ACCEPTABILITY OF EARL Ll
' Remains Unsettled.
Washington,   August   30.—The
Uuited States government, having
acted upon the Russian proposition
as to the withdrawal of troops from
Pekin, is now quietly Avaiting for
responses to the notes which have
been sent to its various representatives abroad for presentation to the
powers.     Judging by the rate of
progress made in the pending negotiations, several days, and perhaps a week, may pass before all
the replies are received.   According to their formal expressions all
of the powers are agreed upon this
ono point.    They do not desire to
, cuter   upon   a   formal   war   with
China.   The United States government is trying to bring about this
result.    For the moment, it finds
itself side   by   side with Russia,
whose earnestness cannot be questioned  at this time.     The object
now in  view is to  bring about a
situation in  Chiua that will admit
of the beginning   of   negotiations
looking to the  re-establishment of
order and the cessation  of hostilities, the assurance of protection to
foreign life aud   property.    After
that  the  negotiations  may touch
upon other questions  that  remain
to be settled.
It is with this object that Russia
has suggested the withdrawal from
Pekiu, in order that the Chinese
government may resume the reins
of power, for the Chinese are not
apt to yield fealty to a government
now in possession of its own capital.
The United States government
has been championing the cause of
Li Hung Chang from precisely
similar motives, namely, a desire to
speedily rehabilitate the Chinese
government in order that it may
carry out its expressed desire to
settle the difficulties whicli have
arisen.- This has been the object of
the negotiations of the -last few
days, and the Russian note to the
Uuited States' response was but
part of the general plan
responding
more progressive of the Chinese
officials. Tt was also stated that
the conditions seemed to be improving.
Orders have been issued directing tho return of the United States
troops from China, or their removal
from Pekin to Tien-Tsin, or to any
point on the sea coast. It is still
the policy of tho United States, as
expressed iu the note of July 3rd,
to secure order in China.
Jn
uoifi* as it did,
to the Russian
-the United 'States
government availed itself of the
opportunity of directly inviting the
remaining powers to express their
desires in the matter of a settlement, or rather, to indicate how, in
their judgement, peace negotiations
could be thus instituted. This note
is calculated- to secure a full disclosure of the intentions of the
powers if the inquiry is met by
them in the frank spirit in which it
was conceived by the United States
government. The difficulty apprehended now in reaching a settlement lies in the intentional delay
on the part of any power which is
concealing its true purpose and
does not desire to avoid a formal
war. The state department is already embarrassed by delay's experienced in securing responses toits
note challenging the production of
_objections_to_Li_Huug_Chang—It-
appears that much confusion exists
at Taku as to what actually had
been decided upon respecting the
treatment of Li Hung Chang, should
he arrive at that place en route to
Pekin. The report of the naval
commanders to their governments
rather increased the confusion in an
international sense. Admiral
Remey found it difficult to sifb out
the facts at Taku. Now the state
department finds the replies so far
received from Europe vague and
unsatisfactory, for the reason that
the various governments appear to
have different understandings as to
the exact conditions at Taku.     '
It could not be learned from whom
the replies were received and which
were missing, but it can be stated
that at present the question as to
the acceptability of earl Li as an
envoy and liis freedom from interference, remains unsettled. The
advance of the Russian proposition
may reduce the force of the other
questions, for which the return of
the Chinese government to Pekin,
the smaller matters of the personalities of the envoys and the
sufficiency of credentials could be
speedily adjusted. Altogether, the
opinion among the members of the
administration here is that the
Russian government has made
directly for an earlier settlement of
the Chinese difficulties than seemed
possible a few days ago.
Secretary Root, in speaking today
of the statement, in the Conger dispatch saying that prince Chang was
coming to Pekin, said that it was a
favorable indication. Prince Chang
has   been  known   as   friendly  to
foreigners and has been among the
OCCUPATION IS NECESSARY
Russians in New-Chwang.
Washington, August 30.—If
there should appear in Pekin members of the Chinese government,
who were duly authorized to organize a government and could do
so with the prospects of restoring
order throughout the empire, it
would be considered as a movement
on the part of the Chinese government towards carrying out tho demands of the United States. The
United States government might
then consider the advisability of
withdrawing troops from the capital, especially if this action would
tend toward the pacification of
China.
