Mr. K. C. Jttnlih, the Martin candidate, keld a meeting at Forrest bill Ir.st
night—his first in Cranbrook,
The Herilil haa deemed Mr. Smith a
fair, conscientious, men heretofore, mad
does yet, but il must aa; right here that
the acta of some of hU supporter! are unfair in the extreme, suggestive of hood-
lumtsm, and does not bear out the oft
repeated assertion of the regard of the
Britain for fair play.
The meeting last night was opened by
the selection of J. M. Robinson as president, who introduced Mr. ti. C. Smith,
tbe government candidate. Mr. Smith
mad* a short talk regarding his candi*
dacy. Ab has been the case heretofore,"
the Herald will report no speeches, hut
comment on the meeting from a purely
independent standpoint.
Mr. Smith made » short talk—better
one probably than many were prepared
to' hear.    He done it neatly and decently.
He was followed by Mr. Feruie) who
answered some statements made by Ur.
Smith, from his view of those questions;
iiis remarks further were much the same
as at his own meeting. Mr. Fernie was
in "belter form" than previously—at
least be injected a little more spirit iu
liis remarks.
Mr. Cosligan waacalled alter Mr. Fernie, which was apparently nn unfair
proposition, ns tbe meeting was Mr.
Smith's and T. S. lias;ter, of Vancouver,
was the speaker of tbe evening—or Mr.
Smith's mouthpiece, nud both Messrs.
Costigan and Feruie should bave had
their time after tbe main speaker in or-
.l-.-r   to   refill--*,   H thev rouM,   his -arpti
ment against tbem and in favor of bis
Thla procedure ou the put of the Martin men was manifestly most unfair aud
unprecedented in matters of this kind,
heir-tying a disposition to leave no stone
unturned by means fair or foul to accomplish juxess.
Costigan Makes a Bad Break.
Mr, Costigan in his opeiing remarks
justly niada reference to this, but when he
alluded to;thr main speaker of tha evening in the terms he did, to put it mildly,
lie made • great mistake. Personalities
at the best are much to be deprecated
in debate or private conversation, especially when they border on coarseness,
>r are accompanied by epithets. While
with soma people they may be regarded
as the result of "ability." it Is not the
kind of ability that goes toward making
people better or lauding to elevate the
standard of intelligence nnd Morals. It
almost invariably reacts upon the speaker, falling upon many ef his auditors who
may kave beeu possessed of a certain
■mount ol admiration for him, like a
wet blanket. Nor does passing the lie
prove anything in an argument, eapec
islly fiom a public plalform before an
audience of ladies and gentlemen—and
hoodlums, winuiug with the latter, even,
only if lhey are with ibe speaker.
The mat] wbo allows himself to "lese
hi* head" lo the e-steut of indulging in
uvea language In a debate im mediately
places himself at his opponent's mercy,
If the latter lie cool-headed.
The Speaker of Ike -Eveilif,
T. S. Iisater of Vancouver, is spoken ef
by lhr government -tyuipathizers ei
" whirlwind." To some extent this 1j a
proper title. He is a nervous, active
man, quick to note au advantageous
opening) jusi as quick to reap the benefit fiom tt by getting in a wordy uppei-
CUti or a blow ovi-r tbe heart withal,
lhc Herald will not Hay he was without ptovocitiou, but it was nut su liic lent
lo call for leferetice by Innuendo or
otherwise, to past mutters in Mr. Costi-
({alt's private life—matters nut fu any
way calling into (piestion either his ability or integrity, and mailers frots which
Mr. Ccsiigau bimself aud his family weie
the only sufferers. It was cowardly and
contemptible, and will be regarded in
