A distinguished party' of Canadian  Pacific railroad officials arrived in the  city yesterday afternoon on a .tour of  inspection of the Boundary district.  At the head of the party was D.

THE joukmhv.  ��� The car "Metapedia" left Nelson  yesterday morning and crossed the  river to West Robson, where it was attached to the regular west-bound:train.  Arriving at Eholt, a majority of the  party left the car and boarded a special  engine and went up as far as Hartford  Junction, where carriages were in  waiting, and they drove through  Phoenix, noting the improvements  therer*-and.-=came-=down-*-late-=-in - the  afternoon to this city, where tliey remained all night. The evening was  spent visiting the smelter and the  club. Early this morning the party  were astir and strain was taken for  Midway. After returning a trip was  made out on the Deadwood spur to the  Mother Lode mine and after luncheon  the party left for Grand Forks, where  they will be picked up by the regular  eastbound aud will spend to-night in  Rossland.  ATil,K   WITH   TH-.   MANAGKK.  General Manager McNicoll was seen  yesterday- evening by a Times man  with whom he chatted pleasantly for a  number of minutes. He said that it  was his first trip to Southern British  Columbia since 1891 when he visited  Nelson and spent five days there fishing. He had hoped to have visited the  Boundary before now but business had  kept him always along the main line.  Of the trip he said: "I have enjoyed  it thoroughly. Greenwood presents an  air of prosperity to the visitor that is  refreshing. 1 noted at once .how well  kept your streets were. In fact this  one thing has been a subject of discussion with the party. We look t<>  Greenwood becoming an important  mining and smelter centre. Naturally  since the company has spent such a  vast .sum of money in railroad construction throughout the Boundary we  are all anxious to know how the mines  will turn out. When they comineuce  shipping to the smelters we shall be-  satisfied. I can assure you that the  policy of the company will be to keep  pace with the mining development.  We are-going to do our best to encourage it, and just as soon as a mine  wants a spur and can ship ore. it wili  go in."   Asked if the company pro  pose extending the line in the near  future west from Midway, he replied:  "1 can tell you one thing, for some  considerable time past'., the.'company  has had out west of Midway'":.rid-in the  Siinill.aineen district parties of surveyors. They have been looking over  that section and making-report'-aud  when conditions warrant it tlie road  will be continued west." Mr. McNicoll said he had nothing.of interest  locally to announce. He asked a number of questions about the mines' and  camps generally of the Times man.and  expressed satisfaction at the information given him.  AN   IMPORTANT   ANNOUXCKMEN'T.  Another member of the party interviewed was R. Marpole, the general  superintendent of the Pacific division.  From him it was learned, and the  Times is the first paper to official ly  make the announcement, that the Imperial. Limited service will start front  Vancouver on June 10th.. At.thesame  time a new schedule will go into effect  on the southern branches, enabling a  through connection with Greenwood  by the Crow's Nest Pass line and the  Arrow Lakes steamboat service. .At  present passengers for Green wood  coming in over the Ct'��>y's Nest are  foreed to stay over night at Nelson,  Hind from western poi 11 ts.1',on ,the, 'inai 11  jjtiie over night at West .Robson. .Tliis  ���i.-ito be obviated by a change, hi the.  running time, and passengers will  come right through the sanie evening,  arriving at Greenwood, at 11:20 p. i'n.,  instead of in the afternoon as at  present. The outgoing train from  this point will leave here at 11:30 in  the morning. Regarding-the ballasting of the balance of the line between  here and Midway, he said that it would  be finished as soon as possible, but hot  in time to run any excursion there as  he had hoped ori the Queen's birthday.

