" Nkw York, September 5.���A dispatch to the Journal and Advertiser from Berlin says:  A very serious quarrel has broken out between the czar and his  aunt, the grand duchess of Vladimir, which has had the result of  causing hor husband, the grand  duke, to tender the resignation of  liis office as commander of the  metropolitan district of St. Petersburg and of the imperial guard.  The whole trouble, which has not  only set all Russian society by the  ears, but has also perturbed several  foreign courts, including that of  emperor William, is due to a question of baccarat and roulette. Last  spring the czar, alarmed by the extraordinary increase of the scandals ac court, in society, iu the  army and even among the high  clergy, due to high play, issued an  edict strictly forbidding baccarat  or roulette.  This ukase followed almost immediately tho startling discovery  made by Nicholas that the chapter  of one of the principal churches of  the metropolis had pawned the  church plate and jewels to pay  gambling debts contracted at baccarat aud roulette. The array and  clergy immediately ceased all play.  Society has treated the ukase much  akin to derision, and has been led  by duchess Vladimir. The latter,  the only foreigu lady who has declined to change the faith in which  she was reared for that of her husband on marriage to a Russian duke,  is passionately addicted to games  of this character. To her is due  the introduction of the roulette  table as an article of furniture in  the . salons of most of the palaces  and mansions of St. Petersburg,  and the edict of her nephew in no  w;ay modified her openly proclaimed  determination to visit no house and  to attend no entertainment where  roulette and baccarat were not  provided for her amusement.  On discovering the manner in  which his orders were defied and  the pare the grand duchess has  played .in the matter the czar iu-  tituf^fed .to her that unless she set  an example of obedience to his request he would reluctantly be compelled to visit her' with a public  token to liis displeasure by banishing her for a time from court and  depriving her of the use of imperial  liveries and imperial honors.  BRITISH ADMIRAL'S REPORT  On Pekin Advance.  London, September ' 5.���The  British admiralty has issued vice-  admiral Seymour's detailed report  of the experiences of the first Pekin  relief expedition. It is good reading  but embraces nothing not previously known.  Referring to the harmonio_us_ac__  tion of   the   forces   of   the   eight  nationalities engaged, he- especially  mentions captain von Usedom, of  the German navy, and captain Mc-  Calla of the United States navy.  Regarding   the    latter    he    says:  ^���'"Captain McCalla was of the great-  $��� est value to me and  to all con-  l'i cerned.    He was slightly wounded  in   three   places   and   well merits  recognition."   The report concludes  as  follows: "When the fact that  the Chinese beheaded any one they  captured is considered the conduct  of such officers or men as exposed  themselves   to   capture   is. to   be  praised far more than if the risk  were taken against a civilized foe."  Annexed to the report are copies  of letters sent to the, senior officer  of each nationality engaged.   Most  of these are complimentary notes,  identical for the greater part, but  each ending with a paragraph referring particularly to the officers  with the expedition.     That to rear  admiral  Kempff runs as :follows:  "I cannot conclude my letter without expressing to you, sir, the high  admiration I have for captain McCalla, who accompanied ns in command   of   your officers   and   men.  Their post was usually in the advance guard, where their zeal and  "go" were praised by all.    I regret  to state that captain McCalla was  wounded in three places, but con-  i| sidering the gallant way in which  *  he   exposed   himself,   I   am    only  .equally surprised and thankful that  ._ie is alive. Had he been thoroughly  British he could not have stood by  pie more loyally in every way and  carried out more promptly any  wish I expressed. I may indeed  say the same of all those of his  command. I hail this experience  as further proof of the good feeling  so happily existing between our  nations."  TWO WEDDINGS YESTERDAY  McLeod-Irvme.  Sfc.' Saviour's church was the  scene of a pretty and fashionable  wedding at high noon yesterday,  the participants being Miss Catherine MeLeod and Herbert T. Irvine of the firm of F. Irvine & Co.  The function was witnessed by  hundreds of citizens.  The church was handsomely  decorated. Over the altar hung a  great floral bell with streamers of  white ribbon and the chancel was  ornamented lavishly with sweet  peas and carnations. About the  pillars of the church Oregon grape  vines were entwined, while the  centre isle was closed to the public  by barriers of white satin ribbons.  The arrival of the bridal party  was signaled by the opening strains  of Meddelssohn's march. The bride  leaned on the arm of her brother,  Harry MeLeod, and was charni?  ingly attired in white duchesse  satin trimmed with real lace and  chiffon, the bodice being hand embroidered. The veil was of white  tulle fastened with the groom's  present, a diamond aud pearl  brooch. She was proceeded by two  flower girls, Misses Bessie Forin and  Edith Williamson of Sandon who  were attired in white, and her  bridesmaid Miss Jennie MeLeod,  who wore white liberty silk and a  picture hat trimmed with ostrich  plumes. The groom was assisted  by Harry Wright, mining recorder.  