The following is a partial list of the
[nominations y sterday in various parts
| of the Province:
South   Eaat Kootenay���Government,
Some twenty odd members of labor
unions gathered at Fraternity Hall
In Nelson Friday evening and passed
a resolution endorsing John llnuston
Mid pledging Unit gentleman their
Support in the ensuing election. According to Mr, Houston's paper there
nie SU1I union men in Nelson and yet he
tokos8 half column on liis first page
and a similar amount on the editorial
page to tell liis readers what less than
.10 of these union men have done.
He uses it as Joe Martin uses his now
famous letter from Sir Wilfred Laurier,
merely as a bluff in the hojie that it
will lie swallowed by the laboring
men of the Nelson Riding. But this
Riding is fortunate in the possession
of Intelligent laboring' men and they
will not rise to the bait. A Miner
man talked with every union mentioned as having bad "delegates" at
the meeting iu question and learned
that the meeting wns not representative of the Trades and Labor Council
of Nelson. It wns. to nse a common
expression, "pneked," and as one of
those present said afterwards, some of
the delegates were merely giving Mr.
Houston their "moral" support;
when it came to voting things would
be different, It would he an insult
to the laboring men of Nelson to intimate that N(H) of them would follow
blindly in the steps of 30 of their
number, In regard to the Ymir delegates, whom Mr. Houston says were
not allowed admission because tbey
came without credentials, the following will prove interesting:
To tho Editor.���Kindly allow me to
make use of yonr columns to correct a
misstatement in the Tribnne in connection with the convention of the
Trades and Labor Council whioh endorsed Mr. Honston. In the first place
tiie Ymir delegates did not forget tbeir
nrodentiiils, nor did they need any
since they gained admission without
them. In the second place tbey were'
instructed not to take any aotive part,
nor wonld they from the fact that the
Ymir Miners' Union hnd already endorsed the candidature of Dr. Hall on
Wednesday night last. They simply
ui'in there to notify that convention of
what action hud been taken at Ymir
and .-late their views of the situation
from a labor standpoint. As It was
about 10 p. m. when they reached tbe
hall Ihe convention had already passed
the resolutions endoising Mr. Honston.
The convention thin cordially Invited
them to explain their views on tbn
situation which they did, and than requested permission to retiro from ths
hail ns they had no authority to vote
on nuy question at that convention.
They wero then permitted to retire,
and the meeting adjourned hofore the
Ymir delegates reached tho door a
friendly conversation was then indnlg-
cd in during which several delegated
expressed their regret that the Ymir
delegates had not been there to express
thsir   views   before    resolutions   were

(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London, May 20.���The events of the
last few days have brought the internal politics of Great Britain once
more to the fore. This is especially
traceable to the bye elections which
took place this week in the Isle of
Wight . division of Hampshire, and
in South Manchester, at which the
Conservatives enormously increased
their majorities. The latter e lection
is described by Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, Secretary of the State for the
Colonies, in a congratulatory telegram
to Hon. William Peel, the successful candidate, as being a splendid
viotory for tho Imperial forces,
It is learned that it was an Imperial
viotory in more senses than one, for!
the defeated Liberal candidate, Mr.
Lief Jones, was opposed not only to
the Unionist machinery, but by tbn
strenuous efforts of that portion of his
own party whieli is led by Lord Rose-
berry and known as the Liberal Imperialists.
In fact Lord Rosberry and those who
pin their political faith, to the ex-
Premier, regarded Manchester as the
crucial point of their struggle to turn
the party to their own way of thinking. The Liberal candidate hnd pronounced anti-war views and, had he
been successful, it would have sounded
the death knell of Lord Roseberry's
chances for ever again leading the
party and might have forced him either
to permanently retire or form a separate organization.
Lord Rosebery's followers are
privately jubilating over the Unionists' sweeping victory, to which they
contributed by sendiug to Manchester
confidential envoys. It is now believed the bulk of the Liberals must
see in Liberal Imperialism the only
plank whereby they can hope to return to power. Tho vaat majority of
Englishmen, regardless of party are
evidently strongly in favor of the
war. This sentiment, Lord Roseliery
believes, can be manipulated so as to
give the Liberals a fighting chance at
the next election. South Manchester
and the Isle of Wight have greatly
strengthened the bands of Lord Rose-
berry's _folluwers,*and have made the
Liberal leader's retnm to active
political    life   almost a certainty.
