WASTED
Where a Lot of Money  Expended on Street Work
Is Going.
Many More  Men  Employed
Than    Are   Really
Required.
Mayor Houston's Method of
Purchasing Votes for
Himself.
Taxpayers of Nolson nre beginning
to realize that n (Treat dual of the oity's
money ia being squandered on street
work that John Honston may gnin lor
himself votes at the coming eleotion.
It is true that tho work being done
hns been ordered by the Oity Council,
bnt the wanner in which tho work
shall he done is left for direction entirely in the hands of the Mayor, upon
the ground that the municipal clauses
net places within the jurisdiction of
the ohief executive of tho Oity the authority to direct all Oity work and all
city employ!es. Mayor Houston claims
thiB authority and for tbo time being
the Council hns praotioally granted it
to him. The money is being wnsted,
therefore, in connection with the work
whioh has been ordered dona and
whioh is being done. Mnyor Houston
is responsible for tbe wnste.
Ou Tuesday tbe foreman in ehnnre of
the street work spent almost tho entire
dny in an effort to find Mr. Houston
n.id get from him instruction in regard to certain work. The Mayor was
not in the Oity Hnll nor in his own
ollice. He wns out electioneering nnd
during thnt time n gang of men iu the
employ of the Oity nnd drawing money
from the pockets of the taxpayers were
practically idle. The foreman could
not go ahead upon his own responsibility aud he was therefore compel led to
chase abont town in order to find the
mnn who is paid by the Oity to look
nfter its affairs. If, ns it should be,
tbe City Enginoer hnd authority to
direot the work thore would hnvo been
no waste of time or mrney. Tho Oity
Engineer was io his oflico at the Oity
Hall. He could nave been appealed to
at any time aud would have given the
nocossary instructions. But 60 is prevented from doing this. The power
granted him by virtue of tha ollico he
holds has. been taken from him by
Mayor Houston, who is the self-
nppointed Oity Eogineer aud probably
will continue to be until he has been
pnid 111 ballots for every dollar of the
Oity'B money he is now squandering.
It is a well known fact that there
are at work upon the Oity streets today
a great many more meu than aie needed to accomplish the work under way.
Iu some cases they nre in each other's
way, falling over one another, as it
were, that tbey may be kept engaged
until election day and then deposit
their ballots for John Houston. And
overy day moio meu are being put to
work. They nre gathered in by Houston heelers, tbeir names are given to
the Mnyor aud ho either personally
putB thera to work or instructs the
foreman so to do. If Mr. Houston
should condnot his printing oltice ns
hs in at present oon ducting the City's
liusiness.he would hnve about two meu
to every type case and two mon to
every preBs, a halt a dozen business
insnngeis, a large staff of editors and
reporters and would hiBt until the first
pay day should arrive. But be thinks
too much of his own businesH to do
this. He would then be wasting bis
own money, which he is too smart to
do. He does not care, however, how
mnch of the City's money ho wastes,
That is another matter. It affects not
in the lenBt his own pocket. He is
buying voteB with tho money whicli
rightfully belongs to evory bnsiness
mnn and every taxpayer of Nelson.
And the business men and taxpayers
are permitting it.
No blame whatever attaches to tho
men who are working. They are honest in their efforts to secure work and
would be foolish to lefuae it when it
is offered tbem.   Tbey  may  not have
heen asked an to their politics and
would probably rightfully rosont auy
Intimation thnt beoause thev have
heen given work by Mayor Houston
thoy will, of course, vote for him.
Bnt there is in tho henrt of every man
a son mi of gratitude and this is what
Mr. Hnimton relies upon to bring hiin
thn voIch. lie doea not forgot to impress upon litem all that they aro under obligation to him. It is for all of
this that he so stubbornly resisted all
attempts to plnce the street work in
the hands of the Public Works Committee nnd tlio City Engineer. If tbis
had been done be would not havo had
the hiring of tho men and would nave
missed tho opportunity of purchasing
^otes with other people's money.
If thoro wero not In the employ of
the Oity nt the presont time meu who
have the Oity interests more nt heart
than Mr. Houston, the condition of
affairs would be muoh worse than it
is. Only a day or two ago Mr. Houston wont to a man in charge of street
work and told this foromnn that be
hnd Borne mere men whom ha wanted
put to work. The foreman told Mr.
Houston that be already had as many
men as he required, that he could get
along with leas and conld not possibly
Und room in tlio work for any moro.
But that made no difference witb the
Mayor. He was determined to find
work for the men he had in mind, for
they weie voters, and therefore told
the foreman that the meu must be put
to work. He hud leckoued without his
host, however, for the foreman refused
point blank to put the men to work
and furtbermoie told the Mayor that if
he insisted in his demands he could
Hud another foreman. Tho Mayor
knew it would bo useless to discharge
the foreman for he wonld he reinstated
hy tbe Council, and was compelled,
therefore, to withdraw. The meu were
pnt to work elsewhere.
This is but om incident of many.
There aro nthors equally interesting to
taxpayers.

