Martin makes no further announcement as to his cabinet, but in  an interview deals with his opponents in the Liberal ranks  in Vancouver. ' He says that at a meeting of sixty-five  prominent men ou Saturday only four or five were against  him. The' spokesman against him lie says, was E. P. Davis,  Q. C, who, being solicitor for the Canadian Pacific railway is naturally against Martin's railway policy, while one of the others was Mc-  Craney, father-in-law of the ex-attorney-general.  Brown of Westminster has refused overtures from the Liberals  to join Martin's cabinet. Brown says that tho lieutenant-governor  asked him if he would accept the premieiship aud take Martin as attorney-general, and he declined. ���  Davis, for his wing of the Vancouver Liberals, is credited with  ti entering into negotiations with Hibbert Tupper, on behalf of the  ���j Conservatives, to unite forces in an anti-Martin campaign, and  ���< Charles AVilson is suggested as the head of the alliance.  ftxzxs_-azxzzxxzzxzxxzzx__zzzzzxzzzzzzz:.zzxz:xzxzxixxxxxxxzzzxzzxxxxxxz_czxrczxzzzxzzz__z.azz__zzzzzx-_xxxa::xxxxx:  R  the support of a majority in the  assembly. Thus far Mr. Bond has  been unable to come to any agreement with Mr. Murray, whose participation in the Bond program is  essential to its success. If everything else fails, Mr. Bond and Mr.  Morris will probably invite sir William Whitoway, the former Liberal  leader, who retired from active  politics, or rather from the leadership, because of advancing years, to  resume control on the understanding that he shall have their joint  support.  SLOGAN BUSY BUT TOO MANY  BOTH ARMIES ARE WAITING  GATAGRE AND CLEMENT CAN  Now Join Hands.-  London, March   9.���2:50   p.m.���  The Boers in northern Cape Colony  are iu  full retreat to  the Orange  Free    State.       Tho   possession   of  Stormberg puts general Gatacre  in  railroad communication  with  general  Clements   at   Colesburg,  for,  though the Boers partially wrecked  the railroad, it is  understood  that  it can be quickly repaired and thus  the entrance of additional  British  troops into the Free State wiH bo  grjltly facilitated.     From  Osfou-  | tein, where lord Roberts is opposed  by a   good sized body of Boers,  "there is still no news except reports  of minor skirmishes.  , The position gained by generalBra-  baut at Dordrecht is reported to be  exceedingly strong. ~ According  to'  the Times correspondent, the Boers'  numbers alone enabled them to retreat   from  Dordrecht   practically  unhindered.    He also reports a violation of the   white   Hag   by the  Boers, and they  deliberately fired  at close range on a stretcher party.  ���    Geueral White's garrison lias begun to leave Ladysmith and is arriving at   the   Mooi   river   camp,  i where the troops will  remain sev-  i oral days, after which  they tuII go  I further south.   They are emaciated  and exhau&ted,  and say  that the  road to Colenso presents scenes that  exceed"  the 'horrors   depicted   in  I Dante's   Inferno.   Dead   men and  | animals are lying   mutilated   and  putrified in the trenches formerly  j occupied by the Boers, and fill the  air   with  a siokening_ stench. In  eases"whore hurried burial had been  attempted, the rains had washed  the earth away and out of the  earth stick ghastly legs and arms  of dead burghers  A dispatch from Osfontein states  that, according to the Boer prisoners, another important British success will cause president Steyn to  jJee to Pretoria, leaving a provisional government at Bloemfontein,  which is likely to make peace overtures, those Freo Staters not wishing for peace trekking into tho  Transvaal and there helping to  make a stand, which most of the  British military critics now point  lout will constitute the most difficult  J and deciding feature of the war.  Tho recent rains have afforded  [lord  Roberts good grass,   copious  supplies   have   reached    him   aud  jnews  of   his   advance   is   eagerly  I awn ited. -   War Eagle Closed Down.  Some excitement was caused on  Iho streets yesterday by the announcement that that the War  Eagle mine had   been   slmt com-  tion, the temporary hoisting  plant  put in at the station in the 50-foot  level  had  become  dangerous, aud  although 1 was anxious to go on, I  could not do  so with  safety until  the machinery was overhauled and  put  in  a  proper   state  of   repair.  There was no other course open to  us but   to   close   down   until the  changes   and   repairs   referred   to  could be made.    