Dr. Hall has beon pressed for some
days to allow his friends to present
bis name as a candidnto at the elections bnt, up to yesterdny, hnd declined to allow bin name to go before tbe
people. Last uight, in rosponso (o
numerous and repented requisitions,
made npon him by ninny electors of

name to be announced   as u candidate.
Dr. Hall ban not yet announced his

Regina vs. W. E. Sutherland for nt-
toring a lorged dopnment. The caso
has already been described In The
Miner as nomiug np iu tbe Polioe
Court for preliminary trial. The
down was represented bv H. A. Mao-
dounld, of Rosslaud, nnd the prisoner
by Messrs. W. A. Macdonald, Q. 0.,
aud P. E. Wilson.
Tho jnry wbo tried the oase was as
follows: 14. W. Day, foreman; S. J.
Cnmpbell, A. Carrie, J. A. Macdonald, J. T. Fife, R. S. Joy, H. D.

CURTIS ON HOUSTON.
Thinks the Mayor Should He Forced
to Shew His Hand.
Hon. Smith Cnrtis did a great deal
of hustliug in Nalson yesterday. He
nuns m1 to^tell a Miuer man to what
end be was working, but it is understood tbat he was looking about in an
effoit to find a good Martin candidate
io this Hiding in case Mr. Houston
oannot be brought around to thu Martiu side of tbe fonoe.
"If yon will tell me what Houston
is going to do and where be stands at
tbe present time, "said Mr. Curtis,
"I will tell yon wbat we are going to
do bere. Cotton won't be in the next
bouse and Houston will therefore have
no leader if he ooutinuos as at preseut.
It he is eleoted be won't be able to
oarry ont his ideas beoanse be will be
by himself and without any party sup-
port of any kind."
"Don't you worry about Houston,"
���aid a Houston man within hearing.
"And don't you worry about a Mm tin
oandidate. Houston will lino up all
right if he goos into the.House."
"But no one knows whether he will
or not," replied Mr. Curtis. "He
batn't said so.'
"Well there's plenty of timo for
tbat,-'said the Houston  man.
"No sir, Mr. Honston owes it to
his oonstituonts to say just where bo
will stand if be is elootod. Au election is ln tho nature of a plebisoite. A
party is put in power because tbo people are favorable to the laws whicb
that party pledges itself to enaot and
tbe work it pledges itself to do. Mr.
Honston with a platform of bis own
cannot hope to do anything stundiug
in tbe Honse by himself. He must
stand with a party if bej hopes to be
ol value to his constituents. "
Mr. Curtis feels oonlldent of his
election in Rossland and equally confident that the Martin Government
will be roturnod.
SUTHERLAND ACQUITTED.
His Counsel Successfully Established
an Alibi for Him.
Tbe Court of Agnizes was  oooupied
all day yeaterday in trying tbe case of
Fred   Starkey,
John Fmser.
The evidenoe put in by the Crown
was abont the same as that offerod in
tbe Police Court at the preliminary
hearing.
They endeavored to prove tbat Sutherland had on the night of tbe 84th of
February last, in oompany with M.
K. McAllister, entered the house of a
woman named Willie Morgan and in
payment for drinks given her a raised
one dollar bill, whioh purported to be
a lo bill. Iu return be reoeived
nine dollars cbnngo and soon after left
tbe house with McAllister and after
leaving remurked that he bad passed
the wrong bill. Tbe Morgan woman
was pnt on tbe stand and testified
thnt McAllister hnd come to ber honse
with a man whom be told her was
