suspension of Business   In
London to Celebrate
Relief.
)ape Town Despatch Says
British  Entry Was
Unopposed.
Roberts Keeps His Word, as
to Relief of Mafeking
On the 18th.
(SPECIALS TO THE MINER.)
London, May II).���Tbe wliole British
Empire lias been carried off its feet b.>
news ot tbe relief of Mafeking.
Cablegrams from all parts of the world,
vhere flouts t'. e Union Jack, tell of
ioyfnl demonstrations. Overstrained
feelings have found vent iu a storm of
enthusiasm which hns Bprer.il tluoiigb-
nut the United Kingdom and the Col-
inies.
The Empire is en fete and most ot the
people in the United Kiugdom are taking a holiday today.
Further confirmation  of the various
eporls of relief was   received today in
1 despatch from Lorenzo Mnrquoz,  tinier today's date, announcing that Mafeking has been relieved.
As hundreds of loaded trains journey-
jd from the eubuibs to the oity their oc-
upants kept up nn uproar of chreriug,
Iwhich was echoed by tlie occupants of
|the decorated houses along Hie route.
From dawn the crowds  Bwellcd until
tlie frequented thoroughfares were im-
pi liable and vehicles bad to be stopped.
iNo attempt   was made to  restrain the
[expressions  of joy.    Nearly  everyone
(had a Union Juok about his oape or high
: and many wore sashes of the national
ui ore.
Business men and urchins hurrahed
[tor "B. P." and  Mafekiug,   aud  blew
(shrill blasts  on tin   Inn nn,   while   well
I known Bociety and other notable women
I took part with the crowds in the remark-
I able demonstration.   Outside the   Man
��� ���ion bouse from early morning a dense
[ iiissB of people Btretohed tar up the ad-
I JBcent streets ond  ever   and   anon Ihe
orowd burst forth with the national anthem, "Rule Brittania," orlhe "Absent-
Minded Beggar."
The huge pictures of Colonel  Baden-
[ I'uwell    were    cheered      again    and
I again, and every now nnd thou   someone witb  a   cornet   or  a   tints wonld
I start patiiotio  airs.     A  few hundred
persons on  the outskirts  of the  mass
formed   a    pioeession   and   with   the
music paraded the neighborhood.   The
members ol tbe  .took Exohnuge  nius
tered early  and  brought  all the   tings
and bunting nvailable.      Tbe opening
ot business was delayed  owing  to  the
I'Toitomeiit,    for   the   jubilant   stock
brokers had little inolination  for bUBi-
nest, bnt  amused thomselves  by  consenting by telephone   with the   Paris
Bourse,   so  that the Binging of "God
Save   tbe   Queen,"   might   be    board
there.    When tbe remaining  placeB of
business closed,  after   tbe usnnl   half
holiday, tbe clerkB mailn  a hnge  pro-
csssion and paraded all  quarters ot the
town, singing and oheering  and  adding to the extraordinary  excitement of
the throngs of holiday makers.    All tho
naval    and   military   centres  dressed
''���'i". and fired Bnlutes.
A Oape Town dispatch, nnder today's date, lays the relief foroe entered
Mafeking unopposed, tbe siege having
been already raised.  The relief column
which left Einiherley secretly passed
through the Taungs and Veyburg districts without enooanteiing the Federal's columns. It was 1600 strong and
composed of the Oape Polioe Division,
Field Horse, Imperial Yeomanry nud
the Kimberley Mounted Regiment,
with three Mnxims. Tbe foroe reached
Munitziin River, twenty miles south
of Mafeking on Mny 11th. Colonel B.
T. Malum, who, it is understood, commanded tho relief column, served in
tho Dongola und Nile Expedition with
General Kitchener.
A To Deiim service was held in St,
Paul's Cathedral this afternoon. The
Lord Mayor and Sheriff intended to I e
present at the service but they were
forced to telephone that it would be
hopeless for them to attempt to leave
the Mansion House, which was be-
selged by an impassable crowd.
