INTRIGUES AND COUNTER INTRIGUES OCCUPY THE  .7}  Attention of Pocket Politicians at Victoria.  Yktokia, March I [Special to The Tribune.]���"When Joe Martin  left here Friday for Vancouver he went fresh from negotiations with  members of the Turner party Avhosc aid he sought in fixing up a government. In Vancouver, howevor, he has been received Avith open  arms by the Liberal executive and no doubt the idea of a Turner  coalition is now abandoned. Tho meeting of the Vancouver Liberal  executive last eA'cning endorsed Martin'.s policy as enunciated to them  and pledged him their support. The meeting also at Martin'.s instance  passed a resolution denouncing tho conduct of the in embers toAvards  the lieutenant-governor at the prorogation of the house. Ilibbert  Tupper now .seeks to avoid the introduction of party lines by a union  of the Turner and Cotton interests against Martin, ancl for the dismissal of the lieutenant-governor, bub Charles Wilson, who has re-  p-$ cently assumed tbe leadership of the Conservatives for provincial af-  Lfairs, insists that they Avill conduct the campaign on federal party  lines.  VANCOUVER LIBERALS WILL  Support Joa Martin.  Vancouver, March li.���At a large  meeting of the executive of the  Vancouver Liberal Association at  ���which also Avero present a considerable number of prominent avcII-  known Liberals of the city aud  outside points, the following resolutions were carried:  Moved by Charles Woodward,  seconded by W. J. McWilliams and  resolved, that Ave, the members of  the executive of the Liberal Assoei-  tion of Vancouver and other Liberals hereby endorse the policy of the  lion. Joseph Mar Lin, premier of the  province of British Columbia, as  enunciated by him to this meeting  this evening aud Ave pledge ourselves to accord him our support.  A motion to adjourn the debate  on a question of adopting straight  party lutes" in "the approaching contest for a Aveek was lost by an overwhelming majority,  Mo\rcd by Alex McPhillips, seconded by A. M. Tyson  and  res>olvcd,  that this meeting hereby records its  emphatic protest against  the  unseemly behaviour of the people's  representatives   in  the   provincial  ! legislature towards  his  honor, the  lieutenant-governor, on the occasion  of the prorogation of the house  of  assembly, ancl  expresses   its sympathy with his honor and  the  be-  i lief that -ho acted  iu   the 'trying  i moment iu a faithful and strictly  j constitutional manner and for the  [ best interests of the province.  This resolution Avas carried with-  | out a dissenting voice, after prem-  I ier Martin, had thoroughly cx-  i plained all the circumstances which  led up to the prorogation ancl  I incidents connected therewith.  the  .Roberts Preparing to Advance.  New York, March 2.���Mr. Isaac  _i\T. Ford_cabling the__Tribmie_ from.  ' London at C o'clock this morning on  the South African AA'ar situation  says: "Dr. Leyds denies that he  has received auy news to the elTect  that the siege of Mafeking has been  raised by the Boers or that Bloem-  fontcin has been occupied by the  British, (.'oneral Roberts is at Os-  fontein preparing to continue his  advance eastward. It is generally"  understood that his first objective  point will bo Bloemfontein, but he  keeps hit. own counsel 'and his plan  of operations may prove lobe quite  different from that fixed upon by  popular opinion. Continental critics continue to give credit to general Roberts for his stiategieal skill,  but do not recognize any particular  .merit in the work of Buller or  White."    ;   The Boers' Dispositions.  Bi.iOEMii'OXTBiiV. Orange ' Free  State, Friday, March 2���Via Lorenzo Marquess, March 3.���The federals have resolved to abandon the  ' territory around Ileusburg, and the  retreat has been effected under the  protection of mounted burghers.  It is officially announced that on  Friday general Cronje, with from  2000 to a000 men, surrendered owing to scarcity of food and ammunition. Tho president (Kruger) is  issuing a stirring addicss to the  burghers in Natal, avIio aro falling  back on Biggar&berg. The president will return to Pretoria on  Sunday.   ^   Canadian Artillery for tho Front.  Capj-.toavn, March I.