Tenth Year
POLITICS
Ralph   Smith   Addresses  a
Large Audience In
Nelson.
Had a Surprise In Store for
His Audience  Last
Night.
Mayor Houston and Dr. Hall
Have a Very Warm
Time.
There   was ft   surprise   ill   store for
those who attended the meeting at
Fraternity Hall Ihhi night who went
with the expectation of hearing Ralph
.Smith ami his associates advise
the election of Mr. John Houston in
this Riding. Neither Mr. Smith, Mr.
Goodman or Mr. Iliiwtlioriiewaite,
the three visiting speakers, mentioned
the name of Mr. Houston, Dr. Hall or
Mr. Fletcher. They spent their time
In  vigorous  denunciation   of    Hon,
Joseph Mnrlin ninl ill advising the
laboring men of Nelson to send to
Victoria a man upon whom they could
rely to properly care for and look after
their Interests in the Legislative Halls.
They left it to the Intelligent laboring
mail to make his own selection. They
merely a '.vised care ill selection. Mr.
Kftlph Smith's Speech was nn able
one und no mini ever hail a bettor
hearing from 11 Nelson nuolence.
Au a speaker he impresses one with the
idea that lie thoroughly believes all lie
says and is absolutely sincere.
If his speech is to have any effect in
this Riding,.-��� 1,��� I it would lie idle to cay
that it will not, that effect will lie favorable to Dr. Hull, who as a candidate
in the Nelson Hiding stands almost exactly upon the same plalfniin ns docs
Mr. Smith in Ihe Riding in which he
is a candidate. Mr. Smith left it with
the workingmen themselves to say
whom they should support. He made
no attempt to ndvise tlieui in this respect, not even by Inference. He told
them, however, thnt they should use
every endeavor to send to Victoria one
in whom they could trust. He need
not be a workiiigmnn himself; but must
not be an agitator, 11 man going nlioul
with n gun under his arm, one who it
greedy for the place of the capitalist
or who would not us faithfully look after tho interests of the capitalist us he
would after the interests of the laboring man.   Particularly did he worn
them against lending their aid lo one
of the agitating class.
"We should haven fair proportion of
labor representatives in the House," snid
Mr. Smith, "and by thnt I mean men
who will look after tbe interests of our
laboring men. I don't menu that we
Bhould retaliate at the expense of the
capitalist. We dou't want demagogues!
we don't waut anarchists, We want intelligent meu. I want to any to yon
that capital buR a right to be protected
just as labor bus. Tbe man who will
take the brond-miudeii nnd impartial
view of matters directing labor and capital iB the man you want to vote for. "
In licginiiiiii; bis address Mr. Hmitli
referred to the preseut as a time when
the politicnl situatiou wnsmoro complicated thnu ever before in the history of
the Province There never was a lime,
he said, when so many Intelligent men
were in doubt, ns to where tbey stood.
There were parties of all colors aril nil
creeds. There wss Provincialism, Mar-
tinism, Oottouism, Turnorisin and several other kinds of "isms."
" For myself," paid Mr. Fmith, "I am
specially inlciosted in this campnigu in
the laboring man. I want you to thoroughly understand my definition of a laboring num. I do not menu only the
man who used the pick and shovel. I
mean the broad and enterprising man
who ia doing some service for bis fellow-
men and for the country."
Mr. Smith then told of his election
to the Provincial Legislature, gave
f)iis reasons for becoming a member of
Hie Semlin Party and criticized and
praised the Semlin Government, on
the one hand for the errors it had
made and on the other hand for the
beneficial legislation it hud enacted.
lie claimed for the Sotiilin tiovei-iiincnl.
that It had done 1 -e for the Province
than had any other Government. Be
referred to Hie removal of the mortgage tax, lo the removal of the necessity nf miners to secure miners'
licenses, ami claimed for the Semll 1
Qovornmont that it had made earnest
eii'ort lo remove from the mines of
the  Province Chinese  and  Japanese
laborers, These things he referred
to 111 answer to the attacks made by
Mr, Martin upon tin- Semlin Government, In regard to Dominion disallowance of Provincial Legislation he
said that it was the duly of the electora of British Columbia to see to It
thai    in   tho   next   Dominion election
men offering themselves as candidates
should be pledged to use their best
efforts to bring about that which the
Provincial Legislature attempted so
1 to do.
"The decision of the Privy Council,"
said Air. Smith referring to the Chin-
uesn and Japanese labor legislation,
" that, as a Province we have no authority to exclude this cheap labor
from our mineB, makes it apparent
that as a Dominion we have this an-
thoiity, and I want you to seo that
your member from this constituency
exercises this authority."
Mr. Smith then referrrd at some
length to Mr. Martin's dismissal from
the Semlin Government and showed
how utterly false were the statements
made by Mr, Martin as to the onuses
which led to his dismissal. He told
the story of Mr. Martin's connection
with the Coal Mines Regulation Act
and the Redistribution Measure, which
he had pledged himself to support, but
which he voted against and defeated
and in so doing defeated the Semlin
Government. Mr. Martin said that he
voted against the Hill and defeated
the Government because if be hail not
done so Mr. Semlin would have formed
a   coalition Government,   taking iii
members of the Turner party. To
show thnt Mr. Semlin had no idea, of
forming such a coalition, Mr. Smith
read a copy of a letter sent by Mr.
Turner to Mr. Semliu suggesting a,
coalition if Mr Semliu would agree to
drop all contentious legislation, modify
the Right Hour Law Measure and provide portfolios far Hehnckcn, Kberts
aud Tinner, Mr. Turner to resign if
the Lieutenant Governor Bhould decline to ratify the changes made. This
letter, Mr. Smith paid, was presented
to the Government members in caucus
and was immediately ruled out without being considered. Mr. Scmlin's
reply to Mr. Turner waB very brief,
merely declining to enter into the
agreement suggested.
Mr. Smith further paid his respects to
.Mr. Martin, nnd did not overlook the
Lieutenant Governor, whom he characterized OS hnving asserted bis prerogatives over the heads of the people in
calling upon a mnn to form a Government whom he knew did not have the
confidence of tbe people and could not
therefore be elected.
" Ibis is a question, nlBo,thnt you have
a right to consider nt the noils," added
Mr. Smith, "and if you do I think that
on tho ninth of Juno the Lieutenant Gov
nruor will find I bat be had made a grave
mistake."
Dining Mr. Smith's remarks Dr. Hall
hnd occupied a sent on tho platform and
at the conclusion of the address Mayor
HmiBton, who wns iu tho audience, was
also invited to n seat on the stage, end
wns loudly applauded as ho made his
way thereto.
Chairman Galliher announced that all
three candidates, Messrs. Hall, Fletcher
nnd Houston had been invited to be
present. Mr. Fletcher, however, bad
gone out of town before the meeting wns
arranged anil knew nothing of it. The
chairman stated that Mr. Hall nnd Mr.
Houston would each Is' given twenty
minutes to address tbe assembly, and
Dr. Hall wns first called. The doctor
was received witb loud applause. He
had listened, he said iu beginning bis re-
marks, with very much pleasure to the able speakers who bad
preceded him. As an opponent of the
Turner Government he had I'o.iglit with
them for yours and could verify many of
their statements. In tho fight in tbe
Nelson Riding in which he was moBt interested nt tho present time, he referred
to the disndvantage uuder whioh be wns
placed by reason of the fact that both
papers were opposed to him,
"The Tribune some times accuses tne
of being a .Martin num. At other
limes they refer to me as almost
directly opposite nnd again they suy

