Midway was caotured .yesterday :by
the citizens, of, -Greenwood, i They
pouredlnto the little .town, took possession of the hotels, filled. the ••grand
stands.and generally acted as. if they
had an'interest:in that.beautif.nl stretch
of laudthat is so pleasant to the men
living Jn : the bustling, inou n tain-girt
city. The thousand Green wood ite*
who were guests of Midway for the
day got there in ever)- imaginable conveyance excepting an automobile and
a railway coach. The track not being
properly ballasted, the C. P. R. officials
refused to run lhe risk of carrying the
large number of people who would nat-
tually take this convenient means of
traveling. A few, .very few. had a tit-
pass over the Columbia & Western and
used it. 'Every horse iu Greenwood
and every form of vehicle from a top
'buggy to a heavy lumber wagon wa>
pressed into service. There were
enough riders and rough riders at thai,
to duplicate Strathcona's Horse. Hard
land unbending wagons were niade''u_.
soft as possible by the use of ruys and
were crowded with pleasure seekeis.
There was a, bicycle corps nearly one
hundred s.rong.
lint Greenwood was not alone responsible for the crowd at Midway.
The mining camp.-, and rural settlements were well represented and towns
like Phoenix. Eholtand.Grand Fork*
sent their quota Nor should the pie-
luresqiie"Curlew creek Iii<"lian„. lie forgotten. The representative* of the
noble Red men were there with tlieir
squaws and their burse which .showed
better care and breeding than themselves. Even " John Chinaman had
riyged'iip s.diue kind of conveyance
and was in" the celebration; It was a
good natured cosmopolitan crowd
representing many of the races, lhat
make up the human family. Happily
there is plenty of room and fresh air
iu Midway and tbe broad valley of the
Kettle river was by no means,crowded,
although it had for the time being
more people than ever before.
It was evident that the stirring time.-,
had a material iiilluence ou the pleasure seekers, and scarcely one could be
seen-who did not exhibit some mark of
his loyalty to Her Gracious Majesty.
Flags, bunting and buttons were
freely used and most of the conveyances were gaily decorated. The most
uniqueUirnout .v as certainly furnished
by the Saint's- Rest" hT'GFeeiiwobd.
The big wagon was about hidden iu
its decoration of Hags. All the members of the part)', from Bridget to
Pontius Pilate, were" covered with red.
White and blue, and even " Sing," the
cook, who came along as a mascot, and
incidentally to look after the boys, was
ornamented with miniature Union
Jacks.' Taken all in all, it was a. jolly
crowd., They went to have <a i good
time and they succeeded.
.Although the growth of Midway }ias
been slow, changes could be noted in
the committee. The genial secretary,
W* B. Rickards, who ofliciated at pre-'
vioiis celebrations, was at his post,
but there were some new faces noticed
among: the committee: The sports
were those of former years and of
nearly every Queen's Birthday,celebration. Horse racing aud bicycle racing
were.the principal features. A summary of the events is given bchnv :

He Tells How   Besieeed  Mafeking was Re-
'     lleved.
Lonhon, May 24.—The war office
issues a dispatch from Lord Roberts,
under date of Houiugs Spruit, May 22,
announcing the receipt "by him of the
following message from Major General Baden-Powell :   '
" Mavkking, Mav 17.—I am happy
to inform you that Mafeking was successfully relieved today.
"The northern and southern columns
joined hands on May 15th aud attacked
the eneniy yesterday, and.after a small
engagement entirely defeated them
with loss. The British casualties were
3 killed and 22 wounded.
"The relieving force marched into
Mafeking at nine this morning and
the relief- and defense force combined
moved out- and attacked the" enemy's
head laager. We shelled them out and
nearly captured Siiymaa and one gun,
a Hag and a large amount of animuui
tion, stores, etc. Five dead and fifteen
wounded Boers were found. The eneniy appears to be retreating in all directions, except one commando, which
is lying low, possibly to cover the retreat of the remainder.
•"Captain Maclaren and Corporal
Murray were found in the Boer hospital. They are doing well. The town
people and the garrison of Mafeking
are heartily grateful for their relief."
, Lord Roberts' dispatch further
-.ays :
" Ian'; Hamilton, reached ■ Heilbron
this morning after a series of engagements with a Boer force under Dewet,
who is retiring before him. Broad-
wood has captured fifteen Boer wagons.
There have been 75 casualties in Hamilton'., forces to yesterday evening.
We marched here this morning."
I.uMiOx. May 24.—The war ofliee
this evening published the following
from Lord Roberts, dated May 23rd
from the. south bank of the Rhenoster
"We found on arrival here this
morning that the enemy had tied during the night. They had occupied a
strong position ou the north bank of
the river, which had been carefully
entrenched, but they did uot think it
advisable to defend it when they heard
that Ian Hamilton's force was at Heilbron and our caviilry, which had
crossed the Rhenoster some miles down
the stream, were threatening their
right and rear. The bridge over the
Rhenoster river aud culverts and some
miles of railway were destroyed.
"Ian .-Hamilton's force drove the
Boers under Dewet before them from
Lindley to Heilbron. The passage of
the Rhenoster.was stoutly disputed
aud our—loss -might—have-been-heavy-
but for a well concerted plan which
brought Smith-Dorien's brigade on
the enemy's flanks just at the right
"The officer in command at BoshofF
reports that upwards of 350 Free Staters have surrendered during the past
few days, and that they have given up
360 riiles, one hundred horses and a
large amount of ammunition.
