MAFEKING
Fate of the Plucky Garrison
Is Still Shrouded in
Mystery.
Relief Column Is Reported to
Have Had a Sharp
Engagement.
Stories from the Front Tell
of Successes for the
British,
(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London, May 17���5 a.m.���Tho Brit-
relief column fought the Boers at Era.,
nipan, 32 miles south of Mafeking, on
Tuesdoy according lo a telegram received Wednesday night at Lorenzo
Marquez from Molope. 100 miles north
of Mafeking. This intelligence is accepted with some reserve, hecaiise it is
difficult to understand how the news
oould have been so quickly put on the
wires from a place 182 tulles from the
scene of the engagement.
A correspondent ot the Morning Post
presumably John Stuart, iB reported
captured by the Iioers at Kraaipan.
The British public is lieenlv expectant
of the announcement that Mafeking
has been relieved. In the army the
opinion seems tn prevail that this lias
already been nccoinplished allhoiigb
two hours after midnight the War Office suid no news had been received by
them. The steadfast courage of the
hunger-bitten garrison has produced a
deep impression and the news of sue
cor is awaited with more anxiety limn
has been, felt regarding any other
event ofthe war.
Douglas Story, the Daily Mail's correspondent at Pretoria, wires: "The
Boer Government is holding back some
big news. Feverish activity prevail,
here. President Kruger is working
day and night. The latest Boer official
bulletin is that the relief column has
been defeated with great loss."
Lord Roberts continues passive at
Kroonstadt. His cavalry are stretching like a semicircular screen, many
miles in length with overlapping
flanks. The Kroonstadt censor permits the passage of long despatches
dealing with incidents prior to Ihe occupation. It seems that General
French's cavalry had one lively light
after crossing the Zand rivor. A mixed
squadron composed of the Greys, the
Inniskillen Carbineers nnd Australian
Horse, took a kopje nud dismounted
The Boers suddenly fired from a concealed position, killing many horses
and stampeding the rest. The Boers
then advanced in overwhelming numbers, and drove the squadron, capturing some. The Boers robbed the dead
and looted the saddles. Finally a
brigade of cavalry drove them off.
Further north the Hussars charged
the Boers.killing and wounding many
stragglers with sabres anil pistols.
Lord Roberts' infantry marched l-'O
miles in seven days. General French
marched 30 miles in one day. Tho
Boers when retiring, dragged 39 guns
through to Kroonstadt. General Buller is moving towards Newcastle. Be
appears'to be using 25,000 men against
5,000 or (1,000 men. His operations
will almost certainly result in his
forcing his way into the Transvaal,
possibly in time to co-operato with
Lord Roberts' advance, although llen-
eral Buller is 1)52 miles from Jolinos-
nesburg, or 25 days' march.
Persons acquainted with Col. Baden-
Powell'B scheme of defence at Mafeking assert that the occupation of the
Kaffir location by the Birrs would not
endanger tbe garrison provided relief
came quickly.
A Dane who was captured by the
Mini111 Afrioan Horse says there are fi00
Frenchmen with the Hours who nro
opposing General Bnller together with
many Germans and other foreigners.
A Ladysmith correspondent of the
Doily Telegraph says that only one
Boer was shot tn the movoment which
resulted in tbe taking of Helpmakaar.
General Rnndle is sweeping through
the northeast of tbe Free State.    The
Bonis are dissolving before him, nnd
sonic are surrendering. Their mnin
force is assembled between Fiokeburt!
and Winlmrg, bnt it is without olosi
organization. Todays installment of
Ihe war story   from   every pnrt of   the
field is therefore Beamingly n narrative
of British successes, but with tho
Boois preparing for a lust desperate
Ming farther in the interior and with
Boor gum ilia parties looting house*
mid storos in|thfl northwest seotiou
of Cape Colony it is not nt all easy foi
tho British. Upington district is loyal
where the guoiilla taotics of tho Boers
uro jnst now most in evidence. A
Canadian battery of lfi ponurters arrived at Hoira, Portugese East Afrioa,
May 10th.
London, May 15.���The most important development in today's war news
is the statement cabled from Cape
Town announcing that the Boer Delegates advised the Transvaalers to surrender if defeated at the Vaal. This
remarkable announcement is vouched
for by good authority, and evidently
obtains more credence in Cape Town
than a mere rumor. The occupation
of Glencoe was merely a logical sequel
of Gen,Buller's advance and the Boers'
retiring movements. As usual the
Boors arc reported to be Hying precipitately. Also, but as usual, the uc-
counts add that their transport aud
guns are removed in' safety.
Nothing further has been heard
from Mafeking and it is reasonable to
suppose that tho Conditions there are
unchanged. The prolonging of the
siege only Intensifies Groat Britain's
anxiety to hoar of its relief.
About 1100 more troops have arrived at Bicra, Portuguese, EiiBt Africa. Among them is Lord Dunraven, .
who accompanied the Dunraven Sharp
Shooters as a supor-numcrary captain
of the baiallioii stall. The Governor
f Bicra, during a speech at a dinner
to the Conimundary, said: Friends, as
we have always been of England we
never could have realized the magnificent unity of the Anglo-Saxun race
without such an object lesson. Baals
izing this, Portugal not only congratulates her ancient ally, but rejoices
with it as the strengthening of a
friend is tho strengthening of ourselves.
Apparently Lord Roberts is still
waiting at Kroonstadt preparatory to
making a swift movement on the Vaal
River.
Loudon May 1(1-The War Offlcn has
posted the following despatch from
General Holler, dated Dundee, May 1(1:
"Wo occupied Glencoe yesterday. The
Tl'ansVaelers have now evacuated Big-
garslinrg. The Free Staters on the
Drakensberg are much reduced iu number.
"The Carolina Lindonberg and Pretoria Commandos ticked North from
Illatikulu on the 18th nnd llthof May.
Eleven guns wore entrained at Glencoe. The last train, with iiinbnlaucea,
left there at, dawn May 15th. The re
suit has in en largely produced by the
action of the Fifth Division, which (taring the last few days has doue a good
deal of harJ work, marching, mountain climbing and road making.
Trains are now running to Weasel's

