SHOT AT
Attempt to Assassinate the
Prince of Wales Yesterday.
Two Shots Fired, but Prince
and Princess Escaped
Unhurt.
(IIV AHHOCIATIOIJ I'llESS.)
London, April 4.���Princo and Prill-
oesi of Wales started for Copenhagen
this morning for tho putposo nf attending tbe celebration of King Christian's liirthday, which occurs April 8.
Hrnssuls, April 4.���The Prince of
Wall's was shot at today whilo leaving
the railroad station hero today. Fortunately lio wns not hurt.
The would-be nssassiii is n tinsmith,
unniil Sipido, n rosiilont of Brussels,
Hi years   of   ago.    In   his   pocket wiik
found ii great ileal of anarchist  liter*-
tore, He Bred two shots at Ibe Princo.
Ilie Princess of Wnlus and others
were in Hie onr lint no ono was touched. When examined by tho railroad
oIllcialH Sipido declared ho intended to
kill tlio Pi iune of Wales, that he did
nut regret his aotion.
Intense exoitemont prevailed fnr the
moment, ns ii was feared the Prince
bail been hit, the shots having been
Hied almost point blank. The railwa)
carriage door was hnstily thrown open
and grout relief was folt when the
Priuce appeared at tho window uu-
hurt. Both tho Princo nnd Princess,
however, had a vory narrow esonpo.
The pollcmunu on doty took Sipido in
charge The latter appeare proud ol his
exploit and soeraed quite cnlm. He
snid to the nutboiities thut ho lived on
Roe do la Forge, at Saint Gilles, two
miles south of Brussels. Ho wus
ready In do it again if given a ohnuce.
Hearing shots tho station uiastei
rusbed to tho soene and knocked down
the would-be assassin's arms au ho prepared to tire th! third Bhot nnd a uuin-
ber ol persons threw thoinselves nn tin
I'nu'���������-. a-'H.ul.lllt.     Ill tilO i-i.nI ii.--inn ll
second man who wus innooeut wns
Belied and roughly handled and beaten.
After tho Prince had ascertained that
tbe man who tired tbe shot wns arrested, be declared himself nnd the
Princess uninjured and tho train started. Sipido subsequently said he wanted to kill the Prince of Wales, "beonuse
ho caused thousands of men to be
slaughtered in Sonth Afrioa."
Tbe attnek is ocndenined even at the
labor  hendqunrtors   here   and   nt   the
Maisou do People, whore tho  extreme
anarchists meet, a leading   member of
the Young Socialists  Goard was   loud
in his denunciation   tnis   evening   ol
Sipido's aotion.   Lo  Patriotie,    in   a
"peoial edition denounced the  attompt
���s "cownrdly    and   senseless"    and
saya it will create  general indignation
and the worst enomy of Belgium could
not have dealt   tbe   country a   fouler
Mow."     An   eye   witness  says  that
the train was already iu   motion   aud
whin the   ongineer   beard   the   pistol
"hots  he shut off stoam,    applied   the
brakes nnd   stoppod the train.    As the
train  re-started, after Sipido's arrest,
the publio loudly ohoered   the   Prinno,
who acknowledged  the demonstration
from tho oar   wludow.   An   examination of Sipido's revolver   showed   that
(our chambers hnd beon dischnrged,but
two ot tho cartridges had   missed fire.
The weapon   is  one   of  the   cheapest
all chamber   description,   suoh   as   is
usually sold here for three and   a  half
'raues.   Sipido  hae   a round,   boyish
'ace and dark hair.    At tho examination before tbe magistrate  it  was  ascertained  thnt   he   had   purobased   a
penny tioket in order to reaoh the   departure platform whiob he walkod   up
and down nt the same time the Prince
was  promenading.   Persons  who  attended the Maison dn People yesterday
say tbey heard Sipido declare   that   if
the Prince ot Wales   came to   Brussels
tbnt he ouRbt to have a bullet   in   his
head; and they also henrd him offer to
bet live frano that he would fire at the
Prince.   According    to   Lie  Patrioto,
Borne  news ot views expressed ut  the
meeting referred to  was   eonveysrt   to
the  station muster,   who  bad    taken
"���'^at ho   thought   were   extra pieoau-
tiouB,   Sipido appeared   at the station
in  his best clothes   having ^explained
to hia father  tbat   he   was   going   to
aeek  employment.     The    Prinoe    of
Wales  appeared   quite  unaffected   by
the incident.   He asked    whother tho
revolver wus loaded and  on being an
swered in th�� affirmative, suggested
that the oulprit might not bo treated
too sovoroly.
  ������������^TWMfl'W"
London, April 4.���Tho dispatch
announcing tlio attompt on the life of
the Prince of Wules was posted at the
Mansion House this evening au attracted orowds without numbers, who
expressed their feelings in ultoruntely
anathematising the assassin and ohoor-
ing the Prince.
The Marquis   of   Salisbury   inirnod
lately tolographod the Priueo his   om-
gratuhttious on bis oscapo  from death,
while     [bo    United    States   Oharge
d'Alliairs, Mr. Henry White, who was
calling   on   the   British   Premier and
Minister   of   Foreign    Allaire   ut   the
time, promptly   repaired   to   Marlborough   House   and   loft   bis  ourd.    At
Mui'lho;ougli    House,      Uonerul    Sir
Duightou M.   Piobyu,   comptroller  of
the housobold ot the Prince  of   Wales,
said to n representative of tho   Associated Press that   nothing   had boen le-
ceived beyond thu mere   statement   of
face that an   attempt  has  been   mnde
on the life of tbo Prince.    All tbe olll-
cials woro greatly disturbed by tbe occurence aud the general view wus tbat
it must be oouiiooted in  some  manner
with tho  Transvaal, especially   ns the
Prince has always been such a favorite
on the continent mid   never before has
boen molested in the  slightest degree.
One official   remarked:   "That  Bet-
ties   the    questiou   of   the   Piinoe ol
Wules visit to the Paris   Exposition."
Seme feais were oxpressed as  to   tho
effect which the occurrence may  hnve
iu Dublin,   it   wan   pointed  out  that
such attompts are contagions.    On tho
other hand,   those  who  are   beat  acquainted with Ireland contend thnt the
only effect would  bo  to   increase  the
detei initiation of Irishmen that no untoward iuoideut should   mar  the   sno-
cess of tho Queen's visit.   Tbe news of
the attempt on tho  life of tho  Prince
of Wales wus immediately  telegraphed
to Queen Victoria.

