House Congratulates Queen
On Near End of the
War.
In His Address Laurier Pays
Canadians a Glowing
Tribute.
Bourassa Opposes Motion and
Is Greeted With Storm
of Hisses.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINEII.)
Ottawa, Out., June 8���The House of
I:.miliums today, on motion of Sir
Wilfred Laurier, adopted an address
to the Queen, congratulating Her Majesty on the .-11>|��i nn, iiinj; termination
of the wnr in South Africa.
There is hut one i,pinion on the extraordinary and lidiculous position
which Mi.Iloiuassa took In the deliate.
He stood alone nnd well deserved the
casligation administered to him hy Mr.
Charlton aud tho Premier,
When the House met Sir Wilfred
lime to move the following address.
"To Ihe Queen's Most Kxccllenl Majesty: Most Gracious Sovereign. We,
your Majesty's dutiful and loyal subjects, of the Senate and House of Commons of Canada, in Parliament assein
hied, desire to oiler to Your Majesty
our heartfelt congratulations on the
approaching termination or ihe war in
Sinn h Africa, as foreshadowed hy the
recent successes, culminating in the
fall of Pretoria, which have attended
the British arms.
"The feeling of pride and satisfaction,
���with which we hail every tresh nddi
tion to the long nnd glorious roll of
deeds wrought hy British valour nnd
resource, Is enhanced ou the present
occasion hy the proud consciousness
that, through the active co-operation
of her sons in the battle-field, Canada
is entitled to shine in a new and spec
ial manlier in tlie joy ot the present
triumph.
"We rejoice that the conflict, now
happily drawing to a close, will
result in the removal of those
disabilities       under    which      many
of our fellow subjects have labored so
long, and we cannot doubt I hat the
extension of Your Majesty's gracious
rule over the whole of South Africa
will be attended by those blessings
which tlow   from wise  and beneficent
administrations of just   and   equal
laws."
"We pray thnt for your peoples'
sail,-, the blessings of Your Majesty's
reign may long be prolonged."
ln addressing himself to the House,
the Prime Minister spoke as follow!I
"The language of this address seems
to me to be sufficiently explicit, but 1
have a few observations lo offer in
support of it. We subjects, of all
races and origins in all parti of the
world, are Inspired with a sentiment
of exalted and chivalrous devotion to
the person of Her Most (Irncious Majesty.
"Thin devotion is not the result of
any maudlin sentimentality, but
arises from the fact that the Qneen 0.
the ninny lands whieli constitute the
Umpire, Is certainly the licst sovereign
Knglaud has ever had, and probably
the best that ever ruled in any laud.
Since war im ahhonent to the delicate
natnro of woman, we mny safely assume, and indeed we know, thnt the
present war has neen particularly psin-
fnl to  Her   Majesty     She  bsd   Imp sl
lugs nnd of bloodshed. It came with
altering periods of reverses and sno-
cesHns, but Sirs, happily peace ia now
within sight. Troops of Her Majesty
aro now in Pretorin nud the British
flag, to ns an omtleui of liberty, is
floating over the public buildings in
that far famed oity.  (Obeers.)
"This happy result is due above all to
that flue soldier who has proved
liini: ell a great general and who on
this occasion has, ns never before,
raised himself to tbe greatest expectations thnt tbe people of the Kmpiie,
had maintained of bim. (Cheers)
Lord Roberts is a great lender.of whom
each soldier can say, as soldiers of
Napoleon said at Austerlitz: 'He won
battles uot so mu.-li by making use of
our weapons as by making use of our
legs.'
"British victories are due to the fine
character and solid qualities of
the troops who, under the command
of the victorious General, have proved
themselves ready for every emergency,
ready to do everything that was expected of them, ready and anxious to
do their duty to the Empire. In this,
we may remark with pardonable
pride that, on more than one occasion,
when the fate of the battle was trembling in the scales of Destiny, the balance was turned in favor of the British
arms, and the victory decided hy the
dash of our Canadian soldiers, who
proved that, though many years have
passed since lust they were called
upon to take the field against a foe,
they are yet worthy of the races
from which they have sprung, and
that the blood which courses   through

