Texas, Sept. 13.���Governor Sayers today made the following statement to the Associated  Press ou the flood situation: Conditions at Galveston are fully as  as bad as reported. Communications however, have been reestablished between the island and mainland and hereafter transportation  of supplies will be less difficult.  The work of clearing the city is  progressing fairly well and adjutant-general Scurry, under direction of the mayor, is patrolling the  city for the purpose of preventing-  depredations.  The most conservative estimate  to the number of deaths places it at  2000. Contributions from citizens"  of this state, and also from other  states, are coming rapidly and  liberally, and it is confidently expected that within the next ten  days work of restoration by the  people of Galveston will have begun  in good'earnest, and with energy  and success. Of course the destruction of property has been very  great���not less than $10,000,000���  bufc ifc is hoped and believed that  even this great loss will be overcome through the energy of the  people.  During the day contributions  have fairly deluged the governor,  upwards of $100,000 having 'been  received. Governor Sayers today  began receiving reports from various points along the Gulf coast,  which would indicate that there  has been great property damage  done for several hundred miles, and  that the list of Galveston fatalities  and suffering will be largely augmented. ,  Owing to the fact that the telegraph service is still badly crippled"  governor Sayers cannot ascertain  tho exact number- of "dead at the  points named, but it is approximated at five hundred.  .-- Reports--which_have ..reached, the  governor show that;the railroad  telegraph and telephone companies  have suffered enormous loss. The  governor was informed today thafc  quite a number of tugs from New  Orleans and other available points  had either arrived or were en route  to Galveston, and that by Saturday  the transportation problem would  be solved so far as getting people  from the island to the mainland  was concerned.  DEATH ROLL IS INCREASING  Passenger Train Was Wrecked.  New Orleans, September 13.���  The state today received a telegram from Hon. John Poe, member  of the state board of education, residing at Lake Charles, and stating  that 85 lives were lost on the Gulf  & Interstate train, which left Beau-  "mont early Saturday from Bolivar  Point, after having made connections with the Southern Pacific  train which left this city Friday  night.      ���   - '-"'��� .. ��� ���  After a Highwayman. '<���-������  Denver, Colorado, September 13.  ���Burlington train No. 1, known as  the "Overland Flyer," was held up  by a lone highwayman at 2 o'clock  this morning five miles east of  Haighler, Nebraska, near the  Colorado line. The robber secured  about $5000 in cash and probably  twice that much in diamonds and  watches and then made his escape  by bringing the train to a stop. He  went through both sleepers, but  did not molest the chair cars. The  railroad officials offer $1000 for his  capture and posses have started eut  in all directions.  Yerkes Reaching Out.  London, September 13.���There is  considerable comment here upon  the New York cable dispatches announcing that Charles T. Yerkes of  Chicago and New York has purchased the franchise of the Charing  Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railroad, and that it is proposed for  them, it is said, to construct another electric underground road.  The company's secretary, Mr.  Smith, however, denies the statement.   Labor Men Convene.  Utica, New York, September  13.���The third annual convention  of the New York State Working-  men's Federation opened in this  city this morning.   The federation  is largely a labor political body, and  its members wield much political  influence'at the polls. The session  will consider the relation of the  various state, officials to the measures affecting labor, and the deductions will be scattered broadcast  among the voters of the state. A  bill framed on the same plan as the  recent employers' liability bill will  be drawn up this- afternoon to be  presented to tho next legislature.  THROWING UP fHFsPONGE  General Botha Resigns.  Lorenzo Marqcez, September  13.���Paul Kruger ^telegraphed his  wife to join him before sailing, but  she replied that herjjiealfch will not  permit. - It is reported that commandant-general Louis Botha has  resigned the chief command of the  Transvaal forces to" commandant  Viljoen. ' .,  Washington, September 13.���  The following dispatch has been  received��. by" the war department  from the United States army officer  who accompanied the Boers in the  campaign as military observer:  "Lorenzo Marquez. --. Events  have required the departure of  attaches from the Transvaal; request instructions, (signed) Rech-  mann." . This message" "is interpreted at the department' to mean  the complete collapse of Boer resistance, to England., Captain Rech-  mannhas been cabled permission  to start at. once for the United  States.      - .  Rainbow an Easy Winner.  New York, September 13.���Just  as the sun ��� went ' down Cornelius  Vanderbilt's' seventy-foot. sloop  yacht Rainbow, travelling at a 13-  knot clip, and with her lee "rail all  awash, dashed-across the fiuish line  of Sandy Hook light ship today, the  leader and winner in the 30-mile  race against. August Belmont's  Mineola, Durj-ea and Whitney's  Yankee, - and" W. K. Vander-  .-bilfc's Junior Virginia. By.the.-h'and;  some marginpf 3 minutes,' 22 seconds^  the Rainbow has won the $1000  cup, offered by sir Thomas Lipton.  The Mineola was second, Virginia  third and Yankee fourth. David  Barrie, sir Thomas Lipton's representative who was on board the  steamer, said after the race: "I am  sure if sir Thomas had been here  he would have said the race was  perfectly fair from start to finish,  and the besfc boat won the cup. I  shall cable the result to him at  once."         Dowager Empress   Frederick Unwell.  BERLiN,September-13.