A slight shower marred for the moment, tbe prospects for the dny, but it
was soon over and the weather remained splendid. No sooner had the
Queen arrived at the Vice Regal
Lodge aud lunched than she drove ont
again in Phoenix Park, beiug muob
chccrml. It is nnderstood that she expressed hersolf us wonderfully pleased

Tho Duke of Aberoom, Premier Peer
of Ireland, with the rest of the castle

Ireland is a loyal portion ot the Empire."
From the pier at Kingstown to the
Royal residence at Phoenix Park is
about nine miles. Crowds lined the
entire distance with no disturbances,
the polioe maintaining order with less
efforts than bave been necessary in
London. A most Interesting ooremony
took place at the oity limits where an
ancient gate aud oastle tower has been
reproduced for the oooasion. On the

tion at Vancouver tomorrow. Ho far
as a survey of Hold can be gained from
n perusal of the newspapers the delegates who will assemble at Vancouver
tomorrow will represent almost, as
many different views as thoro nie
coiislitnencies   represented.     Rome   go
pledged  to Martin, bis platform  ami

still others to neither tho Promiei

Hoard was re-elected, Iu moving tlio
adoption of tho report, President
Sliaugliiiessy said bu was gratiflod to
bo nblo to congratulate the share holders on tho excellent results of the operation during the year aud the prospects of continued prosperity. Tho Improvement in revenue was largely duo
to the growth of trnlllo in every seo-
tion of the Dominion. In view of the
remoteness of eastern markets from
some sections of tbe syate'ii the policy
of the Directors has boen to havo reduced rales iu order to encourage maximum development of the country for
the purpose of securing increased revenue from a giowlb of tonnage rather
than a maintenance of high rates.
Apart from short Hues required to
serve growing communities in Manitoba and North West Tciritorios, the
directors do not nt present ouutemplato
oonitlnotion involving important expenditure of oapitul. The preseut
earnings of the Mauitoba and N. W. &
Grent Northwest Railways to be
leased, are already sullloitnt to moot
the interest of liability involved, A
gratifying feuture of the company's
affairs is the fact that during the past

looks today ns though the Boers bad

(Correspondence   of Associated Press,)
London,   Maroli     27.���The   trouble
with Cecil   Rhodes nud Col. Kekewicb
is now   being  fully  told.    It  appears
that tho relation botwoen the Empire
builder and the Colonel commanding at
Kimberley reached such a pass thut
Mr. Rhodos ordered the nrmy officer
out of the House.    The   dispute is told
iu detail by the Kimberley correspondent of The Dally Telegraphi   "When
Mr. Rhod.is saw the danger to whieh
the town nnd its Inhabitants were
exposed, ho ouiuo to the oonoliisiuii
thut the time hud arrived for the facts
of the onso to bo placed ou record.
Ho iioonrdingly called tho mayor and
a few lending citizens together and in
consultiitiou with then drew np a
representation whioh was duly forwarded to Col. Kekewioh, accompanied by
the request that ho transmit it by telegraph to tho high military authorities,
Tho (looument   Baid,   ou behalf of the
Inhabitants of this town.   "We ro-
pectfully dosiro to bo informed whether there is nny intention ou your pnrt
to iiiuko au immediate effort for our
relief," and went ou to dilato upou
the hardships tlio forty-flvo thousand
people of tho oity were undergoing.
"Scurvy is rampant among the natives; cbildieu owing to lack of proper food aro dying in great numbers
and dysentery aud typhoid aro very
prevalent, it is said. Bread and horse
flesh for a long time past, havo beeu
the chief foods of the whites." Later
tho officer commanding sent Mr.
Rhodes a letter informing him that
tlie substance of his communication
had boon forwarded to Lord Roberts
per heliograph to Euslin. Lord Roberts' reply was: " 1 beg you represent
to tbe mayor and Mr. Rhodes as
strongly us you possibly cnn, the disastrous nnd humilintiiig effect of surrender after so prolongod nud victoii-
mis a defense. Many days cannot possibly pass before Kimberley will be relieved and as wo commenco active
operations tomorrow, future military
operations depend in a large measure
iu your maintaining your position a
very Bbort timo longer. " Mr. Rhodes
was muoh annoyed at the suggestion
that the thought of surrender had ever
ocenrrod, either to himself or to those
associated with linn iu the representations which hnd been mnde, nud whon
Lord Roberts aud Kitchoner arrived in
Kimberley, he took un early opportunity of disabusing their minds of so
misohovions nn impression. Col. Kekewioh aud Cecil Rhodes woro baroly on
speaking terms, till the sioge was raised aud their accidental meeting
shortly nfter General French's arrival
gave riso to a most storuiy scene. Col.
Kekewioh it 'appears, told Mr. Rhodes
thut ho had come to see the general
about arresting the editor of Tbo Diamond Fields Advertiser. Mr. Rhodes
replied warmly : "Then you hod hotter arrest me for I agioo with overy
word he has written and wo ought to
go to prison together." Subsequently
Mr. Rhodes explained tho reason of
tho nrtiole to General French, who
was qnito satisfied and declined point
blank to act upon Col. Kekewioh's
irate suggestion. Siuco this incident,
Lord Methnen hns arrived nt Kimberley and taken over the post of Administrator, which Col. Kekewioh now
commands thojocal troops.

