Boers Dishearted by Roberts'
Strategy and Rapid
Advance.
(11Y ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London, Mny 12.���10 p. m.���The
War Otlloe has received the following
despatche frou�� Lord Roberts:
Kroonstadt, Mny 12tb.��� 2 p. m.���I

ont opposition. The Union ,laok was
hoisted amidst cheers from tho few
British residents.

Victoria. H. 0., May 13.���The sealers Allie 1. Alger, K. li. Mervin, Beatrice, Hnttie, Dana, City of San Dio-
go. ArielicH and Minnie returned from
(lie west coast this morning with a
oatch of 4,048 skins. Oaptain Baker of
the Alger reports the probable loss of
n niatii and fonr men, two whites and
two l mlm��ii.-=, from the sobooner Sadie
Turpel. They have been missing sinoe
tho liltb. It is believed they wero
drowned in a storm which separated
them from tho vessel.
News is received by the arrival of
the Amur today, of the opening of the
Yukon ot Dawson, May 8, and the
initiation of navigation from La Barge
to points below.
Winnipeg, May 12.���During a small
blaze at Gait's Spice factory last night
an incendiary attempted to Are the
(lorrlio Business Block. He was detected but made his oaoupe.
Winnipeg, May 12.���Soldiers tomorrow will decorate the graves of the
men who fell in the rebellion of 1885.
Ehe entire garrison will turn out.
London, May IB. ��� I a. m.���The situation at the eont of war in South
Africa is as satisfactory from the British point of view as the most sanguine
friend oould hnve hoped a week ago.
The noonpat ion of Kroonstadt prac-
tioally places the whole Orange flto
State in Hi lii.-h possession. It is evident from Lord Roberts' last despatch
that the disintegration lias commenced.
The Free Staters are aonttering to
their homes, while the Transvaalers
have gone north, declining to light
louger in the Orange Froo Stnte.
What little resistance tho former
mBke or are likely to make auems to be
oeutering at Lindley, whither President Stejn has transferred hit, Government. It ia evident that the strategy
of Lord Roberts and the rapidity of
his advnnca have bewildered and dis
heartened the Boers so that their resistance, since the British reached tbe
Zand River, has been Blight.
The only point whero thny seriously
attempted to oheok the advanco seems
to have been on tho British tight,
where they defended vigorously two
kopjes, which eventually were cartied
by the Fast Lancashire and Sussex
Regiments. The Boers finally retreat
ed, leaving n group of gunners deod on
top of one of  the heights.
The only point in the Free State
where the Boers seem in any foroe.ex-
cept at Lord Roberts' front, is at the
southeast, where Generals Rundle,
Campbell and Brabant are holding
them In check west of Hicksbnrg nnd
Ladybrand nnd are grudunlly pushing
them baok aa well as elfeotnally defeating all their efforta to break,
through and threaten Lotd Roberts'
communications.
There is no further nowa regarding
the ndvanoe of the relief column to
Mafeking, bnt it is possible that Lord
Roberts' sneoessea will result in forcing the Boers to raise the seigo.
Pretoria advices, via Lorenzo Marques, Btato that tbe Boers' supply of
smokeless powder is exhausted and
that all attempts to manufacture a
fresh supply have been unsuccessful.

