Sinking Ship.
London, Juno 5.��� 8:20 a.m.���Ot ofifl-
cial intelligence regarding what is
transpiring outsido Pretoria, thero is
I it I la- or nothing ooming.
Lord Roberts in silent, Keveiibole's,
by piecing Items together from various
correspondent?, it would .seam that
Lord Huberts' immediate army is all cm-
pwjfed north off Johannesburg, except
one brigade, wiiit b is at Johannesburg.
Bix oolumus are converging on Pretoria,
An uiidiileil news agency message from
Pretoria, via LoreDZO Marquez, June
,1 nun llli, says: "Pretoria in now invested by the British. No resistance
will be offered. Tho oity will be surieu-
dered by tbe Iiurghninnster as soou as a
formal demand is made." The message
purports to coma in cipher.
President Kruger Commands tbo telegraph eastwards from Pretoria,, and
telegraphic news from Pretoria to 1/ir-
en/.o Mariiuey. has ceased, but messages
of newspaper correspondents continue
to pass lo and tro on the railway, The
latest to arrive at Lorenzo Marquez being nluiut event', nt the capital lo a late
hour Friday night. At. that time according lo these sources of information
the military leaders had quite recover-
from tbe panic and had determined to
defend the town.
One message, which is dated June 1,
says: "Pretoria is full of strange burghers, bnt most of Ihe commandos are
laagered outside. A great war council
of Generals has just concluded its deliberations. The decision as to the
future military ci.urse has not been
made known. Louis Botha and Delary
sat in this council.
Another despatch brought to Loreiiso Marquez, and dated Pretoria
Friday at midnight, says: "The war
council assumed the powers of government. Its members declare that the
Capital may) still be successfully defended. One commander declared
"with tlie help of (lod, the hour will
still come when Great Britain will
acknowledge the independence of the
two Republics. A tremendous change
will yet come over the situation."
General Delary said that Pretoria
would be defended to the utmost,
adding: "There is every chance
that we will yet beat the enemy out."
President Kruger is somewhere to
the eastward but is in constant wire
communication with the leaders here.
There is however a deep feeling of
anger against him on account of what
is now called bis unnecessary lliglit,
and because he and the officials took
all the, gold and left their subordinates
The latest phase nf publio opinion is
a marvellous revival of nonrago.   From
Lorenso Martinez oomeB a despatch dated June 4th, taying: "It. is known that

Krnger's seoretary and physician, particularly their secret visit to the Dutch
warBhip  Friesland,   which   is   in   the
harbor^bere,   have aroused a snspioion
that  important   personages    are    expected.
The news   from  the   minor  theatres
of hostilities ia less cryptic.   The Boer
operations to break Lord Koberls  com-
V innioations hnve been completely bnf-
fied,   and  the   Boer   column    aro  in
danger   of  being   sorronnded   by   the
British  forces  at  Ficksburg, Scneoal,
Htilbron and Lindley.
General Rundle, im teatl of throwing I the enemy were
himself against the Boers entrenched at "     ~~' *
Bedulpherp, moved toward  Ficksburg
aud wUblisheJ  communications with
General Brabant. The Boors marohed parallel with General Bundle, intending to
seize a strung positiou on the Ficksburg road, but Bundle got thero first.
The fifteen hundred Boers who were in
this movement are now reported to be
goiug olaewhere. The correspondent
with General Bundle continues to point
out tint hardness of tlio light of last
Tuesday, hut ho believes It will be the
last real resistance. (Jolouel Lloyd was

Mahon affected a juncture with Hunter on Thursday at Marieboga.
Lomlon, June 5,���The Lorenso
Marques correspondent of the Times,
telegraphing June I, says: "Lorenso
Marques is crowded with foreigners
who had been assisting the Boers up
to a few days ago. Now, like the
proverbial rat, they are leaving the
sinking ship. The more intelligent
speak any way but favorable of the
treatment they received at the hands
of the Boers. Many of them, after
months of service in the field
linil theruBelves penniless, for only in
exceptional cases lias any remuneration
been granted, This is contrary to tbe
Understanding upon which many of
them accepted service. Tbe Germans,
both civil and military,   appear   lo he
rticiilnily disgusted with the conduct
of tlie Transvaal Government. Not a
few Irish-AiuericauB, some of whom only
recently joined, are reluming to tbe
United States."
London, June I���London is today
enjoying Whit Monday as a bonk
holiday and is not disturbed by engagements between the Boers and British
in Soutli Africa.
The public here tiro full of confidence
that Robert* will reach Pretoria before
many hours have elapsed. Towards
that goal he is presumably pressing.
The latesl explanation of the delay
consists in the supposition that he is
giving seveial columns of his think an
opportunity to advance and envelope
such of the Boeis as   arc still  in  the
neighborhood of Pretoria.