London, May 19���Later���The splendid stand of tho heroic defenders of
Mnfeking nnd their timely relief has
formed the sole topio of conversation
here today. The other events of the
week were swept out of the memory of
tho people of England. They have
well nigh forgotten Lord Roberts and
tbe main object of tbe war.
The confidence of the news of the
safety of Mnfeking arriving iu England on the very day, to which Lord
Roberts asked Baden-Powell to hold
out, added to the general feeling of
widespread satisfaction and popular
confidence in the Commander in Chief.
In South Africa there is a great demand for tha cartoon published in
Punch, entitled "The Eleventh hour,"
in which Baden-Powell is drawing the
attention of Mafekiug, depicted as a
man-faced woman, to a telegram posted on a wall nnd reading: "Hold on
till the 18th," signed Roberts. Colonel Baden-Powell is reported as saying. "All right, cheer up, Roberts is a
liiun of bis word."
While Mafeking itself is of small ini
poitnnce, the relief of that place must
n turaily have a great moral effect adversely on the Boers and be most satisfactory to the British.
Kroonstadt, May 18���General Hut-
tou, with his mounted infantry, today
made a dash upon Bothnvillo and captured three commandants; and nineteen other prisoners, mostly Zarps.
The Coll Machine gun section, Com
manded by Atlamuey, has arrived here.
Owing to Ihe detailing of two trains'at
the Vet River, progress towards tbe
completion of the railway will be delayed for some days.
A NOVEL WEDDING.
A Chinese Bride and Groom Married
Allee Samee Englishman.
A novel wedding ocourred yesterday
morning at eleven o'clock, in the En-
lish church, when tbe Rev, Mr. Ake-
hurst united in inarriiige Quong Kay.
a Chinese cook and Ah Gee a Chinese
maiden of "uncertain summers." Evidently the wedding was not looked upon favorably by Chinatown as outside
of one Ohine.se witness, there were none
of the Washee Washee elite present.
The bride and groom arrived unattended at the church in a carriage. In
securing the carriage Quong showed
his business ability, for he did not mention to the hack-driver that there was
a wedding on baud but asked "What
lor you takee me and ludee up stleetr"
The hackiuan said two dollars. Had
he known there was a wedding to occur he would have asked five dollars,
which is the customary charge among
the Jehu fraternity for such functions.
When the carriage arrived in front of
the church Quong called out "Mo
stopee here," and the hackmnn realized
that he had been tricked. The couple
entered the church in high glee and
were met by the minister and Chief of
Police Jarvif, who acted in loco parentis and gave the bride away. Quong
was arrayed in a new suit nnd the
bride was attired in a handsome brown
silk costume and had a carved jade
comb in her hair. She carried a large
decorated fan which waa manipulated
a great deal during tbe ceremony.
She did not speak English and consequently the service bad to be trans
luted by Quong, who speaks English
fairly well. Several parts of the cere
mony were ommitted, no wedding ring
being used, nnd several inU'ipolations
were made, one being where the bride
and groom each asserted they would
marry no one cIho. They both smiled
broadly all through 'he ceremony and
after it was over drove away to Chinatown, where the groom has a shack in
which they will spend their honey,
moon.
NO DOUBT
Official Notice to the Queen
Dispels All Doubt of
Relief.
General  Rundle Is Keeping
Olivier On the
Run.
Boers' Retreat Has Become
a Disorganized
Rout.
(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London, May 20.-4:15 a. m.���Last
night's Court Circular contains the following:
'The Queen receivedon Friday night,
with great gratification and thankful
uess, tbe news of tbe relief ou Mufeking,
after a beroio defense of over seven
mouths by Colonel Baden-Powell aud
the troops under his command."
