Reported Relief of That

(SPECIALS TO Till'.  MINER.)
London, Mny IT ���Tlio closing days
of tbe ilniiiiii at Mufeking hnve been
marked by au intensity of ilrniuutic interest aa unexpected 11s it is oat o[ proportion to the forces engaged. The
news that the half furnished garrison
was not only able to tepel an attack,
lint to inflict suoh heavy loss in killed
nnd prisoners, as reported iu the dispatch from Cnpe Town announcing tho
oaptnre of Commandant Eloff, the
-randson of President Krnger and
I '.iinety of bis men, making Great
Britain more than ever proud of Colourl
Baden-Powell's Mttle hand and increases to a fever pitch tbe natiounl
desire for their relief.
Lord Roberts and his large army at
Kroonstadt mid Gennviil Puller's
enormous forces forging over the Rig-
gareberg Range,ur,, almost entirely tor-
gotten. Everyone Is thinking or talk-
on; of Mafeking nnd the latest exploits
of its defenders. Rumors continue that
the relief of the pince has been accomplished, bnt all otllcial confirmation
of tbe reports was lacking nt 1 o'clock
this afternoon. There wns considerable speculation as to what Colonel
linden Pmvt'lI wonld do with b s
ninety prisoners and ns to whether the
viotory had not so depleted Ins fnroe us
to render him open to uunihilntiou lu
the event of another nrtnek by the
superior Boei numbers, but Lorenzo
Marqnez already hears rumors thnt
these lnn'c been ont oil' by the relieving
colnmn. According to geuornl opinion,
news ol the termination of the (legislate straggle between the besieged and
besiegors must reach England before
tomorrow.
General Boiler is makiug good progress in the recapture of the railroad
and tbe driving of the Boeis ont of
Natal. His ocenpntion of Diiunbauser
shows that he is meeting with little
resistanoe on the part of tlie Burghers.
Lord Roberts is still gathering bis
foroes to strike tho Vunl River.
Pretoria, Mny 17���An official despatch nnnouuees Hint the Federal

BOER DELEGATES.
Details of Their Reception in New
York Yesterday Afternoon.
New York, May 17.���The particular
event, in connection witb the visit to
this city of the Boer delegates, oo-
ourred this afternoon wben they were
received at the City Hall by Mayor
Van Wyok, and, in accordance witb
tbe resolution passed by tbe municipal
assembly, oftlolally welcomed to tbe
oity. Accompanied by the reception
e.iiniiuhee and ii delegation from the
South Africa Ulub, the delegates drove
from the Manhattan Hotel to the Uity
Hall where the municipal assembly
nnd the Mayor were awaiting them.
In anticipation of their arrival, the
customary large crowd around tha City
Hall was largely increased and the
services of a number of officers were
required to keep the people from the
Mayor's oflice. The hour set for the
recoption of the Boers was ii o'clock
and promptly on time the first of tbe
oarriagcu turned into Oity Hall Park.
The crowd pressed around the oarriages
add cheered and the delegates raised
their hats iu acknowledgement.
Mayor Van Wyck was at bis
desk when the delegates entered
his ollice. Killinn Vanrensaeler, chairman of the reception committee, introduced each of the delegates in tnrn to
tbe Major, who said : " I am delighted lo welcome you to the city of New
York and assure you that in Amerioa,
you will receive a cordial welcome
irora the liberty loving people of this
country. I desire to inform yon that
the representatives of the oity of New
York have asked me to extend a welcome, and 1 welcome yon on behalf of
the people uf the oity. "
As the envoys left the City Ball,
they were shaken by the hands by persons on all sides. On making their
appearance Mr, Fisher, standing ou
the steps of the City Hall, delivered
an address in which he said that tbe
people of the Transvaal and the Orange
Free State were struggling for their
liberty and wanted the sympathy of
the people of America. Then they
were escorted to their carriages. It
took several minutes to extricate the
carriages from the crowd which pressed around and shook hands with the
delegates,

