McLeod has returned from a  trip to the Kootenay country. He  visited Nelson and Rossland. He stated that everybody is interested in nothing but politics. John Houston will be  elected in Nelson by a large majority.  He also believes that Mr. Mackintosh  will carry the city of Rossland by a  handsome majority.  London, June 7.���Military operas  tions in South Africa are apparently  at a standstill. For a day or two the  tired troops of Lord Roberts are resting, and he is filling the magazines  and warehouses at a new base, Pretoria, preparatory to a long chase after  the retiring Boers in the direction of  Lydenburg. His cavalry are probably  seeking to intercept Commandant  Botha. Some dispatches are .to hand  which left ���' Pretoria Monday while  fighting was going on outside the city.  They came by way of L/orenzo Marquess. One of them says: "Toward  the end of the day, when the British  were shelling the southern forts, a  number of projectiles burst, damaging  the suburbs. All day armed burghers  have been leaving Pretoria, going  east/where the greater part of the  rai'rpad' rolling stock has been removed. General Botha's fighting is  essentially a rear-guard action, the  object being not to defend Pretoria,  but to delay Lord Roberts until the  railway switch had been cleared and  the main part of the Boer army had  started to withdraw.' The British ad-  vanceappears to have left open to the  Boers the best line of retreat along  the railway."  Possibly Lord Roberts has been able  to-cut the railway before a full retire-  ment was effected. That. Pretoria  would 7be defended was apparently  given out after the council of .war with  a view of misleading the British.  Lydenburg district, to which provisions originally destined for Pretoria  have been diverted, and where a cartridge factory has been erected and  where reserve supplies of all sorts are  stored, is a volcanic region of fertile  valleys, enclosed bv great ramparts of  precipitous rocks, penetrated by nar-1  row. winding passes.  ",. There are herds of cattle in the valleys and much native labor available  for fortfying. The Boers used both  heavy and light artillery at Pretoria.  What is supposed to have been the last  train that left Pretoria arrived at  Lorenzo Marquez Sunday evening.  Passengers ^included���a��� numbers of  foreign volunteers who were leaving  Boers and also wives and children of  Hollanders.. They described Pretoria  as destitute of food and clothing.  What the Boer officials, could not  take the natives and townspeople did.  Probably the most important Boer  army is at Laings Nek where both  sides are passive. General Rundel and  General Brabant ��have withdrawn a  little -southward. Baden-Powell has  extended martial law to the Marce and  North Lichtenburg districts. Shots  were exchanged between Boer and  British patrols 18 miles east of Mafeking on May 28. Part of the forces  lately at Pretoria are reported to have  gone westward to meet Baden-Powell  and to make a show of holding the  country through which he and General  Hunter are moving. Dispatches to the  Daily Telegraph from Newcastle, dated Tuesday, describes Boers there as  un unorganized rabble without flour,  meat or sugar. Their surrender is only  a question of time. Nevertheless correspondents aver, they hold strong  positions with prospect of safe retreat  toward Lydenburg.  It is understood at Newcastle that  the British government has approached the Natal government with a proposition that Natal shall voluntarily  renounce local self-government for a  time in order that a. good system of  Crown government may be instituted  for all South Africa, leading in course  of time to federation and the subsequent authority of the various states  similtaneously.  Lorenzo Marquez correspondents at  tach significance to a number of British warships in Delagoa Bay, suggesting that they are there possibly in anticipation of aiding the Portugese in  the event of disturbances at the Transvaal border.  JAPAN AND RUSSIA  Said to Be Ready for Conflict Over Chinese  Difficulties.  Shanghai, June 6.���Soldiers dispatched to attack the "Boxers" fought  an engagement quite close to Peking.  Many were killed on both sides.  In consequence of the representations of the Japanese government, the  landing of a large Russian force at  Taku is alleged to have been' stopped.  It is believed here that should Russia  persist in sending a large military  force to the front a collision with  Japan will be the inevitable result.  Reports are current of the hurried  completion of the mobilization of the  Japanese fleet.      '  CITY COUNCIL.  By-Laws Discussed at a Special Meeting  Last Wight.  The council met last night to furthur  consider By-Law 47, relating to the annexation of Greenwood and Anaconda.  Mayor Hardy presided, and with the  exception of Alderman Croply, the  others were present.'  After going into committee, By-Law.  47 was read a second and third time,  but Alderman Galloway objected to it  being passed. _  Considerable time was taken up in  discussing the advisibility of using  Lynn Creek for water supply.  