Tenth Year
DUNDEE
Gen. Lord Roberts Has Now
Occupied  That
City.
Boers Make a Final Desperate
Effort at Mafe-
king.
British Army Now Engaged
in   Very  Extensive
Operations.
(nV ASSOCIAT10I) l'HKSS.)
London, May IB,���1 :B0 p, in.���The
War Office has received the following
dispatch from Gen. Buller. dated Dundee, May l.i. 1 p. iu. We have occupied Dundee.   About 'MO of the enemy
left yesterday for (Hellene, where they
entrained. Their wagons also lcfl
yesterday by Dejaggora Drift and the
Dumiabaiisi'i'ltoiul. Their Kaffirs said
they were going to Lolngs Nek, Almost every house in Dundee is completely looted. The navigation colliery is all right, The machinery of
the Dundee collieries is destroyed,
The houses of tile town are damaged
but are structurally inlael.
London, Mny IB.���A dispatch to the
Dally Stall; from Lorenzo Muiqnez.
dated Tuesday, says: "There is now
no doubt that there wns fighting nt
Mafeking Oil Saturday,bill it is believer! to have been in favor of the Harrison. All Ibnl enn be ascertained of a
reliable oharncter follows: "The
Boers, using artillery attacked the
town on Saturday. Very soon the
Kufllr locution wns in flames, ..-omo
say at the result of u fight, others as
the result of treachery. Fighting nt
close quarters became general and iu
the midst of the ennfrsion, tlio Doers
gained possession of the Knflir location.
from whioh point of advantage they
liroii|:ht their guns to hour on the town
at close rnngo.
By an adroit niovo tho gnrripou,
despite its attenuated numlirrs, succeeded in surrounding the party of
liners who had capturod the Knllii
location. Severe lithium followed,
bnt accordini; to the latest reports,
the Boers still hold the location in
whioh they are  piobubly  sutrounded
The truth ii. I believe, thnt the Pretoria authorities, knowing of the progress of the relief column, gnvo orders
to General Snymun to storm the place.
As miiiii as the loaution was in flumes,
Boer bulletins of vintory were flying
about everywhere to encourage the
weak l-ii. .-it burghers.
Boors, who oume down here yesterday from Pretoria, produce for the
edification of incredulous Britishers
two tolegraniB, one of which was signed by Snymun, nnd said " I was lucky
enough to cnpluie linden Powell with
mi'" iMiiuiieil men tins morning."
London, May III -lilll) a. m.���"Fo<
Will last until about .lime III" is I
latest official word from Colonel Bad
Powell, the British   commander   ...
Mafeking, sent lo Lord Roberts uiidei
date of   Msy 7.    Kive dH)s later the
Soars attempted to storm the town and
It is possible thnt they succeeded, although nothing is known of the attack
or of its results except through Pretoria sources, which have no countenance hore. The British relief oolumn
is due there now. Ten days ago General Hiiym.iu was having dilllciilly in
keeping tlie Burghers together Owing
to the approach of the British nud,
when the last Associated Press despatch left Mafeking on May 7, Hie
liners had killed mi the previous thy
one of the Horse Guards and captured

