 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  ���{  .'������**?��  ���y -  ���_?  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSOTST: THURSDAY MORNING A.UGUST 30 J900  PRICE FIVE GENTS  OBJECTS TO BE SECURED  A Conference Proposed.  Washington,    August    29. ��� A  special   meeting   of   the   cabinet,  lasting all day aud broken only by  a short recess for luncheon, marked  the intense   interest   the   administration feels in the Chinese problem.    It was the longest cabinet  session of the present administration.    The diplomatic and military  phases of  the situation in China  -were under consideration, and this  accounted    for    the   presence   of  acting secretary Adee, a very unusual happening afc a cabinet' meeting.     Mr.   Adee  is   the   medium  through wliich the foreign governments   communicate   and   he   has  been in receipt of   a good many  statements recently.   Lasfc evening  he   and the French   charge,   Mr.  Thiebaut,   compared   the   French  and    American     copies    of     the  credentials of Li Hung Chang.   Today he had long talks with minister  Wu and the German charge, and  the   substances of   these   conversations he laid before the cabinet.  Ifc is understood that the cabinet  today completed preparations of a  plan for clearing away much of the  uncertainty that now exists as to  the future in  Chiua, and  outlined  its own views in writing.    The fact  that  the military situation is  admitted to be of secondary importance  confirms the view, though no  cabinet officer would vouchsafe  information ou this  point, that what  is sought is an agreement among  the powers for terminating the  indefinite state of affairs iu China.  Most of the objects held in view  by the president Avhen he made  answer to the Chinese government  appeals and began the campaign-  upou Pekin have been achieved.  Two others remain to be secured,  namely, the safeguarding of American interests'for the future and  some proper guarantee for indemnification for the expenses of recent operations and losses of American citizens. Incidental to, this  main purpose, several phases of  the.problem are attracting special  attention. Thus, the suffi-  ci��jpcy " of Li - Hung Chang's  credentials as a peace envoy, or  rather of the ability of  the emperor of Chiua to accredit  auy one thus, is a matter of international consideration. The  United States not only must satisfy itself of Li's competency, but it  must convey solid assurance on  that point to convince some of the  other powers, the purposes of  which, perhaps, would not best be  served by a speedy termination of  hostilities in China. It was the  general understanding that the  outcome of today's cabinet meeting  would be the adoption' of a policy"  by the administration that would  tend to simplify these issues and  at least bring to a focus the varying  aspirations of the powers. If this  cannot be done then the question to  -be-determined-is whether or not  the United States shall proceed  further, hand in hand, with the  allied forces.  The suggestion that a conference  be held of the nations represented  in China is again revived as an  accompaniment of this purpose"; and  it is pointed out that with special  commissioner Rockhill jusfc aboufc  arriving on Chinese soil, with von  Schwartzenstein, the German suc-  cessorto baron von Ketteler,already  in China, with the ministers resident at Pekin, and with the high  military and naval officers in the  Pei Ho valley, the material is  already at hand for the gathering  of a conference fully equipped to  deal with even this complex aud  difficult problem.  Consul Fowler, at Che Foo, got a  routine dispatch today of current  date, and the navy department has  been informed, that the cable company's ship was aboufc to leave  Shang-Hai today to lay a direct  cable connecting Shang-Hai with  Che Foo, one of the weakest links  in the chain of communication at  present. These improved conditions  as to the opening of communication  between the military and naval  commanders, and the authorities  here have , made it possible for th e  latter to abandon the purpose conceived yesterday of employing  naval vessels to convey by water  the messages between Shang-Hai  and Che Foo.  