New York, August 20.���TJie Tribune's London cable letter deals  extensively iu a discussion of the  business and South African war  situation aud tlieir political ramifications. ��� Ifc says in this connection  in part: "Opinion on the far eastern question, which has oscillated  during the last few weeks from the  depth of despondency to optimism  and back again, may uoav bo said  to be inau expectant mood. People  are waiting to make up their minds,  ancl while some think the Chinese  crisis is practically over, others suggest thafc ifc has just begun.  "Meanwhile the Chinese minister  here has unbosomed himself at some  length, and exhibits a not unnatural  indignation at the manner in which  he he has openly been branded as  a liar in a newspaper and by various highly respectable Chinese experts. He insists that the main  trouble is due to the missionaries,  and thafc there will be no peace in  China as long as they are permitted  to work among the native population.  "Mr. Chamberlain's publication of  the letters from Labouchere and  others to Boer leaders is generally  regarded as rather a good piece of  electioneering, bufc I believe that it  was nofc intended to publish the  collection jusfc now, bufc to keep.it  back till the eve of the general election when the bolt might have been  shot with more effect. Mr, Labou-  chere cleverly forced the hands by  publishing his own letters himself.  By the date of the elections the  impression produced by these documents may have worn off. Tho  letters from the Cape statesmen are  an emphatic indictment of the Kruger regime while on the other hand  the Liberals contend that these  letters also prove clearly that there  never was a general Afrikander  conspiracy against Great Britain.  Lord Roberts' last proclamation,  declining .to .recognize the.neutrality of. non-combatanfc burghers, is  generally, approved, though there  is an inclination to complain that  ifc is not sufficiently drastic. Thus  Punch has published a cartoon in  whjeh lord Roberts is upbraided for  hisS^'Xcossive generosity, and a Conservative newspaper has been  openly recommending that he should  adopt Weyler's Cuban policy and  carry it out thoroughly. Ifc is true  that this suggestion is made in only  the Sfc. James Gazette, a journal  which has lost the' high reputation  it once enjoyed and is now edited  in a very irresponsible fashion.  "Similarly, the death penalty  visited upon the wretched young  German lieutenant, Cordua, has  been received with shouts of satisfaction, and .there was hardly a  hint any where thafc clemency should  have been extended to the rash  young man. Undoubtedly Cordua,  in breakingTijaparole.and conspii__  ing against the British authorities,  rendered himself liable to the severest punishment under martial  law, bufc ifc is also true that his plot  against lord Roberts was really originated by the Spanish police officer Garo, by whom the whole idea  was suggested to Cordua. Ifc is  urged, however, that au example  was really necessary to teach the  Boers not to engage in secret conspiracies and violate their oaths.  " I fancy the impatienco against  the Boers is rafcher moro pronounced  with the classes than with the  masses. The prolongation of the  war has interfered with business,  caused stagnation in' finance aud  clouded the whole political future  with uncertainty. The prevailing  doubt about the general election is  highly inconvenient to members of  parliament, candidates and supporters of the two great parties  generally. With the populace, however, mingled with animosity  against the Boers there seems to  foe rising a certain good-humored  fo'erance and even admiration for  these tenacious foes. Dewet has  strongly appealed to the sporting  instincts of the British nation, and  headings like this: 'Transvaal  JEfandicap; Dewet Still Leading,'  __re not uncommon in the cheap  newspapers which appeal to workingmen.  "Dewet's progress eastward now  seems effectually checked by Baden-  Pow;ell, who has got across the line  separating him from Lydenburg  and Barberton districts, and the  great guerrilla leader has fallen  back, and is now making for the  Orange Free State again, probably  intending     to     attack    Roberts J  columns. According to the commander-in-chief, Dewet has only  300 men with him, but this may be  underestimated.  ������j "Meanwhile, and quite without  reference to Dewet, the Boers are in  considerable force in the Transvaal.  Boor officials have been re-established in Zoernst. Litchenberg, Pofc-  schefstroom, Klerksdorp and Rust-  enburg, so that practically the  Euglish have abandoned the occupation of the country from Mafeking almost to the outskirts of  Johannesburg."  ENTERPRISE REPORT ISSUED  Regular Shipments Promised.  The report of the directors of the  New Zealand Minerals Company  has been issued in London. This  company is interested with the  London & British Columbia Gold-  fields iu several British Columbia  properties, notably the Whitewater  aud Enterprise. In referring to  their British Columbia interests, the  directors report progress as follows:  The Whitewater Mine.