Return
-Mayor
At 10 a.m. Wednesday news arrived
in Greenwood of the surrender of Johannesburg and the citizens went wild.
Never in the city's history was such enthusiasm shown. The fire bells were
ringing and the shrieks of steam whistles
tilled the air.
Mayor Hardy, as soon as he received
tlie news, ordered a parade, and mounted on a magnificent charger took the
lead followed by the city council. The
fire department, the citizens' band,
dozens of carriages and scores of horsemen, to say nothing of Ihe immense
crowd of people on foot. After marching through the city the procession
headed for Anaconda to the music of
fife and drum and brass bands. On the
return a halt was made at the Rendell
corner and Mayor Hardy and Adolphus
Ferguson made patriotic speeches. The
parade then broke up but. the celebration continued long into tho night. In
the evening word came of Pretoria's
surrender and the wild joy increased a
hundred fold and on Thursday morning
had not been concluded. It was the red
letter day of the war in Greenwood

To the Electors of
Rossland Riding of West Kootenay :
GENTLEMEN:���
I solicit your support as a candidate at the approaching provincial
elections. My platform is that of the present 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 considet 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 benefit and elevate labor, no matter from which side of the House emanating, and I shall also stren-
nonsly oppose any attempt to repeal or emasculate the eight-hour law.
I am yours faitl fully,

Celebration Meeting.
The first of July celebration  committee will bold a meeting in the City  hall
on Friday evening, June 1st, at 8o'clock.
D. A. Ca.mhiios, Chairman.
Hon. Smith Curtis held a meeting at
the Auditorium on Wednesday evening.
C. J. McArthur occupied the chair; and
Mayor Hardy, W. J. Phelan, W. J.
Powell, J. R. Brown and others occupied
seats on the platform. On opening the
meeting the chairman announced that
45 minutes would be given to an opposition speaker, and Duncan Ross took a
seat on the platfom. The chairman
then introduced as the first speaker the
Hon. Smith Curtis, who was received
with deafening applause.
Mr. Curtis said he was glad to be in
Greenwood on the 30th of May, a day of
rejoicing for the whole nation. "Never
before in the history of the world has
such valor been seen as has been shown
by the British army in South Africa.
Though at first meeting reverses, they
never were discouraged, and after Lord
Roberts took the field they have constantly been successful. Let us show-
that though we mav be div!'l.��i mitt ���.
garri to politics, we all can give three
strong cheers for Lord Roberts." The
cheers were heartily Kiven, and the
speaker then said that he had with him
Mr. Foley, a miner, who would speak
later em-
He said the campaign was taking on
more of a personal aspect than he approved of. He had always treated Mr.
Mackintosh with courtesy, largely on
account of his age, but Mr. Mackintosh
and his colleagues had treated him most
unfairly. ' When the speaker made
statements of a personal clinructer he
had proved them absolutely; but Mr.
Mackintosh, et al, hud made false
charges against him, charges iu which
there was not a grain of truth. With
the exception of the Greenwood Minkii,
Phoenix Pioneer, Cascade Record, and
Rossland Industrial World, all the newspapers in the riding hud been treating
him unfairly. Those newspapers which
attacked him so virulently were nearly
all in tho pay of the opposition, He
said he knew tbis to be a fact, as some
of them had offered themselves for sale
to him. The editors of papers above
mentioned had all come out in his favor
without having received a hint from
him. As an example of press misrepresentation take the .Mackintosh meeting
at Eholt. The Rossland Miner had an
account that a resolution had been
passed endorsing Mackintosh. The
speaker said he had been assured
by the people of Eholt that the statement was entirely false.
Mr. Curtis vigorously denied the
charge made against him that he was
traveling on railway passes. He said
that passes had been sent to him but
that he had returned them.
The Grand Forks Gazette accused him
of not having paid  men in mir.es under

