Vote for Mackintosh and Good Government-
Mr. Curtis at Greenwood—He Makes   Statements Which He Cannot Prove—Time
and Places for Polling.
Vote for Mackintosh.
The Rossland riding at tlie present
time, and for the next year or two,
will need nn active representative in
the Legislature who should he ahle to
secure what it wants from the Government. Roads and bridges are needed
and many other favors will have to lie
secure,! in a growing section like this.
These are of vital Importance to the
region, The trend of political affairs
and all the signs, political and otherwise, make it certain that Hon. Joseph
Martin will not have nearly a majority
in thc House of those who will be elected on the 9: h of J une, lf he get half a
dozen supporters he will he fortunate,
indeed. Then, too. it isdoiihtful if Mr.
Martin himself will lie returned in
Vancouver, owing to the fact that
there are four sets of candidates in the
Held io that ciiy, and there is a general
political mix up there, so lhat ii makes
lhe outcome any man's vii-tury. Therefore, when the political dice are
shaken, Mr. Martin may not come out
a winner in thc game.
Under the circumstances, to elect
the Hon. Smith Curtis in this riding
would he an egregious blunder ou the
part of the electors. This would be so
becuuie he would be simply a unit in a
small minority, and a very little nne
at that. Those who are opposed to
Martinism, we are convinced, are cer
tain to have a large majority, nnd a
representative of Martinism, and Martinism in the aggregate, would have no
weight, and could obtain but scant
favors from a Government so made up.
Why Mr. Curtis, under such condi
lions, would be worse than no representative at all I In the language of
the streets he would "uot be in it,"
and strive as he might to serve his
const ituents.he would be unable to dn
anything fur them. The effect, of
having him there would, therefore, he
to retard the riding-and to keep its
material interests in a languishing con
dition for a considerable period. None
of lhe remote hut rich mining districts
in the liding could be opened for want
of roads, and it. would be difficult lo
induce the Government I o keep in repair those trails and highways which
are already consi ructed. It, thueforc,
seems palpable that to elect Mr. Curtis
would be to throw away un opportunity for helping the section in which we
On the other hand, every elector
should strive to return Hon. 0, H.
Mackintosh, as he will hem touch with
and huve lhe full confidence of those
who will be in the majority in the next
Government. He will aid in giving
ihe Province a stable and reliable
Government, and one which will inspire ihe confidence of foreign capital.
As hi- will have the confidence in the
majority in the Legislature, thc Rossland Riding could get anything reasonable In the way of trails, roads,
hridges, etc,, that it might ask for, and
this would result the quicker in the
development of the new mining fields
within the riding, which are now unproductive because they are Inaccessible for want of avenues over which to
reach them. Therefore, I he electoi s of
the riding, if they eleci Mr. Mackintosh, would be doing the very hest
possible thing for the good of the section in which they reside.—Hossland
Mr. Curtis at Oreenwood.
Hon, Smith Curtis held a meeting
of electors at Greenwood last Wednesday night, The afternoon and evening
had heen given up by lhe citizens to
an impromptu and thoroughly spontaneous celebration of the arrival of
Lord Robeilsand his troops at Johannesburg sn that a lively meeting was
looked for after the previous rejoicing,
This expectation was fully realized,
manifestations of party spirit interrupting the meeting. These might
have in a large measure lieen avoided
had the chairman been tactful and a
litlle indulgent, but he lacked these
characteristics und so unintentionally
piecipitated confusion. However Ihe
meeting passed off without, the serious
trouble that at one time seemed imminent,
one long tirade against that portion of
Ihedistricl press that Is notfn vocable to
his candidature and against Mr. Mackintosh, and that gentleman's puhlic
platform supporteis, notwithstanding
that the speaker claimed lo lie tilled
with a desire to avoid personalities.
He was followed liy Mr. C, Foley, of
Rossland, who had just returned from
attending a meeting of the Western
Federation of Miners u! Denver, Mr,
Foley was a decided disappointment.
He talked for a long time, Indulged in
a lol of rambling generalities,admitted
that he was not posted on thi' chief
issues of the campaign, told tedious
and stale annecdotes that sorely tried
the patience of a considerable propor
tion of those present, grossly misrepie-
sented Mr. Jas, Kerr, of Greenwood,
and following the example set hy Mr,
Curtis, indulged in personal abuse,
Mayor Goodeve, of Rossland, being his
chief victim.
Mr, Duncan Ross was the next
speaker. He opened by asking Mr.
Curtis whether he included the tii een-
wood '-Times" among the newspapers
he had alleged he had been asked to
buy and elicited an assurance from
that, gentleman that he did not. Mr.
Ross next pointed out that the only
Labor Union man who had spoken in
the district in favoi of Martinism
had to go lo Denver, Colorado,
for his instructions whilst such loyal
Briiish subjects as Messrs. Ralph
Smith, Thus. Foster and other friends
and supporters of labor did not receive direction fiom a foreign source.
Then he called attention to the insincerity of theproteslulions of Mi'.Smilh
Cm tis that he avoided personalities
and yet his speech that evening liJid
lieen little else than a series of pel sonal
attacks ou Mr. Mackintosh. Mr. Curtis, too, was doubtless responsible for
the scurrilous pamphlet, thai had been
distributed (hut evening attributing to
Mr. Mackintosh the onus of alleged
non-payment of moneys due on account of lhe Regina Exhibition, whilst
he had a telegram from the mayor of
Calgary stating thai the various Committees and nut*Governor Mackintosh
were responsible for the d-flcit. and
that all liabilities were afterwards discharged liy the Government. He had
as well Ihe authority of Hon. Sidney
Fisher, Dominion Minister of Agriculture for it that all Ihe accounts were
audited and approved before being
paid liy (lieGovernment. Hon. Joseph
Martin's changeahleness was next
dwelt upon. He lmd changed his
policy in regard lo borrowing money
for public woiks; as lo Government
ownership of railways ; as to redistribution and in respect of lhe Eight
hour law. Mr. Martin would not remain steadfast, to any political purpose whatever hut would at any time
change his policy to suit his own ends.
Mr. Rots declared lhat he would himself vote for Mr. Mackintosh and gave
his reasons for doing su, He closed by
reading a telegram from lhe president
of the Gatineati Railway declaring
that Mr. Mackintosh had at nu lime
been responsible for payment of
moneys ilue by that railway, so had
not, been guilty of default in connection therewith.
Mr. Curtis replied at length to much
of the criticism lhat had been directed
against himself, and made a strong
appeal to the voters for their support,
At thc close of Mr. Curtis' speech at
midnight. Mr. Ross announced lhat a
cable had just been received' by the
"Times" announcing that Pretoria had
surrendered, and tlie meeting broke np
after giving rousing cheers and singing