'���."'.  _-_oxdon, May 17.���The closing days  of the drama at Mafeking .have been  marked by intensity of dramatic interest as unexpected as it is out of proportion to the forces engaged. The  news that the half-famished garrison  was not only able to repel an attack,  but to inflict such heavy loss in killed  and prisoners as reported in the dispatches from Capetown, announcing  the capture of Commandant Eloff, the  grandson of President Kruger, and 90  of his men, makes Great Britain more  than ever proud of Colonel Baden-  Powell's  little  band  and   increases to  _a_^__\___.__=_P_i��_L--___^^  their relief.  L,oni>ox, May 17.���The war office  has received from Robert's the following dispatch dated Kroonstadt, Wed-  nestay : "Rundle yesterday 'occupied  Meqtiatlings Nek and Modder Poort  without opposition. Hunter has entered the Transvaal, and has advanced  within ten miles of Christiania. Methuen has succeeded in reaching a point  15 miles, ou Hoopstead road without  seeing the enemy. Natives and local  whites have confirmed the previous reports of the disorganization of the  Free Staters. The situation here is  unchanged."  Pkktokia, May 17.���An official bulletin announces that the federal troops  stormed and occupied the forts around  Mafeking on Saturday morning, aud  the same night the federals were surrounded, losing, as far as known, 7  killed and 17 wounded and a number of  prisoners. The British casualties are  said to have been 50 killed and wounded.  It is reported that the advance guard  of the force proceeding to the relief of  Mafeking from the south was repulsed  Tuesday.  London, May 17.���A dispatch from  Lorenzo Marques, dated today, says  that Commandant Elofl", grandson of  President Kruger, with a patrol, entered Mafeking. Colonel Baden-Powell  opened fire on the burghers, killing 17  of them and taking Kloff and *X) of his  men prisoners.  LOMH-N, May 17.���In the committee  room of the House of Commons this  morning Sir James Kitson, Liberal,  announced that Mafeking had been  relieved. The war office, however. wa��  uuable to confirm the announcement.  A dispatch from H. C. Shaw, counsel  for Rendell & Co. in the damage suit  against the city, announced that Mr.  Justice Martin, al'ter listening' to the  arguments ou law points in the case*  had confirmed the award of the jury  and given judgment .for Rendell A. Co.,  with costs, against the city.  The case arose in connection with  the lowering of the Copper-street grade  opposite Rendell & Cd.'s block, at the  corner of Greenwood aud Copper  streets. Rendell A Co. had secured a  grade from the then city engineer, and  the block was erected on this grade.  Last year the*.council decided to do  certain work on Copper street, and the  street was lowered at least 18 inches  below the grade given to Rendell &  Co. The firm protested, but the mayor,  who had assumed direction of'the street  work, was obdurate a.id insisted that  the street should be lowered. Rendell  & Co. .then instituted legal pro-  ceediugs, and the case came up  in Rossland before Mr. Justice'  Martin and special jury. The- jury  award .36,500 damages, but before  judgment could be given, the judge  desired to hear the law points in the  case argued. This was 'done at Victoria this week when judgment was  given as stated above..  Miller Bros., owning the opposite  corner, have a similar suit against the  cityj^bi^tactipii-was.'defefred, awaiting  decision in the Rendell case. The  trial will now be proceeded with unless  the city take steps to effect a compromise.  There is more talk of au appeal, but  the consensus of public opinion in the  city is to the. effect that sufficient  money has already been expended in  unsuccessful'.litigation, and that the  wisest.course.is .tu i-mleav��u' tu settle  all disputes iu si 11 amicable manner.  -.BORROWED'IN AMERICA.'--.

Incorporation papers of the Pacific  States Telephone & Telephone Company have been filed at Portland ,'fhe  company is to have capital stock of  815,000,000. This is a consolidation of  the four principal telephone and telegraph companies on the Pacific coast  namely, the Pacific Telephone.& Telegraph company, the Sunset Telephone  & Telegraph company, the..'