Gentleman.���"I believe you are the
man of whom 1 bought this walking-
stick?"
Proprietor.���' Yes, I sold you that
walking-stick."
"And you said the handle was of genuine ivory, and I find that it is artificial."
"I can't help it, sir. 1 import my
ivory direct from Ceylon, and the only
explanation 1 can give is that the elephants have taken to wearing false
tusks."
An old sea captain who had navigated
his ship many times round the world
persisted iii maintaining that our globe
is not a globe at all but a Hat surface.
No arguments, derisive or painstakingly
educational, could alter his opinion one
jot.   Someone said to him once:
"But if the earth is as you say, captain, there must be an edge to it. How-
is it that no one has ever tumbled over
the edge?"
"Why, of course they have,"  he an
swerel,    triumphantly;  "that's   where
the ships go that nre reported missing."
Two Joneses lived next door to each
other, and having to cull on one ol
them, Brown, of course, went to the
wrong house. A crabbed servant answered the bell, and on Brown asking
"Is this Mr. John Jones'?" she replied,
snappishly, as if she had been bothered
with many Btich inquiries, "No, it
ain't." and slammed the door in his
face. Brown walked on a few yards or
so, when a bright thought struck hint
He returned at once und rang the same
bell again Again the crabbed servant
appeared. "Who said it was?" asked
Brown, trliimpliiintly, unit walked away
On a rooont oouuinn n liirmingliuni officer in the army and his brother nlli

present was a (ice-eating, quarrelsome
major, who took advantage of Ids rank
to lay down the law- of military discipline in a somewhat offensive'manner
The Birmingham gentleman listened to
the orscln in silence for a few moment
and then observed during u lull:
"Major Tyson,   I saw a  man  Unlit
who would give any stun of  money for
the pleasure ef kk-king yon."
"Kicking tne!" exploded the incensed
Officer, "Kicking me!" I call upon
you to inline him Instantly I"
"I hardly like to tell  you,"   Bald   the
gentleman with assumed reluctance,
"1 insist upon knowing," loured Ihe
major, livid with rage.
"Oh, well, then, I'll tell you. It was
a fellow named Jones, who bus lost his
legs in an explosion, and pulls himself
about on wheels."
As a general rule Giinpson is n particularly inoffensive individual, but he is
not in a very good temper just at present.
The other morning while it was still
dark, he crept noislessly downstairs,
and set to work to clear the snow fioni
the front of his residence.
He worked like a nigger for an hour
and a half, und when lie trotted off to
business he chuckled at the thought of
the pleasant surprise awaiting his wife.
When he returned to lunch he expected
the subject to be mentioned, and he was
not disappointed.
"That man did his work remarkably
wall,1'said his wife. "There wasn't a
bit of hiioiv left when he'd finished I"
"What man?" gasped Giinpson,
"The man you engaged to clear away
tho snow, dear," was the reply. "He
wns jusl finishing when I came down.
I gave him n shilling! Was that right,

Ginipson didn't speak for some minutes, and w hen he did his wife got up
from the table and left hiin���ns she put

