The Martin Government Overwhelmingly Defeated-Only Seven
Straight Government Supporters Succeed in
Winning Out.
Straight Conservatives Will Have the Biggest Following in the
New House, Thirteen of Them Having
Been Elected.
Vancouver, B. C, Jnne 9.���The Martin Government has "been overwhelmingly defeated
as a result of today's election for members of the Provincial Parliament. The Legislature
is composed of 38 members, and at midnight returns have been received from 35 constituencies, indicating the election of 28 Opposition and only seven straight supporters of the
Government. The three scats which are still in doubt will probably return Opposition
members. Premier Martin does not acknowledge defeat but claims his ability to induce
half a dozen members-elect counted among the Opposition to support his Government upon a vote of want of confidence in the House. The straight Conservatives will have the
strongest individual following in the next Parliament, having elected 13 members. Martin,
the Premier, is elected in Vancouver, as is also Smith Curtis, Minister of Mines, in Rossland district, and J. C. Brown, of Westminster, Minister of Finance. Two of the Ministers, Yates, of Victoria, and Beebe, of Yale, arc defeated. Charles Wilson, leader of the
Convervatives, and F. L. Carter-Cotton, leader of the Provincial Party, are both defeated
in Vancouver City, where Mayer Garden led the poll in the Conservative interest.
Many predict that when the House meets and the Government has been overthrown upon a vote of want of confidence, that then either ex-Premier Turner, of Victoria,
Mayor Garden, of Vancouver, of H. D. Helmcken, of Victoria, will be called upon to form
a Conservative Government.
IN THE ORIENT.
The Situation ln China Is Considered
Distinctly Grave.
(nV ASSOCIATK.II I'UMSS.)
London, June 0.���The situation in
Chiim tonight appears distinctly
graver. The destruction of a Russian eliapel at Tang Tlngan hns provided Russia with the desired pretext to land more troops.
The despatches from St. Petersburg
this afternoon that the Government
is resolved, If the dangerous situation
in China continues, to take Immediate military action to repress the
anti-foreign movement, at the same
time declaring that it has no intention of disassociating itself from the
Joint actions of the Powers, may he
regarded as a seini-ollieial utterance,
meaning if there is any hesitancy on
the part of the Powers. Russia will
act alone.
All reports agree that the "Boxer"
movement is spreading. The report
is confirmed that the French agents
at Mong Tse and Yun Man Fu have
been compelled to retire, and this
shows that the ferment has reached
southwestern China and has provoked
France into taking active steps.
Sir Claude MaoDonald, the British
Minister at Pekin, has wired the
British Consul nt Shanghai continuing
the report of the outrages nnd the fnot
that the Throne nnd Government have
been notunted by a secret sympathy
with the Boxer movement, which the
Government hns nmple power to suppress if it so desires. His despatch,
however, is in no way of nu alarming
nature.
The latest Tien Tsin despatches
saying that the Dowager Empress
hns appointed anti-foreign generals
with the pretended mission to suppress the "Boxers" make it Impossible
to doubt thnt the time has arrived for
energetic action.
It is expected that the British Government will utilize the Chinese
regiment which has been in training
at Wei Hal Wei. as it would he dangerous to remove the garrison from
Hong Kong at the present time.
A special despatch from Shanghai.
dated June Otb, says; "The Tsung Li
Yemen has protested to the ministers
against the presence of such a large
number of foreign forces, asserting
tbst It osnnot be only for the protection ot tbe Legations,  but  (or tbo
establishment of a garrison in tbe
Capital of an independent friendly
state. The answer which the foreign
ministers returned to this protest is
unknown,
The American mission at Pic Tang
pOhow was destroyed yesterday hut
the missionaries lied to a place of
safety.
It is reported that the Viceroy of
Chi Li has resigned.
It is proposed to bring l.i Hung
Chang hack from the south hut
Prince Kang Yi proposes to give the
post to the infamous Li Ping Seng,
the former Governor of Bhang Tung.
Pao Ting Ru iu burning. The Tien
Tsin Railway hns finally oeased to be
operated. All the English missionaries are eunnmped inside tbe Legation."
St. Petersburg, June 9���It is deolnred
here that the Government is resolved,
if tlie dangerous situation in China continues, to take immediate energetic
military action to repress the anti-foreign movement. At the same time the
Qovernment bus no intention of disassociating itself from the joint action of
tho Powers.
London, June !).���The Ohinose situation, whioh, at the beginning of the
week, was meroly a small cloud on tbe
international horizon,now overshadows
overy other topic in England. According to most authorities,save those who
control her foreigu policy, England is
face to face witb a crisis in the Far
Enstern affairs, which, though it may
not result in any immediate partition
of China, must demand the part that
England shall piny when the partition
eveutually occurs. That each an emergency should hnve arisen at a moment
when England is least able to utilize it,
wheu almost all her land forces are
six thousand miles from home, and
when there is a paramount necessity
for keeping an extia strong fleet in
European waters is deplored by nil
shades of statesmen and politicians.
Lord Salisbury stands almost alone
amidst bis own party in believing that
the results of the Boxer outbreak will
be neither serious nor permanent. The
attitude be adopts towards tho unanimous agitation for stronger action is
voiced by an intimate friend who said
to a representative of the Associated
Press: "Lord Salisbury helieves we
should be thankful for small favors.
The co-operation of the diplomats and
naval authorities on the spot seems to
be perfect and unusually harmonious.
So long aa that satisfactory Btate of
affairs continues he will be eminently
satisfied and will take no other steps
unffcss one or several of the powers ask
Great Britain's assistanco to a scheme
which appears feasible, or unless Russian aggression becomes much more
pateut than it is now. When these
contingencies occur, tbe representatives of the various nations at Pekin
failing to agree, then they will have
the right to resume the initiative.
At present they agree in u smooth
progress of the negotiations at the
seat of the'disturbnnces and implicitly
trust iu Mir Claude McDonald, the
British Minister to China. It may
be added that Oreat Britain's Premier
is not particularly optimistic regarding the length of time the various
ministers and admirals iu the far
East will co-operate so admirably,
but Lord Salisbury is far too philosophical to borrow trouble as he is
committed to the opportunist policy,
pure and simple in the far East, of
not crossing bridges before he comes
to them.

