The regular meeting of the liberal association was held in the City hall ou
Wednesday evening, a large number
being present. Duncan Ross, A. M.
Whiteside und G. R. Naden bad their
names stricken from the membership
roll. The meeting unanimously endorsed the candidature of the Hon.
Smith Curtis fur this riding in the coming provincial elections. J. H. McFar-
lune, C. J. McArtliur and VV. S. Keith
were elected delegates to attend the liberal district convention to be held at
Grand Forks on May 2nd.
Canada at Paris.
The extraordinary Influence which
Canada has acquired in Britain since
Sir Wilfred Laurier came to power is
Shown by the change in the status of
this country at the Paris exposition.
Originally even the name of Canada
was ignored in the olllciul catalogues,
aud she had no part assigned in the official demonstrations. Hon. J. Israel
Tarte, on his arrival in Paris, discovered
this, and at once communicated with | placarded at Campbell and elsewhere,
the imperial authorities. Mr. Cham- Laying that in the recent battles the
b.-rlain recognized trie injustice done to ; Boers captured 18,000 troops, 18 cannon

appeared in the vicinity and liretl heavily. The British, however, held them j
ill check until the column reached a i
point of safety, when they retired. The
British hail several casualities. The j
Boers fought determinedly anil must!
have suffered considerably, us they once \
advanced to within 800 yards of the hill, j
whence a concealed detachment  of  the,
British   opened a heavy   fusllade   on
them.
The war ollice has received the following dispatch from Lord Roberts,
tinted Bloemfontein, April 21: "Run-
dle's force came in contact with the enemy yesterday, four miles southwest of
Dewetsdorp. They occupied strong positions couering the town. The yoe-
inanry ami mounted Infantry seized
another position, which enabled Run-
die to drive the enemy off and occupy
the high ground they had been holding.

said has risen in the west.
Big Fire in Nelson.
On Tuesday the Burns block, a two-
story brick building with a white stone
front, was burned down. The cold
storage plant in the basement was
ruined. Loss of P. Burns & Co.
amounts to about $7,500; loss of Imperial bank, $400 ; loss of the Tribune association about $1000. Ali are covered
with insurance. The origin of the tire
is unknown.
Which Town Leads?
The Grand Forks Miner of April 21st
says that the assessment of that town
amounts to $983,005 ; that of Greenwood
beats that by (1200,000. The yearly
stamp sales of Grand Forks amount to
$6000 tjihat of Greenwood iB as follows
for the lirst week in April: Letters,
5,780; postal cards, 223; papers 210;
photos,   84; parcels, 25, the postage on
and warns all burghers to join under
penalty of punishment in accordance
with the martial law of the Free State.
The Globe's correspondent with the
lirst contingent cables from Bloemfen-
tein under tlate of April as follows:
''The Canadians moved this afternoon
to Springfield, six miles east of this
place. John A. Kwan has arrived
here." Kwan is thu Globe correspondent with the second Canadian contingent. His arrival at Bloemfontein indicates that the second contingent will
take part, in the movement toward Pretoria,   which  has probably commenced.
A special despatch from Maseru,
dated April 21, says: "The investment
of Wepener continues. The Boers seem
determined to do their utmost to capture the garrison before relief arrives.
Severe fighting appears imminent,"
R. W. Macfarlane Injured.
A report from Nelson says that R. W.

