soon sqneloh this. It will probably
scarcely need squelching, however. It
will evaporate. Tho work ot guarding conininnioatious is not lilted by
uny one, but it should bo remembered
that the greater pnrt of the (Jape Garrison artillery have been at Capo Town
uter Hinoo the war began. That the
work of guarding the lino is entrusted
to the Duke of Edinburgh's Own Regiment and other capable bodiea of
Capo Colony Volunteers, while Canadians, Australians, New Zoaldanders
and other Colonials have beeu sent np

that wo will not be long on the lines

Toronto, Out., April I!!.���The Globe
this evening contains a letter from
.lohn A. Ewan, its correspondent with
the Second Contingent. It is dntod
Victoria Wost Road, Cape Colony,
Murcb I :ib. He thus describes tlio
place anil nature of tho work iissignori
the men. "Hero we are, that is, the
whole of tbe troops who come out on
tlm Laurentian nnd the Pomoranian,
more than 100 niileg eaat of De Attr.
One battery nnder Major Hurdmau,
accompanied by Cnptaiu Eaton and
Lieutenants McCrao, Van Tnyle nnd
Morrison, and a squadron of the
Mounted Rifles, under Major Howe,
have already left the line of the railway and gone towards Carnarvon.
The objeot is quite evident. The district into which tbey nre going is on
the edge of the rebellious country, of
which Prieska, Brittstown and Dong-
liis are the centers. The Australian
ond New Zeulund commands havo hoen
sent a little further north, with the
idea of getting across to tbe disturbed
ilistriota on thoir northeast border.
This move will somewhat disturb tbe
gentry, who have taken the warpath.
Colonel Henhniei and the remainder
of the Mounted Infantry will move
oat towards Carnarvon this afternoon
uud the battery which nrrived in tbe
"mall hours of the morning will probably follow tomorrow."
After describing the disappoiutmout
of the men that their present work is
hot of a more active oharnoter, Kwan
goes on to say :
"The importance of tbeir mission in
this diBtriot can therefore be readily
nuderntood. Even if not a shot is
fired, our presence being all the more
needed to overnwe the rebels, important service to the men at tbe front will
liave been effected. There are said to
be 3,000 rebels with twr guns, but
bow such a body is pnlng to ammimi

Of Ladysmith have changed the whole
situation nnd left this isolated rebellions party not off from everything,

London, April 18.���The British Governmont stands ready to take the part
of Portngal in case tbe Boeis attempt

While the situation is admitted to be
grave nnd the Foreign Oflioe is not inclined to beliovo the Boora will take

