Golden Hospital.
A moetin-j of the Golden Hospital com
tnitttw una held on Tueadn> evening In
connection with nurse Holt's kn-e ot
absence. I .appears that inn-He IT",
bus not been well lately, and desiring
a holidny to recuperato sho obtained
permission from the medical suporln-
rendunr. Dr. Taylor, and ihosocretary.
Mr. Robbitie, to g< to tbe itoaat for a
trip. There wero very few pati-nis in
tho lioepitnl at the time and it was a
favon\b]o'ip|ortutiity in tbe interest of
the Institution for her to get away.
Mr Uo'-bitiH took the precaution to
erruime to have a nnrs' here iinirjHH
lately if rcquirod. It eppema that
aome of tin* cotmitiiteeiook uutbruuea*
nurso H'dtV b*nve of ubsence and at
the meeting a resolution was parsed
thut in fit'ii re no leave of absence be
granted to the Medical Superintendent
or Nutae without the Hpecial consent
of tbe Board. Very grent regret is expressed In town at the action taken bv
the Committee, as it is ad mined on all
handa that nurse Holt haa doue splendid work <-t the hospital and has been
a universal favorite with the patients
and silbrtorihers Beaidea the etiquette
of hospital management places tbe
nursing staff under contiol of ihe medl
oal miperindent. In ihis case the hospital haa been es|��oially fortunate in
having an able all-round staff, medical
so peri a undent, nurse and secretary*,
and better officers oould not be found.
It Is therefore most unfortunate that
tho committee should have gone out
of Its way to adopt a course which can
only tend to creating friction In an institution so well managed hitherto,
especially seeing that every precaution
had been taken that the instltutiou
ahould not suffer In case of emergency
irom the absence of tlie nurse.
To the Electors of North East Kootfiijay.
Having received tbo nomination cf a Urge portion of the Eleotora
of this DiAtrict as Candidate in the Liberal-Conservative interest for
tbe legislative Assembly at tho forthcoming General Election, I have the
houuur hereunder to place More you my viewft on some of the moi*
import unt Political issues of tbe day,
In order to inspire conflleiice in the investing pul-lic and to eni��ur#
to the Province the prosperity whioh j* its due, it is of the first import'
ance tt.dt tbo present *ute of pur lysis and chaos, whicli unfortunately
exists in ihe Legislative Assem-dy Ht Vi 'oria, should bo replaced by one
ut liu-i.ie-f! activity and urder. Thia cuu only be effected by putting In
p ner tt i.odv of pructicul men having the complete confidence of the
people .iiui ;. thorough knowledge of thoir wants, and being bound together
by a comwuniti of imevesis wtneh will keep thein a solid party, with a
de nine policv, nnd one leader, after Mr. Martin mid his abortive Cabinet
have been defeated mid iliBci-editL'tl, Tbe only solid party now lu the field
ia the uuu tu which I beioug and wbicb I pie ge myself to support.
The first plank on our platform is to activeU aid the construct ic rt
of trails und roads in the undeveloped portions of the Province, My
iiitiinatti knowledge of this District would etinble me to make known your
requirements in this respect; and the deve!op*n< nt uf North Bast Kootenay
will ulwuys be my chief aim. I lieiiev-e it would be rossilde to devi&e a
ao lieu ie wherein the mineral claims of uue particular section migh*. be
m -It -o Oontrib ite n share of the cost of any trunk road which would
benefit limn nil; and I am in fa-tour of such a scheme.
I am opposed to the granting of a bonus to nny Hailway Company
which iloes not give the Government, control of its rates and an option oi
I am in favo.tr of, and would support, any practical scheme whereby the agricultural resources of the Province would receive assistance
from ihe Guvernmeut; so that as far as possible each District might raise
the KuppliiH required lor its own mines, aud thus reap the full benefit ol
tbe development of its mineral resources.
The Agency of tbe Province in London, which, under the "penny-
wUe mid pound-foolish" policy of tbe late Administration, has become
restricted mi-i ineffective, should lie at once, placed oo a more efficient
basis, with a representutive, proper I v p.-iid, who would be capable of sup-
ply in. rellnblo Information to British Capitalists; ko that they would
realise bow favorable a field this Province offers for profitable investment.
Iu regard to the Eight Hour Law, any amendments which would
render the Uw acceptable to both Miners and Mine Owners would receive
mv strongest support. The um.ending of this'law is of vital importance-
to the Province und must be takon in hand by men who have at least-
some practical know lodge of Miners and Mining.
Hospitals and Medical Men in the outlying portions ofthe Province
should receive more geuerous assistance from tbe Government than they
do at present. s
Evqry effort should be made toi discourage Oriental immigration.
In conclusion. I wo-rid say that I am oppos-d to any legislation
auch as the Allen Aot, which tends to . str-iiKe Capital and hinders tbe
development of our resouices.

