GOOD MEN TO LEAVE AT HOME.
Messrs. Clifford and Irving, the candidal ps for Caasiar, have issued an address to their prospective supporters
which in calculated to win the support «'
even the dead voters of Cassi ir. After
telling how they are opposed to the 8-
Hour Law, the government ownership
of railroads and the antagonising of capital, they burst into poetry over thf ir
own perfection. This partis worth quoting; it runs:
" 'Men whom the lust of office cannot kilt
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy.
Men who possess opinions aud a will.
Men who love honor, men who will oat
lie.'
,; We are men of this stamp. Therefore
we ask you, as intelligent men, to reelect us. C. W. D. Clifford is ti Conser-
vative and believes that we shall have
purer legislation when party lines are
introduced. The Conservatives being in
powerf'.'), will be spurred on hy the Liberals ; and tbe Liberals, if holding the
reins, will be held back and prevented
by the wisdom of the Conservatives from
running down a steep placa and perishing. We shall see tho liberals "learning fiom the wisdom of age' acd have the
Conservatives 'cheered by the sallies ot
youth.' "

BIC  OPERATIONS
Trying to Take the Boer Convojs-
Repulse'at Mafeking.
London, May 2.—It is difficult to
unravel the tangled stories  coming
from the neighborhood  of Thaban-
chu,   but   apparently   the    British
forces are engaged   in a  movement
having for its object  the  hemming
in of the Boers still in that district.
While Generals French and Rundle
are holding   the  Boers at Thaban-
chu, General  Broadwood's  cavalry
has been .pushing on   Hout nek  in
the hope of intercepting the  federal
convoys   between   Ladybrand and
Winburg. As Gen. Botha has been
reinforced there is every prospect of
sharp fighting. <
The new scene of operations and
the general movements of the various columns are taken to indicate
that Lord Roberts is deploying his
armv preparatory to beguiling his
northern march.
It now seems likely that it is the
commander-in-chief's intention to
: advance simultaneously from Kim-
' berly, Bloemfontein and Ladysmith,
' with the view of preventing the
Boers from concentrating their
. forces at any given point.
Will End lu Six Week*.
I A dispatch from Bloemfontein,
dated yesterday, chronicles the pre-
• vailing opinion among the townspeople there than the war is not likely to last more that six weeks after
the British advance shall begin.

A dispatch  from   Pretoria gives
the text of President Kruger's proclamation, expelling British   subjects
; from the Transvaal.    It says:
"As   numerous   burghers   insist
upon the removal of the British and
as  the government  is  desirous of
■ complying with the  wishes  of   the
'burghers and  others  favorable  to
the republic, all Britishers  residing
, in the district and town of Pretoria
and the Witwaters Rand gold fields, j
must leave the state within 36 hours |
from noon April 30.    Exception will
be made in the  case  of  those   obtaining special permits."
Casualty List al Thaba JVrlm.
Lord Roberts forwards a list of
Ian Hamilton's force on April 30 as
follows: Killed—Major Showers,
■ Lieutenant Parker and one private.
Wounded—Eour officers and five
men. Missing—Two officers and
ten men.
NaleklnK'* Gallant Defence.
i
A dispatch from Mafeking, describing the Boers attack on April
• r, says:
"The bombardment of the  Creu-
sots was the hottest of  the   siege.
Many shells  entered  the   hospital
and women's laager. Under cover of
the artillery a large force commanded by Cronje  the younger,  including the   German   corps,   advanced
close to Fort Abrams.     The garrison lay low until the Boer force was
at close range, when  they  fired  a
volley,   killing five and   wounding
many.    The attack  was  repulsed.
The   bombardment    then    ceased.
The Boers, under a Red Cross flag,
were permitted later to recover their
dead."
The Queen Inspects *** vul BrlKade
Windsor is in holiday attire today
and decorated from end to end,   in
honor of the  naval  brigade of tin.
British cruiser Powerful, which  assisted in the defense of  Ladysmith.
■The naval men have been summoned to the palace to be inspected  by
the queen.    The band of the Grenadier Guards met the  naval   brigade
at the  railroad station  and played
them to the castle through cheering
throngs of people.    Capt. Lambton
and  the   officers  of the  Powerful
were presented to her majesty, who
thanked Capt.   Lambton    and   the
brigade for their  noble  services  to
the empire. The captain replied that
what they had done was nothing  to
what the navy was prepared  to  do
for her  majesty.     The queen saw
the blue jackets  entertained at dinner.
Forced a War Through.
Thaba Nchu, May a.  Afternoon.
—General Hamilton's division   was
engaged yesterday and today in
forcing a passage northward. At
Houtnek the Boer front had a
line of hills commanding the sides
of the nek. The Canadians and
Gordens attacked the hill to the
left, and the Shropshires and Marshall's horse, supported by a battery, also made an attack on the
enemy, who eventually fled, leaving
mar.y wounded, and the passage
was cleared.
The Boers on the mountain are
now shelling the. outlying camp,
necessitating removal to another
place. The Boers have three guns
on the hill to the eastward of this
place, outside the range of the
British artillery. The Boer shelling is not doing any damage. The
enemy retained their positions and
the British are not attempting to
dislodge them.
General Hamilton, by reaching
Houtnek, after a full day's fighting,
secured the Thaba Nchu-Bloemfon-
tein road.