The following from tho Spokane
Ohroniole will be of great iuterest to
the people cf Nelson and the vicinity :
Half a million dollars of eastern
oapital to be expended in one of the
miniug districts tributary to this city
is but a suiull starter in oarrying out
the enoimous project planned by the
King Solomon Mining Company,which
it is stated numbers among its Btook-
holders several of the most prominent
millionaire capitalists ot the east.
Although the plans are perhaps of a
moro extensive oharaoter than anything
of thu kind tbat Iiub ever been undertaken in tbe west, they are already so
far rjoifeoted that the promoters assert
it will be but a short time until one
of the strongest mining oompaniea in
existence will be operating in tbe
Ainsworth district, along the shores
of Kootenay Luke, where a large area
of mineral land has already boon
scoured.
CONTROLS  LAKE   FRONT.
Although tho King Solomon Mining
Company ia a comparatively new corporation its projectors have been at
work tor sever��l yenrs past in looking
to tbe formation of such a company
and havo quiotly secured control of the
various oliriins iu the district covered
until now it announces that it has
scoured possession of two and a half
miles of the shore liue of Lnko Kootenay, and running buck from a mile to
a mile and a half. This territory includes tbo   town of  Woodbury and   all
of tho claims formerlyjowned'and opor-
ato by the Canadian Paoiflo Mining
and Milling Company, whiob it has
absorbed.
The Canadian Pacific. Company for
some time past has been operating in
thia district nud has spent over $100,-
000 in development, having opened up
several good claims, including the
Wakefield, Amazon, Budweiser and
Superior, all of which have produced
good shipping ore. It alBO bad at the
town of Woodbury a largo 100-tou concentrator, and a water power plant
with nearly a mile of flumes, also a
large hotel aud a number of other
buildings. It was recognized m one of
tbe strongest companies operating in
the west and was backed by a large
amount of oapital, but compared with
the new company it was of small magnitude.
THIRTY MILLIONS OAPITAL.
Tbe King Solomon oompany is capitalized at $80,000,000, and stockholders expect it to bo a dividend payer
from the Btart, it being estimated that
the profits from the water power alone
will ronoh $1,800,000 per annum, to
say nothing of the other sources of
revenue.
At the head of the company iB
James B. Townseud, of Lima, Ohio,
receiver of the Detroit & Lima railroad. Mr. Townseud has boen for several years past perfecting plans for the
organization of a mammoth mining
company, aud has interested himself
with a number of prominent eastern
capitalists.
After securing options on n large
number of other claims in the Ainsworth distriot ho, in July Inst, negotiated a lease for 10 years of the properties of the Canadian Paoiflo Com-
pany, when he was lendy to bring the
project to a head The new company
waa organized and by un arrangement
by whioh the stockholders in the old
company were to be given in exchange
the stock of tho now company, tbe
Canadian Pacific Company ia to be entirely nbsorbod and its property will
pass into the permanent possession of
the King Solomon company.
THE FIELD OF OPERATIONS.
The  district   which is  to be opened
np by tbe new company lies just above
Ainsworth, beginning at about two
miles above the town. It extends for
two and a half miles along the water
front, and takes iu several hundred
raining claims, many of which have
boen more or leas developed. The entire country running down to the lako
shore is heavily mineralized, and hns
every indication of beiug one of the
riohest mining districts in tho west.
It is easy of aocess to trauspnrtution
facilities, being on the line of the
boats thnt ply on tbe lake.
The following oiroular letter, which
waa recently Bent out to the Btookhold-
ers by tbe Canadian Paoiflo Company,
will give tbo boat idea of the magnitude of the work to bo oarried on the
new company:
THE  COMPANY'S  STATEMENT.
Minneapolis, Minn, Marob 28.���To

In addition to this lease of onr company, ho has :>ht.lined possession of
n any other claims, giving him two
ai d a half milea of shore line on
Ki otenay Luke, besides gome claims

