PINAFORE
Grand Success Achieved by
Local Amateurs Last
Night.
A Large Audience Enthusiastically Receive Performance.
Every loyal citizen of Nolson always
knew that he had many things to boast
of in connection with hiB adopted town
but it was not until last night that he
know that among the number was the
fact tlict Nelson is capable of producing amateur opera in aa oreditablo a
manner as can any city in Canada.
Wtion the (inostion of nmatenr opera
hero was mooted some time ago the
most enthusiastic did not drcxro thai
snch a snosess c.uuld be achieved as
that of last night whan Gilbert and
Sullivan's "Pinafore" took n fnll
house by Htorni. Two mouths nno the
work of preparing Bixty amateurs was
cimiieuced. In Vancouver���if a comparison is permissible��� four mouths
olnpaod between the time tho conductor
rained his baton in tho preparatory
stage of Pinafore and again raised it
when the Unbilled product appealed to
the public for approval. There were a
few people who saw both performances
and the opinion of those were that last
niglit's performance was the superior,
Tlie Minor repeatedly anticipated an
exceedingly warm reception for Pinafore and the anticipations were more
than fulfilled. There was not a hitch
during the evening and before Ihe or
cbestra bud completed tho lirst bar of
the overture everyone prepared himself
for a couple of hnuis of thorongh enjoyment. The orchestra was splendidly trained and was one of the leading features of the performance���if
there wore in y leading feature in such
an oven and smooth production. The
chorus of forty voioes was balanced lo
perfection. They were not slow in nt-
taok and their business was attended
to in a manner that the rehearsals did
not altogether give promise of. The
powerful full and rich tonos met with
the hearty applause of the nodiouoo
that was one of the most critionl that
ever gathered in Nelson. Cheers were
resorted to to demonstrate the pleasure
with which the final ohorus of the
lirst act was received and it waB unfortunate that Borne understanding had
not beeu made to give the audienoe
the encore it so enthusiastically de-
mnndad as the curtain went down.
The stage setting could not well
have been surpassed. The quarterdeck
of a warship is not the most beantiful
thing in the world, but Mr. A. Hal-
ton, who reproduced on canvas that
part of H. M. S. Pinafore with tbe sen
to starboard and Portsmouth to port,
<lid so in a very realistio manner. A
cap-Man, life bnoys, ropes, ship's lights
and other paraphernalia of a well regulated ship, added greatly to the artist's work. Constant life in the background while tbe principals were engaged at tho footlights was n telling
feature. The costumes were elaborate
and correct,completing the finest stage
pieure ever given in the interior.
Comparisons among the principals
are simply out of tbe question. Eaoh
one did his or her pBrt, if not perfoot-
ly, at loast an nearly so aa amateurs
anywhere do. and thit was all that
conld be oxpected of thorn and consequently of any other amatonrs. Certainly no professionals ever appeared
in Nelson who did half so well. Mrs.
". A. Macdonald, the prima donna.
was a prima donna iu every seuse of
the word. Nelson people hnve heard
her several times on the concert nlat-
form but it was a revelation to hear
her in an operatic role. Perhaps it
was her very clever acting that made
one think so, but it appeared as if her
voioe never Bounded so sweetly. She
looked bo charming that no oue oould
blame Ralph Kaokstraw, no matter
now humble a seaman, for falling in
lovo with her. Hor acting wna graceful and well finished, her singing
admirable and her costumes tnsty and
becoming to an extreme. Sho was nn
ideal Josephine.
Mr. John Loohore, bb Ralph Rack-
straw,_,made a roost decided hit. His
neb pnre lyric tenor voice was more
Ihaii a surprise to tho andiencn and
nelson should be proud of possessing
��uch an artist. George Williamson waa
extremely well ohosen as Captain Corcoran. He has a splendid stnge presence and a sweet voioe and mot with
i'i \nst'lnt approval of the audience,
which demonstrated Ub approval of him
py generous aoplause on his overy appearance. His singing of the "Pair
"oon was one of the gems of the
evening.     Mr.   Fieeman-Uke   ooull
uot have heen improved upon as Sir
Joseph Porter. He was certainly decidedly funny und the rich humor of
bis part, capahlly portrayed, brought
forth peals of laughter.
