Nkw York, September 23.���A  special to the Tribune from Washington says : Notes have been sent  to the powers clearly defining the  course this government has determined to pursue in the Chinese  situation. The Chinese government  must be promptly re-established  aiid enter into new channels with  adequate provision for reparation  and guarantees for ��� the future.  Most of the United States troops  are to be wifchdiawn from China  immediately. China will be compelled to punish her own culprits.  Jt is the belief of this government  that there is nothing to prevent  the beginning of negotiations without further delay, and that no occasion exists for the protracted continuance of troops on Chinese  territory. Co-operation with the  powers will be welcomed along  these lines. Tho United States  mu_t,\however, reserve the right to  act independently on any change  Wliich might lead to Avar with  Cliina. A memorandum will be  made public by the state department today' after the notes reach  their, -destination, giving a state-  ment'of the conditions now existing,  which will unmistakably demonstrate that the course of the United  States has been thoroughly consistent, and that nothing has succeeded  iu swerving the administration  from its determination not to become embroiled in any ulterior designs other nations may have upon  China.  According to the best available  specific in formation the government  announces its recognition of Li  Hung'Chang and prince Ching as  the plenipotentiaries of the emperor, Kwang Hsu, and has authorized minister Conger to open plena ty negotiations, the ��� United  States being prepared "at the same  time to appoint a committee to  meet the Chinese authorities, empowered _ to conclude - conventions  providing for past injuries and  guarantees for future security.  The United States will insist as "a  part of the reparation to bo demanded in the negotiations that  the Chinese authorities shall punish  the guilty with  deserved  severity.  The order for the reduction of  the military force under general  Chaffee has not yet been issued, but  it is admitted at the war department that it may go forward at  any moment. Secretary Jtoot has  already stated that preliminary orders were sent to general Chaffee  fully two weeks ago, directing him  just how to act in case he should  receive orders to withdraw <fom-  pletely or partially from- China,  and'it is expected that he has perfected arraiigeinentsand selected the  organizations which are to remain.  The considerable force of marines,  numbering about 1000 in all, which  has been operating under general  jOhafl'_6-'_-coininand1-are-fco-be-takou-  frohi-Taku to Cavite. Soino of the  number will be left aboard those  vessels of admiral Remey's command, which sent part of their  marine contingents to help out the  Iirst military expedition against  Pekin, and have not so far recovered  them. The remainder -will be" afforded Mi period of rest and recreation at Cavite.  The personnel of the commission  which is to represent tiie".United  States iu the final negotiations with  the Chinese authorities has not yet  been completed. Beyond the fact  that Mr. Conger is to be one of the  commissioners ifc >s <l matter of conjecture who will form the remainder  of the commission. There is reason  to believe that Seth Low, president  of the Columbia university New  York, either has been or will be requested to serve, as commissioner.  The intimation is conveyed, however, that the body will not be  finally completed within the next  week.  Ex-secretary John AV.' Foster,  ���who has just returned to Washington from his summer home in  New York, was a caller upon the  president, and it is believed that he  has also been in communication  with" Chinese authorities. These  facts.have led to the conclusion that  he is likely in some manner to be  connected with the Chinese negotiations. The place where the negotiations are to be hold has not yet  been definitely settled upon.  The Canadian Won It.  Baltimore, September 22���The  six days' paced bicycle race on the  Coliseum   "bowl"   track   between  Archie McEachern of Canada,  Burns Pierce of Fall River, Mass.,  and Henry Smith of this city, one  hour a night, ended tonight in a  victory for McEachern by a score  of 212 miles, ."> laps and 1(3 yards, to  212 miles, 1 lap and 140 yards for  Pierte. Smith was far in the rear.  On Wednesday night both the leaders broke all previous records for 5,  JO, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 miles.  KELSON MINES AN? MINING  Tramway for St. Eugene.  B. C. Riblet is constructing a tool  and timber tram at his Front street  factory, which will probably be the  first of its kind ever used in the  province. The outfit will be erected  at the St. Eugeno mine, and will be  a great improvement. At the St.  