C. 1  The last meeting of the campaign to  be held by the Hon. Smith Curtis, in  behalf of the government, in I'hoenix,  was held Thursday night at Miners'  Union hall, which, as usual, was crowded, there being also a number of ladies  present.  Chairman Delahay opened the meeting with a few remarks, and introduced  Christopher Foley, of Rossland, who  came in place of Mr. Devine, who  was unable to be present. Mr, Foley  spoke for nearly an hour, giving his  version of the origin of the eight-hour  law and other issues. He asserted that  Mr. Mackintosh, from his own statements made before becoming a candidate, was in favor of doing away with  the penalty clause of the act and thus  practically nullifying the effect of the  eight-hour law. On the other hand he  quoted Mr. Curtis as being earnestly in  favor of it long before he was called  to take a cabinet position and before  he had any thought of becoming a candidate for the legislative assembly.  He severely criticised Mr. Mackintosh  in a number of other matters, and  appealed to the workingmen to support  Mr. Curtis at the polls, if they wished  to vote for their own best interests.  Mr. Foley also took up Mayor Good-  eve, of Rossland, who has been speaking for Mr. Mackintosh, and handled  him without gloves. He stated that  Mr. Goodeve declined to sign the  petition to the legislative assembly to  keep the eight-hour act intact on the  statute books, and that he was also one  of the first business men in Rossland  to sign an agreement that, in case of a  general shut down, they should refuse  to give credit to miners in that town.  He complimented Mr. Goodeve for his  ability as a platform speaker, but scored him severely for the stand he had  taken with regard to workingmen and  their interests. He referred several  times to the stand taken by the "little  sheet"���meaning the Times���published in Greenwood.  Duncan Ross, of Greenwood had  been invited to be present but failed  to appear. The chairman then called  for any one in the audience who wished  to speak in opposition to come to the  platform, but there were no volunteers.  Speech of Mr. Curtis.  The chairman introduced the Hon.  Smith Curtis as the last speaker of the  evening, who talked something over an  hour, being greeted with great applause  when he arose.  Mr. Curtis began by referring to  some personalities that had been used  in this campaign, and disclaimed having started this except when criticising  acts of his opponent of a public character. He spoke of the Sunset mine  deal, in which he, Mr. Mackintosh,  R. A. Brown and the premier were  mixed up, and read a letter in regard  to it, which he said was signed by Mr.  Mackintosh.  The minister of mines also paid the  opjxisition press of this riding some  left handed compliment.^, mentioning  particularly the Rossland Miner, Grand  Forks Gazette, Greenwood Times and  Columbia Review, which papers he  claimed had been systematically misrepresenting his meetings. It having  been asserted that he was travelling on  a C.P.R. pass, Mr, Curtis said that  one had been offered him, but he had  declined it and was paying his fare  like any other man.  Mr. Curtis then went over the issues  of the campaign rapidly, taking up the  Oriental question, railway, smelter,  financial and other planks of the government platform. He referred to E.  V. Bodwell and told something about  that gentleman and his connection with  the Turnerites, from his standpoint.  He closed by paying a high tribute to  the dominion premier, Sir Wilfred  Laurier, the leader of the liberals. The  gathering closed with three cheers.  TRAIN LOAD OF ORE  Political Pointers.  Phoenix has been flooded with campaign literature this week.  On the revised and corrected voters'  list of Rossland riding there are. now  3919 names.  Mr. Curtis spoke in Greenwood  Wednesday night to a crowded house,  and in Gladstone last night  The Mackintosh committee have  opened headquarters over the post-  office, with A. G. Simpson.in   charge.  It is not expected that either of the  candidates will appear in I'hoenix  again this campaign, though this program is subject to change.  The l'ioneer is the only paper in the  riding that has given both sides a fair  hearing in its news columns. The  Pioneer is, first of all, a newspaper.  Mr. Mackintosh's supporters are  claiming every town in the riding.  The Curtis men are not doing so much  claiming, but are steadily sawing wood,  confident of the result.  The following are the officially  designated polling places in this riding:  Rossland, Trail, Greenwood, Grand  Forks. Midway, Cascade, Gladstone,  Columbia, Eholt and Phoenix.

