GENERAL NEWS ITEMS.
Victoria, B. C, May 17.���With the
return to-day of the sealing schooners
Viva, Sillah May, Otto and Vera, complete reports of coast hunting are secured, the total catch for 34 schooners
being 15,896 skiiiN, or an average of 470.
Last year's total was 10470 skins with
but 111 vessels engaged. There have
been no serious mishaps this season and
owners are so confident of good prices
that all will ship to England.
London, May 15.���The alarmist tone
of Lord Salisbury's Primrose speech on
Wednesday haB been much discussed in
the lobbies of Parliament, and the Impression is that the apprehensions of the
Premier are even more serious than he
expressed. His utterances are ascribed
to the recent success of the Nationalists
in France, hatred of England being one
of the weapon's of the campaign. The
revival of Military glory, one of the
ideals set up in France, is regarded as
dangerous to England.
OrrAWA, May 15.���The Liberal members of the House of Commons and the
Liberal senators gave a banquet this
evening to Sir Richard Cartright in the
Senate restaurant. Mr. Wm. Gibson,
chief Liberal whip, presided, and Mr,
Frank Frost, M. P., and Mr. W. C.
Edwards, M. P., occupied the vice-
chairs. Every seat was filled. Letters
of regret ot not being able to be present
Van-   were, flfflrf, from flflrntlMfli'' Mill- 5ml. tllfijji.ectk>u,flf his force.
���Gan-' Mr. N. A.   Belcourt.    Mr.   Mills, in his      Some   of tho  Inniskilli
letter, said that in doing honor to Sir
Richard, the Liberals were honoring
themselves. As minister of trade and
commerce he always adhered strictly to
Liberal principals.

A long procession of carriages headed
by the city band marched through the
city from the station to the committee
rooms, where the Premier delivered a
short address, stat ing that not be but the
opposition were feeling tired. Many
candidates from other constituencies
participated in the reception and will

McDonnell and others. Great enthu-
siam is being manifested. Tonight's
meeting will be a record breaker.

Expensive Entertainment.
London, May 15.���The dramatic and
musical matinee at Drury Lime theatre
today in aid of the Princess Christian
homes of rest for disabled soldiers was
a brilliant function. The performance
begun at noon, continued until II
o'clock and included sketches by the
best known theatrical personages, singers and musicians, The Queen, the
Prince of Wales, and all the highest
members of tbe aristocracy were patrons
of the entertainment, and the Princtss
of Wales and otlier members of the
royal family were present. Every seat
was sold, the prices reaching as high as
100 guineas, and one guinea was (laid
for standing room.
Central Camp Road.
Managing Superintendent Martin of
the City of Paris mine, was in town this
week and said that he would like to see
the road from the No. 7 mine completed to the City of Paris. He places
the cost at (750, and says he will agree
to build it himself for that sum. This
road, if completed, would bring the City
of Paris two miles nearer Greenwood
than Grand Forks.
The citizens of Greenwood should
take up this question at once if they
want a share of the trade at Central
camp.

To Explode Transvaal Mines
Capetown, May 10.���The Cape Argus
publishes a report from Johanneslierg
said to have been suppressed in the
cross-examination of Acting Minister
Engineer Munnick, that in the recent
mysterious Dempsey case Munnick testified that preparations had been made
to explode 25 mines and that in the authority of State Secretary Reitz, he
(Munnick) had already bored shafts in
eight.
A Candid Editor.
The editor of this paper lias to announce that he is about to branch out.
While not abandoning IamIuc altogether,
be thinks it would be wise to move or
transfer his base of operations to
Strathcona, as there are more people in
that city, more advertisers, more to
write about, and what we value still
more, a greater degree of piety and a
deeper religious spirit than obtains in
Leduc. This, altogether, with the close
proximity to Ochsner's brewery, should
make Strathcona a pleasant place to sojourn during the hot months.���Alberta

