BULLER
Buller's Success at Biggars-
berg  Restores   His
Prestige.
It Has Political as Well as
Military     Significance.
Expected That Dundee Will
Occupied by British
Today.
(BV ASSOCIATED rilESS.)
London, May 15.���4 p. m.���General
Boiler'a turning of the Biggarsberg
position was efleoted by a bold movement. Tbe Boers have evaouated Help-
manlier, but were making a stand
Monday at Hlaskoplngt, ? miles from
Dundee.
General Buller who seems to employing his full strength is expected l���
push on. His first marches in three
days. He is thus breaking Into British
territory, whioh has been administered for six months by the Transvaalcrs
as though it were part of their Republic, they holding Courts and levying
taxes. His success therefore has pollt-
cal as well as military consequences,
Two hundred Boers, who had bidden
in river jungles near Kroonstadt to escape service, have surrendered to the
British and taken tho oath of allegiance
(SPECIAL   in THE  HINBR.)
London, May 14,���A dispatch received by the Associated press from
Pietinartzburg. Natal, at 5 p. m. today, brings the first intimation of success attained by General Buller in
Northern Natal. The dispatch is
dated the 13th.
The sender of this dispatch evident-
dently assumes that news of the affair has been received from the scene
of hostilities, llcsays: General Buller's official telegram   announcing his
success at Biggarburg was received
here an hour ago and has given keen
satisfaction. It is confidently anticipated that Dundee will be occupied by
the British today. The residents of
the northern country are delighted, as
forcing the Biggarsburg means that
they will speedily be enabled to return to their homes."
At about the'tiine thin message was received another dispatch came to the Associated Press, dated Stone Hill Farm
H:UOa. in. today. It says: "After a
fourJJ days march eastwards, at the
foot of the Biggarsburg ridges, in the
direction of Ilelpinaakcr, which was
occupied by the Federals, the Second
Brigade, on Sunday, led the attack.
Duudonald's Cavalry brol<c_thc Boers
center and Methuens Horse advanced
on their extreme right. In the direction of Pomery a small party of Burghers occupied a ridge overlooking
Helpmaaker, but they did not wait
for the assault.'
Recent British scouting, in the direction of Dundee, has shown that the
Federals were in great force in the
Biggarsburg. So ^apparently General
Buller concluded that it was ueeefsary
to clear them from his rear, before
commencing a movement in the direction of the Drakensberg Range.
If that iB his plan, lie has possibly
divided his force, sending one column
eastward to threaten Vryhcid and
Utreicht and to take Laing Nek. In
the meanwhile a westbound column attempts to form a junction with the
forces of Lord Roberts, via the llani-
sinith Railway.
Telegrams from Croonstadt indicate
that General French's Cavalry is keeping in touch with the Boers. But,
Perhaps, Lord Roberts will be com
pelled to order a brief halt for his
main body in order to allow the troops
to recuperate after their exatisting
inarches of the past week. All the
correspondents agree that, to all intents and purposes, the Free Staters
have severed their military alliance
with the Transvaal, though in scattered bodies, they may possibly hold
out, here and there, for some time.
At the same time a dispatch, from
Cape Town, dated today, says: A
proclamation will be published this
week annexing the Orange Free State,
It is also said that General Botha, the
Commander-in-Chief of the Boer
forces, threatens to resign if any preparations are made for the wanton
destruction of property.
News from Mafeking is expected
speedily.^ The War Office is reported to
have expressed the opinion that the
news of the raising of the siege of that
place may be expected by Wednesday
London, May IT,���The War Office
has received the following dispatch
from Lord Roberts;
"Kroonstadt, May 13���There were
more casualties in the oavalry division on .May 10 than reported by ine.
I have been unable to get an exact account of what occurred as the commanding officer, Captain Elsworth,
was killed, and two officers were
wounded at the same time and have
been sent to the rear. But it would
appear that a party of our men going
to a kraal on which a white flag was
Hying were suddenly attacked by a
large number of the enemy. Two officers. Captain Hatch, of the Sixth Dragoons, and Lieutenant Wilkinson, of
the Australian Horse, were made prisoners and .'.'1 men are still unaccounted for. Some of them may have turned up as the cavalry covered a considerable distance May 10,aud many then
reported missing have been rejoining
during the last few days."