d'Aleims, who ropoitoJ thnt a movement wns on foot, on tbo disbanding
nf the militia, for miners to come to
Wardner nud dynamite tho Bunker
Hill mill. There were repeated threats
the governor said, that the ofiioiale of
the mine would bo murdered If they
did not esoapo before tbo Canyon
Creek miners oame down. Ho said he
wus shocked to learn that Frederick
B. Whitney, superintendent of tbo
Frisco null, bad beeu taken from his
room at night by HI armed and masked mon, marched down tn tbo creek
aud shot, dying in a dny or two.
A stir was caused in the oommittno
room when Governor Steunenborg, in
answering a question ns to what ho
knew of the conspiracy in connection
with tho blowing up of tho Booker
Hill mill, said : "I learned thut Ed.
Boyco, president of the Western Federation of Miners, was in the country 10
days before the explosion of tho Hunker Hill and Sullivan mill, and at thnt
timo he iuaugurnted or perfected this
conspiracy by choosing 20 mon from
different organizations in that conntry
and sweating tbem. These 20 men
chose one each and swore him. aud
the 40 eaoh chose a man and I swore
him, and the HO each choso a man nnd
swore him. Iu that way ther went at
least HIO men in this conspiracy to
do this thing, sworn to secrecy."
Representative Hny, of Virginia,
questioned the governor on tho sources
uf his information.
Tho Governor hesitated and thnn
said: "1 learned theso facts from
.lames H. Soeieigu, through u mutual
friend."
When Mr. Hay wanted tho name of
the li lend there was some question an
to giving the name, but thu governor
finally gnvo it as A. B. Campbell
Mr. Hay nsked if Mr. Campbell was
iii the commute,, room and the answer came that bo was. Mr. Sovereign
was also present.
The governor said he hnd not been
ablo to get further evidence, as people
who lived in thn country were afraid
they would be assassinated ii they
were known to huve given any information.
The governor said that about the
same time he received u lottor from ho
G. A.It. Comniandaiy ut Murray, stating thut a number of rifles and ammunition wero in dnngcr of beiug
stolen. Throats hnd been mado to seize
tbem, and a notification bad been served that they would be taken. The G.
A. R. asked to bo relieved of further
responsibility, and the governor said
he had the arms lioxed and shipped
away. The oommittoe then took a recess at 2 p. m.
At the  afternoon   session   Mr.   Hay
moved   to  strike out all   of  Govarnor
1 Steiinenberg's   testimony     of    events
I prior to the conspiracy.   This   motion
was defeatel, flvo   to two.

