MORNING SEPTEMBER 5  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  ��������  THE CHINESE ARE ANXIOUS  Peace Commissioners Appointed.  London, September 5.���4.15 a. m.  ���Today's dispatches from  Shang-  Hai and Tien-Tsin refer to the hopeless confusion and  mismanagement  of the Chinese   telegraph  system,  which  may   probably  account   in  part for the delay iu getting news  from Pekin.    Another reason for  the delay, doubtless, is the anxiety  of tho Chinese authorities to procure the evacuation of the capital.  No effort is  being   spared by them  to bring this about.   Their idea is  that,  should  the foreign ministers  iu Pekin be allowed free communi-  entioh with their governments, the  full extent of the complicity of the  Chinese government in the  anti-  foreign outrages would be revealed,  and would lead the allies to decide  to remain   until   retribution   has  been exacted. .  The empress dowager's ��� "anti-  foreign frenzy in Juue, according to  special dispatches from Shang-Hai,  was due to the presentation^ to her  by prince Tiuiu of an ultimatum  wliich is now known to have been  forged, in whicli the powers demanded her abdication in favor of  emperor Kwang Hsu, tho removal  of the seat of government from  Pekin aud tho placing of the Chinese finances under European control and other sweeping concessions.  London, September 5.���"Six  months' rations for the British  forces," says the Tien-Tsin correspondent of the Staudard, wiring  August 27th, "are being forwarded  to Pekin.  Newspaper correspondents are  seriously handicapped by tho bad  arrangements of the Chinese telegraphs. Messages haAre been delayed and tampered with and notli-  iug has been safe unless mailed to  Sliang-Hai. A good deal of curiosity is felt here regarding the fate  of the mail bag containing the official and press dispatches describing  ft.o entry into Pekin, which was  scut by an admiral to Che-Poo in a  Russian gunboat, and is reported  not to have been, received there.  " The proceedings of the Russians  in and around Pekin are watched  with much anxiety. The situation  threatens to develop many complications.' It is said that the Russians intend to take Shan Hai  Kwan. They have assumed complete possession of the Hsi Ku  arsenal at Tien-Tsin and allow admission to none bub Russians. The  arsenal contains thousands of  pounds' worth of guns and ammunition. The Russians are charged  with cutting the wire between this  point and Pekin and with committing various other petty annoyances."  Shang-IIat, , September 4.���Li  Hung Chang, Yung. Lu, Hsu Tung  and prince Chang, whom an imperial edict has appointed peace  commissioners, constitute a radically anti-foreign commission. Hsu  Tung, guardian of the heir appar-  _ent,-is.especially_obuoxiouR���Thr.ee.  of the commissioners are Manchus.  The American association, whose  membership includes all the business men at Shang-Hai, met today  and adopted a protest against the  evacuation of Pekin until a final  settlement has been reached.  The meeting resolved to urge  president McKiniey to insist upon  tho appointment of satisfactory  commissioners and the recognition  of the emperor as sovereign.  Powers Exchange Ideas. .  Rome, September 4.���The Tri-  buua, discussing the Russiau proposal, says: "According to information received' from reliable  sources, only the United States  government has as yet answered  the proposals of Russia. An exchange of ideas between the powers  is in progress. The various governments have telegraphed their  representatives in Pekin, asking an  opinion regarding the withdrawal  of the troops and what the military situation wonld be resulting  from the decision of Russia."  Russians Stand Alone.  Shang-Hai, September 4,-r-Re-  ports received here from.the treaty  - ports show that the opposition to  the allied forces evacuating Pekin  before the final settlement with the  Chinese is arrived at is universal  and intense among the foreigners.  The commercial and missionary  bodies are cabling protests to their  boards. The diplomatic and military officers, except the Russians,  share this feeling. Li Hung Chang,  since his understanding with Russia,  has changed front towards the re  presentatives of other( powers and  has been insolent and almost insulting in his interviews with them.  Li Hung Chang. has recommended  the dowager empress to appoint the  tw6 southern viceroys who made  tho agreement with the consuls to  keep order in thoir territories, the  president of the tsung li yamen  and himself as a commission to  treat with the powers. Li starts  for Tien-Tsin in a week on a Chinese  ship convoyed by a Japanese warship. AV. W. Rockhill, the United  States special commissioner, starts  for Pekin on Thursday. 7  RIFLE ASSOCIATION MEET  Programme Arranged.      q     .  The Nelson Rifle Association is  rapidly concluding arrangements  for their first annual prizei shoot,  and the program of the event, which  takes place on September 28 and 29,  will be in the printers' hands in a  day or two. George M. Phillips;  secretary of the association, is in  receipt of a number of letters from  well known riflemen at Revelstoke  and the coast who are asking for  information with a view to participating.  The matches have been arranged  as follows:  Nursery match, open to all members of the association who have  never won over- $3.00 in any military rillo contest ;* en trance fee 00  cents���range 200 yards, seven shots  kneeling or standing, twelve cash  prizes aggregating $250.

