 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON":  THURSDAY MOKNENG, MARCH 15 3900.  PRICE FIYE CENTS.  ROSSLAND LABOR TROUBLES  Joe Martin's Letters.  Victoria, March I 1 ���[Special to  Tho Tribune].���Smith Curtis said  at Vancouver today that the Martin cabinet was expected to be complete in a few days. Curtis is on  ]iis way to Kootenay to discuss the  eight-hour law with the parties  affected.  The correspondence between Mar-  ��� tin and mayor Goodeve and magistrate Boultbec, of Kossland, is published today. Martin calls them  down for swearing in "Special constables for the mines without consulting the attorney-general's department, and in a letter to Boult-  bee of today's date, says:  "[ consider it the duty of the  government to protect proper' y,  aud think that the proper course  for the mine owners to havo pursued Avas to have brought the  state of affairs referred to by you  to the attention of the government.  So far as I am concerned, in my  position of attorney-general I do  not intend to allow the administration of justice to be carried on by  American detective agencies.  "I think that the circumstance  has beeu very unfortunate indeed,  and is likely to much prejudice the  administration of justice in the  piovince. 1 hope this is tho last  occasion that in this province it  will be necessary to deal with an  attempt to influence matters  through armed men, furnished by  detective agencies in the maimer so  - Jiiuch practiced and so very much  to be deplored in the republic to  "the south of us."  A caustic letter dispatched today  also to mayor Goodeve, concludes  as follows:  "If, on tho other hand any attempt is made by any person to  frighten the public by demonstrations of this kind, not for the purpose of protecting property, and  not from any bona fide fear of vib-  leneo, but for an ulterior motive,  such an attempt should meet, with  no countenance from those y\ ho arc  There aro many charges of treason.  Nearly all tho residents were wearing mourning as the Roshof commando lost 200 men at the battle of  Belmont. A great popular demonstration took place here on the  receipt of the news that Bloemfontein had been occupied by the  Biitish. AN the church bells were  rung, and a procession headed-by  tho Union Jack went to Government House where sir Alfred Milner  made his acknowledgement. Tho  demonstrators sang "God Save the  Queen," and then paraded through  the principal streets cheering and  singing patiiotic songs.  ROSSLAND'S    CONSTABLES  entrusted with the- administration  of justice in the province.'"  ' KIPLING HAS HIT THE MARK  , The Eebels Flourish.  Nnw York, March 1-J.���The first  woi d from'Rudyard Kipling  since  he went  to,South  Africa  will be  printed 'in   this  month's   issue of  Harper's   Weekly.       Mr.    Kipling  cables along account of the disloy-  alfcy nt the Cape,  which ho calls  "The   Sin   of   Witchcraft."     The  burden of his complaint is that tho  civil office in Cape Town  winks  at  semi-treasonable   actions,   and   to  quote his own  words,  tho  government will take care  that it does  not pay anyone to be  loyal.   JTe  ~saysT "TlSTIoynlisfc on the border  has his house ripped inside and out  by  the  Boers or rebels,  or  both.  The ditl03ralist's house is respected,  and   in  return  tlieir supplios  arc  given to the enemy aud also information.    His risk is small, he may  possibly,   but   not   if   his   friends  can *     stop      it,      be      arrested  on a charge of treason.   He may  then bo sent into the country to be  tiied  hy a sympathetic jury.    Fie  hopes, and not without good reason,  to havo hi.s farms restored to him.  He  has undergone some absurdly  inadequate  punishment, while  the  loyalist's piano ib lying wireless on  the veranda.    Photographs of hi.*-,  house roam as though cyclones had  mot to wrestle there, his flocks and  herds aro gone and  tiie  baby linen  is lying on the dungheap.   JTe and  his family crawl into Cape Town in  ovorpacked   trains   and  get what  .consolation they can from  singing  "Britons   Never  Shall  bo  Slaves."  on the platfoim.   Then do Messrs:  Kruger and Steyn cuter into correspondence with lord .Roberts as to  tho atrocities committed on a virtuous population by brutal soldiers.  There is one way out of the horror,  and   one   only.      The    men    who  have   befouled     the    colony   are  known.       