Wurreiitown, Thursday, Muy S4.���
Operations have been pushed forward
SO miles. One of General Hunter's
brigades occupied Vryburg last night.
Considering the difficulties of the
road this is a remarkable achievement
for a mixed force, short of ration,
making forced marches with a scarcity
of water. Home portions of the brigade covered 18 miles without a break.
General Hunter personally goes to
Vryburg today by train.

Advices from Mafeking, dated May

CHILDREN'S  SPORTS.

Nelson Children Have a Good Time
Queen's Birthday.
The Children's Sports, gotten up for
the Queen'sBirthday by W. A. (lalliber,
were most successfully carried out
during the afternoon. They took
place on Milieu Street, in front of the
Club Hotel, and Proprietor Cm-run
was Indefatigable in his efforts to
make the atl'air a success. Quite a
large number of people were present
to see the young people contest for
the prizes. Foot races, sack races,
egg races, Jumping contests and other
events look place in the streets, and
the boxing contests, between several
youthful sluggers, were pulled off on
the lnwii'iu the rear of the hotel, The
young people all had a good time and
were wildly enthusiastic in their
praises of the promoters nf the affair.
Many amusing incidents occurred,
In the egg races the contestants were
invariably jumbled together at the
end of tin- nice, sadly to tho detriment
of the eggs and the youngsters' clothing. The gentleman who acted as
goal post also had a rather sticky
time of it. One little girl who won a
ruce circulated proudly among her
admiring friends with a silver coin
clutched In a very dusty eggy hand
and seemed very proud of the trophy
she had won.
When the boxing contests were announced    it    whs   wonderful   what   n
number of small sluggers were discovered. -Tbey were of ull ages, from
five years old to ten or twelve. But
each swelled his chest and strutted
around with his fists clenched looking
for  an opponent,  nnd  Mr,   Galliher
wns surrounded with a crowd of scrappers who "wanted to   fight." Several
inipr ptu   battles  occurred    among
the aspirants before the contestants
were   selected,   one  youngster   doing
his opponent up In the most approved style with a left jab In the eye.
The defeated scrapper was only appeased by the present of  a   smull coin
und the assertion that no real scrapper
ever cried because lie was licked.
The following is a list of the winners of the various events nu the programme :

weeks ngo destroyed Lock 21 in tho
Welloiul Canal were found guilty of the
ohargo preferred iu the indictment aud
Chaucellor Walsh sentenced them to
imprisonment for life. Tho Crown made
out u clear case and by tbe evidence produced it is evident that the dynamiting
is the result of a plot, the purpose of
whioh luii not yet been ascertained.
Tho exclusion of evidence connecting
tho prisoners with Fenianism took
much of the sensation out of the trial
of tbe dynamiters yesterday and today.
When tonight it was learned that all

though none can be found who will

and were sore in their disappointment. Mr. Curtis saw his opportunity, lie promised ;i Kettle River
tramway, and proclaimed ibe principle of Government ownership and
control in order that he might
promise a road from tlm Coast into
the Interior, Mr. Mai-tin was in
desperate political circumstances,
and ready to accept that or anything else that would give him a
colleague with a seal, That is the
entiie explanation of the Government's railway policy, and Mr. Cur-
tis's "theories " have nothing to do
With it. He advocates that policy,
not because he believes in it, but because he thinks it is necessary to
his election, lie knows as well as
any man that the Kctlle River tramway will never be built, and that
Government ownership of railways
in British Columbia is utterly impracticable. But he will piomise
both to gain votes, not because he
is a theorist and socialist, but because he is a tricky politician, anxious that he and Mr. Martin should
wear purple and fine linen and fare
sumptuously every day at the expense of the people of British Columbia.

