ON THE RUN
British Arms are Triumphant in   South   Africa.
Encouraging    Reports    Re
ceived from the Seat

Plucky   Mafeking   Garrison
Should Soon be Relieved.
London, May 8.-4:80 a. m.���The
Boers are everywhere racing before tbe
British except on the Natal frontier
and at Mafeking to the inner circle of
their defeuse. They appear determined
uot to fight until Kroonstadt bills nre
reached.
Lord Roberts is expeoted to do another 40 miles and then wnit for h
timo iu order to bring up supplies and
repair railroads. There aro oue or two
bints in tho despatches from the front
that he may rest for a few days at
Smalldee. Gen. French's cavalry have
uot beon mentioned in tbe olliciul despatches for four duys. It is hy no
means likely hnt he is idle aud conjecture iB that he is either tonriug
toward Kroonstadt or raiding the Ladybrand distriot. Fifteeu thousand
Hritish are now operntng on the western frontier of the Free State. As tin
deadlock at Warrenton has been broken nud tbe Boors are retreating, there
iB nothing formidable except distance
between Warrentou and Mafeking.
Most hopeful advices Irom Mafeking
on April 82nd were that the garrison
would be barely able to hold out for a
month. At tbat time tbo fever wns
spreading,
According to advices from Maseru,
Basntoland. several thousand Free
Staters are north of Ladytrnnd, when
they have collected groat heids. Thi
distriot is rich in food foi meu aud
horses and the Boers seem resolved not
to move north but to be preparing to
resist whore they aro. If they nre let
alone they will menace tho ��� line of
communication after tho main British
army has passed into the Transvaal.
Lord Roberts and Kitchener personally
directed the artillery in the Vet River
eiiRaRemsnt.
(.iiieen Victoria will send n signed
photograph to Col. Kekewioh, horo of
Kimberley.
Six thousand four bundled and Affreight troops are now at sea on the way
to South Africa. No others are under
orders to go except as recruits to fill
up loss of  regiments ut tbe front.
Geueral Hamilton is giving the Boers
no inst and thut tbey are fulling back
hurriedly. He euteied Wynburg today
after a brisk fight iu which the Boers
fell buck so quickly that ono of their
Runs iu addition to a Maxim was
abandoned."
Thu same despatch describing the
crossing of the Vet River by the British,  snys;
"The" Boer forces entrenched on the
opposite bunk prepared to oontest ao-
cession. Their gnns were brought into
play nnd terrifio shell tire was directed
on tbe Boer lines. At the same time,
the Cjueenslniiduru, uuder heavy fire,
dnshed across the river, and advancing
iu the open,completely turned tbe Boer
lines. It wns dusk bnt nothing oould
stop the gallaut Australians. They
pushed on again, seized a commanding
kopjo nud by a Ini 1 limit movement
nnd continuous rifle fire, diove off tbe
enemy iu tbe darkness. The first gleam
of dawn tbis morning found the enemy
iu full flight and our men after them.
By II o'clock this morniug, we entered this important strategic point."
A dec patch from Boshoff dated 1- ri-
duy, May 4th, eays;
"Gen. Methnen made a reoonnais-
sanue from here today previous to the
neighborhood of Sjart Kopjes Fontein
and located tbe Boer laager. After an
unimportant exchange of fire, th*
Boers removed their laager. A fairly
strong force of Boers was seon moving
northward. Gen. Methnen then returned to Boshoff."