PICKED   SPECIMENS.
A gentleman calling at the hotel left
his umbrella iu the stand in the hall
with the following inscription attached
to it: "This umbrella belongs to a
man who can deal a blow of 250 pounds
weight. 1 shall he back in ten minutes." On returning to seek his property he found in its place a card thus inscribed: "This card has been left by a
man who can run twelve miles an hour.
I shall not come back."
During the progress of the Tltellus-
son will case, which benefitted several
generations of lawyers, one of the counsel employed suggested that something
should stand over "till the day of judgment." Said Richard Bethell, who
also appeared in the case, he was also
subsequently Lord Chancellor West-
bury: " Will not that be a very busy
day?"
Here is a story that the late Archbishop Walsh of Toronto used to tell on
himself. On oi.e occasion bis grace
was being driven to the railway station
at Barrie by Rev. Dean Egan, who is
famous for his wit. They were driving
at a har.dsonie clip and the dean observed with just pride: "There's a fine
hit of horseflesh, your grace!" The
archbishop ventured the opinion that a
priest should guard against a tendency
to take too much pride and interest in
horsis. Alter driving a couple of
blocks they met two young ladies to
whom the dean raised his hat, and as
I hey drove on, the archbishop remarked: "Two very comely young
women," he said, "and lady-like, too."
" Everyone to his taste," replied the
dean solemnly, "mine's horses." It is
said that no visitor ever got away from
Barrie with the joke on Dean Egan.
An irishman who was out of work
went on board a vessel that was in the
harbor and asked the captain if he could
find work on the ship.
���' Well," said the captain, at the same
time handing the Irishman a piece of
rope, "if you can Iind three ends to that
rope you shall have some work."
The Irishman got hold of the rope,
antl, showing it to the captain, said:
" That's one end, your honor." Then
he took hold of the other end, and,
showing it to the captain as before,
said: "And that's two ends, your
honor." Then, taking hold of both
ends of the rope he threw it overboard,
saying, " And faith, there's another end
to it, your honor." He was immediately engaged.���London King.
James Purdon was a master joiner
and strongly objected to his men smoking in working hours. He had a very
keen scent, as his men all knew, und on
one occasion he entered a room iu which
one of his workmen was employed who
a short time before hud  been  smoking.
"Hello, my man," he said. "Vou
have been smoking here. 1 fin' the
smell o' tobasco reek I"
" I doot you're wrung," answered the
man.
" I'm sure I'm no wrang," answered
Jamie. " I could fin' the Bmell o' tobacco reek in a room a week after any
ime had been smoking in it."
"Weel," said the man, "I believe
noo that, you mention it, I did see a
plumber chappie smoking in here aboot
a week sin'."
Jamie went out suddenly.

