PRETORIA  CAPTURED  London, Jan. 5.���������Lord Roberts  wires that Pretoria is in the  hands of the British.     Hurrah!!

Aiiy .measure, which lhe provincial  legislature can pass locheck tliis growing evil will receive my support', and  1 shall be in .favor of ihe .-tronge.-i  pressure lii-iiuf plieed on the Dominion  and Imperial nut horilies to assist by  lhe nuist-s-J r.mgent measures I his province iu wluii. is now Ibrealeniiig lo  become a veritable struggle for exist cure for while iviirkiiignien.  I am a linn believer iu llie principle  ot government ownetsliip of railways.  The provision of some effective  system for t be sel tleinentol' disputes  between capital and labor is nnicli  needed, and any measure in this  direction, as well as any others to improve tlu*; coiulit ion of tlie. laboring  classes will Iind me in ils ravor.

The devclopim-nl of the Big Bend  mineral section is a point, which I  should do my utmost to l'u'rlher. The  completion of I he waggon road to the  head of llie canyon and lhe subsidizing a lino of steamers on the upper  river would form in my opinion legitimate methods lor' the legislature to  adopt.in order in attain this desirable,  object.  I would work for- (he construclinii  of riiads, (vails, and bridges ou a hbeuil  scale throughout, (he riding, feeling  sure that the money expended in thus  developing the iiiagiiillccnt mineral  resiiitrees of the Trout hake, Laidemi,  I'-ish Kiver, Illecillewaet, Arrow  Lake and Big Bend sections will  eventually prove a paying inve.-t-  inent for the province in llie  hirge increase of revenue which will  accrue with the growlh of mining  activity within the disirict.

Pretoria, W-'dnesday, May 30.���-Tha
British officers are now at Johannes-
bunj dictating tertn3 of surrendi-r.
The British advance guard is half
way bet-ween Johannesburg and Pretoria It is reported that there is a
force also at Hathc-rly. The forces
have been- dismissed from the tons
around Pretoria. President Kruecr
is now at Waterfall Boven.
London, Urn? ai.-The Dally Mail
publishes thc following despatch from
the Earl ot Kosslyn, who was a prisoner at Pretoria, and who as a civilian'
appears to have been released:
"Pretoria, Wednesday, May ._0.���Pretoria" will be occupied In about two
hours without resistance. The nrn-
dldent has gone to Watorvaal Boven.
The Burgomaster. De Si usa, is authorised to receive the British. He,
r.ilh an Influential committee of eiii-
BMis, Including Chief Justice Oregor-
ovreltl, has been appointed to preserve
llr*�� and property durlns? the Interregnum. KverythiiiK is quiet, but
crowds are wailing expectantly in th_
Church square for thc arrival of the
British. Fearing a possible disuii!.-
anco and bloodshed among thn prisoners at Watorvaal, united Stat.is
Consul Hay and Mr. Lcighwood insisted upon 20 officers being libera to 1
on patrol to go to tho men. Their
action cannot be too highly praised. T
was pennittcd lo accompany the
oncers.     Everything was riuiot."
London, May 31.���Yesterday at noon
the British were only about two hours
cia-ch   from   Tretcria    and   the   _S_er
military   forces    had   abandoned    t-is
city.      This    intelligence    comes  from
tho  neuter agency  at  the   Transvaal
capital, and from the Earl of Rosslyn
ln  a  press despatch.      The   two  messages left about the  same time.      Up
to  2   o'clock   this    ni'jirnins    the   war
offco  received  no      news   from    Lord
Roberts  which      the   officials      would
make public,  but  lt   is  assumed   that
the  press advices  are correct.      Mori
of the London morning papers, through
courtsey of the Daily Mall print Lord
rtosslyn's despatch and comment up.n
lt.  treating the war as ended.      Somo
-of    the   more   cautious    critics    think
that   guerilla   warfare   is  likely   to b-i
carried on  for some    time    in various
porta   of   thc   conquered   country,   al-
��� though the Boer, forces ars dissolving.
Lord Roberts  has not  taken any con ���
siderablo  quantities  of artillery   arms
or   atores.      Large    bodies   of     Boors
"must still  bo  somt where   in   the   flei'l