that light by all people possessed of a
kpiiit of justness. Mr. Costigan and Mr.
Feruie as well, have done nothing but
cluan work in this way, ami the Herald
believes tlmt local partisans more than
Mr. Busier, are responsible for the deed.
The Herald has not the slightest hesitancy in emphasizing thc astettion that
it was uncalled for, .cowardly aud contemptible.
Mr, Baxter otherwise proved himself
a very clever platform talker, but makes
very many rash statements which he
often fails to substantiate oihei wise than
hy assertion, lie is evidently possessed
of abilities as a political speaker-—
not from a point of dry, solid reasoning,
but in the way of being "catch**" with an
audience through sarcasm, incisive sentences, and caustic tepartee.
Other isddesli.
Aside from the features above noted
there were two Jotliars calling for attention—the presence of about 40 ladies,
and Ibe conduct of a number of people,
The Union Jack
Waves in Pretoria
Kruger Is Hitting the High Spots
Bulletins received this morning stated that
"Bobs " was within two miles of Pretoria and that
he would enter without resistance. The news has
created the wildest excitement in London, as well as
throughout the British possessions. Kruger is making his escape to a steamer in waiting to convey him
to Holland.
Cranbrook is red with national colors.
There Was No Organized Celebration
in Cranbrook,
whose identity is unknown to and un-
cared for by The Herald.
The presence of good women nt political Meetings-—those attended by gentle-
nen—is a Most desirable feature. Their
presence among gentlemen will restrain
the use of hatsh, intemperate language.
Men wbo kave no respect for the ladies,
have no respect for themselves and huve
certainly anived at a deplorable condition iu life.   Tbe Herald bas tittle doubt
Aa for the ''hoodlums," as before
stated, The Herald knows not nnd cares
less, as to wbo composed the gang. The
fact ia tbat men wbo nre so lacking in
gentlemanly attributes or common decency to give all people a respectful
bearing, especially when lhey are Invited
to express themselves, are worthy of no
other name than hoodlums. The belter
way for people lo express their disapproval of a speaker, aud the more effective, is to simply leave the ball, if they
can uot remain and be otherwise than a
Brief Letters rrom Two   Members of the
Slrsthcoua Horse.
Cape Town, April, 17II1, 190:1.
Dear Mate Just a few lines to let
you know that all is'well. and tbe boys
are getting along fine.
We got iuto camp here 011 the eve of
the i2th, aud I believe are doomed to
stay hare for aboat six weeks, owing to
several cases of glanders having developed among our horses; this don't nuil
ng at all, as we are all anxious to get lo
tha front.
There is a great deal less excitement
over the war hete than there is in Cana-
ada.auditis almost-impossible to get
any reliable war news. At present they
are expecting to bear of some decisive
move ou-.tttk part of Roberts, as lhey
kave uot heard from him for some time
aud it ia bis fashion to move very quietly, and without any warning.
This Is a very pretty lown and at
present Ika weather Isexception.dly fine,
but I don't like the people at all—they
are so alow; the redeeming feature is the
fruit, and there is lots of that. The
blacks seem to be iu the majority bere,
and what pitalea ne ia thai the whites
mix so freely wilh ibeui; I never saw so
Many mulaUoes In my life.
Tbere is a great deal of shipping doue
iu this port, that is if there are always
as nany vessel* in the harbor as there
are at tbe present.
Give asy hest respects  fo  everybody
aid be sure and sand some papers.
Yours truly,