Sutherland and that she had gotten a
raised bill from him and given bim
90 in change. Tho proseontion laid
great stress upon the olotbes worn by
the man who gave the bill, as described by the womnn, and also upon be
peculiar watch chain tbat she described as having beeu woru by hira and
whicli tallied with ono owned by the
prisoner.
A man named Devoir testified to
having given Sutherland thu bill'in
qnestion nud tbat he had never seen
it again until it came into oourt. Several other witnosses followed nnd McAllister was then pnt upon tbe stand.
He testified to knowing tbat the bill
was in the possession of tbe prisoner
and that ou tho '.' ttb of February between tl and 10-DO p. m. they bad
gone together to the Morgan woman's
house, aud that Sutherland bud passed
tbe bill liiiM'tviii,, ..- in change. He
was the most damaging witness and
seemed anxious to incriminate tbe accused.
After reoess tbe defense pnt Mrs.
Hudson,of Latimer Street,on tbe stand
who testified tbat Sutherland bad
beeu nt hor home on tbe evening of
the v lili of February from oigbt
o'clock until a quarter of twerNe. Sbe
fixed the date by pioducing a reoeipt
for some money which she paid Suth.
erlnnd ou that evening and whiob was
put in as evidence. The Crown tried
to prove, the invalidity of the reoeipt
as having most piobably been written
after Sutherland was arrested. Viotoria Hodsou corroborated her mother's
testimony as to the presence of Sutherland at their borne on tbe evening iu
question nnd also as to seeing tho reoeipt mado out [and signed at tbat
time. JAfter Allan MoLaughliu bad
testified to being at Mrs. Hodson's in
company with Sutherland on the 24th
from 8 o'clock until 11 and Messrs. F.
R. 0. Beer, Charles Parker and W.
H. Rutherford had testified as to the
good character of the accused, the prisoner was pnt on the stand. He denied
in toto the evidence of the Morgan woman nnd McAllister, as to having
beon at tho Morgin woman's house
as stated. Did not deny having owned the bill hot said it had not been in
his possession for a long time and that
he had nover carried it around with
him. Said tbat MoAllister and be
quarrelled about the 1st of April and
shortly afterward the arrest followed.
MoAllister bad lived with bim end
had accesB to the bill. He also testified
to having Bpent the evening iu question nt Mrs.  Hodson's.
W. A. Maodonald, Q. C, made an
eloquent speeoh for the defense in
which ho dilated to the jnry upon the
nndoubted alibi whiob bod been established. He spoke of the good reoord
of tbe prisoner aud the faot tbat he
bad uevei couoeolod the possession of
the bill in question and then referred
with scathing contempt to the witness
MoAllister as having beon actuated by
n spirit of malice in his testimony and
also compared the two men as to character with tbe result of placing McAllister In a most unonvinblo light. He
asked fnr an ncquittal on these grounds
from the jury.
The Crown followed with an argument to the "licet that the alibi was
not a valid one and also tbat tbe connection between the prisoner and the
man who pnssed tbo bill had boen woll
established.
Mr. Justice Drnke in charging the
jury took ocoasion to severely score
MoAllister nnd referred to him in
most deuunciatory terms.
The jnry after a fow moments consul tation returned a verdict of not
guilty.