The above despatch refers to the
losses sustained by the Inniskillings
.May lOlli as detailed in the despatches
to the Associated Press Saturday last.
The troopers were fired on while they
were unsaddling their horses, having
approached the kraal unconsciously
while a white flag was flying from it.
KITCHENER BLOCKED.
Tears of a Dutch Maiden Prevent Dls-
trucllon of Reign tman'g Farm.
New York, May H.���A batch of correspondence frou the London office of
the Associated Press contains the following; "While Lord Kitchener was
engaged in iu suppressing the Presika
rebellion, he ordered the destruction
of a certain farmhouse, Not seeing
any signs of his orders being carried
out, he rode over with his staff and
Found an interesting situation. In
the doorway of the doomed farmhouse
stood a pretty young Dutch girl, her
hands clasping the door posts a id her
eyes Hashing fire from beneath her
sun bonnet. The Irish Seargeant Iu
charge of the party of destruction.was
���vainly   endeavoring'   to   persuade   her
to let them pass in, but to all his blandishments of ���Arrah dnrlinet, whisht
now ncushla' etc., the maiden turned
a deaf car and a dead look prevailed.
Lord Kitchener's sharp 'what's this?'
put a climax to the scene. The girl
evidently guessed that this was the
dreaded Chief of Staff and her lips
trembled in spite of herself.
Kitchener gazed sternly at the girl
standing bravely, though tearfully,
there and turned to his military secretary and said: 'Put down that the
Coniinaiidcr's orders, with reference to
the destruction of Reightmau's farm,
could not be carried out, owing to uii-
expocted opposition', Then came the
sharp order. 'Forward men!' This is
vouched for by C. A. McNuelleii, an
engineer recently returning from Johannesburg. ''
COUNCIL MEETING.
The Council meeting lost night was
a decidedly short one. A communication from the Kootenay Lake General
Hospital asking for five lights, was laid
over for a week. The bill of E. J.
Clayton for clothes destroyed at the
detention hospital was ordered return
ed with the information that the oity
did not cousider itself liable therofor
The 1 ill of Nurse Fahey, for nursing a
smallpox pationt, was referred to
Health Officer LaBau, with instrue
tions to report as to the correctness of
the charges. The monthly budget of
bills wan passed. The committee then
went into a committee of the whole to
consider the by-law regulating the duties of City officials.

Toronto, May 11���Mr. Ewan, writing
to the Glob.- from Cape Colony on the
part the mounted Canadians took in a
punitive expedition, says "I am thoroughly convinced that another repulse
of a considerable British force would
have set in motion a wave of rebellion
in Cape Colony, that would have been
the most disastrous event of this war.
Loyal inhabitants of the Colony, men

have been no harrier to this movement
They are the most part residents of
towns and cities, merchants and clerks
and such like. Those who were differently situated are already in the Held

on the other hand, are farmers, horse
men, springbok hunters, tho sort of
men who go shoot ing partridges and
snipe with a rifle, and therefore easily
to be made into mounted infantry of a

LONDON & B. G. GOLDFIELDS.
A Gratifying Report From the Annual
General Meeting.
The Miner has received a copy of the
Directors' report and statement of ao
counts of the London & Britisli Columbia Qoldllelds to Dec. 81. ISM), as submitted at the annual general meeting
held on the 7th inst. With the exception of the effects of the labor troubles,
which interfered with the Company's
operations, the report is one of unvarying success mid satisfaction throughout.
It is not surprising that the Hoard
should testify as they do 'to the aide
manner in which the company's inter,
cats have been guarded and served by
Mr. J. Roderick Robertson, Manager,
Mr. B, K. Fowler, Chief Engineer and
the local stall' generally during the
past year."
