It is improbable  that an immediate response to.tho  request for instructions to minister  Conger can be given, as prince  Ching's request will have to be laid  '���''���boforo the president and time given  for the consideration of his creden-  Via Is," as well as the desirability of  proceeding  at  once.     Moreover, it  7 is. likely that minister Conger's  Tiinlgment  as   to ' when. tho. actual  '. negotiations should open will govern to considerable extent.  Whether prince Ching's request  has been made to other powers as  well as to the United States is not  known here, but in view of the'.do-"'  sire to 'have Mr. Conger proceed at  ��� 'once, it is probable that the Chinese  : ; officials are ready to negotiate with  '������ the powers individually or with  : them as a  whole  through the me-  '-.':;���dium of a commission".

Bkullv, September IS.��� The text  of the German government's telegraphic note on the peace negotiations in China is as follows : ''The  government of the emperor hold?,  as preliminary to entering upou  diplomatic relations with the  Chinese government,' that thrive  persons must be delivered up who  havo beon proved to be the original  and real instigators of bhe outrages  against international law which  have occurred at Pekin. Tho number of those who wero merely instrumental in carrying out the  outrages is too great. Wholesale'  executions would be contrary to the  civilized conscience, and the. circumstances of such a group of leaders  canuofc be completely a��certaincd,  but a few whoso guilt is not  known should be delivered up and  punished. The . representatives of  the powers ab Pekin are in a position to give or bring forward convincing evidence. Less importance  attaches toi the number punished  than to thei r character as chief instigators, or leaders. The government, believes it can count, on the  unanimity of all the .cabinets in  regard to this, poilit,'iiisoniuch as  indifference to; the ;idea. of .just  ���atonement would- be equivalent to  : indifference' fco a' repetition of crime.

'September '19.���As  might have been expected, coincident wilh'fcho arrival of count von  Waldersee in China, comes the most  important declaration of policy yet  issued by any of tho allies. As the  Daily News remarks, Germany's  circular note has turned the tables  (in Russia, whose evacuation proposal had put G'erninhy into au awkward corner. Now . if ������ Russia  assents to the German note she will  ��be unable to continue to pose as  China's lenient and forgiving  friend, whiic if sho dissents Russia  will lay herself open to the charge  of reducing the punitive expedition  to a farce. ,._  TJie Londo-n morning papers have  little but praise for  what is called  Germany's   admirable   note.

The MorninglPost, alone, in a cogent  and well reasoned, editorial,  points  out a grave objection, namely: That  if the real authors  and  instigators  of the'uprising   should   prove to  be   identical with   the   personnel  0.'   the    Chinese    government,    it  can hardly bo  expected  that' they1  will deliver themselves up, and that,  if the  Chinese  government  should  be. designated as gni I ty, i b would he  under tho ban of the powers, a condition of things only���.terminable hy  the.conquest of;China, or au rqvolu-  ition producing a lic.w-/.government."

Meanwhile the  note itself will receive the earnest  attention of the president and such  members of the cabinet as are in  ���Washington tomorrow. Tho state  department has been all along directing its efforts to the speedy  .opening of negotiations for a final  settlement with the Chinese government, and has so far not been  heard from relative to the ma.tter  of punishments beyond the indirect  references contained iu tho notes  that have defined the government's  purposes.

COAL ADVANCES IN PRICE  Owm�� to the Strike.  o  J^iiLAOKLi'niA.Pennsylvania,September IS.���The leader of thostriko  says that at the end of the second  day 11S.O0O of tlio 111,000 mino"  workers in tlio anthracite coal fields  are idle. No representative of the  mine operators makes t 'statement  for their side of tho u titter, but  individual mine owners dispute the  strikers figures, saying that there  are more men afc work than the  union leaders -will admit.  The first advauce in the price  of-  coal, as a result of the  strike,  was  mado by the Philadelphia & R.jid-_'  ing company, 25 cents per ton being"'  added.  This advance was promptly  mefc by the local  dealers  who-increased tho price  to consumers" 50-  cents per ton.  A cloud appears on the otherwise  peaceful horizon in the  shape of a "  report from Harrisburg that a bit-  tor feeling  is  developing between .  tho  union  and   non-union men   in .'  the Lykons district, located in ;the  upper end of Dauphin county, and,  involving about 2:100 mine workers.'  A   concession    was    voluntarily-  granted the oOOO employees of  the  Lohigh   Coal   &   Navigation  G<?m- -  pany in the region west of Mauch?  Chunk,  who  will   hereafter   work;  ton hours a day with a  consequent  increase  in  earnings.    These   men  were unorgani/.ed and had nofc presented any grievances.  True to  their  declaration  made  before the strike was  ordered,   the";  Philadelphia and Reading company V  today brought its mules to tlieT-ur-',  face in two mines afcShamokiu that',  had been closed by the  strike, and  announced   thafc   they    were   per- .  manently abandoned.    This  action,  makes it necessary for  the  miners :  who   formerly   worked    in    these  colleiies to seek Avork elsewhere.  -J.-T  Tho  action  of 400  or more"0111--;  ployees of the AA'est End Coal Company "at* Macau qua,  near  Wilke's-  barre,   in   sticking   to  their works;.  stands out prominently as tho biisy^  feature of an otherwise  idle  terri-/  tory.     They    say.  they   havo   no"  grievances,  have   always   received  Icindly   treatment  from   tlieir   employers, and therefore resist  every,  effort  to   induce   them   to  strike.