���Sir Frank  Lascelles, the British ambassador,  who has just returned from a  month's vacation at Hamburg, says  the dowager empress Frederick will  not come to Berlin for the winter,  but will go to Italy again. Before  going to Italy she will visit queen  Victoiia, if able to do so. "I saw  the-dowager-empress-twice;"-said  sir Frank Lascelles, and she is certainly not a well woman, although  her appearance is not worse than it  was a year ago when her health  was first affected. She has grown  lame on one foot and needs assistance when walking.  Discussing Kruger's Flight.  Berlin, September 13. ��� The  German papers, discussing Kruger's  arrival at Lorenzo Marquez, interpret it as tantamount to the end of  the war. The National-Zeitung  says : "This remains true even if  Mr. Kruger is absent to make efforts  for the intervention of Europe."  The Vossiche Zeitung says: "The  friends of the Boers must reconcile  themselves to the fact that the  Boers' power of resistance is de-  finitelv broken."  Cyclone Strikes Ontario.  Montreal, September- 13.���According to meagre reports received  here the tail end of the Galveston  cyclone appears to have struck  Ontario at an early hour Tuesday  .morning, and it is feared has done  immense damage to the fruifc and  other farm produce, as well as to  out-buildings, etc. Telegraphic  communication has also been in-  been interrupted, and uutil it is restored, the exact amount of damage  will not be known.  To Succeed Brown.  London, September 13.���A special  dispatch from Shang-Hai announces  that a Japanese official has been  appointed to succeed to Mr. Brown,  the English financial director and  commissioner of customs of Corea  CRISIS HAS BEEN AVERTED  Russia Will Modify Terms.  Washington, September^ 13.���  The crisis thafc was near at; hand  yesterday over the evacuationpro-  posal of the Russian government,  has been averted for a time at  least, and the diplomatic side of the  matter has again become the object  of attention. The order of general  Chaffee, to leave at once, which  was expeeted in some quarters, did  not issue today. Instead earnest  efforts are'making to arrange the  preliminaries for the negotiations  which are expected finally to settle  the Chinese troubles.  Li Hung Chang's message today  removed perhaps the last obstacle  to the speedy beginning of these  negotiations, and the only doubt  that now exists as to his ability to  redeem his pledge, protect American iutei'ests and stop the outrages  upon the missionaries and native  converts.  The Russian troops will not  evacuate Pekin until some arrangements have been made ��� for the installation of a government to take  charge of affairs, is directly in line  with the aim the state department  has been pursuing in the exchanges  with-Li Hung Chang, and-if this  is adhered to ifc certainly jwill  facilitate the ultimate withdrawal  of all of the foreign forces. An inference from the Russian statement  is that Li's coming to Pekin will be  forwarded by Russia, in the hope of  making the desired arrangement  for the establishment of a Chinese  government there. As Li cannot  reach the capital from Shang-Hai,  starting tomorrow, inside of a week,'  ifc may be thafc there will be no de:  velopments in, the international  situation within that period of-  time.  The government has not been advised yet that all of the answers to  the Russian notes have been re;  turned. It is said that all of' the"  powers have-been replied from .on,  the!subject,'but the disposition, is'  to regard their communication?not  as answers but rather as argumentative statements which leave  the main issue still open for discussion. This poinfc, however, becomes of diminished importance in  view of the announced purpose of  the Russian government to modify  the terms of its original proposition  in the manner indicated.  Report From Greely.  Washington, September 13.���A  report has been received from general Greely, chief of the signal  office, who went to Alaska to arrange for telegraphic communication with that territory, saying  that the line will be working to  Fort Egbert, Eagle City, by the end  of September.' The Canadian line  extends from Ashcroft north to  Dawson City and the boundary  line. The United States has constructed a line from Fort Egbert to  "meet"this~line. Auofctier'lihe is being built by the United States up  the Yukon river, which it is intended sliall connect Fort Egbert,  but ifc is nofc likely that ifc will be  completed this season.  peg early. The Winnipeg twelve  is to play at Westminster during  the fall fair next month, and the  local men figure on having them return east over the Crow's Nest road,  stopping over in Nelson for a game.  As the transportation can be arranged without extra expense and  as the Winnipeggers would probably prefer to come through this  way, the scheme seems likely to go  through.  GALVESTON IS RECOVERING  Anarchy No Longer Feared.  Galveston,    Texas,   September  13.���Galveston is-beginning to slowly recover from the stunning blow  of lasfc week, and, though the city  appears tonight to be desolate, the  authorities and the commercial and  industrial interests are getting their  forces to work, and a start has at  last been made toward the resumption   of   business   on   a moderate  scale.   The presence of troops has  had a beneficial   effect   upon the  criminal classes, and the apprehension of a brief bufc desperate reign  of anarchy now no longer, exists.  The saloons have at least tempor:  arily gone out of business and every  strong-limbed man who has not his  own humble abode to look after; is  being pressed into service, so that  first of all the water service may  be resumed, the gutters flushed and  the streets lighted. ~'  '  On the beach yesterday a searching party found a score "of corpses  within a small area, going to show  that the bulwark of debris that lies  straight across the island conceals  many more bodies than have been  accounted for.  . Corpses are .being buried, when  found without delay. It will probably' be many days yet, however,  before all the. floating bodies' have  been found. All along the beach  they>re constantly being washed  up.' It is not known whether these  are those which were swept into  the Gulf and drowned or are simply  some of those.cast.into'the .sea., rev  turning ashore. In .any event, the  Associated. Press correspondent, in  a trip across" the bay yesterday,  counted seven bodies tossing in the  waves, witli a score of horses and  cattle, the stench from which was  unbearable.