Cbc  PUBLISHED BY  The Greenwood Times Printing and Publishing  Company, Limited.  11 unca:* Koss EmvoR.  SATURDAY, MAY .l��l", Witt,  OPINIONS   OF   THE   EAST.  Eastern I/iberal newspapers 'who  know Martin are not at all enthusiastic  about his candidature. The Montreal  Witness recently published the following scattering condemnation and the  Toronto Globe re-prints it in full:  "Mr. Martin's policy, is, of course, a  demagogue one, appealing to thc provincial prejudices of the people of British Columbia as against the Dominion  aud Imperial interests, to the interests  of the minors as against the mine-owners, and to the prejudice.-, of the I'.-iro-  peans against the Asiatics. His policy  includes Government ownership of  railways, which is perhaps a good, but  is as yet an impracticable measure;  construction of a new railway from the  co;ist to Kootenay mining districts, a  policy intended to catch the electors of  Kootenay district and the coast; exclusion of all Mongolian labor, which  is in contravention of British treaties,  and cannot, therefore, be enacted; resistance to encroachment on the Provincial rights of British Columbia by  he Dominion Government, a d-jcla ration of war against 1 he Imperial and  Dominion Governments for keeping  British Columbia legislation against  the Japanese within the limits of the  treaty obligations, and an eight-hour  labor day .to catch the mining vote.  There can be no doubt that this policy  ���is popular with th'e unthinking classes  who arc strong in.numbers in-British  ���Columbia. And it is quite possible that  -vit'i Mr. Martin as-premier serious  trouble maybe caused to all Canada by  his rnlership. It i.s one of thc dangers  of our system of appointing political  partisans to governorships that now  and then one of them occasionally,  from political prejudices, .uses the  royal prerogative as thc Queen herself  oi* the Governor-General would not  think of using it."  we think the. report in   the* Vancouver  World of .the  Tvfartih-Cui'tis Jmeetiug  here takes the cake.''  In   twen*|y-threfe  lines.'devo.ted.to*' a report of  what Mr.  Duncan Ross is "alleged to  have; said,  j there are over  twenty-three   misstate-  i ments, not the least of whicli is one to  ! the  effect   that   Mr.   Ross  called Mi*.  j Martin a   government  wrecker.    Any  i one wlio was  at  the   meeting  will remember that it   was ���: Mr. Martin-hiru-  I self who claimed to have  been  a  gov-  eminent wrecker and a successful one:  Another  point   made  by   the World  report is  that Mr.  Ross "declared  he  would  prefer   J. Roderick  Robertson,  mine-owner, to John . Houston, a laboring-man's friend.    Mr. Ross said nothing of the kind; but what   he  did, and  did successfully, was to show lhat-Mr.  Joseph Martin staled at a public meeting at Ymir  that  he   (Martin)  would  just as soon see   Mr. Robertson elected  as Mr. Houston.    We don't think it is  much use trying to correct such a palpable  liar  as   the World is, but  it  is  just as well to let tht: public know what  we think  about   our   mendacious contemporary.  WHAT'S  IN A NAME ?  NO    PARTY   LINES.  The best element of Victoria Liberals pursued a sensible course last night.  They met the best element in the Conservative party and then and there  decided that their lirst duty was not to  pari}* but to country. They.decUledthat  it was more in the interest of the province to release it from the clutches of  Martin than if was to exploit party interests. They forced the candidates  opposing thc Martin government to  adopt a similar view and in the city of  Victoria there are no party politics  "but Liberals and Conservatives have  united with one object in view���the destruction of Martinism.  There is nothing in Martin's record  nor in his platform which calls upon  Liberals  as a party  to  support him.  Martin considers himself stronger  and of more importance than the  Liberal party. At Greenwood he made  his position clear. He declared he did  not want the support of the Liberal  leaders, it would do him more harm  than good, He was running on his  platform. I/ib^rals~Svho~b"elieve"that  a season of Joe Martin would prove  disastrous to the province are bound  by no party lines to giving him support. They are perfectly free to vote  for his opponents.  Mr. Cotton has appropriated the  name of "Provincial Party" for the  remnant of that great combination  formerly led by Semlin. We say "appropriated." We believe, however, he  has stolen it. At the-last general election, when federal party lines were  suggested to and refused by Hon. J. H.  Turner, he called his party, in lien of  a better name, the "Provincial Part)-,"  and their central committee rooms at  Victoria were so labelled. The matter  is, however, of very little consequence  in itself, because a party led by Cotton  means F. C.-Cotton all the same as a  part)- led by Martin means Joe Martin.  A man down in Georgia was asked  what he would call his baby. "Durned  if I know," he replied; "we've used up  most all the good names we. know of  on the dawgs." The great difficulty  at the present time in designating  parties is the number of them iu the  lield, a condition of affairs which forms  the only logical argument for straight-  party lines.  MACKINTOSH CANDIDATURE.  As has been announced, Hon. C. H.  Mackintosh has returned 'from the  east. According to the Rossland papers  he was accorded very enthusiastic receptions both at Trail and Rossland  upon his arrival. It is understood that  he will, now .enter upon the canvass  with great vigor. He. will speak at  Rossland tonight and at Trail tomorrow night, and will then come into the  Boundary. Jn all probability he will  speak iu Greenwood on Thursday  night, although we have no definite  in formation on that point. ��� The  people of this district, whether unanimously in his favor or uot, will be  very pleased to see and hear Mr.  