��� The Canadian arlilleiy his just started for  the ^oiit. The loyalists gave them  an ovation.  HOW BOWDEN COT AWAY  With The Hall Mines' Cash.  H. II. Bowden, formerly of the  Hall Mines clerical staff, is fleeing  from justice with twenty-seven hundred odd dollars of the company's  .money. The money is the proceeds  of tho checks Avhich ho had heen  entrusted Avith to cash, one for  $2100 and one for $000. The iirst  Avas to pay time checks for the men  aud the second was for the amount  of the provincial poll tax collected  by the company from its employees.  Bowden cashed them both and  pocketed the money, and, as he had  charge of the books as well as the  cash draAArer, the deficit AA'as not  noticed i'or seA'eral days.  Last Friday Aveek ho asked for a  few days' leave  of absence  on account of his health, saying  he wag  going   to   Spokane.      lie did' not  start at once, however, and on Sunday he was yory sick as a result of  over-indulgence iu liquor, one of'his  comrades iu tiie office attending to  him.      He   Avas   not  missed   until  /Tuesday morning, when a man Avas  scut to his  cottage, as he did not  appear at the office at tho usual  time.    Everything AA'as left as if he  had just stepped out for a moment.  His breakfast things Avere left, half-  Avashed.     His   rubbers,   overshoes  and apparently all his clothes Avere  there.      His   grip  AA'as there, and  oven   his   tooth   brush   and   hair  brushes wore in their usual places.  The    police    Avere    communicated  with, but nothing could .be learned  of his movements since the day before (Monday)  after  he had taken  lunch at the Hume hotel.   The conductors, pursers and officials on the  trains    and.  boats    running   out  of Nelson Avere questioned, but none  of them had noticed  anyone ans-  Avering BoAA'den's description, and  it _was _fchought_ that   possibly, he  AA-as lying low somewhoro in toAvn.  Some of his friends Avho Avere not  in possession of all the. facts went  so  far  as  to assert   that   he  had  fallen a victim to foul play.  ' The enquiry was, however, kept  up and on Friday evening it transpired that Bowden  had after all  left for Spokane on Tuesday morning.    Immediate steps were taken  to follow him, and  tho  authorities  are confident of locating  him and  soon effecting his arrest"   '  There AA'ere all sorts of rumors  afloat yesterday and Saturday, some  oven asserting that lie had beeu arrested in Seattle. All these rumors, however, are without foundation, ancl, up till yesterday evening  nothing definite Avas knoAvn here  beyond the .fact of his arrival in  Spokane,  BoAvdeu had been in the employ  of the Hall Mines Company for  three years, and AA'as highly esteemed and implicitly trusted by  the management of the company.  No reason is assigned for his act  except that he knew that his engagement with the company Avould  terminate on the 15th instant oav-  ing to the closing doAvn of the Ilali  Mines. So far- as can be learned he  had practically no debts in Nelson,  only OAA'ing $15 for rent and a balance on his furniture to D. McArthur & Co. of $25. The sheriff has  taken posscssson of his effects on  behalf of his landlord on account of  tho rout duo him, and the Hall  Mines Company has issued a writ  against him in the supremo court  for the amount Avhich he i.s short.  BoAvden has ji\-ed in the Avest for  OA'er fifteen years and formerly resided in Calgary and Winnipeg,  SOUTH AFRICAN SITUATION  Reviewed for tha Week.  New Yokk, March 4.���In his  cable review of the South African  Avar situation, Mr. Isaac N. Ford iu  a dispatch filed at London at 1  o'clock this morning says: "There  is no confirmation from Lorenzo  Marquez of the rumor that president Kruger has joined president  Steyn and is on tho point of opening negotiations for peace.' The  Times in its afternoon edition yesterday announced that president  Kruger had left Pretoria for an unknown destination and that it was  conjectured that a conference betAveen the presidents of the two republics would take place. . There  Avas no official information respecting overtures for peace. Members  of parliament Avere not disposed to  attach importance to the rumor  and military men explained that  the probable object of tho presidential conference AA'as the adoption of  measures of defence agaiust the advance of lord Roberts' army.  