"Kelly-Kenny reports that .three
companies of yoemanry, who were sent
to the head of the line to clear the
country between Bloemfontein and
Boshof, have returned to Bloemfontein,
haveng performed the duty exceedingly well."
Leyds and Kruger Quarrel.
London, May 25.—Dr. Leyds has
quarreled jwith President Kruger because the latter demands an accounting for half a million .pounds.
A dispatch from Lorenzo Marquez
states that popular feeling is setting
in hurriedly against Krugcraud Steyn.
Tolstoi Ejyjelled.
ST. P'.tkks-ii.kci, Mav 25. — The
Greek church has excommunicated

Big Audience.
Biggest Public Meeting in the Boundary—Speeches by Mackintosh,
Curtis and Others.
D Without doubt the biggest and best
and most enthusiastic political'meeting
ever held in this portion of the Boundary country was that of Wednesday
evening, when for the first time in
this campaign the electors saw and
heard.the two candidates, Hon. C. H,
Mackintosh and Hon. Smith Curtis,
together. At the Alhambra there was
not even standing room, - and when
crowds of men will stand from eight
o'clock in the evening until long after
midnight enthusiastically cheering
the speakers and listening to the discussion of politics, it is a sure'sign
that the meeting was worth being at.
Acting Mayor Sutherland occupied
the chair. Qn the platform were Hon.
Mr. Mackintosh, Mayor Goodcve of
Rossland, Mr. JSllisof Rossland, Hon.
Smith Curtis, and Messrs. James Kerr,
R. E. Gosnell, Duncan Ross, J. P.
Myers Gray, and R. B. Kerr of Phoenix and others.-.' The ball was started
rolling bythe chairman bespeaking for
all the speakers of the evening a fair
and attentive hearing, and then Mr.
Mackintosh came forward amid cheers
from'all parts of the theatre, aud made,
his opening speech. He was followed
for one hour by Hon. Smith Curtis, to
whom Mr. Mackintosh again replied,
aud Mayor Goodeve closed the meeting
in a rattling campaign speech that
made the goverumeht supporters,
sqhirm and evoked loud and repeated,
cheers from the vast' audience as point
after-pbint-was Th*aiTe-__irb'-t3i*iv:e'ii'ird,fti*g'.""
Owing to pressure upon the space today it is not proposed to attempt to ■
give a report of the speeches, but some
Of the points made were so good that
tliey cannot be overlooked! First and
foremost declared Mr. Mackintosh, in
no uncertain language, il i.s absolutely
neceh-ary I" get rid ,1 :!ii- Vai.tugov-
.eruniout, lliv wo'--.l government that
Oriti -:h Coin.niii.i:ever had. Get rid of
that gowrunieui :.-.i|!," 'i.ly as possible.
This was ilu- nr-.t ,i at plank in his
platform, a plank :Li m which Liberals
and .Consiirvatives could stand 'and -
wore ^lauding itt.i_.t_ '.. I, I ihere be no
uii'vrl.iiin.-. abon. .uo.
Mr. Mackintosh charged that Joseph
Martin is the man that is responsible
for the defeat of the redistribution bill
which would have given a member to
the Boundary, and he proved'-, his
charge up to the hilt and gave his
pledge that at the earliest opportunity
after his election he would take steps
to see-that the Boundary was given the-
represeucation to which it is entitled.
He showed that if this district was
fairly.treated and givexi representation
on the same basis as some of the other
ridings in the province, it would be entitled to no less than six members,
whereas by reason of Mr. Martin's conduct it has now no member at all.
And Mr. Mackintosh declared that
when the time catue that Boundary
was given the representation it deserves, he would hand over the seat
which the people would let him have iu
trust for them, and would hand it over
unsullied and free from stain or blemish.    He will.
To the charge against him that he
had succeeded in life and therefore
ought not to want to go to the legislature, Mr. Mackintosh declared in finely rounded sentences that in Canada,
it was no offence for any man to start
as he did, at the bottom of the ladder
and work his way up and he was proud
that he had succeeded and proud that
after a public life of twenty-live years,
uo man in the world could point out a
single instance where he had betrayed
the confidence his fellow men had
placed in him, or where he had done
any man a wrong, or where he had
done anything of any kind that was
dishonorable. (Cheers.) It was the
glory of any Canadian in his country,
the richest and poorest stood on the
same platform and worked hand in
hand, each helping the other in the
common cause. He had not been desirous of returning to public life but
felt that it is the grave crisis brought
about by the selection of Joseph Martin as Premier. It was his duty to do
everything   he   possibly could   to   re-
j store responsible and safe "-overrun en

Dun-can Ross _ Editor.  SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1900,  SOMEWHAT CONGRATULATORY.  It is only meet that in the mining,  commercial, financial and smelting  center of Boundary district, the people  should be alive to the importance of  the city and their responsibility in  maintaining its prestige. When the  news of the relief of Mafeking came  in Friday, the acting mayor of Greenwood ordered the fire bells to be rung.  He immediately cabled congratulations  on behalf of the citizens of Greenwood to Colonel Baden-Powell, the defender of Mafeking and the hero of the  war. The procession was a splendid  tribute to the importance of the city  and the loyalty of the subjects in this  part of Her Majesty's Empire. - The  speeches were filled with lofty  sentiments and the speakers did  justice to the memorable occasion. It was also eminently  proper that after the exhibition of a  proper amount of enthusiasm, the  citizens should think of their duty  towards the sufferers in their own  land, and that steps should have been  taken then and there to assist those.  who lost their all in the Ottawa and  Sandon fires. Those who have the interests of the city at heart were also  gratified to find that the municipal  authorities had not overlooked the  practical side of the city's business,  and that steps were taken to so arrange  the affairs of the city so that costly  damage suits could be settled and  probabably litigation avoided.  