There is no trnth in a report that
Lord Roseberrv will form n ooalition
witb Mr. Joseph Chamberlain. What
Lord Roseberry bas had in mind during
tho past few months has been an aotive
campaign against tbe Government for
its dilutoriness in waging the war, and
a sweeping agitation for a common
sense reform of the array. This, oom-
binod with expansion of tbe empire
aud tho social and economic planks
whioh have always distinguished tbe
party, would, be believes, give him a
fair obanoe of leading the nuw disintegrated and discredited party to
viotory.
While tbe bye elections have elatod
tbe Roseberryites and depressed the so-
called "little Englanders," they have
also caused the Conaervatives to speou-
lato upon tbe desirability of an early
dissolution. In spite of the previous
rumors to tbe contrary, it has been
tsoitlv understood among the Cabinet
Ministers that the gene,al eleotion must
await tbe practioal end of the war, if
not the pacification of tbe Transvaal.
Now, however, they find tbey are able
to get snob large majorities from the
' cons:itiiem-ies.t hat it has become a seri
ous question if it would not be better tn
make hay while the suu shines. So
strong is this feeling that, granting
Lord Roberts makes fair progres within
tlie next month, it is quite likely that a
dissolution will occur ut Ihe expiration
of that period, though nothing definite
has yet been agreed upon.
In Parliament the most important
event of Ihe week wns the settlement
of the Australian difficulty, which Mr
Chamberlain ann-unoes us a cjmipro
mise, but which the delegates claim as
a complete concession of their demands. The bill enabling women to
serve as aldermen and councillors of
London, though it has passed it's second reading, will not come up again as
it has little chance of becoming a law.
The Mafekiug rejoicings have
caused the weekly papers to print
serial articles on tho increase of hysterical outbreaks in England and they
ask the question, . "Is the race
losing its characteristics'.1" A curious
feature of the demonstrations was the
enormous number of buttons bearing
"Baden-PoWcll" nnd "Roberts" photographs. The public, here has taken
up the button fad with an energy
equal to anything iu its history in
America. The hulk of these buttons
were Imported from America, the
shrewd manufacturers having secured
photographs of British officers likely
to become popular.
Major General Baden-Powell, by
the way, is now suffering the fate of
all heroes, in being engaged by rumor
to several young women in various
parts of the country. Like Kitchener,
he will probably live down the
rumors.

went out to strengthen the Royal Canadian Regiment. The letti'. \va., writ-
teO'Troni Cape Town under date of
April 2Qthaud tbe writer said they expected to leave for the front in three
days. Tbe detachment was guarding
_(KH1 Boer prisoners, two of whom were
shot dead two nights previously while
trying to cscipe. General Forester

Montreal, May DO���Lord Strathoona,
who. will move the secnud rending of
l he' Colonial Marriage Hill in tbe
House of Lords Monday, has received
very remarkable promises of support,
From assurances received there are excellent prospects of the bill being enacted this season. The Australian delegates warmly approve of the bill. The
Prince of Wales is expected to be present at the debate. The bill proposes
legnli/.ing iu Great Britain marriages
contracted m tbe Colonies with a de-
Ceased wife's sister.
Brockville, Out., May 20���About a
year ago tbe Canadian Curiinge Company of this city received an or.ler for
a carriage from Johannesburg, South
Africa. Just as the carriage bad been
got ready for shipment the war cloud
appeared on the horizon and a cablegram was received to bold until further notice. Another cable has been
received ordering the goods shipped nt
once. Judging from this Johannes-
burgers must be under the impressiuii
tbat the war is Hearing au end.