Valued at $1200.  Dr. Doolittle came down from the  Yenus mine yesterday wibh a $1200  gold brick, the lasfc cleanup from  tho mill as ifc stands now. He confirmed the report that the rotary  mill had proved a failure, and  would~l)c abandoned! The manufacturers guaranteed ifc to give  satisfaction, so that tho failure  does  not  involve  any loss  to the  company outside of the valuablo  time waited in experimenting. No  pains wero neglected in giving the  mill a thorough test, bufc tlio results wero not nearly up to the  standard demanded.  .\ meeting of tho shareholders of  the company will be held here  shortly to consider various matters  of busines��, ul'tcr which Dr. Doolittle expects to go east, lie thinks  that the directors of the company  will decide on putting in a ten-  stamp battery without delay. In  tho meantime development "work  on the property will be continued.  AVhen fche mill building was erected  provision was made for installing  stamps, and the cost of the change  will be confined largely to outlay  for machinery.  Severe Storm at Nome.

Candidate MacNeill will poll more than  liis party's strength in Rossland,  and candidate Galliher will do likewise in Nelson ; but outside these  two towns each will poll his party's  strength. There is no data on  which to base an estimate of the  strength of cither of the two  parties, other than tho predictions  of enthusiastic party men, and an  accurate estimate cannot be made  on any such predictions. Tin-;  Trihuxe is of opinion that the  two parties aro pretty evenly  matched," and that tho candidate  who secures the independent vote  will be elected.  forced to confess that its ell'oof has  not been ruinous; that from tho  boundary to the 'Slocan thn* country  is prosperous ; and that Kootonay  is on tho eve of bolter times than  it has ever lenown. Tho erstwhile  calamity howler is evidently  anxious to bo of some political service in tho present emergency.  It can bo stated on authority  that tho Labor Unions of Nelson  Avill not lend any assistance to tho  movement, that is said to lurvo  boon started at Itossland, to bring  out a Labor candidate for this constituency.  Foil several days past the organ  of the gang of so-called Conservatives that attempted to deprive  -ISO cit.iy.ens of Nelson riding of the  right to poll a A'ote at the coming  Dominion election has favored tho  people with all sorts of unfavorable  opinions regarding a public utility  owned by tho city. Yesterday's  edition had a very favorable article  regarding tlio same public utility.  When the city engineer made a report of the estimated cost of repairing the old electric light dam  and one favoring building a new  dam further up the stream at twice  the cost, the Miner said either expenditure would be money wasted.  .Vow, when one of the ablest  hydraulic engineers on the Pacific  coast makes a report that tho old  dam should be repaired and tho  debris excavated from the reservoir,  the Miner says everything is lovely.  Wurcx the Nelson Minor succeeds  in squaring itself Avith the friends  of tho eight-hour laAV, it should  take up that little difference Avhich  it has witli those ISO electors whom  its sponsors sought to disfranchise  during tho recent'provincial election. The men Avho hatched the  plot are no more blameworthy than  the noAvspaper that defended thorn.  "WirRisr receiving a monthly subsidy from the Mine Owners' Association, the Miner of Nelson Avas  bitter in its opposition to the eight-  hour laAV.. and roundly denounced  CArery public man avIio favored it.

TIIK  TlUISb'NK:  Please inform milk users and readers  of Tiik Trim-nk thafc a rank substitute   for  milk  is  being  used in  Nelson, and I   would say that any  unscrupulous dealer avIio so adulterates such a necessary article of food  to   the extent  that tho  health of  strong   people,  lot  alone  tho   sick  ones, is  seriously affected by it is  an unmitigated rascal.    Mr. Editor,  .1   know  of  people here,  including  myself, who, acting upon the advice  of physicians, have boon compelled  to adopt a milk diet, with tho most  injurious "results.    I amjiofc speaking of watered milk, I speak of milk  that is not milk in any sense of the  word.    Why does the health officer  allow  such a condition of  affairs?  I.s there no milk inspector here?    I  believe there is- only one  man in  town avIio supplies puro milk, but J  couldn't buy his milk ; ho said he  had ' bnroly   enough   for  liis   customers.   A man Avho sells you puro,  wholesome milk is a-public benefactor, but the man avIio .swindles you  with an injurious substitute when,"  perhaps,  you  depend  solely  upon  that nourishment to restore 3'onr.  health, should bo confined in a penitentiary.    What am 1 going to do?  I   am compelled <to live on a milk  diet for several weeks, ' and T haA'e  tho choice of remaining  in Nelson  and    poisoning   my   system   with  doped milk or of leaving the town  to recover my health on pure milk  that 1 cannot procure here.

