Rousing Fletcher Meeting at
Opera House Last
Night.
The Three Candidates Ad
dress the Electors of
Nelson.
W.
A.  Macdonald   Delivers
a  Most  Eloquent
Address.
The meeting held nt the Oporn House
last evening iu the interests nf Mr.
Frank Fletcher was very largely attended and was one of the most orderly politioal meetings ever held in N.��� I -
Bon. The three candidates Mr. Frank
Fletoher, Dr. Hall nnd Mayoi Houston
sud W. A. Maodonuld delivered addresses and all were given splendid
bearings and were enthuiaaticnlly re-
I,  I'liivnd. John    Toye    was    chair
man, aud a most acceptable one.
Mr. Fletcher opened, nud began
with a history of the Province politically during the pnst two yeais and
ending with the selection hy the Lien-
tsnant-Govornor of Joseph Mm tin to
form a government Mr. Martin was
���milled, Mr.Fletoher said, against tbe
wishes of the people of the Province,
and when he was without n follower
in tbe honse. He had to go into the
by-ways nnd hedges to seek the men
who now form his govurnmeut, nud it
wus by these men tbe Provinoe wns
being governed to-day. Tbe speaker
referred to it as a sqnatter government
and prophesied that on the lltb dny of
June Mr. Martin's right and title to
the offloe he now holds wonld be forever destroyed. Mr. Fletoher expressed
the opinion that bnt for Mi. Mnrtin
the present campaign wonld have been
conducted on party lines. Mr. Mnrtin
had, split the the Liberal ptirty and u
majority had refused to follow him.
It was not his platform they objected
to, bnt they objeoted to the man himself.
Mr. Fletoher then briefly referred to
his opponeuts iu the present fight
There wns no questior, he Biiid, as to
where Mr. Houston stood, but it was
hard to find out just where Dr. I lull
stood. Mr. Houston was the enndidate
of the Provincial Parly. By Mr. Houston's own figures there were but 15
Provincial P. rty candidates in tho field.
Of these 15 meu only three were well
known throughout tbe Provinoe, Fots-
ter, Cotton and Kidd. Suppose nil ot
the Provincial Party candidates were
eleoted, Mr. Fletcher asked, could they
form a Government wheu the House
oonsiBted of 38 members? On the other
hand, the speaker pointed ont, there
were .38 Conservative candidates vitb
the chanceB veiy niiioh iu favor of the
election ^of a majority of Ihem, and
therefore a Conservative Government.
Mr. Fletcher poinled out the atlriuitigo
of electing ono who would be n member
of the party in power nnd of tbo eleclion
ot men who would set together nud give
lo the Provinoe a stablo Government
Referring to Dr. Hull. Mr. Fletoher
siiiil he was running ns nn Independent
Liberal. He hnd been inferred to nt
times as being a Mnrlin cumlidi.te but
Mr. Fletcher said ho hnd not been nblo
to Inenli" him. Ah the doctor wns to
speak later, however, he expressed tbe
hops that be would be able to locate
himself.
Mr. Fletcher then referred to the
eight-hour law. It hnd been brought
Into the House nnd passed before anyone knew anything of it, nnd all of
the damage arising from it had been
done because the Government hnd not
the courage to enforce it. If it had
been enforced at the time provided
ill its passage there would have been
little trouble, the speaker believed,
and the country would not have suffered'ny It as it had. Mr. Houston
has accused him, Mr. Fletcher said.
of Insincerity In connection with his
expressions In regard to tills law.
This, he claimed, Mr. Houston had
no right to do. He had taken the
stand that when this Act was put
upon the statute books It should have
been accepted and the men put to
work under the best conditions possible to arrange. But the eight-hour
law was no longer an issue. There
was no set of men, the speaker believed, who would be foolish enough to
attempt to touch the lnw or the penalty clause. If a good, sound Government) were elected, Mr, Fletcher expressed the belief that there would be
no further occasion for labor troubles
of any kind. Provision could be