(SPECIALS TO TUB llluill.i
London, May 20.���As anticipated
the first news from   Roberts  after his
long silence was the announcement
that the British had crossed the Vaal
River. This is probably General
Button's .column which crossed the
Prays and may be expected to make a
dash at the railroad in the neighborhood of Poteliestroom, whence there is
direct Communication with Johannesburg. Hamilton's column is at Bosh-
bank, which is close to the river,
about eight miles northwest of Wolve-
hoek. Roberts' headquarters may be
expected to also cross the Vaal River
and create a diversion on the Hunk of
any Federal force in the. neighborhood
of Vereiiiugeliing, lis he has only 1.1
miles to travel. Speedy announcement
may lie expected that the British
Commander-in-Chief himself hus
gained a foot-hold In the Transvaal and that he will remove the Federal positlons.south of Johannesburg
in the middle of the coming week,
(leneral Bundle ought to be close to
Bothley by How and It Is expected to
hear of decisive action on llarrisinith
Railway in which part of Buller's
force will co-operate in the direction
of Vanreenan's Pass. Should the
Pretoria bulletin announcing the re-
oceupation of Ileilhron by Federals be
true, it will be a totally unexpected
development as (leneral Ian Hamilton
occupied lleilbron Tuesday and nothing has been  heard   from there since,
Mafeking, May IS.���The entire, garrison paraded this morning to a
thanksgiving service. Colonel Baden-
Powell nddressod tha men saying:
"Wo have been unable to fire a volley
over the gravos of onr killed lieing
fearful of drawing tbe fire of ihe
enemy's gnus."
To-day tbo garrison paid tho Inst
honors to tbo dead, assembling iu the
graveyard nnd bidding good bye to
their fallen comrades. After sounding
tho "last post," tho garrison attempted to sing the national anthem, but
oonld hardly bo heard' aa the men
choked with emotion. Colonel Baden-
Powell waB deeply affected and addressed each unit separately. Ho told
the town guaid that those who wished
wonld be permitted to return to their
civilian avoaation. To the Rhodesia
Column, in a chaiacteristio manner
he said : "Wo'vo kicked ont tho Boer
protectorate.''
KASLO CANDIDATES.
(SI'Ellll.S TO TIM; MIMOIt.)
Kaslo, B. ('.. May :.'H.���It did not
balk Very   much   as though today was
nomination  day iu  British Columbia
as far as Kaslo was concerned, When
Returning Officer Dockstodor stood on
the (lovernmcnt steps and olllcially
announced that he was prepared to
receive-candidates' names, there were
present two of the candidates, one
mining ma" and one reporter.
There were three candidates nominated, namely: Robert V. Green,
independent Provincial Party; John
Keen, ('. B��� Independent Conservative and business men's candidate and
(ieorge Kane, Martiiiite. The candidates lire all ill form for a fortnight's
bard electioneering and they all express themselves as oonfldent of heading the poll oil June B.
Taking a dispassionate view of their
chances, the indications point to a I is being watched by Robert's Scouts,

London, May 27,���Spencer Wilkinson
reviewing tlie situation at Ihe seat of
war for tho Associated Press soys:
'l/ii(l Roberts is keeping a tight hand
on all telegrams in order not to disclose bis movements. After occupying
Rhenoster, he pushed his left wing at
once towards 1'arys, where the Vaal
River waa crossed on Thursday, The
whole army seems to have changed it's
direction to the left as (leneral Hamilton's original right wing waa tnday at
Huschbank, half way from Parys to thu
railway bridge at Viljoen's Drift, which
path on General Hamilton and perhaps
(leneral French to turn the Boers, whilo
General Tucker aud General Pole-Oarew
will attack tbe front. The Boors, as
usual, must be enveloped or go. Special efforts will be made to out olf their
letreat, us Lord Roberts is determined
to capture them if possible, He relies
fully on Hamilton, whose combination of
fire and prndenoe justifies every OOnfl-
denoe. If iho Boers escape to Pretoria
Lord Roberts will probably follow
swiftly and bo at Pretoria in less than a
wsek.
"The Boers say they have retaken
lleilbron. Lord Roberts will not neglect precautions that will guard the
railway, which 1 think he will not
wait to repair before going to Pretoria.
'(leneral Buller. at Lalng's Nek. is
eight or nine marches from Johannesburg, aupposing that the road is clear.
Lord Roberts' advance must make the
Boers at Volksrust uneasy anil so will
facilitate Buller's advance.
"General Hunter whou at Mafeking
will be eleven marclus from Pietoria
aud it is impracticable therefore for the
liners to make any serious resistance at
Pretoria, where, lo wait, wmildinean to
bo hemmed in between three British
armies.
