Victoria Elects the Government
Candidate by 55 Majority.
Aft.r on* o[ ilia raosi bitterly con-
tailed e*mpnigm ever held in Viotoria,
Col, S. G. Prior, Miniate- ol Mine* in
Mr. Dunsinuii's cabinet, waa, on Monday, elected by * majority ol 65, over
his opi.oneut, Mr. E. V, Bodwell, th*
figure* being Prior, 1,139; Bodwell,
Both the Government and the Opposition threw all thair available lorces
into thi* light, as it waa generally
conceded that tbe loss of this aeat
mul*! spell defeat for tho Government.
In addition to thia Mr, Bodwell was
looking for revenge lor the refusal of
Mr. Dunimuir to conaent to the V., V.
k E. railway contract submitted by
tbe Great Northern through Mr. Bodwell last -session.
The taetics adopted by the Opposition iu the publio meetings held during
the campaign, were, if Viotoria papers
report the occurrences correctly, such
as would appeal only to ihe rougher
element, and culminated in tha use of
forco to obtain entrance to tb* opera
liouss on th* occasion of the final meeting on Saturday evening, which led, as
wn* to bs expected, to several fights
between Opposing pirtitai.a.
The -Government had a atrong candidate i* Col. Prior, and th* benefits to
Victoria ol the |*roposed Canadian
Northern were used to the fullest po*
sihle effect by him in the campaign.
We hope thet with this eieotion
over lhe House will settle down to
business and pass a fair "Redistribution
measure, so that if an election is held
this summer, es seems probable, justice
will be done to this mainland in the
matter of representation.

London, March 10. -Oen. Methuen
and four gun* havo been captured by
G**��r*l Delarey.
The text o! Lord Ki'chener'* message
announcing tha c��|,ture of General Methuen I* a* follow*:
**' P*torii, Maroh 8-1 greatly regret
to hav* to **nd you bad new* ol Methuen. He w** moving with 900 mtn,
ander Major Pari*, and 300 infantry
with four guns and a pom from Wyn-
burg to Lich.enburg, and was to meat
Greufel with 1,800 mourned man at
Roviraineifonteiu today. Yesterdsy
morning early ha waa attacked by Delarey'* foroe between Twebosch and
Pulmietnill. Th* Boer's charged on
iheir aide. Five hundred and fifty men
hav* com* in at Maribog* and Kraai-
pan. They ware pursued by "Boers
four miles from the icene of aotion,
They report that Methuen and Pari*
with tlie gun*, baggage, etc., were
captured by the Boer*. Methuen,
when last aeen, wa* a prisoner. 1
have no details of the casualties and
suggest delayiug publication till I can
send definite news, t think thia sudden revival of activity ou the part of
Delarey is to draw off the trooju pursuing De Wet."
Tn a second despatch dated -Sunday.
March 9, Lord Kitchener says; '-Paris
has com* In at Kraaipan witli the remainder of the man. He report* that
tha column waa moving in two partis*.
Ont, with tbe ox wagon* left Tw*bo*ch
at 3 a.m., tb* other with the mules

dawn tbe Boar* attacked. Before re
inforcemenl* reached them the rear

number* of Boer* gallopel up on both

the flank parties, imt th* panic and
���tamped* of the tnults had begun aad
all the mule wagons, with a terrible
mixturo ot mounted man, rushed pati
the ox wagons, and all effort* check
them war* unavailing, Major Pari*
collected forty men and occupied a
position a mile in front of lhe ox
wagon*, which were then balled.
After a gallant but useless defence the
enemy rushed into tb* ox wagon*, and
Methuen wa* wounded In tha thigh.
Paris surrendered at 10 a.m. Methuen
is still in tl.e Bosr camp."
Tben followtd a number of the casualties. Th* killed include Lieut. G. R.
Venning and T. P. Ntuham, of th*
Royal Artillery, who were both killed
while serving the-guns wilh case shot
A* Lord Kitchener announced that
Major Pari* had autrendered and alee
telegraphed that be had reached Kraaipan will, the remainder of the men, it
wonld seem that the Boer* subsequent
ly released the Major and his company.
Oen. Methuen was wonnded in the
thigh. Three British officers ami 75
men were wounded. On* Britiab
officer and 200 men ere mining. Th*
tight occurred before .ta/vn on March 7
betwetn Wynbcrg and Lichtenburg,
Orange Bivar Colony. The British
tore* numbered 1200 men. The Deere
captured all the Britiab baggage.
London. Mar. 12- Th* Daily Chronicle understands that Lord Kitchener
will be relieved ot much administration work in South Africa to enable him
to take tb* field in person and lead u
large mounted force in an endeavor to
capture De Wet. The Chronicle is also
informed that when he is released Gen.
Methuen will not assume any further
military command in South Africa. A
casualty list (hows that four officers
were killed and ten wounded, including Gen. Methuen dangerously. He is
doing well.