Lllgt'ln and others.
Speaking at Norlblleld on Saturday
evening, W. W. B, Miliums said with
reference to bis father's position he
would let the audience into a family
secret. Forjtho past two years his
father bad been in communication
with the authorities at Ottawa in relation to resigning, being sick aud tired
of the worry.
Mr Tinner: "Tbat is Untrue."
Mr. Melnnes: "That is not an untruth and the records at Ottawa will
bear me ont."
it is rumored that a mobilization of
the Mainland Fifth Kegiinenta will
take place in Victoria ubout the beginning of July.
The news was received this morning
from San Francisco of the death there
ou Saturday of live Chinese from Bubonic plague, is sufficiently alarming
to awaken sentiments of the greatest
apprehension at this port. Fortunately
the unremitting vigilance of Dr. Watt,
ami Inter of Dr. Biggins also, ut
Williams Head, and the modern plant
which the Dominion Qovernment hns
placed there to light the epidemic, has
kept Victoria's bill of health clean.
To this efficient system the authorities at Ottawa have within the last
two days added another precaution,
namely that, Uot only must boats
from San Francisco be examined at
the head, but that Chinese from that
port must undergo fourteen days quur-
ntine before being allowed to land
here.    This prompt action,  which wus
'oinniunicatcd to the Provincial
Board of Health on Saturday will
under the circumstances, meets with
general approval.
Bnt Dr. Fagan, seoretary of the
board proposes to go still further than
this if ho can secure tbe en-operation
of tbe Legislature. He has laid before
the Government,tbiongb tbe Attorney-
General, a list of the recommendations
which, if ciystalized into law, will
cause a sanitary revolntion in the
qnarter which it .will affect. One ol
the Doctor's recommendations is that
ail Cliinese and Japaneat present
themselves for medical examination
every six months, or evory month in
timo of snnh danger as at present.
Certificates of hoallh will be granted,
such certificate to ho prodnoed on demand   by tbo   constituted   nntborities.
Hossliuid, I!. 0��� June t-Mr. G. W.
Armstrong and A D.Coplau.of Hpokaue
are in ihe city. The latter is the
President of thu Giant Mining Company and the former came here for
the purpose of resuming operations on
the propeity of the Giant which was
stopped about flueo months ago when
Senator Turner. Colonel Bidpath and
Mr. Sanders bad an option on the control of the stock of the company. Mr.
Armstrong says tbat a syndicate composed of Philadelphia and Michigan
capitalists havo obtained conttol of the
Giant Company's stock and intend  to
push its development   M. E. Puroell
has been engaged to tnke charge of the
work and operations are to be started
with Mr. Phippcii, counsel for the
License    Holder's     Association,    iu
which he  states   that the Prohibition
Bill wonld   lie  nullified  through the
deed of surrender executed by the
Hudson   Hay   Company   ill   1809,    The
corporation at thai, time surrendered
attained rights of administration ami
other privileges, with conditions and
exceptionssel'forth ill ailceil which was
an agreement  between the Company
and the Dominion ami Imperial
authorities, and therefore not subjeot
to   the   Provisions   of  the   Provincial
Qovernment,   tine clause of tho deed
of surrender provides that the Company shall he at liberty to carry on
its trade without hindrance iu its
corporal ion capacity, and no exceptional tax is to be placed ou the
Company's land, trade or servants.
It is heli! that the prohibition measure     would   be    a   hindrance to   the
Company's trade.
Premier Macdonald was Interviewed
on the question this afternoon and
said that the point raised wns an arguable ono anil would have to he decided
by the Courts. The Qovernment would
not withdraw the bill, however, but
wonld let it go before the House ami,
if passed, the Coutls would he asked to
give a ruling ou the disputeti points at
When asked as to whether a bill hindering the Comdauy  from  trading in
furs would be iilttaviics, Mr. Maodonald replied. "Undoubtedly the present
luwa restricting the hunting of fur-
bearing animals were passed with tint
consent and by the request of the Company.
"Is the prohibition measure being
passed at tbe request of the company?" "No, they aro rather quiescent about the matter."
"If the oourts decide in favor of tbe
Oompuuy will tho bill ho nullified ?"
' 'It would uppear at least aa if the
Company would be given n monopoly
of the liquor tiafflc."
"That would not, aooord with tbe
eqnal right's plank of your platlorui
Mr. Macdonald?" "No, of course tbo
Government would hardly allow the
Company a monopoly."