Mackintosh Meetings Turn Out to Be
Largely in Favor of Curtis���Greenwood Martinism a Surprise.
On Turstlay evening, 19th inst., a coterie of Mackintosh supporters arrived
in Greenwood and proceeded to Phoe
nix, where they addressed the electors
iu Miners' Union hall. VV. B, Cochrane took the chair. The first speaker
was Alexander Sharpe, who endeavored
to tell of some gootl that Mackintosh
Inn!, at some time, done for Canada,
and of the harm that Joe Martin would
do if he were elected. Mr. Sharpe
failed to take the meeting by storm.
Mr. R. B. Kerr was the next speaker,
antl in a vigorous address pointed out to
the satisfaction of the audience that the
Mackintosh platform was made of weak
scantling unevenly distributed, Mr.
Kerr was logical in his address and met.
with a hearty reception from the audience.
Mayor Goodeve of Rossland made the
last speech of the evening and received
good attention. His effortH to find a
reason for defeating Smith Curtis and
electing C. II. Mackintosh were well received but not heartily seconded by the
audience. Mr. Goodeve owned up that
he, personally, was not in favor of the
eight-hour law, but since it had been
passed he would stay by it. The speaker was in good form, and made a very
good speech���considering the subject.
The meeting closed with cheers for the
Queen and Mackintosh.
On Friday evening at (ireeuwooil the
same speakers, accompanied by Dr,
Bowes and I). B. Bogle, addressed a
crowded meeting in Miller's hall Acting Mayor Sutherland occupied the
chair. The addresses of Messrs. Sharpe
ami Goodeve were upon  the same  lines
as at Phoenix, both claiming that Martin was an incompetent and erratic legislator, and a menace to the province.
R. B. Kerr made the speech of the
evening. He scored Dr. Bowes, who
preceded him, again and again, much to
the delight of the audience
Mr. D. B. Bogle, who, it is claimed,
would not have refused the nomination
himself, made a short address, but the
audience did not appear to take him
seriously and be desisted from extended
arguments.
Mayor Goodeve lowered himself in the
estimation of bis hearers by claiming
that the Hon. Smith Curtis only offered
his services in the settlement of the labor trouble because his expenses were
paid anil he was fishing for votes.
The meeting closed with cheers for
Mr. Mackintosh and counter cheers for
Hon. Mr. Curtis.
Boer Army numbers 80,000.
The Lorenzo Martinez correspondent
of the London Times, under date of the
21st, says: "Information from responsible sources show that one time the republicans had 105,000 men in the field,
including the colonial rebels. According to the same information they can
still muster 80,000, of which 50,000 are
in the Free State, 10,000 in the Uiggars-
berg district, ami 15,000 iu the district,
of Fourteen Streams, it is now believed that before the war the burgher
lists were deliberately falsified in order
to deceive the Britisli intelligence department."
Offer of Bonus Declined.
The Slocan Ore Purchasing company
would not accept the bonus offered them
by the Greenwood City council  for  the
establishment of an ore sampler in  the
city.    The council's offer of 50 cents per
ton  for   the   first   10,000   tons   of   ore
crushed was very liberal; and  the ac-'
tion of the company proves conclusively
that they were out with  the "big mit"
for the cash, and had not the necessary
financial backing nor the inclination  to
carry on such  an enterprise.   The city i
quit ahead of the game.
Grand Ball.
The citizens' band, Greenwood, will
give a Queen's birthday ball on May
24th in Miller's hall. Early in the evening an open air concert will be given in
front of the hall. Everyone is cordially
invited to attend. Tickets, per couple,
| $1.50.
Cricket.
A large number of cricket enthusiasts
met in the Bank of Montreal rooms on
Saturday last and the following ollicers
elected: President, F. J. Finucane;
first vice president, Robt. Wood; second vice president, James Anderson;
secretary-treasurer, F. Lewin; executive committee, P. P. Sharpe, Ronald
Harris, C. Hodges and C. VV. Chesterton. Anyone wishing to become a member should communicate with the secretary. Mulches will be arranged with
teams from surrounding towns.
For Mafekine's Relief.
A despatch from London, April 24th,
says: "TheCape Town correspondent
of the Daily Mail says General Carring-
ton's force is the only one going to the
relief of Mafeking. and that no force of
any kind is pointing south. The Morning Post, commenting on the difficulty
Lord Roberts is experiencing, assert*
that there was great wisdom in arranging for a steady Mow of reinforcements.
Kelly Got Loose.
Ed Kelly, who was in the city lock-up
preparatory to a trip to Kamloops for
stealing tobacco from the C. P. R.
freight sheds, got out of his temporary
residence Tuesday night, and iB now,,
doubtless, in the land of the free. It ie
supposed that he was assisted from the
outside. The authorities are making
every effort to capture him.
Retail Clerks' Association.
On Monday night the retail clerks ol
of the city formed a union, with a mem
bershipof25. Tlie officers are: Pre��-
ident, D. A. McKenzie: vice president,
A. Fleishman; secretary, R. N L.
Brown; treasurer, M. Berger; guardian, F. H. McKenzie.