London, April 20.��� The arrival of
Gen. Oarrington at Eeira, Portuguese
Eaat Atrica, and a reiteration of the re*
port that the Boer, intend blowing np
the Johannesburg mines nre the ouly
items of new*, thnt mark today's war
cables. Weeks mnst elapse before Qen.
Oarrington will lv able to concentrate
hi. foroes on the border, of tbe Transvaal or approach Mufekiug. According
to a rumor iu circulation ttt Lorenzo
Marques a Dorr forco has been sent to
Intercept (Jen. Oarrington, but it is not
thought to bo of B.illicioat strength to
cause anxiety.
A proclamation tssnetl at Oape Town
today allow, trading between Oape
Oolony and the occupied portions of the
Orange Free State to be resumed.
A patrol of Oape polioe near fioshof
yesterday captured two Boers, some
oxen, wagon, and 200 head of oattle.
Two Germans, who recently arrived
at Oape Town, have heen sentenced to
a year's isnprisonment for having sns-
ploiou. possession of 100 rifle, and 600
cordite cartrld.es.
The Lorenzo Ma* qnes correspondent
of Ihe Daily Mail, telegraphing Wednesday, say.: "Two hundred and flity
Boen started yesterday from Water-
vaal, marching through Zoutpan.berg
district, to intercept Geu. Oarrington'.
There are 2,000 men .ick in the field
hospitals, many cases being of dysentery and enterio fever. With the exception of these foot., the embargo on
war news is almost complete. The
speoial correspondents send trivialities,
or statements which obssenre rather
than explaiu the situation in their
efforts to prepare matter that will pas.
the censor. Here and there a phrase
indicates au expectancy that large
things are abont. to happen.
London, April 20.���A delugeof rain,
lasting ten days, has brought the operations in tbe southeastern part of the
Free State almost to a stnnd.till. The
creeks have become roaring riven,
and the roads are streams of mad.
A singular message dated Bloemfontein, April lB.and beginning, via press
censor, Bloemfontein, report, an exchange of snots in the direotion of De
Wet's Dorp, where the Boers are Mid
td be concentrating, "after tbeir withdrawal from Wepener." There is nothing else to indicate that tbe investment of Wepener has been abandoned
hy the Boers'. Notwithstanding the
rain, however, the British have made
some progress, as DeWet's Dorp has
been occupied by them, probably by
the advance of Gen. Bundle's division.
DeWet's Dorp is about 34 miles north of
Wepener. An obscure menage from
Aliwal North, dated April 10. suy.
that Gen. Brabant has arrived there;
but whether he returned alone or with
hi. troop, is not dear. Boer report,
from Aliwal North aver that ftom 8,*
000 to 10,000 Boen are at Wepener.

Acora, Gold Ooast Oolony, West Afrioa, April 20���-The governor, Sir
Frederick Mitohell Hodgson, wire,
from Enmaisi that tho other tribe, are
riling again and he oak. for assistance.
The loyal Bekui. bare been attacked
by the Ashantees, and 600 of them
have been killed. It is feared that thia

A np-itter cf the St. Catharine.
Journal vi.itlng Welludport not long
ago, heard of oue ot thon remarkable
oun. that have made Dr. William.'
Pluk Pills famous as life seven the
world over. The oase is thst of Parley
Ulsaer, son of Mr. Mathiu Mlsner,
who had suffered from hip joint dlsetse
ud ibsoesms, ud who hid bun under
tbe can of four doott ra withont bene-
flolal remits. Mr. Mituer govt the
putioulan of Ihe oase as follows: "In
ths spring of 1899 my son,. Parley,
wbo was then in his thirteenth year,
began to complain of an aching in his
hips, an J later my attention wai directed to a peculiar shamble in bis
gait As the trouble gradually gnw
npon him I took him to a pbyiioian in
Dunvllle, who examined him ud uid
the trouble arose from a weskneu of the
nems of the hip. This dootor trosted
Parley for weeks, during whioh time a
large abscess formed on his leg, tnd ht
wu obliged to get abont un orutchea.
At ht continued to decline, I resolved
to try another, doc.tqr, who diagnosed
the oom u hip Joint disease.  He treat-
,ed Parley for six months. Tha lad
���lightly improved at flnt, but lata
wu taken went again. He wonld
startle in hi. deep ud wm continually in dlttreu u be could neither sit nor
recline with ease, ud wu weak, faint
and confused. During this time the
absosn hid broken ud wu discharging in thne plaoM, bnt wonld not
heal. A third doctor advised a tnrgi,
otl operation, which ha objected, to,
ud a fourth medioal man tben took
the case in baud. This dootor confined
Perley to the bed,-, ud besides giving
medicine, he ordered a meohanlotl appliance to whioh wm attached a 15,
pound weight, to be placed in a posl,
tjon by a polity system so m to con,
stsntly draw downwsrds on the limh,