The St. Petersburg "Messenger of
Finance" states that Knglisli capitalists
have recently invested$0,000,000 in the
Russian petroleum-producing territory
between the Caspian and Black Seas.
The latest thing in the way of a
strike is one by the colliery surgeons
of one of the English coal Holds. The
reason of it is the Inequitable division
of the medical fees subscribed by the
miners, which have been equally apportioned among the surgeons quite
irrespective of tlie nunilier of cjtses
each had attended.
Au official report from a foreign
consulate at St. Petersburg slates that
the value of Russian gold mines has
been greatly exaggerated. Experienci d
mining engineers have visile I Siberia in thc interests ot Knglisli and
American capitalists during the past
three years, but though they made
extensive examinations of the conditions not a single company, so far as is
known, has heen organized as a result
of their reports. There is very little
foreign capital invested in Siberia.
At the International Mining Congress, which is to meet in Puis, June
18-2.1, 1900, discu-sions will take place
upon subjects under Clio following headings: Mining; Explosives in Mines;
Use of Electricity In Mines ; Working
Conditions at Great Depth; Reduction
of Hand Labor in Mining and Metallurgy ; the Progress of Iron and Steel
Metallurgy since 1899; Application of
Electricity to Metallurgy—(a) Chemical
Application, (h) Mechanical Application ; Progress in the Metallurgy of
Gold; Recent Improvements in the
Mechanical Preparation of Ores.