Mrs. Goepel nude a charming
"Swoet Little lii.ttorcup" aud her
noting and Binging were pleasing.
Mr. O. Ii. Winter, as"Diok Dead-
eye," bandied his part as tho part
should he handled and added greatly
to tho perfection of the produoion.
Mra. Whulley's noting and appearance made hor small part as Hebe all
that oould be desired.
Mr. JameB Lawrenoe looked the
"Boatswain" to perfeotion and his
solo, "He's An Englishman," was one
of the hits of the evening.
Last but by no means least���exoept,
of conree, as regarding size���was little
Miss Quinlau as tbe Middle. She was
always in evidence nnd her danoing of
the hornpipe met with one of tha most
enthusiastic recalls of  the evening.
To Herr Steiner, the oonduotor, only
the warmest praise can be given. The
perfectiou of the mnsloal portion of
Ihe production was entirely due to his
untiring and faithful efforts, and Nelson owes to him a debt of gratitude
for uneurthing and bo capably training
audi a very oreditable array of talent.
I No more mugnifloent stage picture
was ever presented in Nelson than the
closing tableau last night. Everyone
who took part in the production was
on the stage, the steps leading to the
bridge held Mrs. Macdonald and Mr.
Lochore, and on the bridge were others. Mrs. K C. Beaton representing
Britannin with a shield and tridon,
occupied the center of tbe stage. As
the grand chorus, led by Mr. Luther
Lennox, raug out the strains of "Rule
Hritnnnia" tlu large nudience rose to
its feet and thoroughly enjoyed tho
music and the picture. The National
Anthem brought to a close tbe finest
production of amateur opera ever
given in the Province.
To those who managed the production, those whose work does not bring
prnminentoe behind the footlights
where the public has an opportunity of
showing its appreciation by applause,
belongs even moro than a passing nonce. But for them Pinafore would
never have been pieBented lint night.
Chief among them Is Mr. Melville
Parry, secretary and manager, whose
work has been largely instrumental ln
achieving such a success. Prom early
morning until late at night for weeks
be has given his time generously and
uot the smallest detail was overlooked
by him. To him, more than to anyone
man, belongs the chief credit. Tbe
active manual labor be did was a large
Item in itself. Mr. H, Haines, the
treasurer, was a most eliloient olllcial
and he aud Mr. Parry made a team of
workers hard to bent. Mr. J. C. T.
Orofts, as stage manager, well deserves
his share of the praise.
There was no crying babies, no large
linls, no distubing elements in the
house, and it was the only audieuoe
that has yet been seated in the Opera
House without a single mistake having
beon made hy tbe ushers.
Tliis nfternoon there will be a full
production at 2 :80,for whioh the prices
are 150 cents for adults and 2fi oents for
children. Tomorrow night's perfoiin-
ance will be the last.
HAMILTON AT THABA N'CHU.
By Admirable Strategy He Drives the
Boers Form a Strong Position.
London, April 20.���Tho War Ollloe
publishes tbe following despatch from
Lord Roberts, dated Bloemfontein,
April 2(1:
"General Hamilton j-esterday drove
tbe enemy from a strong position at
Israelpoort by a well oonoeived turning movement, whioh was admirably
ourried out by General Ridley, com-
mauder of the Second Mounted Infantry brigade aud Genernl Smltb-
Dorien, emmanding tbe Eighteenth
brigade. Theso troops are advancing
now towards Thnba N'chu. Our losses
nre Blight; only one is reported, Major
Marshall, Grabamstown Mounted
Rifles, heing severely wounded in the
shoulder."
London, April 27.���Tho Bloemfontein coirespondent of the Daily Telegraph, under  Wednesday's date, Bays:
"Our iufantiy entered the high
mountainous plntean of Thaba N'chu
today without opposition. As this Ib
a natural fortress this must mean that
the Boers have praotioally thrown up
tbo Bponge iu this section of the oonntry. If the force presses on to Ladybrand, the whole conntry south of
thero and in line with Bloemfontein
will be completely in our hands. "
ALMOST WIPED OUT
Disastrous Fire at Hull, Que.-Twenty Millions Loss.-Twelve Thousand People are Homeless.--City
in Ruins.