I think that within a week .all that is  necessary can  be done, aud as soon as it is work  will be resumed as usual.    There is  no other significance to be attached  to the matter, I can assure you,"  concluded  Mr.  Kirby, smiling.    "I  have told you all there is about it.  There is nothing behind it that I  know of."    .    BOERS' POSITION WILL BE  Easily Turned.  Osfontein, March 3.���The Boer  position   has now been fairly located aS about four miles  in front  of the British aud extending about  eight miles.   The Boer right consists of a high long mountain on  the north side of, the river, which  general French  shelled this morning.     Apparently   the   space   between the mountain and the river  has been fully entrenched.   South  of the river the Boer lines cover  more   ground.     A   few   days ago  their left rested on the high kopjes  standing in tho middle of the plain.  They ha ve now been extended two  miles further south, while six small  kopjes stand on the "plain between  the centre aud the left and between  the centre and the river, and form  a _ridge behind   which   the Boers  move    The weakness of the whole  position, however, is that it can be  easily turned in  either direction.  Tho   country   is   flat, and   water  abounds, the recent rains having  nearly filled all the dams.  Avoiding Eise in Duties.  London, March 5,���Tho rush to  clear goods from bond continued  today, the London custom house  alone taking in ��480,000, sixteen  times the amount of an ordinary  day's clearance. On Saturday  $281,000 was paid iu duty. As.the  day progressed the officials were  wholly unable to cope with the  enormous business aud had to requisition 'police to turn back tho  crowds of merchants. Similar  scenes were witnessed at Liverpool,  Glasgow and other largo towns.  And Concentrating.  London, March 7.���4:14 a.m.���  Lord Roberts still pauses iu the  neighborhood of Osfontein, while  stores, remounts and fresh troops  stream toward him from the Cape.  The British position also continues  to improve in tho minor spheres of  the campaign. Natal is clear of  Boers and Cape Colony is nearly so.  The Boers seemingly are pursuing  the course commended by the  strategists and are eoncenti-ating  to resist the British main army.  Various messages from correspondents with lord Roberts report that  the enemy are inci'easing continually on his front, extending, as one  correspondent wires, 8 and as another says 18 miles. The lowest  estimate of their number gives the  Boers from 8000 to 10,000 men with  small bodies moving north and  south of the British lines. Each  army is on both sides of the Modder  river.  Although the Boers have mounted  eight guns on the tops of kops, and  appear to be too far away for inspection, the British scouts report  that they are diligently using pick  and shovel. Military opinion is  .that their present position merely  screens more easily defended ones  deeper in the rear. None of the  military experts endeavor to fathom  lord Roberts' plans,., but it is suggested that. he is quite willing to  give the Boers time to assemble "all  their men in order to deliver a  smashing blow more effectively.  The round robin in favor of the  annexing of the Transvaal and the  Free State, which is being promoted among the supporters  of the government , in the  honse of commons, continues to  receive signatures. The signatories  of the memorial to inform Mr. Balfour that the time has arrived for  plain speaking inside and outside of  parliament, and that lord Salisbury's words are being construed  into a pledge against annexing, and  lord Robert's proclamation into a  promise of no confiscation of Boer  property.  The Transvaal agency at Brussels  threatens a rising of the Cape  Dutch in the event of annexing,  though why the Dutch should rise  then rather than now is not ex-  plained. ~~  A. G. Hales, the Daily News correspondent who was captured by  pletely flown and all the hands paid  off, says the Rossland Miner. To a  Miner representative who promptly  called on him for an explanation,  KJmund Kirby, the general mau-  ager, said : "Yes, we have closed  down for the present on account of  repairs being necessary at tho electrical compressor aud at the temporary hoist in the station on the  250-foot level. The compressor has  been working badly for some time,  "Shicl only about one-half of the  proper quantity  of air  was  being  furnished into the mine. It became net.

