WHOLESALE AND RETAIL DEALERS IN ALL
KINDS OE FRESH  AND SALT MEATS
At the regular meeting of the Silverton Miners* Union held on Saturday
May 2Gth 1900, a resolution was introduced and carried hy a unanimous
vote declaring that the interests of the miners and all other wage earners
would bc best served hy the election of 11. F. Green, the Independent Provincial Party candidate, at tho ensuing election.
Therefore it is resolved that this resolution be given as much publicity ns
possible in order that all who have the Interests of the workingman at hcait
and are striving for just und good government may know the stand taken by
the woikiiiginen of Silverton. We therefore recommend that all workingmen
iu the Slocan Riding use their votes and influence to bring about the election
of Robert F. Green aud wc further ask that every member of this Union
come to the polls on election day and cant their votes, as they owe it as a
sacred duty to f.'.ie Cause, themselves and their Country.
We lake this action is consideration of the fact that R, F. Green has been
a conscientious worker in the cause of good government and a staunch supporter
of the Eight-hour law and surely deserves re-election ut the hands ot Unpeople.
We further more b lieve that this election is practically a plebiscite ou the
E'glit-liour law and that the defeat of II. E. Green would mean its repeal and
another labor struggle. So we ask all the friends of labor to cast tbeir vot{.s
accordingly.

should briefly state some of the principles
whicli I have advocated and shall continue to advocate until ihey aro incorporated in Provincial Legislation.

Newcastle, May 30.—The following proclamation has been issued
by the general in command:
"The troops of the Queen are
now passing through the Transvaal. Her Majesty does not war
upon individuals, but, on the con-
irary, she i.s anxious to spare them,
so far as possible, the horrors ol
war.
"The quarrel which England has
is with the government, and not the
people, of the Transvaal. Provided
they remain neutral, no attempt will
be made to interfere with people
living near the line of march. Every
possible protection will be given
them. Any of their property which
it may be necessary to take will be
paid for.
"But, on the other hand, those
thus allowed to remain near the line
of march must respect and maintain
neutrality. The residents of any
locality will be held responsible, in
both their persons and property, for
any damage done to the railway or
telegraph, or for violence done to
any member of the British forces in
the vicinity of their homes."

to the officers ol the relief columns.
During the course of a speech proposing the queen's health, the defender of Mafeking remarked that
he felt he could "drink the health of
Paul Kruger himself, coupled with
that of Cecil Rhodes," adding, "because Kruger has been the cause of
the present great outburst of imperial feeling, and Rhodes was the
red rag to the bull, which drew him
on."

imperial palace car. Large godowns
(Chinese wharehouses) full of valuable merchandise were burned after
having been looted by rioters. The
damage done is estimated at half a
million ' taels. The neighboring
villages seem to have joined in the
attack, showing that the rising
against the government i.s not confined to the Boxers. Eight rioters
who were captured will be decapitated.
Riding through the south gate of
Pekin, the correspondent found the
road inside the walls lined with
troops, who greeted the traveler and
his party with a fusilade of stones.
The whole country is seething
with excitement and it i.s hard to
forotell the course of events.
Shanghai, May 30.—The British
warships Orlando and Algerine are
landing 100 men at Taku, where
the French, Russian and Japanese
guards have  already  disembarked.
The Boxers are apparently without arms except those they have ob-

that this was a step towards preparing for "any eventualities arising from the crisis in Prance." According to the Brit sh war office the

The defence urged that proceedings
were now pending in chancery relative to alleged breaches of trust
under the Peel settlements and that
the present proceedings ought to be
suspended in the interim.
But the magistrate committed
the baronet for trial, accepting his
own recognizances tor his appearance. ,

London, May 30.—At the second
day's racing of the Epsom summer
meeting today, the race for the
Derby stakes of 6,000 sovereigns
was won by the I'rince of Wales'
Diamond Jubilee. Simon Dale
was second and Disguise II, third.
The conditions of lhe race were as
follows:
The Derby stakes of 6,000 sovereigns by subscription of 50 sovereigns each, half forfeit, 25 sovereigns only if declared by the first
Tuesday in January, 1899, for
three year olds, the nominator of
the winner to receive 500 sovereigns, the owner of the second
horse 300 sovereigns, and the owner
of the third 200 sovereigns out of
the stakes, distance about one mile
and a half.
The entries closed July 18, 1898.
There were 602 subscribers. The
following was the result in detail:
The Prince of Wales' B. C. Diamond Jubilee, by St. Simons, out of
Perdita II (II. Jones), 1; the Duke
of Portland's B. C. Simon Dale, by
St. Simons, out of" Ismay (M. Cannon.) 2; James R. Keene's B C.