THK CLIQUES IN THK WAY.
It is quite possible that many who
are declining for party lines are aotu-
atcil by the hopo ol a party victory.
The Miner can speak for itself only,
ajd it disclaims any such motive.
Whether there shall be a Liberal Government or a Conservative Government
in power in British Columbia can
matter nothing to it, so long as tbat
Government is an honest nnd efrlnieut
one. It is anxious to have the people
of triis Provinoe divide iuto Conservatives and Liberals, because it iB firmly
convinoed tbat until wo havo government bused ou these lines there can be
no order or stability in the conduot of
our public ntfuirs. As long as we
havo government by oliques tbere
will be unrest and coufcsion,
and under theso development will be
a plaut of slow growth. This Province the richest in the Dominion,
with resources of incalculable vnlue,
lias made little or no progress duriug
the past two years, for tbo reason that
it has been tho prey of rival factions
who have been too intent on their own
sohemes of personal ambition to tako
tliouuht of the interests of the public
The lirst thing to do is to get quit of all
this pulty political strife, and substitute
puny government for personal government. Whether the first party Government shall be Conservative or Liberal run le a matter of hut small inn
meiit tn any one whose chief desire is
the pnhllo welfare.
Beoause the Liborals aro resolving
against patry lines, it is said, tbe Con-
N-rvaiives must not force that issue.
We do uot understand the Liberal
leaders to declare against party lines
SI ;i matter of principle so much us a
matter of preseut expediency. They
find thorn-elves In n most perplexing
and 1 niiiful situntisn ; they ure, in
dent, between tbe devil and the deep
sen. Tbey realise tbat Mr. Martin is
straining nil his power to form a Liberal puny of whicli ho will bo the
leader, The better Liberals cannot
itomoob this. They will not have
.Mr. Martin, nud without Mr. Martin's
following they cannot challenge an issue <n straight party linos. The
ground is cut from under their feet by
the lotion oi tin LioutetiHut-Ooveruor
iu oalling in Mr. Martin, who is using all the inllueiico of bis position to
whip the less sompulouB of the party
into line. They have, therefore, either
to declare against party lines or to
maintain illenoe.
Tbnt is not a reason, however, why
Conservatives should also abstain.
We bave seen it stated that if tbe Conservatives persist, thoy will drive all
Liborals to the support of Mr. Martin.
That is a poor compliment to pny to Liberals represented by such men as Mr
Davis, Mr. bod Well, and Mr. Hcnkler.
We are sure there is no ground for an
apprehension of thnt kiud ; we are sure
thero are scorns of Liberals in Nelson,
for example, who on no account could
be persuaded or driven into supporting a Murtui oandidate. They wonld
rather ninny times ovnr support a
straight Conservative, knowing that
their time would come in duo course.
Because Mr. Martin hns put a spoke
in thn Liberal wheel Is not a reason
why   Conservatives    should     rofiaiu
from pressing for party lines, and intelligent and reasonable Liberals will
bo tho readiest to admit this. It is
uot the bolting Liberals who endanger
the parly lines movement, but rather
the leaders of the factious, tho men
who aro anxious to perpetuate personal
governmont, wbo havn aims aud projects of tbeir own which they put
higher than any consideration for the
publio welfare. By their attitude today the bolting Liberals nre entitled
to be regarded as the most pntiiotic
section of t! j entire electorate.
They have nothing to hope for themselves, but tbey desire ut uny oost to
spare the Province the cnlair.ity of a
Martin Administration. If the
wretched cliques had half their patriotism they would tako thoinselves
out of sight and leave a clear field tor
a combination that would make short
work of Mr. Mailin and his Government of Beobes and Killers.
Mr. Mai 1 in's lirst selection towards
forming u Government was bis old law
partner iu Munitoba, Mr. Smith Curtis, a gentleman very little known
anywhere in British Columbia aud
not known at all throughout tbo
greater portion of it. His next wus
Mr. Yates, of Viotoria, wbo has had
no experience of public life and whoso
name wus strange to tbo entire population of tho Province outside of the
Capital. Then came Mr. Goorge
Washington Beobe, known to bis neighbors at Agassi/,, uo doubt, but whose
existence was never even suspjctod
hy tho rest of the population. A fifth
bus in.'il boon chosen in the person of a
Mr. Bider or Hyder, who is beard of
for tho first time outside of the little
community of Cumberland. If Mr.
Martin had designed to form a Government of unknowu and untried men
he oonld not have been more buooobb-
ful. ThOBO are tho Miniators iuto
whose inexpeiicnced bands thn affairs
of the Province have been committed.
We havo no guarantee of their capacity
or honesty even, while wo do know
thoy aro wholly without training. It
may be that Mr. Martiu did not intend to thus trifle with grave responsibilities nnd treat tho public with
contompt, but if ho did not his pecu-
1 un- assortment of Ministers is the
moBt convincing evidence of his unfitness for tho position of Premier,
What a shallow, oontemptible fraud
of a fellow Tarto iBl Speaking ln
Loudon tbo other night ne said Canadians wanted to bo more thnn British
sabjeots; they wantod to bo British
oitizens. This they might be made by
giving them a voice in Imperial councils. Aud for months past ut home he
bas, by tougue aud pen, been railing
against Imperialism, aud camo within
au aco of disgracing tho Dominion by
having it appear that wo were opposod
to Bending the first contingent. Over
in Paris it is, "My dear franco; my
dear French flag.'' Good Lord ; good
Devil.

The mineis of Nauaiino do uot trust
Mr. Martin. There was a mcoting
there the other night, and they unanimously agreed tbat "it would be a
dire misfortuuo to tbe woikingireu
throughout the Province if by any
chance Martin, with liia pro-Duus-
muir proclivities, should be returned
to powor." Other miners thau those
in Nanaimo look askanco at Mr. Martin, and Hhould they ever got to know
how utterly selfish and unscrupulous
he is they will not look at bim at all.
But Mr. Martin has a plausible
manner, and his assurance aud audacity are simply unbounded.

