SUBMARINE BOATS.
The
After Adjournment Martinites Endeavoi to
Take Possession and Continue
the Convention.
. sl-l'.l 111, TO THE MINE1I.)
Vancouver, B. 0., April (>.��� The
signs of trouble which wero so ominous at the Liberal convention yester-
dsy materialised today in a small riot
ana the end is not yet
The Credential Committee sat nntil
after midnight, this morning, when
tbe Martinites carried a motion to
rejeot all the proxies for Cassiar. They
met again at eight o'olook this morniug and weeded ont a few more, all
ol whom were known to be opposed to
the Premier. The rejected representatives were somewhat incensed aud
held a little meeting of their own.
At 10 o'olock tho convention opened
and tbe Credential Committee handed
in its report. The chairman had just
asked whit vas to be done with the
report when tbere was a wild yell
without. A door opened, gave way
with a crash, and the Cassiar contingent, headed by Harr> Senkler, of
��� Vancouver, rushed iuto the hall.
A number of tbe people jumped to
. tbir feet to stop the wild rush aud others attempted to make tbem sit down
again. Three or fonr men were knock
ed down and roughly handled but
every one was able to piok himself up
again when a obanoe was given. There
was uo need for an ambulance.
Then tin) ohainnan oalled order, but
there waa no order. Someone called
i'm polioe who in turn oalled for others, bnt when they all arrived on the
scene tbey oonld not determine wbo to
arrest and oontented themselves with
watohing developments for hulf an
huur. The uproar created by tbe in
ttndeis continued. Men nt safe distances from eaoh other shook their fists
threateningly and shouted all kiuds
of names. Finally the Cassiar mon
��� ������'���liulod tbat they had nothing to
gain by their condnot and quietly
wiihdrew.
A motion was moved to reject tbe
Credential Committee aul their report. Prom then until 13:80 p. ni.,
when recess  for   luuob   was deolared,
the scene waa one of pandemonium.
When tbe oonvention reassembled at
2 :80 p. ra. the save order of thing*
continued bnt tbe chairman managed
to get a vote.
The vote ou tbe admittance of Cassiar
delegates was a tie, l.'iti on eaob aide.
The chairman gave a casting voto in
favor of the delegates. The next ten
minutes were the wildest ever seen.
Cheers, shouts and groans made an
awful noise which oonld be heard. a
mile away. The question abont Un
delegates from Eeqnimslt next cam*
up and was carried bv tbe Anti-Mar-
tiuites by a majority of fonr, At 6:30
p. m. a recess for  dinner followed.
On reassembling at 7:80, S.F.Davis,
Q. 0��� of Vancouver, moved: "That
tbe Liberals, in convention assembled,
hereby refuse to aooept the government of Hon. Joseph Martin as a representative Liboral adminisration,
and hereby declare tbat it is optional
with any Liberal to support or oppose
the said government." Martin object
ed that the motiou was out of ordei
and several of nis followers took up
ibe ory. The chairman ruled that the
motion was in ordei, but the Martinites raised such n row that the motiou
could nut be pnt. Pandemoninm
reignod for an bonr and a half, during
which time it looked as if the chairman would be assnnlte.1. Several ex-
cited Martinites rnsbed to the platform, shouting. "Outrage, disgrace,
etc." At length Frank Higgins, ol
Esqnimalt, moved tbat the oonvention
adjourn sine die. Tbis was rushed
thorough and the chairman deolared it
carriod and left tbe chair. Martinites
attempted to take possession and con.
tinue the convention, bnt their efforts
did not suooeod. By 10 o'olook the
hall was deserted.
It is not known what will be done
tomorrow, but ono thing is oertain,
tho deep laid plans of Vanoonver Martinites to foist tbeir man on tbe Liberals of tbe Provinoe has boen effectually blookod.
Admiralty Oonsider the Use of
Suoh Ornlt.
London, April fl.���A question was
asked in the House of Commons today
as to what steps had been taken hy
Her Majesty's Government with reference to submarine boats and tho submarine boat Holland. The First Lord
of the Admiralty, Mr. George J. Gos-
ohen, replied tbat tbe. Amirnlty hnd
given attention to tbe subject, "but,"
he added, "even if the praotioal difficulties attending tbo nse of submarine
boats oonld be overcome tbey must essentially remain a weapoon for the
defensive. And it was natural tbat
those nations wbo anticipate holding
that position should endeavor to develop submarine boats. The best method
ot meeting tbeir attacks was roseiv-
ing consideration and iu this direction, practionl. suggestion would be
valuable. It seems certain that an opponent to tbis weapon must be locked
for in other directions than iu building submarine boats ourselves, for it
is quite dear that ono submarine bout
cannot tight another."

