Nelson, British Columbia, Tuesday, April 24,  1900.
Tenth Year
CAMPAIGN
It Is Opened In  Nelson
the   Hon.    Joseph
Martin.
by
Addresses Electors  of This
City In  the Opera
House.
The Speech Was a   Tame
One and Enthusiasm
Lacking.
Hon. Joseph Martin, Premier of tie
Province of BritiBh Colombia, spoke
to n paokeil honse last night. Even
before bis arrival every sent in the
Opera House was taken anil the rear of
tlio parquet floor offered no further
standing room aooominodatiou. The
anditinoe was an orderly ono and the
Premier was given a very good hearing. There were bnt few iutoruptions
and nouo of these weie of an objectionable nature.
Of the speeoh itself, even Mr. Martin's strongest supporters must admit
I tint it waB weak. He started nil' well
enough and the elaborare ruilroad policy whuli he proposed to inaugurate
oaught tbe audience. The niaunor in
whicb lie pronoeed to keep tbe ooffers
at Victoria filled, ho that�� trail, n
road or a bridge conld be built at a
moment's notice, at first thonght appealed to bis anditurs and he was progressing favorably. Bnt vhen be
claimed for himself all tbe good thai
hnd ever been done by any government
of wbich he had been a member, a
very andiblo smile passed over the audience,
"When I havo been a member of a
Government," deolared Mr. Martin,
"tbnt Government has constantly
grown Btrouger. Every day has ndded
to its strength. Bnt when I left it, it
has fallen to deoay, growing gradually
weaker and weaker and weaker nntil
it has collapsed. As a member of the
Souilin Government I saw that Government gradually increase in strength.
When I left it its strength left it nnd
it was defeated. With the Greenway
Government in Manitoba it was the
same. The bnttles fougbt by that
Government nfter I had resigned wero
fougbt uud won three times on legislation cin-etcil at my instance. When
this could no longer be done the
Greenway Government no longer retained the confidence of tho people of
Manitoba and defeat resulted."
This was a little strong for tbo audi-
enoe and it did not take well, and
whatever may hnve been the effeot ol
Martin's   previous   remarks.
Mr.
wiped out by these statements.
Mr. Martin's appeal throughont was
to the laboring man and to the Liber
ills. Hn was rnnning as a Liberal ou
party lines and as a striot advocate of
the eight-shout law. He did not wunt
those who agreed with his platform to
vote for an independent candidate, bnt
wanted thern to voto for a candidate
pledged to suport him and his plat
form. In this it was obviouu that he
was driving at Mr. Houston. He bad
already referred to Mr. Houston and
tbat gentleman's railroad policy, and
had intimated that he mnst havo been
seen by Mr. Ontton.
">ou don't want to sond to Victoria
an Independent enndidae," Im said.
"If you believe in my platform I will
expeot you tr cast your vnti a for a
man pledged to support nie. You ore
not doing your duty if you send thero
a man who mny do as he likes when he
gels there. It is your dnty to demand
a declaration of the principles nf yonr
candidates here. A candidate should
be ohosen beoause yon approve his
stand upon public questions. I hope
tbat you will insist that nny opposing
candidate shall show you just where
he stands."
Mr. Martin does not want to retain
power except throngh n majority elected upon his platform. He duos not
want his majority to oome from Independent candidates.
"If on June II," ho deolared, "the
election returns do not show that a
majority of the ridings havo elected
men pledged to the hilt to this Government I will iu a few dnys afterwards send in my resignations to the
Lieutenant-Governor. I expert that
overy important riding will 1 ave b
candidate pledged to snnport my platform. K after the election a majority
Ot the membJiB olected hnve been
elected upon m> plntform, and they
desire to choose another leader rather
than me, I Bbnll most happily withdraw and serve iho Government to the
best of my ability in whatevtr capacity it may see fit."
Mr. Martin bogan bis address with
an explanation of bis notion in assisting in the defeat of the Semliu Government. He wai introduced by
Uarlen Hillyer,   who  waa   Mr. Mar
tin's snle companion on the stage,
with the exception nf Ibe press retire-
sentntives. Mr. Hillyer asked for Mr.
Martin a fair heating, whioh was due,
he said, to (he Premier of the Province.