The significance, whioh refers to the
receipt by Her Majesty ot a copy of the
Associated Prees Pretoria despatch, is
that it is the first official inf< rmation of
the relief of Mafeking and it would not
have been made bad nny doubt existed
in the official mind as to the correctness
of the news. Meanwhile tbe usual
Saturday night's silenoe holds from tbe
seat of. The cables ars mainly composed
ot reportn of enthusiastic jubilation' at
various points. ... ..
A despatch from Winburg, dated
May nub. says: "General Randle
reached Trummel, 28 miles from here,
on Friday, traversing exceedingly
mountainous country. Commandant
Olivier's commando is- several days
ahead of bim, but stray . petrols of
Boers are watching Bundle's movements. His men are in excellent form
in spite of the long daily marches."  '
A despatch front Piotiirnuiritzimrg
says: " The occupation of Newcastle
by Geneial Bullei has caused great
jubilation. ' The.-Magistrate and bis
stall, the Mayor and the corporation
have left for Newcastle. Many fleeing
Boers have gone to the Free Statu by
Mailer's Pass. Others have gone to
Wnakerstroom. Most of tbem. bow-,
ever,, have gone north as a disorganized
Bibb.
London, May 19���Tbe War Ofllcehas
received tbe following despatch from
General Buller, dated Newcastle, May
10th;
" General Olery moved lo Isgogo to
day and General DundonalrJ to .I��iiugs
Nek. We almost caught up with the
tail of an enemy's column nnd hnve oap-
tured n few prisoners nnd wagons. The
men have marched very well indeed.. I
left I .inlyi iiiitb May 10th, ond am now
138 miles from there. Tho telegraph
section linn been indefatigable aud the
seivice corps has kept us full on ratlonB
all of tbe time. The Fifth- Division bus
also done great service."
BRIEF LOCALS.
Immersion in cold- water js a -new
method of celebrating any great public
event. But that programme was inaugurated Friday night at a prominent
saloon by a party of enthusiasts who
were celebrating tbe relief of Msfeking.
There is a large fish tank in tbe center
of the barroom and during an mil Imrsl
of conviviality one of the revellers was
tossed bodily into tbe tank and was
well "soaked." Strange to say, however,
after be emerged from bin cold bath he
wus so "dry" that it became necessary
to open another bottle.
Next Saturday E. W. Matthews and
Pr. Quiulan will settle a novel wager.
Matthews bets Quiulan that ho can
wield a nino pound hammer on a drill
longer than Quinlan can and J. W.
Tierney bos provided a means of set -
> 1 lenient.   lie will take both men to
bis camp nt Bridge 17, between Nelson
nnd Robson, provide tbem with hammers and also provide the drill-men
and drills. The one who plays out
first looses the bet and if hoi li men
work lor nine boms it will be called a
draw. Both gentlemen arc now in
practise.
There was a big crowd iu Prank
Fiddler's committee rooms last night
and tbo meeting wus a most enthusiastic one. Mr. Fletcher delivered a
brief address expressing bis pleasure
with tho manner iu which tbe campaign wns progressing nnd bis confidence in his election. There was lots
of work yet to be done, boweycr, and
he asked his supporters to continue
earnestly in the fight until the polls
were closed. Mr. Fletcher will speak
at Creston on Monday night and will
also visit Sirdar, Kitchner and Kus-
konook.
Tomorrow evening is the opening
night of the Biograph engagement in
this city. All through British Columbia they have been drawing tremendous houses and the pictures are acknowledged to be the very best ever
seen. There will he a special matinee
ou Wednesday afternoon at 4 p. m. for
the school children. Parents should
see that their children do not miss this
chance, as it is not only euteitaining
but educational. Thousands of people
have witnessed these marvelous pictures and all went away well pleased
with these splendid views.
Colleolor of Votes Harry Wright yesterday received instructions from Premier Martin, through the Hon. Smith
Cuilis, to appeal the decision of Judge
Drake grunting prohibition iu tbe matter of the objections to the placing of
c-rtain names ou the voters' list. Mr.