Washington, April B.��� Admiral
George Dewey has confirmed the interview published L in the New York
World to tbe effeot'thnt he will accept
tbe presidency of the United States
shonld the American people desire
bim to fill that offirw. -He refused
make any further statement.
Greatest interest was manifested iu
ohtoial and othor oiroles today in tht
annonnoement by Dewey. His home
was besieged all morning by reporters
anxious to obtain additional information..
To all tbe admiral extended cordial
greeting, but indicated that for the
present at least there was nothing to
add to what bad been published con
oerning his willingness to stand foi
the presidential ollice, shonld the people nominate him.
' Naturally, the chief poiut of inquirj
wan to which great political past]
Dewey would be tbe candidate of, but
to all questions of this character the
replies indicated that no positive determination had been reached. None
of the officials of tha Navy Department cared to express publicly any
opinion as to the admiral's annouirce-
inent, but it is plain to be seen the announcement created profound surprise
in every circle.

troops have been captured by tbe Boers
near Bethttny.
London, April ��. ���(4:08 p. m.)���The.
following is the text of Lord Roberts'
dispatch to the Win Olli.'o, announcing the capture ��� of five companies of
his troops: "Bloemfontein, Thursday, April fi ���Another unfortunate occurrence has occurred, resulting I fear
in tbe capture of n part of tho infantry oonsisting of three companies of

nroceed from Springfontein, his present headquarters, to Roddorburg witb
all possible speed, nud I despatched
the Cameron Highlander's thenae to
Bethany. Ho arrived at Reddersbnrg

London, April ��.���The Wer Office
has received tbe following dispatch
Irom Lord Roberts dated Bloemfontein,
Thursday, April 6.���Methnen telegraphs from Boshof, (in tbe Orange
Kreo State, a little north east of Kimberley) as follows: "Surrounded General Villehois Manreuil and a body of
Boers today, none esoaped. Villebois

General Marenil was tbe chief of

years old, nnd iB said to have boen responsible for many Boer successes.
It is Buid tbnt he eutered the Boer service merely beoause war wan his trade.
He went through a number of oani-
pnigus in tbo Frenoh nrmy. In tbe
death nf General Villebois Marenil tbe
Boers lost their best lnstrnoted soldier

a blado of grass on the neighboring
veldt and all theii horses died of starvation. Tbo stench ahout tbe farmhouse waa something awful. Ou the
fourth day Goueral Dewitt sent a messenger calling on them to surrender
within n few minutes. The situation
wns hopeless. Tho Boers had two Impounders with them, and the squad-
ion was in the luststnge of exhaustion.
Seeing thnt there was ao chance ot re
lief they agreed among themselves to
surrender.
London, April (I.���Tho Times publishes extracts from tho letters of a
British cavalry officer, who accompanied General French throughout the
march from Modder River to Koodoos
Drift. Tbe writer says: "On the
night before the start, Lord Roborts
told the oavalry that thoy were abont
to have an opportunity to uphold the
cavalry traditions of tho British service. General French's mon were sur-
pised at their task as tbey had expected to be employed on General Cronje's
eommnnicai inns whilo the lest of the
army worked around to Kimberley.
But Lord Robert told them that the
situation at Kimberley had become
desperate, while Lord Kitchener added that they must get through if it
cost half their foroes. With theBc
word singing in their ears they stirted
on tbo most exciting ride of tho war.
It was a raoe for tbo Drift on the Kiet,
which Genernl Frenoh secured by a
clever feint and by hard galloping. He
won by only five minutes. The lasi
day's work, before Kimberley was ie-
lieved, also,put thero to a severe test.
Soon after starting they found that the
positions ou their front, left front and
left rear, were hold by an unknown
foroe of the oneiuy, and that they were
almost surrounded. Rut General
Preuoh'a quick eye discovered a gap on
tbe left, about ono nnd n half miles
away. Through this gap on the left
he launched two Lancer regiments,
who were received with a heavy fire,
und before the dust had oleaied nw��
lie let every thing go iu after them.
It was a piece of daring whieh might
have failed but it succeeded completely aud by its success rnised the
siege.