Other competitions will probably  be added before the list is closed.  IHETTAMARAOJWLLSHIP-  Development Mapped Out.  The management of the Tamarac  mine near Ymir contemplates immediate action in the direction of  placing the property on a shipping  basis. A. Marsh, secretary, F. W.  Rolt, director and engineer Roberts  recently visited the mine and decided on a course of action which  is beiug put in force as rapidly as  circumstances permit.  The company has 1200 tons. of  ore on the dumps at the-mine, and  15,000 tons in sight. They hope to  commence shipping 40 tous daily of  $12 to $14 ore within a few weeks  and to continue shipping until next  spring. Development has been  carried on steadily and the vein  was recently struck some distance  below the previous lower level,  giving a probable total depth of  250 feet.  The programme for this summer's  work included the erection of a mill  and the construction of a tramway  to convey ore from the mine to the  mill. The stock was recently made  assessable, however, and, the time  necessary to raising funds delayed  matters until it is now recognized  that the mill must be dispensed  with Until next year. The tramway will be built immediately and  used to bring ore to the railroad  from where it will be shipped to  one of the district smelters, probably that at Nelson. The plans for  the tramway, which is to be 5800  feet long, are now in the hands of  the manufacturers for estimates.  IMPORTANT MINING  DEAL  Commonwealth Group Sold.  An important mining deal was  closed in Nelson during the last  clay or so, when the Canadian Gold  Fields Syndicate of Rossland acquired the Commonwealth group  of claims located twelve miles back  of Crawford bay. The consideration was $50,000.  The Commonwealth was owned  by Thomas G. Procter of Nelson,  W. S; Drewry of New Denver and  J. J. Shallcross of Victoria. The  syndicate was represented in the  negotiations by J. C. Drewry of  Rossland. The property consists of  three claims, on which $9000 has  been expended in development.  Mr. Drewry has let a contract for  100 feet of sinking on the main  shaft and a considerable addition  to the 340-foot tunnel on the property. The new owners will continue development. all winter, but  have no intention of making shipments until such time as the property is thoroughly opened up. The  Commonwealth is near the well-  known Silver Hill mine, and Mr..  Drewry predicts that it will become  one of the largest properties in the  district.    ���   Ll WOULD LIKE A RUPTURE  To Occur Among the Allies.  Washington, September 4.���The  text of the Conger dispatch was  not made public, but it was authoritatively stated that it did not  change the situation and was devoted somewhat to expressions of  opinion. It was authoritatively  stated in this connection that minister Conger will remain at "his post  until further orders. Up to this  time he has expressed no wish to  be relieved, and the state department holds that since he has passed  through the perilous 4ordeal-.-of-;tUo-  relief under the present unfavorable conditions. In view of the  statement of count Landors, Russian minister of foreign affairs, in  the official messages, that orders  had been issued to M. De Giers and  to the army to leave. Pekin, the  statement was made at the department of state today that no such  determinations had been communicated to Washington.  Probably nothing short of an  official statement from Pekin to the  effect that the Russians have  moved would be regarded by the  United States government as  sufficient basis for such important  action as the withdrawal of its  troops.  In diplomatic quarters Russia's  motive continues to be a fruitful  theme. The theory advanced by  M. Blowitz in the London Times  that it was an offset to France for  -Russia's���supposed���nomination=of-  count von Waldersee is regarded as  purely fancy. A much simpler and  more reasonable explanation is that  advanced by one of the diplomatic  officials who has taken an active  part in the negotiations. He says  that Russia recognizes the obvious  fact that it is to their advantage to  have a weak neighbor instead of  having a partition of China, which  would rauge a number of powers  alongside of Russia. For this^ reason ib is said Russia's aim is to  maintain the present territorial  conditions.  The report that the Chinese minister at St. Petersburg, Mr. Yang  Yu, was obliged to give up his residence and seek cheap quarters  because of the lack of remittances  from Pekin, is disposed of by Mr.  Si, one of the Chinese officials who  has just arrived here from St.  Petersburg. He says that Mr.  