Speaking  of Martin as leader of the government, Mr. Clabon said he decidedly  preferred to see Martin in that position rather than Mackintosh.

Berllv, April 27.���The German  government has formally demanded  satisfaction for a number of outrages lately committed at Melbourne upon German residents supposed to be friendly to the Boers.  WARREN HAS BEEN SHELVED  French's Success Uncertain.  London, April 27.-2 p.m.���The  following dispatch has been received at the war office from lord  Roberts:  "Bloemfontein, April 20.���At  the request of the high commissioner, Warren has been appointed  military governor of Griqualand  West, while that part of the country is in a disturbed condition."  This dispatch constitutes all the  war news received up to this hour.  The country is eagerly waiting to  hear Avhether general French succeeded in cutting off the Boers, but  of his progress there is not a word.  The military critics of the afternoon papers differ as to the chances  of another Paardeberg, but they  agree in considering the situation  in the Free State as being eminently satisfactory. They argue  that, even if general French is unable to intercept the main Boer  forces, he may score considerable  success in a series of rear-guard actions or the isolation of straggling  bodies.  Lord Roberts' peculiar reference  to sir Alfred Milner over Warren's  appointment lends itself to the in-?  f erence that the commander-in-chief  of the British forces in South Africa  scarcely approves of it and that the  * previous report that Warren had  been recalled was correct, but that  he was saved from coming home by  the action of the British high  commissioner.  According to a special dispatch  from Lorenzo Marquez, the latest  estimates of tho Boer forces place  them at 30,000, of which 13,000 are  at Kroonstadt, 6000 at Fourteen  Streams, 6000 in Natal, 700 about  Mafeking and 1000 at Pretoria,  while 250 have been ordered north  to intercept general, Carrington's  force. The work of entrenching  ���Pretoria is proceeding.  Boers Prepare For Winter.  London, April 28.���The Lady-  smith correspondent of-the Daily  Telegraph says: * "The Boers are  preparing to spend the winter in  Natal. They are bringing stock  from the high veldt into Natal for  winter grazing and they, are demanding that the Kaffirs pay the  tax to them instead of the Natal  hut government. They also declare  that unless the Kaffirs work for  them they (the Kaffirs) must move  south of Sunday river."    -���  German Naval Program.  ' Berlin, April 27.���The Centrist  proposals adopted provide that the  fighting fleet shall consist of two  flagships, four squadrons of eight  battleships each, eight large and 24  small cruisers for foreign service, a  fleet of 3 large and 10 small cruisers  for a reserve, four battleships and  three large and four small cruisers,  and that appropriations for the  necessary supplies shall be included  jvnd fully set forth in the estimates.

Erasttis  De Klock was sentenced to two  years' imprisonment ���with hard  labor for guiding the British from  PetruslSurg to Bloemfontein."  Hay is AU Bight.  Pretoria, April 27.���Advices indicate tho United States consul, A.  S. Hay, has won a diplomatic success. His position is exceedingly  difficult, but he is pursuing an impartial, determined policy and has  succeeded in cousideiably ameliorating the conditions of the British  prisoners at Pretoria, including the  colonials,   "   .Copper in Rhodesia.  London, April 28.���Tho Daily  Express says this morning: "We  learn the sudden return of Cecil  Rhodes to the Cape was due to his  receipt of news of a great find of  copper in Northern Rhodesia, Mr.  Rhodes will soon bo heard of as a  "Copper King,"  Sympathy in London.  London. April 28.���The morning  papers all speak sympathetically  with reference to the Ottawa fire.  They are generally loth to believe  that it could have been the work of  Fenians or pro-Boers, "If it was,"  says the Daily Mail, "and Canada  has  suffered,  on account  of   her  Boers  London,   April  in Natal.  28.���The Ladysmith correspondentof the Standard  says: "The strength of tho Boors  in the Biggarsbcrg district is believed to be-between 5000 and 8000  men.