said that If I am elected I will be

London, Mny 21. ���The following despatch has been receivod from Lord
Roberts at Ihe War Office: "Kroon-
stnilt, May 21,���The following ia from
Hunter: 'Mafeking is relioved. Mahon
entered there on May is.'"
London, May 22, -1 p. m.��� Some details of Colonel Mahon's Mafeking relief expedition are now ooming
tbrongh from wayside points. It was
one long rash, to Mafeking. Mr. O. E.

hnrg, May 9th by runner to Kimberley,
May 21st. He says: "The flying
column (mounted) secretly and swiftly
organized by General Hunter started
from Barkley and arrived here tonight, covering 183 miles in five days.
The force being lightly equipped
was enabled to move with such rapidity that although this is a difficult
country, requiring vigilant scouting,
the Boers were surprised. The Column
moved parallel with the e.iemy's position on the Vaal at Roliilnn and Fourteen Streams, actually getting behind
them without firing a shot. So close
were we Sunday anil Monday that
General Hunter's balloon was visible
and his bombardment heard.
A correspondent with (leneral Hunter telegraphs as follows from Fourteen Streams: "Colonel Million's relieving column left Barkley West
under secret orders May 4th and
reached Vryburg on the 10th."
The Boers marched ou tbe right
flank of the British and a strange race
followed, Mahon pressing toward
Mafeking witb tbe utmost speed consistent with keeping bis forco in condition and the Boers hnuying parallel
in au effort to flank him and to throw
themselves across the path,
The Boers succeeded. Mnhoj then
turned west during the night. The
Boers followed, overtook aud attacked
him in the bush and were beaten off.
Then, as Lord Roberts wired. Colonel
Mnhtn and Colonel Plumer nnited
forces at Ksmmosbibi on Mny 15 and
Mafeking was relieved three days later,
under conditions not yet known here.

Office has received the following dispatch from Lord Roberts: "Kroonstadt, May 21.��� Mahon (Colonel B. T.
Mahon) reports having joined Plumer

Another report has been received
from Baden-Powell, dated Mny 13th,
giving important news.
"Before dawn May 13th, a Storming
party, 850 strong, personally led by
Eloff, rushed the pickets and reached
the staat and protectorate camp from

Valley, a strong musketry demonstration being made at the same time
along the eastern front of our position.

A dispatch from Kruninia.li. dated

by tbo Boers and obliged to halt. The
reanlt of the nttaok is not known, but
It is evident tbat tho Boors in the rear
of the main British Army uro alert and
aggressive.
London,Mny 21.���Tho following dispatch from Sir Alfred Milner, tbe
British High Commissioner in South
Africa, to tho Secretary of State for
tho Colonies, Mr. Joseph Chamberlain,

