Viotoria, B. C, April ft.���Undeterred by the result of the Vnnoouver oonvention, and, perhaps, roused by it to
tbe necessity of vigorous action on bis
part, if he is to continue to administer
tbe  affairs of   the  Piovinoe, Premier
Mnrtin will almost  immediately	
menoe n systematic stump of the constituencies. This was practically hit
reply this morning when asked whal
would be the effect of the convention
on bis future courso. He stated unequivocally that he did not propose to
b3 infloeuoed in the least by the result
of the gathering, and that, failing snp-
port from the presB of the Provinoe, hi
proposed to take to the hustings himself and acquaint the people with bu
platform   aud polioy.
After an absence of several weeks
fiom the oity. during wbich be ha*
been engaged in an endeuvor to settle
the differences in tbe miniug country,
Hon. Smith-Curtis, Minister of Mines,
last night returned to tbo city aud to
his duties. He is jubilant over the
successful outcome of his trip, and all
the more so as the initial stages of bin
efforts to effeot a reconciliation between tbe miners and mine owner*
promised nothing but defeat.
Referring to the return of Hon.
Smith-Curtis from Rossland, tho Pre
niinr said thnt tbe effect of amicably
settling the matter and removing it
from tbe realm of politics wonld immeasurably strengthen the Government
in the upper country.
"Yon know," he explaiancd, "now
the Government always profits by such
a aoooessful outcome to any difficulty,
even when it is not responsible for the
result. Tbe effeot will be much greater
in this oase, where it was brought
about through the aotion of tho administration, who paid the expenses of
Smith, to whose assistance the Minister of Mines owes muoh in reaching n
basis of settlement."
I Your correspondent la credibly informed that Ralph Smith will not be n
oandidate for South Nanaimo at the
ooming elections. Owing to the de
mands made upon his time by biH
praotioe Dr. MoKeohnie will retire
from politlos and Mr. Smith will be n
candidate for Nanaimo.

Viotoria. B. a. April 9.-The Viotoria Oity Liberal-Conservative oc.n-
viintion, last night, decided to aooept
federal party lines in the approaching
Provincial contest, and a convention of
the party will be held two weeks from
now to select tho oandidntes who, an
Liberal-Conservatives, will seek election to tbe new Parliament of British
Colnmbtn. While taking this step,
however, the party or tbe association
standing for tbe party, qualifies its decision by an announcement that its
candidates looally will not bo pledged
to the support, in its entirety, of tho
Platform promulgated at tbe recent
New Westminster convention. With
���evrral pUnka of which thore is considerable dissatisfaction, it was on a
division of 6? to 41, after n long consideration of the subject from every
standpoint, that the decision for pnrtv
lines wan arrived at.but alter tho rider
as to platform responsibility, a suggestion that thn voioe of the meeting be
made unanimous was dissented from
by but four of the gentlemen who had

A   ROMANCE OF B. 0.
From Poddler to Fiunnce Minister.
The Vnnoouver Provinoe says In n recent artiole: "Some years ago a familiar figure about New Westminster
was a peddler named Walworth who
was well Hcqaaintad among certain
olaseos of people. Peddler Walworth
made' a more or less precarious livelihood by tbe salo from his paok made
to good citizens who wished to help
tho young man along.
Ho, however.did not oater altogether
to tho good people it is said, for bo
carried in his pack certain comforts
not usually included with the pins and
needles, shoo laces and buttons, red
handkerchiefs and paper oollars, rolled
plato rings and collar buttons, of a
peddler's stook iu trade. The sales of
theso particular articlos showed a larger margin of profit, however, and the
peddlor prospered accordingly. Later
on Peddler Walworth went to Nanaimo and there, after a year or so, the
peddler for somo reason dropped his
name of Walworth and since has oalled
himself Kyder,which it is alleged was
his father's patronymic, bnt dependent
sayeth not. Peddler Walworth, or
Ryder, ns he must henceforth lie called
remained several years longer a citizen of Nanaimo, still continuing to
pursue the dvooatiou for whicb ho
showed such a predilection.
Some two or three years ago Peddler
Walworth, or Ryder, changed " bis
abode to Comox without causing any
very great pang in tbe hearts of the
residents of Nanaimo wbo parted from
their fellow-citizen without any keen
regret being noticoable. In Oomox
Peddler Walworth was iii thy employ
of Simou Loiser until recently when
be opened a small, sbop with a little
stook iu trade which was made up of
uotions, buttons and strings similar to
the contents of the pack Peddler Wal-
wor'h UBod to tote round New Westminister.
