Mr. Frank Fletcher and W. A. Macdonald had 11 most enthusiastic meeting at Oreston on Monday night and
met with splendid receptions at the
other points visited by them'. Mr.
Fletcher's campaign is progressing
Splendidly and neither he nor his supporters have the slightest doubt of his
election. During the past few days a
large number of woikiugmen have
called at the committee rooms and

DEFEAT
All Signs Show That Will Be
the Fate of Premier
Martin.
Ralph Smith's address iu Fraternity
Ball on Monday night was the .sole
topic of political discussion in Nelson
yesterday. All agreed that it was a
splendid effort and one of the best
political addresses ever heard in Nelson. Nearly all agreed, too, that
whatever the effect of it would lie Dr.
Ball would Ixj the gainer. Instead of
aiding Mr. Houston In his campaign,

had this end In view when   he   spoke.
lie made himself quite plain when
be declared that the workingiuan
could serve his best interests by voting for an Independent candidate, a
candidate not affiliated with any
political party. Mr. Houston, ns the
candidate of the Provincial Party,
can not claim that in making this remark Mr. Smith bad in mind the
Mayor of Nelsou. On the other hand
Dr. Hall could make such claim and
very properly so. As an Independent
workingnian's candidate he can
rightfully lay claim to the support of
those who are inclined to follow the
advice of Mr. Smith. Not only this,
but the addresses of Mr. Smith and
Dr. Hall to the electors in their respective ridings arc almost identical.
If Dr. Hall and Mr. Smith are both
elected to the Provincial House, and
they should both fulfill the promises
they have made, they would stand
alike upon almost every question
raised.
That Mr. Houston and his followers
were both surprised and disappointed
with Mr. Smith's address was quite
apparent. They had attended the
meeting prepared to listen to many
words of praise of the Provincial
Party candidate. They expected this
because Mr. Houston had been the
first man called upon when Mr. Smith
and his party arrived in the city on
Sunday night. It was "Bob" Hen-
wick, Mr. Houston's right-hand man,
who made all arrangements for the
Monday night meeting, und it was
natural therefore that Mr. Houston
and bis followers should expect Mr.
Smith to speak in support of "The
Peoples' John."
But during Monday Mr. Smith
spent some time about town
although he was closely watched
throughout the day hy the Houston
men, Hi is being done in au effort to
prevent him from being buttonholed
by any of the Hall forces. But Mr.
Smith broke away and conferred with
several residents in Nelson who were
at one time neighbors of his in Nan-
aimo. He asked in regard to Mr.
Houston and hy nightfall bad concluded that His Worship, if sent to
Victoria would prove a very troublesome customer and of little benefit to
the workingmen or to any other class
of men. For this reason he .-banged
his plans for the evening and by in-
ference left the impression with the
workingmen of Nelson that if they
would follow his advice they would
c��st their ballot for Dr. Hall.
After the meeting on Monday night
Messrs. Smith, Hawthornthwnite,
Woodman, Ihe Nanaimo gentlemen,
Dr. Hall, Mayor Houston, Dr. Arthur,
Q. Frank Beer, W. A. Galliher and
John H. Matheson joined in a love
feast at the Nelson cafe. The visitors
were the guests of Dr. Arthur and Q.
Frank Beer. It was a very quiet and
peaceful affair after the warm finish at
Fraternity Hall, hut it was noticed
that Dr. Hall and His Worship exchanged no words.   Dr. Arthur was

that if they did not want to vote for

(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Ymir, May 22���A meeting of Liberals
of this city was beld last night with J.
Ross in tlie chair and J. A. Paul acting
as secretary. The most important
feature of the meeting was a motion
made by Mr. Burgess and seconded hy
Mr. Snyder that the Liberals of Ymir
endorse Dr. Hall ns the Liberal candidate in the coming election. The motion was carried unanimously. It is
thought that Dr. Hall will poll fully
eighty por cent of the votes in this

ORESTON    MEETING.
Mr. Frank Fletcher tbe Conservative candidate, aocompanied by W. A.
Macdonald, visited the Goat Kivei
District yesterday and after canvassing
Eitobener held it meeting in the evening at Oreston.
The entire electorate turned ont and
gave a good hearing to the speakers.
Mr. Fletcher fully explained his position nnd the stand he wonld take in
Parliament on the in.I.lie questions of

tbe sentiment that a good stable government was what the oonntry needed,

progress and prosperity as opposed to
agitation, adversity and stagnation.