Yang Yu gave up his house because  the lease expired and he expected  to be dispossessed. This was not  due to lack of remittances. As a  matter of fact, the information  reaching here shows that the  Chinese government is: now carrying on its various governmental  functions. There has beena decrease  in revenues due to the disorder, but  a regular system of government is  being carried on the same as ever.  An official communication received here through diplomatic  channels makes the rather surprising statement that Li Hung Chang  is at present using all his efforts to  have one or more of the powers dissent from Russia's proposition, believing that a rupture of the allies  will be  of greater  advantage  to  China than any agreement put for  ward by Russia.  The war   department today received information that the work  of laying the cable from Shang-Hai  to Che-Foo has been commenced.  It is believed that unless some accident is encountered the cable will  be   completed   and    in   operation  within   a   week.     This   ought  to  make      communication      between  Washington    and   our   officials in  China much more expeditious.   In  ordor to ascertain what messages  havo   been    received    by   general  Chaffee   the war  departmonb today instructed him to acknowledge  the receipt of all dispatches sent  him, giving the date on which they  left here.   It is stated, as the Pekin  date seems to  De cut off from all  dispatches   received  from general  Chaffee that there is a possibilit}'  that   the dateShas been   removed  from dispatches sent to him.   The  department intends to get accurate  information on this point.  DISPATCH  FROM  CHAFFEE  To the -War Department.  Washington," September 4.���A  very interesting 'dispatch was received today - at '-the war department from general Chaffee. It described the military situation as  eminently satisfactory and would  have been of greater value but for  the omission, in common with the  many recent dispatches from China,  of the date line,    f  However, the- % conclusion was  reached that-general Chaffee's dispatch also was sent from Pekin  about August 29tH or 30th. General Chaffee asks a very important  question .as to the withdrawal of  the American troops. The answer  to that-question, it is said, might  have been found/ in the state de-"  partment's answer- to the Russian  evacuation proposition; but that  answer or_ratheri a synopsis of it,  untUthe30th ultT&tf,p___laV.f te<fe��  sumed that, allowing for the same  time in transmittal as was consumed by general Chaffee's dispatch  received today, the synopsis has  just reached him.  When the American answer to  the Russian proposal was made  public it was stated here that  general Chaffee had been instructed  some time before by telegraph just  what course to pursue as to retiring from Pekin iu the event of the  emergeucy that afterward arose.  This being so, today's application  for instructions might be regarded  as an indication that he had not  received the original instruction  when he sent his message.  It is stated that- no order has  been sent to general Chaffee to  leave Pekin as the. result of any  recent development. In fact *fc  would seem that the war department is not able to instruct him  more specifically=on=this=point=until=  the decision of the powers relative  to general evacuation is known. It  was stated at the war department  that the position was unchanged;  if Russia withdraws her troops then  general Chaffee will do the same.  Meanwhile, it is gathered that conditions in China are still disordered,  and foreign life and property are  still unsafe.  St. Petershurg, September 4.���  The following dispatch has been received at the war office from general  Linevitch:  "Pekin, August 21.���The railroad  from Yang Tsung to Pekin is  totally wrecked. Material has been  ordered from Shang-Hai to reconstruct it. A bridge is being built  at Yang Tsun. Roadbed gangs are  working at both ends of the wrecked  road."         In Pursuit of Desperadoes.  Salt Lake, Utah, September 4.���  A special to the Tribune from Rawlins, Wyoming, says: " Three members of the Rock Springs posse  came into the city yesterday, having been forced to quit the chase  because theit horses played out.  They state that the trail of the  robbers was lost Saturday evening,  but that the posse hoped to find it  again Sunday morning. They followed, it to Timberland, a heavily  timbered district. They believe  they were not many hours behind  the robbers Saturday, but were  unable to keep the trail. At the  start there were but four in the  robbers' party, but a few miles  from the railroad a pal joined them  and the five are still traveling in  company.  