official Japanese organs  say that if occasion arises Japan  can send 50,000 troops on short  notice, and that if the powers are  inclined to play a selfish game special measures will be necessary.  Sir Cheh Len Ho Feng Luh, interviewed by the Daily Chronicle, is  represented as having said: "The  present disturbances are only a  temporary outbreak. We do not  despair of peace. Everything depends upon the conduct of the allies who are now in Pekin. All  subsequent questions rest on them  for solution. You may be quite  certain that it is not the antagonism to western ideas which is at  the root of the troubles, but rather  the difficulty of governing a great  and ancient people."  How They Tracked Maresca.  Nkw York, August 20.���Commissioner Fitchie said that late  Saturday evening a letter was received from consul Byingfcon of  Naples enclosing a copy of a letter  dated August 2nd in which an an  onymous writer stated that he  heard a conversation between Maresca and another Italian in a saloon,  during which Maresca, who was  said to have been intoxicated, had said that he  he was about to sail for the United  States to kill president McKiniey.  The consul added, according to  commissioner Fitchie, that he had  cabled the information to Washington and that he had mailed copies  of the letter to various European  ports and to ports of entry in the  United States, giving a description  of Maresca. Mr. Fitchie said in  addition that not only were the  secret service officers informed of  this matter, but the New York  police had had information of it  from the Paris police officials. But  commissioner Fitchie refused to  divulge the text of the consul's  letter or that of -the anonymous  communication.'  CAMP MANSFIELD WILL HUM  Slocan Ore Shipments.  Kaslo, August 20.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The fact that the  provincial government has appropriated $8000 to build the south  fork wagon road from the Black  Fox mine to the Excelsior company's  property has" been already instrumental in leading to the belief that  the district will hum' this fall.  Never in its history has the outlook  for the south fork of Kaslo river  been so encouraging and with the  return of Ernest Manefield.which  is expected this week there is reason  to believe things will still further  improve. The Warner. Miller party  of New York and Montreal has just  paid a visit, to the Smuggler group  which may be said to be within  camp Mansfield. This week the  Warner Miller syndicate will pay  the last payment on the Violet adjoining the Kilo group." - The  amount-is $5000, which" will make  $10,000 paid in all to F.-Dick, B.  Robertson and J." Tattersall, who  sold the claim. f    *!*!./  ' ' Ore shipments continue good. So  far this month 600-tons-have-been  received at this porfc over the Kaslo  and Slocan railway, 400 tons coming  from the big Whitewater and being  treated at the sampler here, nearly  100 tons being "also sent from the  Ruth to the sampler. The Rambler, the American Boy and the  Trade Dollar have also sent out ore  this way. The Payne during the  first half of the month shipped  most of its ore via Sandon, its output for the 29 days being 450 tons.  The Slocan Star makes steady export alsol The Payne will for the  rest of the month export its ore  through this port and there is no  reason why the total for the 31  days should not reach 1000 tons.

Rome, August 20.���The Larivista -  Maritima publishes an article' by  Signor Crispi in which the ex-  premier urges an increase of the  navy. He says that during the  existence, for 18 years, of the triple ,  alliance Italy has not had an  organized defense. From 1860, he  says further, to the present time  ��2,650,000 have been spent on the  navy, which, however, has descended from third place in 1890'  until now it is seventh among the  navy powers. Sicily, continues  the article, can not be defended  without a strong fleet, nor can  many Italian colonies be safe-  guarded-against-foreigne'rsT^Signor .  Crispi asserts thafc the economical  future of Italy demands that she  search for new fields in the extreme  orient, and he concludes by warmly  recommending that the government provide for the necessities of  the situation, for to relinquish a  fleet proportionate to the needs of  the country will be to abandon tho  solo hope of safety to which Italy  could trust her fortunes in tho day  of trial.