The Oompauy's interests and properties comprise the Ymir, Whitewater,
the Enterprise, the Ruth aud the Yukon (ioldllelds, represented by shares;
(he Alma group, adjoining the Ymir,
and the Norfolk and the New York
claims, owned outright; tbe Cymric
aud Mountain Belle groups, under op.
tion.and the Cascade Water Power and
Light franchise. Operations during
the year were seriously interrupted in
consequence of the strike, which oon-
rinued from' 1st of June last year to the
middle of February: but now that it is
over the Company expect thnt the current year will more than make up for
the sot-back of lust year. The accounts
cover a period of ten months only, owing to the necessity of reconstructing
in March, 1K0D. because of the conversion of deferred into ordinary shares-
During that period the Company's operations show n profit by ��27,25(1, out
of which a dividend of 18 per cent, is
recommended, Of this sum over ��20,-
01)0 were earned in the Ymir mine.
TheOompany are confident of a valuable property in the Enterprise. Ore
in sight is estimated at $145,1100, and a
consulting engineer, Mr. Kendall, reports that the mine is worth a million
dollars, even under present method of
working. All the properties show
good values and proipccts, aud tbe
Company are certainly to lie congratulated on the!, possessions.

at   the    Provincial
Capital.
THE DOG POISONEK.
P. It. 0. Beer has succeeded in solv-
ving the mystery in connection with
the death by poisoning of several dogs
iu Nelson one week ago last Saturday
The drug used was cyanide of polos
shun and it waB purehased at Toct/.el's
drug store on April 20th by a man win
used it in pi,li:.I,ing silverware. Tin
man's name is known but as thero is
no evidence sufficient to convict him it
will not he made public here. Tho
poison was carried in small bottles and
in using it portions of the solution was
dropped to tho street. The odor attracts dogs and they invariably lick it
up. Its effect is dendly, more deadly
than a two per cent solution of
piussic add. Au analysis of the intestines of one of t tie dogs poisoued
showed the poison to lie cyanide of potassium and tlie subsequent investigation developed the alaive facts. The
man responsible came to Nelson from
Calgary and went from here to Grand
Forks. He is now iu tho Boundary
country.

president of tbe Albernie Liberal Association, has been selected as a government oandidate tbere.
D. W. Higgins issues a card to the
electors of Esquimalt, in whioh he
soliolts their support as an opponent of

the provincial ownership of railways,
tbe giving of large tracts of land and
sums of money to railways and other
corporations, and tbe passage of any
law that may injuriously affect tbe
rights of free miners and aotnal settlers on railway lands. He also favors
government assistance in exploring and
opening up newly discovered mining
sections, strong measures tor tbe suppression of Oriental immigration, the
cancellation of land and other grants
where the requirements of the oharters

grants of moneys for roads and a more

wants no more agitation and its
consequent disturbance of business.
The remainder of the address is
of an eminently practical character,
and refers to subjects in respect to
which all good citizens desire to
have early legislation on the lines
he recommends and, if elected,
would support. He is as opposed
as any of us to the threatened Mongolian invasion, but to avert it he
does not think it necessary or prudent to fly in the face of the Imperial and Federal authorities.
That would do no good; but it
would keep tip turmoil in the Province, and of this we have had
enough. Electors who are more
concerned for the public welfare
than for the gratification of personal
rivalries and ambitions will conclude from Mr. Fletcher's address
that he would be a safe man to send
to the Legislature,
A  RUM   SORT OF  A   PARTYl
A SAFE CANDIDATE.
Mr. Fletcher's address will take
rank with the best yet issued. It
is that of a man who does not think
it necessary, or consistent with the
dignity of a Parliamentary candidate, to resort to claptrap to catch
���the votes of the ignorant and unreflecting. He appeals to the intelligence of the electorate, and
will abide its verdict. There is
nothing of the demagogue in his
address; he does not count on
class prejudices, and makes no
effort to excite them. He stands
for a sound, fair, and honest business administration of the affairs of
the Province. He is qu'te as Provincial as the party that appropriates that name, but is neither a believer in nor supporter of factions.