New Vork, May 2.—The   Herald
and   the   Journal   and    Advertiser
print today special cables from London and Rome  respectively,   which
say that two letters, one from King
Agrippa to  Christ   and   the   other
from the Savior to the  king in  reply—letters referred to by Eusebius
in the  fourth   century—have   been
discovered   after   being   lost    903
years.   The letter Irom King Agrippa to Christ reads:
"I have heard of Thee   and   the
cures    wrought   by   Thee  without
herb or medicine, for it  is  reported
that Thou  restorest sight   to   the
blind  and makest  the  lame walk,
cleanest the leper, raisest the  dead,
castest out devils and unclean spirits and healest those  that are   tormented of diseases of a long continuance.    Hearing  all  this  of Thee,
I was fully  persuaded   that   Thou
art the very God come  down  from
heaven to do such miracles,   or that
Thou art the Son of God and   per-
formest them. Therefore I have sent
Thee a few lines entreating Thee to
I come hither and cure  my diseases.
Besides, hearing that the Jews murmur against Thee  and  continue  to
do Thee mischief, I invite Thee  to
my city, which is but  a 'little  one,
but is   beautiful and sufliient to entertain us both."
Christ's reply to the above reads:
"Blessed art  thou  for  believing
Me, whom thou hast not  seen,   for
it is written of Me  that  they  that
have seen Me shall not believe, and
they that have  not  seen   Me shall
believe and be saved.    But concerning the  matter  thou  hast   written
about, this is to acquaint thee  that
all things  for   which   I   was  sent
hither must be fulfilled  and  then  I
shall be taken   up   and   return  to
Him that sent me.     But after  My
ascension I will send one of My disciples that  shall  cure  thee  of  thy I
distemper and give life to  all  them '
that are with thee."
The Journal and Advertiser says:
"The special  cable  from   Rome
purports to prove the truth of a tradition that is almost as  ancient as
Christianity.    Of course the Journal
cannot vouch for the  truth   of   the
statements which were made yesterday, April 30,  by  Professor   Broh-
mann of the Vienna  university,  to
the Archeological congress in Rome,
but they are ol intense interest."
A MISTAKEN VIEW.
In the debate in parliament on
the amendment to the Cape Scott &
Comox railroad bill excluding Chinese and Japanese from employment
on the road, Mr. Bell, of Prince
Edward Island, said:
"It would be contrary to our interests to do what would be construed as an act of hostility by the
people of either country, and this
house ought to hesitate before committing itself to an act which would
involve a policy of hostility against

trade relations, and with which we
hope to have better trade relations
in the future.
"There  is another reason.   The
Canadian Pacific railway has  been
built across this  country largely by
Chinese   labor.    At   any   rate,  its
construction has been  expedited by
Chinese   labor.      All the   railways
across the American continent have
been built largely by Chinese labor.
These Chinese, say  what you  like
about them,have been a great benefit to this continent,  and,   I   think,
it would be ungrateful on our  part,
not to recognize the  benefit  these
people have   done  in the past, and
attempt  to    exclude     them   from
working   on   the   construction   of
railways.    I do not think it   will be
in the  interests of the  country or
even  the  province of British  Columbia,  to take  the step  proposed
by this amendment,  and   for these
reasons I am opposed to it."
In the language of the street, this
is all tommyrot. In the first place,
there is no reason to believe that, if