made for amicable settlement of all
disputes between labor and capital
uiul no Qovernment could refuse to
deal with the laboring man, when he,
the laboring man, believed he was
not securing his just deserts.
Referring to the Chinese and Japan
ese labor question, Mr. Fletcher said
there was another nationality equally
objectionable. He referred to the Italians who came to make whatever
money tbey could nt any wage, and to
take thnt mouey out of the country.
He believed that legislation iu this regard wns equally as desirable as legislation nlfeoting the Chinese and Japanese. If elected he promised to do his
best towards having tiails aud camps
looked after, anil when a prospect
showed the earmarks of a mine he believed Unit assistance should bo given
towards its development in the way of
roads and trails.
At the conclusion of bis remarks Mr.
Fletoher was loudly applauded.
Dr. Hall was next introduced by
Chninuan Toye and was given a very
good reception. He referred to the
event which led to his announcing
himself a candidate and showed that
be never bad, us aocused by Mr.
Honston, been turned down by the
Liberal Party.
"I am willing now" said Dr. Hall,
to hnve a Liberal convention culled
in this city, and to go before it as a
candidate aud if I am not endorsed I
will withdraw and forfeit my $20o deposit, provided Mr. Houston will withdraw if 1 am endorsed.
This statement wus received with
prolonged applause, but wus not responded to by Mr. Houston. Dr. Hall
then attacked the rooord of the Turner
Government, with whioh party he
said Mr. Fletoher now claimed affiliation. He referred also to bis introdnn
tion in the city council of the nine-
lioiir resolution for city work.
At the conclusion of Dr. Hall's address, Mr. W. A. Galliher, who was in
the audience, asked leave to ask the doctor a  question aud this was granted.
"Dr. Hall," began Mr. Galliher, "I
want to ask you, if when the House
meets and a vote of want of confidence
in tbe Martin Government is introduced, how you will vote."
"If when the House met and I was s
member of that House," replied Dr.
Hull, "and Mr. Martin bad 10 votes on
such a resolution I would vote to give
him an opportunity to carry on the'
legislation outliued in his platform,
tint if be swerved an inch from what
he has promised I would be the first
man to vote ngainst him."
Mr. Hail's answer satisfied at least
the Hall men in the audience and Mr.
Galliher did not press the question
further.
Mr. Houston wsb then introduced
and his friends ill the audience gave
him a very warm welcome. Ho defended the Provincial Party and
claimed for it men with as much intelligence as could be found ln any
of the other several parties, and men,
who, if elected, would be able to do
as much for the Province and their
respective constituencies as would
members of any other parties. He
prophesied that after June II not 30
days would elapse before both Joseph
Martin and Lieutenant Governor Mc-
Innis would be shorn of their power
nnd relegated to private life. In referring to the matter of advertaing
the Province in the old country, Mr.
Houston said he would not do that
but would udvertise it in Canada.
"Canadian companies are better for
this Province," said Mr. Houston,
"than English OOmpanles. It takes
the average old countryman about ten
years to make up bis mind that British Columbia Ih a good country to
live in."
At the conclusion of Mayor Houston's
remarks, Mr. W. A. Maodonald was introduced. Mr. Mocdonald's speeoh was
the speeoh of the evening. The speaker
wns eloquent and convincing and when
he concluded he was loudly cheered. He
advocated party lines in Provincial politics rs the only remedy for the ills
whioh this Proviuce had fallen heir to
during the pnst few yearB. He pointed
out to tho audience that their interests
could in no way be sorved by tho election either of Dr. Hall or Mr. Houston,
bnt that only through the election of
Mr. Fletcher nud a mnjortty of those

