 DAILY EDITION   BY   MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  THURSDAY Ip5RMM^ MAY 3 J900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS  The United  States,  recently beeu iu re-  OLD SWINDLE IS REVIVED  Chancery Estates Fake.  London, May 2.���The oft tried  scheme by which  so  many Americans have been deluded into imagining themselves  to be  the  heirs to  .English chancery estates has  come  up once more  embassy lias  ceipt of many inquiries on this'sub-  ject, which led to  high officials of  the court of justice making  an  investigation, and  this  has  resulted  in finding a recrndescense of the  scheme     which      has      been    exposed   by    the   American    minis-  te s   and   ambassadors    to    Great  /Britain.   The action in  the matter  lias been due this time to the activity of a firm  in New York,  which  has been operating under the name  of the Royal British Claims agency,  the only address  being  "Postoffice  box   23S."      The   plan consists in  i-suing   reprints   of    the    London  Gazette's list of pending  claims in  chancery under  another title, ttud  charging a dollar for what costs a  .shilling here,  omitting the points  and   minimising   the   details   con-  1 lined in the Gazette, and  offering  those  who  havc  similar names to  t lie claimants to put the matter in  the hands  of  Loudon,lawyers  for  ion dollars.  The concern's letter head had the  name of a reputable London firm of  lawyers printed on it, but it is  partly marked out. This firm denies all knowledge of the claims  agency and says it has been much  .'tnnoyed by receiving letters from  private parties in America on the  ���*��� ibject of claims which are neither  ��\orth looking up or likely to be se-  lighteued views to remain iii Turkey under present prevailing conditions. In spite of the Porte's refusal to sanction the matter, the  British postoffice at Valonica was  opened on Tuesday.  HAMILTON BREAKS THROUCH  cured, owing lo the statute of lirni  lalions.  The United States  embassy here  Ii.js    frequently    issued    circulars  ,<diawing the attention of Amenta ns to the fact that the unclaimed  I'-tates  in-Chancery average only  ��� about $1000, that there are. only  i wo approximating $75,000 and that  fiie limitations usually bar recovery. The United States ambassador, Mr. Joseph Choate, is reporting  the matter to United States t-ecre-  La i*y of State Hay.  Letters From Kruger and Steyn.  London, May 15.���The Bloemfontein correspondent of the Morning Post, telegraphing Tuesday,  says: "Wc have captured two iu-  1,er esthigfletters. The first, which  i-. from Steyn to Botha, complains  of the neglect of the defence of  the defence of Kroonstadt by the  commandoes there who are described as "occupied in looting the  grain districts,'' which causes  an increase of ill-feeling among  fc'iG Free State burghers.. Steyn  couoludes by declining to be  jes-pousible for the loyalty of the  ]��Vee Staters unless a guarantee is  given of the Transvaal intention  to protect Kroonstadt. The second  j�� a letter-from Kruger to the commandant at Fourteen Streams.  lunger declares that it is impossible to send the reinforcements the  commandant asks for, since all the  JVderal forces are required at their  present posts, hnv he declares that  1 lie federals are gaining great victories and that European interven-  ^ l urn is only a question of days."  Palmer Mountain Tunnel.  Loom is, Washington, April 30.���  * Li the Palmer Mountain .tunnel  Saturday night shots in the face,  ;j()7.1 iu and at 1225 feet vertical  depth, opened into Si inches of  < I Harts*, showing free gold. This is  the -2nd vein encountered in  the tunnel and the fourth  f'mee leaving the 2000-foot  mark. Tho last two are in  ihe Helena Belle ground, aud the  .initin vein, which is so well defined  (������Ii'iu- through the Helena Belle and  Black Bear claims, cannot be more  than 100 or 130 feet away. The  cutting of these four rich veins  within 175 feet lias fully verified  Iho prediction that this part of the  mountain would prove of special  intcrent aud importance.  Reformer Had to Go.