���The  miners' strike whicli took place in  British Columbia continued from  Juno 1st, 1S99, until well on into  this year, during which time the  ore could nofc be worked, aud the  miue had eventually to be shut  down. Prior to the strike, it was  found that the work being done by  the concentrating mill was so unsatisfactory that very large values  were lost, and passed away in the  tailings, rendering alterations to  the mill equipment advisable. The  principal part of these alterations  was carried out during the strike  period, which, with an improved  method of mining recently adopted,  will, it is expected, give a much  more favorable result than has  hitherto been achieved. Work at  the mine was resumed as soon after  the termination of the strike as  possible, but owing to the difficulty  of procuring suitable miners', it was  not until -May that the mill was  able to be in.,full -work, and even  then'such was: only- practicable by  putting "through low grade ore  from the' dumps, which, moreover,  did not give a satisfactory concentration.  Owing to the strike, already referred to, it became quite impossible either to equip or start work  upon the Enterprise (British Columbia) mines until March last. During  the strike period, however, advantage was taken of the opportunity  to ship to'the smelters the ore left  in the bins by the former owners,  upon wliich a net profit of about  ��8,000 was realized. The result was.  satisfactory in proving this ore to  bo richer than anticipated. At the  termination of the strike, work afc  the mine was commenced, consisting of "geueral equipment and the  usual preliminary works necessary  for carrying out large and systematic shipments in the most econoni-  _ical_manner.���^Shipments���of���an-  experiental nature have already  been made, aud it is expected that  important and regular shipments  will follow in the course of a few  weeks, from which date good returns are anticipated. The directors are unable to recommend the  payment of a dividend, but��at the  same time they think that the  shareholders, after careful perusal  of the reports and accounts, will  agree with them in believing thafc  the company's intrinsic position is  better than at any time in its history.           KWANG HSU NOT CAPTURED  Case Of Mistaken Identity.  London, August 27, 4 a. m.���The  latest news from Pekin indicates  that the situation is unchanged.  The imperial city is still invested,  but has nofc yefc been occupied. The  allies, when the last message left,  were still refraining from aggressive  action pending instructions from  their governments.  An attack from 30,000 Boxers was  anticipated and to meet this the  whole American and British forces  will, according to a dispatch to the  Morning Post from Pekin dated  August 18th, be moved to the outer  city wall. The Boxers were reported as coming from the south.  General Dorward, in his report of  the engagement outside Tien-Tsin  on August 19th, when the Americans, British and Japanese signally  defeated a large force of Boxers,  killing over 300, says in a dispatch  dated August 25th:   "The lines of  communication near Tien-Tsin are  now free from danger. The enemy  had been treating the villagers  badly. Several decapitated bodies  were found near their camp. The  villagers are now flocking to Tien-  Tsin at the rate of about a thousand  a day. ��� As there is nofc more than  a month's food supply, there is  every prospect; of a famine shortly.  This declaration that a famine is  imminent, in consequence of the inadequacy of the provisions for the  hordes of refugees at Tien-Tsin,  adds a new element of peril to the  situation."  Shang-Hai advices say that the  report of the capture of emperor  Kwang Hsu by the Japanese was  erroneous. It was a case of mistaken identity.  The Pekin correspondent of the  Daily Telegraph, wiring August  19 th, reasserts that "the empress  dowager fled westward, and adds :  "She has also a guard of 15,000.  The mountainous character of the  country would prevent artillery  firing, and it is believed that she  will not be pursued." The correspondent reports ..everything quiet  on the date of his dispatch, but a  telegram to. the same paper from  Tien-Tsin, dated August * 24th, asserts that 1000 Russians, Germans  and Japs had pushed forward from"  Pekin with ��� the intention, ifc is assumed, of pursuing the empress.  At a conference of, the ministers  and generals, held at Taku Friday,  ifc was decided, according to the  Daily Telegraph, to refer the fate  of the forbidden city to Europe.  A Tien-Tsin dispatch to Berlin,  dated August 23rd, says : "The  Japanese troops are in possession  of the wall around the innermost  part of the forbidden city, but have  not made their way to the imperial  palace owing to the lack of government instruction."  RACE RIOTS IN NEW YORK  Negro Shot A White Man.  New York,' August 26.���A number of incipient race riots between  blacks and whites broke out here  today, the cause being the shooting  on Saturday night of John Bren-  nen, a messenger boy aged 20, by  John Davis, alias Lamplighter, a  negro.  