Happened by Premature Blast Near Okanogan  Falls.  Last Monday W. T. Hilfand Walter  S. Raynor got caught in a premature  blast in a prospect they were working  near Okanagan Falls. Hill had a'leg  broken and his head crushed, but  hopes are had for his recovery. Raynor  was so badly hurt that he died shortly  alter; Dr. Wliite, of Camp McKinney  was promptly summoned.  Raynor Mas well known in Phoenix,  being vice-president ofthe Carpenters'  and Joiners' Union, having worked  here all winter. He was a young unmarried man of 30 or 35 years. He  lived and worked in Kuskonook in  Crow's Nest construction days, then  in Brooklyn, later in Cascade, where  he did contracting with Mr. Hill, and  lor several months has resided in  Phoenix. Father Pat looked after  the funeral of Mr. Raynor. He went  to Okanagan Falls about a month a  ago.  Clmeron Court I. 0. F.

R.  Last Sunday,the first train  ore from the  mines  around  was sent out, its destination  Trail smelter. It consisted of  one from the Athelstan, one  Winnipeg  and two from   th  Crown, the latter of which may 1'  considered   as   one   of   the   r<  shippers.  The Athelstan ore was hauled  wagons to the Golden Crown spur and  thence loaded into box cars, the only  kind provided thus far by the C. P. R.  The Winnipeg ore was taken from the  railway cut and this was also put on  the cars at the Golden Crown, as the  Winnipeg spur has not yet been put in.  The Golden Crown shipment of course  came from the ore bunkers of that  mine, which are kept full all the time.  Still Pumping Out Winnipeg.  The pumps are still going at the  Winnipeg to clear the workings of the  mine of the water which accumulated  during the recent suspension of operations, and it will probably require at  least another week to get it all out.  In the meantime Foreman Ox Icy has  put a force of men at work on the outside, where the railway cut a ledge of  rich ore. One car of this was shipped  this week, and at least six or seven  more cars are now piled up and ready  for sending to the smelter.  Hartford Has 17 Feet of Ore.  At the Hartford, on the 100 foot  level, the drift isnow in 75 feet. About  50 feet from the mouth of the drift a  crosscut was started, and has gone  through 1 7 feet of excellent ore.  It is said that the second -payment  on the $35,000 bond on the Hartford,  amounting to $12,500 will be due  June 15th, and the property is looking  so well under the development already  done, that it will doubtless be promptly  met. Wm. Farwell, of Sherbrooke,  Que., general manager of the Eastern  Townships Rank, is understood to be  largely interested in the Hartford  group.  In Boundary Mines.  The east drift of the War Eagle, at  the 100-foot level, is now in over 65  feet.  Two men who have been working  on the Oro Denoro of late, have quit  and the property is now closed down  tight.  The new machinery at the B. C.  mine is running; but the new cage did  not fit, and another was sent for to  Montreal.  W. J. Porter, manager of the Golden  Crown mine made a trip to the Trail  smelter this week, where he is having  the ore of that property treated for the  present.  R. H. Hutchins, superintendent of  the Mother Lode, in Deadwood camp,  with his three ncices, the Misses Mof-  fatt, spent last  Sunday, with   his  old  friend, J. H. Trevurrow, in  charge of  the Snowshoe.  Nick Tregear, the well known ex-  superintendent of the Le Roi mine,  when Col. I. N. Peyton was manager,  who has been looking at some Sumpter  Oregon, mines lately, visited the Winnipeg this week.  The new iron cage in the No. 2  shaft of the Old Ironsides was placed  in" position this week, and is now running satisfactorily. June 22d is the  date set for the shipment of the new  io-drill air compressor for the Knob  Hill.  The Quebec Copper company, recently organized by Andrew J-aidlaw,  of Spokane, has purchased E. C.  Brown's three-eighths interest in the  Marguerite claim in Deadwood camp.  The figure is unobtainable, but is said  to be around $4,000.  Last Sunday's carload shipment was  the first one sent to the smelter from  the Athelstan mine.    This ore was all  ken out in developing, no stoping  Jiaving yet  been   done.   Three shifts  e at work drifting either way   on the  d, from where it was cut between  the two 5o-foot shafts.  Nothing new has transpired in regard to the starting up of work on the  Dominion Copper Co.'s properties, the  Brooklyn, Stemwinder, etc., but word  is expected almost any day for the expected work to resume. When this is  done, every prominent property in  Phoenix camp will then be working in  full force.  SNOWSHOEALLRICHT  Managing Director McMillan  Visits The Property.