to bring the stowaways back to Nelsou. At the same time he notified the
Provincial Police of the matter, and
when the barge arrived at the slip
here Chief Constable Bullock-Webster

arrest. They gave the names of James
Wren, Johu Purdy and Bernard Ryan.

barge without, paying their fare.
The Dominion Railway Act is very
severe upon offenders of this class.

to withdraw the prosecution. The
Magistrate, with whom was associated
Mr. E. J. Mnllandiiinc, J. P., of

to the men and told them that If ever
they came before him again on the
same charge lie would give them the
extreme penalty provided by the Act.

for their leniency and left the court
greatly relieved.

Transvaal Capital Is

Ottawa, May Sl.���Tho Prime Minister, who is the exooutivo head of the
North West Mounted Police mBde n
statement of the condition of the foroe
todny, which waa oonsidored very satisfactory. The impression has been
that owing to the recruiting for South
Afrioa, the Btrength and effioienoy of
tbe force has been impaired. This is
not so.
"Lust year there were," said
Sir Wilfrid, "In the territories 500
mounted police, at present thero nro
547 men, exclusive of officers. Owing
to ths war in South Africa 18 officers
and 100 men left the force but in spite
of this by careful rcoruiting wo have
47 men moro than last year. In tbe
Yukon last year there was u forco of
260 men, owing to tho war and men
leaving for the mines there are now
about 175 meu there. This iu not a
normal force and there will bo an inoreased number kept there in future.
The amount wo ire asking for the

same as last year. This is 8700 a year

is not larga."

Since those telegrams left Wednesday nothing has reached Lorenzo by telegraph from Pretoria. Possibly the
wires have been cut, although Ihe Wnr
Ollice has uot received a wo.d nl.,ml it.
No one iu London harbors tho idea tbat
tbe Boer cnpital is not already in the
hands of the British or about to be
there.
The possession of Johannesburg at
all accounts, as Lord Roberts has telegraphed, is a fact, states Attorney
Smith did not depart with President
Kruger but remained in Pretoria.
The present seat of the Boer Govern-
���tent, according to a despatch from
Lorenzo Marques, is probably shifted
further east.
The Boers lately confronting Lord
Roberts appear to have gone east,
also toward the Lydenburg region.
The defenders of Laings Nek when,
their position becomes too warm, will
probably go straight north. When
this concentration takes place there
will be twenty thousand men out, for
a time, with scattered bunds of guerillas also,
Ths despatches from tho headquarters
of Lord Roberts give an estimate us

RobertB alone. The principal losses
in the fighting have been sustained by
the monnted infantry, bnt the casualties are trifling.

<WrWlrVrVUVW/lUW^V<��
" In our opinion," says The New
Denver Ledge���and a very good
opinion it would seem to be���
John Keen is the best man ever
put forward to represent the Slocan
it Victoria. He is a surveyor by
profession, and knows how and
where trails and roads should be
made. He has had many years
experience as a Government official,
and was strong enough two years
ago to hold his position when the
poils system was epidemic. He
has no store to pull trade to, and
would not allow sectional feeling to
interfere with his duty to the entire
community." A good man to
elect.
What can Nelson possibly hope
to gain by the election of Mr.
Houston ? The candidates of his
party, all told, number but nine,
and if all were elected, which is an
impossibility, they could neither
form a Government nor influence a
Government. Mr. Houston would
be left to kick up his heels in Opposition, and though the occupation
might prove an agreeable one to
himself, there would be little profit
in it for his constituency. Mr.
Fletcher is the candidate of the
winning side, and we would be foolish not to elect him with the circumstances as they are.
We should not like to say that
Mr, Houston is bad at all, and it
pains us to hear him admit that he
is in the declaration that he is not as
bad as his enemies claim. It is not
a question of badness, however, or
of virtue or of purity. Just now
what we have to consider is whether it would be a wise act on our
part to elect him to the Legislature,
The election of a Legislature is a
matter of business, of the extremely
practical sort. For it depends a
good deal on the Legislature whether the business affairs of the Province run smoothly and to the advantage of the people. For too long a
time there has been a condition of
disturbance which has operated
most prejudicially to the public interests. This disturbance was
caused by an agitation in which
Mr, Houston took a conspicuous
part, and there is very grave doubt
whether his election would tend to
allay it. There is serious apprehension, indeed, that it would have
the opposite effect, and for that reason the wiser heads of the constituency have come to the conclusion
that it will he better to leave Mr.
Houston out and elect Mr. Fletcher.
They prefer Mr. Fletcher because of
the knowledge that he is with the
steadier clement of the Province,
those who want political rest and
industrial prosperity.
In exposing Mr. Houston's wholesale appropriation of candidates in
order to swell the list of P. P.'s,
The Miner in each case accepted
the classification made in Mr. Cotton's own paper, The News-Advertiser, of Vancouver. According to
this list, made by the leader himself, there are ten P. P. candidates
all told. Rut he claims Mr. Neill,
of Alherni, who declares that he is
running as an Independent Liberal,
the same as Dr. Hall in Nelson.
If, however, Mr. Houston knows
more about Mr. Cotton's party
than Mr. Cotton himself there is
nothing more to be said, even
should hr claim Mr. Turner as a
Cottonite.
Mr. Houston is in the happy position of being his own reporter,
and when he goes abroad he has no
difficulty in finding lousing meetings to address. If they do not
present themselves in the flesh, it is
easy to produce them in his mind,
and his paper will do the rest, At
Creslon the other day he had the
whole countryside with him ; there
was not a man to say nay to his
principles or to his pretensions.
When the returns of the voting come
back it will be interesting to observe the discrepancies between the
ballots and the claims of the reporter.    	
Mr. Green says Mr. Houston
would be a creditable representative. Perhaps he would be; but
that was not the opinion of Mr.
Ralph Smith, who went away from
Nelson the other day with the expressed conviction that Mr.
Houston would be a very difficult
man to get   along with at Victoria.

