JOE MARTIN AT CRANBROOK  The Silver Queen. ,.  . The Silver Queen," a well  ,known Lost creek property, was  recently surveyed for a crown  grant. -Some of the finest peacock- copper yet found in the  district, has1 been taken from this  claim.1, ^    ���-       ,<(" >  A' ���report on this . property  made last year conveys the fol:  lowing information: - Tbe ledge  is about four feet ,in width and  nearly*    perpendicular,    with   a  slight dip to the west.    It is free {Canadians  upon   a   regiment  of  on the  walls.. the gangue  con  Arch     I/eitch'    Roasted.���Successful  Meeting.'���Between the'Lines.  , The Martin meeting at Cranbrook was a howling success.  Tlie hall being small a number  of people were unable-tor>get ih.  The speech of Mr. Martin was  'much the same as delivered at  Fernie and'Fort Steele, the only  dfTerence was iu regard to local  matters. t    ,s  Malcolm Mclnnes was called  to the chair and, introduced , Mr.  Martin., Nothing of importance  occurred until Mr. Arch Leitch,  took upon himself- to call Mr.  Martin to account for allowing  himself to be employed by the  Canadian Pacific railway" company. Mr! Martin opened upon  him like  a  ten  gun  battery  of  sists of talc and iron. The trend  is north and south and can be  ' traced a few hundred .-feet. ,The  ore is quartz carrying bornite,  peacock copper, and copper py-  rite carrying a high percentage  of copper, with values in silver  and gold. The country rock is  a soft diorito of a light green  color, with lime schist on rock  adjoining. The" locality is highly mineralized, the noted Dibble  group being in the same belt.  The  development consists  of  an  open  cut and   tunnel  about  thirty feet in length.     Thi.s iun-  ���nel passes through the  apex   of  * nn ore chute  and   is  continuous  into tho ledge.     The face of the  tunnel shows but  little   ore,   but  on the dump there is  aboul   two  tons   of   fine   grade. '   'The   ore  chutes  appear   m    lhe   outcrop  nbove the   tunnel.      Should   the  property    be    developed    by   a  .��haft sunk on tho-ore it is   probable thai a considerable   bornite  or pyrile will he encountered.  A parallel ledge about 2\ feet  wide runs about 130 feet from the  main ledge. The open cut shows  up fairly well with pyrites and  carbonate of copper.  It i.s a property avhich war  rants development, and if the  development is confined to the  ore chutes good result* will  probably be obtained. A small  amount of work will prove the  value of the properly.   ��  Boers. Mr. Martin roasted him  to a finish, and at the close Mr.  Leitch was,the smallest man ,in  the room in feelings.  A large number of people from  Fort Steele were iu  attendance.  ' i  1 After the close; of the meeting  a number of prominent Liberals  met Mr. Martin with ii, view of  bringing out a strictly Martin  my n.  The ^ Situation In the District.  Mr.    Martin   has   held   three  meetings in this district,  he has  sized-np the  situation  and  will  bring out a candidate devoted to  his interest.     But Ave are of the  opinion that-it will be impossible  to elect such a man.     We'admit  that it is too early in  tho day fo  properly  size-up   political -matters,   that  it   is    possible    that  changes will occur,   new  candidates appear, but one  fact,   and  a very important   one  too,   is   if  we have been correctly informed  i.s lhat Mr.  Martin   has  not   the  support or confidence  of  labor.  Tho Labor   party   of   Enst   and  West Kootenay want   the   eight-  hour law as it i.s, and will not admit of any change.  Mr. Mill-tin's referendum policy, reading'between the lines,  is simply the fad. "1 will promise  to   maintain  the  eight-hour  A Most Kindly  Reception  Tendered  to'the Hon. Joseph Maitin  , Wednesday was a day of considerable excitement in Fort  Sleele. the Premier of the Province, Hon. Joseph Martin, was  in town. As Mr. Martin- is the  most talked of man in Canada  today, his prestr.ee caused considerable of a ilurry.  