Newfoundland Deadlock.  St. John's, Newfoundland, March  6.���The political deadlock remains  unbroken. Mr. Bond, leader of the  opposition or Liberal party in the  legislature, has been in conference  today with governor McCallum,  relative to the formation of a cabi-  the Boers ou February 8th, was released at Bloemfontein aud put  tho lines near Sterkstroom. He  telegraphs that, the Boers are demoralized, but adds that they have  been treating British wounded  splendidly.   DUTCH RISING IN REBELLION  In Frieska and Kenhardt.  Cai'G Town, March ii.���Nearly  the whole of the Dutch population  of the Prieska and Kenhardt districts are in rebellion. Many of the  Dutch from neighboring districts  are reported to have joined them,  notably Pict Moolman, who  will lead the rebels to Brandies.  Lucas Steincamp, commanding the  Boers, is reported to be marching on Carnariaon. It is believed  that Gordeuia and Victoria West  will rise.  It is thought that the total number of men in arms will exceed 3000,  and the general opinion among  loyalists is that a strong force of  British will be required, as a reverse would spread the rebellion.  Officers in Strathcona's Horse.  London, March 6.���The following officers of lord Strathcona and  Mount Royal's corps was gazetted  today: Samuel B, Steele of the  Northwest mounted police to be  lieutenant-colonel with the same  temporary rank in the army, and  lieutenants R. A. Laurie, R. A.  Belcher, A, M. Jarris and A. E.  Snyder to he majors.  Men.are Coming In.  New Denver, March 5.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Men have been  rushing into the camp  during the  week at a great rate, there being  now far too many hands offering  than   there   are  openings for.    A  large proportion of the old hands,  who were in other camps during  the lockout, have returned and are  gradually     finding      employment.  Other mines will shortly be opening  and those at present working are  steadily increasing their forces, so  that in another month things ought  to be near their normal position. It  would be just as well for men from  other camps to make enquiries before going to the expense of coming  to the Slocan for employment, as  there is already an abundance of  material on hand.  Dr. Brouse is looking after the  smallpox case at Nakusp and has  taken stringent measures to prevent  the disease , spreading. Mrs. Mc-  Cully has but a mild, attack and it  is hojied soon to have her around.  In this and neighboring towns an  increasing number of sore arms testify to the precautionary measures  being taken. The Slocan has had a  hoodoo every season as yet, but it  is-hoped smallpox will not be its  burden this summer. -.  The relicf'of Ladysmith was celebrated here in a most patriotic manner. Flags and bunting were in  evidence everywhere. -On Thursday night the band turned out and  a huge bonfire was set off ou the  government square. Oom Paul  Kruger was burned in effigy to the  delight of the townspeople. Cheers  for the queen and her gallant soldiers were given and great enthusiasm prevailed. The affair wound  up with a dance in the Bosun Hall.  The force on the Bosun is gradually being increased and' the property is now ax hive of industry.  One carload of ore was shipped last  week and two more are rqady to go  out.      * '        r'v  On the Neglected group, adjoining the town^ what was thought lo  be a hanging wall was broken into, |  disclosing   three inches    of    solid  galena.  Work commenced Saturday on  the March Bird group, adjoining  the Molly Hughes. There is a promising lead on the property, showing a little ore on the surface.  -It is reported here that the Monitor group, at Three Forks, has been  sold to English parties for $120,000.  Other capitalists weie after it, but  their agent arrived two days too  late.  Options have been given on tho  Mollie Hughes and Lost Tiger  groups, the former on Goat mountain and the latter on Silver mountain, and both owned jn town. The  sums involved are substantial.  They will be placed on the British  market.      -  Creditors of the Comstock fizzle  on Four-mile creek are invited by  It is hoped to have the work beggn  as soon as the snow goes.  Next Monday night tho Nelson  Minstrels appear in the Bosun hall.  They are certain of a good crowd. ��  The force on the Bosun has been  increased to 31 men, almost all of  whom reside here.  