Mackintosh, and he may be assured of  large and respectable audiences and a  good hearing.  THE VICTORIA CROSS,  NO LICENSE LAW.  c The discussion upon' the disallowance of the Liquor License Act of 1809,  has developed the fact that there is  now no liquor license law in force in  this province at all outside of municipalities, and that any one who sees lit  can sell liquor when and where he  pleases so long as he keeps outside  municipal government. This curious  fact is caused as follows: The former  liquor license act was Chapter 122 of  the Revised Stbtutes. It was repealed  by Chapter 40 of the statutes of 1899,  which substituted a new scale of fees  for those in the old act, but did not  provide for licenses, that whole subject having been dealt with by Chapter 38 of the same year (1S99) which  Chapter 38, is now disallowed. The  question of the granting of licenses to  sell liquor is therefore in the sa.me position as if no'legislatiou at all had  ever been passed upon the subject,  with the result as stated above, that  any one who may see lit may sell liquor  any place in the province outside of a  municipality. Thus is exemplified,  another of thc beautiful uncertainties  of the legislation for which Hon.  Joseph Martin, thc Attorney General,  is responsible.  Dispatches from the seat of war announce that Rev. Father O'Leary, with  the First Canadian contingent, has  "been���reeom mended ���-^for^-the���-V-ictoria.  Cross for heroic conduct on. the battlefield of Paardeberg. This good priest  is much belcived by the regiment.  Though sixty-eight years of age he  stood the arduous journey to the  battlefield and during those trying  days before Cronje's surrender was always in the firing line, ministering to  the wounded and dying? When the  history of the war comes to be written  there will be told many tales of gal-  lantry aud heroism, but none more inspiring than that of the noble Father  O'Learv.  EDITORIAL   NOTES.  AT Reyelsloke the premier told his  audience that when he was called on  to form a government he asked Mr.  Diuisniuir to join him. At Kaslo he  told his audience that he could not a.sk  any of the members of the old house  to join ihis government because they  had all taken part in the demonstration against the ''lieutenant-governor.  Yet Mr. Dunsmuir was one of these.  There is this peculiarity about Joe  Martin, that he does not care whether  his stories hang together or not. He  assumes that tlie people are fools and.  will not take note of any discrepancies.���The Province.  A   LYING   REPORT.  For an example of  downright   lying  aud   deliberate  falsification  of facts,  AT Kaslo Premier M'trtin said of  Ralph Smith, M. P. P., that "he believed Mr. Smith had something to do  with the labor, organization in Nanaimo." Oh, cheerful Joseph! He  might have asked Mr. Curtis, wlto  would have informed him that Mr,  Ralph Smith is president of the De-  minion Trades and Labor Council and  is known  from. Victoria to Halifax as  one of the most prominent and independent: labor leaders in tlie Dominion,  We: gave -Mr'; .Hartin credit for more  tact than to endeavor to discredit Mri  Smith's "position in the labor world.  IT is understood that John Kean is  going to contest the Slocan riding as  the "business man's" candidate, and  some of liis Conservative friends are  trying to force the figl.it on those lines  against- Bob Green. Such a course, if  adopted, would be suicidal. Bob Green  will- have ,a' walk-over in. the Slocan.  He is-.even more popular than he war-  last election, and certainly Kean is  not a stronger candidate than was  Retallack, Kt-an is probably a good  i'uan in many ways, but no man in  Slocan riding can win with Green in  the field.   -; **   '  This is the Vernon News' -comment  on W. J. Snodgrass, who is the Martin  candidate opposing Price Ellison :  "Mr. Snodgrass was formerly an  American citizen, having spent most  of his life ill Oregon, where he was at  one time a member of the state legislature. A few years ago he came to.  this province and engaged in the sawmill and hotel business at Okanagan  Fallsi Later on he became proprietor  of a stage line between Penticton and  Grand Forks, which he still continues  to run. He is said to be a fluent  speaker and an experienced campaigner, being well, versed in American political methods."  Tin:'!'i." is a growing idea in Eastern  Canada that a good many of the  Canadian hoys who are now soldieiing  in South'Africa, will either remain in  that country in good : government positions or will be-taken into the Imperial regular army as officers. Those  Who come out bf the fray alive and  well will deserve the best that is going,  but "at the same time we cannot help  thinking that the laud of their birth  offers as good opportunities* as can be  had in the world.  "What could .have been settled for. a  couple of drinks at one time will, now  cost the city-not' less than- $S0O."���  Alderman Sharpe's remark'-at the city  council session, re arbitration with Mt.  Ostrosky, and the alderman has been  doing his level best to close up the ai-  fair and settle the arbitration on an  amicable basis: Let the rest ot  the cases ' be settled fairly to all  parties aud this endless and costl)  letigatiohcea.se.  An exchange says that a good many  of the electors attend the Martin  meetings for the purpose of seeing  -with their eyes the wonderful Joseph.  But if this is the case, how immense  would.be the crowds that would! attend  political meetings just lo catch a  glimpse of the erstwhile finance min  iste>-, Colin 4- #''''.e'"���? ^/veu a 'l"iie  miisennj y.��}.!4 !fla.ke Mo f}.��??e>' ex"  hibiting hi'T*.

