CURTIS MEETING A FIZZLE  The  Crowd  Were  Celebrating,   an*  Were Not Anxious to Hear  Political Speeches.  VICTORIA     B.C  Owing- to the celebration in progress 'Thursday the citizens were not  strictly in the mood for political meetitfgs, ' and at 8 o'clock  the Alhambra theatre was still  empty. It was not until 9 o'clock, after  the noise and din and excitement on  the street had gradually worn itself  out, that the-Smith Curtis meeting  began. There was then a fair-sized  audience, but not nearly so large as on  previous occasions. C J. McArthur  cupied the chair, and several prominent citizens had seats on the platform.  Smith Curtis opened the meeting  and spoke for nearly an hour. His  time was largely 'devoted to personal  matters, which are not issues in the  campaign. He spoke of the Northwest  exhibition", repeating some statements  that have already'been circulated, and  dealt at some length with .the Sunset  deal. He said that he and Hon. Joseph  Martin were'friends of Mr. Brown, of  Volcanic mountain fame, and the assignment to them was only given as  security for moneys which they had  borrowed for him. In regard to the  charge that he had riot paid wages to  men in mines owned or controlled by  him, he denied it. He said that where  miners had not. been paid promptly it  was.the fault of the^treasurer of the  company and not his. Mr. Curtis made  a general reference to the press of the  Boundary district as hirelings, several  of- which had been offered to-liim,"  which he refused with scorn. During  Mr. Curtis' speech there were several  unfortunate interruptions, the result of  the day's celebration rather than any  desire to interfere with the celebration.  Had the chairman acted judiciously,  instead of attempting" to act the part  of the bully, the trouble "would have  been avoided, but his desire to be dramatic and to make political capital  was too strong for him.   ���.,'���'  Mr.-Chris Foley of Rossland was the  next speaker. He stated that he had  just returned from Denver in the United  States and admitted that he was not  famiiiar with the pqlitial issues of  the day. Nevertheless'he attempted  to cover the political history of the  province for some years back, with  what success it is easy to judge. He  was rather personal in his remarks,  calling Mr. Goodeve a "snake in' the  grass" and calling Mr. Mackintosh a  worn-out politician, : for whom the  people of Ottawa had no further use ;  -and-"further^inaking=��allusiou���to=-the  selling of " wild-cats." The way in  Which his remarks ���'. were received  demonstrated that the particular section bf the audience to whom he referred failed to appreciate that style of  argument.  Duncan Ross next spoke on behalf  of Mr. Mackintosh. He said he was  not supporting Hon. C. H. Mackintosh  as a Conservative or as Hon. C. H.  Mackintosh, but as a protest against  Martinism. At the same time he had  confidence in Mr. Mackintosh's ability  and integrity. Referring to the speech  of Hon.-Smith Curtis, he deprecated  the introduction of personalities into  the campaign, and charged the government candidate with encouraging  and following that line of policy.  Hon. Smith Curtis���I deny it.  Mr. Ross���Why, you have spoken for  an hour and dealt in nothing but  personalities. If Mr. Curtis wants to  continue in that line Mackintosh's supporters are prepared to meet him.  Mr. Ross said they all welcomed  Chris Foley in Greenwood as a man,  aud had listened with fome degree of  pleasure to his remarks, but he did not  think that the laboring man who was  a Canadian and a British subject  would take his instructions srom Denver, Colorado, from a man who admittedly was unacquainted with the  issues of the day. Mr. Ross then took  up Mr. Martin's record for the last  four years, showing that he had completely reversed his own policy no less  than five times on live different matters. Four years ago he was against  government railways, today he professes t8 be for them. Four years ago  he was dead against borrowing money,  today he was willing to borrow $20,000,-  000.   A year ago he was opposed  to  the eight-hour law, now he favors it.  In 1898 he pledged himself to give  Boundary representation, in 1900 he  defeated the redistribution bill which  provided for a me.mber for Boundary.  Mr. Ross gave proofs for each case.  He then read telegrams from H. J.  Beetneu, president of the Gatineau  railway, stating that all the men were  paid their wages, and that at no time  was Mr. C. H._Mackintosh responsible  for payments of any kind. He also  read a telegram from James Reilly,  ex-mayor of Calgary, who -was a member of.the Northwest Exhibition committee, entirely exonerating Mr. Mackintosh from any blame not shared by  all members of the committee. There  was a further telegram from Ottawa  to the effect that the accounts were all  duly audited, found correct and paid.  Hon. Smith Curtis closed the meeting, speaking for over an hour and a  half. As an election speech it was  clever, but assuming as he did that it  would be the last meeting in Greenwood of the campaign, he was particularly reckless in his statements and in  his promises. He promised if the Martin government were elected that the  government railway whistle would be  heard in Greenwood in two years; that  a copper refinery would be established  on the Coast, to which the matte of the  Boundary would be conveyed and refined for less than 3 cents a pound, as  against (,y2 and 7 cents now; that millions of ^dollars of foreign capital  would roll iu and fill up the waste,  places of the Province; that through  the proposed financial policy of the  government poll tax and all other  direct taxes would be done away with.  In fact, a more lavish display of politi-  'cal generosity was never seen on a  platform in this or any other country.  The most enthusiastic populist in the  adjoining state of Washington never  approached Mr. Smith Curtis in the  wild optimism of his two months' experience as a statesman. Mr. Curtis  concluded his speech by reference to  his position as a Liberal. He said he  stood upon his own merits aud not as  a follower of Joe Martin. If Mr. Martin's policy did not suit him he would  leave his party and, if necessary,  resign his seat. As to the policy of  the government, he took a large share  of credit to himself, and as for honesty,  and sincerity, and independence, and  innocence "of political corruption, he  was the very acme of perfection. He  was not", running 'as a'Libefarnn-this  campaign, but on the policy referred  to, but he was a good Liberal all the  same���one of the very best and purest  and most disinterested in Canada���and  in throwing bouquets to Laurier really  did reach heights of eloquence.  The meeting closed at 12 o'clock, and  after cheers and counter-cheers.Duncan  Ross announced the surrender of  Pretoria, which set the audience wild  with enthusiasm.   .  WILL STILL FIGHT.  Boer Delegate Asserts That the War Will Wot  Cease.  Boston, May 31.���M. A. Fischer, one  of the Boer delegates, when shown a  dispatch from Pretoria, said : " Even  ifrthe-wholecountry_-is__.taken__and_the  leaders imprisoned, war will cease  only for a time, and will.be renewed  again and again until we get our  liberties." He said the plan had been,  if British approached Pretoria, to  to evacuate and take^to the mountains,  and to enter upon a guerilla warfare  to last until the last man is killed. The  delegates say that they will continue  to work this country until officially  recalled.  SIDLEY NOTES.  On and after the 1st of June this  place is to have an increased mail ser  vice, making it tri-weekly.  Last Monday R. G. Sidlev, as customs officer, went to J. E. Lousks' sawmill arid seized a 12-inch belting for  being "smuggled. At the same time  S. E. Loucks, Henry Basset and Louis  Lange were arrested for stealing  various articles from the Granite and  Banner mineral claim, in Camp McKinney, and were brought before A.  Megraw and H. Nicholson, justices of  the peace, on the same day. The case  was heard that evening, and the decision was postponed until next morning, when the case was dismissed, but'  a new charge was entered of receiving  stolen goods, on which. charge Loucks  was committed for trial.