The 489 Names Objected to Will   Go
On the Voters' List.
In accordance with the following
telegram, received from the Deputy
Attorney General by Oolleotor of Votes
Wright, tbe Oourt of Revision, oalled
for hy tbe statute, was held at the
Court House yesterday at 1 o'olook:
"Viotoria, B. O., May 5, 1900.
"Hurry Wright, Collector of Votes,
Nolson, B  O. :
"Your duties at tho Oourt of Revision are specified in Subsection 8,
section of tho 97 stntnte. You should
deal witli all objections and completely settle tho register at a Court nf Revision beginning on Mouduy. No time
nnw for notices. (Signed) H. A.
MucLcan. "
Promptly at 1 o'clook Collector
Wright appeared in tbe Court room
and announced that the Court was in
session. Ho bad with bim the original notice of objeotion and the register
of voters. No one appeared for the
objectors and S. S. Taylor, (j. O,, appeared for tbe objectors to the objections. Mr. R. M. Macdonald, wbo was
present at the opening of tbe Oourt,
i "ok occasion to say tbat be waa of the
opinion that Collector Wright waa not
sustained by the statute ln adjudicating upon tbe objections at the present
Court. He said ho waB not present in
the iuterests of anyone, tiut merely advanced the opinion. Mr. 8. S. Taylor
then stated thut as Mr. Macdonald
aokuowledged he waa not present as a
representative of anyone or party, that
tbe Court could not consider his statement. Collector Wright then produced
uud reud the above telegram as evidence of bis authority to act upon the
matter. Mi. Taylor then called attention to tho faot that tbe objections
filed were mado purely on technical
grounds and said it was bia purpose to
show that on purely tecbniual grounds
they could uot be sustained. His first
objection was on the ground that tbey
were not addrsesed to the proper officer, a mistako having beeu made in
the title in which the objectors addressed the Collector of Votes.
Also tlmt the men who rnndu tbe objections did not give a full snd proper
description of themselves as elootors of
the Nclum Riding.
Also that the iiBnms hnve been posted for two weeks und that no valid objection bus been given to the Collector.
On these teobnlxl giounds he asked
that tho Collector exeluds all the objections and adit the names to tbe register of votes.
Collector Wright then asked if any
of tbe gentlemen who had filed the
objections were in Ooutt to sustain the
charges, or if tbey wero represented.
He called all tbeir names out three
times, and as no one appeared to substantiate try proof thnt the objections

mlrable fortitude,   But it  Is none the
less true that for tho time niiiny of
them urn left absolutely helpless, and
that thore is great distress in consequence.    Tho  big-hearted   people  of
these Kn'itoiiaiiiii mountains did not
wait for piteous nppoals for aid before
nctiiiR, but on the first intelligence of
the disaster took steps to nlleyiato the
suffeiinR they knew must be entailed
by it. It is n pleasure to know that
this promptness had its reward in successfully coping with Immediate necessities; but. it is not to be uuderstood
tbat further outside aid is no longer
required, for tbo calamity was too
sweeping in many instances to have
its elTcots fully overcome by tbe first
few dnys' contributions. Help is still
needed, and we hnve 110 doubt the generous people of the Province will see
that it is supplied.

Mr. Fred Potors, ex-Promier of a

Island, was one of tho speakers nt an
Opposition meeting in Viotoria a few
nights ago. Mr. Bodwell. another
leuding Liberal, could uot bo present,
bnt sent n lottei expressing his entire
sympathy with the meeting. Here is
the olosing paragrnph of it: "Mr.
Martin's politicul and Jpubiio nots in
| tho past havo very seriously affected
the progress and ropututiou of the
I Proviuce. He has been called to office
1 nt tho presont juncture by n misuse of
power whiob, under our constitution,
I is placod in the hands of the Lieutenant-Governor. I have no faith in Mr.
Martin as n political leader. I am opposed to the principal planks in the
platform which he has presented to the
people, aud I believe that tho continuance of him and his Government in
power will be a constant menace to
the publio nnd material welfare of
British Ooiumbia." Mr. Houston is to
be the Martin candidate in Nelson.
LET THEM  SELECT.
Let those who are judges seleot the