They go about, and no  man   lays   a   hand    upon   them"  Explained Away.  ���    Ro.-si.ani>, March 14.���The citizens of Rossland are extremely annoyed at  the  sensational  and untruthful statements which are being sent to eastern papers regarding  the  true state  of affairs  in    this  camp.    Nothing   could  bo further  from the truth than those alarmist  rumors,'iuost of which have emanated from    the  coast.    It   is  true  that during the past month  and a  half an  addition   of   special   constables   has   been    made    to   the  polico       force    for      the       purpose     of    protecting    the   mines  agaiust any destruction of property,  but these men aro under the control and direction  of the  chief of  police of the city and are as quiet  and unobtrusive as any officer who  patrols the ordinary thoroughfares  of the town.   The reason for the  employment   of    these    men   can  readily be appreciated.  During the past week about 800  men have been thrown out of work  by the temporary closing of the  mines and all told, there are perhaps 1000 idle men in the camp.  Among them are a few, but not  many, men who have'come from  the Cceur d'AIcne district aud hold  extreme views, and besides there is  the vicious element which exists in  all towut>, aud nhvajrs "seeks to  break loose, so the city authorities deemed ib only- right  under the circumstances to increase the police force temporarily,  or until the labor disputes had .been  terminated. ' Prudence required  more protection to the scattered  properties of the companies than  the small police forces of six men,'  throe at night and three at day patrol, could give.  It must bo understood that these  mining properties are within the  corporation limits, but, as they are  situated on Red mountain, the policemen on each shift could not  cover t'hc whole territory. Accordingly at the request of the mining  companies a night patrol has been  put on under the management of  the chief of police.  FREE STATE CAPITAL HELD  HOW  THEY  SURRENDERED  At Bloemfontein.  London*, March 15.���The Daily  News has the following dispatch  from Pretoria dated Monday,  which says : Lord Salisbury's reply has been received and a Boer  refutation of the British contention  is under consideration. ft will  deny that any annexation has been  made and it will be declared that  the occupation of British territory  was merely strategic. It will also  express the determination of the  two republics to fight to tho finish.  A dispatch to the Daily Chronicle  from Bloemfontein dated Tuesday  evening March 13th says : "Bloemfontein surrendered at 10 o'clock  today. It was occupied at noon.  President Steyn, with a majority  of the fighting burghers, has fled  northward.'  General French was within five  miles of the place on Monday afternoon. He sent a summons into the  town threatening to bombard unless it was surrendered by 4 o'clock  on Tuesday morning. A white flag  was hoisted on Tuesday morning  and a deputation of the town council with mayor Kellner came out to  lord Roberts at Spier Kop, five  miles south of the town, making a  formal surrender of the place.  Lord Roberts made a state entry  at noon. He received a tremendous ovation, After visiting the  public buildings he went to the official residence, of the president followed by a cheering crowd, who  waved a Biitish flag and sang the  British national songs. They were  in a condition of frenzied excitement.  On the Monday afternoon previous to the surrender there was a  little sniping and shelling, but the  enemy retired.  t Lord Roberts has his headquarters at tho president's house and  there are many of the wounded in  the building. Tiie railway is not  injured..  born residents of this city,  as you will see by the  enclosed circular, which was  issued. We also enclose a list of  individual subscriptions from American sympathizers. This contribution is but a small token of the  deep loyalty and devotion of the  subscribers to our queen and her  empire, and, while tho amount is  not great, it is certainly a heartfelt  manifestation of the deep love we  bear to the mother country and a  token Nof our admiration for her  sons, who are laying down then-  lives in South Africa in the cause  of freedom and justice."  ROBERTS' GREAT CAMPAIGN  Cape Town News,  ��� Capi: Towx, March 11.