Mr. Smith Curtis is already one
of the deadest ducks in the Province. Hia Portage la Prairie experience never permitted him to
realise what it was to run up against
a man like Mr. Mackintosh, and the
shock of the discovery has been too
much for him.
Tliere are exactly nine Cotton
candidates in all the constituencies
of the Province, of whom two, and
possibly three, may be elected.
Among the defeated Mr. Cotton himself will be one and Mr. John Houston will be  another.
Mr. Houston protests that he
is not as bad as his enemies say lie
is. That is the best the unhappy
Mr. Martin can say of himself, and
it is not B very great deal, is it?
If you have not yet made Mr.
Fletcher your choice of candidates,
lind resolved to vote for him as the
salcM man for Ihe place, it is about
lime you did. The election will be
held on Saturday of next week.
Mr. John R. Cosligun writes The
Miner to say that the report that lie
was nominated as a Conservative
is a campaign lie, circulated for the
purpose of injuring him.

MONEY FLOWING IN
A. H. Buchanan and Grange V. Holt arc
Hard at Work.
Messrs. A. H. Buolianan nnd Grnngo
V. Holt, respectively chairman of the
Carnival general committee and finance committee, have raised up to
date $2,225. This is tho result of the
labor of two days and does not cover
all that it is hoped will be available.
Several of the business men have not
been seen and others have deferred
���iibsoribiiig until a later date.
On Monday that portion of Ihe public which will not be visited by Messrs
".noli muni and Holl will be given opportunity to subscribe any amount from 50
cunts upwards. In each of the four
banks and in tho Miner and Tribune
offices subscription lists will bo opened
and those who feel thut Ihe big demon*
striifioo will afford them ilfly cent's or
one dollar's worth of pleasure are expected to drop in aud aid in the creation of a fund of sutllcient magnitude
tj carry out all of the plans of tho
various committees. If there are,
however, any people in the city who
would like to donate and who contemplate going away or nre afraid they
may be broke on Monday, opportunity
will be provided them to make their
deposits today as the newspaper offices
and hanks will be open. They will be
open tomorrow also. But the big move
will be made Monday and each of the
four bunks aud two newspaper olllcts
will use every effort to swell the fund.
The Miner staff has bet the Tribute
staff that there will be more money
taken in at the Miner office than nt the
Tribune office nud it behooves the
friends of the Miner to "get a move
on."
The following is the list of donations

In conversation with a court official
yesterday a Miner man learned that in
the election of 1870 there were only
.seventeen recorded voters iu the whole
district now comprising East and
West Kootenay, who returned two
members to the Legislative Assembly.
At present in the same district there
are about 12,000 voters. In South
Kootenay alone there were ut the last
election about 430 voters. For the
coming election there are about 1,700
on the voters' liBt. The comparison
is interesting in showing the great
growth of the Kootenay country.
At the Mining Recorder's Office
yesterday the following records were
made: Transfers���lllend, Emperor,
St. Mary and Ella from John Swansou
to Frank Dick for a nominal consideration. From Charles A. Swanson to
Frank Dick, the Port Natal and
Ling claims for a nominal consideration. From Katie McCoy to James
II. Hume, in the Little Joe claim a
sixth interest for a nominal consideration. From S. M. Brydges, a third
interest iu the Kingston claim to T.
J. Sims for a nominal consideration.