JOHN HOUSTON WINS
Nelson's Mayor Polls a Surprisingly Large
Vote and Victory Perches on
His Banner.
Leads Fletcher by 223 Votes and Dr. Hall
by 433-Dr. Hall Loses His
Deposit.
The election in the Nelson Riding yesterday resulted
in the success ofjohnHouston,the Provincial party candidate,
who lead Frank Fletcher hy 223 votes and Dr. Hall by 434.
There were in all 1,518 votes cast, of which Mr. Houston
secured 725, Frank Fletcher 502 and Dr. Hall 292, the latter losing his deposit. Mr. Houston's big vote was a surprise to himself and his supporters, and needless to say was
a surprise to the other candidates and their supporters.
There was a very large vote polled in Nelson, the figures
reaching 1,139. Of these Mr. Houston got 541, Mr. Fletcher 380, Dr. Hall 218.
When the result of ihe contest was known the Houston
supporters immediately organized a parade and with flaming
torches and a hand of music marched up and down the
streets. At the Hume Hotel corner the parade came to a
halt and, after a demonstration lasting several minutes,
Mayor Houston rose in his carriage and addressed the gathering. He thanked them for their support and promised to
faithfully and well care for their interests. If was long after midnight before the Houston men finished their celebration.
The vote in the Nelson Riding, with Yellowstone Mine
yet to be heard from, was as follows:

exceptionally corrupt, and as it was

The feeling in tbe City yesterday
was intense, and the friends of the
candidates worked with an energy
that did it full justice. Tbe partisans wbo stood around and worked with their jaws instead of tbeir
legs were quite as much in earnest
as tbe rest of tbem. But throughout it all the best of humor prevailed, and nothing harsher was heard
during tbe day than good natured
chaff between the opposing sides.
It is something to the credit of Nelson that in an election as keenly
contested as that of yesterday
everything should pass off in a
manner to leave no regrets to mar
the recollection of it.

The Miner has no doubt thai
every elector who marked a ballot
yesterday was animated by a sincere desire to advance the general
public interest. If all did not |vote
the same way it was because they
differed in judgment as to the best
manner in which to do this. A
very considerable majority of the
electors believed that Mr. Houston
would represent them to most advantage at Victoria, and that gentleman was accordingly elected.
Let us hope that they will not be
disappointed, The Miner is as
strongly convinced after the event
as it was before it that the interests
of the Riding and of the Province
would have been best served by the
election of Mr. Fletcher. It hasno
quarrel, however, with those who
thought differently. Its own fortunes nre bound up with those of
the community in which it lives, and
the fortunes of the community depend largely, if not entirely, on the
prosperity of the Province. If the
election of Mr. Houston will do as
much towards promoting that prosperity as would the election of any
other candidate, there will be no
cause for regrets hereafter.
It is most significant that the two
Ministers who are most open to
attack, Mr. Sifton and Mr. Tarte,
have taken great pains to absent
themselves during the closing session of the present Parliament.
If Mr. Mills had also taken French
leave, it would have been possible
to escape that commission to inquire into those corrupt practices
in West Huron and Brockville that
have shocked a public conscience
that is by no means too sensitive.
In the absence of the Minister of
Justice, the Premier would have
been able to make a fairly plausible
excuse for inaction.