It is not often that a city possessed  of so many natural advantages as  Greenwood should have the additional  blessing of wise and progressive government. Let us congratulate each  other on the exuberance of our loyalty,  our practical charity and above all on  ���the wisdom of our municipal fathers.  THE LABOR VOTE.  The endorsation of Smith Curtis and  Joe Martin by the Trades and Labor  council-may be-good-politic-i-but is bad  unionism.   There is no special providence or special rules protecting the  interests    of    labor    unions.     Their  strength must lie in the exercise of  good  judgment and   common sense.  Politicians   may   be gratified tp find  that the labor unions of the Kootenays  will rush to endorse Joe Martin, while  labor unions of the coast, under the  leadership   of Ralph  Smith, execrate  the man  who turned traitor to their  interests and who sold .himself to the  Dunsmuir interests in order to gratify  his personal prejudices.   Labor unions  the    Kootenay     hug     the     delusion  that    Joe   Martin    is   their   friend,  while    labor    unions   on    the    coast  found him joining the enemies of labor  to defeat the only practical measure  "rintroduced^in^- the-^House --looking-  towards the exclusion of Chinese and  Japanese   from    the   mines.     Labor  Unions of   Kootenay fall   down   and  worship    Joe    Martin    while    Labor  Unions   of   the   Coast   through   their  leader   Ralph   Smith,  state   that   Joe  Martin   is "an egotistical,   bombastic  demogogue, capable of any sacrifice of  pledges and principles, ready to violate  all obligations of honor or secrecy, a  melodramic,-political buffoon."  If the creation of divisions within  the ranks is any criterion then the  worst enemy of labor is labor. Trades  and Labor Councils may endorse whatsoever candidates they will, but a  man's politics are not regulated by the  dictation of any body. They cannot  force him to take any position against  his convictions and better judgment.  But Joe's mendacity was particularly  brilliant in dealing with his selection  of cabinet ministers. On the coast he  apologized for the introduction of the  Cory Ryders and the George Washington Beebes into provincial politics by  maintaining that he could not have in  his cabinet any member of the house  who had insulted the governor by leaving the house while he delivered the  prorogation speech." That much was  certainly due the man who had called  upon him to form a'ministry, and people appreciated those finer feelings  which Martin undoubtedly possessed  when he would rather struggle with a  cabinet of mediocres than have any  man who insulted his- friend Mclnnes.  There is, however, something in the  Kootenay air which has a baneful  effect on Joseph Martin. It is not long  since Joe lose a seat in the cabinet  through certain indiscretions while in  the Kootenays. But that little, experience did not teach him discretion,  and all his Kootenay speeches were a  contradiction of those delivered at the  Coast. He told the people of Kaslo,  and the people of Greenwood, and  those of Revelstoke, that he had asked  both Dunsmuir and Turner to join his  cabinet, although both these gentle  men were ring-leaders in the prearranged plan to insult the lieutenant-  governor.  Martin told the people of the Coast  that he was the leader of the great  Liberal party fighting thc Conservatives under Charles Wilson. By the  time he reached Greenwood neither the  Liberals nor their leader were any  good. He never asked for Sir Wilfrid  Laurier's support; he didn't want it;  it would do him more harm than good ;  they were creatures of the C. P. R.  anyway, and they had made so many  mistakes he was not anxious to assume  any responsibility.  Martin's tone revealed his true character. He is a plunger without a conscience. He is ready to say anything,  advocate anything, contradict, endorse  or repudiate anything that he thinks  will win him votes.  A PLAIN STATEMENT.  MENDACIOUS MARTIN.  The [one thing which stood out  prominently in Martin's recent campaign, was his bold mendacity. The  only variation he offered in his speech  was to twist it wherever a change of  views suited his audience. He started  out by informing the electors that he  was going to build a railway from the  Coast to Kootenay immediately upon  his return to power. By the time he  reached Revelstoke he was not quite so  sure about the railway and his audience  was informed that he would investigate the practicability of the scheme  before committing the province to an  expenditure of fifteen-odd millions of  dollars. But he had recovered from  this spasm of wisdom before Boundary  creek was reached, and the people of  Greenwood were told that the election  of Martin meant the immediate construction of a railway.  Hon. C. H. Mackintosh has prepared  and issued a plain statement in reference to his position and that of his  opponents on the labor question. The  statement is so concise and to the  point that it is well worthy of reproduction. He says in reference to Martin and labor that' " The Hon. Joseph  Martin is premier of British Columbia.  He is appealing to the people to support him. Some of the working men  of Rossland think he is all right. He  impresses them by his public attitude  to corporations. What is his real attitude to corporations? He makes  great capital out of his opposition to  .the C. P. R. in Manitoba. The C. P.  R. paid him a retaining ree and he  left the fight in Manitoba. He quit  the people's cause in Manitoba to work  for a corporation in British Columbia,  the same corporation he fought there.  This, his friends say, shows what a  smart man he is.   It does.  "Why has he failed to secure the  workingman's support in Nanaimo and  on the coast generally?    He admits on  the platform that he made an alliance  with*"James"Dunsmuir to-defeat-the  Semlin government.   They both want  ed the Semlin   government   defeated  and made a deal to that end.   