Wright is itisliuc'ed to first secure indemnity of costs from those upon whose
requisition the appeal is taken, and is
authorized to enlist the services of u
lawyer for this purpose It is understood that Mr. S, S. Taylor will look
after the interests of those who have
neked for the appeal.
Many senries aro being told in regard
to ex-school tenoher Goodrede of Kusk-
anook, who was sent to New Westminster a few days ago to.the insane
asylum. One afternoon last week he
rnshod into the offioe of a polioe olfi-
oial.u.id hauling out several packages
of cigarettes asked the ollioial to take
obargo of thorn as they had been given
to him by someone who desired to do
him harm, and that tbey hnd boen
"dontored " in order to Accomplish
tbnt purpose. He nlso explained that
the mirror in tho Hume Hotel wash
room bad been arranged so as to oast
a spell over him. He insisted npon
leaving tbe cigarettes in charge of tbe
poli'co and went away to oncounter
flosb perils.
The Minnesota Hilyer Co., which has
been steadily developing its property
at Sandon since 181)2 until it is now recognized as one cf the must valuable
propel lies in British Columbia, have
pl-u-iil an order with the Hamilton
Manufacturing Co., for a 2)10 ton concentrator which will be erected at the
earliest possible moment. Hany How-
sod, of tbe Hamilton Co., succeeded in
securing tbe order in competition with
several Americnn manufacturers. Mr,
ll. C. Riblett, of this City, succeeded in
securing (he contract for the building of
the tramway nt a cost approximiting
$25,000. Altogether the oompany will
spend in the neighborhood of $75,000,
The principal owners ot the Minnesota
Silver Oompany properties are P, J.
Hi'key, tbe manager of the properties,
W; II. Yawkey, of Detroit, and J, D.
Farrell, president of the Pacific Coast
HtenmBbip Co. It is expected that tbe
improvements will have been made in
00 days,
It were better that Manager Annable
should nail up the doors of the Nelson
Opera limisi- tbn- book eucb alleged attractions as that whioh appeared last
night. The publio of Nalson bos been
patient in tbo past and bus pat np witb
more than its share of this character of
attractions. But there is a limit and
that limit was reachod last night, "Tbe
Bitter Atonement as produced by the J,
C. Ktults Co., in remarkable for its
coarseness and its utter lack of anything
approaching art. It is unfair lo good
and worthy attractioos to bonk such
attractions as that of Stutta. Nelson is
now a good show town nud will remain
bo if Ihe patrons of (lie Opera House are
well treated. But if many more such
shows ns "The Bitter Atouement" are
allowed room in the Opera llomtcit will
not be long before Neliion will be known
as a "decidedly poor nhow town" and
her citizens will lie deprived of tbe pleasure of wilneBBing good performances in
the local opera bouse. Manager Annable should lake heed before it Is too
late,

Premier Joseph Martin's platform is
the best for the country." The Slocan city de'egation was strong for

Hint tbe Miner's I'nioi votes will go to

by tbe falling timber, but oblivious of

and industrial activities of the
Province. That is all; every thine/
else will follow naturally. Give us
a Legislature that will do this, and
il must of necessity, even if it had
not the lncllnatlon( deal with the
Mongolian question, build our
roads and trails, provide an equitable redistribution of constituencies)
and do Ihe score of oilier things
that the people demand and the
candidates arc scrambling over each
others' heads in their hurry to
promise. A Legislature that will
give us rest from agitation will give
us whatever else the public necessities demand, A Legislature of
Martins would accentuate and aggravate the agitation; a Legislature
of Cottons would but prolong it.
We want a kind made up of such
men as Mr. Mackintosh, Mr.
Fletcher, and Mr. Keen. Give us
a majority of these, and the rest
will follow.
that he and his friends are Inactive.
Dr. Hall is one of our best citizens;
he is popular personally with nil
classes, and has a strong labor
support. Mr. Fletcher will have
all his time and resouices fully employed to keep in the lead of Dr.