Mr. Martin wan recelvod with applause as he stepped to the front of the
plntform nnd expressed his plensuro ut
tho opportunity afforded him of addressing n Nelson nudienoe. He then
begnn his explanation of the oircuw-
stnuees which led to his dismissal
from the Horn I in Government. He hnd
differed with Mr. Cotton, he mud, iu
regard lo Ludgate's mill in Dead-
man'a Island. :He had favored the
proposition to build a mill on tbe
island and Cotton opposed it. He had
offered, he said, to onrry tbe matter
iuto a eaiicim of the Government party
but this Mr. Cotton would not agree
to. Then on July 1 he was asked by
Mr. Semliu for his resignation. This
wns the first hint, he said, tbat be had
receivod thnt Semliu was dissatisfied
wilh him. ' He hnd naked Mr. Somlin
for his reasons for asking for his res-
ignntion and Mr. Semlin had given
him three reasons. Tbey were flimsy
and ridionloos nnd herefuicd to tender
his resignation nntil he had carried it
into oanous. This was agreed to and
in the emeus a majority had gone
agninst him. He had announced then
that he wonld join the opposition and
he hnd done so. Mr. Martin then told
of the efforts of Mr. Semlin to get him
iuto bis Cnbinet and of his acoeptanoe
after pressure hnd been brought to bear
upon him by his friends.
The Dominion Government's di��-
nllnwnnoe of the Alien Labor Aot wae
referred to by Mr. Martin at some
leugth, and he gave it as hia opinion
thnc tbe real reason for his dismissal
from tho Semlin Cabinet was his stand
upon this question. He believed in
tlgting tbe Dominion Government
every inch of the way on this proposition, and promised to do it ff the
peoplo would stand behind him at the
polls on June II next. In this conneo-
tion he read his now famous letter
from Sir Wilfrid Laurier, tn wbioh
that gentleman politely informed him
that he could not aid bim in any way
in his enmpaign, aud ^intimated thnt
further njtrepondence between the
Premier of thn Dominion and the Premier of British Columbia would not
result in tbe least degree ot benefit to
he latter gentleman. Bnt Mr. Martin
read the letter, aa has done several
limes at other meetings, and attempted by the emphasis planed npon certain sections of it to make it appear an
in endorsuient of him and bia policy.
The letter has already beeu published
in The Miner with editorial comment.
Mr. Martin then turned his attention briefly to Mr. Houston :
"I rather suspeot our friend Houston
lias a friendly feeling townrd Cotton,"
Mr. Martin said. "It ia pretty hard,
though, to judge from hia oard announcing himself a candidate, where
he stands."
Mr. Martin then read Mr. Houston's
announcement and followed with reading bu editorial from the Tribune
criticising Martin's railroad polioy,
ind advocating the building of roads
in portions o* tbe Province where there
are no roads at tbe present time. The
Premier then outlined bis railroad
policy. His strong oard was a road
from Vancouver to Midway, for the
-���oust met ion i if which ho v. ns tu borrow $10,000,000. He told in glowing
terms of the benefits whioh were to
aoerne to the Kootenays through the
construction of the load. He had it
on good information, be said, that
there wonld be little trouble in finding
i pass through the Hope Mountains,
whioh the C. P. R., he said, had declared impassable.
He referred briefly to the oight hour
law and deolared himself heartily in
favor of it, and took upon himself all
the responsibility for its passage. Mr.
Martin the read the balance of bia
platform, eniuinentiiigiii it as he read.
It was after 10 o'clock when he concluded. Before the andieuoe had left
the honse an enthnaistino Martin man
in tho gallery oalled for three oheers
for the Premier. Tbis was a mistake,
as the cheers were of a very frosty
variety.
"I guess they must be tired," said
Mr. Murtin, ns he walked to the wing
of the stage.
WEPENER
Roberts Sends   Pole-Garew
and French to Help
Rundle.
The    Boers   Defeated   and
Driven Out of Leeuw
Kop.
Strathcona's Horse are Now
Getting their Baptism
of Fire.
(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London. April 28.���The War Office
late this evening put tbe following
despatch from Lord Roberts on the
bulletin board, dated Bloemfontein,
Monday, Apiil 28:
"Yesterday I despatched tbe Eleventh Division nnder General Fole-
Carew and two brigades of cavalry nnder General Frenob, from this point
to assist General Rundle. The foroe
reached Karriefontein without much
opposition. The casnalties reported
are: Welah regiment, private killed,
Capt Prnther, mortally wounded, and
seven men wonnded ; Yorkshire, eight
wonnded; Eighth Hussars, one killed,
one wounded ; Fourteenth Hussars, one
wonnded; Royal Arlllery, two wonnded ; Seventh Dragoons, Lieutenant
Jenkins and ten missing. Onpt. Rot-
son, Royal Artillery, broke his arm by
a fall. General Pole-Carew'a Mounted
Infantry seized Lhiuw Kop, a high
bill a few mile? north of tbeir fortnight's position. The enemy evaonat-
ed hurriedly, leaving some rifles and
ammunition. General Rundle reported
tbat 26 men of tbe First Worceaters are
missing. Fifty-three men were aent
with wood to an ontpost alter dark,
only 18 returned. Tbeii nnmber nnd
names will be reported afterwards as
well as tbe wonnded of yesterday."
