Supposed Drowning In Kootenay Lake
of Five Miners.
Kaslo, B. C, June 1.���Every year
Kootenay Lake claims its victims.
In the past few days no fewer than
live miners lire supposed to lie drowned.
They arc called W. Freeman, W.
Keiiyon, Adam Bncid and Hurry Sutherland.
The first named couple left here
Monday for some mining claims beyond Fry Creek. Lemon went in the
same direction a day later, while
Baird and Sutherland traveled to Lar-
do-Duncan in small row bouts some
weeks since and have never more been
heard of. Lemon's bout was found
floating in the lake yesterday, while
people who have searched for Baird
and Sutherland can find no trace of
them, It is hoped that Preeman anil
Konyon nre still alive bnt their
friends fear for their safety. If they
have been drowned it Is not likely
that their bodies will be recovered.
Kootenay Lake seldom gives up its
dead. In fact until lust yeur it wns
known as the lake that never gave up
its dead, but last fall two liodies
were taken out of It. These arc the
only two recovered out of scores.

Ottawa, Ont., June I���The Premier
told Sir Charles Tapper when the
House met today, that he would give
the na mi's and particulars of the commission to investignto the election irregularities on Monday next. It wns
an important mutter und be wished to
have the Minster of Justice here before
it wns issned. At present Mr. Mills wa��
iu Western Ontario, not being very
well, but would be back by that lime.
If not he would give tbe pnrticulurs of

Mills were buck or not.
Mr. Charlton repeated his question
In Mr. Fisher in regard to the closing
of the Paris Exposition on Sundays.
Mr, Fisher replied thnt he was happy
to state that through the efforts of Mr.
Tarte, the Canadian Building and the
Colonial Pavilion would both be closed
on .Sundays. There were exits through
tbe main building which would not be
closed, na the commission did not have
any control over lhnn. In reply to
Monk, Fisher said tbat the British part
of tlm exhibition would not be closed.
Sir llibliert. Tupper proceeded once
again to deal with Yukon matters. He
started out by leading from a book on
South Africa, written by J. A. Hobson,
whioh spoke of the corruption that prevailed among Government officials in
the Transvaal, and Sir Hibbert said
that in this respeot there was a similarity between that country and Ihe
Yukon. He took exception to those
who said that his speech of last year
was "much ndo about nothing,*' He
read from a pamphlet of Mr. A. N, C.
Trcudgold, whom he called the witness
of the Minister, to show that irregularities existed at that time in the Yukon. Mr. Treadgold, said Sir Hibbert
Tupper, had received, since he wrote
thu book, a large amount of public
censure. Commissioner Ogilvie was
also psid afterwards nnd Clement, for
bullying the witnesses, was also paid
after the work was done. W. II.

such statement. He had seleoted three
points and to these be confined his re-
mnrks. The first was as to the i.eces
hiii v exercise ot brains so as to take advantage ot whatever oiroumslances
might arise, rapid movement of troops,
and greater effect in rifle shooting. As
Ui the question of mounted infantry, his
idea was to establish one or two oorpa iu