The ushers were James Williamson and R. A. Creech of Sandon and  James Green and Dr. Stoddard of  Nelson. At the altar the bride was  giveu away by her brother.  After the ceremony the bridal  party drove to the residence of the  bride's mother on Silica street,  where a reception was held. The  bride was the recipient of-a handsome array of wedding gifts. The  groom's gifts to the bridesmaids  were gold bracelets and. to the  ushers nugget scarf pins.  Mr. and Mrs. Irvine left on the  afternoon train for' Portland,  whence they will go to San Francisco.  O'Reilly-Fox.  At 9 o'clock yesterday morning  Miss Mary O'Reilly of this city was  united in the bonds of matrimony  to John B. Fox in the church of  Mary Immaculate, Rev. father Ferland officiating. The ceremony  was witnessed by a number of the  friends of the0 contracting parties,  who are well known and popular  young people. The bride wore  white silk organdie over white  pean-de-soie, with a bridal veil and  _orauge_Jblossoms.=_=���The���costume  was adorned with a train' and ribbon trimmings, and the bride carried a bouquet of orange blossoms.  She was accompanied by her brother, Martin O'Reilly, who gave  the bride away. The bridesmaid  was a sister, Miss Nellie O'Reilly,  who wore lavender silk organdie  over white silk, with black velvet  trimmings, a picture hat, and carried a bouquet.  The groom was supported by J.  E. Angrigon of New Denver, the  ushers being J. O. Patenaude and  T. J. Seanlon. During the ceremony Mrs. C. A. Caldwell sang and  the choir of the church assisted in  the musical service.  A wedding breakfast was served  at the. residence of M. O'Reilly,  Hall street, in the course of which  the_health of the happy couple was  enthusiastically toasted. Mr. and  Mrs. Fox will reside on the north  side of Carbonate street, between  Josephine and Hall streets, where a  reception took place last night.  The Ashanti Trouble.

St. John, New Brunswick, September 5.���Ben Robertson, of Slocan  City was married here today to  Miss Laura Stanley Lane of this  city.  DETAILS OF PEKIN  SIEGE  Furnished By Mail Letters.  Victoria, September 5.���Mail  letters dealing with the fall of Pekin are now beginning to arrive  here from Chinese ports. One correspondent, in describing the bombardment of the legations, says  that on an average of 400 shells a  day were fired into the defences for the first three weeks  of the bombardment. Buckets-  fnl of bullets were gathered in  the legation grounds. During  the greater part of the siege 414  people lived in the compound, and  304 marines and 65 volunteers,  commanded by captain Poole,; defended the place. Eleven civilians  were killed and nineteen wounded ;  54 marines and soldiers were -killed  and 112 wounded.  The attack on the legations was  the strongest from July 17th to  July 25th. At the latter date a  nominal truce was made with, the  Tsung Li Yamen and extended to  August 3rd, although the Chinese  repeatedly violated it. There was  considerable rifle fire from August  3rd to August '11th, and then the  Chinese mounted smooth bores.  The mainstay of the besieged was  an old gun used by the British in  1860, which was found in' a junk  shop by Mitchell and a United  States gunner. This was mounted  on a Russian carriage found by an  Italian. Ammunition was fitted to  it, and it was called the Interna-  tional^gun.  The Chinese admit that they lost  at. least 3000 during the siege. The  foreigners did not waste their  ammunition, shooting only when a  target offered. The Chinese method  was a continuous,' heavy aud indiscriminate fire. They would frequently advance to the barricades  at night,- creeping up with their  arms filled with bricks, and in the  morning the besieged would find a  new wall a few feet closer. They  were so close finally that the enemy  could be heard talking. During the  last two nights the Chinese could  be heard urging tlieir men to charge  the foreigners and exterminate  them before the relief came. - The  Chinese soldiers replied that they  could not stand the bayonets. The  night before the relief they fired  about four thousand rounds.  The relief of Pekin was a notable  achievement, chiefly for the forced  march of four independent armies  over a single, difficult road and in  sickening weather. The opposition  offered by the Chinese dwindled  steadily each day after the fights  at Tei Tsang and Yang Tsun, until  the relieving columns were in sight  of the city. The defence of the  city, considering the possibilities of  the case, was accordingly weak.  The Japanese were still hammering  away at the wall of the northeast  section when the letter was dispatched. It was thought that the  Chinese concentrated their forces  there and thus gave   the British  and Americans an easy entrance.    Speaking~bf"the entrance of-the  Americans, another correspondent  says: They advanced along the left  canal under cover, the 14th infantry  leading, with the Oth infantry and  the marines following. Captain  Reilly planted a battery on a hill  and shelled a pagoda near the Che  Hua gate until the infantry got  close in. The ,14th regiment was  extended under cover before the  wall about 300 yards away. Company E then went forward under  the fire of the sharpshooters and  scaled the corner of the gate, and  lieutenant Gohn. planted the regimental flag. The regiment then  crowded with the Russians through  the gate unopposed.  