open air concerts on Tuesday evening,

streets. The band intends keeping uj.

heltl at Rossland on last   Saturday   was
largely attended,    .1.  McLaren,  president of the Trades  and   Labor Council,!
was iu the chair    T. M. Beamish in ad-!
dressing   the meeting thought Joe Mar-
tin w'aii a friend of the  people,  and  he
asked   who   brought    Mackintosh   out,
which brought forth cries of "the club." j
He said that at the Mackintosh mooting
he hail not seen a uorkingmnu.
Jnilies Devine said he knew that
Mackintosh was not the man for the
masses. He was afraid that Mackintosh j
might be elected if the laboring men put j
a candidate in the Held against Curtis.
He thought tne meeting would do well
to endorse Curtis ns their candidate.
Mr I lain, v said he would vote for Cur- i
tis if   he   was   the  choice  of  tbe  labor;
party, but he would not  support   Mackintosh under any consideration.
Mr. A. Dutton  opposed   the  selection
of a workingman, who   might   not   win.
Joe Martin was the  man.    He  had got !
them the eight-hour  law.    He  pressed'
the endorsement of the Hon. Smith Cur-.
tis.
Delegates were then selected to meet!
iu convention and choose a candidate.

A Trip to Phoenix.
A MlNKK man visited the thriving
town of Phoenix during the week antl
was surprised at' some of the facts
learned.
Up to Ihe present time nearly 1)0(111
feet of development work has been done
on the properties belonging to the
Miner-Graves company. Another com-
pressor plant will soon be installed on
the Knob Hill, and within !K1 days the
company will have over 300 men on
their combined properties.
Work is being pushed steadily upon
the Gold Drop. War Kagle, Snowshoe
and Hartford. The boiler at the (iolden Crown burned out a few days ago
and is being repaired. The mine will
start up again in about 10 days. Their
ore bins, containing S00 tons, are full.
Ai present Phoenix, like other Boundary towns, is a little quiet; hut by the
lirst of July the payroll will be the largest in its history up to that time, and
then Phoenix should boom.

Will Not Remain Inactive.
Al Wharnock, Mr. Kennedy of the
New Westminster Columbian made the
somewhat important statement that he
approved oi Mr. Martin's platform and
that the Columbian did not propose to
remain inactive during Ihe campaign.
While -Mr. Kennedy did not commit bis
paper to Mr. Martin, the statement j
goes a long way in that direction, and is
interesting in connection with the rumor that Mr. J. C. Brown will run in
Mr. Martin's interest. Mr. Kennedy
expressed the opinion that theconserva
lives would drive all liberals over to tbe
Martin ranks.���Colonist.

Tax improved property. It is a poor
principle for a city to follow. Instead
of taxing a man for the money he keeps

FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 1000,
British Columbia should have 11 mining school established within the province, and the proper place for its loen- ,
tion is in the Slocan, Kootenay or Boundary districts, Nearly every other milling province or state ill the worltl has
such an institution, aud British Columbia mining development has reached
that stage when a college of mines would
be highly beneficial, if it is not absolutely essential, Will any of the present political parties make this a plank
in their platform?
American papers claim to believe that !
the recent Influx of Jabanese is due to a
Rosso-Japan war being Imminent,   The
little Islanders have recently shown that
they are no cowards, and they  would
have every advantage iu such a conflict.
Japan has a navy afloat   that  places  it ]
among the leading naval  powers of  the
globe,   and   were   they   supported   by !
(Ireat Britain    would   give a good ac-j
count of  themselves.    They are  in  an '
excellent position to keep posted on  the
policy of Russia.
At the public meeting on last Friday
evening, Mr. Alex Sharpe expressed
great sympathy for the laborer. Was
be in earnest? What was his position
at Nanaimo two years ago when he occupied the position of shift boss iu the
coal mines? He surely can't be the
man that worked hard against the formation of a union? But perhaps it I
"pains" him to think of those days;
he may have changed his mind, as they
are only fools and dead men who tin not.
The court of revision has raised the
assessment on the property in the main
part of town, and lowered it on   that  in
Dick Mc.Bride, of Dewdney, in a speech
at llaney, when asked who the lieutenant-governor should have called upon to
forma cabinet, replied : "Either Mr. j
Turner, Mr. Helmcken, or myself."
Imagine Dick McBride premier! This
would be���
"A sight to make surrounding nations stare;
A kingdom trusted tn a school-boys care."
The fishing season is approaching and
sportsmen still have to go miles away to
ply the roil and reel. Greenwood
should again take up the question of,
having Boundary creek and Long lake
stocked with fish. It is a good question
for the board of trade to work upon.
Let the conservatives send  Mr.  Alex I
j Sharpe  through   the constituency and ;
i there will not be tho shadow of a doubt I
as to the  election  0'   the   Hon.   Smith

The streets of Greenwood are in
admirable condition ; for which both the
street committee and lire chief deserve
praise.
EDITORIAL CLIPPINGS,
Whatever may be thought or said of
Mr. Martin, his opponents, the way
they have managed things, can
command neither the confidence nor the
respect of tbe electorate. 1)1 the conservatives this is especially true, as they
have directly impugned their own sin-
eerily by their course, and have compelled a large body of the electorate to
choose between abetting Ihe sellish, unpatriotic and gratuitous party fight,
which they (the conservative party) are
pulling up, or supporting Mr. Martin,
With such 11 choice before them, ami
the ghoulish spectre of a lute dead and
buried Turuerism grinning grimly over
the conservative party's sheltering
shoulder, it is notluird to predict what
the decision of the great majority of the
electors uf tlie province must be.���Columbian

the Rossland riding. He met star
shooters Bowes, Goodeve and Tebo at

Tribune,
The Semlin government was a menace
to the province, not perhaps by its evil
designs, if it ever had any designs of
any kind, but by its lamentable weakness. No one knew heller than his
honor the danger to the province from
the existence of that moribund and
helpless government, and when he took
the ultimate step of dismissing it from |
Office he knew well the risks he ran;
like a man he accepted them, and is pre- i

Prosperous Canada.
During the last three years under a
Fielding tariff the people of Canada
have purchased If(17,000,000 worth of
goods iu excess of the amount purchased during the last three years of the
Foster tariff. The rate of duty exacted
on these imports is about 2.'1 per cent,
which no man can say is not a fair ami
: reasonable tariff, and the low rates of
duty on British imports compel other
countries in   selling us goods to come
i down in order lo meet the prices al
which British goods are put on the market. The effect of the preferential tariff,
therefore, is to decrease the cost   of  all
| goods imported into Canada, on such ar-
; tides as are made in  the uniled  ning-
| dom.���Free Press.

A Boston, Mass., dispatch of the 19th
says: The annual Marathon race of the

Hamilton runners were not content to

lion-hearted Brignnt, who won the ruce
last spring, could not bold on to the
fleet-footed Canadians and was forced to
quit before half the course had been
covered. Dick llrant, the Harvard
man, who was picked to show Ontario
runners the way, finished eight anil was
the worst done-up man in the race.