Greenwood Gets Enthusiastic  Over the Good News.  HOLD A DEMONSTRATION  Which Was Kept Up Until An Early  Hour This Morning���Big Procession Parades the Streets.  Greenwood enthused yesterday.  From 2 o'clock in the afternoon until  early this morning the town was in  possession of a shoutingly enthusiastic  and patriotic crowd, who availed themselves of every expedient to show  their joy at the capture of Johannesburg, aud later the surrender of "Pretoria. Shortly after noon The Times  announced the capture of Johannesburg. Mayor Hardy was notified, and  he declared a public half holiday. The ,  banks and all the business houses were  closed. Flags and bunting of every  description were used to decorate the  city. At 2 o'clock a procession was  formed at the city hall. The fire department turned out in full force, and they  looked splendid in their uniforms. The  hose wagon carried Colonel Ned Parker and Frank Miller, who discoursed  sweet fife-and-drum music, while in  the wagon behind came the Greenwood  band. Mayor Hardy, mounted on a  gay charger, acted as marshal. In the  procession .were horsemen and carriages of every description. The  -*Saints'*Rest" was there in; all its  glory and furnished its own music.  The procession marched through the  streets and as far down as Anaconda.  Upon returning to the Rendell corner  patriotic speeches were delivered by  Mayor Hardy and A. Ferguson. The  enthusiasm was kept up until an early  hour this morning. It pervaded the  political meeting, where it was not  appreciated by those who could not  distinguish between opposition and  boyish exuberance of,lqyalty..,-;  A royal salute was fired frpm Jubilee'  mountain. Fire-crackers were exploded in every part of the city. Every  sort of explosive w-'S turned loose and  there was a continued din' from' start  to finish.       -.y.v/y''.-'.':���* '-��� ���:������-:-���-.������ ���--   The Greenwood Light company exhausted a month's iii. idends in keeping the whistle pi the..power house g*o-  ing for some twelve hours.

In the procession Rendell & Co", had  a cage in which was imprisoned "Oom  Paul taking his last trip���to ��� St.  Helena."  Bicyclists in the most startling costumes helped to make the procession a  -success----^--=^-^=^=^=^7^=^^=^^  A runaway accident added to the excitement. A four-horse team became  unmanageable. They dashed down  Copper street and' finally became  tangled up near the Greenwood hotel,  where they were captured.  The city council were in the procession in a body.  Chief McLaren and his officers were  there in uniform. *  .Taken all in all, it was one grand,  glorious time���a credit to Greenwood  aud the loyalty of her citizens.  Demonstration at Ottawa.  Ottawa, May 31.���[Special to The  Times.]���The demonstration which  commenced j-here at midnight on receipt of the news that Pretoria had  surrendered, has been kept up at intervals ever since, and arrangements  are now in progress for a still further  and fore formal manifestation of the  people's joy over what means a successful termination of the war in  South Africa. Mayor Payment lias  issued a proclamation declaring tomorrow afternoon to be a half holiday  ynd calling upon all citizens to partake in a demonstration to celebrate  the capture of Pretoria and the success of British arms in South Africa.  This forenoon the public school cadets  walked through the streets headed by  their bugle band, and the whole city  was gay with flags and bunting.  Prince of Wales Wins the Derby.