Brennan was one of a crowd of  whites who taunted Davis, and  bullets from the black's revolver  lodged in his stomach and chest.  He is in hospital and likely to die.  The shooting was done at 62nd  street, and becoming noised about,  the rough white element began to  search out negroes. Before daylight this morning James Arnold,  colored, while passing 64th street  and Amsterdam avenue, was attacked by a crowd of whites and  shockingly beaten. "Tie was treated  at a hospital. Shortly afterwards,  about two^^cksawaj^^he^gang,  doIeli==eut7a_similar_ experience to  Alexander Balentine, colored, who  was passing quietly along. In  neither cases were arrests made.  At 9:30 o'clock this morning, a  crowd of whites, confessedly led by  Frank MePyke, 21 years old, went  to a five-story tenement on 60th  street occupied by negroes with the  avowed purpose of cleaning it out.  The had about demolished all the  windows, and incidentally cracked a  head or two, when the police  swooped down on the gang. MePyke and another man were arrested.  At 1:30 o'clock this afternoon  Joseph Doyle, 18 years old, filled  his hat wifcii stones and took his  stand afc 59th street and 11th  avenue. He succeeded in inflicting  scalp wounds on two colored men  before a policeman clubbed and  arrested him.  Officer John J. Clearey placed  William Hopson, a colored man,  under arrest for "being sassy." He  rashly undertook to take his  prisoner to the station though West  Sixtieth street. That street between the west end and Amsterdam  avenue is called "Cuckoo Row," and  here colored people live by the hundreds. The fact that one of their  race was in the hands of a policeman was enough for them, and as a  result a half dozen of them thought  they would release Hopson. Clearey  used his club and then drew his  revolver. By threatening the first  man he held the mob at bay until  other policemen came to his aid.  They arrested George Meyer, also  colored. Clearey said he started  the attempted reficue. Meyer resisted arrest all the way to the  station.    Other arrests were made.  AMERICAN RIGHTS IN CHINA  Will Not Be Sacrificed.  Washington, August 26.���Russia, Germany and Japan have not  declared war upon China either  separately or in concert. This statement is made upon authority of the  highest, character. What those  nations may do within the next  forty-eight hours or withiu the  next fortnight is a question which  lio one in Washington is prepared  to answer.  A brief dispatch from Che-Foo,  conveying a rumor current there  3 thafc Russia,., Germany and Japan  had joined in a declaration of war  upon China, aroused some interested comment among Washington  officials and' among diplomatic representatives of foreign governments resident - here. In neither  official nor diplomatic circles, however, was the rumor taken' seriously.  No information of such action has  reached either the department of  state or the legations of the governments primarily interested. That  fact alone is accepted in official  circles as a sufficient refutation of  the rumor. >  Officials of- the state, war and  navy departments were at their  desks today, bnt-up to the hour of  closing for the day not^a word had  been heard from minister Conger,  general Chaffeeor admiral Remey.  Since the dispatch from consul  Fowler was received late last night  the department of state has received no advices from any sources  iri China except a brief cablegram  from minister. Conger, inquiring  bow he should route his messages.  The text of the dispatch which, it  was explained/was A*ery brief and  purely administrative in character,  w;as not made public. The war department has received no dispatch  from general' Chaffee known to  have come directly from him for  about a week.' Cablegrams signed  "Chaffee" have been received, but  as they .contained .only lists of  casualties'.jit is; assumed they were  sent by some subordinate officer in  general Chaffee's name.  From no official source has the  department learned of-the departure of forty Americans from Pekin  for Tien-Tsin,* as reported in a  special dispatch to a1 Loudon newspaper under date" of August 19fch.  Advices from General Chaffee are  expected hourly, as the military  line between Tien-Tsin and Pekin,  which has been interrupted, presumably is being, or has been repaired.- Imperative instructions  were sent yesterday to the commander of the United States forces  at Tien-Tsin to have the lined restored at once, under the protection  of a cavalry detachment. A  suspicion exists here that the delay  in messages both'from and to Washington occurs between Che-Foo and  Shang-Hai, rather than, Tien-Tsin.  =FwmujQheiFocuitoJ==ShangrHai==the  telegraph line is in control, of fche  Chinese authorities- and it is expected that they are not so prompt  in transmission of messages as they  might be.  