The action of the Japanese government in withdrawing from"
Amoy the troops or marines which
have aroused the suspicion of the
European powers has done'much to
clarify the situation. By this dis-.
claimer of a purpose to seize Chinese territory, Japan has avoided
entering a wedge which might
result in the splitting up of the
Chinese empire among the powers.
It now remains for Russia to take
similar action as to the Russian
forces "at New-Chwang, and from
the private intimations that have
been conveyed to the state department Russia has assured the United
States that this occupation has
been purely temporary. It was
necessary, it was represented, in
view of tho interruption ' of, the
Russian railroad in the upper peninsula to seize upon New-Chwang
to supply by sea the Russian forces
to the-northward-but -within their,
own territory.   -
The state department today received a telegram from its special
commissioner to investigate and report upon conditions in China, W.
W. Rockhill, dated at Shang-Hai
today, saying he was about to leave
for Pekin.
Short messages descriptive of the
situations in Amoy and Shang-Hai
were received from the consuls at
those points, but were devoid of
interest and were not published.
St. Petersburg, August 30.—
Dispatches received here under today's date report that general
Rehnenkampf's flying column is
pushing rapidly towards Tsi Tsi
Hai. The telegraph is working-
from Agiuni to Mergen. The Russian losses during the advance were
three officers and twenty-two men
killed-and-five-officers-and_seventyr
nine men wounded.
Hong Kong, August 30.—The
British cruiser Isis landed sixty
marines at the British possessions
at Amoy today. The transport
Formosa will proceed to Taku,
though general Gaselee, commander
of the British forces at Pekin, wires
that he does not require any more
troops except cavalry.
Paid and Discharged.
Norfolk, Virginia, August 30.—
Acting British consul R. F. Baldwin today investigated charges of
cruelty against captain A. Ham- J
mond of the British government
chartered collier Channiug made by
sixteen members of the ship's crew
who desired their discharges. The
Channing is now at Lambeit's point,
loading for the British government
upwards of 4000 tons of coal which
is destined for South Africa. Attorney P. J. Morris, representing
the sixteen men who desired their
discharge from the Channing,
threatened to libel the vessel if
Hammond would not come to terms,
and the sixteen men were paid off
and discharged.
To Claim a Fortune.
San Francisco, August 29.—Em-
mett Burdock of Honolulu with his
father, John Burdock of Sacramento, California, has arrived on
the steamer China, en route to England, to claim an inheritance of $1,
700,000 which they have been advised is awaiting them there.
The fortune consists of a landed
estate near London and personal
property, being the Diester family
estate.
ATTEMPT TO BURN A HOTEL
Incendiarism at Trail.
A special   from Trail says:
attempt  was  made to burn
An
was made to ourn the
Crown Point hotel at an early hour
yesterday morning, and the destruction of the property, as well as loss
of life was avoided by the fortunate awakening of Henry Boss,
who extinguished the flames and
gave the alarm.
It was about 4.30 a. m. when Mr.
Boss, who occupied one of the rooms
off the back parlor, was awakened
by   the   light    and   smoke.     He
quickly opened his door and found
that somebody had made a deliberate attempt to burn the building.
There, in the centre of the floor, he
found a pile of shavings which had
been made by whittling a piece of
wood.   They were in a blaze.   To
make the work more perfect one of
the      portieres       between      the
parlors   had    been    set   on   fire.
Mr. Boss pulled this down and extinguished the flames, and with the
other he smothered the. fire which
was burning on the floor.     In this
work   he   was   assisted   by P.' T.
Sharp, an alderman of Greenwood,
who was a guest at the house.   Mr.
and Mrs. Peterson, and the other
occupants of the hotel were aroused.
Thus far no clue to the incendiary
has been obtained.     The entrance
door of the hotel was   opened in
order to assist the incendiary   to
make a speedy escape.   The Crown
Point hotel is the oldest in Trail,
and is valued at about $10,000. The
authorities are now working on the
case. ° *    -
CORBETT THEJEST MAN
A Clever Exhibition.