'Some peoplo aro born great others
have greatness thrust upon tbem.' So
it was to be with Peddler Walworth
or Ryder, and nt Comox the goddess
Fortune sought nnd found ber favored
sou nnd suddenly greatness was thrust
upon the cist while peddler ao that he
staggered beneath the weight. He
hnd been oalled upon by Joseph Martin
to be Finanoe Ministor of British Columbia I
He is an undistinguished peddlir,
but he heard his Premier's call and
tbo Cabinet didn't bave to send to find
him. He chucked his job and joined
it and the job before bim now istopnt
his name on cheques no good before
he signed tbem. It is said tbnt when
Jen offered the portfolio of finanoe to
him tbe whilom peddler wns dubious
of his ability to fill the requirements
but the Pre.nier is said to have reassured bim, saying that all tbat would
be required of him was to sign
cheques, whereupon he aooepted tbe
position.
"It is the general impression that
Peddlor Walwo-th or Ryder is but a
joat warmer for "Billy" Molnnes. It
is known that so-ne months ago, just
prior to tbe government caucus ut
whioh Martin was tequested to leave
the Cabinet, that Martin and W. W.
B. Mclnnes met on the main street in
Nanaimo and Martin said in tbe presence of two other persons, 'In case I
should be called upon to form a Government oan I rely upon yon taking a
seat iu the Cabinet?' He was not oalled upon as he expected and therefore
did not ask Mr. Molnnes to take a
seat. Ho did no go directly to the
Lieutenant-Governor and say that if
he wero oalled upon to form a Government bo would ask Mr. W. W. B. Molnnes to join him.
In Nanaimo where tbe now Ftnauce
Minister is well known he has been
unmeroitolly jollied. In reply bs
Bald: 'Oh, well! It's good for throe
months salary auy way.' Such an
aooession of fortnno ns to be given at
one word a salary of $888.l)8ij per
month ovon for a short time might
well turn tho head of   the   ex-peddler,

WHARF
City Council Again Talks This
Somewhat Threshed
Out Question.
London, April 10.���li a. m.���Prepa-
ratctis are being made to hold Bloemfontein ngnnst n surprise. Lord Kitoho-
ner has beon given important duty, being responsible for tho protection of
railways, while Lord Roberts is waiting for remounts and winter clothing
for the troops, whose thin cotton khaki
uniforms and boots nro worn out. Lord
Roberts will probably for somo time
continue his operations of clearing the
Free Stnte of raiders preparatory to relieving Mafeking, for wbioh purpose
apparently tbo Eighth Division, now
ariving nt Cape Town, has beeu ordered to Kimberley.
Lady Sarah Wilon and other Mafeking correspondents send diaries of doings there, showing that the Boers
hnve tried by abandoning trenches to
lure tho boseiged ant into a ruined ambush. Fortunately, tho British engineers discovered tho mine, cut tbe wire
communication and unearthed the 15
pounds of dynamite and  war gelatine.
What the chanoes are for the advance
to Pratorin mny bo judged from the
fact that only from six to ten thousand
horses are ou the wny to the Oape, and
from tbe further faot tbnt tbe military
tailoring department only within the
last threo weeks began making woolen
uniforms. It is snid it will take at
least two mouths to provide 200,000
uniforms.
London, April ft. ���Tbo amazing activity of the Boers southeast and southwest of Bloemfontein oontinueB. The
Boer commands aro seemingly going
and ooming throngout a wide region as
they please,hut taking good care not to
throw themselves against bodies of tbe
British. The retirement of the Irish
Rifles from Rouxville to Aliwal, haves
General Brabnnt without communication with tbe British forces. He has
1.000 to 3,000 Colonials holding a fine
defensive position,but be is apparently
vested so far ub London knowB. Telegraphic and railroad communications
with Bloemfontein are kopt np as usual, but nothing comes throngh for publio consumption.
London, April ft.���The Bloemfontein
correspondent of th . Daily Telegraph,
telegiaphiug Sunday, savs:
"The railway and telegraph nre
working well. Works and trcnoheB
have been prepared in suitable positions around Bloemfontein. 1'be
greatest vigilance is exercised. Some
of tbe troops sleep in the trenohes.