PLAGUE IN SAN   FRANCISGO.
Chinese Residents Resist Measures
For Its Suppression.
San Francisco, Cal., May 21.���The
Federal authorities at Washington have
instructed Dr. Kinyoum, quarantine officer at this port, to take charge of the
mensnres to suppress the bubonic plague
which the lucid Board of Health has declared existing there. What action Dr.
Kinyonn will take has not yet
been announced, The aotion of
the Washington officials is thought
to be due not to the Berionsness
of tbe situation, but to the inability of
the San Finncisoo authorities to oompel
tho Chinese ami Jnpaneae to take precautionary mensnres against tho spread
of tho plague if it still exists here.
Business in Chinatown is almost nt a
standstill. The merchants have closed
their stores and the Chinese remain indoors. They Insist tbe plague does not
exist among them and that there ia no
necessity for inocuintion. They will
not submit to it and it will have to be
done by forco if at nil.
MARTINIQUE ISLAND,'"
Alarming Condition of crime and
Lawlessness.
Kingston, Jamaica, May 21���The inter-island mail brings news of the trial
and sentence of the Island of Martinique rioters. Tlie public prosecutor
asked for a light sentence, six months'
Imprisonment being the highest inflicted.   The Government realized thatthe
rioters were mere puppet* pulled by the
agitators. The papers sny the people
have lost all respect for the law and
constituted authority und that Ihostatistics of crime and lawlessness in
Martinique show the most disquieting increases.
BRITISH SAILORS LOST.
Philadelphia, Pa.,   May 21���Arthur
Bosliens and John  Cbyne,  sailors  on
boniil tho British bark Alert, lost their
lives liming a squall In Delaware Bay
late on Saturday. Captain Rico, who
commanded the Alert, reports that the
storm struck the vessel off Fenwick Island. Bust ions and Cbyne had been
Sent aloft to roof the topsails when a
sudden gust ol wind struck the sails
and hurled both men from the rigging.
Posticus fell on the deck and was instantly killed. Chyiie in his full struck
the deck rail and bounded iuto the bay
and was drowned. Tho Alert was
bound from Rosnrio for Ibis city.
MARTINISM
Worst Enemy or the Province
According to Governor
Mackintosh.
The   Governor   Makes  the
Speech of His Life at
Golumbia.
Grand Forks Meeting   News
From All Over the
Dominion.
(SPECIALS TO THE NINBR.)
Columbia, May 21.���The Mackintosh
meeting in Columbia to-night proved
even more suooessful and enthusiastic
than the various demonstrations in tbe
Governor's honor held at Grand Forks
last week. The attendance exceeded
one thousand. Half tbe people of
(fraud Forks camo over and participated in tbe proceedings. A. W. Kose
presided. The speeoh of Governor
Mackintosh was a noteworthy ose. He
was oheored to tbe eobo particularly in
his severe arraignmont of the polioy of
the Martin Government.
At tbe outset he disclaimed any
mercenary motive in entering tbe
political held. Ho hnd already filled
many public ofllcos. Iu this juncture
only a realization of tbe straits to
whioh tbe Province had been reduced
by bungling incapacity on the part of
tbe Martinites and thoir colleagues had
prompted him to come forward and do
his duty as a citizen. The speaker
evoked great applause by illustrating
tho inconsistencies of the Qovernment
supporters. One polioy served for tbe
ooast and another, entirely different,
was ennnoiated in tbe KootenayB.
Continuing, Mr. Mackintosh repudiated tho slanderous nssertion that
he was an enemy of the workingmen.
He was content to rest upon bis 2Ii
year's record. During his politicnl
career he had consistently fought their
battles. He thon read tolegrams from
eaBtern labor men to prova how ho had
assisted in adjusting labor disputes.
After repudiating any connection
with tho Duuflmuirs or the 0. P. R.,
he discussed the fnllaoious railway
policy submitted by Messrs Martin
and Curtis. If this polioy was carried
out, be said, it would involve the expenditure of millions of dollars. He
then dealt with tho hvpooritlcnl
evasions by tbe Premier of the labor
question. His quotation of tbe opinion
of Ralph Smith, tho labor leader, respecting Joe Martin and the Int.ter'a relations with tbe Dnnsrauirs captivated
the audience. Mr. Mackintosh then
referred to the inconsistency of the
Hon. Smith Curtis, Minister of Mines,