The Times has an in--;**  teresting dispatch from Pekin,^"  dated September 4th, which snys '^  in part: "Russia has decided to X-��  withdraw her legation from Pekin. y_\i  leaving a purely military command. *;<��  An official announcement of this is yh  expected today.

Buffalo,September 13.���Reports  from Crystal Beach, a summer resort ou the Canadian side of Lake  Erie, say that every dock has been  destroyed by the terrific storm of  Tuesday night and all boats from  Buffalo and many steam yachts anchored there, were completely  wrecked. The damage is very  heavy. The wind attained a velocity of 82 miles per hour, but beyond blowing down a number of  trees and the wrecking of awnings  and chimneys, and the destruction  of a tower of one of the Pan-America buildings iu the courso of erection, no serious damage is reported.  Li Will Start Today.  Washington, D. C, September  13.���Mr. Wu, the Chinese minister,  has received a dispatch from Li  Hung Chang, announcing that he  expects to leave Shang-Hai tomorrow for the north. Earl^Li should  reach Tien-Tsin in about'-three and  a half days. After a" short rest at  Tien-Tsin he will proceed to Pekin,  where it is expected be will promptly open negotiations with the representatives of the powers for the  settlement of peace terms.  Trying for Another Game.  Having failed to secure the Westminster Lacrosse club for a game  here through waiting, tho Nelson  enthusiasts are going after Winni-  Military Manoeuvres.  Berlin, September 13.���The German military manoeuvres in accordance with plans prepared by  emperor William have not gone far  enough to enable an analysis of the  scheme. The supposition is that a  hostile fleet can withstand a hostile army on the shore after having  defeated the German fleet near Ar-  cona. The enemy has attempted  to push on quickly to Berlin, where  however, an army is formed which  moves by forced march toward  Stettin, repulsing the invaders. Today the hostile cavalry .and_in__  fanfcry divisions are near Pyritze  Pinomerania. The weather has  been cool and dry until last evening when a warm rain set in.  Prince Henry of Prussia and the  emperor have been participating.  The Doncaster Meeting.  London, September 13.���At the  third days racing of the Doncaster  meeting today the corporation selling handicap plate of 200 sovereigns, for three year olds and upwards, the winner to be sold afc auction for 100 sovereigns, Six furlongs,  was won by "Remember Me," ridden by Rigby, who also on Tin Soldier tied for first place in the race  for the Rouse plate of 500 sovereigns for 2-year olds, the tieing  horse being Sequestfc. The Portland plate of 700 sovereigns, added  to a sweepstake of 10 sovereigns  for 3-year olds and upwards, five  furlongs and 152 yards, was won by  the prince of Wales' chesnut horse  Tuck-now, on which Tod Sloan had  the mount.  y  Ml  Colonel Benson Arrives.  Lieutenant-colonel Benson of  Victoria, district officer commanding the militia of British Columbia,  arrived in the city last night to  conduct the inspection of the local  company. The inspection takes  place at the skating rink tonight.  The company will be put through a  searching examination in company  drill and rifle exercise, to be followed by a test of efficiency in the  use of the Maxim gun. On Saturday  colonel Benson is to visit the rifle  ranges for the purpose of preparing  a report to be submitted to the  militia department.  3 _  winter.~'r&.