"I beg permission to call your attention to the immediato want of hose,
as we have only 1,500 feet in good condition in tho hall and 000 feet at the
upper station. I would recommend 2,.
000 feet bo pnrohased as soon as possible as all of tho old hoae is vory unreliable, and giving out fast. At the
last test at 150 pounds pressure nbout
600 feet proved useless. I also ask thut
a combination chemioal or hose wagon
be pnrohased as soon ns possible as the
truck in n*e haB to bo repaired after
nlniost every rnn. The breakages aro
caused by the street railway crossings.
Thero are vory few of the crossings
planked and thoy are left in such condition tbat it ie irapoBsiblo for tho
tiuck to cross the rails without sliding for a considerable distance nnd endangering the lives of tho firemen."

p.'imoH wore $10 a mouth and if the
City would moot those they would
agree to play nt publio demonstrations

Tho matter of laying a six-foot sidewalk on the north side of Silioa Street

"Three planks are hardly wide
enongh for a man coming home from
tho olub," added the Mayor, "and
they won't accommodate a buby carriage. They were all right when thore
wero only a few of ub here aud no
babies, but the City has outgrown

Among those who lost shipments are
tho Hudson's Bay -stores, H. Ttyors,
and Brankman'ifc Kor. The greater
part of the freight train wns destined
to Boundary points. As tho loss on
everything wus complete thn wreck
will prove a most expensive one to tbe

Tie Rossland Miner nml the Grand
Forks Gazette both made au amusing
error recently in connection with a
reduction iu the rates of the Dominion
Express Or., into the Boundary country. Theso papers understood the reduction to npply to the freight rntos
of the O. P. It., and nt great longth
oongrntnlated themselves upon tho suo
ess of I heir efforts toward forcing tho
O, V. R. to lower their rates. Tho>
looked upon it us 11 signul victory foi
Ihemnelvee nnd did not intend that the
people should overlook tho pnrt tbey
played, Thev have probably discovered their error by this timo and huve
learned that the induction applied
only to tho ratos of Iho Dominion Ex-
press Oo.

Tin; cuyuKS in the way.
it is quite possible that many who
are declaring for party lines are actuated by the hopo of a pnity victory.
Tbo Miner can speak for itself only,
njcl it disclaims auy such motive.
Whether thero shall be a Liberal Government or a Conservative Government
in power in British Columbia can
matter nothing to it, so long as tbat
Government is an honest and efficient
one. It is auxious to have tbe people
nf tm-i Provinoe divide into Conservatives and Liborals, benauso it is firmly
convinced that until we have government bused on these lines there nan be
no order or stability in the conduot of
onr public affairs. As long as we
liava government by oliques tbere
will he unrest and oonfusion.
and under theso development will be
11 plant of slow growth. This Province, tho richest in the Dominion,
with re.scurc.-es ol incalculable value,
has made little or uo progress during
tin- past two years, for tho reason that
it bus been the prey of rival factions
who have heen too intent on their own
schemes of personal ambition to tako
tlioimht of the interests of the publio.
The lirst thing to do is to get cinit ol all
this petty political strifo, uud substitute
putty government for personal government. Whether the first party Government shall be Conservative or Lib-
end 1:111 ������ a matter ot but small moment tn any one whose chief desire is
Ilie publio welfare.
Beoanse the Liborals aro resolving
against patry lines, it is said, the Con-
w-rvaiives must not force tbat issuo.
Wo do uot understand the Liberal
lenders to declare against party lines
ns a matter of principle so much as n
mutter of present expediency. They
Hnd themselves in a most perplexing
uud 1 ninful situation; they are, in
flood, between the devil nnd the deep
sea. Tbey realise tbat Mr. Martiu is
straining nil his power to form a Lib
oral pnrty of which he will bo the
leader. The butter Liberals cannot
sl irnacb this. Tbey will not have
Air. Mnrtin, anil without Mr. .Martin's
following tbey oannot oballeage an jh-
su(    straight   party     linos.   Tho
ground is out Irom under their loot by
the aotion of tin Lieutenant-Governor
iu culling in Mr. Martin, who is using nil the Influence of bis position to
whip the less Borupnlous of the party
into line. They have, therefore, either
to declare against party lines or to
maintain silence.
Thai is not a reason, however, why