(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London, May 18.���3 a.m.���England
still waits for news of the relief of
Mafeking. A crowd, remarkable for
the number of men, is waiting at
midnight, including many ladies,
lingering around the War Office, hoping for some announcement. One
thing seenr.s clear, the town stlll.holds
out, were, it otherwise, the Boer wires
laid to the camp of tlie beleaguered
would have flashed tlie news. Skeleton messages from Lorenzo Marque/.,
bie.ed on information that leaked ont
of the War Oflice, show that the Boer
stormers Saturday fell into a trap.
Colonel Baden-Powell permitted them
to seine one fort and then surrounded
and overtook them before the large
forces near at hand perceived tlie
strategy. It was thus that Sarel
Elotf, President Kruger's grandson,
and part of his commando were taken
and fifty Boers killed.
The Canadian artillery eontigent is
now reported to have reached Bulawayo
on May 2nd. The distance from Bulawayo to Mafeking is 4110 miles. As the
railway is open all tlie way to Pitsani
the Canadians may yet take part in the
relief.
ii!��� neraI French,scouting northward,
found tlie Boers in stroiig force at
Rhomoster Spruit, 30   miles north   of
Kroonstadt,   Generals Botha,  Delaroy
and Oliver, with artillery, were holding
the position. President Steyn has
gone to Pretoria.
A ^despatch from Cape Town says
that proclamations are being printed
there to be published on the Queen's
Birthday annexing the Orange Free
State. One of Preideut Steyn's brothers, who is a prisoner of lleueral Brabant, says the Free State will accept
annexation. Those who took up arms
the second time had to do so ou threats
of instant death If they refused.
Five hundred rifles have been surrendered at KroonBladt in excess of
the number of Boers who have takon
the oath of allegiance. Lord Roberts
has directed the British commanders to receive all comers in good spirit aud to issue to them passes to their
farms.
Lord Methuen is said to be advancing along the soutli bank of the Vaal.
Colonel Kekewich is with bim. The
loop railway laid across the Vaal is fast
near ing conipletson. The probability
is that lleueral Hunter took back n
brigade to Fourteen Streams owing to
the scarcity of transports, lleueral
Bundle has captured 10,000 bags of
corn. He is marching slowly through
a district which is alive with cattle,
sheep and horses. At Johannesburg
the women are forming a police corps
so as to release every man for fighting purposes,
Durban reports the receipt of_a telegram fiiuii l.oiei.zi) Mnrijiifv. saying
that the plot to blow up the British
cruiser Forte was discovered and in
consequence the war sliip steams out
seven miles nightly. President Steyn
saw the fight at Zand river. Tbe impression he got there was that his
Burghers could not face Lord Roberts
iu a pitched battle and thie resulted in
his decision to evacuate the Kroon-
etndt workB without a battle.
The Standard says: "We learn that
the first great stand by the Federals
will be on the ridges near Johannesburg. This position has been strongly
entrenched and the Burghers believe
they can hold it for some time, if
driven from that point, part of the
force will be thrown into Pretoria to
withstand a selge, while the main body
will retreat to the tTydenbnrg district
with the intention of keeping up a
guerilla warfare from that region.
They believe they can postpone indefinitely n pacification of the country,"
Thie view is partly supported by a
despatch to the Times from Lorenzo
Marque/,, which says there is general
talk in Pretoria that Presidont Kruger
iB contemplating au immediate departure from the Oapital, There seeniB
no lo |gor any doubt of the intention
of the Transvaal to transfer the seat of
government to the Leydenburg district an l to endeavor to make a
final stand there. The Raad is reported
to have endorsed the proposal.
The Times Bays that a number of
Transvaal nlllcials are preparing for
flight and that Statu Secretary Reita
has selected South Amorica as hie
fnture home,
Toronto, May 17.���Colonel Otter, in
a letter to tbe acting president of tbe
ladies branch of the Red Oross Society
under date of Bloemfontein, Maroh

Kaslo, B. C, May 17.���"Tire election is ours. No matter how many
votes the Martin candidate takes away

He attended the Smith Curlis meeting

up that Montana could not produoe ths

before a large audicuce the bet was decided in favor of Canada, as no one was
thrown, though the homes were oertainly
great so far as buckiug was concerned,

