They oocupy strong positions at Neg-

Londor, May 10. The   crossing of
the Zand River by the British appears
to have been affected sooner than even
tbe most sanguine expected nud this
morning Lord Roberts' temporary
beadquarteis is established in Cable
Oart on tbe north bauk of tbo river.
The opposition the Federals are offer
ing shows that yesterday's reports of
the abandonment of their position
were ill-founded, Lord Robeite' nd-
vanoa foroe, ooiiBisting of from 10,000
to 13,000 raountod men, besides infantry, artillery nud uavul contingents,
appears to be sufficiently powerful to
overwhelm any opposition the Burghers oan offer. Even though, as reported yeBterday, they havo beou roinfoio-
ed by 3,000 men from other commands
and possess a sooro of heavy guns, tbo
experts believe the opposition will not
be prolonged more than shall be necessary to remove the guns aud other impediments iu the direction of Krooustadt. Further reports from Lorenzo
Marquez show tbat the oustoms authorities, in addition to olothiug uud
shoes, refnee to clear corned beef for

representative, Consul Adalbert Hay,
did not join iu the representation if
any suoh were made. Tho Department

It may be that its line of aotion will

BIG FIRE LOSSES.
Now York, May 10.���Tbe national
board of firo underwriters in annual
convention today, eleoted the following ollicers. President, G. P. Sheldon,
New York; Vioe Presidents, E. L.
Ellison, Philadelphia; Secretary Robert E. Heap. Philadelphia; Treasurer,
IV eii Arnold. Iu bis address the le-
tiring President, H. C. Irvin, of Philadelphia, reviowed the events of the
year and said that the faot wbich
must impress itself on insuranoe mon
as most serious importance, is the
enormous fire loss of the oonntry
whioh amounted in 1809 to 1163,697,-
880.
The polticlans spent yesterday in
disenssing the latest advent into the
Bold of candidates in tbis Riding
namely, Dr. G. A. B. Hall. Just how
it would effeot the situation few ventured to say. Tbe Liberals, themselves
are oonfldent that they oon elect their
oandidate. Some ol tho Conservatives
were of tbe opinion that the doctor
would out into the Houston vote nnd
insure the eleotion of Fletcher, while
Borne Honston supporters were equally
confident that Dr. Hall would pull
from Fletoher nnd make the eleotion
of Honston oertnin.
Ceitain Houslou men were busily
engaged in circulating the report thnt
Dr. Hall was a candidate in tbe interests of Mr. Martin, and oue went
so far as to say that the doctor had not
deuided to announce bis candidacy until after spending three hours in close
eonsulintioii with Mr. Smith Ourtis in
his room in the Hume Hotel on Wed
nesday night.
Tbis story oan hardly he correct as
Tbo Miner was informed at (I o'clock
on Wednesday nigbt���and for publication���that Dr. Hall had deoided to
become a candidate, and, too, it is
hardly probable that Dr. Hall would
be oloseted with Smith Cnrtis at the
same time that that gentleman wus
buBiy engaged with two of Mr. Houston's supporters. This latter conference lasted for several hours during
tho evening. Tbe Houston men desired to do everything possible to secure
tho aid of Smith Curtis iu throwing to
them tbe Martin vote and they weie
ready witb all kinds of propositions,
none of whiob, however, seemed to
meet the wishes of Mr. Ourtis. The
conference resulted in nothing definite.
Dr. Hall leaves uo room for doubt ns
to the stand he takes in ielation to
Mr.   Martin.
"You can say for me," said the doc
tor to a Miner man yesterday, "thnt 1
am opposed to Joseph Martin as a leader in or out of the House and that I
would not, nnder any circurnatances,
follow^his leadership. So far as his
platform is concerned I am willing to
accept, that in a general way. I am
in thorough sympathy witb tbe greater
part of it, but there are a few planks
whioh I do not altogether agree with.
It is, however, to my mind, a very
good platform. If I were a member of
the Honse, and Mr. Martiu was at the
head of tho Government and at tempi
ad to enact the legislation mapped out
in his plntform I wonld aid bim. So
would I aid a Conservative Govern
ment or any Government with legisla
linn whioh I believed for the benefit of
tho Provinoe. I wonld go to Viotora
not to toar down but to build np.
"Whon Mr. hmitn Curtis waB in
town he oalled upon mo and asked
me where I would stand if I became
a candidate. I told him wbat I tell
you now that I would nover follow
Joseph Martin as a leader bnt would
support biro and bis Government iu
passing legislation whioh I believed
wonld prove beneficial to the Provinoe.
This is tbe position I oocupy. I am
in no sense a Martin candidate, but
am an Independent Liberal candidate." 	
The primary election, held ynstordny
for the election of delegates for a convention of the Provinoinl Party, to
eleot a candidate for tbe election to he
hold in tbo near futnro for a membership in tbe Provincial Honse, was
'instrumental in bringing nut nbont a
thousand voters. There were twenty-
five delegates to be eleoted and thirty-
three names nn  tbe ballot.    Those
whose names wero voted upon nre nB
follows: Alfred Bunker, Stuart G.
Campbell, James Colling, Alex Dow,
P.Fleming, W. A. Gnlliber, John A.
Gibson, James A. Gilker, John Hamilton, Charles Hillyer, Robert Hurry,
John A. Irving. Wnrd Kilpatrick