It is  expected that the lord mayor of  London will open a relief fund.  Lord Strathcona aud Mount Royal,  in the course of an interview, admitted his inability to see how a  firo in Hull could "spread to Ottawa-  He said ho personally had no suspicion of foul play, and he thought  it quite possible that the fire might  have broken out at the same time in  both places.  COT THE TRANSPORT AWAY  Location of Troops Doubtful.  London, April 28.���4:55 a. m.���  Jn commandant ' general Louis  Botha, the Boers appear to have  found a capable successor to Joubert. As the result of his insight  and quick decision, it may be assumed that the retreating commandoes have got safely away with  the transport. It is true that lord  Roberts' dispatch leaves much unsaid as to the whereabouts of other  forces than those of general French  and general Rundle. Nothing is  said about the trdops of general  Brabant or generals Pole-Carew,  Hart and" Chermside, but the indications from Aliwal North show that  several small commandoes are still  hovering in the.vicinity of Spring-  Jield, causing a certain amount of  danger. The advices from Dewetsdorp outline the duties of general  Chermside, and justify the conclusion that it will still be necessary  to employ a considerable body of  troops to keep the Free State clear  of the Boers. X.  The significance of general Hunter's division going to Kimberley,  where mounted" troops are also  arriving daily, is now said to be a  serious attempt to deal with the  strong Boer forces on the Vaal  river, now threatening" to' retake  Barkley, and then an endeavor to  relieve Mafeking. It will he borne  in mind that general Hunter paid a  hurried visit to lord Boberts at'  Bloemfontein.     /,, ��';^ -~  -  Other .Bloornfontein dispatches  throw interesting points of light  upon the situation. One special  says:  "Seven hundred and fifty wagons  of a. Boer heavy transport train  have reached Kroonstadt from the  south. Only light 'square wagons  have been left behind. The Boers  have organized a specially mounted  corps for-foraging and other work  requiring special mobility."  Another dispatch reports that before the' Boers were driven from  Dewetsdorp about 7000 of them had  been slowly retiring towards Ladybrand, where large supplies are  stored. Immense corn fields are  ready for harvesting.  Series of Rearguard Actions.  London, April 28.���The Daily  Chronicle has the following from  Vaal bank, dated Wednesday, April  25th : For two days the Boers have  Jbeen fighting a series.of_ rearguard-  actions. Crossing the Modder river  here, and hotly pursued by general  Alderson, they got into the  kopjes southeast of the crossing  and narrowly missed being  captured by goneral Bundle,  who was coming fiom that direction, but on sighting his advance  they turned outward and slipped  away between general Alderson  and geueral Rundle. A prisoner  just captured asserts that president  Steyn was present during Monday's  fighting at Stangfontein, oast of  Leeuw Kop.. Ho had shaved his  beard so that he was not known  easily.

Subscriptions Coming In.  Hamilton, April 27.���Subscriptions to the Ottawa Fire Relief fund  and telegrams of sympathy are being received from all over tho Dominion and thu United States.