THE   OREENWOOD   MINER.
A CURTIS MEETING
Continued from first page.
This charge was also ali.so-
his control
lutely false.
Mr, Goodeve has HBked everyone to
look well into Mackintosh's past record.
Speaking of the NorthweBt exposition
Mr. Curtis poin ed out that the Dominion government was compelled to
pay $13,0000 in wages, etc., which was
entirely due tu the mismanagement of
Mr. Mackintosh.
At this point the meeting was interrupted by a crowd of Mackintosh supporters who ontered the hall loudly
singing and waving flags. The chairman got up and his voice could be distinctly heard above the din, "Gentlemen, you have forgotten your home
training, you are blackguards in neckties." He called on the police to interfere. There was no response and several gentlemen started to find the chief.
There were cries all over the hall of
"We'll attend to thechappies, "andthey
quieted down as Mr. Curtis continued.
"The employes as the C. P. R. at the
Trail smelter were told that failing to
vote for Mackintosh their positions
would not be secure."
The Rossland Miner makes the curious statement that Curtis is an honest
man���a man who will carry out his
I r muses to the letter. Therefore he
should not bo elected, us the platform
he advocates should not be curried out.
The inference is that Mackintosh is a
man who will not carry out his promises
to the very letter should he be elected.
Again the meeting was disturbed by
the Mackintosh gang. This time the
audience would stand no fooling and attacked the disturbers in a body. A
sharp mix-up ensued for a few minutes.
The door was then opened and the gang
hustled out without any ceremony.
One of the ringleaders, who sported u
very black eye, pushed his way to the
front aud climbing up on the stage endeavored to speak to the audience.
Loud shouts of "put him out!" prevented him from being heard, und the
chairman, failing to make him listen to
reason and retire peaceably, finally hud
to eject him forcibly. Chief McLaren
by this time hud succeeded in getting
the audience reseated, und declared that
the first man who disturbed the meeting
would bo put out.
Referring to the charges against Mr.
Mackintosh with regard to the Sunset
deal in the Similkuiiieen, Mr. Curtis ill-
lirnied that Mackintosh hud endeavored
to black-eye the property. He was denounced lor this iu plain terms by the
Greenwood Times and the Grand Forks
Miner. Urown hud borrowed $4,500
from Mackintosh who, not content with
10 per cent interest and a mortgage,
also obtained an option on the property,
for  which  he has never  paid  a cent.
ten letters to nianv papers in eastern
! Canada and in England, stating that he
had spent considerable money on the
property. The fact is that he had not
spent a cent. That was his way of
black-eyeing the property. Amid
cheers Mr. Curtis gave way to Mr. Chris
Foley, who was then introduced. A
few interruptions occured during his address, and one prominent citizen was finally marched out by the chief.
Mr. Foley stated that he had always
been a supporter of Mr. Curtis, who has
constantly proven himself to be a friend
of the laboring classes. In the Slocan
labor trouble when the miners there
seemed to be without a friend in the
world, Mr. Curtis came forward as their
champion. Therefore it is the doty of
every workingman to vote into power
the man who did not fail them in their
hour of need. We are told that Mackintosh was a labor candidate in Ottawa,
but if so he has since fallen from grace.
Referring to Mr. Martin, the speakerde-
clared himself firmly convinced that he
was a friend of labor. He is the Napoleon of British Columbia politics, and
will stand by the workingmen. He
will enact laws to protect white laborers
from the Chinese und Jap competition.
Mr. Foley then gave an account of a
Mackintosh meeting held some time
ago in Rossland. A little man from
Greenwood wanted Mackintosh returned, because he thought that would enable 111 in to sell a few of his wild cats.
Tlie little gentleman referred to came
forward and denied this statement. He
wauled to get. up on the platform, but
the chairman would not allow him to do
so. With the aid of an ollicer he found
a seat und quieted down.
Mr. Foley, referring to the eight-hour
law, said it was classed by many as experimental legislation, who, therefore,
denounced it. It is only by experimental legislation that great reforms are
brought about. It is also said that the
government is permeated by socialism.
That is not such a great crime. Then
they say that the government has
drifted into the hands of agitators.
Moses and Christ, and in our own time
Gladstone, have all been branded us agitators, and they have blazed the way
for the whole human race. Agnation
is for the world's best good, yet an agi-
tutor who wants to mukc it better for
his fellow men, is culled a rulhun. Mr.
Goodeve is a snake in the gruss. He is
the ti inn who had special constables
appointed in Rossland, although afterwards he denied having had anything
to do with it. It has been decided by
tho Western Federation of Miners to
bring politics into tho unions and capture political power. If you put Mackintosh into power, you are supporting a
man who will remove the penalty
clause from the eight-hour law, thus
virtually repealing that law. Laboring-
men, vote for Smith Curtis and you may
rest assured that your interests are in
the hands of a man  who will  put them

Brown made assignment as security for
himself.    Martin and Curtis received no brio��� everything else, and who will not
pay for their services,  which  had  been go back on you.   The speaker took his
r^iidired gratis.    Mackintosh had  writ- continued on page six.

