CAMPAIGN OPENS.
The  first   gun   filed   in   the present
political campaign in thc Silverton district was fired lust night when in Mc
Kinnniis Hull 'lhe Hon. Mr, Smith Curtis
present Minister of  Miues,  delivered n
speech in the interests of the Government,    (living  to the short notice given
Hide   was  a   biniill   attendance   in the
ball when Mr. Curtis hegan to speak.
Those present gave Mr. Curtis an  attentive hearing mid although  he spoke for
nearly two

once drawing forth any applause from
his hearers     This   was   when  he emphasised   the   statement   that    if    the
Eight hour law were tampered with the
miners  of the whole Province would go
on Strike and ruin the husiness interests
of the country.   This the miners present,
knowing it  lo he the  truth, applauded.
The speaker took up a good part of tne
time telling what im excellent  Minister
ot Mines he was and what poor men had
always   filled   Ins   position   before    his
time.   Joe Martin and his platform  wes
praised up to the skie.4 and Mr. Green
of   Kuslo   and   John Houston of Nelson
were  condemned  as   being enemies of
labor.    Mr. Curtis    made   an earnast
plea to his  hearers to support a Martin
estnidate, bnt although heeould not or
would  not  giye the  name of the candidate  he asked  them to support any old
kind  of   a   man   who  wonld puck Ihe
Martin banner ut the present election',
Alter  promising almost even thing that
onyone   hud   ever   wished   for with the
i xceplion  of  "10 acres  and a mule for
every   worliingnian",   he  wound up his
address witli his personal opinion of the
political integrity of his leader,the Hon.
Joseph Martin.
Mi.;Curtis, although professing not lo
be a politician, has nt least the gift of
talking well and has the nerve to promise everything and anything to catch
a vote. '

Appeal to English Society Against the
Tammany Boss.
London, May 15.—The  Express
today advocates  the   ostracism   of
Richard Croker in England in retaliation for Tammany's attitude on the
Boer war.    It says:
■ "It has not escaped notice in this
country that an  American   welcome

hall, which is controlled by the   notorious boss, Richard Croker.
"The records of Tammany are already black enough, without the addition of this   new   infamy.      But i
what makes the action of Tammam
"The above objects are intended
to be accomplished, among other
ways, by promoting and encouraging the general education of the
Chinese people in tbe principles of
British  constitutional   government,
in the science of medicine, and the

sciences and arts generally, and
otherwise with a view to insuring
the adoption of the leading improvements, industrial and otherwise,
which have been and are being advantageously adopted by the English speaking people of the earth
so as in every lawful way bring
about the amelioration of the Chinese people, and to secure lor them
the advantages ot a freer diffusion

London, May 16.—The most important development in today's war
news is the statement cabled from
Capetown, announcing that the Boor
delegates advised the Trausvaalers
to surrender, if defeated at the Vaal.
This remarkable announcement is
vouched for on good authority, and
evidently obtains more credence in
Capetown than would a mere
rumor. •

Victoria, May 15.—The militia

100 men. One hundred and fifty
more regulars too are coming Irom
England.
John T. Elliott, who was arrested
at Nanaimo for forgery, attempted
suicide in court by swallowing a
broken glass bottle. He is a brother

