Arrangements are Now Under
Way for the Big
Celebration.
Something Out of the Ordinary May Be Expected.
When Nelson people arise on the
morning of July 4 next, at Ihe time
their oousius across the way are sl'it
ing their celebration, tbey will ju-jt be
beginning to realize the fact that their
Dominion Day celebration���lasting two
daya��� was one of tbe biggest things in
the history of the Province of Brit sb
Columbia. This will be so, ut least, if
the arrangements, which will be under
wajr in a few days, are fully carried out.
A nice for the diamond skml profes-
.iooal championship of the world, between Jake (iaudaur and a Pacific Coast
oarsman, ia one of the possibilities, and
in addition to this fuiir-onred arews
from Winnipeg and James Ray moy con-
teat for the Western Canadian obiun-
pionahip. Both of these events are under consideration. Id addition there
will be a water carnival surpassing anything ever before seen iu this Province
On land there will be a baseball totirun-
ment, B lacrosse tournament, tennis nud
orickel, bicycle and foot races, hose
reel competitions, a trade's parade and
everything that goes to make a celebration what it should be.
The first steps were taken yesterday
afternoon. Yesterday morning Mayor
Houston appointed a general committee to take hold ot tbe matter. Those
named were A. H. Buchanan, W. F.
Teet-el, Frnuk W. Peters, J. J. Mnlone
and Captain Troup. These geDtlemau
met yesterday afternoon in Mr. I Indian
an'aofflce and appointed sub-committees
as follows:
Water Carnival ��� Captain Troup,
oliairman; Melville Parry, Harold Se-
lous, W. J. Astley, Charlts Hilljer,
George Beer, Captain Gore.
Finance Committee���Graugo V. Holt,
chairman; W. J. Thompson, Charles A.
Waterman, G. Frank Beer, James
Neelands, John Cboldich, T. M. Ward,
11. B. Cameron,
Trade Procession���F. W. Peters,
chairman; Will Irvine, T. J. Sims, P.
Chapman, Blake Wilson.
Music and Decorations���W. F. Teet-
Bel. chairman; James Lawrence, Arthur
Sherwood, A..G. Gamble, Jacob Dover,
Fred Irvine.
Water Sports���A. H. Baehanan, oliairman; B. W. Day, C. B. Winter, T. M,
MoBae, Emmett C. Brown aud G. W,
Hale.
Land Sports���J. J. Maloiie, chairman ; W. J. Thompson, Chus. A.
Waterman, W. P. Dickson, II. Dyers,
T. M. McRae, W.   A.   (lalliber,   T. J.
Stmt,
Mayor Houston is an ex-offloio
member of all committees.
Before appointing the Committees
the goneral committee elected Mr,
Buchanan, permanent chairman, and
K, C. Beaton permanent secretory, It
was taken as tbe sense of the meeting
that no moneys should be appropriated
this year for drilling competitions or
horse races, hut that the money heretofore expended in this direction
should be added to the water appropriation so that this feature of the
carnival may be made the most imposing.
The finance committee will begin its
labors at once and Chairman Molt
will report the result at a meeting td
be held next Monday afternoon at 3
o'clock in Mr. Buchanan's office.
It ia believed that the people of Nelson
will r��tdily respond to the appeal for
funds and that everything planned
will be carried out. Nothing definite
will be done in the matter of the programme until It Is seen what amount
of money can be raised. Appropriations trill then be made to the different romniittees,
COUNCIL DOINGS.
Not Much Business Transacted Last
Night.
The City Council last night ratified
Mayor Houston's action in appointing
the general committee, referred to
elsewhere, to make all arrangements
for the Dominion Day celebration,
and in addition appropriated 8500 toward the celebration fund.
The City Engineer was instructed
to begin work at once upon a sewer
In an alley north of Vernon Street,
from the middle of block 08 as far
west as nocessary and on Josephine
Street from the alley north of Vernon
to Front, thence to Cedar and on
Lake Street from Hall to Ward.
Upon the suggestion of Mayor
Houston it was moved by Aid. Arthur
and seconded by Aid. Irvine that 600
feet of hose he placed at the corner of
Hall and Front Streets and that a
shed be erected at that point to shelter
the hose.
Upon motion 11 Aid. Hall a sewer
was ordered laid_ en Silica Street
from Hendry.v east to Park and on
llendryx south to Victoria, ou Victoria east to Cedar, thence south on
Cedar to first alley, and ou alley-way
in block .'ill as far as required.
All of the sewer work was ordered
done by day labor.
Upon motion of Aid. Irvine it waa
resolved to erect a new city stable on
the Park property near the pest
house.
In response to a request, it waa
moved by Aid. Irvine, seconded by
Aid. Morrison, that the city band be
donated S.10 per month for four months
from July 1, providing they will play
free on all civic occasions and give
open air concerts once every week.
The City Clerk was instructed to
inform Nurse Fahey that the Council
would pay her jfK'O, in full settlement of her bill for 22 days nursing
at the quarantine station at $7.50 per
day.
Upon motion it was resolved that
the Council request the Police Commissioners to give the houses at the
East End an extension of thirty days
in which to remove to another location.