Oousonutives should also abstain.
We have seen it stated thnt if the Conservatives persist, thoy will drive all
Liberals to the BUpport of Mr. Martin
Tbnt is a pour Compliment to pay to Lib
er.ils represented by such men as Mr
Davis, Mr. llodwell, and Mr. Henkler.
\Vu are sure there is no ground (or an
apprehension of that kind ; wo ore sure
there are scores of Liberals in Nelson,
for example, who on no eccouut cmld
be persuaded or driven into supporting n Martin candidate. They would
rather many times over support a
straight Conservative knowing thnt
their time would come iu due course.
Because Mr. Mnrtin has put a spoke
in the Liberal wheel Is not a reason
why   Conservatives    should    refiain
from pressing for party lines, and intelligent uud reasonable, Liberals will
be the readiest to admit this. It is
uot the bolting Liberals who endanger
the party lines movement, but rather
the leaders ot thu fuctious, tho men
who nro nuxioiiH to perpetuate personal
government, wbo have aims aud projects of their own which they put
higher than any consideration for the
publio welfare. Hy their attitude today the bolting Liberals are entitled
to bo regarded us the most patriotic
section o( the entiro electorate.
Thoy have nothing to hope for themselves, but they desire ut any cost to
spare the Province the calamity of a
Martin Administration. If the
wretched cliques hud half their patriotism thoy would take themselves
out of sight and leave a clear held tor
a oombinatiou that would malco short
work of Mr. Murtin and bis Uovoru-
inent of Beebcs and Killers.
Mr. Martin's first selection towards
forming a Government was bis old law
partuor in Manitoba, Mr. Smith Curtis, n gentleman very little known
anywhere in British Columbia und
not known at all throughout the
greater portion of it. His next wub
Mr. Yates, of Viotoria, who has had
no experience of publio life and whuue
name was strange to tho entire population of tho Province outside of tho
Capital. Then came Mr. George
Washington Beebe,known to his neighbors at Agassi/,, no doubt, but whose
existence was never oven suspjctod
hy tho rest of the population. A lifth
bas juM been chosen iu the persou of a
Mr. Rider or llydor, who is beard of
for the first time outside of the little
community of Cuinberlniid. If Mr.
Martin had designed to form a Government of unknown and untried men
he could not have been mote successful. These are the Ministers into
whose inexpoiieuced hands the affairs
of the Province havo been committed.
We have no guarantee of their capacity
or honesty even, while wo do know
thoy uro wholly without tniiuing. It
may be thut Mr. Martiu did not intend to thus trifle with grave responsibilities and treat tho public with
contompt, but if he did not his peculiar assortment of Ministers is tho
most convincing evidence of his unfitness for the position of Premier.
What a shallow, oontemptible fraud
of a fellow Tin-to is 1 Speaking ln
London tbe other night ne snid Canadians wanted to bo more thnn British
eubjeotB; they wautod to bo British
citizens. This they might be made hy
giving them a voice in Imperial councils. And for months past at home he
has, by tongue and pen, been railing
against Imperialism, and came within
an aco of disgracing tbe Dominion by
having it appear that wo were opposed
to sending the first contingent. Ovor
in Paris it is, "My dear I'ranco; my
dear French flag.'' Good Lord ; good
Devil.
The miners of Nunaimo do not trust
Mr. Martin. There wns a meeting
there tbe other night, and they unanimously agreed that "it would boa
dire misfortuuo to tbe woikingiren
throughout the Province if by any
chance Martin, with his pro-Duns-
muir pioclivities, should he returned
to power." Other miners than those
in Nnuaimo look nskanco at Mr. Martin, and should they ever get to know
how utterly selfish and unscrupulous
ho is they will nut look at him at all.
Bnt Mr. Martin has a plausible
manner, and his assurance und audacity are simply unbounded.
Thore aro to be two Ministers of Agriculture, it soems. Mr. Uoorgo Washington Beebe wns dug np from a Hold
near Agassi/, aud installed us chief uf
thu Agricultural Department ou ao-
connt cf his puouliar fitness to represent thu farm. And now we are informed that the little country storekeeper, liicler, is entrusted wilh thu
portfolio of Agriculture iu addition to
thnt of Finance. If this is uot sufll
oiont to secure the farming vote, we
suggest that Mr.Mnrtin nlso have himself stamped ns Minister of Agriculture.