Eugene the tunnels open out on  the hill every few huudrcd feet for  1000 to 1500 feet, and blacksmith  shops are located at the mouths of  the principal tunnels. This necessitates a great Avasle of time in  carrying steel from the secondary  tunnels to the shops and back  again. In the winter the trouble  of packing steel and timber up and  down hill will be much greater, and  to overcome this, all the blacksmiths will be located at the bottom o_f the hill in one big shop.  The tramway Avill be operated by  air, which supplies the forges also,  and at certain hours daily the car  Avill be sent up to each tunnel,  loaded with the drills which require  sharpening or other Avork, sent to  the shops and then returned. In  this way the mine is supplied Avith  tools at the minimum outlay of  time. At other periods of the day  the tram Avill be used for conveying timber to the \rarious tunnels.  The outfit will be delivered at  the mine toward the end of October.  Mr. Riblet is also ' building a  special ore ear for the Poorman  mine.' It is to be used for conveying .ore from the mouth of the  "tunnel to the tramway^ and is) "intended to be drawn Avith another  car of similar design by horse  power on the company's surface  lino. The cai will hold several tons  of ore and is equipped Avith a  hopper bottom to facilitate handling.    A sample taken across the ledge  on the Birds Nye on Friday Avas  assayed on Saturday, and gave returns of $-!'!. Work i.s to be commenced on the property as soon as  arrangements can be closed. A  contract will be given in a day or  two for 25 feet of sinking on the  main shaft.  The foundations for the cyanide  plant at the Athabasca are about  completed. The ^erection ;of the  superstructure will not be as tedious a task and is to be pushed forward as rapidly as possible,  .1. T. Fluetot,_mann.ger of the syn_L  tlicato AvlTicli has taken over the  Wilcox group at Ymir, returned  last night after spending several  .days at the property. When the  weather clears a force of men Avill  be placed at Avork clearing a site  for a sawmill, the plant for which  will be on the ground within a few  weeks.. A large quantity of fine  timber is available on the Wilcox  gi'oup and this is to be turned into  lumber for future use. in addition  to pursuing development along the  line already taken, it is proposed to  commence a couple of additional  tunnels at an early date. The  buildings on the property are in  good condition and afford accqm-.  modation for 24 men. '  J. E. Saucier of Rossland, AA-as in  the city yesterday en route to the  Chapleau mine in Avhich he is largely interested.  Want Bristow Indicted.  New York, September 23.���A  Havana dispatch to the Evening  Post today says: The lawyers avIio  are defending Estes G. Rathbone,  the former director of posts, now on  bail, have asked the authorities here  for the indictment and extradition  of fourth assistant postmaster general Joseph L. Bristow. He is  charged AVith being technically  more culpable than Rathbone, because he has permitted the payment  of the salaries of Mr. Rathbone's  coachman, footman and gardener  out of the general treasury until  the end of May, after asking that  Rathbone be. prosecuted for this  offense. This is taken.here as a  sigh that Rathbone will fight the  administration to the bitter end.  MINERS STRIKE SPREADING  Operators Are Now Conferring.  Hazelton, P., September 23.���  There was absolutely no change in  the coal strike situation in the Lehigh region today and the customary quietude prevailed. Tonight  the presidents of three anthracite  districts, comprisisg the entire hard  coal field of Pennsylvania, had conference with president Mitchell for  the purpose of discussing the situation as it now prevails in the anthracite region.  Benjamin James, of the national  executive board, said today that he  expected the number of strikers  would be greatly increased tomorrow. He predicts that number of  mines whicli have been running  pretty full during the past week  willbe tied up completely tomorrow.  The butchers association, which  is composed of all meat dealers in  Hazelton and A'ieinity, has given  notice that beginning tomorrow  only a cash business Avill be done  because of the strike.  Shbnandoah, September 23.���An  air of expectancy Avas noticeable  among, people here today, and .although it would be difficult to find"  a more peaceful community,. the  opinion is freely expressed that tomorrow morning will witness a renewal of the riotous scenes of Friday. The superintendents of all  mine^ in the- vicinity:" of this city  and Shamokin today , reiterated  their intention of resuming operations tomorrow. The strikers, how-  eArer, declare they will not succeed,  at least in the Shenandoah mines.  Harrisburg, September 23.���The  situation, in the Sclmlkill strike  region is" very satisfactoiy to the  officers on duty at the National  Guard headqiiiirters in Harrisburg.  