Johannesburg Also Captured by General Roberts' Army.  Last Wednesday the news came  that Lord Roberts, who has been pressing and crifflyg the Boers in the Transvaal, had sawered Johannesburg with  the victorious British army. The same  night the wires flashed around the  globe futher tidings that "Bobs" had  also taken Pretoria, the capital of the  Transvaal, and the seat of government  of President Kruger. The latter fled  with the lew who still adhered to his  cause. Lord Roberts was unopposed  on his entrance to the Boer capital,  city officials being appointed to receive  him.      ���  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,  from whence a guerilla warfare is expected to be conducted.  Throughout Canada and the empire  there has been universal rejoicing over  the practical ending of the Boer war  by the capture of their chief town. In  the Boundary country Grand F'orks  and Greenwood, were particularly demonstrative; all business being suspended for the time being.  e��.  ��j  ON THE J6  Fourth of July Mineral Claim, ?|  Being part of the Old Ironsides Sub-division, Phoenix, are now  offered for   sale   by��^  the Granby Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company, Limited. %  00000 9a  These lots are the choicest residence sites JJ  Jt in Phoenix, being located on the north slope, j+  JJwith exposure to the south.

At the annual meeting of the British  Columbia (Rossland and Slocan) syndicate, Ltd., owners of the Snowshoe  mine, held in London on April 24th,  Mr. Geo. S. Waterlow, J. P. 1). I.., the  chairman of the syndicate (who is wel  known in Rossland,) referred to Canadian loyalty in connection with the  South African war, in the following  words: "I might perhaps here, for the  moment, dwell upon the grand loyalty  shown by our Canadian brethren, of  which the inhabitants of Rossland  were the foremost to volunteer to lay  down their interests and their lives, in  upholding the Imperial destinies of  their mother country in a land so far  off from them as South Africa, and  with tbis syndicate it presses closely  home, as our own lawyer, Mr. Hart-  McHarg, of the firm of Abbott & Mc-  Harg of Rossland, is now at the front  with the Canadian contingent, and has  written many interesting letters as to  the hardships that he has gone through  Anthony J. McMillan, managing  director of the Rossland and Slocan  (B. C) Syndicate, Ltd., owners of the  Snowshoe mine, spent several days at  the property this week, being his first  visit since last fall. Mr. . McMillan  went to England last December, and  while he was away, the balance of $37,-  800 on the $70,000 bond came due and  was promptly paid, April 1, 1900, as  will be remembered by readers of the'  Pioneer.  While Mr. McMillan has been absent in the old country, the development on the Snowshoe has been  steadily prosecuted under the efficient  stqjerintendence of James H. Trevor-  row without interruption, until at present the mine has had about 1400 feet  of all kinds of work done. Mr. McMillan was not a little pleased at the  evident improvement in the appearance  of the mine, where several new ore  bodies have been opened up.  The new tunnel started below the  railway spur is now in over 250 feet,  and for the last 80 feet the workmen  have been entirely in ore. On the  200-foot level the east and west crosscuts from the south drift have also  opened up large bodies of excellent  chalcopyrite. A drift is now being run  from the 100-foot level, and this will  be connected with the surface by a  raise and also connected with the 200-  foot level in the ore body, giving good  ventilation.  Large  Boiler Soon.  It has been decided by the management to increase the boiler capacity of  the Snowshoe from 40 to 70 horse  power. Specifications have been prepared and the several mining machinery makers are ' now figuring on the  new and larger boiler to be installed at  an early date. This will give all the  power needed to supply the compressor  and run the Cameron pumps and also  the hoist.  By the recent development the value  of the mine has been largely increased,  and it will be developed into a steady  shipper at as early a date as is possible. Tests are to be made of the ore,  to determine the best way of handling  it, and it is among the strong probabilities that the mine will be supplied with  its own reduction works. The syndicate owning the Snowshoe is wealthy,  and its members are prepared to spend  all the money necessary to make it one  of the greatest mines in the Boundary.  No stock is for sale, and the mine is to  be systematically developed. George  S. Waterlow, of London, Eng., one of  the heavy owners, will visit Phoenix  some time this summer; at that time a  decision as to treatmnnt will be arrived  at. In the meantime Mr. Trevorrow  has instructions to put on all the men  he can use to advantage.  Gold Drop Will Ship.  Manager Easton, of the Gold Drop  mine, is making arrangements to ship  two cars of ore to the Trail smelter.  It will probably be sent out in a few-  days.  Just at present a good deal of dead  work is being done on the Gold Drop  in the shape of raises and air shafts.  No. 3 tunnel has now been driven  over 600 feet and is the longest on  the property.  Old Maids' Convention.  Thursday, June 14th, has been selected as the date ot the concert and  farce, the latter entitled, " '.'he Old  Maid' Convention," which will be given  by the Ladies Aid of the Presbyterian  with the other Imperial uirrtR' on ���tin j .|'ulrc|,.

