Capture of Pretoria and Johannesburg
Marks the End ol the War.
London, Mny 111, 8 a. m.���YeBteidny
; at uoon the British   wore  only about
' two hours march from Pretoria mid ths
Boer   military forces had abandoned
the oity.
This Intelligence comes from the
Reuter Agency at the Transvaal onpitnl
aud from the Karl of Rosslyn in a
preBs despatch. The two messages
left about the same time.
At two c/'clock this morning tbe
War Office bad reoeived no news from
Lord RobertB which tho officials would
make publio, but it is assumed that
the press advioes are correct.
MoBt of the London morning papers,
through the courtesy of tbe Daily Mail
print Lord Rosslyn's dispatch and
comment upon it, treating the war as
ended. Sonic of the more cautious

likely to be carried on for some time,

dissolving, Lord Roberts apparently
has uot yet taken any considerable
quantities of artillery, arms or stores.

Watervalhoven or Waterfollhovon is
130 mileB due east of Pretoria ou the
iielngoa Hay railway. It should not bo
confused witb Waterval, ten mileB north
of Pretoria, whore the British prisoners
are. Watervalhoven is a small place iu
��� mountainous country.
The seat of tbe Boer Government,
what there is left o( it, will probably le
Lydenburg to the north.
A despatoh from Lorenzo Marquez,
dated WcdueBday, says: "Commandant Kraus has surrendered Johannesburg to Lord ltobertB,"
By tonight's train from Pretoria,
arr��'ed a few (Ireeks, who say thoy
were told to leave. Pretoria Tuesday.
Tbey affirm that the traiu in which
they left was shelled by the British
and half of the train was cut off. The
remainder steamed away. This incident occurred at Elaiidsfoliein Jet.
Passengers from Pretoria assert tbat
the town is utterly demoralized. There
is a mad rush for tho ooast. Five
train loads of fugitives are expeoted
here to night.
Loudon, May 31.���The Times says
this morning: "The war is practically over. By this time the British
Hag is hying iu Pretoria. Mr. Kruger
has tied, and is ere this half way to
Delagoa Buy. Mr. Hay, son of the
United States Secretary of State, who
holds the office of American consul at
Pretoria, and who in that capacity
took charge of our interests, thoughtfully insisted on a special step for
the safeguarding of the large number
of British prisoners."
London, May 31.���4 a. m.���The Lor-
en/Ii M ai 11iic/ correspondents think the
hordor trouble between tbe Transvaal
and Portugal mny come to a bend ntany
moment. Koomnti bridge is strongly defended. Yesterday tho Portuguese authorities were preparing to resist a
probable engagement. A battery was
sent to the frontier,
The Lorenzo Marque/, correspondent
of the Times says: "It would not be
BUrprislng if a large proportion of the
rebel Dutch sought temporary refuge
on Portuguese territory. Although
the authorities here are reticent, tbey
are not blind to such a possibility. It
is reported tbat a special train from
Pretoria with fugitives was derailed
on the Transvaal side of Koomatipoort,
a number of passengers being killed
or injured.
Lorenzo Marqucz. May 30.��� Wednesday afterooon.���Goods trallic betwoen
here and the Transvaal was only closed
today, the reason apparently being the
the military movements iu progress. A
lioer commando has arrived at Koomatipoort. All the Portuguese troops have
been ordered to be iu readiness to proceed to fhe frontier aud the Portuguese
Meet along Ihe coast hns bcou ordered lo