Bloemfontein cannot be defended,  but there are lines of hills at the  Vet and Valsh rivers where a  strong stand can be made and the  passage of the Vaal river can be  contested on the way to Pretoria.  The-Dutch commandoes cannot be  massed - under a single leadership  Avithout a direct agreement between  Kruger and Steyn.  It is not believed in influential  circles here that the United States  government will be asked by the  Transvaal and Free State to make  approaches to Great Britain in the  direction of peace, since Kruger aud  Steyn are. more likely to avail  themselves of the seiwices of Hof-  meyer and Schreiner. The intervening of Germany is as unlikely  as that of France. It is believed in  diplomatic circles that the German  emperor AA'as among the first to send  congratulations to the queen' on the  surrender of Cronje's forces and the  relief of Ladysmith. He sympathizes, with England and has done  so throughout the Avar. Cecil  Rhodes' visit to Berlin last spring,  when the emperor displayed a remarkable knoAvledge of the details  of railway .construction, was not  Avithout effect and the queen's influence over her grandson has been  strongly exercised. A great lady  of Lhe German court, formerly maid  of honor to the empress Frederick,  is authority for the statement that  the queen is the only' person in  .Europe of whom the emperor stands  in awe. She alone addresses him  as."Willie" and is most affectionate  in her treatment of him as a favorite grandson.  There is a sudden shrinkage of  news, from the seat of Avar. Supplies are moving rapidly into Ladysmith and general Buller's army is  resting from its labors until orders  can be received from general Roberts respecting future operations.  Pathetic accounts of general White's-  emotion when lord Dundonald's  troopers arrived in Ladysmith still  appear in print.  The railway to Colenso will re-  require extensive repairs.  Three British officers belonging  to White's and Buller's forces have  escaped from Pretoria, and ten soldiers have also eluded pursuit. *  . The Colesburg'district has been  entirely abandoned by the Boers  and general Clements' scouts aro  uoav near tho Orange river.  General Gatacre'.s forces are moving toward Stormberg and there  has been renewed skirmishing near  Dordrecht. Fighting is reported to  be imminent in the Free State on  the line of general Roberts' advance  but the extent of the Dutch concentration is unknown.  ance of the men tore working on  the right of A\'ay, four miles of  AA'hich has been cleared up to date.

A number of the best men lately  employed at the-Silver King mine  have secured work at the,- Lo Roi  mine, Rossland. It is said that a  contract has been let by the Le Roi  management for several months'  diamond-drill exploration. If this  is true the Le Roi people are hunting for ore instead of cheap foreign  labor.         , .  JOUBERT MAY MAKE A STAND  THE RELIEF OF LADYSMITH  At Abraham's;Nek.  London, March 5.���Asdispatch to  the Times from Osfontein dated  March 2nd, dilates upon the "increasing difficulty of telegraphing  as the army advances through the  enemy's country." The correspondent says: "Forage for horses is  almost unobtainable on the journey.  The Avhereabouts of the enemy is  not exactly knoAvn, but the more  mobile of the commandoes arc  hovering around our auny. We  anticipate opposition at Abraham's  Nek, three niiles* east of Paardeberg  Avhere general Joubert is 'reported  as collecting a force from the whole  of the Lardy smith "forces, and <tln>  northeastern Freo Staters. *  "President Steyn arrived at the I  Boer camp at Abraham'^, Kraal, on  the morning of February-17th, and  harangued the burghers, exhorting  them to remember Majuba hill and  to relieve Cronje."  NELSON LOCAL NEWS.  Four electric flash lights have  been purchased from S. H. Seaney,  the local agent, for the use of the  police force. The lamps are used  as dark lanterns, and consist of a  small battory and incandescent  lamps Avith a poAverful reflector, the  the Avhole neatly encased in a tAVo-  incli cylinder and finished in black  morocco leather. The flashlight is  turned on by pressure from the  hand and the battery Avill run for  eight hours Avithout recharging.  