One would hardly Imagine that the
professional thief wonld be swayed in
his doings by superstition. It Is difficult to conceive, for Instance, u armed burglar, a mu who breaks into
your houu with the fixed Intention of
putting a ballet Into yon or bitting
you over the head with a jimmy If you
surprise him and try to prevent his
escape, being deterred from carrying
out his nefarious plans by the sight ot
a black cat, yet this Is one of the small
things ot life which ore regarded by
thieves aa sufficiently Important to upset a well laid scheme.
Some three or four yean ago a gang
of three men had decided to break Into
the oflice of a large factory and make
an attempt on the Mfe. At certain
times, aa they had found, a large sum
of money wss kept In that ufe for a
day or two, ud on this occasion they
had resolved to divert this money from
going Into Its proper channel and turn
the stream toward themselves.
All the circumstances seemed favorable. Tha factory wu In a lonely part
ud not far from the railway, where
the rattle ot psulng trains would
drown uy noise they might make and
where It wu highly Improbable that
they wonld meet any one as tbey made
their way late at night to the scene of
action. They bad nearly reached the
factory when a cat itarted from a
corner and ran across their path, and
by tba light of the n. in which peeped
forth at that very minute they uw
that It wai black. Immediately tbey
After tome discussion one of them refused to proceed and went tack, while
the othen, although they were nerv*
ous st the thought of 111 luck, went on.
They were caught In the very' act of
drilling a hole In tbe ufe door and i
fenced to long terms.
The sound of a child lobbing tt nlgbt
In a house near the one Into which he
Intends to break Is quite enough to
make many a burglar go back borne,
It is a sure sign of misfortune. Why
this should be so regarded Is not essy to
determine, but perhaps the Idea of In*
nocence usually associated with In*
fonts has some undefined effect upon
the hardened heart of tbe criminal.
There are some who regard the sudden stopping of a clock as an Intimation tbat some friend or relative bas
died at that minute. In tbe same way
If a clock stops Ih a room In wblcb a
burglar Is at work ha will consider it
advisable to leave the premises without delay. This occurred to a man
wbo was recently convicted, and he
sorrowfully remarked to tbe policeman who took him Into custody that If
he had paid heed to the 111 omen he
would Just have got clear before the
master of tbe houu returned.

These symptoms Indicate a

They are unmistakable evidences

Now there's
only one reliable
remedy for restoring strength and vitality
to weakened hearts and relieving all the
distressing symptoms. It is Milburn's
Heart and Nerve Pills.
The ease of Mrs. A. Stratton. Frederie-
ton, N.B,. amply proves this. Here is
her statement i
"I suffered very muoh from an Impoverished condition of the blood, coupled
with extreme nervousness. A dissy sensation on arising quickly or coming down
stairs, often troubled me, and my breath
wai so short that I could not walk up
stairs. The least exertion eaused my
heart to flutter and palpitate violently,
and I sometimes felt a smothering sensation on going to sleep.
I doctored back and forth for my weakness, but I got no rolief from any medicine
until I tried Milburn's Heart and Nerve
Pills, and I ean say that they helped mr
wonderfully. Sometimes my face and
arms would swell and puff, but all these
troubles speedily yielded to the restoring
influences of Milburn's Heart and Nervr
Pills, and I am now strong and well. 1