We know  why Martin wanted that government  defeated, but why did Dunsmuir want  it  defeated?   The Turner party was  ready   to  swallow  that  government,  program   and all.   Why did that not  suit Dunsmuir!   Because, as soon as  the Coal Mines Regulations Amendment act passed its third reading, his  mines would be emptied of Chinamen.  He must destroy the government first.  He found   an   instrument   in   Joseph  Martin.   Martin sold   the interest of  labor and of the province, not for gold,  but to gratify a personal spite.   That  is why the workingmen of Nanaimo  and the coast will have nothing to do  with him.    Are they right?   Is that  treachery to be forgiven?   Even now  there is nothing in his platform about  keeping Chinese out of  coal  mines.  He is fighting the C. P. R. to the same  finish as before, not the Chinese.   He  is trying to use the labor vote to boom  his own stock.    Will he succeed?   He  will not have independent labor candidates to co-operate with him in carrying out his platform.   Candidates must  be Martinites first.   He would fight a  labor candidate as quick as any other."  namely: Whether politicians are to be  encouraged in playing battledore and  shuttlecock with interests which; properly directed and administered, would  place British Columbia in the foremost ranks of money producing provinces. Furthermore, a carefully devised policy establishing our assets  and liabilities, is of first importance,  as we would then be in a position to  prove to the outside world that the  country was a safe investment.  Do you attribute all the depression  recently observed to the fact that an  eight hour law was enacted?  By no means, and that is precisely  where many electors may unwittingly  vote for my opponent, absolutely mis  led by misrepresentation. Why, niariy  countries have eight hour laws; many  parliamentary bodies have also decided  the hours when children of certain ages  are allowed to work in factories, and I  think it a very unwise policy to promote ill-feeling between mine owners  and miners simply for purposes of embittering either side and thus secure  votes. The man who has tlrje interests  of the people at heart will, neyer do  this, and he who does is a poor adviser  as well as an unpatriotic citizen. In  Rossland the mine owners and miners  arrived at an understanding; in fact  the eight hour law has been virtually  removed from the * arena of politics,  domestic or otherwise, and I am confident that every reasonable miner will  be only too glad to assist in preventing  further misunderstandings on a basis  of mutual agreement. I did not hesitate to advocate this weeks before I  dreamed of being a candidate in the  Rossland Riding. Besides, it must be  remembered that I have no connection  whatever, direct or indirect, with the  British-American Corporation, the Le  Roi company, or any mines in the  Rossland district.  "The gravest blow that could be administered to my business is a dispute  between mine owners and miners. All  my energies would naturally be directed towards maintaining harmony���and  that will be my policy irrespective of  the actions of some who are interested  in keeping up and fomenting agitation."  "You say that the eight hour law  was not responsible for the depression  ���what other factor do you attribute it  to?"  Mr. Mackintosh���Look at the share  quotati ons prevailing in Great Britain,  Australia and South Africa and other  stocks dropped in some cases fifty per  cent, consequent upon war troubles; in  the next place the sudden closing of  active output in connection with the  War Eagle did much to create unrest  and to weaken public confidence.  He is and always has been straight  on the eight-hour law. Early In the  game he wrote that the ' law being bn  the statute book there was no alterlia*-  tive but to enforce it. What did he  mean ? Did he mean that the government was legally bound to ��� enforce it ?  That's what Martin says he meant.  Probably that is the only kind of compulsion Martin iecognizes himself.  What Mackintosh meant was that a  government who passed a law and  would not enforce it were cowards or  worse. They had no alternative, as  honest men but to enforce the law, aud  give it a fair trial. A campaign of  calumny and misrepresentation has  been entered into against. Mackintosh  about his attitude to labor. Words he  never utteredare put into his mouth.  Statements he never made are represented as coming from his pen. Are  the workingmen of the riding going  to allow his opponents to breed prejudice or calumny and hatred upon want  of knowledge ? Is it politics with them  or labor ? Will they reject a friend to  make a bargain with a proven foe ?  NOT TO BE TRUSTED.  AGAIN CONGRATULATORY.  The Times doesn't like to gush, but  it is forced to again congratulate the  council. As representatives of the  people the members certainly did their  duty when they voted 'the munificent  sum of $25 to assist in defraying the  expenses of a concert to raise funds  for the Sandon fire sufferers. Now  that every other town in Canada, excepting Greenwood, has done its duty,  there is no longer any distress in  Sandon and consequently there is no  need for hasty action on the part of  the council. The telegraphing pf $25  or $50 or even $100 to the Mayor >of  Sandon would have been a graceful  act, but one cannot expect any catering  to sentiment in a practical businiesslike  .municipal._councU._^The_;cpuocU__haye  done their duty. Let us congratulate  them.  MACKINTOSH   AND   LABOR.  THE EIGHT HOUR LAW.  A recent number of the Family Herald, Montreal, contains an interesting  interview with Hon. C. H. Mackintosh.  His references to the Eight Hour law  are well worthy production. He said  in reply to the Herald representative's  question:  "What political issues are liKely to  be decided by the provincial elections?"  Mr. Mackintosh���One in particular.  The following statement has been  issued regarding   Hon.   Mr.   Mackintosh's attitude towards labor:    Mackintosh is a Conservative.   