THE STRATHCONA HORSE.
An Entertaining Letter Received From South
Africa.
The following letter wns received by
James distance from his brother, who
is now in Africa :
Sunday, April 8.
Dear Jim���1 will now try to give yon
a short account of our trip up to date.
I wrote yon last from Ottawa. Well,
you see. by the papers what a splendid
reception they gave us at Montreal,
although we onlv stayed there about
five hours. The people were most enthusiastic, and certainly did all they
could to give ns a good time in the
short hours we were the.re. We had a
very slow trip to Halifax as there was
heavy snow all the way nnd our trains
were very long on account of the horses.
Considerable enthusiasm was shown all
���/ along the line. I was in the last train,
so did not see the presentation of the
Hug at Moncton, but there wns quite ii
crowd at the Station, Weil, the last
train got into Halifax about 0 a. m. on
the [5th inst , and we pulled right into
the dock where the Monterey was; then
we unloaded the horses and put them
on the ship, and of course there was a
lot of otlier work Ut be done in the way
of loading "kits,'' etc. That evening
the people of Halifax gave us a smoking
concert, which was much appreciated, |
and we turned in for the night at the
exhibition grounds. The next morning
was principally spent by the men in
writing Ihe lust letters home and to
their friends. After dinner we ull
marched down to the large armory,
where we were Inspected by General
Lord Seymour and others; then there
were a few speeches and two telegrams
were read to us by Dr. Borden, minister
of militia, one from tbe Queen and one
from Lord Strathcona. I think we
were all feeling pretty proud at that
time. We were very much disappointed
that Lord Strathcona could not get out
to inspect us before we went We then
marched nut beaded by bands and paraded the streets, which were packed
with people, for about an hour and a
half, and then finally wound up at the
dock about 5 p. in.
We went straight on board and were
kept below till Ihe vessel had got clear
of the dock, and then we were allowed
up, and very soon the rigging was full
anil a good cheering crowd we were, and
the docks for a long distance just looked
like a mass of humanity. We pulled
out u short ili.-ta ice and then anchored,
us it was very rough outside the harbor.
The next day, March  17,  about 10:80 a.
ni., tbey pulled up the anchors and away
we went. We were then saluted by the
fort guns ns we passe 1. As soon as we
g��t outside we found a pretty heavy
swell on and before long a goodly number were hanging their heads over the
side and looking very miserable. All
those who were not ill were kept very
busy fur two or three days in looking
utter the horses and trying to make
order of some kind take the place of
confusion.
You will be glad to hear that Edgar
and myself were not seasick, and we
never missed a meal ou the voyage.
The horses began to fall off right away ;
they were too crowded for one thing and
tbey were not dieted at all, as they
should have been. ThS veterinary offl-
'''^cerdid not understand his business and
would not take, any advice; also, some
of the horses hid bad colds, in fact they
hud distemper und should have been
left behind ut Ottawa. One died before
we reached Halifax, which should have
been n warning to them. Then every
horse was slung up on the start and the
slings left on, and the consequence was
some of the slings didn't fit and the poor
brutes were swung about backwards
and forwards, and the slings as they got
wet underneath chafed and galled them,
so that by the time we got into warm
weather the smell was unbearable. Of
course I needn't tell that the slings are
only meant to be used in calm weather
to rest the horses, but when it is rough
should be taken off. as a horse can brace
himself if left alone in any weather.
The ship is certainly a "roller," the
cause being that so much of the weight
is out of   the  water,  i. e.,  the horses.
However, after a week or so, order
being pretty well restored and most of
the ollicers and men recovered Sufficiently to do their work, there was a
systematic plan adopted of feeding und
caring for the horses. But in spite of
ull that we could do, seasickness on the
start and disease latterly have made
away with 160 up to date, out of 001) on
the start, and I am afraid the balance
will be unlit for work for some time.
Most, of the time there has been a " fatigue " gang ut. work day and night getting the dead horses out. and throwing
them overboard.
We have sighted a few sharks and
whales following us up. We have seen
several sailing vessels and we met one
Bteamer last Sunday, which passed quite
close. She was the " Dictator," from
the Cape to Liverpool with wounded on
hoard ; as she was Hying the "fever"
signal we did not stop, us a good many
hoped we wo lid, to receive news nnd
send mail. We are now steaming about
275 knots in 24 hours, and expect to get
in on Tuesday. We shall all be glad to
tread on terra lirina again. We are getting most anxious to hear the war news
and to know if we shall get right to the
front. We have been having rillu and
revolver and bayonet practice for two
hours every day, and 1 think now that,
we could give a good account of ourselves. It has been whispered nrouud
that some of the ollicers have been heard
to say that C squadron is the pick, nnd
it is composed of British Columbia men
entirely. li. squadron is made up of
Calgary and the Northwest, and A.
eastern territories and Manitoba.
JJ^There has been a good deal of kicking
amongst the men ou board in regard to
the food, but 1 think we have fared as
well, or perhaps better, than they do on
most transports.
The canteen people, i. e., the chief
steward and purser, have not used us
very well us they were caught telling
stuff iu the canteen that had been put
on for our own use as gifts from people,
nnd then they charged such extortionate prices for all kinds ol arti.les. lint
we were given four pounds of tobl'.cCO
each by Sir MacDonald, the manufacturer in Montreal, nnd each mini got
about one pound of chocolate given by
tne high schools of Montreal, and there
was any amount of reading material on
board nnd writing paper put on by the
Y. M. C. A,, so that we haven't fared
so badly.
I forget to tell you that on passing the
equator on March 31, there was a half
holiday given, and Father Neptune
cnnie on board, nnd several ollicers and
a number of men were duly shaved aud
ducked in good style, the sailors having
rigged up a sail tank for the purpose.
Well, old chap, I think I have told you

Greenwood city in beginning to feel
the effects of rotten municipal legislation and inferior legal advice, but the
city council is beginning to show n little
horse sense. To stive further litigation
they have agreed to a compromise with
Mr. Ostroski. Will they have sense
enough developed by the time the city
solicitor gets back to decide to pay the
Rendell award, or will they appeal the
case and send a few more council
couriers to the coast at the expense of
the city.
The Saturday Uvenin. Post says the
word candidate is from the Latin can-
didatus, literally meaning white-robed.
Can anyone imagine Ihe candidates for
political honors iii British Columbia
being called white-robed after such papers us the Tribune, Province und Kuiri-
loops Sentinel have hud u mouth of the
vilest mud-slluging?
The city council bus abundance of
time to wrangle over city officials, uml
burrels of money to spend iu transplanting creek Humes and currying on litigu-
tion, bnl not u cent for those who Lave
lost everything they possessed in the
Sandon lire, Shame, shame, on such a
set of city representatives.
The Nelson doir poisoner is reported
by the Nelson Miner to have left that
dilv and come to the Boundary. If that
paper would give the scoundrel's name
he would meet with n warm teception
and he cooled off with a douse in the
creek upon bis arrival.