(IIY ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London. June 2.-3 ;45 p. m.���Lord
Roberts continues silent regarding
Pretoria, probably because he cannot
wire of the events from his luiowedge.
Loreiiso Marquez, where ail the
news from the Boer side is rehaiiilleil.
cables that communication with Pretoria is now Suspended. Some messages by courier have reached Loreiiso
Marquez, lint nolle of later date than
Wednesday. These assert thai the
Bnrghers are in u state of panic, and
thnt Pretoria is being controlled by
Vigilance committees,
Lorenzo Marquez again sends the report that President Kruger bim been
captured. This news gives rise to the
suspicion thnt tbe ���committee ut Pretoria may not have been able to carry
out their plans for securing tin: peaceful entry of Lord Roberts, and sparing
the city the hoirors of a siege.
The peace party appeared lo be iu the
ascendant, und as soou as President
Kruger and his Cabinet left Pretoria to
organise a new capital, tbe citizens' committee pei-suiided the commandants of
the forts to withdraw some of Ihe troops
from tbe defences, perhaps with a view
of keeping order in the town.
If messengers were sout to the British, or if the British, being two honrs
murch from Pretoria on Wednesday,
entered it then or at nny time Jprior to
Friday noon, Lord Roberta would cer-
taiutly have telegraphed this faot.
Henoe it looks as though there was a
Boer foroe between Pretoria and Johannesburg.
These soldiers, fulling buck toward
Pretoria, some of them fresh from the
fight with (leneral Iun Hamilton,
would have brought a new element
into the situation, and would probably
overrule the peace Committee, tnking
the direction of affairs out of their
hands. If this has happened, the
British may, us the Dally Chronicle
says, "see some hard fighting before
the British Hug Hies over Pretoria,
for even if the Boors ln-hl only three
forts, standing close together on the
hills south of the town, they would be
in a position to stand a siege."
The Boers, according to a special de-
patch from Lorenzo Marquez, have reentered the northeastern territory of
the Free Slate and are engaged with
the British near Ventersburg nnd Harris-
smith.
It is reported from Amsterdam that
the best rooms ut Net Ilaiisje, oue of the
principal hotels there, hnvo been en-
gnged for President Kruger for occupancy from June 2T>.

the Boers were repulsed. A small
party in a   garden   continued to tight
tenaciously, but   evacuated   as   the
charge began, leaving a number of
wounded. The British lost fifteen
killed, including Colonel Spence, nnd
thirty wounded.
Rumors Current That He Is Willing to
Lead Liberal Party.
London,     June     1.���In   connection
with  the   rumors current    of    Lord
Roseherry's willingness to resume the
leadership of the Liberal Party, if the
majority of   the party   desires   it,    he
is   regarded us  having  embodied  his
principles in the following letter sent
tonight to  the   Plymouth Mercury on
the occasion of its fourth anniversary:
After   formally   congratulating    the
paper, lAird Rosebery proceeds:
"This anniversary comes at a remarkable moment, It finds faction annihilated by tbe war.lin which the great
mass of the nation desires to stand
shoulder to shoulder for the war. With
all its eurses it may ultimately bring a
blessing. It may brace up the nation.
It may mould a nation. It may unite a
nation. It must make a nation take
stock of itself, and examine its deficiencies. Under these circumstances the
functions ot the press are always important,; and have supreme value at such a
juncture. It must be sinceie; it must
divest itself of the mere catch words and
impulses of the party.
"It mnst be prepared to discard the
obsolete shibboleths, to search out
abuses, to disregard persons, to be insistent in pressing for necessary reforms, social, educational and administrative and,if need be,constitutional,
and, moreover with regard to the sane
appreciation of the destinies and responsibilities of the empire. We stand
at the parting of the ways. Will Britain flinch or falter in her wide-world
task'.' How is she host to pursue it ?
What now forces and inspiration will
it neod '! Wbnt changes does it involve.' These are questions reqniring
clear sight, oool courage and freedom
from formula. It is beoause, I believe
the press is facing this crisis in our
I'oiiiiues in u hold, liberal spirit, that
I seiid. a message of hearty good will. "

Hull Willi a relief party entered Koomns-
sie May ��> The Governor, Sir F. M.
Hodgson, with tbe Bick, wounded and
refugees, was expected to arrive at
Kunisii May :10th. Troops have been
concentrated ut Fumsu to overeome any
postible resistance by tbe rebels who
are reported to be north of there. If the
re|.nil of the relief of Kuomassie is correct,it greatly improves the military situation. ,
It is understood that Captain Hall
has with bim, a force of Him men and
that altogether 8,000 men have been
marching to tbo relief ot tbe beleaguered town.
Thj hpectator commenting noon the
situation there says: "We bope