But he is  running on the ticket of good government against Martinism.   Martin's attitude towards labor  you know.   He  will deal with labor as he dealt with  Dunsmuir, to advance his own ends.  He combines opposite elements, and  has a different explanation for both of  them.   He cracks the whip, and tries to  make the labor vote jump.   He must  control the vote or he has no use for it.  It is buy or sell with him when he gets  control.   What is  Mackintosh's  attitude?   Since  when  did   the  people's  Charlie of Ottawa change his  coat?  When he became a company promoter?  Not a bit of it.   He was asked long ago  if there would be labor trouble in British  Columbia.   He  answered,   "No.'��  When asked why not, he said:   "Treat  the   workingman fairly and   he will  treat his employee fairly."   "But what  is treating him fairly?"    "Giving him  good wages for good work and recognizing his right to combine to advance  his interests, as doctors, lawyers and  others do."   He based, his confidence  in industrial peace upon his belief in  the  reasonableness   of   workingmen.  He   had represented workingmen for  years, and had learned to know them.  The agitating element of mine owners  never liked Mackintosh.   They tried to  down him, but in vain. They repudiate  him now, lock, stock and barrel.   But  like the Conservative party, he is getting on very nicely without them.  Mr. Martin, in addressing the public  meeting in Greenwood, intimated that  Ralph Smith, president of the , Dominion Trades and Labor council,  would support him. Mr, Smith addressed a large meeting' at Nelson on  Monday. He severely scored Mr.  Martin for his treachery to the- labor  interests. The following excerpt from  his speech, as reported in the Nelson  Tribuen, will be read with interest:  " Coming back to the provincial  situation, Mr. Smith said that in 1899  the wise men of the Semlin government began to quarrel, and it was well  known that a house divided against  itself could not stand. Mr Martin was  asked to resign, and the premier gave  certain reasons for deciding upon this  course. With the premier's position  in the mater, Mr. Smith said he did  not agree, and in the caucus he added  that he had fought for the ex-attorney-  general. He then promised Mr. Mar-  that if he would stand upon the  grievances connected with liis dismissal he would support him.  When, however, he found that Mr.  Martin was willing to do anything,  say anything and go into any transaction to get back at the government,  Mr. Smith came to the conclusion that  he was not justified in {supporting a  man of that kind. He considered, that  a man who would not sacrifice his desire to get back at his enemies for the  common good-of the country, was not  a "safe man to follow; that the man  who was thinking best how to kill his  brother instead of how best to transact  the business of the province was not a  safe man to follow. Mr. Martin left  the government and many were no  doubt familiar with the reasons given  by the premier in his address for so  doing."       ��� - ,  MUNICIPAL IMPROVEMENT,  Have all the suggestions that have  been made for some substantial improvements this year been- pigeonholed ? It begins to look very much  like ^it. Unless our civic authorities  make up their minds pretty soon to do  something more than the regular routine business, they will hear a pretty  decided kick from the ratepayers. For  instance,uthe^sewerage proposals seem  to have.taken the early blight- Cer-^  tainly we will have no. sewers this  year, and at the present rate of progress, nor next year either. Some one  needs a wakening up.  THE BOER DELEGATES.  Let us hope that the Boer delegates  who have now arrived in the United  States will not receive any official  encouragement. In the present temper of the British people, any suggestion of interference by any foreign  power would be quickly resented, and  should the United States government  as a political move attempt to dictate  in any way to Great Britain, no one  can tell how serious the results may be  leaded  political  monstrosity.      They  cannot be separated and live."  LiTTt,_s Bobs and the Sirdar are  nothing if not punctual. They promised to relieve Mafeking on the 18th of  May, and were right on time.  THE SIMILKAMEEN.

Mr.  Cotton now denies this, and goes  further in saying' that Mr. Martin  knew when he made the statement that  it was false, as he (Mr. Cotton) had in  Mr. Martin's presence some time previously absolutely and unqualifiedly  denied that the C. P. R., or any official  of that road, was interested to the  extent of a single dollar, 'a his is just  another instance of how reckless Mr.  Martin is in his statements.

Will  Work Promising Property.,  Other News.  Camp McKinnev, May 18.���Charles  Diezt and Edward James are visiting  friends and looking after mining interests hereabouts. Mr. James is one of  Camp McKinney's pioneers and is  interested in the best properties in this  camp. Mr. Dietz waa the' former  owner of the Sailor Boy, and now  owned by the Sailor Boy Company. Mr.  Dietz has. acquired Mr. Henry Nicholson's interest in the Old England property, James and Dietz now owning it.  The new parlners think favorably of  resuming work on this rich claim.  The news published exclusively in  The Times that Mr. John Kean would  sever his connection with the Cariboo  Company tp take the general management of a'mine in Idaho, is confirmed.  Mr. Beta his assistant, or Peter Cunningham is now slated for the Cariboo  superin tendency.  The work of Dr. A. W. S. Rothermel  continues to be the talk of this camp.  The distinguished expert is elated at  the reception he is receiving on his first  visit to British Columbia. He is receiving letters here from mining com-"  panics in various parts of the Province  to make them a call before returning  to the United Stales: Rothermel's  method of discovering hidden mineral veins and tracing them is a  I distinct departure from the divining  rod or witch hazel or the' old miner's  method of trailing a vein with a compass.