cowboy but a Canadian,

Time is creeping on, and election
day will be upon us before we know
it.    It is probable  that many of us
have  not  yet made a choice of the
three candidates who are presenting
themselves.     The   hesitating  ones
are still consideiing, in doubt whom
to favor.    There should be no difficulty in arriving at a decision.    We
are not a farming population in this
part of the Province, and never can
be.     There     will     be    lumbering
enough   to  supply  onr wants, and
little  more.    Our   fishing  will   remain a matter  of recieation,    We
cannot grow up into  a strong, rich
community on any of these, or on
all of them.    The foundation of our
prosperity is mining.    As  the mining    industry    prospers,    so   shall
business generally.    If the  mining
industry does  not prosper, we  are
wasting time   in  staying  here.    It
cannot prosper without capital, for
capital   is  necessary to its development.    The one great need, therefore, of Southern  British Columbia
is mining capital.    According as we
can   attract   that the   country   will
. prosper and we will all prosper with
h.    But  capital  will  not come as
long as our political   conditions are
unsettled, and men arc in charge of
affairs  who   cannot   inspire   confidence.    We  must  get  rid of   the
adventurers, the   plungers, and  the
agitators.      The    Nelson    elector,
and above all the  Nelson   business
man, has  only  to   study the   three
candidates and decide which one of
them, if elected, would do  most to
steady   the   situation  and   restore
conditions   that  would  give  confidence   to   investors.     Kor reasons
already stated, The  Miner   believes
that  Mr. Fletcher', election  would
be   the   safest   guarantee  of   this.
He represents  the element that has
most to gain  by sober, stable government, and that will   do   most to
secure it.     All who are still hesitating should not only make him their
choice  without  further  delay,   but
should also make themselves active
in doing everything possible to promote his election.
"The election of such men as
Governor Mackintosh," says The
Rossland Miner, "and the rejection
of Hon. Joseph Martin and his followers would go a long way towards
restoring confidence to a Province
which is now, to a certain extent,
discredited." Yes, and the election
of Mr, Houston in Nelson would
counteract all the good that would
result from the election of one
Mackintosh. We not only require
to reject Mr. Martin and bis followers, but all other disturbers of the
political peace. We would be as far
from a restoration of confidence
with the Cotton party in power as
we would with Mr. Martin. The
country needs a substantial majority of Mackintoshes whether their
names be Fletcher or Keen or Taylor or Fernie or what not. Give us
these, and soon the discredit under
which the Province is now suffering
will lift as the mist in the morning.

majority of the citizens are going to
Kaslo, some are going to Silvsrton aud
n few to Rosslaud. They are all bound

Hon. Smith-Curtis was in Nelson
yesterday on his way tn Kaslo where
ho will attend the Martin convention
to he held this evening. He was not
as cheerful ns upon the occasion of bis
last visit but said he was quite conli-
deut of election. He had heard nothing from Slocan, he said as, to who
would probably bo the nominee,
The interest in the South African war,
which after the sin render of Cronje
and other incidents about Unit time,
seemed to abate, has increased again
to the ex'ent that the bulletins iu The
Miner window throughout the day are
eagealy read hy hundreds of people.
All are now looking for definite news
from Mafeking and this mny bo expected now at nny time.

feet long, will be built to carry the ore
to the foot of the mountain, whence it

But the Houston man again declined.
The first four nights of next week,
the only genniiio and perfect moving

best moving ones iu the world, and
psople should crowd the Opera House
on Monday next and   following nights.

his opiniou iu Ihe matter of the writ of
prohibition, ti prevent Collector Wright
from plBOing ou tho voters'lint the names
over which there bus born so much contention, said iu effect that Collector
Wright noted out of Iub jurisdiction iu
throwing out tho objection-', ns has been
already reported. lie holds that Mi.
Wright did not not within the power
granted the Court of Revision hy the
Statute. Also Hint all persons whose
names were objected to should have been
given 30 days' notice. Mr. Jnsiice
Drake in summing up grants the writ
of prohibition iu the following terms:
" I think this is n proper case for the exercise of tho power of the Court and 1 direct a writ of prohibition to he Issued to

objections hnvo been properly considered. As the parties mny wish to appeal I
give leave to set the appeal down for
hearing ot tbe Court to be held at Vancouver on the 28th of May."
The case of McMillan vs. Sandilands
and John W. Peek & Co , of Winnipeg,
the third parties ordered by Ihe Court,
came up before Mr. Justice Drake yesterday. The ense arose out of the assignment of Crawford & McMillan, of
Hando.,, who assigned for the benefit of
their creditors to E. M. Saudilandl. He
in turn bonded over tbe estate to T.
Leo Peel, who handed it over to Peck
&Co. The plaintiff oliiinied nn account
of the dealings of the defendant .Snndi-
InndB and payment of any surplus, The