London, April 24.-5 a. m.���The
strong body of reinforcements whiob
Lord Roberts sent to assist the relief
of Wepener and to endeavor to envelop
and out off tbe Boera from ��� retreat
north, furnishes further evidence tbat
the Boera are assembled in much larger forces mound Wepener than had
been supposed, and a* The Times in an
editorial this morning remarks, whatever may be the difficulties of roads
and rains, tbe Boers always appear to
bave guns and sometimes big ones
wherever tbey want thero.
A Boer dispatoh dated Thaba N'chu
says tbat a fresh snpply of oannon and
ammunition has reached General Dow-
ett and Jnniosbnrg Drift. It also says
that one of Colonel Dalgetty'a guns
has been smashed.
Although tbe Boers appear to be
offering stont resistance to the British
advanoe their position is dangerous.
They can hardly further delay tbeir
retreat north without incurring risk of
being out off. Usually they have been
well Informed regarding British plans
and are not likely to ran muoh risk.   *
MARTIN AT YMIR.
Ymir, April 28.���This afternoon the
Hon. Joseph Martin addressed a large
meeting of Ymir eleotors and delivered a speech upon bis political platform
whicb lasted over two hours, and was
listened tn witb tbe greatest attontlon.
The meeting was held in tbe Miners'
Union Hall nnd wus nttended by a
lnrgo norabor of members of the
Union, wbo reoeived somewhat of a
Betbaok by the evident antagonism existing between Mr. Martin nnd Mr.
Honston. Mr. Martin's announcement
thnt ho would rather see nn out and
out Conservative such ns Mr. Rodoriok
Bobortson elected to thiB constituenoy
thnn a man of no political prinoiple,
suoh as John Honston, oaused no little
oonsteruation in tbe ranks of unionism, and prodnoed rather severer oriti-
oism of Mr. Martin's speeoh than It
would otherwise have met with. The
huu. gentleman laid himself badly
open on one or two oooasions. He remarked thnt the forthcoming eleotlon
wonld bo decided less on the personal
merits of the candidates and more on
tbeir respective platforms thnn at any
previous election, nnd that a man not
a good man, bnt with n good plntform,
wonld hnve more ohance of success
than heretofore. Tbe inference waa
that he based his own obances of success upon this consideration. The announcement of tho philanthropy of his
motives whioh indnned him to enter
politics to his own porsonal detriment
nnd financial loss, waa also accepted
with somo little amnsoraent not over
flattering to the speaker.
in tho operations of General Pole-
Carew nnd Genernl French. Anderson
had undertaken to . drive 'the Boera
from their lino of defence Biinth nf the
waterworks. Tbo Canuoks sustained a
heavy fire. Thn Boers shelled Anderson, who nmilo a march move nround
Leeuw Kop ou the extreme loft of the
Boer positiou. When the British battery opened llro, tho Boers removed
the gnu. Gencrul Diakuus' cavalry
brigade, whioh made n wide detour to
the left, found its further progress
barred by a strong Boer positiou.       g
briefTocals.
London, April 24.���The Daily Telegraph bas tbe following from Boshof,
dated tbe 28rd:
"Tbe Boera are closing on Boshof.
Tbeir nearest laager is now five miles
distant."
The Bloemfontein correspondent uf
The Standard, describing tbe operations at Leeuw Kop, says:
"At an early stage the oavalry oame
under a beavy fl re from a'pom pom'
on a ridge adjoining Leeuw. General
Dickson'* brigade fell baok to await
tbe infantry attack. The flanking
movement having failed, General
Pole Oarew with Stephenson's Brigade, advanced in a orescent formation
from tbe west and southwest witb tbe
objeot of enveloping the kopjes. Unr
men advanced over the open ground in
splendid onnditlon hy a succession of
short rashes, falling prone while pouring in their volleys. The approach of
darkness threatened to leave the Boers
in possession, but just before sunset
tbe Kuh'x Regiment gallantly pressed
forward and drovo the last of tbe enemy from Pnnrils Kraal and the bold
spur of Leeuw Kop.