o.i    the   Delagoa    Bay    railroad.      It
should not be confused    with  Water-
��raa_, 10 miles     a��ith     of      Pretoria,
where    the      British    prisoners      a*r_.
Watervaal Boven is  a small  place in
a mountainous country.      The seat of
the Boer government, what    there    is
left of it, will probably be Penburg to
thc north of Pretoria.
A despatch from Lorenzo Marque;;,
dated Wednesday, says: "Commandant Krauo has surrendered Johannesburg to Lord Roberts. By tonight's
train from Pretoria "arrived a few
Greeks who say they ��� were told to
' leave Pretoria Tuesday. They aflirin
that the train in which thej left was
shelled by the British and half of the
train was cut off. The remainder
steamed away. This incident probably occurred at Clandsiontein. Passengers from Pretoria assert, that the
town is utterly demoralised. -There is
a mad rush for the coast. Five train
loads of fugitives are expected here
The Lorenzo Marquez correspondents think the border trouble U>-
tween the*" Transvaal and, Porluacl
may come to a head at any moment.

way  blocked      by a  body   of     Boeis

miles  south  of   the Rand.      They ha-1
two   heavy   guns     and     several     field
guns.      General    Hamilton    forthwith
attacked.     The right was load by .the
Gordons, who after capturing one extremity of the ridge,  worked, along it
until after dark,  clearing the    enemy
nut who fought most obstinately. The
One Hundred and Fourth regiment leJ

action  and   the  casualties  fell    to the
Gordons,   whoso   gallant   advance   ex -
cited  the  admiration of all.     General

of praise    of  lhe    manner    in    which

London, June 1���The war despatches
yesterday afternoon might lead, to the
belief that the Pretoria demonstrations
are premature, but it is not believe-d
to be so.
Pretoria Is not yet actually occupied
by the British, but the Boera have
evidently both caved in and are resolved on the surrender of the capital.

London, June 1.���The Westminster
Gazette says it is rumored in a quarter likely lo be well informed that
President Kruger has been captured
by the British six miles beyond Pie-
toria. The Evening News has a de-,-
patch from Pretoria to the effect th it
Johannesburg has been handed over
to  the  British.
London, June 1.���The following despatch from Lord Roberts, the British
commander ln chief in South Africa,
has been received at the war office:
"Johannesburg, May ill���Her Majesty's

The Daily Mail says it   has received

correspondents at Pretoria completely
confirming Lord Rosslyn's despatch "f

capital of the Transvaal.
"London, June 1.���Belated despatches

The press despatches from the Ilea J-
quarters of Lord Roberta give no o.-
limine as io ihe number of Boers who
were lighting General French and
General Hamilton Monday and Tuesday, but ihey all agree that th'.-
Boers retired and that the British
casualties  were   slight.
.Mr. Bennett Burleigh wiring to '.i"2
Daily Telegraph from Elandsfont.-iii.
Tuesday, says: "Much rolling tstot'-i
and seven engines have been captured
by Lord Roberts' column. The principal losses in the lighting have been
sustained by the mounted infantrv,
but tho casualties are trifling. Gen-"
oral French and General HamllUm
are engaged to the w.ist of Johannesburg. Since Sunday the westi-i-.i
columns havo been lighting, althou .ii
guns were used, the actions were
never serious. In fact they wore *onI\
big skirmishes. * The Boers are retreating  to  Pretoria."
Mr. Provost Batlersby In a despatch
to the Morning Post from Germlstjn,
;"l;.ted May M. says: "Tho enemy
fought a roar guard action retiring
ironi the south to the north of tin
town with their pompoms and ar'.l'.-

afternoon. We captured nine engines
and over a hundred wagons. Two
trains are leaving tonight for '.he
Vaal. We succeeded in cutting thi
line in three directions and imprisono*!
all the rolling stock in' Johannesburg.
It was a splendid piece of work. The
enemy was astounded at the rapidity
of our advance."
Another correspondent telegraphing
from Germiston the same day says:
"I learn that the Boers are masHl;*..-;
six miles south of Pretoria for a ne v
and desperate stand, lyith a front of li
inilss. Other rumors in the camp o'
Lord Roberts aro that President

Some discussion is going on in London as to what will be dona with President Kruger if he is captured. On",
idea is that he will be sent to i>t-

for treason.
The Dally Express eayB: "Mr.
Kruger's agent has inyeated ���E140,---J('