There are two great parties in the
country, and he is the nominee ol
one of them. His fealty is not to
an individual, but to the principles
of the party he represents. For his
good faith and loyalty and integ
rity as a member of the Legislature
he offers the guarantee of that
party's record and reputation. That
is safer to accept than any irresponsible personal guarantee.
Like all observing men who have
an interest in the country, Mr.
Fletcher has seen the evils of hasty
and ill-considered legislation. Mining development in the placer regions of Northern British Columbia
has been paralysed by an Act to
exclude aliens, and the manner of
introducing an eight-hour day in
the working of our metalliferous
mines has caused incalculable injury. Mine workers, traders, merchants, manufacturers, and all
others fully realise how necessary it
is to encourage the investment of
capital in these mines if flic country
is ever to be developed, but the
legislation of the past fifteen months
has had the effect of driving it away.
Such mischief as it has wrought has
come   home   to  all  of us.    To the
One of the speakers at the Houston fai ce-comedy that has been dignified with the name of a convention said the Provincial Party was
"the only party worthy of being
called a party." It is said that this
statement was followed with applause. Out on the Coast they call
it the People's Provincial Party, and
it is supposed to represent what is
left of the Semlin party. After the
prorogation of the Legislature Mr.
Semlin resigned the leadership, and
Mr. Cotton became his heir. The
Provincial party, therefore, is
otherwise known as the Cotton
party.
This is the parly that is described
to be the only real party in the
Province. Let us see how real it is.
Mr. Cotton is not yet a candidate
for any constituency, and it is believed that he has no intention of
offering as a candidate. Without
Mr. Cotton the party is headless.
Mr. Cotton's late colleagues in the
Government may be said to have
formed the body. Mr. Semlin is
not a candidate, having retired to
his farm; Mr. Hendeison is not a
candidate, having been dropped by
his former political friends in New
Westminster; Mr. Hume is not a
candidate, having succumbed to
cruel circumstances; Mr. McKech-
nie is not a candidate, having concluded that private life is more to
his taste. Not a single member of
the late Government is a candidate,
or will be in the next Legislature.
There is no head and no body.
The followers in the late House
comprise the tail of this beautiful
bird, but it is so bedraggled that a
description of it is out of the question. Several members of it are now
candidates in opposition to both Mr.
Cotton and Mr. Martin; several
others have deserted Mr. Cotton
and are running as Martin candidates; others again have dropped
out, and will never more be heard
of. The number of the old followers who are candidates in this election as members of the Cotton
party could be counted on the fingers of one hand. Instead of being
the only one real party, the truth is
that the Cotton party has gone to
pieces, and there is no influence on
earth strong enough to revive it.
The man who is running as a Cotton or Provincial Party candidate
is necessarily an impostor. He is
seeking election with the view of
going to the Legislature to sell h
support to the highest bidder.
With Dr. Hall's address before
them, as published in this morning's
Miner, the situation in the Nelson
Riding may be said to have reached
its full   development.      It    is    not
eight-hour  day  itself there can be j thought therp  will be   an  avowed
no objection, and if it had been introduced with discretion it would
have been quietly accepted and
there would have been no disturbance of the prosperous conditions
that prevailed a year ago, Now
that it has been established Mr.
Fletcher loyally accepts it, and
promises not only to oppose any
change in   respect to  it, but  sug-
Martin candidate, and the electors
may now proceed to make their
choice. Dr. Hall is more of a Labor candidate than Ralph Smith
himself, and if he fails to capture
that vote we shall have to conclude
that there is no virtue in professions.
In other respects his address is like
most of the others. In deciding between the three in Nelson the intelli-
gests that the principle be extended gent, calculating elector will regard
to apply to the case of all other j the men behind the addresses and
wage earners. But for the good . make choice of the one who is most
of the country, which means the | likely to be in a position to command
good of all   the people in it, lie attention in the Legislature.   Mr,
Houston stands for a parly thai exists only in the imagination; Dr. Hall
defines himself as an Independent
Liberal, but there is no organisation
of Independent Liberals; Mr.
