" A T. Caldwell is still down at  the. Old Abe.' What is,to be  done with the property has not  yet been ascertained.

A large amount of assessment  ���work i.s being done on claims on  tlie St. Mary's and its tributaries.  Work has been temporarily  suspended on the Black Bear.  On Wild Horse.  There   is    more    activity   on  "Wild Horse this season than   for  .several years past, many of  the  placers are in active operation,  ii.nd quartz mining  is  being  extensively  carried   on.

The new   galena   proposition recently located by Felix  Jvook   is   showing   up   well with  fhe, little work   which   has   been  /lone.       Over   the   divide    from  IJonlder   creelc   a    tributary   of  Wild Horse work is   being  done  on the claims known as the Star  * Group.

Vancouver, June 0.���An  hide-  pendent labor mass meeting was  held tonight, when all labor candidates    .-spoke,     also    Premier  Martin,     Chas   Wilson,   Cartel,  Cotton and .Ralph Smith.   It was  an     unusually    noisy   meeting,  with hoofing and hisses from beginning to end, and no oue. was  heard     without    interruptions.'  Cotton    in   deploring   what', he  termed a   plague of Martinism,  said, lhat it, not only  caused  a  good government to be defeated  and dissolution of tho house, but  had seriously affected the  honor  of the Lieutenant Governor.   He  stigmatised  the  Minister,   as  a  one'  man   govern ment   with   a  cabinet of clerks.    Ralph Smith  made a semi.private' declaration  tonight after  the  meeting  that  he had been approached  by Mr.  Geo.    Kennedy*   on     behalf    of  Martin, proffering him a seat  in  the cabinet, in the event  of  his  accepting    tlie   offer,   the    suit  against the new Vancouver Coal  Co.' would be dropped immediately and the company given a good  title-to. fhe   property. ' While  .these facts have been surmised  to some'extent already,   if  only  needed 'this  unequivocal   statement of Smiths to  make  patent  the methods  of  Martin ��,to  construct a" cabinet and hold power.1  ���    Smith has an  affidavit signed  by fifteen witnesses to the above,  effect and  will    publish   it   tomorrow.       ,      v n  Victoria, June G. ���When Perry  Mills and Jardine were leaving  the Metctiosin meeting last  night, their buggy was covered all over with rotten eggs by  those present. The meeting  was boisterous, Mr. Bizautson,  the Martin candidate, several  times offering to go outside and  thrash- the most noisy of lhe  ones interrupting.  Boers    Concentrating-   Twelve   Miles  East of Pretoria.���Boers Will  Occupy Majuba Ilill and  Other Points.  London, June 7.���Lord Roberts is resting his tired troops  in Pretoria and collecting supplies prirr to his advance  against the Boers new capital at  Lydenburg. Delayed dispatches  state that General Botha made  no serious attempt to hold Pretoria, but fought a rear-gnurd i  action to gain time for hi.s retreat.  The Duke of Norfolk is report  ed  injured  in   the  fight   before  Pretoria.  Among the captured 121th Yeomanry are'.several noblemen.  London, June 7.���According  to dispalches received today tlie  Boers under General Botha are  concentrating in the neighborhood of Hatherly. twelve miles  east of Pretoria. From the same  source it is learned that the  British prisoners are being removed to Novitgedac. an unhealthy spot in the  Elands   val-  ley-      ' ,- y   .   '  The strained relations between  the secretary of war Lord Lans-  downe, - and the British coin-  mander-in chief, Lord Wolsely,  appears to have reached such a  straight thai but for the exigen-.  cies of .the situation, Lord Wolsely would have re'signed. It  seems that Lord Lansdowne attempt ed to usurp authori \y always  heretofore wielded by the commander-in-chief, and the latter  is  now  said  to   have  laid    the  I whole matter before Lord Saiis-  [ bury.  j Loudon, June 7.���A Boer re-  [ port says that General Buller  ! has requested a three day's armistice. The military experts here  are inclined to believe that a revised version of the story will  show that Buller has summoned  the federals to surrender or  evacuate their position in three  day-., failing which he would attack them.

AT     FORT  Called    in    the   Interest    of   E.    C  Smith.���It Turns Out to Be for  William. Fernie.  The meeting un Friday evening was evidently intended for  the supporters of Mr. E. C.  Smith, the Martin candidate: so  said the notices that called the  meeting, which, by the way  were not circulated until late in  the aftcrnoou, possibly for reasons best known to Smith's committee.  There was a large audience  present, and as usual thejj chair-  essary loss of life on both sides  At Tobacco Plains.  The Queen's birthday was celebrated by a picnic given by the  school trustees to the children  of the public school.