It was rumored early ii; tlie  morning that the regular iraiu  was six hours late, and that he  .would arrive ar ihe j miction ou  a freight train, instead he came  on the regular pa.--enger in company with A. B. Grace, editor  of The Prospector, and .Tudson  Langley, president oi" the Fort  Steele Liberal Association.  He'wasmet at the Junction by  the Hon. 'Thoma.-  Ede. , an  old-  time   politician    of    the    North  West,-and Dr. Watt, an ex-member of. the provincial legislature.  Mr. Martin came into town the  same as any ordinary individual.'  Upon his arrival two guns  preliminary announced that "Fighting Joe" was near, then a salute j  of fifteen guns  echoed   through  the valley, Liberals and 'Conservatives vying with each other to  do,the distinguished' gentleman  honor.     In   the  evening   while  there was  no  pyroteehenic  display,    tho    Fort    Steele    Brass  Brand-    was     on      hand    ''and  discoursed     sweet     music     to  the   large  crowd  assembled   in  front    of     the    Opera    House.  As  Mr.   Martin approached the  Opera   House  the  band  played  "Hail to the Chief". Hon. Thos.  Ede formerly  police   magistrate  of Calgary,-who has s'lrong Con--  servative bproclivities  but_ with  leanings towards the platform of  Mr. Martin.'escorted the "Prom  ier to the  Opera "'House,   which  was crowded to the doors.   ' Dr.  Wait presided as  chairman  and  Mr. Martin was given a respectful hearing.    A large number of  ladies were present to hear  Joe  Martin, the bad. bad man, of the  Semlin-Cotton administration.  Mi'. Martin stated his views in  a  clear  concise   manner.       liis  speech was a repirition   of   that  given at Ferine, the only change  being    in   local subjects.      The  people of South East Kootenay.  as a rule, have fixed ideas  a.s  to  what they require of a candidate  and    will    vote    for   no   other.  There is  only  a  small  element  among the voters who are, waiting for the barrel to be  tapped.  The Martin Meeting.  , Mr. Martin's meeting on  Wednesday evening was well attended and the distinguished speaker  was   given    a   most    respectful  hearing:   there   were   no   interruptions.    Mr. Martin slated his  case in a clear and concise 'man-  i  ner, which carried conviction lo  many. However, his arguments  tyoro in the main those of a professional politician, nothing new-  carry them out, by far the larger  number of them present considered there exact value, and say,  if ho doc-s fulfil these promises  made iu every portion _ of the  Province, it will require an extraordinary session of the legislature to enable him to redeem  all of hi.s pledges.  o,d the meeting on the economy Province. Upon the conclusion  and expenditures of a progres-of Mr. Martin's speech, ' Mr.  sive government Fernie   was   introduced   bv   the  Henry     Kershaw,     sr ,    was (chairman,  pleased to find that   Mr.   Martin  was* not   the   "wicked   and   bad  man that he is represented to be  by the newspapers.  .Tudson Langley,  president  of  Mr. F. M  Medhurst of  Crau-  the Fort Steele Liberal Associa  brook was called  upon  and   he  wa.s adduced. The discussion  for the most part wa.s taken up  with a review of the platform of  Mr. Fernie. and .stated thai a  number of the planks were already embodied iu his (Mr. Martin's). The subject of Oriental  immigration wa.s dwelt upon,   as  made a :'ow pointless remarks,  heaping fulsome flattery- upon  hia chiff. and reiterating this  sentiment. Mr.. Medhurst.-, remarks were in extremely bad  taste. Being an, employee of,  lhe Canadian Pacific railway his  abuse of that corporation was  entirely uncalled for.  It \vas unfortunate at this time  that the subject of tho supre-,  macy of Fort Steele or Cranbrook was brought up. and in  this matter ihe remarks of the  chairman were tactless, and tend-  o  ing to keep alive the subject  which temporarily at least has  been dropped.  The Banquet.  