London, May BO,���The following
dispatch has been received at the War
Offloe from General Buller "New
castle, May fin.���The enemy, haviug
formed a laager east of the  town at
Dornberg, pressed my right rear an-
noylngly ou May 21. I directed a
force under llillyard by WooIb Drift
and Utrecht and another under Lyttle-
ton by Schangadrift, on Dornberg.
These movements have caused the
enemy at Dornberg to retire north.
Hlllyard is'at��� Utrecht and the town
has surrendered. Clery is bombarding
LaingB Nek. The cuemy are much
disheartened and were they not in
such very strong positions, 1 doubt if
tbey would show flght. The railway
was open to Newcastle on May 88th,"
London, May 30.���As Lord Roberts
has heretofore always fulfilled his pro-
dictions, it is taken for granted here
that'the British marched into Johannesburg at noon today. Indeed reports arc current that telegrams have
already been received announcing tbe
fact, ami the serious part of the campaign from the military point of view
is regarded as over.
Any prolonged defense of Pretoria
is considered highly improbable and
many military men anticipate that
General French will capture the
Trausvaal capital within a day or two
by   a sudden   and   unexpected   move.
Public interest largely centers in
President Kruger, and bis capture or
escape. The occupation of Pretoria
would be lurgcly robbed of its value
iu tho estimation of the British if
"Oom Paul" were still at large and
able to keep alive, tbe dying emlwra of
, A Pretoria dispatch says the situation nt Johannesburg shows, as reported by Lord Roberts, order is maintained in the Gold Rcof city. The report that the British were driven back
evidently refers to the prolonged fighting of General French westwards of
Johannesburg. But, apparently, the
British were not seriously checked, as
Lord Roberts does not mention in his
dispatcheB 24 hours later.
London, May 80���A despatch from
Mafeking dated Friday, May So,   says:
It is reported that General Hnyman
king remarked that he was so elated
by the recent occurrences that he felt
ho could "drink the health of Paul
Kruger himself coupled with that of
Mr. Cecil Rhodes." Adding "because
Kruger has been the cause of the present great outburst of Imperial feeling
nnd Rhodes was tho red rag to tho
bull which drew him on."

Bloemfontein, Monday, May 28���
Amid salutes anil cheers anil singing of
"GodHave the Queen," the Military
Governor, Major General George
Prcttyman, nt noon formally proclaimed the annexation of the Free
State under the designation of the
Orange River Colony. Tho ceremony
was somewhat imposing and the scene
in the Market Square was inspiring.
Au immense [concourse had gathered
aud the town was gay with bunting.
Tbo balconies and windows surrounding the square wore crowded witb la.
dies, among them Lady Roberts and
the Misses Roberts, tbe Countess of
Airlie, and Ladies Henry Ilentick and
Settrington. Lusty cheers greeted the
concluding words of the proclamation
and these were renewed with ever increasing volume an Lord Aehosonjtin-
furled the Royal Standard and the
bands played God Save the Queen.
All present joined in singing tho National Hymn. The ceremony concluded with chiers for tlie Queen, Lord
Roberts nnd tbe army nud a salute of
21 guns.
Pretoria , May 20, A despatch sent
from Johannesburg last night describes
the town as intensely excited throughout the dny on account of reports tbat

Diamond Jubilee Wins. Slmomlalc Second and Disguise II Third.
London, May 30. Tbo present generation will never efface tho scene when
tho Prince of Wales' Persimmons captured Ihe blue ribbon of tbo turf but
today's demonstration, when Persimmons' own brother gave the Prince of
Wales a second Derby, wr-s almost its
equal. Kor a nionicnf,*wilhin tidy yards
of tbo post, Siinondalc's wonderful

chances,   His  head reached Diamond
Jubilee's girth but Ihe hitter's splendid
form enabled bim to maintain a short
half length lead until, iu tho midst of
mighty cheers, be passed the post a winner,
Tlie crowd then went wild with
cheering. Hats, Hags, sticks, etc.,
flew in the air as the Princess of
Wales stood np in the royal box B���tiling he! acknowledgement of the applause, while the Prince of Wales and
Lord William Beroaford pressed forward to lead the winner to the enclosure. Then the little jockey, Jones,
was taken lo the royal box and, amid
renewed cheers from the crowd, received the personal congratulations of
the Princess, Tod Sloan, the American jockey, was also much congratulated on bis excellent showing, ami
Mr. Keene oxpresscil to a reporter of
tbe Associated Press bis satisfaction
at winning a place.
The surging thousand* so pressed on
Diamond Jubilee's quarters as he got
hack after the race that hccoulil hardly get along. As the Prince of Wales
took the reins and led the winner
from Hie course to the weighing room
and tbe welcome "all right" was
shouted, the storm of cheers was redoubled. Tbe Prince of Wales' arm
must have ached with the congratulatory handshakes which he received
from the delighted crowds which
broke out into hearty singing of
"Rule Brittannia" and "God Save
Ihe 'Queen."