���The  British troops under lor'd Methuen  have returned to Kimberley from  ��� the occupation of Iloshof, Orange  I Free State. Many gnus and much  jamuiunitiou was seized and a  strong garrison was left to guard  the town. Six Boers were arrested.  By Lord Soberts.  Loxnox, March 14.���0 p. m.-���It is  officially announced that lord Roberts has occupied Bloemfontein and  that the British flag is flying from  the top of tho capital.  London, March 14.���The following is the text of lord Roberts' dispatch to the war office, announcing  his occupation of Bloemfontein:  Br-oisMf-oxTKix, March' 18.���By  the help of God and by the bravery  of-hor majesty's soldiers the troops  under my .command have taken"  possession of Bloemfontein. i The  British flag now flics over the presidency, evacuated last evening.  Mr. Steyn, late president of  the Orange Free State, Mr.  Fraser, member of the Jate  executive government, the mayor,  tho secretary o�� the late government, the laudrost and other officers  met me two miles from the town  and presented me with the keys of  tho public offices. The enemy have  withdrawn from the neighborhood  and all seems quiet. Inhabitants  of Bloemfontein give the troops a  cordial welcome."  BOERS WELL^ ENTRENCHED  North of Ladysmith.  Ladysmith, March 14.���-The  Boers'have beeu locatedvin r several  strong positions near the junction  of the Drakensberg and Biggars-  berg ranges. They have heavy  guns in position on Pougwoni Kop,  at Hlatikulu and in the Iiupati  mountains, as well as at Gibson's  Farm, near Gundyclough pass.  General Hunter now commands the  division. Both' men aiid horses of  the relief column are completely recovered, and are now in the pink of  condition. The I'econstruetion of  the railway from Ladysmith to  Dundee is progressing rapidly.  Another Kruger Cable,  New York, March 14.���The Evening Journal prints the following  from president Kruger: ���'Priotojua,  March 13.���The burghers will only  cease fighting when death comes.  Our forces are returning in good order to our first line of defence on  our own soil. The Natal campaign  was longer iu our favor than we expected. The British will never  reach Pretoria. The burghers,  Steyn, Joubert and myself, as well  as all others, are united. There are  no differences. God help us.  (Signed) Kruger,"  U. S. Consular Service.  Washington, March 11.���The  senate commission on foreign relations today heard a delegation  representing the business interests  of the country iu support of the  bill providing for tho reform of the  consular service. They advocated  a permanent system in th'o consular  service as of great advantage over  the present plan of a change every  ionr years.  Plumer's Advance to Mafeking.  Caijk Towx, March 11,���Colonel  Plumer is now within 40 "miles of  Mafeking.  Louat$j, Thursday, March 8.���  Colonel Plumer's force reached here  Tuesday, March Gth. It i*, believed  that only a single bridge,southward  has been destroyed and that otherwise the railroad is intact within  five miles of Mafeking. Golonel  Plumer has already dispersed several police posts in the neighborhood and is actively pushing his advance southward.  Is Eulogized.  Loxnox, March 15.���Tho first of  the campaign is over. Lord Roberts arrived at Modder River on  February Oth. He entered Bloemfontein on March 13th, thus, in  little over a month, he has effected  the relief of Kimberley and Ladysmith, the capture of general  Cronje's forces and the raising of  the British flag in the capital of  the Free State. All this has been  accomplished with comparatively  trifling losses. It is small wonder  that he is the hero of tho hour in  England. All the newspapers  eulogize him and 'congratulate the  country. They talk of the Free  State as having passed out of existence, and as being now one of the  shadows of history. It is not  doubted that there may yet be  heavy fighting, but the genius of  lord Roberts is looked to for victory over all difficulties.  His grim reference to the "late"  president Steyn is understood to  show that there shall bo no ambiguity as to the position assumed  toward the republics. The ' fact  that Mr. Fraser. late chairman of  the Free State'Raad,-and leader of  the opp6sition to Mr. Steyn, came  with the deputation to surrender  the keys is regained*, as" extremely  significant of a considerable difference of opinion among the Free  Staters regarding the war. It is  said that president Kruger hates  Mr. Fraser on account of his sympathy with the outlanders. The  demonstration of the Bloemfontein  inhabitants is also regarded as a  good augury for the future pf British supremacy.  