in retaining directorship in various
mining companies, including tbe Sunset. It' was plain tbut Mr. Curtis
oould not serve public aud private
interests at tbe same time. Tbn
speaker also reminded bis hearers that
Mr. Martin was likewise a shareholder
in the Sunset Mine. He added in conclusion that not a dollar moro would
be Invested in the Province until Mar-
tluism received its denth blow.
R. B. Kerr replied, and was followed
by Mayor Goodeve of Rossland. Mr.
Goodeve made a favorable impression.
Grand Forks, B. 0., Mny 21 ���The
Mackintosh campnigu is now in full
swing. Scores of miners and other
workingmen have abandoned the cause
of Martin and Cm-tin.
Tbe meeting in tbe opera bouse Saturday evening was largely attended. Tbe
effort on the part of a gnng of Curtis
supporters to ciente a disturbance re-
sctedon the disturbers Governor Mackintosh made the speech of his life nnd
was warmly applauded throughout.
B. B. Kerr, 01 Phoenix, spoke in reply aud bis demagogio appeals were received with sliouti of derision.
Mayor Goodeve, of Rosslanil, closed
Hie meeting   in   a   luillinut   address iu
which he exposed tho fallacious propositions submitted by Ihe Phoenix orator.
The Mackintosh organization here is
very c inplete.
There will be a big mooting at Colum
bia tonight,   The Governor will be the
principal speaker.
The Vmir Weekly Minor contains the
following: " Put not your trust in the
Huns of men lest they turn and rend
you" says Houston, "for lo I have
laboured faithfully for the tollers
under tho earth, and yet iu the hour of
my need they say unto me 'You oau't
hulldii/.o ns, Mr. HoQSton., Me bulldoze?   Tho idea's absurd."
Bandon, B. 0., May 21, -W. L, Hag-
ler, Secretary of the Miners'   Union, of
this town, and John Buckley, s member
of tho Union, bad a rough and tumble
light i n Saturday aud Mr. Hugler drew
second money. It is to be deplored that
Mr. Hugler, whose expenses for losing
his temper and using abusive language
in Sandon receully were defrayed by
the Sandon Union, sbnuld.celebrate bis
escape after the jury had been out some
hours, by assaulting another prominent
member of the Union on his (Hagler's)
return to Sandon. Had the assault
taken place prior to the jury's finding,
perhaps the Sandon Union would have
been some hundred dollars in.
Winnipeg, May 21,-The Winnipog
Tribune has published the following
from Ottawa, presumably from tbe pen
of K. L. Hiohardson, M. P. : "Ottawa,
May 111.���From the best available Information and looking at the surface
indications, there saems little room to
doubt that the general elections will
be held in tho fall, vsry probably in
October. There aru some who think
the Government wonld aot wisely in
holding another session, but, aniens
tbe business is pushed tbrongh, the
Opposition might offer obstructive
tactics mid prevent the estimates going
through before tho expiration of Parliament, so nn the whole it mny be taken
foi granted thai the elections will be
held this fall. Some oiitioism la being
indulged in by tbe Opposition as to
the Premier's promise about a judicial
investigation into eleotion frauds, bnt
Laurier's statement was distinot and
empbatio. He pledged himself to appoint a commission, whioh wonld
make a tborongb and searching investigation.
Danville, Que., May 21.���Edward
Lambert attempted to kill Melisa
MoiVatt, yesterday afternoon and then
to kill himself because of unrequited
love. Lambert rushed into the girl's
room al .1 o'clock and began shooting
at her, one of the bullets penetrating
her hand. He then turned the gull
on himself but the girl knocked the
weapon from his hand. After firing
two more shots at the girl he wns
overpowered and taken to Sherbrooko
jail. He will be tried there before
the Queen's Court.
Toronto, Ont., May 31.���The grand
jury, in Assizes this morning, returned an inilielmeiit for manslaughter against Arthur Mclutyre, 13 years
of age, who two weeks ago shot and
lulled his father. The boy will be
placed nil trial in the nn,ruing and
probably be sentenced to the Reformatory.
Montreal, May 21.���W. B. Stevens,
Manager of tho Western Loan and
Trust Co., died suddenly at bis residence here this morning. He was in.
terosted in western mining stocks and
onoe held a seat on the Stock Kxcbangs
and Mining Exchange.
Montreal, May 21���The Canadian refiners made a out on all groilus of sugar