SOME HIGH-GRADE ASSAYS  In East Kootenay Ore.  J. A. Gilker of Nelson, with Mur-  dock MeLeod aud Charles Munroe is  the owner of a promising group of  claims in the Windermere district.  Tho owners are more than satisfied  with the returns from the claims  and will continue work thereon.  The claims comprise the High  Grade group on the south side of  Toby creek, 30 miles from Windermere, and were staked on July 26th  last, the locators being Messrs.  Gilker, MeLeod and Munroe. Since  then about 20 feet of drifting has  been done. The values are carried  in grey copper, galena and carbonates. The ledge on the surface  ranges from four to fourteen inches  in width, and investigation indicated thab the vein was a true  fissure.  Three samples of ore from the  High Grade have been assayed by I  Geo. B. Church of Nelson, who  makes the following report: No. 1,  silver 249.6 ounces, gold $2.20, lead  4.8 per cent," copper 24.8; No. 2,  silver 86.2 ounces, gold $1.40, copper  28.4 per cent; No. 3, silver 61.2  ounces, gold 80 cents, lead 32.6 per  cent, copper 10.2 per cent.  ALARM FELT IN HONOLULU  Military Strength to Be Increased.  Honolulu, August 28���via San  Francisco, September 4.���The stirring events of the "past few weeks  have resulted in a movement to increase the military strength of the  Hawaiian islands, and arrangements are being made to add to the  f oi'ces now here.'- It is thought that  in the event of some sudden warlike movements Hawaii might have  to defend herself for a time, as the  United States has so far done little  to make the islands safe from invasion.  It is proposed to have a full.regiment of troops here.. There are  ialenty,pt_^?i\o3JiA.Ar"1^��v>ncuw_r;o_^  the old citizens'guard will make  two more, and there are plenty of  men available to complete the regiment. The principal difficulty at  present is a lack of military accoutrements; there are not enough  guns on the islands.  It is found that under the new  conditions of' American government, Honolulu is a very heavy exporter of gold to the United States  and local financiers are thinking of  means to stop such shipments. The  exportations are due to the custom  house collections. Honolulu has no  money except what comes from the  mainland, and the heavy drain, it  is thought, will have bad effects  upon the local money market. Efforts are being made to take advantage of a United States law  which allows for the depositing  with assistant treasurers of duties  to be collected in such cases, vouchee! _4:or-the=cash=to=be=taken=by=the^  collector here instead of money.  As the cash on deposit at San Francisco would be kept up by the sugar  buyers there, this would put an end  to heavy gold exportations from  Hawaii by the customs department.  It would also result in the saving of  a considerable sum of money now  being paid for constant importations of gold, only to have the gold  sent back to the coast.  A. T. Atkiuson, superintendent of  public instruction here, has received  from Manila a letter in whicli the  American superintendent of public  instruction for tlio Philippines asks  for some teachers to be sent to the  Philippines from Hawaii.  The army transport Siam arrived  here on August 25bh from San Francisco, en route to the Philippines  via Guam. She took coal here and  left today. The Siam brought to  Honolulu a saluting battery for the  navy department and a steam  launch for the United States quarantine service, which will be used  to board steamers outside the harbor.  The board of health has decided  that hereafter the lepers in the  settlement on the island of Molokai  will have to be fed on canned beef  instead of fresh, owing to the enormous cost of fresh meat here.  Britain Will Pay.  Berlin, September 4.���The decision of the Anglo-German commission respecting the indemnities to  be paid to the owners of German  vessels seized by British warships  iu South African waters is as  follows: For the detention of the  Bundesrath and   the  Herzog   tho  East African line received ��20,000,  aud ��5,000 will be paid to the  owner of ��the goods. The owners  of the bark Marie ��126. Both  governments have agreed to accept  tho decision.   For Governor of Vermont.  White River Junction, Vermont, September 4.���Returns from  fifty towns give the gubernatorial  vote as follows: Stickney (Republican) 11,153; Senter (Democratic)  3286, others 336. The same towns  in 1806 gave Grout, (Republican)  12,751; Jackson (Democratic) 3888,  others 361. Republican loss, 1998 ;  Democratic loss, 602.  