New York, August 30.—The long
promised and long looked for meeting between James J. Corbett and
Charles McCoy took place under the
auspices of the Twentieth Century
Club at Madison Square Garden tonight and finished in five rounds.
Corbett proved to be the better
man. It was the cleverest exhibition ever witnessed in the ring.
Up to the moment that the men
stepped into the squared circle
opinions" as to their respective
ability were widely divergent. Many
claimed, and rightly too, that Corbett would prove to be the stronger
as well as the cleverer, and it was
through his . superior fighting and
heavy slugging that he put McCoy
down and out.
McCoy's- friends all along have
claimed that he- was equally as
clever with his hands and feet as
the former champion, and in addition to this they said the Kid
could hit harder than Corbett.
Tonight, however, while McCoy
landed some stinging blows he did
not_cut~Corbett's~~skin, nor did he
land a single heavy right hand
blow during, the contest. On the
other hand, Corbett, when he
dropped science and began to slug,
landed hard rights and lefts, which
simply took McCoy's guards away.
And Avhen Corbett found a vulnerable spot in the region of McCoy's
heart, two lefts, divided by a right,
ended the battle. Both men entered
the ring in superb condition.
In the opening round McCoy
showed up to much better advantage than Corbett. McCoy seemed
very confident though careful while
Corbett was nervous.
Presbytery of Kootenav.
Greenwood, August 30.—The
fourth half-yearly meeting of the
Kootenay presbytery was opened
at Greenwood on Wednesday, August 29th. Previous meetings were
held at Rossland, Nelson and Kaslo
successively. There are 21" ordained
ministers on the roll and of these

clerk. The whole of the day was
occupied in business. At the close
of the afternoon session the ladies
of the Greenwood Presbyterian
church entertained the ministers at
tea. The evening session was congregational, the business relating
strictly to matters of especial interest ta the Greenwood church. It
is expected that tho presbytery will
conclude its business today. This
evening Rev. H. Mackay of Eholt
will be iicensed and ordained at a
public service, and tomorrow the
ministers will leave for their res-
pective-fioines.
HOUSE TO PROROGUE TODAY
Doings of the Legislature.
Victoria, August 30.—[Special to
The Tribune].—Prorogation has
been fixed for tomorrow at 3 o'clock,
and a few informal invitations are
out, as the decision ht>,s been
hurriedly arrived at by the government. The house has been sitting
since ten this morning, and desperate efforts are being made to wind
up things by a late sitting tonight,
but unless more rapid progress is
made a good deal" of business will
have to be slaughtered. It was
wearisome Japanese and Chinese
talk most of the afternoon.
Helmcken's bill -to provide an
educational test for workmen employed on construction of works
authorized under a provincial charter was enlarged to make it apply
to workmen employed on operating
the works after construction, and
in this form it passed. Tatlow of
Vancouver introduced his bill which
seeks to keep, orientals out of the
province„altogether by applying an
educational test" as reported in
previous despatches. In effect the
bill gives power to the government
to apply an educational test to any
one coming • to the province, and
really might be applied to illiterate
whites. A section was adopted in
committee making it inapplicable to - immigration already
dealt with by Dominion statute.
This was'done so as to avoid conflicting with the sections of the
British North America -Act, which
provides that the provinces can
only deal with immigration that is
not already legislated upon by the
Dominion. As the Dominion has
fixed an entrance tax on Chinese of
$100, Tatlow's bill, can only apply
to Japanese as far as orientals are
concerned, and so is in great part
nullified. In any case it is likely to
be disallowed, even if the lieutenant-governor assents to it, about
which there is some doubt. However, the bill passed amid a good
deal of applause. Many more petitions were presented from the
Kootenays against having a mining
commission.
■Houston's bill, amending the
Water Clauses Act, placing
cities onthe same footing as^
"power companies in acquiring
water rights, was read a third
time today and passed. The bill
amending the Municipal" Clauses
Act, which raises peddlers' licenses
to $150 and transient traders to
$500 for every six months will pass
tonight. So far the member for
Nelson has got everything he has
fought for. City treasurer Wasson
and treasurer MeLeod of the Stewart Construction Company, are doing Victoria. The house will be
prorogued tomorrow.