of the Federal Premier in this manner? The whole country would
laugh ut him. Yet it is taken with
straight faces in British Columbia,
and quite as a matter of course.
There can be no such fine distinction as this drawn by colleagues,
and even lollowers must display
much artfulness to give it passable
appearance. And in the case of
both it is a good deal of a pretence
in this instance. Some one started
the tune that the platform was a
very good one, and, parrot-like, the
count ry took it up, while there is
very grave distrust of Mr. Martin
himself. It is thought safer, therefore, to praise the platform and to '
appear dubious of the Premier.
Should the Government win out,
all who swallow the platform will
only be too glad to swallow the
Premier with it. And if they are
not, Mr. Martin is just the kind of
man lo make them do it.
Over in the Hast it stands
this way, according to The Moyie
Leader: "As we go to press the
political situation is still unchanged.
It was hinted during the week that
an effort was being made to crowd
Mr. Fernie out of the field and induce
him to withdraw, but this seems not
to hive been accomplished. Today's Fort Steele Prospector comes
out flat-footed for Fernie and bitterly opposing Joe Martin and his
platlorm. Costigan and Smith are
said to be still sawing wood." Sawing wood seems to be a favorite occupation in this part of the world.
We think we can name several candidates who will have more time to
saw wood after the election than
they have now.
Many of the addresses to which the
electors are being treated these days
contain a clause to the effect that
the public lands should be held in
trust for the people, and no longer
squandered as subsidies to railways.
This is proving quite a hit, but in
the present temper of the people it
would be difficult to spring a plausible policy that would not be a hit.
We are just now in the mood to
applaud anything that is novel and
striking, even to the Government
ownership and control of railways. Whether our public lands
are no longer to be utilised as subsidies to encourage the building of
railways is not a matter that is to
be decided by a burst of oratory. It is
a policy that was adopted after
much deliberation and, as was supposed, for good reason. It was believed that companies to whom
lands were alienated would prove active and influential agencies in promoting immigration, and the history of Manitoba and the Territories
during the past fifteen years has
borne testimony to the fact that this
confidence was well grounded. For
the immigration of those years the
country is probably as much indebted to the Canadian Pacific Company
as to the Government itself. In
British Columbia a great portion of
the lands are practically valueless
for settlement, and if the Province
can trade it off for railways it is
doubtful if we are not making a
good bargain. And in any case it
is not too much to assume that the
Companies into whose hands these
lands may be given will make as
good public use of them as the Government. There are at least two
sides to the question, a fact that
should teach us that it is not well to
fly off the handle every time a new
policy is launched.
The United States Government
has behaved with becoming dignity and with proper regard for its
international obligations in so
plainly infoiming the Boer delegates
that their mission to Washington
has been a waste of time. The
Senate, too, has maintained its best
traditions in refusing to allow itself
to be employed as an agency for exploiting the Boer cause. The visit
was no doubt a Democratic trick,
and it is something to the credit of
the Republican leaders that they assumed no disguise in meeting it.

