There is  more work* being done than anywhere on the east side, of the'  Kootenay. From recent information received, the results of  development on the Montana,  John L, Esfella aud other claims  is perfectly satisfactory.  The people of the Fort Steele  district hail every reason to believe that the present season  would be one of nnparalled activity, but the provincial elections coming on put a, quietus  upon mining development.

Not  over     thirty    minutes   elapsed  when Billy Langley  came after  me and said that they were stealing the ballot  boxes,   that   they  had     stole     them.       I    asked  him   the   circumstances  of   the-  case.    He told me.   and  then  I  went to fhe house of the stipend-,  ary-magistrate and' laid  a  complaint.

It was only after the polls , were  closed that the enthusiasm of Mr.  Smith's  followers  broke   loose,  and it continued until the returns  coming in made it sure that  Mr.  Smith was to be the next  member from South  East   Kootenay.  Then the crowd  shouted   themselves hoarse, and securing,,the  Government dump-cart  and   attaching ropes the gang preceed-  ed by the band went to the resi-  deuce of Mr. Smith and brought  him in triumph down town.

It was Sunday night and the  celebration was being continued  when about I 1 o'clock il was ru  mored that one of the ballot  boxes had been stolon. This  caused great excitement and  on the statement of I). R.  Mvinro Dan. Stadlander was  arrested.       It,    was    a   tempest  when  acting  on   the  defensive.  The  pacification  of   the   whole  Transvaal   especially   the   wide  spaces    far    from   railways,    is  looked   upon  as  a  business re-0  quiring    months    rather,   than  weeks.

Only    Seven    Straight   Government  Candidates Returned   Opposition  Is In.  Vancouver, li. C. .June 10.���  The Martin govorntiiont has been  overwhelmingly dofctited', as a  result of .today's election i'or  rnembers of the provincial parliament. The legislature iscotn-  jio.sed of "}.���? members and at mid-  jiiglit returns have been received from oii constituencies, r indi-  ��-itin<r the election of 2a opposition and only seven straight supports of the <joverntiient.     The  . Lhree seats which are still in  doubt will probably return opposition members. Premier Martin does not, acknowledge an absolute defeat, but claims his ability to induce half a dozen meiu-  btir.s-elect ' counted ��� iimong the  opposition to support his government upon a vote of want   of  confidence in the house.  fi '  The straight conservatives  -will have' the strongest individual following, having elected I'd  members.' Martin, the premier,  ��� is elected in Vanconvez-, as is  also' Smith-Curtis, minister of  mines in the Ros-dand district,  a-iid .1. C. Brown of Westminster,  minister of finance. Two of��the  ministers, Yates of Victoria and  .TJeebe of Yale, are defeated.   .  Charles Wilson, leader of the  conservatives, and P. L. Carter-  CoLlon, leader of the, provincial  party, are both defeated in -Vancouver city, where Mayor Card-  t>n led the poll in the conservative interests.  11 is predicted that when f,he  house meets, and when the government has been defeated up6n  , .a vote of want of confidence,  that then either ex-Premier  Turner of Victoria, Mayor Garden of Vancouver or H. D. Hel-  nicken of Victoria will be called  upon to form a conservative government. '  j ' rj-.j'-r.

K'aslo. .Juno   Id.-- The   Slocan  riding helped to deal   the   death  'blow   to    Martitiisin    in   British  ���Columbia.,.      Robert    F.   (ireen,  the   miners' candidate,   went,  in  Hying   and   Ceorge    Kane,    the  Martin man, lost his deposit.  At  one   lime   it,  looked   as   if  John  Keen, the business men's  candidate,   would   also   lose his ��200,  but he just managed to  save   it.  ���Creeu's   majority  was   28<i,   the  .figures being:    (Jreen 04-1.

The  decree   finds   that  there   is   no  union    between    the   Anaconda  vein and any vein or any branch  of any vein  having  its  iipox  in  the claims of the plaintiff.

One has  been  used- as  a   tombstone    in  Texasrfor 38 years, and is in just  as good condition now as the day  it  was  hauled  away   from   tho  office and planted at   the  grave.'