From every quarter of the Globe,  from the queen'ssubjectsthroughout  the world, as well as from representatives and inhabitants of foreign countries have these manifestations proceeded, and, on my return to this country, I received a  welcome so spontaneous and hearty  that I felt I was the recipient of a  most gratifying tribute of a genuine good will. Such a proof of  kind and generous feeling is naturally most highly prized by me, and  will be forever cherished in my  memory. (Signed) Albert Edward."  BUSINESS WAS EXTRA COOD  AN ULTIMATUM IS SENT IN  Turkey's Subterfuge.  , Constantinople, April 27.���The  American note handed to the Turkish minister of foreign affairs, Tew-  fik Pasha, on Tuesday, as intimated  in the dispatches of the Associated  Press yesterday, is couched in peremptory terms demanding immediate payraent'of the indemnity several   times   promised   to   minister  Straus   by   the sultan.   The note  does not fix a time limit for an answer, but its tenor is not far from  the character of an ultimatum.    It  has produced a great   impression"  upon the Porte, which,   however,  shows no disposition to modify the.  attitude     hitherto       maintained,  namely:   Repudiating the  responsibility and seeking to diminish the  importance   of   the matter.     It is  presumed that the   Porte's reply  will be in this sense; and hence, it  is feared, the  United  States government will be obliged   to take  steps to enforce its demands.  Turkey's decision to send an officer to America to study naval construction is intended to be another  sop. It is a revival of an old project to buy a cruiser in the United  States, in the price of which the indemnity shall be included, so the  Porte will be able to say it has not  paid the indemnity. The American,  "government has already- cafegfori-  cally refused such a compromise,  which would mean prolonged uego  tiations and the dragging out of the  matter indefinitely, to wliich the  United States will not listen.  As regards the indemnity,"it is iu  the nature of a debt of honor. If  the Porte wants to buy a cruiser,  that is a matter in no way connected with the indemnity.  The Porte's reply to'tho last collective note on the'subject of duties  has not yet been made, and the embassies are exchanging views in regard to the terms on which to consent to an increase of duties. It is  thought that, before the beginning  of negotiations, the embassies will  invite tho Porto to abolish ransoms  and measures introduced in violation  of treaties.  Bossland Liberals Endorse Curtis,  Kossland, April 27.���The Liberal  Association at its meeting tonight  to select-delegates to the-convention to bring out a candidate in tli is  riding was very largely attended.  It was resolved that a convention  was not necessary, and the meeting  pledged itself to support the candidature'of Hon, Smith-Curtis, the  government candidate, only two  opposing the motion to that effect.  Mr. Curtis has now beeu unanimously endorsed by all other associations throughout the riding except Grand Forks, where a small  number of members, only five being present, passed an equivocal  resolution some ten days ago. A  large meeting has been called there,  when no doubt that eity which, regardless of party is very .strongly  in favor of Mr. Curtis, will endorse  him.  will addressed to me on the occa- i taken prisoner.  Hamilton's- Casualties.  London, April 27.���A dispatch  from lord Roberts, dated Bloemfontein, April 27th, gives general Hamilton's report of the British casualties at Israel's Poort April 25th.  Among those slightly wounded is  colonel W. D, Otter of Canada.  General Hamilton reports that the  Canadians and Marshall's Horse did  splendidly and could, not have done  any better.  Additional casualties thus far reported : Ian Hamilton's mounted  infantry���Lieutenants Barry and  Hill wounded, both of Marshall's**  Horse, the former severely, the latter slightly. A patrol from Bethulie came across a body of the enemy  on Smithfield loul on April 25th.

In every  line the trade expressed satisfaction with the volume of business,  and the fact is particularly, gratifying as the last week of the month  is usually the quietest of the four.  Next week will see a rush of iirst-  of-the-rnonth orders, but there is  every indication that business will  boom. A marked feature of this  week's list of shipments is that  every point in the Kootenays is represented. Yesterday's consignments appended are a fair indication of the territory covered by  Nelson wholesalers.

Mr.  Costigan also said that the premier  addressed a large -and attentive  meeting in Cranbrook on Thursday  evening, but the applause was  Weak and he utterly failed to carry  the meeting with him. He thought  it was improbable that there would  be a strict Martin candidate there.  At any rate no one had as yet beeu  mentioned in that connection.  Census of the Klondike.