LOOK TO YOUK VOTE.
To tbe lay mind the law is not as
explicit as it might bo, but whatever
its intention it is unite clear that only
a few dayB remain for receiviug applications and euteiing Dames on the
voters' list. Tho revision is set for the
7th May, and there must he two clear
weeks foi scanning tbe lists nnd tiling
objections. Tbis leaves but u few days
at most, and to be ou the safe side
those who have still neglected to put
tbeir names on should make it a point
tn visit the registrar uot later than
Monday or Tuesday next. Mr. Martin
will make his gteat fight for victory
in the compilation of tho lists. That
is a trick he learned in Manitoba, and
we mny be sure he haH not forgotten
it. His candidate under the rose in
the Nelson Biding, Mr. John Houston
is understood to be pursuing the same
tactics. Honest electors require to be
on the alert. Tbe tip that will win
is,   Kegistor!   Register I   Register!
purpose of purchasing furniture und
fittings for bin hotel. Beoause of his
association witli Mi.Epstein tbo Mayor
bud him shadowed b1hi. It is not
known that Mr. Hon tun bus authority
to employ detectives to wuteh the
movements of reputable persons who
oome to Nelaon to do business, but
be aaaumed the right aud ho noted upon
it. The consequence wns that Mr.
Pleiahmunu left the town iu disgust
without spending n dollar, although
be came prepared to spend several
hundreds.
Mr. Epstein denls in jewelry. Because he was suspected of soliciting
trade in some of the houses nt the
East End, their keepers were hauled
into the police couit und lined in largo
nmounts. We do not know that there
is another man iu Hritish Columbia
besides Mr. John Houston who could
bojguilty of such contemptible spite.
His action is mnde worse through the
fact that dining his whole terms ns
Mayor he has been accepting liunh
money from those women nnd thus
making the oorpnrntion u pnrty to
wbntever Impropriety, or wrong, 01
crime thnt wns being concealed. It is
worse ngnin from the faot that by resolution of tbe Counoil the women weie
given to the 1st of June to vacate their
present premises, which onrried with
it the understanding that in tlie nionn-
time tbey would not be molested, But
beoause of a suspicion tbnt they hud
disregarded Mr. Houston's threat nnd
had dealings with Mr. Epstein, this
understanding is violated nnd tho
women are punished with fines and
harassed   with   further   threats.
Theso lire all matters that reflect on
the town. The Mnyor hns no right to
refuse a license to uny trader who
initios application in due form. He
haa no right to employ detectives to
shadow business men who come to the
City in the regular and proiiei-'porsuit
of their culling. He may have a right
hurass those unfortunates of the Eust
End, but his unnianliuess in doing it
nnder the circumstances stumps disgrace on the City. Is it proposed tbat
those matters shnll rest where they
are? For itself Thu Miner hns no hesitation in exp'-e.-: in;: its opiuiou nud
desires. If he has good legnl clnim,it
hopos Mr. Epstein will press his suit
and obtain exemplary damages. It ia
said the women of tho Enst End intend to sue to reoover tlm ten or fifteen
thousand dollars they have paid as
bush monoy. Jf they have good legal
olaini, The Miner hopes they will
presB their suits aud recover tho last
dollar of tho disreputable exaction. It
seems that nothing less than actions
such na these will arouse the people of
Nelson to a realisation of tbo true
ohuiacter of Mr. Houston, nnd to the
fact thnt his conduct ns Mayor reflects
anything but credit on the community.
MR.  HOUSTON,   MAYOR.
There were some matters mentioned
in tbis paper two or threo days ago
thnt cannot he allowod to drop out of
sight until something more is heard
of theru, for they conoern the business
i nterests not less than the teputation of
tbe town. It is piovidod by by-law
that all who engage in trnde in the
City must first procure n license. It is
not intended hy tbis provision tbat
discrimination shall be UBed iu the
issue of tbelioensos; they are to be
granted on application, without distinction of persons, and no one is given
tho right or authority to discriminate.
The provision is really, nnd was intended to be, one of the methods by
and through which n portion of onr
municipal revenue was to be raise!
Of the tradea thuB liable to taxation is
thnt nf peddling.
A shnrt time ago n Mr. Epstein app
lied for n pedlar's license, and ten
dered the necessary foe. The Mayor
assumed the right to refuse tho application, and in the coarse manner characteristic of him threw tho money
buck into tho face of the npplionnt nnd
rommumlod him to get out. His Worship happens to possess some hobbies
peculiar to himself, and in oarrying
tbem nut does not hesitate to oxoroise
a discretion where no discretion Is nnd
which is at direct vnrianco witb the
letter mid spirit of the law in the oase.
As it is tmpossihli, that any man shall
have it iu his power to say who shnll
or shall not peddle in Nelson, Mr. Epstein was advised to moke another and
formi.1 tender of his application nnd
then lo rroceed ns if the license hnd
been duly granted. Not sntisflod with
ii'lu-iiig tbe license, the Mavor further
took it upon himself to have Mr. Epstein shndowed by a detective. Ho
was thust treated ns a Buapoctod criminal. It is understood that he has en
tied proceedings against tho corporation, and is claiming exemplary damages.
Mr. Epstein Is associnted with Mr.
Fleishmann in an hotel venture at
Fboenix. Mr. Fleiehmann ii a well
known bnsiness man,of unimpeachable
integrity, and visited  Nelson for  tbe