To the Electors of the Nelson
Eiding of the West
Kootenay Electoral District :
Ghntlkmen���As the nominee of the
Conservative party I beg to offer myself
au a candidate at the cnniing general
eleetion to represent you in the Legislative Assembly ot this Province.
Tbe time has arrived when all parties
are fully alive to the fact that the future
welfare of our Province demands n
sound, fair and honest business administration aud that any great popular
Party must appeal to other and
higher conaideratious than tboae of individual fear of loss, or hope of gain.
I oonsider it tbe duty of every member
eleoted, to be a Proviucinlist to tbe ex-
lent of the In-ill interests of the Province
Ileal, lust and always, and to support all
good legislation with that objeot in view-
In asking you for your support, I will
state that I 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 instauoe, twiee the Legislature baa passed Alien Exclusion
Laws and they are now for the second
time seeking to repeal them after having
done considerable mischief aud damage.
With regard to the Eight-Hour Lnw, I
am opposed to any change aa the law
now atands.
Shorter hours for all classes of labor
ia no new idea, but in my opiuion tbe
principle should be auch as to appeal to
all Sections of the Community as being
not only a necessity and beneficial to all,
but in keeping with the general advancement of our civilization.
I would advooats the amendment aud
.strict enforoement ot the Metalliferous
Mines Inspection Act, so as to more effectually protect the lives of workmen.
With regard to tbe Mineral Aot: I
would endeavor to have certain seolions
more clearly defined, for the purpose of
avoiding litigation ; aud with regard to
co-ownerobip, to iutrodace au inexpensive and speedy nioc.e cf making a co-
owner bear hia share of assessment or
relinquish his interest.
I am in favor of an amendment to our
School Laws so as to give Cities tbe control of the Hohools in their midst.
A fair Redistribution Aot should be
passed as soon aa possible.
I would advocate the bringing into
fence of the I'm Ten's Act, provided it is
made optional ; ns tbe cost in a great
many cases will be excessive and out of
all proportion to any benefit to be derived,
I would urge Hie speedy construction
of a Court House in Nelson, eqttsl to
the requirements of this district,
1 would strongly advocate increased
(irants for Roads, Trails and Bridges
wherever such will upbuild aud develop
onr Province, more especially in tbe
Miuing Districts, nnd all such expenditure to bo placed in capable nnd experienced hands to be dealt with in a
systematic way.
Our undeveloped natural reaourcea
ahonld reoeive more attention, and be
now widely advertised in order to attract
oapital.
Willi regard to cheap foreign labor I
believe where the remedy is an Imperia
matter, in view of the stand our Provinoe
and Country has taken injtbe present war
giving both lives and money, tbe desired
end oau be gained if properly sought,
without bringing about a sorious misun
derstanding with the Dominion Government entailing deplorable agitation as
we require peaoe and prosperity in out
midst.
I am opposed to any clique or faction
of politioal agitators whoso principle aim
ia to embarass and retard tbe business
of the Provinoe for purely personal advancement.
I strongly condemn the actions of the
Lieut.-Governor as being au invasion of
the priuoiplo of responsible government
oud a misuae of his power under our
(lonstitutiou,
Yours respectfully,
FRANK FLETCHKR.

