of Johannesburg.���General French
is North of That City.

Popular Opinion in London That the War is
Practically Over.-Spencer Wilkinson Reviews the Past
Week's Events.
London, June 2.���A oable from Lord
Roberts, dated Johannesburg, Mny 31,
but which was not despatched from
there until yesterduy, has been received
at the War Office.    It suys;
"The occupation of Johannesburg
paused off quite satisfactorily, thanks go
the arrangements made by Dr. Krauze,
the Transvaal Governor here, and order
prevailed throughout tho town.
" Dr. Krauze met me oo my entrance
in Johannesburg, and rode hy me to thu
Government       Olllees,      where       ho
introduced      to   the  beuU   of  the
several departments, all of whom ncced
ed to my request thnt, they would continue to curry ou their respective duties
until tbey oould be relieved of them.
"Johannesburg is very empty, but a
large orowd of people had assembled in
the main sqnnre by the time the Krit
lab flag was hoisted. A loyal.anlote
was fired and throe cheers for tho
Qneen wete given. At the end of the
ceremony tbe Eleventh Division
marched past with tho Naval Bligndc,
the heavy artillery, and two brigade
divisions of tbe Royal Field Artillery.
General Hamilton's command of the
oavalry division nnd the ununited iu
fantry were too far awny to take purt
in the ceremony. The troops looked
very workmanlike nnd evidently took
��� keen interest in the proceedings. The
Ut_ and Wyel's Brigade have been
left in Johannesburg to preserve order,
while the remainder of the force is encamped north of the town ou the Pretoria road.
British troops arc withdrawn rebellion will break out, not for years but
for centuries. For England this
muanB a constant source of trouble
and bloodshed."
London, June 2.���Lord Roberts'
last report of the movement! of the
British troops in the Trnnsviial
somewhat mysterious. From the fact
that General French's report took two
days to reach the Commander-in-
Chief at Johannesburg, it is believed
that either French must be many
miles north of the city or he is having
trouble with his communications
The former is generally accepted as
the most probable and it is surmised
that Lord Roberta1 vague phrase,
setting forth that, "French is now
holding the place which I directed him
to hold, north of Johannesburg,"
means that IiIh position is quite close
to Pretoria.
The additional fact that Lord Roberts' dispatch published today is
dated four hours earlier than the one
given out yesterday, and Unit il tnkes
ln the proceedings no further than
May Slat, leads to the inevitable conclusion that some important movement Is on foot, or that Lord Roberta
himself has not In en aide to keep his
lines clear behind him. Possibly the
new place l��,nl Roberta will be beard
from will be Pretoria, while it seems
that French should certainly lie within
strlklug distance of the capital city.

War Office has received tho following
dispatch from I .mil Roberts:

Roberts reports to Secretary of Stdte

me at 3 a. m. today. He was opposed
throughout bis march, but managed to

positions they successfully held, with
very little loss, and is now holding the
place which I directed him to hold,
north of Johannesburg, Two officers
were wounded and two men were killed
and 29 wounded.''
London, June 2.-3:14 p. m.���The
War Office has received the following
dispatch from Lord Roberts:
"Johannesburg, June 1.���9:26 p. m.
���Sir Henry Colville, in reporting the
arrival of the Highland Brigade at
Heilbron, May 29, states that he was opposed more or less the whole way from
Ventersburg. Eight men were killed
and four officers and thirteen men
were wounded.
"Colville says the Lancashire Battery of field artillery did excellent
work. The naval guus were most
valuable and the troops behaved in a
most soldierly manner throughout the
trying march. Rundle telegraphs

150 men wounded."

London, June 3.���Mr. Spencer
Wilkinson, reviewing the events of
the week iu South Africa for the
Associated Press, says:
"The situation can be understood if
we neglect the Pretoria telegrams.
Lord Roberts advanced from tne Vaal
two columns, being himself with the
main body following the line of the
railway, and General French and
Hamilton keeping pace with him a
short march to the left,
On Monday night Lord Roberts
was nt Klip River Station, the left
wing of tlie column being south of
lb. Tuesday night hiBt Roberts was
at (ien.iistown, and the left wing near
Florida, just west of Johannesburg.
On Wednesday last General Roberts
summoned Johannesburg to surrender
and agreed to give them 24 hours delay before entering the town, which,
however, be surrounded with troopr