Winnipeg. Vancouver and Victoria Are
Hoard From.
Mr. A. II. Buchanan, chairman of
the general committee iu ehargu of
the big "Land and Water Carnival''
received word from Winnipeg yesterday that that city would send to Nelson on Dominion Day its crack four
oared crew to contest with crews from
Vancouver and Victoria. Word was
also received from Vancouver that a
crew could be had from that city and
Victoria. It only now remains for
the citizens of Nelson to go deep
enough into their pockets in order to
advertise Nelson to the outside world
OS the leading city in the interior of
British Columbia and ns having citizens full of push and energy.
Messrs Buchanan nnd (Ieorge V.
Holt spent yesterday afternoon in visaing the business men witb their subscription list and last night had about
S'.'oOn iu sight. If Nelson it* to do better than she did last year, and bring
within her gates more people than she
has ever entertained before, this
amount must be swelled considerably.
Messrs. Buchanan and Holt will continue their efforts today.
due of the attractions being considered at (he present time is to be
known as "Ihe Relief of Bogustown. "
It will be a sham battle, in which It
is expected the Kaslo, Rossland and
Nelson rifle companies will take part.
The Rossland and Nelson Maxim guns
will he brought into play and Nelson
visitors may leave for home with a
very good idea of what warfare really is.

these Governments what their policy of administration shall be, as he
did ill Atlin last year, lie is more
than suspected of intrigues to advance the political fortunes of his
own family. These are inconsistent
with the supposed rights of Ihe people, and it is necessary that they
should be publicly repudiated, Nelson can elect but one member of the
Legislature, hut in that one we can
add our protest to others and thus
help in vindicating our right to responsible government. We do not
think it can be disputed that the
election of Mr. Fletcher would contribute most to this result. He is
the only candidate who has .shown
himself alive to the situation, and he
is in .sympathy with men who will
be in a majority in the Legislature
and who will be actuated liy the
same sentiments as himself, These
are the issues which we have to
consider, and they are vastly superior in importance to any mere question of a personal character. Have
we the intelligence and the sense of
responsibility to rise to the occasion
and prove ourselvps equal to ihe
duty of coping with them?

WE    RISE    TO    THE
Candidates have their personal
friends, men who will allow their
friendship to blind them to their
true duties as citizens at times of
an election. It is hard to quart el
with this, although it might often
result in a sad state of affairs if
elections were to be determined by
friendship alone. The true citizen
will allow neither his personal likes
nor dislikes to influence him in the
discharge of a public duty. These
he will put aside for the moment
and consider only the issues, the
interests involved, and act accordingly. He holds the franchise in
trust for the State, and, faithful to
that trust, will resolve to exercise it
for the good of the people.
Each of the three candidates in
Nelson has his personal friends,
whose impulse is to sink their
political convictions and vote from
sentiment. They should rather
consider the material interests of
the Province. The election of a
member of the Legislature is something more than an act of friendship. It is perhaps a vain appeal,
but they should consider which of
the candidates is most likely to
assist in giving legislation that will
best advance the public good. That
is the on", great duly attached to
the exercise of the franchise. Let
us elect the best man, irrespective
of all personal feeling', whether of
prejudice or partiality; the best,
that is, in Ihe sense ot standing' for
those principles and measures that
Will  best   serve  the public interest.
The Miner has all along maintained thai ihe first necessity of the
situation is to give stability to our I
Government, and to restore confi-1
deuce in a progressive, businesslike
administration of our affairs. It
holds the same opinion still. The
Province has suffered severely for a
year past from an agitation that has
disturbed business and has rendered
capital exceedingly timid. The first
requirement is to correct this, and
the only possible way to do it is to
elect a Legislature that will set its
face against further agitation. This
done, it will be necessary to inquire
whether we are to have responsible
Government in British Columbia, or
whether we are to be subject to the
caprices of a Lieutenant-Governor
who is fast usurping all authority
in the Province. He presumes to
make and unmake Governments
according to his own will and pleasure,   He presumes   to   dictate to
From long experience Mr. Houston and his paper should know tbat
a clumsy falsehood is a waste of
mental energy. The Miner never
said tbat Mr. Fletcher was an unfit
person to be elected Mayor of Nelson. There is evidence enough of
this in the fact that when his candidature was announced it supported him. No one for or in behalf of
The Miner ever asked or desired
free water from tbe City. For failure to carry out its undertaking
to supply water power to The
Miner oflice, entailing very considerable damage, we believed and believe still that the City owed us
compensation, and said as much.
That, however, was not asking for
free water. The Miner is not seeking unworthy favors from any person or corporation, and it can tell
Mr. Houston tbat if his paper is to !
travel the straight road as unerring-1
ly as it does he will require to
amend its ways very considerably. '