Thursday, June 21st, between the  hours of 8 a. m. and 4 p. m.. was^ made  the day for voting ori By-Laws 46 and  47, the city clerk to act as returning  officer. '..���.-���:���:  The matter of Debentures received  some consideration, the clerk being instructed to open communication .vith  the Manufacturing Life Assurance Co.,  stating that the city has $20,000 worth  of bonds for sale and to ascertain what  price they offer. :~ '    ���'���7'*: '  Mr. Curtis' Railway.  Among " other trumped-up charges  made by Mr. Curtis against Hon. C. H.  Mackintosh was one of having given;a  "black-eye" to the Sunset mine, in Ihe-  Similkameen, which Mr. Curtis, on. the.  authority of his notoriously unreliable  mining partner, says is "due of the  greatest copper properties in British  Columbia." What about* the --black-  eye" Mr. Curtis attempted to give the  Boundary country when he publicly  stated as a reason why a refinery must  be established ori the Coast instead of  in this district that "to run a refinery  would need 50 tons of matte per day,  which means 1,000 tons of ore per  day"? Mr. Curtis thus indirectly asserted that by the time the Coast-  Midway railway will be ready to take  the product of our mines to the Coast-  say two years hence, if it be built���.  this district will not be producing 1,000  tons of ore per day. And yet he says  that he has closely studied this question. Is this another evidence of his  sincerity? Rather, is it another proof  of his insincerity?���Midway Advance,  WEST_F0RK  F. T. Abbott Tells of the Rush  to That District.  PROSPECTORS RUSHING IN  Road Badly Needed���Bier Showings of  Hiffb-Grade  Ore ��� Merchants  Are Kept Busy.  F. T. Abbott, manager of the Snodgrass stage line, returned yesterday  from,a trip to the West Fork country.  He is enthusiastic about the district  and predicts for it a great future as  soon as the district' is opened up arid  easierx communication established  thereto.  "I visited the Washington and  Idaho," he said to a Times representative.. "It is without exception the best  surface showing I .ever saw. The  ledge has been prospected by means of  open cuts. There is 65 feet of ore  averaging $50 to the ton. There is  also a 100-foot shaft on the property  sunk on- the ore. There are several  properties on the same hill with splendid showings.  There is a big rush of prospectors  and men going in to do assessment  work on their properties. The day I  came out I met five outfits going in.  The stores at Rendell and Beaverton  are doing a good business but are  handicapped by lack of roads and  consequent difficulty in getting in  supplies.  Things are getting active, in town-  site, matters. At Beaverton, Mrs.  Thomyson is having the town subdivided, while I met Forbes M.; Kerby  going in to survey Rendell. A. Branson is interested in the site between  the two,   He will put in a saw-mill.  Mr. Abbott also stated that Dan McDonald has sold his stage line to a  Mr. Kelly arid., that in. the���future -s  stage will run six times a week between Rock Creek and Chesaw.  Day by day the work on the Mother  Lode mine is giving fresh evidence of  the great body of pay ore which the  property contains. Two cross-cuts at  the 200.foot level are in 90 feet of solid  ore; a third cross-cut which is nov: being ruii is in 45 feet of .solid ore and  the probablity is that the ore body here  will be same wi Uii as in the other two  cross-cuts.  FROM CHESAW.  ���������������Go^OHtfee^Listr^^^���  A Vancouver dispatch says : -' The  565 - residents of the Nelson riding  whose suffrage ��� has been hanging in  the balance for the last week or two,  may rest easy now on the,assurance  that they may exercise to the full their  voting prerogatives on Saturday next.  The appeal in the .Nelson voters' list  case was today allowed by the full  court sitting here, Justice Walkem  dissenting from the decision of Justices Martin and Irvine. The appeal  was from a prohibition order, granted  by Mr. Justice Drake at Nelson. It  was understood at first that costs were  adjudged to go with the order, but the  question has been laid over for decision, owing to a question raised by  E. P. Davis, Q. C, counsel for the respondent/^   Through the recommendation of  W. C.Noble, the local manager, John  Z. Beaton, who lost his left hand in  the Golconda mine in February last,  has just received 10,000 shares of treasury stock in the Golconda Mining company. The company had no liability  in the master, and the handsome gift  speaks hugely for the treatment by  the management of an employee who  was unfortunate enough to be injured  while working for them.  Mr. Smith Curtis stated last Wednesday night that he had been asked to  buy the newspapers that are opposing  him in this riding and had refused to  do so. He was challenged by the editor of The Greenwood Times .and admitted' that he did not include that  paper. If he intended to convey the  impression that The Advance in any  way approached him or anyone con-,  nected with him, he did so knowing it  to be absolutely untrue.���Midway Advance.

THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY ^IMES-  /.i  (Ueekly times*  PUBLISHED BY  The Greenwood Times Printing and Publishing  Company, Limited.  Duncan Ross ....'.Editor.  SATURDAY, JUN 12 9, 1900,  THE  POLITICAL SITUATION.  Martin either lost an opportunity,  which was. golden, through lack of-  foresight, or he .was insincere in his  opposition to the "C.P. R. and iri; his  advocacy' of Railway- competition.'*1*' So  cunning'a politician as Jos. Martin  knew the situation too well not to have  taken advantage of it had his. heart  been as responsive as his tongue is  glib.    AN'ELECTION ROORBACK.  A gentleman of this Province, in  writing East regarding the political  situation in British Columbia, after reviewing the conditions which have  affected thc country, for some years,  concludes:  " It is well known and generally  understood that the Ottawa administration is strongly opposed to Martin  in his role as premier and his claims  to Liberal leadership in this Province.  " Deep-seated in tbe minds of a large  element of the electorate there is a  feeling that the constitutional usages  which form the bulwark of British  liberty and freedom should not be disregarded as they have been during the  present lieutenant-governor's tenure of  office. It is true that conditions are  unusual, but that state of affairs has  been brought about largely by the  unusual exercise of his prerogative.  If the people, of course, endorse the  present government, his conduct will  have been, palliated���I will not say  justified ���but if not he will undoubtedly suffer the consequences of  dismissal. If Bis acts in this connection should be permitted to pass into  precedent, it will, to say the least, be  unfortunate, inasmuch as the door will  be opened to grave constitutional  abuses in the future.  "And a strong, stable government is  what the Province requires at this  juncture. Among the ills'from which  the Province is suffering at the present time are those arising out of the  unsettled and unsatisfactory state of  affairs politically. There is a feeling  of uncertainty; .among those whose  interests are affected either in the way  of employment or in respect to returns  on money invested which is highly  detrimental to material development..  What is wanted politically is wise and  well-digested legislation, firm administration and a careful study of the  economic conditions which affect the  prosperity of the whole people. Even  brilliant people are less to be desired  than those in whom the people at home  and abroad will have confidence. With  Premier Martin's record as political  disturber and wrecker of governments,  the one element of success in whose  life as a politician has depended upon  unrest and eternal combat, and with  his legislative and administrative  record while a member of a government in this Province, he cannot be  regarded as a safe man, as such a man  as the electorate as a whole would  desire to see at the head of affairs.  A GOLDEN OPPORTUN-TY LOST.  So far as the Kettle River Valley  Railway is concerned, as Mr. Bodwell  has pointed out in his address at Rossland, Mr. Martin"fiad~if iiThrsTpowef to'  bring the C. P. R. to its knees and  give the Boundary country what it  fought so hard to secure, viz: Railway  competition.  Mr. Martin has posed a good deal as  a supporter of the Kettle River Railway and as an antagonist of the C., P.  R. In fact, notwithstanding the position he recently occupied as the solicitor of the Company, he is represented  in a cartoon, more striking for the absurdity of the Premier's attitude than  any truth which is conveyed, ' as a  giant dealing a death blow to monopoly  in the form of the C. P. R. Keeping  this in view, what did he do when he  had the opportunity of once for all  solving the problem and proving his  sincerity ? Last year, at the very time  Mr. Corbin had renewed his application for a charter for a railway into  this district, the C. P. R. applied for  an extension of the time in which it  was necessary to make a selection of  lands granted as a bonus to the C. &  W. Ry. and file a plan of the same.  The time limit had expired in April,  1898, and the Company had virtually  lost its right to receive the land. What  would have been easier for Mr. Martin  as Attorney General to have stipulated  as a.condition of renewal, that the C.  P. R; should withdraw its opposition  to the Corbin charter, before extending  the time asked for ? The C. P. R. had  already expended a large amount of  money in surveying the line and constructing the road and could not have  afforded to throw it up. It would have  had to come to terms. What are the  facts in regard to the matter ? During  the session of 1899 an act was passed  extending the time to the C. P. R. two  years, wholly without conditions.   Mr.  A story, which originated in the Industrial World, Rossland, is being  circulated here and elsewhere in the  Jiding.    It is as follows:  The employees of the C. P. R. at  Trail, both on the railway and in the  smelter, are beginning to feel th$  pressure the company is bringing to  bear on them to compell them to vote  for C. H. Mackintosh. One by one the  employees are called into the office and  talked to, and arc finally given to'  understand that if they do not vote  right their discharge is certain. They  have also been informed that if Mr.  Mackintosh is not elected the smelter  will be shut down indefinitely.  In order to effectively give the  quietus to the rumor, the employees,  who are justly indignant on account of  it, have voluntary made the following  statement we are requested to publish.  Here it is:  We,' the undersigned, employees of  the Canadian Pacific Railway company and smelter at Trail, having read  statements in the Industrial World of  May 26th last, to the effect that pressure is being brought to bear on us to  vote for C. H. Mackintosh; that we  are called into the office one by one  and given to understand that if we  do not vote right our discharge is certain, and that we have been informed  that if Mr. Mackintosh is not elected  the smelter will be shut down in>-  definitely���beg to contradict the said  statements in the most unqualified  manner, and to say that there is not a  word of truth in any of them. .