although his address was punctuated
with spirited applause a large number
of times. When Mr, Curbs undertook
to show his auditors why they should

from the Houston side of the house,nnd
when he referred to Dr. Hall as, to bis

and elicited continuous applause from
an audience almost wholly opposed to

More interest attached to what Mr.
Curtis wonld Bay ,of thu candidates

might make. A great dual of curiosity
had been manifested as to the occasion
of bis visit, hut this was satisfied early
in the evening. He bad come, he said,
to set Mr. Martin and Inn government
right in the eyes of the Nelson people
and to refute niatuments which had
linen inailii by Mr. Balph Smith nnd
Mr.llait tliornwniie during their recent
visit to the oity. Almost bis entire

speeches of these two gentlemen.
Later, when referring to the oan
didaies iu the Nelson Biding he claim-
that both Mr. Fletcher anil Mr. Honston, no matter how sincere they may
be, would, if eleoted, bu compelled to
associate with men who, because of
pledges made, would not sot in
the   best   interests   of   tho Kootenays.
At Ibis point Mr. Curtis was handed
a written i|Uestiolt. asking him which
of the three candidates In the  Nelson

Five days  more, and   then   the
people will have  the  whole  matter
in their own  hands.    So   far   the
politicians and the newspapers have
had the floor.    They have been the
advocates   in   the   case,   and   the
people  have   been  the   jury.    On
Saturday  the  case goes  to  them.
There  has  been no Court functionary to swear them, but by virtue of
their  franchise  they   are   under  a
moral   obligation   to   rendei a  true
verdict according to the evidence.
They are expected to cast aside all
prejudice, whether for or  against,
and to decide  as  honest  and  true
men, according to their best judgment and with a single  eye   to  the
public good.    We know that many
of them will not do this.   We know
that in all elections there are members of every  party who vote from
personal or selfish motives, without
regard to the interests of the country.    But  the  man   who  feels his
responsibility   as  a  citizen   knows
that   his   franchise   is   a   trust, and
will   biing conscience to the marking of his ballot as he would to the
discharge of any other duty.
Although five days  more remain,
the work of the advocates is practically at an end.    Little or nothing
is  to  be gained by argument from
now on; the people have made up
their   minds, and   what  really  remains it to complete the  organisation and get out  the  vote.    There
is  nothing left to urge in behalf of
one  candidate  or  against  another
that has not already  been said.     If
there   are   any   still   wavering   it is
not  because  of incompleteness   in
the presentation of the  case.    The
Miner  has  thought  it  its duty to
oppose the election of Mr. Houston
as   the   most   undesirable   of   the
three   candidates.    Political rest is
the one great necessity of the situation   in   British Columbia, and Mr.
Houston's election would contribute
the   least   to   securing  it.    He  is
essentially a living  part of the disturbing element, and  however honest his intentions and irreproachable
his motives, his return would be an
aggravation ot the disorder it should
be the desire of all good citizens to
As evidence of the deplorable
mess into which our politics has fallen it is only necessary to refer to
the attitude of The Victoria Times,
an able and respectable journal,
controlled by a Dominion Senator,
And supposed, therefore, to have in�� ]
telllgent knowledge nf our system of
Parliamentary government. It is
supporting in its own city a member ofthe Martin Government, and
opposing Mr. Martin himself; it is
supporting two Government and
two Opposition candidates, and is
using its influence to secure the defeat of the two other Government
candidates and the two of the Opposition. What better evidence
of the confusion that hurts
could be given than this? It may
look like wanton inconsistency and
reckless trifling, but is it not rather
the fault of the situation than of the
newspaper? Mr. Houston is the
candidate of a party that has little
strength in the country and will
have no influence in tlie House; Dr,
Hall represents a p_rty that makes
no pretension to political control;
how can the situation be steadied by
the election of cither of these? The
only remedy for the existing confusion is to elect Mr. Fletcher, who
is in sympathy with the political
element in the Province that has
candidates in all the constituencies
and who expect to be returned in
sufficient numbers to form a strong
Government. It would be little
short of a public calamity to be disappointed in this expectation, and
Nelson ought not to make the mistake of increasing the risk by the
defeat of Mr. Fletcher.