"Thursday Lord RobertB entered Jo-
hannesbnrg and made a formal oo
onpation. He held a review of two
divisions nnd then left a brigade to
garrison the town. As to Pretoria, it
very likely that General Freuoh wns
east of the railway and the remainder
of the army within easy marches of
the Boor capital. Meantime, Lord
RobertB' communications were well
covered and the Free State forces were
receiving punishment.
"On Thursday General Rundle defeated tho Free Staters nenr Seuekal
nud received reinforcements from tho
Third Brigade. The same day tho Free
Staters near Fitohhurg were reported
from Maseru to have been surrounded
by Brabant nnd Rnndle, whioh proves
that General Brabant hns an infantry
brigade which may be Ohermid's.
Now ns to Pretoria. On Wednesday
President Kruger left the city, the
Boer troops were dismissed from the
forts and the town resolved to surrender and made its arrangements,
Tho Burghers were in a panic nud believed Lord Roberts was close. These
facts were telegraphed here by two
witnesses: Our news of Lord Roberta
wns 24 hours old, and there wss nothing improbable in his troops being
where Pretoria reported them to be.
Therefore we were ready to believe
that Pretoria would be occupiod
Thursday. Now it is clear that the
Pretoria telegrams expected the occupation two or three days too soon.
Lord Roberts must now be before
Pretoria, but tbe evidence is not sufficient to enable ub to judge whether
or not he has had serious resistance.
There might lie some difficulty in the
Boers having rcoccupied the forts but,
in all probability, the entry of Pretoria will not lio long delayed.
The Boer military power is now
broken and tlie war Is practically
over, although the complete occupation of the country will take some

has proclaimed the advent of victory

London, June 2.���When England
is not talking of peace in South Africa
and the manner of its accomplishment,
the topic ofthe day is the dissolution
of Parliament and the possible retirement of Lord Salisbury. Sir Howard
Vincent writes to the London Times
declaring that the Premier's withdrawal from the field of activity would
be nothing less than a calamity for the
The Spectator surmises that Lord
Salisbury will give up the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs, contenting himself
with being only Premier, and suggests that Mr. A. J. Balfour, the
Government leader iu tbe House of
Commons and First Lord of the
Treasury, should Ik- given bis uncle's
portfolio and be made a Peer; while
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain,, Secretary
of State, should anccced the Marquis
of Lansdowne as Secretary of State
for War, and liecome tbe Government
leader in the House of Commons;
these changes to come lifter tbe dissolution, which the Spectator recommends should occur this year and
insists must be followed by a thorough reconstruction of the Cabinet.
Other weeklies and dailies refer to the
possibility of Lord Salisbury's retirement.
Enquiries, made by the Associated
Press, reveal the fact that there is
not the slightest ground for believing
that Lord Salisbury contemplates
retiring from the Ministry of Foreign
AfTairB, or the leadership of the Party.
He has never mentioned it and his
spirits are equally good, even to tlie
point of. what for bim, is unusual
jocularity; while his interest in home
and foreign affairs is keener than

The Chinese question is attracting
much interest here. Yet. the ravages
of the "Boxers" and the landing of
British and other armed parties, have
scarcely caused a flutter of excitement,
for Lord Salisbury, the Associated
Press leaniB, does not believe the
latest outbreak will result in anything
serious. That it will bring up acutely
the question of the partition of China,
is a possibility at present considered
too remote for any expression of opinion. The attitude of the British Foreign Ollice may be described as nothing less than phlegmatic. "Everything is left iu the bands of Sir (Maude
MaeDlUI-ld, our Minister," said one
of the offlotahl responsible for the
conduct of these affairs. "He is em-
powercd to requisition the men and
guns ho needs from the China Squadron. All the Ministers at Pokln
seem to co-operate harmoniously.
We know nothing of the local conditions existing there, nud never heard
of the "Boxers" until the other day.
I am inclined to Wlieve we shall not
hear of them again in the future."

own making. In regard lo the change

Mr. Houston appended "cheers"

