were given away. If these lands had j
been held by the government they I
would have been sullieient interest on j
all money borrowed by the government, j
Mr. Martin's course lias always been
consistent. Our platform declares that
the eight-hour law will be enforced. \
Mr. Mackintosh has declared that Martin had had no other alternative than
to stand by the eight-hour law. But
Mayor Goodeve asserted herein Greenwood that Martin hesitated about it,
and only consented to endorse it when
Mackintosh stiffened him up, This was
absolutely untrue. We had the alternative, but we said the eight-hour law
would stand, and it was sustained. Mr,
Mackintosh, speaking for the eastern
papers, says the law exists, but. to apply it would cause great opposition.
Mr. Martin wanted a man to go to Ross;
Inniland examine carefully into tlie conditions o. the eight hour law question,
so I was chosen. The miners in this
riding are tlie most loyal men in tlie
country. Mr. Mackintosh contradicts
himself in interviews with the Toronto
Globe, and in talks with people iu Kossland.
"In the past there lias been great delay in issuing crown grants for mineral
claims. If we are returned, crown
grants shall be executed promptly.
There is no delay in their execution at
present. I have charge of that, and 1
see to it that a man can get. a crown
grant within 15 days after application.
"You don't realize what a tremendously important question our legislation with reference to Japs and Chinese
lias become. 25,000 .laps will arrive in
,,.n.lin the province this year. We have a
plank in our platform, with regard to
that question,   Our love for tlie empire j

people of the Boundary on the rapid increase of population  of which he  had

i we propose to build in Britisli Columbia would be built just as cheap as any
company could build it.    If you give Mr.
' Mackintosh a mandate to go to Victoria,
the big companies will get hold of the
contract   and   will   get  a  bonus  thiee
ttimes the cost of construction, and walk
off with the profit. Our government
will save you, lirst, the bonus, and al-
terwards the high freight and passenger
i rates.
"Mr. Koss has rel'ered to  Mr.   Martin
for tlie empire.    We are acting for self-
preservation,    There are f>l),il00  white I
laboringineii   iu  the province already,!
and with 25,000 Japs coming, the coun-|
try would be overrun and wages greatly
decreased.   We will take steps in such i
a way that tlie Dominion government
can't prevent    ns   Irom excluding the
Japs; and when they see that we   mean !
it all, they will give ns what  we   want.!
Mr. Mackintosh says that this is entire i
ly an  imperial question,  ami  takes   no j
stand  whatever,    Bui   when  he comes j
here he will no doubt lake some sort  of'
a stand along this line.

if a fair price is put on them. The province of Manitoba with double our population has only half our revenue. Ciov-
ernment roads have paid and paid well
in Australia and New Zealand. We will
not have tlie slightest trouble in getting
all the money we need to build railways
in B. C. Tbe only way to do tlie Conservative party a lasting good is to vote
for tlie Martin government now. In
two years, at the next election, they will
have a good platform. It is necessary
to have two good parties for first-class
government."
Amid loiul applause Mr. Curtis resinned his sent.
Mr. K. B. Kerr, of Phoenix, was then
called upon and said :
"With regard to Mr. Martin's personal character, I am glad to see the matter
thrashed out, as it lias been between
Mr. Koss and himself. It lias been said
that Mr. Martin is not an honest man.
Now, I want to see reforms brought
about, therefore, 1 want to see honest
men in the government. I have asked
many people what they could bring up
against Mr. Martin, and from all 1 have
received the same two incidents that
have been so thoroughly answered by
Mr. Martin this evening. I have never
found a man who has been able lo bring
forward a third charge against him."
Mr. Kerr then dealt with the two
charges against Mr. Martin, going over
much the same ground as the Premier,
and clearly showed that both charges
were utterly without foundation, He
declared that it was not right, that il
was very dirty work to bring forward
charges against a man when no proof
was forthcoming.
The giving of three rousing cheers for
the Premier and Mr. Custil closed the
largest political meeting ever held ill
the Boundary country.
" Consistency Thou Art a Jewel."
"Thu devotion oi toe Boers to their
govelninent and their instinctive desire
to live under a republic is well shown in
their intention to migrate from tlie
Transvaal in case their country becomes
a part of the British empire. International law is a long way from being perfect when it permits a powerful nation
to wage a war of extermination against
a small nation and to justify itself upon
a technicality,"
In the same issue tlie following appeared :
"Thu attack on a garrison of thirty
i Americans by several hundred insurgents ou the island of I'anay and the
killing of twenty of tbeiii shows that Ihe
[war Iii the Philippines is nol yot over,
it is some satisfaction to know that for
the twenty Americans killed more than
200   IllggerS   were    made   to     bite   tbe
: dust.' "���Seattle Times.
The Dayton Mine.
Harry .1. McQualde, one of the owners
I in the Dayton mine near Camp McKinney, visited the property this week and
, was highly si.ttslicd with the results
thus far attained. Beside the quarts
carrying free gold on the property there
is a ledge of heavy sulphide ore about
three feet in width, upon which develop-
! ment work is being done.    Several niiii-
. ing men have been keeping an eye on
tlie  property  which   is   looking   better
' with every foot of work done.
Opening of the Windsor.
The  new   Windsor Hotel   will  have a
grand  opening  to-morrow  night.    The
proprietors,    Madden   &   Dallas,   have

; from basement to top story.     Hot and
! cold water are plumbed all through  the
building, which is also wired for electric
| light throughout.   Sometime next week
I a social dance will be given in the hotel,

The Hon. Joseph Martin may congratulate himself upon his ability to put
more fear to the square inch Into the
conservative party than any liberal who'
has been in political life in the dominion
since its foundation; and behoving him'
to bo such big game tho leaders of the
different sections of that parly are
knifing each other so    thoy may get a
elm nee In bun hi in. Bill JllBOpIl is Witching the fun, and after they lime carved
eaeh other to a nicety, he will gather Up
the remains and stuff thorn Into his little politieal knapsack,    We trusl ho will
be magnanimous enough tn nurse  il 1
back to life, enough at any rate to lorni
some kind of a decent opposition 111 the
house.
A short time ago it looked as though
the premier was at a loss for newspaper
Bupport, and the opposition missed in
opportunities to keep him informed of,
the fact. Now, Mr. Martin has several j
papers at his back, and some sections of
the opposition are shy. The Wilson
party have purchased the New Westminster Columbian, and from the ap-1
peaninee of the Kossland Miner, Mr.
Mackintosh must have been able to raise
enough money In the east (doubtless
from theC. P R.) to obtain control of
its editorial pages. These are more tributes to Mr. Martin's ability and popularity in the province.
Hon. A. <l. Blair, minister of railways,
is making it place for himself in the
hearts of the people by opposing the C.

The passengers from Victoria the

was wailing for the train with his paramour when the injured wife appeared

children with her, and making a race
with the train to catch the runaway I
COUple before they could get on board.
She arrived at the station in time to
make a pretty light for her rights, but
was unable to prevent the pair from getting on tlie train. The eloping couple
arrived in Nunniino at noon, and were
very unroinanlic lookinu indeed. The
lady's traveling dress consisted a of \ery
much patched black alpaca skirt print