On the'other hand, .there is also  no  probability of the provincial party or the  conservatives having a majority of the  38 seats in t>|e next legislative  assembly.    The consequence   undoubtedly  will   be  that a'combination   will.be  lo'rmed by the successful candidates to  carry  ori. the ' government.

Last Saturday was nomination day,  but no-straight labor candidate, was  jKit in the field in this riding,' as had  been.predicted in some quarters. The  contest is simply between Messrs.

This is doubtless  du*'in large measure to his unequalled  Mr. James Dunsnmir, who is seeking election for South Nanaimo, has,  it is stated, gone so far as to .promise  to replace his Chinese underground  colliery workers by white men, so soon  as he can get a siif��cient number of  the latter.

Questions for Consideration.  electors of Rossland Riding': ^  U Rossland tecently I endeavored  ankly state my, views upon various  tions; affecting' the miners and  Ikirigmen generally, and quoted the  %ch of the president of the Trades  ll^bor-unions of the dominion,  j^Ralph Smith, in New Westminster,  )f|>rovc that I was strictly correct when  SjiSdemning the two-faced policy of  ftp��5rs. Martin and Curtis.  Ralph Smith said: "I consider if Mr. Joseph"  artilt liad been prepared to carry out tlie broncl  fnciples he snld he was, he never should lmve  [|d himseirnlth the Turner party todefcat the  ilribution hill. The next point is the relief  was sought to he given to the conl miners of  :ouver Island. What did Sir. Martin do ? He  lined with the corporation of the Ounsinuirs  :feat a measure lo relieve the condition of  ;s for the coal miners."  lectors: Mr. Martin not only voted  list theSemlin government in order  [ain power, but by so doing, prevent-  ii redistribution   of seats,   thereby  iriving  this  great   district of one  iiber���the proposed bill giving Ross-  anuY-lYaiLone-..member  and   the  indarj'icotiiitry another���two large  iing cehtresSvhose interests  would  e been doiibty.protected.       - '  low is the question of Asiatic labor  e effectively, dealt with ?   We must  il not only with   Chinese and Japa-  jle who are still in China nnd Japan,  j|also with theChineseand Japanese  pb are now in British Columbia coming against white industry.  Ihi'st���By    introducing    the   Coal  fries regulation bill which will empty  I coal mines of Oriental labor.  -jSecond���-By enacting a measure  to  |ke it compulsory ti])on all contractors  I government work   and work  sub-  |tzed by the government to adopt the  fhdard wage for labor.,  ^lectors: Constant ��� a'gitation    with  ��rence to  Japanese   restriction can-  I but retard the progress  and   pros  fity  of British  Columbia.    If dis-  owed acts are re-enacted session after  To the Electors, Rossland Riding, West Kootenay. '  Mlcctors: I am a candidate for the provincial  legislature at the approaching elections, and i  favor the following policy: , .  1. An administration composed of those u-ltose  practical experience -will'- enable them to deal  promptly aud efficiently with all details connected with thedepartmeuts over which they preside.  2. Sanctioning no large expenditures other  thau really necessary, until the ability ��,r the  province to hear such Is clearly ascertained.  This should not apply to bridges, trails and roads  in newly discovered mining camps.  3. Preparation of fiill,authentic and siibsslan-  tl.-.l financial statements ofthe province, together  with land and lorest areas ami their probable  vnhies.  A.,. Convinced of the wisdom of assisting, railroad coiistriielioii as proved by the experience of  other provinces, 1 would favor a system of bonuses, surrounded by reasonable checks and nafe-  guards. Without feeders to the main lines, the  settlement in the interior must naturally be retarded, the coast cities being deprived of mnny  supply advantages, acciuing from coIonliaUoii,  Immigration and internal improvements. At  the preaent juncture no thinking man would  commit himself to lusnap decision iu connection  with the subject of government ownership of  railways. 