London, May 8.-4:10 a. m.���The
immediate objective of Lord Roberts
is to establish a line of British posts
from one frontier of the Free Stato to
another at right angles witb tbo railway, thus provonting Boer raids southward. It is essential, therefore, that
Ihe Boera shonld be expelled from tho
rugged Thaba N'chu distriot and be
forced to retire to Ladybrand. As a
result of tbe desultory firing Monday

Preparations for au adanvce continue at Kimberley. Sir Alfred Milner bas written to tbe Mayor of Kimberley assuring bim that the relief of
Mafeking has not ceased to occupy his
attention and that of the military authorities, and nothing will be left undone to raise the siege at the earliest
possible moment.
Tbe British garrison along the railway to Warrenton have heen strengthened and supplies nre going forward.

paling to resist the advance at Phok-

Thaba N'ohu, Tuesday, May 1.���
Afternoon.��� Oon. Hamilton's division
was engaged yesterday and today in
forcing a passage northward. At
Houtnek tbe Boer front had a line of
huts commanding the Bides of the Nek.
The Canadians and Gordons attacked
the Hill to the left, and the Shrop-
smns and Marshall'* Horse, supported
by a battery, also made an attaok nn
the enemy, who eventally fled, leaving
many wounded and tbe passage was
cleared. The Boers on the mountain
are now shelling the outlying oamp,
nocessitating removal to another place.
Tho Boers have three guns on the
hill to the eastward of this place oat
side t) e range of the British artillery.
The Boer shelling Is not doing any
damage. The enemy retain their positions and the British are not attempting to dislodge thorn. Gen. Hamilton,
by reaching Houtneok, after a fnll
day's fighting, secured the Thubt
N'chu-liloemfoutein road.
London, May 8. ���Tbe Lorenzo (Unique/, correspondent of the Daily Mail,
telegraphing yeaterday, says: "A
Frenoh steamer has arrived with 10,-
000 bags of coffee and in,noi. bagn of
sugar, consigned to a syndicate which
is buying for the Pretoria Government. Four more steamers with similar oonisgnmencs are expected this
montb. It is evident that tbe Transvaal intends making a long resistance.
"Tbe Boers have been constructing
fortifications at Lydenburg, where tbey
continue storing provisions. Tbere is
also evidence oi an intention to con-
neot the disused state railway, running northwest from Homatipoort,
witb Lydenburg to destioy the Nether
land railway, as a last resort, and hold
tbe Drakenbetg range an an uastein
barrier with Lydenborg ns beadqmr
ters. If this plan should he adopted
the oampaign will become exceedingly
difficult.
"Tbe Poiluguose authorities here
objected to H. M. 8. Forte using her
searoh lights and they next objected to
night patrols. Consequently the cruiser now steams outside the harbor
nightly to avoid a possible repetition
of tbe Maine disaster."
London, May 8.���The Morning Post
baa tbe following despatch from Winston   Churchill,   dated   Thaba   N'ohu,
Londou.May V���It is difficult to unravel tbe tangled stories coming from
the neighborhood of Thaba N'ohu, but
apparently the British forces are engaged in a movement having for its
object the hemming in of tbe Boerc
siill in that distriot, while Generals
French and Rundle are holding the
Boers at Thaba N'ohu, tbe Broadwood's Cavalry has been pushed on
Hootneck in the bope of intercepting
the Federal convoys between Ladybrand and Win lung. As Gen. Both*
ban been reinforced tbere is every
pros] ect of sharp fighting. The new
scene of operations and tbe geneial
movements of the various columns are
taken to indicate that Lord Roberts
Is deploying hia arm) preparatory to