Montreal, Que., May 28.���The erection of the big Connors elevator is
being held up, as It appears impossible to secure the approval of the Department of Public Works at Ottawa
of the plains. The plans were sent
up some time ago with the request for
prompt consideration and since then
several letters written to the department asking for prompt approval
have remained unanswered.
Those interested complained at a
meeting of the Harbor Board this
morning and a deputation was appointed to proceed to Ottawa and
secure the Minister's approval. The
question is being asked as to why the
plans should be held up and no answer forthcoming as the plans meet
the views of those most interested.

May 28, 5:25 p. m.���We marched 20
miles today aud are now 18 miles from
Johannesburg. The enemy bad prepared several positions where they intended to oppose us, but they abandoned one after the other as we approached them. We pressed them so
hard that they had only just had time
to get their Ave gnn. into a (rain nnd
leave the station as some of the West
Australian Mounted Infantry dashed
into it French's and Ian Hamilton's
forces are apparently engaged with
the enemy about 10 miles to our left

The farmers near our line of march
are surrendering with their arms and
horses. Bundle occupied Senekai on
May 21. No report of what took place
has reached me yet."

Ixindon, May 29���The Lorenzo Mar-
quest correspondent of The Times, telegraphing Monday: saysi " Command-
ant General Botha consulted the Transvaal Government a few days ago nnd
in Ihe strongest terms urged capitulation recognizing that Iho struggle is
utterly hopeless.
Neither persuasion nor the liberal use
of the sjambok oan induce the men to
stand. Steyn is equally emphatic for
peace hut Kroger is obdurate. The
feelings of Ihe Pretoria peace parly,
however, may at any moment carry
the point.
While the reports of a possible border conflict between the Boers and the
Portugese are not credited here, the
uneasiness of local officials continues.
All sorts of sensations! rumors are
afloat. The latest is of the hauling
down of the Portuguese Hag at the Portuguese Consulate in Pretoria. The
Hoers are undoubtedly strengthening
their commandos on the border"