11 is plausible, but I would be unwilling to bind the province to such a gigantic proposition involving many complex issues, until  convinced that the resources of riritlsh 'Columbia  justify such an experiment.  5. The erection and maintenance of a leclini.  cal school of mines.  ii. Amendments to the miuiui; law, perfecting  the existing system of mine inspection, thus  making it effective, and of greater public advantage. Hurthcrmore, legislation bearing ii|ioii  placer claims, claim jumping and assessment  w;ork; relieving as much as possible the prospector from protracted litigation and consequent  legal complications.  . 7. Preparation of carefully compiled mnps,  showing trail, water and railway routes travcrs-  ing mining districts, together with such official  Information as would assist those engaged iu  exploratory work, '  S. Formulating o policy which would assure to  llritish Columbia a foremost place in Oreat llrit-  ain, thus securing the province prominence commensurate with its resource:!.  9. Destroying as far as possible all germs 'of  discontent and consequent bitterness, by dealing  with public works irrespective of locality or  political affiliation.  .10. Development of; farming, dairying, stock  raising and fruit growing resources by increased  encouragement to agricultural societies, when by  such assistance it may be. demonstrated that  reasonable benefits wiil accrue to the province'.  ' 11. Increasing the usefulness of a bureau of  labor.nnd mining statistics by the appointment  of a competent official, whose sen-ices could' be  utilized in harmonizing conflicting interest! and  arbitrating upon issues threatening 'to disturb  the iieace and progress of any'community.   .-  n. Ministers of the Crowii and their officials  being stewards acting for the public, I would insist upon due expedition in the issue of crown  patents, and prompt departmental settlement of  disputed claims, thetaxes paid by unincorporated  settlements to be devoted, as far as possible, towards assisting the taxpayiug district.  13. Careful consideration ofthe rearrangement  of various constituencies, removing if possible  the question from the political areun,..by such  legislation as under the circumstances, may be  deemed advisable; due care lieing taken to secure  to'outlying districts, as well as rapidly increasing towns,just -representation.  14. To deal with vurioui labor, questions on  rationnl lines, favoring no hasty legislation, but  consulting oil interests likely to be' affected.  The result of recent mediation, particulraly Iu  Rossland, is an object lesson, conclusively proving  that all parties arc-willing to settle vtx.-d questions upon abroad and therefore practical basis.  ;r- JS:. ltl tlie.prcsent.cainpaijju I sec no nccessity  for alliance with;-nor .hostility toward," federal  authority, nor am I willing to commit myself or  those who support me to an unreserve.! pledge iu  favor of measures 'propounded by the present  leader of the government or others who have  announced themselves ns leaders. Some of the.  measuresadvocatedniust commend themselves  to the electors; but I pcrfer reserving to myself the  right to judge the men behind the measures, for  these will tie called upon to crystallize them into  legislation and Kivedepaitmeutal Hf-vt to 1vl1.1t |  they pu.fes< to believe in.  16.   Instilling   into the   minds   <f  llie  generation Instincts of foully lo the province and j  loyalty to the llritish empire, :u:il to eounut-mor-j  ate the deeds of those who have surrendered their j  lives iu defense cf that empire, a�� "ill us those  who nre now fighting its battles.    With  thii intent, 1 would udvocnte sueli legislation :is would  make statutory provisions for the Houling of the  llritish flag,during the hours ol'tuition, over all  schools throughout the province.