It has disclosed  the fact that in Vancouver there is  a resolution of council providing  that tho city engineer shall not be  interfered with in tho employing  and discharging of workmen. The  peddlers' organ argues that this  shows mayor Gordon does not believe be is greater than the council.   In this deduction the peddlers' jn--  gan is at faul t. The promises would  * indicate that the city of Vancouver  has a separate charter, and that its  aldermen are not restricted by the  provisions of the Municipal Clauses  Aet, as are the aldermen of the city  of Nelson* There are doubtless  other differences existing, which  may be discussed when the peddlers'  organ pursues its investigation  further.   At Nelson, and at other   points  throughout the province where he  has    addressed   electors,    premier  Martin has endeavored to show that  he  was turned  out of the Semlin  cabinet in." order that his colleagues  could  givo   away several   million  dollars worth of coal land-i which  had not been' earned by the company, asking for them under a subsidy act   of  the   legislature.   The  premier has stated that his opinion  as attorney-general was  that the  valuable    subsidy   had    not   been  earned, and* that he strengthened  this opinion with a joint opinion to  the  same effect from Christopher  Robinson and B. B. Osier, two of  the most celebrated lawyers in Canada.    When none but premier Martin's side of the .story is heard it  appears convincing ; but it has beeu  definitely stated in the public prets,  that premier  Martin, while attorney-general,  suppressed  from   the  [Eastern lawyers, whose opinion he  sought, some very material facts in  the ease. It has been stated that  in view of the suppression^ of facts  tho Eastern lawyers could not very  well find otherwise than that the  coal lands had not been earned under the subsidy act. In his address  at Nelson it is significant, to say the  least.-that premier Martin did not  even refer to the very serious charge  which was laid again&t himself in  this connection.  ��� The-electors of���Dcwdney have  made it ea&y for Dick MeBride to  seen re his re-election. His opponent will be Whethain, the Mat&qui  man whom he defeated in the last  general elections.  Tine decision of the Conservatives  of Victoria, to drop party lines and  run a mixed ticket, will shut out  whatever hope premier Martin and  his  colleagues had of   securing   a  foothold at the capital.    This will  mean that'the eight-hour law will  not be an issuo in Victoria.   Every  man on  the Turner  ticket   is opposed   to  the   eight-hour  law he-  cause the Turner faction must conciliate the Dunsmuir, interest; and  no one in Victoria has any confidence  in the  sincerity of premier  Martin upon the eight-hour or any  other plank in his platform.   Those  who are familiar with tho conditions concede that the Turner faction  will carry eleven out of the  fourteen seats on the Island.    It is  a faction which yields obedience to  the Dunsmuir interest first, and to  the  Conservative party after, and  wliich coiibisteutly opposed the repeal of the mortgage tax, the trade  tax upon working miners, the eight-  hour law and every other reform  wliich  the labor interest has  contended for.    It is not strong enough  to control the legislature in itself;  but is endeavoring to make a trade  BROWN   &    CO.

BITHET & CO., Ltd., Vietoria  Tiik people of Kootenay have no  use for wobblers and straddlers.  They want men who know where  they arc at on all questions that  affect the geueral good.  Tiik Provincial party in Nelson  riding invite all the members of the  party to take a hand in selecting a  candidate to contest the riding.  The men at Kitchener in the east  and at Waneta iu the south are as  much interested in the welfare of  the riding and the province as are  the men at Ymir and at Nelson.  This is in striking contrast with  the methods adopted by the  Liberal-Conservative party-liuers.  They believe that a few men living  in Nelson should alone name the  candidate. And if they name one  they will find on election day that  the men in the outside towns and  camps have votes that count.  The Rossland Miner has turned  down the Mackintosh crowd, and it  looks now as if Mackintosh would  be pulled off and a Provincial Party  candidate put in the field to knock  out Smith Curtis. Mackintosh can't  do it, and a Provincial Party man  can do it easily.

Mines that will pay to  " work will be worked, notwith-*  " standing the eight-hour law."  Tins Martinitos claim that their  leader has always been a friend of  the workingmen. Yes, when he  wanted office. lie wanted to get  even with the Semlin government,  who wore friends of the working-  men, and ho and the Dunsmuirs  combined to do the work. The  Dunsmuirs are noted friends of  workingmen���Chinese, uot white  workingmen.  PitKMiBit Martin says he has no  use for independents! yet he has  been so independent when in office  that no one with the spunk of a  mouse could get along with him.  lie need not worry about the men  of independence who are seeking  election to the legislature from  Kootenay.