As a matter of fact,  the strictest neutrality  has  been enjoined on all the C. P. R. officials.  a day/within two years, aridywe have  mines like the Mother Lode, B; C. and  a dozen others already hear, or in, the  shipping stage;*to depend 'upon for an.  output. Why, under the circumstances,'  should the matte of *thisv,,district be.  sent to the Coast tp be refined ? Why  not refine it here and send the refined  product to the Coast,7 saving 50 per  cent of the bulk and then ship by sea  as Mr. Curtis suggests. ���  By the way, it has.not been explain-  whether the Government proposes to  build the refinery7 itself or whether  capital has been secured to undertake;  it. . Surely Mr. Curtis would not,, after:  the fashion of the bunco townsite man.  base his promises to the electors on  things which exist only on paper, or,  more illusive still, in his imagination.  What guarantee haye .we that the Government, if elected, could or would  build a railway or that a refinery  .vould be built at the Coast at all ?  ;which* will absolutely be defurict .after  'the 9tli of 'June.-���.anil'' upon, a ^platform  that neither7 he7rib ;Mr.--7Marti'ii -ivilt;  ever haVe the,slightest"ojpportunity of  carrying into effect. The extravagent  promises, heats' making-to the-^ electors  are the merest hallucinations on his  part and greater hallucinations on- the  part of those who are foolish -enough  to accept such visions of possibilities.  WHY, NOT GREENWOOD?  Smith Curtis proposes among other  thing, to establish a refinery at the  Coast to which the Government Railway will carry our matte. Assuming  that Mr. Curtis' figures are correct as  to the cost of treatment and the relative  economic advantages of his scheme,  why not have thei refinery at some  point in the Boundary ? Mr. Curtis  says it would requre au output of 1,000  tons of ore a day, or 60 tons of matte  to make it pay and therefore it should  be at the Coast. In the name of common  sense where is thc copper matte to  come from, if not from the Botndary in  the first place? He spoke of Texada  Island points and up the Coast, but it  will be years before the prox'erties  there, if the are developed at all, will  produce copper ore to any material extent.      7.    , .     .  Before Mr. Curtis would be able to  complete Hi.s road to Midway, assuming the ability of the Government to  carry it through, Boundary could produce not only 50 tons of matte per day  but 150. If the estimates of reputable  engineers *like Messrs. Robins and  Williams of'Phoenix are correct, that  camp alone will ship 2,000 tons  of  ore  AN INCONSISTENT POSITION.  LOOKING TO DENVER.      :  The action of Smith Curtis in bringing- such men as Chris. Foley and  James Devine to instruct good Can a-,  dian and British workingmen in this,  district how to vote is, to say the least,  not complimentary to the intelligence  of our own people. These are no  doubt good myn as. private citizens and  ���eminently'quaU...(.I tp express'an opin-  ion on political issues in the cout'try  from which theyy recently came, but  why should we be subject to their  dictation and instruction? Mr. Foley,  ;_'t the meeting on Wednesday evening,;  admitted that he had just come from,'  Denver and other points on the other  s-d'- of the line nnd was not acquainted  w.lh the [.resent political issues of the,,  campaign. Nevertheless, because hei  has ipeeu identified with labor inter-;  ests and is to some"extent regarded as  a leader where he came ffQtn, he is  dragged on the platform here and else^  where to tell our . people what they,  should do. . At a time when the whole  British Empire has" been throbbing  with the sensations of victory after a  prolonged struggle over our enemies in  South Africa, it is inopportune, to say  the least, for those who" on the other'  side are pro-Boer sympathizers to be7  come our mentors'in matters political;  It is the sort of schoolmaKtership that  loyal British subjects, of whatever  class, should resent.  