Corporal Dickson  Tells of  the Doings
in South Afrioa.
In a letter dated Bloemfontein,
March 23, Corporal Dickson writes to
R. M. Maodonald, of this oity, aa follows:
"Don't believe all of the letters you
see in the Eastern papers. Many of
them me pure fabrications and are
anyway stretches of imnginntiou. We
have had nu real fighting till tbe 18th
of Februaiy. Even the engagement at
Snnnyside in which some of onr men
took part under Col. Pelcher was not
much. Onr first and laBt real fighting occurred botwen the inth and 27th
of February.''
In n later letter dntod April H, Corporal DickBon desciiboB the work in
oonneotion with foromg tbe enemy
from their position at the water
workB near Bloemfontein, and Bays;
"We are fortunate in being so well
to tho front and in having seen so
much of the real work In fighting.
Indeed wo have seen heavier work than
any other Colonial or volunteer regiment. Onr regiment is much cnt
down in numbers, we have lost eo
many killed and wounded and have so
many sick in tho hospital that I don't
think we now march ont mote than
550 Btroug, instead of nearly 1100 aa
we were at first. We have seen aome
of the Second Contingent. I believe
they are expected here soon."
Billy Patterson is laid up with fover
and I don't think it ia severe and cerium
ly hope not, lie went to the hospital
tin the Itb and will of oourse have to remain there until tho fever takes ita
course ami l.eo and I are nil right aud
quite fat. So is Captain Hodgiua
and we Iibvc been a prcfty healthy
orew all along and about aa
lit as any oue in tho camp."
In conclusion Corporal Dickson asks
Mr. Maodonald to remember him to all
his friedds aud and also sends messages
John Houston was duly nominated
at tbe Provmeial Party convention
held in Fraternity Hall last uight.
The moeting was attended by about 85
delegates and was a decidedly enthusiastic one. In addition to tbe delegates there were present R. F. Green,
Provincial Party oandidate in tbe
Slocan, James M. Martin,of Rossland,
and J, Fred Hume, of this oity, all of
whom made addresses.
The convention was called to order
by Daivd McBetb, Provincial Party
chairman. Upon the motion of CharleB
A. Waterman, seconded by Jobn Uih-
aon, W. A. (lalliber was ohoaen permanent ohairman, with Fred Staiaey
ns secretary. A credential oommittae
composed of Messrs. Gibson, Tayloi
and Stanley, was appointed aud reoeived tbe credentials of tbe delegates
After tbe committee's report, Chairman (lalliber declared nominations to
be in order
Mr. S. S. Taylor made the only
nominating speech. He was pleased,
be said, to find ao largo and represent
ntive convention. He declared tbe
Provincial Partv to be tbe only party
in the Province at the present time.
It was tbe party which had so ably
governed thit Province for the past
two years aud tbe party whioh had
been thrown out of power at a time
when it bad a majority of three or
fonr in tbe House. He believed, bow-
ever, that the Provincial Party would
be returned to power and to aid in this
he desired to pnt in nomination the
name of a man whom everyone respected and who was loyal at all times
to Nelson and to the Province.
"I have the very great pleasure,"
said Mr. Taylor in conclusion, "in
plaoing before this convention for
unanimous nomination John Houston,
publisher, of the Oity of Nelson."
The loud applanse which followed
left no donbt as to tbe sentiments of
the delegates, and after waiting a moment, without further nominations,
Chairman Qalliher declared Mr.
Houston the unanimous nominee of
the convention, and appointed David
McBeth to find Mr. Houston and escort
bim to the convention ball. After a
diligent aearob the Mayor waB found
and a moment later appeared before
tbe convention. He was greeted
with loud applause and bowed his
thanks as be was esoortod to tbe front
{of the hall.
Chairman Galliber informed bim of
bia nomination and in a short address
Mr. Houston thanked tbe convention
for tbe honor conferred upon him.
"If the men here tonight," said
the Mayor, "will use the same endeavors as they have used in former
years to bring victory to their standard bearor, on tho night of June I) I
will bo tbe proudest man in tbe Kooto-
nays. I have fought in the ranka for
ten years and you have now obosjn me
as yonr leader. If we are successful at
the pollB you will bavo a man at Victoria who will not bo afraid to ftgbt
for the rights of Kootenay, leader or
no leader.''
Messrs. Green, Hume and Martin
and others followed with brief addrse-
es, aud at about II o'clock the convention adjourned.
John  It. Costigan,  Q. C, of Cran.
brook, who was in Nelson recently, ia
to be the candidate of the ant i-1Mai t in
people of South East Kootenay riding.
Dennis Murphy, who is running
against the Hon, George Washington
lieehe in West Yule, is said to be a
sure winner. In a letter received by a
Nelson gentleman from a friend in that
riding the statement is made that Bee-
bee does not stand a "ghost of a
allow" for election,
Here is a good story on tbe candidates of Mayor Houston, that can be
taken as one of the "atrawa" that
show which way the politioal "wind"
is blowing in Ymir.
It seems that two of Mr. Houston's
supporters went down to Ymir last
week to do Borne missionary work
among the electora of that town. They
put up at one of the hotels there and announced to several acquaintances that
they were prepared to distribute a few
financial favors to euob as were disposed to listen to the voice of reason.
One Thomas Flynn, au old miner of
iriah extraction, seemed a promising
party, for he bad imbibed several
drinks at tbe expense of tbe mission,
ansa, so he was selected aa tbe firat
viotim. One of tbe Nelson men took
bim aaide and in a confidential voice
proceuded to dilate upon the solidity
and attractiveness of tbe planks in Mr.
Houston's platform. There seemed to
be some trouble in making Mr. Flynn
comprehend exaetly what was being
eouveyed to him, hut on being told a
second time what inestimable rewards
both to conscience gnd pocket awaited
the supporter of the candidate in
question, he caught on. 'i'was then
the hopes of the missionaries were
dashed, for Flynn, in a boarse whisper
that could have been beard a block
away, deliverod himself of the following: "Oh, it's Houston ye're workin'
for, is it? Well, for the saints In
llivens sake don't ye mention it to
the byes or they'll throw ye into the
river I" This remark and other information to the effeot that but one
or two of the Ymir electora favored
Mr. Houston'a candidature, dashed the
hopes of tho two workers and it is
said they spent the rest of tbe day in
the atoio of a friend, secluded from
the general public.
Kaslo, May 12.���Geo. Kane ia busy
those dayB in Joe Martin's interest, tonight he called n meeting of Li be relator
the purpose of electing one delegate to
tbe convention to be held here on tbe
fifteenth to select a Martin candidate.
The chief Liberals in tbe town refused
to have anything to do with the meeting, as they would rather see a Conservative elected than have a Martin
man elected to represent Slocan. Up
to tho honr of tbe dosing of tbe telegraph office uo delegate bad been
elected.
TliercturnlngofBcerhna posted notice
throughout she riding designating the, from Patterson nnd Lee,
Dr. G. A. B. Hall has taken the old
Hudson's Bay store to be naed as his
headquarters and committee room dur
ing the present campaign. A committee will be appointed and a secretary
placed In oharge of tbe committee
room, whioh will be opened Monday
night st 8 o'clock.
Victoria, May 12.���Great dlssatifaction in Liberal circles at the outcome
of the meeting laat evening for tbe
election of officers. Tbe turning down of
George Riley and Senator Templeman
by the Martin faotion ia considered
mean of the party in thia oity. J. D.
I'jeniiee has gono to Lillooet to attend
the Martin meeting at that point C.K.
Tisdale of Vancouver has resigned aa a
candidate. The Opposition nominating convention on Monday evening is
expected to be interesting. It is called
at tbe instance of the anti-Martin Liberals for the purpose of endeavoring to
get the Conservatives to drop MoPhill-
ips from the ticket and take another Liberal on the tioket.