Gilbert Sluuloy, Fred Stnrkoy, S. S.
Tnylor, W. F, Teelzel, G. J. Thorpe,
O. A. Waterman, P, E. Wilson.
The polls,closed at 8:30 but owing to
the number of ballots deposited and
tbe number of names on eaoh ballot
the count was not gotten through with
last night, only ubout one third of tbe
ballots being verified. Tbo oonnt
will resume this moruiiig.
Charles Hillyer seems to have gone
baok to his lirst love, John Houston.
Either tbis or his uume wus put ou the
Provincial Party primary ticket yesterday without his knowledge A few
weeks ago Mr. Hillyer was Mr. Martin's strongest supporter in this Riding and wns talked of us a Martin
candidate.
(SIN'H l.U, TO TIIK MINER.)
Kaslo, May 10.���Ex-Speaker Forater
found it rather dillicnlt to givo propor
answers to severnl questions which F.
A.Wood, lato of the Last Chance mine,
put to him In regard to the Eight-
Hour law last uight. Wood wanted to
know why the Soiuliu Government
had not made the law apply to men
working in railway tunnels. Forstei
ovaded the answer nud sought to be
saicastie at Woou's expense,but the latter would not statu! nnythiug of that
sort nnd, ns au elector,requested n fair
answer to u fair question. Forster
apoligized anil said if Ibe matter bad
been brought to the attention of tbe
Government something would probably
have been done. He unnouueed himself us nn Eight-Hour man all round,
under and above gronnd also. Magistrate Carney, who was in the chair,
attempted to be sinnrt nt Wood's expense, but got a Roland for his Olivor.
Keen wns last night formally adopted
as the busiuess men's cundidute by the
Conservative oonventiou.

IMPORTANT DECISION.
Elmira, N. Y., May 11.���Judge Cox

V. Olisdell, of Corning, who is uow
locnted^in Toronto, ns sales agent for
a conl company was tho petitioner aud
the oreditor objected to bis discharge

sustuius Referee Moss' ouutuutiou.

wns postponed unitl next Tuesday.