London, June 2���With Johannesburg
lidded to the list of British towns the
nation now awaits a similar transformation at Pretoria and doubtless Lord
Roberts pre this has started for the
capital. . The.. reslstance_ he will encounter is a mater " of conjectu_e"
thoiigh most critics agree it will .not
he sufficiently strong to delay the capture of Pretoria longer than tomorrow.

that Pretorl* .;s J^eine" ooiurcrflad by

news gives rise to a suspicion lhat the
citizens' committee at Pretoria may
not have been able to carry-out tielr
plana for* securing the peaceful entry
of Lord lt.bs.rts and sparing the city
the horrors of ,a -liilffi.. The peae*.
party appeared to be In the 11seejj44.it

the defences, perhaps with the view
of keeping pfder in the town. If

or if the British, being two tij&ui'-j'

entered It then or at any time pr.or

certainly faayo tflegraphed the fact.
Hence, it looks an tuouaj? t*>){*r? >yas ��,

New York, June 2.���In discussing thd
latest  Transvaal  war   news  the   correspondent of the World says the failure of the Boer peace mission to America   has  done   much   towards -convincing the Pretoria government that
there was no  hope of outside  assistance.     The question Is whether these

The  press   anticipates  a  prolongation
of irregular warfare in the mountainous regions of L!denburg,.but the.best

the abandonment of Johannesburg and

I believe in the main the platform
proiiiulgaled by the government is the
most progressive which        has
been placed before the electorate
and legislation along its lines will
receive my support, as will also any
legislation for the amelioration of the
condition of labor in this province.
Regarding Asiatic immigration I am
in uncompromising opposition to it
and will assist in every legitimate way
to stem it-*, lide and disiourage ils

There was to have been a baseball
match on tlie gun club grounds on

J..M. Kellie returned on Sunday
evening from the. Lardeau where he
���was electioneering in the interest, of
the Martin candidate. Mi. McRae.
Mr. Kellie did not, from all accoutiis.
satengthen the cause for McRae and
was received with icy interest.
Tlie list of' ciindidal.es reveals us
nothing else could tlie hopelessness of
the position of the Martin part.y iu
thu. present contest. Further discussion of the platform of the party is
only Hogging a dead horse. Nomination day saw Mr. Martin already
practically beaten. In thu first place
out of a total of 3S seats there are six
for which thcru is no Martin candidate
at all. In Cariboo and Cassinr with
two seats apiece and in Nelson and
South Nanaimo with one, whoever
gets in i.s pledged to oppose the
government. Now as Mr. Martin
must, necessarily be able to muster at
least 20 followers to carry on the
government this means lhat he has to
secure all but 12 of the rum.-iiniiig 32
seats. But to begin with it is understood thnt in Comox, McPhee, who
was credited as a Martin candidate,
has repudiated him, which if it is tlie
case, leaves him without a candidate
in still another riding. In Nanaimo
cily Mr. Yates has no more chance of
defeating Ralph Smith than of becoming grand    vizier   in   Tiinbuctoo.      In
Cimit:h.-in, Richmond, Dewdney. the
two Lillooets, West Yale and N. 10.
Kootenay are seven constituencies in
which his candidates have not got.
even a fighting chance. Nothing
short ol a miracle will enable him lo
slip one of his representatives in
among Victoria's big four. So thai
he will require to carry every other
constituency in the province, and then
will coine one short, of the necessary
twenty. Of course it. is absolutely
impossible for him to do even t his. '1 o
say nothing of om* riding, these are at.
least eight or nine in which his candidates' chances are lhe slimmest of
the slim, and in crown all the latest
advices from Vancouver are lollie
elfei.t, that his own constituency is
very likely to reject him and his other
three candidates in thai cily. If there
are ten Martin men on deck afier the
Dill thev will be doing very well and
thu chances are thai .Mr. Martin himself will not be there to lead them.
Further discussion therefore of Mr.
Martin or his platform would seem to
be superfluous. lie will not be in a
-position after next Saturday to   carry
-his-pljttfoi'iii-oufc***-**"*-*���.--������-���= *���*���- - -
The folly of throwing away a vote
on a candidate, whose party is wiih-
out anv reasonable expectation of
coming into power need not he pointed
out. Mr. Martin is' .a beaten man
already and probably no one in the
piovince more fully leali'/.es it than h