"Confirmation has beeu received of
the report that the Boers are in laager
in coiiBiderablo numbers, with guns,
at Dinkersport, 18 miles southeast. The
British scouts repoit another body still
closer. The Foer patrols have grown
very bold, venturing much nearer our
tents."
London, April 10.���The Bloemfontein correspondent of The Times says:
"The captured Boers agreed that
only 60 men remained unwounded out
of the whole British column captured
at Reddersburg.
"Gen. Gatucro and his Btaff were
fired at Irom enclosures while they
temporarily ociupied Reddersburg.
"Considerable movements of troops
hnvo ocenrred here wilh the objeot of
prevouting sunrise."
Continued uo Fourth Page,
London, April 10.��� The Timo* publishes tbe following from Wepener,
dnted Sunday. 8th:
"The Wepener garrison is completely
isolated. However, the lines are enormously strong and thn foice is fully
provisioned.

Kiiisdurdt was formally re- inne.ved to
Oape Colony April 1st, amidst cheers
of assembled troops. A huge number
of insurgent colonists, including many
of their leaders, are now imprisoned
hero. Col. Drnry'a column, including
thu West Australian and Canadian
Mounted Rifles and Artillery, left here
yesterday for De Aar.
Maseru, Saturday, April 7.���Tba
Boers, who were massed last week near
Ladyaudt to tbe number of I (1,000, after
seizing Thaba N'obn nnd the Modder
River water works, broke up into
dtrong divisions and they are now raiding in the south of the Free State nnd
occupying the small towns wbioh were
evaouated by the British. The Boers'
polioy seems to be to make rapid movements with little transport, looting
lOuglish storekeepers freely and cutting
communications of tbe British forces.
General Brabant's Colonials are
mostly at Wepeuei. Tbey are a np'en-
did force, capable of great striking
power,' and used to oonntry riding and
are abie to deal roughly with tbe Boer
commandos now roaming about the
counry.
A squadron of Brabant's Horse captured 400 rifles near Wepener. His
outposts are reported to be in touob
witb tbe Boers and a fight ia regarded
���s imminent.
Persistent reports are being oiro.nl:-.!-
>d tbat the Boeis are preparing to retake the British position at Wepener,
and thus to secure entranoe into Basntoland. Snob an attempt will be resisted hy tbe Basntoland government,
which is believed to have mado every
preparation. Meanwhile tbe approaches of tbe armies to Basntoland produces
much excitement among the natives,
necessitating the utmost vigilance on
the part of the local officials.

THE LIBERAL OONVENTION.
Nelson Delegates Returning Toll What
They Think of It.
Nelson delegates to the somewhat
tempestuous Liberal oonvention held
it Vancouver Inst week are gradually
returning to the city, and those wbo
have as yet put in an appearance show
no signs of having shared any of tbe
hardships encountered by tbe doors of
the oonvention hall. Of tbe row iteolf
they bnve little to say beyond what
has already been reported in Tbe Miner. The immediate cause of the termination of tbe convontion without
tbe transaction of any business was
this: Dnvies moved a vote of want of
confidence ln Martin, Martin claimed
it was out of order, tbe chairman
ruled it waa in order, Martin appealed
to tbe meeting against tbe decision of
the chair ai.d tbo Martin men, fearing
that the ruling would be susttalned,
would not let tbe meeting vote on tbo
appeal. Tbere was nothing left to be
done but to adjourn. Tbe Nelson delegation look upon the convention as
accomplishing the defeat of Martin as
leader of the Liberals of the Province
but tbat tbe party is decided on the
qnestion. Tbe aotion of the party is
not necessarily opposed to the introduction of party politics in tbe forthcoming eleotions, hut they do objeot to
tbe foisting of an unwelcome leader on
them by the lientenant governor.
Probably with a leader of their choice
the paity oonld go tbe contest with a
solid opposition to th) Conservatives.
Now they simply do not know wbere
they are at.    And nobody else does.
Port Arthur, Ont., April 0.���Indian
Agent Hedder has a letter from Long
Lake reporting tho murder tbere of
Chief Towon and Makgejooupwoay-
kangi of tne Ojibbowa tribe,the chief's
bend being chopped from his body
with nu axe. Towen's family allege
that tho obief flint killed Makgejecnp-
weaykangi then committed suicide.
However, the supposition is that
Towen's wife slaughtered him.