Fire at the War Eaele.
Rossland Miner, May 25: Fire yesterday destroyed the upper ore bins at
the War Kagle mine. Tbe Humes bryoke
out ut 10:30 a. m. and were soon afterwards discovered by Mr. 0, V. Jenkins,
the. accountant, who promptly gave the
alarm. The whistle summoned the
War Eagle department, which worked
under the direction of Mr. Charles
Rinehart, the superintendent of construction. SuperigtendentDavis, Assistant Superintendent Fitzwilliams and
(iiiy Williams also did efficient service.
As soon as Chief Guthrie saw the flames
he sent Assistant Chief Collins and Firemen William Boyd and Fred Wilson
with a hose cart to aid infighting the
fire. The hose curt was returned as
there was umple hose on  baud for the
purpose.   A line of hose  was run from
the hoist house and water pumped from
a 5,000 gallon tank in the same building
by u duplex pump.   There   was   some
feur that the flames might reach the big
steel shaft house, but the tramway was
!cut away finally, and this, together with
! the fact that the stream  thrown on the
I fire prevented such a contingency.   By
| hard  work  the  Haines  were got under
I control,  although they  hud got such a
start that there  was no hope of saving
! the bunkers.   The fire was allowed to
, burn itself out.   It made quite a large
blaze at one time.   This can  readily be
[ understood when it is known that there
! was about 100,000 feet of lumber in the
bunkers, and  when the flames were in
: full blast they   made considerable  heat
' for a long distance around.    The loss iB
about $10,000. The four bins Jare to be
replaced by others of twice the capacity.
The burned bin had a capacity of 1,000
tons, and the new ones will bold 2,000
tons.
GENERAL NEWS NOTES.
The Toronto World publishes a rumor
to the effect that Lord Strathcona will
be asked to re-enter Canadian public
life and run in the liberal interests as
prospective minister of trades and commerce.
For the first, time on record the Czar
invited the members of the British embassy to dinner on the occasion of the
Queen's birthday last week. The innovation is regarded as of great political
significance.
Tbe quarrel between the late conservative organizer. Birmingham, and the
leader of that party is said to have created consternation among the tory
ranks of Toronto, and there is in consequence, a movement on foot to procure
the silence of the former at any cost.
Speculation is now rife as to who will
be the first viceroy of Federated Australia. The Duke of Fife is frequently
mentioned, but his royal wife is notoriously disinclined to taking part in state
functions. The new Duke of Argyll!
and the Earls of Hopeton and New Jersey are also declared to have a chance of
filling the important position.