The spacious'"dining room of  the Oriental Hotel was filled  i with the leading'citizens of Fort  Steele. Cranbrook and Kimber  loy. Wednesday, evening, when  Hon. , Joseph' Martin. Premier  of the Province, was entertained at dinner by th'e Liberal Association of Fort Steele.'  The arrangements for the din-  ner  were   perfect,   and  Messrs.  Stewart, aud   Robinson, made a  reputation for themselves by th'e  elegant spread which they made.  Tlie chair was occupied by Dr.  Watt, the secretary'of the  association.-    To' th'e   right   of   the  chairman was seated the Premier J  Mr.'Martin/ancl   to  the left" 'li.  L. T. Galbraitli. and Ii'. A. Beat-  tie of Cranbrook.   , There was a  full representation of  the  bone  and sinew,  and the  intelligence  and wealth of'South' East Kootenay. political parties   wore  represented,    and    irrespective    of  party'all were  pleased  to  have  Mr. Martin with them thai night  ���Dr.  Watt,   the   chairman,   ox-  pressed   the great  pleasure  he  felt in presiding at a banquet  in  honor of Mr. Joseph Martin,  lhe  Premier of the Province of British Columbia.     He. Mr. Martin,  would be able to familiarize himself with Easi Kooteuay. and the  knowledge    he     would     obtain  would  bo  worth   more   than   a  flood  of  correspondents   in    informing him as to the   status   of  this district.  Mr. R. A. Beattie of Cranbrook. in a very clear and precise manner, said:���'Tt' the people of Fort Steele wore true fo  themselves and the district, that  they would be found enrolled under thc\ba oner of ''Fighting Joe"  Martin. As for himself, lie was  a Martin man. and would support no one in the coining election who was not an out Martin  man." ,  S. li. Robb.   roprcsentin  tion, assured Mr. Martin that,  the Liberals of South East  Kootenay w3ro in sympathy with  him and his platform, and they  would be heard from on election  day.   '  Dr. J. H. King, of Cranbrook,  assured , Mr. Martin and  the people'of Fort Steele, that  it was a vory great pleasure for  him to be present at such a gathering.  Thomas Edu closed the addresses for the evening by declaring that Mr. Martinjiad well  earned his reputation as a political tighter, . in Manitoba years  ago. ' ��  The evening closed by singing  "God Save the Queen'".  A vote of thanks was tendered  Messrs. Stewart and Robinson'  for the generous spread" which  will form a. memorable event in  the annals of gastronomy' in this  city.  ,JOE MARTIN AT EERNIE.  the  law if 1 can, if not refer if to the j was thai of Government  owne  Were "Well Pleased.  Dr. R. Reddic.k, of Rossland,  . president of the Caldwell Mines,  Limit ed; J'.., T. Sulli van , Trail,  and A. Campbell' of Winchester,  Ontario;: arrived in town .on  Tuesday and left,on Wednesday,  in compaBy,with'A. T. Caldwell,  est.  people. If they turn it down,  why if i.- the people, not me. Joe  Martin." 'fhe eight-hour law is  on the statutes. Labor men say  thai the Semlin government was  the best for the working man  eve,)' known in Hrilish Columbia.  Mr. Martin was llie direct factor  in turning down the Semlin ,ad-  miustratioi'i.i and he would not  hesitate to turn down the eight-  hour law if it were to his inter-  ship  new  of   railways,  ���ought  I.S   -hi  but   nothing-  forward:    in  fact if would seem that both parlies are somewhat in accord on  these subjects. The speaker has  a convincing manner, and no  doubt iiillueiiced the.minds of a  number. oT people, who have given no special study to' the subjects discussed: Mr. ' Martin  made the usual . aiito-election  pledges, and while many present seriously believe that he will  Vancouver   World,   appealed   to  the Premier,  and  inquired  il   it  were not possible   for   tiini.   Mr.  Martin,   to   make  arrangements  lor a return date at  Fort, Steele.  A.   li.   Grace,   editor of   Tm-:'  Prospector, said that  he  sympathized with the Premier in the  position that he had placed  himself with   the   people.      