Several of the Minnesota importations of the Payne mine have  "yumped" their "yobs."  The purchasers of the Monitor  group aie Messrs. Stace and Brock-  man, two English capitalists, who  are also interested in the Ajax  Fraction.  Las week's ore shipments totalled  up 410 tons. Soon they will be 1000  tons a week. Among the simpers  were the Payne 290 tons, Rambler  20, Last Chance 40, and Sunshine  20. The latter is the first from  that property in two years.  Work is to be resumed at the  Ruth at an early date. The new  mill will also be started up.  Ore is being shipped from the  Queen Be.ss this week.  During February tho Rambler  shipped 123 tons of ore. It is holding its monthly records well.  The forces on the Payne, Last  Chance, Ivanhoe, Surprise, Wakefield and Enterprise have all been  slightly increased.  rnrxxria_zxzx-_zxxxzxzxixzxixxx2xnxxx��xxzixxzxxxixxxzaxz_axzziixzzTXTtiizixxiixxzzzzzxcixxxzzzx2zzxzxzx^ txxxzx;  1 COLONIAL TROOPS UNDER GENERAL BRABANT CAIN _  Further Successes Near Dordrecht.  5 Dordrecht, March  0.���Following yesterday's success, general  3 Brabant again engaged the Boers today with advantage, holding the  position captured yesterday. There was some sharp fighting this  morning, the British losing five or six men and capturing the Boer  fort, thus vastly improving their position. The Boers fought tenaciously, contesting every inch of ground, but ultimately they  retreated suddenly, carrying off their guns and wagons. A mounted  force pursued them, but the result is not yet known.  jj British casualties during the last two days were" 12  or 13 killed  g and 30 wounded.   Boer losses unknown.  g Throughout arduous fighting aud  severe fatigue, the colonials  jj behaved splendidly.  -Xxx-cnarxxrtxx-txxxxxzx^___rx__zTxzzzTzzzixxxix_gxxx_gixrxxxixxizinzzzzxxxzxxixz_[zxzxTzzi :z__ixziixxzzxx__xxz:n_xzx_n  ��  S  S  NELSON,. LOCAL  NEWS.  official notice to send their accounts  to the liquidator at Vancouver.  The pack trains have been busy  during the week taking out .supplies, powder and rails to the various properties. The Marion laid in  a heavy bill.  The Hartney shipped its first car  of ore during the week.  The owners of the Capella, Goat  mountain, are to ship several, tonsv  of ore shortly which  he has taken  out during development this winter.  Renewed inquiries for properties'  are being made from the outside,  while the number of buyers in the  camp is increasing.  New Denver, March G.���[Special to The Tribune.]���Extensive  improvements are to be made at  the Hartney mine, which will place  it on a footing with some of tho  leading properties of the camp. A  large ore house is to be constructed  and the buukhouse enlarged to accommodate fifty men. As soon as  the machinery can be taken up a  compressor plant will be installed.  This will not be until the Silver  mountain wagon road is built, as  the cost will then be much less. No  more ore will be shipped at present, the management preferring to  wait for the road. The 'property  continues to develop well.  Supplies sufficient for three  months are being packed up to .the  Marion, so that development can  proceed without interruption when  the trail breaks up.  The need for the Silver mountain  wugon road is becoming moie apparent each day, both as a convenience to the operating mines and for  the benefit of the town generally.  Manager Burnett of the gas company has given a guarantee that  gas will be turned into the mains  tomorrow. The first step to be  taken is that of forcing the air out  of the mains by removing the plugs  and forcing a current of gas through.  To accomplish this requires a waste  of 25,000 feet of gas, as the company has several miles of pipes laid.  J. II. Ashdown, the Winnipeg  hardware man, made a mammoth  shipment yesterday. He sent out  forty carloads of goods with two  engines, all the cars bearing the  firm's name on big streamers.  Three carloads of the consignment  were for the Lawrence Hardware  Company.  Edward Peters of Nelson, has recorded the transfer to G. G. Peters  of Nelson, a sixth interest in the  Blue Quartz and Rover mineral  claims on Porcupine mountain, .the  Homestake Combination and No. 99  on the divide between Hall, Forty-  nine and Rover creeks, and a quarter in the Charmer and a third in  the Gold Bug on Copper creek.  