Late in the day a dispatch was  received at the Japanese legation  from the foreign office of Japan,  conveying the latest and most  authentic information of the situation in and around Pekin. In a  measure the advices were of a disquieting nature, as they indicated  that the Chinese had rallied their  forces and were preparing for an  attack upon the allies in Pekin.  This would account for tho lack of  advice from general Chaffee. As  made public by minister Takahira,  the dispatcli from the Japanese  foreign office at Tokio is as follows;  " An official telegram, dated Pekin,  August 18th, was received at Tokio  from general Yainaguchi, commander of the Japanese forces, to the  following effect: 'The capital is now  cleared of the enemy. A cavalry  regiment which had been sent to  Wan Shau (where the empress dowager's palace is located) reports that  the imperial family, who had left  Pekin on August 14th, stopped for  a short rest at Wan Sbau Shan and  left for the west under escort of  general Ma and his troops, consisting of aboufc 500 horsemen and  twenty carts. The Japanese forces  occupied the treasury in the afternoon, in which over 2,000,000 taels  in silver and a large quantity of  rice were found.'"  Another dispatch, dated. Taku,  August 23rd, states that as the  Chinese troops and Boxers who had  gathered at Nan Yuen were about  to attack the foreign forces at  Pekin, Japanese and Russian cav  alry were expected to encounter  them on the 20th. The dispatch  further states that Chinese infantry, some 9000 strong wifch  fifteen guns, are advancing northward from Shan Tung to rmake a  rear attack on the allies.  A copy of the dispatch was transmitted to acting sefcretary Adee at  the state department, and by him  was   furnished   to   the   president.  While the news of a  rear attack  upon the comparatively small forces  of the allies was not received with  surprise, it generally was regarded  as serious, as the foreign forces-are  believed to bo abundantly able to  take care of themselves against any  force of Chinese likely to be sent  against them. - In  the absence of  official information from China or  from United States officers iuterest  today centered in the diplomatic  phases of the existing trouble.  The rumor of a declaration of war  by Russia, ifc is explained, may have  grown out of the operations of the  troops of  the czar, in protecting  the southern frontier of his empire,  or it may have arisen from the reported statement of the commander  of the Russian forces at Pekin, that  his government was at war with  China and therefore he must pro;  hibit communication with Chinese!  Neither the operations of Russia on  the frontier nor the prohibition by  a Russian general of communication  with the Chinese would constitute,  it is' said, a"  declaration   of   war.  Even his statement that his government had declared war would not  make it so.'   A declaration of war,  it is pointed out by the best authorities, is a perfectly   distinct   and  obvious proceeding.  The understanding among .Washington officials of Russia's action is  that the empire has declared the  three provinces on its southeastern  frontier in a state of siege.  This is altogether different from  a declaration of war. It corresponds to a declaration of martial  law by Great Britain and to a sus-  -pension of the right of habeas corpus by the United States.  It is pointed out that Russia has  two objects in her present operations in China, the rescue and protection of the foreign legationers  and the protection of her frontier.  The avowed object of the other  powers is simply the rescue and  protection of the legationers aud  other foreign subjects. In carrying  out her second object, Russia has  seized New-Chwang. This was  done to obtain a base of operations,  from which the- frontier could  easily be reached.  Whether in the event of a declaration of war by one or more of  the powers against China, an invitation would be extended to the  United States to retire from China,  as intimated in a dispatch from Che-  Foo, is open to doubt and it is decidedly problematical, it is said,  whether the invitation would be  accepted even if it were tendered.  The United States forces are in  China protecting the personal and  property^rights-of^the^citizens^of  this country, and in addition the  treaty rights of. the United States.  Under the most favored nation  clause this country has certain  rights in Cliina, and it is said on  authority to be the purpose of the  United States to protect and preserve these rights. Iu any event, it  can be said to be no parfc of the  purpose of the United States to  sacrifice any of its rights or privileges in the'.'Chinese empire.  WARREN TALKS OF SPION KOP  Boberts Beady For Advance.  Nkw York, August 26.���Tho  Tribune's 1 a. m. London cable on  the South African situation is as  follows: "Lord Roberts has leffc  Pretoria for the first time in several  weeks and sends a dispatch from  Wonderfontein, 112 miles east of  the capital describing the progress  made by French and Pole-Carew in  pressing back Botha's army. The  good impression produced by this  information yesterday was somewhat damped by a later message  from the commander-in-chief, stating another little mishap had occurred to a part of general Buller's  force, engaged with another of  Botha's commandoes on Thursday.  