Tin1rousing ovation, which greeted
Uiui. C. H. Mackintosh tin  his return
to Rossi,uid ft 0111 tho east List Friday,
is   n   wonderful     testimony    to   the
extraordinary popularity nl' the genial
"'governor" in the city, for  whicli he
has done so much.     Recognising the
fact (hut  in   Hon.   Smith   Curtis lhe
Conservative candidate is lighting  the
strongest man of thu Martin enmbina-
tinn, many nf Mr. Mackintosh's friendh
were anxious to see him return to the
scene of the campaign, but Iho iccep-
tion accorded tu him  the moment he
landed renders itphvious that nothing
the. government supporters have heen
able to do has had  the least effect in
loosening the hold which Mr. Mackintosh has on tho iilfections of the good
city   of   Rossland    and    dispels   any
misgivings as to the effect which his
absence might have nn the  riding tit
thi*; critical stage of the game.   II   is
nnt, for nothing that Rossland   is glad
to welcome Mr.  Mackintosh and will
he proud to .place  hiui   in   tlie .local
legislature   "us     her     repiesontative.
There are good solid  rea.son8 for the
feelings of Rossland* towards*-'him for
there is not another man in Canada,
who has done so lunch to develop the
resources uud further the  piogress of
the Rossland  district  as  he  has.   He
has beet, the means of  bringing  more
enpitalintoth.it part of the country
than'probably anybody has induced to
come into any patt. of the province.
'He   hns lieen   11   good   friend   to the
riding nnd everybody in  it,  working-
men as  well  ,*is everybody  else.    We
say  workingnien   et-pecially   because
there is a campaign  lie   going about
that Mr. Mackintosh is opposed to the
eight hour law. 'He is nothing of  the
kind.   His position on the eight hour
law is tlio honest,   practical, open  and
above lioaid stand taken   by  Mr. Wilson and   the Conservative party  that
the. eight hour  law  will, stand  until
both Illinois and mine nwneis demand
its modification or repeal.    And it was
iu view   of   this   very .stand   that he
protested ' to , liis  comuiitleu   against
mine  owners  being  allowed -to-con
tiibute to his ^election  fund,   since   if
they  did,   it   might   hamper   him   in
dealing  inipiutially   and-justly  with,
this veiy question. / .  -.

Mr. Osier Says.
Toronto, May 12-At a puhlic meeting: of the-Mncdoniild Olnli of West
Toionto hist night, Mr. Maclean, M.P.,
prophesied a victory for the Conservatives, ut the next federal election.
They would have a majority in_ the
Maritime Provinces; might lie a little
behind in Quebec, hut would still make
heavy inroads on Lauiier theie; they
would have a. niajnrit.y of twenty in
Ontario and.iWoiild_beat_ithe_Liberals
five to one west of Lake Supei inr. He
bestowed a svordtif praise on thegnind
fighting qualities of Sir Chailes
Tupper and proclaimed Hugh John
Macdonald as the' rising hope of the
Conservative party.
Mr. Osler,*M. P.. said if 'hard times
were to come upon the country as in
the.elih and flow of things was inevit-
alile some day, the rule of the Laurier
government would he absolutely
disastrous.. People weie lulled into
indifferent e hy the present prosperity.
He had reliable information thnt the
general election would take place
someu here about Octoher and urged
a vigorous campaign hy the club.