(SPECIALS TO THE MIXER.)
London, April 27.��� 5 a. m.��� Israel-
poort, wbich is lot marked on the
mans, lies between Saunas Post and
Thaba N'chu. General Hamilton has
probably by this time arrived at
Thaba N'chu, ns he is UBing his utmost endeavors to out off tbe Boers
who are retreating from Dewetsdorp.
Tho Boer forces at Thaba N'chu are
not uulikoly to make a staud to oover
the escape of the convoys from the
southwnrd.
Port Arthur, Ont., April 2(1.���Dan
McGillivrny, of Vnnoouver, has been
awarded tho contract for building the
ore dock nt Miohipioton for the Algo-
mii Central Railway. The dock will
cost $200,000.
Ottawa, Ont., April 211.-The oity of
Hull has been burning since noon today, and all that remains at the present time of writing, 7:30 p. m., is a
small corner of the east end of the oity
and before long it, too, will be in
ashes. There are a few housas standing
in the suburbs of the transpontine
city. Hnll has a population of about
12,000 people and more than half of
tbe oity ia homeless tonight. The entire business part of the city,including
tbe Court House, Post Ollice and pnblio buildings and newspaper offices, is
in one mass of ruins. The population
is almost entirely oomposed of people
who work in the mills or who derive
their  business from these workers.
The fire crossed to Ottawa in the
afternoon, got a start among the lumber piles on tbe banks of tbe river and
extended to tbe lumber yards. That
part of Ottawa known as Cbnodiere
Flats, surrounding the Canadian Paoiflo Railway depot, where the lumber
mills are all located, is fire swept.
Tbe only building standing in tbe
whole area is tbat of the Ottawa Carbide Factory, whicb is newly erected
and fire proof. From tbe flats the Are
extended across Richmond Road on to
Roohesterville as far as tbe experimental farm. In a westerly direction the
fire took in Hintonburg and Median-
iosville, so that on the Ottawa aide of
tbe river tbere is n '^rger area oovered
by fire than on the Hnll side. It Is estimated tbat at tbe present time the
numb t of people homeless is not lees
than 12,000, and is between 12,coo nnd
16,000.
The Government have given the
Drill Hall and the city's large exhibition building to accommodate tbe unfortunate sufferers. All institutions
in the oity who have any accommodation at all have lent a band to aid the
distressed. The only industry left in
Hnll is thoUilinoiirand Houston Lumber Mills in the sxtreme end of the
oity limits near Uatinean Point, and
it is still in danger. The large Roman
Catholic Cathedral is standing bnt tbe
flames are surrounding it. Nothing oan
be done to stop the fire. It Iuih simply
got to burn itself out to the water's
edge. The Hnll Lnmber Company's
mills and tbe extensive works of E. B.
Eddy's matoh and paper factories as
well as his palatial residence are all
In ruins. The Inter-Provinoial bridge
wbioh connects the oity of O.tava
with Hull, is gone.
Coming to tbe Ottawa side of the
river tbe loss is still greater. For instance the Hronsoii and Western Lnmber Co.'e mill, J. R. Booth's lnmber
mill, McKay Milling Co., Ottawa
Eleotrio Railway power house. Martin
and Warnook's mills, Viotoria Foundry, Ottawn Saw Works and tbe Ottawn Specialty Co s planing mills and
several other industries all of which
are in ashes. Tbere are also fine residences inoluded in tbis area that aro
burned. That of J. R. Booth was esti-
mnted at |100,000. Tbon there is tbe
residenoe of bis son in law, A. W.
Fleck, und close beside the the Hon.
George Former resided in tbe same
locality. Levi Cromwell, manager for
Mi. Bronson, and Mr. Pams of tbe
Parris Mills, had two beautiful bouses
ont of wbioh tbey were; not able to
take anything, bo quickly did tho
flumes extend to them.
As soon as the members of the Government saw tbat the fire was to be n
disastrous ono tbe Aoting Minister of
Public Works telegraphed Montreal,
Peterboro and Brockville im fire nppli-
inoes and nil asssistanoe that conld be
sent. But theBe, although thoy arrived
speedily, were of no avail; nothing
oould stop the ravages of fire whicb
leaped over whole blocks and out in
all directions.
