SANDON
Aid
for the  Fire Sufferers
from the Neighboring
Cities.
Nelson Citizens Sent a Large
Contribution Yesterday.
Another Lot of Supplies Will
go There on Monday.
It is wall nigh Impossible for those
wbo have never .....I. irgono a similar
experience to imagine the utter dosolu-
tiou of a onco prosperous city that
has been, in a fow hours, reduced to
smouldering ruins hy snoh n lire us
came to Sandon on Thursday night.
Those wbo have boon spared such
nftliction as has come to the people ol
Sandon can ever he grateful that they
know only hy hearsay what a scone of
dreary desolation now murks the site
of Nelson's neighbor oity. The follow
ing despatch received Inst night hy
The Miner confirms the fear that was
expressed as to the possibility of lives
having been lost:
"Sandon, May 5.���It wns u fiigl.tful
eenne of desolation that this oily presented this morning. "It looks like
null," graphically deolared one vio-
tim, as ho stood looking down from
the monutain upon thu still smoking
reins of Sandon. It was indeed a
scene of misery and desolation, nnd to
make it all tbe worso there is n tragedy connected with the conflagration.
Miles Kamhough lost his life in the
fire. He was a piofessional gambler
and only on Thursday he went np to
Sandon from Knslo. It wns remarked
that he was the merriest and happiest
persou on the train. After having a
convivial glass he went to bed in the
Clifton House and was forgotten until
tbe lire was at its highest, then some
one asked: "Has Miles liainlough
been seen around." No ono had
observed him aud this morning they
took out from the luins his headless
hody, so frightfully burned and disllg
ured tbat it was impossible to identify
the remains. A wi to', found on top of
the body is the only proof that it is
that of the unfortunate Kanibcingh.''
Th�� loss in a few hours or one's
home and, in fuct, one'? worldlyall. is
not a thing to he at, onoe comprehend,
ed. After day broke ot Sandon Friday
morning those whose homes had beeu
burned wero moving around among the
ruins eudoavoring to comprehend their
loss. Tbe prospect was, indeed, a
dreary ono, but after the first hour or
two spent in viewing tho fire-swept
town convinoed them that all was n
total loss, with iudomitahle pluck anc'
euergy they set to work to restore at
least a part of the town. All available
lumber was secured from Kaslo, and
before nightfall some of tbe most ener-
gelio were already at work rebuilding.
Friday night, according to some of
those who went from Kaslo with the
relief committes, presented some piti
ful soenes, and yet, withal, there wns
a wonderful amount of cheerfulness
displayed by all the Sandon people.
Even the children were brave iu their
misfortune and seemed to share the
spirit of "don't give up" displayed by
their elders.
Here and there over the townsite
were fires aronnd whioh were groups
of homeless people spending tho night
in the open air. Under one littlo tree
was a family group that oan ro taken
as a good example of what staff Sandon people are made of. A man, his
wife a.id thioe children were sitting
and lying around a small fire wrapped
iu blankets, two of the children sleep
iug as soundly an though in a nursery.
The father was heating some fond over
tho lire, when ho was appioached by
one of the visitors and nsked to go to
Kaslo on tbo train. At first ho refused,
saying they were al! light for the
night, and in the morning he intended to pnt np a shack with som9 lumber promised from Kaslo.   It was only
after somo time he was porsuadod to
take his family 10 that town.
Every hotel and privato house in
Knslo was thrown open to the homeless peoplo und many of thoni found
shelter there.
Bnt Kaslo was not content with that
for, a half hour after tho news of the
flie was received iu Kaslo, the Mayor
had posters issued oalling for a public
meeting of the citizens and asking for
relief for the fire sufferers of Sandon.
The meeting was oalled at 4 o'olock in
the afternoon, and at 4 :45 a train left
the Kaslo dopot for Sandon with a relief committee aboard who took with
them |1,800 in oash and a quantity of
provisions and clothing. Tho City of
Kaslo gave ��500 aud the bolanoe was a
voluntary conribution hy the citizens.