if fhe matter were defeated or checked
we might have Ihe whole of western

But notwithstanding the optimistic
tone of the despatch from Capo ('oast

situation Of affairs, inasmuch as, apart
from the possibility of (iovernor Hodg.
son's parly being cut off by the enemy
north of Fumsu, it practically an-
uniiuccs the evacuation of Kooinas-

its very extravagance will come relief. It is in that hope The Miner
is supporting Mr. Fletcher and sin
ceiely urging his election, for ofthe
candidates in Nelson he is the one
beyond all doubt whose return gives
most promise of the adoption of a
rational system of government.
And confident in that belief, it appeals to all who love their Province
to join in rendering his election
sure.
This, from The Winnipeg Telegram, has all the advantage which
the looker-on of the game is supposed to possess, and is the more
valuable on that account: "The
present contest in British Columbia
is a nice object lesson to those who
object to party government. Tbe
struggles of half a dozen cut-throat
factions are far more fatal to ihe
public interest than any of the evils
of the party system. With the
new Legislature there will probably
be a continuation of those conspiracies, crises, and coups d'etat which
have disgraced Parliamentary government in that Province for the
past few years. It is to be hoped
that the straight Conservatives will
be returned in sufficiently large
numbers, if not to form a Government, at least to be the dominant
group in the Opposition, and then,
by forcing party lines on every
occasion, ultimately compel the
various forces in the Assembly to
line up on that basis "
PARTIES GAIIORK.
"A few weeks ago," says Mr.
Houston's paper, "The Nelson
Miner proclaimed that party government was the only solution for
the political problems of British
Columbia." Anil The Miner is precisely of that opinion still; it has
neither swerved nor halted in its
belief that in this Province we shall
never settle down to quiet, permanent, satisfactory government until
our Legislatures are elected and
Cabinets formed on party lines.
But as it cannot force its views on
others, and as the people have
taken the bit in their teeth and
bolted in an opposite direction, The
Miner has nothing left but to follow
and make the best of the situation
as it is.
The Vancouver World is publishing a list of candidates nominated
on Saturday last. It comprises
Government candidates, Independent Government candidates,
Straight Party Line Conservatives,
Conservatives, Turnerites, Cotton-
ites, Labor candidates, Mackintosh
candidates, Socialists, and Independents. Here are ten parties;
the politics of the country are cut
up into ten divisions, each one
appealing for support. Some of
the distinctions are far fetched and
trivial, perhaps, but on the whole
the classification is substantially
correct. Will any intelligent man
in the Province in his sober senses
pretend to claim that there can ever
be settled, satisfactory government
in the face of these interminable
factions ? And until a system of
Straight party government is introduced tbe situation, instead of
growing better, will become worse.
This wretched political weed will
continue to spread until every candidate becomes a party in himself,
owing loyalty to no leader, owing
allegiance to no principles that do
not emanate from himself. Instead
of order and system and concerted
action that may accomplish something, there will be complete political chaos.
We believe the danger is already
recognised, and that out of the
contusion of the present something
sane will be evolved. The Province
is reeling today like a drunken man
in the excess of its factional indulgence, The men who are responsible for this condition have much to
answer for. But there is good in
the fact that it has at last aroused
a feeling of alarm, and that out of
"How many of tbe electors of
West Kootenay want to see the
Turner party returned to power?"
asks Dr. Hall's editor. That is beyond any man's power to tell without a canvass, but it would be a safe
guess to say that a very large majority of tbem are sincerely regretting that the Turner party were
turned out of power. They can
never be restored in the exact character and complexion by which they
were formerly distinguished, and
perhaps that is a matter for congratulation; but after the chastening
influence of two years ol Opposition
it would be a fortunate thing for the
Province if they were back and putting things to order. If they had
not been disturbed, the Province
would have been spared a year or
more of confusion that has done it
incalculable harm.