The following is from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer of June 6 an
fers to Col. Frank It. Miles uf Unite, Molilalia:
Last June, having reali/.ed his rich copper discoveries, he went as fur
east as Boston to interest capitul in their development, lu this he wus
temporarily disappointed, owing to the timidity of capitalists regarding
investment in Canadian mining properties under the present system of
Government, and the fact that many of the copper claims had been
bonded by the Standard Ull Company. Kef inning iu September, ho
learned I hat his men had iu the me,ml line made much better discoveries
on American soil. luside of three weeks, he was again on his way I-!,i -i.
visiting a number of leading cities on the wny.
"With all Ihe mineral developments," said Col. Miles, "nnd nil Ihe
mineral on the Canadian side of the boundary line, I cannot under the
present Orders in Council, interest capital in Ihe work on thnt side.
Fortunately for us, the deposits of copper that have been so much talked of are in American   territory,    When I discovered  these  properties
on the American side It took me but a short time to Interest nil the
capital necessary for their development.    1 closed the deal in New York

THE LAST WORD.
represent him correctly, there is no
man in the Province who better understands all the conditions more or
less affecting the labor question.
We would not think of disputing
his opinion of a year and a half ago,
that an eight-hour law would be
premature; that the conditions were
not ripe for it. Very likely they
were not; but how, then, did Mr.
Smith, a lew days afterwards, prevail upon himselt to assist not only
in passing such a law, but in smuggling it through the Legislature and
springing it on the country without
a moment's notice ? The law may
have been premature, but in itself
there was nothing of an objection-
nble nature. An eight-hour day
under ground is probably quite long
enough, and if the miners thought
so they were entirely justified in asking for it. But why should Mr.
Ralph Smith assist in the trick of
concealment to get it passed? Is
he, notwithstanding all the creditable things said of bim, merely a
politician of common clay like the
rest of them, willing to let his opinions go when there is a party end
to gain? A labor leader of that
kind will not hesitate to sacrifice
his followers, if put to the temptation under party stress.
It is risky work to trust the best
of these political labor leaders. The
cause of labor is safer in the hands
of an old and tried historical party
like the Conservatives, as experience
has often taught and, we suppose,
will continue to teach to the end of
time without indelibly impressing
its lesson. The Miner would sooner
trust Mr. Fletcher, with the traditions of his party to keep him in
check than any professional like
Mr. Ralph Smith.
fore many learned that Buller was
given an impossible task. Nttr did
his difficulties disappear with1 the relief of I.adysmith. He has had hard
work ahead of him constantly, Slow
work, work that did not show. He
will come out of it perhaps without
any display of fireworks, but Gen.
Buller is one of the heroes of the
Boer war notwithstanding.
VOTE  THUS:
Go out and vote for Mr. Fletcher.
We do not say now that he is a
better man than Or. Hall, or a better man than Mr. Houston; both of
these candidates may be better
looking, and more learned and
pious and temperate. We do not
ask any one to vote for Mr. Fletcher
on his own account. It is the
Province we have to consider, not
any individual. The Province wants
steady, settled, progressive govern
ment, government that will restore
confidence to the people here and
through them to all the outside
world that takes an interest in British Columbia. The election of Mr.
Fletcher will do more towards this
end than would that of either ol the
candidates opposed to him. If we
were to print words enough to cover
a sheet as large as the Kootenays,
we could not say more than this.
Therefore, go  out   and  vote  for
Fletcher.
THE   RISKY   PROFESSIONAL
Earlier in the campaign it would
have been interesting to many of
the electors in Nelson if they had
been told of the things Mr. liberts
spoke of at Nanaimo the other day
He let the people there into a
secret. When the suggestion of
an eight-hour day was first made to
the Mining Committee, of which he
was a member, it was strongly
opposed by Mr, Ralph Smith, who
maintained that the time was not
yet ripe for the introduction of such
a law, It was doubtless largely
owing to Mr. Smith's attitude that
the measure was dropped at that
time. Hut then came Mr. Hume's
by-election in Nelson. It was very
necessary that Mr. Hume should be
successful, for defeat meant the defeat of ihe Government. Mr. Semlin was nut firmly enough seated to
withstand the loss of one of his
Ministers. It was a critical occasion, and the gentleman in Montana
knew it���that line labor leader who
talks so lightly of rifles. He got al
Mr. Wilks, and Mr. Wilks got at
Mr. Hume. The latter would
promise anything that got him
votes, and he promised Mr. Wilks
nnd, through Mr. Wilks, Mr.
Boyce of Montana, that he would
trade an eight-hour day for the
votes of the miners.
Moot of the story is old, but the
portion of it related of Mr, Ralph
Smith by Mr. Eberts is new and
decidedly interesting,   If his friends