For   six  vears   he,  Mr.  Grace,   had been  building     rail roads    into    Port  Steele,   and   now   that   the good  people   of   Cranbrook   had   said  that Mr. Grace's north and souih  railway was "llio siiresl thing on  earth'".      It   might   be said that  Joe Martin was building  a, rail-j  way iuto Fort-Steele.'. . I  He   Opens (- the Campaign   In   South  East Kootenay.  Premier, Hon. Joseph Martin,  arrived at Fernie at 4:^0 p.m. on  Tuesday, the glowing tires of  nearly :{()0 coke'oven's in active  operation, was the first to attract  h'i.s attention as he approached  the future *,c&al town of Nortli  America. Mr. Martin had a  good opportunity to, observe the  large number of lies, which have  ;   \ r --'  been 'confiscated by the government, and-which are piled along  the line of railway from' Ward-  ifor to Cranston, also the large  sawmill which has been attached  by due process of law. There  wore but few people at the depot  to welcome the Premier upon  his'arrival.  The skating rink had been  secured as the only place to hold  the Martin meeting. Some ;> to  (100 electors of Fciuio were in  %it tendance to see and hear what  Mr. Martin would have to say,  expecting also some exciting  revelations in respect to the domain now held and owned by the  Crow's Nest Coal Company. ��� In  this respect Mr. Martin disappointed a large* number, his  attack being directed to the late  Semlin government and not the  coal company, even this might  have attributed to personal  matters existing between the  Semlin government and Mr.  Martin.  At s p.m. Mr. Polls, who pro-  sided as chairman, on behalf of  Mi1. Martin, invited anyone present wishing to take part in the  discussion to take a seat on the  platform. Mr. Wm. Fernie and  Mr. Atchkinson of Lethbridge  accepted the invitation.  Mr.   Martin,   on   being   introduced by Mr. Polls, devoted con.  siderablo attention   to   the   platform   expressing  the   views   of  Mr. Fernie. who announces that  lie is in the field a.s a   candidate.  Mr.   Martin   said   he   found that  Mr. Fernio.'s platform  wa.s   very  similar   to   that   put   forward by  the government, differing   in the  fact thai Mr. Fernie  is   opposed  to   the   present   admiiiistraliou.  Mr. Martin referred io the eight  hour law, the Chinese   question,  government  ownership   of   railways, and -the political  situation  received some attention.    Tak  Mr. Fernie opened his remarks by saying: ������Ladies and  gentlemen, Mr. Martin has been  in the habit of making hi.-, liviug  with his mouth, while I have  made mine with my hands. Mr.  Fernie opposed the present Government ou , the following  grounds:  1st.      That   the   Government  has not the support of the press.  ind.      That he  has , not   been  able to secure prominent  public  men to join his Government.  While discussing capital under  a Martin regime, Mr. Fernie was  interrupted by Mr. Martin.' who  said"thatx'lie would  answer   Mr.  Forme's question's at the   linish.'  Mi:    Fernie   claimed' that   Mr.  Martin had told  him  personally  lhat there wa.s nothing to  interfere with   the  title  of  the  land.'  grant,      He also' >aid   that   Mr.  Martin had repealed   the  assertion to Messrs. Cox and Jaffray,  Mr. Fernie also said   that   Martin   had repudiated  agreements  made by his predecessors in   the  government,   and  that   no  man  would risk his capital to develop  the country," which was going to  ruin under the   Martin   govern'  ment.    Mr. Fernie worked   men  under an  eight-hour- lawj   long  before Martin.mentioned it.  and  never asked men tov work-   more  than eight honr��.       \  Mr. Martin  Tx Reply.  Mr. Fernie says  that, J   have  the support of only one paper iu  the Province.     I think that 1 am   ."  safe in   saving  that  more   than''   -  halfclhe newspapers of tho,Prbv-  ince are supporting this Government.    ,The   Vancouver  World,/  Victoria Times,   New Weslmin*'  ster Columbian,'Koolenay, Mail.