STRIKE IN WINNIPEG MINE  ���_*_  .^ r  f .'ift  - In Wellington Camp.  Greenwood, September 4.���[Special to The Tribune.]���A discovery  which is regarded as important  was made at the Winnipeg mine on  Sunday last. Three or four years  ago some rich ore was found near  the surface. Upon going down  upon what appeared to be the vein  -it came-from, pyrrhotite carrying  only small values was met 'with.  At about 60 feet depth this working was abandoned. A few days  ago superintendent Tregear, in order to satisfy himself as to whether  the better class of ore had really  given out or not, put in . a crosscut  at 35 feet from the surface and this  ran through another vein of ore  and came against, what appears to  be the true hanging wall. This  vein apexes at the surface with the  pyrrhotite vein- and it. is thought  that the newly found vein is the  one that carries high values. This  will shortly be determined by suitable tests. The vein lately opened  up at the 300-foot level is now  opening up "very well." The winze  put down* in this vein now shows  at ISfeet'depth that there is ten  feet of shipping ore.  A neighboring-claim- to the Winnipeg, known- as^the J. and R., is  thirty-two feet in depth shows  nearly four feet of fine-looking ore,  pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite with a  quartz gangue, which is the characteristic ore of this part of Wellington camp.  A Greenwood cricket team went  over to Grand Forks yesterday, and  there easily beat a Grand Forks  team, which made only 26 and 22  runs respectively in their first and  second innings against the Greenwood team's 80 and 06. A very enjoyable time was spent by the  visitors, who were hospitably entertained by their Grand Forks hosts.  Dividend Declared.'  New York, September 4.���At a  meeting of the board of directors  of the Commercial Cable Company  held here to day, the regular quarterly dividend of one and three-  quarter per cent was declared pay-  =able^on=October^lst.;=4__e==books=  will be closed on September 20th  and reopened October 2nd.  ANOTHER ENGINE LAID UP  Accident in the Yards.  Another C. P. R. engine was laid  up yesterday as the result of an  accident in the yards about 2 o'clock  a. m. The Hinckley switch engine  No. 109 was switching cars at the  lower end of the yard and while  putting several box cars into a siding ran foul of some cars on another  siding. The engine was forced  ahead by the impetus of fifteen cars  behind, and one side was stripped  from pilot to rear footboard, while  several cars were more or less badly  wrecked. The fireman's side of the  cab was ripped completely off with  the apparatus, but no one was  injured. The locomotive cannot be  used until extensive repairs are  made, which will be some time  hence owing to the strikes in the  repair shops.  The wreck blocked the main line,  and" the emergency gang which  arrived on the scene within a short  time laid a new track, over which  trains were run. The line was  cleared yesterday afternoon.  The Tribune was misinformed  in one particular with regard to the  accident at trestle No. 57 on Monday night. The cars which left the  rails went into the gully beneath  without damaging the bridge in  the slightest degree, and the Rossland train crossed a couple of hours  after.  GITY  ENGINEER'S  REPORT  On Electric Light Dam.  At last night's meeting of tiie'  city council the electric light dam  was discussed.   The city engineer;  submitted the report on which he ���  has been working for several dnys.^  For a new dam at the southerly  limits    of  the   city, say   15- feet  above the present level of the creek/  he figured that the length on the,  crest   would   be 160 feet, storage^  capacity   three    million   feet-and  cost $3500, while the extension of ,*'-*_  the flume 2800 feet to the new site^fff  and removal of the present petti'^^i  stock would bring the total cost to'-''j_5j  $7500 or $8000 exclusive of land arid^lfl  right-of-way.   The washout at the:/. _'*  old dam indicated very treacherous y.'^?M  ground on the east side.   The char-'   'f  acter of the ground was such 'as'tb.v^l  make   it a most unsafe   place t6*;;.^l  erect   a dam, but by going   deepf-^^4  enough and taking great precau^'ir  tions, a dam can   be constructed^  that will prevent seepage to any.?^.  great   extent, particularly if, the*K,f|l  upper face *of the dam is thorough- v.^'^'l  ly puddled with clay.   The engi-".^|l_|  neer's estimate for the completion-/^!  of the present dam was $3000 to'-^gt  $3500, but no further cost would tio?.^?|  entailed save for the strengthening?;:^!  of-the penstock.