Stability of Government-
Observance of our Constitution-
A cable yesterday said that Mr.
Hollis, a United States Consul, visited the Transvaal and conveyed
friendly greetings to Kruger, with
an earnest entreaty that he sue for
terms of peace. The conduct of
the American people throughout
this Boer war has not been as
admirable as it might, or as gracious as one might expect, remembering the recent trouble with
Spain; but there has never been the
least reason to suspect the perfect
friendliness of the Administration.
When Secretary Hay instructed
Ambassador Choate to tender to
the British Foreign Minister the
good offices of the United States in
restoring peace with the Transvaal,
The Miner ventured the opinion
that between London and Washington there was an understanding
as to this offer of intervention, and
other events and disclosures went
to confirm the suspicion. We venture the opinion again that there is
a similar underslanding with respect
to the mission of Mr. Hollis. Mr.
Kruger may want a little urging to
get down on his knees, and for
many reasons Great Britain would
prefer that it came from a non-
European Power.

The Miner takes upon itself to
make an appeal to all the candidates
alike. One of them will be elected,
and his friends will no doubt desire
to celebrate. Whichever it is, will
he kindly request those unearthly
steam whistles to keep quiet? Nelson is one of the healthiest places
on earth; but we are subject to the
infirmities of nature, and the sick
we have always with us. The town
is low down between the mountains,
and a little noise sounds loud. Let
us consider the patients in the hospitals and in the private homes.
There are many ways to celebrate
without making night hideous with
the shrieking of shrill or coarse-
throated steam whistles. May we
hope this appeal will commend itself to the good judgment of the
the candidates and their friends ?