John Mulholland, the belligerent  bus driver, was fined $20 and costs  with an option of two months imprisonment at hard labor for assaulting a fellow bus, driver last*  week on the city wharf. Magistrate Crease gave the defendant  ten days in which to settle the fine.  The fittings for the Imperial  Bank's new offices in the Burns  block have arrived from Winnipeg  and are being placed in position by  the Nelson Saw k Planing Mills. It  is understood that these fittings are  to bcj'cplacedjater on with more,  pfetentious furnishings. The bank  staff expect to be in tho new office  by the 20th instant. , j  The local militia officers received  a telegraphic messago from district  headquarters yesterday asking  when they desired the Maxim gun  instructor to come to Nelson. A.  reply was wired buck that ho would  be welcome at any time, and it is  probable a non.-com. from Esqui-  malt will be sent down within a  week or two.  "~" Two carloads of j)lant were shipped to the Ontario Powder Company's works last night. The works  are rapidly advancing to completion and within a few weeks the  firm will be turning out their fin-  Jshed product. The office in the  -Madden block is being fitted up  very comfortably.  P. Burns k Co. will probably use  steam to run their cold storage  plant.  Plans   are   being  four brick blocks on  and   the  outlook  is  other year of building activity.  Manager Lay of the Imperial  bank expects to be installed iu the  bank's new premises, in the Burns  block, by the 15th instant.  A small gang of in en and one  team, in charge of Archie McDonnell, will begin work on Front street  this afternoon.  Dan Brown, who built the late  road from Brooklyn to Cascade  City on the Columbia k Western  road, is in the city.  The work of placing Front street  in passable condition commences  today. City engineer McCuilch  will put a staff o�� ten  men and  prepared for  Baker street,  good for an-  four teams on the task, and this  will doubtless be increased in a day  or two. The gravel for the work  will be obtained from the bank  near the jail, aud it is estimated  that 600 yards will be required, as  the roadway is peculiarly soft and  spongy, the technical expression for  earth of this consistency being  "gumbo."  The gang of meu who are extending the outlet of the main sewer to  deep water near the C. P. R. docks  have laid some 120 feet of piping in  twenty-foot lengths, and are now  Avorking in 18 inches of water. It  will take another 200 feet to reach  the point where the bank shelves  off into deep water.  The month of March promises to  break all records in the direction of  inland revenue collections if business keeps up to the first week's  standard. From March 1st to the  5th the collector. F. W. Swannell,  took in $1300. This is the biggest  week's collections in the history of  the office.  Dr, Frank J. Ewing went over  the line of the Balfour road yesterday, and selected a site for his hospital at Nine-mile.�� Arrangements  for the erection of the building are  to be made today.

An amateur dramatic entertainment interspersed by songs and  recitations is being got up by K. P.  Whalley in aid of the Canadian  Patriotic Fund. The dramatic part  of tho program will consist of a  comedietta and a farce, and a thoroughly enjoyable evening may be  looked upon as assured.  . Fred Irvine, president of the Nelson Liberal-Conservative Association, has called a meeting of the  executive to bo held in the board of  trade rooms this afternoon at three  o'clock.  SKIRMISHING ROUND ABOUT  Ladysmith.  Ladysmith, March 3.���Three  regiments of cavalry, reconnoitring  northwards today, saw a body of  Boers behind Pepworth hill. Two  long trains, which were ready to  leave, promptly moved before the  troops reached them, ancl the Boers  blew up a culvert behind them as  they went. The British passed a  large body of Boers in the vicinity  of Pepworth. The Boers opened a  heavy rifle fire, tho British field  guns replying. The British did not  press the attack, and the Boer fire  ceased on tbe British retiring.  The Boer camp showed many evidences of the presence of women. *  An auction was held on things  brought from the Boer camp. A  bunch of grapes sold for 25 shillings;  a plate of tomatoes, 18 shillings; a  dozen matches, 18 shillings] a package of cigarettes, 25r shillings; 50  cigars, ��10,' and a quarter of a  pound of plug tobacco, 40 shillings.