Will Withdraw Marines.
Washington, August 30.—A telegram has been received from the
Japanese legation to the effect that
having been informed by the Japanese consul at Amoy that he has
been assured by the Chinese authorities of their readiness to afford
full protection to the foreign residents and the property at that port,
the Japanese government have already ordered the withdrawal of
the marines detailed to protect the
Japanese property in the native
town, and are prepared to withdraw
the rest of the, marines as soon as
they are satisfied that the peace
and order of the port are assured.
Worse Than Big Guns.
Mafeking, British South Africa,
August 30.—A cyclone visited Mafeking last eveniug and did more
damage than the seven months'
bombardment. It blew down or
unroofed buildings and levelled the
military camp hospital, causing
much suffering among the sick and
wounded. One person was killed
and two injured, and there were
many narrow escapes.
CRIEVANCES_OF_ TRAINMEN
On the Pacific Division.
The    Nelson   members   of    the
United  Brotherhood   of   Railroad
Trainmen  are anxiously awaiting
the result of the visit of their grand
lodge   officers   to Montreal where
tliey are placing the men's grievances before ihe general manager.
The trainmen on the Pacific division
apparently have a most reasonable
ground for redress, particularly in
regard to their wage scale.   A C.
P. R. brakeman running out of Nelson is about the most poorly paid
man in the community.   His daily
wage for a standard day of ten
hours   or   a hundred mile run is
something   under   $2.25  per   day,
while the conductor who shoulders
the responsibility of the train draws
about $3.25 for the same day's work.
When the trainmen of this section brought the matter to the attention of R. Marpole, before the
situation assumed its present aspect,
a statement was submitted showing the wages paid to skilled labor
of every description in Nelson and
district.     Mr. Marpole declined, it
is stated, to  consider  the subject
from    this    standpoint,   advising
the   men   who   did not like  the
wages to quit the company's service
and go into one of the trades which
were,   according   to   the schedule,
better paid.
The Brotherhood has other grievances but none are of such importance to the crews running out of
Nelson as the. wages question.
The men believe, that the force of
their claim for increased pay will
impress itself upon the management
without extreme measures being
necessary.	
DIRECT CABLE TO GERMANY
'  Felicitations Exchanged.
New York, August 30.—Direct
telegraphic communication between
the United States and Germany
was opened today through the new
German cable in' conjunction with
the Commercial Cable Company's
system from New York to Fayal
and thence to Emden, Germany.
The following felicitous messages
weie exchanged between the German emperor and president McKiniey :
" To the president of the United
States, Washington. At today's
opening of the new cable, which
brings Germany in closest telegraphic connection with the United
States, I am glad to express to your
excellency my satisfaction at the
accomplishment of this significant
work of peace. I know your excellency will agree with me in the
wish and hope that the cable connection may promote, the general
prosperity and contribute to the
maintaining and cementing of
friendly relations between the two
nations.    (Signed) Wilhelm II."
President McKiniey responded as
follows: "Washington, August 30.
—To his royal _ma.jesty, TWilhelm
II, Berlin. I read with great satisfaction your majesty's message of
felicitation upon the opening of the
cable completing the chain of closer
communication between this country and the German empire. In
this age of progress every tie that
brings nations nearer in their commercial relations and friendly intercourse works for their common
good and cannot fail to strengthen
their cordiality and promote their
mutual advancement in the paths
of peace. (Signed,) William McKiniey." .	
Rich Gravel Struck.
Victoria, August 30.—News
comes from Dawson that rich
gravel has been found ou Dornix
creek in the Stewart River country.
Men are taking out $1.50 to the
pan.	
Fought to a Draw.
Buffalo, August 30.-^Frank
Erne of Buffalo and Tom Couhig of
Dundirk fought six rounds to a
draw at the Olympic Club here tonight. The men met at catch
weights. In the first round Erne's
lightning left hand jabs brought the
blood from Couhig's nose and
mouth, but the latter landed a
couple of fair lefts on Erne's face.