On the Highland Chief, just north  of the Bell claim, the owners, Ed. Ma-  loney and George Dore, are striking  lots of free gold. When Mr. Nelson  was up there it was reported that a big  strike had been made on the Sally,  owned by Robert "Wood of Greenwood.  The tunnel, which was being run to  tap the ledge, ran into a large body of  rich ore. Mr. Nelson is interested in  the Black Diamond, Standard, Standard Fraction and Rambler Fraction,  near the Idaho. The ore is silver-lead  and value as high as $103 have been  secured.  On his way out Mr. Nelson met many  prospectors going in., He believes  there is going to be a busy, summer up  the West Fork and will spend most of  his time there.  |  LATEST NEWS OF THE MINES. 1  The London Mining- Review says:  " The Rossland and slocan syndicate,  of which Mr. G. S. Waterlow, J. P., is  is the leading "spirit, has purchased the  Snowshbe, one of the most attractive  properties in the Boundary district.  The purchase involved a cash payment  of $70,000. The Snowshoe is situated  in Greenwoon camp. It is at present  developed to a depth of 300 feet, with  levels at 70. 120 and 200 feet respectively, and some crosscutting and  drifting-. Recently a tunnel was  started on the ore. The showing on  the surface consists of three large ore  bodies, opened up during the early development of the mine by cross-  cuts7 The ore is 7 copper pyrite  with some iron pyrites. The values  run anywhere from $1 to $60 in gold,  and in copper from one to 26 per cent.  An average value of the pre at depth  is said to give 14.6 per cent, in copper,  eight ounces in silver and $10 to $15 in  gold. Development work has proceeded without interruption ever since the  Rossland and Slocan Syndicate obtained the property. The Snowshoe  was located in 1891, and was at one  time under bond to Patrick Clark, the  well known western mine operator/'  The same paper is the authority for  the statement that Anthony J. McMillan, manager for the Rossland and  Slocan Syndicate, has left tondon for  this province.  Adrian G. Hanauer, one bf Spokane's brightest brokers, in his  weekly letter on the stock market,  says: Waterloo has been an intensely  popular stock during the past week. It  opened at 4 cents, selling at the close  Saturday at 5 cents, and in apparently  big demand. I handled close to 40,000  shares the past week.  Andrew Laidlaw, who proposes  building a pyritic smelter in the  Boundary district, writes The Times  that he is now in Lead ville awaiting  the testing of the carload of ore  sent from the mines near Greenwood,  by the pyritic system. From Lead-  ville he -will go'to Denver, and then  direct through to Montreal and Quebec.  John Mack, manager of the Athelstan company, has purchased a pumping plant for the mine. The purchase  was made from Mr. Williams, the local  representative of the Jenckes Machine  company. The pump, which has a  'capacity=of=400=galions a minute, has  already been shipped.  Development of the Great Hopes  property, in Deadwood camp, has  started. Fted Oliver, of the Morrison  and Greyhound mines, in the same  camp, will manage the work. At present the ore body will be exposed by a  series of open cuts; It is proposed to  let a contract for a 100-foot shaft.  ;The West Fork country is going to  ttract the attention of a great many  fining men this year. Prospectors  re rushing in there and mining in-  estors are giving the district a great  eal of attention. J. W. Nelson, who  pent several days in the West Fork  _untry, has just returned and brings  ratifying reports from the different  tines that are being developed in the  istrict.  J Mr. Nelson with Ben Hall owns the  lundown group on Hall creek, twelve  tiles from  Beaverton.      The  group  .nsists of   the Sundown   and   three  ther claims.

Allotments In the Cemetery;  Street  Grades and Communications  Dealt With.  Routine business engaged the attention of the city fathers until 11:30 last  evening- Acting Mayor Sutherland  was in the chair, and Aldermen Galloway, Sharpe, Bannerman, Cropley  and Sullivan were in their seats. During the absence of City Clerk Taylor  City Assessor Hallett is doing his  work.  The city engineer's plan, dealing  with the allotment of one acre apiece  to the Church of England and the  Roman Catholic church for cemetery  purposes; also sites to the Odd Fellows and Free Masons, was adopted.  The following' communications were  dealt with: F. S. Barnard, with regard to the expropriation of a portion  of his property by the corporation.  Clerk was instructed to write Mr.  Barnard an explanatory letter. .W. S.  Fletcher wanted permission .to* plank  in a three-foot opening in front and  rear at windows and doors of the Alhambra theatre in order to prevent  falling of dirt. His request was referred to street committee.  The Greenwood Dramatic company  offered their services free of charge for  the aid of the Sandon sufferers. The  Alhambra Theatre company will give  the free use of ths theatre for one  night, and all the Dramatic company  ask is that the council defray the expenses of billing the city and surrounding country. A sum of $25 was granted  towards defraying. expenses of the  company.  A communication was also read from  Dr. Schon, concerning an isolation  hospital, which, in time of smallpox or  other epidemic, would be invaluable to  the city, the present building- not being complete or large enough. The  doctor thinks about $900 could be used  to advantage in making the present  hospital more like what it should be.  The matter was left to the health committee.  ' A petition signed by eleven property  owners of Greenwood asked the council to build sidewalks from the northeast corner of Government arid Dead-  wood streets to Kimberley avenue,  and along the w��st side of Kimberley.  avenue to Providence street. This  matter was left to the street committee.  The street committee was instructed  to take necessary steps to utilize the  earth on the west bank of Boundary  avenue to complete the street on east  side of Boundary creek.  It was decided to charge property  holders $5 extra for a survey to be taken  as soon as the sills had been laid, after  which the owner is to receive a certificate to that effect, and unless this is  conformed to the the responsibility is  on the builder,  A bylaw to raise by way of debentures $20,000 for street improvements  was read a third time.  vn  p/p  WAS DRIVEN AT NOON TODAY  In  the Ssur to tbe Old Ironsides Bunkers.