The Rossland Miner is not disposed to give Mr. Martin credit for
the railway plank of his platform.
It is Strongly inclined to the belief
that Mr. Smith Curtis is the author
of it. Mr. Curtis, it says, is a
theorist, with strong socialistic
leanings, He conceived this policy
of Government ownership of railways in pursuit of the light through
his theories and socialism, and induced Mr. Martin to accept it.
Those who know Mr. Curtis better
than The Rossland Miner dots will
agree with it in ascribing to him
the authorship of the policy, but
will decline to attribute it to his
disinterested devotion to the public
interest.
It is not so long ago that Mr.
Martin was outspoken in his opposition to the principle of Government railways, and there is no
reason to suppose he has since
experienced that change of heart
which results in genuine conversion.
No doubt Mr. Curlis is the person
who suggested that it be adopted
as 11 lending feature of the policy
of the Government) but not because
he was persuaded of the soundness
of it. We can assure the people of
tbe Rossland Riding that Mr.
Smith Curtis is no better than he
ought lo be. lie is very far indeed
from being the honest, guileless
politician he professes to be. When
associated with Mr. Martin's political fortunes in Manitoba, he was as
richly endowed with tricks of all
sorts us the next man, and there, is
nothing in evidence to show that he
bus losl any of them.
Like his political pastor and master, Mr, Martin, Mr. Curtis is ambitious���ambitious of power and
Wealth, When he consented to accept a portfolio in the present Government he was intensely conscious
ol the fact that it would be necessary to provide himself with a seat.
There was only one constituency
in which it was possible to make
Anything like a winning fight, and
that \v;is in Rossland. It was
the only one in which he was
known, and he had to face it.
Hut he knew how uncertain it
Wai| and it was in his great
anxiety lo persuade the people to
accept him that his railway policy
was bom. Out in the Boundary
Country he knew there was considerable feeling on the railway ques-
The New Denver Ledge observes
with great satisfaction that Mr.
John Keen believes in an ellicient
civil service. "He believes," it
says, "that Government officials
should hold ollice just as long as
they perform their work in a satisfactory manner, and should not be
discharged when the Government
parly goes off shift. This is the
policy of tbe greatest good to the
greatest number. Robert Green believes in the greatest good to his
friends. He believes in ousting good
men in order that some Icllow who
voted for him can have a job, no
matter whether the country loses or
not." Mr, John Houston is another Mr. Green. He believes in the
spoils system, having imbibed this
and the primaries with other Americanisms during his sojourn across
the border. British methods are
quite good enough for a majority of
the Nelson people.

The Vancouver Province is quoting Mr. Martin against himself.
Those who have known him intimately for a number of years can
tell how easily this may be done.
Opportunities are strewn as thickly
along his path as flowers on that of
a bride. The Province points out
tbat in 1896 Mr. Mai tin declared to
the Trades and Labor Council of
Winnipeg : "I am not in favor of
the Government owning and operating railways. 1 think this can be
done much better by private individuals, and that any Government
aid should be given as a bonus or a
subsidy." There is no man more
easily understood than Mr. Martin ;
his policy is simplicity itself. He
believes in anything that will for
the moment contribute to his popularity and that he can turn or twist
to his own personal advantage.
The Martin candidate and th
Cotton candidate in the Rcvclstoke
district have both retired, leaving a
clear field for Mr. Taylor, Mr.
Taylor is running as a Conservative, who desires above all things
to give the Province a rest from the
political turmoil of the past two
years. Public sentiment is running
strongly in sympathy with that
wish, and before nomination day-
there will be others of these amorphous candidates seeking seclusion
in retirement. Kvery day it looks
more and more as if tbe faddists,
the demagogues, and the socialists
were on the run.
Mr. Mackintosh in Rossland, Mr.
Taylor in Rcvclstoke, Mr. Keen in
the Slocan, and Mr. Fletcher in
Nelson���here are four seats that
are as safe for honest, stable government as anything in the future
well can be. If all the rest of the
Province will do as well as the
.Southern Interior, British Columbia
will soon rid herself of the gangs of
agitators who have kept her in rather expensive commotion during the
past year.

months ago under sentence of one
year's Imprisonment for theft. The
sentence was imposed by n Magistrate
iu Kossland but after being brought
here he was released on a writ of Habeas Corpus and the sentence was remitted. Since then ho has been living
in Nelson. When the theft was reported to the police, the descriplion
and name of the thief tallied with that
of the prisoner and he was arrested by
Chief Jarvis.	
HIS LIFE WAS SAVED.
Mr. J. E. Lilly, a prominent citizen
of Hannibal, Mo., lately hnd n wonderful deliverance from a frightful death.
In telling of It he says, " I was taken
with Typhoid Fever, thnt ran into
Pneumonia, My lungs became hardened. I was so weak I could not sit
up in bed. Nothing helped me, I
expected soon to die of Consumption,
when I heard of Dr. King's New Discovery. One bottle gave great relief.
I continued to use it, and now am well
and strong. I can't say too much in
its praise. This marvellous medicine
Is the surest and quickest cure in the