Fletcher alone has a living and
breathing party, capable of actual
achievement in both legislation and
administration.
The Montreal Witness, a leading
Liberal newspaper of Eastern Canada, says Mr, Martin's demagogue
policy as exemplified in his platform
is "doubtless popular with (he unthinking classes." This is true,
but why should there bean unthinking class in British Columbia? Do
we not all see on every side of us
evidence enough of a necessity to
do the very best thinking of which
we are capable? If we want peace,
with prosperity in its wake, we
must rescue the Government from
the hands ol demagogues and agitators. The times are too critical
to permit us to bolt platforms without thinking.
The Vancouver World feels constrained to refer to Mr. Deane as
"the usurper of the seat of North
Yale." Mr. Deane was aided and
abetted in usurping that seat by
Mr. Martin, who introduced an Act
to make him the member contrary
to law. At the time The World assailed both Mr. Deane and Mr.
Martin. It has since gone over to
Mr. Martin, but Mr. Deane has not.
He is a usurper, but the greater of
fender, Mr. Martin, is the patriot
and [statesman whose innocence
gladdens The World's heart.
Apostate newspapers have curious
experiences.

I
To the Electors of the Nelson
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District :
Gbntlemen���As the nominee of the
Conservative party I beg to oiler myself
as a candidate at the coming general
eleotion to represent you iu the Legislative Assembly of this Province.
The time hns nrrived when all parties
are fully alive to the fact that the future
welfare of our Province demands a
sound, fair and honest business administration aud that any great popular
Party must appeal to other and
higher considerations thnn those of individual feur of loss, or hope of gain,
I oousider it the duty of every member
elected, to be a Proviucinlist to tho extent of the best iuterests of the Province
first, last and always, and to support nil
good legislation with Hint object in view
In askiug yon for your support, I will
state thnt I am opposed to hasty legislation of any kiud, but particularly with
respeot to our Mining Laws, ns tending
fo'jeopardize business interests aud to divert capital: for instance, twice the Legislature has passed Alien Exclusion
Laws and tbey are now for the second
time seeking to repeal them nfter having
done considerable mischief.aud damage.
With regard to the Eight-Hour Law, I
am opposed to nuy change in the law
as it now stands.
Shorter hours for all classes of labor
is no new idea, but in my opinion the
principle should bo such ns to appeal to
all Sections of the Community as being
not only a necessity nnd beneficial to all,
but in keeping with the general advancement of our civilization.
I would advocnte the amendment nnd
strict enforcement of the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, so ns to more effectually proteot the lives ot workmen.
With regard to tbe Mineral Aot: I
would endeavor to hnve certain sections
more dearly defined, for this purpose of
avoiding litigatinu ; and with regard to
co-ownership, to introduce uu inexpensive aud speedy mode of making a co-
owner bear bis share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am in favor of an amendment to our
Sohool Lnws so ns to give Cities tbe control of the .Schools in their midst.
A fair Redistribution Aot should be
passed as soon as possible.
I would advocate tho bringing into
force of the Torren's Act, provided it is
made optional ; lis tho cost iu a great
many cases will lie excessive and out of
all proporiiou to any benefit to bu derived,
I would urge the speedy const ruction
of a Court House in Nelson, equal to
the requirements of this dintrint,
I would strongly advocate increased
tirsnls for Roads, Trails and Bridges
wherever such will upbuild nnd develop,'
our Proviuce, more ..specially iu the
Mining Districts, nud nil such expenditure to bo placed ill cnpnble and experienced bands to bo dealt Willi in a
systematic way.
Our undeveloped natural resources
should receive morn attention, nnd be
more widely advertised in order to idlrnct
capital.
With regurd lo cheap foreign labor I
lielicve, when, the ,'enifily is an Imperial
matter, iu view of the stand OUT Province
and Country has tnken in the present win
giving both livrs and money, the desired
end nan l���- gnined if properly sought,
without bringing about ��� serious misunderstanding with tho Dominion Government and entailing deplorable agitation
ns wo require pence nnd prosperity in our
midst.