In the next two rounds Erne landed
several light lefts on the face and
body, Couhig putting a hard left on
Erne's face at the close of the third
round. The fourth round saw a
terrible mixup, Erne sending a
fusilade of stiff rights and lefts to
face and jaAV, Couhig countering
hard on nose and mouth. Couhig was
groggy at the close of the round,
while Erne seemed very tired. The
fifth round was tame, Erne con
tenting himself ,with blocking
Couhig's leads and putting light
lefts on the nose. In the sixth and
last round Couhig landed a hard
right on the head, Erne coming
back with left jabs on the face.
The round closed with both men
strong and willing. Referee Mc-
Bride's decision was received with
disfavor, the opinion being general
that Erne should have been declared the winner.
CELEBRATION J PROGRESS
In the Chinese Capital.
Pekin, August 14.—By post via
Tien-Tsin.—A medal will be struck
commemorating the siege of Pekin.
It will bear the motto: "Men, not
walls, make a city." In the grounds
of the British legation, where a
handful of men withstood the millions of the Chinese capital for 56
days, a memorable celebration is in
progress tonight in vindication of
that principle.
Missionaries assembled about tbe
bell tower are singing the doxology.
Rockets are blazing. Soldiers and
others are fraternizing. The women
are applauding the sound. of the
cannon that are smashing the
yellow roofs of the forbidden city.
The tired Sikhs are planting their
tents on the lawn and the American
and Russian contingents are, lighting camp fires along the stretch of
turf/extending beyond the Tartar
wall.
Through the ruins of the foreign
settlement an eager cosmopolitan
crowd is jostling, Indians, Cossacks,
legation ladies, diplomatists, and
Frenchmen from Saigon, who kept
discreetly to the rear while fighting
was in progress, but came conspicuously to the front when looting
began. Only the Japanese ;-who
have earned first place are absent.
The resident foreigners welcome
the luxury of walking about and
immunity- from bullets.
UNITED-STATES AMD RUSSIA
Would Dictate to the Powers.
London, August 30.—The  Russian-American " surprise," as it is'
called, is the chief feature of the4
morning   papers.    While Russia's
part in the proposal is regarded'
with considerable suspicion, it is'
generally recognized that the flight
of the empress dowager and the'
emperor renders- the situation e_-„ ■
tremely difficult, and therefore that..
it   might   be   wise   to   adopt the 7
Russo-American program   as ' the:-'

For the Lipton Cup.
New York, .August 30.—On
August 28th the New* York Yacht
Club sent to sir' ThomasTLipton an
invitation, to : be; the guest-of. the
club at the races for the-Lipton cup
on September 13th. The following
is a copy of the invitation and sir
Thomas Lipton's reply, which was
received . today.- " New York,
August 28.—To sir Thomas Lipton,
Finsbury Park, London, England.
As announced by the commodore on
August Oth, races will take place at
Sandy Hook on September 13th for

"Queenstown, August 30.—Oddie,
New York Yacht Club, New York.
A thousand thanks. I greatly appreciate your kind invitation.
Nothing would give' me greatei
pleasure, but I cannot possibly be
over for the 13th. I am visiting

Yacht Club, Queenstown, Ireland."
A Style of Their Own.
Toronto, August 30.—The showing of the New Westminster lacrosse
team who defeated the Shamrocks
yesterday with a score of 0 to 2, on
their present trip to Eastern
Canada, has surprised the natives
of Montreal and other Eastern cities
who have seen their senior lacrosse
teams mowed down by the wanderers from the Wild and Woolly
West. The New Westminsters have
a style which is peculiarly their
own, and which is remarkably effective and seems to give good ground
for their claim of having the
best twelve in the world. Toronto will be in good shape for the
game in Rosedale with the tourists
on Monday next.
An Elaborate Ceremony.
Berlin, August 30.—The flag
consecration today was a much
more elaborate ceremony than
usual, owing to the fact that the
flags for the China regiments were
included. 	
Last Fight Under Horton Law.
•New York, Angust 30.—The last

take place at the Broadway Athletic Club tomorrow night. Dal
Hawkins of California and Joe

Hung Chang as a plenipotentiary.
The powers should refuse to accept
any -intermediary or to; evacuate
Pekin, which would only be interpreted as a sign of weakness."-     .  ,-
The   Standard   says: "It   is riot
easy to overrate the importance.of
the decision of the United States.."