The Times feels free to speak ori this  subject. Its' course has been consistent on the questions affecting labor  interests. It has always paid'un'on  wages, and long before there was a  union' in the'district; it is now a union  journal; it has supported the eight-  hour law.from the outset; it has advocated government ownership of railways; it has'always been the mouthpiece of progressive Liberal principles,  more particularly where they applied  locally. As a consistent and1 constant  advocate' of these principles it must  condemn the men arid the methods now  employed in this cairipaigri being pa  raded in the guise of Liberalisrii to the  disgrace. and demoralization of the  Liberal cause in this Province.  In contradistinction to methods in  this' riding, we find snclj* tried and  trusted friends of labor as Jim Wilkes  aiid Ralph Smith, recognized leaders,  pjijthe^other side.   Jiiri Wilkes, chief  .Some persons-in this riding who are  good Liberals say that while they cannot "support Joe Martin they will vote  for Smith Curtis, because he is a  Liberal, Joe, Martin they, recognize to  be a discredited politician arid prac-:  tically a misnomer, so far as being, a  Liberal is concerriedl  Smith Curtis having no past as a  politician, it is held, is not in the same  position. It* is '*unfortunate for- Mr.  Curtis, if he. is all that his friends  claim .him to be, that he is a candidate  under Martin auspices. However, if  he were an angel pf light itself, he  cannot escape the fatepf his leader  He was selected by. Mr'.- Martin .as'minister of mines.

The Times has taken the trouble to  interview several persons from the  Coast as to the prospects of the Martin  canditure. Almost unanimously the  opinion is expressed that there is no  possible chance of his electing, at the  very outside, ov.er six candidates, with-'  in the whole Province, One gentleman,  a commercial traveller, who has just  come from the Coast, where he represents one of the largest firms there,  says it is doubtful if Martin himself  will be elected in the city of Vancouver.  The Coast districts, will be almost solid  against him. Taylor, in Revelstoke  riding, John Houston in Nelson and  Bob Green in the Siocan���all anti-Martin���will be.elected sure. Murphy in  West. Yale, Prince Ellison in East  Yale, either Fulton or Deane in North  Yale and Wells in North-east Kootenay,  everybody knows, are certain winners.  Martin has no candidates in Cariboo,  Cassiar, and North and South Nanaimo, so that,it is impossible to concciye  anything but absolute defeat for the  Government. Promises given by  Smith Curtis are worthless. This feeling is so general among visitors that  the Times, if it had no other source of  information, could have no doubt pf  the result. Mr. Curtis is seeking support as a member of the Government  two great political parties stand on; a  common ground.; when these.rights of  the 7pebple*yaVe;;;7attacked. v When ya  LieutenahtiGovernor foists, a.-gb'verri.-  tbent of- hijj own.making upon the free  a'nd independent electors 6f Brifisli*  Columbia, Liberals and Conservatives  must stand shoulder to shoulder to  teach this satrap that no such conduct  will be tolerated in this province aud  if their votes will strengthen the hands  of the Liberal government at Ottawa  in its desire to remove, from office a  man who would thus disregard'the.people's rights, their votes will be cast in  the right direction.  ThereHs still another serious view to  take of the ;situa.tion. To endorse the  motley.crew who are masquerading as  statesmen under; the title of the Martin  government would be to tell the world  that the electors of this Province have  but little regard for the kind of men  they.place in charge of the important  work'of administering the ��� affairs of  this Province. , They would simply be  placing a premium on repudiation,  upon wild and impracticable schemes,  and they would be taking a great step  forward townYds damning the business  putlpok-of tiie Province.