tbe most attractive wall papers ot tho

MR. HOUSTON AND HIS ADDRESS
We do not see muoh of Mr.Houston's
platform, as enunoiated is his address
to the electors of Nelson Riding. It
was published in the issue of his paper
of tbe :iinli ult. uud then disappeared.
We are the more surprised at this because the platform wns n very good
one. It is easy to make good platforms. Auy ordinarily ustute persou
wbo studios the public mind, and who
oan read other platforms, can manage
without dillioulty to piece together one
that will tickle tbe public taste. In
the opinion ot experienced hands, platforms go for little. It is tlio man behind the platform who is considered.
The most unscrupulous and uLreliuble
person in the country is just ns apt to
come forward with a good platform ns
is the most honorable and trusted.
Electors, therefore, should not be influenced solely, or evon principally,
by a oaudidate's platform. He is to be
judged by his recoro more than by his
promises, and judged also by the oompany he proposes to keep.
Tho   ordinary   oandidate   represents
nothing  but  himself   and  stands  for
nothing else.   If elected, he  is powerless to do the least thing without making  an alliance with otbors.    He  bns
to atlaoh himself to n party in the Legislature if he hopes to uccomrlish nnythiug, and when de does that his platform becomes   subordinate to the platform of his party.    But even the platform of n pnrty is of   minor consideration, for it, tos, is subjeot to the superior inlluncc of  the party's record und
general reputation.    The private member becomes absorbed iu the party, nnd
bis platform becomes uo longer of any
aooounL    So  far as it ngrees with bis
party's platform he may remain faithful to it, nut  beyond   thnt  he  cannot
go.    He   ends in being what his party
Is.    Perhaps   Mr. Houston   has   taken
tbe   pains   to   reason   thn   matter out
something after this fashion, and realising the utter futility ot  his platform
concluded to store it away in tho lumber-room.
Whioh is Mr. Houston's paity? Who
are tho political leaders with which
he proposes to associate himself? This
is the questiou of greatest importance,
and it is tbo ono to which a delinite
answer should be obtained before we
deoide to commit our political fortunes
to his hands for tbo next Legislntivo
term. He bus been before un as a candidate for a fortnight or more, during
which time he hns prated of the Provincial Party and squinted violently
in the direction of the Martiu Party.
With which is his lot to bo cast? It
would be lolly to pledge a vote to him
until we know. Mr. Houston's character is not of a kind to iuspiie a very
great degree of confidence, and although a declaration of political faith
might not tie him down it is well to
have it as a sort of collateral to a very j
poor security.
Consistently witb his character as
ngitntor and demagogue, Mr. Houston
declares in his Address that he is opposed to any modification of the Eight-
Honr law, but would enforce it aB it
is. At a meeting of tbe Vancouver
Trades and Labor Council, held a few
nights ago, a platform was adopted
whose second plank is as follows:
"That eight houis shall constitute a
day's work." They do not say, as Mr.
Houstou says for them, that they
should be deprived of the liberty to
work longer hours if they desire it.
All they stipulate for is that eight
hours shall be tbe legal day. There
may be occasions in plenty when tbey
would prefer to work longer hours, as
n matter of arrangement between
themselves nud their employers, and
they would hnve the way open to do
this; but Mr. Houston would deny
them this liberty by maintaining a
hard and fast law which makes it a
misdemeanor to earn an extra dollar a
day. 	
It ib said tbnt Mr. Cotton will offer
as a eundidato in Vancouver. Mr.
Mnrtin could not wish anything better
than this, for it would insure his own
election, which is now doubtful, and
it would exhibit Mr. Cotton in tbe
oharaoter of a wrecker like himself.
We do not think Mr. Cotton will thus
play iuto the hands of hiB arch enemy.
There is greater probability that he
will retire from tho Provincial field,
as was bo generally rumored last
woek. He may keep up a pretence for
a time longer, but when nominations
come he will not be iu evidence. This
will mako it all the easier for Mr.
Houston to drift into his natural plane
as tho Martin candidate for Nelson.

There havo beeu more deaths from

gone to great trouble to distribute
poisoned meat throughout the Oity,
with the result that about a rio/.on
dogs have been killed. They wero all

It was a dastardly act. If the perpetrators of it can be discovered tbe town
Hhould rejoioe to see them punished
with tho utmost rigor of the law.