Mr. Mack brought  samples down with him to have assayed. The ore is typical Deadwood  camp ore that cannot be distinguished  fiom that of the Mother Eode  near which properly the Butcher  Boy is situated. ' There is  a 100-foot shaft on the property and  from the bottom of the shaft a drift  has been run 30 feet west before; the  ore body was encountered. ' This >drift-  will be continued to cut through-the:  ore vein. The showing at the Butcher":  Boy is so encouraging that arrangements are being made for the purchase  of a hoist and pump, of sufficient  capacity to develop the property to the  1,000-foot level.

The Camps Will Be the JYlecea of  i Operator This Summer.  R.Malcolm is down from the West  Fork. He is heavily iiitere&ted in that  section, owning claims on Dry, Beaver,  China aiid Cranberry creeks. He told  the Times this nioruing that tlie West  Fork will be thie Mecca for the prospector, mining operator and expert this  'summer.' There isAplenty of work being started along the various creeks  that empty into the West Fork. He  says that on the big properties, such  as the Caruii and Washington and  Idaho mines, development at depth is  being delayed for want', bf completion  ' of the main wagon road tip the West  Fork.;'These: mines7now need machinery, especially, pumps, :atid until  the road is built it is impossible to continue work at depth on account of the  water.  He confirms the report of the big  strike of ffl^ena. on the Rambler and  Standard fSajb'tio.n claims. These fractions were located less than fifteen  days ago. They have opened up an  eight-foot ledge of galena which iias  been traced-for nearly 2,000 feet, he  says. It is a true fi-isure vein. Assays  from ore taken out of surface open  cuts gave returns of $70. -The claims  are ..on..Dry .creek, arid are o.vyned by  Rambon and Kennedy.

As there are about 25,000  free miners in the province, and as  hitherto these certili<:ates have expired 12 mouths from the date of issue,  the matter is one which is of the greatest importance.  At a special meeting of the Waterloo mining and milling company recently held in Spokane, it was unanimously decided to increase the capital  stock by 250,000 shares, making the  capitalization 1,250,000 shares. The  increase is to go into the treasury, and  has been made to permit of the further  development of the mine.' A large  part of the stock was represented in  person or by proxy at the meeting, and  the decision to enlarge tlie capital was  made unaiiiniouslY. The. mill restarted  crushing and there is sufficient ore on  hand to keep it running several days.  ���Four bricks of gold bullion, worth  together about $5,000, were, brought  down from Eoomis, in the Palmer,  mountain district, by .Messrs.

How many,mines are there in the  world that the ore can be measured by  the. acre?: There are a. few in the  .Boundary district that are already attracting attention, and one of them,  the Knob Hill hi Greenwood camp,  has $li;5bd,000-worth '���of ore in sight-  above its tunnel level.       ,,       .  .

The famous Rio Tinto mines  of Spain, with the management of  which W. A. Carlyle, late of Rossland,  is now connected, also made a splendid  copper yield last year, the output being  34,37.0 tons. ^Moreover, Canada's, total  yield of last "year was on the other  hand that of ..British South Africa,  where copper-producing mines in Cape  Colony and Namaqualand together  prdduced 6,490 tons, or slightly less  than the Canadian output. Meanwhile  Newfoundland, which is steadily increasing its copper output, gave a yield  of -2,700 tons in 1899.