Next Saturday the electors of British  Columbia iwill be called upon to decide  upon matters that so far as they affect  the future ��� of fhe province, are the  most important that has^.ever been  connected with its political; life. The  electors have a serious duty to preform  arid the responsibility-is no light one.  There are grave issues involved. An  autocratic and erratic Lieutenant-Governor wrecked the Constitution in order to place au adventurer in power. He  dismissed the representatives of the  people and placed in-their stead a man  who represented no one but himself  and represented nothing but his own  ambition and thirst for vsngeance.  Every vote cast on Saturday for Joseph  Martin or a Martin candidate condones  this travesty ou constitutional rights.  Those electors who support Martinism  tell the world that they have but little  regard for the constitution which has  been.perfected only after hundreds of  years of struggle by the people.

Graadrient, Cape.Colony, June 4.���  The people's congress opened here  today. Mr. Pretoris, member of the  legislative assembly, offered a resolution declaring that in the opinion of  tlie majority of the Cape Colonists the  chief cause of the war was unwarranted and intolerable interference of  the ministry in London in theiriterhal  affairs of the .South African republics.  The member speaking ^ in support' of  the resolution said it "would be impossible to hold out the hand of friendship after the war, and asked: "Caii I  take.an English hand that perhaps is  stained with the blood of my brother?"  The resolution was adopted unanimously.  Another resolution presented affirmed that if the republics were ��� annexed,  the peace and prosperity of the country  would be irretrievably wrecked and  that in order to insure lasting friendship and prosperity the ��� settlement  must include the restoration of unqualified freedom and independence to the  republics and the colonists be allowed  a voice in the appointment of a governor of Cape Colony. A delegate was  appointed to visit Great Britain, Canada and Australia to explain the views  of those represented at the congress.  Before the close of the people's congress, Olive Schrie.ner (Mrs. Con-  wrigh) made an impressive speech in  which she predicted that the South  African Republics jroutd regain their  independence.

It  was decided 'that the city engineer  replace stakes in alley-ways of blocks  7 and 12, and also give Mr. Gulley the  frontage for Silver street.  F. S.

At a meeting of the  Greenwood Trades and Eabor Council,  held:Monday evening, June. 4th, a  resolution was passed instructing the  secretary to contradict a statement appearing in The Times of June 2nd,  editorially, in regard to Chris Foley,  wherein it was made to appear that  Chris Foley was an alien, and therefore was1 not qualified to discuss political questions in this country.  Mr. Foley is a native of this country,  was born in Toronto, Ontaria, Canada,  and is now and always has been a  British1 subject. He has resided in  Rossland for the last five years. He  was sent to Denver, Colorado, the past  month as a delegate from the Rossland  Miners'Union to the. eight annual convention of the Western Federation of  Miners, and just returned a few days  sprevipus (to the Curtis rrieeting, May  28th. iin Rosslandywhere Mr. Foley is  best known, he is considered very conservative and ism highly respected by  business men and all classes of  citizens.

The Times did not state that Mr.  Cnris Foley was an American. The  article to which Mr. Fisher takes exception was based on Mr. Foley's con-,  fessibn at the Smith Curtis meeting.  He stated that he had just returned  from Defaver and that he was not acquainted with the political issues of  the day. We are bound to accept his  first statement and all who heard Mr.  Foley will heartily endorse his second.  It is quite possible that Mr. Foley was  born in Torsnto, but accident of birth  does not control a man's good citizenship; that is regulated by his training  and environment. The article in The  Times was not an attack on Mr. Foley's citizenship but was for the purpose of showing what is an important  point, viz that the only labor leaders  who are supporting Joe Martin in this  election look to Denver for instructions,  while the truly loyal and patriotic  British laboring man who finds in the  history of his own country sufficient to  direct his political course, is found  fighting Martinism and for good government.