The attitude of Germany was the  subject of much official discussion  during the day. Early in the day  the German charge d'affaires, baron  Sprek von Sternburg, had a long  conference  with acting  secretary  Adee. It is understood that any  question which may have arisen as  to the future course of Germany  is met by a reference to an official  note by count von Buelow, German  minister of foreign affairs, issued  July 22nd which fully defined  Germany's purpose in China. This  note of the German chancellor followed within ten days of secretary  Hay's note to the powers on July  3rd and is somewhat analogous in  setting forth Germany's intentions.  Tien-Tsin, August 23���Via Che-  Foo, August 29.���One thousand  Russians left Tien-Tsin for Pekin  today.    The country here is quiet.  Che-Foo, August 20.���Yu, governor of the province of Slien Si, is  reported to have' invited the foreigners in the province to come to  his protection. About fifty accepted the invitation, and all were  massacred.  Ll HAS NOT BEEN HEARD FROM  For Several Days.  Washington, August 29.���The  latest phase of the diplomatic  tangle involving the powers now  interested in China is the form of  Li Hung Chang's credentials.  The point of attack of the powers  which are opposing the.recognition  of Li Hung Chang as a plenipotentiary is now the > authority of the  titular Chinese government to issue  any credential worth recognizing.  In other words, admitting that Li's  credentials were properly issued by  the emperor Kwang Hsu, the contention is that that monarch cannot, by himself, or through his  agent, Li Hung Chang, enter into  any engagement or give any guarantee-which the Chinese people as a  whole will.accept as binding.  This subject is now receiving the  careful attention of. the secretary  of state. Meanwhile minister Wu  and the department are in ignorance  as to the whereabouts of Li Hung  Chang, and from the fact .that  nothing has been heard .from^bim;  for four days ait'ieast, it"is'cbfijec-'  tured that he may have ~ left  Shang-Hai by sea and that he will  uot appear in Taku and demand  access to Pekin:  Firebugs at Work.  Winnipeg, August 29.���Firebugs  were again at their work in Winnipeg lasfc night. The firemen were  called out at 11:30 to quench a  small conflagration raging in the  north end of the city. While at  work here another fire started on  Portage avenue and the following  stores were destroyed: Conway's  auction rooms, residence and warehouse; J. MeLeod Halliday, commission merchant; Kepfell, repair  shops;"McLean's bicycle shop; Mc-  Kenzie's plumbing store;Miss Bruce,  millinery; the Singer Manufacturing company's wareroonis and several others. The burning buildings  areadjoining the Y. W\C..A._build--  ~ing, which is certain to be damaged.  Ifc is reported tonight that the firebug has been captured.  Mrs Bressi Hears the News.  Neav York, August 29.���The  news that her husband had been  sentenced to life imprisonment for  killing king Humbert of Italy was  carried to Mrs Bressi at her home  in Unionhill, New Jersey, today.  When told of the sentence she  wept bitterly. When she calmed  down she said: "My poor Gasteno!  He has .been tried, convicted and  sentenced in one day. That was a  great injustice. I would rather see  him dead than see him go to prison  for life. I know he will not be  able to stand long the life he will  have to lead in prison."  Bressi Gets Life.  Milan, August 29.���Bressi, the  assassin of king Humbert, escaped  with life imprisonment, as that  penalty is the most severe which  can be imposed under the laws of  Italy for murder, on which charge  the anarchist was tried. It was at  first believed that Bressi would be  tried on the charge of treason, in  which case the penalty would have  been death.  Guida1 Deported.  New York, August 29.���The  Italian named Guida, who arrived  in this country two weeks ago, in  company with the alleged anarchist  Maresca, was today on instructions  from the treasury department,  ordered excluded from this country  and deported to Europe. The men  were charged with being parties to  a plot to kill president McKiniey.  IS FAVORABLY IMPRESSED  With Boundary Showings.  Greenwood,      August     29. ���  [Special     to     The     Tribune.] ���  Professor   S.   F. Emmons, of   the  United States Geological Survey is  occupying a part of his vacation in  looking   into   the geology of the  Boundary Creek district.   