The scenes and incidents along
the Epsom road on Derby dav differ
little from another Derby day, but

city, was a feature of the sporting
holiday. On the downs portraits of

A'erc marked and distinctive features
of the day's jollification. Although
the weather was not promising, tho
exodus from London was hardly less
remarkable than in previous years.
Thc Epsom road was congested by
every variety of vehicle, while the
trains had difficulty in carrying the
throngs blockading all the stations.
A large number of Americans
patronized the coaches.
The Prince and Princess of Wales,
the Duke and Duchess of Vork, the
Duke and Duchess of Connaught,
the Duke of Cambridge and Prince
Christianof Schleswig-Holstein went
to Epsom by special train. The Aus
tralian federation delegates traveled
on the same train. King Oscar of
Sweden and Norway was expected
to accompany the Prince of Wales,
but was indisposed.
At Epsom unusual crowds were
on the hill and downs. The club
and other stands and the enclosures
showed the effects of the war in a
marked decrease in number of fashionable people present. Many hun-
dieds of regular Derby visitors are in
South Africa. Thc day, therefore,
was not only shorn of much of its
military interest, but the friends and
relatives of officers at the front refrained from attending.

The coroner's jury Tuesday even-

the death of Mali I.i„, who was
found dead on the afternoon of May

he was employed:
"From the evidence produced,
we find that thc deceased, Mali

that the said shot was fired from a

body of the deceased was found."
Thc police are making vigorous
efforts to discover who fired the

PKIMiKKIN   OP   ZALA   MINK
Ledge  Widening  on   300-foot Level-.
«rral Bod j .in Sight.
A satisfactory report on the condition of the Zala mine was made
to the directors by Superintendent
D, M. Snyder on May 21. He
states that the upraise from the
300 to the 150-foot level was completed on April 17, giving thorough
ventilation and drainage to a depth
of 312 feet on the pitch of the vein.
The vein averages 3 feet wide
between the levels, with values as
good as in other workings.
The south drift had reached a
distance of 150 feet from the cross-
c ut tunnel and the showing was
most highly encouraging. The
ledge averaged 3 feet 3 inches for
110 feet, then began to widen and
for the last 40 feet was from 5 to 8
feet wide. He believes a still stron-
er body of ore will be met 150 feet
further south, there being a body of
quartz on the surface above this
point, which carries much characteristic high grade ore. He has
thoroughly explored the croppings
and found the vein continuous to
the south limits of the claim.
Mr. Snyder expresses the conviction that the whole body of
quartz can be treated on the spot at
a large profit and that with some
sorting a considerable quantity ot
high grade ore can be obtained.
He estimates that there are 12,000
tons of ore in sight. He gives a
table of assays, showing a value of
$262 at a point 25 feet up the raise
and general samples from the south
drift ranging from $13.48 to $69,
the bulk of the value being in silver.
The value of the 14 tons shipped
was $134.93 silver and $9.12 gold
per ton.