As soon as tho commi tee arrived at
Sandon they consulted Mayor Pitts
aud other citizens who advised tbem
ns to who wero iu tho most argent
need. The groceries and olothing were
soon disposod of and after (lulling ont
what was roost needed the committee
returned to Kaslo and used the oash
contribution fcr the purchase of more
supplies. These were-sent to Sandon
yesterday morning at 8 o'clock.
The Sandon peoplo woro not slow to
show thoir appreciation of tho kindness of Kaslo, for on Friday nigbt
when the Kaslo relief oommitteo were
getting aboard the train to return to
Kaslo, tho Sandou Baud, who had saved
most of their instruments, gathered
around tho car in whioh waBthe committee and gave nn impromptu concert,
ending np with "God Save the
i,i.ieei.,"n..il three rousing cheers for
Kaslo. Sandon may ho wiped out, but
at all events her pfoplfl bave not lost
any of their pluck that has always
been a charac eristio of the Briton,
come weal or woe.
FOK  S A NOON'S  AID.
and
A Large Contribution of Money
Supplies From Nelsou.
Nelson hns tnken her part in sending
relief to Hnrolon, for when the Steamer
International left her wharf last night
sho had aboard fully a thousand dollars' worth of groceries aud general
supplies lor tho Sandon Are viotiraB.
This was the result of the energetic
work of a relief committee composed
ot Messrs. Ed Ferguson, of H.,f. Evans
a (lo., and 1,. Ernst, of tbu California
Wine Co ; the Bank of B. 0., who
stnited a snbsoriptiou list, and Mrs.
H. J. Evans and Mrs. J. M. Lay, who
collected clothing and dry goods from
various ladies of the City aud several
drygoods firms.
It. is almost impossible to givo a
detailed description of the work done
for this worthy cause nnd, at the snmo
time, to givo credit to whom credit is
duo, for tho work was all done so hastily that The Minor's representative
could not keep track of all of tbe
hustlers.
When Mr. E C. Davison, of the
iJalifnrnia Wine Oc., who was in Sandon. Friday night, arrived in Nelson
yesterday morning ho at once set to
work to suggest to everyone he met
tho advisuhility of doing something
for Snndoii nnd doing it speedily. It
wns but a Hhort time later that Messrs.
Ernst and Ferguson began their work.
They dropped business and started nn
active and energetic canvass ol the business houseB for contributions of money
or supplies, in fact urging supplies,
for the purpose of sending out a lot of
cuff by last night's boat. They hustled all day, seeiug courihntors, nud
by noon the contributions began flowing into II. J. Evans & Company's
store, which wns mado a "receiving
station." By 5 o'olock they had
secured over SSOO in cash and supplies
of all sorts, and at half fast five the
last case of goods was on its wav to
the steamer The two gentlemen finished the day by sondingg the following telegram to Sandon:
Nolson, May 5, 1900.
Mayor Pitta, Sandon, B. O.: Wo are
sending by the International tonight a
quantity   of   groceries,   clothing, eto,
Un   receipt  of   same wire  ns what is
most required for immediate wants.

content with what they  accomplished

Sims, Clark, Gamble, Russell. They
also reoeived contributions of dry
goods from Messrs. Martin O'Reilly &
Cq., and Kerr & Oo. These goods
wore all sent away on the International last night.
Messrs. P. Hums and Oo. deserve a
great deal of oredit, for since the Hie
they have been furnishing meat to ull
tho sufferers froo of charge. This in
itself will amount to a large donation.
Mr. Hamilton Byers was in Sandon
yesterday and wired Mrs. Byers as foi
lows: "Womeu's and ohildren's olothing badly needed. Ship Monday morning sine." Mrs. Byers is auxious tbat
all persons who havo any such dona-
tons to make will notify bar this
morning by'phone or otherwise. At
all addresses sent to ber a wagon will
call thiB afternoon to collect such contributions, and they will bo forwarded
to Sandou by the 9 o'clock train tomorrow morning. This is au extremely easy method of sending in contributions and all who have any such artioles to spare should hy all menus take
advantage of  Mrs. Byers' offer.