\V. A. Maodonald has posted n notice
in front of liis house across the lake
warning all peisons not to trespass on
the property. During the last few
Weeks there have been several ai tides
stolen from tbe house, which was broken into for the purpose. Tho doors
were all locked and therefore thu entry
ofthe house was a seiious offense.
Among the articles stolen were a number of window shade* and a lot of oil
cloth. In addition to this tho grounds
have been badly treated, a number of
tlie fruit trees being injured and
plants trampled down. Sunday afternoon Mr, Macdonald was out on tbe
hike nnd noticed a party of Chinamen
landing at the place. Ho followed them
end found them in the honse. They
were promptly bustled out and, taking
jo their boat, made for Chinatown, Mr.
Macdonald followed them and they
landed at the 0. P. II. wharf and hid
under a part of the planking. Tbo
police were telephoned for and in a
shurt while Chief Jurvis appeared. Hiatal Mr, Macdonald rounded up the offenders in a shack in Chinatown, wheie
they were given to understand that nny
further depredations would lead to their
arrest. No further trouble is anticipated from tbem, but tho plnoo has been

they were off Five Mile Point, and near

in the water, seemingly clinging to au

made for bim. When he was close
alongside they saw that be wbb sup-
porting himself on two logs, and, fully
dressed, was propelling himself towards the shore, They invited him
into the boat thinking, nattirallv, tbat
he was in need of iissistuuce. To their
sin prise, ho declined, saying that be
was on his way across the lake and
could do very well by himself und did
not want anyone's help. Tbey Ihen
offered to tow hiin ncroBS but ho refused, siiwit g he wai iu uo hurry as ho had
plenty of time to make the crossing.
He was seen by several other people who
went to his assistance only to be met by
the same response. Oue gentleman,
who wus out iu his canoe, says he was
in the witter for nearly four hours and
that when bo made bis landing on tbe

To the Electors ofthe Nelson
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District :
'3-nti.emkn���Aa the nominee of the
Conservativepurty I beg to offer myself
as a candidate at the coming general
eleotion to represent you iu the Legislative Assembly of this Provinoe.
The l une bus nrrived when all pnrtios
are fully alive to the fact that the future
welfare of our Provinoe demands n
sound, fair aud honest business administration aud tbat any great popular
Party must appeal to other and
higher considerations than those ot individual fcur of loss, or hopo of gaiu.
I oonsider it tbe duty of every member
eleoted, to be n Proviiicialist to the extent ot the best interests of the Proviuce
first, lost and always, and to support all
good legislation with that objeot iu view
In linking you for your support, I will
state that t am oppoaetl to busty legislation of nny kind, but particularly with
reBpeot to onr Mining Laws, as tending
to jeopardize buaine8B in I crests aud to divert oapital: for instance, twice the Legislature baa passed Alien Exclusion
Laws and thoy arc now tor the Becoud
time m-oking to repeal them after baviug
done considerable mischief.and damage.
Witb regard to tbe Eight-Hour Law, I
am opposed to any change in tbe law
as it now elands. Shorter hours for all
classes of labor is no new idea, but in
my opinion the principle ehould he such
as to appeal to all Sections of the Community as being not only a neoesBily aud
benefioial to all, but in keeping witb the
general advance ment of our civilization.
I would advocate the amendment aud
strict enforcement of the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, so as to more effectually proteot the lives of workmen.
Witb regard to tbe Mineral Act: I
would endeavor to have certain scotionB
more clearly defined, for the purpose of
avoiding litigation ; and witb regard to
oo-ownership, to introduce an inexpensive end speedy modect making a co-
owner bear his share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am in favor of an amendment to our
School Lawn so as to give Cities tbe control of the Schools in tbeir midst.
A fair Rediatribution Aot should be
passed as soon aa possible.
I would advocate tbe bringing into
foroe of the Torren's Aot, provided it is
made optional ; as the cost in a great
many cases will be excessive aud out of
all proportion to any benefit to be do-
I would urge the speedy construction
of a Court House iu Nelson, equal to
tbe requirements of this di-triot,
I would strongly advocate inorensed
Orauta for ttoada, Trails and Bridges
wherever snob will upbuild cud develope
onr Proviuce, more especially in the
Mining Distriota, and all auch expenditure to be placed in capable nnd experienced hauda to be denlt witb iu n
systematic way.
Our undeveloped natural resources
abould receive more attention, and be
more widely advertised in order to attract
Witb regard to obeap foreign labor I
believe, where the remedy ia an Imperial
matter, in viowof the atand our Province
nnd Country baa taken in tbo present, war
giving both lives nnd money, tbe desired
ond can bo gaiucd if properly sought,
without bringing about a serious misunderstanding with the Dominion Government aud entailing deplorable agitation
na wo require poaoenutl proaperity in our
I am opposed to any clique or faction
ot politioal agitators wboae principle aim
is to embarrass and retard the business
of Iho Proviuce for purely personal ad
van cement.
I strongly condemn the notions of tbe
Lieut.-Covernor na being nu invasion of
the prinoiple of responsible government