" Tho Boer plan is to retreat to tho
Lydeubnrg Hills to postpone tho catastrophe, bnt the condition and strength
nf the forces after the coining week's
operations remain to be seen. Possibly
the dilHoulty of securing supplies may
compel General RcbertB to pause on
tho Vaal aud repair tbe railway, thus
giving time to General Buller and
Genera! Hunter to invade tho Transvaal. 1 fancy, however, tbat Lord
Roberts will prsfer Iho bolder conrse
aud try to end tho war right now.
"Many points in the recent operations are obscure. Thus, the long
pause of General Lyttleton at Sunday's
Itiver and tbe subsequent silence suggests I fiat he may co-operate with (leneral Bundle fo finish the Free Staters
resistance. There has lieen no direct
report from General Methuen since
that from Hoopstadt. Ho probably
crossed the Vaal near Parys.
"Lord Roberts marches In n very
broad front with his cavalry wings
thrown forward. General Buller
probably cannot adopt the same
plans In tbe rugged country of Northern Natal, but once Buller is up in
the hills or the tabic lands of the
Transvaal he will be able to spread
out and move rapidly.
" Lord Roberts has a wonderful power
of picking a special nan for every apeo-
ial work. Ian Hamilton, the brilliant
getif ral, was shot to pieces at Majubii iu
Iho Hist war. Since then he has made
a greut mark in training the Indian
army to shtot straight aud was himself
oue of the best ollicera iu India. Another able olllcer is Sir Henry Nicholson,
win, was chief of slaff to General Lock-
hnrd iu Tierhn. He is running all the
transports for Lord Roberts, whose
aimy since it reached Bloemfontein
baa been well supplied. Nothing
shows the great commander more
than his finding bis men and
giving them fi  hand. Lord Roberts himself has incomparable dash
oupled with great cir-
heiiee 1 expect rapid

Ottawa, May 2(1���Mr. Fielding, when
the House met today moved a second
leading of the bill respecting the inscribed stock of Canada in the United
Kingdom. Tbe legislation the Minister of Finunce explained was necessary
to give effect to an arrangement entered Into with the Imperial authorities whereby Canada is to be admitted
to the authorised list for the investment of trustee moneys in the United
Kingdom. Mr. Fielding gave a history of the negotiations with the home
authorities in regard to the matter
down lo 1MH1, when the present Government reviewed these negotiations.
Mr. Fielding at the time took up tbe
mutter witb the Colonial Oflice. Tbe
result of this was a letter from Mr.
Chamberlain selling forth what would
be required of Canada to give her admission to the trustee list. Tho letter
of Mr. Chamberlain's was received last
February.
There wei�� three points in which it
asked legislation hy Canada lu tbe
first plnce it was requested to provide
for tbe inscription and transfer of tbe
Canadian stock nnder the United Kingdom Colonial Stock Act The second
was that Canada should instruct her
financial agents in London to meet nil
the judgments of the Imperial Conrte
in this connection and tho third thst
the Canadian Government should agree
to a disallowance by the imperial
Court of any Canadian legislation
which might be at variance with the
arrangement in so far as it applied to
the Colonial Stook Act Mr. Fielding
explained thnt the first request had already been provided for and there
oould he nothing said against tbe second. As for tbe third the Imperial authorities h.-ul the power of disallowing
aire uly although it is not often oxer-
ciscd, and there could be no objection
to agreeing lo thu request that any
legislation which would vary the issue
of the slock would be a subject for disallowance. The Hill was feed a second

DEMA-
It may be Mr. Fletcher, or it
may he Or. Hall; but tlie successful candidate of the three nominated
yesterday for the Nelson Riding
will not be Mr. John Houston.
And we think it a most fortunate
tiling for Nelson and the Province
that it will not be Mr. Houston.
Not that ihe gentleman is without
ability, or would fail in looking
alter the interests of his constituency. There are other things than
these to consider, however. If
the feeling in the Nelson Riding is
SUCH that Mr. Houston will be certain of election, it is only reasonable to suppose that a similar feeling prevails in constituencies affected by similar conditions. That
would mean quite a number of Mr.
Houstons elected to the next Legislature, sufficient in themselves to
take charge of affairs or, falling
short of that, to hold the balance of
power and dictate terms and impose conditions on the party in
oflice.