Mr.    Fernie:      "You, said    in  your speecli   that   the   Rossland  Miner was a   strong  Opposition  paper.'' -  Mr. Martin: "Ves. thai 'was  at the time the article appeared  lhat I quoted. I cannot, remember the names of all the-,papers  but I am satisfied'that fully one  half of the weekly uud daily papers in this Province, to say the  least are not opposing us.  "1 can say that every member  of my Government are as well  known in their particular districts, as Mr. Fernie i.s known  in this district.*'  A Voice: "{Jow about them  you asked and - who refused to  join your Government."  Mr. Martin: "1 only asked  Mr. Brown, Mr. Gordon'and another gentleman whose name I  with-hold."  A   Voice:      "How   about   Dr.  Watty-  Mr. Martin:    "J   never  asked  Dr   Watl   lo  join   my   Government.

Ai��ril 22. -Continuing their limrch on Friday,  Generals Cherinside and Rundel  came into contact with the JJoers  , near Dowels Dorp al noon. The  fighting- * continued until dark  and was principally carried on  by the artillery, which temporarily silenced two ol* the Boer  guns ' '  The British' guns command tiie  hills for miles arouud. Tlie  Boers are reported to hold strong  positions, but aro probably retiring. The casualities on the  British -side wore slight and  most of them occurred among  iihe Yeomanry and mounted in-;  fan try. The firing was at long  range. None of the, British  troops were killed.  Boshoi', Orange Free State,  April 22.���At midday yesterday  (.Ieneral Methuen':-, field force at  Swartskopfontein was ordered to  rtjturn to Boshof. Its convoy extended over six miles. The es-  corts took up a position on a hill  commanding tlie road, just in  the nick of time. a.-> a force of  , 2,000 Boers with l wo'guns and a  Pompon suddenly appeared in  tlis vicinity and opened a very  heavy fire.   '  The British however held them  jn check' until the column reach-  ed a point,of safely,   when' they  ' -retired.    The British had several  casualities.     The  Boers fought  determinedly,,   and    must   have  suffered   considerable    loss,    as j,  they  once  advanced   to   within  ' ;J00 yiirdsof the hill, 'whence  a  concealed    detachment    of    the  British opened fire on theinv  ,'Elandsla'agle,     April ' i'i'.���A  foniniando of   1000 Boers came  through "Weasel's Nek this morn-  ' ing.       They" crossed   Sundav's  nbriclyu and-advanced io the crest  -of a ridge,   but fell   Back  when  they saw the mounted  infantry,  ���who opened fire.   , '  ,   Later     the      Boers      shelled  ' Elandslaagte colliery.

The naval brigade on   tlie1 right-  sent a few shells in lhe direction  of the Boer  guns,-which  were  posted  on   a -Jong   ridge , 4000  'yards to the fright of the bridge.  They were difficult to locate but  lhe Moors   wore  soon   seen  retreating  over  the   hill   towards  Westers Nek.     Several   of the  shells   caught   them   and   must  have done some damage.  , i  i  On the left a squadron   of' Af-  ,   ric.an   Horse   were  engaged'  all  <tla,y   in   exchanging   shots   wilh  the Boers.      No  casualities  ure  reported.  Late, in1 Ihe, day   the    Boers  showed activity in  the  trenches  on the ridges in front of lOhuids-  gaate.      A   few   1-7   inch   shells  ��� forced lhem .to  relinguisli   their  work.    This   position   was  only  1,800 yards distant from  Rlands-  laagte.

meeting,   and   when  he arrived
found another chairman   presiding.    It wa.s asserted that an attempt was being made  to' pack
the' meeting in the interest  of a
certain ward politician \yho  had
been sat down upon at a previous
meeting: one who  had changed
his colors during the past niontli
.and said to be  now  working  in
th'e intereist of Joe Martin.
Both factions  tried  fo secure
control of the meeting,  neither
side succeeding, one of tlie most
persistent  workers' .singing  the
old refrain, "AYhen John Brown
Comes- March'ing - Along",   shutting out his opponents.  A stormy
time ensued, there was" a  rough
house for some  thirty'minutes,