He has  visited most of the better developed  of the mines and appears to be  favorably impressed with the prospects of the district from a mining  point of view.   In his official capacity the professor has charge of the  geology of the metallic minerals of  the United States, and exercises a  general supervision over all work  done   under   the  auspices of   the  Geological   Survey   in   connection  with the ore deposits of the United  States.   He has been engaged in  geologic research for the past thirty  years and has written freely on  geology   and   the   occurrence    of  minerals.   His most important published work was one entitled " The  Geology of the Mining Industry of  Leadville,   Colorado."     This   was  published by the government   of  the United States in 1886.   Accompanying the comprehensive letterpress was au elaborate atlas of 35  plates   illustrative, of tbe subject  matter of this valuable work, which  has long been the standard authority on the' geology of   Leadville.  Professor   Emmons will, give evidence at Rossland in the Centre  Star-Iron Mask case, and will before  his return to Washington, D. C,  .visit Nelson.  Postoffice Inspector Dorman came  in on-last night's train eh route to  Midway and Pentieton to close the  contract "for the conveyance of  mails between these two points.  For years Messrs.* Snodgrass & Sons  have maintained in a thorough and  satisfactory manner the service between Pentieton and Grand Forks,  via Okanagan Falls, McCuddy's,  Camp' McKinney,- Midway' and  Greenwood, but now that the railway" has been completed to Midway  and that firm's contract has expired, the service has been divided  and altered. Mr. Meyerhoff, a  well-known freighter on this road,  has secured the contract between  Midway and McCuddy's. and Mr.  R. Hall, proprietor of the stage line  between Fairview and Pentieton, is  the successful .tenderer for the  service between Pentieton and McCuddy's via Fairview. This change  will leave Okanagan Falls off the  through route, and separate arrangements will now have to be  made to provide a mail service for  that town.   Troops Landed.  Berlin, August 29.���The German  naval commander, at Taku telegraphs that, according to the returns asked for by the senior admiral of the allied fleets, the following troops have beenJanded^up_to^  movement to better their own condition and to relieve the overworked  ;mblic. The Amalgamated Waiters'  Uociefcy has issued  an ultimatum  declaring that unless   the evil is  remedied  it   will   oppose   issuing  licenses to the worst offenders before the county council.    The ultimatum   protests against "the degrading and demoralizing system of  tips upon which  the waiters  have  to depend. Ifc is a system of cadging  which destroys our manhood, is an  Unfair    tax    upon    the      public  and places    th<?    poor. man    at  af disadvantage in public places."  Then follows a list of restaurants  charging the,waiters for the privilege' of serving, those paying no  wages and those paying poor wages.  Under the first;,-head are certain  cafes which force waiters to pay 35  cents to $1 a day, and the highest  wages paid in any of the places  complained of is $5.25 a week.   The  waiters demand" 25 cents an hour  for regular work, 35 cents an hqur  for   all over eight hours, and 50  cents   an   hour, between 1  and 6  o'clock   in   the morning,   and no  waiter to work over" ten hours a  day.   All these demands apply to  waitresses also.   .  :August_8fc_rA.merican, 155 officers  and 4470 men; British, 182 officers  and 5942 men; French, 115 officers  and 2903 men; Italian, 13 officers  and 977 men; Japanese, 572 officei s  and 19,598 men; Russians, 275  officers and 11,500 men.

Washington, August 29.���There  is no doubt that general Chaffee  will be appointed brigadier-general  in the regular army upon the retirement next week of general Joseph  Wheeler. ��� It is stated at the ,war  department that the distinguished  services which general Chaffee has  rendered in China entitle him to  this consideration.  Plot to Burn Shang-Hai.  Berlin, August 29.���The Frankfort Zeitung has received a dispatch from %Shang-Hai saying that  a plot has been discovered there to  burn the whole city. It is added  that the Europeans consider the  streets unsafe after nightfall and  the general situation is described as  critical. ..          Watching Eoumanians.