The desire of both Washington and*'
St.   Petersburg to withdraw fromi
Pekin is very intelligible.   . Public ;
opinion in   America is adverse -to,;
foreign complications, while Russia
has discovered that conditions..are '
not propitious for' her schemes'of 7
conquest." ■ ■ . -...vr*
The Daily News says:    "ConsidA*
ering   that   the   empress dowager-:-:
openly   discouraged   the-'1 attacksx
upon the foreigners, the suggestibrih^'lj^
that ,the imperial personages ^kre}^'"
about to return to Pekin- is rather-
startling; ."and  the "latest develop- \
ment of Russian diplomacy requires
explanation at least." -
jg-The   Daily Telegraph observes:
"Acceptance of Li Hung Chang is
almost the only thing the allies can
do.     His  intervention   would un- .
doubted ly make for peace.     It. is..
pretty clear that unless statesmen
can   do something to   relieve" the *
tension   of   affairs, so- far as  the'
military   can deal with them we
have arrived at a deadlock."
The   Times makes no comment-
upon the Russian proposals.
According to the Pekin corres-J
pondent of the Daily Mail, wiring
on August 15th, wheu the tsung li
yamen asked an interview with the '
besieged, four of the ministers
offered, and seven favored complying with the request. The Chinese
ministers did not come.  _
During"tlie~"siege every scrap of
metal, including candlesticks and
ornaments, was converted into
ammunition. A gun was made,
from a fire extinguisher. Ten
thousand sand bags ware made of
silk brocade material, valued at $5
per bag.
Sir Claude MacDonald, the British
minister, sent a message recommending the water gate for the
entry of the troops.
From Che-Foo it is announced
that tho telegraph offices are overwhelmed with work and that a
number of dispatches are awaiting
transmission.

Solitary Confinement'
Nkw York, August 30.—A cablegram from Milan says the sentence
passed upon Bresci, the assassin of
king Humbert, means one year of
solitary confinement in a secret cell
six feet long by three wide, dark,
with a plank for a bed, and bread
and water once every twenty-four
hours as a diet. Absolute silence is
enforced rigorously. If he breaks
the rule he is placed in a straight
jacket, in irons or in the "straight
bed." The year must be spent also
without work, books, writing materials or tobacco. Few prisoners
complete the year ; they either go
mad or die. Should Bresci live and
retain his reason he will be placed
at work in the prison.
.Russia Makes Suggestions.
London, August 30.—An official
of the foreign office informed a representative of the Associated Press
today that Russia had'made certain
suggestions relative to China, but
that they were unwilling to consent
to their publication at present.

McLaehlan  Brothers  Successors to the Vancouver Hardwaro Company.  M  ceived in a small gully beside one  of the trestles what appeared to  him in the uncertain light to be a  large dog. On closer inspection,  however, the illusion regarding the  dog was dispelled, and in order to  discover the nature of the animal  the rancher picked up a stone and  threw it at him. This caused him  to move somewhat faster underneath the trestle in the direction of  the water. Just as he was directly  below the trestle the rancher, in  order to further investigate his  nature, lit a match and dropped it  on Bruin (for such he proved to be).  Upon this Bruin, somewhat nettled  at the treatment meted out to him,  and probably inhaling the odor of  theprovisions,began rapidly ascending the hill in the rancher's  direction, whereupon the prospective victim, deeming discretion the  better part of valor, and not being  anxious for a closer acquaintance,  rapidly pursued his way in the  direction of his ranch.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  INCORPORATED 1670.  IF YOU WANT  Pure  Groceries  at Honest  Prices  TRY   THE  s  Bay  The arbitration which is going  on at present between the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and  the Beer brothers, with respect to  the ��� value   of   the   right-of-way  through the Perry pre-emption, has  created considerable interest.    The  -  land over which the dispute as to  value has arisen comprises some six  and a half  acres, but there is a  very wide difference between what  the railway company is willing to j  pay for it and what the owners are  willing   to   accept.     The railway  company's offer is $25 per acre, or  $162.50 in all, but the owners are  holding   out   for   something   over  $2000. The work of the arbitrators  is to fix a valuation somewhere between these  two  figures.    