Their advices from there today  were that eveiy thing was quiet and  no serious trouble Avas anticipated.  Scranton, Pennsylvania, September^ 22.-^President Nicholls and  "the members of district No. 1 oxe-  cutiAre board are not .apprehensive  today of any change iu the strike  situation in this section by reason  of ordering of troops to the Schuylkill region. The news caused them  much chagrin and disappointment  because they had hoped for the best  of order there the same as prevailed  in this region. Now that troops  are in the field an uncertainty is  growing among miners here as to  their future. From Forest City,  Avhere the Hillside Coal & Iron  Company has two big mines, the  news comes that many meu are  dissatisfiel Avith the present status  of the strike and have announced  their intention to go back to work  on Monday.  GOSCHEN WILL DROP OUT  John Morley's Address.  turers, this morning signed tho  Avage scale that will be effective until July 1001. If is knoAvn as the  yearly scale, which takes effect  usually in July. - pwing to the unusual fluctuations of the market  the new scale had not been signed  Avhen the mills shut down on June  30th, and the conditions have been  unfavorable ever"since June, so that  the0 mills have been idle almost  three months. ''Some mills will  start tomorrow morning aud others  soon as possible. .'.This means employment tomorrow to over (iO.OOO  Avorking men avJio haA'e been idle  since June.  ���London, ��� September 23.���John  Morley, Liberal member for Mont-  roseburghs, in his manifesto declares his'opinion has not changed,  and that everything might have  been attained in South Africa  Avithout Avar. "Jn a single year,"  he says, "the work of a generation  in uniting the Dutch and English  in South. Africa has been undone,  and not even in Ireland has the  difficult race problem been more  miserably 'mishandled." Mr. Morley admits however, that it is impossible to revoke the proclamations of annexation.  The earl of Rosebery is issuing a  manifesto in the form of a letter to  Liberal candidate, in Avhich he says:  "Sn the present situation of the  world, I-would vote for any strong  administration, but the present  government is strong only in votes.  Sn other respects they are the  weakest goArernmeut I ean recollect." After enumerating the government's failures at home and.  abroad, lord Rosebery criticizes the  conduct of the South African war,  declaring that it has exposed England to humiliations unparallelled  in our history since''the American  war.y  George Goschen, first lord of the  admiralty, and. member for St.  George,. Hanover square, London,  announces that he will not seek reelection to parliament.  Iron Workers to Eesume Work.  Cincinnati, Ohio, September 23.���  The conference committee of the  amalgamated societies of iron and  st��el..workers, and of tbe inanufac-  A BREAK FEAR-D IN CHINA  It Would Mean Partition.  Nkw York, September 23.���In a  London dispatch,. Isaac N. Ford,  special correspondent of the Tribune, referring to the Chinese situation says : "The J_Dglish press has  not' yet had an opportunity for  commenting upon .the reported determination of president McKiniey  to order the withdrawal of Americans troops from; China. It has  refrained from dismissing American  questions, and '. has assumed a  neutral attitude tdward the political  parties in the presidential contest.  It is therefore nd(|-likely to give full  expression -to th| disappointment  which Avill be felt^iu. England over  the withdrawal' pt" the American  troops. One thinfe has been" clear  in the policy of .the foreign office  here, that is tlie/idetermiuatiou of  lord Salisbury .$to keep British  troops in Chiua.jfntil a settlement  of some kind-isf-feached. On this  account he would'have preferred to  have the American troops remain  indefinitely, and f join in such expeditions as" general Caselee decided  upon. - ". c.  The inference Klrawn from the  president's actioiit will - be that he  disapproves the jGerman .punitive  proposals as impracticable; that he  does not lend moral support to lord  .Salisbury's' policy; whatever it may.  be; that he declines to be*'drawn  into European entanglement; and  that he prefers to negotiate directly  with the Chinese peace commissioners, independent of the concert.  President McKinley's ��� course Avill  not be popular in lihiglahd.  Jt is evident that- count von  Waldersee, if he attempts to carry  on the punitive policy to its natural  and logical conclusion, will haA'e to  conduct more formidable .military  operations than the bombardment  of the J'ei Tang forts; details of  which are still coming in. Jfe will  have to lead the international forces  inland, until the empress is overtaken and captured, for she was. responsible for orders, for attacking  embassies and slaughtering the  foreigners.  