This re may be some truth in the  statement of some of the mine-  own ers" that the suggested* amendment to the Assessment Act will  unsettle mining. It is safe to say,  however, that the amendment  would not unsettle mining or the  general business of the country,  half,so much as compliance with  the mine owners' request for a  commission to strangle the eight-  hour law.   It can scarcely be claimed that;  the city council showed the medical health officer undue courtesy  last evening, in empowering alderman Arthur to hold the post-mortem upon Dr. LaBau's report. To  equal this performance th'e Board  of Trade would require to hand Jim  Wilks one of J. Roderick's speeches  for revision.  Conservati ve papers are again  ;_circulating=the-repoi,t=that=Honr=J>=  I. Tarte is about to resign his portfolio as minister of public Avorks in  the Laurier government. The most  unreliable thing in connection with  this story its source. Tarte has  given evidence of almost everything but an intention to resign.  Should the members of the present legislature consent to the  appointment of the commission  desired by the mine owners' association, it will go to show that the  majority of them consider that  election pledges are given only to  be broken.  J  S  Bay  MAJOR   MUROHISON'S   OFFENSE.  Ex-major Kenneth Murchison has  been brought to England from  Mafeking and lodged in Parkhurst  prison. He is condemned to penal  servitude for life, and the crime for  which he is suffering was the murder of Ernest Parslow, a Cape Town  journalist, whom he shot in Mafeking on November 1st last.  Murchison was a major oh the reserve of the Royal Artillery, and  before the outbreak of the war he  went to the Cape hoping to see service.   In colonel Hoare's fine regiment of irregulars���the Protectorates���he found a berth as trooper,  and afterwards, his identity having  become known, he was given a commission as lieutenant of artillery.  He was one of the best gunners in  South Africa.   In the hottest actions he stood by his pieces as erect  as a lance.  LILLIE BROTHERS  Parslow, a young man of about  thirty-three, represented the South  African News, a notorious Bond  paper, and the Daily Chronicle.  On November 1st, a few hours  after the battle of Cannon Kopje,  in which Murchison played a prominent part with his gun, Parslow  invited the artilleryman to dine  with him at Riesle's hotel. The invitation was accepted, and the pair  seemed to spend a pleasant hour.  But they remained too long at  table and it was observed that  Parslow became very quarrelsome.  A man who had never been with  soldiers before, he accused the officer of knowing nothing about guns  or trenches,upon which subject the  conversation had turned.  Murchison did not lose his temper. He merely bade Parslow good  night and walked out of the hotel.  The journalist followed him out,  across the market square, and into  his own hotel, "nagging" at him all  the time. Murchison, who kept his  temper all the while, advised him  repeatedly to go away. The foolish  young fellow refused, and challenged the officer to flght, anda few  minutes afterward those about the  hall of Dixon's hotel heard a shot.  Parslow lay at the door,'dead,  with a'.450 dum-dum bulletin his  head. Murchison stood about eight  paces off with his Webley revolver  in his hand. The evidence of the  court-martial demonstrated that  both men had been excited by wine,  and that Murchison had fired after  much provocation.  The sentence of the court-martial  was "death," but when the papers  were sent down to the high commissioner a commutation was made to  penal servitude for life.  It is possible that her majesty  will issue a proclamation pardoning  offenders who took up arras for her  in South Africa, in which event  Murchison should be made a free  man.    German Anti-Semitism.  An interesting side-light upon one  of the causes of the present horrible  conditions, in   China   comes   from  Germany.   It seems hardly credible  that    the     falsehoods   circulated  among the Chinese about the murder   of   children   by   missionaries  should be closely paralleled in Germany, the home of "illuminisai." It  appears, nevertheless, that   many  people there believe that the Jews  murder children to use their blood  for ritual purposes.   A further circumstance    shows    a    depth     of  depravity    to    which    the    "yellowest". American   journalism  has  neA7er sunk.    '���Influential" German  journels are said by the London  Christian World to have encouraged this atrocious delusion, even  to the extent of suggesting that  the  government connives at such  outrages,   and  allows the   Jewish  murderers to escape.   The alleged  murder of a schoolboy by the Jews  is said to have caused a riot at Ko-  nitz, in West Prussia, in which the  mob wrecked a synagogue, and order was restored only by calling  out the military.   The hold which  the   delusion has  gained   appears  from the fact that such eminent  scholars in the Old _ Testament as  professors Kautzsch and Rothstein  of Halle have been obliged to oppose,  it with their authority. By request  of the Jewish rabbi, Dr.  Fessler,  these learned Hebraists came forward   and publicly declared that  Kodaks  Uf  ffl  to  to  to  to  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  w  FRED  IRVINE <&  OO.