The Oonrt of Assizes was occupied
all dny yesterday in trying Ihe oase of
the Crown vs. Hagler for unulawful
assembly. Tbo Crown waB represented by Mr.   J.   A.   Macdonald  and W.
A. Macdonald, g. O., was for the defendant. The jury in tbe case were a
follows: J. A. Armstrong, foreman;
Alex Carrie, George W. Hale, John
Rae, H. L. Goodevn, George Gurd,
Wm. Waldie, John A.   Dewar,   Frnuk
B. Gibb, Tborburn Allen, John Bluuey
aud Johu T. Fife.
Hagler was accused of having incited and carried out au unlawful assembly of miners at the Payne mine, to
prevent the employment of a lot of
men who were imported into the mine
during the reosnt labor trouble in the
Shican. After the indictment was
read W. A. Macdonald asked that the
case be quashed on the ground that
tbe iudiotmenl wns too indefinite.
C. H. Hand, tbe manager of the
Payne mine, was the first wituess for
the prosecution nnd testified that a
nnmber of men bad been imported
fiom Minnesota to take the place of tho
strikers at tho Pnvue. When they arrived the accused and a number of
miners had cnme out to the mine
witb thu intention of preventing tbe
new mon from going to work. Hagler, as the leader, had beeu very violent
aud used foul language in the presence
of Mr. Hand's wife and mother. Ask
ed to be allowed to address tbe new
men in order to persaude tbem from
goiug to work aud ou being lefused behaved as above described. Said the
mine was doing dirty work and would
get dirty work in return. Thnt there
was imminent danger of a general Ini
jas.
George W. Hughes, manager of the
Idaho, corroborated tbe evidence of
Mr. Hand and suid that bad tne Ian-
gunge beeu addressed to bim theie
would have been a fight. Thut Hagler
was tho leudor of the crowd and behaved most violently. That there
were strong suggestions of a light and
that Hagler kept his baud on his
hip pocket during the altercation.
John Daly, bookkeeper ut the mines,
oorroborated tbe evidence given by the
two proceeding witnesses.
Tbis waB the evidenoe for tbo prosecution and W. A. Macdonald then asked that the caso be withdrawn from
the jury as no evidence of common
purpose hud been given. Mr. Justioe
Drake, declined to grunt thu request
and R. J. McLean tne first witness for
tho defense    was   .idled       He    testified
that tbere was no collusion between
Haglor and tbo rest of tbo men and
alllrmed thut Haglur used vile language but said be was the only one
wbo had anything to say, and that
none of tho other men supported bim
iu any way.
Peter Maodonald, tho next witness,
also gave corroborative evidence and
said tbat thore had been no snggestiuu
of a row of any kind.
Neil Morrison, the next wituess
seemed to fully warrant thu description of "a most gentle youth," applied
to him by the Clown attorney, for he
said that the language used wiih most
vile but not tho sort to provoke a fight
and thnt if addressed to him would not
have been resented.
The prisoner was then pnt on the
stand and testified that he that gone in
his capaoity a% seoretary of the MiuorB
Union to endeavor to preauade tbe
new men from working aud that
tbere bnd been no collusion between
him and the other union men. Did not
deny the Tile language attributed to
him bnt said It was a peisonal thing
altogether. His evidence was a denial
of auy attempt to mnke an unlawful
demonstration.
After argument and the charge by
the Justioe the jury rotired at 6 p. ni.
Thoy were out for three hours before
banding in a vordiot of not guilty.