There are optimists in the English press who affect to belie\re thin  Avill not be difficult, since the mandarins   themselves   will   surrender  her"for"punisli_ITenTr.vhen they are  couvinced that the partition of  China cannot be aArerted othei'Avise.  Those Avho have lived in China do  not share this view. They assert  that the ruling Manchu race aviII  stand by her to the end, and that  persistence in the demand for the  surrender of the empress, prince  Tuan and other guilty accomplices  aviII involve the establishment of  the court at Sinan or elsewhere.  Indeed there are already signs in  Berlin of an intention to. modify  the punitive proposals, so as to exclude the empress from the' black  list of guilty leaders.  Lord Salisbury is reported to  haA'e suggested some changes and  limitations iu methods, while  agreeing in principle with the German proposal. The English press,  following the Times aud Dr. Morrison, adheres strongly to the policy  of exemplary and personal punishment of the guilty. But the atmosphere in diplomatic circles is  electric, Avith suspicion that the  European concert will not be maintained, and that Russia Avill be the  first to break away and to occupy  Manchuria permanently, leaving  Germany free to hold Shan Yung.  Candid English journals already  forecast some scheme of partial  partition of this kind, and assert  that the British government will-  not interfere with the ambitions of  these powers for control of northern  China, but will merely Avatch both  closely. If these forecasts are fulfilled, the wisdom of the American  government in retaining liberty of  action, and withdrawing all its  forces except those required for  protection of its ministers, may be  fully vindicated.  SPECULATION_ J POLITICS  Rosebery May Be Leader.  LoNDON,September23��� A month's  cainrass   is   too long for a   jaded  public which seeips weary of it before it is a Aveek old.    There is no  excitement   over   the  result,    aud  little enthusiasm -for either principles or   men.     The election addresses   have fallen flat, and the  silence   of   only two leaders who  have not expressed their A;iews on  the situation is more eloquent than  the cleverest appeal to voters from  the front benches of the house of  commons.    These are lord Salisbury  and lord Rosebery.   Lord Salisbury  Avill establish a new precedent if he  alloAvs the polling to begin Avithout  issuing a manifesto of some kind,  and Liberals will cite it as a fresh  proof of his cynical indifference to  the democratic institutions, and his  contempt   for   the   power   of  the  general   electorate.      His   friends  assert that a short letter may be  expected any hour, in which he will  state the grounds for an appeal to  the country.   They explain that sir  William Harcourt and sir Henry  Campbell-Bannerman Availed" until  they could draw fire from' Mr. Balfour and Mr. Chamberlain aud tliat  lord Salisbury  has  held  his letter  hack until they have spoken.  - J-_ord Salisbury, however, has always been a law'unto himself in  politics. Avith a patrician, distaste  for war cries and direct appeals.to  the masses.     The sileuce of lord  Rosebery, if it remains unbroken,  will be interpreted as an indication  that.he does  not Avish to be associated with the Liberal party while  it is divided into two distinct 'sections.   He does. not   hold himself  responsible for the equivocal attitude of a large body of -radicals  tOAvard South Africa, and; does, riot-  Avish to expose himself" to attack, as  Mr. Asquith and Herbert Gladstone  have done by advocating. Liberal  imperialism.'  This As. the.-^explanaf  tion" given'-'by "liis" ffie.ids,**Mt:"'iit^  may be upset some day by a letter  or a speech from him on' tho political  situation.    Keen observers are  expecting his return to  the leadership of the  party after the elections, for they forecast  the downfall   of   Mr.  Labouchere  and   our  Little Rnglandcr radicals, avIio have'  been   violently    opposed    to    Mr.  Chamberlain's    policy    in     South  Africa and  half-hearted"manner in  supporting the Avar.    Thoy predict  that   the   opposition  in   the   new  house, outside of the Irish benches,  will be made up mainly of   Liberal  Imperialists,  aud that lord  Rose-  bery's recall Avill be the natural sequel to this object lesson in practical politics.  SALISBURY IS HEARD FROM  Little in His Manifesto.  Lonoon] September 23.���-Lord  Salisbury's manifesto to the electors  of tho United Kingdom, in anticipation of the parliamentary general elections, emphasizes the necessity that the government should be  supported by a strong parliamentary majority as the only means of  convincing the inhabitants of the  conquered South African territories  that there is no hope of diverting  the government by tlieir policy by  persistent resistance or agitation.  