When not in use the cylinder is  carried in the pocket where it takes  up but little space.  From -100 to 450 men are at work  today along the line of the Balfour  extension, yet operations are practically   only   under   Avay    at   one  Looking Forward.  A woiking miner AVrites to The  Tribune as follows. "The fact that  the   sum   of   $154    Avas    donated  towards the Mansion House Fund  by some 40 men  employed  at the  Granite and Poorraan  mines shoAvs  that if the ordinary Canadian Avork-  ingman cannot get  a chance to do  some fighting he is perfectly Avilling  to go down in his jeans and give up  his   hard-earned   shekels   towards  the support of the widows, and orphans of   the braA-c   felloAvs who  have laid doAA'u their lives in South  -Africa for the glory-of���the empire.  Here in British  Columbia Ave  have  the cream and essence, of Canadian  manhood.      Probably   the   Nelson  Miner can tell us Avhere  our  patriotic Canadians Avill be Avhen  our  mines are filled Avith men like those  recently   imported    by   tlio   mine  managers of the Slocan, men Avho  neither understand   our   language  nor our civilization-   Probably it is  the intention  of the Slocan  mine  managers, Avith   the aid of subsidized  newspaper.*,  to civilize and  Chribtiani/.c these  imported aliens,  and, in time, to make good   citizens  of   them.      But   even   avIich   thi-.>  Christianizing   and   civilizing  process has been   effected, how   will  these strangers compare Avith tho  native-born   Canadians ;���compare,  for instance, Avith  those now employed at captain Duncan's mines  on Eagle creek?"  Only Slightly Wounded,  Montreal, March 4.���Messages  AA'ere received from tAvo members of  the Canadian contingent today.  Major Pelleticr cabled his father,  speaker Pelleticr of the senate:  "Slightly Avounded iu the arm, nothing to fear." C. N. Armstrong received the folloAving cable from his  son, lieutenant Armstrong: "Only a  slight scratch, feeling splendid."  Advance into Zululand.  Dur wax, Friday, March 2.���Yesterday a number of horses Avere  sent into Zululand with the object  of marching a British force through  Zululand and intercepting the Boers  north of Biggarsberg.    A  complete  Came Quito Unexpectedly.  DuuiiA.v, March 2.���Correspondents avIio haA-e returned hero from  Ladysmith say the relief came unexpectedly. At noon on Tuesday  tho firing of general Buller's army  seemed to recede instead of approach, and the garrison AA'as consequently depressed. E\-eiybody  was startled to hear the garrison's  4.7 gun firing. It had not been  used much of late, owing to the  diminishing ammunition.  On hurrying out it Avas found  that tho Boers Avere trying to remove the big gun on Bulwana Hill  by the erection of a derrick. This  proved that something extraordinary AA'as happening, The other garrison guns then directed their fire  on Bulwana Hill with the result  that the Boers Avere compelled to  abandon the attempt Avith the derrick. Later on they placed the gun  on a Avagou, which capsized in a  donga.  During the afternoon, Avhenever  the Boers were seen approaching,  the British resumed the shelling of  Bulwana Hill. About four o'clock  a terrific thunder storm broke over  the toAvn, just after a message had  been heliographed from Wagon  Hill that the Boers were in full retreat. Other officers said they believed they could descry British  cavalry, but most people supposed  that the Avish was father to the  thought.  As soon as the storm ceased, the  British guns reopened on Bul\Arana  Hill, gradually concentrating the  fire on the left and driving the  Boers before them Avith the object  of preventing the enemy from hampering any British approach. Au  hour later a party of British horsemen could be seen crossing tho fiat  below Bulwana Hill at a distance of some miles.- It is  impossible to describe the excite-  ment and enthusiasm among the  troops that followed. Most of the  toAvnspeople had been driven into  their houses by the storm and did  nob learn the good iicavs uutil later.  