GETTING   DOWN  TO   BUSINESS.  People Went Wild With Joy  at the News.  CELEBRATION   AT   NIGHT  Most Inspiring, Most Wonderful Exhibition of Enthusiasm Ever  Seen Anywhere.  ILondon, June 6.���England has been  celebrating the.relief of Pretoria very  much as they did the relief Mafeking.  Drunkeuess was sli^litly less conspicuous, but after midnight the crowds  became uproarious and discordant  noises of every description ascended  from the city streets, usually silent at  this hour.  All during- the evening processions  marched along the Strand, Picadilly  and the other leading thoroughfares.  In fact, so great was the crush that the  easiest method of locomotion was to  join one of the processions, for whose"  strident choruses and waving flags all  traffic was stopped. Cabs and coaches  were freely chartered in honor of the  joyful occasion, aud these were soon  ��� so packed with invited and uninvited  guests that they assumed the. aspect of  living pyramids of Bachanalians.  Babies in arms, white-headed women,  girls of.the street, club men in evening  dress and "Whttechapel coster-mongers  gaily intermingled along the flaming  thoroughfares, bent on celebrating the  victory. In the faces of all were continually thrust huge peacock feathers,  described, for no known reason, as  "Kruger's preservers."  Girls were indiscriminately kissed,  jostled and tossed around amidst the  ecstatic jubilation of the midnight  crowd. A species of confetti, which  stuck to the clothes of the paraders,  proved a popular form of show ing one's  joy until the stores of the peddlers  ran out.  The night grew older and rowdyism  of the worst form held sway. From  almost every bar room, came sounds of  inebriate attempts to sing "God.Save  the Queen" and "Rule Britannia."  At the music halls and .theatres last  evening, the mention of L,ord Roberts  at Pretoria, brought every audience to  its feet in a second and it was almost  impossible for the performers to hold  the interest of those in front of them.  Every building possessing an illt'm-  inating device used it for all it was  worth, until the metropolis was a blaze  with light. The clubs on Pall Mall  were lit up with huge torches and the  staid old street murky buildings was  scarcely recognised around Marlborough House.  The Prince of Wales came to town  yesterday afternoon, aud went to the  opera in the evening. His drive to and  from the performance.was marked by  a tremendous welcome.  The news was wired to the Queen at  Balmoral immediately on its receipt  and the Union Jack was hoisted on the  Royal residences throughout the  ~^"co"u^try^ahd*iliuminations-*occurred'-on  a large scale.  Effigies of Kruger were burned and  innumerable telegrams of congratulations were sent to the Little Field  Marshall who'had made England so  happy.  Lord "Wolsley received the news  while visiting Mr. Henry James at  Rye. He improved the occasion by at-,  tending the local municipal meeting,  and joined in the cablegram to Lord  Roberts. The Rev. Dr. Talmage, who  was shut up in the Mansion House by  the density 6f the crowd after luncheon  with the Lord Mayor, said to a representee of the Associated Press: " t  is the most inspiring, the most wonderful exhibition of enthusiasm I have  ever seen. In some respects it reminds  me of the peace jubilee in Boston, at  the close of the American Civil War.  The Boer cause is lost. They talk of  guerilla warfare.but judging from what  I have learned, it scarcely seems likely  that this will amount to anything."  A DENIAL.  -' To the Editor: The Miner of Tuesday says: "One of the most contemptible things of tlie whole campaign,' if current reports be true, is  tliat a collector of votes, after taking  down the names of those wishing to be  registered, found out the political feelings of the electors and only sent to  Rossland those pronouncedly in favor  of C. H. Mackintosh."  Having been instrumental in placing  over half the names at present on the  list, many of which "otherwise would  not have been there at all, I simply  wish to say that if the above refers to  myself it is absolutely untrue. I did  not take a single name that was not  forwarded to Rossland, a statement  which is easily capable of proof.  R. E. Gosnei.i..  The Martin "push" have issued a  map of the proposed Coast-Kootenay  railway, which is so interesting in its  way that The Times has no objection to  giving it a free write-up. It is very  much after the style of the ordinary  railway imps got up for advertising-  purposes, which overcomes space and  physical obstacles in a remarkable  way and'exaggerates the sinuosities of  opposing lines. The success which  has attended this effort of the premier  in this instance demonstrates beyond  a shadow of doubt that he would make  a first-class booster for a railway system or as a townsite agent.  We have no objection to referring to  a few salient features in the map in  question. Distance and mountain  ranges have been practically eliminated. There are a few sharp curves  in the line, but uot sharper than Joe  has taken so frequently in his own  political route in life. The way is.  actually encumbered with the precious  metals, which would indicate that the  ties will be of silver, the rails of cop-  ger and -.he cars of burnished gold.  The C. P. R. line takes a tremendous  detour and is labelled "scenery" from  end to end. There is a train of cars  extending from Ashcroft to Shuswap.  