A CURTIS MEETING
Continued from page three.
seat amid a  roar of applause from the
audience.
The next speaker was Mr. Ross, who
referred to Mr. Curtis' remarks concerning the saleable papers in this riding,
He affirmed that his paper had not
been offered for sale, and was not bought.
Mr. Curtis corrected him, saying he hud
made no reference whatever to the
Greenwood Times.
Mr. Curtis said he wanted to deal in
no personalities, yet for an hour he gave
us nothing else. Referring to the
Northwest exposition he pointed out
that it had been u great success. [Cries
of ruts.] The committee who managed
the affair was responsible for the deficit
not Mr. Mackintosh.
Mr. Ross apparently got roads, trails
and bridges mixed up with railways, for
he said that Martin proposed to borrow
$20,000,000 for roads, trails and bridges.
He showed that four years ago Martin
was not in favor of government ownership of railways, but hud since changed
his mind. Some time ago Martin told
a committee from Vancouver that be
had no use for the eight-hour law.
[Cries of "tell the truth. Ross."] Mr.
Rons declared he was going lo vote for
Mr. Mackintosh simply because he was
opposed to Joe Martin. Martin is
simply trying to make an excuse for
sacrificing your rights. [Voice from the
audience���"Ain't you getting  mixed?"]
"Not a bit," said Ross ; "we are having lots of fun." And having made the
poorest, most illogical, childish talk ever
heard on a Greenwood platform, the
speaker sat down.
Mr. Curtis again came forward and
said if Mackintosh was returned there
wnn't l.,c mmtlicr oleotlon for four years.
It. is Impossible for Mackintosh to promise you an election within four years,
because be has no party and no leader.
We are pledged to give one within two
years.
The attitude taken by the government
is already bearing fruit. Diiiisinuir has
dismissed Chinese and Japs ami wauls
white men in their places. He would
not have taken that step if all the platforms had been like Mackintosh's, Hy
public opinion we, will drive Japs out of
employment on ihe c. P, If. Duns-
iniiir says he has always given Chinese
laborers ihe same wages us white, but
really he bus given white men the name
wages as Chinese.
"The assets of the province will bo retained for the province. Mackintosh is
iii fuvor of bonusing corporations, If
natural resources are taken nnd fanned
for all the people all will get a full share,
and taxation will be reduced
"Mr. Ross, with characteristic bungling, said .Martin was going to borrow
if20,U00,U00 for roads trails and bridges.
Only $1,000,000 will be borrowed for
that purpose. Resources will be adver-
t sed, and trails will be built to develop
them, und as a direct result capital will
How in, und labor will be at a premium.
Every man will have n better chance to
make money than ever in Ihe past."
Then Mr. Curtis pointed out that it
would be a good thing for the smelters
of this district if a refinery were built at
the coast, and the matte shipped to it
over the proposed railway. They would
gain three cents a pound by it.
In Midway, he told the people he
had moved government ollices to Green-
Wood because it was right���not in order
to catch votes ut that place. Greenwood is the proper place for these
offices, and although he would get a
minority  in   Midway  on   that account,
he was bound to do the right thing.
The only plank in Mackintosh's platform is to defeat Martin.
The letter quoted by Mr. Ross from
Semlin to Turner was dated Feb. 2(ith
The house was dissolved on Feb. 23rd.
So the overtures referred to had no connection with the ooalation that had been
formed. On 27th Feb. Semlin informed
the lieutenant-governor .that be could
now carry on business of the government. This proves that Ralph Smith
was wrong in saying there was no other
coalation.
(loodeve accused Martin of trying to
set miners against mine owners by appealing to the prejudices of the people
on the eight-hour question. Goodeve
himself is the man who has done this.
The Martin government really brought
about a settlement of the labor trouble
in Rossland, and Mr. Chris Foley, one
of the strongest agitators, was one of the
first men to whom employment was
given.
At Midway connection will probably
be made with the (ireat Northern or
some other trans-continental railway.
If the Martin government is returned
this will happen inside of two years.
Connection will also be made, if government railway is continued eastward,
at Cascade, Carson, Kossland, Ymir und
several other points. Tnis shows Mr.
(loodeve to be wrong when lie says we
will have no connections except with
the C. P. R. The tariff on British
goods has been reduced 33';, per cent.
We shall have them brought by ship to
Vancouver and Victhria. If the C P.
want to compete they will have to haul
down tluiir freight rates
After referring to Mr. Bodwell's record, und showing that many of his Statements were misleading, Mr. Curtis paid
Sir Wilfred Laurier a tribute us the
greatest leader Canada ever hud. "He
has wiped out the nice filed and bus cemented together the colonies of the
British empire.
Referring to Mackintosh's policy and
record, Mr. Curtis pointed out that they
had neither policy nor leader.
"Vote for Martin and Curtis and you
will have good legislation, nnd men upon
whom you can depend.

THE ABSENT-MINDED MULE.
Mr. T. W. II. Cropland, has written u
smart parody of Kipling's famous  poem
under the title of "The  Absent-Miinleil
Mule." The following is a verse or two:
When you're walking out your Glou-
nesters and your Irish Fusiliers
And you feel like shipping  Kruger in
ih.' mouth,
Don't forget to keep an optic on a   little
chap with ears,
A gentleman in floor-boards just come
south ;
He's an absent-minded beggar, and his
style is pretty high���
Though of  course  we've got  to  take
him as we Iind him���
He is here on  active service,  and  he's
been and done a guy,
And left a lot o' things behind him !
Old   mule���bold   mule���mule    of    the
hairy tail���
Mule of spirit und swift hind foot and
flabby scornful li|i���
Each of him doing his country's  work
(how when be happens to fail?)
Never   go  nap on   any  army  mule,
'cause he'll skip! skip! skip!
*       *       *      *