Major F. I). Builty has sent the
Morning Post, this message from
Mafeking May 7: "This morning the
Hours attacked us.   Result us usual.
There is nn uchiug void here.    Pass
the loaf."
The Transvaal Anny hns taken a
position nt Baluawnshdort Pnss, near
Heilbren Bond Station, BO miles north
of Kroonstadt. It's rear guard is still
holding tho hills north of the Vaalach
liver, while the Boer sconts are in
touch with tho British reconnoitering
purtier twenty miles north of Kroonstadt. The Boers have held a council
of war at Dinglay, and the British
spies havo learned thnt tbe Boers de
oitled to hold Harry smith as long as
possible. Lord Roberts infantry are
still nt Kroonstadt. The railway
laborers are at work and engineers
hope to have the line repaired within
three days. The prairie has pat on its
winter onnt. The nights are bitterly
cold but the dnys are hot. The Free
Staters nro surrendering in larger
numbers than after the occupation of
Bloemfouteiu. One officer of the
Transvaal artillery sayB: "There will
be no serious fighting this side of Pretoria as Beringen on the Vaal is indefensible, Heavy guns are being mount
ed at Pretoria, but Generals Botha and
dimmer are agreed that ultimate success is impossible.
It is estimated that the Trnnsvoalers
can still muster ,'10,(100 men iu the
fighting lino. General Buller's advance
as his telegrams indicate, was iu accordance with Lord Roberts' instructions, and it will cease or go forward
ns Lord Huberts may direct. Comment
tutors, afflliattd at the War Office, say
that General Buller's orders to keep
the Boers employed have been supplemented by an order to drive them
completely out of Natal and then to
move on llarrysniith.
General Bundle and General Brabnnt
are taking possession   of wide sections
around Iiadybrant almost with opposition. They find the country still
plentifully supplied with cattle, feed
and Hour. General Bundle is still reducing bis transport aud feeding his
men largely on the country. The
Boers ill that quarter surrender daily
and It the expectation of the correspondents on the sp.it Hint the eastern
Sectlo i of the Free State will soon be
us quiet as the western. General Run-
dle's front is thirty miles long hut
his forces are disposed so that if any
point should be attacked, the troops
there could be quickly reinforced.
OTTAWA
Record of the  Day in the
Dominion Parliament.
London, May l.i.���The Express today
advocates the ostracism of Richard
Oroker In England In retaliation for
Tammany's attitude on the Boer War.
It says: 'it. has not escaped notice In
Ibis country that an American welcome lo the Boer delegates has been
inspired and encouraged by Tammany
Hall, which Is controlled by the notorious boss/. Richard Croker. The records of Tammany are already black
enough without the addition of this
new infamy. But what makes the actions of Tammany particularly Infamous now is the fact that Oroker, who
claims (he hospitality of an English
domicile, professes to be an English
country gentlemen and runs race
horses on thej English Turf is aiding
and encouraging the worst of England's enemies, If OrokerJ finds that
the bracing air of the United States
does not invariably suit Ills constitution he should secure the calm seclusion of au Italian villa within reach of
the Duke of Orleans,  whose company
he will probably find congenial."  ***~
Kroonstadt, May M.���It Is reported
that the whole of the Boer forces   are
concentrating on the Vaal and withdrawing from Biggiirsbcrg and the
southwestern borders.   It is computed
that more than 9000 Free Staters will
fight on the Vaal, Railway communication with this place is expected to
bo open ou Thursday. The transport
is working smoothly,  tbe troops and
horses arc receiving full rations, water
is plentiful and the health of tile
I roups is excellent.

(SPECIALS TO THE MINER.)
Ottawa, Ont., May 1.1.���The supplies
for the House of Commons and the
Senate being about exhausted, Mr.
Fielding presented the Bouse today an
additional amount to meet the necessary expenditures to carry on the
work of legislation.
In reply to Sir Charles Tapper, the
Minister of Finance said that the supplementary for the current year would
be down to in a couple of days aud
others some days later.
This being done,   Sir Louis   Davies
proceeded to   reply   to   Mr.   Borden's
motion to refer the   West   Huron   and
BrocUville election cases to  the   Priv
ileges and Election Committee.
The Minister of Marine and Fisheries said that no one recognized more
than he that it was through the ballot box that staple government was to
be secured and, therefore,that punishment should follow those who interfered with a free expression of the
will of the people in that way. While
this was correct, care should be taken
as to punishment that followed the
mode of proceedure.
In this ease Parliament, in his opinion, had acted hastily in referring the
West Huron election case to the Privilege and Elections Committee. That
committee was not the one to which
ought to be referred a question of
facts. Questions of law might well
be referred to it. It was composed of
the best lawyers in the House. The
British Parliament had withdrawn
from that committee all questions of
fact relating tc contested elections,
because it was felt that partisan feeling would enter into the proceedings
ami overbalance all other considerations.
Sir Louis Davies then referred to
the Queen election case in New Brunswick, when Returning Officer Dun de
olared Balrd elected, although he was
In the minority. In that case Sir John
Thompson laid down a principle that
all questions affecting the Election
Act should be referred to the courts
with one exception, namely; as to the
disqualification of Members of Parliament, Be, Sir Louis, voted against
the motion which Sir John Thompson
then advocated. He said there was a
conspiracy to steal the elections, lie
read an affidavit from Mr. Pritehett,
M. D., In the United States, saying
that he was in the constituencies teaching the deputies how to to substitute
ballots.
Mr. BrittOU, 111 reply, saitl that the
Conservative organizer, Barker. Hamilton, purchased this affidavit. Mr.
Bennett replied that the Senate had
another political tussle today with tlie
Flax Bill and the Liberals came out
victorious.
Victoria, B.C., May 15���The meeting
which wns held in liiilhariiionio Hall
lout night, was not very largely attended but it was nevertheless one of

distinctly pledged themselves in the
event of the defeat of the present Government, to oppose the formation of an

those iu favor of the Introduction of

Tho Jury empannelcd to enquire ia-
tn the death of Joseph Bolduc's child,
who was killed by an electric car in
Hull yesterday, returned n verdict to
the effect that the Hull Electric Bail,
way was criminally responsible for the
death of the child, inasmuch us the car
was not provided with a fender, nnd
owing to the fact that there was only
one cur on the line the motorman was
forced to run hi* car at too great a rate
of speed, in order to comply with the
Company's time table. Moreyer the
car was considered unsafe for use on a
public street when running at a high
rate of speed. The verdict contained a
rider exonerating the inotorinan, N.