Kaslo has already sont $l,R00 to
Sandon. It now remains for Nelson to
ontdo auy other town in the Kootouay
in aid of thin worthy cause. By Monday night Nelson's contribution should
reaoh $5,000 at all events.
A lurgo box ol eatables left over
from the Library Ball was sent to
Sandon yesterday by the ladies who
were in oharge of that part of tbe
ball.

Byers' geneiosity means that overy
dollar given for a ticket will go di-
reetiy t.. tho relief fund. Arrangements ure being made tn seat a vory
large audience and there shot.hi not be
a vacant seat. The sale of tickets will
be  continued tomorrow.
The excellence of |1k> enterlaiiimeiit

NEWS OF THE WAR.
Londou, May 5.���Lord Roberta io-
ports to tho War OOice nndor date of
Brandfort, May -1, us follows:
"Hamilton arlvauced today to Neal-
wellke. Ho was engaged with the
enemy throughout the march. He
speaks iu terms of praise of the behaviour of the troops, especially Broud-
wood's brigade ol cavalry aud niuniit.
ed iiifuntry."
Londou, May 5. ���Lord Roboits is
evidently losing no time in following
np the substantial advantage gained
by the occupation of Brandfort, aud
his whole force apparently moving on
Winberg. The tilaco mentioned in
Lord Robert's despatches to the Wnr
Office thi.i morning us "Neal Welkot'
cannot be found on the maps, und ir is
likely that it is u eahle error for near
Vet Knnp, in whioh case Gen. Ian
Hamilton seems In be midway between
Ilontnek mid Wiudl.crg, and hns thus
got between Winburg and Gen. Oliver's oommand from Wepener, which
is occupying Thana Patch..a, between
Thaba N'chu, Ladybrant and Win
lung. The com.lty is rough nnd suited
for tha liner tactics, so the British arc
.liable tn be considerably barroised be
for. they capture the stronghold. Experts dill'ei as in whether Lord Roberts
is bound towards Krooustadt 01 Bethlehem. The latter place is the terminus of the 1 itit) joining with the national railway, nnd the enptnre ot that
place would probably ootnpT"! the Boers
to leuvn the 1 irackicburg range and
thus open the way for Gen, Bullet's
advance. Tho British have to repair
the bridge over the veldt before thf
railroad between Brandfort and Winburg is available.
PINAFORE TOMORROW.
There Will Be a Crowdod House in
Aid of Sandon.    -
Tho sale of tickets yesterday for the
performance of Pinafore to be givon in
the Opera Honse tomorrow evening in
aid of the Sandou Relief Fnnd was a
surprise to those who are managing
the production, as the peoplo almost
fell over one another in their anxiety
to obtain tiokets and contribute their
dollars to suoh a.worthy fund. Yesterday's sale uotted some hundreds of
dollars, and that the Opera House
will be crowded is now assured. The
plan of Beats will he opened in the
Opera House store at 10 o'clock slarp
tomorrow morning and there is sure to
he a big rush for seats.
There was a full rehearsal of the
principals and chorus last night and it
is confidently expeoted that tomorrow's production will be tbo best given by the amateurs. Herr Steiner
work baid with those taking part and
will give a performance worthy of
him.
Melville Parry yosterday was very
pleased and surprised to receive a tMe-
gram from Hamilton Byers,*wlo was
at. Kmil". stating tbat be would subscribe $200 towards tbe product ion of
Pinafore, As the expenson will be
considerably below $10 thero will be a
j large balance of Mr. Byers' handsome
London, May 5.��� Among the many
interstiug topics brought before tho
English public within thu last few
days, Lord Roberts' ndvaneu on Pretoria is pro-jtninoul. The inception of
his wearily awaited movement lias
thrown open to the papeis and people,
the sluices of freo thought. Hence the
probable duration of the siege c.t Pre-
torin, tbe facilities of the Boers fo
carrying on guerrilla warfare subsequent to being defeated in a decisive
engagement, nnd the possibilities of
retaining the Oolonlalefjand tho reserves
now under anus as settlers in British
Sonth Africa, are now matters under
nonsideruton.