It 'is interesting "in "connection  with the rapid advance of lord Roberts to learn that the Russian military attache with the 'Boevs who  were captured by the British, sent  the following telegram to the czar:  "I am pcifeotly amazed at tho energy in action and tho endurance  of the British infantry. I need say  no more."  There is still no news as to  whether lord Roberts has captured auy rolling stock, if he has not  then he will be obliged to wait until  tho repairing of the bridges,  over���the " Orange ���river enables  him to bring rolling stock  up. The       British       continue  pressing their advance on  Orange ri\er. The Boers still  hold Beth ul ie hiiclge on the north  side of the stream, but their  trenches are dominated by the artillery. Heavy firing is iu progress and there has been .some  skirmishing. Lord Kitchener seems  to be %rcry .successful in reducing  tho extent?of the Dutch rising.  A CANADIANGAINS THE V. C.  Hails From New Brunswick.  From private advices received in  Nelson it would seem that one of  the first Canadian contingent will  get the Victoria Cross. The fortunate soldier is Osburne Matheson of  Newcastle, New Brunswick. The  first heard of him was a telegram  received by major Maltby of Newcastle, brother of Charles Maltby of  this city, which read as follows:  "Regret to report 7782 Osburne  Matheson Avounded at Paardeberg,  27th.    District staff officer."  Later on came the news that  Matheson was tho first man- into  Cronje's laager in the memorable  Paardeberg fight, and that his con-  spicuous bravery had caused him to  be recommended for the Victoria  Cross, an honor which, if he survives the campaign, he seems sure  to obtain. So far as is known Mr.  Matheson has achieved the distinction of being the first of the Canadian volunteers to be selected for  that honor so coveted by all soldiers.  Osburne Matheson was very  popular in his native town of Newcastle and has several friends in  Nelson, among them being Perley  Fleming, Will Stewart, Sandy  Stewart, W. Sinclair, F. Graham  and Charles Maltby. Matheson formerly belonged to the 12th Field  Battery.  NELSON LOCAL NEWS.

Sullivan foreman, 125 men; JNTo. 3, G,  respective   managements  justed, -    ��� J "  On-Wednesday, the 7th instant,  committees representing the men  employed in the, Granite, Poorman  aud Athabasca mines called on Capt.  T. J. Duncan and E, Nelson Fell  with a petition, in which they made  the request * that the compromise  wage scale now operative in the  Slocan should be adopted here.  Both gentlemen requested a delay  until Saturday to formulate" a reply. On Saturday a further delay till yesterday was requested  and granted.  At noon yesterday captain Duncan informed the miners in the  Granite and 1'oorman that he was  unable to comply with their request.  A similar announcement was issued  to the men at tho Athabasca. Upon this' the men quit work and  came to Nelson.  The wages paid at the three  mines specified, above -differ-from  "the Slocan scale inasmuch  as hand drillers here have been  paid since June 1st, $3 per day,  laborers $2.50, machine men $3.50,  men in shafts $3.50 to $4, those in  receipt of over $3 per day paying  board at the rate of $1 per day,  and those receiving $3 and under  at the rate of 75 cents, while iu the  Slocan, hand drillers are receiving  $3.25, all surface men and car men  $3 with a uniform into of board of  $t per day. A difference thus exists of 25 cents 2ior day in tho eases  of car men and laborers'wage* in  favor of the Slocan scale1. The  miners claim that the total increase  in wages at the Athabasca mine,  had the Slocan scale been introduced, would only, have been $3  per day at the outside, while the  increase in the payroll at the Granite and Poorman would have been  slightly less.  CONSERVATIVE   DELEGATES  To the Nelson Convention.  The Rossland Conservatives have  selected the following-named gentlemen to attend the Nelson convention on Friday of this week:   Delegates���C.   E.   Race,   Dr.    Edward  Bowes, (B. A. C.)MorkilI, Alexander  Dick, Hector IVJeRae, mayor Goodeve, J. S. Clute, jr., David B. Bogle,  A. B. Mackenzie, W. J. Nelson, Ross  Thompson, and John Dean.   