Little Business of Importance
at the Meeting Last
Night.
Considerable Work Ordered
on Streets and Sidewalks.
There wbb little of iinpoitimoe before
the Oounoil last niKlit. Willi the ox-
oniition of Aid. Aitliur, nil of the aldermen wero present, with tho Mayor
iu tho clmir. It waa a night of improvements, n ((rent deal of work ou
various streets boing ordered. Among
the moat important Improvements ordered, was tho grading of Stanley
Street from Robson to Vernon and the
oiinngu in the grudo   of   tho sidewalk.
Tho meeting wiib oalled to order ut
8 o'olook. Oonimuniaationa were rend
(rein several porsonB who desired the
work of inspecting tlio Oity eleotrio
lighting plant, as provided for in n
resolution adopted at a recent mooting
ol the Uonnoil. All applications wero
referred to the proper committee.
Aid. Irvine moved, seconded by Aid.
MoKillop, that all sums dno from persona and organizations for lots and
ground in the City cemetery ho ascertained by the Oity Clerk, so that steps
can be taken to secure immediate payment thereof. The motion was oar-
ried.
\V. J. Thompson. Chief of the Fire
Department, submitted the following
quarterly report of apparatus nnd hose
in use, also the number of drills and
alarms: No. of alarm drills, 10; drills,
7; burning chimneys, 4; lires, 8; total
losses, $1185. Tng Kaslo wns burned
January 14, 1900, outside of city limits,
loss $10,000. Appliances iu use : One
liuok and ladder truok fully equipped ;
lined Ire mels, four Baboocks, two
Stemplis, 10 fire extinguishers, 21 helmets, i light belts, 15 pairs rubber
boots, 14 rubbor coats, six lauterns.eto.
"I beg permission to oall your attention to the itmuodiato want of hose,
as we have only 1,600 feet in good condition in tbo ball and 000 feet at the
upper stutiou. I would reenmrueud 2,.
000 feet be purohased as soon as possible ns all of tho old boae is very unreliable, and giving out fast. At the
last test at 160 pounds pressure about
COO feet proved useless. I also ask thnt
a combination chemical or hose wngon
be pnrohased ns soon ns possible us the
truck in rue hns to be repaired after
almost every run. The breakages aro
caused by the street railway crossings.
There uro very few of the crossings
planked nud they are left in such condition tbat it iB impossible for tbe
truck to ciobs the rails without sliding for a considerable distance and endangering the lives of the firemen. "
Upon motion of Aid. Hall the above
repoit was referred to a special com-
mittoe consisting of Aid. McKillop,
Wilson and Morrison.
Aid. Hall moved, seconded by Aid.
Morrison, that nine hour's constitute n
day's work for Oity laborers. Aid.
MoKillop asked if the men would be
paid the same as tbey wouli for ten
hours. Aid. Hall stated that the motion so intended. Upon a voto Aid.
MoKillop alone voted no, and the motion therefore provailed.
A petition was read, signed by about
binycle   riders,   asking  that  the
120
Oity put the bioyolo path iu good ro-
pair. Upon of motiou of Aid. Irvine
tho Oity Engineer was instructed to
put the path in good condition.
J. H. Bowes askod that the rond on
Observatory Street from Josephino to
Hendryx, be made passable as streets for
wagons, as he had recently sold thrae
lots there and ono of the purchasers
desired to build at ouco. Upon motion o| Aid. Irvine and Wilson the improvement was oideied made.
Frank Floteher wroto asking if the
City desired to purchase the two lots
immediately adjoining tbe City Hull
on Victoria Street. Ho desired to
know at the present timo as he had
offers for the property, one of whiob
he desired to acoept if the Oity did not
require tbe lots. Upon motion of Aid.
Irvine, seconded by Aid. Morrison,
tbo Mayor was authorized to ascertain
at what prioe the property could be
purchased and to roport at the next
meeting of tho oonncil.
The Lawn TenniB Club whb granted
Permission to ereot a stand on tho flats
in the vicinity of their tennis oouits,
for the use of members of tho olnb unci
RuostB  watching the tennis games.
A request from residonts, asking for
�� sower in the lane botwoen Victoria
��'>d Baker streets und betweon Heu-
''ryx and Cedar, was referred to the
Public works committee.
The Mnyor said that ho had been ro-
".nested by a number of residents to use
* his influence toward having the alloys openod in blocks 80, US, 41 and
M- Ho thought tho alloys should be
opened nnd suggested thnt the work be
dono. Upou motion of Aid. MoKillop,
seconded" by Aid. Irvine, the Oity Engineer wus instructed to have tho alleys opened.
The Nolson City Band npplied for
assistance from tho Oity. Their ox
pensuH wore 140 a month and if the
City would meet those they wonld
agree to play nt publio demonstrations
and to givo weekly open air concerts as
soon as the weather would permit.
"Wo had better refer that to the
Board of Work," suggested Aid. MoKillop.
"If you do wo'll have the musin,"
Answered Aid. Irvine, chairman of the
board, The aldermen evidently wanted the musio for the matter was so referred.
Three teuders wero reoeived for
grading Ward Stroet between Viotoria
and Silioa and W. O. McLean at 26
cents per oublio yard was tho successful bidder. The othor tenders wore:
W. H. Webb, 20 oents; T. L. Bildor-
back, $608 for tho work, or abont 2!l
cents a yard. Upon motion of Aid.
Wilson, seconded of Aid. Morrison,the
McLean tender was accepted.
Tenders were also received lor laying
the Water Street sewer. Louis Har-
bigg, Richard Pope and Charles Hos-
kin offered to do the work for $720,
with 14,00 for rook work; W. O. Mo-
Lean for $878 uud $0.00 for rock;
Campbell & Deacon, $084 with $G for
rock. Upon motion of Aid. MoKillop,
socouded by Aid. Irvine thej tender
of Oampbe}l & Beacon was accepted.
Upon motion of Aid. Morrison, the
Oity Kngiuoer was instructed to extend the sidewulk on Lutimer Street
west abont 100 yards.
Upon motion of Aid. Irvine, seconded by Aid. Hall, Kootenay Streot was
ordered graded from Viotoria to Baker
Streot.
Aid. Irvine moved, Beoonded by
Aid. Wilson, thnt Stanley Street be
graded from liobson to Vernon Streets,
that the sidewalks be bronght to
grade, that the work be done by day
labor and that the sidewalk on the
west side of the street be extonded one
block. The motion prevailed aud the
woik waa ordered done nt once.
Upon motiou of Aid. Hall, seconded
by Aid. Irvine, the Oity Engineer was
instructed to keep in good repair, at
all times, all of the streets and roads
of the Oity.
Tho matter of laying a six-foot sidewalk on the north side of Silioa Street
from Stanley to Hall waa mentioned
by the mayor, who stated that he believed the three plank walk there at
present was not Buflioient.
"Three planks ore hardly wide
enough for a man coming home from
tho club," added the Mayor, "and
they won't accommodate a baby carriage. Thoy were all right when there
were only a few of ob here and no
babies, but the City has outgrown
tbem."
Aid. Hall therefore moved, seoonded
hy Aid. Wilson, that the desired six-
foot walk bo laid, nnd it waB so or-
deied.
Tho couuoil then adjourned to Monday uight next.
Kerr ci Co. and Mrs. McLaughlin
will hold their spring irllllnory openings today. Both stores have arranged
moat attractive displays and the Indies
of Nelson will see much thut will interest them.