Tbe Canadian Paoiflo Railway depot,
wblob   is  on  Ohaudiere   Flats,   was
among the first buildings to'go, a�� it
was a wooden structure. The large cliff
which extends fiom Ottawa River
baok of OhrlBt Church and St. Jean
Baptiste Church on to Roohesterville
was tbe only thing which prevented
the whole city of Ottawa from becoming a prey to the Are. Shortly after
noon the wind, which was blowing
previously in n northwestern direction
chsnged to the southeast ntd in thiB
way what remained of Ottawa was
saved.
It is almost idle to talk of losses
while the fire is yet burning, when a
change of wind wonld certainly sweep
the city, but a moderate calculation
would be somewhere between fifteen
and twenty milliun dollars. The Government bad tho militia called out aud
adjourned the House nf Commons until Tuesday on acconut of the disas-
tious conflagration.
Ottawa, Out., April 27.-2 n. m.���
Your correspondent has just returned
fie :u a trip over the Are area. Iu Hull
tbe fire is about burned ont. The
business portion is gone and half of tbe
residences. The Rouinu Catholic Cathedral has been saved and Eddy's
sulphite works. It took hard work to
save tbe sulphite works but it wis
done. The only means of communication between Hull and Ottawa is by
boat. Giluionr nud Hugbsou's mills
nro also standing. From two o'olook
the only wnter that could be had in
Hull was from the river. Chief Ben-
oit, of Hull's fire department, was injured and taken to the general hospital
in Ottawa.
Tbe Are originated through a dirty
chimney, und the high wind, with
clouds of dust nnd snnd flonting in nil
directions, caused the flames to soon
spread.
Coming to tbe Ottawa side of the
river, that poition of tbe oity east of
Division Street, tbe old boundary line
of the city, before Roohesterville was
annexed, wns almost entirely burned
down. Here and there a building remains.
The village of Hintonburg, still further east, in olose pioximity to tbe
city, has not all beon destroyed. Tbe
greater part  remains.
Meohanicsville, whioh was reported
entirely swept away, still remains.
Tbe fire at midnight was largely oon-
linod to a pnrt of Rnohestcrville lying
near the St. Louis dam in tbe southeastern part of tbe oity. Unless a
heavy wind rises tbe remainder of tbe
city is safe. Buoket brigades of the
military and Montreal firemen witb
their engine did yeoman service at
thiB point. In addition to the losses
mentioned there is that of the Export
Lumber CVimpany,whose establishment
was at Chaudiere.
Tbe casualties so far as reported are
ns follows: Miss Cook, an oltl woman
who lived on Wellington Street, near
tho French Church, who was burned
in bet bouse to n crisp. An unknown
mnn wns found dead on the C. P. R.
traok. James Navau, Queen Street
West, is reported to be fatally injured
and some pieces of timber fell on
James Merryfield, who was taken to
tbe hospital.
The Government is supplying blankets aud doing all that it oan for tbe
sufferers.
The Ottawa Insurance Oompany, a
new institution, will be a heavy loser
by the Are. All the Canadinn companies and some English and American companies nre Interested. A prnm-
inciil lumberman, who is not interested himself, placed the losses for the
lumber piles alone at from four to Ave
million dollars. This is thought to be
a low estimate, aa the Export Lumber
Company alone lost nearly one million
dollars.
A. T Wood, M. P., for Hamilton, n
prominent bnsiness man, was present
at the time, and considered that when
all the losses were made up they would
be nearly thirty million dollars.
At midnight the lire was comletoly
under control.
Toronto, April 2(I.-Mr. J. H. Bal-
mer, with Ave South African native
boys, tiged from eight to II, two Bnsu-

F. Watt Hewson nnd H. Norton
Beckett, of Loudon, England, nre in
the oity. They will visit various furniture and other wood firms iu Canada with a view of opening up [he export trnde with the United Kingdom
through their new warehouses iu London. They speak hopefully for the
development of this trade if the Canadinn makers will adopt speoial designs
submitted them to suit tbe English
taste.
The sixth annual horso show opened

Winnipeg, Man., April 2(1.���Hon. J.