New York, April fl.���The World correspondent at Pretoria, Howard Hille-
gus, has sent a long letter, in which
Im giveB an interesting nnd thrilling
story of tho way in which the Boer
women nre helping their busbands,
sons, and brothors in the war. Tbe
World knows no finer examplo of heroism than tbat exhibited by 14 womou
on one ot the five days fighting around
Spion ' Kap. He says: " A strictly
family party of Boers, 14 men aud
tbeir wives, were entrenuhed in one
position nnd held it with ama/.ing
bravory against a small force of British. For a long time the men
fought incessantly and kept their
wives busy reloading thoir rifles.
Finnlly fifty British soldiers with
fixed bayonets charged ou the on-
trenchn.eut. As they onme closer, the
Boor men crept ovor the entthworks
nud, while the women began shooting.
they tried to hammer back tho British
soldiers with the butts of their gonn.
Before their wives' eyes every one of
tbe 14 Boers wero killed, bayonetted
or shot. The 14 women, so quiokly
widowed, never thought of surrendering, but fonght most valiantly and
coolly for half an hour, until the
British surrounded tbem. Scores of
women bave beeu in evory commando's
laager. Only oue has been without
her rifle nnd bandoliers, tbat was Mrs.
Jonbert, wife of tho Comiunnder-Gcn-
eral of tbe Transvaal forces.

When I left Pretoria for the front a
friend introduced me to a young Boer
couple, wbo were going ou the same
tiain and had beeu married but a
week. I tbongbt my friend wns joking when he said they wore going to
fight the British although both the
Boer and his wife bad Mauser rifles
and eaeh wore three bandoliers. Two
"vi r their shoulders and oue aiound

end ol tbe lino, a short distance north
of LadyBmith, Madame Boer alighted
with her husband, assisted in taking
two horses from the Inst car of the
train and rode away toward one of the
laagers in the distance. The pressuoe
of tho women puts spirit into ihe meu
and keeps them from becoming homesick or despondent. Theso warrior women were tbe first to insist that the
Transvaal shonld rssist England, and
now tbey are sharing thu butdeii."

The oompany stretcher bearers exhibited great plnck and fivo of them
weie umong the wounded. Three
were wounded in ��� oonveying Captain
Aruold from the firing line. The
stretcher upon whicb ho was carried
being made a speoial object of nl tin

with this incident I might notice tbe
courage displayed by Surgeon Capt.
Kiset, who, when the stretcher upon

prosenco of mind, Horilbrook, armed
with a revolver, called on imaginary

SLOW   TO SEE.
Senator Templeinan'B Victoria Times
bus been inther slow to discover the
intolerable tyranny and danger of the
political situation. Newspapers that
have to wait lor a tip fiom the political leuilers at Ottawa before being
able to detect abuses here can hardly
be reckoned as safe goides. Tbere is
nothing in the present situation that
wns not known a mouth ago. Onr
Lieutenant-Governor for the second
time took the extreme course of dismissing his Cabinet. That is a step
11 prudent, cautiuus man will only take
under the most extraordinary circumstances aud in view of tho plainest necessity. Twice iu oue term" naturally
gives rise to tbe suspioion that the
Lieutenant-Governor, mort than the
Cabinets, is at fanlt. He entrusted
tho task of forming a new Government to n member who bud not a follower in Ihe House, and who had become so unpopular in the country tbat
be bad to be ejeoted from tho late Government to save it from discredit.
This was a gross abuse of his prerogative, of which The Times should have
heen aware at tbo time and without
prompting.
Mr. Martin did uot go to the I.egis
litu e for his Cabinet material, for
theiu was not u member of the Legislature who would accept office under