The astonishment due to such  happenings in Germany leaves little  astonishment for what happens in  benighted China. The Cologne  Gazette calls for the prosecution of  the authors of these foul charges.  HUGH  R.   CAMERON  TO TIJEJT  Furnished house with five rooms, ?30 per month.

BRITISH REGULAR WAS SHOT  While Canadians Were Spared.  Surgeon lieutenant-colonel Ryer-  son, Canadian and British Red  %_ Cross commissioner iu South Africa,  reached hi.s home in Toronto. A  -.healthy bronze and the glory of his  service to the empire aie the natural results of his journey.  Among his other souvenirs are a  complete set of Kruger money,  which promises to be very rare  hereafter; a Kaffir blanket, so light  and warm* that all the Canadian  oflicers were supplied with similar  ones out of the Red Cross fund ;  and president Steyn's inkstand.  Colonel Ryerson was in a train  which was shelled by the Boers and  from that very train he brings  home a notice in the Boerjanguage  warning burghers to refrain from  these practices. Some candid Boer  had written,.on it "This is all rot."  In his budget of news colonel  Ryerson has some items which have  not gotten into the newspapers.  For instance, there is a League of  Loyal Ladies in South Africa whose  object is to embellish the tombs of  the dead. The bodies of the Canadians, killed at Paardeberg, which  are now buried in an area of two  miles, will be collected and a handsome monument erected to which  doubtless Canadians will be glad to  subscribe. The Canadians, who are  in England just now had the option  of going into convalescent homes in ,  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  the country or to take furloughs in  London. Most of them chose the  latter and spent their shilling a day  in the metropolis.' They are now  also in receipt of two shillings and  sixpence per day from the Canadian  government. They will be home in  Canada within a few days^ ._  Colonel Ryerson thinks that the  Canadians iu South Africa will be  home early in October. The war is  practically over and on the Dun-  otter Castle, in which he sailed from  Cape Town to Liverpool, were 19  war correspondents and all the  military attaches. That looks like  the end of the war. He is of the  opinion that perhaps ten per cent  of the Canadians will remain in  South Africa. These are chiefly  westerners who will join the South  African Mounted Police which will  be reorganized into a body of ten  thousand men. The pay is high,  ten shillings a day and all found.  About colonel Hughes, not-much  is to be learned from colonel Ryerson, except that he was an excellent  soldier who wrote too much.. Colonel Ryerson never heard a word  about emergency rations in South  Africa, and was surprised at the  discussion out here.  Colonel Ryerson speaks of the  good luck of a Canadian, sergeant  Ross of Robert's Horse. While out  patrolling in the Free State, sergeant Ross, who is a graduate of  the Kingston school of mines, discovered a diamond mine. He has  taken out papers, issued a prospectus, and formed a joint stock company. There is always this kind of  off-chance of making a fortune in,  South Africa, and the mineral resources of the Free State are unknown, because prospecting. was  not encouraged under president  Steyn.  About the two Canadians guilty  of treason, colonel Ryerson states  that the sergeant who led them into  the difficulty was court-martialed  Imperial Bank of Ganada  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.  Capita!

The sergeant was a  regular. The two privates were  colonials, and got the benefit of  their countrymen's gallant record.