I am opposed to any clique or faction
of political agitators whose principal aim
is to embarrass nnd retard the business
of the Province for purely personal h,I-
vsnoement.
I strongly condemn the actions of the
Lieut.-(lovoruoi ns being nn Invasion ,,f
the principle of responsible government
and a misuse of his power under our
Constitution,
Yours respictful'y,
FRANK ELICTCIIER.
Nelson, 11th May, 1000,
To the Electors of Nelson
Riding, West Kontenay
District:
Gentlemen.���In response to numerously signed requisitions asking me to
be a candidate for the Provincial Legislature at the forthcoming eleotion, 1
have consented to entor the oonteBt as
nn Independent Liberal.
I have the honor, therefore to solicil
your votes and influence, and if elected I shall do my utmost to secure for
tho Province honest, economical aud
progressive government.
A brief outline of some of tho principles which I think should be embodied in the Legislative Aots is given
holow.
I havo tbo honor to be gontlemnu,
Your obedient servant,
G. A. B. HALL.
1. The principle of eight hours constituting a legal day's work should he
recognized and strictly enforced.
2. Steps should immediately .be
taken through tbe proper channels to
prevent the immigration into this
country of Chinese aud Jnpaneso labor-
ers.
li. Two dollars and a half per day
should bo the minimum wage of unskilled labor throughout the Province
on all government works.
���1. A fair wage bill should be iniro
duced requiring the payment of standard wages ou all works to which the
Province contributes subsidies or aid
in any form.
6. The establishment of a labor
bureau under the direction of a Minister of the Crown, whose duty it shall
be among other things, to collect luhor
statistics, and to act as a mediator
between employers and workmen in
all oases of actual or threatened
strikoB with power to call and examine witnesses and oompol diuclouoro
of all material faots in connection
with such disputes.
li. I believe that trunk roads should
be built and maintained by tho government and encoaragement given to
miners , to extend these roads. Such
work should be directed by competent
government engineers. Where trails
nro required to single or small groups
of claims the cost of suoh trails, if
built by the cluim owners on the approval and under direction of a government inpsector or engineer, shall
apply as  assessment  upon the claims.
7. Government ownership of all
telegraph systems and railways whore
practicable by construction or purchase.
N. The establishment of technical
schools for metallflerouB miners in
oonnootiou with smelters at different
points in the Piovince.
9. To draw the attention of capitalists and investors to British Columbia
as a desirable centre for profitable
mining operations by suitable advertisement and by the appointment of
a speoial agent at Loudon nnd elsewhere whosej services shall be free and
equally available for all owners of
British Colombia properties.
10. To enoonrage the ostablishmont
nt suitable points iu British Culum-
bin of
(n)   Steel and iron works.
(b) Shipbuilding yards.
(c) Additional   smelters and   refineries.
11. The retaining of the resources
of tbo Province as an msot for the
benefit of tho people, and taking effective measures to prevent tho alienation
of the public domain, oxcept to actual
settlors or for bona fido businesi or industrial pnrposss, thus putting nn end
to the practice of speculating in the
same.
I'i. The taking of active measures
for the systematic exploration of the
Province, including a government survey of tho province by sections and
the preparation of accural,, mid cheap
maps in ncoordiiiire with suoh   survey.
ill.   Tho  interests  of tho Province
can   ho   best   served   by   a permanent
civil service, appointments to wbieh
should he mail,' by reason of merit and
not of politioal iiilluence.
II. All unoccupied lands in the Province should bo open to bona fldo settlers at fair prices which shall be de
elded upon by a government hind agent
or valuator, and belter taoilitles should
be given fin nrqiiiring small arens for
establishment of market gardous and
homesteads.
IS, Whom mineral claims are held
by joint owners nud whnri, one or
morn of nnnh owners refuses to con
tribute towards tho annual assessment
work, provision should ho mudo in the
Mineral Act for the nalo of the interest of such delinquent   owner.
in. The abolition of tin, deposit by
candidate* for tbe legislature.
Redistribution of the constituencies
on an equitnbln basis.