'Duncan Ross.... Editor.  SATURDAY, JUNE'2, IWO,  MARTIN'S TREACHERY.  It is remarl-abl-i, but nevertheless  true, that Rossland is the only constituency in which organi'/.ed labor is  supporting the Martin government;  and even tho members of the various  labor unions in this district are now  beginning to discover .that their action  in endorsing Hon. Smith Curtis was  hasty ar^d-'ill-advised, aiul it is quite  possible that ore election clay labur  organizations of Rossland wiil demand  that they be not bound by <>ny action  on the part of the Trades and Labor  Council.  It is uot strange that labor men  should look with suspicion upon Hon.  Joseph Martin. There is nothing in  his Manitoba record to warrant labor  men in giving him their support and  confidence. . Since coming to this  Province every important movement  on his part tins been in thc direction of  sacrificing the interests of labor to  satisfy his own ambitions and to  gratify his thirst for vengeance.  As this is the most important election ever fought in British Columbia,  and'as it is of the utmost importance  that no body of men should be placed  in a false position by interested parties,  we propose to relate certain incidents  in Mr. Martin's British Columbia  career to show that Martin has no  more consideration for labor men than  he has for his principles or political  friends. He is ready to sacrifice everything and everybody in his own selfish  interests.  During last session Mr. Martin sold  .himself and-his avowed principles to  James Dunsmuir in order, to accomplish the defeat of the Semlin government. This coii_bi-iati6"_i had its blighting influence on different sections of  the country. Thc redistribution bill  was defeated, and Boundary district  remained " disfranchised. .. Dunsmuir  wanted his pound of flesh, and Martin  -voted against the Coal Mines' Regulation Act. The intelligent coal miners  of Nanaimo were justly indignant that  one who was elected' as the champion  of their rights should sacrifice them  in order that his thirst for vengeance  might be satisfied. Martin, with that  brazen effrontery for which he is  noted, went to Nanaimo to bluff the  1,200 intelligent miners who worked  for the New Vancouver Coal company  into believing that his sale of himself  to Dunsmuir was in the public interest.  He ran-up against the wrong, men.  The ininers of Nanaimo gave Mr.  Martin the worst reception a public  man ever received. He was hooted  and finally hustled off the platform.  Martin never forgets nor forgives, and  he lost no time in concocting a scheme  that would give him hisrevenge. He  --applied^to..the__c.o_urts^tp_secij^^anJi>  junction to restrain the New Vau-  7 couver Coal company from working its  mines. Had the courts acted upan his  advice this injunction would have been  granted and 1,200 meu thrown out of  employment for an indefinite time.  That there may be uo doubts regarding the statement that Martin was  prepared to enforce so hellish a device  to get his revenge on men whose only  crime was that the}' showed their disapproval of his action, a section of the  injunction applied for is given below :  "For an injunction to restrain defendants from mining for, raising,  getting or winning any coal, coal substances or other substances upon or  from said land under said portion of  the sea and upon or from said forshore  until the trial or other determination  of this action."  There is nothing indefinite aboul  this injunction if granted. The New  Vancouver Coal company would have  had to close ..down its mine and over  l,2oO men depending upon the company for their daily bread would have  been thrown out of employment.  Under the circumstances, it cannot  be wondered at that the miners of Nanaimo hate Joe Martin and fear to en  trust him with power. It is not surprising that they have issued au  urgeutjappeal to thc miners of Kootenay to assist them in crushing the  ' man who showed them no mercy and  who was prepared to take their means  of subsistence.  The miners of Kootena}' aud Boundary should read this appeal and then  ask themselves if it is not more consistent with the principles of unionism  to help their fellow workmen than following the dictate*, of designing politicians.    Mr.  Hawthornwaitc of Nanai  mo has placed the issue clearly before  the labor men of Kootenay Speaking  at Nelson he closed a powerful arraignment of Martin by stating that  "the working miners of Nanaime  feared thai if returned to power Joseph  Martin would gratify his lust for  vengeance ; that if he was successful  he would close the collieries of the New  Vancouver Coal company. Therefore  the working miners' of Nanaimo appealed to the miners and union men of  Nelson and Kootenay to stand by them  in such a crisis. They appealed to  the miners especially because they  were men who themselves daily faced  a common danger arid death, men  whose kinship in danger should cause  them to lend a willing ear to such an  appeal. The miners of Nanaimo appealed to the miners of Kootenay in  the hour of their present trial, to stand  by them in their fight for their homes  und their daily bread, and see to it  that by no action of theirs did Hon.  Joseph Martin or any of his political  tricksters have it in their power to  wreck their homes and their means of  livelihood."  "UNMANLY TACTICS."  Mr. Smith Curtis has for some time  posed as au honest and upright believer in fair play. At various meetings throughout the Rossland riding  he has declared that under no circumstances would he indulge in personalities, and would stand or fall by the  Martinite platform. What do we find?  At a meeting in Columbia on Friday  night last he stated that " Ex-Governor Mackintosh was the servant of the  Dunsmuirs and the C. P. R." Of  course, his opponent was not present;  but Mr. Curtis knows as well as the  electors know that Mr. Mackintosh has  over and over again publicly repudiated  this assertion; that he stated he had  never had a conference with Mr. Dunsmuir; that he did not approve of Mr.  Dunsmuir's policy of employing  Chinese or other Asiatic labor; that he  had uo connection, directly or indirectly, with the C. P. R.; that he  was a candidate in the interests of the  Kootenay country, and he would stand  or fall by that pledge. What could be  meaner than this policy of detraction?  What could more thoroughly prove  that Mr. Curtis is a beaten man? Over  and over again, in the presence of Mr.  Smith Curtis, the ex-governor has  proven by documentary evidence that  the slanders directed at him had no  foundation whatever. To refer to another subject: At Grand Forks on  Saturday night last the Martinite candidate was accompanied by one R- A.  Brown, the partner of Messrs. Martin  and Curtis in a property known as the  Sunset iu the Similkameen district.  He (Mr. Smith Curtis) introduced the  Sunset question as a factor in this  campaign; and upon written evidence  being produced, signed by Mr. Brown,  show'ng that Mr. Curtis and Mr. Martin were his partners, he (Brown) said  he did not remember signing such a  document. It so happens, however,  that the ex-governor has the original  letter in his possession, and Mr. Curtis  did not deny it when he met him face  to face. More than this : Mr. Mackin  tosh showed at several public meetings  that Mr. Smith Curtis had telephoned  from Grand Forks to the Bank of  Montreal at Rossland several days  before the payment on the Sunset fell  due-askii_g-\vhether^Qr_=not^the_money_  was in the bank, and received the  reply that so soon as the deeds were  sent to the bank the money would be  paid over. Again Mr. Mackintosh  established the fact by producing a.  letter from Mr. Brown that that person  had written to him on the 15th of  September, 1899, telling him that he  was perfectly willing that the deal  should be considered off. After all,  however, circumstances go to show  that Martinism is dying hard. Nevertheless, why should a man who aspires  to represent a large constituency like  that of Rossland riding descend to  so low a depth as to endeavor to besmirch a man who has met him in  a candid, open, honest and manly  fashion on every occasion possible?  