Jennlo E. Harris Tells of
Ing Transactions.
Editor of tho Minor.���Will yon kindly nllow me the privilege of ooirooring
n statement made hy tbo editor of tho
Kaalo Kootenaiau, in the laauo of May
iltb regarding the sale of my mining
properties to Ernest Mansfield. In nn
editorial published on the above date,
the Koo'enainu Bays:
"In the current issue of the Mining
Reooid thare ia a photo of Mrs. Harris;
who is desoribed by Knndel H. Kemp
as being probably tbe first woninn in
British Columbia who has miide an
eighth of a million in mines| Mrs.
Harris wishes Bhe had made this
amount." At the time this was pub
lished the editor of the Kootenaiau
wns not acquainted with me, never
having met me, and no person in this
oonntry, with the exception of my
solicitors McAnn ond McKay and the
mannner of the Bunk of British North
America here, know tho terms of ray
sale. It seems to me that a statement
like the above, is trying to throw oold
water on the mining deals of a man
like Eineat Maustinld, who has doue,
and is doing so muoh for thia country
in hia mining investments, and
especinllv for Knslo. Aa Nolaon is Mr.
Mansfield's headquarters I wish to say
that on the 4th dav of Deoomber, 181)11,
I sold to him three different groups of
copper, gold and silver properties in
tho White Grouse district for the sum
of one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars. Tbe terms of tho sale I
did not give to the public; but lean
assure the editor of the Kootenaiau
that I have no fault to find with
Ernest Mansfield in his dealings with
me. In fact I considor him one of the
very best of mining promoters in the
country, and 1 would indeed he very
sorry to make statements such aa wore
attribotod to me by the Kootenaiau.

merit! Mr. Curtis saw his opportunity. He promised a Kettle River
tramway, and proclaimed the principle of Government ownership and
control in order that he might
promise a road from the Coast into
the Interior. Mr. Martin was in
desperate political circumstances,
and ready to accept that or anything else that would give him a
colleague with a seat, That is the
entire explanation of the Government's railway policy, and Mr. Cur-
tis's "theories " have nothing to do
with it. He advocates that policy,
not because he believes in it, but because he thinks it is necessary to
his election, lie knows as well as
any man that the Kettle River tramway will never be built, and that
Government ownership of railways
in British Columbia is utterly impracticable. But be will piomise
both to gain votes, not because he
is a theorist and socialist, but because he is a tricky politician, anxious that he and Mr. Martin should
wear purple and line linen and fare
sumptuously every day at the expense of the people of British Columbia .

SIMPLY EXPLAINED.
The Rossland Miner is not disposed to give Mr. Martin credit for
the railway plank of his platform.
It is strongly inclined to the belief
that Mr, Smith Curtis is the author
of it. Mr. Curtis, it says, is a
theorist, with strong socialistic
leanings. He conceived this policy
of Government ownership of railways in pursuit of the light through
his theories and socialism, and induced Mr. Martin to accept it.
Those who know Mr. Curtis better
than The Rossland Miner does will
agree with it in ascribing to him
the authorship of the policy, but
will decline to attribute it to his
disinterested devotion to the public
interest.
It is not so long ago that Mr,
Martin was outspoken in his opposition to the principle of Government railways, and there is no
reason to suppose he has since
experienced that change of heart
which results in genuine conversion.
No doubt Mr. Curtis is the person
who suggested that it be adopted
as a leading feature of the policy
of the Government, but not because
he was persuaded of the soundness
of it. We can assure the people of
the Kossland Riding that Mr.
Smith Curtis is no better than he
OUghl lo he. He is very far indeed
from being the honest, guileless
politician he professes to be. When
associated with Mr. Martin's political fortunes in Manitoba, he was as
richly endowed with tricks of all
sorts ;is ihe next man, and there is
nothing in evidence to show that he
has lost any of them.
Like his political pastor and mas-
tci, Mr. Martin, Mr. Curtis is ambitious���ambitious of power and
wealth, When he consented to accept a portfolio in the present Government he was intensely conscious
of the fact that it would be necessary to provide himself with a seat.
There was only one constituency
in which it was possible to make
anything like a winning light, and
that was in Rossland. It was
the only one in which he was
known, and he had to face it.
But he knew how uncertain it
WBS| anil it was in his great
anxiety to persuade the people to
accept him that his railway policy
was horn. Out in the Boundary
Countrv he knew there was consid-
The New Denver Ledge observes
with great satisfaction that Mr.
John Keen believes in an efficient
civil service. "He believes," it
says, "that Government officials
should hold office just as long as
they perform their work in a satisfactory manner, and should not be
discharged when the Government
party goes off shift. This is the
policy of the greatest good to the
greatest number, Robert Green believes in the greatest good to his
friends. He believes in ousting good
men in order that some tellow who
voted for him can have a job, no
matter whether the country loses or
not." Mr, John Houston is another Mr. Green, He believes in the
spoils system, having imbibed this
and the primaries with other Americanisms during his sojourn across
the border, British methods are
quite good enough for a majority of
the Nelson people.