That the Conservatives of the Prov-

well attested to in the nnmber of candidates they already havo in the

under which the Conservative party
is acting in thus entering the Held in

Jack Gibson is very much put ont
hucauso The Miner litis rofeirod to him
as at one timo hnviug been a power iu
the Libera) ranks in Nelson. Because
be bus lost that power is certainly no
disgrace to him, and tho fact that be
was at. one time powerful is a tribute
to his abilities as a politioal geueral.
James Wilkes.of Labor fame,dropped
politics for several hours yeBterday,
aud hn aud his lieutenants hustled on
the snlo o| tickets for tho Sandon
"Pinafore" benefit Mondny night, and
the labor leaders made good ticket
vendors indeod.
It is bjlieved by many that Mayor
Houston bas oome to an agreement
with Joseph Martin to support that
gentleman iii thu House if he (Houston ) is elected and in return for thia
Martin is not to put a candidate in
the Nelson Riding. ThiB is borne out
by the faot that Mr. Houston has been
very quiet iu the columns of hia paper
recently so far as Mr. Martin is concerned. Ho has had very little to say
in regaid to thnt gentleman, and that
little has been the mildest kind of
criticism.. It is bolievod, too, tbat the
visit of Smith Curtis to Nelson during
the coming week bas to do witb Mr.
Houston's change of base.
,   POISONERS AT WORK.
Six Valuable Dogs Killed By Poison
in Nelson YeBterday.
At various times in tbe history of
Nelson some desplicable person or persons left poisoned meat in places where
dogs oould tin.I it, and ns a result several dogs met their death. In nearly
every instance thoroughbred dogs were
tho victims. Again yesterday the work
of the poisoueis was iu evidence and
six dogs were killed and two others
almost so by picking up poisoned eatables 011 tha streot. The owners of
two of these dogs conld not bo ascertained, as they were reported only late
last night, although both deaths occurred iu tbo morning. The next victim
was D. J.Beaton's thoroughbred registered Irish terrier dog - "Roderick
I tn...Ion," which first showed symptoms of poisoning about 10 o'olook and
died ut eleven. A few minutes later
Melville Parry's thoroughbred fox terrier "Scamp" was attacked near Ihe
Phair Hotel and died almost immediately. At noon .1. O. Poiter of the Fire
Department,lost his spaniel dog and at
.; o'olook iu the afternoon Eli Sut-
oliffe's very fine Suffolk spaniel b.t.h
"Nelly" died. She was a beautiful
dog and one of the best of her ollss In
Canada. The doctor worked bard with
her but could not save her. Later in
the afternoon two of "Bill" Herring's
fox terriers, "Nelly" und "Emma"
were attacked, but a great deal oi
timely work hy tbeir experienced owner saved tbeir. lives. They were still
very sick last uight hut will probably
survive.
From the facts that could be gathered it is apparent that prnssio acid was
put on pieces of moat placed in different parts of tbo city so��as to cover a
largo area. There oan be no doubt
tbat it wns the intention of the person
accouutablo in, the doaths to kill as
many dogs as possible and the damage
done was cleary not the result of an
aooldeut or carelessness ln handling
the poison. The polioe have been put
on the oase aud a most diligent effort
will be made to bring the guilty party
to justice. All the dogs killed bad
tags and if the City oharges a tax for
them it must see that thoso paying the
tax have their property proteoted.
Meanwhile all owners of valuable
dogs should keep them carefully chained up and join in a general movement
thnt should result ln the poisoner being put behind the bars.

HOW THEY PLAY THE GAME.
The Knmloops Standard gives editorial utterance to the following: "The
Standard was ablo to announce that
the Premier would run in Viotoria,
two days ahead of any other papor in
the Provinoe. Wo are now in a position to Btate that Sir Wilfrid Laurier
will remove tho Lieutenant-Governor
from his poaition, after the general
election, aud appoint Mr. H. Rostock
in bis plaoe, for which favor Mr.