Will Have Lasting Effect.  '  New York, August 29.���Advices  from London indicate that the  strike of coal miners and railroad  employees of Wales is likely to  have a lasting effect upon the  American coal business. Up to this  time most of the foreign coal shipments have been on orders of different governments, which have needed  the coal for their warships, but  now-inquiries are'eoming-from pri"  vate consumers of coal in England,  France, Germany and Russia.  ARE NOT TO BE DICTATED TO  Bv the Yellow Man.  London, August 30.-3:30 a. m.���  Amid the growing difficulties of the  Chinese imbroglio, Mr. Broderick's  emphatic declaration at Thorncomb  last evening proves that the British  government does not yet see any  way to depart from the line of  policy originally decided upon,  namely, to take no responsibility  for the administration of China.  Mr; Broderick' said he hoped it  would not be supposed that the  government was pusillanimous in  this respect. Its object was to  maintain British interests. It was  quite ready to take its share of the  white, man's burden, biit could not  admit that the nature of that burden should be dictated to it by the  yellow man.  "Here," the Morning Post  observes, " is where the difficulty of  selecting a policy comes in. We  cannot decamp and leave the  powers to settle the matter between  them."  Sir Chi Chen Loh Feng Loo, the  Chinese minister in London asserts  that he is in constant communication with Li Hung Chang, who is  still in Shang-Hai.  ' Dispatches received this morning  bring no later Pekin news. A  Shang-Hai telegram says that Li  Hung Chang has' sent a memorial  "begging the" empress dowager to  appoint prince Ching, general  Yung Lu and the Yang Tse viceroys as joint peacemakers with  himself.  There are conflicting rumors of a  *>great battle in which 1500 Boxers  find prince Tuan were killed..  The Hong Kong correspondent of  the Daily Mail, wiring , yesterday,  'says\he understands that general  Gaselee, the British commander  with the allies, had countermanded  his order summoning more troops  to the north, and that probably the  British troops will go to Amoy. ���  ....

General Creagh,  the   presence   of   vice-admiral  The sum realized from the sale of  tickets and subscriptions will be  large. It will be held in trust by a  committee, who will invest the  money and pay the interest to Sullivan. Among those who appeared  in bouts were Peter Maher and  Peter Burns, and Gus Ruhlin and  Charlie Goff. Bob Fitzsimmons  and Jeff Thorn of England fought  a three round burlesque, and both  were counted oufc. John L. Sullivan and James J. Jeffries came on  for the wind up. , Sullivan  thanked everybody for their  kindness to him in a neat  little speech. Jeffries did not respond when called on to say a few  words, but through the announcer,  Joe Humphreys, he said ',he would  at all times be ready to defend his  title of champion heavyweight. .

The Taku correspondent ;:of the Daily ^Telegraph,  wiring August 26th, says that the  country around Taku and Pekin is  devastated by the peasantry. The  Boxers', who were moving-north  from'Sen Tung, are now returning  to their homes.  Belated dispatches and the stories  of refugees arriving at Che-Foo  continue to . describe the terrible  conditions in Pekin. One of the  worst incidents is the shocking  desecration of the foreign cemetery  outside the west wall. The details  are too revolting to be described.  Hundreds of bodies of Chinese are  found in the streets of Pekin, sup-  -posed-to-be-thoseof-traitorstothe"  cause of the Boxers.  A Shang-Hai correspondent of  the Times says a native official  telegram from Pao Ting Fu announces the arrival of the court  last Sunday at Ta Tuen Fu. Communication between Pekin and Tien-  Tsin is interrupted, probably -because bands of-Boxers made the  road unsafe for couriers.  The country north of Yaiig Tun  is said to be flooded. A German  firm is negotiating with Chang Chi  Tung, the Wu Chang viceroy, to  lend him 1,000,000 taels on the  security of certain viceregal industrial undertakings.  A correspondent at New-Chwang  says that the Russians at Hai Cheng  are awaiting reinforcements, whose  advance is delayed by the impassable condition of the roads to Lao  Yang and Mukdel. Meanwhile the  native population of the district is  being treated with the utmost  severity. Eye \ witnesses report an  indiscriminate slaughter of non-  combatants and the reduction of  the country in the vicinity of Port  Arthur to a state of utter desolation.   Czar Hates War.  London, August 30.