The last five days marching for  the relief column was the worst.  The thermometer was often over  100 degrees. The country was deep  with sand, and the march led  through shadeless fields of tall corn.  The Japanese possessed the strongest endurance, and, being provided  with the best transport, they made  the pace. The British and Americans were pushed to keep up. General Fukusima, of the Japanese,  said his troops could have reached  Pekin two days before he did. And  this was taken as granted. They  never seemed to rest. Their cavalry and scouting parties were  threshing the country ahead on  their * flanks, and their outposts  kept in constant contact with the  enemy.        The Throne is Safe.     '  Chicago, September 5.���A dispatch to the Record from Moscow  says:    A report from Teheran says  that after a desperate fight Ali  Mahomet Bey, the i-ebel who has  been trying to get possession of the  Persian throne, has been defeated  by the Cossacks hastily summoned  to oppose his march pn the capital  and has been thrown into an underground dungeon. When captured  he emphatically denied that he had  harbored auy intention of usurping  the shah's throne.  THERE WILL BE NO CLASH  VICTORIANS HAVE RETURNED  Received With Honors.  Victoria, September   5.���Frank  Finch-Smiles,    J. _��� W.   Jones,, and  Arthur Carter, three of Victoria's  volunteers   who    lef'-  for   South  _f}      * --  Africa with the firs,, contingent,  have returned home,. and were received with great enthusiasm. The  men were invalided home but saw  a great'_ deal" of fighting during  their stay in South. Africa.  Private J. W. Jones was in the  thick of the Paardberg battle. He  saw captain Arnold receive his  death wound. Jones was only a  few feet away at the time. The  bullet was the deadly explosive,  and it rendered the' officer unconscious instantaneously;.-He lingered  for three days and dicii to the deep  sorrow of all the Canadians.. On  the same day, February 18th,:- four  Victoria comrades, ,Monroe, Summers, Todd and Scott met their  death. In all, the Canadian casualties that day, including killed and  wounded, were about 80. The  fighting commenced on the 18th and  lasted for nine days when Cronjie  surrendered. Private Jones was a  witness of the surrender. In the  Paardberg .fighting tbe Canadians  were associated with the Corn walls,  Shropshires and, Gordon -Highlanders, all of whoni were brave  fighters and good comrades.  Private Frank Finch-Smiles also  was in the Paardeburg fight, but  did not see so much of it as did  Jones, as he was struck down in the  memorable charge of the .18th.  While rushing towards the enemy's  lines a Mauser bullet hit him in the  right knee and caused a-bad wound.  Careful nursing, however;- I'esulfced  in no serious consequences, and the  injured limb is now nearly as well  as ever. The battle started at 0:30  in the morning, just as the men  were sitting "down to breakfast.  Suddenly they heard the rattle of  the rifles and were then quickly  got into line. It was the first experience of the Canadians and they  were eager to meet the foe. Ifc was  about eight o'clock when private  Finch-Smiles received his wound  and was taken to the hospital tent.  Before this engagement they were  on several wild-goose chases, bnt  had not seen the enemy.  Private Arthur Carter had the  honor of taking part in the capture  of the Sunnyside laager, where the  Canadians so greatly distinguished  themselves in their first encounter  with tbe enemy. Private Carter  was the only westerner to engage^  "in-wl_a��"Kipling would term the  "little affair." He was on transport  duty at the time, and so got  separated from his company. He  rushed the laager along with C  (Toronto) company. Private Carter  was in general Smith-Dorien's  division and got as far as Jacobsdal  before being stricken down with  enteric fever.  CALLIHER WAS NOMINATED  As the Liberal Candidate.  Revelstoke, September 5.���  [Special to The Tribune]���At the  Liberal convention held here today  W. A. Galliher received the unan-  aimous nomination. The convention was representative of the entire  riding. There was a strong feeling  in favor of Hewitt Bostock, the  present member, but he resolutely  declined to allow his name to go  before the convention. The nomination of Galliher did not come as  a surprise as he was generally regarded as a likely candidate.  Fay Day for the Sailors.  Bar Harbor, Maine, September  6.���This was reception day for the  officers of the British and American  squadron, and pay day for almost  all of the Jackies. The feature of  the day was the reception during  the afternoon on board the United  States flagship New York. The  two admirals Farquhar and Bedford  with tlieir staff in full uniform  received the guests.  Between the Powers.  Washington,    September    5.���  Within the last twenty-four hours  tho United States government has  received from its representatives at  foreign capitals much material information in regard to the attitude  of the powers on the Russian proposal  to evacuate   Pekin.     These  give the nature of the responses  made by Russia to certain of the  powers.     It   is  stated   authoritatively that if there was   at   any  time a prospect of a serious international'   clash   this    has    been  very largely, if not wholly removed  by the harmonions character of the  communications, the several   governments are making.    