The artist's idea of proportion was  evidently affected by the influence.of  the Martin-Cnrtis imagination, as each  of the cars is at least 40 miles long.  It was always understood that the  C. P. R. was a wonderful line of railway, and we may reasonably anticipate a rush of travel as soon as the  outside world fully appreciates the  magnitude of some of its undertakings. Even if the Coast-Kootenay  railway is never built, such an advertisement cannot but be of immense  benefit to British Columbia. Wecmight  almost conclude, if we did not know  that Joe. Martin was intensely in,  earnest about the proposed .railway,  that he was in the pay of the C. P. R.;  but we "have it on the best authority  that he has some time since ceased to  draw salary from that corporation.  The advantages of the Coast-Kopte-  nay line are admirably set forth, but  they go to show that, like the proposed  copper refinery, it is intended strangely  enough to .benefit the Coast, for Mr.  Martin says: " This railway will  double the population of Vancouver  and Victoria in three years." It does  not so state, but it is inferred that  Dunsmuir's coke-ovens will do a rushing business. In .order, however, to  allay the fears of the' people of the  interior, "notice" is given that "this  map demonstrates' that the proposed  government railway will pay from the  start and REDUCE THE TAXES  ENORMOUSLY."  Since the project was first announced  a few months ago, it has developed  rapidly into definiteness. Definitetiess  Mr. Curtis says, is one of the strong  points in Martin's policy. The time  table has not yet been published. It  has been delayed for a few days, we be;  lieve owing to some difficulties about  arranging connections with the Great  Northern road at Midway, Rossland,  Nelson and Kuskanook, but all arrangements are expected to be com-  ,p_leie4___X i_lg__i';k of_Juiie, or a few  days later at the outsideT "His~H61ior  Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnest who, it  is understood from Billy, the boy orator, has been trying to resign for two  years, owing to the worry and arduous  duties incident to his ofliee, is to be  conductor on the fast express and will  have his uniform altered and cut down  for the purpose. If little Willy fails to  be elected in North Nanaimo he is to  have charge of the through freight. T  R. E. Mclnnes, private secretary, who  is something of a poet, will have charge  of the advertising literature.  The freight and passenger rates,  however, have been definitely fixed.  Here is the exact schedule, but we do  not know for a certainty that the margin of profit has been sufficiently guaranteed iu order that the taxes will be  reduced enormously:  Vancouver to Greenwood,  freight rates.

I The only objection to the scheme is  I that Joe Martin evidently  intends to  j introduce   cents   into    this    country,  otherwise it would be impossible   to  make change out of $10. for $9.24. The  people of British Columbia will exist  with   a   government  railway   among  them, but they wont.stand eastern coppers. He must revise the tariff or  suffer defeat.  THE   GOVERNMENT    RAILWAY.  The Sunset mine is located in Similkameen district. It is a property with  a large showing of rich copper ore and  is likely to make a big mine. It is  owned by a joint stock company, Hon.  Joseph Martin and Hon. Smith Curtis  being* among the principal shareholders. To develop the mine a large  amount of capital will be required.  In order to secure the capital it must  be demonstrated that there is a ledge  of good values; that the company is  comprised of business men, and that  the mine is likely to be reached by a  railway within a reasonably short time.  The Coast-Kootenay railway is supposed to pass near the Sunset. The  principal shareholders .can say to the  mining market of the world : " We are  the premier and the minister of mines  of the Province of British Columbia;  we stand together as of yore, and we  run the government. We want a jail-  way to the Sunset and the Province  will pay for it. It is rather a wild  scheme, costing anywhere from $15,-  000,000 to $20,000,000, but it will be a  good thing ft.r the Sunset mine and  us." The scheme would / work out  beautifully if it were- not for the people. They are more interested in  saving the credit of the Province than  they are in boosting Martin-Curtis  mi-iing enterprises, and. any Sunset  mine prospectus issued after June 9th  cannot truthfully, proclaim the advantages of being near a railway to bev  built at the expense of the Province.  A gentleman writing under the  nora de plume of "Anglo-Canuck"  sends us for publication a column  letter, in which he uses all the stock-  worn Curtis arguments, dressed up a;  little differently, perhaps, but still the  same much-used and weak arguments.  The columns of The Times are usually  open to communications dealing with  questions of public interest, but our  space is now needed for more important matter than "Anglo-Canuck's"  letter. We believe it is the duty of  every newspaper having the interests  of the Province at heart to do its share  in securing a sound and progressive  government, and consequently we can  offer but little encouragement to those  who are laboring under the impression  that their lengthy communications will  help the cause of Joseph Martin or  Smith Curtis. ,. :  A Monster Devil Fish  Destroying its victim, is a type of  Constipation.