Orange   River,, Cape    Colony,  March 0.���The recent British  vie- ,  toi;ies have had a wonderfully quieting, effect  upon  the  rebel  Dutch,  most of whom in the neighborhood  of Douglass are reported disheartened and about returning to  their  homes.   The    commando   dn    the  neighborhood    of   Brits town    has  been given carte blanche  by president Steyn  to "raise  as many recruits and to do as much damage  as    possible.

The plaintiff's claim was dismissed, and the defendant, Joseph  Maslouka, got judgment for $55,  and the defendant. Becker, for $125.  The next case was Sturgeon vs.  Hawley, iu which the plaintiff was  suing for tho board bills of some  men who had worked for Hawley,  and which, he alleged, the latter  had gone good for. The greater  part of the evidence was taken, but  his honor reserved judgment ou the  question of admitting evidence in  rebuttal regarding a witness' credibility.

He  has the quasi-support of the Victoria  Times,     Vancouver   World,  New Westminster Columbian, Rossland Miner, and Nanaimo Herald.  It is reported that he has secured  another lawyer (B.

There is just  a possibility   that   Josepn will be  able   to   make   combinations that  will result in  the return of a majority that will  follow his  lead in  the legislature. His opponents have  too many leaders, all ambitious to  be at the top.

' A well-  known printer of Toronto held for  years the highest office in the gift  of the International Typographical  Union.    Canadians hold responsible  offices    in   all    the    international  unions, and there is no feeling of  national jealousy in such organizations. .  Canadians are no less good  Canadians because of being members of these international organizations, and it is safe to say that  the   membership    of   the   several  miners' unions in British Columbia  will compare favorably with. a like  number of workingmen anywhere  in Canada in all that goes to make  up a good citizen.  ing it are told that thoy must  choose between the Liberal party,  which so far has-ignored the issue  completely; or the Conservative  party, which has pronounced in its  favor, but whose chief supporters  are the paid attorneys of the mine  managers who desire the. repeal of  the selfsame legislation. There is  no common interest between wage-  earners and professional politicians,  and it should occasion no surprise  if the wage-earners refuse to lie in  the bed which the politicians make  for them.  )-&-&> g^:g^ ���-^������gr-' ^ ST' ^^ ^^J-^00,' ___[**-<*'-  '_S>-_S��-  _________' ���-___!-___* *___���_���____ *_22^ *-__2__5' * -__5^ ���_________.  ~____-^'i  djjeeee e��e eee * &��%  Xlf  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.  -Tic Kootenay mine o\\ncrs and managers, ro-  Jircsenting' something like S'j.QOO.OOQ capital,  Who have boon'in the city for some time endeavoring to effect through the government a scttlo-  lnentof the difficulty ansiiigout ot the eight-  hour law, have left for home. Before leaving  the statement wa^gncn out Ui.it tho political  .light- an Kootenay would bo on ,1 he eight-hour  law ai far as the mine oviipis were concerned.  If. V. Tolmie, secretary of the mine on ners'asso  elation, has also left for Kootonay.  The above is from the Victoria  Colonist.   Although they may be  the owners or managers of millions  .-of   mining capital, how many  of  them   are able to control a vote  other tlian   their  own ?   The mine  owners  and  mine managers, with  but few exceptions, are disliked by  the business  men whom  they deal  with aud hated by the men  whom  they employ.   Thcse_miue_owners  and mine managers will undoubtedly try to elect men who will do  their bidding, but they will not succeed in a single riding in Kootenay.  The people of Kootenay do not care  to be considered more  hewers of  wood'and  drawers of water fora  job-lot of Americans and  old countrymen who for tho time happen to  manage   mines  iu   this  section of  Canada.       A ui__mahkahu��_j thing in connection with tiie approaching provincial elections i.s the unusual interest  which the lawyers aro evincing in  it. As a rule lawyers are always in  evidence when an election comes  round, but this time it is asserted  that in every constituency upon  the mainland some lawyer is being  boomed for nomination, and in  some constituencies there are three  and even four lawyers seeking  nomination.  