Last night's meotintr of the City
Counoil was not pnrticnlaily exciting
The only debate was on the wharf
question, the matter of discussion this
time being on the advisability of providing against the difficulty to br
encountered in high water by extend
ing tbe bridge nt street level ns far as
tbe saw mill wharf. After talking
about it u long time it was decided
to have the Oity Engineer report on
the last.
The meeting was somewhat delayed
in starting on account of tbe uldermen
being Bomewhat dilatory in putting in
on appearauoe. The mayor was on
time, and it was somo time later that
Alderman Arthur and Hull turnod up.
About half an hour later Aldermen
Irvine and Morrison dropped in and
tho mnyor called the meeting to order
The minutes of the last adjourned and
speoial meetings were read and np
proved.
The public works commit tie report,
pd that it had nothing to report and
tbe finanoe comwi tee bad n 1 m, list of
approved aocounts and checks weie ordered to be issned to covor the different amounts.
The speoial conmittec on fire hose
and fire dopartme t asked for another
week in wbiob to report and leave wns
granted.
The mnyor reported that he was still
negotiating towards the porohaso of
the two lots immediately bebind tbe
present hall.
Sixteen musicians applied for a
grant of $00 n month for whioh tbey
would orgnnize a brass band and give
their services gratuitously. H.vir Stein-
er headed the list. The appli��nticn
was referred to the board of  works.
W. O. McLean & Oo. stated that
they would extend the retention wall
on Silica Street at the same price ns
they tendered for the wall they aie
now bnildiug ou   Stnnley Street.
As the Stanley Street woik is being
done at a slightly higher figure than
McLean & Co. have already done work
on Silica Street, and it wns decided to
have them finish the Silica Street work
at tbe old prion, or tenders will bo culled for.
Alderman Irvine urged that some
provision be mnde at the city wharf
for meeting the trouble encountered by
high water. Work was already ordered
to be done on tbo wharf, and by spend
ing $1200 or fo moro the wharf could
be extended to provide for meeting tbe
trouble that will he encountered by
boats landing at high water on the
shore.
Alderman Arthnr thought that if the
city would do any more at||the whnrf
it should revert to the original plans
and bnild a new wbnrf entirely.
| The mayor said thnt with the warehouses reoently ericted bouts would
not be able to disohnrgo and load
freight ia high wafer. He thought
something would have to bo done.
Aid. Hall was not in favor of patching
up tbe wharf. They shonld erect a
new one according to the old plans.
The mayor pointed out that by extending tbe   land cud across the street
it wonld lie an improvement that oonld
be ntilized if tho original pluus were
ever carried ont. That work, together
with replanting, would cost nbont
$2,500.
Aldermen Arthur and Hall stuck out
for a brand new wharf, while Alderman Irvine favored immediate attention to providing something for high
water and opposed the erection nf a
now wharf simply because the oily
conld not nfford it. Aldermnn Morrison agreed with him. The new part
could   bo in.ili on the sumu plans ns it
was proposed to build the new wharf,
Tho same contentions were dished
up several times in different forms nnd
some time was occupied in desultory
discussion, after which tho City Kn-
giueot was instructed to icport upon
the cost of the proponed work, whieh
means extending it 8S5 feet to the
grade of the Rlreet.
Aldermnn Hall moved   that the soli
Walk he laid on the south side of   Mill
Street 200   feet from Cedar.    The mat
ter wuh referred to tlio works commit-
too.
Tho mnyor suggested the neoessity of
sidowalks on Hull, between Mill and
Carbonate. This also went to the
bonrd of works.
The city owns a liable somewhere
ou the Hull Mines road and the mayor
stated that he had been offered $J80 for
it. Aldoruian Irvine moved that the
mayor bo empowered to soil it and thnt
tenders bo cnlled for the erection of a
new stable on the city's lots near the
eleotrio light Stable, A wandering
discussion on this brought the aldermen around to the gmlingo question
nnd thn mayor suggested that a crematory bo emoted at once for thn destruction of the garlmge. Tho City Engineer stated that a plant would cost
in tho neighborhood of $8,600. A committee composed of the mnyor and Aldermen Irvine and Arthur were np
pointod to report upon the mutter.
Alderman Irvine suggested soveral
cemetery improvements, to the road
leading to it, to the lots aud roads in
it, and to tho price of lots, which be
thought should be raised to produce a
revenue sufficient to keop the oemcterv
in order. This was referted to the
board of works.