The exact  nature of the responses is not made-  public by the state department, for  there are yet some replies to be  transmitted, and until all of them  are in the negotiations are considered in such an incomplete form  that they will not be made public.  It is said, however, that the answers go much beyond the tentative  character of those   heretofore referred to, aiid are of a conclusive  nature, so far as showing the purposes of the governments, although  they may not be regarded as conclusive as to the particular proposition advanced by Russia.   The responses are understood to be rather  long and somewhat argumentative,  similar in this respect to the American responses.    On the whole, the  general tendency of the responses  is such as to give entire satisfaction  ��� here as to the course of the negotiations.  The satisfactory progress of the  negotiations along these lines has  had the effect of directing attention to the personality of the  envoys who probably will represent  the powers in China in the final  settlement. The impression prevails  here that Mr.' Conger is eminently  fitted for such a task on fche part of  United States. Mr. RockhilPs name  is mentioned as an alternate, in case  Mr. Conger does hot care to.remain'  in Pekin. to participate in. -the  settlement.  If the present state of < affairs in  China is protracted until the arrival  there of field marshall count von  Waldersee, which should occur in  about ten days or a fortnight, it is  nofc to be doubted thafc the government of Germany will endeavor to  have all the negotiations with the  Chinese government conducted  through that official as a representative not of Germany alone, but of  all the powers. It is gathered that  strong arguments will be advanced  to support the advisability of combined action through one agency in  this manner as the best means of  securing a speedy and generally  satisfactory termination of the  Chinese trouble. The German  foreign office appears tobeactive in  furthering the negotiations, and  quite a number of messages have  pass_e_d__betw_een_JWashiugton_and-  Berlin.  Those persons supposed to have a  correct understanding of Germany's  attitude look for the suggestion of  a compromise or middle course,  which will be neither an acceptance  nor a rejection of the Russian proposal, but will be such a satisfactory middle ground that all the  powers, including Russia, can agree  to it.. In another diplomatic quarter  the strong belief is expressed that  the requisite compromise will be  found by China re-establishing a  government aud naming peace commissioners. Official intimations  have reached Washington that  steps are now being taken towards  the appointment of such a peace  commission, including Li Hung  Chang, the viceroys of Nankin and  Wu Chang.and princeChing, though  reports also have named Yung Lu  and Hsi Tung in place of the two  pacific viceroys. But while there  is doubt as to the persounel of the  commission, it is quite generally  accepted among officials that some  such move on the part of China has  matured and will take form in  Washington very soon. In that  event it is believed by diplomatic  officials that the entire status of  the negotiations between the  powers might be changed, and thafc  Russia no longer would feel impelled to insist upon the withdrawal of her minister and troops  from Pekin, as all these matters  would be subjects for the commission itself to deal with. It is  pointed out also that in the six  days since the Russian-American  notes were given to the world the  sentiment has been growing stead  ily in favor of continuing the presence of the troops at Pekin.  In view of the declarations made  iii the American reply to Russia,  some question has arisen as to the  course open to this country in case  of a compromise or change in the  present diplomatic status. It is  said that the attitude of the United  States is particularly favorable for  adapting itself to any- change in  change in conditions. Only in the  one contingency of Russia's withdrawing her minister and troops  has the United States government  given the positive declaration that  the American troops" also will be  withdrawn. But on the many conditions which may arise, either  through counter proposition from  the powers or a modification of  Russia's original purpose, the  United States has left its course  open for future determination.  RUSSIAN PROPOSALALTERED  Ministers Only to Withdraw.  London, September 0.���Sir Alfred  Gasalee's dispatch, which shows  that the situation in Pekin was  unchanged on August 29th is the  only Chinese news this morning.  The cancellation of the order holding back the fourth Indian brigade  is regarded as important.' It shows  that whatever the outcome of the  Russian policy, the British government is determined to have sufficient troops' on the spot adequately  to protect British interests. Considerable significance is attached to  the statement by the Journal de St.  Petersburg as possibly indicating  a modification of Russian policy.  This paper is the organ of the Russian foreign office, its editor being a  councillor of state. It is noted  while the Journal de St. Petersburg  announces Russia's determination  to maintain the solidarity of tiie  powers, it only mentions the withdrawal of the ministers, and not of  the troops to Tien-Tsin. It is -believed the powers might agree to  such a modification of the original  Russian proposal.    