Tub party managers, who advocate   the   introduction   of   federal  lines in provincial politics show an  utter disregard for the great mass  of the electors.   It matters not to  them if the great majority of the  people   are   interested   in    issues  which both "of the old political parties try to avoid ; they are' to be  .given the choice  of   only  one or  other of the two parties.    Take tho  matter of importing alien labor into  tiie province under contract, for instance. There     aro     quite     a  few   people    in    Kootenay     who  would     like     to     see     tho     im-  pdrtation   of   aliens   under ' contract  stopped ;   yet -if the    party  managers have   their   way   these  people will  only have  a choice between    the    Conservative    party,  which disregarded their wishes in  this respect altogether, or the Liberal party which enacted the legislation desired and then  refused to  enforce  it.     What  choice is thero  for people who desire~the���suppress  sion of alien importations?   Then  there is the eight-hour law.   There  is quite" a respectable majority of  the electors of Kootenay w ho desire  to see this legislation retained upon  the statute book.     They naturally  think that the  best   way   to  ensure   this     would   be     to    vote  for       the      government       which  enacted     it     and     enforced     it.  But again, the party managers step  in and say this cannot be done be-  because   the   province    is    to   be  divided upon  federal party lines.  Instead of supporting tho  government which enacted the legislation  desired those  interested in retain-  GROCERIES.

CJlark were intimate friends,  but an apparently never-ending enmity between them sprang up from  litigation  ovei some  water  rights  near Butte, in  which  the former  was worsted.    Then Chirk bccured  the    democratic    nomination    for  ".territorial delegate in congress, but,  it is averred, Avas defeated through  Daly's support being bestowed upon T. II. Carter (republican).    With  the   admission   of    Montana   into  statehood, ,Clark developed a senatorial bee, and along with major  Martin Maginniss, was elected as a  democrat   by  the divided   legislature.     W.  F.  Sanders   and T.  C.  Power were chosen by the republican legislature and seated by the  senate.    Four years later the democrats were successful in the legislative election and Clark'was made  the caucus nominee, but the so-called Daily faction bolted the noniination and a deadlock resulted.    Lee  Mantle (republican) was appointed  by govferuor Rickards, but the senate refused to scat him.    The next  legislature    was    republican    and  elected^, Lee Mantle and T. II. Carter, .the   former's   term   expiring  March 4 ltiAl.  Again was Clark put forth, the  democrats having a sweeping majority elected in 189S. It was proclaimed on all sides that Clark had  50 votes out of a democratic mem-  beiship of 72, oi a majoiity ovei  both republicans and Daly demo-  d'eCs Then came senator Whiteside's seubtttional exposme upon tho  jfiibt day of the meeting of the joint  assembly. Rising to a question of  pcisomil    pihilegrf,   he    produced  $30,000 in $1000 bills, stating that  they had been given to him by John  13. Wellcome for senators Clark,  Myers and himself and representative Garr in return for their votes  for W. A. Clark in his candidacy  for the United States senate. Clark  as a result received but two votes  in tho senate and five in the house,  instead of 150 on the first ballot, as  anticipated.  Before tho legislative and grand  jury investigation Whiteside testified that he accepted the money to  expose the alleged corrupt methods  being resorted to by Clark; but the  giand jury returned no indictment,  although declaring money was being  used  in  the  contest.    On the  sixteenth day and  17th ballot  of  the session Clark received 52 votes,  including eleven  republicans, who  declared  iu  justification   of   tlieir  action that Clark was a high protectionist and an expansionist, and  therefore as. much a republican as a  democrat.     In  the  meantime   the  seat of AArhiteside, who was elected  by one majority, was successfully  contested   by Geiger (republican).  Geiger voted for Clark.    The $30,-  000 was deposited with state treasurer Collins, who still has possession  of  it.     