Mr. O. O. Boohauan came home
fiom the convention with very clear
views of tbo situation. Interviewed
liv our Knslo cnntemporniy, he said:
"If Mr. Martin by a majority of one,
or by the ousting vote of the chair,
conld hnve excludod tbo Cnssinr nnd
Esquimnlt (telcgntious nnd dominated
tbe convention, he would have been
satisfied with nothing less thnn unequivocal endorsation of himself and
liis Administration, and any Liberal
lefuaing to support him would have
beeu branded with disloyalty to his
party. When those iu opposition to
Mr. Mnrtin got control of the convention, they refmined from action such
aa would put Mr. Mnrtin or his following iu 1111 attitude of technical rebellion. Liberals who support Mr.
Mnrtin are nt liberty to do so, and
Liberals opposed to him nre at liberty
to co-opeinte with other of tbeir fellow oiti/.ens to bring about his defeat. " And further: "Tho malcontents were without leadership or common tallying point; yet they were
united, and told Mr. Mnrtin thnt he
must go to tho countiy on his own
record nud bis own merits, and tbat
bis defeat, whi.di they predict, will lie
the defeat of Mnrtinism nnd not of
Liberalism. " Theie is the distinction
iu a nutshell. Tho malcontents were
Hucoessfnl in preventing Mr. Mnrtin
from posing as the lendti of the Liberal pnrty, and bis defeat will mean,
not the defeat of the Liberals, bnt
merely of himself nnd bis gang nnd
methods. 	
The Kaslo Kontenniun gets togetbni
a Cabinet representing whnt it calla
tbe Good Government pnrty. It is
made up us follows: Premier nnd
Minister of Lnndj and Works, Mr.
Lngrin, of The Victoria Colonist:
Minister of Finance, Aid. McQueen, of
Vancouver; Attorney-General, Mr. A.
E. McPhillips, of Victoria; Minister
of Mines, Mr. C. II. Mackintosh, of
Rossland; Provincial .Secretary, Mr.
G. O. Buchanan, of Knslo; President
of the Council, Mr. Donald Graham,
of Yale. It ia a good Cnbinet, nnd
probably fow would tnke oxception to
it. But why wnste time over rirciims
of that kind? How is such a Cnbinet
lo be got together? If we Cunld unite
on one mnn, end give bim instructions
to go nbout the country nnd pick ont
tho best men be conld lind v.'e might
have an ideal Cabinet lint tho slern
realities of practical politics forbid
any such method. T'liero must be party
of some kind, even if only of a personal character, otherwise if would lie
impossible to get alx reputable men to
join in a Cabiuet.   Our  contemporary

The Work FHJvides a Vtiry InterBstiDR
Bci'ue From   the Lake.
The many hunting pnrtieH that went
���,, the lake yesterday were greatly in-
terested in the work progressing n'onl-'
tDe   Balfour   extension.    For    Severn*
miles up  the   lake   from Nine   Mile
Point tha lino is well   out  out and we
trom the wnter  oould  easily  imagine
tbnt a tremendous   bombardment  wbb
in progress.   Every  few  minutos big
volumes of  smoke   belohod ont, to  be
followed by huge bodies of rook whieh
a,, to Kraut  heights   and then, fulling
the lake, ohnru   up   the   water iu n
pretty   uiauuer.    Then, when   it
iB about all over, comes the   dull   tour
whieh echoes and re-ecoes as if   n general fnsllade hnd beeu  started   in  all
the bills.   Tho sight and accompany-
inn nuise aie together vory Impressive,
Home of   the  pieiios of   rook fall greal
(liHliineeH into tho   hike nud other huge
boulders go   crashing down the hill to
the lako side.   In   shore a very   Interesting Higbt is made by the  long lines
of men at work drilling Iho rocks and
oleariiiB   awny   the wreck nud debris.
The found of the hammers on the bills
wail a merry  jingle  across the wuter.
Hut it is not snfe to venture too far in
���where work is in progro.is for one nun-
unt tell at whilst   moment n hiuh   cliff
will he broken into   pieces   and hurled
into the lake.    One  canoeist yesterday
fniiuil   himself   in a hail of   boulders,
but   luckily   none   fell   in   his canoe.
That blast, from a distance, seemed to
throw the  stone nearly a quartet of   u
mile from the   shore.    There nre about
1,200 men now at work  aud very gooil
progress is  being  made.    The force ie
being added to constantly.