Cape Town, April 16th, 1900.
Ur. Tate—Dear Sir aud Brother: I ex
peet you have given tip all expectations
of ever hearing from me bul I I hough I I
wi-tuld wait until J got here, then I could
tell you bow I was getting along. We
are all here at last and expect tu go to
the front this week but of course wt
cau't tell as yet. The place is full of
soldiers aud Uoers, There is about 501
of tbe latter prisoners beie aud mote
coming. Some try lo escape, but they
shoot tbem down lilce dogs; when they
were sending some to St. Helena, going
down tbe wharf, one tried lo escape and
a soldier shot him at once. Tbey me a
rough lot, I cau tell you, attired in all
ways; some iu our uniform even.
Quite a lot of tba first contingent nre
bere 011 tbe sick list, as well ns lhe regulars of course. They tell great stories
about tbe work going on at the front;
the most of them want to go back; others say they have had enough and want
to go home. They speak very highly of
the fighting qualities of the Canadians.
The ."Black Watch" ssy they nre
"terriers", so do the "Seaforth Highlanders." I have not the time to wiitc
a longer letter tbis time. Kudosed find
tbe amouut marked ou your books:'

The Queen's birthday wasnot celehcaU
1 by Cranbiook as a lown, although
the most of her citizens celebrated either
by attending the demonstration at Pernie or Moyie, by picnic!ng up Ibe St
Mary's river, nt the falls, or in the
groves nearer town.
Iu the morning two conches loaded
with citizens departed for Fernie; the
cold threatening weather of that morn
ing deterred ninny from going, as it
looked aa though the day might be a
stormy one. As it turned out Ihe
weather at Feruie was quite unfavorable,
but all came home that night feeling
tbat tbey bad experienced a very pleas
nut time, and feeling amply repaid for
their time and money expended.
Very few attended the Moyie celebration—not because they wou'd not have
been very glad to do so, but because il
was an almost absolute certniuty thai
tbey would not be able to get a train
borne before Ibe next day uuon. However, those who did attend say that they
bad a most enjoyable time, and "got a
run for .their money." They ray tbat
Sam Morrow and George III)Hard represented the high-rollers of Cranbrook in
a very creditable manner, while the former got away wilh all competitors a;
u lilting the shot.
A number of citizens who did nol feel
that tbey could spore tbe time that it
would lake to go away on a general celebration or whose families were such that
tney could not well take all or leave any
at home, either went up the St. Mnry'.s
011 the branch train in the morning, returning in the evening, or picniced in
the adjoining groves iu tbe afternoon
Among the foi mer were Messrs. Urt-m
lier and John Fraser and tbeir families,
Kcv. Fortune and wife, Mr. nnd Mrs.
Morrow, Mrs. I,uashy, the Misses (Irani,
Card IDs, aud Slua; also Messrs, Gurd,
Nation and "Doc." Bell, To prevent
any possibility of mtntakes it may be
Well to add that the family feature ol
Ibis little party does imt apply to Messrs.

A quiet liltle picnic party was thnt ol

played tbeie ibe score was 32 to 11 in favor of the Crnnbrook boys, Craubrook
went to liai lirst and finished the Inulug
with i ruu to the good. Tbe Feruie
boys wenl oui without scoring, and in
ibe second innings Craubrook made two
more rims. In this Fernie also made
lwo runs. Iu the third and fourth innings Cranbrook wcutout without making n run, bul in lhe last half of the
fourth Ferule made 7. putting tbem t>
11 head. In the fifth Cranbrook made 2
and Ft*rnii* 15, batting the ball all over
the lield. In tne sixth neither teams
•cored, and as lhe score stood 21 to 5 in
favor ofthe home team tbe Cranbrook
captain was asked to lei the other three
innings go, as a lot of lime had already
been taken up, but he refused ami insisted on playing lhe fail nine. In the
seventh Crailbrook went out without
scoring, while Fernie made three runs
fu llie eighth each team made two tuns
In the nimb Cranbrook made two mote,
leaving the score 26 tog in favor of Fertile, with an Innings to spate.
Tbe big score can be put down to
heavy batting principally, the Fernie
boys after the third tnnTofes, set tiling lo
but thc ball whenever tbey liked, numerous two and three baggers and home
inns being made.
The score by innings was as follows:
1    2    3   4    5    6    7   S   9

