A Rather Lukewarm Meeting
at the Opera House
Last Night.
Ex-Speaker of the Legislature Addresses Large
Audience.
Minister of Mines Bobs Up to
Contradict Mr. Forster's
Arguments.
The meeting oalled last night nt
the Opera House by Thomns Foreter
was not the soene of any great enthusiasm either on one sido or the other.
When Mr. David McBenth.who wns in
the chair, oalled the meeting to order
the Opera House was well tilled and
Mr. Forster.who wns tho first speaker,
was received by those preseut with o
fair   amount of  applause.
He announced that it was his intention to spsak iu opposition to the remarks made bv.Hon. Joseph Martin in
bis reoent speech made here in Nelsou.
He condemned Mr. Maitin'a policy
and that of the present Goveument. and
defended the Semlin GovenmeLt in
regnrd to the B.C. Soothoru land grant
and said they were fully entitled to
make an arrangement with the C. P.
B., which foot wns denied by Mr.
Marin He went over the royalty
olar.BBB in the above grant and said
that the coal in the Crow's Nest Pass
in roost certainly subject to a royalty
of- five oents por ton, aud also a further royalty.
He ridiculed the impression thnt Mr
Martin was trying to create to the
effect that ho and his party were the
only means by which the prosperity of
the Proviuce oonld he maintained, and
that they were the only people who
oouid properly look after tho interests
of the people at large. In fait his
whole speeoh was one long condemnation of Mr. Martin, bis Government
and platform. It did not awnksn any
remarkable amount of enthusiasm
among his bearers.
Tho Hon. Smith-Onrtis, Minister of
Minos, who followed Mr. Foster, nnd
flpoko in opposition to him, said that
Mr. Martin was the only party leader
now before the peoplo and thnt their
party wns really tbo only party now
in existenoe thut was n party. That
the Opposition was composed of many
faotions lead variously hy Messrs. Turner, Wilson and Cotton. That eaeh
faotion had its own ideas and wns opposed to tbo others and, therefore,
lacking any unity of purpose, tbey did
not constitute a pnrty. Mr. Martin
waB a strong man of stroug convictions and honesty of pnrposo, who was
without doubt tbe leader for the people
to follow. He advocated tho Government ownership of railways, such as
wbb now boing advanced in Manitoba
by Premier Maodonald. Also tho finishing of Boundary linos and iu tbis
the completion of the 0. P. R. He
was also in favor of the most stiingout
and progressive mensnres fnr the exclusion of all alien labor. He was against
the land grant to the O.P.B, end most
emphatioally ondnrsed the farming out
oftheeoal measures mulct Nanaimo Bay
for the benefit ot the people. Mr.
Smith Cnrtis summed np nil these
points in favor of Mr. Mnrtin aud
ctrongly advised all those present to
support bis pnrty and platform at the
ooming election.
Mr. Bmith-Cortis then took nccnaion
to speak of himself nnd his cnudidatnre.
He stated tbat ho had received the
endorsement of nearly all the labor
unions in Rosslaud and that hn was
most emphatioally thu friend of the
laboring man, ns was Mr. Murtin.
Tbey wonld do all they oould to better the cause of tho poor mnn and yet
���t the same time tbey were not the
enemies of the capitalist, for, in giving work to  Ibe laboring man  by the
many lnrge operations that they advocated, they were nt the Bamo time giving the capitalist greater chances for
the investment and inorease of his
capital.
At tho'clnso of his speeoh Mr.Smith-
Curtis took occasion to express his ad-
miration of Mayor Honston as n man
of vigorous ideiiB and rugged honesty,
and ns being the friend of the laboring
man.
Mr. Cnrtis closed his speech with an
nprottl for the support of his loader and
party nt the coming elections.
Mr. Foster then again took the floor
and repeated some of the statements he
had made in his speeab aud contrndiot-
ed severnl of the statements made by
the Minister of Mines.
The meeting was then olosed witb
three cheers for the various candidates.
COURT OF   ASSIZF,.
MAFEKING
Threatened  Attack Averted
by the Gallantry of the
Garrison.
Criminal Oases Tried Yesteray Before
Hon. Mr. Justioe Drake.
The Court of Assize and general jail
delivery opened yesterday morning nt
11 o'clock at tbe Court House. Honorable Mr. Justice Drake was on tbe
bench nnd Hamster J. A. Macdonald,
of Rossland, appeared for tho Crown. ���
The first case called was tbat of Regina vs. Macdonald for unlawful escape from jail. The prisoner was
brought before the Conrt and pleaded
guilty and asked for extenuation on
tbe grounds that he bad never been
given a proper opportunity to disprove
the charge for whiob he was serving a
(sun when the escapo took place. He
bears a bad record, bnt Mr. Justice
Drake, in consideration of tbe faot
that no violence was used, gave him
only three mouths additional sentence,
to be served at tbe expiration of bis
present term.
