the only issue at stake was the action of
the lieutenant governor in choosing Mr.
Martin as leader of the government,
lie and his colleagues all seemed to
agree that the choice of Marlii. was a
bad one. Each prominent critic seemed
to think that the governor should have
called ou himself. Each thought himself the only one capable "f running the
government. Mr. Martin also thought
that he himself was thu proper individual, anil he differed from all the
others in one Important respect���the
lieutenant governor agreed with him.
A great objection to Mr. Martin
seemed to come from the liberals of the

A Filipino fable: A hoy who had a
briudle dog on a string was so tired that
the dog was on the point of achieving independence, when a member of the society for the prevention of cruelty to animals accosted the boy and chilled him
for not giving the dog his freedom, and
finally bought the string for twenty-five
uents. The last the hoy saw of I In-
kind hearted stranger he was kicking
the stuliiiug out of the dog because it
hung back when he pulled on the
string.���Judge Charles G. Garrison of
New Jersey.
.Judge Martin Grover, of Troy, N. V.,
was at one time appruiicli.nl by a young
citi/.en who wished to he nominated to
the state assembly. The shrewd old
judge had'certain doubts about him,
which he expressed somewhat freely,
and yet he was willing to afford him a
trial, He therefore addressed the aspirant in this way: "Young man, if
you will give me your word that you
will not steal when you get to Albany,
I'll see what can be done about seiidin'
you there.'' "Judge Grover," replied
the young man, drawing himsell up
with great dignity, "l go to Albany unpledged, or 1 don't go at all."
A boy of thirteen sends a story of a German who, being pursued by a policeman,
ran into the store ol a friend, who was a
crockery merchant, and hid himself in
a bag. The policeman coming iu after
him knocked on all the hags and baskets to Iind out where he was. When
lie came to the bag where the German
was hid he knocked, and nol hearing
the rattle of china, said: "Tne Herman must be in here, for if it  was china
It would go'tinkle, tinkle. Dingle,
dingle," said ihe Gen.inn inside." The
hoy neglects to state whether or not the
policeman was deceived.
A young couple were entertaining
their friends, und among the guests was
one   whose    continued    rudeness   made
him extremely objectionable to ihe
rest of the company.   His conduct  was
put up with for some time, until at supper he held up on his fork a piece oi
meat which had been served lo him,
and in a vein of intended humor, he
looked round and remarked: 'Is this
pig?" This immediately drew forth the
remark from a quiet looking individual
sitting at the end oi I l.e table:" Which
end of the fork do you refer to?"
A new military prison chaplain was
recently appointed ID a certain town in
Scotland, and entering one of the cells
on his lirst round of Inspection, he,
with much pomposity, thus addressed
the prisonjr who occupied it: "Well,
sir, do you know who I nn?" "No, nor
I ilinnu care," wa-1 e m clialant reply.
"Well, I am your new chaplain." "Oh

evening was a decided success. Mr.
Martin's opponents have only heen able
to hunt up two charges against him in

the audience. This is a record of which
any man might he proud, and tlie electors will express their satisfaction in

Tl KSI1AY, MAY 8. 1900,
So far as outward appearances go the
visit of tlie Hon, Joseph Martin to the
interior has already given strong indications of a change in political sentiment.
In nearly every place where he has addressed an audience he has commanded
an excellent hearing, nnd scores that
came to scoff remained to bo convinced
of the faith and honesty of Mr, Martin
and his government. No one can deny
that his platform is the best offered by
any of the live combinations, and that il
should have the solid support of the
electors ; and we believe thai Ihe electors
will see its fairness toull classes and give
ii hearty support. They should remember that the building of the "Coast to
Midway" railway will circulate an
enormous amount of money among the
working classes, and the laborers will
require the produce of the ranches and
market gardens en route. The connection with a Kettle River Valley road,
which will also have connection with
the Northern Pacific or so#ie other
American line, will give competitive
freight rates into the Boundary country
from the east and from the west. The
re-enactment of Chinese and Japanese
exclusion bills will, as Mr. Martin says,
force the dominion government to allow
the province to use its own judgment an
to excluding or admitting Mongolian laborers j and Mr. Martin and Mr. Cur-
t!s pledge themselves to prohibit tbe
immigration if returned to power
Many other reasons may be given for returning the Martin government to power, and we believe, as we said before,
that the electors will recognize the jus-
tice "f ihe government platform and
give it their honest support.
Is Greenwood going to give any ns-
; sistance to the Sandon sufferers? We
! hope that the dollars  it  contains  will
burn holes in the city treasury boxes
i until the city council or the mayor starts
a subscription for those that are home-
��� less and  penniless.
t *
Mackintosh's policy���Grant   bonuses
t to monopolies for railroad construction.
| Martin's  policy���Use the bonus money
] to build railroads which   will   be owned
by the province.   Which is preferable?
The result of the revision of tlie voters' list lias shown Grand Forks to have
L'lll less names on that list than Greenwood. Will the Gazette kindly lend us