men of Prince Alfred's Guards, while
out foraging yesterday, a few miles
from Kioiinsfiulf, visited a farm (lying

When within forty yards of the enclosure they were fired upon by fifteen

Ottawa, May 16.���In the House,
Dai in enquired whether the Government was aware of the quarterly dividend recently declared by the Standard
Oil Co., and of 10 per cent, dividend
for three months np to May, and aBked
whether it wae the Government's intention to tako measures this session to
ourtail the Standard Oil Company's
power of extorting exhorbitant pricw
out of the pockets of the Canadian oil
consumer.
In reply thereto, the Minister el
Finance Bsid : ���' I have no information
respecting the affairs of the Standard
Oil Oo. There has been no legislation
under tbe present Government whioh
would assist that company in charging
exborbitant prices. Every step taken
by the present Government, either
with respeot to legislation or to departmental administration, has been in tbo
direotion of removing reBtriotions and
lessening tho price of oil. The duty on
imported oil whioh existed under the
late Government has been reduced.
Burdensome regulations existing under
the lata Government with respeot to
inspection of oil, which conld only
effect the prioe after it had beon put
in barrels, have been abolished, thns
facilitating cheap, good and convenient
methods of handling tbe oil. Tbe
number of paints at which oil oan be
importer! in bnlk in tank cars has been
inoreased. Permission has been given
to use tank waggonB. Tbo former regulation forbidding tbe use of tank
shipB has been repealed, thus giving
along the lino of water communication,
the opportunity to receive oil by cheap
transportation. Railway companies increased their freight rates on oil in
suoh a manner as likely to prevent
competition in the oil trnde. The Gov
eminent on the advioe of the railway
oonimitiee of the Privy Conncil disallowed tbe inarense and ordered the
restoration of tho former rates. In
short, every step ta'ion by tbe preseut
Government in relation to the oil business hns been for the purpose of removing bnrdeuBome restrictions, reducing
tho cost of handling oil, and cheapen
ing tho artiola to the consumer. If
the price of oil has receutly inoreased
to tho aousumers and lurger profits are
being ronlizod by the mnnufacturcia
either in the States or Oanndn, such
profits are uot due lu any measure of
tbe Government, but must be duo to
other oauseB lor which the Government are In the smallest degroe responsible."
St. Catherines, May lfi.���Tho plant
of the Welland Vnlo Company und tho
Canada Oyole and Motor Company's
worns were destroyed by fire about

etnrted in the hardening department of

million dollars.

ment of the defendnntB was nlso inked.
The evidence of a man named Kaunori-
giesser showed that the firm had a