Party must appeal to other and
higher considerations than those of individual fear of loss, or hope of gain.
I oonaider it the duty of every member
elected, to be a ProviucialiBt to the extent of the best interests of the Province
first, last and always, and to support all
good legislation with that objeot in view
In asking you for your support, I will
state that I. am opposed to hasty legislation of nny kind, but particularly with
respect to our Mining Laws, as tending
to jeopardize business interests and to divert oapital: for instance, twioe the Legislature has passed Alien Exclusion
Laws and they are now for the Becond
time seeking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief: ami damage.
With regard to the Eight-Honr Law, I
am opposed to any change in the law
as it now stands. Shorter hours for all
classes of labor is no new idea, but in
my opinion the prinoiple should be suoh
as to appeal to all Sections of the Community as being not only a necesBity and
beneficial to all, but in keeping with the
general advance meat of onr civilization.
I wonld ndvooate the amendment nnd
strict enforcement of the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, so as to more effectually proteot the lives of workmen.
With regard to the Mineral Act: I
would endeavor to have certain Bections
more dearly deflued, for the purpose of
avoiding litigation ; and with regnrd to
oo-ownership, to introduce nn inexpensive and speedy mode ct making a co-
owner bear bis share ot assessment or
relinquish hia interest.
I am in favor of an amendment to our
Bohool Laws bo as to give Cities the control of the Schools in their midst.

wherever suoh will upbuild and develops
our Provinoe, more especially in the

systematic way.

���vvvs*rVvvvvNrWiA**rv��rVVVv*2
Equal Rights and Eight
Hours for all.
Gentlemen, ���In response to numerously signurl requisitions asking mu to
bo a candidate for the Provincial Legislature at the fortbeomiug eleotion, I
have consented to enter the contest as
un Independent Liberal.
I have the honor, therefore to solicit
ynur votes and influenoe, and if elected I slial I do my utmost to seoure for
tho Provinco honest, economical and
progressive government.
A brief outline of some of the principles which I think Bhould be embodied iu the Legislative Aots is given
below.
I have the honor to be gentlemen,
Your obedieut servant,
G. A. B. HALL.
1. Tho priuciple of eight hours constituting a legal day's work should be
recognized and strictly enforced.
2. Steps    Bhould    immediately   bo
taken through   the proper  channels to
previut  tho  immigration    into   this
country of Chinese and Japanese labor
era.
a. Two dollars and a half per day
should be tho minimum wage of unskilled labor throughout the Province
on all government works.
4. A fail wage bill should be introduced requiring the payment of standard wages on all works to which tbe
Provinoe contributes subsidies or aid
in any form.
5. The establishment of a labor
bureau under tho direction of a Minister of the Crown, whose duty it shall
be among other things, to collect labor
statistics, and   to act   as   a   mediator

between employers and workmen in
all oaseB of actual or threatened
strikes with power to call and examine witnesses and compel disclosure
of all material facts in connection
with suoh disputes.
(i. I believe that trunk roads should
be built and maintained by tho 'government and encouragement given to
miuers to extend those roads. Such
work should ba directed by competent
government engineers, Where trails
are required to single or small groups
of olaime the cost of such trails, if
built by the claim owners on the approval and under direction of a government inpsector or engineer, shall
apply as  assessment  upon the claims.
7. Government ownership of all
telograph systems anil railways where
practicable by construction or purchase.
S. The establishment of technical
schools   for   metalIfleroOB   miners   in

points in the Province.
I). To draw tbe attention of capitalists aud investors to British Columbia
as a desirable centre for profitable
mining operations by snitable advertisement and by the nppointment of
n special agent at London and elsewhere whose services shall be free and
equally available for all owners of
British Columbia properties.