A  Few   Pointers for the Electors  from
the Ferguson Eagle. ,
J. ,T. LanRstafl', of the Tiout Lake
Topic, wont out ,to Revelstoke on Sunday. He \iill possibly actus a guide
forW. _I. L'lwrence, his candidate,
Mr, Lawrence never having heen in
this district or, any other pot tion of
the riding except the town of Rerelstoke, in his life:
Thero is some talk here of running
in the gold hi ick proposition on lhe
occasion of Mr. Lawrence's flrst and
last visit to the Lardeau. lilr. Lawrence lacks J. M. Kellie's initiatory
ability in the knowledge of wildcats..
Here's a chance for a"slutr" hoys.
Mr. Lawrence should he dead easy.
The loudest kickers against Thos.
Taylor are those whom Tom has nssi. t-
ed in times gone hy. Mr. Taylor is 11
poor man, hut the Eagle will venture
to say that he still has a few unpaid
miner's license accounts in his possession. If those who aie trying to pick
flaws in his career would reflect over
the good tut ns Tom has done them
from time to time, their opinion would
be much improved.
An Amusing 'Cuss.
Mr. Martin's campaign in the Koote-
nays was marked, as we say,  hy well
attended   meetings,   to     which    the
people went out of cmiosity and for
the put pose of lieing amused and  in
the latter lespect they., were nnt disappointed.   The "premier' made some
frank'admissions  regaiding   his   pei-
sonal conduct,  which   weie   not  less
true because they were delivered in a
jocular   vein.     He   touched   the   risibilities nf his   auditors* hy  his lively
descriptions of the way  in which he
had discomfited some of his opponents
and he made sonie merry jests at the
expense of the members   of   the late
government and his adversaries in the
opposition     ranks;' hut   he   did   not
seriously attempt to deal even  with
liis own platform exrept to defend  his
position on the question of Oriental
immigration���a    question   on   which
the great majority of those who are
opposing his return to power feel as
strongly as he does himself.     He gave
no indication   that  he grasped, even
partially, the,questions -..which   allect
the ' great"' mining  districts   of  'the
province,   nor  any   promise   that he
would  safeguard   their  interests    or"
assist    in     their  development.   The
impression which was left on all who
heard   him   at    Rossland,   at  Grand
Porks, at Phoenix, at Epolt was that
he was a politician  who regarded the
province as   a   theatre   on   which   he
desired to play an important role, -lint
that the character did not necessarily
imply that he was to lie a disinterested
legislator (ii-   a  public  benefactor.    It
was'Joseph Martin's consequence as a
public man which was to he  sustained
by   his  return   to   power,     not    the
country's  interest   which'was to   lie
served ; it was his own restless ambition which was _rr.be satisfied not the
people's well heing which  was to be
assured."'In such a fight as the present
one and with such objects in view Mr.
Martin   cannot   hope   to'win.    'The
people have too much at stake to elect
a  man   to   office   on   the strength of
vague   piouiises   or   because    of    his
faculty for telling jests.    Tbe develop-
ment  of_his country is a.iiiatter^' of

Revelstoke, B. O.
Is There a Conspiracy.
This is said to be the explanation
of Mr, J. O. Brown's entry into the
To begin at the beginning*; Mr.
Brown was asked to be premier, but
he declined unless given full liberty in
the selection of his colleagues, which
being refuse'd^ he played the role of
sulky Achilles. He ha�� since come
nut of his tent, buckled on his armor,
shouldered his Winchester and
assumed office under Mr. Martin.
The consideration theieuntn moving is
alleged ti>bc a tripai Lite agreement to
the following effect: If the Marti nit cs
win the party ih to he called together
and Mr Martin and Air. Ijiown will
be ba!lotted for as leader. The
uiibiiccesafiil man will support the
successful man through the.session. at
whichii hill will lie passed 1 estoriug the
otlice of agent-general in' London,
with a line salary. Immediately after
the session the Lieutenant-governor
wiU'rebign   and be   appointed   to  the
Loudon office, and the unsiK-cessful
candidate for the pi-emieiship wiH lie
tuged upon the Ottawa ministry for
tho vacancy at Government House.
This explanation of Mr. Brown's
conduct is believed by well-informed
people to be correct, and if it is, it casts
an extraordinary light upon the political events of the past two months. It
is something very like a conspiracy.���

CANADIAN CATTLE  INTERESTS  Late advices received state that Argentine cattle circles, and the vessel  men engaged in the transportation  from that South American r .public to  England, have been thrown into a  Etate of great excitement by an order  of thc British government wheh became effective on April 30th, by which  . the exportation of live cattle from that  country to Great Britain has been  prohibited on account of foot and  mouth disease prevailing among the  cattle of Aregntina. According to Mr.  Robert Blckerdilce, aad other, prominent Montreal business men engage*..  in live sto*.k interests, il is thought  ihe effect of thc embargo will be. bul  temporary, because sound cut tit* will  be weeded out and dressed meat  shipped to England instead of on the  hoof.' As to the probable effect of the  measure on Canadian cattle local  shippers by no means entertain the  same ideas. Som-J contend that it  ought to stimulate the Canadian cattle  trade considerably, while others again  think: that Canada will feel but little  benefit. Nevertheless, some good will  accrue; and one of the earliest results of the cattle embargo against  Argentina will be the reorganization  of the Dominion Live Stock association., which has been inactive for several years past. The threatened paralysis of Canadian live stock- shipping  due to the withdrawal of freighters  for use in the African war service,  will likely be averted should the association take a new lease of life, with  consequent activity, and pioinuu: ...  plan by which vessels shut out of the  live stock carrying trade between Argentina and Great Britain may be induced to fill the gap in Canada. "What  ���������R-e want now" says Mr.Bickerdike "is a  string of vessels which have been shut  "out of the Argentine trade by reason  of the order ot the British government. This temporary stoppage  should, in my opinion, be taken advan-  ���������tasa-of_by_Canadian cattle interests.  The system ot inspection oi cattle  leaving Argentine ports is such as to  protect  the  consumer  in England,  as  * elsewhere, against contaminated heef.  The result ,of the embargo will be that,  while no catile on the hoof will be received in England from Argentina  while such order is in torce, sound  cattlo will be slaughtered and refrigerated acrot*a." The- prohibition refers, evidently, only to the landing of  live cattle and sheep. Tho iilst-tirc,  the prevalence of which is responsible  for the embargo, is one. of the most  contagious of all cattle- troubles, ar.J  has, in time past, causeel U.i:iOcn.������  loss in South Africa and elsewhere.  It is characterized by a ."crne-ss of  the tongue and mouth of the animal,  and between the clms of Its hoof.  The disease is so contagious i.'-f.'., It is  said, a sound bullock, stepping n. tne  tracks of an affected animal, v. ill at  once develop thc disease and xnuut be  put out of the way, but not marketed.  While not generally fatal in itself,  it prevents the animal eating Its food  or gettlni: about after food, thus  causing destruction of the :ini::.c;.s in  large numbers.  CAVALRY HOR: El-  Cavalry horses wanted, but where  can thev be found? says a writer ir,  the Kentucky Stock Farm. Thero is  something of a demand for cavalry  horses just now, and it Is doubtful if  many can be obtained anywhere except in Kentucky, Terineseu or Ku.-il.  Georgia. The western horse is snl..'  :���������*.. be* loo coarse in the head, legs an:  feet, and the southern burse is io..  delicate.

Corbett, was  decided last ni.nht in the Seaside  Sporting club. Coney Island. At the  ling sice odds of three to one were  ireely laid on Jeffries and well taken  up by Cor'cett's backers. Later 100  to *ir> were offered with few takers.  \ Charley White was chosen as referee.  Corbett gave his weight as 1S5 and  Jeffries at 212 pounds. Both men  were in splendid condition.  The light was a game one Irom start  to finish and up to the 20th round It  looked as if Corbett might still be  lhe victor. In the 23rd round, Jeffries sent his left to Cortett's jaw and  rushed across the ring to the ropes.  Corbett hooked his left sending the  blood spouting from Jeff lies face.  Jeffries sent' two hard lefts to the  body and smashed his left again on  Corbetfs face. Ke then crowded him.  to the ropes and with a full swing  delivered a left smash on the jaw'  sending Corbett rolling.down and out.  Corbetfs head struck the floor heavily. He rolled over in an effort to  regain his feet, but was too far gone  to recuperate within the call of 10  seconds. Corbett lay like a log after  rollir.ET twice over on the ring floor,  but the moment after Referee.

April Hth, has u Ions account of the  arrival of Strathcona's Horse in Table  Bay, and a descnption of the voyage  out. Referring to the mortality  among the horses the Times' correspondent says: "About this time an  epidemic that had bolceri out among  the horses became very much worse.  Our veterinary surgeon dagnosed ir.  as a bad form of pneumonia, and  whatever the cause the poor animals  died in half-dozens. Up to the time,  of writing this (April 8) we had lost,  over a hundred, and although the  worst is over, we still continue to lose  a few. I asked Colonel Steele if he  could in any way account for the loss  ���������for ftie epidemic���������and he admittea  that he could not. The only reason  he could think at all probable was  their having left a' paiticularly dry  and .high region lo come down to the  damp and moist airs that they were  uaccustomed to. Everything that  human ingenuity could devise, or  skill and labor, or careful watching  and attention do, was done; but it  was in vain, though the mortality  ���������might have" been greater had not this  great attention been shown. Of this  latter I am convinced, although I practically Tenow nothing of the ailments  of horses, and of bronchos in particular."  i\; ������".> ?" r> j! ��������� ;i 8     t** _ & _ s  ft v  ys 8\  &-_*'9  r. * I*.   r\.   ti.   i * I.