The Rt: Rev.:. Dr. Dart Lord  Bishop of Kootenay will arrive  in. Fort Steele today and be the  guest of the Rev. and Mrs. Pror  'cunier at the vicarage. He will  conduct the morning; service at  [���' St- John's Church on Sunday at  11 a,.in. and preach  the sermon  The Fernie Meeting'.  A meeting called in -the interests of Mr. Fernie was held in  Fernie on Monday evening last.  It was presided over by Mr.  Fernie.  The speakers were Messrs.  Smith, Fernie. Harvey and Ross.  The hall was crowded although  no notices of the meeting were  circulated until -1 o'clock.  Mr. Smith stated his case in a  clear and more forcible manner  (han ho has yet done in this campaign. Mr. Fernie spoke for  thirty minutes. He was logical  and evidently had his audience  with him. Mr. Kerr of Phoenix  added nothing lo what he said at  Fort Steele on Friday evening  of last week, and did not once  allude lo the Mackintosh letter,  ���nor did he speak from a text.  Mr.. Harvey captured the ������meeting* at,"once and. gave cogent  reasons Avhy Smith a,'nd Martin  should be defeated, he was frequently' in terrupted , wi th prolonged applause. The impression is gaining ground that  Fernie will roll up a big  major-;  Ouring the  service  he  will  ad- |ity for its home candidate.  His Nibs Fighting Joe.  To   all   well-wishers    of    the  Kootenay district, the  assurance  which is   every   day   becoming  more marked, that  utter defeat  awaits  the  plans  of   fhe   Hon.  Joseph Martin on the 9th of June  cannot fail to be most gratifying.  .   Everywhere now his insidious  and discreditable methods of operation   are   being    recognized,  and with the unmasking  of  thc  man,-   and   the exposure  of  his  mean ambitions, to serve  which  ho would not hesitate to ruin tho  country, those who, at the opening of thc campaign,   professed,  if not .friendship   for  his  cause,  af least admiration for his courage, now  only  express  disgust  af his callous effrontery.  The miners of' the Boundary  country are already pronouncing  in favor of Governor Mackintosh, and we expect any day lo  hear that the great majority of  the working miners in the Rossland camp are in opposition to  Fighting Joe and his lieutenant,  Mr. Smith Curtis. The more they  consider the matter tho more,  wc are certain, they will conclude that it is to their highest  interest that the present government should be defeated, and  that the' candidate of good- legislation in this riding sho.uld be  sent to the.-House of Assembly.  ���Rossland Miner.  S.mitli:C.urti.s said, last night  that he wbre unquestioningly  following the leadership of.Toe  Martin. What is that the good  book says about tlie blind lead;  ing the blind  and' both  eventu  ally  falling  into   the   sewer'/���  Grand Forks Gazette.'  Joe Martin has been telling the  voters of Vancouver island that  he is; the architect of his own  political fortunes. He may be,  but he'll fail-to get a building  permit on the 9th of June.���The  Pioneer.  Tn a speech at Victoria Minister of Finance. J. C. Brown said:  "And up in tho upper" country,  judging by the reports, he could  say tho mountains of Kootenay  were vocal with the name of  Martin." Has anybody heard  thc mountains groan��� lately?���  Trail Creek News.  If elected what inJIuence can  Mr. Smith wield at Victoria  Should he be in the Opposition  or if his chief is returned to  power he must support every  Goveniment measure so far a.s  carrying out tho radical legislation outlined by Mr. Martin.  If you wish capital to come  into the country vote for Fernie.  A.s a representative from the  constituency Mr. Fernie will  Have infinitely more influence  than his opponent. He knows  lhe needs of the district and will  see foil, lhat Easl Kootenay is  not overlooked in-the .appropriations for roads and frails.  A 7thin-skinned mail should  never enter   polities.      If  lie  is  afraid of criticism the best plan  is not to invite it.  A. man never knows what a  disreputable character lie is until fie enters politics.  Vote for Wm. Fernie?  