The Minneapolis Tribune of Saturday, May VJ, lias the following dispatch fiom Kaslo: "The biggest mill-
Ing'deal that has been negotiated in
the Slocan for many years has just
been put, through. Prauk Wood, superintendent of the Last Chance, on
Noble five mountain, has disposed of
his interest in the mine for 8100,000,
The purchaser is Dr. Hendricks of
Minneapolis, one of the biggest shareholders. Whether Dr. llendrioks lias
bought fir himself or others is not
known. He went up to the mine early
in the week, uccoiiipnnicd by some capitalists from Seattle and Milwaukee
and it may be that he has bought for
them. Eighteen months ago, and he-
fore the eight hour trouble, Frank
Woods refused $05,00(1 for his one tenth
interest. On the liasis of this sale the
Last Chance Is today worth $1,000,000,
ami it is Improving daily.
The sale of goods nt the Customs
House yesterday attracted a fairly
large crowd and Charles Waterman
succeeded in getting some spirited bidding from those present. The assortment of goods offered was a vaiied
one and some people secured some bargains at low prices. A number of
Zithers sold for $1.60 apiece aud about
two dozen large picture frames brought
a dollar each. An English made rifle,
invoiced at ��25. sold for $211. A large
package containing a fine edition of
Shakespeare brought $11). Several
amusing InoldontB occurred during the
sale, one when a valise, after spirited
hiddii'gsold for$t>, was found to contain an assortment of ladies' underwear. One man paid 82 for a straw
hat about six years old. One of Nelson's
prominent barristers bid live cents for
nn antiquated bed spring and to his
surprise it was knocked down to him
by the auctioneer. He was not seen
to take it away however. Altogether
good prices were realized at the sale.