SN      .,  London, : September 0. ��� The  Vienna correspondent of the Times,  discussing the situation, declares  that Japan has a strong disposition  to act in harmony with the Unite'd  States on the Chinese question. A  Shang-Hai dispatch announces that  German troops will land there  today (Thursday). Curiously  enough they will be located in  barracks adjoining the residence of  Li Hung Chang. United States  consul Goodnow, according to the  Daily News, says there, never was  any necessity for landing troops at  Shang-Hai. According to a Hong  Kong dispatch, dated yesterday,  Canton is more disturbed. Native  shops dealing in foreign goods have  been looted and sinister rumors  ���prevail.  The Cutch Wreck.  Vancouver, September 5.���Captain Newcombe, of the wrecked  steamer_Cutch,-and-several-of���the-  crew have arrived home. Captain  Newcombe declines to talk for publication before he makes his official  report tothecompany. He,however,  made the statement that the second mate was in charge when the  steamer was run on shoal rocks at  11:30 at night. The rocks are  plainly marked in the chart. Captain Newcombe was asleep at the  time of the accident. After getting  the passengers ashore and looking  after their comfort, he proceeded to  Skagway and chartered a steamer  to take the passengers there, so thafc  tho accident delayed the passengers  a very short time on their  journey. The cargo is a total loss,  as it is all under water and  consists chiefly of provisions and  clothing. It is evident that  Captain Newcombe must have conveyed favorable news to Mr. Darling, manager of the Union Steamship Company, for Mr. Darling says  that he expects to see the Cutch in  Vancouver in three weeks' time,  and adds that the Cutch can stand  more ill usage, owing to her build,  than any boat on the coast.  Will Treat Them as Rebels.  New York, September 5.���The  London correspondent of the  Tribune says that since lord  Robert's annexation of the Transvaal, it is generally regarded at  home and in South Africa that the  war is practically over. The Stock  Exchange takes this view. The  effect of the proclamation will be  to cause all Transvaal burghers  now in arms to be treated as rebels  and to cause them to forfeit belligerent rights.  MATTERS AT A STANDSTILL  In Amateur Athletics.  During  the  past    three   weeks  practically no  progress  has been  made in connection with the proposed   Amateur  Athletic Assoeia-,  tion, and it is apparent that the.  organization will not be a success .  under the present auspices. ' "  - When the association was formed -  a mistake was made in appointing"  certain officers who were not .con- -  suited in advance.    The result off"-  this was that it became almost im-'.  possible to obtain a meeting of theT? },#���?&  officers, some of whom have never'J;--^v|$  attended a.meeting though advised'  in abundant time. .  The principal matter which the  officers of the new association havd  to grapple with was the collection  of   membership fees.     Lists   were-  made out and placed in the hands:'  of four members of the executive';  committee for collection.   The re-7  sponse netted from $150 to $175;  At this juncture the workers beri  came convinced that unless some ;  change was made no further pro-;  gress could be' accomplished,'' and *  confined their efforts to interview-,.-  ing     members   and    ascertaining  whether or.not their fees would be -  forthcoming.   . - - 7-;;  Two courses are now open to the-  association.   ' If a complete reor-'.  ganization is carried out and a set -  of officers elected who.will co-operate, the association may be placed  on its feet again and successfully  floated.   The-alternative is to return the fees paid to date, allow,  the project to fall, flat, and to add  another    tombstone'   to   the   lot;  where a previous undertaking of a"  similar nature is buried.  7-'" I  ���P  "tt,1  ' ^t-i  '.���{'��� I  ?'��5_.  .���"rS#��l  7:-#��i  'X'sd  "...   -.r.l  ��� i.   .

Cape Town, September 5.���Tho  siege of Ladybrand has been  raised after soveral desperate  attempts to capture the town and  its garrison of 1500 British troops.  The Boers who attacked Ladybrand are reported to have numbered over 2000 men. The British  were summoned to surrender on  September 2nd, but refused, and  from that time on were subject to  a continual cannon and rifle fire.  The burghers twice tried to rush  the British position.  Maseru, Basutoland, September  5.���The Boers left Ladybrand last  evening. They looted the stores  and took all the horses, including  the cavalry mounts. The British  casualties Avere five wounded.  Band May Visit England.  Victoria, September 5.���There is  every likelihood that arrangements  will bo made in the near future  whereby the Fifth Regiment band  under the leadership of J. M. Finn  will be able to start on the proposed tour of Eastern Canada and  England. If permission is obtained  from tho militia department at  Ottawa for the baud to go on the  trip, it will be largely augmented  by the arrival of a number of excellent musicians from the Sound  cities aud San Francisco.  i'7.-al  ... ~ ,���-/,..]  ' ' ���'4sh_  , 'tsi  7-7^-1  ��� 'y tt->Ji\  vm  . 1*1  ��� ''.^  ���..' r THE TEIBTJNE:  NELSON B.