and employes for the various counties
of the State of Washington for tlie
year 1899:

A mining exchange, In an article
urging that it is as necessary for modern miners to utilize modern mining
machinery as any modern process of

more economical hoiler plants anywhere than arc at some of the up to-
date American anthracite conl mines,

The United States Commercial Agent
stationed at Stiinhrldge, Quebec, has
reported that a mineral discovery
which may lead to important results
has been made in the Laurentian
Mountains, where a seam of coal has
been found on the land of the Shawul*
gan Water and Power Company. The
extent of the coal, the stratum bearing
which is about fifty feet below thc surface, has not yet been proved, lt Is
stated that geologists have always
maintained that no minerals existed
in the Laurentian Mountains, and thnt
those granite hills contained nothing
more valuable than the iron-like stone
constituting their formation.
About 450 men are employed at the
Wabana iron ore mines, wbich aro
situate on the north shore of Great
Bell Island, an Island ahout eight miles
long hy two miles wide, lying in Conception Bay, on the east coast of Newfoundland, and distant thirty-five
miles by water from the town of St.
John. These men are stated to receive
as wages 10 cents per hour, thc usual
working shift being 12& hours. Tbe
output of the three mines averages
about 2,000 tons per (lay. The cost of
mining and delivering the ore to tlie
ship is less than 50 cents per ton, and
the ocean freight to the furnaces of

But he was cunning enough to point

Piuxv Mr, Curtis.
Mr. Smith Citrus slated last Wednesday night (hat he hnd heen licked