There are just nine candidates of
that party in the field���Mr. Cotton
of Vancouver, Mr- Kidd of Richmond, Mr. Forster of Delta, Mr,
Dean of North Vale, Mr. Green of
Slocan, Mr, Houston of Nelson,
Messrs. Kinchant and Jones of
Cariboo, and, if they insist upon
claiming him, Mr. Neill of Alberni.
Mr. Cotton himself, the leader of
the party, will certainly be defeated,
and it is believed he is courting
defeat. Can Mr. Houston put his
liiigei on any one of the remaining
eight who is certain of election ?
The truth is, and the whole Province is recognising it today, the
Provincial Party will be wiped out
of existence next Saturday.
He was reproaching the other two
candidates for ignoring the Government's railway policy, the sugges
tion being that they were afraid to
commit themselves. It would have
been better for himself if he had
been governed by the fear he attributed to them. He opposed a
Coast-Kootenay railway, he said,
for the reason that it would divert
to the Coast the trade now enjoyed
by the Interior. Yet whenever the
Kettle River charter came up at Ottawa he was a violent champion of
it, notwithstanding it was calculated
to divert the trade of the Interior,
not to our own Coast cities, but to
the United States! And this Humbug has supporters in Nelson who
hope to elect him our member in the
British Columbia Legislature.

Mr. Houston is not an able man;
but he can boast of a good deal of
astuteness, and we have no doubt
he knows his supporters in Nelson
as well as the next one. If he did
not, he would not have published
that report of his Thursday night's
speech which appeared in bis paper
yesterday morning. It was not the
speech as delivered. Mr, Houston
took a day to furbish it up, eliminating crudities here and adding
ornamentations there. But even as
published it was the speech of a political mountebank. There was not
even the pretence of an attempt in
it to discuss the very grave situation
in this Province, and to consult as
to the best means to relieve it. The
subject throughout was John Houston, and it was treated with most
loving admiration of itself. Judging from this speech the whole issue
in this election is John Houston;
there is no other question in which
the people are interested. Just elect

told what would happen, but were
left to infer that everything would
be lovely and the goose would remain suspended at a satisfactory
altitude. This is what passes for
statesmanship with Mr. Houston's
Do we get in Mr. Houston's
alleged American citizenship the
explanation of his hatred of the
English ? At the Opera House the
other night he said we did,not want
English capital, and in the same
connection indulged in his old sneer
at the English people who come to
British Columbia to settle. It is
high time the Provincial Party was
in the throes of disssolution,
when it is reduced to the necessity
of taking up such a candidate as
Mr. John Houston. He has been
abusing the English for years, and
belittling them in  comparison with
It will be necessary for Mr. John
Houston to purge himself of the
suspicion, which is equivalent to a
charge, that he is a citizen of the
United States. If he obtained his
naturalisation papers, as is virtually
alleged, he is not a British subject,
and if not a British subject he is an
impostor as Mayor, and is seeking
to aggravate the imposition by becoming a member of the Legislature. This is a matter that demands
immediate explanation. An American citizen, in his own estimation
at least, is as good as any other,
but no American citizen has a right
to occupy a position of public trust
in Canada.   We  are  British   here,
Mr. Houston is greatly disturbed
over the space which Dr. Hall is
occupying in The Miner, It was
made the subject of much comment
in his Opera House speech. We
do not know whether it will soothe
his distress or add to it, but it may
give point to some further of his
choice remarks if wc tell him that
shortly after Dr. Hall's candidature
was announced the editor of The
Miner, recognising that he and his
party were without an organ, went
to a prominent member of his committee and proffered the courtesies
of its columns, without charge and
without cost, so far as they could
be used consistently with its support of Mr. Fletcher. That is a
bit of news that Mr. Houston may
rejoice to hear, as it is such persons
as he who can detect a sinister motive in the act. Others will see in
it nothing more than an ordinary
courtesy to a candidate and a party
laboring under a temporary and
accidental disadvantage.
Says The Kamloops Standard'
"Poor Dean, there is no Provincial
Party. Foster and Houston and a
few with him claim to be a Provincial Party, and they have all nominated themselves, with the exception of Mr. Houston, of Nelson.
He went to the trouble to introduce
the American system of primaries
in order to get nominated, which is
not, however, to be wondered at,
as he expects to get support, not
from Canadians, but from Americans he has induced to become citizens for the purpose." This is not
quite all true. Mr. Houston, like
the others, nominated himself. He
says now that he did not, but that
proves nothing. At the Opera
House the other night he said he
"announced himself as a candidate
who was willing to go before a convention," but in the card signed
with his name and published in his
own paper in April last he said this:
"At the request of my friends and
political supporters, I will be a candidate at the ensuing election for a
member of the Legislative Assembly." He first nominated himself,
and then called a convention with
instructions to ratify what he had
so. If by false pretences Mr.
Houston has been foisting his
American citizenship upon us we
want to know it, and when we
know we shall act.
Americans,    He would keep Nelson
as it was in its old village days, by'proud of it, and resolved to remain
insulting every newcomer with his
contemptuous epithet of Johnnie-
Come-Lately. He used his best endeavor to preserve the coarseness,
the lawlessness, and the general
immorality of the eaily pioneer days
by opposing the introduction of
churches, sneering at religion, and
insulting those who professed it.
Truly an admirable person to represent the culture, the intelligence,
and the morality of the present
Nelson in the Parliament of th<!
Province I
Mr. Houston confesses to great
difficulty in placing Dr. Hall. There
can no longer be any doubt as to
his own position. At Phoenix a
few days ago Mr. Smith Curtis,
Minister of Mines, openly declared
that he was not responsible for Mr,
Martin's policy, Mr. Martin's character, or Mr. Martin's conduct.
He was running, he said, as a Provincial Party Man ! This puts him
cheek by jowl with Mr. Houston.
Whatever Mr. Curtis is Mr. Houston is. Mr, Curtis is a member of
the Martin Government, and in
embracing Mr. Curtis Mr. Houston
must also embrace it. The Minister is coming to Nelson to hold a
meeting; is it to help Mr. Houston
in his candidature ?