How  completely     the     Liberals     have  changed front upon the question of  free   trade   versus    protection    is  shown   not   only by the  present  tariff but by the speeches which its  leading members are now making  throughout . Ontario.   By many it  has been claimed that the present  government was approaching the  goal of free trade by the only sensible route, by gradual reductions  in the tariff, but that the progress  ���was no less slow than sure.   This  reasoning, howeArer satisfying it  may have; been to the uncompro  mising -Liberals of the old school, is  now being dispelled by the leaders.  Speaking the other day, in Toronto, premier Koss boldly burned  his bridges behind him, and made a  strong protection speech. He said  the time had come when Canada  should work up its forest and mineral wealth into finished products  rather than continue the policy of  exporting raw materials. Premier  Ross concluded his remarks in the  following significant terms: "You  " may rest assured that so far as I  " may be able to contribute to this  " end, during the remainder of my  " public life, whatsoever energy I  " possess shall be applied in that  " direction. While it is gratifying  " to see our export tables enlarged  " by the sale of natural products,  " it would be still more gratifying  " to see them enlarged by the val-  " ues of such products enhanced by  " Canadian skill and labor." With  the tariff issue removed, what  divides   the   two   parties   save   a  question of ins and outs!'  i ' ��� . -. ���  W. A. Galliher of this city wil  be the Liberal candidate for Yale-  Cariboo in the approaching federal  election. At the Liberal convention  held at Revelstoke yesterday he  received a unanimous nomination,  which in itself was a fitting tribute  to his popularity. In Mr. Galliher  the Liberals* will have about the  strongest candidate that the constituency could produce.  The speeches that were made at  the recent banquet of the manufacturers in Toronto are now receiving  their political complexion from the  newspapers, but the great point  made appears to have been lost  sight of. What the manufacturers  complained of most was their treat-  =ment=by-the=railway=companies=rin-  the matter of rates. The development of manufactures is of more  importance to the country than the  temporary swelling of railway dividends, but the scant attention given  to the matter by the political press  suggests that the parties have  alliances to make and to retain  which weigh more with them than  the general prosperity of the  country.      .  Lord Roberts has formerly annexed thgr Transvaal, but the war  will not be over until colonel Sam  Hughes completes his chapter of the  war's history.    The author prom  ises that the famous Hughes letters  will be mild reading compared with  his treatment of liis detractors in  the forthcoming history. The  Hughes history will be ready for  the press in two or three weeks  after the author's return from  London.      EDWARD   BLAKE.  That Edward Blake has added to  his list of political failures in Great  Britain, is the opinion of his staunch  friend aud admirer, editor Pirie of  the Dundas Banner. In describing  Blake's position in London the Canadian newspaper man says:  He has a law practice here, and  his son is associated with him, but  it seems a pity that he should be  wasting his time here when he  could be so much better apjireciated  in his own country. For there is  no disguising the fact that he is not  appreciated here. I have always  felt that Mr. Blake was one of the  ablest, if not the ablest man that  Canada has ��>roduced, but iu politics  over here he is wasting himself. I  was in the house of commons the  other day, and heard a discussion  over a bill affecting Irish affairs, in  which two Irish members, Swift  MacNeil and T. P., O'Connor, were  taking part. Well, Tay Pay and  Swift; MacNeill were hammering  away at this bill, finding all the  fault they could, as it was a government bill,, and their duty was to  pick holes in it.  Then Edward Blake took a hand  and gave his Irish colleagues a lift.  It sounded odd to hear his voice in  the imperial parliament, as I had  of ten heard it in our own house of  commons, but here it carried ho  such weight as it did in Canada.  He made his protest against some  clause of the bill, but no notice was.,  taken  of   it  and   the clause   was  DEBENTURES  FOR SALE  Xif  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  iti  to  to  to  to  to  iti  iti  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  iti  to  w  ���g'g'g,1!_'t>'gr,g.,g.,iS_.'-_.,SC'{_l,g.,j_.,__;^-g:  -s-_>-_��'_��->_.-_��-^.!^->..>_.._s._s.__��._gK._^.^.^.^.^.^.^.��^.^.^.>^.^.^.^  FRED  IRVINE &  CO.

It is doing no injustice  to Mr. Blake to say that Mr. Blake  is engaged in ;a wild-goose chase  and that home rule for Ireland is  really further off now than it was  when he left Canada and came' over  to England to help it along. Even  among the Irish members themselves they speak of him as being  too cold and distant to be a leader  of men. especially men of the impulsive blood of the Irish race.  Physically he looks well, mentally  he is as vigorous as ever.  D.J.DEWAR,J.P.  Notary Public���Conveyancer.  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B. C.  FOB SALE.