THE INEVITABLE.
In explaining the impossibility of
American intervention in South Africa, the Salt Lake Tribune says:
"England has a vast territory in
South Africa outside of the so-called
free states, and this war means that
South Africa must be all English or
all   Boer,  because  when President
Kruger began  the war he did not
begin with  the  intention of merely
establishing    the   independence of
the Transvaal and the Orange Free
State, but Cape Colony as well. And
that, in the very nature of things,
was an impossibility from the  first,
because   it    would    mean  such a
breaking of prestige and  such   a
humiliation   to  Great  Britain that,
were England to admit  it, her influence in the  world's   work would
be nil; there would not be a  nation
of Europe that would  respect her;
there would not be one wild tribe in
Asia or Africa  that  would   not   be
willing to accept the belief that she,
as   a   world   power, had  ceased to
exist."
That states the case precisely.
When the Boers not meiely declared war, but carried the war into
British territory, pretended to annex it and stirred up rebellion
among the Queen's Dutch subjects,
it became necessary for Great Britain not merely to drive out the invaders but to utterly destroy them
as independent states. This was
necessary in order that there might
remain no nucleus of disaffection
from which the conflict]might be
renewed. This condition of affairs
made the war as much a struggle
for the suppression of rebellion and
the extirpation of its smallest roots
as it was a conflict with independent or semi-independent states.
By their own act the Boers mad;
any middle course impossible. Had
the Transvaal simply refused the
concessions demanded by the imperial government and had British
troops been sent into the country
to enforce the demands of the suzerain power, matters would have
assumed a very different form. The
Transvaal government might have
been allowed to continue with the
changes necessary to ensure equal
rights to all nationalities, with the
disarmament of its fortresses and
the establishment of British garrisons in its principal cities. No pretext would have existed for any attack on the independence of the
Orange Free State. It is evident
that in their vaulting ambition to
establish an Afrikander confedera
tion, the Boers rushed to their own
destruction and, when their republics become British crown colonies,
they will have nobody to thank but
themselves. But they may ultimately thank the British government, when they have learned to
appreciate the blessings of British
law and liberty and have had an
opportunity to make the comparison with Krugerism.
The Boer peace envoys will ship
a cargo of sympathy from the United States for use in the defense of
Pretoria when the British army besieges that city. It will not be declared contraband of war at Lorenzo
Maiques.
ACROSS THE VAAL
Queen's Birthday Celebrated by Invasion of Transvaal.
London, May 26.—The warol-
fice has received the following dispatch from Lord Roberts:
"Wolvehoek, Orange Free
State—The advanced portion of
this force crossed the Vaal river on
the Queen's birthday near Parys.
Hamilton's column is at Boschbank.
Our scouts are now at Viljoen's
Drift, on the frontier north of
Wolvehoek. The local mines are
uninjured and working on as usual.
There is no enemy this side of the
river.
"Hunter reached Vryburg May
24."
Will Dashou the Hal I road.
London, May 26.—As anticipated, the first news after a long silence from Lord Roberts was the
announcement that the British had
crossed the Vaal river. This is
probably Gen. Hutton's column,
which crossed at Parys and may be
expected to make a dash at the
railroad in the neighborhood of
Potchefstroom, whence there is direct communication with Johannesburg.
General Hamilton's command is
at Boschbank, which is close to the
river and about eight miles northwest of Wolvehoek.
Will Alia, li Johannesburg Nc*l.
Roberts' headquarters may be expected to also cross the Vaal river
and create a diversion on the flank
ot any federal force in the neighborhood of Vereeniging. As he has
only about 15 miles to travel, a
speedy announcement may be expected that the British commander-
in-chief himself has gained a foothold in the Transvaal and that he
will move on the federal position
south of Johannesburg in the middle of the coming week.
Ilnudle aud Buller to Co-operate
Rundle ought to be close to
Bothley by now and it is expected
that we shall hear of a decisive action on the Harrismith railway, in
which part of Buller's force will cooperate, in the direction of Van
Reenen's pass.
Should the Pretoria bulletin announcing the re-occupation of Heil-
bron by the federals be true, it will
be a totally unexpected development,
as Gtn. Hamilton occupied Heil-
bron Tuesday and nothing has
been heard from there since.

Newcastle, Friday, May 25.—
Louis Koch, magistrate of the Free
State, has surrendered. He says
that all burghers in the Harnsmith-
Vrede district have returned to their
farms and refuse to continue fighting. If, as reported, President
Steyn is in Yrede, he will probably
go northward towards Laing's Nek,
if he finds any followers.

with the free passage of Chinese

Fatal Nhootlug All my.
St Louis, Mo., May 28.—As the
result of an encounter last night between striking and working employes of the Transit system, three
men were shot, one being fatally,
and others seriously wounded. Accounts   of   the affair differ.    Some
bystanders claim that it was a deliberate attempt at assassination on
the part of the company's new employes, while others aver that it was
nothing more or less than a pitched
battle between the two factions.
Three unknown men made good
their escape by the time the police
arrived on the scene.