K.RAPING THE WHIRLWIND.  Hon.   C.   II.   Mackintosh's   opening;      The Times was abused in   the  past  speech  of the campaign   at  Rossland ; for urging upon   the  electors   the  im-  ���'Inconsiderable interest is being mani-  >"f*fe_,.ed in the two boxing bouts that are  scheduled to take place ou the afternoon and evening- of the 24th  of May, In the afternoon, at  Midway, during- the celebrations,  Danny Dean and Andy King are  to box 15 rounds for the featherweight championship of British Co-  ;��� -���-'liuiibia. In the evening-, at the Alhambra Theatre here, Jhi.ti.ie Woods and  'A. D. McDonald will go ?.���) rounds.  McDonald is in tr.iinuig al Columbia,  and Andy King, Dan nie Dean and  J iin mie Woods are daily gelling into  condition here. Both con tests give  promise of being exciting.  Of the four men,' King is perhaps  the least known here. He is tho accredited feather-weight champion of  the Northwest, aud i.s ;t rapid and  scientilic fighter of the McCoy style.  He is well known in Anaconda, Montana, where he has won an enviable  reputation for his pluck. His last im-  . portant contest took place on March  2nd at Harrington, Wash. His opponent was Dick Holleywood, the "Omaha  Kid," who is a very clever man iu the  ring. The Ontftha boy, however, was'  no match for the Montana lad, for  King had hiui whipped in the second  of what was -to have, been a 15-round  contest, scoring five successive knockdowns. He has a reputation that Dean  will find hard to overcome.  Of the Woods-McDonald contest, it  is evident that the Phoenix crowd are  prepared to back McDonald to the  finish. He is ex-champion middleweight of the State of Miuuessota,  and while he did not show up to any  extent-except perhaps for his hitting  powers-in the last contest with Woods,  he is reported as getting back into his  old style, and with improved wind and  less avderpois his friends confidentially  look for his success, on the evening of  the 24th.  ou Monday night clearly demonstrated  that the veteran has lost none of his  force or adroitness. He not only succeeded in making his own position  clear, but he has also exposed, the fallacies of his opponents. Mr. Mackintosh bad been accused of being an  enemy of labor. Here is a portion of  his answer to that charge:  Perhaps Mr. Smith Curtis is not  aware, although I. think he is, that  when'the .struggle took place in connection with the printers' union in  Ottawa, my newspaper, the Citizen,  was the only one wliich stood by the  union and paid union prices, [Loud  applause.] Would Mr. Smith Curtis  have acted similarly under similar con-  Many will remember Hali Adali, the  big Turk, who gave several exhibitions  at the Alhambra last winter.   He said  when   he   left   town    he   was going  straight  to "Gay Paree."   Instead, he  got switched off down to 'Frisco, where  he  is  now  having lots of  fun in his  lazy Oriental way.   The  "lumbering  one of the desert," which  by the way  is not such an aristocratic  title as the  "Terrible   Turk"    or    the   "Sultan's  % Hi.on," as he was wont to be called up  here, says that the 'Frisco wrestlers (?)  are just as easy as he found the Greenwood ones.   He has tried conclusions  with A. G. Olsen, who goes through  ���life  under   the awe-inspiring  title of  the  "Ferocious Swede," and downed  him.   J. J.  Cameron, a bonny  Scot,  and Hans Klein, a  tall   Swede, have  been giving   him   trouble,  and   incidentally receiving some of the Turk's  hard-earned   gate   receipts   at  $1 per  ���   minute.   It   appears   that   Cameron's  accent was too much for the Lion, who  failed to throw  him   in 15 minutes, for  when  Hali Adali  secured his famous  "jail" hold the braw Scotchman ejaculated, "Dinua ye ken,  mon, ye canna  doon tne"; and again, when"  the Turk  caught hold of the Caledonian's kilts, he  howled " hoot  mon!"  so lustily  that  the Lion  forthwith released his grip���  ���*""-a's"*also'-"his=purse-strtu��S;r��� Hans -Klein,-  the Swede, earned  $16.35  in   the  lirst  bout and $5 in the second   in  a  match  with the Turk, who seeing his receipts  being eaten up, made   a special  effort  to stop the depletion of his.exchequer.  At the chance.of making a few dollars  out of the Turk, who looked easy, .one  evening a  valiant youth  named Fitz-  Gerald tackled him  on   the  basis of a  "plunk",a minute.    He  carried more  whiskey   in   him   than   strength  and  though he  is  reported   toy have   tried  hard, he only  earned  the7rnunificent  sum of 10 cents  before he was  set on  his head, and  then  smothered  by  the  " lumbering one of tlie  desert."   Hali.  Adali speaks no more of Paris, 'Frisco.'  is good to  him,   he  basks   in   its sun-!-  shine and daily  reaps  in   the dollars.  Fate i.s kind ; Allah has  not  forsaken  him.  ditions?