The storm broke out again at seven  o'clock in the evening and con-  4tinued until two the next morning.  It must haA'e seriously hampered  the retreating Boers., The British  gunners kept up a -sharp Avatch to  prevent any further attempt to remove the Bulwana gun. The British naA'al gun Avas fired at intervals  thioughout the uiglit and iu the  morning a force Avas sent out to  look after the gun and to occupy  Bulwana Hill.  Lord Dundonald's force' went  after 'the retreating Boers Avhile  four thousand of the besc men of  the garrison Avent toward. Elands-  laagte iu the hope of being able to  cut off the enemy.  BOERS ARE BEING STEADILY DRIVEN BACK OUT OF  Cape Colony Into the Free State.  Dordrecht, Cape Colony, Sunday, March 4.-0 a. m.���General  Brabant's colonial division, after a night's march, is now attacking  the Boers in a strong position at Labuschagnes' Nek, on tho road  from Dordrecht to Jamestown.  Dorprkcht, Capo Colony, March 4.���Later���The engagement is  proceeding Avith great vigor and tho Boers are gradually retiring before the British shell fire from their positions. A heavy rifle fire is  being exchanged where tho British are engaging the Boers on the  right flank, so that the Boers have no big guns in action.  Evening.���General Brabant's advance today Avas satisfactory.  After marching and bivouacking OA'er night the force reached the  strong entrenched positions wliich they occupied and now hold, the  the Boers being on the opposite hill. The British will remain tonight  in the captured positions, although the Boers brought tAvo guns into  action and made determined efforts to retake them. The British  losses are six killed and eighteen AA'ounded.  Coleswerg, Cape Colony, March 4.���A reconnaissance Avith two  troops of Australians and tAA'o guns found the AA'agon bridge over the  Orange river intact. Fifty Boers on the other side were taken by  surprise aud the British galloped to the laager some miles on the  Free State side.  Price's command has moved seven miles north of Colesberg.

St. Jonxs, Newfoundland, March  '1.���The cabinet of sir James Winter  Avill probably resign A\ithin the  next 18 hours. The picmicr has  thus far been unable to make any  combination that Avould enable  him to carry on the government  purposes during the pending session  of tlio legislature. It is believed  that Mr. Bond Avill be unable to  form a ministry from the Opposition ranks. A general election is  therefore almost inevitable in May.  BOERS WILL LIKELY KEEP  t   >���  On the Defensive.  London, March 4.-4:50 a. m.���  Her majesty has abandoned her intended visit to the Italian Riviera  and has decided to remain home.  Her decision to give up her customary spring holiday is accounted another proof of her deep interest and  devotion to the AA'elfare of her people. On Thursday she AA'ill come to  London for a bi;ief visit, remaining  until Saturday, and she will undoubtedly receive a splendid ovation. Her heartfelt- dispatches to  the generals > in the field and her  visit to Netley hospital-have greatly endeared her to her people. -  Beyond the signs of a general retreat of the Boers throughout Cape  Colony, there is little 'news from  the front: Lord Roberts, in his dispatches to the Avar office thus far  published, says little, but he undoubtedly is active in some direction. The' Onsiand, the organ of  the Afrikander Bund, says: "The  Boers Avill iioav confine themselves  to tho defensive, abandoning an  offensive policy."  Abraham's Kraal, as sIioavii in  the Avar oflicc' maps, is a group of  three kopjes situated at tho junction of Kaal Spruit Avith Modder  river. It is a natural point of concentration Avhich the Boers could  make exceedingly strong, but after  the proofs of the mobility of the  army of lord Roberts, it may  be doubted Avhether they aa^iII make  a really serious attempt to bar his  adA'auce there.  A noticeable feature of all the  recent preparations at the theatre  of Avar has been the active employment of colonial forces, Avhich i.s in  marked contrast Avith the policy  adopted at tho beginning of tho  Avar. The Australian colonics have  decided to provide the 2500 men  Mr. Chamberlain recently asked  for.  ft is now seen how near Ladysmith Avas, to sfarA-ation and the  exhaustion of ammunition. The  town could hardly have blood an--  other Boer assault or held out much  longer. The Daily News has a dispatch from Lady-smith which says  that the supplies on hand were only  enough to provide rations for four  days. ��� Tho tenvn might have held  out another Aveek, but scarcely beyond that.  