seems likely that it is the Commander-
in Chiefs intention to advance simultaneously from Kmibctley, Bloemfontein aud Ladysmith witb the view of
preventing the Boers from concentrating then forces at any given point A

yesterday, chronicles the prevailing
opinion among tbo townspeople tbere

MB. HOUSTON AND THE LIBERAL
MEETING.
Wo do not know, of course, how
muoh color of its own Mr. Houston's
paper has introduced into its report of
the Liberal meeting on Tuesday night,
but there aro ono or two shades that
exoite suspicion of having been touched up to suit the- occasion of the Peculiar Party's candidate. Thero aro
no doubt a large number of honest,
intelligent electors who object on principle to the introduction of Federal
party Hues; there aro probably a number of them here in Nelson. Tbey
argue that onr Provincial affairs aro
distiuot from Federal affairs, and profess to fear tbat to divide on the old
lines would be nu encouragement to
Federal interfotenoo and to the general
mixing up of the affairs of both. There
should be iio entangling alliances, they
say; the two should be kept soparate,
and especially should we go abont our
Provincial affairs without regard to
Federal considerations.
All of whioh is quite true, no doubt,
although The Miuer belioves it has
shown that tbo introduction of Federal
party lines does not necessarily involve
the Introduction of Federal issues or
Federal interference of any kind. How
ever, let that go. Those opposed to
party linos maintain thnt there should
be no connection between Federil and
Provincial politioe. The Liberal meeting tbe other night voted against
party lines, and Mr. Houston's paper
gives as a reason that their iutroduo-
tlon in this election would split the
party and "havo a bad effect on Ihe
Federal electious whbh are now not
far distant"! Hero is avoidance of
Federal mattors with a vengeance. Iu
theory they oppose parly lines because
they would introduce Federal politics ;
in practice they oppose thorn because
they would prejudice their chances in
the next Federal election. The Miner
wonld introduce party lines without
the slightest legard to their influence
on either of fhe Federal parties, and is
iu the confident nssurnnce that they
need not involve the fusion or overlapping of Federal and Provincial interests. That is a consistent policy, at
least, whioh is moro than can be said
of Mr.Houston's interpretation of local
Liberal policy.
Again wo are told that there was a
desire to uominntn Dr. Hall as a
straight party candidate. The nomination would have been a good one.
Dr. Hall's service ns au Alderman has
been short, but it has been of a character to give tho strongest guarantoe
that, he would mako a useful and creditable representative as a member of
tbe Legislature. Pnt this wish did not
prevail, evidently to tho grent relief of
Mr. Honston, whoso paper says that
if eleoted he "wonld stand alone us an
Independent, there being no recognised
Liberal leader in tbe field." The ob-
jection is not without force. A man
wbo stands alone, with no party and
no leader, bas little opportnnity to bo
of service. We hope Mr. Houston will
apply tbis to his own oase. If elected
he would have noither party nor leader.   Tbere is uo doubt tbat Mr. Cotton
is wholly out of the game. Hn is qnit-
ting Provincial politics, and it is said
that he is acting on Tho Miner's nil-
viou to try for tho Commous at Ottawa. With tbe disappearauco of Mr.
Cotton, his party dissolves into its
original elements. Thore is no longor
a Cotton party, and Mr. Houston
would represent nothing but himself.
Ho would "stand alone ns an Indo-
pend.iut, thero boing no recognised
leader of his party in the field",and uo
party requiiing a leador. Mi. Houston
would be in the same predicament as
Dr. Hall���worso even, for Dr. Hall
would represent a living and breathing party at least, while Mr. Houston