The following atn "ity is perpetrated by The Kamloops Standard:
"Mr. Houston, in his papei, is unable to refrain from attacking Mr.

his name is Houston now, he is
liable to be Beaten on the qth of

It   is not   every   candidate who
takes the   trouble to exhibit himself
in his character as a humbug.  This
Writing out the report of his speech,  Mr. Houston did the other   night.
There is no occasion for going
into hysterics over that "voters' list
outrage," as Mr. Houston did in
his speech the other night. He |
quite lost his head, if serious, and I
if playing to the gallery ' he must
have had a poor opinion of the intelligence of his audience. Among
the many things he demanded to
know was this: "Who gave these
men the right or power to censor
the voters' list? " The law gave it.
The law gave both the right and
the power. In Ihe Dominion, and
in every other Province in the Dominion, the law gives to any elector the right and the power to censor every voters' list that is compiled. The law recognises this as a
duty, for otherwise unscrupulous
men like Mr. Houston would be at
liberty to stuff it with impunity.

Rossland, B. 0., June 2. ��� During tbe
past week there has been the usual
amount ot development work going on
all over the camp. In the Le Roi the
progress made with the combination
shaft will soon place that mine in a position to ship even larger quantities ot
ore than it is ut present doing.
The smelter at Northport, it is understood, is lo be enlarged to double its
present capacity. This will inevitably
be necessary in the near future, as the
Josie, No. 1, Nickle Plate and (Joluin-
bia-Kootenay are all to join Ihe ranks
of Ihe big shippers and will probably all
be on the list before the snow HieB.
Ore tramways and bins have already
been set tip from the first two mentioned. On the Nickle Plate the spur
has been laid out aud work will commence immediately upon it and upon a
750 ton ore bin. A branch to the Co-
lumbia-Koolenav is in contemplation,
and has alreitu, been surveyed. The
output from this a,roup of 15. A. C.
properties alone will tax the capacity
of the smelter, even with tbe planned
enlargement. Ou the last two mines,
the Nickel Plate and the Cohimbia-
Kootenay, development! of some im
portance have occurred during the
past seven days.
The contrnot system on the War
Eagle and .Centre Him is proving n
Burl-ens nmi is boing extended daily.
During this week, und the next fonr,

dome ore is being stnped, bnt is being

has fully made np for the small da-

total is 11,275 tons. The estimated
shipments of this week from tbo Le
Roi alone are npwnrds of 4, Io2 tons,
which breaks the records of tbn middle
of last month which was 11,1)55. The