Mr. Houston's paper notices the
fact that The Vancouver World
places Dr. Hall in the Martin Government column of nominations, and
assumes that this is the proper
classification. If Tlie World is authority in respect to one classification, it must be so accepted in all.
Doubtless Mr. Houston also observes that The World has only six
Cotton candidates all told. Why
does he not remark on this fact,
which is of much greater general
importance than the placing of Dr.
Hall's name? The only explanation
is that he desires to continue the deceit practised on his supporters by
pretending that the Cotton candidates number fifteen.
The New Westminster Columbian
says that the "crop of working-
men's friends is like the sockeye
run���great every four years." There
is a great run at Nelson just now.
One candidate especially, Mr. Houston, is most extravagant in his
demonstrations of friendship for the
workingman, evidently persuaded
in his own mind that he is simple
enough to be caught with chaff if
tendered in sufficiently generous
quantities. The workingman has
himself largely to blame for this, by
submitting to be patronised in such
offensive fashion, There are workingmen, however, who have spirit
enough to resent it, and with these
Mr. Houston is not the priniest of
favorites.

To the Electors ofthe Nelsou
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District:
jBNTLEmkn���As the nominee of the
Conservative party I beg to offer myself
as a candidate at the ooming genernl
eleotion to represent you in the Legislative Assembly of this Province.
The time has arrived when all parties
nro fully alive to the fact thut tlie future
welfare of our Provinoe demands a
sound, fair aud honest busiuess administration and thnt nuy grant populnr
Party must appeal to other and
higher considerations than those of individual fear of Iobs, or hope of gain.
I consider it the duty of every member
elected, to be a Provincialist to the ex-
lent of the bust interests of the Province
first, last and always, and to support all
good legislation witb that object in view
In asking you for your support, I will
state that I am opposed to hasty legislation of any kind, but particularly with
respeot to our Mining Laws, as tending
to jeopardize business interests and to divert capital: for instance, twice the Legislature has passed Alien Exclusion
Laws and they are now for the second
time seeking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief .and damage.
With regard to the Eight-Hour Law, I
am opposed to any change in the law
as it now stands. Shorter hours for all
classes of labor is no new iden, but iu
my opinion the principle should be such
nu to appeal to all Seetione of the Com-
nuuiity ns being not only a necessity ond
beneficial to all, but iu keeping with tbe
genernl advance ment of our civilization.
I would advocate the amendment nnd
strict enforcement of the Metnlliferous
Mines Inspection Act, bo ns to more e(-
fcctunlly proteot the lives of workmen.
With regard to the Mineral Aot: I
would endeavor to have certaiu sections
more clearly defined, for the purpose of
avoiding litigation ; aud with regnrd lo

I would strongly advocate increased
Grants for -loads, Trails and Bridges
wherever suoh will upbuild end developc
our Province, more especially in the
Mining Distriots, and all suoh expenditure to be placed iu capable nnd experienced hands to be dealt with in a
systematic way.
Our undeveloped natural resources
Bhould receive more attention, and be
more widely advertised in order to attract
capital.
With regard to cheap foreign labor I
believe, where the remedy is an Imperial
matter, in view of the stand our Province
aud Country hus taken in the present wnr
giving both lives nnd money, the desired
end enn be gained if properly sought,
without bringing about a serious misunderstanding with tbe Dominion Qovernment aud entailing deplorable agitation
as we require peace and prosperity in our
midst.
I am opposed to nny clique or faotion
uf political ngitators whose principle aim
to embarrass and retard the business
of the Proviuce for purely personal ad
vancewent,
I strongly condemn tho aotions of the
Lieut.-Governor ns being au invasion of
the principle of responsible government
nnd a misuse of his power under our
Constitution,