man, Henry Kershaw, took advantage of the occasion to open  his mouth and advertise Thk  Phosimoctok. After boring the  audience for about fifteen min-  ���utes, he introduced the ' -'Silent  Candidale". who made a few remarks. ��� "'  -Mr. William Fernie was then  called upon, and who stated his  position-in the campaign in a  forcible- and 'logical manner.'  After speaking the ul lotted time  he was called down ' and Mr.'  Kershaw again arose, bored the  audience for five minutes more,  and'then introduced the orator  of the evening.  ��� Mr. Kerr  commenced' his   remarks by, referring to the chairman  as  the "Ministerial Chairman", which caused a ripple ,of  laughter   throughout   fhe   audience.    Mr.   Kerr said he would,  in'; deference  fo   tlie   chairman,  speak from a text,  and   Ihcn   he  sailed in and spoke lor  over  an  hour in defence'.of  .Toe   Martin,  aiid   attempted" to  impress  the  idea that he was a "white-robed  angel", a friend to the-,, laboring  man a foe  to' corporal ions."the  greatest   railway    builder''   the  Province has 'ever seen,   and  a  lot of other truck which "Eight-  Day ��� Joe"    and    "Gramaphone  Baxter" had already, 'regalefl   to  the Fort Steele people.    Ho wa.s  listened   to   with   attention  and  given a most respectful hearing.  , After   he' concluded   his   remarks   the   chairman   asked   if  anyone in   the  audience   wished  to  ask  any  questions   for' Mr.  Kerr to answer      In reply there  were loud, calls for  Mr.   J.   A.  Harvey, and they were continued  loud and strong until -Mr. 'Harvey ascended the platform and iu  a   short time in-proper language  demolished 'the  .situation    that  Mr. Kerr had so  carefully*  constructed, and   had  the audience  with   him.     Mr.   Smith    looked  anxious. Mr. Kerr moved uneasily in his seat, and Mr. Kershaw  appeared as if he was sifting on  needles.      They   consul:ed ��� together and finally  called   time,  saying that Mr. Harvey  had  already  "spoken   thirty   minutes,  while in fact he had only spoken  twenty minutes.     The chairman  tried lo speak but the  audience  did uot want to hear him.      Mr.  Harvey went on and finished his  remarks amid loud'and prolonged applause.  The chairman again arose and  irieel to speak, but the audience  was -Ag'in the Goverumenl"  and the chairman, and drowned  his voice in loud cries for W. li.  K'oss. The chairman fried fo  quell 'the tumult but without  avail. When there wa.s a lull lie  would open ni.s mouth to speak,  .when lie would be shut up. and  the demand .for Ross.'continued.  This, wa.s /kept up for fully lil'.-,  teen 'minutes'. By (Jiis time if.  was clearly f,o- be- seen that it  was a. Fernie meeting.: and, the  chairman so recognized if, "and  allowed Mr. Ross to be heard'  Mr. Ross gave the Government'  soi'ne hard knocks.     He sueri'-esl,  lhat Mi-. Kerr should make himself inoiv fully acquainted   with  Joe Martin's history  in  Manitoba.    He referred to Martin's con--  nection with the  "Yellow   Dog"  Grits in   Manitoba,   to   Martin's  exploits    in    British    Columbia  where ho was posing as  '-Eight-  Hour Joe".    He finished by say  ing that from now until June Otli  he would be known as   ��� -Eight-  Day Joe"',   after  that  his   name',  would be "Dennis".  Mr. Kerr again arose and made  an attempt to refute some of the  Opposition arguments which had  been presented. He wa.s called  flown by Mr. Harvev. aud finally  abandoned an unequal contest.  The chairman, seeming afraid  that ��� some other Opposition  speaker might come to the front  quickly commenced io sinir God ���  Save the Queen, and the'-audience  dispersed satisfied that it 'was  the best Fernie meeting yet held  in Fort Steele'.  'Notes of tlie Meeting-.  Mr.,Kerr is a pleasant gentleman but a novice in.politics. ���  The people of Fort' Steele are  tired of Henry Kershaw, who ,  gels above the duties of chairman to make a few remarks on  his own account.       "  Kershaw has done more injury  to the Smith -cause than any  othor man in the 0 district. He  says that he has had experience  as a chairman but does noi state  where.