TIIK ONE ISSUE.
It is well to have the views of a
candidate on such questions of legislation or administration as are
likely to present themselves, but it
is not always or even often that he
can give effect lo them of his own
will or motion. Without disclosing his mind, however, we should
be asked to vote for a candidate
whom we did not know. Political
addresses, therefore, have come to
be regarded as a necessity. We require to know in advance from our
lepresenlative if he will vote for
compulsory inspection of hencoops,
although it is possible the question
itself may not arise. On the other
hand the candidate may have his
head full of theories, hobbies, and
policies, which ho desires to expose
to the electorate in the full confidence of commanding their admiration. It is proper and customary
to give him the opportunity,
There are candidates and addresses in abundance. And the addresses as a rule take a very wide range.
They embrace all the living subjects
of the day, and many that are so
extremely cmbryotic as scarcely yet
to have assumed shape. Anything
is made to serve that will strike the
fancy and catch a vote. Of the
practical issues, a great deal of ingenuity is employed to present
them in the most attractive light
possible. It can hardly be said that
in the present election there is a
dearth of practical issues. The
Province needs many things, some
of minor and some of very great Importance, before il can be regarded
as properly equipped for the grc.il
work of development in which it is
now engaged.  No one will  feel dis-
mous. Tho factions are at it yet,
and many of us may think that
there is no end to the turmoil. But
the electors are stronger than the
politicians, if they only have the
sense and determination to act.
Should the Martin Government be
sustained this Province would not
know a moment's peace in tbe next
four years. Here in Nelson, however, where there is no Martin candidate, we have not the opportunity
to vote directly for it even if disposed. How much better off would
| the Province be with Houstons
enough in the Legislature to influence tho Government? A riding
can but elect its own member, but
the riding should be careful as to
his character. Do the business men
of Nelson think that it would be a
step towards public tranquility to
elect Mr. John Houston? Would
his election inspire that confidence
which is so necessary to an industrial revival that will set us once
more on the road to prosperity?
A majority ol Dr. Halls would perhaps be satisfactory, but Dr. Hull,
if elected, would find himself alone
and helpless, a man crying in the
wilderness. There is no Independent Liberal party in this campaign,
and it can have nothing to represent in the Legislature. Here is
the vital issue of the election. Before we can expect a flow of capital,
wc must cease this turmoil and regain something like stability in the
conduct of public affairs. Let each
elector for himself debate in his
own mind whether, of the three
candidates, the return of Mr.
Fletcher would not do most to restore confidence and thus bring
about a revival of business activity.
The people in Manitoba and the
Territorities must regret that tbe
Canadian Pacific did not pick up the
stray railways long ago. That corporation has recently taken over the
Manitoba & Northwestern and
the Greal Northwest Central, and
the first thing it did was to reduce
tho passenger tariff from four to
three cents a   mile  over  both lines.
Several months ago a Pretoria
financier said, "When it comes to
the last alternative of war, Kruger
won't climb down, he'll jump
down." It looks as it were about
time the old man was spitting on
bis  hands.

and John Houston all visited Ymir
yesterday. Mr. Fletcher was accompanied by Hugh Cameron and Charles
Hurt, Hi'- Hall was alone and Mr. Houston had Mr. S. S. Taylor to assist him.
Mr. Houston found the situation just
as reported liy Mr. ,1. Fred Hume and
neither he nor Mr. Taylor were able to
improve it. Mr. Fletcher was more
fortunate for his reception wns n most
cordial one and he returned last night
verv well satisfied with the day's
work. Dr. llnll was also cordially received. Each of the candidates spoke
at a meeting calkd at 2 o'clock in the
afternoon and it wns here tlint M
Houston found how far ho Is out of It
so fur as Ymir is concerned. Both he
and Mr. Taylor did their best towards
arousing some enthusiasm but their
efforts were fruitless. The Mayor has
not yet given up hope, however, nnd
remained in Ymir over night anil will
spend another day there. The remainder of the party returned to Nelson last night.