"PREDICTS     A    TOBY     VICTORY.  The North-West Review, published fit Winnipeg with the approval  oi' archbishop Lmigevin, and edited  hy Rev. Father (.licrrior, whose  name appears at the head, is now  out after the Sif ton machine, and  its article this week is significant of  the well-thought-out views of the  Catholic leaders in the wost.  Tho Review, in the course of its  article, says the near approach of  the elections finds tho Liberal party  in Manitoba split up into waning  factions, and with leaders who lost  not only tho confidence of tho  poople, but even tho respect of  many who at ono time were their  dsyoted followers. The Conservative party, in this respect, presents  a striking contrast to their opponents, thoroughly organized, fresh  from the victory of last December,  and with a leader of whom they  are all proud, they present a solid  phalanx, which in itself guarantees  success.  The signs of the times, then, certainly point to a sweeping Conservative victory in the province, and  'nowhere-more so than in the Brandon district, where, besides the general conditions which will contribute to tho result, the personality  of the candidates will prove an important factor. It is a fight between tho most powerful public  man in Canada and the weakest  member of a mediocre cabinet, between the most popular citizen of  Manitoba and the most unpopular,  between a statesman who has the  reputation of sterling: honesty and  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

And in such a fight, wlio can  doubt the result ? The hundreds  of independent electors in the con-  stitueucy, men we mean whojiavo-  no party affiliations, will naturally  be attracted by tho sunny ways  and admirable <|ualities of the ono  candidate, and repelled by the tin-  amiable demeanor and alleged  "slick" propensities of the other,  and they will vote accordingly.  Hugh John is after Sif ton, and the  lattor's -'Waterloo" is in sight.  The Review adds that tho Liberals in Brandon seem to be utterly  disheartened aud without hope, and  that feeling can easily be understood.          Corbett Carried Away a Fortune.  After tho revelations made in  affidavits by tho wives of the two  pugilists, corroborated by others  concerned in the deal, no one can  well refuse to believe that a gigantic swindle was perpetrated on the  public by James J. Corbett and  Norman Selby ("Kid" McCoy) when  they had their recent encounter in  Madison Square Garden, New York  city. What purported to be a prize  fight, it seems, was nothing more  than a carefully rehearsed imitation. More than $73,000 was taken  in at the gates, and a much larger  sum was realized as a result of  wagers made in a manner that  amounted to sheer robbery.  These facts, which havo been  more than surmised since the fight,  are set forth in affidavits mado by  the wives of tho two pugilists, each  of whom has brought suit against  her husband for divorce.  When McCoy, referring to Mrs.  Corbett, quoted, "Hell hath no fury  like a woman scorned," he might  also have had his own wife in mind.  Imperial Bank of Canada  BRAD  OEFICE. TORONTO.

McCoy last week served papers on  his wife for divorce. Now he is in  hiding to escape service in a counter  suit. The charges made against  him are of a sensational nature.  Divorce is demanded on statutory  grounds.  Mrs. Selby concludes her petition  with-a-decla"ratioTT~tlIat7her hus-  baud bargained to forfeit the fight  with Corbett for a price, and that  he posted $10,000 to guarantee that  ho would keep faith with his co-  con spirators.  When he left New York Corbett  took with him more money than he  was supposed to possess. ITe had  in his pockot twenty-one thousand  dollar bills. Me took with him also  a letter of credit drawn on Parr's  Bank (Limited) of London calling  for $100,000, and a second letter of  credit drawn on a Paris bank for  $50,000. It is asserted that he and  the young singor, whoso departure  was coincident with his own, were  booked on the Campania as "Mr.  and Mrs. Martin."

Tiie determination of the labor  ..unions, as "given expression to at  the meeting last evening, to nominate- a candidate for this consti-  tueijey, will, com plicate the political  sirttatiou hero to a very eonsider-  ,able degree, aiid cannot fail to^be a  matter for nuich satisfaction to the  Conservatives.

They wi 11 ace'ompl ish this too wi thou tg.-iiniiig anything themselves,  because they cannot hope to win in  a, three cornered light, a fact which  is conceded by their own leaders.