The Football flame.
It was almost 7 o'clock btfore the
Cranbrook—Fernie football match got
started. This proved another splendid
game and resulted in a tie after an hour
aud forty-live minutes play, Cranbrook
made two goals in tbe first half to Fernie'- one. When^t Is considered tbat the
Fernie boys had already played two
hours and a half with a good leant it
need not be wondered at when it is
stated that in ibis game they hail not
quite the same vim as in tbe previous
match. Nevertheless they put up a fine
game nud tbeir comhinaliou work was
even belter Iban In the first game, the
Cranbrook boys bung uuable to break
it up.
Shortly after the second half started
Craubrook made another goal making
thescore3to i, but ibe Fernie boy:
were now kicking with tbe wind and
before time was called made two goals.
It was decided to play ten minutes
each way, bul at the end neither bad
scored Two more trials of five minutes
each way was made, but neither scored,
and as time was up for ibe Cranbrook
team to leave, the game was declared
a draw.
Ths Trap Shoot.
Only two learns contested in this
event. The Lelhbridge Gun Club prom
ised to send a team, but they failed t(
put in an appearance, so the  shoot  was
between Cranbrook and Fernie. Tht
Cranbrook boys did uot expect to win
iu fact the team was got together by Mr.
A. Moflatt, just at the last tiilnute and
some-of them had not done any Irap
shooting for years, A strong wind wai
blowing ttt the time, which mnde the
hooting difficult, so no very good scores
vero made.   Following is the result:

the events iu which Craubrook was Interested. The Craubrook boys did 1101
fare very well, owing to au unfortunate

Begins What May Prove To Be Exlea-
.ive Minimi Operations
The Brillsh-Amettcan Corporation,
better knov a as the B. A. C. Co., tbe
greatest mining company in britisb Columbia, and owner of the richest mines iu
this province, is about to begin extensive
operations on Perry creek, within 20
miles of Craubrook. Tbe company own
eight claims in ihat district, as follows:
The Ferry, Maybe, Manhattan, Hose-
nan-, Gotdbug, Southern Girl, Fmnia,
and Dot Fraction.
Mr. D. it. N. Wilkie, of Rossland, arrived in Cranbrook Monday to secure
met: and supplies for doing a full sea-
sou's work of development He was
accompanied by A. T. Pollcl, who will
have supervision. Teu miners were seined and supplies sufficient for a long
season have been purchased, and has been
taken in on pack horses by j. 11, Mc-
If development results as anticipated,
tbis will prove to be but the beginning
of a new era of mining in hast Koote-
—'.hat by which depth ;s attained.
Tbe progress of tbe work will be watched
with muchinterest, as well as anxiety by
the citizens of South Kast Kootenay, for
upon its success largely depends lhe
question as to whether there are to be
any ledge gold mining camps iu Una
Tbe fact that years ago and for a loug
jfcriod of lime Perry creek was the scene
of very tich placer operations, and also
tbat at the present time operations of
the same taiure are succeesfully carried
on, though -with much smaller returns,
gives reasonable ground for tbe belief
tbat at or tear the head of Perry creek
will Ik found the source of tbe millions
which were taken from the creek about
yj years ago. If successful, it will demonstrate tbat S-jU'.b .Kast Kootenay
will take place among the greatest producers on the continent of all the
precious minerals.
h HI Begifl Work on Ibe Pedro.
An initial contract, calling for thirty
feet of work has been let ou Ibe Pedro.
Tbe Pedro is the property of ibe Kootenay and Algoma Company, and although
nothing more than Stripping bas been
done the showing thus made is a most
promising oue. For a distance of 200
feet; it is claimeb. the surface bas been
crosscut at int(i?_ls 1 creating ore bearing
ratuea in gold, silver, cop;*r and lead
giving an average of $:15, Tbe ledge is
from 14 inches 104 feet wide on the surface. Uf course nothing can be absolutely determined without much labor in
getting under the ground, as to the continuity of the ledge and the ore, or Its
richness. The surface showings, however, justify strong hopes for the Pedro
making a mine with a reasonable amount
of development, It is in a good district,
and on!;,-about a half mile from the
Norlh Star branch railway, near ita
terminus at Marysville.
II Waa a Mistake.
It was stated iu   the   Herald   of   last
cek that   ' one Tully"   had   beeu   arrested for committing  nu   ussault   upon
the person of Charles S. Tripp, afterward
being arrested and mud $5.   The facts
in the ense Hie that Tnl-y was .simply an
unwilling witness of the affair, and that
bis mime, appearing ns such in thc warrant for the arrest of thc renl culprit,
wan Inadvertently given to the Herald
reporter iusiead of that of Willard, tinman who was arrested for lhe offense as
charged anil lined f5, instead of "Tully."
Mr. Tully is wl-ii spoken of by those
who know him best, and given lhe
character ol a peaceful, law-abiding
cltlxen, ami the lletahl regietu that his
name wn« connected with the nlTail in a
matter unjust to him.