London, AprM 24.���The Cape Town
correspondent of tbe Daily Mail says
General Harrington's force is tbe only
one going to tbe relief of Mafeking
and that no foroe of any kind ie pointing south. The Morning Post, commenting on the difficulty Lord Roberts
is experiencing, asserts tbat there was
great wisdom ln arranging (or a steady
flow of reinforcements.
Bloemfontein, Arril 23.���Colonel
Anderson's corps of Mounted Infantry,
consisting of the first battalion of the
First and Second Canadian Regiments
and  Htrathoona'a Hone waa engaged

Premier Martin stated most enthusiastically yesterdny morning tbat be
wonld have a candidate in tbe Nelson
Riding. Further than this ho said
that he believed his oandidate wonld
win out at tho polls and that his sue
oeaa everywhere throughout the Province would be tbe biggest surprise bia
opponents had ever experienced. Mr.
Martin did not say who bis :audiote
wonld be. Ho did not say that he
had already been seleoted or that he
bad not been selected. He merely
made the statement that he would
surely have a oandidate. It in believed
tbat Mr. Martin bas his eye upon ox-
Alderman Charles Hillyer. Several
Martin men are said to bave apropnch-
ed Mr. Hillyer in an effort to induce
him to make tbe ruu. Whether or uot
Mr. Hillyer has consented, The Miner
is not informed.
Tbe Nolson Library Association has
decided to move tbe library and reading rooms from the qnartera they now
occupy in tbe Broken Hill Block. The
new rooms'will be located in the row
of offices owned by Harold Selons,
situated at the corner of Viotoria and
Stanley Streets. Thoy will ocoupy
three of the offices and it ia understood
that they will be tilted up with new
paper, etc, and communicating doorways cot between tbe buildings. Tbe
library will also have a private door,
so tbat subscribers desiring to get
books will not hnve to enter the library by the reading rooms, as is done at
present. Tbe ladies who use tbe library
will particularly apprecite this obaoge.
In tbe new locution there will he
muoh more room than there is at pres,
ent and in addition there will be no
steps to olimb. Mr. Harrison, tbe
curator of the library, reports an exceptional attendance in tbe reading
and reoeption rooms during the last
two months. When the reprsreiitative
of The Miner entered tho reading
rooms yesterday tboso rooms and the
recreation room were well filled by
men who wore evidently deriving
muoh pleasure from the advantago
offered them by the association. The
work of the association is lndoed
most worthy one and needs only to be
seen to be appreciated. In the library
tbere are now about six hundred hooks
exolnsive of paper ooverod novels,
About one hundred and fifty subsorib
ers bave their names on the bonks, nnd
new names nre being added dnily.
Tbe library is only opon to suboriliers
and contains a well ohosen assortment
of the latest books.

VOTERS'   LISTS.
A pnblio interpreter of onr Provincial
statutes would seem to bo one of tbe
greatest of presont necessities. Wo nre
having a general revision of the voters'
liata. Two months ago Mr. Martin ile-
oided tbat new lists should be compiled
before he could think of going to the
oonntry. The noxt revision will be
on tbe 7th of May. In tbo meantime
those qnaliiied to vote conld make application to ho registered, and the revising officer wonld li.-ten to appeals
on tbe date named. In Nelson tbe
lists closed on Saturday last, the ,31st.
That gives an interval of two weeks,
wbioh is the time supposed to be required iih notice of appeals. Bnt the
Government official in Nelson wbo has
to do witb the compilation of tbe lint
maintaius that thirty days' notice is
necessary. He reads the lnw as demanding thnt appeals be filed not less
than thirty days prior to the date of
the Conrt of Revision. If this is the
proper interpretation of tbe law, tbe
hundreds of names registered last week
will stand as those of qualified voters,
although every one of them may be
fraudulent. There can be no appeal
against any name to which objection
was not tnken on or before tbe 7th
inst. That is one interpretation of tbe
law.
IiiHtead of closing for revision on the
7th, the list in Nelsou wsa held open
nntil the 21st. Un Saturday it was
given to be understood tbat further
registration would be useless for the
purpose of the next revision. In Tbe
Vancouver World of Friday, the
20th, a spirited appeal is made, not
only to tho electors of tbat city, bnt to
those of tbe entire Provinoe, to see
that their names wero placed on tbe
lists, warning them tbnt "but a fow
day* remained in wbich tin* could be
done." If the law is general in its
application, and registrations closed
on the 21st in Nelson, we oannot understand why The World should excite
itself in nn endeavor to have names
registered after that date. If the lists
oloaed for revision on tlm 21st in Vim
couver, it would not have said on the
20th that a "few day* yet remained,"
nor wonld it hnve included tbe Province in it* appeal, for in the one day from
the -J( Hi to the 21st it could not hope
to cover more than a small portion of
il. Yet it urges on tho negligent
everywhere tho duty of registering,
and it doe* tbis in tbe name and in
behalf of the "Government Central
Committee," whose address it gives.