has no party to represent.
Tho following is taken from Mr.
Houston's paper:
"Every mnn who has applied to
have hin name placed on the voters'
list in Ibis or any other Killing shonld
he allowed the privilege of voting if
In is entitled to the right. No name
should he kept off nn veiy ut the behest
of political waul heelers."
If it had said that water is wet it
would have said something equally
now and equally startling. Every man
entitled to vote haB the right to vote.
No douiif about that. No name shonld
bo kept off a list at tho mere behest of
any person, wnrd heolor or other.
These are tho merest commotiplaoe
truths, that oome within the comprehension of a four-your-old child. In
other words, water is wet, and a lot
of it makes a lake. The law prescribes
certain qualifications, nnd within
thoso any person is entitled to register
and to vote. But a fraudulent registration doos not entitle to vote, and
should be Hcored off. A fow weeks
ago Mr. Cliffe, of Sandon, entered several bundled appeals against the Slocan list, and has ever sinoe beeu the
object of vulgar nnd savage abuse. He
oanuot get qualified names off the list,
and is not seeking to; he is merely appealing agaiust improper or fraudulent
registrations. A gentleman in this
City is doing the same in regard to
tbe Nelson list, and immediately he
becomes tbe object of abuse, aud is told
by Mr. Houston's paper tbat he is endeavoring to "deprive men of the right
of citizenship merely because he believes they will exercise their rightB
contrary to bis politioal ideas. Small
bnsineBB for even a lawyer. " A lawyer knows he oanot deprive of citizenship any person who is entitled to the
right to exercise it,and so ones aohild.
He is appoaling against those wbo intend to exerciee a right fraudulently
obtained, nud to be abused for it is
very convinoing proof that Mr. Houston has been at his old and congenial
ocoupation of stuffing tbe list witb
fraudlent names. If tbe list were an
honest one be would uot trouble himself to protest against tbe appeals. We
learn many things in Nelson, and the
latest is that it is a crime to appeal
against frauds in a voters' list.
Elsewhere such appeal is invited by
la* and weloomed by every law-
abiding citizen.
It is apparent now tbat Mr. Martin
and Mr. Maluues have been deoeiving
the |i sip!,., and unfortunately there is
too muoh reason to suspect tbat the
Lieuteiiaiit-Govornor has been a party
to the deception. Ryder, the pedlar,
was tiikeu into the Government to
keep a place warm for Mr. Mclnnes.
The Lieuteuant-Governor has been so
good to Mr. Martiu beoause it was
understood betwoou them that the son
should have a portfolio, and the three
of them should run the Province to
suit themselves. It was not intended,
perhaps, t3 expose tho game until the
oampaign was ooncluded, but tho cli111
oulty of procuring a seat for Mr.
Molunes made it necessary to draw off
the itinerant Rdyer aud leave an opening in Comox. Altogether it is the
strangest political experience ever
known in actual life. It reads more
like a tale from some freak romance.
Mr. Houstou's leader has deserted
his parly, and tho party has gone to
smash. In politios it is usual to have
somo definite purpose in view ; what
doos Mr. Honstou expect to bo ablo to
accomplish in the event of bis election? There is nothing ho cau do;
lio will" staud alouo," utterly helpless and without influence. To count
even ns nn atom ho would require to
nttacb himself to one of the other parties, nud unless he is quite sincere in
taking the electors for fools he may see
the necessity of expressing his prefernce
before tho campaign is much older.
The peoplo may take it into their
heads at the last moment that it may
not bo tho height of wisdom to vote
blindly. Whnt course does he propose
to take should we commit tbo onoi-
uious folly of electiug him?