Charles Hillyer, president of /the '  Nelson Saw & Planing Mills Limited,  applied for an extra hydrant in the  vicinity of "the company's mills.  The matter was referred to the  board of works.  The Nelson Rifle Association"  applied to the council to give a '  prize to be known as the Corporation trophy, and to be competed for  at the association matches. The  finance committee was authorized  to take the application in hand.  Arequestfrqm the Pan-American"  exposition at Bu ffaio that the council should urge the provincial  government to make an exhibit at  the exposition, or failing in this, to  send an exhibit from the city and  district, was received and the clerk  instructed to acknowledge its  receipt.  Mayor Houston stated that under  the amendments to the Municipal  Clauses Act, the corporation could  levy a license of $250 for six months  and $500 ou transient traders.  Alderman Irvine gave notice that  at next meeting he would introduce  amendments along this line to the  bylaw regulating licenses in the  city.  The AVest Kootenay Power to  Light Company, Limited, submitted a proposition to furnish power  to the city for incandescent lighting purposes, offering to accept 50  per cent of the gross proceeds^ of  the city's lighting business, the city  to guarantee the average revenue  from each 16 c. p. light to be not  less than 60 cents, and the agreement to hold good for five years.  The communication was simply  filed.  The latter part of the evening  was spent in the consideration of  by-laws now before the board.  The members present were:  Mayor Houston, aldermen Irvine,  Hall, Wilson, McKillop and Arthur.  Pope Sends a Bull.  Rome, September 4.���The pope  has sent to Mgr.

Snaps at 75,  $1 and up.  of Mainland constituencies. The  ballots issued in Nelson numbered  1604 and the riding returned one  member. The total number of  ballots issued in Cassiar, Cariboo,  East Lillooet and West Lillooet,  was but 1017, bnt they returned six  members. This is something which  should not be lost sight of when the  legislature takes up the next redistribution measure. An absolutely-  fair redistribution measure may be  impossible of attainment but this  difficulty will not stand in the way  of considerable improvement  upon the present basis of representation.  Everyone who has  seen our $12 tweed  suits says they are  bargains at the price,  and have the appearance of tailor made  garments.  Bay Stores  gCitg f&txbxxm*  During the last '.hours of the recent session the provincial secretary  presented   a   return   showing   the  number of ballot papers issued to  voters    iu    the    several     ridings,  throughout the province.   This is  probably the fairest way of judging . the   voting   strength   of   the  ridings and from it the inequalities  in representation are easily seen.  From the -figures furnished  it is  ���shown that 20,080 voters returned  24 members .from. Mainland   constituencies, while 7271 voters. from  Island constituencies returned   14  members.   Taking the average oyer  the Mainland the figures show that  874 electors were necessary for a  representative, while on the Island  the proportion of electors to representatives fell to 519.   Great as this,  disparity appears there is an even  greater difference between the voting strength   and   representation  Toronto will have an independent party in the field in the coming  Dominion election.   The movement  is being nursed by the Trades and  Labor Council of that city, and embraces not only, trades and labor  organizations    but   religious    and  temperance societies.   The platform  which the independent party has  keep'tiie-party In Canada, independent during the natural life of its  members.   It includes direct legislation and proportionate representation, public ownership of public  franchises,    single-tax,   eight-hour  law,.abolition of contract system on  government work, compulsory arbitration and total prohibition of the  liquor traffic.    From the foregoing  it will be seen that the Trades and  Labor Council of Toronto are reformers of no small calibre.   That  they understand the temper of the  two political parties is shown by  their decision to create an independent party as the first step to securing the reforms they desire.  New York State-Convention.  Saratoga, New York, September  4.���The practical work of the state  convention was   completed today  with the adoption of the platform.  "There   only    remains   the   formal  naming.of the candidates, and these  have already been pronounced upon  and known for several days.   Tomorrow will be devoted to oratory,  and  some of the greatest masters  of this art will contribute to the  demonstration.   The ticket will be:  For governor, Benjamin B. Odell;  lieutenant-governor,    Timothy   C.  Woodruff; secretary of state, John  T.    McDonough,    Albany;   comptroller,  William Morgan, Buffalo;  state   treasurer, John  P. Jaeckel,  Cayuga county;   attorney-general,  J. C.  Davies;   state engineer and  surveyor,   A.   E.  Bond,   Jefferson  county. ���   From   this   prearranged  program there can be no deviation.  The oratorical display will be very  pronounced. Former governor  Black will nominate Benjamin  Odell for governor. Senator  Chauncey Depew will follow, when  the convention has ratified this  nomination, nominating Timothy  Woodruff for lieutenant-governor.  This nomination out of the way,  there will follow the renomination  of the present state officers by resolution, aud then will -begin the  ratification of the ticket nominated,  in a speech by governor Roosevelt,  which will doubtless be the event  of the day.   Waldersee's Position Denned.  Berlin, September 4.���The  Berliner Post in au inspired article  defines the position of field marshall count von Waldersee as commander-in-chief, iu a military and  diplomatic sense, saying that this  must necessarily be the arrangement, since it would be impossible  to ask instructions from the differ-  out home governments in each case,  particularly where a quick settlement was requisite.