CITY LOCAL NEWS  The Ladies Aid Society of the  Congregational church will give a  social ou Friday evening at the  grounds  of W. L. Kribs,  Vernon  street.  The   grounds for the   tramway  company's   athletic park in Fair-  view have been surveyed by J. P.  Vance, and the tramway people are  now   securing   estimates   on   the  grading and building before  pro- |  ceeding with the organization of a I  company to carry out the undertaking.  Judge Forin leffc yesterday for a  two weeks' trip to the Coast.  John Manderson, who was com  mitted for trial on Saturday, desires a speedy trial. He will be  arraigned two weeks hence on the  return of judge Forin.  The new Congregational church  afc the corner of Stanley and Silica  streets is rapidly assuming shape,  and the outside casing will probably  be in position this week. At the  front of the church on the ground  floor are a couple of large and well  lighted rooms wliich Rev. William  Munroe hopes to utilize as a young  men's club.  The government has 30 men at  work on the wagon road from  Thompson's Landing to Trout Lake  and Ferguson. The road has been  in bad condition and the wholesalers complained of the difficulty  of freighting goods. J  The contract for the erection of  F. P. Gutelius' residence on tho east  side of Josephine street, between  Silica and Carbonate, was let yesterday to John Hepburn.  J. J. Campbell will move iuto his  residence on Hull Mines road today.  Rev. J. C. White takes Mr. Campbell's cottage across the lake for the  balance of the summer.  The C. P. R. engineering department has awarded the contract for  the Sandon and New Denver depots to D. J. Macgregor of Kaslo.  The building at Sandon will accommodate passengers and freight, and  is to cost $2500. The New Denver station is for passengers only  and will cost $500....  Dean Innes of London, Ontario,  who is making a tour of the west,  is staying at the Phair hotel.  Arrangements are under way for  the dance which the Trades and  Labor Council will give in Fraternity hall on Thursday. The affair  should be a great success.  The meeting of the executive of  the Nelson Amateur Athletic Association, which was called for last  evening, did not come off. Instead ifc  will be held this afternoon in Dr.  La Bau's office. The general meeting whicli was called for this evening has been called off.  David Mark Carley returned last  evening from a trip to1 Victoria. He  says his trip was purely for pleasure; that he did not talk politics  while away, nor meet wifch anyone  who did.  The final match in the quoiting  tournament was pitched yesterday  between A. H. Clements and J. H.  Wallace. Clements won the match  and consequently the club championship easily.  It was reported last night that  superintendent Winning of the  Chapleau mine, had his leg broken  at Slocan City while riding a horse  which he had purchased a few days  previously in Nelson. The animal  is said to have fallen with its rider,  breaking his leg in two places.  Wliich Lee Was It?  Some doubfc has been expressed  as to corporal Lee is, who was reported killed in a letter from H. M.  T. Pym. Everything in Mr. Pym's  letter points to it having been A. S.  Lee; who went to South Africa  with the first contingent.  The Miner thinks Mr. Pym  "undoubtedly meant corporal B. H.  Lee who lived iu Nelson for several  years, but, just before he leffc for  South Africa wifch Strathcona's  Horse, was residing in Kaslo." B.  H. Lee was an old time Nelsonite,  but had lived in Rossland for  several years, and came here from  Greenwood to enlist. He is  moreover a sergeant in Strathcona's Horse, not a '".corporal.  The only thing that causes any  doubt as to the identity of the  deceased is the fact that it is not  known that A. S. Lee had been  jnadejtjorporal nor that_he__was_  stationed with Strathcona's Horse.  It was known, however, that he  was ordered off somewhere on special duty. Both men have many  friends in Nelson and vicinity, and  they are anxiously awaiting more  definito news.  ,     Miscellaneous Mining Notes.

It is intended to develop the new  find immediately.  The smelter will not blow in today as was anticipated. The reservoir at the smelter is supplied  from thecity power dam and the  stopping of the supply through the  breakage of the dam has delayed  matters for a few days. Good progress is being made wifch the building to accomodate the new mechanical roaster, the excavations aud  foundation being about completed.  Lately when grading the track  for the siding to the main workings  upon the Winnipeg on the western  part of the property, near the  Brandon, a cutting disclosed a fine  seam of high grade ore, the best  yet found on the property, says the  Rossland Miner. This ledge was  found to run slightly to the south,  diverging somewhat from the line  of the railway grading. Its strike  was not the same as the other  ledges found on the property and  intersected one to the immediate  south of its location. The seam was  found to be three feet wide and an  open cut was made out of which ore  has been broken and sent to the  Trail smelter. The lowest carload  of this has yielded $10.20 net, deducting the smelter charge for  for freight and treatment, then  amounting to $7 per ton.  At the Recorder's Office.