A. Davidson left for St. Paul todny.
It is understood that the Provincial
Trensurer left on railway business, aud
that the present trip is taken as n result oi the trip recently token by the
Pruiuier and himself. Mr. Davidson
was in consultation with Mr. J. S.
Ewart, Q. C, before his departure. In
connection with the Treasurer's departure for St, Paul, tbo followiug
from the Tribune is interesting :
"From various snnrcos it has leaked
out that tho next important move in
the railway matter, to be mado by the
local government, will bo Iho taxing
of railways in this Province. This
was the main subjeot of the discussion
in the Conservative c uous Inst night
and it is nndorstood it was reoeived
with unanimous approval. Premier
Macdonald whon spoken to this morning was asked if this was the osuse.
He laughed and said mat caucus meetings were private, hut did not deny
the fact.
"Hon. O. H. Campbell was nlso
seen and referred the lerierlor tn the
Hon. Mr. Davidson, and tho lattei
when qnestioneri on the subject admit
ted that tho taxing nf railways was
on tho tapis. 'The slate ol Minnesota,' said Mr. Davidson, 'makes a
million and a half dollars nut of in
railway tax of in, per cent on gross
earnings, and I do not think that n
similar move on onr part wonld be
disapproved of by the people of Manitoba ' "

(SPECIAL TU THE MINEH.)
Winnipeg, Man., April 2(1��� The
Wiunipeg Manitoba General Hospital
was placed nnder close quarantine today as the result of the outbreak of
smallpox among the nurses. It is
thought that the disease was brought
to the institution by a man named
Hector M. Finlaysou, an Australian.
Finluyson was on his way to England
from Japan and oooupied a lower
berth on a sleeper between Vunconver
and Winnipeg. He complained of being sick befoio reaching Brandon and
Dr. Cbown, uf this oity, who bad been
lo Brandon on professional business
and was returning to Winnipeg on the
same train, was asked if he wonld see
the man aud did so. He found bn was
quite sick, although thero was nothing
to indicate what ailed him, no rash or
any symptoms to show, even tha experienced eye of n doctor, tho cause of
tbe trouble. Hn told Finlaysou hu
was not At to travel nnd had better lay
olf at Winnipeg and go the hospital
and the sick man determined to do so.
Accordingly, wbeu Winnipeg was
reached, Finlaysou got into a cab and
was driven to the hospital, where
thirty-six hours lntor he died. Tbo
oase is uow known to have heen one of
maligaut smallpox, which he probably
contracted on tho boat ooming from
Japan. He ^n>is interred in tbe ordinary way by oue of the undertakers,
so it will be seen thnt betweon the
cah and those ooming into contact
witb Finluyson and tbe undertaker
and bis assistants, and perhaps in oue
or two other ways, there is uo telling
how many peisons may havo been exposed to tbo germs. The uuree wbo
attended him at the hospital went
down with th.< disease yesterday. The
two nurses who are in the grip of tho
diseaso ore Nurse Sanfoid, of Virdeu,
and Nurse Duncan, of Motdeu.
Premier Macdonald left for the east
today. He snid that he would visit
Montreal and wonld bo absent one
week on Government business. He is
accompanied   by Mrs. Macdonald.
Mrs. Peebles, tbe wife of Lieutenant
Colonel Peebles, of Winnipeg, is dead,

that he oan carry the Province. He is
too experienced n campaigner to so
grossly mistake the politioal signs, ns
they exhibit themselves throughout his
wanderings. However desperate tbe
fight he make, he will fnll very far
short of a victory. Beyoud the certnin
failure of his Government to oblnin a
majority, be would be a bold mnn wbo
would V3ntnre nny definite prediction
of the result of the eleotion, with only
present developments to guide bim.
The situation haB not yet taken shape,
it is true, but just now it ie herd to
see whnt shnpe it can takn that will
not be involved with perplexities.
Mr. Cotton refuses to tnke The Miner's advioe, and go into Federal politics, and Instead is busying himself in
potting np candidates who will support
him as leader of what he culls the Pro
vincial party. No doubt n nnmber of
them will be elected.
The effort of certain Oonservntive
leaders to foroe party lines nil over tbe
Province is only partially snooessfnl.