<nv ASSOCIATKn rltUSS.)
London, May 2D,���a a. m.��� Lord
Roberts is now within a day's march
of Johannesburg and (leneral French
and (jfeiieral Ian Hamilton fought the
Boers from noon until evening ou
Monday, with what result is uot
known here. Mr. If. J. Whighaiu, in
a despatcli to the Daily Mail, dated
July 28, says: "The demoralization
of the Transvaal is remarkable.
Panic and confusion prevail everywhere. Everyone is weary of the war
and full of fear as to the coining of
the British. Operations were being
carried on for ^encircling Pretoria
with telephone communication.
Fourteen points in the line of defenses
were connected with headquarters
and with the Staats artillery hut this
api>arently was the only defensive
measure adopted. There were no
other visible preparations. Not much
gold' is likely to lie I'nuud in the
treasury. The salaries of the officials
and judges have not been paid, or
have been paid in National bank
notes, which will be worthless when
Lord Roberts arrives.
Tbe seat of government will be removed to Watervalboven, a smull
station on tbe Delagoa Bay Railway,
'nd if necessary to Lydenborg. Both
IV.'Ident Steyn and Kroger complain
bitter!} nf Lord Koborts' taotios in refusing to most the Boers in positions
chosen by tbem, and in eternally turning tbem by flank movements. Arouud
Johannesburg a few trenohes bare been
dug, bnt no otber steps have been
taken for defence Tbe railway line
is blocked with refugees,from the west
and south west, who are packed like
sardines In trucks. The Government
is now endeavoring to reassure the
public by tolling them that the British
wiil not outrage nnd plunder them,
bnt it is too lato. The previons statements are bringing their rewards.
Foci is very srfarco and prices rule
high. The proposal to rdleaso the
Rrltish prisoners of war is due to this
faot. Memhors of the Government
aud of tho Volksraad express approval
of tbe proposal, but President Kruger
is violently opposed to it.
There has been a decided change in
publio opinion which baa become quite
English. The Burghers on commando
sing "God Hnve Iho Queen" and tbey
cannot be stopped. All are siok of warfare. In towns the rabid nuti-Euglishism
is losi rampant. Peoplo arotbiuking of
tbeir property. Thu party eager for
surrender is now very influential and includes the principal leaders at the front.
Tbo intelligent public feel that the game
is op. False news no longer has any
effect and the lying reports of the newspapers are universally disbelieved. Although the hand of the censor has licen
very heavy on news of nil kinds recently,
every one believes Ihe worst.
Tlie Government has* 'arranged to
continue the agitation against the
British occupation of the two Republics on the continent of Europe. In
Great Britain and in the United
States  great  efforts  are   to  lie made
In this direction and no urpiuM will
be ipkred,    1   have   excellent   reasons
(or believing that tbe BewwrplMtses
rights have been sold to a Freiirh
syndicate without the sanction of the
Volksraad.
Tile (lovernineiit hopes by this
means to bring about French intervention for the protection of French
rights In the Wltttiitcrsmud and thus
cause England grave difficulties. The
conduct of United states Consul Hay
is  admirably discreet and meets with
universal praise alike from  Boer and
British sympathizers.
Another despatch from Lorenzo Mar-
quoz says: " General Botha is at Pretoria urging President Kruger to arrange
peace terms. Runaway Burgher, from
Lning'sNek passed through Hieldeborg
last week and officials with their farrilies
aro leaving Johannesburg and Pretoria
for Lydenberg. President Steyn occupies the house of a British resident at
Pretoria. Passengers arriving at Iki-
renzo Marquee from Pretoria Monday
say it was believed there that the British would not be at the cupital for a
month, nevertheless thero was much
unrest aud anxiety."
Senekai, May ST.���General Bundle,
with artillery, the Yeomanry ami
the Wilts Middlesex- and Leceister
Regiments, under Major Dalbiae, has
occupied Senekai, whence the Boers
were driven by a few shells.
A field cornet and a number of other
Boers were killed.
The British casualties numbered
eleven.
The Boers arc believed to be concentrating near Bethlehem.

Victoria, B.0., May 28���Tbe political
pot is boiling merrily at the C-uwt. A
dozen or more meetings have been arranged for dates between now and eleotion day and the excitement ia growing
apace. There is likely to be
a very hot contest in Victoria Oity,

There will be hot contests in the
Nanaimo constituencies. -Dunsmuir
is looked on as a sure winner in South
Nanaimo, aa is C. H. Dickie,
the Opposition candidate in Duncans.
Br.vdeii (Opposition) will have his work
cut out for him to defeat Mclunes in

Greenwood, B. C, May 28���Ex-Governor Charles II. Mackintosh, Conservative nominee for legislative honors
in Kosslund Biding, returned here today from a tour of the Boundary country. He said: "After visiting all the
towns and ninny big mines in tbe district I can report'a strong feeling indicating a great triumph for the opponents of Martinisui on election day.
Many lending Lilwrnls will vote for me
and the ranching sections are almost
solidlv in my favor. I attribute this
not only to the unpopularity of Martinisui as exemplified in tho candidature of Mr, Smith-Curtis, but also to
their policy of misrepresentation in regard to my attitude towards the working classes. The evidence from eastern Canada and elsewhere that I produced has rapidly cleared away any
doubt on this scote. 1 am satisfied
that the Boundary will give me a majority us will also Trail and Rossland."