By some mistake, two companies of  a British infantry regiment advanced far beyond tho firing line  after an engagement was supposed  to haveceased.and were surrounded  by the Boers- losing nearly 100  men killed, wounded aud prisoners.  " Dewet, however, is said to be  retiring across tho mountain passes  to the Orange river colony in a very  crippled condition, and with only a  few followers.  " Sir Charles Warren has just arrived in London from South Africa  and is in a communicative mood.  The gallant general is by no means  inclined to sit down quietly under  the criticisms passed upon him, and  opened his campaign by speaking  freely about Spion Kop, on which  he has already addressed a long and  detailed   explanation   to   the war  office.   He does not admit any responsibility for the occupation of  that position, which, he said, he did  not approve, but on the contrary  suggested   to . general   Buller   an  alternative   plan, which   was   the  one eventually adopted by Buller.  At the same time, general Warren  says, when ordered to take Spion  Kop he did so, and the troops could  have maintained themselves there  till the Boers" had abandoned the  attack had not colonel Thorueycrof b  unaccountably given the order to  retire during the night.   For this  movement   general   Warren    says  that he was himself in no way to  blame.   It is evident there is likely  to be a rather sharp controversy on  this, as well as on several' other  points between . some of the rival  generals and their supporters when  the campaign is finished, or possibly  before."  Cape Town, August 26.���Lord  Roberts arrived yesterday" at Belfast, a few miles west of Machadodorp, where he met sir Redvers  Buller, " general Pole-Carew and  general,French. Everything is now  ready for the advance.  NELSON'S CHEMICAL ENCINE  Will Be Tested Tonight.  The Nelson fire department is  now in possession of the modern  combination hose and chemical wagon ~ ordered . for the brigade.  It arrived on Saturday, and is now  in place at the fire hall. It is a  handsome piece of- workmanship, is  up ."to specifications in,every.respect,  and was delivered:.by: the* makers,  the Fire Extinguisher company of  Chicago, several days within contract time.  The new apparatus is built on the  lines of a hose wagon, the body being only about half - as long as the  outfit formerly used by the department. The wheels are red with  gilt trimmings, the box of perforated steel, finished in royal blue,  and the railings are of polished  brass, making a very attractive  turnout. The wagon weighs  stripped 2700 pounds, which is 100  pounds less than specified, and with  1000 feet of hose, 60 gallons of  chemicals, and 10 firemen, the  aggregate weight will be close to  two tons. This fact will probably  necessitate the purchase by the  city of a new team of horses. The  present pair are too light by several hundred pounds for thejyork..  J_i  ThleWatteFof a new team has already been considered by the city  council.  The striking feature of the new  wagon is the chemical section,  whicli includes a copper cyclinder  beneath the driver's seat and a reel  just behind the seat containing 200  feet of one inch hose, with a small  nozzle. The cylinder is charged  with 00 gallons of bicarbonate of  soda, a simple compound of water  and soda, and a small receptacle  containing a couple of gallons of  sulphuric acid. By turning over  thu cylinder a plug drops from the  small drum containing the acid aud  the combination formed is the best  fire extinguisher known to science.  The energy for discharging the  fluid is contained in the elements  themselves. A chemical engine is  of great service in the early stages  of a fire where the blaze can very  frequently be put out without the  damage which necessarilyc follows  the use of water under heavy  pressure such as ia obtained in  Nelson. The thousand feet of hose  carried'on the apparatus will enable the brigade to use more effectual means where the chemicals  fail to have the desired effect.  The old hose and ladder wagon  will be reconverted by chief Thompson into a hand ladder wagon by  removing the pole, trees, seat and  hose box. Several ladders will be  moved to the new wagon, and the  old apparatus will be utilized in  emergencies.  The new wagon will be tested  this evening between 6 aud 7  o'clock in front of the hall. Chief  Thompson is arranging to have a  pile of tar and oil barrels lighted  for the purpose of determining the  effectiveness of the chemicals.  DEFINITE NEWS IS AWAITED  With Growing Anxiety. 7  New Yohk, August 26.���A LonV-S;  don cable special to this morning's V7  Tribune, filed at 6 a. m., has the ���>_[.'  following on the Chinese situation':?;  .Word has been received from .^  Shang-Hai to the effect that Japan-";,  ese troops have overtaken the em-;;,  press dowager and the Chinese ini- t-^f  perial court eighty miles to ihe 7  southwest of Pekin.