��� afflajj -..  t&Mjtf&Sk NELSON DAILY MINER. FRIDAY, MAY 18,   ii/'O.
To the Electors of the Nelson
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District :
Gatm.EMi.N- As tlie nominee of tbe
Conservative party I beg to oiler myself
as a candidate at the coming general
eleotiou to represent you iu tbe Legislative AsseiJubly of tbisl'roviuoe.
Tbe timo has arrived when all parties
are fully idive to tbe fact that tbe future
welfare ot our Province deuuiuds a
souud, fair and honest business administration aud that any great popular
Party must appeal to other and
higher coneideratiouB thiiu those of individual fear of Iobs, or hope of gain.
I consider it tbe duty of every member
elected, to be a Provlnoialist to tbo extent of tbe best interests of the Proviuoe
first, last aud always, and to support all
good legislatiou with Unit object iu view
In asking you for your support, I will
state that 1 am opposed to hasty legislation of any kind, but particularly witb
respect to our Miniug Laws, as tending
tojeopardize business interests and to divert capital: for instance, twice tbe Legislature has passed Alieu Exclusion
Laws and they are now for the second
time seeking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief.and damage.
Witb regard to tbe Eight-Hour Law, I
am opposed to any change in the law
as it now standi"
To the Electors of Nelson
Riding, West Kontenay
District:
Gentlemen. ���In response to numerously signed requisitions asking me to
be a candidate for the Provincial Legislature at the forthcoming election, 1
have consented to enter the ooutest as
an Independent Liberal.
I have the honor, therefore to solicit
your votes and influence, and if elent-
ed I shall do my utmost to secure for
tho Province honest, economical and
progressive government.
A brief outline of some of the principles which I think should he embodied iu the Legislative Acts is giveu
below.
I hnvo the honor to be gentlemen,
Your obedient seryant,
G. A. B. HALL.
1. The prinoiple of eight hours constituting a legal day's work should be
recognized aud striotly enforced.
. 2. Steps should immediately Ihe
taken through the proper obiinnels to
prevent tha immigration into this
oountry of Chinese and Japanese labor,
ers.
3. Two dollars and a half per day
should bo tbe minimum wage of unskilled labor throughout the Proviuce
ou all government works.
4. A fair wage bill should be introduced requiring the payment of stand-
aid wages on all works to which the
Provinoe contributes subsidies or aid
in any form.
5.    The   establishment  of    a   labor
bureau under the direction of a Minis-
Shorter hours for all classes of labor , ter of tl]e rjrown, whose duty it shall
is no new idea, but in my opinion the
principle should be such as to appeal to
all Sections of tbe Community ns being
not only a necessity nnd beneficial to all,
but iu keeping with the general advancement of our civilization.
I would advocate tbe amendment nnd
strict enforcement of the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, so as to more effectually proteot the lives of workmen
With regard to the Mineral Act: I
would endeavor to hnve certain sections
more clearly defiued, for tbe purpose of
avoiding litigation ; nnd witb regard to
oo-ownership, to introduce nu inexpensive aud speedy mode of making n co-
owner bear his share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am in favor of nn amendment to our
Sohool Laws so as to give Cities the control of the Schools iu their midst.
A fair Redistribution Act should be
passed as soon ns possible.
I would advooate tbe bringing into
force of tbe Tori-en's Aot, provided it i-
made optional ; as tbe cost iu a great
many cases will be excessive aud out of
all proportion to any benefit to be derived,
I would urge the speedy construction
of a Court House in Nelsou, equal to
the requirements of this district,
I would strongly advocnte inoreased
Grants for llonds, Trails and Bridges
wherever such will upbuild aud develope
our Province, more especially in the
Mining Districts, nnd nil such expenditure to be placed in capable nnd experienced bands to be dealt with in a
systematic way.
Our undeveloped nntural resources
should receive more attention, and be
more widely advertised in order to attract
capital.
With regard to oheap foreign labor I
believe, where the romedy is BO Imperial
matter, in viewof tho Bland our Province
be among other things, to colleot Inhor
statistics, and to act as a mediator
between employers and workmen in
all cases of actual or threatened
strikos with power to call and ex-
amino witnesses and compel disclosure
of all material faots iu connection
with suoh disputes.
(I. I believe that trunk roads should
be built and maintained by the government and encouragement given to
miners .to extend these roads. Such
work should be directed by competent
goverument engineers. Where trails
are required to single or small groups
of claims the cost of suoh trails, if
built by the claim owners ou the approval and under direction of a government iupsector or engineer, shall
apply as  assessment  upon the claims.
7. Government ownership of all
telegraph systems and railways where
practicable by construction or purchase.
8. The establishment of teohnical
schools for metallflerous miners iu
oonuootion with smelters at differout
poiuts in the Province.
9. To draw the attention of capitalists and investors to British Columbia
as a desirable centre for profitable
mining operations by suitable advertisement and by the appointment of
a special agent at London and elsewhere whose' services shall be freo and
equally available for all owners of
British Columbia properties.
in. To enoonrage the establishment
at suitable points in British Columbia of
Steel nnd iron works.
Shipbuilding yards.
Additional   smeltors and
(a)
(b)
(o)
fineries.
II. The retaining of the resources
of tbe Proviuce aB an asset for the
benefit of tbe people, and taking effective niensnres to prevent the alionation
of the public domain, except to actual
settlers or for bona fide businesa or industrial purposes, thus putting nn end
to tho practice of speculating in the
same.
13. The taking of active measures
for the systematic explorution of the
Proviuce, including a government sur-
and Country has taken iu tbo present war vey n( tne provinoe by sections and
giving both lives and money, the desired the preparation of accurate and cheap
end oan be gained if properly sought,! ml,P�� '" accordance with such survey,
without bringing about a serions misunderstanding witb the Dominion Government and entailing deplorable ngitution
as we require peace aud prosperity iu our
midst.
I am opposed to any clique or faction
of politicnl ngitators whose principal nim
is to embarriiHH and retnrd the business
of the Proviuce for purely personal advancement.
I strongly condemn the notions of the
Lieut.-Governor as being nu invasion of
the prinoiple of responsible government
and a misuse of his power under our
Constitution.
Yours respectfully,
HUNK FLETCHER.
Nelson, Uth May, 1800.
13. Tho interests of the Province
can ho best served by a permanent
civil service, appointments to which
should be made by reason of merit nnd
not of political influence.
14. All unoccupied Innds in tbo Province should be open to bona fide settlers at fair pricos wbioh shnll be de-
oided npon by a government land ngent
or valuator, and better tueilities shonld
be given for acquiring small areas for
establishment of market garrtons and
homestoads.
15. Whore mineral claims are held
by joint owners and where one or
more of sunh owners refuses to contribute towards tho annual assessment
work, provision should bo made in the
Mineral Act for the sale of the interest of snch delinquent owner.
1(1. Tbe abolition of the deposit by
candidates for tbe legislature.
Redistribution of the constituencies
on an eqnitable basis.