Weatern Civilization.
The Chinese of the coast cities
are at last beginning to move towards the adoption of western civilization, for they have incorporated
under the laws of the province the
Chinese Empire Reform Association
of Canada. The objects of this organization are stated as follows in
the articles of incorporation:
"The purposes of the said society
shall   be   for    social    intercourse,
mutual   helpfulness,    mental    and
moral   improvement   and   rational
recreation; and for thc promotion of
/terature,   science,   and  fine arts,.
and the promotion and diffusion of
knowledge; and for promoting the
cause of temperance and  moral reform;   and   for    establishing   and
maintaining hospitals for the treatment of disease.
ernment to save the Boers from
their equally well-merited punishment. The conclusion is inevitable
that self-reliance is the only safeguard of the empire and •
"If England to herself remain but
true,
"Let the  whole  world  rise  up in
arms
"And we shall shock them."
But the nation must be always
ready, as in the old days of the
French wars. Then every village
was the scene of archery contests
and the English crossbowmen attained such skill that again and
again the proud chivalry of France
went down under a cloud of cloth-
yard shafts. The tifle has replaced
the cross; the bullet, not the arrow,
is now the deadly mes.enger of
death, but the nation trained to
arms is the nation's best defense.
The yeomen of old have given place
to armies of factory hands, but the
same spirit survives. There is no
reason why the factory-hands of the
British manufacturing towns should
not be kept in constant practice
with firearms until the mass of the
male population has learned to
shoot straight. Such skill takes
time to acquire, but the training
by which men learn to work and
act together as parts of an army
comes more quickly.
With a population thus trained,
the empire need have no fear to pit
an army of volunteers against the
conscript armies of the continent,for
one soldier who voluntarily takes
up arms at his country's need is
worth three men forced into the
ranks whether they have any heart
for fighting or not. The empire has
triumphed before in her splendid
isolation and can do so again, if the
people only keep their armor bright.
raven sharpshooters as a supernu
merary captain of the batallion staff.
The governor of Beira, during a
speech at a dinner to the yeomanry,
said:
"Friends as we have always been
of England, we never could have
realized the magnificent unity of the
Anglo-Saxon race without such an
object lesson. Realizing this, Portugal not only congratulates her
ancient ally, but rejoices with it, as
the strengthening of a friend i.s the
strengthening of ourselves."
Apparently Lord Roberts is still
waiting at Kroonstad, prep-iratory
to .making a swift movement on the
Vaal river.

While the troopers were unsaddling their horses, a deadly fire was

several of the Inniskillings. A
Score of them were also captured,
most of whom had been wounded.
Boer* Will Fight at the Vaal
London, May 12.—Lord Roberts
is now face to face with the Boer
position at Kioonstad, and despite
the reports of itsstrength.the result
of the meeting of the opposing
forces is expected to be very similar to the outcome following the
British advance on Brandfort and
the Zand river. Lord Roberts is
apparently keeping the federals
moving too quickly to give them
time for effective occupation of any
position so near him and, although
numerous kopjes in the neighborhood of Kroonstad afford strong
positions, from which a delaying
action might be fought, it is fully
anticipated by the best expeits that
the Boers will now hurry on to the
Vaal, where they will once more
attempt to stem the progress of the
Invading army, while the bulk of
the federals prepare for what will
perhaps be « decisive battle on the
ridge running east and west, southwards of Johannesburg, where open
ground to the southward offers the
defenders splendid advantages over

It is expected that the railway lo
the Zand riyer will be completed tonight. The line is almost entirely

ycnd where the British are, the

too hastily to do much damage.
The Boers are reported to be entrenching themselves around
Kroonstad, 20 miles off.
The Hoer* Near Thaba Neliu.
Eden, May 11.—The Boers retired somewhat today, but it is impossible to say where they may turn
up next, owing to their great mobility. General Grenfell succeeded
in pushing them back near Rapuis-
kop, while General Brabant pushed
forward in the direction of Brands
drift, along with General Campbell
and the sixteenth brigade. A body
of Boers has appeared at. Verona,
on the Ladybrand road.