Salt Lake. Utah,  May  2.—Two
hundred or more lives were  lost  in
the explosion in mine No. 4  of the
Pleasant Valley Coal company yesterday    at Schofleld,  Utah.    One
hundred  and   thirty-seven    bodies
have already been recovered.    The
work of rescuers is still  proceeding
although tnere is no hope that   any
of the men who are unaccounted for
escaped death.    The scene  ot  the
disaster is just outside this place on
the line of the Rio Grande Western
railroad.
The explosion which .occured   in
the winter quarters of the  mines
is attributed by some to the blowing
up of a number of cans  of blasting
powder.    A special train was  sent
from Salt Lake bearing.Superinten-
dent Sharpe, of the coal company,
Superintendent   Wilby of the   railroad company, and  some ^doctors.
As   fast as bodies are  reached
they are   taken   to   the   boarding
houses  and  other company   buildings, where they are dressed  and
prepared for the coroner's inquest.
These    buildings  are   numerous
and in each'are from 10 to 15   bodies which Jare   laid  in   long   rows.
To those which   have  been   identified    are  tags   with    names   and
addresses.    These await the   coming of relatives  or friends.    Two

H.<:.MINK HAM A NAHBOW ESCAPE
Forest fire Almoin  Reaches Powder
House and Mini l House.
Grand Forks, May 2.—The office,
shaft and powder houses of the   B.
C. mine in Summit camp had a narrow escape from destruction by fire
yesterday.    A heap of brush   along
the railway spur near the dump was
being burned, and the sparks  carried by the  wind   ignited   the adjacent dry grass,   trees, cordwood,
stumps etc.    Soon it extended over
several acres.    The  heat  was  terrific.
All the miners above ground were
formed into a bucket brigade, directed by Superintent Scrafford and
Accountant Mackintosh.
A fire hose did good  service   but
the flames were  not checked  until
they had reached within twenty feet
of the powder house,   where  thou -
sands of pounds of explosives  were
stored.    One shack was destroyed,
and the occupant,   a  miner, had  a
narrow escape.     Standing on   the
spur were a number of cars   loaded
with dynamite.     They  received  a
scorching, but were shifted down
the track in time.
After    half an  hours  work  the
wind shifted in  an  opposite  direction.    The Are then swept through
I dry trees and finally exhausted it-

obtaining  railroad and  other con
cessions there.    If the British government goes about exclusion in  a
proper manner, so that the Chinese
and Japanese governments will not
regard its action as a  slap  in   the
face, no hostile feeling would ensue.
As  to  the alleged debt of gratitude due  the  Chinese for  building
the   C.   P.    R.,   that is   a fiction.
While the Chinese were paid  lower
wages than are current in this country for white  men,   they  were paid
much more than  they   would   have
received in their own country. They
got their money and most  of them
took it back to China and no gratitude goes along with it.    Certainly,
none is due those who are  coming
in   now.    If   there   should  be any
shortage of labor in  Canada, it can
be made up in the United Kingdom
or the United States, among white
men.
The trouble  with  Mr.   Bell and
men from  his  section is that  they

a London cable. Mr. Treves took

'•So far as the sick are concerned,
there are only two plagues in South

plague of women. The flies we
get rid of by horsewhips, and other
appliances, and the flies at least
depart at night. But the women
are absolutely and really a terror.
They came out in the guise of
amateur nurses, after having exhausted every other form of excitement. Considering that we
are engaged in a war, the number
of well-dressed ladies at Capetown
and elsewhere giving picnics is a
blot on the campaign."
This onslaught on the fad of society electrified the audience and is
certain to provoke bitter recriminations,

Patriot!* Fund Over a Quarter million
Ottawa, April 30.—The   patriotic
lund to date  amounts to $253,705.
London, April 30.—2:30 p. m.—
The latest news received here from
the Orange Free State indxates
that, though the Boers have evacuated Thabanchu, they have done so
to occupy stronger positions. General Dewet on April 29 made an
effort to turn General French's eastern flank and was foiled by the cavalry, only after vigorous maneuvering. The Boers hold the ridges to
the eastward, whence they will
probably fall back when the pressure of superior numbers increases.
The British casualties sustained during the Thabanchu fighting were
slight.
General French's object, now
that all chance of catching the main
bodies of the burghers has disappeared, is to harrass the Boers and
prevent any well-organized   retreat.