ago Rogers was arraigned at that
time on the -marge, but for want of
conclusive evidence the prosecution
lapsed. Not long ago it transpired
thnt Rogers had sold a watoh about
that time to John Molntvre, of Hall
Siding. It turned out to be tbe watoh
in question and nooordingly Rogers
wns giveu a preliminary bearing yes-
lerduv ou tho charge. The Italian testified" thnt. Rogers had come iuto his
house whore tho watch wns banging
on the wall, and sinoe tbeu the watoh
had disappeared. The Italian's son
alsj testified that Rogers had beeu the
only person who had been iu the house
on that day. Both the man and his
son identified the watoh as tbe ono
stolen. Mclntyre, who keeps a hotel at
Hall Siding, testified that R gem had
sold him the watch nbout a year ago,
nnd identified the watoh in Conit as
the one he had had. The prisoner
when asked if he had any questions to
nsk, put a few'to Mclntyre, and in doing so got himself into further trouble,
for he bronght out'the faot that he hid
been arrested by oue of Mclntyre's
guests on tbe oharge of tbe theft of
money. Ho boars a bad record, having
teen n number of times up jail. After
hearing all the evidence Magistrate
Crease committed him for tiinl nt the
present ABsies and he was taken bnok
to the Provincial Jail.

A GREAT   SUCCESS.
Pinafore Again Presented to a Crowded
Hoiihb.
With the thirteen hundred odd dollars oolleoed by Messrs. Ferguson nnd
Ernst, the 81,COO voted by the Oity
Council, the proceeds of tho perform-
nnoe given in aid of it last night ami
the subscriptions that will vet come in
Nelson's contribution to the Sandon
lite relief fund will he ono worthy of
the ohief city of the Kootenays. Evory
inch of available space in the Oporii
House was occupied last night aud
thosu present were there as much to
swell the fund as to enjoy the splendid performance that was given. Pin-
iifore was produced with all tho even-
ess and excellence thnt characterized
the previous porfontnncos nnd was
thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, ns was
evidenced by the generous applause
wbich greeted the prinoipals and chorus. The stage setting wns, as usual,
perfect in evory detail and vory ntract-
ive. Lost night's production was no
doubt tbo last of Pinafore in Nelson,
and those connected witb it deserve
every praise for the manner in which
they carried it through. It was a hnp-
py thought to givo it in aid of the
fire fnnd and thnt the puhlio thought
so wns best evidenced by the very
large house. It is impossible yet to
say just how much will be realized, ns
the returns from those who sold tickets are not yet in. It is known that u
great many tickets were purchased an<!
not used. The Miner will piobnbly be
in a position tomorrow morniug to
give a statement of the receipts aud
expenditures, and it will certainly
shown vary lmndsonio balance in favor
of the fund.
THE ALHAMBRA MINES.
A New Mining Company to Be Organized iu Nelson.
A new mining company to be called
the Alhamlrd Mining Company, Ltd.,
will be organised by Messrs. L. L.
Merrifie'd nnd Fredrio Burnett, who
are already interested in the Venus
Miues. These gentlemen have acquired
fonr claims on Eagle C'renk, adjoining
tbe Granite Mines. They were pur-
chaiel from Messrs. Johnson and
Holm and NeilBon Bros., and are now
known as the Toronto, Viking, Mnggie
and Champion olaims. They hnvo been
located for five youis nnrt sufficient
work has been done to Crown grant
the olaims. The A|bnmbrn Company
will have a very rich property, ns nil
three ledges whioh have been developed show up the most promising values.
They run very high iu copper and gold
iu an ore of both a free milling and a
concentrating nature.
Two shafts hnve been sunk on tbe
No. 1 ledge and thiee crosscuts hnve
been made. These explorations prove
that the nature of tbe ore in this
leoge, which runs through all four
claims, is identical with that of the
Granite Mines, being white qnsrtz
and sulphide of Iron. On the No. 1,
or middle ledge, two slinfts have been
sunk, one II? feet am! the other 75 feet.
Tbe lodge has also been crosscut with
tbe same result ns to the continuity of
the vein. At the bottom nf the 95 foot
ehnft the ore body is twelve feet wide.
Tbo No. 1 ledge contains two distinct veius, one carrying a large percentage of oarbonatos of oopper and the
other white quartz with sulphides of
iron.
The No. il lidgo is of the same quality as the No. 1, and carries a high
percentage of sulphides and oxide ol
iron.
Altogether the property givos grent
promise and active work will bo commenced at once by the gentlemen who
will organize the   company.