The tram cars were crowded yesterday afternoon with those wh) visited
the new park at the Unjust own end of
the street railway. It was a lieiml il'nl
afternoon, a little too warm, perhaps,
to hustle around up town, lmt jnst ex-
itctly right for an hour or two in the
xhadeof the big trees at Lake Park.
Several hundred people were there and
enjoyed the cool breezes and the very
excellent music of Herr Steiner's hand.
The park promises to become popular
���with its music on Saturday afternoons,
its boating and its opportunities to
breathe the pure air of Kootenay Lake,

To the Electors ofthe Nelson
Biding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District ������
iuNTi.KMKN As ihe nominee of the
Conservative party I beg to offer myself
as a candidate at the ooming geuernl
election to represent you in the Legislative Assembly of this Provinoe.
The time bus arrived when all parties
are fully alive to the fact that the future
welfare of onr lYovince demands a
sound, fair and honest business adminis
tration aud tbat auy great popular
Party must appeal to other nnd
biglior considerations than those of individual fear of joss, or hope of guiu.
I consider it the duty of every member
elected, to be a I'rovincialist to the extent of the best interests of the Province
llrst, last and always, and to support all
good legislation with that object iu view
In asking you for your support, I will
state that I am opposed to hasty legislation of any kind, but particularly witb
respeot to our Mining Laws, as tendiug
to jeopardize business interests and to divert capital: for instance, twioe the Legislature has passed Alien Exclusion
LawB and they are now for the second
time Bceking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief and damoge.
With regard to the Eight-Honr Law, 1
am opposed to auy change in tbe law
as it now stands. Shorter hours for all
olasses of labor is no new idea, but iu
ray opiuion the priuciplo should be such
as to appeal to all Sections of tbe Community as being not only a necessity end
beneficial to all, but in keeping with the
general qjlvance ment ot our civilization.
I would advooate the amendment nud
strict enforcement of the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, so as to more effectually proteot the lives of workmen.
With regard to the Mineral Aot: I
would endeavor to have certain sections
moro clearly defined, for the purpose of
avoiding litigation ; and with regard to
co-ownership, to introduce nu inexpensive aud speedy mode cf making a co-
owner bear his share ot assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am in fnvor of nn amendment to onr
School Laws so as to give Cities the control of the Schools in their midst.
A fair Redistribution Act should be
passed as soon as possible.
I would advocate the bringing into
force of the Torren's Aot, provided it is
madeoptionnl ; as the cost in a great
many cases will bo excessive aud out of
nil proportion to any benefit to bo derived,
I would urge the speedy construction
of a Court House in Nelson, equal to
the requirements of this distriot,
I would strongly ndvocato increased
(���rants for Roads, Trails nnd Bridges
wherever such will upbuild and dovelope
our Province, more especially in the
Mining Districts, nnd all rucIi expenditure to be plnced iu capable nnd experienced hands to bo dealt with iu a
systematic way.
Our undeveloped naturnl resources
should receive more attention, nnd he
more widely advertised in ordor to attract
With regard to cheap foreign labor I
believe, where the remedy is nn Imperial
matter, in view of the stand our Province
nud Country has taken iu thopiesent war
giving both lives nud money, tbo desired
end onn he gninod if properly sought,
without bringing about a serious misunderstanding with tbo Dominion Government nnd entailing deplorable ngitation