The wreck on the Spokane Falls and
Northern road last Monday has affected soverul Nelson merchants who bad
consignments of goods on the train.
There were two oars loaded with merchandise for Nelson people nnd with
the other oars of the train these with
their contents were totally destroyed.
Among those who lost shipments uro
the Hudson's Bay -stores, H. flyers,
and Braekroan '& Kor. The greater
part of tho freight train was destined
to Boundary points. As the loss on
everything was complete thn wrock
will prove a most expensive one to the
railroad company. The only muu injured in tbe wreck was Brnkeinnn

waa otherwise badly shaken up. His

dons of polioe, lancers and militia.
Shortly before the tjueen'e arrival, the
Fnrsuivnut-at-Arras, wearing a gorgeous cap of Royal Heraldry, galloped
up to the Lord Mayor and asked peril issiou for the eutrauoo of the Queen.
Jho Eurl of Denbig lead the wav,
then came the Life Guards. Ireland
hnd not seen the Life Guards for over
80 years uml many were the curious
comments made as thoy galloped past.
Behind them were carriages containing tbe Home Secretary, Sir Matthew
White Ridley, the DucheBs of (Jon-
naughf and bur daughters nooaouipan-
led by members of the court and nt-
t- titled by mounted equerries ; in the
end, more Lite Guards. Amidst al-
m -i silence save for tho echo of
PS, and the singing of "God Save
lbs Queen," from outside tno city
limits came the Qnoen bcrsolf. Opposite her in tho carriage sat Princess
Christian and Princess Henry of Bat-
tenberg. The moment Hor Majesty
pnssed the gate the enthusiasm broke
out, bands played, men cheered, shouted nnd snug, all bare headed and the
women waved thoir handkerchiefs and
struggled to get n hotter view,many of
them even weeping for joy. Besido
the Queen's carriage rode tho Duko of
Oonnuugnt, Commander of the Forces
in Ireland,
During the five minutes, when the
Queen was receiving and answering
addresses cf welcome, there was
scnraily a lull in tho frantio oheers
trom the crowds. Frequently Her
Majesty nodded, in fact she senrcely
conned nodding during tbe entire nine
mile drive. Princess Christian also
took a prominent part in the cere
nioany, helping the Queeu to take
the keys and onsket containing tho
address, for despite her ability to go
tbicngb the functions, it waa evident
it was really very frail and weak
strength. After the Lady Mayoress
hnd presented a bouquet to the Queen,
the procession moved on. Behind
Her Majesty came a dazzling escort,
staff ollieers, more Life Guards und
Dragoons and finally tho Iuniskillings,
who were loudly cheered as tbey moved into lino.
It wns a pageant such ns hnd never
been seen In Ireland before. (Jompai-
etl with the Queen's recent viRit to
London when she wns practically
unattended, the scene offered a vivid
contrast. Deafening and continuous
cheers marked every stage of tho ronte
especially nt the historio oollege
grounds where the orowds were thickest Ikiu nt nny othor point. Trinity
College was almost hidden hy stands
whieh were black with peoplo aud
dinning with flags and festoons.
Amid tile -.hnuderons welcome of the
populace, the bells of the Catholic
cnthedrnl rung out a grjeting. At the
Vice Regal Lndgo Karl and Countess
CarJogan, who bad met the Roynl
pnrty at Kingstown, but hnd tnkon a
special train back, not joining in the
procession, welcomed tho .Sovereign to
tbeir Irish residence. During the
evening tho Queen, through Sir Arthur lliggs, her privnte secretary, sent
the Lord Mayor u message saying that
she was uot ever fatigued by the
morniug's drive and hnd been deeply
touched nud gratified by tho welcome
she hud received. The message concluded as follows:
"Her Majesty looks forward with
much plensure to her stay in Ire-
laud." Later, through Sir Matthew
White liidley and   Earl   Cadogan, thn
Ql n otlieinlly   conveyed   to the Lord
Mayor tbe following:   "Convey to tho
Lord Mayor nnd citizens of Dtibln,
tbe sincere thanks of tho Queen for
the loyalty nnd enthusiasm of the
greoting which Her Mnjusty reoeived
during tho progress through the benu-
ittully decorated route. Tbo Queeu is
happy to once more bo among herlrish
people from whom sho haR gained and
reoeived so wnrin a woloome."

Why   Remain   Weak ?
ELECTRICITY���The fountain of Youth, the perpetual energy which sustains all animal life.
It is the source from which springs the bubbling spirit of joy in young manhood. It is the vital
element which keeps up the nerve force in old men to a grand old age. When the body is
charged with it the vital powers are strong. Confidence flashes from the eye and the step is firm.
Without it���well how is it with you? Are you weak, gloomy, wanting physical and brain force?
If so you should begin at once using my famous appliance for weak men���The
DR. SANDEN ELECTRIC BELT,
now known and used in all parts of the world for these nervous disorders of men which result from
youthful errors or latter excesses. You place the Dr. Sanden Electric Belt comfortably around
your waist at night when retiring. Use it this way for two or three months and feel the
new vigor and energy which is sure to come to you.
ATTACHMENT   FOR   MEN.
The new suspensory attachment for the Dr. Sanden Electric Belt applies current directly to
the weakened parts.
i\ 4\   A Beware of those concerns and individuals who try to live upon the reputation we have made.
They offer the old style Dr. Sanden Electric Belt along with their own worthless imitations. The
