They were out for a Sunday stroll,and  just fell on to it, secured samples  containing 30 per cent, of pure native  coppiT and drove their stakes. When  the news of the find became known  lute Sunday evening there was a whirl  of excitement. A t 3 o'clock Monday  morning, perhaps before the town of  Ferguson, in most part, were awake,  they werenwny to the scene of native  copper, which is just now n better  Hnd than a gold mine.

One candidate  retired after another. Frank Craig  loft the field after a consultation with  his leader Ralph Smith, who repudiated both W. M. Lawrence and J. M.  Kellie, and being quite convinced that  both these politicians and their chief  advisers wero merely making a cats-  paw out of the Labor party, to further  their own ends, told them that under  the circumstances, if he had a vote in  the riding, he would give it to Taylor.  Mr. Lawrence then followed suit and  withdrew, giving business reasons as  his motive and Mr. Taylor was leTt for  a while in undisputed possession of  the field. At last Mr. McRae, the  well known member of the provincial  police force in this district and lately  gazetted mining recorder at Tiout  Lake, was prevailed upon by a combination of ,1. M. Kellie. the government officials and the heads of the  Martin party to come out. The exact  stripe of political blanket which  should cover the professedly bitter  anti-Martinite J. AI. Kellie ancl staunch  Martin men like W. AI. Lawrence and  his committee was obviously a difficult matter io choose. It was however, arranged that to*, . save  appearances all round- Mr. AIcRae  should come out as an Independent  Martin candidate. The Martin part  put W. AI. Lawrence and R. S. How-  son on his nomination, paper, the  Independent end gave a small cranny  or rat hole for J. AI. Kellie to crawl in  out of the rain. But except for this  nee of the magic word Independent,  which has thus enabled Mr. Kellie and  his clique to make one last forlorn  grasp at retaining their old* time say  in this community, there is absolutely  nothing to distinguish Air. AIcRae's  position from that of his predecessor.  Air. Lawrence. Air. McRae, will support the Martin platform. So"did Air.  Lawrence. Air. McRae will also  support Air. Alartm as long as he  adheres to his platform. So said Mr.  Lawrence. There is absolutely not  the slightest difference in the respective attitudes of the two men on this  point. . The only difference is that the  word Independent tacked on to the  Martin affords Air. Kellie a thin nnd  gauzy vefl, through which he fondl y  hopes the public will be unable to  detect the indecency of this his fresh  change of political clothing. That is  absolutely "all there is to it.  Otherwise there is no change at all  in the situation produced by the  succession of Alartin candidates except the varying personalties of the  two men. Hud Ah*. McRae come out  say six weeks ago he might have made  a very pretty fight of it. But his late  appearance in the field combined wilh  his alliance with Mr. Kellie are handicaps which no man in the riding could  liopiTto overcome. 1 Cis qui te cerlaiiv  ty the case that'as far as Revelstoke  goes, the change of candidates has  left Air. Taylor in a stronger and  better position than ever. And although the reports from other points  in the riding are not yet lo hand there  is little doubt that when he is able to  really size up' the situation from  personal observation Air. McRae will  regret his precipitancy in allowing  himself by accepting the candidacy to  be used as the tool of the Kellie clique  on" the one hand and as n mere stopgap  to preserve the Marlinites from the  grave effects on the whole election,  of allowing Mr. Tavlor to be elected by  acclamation on the cither.

Justice Drake in handing down  his opinion in the matter of the writ of  prohibition, to prevent, Collector  Wright from placing on the voters' lift  the names over which there ha������ heen  so much contention, said in effect that,  Collector Wright acted out of his jurisdiction in throwing out the objections  as has been already reported.

Also that all persons  whose names were objected to ehou'd  have been given thirty days' notice.  Mr. Justice Drake in summing up  grants the writ of prohibition in the  following terms: '-I think this is a  proper case for the exercise of t.he  power of the Court and I direct a writ  of.prohibition to be used to restrain  Ihe'inclosionpf bhe'iiames objected to  in the list of voters until these objections have been properly .considered.

Committee  was appointed to secure a place of  safety for the women and children.  The consul general of the .Nethar-  lands was asked to advise his government to take count of its subjets.  Ono speaker said tho position was  very dark. Thc British, he declared,  .would be masters of the Free State  and the Transvaal, and might would  be right.