0, men of England, as again
Ye form your ranks in war's array
Be this your thought, "We are the men
Of Agincourt and Malplaquet."
W'hate'er your fathers did of old,
Their blood in you again shall do;
Frond of a birthright all unsold,
Ye shall create that right anew.
(), men of England, all alone
Ye stand, as once before ye stood,
WhenSpaio'siniperial power was thrown
Against your puny walls of wood.
Whate'er your centuries of toil
Have brought of liberty and rest
To otlier lands is now the foil
Their kings will thrust against your
breast.
The Tarter, with his countless horde,
Winds o'er his dreary snow-clad plain,
His right arm brandishing a sword,
His tongue commanding peace to reign.
The German lifts bis great mailed hands,
And calls upon his Rhenish god
To witness how for peace he stands,
While mighty armies load his soil.
The Gaul, with never-dying hate,
Stands watching while ye take your way
From Cairo's fever-keeping gate
To Delagoa's distant bay.
These be the men that prate of wrong's;
These be the lords that fain would dare
Tu blind you when they draw the thongs,
Which tie their peoples to despair.
But let their curseoVmillions yelp
Like hungry wolves behind the  back ;
I think the tawny lion's whelp
Will little heed the snarling pack.
"God and my right!" raise ye the cry;
Ye take no less, ye ask no more;
And men of England yet can oie.
As men of England died of yore.
"God and my right 1"���and let them heed
Full well the words;  whate'er befall,
See to it that the Dutchmen's breed
Shall learn their meaning once for all.
I), men of England, prove again,
While time shall last and strength endure,
Ye are the men who were tbe men
Of Malplaquet aiid Agincourt.

Tlie author of "Flowers from a Persian garden" gives many examples of
Oriental wit and humor, some of which
are extremely delicate ami pleasing.
Among them is a slory of a professional scribe to whom a man went, asking
that a letter might be written for him,
The scribe said that he had a pain in
bis foot.
"A pain in your foot?" echoed the
man. "I don't want to send you to any
place that you should make such an excuse "
"Very true," said the scribe, "but
whenever I write a letter for any one I
am always sent for to read it, because
no one else can make it out."
When a man becomes suddenly rich
it not unfrequeiltly follows that he becomes as suddenly oblivious of his old
friends. Thus a Persian having obtained a lucrative position at court, a
friend of his came shortly afterward to
congratulate him thereon.
The new courtier asked him : "Who
are you, and why do you come here?"
The other cooly replied I "Do you not
know me then?    I am \our  old  friend,
and am come to condole with you, having heard that you had lately  lost your
sight."

Once when General Butler was in
congress he arose in his place and gently insinuated that the member who was
occupying the floor was transgressing
the limit of debate. "Why, general,"
said tba member in  reproachful  tones,

NADEN BLOCK:
GREENWOOD    :
"you divided your time  with  me"    "1 |   Columbia
know I did," rejoined the grim old war-1
rior, "but I did not divide eternity with
you."
But perhaps Butler's most savage retort was made in a political, convention,
in which a distinguished Unitarian divine, I think it was James Freeman
Clarke, sat as a delegate. While the
subject of candidates was being tlis
cussed this clergyman announced that
if a certain nomination was made be
would bolt the convention.
"Very likely," Butler blurted out.
"You are good at bolting; iu your religion you bolt two-thirds of the Trinity."
Tbe convention broke into a roar of
laughter, iu which tbe clergyman
joined.

A lady entered a bank in Syracuse,
says the Herald of that city, and handed
a check to the inlying teller.
"Madam," said he gently, "you have
forgotten to indorse it."
"Indorse it?" she repeated, with a
little worried smile.
"Yes; you must write your name on
the back, to show that you will repay
the bank in case the issuer of the check
should fail to answer our call."
"Oh?" she said, accepting the pen.
When the teller looked at the check
again this is what he read:
"The bank has always  paid  up

During the civil war the law school at
Cambridge was presided over by Professors Parous, Parker and Washburn.
Tbey were divided in their political
views anil each did bis best to maintain
his opinion. Prof. Parker was one day
aSKed: "How do you get along on politics at the schuol?" "Nicely," he said,
"we are equally divided." "But how
can that he," continued the enquirer,
"sinfe there are three of you?" "Easy
enough," replietl the professor; "Parsons writes on one side ami I on the
other, and Washburn���he speaks on one
side and voles un tbe otlier."