London, May 10.���General; Hutton'n
mounted infantry brigade, inolnding
the Canadians, witb a part of General
French's oavalry, orossed the Zand
River Toosday, and begnn to work
their way oautiously along tbe railway
northward iu the traok of the retiring
Boers, Abont 8,000 horsemen were;
engaged in this advanoe.
General Hutton, before ho was join
ed by a part of General Fiennh 'a force
had a sharp right. This waa on Monday, when he reached tbe river and
saw the Boer convovs on the other side
and pressed forwnrd intending to cross
and capture tbem.
The Boers opened fire with eight
gnns, seemingly they were in thousands and sought to envelope the lint
ish. Geueral Hutton fell back tbe
Boers folbwing.until other oavalry reinforcements arrived. During tbe
nigbt the Boers letreated, nn.&/other
contesting thu orossing.
Lord Roberts, according to a correspondent left Smal Deel Tuesday to
consult one of the Hamiltons, lfi miles
distant. The Boer attack on Geueral
Hutton does not indicate any snch
conditions as havu beeu alleged to exist among tbem. Nevertheless tbe
lirtiish ml vain enrolls on steadily. General Broadwood and Bruco Hamilton
hnve penetrated 15 miles beyond
Wynburg, acoording to Boer advices
sharp fighting is daily occurring, and
there was a brisk rifle engagement outside Wynburg Saturday.
Toronto, Ont., May 9.���In a letter to
hiss father, Colonel Mason, Captain
Mason speaks thus of tho Boer prisoners at Capo Town:
"I am told thero are ovor 15,000 sympathizers in Cape Town who would
turn out tomorrow if tbey were not
afraid of [bo results. Only last night
throe or four woru oaugnt signalling
from tbe side^of a bill tu tbe prisoners.
I ieollv oannot seo what good It did
them or what they ever hoped to gain,
oortaiuly not liberty, for it would be
utterly impossible for any to get nwny.
I don't romember if I told you in my
last letter how seourely they ore quartered. Tbis rnce course, whore they
aro quartered, is enclosed first hy two
barbed wire fences, then a high steel
picket fence, surmounted by spikss
and barbed wire. Outside of thnt, at
intervals of abont eighty or oue hundred yards sentries Hre posted on platforms about twenty feot ini-ti ani ten
fe.it long, affording uu excellent view
of thoir camp. Outside of this again
is another wiro fence. The second
fence from the onoloauro is strung
with eleotric wires nt night, and the
whole plaoo ia lighted witb electricity,
j poles being place over eaob sentry,"
Capo Town, May 9.���It is believed
here tbat.on tbe airival of tbe British
at the Vaal River,;a proclamation will
be issued annexing tbe Orange Free
Stute to tbe Domiuiou of the Queen
and demonstrating the determination
of the Queen'b foroes to assert Britiah
supremaoy over tbe annexed  territory.
Tbe Britiah losses at Brandfort are
now reported to have been muoh heavier than was drat repotted. After Ibe
battle British patrols visited tbe farmhouses in tbe surrounding diatriute
and all the men were taken prisoners,
while tbe borses and gone were remove. Lord Koberts is thus adopting a
sterner.polioy witb a view of preventing guerilla righting in tbe rear of tbe
British. Horses are now commandeered and f-irmbonsos where guns are
found are destroyed, while the men are
urrested.
London, May 0.��� Although the
British expect considerable opposition
nt tbe difficult drift of the Zand Kir-
the latest advices from Smal Deel
indioato that tbe Federals are not yet
ready to make a determined attempt
to stop Lord Roberts' advanoe. Tbe 1st-
ter's front, indeed, is ao wide au.i
overwhelming in numbers tbat it li
difficult to aee bow tbe Boeis can help
being ouatod from Virginia Hiding, aa
they wero out of Smal Deei, even if
they elect to give battle. Tbe san.e
considerations would probalby affeot
tbe stand at Kroonstadt, benoe tbe
general belief that little real opposition will lie encountered soutb of tbe
Vaal. The repaiia to the brigdes over
tbe Vet River and the Vaal are expected to retard the general march
from Smiil Deel and Fourteen Streams
for three or four days when General
Bnller will also be litpty.
The general idea ia that Lord Roberts will direct Ids right on Har-
rismith'iu order to got in touohwwith
the Natal army ooming through Van
Keenau's Pass.
A dispatoh from Masern, dated May
S, says:
"The Boers bave deserted both
Ladybrand aud Fickaburg in a panicky
condition owing to reports that tha
British hud occupied Seneka, tbua
threatening their retreat to tbe Transvaal. "
Smal Deel, May 9.���Yosterdoy General Hutton attempted to seize a Boei
convoy that v��n leaving the Zand
River. He advanced towaids the river
witb infantry. A loug line of wagons
was plainly visible. Ou becoming
aware of General Hutton's object tbe
Boers stopped and opened fire. They
seemed in great force and worked a
great deal of havoc. Presently mounted Boers were seen orossing tbe dry
lands of the river bed. They ciroled to
tbe right and begun io onfiladu tbe
West Australians while many of the
British were hit by shells. The position became serious. Tbe Boers sent
up reinforcements,placing tbe Australians in danger of being cut off. Thereupon Oeneral Hutton oidered a retirement to Wolgelegen, whero be bad left
his own convoy. A portion of tbe
forces advanced and engaged the Boers
to oover the retirement whicb was
soooossfully made.
Tbo Boeis continued to shell the retiring troops, but sbowod no doBiro to
prcHs.tho attack further,meanwhile the
Boer trains steamed away north,blowing up the culverts  as.they went.
Loudon, May 10.���A dispatoh to the
Times, fiom Smal Deel, dated May N,
says:
"Lord Roberts has halted here'to