What would be the effect on the
Province with the Legislature in
the hands of a dozen or a score of
Houstons? The elector who does
not employ a quiet quarter of an
hour occasionally to think this
question out is not a patriotic citizen, nor is he loyal to his own
interests, What Mr. Houston is
We know from long and intimate
knowledge of him, but if there is
any doubt on the point we have
only lo j;o to his newspaper of yesterday. With him it is all labor;
lie Ins no thought for any oilier
element or interest, "John Houston is the friend of organised
labor." " Candidate, Houston is
the nominee of tbe Labor party."
John Houston ." is the candidate
Whom the friends or the Light-
Hour law have selected as the safest
man to support." John Houston's
defeat "would be a severe blow at
Organised labor." John Houston
is " making the race as the uncompromising advocate of the Kigbt-
1 lout law."
Ihe public may be excused if
they doubt ihe sincerity of these
very noisy, iterated professions.
When we remember that a year ago
Mr. Houston offered to put himself
ami his newspaper at the service of
the mine owners, declaring that the
demands of the miners were beyond
all reason, we are entitled to believe
now that there  is something hollow
in these  very  effusive demonstrations of friendship  for   "organised
labor."    We ate entitled  to believe
that Mr. Houston is a good deal ol
a fraud*     But assuming his   sincerity,   what would   be the effect of a
House  full of such   men?    Do   we
require to be reminded that through
labor agitation tlie  Kootcnays have
already lost   almost a   year   in   the
development     of    their     mineral
wealth?    Put the Legislature in the
hands of a party of Houstons,   and
what  would   be   the   prospects   for
this year, and  the   next,    and   tbe
iiexl?    It Was bad enough last year,
but il would be worse in   the   years
to come,     In   Eastern   Canada,   in
the   United   States,   and   iu   Great
Britain, men who  know of British
Columbia   and thought of investing
their money in   it are awaiting the
result of these elections, in the hope
that our  people  have   gained wisdom from the experience of tbe past
year or two, and are now determined
on stable, rational Government, conducted   on  business  lines.     If we
elect a   Legislature   of   Houstons,
who will  keep   the   air   filled   with
shouts for labor, for  organised  labor, for the demands of labor,   for
tbe rights   of   labor���labor,   labor,
labor, nothing but labor���not a dollar of the  millions   ready   and   anxious for investment will come to us.
Capitalists   will   slum   us   as they
would the plague.    And  what is all
our mineral wealth  without  capital
to develop   it?    A   Legislature   of
Houstons would be a curse to  the
Province.     Intelligent labor will  be
as quick to realise this as any other
interest.     Lverybody with  a  grain
of sense must realise  it.     Lor that
reason we refuse to believe that Mr.
Houston will be  elected   in Nelson;
we refuse even   to  believe   that  he
will   have  a majority   ol the labor
vote, a vote which knows on  which
side its bread is buttered as well   as
any other.
conspicuously sensible and businesslike if no foolish mistakes were
made. In Southeast Kootenay,
for example, there are two Opposition candidates, between whom at
this distance it is impossible to distinguish any difference beyond the
merest shade of a color. Whether
it is worth while to run the risk of
having both deleated for so very
slight a consideration is a question
that must surely occur to men of
good judgment.
11 has been a matter of complaint
for many years past that the Imperial law would not admit of the
investment of trust moneys in
Canadian stock. Tbe question
was made tbe subject of correspondence between Ottawa and Westminster, with the result that last
February Mr. Chamberlain submitted certain conditions under which
the privilege would be granted.
The Dominion Parliament was to
provide for the inscription and
transfer of Canadian stock under
tbe Colonial Stock Act of the
United Kingdom ; provision should
be made to meet all judgments of
the Imperial courts, and the Canadian Government should assent to
the disallowance of any legislation
at variance with these conditions.
On Friday Parliament passed tbe
necessary legislation, and hereafter
Canadian stock will no longer be
barred.

Mr. Houston's paper takes what
it no doubt thinks is a paidonahle
liberty with the truth when it says
that The Miner is championing:
two candidates for the same office.