George Q. Cannon, Ihe Utah states-
mail, once attended an irrigation congress, at which a drowsy delegate read
a paper on artesian wells, which he declared always brought water except
where they struck rock. He repeated
this statement several times. At the
fourth repetition he defied any one to
deny the proposition, whereupon Cannon looked up and in his full, musical
voice asked: "How do you account for
Moses success?"

The Irishman was painting his barn,
and he was hurrving Ida work with all
his strength and speed. "What are you
in such a hurry for, Murphy?" asked a
spectator. "Sure. I want, toget through
before me paint runs out," was the
reply.

What Curtis Says.
"With regard to the refusal of the
House at Ottawa to grant, a charter to
the Kettle, river valley railway, it is our
intention to see that the line is builtun-
der a provincial charter, if wc are returned to power. Very likely we would
build it as a provincial mail. 1 have already got the Grand Forks people, who
are deeply interested in this matter, to
make an application under the tramway
act, which will allow them to run within haU a mile of the international bonn-
diitr^and, after lit) days' advertisement
in the Official Gazette, we can, byorder-
in-connc.il, give them the privilege of
building a tramway, which may, of
course, be a standard gauge railway. 1
have also suggested to them that they
acquire the title to the land covering the
intervening half mile, and. it they do so.
im one can prevent them laying rails oil
their own laud and running oars over it
right up to the international boundary
line, ami if some American railway com-1
puny chooses to build its line up to tbe
same point on the international boundary line, I don't see how any Canadian
������an object to its doing so. After that it
is only ii matter of customs regulations
to enable the cars to pass freely to and
fro across th" boundary line, and I venture to think that the government on
either sitle of the line will not dare lo
refuse the privilege to Carson or Cascade,
when they allow it at so many other
points on the Canadian frontier. This
whole question was fought out years ago
by Mr. Martin in Manitoba, and all that
we are contending fol now was then conceded and put in actual practice.
It. is vital to the progress of the Boundary country that it have competition if
its immense low grade copper ore bodies
are to be profitably exploited. Connection with Republic and the adjacent
camps will also give the smelters at
(Irand Forks and (ireenwood large shipments of ore and corresponding protits.
The government, while wishing no ill to
the C. P. K., is not going to allow that
railway a monopoly that in tlie end
would work as great a harm to the. company as it Would to the country."���From

HENRY SAUVE'S STORE, COPPER STREET. THE   GREENWOOD   MINER,
Friday, Ap��il 27, 1900
Extract from Martin's Speech at Haaey.
His proposition was to borrow $1,000,-
000 for roads, provided he could see
where revenue could be raised to pay
the interest and sinking fund. There
would be no trouble borrowing the
money if the financiers could be satisfied
that the interest and sinking fund would
be on hand on time. He intended to
(mild the roads on a different principle
than the old one of grab who can. The
roads of the province had cost twice as
much as they should have done, because
the money had been doled out here and
there, ahd a little bit of work done here
and a little there to fix some doubtful
voter. .He intended to have tlie money
on hand-and make good scientific roads
and permanent bridges, from the first.
(Loud applause).    Some time ago he had
was a wilderness. A railway has peopled that wilderness, and the people
have created something. What has
been done in the southern portion of
the province can be done in the northern portion, for the northern portion ie
less a wilderness to-day than the southern portion was fifteen years ago. The
Canadian Pacific Railway was built
largely hy money advanced by the government, but it is owned to-day by the
company's shareholders, the government
having no proprietory interest in it. No
better opportunity can he had than has
the province of British. Columbia to-day
to make a beginning in government
ownership of,railways. Immense undeveloped stretches of country, known to
be rich in natural resources, without
any roads of any .kind, extend from the
Pacific Ocean eastward  to  the   western