The Kind of a Man (.'ol. Plumer Ik
Col. Plumer, whose name is so
often seen in connection with the
much-longed-for relief of Mafeking,
writes a correspondent, is a dapper
little man of scarcely 5 feet 5 inches
although an impression seems to
have got abroad Ihat he is tall. He
is one of the greatest dandies imaginable, but does not let the tastes
of an exquisite interfere with a
sincere devotion to his profession
or with the great love of all kinds
of sports for which he is notorious.
When stationed with his regiment
at Cape Town it is said that he
often changed his clothes six or
eight times in the course of the
day. His wife is an exceedingly
tall English blonde, with a most

Tammany Hall, in an official statement made by John F. Carroll last

MISCELLANEOUS  NOTES.
The Boer envoys still labor under
the delusion that in war the defeated party dictates terms.
The United States senate will be
the scene of the first performance of
a new version of the play "Why
Smith Left Home," with W. A.
Clark of Montana  as a star player.
The Canadians in South Africa
are so highly prized that Lord Roberts is beginning to sprinkle them
like salt in the other regiments.—
Toronto Star.
Aguinaldo has entered the same
category as Lost Charlie Ross, the
man who struck Billy Patterson,
Tascott, the murderer, Andree, the
aeronaut, and olheioincn who enhanced their fame by   disappearing.
The Cubans are having a practical demonstration of tbe difference
between the American and Spanish
method of treating a rascal who
has been found out. The trouble
with the Spanish oiliciais was that
corruption was so universal among
them that none of them dared find
out anybody else.
Majuba Hill may appear like no
obstacle at all to Buller after the
heights which he had to climb in
his march to the relief of Ladysmith.
There are points in the country over
which General Buller has advanced
these last few days which are as
defensible ns Majuba Hill.—Toronto Telegram.
French and the Advance Guard Reported at Johannesburg
Capetown, May 28.—It is rumored here that General French
has entered Johannesburg.

Senekal May 27.—Gen. Rundle,
with artillery, the Yeomanry and
tbe Wilts, Middlesex and Leicester
regiments, under Major Dalbiac,
has occupied Senekal, whence the
Boers were driven by a few shells.
A field cornet and a number of other
Boers were killed. The British casualties numbered 11.
The Boers are believed to be
concentrating near Bethlehem.
Will Boera t Ittlil at the Klip!
London, May 28.—2:13 p. m.—
Although the federals are said to be
preparing for strong resistance at
the Klip river, those who have
most closely followed the progress
of the war since the British and
Boer armies came in touch at
Brandfort are very sceptical as to
the burghers seriously disputing
Lord Roberts' advance even   there.
May Capture Boer (iuiiM.
If no stand is made at Klip river,
the safety of the Boer guns at
Laing's Nek will be seriously imperiled, for there will be nothing
to prevent Lord Roberts from seizing the Johannesburg-Laings Nek
railroad. Indeed, it is already reported that the railroad has been
cut and it is quite possible that the
first official news will record the occupation of Heidelberg.
Cavalry Will Kuan Ahead.
•
Lord Roberts may be forced to
ball at the Vaal river to repair the
bridge and get bis guns and transport across, but the mounted m e.i
will not be delayed, and it is said in
high quarters that the speedy announcement ot the arrival of the
British cavalry at Johannesburg
will not surprise the war ollice.
Loaaea in Siege of Mafeking.

were killed, wounded or missing,
and 190 men out ot 975 were
killed, wounded or missing.
The   Kecupturc   of llellbron  Iloublcd
New Vork.May 28.—I. N. Ford's
last London cable to the Tribune
upon the South African war situation says:
"No particulars of the crossing
of the Vaal near Parys are yet
forthcoming other than those contained in  General   Roberts'   ollicial
message.
"The reported recapture of Ileil-
bron by the Boera is not yet confirmed and there is a tendency to
doubt the accuracy of the Pretoria
telegram. If, however, the Boers
really occupied the place, General
Roberts should not have much difficulty in turning them oul again.
"Although the federal troops
have been retreating so rapidly
from their positions in the Free
State, it is considered highly probable that they will make at least
one big effort to maintain their possession of the Rand.
"No news from Natal has been
received this morning."
Boer Suppllcaaiul llecrulta
London, May 28.—Advices received here assert that supplies continue to go to the Boers from Lorenzo Marques, and that foreign
recruits for the Boer army proceed
from the same point.

night on his way to Fredericton, N.
B., where he delivers-the alumni
oration at the university of New
Brunswick this evening. In an interview the ex-finance minister declared tbere was no need of Hon.