H The ride of Jim Watts is fib to  go dowu in history beside that of  Paul Revere, for he saved the lives  of the foreigners in Tien-Tain.   In-  . stead of peaceful colonists to whom  to deliver his message of warning,  it was Watt's duty to ride sixty  miles through., a hostile country  teeming with savages ready to submit him to slow torture. When  the Boxers, after two days of bombardment, had almost succeeded  in     overcoming     the     foreigners  , in Tien-Tsin, nine men of  tho legations started for Taku  in a boat. Later in the day  came back the word that the boat  had been run aground and the nine  men killed. Later it proved that  this report was not true, though  the boat had been run ashore and  the nine men scattered and obliged  to flee for their lives to escape the  fury of the Boxers. The result in  either case was the same���no word  , of warning had reached Taku,  where the foreign gunboats lay,  and from which place alone succor  could come to beleaguered Tien-Tsin.  When the report came that the  other messengers had been killed,  Jim Watts volunteered to ride to  Taku. Watts was born in China  twenty-two years ago, the son of a  Taku pilot, and he is brave as a  lion. The foreigners insisted that  the youth be accompanied by three  Cossacks, and, though Watts preferred to make the ride alone, he  allowed himself to be prevailed  upou. It was just afc nightfall when  he left Tien-Tsin.    The city was  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  blazing behind him, and some shells  passed perilously near. He left the  place noiselessly, but as soon as he  was out in the open country he put  spurs to his horse and fairly flew.  Again and again shots came  whizzing over his head,andbefore he  arrived atT(Ucu^onear^was^swiBg__  his side.    Chinese  ^ingTuselessiy at"  rail but and tried to seize his bridle,  but he swung his whip vigorously,  and in the dark many a native was  kuocked down by the horse's flying  feet. Arrived at Taku, Watts did  not lose a moment, but, securing a  small boat, put out to admiral  Kempff's flagship, and his message  was the first news the admiral had  that the foreigners at Tien-Tsin  were in any serious danger. The  world knows the rest of the story.  Tien-Tsin was saved, and Watts  returned to the city with the allied troops on tho 23rd of June,  marching in with the Welsh Fusileers. He was cheered on all sides.  Watts, who was a private in the  local volunteer company, was at  once made a first lieutenant, and  will probably be given a medal by  the>foreign powers.  THE  TICHBOENE  DOLE.  The ancient manor of Tichborne  lies near Winchester. Two hundred years prior to the Norman  conquest this manor was known as  Itchenborne, because within its  borders rose the river Itchen.  Shortly after the first Plantagenet  ascended the throne sir Roger de  Tichborne, knight, married Mabel,:  only daughter and heiress of sir  Ralph de Lamerston of the Isle of  Wight. After many years of  godly living and kindness to the  poor, lady Mabel, realizing that she  was near to death, besought sir  Roger to bestow upon her the  necessary means to enable her to  leave a loaf of bread to all applicants on Annunciation day, forever.

LAY, Manager.  grant the request, except under a  condition extremely hard for his  wife;'-who had been bedridden for  many years. He said, in effect:  "Tomorrow will be Christmas. All  the land from yonder oak tree that  you can traverse north and east  While the morning yjilejgg_btirus_l  will enclose within parallel lines  cori'esponding on the south and  west, and it shall be your own."  The following morning lady  Mabel was borne to one. corner of  the park, and, at the lighting of the  Yule log, commenced her painful  task. Before the cry came from the  hall that the,log was in ashes she  had won a tract of fifteen acres of  rich land, known as "The Crawls,"  in memory of her painful task. The  land was surveyed and- deeded to  lady:Mabel, but her heroic deed had  hastened her end. A few hours  later the parish priest was summoned to prepare her for death.  While awaiting his coining she  called her household around her  and prophesied that the house of  De Itchenborne would prosper as  long as the dole to the poor should  be continued, but that if it were  ever neglected the family name  would be lost for the want of male  issue, and that in such event the  baronet of the day would be the  father of seven sons, the eldest of  whom would have seven daughters, ]  but no sons. She then accepted  the ministrations of her confessor,  and died. . _r  Through more than six centuries  of sunshine and shadow the house  of Tichborne continued at Annunciation to distribute the dole. During  the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries 600 loaves were baked on the  day preceding Annunciation. This  number grew in time to 1000, 1500  and 2000 loaves. In the eighteenth  century more than 3000 loaves and  from ��65 to ��90 in money were distributed annually.  Though for more than 000 years j  this charity fed the poor for one  day in the year, kept its foundress  in pious memory, and furnished to  other wealthy families an example  worthy of emulation, its distribution became at length an intolerable  burden. Tichborne park became in  mid-Lent the rendezvous of tramps,  beggars, ' costermongers, pickpockets, sneak thieves and acrobats,  Avho camped in extemporized shelters all over the fields and gardens-  of the manor.  With the distribution in 1799 the  dole was discontinued. By a strange  coincidence, in 1821 lady Mabel's  prophecy was partially fulfilled, for  in that year the head of the family  died, leaving seven sons. The eldest  succeeded to the baronetcy, and  =died=ini==1845r==leaving====fsevetf  daughters. He was succeeded by  his eldest brother, who, on his marriage in 1826 with Miss Doughty, a  Lincolnshire heiress, had taken the  name of Doughty Tichborne. At  the death of his only son, iu 1835,  Mr. Doughty-Tichborne, impressed  by the singular fulfillment of lady  Mabel's prophecy, ..besought his  elder brother to restore the dole.  This was done, with certain restrictions, confining it to the poor of the  parish of Tichborne., In this manner it continues to be distributed  to the present day.  Edison's Greatest Rival.  Nikola Tesla is Edison's great  rival in the world of American invention. He is a Servian and was  born in 1857. After a period with  the Servian Telegraph-Department  he went to Paris as an electrical engineer and then to America, where  he was employed by Edison. He  soon started out for himself, and  erected the Tesla Laboratory in  New York for independent electrical research. His most remarkable  invention was that which is adopted  in the appartus used to harness the  power of Niagara Falls, but he is  the inventor of many other improvements in dynamos, coils and  lamps. He says that his new invention will abolish death through  "live wires."  MONEY TO LOAN  A FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.