A dispatoh to Tbe Morning Post
from Ladysmitb, dated Wednesday,
says:
"General Buller has issued a proclamation to tbe Dutch rebels, who
are willing to surrender, notifying
them that be will recommend all, who

Tbis appears a futile moaauie to get

PORTFOLIOS 9 and 10.
A meeting was held in Washington
two nights ago to arrange a grand reception in honor of tho Boer delegates.
Many Senators and Representatives
were present. It was decided to aocoid
them a reception similar to those
tendered La Fayette, Kossuth,and Par-
uell. A big demonstration will be organised, and public addresses will be
delivered in the Grand Opera House on
Sunday tho ailth. If Spain had sent
peace delegates to London, and if tho
leading public men of that oity bad
reoeived them as Washington is preparing to receive those Boors, neithor
Cuba, nor Porto Rioo, nor the Philippines would ever have heen invaded'by
American troops. The fleets of France
and Germany would bave boen over to
prevent. The Ameiicans are advertising themselves as a mo.it ungrateful
people. Their Boor demonstration will
be put down to the exigencies of the
Presidential election. A people of
finer Benslbilities would permit no domestic exigencies to interfere witb
tueir international obligations of bonor

IT RAINS   HOUSTON.
Quite a number iu Nelson are beginning to ask themselves if there is not
jnat a little too much Houston in the
publio porridge. The man is forever
thrustiug himself forward ; not to help,
bnt to rule. He insists on imposing
himself on the publio whenever an
openiug affords him ihe oocasion, declaring iu effeot that ho is the ouly
man capable of serving tbem. He
oame to the front at the first eleotion
for Mayoi and crowded out a better
man, mainly beoause be was the favorite type of representative with the old
timers. At the expiration of bis first
term he insisted upon standing again,
bnt bn tbat ouoasiou was turned down.
He bobbed up again tbe third timo,tolling the people tbat he was tbe only
porsan iu the Oity wbo knew bow to
handle its affairs. He wanted the nomination in Mr. Hume's place in the
1898 eleotion, olaiming that be knew
more of Provincial affairs than all the
rest of his party. And now that thore
is another goueral electiou be hastens
to announce himself a oandidate, as if
in mortal terror tbat some other person
would be nominated ahead of him.
He announoes bis candidature ond issues his address, and baving thus slaked liis olaim he agrees to call a convention, that it may go through the form
of continuing the nomination wbioh he
has bimself made.
It is Houston bere, Houston
there; Houston this,and Houston that.
Honaton everywhere and everything.
The impression abroad is that there
is no one in Nelson who knows anything bnt Houston, no one wbo can do
an/thing but Houston. He takes the
whole mafbagement and control of jlvlo
affairs iuto bis own bauds, tieating
the Aldermen as if they were ohildreu,
too immature for responsibility aud too
incapable to be of use. We bave Houston with onr electrio light, Houston
with eur water; Honstou orders the
scavenging aud direots the watering
cart. Houston cuts out our public work
and hires tbe men. Honston deoides
tbe grades and the exoavatious. A
hole in a rook cannot be drilled or
loaded without Houston. Houston
paves our streets nnd digs our sewers. Nothing can be done, not n step
taken, without permission of this wonderful Houston. It fairly ruins Houston. Tbe smell of him pervades the
whole town; bis grasp is on everything.
Ie   it any wonder people are getting

Tbe Greenwood Times bas been
mali ing a bouquet of some ohoice selections from Mr. Martin's speech in that
town:
"I never asked Laurier for his support in this oampaigu. I don't waut
his support. It would do me mora
barm than good."
"I was uot mnde Minister of the Interior in the Laurie! Cabinet beoause
the Canadian Pacifio Railway Oompany nisi.'H'il that I should be kept
out. "
"I criticised the mistakes of the
Laurier Government, and I must say
they weie many. "
"Sir Wilfrid Laurier is being badly
advised by tbe Liberal members from
this Provinoe."
"The Liberal members from thiB
Province who denounce me are creatures of tho Canadian Pacific Railway
Company."
As to the secoud, leading Liberals
say he was kept out because, if taken
iu, the Government would bave placed
itself over n powder mine.