He pioceoded leisurely with bis task.
claiming that he had a free hand and
could taki all the time he desired.
Here was another violation of the rec
ogniscd practice in such cases, and a
Governor who respected his constitutional obligations iu tho premises
would neither havo granted nor tolerated such liberty. Failing the Legislature, a Premier who had a sense ol
the proprieties wonld have sought for
his colleagues among men of well
known reputation aud standing, and
who had some experience in the con
duct of punlic affairs. lustead of do
ing this Mr. Martin set out in search
of obscure men, and seleotea those who
bad never been in publio lifo aud
whose very names even were unknown
to the peopla of the Province. It may
be said this was Mr. Martin's privilege. Si it was his privilege to go to
the penitentiary for his oolloagues,
trusting to the pardoning power to
complete their eligibility. There are
many privileges which it.would be an
outrage on public decency to exercise,
aud Mr. Martin's seleut, n of mateiial
for his labinet was one of the class.
These unknown and untried meu
were taken iii, made Ministers, put in
chaige of their Departments, and entrusted with the full management and
oontrol ol all tho complnx nffaiis of
the Province, with the many and important interests involved in them.
Prom beginning to end it wuh an outrageous abuse of privilege, an insulting deliance of public sentiment.
There wns no local help for it The
people could only look on with amazed
nnd shocked wonder. The only baud
thai could cheok Mr. Martin was the
Governor's, mid through it all the
Governor was a consenting if not innti-
gatiug party. Theie was only one othor
power that could save ns Irom tbe danger nnd humiliation ol Mr. Martiu's
insane pranks, and that was the power
0/ the Executive at Ottawa. It has
taken alarm at the situation here, and
it is said that infloeucos will soon
be set in motion to put an end to the
snandiil. It is only on this intimat'on
Renator Templnmaii's paper is able to
realise the shame and outiage of the
proceedings of tbo past few weeks.
CUT THE CONNECTION.
That wnrkingmoii shonld have and
enjoy tho privilege to nnlte for their
own protection aud  advancement   is a
proposition so reasonable that no one
but an unreasonable person would"
think of disputing it. Them is no
harm, but often much good, iu the
proper and legitimate use of Unions;
it is the abuse of them that excites antagonism. Too often they fall under
tbe control of meu who are agitators
in disposition, who nre too lazy to
work, and who become imbued with
those extreme theories of socialism
that lend unbalanced minds into anarchy.
Miners' Unions nere in tho West nre
surrounded with dangers. On the Canadian side ut least they aro composed
ol men who are for thn most part ns
well disposed as any ether class of the
community ; mej who are industrious
and law-abiding, who hu\e respect for
the rights of others, and who desire
nothing more than that their own
should havo equal respect. There is
uo danger of these men doing unlnwfH
things or demanding more than justice if left to themselves. Bnt unfortunately they are nut removed from the
reach of evil influences. The Unions
heie are affiliated with the Western
Federation of Miners, whoso controlling spirit is tho man Boyco, who is
convicted on tho evidence of the Governor of an adjoining State of having
incited the riot whicli a year cr two
ago resulted in tho murder of two persons and the destruction of much valuable property. Ho is a bad man, and
nothing good can come of intimate or
remote connection with him. Wo do
not know any reason why the miners
of British Columbia should not have
their Unions; but if they cnn only
exist at tbe cost of affiliation witb this
foreign Federation, whose record bears
tbe indelible staiu of muider and in-
cendiaiism, it would he far better and
more in harmony with Canadian respect for law aud order to abandon
them. British Columbia in i tiers
shonld Boom to have any soit of connection witb au oi-gaiii/ itnni that is
dominated by a Boyce, or is so depraved in character as to recognise him.

Onr amiable morning contemporary
oonld vastly improve itself by going to
school again and mastering tlio nidi-
inenta ol common imiibe. If it wero to
do tbif. it wonld leavo tlio Kight-Hour
law alone, for a spell nt least. Mr.
Taylor, at Revelstoke, is taking a sensible conrso. He Ih satisfied with a
standard flight-hour day. It in presumed also that tho miners are. In de.
dining to advocate the repeal of the
law he ia aoting iu nccoiiiance with
his own oonviotiona aud not rnnniug
counter to tho convictions of tbe minors. When ho goes forther, however,
aud (.peaks for a modification of tbe
law that will permit mii.ers to work
longer hours if they wish and it is tbo
desire of those who employ them, he
may part company with some of the
miner*, but he keeps closely iu tonoli
with coramou sense, g Mr. Houston's
paper thinks not. wbioh only goes to
show that Mr. Houston's paper is under influences that aro either sinister
in character or of extremely ignorant
origin. Tho men who can welcome
and hold fast to a law that abridges
their liberty ��s citizens of u free nation aro unworthy tho proud privilege
of being British subjects. Wnrhingmen
in (ireni Britain or in the Australasian Colonies will not Hobmit to bo I ieil
down to au eight-hour day, although
willing enough to have it so provided
that they shall uot work longer unless
at their own discretion. When Mr.
Taylor says he would nsk tho Legislature to put miners on the footing nf
froe oitiaeiis ho is merely proving
laithfnl to his Blitisli instincts, ami
when Mr. Houston's paper linos fault
with him for doing so it merely confirms what is generally suspectod, that
it is of very shallow understanding.