���Dr. Leyd's  interview with emperor Nicholas,  says a dispatch to the Daily Mail  from St. Petersburg, lasted barely  five minutes. The czar said he was  sorry that he could do nothing for  the Transvaal except to urge it to  make peace, as ho hated war.  Sullivan's Benefit.  New York, August 29.���John L.  Sullivan was given a rousing benefit at the Twentieth Century Club  in Madison Square Garden tonight.  Kaslo, August 28���[Special to  The Tribune]���George Hageman of  this city has brought down from  the Lardo-Duncan some. fine specimens of gray copper ore from the  Golden Eagle group. He is having  assays made and expects to get a  rich report. The history of this  group is romantic. , Some ..three  years ago or more the claims were  located and Hageman then wanted  a local man to put up about $200 to  do some of the assessment work.  The latter did not feel inclined to  venture and so lost a half interest  in a group for "which now Hageman  would notjftake $30,000 cash. He  has planned a vigorous campaign  of work for next year. He does nofc  intend to do anything else on the  property this season but with the  departure of the snow, from the  Lardo.next spring he will take in  a force of men and after getting  out enough ore from near the. surface to pay expenses he will start  a tunnel to get depth. He also  intends to have his own packtrain  to. take the ore out to the river.  7-Hugh Gillis, who is conducting  the", government road work in the  "neighborhood of the west fork-of  the. Duncan river, was in town the  other day, and reports great activity in the district. The Old Gold  company is working twenty men,'  eight miles up tbe west fork, and  the men expect to strike the ledge  shortly. Near at hand, the Guinea  Gold mines have met four feet of  solid galena at a depth of ten feet.  A" good deal of money is being  spent by the government in making  the region accessible by roads,  trails and bridges.  Ernest Mansfield has got back  from London, as confident as ever  of being able to make Kaslo and  Nelson the scene of the spending of  much English .capital, which he  hopes will be equally beneficial to  himself, the country aiid his English  friends. During this week he has  been a busy man. He spent^most  of���his-time"- at~~Camp Mansfield,  whence he went last Saturday, returning once or twice to this town  to attend to matters here. Interviewed by a reporter, he spoke  highly of Charles Plowman's activity in London. He stated that the  gentleman had been able to secure  ��50,000 to be spent between developing the Fletcher gold property,  near Whitewater,and certain claims  in camp Mansfield. As for himself,  Mr. Mansfield remarked that he had  been able to obtain $150,000 for  immediate use in Camp Mansfield.  Nothing Decided Finally.  London, August 30.���The Daily  Telegraph prints an interview with  sir Thomas Lipton at Queenstown  yesterday, in the course of which  he said it was impossible that any  fixture for an international race  should be made as yet. He declared  that he would name his new yacht  Shamrock, and denied the report  that he intended to make the challenge under the auspices of the  Cork club. Nothing whatever, he  asserted, had yet been 'decided finally. He felt, however, that he  would certainly retire if another  challenger should appear in the  field. In that event he would give  the services of the first Shamrock  for trials.  Cable Almost Eeady.  Washington, August 29. ��� A  cable dispatch from Che-Foo announces that the telegraphic cable  between Che-Foo and Shang-Hai  will be ready for traffic on September 7th. The commander of the  German gunboat Jaguar reports  that communication with Pekin is  still exposed to temporary interruption.  S__a  On Electric Light Dam.  At noon yesterday work was sus  pended on the repairs to the' elec  trie light dam, and it "is entirely^, i  probable that the city council will \-  decide to abandon the site altdi%;%  gether and locate the power* dam?'  at a point further up the creek.~$-tl  An emergency" meeting of the coun-f  cil took place on the ground at _.  o'clock, the members present  aldermen Irvine, ' Arthur - and'  McKillop. The suspension of.worS^^I  was authorized -by the, aldermenV^I  after an inspection of the" ground;^.,,  City engineer McCuIloch informed O^  the council that he strongly recoinplg^l  mended no further expenditure \6__'fiyff  the old dam, for the reason that rio.f?"'  solid foundation could be secure'd^rai  for the crib work, and the da'ngerj-^lyf  of washouts would always be pres-r)$m  ent.    In ' support of this argument^M  he showed the aldermen, a test pit>^*0.|  reaching  twenty-nine   feet -belo^wj^  the old water level.