The Mackintosh ���' bra/en-throaled
spell-binders" are very persistent in
their efforts to impress upon the electors the vast amount of good that Mr.
Mackintosh has done the country hy
bringing money in to purchase tin' I.''
Roi mine in Rosshtnd. Who did that
money most benefit? Why, Mr. .Mackintosh, himself, who then decided Unit
Sampler was a good place to incest his
commission, The money paid for tbe
l.e Roi wi-nl largely to Spokane, uml did
the province 110 material good The
mine was running full   blast   before the
sale wns  minlc,  uml   the Increase of
money disbursements has only been
in proportion to the natural increuse of
development of the properly, which
would have heen equally us much under
the old management, If we were to go
on the principle of electing as representatives people or corporations which
have brought large sums of money into
the country we should elect the full
board of C. P. R. directors to the Victoria legislature, us they have expended
much more money iu the province than
than .Mr Mackintosh or his company.
Hut would the electors countenance
this? Would Vancouver elect Mr. Mar-
pole, or Nelson Mr. Peters. Would
Kamloops send (ieorge Munroe to Victoria as its representative, or Revelstoke Mr. Duchesnay. Of course not.
No 0. P. R. man would get votes
enough to enable him to save his deposit. The Dunsmtiir's have invested
millions in the province���how many
votes would 11 Dunsmuir man in each
constituency receive? He would be in
tbe same boat a" tne creature of the C.
P. K., and Mr. Mackintosh belongs to
the same category, and the luboringinen
EDITORIAL EXTRACTS.
We consider it wits very  inndvised  of
Mr. Ralph Smith   to  attempt  to  swing
the labor party for the Cottonltes us
against Mr. Martin under the circumstances which now exist in Ihe province, and especially owing to the implied-understanding between the two
factions opposing Mr, Martin, which
we have mentioned above.    We think
he will reconsider what he bus done.
To put up a labor candidate in ibis constituency would In this'ciintest ut least
mean the defeat of Hun, Smith Curtis,
the defeat of the labor candidate und
I the election of Mr. Mackintosh. Labor
fill the Kossland riding has officially
endorsed Mr, Curtis, and despite what
the Miner is pleased to say it will discover   after   the   polling day   that   the
action was concurred In by every member belonging to it.���Industrial  World.

Mackintosh Reception.
The. Mackintosh reception last night
was very much of a frost. While for
several days the managers of Mackintosh's campaign had strained Jevery
nerve to make it a great demonstration
in his favor, money in abundance was
spent, tbe affair was well advertised,
there was music nnd carriages galore,
still the people would not enthuse, ami
it must hiive cost Mr. Mackintosh several dollars to completely prove his own
Unpopularity, There were not UK) people on liuud to welcome the governor
home, und it was noticeable Hut even
this small crowd wns made up iilinost
exclusively of promoters, brokers, paid
agents and grafters. A 5-cent union
man wns also noticed in the crowd
cheering lor Mackintosh, He was one
of the half dozen who wanted a labor
candidate   so   badly   two   weeks    ago.

Meeting Turns Out to Be a
Curtis Success.
Mackintosh Can Name no Leader,
Nor Furnish a Platform, But Asks
the Electors to Trust him.
Rossland, May 14.���[Special to the
Miner.]���A large meeting called hy
Mackintosh here to-night turned out
overwhelmingly in favor of Curtis.
Mackintosh went buck to 1H72 to try
und show that the Liberal party was
nut then opposed to Chinese. He devoted his time to criticizing Martin but
went into no particulars, and his arguments were very week. His statements on Mongolian Immigration and
the eight hour law were Indefinite and
his supporters were much disappointed.
Mr. Curtis got a rousing reception
and his strong definite Statements on
railway, labor and Chinese questions
met with deafening applause. He effectually scored on every point made by
Mackintosh.
lie challenged  Mackintosh to name
bis leader and the platform he supported. In reply Mackintosh evaded both
and staled that he hud only to criticize
the Government platform and asked the
electors to trust him to do whatever was
right if returned. This proposition wns
coldly received and his entire speech
tvas most disappointing. The meeting
appeared to be fully two to one ill favor
of Curtis.

erated in accordance with the amount
of ore that can be bundled in the leaching tanks. This will require a great

You Never Saw
An Ugly Pair of
Slater Shoes....
"The Slater Comfort Shape."
The "Slater Shoe" is designed in the twelve foot-fitting
shapes of which the "Comfort" is one of the leader.
Has a wide sweeping curve on the outside, full round toe,
roomy at the great toe, high instep and handsome curves.
Comfortable as its name denotes, a combination
of strength and appearance.
A catalogue showing  all  the  shapes,
' styles and leathers of
the "Slater Shoe" free to every enquirer.
Every pair Goodyear welted with makers'
name and price stamped on the soles.
$3-5��. $4-5�� and $5-5��-
aud yet many of them cover comfortably most unlovely feet.    Beauty and style without
comfort in shoes is easily attainable.    Comfort without appearance is equally   simple.
It's the combination of these which raises shoe making to an art.    The presence of
this art you realize when you don your first pair of Slater Shoes.