The mayor brought up tho qnestion
of expert icpurts on tho electrio light
und water plants. He said that Mr.
R. C. Ribtet, of Kelson, wiib a very
good water man. He was assistant
consulting engineer when the Spokam
water works were installed. It was
decided that W. O. Cheney, of Oregon
Oity, Oregon, won Id be employed ns
an expert on the electrio light plant nl
$il a day and Mr. Riblet on water
powor nt $T> a day.
Dr. Arthur wanted the bylaw regarding tbe impounding of chicken)'
enforced. Bylaw No. 4 of the citj
provides for impounding of various
things, including poultry, "or one or
more ot them." The difficulty wie
looked upon as insurmountable.
A few other smnll mutters wero dis
cussed and the council adjourned.

Ottawn, April ft.���Iu tho House today a bill to incorporate the Oomox
ind Capo Scott Railway ou Vancouver
Island, Mr. Mclnnes, in committee,
moved that n clause be inserted to prevent the einbployment of Chinese on
the railway, nt u ponalty of $5 per day
for each day any Chinese person is in
tho eniplov. He snid thut in I8ftS such
. -1:11 ���.- ��� - - were being included in all railway hills passed by the legislature of
British Columbia.
The reason why tho promotors came
ro Ottawa for this chatter was to evade
this clause. Mr. Morris, who had
���h.irgc of the bill, was as much opposed to Ohinese being admitted iuto
Canada as Mr. Mclnnes, but he said
tbsre was no use playing with the
question, t It was uot constitutional to
insert such a clause. If the Hritish
Cnlnmbin legislature put them in, Ottawa would hnve to throw them out.
If Ottawa did not, the result would bo
the same, as such legislation was ultra
vires. The Dominion Oovorument was
to bring down a bill tbis session
dealing with tbo whole question of
Ohinese, and that would bo the proper
time to deal with tho matter. Tbo
nonunion could not legislate against
.nie man and in favor of another ou the
same  snbjeot.
Dr. Sproule hold that if the Chinese
were admitted, then thoir means of
obtaining a Inolihond should not be
taken away fiom them. Messrs. Oliver
and Puttee favored the amondment.
Sir Wilfrid Lauiier said that tbere
ought to be a very good reason before
tbe decision of the railway committee
could be npheld, as this matter hnd
I oon carefully considered by the com-
���nit tee.
There was also a groat deal to be
Mid in favor of what Mr. Morrison
had said ou the constitutional point.
Rut in the opinion of the Prime Minis! ter, Dr. Sproulo's view was irresistible.
If the Chinese were to |bo admitted,
then they shonld uot bo deprived of
earning a livelihood. The Government
intended dealing witb Chinese immigration this session. Tbo bill passed
Iho committee. On a third r -ailing of
the bill Mr. Mclnnes moved his Chi-
nesu amendment, which was lost by ��
majority against of 112.

THE UOVKKNOK'S PET BEAR.
Nearly three hundred delegates,
prominent members of the Liberal
putty from nil sections of tho Province, met in convention at Vnncouvor
last Thursday, remained in sesiou for
two days, and adjourned without
transacting any business or passing
even oue resolution. That is something unique iu political experience.
A dozen years ago or so Manitoba enjoyed the reputation of being the freak
Province Of tbe Dominion; that distinction has since passed to Hritish
Columbia. It is only but fair to hasten
to say, howevor, that although the
convention transacted no business it
certainly accomplished some good.
It began wrong. It was called by
the Executivoof the Vancouver Association, a purely local body, without
right nr authority of any kind to speak
for the Liberals cf the Proviuce.
There is a Proviucial Asociation, tbe
Executive of wbich declined to cull a
Provincial convention. The Vancouver Executive usurped its place. It did
this because it was nudor the influence of Mr. Martin, and Mr. Martin
wiib exceedingly desirous of having it
uppeur that lie had tbe endorsation of
the Liberals of the Province in tbe
elections which he expects to pull off
seme time next June. As be employed
the local organisation at Vancouver,
it became necesiary to rebuke the
presumption of both Mr. Martin and
his tools. There were two ways in
which to do this; either to ignore tbe
so called convention, or to appear in
force and have it declared iu a manner that could not be mistaken that
the l.tln ruin of tbe Province did not
purpose to rerognise Mr. Martin as
their leader. They ohoso the latter,
and although ut a disadvantage they
gathered in sufficient numbers to save
the gcod name of tbe party from being compromised', The design of Mr.