Alternatives���W. Orde, T. Mayne Daly,  J. Fred  Ritchie, -William Hasp, C.  H.   Mackintosh,    and   W.   Wyllie"  Johnston.   The names are suggest- -  ive.   All the gentlemen are Conser- ,  vatives who, without question, outwardly endorse the platform adop- .  ted at the New Westminster con- ~  vention, but who are  AArorkiug secretly to   discredit   the   platform  they outwardly favor.    These are  the men whom the rank and file of-  tho Conservative party are asked'  to blindly follow���to  certain and  merited'clef eat.  The Nelson   Conservatives   will  elect   delegates    tomorrow   night."  The following is the slate prepareel  by the Macdonald machine:   W. A.  Macdonald, R. M. Macdonald, J. H.  .  Bowes, Fred Elliot,  S. M. Brydge��,'  J. Roderick Robertson, F. W. Peters,  ex-mayor Neelands, Frank Fletcher,  Thomas G.   Procter,   and   W. W.  '  Beaton.   The rank and file of.the  Conservatives will not be allowed  auy Aroiee in  their selection;  but  the rank and file will  be  expected  to vote for the candidate these men  select.  At Kaslo the delegates  will be,  elected tonight, and it is said that  R. F. Green, M. P. P., will head the.-'  delegation.  POLITICAL   POINTERS.  Snowslide at Trout Lake,  Gus Johnston,  Nels Nelson  and  William Flobcek, three well known  miners, were caught in a snowslide  on the 9th of March, and Flobcek  was killed. The men were trapping near Trout lake, about live  miles from the town of Trout Lake,  and were sleeping in a cabin in the  heavy timber, where no .slide had  occurred before. About midnight  the avalanche struck them, wrecked  tho cabin and buried ail three. Gus  Johnston dug out and rescued his  comrades. The third man was  dead. The two .survivors were two  days and a half reaching the town,  travelling bare-footed. John Do-  herty, foreman of the Nettie L  mine, who was crushed by falling  rock in the mine about ton days  ago, died of hi.s injuries. He was  buried on Saturday. Deceased was  from California.  It is now stated that the Macdonald machine Conservatives have  discovered a man that they can  run for tho legislature. The man  is alderman Wilson. He is to be  brought out first as an independent  business man's candidate, then endorsed by> tho Conservative machine. The mine owners will furnish the sinews of war, as his views  on the eight-hoftr question are to  their liking. He would be a strong  man in the house, if elected,  Tho question ofsupplj'ing the city  of Nelson with electric light has  ceased to bo one of economics. It  has become a political issue. The  men who favor allowing the West  Kootenay Power & Light Company  of Rossland an entraucc into tho  city arc iu favor of electing a man  to the legislature "who will vote  against any attempt to change tho~  Water Clauses Act so as to allow a  | eity corporation the same right to  I acquire water records as is now enjoyed by p_rivate corporations..    _ _  "If wo are good enough to vote  for Conservative party nominee^  we are good enough to be consulted  as to who should be nominated,'" is  the way a life-long Conservative  stated it yesterday on Bakorstreet.  The Cranbrook School Enibroglio.  The following  was  handed   the  editor of Tub Trihunh yw-leulny  by two young men, evidently school  teachers holding British  Columbia  certificates.       It   is  published   for  what it is worth :     "With  regard  to  the school    question    in  Cranbrook, mention of which was Uiadn  iu yesterday's Tkihiwk, tho  action  of the superintendent of education  is considered   perfectly justifiable  in refusing a permit to* an outsido  teacher   when   there   aro    plenty,  with a British Columbia  certificate  available,      Tt is   surprising that  such enlightened people as the citizens  of  Cranbrook should   confoi  such 'a    responsible    po&ition    as  trustee on men who are  utterly incapable of performing rtho dulic  involved.    Until the people succeed  in electing citizens, who  will  take  enough interest  in  school  matters  as to read the School Act and  thus  discover what their duties are, and  who will perform  those duties in  the interests of the  citizen*  rather  than   in   their   own    interests  or  those   of    their    own    particular  chuich, they must expect trouble in  school matter,-.."