We might first correct it by saying
that Ihe position of representative in
tbe Legislature is not an office, in
the estimation of one who can fully
appreciate its duties and responsibilities. But to Mr. Houston it
probably is. The Miner is happy
to think there are two candidates
of whom it can say pleasant things,
even though only one can be elected. It is not " boosting " Dr. Hall,
as stated, in the hope of splitting
the labor vote. Dr. Hall himself is
much more suscessful in splitting
that vote than The Miner could
hope to he, and he is doing it at a
rate that is causing Mr. Houston a
good deal of alarm. He has been a
consistent friend of labor, and a
much more disinlerestcd one than
Mr. Houston. While, however,
Tbe Miner has nothing but the most
kinkly feeling for Dr. Hall, and
would be glad to see him beat Mr.
I louslon out of his boots, it hopes
that Mr. Fletcher will leave them
both behind. It believes that Mr.
Fletcher's election would do more
towards steadying the political situation than would Dr. Mall's, and
for that reason supports him. There
can be no party in the Legislature
with whom Dr. Hall could ally himself, and his usefulness would therefore be ver) much curtailed. Men will
be elected to whom the Province is
looking'lor rescue, and with these
Mr. Fletcher is in full sympathy, It
is a matter ol mere business prudence lo elect Mr. Fletcher over
Dr. Hall; il would be a mutter of
the simplest sanity lo elect either of
them over Mr. Houston.

HALL   MINES,   LTD.
Meeting at Which Reconstruction
Scheme Went Through,
The following in regard to the re-
cdnstrnction scheme of the Hall
Mines, Limited, is from tbe Financial
Times, May 1:
An extra-ordinnry general meeting
of the above Company was held yesterday at Winchester House, E. C,
under the presidency of Mr. Robert
Ward.    "
The Secretary (Mr. A. E. Ashley)
having read the notice convening the
meeting, the Chairman said :
Gentlemen:���Our duties today Will
not   keep   us   a   very long time.    The
f'reference shareholders liy a very
arge majority have formally assented
to tbe proposed reconstruction scheme.
The debenture holders also by a very
largo majority have accepted the
scheme, and all the preliminaries of
reconstruction have, ns for as the
Board huve been able to curry them,
received attention. It only remains
for me now to formally move the confirmation of the resolution which has
been read by the secretary. I beg,
therefore, to move that the resolutions
passed at the former meeting be confirmed,
Mr. O. Freeman seconded the resolution.
Mr. Lazarus: Do I understand that
this Is all carried and that no voice
can now upset it'.1
The Chairman: The motion bus not
yet been put to tbe shareholders, and
you will have an opportunity of speaking to the resolution if you wish to do
so. We shall lie very pleased to hear
you.
Mr. Lazarus; I object, and that is
tbe reason for asking the question.
Mr. T. (libbs: 1 have this morning
received a letter from Cork from
shareholders representing a considerable amount of money in this ���Company, and tbey ask me to put their
views forward ��jt this meeting. One
of these gentlemen is Mr. Hay, B late
director. What they want is that the
liquidation of the Company, Instead
of hetng a voluntary liquidation,
should be through the Court.
Mr. Lazarus: I also propose that
the Company should be wound up by
the Otticinl Liquidator,
Mr. (llbbs: I will move that the
winding-up be through the Court
Ipstcttfi of a voluntary winding-up.
The Chairman i That is out of order.
Mr. Gibbsi Cannot I pqt myself In
order ? Ido not know bow. My in
siriictiniis five to put the matter tn the
vote.   I Want to move that the wind-
M''..(libbs: Cannot I got in order?
The Solicitor: No doubt you can.
The position is this: There is a resolution for voluntary liquidation, which
has already been passed, and which has
now to be continued. Now you want
to bring forwnid something which is a
variation of the scheme. You cannot
do it. There bus been no notice given
ol that, and all you can now do is to
move a simple negative.
Mr, GihlisiTlicu 1 move the negative.
Mr, Lazarus: I second Unit. We
ought to have an Official Liquidator.
Unless we do that we shall get no satisfaction. ,      -.        , ,*
Mr. .Towc! I: I have listened to this
discussion and am somewhat surprised
at Ibis being sprtii g upon us at this
stage. It seems to me it is too lute.
We have now to vole either for or
ug.iinst the scbenie. ] heird one gentleman say be knew a great deal about
this company, So do I. I have knoivn
the mine lor the past eleven years. 1'
live in British Columbia, and 1 am sat-
islied not only that we have a good
property but that wo shall all make
money out of it yet,
The Chairman theft put the resolutions, which were unanimously carried.