needed through Dewdney, ami was prepared to say that it would he built on
the plan he suggested if he were returned to power. (Applause). They would
have to pay for it. They must not forget that. He would try to put as much
of the extra taxes on the rich antl the
big corporations, but the general public
will get a share of the added rates. They
might have heard that before, as he hail
told the people of Chilliwack when he
spoke of the railroad, but he had the reputation doring the last eighteen years
of keeping his public promises. He had
his limits, hut that was not one of Ihem.
Some of his colleagues hail called him
impracticable because he insisted on
having ante-election promises carried
out. to the letter, and if bis colleagues
did not fall in line alter the coming election, they would have to get someone
else for Premier.
What John Houston Says.
"To make the province of Hritish Columbia prosperous,  something must  be
created  within  the  province.     Fifteen
years ago, all southern British Columbia
branch roads, Such a road would he to
the North what the Canadian Pacific is
now to the South. Each would have its
own territory, and there con Iil be no
conflict or competition. The building
of such a road by the province won hi attract more attention ami capital to
Britisli Columbia than a thousand Karl's
Court Exhibits, and what is of far greater importance, it would develope resources that would sustain a large permanent population, without which the province can have no lasting prosperity."
Anything to Beat Martin.
At the conservative mass meeting
held iu Chilliwack on Saturday last,
in'speaking of party Hues, Sir Hibbert
Tupper said: "My former remarks
have been misconstrued | I always have
been in favor of straight party lines,
but thought in tiny constituency where
the liberal party predominated so as to
insure the election uf II liberal candidate
over a conservative candidate, that the
liberal should not be opposed iu order
that there might be no question about
the defeat of a Martin candidate."

INDEMNITY QUESTION.
Mints and Railways Will Pay It in Sooth
(Africa,
A dispatch to the New York Tribute
from I,mihImii, under date of April Kith,
s lys i While there is a complete shrinkage of war news, there is much qu'el discussion among South Africans in London respecting the future of the mining
Industries after the dose ol hostilities.
Mr. Rhodes has been conferring with;
Alfred Belt Hlld other large capitalists,
hut hi.- views are not known. Mine!
owners arc reticent from a gootl cause,
lor tbey know from the speeches of the
chancellor of the exchequer and the
tone of the press that there is a deliber
ate intention of bleeding the capitalists
so far as possible in set tiling the bill
of expenses fur the war There are only
two interests iu the Dutch republics
which can he levied upon when the indemnities are assessed tor the costof the
war and for damages to property in
Natal anil Cape Colony: these are the
railways and mines. The railway in
the Free State is owned by the govern-
meiii^'iiicli, as General Roberts has de-
clar^R no longer exists. A portion of it
with the rolling stock has been seized
by the Hritish army, and as General
Roberts advances to the Vaal the remainder of it will fall into his possession. This state railway, with its potent
earnings anil resources, nuiv he regarded
as a valuable asset in possession of the
British government, When the Transvaal is invaded, the railways belonging
to the Netherlands company, will also
be sei/..iil, and these in times of peace
were compelled  to pay Ho  per cent of
their profits  to  the Transvaal govern-
i inent.    South Africans assert that   this
SO per cent will go hereafter to the Hritish government,
The main resources for meeting a war
indemnity will be the mines. Well informed South Africans state that the
annual exporters of the Transvaal government in recent years have been
about $22,500,000, and under British ad-
ministratkn at least $7,500,000 can be
saved. This margin will allow the payment of interest on an indemnity loan
of $200,000,000, but tlie total costof tlie
war cannot be less than $500,000,000
Without these mines and railways there
would be i.o possible resource for meeting an indemnity.

LOCALS AND PERSONALS.
Notwithstanding Mayor Goodeve's remarks at a certain political pow-wow
that "prominent and reliable engineers"
had told him it woultl be utterly impossible to build a through line between
the Boundary district and the coast, it
is apparent tnat the C P. R. engineers
think otherwise. The question is: Is
the shortest, most economical and most
feasible route through tlieKtinilkameen?
This section is going to have railroad facilities in the near future, and when
there is tonnage to he obtained politics
do not count.���Greenwood Times.

The men who are doing the ward
Heeling for Candidate Mackintosh in
Rossland riding were liberals two years
ago. Sudden conversions are to he distrusted, and candidates whose chief support comes from men whose principles
are for sale to the highest bidder for
spot cash are not above suspicion.���Nelson Tribune.

I, Bobt, Jacobs, proprietor of the