THE BUSINESS VOTE
exaggeration; lie lias  not the solid
business interests nt his back, nor
the majority of  them, nor the chief
and most Influential of them.   But
why should any business  man  support   Mr.    Houston?   There   are,
perhaps, business men in the Riding
who would reply   to this  that they
know their business better than The
Minei does.    Tbey must excuse us
if The Miner takes  leave to  doubt
this,    The business  of a  business
man is not to run after tree adver-
vertising, to humor  a Mayor  who
may have  some municipal patronage, or to pay obsequious court to a
member in the hope of getting something in return.    It is his business to
help build up this Province  by  giving it tbe best possible Government,
for whatever builds up the Province
will  build up Nelson, and whatever
builds up Nelson will build up  his
own interest.    There is  something
higher in politics  than  personal or
selfish aims, and the   business man
who  knows   his   business  realises
this.    The Province  cannot be advantaged  by   the election  of  Mr.
Houston, who would be out of sympathy with the controlling influence
of the Legislature and whose disposition would make him obnoxious to
it.    It   would   be    poor  husiness,
therefore,   to   elect    him,   and the
business man who casts a vote  lor
him is very far indeed from knowing
bis business,
For a candidate seeking Legislative distinction Mr.   Houston   is  a
person of  singular   modesty.    He
has taken the public to tat into his
confidence as to tell   them  that  he
will  support   the   Eight-Hour  law
and that he is sawing wood.    That
appears to be as far as he can be induced to go.    As the  Eight-Hour
law is already a law, and as there is
no one in sight who meditates an attack upon it, it does  not  seem  to
require    anybody's   support.    The
fact that Mr. Houston saws wood is
interesting, may be, but not import
j ...
Mr. Hillyer   is  a  strong   Martin
man, and also a supporter  of Mr
Houston.    He  doubtless  sees  the
connection.

party, to the leadership of which he
fell heir when the  late  Premier decided to give  up the fight and seek
repose  on  his farm.    But   it   has
proved a vain effort.    He  has only
nine   candidates  in   the  field,  and
there does not seem the least prob-
ability that more than two or three
of them will be elected,    The situation  thus early  has  therefore   resolved itself into this : the Government cannot survive the  elections,
which  disposes of one of the three
parties ;   the Cotton party will  be
too weak in the Legislature to be of
the    slightest    influence    or   use,
which pretty effectually disposes of
another, and a Government will be
formed out of the different elements
which constitute the present Opposition.    These are made up of Conservatives,   Independent  Conservatives, Independents, and  Independent   Liberals, differing in name and
outward complexion, but all agreed
in  restoring stable  government to
the  Province and putting it once
more on the high road to prosperity.
What will Nelson gain by sending  Mr. Houston into  such   company as this? The Cotton members,
should there be any at all, can hardly
hope  to   be   numerous enough to
demand a division, and at best they
would be a discordant element.  Mr.
Houston says he has  the "backing
of the solid business  interests  of
JMson." We all know this is a gross
istration that lives in the public
memory was his unloading on the
City an electric light plant in which
he was heavily interested at several
times its cost. Mr. Houston has
never lost an opportunity to use the
Mayoralty to further his own interest, and it is to further his own
interest he desires to go to Victoria

Mr. Houston and his friends,

names on the voters' list. Of this
number 420 are absent, and of the
remaining 1,471 Mr. Houston
claims to have the promises of 818.
The Miner is authorised to offer a
wager of $100 that Mr. Houston
will not get 700 of the 1,471, thus
allowing him 118 to come and go
on. Will Mr, Houston or any ol
his friends take the bet?

If Mr. Houston has the solid business men of the City at his back he
made a great mistake in not getting
a display of their names on his nomination paper. The business interests represented on that document
are hardly numerous enough to create a deep impression on the public
mind.      	
Mr, Houston is everlastingly
prating about his friendship for the
labor cause. Will he take time
enough to tell in specific language
what he has ever done for labor?

Money for Final Paymont. Roaches Nolson from London.
Tho money for the final payment on
tho Birdseyc group of claims was
cabled to Nelson yesterday from Lou
don, though the option would nut have
expired until June 1st. The men anion),'
whom the money will be distributed
are Angus Shaw, .I. and .I. A. McRae,
A Crossett and David Luuk.
Mr, B. 0. Campbell-Johnston, mining engineer, when in the old count ry