LOCAL AND   PERSONAL
The wnter iu the lake rose throe
inches in the last twenty-four bouis.
Kor some reason tho Steamer Kokn-

A prominent business man of Nelson
hud uu unpleasant olpetlertce at
Ward's Crossing yesterday, He went
down in tho morning with n friend
intent upou bringing homo with him
a buskot of trout. He chose a rook
upon which to stand and oiiBt but did
not choose wisely. A portion of the
rock gave way aud be took a header
iuto the stream. It was shallow at the
bank, however, aud he did not go in
past his waist, but as he went iu head
lirst tho greater part of his clnathing
was thoroughly soaked. OconBional
exorcise kept him warm until the sun
dried hia olntheB.
A young Bon of Mr. W. MoClandish,

at that spot. Ho yelled lustily for
help, nt the same time endeavoring to
climb upon the log again. .Inst ns he
���ncoeeded in doing so the log turned
again and once more he wns thrown
into tho water. One of the employes
at the ice house, hearing his cries,
went out on tho log lo pull hiru out.
but he, ton, wns dnmped into the
water as the log turned again. He
then grabbed the kid ind hauled him
safely ashore. He was then Bent home
n wetter and n wiser lad as to the ad-
visahilit> of using flouting logs for n
pjnj ground.
Tho Spokane Falls & Northern line
is to be chnnjied to avoid the placet
whroo it has so much trouble with
Kitties and washonts between Oolville
snd n point ou the main lino north ol
llossburg. The new line will go np
Echo valley nn it good grade, but will
cut off nt Marcus, MyeiB Falls and
HoBsbuig. Along tho part of the line
that will be abandoned the rond hiu
had practically all its trouble and it
bas spent about enough repairing
damages thero to pay for the new line
The new line follows the original
survey of the road, and why the other
route wus chosen is a mystery. Ol
courso, this change will not be madi
for some time. So long as freight foi
Republic has to go in this way the
line will run where it is, bnt when
tho Wenatohee-Republio branch iF
done the changes outlined will be
started.
That M. Llovd, whoever he may be,
may be saved from obflourity and thai
tbe world may know of his tnlent as a
writer.Tho Miner reproduces herewith
;i letter published in The Tribune ol
yesterday. M, Lloyd is happy in his
'hoice of language and generons in hit
.tdvico to Mayor Houston. Ha also
shows himself to be a reader of tht
idvertising columns of The Miner, m
Ihe Minor ad for old rags caught hii
eye. If Mr. Lloyd will bring bis ragi
to this office The Miner will be pleas
ed to give him 25 oents for a largi
bundle ot clean old rugs, or 10 oeiiU
for a small bundle. Tho letter in
question follows: "To the Editor ot
the Tribune : It may be esked, "Why
is tho Daily Miner like a broken musical instrument, to elicit the answer.
��� because it is a blasted lyre.' During
all the time preceding <he mayoralty
election this uioet egregiously idiotn
irnduction toemed wilh nbnso of John
Houston, his ideas, politics and pTi-
vnto affairs, nnd before and after ii
was, nnd is, soothing with jealousy
and spito, which has evidently culminated in a most libelous attack on tin
-mid John Houston, for whioh, if 1
was .lolin Houston, I would seek and
u-et redress. The Miner apparently if-
not without fnuds, ns I perceive il
iffers cash for clean rags, which il
woonld he well to apply to a eleausing
process in the Miner's Augean stables.

Helping Hand
to   Weak Men
Lost strength can be regained only by adding new nerve force to the
spstem. For 30 years I have studied and treated disorders of men. young
and old, which result from youthful errors or later excess, and know that
drugs cannot cure because they stimulate or temporarily benefit, while the
properly applied galvanic current of Electricity supplies exactly the life and
nerve force which has been drained away. Yon cannot cure these disorders in a day or week, but you can in 3 months by using the.
Pr���   Sai)dei)   Electric   pelt;
You wear it comfortably around your waist at night, thus during the
entire time you sleep nature is pouring her greatest strengthener through
the system. The suspensory attachment���new���is made upon scientific
lines and directs the life-giving Electricity to the Prostate Gland, Bladder,
Spermatic Cord and all surrounding Parts.
Write for free descriptive book, sent sealed, or call at my office, where
I shall be pleased to talk over your case and explain Belt, No charge for
consulation. I personally answer letters, advising accurately by mail.
There is no Electric Belt equal to the Sanden. Remember that statement.
It may save you from being unfairly dealt with.    Write or call today.