Martin and his friends was foiled;
bet nothing further was done, aud the
convention broke up in disorder.
Tbe proverbial historical search
will fail to discover a parallel to this
very singular affair. There have
been instances of meu scheming for
the leadership of a purty, but never
before was there a case of one attempting tn capture it by storm and in
such gross fashion. But it was Mr.
Mnrtin all over. He is inonrably hurt
by Ins failure, us be deserves to be.
He would be much better off if tbe
��� ��� nv.-in ii n hnd not been culled. Instead of conciliating opposition, he
hns embittered what there was and
stirred up much that is fresh. He bas
a leotlon of tbo Liborals behind him,
by ull odd Is the least reputable and influential, bnt bus cut himself off from
all other elements of the electorate.
He has managed very badly, bnt not
WOtie than be has done all though bis
political career. There are some who
profess lo nilmiie his courage. He
has the courage of the bully, and can
oonceive of no other. It is not iu bis
nature. What he cannot achieve by
bullying he cunnot uchievo at all. That
form of ooorage appeals to tbe admiration of the vnlgar only. He tried
to bully the Liberals of Hritish Columbia,and has come to grief over it. He
still holds the Pruiiership, however,
jnd be is uot tho man to give it up
until taken from him by force. The
programme outlined by himself in his
Victoria speech doubtless stands yet.
He will cling to ollice and go to the
country in .Inno next. Meantime tbe
Province looks on in amazement, and
with not ii little trepidation. With a
desperate and reckless man as Premier,
and with a Finance Minister picked
up olT the streot and of whom no one
has the least knowledge, the prospeot
for the next two or threo months is
anything but assuring.
"It is evident that Martinis living
iu Hritish Columbia tho same demagogic methods that bu used in Manitoba some tun or twelve years ago,
and which,though temporarily successful,ultimately resulted in his complete
collapse iu tho latter Province and led
him to seek now fields for the exercise
of his peculiar talents. Thu people of
tho Coast cities uru naturally anxious
to seonro more direct communication
with tbo Boundary Creek district ih.ni
at presont exists, and tbo reference to
a Uovoriniiont line from the Const iB
merely a vote-Outgoing device. If such
a line is praulical, at anything like
reasonable cost, and if it presented n
reasonable certainty of securing n pny-
iug trnlllc it. is not likely that the C.
PR. would in ii.lie to build It. or
failing thut Oompany, thut others
would uuderlake the work r.B a business proposition. When Martin be-
onmo Atti.rnoy-Genernl of Hiitish Columbia, there was a contract in el'lt-
enoe with Mackenzie, Mann & Co., for
the buildiug of this line,but lie induced his colleagues to repudiate tlio arrangement. The idea of Martin appointing an independent commission
is amusing to those who know his
character nnd hia methods. The Frailer River bridge is anothoi volucutch-
iug proposition.
"The participation of Martin In public nll'aiis iu Hritish Columbia is a
standing menace to the reasonable
rights of capital invested in IhutProv-
nice.and we have no hesitation in say-
iug that until tho people there exprese
clearly their want of confidence in
him und their determination not to
allow him to dominate Provincial politics it will be unwise for anyone to
invest a dollar in any enterprise which
may bo affected by legislation by the
British Columbia Legislature, or by
the executive acts of the Provincial
Government. The present is undoubtedly a time when the better elements
of both parties should unite to resoue
tbe Province from the rulo of a demagogue and a w i eel, i r, w I hi has no regard
for private or public rights whioh moy
stand in his way,and one of whose first
offloial aots when he became Attorney-
General of Manitoba was to fotce
through the Legislature n incisure
cancelling contracts legally entered into by the preceding Government, and
taking away fiom the injured contractors the right of appeal to the courts to
deoide whether tbey were entitled
to damages. The slop from such legislation to repudiation of the public
debt, or in faot anything of a similarly outrageous nature, is a very abort
one.''

Put us to the test.
" In tbe selection of officers, I say
withont hesitation thut, other tilings
being equal, 1 am prepared to givo tbe
preference to friends of my own
party." So declared Dr. Borden, Minister of Militia, when addressing the
House a few days ago. More could
not bo said of any service in whiob
political appointments and promotions
are tbe rule. It is tbe first time a
(Junadian Minister bus bad tbe hardihood to suggest and defend tho introduction of politics into the Militia
service. Dr. Borden may bo an estimable privato gentleman, but be has
convicted himself out of his own
mouth of his outire unfitness for the
publio position he now holds.