Victoria, B. C, May 22.���Premier
Martin was rotten egged at the Sooke
meeting last evening and is meeting
with a general frost in his campaign
on the islund.
Addressing a public meeting in this
city last night, Mr. Turner, one of
the candidates for tbe representation of
Victoria iu the Legislature, aud formerly the Premier of the Province,
mode charges such as have never before been made in the Dominion of
Canada against those high in authority. Referring to what occurred
nt the Wellington meeting, Mr. Turner said Mr. W. W. B. Melnnes had
stated that "Mr. Turner and his myrmidon" bad solicited him to take a
position in the tloverninent. He
(Mr. Turner) felt astonished at this remark, and went to Mr. Melnnes and
the chairman and stated that Mr.
Melnnes' remarks was false. He had
been so astonished at the nerve of the
man, when he bod witnesses to prove
that he (.Melnnes) hail come down to
his (the speaker's) office to make
arrangements to get his brother into
the (Jovernment and to bring over two
supporters to Mr. Turner,
Mr. Turner then related the circum
stances iu connection with the Private
Secretary's visit to him at tbe Financo
Department iu connection with the effort to get his brother into the Government. He had asked Mr. Turner
"Have you had a letter from the Goy-
ernor?" "Yes I am just reading it
again lo get to the bottom of it," said
Mr. Turner. "I wrote it," was the reply of the Private Seoretary- "I am
the Governor's adviser ia suoh matters
and there is no way out of the difficulty."
Mr. Melnnes then went on to make
the offer of his brother's support and
said: "My brother would like to see
you about it and arrange it. I would
like to have a meeting and disouts the
situation." Mr. Turner in order to
make sure that he wonld have witnesses, proposed a meeting in town and
said "1 would like him to call at my
office in town."
On going to town he made arrangements with his bookkeeper to he present. This was a witness whioh Mr. Turner could produce at any time. During
the conversation Mr. Molnnes proposed
that he could run forCowichan and Mr-
Turner had said to him: "Mr. Melnnes
we have certain line of polioy, will you
accept this?" and at the same time had
asked bim lo give him tbe names of the
suppoiters whom he was to bring over.
This Mr Melnnes would not do, and
was told by Mr.,Turner that they should
at least write or call and se�� him, aud
Mr. .Melin.en then withdrew, promising
to see his friends and call again, A few
days later bo called and said that he
would not give any names, but thought
be could iu a few days more give tbe
names required. Tbe next day tbe letter of dismissal was received from tbe
Governor.
Great preparations are being made
for tbe Queen's Birthday celebration,
which will the graudest in tbe history
of the oity.
Ottawa, May 22.���The proceedings
iu the House at the opening stage utility were of a rather pleasing character. On the desk in front of the scat
of the leader of the Opposition there
was a basket of roses. It was placed
there on account of the day being the
forty-fifth anniversary of the entrance
of Sir Charles Tapper into public
life. As soon as Sir Charles entered
the Boose be  was greeted with ap-
plause which   was  given ns heartily
and freely from the   Government side
as fi-uiii that of the Opposition,
Tlm leader of the House Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, joined in the demonstration
and a number of Liberal members
called to .Sir Charles to give a speech.
A few minutes later the leader of the
Opposition acceded to this request.
Sir Chiules said: "Mr. Speaker, I am
going to ask for a few minutes in order
to thank the House for the very kind
manner iu which I was rcccivod here
today by both sides. I am touched by
the kind manner in which my friends
on this side of tho House have marked
the completion of the fnrty-Bflh year
of my publio life, and not leps so by the
very generous manner in which the
same sentiment has been cvinoed by
those to whom I am opposed politically. I may sny Sir, that I was elected
to represent my native oounty, Cumberland, Nova Scotia, on the 22nd day
of May, 1855. That I hnve been eu-
gsged in the active practico of the
medical profession for 29 yeni-s and
that I have hod the good or bad fortune to bold the highest offices in my
native Province and in the Dominion
of Canada for 25 yenrs of my public
life. I think almost every person will
believe thnt unless I were a great glutton of office and its emoluments, 1
ought to be abundantly satisfied witb
the past."
Sir Wilfrid Lnurier then said:
" Though I have no right to speak in
this House, except for one side of it, ou
this occasion I voice tbe sentiment not
cot ouly of those present, but of tbe
Canadian people, in congratulating the
lender of tbe Opposition iu com
pleting the forty-fifth year of his service
to his country. It in one the blessing-,
of political life among us, that it is possible sometimes to foiget that wo are divided in opinion. It is one of the blessings and redeeming features of public
life that, though our strife is keen and
sometimes bitter, still nf vr all we can
realize that above all there is a noble
sentiment thnt actuates it all. I am
proud nud glsd lo bear Ibis testimony to
the public care of my honorable friend,
that it will live and stand for the best I
in the history of Canada. We
hail with delight the fact that he
is to lead his party in the next election. I am conscious of the great influence and strung personalty he exercises, but in spite of that Influence
and seeing the justice of the cause we
represent, I heartily wish he will
remaij where he Is to long adorn the
Canadian Parliament.    (Applause).