On Saturday, May 12th. a large picnic party arrived at the St. Leon hot  Springs "on the steamer Rossland for  a davs fishing and general outing.

Gordon    and  -Newuinn.    In   the .absence.,..of    the  It is a very curious fact and one of  vliich the significance van hardly be  overestimated, tint those who know  ?.Ir. Martin best in the province as fur  as the. inner history of his political  career is concerned, all with one  accord appears to cherish a profound  and (insurmountable distrust of him.  His lute colleagues nnd supporters  on tbe government -side of the B. O.  legislature. Tory, Grit and Labor  members alike, appear to be of one  mind on this subject, if unable to  agree on any other. The deep mistrust with which he is regarded by  Ralph Smith, the Labor leader of the  province is most instructive. In a  recent letter lo the Victoria Times  Mr. Smith says:  "I  supported   the   Semlin   government    because   they   endeavored to  bring    in   legislation   which   in    my  opinion was  favorable  to the masses  and I differed from Mr. Martin because  he opposed such legislation  and  made  a contract with the enemy to burst, up  such a government.    When I disagree  with a man for such good reasons I am  not prepared to allow  the announcement of certain theories to affect me  in  his favor,  although I   may agree  with the theories themselves,  and,  as  I "/say*,   he   joined   hands   with    the  political enemy and destroyed  what  ������������������ve considered important, if his words  mean   anything.     I    must  therefore  judge him  by his   past   actions.   My  position is an independent one,  with  sympathies for the  lute   Semlin  government, because 1 believe they tried  to do something tor the people.     But,  true, to my   position   as secretary of  t.he   Miners'  union,  and president of  the Congress  of Canada,   1 will  support the people's interests at all times,  and will trust no man' because of what  he says he will do,  especially a man  whose record is  before us of having  defeated good legislation."  Such is Mr. Smith's opinion of Mr.  Mai-tin. The distrust with which, his  political career as a B. C. politician  has in two short sessions filled Mr.  Smith is so great that the latter has,  as he said elsewhere, no use for Mr,  Martin's platform because lie has no  faith in his bona fide intention of  carrying it out.  It is remarkable too that this impression which Mr. Martin has in so  brief a space succeeded in making ou  his fellow politicians in this province  is only a repetition of his record i.i  other political iields. He was to all  outward appearance the life and soul  of the Greenway administration in  Manitoba of which he was. attiirney-  ge'neral. He pushed himself into  quite ns prominent a position in Unit,  cabinet as ever he held even under  Mr. Semlin here and Mr. Greenway  has recorded his opinion of his wliil-  8om colleague nnd attorney-general ns  "a man without heart or conscience."  He left the Greenway administration for the wider fields of Dominion  politics. He snatched Winnipeg like  a brand out of the Tory tire and  formed the connecting link by which  the Grit lenders worked the Manitoba  school question to a successful issue  in 1800. His services to tlie party lo  the outside view were enormous. But  even in the rendering of them he had  filled Mr. Laurier and his colleagues  with a feeling of such profound distrust that tbey wore never openly  rewarded, For any other man who  had done such yeoman's work for the  party a seat in the house and a. place in  oiwes  Large  Consignment  Just Arrived  INCLUDING  Carriage Sponges  25c to T5C  Wool Spanges, 10c to 75c  Mediterranean Sponges  10c to $1.50  Manruka Sponges  t%   $1.50 to $5.00  TO THE LADIES  *f\'  Red Gross  DRUGSTORE  Geo.

The  only point that, strikes the IlRiiAr.n In  Sir. fjimence's cliiiract.erisl.icnlly  canny announcement is that, on the  whole it would suv... trouble if Mr.  Lawrenru carried the facts, with which  Mr. Martin's meteoric political career  fairly bristles, to their logical conclusion and rcpudialed Mr. Martin  right now before thu swerving begins.  _.A_i*i'^e_E'*ing_LQi-J--^Tyirio������i__L<>c*l'ins^.t/i_  select from  POLITICAL POINTERS.