To the Electors
Of the South (last Kuutciiuy Electoral,
Killing :
Gentlemen: I am a candidate for your
suffrages at thc approaching election of
a representative tor Soulh Bast Kootenay In the Provincial Legislature, nnd I
make my appeal for your support as a
candidate iu opposition to the present
Martin Government. While I expect to
have lhe opportunity from time to time
before the 9th of June of discussing the political situation upon the public platform
and of clearly defining my position upon
all questions of importance arising iu
this campaign, it is perhaps but right
that 1 should lake tbis earlier opportunity
of announcing my plalform upon the
more prominent questluus of lhe hour.
Then-litre 1 Will Advocsle:
1. The active development of all the
natural resources ol the province, not
merely in proportion 10 actual annual
revenue, but, U necessary, by pledging
tbe credit of Ihe province lo lhat end,
and not by Increasing llie burden of taxation, as suggested by Mr, Minim.
2. A government system of exploration
of lhe natural resources uf lhe province
with a view of ascertaining their locality
and extent, and lhe publication uf full
periodical reports of such exploration,
with maps showing trnil, railway, and
water routes for the Information and
guidance of prospectors ami public generally.
3. A generous policy of encouragement and assistance lo railway construe*
lion throughout lhe province by
cash subsidy, surrounded (by such
careful legislation ns will effectually safeguard the interests of the people.
The necessity for railway development
throughout the province is apparent to
all; but uuder the present conditions nnd
limited revenue of the province I decline
to commit myself lo a policy of provincial government construction, operatlou
and ownership of railways. I shall have
more lo sny upon this important question
from the public platform.
4. Tbeestablishmeiit and maintenance
of a technical school of mines.
5. Amendment of thc mining ads;
particularly with reference to the inspection of mines and their greater safety;
and with reference to assessment work,
claim-jumping, elc , and the ohviation,
as far as postlble, of the necessity of litigation in connection therewith.
6 The government of British Columbia by and for the people of Ullllsll Columbia; and the fair, impartial nud honorable   administration   cf  the   public
works   and   other   public affairs of lhe
province, irrespective of local or political
7. The exclusion of federal party lines
from British Columbia politics until the
impossibility of stable government upon
such n basis bas beeu clearly demon)]
st rated to both federal parties.
j 8. The encouragement aud develop-
J ment nf farming, dairying, stock-raising,
! find fruit-growing in the agricultural dis-
' tricls of ilie province.
9. The establishment of a Bureau of
Labor mid Mining Statistics, under the
control of n competent official exercising the functions of an arbitrator in the
settlement of issues and disputes endangering lhe peace, progress and commercial interests of the community; thus
avoiding, hs fnr as possible, the delay.
annoyance and expense of protracted
10 Greater expedition in the issue of
Crown grants, and prompt departmental
settlement of disputed claims.
11. The exclusion of Mongolian lahor
Irom competition with white labor within the province by all constitutional
means* remember lug always thut we are
part of 11 great empire whose sovereign
Is entitled to our loyal support iu the
mighty task of that empire's government,
12. The district of South Kast Koote
nay being essentially a milling district,
the eight hour law is naturally a subject
ol vital importance to us, I have given
this tjliestiou a great deal of careful and
conscientious consideration, nnd I am
convinced that justice and the best Interests ofthe country demand thnt with
reference to this law it must be a case of
"HANDS OFF." If elected, I shall
strenuously oppose any attempt to interfere with the law as it now stands (except, perhaps, so far as to exempt from
its operation a prospector personally doing assessment work ou his own claims )
until such time ns mine-owners nud
mine-worker^ unite ill a formal appeal to
the legislature by a resolution of their
respective associations, for a change In
the* law. It such united appeal be not