Montreal Cooling Down.  Montreal, March 1.���Rioting  AA'as feaied last night and details of  all tho local regiments were on  duty iu the drill shed, but their  serA'ices Avere not called upon.  There Avere a ftnv isolated fights  Avhich the police looked after. A  procession from Point St. Charles  marched through the streets singing patriotic songs, but there Avere  no disturbances. A big patriotic  meeting was held in the M. A. A. A.  building Avhere resolutions congratulating the British forces tho  Canadian contingent and lord  Strathcona were passed.  Rhodes Going to England.  Capbtoavx, March 4. ��� Cecil  Rhodes is hero and expects to sail  for England Wednesday.  ROBERTS' SUCCESS STOPS  '  i  - The Critics' Mouths.  London,    March    4.���Whatever  may be the  financial procedure* or  political plans of the ministers, lord  Roberts has cleared the situation  for them at home as Avell as abroad.  He   has   silenced    Alfred   Ilarins-  Avorth's   guns,   turned   lord   Rose-  bery's   flank   and    entrapped   the  peace, party as completely' as he did  Cronje in his laager at the bottom  of the riA'er.    There is no more gossip about the reorganization of tho  cabinet^ and the  military Avriters,  whose dispirited complaints of ministerial incapacity a vere. considered  of vital  importance a feAV weeks  ago, are now charged Avith making  much ado about  nothing,     British  imperialism   lias   received    a   tremendous impulse and the meetings J  of the peace party at  Exeter Hall  are broken up by a mob of patriots  from  the Strand.      The   ministry  AA'hich put-"Bobs" iu  Lhe saddle, is  no longer under obligations to make  ^ any defense or apology, io  has  tho  country behind it  ancl  can  appeal  Avith confidence for popular support  on the single issue Of the  unity  of  the empire.   The mhmtsrs will do  this if they are Avell advised rather  than Avait for a settlement of the  South African  question after tho  Avar- is ended and Pandora's  box is  opened.       Berliner Post is Politic.  _Bbri.lv, March ���4. -The - semiofficial Berliner Post in a strong  article today again begs the Anglo-  phobe press to discontinue the practice of abusing English statesmen,  generals and British enterprises  generally, declaring thin "does more  harm than some suppose." The  Post asserts on the authority of a  private letter from the Transvaal  received at Hamburg, that the Boer  republic on January 15th had i^ued  altogether 1(1, .100 identification  card1- to Boers in the field. The  writer of the letter claims that these  figures represent tho total federal  forces at the time. ,  Criqualand Kehels.

DON'T PAY TWO PRICES  for your clothing: *   *  Tub Nelson Miner is   in a   dilemma.   It has committed  itself to  the introduction  of party lines in  provincial   politics.      In   such   an  event it would be obliged to support the Conservative candidates.  This Avould mean swallo\Aring the  eight-hour  laAV,  Avhich  tho   Miner  has repeatedly denounced   as the  cause   of all evil.     Thus circumstanced, the Miner seeks to divert  attention from   itself.   It   accuses  The Tbihune of truckling to Joseph  Martin while his star AA'as in the  ascendant, and AA'ith  reviling him  Avhen   his   fortunes  sank.     Those  who are familiar Avith The Tribune  knoAV that it differs from the Miner  in that it never truckles to any individual or to any party. It refused to  denounce Joseph Martin unheard;  but AA'hen the matter resolved itself  into a choice of the iudiA'idual Martin  or  the  Semlin  government  it  dropped Martin.    Iu   vieAV of the  Miner's recent homily on independence it may be presumed that the  Miner is no longer in receipt of its  subsidy of fifty dollars per month  to abuse the men  who framed the  eight-hour law, as   Avell   as those  who endeavored to observe it after  it was law.  jg.00.fi*.