Toronto, May li.���Tbe Maodonald
Club, of West Toronto, held a pnblio
meeting laat night. Mr. MacLaan, M.
P., prophesiel a victory for tbe Conservatives at the next Federal election.
He said tbey would have a majority
in the maritime Provinoee, which

a word of praise on tho grand fighting
qualities of Tapper and proclaimed
Hugh John Maodonald as the rising

Mr. Osier, M. P., said if hard times

A SPECIMEN BRICK.
Tho   late  Greenwny Government in
Manitoba wns sworn in on tho leth
January, 1SS8. Ouu of its first acta
waa to appoint a commission to ko
over the acoonnts The intention was
to throw discredit on Mr. Norimay'a
management of atfairs. nnd n careful
choice wns made of the commissioners, or expert nccouutaiits. They were
a brace of ns hot partisans ns could be
found in a day's inarch, and with politioal consciences that from much
abase had become too blunt to prick.
They bad no diflicnlty in limine: a report to tbe Government's liking, Mr.
Norquay wns convicted on tbetestiinouy
of these ubeaieut reokoners of :ru ..- incompetence and extra\ si;.11  iii dealing with the public accounts. And so
tbe verdict stood, for Mr. Greenwny
remained in nntil a few months ago,
aud he took good care that there wns
no further inspection of tbe books.
When Mr. Greonwny went out nnd
Mr. Mai dounld oanm in there was another commission. There had long
been a suspicion that tbe public ac
counts were in n bud ahnpe, and that
Col. McMillan, the Provincial Thus
nrer, was systematically concealing, as
suoh an accomplished hypocrlto was
capable of doing, a condition of very-
great rottenness. Mr. Macdonald's
commissionsrs were composed of two
bank malingers, who bad never taken
part iu Provincial politics, aud a par
tisau accountant with a conscience in
aotive working order. They have jnBt
made their report. The first thing they
discover ia that the report in 1HS8 was
incorrect and misleading. No one who
knew Mr. Norquay needed this formal
and official exoneration, but it will be
gratifying nevetthelesa to nil hia
friends. The commiHsioners then go
on to disoovcr n great many other
things. Irregularities in the Treasury
Department under tho Oreenwuy regime were the rule instead of tho exception, aome of them so reprehensible
as to be almost criminal. Payments to
contractors were made without vouchers ; railway debentures wero handed
over without authority; trust funds
have beiiii used fur general pnrposes;
no proper credit has been made of receipts, aud Col. McMillan's surplus of
the campaign has been changed into a
^efloit of n qonrtor of n million.
Those are a few of the discoveries
made. For a gteat portion of the time
covered by the investigation Mr. Martin waa n member of the Government.
It was be who was mainly responsible
for fastening that lie on Mr. Norqoay
under which he went down to his
grave,and which has dragged its loathsome length along until the prcsnnl time
There are few more unscrupulous
men in Canada thnu Mr. Greenwny,
but he is too indolent to be dishonest
excepting under tho pressure of some
exigency. Neurly all the evil propensities of the Greenwnv Government
were Instilled int* it by Mr. Martin ;
he was the heavy villain of tho enst,
and in tho formative stages of their nd-
miuistration Mr. Gneiiwny was but wax
in his hands. This ia the Mr. Martin
who ia now Premier of British Columbia, by grace of Governor Mclnnea,
snd who ia seeking the endorsntion
of the people. Aa the Province is not
fet bedevilled to the full Unit of its
The surprises of the politicnl situation iu this Province nro not yot exhausted; indeed, there would aoem to
be no limit to them. A gentleman
named Brown has taken Mr. Ryder's
place in tho Cabinet. Mr. Brown, it
appears, is au old political hand. He
served n term iu the Legislature some
years ago, and was active and influential enough to secure bin own appointment as Postmaster at New Westminster. It was understood Hint he
wns ono of the first whom Mr. Martin
consulted whan driven foith to seek
colleagues; but at thnt time, barely
two months ago, be had so poor nu
opinion of the Premier thnt bo refused
to associate with him. In fact, it is
believed he called him a number of
very hard uauios, and gave the impression at tbe time that nothing could
possibly reconcile him to the uotiuu of
becoming Mr. Martin's colloogue.
Today ho is Finance Minister. The
surprise of it is scarcely less thnu was
tbe choico of Mr. Ryder, whom nobody
knew, and of whom nothing had ever
previously been heard. Our correspondent nt Victoria relntes an nston-
isbing Btory, current iu thnt city, ns