ANOTHER CAN BID ATE.
Tbe appearance of a third oandldute
for the suffrages of the electors of Nel-
Hin Kul i M" gives a new turn to tho situation, thu rjieoise sirm   i nneo of wbioh
it will be impossible to   estimute   until we  bear   from   Dr    Hall  himself.
As  well   as can   bo  understood,   Mr.
Honston bus been endeavoring to cover
the ground held by  tho Maitin   party,
the Cotton purtv, nnd the Labor purtv ;
Mr. Fletcher is an  avowed   Conservative, nud strongly opposed to tho Mnrtin Government;  we   can   only   wait
to   learn   from   the   thiid    candidate
where he proposes to stand.    We   shall
all agree thnt personally Dr. Mall is an
unexceptionable  candidate��� a mon   ot
high  character,   clean   pnblio record,
and of good intelligence, one  who has
takon a keen interest   in pnhlio affairs
and always for tho public  good.     Tbe
people will require to know more than
this of him, however.    In the respects
mentioned be bns  no  advantage  over
Mr. Fletohor.who iu Provinoinl affairs
is opposed to n Government thnt British Ooiumbia has every cunso toregaid
with apprehension.    His_Conservatism
csn prove no prejudice to tbnt  opposition.    If Dr.   Hnll   merely  intends   to
vary tbis by  giving   tbe   electors  the
oboico of a straight Liberal Oppositionist, tbere   will   be  very   gravo  doubt
whether it   is   worth   whilo.   Such   a
course would lie intelligible if the Liberals as a pnrty were milking   a light,
but it is not understood they nre doing
this.   However,   we   sbnll    doubtless
have^a better understanding of the sit-
nntii'ii in a day or two.
Mr. Cliffe has asked Thu Miner for
space in which to explain aud defend
his coiineetioti with tho Slocan voters'
lint appeals. His letter is rather long
for our columns ; but having sulferod
tho loss of his own printing ollice, he
is obliged to nppeul for a hearing
though some nthei channel, uud we
gladly put Tbu Miuer   nt bis   service
not bn there, nnd   I   objected   to some
.ion or oon of tbem, At once a charge of
"whniesnlB disfranchisement1' wus
rnised in everv corner of the country,
umpired bv interested parties in Knslo.
Iu looking into the law, I concluded
it was not evident that a name should
be knocked oil' the list while it wns
known the party waa u resident of
the Province. 1 then withdrew about
2(10 of mv otijections, advised the
Collector of vot.is nt Kaslo to cancel
my objections to nny names of moil
tbat he had any reliabio information
were entitled to he on the list, aud
throngh the Mining Review announced 1 was willing to tak3 the information of any reliable parties nnd ounce!
objections on their recommendation.
This surely   did   not   look  much   like
���'Wholesalo disfranchisement."    The
Collector in the meantime notified all
parties objected, und I presume cancelled the objections to all wbo responded to his notices, as I had asked
hi in to do.
With all tbis dono there stood at the
Court of Revision on tho 8th some 200
of my objections on file. As I read the
Htntuto tne Collector ia expected to
tuko some supervision of tbe, list himself; bnt Mr. Kurtz says the law does
not ezaot anything of the kind of him
���his duty is simply^to listen to evidence in appeals, ami act from tho evidence.
As a result there were names of Knslo men dead for years, repeats for
years, nnd men out of the country for
years, nnd aliens on tbo Kuslo list ut
revision. But now for tho rulings.
J guve evidence against a certain
I name ou the list, to tho fact that
| three of the best known and most re-
! sponsible men in thut town hnd told
me the mnn hnd left the couutry
yours ngo, that ho wns not here to vots
two years ago. Tbo Collector then,
sago like, asked mo if I know whether
or uot the man was going to return.
I was told by bis brotherin-lnw, Mr.
T. MoGuigan, that P. A. Brady, as-
sayer of Cody, hnd gone to the States to
reside, and I wns ngniu asked if I
knew whether or not he was going to
return. Because then I did not know
of theso men, wbat most probably
they wonld not know of themselves
tbeir intent ions as to the future, that
philosophic jurist, tho Kuslo Colleotor,
ruled tho names should remain on the
voters' list nud as the Tribnue correspondent puts it, "Cliffe was turned
down." It appears to me tbnt if that
is even horso sense there would be no
trouble iu the ape of Australia turning
down Sir Isaao Newton. Mr. Green
himself told me of a former Kaslo
man who is now an aldermnn in Vancouver being still ou the Slocan voters'
list. Now, with all due respect to
the legnl attainments of the Slocan
Collector, the philosophio discernment
of The Tribune's Kuslo correspondent
nnd the wisdom of the wiseacres who
foresaw in my aotion an intention to
disfranchise by the wholesale, I submit
it was never intended by nny man who
hnd any hand in drafting our election
laws that suoh names should remain
on tho Slocan list, aud there aro hundreds of them iu the same relation.
Universal or manhood suffrage
sounds nice in the month of nn unprincipled candidate iu an election contest,
but uniler n law interpreted as the
Slocan Collector interprets it, it is a
fraud nf the first water.
Mr. Martin,    tho   Premier,    for   instance, sayB be is going to build a railway tn Midway at n cost   of   probably
18,000,000, nnd   if tbat  does  not give
the people tho  competition they   wmit
he will parallel the   entire   system   of
the Province  to  secure  it  and  then
tux tho people for tho  cost.   Men who
hnve uo voteB cnn come into   tho   Slocan by   the   buudrod   from   nnywbero
nnd     personnte    the severnl   hundred
dead men and   absentees  on  our   list,
bocnuse   it canuot bo shown   they   are
net going to retorn,   and eloct   candidates who aro   fnvornble   to   Martin's
railway building.    They wbo have not
a cent of interest in the conntry,   who
become elecors by fraud or by   stuffing
ns Mr. Houston does it,   onn   force  nil
his railway debt and   railway taxntion
on the bona fide residents of tho ooon-
try, then laugh at thoir smartness nnd
leuvo for pastures new.    Does any sane
man believe the  Province can  prosper
under   such   conditions?   We   have  a
country of  great  resources if proporly
handled;   but   it   nppears   to  me it is
now nt a jnnc.ture in whioh it requires
men of  Bolidity,   ballast   nnd   brains,
ana not ndventurers  at   the   head  of
ulFairs.    Men who will give us a   proper franchise act   who  will  strive  to
palliate  differences between  sects nud
daises, nllay   irritntions betwen enpi
tnl   nnd   labor iustead   of intensifying
them and   instead of seeking  eleotion
fnr  personal    glorification  and
will be sought for bv the   j-eople,