London,   May 23.���,1:30   a. m.���The
Transvaal Government has  Infori 1
the correspondents at Pretoria, that
it has not considered and does nut
intend to consider unconditional surrender, but will light to a UniBh. The
foreign consuls buve been Informed
that Johannesburg will be defended
and the Government announces that it
will not hold itself responsible for
injury to persons or property resulting
from the defense. Pretoria despatches
affirm that President Kruger, President Steyn and all the prominent
leaders of tbe Republics after a prolonged interchange of views nre determined to continue the resistance,
but that a minority of the leaders
advocate surrender without terms.
Johannesburg nnd Pretoria are being
cleared ot non-combatants. The Boer
chiefs now recognize the possibility
tbat they will have to defend these
cities, aud are preparing with tbe utmost haste. The Boers'spirit has bean
rising from a low ebb and is now
ready for a steadfast resistance. Nevertheless, according to the Daily
Chronicle, long messages in Dutch,
have been received by the British
Government, by way of Amsterdam,
in whioh President Krnger seeks peace
and acoording to one account, President
Kroger surrenders unconditionally.
Tbe Boers are blasting for emplacements along the Rhonoster River.
General Dewet commands, ns General
Botha is ill. Tbe advance of Lord Roberts will probably be swift. It is the expectation of well informed observers that
the Vssl River, 85 miles beyond Kroonstadt, will probably bo crossed by tbe
end of tbe week. Sir Rodvers lliiller, in
a general order to his troops congratulating them" on the result of tbeir ten
days' operation, says they were only
checked at Laing's Nek by s fresh commando sent from the Transvul. General
Clery witb a cavalry brigade entered the
rear guard of the liners at Lning's Nek
on Sunday and coptuied s number of
wagons end took soma prisoners. His
artillery shelled tbe Nek. The Boers iu
tbeir retreat laid waste the territory ami
burned several houses, as many as six
in Newcastle. The mackiucry of the
navigation oollieries was mined.
General Uuller, replying to the President of Newcastle, who presented to
him a trophy, said he expected to return frotn Pretoria siiou. Nothing
new concerning the relief of Mafeking
has come through. All the accounts
of the engagement of May HI, extol the
bravery of the Canadians. Colonel
Mahon's column arrived at the camp
one hour after Colonel Plumer, showing with what accuracy the movements
were timed.
Sir Alfred Miluer, speaking before an
eni.riiious assemblage celebrating the
relief of Mafeking, referred to the remark of a previous spunker who In..I
condemned the Doers as "cowardly
scoundrels." Hesuiil there nre men
among our enemies who deserve to be
honored for their bravery. Although
cases of treachery and barbarity have
occurred, they have been exceptional.