In Vanoonver, therefore, by a Committee inspired by the Government, it
was oonsidered highly dosirahle to
continue registration after tho 21 st.
Something has been hoard of the
large number of appeals (lied in the
Slocan distriot. The registration
offioial was appalled by it, and wrote
off to tbo Atti.rin-y���(1 ineral to ascertain what hn should do iu tho matter.
In his reply Mr. Martin did not say
tbat tbe appeals could not be heard ;
he merely intimated thnt those appealed against were not hound to appear in
peron at tbe Court, and tbat the onns
of proof of fraudulent or improper registration rested with the appellants.
That waa all. Whether ihose nppenls
were filed on or before the 7th inst.
does not appear; but they am to be
heard, and the evidence is expeoted to
deolde whether tbe names are to be retained. Bnt if on tho 7th, it will be
interesting to know what is to become
of tbe registrations made subsequent
to tbat date. Do tbe names go on the
Hit, right or wrong'/
Tbere are two remarks snggested by
the forogoing: one, tbat the lnw is of a
peonliar sort, and appears to ho inviting fraudulent prnotices of a startling
character; tho other that Mr. Martin
is the author of it.
Yeiterday Mr. Honston formally announced himself ns a oandidate for
election to tbe Provincial Legislature.
Yesterday Mr, Mnrtin insured a friend
that there Would be a Government
candidate to oontost the Nelson Riding. It is Baid tbnt ordeis havo been
issued from headquarters in Montana
that all Miners' Unions should support tho Martin Government. If obeyed, it will ho had for Mr. Houston, foi
without the miiieis he Iuim uo support
worth the name. It is not iniproba
ble, however, thai Mr. Martin's threat
to put up^a candidate may bring Mr.
Houston to his knees, notwithstanding
the nniionnoeraeul of bis anndidatore
followed closely on Mr. Cotton's visit
to Nelson. Mr. Houston will dance to
auy piping thnt promises to gratify
his ambition. Ho will follow Mr.
Mnrtin, or Mr. Cotton, or Mr. Anybody, so long sb it leads him to tbe
Legislature. Ho would sacrifice the
miners without a tremor; he would
abandon auy principle he ever professed, if only tho elootors Nelson Riding would give him a majority.
Another minor of thoso days of political cM'ticincui and surprises is that
Mr. Martin will seek a seat in Viotoria. We are indebted to some friend
of Mr. Martin's for a campaign document, in whioh is incorporated his address to the electors of Vancouver.
He tells tbem tbnt he is again a can
didnte for thoir favor, which ought to
dispose of the roport that he intends to
stand for Victoria. It is worthy of
remark thnt in this douoraent are included the Lieutennnt-Govornor's let-
tor to Mr. Semlin, when dismissing
that gentlemnu as his adviser, and
his letter in reply to the memorial of
tbe business men of Viotoria. It is the
first time in the history of Cnnodn tbat
a Lieutenant-Governor has permitted
himself to be dragged in'o an election
contest, and it can only be taken to
mean that in his own estimation he is
as munb on trial before ibe oonntry as
Mr. Martin. He roust be gratified at
tbe happy coincidence that the country
is very muoh of tbe same opinion.
The Miner is indebted to Mr. Smith
Cnrtia for an American bcoklet on
"National Ownership of Railways,"
of whiob tbe Rev. Charles H. Vail is
tbe author. We do not know anything
about Mi. Vail, bnt are fairly familiar
with the arguments employed in his
book. One of tbe strong reasons given
in support of national ownership is
the corruption in politic*; tbe corporations can wheedle tbe politician* into
doing anything. Wa are sure, however,
that Mr. Smith Curtis will not admit
thiB. Tbe Government ot wbich be is
a member 18 incorn ptible. Being as
honest as ho will clnim that it ie, it
can safely be left to deal with tbe
companies seeking railway franchises.
If not confident enough of its own
honesty to keep the companies in
check, it can scaroely olaim to be honest enough to be entrusted with the
building of the railways.
For thn third or fourth time it is stated positively that the young Mr. Mclnnes is about to resign his seat in the
Commons and enter Provincial politics. This time it may prove true, as
thore is vory little to resign. It is not
unlikely that Parliament will be dissolved in the course of two or three
months, and in any event the present
is the last session.