This Greenwood Daily Times  laments the circumstance that the  people of British Columbia appear  to dread Joe Martin more than they  do smallpox or bubonic plague.  The Times fears that smallpox is  spreading throughout the province,  and it reasons from this that there  is something wrong with the provincial board of health." It looks as  "if the Times man was badly seared.  Tub Vancouver World, the pocket  ' edition of premier Martin, urges all  who are eligible to have tlieir names  placed upon the voters' list in-time  for the revision in May.    This indicates that premier Martin has not  receded from the position that the  =   revision of the lists must precede  the elections.     It   is  now  np to  Mclnues.   Premier Martin, in addressing  the Liberals'of Vancouver, on Friday evening, reminded them that  , the eight-hour law would be one of  the chief issues in the approaching  campaign.    The vote of every elector in the proviuce would betaken  upon it, and ib would altogether depend upon the reprebentatives returned whether the legislation ic-  mainecl upon the statute book or  - not.     That_the_premier..coi recfcly_  stated tJie situation cannot be gain-  baid.    Those who desire to see tho  eight-hour law retained have thero-  "foretlie choice of tho following lines  of   action.     They   may   vote   for  premier  Martin, or his candidates  where they present themselves, in  the vain hope that premier Martin  may have a majority in the next  legislature; or thoy may vote for  those candidates who are in sympathy with tho Turner opposition,  which did all it could to embarrass  the  government   which gave   the  province   the   eight-hour   law;  or  they may vote   for the machine-  made Conservatives who are in the  iield professedly favoring the eight-  hour -law for campaign  purposes,  but qaietly receiving the  Support  and assistance of the bucking mine-  owners; or they may bring out or  support   such  candidates   as they  know can be relied upon, not only to  .support the eight-hour law, but if  necessary,  to fight  for it.    Those  who  desire  to .see the eight-hour  law retained have the case iu their  own hands.    It depends upon their  selecting strong candidates and in  working for them till the poll closes.  evidence. He has got to that stage  where he can hold spirited meetings  aud be sure of a good reception, but  the enthusiasm which he evokes is  municipal and not provincial. One  remarkable thing he has accomplished.. He has drawn J. C. Mc-  Lagan from all' his former idols so  completely that he now attends the  Martin meetings and leads in the  applause as premier Joe alternately  slates the. 'members of the old  Turner party and the orthodox  Liberals of British Columbia, Manitoba and the Territories. This is  something which no other politician  has been able to accomplish since  Vancouver was.  The Nelson Miner yesterday apprised its readers of the fact that  mayor Houston received a salary as  chief magistrate. This startling  piece of news was not received as a  "special to the "Miner," but "was  carefully gleaned fiom a report of  the city council's proceedings. The  Miner -then proceeds that mayor  Houston, being a salaried official,  should be courteous to those who  attend meetings of the council. It  is not likely that anyone will  quarrel with this reasoning even  though it comes a trifle late. But  can it be that tho Miner, in this  abstract way, is referring to the experience of the tramway representative who desired to bore with a  speech a council that did not wish to  bo bored. If so the staid old Miner  is confusing license with courtesy.  Xo pet son appearing at the council  meeting has a right to address the  council save by consent. It is generally conceded; but when the  matter upon which a heating is requested is disposed of, there no  longer exists any excuse for au address. To refuse a hearing in such  a case is not discourteous. Since it  took the Miner two months to ascertain that mayor Houston was a  salaried official, it is fair to hope  that iu two months more it will  concede he is not discourteous.  