The ''Miner's"
Position.
TO OUR READERS/
While I was east during the winter,
R. E. Gosnell was editor and manager
of the "Miner"; and when I returned
he claimed he had a deal on for the
paper with C, H. Mackintosh of Rossland. For business reasons I took Mr.
Gosnell's place as managing editor of
the "Miner;" and as I wished to return
to my old business as mining engineer,
I wrote to Mr. Mackintosh as he says on
April 4th, offering him the "Miner" for
$3,000 cash, At that time Mr. Mackintosh was not in the political field and
was not nominated ,until April 10th,
which conclusively proves that I was
not selling the paper from political,
but purely from business motives; and
my offering the "Miner" for sale has
not the slightest effect on the stand I
have taken for the Hon. Smith Curtis
in this election. I might say that a
certain Greenwood bank was asked if
it would accept a draft on Mr. Mackintosh for the amount of the purchase
money of the "Miner" and it refused.
Mr. Mackintosh is a falsifier if he
dares say that he was offered the
"Miner", for political purposes, for any
amount whatever; and is a despicable
coward to make such a charge right on
the eve of election, when he imagines
I have no time to answer it.

while he was in the territories. The
challenge has been taken up and the array of facts presented to the voters is a
most damning one, dealing largely with
the funds of Ihe territorial exposition,

GENTLEMEN:���
I solicit your support as a candidate at tho approaching provincial
elections. My platform is that of the preterit government, and is set
out on another page, and I pledge myself to support the principles and
measures therein announced.
A joint meeting of the Unions affiliated with the Trades and Labor council of Rossland and the affiliated Unions ot Greenwood, hav
ing done me the honor to endorse my candidature, I considei myself
as much a labor candidate as a government one, and whether the government be sustained or not, I shall, if elected, be always found heartily supporting measures designed to henelit and elevate labor, no matter from which side of the House emanating, and I shall also strenuously oppose any attempt to repeal or emasculate the eight-hour law.
1 am yours faithfully,

W. E. Henton, chief of the fire department, reported that the lire wagon was

D. A. Cameron on behalf of the celebration committee, addressed the coun-
with comments on his public and private character, and public and private
acts, and paint him in the blackest light.
One paper summing up the whole question said: "Mr. Mackintosh has brought
the office of lieutenant-governor into
contempt, and made it a by-word among

Work has been resumed on the R

What The Times Says.
"The ONLY LABOR LEADERS who
are supporting THE MARTIN in tbis
election look tu DKNVBIt tor Instructions, while the TRULY LOYAL and
PATRIOTIC BRITISH laboring man
who finds in the history of his own country sufficient to direct his political
course is found fighting Martinisin and
for good government."
This is another slap in the face for Mr.
Chris Foley, Jus. Devine, and Jus.
Wilkes, in facta slap in the face for a
majority of the workingmen of B. C,

MARTIN GOVERNMENT.
PREMIER MARTIN.
Is Endorsed By the Workingmen of Victoria
In the Following Resolution.
"We, the workingmen of Victoria, 11.
('., in public meeting assembled, do
hereby adopt the platform of the'prcs-
cut. govern nient, believing that it is a
policy of development, progress and
prosperity for the province, benefitting
alike the merchant, manufacturer,
trader, farmer and the general working
classes.
"And we deplore the fact that through
misconception of united labor interests
certain of our most esteemed labor lead
ers have been lead at this inopportune
time to place labor candidates in nomination, and thus striving to defeat the
best, legislation for the masses that wo
have ever had in the province of Britisli
Columbia.
"And further be it resolved that we
have every confidence in the Hon. Jos.
Martin, as leader of a strong, stable
government, believing that, he will carry out the government platform in its
entirety, check the monopolistic corporations, and put an end vojthe importation of cheap Mongolian Tabor.

A Mass Meeting Composed ol Delegates From
Varions Unions Endorse the Government
Platform���Trades Council Issues Circular
Letter to Organized Labor.
The following letter lias been issued
by the Trades and Labor Council of tbe
Boundary district:
Greenwood, B. C, May 21, 1900.
Dear Sir :���
A mass meeting oi organized labor
held in Greenwood on Saturday evening,
May 19th, 1900, unanimously endorsed
the Martin Government and platform,
and the candidature of Hon. Smith
Curtis. Representatives were present
from all the Unions, and from these a
committee was appointed to act in conjunction with the Curtis committee.
You not being present at the union
mass meeting, and knowing that you
have the interests of labor at heart, we
take this opportunity of notifying you
of our action, in order that you may
work with us in the return of a gover-
eriinient favorable to organized labor.
We remain, yours fraternally,