OVER THE PROVINCE.
The Martin Government is defeated as everybody expected, but Mr.
Martin himself is a survivor. The
greatest surprise of the election is
the defeat of Mr. Mackintosh in
Rossland,which will stand for many
a day as the most striking piece of
political insanity in the records of
the Province. The defeat of the
two leaders, Mr. Wilson and Mr.
Cotton, is, perhaps, less a surprise
than a novelty.
There is hope in the result of a
Government strong- enough to insure steady andeffective administration foi the next four years. But
it can be predicted with considerable confidence that the experience
of the campaign has convinced the
people of British Columbia that
government on party lines cannot
be introduced too soon. Yesterday's was probably the last mongrel
election the Province will ever
know.
Mr. Sifton has returned from
Vienna to London, and is expected
to sail for home soon. But as he
went away to escape the session, he
tvill hardly return in  time  to give
TEST US
IN   ORDER
To get the best results from a
timepieoe it iB necoBsary to thoroughly understand its mechanism.
We have this understanding, ao-
quired by years of study and practice in some of the best workshops
in America. We invite the severest twits and guarantee satisfactory
results.

the   House  today Mr.   Fielding

of Pretoria was not correct us be had
hoisted a flag.   Mr. Taylor  said that
the Member for London, Mayor Beat-
tic, told him no flag was there.     The

messengers of $1100.
Colonel Prior brought  up   the question   of   Chinese   Immigration,    suggesting tbat   tbe   Chinese  poll tax he
increased to $.100, and   something like
the  Natal  Act being  put   ill force to
keep   out    the    Japanese.     Premier
Taurier  said   tbat    the  Government
would   introduce  a bill  ou   Monday
dealing with this manner.    He,   however, could not see the position taken
by   Colonel  Prior  in   the matter.    If
tbe Natal Act was  adopted  there was
no need of an   incrense   in capitation

CAPTURE OF PIGMIES.
Bishop Tucker Has a Gorman Trader
Arrestod ln Africa.
London, June 8���The well-known
African Bishop Tucker, writing from
TJnganda on March 28, gives a good example of how the aborigines learn to
bate and fear tho whites. During a
long journey the Bishop learned that a
(lermiin trader was sending out an expedition to capture  some  pigmies of
the Great Forest and exhibit them at
the I'm is Exposition.  Tbo Bishop was
unable to   interfere and  returned  to
I'liganda.
Subsequently  be   beard of  a trader
in pigmies in Mengo. lie immediately
organized   an   expedition   and   Interviewed   a   Christian   Uganda.      The
head   man   of  tbe    German    caravan
learned   of   this,    and   when   Bishop
Tucker's   expedition   arrived   in   tbe
forest, the Germans were  there ahead
of   them.    The   Germans   beat   their
drums, and after a while u few  little
people of shy appearance came   out to
partake  of   n   feast   which   had been
made   for   them,    When   they  did so
seventeen of them   were seized by tbe
German   trader,   and   the   march  to
Mengo   began.      On    the  way    nine
of   tbe   pigmies  escaped.    They  were
pursued and recaptured by the bishop,
who   took   them   as   evidence   to the
British   Commissioner,     Sir    Harry
Johnson.    The   result   was  that   the
pigmies were released and sent home,
while   the   (lermnn   trader   was   arrested, and when the mail l��ft he wub
awaiting trial.    In writing of the affair,   Bishop   Tucker   says   he  never
heard   of   anything  more   like  slave
trading.

and
Phoenix, B. 0��� June 8���One of tho
mines in Phoenix enmp which is at
trading a good deal of attention is the
Snowshoo  adjoining tho  Gold Drop,
just cast of here.    On the recommendation of J. W. Astley, mining engineer,
this  property,   which   bad   formerly
been bonded to Patrick Clark and others, was bonded  to Anthony J.  Mc-
Milliun, who represented the Kossland
and Slocan (B. C.) Syndicate, Limited,
composed of wealthy capitalists of London,   England.    The price named in
the bond was $70,000, and development
was immediately started.   On April 1st
last the final payment of $17,800 came
due ou the  bond, and was promptly
met.
Mr. McMillan   spent   last winter in
London, nnd wus there when  tbe   last
payment was made.   A few days ago
he visitod the proporty  and   expressed
much satisfaction at  tbe development
done in lm absence, under   the  superintendence of J. H. Trovoriow.    Thus
far there hns been   about  1400 feet  of
work done.   Tbo property is opened up
by  a main  inoline shaft, whioh  has|
been put down 200 feet.     Drifts  have
beeu run north nnd south from the  Io0
and 200-foot levels and large ore bodies
opened up.    A short  time ago   a new
tunnel  was  started below  where tho
railway graders for the Phoenix  spnr
had cut a fine ore body.     This tunnel
ia in about 2(10 feet, the last Mil  feet of
which has been driven] through   solid
ore.   On  the  2(>0-foot   level   the  east
aud west erossouts from the south drift
liiivi also disclosed largo bodies of first
olass cbalcopyrlte.     A  drift  is  being
rnn   from   tbo   loo-foot  level   which
we have heard  so  much  recently, the
will   be   connected    with   the    surface  bv   a    raise,    and    also     connected with the 2i)(i foot  level   in   tbe
ore body.
Tbe management of the Ruow9hoe has
decided to put in n large boiler, and the
machinery agents are now figuring on
one ol 70-borse power, which will give
tbo needed power for tlit-Jiilr compressor,
pumps uud hoist. This should be installed in a month or six weeks. The
returns from tbe two cars of ore shipped from tbo Snoesboo last winter wen-
very encouraging.