One of the most extraordinary
features of a most extraordinary
political campaign is the frequency
with which candidates accept Mr.
Martin's platform and in effect
repttdiafc Mr. Martin himself. This
very singular distinction is not
confined to ordinary candidates,
who may justly claim a good deal
of freedom in that regard, but extends to Mr. Martin's own colleagues in the Government. Mr.
Vates, for instance, and Mr. Krown
endorse the platform, but reserve the
right to lepudiatc the author of it.
What would be thought if Sir
Richard Cartwiight or Sir Louis

The funeral of Robert C. Charles,
the miner who died nt the Kootenay
Ijtke General Hospital last Saturday,

man, 2-1 years of age, aud was very
much liked by his fellow men. He was
recently employed at the Venus Mine

s irrow is manifested because of his
death. Thomas M. Charles, father of
the deceased, is employed at the Venus,
The mother is at Scranton, Pa.
A private uote from Mr W. Orr Patterson to the editor of The Miner says
that Hodgins, Dickinson, Lee and himself are in the best of health and spirit". They have received copies of The
Daily Miner and were greatly enjoying
them. Enteric fever wus rampant in
camp, from five to eight being buried
daily, Of the seven Royal Can ulinns
who had been recommended for commissions in the Imperial service it was
noteworthy that four were privates of

himself was one of them. Two others
were privates of "A" company, Crook
of RoBsland and Dickenson of Victoria.