A joint meeting of the Trades  find Labor council, the labor party  and representatives ofJ tlio various  labor unions was held in trades  hall last evening. Mr. Fournier,  president of the retail clerks' union,  ���was elected chairman, and Mr. Ernest Hague, secretary.  The chairman announced that tho  object of the meeting was to receive  the report of the election committee  which had boon appointed last June.  Mr." Charles llaitt,   chairman of  that committee, then presented the  report.   Explanation was iirst given  of the  reasons why such a length  of time had elapsed since the date  of the election and the completion  of the report.    These had reference  to the collection of funds, and the  recount which necessitated a second  call  for   funds.    The  report   then  wont on to say that the first successful independent labor contest iu  Canada had been fought and won  in Winnipeg; all claims had been  duly settled,  and  the  representative had now an honored position  and  reputation   in  the   Dominion  parliament.    Mention was made of  the name of Mr. J.  T. Mortimer as  having  been  the  manager of  the  campaign and agent of Mr. Puttee,  also of the valuable services of Mr.  W. W. Buchanan, and Rev. "W. A.  Vrooman, and of others who had  given time to canvassing and scrutineer work.   The total expenditure  had beeu $1055.05, of which $081.80  belonged to the election proper and  S37-05 to the recount; $1058.20 had  been., collected from all-somces, so  that there was a balance of $2.55.  The correctness of the accounts was  certified  to by Win. ���ScobV A.  G.  Cowley and G. W. Libter, auditors.  The committee recommended that  .steps'be taken immediately to retain the prestige secured, and secure  the return of an independent labor  candidate for this city iu tho coming  general elections.    The best means,  ifc was suggested, would be to appoint a committee to make preliminary preparations   for the   cam-  , paigu,  the   watchword  of   which  would be, "What; we havc, we hold."  Mr. Raitt moved the adoption of  the report, and leferriug to the appointment of a committee, said that  disadvantages    had    handicapped  -i lie committee in'the past very considerably in their work, bnt these  should not affect them again.   The  best way would be to have a large  active working committee to con-  i mue  to -receive subscriptions ~in~  .small weekly, fortnightly or monthly accounts.  Mr. Wm., Scott seconded the  motion with peculiar pleasure, and  bore tribute to tho able manner in  which the election manager had  discharged 3iis duties. The committee had given him a free hand, aud  great harmony had prevailed among  his colleagues, It was a very proud  moment for Winnipeg when they  elected A. W. Puttee. They considered Mr. Puttee not only the representative of the labor interests  of Winnipeg as a whole, but tho  first fruits of tlio resurrection of  the sleeping masses. (Applause.)  Iu several towns in Ontario labor  mon were now preparing to put  candidates iu the field. Tho labor  men had shown the people of  Winnipeg their good sense best in  tho candidate they had put in the  field and elected, a man in -whom  they had perfect confidence, who  would uot become too big for his  boots, aud who had the respect of  the citizens at large. Men who had  actively opposed him had admitted  t-ince that he was one of the best, if  not the best member Winnipeg had.  (Applause). The citizens generally,  men in business and other walks of  life were recognizing him as the representative of all classes in Winnipeg, and were showing hiui the  social respect that was due him.  Sir.-!. Puttee was a regular attendant  at tlio government liou-ie as a member of the Red Cross committee.  (Hear, hear.) Scores of men had  got tired of the old political parties;  they had tried ono, and tried tho  other and found both wanting.  Though they cared, very little for  Is now prepared.to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, JJ. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  labor problems they were prepared  to give the labor men a fair show,  and the latter wanted to prove  themselves worthy of their confidence. Trades unionism was a  great political power where it was  well organized, as here. It was an  organized body with a discipline  two centuries old. He supported  tho recommendation of the chairman that, after this committee was  dissolved, a similar one should be  formed with certain instructions  given that when the elections came  around, as thoy would very soon,  they might be prepared to return  Mr. Puttee to his place. Any one  who would oppose him would have  to give a good reason why he should  be unseated.  The motion was then passed.  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD- OFFICE, TORONTO.

It was  only with difficulty that I could see  any'cattle at all, but'.'presently I  capped him by asking him if he  could see the man in charge of the  cattle. Now, I could not see any  man; but, knowing that there must  be some one in charge, I boldly put  forward the bluff. The shikari  looked hard at the infinitesimal  moving specks which he knew to be  cattle, but the cowherd was beyond  him, so he gave it up and confessed  himself defeated."  te. A.

The opera house was thronged  yesterday afternoon when the second performance of, Gilbert & Sullivan's "Pinafore" was given by the  Nelson amateurs. A large proportion of the audience consisted of  children, at least 400 of them being  present. Dr. LaBau very generously treated al^ the school children to the show, and there were  about 300 of his little guests there,  Avho thoroughly enjoyed the performance. The good impression  created on Thursday evening was  fully sustained yesterday afternoon, and it was agieed on all  hands that it was the best thing of  the kind ever seen here. Some old  Winnipeggers even admitted that  it excelled similar performances in  the prairie city. -.The opera was  closed with a very striking tableau.  Mrs. K. C. Beaton was in the center as Britannia, and a very handsome Britannia she made. The  curtain rang down amid rounds of  applause. -   - ���   \  French's Progress.