At  Hout Nek the Boer front had a line  of hills-commanding'-the sides of  .the nek. The Canadians and Gordons attacked the hill to the left,  and the Shropshires and Marshall's  horse, supported by a battery, also  made an attack on the enemy, who  eventually fled, leaving many  wounded, and the passage was  cleared.  Th'e Boers on the mountain are  now shelling the outlying camp,  necessitating its removal to another  place. The Boers have three guns,  on the hill to the eastward of this  place, outside the range" of the  Biitish artillery. The Boer shelling  is not doing any damage. The  enemy retained their positions and  the British are not attempting to  dislodge them.  General   Hamilton,  by  reaching  Bout Nek, after a full day's fight  ing, secured the Thaba Nchu-Bloem  fontein road.  Martin's Vancouver Ticket.  'Vancouver, May 2.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Premier. Martin,  Robert McPherson, M. P. P., ex-  aldcrman H. B. Gilmour and alderman McQueen were nominated tonight at the convention to stand  for the city of Vancouver in the  government interest. There were  50 delegates present, comprising a  large representation of the former  Deadman's Island committee.  Charles Woodward, alderman Baxter, Robert Kelly and D% G. Mac-,  Donnell were put up for nomination besides the four -mentioned.  When MacPherson's name was mentioned as a possible, candidate his  nomination was objected to until  his views were learned. A hack  brought him in post haste. .He de  dared that he would support premier Martin and his platform, reserving the right to ciiticise the actions of the Semlin government  while Martin was still a member of  it. He mentioned particularly the  eight-hour law aud the granting of  certain government lands. Martin's nomination -had been made  unanimously, and after this effusion of MacPhersou's a motion was  introduced on the same line. It  was objected to, however, and wass  not put. The sesfcion was"a stormy  one on several -occasions, and the  convention did not break up until  long after midnight.  Strike in Toronto.  Toronto, May 2.���[-Special to The  Tribune,-)--The - backbone- of "~ the  teamsters' strike is broken and the  indications are that the men will  return to work under almost any  conditions.

Victoria, May 2.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The Liberals of  North Nanaimo at a convention  last night chose W. W. B. Mclnnes,  M. P., as their nominee against  Bryden. Mclnnes has formally accepted. It is believed he intends to  run in Comox as well. The report  that Brown of Westminster is likely to enter Martin's cabinet is revived with an appearance of probability. The Time;- prints the rumor  that he will this week become minister of finance.  OPERATIONS IN FREE STATE  Preparations for Advance.  London, May 3���4:10 a. m.���The  immediate objective of lord Roberts  is to establish a line of British posts  from one frontier of the Free State  to the other at right angles with;  the railway, thus preventing Boer-  raids southward. It is essential,  therefore, that the Boers should be  expelled from the rugged Thaba  Nehu district and "be forced to retire to Ladybrand. ���'-" s  As a result of the desultory firing  on Monday and Tuesday, the Boers  were pushed bade .a few miles, but  nothing decisive appears to have  been attained. The Boers continue  following their harassing tactics.  One well horsed commando, operating iti the neighborhood of San-  naspoort, interferes with the British convoys going from Bloemfontein to Thaba Nehu. The enemy,  nearly captured a convoy on Tuesday, but they were driven off after  a brisk fight.  Preparations for au advance continue at Kimberley. Sir Alfred  Milner has written to the mayor of  Kimberley assuring him that the  relief of Mafeking has not ceased to  occupy his attention and that of  the military authorities, and that  nothing will be left undone to raise  the siege at the earliest possible  moment.  The British garrisons along the  railway to Warrenton have been  strengthened and supplies are going  forward. A mounted force has  gone to Barkly West in consequence of the Boers having occupied Winsorton. A thousand Boors  threaten the communications between Boshof and Kimberley.  Malala, chief of the Taungs, has  informed the British that the Boers  are preparing to resist advance at  Phokwaui, 20 miles north of Warrenton.  ' A correspondent at Lorenzo Marquez cabled on Tuesday that a large  part of the investing force at Mafeking had been withdrawn. General  Buller continues quiet. The Boers'  assert they are delaying au -attack  on him in hope that the horses of  the British will die of horse disease.  According to a correspondent of  the Daily Telegraph with lord Rob-  retreat surprised.gcrieral Hamilton,  who therefore collected his forces  and fell back warily into Thaba  Nehu, after sharply: checking the  advance with musketry and artillery  fire.. Although much 'ammunition  was expended on ' both: sic|ps, the  losses were insignificant, the; fighting being at long -range. The result is that the Boers are willing to  retreat, but it is.nofc in the power  of the present force to interfere  with them or with their wagons."