othsrs in that dry ore section, which is
Iming so extensively developed by the
Chapleau Consolidated Gold Mining
"onipanv and tho Warner Miller Syndicate. Tho surveying is now being
done, and a wagon road will be con-
sttucted over the route by the Chap-
Jean Company, which will be nset until the railroad Is built next fall. When
t��e 0. P, li. take over the road   they
will reimburse the Chapleau Company
lor thn expense incurred In building
tho wagon rand, Mr. Sullivan, resident engineer of tho 0, P. R., says
that Ibis railroad ran ho bnllt on a
thron per cent cradii and the fact of the
piompt beginning of the work should
tend to prove tne value of the resources
of tlw country in that vicinity.
The railing above the stairway leading to May's barber shop and the
Btone steps in front of the store of
Kerr & Co. hnve come to he a favorite
resting place for those who have nothing else to do, Emm early iu the
evening until late nieii sit on the steps
ami rest against the railing and many
of them are addicted to the tobacco
chewing habit. In the morning the
sidewalk is iu a filthy condition and
the patience of Kerr & Co. is severely
tried, If would seem that the night
patrolman should make it a part of
his duties to order the "tolibacco
chewing" idlers to move to the middle of the st rector to some plane where
they   would   prove   less objectionable.
The following from the Glasgow
Evening News has been handed to Tbe
.Miner and may prove interesting! "At
a meeting of the London Scottish
Border Counties' Association last night
Sir James Crichlon Browne the chairman raid (leneral Oi-iinje was of Scottish discent nnd had relations now living iu a Hinder County, Oronje was a
Dutch tendering of the name Mae
crone. Oronje's father wuh boru at
Aiichehcairn, and his mother at Haiigh
nf Uit, so that he was really a Galloway man, It was curious to note that
Oronje's mode of warfare by foray,
unibusb, surprise and retreat was exactly that of the Border raiders.
Oronje's father had left Sanquhar,
Dumfriesshire, for America whence he
migrated to the Cape.
The Spokesman-Review contains the
following reference to Camp Mansfield:
"A district, which is coming into special prominence just now and which is
bound to attract increasing attention
as it gets opened up, is the South Fork
of Kaslo River. The region was given
its first notoriety by Ernest Mansfield,
who cni'ie out from England and bond
ed several prospects there. He went
back home, taking samples of the ore,
and was Instrumental in interesting
tome molded people there in the district, nioiind Kaslo. Mr. Mausfleld is
expected to return ti) this town in the
early part of Juno, when the South
Fork will become a lively camp indeed.
At present it is far from dull. At
Camp Mansfield a number of men are
engaged on Ernest Mansfield's bonas,
and tne Excelsior Mining Company is
doing considerable work in the same
district.
The Vernon and Nelson Telephone
Company have been making a number
of improvements in their service in the
Boundary district. It hns finished up
the stringing of another line of wire between Phoenix and Greenwood, making four wires iu all. At the Greenwood ollice there lias been put in a 50-
wlre cable, with connections and new
swilclilniuiil. Between Grand Forks
and Carson the company will at once
stretch a wire. At Phoeuix they are
arranging to put in a number of plumes
just as soon as they arrive. They have
already put in connections with a number of the big mining-properties around
Phoenix. Tho lo'lowing are the approximate number of 'phones in use
along the line of Ihe Vernon and Nelson company, which does not include
tlio.syslem at Nelson or throughout
the Slocan district: Rossland 220,
Green wood 116, Giand Forks 00 and
Trail 80,
The Biograph enterlniuinent given at
the Opera House last nighl was decidedly pleasing. The pi'tures nre given
witli great vividness and are froe from
Vibrations to n degree never l-encbed by
any similar instrument shown here. The
pictures Were not only well given but
they were of a most interesting character, depicting scenes in connection
with the war in South Africa, the international yacht race, Ihe Pope and many
others. Owing to an ao.ident to the
train on whioh be was IraveHiug to Nelson Mr. Owen A. Sinily, the well known
entertainer, wns not at hand to give his
interesting a-jil humorous explanations
ot tbo different pictures. He turned np
Inter, however, nnd will appear tonight
when the entertainment will be repeated. Thero will also be a matinee at 4
p, in, on Wednesday and evening entertainments ou Wednesday and Thursday. The attraction is one of the best
that hns appeared in the Opera House
aid is Well worth attending as it provides both enterlniuinent and instruc-
tou. Programmes aie Bold nnd the proceeds therefrom donated to the Canadian Patriotic Fund.