Hall, who is already second in the
race and is making strenuous efforts
to jump ahead. The Miner believes
that Mr, Houston is no longer in it
with the other candidates, and if
Dr. Hall stood for a party that
promised to have some strength in
the Legislature Mr. Fletcher would
have good reason to feel anxious in
contemplating the result.
AN OBJECT LESSON.
ONE INCLUDES ALL.
One paper tells us that the question of Oriental  immigration is one
of most  vital   importance   to   the
Province,   and  that  this  and   that
should  be  done respecting it.    Another will  argue by the column for
a systematic  policy   in   regard   to
roads   and   trails.     Other   papers
have   their    favorite   subjects,   on
which   they  expatiate   with   loving
tenderness    bordering    on    tears.
They are all   questions of moment;
no one  would  for an instant think
of disparaging  them.    There   are
many things that demand   ihe early
and earnest  attention of the Legislature.     This   is  recognised on all
sides.    There is no dispute, for example, as to  the  necessity of dealing with the question of  Mongolian
immigration.    On this  point there
is   absolute    unanimity,    not   only
among the candidates in the Nelson
Riding but in all Ridings and  with
all leaders.    They may not agree as
to the   manner of treatment.     Mr.
Martin would challenge the Federal
authority, and keep the Province in
a   ferment    by   enacting   and   re-
enacting   legislation   in   entire  disregard  of the constitution and of
Imperial policy and obligation.  Mr,
Wilson   would   take   another   and
saner   course.     Mr.  Cotton   does
not specify his  policy, but he would
do  something.    Mr.   Fletcher  and
Mr. Keen would oppose the threatened  Mongolian  invasion,  but  by
legitimate means and through legitimate   channels.      So   would   Mr.
Mackintosh, who sees harm instead
of good in  violent  agitation of the
question,   which   only  retards   the
progress   and    prosperity   of    the
Province.
But this is not the only question
of general public interest, as we
shall see if we consult the election
addresses. There are dozens of
others, and it is curious to observe
the unanimity of sentiment respecting them. Candidates of all stripes
are in practical agreement in regard
to most of them. Why lash ourselves into excitement over matters
about which there is no dispute !J
Why bother with them at all ?
There is really only one question
before the electors. Not only the
first, but substantially the only,
duty of the people in this election
is to return a Legislature that will
give steadiness to tiie political situation, restore confidence by frowning on agitation, encourage the
investment of capital, and thus bring
A day or two ago The Miner
published a special conveying the
intelligence that a number of American capitalists had arrived in Winnipeg on their way to the gold
mines in the Lake of the Woods
district. They were made much of
at Winnipeg, and entertained sumptuously. We in British Columbia
are apt to elevate our noses in the
air and regard with lofty contempt
any suggestion of Western Ontario
as a mining region. That is where
we display our ignorance, for Western Ontario is rich in gold, as several producing mines bear evidence. Winnipeg, at any rate, has
faith in it, and on the strength of its
faith has organised one of the most
influential Chambers of Mines in
the world. It has for patrons the
Governor-General, Lord Minto; the
Canadian High Commissioner,
Lord Strathcona ; His Honor, Lieutenant-Governor Patterson ; the
Canadian Premier, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, and the Hon. Senator Cox.
It has for Honorary Presidents, the
Manitoba Premier, Mr. H. J. Macdonald and the Hon. Mr, Aylmer.of
Quebec. Its President is Mr. Sto-
bart, of Winnipeg, a leading wholesale merchant. Its Vice-Presidents
are Lt.-Gen. Sir Henry Wilkinson,
ind Mr. Chadwick, of Rat Portage,
ind Mr. Bole, of Winnipeg. Its
Secretary is Mr. F. H. Malcolm,
formerly of Johannesburg. And its
General Committee is composed of a
hundred of the best men in Central
Canada, men who are building up a
country that will be a marvel to the
nations before the world is a quarter of a century older.