An exchange is asking what Buller has been doing while Roberts

question does General Buller great
injustice. When he was sent into

To the Electors of the Nelson
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District:
'.bdilkmun���As the nominee of tho
Conservative party I beg to offer myself
ns a oandidate at the ooming general
eleotion to represent yon in tho Legislative Assembly of this Province.
The time has arrived when all parties
are fully alive to the faot that the future
welfare of onr Provinoe iIootiiuiIh a
Bound, fair and honest business administration aud tbat any great popular
Party must appeal to other and
higher considerations than those of individual fear of loss, or hope of gain.
I oonBider it the duty of every member
eleoted, to be n Provinoinlist to the ex-
lent of the best interests ot the Province
lirst, last and always, aud to support all
good legislation with that objeot iu view
In Baking you for your support, I will
Btatethatl am opposed to hasty legislation of any kind, hut particularly with
respect to our Mining Laws, as tending
to jeopardize business interests aud to divert oapital: for instance, twioe the Legislature has passed Alien Exclusion
Laws and they are now for the second
time Beeking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief.and damage.
With regard to the Eight-Honr Law, I
am opposed to any chnuge in tbe law
as it now stands. Shorter hourB for all
classes of labor is no new idea, but in
my opinion the principle should be such
as to appeal to all Sectious of the Community as being not only a uecesaily nnd
beneficial to all, but iu keeping with the
general advance ment ot onr civilization.
I wonld advocate the amendment nnd
strict enforcement ot Ihe Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, bo aa to more effectually protect the lives ot workmen
With regard to the Mineral Act: I
would endeavor to have certain sections
more clearly defined, for tbe purpose of
avoiding litigation ; and with regard to
co-ownership, to introduce au inexpensive and Bpoedy mode of mnkiug a oo-
ownerbear his share of assessment or
relinquish hia interest,
I am in favor of an amendment to our
School Laws so as to give Cities the control of the Schools in their midst.
A fair Rediatribntion Aot should be
passed as soon as possible.
I would advocate the bringing into
force of the Ton-en's Aot, provided it is
made optional ; ns the oost in a great
many cases will be excessive and ont of
all proportion to any benefit to be derived,
I wonld urge the speedy construction
of a Court Houbo iu Nelson, eqnnl to
the requirements ot this district,
I would Btrongly advocate increased
Grants for 1 loads, Trails and Bridges
wherever such will upbuild and develope
onr Provinoe, more especially in the
Miuing Districts, and all such expenditure to be placed in capable and experienced hands to be dealt with in a
eyBtematio way.
Our undeveloped natural resources
should receive more attention, nnd be
more widely advertised in order to attract
oapital.
With regard to cheap foreigu labor 1
believe, where the remedy is an Imperial
matter, in view of the Btand our Proviuce
nud Country has taken in the present wnr
giving both lives nud money, the desired
end oan ho gained if properly sough!,
without bringiug about a Bcrious misun-
dorBtanding with the Dominion Government and entailing deplorable agitation
as we require peace and prosperity in our
midst,
I am opposed to any clique or (action
of politioal agitators whose principle aim
is to embarrass and retard tbe business
of the Provinoe for purely personal ad
vancement.
I strongly condemn the notions of the
Lient-Governor ns being an invasion of
the prinoiple of responsible government
and a misuse ot his power under onr
Constitution,
Yours respectfully,
FRANK FLETCHER.

I have the honor, therefore to solicit
ymir votes anil mlluenoo, nnil if eleoted 1 shall do my utmost to secure for
tbe Province honest, economical und
rirnpressive government.
A brief outline of some of the principles which I think should be embodied in the Legislative Aots is given
below.
i havo tbo honor to be gentlemen,
Your obedient servant,
O. A. B. HALL.
1. The prinoiple of eight hours constituting a legal day's work should be
recognized and strictly enforced.
2. Steps Bhould immediately be
taken through the proper channels to
prevent Uu Immigration into this
country of Chinese aud Japanese labor-
era.
3. Two dollars and a half por day
should be the minimum wage of unskilled In tu ir throughout tbo Provinco
on all government works.
4. A fair wage bill should be intra
duced requiring the payment of standard wages ou ull works to which the
Province contributes subsidies or aid
iu any form.
5. The establishment of a labor
bureau under the direction of a Minister of the Grown, whose duty it shall
be among other things, to collnct labor
statistics, and   to act  as   a   mediator

between employers und workmen in
all oases of actual or threatened
strikes with power to call and examine witnesses and compel disclosure
of all muteriul facts iu connection
with suoh disputes.
li. I tielievu thut trunk roads should
be built and maintained by tbe government nnd encouragement given to
miners to extend these roads. Such
work should be directed by competent
government engineers. Where trails
tire required to single or small groups
of claims the cost of suoh trails, if
built by tbe claim owners on tho approval and under direction of a government iimseotor or engineor, shall
apply us  assessment  upon the claims.
7. Government ownership of all

fl. To drnw tbe attention of capitalists anil investors to British Columbia
as a desirable oentro for profitable
mining operations by suitable adver-
tisomout and by the nppointment of
a special agent at London and elsewhere whose ssrvioes shall be free and
equally available for all owners of
British Columbia properties.
10. To encourage the establishment
nt suitable points in British Columbia of
(a) Steel and iron works.
(b) Shipbuilding yards.
(c) Additional   smelters and   refineries.
11. The retaining of the resources
of tbe Province as an asset for tbe
benefit of the people, nud taking effective nioosares to prevent the nlienation
of the public domain, except to  actnal