There nre differences nf opinion as to
the practicability of certain planks in
the platform of the premier, ami as to
the qualifications of tlie Hon, Joseph

one belief respecting the litness of any
part of the Turner party to regain power in Hritish Columbia.���Columbian,

As election day draws near, it becomes
more and more apparent that this contest will prove u veritble Armageddon
between the cause of the people and the
heterogenous hosts of privilege and monopoly, with the Martin government,
properly strengthened and ballasted,
standing for the former, and the Turner-
Conservative-Cotton combination for the
latter. It behooves the people to be
armed at all points against this supreme
assault upon their liberties hy the same

On Friday creek Messrs. Silverthorne |

Muliloon claim. The ledge is showing

increasing in value as depth is obtained'
The Lost Horse mine is showing up;
new development which is very proniis-
lllg, About '-'HO feet from the shaft the
men are busy stripping an outcrop
which is very rich in carbonates and oxidized copper. Secretary W. A. Camp-
hell is at the mine personally superintending the work and is very enthusiastic over the new strike.
The Copper Cliff is jnslifvingits name.
Situated ou Copper mountain 2000 feet
below the Sunset close to the Si 111 ilka

by Messrs. Aldons, Van Mills and Jackson, who own the property, has uncovered a line body of chalcopyrite, which,
judging from samples left a the Star ollice, ought to assay well.

later developments nre proving the ore
botlics to he richer and stronger as depth j
is  attained.     Messrs    Burr  und  Jones
have completed the assessment work on i
the Lelu and adjoining claims.   A shaft
11)  feet  deep  on  the    Lelu   is  in   good
mineral, and witli  ii  little  more depth
Indications show that a good ore body ;
will be fount'.
The latest development of the Sunset,
although disappointing from the fact
that owing to breaking through a slip;
the shaft made water so fast that a temporary closedown was necessary until a
new pump is installed, is most encouraging. The liiBt blast, at a depth of 11)1)
feet broke into tne richest body of ore
yet discovered in the mine. The bottom
of the shaft is literally covered with
copper, native, sulphide and bomite, all
being scattered thickly through the
rock, milking it a perfect kaleidoscope
of color. Supt. Loiigheed left immediately for Grand Porks to procure a
large pump and expects to start work
again in about ten days J. D. Anderson, P, L. S., is busy surveying the

Tuesday. May 8. 1900
Continued from page thriM
iscs. After its defeat Mr. Martin first
went to the conservatives and Mr.
.lanws Dunsniuir for help. After he
had been turned down by them and bad
tried everything else in vain, be came
out as the champion of the liberal ami
labor parties Now be mis many worshippers. At Viuir lie told the electors
that, he would rather have John Roderick Robertson elected than Mr. Huns
ton, the old-time friend of labor us an
independent. Mr. Martin anil Mr.
Smith Curtis are believers in the government ownership of railways as is
shown by the very interesting literature
sent us by Mr. Curtis. With reference
to Mr. Martin's railway in Manitoba,
Mr. Smith Curtis told us that Martin
built a railway from Winnipeg to the
international boundary line. What was
its record? In order to make right a
had position it bad to be turned over to
the Northern Pacific. We are in exactly tbe same position in ���Hritish Columbia, lie would think nothing of
plunging the province into debt by building a railway and then turning it over
to some one ele to run."
Mr. Curtis interrupted al this point
and said .Mr. Ross' statement was an