FOR A RACE TRACK
Plan to Make Extensive Improvements
in City Park.
Rossland Record.
A movement to have a half-mile
track laid out in thc city park has
been taken up with much enthusiasm among the horsemen and it i.s
proposed by co-operation between
them and tho city to get a track
ready for the celebration of Dominion day and the Fourth of July.
The plan suggested is to have the
ground improved,as far as necessary
for park purposes, by the city, and
to have the horsemen improve the
track, fence it in and build a grand
stand. The horsemen would then
have the right to charge admission
to the track on race days, paying a
percentage of the receipts to the
city tor ground rent. The city
could also reserve the use of the
track for other occasions.
While a perfectly oval half-mile
track could not be laid out without
interfering with the general plan
for the improvement of the ground
as a park, a series of drives through
the park could be arranged so as to
form a track, if the slope of thc
ground southward is not tod* steep.
In order to determine this question,
a series of lines will have to be run
from east to west by the city engineer. The brush will have to be
cleared away, both to remove obstructions to the view of races and
to avoid danger of fire in the dry
season.
City Engineer Van Buskirk is
now making surveys for a new drive
to the cemetery and park in place
of that which has been closed by
fencing of lots. The plan i.s to start
from Columbia avenne along Georgia street to Le Roi avenue, east on
Le-Roi to Park street, north on
Park street to First avenue, east on
First avenue to View street, north
on View street to Second avenue
and then east along Second avenue

BULLER FIGHTING
Drives Boers F rom Positions on the
Biggarsberg.
London, May 14.—A special dispatch from Stone Hill Farm, Natal,
dated today, says:
"General Buller's advance commenced Thursday, when he left
Ladysmith in strength. When
within two miles of Helpmakaar,the
Boers opened a heavy artillery fire
and the British replied, while a
portion of Buller's troops worked
around the Boer flanks. The British attack was pressed home Sunday by Bethiten, who cn the right
outflanked the Boers, whose splendid defensive positions on the Biggarsberg were practically taken.
General Buller's march, subsequent
to the attack, was carried out without a hitch. The British are still
pushing on."
Huller Will  Take Dundee
London, May 14.—A dispatch received by the Associated Press from
Pietermaritzburg, Natal, timed 12:05
p. m. today, brings the first intimation of success attained by General
Buller in northern Natal. The
sender of this dispatch evidently assumes that news of the affair has
been received from the scene of
hostilities.    Ue merely says:
"General Buller's official telegram
notifying his success at Hie Biggar-
buig, received here an hour ago,
has given satisfaction. It is confidently anticipated that Dundee will
be occupied by the British today.
The residents of the northern
country are delighted, as forcing
the Biggarsburg means that they
will speedily be enabled to return to
their home."
Boer I'..-HI.hi Taken by A**ault.
At about the time this message
was received, another dispatch came
to the Associated Press,dated Stone
Hill farm, 8:20 this morning. It
says:
"After four days' march eastward
at the foot of the Biggarsburg
ridges, in the direction of Helpmakaar, which was occupied by the
federals, the second brigade on Sunday led the attack. Dundonald's
cavalry broke the Boer centre and
Bethuen's Horse advanced on their
extreme right. In the direction of
Pomeroy, a small party of burghers
occupied a ridge overlooking Helpmakaar, but they did not wait for
the assault."
Huller'* Plan or Operation*
Recent British scouting in the
direction of Dundee has shown that
the lederals were in great force in
the Biggarsburg. So, apparently,
General Buller concluded that it
was necessary to clear them from
his rear before commencing a movement in the direction of the Drak-
ensbcrg range. If that is his plan,
he has possibly divided his force,
sending one column eastward to
threaten Vryheid and I'trecht and
take Laings Nek, while a* westbound column attempts to form a
juncture with the forces of Lord
Roberls via the Ilarrismth railroad.
.Mn)' llr«i  ut Kroonstadt
Telegrams from Kroonstadt indicate that General French's cavalry
is keeping in touch with the Boeis.
But, perhaps, Lord Roberts will be
compelled to order a brief halt of
his main body in order lo allow the
troops to recuperate after their exhausting marches of the past
week.
Free Stater*   Give I |>  the Fight
All thc correspondents ngree that,
lo all intents and purposes, the Free
Staters have severed their military
alliance with the Transvaal, though
scattered bodies, they say, may
possibly hold out here and there for
some time. A.; the same time a
dispatch from Capetown, dated today, says a proclamation will be
published this week annexing the
Orange Free State.