pay a scale of wages that does not  appreciably increase the cost of  operating their properties; a scale  of wages that was offered by themselves in another district as a compromise scale and accepted by the  mine workers, it would appear to  the average man that they do not  want peace or harmony unless the  peace and harmony is of the kind  that exists between a slave and his  owner; tho peace and harmony  that comes to the man that accepts  the bread of charity. It is to be  hoped that the mines operated in  Nelson district will, in time, be  managed by men endowed with  just a little horse sense and a little  straightforward honesty.  The tramway petition that was  presented to the last meeting among  other things stated, that a "number  of parties are desirous of obtaining  electric power, but are  prevented,"  etc.   Who are the parties that are  so   anxious    to    procure   electric  power?   Will the tramway people  give their names?   Will the  tramway people also take the people of  Nelson into   their   confidence  and  publish their agreement with the  West   Kootenay   Power   &   Light  Company   for   power?   Does    auy  such agreement exist?   Is not the  tramway company   a   mere   stool  pigeon of the power and light company?   How   many   of the "head  push"  of   the   tramway  company  have a dollar of their  own money  invested in   the company?   These  are questions   that the people of  Nelson ���would like answered before  they take any steps toward giving  the West Kootenay Power & Light  Company of Rossland an entrance  into the city.  The    working    miners   around  ^Moyic have set the mine managers  of other districts a good example.  Prior to the settlement of the wage  dispute in the Slocan-they .were receiving $3.50 per day for hand drilling.   They were in no way affected  by-the Slocan trouble, but when the  compromise   was   arrived   at   the  management of the St. Eugene Consolidated suggested that the hand  drillers recognize the $3,25  scale,  which they did.   This is as it should  be, and the;bucking miue managers  of the Nelson district would be acting the graceful part if they too  fell into line   and recognized the  Slocan compromise as the standard  wage   for  their district,    lb is an  even    break   between    what   the  miners asked and what the miue  managers    offered    in    the     first  instance.   TriE people of Nelson, if they are  wise, will insist ou sending a member to the legislature who will  work to secure an amendment to  the Water Clauses Act allowing  cities to acquire water rights i'or  power purposes. This can only be  obtained by sending a man who  knows what to-light-for-and  how  "HUDSON'S BAY"  fi0. 0^ . 00 .00.^0 .00 . 00 .00 .  e*-<*L-e*-iZt'<*''&  0*'00-fi*-fi*-fi*"fi*"0ft-0*-0*'0*'00>  iff  iff  iff  &  '%  Hi  ��\  Hi  \ii  SEND  Hi  Hi  FOR  (0  Hi  ��  Hi  Hi  SAMPLES  Hi  %3333*-3 999 999 &  Ladies'  Mac intoshes  Latest Styles  m  m  Xlf  iff  iff  ^aaaa*********  it  Xlf  iff  iff  iff  NEW   SPRING    GOODS  ��� ' '~ "    "        '       "   ������  "'   ���' - ���       '��� ���      ���     -���   ������      ���       ������  ������������ ��������� . , ��� ,~      ���                   -., ... ���    ���������   We have opened this week a large shipment of import goods direct  from English manufacturers, therefore we are able to sell  goods much cheaper than buying from eastern houses  iff  iff  iff  iff  iff  iff  Xlf  ress  iff  iff  ito  iti  iff  iff  iff  iff  INCLUDING  Prints, Zephyrs, Ginghams, Victoria and  Bishop Lawn, India Linen and Muslin.

When the case is opened today  evidence will be submitted to demonstrate that Bowden's defalcations are considerably in excess of  the original estimate. An examination of the books has been in progress for several days, in the course  of which it has been shown that  tlio alleged peculations begau as��  far back as last summer. In one  case a cheek for $13 had been issued  to pay a local account, and this had  been cashed by Bowden and tho  amount never handed to the firm  for Avhom it was intended.