editor of the Oreenwood "Times" nnd
admitted that he did not include ihnt

way at all npproaehnd him or any nne
connected with him he did so knowing
it In he absolutely uni rue.
Mr. Curtis has announced that he
experts to be in a minority at the
Midway pulling place, The electors
who will vole here will dn y>ell to
show Ium in a most emphatic manner
that ilu* Injustice done tliiscoinmnuiiy
in removing the Government office and
in depriving the town and vicinity of
the police protection it hid previously
had for live or six years; tbe boorish-
ni'ss of Premier Mai I in in driving
through the lown without showing
the commonest courtesy to even one
of ils lending residents, and the hypne-
ri-y of Mr. Cutis, « ho liefore the faces
of residents wns complimentary, hul.
behind their hacks publicly indulged
In sneers at the town—that these
111inifs, coupled with Hie more import*
nut fact that a continuance of Martinism would be most disastrous to tbe
Provinceatlarge and particularly, lo
llvse mining districts, have moved
litem io do their utmost to give Hon.
C. fl. Mackintosh i comparatively
large majority here.
When Mr. Smith Curtis addressed nl
public meeting at Midway he spoke of
it as "a town" and said some very
complimentary things about it. Thai
was e ii ly in the campaign when he
was confident his fulsome flattery
wnuld win votes, iihlco then he has
discovered thai lhe voters of this town
and vicinity have no use for neithn
Premier Martin nor his biiiiioiIi-
Inngicd Minister of Mines, ennse-
(| lently at lust Wednesday night's
public nieeling at Greenwood he
snneringly referred  In Midway ns a
Itlle village" and again as a "little
place 'ilh thirty or forty voles." And
yd. Me. Cm lis claims to be thoroughly
sincere, instead of which he is a designing hypia rile.
A roast press despatch states that
"in Ills address to the electors Mr.
James Dunsuiiiir snys he pays the
same wages to Chinese as lo white
miners and that he will discharge
Chinamen as soon as he can get while
men to take their places." As the
Wellington Colliery Company is advertising in the district fur GOO miners and
helpers for thu Wellington Extension
and Cnmox mines to supercede all the
Chinese ln these mines, there is at least
a semblance of sincerity in Mr. Diinsinuir's profesfed intentions, lt remains tn he seel), however, whether or
not this move is simply a temporary
expedient for election purposes or the
permanent abandonment of a policy
detrimental to the hist interests of
white labor.
The freak editor ofa little newspaper
called lbe Oreeownnd "Miner" evidently had not recovered from the effects
of the Greenwood celebration when he
made an abortive attempt to write the
editorials for that disgrace to the
press, lie seems In have had only a
few words in his mind at tbat time,
viz., while-shirted hobos, scab and
black eyes. These he sea tiered pro
iniscuously throughout that column of
confused ideas. We are sorry for th it
individual. At times he appears quite
rational, and during these temporory
lapses inin sanity has been known io
write articles lhat people have read
through without liecoming sick, but
again the poor fellow imagines he is
editing a newspaper, and it is when in
ihis deluded slate that he is most
deserving of pity. If he thinks by his
noisy denunciations that he will he
able to raise the puhlic sentiment
against us he will find, lu his intense
disgust, that his efforts will prove as
futile as for a hilly goat to charge the
rising sun. Tiik Advance is here tn
stay, and will be found supplying the
public with clean literature when the
Greenwood "Miner" has become forgotten by ils few unfortunate readers.
His reference to the small circulation
nf The Advance is a base falsehood,
and wns known to he such when il was
made, We hope iu future lhat this
dispenser of fabrications will show a
iitile seme and at least tell the truth.
Among other I rtitiiped-np charges
ninde by Mt. Curtis against Hon. C, II.
Mackintosh was one of having given a
"black-rye" lo thn Sunsj't iri the Similkameen, which Mr. Curtis, on the
sul hoi ity of his notoriously unreliable
mining partner, says is "one nf the
greatest cupper properties in British
Columbia." What, aliout the "black-
eye" Air, Curtis attempted to give the
Boundary country wheii he publicly
stated asa leason why a refinery must
he established on the coast instead of
in this district that "to run a refinery
would need fit) ions of matte per day
which means 1,000 tons of nre perdny."
Mr. Curtis thus Indicclly asserted
that by the time lhe Coast-Midway
railway will be ready to lake the pro-
duet of our mines to Iho const—say
two years hence if it be binlt-i his ,)|s.
trict will tint lie producing 1000 toiisof
ore per day, And yel he savs tbat he
hns closely siudied this question. Is
thij< another 'vldunce or his sincerity?
is it. another proof ,,f ins ft*.
A Grand Forks press correspondent
I bus reported a recent Curtis meeting
held at Grand Forks : Any lingering
uncertainly which may have heen exhibited as to the overwhelming preponderance of public opinion in tbis