Kaslo, May 2.���[Special ~to' the  erts,   president   Kruger  making peace terms.  is   again  KIPLING'S GAUSTIG WORDS  The Public  London,    May  to Blame1.  3.���The Daily  Chronicle publishes an 'interview  with Rudyard Kipling. \Vhen  asked to what he attributed the  British military uu preparedness he  replied : "Maybe the great public  who have never taken the army  seriously, aud who have thus unconsciously encouraged the system  of -playiug -at -soldiers,���to people  who have objected to rifle ranges  because they made a noise or were  dangerous to individuals who  got in the way, to people who have  made as much fuss about a dozen  soldiers going through a farmyard  as if a field day were a bean feast,  and consequently helped to make  proper manoeuvres for many years  an impossibility, and to people who  think an officer a cad if he wears  the queen's uniform when not on  actual duty. For we have beeu  preparing the way for Stormberg,  Magersfontein and the rest. The  result has been tho loss of thousands of lives."  Two Reviews in Bloemfontein.

Later  lord Roberts, while reviewing Roberts' Horse, congratulated the men  oft their bravery, spoke of the gallantry of the colonial troops and  expressed the hope that he might  soon, review them in Pretoria.  Hamilton's Retreat,  London, May 3.���The Morning  Post has the following dispatch  from Winston Churchill, dated  Thaba Nehu, April 30th: "When  general Dickenson returned in the  circumstances related in my last  telegram, his own mess cart and the  brigade water carts fell into the  hands of the enemy and his rear  guard was heavily fired on.

The purchaser is1 Dr.  Hendricks of Minneapolis, one of  the. - biggest shareholders. But  whether Dr. Hendricks has bought  for himself or others is not known.  Hendricks went up to the mine  early in the week accompanied by  some capitalists from Seattle and  Milwaukee, and it may be that he  has bought for them. Eighteen  months ago�� and before the eight-  hour law trouble Frank Woods refused $65,000 for hid'tenth interest.  On the basis of this sale the Last  Chance is today worth more than a  million dollars and it- is -improving  daily. -' ���*  Militia' Called Upon.

The sultan of Sulu, with a retinue including several of his wives,  has sailed for Singapore, ostensibly  on a religious mission. A Hong  Kong dispatch to a Manila paper  says it is believed the sultan has  gone to Singapore in order to protest to the British agaiust the  American action in establishing a  tariff against imports, claiming it is  a violation of the treaty of 1877  between Spain aud Great Britain  and Germany, Germany guaranteeing - the Sulu islands free  trade, whereas tiie Americans have  established a tariff nearly doubling  the px'iee of ��� tobacco, rice and the  S��lu���staples of life ,most- of-'-which  are imported from* Singapore.