Mr. J. Fred Hume takes exception
to the item in yesterday's Miner telling
of his experiences at Ymir on Monday.
He goes so funis to say that the statements made iu the Miner were untrue.
Mr. Hume's memory must be bad if
lie cannot recall his remarks to several gentlemen, friends of Mr. Houston, at the Hume Hotel on Monday
night.

Mi" H. Mcpherson, Western Manager of the Ontario Powder Co., recently
made a trip to several properties in fhe
vicinity of New Denver and Silverton
and reports splendid showings everywhere. The Bosun has about SO men
employed, the Marlon 12 and the Hart-
ney 15. At the latter property new
camps arc going up and work will be
pushed, Mr. Macpherson also visited
A. J. Mark's California and brought
back with him some ore which runs
runs 1(11) to 1IX) ozs. in silver, aud 70
o/.s in load,
Mr. A. J. Matks is back from his
property, the California, and reports a
most promising outlook. Twelve men
nro now at work nnd this number will
be looreafed in the near future. Mr.
Marks expressed regret that he was not
here to meet Oity Clerk MoGuigan of
Vancouver, who fared so badly at tho
hands of Nelson's Chief Executive. Mr.
Marks and Mr. McGuigan are friends
of several years standing and the hitter,
Mr. Marks says, is ever ready to entertain Nelson gentlemen who visit Vancouver.
The grading of Stanley Street, between .silica and Victoria, is going to
leave the Stanley Street side of the
Phuir Hotel a considerable distance
above the sidewalk. To remedy the
trouble it is proposed to excavate beneath the hotel and add another floor
to the building. In the addition, or
or ground floor as it will be, there
will he the bar room, the billiard
room and the office. Mr. Marpole,
one of the owners, is now incomniun-
niunieiilion with the others interested,
and it may be determined to go ahead
with the improvements in the near
future.
A man at present in Nelson, but
whose home is elsewhere yesterday received a letter from his wife asking
him to send to Eaton's for some goods
which die desired. The husband duly
wrote the letter and enclosed a draft
lor the required amount. On his way
to the post oflice he happened to see in
the window of one of the Baker street
dry goods stores an article which
had been included in bis order. It
struck him flint perhaps he could get
what be wanted in Nelson and he went
into the stoic, When he came out he
be had purchased every article he hud intended to order from Eaton's and had paid less money for the
goods than the amount of the draft
which would have been required to get
them from Toronto. There are some
Nelson people who would do well to re
member Ibis incident when they are in
need of dry goods, etc.
ROBBED THE GRAVE.