After remarking that all recent  troubles iu South Africa have beon  due to   a   shift of' parliamentary  opinion at a. critical moment, the  prime minister goes on to say: "It  will depend upon the disposition and conduct of the J3oers  how long an interval is to elapse  before their full position as a British  colony is attained. The brilliant  success of lord Roberts' army must  not blind us to the imperfectness  disclosed in our oavu defensive  armour, imperfectness which but  for the Avar might haATe. "remained  unnoticed." Jn conclusion lord  Salisbury refers to China as "a  difficulty among others confronting  the government, and requiring that  the government should be armed  with a strong majority in the house  of 'commons.." He urged that in view  of all these considerations, there  AA'oidd be no abstentions at the  polls. '  Are Charged With Mutiny.  San Francisco, September 23.���  The German transport Frankftirth  has arrived hero from Japan, and  will at ouce  be  prepared for the  carrying of horses to China. Soon  after the vessel entered the harbor  live of her men were placed in irons  for mutinous conduct. While in an  intoxicated condition they refused  to take orders from tlieir superiors,  and one of them made an attempt  to assault, the commander. The  matter will be reported to the German goA'ernment.  WILL RESUME DEVELOPMENT  On Ainsworth Properties.  The King Solomon Mining Company will resume development on  its Ainsworth group, this winter.  The company takes' bver'the interests of the Canadian .Pacific-Mining  and Milling Company and holds in  all 40 claims on CraAvford creek.  A. D. Westley, general manager  of the company, C. B. Holmes, attorney, and Elias Fitterling of Minneapolis, Minn., one of the heavy  stockholders, are registered at the  Hotel Pliair and will go to Ains-  Avorth tonight". Mr. Westley states  that he has just returned from the  east after interesting capitalists in  the King Solomon group, and that  the property will be thoroughly developed. The winter's work. will  be confined largely to the Amazon  claim, which is a silver-lead proposition, carrying some gold and copper "pyrites. The plant includes a  12-drill compressor and two Pelfcon  Avater wheels Avith a capacity of  ,250 h. p. The creAv is now- sinking  on the vein.      Maxwell Stevenson, junior, superintendent of the Highlander mine  at AinsAvorth, Avas in the city on  Saturday. He states that the big  tunnel on the Highlander is in 1050  feet, and progressing at an average  rate of five feet per day. The management figure on striking the  ledge 300 feet further in, and estimate that two months will be occupied.in completing the work. Three  shifts are employed, and the com-  f)i.essor...pipeB and ore tracks'are  earned Talong as~"tlie work progresses. -������  John McLatchie returns on Saturday from Ainsworth, Avhere he  surveyed the-Anna May claim, for  which a crown grant is to be  applied for. The controlling interest i.n the property is owned by the  Women's Northwest Mining Association of Spokane. It is a silver-  lead proposition. About $1000  Avorth of work has been done on  the claim, and it has a fine showing. Several handsome < specimens  are to be forwarded to W. H. Doav-  sing to be included iu tho British  Columbia exhibit at the Spokane  fruit fair.  BRITISH ARMY PROMOTIONS  May Not Please' Aldershot.  Nkw Yon if, September 22.���Re-  Terring to possible changes of high  army officials, I. N. Ford, in his special dispatch from London, says:  "Military changes of the first importance are predicted. The retirement of lord Wolseley is assumed  to be inevitable, and lord Roberts  is believed to be certain to succeed  him after he has had a few months  for the full restoring of his health.  This arrangement will leaA'e the  duke of Connaught in command in  Ireland, and Avill also enable the  new government to undertake the complex . problems  of military .reorganization, with  an adviser at headquarters  avIio has the confidence of the country, and is the best expert respecting the requirements of modern  warfare. Lord Kitchener and general Buller Avill remain in Africa  until the government knows Avhat  to do Avith them, after conferring  with lord Roberts. Lord Kitchener  cannot be placed over general Buller and other generals of superior  rank nowiin South Africa, but lord  Salisbury has the strongest possible  faith in his powers as an organizer,  and is not likely to allow him to be  sacrificed to the prejudice and  jealousy of the Aldershot gang.  More Stories of Shipwreck.  St. John's, NeAvfoundland, September 23.���Damaged vessels continue to make this port from the  grand banks. One report says a  collision betAveen two French fishing schooners during the gale carried away the masts of both. They  were driven out of sight, and it is  feared they foundered, which would  represent a loee of about 40 lives.  BAILWAYSANDSTEAMBOATS  Repairing the Steamer Nelson: ;.