The Nelson rifle company drills  tonight at the armory on Baker  street. The strength of the company was twenty at the last parade  and this will doubtless be increased |  tonight by further recruits.  Cane & Macdonald are drawing  plans for a dwelling house and  store on Front street to be erected  by E. B. McDermid at a cost of  $2000.  It is reported that silver tip bears  have appeared in unusual numbers  on the upper stretches of Sandy  creek, and that a couple of prospectors were driven out of the  neighborhood a' day or two ago by  their attentions. 'r.        .-. ���   .  General superintendent R. Marpole of the C.P.R. is in the city  looking over the ground at the^ depot where the new station buildings  and tracks are under, way.' The  specifications for the union' depot  were-placed in the" hands of local  contractors yesterday, and the con- I  tracts -will toe closed  next week. J  The work is to be completed before  November 1st.  The fire department had a practice run to J. Y. Griffin & Company's warehouse on Front street  last night. The chemical apparatus  ���was not used but a couple of lines  of hose were laid in fast time.  An important strike is reported  from the Toronto claim, one of the  Venus group, on morning mountain.  Dr. Doolittle, manager of the  Venus, lias had several men working on the property, and a four foot  lead of good looking ore has been  uncovered. ,.  A bench warrant has been issued  for the arrest of A. E. Faefreitsch,  who kept a refreshment stand at  Lakeside park. He was snmmonsed  to appear before magistrate Crease  yesterday on the charge of selling  liquor without a license, but failed  to attend.  Edward C. Senkler, gold commissioner in the Yukon, spent yesterday renewing old friendships in the  city. Mr. Senkler is returning  north after spending some time in  the east.  E..R. Purdy, of Bradstreets local  agency, returned from Rossland  last evening.  The council of the board of trade  last evening decided to send a  mineral exhibit to the Spokane  fr.uit fair. The exhibit will be in  charge, of W. H. Dowsing. It is  proposed to defray the cost of the  exhibit by passing the hat among  the merchants.  Local Liberals are inclined to  believe the statement credited to  Hon. Clifford Sif ton, that there will  be no general ' election this fall.  Sometime in December is the latest  date guessed at.  Trouble Over Board.  New Denver Ledge.  Trouble   has   been brewing for  some time at the Queen Bess.   It  broke on Sunday when the whole  force of 45  men walked down the  hill.   The men, complained   about  the   table-board   and,  wanted   a  change in  the .kitchen.   It is not  probable. the   mine will   be long  withont a force, for the management has always been looked upon  by the men as the most fair and  considerate.     It seems a piece of  rank foolishness for a force of 45  men to be forced to go down the  hill because of the inability of the  cook to set up a decent meal, and it  would seem that had the men acted  with more reason and less haste the  trouble could have been averted.  The fact that manager Scott has  always   treated his   men   well   is  sufficient ground for the belief that  he would have complied with the  demands of the men in this case  had they been made in a more conciliatory way.   But, when a few of  the disturbing element attempted  to dictate to the others and through  them to the management, it is time  they were given to understand who  is running the mine.   The property  will=resume���at^once^with^r^hew  cook and another force of men.  Gollom Takes Another Bond.  J. Frank Collom, who bonded the  Speculator group some days, ago,  has taken a bond on another Ten-  Mile property, the two-thirds interest in the Gertie R. fraction,  situated on the summit just above  the Speculator, and owned by John  Werely and Dan McPherson of New  Denver. The bond does uot carry  with it any work, but hinges on the  acceptability of the Speculator. If  the Speculator turns out according  to expectations the Gertie R will  be taken up. The price named for  the two-thirds interest is $0000, the  bond maturing ono year from date  thereof. W. C. Adams holds the  remaining interest, having purchased it from Pete Lindquist some  weeks ago.  Yesterday's Mining Eecords.  Yesterday's mining records were:  Transfers���the Viking King on the  west slope of Big Four mountain  and the King Sierre on west Rover  creek by T. O. Skatbo of Nelson to  John S.

London, September 5. ��� John  Hays Hammond, the American  mining engineer, sailed for Denver  on the Cunard line steamer Saxonia,  from Liverpool, yesterday. On the  result of his visit hangs the investment of a large aniount of British  capital in American mining properties. As the representative of a  syndicate composed of Wernherbelt  & Co. and J. B. Robinson, the South  African magnates, aud J. Pier pout  Morgan and other capitalists, Mr.  Hammond has gone to examine a  group of mines in Colorado. If he  reports favorably, it is asserted the  syndicate has agreed to purchase-  the mines referred to, the price  being $7,000,000.'  Political/Paragraphs.  Brantford, September 5.���C. B.