Dan Mann, one of the largest stockholders in the company, made the announcement in Montreal a few days  ago. It now looks as if this was going  to be a busy summer in the Boundary  Creek after all and that era of prosperity that accompanies railways smelters  and shipping mines has just set in.  MACKINTOSH  Enthusiastic Reception Given  to the Governor  BY GRAND FORK CITIZENS  Addresses a Large  Public   Meeting  There Tonteht-Will Be Here  Next Week.  Grand Forks, May 19.���[Special to  The Times.]���The enthusiastic reception accorded yesterday to Governor  Mackintosh is the absorbing topic of  conversation here. He has made hundreds of friends and has already done  much to dispel the illusions so insidiously circulated by the Martinites.  The governor discussed the issues of  the campaign at the Yale last evening.  Those present included every representative business man of the community.  Addresses were delivered by Mayor  Uoyd A. Manly, Colonel Heywood,  Charles Cummings, J. W. Mclaughlin,  C. N. Galer, T. W. Holman, James  Jarrel, R. E. Nesbit and several others.  A noteworthy feature was the declaration of Mr. Eckstein, an ardent liberal, who, while endorsing the principles of Liberalism, declared that any  Liberal worthy of the name should  co-operate at this critical juncture in  the history of the Province in giving  the quietus to Martinism and all that  it implies.  y Mr. Mackintosh visited Columbia  today, and his reception there was  equally enthusiastic with that accorded  him here. In company with Mayor  Ivloyd A. Manly, he also visited the  Grand Forks smelter. The organization of the various committees was  completed this evening.  The governor will address a public  meeting here Saturday evening.  Speaking to your correspondent today,  Mr. Mackintosh said: " I am gratified  at my. reception. During my short  stay here the assurances of working  miners and business men portend that  the cause of good government will be  triumphant at the polls on the ninth of  June."  Continuing, the governor repudiated  as a base slander the statement so industriously circulated to the effect that  he was in the pay of the C. P. R. and  of the Dunsmuirs. He was independent, of both and will remain  so At no stage had he courted or  sought their support,. The governor  added that he looked forward with  pleasure to the opportunity .which will  shortly be afforded him of stating his  views on the main issues of the campaign.."- -  In conclusion, Mr. Mackintosh declared himself as vigorously opposed  to corporate rule of any kind. He considered that his political career spoke  for itself. Mr. Mackcintosh has decided views respecting the necessity  for independent representation for the  Boundary country in the provincial  legislature.^ After.the^eiection.he;pur-  poses carrying out his statesmanlike  policy in its entirety.  Governor   Mackintosh   will   go  Greenwood about Saturday next.  to  Phobnix May 21.���[Special to The  Times.]���Amid the shrieking of steam  whistles and the cheers of assembled  miners and other citizens of Phoenix,  and with the ore bunkers gaily decorated with flags, the last piece of steel  was laid to the Old Ironsides ore bins  at noon today. Immediately after the  last spike was driven the deep basso  prof undo whistle of the Ironsides shaft  house heralded the welcome news,  quickly followed by the Knob Hill, and  in turn taken, tip by the War Eagle,  Gold Drop, Golden Crown and other  mines. The terrible ear-splitting din  was not lessened by numerous explosions of dynamite and C. P. R.  locomotive whistles. The citizens of  Phoenix -sent ten barrels of Phoenix  ���beer to the workmen immediately after  completion.  This marks a new era here and its  effect has already been felt, about fourteen lots having been sold in the three  townsites in the last two weeks.  RIOT ON STEAMER.  Seattle, May 23.���A serious riot oc  curred on the steamer Aberdeen en  route for Cape Nome. The steamer  was overloaded and a number of the  passengers insisted upon their being  landed. The steamer ran into Neah  Bay, where many of the passengers left  her. Six hundred people left for Cape  Nome by the steamer Garrone last  ' night.  Tortured a Witness.  Intense suffering was endured by  witness T. ~L. Martin of Dixie, Ky.,  before he gave this evidence: " I  coughed every night nntil my throat  was nearly raw; then I tried Dr. King's  New Discovery, which gave-me instant  relief. I have used it in my family for  four years and recommend it as the  greatest remedy for Coughs, Colds and  all Throat, Chest and Lung Troubles.