to the practice of speoulating iu the
same.
12. The taking of active measures
for the systematic exploration of the
Province, including a government survey of the provinoe by sections nnd
the preparation of accurate and cheap
maps iu ncoordance with suoh   survoy.
18. The interests of the Provinoe
oan be best served by a permanent
civil service, appointments to which
should be made by reason of merit and
uot of political influence.
14. All unoccupied lands in the Proviuce should be open to bona fide settlers at fair prices whioh shall be decided opon by a government land agent
or vnlnator, and better facilities should
be given for acquiring small areas for
establishment of market gardens and
homesteads.
15. Where mineral claims are held
by joint owners and where one or
more of such owners refuses to contribute towards the annual assessment
work, provision should be made in tbe
Mineral Act for tbe sale of the interest of such delinquent  owner.
10. Tbe abolition of the deposit by
onndidates for tbe legislature.
Redistribution of the constituencies
on an equitable basis.
I will advocate the appointment of
a conciliatory Board to consist of
representatives of Labor, Business
and Capital, to whom all disputes
between Labor and Capital will be
submitted.

John Houston, of Nelson
Printer
(The Miner is not in any way responsible for My
of the sentiments expressed in these columns. The
matter is prepared by Dr. Hall's friends and occupies space purchased by Ilr. Hall's committee.)
There is nothing now but the voting
and it is more than likely every man who
will mark a ballot today has already made
up his mind how that ballot shall be marked.
Hut if there is any man who has not yet
decided how his vote shall be cast, let him
consider well before he visits the polling
booth today. In the Nelson Riding he
has the choice of three candidates, Dr. G.
A. B. Hall, Frank Fletcher and John
Houston. Dr. Hall stands for good government and purity in politics. He stands
for equal rights for all men and special
privileges  for none.    As  a   friend  of all
classes he appeals to all classes for their
support and believes that when the polls
are closed today it will be found that he has
received that support. Frank Fletcher's
election means a return to Turnerism. It
means new life inlo a body the honest electors of this Province fought so hard to kill.
Turnerism is dead and should not be revived. The election of John Houston
would be a calamity. John Houston stands
for all that this Province does not want at
the present time. His election means further injurious agitation and the arraignment of other members of the Legislature
against the Nelson member. To a great
extent the prosperity of the Nelson district
hangs upon today's election. Let the
electors choose wisely. If they do their
ballots will be marked for Dr. Hall.

and Government, and to participate in
tbe warmest manner in the eloquent
terms in which be has moved thu address I do not think it can be ft source
of unqualified regret that tbe war bus
taken place. It has been the boiiBt of
the Empire that during the illustrious
reign of Her Majesty, which has never
been surpassed by any Sovereign iu
tbe world, either in regard to the qualities of tbe Sovereign, the great events
that huve occurred or the great expansion of the Empire which ihe has
been called upon to rule, flint right
and liberty should prevail where lloata
the British Hag."
Sir Charles spoke eloquently of the
bravery of tbe Canadians at the front
and predicted that iu a short time we
would find ft happy nnd united South
Africa, in which all races, all creeda,
all classes would enjoy equal privileges
in the eyes of the law, and would become a united and happy population,
loyal to the Crown of Knglnnd."
Bourussu opposed the motion. He
said that he endorsed all that bad been
said of the bravery of tho Canadians
and British soldiers, but that the result of the war did not add ono ounce
of glory to Great Britain (this was received with shouts of "shame'' and
hisses). The war, hesuid, was brought
on by ambitious men and financiers iu
South Africa who wanted large dividends (renewed hisses and cries of
"shame.")
At tbe end of Bourassa'u speech the
Honse gave three cheers for tbe Qneen
and sang "God Save the Queen,"
after which Charleton severely rebuked Bourassa.
Premier Laurier also resented what
Bourassa said aud repeated that the
war was a just one. He denied that
Bourassa spoke for tbe French Canadians. While admitting tbe right of
free speeoh, he said that Bourassa bad
ohosen a very poor time to givo expression to his views. (Cheers.)