C: The Citizen newspaper was a  strong union ofliee from cellar to garret, and under your control paid the  highest wages. After your departure  from Ottawa it became a non-union  office. There is not a union man in  Ottawa worthy of the name that will  not always say you were always a  staunch friend of-labor when mayor  of Ottawa, You also proved a friend  of the cause. C. S. O. Boudkeat,t,  "Labor Advocate."  Ladies and gentlemen, that telegram  alone should be sufficient assurance for  the mine-workers and wage-earners of  Rossland riding. If there remains any  doubt upon the minds of my hearers  as to what position I always assumed  towards the workingman, I read the  following telegram from the city of  Ottawa, sent by one who was intimately associated with me in public  affairs:  " Ottawa, May 14, 1900.  " Hon. C. H. Mackintosh, Rossland,  B. C: At a meeting held December 6,  1898, presenting you with au address  from citizens of .Ottawa, following are  two extracts, from said address: We  are truly grateful for the manner in  which you, iu and out of season, have  responded to the calt of the working-  men of Ottawa, always espousing their  cause and at all times endeavoring to  eschew the policy of an agitator. We  recognized i'n you one of the leaders iu  the advocacy of the great public issues  affecting the working classes. The  signers of address included twenty  workingmen."  Mr. Curtis will thus see that the  interests of the working classes, as  well as all other classes, are safe iu my  custody.    [Loud applause.]  Again, iu discussing the eight-hour  law, Mr. Mackintosh, after proving  that he has alwajrs maintained that the  law should remain, referred to Mr'  Martin's position and said :  Mr. Ralph Smith,  whom  Mr. Smith  Curtis   eulogizes    as   one    they    are  anxious to welcome  as  a  colleague in  the provincial  government, "distinctly  repudiated    Mr.    Martin    consequent  upon  his   action   in   connection   with  legislation affecting  the workingmen.  Mr. Smith   said : "I have been one of  the men  who  cansiderecf in   1898 that  Mr. Mttrtin would be a great  agent of  benefit to the province.' I changed my  . in i n d. abou LSe pte.i.n ber ,_1899,J!A_vgjeer  So have we.)   I found that Mr, Martin  was  influenced   by   personal feejings  ayaiust others  to  work  defeat to the  people's party.    I  only  give   two reasons.    I consider  if  Mr.   Martin   had  been prepared to carry  out   the   broad  principles he  said   he  was, he  should  never   have   allied   himself  with   the  Turner party to defeat the  redistribution bill.    The next was the relief that  was sought to be given  the  coal nutters   of   Vancouver . Island. ��� What  did.  Mr. Martin do? He combined with the  corporation  of the Dunsmuirs   to  defeat a measure to relieve the condition  pf'.thiugs  for the co'al  miners." oYet,  lio.w willing Mr. Smith Curtis is to for-  get'jiall tliese   things,   to  condemn   me  arid to eulogize the Hon. Joseph   Martin.    I   submit   then   that   the  eight-  hour law  is  being  used   for  political,  purposes ; I  contend that it is a crime  against the'province  and   an   outrage  against common   sense  for any public  man to utilize the misunderstandings  aud tribulations of  his  neighbors for  the purpose^of/advancing   his own selfish interests.    I can look all classes in  the face and say that  this will  not be  my policy ; (applause); that I   will uot  pander to either prejudice or  passion ;  that I  will  use  what intellect  Providence has  endowed  me   with   towards  building up rather  than pulling down.  Mr. Mackintosh was equally forcible  in  reference  to  the   impraetibility of  government ownership of  railways in  this .province,   and quoted   from  Mr.  Martin's speeches in  Hansard to show-  that   the  premier  when  in  Manitoba  strongly urged selling   a  government-  built railway to the Northern Pacific.  Mr. Mackintosh's speech   was  by  far  the   best   delivered during  the   campaign.    Whether  he  wins  or loses he  is sure to make it interesting for his  opponents.  egotism of the mayor. Domineered by  an autocrat, the -city council took the.  position that neither property owners'  nor business men had any rights, that  their property could be damaged with  impunity and that they were not  entitled to redress. Much to the consternation of the municipal fatheis  and their legal adviser the court takes  a different position and asserts that  the property of the individual cannot  be sacrificed when municipal fathers  revel iu blunders.  While it is unfortunate that the ratepayers must pay the penalty for electing-men who have a peculiar penchant  for inist:*_kes,still Messrs. Rendell & Co.  are to be congratulated on the result.  They were driven off one street and  their property damaged by what the  council was pleased to call street improvements, and no sooner had they  erected a handsome block on another  street than the municipal boss came  along* and delibetately gave instructions to materially damage this also.  