It  is  stated  that   senator  Chandler, when Mr. Collins exhibited the money iu Washington last  week, had it sent to the treasury  department for inspection, where it  was pronounced genuine.    Senator  Chandler was loath to believe that  votes were so valuable in Montana,  he said, with a smile.  Next came the Wellcome disbarment case which was instituted be-  f oi e the supreme court by attorney-  general Nolan and former senator  Whiteside. It lasted three weeks  and was hotly contested, Wellcome  being defended by somo of the  ablest attorneys in the state. It  was ehaiged that Wellcome, in his  capacity of manager of senator  Claik's candidacy, had, in buying  votes of legislatoi s, indulged in conduct unbecoming an attorney, but  beioie the tiial ended it was acknowledged by witnesses that'they  weie after   "laiger game"   or,  in  other words, they desired not so  much Wellcome's disbarment as  they did conclusive evidence against  Clark, to be made available at the  present hearing. By an unanimous  opinion, Wellcome was disbarred in  December last.  It was during this hearing by the  supreme court that associate justice  Hunt swore he was "approached"  four times by Dr. William Treacy  .(his family physician), and during  the course of these conversations'in  the doctor's office, was given to understand if the Wellcome case was  thrown out of court he could have  $100,000, which proffer was indignantly spurned. Later, the same  day, the doctor called at the house,  and, judge Hunt testified, again  pointed out a life of ease and a trip  abroad should the proposition be  accepted, incidentally referring to  the judge's poor health. Four times  the alleged offer was made and each  time rejected.  Attorney-general Nolan swore  that Dr. Treacy had offered him  $100,000, too, provided the proceedings against Wellcome were nolle  prosequied. Nolan went so far, he  testified, as to make an appointment with the doctor to receive the  money, bnt failed to keep the engagement.  Associate justice Pigott also believed an attempt was about to be  made to bribe him, which was forestalled by a threat to kill any one  who approached him with that  object.  Chief justice Brantly was made  the confidant of both his associates,  but no attempt was made to improperly influence his own actions  iu the matter, other than a verbal  suggestion.  The evidence of these distinguished jurists produced the most pio-  found sensation ever known in  Montana. For years charges of  bribery and corruption have been  ascribed to Daily by Clark and vice  versa in every political undertaking, until $1000 bills, a $1,000,000  campaign fund in behalf of Anaconda in the state capital contest, etc.,  were even known to school children,  but never before was the fountain  of justice attacked. And while Dr.  Treacy admits making the offer, ho  declares it was done in a joking  manner; bub as a disinteiested republican attorney remarked:  "The justices of the supreme  court and attorney-general, in the  possession of worldly goods, are all  poor men. I do not belie\e the of-  feis weie made in a joke, and in my  opinion a deliberate attempt to de  bauch our highest judicial tribunal  was made."  Chief justice Brantly, associate  justices Hunt and Pigott, aud attorney-general Nolan aie all men of  the highest probity, and whom  every resident of the state, except  political enemies, lcgaid with the  greatest esteem aud confidence.  Brantly tmd Hunt are both republicans, Awhile Pigott is a democrat.  Judge Hunt's father was secretary  of the navy in Garfield's cabinet.  Dr. Treacy, the alleged go-between,  is one of the most prominent physicians in the state, and a republican  in politics.

A third interest in the Snow Boy  and Cham]Dlain mineral claims ' on  Fawn creek has been transferred  [ by Ned Roy of Rossland to Ernest  Latulippi and Louis Taillifer of the  same place. The consideration was  $100.  Jacob Dover, the leading jeweler  of Kootenay, does not propose to  allow any of his competitors to  undersell him. He now purchases all  goods direct from the manufacturers, wliich enables him to quote the  same prices as the jewellers of the  east.  Edward Mobbs has made application for a liquor license on the Balfour construction work. He proposes to locate a hotel near the end  of the line.  Since the hook and ladder truck  was placed in the fire hall the  front end of the wagon has sagged  down four inches below the normal  level.