A MESSAGE OF PEACE.
Ambassador Choate's Happy Remark at
a London Dinner.
London. May 111��� V. S. Ambassador
('In,all' was the guest afa dinner this
evening of the Ancient Company of
Fishmongers. The assemblage, which
was very distinguished, included the
Chinese, Swiss and Servian Ministers,
Sir Thomas Henry Sanderson, Permanent I'ndcr Secretary of State for Foreign Alfairs.juid other Foreign Office
officials the Australian Federation
delegates, the Colonial AgentB, the
Earl of Cork, Lord Denbigh and many
members of the House of Commons.
1 iai l.v in his npoeoh Mr. Choste remarked i" Forget your wars and internal ootninotious, and look qcietly
into the facos of the diplomatic representatives of tbe world who nro
bringing yon only messages of peace,"
The applause that greeted this apparent commonplace remark, could only
be appreciated by those who knew
that the principal topio of conversation had been the Cordial reception of
the Boer delegates lu New York.
ALL OFF
Voters' List Will Be Minus
Those Few Hundred
Names.
Mr. Justice Drake to Give
Judgment to That Effect
Today.
Martin Convention at Kaslo
Did Not Take Place
Last Night.
The several hundred names which
were objected to as going on the voters'
list for tbe Nelson Riding illegally and
whioh were plnoed there by Collector of
Votes Harry Wright, will not go oo. Mr.
.Tastiae Drake, before whom an application for an order prohibiting the Collector from adding them to the list was
made and argued by the counsel repre
senting tbe Collector and tbe objeotore,
will render judgment this morning and
will grant prohibition. This practically
means.those objeoted to will not voteat tbe
election next month as tht only recourse
to law now is an appeal to tbe Full
Court, whioh sits at Vancouver on the
28th inst., and enough time would not
be available to have the names added,
even if Mr, Justice Drake's decision
were reversed.
It is believed, however, that
neither party to the proceedings will
appeal to the full bench. It la understood that the objectors will allow the
matter to rest as Mr. Justice Drake
leaves it, and Collector of Votes
Wright, as a non-partisan official, will
of course go no further. The objectors and Collector Wright are the only
parties to the proceedings, and they
alone have tbe power to appeal. Mr.
Wright will be relieved of all responsibility by the verdict of Mr. Justice
Drake.
Kaslo, B. O., May 10. -The Joe Martin convention here last eight failed to
materialize as the Slocan Lake delegates
oould not get here. The Government
candidates will be selected at a meeting
to be held in Sandon on Friday. Thers
is a strong feeling against putting another Kaslo man in tbe field as the two
candidates who are already ont belong to
this town. Mr. Kane's political umbilicus thereby promise to be nipped in
ihe bud. Mr. Green was given a certain
time to elect whether he would carry Joe
Martin's banner in the Slocan but he
has evidently declined.
B. G. IN LONDON.
Mr. Charles Plowman Tells of the Mining Market and Prospects.
Among the arrivals from the oast
yesterday was Mr, Charles Plowman
who has jnst returned from London, England, where he has spent the
past four months. Mr. Plowman was
one of the gentlemen interested In the
Bale of the Joker to Ernest Mansficd's
syndicate, aud iu fact first turned Mr.
Mansfield's attention to the Koot-
euays, being thereby indirectly responsible for bringing all the capital
into the country that Mr. Mansfield
has Mioivcdcd in interesting in British
Columbia properties.
"What with the war, the closing
down of the Hall Mines, LcRoi and
the War Eagle, the labor troubles anil
the unsettled political conditions,
British Columbia is not lu great favor
at present in Loudon," said Mr.
Plowman to the Minor. "But tbe undoubted wealth of the mineral resources of the country will yet bring
it prominently to the front and before
long capital will How this way. Of
that 1 have no doubt. I saw Mr.
Mansfield several times in Loudon and
he is doing wonders lu spite of the
well laid plans of Mr. Fleutot, the
manager of the Joker mine, to damn
the cou.itry and stop capital from Investing in it. Why this man goes so
far out of his way to endeavor to give
a black eye to everything here is beyond me. But he did It, and Investors
will give more attention to one
discouraging statement than to a
dozen encouraging ones,   The reports
of the great richness of the Joker
mine, however, will have thu effect
of inducing the capitalists interested
In it to send more money here. No
one seems to be uioro suucessful In obtaining capital than Mr. Mansfield,
and if there were no croaking Fleutota
his success would have been achieved
sooner. The first thing I heard on
arriving in London was that Fleutot
had been writing piles and piles of
letters to those interested in Cnnip
Mansfield warning thorn thnt everything there was a swindle or worse,
his own property included. However,
he had to change his tune regarding
the Joker later, aud issued a very
favorable report on it. The fact that
previous to the issue of this report,
and after all his misstatements, the
French syndicate bought all the outstanding shares in the Joker at a high
price, Indicates that Mr. Fleutot is
discredited, for, had a very email
part of what he said been believed,
there would have been no more money
turned this way, I understand that
machinery will be erected this summer to treat the Joker ore, and that
the whole system of development will
be changed,''
Mr. Plowman will make Nelson or
Kaslo his headquarters for the summer. He leaves for Camp Mansfield
today. Ho thinks Mr. Mansfield will
be out in about a mouth.
PLAYTHINGS."
So the English Papers Call Boer Delegates to the United states.
London, May 17���The afternoon papers here pay the scantiest attention to
the reception accorded the Boer delegates in New York. The Pull Mall
Gazette dubs them "Playthings of
American politicians" and the Evening Standard says: "Tlie proceedings
certainiy showed unfriendliness to
Great Britain, but no deeds will be
forthcoming to prove the sympathy of
of the United States. Had American
statesmen previously shown any hesi-
tation, President Krager's offer to
bribe tbem witli a protectorate would
have finally settled the matter.
NEW MARKET STAKES.

