the A nuapolis Naval Academy by
President McKinley and is ou his

BIG ORE OUTPUT
New York, May 18.—The evidence is not lacking, says the Tribune's correspondent, that there
will be a South African Mining
boom before many weeks. Johnau
nesbtirg is gradually filling, the
mines are re-opening and arrange
ments are making for the re-organ
ization of the government of the
town. The, re-opening of the
"Kaffirs circus" would have at
least one good result—it would engross the atteutiou of the capitalists class aud allow it less leisure
for meddling in the government of
the new British colonies. Some of
Milner's recent appointments in
the Transvaal have excited much
criticism. Tbe eight powerful
groups of capitalists'have been represented too conspicuously in these
appointments anda feeling of distrust have beeu created which
tends to retard the pacification of
Soufh Africa. It is said that Gen:
Botha as soon as he learned that
Sir Alfred Milner was about to
leave South Africa, sent a mounted message to Gen. Kitchener with
a view to the re-openiug of peace
negotiations. Gen, Botha wanted
to communicate with Mr. Kruger,
but Lord Kitchener said he could
have no dealings with the ex-president.
We want te oall your attention to the

MAFEKING  DAY.
Today is the first anniversary of
the relief of Mafeking, it being just
a year ago that Baden-Powell and
his gallant little garrison were set
free and the besieging Boers driven
off by Col. Mahon's force. What
a shout went up all over the empire when the newB arrived, and
will anyone iorget the celebration
here and in other Kootenay camps.
The relief of Ladysmith, Kimberley and other towus, while gladly
received,.produced no such furore
as was witnessed on Mafeking day.
The length of the siege, 213
days, and the gallant defense offered, turned the eyes of the civilized world on this little speck in the
African map. The garrison had
flashed out dispatches to the Queen
during the long siege declaring
their loyalty and unalterable determination to hold the town at all
costs. They were hard pressed
and it looked as if they must give
in before relief could reach them.
We had already heard of too many
white flag affairs during the campaign and too many disasters to
make the daily war bulletins at all
pleasant reading, so that the plucky
and resourceful stand of Baden-
Powell and his men came as a welcome change.
And so it happened that a year
ago today Rossland, in common
with the rest of the empire, went
wild over the raising of the third
longest siege in modern history.
The Boer war still drags on aud
many brave men have fallen almost
unnoticed, but Mafeking has made
a niche for itself in the world's
temple of fame.
nual distribution at Ottawa when
the province greatly needed aid,
remains unmistakably clear.
That the needs of a great and
growing province should be quietly
set aside upon any of the grounds
alleged, paltry and miserable as
they all are, is not a pleasant matter to think about.
In the last campaign in Yale-
Cariboo the one consistent cry of
the Galliher supporters was: "If
we are to get aid from a Liberal
government we must elect a Liberal member." Well, we elected a
staunch supporter of the government and much good it has accomplished. It is impossible ta
imagine that Mr. Foley, had he
been returned, could have had less
weight and influence with the
party in caucus or with the cabinet
than Mr. Galliher has succeeded
iu proving he himself has. It
would have been stronger and
wiser to have chosen Mr. Foley.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Under the headline of "Just
dawning upon them now," the
Lardeau Eagle says: "The Rossland Miner says editorially: There
seems to be a remarkable unanimity
of opinion that one. of the chief
factors among the causes which
are responsible for the temporary
depression which is felt in local
mining circles is the failure of certain influential parties entrusted
with the management of large
properties to properly conduct their
affairs."
The Canadian Socialist league,
with headquarters in Toronto, has
arranged to place an organizer in
the field. He will visit British
Columbia during the summer and
the organization throughout the
province will be put into practical
shape.

A Queer Lay-Out.
NO RAILWAY SUBSIDY.
In the Dominion estimates just
brought down no provision is made
for any railway subsidy for British
Columbia. It is admitted that this
province contributes more per capita to the federal revenue than any
other and that it was entitled to
generous treatment at the hands of
the government. Mr. Dunsmuir
and Mr. Eberts, on behalf of the
province, visited Ottawa in January
last and, it is said, placed our
claims for special consideration before the Dominion cabinet. It has
been apparently without any results.
And now see the beauty of party-
politics and watch the hide bound
party press. The Tory papers
throw all the- blame upon the Liberal government and appeal to the
electors to remember at the proper
time how Messrs. Templeman,
Maxwell, Morrison and Galliher
succeeded in forcing our claims
for recognition upon the party.
The Grit press in turn, driven into
a corner if the truth be said, evolve
several reasons for the omission.
Our provincial government, they
say, is really so very bad that it
could not lie trusted and Sir Wilfrid preferred waiting until a
change came about in the British
Columbia ministry. Others less
skilfully admit that our representatives were divided and did not
pull together. Had the members
from Victoria iu the house been
Liberals all would have been well,
and in that event the fact of Maxwell not being in good standing
with the powers that be would
not have prevented a grant beiug
given.
While the party press are quarreling with one another over the
reason,the unpleasant fact, that we
have been passed over in the   au-

What a queer lay-out you are I
Down so low and op so high;
Like the kites the kiddies fly.
First you're rich and then you're poor;
Now in good—then "barren" ore:
Letting out and widening in
Whi9per, Bay I who holds the string ?
I-'all'n Irom your position proud,
Now you're hid behind a cloud.
Is that cloud born of the skies,
Or merely duBt to blind our eyes?
Does it really mean good night;'
Or is it just a game ol 'kite ?'
None ol ns know what to think,
Can't you twinkle us a wink?
Lord I hut 'twas an awful dive
From where you stood to tbirty-flve:
But I got out at dollar ten,   -
At thirty cents I'm in again.
I'd dearly like to buy some more:
But what about that 'barren' ore?
Just whisper now—I'll stand the shock,
Does 'barren' ore mean 'barren' rock ?
And you, proud Eagle bird of war I
Are you still to sick to roar,
Are your plumes in such a mess,
Tbat you scream in such distress?
Don't your 'innarals' feel quite right,
Or is it true that 'parasite,'
Has left you sadly in the lurch?
Cheer up! we'll fumigate your perch.
Vou were ne'er so sick before,   , ,
Are you loo in barren ore? ..
Tray relieve my keen suspense,
I'm holding you at ninety cents.
When 'Monsieur Le Banen's' gone,
'Way back, home to lix his lawn'
I'raps you'll take another Highr,
If so scream 'Yea' and set me riarht.

The latest news from London by

The special settlements in Rosslands and Kootenays have been

the recent advance iu the shares
there was some disposition to secure profits. As regards other descriptions a hesitating tendency