The next case was Regina vs. Rogers, tbu charge being the stealing of a
watoh. Tho following jury wns drawn
from tbe Petit Jnry toll: John Rne,
H. F. W. Pollok, Theo. Madson, S. J.
Campbell, John D. Ewar, W. J. Astley, Johu Blaney, H. G. Goodeve, W.
H. Honston, H. D. Hume, Wm. Lnnr
and George Gurd, foreman. Rogers
hnd no counsel but conduoted his own
defense and cross-examined eaoh witness. His many appearances in Court
seem to have givon him some familiarity with the methods of attorneys in
hacking a witness. Tbe Justice in
charging tbe jnry for conviction took
occasion to score Molntyre, who pur-
lahsed the stolen watch, for his connection with the prisoner. The jnry
gave a verdict of guilty without leaving the box. In delivering sentence
the Justice considered the bad record
of the prisoner nnd gave him eighteen
months nt hard labor to be Berved at
tho oxpiration of his present term.
The Court then adjouruei until 2
p.m.
After the recess tbe first oase called
was Region vs. Podoin. The prisoner
was charged witb criminal assault
upon Edith Ratoliffo, of Slocan City.
Tho jury in this cuse were as follows:
R. W. Day, foreman; Wm. Lour, John
A. Dowar, Johu T. Fife, F. J. Bradley, Johu Toye, Alex Carrie, H. 1).
Hume, F. M. C. Chudbourue, Wm.
Waldie, J. C. Sohomerhorn nnd F. S.
MoFarland.
S. S. Taylor appeared for the defense. After hearing the testimony of
Edith Hutcliffc, who is 14 years old,
and Mrs. Murray, and the evidence of
tbo prisoner ou his own behalf, Mr.
Jnstiio Drake charged strongly against
tho prisoner and pointed ont tne eon.
tradictinns in his testimony. Tbe
jnry retired nnd after a two hours ses-
-iiun bronght in a verdict of gnilty of
indnoent assault. Mr. Jnstico Drake
Immediately sentenced Podoin to two
years iu the ponitinttary.
YMIR NOTKS.
A big strike is reported from Ymir
on tho Big Mom nun'. Hlnoe tbe
snow hns disappeared a good deal of
prospeoting ban beeu done on
the surfnou under tho superiutendonco
of Mr. Spencer, who took charge sinoe
the snow covered the gronnd. Ab a
result of this surface work, good indication wero discovered n little to tbe
nm I beast of the shaft and n drift be
ing rnn in thnt direotion nt a distance
of fifteen feot only a solid body of ore
was disclosed. Tho ore is seven foot
widn nnd is richer looking than any
yet encountered at. tbe time of writing.   The assay result is not known.
Another good find hns been made on
the Wilcox mine. Tbo tuuiul which
is being driven to most what is known
ns the Fourth of July shaft has encountered tho extremity of the oro chute
whioh is even rioher in appearance
than in tho shaft. Thoie specimens
brought down showed considerable
fiou gold among the galena.
Lord  Roberts'  Advance
Meeting With Great
Success.
Is
Everything  Points to   Continued Success for the
British.
London, May 9.-4. a. m. ���Fonr
thousand British cavalry watered their
horses at Zand River Monday, 36 miles
beyond Small Deel, where Lord Roberts continues to date his dispatohes.
The scontB who have been searching
the country for miles along the stietm
have found no Boers south o the rivir.
The enemy are laagered :n unknown
force on the north bank, thus the British advance guard is within 46 mihs
of Kroonstadt. The Fiee Staters in
the expectation that Kroonstadt will
speedily beoome untenable are, according to information from Lorenzo Mar.
quez, preparing to transfer thoir Gov-
ornment to Heilbrnn, littlH more thai
fifty miles northeast. The proclnnia
lions of Lord Roberts appears to have
little effeot upon the inhabitants of
the invaded districts. Every farm is
found deserted except bv tbo women
and children. All the men are nwuy
fighting.