RATHER FLIMSY.
New York, May In. Mr. Wesson, oia
of the Boer envoys, in discussing the
abuse of the white flag by bis eountry
men, intimated that the reported abuse
of ths white flag took place largely in
the minds ot the English correspondents.
He cited two instances, however, showing that their statements had some
slight foundation in fact, due entirely to
a onrious error. Speaking ef a white
flag incident, in which a purty of Boers
were accused of firing upon a party ot
British* after the Boers had raised a
white flag, he said that a white jacket
was mistaken for a white flag. The
jacket was worn by a oleryman who suddenly rushed to the front, and his white
jacket was mistnken by the British for a
flag of trnoe. " Very often," said Mr.
Wessen, " the flag of the Orange Free
State is mistaken for a white Hag. The
colors are orange and white, and invariably after abattleflag has been through
a fow storms tbe orauge fades, leaving a
white field. This ia no doubt what tbe
English have some times taken for a
flag of truce. Charles li. Pierce, Consul
General of the Orange Free State, received the following cable from .Pretoria: " Messrs. Wessen, Fisher and
Welmarens: May justice and peace be
with you. (Hgd) Kruger "
CANADA'S ATTITUDE,
Montreal, May 10.��� Tee  Star's Lin-
don cable says:
"Alfred Dekin, Australian Federation
delegate from Victoria, in Paris Temps,
quotes Canada as against Mr. Chamber
bun s attitude t.rwarJs Australian Federation. Ho says the system of appeal
to the Privy Council has already caused considerable ilmoontont in Canada.
Chamberlain's decision to retain Australia's full right of appeal ia likely to be
the subject of a united Canadian-Australian constitutional agitation. He also suggests that the time is ooming
when Australia and Canada and the
other Federated Slates of the Empire
will demand for smaller nations, like Ireland, the same rights and the same law|
������ they themselves possess."

Let   us   have   peace,    Peace  in
British   Columbia    means    settled
government.    Give us  settled government,  and   mining development
will boom.     It is not stagnant now.
The   companies   in   operation   will
have   a   busy season, and   business
generally will be fairly good.    But
that is not all  that is  required.     If
we are to be confined to the operations   of   the    enterprises   already
established,        the       metalliferous
wealth of this Province will not be
developed    in   a   thousand   years.
None of us can afford to wait that
long.    We   need   new enterprises,
scores and hundreds of them;   we
need new capital, an indefinite multiplication of miners to earn wages,
and a gieatly increased sale of dry
goods, groceries, boots and shoes,
hardware,  drugs, and newspapers,
The new capital will not come in if
we  elect   Martins and Houstons to
the   next   Legislature.     They   are
demagogues.      They   are   all   for
agitation,   in   the   hope that something beneficial  to  themselves will
spring  out  of it.    We  want men
who  will  give   us  quiet,   earnest,
settled government, and thus bring
back the confidence   that   has been
lost.    What sensible  business man
in   Nelson   can possibly   take
other view of the situation?
"The policy of Mr, Cotton,"
says the B. C. Review, of London,
"as outlined in his recently published appeal to the electors of
B. C, is a very uninviting programme. Narrow and provincial,
it dangles a few petty advantages
before the electors in ons or two
districts where the late Minister of
Finance more especially desires to
ingratiate himself, but there is no
suggestion of broad progressive
policy for the whole Province in
general." Mr. Houston says he is
standing for this policy in the Nelson Riding.