explanation of Mr. Brown's sudden
change of opinion. As usual, a politicnl deal ia at the bottom of it, and
also iib usual His Honor tho Lieutenant-Governor is a party to it. It is
shamoful, of course, but no more than
other things attributed to that very
remarkable specimen of n Crown representative. The deal is based on the
assumption that the Government party
will win in the electio.ia. Mr. Martin
nnd Mr. Brown are to submit tbeir
claims to lendership to a cnuous of tho
party, and tho loser agrees to stand by
the winner until the nloBe of the sss-
aion. In tbe meantime the Agent-
Generalship in . London is to bo revived, and this is the prize that is to fall
to His Honor; the Winner in tho caucus will remain tho Premier, aud
heaven nnd enith nro to be moved to
get the loser appointed Lieutenant-
Governor.
It is a wild, harebrnincd scheme,
but none th�� less improbable on that
account. It Is a kind of game in
which Mr. Martin delights to take a
hand. He may be balloted out of the
Premiorship. nud His Honor may prepare to take paasnge to London; but
no one knows beter than himself that
there never can be any Government
House for him. It may have been
worth all this to to get Mr. Brown in
place of Mr. Ryder; but should it turn
out that Mr. Mar,tin is defeated by the
canons, he haa recently experienced a
great change of heart if be does not at
once proceed to tnmble the -whole
scheme to tbe ground. If Mr. Martin
cannot come out winner, he will take
good care that no one else does. We
repeat thnt it is all very shamoful, but
what of that? What have we had for
a year past but very shameful and outrageous things? They have not seemed
to atir ns to any remarkable pitoh of
indignation, and why should thia? It
is a li -aiiiiful conspiracy, and the more
diverting because the Crown has been
dragged into it. The new politics of
British Columbia ia that every man
should look ont for himself, and the
devil take the hindmost.
not all of them, is tho one word, ililn-
toriness. One, Rnilwnys ond Canals,
is enriched with a number of valuable
and interesting maps. Wo do not know
whether Mr. Blair is relying ou these
to excuse tbe delay in his case. The
maps will be appreciated, no doubt,
bnt there ia nothing in their preparation to require such an inordinate consumption of time.
Tho Liberals of Kaalo would rather
vote for a Conservative than see n Martin candidate elected for Slocan; they
would rather vote for n Oonservntive
thnn sen n Cotton candidate electod.
The Liberals of Kaalo are wise. To
have their partv identified wiln either
Martin ism or Cottoniam would simply
be to discredit it.
* Of nil the nddreHses so far published,
the brondest and most statesmanlike is
thnt of Mr. Mackintosh, for Rossland,
and the most practicul nnd bnainosxlike
is Mr. John Keen's for Slocnn. These
two men should he elected. British
Colnnibin is in need of them.

Badly as our affairs are managed we
are not obliged to go across a continent
and an ocean for tbe good or bad opinion of anyone, but if it comes to us
unsolicited we sbnll do well to listen,
nnd if sound nnd timely,as the following is, we shall do better to heed. It
is from The Colonial Goldflelds Gazette, London: "We nre glnd to note
thnt tho desire so often expressed, thnt
the Hon. H. Mackintosh should outer
the political nrona, will now be realised. Capable, exporienoed men of undoubted Integrity, like Mr. Maokin-
toBh, who would rise above tbe pettiness which now marks so many of the
members of the Legislature, hav:> lone
been much needed for the Provincial
Parliament, and now thnt he has consented to Htnnd for Kossland, that city
and Ilritish Columbia nro, indeed, to
bo congratulated."
As his last resort Mr. Houston is
throwing himself 011 the old timers.
There can bo no Cotton party with Mr.
Cotton out, and ns thnt geiitlemnn will
not bo n candidate the party is de-
fnnct. The Maitin managers, it seems,
will not trust him, and he cannot run
ns a Martin candidate. He will say
he is n Lihoral or a Conservative, if
jither will listen; but neither wants
him. He fulls back, therefore, on the
ild timors. The Old-Time parly is a
respeetnblo one, bnt hardly numerous
enough, we are afraid, to serve Mr.
Houston's ambition to bucome a mem
her of tho Legislature. He had bettor
keep on suwiiid wood.
It is many yenrs since the Departmental reports wero as late as fboy are
this year. They are only now coming
down, although the Qsoal year of
which they treat expired nearly
twelve months ago. Tbe only explanation of tbe delay In respect to most, if