To the Electors of Nelson Riding, West Kootenay District

Gentlemen. ���In response to miner-
onsly signed requisitions asking me to
he a oiiuilidnte tor the Provincial Log-
islatora at the forthcoming election, I
have consented to enter the ooutest as
an Imli'i"���inli-iit Liberal.
Ibave the honor, therefore to solicit
youl votes anil influence, and if elected 1 shall do my utmost to secure for
the Province honest, economical and
progressive government.
A brief outline of some of tbo principles whit'h I think should be embodied iu the Legislative Aots la given
below.
I linvo tho honor to he gentlomen,
Your obedient servant,
G. A. B. HALL.
1. The priuoiple of eight hours constituting ;i legal day's work should be
recognized and strictly enforced.
2. Steps Bhould immediately be
taken through   the proper   channels tn
prevent  tha  Immigration   into   this
oonntry of Chinese and Japnuose labor
era.
8, Two dollars and a half por day
should lie the minimum wngo of unskilled lalior throughout the Proviuce
on all government works.
4. A fnir wage bill should be introduced requiring the payment of standard wages on all works to which the
Province contributes subsidies or aid
in any form.
5. The establishment of a labor
bureau under the direction of a Minister of the Crown, whose duty it shall
he among other things, to collect labor
stiitistios, and   to act  aa   a   mediator

between employers and workmen in
all oases of aelual or threatened
strikes with power to call nnd examine witnesses and compel disclosure
of all material faots iu connection
with suoh disputes.
(!. I believe tbat trims; roads should
be built and maintained by the government and encouragement given to
miners to extond lliese roads. Such
work should be directed by competent
government engineers. Where truils
are required to single or small groups
of claims the cost of such trails, if
built by the claim owners on the approval aud under direction of a government iiipseotor or engineer, shnll
apply as  assessment  nnon the claims.
7. Government ownership of all
telegraph systems and railways where
practicable by construction or purchase.
8. The establishment of technicnl
schools   for   metullflerous   miners   in

connection with smelters   nt   different
points in the Piovinoe.
0. To draw the attention of capitalists aud investors to British Columbia
as a desirable centre for profitable
mining operations by suitable advertisement and by the nppoiutment of
a special ngeuc at London and elsewhere whose services shall be free aud
equally available for all owners of
British Colnmhia properties.
10. To encourage the establishment
nt suitable points in British Columbia of t
(a) Steel nnd iron works.
(b) Shipbuilding yards.
(0)   Additional   smelters  and   refineries.
11, The retaining of the resources
of the Proviuce as au inset for the
benefit of the people, and taking effective measures to prevent the nlienation
of the public domain, except to  actual