If honored wilh the confidence of the
electors of South Kast Kootenay on the

Miss Alma Gauthier, daughter af
Mr. Adelard Ganthfer, proprietor of a
well-known hotel at Thru* Rivers,
Que., enjoys a wide popularity among
her yi nog friends, and they have recently had occasion to rejoice at her ie-
storatiou to health after it serious illness. When a reporter calh d to ascertain the facts of the case Mies Ganthier
was ont of tbe oity on a vi-it, but her
father very gladly oonsented to give
the Btory of her euro. He said:—"I
believe tbat bad it not been for Dr.
Williams' Pink Fills my daughter Almn
might now have been in her grave, and
I wonld be ungrateful indeed if I did
not at all times say a kind word in
favor of the medioiue that restored her
to health. My daughter's health first
began to give way several years ago.
At first the troubln did not appear to
be serious, and we thought she wonld
soon regain her accustomed health.
As time went on, however, this proved
not to bo the case. She grew weaker,
was troubled with headaches, poor ap-
peiite, dizziness and a feeling of almost
constant languor. She was treated by
a good doctor, bnt still there wus no
improvement. She seemed to be
gradually fnding away. If she walked
np stairs t-he, would have to stop several
times to rest on the way. She lost all
her color and her face was as whito almost as chalk. Her trouble was dearly tbat which afHicts so many yonng
women entering womanhood, and we
feared it wonld develop into consumption. One day a friend of the family
urged her to try Dr Williams' Pink
Pills, and she consented, and procured
a couple -of  buAtw.      Before    they    n-sw
quite gone there was n slight improvement in her appetite and we looked upon this as a hopeful sign. Another
half dozen boxes wero procured, and
under their nse she day by day acquired
new strength and new interest in life.
She ia now as healthy a girl as there is
in Three Rivers, with every trace of
her pallor and langour gone. This is
entirely due to Dr. WilliamB* Pink
Pills, and I am rejoiced to be able to
say so publicly."
The case of Miss Gauthier certainly
carries with it nleston toother parents,
whose daughters may be pale, languid,
easily tired, or subjept to headaches,
or the other distressing symptoms that
mark the onward progress of anaemia.
In cases of this kind Dr. William.)'
Piuk Pills will give more certain and
speedy reMilts than any other medicine.
They act promptly and directly,making new, rich red blocd.and strengthen
the nerves, and correct all the irregularities incident to tbis critical period.
Sold by all dealers or sent post paid

Cotitrnctor Cameron, like ilie average

around the counliy, and therefote lie was
not greatlv surprlaed lasl Tuesday when
he found a nenl-loolting panel at the of
fice of the Craubrook hotel, addressed
Lo him. He was not expecting anylhiug
ofthe nature which the parrel apparently
contained—snuielhiug in the way of dry
goods—but he reasoned to lllinsell lhat
it must be all rif;lit, and that some of
the boys who had gone east must have
sent liim bark a Hitle present j ist lo remind him that iiltli-jitf'.b absent lltey had
not forgotten Iilm,
So Cameron to k Ibe package, saying
wiihln himself, "The buys are all right;
tbey nevei forget a fifeiit), even though
they may be nn tbe other side of the

the parcel and exposed to lhe view of
tbe bystanders a gorgeous retl wrapper
and a dainty handkerchief.

saying that he never before saw anything