before Investors who, Interested with
him, took a bond on the property and
have continuously mined it since, A
level on the liirdseye 1ms been driven
���long thu vein for 11)1) feel. From
within this level, a shaft lias been sunk
68 feet, giving Sl) feet backs of ore to
the surface outcrop. This shaft show
ed^i good vein nil the way down.wliicl
averaged one nnd one half ounces of
gold to the short ton. At the fool of
the shaft, when surface water suspended work, this vein showed two feet of
ore,giving two and three-eighths ounces
of gold to the short ton, of n value of
147.20. At the Gil foot level in the shaft
drifts were run north nud south along
the vein showing over two feet of ore
giving one aud one half ounces of gold
per short ton. On tho Inverness a tunnel aloug tbe vein hns been commenced
to tap litis shaft nt n depth of lit) feet
below the lower fun id. On the
Princeton a levol along the vein has
been driven for UI) feel lo shoitly cut a
rich chute of ore showing free gold on
the surface. On the Liiy al a further
depth of 220 feet this sumo vein wns
picked up und a level 111 feel, driven
along it. Considerable siirfnce stripping bns been' accomplished showing
the existence of eight known veins of
good prospect. The whole group consists of ten claims, covering 814 acres,
all crown granted, some of these claims
being located and some purchased.

T. C. DUNCAN Secretary
r"^iars"- NELSON DAILY MINER. TUESDAY. MAV 29,  1900.
To the Electors of the Nelson
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District :
Omm.B_KN���As the nomiueo of tho
(lonaervative party I hog to oiler myself
as a oaudidate at the ooming geuonil
eleotion to represent you in the Louis-
lative Assembly of this Provinoe.
The. timo has arrived when all put ties
are fully alive to the fnot that the future
welfare of our Proviuce demands a
sound, fair and honest ImsiucsB administration aud that auy great popular
Party must appeal to other and
higher oonBidoratiouB than those of individual fear ot loss, or hope of guiu.
I oonsider it the duty of every member
eleoted, to l>e a Proviuoialist to the extent of the best interests ot the Proviuoe
first, last and always, nnd to support all
good legislation with that object iu view
In asking you for your support, I will
slate that t am opposed to busty legislation of any kind, but particularly with
respeot to our Mining Laws, as tending
to jeopardize business interests and to divert oapital: for instance, twioo the Legislature has passed Alien Exclusion
Laws and they are now for tlie seoond
time seeking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief nnd damage.
With regard to the Eight-Hour Law, I
am opposed to any change iu tbe law
as it now stands. Shorter hours for all
olasses of labor is no new idea, but in
my opinion tho principle Bhould bo such
as to appeal to all Sections of tbe Community as being uot only a necessity nud
beneficial to all, but iu keeping with the
general advance incut of our civilization.
I would ndvooate the amendment aud
Btriot enforcement of ihe Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, bo as to more effectually protect the lives of workmen.
With regard to the Mineral Act: I
would endeavor to have certain sections
more dearly defined, for tho purpose of
avoiding litigation ; aud witb regnrd to
oo-ownerohip, to iutroduce nn inexpensive and speedy mode of making a oo-
ownor bear his share of asaeesmeut or
relinquish hia interest.
I am in favor of an amendment to our
Bchool Laws so is to give Cities the oou-
trol of the Sohools in their midBt.
A fair Redistribution Act should be
passed as Boon ns possible.
I would advocate tho bringing into
foroe of the Ton-en's Act, provided it ib
made optional ; as tho cost in a great
many cases will be excessive and out of
all proportion to any beuettt to bo derived.
I would urge the speedy construction
ot a Court House in Nelson, equal to
the requirements of this district,
I would Btrongly advocate incrensed
Grants for Roads, Trails and Bridges
wherever such will upbuild and developo
our Province, more ospeoially in tbo
Mining DistriotB, and all suoh expenditure to be placed in capable and experienced hands to be dealt with iu a
systematic way.
Our undeveloped natural resources
should receive more attention, and be
more widely advertised in order to nllrnet
oapital.
With regard to cheap foreign labor I
believe, where the remedy is an Imperial
matter, in view of tho stand our Province
and Country has taken in the present, war
giving both lives and money, the desired
end oan be gaiaed if properly sought,
without bringing about a serionB misunderstanding witb the Dominion Qovernment and entailing deplorable agitation
as we require peace and proeperitx_in our
midst.
I am opposed to nny clique or faction
of politicnl agitators whose principle aim
is to embarrass and retard tho bnsinesB
of tbe Proviuce for purely personal ad
vanoement.
I strongly condemn the aetions of the
Lieut.-Qovernor ns being an invasion of
tbe principle of responsible government
sod a misuse of his power nnder onr
Constitution,
Yours respectfully,
FRANK FLETCHER.