Some discussion afterwards took place
as to the payment of out of pocket expenses and au honorarium to the
committee, but while most of the
shareholders were in favor of paying
certain expenses incurred liy the committee no decision was arrived at.
The proceedings then terminated.
CHAPLEAU MINE.
Final Payment on That Mine Will Be
Made Tomorrow.
Mr. J, Mullinson Williams returned
ycFterdny from Sloonu City, where he
lias established a branch office iu charge
of Mr. O. S. Browning.
Mr. Williams has received a oable
from liis directors in Paris saying that
the final irs'nllmeut of (10,600, due on
the Chapleau mines, will be nt his dis
pusal tomorrow nt the Bank of Montreal

NO RIGHT TO UGLINESS.
The woman who is lovely in fiice,

friends, but one who would be attractive must keep her health. If she is
weak, sickly and all run down, she
will be nervous and iriltable. If she
has constipation or kidney trouble, her
impure blood will cause pimples,
blotches, skin eruptions arid ii wretched complexion. Electric Bitters is the
best medicine in the world to regulate
stomnch, liver and kidneys .'and to
purify the blood. It gives strong
nerves, bright eyes, smooth, velvety

One Night Only!
MAY 30TH.
The time hns arrived when all parties
nre fully alive to the fnot that the future
welfare of   onr Provinoe   demands  a
sound, fair and honest business administration  nud  that  any   great
Party   must    appeal    to
higher considerations than those of in
dividual fear of loss, or hope of gain.
I consider it the duty of every member
elected, to be n l'rovineiiilist to the extent of the beat iutereats of the Proviuce
first, lost nod alwoys, nud to Bupport nil
good leKiBhition with that object in view
Iu asking you for your support, I will
state that I am opposed to hasty legislation ot any kiud, hut particularly with
respeot to our Mining Laws, as tending
to jeopardise business iuterestB nud to divert cnpital: for instance, twice the Legislature hns passed Alien Exclusion
Laws nud they are now for the Beooud
time seeking to repenl them after having
done ooisiderable mischief .and damage.
With regard to the Eight-Hour Lnw, 1
nin opposed to nuy change in the law
as it nowstnuds. Shorter hours for nil
classes of labor is no new idee, hut iu
ray[opit|ion the principle should be such
ns to nppenl to nil Sections of the Community as being not only n ueoeesily nud
beneficial to all, but iu keeping with the
general udvauce r_eut of our civilization.
I would advocate the amendment nnd
strict enforcement of the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, bo as to more effectually proteot the lives of workmen.
With regard to the Mineral Aot: I
would eudeavor to hsve certuiu sections
more clenrly defined, for the purpose of
nvoiding litigntiou ; nud with regard to
oo-owuership, to iutrodnce an inexpensive nud speedy mode cf making a oo-
owner bear his share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I urn iu favor of un amendment to our
School Laws so ns to give Cities the control of the Schools iu their midst.
A fair Redistribution Act should be
passed as soou ns possible.
I would advocate the bringing into
foroe of the Torren's Aot, provided it is
made optional , as the cost iu a great
many esses will he excessive and out of
nil proportion to miy benefit to be derived,
I would urge the speedy construction
of ii Court House in Nelson, equal to
the requirements of this distriot,
I would strongly advocate increased
(irnuls for Roads, Trails ond Bridges
wherever such will upbuild aud develope
oar Proviuce, more especially in the
Mining llistricls, nud all Biiob expenditure to be placed in capable and ex
perienced bauds to be dealt with in a
systcmntic wny.
Our undeveloped nnturnl resources
should receive more attention, and be
more widely advertised in order to attract
cnpital,
With regard to oheap foreign labor I
lielieve, where the remedy is nn Imperial
matter, in view ol I he stand our Province
nudCoiinlry has taken iu the present war
giving both live- and money, the desired
end enn be gained if properly sought,
Without bringing ubout n serious misun-
derstnuding with the Dominion Government 'id entailing deplorable agitation
as we require pence aud prosperity in our
midst,
I am opposed to any clique or faction
of politicnl ngitators whose principle aim
is to embarrass and retnrd the business
of the Proviuce for pnrely personal ad
vanccment.
I strongly condemn the actions of the
Ilieni. (invi'i ten ns being nu invasion of