-'*: NELSON DAILY MINER, FRIDAY, MAY
IQOO.
ADJOURNED   TILL   MONDAY,
Motion ol Prohibition to Collector
Wright Not Disposed ot Yesterday,
The motion for nn order to prohibit
Hurry Wiight, Oolleotor of Vot3n, for
thie Hiding, from putting nn Iho voters' list "l0 I"",U,B ��l those applicants
objected to, cnme np before Mr. Justioe Drake yeRter-luy morning, and, after partial argument was again adjourned.
Mr. H. M. Maodonald appeared in
jopport of the motion and Mr, 8. H
Taylor ou behalf of the Oolleotor op-
posed it. Borne preliminary objootions
wiire taken by Mr. Taylor to the proceedings all of wbioh were overruled
bnt oue, aa to which judgment: waa reserved. It waa argued (bat lliu Crown
Ollleu Rules required that an application for prohibition Hhould be by sum-
inona nnd not by notice of motion,
which latter was the prooeodiire adopted in this cnae. Mr. Macdonald in do-
fending his proceed urn argued thai
application" of thia nature wore governed hy the Rules ot tho Supreme
Court relating to civil proceedings
and not by the Crown Ollice Kulos.
These latter, it waa urged, worn promulgated under the provisions of the
Criminal Code of Canada and conld
only apply to oriniinal matters, whereas the Supreme Court Rules were
framed under Provincial .authority to
regulate civil proceednro und therefore
should be foi low-id iu tho present case.
The Supreme Court Rule dealing with
tbe matter impliedly directs that proceedings should bo by notice of motion. Hia Lordship, in reserving his
judgment on the poiut, remarked that
it looked as though tho two methods
of prooeedure wero inconsistent. Upon tho merits of tlio caso Mr. Macdonald argued that tbe Court of Revision
had no jurisdiction to deal with the
matter of I earing objections 10 names
going on the list; this court beiug only
authorized to strike tiamea oil the list.
Upon the conclusion ol Mr. Maodonald's argument the caso was adjourned
to Monday next at 10 o'clock a. m.,
when, if necessary. Mr. Taylor's argument ou the merits will be heaid.

Tbe losses in this Oompany for its

tho guests. He assured them that tbe
people of Nelaon were always pleased
to welcome visitors from other parts
of the Prcvinco and to give them as
good a time aB possible. He was not, he
said, a member of any order himself,
and had only onco in bis life joined
oue. He thought the name of that our
was the Independent Order of Sons of
Temperance. Home one suggested the.
Mayor had made a mistake and asked
him if it wasn't tbe Good Templars be
hmd joined. "Thnt's it," said the
Mayor, "The Indepdeudeut Order of
Good Templars, bnt I only stayed witb
thern for a little while." H. J. Ansty
and Chancellor 13ing, ot the Grand
Lodge replied for tbe visitors and
thanked the Nelson Lodge for their
hearty welcome antl tlio Mayor for Ins
kind expressions. Dl. (juinlnn supplemented the Mayor's address of wel-
oome with a short speech and Chancellor Commander Sooley of thu Nelson
Lodge expressed the pleasuro it afforded the local Pythiaus to have with
them their brother Pythiaus from
other parts of tho Province. During the
banquet Herr V. Steiuer'n orchestra
rendered several selections which were
heartily enjoyed. At the couolusion
of tbe banquet the visitors boarded a
street car, which was placed at tbeir
disposal by tbe Tramway Company,ond
were taken over tho company's lines.
All of the guests wero very much
pleased with the progressive air of
Nelson.