Gentlemen. ���In response to numerously signed requisitions asking me to
he a candidate for the Provincial Log-
islatnrjat the foithcoming election, I
have consented to enter the contest as
au Independent Liberal.
I have the honor, therefore to solicit
your votes and inllu9iice, and if eleot-
ed I shall do my utmost to secure for
the Province honest, economical and
progressive government.
A brief outline of some of the principles which I think should lie embodied iu tlie Legislative Aots is given
I have the honor to be gentlemen.

G. A. B. HALL.
1. The principle of eight hours constituting a legal day's work should he
recognized and strictly enforced.
3. Steps should immediately bo
taken through the proper channels to
pievent thd immigration into this
couutry of Chinese and Japanose labor
8, Two dollars and a half per day
should bu the minimum wago of unskilled labor throughout the Proviuce
on all government works.
4. A fair wage hill slionld be introduced requiring the payment of stand-
aid wages ou all works to which the
Province contributes subsidies or uid
in any form.
fi. The establishment of a labor
bureau under the direction of n Minister of the Crown, whose duty it Bhall
be among other things, to collect labor
statistics, ond   to act  as   a  mediator
between employers and workmen in
all cases of actual ot threatened
strikes with power to call nnd examine witnesses and compel disclosure
of all material facts iu connection
with such disputes.
0, I believe thut trunif roads should
be built and maintained by tho government and encouragement given to
miners to extend those roads. Such
work should bo directed by competent
government engineers. Where trails
are required to single or small groups
of elnims rlie cost of such trails, if
built by the claim ownerH on the approval and under direction of a government iiiDseotor or engineer, shall
apply us   assessment   upon the claims.

practicable by construction or purchase.

can be best served by a permanent

should bo made by reason of merit und
uot of political influence.