In many of the constituencies there
will be a union of Conservatives and
Liberals wbo bnve no fnith in Mr.
Martin and who distrust Mr. Cotton.
In others Conservatives will run ns
Conservatives. The oue positive result
so far nebeived -fry Mr. Martin is to
discourage end, to a large extent, disorganise tbe Liberal pnrty. Few Liberals, we suspect, will run ns Liberals, for tbe reason tbat tbey have
nothing definite to run for. All of
that olass, and all Conservatives, mny
be counted ns ngninst both Mr, Mnrtin
and Mr. Cotton. We think there is no
doubt these will be the most numerously represented in tbe next Legislature, bnt whether in snffloient numbers to give them control of it we
sball enly know when the returns are
all In.
Tbe outlook is not nny too nssuring.
A gratifying feature of it is that the
Province will rid itself of Mr. Martin,
hut even then there is a prospeot that
we shnll be back to the old conditions,
and that stable government will still
be a thing of the future. It is deeply
to be regretted that the country cannot
count with confidence on something
better than tbis. A coalition of rival
and jealous elements will not answer
the present necessities of the Province.
The Martin party mny oome bnck with
a representation of eight; the Cotton
party mny possibly number twelve;
there will be left to tbe pnrty which,
for want of a better name, we sball
call Conservative, the remaining
eighteen. A Martin-Cotton coalition
is as impossible as a mixing of oil and
water. A oonlition of the Cotton party
and the Conservntive might give relief, but it will be better if the electors take tbe matter into their own
hands and nrrangc it iu advance. The
party in the next Legislature that
would give most promise of stability
and oonfldence in the administration nf
our publio nffnirs is tho pnrty that iB
opposed to both perBonal losders, Mr.
Martin and Mr. Cotton, and if the
electors aro wise in their own intorests
they will give tbnt pnrty a majority
over both.
Mr. Martin's declaration that if given
n majority he would re-enact all legislation aimed at tbe Chinese and Japanese as often as it was disallowed, is
regarded by The Victoria Times as
having too much of tbe ring of the
political bravo to mnke irncb ot an
impresBion. The Times must not be
too severe on Mr. Mnrtin. In the old
days of the Farmers' Union in Manitoba he nsed to go about uttering similar
threats in regard to disallowed legislation in that Province, and the gentlemen with stravs in thoir whiskers
bniled bim ns a Heaven-sent lender.
Mr. Martin merely feils to tnke note
of the tact thnt thero is a vast difference between the emotional make-up
of a Mauitoban and of a British Columbia.

Interviewed at Winnipeg on bis way

positively that be had no intention of
entering Provincial politics. At Vancouver bo is very mysterious nnd will
sny neiiber yes nor no; but iu tbe

Aanaimo. and there is fnlr giound for
believing thnt it is done witb bis
knowledge and consent. His father is
on trial witb Mr. Martin, and realising tbe extreme gravity ol the situs-

CONVENTION
Local Liberal-Conservatives will Hold
a Meeting In Nolson  Next
Monday Night.
Plenty or Good Material to Select rrom.
Candidate Will Receive support
of Martin's Opponents.
Uu Monday night next, in Fraternity
Hall, "IB Liberal-Conservatives of
MelSOD  Hiding   will   meet tn  soloot u
oandidate. The call lor the convention
invites to attend all those who nre nt
present ineinbors of the Liberal-Con-
servntive party or who intend lo ba-
oome members nf that party.
Several names hnvo beeu Suggested,
among them Will Irviue, (Jeorge Neo-
lands, W. A Maedoimld, John Elliot,
Frank Fletcher and 3. H. Howes
Soineol these gentlemen have absolutely doelinod to allow tlie use of Iheir
iinniOH, while others have .inked Unit
tliny be selected only after certain
others hnvo refused
gin-lemon
That uno ol the
above referred lo will be
Selected there is little doubt, Tbe
probability Of a dark horso looming
up at the Inst moment is slight.
It is believed that whoever Iho
nominee may he he will llnd hearty
inpport from those or the Liberal party
who me opposed to Joseph Mm I in.