London, May 14.—The parliamentary secretary ol the war office,

Lord Robert's plan for the relief of
Mafeking, but added significantly
that he hoped they would shortly
be accomplished.

Thaba Nchu, May 13.—The
eighth division, with its front extending 30 miles, was yesterday
moving forwaid. Generals Grenfell and Brabant followed the Boers,
reaching Newberry mills and capturing great quantities of flour and
grain. General Brabant's main
force, with Campbell's brigade of
guards and General Boies' brigade,
have cleared the country. The
Boers are splitting up and retiring
n the direction of Clocoland.
Lo««e« Heavier Than Reported
London, May 14.—3:12 p. tn.—
The war office has received the following dispatch from Lord Roberts:
"Kroonstad, May 13.—There
were more casualties in the cavalry
division on May 10 than reported
by me. I have been unable to get
an exact account of what occurred,
as the commanding officer, Captain
Elsworthy, was killed and two officers were wounded at the same
time and have been sent to the rear.
But it would appear that a party of
our men, going to a kraal on which
a white flag was flying, was suddenly attacked by a large number
of the enemy. Two oftieers, Captain Haigh, of the Sixth Dragoons,
and Lieutenant Wilkinson, of the
Australian horse, were made prisoners and twenty-one men are still
unaccounted for. Some of them
may have turned up, as the cavalry
covered a considerable distance May
10, and men reported missing have
been rejoining during the last few
days."
The above dispatch refers to
losses sustained by the Inniskillings
May 10, as detailed in the dispatches of the Associated Press.
The troopers were fired on while
unsaddling their horses, having approached the kraal unsuspiciously,
while a white flag was flying from
it.
OUTPUT GROWING DUTCH CIRL WINS
Le Roi Shipments Only Limited by The Conqueror of Kartoum Retires Be-

Some American statesman are
morbidly suspicious that some great
power will violate the Monroe doctrine. Suspicion has recently turned on Germany, yet Senator Lodge
says on the highest authority that
there was never more cordiality
thah now between the United States
and Germany. So the Statesmen
who are seeking trouble must find
another culprit.
Boom times in Seattle have
brought boom prices for everything
and wages are following suit. After
the waiters, cooks and dishwashers
have been given 20 per cent advance in wages, the long-sulTering,
patient teachers come in with their
plea.
The Le Roi mine is still working
well up to the capacity of its machinery and, although the shipments
for the week were 3466 tons, which
is the besL week's total to date, this
figure would have been exceeded,
had the Red Mountain railroad beer,
able to furnish more cars. The
mine is prepared to increase its shipments very considerably when the
new machinery arrives.
Rig Order lor Drill*.
In anticipation of the arrival of
the new 40-d ill compressor, which
is reported to have been shipped
from Sherbrooke, the Le Roi has
ordered 50 Mac machine drills from
the Mac Machine company at Trail.
This is the largest order for air drills
ever given in Canada and indicates
tne scope of the mining operations
intended to be conducted on the Le
Roi. The drills are to be furnished
in installments, all to be delivered
by the time the new compressor is
ready.
New Hoi*! Hou»e Nearly Heady
The construction of the engine
house nt the combina. nn shaft is
well advanced. The foundation
wall is finished and the roof is on,
ready for shingling. The floor
space will be 84x50 feet and will be
occupied by two first motion hoists,
which are to operate through four of
the five compartments of the shaft.
The foundations and anchor bolts
will next be set ready for the artival
cf the hoists  in the   middle of July.
A large force of machinists is em
ployed in the installation of the
pipe lines leading from the boiler
room and compressors to the site of
the various engines calculated to be
run by th's power. The timber
framing shop is in full operation
and the blacksmith shop is finished
Joale aud No. I lun Noon Ship
The ore bins at thc Josie and No.
1 mines are practically finished and
the one at the railway
will be finished    '    during
the coming week. These mines
will then be ready to ship as
soon as the railroad has enough
cars over and above what are required for the Le Roi.
Rich Ore In Joint Shalt.
The joint shaft, sinking partly on
the Le Roi and partly on the Annie
claim of the Josie group, has attained a depth of 30 feet and shows a
vein 10 feet wide. This carries
streaks of ore from which assays
running up to four and five ounces
in gold and two per cent copper
are obtained. This is the"_ westerly
extension of thc north Le Roi vein
and the workings of the Le Roi and
Josie mines being a long distance
from it, a separate shaft is necessary, thus making it a separate
mine.