The idlest rumor of the day is one

such an election would be one of the
strangest anomalies ever heard of.
A British Peer cannot be a member
of the British House of Commons,
for that would be an invasion of the
liberties of the people; but he can
be a member of a Colonial Parliament, for the reason, we suppose,
that Colonists have no liberties to
invade. The position is so absurd
there is not tbe slightest fear that
any one will challenge attention
to it.
Instead of imagining evil stories
about The Miner and giving them
to the public as truth, Mr. Houston's
paper would be better employed if it
were to explain what Mr. Houston
has ever done for the cause of labor.
He has shouted for the Unions, it is
true, and professed all sorts of
friendship, but as he has made more
out of ihe Unions than the Unions
evergot from him there is a suspicion that his very violent professions of friendship were made for a
Mr. Houston should at once put
his great influence into operation to
obtain from the Dominion Parliament legislation specially providing
that in case of his election to tbe
Provincial Legislature he may also
become a candidate for the House
of Commons. As there is no one
else in Nelson who knows anything
or can do anything, it will be an advantage to have him our member at
Ottawa as well as at Victoria and as
Mayor at home. If Mr. Houston
wants the earth it must be given to

there is right here in Nelson a heller

To the Electors of the Nelson
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District :
'Skntlrmen���As the nominee of the
Conservative party I beg to offer myself
as a candidate at tho ooming general
eleotion to represent you iu the Legislative Assembly of this Provinoe.
The time has arrived when nil pnrtios
are fully ulive to the fact that the future
welfare of our Provinoe demands n
sound, fair and honest business administration aud thnt nuy great popular
Party must appeal to other nnd
higher considerations than those of individual fear of loss, or hope of gniu,
I consider it the duty of every member
elected, to be a l'rovinoialist to tbe ex-
tont of the best interests of the Province
first, last and always, aud to support all
good legislation with thnt object iu view
In asking you for your support, I will
state that i am opposed to hasty legislation of any kind, but particularly with
respect to onr Mining Lawn, as tending
to jeopardize business interests and to divert oapital: for instance, twice the Legislature has passed Alien Exclusion
Laws and they are now for the second
time seeking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief.and damage.
With regard to the Eight-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 principle should be such
as to appeal to all Sections of tbe Community as being not only a necessity nnd
beneficial to all, but in keeping with the
genernl advance incut of our civilization.