Aside  -from counsel fees, witness fees and  other expenses, the arbitration costs  just fifteen dollars an hour, so that  it is not improbable, in view of the  time consumed, that the arbitrators  will get more out of the arbitration  than anyone else.  During the present session of  the legislature the usual number of  resolutions have been passed reciting the opinion of the members  ��� upon different questions. In an-  .other week they will all be forgotten, but when the next session  comes round* the members will in  all seriousness again take*up the  same questions and resolve accordingly: This has been going on in  British Columbia since Confederation, but the legislators never.tire  of it; and though barren in results  the resolutions help many of the  members out with their constituents. Resolutions, by the way, are  about the only clean cut pronouncements that emanate from the legislature. They are framed merely  to be read, and the government does not as a rule consider it  necessary to emasculate theni.  In'the bill which is now, before  the legislature to amend the Municipal Act some very material amend-  : ments are proposed. The mercantile class seems to have received due  consideration in the amendments to  the license clauses. The maximum  tax upon hawkers and peddlers in  the amending bill is placed at - $150  for every six months, and the tax  upon transient traders who are  knoAvn as slaughter salesmen can  be put at $500 for every six months.  If these provisions become law the  merchants of Nelson will not have  much cause for complaint- under  this head.  At the Recorder's Offlce.

For some days the attitude of  the people had been becoming more  and more unfriendly, and when we  . reached Hsintien Mr. Jamieson said  lie would leave us and go on ten  miles further to the large country  town, to see the official in person,  and if possible get a larger escort.  The gentlemen gave their consent  to this as being the best thing to  do. We did not feel very easy, but  there was no other way. So here  we were; a party of foreigners,  absolutely at the mercy of an anti-  foreign city. As soon as I could  get the children settled I threw  myself down beside baby and was  asleep in a moment and knew nothing of any trouble till about  midnight, when I was aroused by  Mr. Goforth telling me to get up,  as they expected the inn to be  attacked. I found none had gone  to rest, and that the carts were  arranged so as to form a barrier at  the gateway. All night we waited  anxiously. In the meantime a  messenger had been sent on to Mr.  Jamieson, telling him of the situation and asking for military protection; also one to the official. No  attack was made that night, but  something about the manner of the  Chinese aroused our suspicions that  all was not right.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  In the early morning our messengers returned, saying the official'refused protection. Mr. Jauieison had  utterly failed, and the attitude of  the people at the eity was such  that he and party, though arriving  at 11 p. m., left at 3 a.m. the next  "moi'ning'. WeTcannotrblaine them  forgoing ahead, for their intention  originally was to have waited for  us, but cisciimstances forced them  ahead, otherwise they might themselves have been destroyed.  To return to ourselves. Here we  were well on in the morning, our  carters terrified so that they refused to go. Finally they could  only be persuaded to venture out  by our gentlemen promising to pay  for every loss either to horses, carts,  goods; etc. Before we got into our  carts we knelt together and each of  the gentlemen in turn committed  us into pur Father's keeping.  As we issued from the gate there  was a strange silence, the roads on  either side were densely packed, and  as we reached the gate of the city  we could see even the wall of the  city black with people. Yet no  sigu of disturbance. I had just  remarked to Mr. G. how well we  were getting on when we passed the  city gate. Here, too, dense crowds  were gathered. Ahead of us, separated from the rest, was a band of  about six hundred men. When Mr.  G. saw them, and that they had  swords, guns, stones, bricks, etc., he  said in a very low voice, "Rose,  there is trouble ahead." He had  scarcely uttered the words when  we had got just opposite, and as  quick as a clap of thunder a tremendous shower of stones and  bricks poured down upon us. I  begged Mr. G. not to get off the  nart, but he jumped down ; by this  time hundreds of armed men were  upon us. I heard Mr. G. calling  again and again," Take everything,  but don't strike."

Again and again I heard him calling, pleading for the lives of all.