Bostook will contribute largely t"
party funds. It is also likely, though
not yet definitely settled, that The
Oolnmbinn will pass into Mr. Martin's
hands for 810,000, that Mr. Brown will
take Mr. Ryder's place in the Cabinet,
and that Mr. Kennedy will tako Mr.
Brown's in the Post-Offloe, In this
last, however, thero appears to ba
H.in.u hitch. Mr. Beebe, too, is to be
relegnted to obscurity, to make place
for a stronger man."
The supposed stronger mnn ib Mr.
Mel mils And iii personal comparisi n
with Mr. Beebe he is doubtless a much
abler man, but it is certain that his
aooession to tho Cabinet will weaken
Mr. Martin. Tho people will not
stand so much of the Mclnnes influence. They havo had enough in the
Lieutenant-Governor; to pile on tho
son wonld be overdoing it. It will be
interesting to observe tbe course of the
Liberals in the face of this frtsh development of tbe MnlnnoB interest. It
has long boen known that Mr. Martin
is waiting his opportunity to knife Sir
Wl.frid Lanrier. When tho Federal
Premier'took in Mr. Sifton instead of
Mr. Martin the latter ohalked up a
score which his vindictive nature will
see exacted to the last stiver. The two
MclnneBes aro also disaffected, especially tho yonnger one. His lines nt
Ottawn have not been made as pleasant
for him as ho wished, and he feels today that he owes nothing to tho Laurier Government. The Mclnnes-Mortiii
oonspiraoy had no dV nht fnr its object
tbe capturo of the Government of
British Oolnmbia and tho employment
of all their influence against the Laurier Liberals at tho next Federal election. They are ambitious to display
their power as wreckers.
A few weeks ago Mr. Kennedy, of
The New Westminster Columbian, wus
one of tbe most active nnd earnest in
opposing Mr. Martin. To a large extent it wns due to him that the Van
oouver convention declined to endorse
the Premier. It wns difficult to account for the ohange tbat wan soon np-
parent. If The Standard's tip is the
correct oue���and it has been close to
the mark so far���we see now that the
gentleman bas sold himself for the opportunity to sell his paper and for the
appointment as Postmnster. If there
Is a hitch,ns is most probable, 11 is be-
oauso the Government at Ottawa re-
fnsas to put throngh a party deal for
tbe beuellt of Mr. Martin, and it is
quite on tho cards that Mr. Kennedy
may yet find himself on hifl back. The
people will see from all this whnt a J
wretched game politics is in thie Province. They are beiiw need as instruments of the vengeance of one set and
Of Ibe cupidity of  others.    When the
It has boon a well understood gnine between the pnrties .for
many years back, and ns regularly as
thore havo beeu revisions there wero
appeals. Courts of Revision wore os-
taliluhod for the purpose of insuring
clean lists, and the law, therefore, not
only invitos appeuls but in the interest
of public molality and political purity
demands them. Anyone in the least
familiar with the practice in Buch
cases does not require to be told thnt
appoals ogainiit a voters' list, havo become au established feature of our political system. They uro a legitimate
weapon of pnrtv warfare, and no man
of sense ever thinks of objeoting to
them.
The circumstances attending the
Nolson appeals aro somewhat peonliiir.
Amongst the number are tho names of
many who would be onti led to voto if
they had complied with the law by
making application within proper
timo. This they failed to do, and for
their failure they have only thomselveB
or their agents to blamo. If they had
applied in time their names wonld go
ou the list, and no appeals conld affoct
them. It wus their misfortune that
tbey were included with the names of
a large number of bogus voterB, whom
the tricky Mr. Honston hoped to get iu
as nids to Ih'b election. The fraudulent
names were so numerous that somo
gentlemen in tho City, greatly to their
credit as law-observing oitizens,
thought it expedient in the pnblio interest to make examination and file
appeals. Thero was no intention, we
are sure, to attuok tho name of a single voter that was legally qualified,
and as a matter of fact they did not,
for the qualification was faulty
through neglect to register withiu the
time specified by law. No wrong hnB
heen committorl, therefore, hy or
through the appeals themselves, nnd
the clamor that has been raised in consequence of thorn is simply a manifestation of lawlessness.