Yet', there are some of the electors who  imagine they can vote for Mr. Smith  Curtis a without endorsing the Hon.  Joseph Martin.  could be obtained if necessary, as well  as a further intimation that the programme of . promises is not yet exhausted. The finishing touch is as  follows : " We have the opposition on  the run and indications at present are  that the government will carry at least  twenty-five seats." This, of itself, is  a proof that Mr. Yerex is a colossal  fabrication, not to use what might  reasonably be used, a much stronger  expression. Mr.- Yerex is evidently a  past master in the art of deception,  but even then there is no reason why  he should desecrate the Sabbath in the  interests of Martinism. He puts the  finishing touch to Martinism. In the  first -place, living at the coast as he  does, he must know that Martinism is  already spewed out of the mouth of all  honest electors in British Columbia,  nnd Mr. Smith Curtis, the Martinite  candidate in the Rossland.riding, must  assume responsibility for this infamous document. He (Mr. Smith Curtis)  has pledged his word that Hon. Joseph  Martin is the paragon of perfection  socially and politically. In the second  place, he has expressed himself willing to accept responsibility for the  government's actions, and those who  think can readily make up their minds  as to the character of the man now  seeking to control the destinies of this  province. Here- we find a circular,  proved by the envelopes to have been  printed a week :;g.-x, dated ahead, and  Sunday declared the day of publication so far as the electors are concerned. It is im necessary to comment  at length upon these disgraceful tactics, and th.i. only goes to proclaim,  trumpet-longued, that if Hon. Joseph  l.I.irti.i should by any chance be sustained in ollict-, the interests of British  Columbia will at all times be in  jeopardy, If any elector h-js up to  tho prose nt time been in doubt, we  thiiu- Hi is sham-1'ul effort to mislead  and misrepresent should be sufficient  to suggest the candidate he should  mark his ballot for. We do not doubt  the electors of Rossland riding will  arrive at at an enlightened as well as  a significant conclusion.  success they must be under one management and control and'entirely free  from competition. For the Provinces  to undertake to build railways and  operate them, even if they had the resources, would be suicidal, because  railways now depend on through lines  of communication. Local lines for  local traffic cannot be made to pay,  more especially in this country with  sparse population, long distances and  expensive.g rades. The Times believes,  as a theory, iu State-owned railways;  but first of all the Dominion must  acquire the C, P-.'.R. and the Grand  Trunk lines, and all other railways  built thereafter would have to be tributary to, and part of, the system.  Whether under the circumstances it  would be wise for Canada to assume  such a responsibility is a matter not  to be discussed here; but obviously a  railway run in oppssitiou to private  lines without connections and without  being part of a. general system would  be an absurd proposal. Ultimately  such a railway would either be acquired  by one of the existing corporations, as  the Red River Valley was in Manitoba,  or remain an incubus on the Province.  THE  NOMINATIONS.  SMEL-TER RATES.  A copy of _ circular letter which  was sent out to the owi:.,'-:. <>f silver-  lead mines in British Cu ,:i ...>... came  to our notice this week. It p< .ii.t<���' '��� out  the  advantages to mine-'..w.i���..-_.   ./uder  A SABBATH CIRCULAR.  There is no better method of testing  the honesty and sincerity of public  men than that furnished by their own  actions when 'driven into a corner.  This is significantly illustrated by a  circular which has been sent by mail  to hundreds of electors throughout the  Rossland riding and signed by J. A.  Yerex, chairman of the provincial government campaign. It is dated Vancouver, May 27th, 1900, the postal date  on the envelopes being 23rd and 24th  of May. It will be observed that the  27th of May was-a Sunday.and this date  was no doubt adopted to strengthen  the nefarious object the writer had in  view, which was to show that it was  only published after nomination day,  and it is on a par with the rest of the  Martinite campaign. One paragraph  says : " I desire to know all your requirements and assure you they shall  be met as soon as possible." This of  course is au   intimation  that money  MARTIN'S- CHARGES.  As time goes on the evidence of  double dealing on the part of Hon.  Joseph Martin and of sudden changes  of policy are accumulating in an extraordinary fashion. One of the most remarkable instances of duplicity was  exposed by Mr. Hawthomthwaite at  Nelson the other evening. Mr. Hawthomthwaite is secretary of the New  Vancouver Coal company, Nanaimo,  and the report of his speech as pub-  lished in the Nelson Tribune, is bristling with charges. As we know, Mr.  Martin, ever since he was dismissed  f rorn tfog ��emlin government, has been  waging war a.ga.flsj the New Vancouver Coal company g.f)4��ngeayored to  make a great deal of capital qhj: of the  fact that the late government had issued a crown grant to that company  of certain coal lauds under the sea,  Mr. Martin even went to the length  of taking action to recover these lands.  On every platform he has denounced  the late government for .the transaction. His sincerity may be judged  by the following extract from Mr.  Hawthomthwaite' speech in question :  A delegate had been sent over from  New Westminster to see if some compromise could be arranged with the  Nanaimo party. An effort had been  _made_by the Martinites_to^ring Mi.  Brown into line. He was offerecTa.  seat in the cabinet, and finally intimated that he would accept a portfolio  under two conditions. The first of  these was that Ralph Smith, the labor  leader, should also receive a portfolio  in the cabinet, and the second was  that Martin should discontinue his  action against the New Vancouver Coal  company. The delegate, George, Kennedy, an estimable man and good  Liberal, assured us in caucus in Nanaimo. that Mr. Martin had agreed to  both of these conditions, and awaited  our decision. Replying for the New  Vancouver Coal company, of which I  am an employee, I stated that the company had received nothing from the  Semlin government to which it was  not entitled, and wanted no compromise, because if it were in the power  of any politician, who temporarily  seized the reins of government in this  province, to upset their title and close  down their mines, they might just as  well know it now as in years to come.  The miners present at that caucus said  emphatically that they would not accept any favor from the common  enemy, and to the everlasting credit of  Ralph Smith, be~it said, that he also  spurned the tempting bait hung out to  catch him, and stated that he could  not support a man like Joseph Martin,  or receive benefits from him.  (Cheers.)  GOVERNMENT RAILWAYS.  Apart altogether from the merits of  the State-ownership of railways and  other public franchises, the proposal  that the Province should build and  operate lines of railway is entirely impracticable. As we pointed out in a  recent editorial, the position taken by  the Rev. Mr. Vail in his book on the  subject is the only consistent and  logical one. In order that railways  owned by the government may be a  the present system of pur  ..is;, lead  ores adopted by the Tim L' ...iiell. t* ..onus/  months ago.