Tho Times says: "The Boer delegates iu the United States have bad an

a right to expeot from the Chief Magistrate of a great friendly nation. It's
just as well, as things have turned

frankly declares his intention of using every effort to elect enough labor candidates to hold the balance
of power in the next House, and
thus be ina position to dictate terms
to the party that will carry on the
Government." So far as can be
learned from the reports of his
speech in Nelson, Mr. Smith did
not indicate by look or word, not
even by a wink, which of those
candidates he was disposed to regard as the labor candidate.
A more inconsequential visit, so far
as the public are allowed to judge,
was never made. He pounded poor
Martin, who was as dead as a door
nail before he came, and although
pleading for labor gave no indication of his candidate. If it were
not that Mr. Smith is a pleasant
sort of gentleman, and can deliver
an interesting speech, he might just
as well have stayed away.
WHAT CAME HE OUT FOR TO
SEE?
It was hardly necessary that Mr.
Ralph Smith should have taken the
trouble to come all the way from
Nanaimo to Nelson to flog a dead
horse. It was even worse than that,
as, for all Nelson is concerned, the
poor carcass he was Hogging never
had any life in it. His whole speech,
from beginning to end, was an attack on Mr. Martin. He gave a
number of reasons why the Premier
and his Government should not be
sustained, and it can be said to Mr.
Smith's credit that every one of
them was sound and well put. But it
was labor wasted. If Mr. Houston
persists in repudiating Mr. Martin,
there is no one else in Nelson who
will have a word to say in his defence, There is no politician in the
Nelson Riding with a reputation to
make or save who would dare stand
on a public platform and recommend
the Martin Government for the en-
dorsation of the people. Mr. Martin is as dead here as if he had never
existed.
We do not suppose there is the
remotest likelihood that Mr. Martin
can secure supporters enough in the
Province to keep him in power, Down
to the present time he has eighteen
candidates all told, and there are
over thirty-eight constituencies. He
would be short ol a majority if all
were elected. It is possible that
there are Martin candidates in disguise. There are those in Nelson
who say that Mr. Houston would
give him his support il parlies were
so balanced that lie could make profitable merchandise of his vole. Anil
Mr. Houston never tires of saying
that Dr. Hall is really the Martin
candidate. Even under the protection of disguise, we do not believe
that it could be possible to Mr. Martin to muster strength enough to
control the next Legislature. But
should either Dr. Hall or Mr. Houston be elected, and afterwards hold
up a hand for Mr. Martin, he would
never dare come back to this Riding
and ask an assemblage of electors
to approve of what he had done.
Why, then, should Mr. Ralph Smilli
have come to Nelson to oppose a
Premier who is so unpopular that
no one has the courage to say a
word lor him ?
Mr. Smith has two companions,
also from Nanaimo. When starling
out to join his chief at Vancouver
The Nanaimo Fress Press, in commenting on their mission to the
Mainland,    said;     " Mr.     Smith
Mr. Ralph Smith wants enough
labor candidates returned to hold
the balance of power. Does that
mean that Mr. Ralph Smith wants
the legislation for this Province of
British Columbia to be under the
control and at the mercy of Mr,
Edward Boyce, of Montana, the
gentleman who believes in Unions
that are armed with rifles? No
doubt Mr. Smith would repudiate
a suggestion of this kind, but it is
no secret now that Mr, Boyce has
already interfered with British Columbia legislation and to some purpose. It is also no secret that
Mr. Smith was one of the members
who willingly submitted to Mr.
Boyce's influence, and did all in his
power to encourage and strengthen
it. It will be better for labor in
this Province, for capital, and for
all other legitimate interests if there
shall be no "balance of power" in