A   petition   is now being   circulated   for signature  among the  residents of what is known as the  Davies addition, in which the city,  council is asked to extend the limits  of the corporation so as to include  the   property, of   the   petitioners.  Too much caution cannot be exei-  cised by the council in dealing with  this request, as the example of the  residents of the Davies addition is  sure to be followed by the residents  of Bogustown, and,probably by the  residents of a considerable portion  of the Hume addition.     It is for  the council to carefully weigh the  advantages and disadvantages from  the   city's   point of   view.      The  eagerness, of- the .residents pfrt_e,  additions to be included within the  corporate limits is in itself evidence  that they expect to profit by the  change.   They desire roadways and  sidewalks and such conveniences as_  water services, sewer services and  electric lighting.     It   is   for   the  council to determine what it will  cost the corporation to supply these  in excess of what the corporation  .would receive from the residents of  the included area in the way of  real estate taxes and charges, and  also whether the present, incorporated area is sufficiently well  provided with street improvements  and public utilities to justify the  council iu transferring its attention  to the outside additions.

Belgian haves are being shipped  to the Chicago and New York markets in enormous numbers from the  west. There are large numbers of  rabbit farms in Nebraska, and  Omaha commission men are beginning to reap a rich harvest from  this traffic. A ready sale is found  for the animals for shipment to all  eastern cities, says a Chicago paper.  The income from some of these rabbit farms, started by children, has  been large. At Columbus a boy  started with a pair of rabbits and  in one year 'cleared $300  and had left more than 200 rabbits.  They breed six times a year and begin to propagate at tne age of four  months. Many of these little animals have escaped in Nebraska and  Kansas and have already occasioned,  alarm among the farmers for fear  that they will increase so rapidly  that they will become a menace to  crops. Belgian hares are offered  for sale in all the markets around  Omaha, and several of the big packers are arranging to pack the animals for foreign shipment. The  flesh "does not resemble that of the,  wild rabbit, but is very white and  sweet.         Fell Dead.  Chatham, Ontario, August 29.���  Joseph C.

Although Rome,  |uid   later   Italy,   have supported  Euauy tyrants who have trampled  jipon the necks   of the people as  Iii pon worms, others  of its rulers,  Iking Humbert among the number,  lhave had the good of. the peasants  [thoroughly at heart aud have en-  Ideavored to improve and amelior-  late    their   condition.     Especially  Inotable as  a means to   this end  [have been the irrigation works of  ilfcaly,   largely     undertaken    and  Ifostered by   her   successive   mon-  |archs and ministers.  The early Romans were careful  lirrigators and Italy is known in  Ihistory as the classic land of 'irrigation, although it is not believed  ���that any large irrigation systems  pr great canals were constructed  [uutil in comparatively recent times.  A.s in the far Bast, springs, wells  md small streams, easily diverted  from their channels, were the  sources of supply; but in the last  new centuries Italy has developed  ���some magnificent irrigation sys-  Items. In the districts of Piedmont  land Lombardy hundreds of thou-  [sands of poor people have found  [relief and comfort through the re-  Ivivifying influence of water, great  | tracts of marsh and waste land  [having been reclaimed to irrigation.  [Nothing could be more striking  I than the contrast between some of  Jthe irrigated and the unirrigated  [districts.-  Many of the latter are  among the most densely populated  regions of Europe.    Their soils have-  received just the element needed to  call forth their inherent powers and  instead of arid wastes and extensive marshes, corn fields, rice grounds,  fiax-fields and green  meadows pro-  ,dueing_wonderful-crops,-cover-the-  face of the country, with  prosperous farms and cottages surrounded  by the vine and the fig, and ��� inhabited by happy families.    