Startling Piece of Diplomacy.
New York, May 1.—The Times
today prints a long article of startling importance. It professes to
have found the motive which
urged Secretary of the War Root,
at the Grant dinner of last week,
to hint at the possibility of the
Uuited States being foiced to go
to war to maintain the Monroe
doctrine. It is said that the facts
which led up to Mr. Root's remark,
are contained in an official report
just submitted to the Danish government by Captain W. Von Christinas Birchinck-Holmfoeld. The
captain was the special envoy of
his government to negotiate the
sale of the islands to the United
States, and his report, which has
been put in the hands of Mr. Hoer-
ring, the prime minister and minister of finance, states that the
failure of the negotiations is due to
the interference of Henry H. Rogers, one of the directors of the
Standard Oil company,
According to the Times, the first
appearance of Mr. Rogers in the
Danish West Indies was about
three years ago, just prior to the
breaking out of the war with Spain.
Mr. Rogers, by letter and through
the agents of the Standard Oil
company in Denmark, among them
Niel S. Green, made a proposition
to the Danish government that, for
a consideration of ten per cent of
the purchase price, he would undertake the sale of the Danish West
Indian islands, St. John, St. Croix
and St. Thomas, to 'the United
States. Mr. Rogers stated to the
Danish government that he was in
a position to do what he proposed,
on account of his influ enee and the
influence of his company with I'nited States senators.
After an investigation, Mr. Hoer-
ring called together a council of
some of the most prominent members of the Danish parliament and
a number of prominent business
men of Copenhagen. Among the
latter was C. W. Hagerman, a
former resident of the United States
and an old friend of Mr. Rogers.
Hagerman impressed upon the
council the strength of Mr. Rogers'
claim, and it was accordingly decided to give Rogers permission to
act in the matter as the representative of the Danish government, but
without any billet to that effect.
Then Mr. Rogers, it is asserted,
went on with the negotiations till
the breaking out of the Spanish
war stopped them.
But in the early part of 189c),
Captain Christmas was approached
by a syndicate of Germans, who
asked him to use his influence in
Copenhagen to obtain from the
Danish government a contract with
Germany, by which the latter could
purchase the island of St. John.
Captain Christmas asserted that
this would be next to impossible.
The United States would neither
allow Denmark to sell the island to
a foreign power, nor would it allow
Germany to purchase it, because of
the Monroe doctrine. He then laid
the matter before his government,
the outcome being that the permission was denied Oa diplomatic
grounds, the Danish government
recognizing that, should any complications arise, the sale of the
islands to the United States would
be next to impossible. This led to
Captain Christmas coming to America as the authorized agent of the
Danish government lor the sale of
the islands.

It is Impending on the New York
Central System.
New York, April 30.—Commissioner Francis Deleganty, of the
state board of mediation, arrived in
this city from Buffalo this morning
to confer with Superintendent
Wyatt, of the New York Central
railroad, in the hope of preventing
a general strike on the Central
system. He is reported to have
said:
"The situation is extremely
serious. The only hope I have of a
general strike being avoided is the
making of concessions by the officials of the Central. Unless they
meet the demands of the men, there
will be a general strike. I can say
nothing further until I have seen
Superintendent Wyatt."
All of the employees of the New
York Central were reticent. Many
of them declared that they had no
grievances and that the conductors
and trainmen were not regularly
organized, their organization having been broken up by the big
strike on the Central system.
To Be Tried lor Wile murder.