settlers or for boun fide business or industrial purposes, thus putting nn end
to tho prnctioo of speculating in the
same.
12. The taking of active measures
for the systematic oxploration of the
Province, including a government survey of tho province by sections and
tho preparation of accurate and cheap
maps in accordance with such   survey.
Vi. Tbo interests of the Province
oan be best served by a permanent
civil service, appointments to which
should be made by reason of merit nnd
not of political influence.
14. All unoccupied lands in the Province should bo open to bona fide settlers at fair prices which shall be decided npon by a government land agent
or valuator, and better laoilities should
be given for acquiring small areas for
establishment of market gardens and
homestoads.
15 Whore mineral claims are held
by joint owners and where one or
more of such owners refuses to contribute towards the nnnunl assessment
work, provision should be made in the
Mineral Act for the sale of the in-
i terest of such delinquent  owner.
in. The abolition of the deposit by
oandidates for tbe 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
aud Capital, to whom all disputes
between Labor and Capital will be
submitted.
The  establishment  of a
Labor Bureau,
���A*iAA��WS>V*A>VAArV��*AA*AA*S��
oould only find ten oandidates to take
the field in its interests, notwithstanding that it bad appropriated
every plank it found, sound or rotten |
it made no difference to men in desperate straits. Besides all sorts of
political nostrums, sugar-coated, were
carefully prepared and dealt out to be
swallowed by a gullable public. They
won't take .lobn! The electorate
know that the alleged Provincial
Party has not a ghost of a chance.
The,, few candidates in the field will
realize on the 9th of June that a
political cyclone struck them.
  t
Mr. Houston told in his paper yesterday morning that there were 300
men present at the meeting held in
the Houston committee rooms Wednesday evening. This statement is
on a par with ninny other statements
contained in The Tribune from day
to day. There were less than half of
mill present at the meeting and a large
number of tbem were men whose
names are not upon the voters' list.
POLITICS
Continued from First Pago.
who of the same party could
the Province be given stable government and regain the confidence of the
outside world. He showed that if
elected,Dr. Hall or Mr. Houston would
be with a small minority and would
not be in position to do tor the province
or the Riding what could he done by
Mr. Fletcher who would be a member
of the party in power. He appealed to
his auditors to lay aside personal
friendships and to cast their ballots for
the man whose election would best
serve the interests of the proviuce and
the Nelson R;ding.
With three cheers for the Queen the
meeting adjourned.
The Miner has laid down the dictum that .Mr. Fletcher is the''only
candidate who has shown himself to
be alive to tbe situation" and that
"he is in sympathy with the men
who will be in the majority in the
Legislature and who will be actuated
by the same sentiments as himself. "
It is time the electors of this riding
aroused themselves and asked i "What
is the situation," and next, "what
arc the .sentiments of Mr. Fletcher."
To read the list of nominees for the
Province and notice the significant
gaps and carefully "stuffed gaps" in
the different columns, it is plainly
evident that moves are being made on
the political chess board of this Province that are worthy of the professional bands that are playing them.
The deep laid scheme is simply this,
that where a Labor candidate, a
Provincial Party man or a Liberal
can lie played against a Martinite. it
is being done in the expectation that
while these different factions cut
each others throats a Conservative or
a Turnertte may be slipped into office.
A signed and sealed agreement exists
between the Conservative and Turner
crowds that the two parties will join
hands anil unite to overthrow any
opposition from the disjointed ranks
that may oppose them, How many of
the electors of West Kootenay want
to see tin- Turner Party returned to
power? Mr. Fletcher's sympathies
are with 11 to be" coalition government. His backers are nearly all
opposed to ihe Eight-Hour law and
this said law is one that the Turner
Government absoluely refused to legislate on. The same may be said on
Ihe subject of Chinese and Japanese
exclusion, Mr. Fletcher speaks tremblingly .J the ������deplorable agitation"