Germany may, ^&|  probably consider herself, entitled " "*  to exact substantial compensation ^  for the murder of baron von .Ket;'^;  teler.    It is pointed out that~ if the^f  kaiser's government required'Kiao7&7  Chau in reparation for tbe murder.^^c  of two missionaries, the whole prov.^pl  ince of Shan Tung might be deemed'^  no more than a price for the-assasV^j��!  sination of her minister.       ���   7 ' -. ;j|f3f  -Russia again, is   in   a  different;,-^!  position from the other powers'j'^jl  since China was the aggressor, or *atj|��|||  least so the 'Russian authorities^^l  maintain on the northern frontierl y"<4\  The Russians have repelled'-' the'_  attack on their territory, have carried   the   war  into    the   enemy's-  country arid may nofc be disposed-,  to relinquish their   conquests.    Ifc ^  would certainly surprise many of  those   aquainted   with   Muscovite  methods,   if  Russia   consented to',  retire, leaving Manchuria intact, especially as in the course of the next  few months she expects   to have  nearly 400,000 men iu Eastern Asia.  Reports of, fighting beyond Tien- -**o-|  Tsin may help to account for the  silence ��f Pekin, though it does not  alleviate the anxiety, with which  more definite news is awaited. The  telegraph wires are still cut aud  the railway is only working a little  way beyond Pei Tsang. The engagement reported yesterday, in  which a large force of Chinese was  Jisp^i^edJbyiAmerican^Brifcishiand^--  Japanese, may or may not have  opened the road. At any rate the  transports with reinforcements are  now rapidly arriving at Taku and  troops are being pushed to the  front as fasfc as they can be landed.  International compliments continue to be freely exchanged by.the  various commanders. General Gas-  elee's last dispatch contained a tribute to the Japanese. Admiral  Seymour has written a letter to  admiral Courrejolles, in which he  speaks in the highest terms of the  conduct of the French contingent  which took part in the naval expeditionary advance, and especially  of their gallantry in seizing the  Tien-Tsin arsenal, and now Englishmen are particularly gratified at  captain McCall's very handsome  testimonial to the .courage and  ability displayed by Seymour himself. The mutual respect and esteem which the troops of the various civilized nations are beginning  to entertain for one another is one  of the most agreeable results of the  Chinese operations."