It is  .only    necessary   to   compare   the  present conditions of the provinces  where irrigation exists with their  destitute past to see the good which  a    wise     government   policy   has  wrought for   the   people.   Nearly  six hundred years have been required   to    perfect   the    splendid  canal system of Piedmont, aud to  change    its     once     arid     wastes  and   dreary   marshes   into   sheets  of cultivation.    The moral presents  itself   that   to   irrigators   in    the  United States, who are but beginning   this work,   they may   have  cheerful hearts in   sight   of what  has already been accomplished in  this country by private capital in a  fiftieth part of that time.  The late king always evinced a  particular interest in the irrigation  work of the state and in the possibilities of rural improvement  through water reclamation. While  about seven million acres of land in  Italy are already under irrigation  this is by no means all the land subject to reclamation and projects  are now on foot for additional development, . tHe possibilities , of  which are very great. The great  government irrigating canals in  Italy have a length of over 140  miles and the vast network of distributing channels aggregate a  total length of something over  4000 miles.  It is understood that the new  king, Victor Emmanuel III, will  devote himself largely to internal  improvements, first breaking away  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.

CITY LOCAL NEWS  Born, in Nelson, on Tuesday-  evening, to the wife for James  Sproat, a daughter. -  D. I. Demar reports a steady improvement in the demand of residential property. This is a good  indication that business is on the  mend.  The city council will not meet  tonight, as arranged, owing to the  visit of the aldermen to Grand  Forks. The next regular session is  on Tuesday night.  James Blakeley, a popular C. P. R,  engineer, was married yesterday to  J\iiss Lizzie Standen.  The arbitration of the matters in  dispute between the 0. P. R. and  G. F. Beer   opened _at the   court  house yesterday.   The company expropriated a piece of land at Five-  Mile point owned by Mr. Beer and  offered   $162.50   as   compensation.  Mr. Beer refused the offer, claiming  $2250.    The settlement of the land  value was left to W. J. Goepel, W.  S. Dowsing and Dr. Hall, who; commenced taking evidence yesterday.  Charles E. Hope, manager of the  Emily Edith  property, near New  Denver, was registered at the Hotel  Phair  yesterday.    Work was recommenced two months ago on the  property and twenty men are now  employed.     Development work is  being carried on exclusively.  Work is now in full swing  on  the mattrass factory which J. W.  Holmes, G. Si, Nagle and 11. Winchester are erecting on Front street  between G. O. Buchanan's office and  the railroad track. The building is  to be 40 by SO feet, three stories on  one side and two on the other. Mr.  Holmes will also install apparatus  for turning out fret and grille work.  Sung Chong, a Chinese laundryman, ha? laid an information charging E. C. Cordingly with assault.  Defendant is not in the city.  The executive committee of the  Anglican diocese of Kootenay meets  at Kaslo on September 12 th. The  Nelson members are Rev. H. A.  Akehurst, George Johnston, J. M.  Lay and E. A. Crease.  M. D. Forster, C. P. 11. agent at  Eholt, has been transferred to the  local freight office.  At the next meeting of the council of the board of trade a letter  from the management of the Spokane fruit fair urging the board to  make a mineral exhibit this year  will be discussed. ��  James V. Welch has seventy men  at work ou the improvements to  the section of the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard road between here and  Five-mile point, recently acquired  by the C. P. R. He has established  camps at Five-mile and Three-mile,  and J. W. Stewart has a third  camp near Florence park.  The intelligence, so remarkable  in sheep dogs, was amply exemplified yesterday. A band of about  500 sheep were being driven down  the hill near the smelter yesterday  afternoon. They were in the act  of crossing the smelter siding just  as a train on the down grade was  approaching. It looked for a moment as ~ though there would be a  slaughter, but the intelligence of  the dog, in keeping the sheep moving, saved the day.  . E. R. Purdy, Bradstreets' local  representative, left for Rossland  this morning ombusiness connected  with his company.  The tennis club's tournament was  continued. yesterday, several  matches being played during the  afternoon. In the mixed doubles  Haines and Miss B. Hedley defeated  Crickmay and Miss Hedley, and  Macrae and Mrs. Pollok defeated  Barrow and Mrs. Stewart. In the  gentlemen's ' doubles Selous and  Macrae defeated Haines and  Thompson, and Barrow aud Brown  defeated Heathcote and Pollock.  The following books have been  added to the library: Autobiography of a Quack, by S. Weir  Mitchell; Redemption of David  Corson, by C. F. Goss; Robert  Orange, by J. Oliver Hobbes.  In response to an invitation from  mayor Manly of Grand Forks,  inviting the Nelson city council to  attend a banquet there tonight,  aldermen Irvine, Arthur, Hall, and  Morrison, city clerk  Strachan  and  Epwate���School  And Kindergarten.  Thorough English, Calisthenics, Music, German and French if required. Fall term commences 3rd September.  For particulars apply to  MISS PaLMER, Josephino Streot.  city engineer McCuIloch will leave  this afternoon to attend the function, which is given by the citizens  of Grand Forks in honor of the  Miner-Graves * smelter syndicate.  The C. P. R. is furnishing transportation, ancl superintendent  Troup, with other officials, will  accompany the party.  "Sapho" Well Received.  The Australian Comedy Company  opened a four nights' engagement  at the opera house last night with  a remodelled adaptation of Daudet's  well known work "Sapho." The  opera house was filled and the  audience proved quite enthusiastic.  The play is open to criticism, but  the company lived up to the  pleasant things said of it in advance by interpreting the bill with  an ability which immeasurably outdistanced the efforts of dramatic  companies which have visited  Nelson since its theatre was erected.  Miss Elliot in the title role delighted  her audience and established herself  in the hearts of theatregoers as a  thoroughly capable artist. Mr.  Cochrane also made a splendid impression and his little curtain  speech made a decided hit. The  support was much above the"average, and the play was staged and  costumed with a degree of taste  and intelligence which could not  fail to win admiration. Tonight  the company presents "Caste" and  will doubtless be rewarded with the  measure of patronage which their  woz_ richly merits.  At the Recorder's Offlce.

He just arrived from Rossland,  and had never seen a street car in  his life. After alighting at the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard depot he  boarded an electric car for the city.  "How much," he.inquired of the  conductor, "will it cost to go to my  son John's house " ? "Ten cents,"  answered the. conductor.  "Gosh," said he, when he returned  to Rossland, "I must be well known  in Nelson; and it beats the deuce,  anyway, how. that little wire pulls  them big cars, along...'the_s.treet._���^-^  ESTABLISHED 1892  Had No Freeze-Up.

Corbett and McCoy.  New York, August 29.���After ineffectual .attempts for the past two  years to get James J. Corbett and  Charles (Kid) McCoy to meet in the  ring, on the part of different matchmakers, Mr. Kennedy, of the Twentieth Century Athletic club, has at  last succeeded in bringing together  the two men who are conceded to  be the cleverest and shiftiest artists  in the prize-fighting business. Corbett and McCoy are to do battle  tomorrow night at 31adisou Square  garden under the auspices of the  Twentieth Century Athletic club.  Corbett and McCoy finished their  training for the battle today.  McCoy put on the finishing  touches of his preparation at  Saratoga, and announced at the  conclusion of. his day's work* that  he was fit to fight. He weighs ten  pounds more than he ever did, and  is satisfied that if he is beaten it  will not be due to lack of condition.  McCoy left Saratoga for the city  this evening. Corbett, who has  been conditioning himself at Bath  Beach, put a few finishing touches  to his training today.  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  PHAIR.���Jas. Osborn, Vancouver; D. E. Jack-  man.