Spectators of the South African
drama aie dissatisfied ; tho play drags
too much to suit tbem. Something to
thrill the emotions and move to ex
citement is reqnirod every day. The
snrtendur of Crouje lasted well enough
until tho occupation of Bloemfontein,
but the latter event was so tame that
the effect wore off in tho course of two
or three days, aud then tho audience
became impatient for a march on Protorin. The nctors on the stage know
better, however. A march on Pretoria
ia no holiday jauut, and Lord Robert!
is too old a hand to set out until he
has marie all tho preparations neces-
aary to sucoess, and necessary also to
tho least sacrifice of life. When thesa
are completed to his satisfaction���not
ours���he will move,and not until then.
Meantime wo may disabuse onr minds
of any hope that the Hoers will invest
Bloemfontein; that is nn entertainment that will not lie provided.

Mary Gooderou and hor husband,
who livo on a float at Thirteen Mile
Point, had a bad day of it yesterday.
Iu the first place Mrs. Gooderon bad
Hnrry Williams np before Magistrate
('reuse on a charge of assault. Sbo had
several witnesses ou tbe stand, bnt
tbey failed to prove the oharge made.
They did sbow, however, tbat Mrs.
Gooderou was guilty of selling liquor
witInmi ii license. The assault was alleged to have been committed last
Tuesday night. Williams and others
wore at tbe home of tbe Gooderons
nnd were drinking. Mrs. Gooderon
ind a hill against Williams for whiskey supplied him and over this a dispute occurred. The bill was for $1B
and Williams claimed it should have
boen for only 16. Then the trouble
begnu. Condemn attacked Williams
and knocked him down and Mrs.
Gooderou got into it, too. She seized a
Ifnn that was hanging ou the wall and
went ut Williams with the bntt end
of it. The only blow ..ruck with this
weapon lauded on Williams' eye and
left it highly decorated. After a further aciimmage Williams was rescued.
Mrs. Gooderon then sworn ont a warrant for Williams' arrest. Magistrate
Crease evidently thonght Williams the
more abused of the two aud he dismissed tbe case, with costs against Mrs.
Gooderon. After this case was disposed of Mrs. Gooderon became tne defendant in a caso charging her with
selling liquor without a license. Sev-
���nil witnesses were oalled, and while
on tbe staud in her own behalf, Mrs.
Gooderon admitted giving away whiskey. Tbe judge thought a clear oase
hnd boen mnde ont a.nl fined tbe de
fendant $100 and costs, granting her a
week in wbioh to pny it.

STORY OP   A SLAVE.
To be bnuiul hand and foot for years
by the chains ot disease is the worst
form ol slavery. George 0. Williams,
nf MnnoboHter' Mich, tolls how suoh a
slave was made free. Ho rays: "My
wife has been so helpless for five yours
tbat she could not turn over in bed
Blone. Alter using two bottles of
Klentrio Hitters she is wonderfully
imnroved aud able to do her own
work." This supreme remedy for female diseases quickly onres nervousness, sleeplessness, melancholy, headache, baokacbe, fainting and dizzy
spells. This miracle working medicine is a godsend to weak, siokly, run
down people. Every bottle bottle guaranteed. Only 50 cents. Sold by Oan-
ada Drug & Book Store.

Because a Watch has

Meanwhile the Hritish public is getting to realize the difficulty to be

nnd is reviving premature ideas with
respect to the time when the war will

it will have ended by the beginning

body of BOme'flve hundred British troops

completely within 35 miles Df the great
Hritish army, has for its business to
guard a section of nearly ninety miles