He has promised the Steele people that if elected ho would -be  pleased to identify himself to  t.Jicir interests. A.s "tho matter  stands, it is Cranbrook, Iirst. hist  :in<d always.  ft i.s,hi.uli-water for J'oe Alar-  tin at present, though the tide  is slowly ebbing; on today the  tide is out and so is Joe Martin.  ^Politics are red' hot, in South  Jilast Kootenay. At Cranbrook  Costigan called Baxter, who  represents E.  C.   Smith,  a liar.  E. C. Smith has a -new gramaphone. The first one he had  became rattled at Cranbrook.  The new one, a Mr. Kerr of  Phounix, run into a Fort Steele  cyclone on Friday.  Kootenay i/ii. lint-r  only,   where  it became a qiu'stioM   of  di��-up.  lie induced tlie conductorlo telegraph to Winnipeg for transportation to   Fernie  and   return   to  the Landing.      The answer from  the greedy corporation,  promptly forwarded while Joe   wa.s  en-  route,  to  Fernie,   was,    ''Yes",  ft, is doubtful if he   would   have  visited  East Kootenay if transportation   had   not   been   forthcoming.  DiiMerf!  wm of East Kootena  EiectorarDistncii:  'I    JMI'lli.\ 1  MIM  u  Mui-iu//  i!i:m:<  Gk.n  i'i.kmi-.n:  ���E. G. Smith impresses his audience as a man who has passed  into the winter of life. His appearance on the platform invokes some sympathy, but not  enough to effect, the electors in  their way of voting.  Mr. Kerr who is doing the  talking for tho "Silent Candidate, is a gentleman, who. when  off the platform, is all right. He  says that Fort Steele is the most  beautiful 'townsite in East or  Wesl Kootenay, aud that Fort  Steele is to be congratulated on  its orators.  ra the LiauoE uw in force  Go      Straight. -Comply     With     the  The manner in which   Messrs.  Harvey and-Koss floored Messrs.  Kershaw. Kerr and Smith on  , Friday last, is the talk of tlie  district.  Mr. J. A. Ha'ryey put a most,  beautiful seal'-brown finish' to  Kerr's speech on Friday night,  and when he, finished and look-  Ins seat, the whole audience rose  in a solid body and gave three  cheers.  According to the testimony of  Messrs. Smith, Baxter and"Korrj  all that is'needed for their chain-'  pion, Joe Martin, is wings.  Martin has proved himself m  Manitoba and' British Columbia  '1o be im unscrupulous politician  who bus no regard for the truth.  After Billy Ross concluded  his speech on Friday night it  looked as if it was a Pretoria  celebration. Eight-Day Joe-will  be buried today.  The political meeting on Friday evening was a walkover * for  lhe Opposition.  Defeat Joe Martin and his representative in this district, and  tho itag of peace, contentment  mid''prosperity will be floating  nil over South East Kootenay.  Henry Kerihaw, chairman-,of  ���the Smith-Martin meetings', im-  , presses the people ,as a maiVwho  lias something at stake, as a man  who was looking for the best of  it. His senile, effeminate appearance on the platform is such  2L.s to cause the-electors to say,  ������"that like master, like man, he's  K. Ci.  It looks as if E. 0. Smith was  afraid to meet his opponents on  the platform. No notices ol his  meetings are given out, until il  is too late for the Opposition to  bring their guns into action.  ;Of Costigan is not elected ho  will , doubtlessly damn every  elector in the riding thai did not  ���vote for him, also The Prospector.  The "Silent -Candidate" don't  want any Opposition talk at his  meetings. ���  - Many people who attended the  Graphp-Amliphonc' exhibition on  Tuesday "evening last were much  disappointed; they though that  Baxter had come back.  Politics I'or the past month has  been   the  all  absorbing  theme.  People whd   have  been   expressing Iheinlelves on the issues of  the day have run down,  and  lo  day are repealing  the old-time  political chestnut of '"I  told you  so".     The  wise-acres  have "demonstrated their ability to run a  campaign.     Tho defeated candidates are putting up till   manner  of excuses as lo why they- were  not   elected,   and   dn'niiiing Tin*  .Pitowi'KOTOR, which will always  be  an   important   factor   iu   the  interest of South East. Kootenay.  Kerr, the oralorial wliirlwind.  in speaking of the chairman of  the Smith meeting on Friday  last, said:���"That ministerial  fellow is the d���desl ass I ever  saw." Other people in Fort  Steele quite agree with Mr.  Kerr.'  Between Harvey, ,Ross and  Costigan,, the Smith -speakers  are having a moukey and parrot  time in this constituency.  Kerr went to Fernie on Monday, and hi the same coach wore  Messrs. Harvey and Ross.  Though favored with an early  suiison it look's as if the work of  prospectors and miners will  have to be carried on without  the assistance of the Government 'towards road and trail  Inn Id ing.  