Hill for Australian Federation
London, May 14.—The secretary
of state for the colonies in the
house of commons today introduced
the Australian commonwealth bill,
which he described as a great and
important step towards the organization of the British Empire.
New York, May 14.—A batch of
correspondence from the London
office of the Associated Press contains the following:
"While Lord Kitchener was engaged in suppressing the Prieska
rebellion, he ordered the destruction
of a certain farmhouse. Not seeing
any signs of his orders being carried
out, he rode over with his staff and
found an interesting situation.
In the doorway of the doomed
farmhouse stood a pretty young
Dutch girl, her hands clasped to the
door posts and her eyes flashing fire
from beneath her sunbonnet. The
Irish sergeant in charge of the party
of destruction was vainly endeavoring to pursuade her to let him pass
in, but to all his blanishments of:
'Arrah, darlint, wisha now,
acusha' etc., the maiden turned a
deaf ear, and a deadlock prevailed.
Lord Kitchener's sharp 'what's
this'put an end to thescene. Thegirl
evidently guessed that this was the
dreaded chief of staff, and her lips
trembled in spite of herself. Kitchener gazed sternly at her, standing
bravely though tearfully there, and
turned to his military secretary and
said:
" 'Put down that the commander's
orders with reference to the destruction of Rightman's farm could not
be carried out owing to unexpected
opposition.    Forward, men.'
"This is vouched for by C. A.
McNuellen, an engineer recently returned from Jepnesburg."
A Rig <'outrart lor Khaki
Hamilton, Ont., May 14.—The
iinpeii.il authorities have placed
an order for 30,000 \ khaki serge
uniforms with the Sanford Manufacturing company, for the imperial
troops' now fighting in South
Africa.
MISCELLANEOUS  NOTES.
If Roberts would only give the
Boers time to entrench, they might
make a good fight, but he pushes
them along too rapidly.
Gatacre has returned home, unnoticed, a great contrast to White.
The mobility of the Boers is being strained by the increased mo-
biliy of thi British.
Congress is trying on Porto Rico
a law restricting corporation power,
by which wind and water must be
kept out ot stock. If it works well,
it may be the basis of an anti-trust
law in the states.
Rossland is becoming noted for
giving mining men a good send off
when they transfer their abilities to
other fields. Mr. Carlyle carried
away tokens of good will and now
Mr. Haskins receives like favors.
A few years ago workingmen
were striking in the I'nited States
for enough wages to live on. Now
they are striking for enough to save
on and they usually get what they
strike for.
The Boers need not expect intervention from Europe or America.
War means more than the sending
of soldiers into the field; it means
a tumble in price of securities.—

O: the result of the present election
depends the very existence of orgatii/.ed
labor within the boundaries of this
Provinee. On one side in tbis election
are arrayed all tbe enemies of organized
lahor in every form, while on the
other side are to lie found those men
who believe labor to have a right to

the privileges that are enjoyed by
organizations   formed   by   capitalists.
Unfortunately for the cause pf
labor those who arc opposed to it
are working in harmony and present a
solid front, and if they gain control of
our Legislature laws will no doubt be
enacted that will crush organized
labor out of existence in this Province
If however labor will sink all petty