1IIMM.    ON   TIIK   L1KOKAI .
Compressor   ior   iii<- silver Cup  The
lliiili nail Badly Needed.
R, P. Pettipiece, editor of the
Ferguson Eagle, which is published
in the centre of the Lardeau mining district, is in Rossland to meet
his family, who are coming from
Idaho, where they have been spending tbe winter. He tells of the
outlook for an active summer there,
saying:
"The Silver Cup is putting in a
compressor, tbe first in the Lardeau, to be used in driving a 1300
foot tunnel on the Sunshine to tap
the main workings of the Silver
Cup. This will give a depth of
800 feel and will employ   40   men.
"The Nettie Lhas tapped the ledge
with a tunnel and is putting on
more men to drift and stope ore.
On the north fork of the Lardeau
river the Scottish-Canadian, the
Canadian-Lardeau, the Monitor,
owned by A. E. We'sh, of London,
Ont, are all putting on   more   men.
"But the future of that district
depends on the completion of the
railroad fron Duncan to Trout
lake, for the Nettie L is the only
mine trying to ship this summer
and the Silver Cup only ships in
winter. Only strong companies
can afford to operate under such
conditions, for it will cost the Silver Cup St0,000 to haul in its com-,
pressor. Tbe C. P. K. oiliciais say
they will complete the road as soon
as we get a  stable government in
British Columbia. The line i.s already graded from Kaslo to Duncan
and it only needs the track and
ballasting on that section and the
building ol the other 28 miles to
Trout lake to complete it. We
shall do our part towards a stable
government, for Taylor will surely
be elected over Alex McRae, the
Martinite." 1

The action of the Silverton Miners'
Union in endorsim; tho caudiduturo of
R. F. Green, in   the present  election,
reflects credit upon them as a body of
intelligent     men.      It    shows   their
opponents   that they are not to be led
astrav   by   a h t  of cheap  promises;
and that they are not tin. kind of men
to throw a man down after using him.
The object   of their enemies are thus
defeated, and instead of being able   to
split   the   miners      vote   'and     thus
d'ifeat      them,       they     have     only
succeeded in making the  miners show
a more solid front than before.     It  is
only  thus   that  organized   labor   can
hope   to  mantain  itself in the face of
the    unscrupulous   actions   of   their
opponents.

The Martin candidate was a beaten
man before ever he was nominated
and his being in the field at all is only
a trick to beat Green and give the
mine-owners' man a chance to slip in.
The fight lies between Keen and Green
and every workingman should hear
this fact in mind and not let himself
bo tricked into voting for a third man
who has no chance. By thus wasting
his vote he mny perhaps be the means
of electing Keen and defeating thp
friend of the people, R. F. Green.

The majority of laboring men it the
Slocan have united upon a candidate
whom they will support at the ensuing
election. That candidate is Robert
F. Green who on more than one
occasion has proven himself a Man in
every sense of the word. Now let
them all get together and put their
shoulders to the wheel and see that
their man is elected by a big majority.
The bigger the majority the better for
the cause. Let them be united, sink
all petty jealousies, party predjudices
and p.-r.oiinl grudges and make one
fight for their common interests. It
is only by being united that they can
accomplish anything and any or e of
them who tries to sneak out of his
personal responsibility in this matter
is a traitor to the cause of labor and
will stand a lot of watching hy his
fellow working men.

If lahoring men will ask themselves
the following questions, they will see
how hollow are Jos. Martin's protestations of friendship for the cause of la-
hor. Why did Martin ask Turner and
Dunsmuir, with their known attitude
on the labor questions, to join his cabinet'. Why did he go to Winnipeg
last winter, at thb very time the lockout was on in the Slocan, to work a-
gainst the election of the only labor
candidate ever nominated for the Dominion House in the Westl How was
it that he, who had fought the C P. R.
in Manitoba, came to this province as
a C. P. R. attorney? Why are the
workingmen of Vancouver, Martin's
own constituency, running candidates
of their own in opposition to him; if
the laboringmen that know him best
cannot trust him, can we? Why is
Ralph Smith, President of the Dominion Trade and Labor Congress, one
whose fealty to the labor cause is unquestioned, opposed to Martin, whom
he knows well'l Why does Martin endeavour to split the labor vote in the
Slocan to allow the election of a mine
owners'candidal!?