nights of next weik. Mrs. Houston
is acoompauied by Miss Keverly Robinson, the Toronto soprauo, and by
Mr. Owou Smiley, the well known

one and to bav? drawn large houses nt

Under the ninnngoiuent of Oscar
Stevens the Wavorley Hotel promises
to become ft most popular place, not
only for Nolson peoplo but us well for
transients. The office of the houso has
beeu furnished and now presents a
most metropolitan air. In the dining
room tbe new manager has worked a
wondrons change, not only in the appearance of tho room itself but in the
menu. There,; are no signs of tho decline into whioh the hotel hud fallen
under the old management, and undei
the mauagemeut of the energetic Oscar
Stevens there can be nothing but advancement iu the future.
The following assessments, locations

At a meeting of the'Operntio Society
held last evening Melville Parry ro-
ported that there had been raised at
the performance of Pinnfnre for the
benefit of Saudon $701), which with
$52.25 expense, left $1150.75, which
was forwarded to Mayor Pitts, of Sandou yesterday. It was at first supposed that at least (H00 would have been
iaised.but moie tioketa were returned
unsold than was expected. As it was
a larger amount was raised thnn was
ever before raised in Nelson iu a similar way and for a Bimilar purpose. A
general meeting of the Operatic Society
will be held in the Board of Trade
rooms next Tuesday afternoon at 5
o'clook.
Mr. Frank Wood who wns interested
in the Last Chnnco mine was one of
those who wont through tho Saudon
fire. He and Mrs. Wood wore at the
Reoo Hotel and were awakened in time
to escape with a few, a very few,
olothea on. In taut Mr. Wood did not
have time to pot on baicly anything,
he went down stairs with his trousers,
containing all his money, and a watch
whioh he particularly prized. After
he got down stairs he handed the
trousers and watch to some one to
hold while he went up to make an attempt to save something else. When
he oame down again the man who hnd
volunteered to hold the trousers and
watoh had disappeared." It ssoms that
there was a great  deal of looting at
the (ire and that many goods were saved whicli have never since heen seen.
It also Beams that many of the supplies
sent over to Saudon were appropriated by men who wore really not losers
by tho fire, hut simply loafers who
had heen knocking around tbo town.
They secured many cases of goods
whioh they have cached away and thus
scoured themselves a stook of supplies
thnt will last for some time.

Hon. Smith Cnrtis speut a large portions of his time iu Nelson yesterday
iu the company of James Wilks,the labor lender. They dined together and
held several conferences, all of whiob
set the politicians about town to guessing. What Mr Curtis was trying to do
with Mr. Wilks, or what Mr. Wilks
was tiying to do with Mr.^Ourtis is an
open question but there is evidently
something on. It is will known thnt
Wilks is friendly to Martin, and It is
believed would prefer to lend his aid
to a Martin candidate than to Houston. If he is uot already pledged to
Honston it is quite likely thnt if a
Martin candidate enters the field he
will secure Wilks' support.
In the Police Court yesterday morning were the two Italians nnmed Do-
minaca and Toroco, who were oharged
with creating a disturbance on Tuesday in front of the Club Hotel. The
meu had had a fist tight at tbat place
aud later on had hnd another altercation on Hall Straet when Toroco pulled
out n revolver and threatened to use it
on Dominant. The usual diflionltv in
secuiing witnesses to such affairs
among Italians was experienced, as
all the men who had been spectators
had cleared out of town ou Wednesday.
The ibaige was mado by tbe police
and Toroco was also charged with carrying n concealed weapon. After
honring the evidence Magistrate Crease
fined Toroco 850 or six months in
jail and Dominaco825 or three months.
Toroco also got nn additional sentence of $25 or three mouths in jail for
carrying the revolver.

The cancellations above referred to