Correspondents nt headquarters nre
now wiring freely concerning tbe in
nidents connected with thn occupation
of Small Doel. Some exasperation It
expressed at the ease with which the
Boers escape with tbeir transports be
fore the very eyes of the British troops
When tbe British entered Small Deel
the Boers' wagons ooolly outspanned
only live miles away. Lord Robeitt
is described bb "rightly unwilling ti
saorifioe hit horses the sake of h com
parativol.v miuor advantage," never
theless the loss of horse flesh, in spiti
of all precautions, is enormous.
Small Deel is a small village of onlv
a score of dwellings bnt it expanded ii
one night to a vast canvas city, anr;
the glow of tbe camp fires was like a
soene in an i.on smelting dislrict.
The city is likely to fade nway in n
day by tbe immediate progress of in
fantry to the Zand River. Tho tidings
from Maicking are gloomy indeed.
Everybody tbere has an empty stomach and a pinched face. Tbe natives
are no longer given even porridge, aud
tbe whites have nothing bnt a qnnrt uf
that substance nnd a pound of hone
sausage daily. Everything else eatable
has gone. Insufficient food,wet trench,
es and cold nights are deadly to the
health of the garrison. This information comes from reliable natives.
Lady Sarah Wilson, under date ol
April 7th, says:
"The   Boers   now nnmber 4,600, inolnding   young   Eloff, President   Km
ger'B grandson, who has   seut  for   fix
moie gnns."
A Mafeking correspondent of the
Times, wbo also emphasizes the extreme gravity of tho situation, snys:
"It is impossible to ignore tbo fatal
signifioanoe of Col. Baden-Powell's
reference to the hardships endured hy
tbe women and children among whom
many deaths bave already oconrred.
The oommisslrst is hnlding a stock ot
food In reserve for use in the direst
extremity."
A British column is repotted to have
reached Tanngs, UO miles ninth of
Warronton. According to Pretoria
advices, the British aro Hearing Vry-
bnrg, which is half way botween Warrenton and Mafeking. Gen. Hunter Is
probahly not in personal command of
this relief column. His forces emhrnre
20,000 infantry and 6,000 to fl.iKKi
horseman, nn army fnr greater thnn
has hitherto been anpposed. Loid
Methnen Is apparently a subordinate.
.While  tbt  relief  column  Is moving
towards Viybnrg, General Hutitor is
apparently preparing an orderly advance northeast, along the Vaal River,
to participate in tbe Pretoria advance
of Lord Huberts' left flank,
Warrenton, Capo Colony, Monday,
May 7. ���A British oamp is now being
formed at Fourteen Streams. Tbe old
railroad bridge can be repaired in a
week. The Boer prisoners say tbe
Burghers, who number 10,000 men,
are now on iheir'wuy to Christians.
Smnll Deel, Orange Fiee State, May
1.���Gen. Hutlou's advanced camp of
the Colonial regiments is tonight settled at Iwodgelegcu (Welge-legen) Siding. Accordiiiug to reports the Boeis
intend to make a tig stand uoar the
Zand River. Tho railroad has been
repaired to the sonth sido of the Vet
River, uud tho engineers nre busy
making a di ride ucross the bed.
Lorenzo Mnrquez, Sunday, Mny, 5.���
A despatch received heio from Col.
Plnmer's camp, bearing date of April
20, states that Iho Boers aroond Mafeking have been gradually re-inforced
and that their stieugth is estimated ni
it,000. Col. Plumer hns succeeded in
communicating with Mafeking hy
menus of carrier pigeons nnd is endeavoring ta communicate with the
southern relief oaluiim.
T
London, May 8.��� The following de
-match from Lord Roberts has been received at tbo Wur Office:
"Smnll Deel, May 7.���Tho railway
trom Brandfort to this plnce was considerably damaged nud the bridge ovei
the Vet Rivor has becu hopelesslj
damnged. Tbis delays supplies com
-ng up. Every few yards chnrges ol
rook have beou laid under tbo rails.
Thia might bave created loss oi life,
hut wns fortunately discovered by i,
West Australian infantryman. Win-
hnrg is occupied hy the Ilighlanr
drigade. In spite of theso wrecked
railroads tho British udvanre goes on
steadily." Lord Roberts' outposts an
ippnrenty about 12 miles north ol
Small Deel. Gen. Brabant hns joinee

lonnced Impregnable and their evacuation in reported to hnvo been duo t<
the receipt of nn nrgrnt message fron
President Steyn. Tho Beers are sai<
to be moving northward, but tlieii
Ic'tination is not known.1'
The whereabouts of tbo British cavalry unilei Gen. Frenoh is still n m;.s
(cry, whilo Gen. Kelly-Kenny'fl mul
Gen. Oherrnside's divisions nre nisi
unaccounted for. A dispatch from
Cnpe Town, dated today, says:
"Lord Roberts' phenomenal advanci
is not utterly demoralising tho Boei
hut   is   striking   terror  into tin re be.
colonists.    Tho relief   of   Mafeking is
expeoted at nny iiinmeut"
The  Cnpe   Town   correspondent  is
slightly optimistic, us regards Mufe
king. Judging from the direct despatches tho British forces south ol
Mafeking nre siill nearly two hundred
:::i]es from their objective, while tin
lutest   advices (nun   Mafeking   itself,
dnted Apiil 20th, show little amelioration in the conditions thore.