FRIDAY. Mauch 14, 1902.
Look I su al lhe contract between th*
promoters of lhe l.uua.lian Non hern
Knilway and '.ho Provincial Govern
ment in the light of past history in
ihis province, ths agreement is, lusome
rcs|ii*cis, an improvement, nn.l more in
lhe interests of lhe people. Gut look
lug at it from i li.i standpoint of a busi
ne*8 proposition between the people of
11. C. anl the railway company ihere
is more room for (Utterance of opinion.
It will be generally conceded lhat li
railway through northern British Col
ninbia is a good thing and much ile
sired; also that any private corporation undertaking tha work would be
entitled t* substantial assistance (rom
the Government. Thos* points being
settled, it only remain* to deride the
exact amount of aid lo b* given and
the character it will aasume.
Descending from generalities to particulars, we thing lha land grant to
il.o C.N. R. 1* excessive aud mtch
U'jond what the people are willing
io give voluntarily. If this mattir
wus referred baok to the people 'wt
honestly believe ihey would reject ii
un account ot the land clause.  '
I'hcre aie other phase* of the agree
mtnt from which we differ. Th*
cl .use *>en pting the com pan v's land
from taxation, a* long aa it is in their
possession, is a bitter pill for the taxpayer to swallow. Thi* i* an unjust
slaiise nnd should be stricken out,
Government control of rates is con
spicuou* by its absence, no mention
Icing made anywhere in tha agreement that tl.e Government jrill pro
t.ct lho |coiil" from exorbitant freight
nml pussenijrr rates.
It is well that thia agreement haa lo
Ik* ratified by tha Legislature before
coming into force, and we {hope the
(lowrnment will accept such amend
Hients a* will make the proposition
more palntihle to tl.e eleotor*.
We confess to a feeling of agreeable
surprise that ihere are 8,000,000
ncre* of land latt lo give away. We
islo vuch an extremely generou* people
thut hitherto we bar* placed little
restriction on those in power as to
what ihey will do with our heritage.
But communities, like Individuals,
ure taught hy experience, and the ex
jurieiice ot the pint is foste.ingasentl-
inct in favor of keeping our land for
m-.iuiil settler* and not allow it 16 pais
into th* hands of corporations for
s|iei.iiliitive purposes. Thi* sentiment
is right and ought lo lw encouraged.
We ought to be just a* well n* generous.

We have c-stiiistsntly maintained an
independent position as between tbe
Ooverninent nnd Opposition, and certainly shall not deviate trom lhat attitude in regard to thi* matter. But at
the s-ttue time we ara compelled lo admit we ..re convince I thut the ratilica*
tion by the Logiiliitur* tf an agreement on tl.e biisis of the term* set. out
in the draft ngretinent would b* a most
disastrous tiling for provincial interests. We ar* quite certain that th*
opini.ni of the electorate would b* *u
Itrougly against luch a vour** i hat any
party appealing lo tlie coustitnoncie*
on thut ground would meet with overwhelming defeat at the polls. On th*
whole the draft agreement is the most
reckless, the least regardful ot pnblio
interests of any proposal ot a *itailar
character that has been submitted to
the Legislature duriug the past twin.y
years. Compared with ihia prennt

then tl.e happy idea had never struck

that their attorney should also act a*

croiscr of tho ncrrh Atlantic squadron
was making virile to tho siiii.il ports along
tbe ouuHt of Central America, tho first one
touched  at  being  Truxlllo,   Honduras.
There is an old fsirt on the seaward s-.tle '
of tlio town manned by 60 or 0*0 ragged ,
and barefooted soldiers, under the com-.
maud of a colonel of tbe army ot Hon - j
duras.   This oTflcer, as tho commandant
of the military forces, Is tbo roost Important person In the town.   Soon aftor the
arrival of tho cruiser and whon national
salutes had boon exohauged between ship
and fort, tbe colonel and his staff enmo off
to tho ship to visit Iho captain, whore every attention wu shown him.
Tho qtiartcrniMtor of tho watch, ltoep-
Ing asliarp lookout for uverythlng through
bis Ioiik glass, noticed that tho Hog-stall
on tho fort presented an unusual appearance, having two flogs hoisted. Uo reported tho circumstance to tbo oilier o,1
tbo deck, who after looking earnestly nt*
tbe fort Bought tho oxcoutlve cftlcor. The
executive took tbo glnss, gave one good
look snd went tn haste to tho captain,
The United States Hast could be plainly

With the flag of Honduras waving proudly
over It.
Hero was an Insult to the flag that the
young midshipman wanted to wipe out Ir.
blood, or at least have target practice on
their tumble down old fort, but the.cap*:
tain had Ideas of hll own and uked an explanation. Tbo colonel was much surprised when tuld that wo could not allow
any foreign nation to hoist Its ling over
pur* and protested tbat ho had ordered tbo
display as a compliment, with no thought
that it would be taken otherwise. When
convinced that the captain could not eon
It In thnt light, be wroto an order to bis
second In command, which Was takon tu
tbe fort by one of tbe ship's officers, whose
:appcaranoe there and tbe ordor caused
great hurry and excitement. The troopi
wore turned out, drawn up facing the
. flagstaff and brought to a preaent, while,
-with tho ploying of tho bugles, the tn-c
: flags came down and ours went up again
alone. There It remained for half an hour,
flouting over a foreign fort to show what
a Hoaduran colonel could do In tho way of
reparation. After tho flog was hauled
down thu colonel and Ills staff went back

Head Offlce, Kamloops, B.C., will be in Golden for a few
days and will make regular visits every three months
hereafter. People with defective eyesight should not
miss this opportunity of having their eyes scientifically
examined and glasses fitted.
Many Ailments are Due to Defective Eye-Sight
And many people suffer through life with headache and
nervousness when relief can, in nearly all cases,,be received by wearing a properly fitted pair of glasses.
When the Eyes Feel Tired Through Overwork
A pair of jsrlasses properly fitted will give instant relief.
In correcting chronic eye trouble, I feel well able to give
the very best pf satisfaction in my work, and when no
aid can be had in restoring lost vision, I will truthfully
say so. All work guaranteed. Consultation free.