Mackintosh's Telegram.
The many friends of ex-Lieutenant-
Governor Mackintosh will be delighted
to read the brief message, "My election

to tlie Citizen.���Ottawa Citizen.
Ex-Lieutenant-Governor Mackintosh
stands about ns much show of oeing

Kootenay as a snowball would bave of

Bismark's Retort.
Paul Kruger met Bismarck once and
was disposed to boast ot the success of
his former war with'the British. "Yes,"
Bismarck is reported to have said, "but
you should go on your knees and thank
the Almighty that It wan CjUdntonc ami
not Disraeli you hail to ileal with. Disraeli would have hanged you."
The Baden-Powell Family.
The family of Colonel Baden-Powell
has so many members who are distinguished for cleverness and versatility that
it is not a little surprising that they get
n little mixed in the public mind. The
tendency at present is to attribute every
achievement by Baden-Powell to the
hero of Mafeking. We read almost
daily of his was kites and his war baloon,
neither of which inventions belongs to
him, both being the property of his
brother, Major F. S. Baden-Powell, of
the Scots Guards, now at the front. He
is a recognized authority on aeronautical subjects. His war kites are now in
practical use in South Africa, aiding
Marconis wireles-i telegraphy, The
Major has made twenty-six voyages in
his baloon.

that made by the Hon. Smith Curtis.���

James Stables, one of the pioneers of
Atlin and a large mine owner, is the
straight government candidate in Cassiar. On May 10th, at. the largest and
most enthusiastic meeting ever held in
Cassiar, -Mr Stables was .unanimously
nominated, He bus the confidence of
all residents of the district irrespective
of politics, and is undoubtedly making a whining light. It is confidently
expected that his majority in Atlin
alone will be c.t least 200.���Vancouver

The conservative candidates throughout Kootenay never lose an opportunity
to denounce the Chinese and Japanese
evil. Yet. the party is doing all it can
to secure the return of James Dunsniuir, the great employer of Chinese on
Vancouier Island, nnd of Joseph Hunter, who employed hundreds of Chinese
in Cariboo, in preference to white labor,
The conservative party Is just as inconsistent upon the Chinese and Japanese
question as it is upon the eight-hour
law.���Nelson Tribune.
Midway Advance: "Mr. Smith Curtis stated last Wednesday night that he
Innl been asked to buy the newspapers
that are opposing him in this riding and
had refused to do it. He was challenged

and admitted tltat he did not include
that paper. If he intended to convey
the impression that The Advance in any
way at all approached him or any one
connected with him lie did so knowing
it. to he absolutely untrue."
This is the most laughable thing of
the campaign, Curtis or anybody else
to purchase the Advance, What on
earth would they do with it? There
may he uses to which it. might be put
but we won't mention them here. It
would without doubt take much money
to buy that well known and widely circulated journal; well known from Keremeos to Cascade City; whose editor is