A provincial government iu a  ���country containing, not, exceed  200,000 people, is taking a large  burden upon its shoulders when  it proposes, to build several  ���hundred miles of railwav.  The . Moyie Leader tolls its  readers tliat Mr. Costigan"s election is assured. Air. Smith.must  have made a thorough canvas.of  the district to arrive at that conclusion.  .\ir. Costigau's organ, tlie  Moyie Leader, actually believes  their man will be elected.  The candidature of J. R. Costigan has never been taken seriously by the electors of this riding. Al'ter tomorrow he can return to his law practice a sadder  if not a wiser man.  The chairman of the Smith  meeting on Eriday evening of  .last week, had a voice that  would raise the envy of a crow,  he succeeded in making a royal  purple jackass of himself. Such  people ought to be kicked out of  a- political meeting, let. alone  preside, as they annoy and disgust the  intelligent  voter.  Mr. Costigan objects to being  called a Conservative, and denies that in thi.s campaign he is  out as a straight Conservative.  Tin-Pkospis-jtok has taken the  gout Ionian's statement and made  tlie correction. What more does  lie want.  vF.   S.   Baxter'of , Vancouver  and "a Mr. Kerr of Phoenix, have  The Winnipeg Voice calls the  present election in British Columbia a struggle between capital  and labor.' Tho editor must be in  close touch with tho issues which  are dividing the people in this  campaign. So far as we can  learn it is a fight between Mar7  tin and. those opposed to him.  Joe Martin Kicked.  Joe Martin objects  to  paying  been in South East Kootenay to | railway   fare.     When  he   made  Straight. -Comply     With  Law.-- -Safe- Guard Your  Interests.  The Liquor License Act of  IbOO having been disallowed by  the, Dominion ,Government" Joe  Martin says there is now no law  in force in ., British Columbia regulating the sale of into .vica-ting-liquors, except in the  extra municipal territories.  The office of the Attorney-  General' is responsible for this  bald assertion.  To our mind -'The Act Respecting Liquor Licenses'' in  British Columbia is in' force today just as** much as il was  in force1 on the clay it became a law.  Joe Martin   in   his  official  capacity in Manitoba'has had bills  disallowed     many     times,    and  there is no one in British Columbia that is more'fully acquainted  with the,British North American  Act than Joe Martin...    In drawing our conclusions we are of the  opinion that Joe'Martin   is  trying  to  mix   up' these   matters,  making possibly  some  political  capital'is his favor, throwing all  business connected with the Act  in utter confusion,   in lhe end.  Causing all' troubles,   confusion  and responsibility  to  rest with  the incoming house. <  We again say that there is no  responsible lawyer in the 'Province and particularly in the Fort,  Steele district,  that,   after  hav-  ( - ,  ing carfuilv read section f>(5, and  section.- 90,, of our law* for the  .British North American Act, is  the law of British Columbia.that  can ' truthfully say. thai the  liquor law of fS9i) is not now in  force. Yes! and Joe Martin  knows1 full well that the. law is  in force.  We are in receipt of communications almost every day regarding thi.s matter. ' seeking information as how to .proceed, saying shall wc close' onv business  or keep on, if so are we liable lo  prosecution, and if so under what  slalute.  We think the better procedure  will be for all parties interested,  to make application 'for  licenses  and renewals   in  just  the  same  manner,as in. 1S99.      Send  your  fees to the finance   minster,   get  your  receipt for   monies   sent,  notify the chief inspector for the  district, in other words,  comply  .with the existing'law.   then  go  ahead and do  business,   placing  full responsibility just  where  it  belongs���upon the Government.  �� Why Jf>e Martin has not   notified .the  commissioners  of  this  district thai. ,the   law   is  not  in  force, we don't understand.     A.  B.   Grace,   commissioner,    upon  the   disallowance    being    made  know,    immediately    wired   the  Attorney-General   for    information, stating that   a   meeting  of  the commissioners would beheld  in a few days.' In reply the statutes relating lo the  Liquor  Law)  of 1399 were sent lo him, and he  was told lo proceed under those  statutes.   .No contrary information having been received by him  as    license    commissioner,    one  would suppose that the Attorney  General is  of  the  opinion   that  llie law is in force.  In conclusion our advice lo  those engaged in retailing intoxicating liquor, is. that they comply with the liquor law of |H!)f),  pay all lees connected widi. the  same, make the. proper application its the law provides. Then,  if-the'Jaw-Ms in force, you aro  safeguarded to a certain extent,  and if there is no law you -.can  demand, ret urn of your .money,  for this Government does not  want anything that does not in  justice belong-to them.  