To the Electors of the Nelson
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District :
Gbntlkmkn���As the nominee of the
Conservative party X beg to oiler myself
as a onodidato at tbe ooming general
election to represent you in tbe Legislative Assembly of this Province.
The time hrm nrrived when all parties
are fully alive to the fact that tbo future
���welfare of our Province demands a
Bound, fair and honest business administration and that nny great popular
Party must appeal to other and
higher considerations than those of individual fear of loss, or hope of gain.
I oonsider it tbe duty of every member
elected, to be a Provinoialist to the extent of tbe beat interests of the Provinoe
first, last and nlwnys, and to support all
good legislation with that object iu view
In asking you for your support, I will
state that I am opposed to bnsty legislation of nny kind, but particularly with
respect to our Miuiug Lnws, as tending
tojeopardize business interests and to divert capital: for instance, twice tbe Legislature has passed Alieu Exclusion
Laws and Ibey are now for the second
time Beeking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief.and damnge.
With regard to the Eight-Hour Law, I
am opposed to any change in the law
as it now stands.
Shorter hours for all classes of labor
is no new idea, but in my opinion the
principle sbonld be such ns to appeal to
all Seetious of the Community as being
not only a necessity nnd beneficial to nil,
but in keeping with the general advancement of our civilization.
I wonld advocate the amendment nnd
ntriot enforcement of Ihe Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, so as to inure effectually protect tbe liveB of workmen.
With regard to tbe Mineral Act: I
would endeavor to have certain sections
more clearly defined, for tbe purpose of
avoiding litigation ; and with regard lo
oo-ownership, to introduce an inexpensive aud speedy mode cf making a co-
owner benr his share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am iu f nvor of au amendment to our
Kohool Laws so ns to give Cities the control of the .Schools in their midst.
A fair Redistribution Act Should be
passed ns booh ns possible.
I would advocate the bringing into
force of the Torren's Act, provided it ia
made optional ; ns tho cost in n grent
many enses will be excessivo nnd out of
nil proportion to any beueiit to bo derived,
I would urge the speedy construction
of a Court Uouae in Nelson, eqnnl to
the requirements of this district,
I would strongly ndvocnte increased
Orsnts for Honda, Trails nnd Bridget
whorever auch will upbuild nud devulope
onr Province, more ^specially iu the
Mining Districts, nud nil such expenditure to be plnced in cnpnlile and experienced hands to bo deult with iu a
systematic way.
Our undeveloped natural resources
should receive more attention, nnd lie
more widely advertised in order to attract
oapital.
Willi regnrd to cbenp foreign labor I
believe, where the remedy is nn Imperial
matter, in view of the atnnd our Province
aud Country has taken iu tbepresenl war
To the Electors of Nelson
Riding, West Kontenay
District:
Gentlemen. -In response to numerously aigned requisitions asking me te
be a candidate for the Provincial Legislature at the forthcoming eleotion, I
have consented to enter the ooutest as
an Independent Liberal.
I have the honor, therefore to solicit
yonr votes nnd influence, nud if elected I shnll do my utmost to secure for
tho Province honest, economical and
progressive government.
A brief outline of some of the principles which I think should be embodied in the Legislative Aots is given
below.
I have the honor to be gentlemen,
Your obedient servant,
G. A. B. HALL.
1. The prinoiple of eight hours constituting n legal day's work should be
recognized and strictly enforced.
2. Steps should immediately .ho
taken through the proper ohiiunels to
prevent tho immigration into this
country of Chinese and Jnpanese laborers.
3. Two dollars nnd a bnlf per day
should bo tbe minimum wage of unskilled labor throughout tbe Province
on all government works.
4. A fair wage bill should be introduced requiring the pnyment of stand-
aid wnges on all works to which the
Province coutributea subsidies or aid
in any form.
5. The establishment of a labor
I bureau under the direction of n Minister of the Crown, whose dnty it shall
be among other tilings, to collect labor
statistics, and to act ns a mediator
between employers und workmen iu
all oases of actual or threntoned
strikes with power to call nnd examine witnesses and compel disclosure
of all material facts in connection
with such disputes.
(j. I believe that trunK roads should
be liuilt and maintained by tho government and eneonragement given to
miners ,to extend these roads. Such
work should bo directed by competent
government engineers. Where trails
are required to single or small groups
of claims the cost of suoh trnils, if
built by tbe claim owners on the approval nnd under direction of a government inpsector or engineer, shnll
apply as assessment  upon the claims.
T. Government ownership of nil
telegraph systems and railways where
practicable by construction or purchase.
8. Tho establishment of toohnicnl
schools for metnllflerous miners in
connoctiou with smelters at different
points in the Pioviuce.
!). To draw the attention of capital-
ists nnd investors to British Columbia
ns a desirable centre for profitable
mining operations by suitable advertisement and by the appointment of
a special agent at London and else-
whore whose^ services shall bo free and
equally available for all owners of
British Columbia properties.
10. To enoourago the establishment
at suitnble poiuts in British Columbia of
(n)   Steel nnd iron works.
(b)   Shipbuilding yards.
(o)   Additional   smeltors and   refineries.
11. The retaining of tbo resources
of the Province as nn asset for the
benefit of the people, and taking effective meuarei to prevent the alienation
of the public ilmnnm, except to netunl
settlers or for bona fide business or industrial purposes, thus putting nn end
to tbo praetuo of speoulnting iu the
same.
ia. The taking of nctivo measures
for the Hysteinatio exploration of the
Province, including a government survey of the province by sections nnd
giving both lives nnd money, the desired ! the preparation of neenrnte and chenp
end  enn  be gnined if properly Bought, ��� umPH iu accordance with suoh   survey.
without bringing nbout n serious liiimin-
derstanding with the Dominion Govern-
im-iit rind entailing deplorable agitation
ns we requiro peace aud prosperity in our
midst.
I am opposed to any clique or fnclinn
of political agitators whose principal aim
is to embarrass and retard the busincas
of the Province for purely personal advancement.
I strongly condemn tho notions of tbe
Lieut.-Governor ns being nn Invasion  of
the principle of responsible government
18, The iuteraats of the Province
eon he hiiHt served by a permanent
civil service, appointments to which
should be tniide by reason of meiit and
not of politioal influence.
II. All unoccupied lands in the Province should be open to bona fide settlors at lair prices whioh shall bo decided upon by u government bind agent
or valuator, nud belter tncilities should
be given for acquiring small nrens for
establishment of market gnrdons nnd
homesteads.
IS,    Where mineral claims  aro hold
I by joint   owners   and   where   one or
more  of  ninth   owners refuses to oon-
aud a  misuse of  his power  under our | tribute towards tho animal  assessment
work, provision should bn made In the