IF YOU WANT  Pure  Groceries  at Honest  Prices  TRY   THE  g&he f&vibxxm+  j     In the supplementary estimates  : which were put through the legislature on Thursday night a vote of  ! $3^500 was passed to defray the expenses of a mining and water commission.     The circumstance   that  but little opposition was encountered may be accepted as evidence  that assurances were renewed from  the  government   that   the   eight-  * hour law is not to be included in  commissions held for investigation.  The member for Nelson objected to  the vote, but even his objections  were along the line that the vote  was simply a waste of money. TtTe  ventured the prediction that a similar amount, spent in an assay offlce  at Victoria for the purchase of the  gold of returning miners from the  jNorth, would accomplish much more  ^ood.   The government now has its  TnE gold output from the properties around Nelson is beginning  to climb np to respectable proportions.   The Ymir mine easily holds  first place, dropping seventy stamps  for the month of July.   During this  period 4650 tons of ore were crushed,  yielding a gross estimated value of  $239,500,of which sum the officers of  the company say about $25,000 will  represent the company's profit upon  the month's operations.   The Athabasca company comes second with  a crushing of 400 tons, and a cleanup  of   $17,100;    and   the  Granite  third, with a crushing of 104.0 tons,  and a gross return of $9550.   All  three of these properties are yet in  their grst stages of development,  yet their aggregate monthly output already amounts to the very  considerable total of $66,000, and  at the present rate of progress it  will not be long before their annual output will reach the million  mark.  Sir Charles Tupper's talk about  preferential trade with Great  Britain has not taken much root in  the Dominion. This does not indicate that Canadian farmers would  like to secure a.steady market andv  the highest possible price for their  produce.- The difficulty which they  see is in persuading the people of  Britain to consent to pay the higher  prices. They, don't take to Sir  Charles' scheme because theyreal-  of the accounts in connection with  the recent smallpox scare. An  appropriation of $2000 has been  made for tho unsettled accounts,  which, it is thought, will be sufficient to wipe out all obligations not  previously provided for.  Joseph Martin, Vancouver's eminent Liberal, has been engaged to  campaign against the Laurier candidates throughout Manitoba. It is  suggested that the expenses of the  anti-Laurier campaign are met by  the Conservative party.  Rich Lardeau Ore.  Lardeau Eagle.  The    returns   of    the   Triune's  maiden shipment of ore to the Trail  smelter has been given to the Eagle.  There were 380 sacks of ore;1 the  gross weight of which  was  42,180  pounds,   the   net     weight   39,695  pounds, or 405 pounds less  than 20  tons.    The ore sized up in these  proportions:   Gold, $237.58 ; silver...  $4,9S5.95;    lead,    $589.90.       Total  gross  value,  $5,813.45,' or,  figuring  on a 20-ton basis, $290.07 to the ton.  Transportation aud smelter charges  amounted to  $436.65,  leaving  the  net proceeds $5,376.84, or on  a 20-  ton basis, $20S.S4  to the ton.    It  costs $10 a ton to pack it to Ten-  Mile, $15 to haul it to the Lauding  and $22 a ton for freight, transportation and smelter charges to the  C. P. R.     The   shipment   was accompanied by A. Ferguson, one of  the owners, and V. Lade, one of the  lessees.    They got $20 an ounce for  their gold and 61  cents per ounce  for, their silver.     It is safe to say  that every ton of Triune ore shipped  this season will net at least $275.00  a ton, after paying $47  a ton for  freight and treatment. The Triune,  it must   be   remembered,   is   only  about ten Sveek's old, and the lessees  have over 200   tons   blocked   out  after having  driven less than 125  feet of tunnel.  _ &&&&&&_&&&^&&&_i:&&i_U&&_��&G_:__US^&  Aci^.^'^'^^'^'^'^'^'^'t^'^'^'^'^'^ ���^^^���*?-.t?,*��v*v'^'.'?-  Uf  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  ffl  ffl  w,  ���i-i-**:  ^���^���^���_*>-^-4��-a'a,-a'-^,^,^>,^'>>,^'^'^-'^B',-s-*^>,-s��*�����*^'-Sfe*>��- l  0'0i9^9:9:9^9:9-0i9^9:9^9;9;9i9^9i9i9i9^9^9^9r9:^Di  IRVINE  CO.