At-the request of many electors in tin's riding; I offer myself a.s a candidate to represent the riding in the next Provincial Legislature and if elected will do all in mv power to further the best interests of the Province a.s a whole, and of this  riding in particular.  The platform upon which I am seeking your suffrage is  a.s, follows:  1 I am opposed to the present Government and in favor of  the formation, irrespective of  Federal party lines, of a strong,  capable Provincial Government  which will regain the confidence  of the public and give encouragement to' the investment of  capital and at the,, same time  safeguard tho interests of labor.  - The liberal expenditure of  money throughout the whole  Province on roads, bridges,  trails and other works necessary  for its proper development.  7> Restrictive s legislation lo  keep out undesirable alien labor  and the advocacy of every constitutional means' to, effect thi.s  purpose.  4 Government aid to railways  in the Province where needed  for development purposes.  5 Amendments to the Mineral  Act.  0 While supporting the Eight  hour law. I would favor , any  modifications or amendments  that would -tend to lessen-the  friction between capital 'and  labor without impairing the  principal involved.^  7 Amendments to the Liquor  License Act, simplifying the  workingof the Act and' regulating the number of licenses.  8 Increased County-Court facilities in this district.  9 A' Redistribution, Bill giving increased representation lo  districts that are rapidly increasing in'population.  n  10 No interference with the  location of the present Government buildings until the district  is iurther developed and a  change warranted hy thc necessities of public business,  11 Necessary steps to be taken to put the Labor Conciliation  and,Arbitration Act in force in  the event of disputes between  capital and labor.  12 Every constitutional means  ,to 'prevent the employment of  Mongolian labor, on subsidised  works'in the Province.    '  ft i.s my intention to meet tho  electors of the district prior to  the day of election and more  fully explain my views  NOTICE.

The Univex-sal Language.  There shall be no tongue  but  the English tongue, and the nations of the earfh'shall speak it.  This could almost be~cast into a  'prophecy  that  would  stand  an  excellent   ^chance     of     coming-  true.    There is reason lo believe  lhe English language, with  certain modifications  is  to  become  universal.     At the beginning of  the century those' vsho"' spoke  it  did not  exceed 'fifteen   millions".  Eighty   years  ago   the  number  had   increased   thirty   millions.  No fewer than 120,000,000 are  now English -speaking.    Twelve  years   ago  Mr.   Gladstone  predicted that by   the  close  of  the  oxen   and   mules   could  travel over the great rolling hill  surrounding Pretoria.   The giius  were supported   by  Stevenson's  brigade of Pole CarewVs division  and  after  a  few  rounds  drove  the enemy from their ' positions.  The   Boers  then   attempted,  to  turn our left Hank, in which they  were again foiled by the mounted infantry and yeomanry., sup-  "ported by Maxwell's  brigade  of,  Tucker's division.   As. however,  they still kept pressing over our  left   rear.   1   sent   word., lo Tan  Hamilton,   who  was   advancing  three-miles to our left to incline  towards us and, fill , up   the   gap  between the two columns.    This  finally checked the enemy,   who  were driven back  towards   Pretoria'.    T hoped we   would   have  been able to follow them up..but  the days are very  short  in   this  part   of   the   world,   and , after  nearly two hours inarching  and  fighting, we had to  bivouac  on  the  ground  gained  during   fhe  day.-    The  Guards   brigade    is  quite near the  southermost  fori  by which.

This was done and Dickson was  introduced by Hughes to President J as. .Hill of the Spokane  & Northern, the sou of the president ol the Great, Northern.  That gentleman at once louk  Dickson in his private car. on  May 5th. 10 St.. Paul, promising to use all his inllnenco with  his father. Dickson showed not  only letters from Martin lo Hill  and Kenelrick. but big documents in which Martin agreed,  if his government got in. lo fulfil his offer to the railway magnates. Dickson relumed io  Seattle from St. Paul and lold  affiants that he had been very  successful, thai Mr. Hill alone  wa.s all the backing thoy required, and thai he had already d'or-  warded $L'Fi,(i(K), and would send  another ^a.OOO and more if necessary.