Tho despatches from Mafeking say:
"With the exception of n little rill"
fire at thn outlying trenches every
thing is quiet. Tbe slight epidemic ol
typhoid lever is ubuting ns a rusnlt ol
the medical precautions, Tho enemy'),

tbat the enemy Intended to attnuk anil
the entire garrison stcod to Its arms.
When dny broke Col, Baden-Powell
took np n position on the lookout and
the heavy mltle of mnsk-'lry and the
boom of four guns convinced us thnt
an attack was about to open. But it
became apparent thnt tbo Boers' oflieers conld not persuade their men to
advance. Through glnssni we saw ollicers keenly urging tho infantry forward. The enemy reformed and rotir
ed. Onr men fired n shut In tlm hope
of inducing the enemy to OCtne to close
quarters. Tbo native distress has been
alleviated, many of them slipping
through the Boer lines. The men of
the garisrii forego lluir stignr ration
for tbe benefit of the women and children. After the I I.anion iii April 21
nil was comparatively quiet."

not necessary to disouss them. A word
or two may li i advisable, however, in
regard to the appearance of Mr. K. O.
Beatou's name on the voters' list. The
Miner hns nothing to do with the outside aotions of its employees ;t,bey may
apply for registration, or not, as they
please. In the case refeiied to we understand the young mau was advised
his qualification wns snffloient, nnd so
believing ho mnde application. It wns
open to Mr. Houston, or his agents, or
to any other person or persons interested in the matter, to appeal against his
name, and if shown that his residenoe
did not comply with tho luw it conld
be stricken otf. Thero was a very easy
remedy in cb6o tbe application were
irregular or faulty, and if adopted The
Miner wonld hnve been the Inst to
make complaint. Uno of the purposes
of the law ie to protoot the lists
against improper registration, and the
Miner will alwuys bu found ou tho
aide of tbe law.
It is uot its business, howovor, to
make appeals. It did not appeal in
tbe oase mentioned, nor did it appeal against any of tha five hnndred
names which Mr. Honston nnd his
friends collected for registration. It
neither made appeals nor had any
knowledge that appeals were to be
made. It wan a party to no conspiracy, and has defeuded none. It believes in tbe law. It believes in oloan
voters' lists and pure eleotions.
Whether rightly or wrongly, it understood that the names of n uuinber of
persons who were not qouliliod had
been gathered together mid pnt in for
registration. Objection was mnde in
the regular form. Whether through
inadvertence or lack of iiiformnton,
this objection unfortunately applied to
a number of other names flint would
bavo been qualified if not thus challenged. It is hunt to punish the gooil
for the bad, no donbt, hut. it wns an
outrage to hnve the names nf those aliens
and strangers go on the list. The
Miner believed tbey bud been obtained
Willi fraudulent intent. It believes so
yet. It believes tbnt Mr. Houston is
nnpilnoipled enough to be guilty of
any triok to secure bis election. Such
knowledge of tbo world an be possess-
ea and sneh pnblio morality
as ho baa cultivated wero picked
up in communities nnd among
men whose creed is thnt tho
end justifies the means. Thnt Ib a
creed to which Tho Miuer does not
subscribe. Whatever the end, it believes tho menus should bo olenn,
straight, honest, uud nboveboard.
2 So believing, it thought that any
steps that might bo necessary fbonld
be taken to purge the list, of thoso
fraudulent nemos. Their very preseucn
is a wrong, and the wrong will bo
many times enlarged if their presence
shall resnlt In the election of Mr.
Houston to the Legislature. Thnt election might not be a calamity, but it
Wonld be discreditable to Nelson and
tbe electors of this Riding wonld havo
cause to regret it.   Many of those who
Defending bis rnilwny policy, and
the bnilding of the proposed Ooast-
Kooteuay line, at his Groonwood meeting thn other night, Mr. Maitin suid :
"I say that this railroad will pny, as
iu other countries." Thut is, it will
pny as a Governmont work fur the reason that Government railways pny in
other couutiies. That is poor reasoning. The finnncial success of a railway does uot depend on who builds it.