Tho''tricolor over which nil the  - political fuss has been crented hi  Quebec, since the outbreak of the  Transvaal war. litis a rather interesting hi&tioy. In Le Temps, Benjamin Suite of Ottawa, one of the'  ' foremost Frcneh-Oauadian historical writers, lias an article in which  among other things die points out  that, tho French flag, the tiicolor.  was entirely unknown in Quebec  until tho alliance between Great  TJiitainand France against Russia  in 1834. Mr. Suite says it was the  Allan Line boats that first twined  those fhigs, and that all through  tlio war, whenever the allied armies  f woo a victory the entwined Union  Jack aud tricolor was displayed on  trains and in public places overy-  J where. For the most part the  French-Canadians have always regarded not   the tricolor   but the  . fleur-de-lis as 1 hc-true-Freneh-flag.-  Any footing that the tricolor has,  however, is tho result of i>, Biitish  jilliancc that not only Quebec but  all tho colonies celebrated.

T.  cipal one, the sacredness of the tie  ���would soon disappear, and the relation between husband and wife become as precarious in Canada as it  is in some parts of the United  States. The propagation of such  ideas is especially dangerous in a  province like Manitoba, with its  largo population of foreigners, who  have not yet become accustomed to  our institutions, and whose own  moral code, brought from their  native laud, is in many eases none  to strict. Under any circumstances  the publication of such a statement  would be indefensible. When done  for the purpose of aifeetiug an election it becomes criminal. Moreover,  the prompt denial of its truth by  premier Macdonald will prevent it  influencing the result in Beautiful  Plains, and the Free Press will not  oven havo the satisfaction of having  successfully performed a smart  election dodge.

The lengths to which newspapers  will sometime? go, with a view to  making capital for tho political  party to which they belong, i* illustrated by the attempt of tho Winnipeg Free Press to cafet doubt on tho  legality of tho marriages which  have taken place iu Manitoba since  the accession of tho Macdonald government to oflicc. According to  tiio Free Press, the law provides,  that marriage licenses shall be  fssijed by the minister of agriculture, and, as there" is as yet no  minister of agiiouibure in premier  Macdonald's cabinet, it r/aanons that  all marriages which have taken  place in lhn,t province this year are  null and void. The argument is, of  course, absurd, since vhe licenses  have hcen issued by a properly  const ituted government, aud cannot  depend for their validity on the  mere accident of delay in appointing this or that minister. Tho immorality of the Fiee Proas' action  consists in the alaiin wliich the bare  suspicion of legality would excite  jniiong tho hundreds of poisons  itlt'eeted, and in the inculcation of  the idea thfit marriage if. merely a  human instead of a divine institution.

Ottawa Join nal.  Where the British flag stands for  freedom, public aud individual, as  Ave believe it has stood oftener than  any other: in so far as the British  Hag stands for fair play, as we believe  it does stand more than any other; to  the extent the British Hag stands  for broad and generous toleration,  which we believe it does to an extent never rivalled by any other  on earth���loyalty to that flag is admirable, pride in it is just, determination by those of us living beneath it to live and die for it is  noble, llow much of this loyalty,  this justice, this nobility is visible  in the action of those rioters who  marched through Montreal to compel lawabiding neighbors and fel-  low-citi/.ens to shout for their  special brand of alleged Britishism ?  'Ours is ti great, a free, a just and a  tolerant flag,.devoted to tho good of  humanity and tho'aclvaneonient of  Christianity' ran the mob slogan,  practically, 'and if you don't wave  it when we think you should wave  ib we will kick the stuffing out of  you.'

The whole amount to  be paved consists of about^ 1100  feet, and this can be done at the  rate of 200 feet per day with an  abundant supply of plank.  A militia order issued from headquarters at Ottawa, under the date  of February 27th, makes it appear  that AV". J. G. Dickson of this city  was the Dickson who was Avounded  at Paardeberg on February ISth.  Press dispatches indicated that the  wounded man came from Victoria.  There is however, a chance that a  mistake has be made at Ottawa as  Dickson is listed as a private and a  volunteer from the Fifth regiment.