Dr. Carl Hoepfner, -a German, secured the ear of the men  who were financing the enterprise,  and undertook for a consideration  to put the company in shape to do  business. He Avas engaged at a  salary of $5000, was given $107,000  in paid up stock, and in return  caused the coinpanv to spend  $150,000 upon plant Avhich the  officers of the compauy now say is  worthless, owing to Hoepfner's  alleged misrepresentations with  respect to his patent processes. This  wottl.l haA'e knocked out most ventures of the kind in a community  whose people were unfamiliar'Avitli  mining or refining, but tho Hamilton men were .made .of good stuff,  and they found ���men to do what  Hoepfner Avas unable  to do.     The  , result is' that Hamilton now bids  fair to control - in a measure the  refining and manufacture of nickel  on the North 'American continent  George Gooderham, president  of the War Eagle aiid Centre Star  Mining Cpirrpanies, is the authority  I'or the statement that the mining  conditions in- Rossland are uoav  more favorable than at any. former  period, in .the history of the camp.  The reapou for this is that economies in smelting have more than  offset any  increase in   the  cost of  mining   introduced   with   the   enforcement of  the eight   hour  law.  j\li\ Gooderham's companies are now  paying $0 per toii for the treatment  of their ore  at Trail, but  he  says  that  a   proposition   Avas recently  made by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company to reduce the smelting charges to $4.75, as an  inducement to them to increase their contracted supply up to  S00,000  tons.  As  smelting   rates   have  gone at  Trail, $1.75 is pretty low, bufc  Mr.  Gooderham's companies declined to  accept the offer for the reason .that  eAen greater economies in smelting  are to be expected during  the  life  of such contract.

Next week Moyie will have  another shipping mine on its list.  The Society Girl, which has recently  turned out so well, i.s its name. W.  j. Watkins has secured the contract of hauling the ore, and left  yesterday morning for Fort Steele  to secure learns. He -will be ready  to begin hauling the first of next  week. At the mine there . are already 75 tons of clean shipping ore.  Nearly all of this has been taken  out of the new discovery within  the past ten days. A 300 ton ore  bin has been built and a large and  Greenwood Miner.  An.effort is being made in Rossland to bring out-a-labor candidate  to contest Yale-Cariboo, and with  this object a convention will probably be called.    Wi th   the probability of almost certain defeat it  would  be impolitic for organized  labor to place a candidate in the  field.    -'In"the mining districts a  labor candidate would receive as  large a vote as either of the other  candidates,   but   in the   northern  part of the district a labor candidate would   not   poll   ten    votes  in      a     hundred.       Tho     Miner  would   be     pleased     to     see    a  labor candidate in  tho field  were  there the slightest .chance of his  election, but any one who has been  over   the   district   knows   that   a  unionist candidate could not save  his deposit.   And a labor candidate  could not count on a solid vote even  from the members of the union organizations.   Many good union men  are strong party men.    In fact it is  only reasonable to expect that an  earnest unionist worker will-also be  an earnest worker in: the political  party which he thinks--will-best advance the principles advocated by  labor.    .   .  Coast Mine in Difficulty.  A meeting of the Van Anda Conr  pany creditors was held at Van  Anda last week. It was attended  chiefly by men to whom wages were  due. After explanation of the situation of the Van Anda Company,  a proposition was put before the  men by which they would be sure  of their wages in future and also  have a probability of receiving  their back pay in full.   After dis  cussion the proposition was accepted, as the best under the circumstances. The plan adopted is, collateral bonds for back Avages aud  that all the output of tho mines is  to pass to the miners as security till  their wages are paid while the surplus over and above the expenses  of production arc to go towards  liquidating back debts.

As the outfit  was  now at  Nelson,  aud the company's foreman of construction   he"re   to   install    it,   he  hoped   all   ground   for   complaint  would speedily be removed.