Tho Nelson Miner i.s mentioned  as.  having  received only $7.35, which beggarly  sum is  probably  regarded  as the  value of that paper's support to the  party.    Js it any wonder that the  Miner is wavering in its support of  a party to  which the editor has  acknowledged a life-long allegiance ?  Is it surprising that our esteemed  contemporary is gradually adopting the somewhat erratic  political  ethics of its patron saints���ex-alderman   Beer   and   Hugh Sutherland?   The Tuidlw Edoes not entertain a very exalted  opinion of  the Miner's methods, but it does  believe that $7.75 i.s scarcely commensurate with the value of the  goooN delivered. Indeed, $0 would  have been little enough, and tho  fact that it did not reach the latter  sum might be taken as conclusive  evidence that the influence at Ottawa of the Nelson end of the  "machine" is, uot as strong as it  should be.  The Conservatives of Revelstoke,  so it is  reported,  havo  nominated  Charles   Wilson, lawyer,   of Vancouver, as tlieir candidate.    This Is  a mistake, and Mr. Wilson will commit  a  blunder   if he  accepts  the  nomination.    The  interests  of the  Kovelstoke riding of West Kootenay aro too important to be turned  over to the care of a non-resident,  nnd if Mr. Wilson  would  be   the  loader of a party he must first win  his .spurs at his own home���Van-  -Josei'ii Martin does not propose  to remain very long without a following.   If the press  reports  can  be relied upon he has got the executive of the Liberal Association of  Vancouver in line aud has secured  an endorsement for himself and his  policy.   This will no doubt tend to  complicate" matters in 'Vancouver.  The city was represented in the  last legislature   by F.  C. Cotton,  who became leader of the Semlin  party after the government's dismissal, and who is opposed to party  lines.      The senior representative  was   Charles Tisdall,* a prominent  provincial Conservative, who will  have to decide between the finding  of the Conservative convention and  the Semlin  caucus as to whether  federal party lines shall be recog-  JlL^edoii not.     Vancouver's  third  representative was Macpherson, the  labor leader, who before the last  session was convened was said  to  be   wavering    as   to   whether   he  should give his allegiance to Semlin  or Martin.     Macpherson is also a  prominent   Liberal.      The fourth  member was Martin himself.    The  general opinion is that Martin will  contest one of the Vancouver sweats  and secure all the support ho can  from   the Liberal   party.     Cotton  will be in   tho field as a Conservative   opposed   to _ federal   lines.  There   then    remains   the    labor  and   the   Conservative parties   to  be _ considered.      This    confusion  may account for the leader of the  provincial    Conservatives���Charles  Wilson���seeking a nomination at  Hcvelatoko instead of in his home  constituency���Vancouver.  The Kootenaian of Kaslo does  not hesitate to publish baldheaded  untruths regarding the reputed  editor and manager of this paper.  It says : "If the manager of The  " Tribune will wait until a blue  " book now under preparation at  " Ottawa is published, he will prob-  ���' ably see himself officially describ-  " ed as an individual who tele-  " graphed statements iu regard to  " the labor trouble to the govcrn-  " ment and then shirked appear-  " ance before tho commission ap-  " pointed to enquire into his allega-  " tions.

Roberts having  had  full, power to  deal with matters  of this' Jkind   as  he   may   think     right.        General  Tuekor has'much South .Afi iciui experience, as lie  was  with  his. regiment, the old 30th, all through the  Zulu war, and subsequently in Pretoria, in the days of  the brief annexation of the Transvaal.    lie is a  very practical, rough and ready soldier.    I have been  reminded of his  common   sense   treatment   of   his  regiment  when   returning  from   a  long exile in Zululand  and  marching towards Pretoria,  He was met by lord Wolseley,  who was ou his way to the Boer  capital, and asked for a biuail escort of llve-and-tweuty or fifty  "steady, sober" men:-"Jlavcu't-got"  them in the regiment, sir," answered  Tucker, "not at this moment."  -"What he meant,was soon seen. Ou  approaching Pretoria he halted a  few'miles out, encamped the i(3gi-  ment, and sent into town for sutlers  and camp followers, with  drink and so forth, and gave  his men three days of uninterrupted "enjoyment," as they  thought. Wheu they had spent ail  their arrears of pay, and had generally pulled themselves together,'  he resumed his march, aiul his  whole regiment was now steady  and sober enough to have provided  lord "Wolsuley's escort four or five  times over. It should bo added  that general Tucker is of, the old  school, that of the army of Fland  ers, which swore. He has a plentiful supply of strong language when  occasion need*.  Succumbed to Heat.  The news has reached here that  Mr. (Joi'don Corbould of New Westminster, died a few weeks since iu  Pretoria. He was a member of the  first Canadian contingent', and dnr--  iug a march he, and soma others  were overcome by the fatigue and  heat of a. long march." They were  completely exhausted - ami' were  taken prisoners by the Boers aud  subsequently were prisoner* of war  at Pretoria. Mr, Corbould was so  sickfiom the effects of the heat  and marching lhat he was put in  tin1 hospital, where lie died, wile  was a son of Gordon hi.'Corbould,  fornieily a member of the provincial pai liaiuent from New Westminster. The unfortunate young man  was A'ery frail physically. As soon  as the call for troops came ho was  among the fitsfc to volunteer.' At  first he was iejected as not physically fit for a soldier, but influence  was^brought to bear and he was accepted.  BUSINESS   MENTION.