The Chamber is fashioned on the
plan of that of Johannesburg, and is
to serve a similar purpose. By keeping the world constantly informed
of its resources and development,
the latter procured for South Africa
in the brief space of half a dozen
years the investment of the enormous sum of .��250,000,000. The
Central Canada Chamber of Mines
will not do this much for Western
Ontario, but it will do considerable
and hasalready achieved something.
How much better it would be for
Kootenay if, instead of setting labor
and capital at each other's throat,
we were to cultivate some sort of
sanity and form a Chamber of
Mines to do as much for us! Hen.,
however, the scabious politician has
the floor, and for the moment everything has to yield to him.
One of the wildest correspondents at the Coast is the imaginative
individual who serves The Toronto
World from Vancouver. He is
evidently a member of the local
World's stuff, as both papers a few
days ago contained a sensational
story of meditated diabolism on the
part of the Canadian Pacific Company. The Vancouver World was
obliged to make an abject retraction of its inventions, and The
Toronto World will probably have
done the same before this.

"We believe," says The Vernon
News, "that, with probably one exception, every seat east of Vancouver will return candidates opposed
to Mr. Martin." Very likely, but
this is not enough. It isas necessary
to return candidates opposed to Mr,
Cotton as it to oppose Mr. Martin.
Personally Mr. Cotton would not be
as dangerous a man as Mr. Martin,
but to vote him and his party into
power would be to leave the Province still boiling in the cauldion of
discontent, uncertainty, and agitation. What is required is to lift it out
of that cauldron, and give it time
and opportunity to cool off.

Hi ���- NELSON DAILY MINER, SUNDAY. MAY so.   1900.
To the Electors of the Nelson
Riding of tho Wost
Kootenay Electoral District :
(Iknti.icmkn���Ah tlm nominee "t the
Conservative party I beg to offer myself
as a candidate at tlm oiuiiing general
eleotion to represent you in the Legislative Assembly of this Provinoe.
The time Iiuh arrived wln'ii nil parties
are fully alive to the fact that the future
welfare ot our Province demands a
sound, fair and luinuHt business administration and that any great popular
Party   mini     appeal     t>>    other    and
higber considerations than those ot individual fear of josh, nr hope of gain.
I oonsidor it tho duly of every member
elected, to ho a Provincinliat to tho extent of the best interests ot tho Province
tinil, last and always, nnd In support all
good legislation with Hint object in view
In asking you fur ymir support, 1 will
state that I am opposed to hasty legislation of any kind, hut particularly with
respect to our Alining I.iiwh, OS tending
to'jeopardize business interests and to divert oupital: for instance, twice tho Legislature has passed Alien Exclusion
Lowa and they are now for the second
time seeking to repeal them alter having
dune considerable mischief, nnd damage.
With regard to tho Eight-Hour Law, I
am opposed to any change in tho law
as it now stands.
Shorter hours for all classes of labor
is no new idea, but iu my opinion the
prinoiple should ho such as to appeal  to
all Sections of tho Community as being
lyit only a necessity nnd beneficial to all,
but in keeping witli the goueral advancement of our civilization.
I would advocate the amendment nnd
strict enforcement of tho 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
more clearly defined, for the purpose of
avoiding litigation ; and with regard to
oo-ownership, to introduce nn inexpensive and speedy mode of ranking n co-
owner hoar his share ot assessment cr
relinquish his interest.
I am in favor of an amendment to our
Kohool Laws bo as to give Cities the control of the Schools iu their midBt.
A fair Redistribution Act should he
passed as soon as possible.
I would advocate tho bringing into
foroe of the Torren's Aot, provided it is
made optional ; ns the cost in a great
many cnseB will he excessive and out of
all proportion to any benefit to ho derived,

Systematic way.
. Our undeveloped natural resources
should receive moro attention, and be
more widely advertised in order to attract

With regard to cheap foreign labor I
believe, where the remedy is an Imperial
matter, in view of the stand our Province

giving both lives nud money, the desired
end can be gained if properly sought,

I am opposed lo nny clique or faction