DROWNED
\   Phillip J. Annett Loses His
Life   in    Kootenay
Lake.
Tamos Phillip Annett, of Watford,
Ontario, was drowned shortly after
noon yesterday In Kootenay lake near
the shore opposite tho 0. l\ It. ship-
yard, and bis body waa recovered late
in the ul'ternoonby Mr. W. II, Hullnck-
Wobster and three assistants,
Annett and O, D, Lank, both boarders in the Olark House, left the hotel
shortly after noon to spend the afternoon on tbe lake. Tbey procured a
Peterborough canoe nt a bout bouse
and bad no trouble whatever until
they reached the point, on f lie north
hank of the lake opposite I he shipyard.
They were quite olt.se toshoie aud as
they turned around the rock the wind
and waves caught the boat and in the
momentary confusion which followed
the canoe dipped water nnd upset,,
throwing both men out, Lank was almost ns much at home in the water lis
on land and he immediately swam to
the rock, calling to Annett to lake hold
of the canoe nnd also swim. When he
reached the rock Annett wns still
floundering in the water and had up.
pareutly lost his head���Lank immediately jumped into the wnler iijriiin
and swain lo Annett. Tttklngjhlm by
the clothes he assisted him to the
swamped canoe and lohl him to hold to
it Twice he did this, but each time
the canoe turned and Annct went be
low the surface of the water. Lank
then made an elfort lo swim to the
rock with his companion but Annett
was becoming exhausted and could not
Bssist himself. He continued to
founder about und finally liroke away
from the grip of bis companion nnd
sank.   Lank again  swam  to the rock
and remained thereuntil taken oif by
seine men who were Ushing in the
vicinity.
After returning to the hotel nnd drying his clothes. Lank reported the
matter to Mr. \V. II. llulloek Webster,
who immediately left to search for the
body, After about an hour's work if
wns found in sixteen feet of water and
brought to the city. Letters upon the
remains showed the home of the unfortunate man to have been in Watford, Out, A letter was fouud from his
I lister ill that town, Minnie K.|Aunctt,
Written ou April 13th, and another
letter from a cousin, Nathaniel Walker
Of Nardis, B. 0. A half written letter,
addressed to Miss 11. S. Patterson,
Toronto Junction, another cousin of
the deceased, was also found and Mr.
liullock Webster telegraphed the
relatives last night.
Annett came to Nelson and registered at the Clark Hotel on April 3. He
left some time later and went to Ymir
where he wasengaged at his trade, that
of mill building, He returned lo Nelson on May 2. and has been here since
that time. Before coining to Nelson
he hod spent some time in the Southern States and in Colorado. In the
letter he states he was employed for
some time in the town of Tellaride.
He was about 28 years of aire.

"Mr. E. Nelson Foil, the engineer and
i i<��� 111   manager of   the    Athabasca
mine, has jast arrived from B. C. for
the purpose of meeting the shareholders at the forthcoming meeting. It is

very careful and able management that
the Athahasoa is today in so prosperous
a condition, and we understand a further increase of plant is oontemplatad."
Mr. J. H. Bowes yesterday received a
letter from E. C. Wrngge,  his  former
lew partner now with Strathoona's
Horse, in which Mr, Wragge says:
" I shall lie glad when we land as nearly
a month at sea on a troopship ought to
lie enough for auybody. Wo had a fire
on board one night about a week ago
which was a little too exciting to be
funny, but everybody kept their heads
and we fell in and were marched to our
respective boats where we stood Until
the crew had put the fire out. It was
in the bake house on deck, and as we
could only seo the llames it was a very
unpleasant feeding, for we didn't know
bow bad it was and were afraid that it
might be a case of taking to the
boats in the middle of the Atlantic."
HE FOOLED THE   SURGEONS.

West Jefferson, O., after suffering 1H