Smith Curtis in liis speech  which was -mostly '��� repetition of his  former speeches already reported, in  the most sneering way possibly referred to a mining deal in the Simil-  ka.uieen .country in which he alleged  that Mr. Mackintosh had not done the  ���st|ua re thing!.'.ai'.d in 1'is reply, Mr.  Mackintosh went, into the matter fully  and promptly, and thoroughly proved  the falseness of the slander. The  laughter from all parts of the house  developed into a roar of cheers when  Mr. Mackintosh read the notice he had  received from Mr. K. A. Brown in connection with the Sunset deal, that the  balance of the nrnieys due under the  option had been assigned. And to  whom? To Joseph Martin and Smith  Curtis. It was only a small sum of  forty thousand dollars, but it was to  go to these two yen tic-men. But  though the money was in ihe Bank of  Montreal at Rossland, it was never  paid over because neither Mr. Brown  nor his representatives or any one else  had brought in the deeds as the option  required.  Mr. Mackintosh continued : I telegraphed from San Francisco the day  the payment fell due. asking whether  or not the agreement with reference to  the deposit of the title deeds had been  kept. The answer was that the papers  were not deposited, and I then telegraphed declaring the deal off,, am!  afterwards received a letter from Mr.  Brown, stating that he coi iii mi ed my  action and released me from any  claim whatever. These are the facts  iu a nutshell.  When Hon. Smith Curtis was speaking   he   showed    the    audience    very  plainly   that, there   was one   man for  whom he had the  utmost respect and  of whom he had.the  greatest fear, ami  thai   muu   was   Mayor  Goodeve,   and  when   the ���mayor  was called   upon   to  speak the audience   found  out the reason, for if ever a  public man   received  a scoring on the. platform  and  a oasti-  g'atioii it was Smith Curtis on Wednesday evenijig.    For fully a:i hour and a  half Mr. Curtis sat under the lash, not  quietly  at all,   however, for  time and  time again   he   attempted  to turn the  torrent, but Mayor Goodeve was speak  ing by the book ank had his documents  right there to prove his ease.    He challenged Mr. Curtis time and time again  to deny his statements if he dared, but  Mr. Curtis did not deny.    He  tried to  evade   and   that    was   where    Mayor  Goodeve had him.    Not being a lawyer,  like   Mr," 'Curtis,' Mayor  Goodeve   declared,   his   inability    to   quibble   and  evade! and .when he heard a man make  a   statement,  or   when   lie   read plain  English  he took the, natural   meaning  of it and as an   honest man did  not try  to find four or five different interpretations.'   Every statement that either he  or Mr. Mackintosh   had  made   during  the campaign and every .statement that  he  would   make  until   tl_e  9th;day of  June would be found   to  be absolutely  correct and fair.    There was no telling  one story here and one story there, but  the same statements  all over the constituency, and the electors  as the jury  would find the verdict   in   favor of Mr.  Mackintosh and honesty.

The railway  is not much damaged between Kroon-  stad and Rhoenester. The Transvaal-  ers have grievously o-Tended the Free  Staters by destroying their splendid  bridges nor-h of Rhenoster. The British troops are in splendid position.  They are in a'crescent form with horns  thirty miles apart, with General  French's cavalry on the left within 23  miles of Va'al, and Ian Hamilton's  mounted infantry on the right within  30 miles of Vaal. Seventy miles to the  left is.Metliuen's forces advancing upon Vaal. Boer telegrams say that  30C0 British with ten . guns are near  Vreedesport which is close to  Vaal      and      near      Parys. Free  Staters -bolt like hares upon the  iirst sight of the British. Fleeing farmers take their families with them,  believing the well-circulated report  that theBritish kidnap children over  twelve years.of age. There is a complete embargo on news from Pretoria  for the past twenty-four hours, but it  is known that a vote is being taken  among the Boer lighting men - on con-  tinning the war, but it will be a fortnight be tore the result is known to the  Try usyaal government. -v  The railway, is open north  of Mafe  king and abundant supplies  are going-  iu.

Has he changed, his mind  since then, or is he simply trying to  secure-power1 through'> a'policy which  he thinks popular but -which, he does  not believe in?.  Is it not safer to follow the advice of  sensible men like Ralph Smith when  he says, "I do not care a snap about a  man's theories, if I know that yesterday the man did something contrary to  those theories. The man then must  perform the action above before I will  have any confidence in him."

Why not have the reliner.  here? Oh, that would not do, said Mr.  Curtis, because Mr. Dunsmuir, tht  friend of Mr. 'Martin had great coke-  ovens at Coinox lying idle and if the  government would build a railway  down to the coast and haul the matte  down there, Dunsmuir could find a  market for his coke and employment  for his ovens.  In 1896 Mr. Martin was asked in  writing ny the Trades aud Labor  Council of Winnipeg, if he favored  government ownership of railways and  if he favored government ownership ol  telegraphs and telephones and in answering in writing Mr. Martin declared  that he did not but thai these enterprises were best in the hands of private  corporations to which government assistance could be given iu the way of  bonuses. This was only four years  ago'uiid now Martin professes to be a  -convert. How can any one depend upon fhe opinions uf a man who changes  like that? Mr. Mackintosh made-this  point iu line style and was cheered to  .the. echo.

And he said that he would  wish to say to Mr. Curtis that if he  should at any time be iu public life for  such a period he hoped that he too  would be able to look back to those  ong- years of service to his.conntry  and sav that his record had been clean  Kriitrer Favors Surrender.  .Lorkxzo Makouk/., May 2.*).���Ac-  :ordii_g to a private letter'smuggled  through 'from--Pretoria.

What is there in Martin's  record to justify .the belief that he will  carry 'his. policy, into, effect���'_���.��� Absolutely nothing. Take' his���'. record in  Manitoba. When he got into power in  Manitoba, he announced with a llourish  of trumpets that 'the government  would complete the Red River Valley  railway, projected from Winnipeg to  the intarnational boundary line, there  to connect i\vith the American roads.  The Greenway government, of which  Martin was a member, borrowed  -51,500,000 to do this work. Shortly  afterwards, to the disgust of those  who believed in government' owner-  Uiip, and who also believed that the  government would stand by its announced policy, sold the road to the  N'oi'lhern Pacific.  In 1S% Martin was a candidate for  she representation of Winnipeg iu the  Dominion house. The members of  the Trades and Labor council, who  new Joe Martin and who also keep in  close touch with public men and public  affairs, prepared a serids of questions  for Martin to answer, the, lirst two  following :  1. Are you in favor of constructing  and operating the Hudson's Bay railway as a government road ?  2. Are you in favor of the government owning and operating the telegraph and telephone systems of  Canada ?  Martin's answers are given below :  Wni.