FRIDAY, JUNE H. llillll.
er   prominent   illusion    among   Grand
Forks papers.
The seal) journal at Midway says that
Mr. Mackintosli is likely to receive
generous support from the miners, who
recognize that he recently played an important part in settling lahor difficulties
at Rossland." Mackintosh settle lahor
troubles; the ex governor a friend of
labor; Goodeve's friend a friend of the
workingman.   This is a joke.
Miners' Hotel,
COPPER STREET.
The Times is not telling the truth
when it says editorially that Mr. Curtis
repudiated Mr. Martin when at Greenwood. Mr. Curtis did nothing OI the
kind ; ho acknowledged him as his leader und spoke in wannest terms of praise
of his statesmanship abilities; but he
did not say that ho was bound neck and
heels to Mr. Martin ; lie would support
tlie platform which Air. Martin had
laid down, but on other questions ho
would exercise his own, independent
judgment,
In a recent issue of the Rossland
Miner, among the news from Grand
Forks, was the statement that Fred
Wnllaston had forsaken the Curtis party
and was supporting Mackintosh. This
lie was promptly refuted by the Greenwood Miner on June 5th. In the meantime Mr. W'oliastan had written a letter
to the Rossland Miner, dated June 2nd,
denying the statement, but that journal did not sen lit to publish it until
June (ith. All the Mackintosh campaign lifts are coming home to roost.
Our contemporary will suffer a very
severe shock on June llth, i. e., if it puts
any credence iu its own editorials, of
which we have grave doubts. In Tucs-
days's issue it says that Mr. Martin is
doomed to certain defeat, and that Mr.
Curtis, though he were an angel of light,
cannot escape the fate of his leader.
The Timet will come out, of its shell on
the llth inst. a sadder but a wiser
sheet.	
Tho election of Joseph Martin, and a
majority of his supporters, means a loss
to the C. I'. R. of (1800,000 which, it is j
claimed they put into the opposition
campaign fund. If you vote against the
Martin government you are voting for
the C. P. R-, a corporation which employs Mongolians in place of white peo-
pie: and when white men are employed
they get, Mongolian wages.
The Grand Forks Gazette says that at
the beginning of the campaign it was
reticent, giving both sides fair play, hut I
later on it cast its lot with  the   Mackintosh party.heeause "Mackintosh had com- ;
pletely  dispelled  the   illusion   that  he!
was in any  manner inimical  to Grand
Forks.    Six hundred will dispel a rath-!
Mr. K. V. Bodwell on March 16th denounced Joseph Martin as the author of
the eight-hour law, and is now advising
the laboring man not to vote for him,
Rut organized labor knows its friends,
and Mr. Marlins's supporter, Hon.
Smith Curtis, will bo supported en
masse by the labor men of thu district.
Bodwell has no weight with the lovers of good government, as he signed
Turner's nomination paper in Victoria
on the 2lith ult., thus doing his utmost
to oppose the cause of good government.
Tomorrow the mists of Mackintosh-
ism, Turnerisni and Mongolianism will
tiave rolled away, ami the bright
sail oi good government will shine icrth
in strength and splendor.
"Demosthenes Blatherskite" Bogle
paid Cascade a visit this week and returned to Kossland convinced that he
liau gone up against an ace lull with a
boolaii llusii.  .
"R. A. Brown has decided to support
the cause ot good government. And
LJurtis nas lo.it another vole."
This is another Grand Forks Gazette
lie.
Did anyone read the long-winded appeal for votes by C. H." Mackintosh m
the Rossland Miner, June 3rd? The
whole district was flooded with the issue.
lloiV did ivlitor Koss relish the lion.
C. 11. Mackintosh's linguistic instigation of lion Geo. Brown, the patron
saint of all Scotch-Canadian liberals?
After Saturday the name of C. Ii.
Mackintosh will be sunk into political
oblivion, and his friends will he wondering how it happened.
Reports from Gladstone and Cascade
says that Curtis will have at least two-
thirds of the votes polled in those precincts.
Mackintosh may be ii "knocker" iu
mining deals, but he is too slow to undertake to accomplish anything iu politics.

MARTIN IN MANITOBA.
The Winnipeg Tribune Pays Him High Tribute as a Public Man.
From the Winnipeg Tribune.
If the people of British Columbia but knew Mr. Martin
as we in Manitoba do, there would
not be the slightest doubt but that they
would respond in a treinendious majority lo the opportunity of putting him in
power to cary out his policy and to fulfil his pledges.
Though not at the head of the
government, Mr. Martin, in three
short years, did more in Manitoba for tlie public good than any otlier
man before or since in any length of
time. He put the executive admlnis
tration of the province on a business
like, economical> footing. Thorough
efficiency was introduced, and great reductions in expenditures were made.
Important legal reforms were accomplished, railway monopoly was broken,
freight rates were lowered, hundreds of
miles of railway were built at but a
fraction of the cost in public aid borne
by this province alone of any of the
roads provided for by the Dominion
government.
In righteousness of conduct to
the performance of his public duties, in the strict fulfillment of
his duty as a legislator and a public man,
in the faithful adherence to a high standard of duty in his relations ns a politician to the people, iu his absolute trustworthiness in a position of public trust,
Mr. Martin stands far above his opponents. To these merits he adds genuine
statesmanship, fearlessness and force.
Compared with him, his enemies and
opponents aro small, peddling parish
politicians.
Tribune on Martin.
The Winnipeg Tribune under the
heading "Hritish Columbia Elections,"
says editorially:
"In less than two weeks the contest
in Britisli Columbia will be decided and
it will be a great thing, not only for
that province, but for the whole dominion should Mr. Martin be returned to
power. That issue is still in doubt,
though indications are now most favorable���as a result of the most wonderful
fight ever put up in any province hy
o ie man single-handed. If the people
of British Columbia but knew Mr. Martin as we in Manitoba do, there would
not be the slightest doubt that they
would respond iu a tremendous majority to the opportunity of putting him in
power to carry out his policy and to fulfill his pledges
"Though not at the head of the government, Mr. Martin in three short
years did more iu Manitoba for Ihe public good than any other man before or
since in any length of time He put
the executive administration of the
province on a businesslike, economical
footing. Thorough efficiency was introduced, and great reductions in expenditure were made. Important legal reforms were accomplished, railway monopoly was broken, freight rates were
lowered, hundreds of miles of railway
were built at but a fraction of the cost
in public aid borne by this province
alone of any of the roads provided for
by the dominion government, If he
had had his way bonding powers would
have been kept down to actual requirements of the roads. The separate school
ByBtem was abolished, and a single system of public schools for all races anil
creeds was established."