The enemies of Mr. Mackintosh,
to injure his   chances   in   Rossland,
started a story to the   effect that he
was Investing   his   new   company's
capital in the adjoining  States, and
not    in    British     Columbia,       Mr.
Smith Curtis, who is   Mr.   Martin's
Minister of Mines, helped  to circulate this report.     It   was   published
in  Mr.   Houston's   paper,    and advanced as a reason why  Mr. Mackintosh   should   be   defealed.    Thai
gentleman,   however,   has   put   his
foot on the  falsehood   and   crushed
the life out of it.    At a recent meeting in Rossland he took occasion to
say that he had no mines   in   those
States, nor had he invested in them
a  dollar of his own   money or   the
money of any other person.    Thin
he made  a   neat turn   against   Mr.
Curtis, who, he said, was   horrified
at the thought of his investing in an
American mine, while he was himself
proposing to build   a  railroad   wilh
Canadian money to  feed   American
territory.     Mr. Houston, loo, is  in
favor of this railway,   but he chokes
nt the idea of a mining   investment.
He strains at a gnat, but takes  the
camel at a gulp.    Men of his  class
are not the   sort the  Province requires for its Legislature.
The diminished and discredited
followers of Mr. Cotton have appropriated to themselves the name
of Provincial Party. By way of
explanation The Greenwood Miner
relates the following story: "A
man down in Georgia was asked
what he would call his baby.
' Durned if I know,' he replied;
' we've used up most all the good
names we know of on the dawgs.' "
And so in this case, the good names
being already appropriated they fall
back on those of mongiel composition.       	
The Vancouver World says no
public man in Canada, during the
past half century, has been more
bitterly or maliciously assailed than
Mr. Joseph Martin. Like much
other stuff in The World, this is all
poppycock. There are a dozen
men in Canada whom Mr. Martin
himself has more bitterly and maliciously assailed than he is now or
ever has been. Among those who
know the gentleman, it will be an
impossible task to excite sympathy
for him on that score.

Until Mr. Fletcher became a candidate h�� had neither reason nor occasion to say whether or not he
was opposed to the Bight-Hour
law. There is really no occasion
now, as the law is an established
fact and therefore a dead issue; but
as Ihe public clamor challenges an
expression of his views on the question he comes out boldly and
���qtiarely and says what, he thinks.
He must be a man of curious mental construction who is not satisfied

The time has nrrivoil when all parties

THE   LEADING
Scotch    Whisky
With rogard to tho Eight-Hour Law, I
am opposed  to any change iu the lnwj
as it now stands.
Shorter hours for all olasses of labor
is no now idea, but in my opinion the
principle should be suoh ns to appeal to
all Sections of the Community ns being
not only a necessity and beneflcinl to all,
but iu keeping with the gonernl udvauce-
ment of our civilization.
I would ndvooats the amendment nnd
strict enforcement of the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, so as to more effectually protect the lives of workmen.
With regard to the Mineral Act: I
would endeavor to have certaiu sections
more dearly defined, for tho purpose of
avoiding litigation : and with regard to
oo-ownership, to introduce nu inexpensive aud speedy mode of mnkiug n oo-
owner benr his share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am in favor of on amendment to our
School Laws so ns to give Cities the control of the Schools in their midst.
1. The principle of eight hours constituting a legal day's work should bo
recognized nud strictly onforoed,
; 3. Steps should immediately _bo
taken through the proper ohannels to
piuviiiit. tie' immigration into this
oouutry of Chinese and Japanese laborers.
8. Two dollars nnd a half per day
should bo the minimum wnge of unskilled labor throughout the Province
on all government works.
4. A fair wago bill should be introduced requiring tbe payment of stand-
aid wages ou all works to which tho
Province contributes subsidies or aid
iu nny form.
6. The establishment of a labor
bureau under the direction of a Minister of the Crown, whose duty it shall
be among other things, to collect luhor
statistics, und to act as a mediator
between employers und workmen in
nil oases of aotunl or threatened
strikes with power to cnll and examine witnesses and oompel disclosuro
of all material faots in connection
with suoh disputes.
(i. I believe that hunk ronds should
be built and maintained by tho government and encouragement given to
miners to extend these roads. Such
work should be directed by competent
government engineors. Where truils
are required to single or small groups
oi claims rhe cost of such trails, if
bnilt by tbe claim owners ou the approval and under direction of a government inpseotor or engineer, shall
apply as  assessment  upon tbo claims.