A Government railway will not pay
unless tbere in traflla to sustain it,
any moro thnn a company's railway.
In this case tbe Government railway
would require more souroes of traffic,
beuauso it wonld bo operated ut a
grenter disadvantage. If built nt all,
it would be biilt ns a competitor to
the railways we already bave. In making Irullic arrangements with these,we
are afraid Mr. Martiu would soon find
himself at tho meroy of conditions he
forgot to reokon with.
Mr. 1 liiuston is wrong in saying tbat
Tho Miner slandered him in a statement that he "was employing nonresidents upon municipal work, to the
exclusion of lesidents. " Tbat charge
was made by resident laborers in a
petition or remonstrance to tbe Council, sent in u seoond timo for the
rsason thnt tbe first was suppressed,
as was supposed then aud sinoe by Mr.
Houston himself. The Minor bad no
doubt of its trnth, and in tbe interest
of resident laborers protested against
tbe practice. If tbere was slander,
Mr. Houston must go farther than the
The Miner for its source. Certain
facts patent to tbe public have also
given ground for tbe charge that Mr.
Houston is making ooriupt use of hie
authority ns Mayor to advanoe his election.    Peihaps  tbat, too, is a slander?
"No more Sandon" is the heading
wbioh Tho Grand Forks Gazette affixes
to its anoonnt of the fire. How little
it knows nbout it. There will soon be
a greater and braver Sandon than ever.
Those wbo think tho Saudou people
are the kind to sit down under affliction nnd bemoan themselves into oblivion do not know them.

Continued from Kirni I'nuo.
Lord Koberts pnys his tribnle to tho
tact, judgment and resolution of Col.
Kekewick nnd his forces, nnd adds
that Mr. Oeoil Bhodes, the mayor anrl
other oitizeus, rendered the most valu-
able assistance in helping to maintain
order among the civil Inhabitants, encouraging them to hold ont, attending
to the sick nnd wounded and generally
cooperating with the military commander. Hy also snys by the aotive
part wbioh he took in raising the
Kimberley Light Horse nnd providing
boress for all he monntntd troops at
Kimberley. Mr. Bhodes, in particular contributed materially to the successful defence of the plaoe. Col.
Kokowiok also paid u tribute to Mr.
BhodeB and his zealous work.
London, May B.���The War Ollice has
lasned tho following dispatch from
Lord Koberts, dated Smalldee), Mny 8
"General Hntton with   Monuted In
fanrty roconuoitered   yesterday   to^tbo
Sand Bivor and found   the   enemy   in
considerable   force.     General   Broad
���wood's   brigade of  cavalry ^ith Gen
oral  Ian Hamilton's   force  performed
the same  operation   with   muoh   the
same results.''
London, May 8, -Tbe besieged at
Mafekiug nre celebrating the two bun-
dieth day of tho siege witb horse dinners. Colouel Baden-Powell sent a
message to Lord Koberts eaying:
"After two liundre days of siege I
desiie to bring to yonr lordship's notice the exceptionally good sp lit to
loyalty which pervades nil classes of
the RarriBon and the patience of everybody. Mafeikug is making the best of
things nnder the long i-trniu of anxiety
and hardship nnd privation whioh is
beyond all praisa nud u revelation to
me. Tbe men, half ot whom are not
accustomed to the use if arms, have
adapted themselves to tbeir duties
with tbe greatest zeal and readiness.
The pluok and devotion of the women
has been remarkable. Witb such
spirits our organization runs like
clockwork. I have every hope it will
pull us throngh."
Mr. Rhodes hns arrived at Oape Colony without any oemonstration beiug
mnde. He goes to Beira, Portuguese
East Africa, aud theuce to Khodesia,
probably visiting General Sir Frederick Onrrington. It is nimoaunced
tbat no more Boer prisoners will bo
sent to St. Helena.
London, May H.���A Capetown correspondent leRrns that an important
move in Natal is exported within the
next fonr dnys. Gen. Heller is rapidly
completing his transport organization.
Tbe proceedings of the Transvaal
Volksraad indicate President Kruger'B
undiminished tenacity of purpose. Iu
the course of thn debate, he said that
shonld he he sent to St. Helena, the
Republican cause would still goon.
Gen.-iiils Louis Botha aud Lucas Meyer
are in Pretoria consulting with tho
Volksraad.
A dispatoh from Maseru, Basntoland,