city rospocling Ihe result of the vote
of Grand Forks was rudely dispelled
by the attitude of the audience at the
Curtis meeting. It was practically a
strong demonstration by the large
audience of their sympathy with Mr.
Mackintosh. While Ihe audience
listened patiently to Ihe weary dis.
course of Mr. Curtis Ihey listened
silently, hut every point scored against
him wns cheered in the echo. On Ihe
other band Mr. Curtis' points fell veiy
flat. Mayor Goodeve, of Rossland,
followed, His reply was brilliant,
logical nnd convincing. As he demol-
;,hed the flimsy arguments of Mr,
Curtis and exposed the insidious
method* of Martinism the entire
audience h.irst into cheers.
Mr, Curtis seemed tn appreciate his
position very keenly.   He paraded Ihe
Mongolian spectre, delivered a pan
egyric nn the Hon. Joseph Martin, and
declared for Slate-owned    railways.
The Minister of Mines did not disclose
the method hy which the Martin Gov-
eminent proposes lo raise Ihe $20,000,
000 required tn carry out  ils pet pro
ject.   Mr, Curtis absuredly declared
that Mr. Martin would make theC, P.
It. a State railway within Hve years.
But a few momenta before he had ad*
mittedthattheprojected railway would
connect with the C. P. If., and would
in a measure he dependent upon that
railway fnr the   providing   of low
freight rates nn transcontinental business,    Mr.  Curtis, in   fart, became
hopelessly involved on  the railway
question when cross-examined hy an
individual  in the audience    He admitted that it wnuld lake several yenrs
to make Ihe railway survey though
the Hope Mountains, and the Similkameen district.   Thus the relief promised by the Martin Government is not
tobe thought of.  The meeting closed
with cheers for Mr. Mackintosh,
Promises and Performances.
Of what uso are n politician's theories if his record and his actions are
opposed to those theories? Premier
Martin is endeavoring to ride into
power on a policy of government
ownership of railways,   What is ther
borrowed $1,500,000 to do this woik.
Shortly afterwards, to the disgust of
those who believed in government
ownership, nnd who also believed thai
the Government Would stand by its
announced policy, sold the road to lhe
Northern Pacific, and gave a bonus of
tl7M it mile for 2.VI miles tn get rid of
In 180(1 Martin was a candidate for
the representation of Winnipeg in the
Dominion Hnuse. The members of
the Trades and Lahor Council, whn
knew Joe Martin and who always keep
in close touch with public men und
public affairs, prepared a series of
questions for Martin to answer, lho
first two following:
1. Are you in favor of constructing
and operating the Hudson's Bay Railway ns a government rond ?
2, Are ynu In favorof I lie governiuenl
owning and operating the telegraph
and telephone systems uf Canada ?
Martin's answers are given below i
Willi White, Esq,, 80 Hallett street,
DEAR Sin,—Yours of the 25th nit, at
hand, I am very willing to attend any
public meeting tlmt mny be called
with a view of discussing the question
that you submit to me, In thn meantime I will give you my views on the
said questions:
1, 1 am not in favor of tlie Government constructing and operating railways. I think this can be done much
hetter liy private individuals and that
any Oovernnient aid should be given
as a bonus or subsidy.
2. For the same reason I am not in
favor of the Government owning and
operating telegraph aud telephone
This occurred less than four years
ago. Martin's answers are definite
enough. Has he changed his mind
since then, or is he simply trying to
secure power through a policy which
he thinks popular hut which lie does
not believe in ?
Is it not safer to follow the advice of
sensible men like Ralph Smith when
he says, "1 do not < are a snap ahout a
man's theories, if I knnw that yesterday the man did something contrary
to those theories. The man then must
perform the action above before I will
have any confidence in him."
Opposed to Martinism.
From tlie Rossland "Miner" it is
1'limed that last Wednesday evening
the people of Rossland were to have
the privilege of hearing tlie issues now
before the electors discussed liy iMr. E.
V. Bodwell, of Victoria, who at the
solicitation of influential citizens there
consented tn address a puhlic meeting
in lhe Miners' Union hall. Perhaps no
man in British Columbia has the same
strong anil comprehensive grasp of
Provincial affairs which Mr. Bodwell
possesses. His intimate acquaintance
with almost every inlerest in British
Columbia- in I he interior ne well as on
the coast-covers a period of many
years, and Iiis character for frankness
and integrity in his puhlic utterances
hns never been, nor could it he, brought
into question. He has nothing to gain
in the political warfare In I lie Province
liy the defeat of this Government
except that which every good citizen
hopes to gain in seeing an honest and
stable administration in office. Ill
common with every one interested in
the passage and enforcement of good