This change was made possible by  the action of the Dominion government in allowing Canadian pig lead  ���which had been sent to the States to  be refined to be readmitted to Canada  free of duty,���Trail News.  How the Different Parties Stood on Nomination  '' ��� Day. ���;'  The.nominations made oil.Saturday  are now pretty generally known. They  show a bewildering mix-up. Those  papers who have published a tabulated  list of the nominees find it necessary  to use six columns to designate the  politics of the different candidates.  There are Martiuites, Provincial party,  Turnerites, Conservatives, Independent Labor and Independents.' So far  as known the government have 32candidates in the Held out of a possible 38.  The Provincial party have 15, Turner  has 17, straight Conservatives 18, Independent Labor 4 and independents  5. There nro no less than .19 Lihernls  running opposed to Martin. Many of  the Martin -candidates-are running for  appearances and have no possible  chance of election. From the Coast  word comes tlnil: not more than six  Martin eanrtk1.it>.-- will be elected, and  it is quite possible' that he and his  party will be completely wiped out.  BODWELL WILL PROBABLY SPEAK  Tlie Talented Barrister to Address a Public  Meeting in Greenwood.  E. V. Boa., ell. Q. C., of Victoria,  will probably addre..:; a public, meeting  in the city. Mr. Bodwell is one of the  recognized leaders i. f the Liberals in  this province. ��� Ile i--one of the ablest  speakers on tin; const, and should he  find time to address a meeting.here he  ubwill dotle.-..!- draw a large crowd.. Mr.  Bodwell, like all sensible Liberals, is  opposed to "Martin. At the outset of  the'campaign; he made - his' position  clear in the following words: "Mr.  Martin's political and public acts in  the past have very seriously, affected  the progress awl reputation of the  province, He has been called to ofliee  at the present juncture by a misuse of  the power-which, under our constitution, is placed in the hands of the  lieutenant-governor. I have, uo faith  in Mr. M'vrtiu as a political leader. I  am opposed to the principal planks in  the platform wliich Iw. has presented to  the people, and 1 believe that the con-  tinuauce of him and his government in  power will be a constant menace to the  public and material welfare of British  Columbia."  "ALAS!   POOR   YEREX!"  Great amusement is afforded the  electors throughout the country by the  reception of a circular signed " J. A.  Yerex^chaipman of the provincial government -campaign.'''' dated the 27th  of Mg.y (��uj!day),: tj-je. e17yejpp.es bearing the po��ta.l fjate Qi 23rcl of .May, in  which it lis stated tUiit ".carnpaigii  literature" is about to be circulated  and asking for information regat-dirig  each district. The circular concludes :  " We have the opposition ou the kun  gnd indications at present are thai the  govern njet). will carry at lea,st '_*wknty-  VXVH SEATS." It is generally conceded  that no more barefaced attempt hat-  ever been made to mislead and deceive  the electors.'.. The date of the 27th is  one day after the 'offlcial-noiuiiiatioiT  and the manifest design is apparent to  all. The circular was printed at least  a week before the 27th, as is proved by  the postal date of various envelopes.  It is conceded that this trickery' will  injure rather than aid the Martiuites,  and proves conclusively that they are  driven to subterfuge and dishonesty  in order to bolster a lost cause. Only  Joe Martin could devise a scheme of  this nature ; it is worthy of his statesmanship and illustrative of the methods  by which he hopes to control the unfortunate province upon which he has  already brought disaster.  WHiivK Premier Martin and his lieutenants are abusing Ralph Smith, as  the creatures of. the New Vancouver  Coal company, the labor leader contents himself with furnishing the  reason, It appears that Premier Joe  desired to strengthen his cabinet by  the addition of Ralph Smith. He  wanted Smith so badly that he offered  to throw out two of his incapable ministers and make radical changes in his  celebrated policy. But Ralph Smith  has no confidence in Martin, and refused to sell his influence for personal  aggrandisement. This is something  which Premier Martin cannot understand, but since he could not purchase  Smith's influence he desires to weaken  it.���Nelson Tribune.

Mclnnes and  will endeavor to defeat him in North  Nanaimo. They claim that he is responsible for Hon. J-. S. Yates running  in Nanaimo city against Ralph Smith,  labor leader. Mr. Smith held a big  meeting in Nanaimo Saturday, when  Mclnnes was formally denounced. In  the course of his speech Smith said  that George Kennedy came over from  New Westminster and asked him to  enter the Martin cabinet, saying that  if he would do so J. C. Brown .of New  Westminster would also; enter the  cabinet, and Cory S. Ryder and George  Washington Bev.be would be relegated  to inocuous desuetude. Mr. Smith  asked Mr. Kennedy to make that  proposition to a committee of fifteen  of his friends. To this Mr. Kennedy  assented and the committee were called  together to listen to the proposition.  A further condition of Smith's enter-  ng the cabinet was that suit against  the New Vancouver Coal company was  to be dropped, although Mr. Brown  had since written to Mr. Smith to say  thBt Mr, Kennedy had rather exceeded  hi�� authority in making this proposition. When -Mr. Kennedy laid his  proposition before the committee they  declined to have anything to do with it.