There is no likelihood of a Liberal
candidate entering the Held. The thirn
canilidnto will he a Martin mnn, who
Iiiih not yet beou selected. Before Mr.
John A. Turner's return to Nelson
there wus some talk of his running in
Martin's interests. Mr. Turner, however, knew nothiug of it nnd yesterday
set at rest any doubt us to the position
he will occupy. He slnted eiiipliatcally
thut under no oiroumstancaq wonld he
be u oandidate. Thoro is still some
talk of Mr. Charles Hillyer, and that
gentleman may yet enter the Held.
The ex-aldennnu bns become a most
enthusiastic Martin man. Ho would
prefer some one else to make the rnn,
bnt, if pressed, would probuijly aecept
himself.

Iho nnionut uioutioned. Mr. Turner
was introduced to the gentleman iu
London ns a British Columbia man
and was at once nsked as to the best
method of sending u small nmount of
money to this Province. Mr. Tnrner
usked to whut city or towu it wns to
he sent und was told it wns intended
for Nelson. He tbeu volunteered to
tnke it himself, and it was left in The
Miner ollice tbis morning in the original package.
Transfers were recorded yesterday as

Whon Col. Dudley, United States
Consul at Vancouver, returned from
his recent visit to Nelson he told the
Vancouver reporter that he had been
here m connect ion with Mr. Kenibbs'
resignation. "After taking the matter up fully," be says, "Mr. Keuihbs
deoided to withdraw bis resignation,
nnd be wns granted a month's leave of
absence, which be will tako and go to
Boston to look after some business
mattors which acorued in connection
with the estate of his sister, who died
recently." The Miuer may add that
unless some ohangss are made iu con-
uection with the Consular Agenny at
Nelson, Mr. Kenihhs may not return.
Jerry Rohillard has hutulcd the
Minor tbe following: "Defeat makes
the school iu which most of us are
trained. In all kinds of work men
learn by mistakes. Tbo sunoessful
business man did not tegin with success. He learned by experience and
the experience was very costly. The
true science of living is nor, to never
make mistakes, but uot to repeat one's
inistnke. Defeat, wheu one has done
one's hest, nnd when one takes a lea-
sou from his defeat, is not something
to be ashamed of, hut something to be
glad for, since it sets one's feet on n
little higher plane. Defeat wbioh
makes us wiser and better is a blessing to us. We owe muoh to defeats,
witb the humbling of the old nature,
the cleansing of motive and affeotion,
nnd the deepening of truM in God."
An eastern paper has printed the following letter received from an Independent : Dear Sir���Please give notioe
in yonr next issno, stating my views
of an independent candidate. Every
independent oandidate is certainly a
church representative. He must be a
muu that hns acted as au evangelist
for twenly-one years without any support. God then inspires bim to make
tbe canvass ahead of every other man.
He must prove faithful for seveu
yenrs. It is evident theu that if the
candidate oarries a level head for tbat
length of time, he must have n good-
shnood bead. I have secured by prom-
iso, one-third of the reform vote, and
I believe fully one-half the Conservative vote, and nil the middle men.
Gentlemen, don't promise your votes,
ns my nomination is assured by numbers of ratepayers, besides as I am a
ohnroh oandidate on the Independent
ticket, the ratepayers and property
holders must see thnt I am nleoted, or
the judgment will be put on the oonntry, if they deny the power of God to
say thut I am not the mini to fill the
ollloe. John Johnston. N. B.��� If the
independent elootors will oall a meeting at onoe. and mini tbe necessay
funds, I will slnnd for the Dominion
House. If this is not done, and tbe
judgment of God fulls on the country,
the electors will have themselvos to
illume for it,    J. J.

in tbe upper oonntry. While admitting that Martin has souio friends
throngh the inteiior, he considered the
chances for the return of his Government very poor unless, conditions
changed materially before tho eleotion.
Regarding the anti-Japanese olauses,
in Martin's platform, he thinks thai
the Premier will make trouble by attempting to fight the Dominion Government. The disallowance of reoent
legislation alone shows, according to
Mr. Hostook, that Martin knows he is
going np against the Lanrier Government in bis anti Japanese clause.
Cotton is in the oity todny but he
declines to make any statement ragard-
ing hia intentions.