Do the People of the Nelson Riding Desire a Return of It.
In 1898 this Province turned down Turnerism. It had a hold on the country for
years and presumed it could hold on ad infinitum but the people began to realize that
unless an effort was made to unloose its
grasp there would soon be nothing left of
the public domain. To elect Mr. Fletcher
would be a retrograde movement, because
he is avowedly in favor of Turnerism. It
would mean either a repeal of the Eight-
Hour law or amendments which would
make it of no value to the miners and others
it was intended to protect. Vote for Hall
who has always been the friend of labor
and determined to save the lands of the
Province for the people.
If the electors ofthe Nelson Riding send
Dr. Hall to Victoria-and they are going
to do it - they will have the best representative they have ever had and one who would
prove much better than cither Mr. Fletcher
or Mr. Houston. Dr. Hall is a man of
the people. His experience, gleaned from
his visits to every mining camp in ibis
vicinity and his intercourse with miners
during the past several years, fits him to
properly Care for the miners' interests in the
House at Victoria. He knows, loo, as
well as any man, how the interests o\' (he
merchants and the business men in all lines,
can best be served. He is a friend of the
day laborer, the man who toils in the sun
and in the rain, and as bis friend will see
that he is properly cared for. Dr. Hall
has done more than either Mr. Fletcher or
Mr. Houston to better the condition ofthe
laboring man in Nelson anil by their votes
they will repay him next Saturday. There
are many, too, who know another Bide of
the doctor; many who have been mused
hack  lo   health and strength by him when
they have been without money and without
friends. These men will remember the
doctor's kindness to them.
Candidate Fletcher being "called" at this
point of the game, has thrown down the
Turner ace he held up his sleeve and asks
the old party to return him to Victoria
where he expects to play the old game
again with the "Big Four" of a kind.
A Man is Judged by the Company He
Keeps.���Candidate Houston says a man is
to be judged by the company he keeps; so
be it. It is not so long ago that one of
his chief supporters tried to deprive a force
of miners ofthe wages justly due them for
work done for a company of which the supporter was a prominent member. Yours
is bad company John.
If the mountain will not come to Ma-
hamot, Mahomet will go to the mountain.
The Tumerites are pledged not to recognize party lines, but Messrs. Fletcher and
Macdonald say the Wilson Conservatives
will join Turner. Therefore a vote for
Mr. Fletcher is a vote for Turnerism,
Candidate Fletcher's failure to reply to
any of the questions asked him in regard
to the names which the Conservatives succeeded for a lime in keeping off the voters'
list, makes him, in the minds of everyone,a
parly to that infamous act. And this will
be temembered next Saturday.
Ymir yesterday
Candidate I lall went lo
where he will have things practically his
own way on election day. The thinking
men of Ymir have chosen him as the man
they will support and are using every effort
toward his election.
Fletcher is for Turnerism and bail government; Houston is for Cottonism and
bad government; Hall is for equal rights
for all men and special favors for none,
therefore good government Which of the
three do ihe people want?

A Quiet Little Meeting Does Considerable Business.
Smith Curtis' counter attraction in
the Opera House last night did not deter the Mayor, and Aldermen McKil-
lop, Wilson, Morrison and Irvine from
attending the regular meeting ot the
City Council. It was a featureless
meeting but considerable business was
The Public Works Committee recommended, among other things of minor
importance, that the basement of the
publio school be supplied with electric
lights and that the Municipal Band,
which practices there, be supplied
with lights free; that Richard
Street from Stanley to Ward be made
passable for teams; that stone curbing
be laid ou the south side of Baker
from Josephine to Ward and that
a lifteen-foot sidewalk be laid on the
same   block ;   that  a fifteen-foot side-
alk be laid on the east side of Josephine from Victoria to Baker; that
the contract with Strncliau Bros, for
putting in water connections be terminated and that the city do the
work in future. The hospital wns
grunted SO per cent, rebate on its
ilectrie light service.
The Finance Committee reonmmend
ed the payment of the payioll, ainouut-
ing to over $1,500, and also that various
amounts be paid.
Some applications for street improve
mtnts were leferred to the Board of
Public Works. Nurse Fahey refused to
reduce her amount for services rendered at the i mull pox hospital and the
amount iu full was ordered paid.
Aid. McKillopgave notice that at the
next meeting he will introduce a bylaw
fixing the rate ot taxation for the year
It was decided to lay a 15-foot sidewalk ou the east side of Stanley Slreei
from Baker Street to the alleyway, and

There is something like $2,6(10 owing the oity hy delinquent citizens wh<

Tbe Board of Works prepared an
estimate of the amount desired for
public works for the year. Tbe total
for sewers was 815,275, water 118,500,
electric light $11.740. The ratepayers
will be asked to vote on a $75,win bylaw to cover these anionnts, and to
provid3 $35,000 for Btraet improvements. Last year $15,0011 was voted
and debentures not issued so that
amount will leave $tiii,oii(), wbioh tbe
oity will actually be asked for. If the
by- law is passed the debenture debt of
Ihe city will be 8250,000. By law
Nelson could go as high as $400,000 on
the present assessment.