London, May 22.���������Lord Roberts reports to tho war office in a despatch  dated Kroonstad, May 21, as follows:  "Colonel Mahon reports tho flying  column entered Mateklng at i a.m.  on -May 18. He was stubbornly opposed by 1500 Boers on May 17,ninc  miles from Mafeking, but they were  driven from strong positions after  five hours fighting, thanks, he says,  to tho magnificent qualities of his  troops. A detachment of Canadian artillery by a series of forced  marches, reached him the morning of  the fighting and rendered valuable  assistance. Colonel Mahon's caus-  alties were about 300.' The Boer losses   were heavy.  A despatch to the Dally Mail,   dated Mafeking,  May  13,  says:   "Among  the   prisoners  captured   with     Commandant Eloff are Count de Bremont,  a Frenchman,  and Count Venweisea,  .  a German.      It was.found  that  the  Boers were guided by two deserters,  .named  Hay   and     Bolton.      At    the  ���������enemy's request we have handed over  their dead.    Today    one of our  men  ' -was asked to surrender and replied,  ��������� "Never,"     The    Boers at   once  shot  him through the head."  '    The  second    edition    of tho  Daily  Mail  contains a  despatch  from  Zan-  madibis, under date of May 15, which  says:     "Ihe  British  left  Salagal  on  Sunday, -making their way westward  in   order to avoid Koodsrand, "where  there   ^as a strong  force  of Boers.  The  manoeuvre   was   successful,   but  a large force of Boers in    the  bush  was encountered.  A  column of light  horse dislodged     the Boers who endeavored to enfilade tho convoy, but  were prevented by the  artillery  and  the enemy fled.    Captain Hands was  WOund������d sustaining a compound frac-  tu** of tue-high.    The    Boers    loft  their dead.   The column arrived hero  this morning and met Colonel Plum-  .er's forces.

WaiTenten, May 21.��������� Operations  have been pushed forward 80 milea  ynd one of General Hunter's brigades  occupied Vryburg last night. Considering the difllcnltics of the road it  is a remarkable achievement for a  mixed forco on short rations to  make'.'.' forced /marches. Water is  scarce. General Hunter goes to Vryburg today by train.  Verdefort, May 24.���������The British  columns after an unopposed march  reached the Verdefort *, road at noon  today and are'now only two march-on  from the Vaal river.  London, May 20.���������Tho latest intelligence from ��������� Lord Roberts'': headquarters'* was that the British wero  rapidly.advancing. General Hamilton  had, effected a 'junction with Lord  Roberts. The country in front of  them was clear of Boers to Vlljoen's  Drift The Boers wcr.. evacuating  all their. p.ositions south of the Vaal ���������  and 5000 had already crossed on the  north bank, i iGeneral.

Bennett- Burleigh wiring to' tho  Dally Telegraph from Vordenort.  Thursday, said: "Lord Roberts would  cross the Vaal Saturday or Sunday."  The British outposts are then at  Erate Gelok, nine miles north of  Vredefort and 26 miles south of  Slaal. ��������� The railway is much, damaged.  While the British ln 'overwhelming  force aro approaching the Transvaal  the movements of the Boers are enveloped In mystry. The last Pretoria  newspaper to reach Lorenzo Marquez  was a week old. Everyone trying to  cross the Portuguese border from the  Transvaal is searched for newspapers  and letters. -Despatches and mail letters containing even harmless references to the.,.war are"suppressed and  tho only news that has emerged from  the Transvaal ��������� during - the . -last 10  das has come by word of mouth.  According to these reports yesterday the Boers wore quarreling among  themselves. The Transvaal paper  money was circulated at 80 per cent  discount. Becket's firm was giving  ������1 in gold for ������5 in paper. Krouse  & Klink,' the engineers who opposed  blowing up the mines, have been  dismissed. Commandant Schutet, ha.s  been appointed to defend Johannesburg and all the British subjects have  been turned out. Transvaalers fear  the British will blow up the bridges  "at Komatipoort," thus cutting off their  supplies form Delagoa and a commando of 500 is guarding the bridge  against any such attempt by tho British. ,  It is reasserted that President Kruger will retire to Lydenburg when  lighting is imminent at Johannesburg  1 and Pretoria, Concern is expressed at  Pretoria with reference to the possibility that-General Carrlngton* may  come down from Rhodesia with 5000  to co-operate with as many more entering, the .Transvaal by way of Mafeking. Horse sickness Is said to have  broken out among General Carring-  ��������� ton's; animals.  The Brotongh stimulated by tho  "Bfittelr"Vu_cess_ftttacked-the"-rebels-at-  Roefontein.

They released  Sani,  the old  chief,  who had rendered good   service*  to,  the British in keeping Mafeking supplied with news   of   tho Boer operations.    The railway south of Mafeking is being rapidly repaired and the  bridge at Taungs can    now bo used.  Refugess from Mafeking aro pressing  i through Taungs, bound for the Cape.  ..Two.thousand Boers are near Ficks  burg besides small roving parties" that  come into contact with   the* British  w hen ;recbnnoltorlng.- President; Steyn  waa with these Boere last Monday,  organizing and inspiring   them * and  drafting recalcitrants into    the ' service.    The British aro sweeping the  country, far and wide, seizing horses,  cattlo and  grain.      Yesterday President  Steyn  was  reported    to  be  at  Bethlehem with a: small    field forco  appealing to the Free Staters to defend their freedom e.nd their ihdepend  ence.   Apparently he and all the Free  Staters he can assemble will not join  the Transvaalera but will remain in  the northeastern section of tho Free  State.   On Tuesday there waa heavy  cannonading at  Merchenenez,,  near  Bethlehem,   The-firing began at dusk  but-the reason of it and with w!tat  result Is" not Uno-wa at Maseru," Ba-  BUtoland, where the news arived yesterday.   -o  ������r?������.?T_mw.flmmmw_w^  ^ *.A'HAP'  Head Office, Toronto.