Pekin, September 9.���The Japanese have arrested the assassin of  baron von Ketteler, the late German minister to China, and handed  him over to the Germans. He has  confessed his guilt. He was arrested for trying to sell_to j^Japan-^  -ese"~"bfficer a watch with initials  which he admitted was taken from  the body of von Ketteler. He  afterwards admitted the crime,  saying that the imperial government ordered the commission of the  act.  ST. PETERSBURG VERSION  Of the Chinese Muddle.  London, September 14.���According to the Daily Mail's St. Petersburg correspondent, who claims to  be able to indicate the exact  diplomatic situation, the attitude  of the United States is so indefinite  that there is no absolute certainty  whether Washington will accept or  reject the Russian ' proposition.  Germany, according to the same  authority, was the first to reply.  She based her refusal on the ground  thafc withdrawal would lead to further trouble and to the massacre of  thousands of other converts.  Russia and France, says the correspondent, are finding their position awkward, and aro not likely to  hurry to quit Pekin en masse. The  Japanese general Yamaguchi, telegraphed his government from Pekin  September Oth, that the emperor's  chamberlain has just arrived. This  probably means that some negotiations are on foot for the return of  the emperor. Other Japanese authorities report that Pekin is returning to its normal condition,  and order is beiug restored. Native  refugees are coming back and foreign residents are leaving to recuperate. _+?_,- th.v^^b. _. ���._.���: ;;.', ^r.7vrr-^-(^|Cay,<Vtf��*]pj��t  THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON B.