Equal Rights and Eight
Hours for all.
Gentlemen. ���In respouee to unnier-
onsly siRued requisitions asking me to
he a candidate for the Provincial Legislators nt the forthcoming election, I
have consented to enter the oonteut as
an Independent Liberal.
I have the honor, therefore to solicit
your votes and influence, and if elected 1 shnll do my utmost to secure for
the l'rovinco honest, economical and
progressive government.
A brief outline of some of the principles which I think should be em-
bodied iu tho Legislative Aots is given
I have the honor to be gentlemen,
Your obedient servant,
G. A. B. HALL.
1. The prinoiple of eight honrs constituting n legal day's work should be
recognized and strictly enforced.
2. Steps Bhould immediately be
taken through the proper channels to
pievdut the immigration into this
country of Chinese and Japanese laborers.
11. Two dollars and a half per day
should be the minimum wngo of unskilled lnhor throughout the Province
on all government works.
4. A fair wuge bill should be introduced requiring the payment of standard wages on all works to which the
Province contributes subsidies or aid
in any form.
6. The establishment of a labor
bureau under the direction of a Minister of the Crown, whose duty it shall
be among other tilings, to collect labor
statistics, and   to act  aa   a   mediator
Exclusion of Chinesejand
Japanese Labor,
between employers and workmen in
all oases of actual or threatened
strikes with power to call nnd examine witnesses nnd compel disclosure
of all material fnets in connection
with such disputes.
li. I believe tbat trim, roads should
be built and maintained by tho government and encouragement given to
miners to extend these roads. Such
work should be directed by competent
government engineers. Whore trails
are required to single or small groups
of claims the cost of such trails, if
built by the claim owners on the approval and nnder direction of a government inpsector or engineer, shnll
apply as   assessment   upon the claims.
7. Government ownership of all
telegraph systems and railways where
practicable by construction or purchase.
8. The establishment of technical
schools   for   uietallflerous   miners   in
Efficient and Permanent
Civil Service.
The   introduction    of a S
Fair Wage Bill.
The buying public are just getting warmed up to the
fact that our Clearing Sale is genuine. To increase the
good will that is now existing, we put the prices down lower
than ever. We are busy, and if selling good goods at
sacrifice prices will do it, we will be kept busy.

Truth is a pleasant virtue and one
that, sad to relate, docs not flourish

What does Candidate Houston hope
to gain by listing three candidates.

as Provincial Party men, when they
hnve distinctly declared tbat they are
running on the Independent Liberal
ticket? Another instance of wilful
misrepresentation is that of placing
Candidate Hall's name out Of that list
where it rightly belongs. Dr. Hall
lias plainly stated where he stands,
bntli in public and in private. Those
who beard Mr. Smith, of Nanaimo,

independent possessed in tbo Legislature must have boon convinced that a

The Tribune refers to the manner of
Candidate Hall's nomination as the
Independent-Liberal candidate and
speaking of him as making a "sympathetic canvass." It has been said
that some men' imagined themselves

"wliu possessed unlimited gall and
whose pin-headed brains were devoted
to sounding their own praises." Hut
this is an example where no self
praise is needed, an enlightened
patriot, the Mosesof the Kootenuyites
holds up to our view, one. who would
dare enter the political arena, even
though requisitioned to by his party,
in opposition to the champion convention-packer and caucus slull'er of this
much divided city. Tho Tribune but
voices the feelings of the candidate it
represents when it condemns strongly
anything like a regular honorable
nomination. Should this be permitted
to go on. the hour might come when
voters would protest in no uncertain
tone against the dictatorship, very
popular in Caesar's time, of one man.

Tho following is from a Toronto paper. It is worthy of the consideration
of every laboring man and is iu line
with the policy of Dr. Hall:
"As a result of my visit as well as
extensive reading." said Mr. flute, in
reply to a further question, "I have
great faith in conciliation as a method
of settling labor disputes. I think it
is the only reasonable and business
way. In n matter where the business
of the world may bo said to involve
the question of capital and labor it is
extraordinary that just at the point
where differences arise, and always
must arise, that there should have
been no greater effort made to trout
such differences upon a business basis
and by permitting the managers of
capital und the recognized leaders of
capital to moot und try to adjust those
differences, I believe it to be entirely
practicable, and I do not regard it as
an assumption upon tho part of labor
at all unreasonable that thoy should
be permitted to present their grievances through men capable of doing
so. Capital combines and is combining In greater volume from day to
day. Capital and labor must unite in
production, Is it unreasonable that
while capital places its interests in the
hands of its ablest men or is supposed
to do, so, thnt labor should uot be allowed to do the same."
"What chances do yon think an individual worker has to get any Improvement of his condition if he presents his ease individually'.'" was
"Not mie chance in a thousand,"
Mr. Chile replied, "The only hope of
labor is in organization, moderation,
putting their ablest and most moderate men lo the front and recognising
the principle of conciliation of the
rights nf others as well as their own.
Any legislation that may be introduced upon the very important matter
requires Ihe most careful consideration and study, but   1   think it   quite
within the bounds of probability that
a measure oould be Introduced where
conciliation was the recognized basis
of adjusting all disputes thai would
tend greatly lo the settlement of labor
disputes and to a very large degree reduce the number of strikes,"