PICKED   SPECIMENS.
A lirm of plumbers were unfortunate
lately in their choice of words. They
wanted to inform the public "We still
lead j" but it came out in the advertisement, "We steal lend."
"In looking out of doors, do you notice how bright is the green of the grass
and tlie leaves?" asked an elderly gentleman of a little girl, whose home he
wns visiting.
"Yes, sir."
"Why does it appear so much brighter at this time?" lie. next asked, looking
down upon the bright, sweet face with
tender interest.
"Because ma has cleaned the window,
nnd you can see out bettor," she said.
According to the Chicago Daily News,
a young clerk in an ollice on Fiftli avenue lately became very much dissatisfied
with his position and as a consequence
his employer became dissatisfied with
him.
So it happened that each inserted an
advertisement in a daily paper, and
each wrote in response to each other's
expressed want. It happened also that
they sat near each other in the office
and received their answers simultaneously.
This is what the employer read :
"Sir: I am competent, faithful and a
hustler. 1 desire to change because my
present employer is unreasonable and
unappreciative."
This is what the young man read :
"Sir: I want a young mini with some
brains and get up to him. Call at once
if you desire to work. No more nonentities wanted."
Then the explosion occured.
"See that man?" said the clerk of an
up town hotel to me this evening as a
handsome, middle aged man strolled
through the lobby "That is the president of the   Life Insurance company. He married his stenographer
last spring. It was quite a romance.
He and the girl and his office boy were
coming down in the elevator in the insurance building one afternoon when
the stenographer saw a mouse on the
boy's shoulder. She threw her arms
around the president's neck and
gcreamed to him to protect her. The
mouse cowered in a corner until the
elevator reached the bottom floor and
then escaped, tho girl holding the president all the time. Well, ho liked the
sensation of being hugged by a pretty
girl so much that he married her a few
weeks afterward."
"And what became of the ollice boy?"
I asked.
"Oh, he has a desk in the ollice at a
good salary now, and in his line to he
president in due time," answered the
clerk carelessly.
again. "I want you to understand
what a miracle is, and I'm sure you do.
Now, just suppose that on the third day
you were looking out of the twentieth
story window and fell out and struck
your head on tlie pavement 20 stories
below and were not in tho least injured.
Come, now, what would you call it?"
"Three times?" said the witness,
rousing a little from his apathy.
"Well, IM call that a habit."
And the lawyer gave it up.
The lawyer asked the wisness if an incident previously alluded to wasn't a
miracle, and the witness said he didn't
know what a miracle was.
"Oh, come," said the attorney, "supposing you were looking out a window
in the twentieth story of a building and
should fall out and not be injured.
What would yon call that?"
"An accident," was the stolid reply.
"Yes, yes; but what else would you
call it? Well, suppose you were doing
the same thing the next day; suppose
you looked out of the twentieth story
window and fell out again and find
yourself not injured. Now, what would
you call that?"
"A coincidence," said the witness.
"Oh, come, now," the lawyer began

BODWELL AT ROSSLAND.
The Organ of Organized Labor Tells the Story
In An Apt Manner.
Mr. Bodwell said there were nt this
time many people who considered Martin a heaven sent legislator, arisen to
bring light out of darkness iu this province. The railway attorney was just
right. More than half the people of B.
C. believe this very thing, and point to
a great deal of enlightened legislation to
justify them in their belief.
He said  Martin is a destroyer.   That

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,
room- 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.

and yet many of them cover comfortably most unlovely feet.    Beauty aud style without
comfort iu shoes is easily attainable.    Comfort without appearance is equally  simple.
It's the combination of these which raises shoe making to an art.
this art you realize when you don your first pair of Slater Shoes.

is very true. He has destsoyed a great
deal which men of the speaker's stamp
have built up, viz., a government of the
few. for their friends, and whose motto
was "The people be damned."
Mr. Bodwell next attempted to show
that Mr. Martin was not in favor of
government ownership of railways;
that if he was, government ownership
was not practicable; that if it was practicable Martin could not get the money
to build it; and if he could get the
money he couldn't build the railroad
anyhow ; that if he did build the road it
could not be operated successfully, the
people would not bo able to pay for it,
and the province would go busted.
For three hours 800 bored men listened to him. and then broke away ami
forget the nightmare in a rousing celebration of the reported capture of the
Boer capital.

Keep Out 01 Politics.
Yes, dear   workingman,   keep nut of
polities;   you    should    know    nothing
about the manipulation of government
Leave this to the sharp-headed politicians. They will show you that Capital
is greater than God Almighty: that it
has the Inalienable right to goad you into desperation, and if you dare lo resent
its dictates, no matter how diabolical
they may be, how easy it can have you
punctured with bayonets and cold lead.
Sure, workingmen ; keep out of polities
and suppose yourself to he dead.���Midland Mechanic.