Speaking at Port Haney the
other night, Mr, Charles Wilson
said : "A remarkable proof of the
inadvisability of the old personal
form of Government was the abrupt
dissolution of the late Semlin party.
It was now called Cottonism, but
where was it ? It was practically
dead ; in fact, it only mustered two
or three candidates : Mr. Kidd, in
Richmond; Mr. Deane, of Kam-
loops; Mr. Forster, of Delta;
and Mr. Cotton. And of these
four, it was improbable one would
be elected." Mr. Wilson overlooked
our own Mr. Houston, who prides
himself on being all Cotton, a yard
and a half wide. But including
him will not increase the chances of
electing a Cotton party, for Mr.
Houston is already a defeated candidate. Nelson has almost as small
liking for Cottonism as for Martin
ism. The fight here is between
Mr, Fletcher and Dr. Hall, with
the odds just now pretty strongly
in favor of Mr, Fletcher.
Mr. Houston has lost much of
his old astuteness if he did not
have it borne in on him al th
meeting on Monday night that he
is fast becoming a back number in
Nelson, lie has accustomed himself to believe I hat tbe people here
cannot get along' without him ;
whether in their Provincial or
municipal relations, he has regarded
himself as necessary to them ; to
advise, to act for them, and to see
that they did not fall into pits.
But on Monday night he must have
realised that the people of Nelson
have at last got to believe that
there are others.

GENERAL HOSPITAL.
New Wing  Formally  Opened Yesterday Alternoon.
YeBteiday afternoou the new wing of
the General Hospital was formally
opened by an alternoon tea, given by
the Ladles Hospital Aid. The entertainment was attended by ao many of
Nolson's representative people that it
is almost impossible to give a list of
those present. From three o'olook until five, tbe hours of the tea, there was
11 oonstant stream of peoplo coming
and going, and all who were there expressed themselves as highly pleased
witb the interior of the Hospitnl, both
the old and new partB, which was
thrown open for the inspeotion of all
the visitors.
Mrs. R. W. Day, the President of
tbe Ladies' HoBpitnl Aid aud Mrs.
Hamilton Byers, Seoretary, roceived,
assisted by Mrs. W. W. beer aud Mrs.
C. E. Miller. During the ufternoon
tea, coffee, sandwiohes and cako of all
kinds were served and Herr jjteiner's
iirnheHt.rii furnished a mast ontertuiniug
programme, whioh was greatly enjoyed by all present. Contributions of
doners were reoeived from Mrs.
Wokes, Mr. Grizzel, the florist, aud Mr.
Harrold Selous, The flowers were tastefully arranged in the reoeption room
and wards and were greatly npprecintcd
by the patients, who seemed to enjoy
the affair as much us those who came as
visitors. The chief nurse, Miss Desliri-
iiay, and her assistants, Miss McKeen
aud Miss Fraser, aud Dr. Doherty, the
Burgeon in charge, were most accommodating in showing tbe visitors the
various parts of the hospital, aud ou all
sides were praises bestowed for the excellent condition of the institution, especially to Miss DesBrisay is grent
credit due for the perfect order which
marks the whole regime,
Id the new wing, whioh was tho object
of especial attention, is the women's
ward, whioh wus furnished by the Ladies Hospital Aid, the private wind which
was furnished by the Order of fc'niut Andrew, and a thoroughly equipped operating room. The hospital, us it now
is, will compare most favorably with any
institution of its kind iu tbe country,
and from a professional point of view
ranks high ns to general fitness and ex
eellence. The directors can well afford to be well pleased with the institution as it appealed yesterday. Some
of those piesent yesterday showed
their interest by asking if there were
nothing needed that could be contributed by those who were interested. Any
mil! who desii i's to make nn appropriate and appreciable gift will be gluil to
learn that a small library mid some
eosy chairs for-the patients -would be
greatly appreciated, und also that
there was some talk yesterday of presenting a piano to the institution. In
fact any article that would tend to increase the comfort of the patients
would be alwuys acceptable.
During the afternoon addresses were
made by Judge Forin and Messrs,
W. W. Beer, F. W. Swan-ell and J.
Laing-Stocks.
GAMP   MANSFIELD.
South Fork of Knslo Creek and there
is moie activity there this spring than
ever before. The Paotoltia Hold Mines
of Nelson, has largely increased its
stall' of nii-ii. The snow is all off the
six claims in the group and surface
work is showing the veins up in a highly satisfactory manner. The Champion claim is proving very rich and
ore from it assays rich in gold and silver. Representatives of the l'actolus
company were assured by Mr. Sinitli-
t'lU'tis that the Wflgon road to the
claims would lie finished Ibis summer.
He said that any Government would
recognize the necessity of a road to
open such a rich region and its building
should certainly rot depend on the result of the olectious,
"BLUE EIBBON TEA IS DELICIOUS.'
LOCAL AND   PERSONAL
Work Is Progressing Rapidly.���The
Joker Proving Exceptionally Rich.
W. E. Boie, who is in charge of
Ernest MuiiBnVld's operations in Camp
Mansfield, has spent a couple of days
iu the city and left yesterday for the
camp. He received cable instructions
yesterday from Mr. Mansfield to continue the development work as rapidly
as possible and to increase the number
of men whenever work can be found
for them. The four long tunnels
being driven are progressing as well
as the nature of the work allows. When
they were measured at the middle of
the month the Twin Lakes tunnel was
in 233 feet, the Marguerite 210. the
Bertha 231 and the Tony ltiH. During
the past few days the Twin Lakes has
improved greatly and is Dialling ore
rapidly. The values are high in gold
and silver. New buildings have been
erected and the men are as comfortable
bb any in the Kootenay. There is
still about four feet of snow on the
level in Camp Mansfield which ranges
In height from 7,il00 feet to over 8,000,
Tlie Joker, the principal property in
the camp, continues to improve in a
highly satisfactory manner und it is
becoming more apparent every day
that it Is one of the richest properties
In the country. The ledge Is BO feet
���wide aud contains three pay chutes
of from two to four feet in width.
The best ore assays up into the hundreds of dollars and the ledge matter
runs from eight to ten dollars to the
ton which is sufficient value to Allow
the whole ledge to be milled at a
very large profit. Recently six assays
of Joker ore were made. Tin- lowest
was over J300 and the highest over
$li00. This Is about, in keeping with
one of the first assays made of
Joker ore when It went Hi)
ounces in gold or 81200 to tin-
ton. When the machinery to trial
the ore is installed this summer tho
Joker will become one of the big dividend payers and tho English and
French capitalists who have invested
so heavily in the camp will receive
handsome returns.
Mr. Mansfield's operations have Riven a great Impi tun t0 mining up the
Mr. (.!. E. Miller will return from
the Boundary country today.
Registrar Wright yesterday issued a
marrlRge license to Charles Henry King
and Viola Belle Palmer.
The water in the lake has begun to
reoede us yestorday it was one inch
lower than the high murk reached on
Friday.
The stenm roller was employed yesterday in improving the road bed ou