We do not know why Mr. Martin
should wait for tho elections and tbe
mooting of tbe Legislature before beginning thnt railway into tbe Interior.
Suoli 11 trifle as Legislative authorisation should not bo allowed to stand in
the way of so great a mnn, and we are
sore that Mr. Ryder could easily obtain
the money. All that he would require
to do would be to presont liis credentials in London, when capitalists
wonld fall at bis feet mrl beg bim to
oommand their cheque books.
We print elsewhere n sketch of tbe
oareer of Mr. Martin's FiDouca Minister, Mr. Ryder, token from The Vancouver Province. There is nothing discreditable in the story,the strange part
of it being that such a person suddenly finds himself a Cabinet Minister.
Only for the modern nir to it, we
could imagine that it is taken from
the Arabian Nights.

made out our list of llio artioles which
WO required mill decided    to gc menial
town and  purohnso   same.    As   I   wns
going nround town ulouo   1   noticed 1
had a shadow following my every step
���II day long/and,   as  I bail  considerable money ou   my   person, I   booanie
snspioious   as   to who   tho   individual
was that was following me.   Upon enquiry 1 found out to  my   surprisn nud

PROTEST.
Editor of The Nelson Miner:
As I have some oomplaiuts of n seri-
ins naturo to make known, whioh I
un aware will be ft benefit, to your
town aud Ihe publio at large" I take
ho liberty of asking spaoe in your
;aloable oolumiis to make my griev-
moe known. On the Oth inst. there
ippeared in tho Nolson Tribune a oom-
ilaint to the effect that the city an-
horities are making an effort to put a
<top to a business that is worked to
?ood advantage by initerant peddlers'
vho are assisted by two or three men
vho claim to be buBines men, resi-
:ent3 in Nelson. This man sells lades wares and jewelry by taking out a
.leddler's license. Now I have been in
he Province for 15 years and nm
known everywhere as one of the most
legitimate business men in the ooon-
,ry and I defy the writer of tho arti-
���le to oarry a belter reputation thau
[ do as an honest and legitimate business man. Now I have been to Nolson
oany times when I was obliged to
jass through thnt woy ond I will give
flOO to any charitable institution for
my proof that I hove sold goods in
Nelson contarry to  law.    On   tbe   1st
nstnnt I received a telegram at Gran-
Crook from Mr. H. Epstein, who la in-
-erestod with me in the hotel business at Phoenix, to meet bim at Nel-
iou on the 4th instant in order to pur-
:hase our furniture, oarpets nnd other
ueeosBaries for onr hotel. I also had in
dew the adoption of that beautful lit-
Ie bleck-eyejj baby  that is  fatherless

"Awfol anxiety was felt, for the
widow of tho hi nvo Genernl liuroham
of Mabias, Me . wnen the doctors said
she oonld not live till morniug" writes
Mrs. S. H. Linoolii, who attended her
that fearful .light. "All thought she
must soon die from Pnonmouiu, bnt
she begged for Dr. King's Now Dis
covery, Baying it had more than once
saved her life, mid had cured hor of
Oousuuiption. After three smnll doses
she slept easily I all night, and its
further use completely oured her."

THE
Debilitated  Man
In the treatment of those
nervous disorders of men,
young and old, which result from the abuse of some
law of nature, early indiscretions, later excesses, dissipations, etc.,there is much
to be considered. The
subject is deeper than most
physicians think it. One
thing is certain, DRUGS
ONLY STIMULATE.
They do not tone or
strengthen. It is just like
taking aglass of whiskey
to temporarily relieve the
mental torture of some financial or family trouble.
I soon saw drugs were not
i/iviiiL' my patients satisfaction, and went to work experinientinrr,
just as a business man does if he wishes to change some condition of his affairs whicli are not proving profitable. The first
thing I discovered was that the weakness was local. For proper
results a remedy had to be found which would build up the whole
organism. I knew that I should TREAT CAUSE, NOT EFFECT,
and to meet this demand I invented a portable chain battery,
which developed into my present famous
Dr. Sanden Electric Belt
with attachment for men. This appliance is a model home self-
treatment. It generates the proper amount of ELECTRICITY
in the proper way. It is made especially for weak men. You
wear it all night from 6o to 90 days. It cures while you sleep.