TRYING TO DO DIRTY WORK  By the Wholesale.  . The   laws   of   British Columbia  give every British subject of the  full age of twenty-one years, Avho  has resided in the province for six  months, and in the riding or electoral district for one month immediately previous to the date of his  application, a  claim   to have his  name inserted ou  the voters' list;  provided he declares before a witness thatlie has the- above qualifications.   It is the custom before all -  elections to secure'the ..''applications "  of all those who are entitled to be  put on the list.   There is no unfairness in such methods, for many  men who aire, qualified live at out-  of-the-way places and are unable  either to procure   the   necessary  blanks   or lose the time   to   take  their applications to the collector of  votes.   It is also foir that any such  application, if signed   by   a   man  who is not qualified, should be pro-  tested.'and courts  of  revision arev  provided to hear all such protests.  In Slocan riding alone nine hundred names have been  protested,  all the protests  having  been made  by two or three individuals.   This  on its face would go to  show that  an organized conspiracy existed to  deprive a certain class of the right to  exercise citizenship.     It  was . generally  believed  that in  no   other  riding in the whole province  could  there be found men  so  lacking in  manliness and  that spirit  of fair  play characteristic of the  Briton,  as  to  resort  to  such  methods   to  deprive   their    fellow   citizens   of  the  right to vote.   But that was _���  a mistake, for there are right here  in Nelson men willing to lend their  aid to just such another set of nn-  sdrupuloud 'and unprincipled  politicians.       This    week    two jtnen,'  named "George    B.   G.   O'DriscoIl,  capitalist,     and _  Robert   t!orlett,  miner, have filed objections against"*'  the applications of over three hundred   miners, laborer.",  carpenters, -  and   clerks.

Dated the .-Will day of ,\pi II, A U�� 1300,  This attempt afc wholesale di-3-  franehiseineut-of a-class���for-tho-  naiues of workingmen are alone objected to���cannot be condemned in  too strong terms. The man who  gives Iris occupation as "laborer" ,  has the same right under the law to  vote as has the man who calls himself "capitalist," and he should not  be deprived of that right by any  gang of unscrupulous politicians,  whether- they be Conservatives or  Liberals. The odium of this organ-  eifort in this riding and in the  Slocan to deprive Briti*-h {subjects  of their rights of citizens-hip  must be borne by the Conservative  party, for the men responsible for  the nufariouh bu*ine&s are Conservatives. The reputation of a political party that has done much for  laboring men is to be besmirched in  order that a few unprincipled members of that party in Nelson and  Slocan may gain a temporary advantage. The Conservative party  throughout Canada is to be branded  a*i the enemy of the class who work  for day's wage, so that a half dozen  rot-house politicians may secure  office.

A large number of people from the  Extension mines were present at  the meeting, but only a few persons  went out from Nanaimo. Mr. Rad-  cliffe made himself popular with  the miners on account of the active  pai't he took in the settlement of  the recent trouble with the colliery  owners.  '  Mr. McPhee is mentioned as a  strong anti-Martin candidate in  Comox district. Hon. Mr. Ryder's  chance for election in Comox is regarded as exceedingly slim.  The Geography of Nome.  Professor Heilprin, in 'describing  the geographical position of the  Nome region, says that it is the  southern face of the peninsular  projection of Alaska, which separates Kotzebue sound on the north  from Behring sea on the south, and  terminates westward, in Cape  Prince of Wales, the extreme of the  North American continent. In a  direct line of navigation, itr lies  abotit 2500 miles northwest of  Seattle and 170 miles southeast of  Siberia. The nearest settlement  of consequence to it prior to 1899  was St. Michael, 100 miles to the  southeast, the starting point of the  steamers for the Yukon river, but  during the year various aggregations of mining population had  built themselves up in closer range  and reduced the isolation from the  civilized world by some 00 miles.