"  j   The old man changed his position,  laid his long muzzle-loading rifle on  jbho ground, put the fourth portion  o_ a plug of tobacco in his mouth  ind proceeded to tell me why the  liurkeys were always on the run  f.vhen I saw them.  ���fi   "Of all the   game I   have  ever  blunted, turkeys display the most  livonderful power of vision.   I can  liot tell just why this is.    I have  |nade a microscopical examination  |)f the eyes of the hawk, eagle, fox,  jveasel and owl, but find no material  [lifference in the lens and retina;  (lie ciliary muscles and the iris are  Exactly the same; yet none of these  |ceen visioned creatures can compare  |vith the turkey in point of seeing.  I remember the acuteness of sight  |lisplayed by an old gobbler in the  ||pring of 1892. I had carefully  Concealed myself, and no part of  ^!;ny body was visible but the upper  jbortion of my head. A puff of  |vind slightly disturbed tho brim of  Iny hat; he saw it and immediately  .look to flight.  | " On another occasion I was hunting in the mountains in Georgia.

A mosquito was  stinging me fearfully on the forehead ; I raised my finger slowly to  crush it, and as soon as  the finger  of vision,  he was  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager.  E. Hay, Inspeoter.

"Now, the most inexplicable  thiug in regard to turkey hunting  is that, with all his astuteness of  sight, the surest way to get a shot  ia to sit down in an open place with  your back against a tree, in full  view, and, strange to say, he will  walk up within ten steps without  seeing you."  Just then we noticed that the  sun was down; the old hunter  invited me to spend the night at  his camp, which I did, and had a  most pleasant time.  A STBANGE TOWN.  "The most interesting place it  has been my good fortune to visit  in many years," said T. M. Gilmore,  on his return from the east a few  days ago to a Louisville Courier-  Journal reporter, "is the little town  of Economy, Pennsylvania. It is  well worth a long journey to see,  and the people are the most delightful I have ever met. The foundation of this town dates back to  1805. It was settled by a priest, -  whbse name was Father Rapp, and  a number of Germans. They organized a society, which was called the  Harmony Society, and numbered  nearly 1000 people at the time.  They pledged themselves never to  marry, and since the town was  founded there has only been one  marriage. The society has now  dwindled to nine persons, but the  town is thickly populated because  of the advent of other persons, who  lease and operate the factories. The  society owns 3500 acres of land,  1 which is in a high state of culti  vation. Coal, iron and gas abound.  Grapes are raised in great quantities and are made into wine of  fine quality.  "The town is very pretty, with  wide and   shady streets, and with  houses covered with vines.. They  have no doors, and the only entrance is from the rear.   Economy  is exercised on all sides; and when  the society is reduced to one person  he will get the entire vast estate.  People visit the place from all parts  of the world.   Men and women live  apart and all seem to be happy and  contented.     The present   head of  the society is a-married man.   He  was single when he joined it, but  he   afterwards    left   it   and   was  married.     The   people   recognised  him as a leader, and he was invited  back andmade their chief. ' He and  his family live in a handsome residence in the center of the town and  have everything heart could desire.  AVhen the old members die lie or  W. REINHARD, Mi D.  General Practice.