If there were no- redress for the property-owner, ho sensible business man  would undertake the erection of expensive blocks in the city. The lesson  is __ bitter one, but it was necessary to  teach those iu anthorit}- that private  rights must be respected.  This year's council can in no way  be held responsible for the blunders of  last year. They should realize by this  time that any effort to prove that  wrong is right is only saddling further  costs on the city. The easiest way out'  of the difficulty is. the cheapest way,  and every effort should be made to  avoid further expensive litigation.      <**>  As THK cause of the Boers becomes  more hopeless, their sympathizers in  America become more persistent in  their demands for intervention by  Uncle Sam, with a view to saving the  independence of the two South African  -republics and putting a stop to the war  before their final downfall. It is but  natural that there should be much sympathy for the liners, but governments  are not ruled by sympathy, and the  administration may be relied upon to  maintain its polity of keeping out of  affairs which do uot concern it.  The Elkhorn Lager Beer Contains only Pure Malt Hops, Try  It! It is kept on Draught or in Bottles by all the leading Hotel  Ix Health  magazine di.  Mr. R.J. Moll'att of   this  citv   has :ux XM  1 rXXWf  interesting article on climate, in which M{f_  he contrasts that of boundary, the I '��iZ  Kettle River valley and other parts of jjSJA-j-  Canada with the much-extolled climate . %$.%.  of   Colorado and  other   parts  of   thej^p  United   States.     Mr.   MolYatt   quotes jg4t    -   from  government  blue books to show   ^ "~  that  our  death-rate'is  lower than  in  portions of .the United States  famous  for   the .''salubrity'  of   climate.     The  article is well written and interesting.  J.  POUPORE.'SEGRETARr.  iliM.  LIMITED.  No Second Trial.  . QuKBKC, May 17.���A rumor is current here that the attorney-general of  Quebec has refused . application of  counsel in the Weir case for a new  trial. Weir is president of tlie defunct  Ville Marie bank and is serving a sentence of three years iu the common  jail for having issued a false statement to the government. Counsel  sought to have a new trial on technical grounds.  THli)  TURNING   TIDE..  The arrival of prominent mining  men in the city during the last few  days, and their determination to , at  once begin the vigorous development  of the several properties iu which they  are interested mean much for the city.  The season of dull times is practically  over, and soon the cit}' will be eujo}'-  ing" the advantage of having a large  number of men engaged in the surrounding camps. Not only is work to  be resumed on the properties which  were being developed previous to the  crisis���which���practically-.destroy.ed_,the.  milling market, but other properties  of great.promise are to be opened up.  The Winnipeg and the Morrison have  already contributed their share in the  shape of- pay-rolls, and the public  generally will be gratified to learn that  theowuers have decided to resume operations on a larger scale than ever. It is  more gratifying to have new capital  coming into the district, and the announcement that Messrs. Grecnough  and Wren have decided to expend a  large sum of money in developing the  Great Hopes will prove ���particularly  pleasant reading. Then, again, Mr.  Mack has men employed both at the  Butcher Boy and the Athelstan ; other  owners are getting ready to work their  properties. Tliese, with the big mines  and the smelter, will give a large  monthly payroll, so that tlje tide has  practically turned and in a short time  Greenwood will be enjoying greater  prosperity than ever before.  A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY.  Twelve Men Shot. Six Dead���The Act ol An  Unknown.  Copenhagen, May 17.���A telegram  from Kopin states that as the steamer  Kopping last night was passing' the  Prince Carl, a man sprang upon the  the, deck of the latter vessel and  shouted :>" If any one comes near I  will shoot;" at the same time a woman  .was seen hanging over the the ship's  side, shrieking for help.

'j.HE CITY'S DUTY.  A great fire destroyed the town of  Hull and a portion of the city ii of  Ottawa a short time ago and many  people were left homeless. The town  of Sandon was wiped out and the majority of its residents lost everything  they had in the world. Disasters of  this kind appeal to the generosity of  the people, and subscriptions came  pouring iu to help the unfortunate.  Greenwood enjoys the unique distinction of being the only town of importance which has neglected to do its  duty in helping those in need of assistance. There are uo people more generous than those of Greenwood and that  they have not assisted is  because the  she constantly grew worse, Then she !  begau to use F/lectric Bitters, which |  wholly  cured   her.