been recently graded.

Mr. A. S. Farwell is hack in Nelson

PICTURES ARE GOOD.
Blograph Entertainment is a Splondld
One.
The entertainment given InBt night
by the blograph and Mr. Owe' Smiley,
whioh entertainment is to be repeated
this ufternoon and evening and tomorrow evening, is worthy of the patronage
of every citizen of Nelson, Aside from
the faot that 50 per cent of the proiits
of the enterprise is given to the Canadian Patriotic Fund, tbere is the satis-
footiou of knowing that one bus received the full value ot the mouey which he
has paid for admission. The pictures
are splendid and in some of tbem Nelson
p ople inav pick out faoes familar to
them. Ex-Winnipegers can see
the late Major Harry Arnold
marching with the Canadians in South
Africa and it is possible that close inspection might bring to light the
features of some of tbe Nelson boys.
Lord Roberts, Genernls Bnller and
White and other notables of tbe present war are seen walking on and off
shipboard and one oiui almost imagine
cheers ringing in bis eais as he sees
the throngs opon tbe dock wave tbeir
hats three times and then a tiger. Tbe
pictures take one (nun Halifax to
Sonth Afrioa, into Gen. Buller'B camp,
back to England, then ou a visit to
tbe Pope at Home, through the Hookies
and to almost every portion of the
globe, and all is shown with n remarkable vividness. Then there iB Mr.
Owen Mniiliy CnniiduV greatest elocutionist and humorist. Mr. Smiley
is good. He wins his andience
after he baa been on the stage hut a
moment and keeps on winning them
until the curtain drops. He is funny
and serious as the occasion requires
and takes his uuilieucc with him wherever he goes. Mr. Smiley and the Bio-
graph pictures make two good shoWB.
There will be a mntinee this afternoon and the school children will be
disinissrd a half hour earlier than usual
to allow them lo uttend: There will
also be a performance to night nud tomorrow night.