It is publicly suggested that the Collector ot Votes will bo iuflnencod to
ovurride tho law and record the names
to which objection hns been made. It
is only necessary to say of this that
the Collector is not nbove the law, and
that it will hurdlv prove either a
profitable or pleasant experiment, to
himself if he endeavors to put himself ahovo it. Tbo law is matte to be
observed, by Collectors of Votes, enraged and disappointed candidates,nnd
all other surts and classes of peoplo,
and if put to the test tbo law has an
awkward habit of asserting its superiority.       	
In his Grand Forks speech Mr. Martiu spoke of tho "baneful influence of
the C. P. Rv' It would be easy to
ret.ii t thnt he did not feel distressed
over the hanofnl influence of tho 0. P.
R. when he hired himself to it as its
solicitor at the Coast, nnd gave up his
political, position and, tor the time,
his revenge for its fat salary. Bnt that
is not tho reply to make to such Inn
gunge, coming from a Premier of a
Canadian Province. A mnn in his position should not endeavor to excite
prejudices that naturally load townrds
nnnrchinm. The Cunndian Paoilio is a
legitimate railway corporation, legitimately authorised, and constructed
nud operated on strictly business principles. Canadians are proud of it as
ou enterprise, and they know that it
bus been a greater factor in the marvelous development aud prosperity of
the conntry these last dor.en years than
any other influence thnt can he named.
Liko Mr. Mnrtin himself, aud like all
other corporations and individuals, it
keeps a shnrp oye to its own interest,
and that is as baneful as it can truth
fully bn nuid to he. In British Columbia at least meu's heads nre getting
filled with notions of socialism that
bode little good to society, and it is
not thu part of a statesman to encourage their growth.
Although much mixed at piosent,
there is good reason to hopo that the
approaching election will do mneh
towards olearing tbe politioal atmosphere. When a new Government cornea
In, one of its first duties will be to
purge tho Civil Service of all dishon-
est.ni.scmpnlous.and partinan officials.
Men entrusted with grent publio responsibilities, in every British community, must bo above suspicion.
Another duty that will assert itself
will be to see that every possible guar
antee necessary for the pnrity of elec
tions shall bo providisl.

BK1EF LOCALS.
Another tag hns boon mlilt-rt In the
O. P, K. Heel, hy the launching of a
71-foot boat at tho 0. 1J. R. ship yards
yesterday. The launch was a most successful one, as she slipped nil' the ways
witbont any assistance, although the
steamer Nelsou was on band to give
her a lift iu ease alio got stuck. The
iww boat has been built in nbout six
weeks and is 71 feet long, II feot lienn.
and II feet draught. She wont into the
water with her engines nn.l boilers
already Installed, ready to make steam
at onoe. She has col been named yet
hot will be put in eon.mission early
uexl week, and takes hor place among
the present fleet. Thero was no oeie-
mony at tbe Inuuchiug and only a fow
people witnesed it.
A largely attended meeting of* the
baseball club as held in Ihe Hume
Hotel Inst night. After tontine business was disposed of tho i..alter of
ganios asked for by Kaslo, Rossland
and Blair College was taken np. It
was deoided to accept the proposal ol
tho Blair College to piny Nelson here
on May I'lith. it wns nlso deoided to
oomplote arrangements will, tho Knslo
relebrntion oommittee for playing two
Nelson tennis there on tho Quean's
Birthday. All players nro naked to
turn ont this nfternoon at 1 o'clock for
a practice game, when the teams to
play on the 24th will bo selnoled. Tbo
exenutive wero asked to petition the
Conncil to finish Sling the hall
grounds, on the ground that most of
tie work has already been done.
Teams were furnished at different
times last week by 0. W. West, Mike
Kelly and the Nelson Transfer Co.
These teams wero l sod to opernto tho
sornpers loaned by W. 0. McLean, As
this muoh of  the work   has been done
by private purlins tho management
think tbev nre justified in asking the
City to complete the work.