Opening: of the Fight In North
East Kootenay.
The supporters of W. C Wells held
a meeting in Columbia Hall last Saturday eveniutr, at which a large number
of the friends of Mr. Wells was present. At the opening of the meeting
Mr. Haggen was elected chairman and
In a few appropriate remarks explained
the object of the meeting -thut of Mr.
Wells giving an nccountof his stewardship whilst h member of the late
Legislature. Mr. Wells had done a
great deal for tho district and was a
good man to represent tho poople.
Mr. Wells, on rising, said it was an
easy task for him to give suoh an
Mr-count of himself and was pleused to
do so. He then referred to his being
eleoted by nceiainatiob. but it wns with
much reluctance* he entered upon the
preseut contest, as he had all his
interests in the distriot to look after,
which required considerable attention,
and in representing the district as its
member he fonnd It had taken up much
of his time; iu fact, whilst a member
ho bnd put the constituerto> flrst and
his own affairs seoond. Thus it would
be seen that, to fulfil his duty as a
representative, he had to partly neglect
h's own business. However, thonch
lw had come for the express purpose of
retiring aud declining further nomination, In) was Impressed front a sense of
duty lo his friends 10 accept (t if
nominated, not that he waa ambitious
for political honors, but as so many of
the electors had requested him to 1* a
candidate he felt hehad no other
alternative. He then spoke of his election as a supporter of the late Government nnder the leadership of Mr.
Stimlin, with Manin and Cotton as
prominent members - a Government
which he felt sure had the interests of
the Province at heart. Things went
well for the fiist sessiou, but during
that time he was preseut only about
ten days. However, he had found
only $9,000 had been asked for this
district, which sum be hsd had further
increased to the extent of $4,000. whicli
had beeu well expended in tba interests
of the constituency io building the
bridge at Athalmer - a wise project,
and of great convenience to the publio
at large. He had also nrcured the
removal of the Court House from
Donald to Golden, which amounted to
between tnree and four thousand dollars. Thus it wonld be seen he had
the grant for the district increased 10
the exrent or $7,000. Mr. Wells next
referred to the harmonious way in
which matters had cone until August
of last ytar, when some dissensions
had taken place in tbe Cabinet through
the Detidiuan Island question, when
certain ronsons were given for calling
upon Mr. Martin to resign. He also
referred to the last sessiou of ihe
House, going into details as to how
the Semlin Government was defeated.
He spoke of Martin being called upon
to form a Cabinet and said be wae
precluded from being a possible supporter of Murt in's Cabinet from its
formation; and if eleoted. he wished
to ro present thi-t conitrueney trammelled by no party alliance*. He sal
lie must go Velying oft his'oWtt Jung-
ment, gotten hy the rWultn of the
election throiigho'ut'tfee Province. He
claimed, however, that he would not
consider jt his duty-to oppose Joseph
Martin or any Government that muy
be formed, but he did not desire to
exercise thnt judgment until -the voice
of the people throughout the Province
bad Iishjii heard nnd declared.
Mr. Thos. O'Brien addressed the meeting at coitKJderuble length and moved,
seconded by Mr. H". C. Killeen, that
W. C Wells be nominated to represent
this district, which motion whs car
Jr. Weils, replying, thanked tho
meeting fcr the favor conferred upon
him in their selection of a eandiduto.
He would use his beat judgment to
represent tne constituency as it should
be if elected.
A committee wai then appointed tu
carry ou the election iu Mr Wells' interest, which is OJinposed of Messrs.
Thos. O'Brien, Jam** Noble, A. Campbell. S. E. Humbly, Thos. Robson, W.
3. Robertson, J. O. Greene. E. A.

citked that some one in the audience

mines, stating his reason* for so doing. Mr. Aylmer wan accordingly

amidst applause.

for ihe very aids manner in which he
hud represented the district,  the meei
tug dispersed to meet again ���<' thevam*

pots cf nominating thoir Candidate at

He wKk In favor of a dyking and
Irrigating system for North East Kootenay. Ht believed in having tn agent
In London to represent BritUh Colum
bla, claiming tbtt it would be tbt
meant of bringing capital Into the coun
try. He spoke of an eight-hour law,
and claimed that the Conservatives
had never bun baokward In helping
the working man; and ssid thtt Mackintosh in Rosslsnd would poll tt many
votes as bia opponent. The miners in
Rossland are now working. The Eight-
hour lav should b'art suited the worker, and the mine owner, bat thit law
was forced upon both sett, Making
them matt, and tying up matters for
mouths, but now that matter* have
been smoothed over the men are working. Ha thought the principle wa*
all right, but laws should be made b.v
men who know their business, . He
also stated that Mr. Mackintosh had
takeu upon himself to guarantee the
return of aix straight Conservatives
from the Kootenayt, there Mould also
be two from Cassiar, twe from Carl
bco, and there was bul little donbt ;����
to North and East Tale returning
Fulton and Ellison, Ht claimed that
the Conservatives  were tore of al
these seats.
Mr. Armstrong also scored the Ute
government very strongly on the
Liquor Licence Aot, saying that they
could not have considered the rural
constituencies when passing the Act.
as the exi��nse and trouble of get'lng
the licence was too much.
The Chinese question also received
attention, saying that there was no
one more opposed to Chinese er oriental
Imraigratiou than he was. He had
travelled all over the province and had
seen the result of this Immigation In
all its stages. He would grant no cer-
litlcatvs to Chinese having the country
thus compelling Ihem to pay the $nC0
'each time they came to the couutry.
Ho also stnted that if the immigration
U w of Japan were endorsed there
would be fewer Japanese come to this