THE CITY COUNCIL  Holds Last of a Series  Meetings at Eholt.  of  A  SUCGESSFTL  MEETING  Favorafcly Received in All Parts  the District���Governor Left  for Rossland Today.  of  FROM SOUTH AFRICA.  _*���-  Lieutenant H. Ft. Eliott Sends an Interesting  Letter From Bloemfontein.  The Times has iust received an interesting letter from Lieutenant H. R.  Eliott,  who, at  the time of writing,  was with his regiment,  " The Buffs,"  at Bloemfo_?_.ein.�� He also sent, a copy  of The Friend, a newspaper published  by the   war correspondents with the  British army. Mr. Elliott says in part:  BmhJmfontbin, April 14.���Am sending you a paper which may amuse you  and which is rather unique in its way,  as it is really published only for the  troops here, but has about the largest  circulation   of   any  paper  in   South  Africa.   There was a Free State paper  called the T>aily Friend, and  when the  troops  catoe  jnto  ]Bio'em*fontein   the  i^iljtapy authorities decided  to start a  paper called -J-tye ip-rjeiid, \n wftich all  pppglamat. ons*   ^re   madp    known   in  yutch afl47E.ngl.sh, juj4 ip fact it is  almost the official organ Qf the troops.  Tlje paper has only been started about  a month, and when the war is over in  all probability it will cease to be published and consequently. curio hunters  are offering as much as $25 for a dom-  plete set of papers from the com mence-  ,ment.^I=wUl^send__.you���__iore___copies  when I think of it and as long as I am  here in Bloemfontein.   I think South  Africa is a rotten  country  and except  for the climate   there   is nothing  to  recommend it, as it seems tp be just a  wilderness of dust.   I have not seen a  decent farm or a mine yet, but they  say that it is a better country farther  north.     Certainly  the  Orange   Free  State is better than Cape Colony, as  there is some grass and a few trees.   I  hope the Transvaal will be an improvement in the same ratio. Bloemfontein.  for the capital of a republic, takes the  cake,   as there are only about three  buildings of any note, the best being  brick   houses   -with tin roofs.     From  what I can see South Africa cannot be  compared   to  British Columbia,   and  if it was not for the mining in certain  districts I don't see what would induce  people  to  go  out,   except  for   their  health.   I won't mind when I get back  to British Columbia, as I believe it is  as good a country as one will find anywhere.   I think that our division, after  such hard marching, and fighting last  month, and taking Cronje, will remain  here*to get thc Boers to collect around  and some other division will try and  c.it them off.   This  is an awful country for thunder-storms, and as we have  no tents we get soaked  every  time,  which is very trying, as few have any  change of  clothing.   The number of  deaths from enteric fever is awful, and  the cause is not difficult to find, as the  men on the march get so thirsty (I  never knew what thirst was before)  that they will drink any kind of water,  often from streams and pools full of  rotting carcasses of  cattle and dead  bodies of human beings, and always  like   pea   soup   made   out   of   mud.  I   think    that    everybody   has   had  enough of the war, and I think that if  we once cross the Vaal river and get  Hell Its Regular Meeting Last Night-Business  Transacted.  Mayor Hardy presided at last night's  meeting of the city council. The following communications were dealt  with: W. C. Tilsey asked the council  to enforce By-law 28, re plumbers  doing business in Greenwood without  a plumber's certificate; this matter  was left over until next meeting.  W. M. Brewer, Provincial manager for  the Engineering and Mining Journal,  wrote giving rates for advertising the  mineral resources of Greenwood; resolved that this communication be referred to the board of trade. The  Greenwood Dramatic company stated  that they were unable to give a concert in aid of the Sandon sufferers on  account of Mr. Mil lis leaving town;  clerk instructed to thank them for  offer. Percy F. Woodruff made application for situation^ as care-taker of  cemetery farm; his application referred  to cemetery committee.  The following accounts were ordered  paid: F. J, Mitchell, $40; T. B. Win-  nett, $50 75; The Greenwood Times,  $5; Greenwood Miner, $li; Smith Bros.  & Travis, $20 78; D. D.Hardy, $37 90;  Cunningham & Anderson, $1 80.  It was decided that a certified copy  of the evidence given in Rossland in  connection with suit of Rendell vsl  City of Greenwood, together with Justice Martin's decision in the case, be  placed before the council?    .  Aldermen Galloway, Sharpe and  Bannerman were appointed a special  committee to interview Mr. Bodwell ori  matters relating to Rendell vs. City,  and on question of aliens voting in  Anaconda on annexation. Mr. Bodwell  will be in the city next week.  Alderman; Sharpe gave notice that  at next meeting he would introduce a  fey-law to carry out arbitration committee's report on the Greenwood Trading company's claim and that said  committee consult city solicitor.  It was moved that the street committee ascertain the amount due men  working* on the sidewalks and report  to the council.  The city clerk was instructed to purchase a Canadian flag for the city hall.  Council adjourned.  be dependent upon the C. P. R. for  providing low freight rates on transcontinental business. Mr. Curtis became hopelessly involved on the railway question. Cross-examined by an  individual in the audience, the minister of mines admitted that it would  take several years to make the railway  surveys through the Hope mountains  and Simtlkarneen district. Thus the  relief promised' b3'.the Martin government is very remote.  The meeting concluded with cheers  for Mackintosh.  Betting here is 2 to 1 on Mackintosh.