that might ensue if this matter is
pushed to a decided termination.
Thus we see that bis sympathies are
strongly with the parties who "will
be ill the majority in tbe House," or
rather who he earnestly hopes, will
be in the majority. Not only has
this plan of the Conservative Party a
Provincial significance but also a
Dominion. The coming expected Fall
elections are to be Influenced by the
struggle   of  June   the   nth,   and   tbe
return of Mr. Fletcher to represent
this constituency means lending, it
may be a blind, but a willing hand
in the furtherance of the wide extended scheme of the Conservative
party throughout tbe Dominion. Tbe
return of Mayor Houston, a Conservative at heart, to the same position,
puts the power in'his not unwilling
bands to do just as he pleases, regardless of his party's wishes if it came
to this great issue. Dr. Hall's position as an Independent-Liberal gives
bim carte blanche to affiliate himself
with any party in power that by p o
per legislation will bring a reign of
prosperity and progression to this
Province.
Mr. Houston insists in putting
Ralph Smith in tbe Provincial Party
list in spite of denials from tbat
gentleman himself. Mr. Smith distinctly stated in his very eloquent
address in Nelson tbat he was not a
member of any party and did not intend to act with any party. He was
an Independent Labor candidate, be
said, and as such, if elected, would
seek to aid tbe laboring man in tbe
matter of legislation. He was most
emphatic in his assertion that the
laboring man could host serve his Interests by voting for a strictly Independent candidate. The laboring man
did not want a man to represent bim
who was in any way tied up with any
parly. He must be free to act as he
saw fit and with whioh ever party
seemed Inclined tn best care fur the
interests of the people he represented.
Mr. Houston is a Provincial Parly
man, tied hand and foot to Mr. Cotton, and bound to act, If elected, with
tbe <'ot ton men who nre elected to the
next House. Mr. Fletcher is an out
and out parly line Conservative and
in the event of his election would
line up with bis party, lie does not
run even as an Independent Conservative. He is, too, the nominee of the
capitalists and the men who have
been most strenuously opposed to the
Bight-Hour law and cannot surely
claim now the friendship of the men
who have benefitted liy the enactment
of that law. There is but one candidate in   the Nelson rilling   who is all
that Mr. Smith claimed would make
the best friend of tbe workingman.
Tbat candidate is Dr. Hall. He is
strictly independent, belongs to no
party and owes allegiance to no man.
Be will, if elected, be in a better
position to serve the interests of the
working class and all other classes
than either Mr. Fletcher or Mr.
Houston, lie is the man Mr. Smith
referred to and those who are inclined
to follow the advice of Mr. Smith
must support Dr. Hall, and* they will
do it, and so effectively that on the
evening of June (I both Mr. Houston
and Frank Fletoher will find themselves at the bottom of the count.
John Houston said some time ago,
"that he had always helped the Conservative Party." There is nothing
strange about that. It was tbe party
he belonged to. Why did he not stay
with it? Simply because tbey bail
not risen to bis grand idea of government���ONE MAN RULE. If tbe Czar
of Russia only knew that a man of
such advanced conceptions of government could be bad be would send for
him at once and appoint bim Governor of Siberia where be would have a
good Held for tbe promulgation of bis
ideas. John would like to rule over
serf's but "Britons never shall be
slaves." .lobn did nol find the material he wauled to work- on in tin" Conservative Parly so he conceived tbe
idea of a new parly to be composed of
the recalcitrants of all parties ami
with ibis nucleus went out on the
commons   to   look    for Ihe wandering
mies wiib no political home, in whom
be offered protection, Yes, "snob
protection as vultures give to lambs,
covering and devouring them." lie
seeks now by every possible means lo
obtain tbeir voles In advance libs own
political asperations, Well later on
Cotton came along looking for a man
after his own heart anil finding John
said: "Follow me, I have a great
scheme. My party is to be known as
the Provincial Parly. That will take
fine. We will sweep the country."
Portfolios no doubt were arranged
and John took in Cotton with all his
planks. But the nomination day
came and the alleged Provincial Party