settlers or for bonn fide business or industrial purposes, thus putting nn end
to the practice of speculating in the
same.
Vi, The taking of active measures
for the systematic exploration of the
Province, including a government survey of the province by sections nnd
the preparation of accurate and cheap
maps iu accordance with suoh   survey.
IS. The interests of the Province
oan be best served by a permanent
civil service, appointments to which
should bo marie by reason of merit and
not of political iuflneuoe.
14. All unoccupied lands in the Province should be open to bona fide settlers at fair prices which shnll be da-
oided npon by a government land agent
or valuator, and better facilities should
be given for acquiring small arena for
establishment of market gardens nnd
homesteads.
15 Where mineral claims are held
by joint owners and where ono or
more of such owners refuses to oon-
trinnte towards tho annual assessment
work, provision should be made in the
Mineral Act for the sale of the interest of such delinquent  owner.
lfi. Tho abolition of the deposit by
candidates for the legislature.
Redistribution of the constituencies
on an equitable basis.
I will advocate the appointment of
a conciliatory Board to consist of
representatives of Labor. Business
and Capital, to whom all disputes
between Labor and Capital will be
submitted.
The  establishment  of a
Labor Bureau.
(The Minor is not in any way responsible for any of the sentiments
expressed In these columns. The
matter is prepared by llr. Hall's
friends ami occupies space purchased
by Dr. Hall's committee.)
ENGLISH MONEY.
Houston Would Not Seek Old  Country
Capital.
John     Houston's   residence   in   the
United   Slates   at the time  when   his
mind was at the Impressionable stage
brought him into contact witb the
anti-English citizens of that country
which no   doubt bad something to do
with his antipathy to England ami
everything -ngllsh, even the money.
Constant dropping will wear a bole in
:i stone. John's young ininri must
havo   become somewhat disappointed.
What  about American  money John?
Is it all right? The loyal cili/.cns of
this greal Empire will rejoice to sec
their fellow subject* reap as largo a
benefll us possible out of our immense
mineral resources, At the same time
they will he glad to see money flowing in from all quarters of tbe globe.
The Tribune designates Mr. Houston's Wednesday night meeting as
one of "itim stalwart supporters of
John Houston."    As   a matter of fact
1 here were not that number there,
fully twenty-live per cant bad no
votes,  many  were aliens ami quite a
number were supporters of Hall and
Hotelier, nil of whom went U> see the
fun, and wore not disappointed ns
many funny things wore said. John
mi id   In-   was   a   "broad   man.   broad
enough to represent this city, this
Riding, this Provinoe." Theaudlenoe
laughed vociferously, No doubt .lobn
hns the gal] to think so even without
'"Hon. If abroad platform was all
that was necessary he is just the man
that would appropriate everything in
sight ami endeavor to dovetail them
Into a homogeneous whole. After
many extraordinary statements be
pulled   himself   up.    There was groat
oheerlng   by  the  professionals as he
sat down. John's chum in this light.
Mr, (Ireen. ono of the candidates from
the slocan Killing, reminded the
audience thnt they should not be
carried away by enthusiasm, that
"the other follows wore working like
heavers." lie did not see that many
were laughing at the fun, but Chairman Qalllher described it differently.
He said he "saw several strange
faces who seemed to bo smiling."    Ho
was apparently nervous.
Iii Dr. l-'orin's somewhat mixed
address be referred to Dr. Hall as an
"unwilling candidate" and tried to
make it appear that he was not
brought    out  by   the  representative
mooting of the Liberal Party. True,
doctor, bul you know that you were
one of a number Of so-called Liberals
who packed the meeting, nnd. by ns
mean   a   trick   us   ever   wus   devised
stole the nomination for a Tory named
John Houston. Tho true Liberals
were   not   to   be   trust rated   by  such
schemers but Immediately petitioned
Dr. Hall to come out as their standard bearer,    lie   willingly did so.   lie
and his supporters have gono Into the
fight to win. not by suoh methods as
wore   adopted   by   Dr.    Fori- and his
associates  but   by a straightforward
appeal   to   the   electorate   who desire
honest  representation    to  place   Dr.
Hall at the head of the poll on the
'.Ull of June. Men of tin- calibre of
Dr. I-'orin can hope to gain no end
except by trickery. Tbey have no
Influence In a community.
The rumor of Candidate Hall's
withdrawal fnnn the contest, reported by The Tribune to have been
heard on Hie slreet Wednesday evening, is evidently a ease of -the wish
is father to the rumor" for it is a
well known fact thai there Is nothing
else   that the Houston    party so much
desires  as    Dr.   Halls   withdrawal.
Dr. Hull has about as much not ion of
retiring as Lord    -Hobs" has of doing
so from Pretoria, where victory is
perched upon his banner. Unfortunately for tin1 wishes of the Houston
faction, the sentiment is so strong in
V111Ir for ihe candidate thoy can fully
trust���Dr. Hall���that there will bo on
June the 0th an almost solid Hall vote
nt tbat place, Fully seventy-live per
cent of the voters there are pledged
thus far to support Hall and new
recruits are being added to tho list.
Tho only chance for Candidates Fletcher or Houston to win thero is in the
scrub race.
HOUSTON'S SPEECH.
The pressure on the columns of The
Tribune must have boon very groat
yesterday. Even space" could not be
had for tho Kditor's groat effort of
Thursday night. Vou are a wise man
John. It will take you all day to
revise it.