Hector IVJcRae, wh\_ recently visited  Greenwood a-R4 RepUbUs�� told aJRoss.  tend Itfiner representative that *' Jn  the Boundary* country the City of Paris  has from twenty to twenty-five teams  hauling ore to the Graves smelter. The  Knob Hill and the Ironsides ore bins  are filled and are only waiting the completion of the C. P. R. spur to ship to  the smelter at Grand Forks. The daily  output from these two mines, Mr. McRae understands, isi 2M tons_of_qre_per  day.   The B. C.  will commence ^stopF  ing ore in  about ten days, and then  will probably ship 200 tons per day to  the Trail smelter.   The Mother Lode is  preparing to stope from the 300-foot  level and expect to have their smelter  completed   by   the   end    of   October.  On the R- Bell work will be resumed  next   week   under   the    management  of Jack Hanley.   The   Great Hopes,  start   work   on   the   first   of   June.  This  was  one   of   the  first   propei-  ties  located   in   Greenwood   district.  Some years ago an arasta was worked  on it3 ore, but the free-milling ore gave  out a few feet from the surface and  changed  to  a  sulphide.    Larson   &  Greenough paid $12,000   cash,  which  was the biggest price paid for a property up to that time, 1893.   F. H. Oliver  is looking after the property in conjunction with his work on the Greyhound,  an   adjoining  property.   The  Recordia Syndicate properties will resume work in the early part of July.  This property is owned by a syndicate  in London,   The Sunset, in Deadwood  camp, crosscut the ledge on the 300-foot  level a few days ago.   The extent of  the showing is not known.    Work on  the Boundary Creek Mining and Milling company's properties will be resumed some time in June, shortly after  the   arrival of   Lionel W. Harris, of  London, who is a director of the London and Canada Syndicate, which is  the parent corporation of the Boundary  Creek Mining  and Milling company.  The ore from the property of this company is the richest  yet found in the  Boundary creek country, shipments to  the Trail smelter last winter having  netted about $150 to the ton, the values  being largely in silver.  Governor Mackidtosh left this afternoon for Rossland, after a week's stay  in the Boundary country, during  which time he visited the principal  points |in the district. His reception  was everywhere favorable and he returns highly pleased with the prospects of election, which, though never  uncertain, have baen greatly improved'  by his personal canvass and addresses  to the_ electors. Mr. Mackintosh came  here almost a perfect stranger, except  by reputation, to nine-tenths bf the  people. He went away the warm friend  of all those with whom he came in contact. Before his arrival all kinds of  stories had been circulated about him.  .The impression left by such political  gossip has been very largely, if not  wholly, dispelled. In ; particular he  was represented as a corporation man  and an ehehjy of labor. His speeches  and the publication of his record as a  public man have turned very many  who were at first prejudiced against  him on account of the stories referred  to, in his favor, and in Boundarp, aa  in Trail district, Governor Mackintosh will have a large percentage of  the laboring vote on the 9th of June.  Mr. Marl in, as an alleged friend of  labor, has been thoroughly exposed  and while some still cling to Mr. Curtis for Mr.. Curtis' sake, he cannot,  handicapped as he is in the race as a  follower of the present premier,pledged  to support or standing or falling with  him at the p oils, expect to win. Mr.  Mackintosh is an experienced parliamentarian and will bring much weight  to whatever administration he may be  allied with and his own interest in the  success of the mining industry is the  surest guarantee we have of the faithful advocacy of our interests.  Hon. Mr. Mackintosh "closed his  series of Boundary meetings at Eholt  on Saturday night. There were present over 100 residents of the town and  surrounding camps. G. Arthur Rendell occupied the chair. After a few  introductory remarks he called on Hon.  Mr. Mackintosh to address the meeting. In an interesting address, last-.  ing one hour, He placed his views  clearly before those present. He effectively answered all the campaign slanders that have been uttered against  him. He showed conclusively that he  was always a champion of the labor  interests and was never opposed to the  eight-hour law. He dealt with the  specious arguments of Ijis opponents  and c'osed a convincing speech by  urging the electors to use their influence in securing a sound and stable  government for the Province.  As there was no one present in Mr.  Curtis' behalf, the chairman called  on Duncan Ross, who dealt with Martin's record. He "showed that Martin  had violated his pre-election pledges,  had sacrificed his political friends in  his own interest, and,that no matter  howsound^the-policypromulgatedby-  hiin .bight be, absolutely no confidence  could be placed in him or in his intentions to honestly carry out the preelection promises which he now makes.  M. Tebo briefly addressed the electors, giving them some sound advice  in reference to their duty in this campaign.  Three cheers for Mackintosh and the  Queen brought a- quiet and orderly  meeting to a successful close.  On tlie Columbia and Western���Close Connection With S. F. & N.  Beginning about June,1st a change  will be made in the running time on  the Columbia and Western railway.  Trains will arrive in Greenwood about  11 o'clock at night and will leave here  at 11 o'clock in the morning*. Arrangements have been made with the Spokane Falls and Northern whereby passengers from the Boundary can make  direct connection with Spokane. F. S.  Forrest, superintendent of the Spokane  Falls and /Northern,- announces tlie  change in his line as follows :  "We intend to begin running anight  train with a sleeper from Rossland  about June 3rd. It will arrive at Rossland about 7:30 or-8 a. m.'-and will  leave Rossland about 11 p.m. This  will be iu addition to the present train  running each way, and will give a  double service. The new train will  enable passengers from Rossland, as  well as'thbse from the "Boundary coun  tiy and Republic, to go either east or  west over our line without loss of time  and to travel at night in com foi t, instead of losing a night on the journey."  A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.  A Broken Wagon Spring Causes Four Occu-  y pants to Be Thrown Out.  A "party composed of Mrs. Jack  Parks-Mrs. Fry, Bert Mclntyre and  Sam Waters, met with .a serious accident while driving in from Deadwood  camp early Saturday evening. Just as  the wagon was crossing the railroad  track on the [suielter ground, a spring  broke, causing -the occupants to be  thrown violently to the ground. Mrs.  Parks and Mrs. Fry were taken to the  hospital where an examination of their  injuries was made. Mrs. Parks was  found to have her collar bone broken  and Mrs. Fry two ribs. Bert Mclntyre  escaped with several severe bruises  and.a scalp wound, and Sam Waters  had a sprained ankle. The two gentlemen were taken to their .rooms. This  morning it -was ascertained that al;  were doing well.   '.  Certificate of Improvements.  NOTICE.  Au Thbre, Svb M.