A IMS AM III TO THE PHOVINCE

Martin's  Success—mining Outlook.
Montreal, April 30.—Hon. C. H.
Mackintosh is in the city, in an
interview the ex-lieutenant-governor
of the Northwest territories says he
is convinced that Hon. Joe Martin's
government will be defeated at the
polls in British Columbia. He
considers that the election of Martin's government would be a disaster to the province.
Regarding mining, Mr. Mackintosh spoke hopefully of its outlook.
Being asked about the Centre Star
and War Eagle,   said:
"These mines are all right. I
should think their new machinery
would be installed by the end of
June, and by that time their united
output will be about seven hundred
tons per day."

MISCELLANEOUS  NOTES.
The Fenian invasion of. Canada
has fizzled down to three men armed
with sticks of dynamite. The invading army has found its Paardeberg.
When it comes to dodging an issue, the sultan is in expert, but he
has met the champion bill collector
in your Uncle Samuel.
The Canadians won* fresh praise
at Israel's Poort and must be stepping high.

ON THi: PEOPLE'S SIDE.
It is now an assured tact thnt
Robert P. Green, our late member,
will oiler himself as an Independent
candidate for the next Legislature in
the ensuing election, and his election
address will be presented to the
electors   within   a   few days.
Such beini; the case, The SlLVER-
tonun hereby announces itself as
once again a supporter .of "Bob'
Green. We do this believing that
Mr. Green lias proved himself an
upright, fearless member; one who has
been untiring in his efforts in safeguarding the interests of his constituents and into whose hands the
interests tit tho people could safely
be trusted.
The Silvkhtoxiajt enters the fight
oh Mr. Green's behalf feeling confident
tliat he will succeed himself as
Slocan's member, and believing that
wo can consistently endorse his
candidature. In this fight, as in every
other in which we have engaged, we
will be found on the people's sidi.
that their particular party ever did or     V Reader,
ever could do anything wrong.
A    SENSIBLE     STAND.
Ralph Smith, the labor leader ami
the candidate for Nanaimo, is not a
Martin man but takes a sensible view
of the situation. He says that while
he does not expect to see -Martin returned at the head of a government,
if he should bo and shows his willingness to fullfi! his election pledges, lie
would support him.
Few will disagree with Ralph Smith
over taking this stand, as Martin's
platform on the whole is good, as is
likewise the platforms of the two parties opposing liim.

SANDON'S CALAMITY.
Sandon the commercial centre of the
greatest silver-lead district in the
Dominion has been overtaken by a
calamity, in the form of fire, the extent of which in proportion to the
extent of the place ig far greater than
that of any other fire that has visited
onr province for some time. By this
tire one of the most enterprising and
progressive cities of the west has been
practically blotted off the map and
scores of pushing, honest businessmen
placed at the mercy of their creditors.
Through this calamity hundreds
in all conditions of life have lost their
all and have been driven with their
families almost destitute to face anew
the world and make a fresh start in
life. But tho business men of Sandon
belong to that class of men, only
found iu the west, who instead of
sitting down and giving up in despair
look the world squarely in the faee
and by pure pluck and energy carve
provinces out of the wilderness and
force nature   to yield   up its treasures
THE TWO CANDIDATES,
During the past week the political
atmosphere in the Slocun Riding, hsfi
cleared considerably and instead of
there being three or four candidates
in the field tho tight has narrowed
down to two, The two candidates
for political honors upon 'vlioin the
electors will pass judgement nt the
polls on June the ninth next, are
Robert F. Green and John Seene
both of Kaslo, each of whom has
bis own warm personal and political
friends. As between the two there
can be but little doubt as upon
whom will fall the honor of representing the Slocun Riding in our next
Provincial Parliament. Robert F.
Green, who for the last two years Im*
represented and safeguarded tlie interests of the Slocan electors in our local
legislature, will be sustained at the
polls by the voters by even a large'
majority than that by which he wus
returned when last before the electors
asking for their votes.

John Houston, who us running in the
Nelson Riding for the Legislature, is
still as always before lighting tbe
workwoman's battles and the workingmen should vote for him at lhe
ensuing election. They should elec'
Houston to the legislature and they wiii
have a man there who will saiegu&rri
and prottct their interests. It, is tlie
least they could do for a man who ha
done so much for  them.
The purging of tho voters list is a
good and proper thing,' but when any
party of men form r. conspiracy for
partisan purposes to disfranchise half
of our citizens, they should be turned
down ot the polil so hard that even
they will realize that the people know