The Vancouver Province is quoting Mr. Martin against himself.
Those who have known him intimately for a number of years can
tell how easily this may he clone.
Opportunities are strewn as thickly
along his path as flowers on that of
a bride. The Province points out
that in 1896 Mr. Mat tin declared to
the Trades and Labor Council of
Winnipeg : "I am not in favor of
the Government owning and operating railways. I think this can be
done much better by private individuals, and that any Government
aid should be given as a bonus or a
subsidy." There is no man more
easily understood than Mr. Martin ;
his policy is simplicity itself. He
believes in anything that will for
the moment contribute to his popularity and that he can turn or twist
to his own personal advantage.

WHOLESALE AND RETAIL
The Martin candidate and the
Cotton candidate in the Revelstoke
district have both retired, leaving a
clear field for Mr. Taylor, Mr.
Taylor is running as a Conservative, who desires above all tilings
to give the Province a rest from tbe
political turmoil of ihe past two
years. Public sentiment is running
strongly in sympathy with that
wish, and before nomination day
there will be others of these amorphous candidates seeking seclusion
in retirement. Kvery day it looks
more and more as if the faddists,
the demagogues) and the socialists
were on the run.
Mr. Mackintosh in Rossland, Mr.
Taylor iu Revelstoke, Mr. Keen in
the Slocan, and Mr. Fletcher in
Nelscn���here are four seats that
are as safe for honest, stable government as anything in the future
well can be. If all the rest of the
Province will do as well as the
Southern Interior, British Columbia
will soon rid herself of the gang! of
igitators who have kept her in rath
er expensive commotion during the
erablc feeling on the railway cmes- past year.

Min-
Mrs. Jennie E. Harris Tolls of
Ing Transactions.
Editor of the Minor.���Will you kindly allow me the privilege of coireoting
a statement made by the editor nf the
Kaslo Kootenaiau, iu the issue of May
Dth regarding the sale of my mining
properties to Ernest Mansfield. In nn
editorial published on tho above date,
the Kootenainu Rays:
"In tbe onrront issuo of the Mining
Itei'oid tbsre is a photo of Mrs. Harris;
who is described by Rondel H. Kemp
as being probably tbe first woman in
British Columbia who has made an
eighth of a million in mines; Mrs.
Hnrris wishes she had made this
amount." At tho time this was pub
lished the editor of the Kootenaiau
was not acquainted with me, never
having met me, and no person in this
oonntry, with the exception of my
solioitors McAnn and McKay aud the
manager of the Bank of British North
America here, know the terms of my
sale. It seems to me that a statement
like the above, ib trying to throw cold
water on tbe mining deals of a man
like Ernest Mnustinld, who has done,
nud is doing so much for this oonntry
in his mining investments, and
especially for Kaslo. As Nelson is Mr.
ManBtield's headquarters I wish to iay
that on the 4th duv of Deoomber, 180!),
I Bold to him three different groups of
copper, gold and silver properties In
the White Grouse district for Ihe sum
of one hundred and twenty-live thousand dollars. Tbe terms of tbo sale I
did not give to tho pnlilio ; hut I can
assure the editor of the Kooteunian
thnt I have no fault to find with
Ernest Mansfield iu his donlingR with
mo. In faot I considor him one of tho
very best of mining promoters in the
country, and 1 would indeed be very
sorry to make statements such na wore
attributed to mo by the Kootenainu.