TURNED THEM DOWN.
Boer Representatives Criticised by Sen
ator Davis.
Washington, 1). 0., May 21���The
Boer question came up in the Senate
this afternoon on the resolution of Mr.
Allen to admit the Boer represent*
Uvea to the floor of the Senate. Senator Davis, Chairman of the Oomtntt-
teeohForeign Eolations, delivered n
vigorous speech on Ihe question of the
Boer representatives, He Baid their
mission wan well known. They had
however, proceeded In n manner high'
ly irregular and Improper. Mr. Davis
Hiiid Mml these representatives had
been taking an unwise course, premature and undiplomatic Before presenting ilu'ii- cause to this Qovernment
they were going abonl tho country attending public meotings and were attempting to enlist tin' people of the
the United States to Influence the action of tho Government. Mr. Davis
moved to lay the Allen resolution on
the table, which wns carried,
POLITICS
Continued from First Pugo.
torlacould accomplish   much  frond."
Dr. Hull then told of his action In
the Council, introducing the Nine-
Hour resolution and told his audience
that the Mayor hud not Voted on the
resolution. He hnd always been
friendly lie said with the laboring
men, had been a laboring man once
himself and Could be trusted to look
after their interests if he was sent to
Victoria.
Mayor Houston was then oalled upon. He Htarted his address peacefully
enough, but as he warmed np to bis
work he referred to Dr. HqII bh merely
the tool of the '' dirty, conspiring
Conservatives," Thero was a mixtion
at this point ol applause nnd hisses,the
latter ooming from nil portions of the
audience. The Mayor waitatl until be
oould be   beard   and  then   exclaimed.
'Vipers hiss.���Meu seldom do."
Continuing, he agniu referred to Dr.
Hall as the tool of the Conservatives.
This time there was another outburst
and a man occupying n sent in tbe
front of the hall jumped to his feet.
"He is not; you're a liar," he exclaimed in a voice that could lie beard
all over the hall.
For a moment it looked as though
there might be trouble, but it didn't
come and the Mayor was allowed to
proceed, lie referred lo Dr. Hall lis
entering no protest against   the action
of certain individuals In ruling oft the
list four hundred odd men and Dr.
Hull attempted to reply to this but
was given no opportunity until the
Mayor had concluded.
Then the Doctor replied. He had
expressed himself more than once in
regard to the matter, he said. He hnd
made the statement that if his supporters bad done as those entering the
objections bad done that he would Immediately withdraw.
James liannei'iiiiin made an attempt
to explain the situation more fully on
behalf of Mr. Hall but the audience
Immediately started cries of "pint form,
platform," and instead of inviting Mr.
Hnnnei-ni.'iii to the platform Chairman
(inlliliei- so far forgot his duties as n
courteous chairman as to sit back nnd
liiugli nt Mr. Bannernisn's efforts to
make himself heard. With both the
audience and chairman against him,
the latter not even attemptiug to quell
the disturbance, Mr. Bannerman gave
up In:, attempt at explanation.
Mr. Woodman and Mr. Hiiwthoine-
whnito. who nre travelling with Mr.
.Smith were the first speakers of the
evening and covered about the same
ground as did Mr. Smith.
To the Electors of the Nelson
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District :
Gentlemen���As the nominee of the
Conservative party I beg to offer myself
ns a candidate at tho coining general
election to represent you iu the Legis-
lative Assembly of this l'rovinoo.
Tbe time hns arrived when nil parties
ire fully alive to the faot that the future
welfare of our Province demands a
Hoiinil, fair and honest business administration and that any grent popular
Party must appeal to other and
higher considerations thnu those of Individual fenr ol loss, or hope of gniu.
I oousider it tbe duty of every member
elected, to be a Provinoialist to the extent of the best interests of the Province
firat, last, and alwayB, and to support all
good legislation with that object iu view
In asking you for your support, I will
state tbut I am opposed to hasty legislation of any kind, but particularly with
respect to onr Miniug Luws, iib tending
tojeopardize business interests nud to divert capital: for instance, twioe 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;
nin opposed to nny chnDge in the law I
as it now stands.
Shorter hours for all classes of labor
is no new idea, but in my opinion the
principle should be such as to appeal to
all Sections of the Community as being
not only a necessity nnd beneficial to all,
but in keeping with the geuernl advancement of our civilization.
I would advocate the amendment nnd
strict enforcement of the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Aot, so as to more effectually proteot the lives of workmen
With regard to the Mineral Act: I
would endeavor to have certain sections
more clearly defined, for the purpose of
avoiding litigation ; and with regard to
oo-ownership, to introduce au inexpensive and speedy modecf makiug a co-
owner bear his share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am in favor of on amendment to our
School Laws so ns to give Cities the control of the Schools in their midst.
A fair Redistribution Act should be
passed as soon ns possible.
I would advocate tbe bringing into
force of the Tori-en's Act, provided it is
made optional ; as the cost in n great
many cases will be excessive nnd out of
all proportion to any benefit to be de
rived,