A Sabbath Circular.
There is no lietter method of testing
the honesty and sincerity of public
men thnn that furnished liy their own
acl ions when driven into a corner,
Tliis is signilic-an'tly illustrated hy a
circular which has lieen sent hy mail
tn hundreds of electors throughout the
Rossland Riding nnd signed by J. A.
Yerex, chairman of tlie Provincial
Government campaign. It ia dated
Vancouver, May 27th, 1000, the postal
date on the envelopes huing 23rd and
21th of May. It will be observed that
the 27th of May was a Sunday, and
this date was no doubt adopted to
sireng'hcn the nefarious object the
writer had in view, which was to show
that it wns only published after iiomin-
tioo day, and it is on a par with tlie
rest uf the Martinite campaign. One
paragraph says: "I desire io know
all your requirements, nnd imsnm you
they shall be met as soon as possible."
This of course is nn intimation that
money could be obtained if necessary,
as well ns n furl her intimation thnt the
programme of promises is not yet exhausted, The flushing touch Is na

hns pledged bis word that Hon, Joseph
Martin is the paragon of perfection

Here we find a circular, proved, by the
envelopes to have bum printed a week
ago, dated ahead, und Sunday declared
the'day of publication so far as the
electors are concerned, It is unnecessary lo comment at length upon these
disgraceful tactics, and l his only goes
to proclaim, trunipettnngued, that If
Hon, Joseph Martin should by any
chance be sustained in oflice, the interests of British Columbia will at all
times Ik* in jeopardy, If any eleitor

mislead and misrepresent should be
sufficient to suggest llm candidate lie

not doubt the electors of Rossland

the ex-governor has the original letter
in his possession, und Mr. Curtis did
not deny It when he met him
face to face, More lhan this; Mr,
Mackintosh showed ut several public
meetings that Mr, Smith Curtis had'
telephoned from Grand Forks to the
Hank of Montreal at Rossland several
days before tho payment ou the Sunset
full due asking whether or not the
money was In the hank, and received
the reply that so soon as the deeds
were sent to thu hank I he money would
he paid over, Again Mr, Mackintosh
established the fact hy producing ll
letter from Mr. Brown that the person
hud written to bim (,n the 15th of
Septemher, 1801), telling bim that he
wns perfectly willing that tho deal
should be considered olf, Alter ull,
however, circumstance* go to show
that Marl inism is dying hard. Nevertheless, why should u man who aspires
to represent a large constituency like
that of Rossland riding descend to so
low a deplh as to endeavor to besmirch
a man who bas met him lu a candid,
open, honest and manly fashion on
every occasion possihleP Yet there
are some of the electors who imagine
they c.iii vote for Mr. Smith Curtis

Unmanly Tactics.
Mr. Smith Curtis has for some time
posed as an honest and upright believer in fair play. At various meetings throughout the Rossland Riding
he has declared that under no circumstances would he indulge in personal
ities, and would stand or fall by the
Martinite platform. What do we find ?
Atn meeting in Columbia recently he
suited that "Ex-Governor Mackintosh
was the servant of the Dunsuiuirs and
the C, P. R-" Of course, his opponent
wns not present; but Mr. Curtis knows
Well as tlie electors know that Mr.
Mackintosh has over nnd over again
publicly repudiated this assertion;
that he stated he had never had a conference with Mr. Dunsmuir; that he
did not approve of Mr. Dunsmuir's
policy bf employing Chinese or other
Asiatic labor; that he hud no connection, directly or indirectly, with the
0. P. R. ; that he was a candidate in
the interests of the Kootenay country,
and that he would stand or fall by that
pledge. What could hn mealier than
tliis policy ol del ruction ? What could
more thoroughly prove thut Mr, Curtis
Ib u beaten man? Over and over
again, in tlie presence of Mr. Smith
Curtis, thc ex-governor has proven by
documentary evidence that the slanders directed at him bad no foundation
whatever. To refer to another subject:
At Grand Forks on Saturday night
last the-Martinite candidate was accompanied by one. R. A. Brown, the
partner of Messrs. Martin and Curtis
in a properly known as the Sunset in
the Similkameen district. He (Mr.
Smith Curtis) introduced tho Sunset
question a,s a. factor in this campaign ;
and upon written evidence being produced, signed hy Mr. Brown, showing
that Mr. OurUs and Mr. Martin were