The   Curtis  meeting simply became a Mackintosh  demonstration.     The   large   audience  gave   Mr.   Curtis   a   patient   hearing  throughout his weary discourse. Mayor  Goodeve   of   Rossland  followed.   His  reply was brilliant, logical and convincing,    As he demolished the flimsy  arguments of Mr. Curtis and exposed  the insidious methods of Martinism,  the entire audience burst into cheers.  Mr. Curtis  seemed  to appreciate his  position very keenly.   He paraded the  Mongolian  spectre, delivered a panegyric on Hon. Joseph Martin and declared for state-owned railways.    The  minister of mines did not disclose the  methods by which the Martin government propose to raise the 520,000,000  required to carry out its  pet projects.  Mr.   Curtis    absurdly    declared   that  Mr. Martin would make the  C. P. R.  a   state   railway   within   five   years.  A few moments before he had admitted  that   the projected railway from the  Coast to Midway would connect with  the C. P.

Boer Official-: Appointed to Receive  the Britisli--The War Is Practically Over.  tended to overrule the injunction aal.ed  for by himself and allow the mines to  be worked in opposition to the mandate of the courts. Mr. Curtis all  through the campaign has maintained  that statements to ordinary individuals  have one meaning', and an entirely different meaning to a clever lawyer.  The ordinary individual, after reading the injunction, will be apt to conclude, notwithstanding Mr. Curtis'  assertion, that Mr. Martin did intend  to close the mines.    Here it is :  For an jn junction to restrain defendants from mining for, raising, getting  or winning- any coal, coal substances  or other substances upon or from said  land under said portion of the sea and  upon or from said foreshore until the  trial or other determination of this  action.  London,May 31.���The Daily Mail has  the following dispatch from the Earl of  Rosslyn, who was a prisoner at Pretoria, but -who evidently was released  as a civilian :  "Pretoria, May 30���11:40 a. m.���  Pretoria will be occupied in about two  hours without resistance. President  Kruger has i^oiie to Wateryaalboyen.  Burgomaster Desousa is authorized to  receive the British. He, with an influential committee of citizens, including Chigf Justice Gregorowski, has  been appointed to preserve life and  property during thc ��� interregnum.  Everything is quiet, but the crowds  are waiting expectantly in the Church  square for tlu arrival of thc British.  Fearing . pos-.-ble disturbance and  bloodshed among- the prisoners of war  at Waterval, United States. Consuls  Hay and L.eighwood insisted on 20  officers being lib .rated on parole to go  to the men. Their action cannot be  too highly praised. ��� I was permitted  lo accompany the officers."  London, May 31.���Lord Roslyn's  dispatch is confirmed by a message  from the Reuter agent at Pretoria, but  up to this hour the Avar office has nothing from Lord Roberts which it will  make public; but it is assumed that  the press advices are correct. Most of  the morning papers, through the-cour-  tesy of the Daily Mail, print Lord  Roslyn's dispatch and comment upon  it as news of the end of the war.  But the critics predict continued  guerilla warfare, as it is pointed - out  that Lord Roberts has taken a considerable quantities of arms, or stores  and large bodies of Boers must be still  in the field somewhere.  Watervaalboyen, where Kruger has  gone, is 130 miles east of Pretoria, on  the Delagoa Bay railroad. It is a small  place, in a mountainous country.  ANOTHER CHANGE OF OPINION.  Hon. Joseph Martin, according to  Hon. Smith Curtis, has a most convenient mind. He can change it at  any time it is necessary "to secure votes.  Political principle's can always be  sacrificed in Martin's interests. He is  now advocating a policy of borrowing  money to build roads and trails. In  the bye-election held in Victoria last  year, Mr. Martin denounced the policy  of borrowing money in the following  words-:  Then as to Mr. Turner's complaint  about there being nothing said about  a policy of vigorous development, the  government had no desire to follow in  Mr, Turner's footsteps- in the development of the Province. Mr. Turner  said they had expended $700,000 in  building roads. That was easy. Why  not make it $1,500,000, or $2,000,000 ?  There was no difficulty in spending  money, but it had to be borrowed, and  the time always came along when jt  had to be paid, and the country was  burdened with interest and charges on  the loan. It was sometimes necessary  to discount the future, but the policy  of the government would be to avoid  the contraction of unnecessary loans.  It is intended to handle every dollar on  business principles. A dollar is as  much to the government as to the individual, and as Micawber said; "In-  conic 20 shillings, expenditure 19 shillings 0, prosperity; income20shillings,  expenditure 20 and 6, bankruptcy."  It would be interesting to-know how  long Mr. Martin can remain steadfast  to any of the principles which he now  advocates. Fortunately for the Province,, on the 9th of June the electors  will give Mr. Martin ample time to  make.up his mind before being further  entrusted.jwith the management of the  affairs of this Province.  FOR  MAIL  CONTRACTS.  ^--London .-May-31,���A-dispatch--from  Lorenzo Marquez, received late last  niglit, says Commandant Kmus surrendered Johannesburg to Lord  Roberts. Passengers from* Pretoria  assert that the town is utterly demoralized and that a rush is being made forthe coast. Five train loads of fugitives are expected here tonight.  Border troubles between the Transvaal and Portugal may come to a head  at any moment. The Portuguese authorities are preparing to resist any  possibleinvasion. A mule battery has  been sent to the frontier.  By the release of the British prisoners  at Waterval a full brigade will be  added to Roberts' forces.

Before joining Martin he had ability and  a reputation for fairness and veracity.  He still retains the ability but is fast  losing the reputation. His speech last  evening was a clever attempt to make  wrong appear right, and black, white.  Mr. Curtis, wittf the courage of desperation, told the audience that the  injunction applied for by Joseph Martin did not mean what it said, but  something' entirely different. He told  the audience that Mr. Martin had no  intention to throw the employees of  the New Vancouver Coal company out  of employment. He wanted to secure  the injunction, but as soon as the  courts granted au injunction to stop  working  the   mines,   Mr.   Martin  in-  Fairview Drug And Book Store  �� JOHN LOVE & GO. ��  Dru^ists and Stationers  ��� a  ."',      .XL      .jf4 .  ���nf     ."?    -A"  FAIRVIEW and CAMP McKINNEY.  ."*      i"i     Jfe  -/*,���      �����_?     1���"  A  full   line   of    Drugs,    Stationery  D.ruggists Sundries.