CHINESE CUSTOMS.  Vyt is a remarkable thing about  rckin that, in a city laid out on an  Jnormous plan, with large avenues,  jigh walls, beautified by pretty pa-  [odas, elegant temples, large yameris  >ntaining the imperial palaces aud  jicred grounds, so little is done  Ipward the comfort of pedestrians  Tud of people riding on mules,  Jiorses, camels or vehicles. The  R'joroughfares are never repaired!  lo that the streets are Hooded soon  titer it begins to rain. You can-  lot walk in the streets at such  flines. The only means of travel  Ihen is the peculiar spriugless Pe-  ljin cart, by which one gets full of  laud and filbh. The mule placed  lief ore the cart has to wade through  lhe morass and the wheels sink  Keep into the mud. With the exception of open canals, traversing  [jities, the Chinese do not drain  ifheir streets.  The   laws and customs allow a  ihinaman to have as many wives  \. he can support, but only the first  J/ife is regarded as the legitimate  fiother of   the household.   She is  le ruler of all the children, who  idll mourn for her a hundred days.  H^he husband, who can remarry as  ��ffcen as he likes, does not show any  lign of mourning for his  wife  to-  ihe outer world, but a woman who  marries again after her husband's  Iceath is not considered respectable.  Should she, on the other hand, corn-  |uit suicide on her husband's grave,  |hen a pailau, which is an ornamental gateway or arch, will  be  greeted as a sign of transcendent  loyalty and virtue.   But the great J  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  majority of Chinese do not adhere  to polygamy. They have a proverb  which says that where one woman  reigns there is peace; two women  -under the same roof signifies a.  fight, and three women means intrigue and disorder.  A most pjcuJLakJjhing^about^the^  Chinese is that thay do not know  the value of time. We have had  some convincing proof of this in the  last few weeks. ��� The Chinese were,  in no hurry to let us know that the  diplomats and foreign residents of  Pekin were alive. The manner in  which the Chinese ignore time may  also be noticed in another way. If  a Chinaman announces his visit for  official or other business, you may  be sure that he will arrive from an  hour to half a day later, sometimes  even on the next day, without  deeming it necessary to apologize  for the delay. When the caller  finally does arrive, there is generally a long exchange of polite phrases  and words. Afterward, you drink  tea and smoke pipes. During all  this time you talk of politics and  the weather, and possibly, just be-  fore-the caller intends to leave, he  will casually bring up the purpose  of his visit.-  A curious sight is to see wealthy  Chinamen traveling on board of a  coast or ocean steamer. They all  retire to their cabins to. remain  there during the voyage. Here they  will eat, drink, amuse themselves  and smoke opium, with the pungent  odor of which the neighboring  cabins are soon unpleasantly filled.  On a voyage from Ningpo to Shang-  Hai I once visited a Chinese steerage; there were over 700 men and  women crouched on the floor, smok--  ing their peculiar water and opium  pipes, the smoke of which filled the  whole ship. It is always a great  curiosity for a stranger to enter  one of the public places, mostly  Chinese tea-houses, where a kind of  sofa arrangement for opium smokers may   be  found.

RICHELIEU TO SHIP STEADILY  When Road is Completed.  Henry Roy, manager of the London Consolidated and Richelieu  mines, on Coffee creek, was in the  city yesterday. He leaves this  morning foi- the properties with  David McBeath, who is taking' an  outfit and gang of men up to commence work on the wagon road.  The road extends from the mouth  of the creek to a point nine and a  half miles up, where a tramway  from the mine will end. It is the  intention of the company to ship  steadily after the road is completed.  The Richelieu property has been  worked constantly for a little over  three years and development has  reached an advanced stage. Mr.  Roy states that the company could  work 500 men for a.couple of years  more without exhausting the ore  already blocked out. In'the course  of development a large amount of  ore has been taken out and is now  on the dump ready to be shipped  when the road is completed. The  veins on the properties are not  wide, but the values ai*e unusually  high.  The contract for the building of  the road calls for its completion by  October 15th, and to accomplish  this it is probable that 150 men  will be employed. The company  had intended to build the road several months earlier but were delayed by waiting for the government subsidy. Had the road gone  through earlier a concentrator  would have been erected at the  property, but this has been necessarily delayed until next year. By  tramming the ore from the mine to  the road instead of running the  road through to the mine, the company's teams will be able to make a  round trip daily.  From 50 to 100 tons of ore will be  shipped daily from the properties,  and the staff will be increased to  insure a steady supply.  W. REINHARD, M. D.  General Practice.

The Nelson Intermediate ball  team defeated the Rossland Stars  in a, closely contested game yesterday afternoon, the score being 9 to  7. A couple of hundred spectators  witnessed the match and were delighted with the quality of baseball  provided almost throughout the  game. In two innings the play  was loose and practically all the  scoring was done in these innings.  Eliminating this feature the game  was as good an exhibition as has  been seen on a Nelson diamond.  The home team played snappy ball,  and with 7a couple of exceptions  fielded and threw splendidly!  Chambers -was strong in the box  and kept a level head at critical  points. The outfield had: but little  work. Nelson was stronger at  every point, and . although the advantage, was islight the game was  decided on the merits of the teams.  Most of the Nelson Intermediates  promise to become clever players  and will be eligible for the senior  team in a few seasons. The Rossland team were heavier than the  home playersand played good ball,  but manifested a disposition to lose  their heads. "Thescore was:  NELSON INTEKM KDIATE3.  Alt.   It.   II. SH. TO. A.