The patient will,  under ordinary circumstances, be  able to leave the hospital in a week,  but the regulations provide that he  shall be detained for a full week  after all danger of contagion has  passed.  William Burns, inspector, of  schools, has reopened his office in  the Central school, and may be  found there daily. He states that  throughout the district the school  attendance has fallen olf materially  during recent weeks, owing to general vaccination. The teachers frequently have children taken ill in  tbe schoolroom through exposing  themselves too soon after undergoing the operation. He believes that  the attendance will be normal  within a short time.  Dr. Rose, house physician at the  general hospital, has compiled his  annual report for submission to the  meeting of directors to be held  shortly. From this it appeal's that  out of 316 patients treated during  the year only four died, tho percentage being 2. Thirty typhoid  cases were handled -without a single death, a result which is highly  gratifying to the staff. The patients for the year are classified as  follows: Paying. 101; C. P. It.  steamers, 47; Ymir Gold Mining  Company, 27; city charity, 22; ordinary charity, 19; and the total  number of days' treatment was  3370. The medical cases numbered  132, and the surgical 7G. Twenty-  eight operations requiring anaesthesia were conducted Avithout a  death. Dr. Rose conveys the  thanks of himself and staff to the  Ladies' Hospital Aid Society and  the city clergymen for courteous  co-operation and assistance.  William Roberts has applied for  a renewal of his liquor license for  the premises known as the Florence  Park hotel near the city. The application will be considered at a  meeting of the commissioners on  the 17th instant.  Half-a-dozen . mechanics' liens  have been filed against the Noonday mining company, tho . aggregate claims being some $1500.  An appeal to the supreme court  of Canada has been entered in the  case of Copelen vs. Gallaghan,  which involves the rights of the  Joker Fraction and Cody Fraction  as against the Cube Lode claim. In  this case the trial the judge gave  judgment in favor of Copelen, but  on appeal the decision was reversed.  This was followed by a seizure of  the property for costs as against  Copelen, the costs amounting to  $1703. The claims were advertised  for sale, but Copelen has paid the  costs and takenI>'au' appeal as  above.  The county court opens this  morning before judge Forin. Before the civil docket is taken up his  honor will try Clayborne, the inau  committed for trial by magistrate  Crease ou Saturday. The charge  against Clayborne is that he was  implicated in the disappearance of  $130 lost by Edward Uaskin. If  Clayborne, on arraignment, elects  for a speedy tiial the case will probably be proceeded with at once.  An unique documeut is on exhibition at the Cabinet cigar store in  the shape of a five cent check issued by the C. P.-R. Frank Summers, who is employed at tho depot,  was a nickel short in a recent pay,  and the amount was forwarded to  him later, a check similar in every  respect to one which would be issued for a thousand times as great,  being drawn to cover  the amount.  A pleasant social gathering took  place last night at the residence of  Dr. LaBau, where a party of intimate friends gathered to celebrate  the doctor's birthday.