NELSON DAILY MINER. WEDNESDAY, MAV 23,   1900.
MK. PARK PROTESTS.
An Answer to an Article In Mr. Hous
ton's Paper.
Ymir, B. 0.. May 21st, 190(K
To tlie Editor Nelson Miner.
Dear .Sir���I notice in this morning's
issue of The Tribune nn article criticising Or. Hall, in which I lie writer refers
tome n�� a "chief boabter" itml calling
attention tn the fuel Hint I dined at
the Hume lintel with tlie Hon. Smith
Curtis. Well thai, is a thing I see no
reason to be ashamed of, But Mr.
Houston did not .record the fact that.
Mr- Qalllher, who is Mr. Houston's
chief booster, was also the guest of ,the
Hon. Smlth-CUrtis on that particular
occasion to which Mr. Hniisltui refers.
Now loan seu no reason why men cannot meet as gentleiiit-n, nn inaltirwhat
their political opinions are, or how
much they may differ on political
questions,
But this is emitliifv to the ob&raotel'
of Mr.   Houston as   is   eviilciiecd from
the   fact   that,    while   at    Ymir,   he
replied  with   insulting  remarks    to
voters who would not  promise   him a
vote.    That,   however, is his business.
On   the   other hand 1   Ihi.ili it   is the I
duty of   a good   citizen   to   meet any
official of the Government in a courteous manner nnd show in him the respect  due   him.   1   am  satisfied  that
Mr. Galliher looked al    1 lie invitation
of   the   Bon.   Smith   Curtis   in    that
light,  whieli is nn evidence of wisdom
on his part, the opinions ef his candidate to the contrary notwithstanding,
Trusting that you   will kindly publish these facts,   as 1   have no   other
organ through whieli to seek (airplay,
1 remain yours respectfully,
ALFRED PARK.

To the Electors of the Nelson
Riding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District ������
Hentlbukn���As  the nominee of the
Conservative parly I beg to offer myself
a candidate at the  ooming general
election to  represent yon iu the Logis-
Intive Assembly of this Provinoe.
Tbo time has arrived when all parties
are fully alive to the fuel tbat the future
welfare of our Provinoe demands a
sound, fair nud honest business administration and that nny great popular
Party must appeal to other and
higher considerations than those of individual fear of loss, or hope of gain.
I oonsidor it the duty of every member
eleoted, to be a Provincinlist to the extent of the best interests of the Provinoe
first, lust and always, and to support all
good legislation with that object iu view
In nekiug you for your support, I will
state that X am opposed to hnsty legislation of any kind, but particularly with
respect to our Mining Laws, ns tending
to'jeopardize business interests aud to divert oapital: for instance, twioe the Legislature has passed Alien Exclusion
Laws und they are now for the second
time seeking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief .and damage.

Shorter hours for all classes of labor
is no new idea, but in my opinion the
principle should be such as to appeal to
all Sections of the Community as being
not only a necessity nnd beneficial to all,
but in keeping witb the general advancement of our civilization.
I would udvooate the amendment and
atriot enforcement of the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Aot, so as to more effectually protect the lives of workmen.
With regard to the Minernl Aot: I
would endeavor to have certain sections
more clearly defined, for the purpose of
avoiding litigation ; aud with regard to
cn-nwiiership, to introduce an inexpensive aud speedy mode of making a co-
owner bear bis share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am iu favor of nn amendment to our
Seliiinl Laws so as to give Cities the control of the Schools in their midst.
A fnir Redistribution Aot should bo
passed as soon as possible.
I would advocate the bringing into
foroe of the Tori-en's Aot, provided it is
made optional ; ns the oost iu a great
many enses will be excessive and out of
all proportion to any benefit to be derived,

I would urge the speedy construction
of a Court House in Nelson, equal to

I would strongly advocate increased

ivhorever such will upbuild and develope
our Province, more especially in the
Mining Districts, and all such expenditure to be placed in capuhle nnd experienced hands to be denlt witb iu a

Our undeveloped nnturnl resources
should receive more attention, and be