Held a Meeting Yesterday.
Members Presont  From All Over tho
province to Discuss Church Work
Tbo Synod of British Columbia opened yesterday   morning at 10 o'olock ut
tbe Presbyterian Ohnroh  with a large
attendance.
The members presont from the different Presbyteries were : Oalgary, R��v.
Cluirles MoKillop, Lethbrldge, Hov.
H. B. Ginnt, Piuchor Creek; Edmonton, Rev. D. G MoQneen, Edmonton,

Rev. Mr. Young, Slocan City, Rev. J.
Monro, Trail, Hev. If. Young and
Hev. A. A. Alexander; Kumloops,
Rev. .1. 0. Stewart, of Kamloops,
After the opening exercises the retiring Moderator, Hev. 1). (5. McQueen,
preached an interesting sermon. liis
text was, "Having chosen us iu bim,
before the foundation of tho world,
that we should bo holy and without
blame for him In love." In his discourse he empbasi/.ed tbo thought. Ihot
Und had chosen us for the definite purpose that wo should be holy, both in
our lives and in our deeds, and that
the perfection of the church should
and must be our ideal.
Following this onino tbe election of
a moderator for the ensuiug year, aud
Kov. O. A.Wilson, of Mount Pleasant,
was unauiiuously chosen for that post.
Mr. Wilson is a favorite minister in
Vancouver and the selojtion wns a
wise one.
The Home Mission oommittee'B report was then bauded in and the Synod
adourned until the ovening nt 8:110.
In the afternoon Judge and Mrs.
Forin were at homo to the membeis
and during tbe afternoon all the visiting ministers and a great many of tbe
local congregation oalled upon Jndge
and Mrs. Forin, where they were most
hospitably entertained.
At H:80 o'olook last evening the
Synod again convened aud the first
business wns the consideration of the
report cf tbe committee on Home Missions. Id ths report it was shown that
seventeen new mission fields hnd beeu
taken up during the year, making So
missions now existing in the Synod.
Two of tho Holds hnvo already heroine
augmented congregations and two cf
them are self-supporting congregations.
Daring tbe last year $18,372 has
beea spent in this work. For the ensuing year 128,150 will be required, of
whioh J4.0B0 will be used for work in
the Yukon.
Rev. D. MoG. Gandier, of Rosslnnd,
then spoke upon the good accomplished
by the Home Missions and dilated
upon its vnlue to individuals, to the
church aud to the country. He called
attontion to the fact that much mouey
was needed to carry on the work. Seventy-seven new fields west of l.nke
Superior required |850 each. For tbe
work among tbe Galicians and Douko-
boorB, an extra $3,000 was required.
Then again, $12,000 was needed to
offset the last of the contribution from
Great Britniu, whicb heretofore has
amounted tn that sum. In all *:i0,000
more waa needed for the ensuing yenr
than wan given last year.
Thou followed remarks from representatives of the different Presbyteries
upon the Century Fund. It was stated
that dnriug the year Edmonton would
raise $3,000, Calgary $11,000, Kamloopn
$.1,000, Kootenay $0,000, Westminster
���si::.mm nnd Victoria $0,300. iu all a
total of $4C,000.
The Rev. J. A. Logan presented an
enoouraging report on Sabbath schools,
showing tbnt there were now 117 of
these woitby institutions in the Synod.
He called attention to the need of a
better supervision of theso sohnols and
recommended tho appointment of a
Sabbath School Missionary for tbo
Synod.
The Synod then ndjouned until this
morning nt 11:110, when tbey will again
meet at the chuch and tho Foreign
Missions committee will baud in its
report. This evening thero will be
a public meeting at the church at 8 :!I0
o'olock.

Up to datoj Samuel Neelnnds litis not
hoard of any clue to the thief or

daring the time the store was closed,
hnt in what manner il is impossible to
Bay.
Tho rjck crusher is still working
unevenly uud ovory oucu in a while
has to lie stopped to rearrange the

part a "cast iron road."
Mr. J. O. Patenande, who has been
ill for several mouths ut Hat lie Creek,

hy Dr. Armstrong. If they are as well
treated as the rest of the Hume's
"hoarders" they will "wax aud grow
fat." :
The Fire Department had a practice

repairs, in four minutes from the time
the alarm rang the firemen had a hose
playing from a roof on tho above corner.