But the villains  dragged them out, throwing them  on the ground. One man aimed  with a sword at me from the back  of the cart, but could not reach me.  His face had the most intense hatred  in it. While hesitating to know  what to do, Mr. Goforth came up  to the cart, almost sinking from loss  of blood. He told me to get down,  which I did. He took the baby,  Helen and Paul clinging to him. I  tried to get on my shoes, but they  were snatched from me. Mr. Go-  forth said we had better try and  get away, as he felt he was almost  done for. ���  As we tried to move off a number  began following us.

As we tried to get  off across the fields we could see  the others still struggling with the  wretches. Again and again Mr.  Goforth would have gone back, but  I saw he was almost sinking, and  gradually dragged him along. We  were stopped several times, but  everyone seemed too eager to see  what was going on with the others  to take much interest in us, and  God enabled us to'" escape out of  their hands.

The Australian Comedy Company  scored another success at the opera  house last night in "Caste."' The  vehicle differed radically from the  bill of the previous evening, and  the company demonstrated that  they were fully as capable in  comedy-drama as in the heavier  class of work called for, by plays of  the "Sapho" class. Mr. Cochrane  took the leading role, in which he  was natural and manly to a degree whicli won warm applause.  Next to Mr. Cochrane the honors  fell to Mr. Townsend who essayed  a difficult role and achieved a decided hit. In opening his part  "aroused a feeling of antagonism,  but in the finale he won all hearts  and left the stage amid hearty applause. Herbert Jones also scored  a hit in a comedy part and Mr.  Ward interpolated a spice of humor  into the play with a splendidly  interpreted comedy part. Tonight  the company will give "His Night  Out," a farce-comedy pure and  simple. They promise a first-class  entertainment, and as the company's  promises have been kept to the  letter up to the present.. therelis_no_  reason to doubt that "His Night  Out" will prove a genuine treat.  The Australians have proved themselves to be a clever aggregation of  artists, and theatregoers. should  accord them bumper houses on the.  two remaining nights of their stay.  RACINC TO LOCATE GROUND  On Briggs Creek.  Kaslo, August 30.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The south fork of  Kaslo creek was- the scene of a  rush on Tuesday night when several parties went up to relocate  Robinson Brigg's claim, the Trail.  The claim is situated on Briggs  creek, to be exact, and it i_ within  three-quarters of a mile of the now  famous Cork. Its vicinity to that  claim caused the rush. Briggs held  a two-thirds interest in the claim  and W. J. Davenport the remaining  one-third. They failed to do their  assessme'nt work and several parties  were on the lookout to relocate, but  Briggs gave a bill of sale to A. McQueen, so that the latter had the  right to hold the property until  midnight on the 28tb, and could  keep anybody- off the ground till  that hour, when, the land reverted  to the crown.  Mr. McQueen left here in the  afternoon on a cay use which proved  to be a trifle frisky, but he arrived  at the-claim before dusk, without  serious accident. Exactly, at midnight McQueen says he started to  relocate. "There were no new  stakes'up when I started," he said,  "and not until 20 minutes later did  other parties appear on the ground."  These other parties were. Alex  Linrotli and another. They, aided  by the light of a lantern, also' re-  staked the ground and then returned  to Kaslo. ��� ~ ���  The chief clerk in the mining- recorder's office was proceeding to  breakfast when his services were  urgently asked for. The parties  who had spent the night up the  south fork were,.wery anxious to  get their claim recorded. But the  chief clerk, wanted his breakfast,  and he politely.requested the men  to call round at the office during the  hours named on the door. When  the first hour arrived the parties  were on the doorstep, which one  entered the recording office first  does not really matter. McQueen  paid his fee and recorded the Puritan, Linroth called the claim Patricks. But whether it will' be Pat-*  ricks, or Linroth.'s, or McQueen's or  somebody else's the law courts will  probably decide. It may indeed belong to J. A. Otto and W. Gerrard,  for it seems that they relocated the  claim even before ..McQueen, and  ,they had their watches timed by a  watchmaker, before-. leaving town.  They say that if*McQueen -can show  them that/ he relocated first they  will give a bill of- sale. ��� But they  add, "McQueen can't do it." They  have named the:rclocation Halifax  No. 2.       ___   Adjusting Disputes.