As was predicted by The Trt-  .bune.the Conservatives of Nelson  last evening refused to carry the  handicap which the officers of the  local association placed upon them  by their efforts to disfranchise a  large number of electors without a  hearing. . The officers and members  of the local association who accepted full responsibility for the  disreputable business did not get a  chance to accept; anything else.  The Conservative machine, which  was used some months  ago in an  effort   to   disfranchise   some  489  voters   in   the Nelson   riding, no  longer controls the Conservatives  of this ciby.   To have endorsed the  action of the machine would have  been fatal to the party's chance of  success in the approaching contest.  The   Conservatives   of Nelson repudiated the machine' by refusing  to name as delegates to the Revelstoke convention any member who  in any way was mixed up with the  disreputable tactics which marked  th e, last revision of fche provincial  lists.    The Victoria Colonist is quibbling  over the question of the redistribution of seats in the provincial  legislature. It attempts to justify  the existing inequalities between  the-representation of Island constituencies and Kootenay constituencies with the statement that  jgoine years ago West Kootenay had  Offensive Criticism Resented.  Vancouver. World.  The Nelson Miner is unnecessarily  offensive   in   its   personal   attack  upon  W. A.,��� Galliher, barrister of  that city, who is now the Liberal  candidate   for   the    Cariboo-Yale-  Kootenay electoral district.      Mr.  Galliher is a Canadian, to the manner born, a native, we believe, of  the county of Bruce, Ontario.    For  a number of years he helped his  parents and other members of the  family to hew out of the forest,  then known as the Queen's Bush, a  home   for   themselves.    Being  an  ambitious and studious young man  he employed his leisure hours, in  reading the best authors which he  could lay his hands upon.     In this  respect he emulated Hon. Alex Mackenzie, the stone-mason premier of  the Dominion; J. S. Willison, of the  Toronto Globe, acknowledged to be  Canada's most accomplished journalist, and many others who have  pushed their way to the front by  their own determination to succeed.  During his residence in Winnipeg,  and elsewhere in the east, Mr. Galliher made legions of: friends and  admirers. He has ever been a warm  supporter of every measure tending  to ameliorate the condition of his  fellowman, especially the laboring  classes, and bread-winners in general.    Gifted with more than average ability���a fluent speaker, a versatile   conversationalist,   ready of  wit with an aptitude for grasping in  an exceedingly brief period any plan  "or"pbli"cy"_raviug_f6r���its" objectTthe"  advancement and well-being of the  people, and the prosperity of the  country, as well as being a powerful debater, he is a peculiarly desirable gentleman to occupy a. seat  in the chief council of the nation���  a member of the house of commons afc  Ottawa for the Cariboo-Yale-Koot-  enay electoral district.  A Case of Mistaken Identity.  London, September 13.���The  United States charge d'affaires,  Henry White, protested at the foreign oflice today against the treatment to whicli Mrs. Mary Rowe of  Denver has been subjected by the  police of Westgate-on-the-sea.

Port Toavnsend, September 12.���  The passengers of the San Pedro,  which arrived here today confirm  the reports of the richness of the  Bluestone discovery. A man named  Parker, who came down "on the  vessel and who was among the first  on the ground, sold his claim for  $10,000 and is on his way east. Returning passengers report that  already winter is setting in. The  ruffianly element have become unusually bold and men are knocked  down and robbed nightly. Several  cases are reported where the victims  had just enough inouey to pay tlieir  way home, and while on their way  to the vessels were sandbagged and  robbed, being left destitute.  Gomez too Slow.  Havana, September 13.���General  Maximo Gomez aud senor Salvador  Cisneros Betancourfc have been in  frequent consultation since the  Jatter's return from the Uuited  States, and ifc is understood the object of their conferences is to convert general Gomez from a lethargic to an aggressive attitude. Havana will consider the advisability  of a quarantine against Vera Cruz,  where the mortality is large. : The  recent heavy rains are conducive to  its spread. All the United States  troops have been removed from  La Cabanas to Triscornia camp.  The customs receipts at the port of.  Havana last Saturday were $74,400.  Run on a Brazilian Bank.

of Nelson was held last evening for,
the purpose of selecting delegates
to attend the nominating conven-

chosen to contest Yale-Cariboo with
W. A. Galliher, the Liberal candidate.

the work of selecting delegates a
large number who were not hitherto identified with the local organization were given an opportunity
to sign the roll, which they did.
The chairman then announced
that upon the membership of the
association six delegates would be
entitled to vote in the convention,

necessary, but eventually the honor
devolved upon J. E. Annable, Jacob
Dover, W. E. McCandlish, alderman
Morrison, Fred Sfcarkey and John
Houston, M. P. P.
The delegates were not instructed, save that the six will vote as a
unit, so that they are free to sup-
the strongest man whose name may
come before the convention.