THE LEONARD CLEANABLE
REFRIGERATOR
To the progressive nnd enrefnl housewife the preservation of food
is a very important umtter indeed. Tbe senson et refrigerators is
here and we have n bin line of them to ohoosefrom, in all the practical family sizes, We cbii safely recommend "The Leonard" Olean-
nble as a perfect refri��;eruto>. It is generally understood that next
to economy of ire, the most important requisite of a refrigerator is
thnt it should be constructed na to be easily kept clean.
The old style refrigerators are deficient and imperfect in this important fentnre. The Leonard system of refrigeration ia unequalled
and Ihe styles for 1900 hnve nil the np to date improvements. They
are the very best on the market today, and the best is always the
cheapest, especially so iu refrigerators. Come in and look at the
samples.

T. C. DUNCAN Secretary NELSON DAILY MINER. SATURDAY, MAY .6.   1900.
To the Electors of the Nelson
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District :
(ii.NTi.i:\ikn As tbe nominee of the
Conservative party I beg to oiler myself
as a euadidiite nt the ooming general
election to represent yon in the Legislative Assembly of this Province.
The time has arrived when all parties
are fully alive to the fact that the future
welfare of our Province demands a
Bound, tnir nud honest business administration nud thnt nny great popular
Party must appeal to other and
higher considerations than those of individual fenr of loss, or hope of gain,
I oonsider it the duty of every member
elected, to be u 1'roviuciulist to the extent of the best interests of the Proviuce
first, lust nud always, nud to support all
good legislation with that object iu view
Iu asking yon for your support, I will
stnte thnt .1 am opposed to hasty legislation of Bny kind, but particularly with
respect to our Jliuiug Laws, us tending
to jeopnrdize business interests nud to divert capital: for iustauce, twice the Legislature has passed Alien Exclusiou
Laws nnd they are now for the second
time seeking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief !nnd damage.
AVith regard to the Eight-Hour Lnw, I
am opposed to any change iu the law
ns it now Btauds. Shorter hours for all
classes of labor is no new iden, but iu
ray opinion the principle should be such
as to appeal to nil Sections of the Community as being not only a necessity nnd
beneficial to all, but in keeping with the
geuernl advance rnent of our civilization.
I would advocate the amendment nnd
strict enforcement of tho Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, so ns to more effectually protect the lives of workmen.
With regard to the Mineral Act: I
would endeavor to have certain sections
more clearly defined, for the purpose of
avoiding litigation ; nnd with regard to
OJ-owuership, to introduce nn inexpensive aud speedy modecf making u co-
owner bear his share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am iu f uvor of an amendment to our
School Laws so us to give Cities the con
trol ot the Schools iu their midst.
A fair Redistribution Act should be
passed us soon us possible.
I would udvociito tho bringing iuto
force of the Torren's Act, provided it is
madeoptiunul ; as the cost iu a great
many coses will be excessive aud ont of
nil proportion to nny bene.lt to be de
rived,
I would urge the speedy construction
of B Court House iu Nelson, equal to
the requirements of this district,
1 would strongly advocate increased
0 rants for Roads, Trails and Bridges
wherever such will upbuild and dovelope
our Province, more especially in tbe
Mining Districts, nnd all auch expend!
ture to be placed iu cnpnble nnd ex
perienced hands to bo deult with in u
systemutic wny.
Our undeveloped unturnl resources
should receive more attention, und bo
more widely advertised in order to attract
oapital,
Willi regard to cheap foreign labor I
believe, where the remedy is an Imperial
matter.in view of ihe stand our Province
and Oonntry has taken in the present wnr
giving both lives and money, the desired
end can be gained if properly sought,
without bringing about a serious misunderstanding with tbe Dominion Government aud entailing deplorable agitation
us we require peace aud prosperity in our
midst.
1 am Opposed to any clique or faction
of political Bgil :itors whose principle nim
in to embarrass nnd retard the business
of Ihe Province for purely personal ad
Tuuccmeut.
I strongly condemn the notions of tbo
Lieut.-(iovernoi ns being an invasion of
the principle of responsible government
and n misuse of his power under our
Constitution,
Yours respectfully,
FRANK FLETCHER,