the time und tho uneasiness was not

well for the authorities to compel a

His Reply to Mr. W. A. (jalliher's Question.
In answer to Mr. W. A. Galliher's question as to what would be the Doctor's
course in the event of a vote of want of
confidence in the Martin Government being
moved, the Doctor's reply was straightforward aud manly. He said; "In the
event of Martin having 19 members when
the House meets if his (the Doctor's) vote
would either keep tlie Government in power
or throw it out he would not dare to say to
the people of half the Province that the
Government they had shown confidence in
should be deprived of that confidence."
What would you do John? No doubt
there are some Martin men among your
supportets.    Enlighten them.
flostly   Hade up of Cheers, Laughter and   Applause.
After revising his speech made at the
Thursday night meeting, Mr. Houston
published it in his paper yesterday morning. It shows that during ihe speech there
were 33 outbursts of laughter, 48 outbursts
of cheering, twice there was tremendous
cheering and seven times there was applause. Each outburst of laughter must
have consumed 30 seconds, which makes
16 minutes of laughter. When an audience
of 500 people cheers, a speaker is usually
interrupted for about 60 seconds, which
would make 48 minutes for cheering. For
tremendous cheering twice and applause
seven times five minutes must be set aside.
Therefore, during Mr. Houston's speech of
less than an hour 69 minutes were devoted
tO.laughter, cheering, tremendous cheering
and applause. Will some one please say
when Mr. Houston found time to deliver
himself of his speech?
A vote for Dr. Hall is a vote for a change
from bad to good government. Good
government is what this Province wants.
It must have it if it will prosper;'if its
mines are to be developed and if Capital is
to be obtained to aid in this development.
Good government will come with the return of Dr. Hall and other candidates of
his like.
A vote for Frank Fletcher is a vote for
Turnerism. Do the electors of the Nelson
Riding want another reign of Turnerism?
A vote for John Houston is a vote for
Cottonism and a return of the kind of
government that has mismanaged the
Province during the past few years. Is this

spend his money just as he likes." (Cheers)
Voice���"What about ihe nickle-in-the-
slot machines?" (Silence, everyone listens
for John's answer.)
Houston���-(A la Horatio Nelson, turning a deaf ear to the audience)���"I didn't
hear that." (Prolonged thunderous applause from boozerino rooters.)
Mr. Houston's friendship for labor is
well shown by his advising people to buy
cheap clothing made in eastern sweat shops
instead of paying a fair price for that made
by local tailors at living wages.
That the Conservative machine is
frightened by Hall's long lead in the race
for Victoria was clearly shown at the
Thursday evening meeting when Mr. Macdonald devoted a large proportion of his
lime to making a piteously frantic appeal
for Liberal votes.

The Silent Undercurrent of Boer
Bloemfontein, Thursday, March 22.���
To be iu a conquered oapital, to witness tbe liuhts and shadows of conquest Mil sulm bi'ou, to feel the jubilation of the army thrilling you and
yet to note the semi-occnsiouul cold
draughts of sitllenuess or protest from
the enemy���these are sensations new
to most of us, and almost so to me.
The only conquerors I ever iniirched
with before were Turks, who elbowed
-reeks aside���nnd that is not nearly
he same at being with tbe British iu
lloei-ili.tii. Some of us bad a quiet
week, loafing and feeding after tLe
breathless pace Lord Eoborts led us
and the shortness of food that wont
with bim. Otheis of us havo been out
on little expeditious, mouding railways
or "bill-sticking," as we call the distribution of the Field Marshal's proclamation inviting the Pre* Staters to
lay down their arms. Aud some of ns
are even yet being shot in petty slur
mishes on the surrounding veldt.
it has been quiet in Bloemfontein
ever since we came.
Even :iO,(KK> foreign troops in and
around this flowery, leafy capital seem
uot able to make it anythlnif but
quiet. An editor lias been arrested
for past mlscouduct, and a few silly
folk nave followed him to jail or else
been warned for wearing Free State
buttons, and for being too openly disgruntled by our coming. One who
nils escaped molestation thus far is a
shop girl, who will not wait on the
soldiers, who arc pouring out their
petty earnings in a cataract of silver
in every shop and apparently upon
everything that their money will purchase���useful and useless alike.
We hear that there is a great desl of
Boer spirit left in the little place; but it
hides itself in the houses, and is a great
deal more quiet aud ciroumspect than
the open delight of the people of English stock who lived here through the
war, and, as one ot tbem told me, had to
control their faces as though they were
masks when they walked the streets,
est tbe liners should read in tbeir features some suspicious ptiggestion of enmity or of jubilation over tbe suoo- sues
f tbe British arms.
The Boers nsed to toss white feathers
into the carriages of the British families whose men would not go out to
war for tbe Dutch. Then, again, a
'lack list of pro-British "misbe-
mvers" was kept, and a woman who
nerely waved I e- hn-H in tokeu of
'farewell" to a train load of  British
prisoners bouud for Pretoria waq told
that tbe act was recorded in the police
books, and that she must bo very careful after that. A great number of
Englishwomen got blank marks ln the
polioe book, you may be sure.