The  subject of the sermon will be " Veracity in Matters of Religion." All  are cordially invited.  City clerk Strachan last "evening  received a communication from  Arthur F. Sladen, private secretary  to lord Minto, to the effect that it  will be impossible for the governor-  general to accept the invitation of  the corporation to visit Nelson.  Owing to lord Minto's absence in  the north the city's invitation did  not reach him till Saturday. . He  acknowledged the invitation with  thanks but was sb circumstanced  that he could not spare the time.   .  The cricket club has opened  negotiations with the tramway  company to obtain playing privileges on the new athletic park to  be opened at the terminus of the  car line. The cricketers require  that the pitch, or ground between  and in the immediate vicinity of  the wickets, shall be quiet smooth.  The game is played at a disadvantage unless this can be obtained,  and they believe that better results  can be attained at the new park  than on the recreation grounds.  C. W. Dill, captain of the association football club, was notified  yesterday by the manager of the  Grand Forks team that the latter  would be here on Saturday without  fail.' They will bring a fast team  and are confident of downing the  Nelson eleven. The local men differ  on the latter point, but are preparing for one of the hardest games  of the season. The Grand Forks  team recently gave a smoking concert and raised enough money to  see them through the trip to Nelson.  Mining: Eecords.  Yesterday's mininqr records were:  Transfers, W. A.

HOW B. H. LEE WAS KILLED  Never Saw Bis Assailant.  A. A. Pitchford, of the Nelson  fire department, yesterday received  a letter from Percy Switzer, one of  the Nelson men who is with the  Strathcona Horse in South Africa.  The letter was written from Water -  val, on July 12th, some days before  the writer was reported as wounded.  In his letter Switzer gives an account of the death of corporal Benjamin Henry Lee ��� who was well  known in Nelson. From Switzer's  account Lee was killed on July 7th.  Lee was some - distance from camp,  in company with a trooper named  Dunn, when a party of Boers; under  the cover of a stone fence, crept up  within fifty yards. Lee was lighting his pipe when the first shot hit  him. Dunn's horse was shot under  him, but he personally escaped unhurt. When Lee fell Dunn Avent to  his assistance, but the corporal had  three balls in him and died in a  short time. The Boei_ then disarmed Dunn, and after securing the  saddle from his horse, the arms of  the two men, "as well as Lee's hoi_e,  they made off;,...allowing Dunn to  make his way back to camp. Lee's  death was avenged in part next  day as a party of Strathcona's  Horse came upon the Boer party  and killed one' of them.

Seattle, September 4.���Joseph  Svatonsky, a Rnssian, probably  holds the record for slow travel  over the treachei'ous Edmonton  trail. Klondike passengers of the  steamer City df Seattle say that he  reached Dawson, August 21st having been", two years and. three  months oh the death-strewn highway to the Yukon's treasure land.  He left Chicago in th&spring of  1898. He declares that one faces  death in a thousand' forms on the  Edmonton route.���- The winter-of  1899 he passed 'on- Dead island "in  the Great Slave, lake country. He  trapped, hunted and prospected and  in the , spring stampeded to what  was declared to .be'a big quartz discovery, 100. miles off the trail. But  the "find proved worthless, and in  May Svatonsky resumed his journey. He ascended the Peel and  Rat rivers, being several times capsized in the wild rapids of these  streams. Once he said he would  have drowned but for the friendly  Indians who rescued him. Crossing the Rockies he built a raft and  floated, down Salmon river to the  Yukon, where he took a steamer for.  Dawson.     '���'��'��������� "  Refugees From China.  Niagara Falls, New York, September 4.���A- distinguished foreign  party are guests at the Prospect  House. In the party are Mr. and  Mrs Carl Holstrom of Pekin, Dr. O.  W-^Audrews,-_l7iMrS.-Tamar,-Royal  Navy, and " Mrs Andrews of  Hong Kong and Mr. Drummond  Hay of Shang-Hai, editor of the  North China Herald. Mr. Holstrom  was the last man but one to leave  Pekin before the city was cut off  from railroad communication. He  considers that the allied forces are  making a fatal mistake in withdrawing from that city, knowing  the Chinese as he does. He thinks  that now is the time to establish a  stable form of government and  push forward the reforms contemplated. The present government  and Li Hung Chang he characterized as treacherous and wholly unreliable. Ho says China is simply  playing for time and hopes to cause  dissension among the powers. Mr.  Holstrom would not state his business in China. He has passed six  years in Pekin in the secret service.  Tried to Shoot Him.

Branstetter and his intended victim, H. B. Eastman, the  well-known capitalist. No one Was  hurt] A school election was in  progress, over which there was a  lively contest. Branstetter was  bitterly opposed to T. D. Cahalan,  one of the candidates for trustees.  He approached Mr. Eastman and  abused him for supporting Cahalan,  calling him vile names.