NELSON.  @to i%vxbxxw+  The workingmen of Vancouver  liave decided to "do what many  others will do during the present  provincial campaign, they have accepted the platform issued by  Joseph Martin but yery carefully  rejected the platform's maker.  Captain Jon.v Irving and C. TV,  D". Clifford are in the field again as  candidates for re-election iu Cassiar.  They are members of the Turner  party, and in their address come  ont plainly in the_opposition to the  eight-hour law. Tn Nelson the Conservative candidate is nominally in  ' favor of the eight-hour law, but in  every riding on Vancouver Island  the Conservatives denounce the  eight-hour law. It is for the clec-  toz'S of Nelson, who believe in  the eight-hour law, to determine  whether candidate Fletcher will  swallow tho Conservative party or  tbe Conservative party swallow  Fletcher.   J. D. Piusntjci", who defeated  Stoddart in the List general elections has again announced himself  as a candidate in Lillooet. He will  support the Turner party and i. opposed to the eight-hour law, redistribution and other reforms which  the local Conservatives profess to  have so very much at heart.  This   organ   of   the   cheap-John  peddlers is much  worried because  the city pays its employees the going rate of wages.    It says that tiie  mayor is paying: rock drillers $3.25  a day when the highest price paid  by raihvay contractor's  is $2.50 a  day.      Tiie   organ   stopped   right  there.   It did not  go any farther  in its comparisons.    It might have  gone a stop farther and  declared  that the city had been extravagant  from Lhe day of  it&  incorporation  bccau&e it had been paying common  laborers ��2.50 a day when railway  contractor's were during the same  time paying but $1.75 and $2 a  day for laborers. The trouble  with the Miner is that it cannot be  fair wlien discussing any question  concerning civic or political affairs.  The announcement made in the  Miner that _Mr. Cotton would not  contest for a seat in the legislative  assembly at the coming election is  just as near- the truth as any. other  statement concerning politics that  appears in that unreliable organ of  disgruntled politicians. Mr. Cotton  will-contest -Vancouvei'-and one"of  his running mates will bo Robert  Macpherson, The ocher two have  not yet been selected.  Ex-speaker Forster arrived in  Nelson' yesterday from Rossland,  where he took part in a 'platform  discussion with the leaders of the  Mactimtes. Mr. Forster is an able  speaker, arrd on his return from  Fernie he will address the electors  of Nelson, due notice of which will  be given.  The Minor cannot be fair and it  is never truthful. Yesterday morning it stated in a glaring headline a  glaring falsehood.    It  stated  that  at a  meeting   of   the  Liberals  of  Nelson that a motion to endorse Mr.  Houston failed to carry.     No such  motion was made at the meeting,  houco no   such   motion   failed   to  carry.   There was au attempt made  to commit the party to a straight  party-line fight.    This attempt was  made by men who a few weeks ago  declared that the party must not at  this    election   make   a   party-line  fight.     The majority of those present were   opjjosed   to   any   such  wobbling and held the party to its  original declaration.  POLITICAL   POINTERS.  INCORPORATED 1670.  Our..

Interested in labor matters of the  last thirty years, as he has been;  Mr. O'Donoghue is an appropriate  person to be charged with ihis  task.

Soon after his arrival a Free  ���Press reporter saw Mr. O'Donoghue  and asked him if lie would state the  object of his visit.  Mr. O'Donoghue replied^: "I am  here by instruction of the government to give effect to the resolution  respecting current wages prevailing  introduced in parliament by Hon.  Mr. Mulock, the object of which is  to provide that wage earners shall  receive from contractors on public  works aud improvements not less  .'-than'the current rate of wages prevailing at tho time tho contract is  n .varded.

The  experience of some of the laborers  on the Crow's Nest Pass railway  work showed the wisdom of making  such a provision."  "But that was not a government  work?"  "It was in the sense that it received public aid and this resolution applies to all such cases. It  will apply to all railways receiving  government aid. It nnist be well  understood that this resolution  covers, not only works under the.  immediate control of the government, but also applies to all works  to which Dominion aid is given."

The British flag was buried at  Pretoria in 18Sl.    It was a Union  Jack that was placed under ground,  and John Scoble thus describes the  incident:    "I was the editor of the  Transvaal  Argus,   a paper which  ceased   publication   shortly,   after  retrocession of the Transvaal to the  Boer government.    When we loyalists found that all hope had passed  away '-of   the|Gfkdt.tohQ   ministry-  carrying put -the   promises   made  with regard-to the permanence  of  the British rule in the province of  the Transvaal, a number of British  subjects   met together   to   decide  upon some  sort of protest which  should be at once striking and capable of being remembered. The idea  of burying the British  flag  at the  very moment when the formal act  of retrocession > was  being  signed,  and in view of the room in Government house where the shameful act  of betrayal  was being  completed,  was decided upon.    It  is  unnecessary to say that. the interment of  the .flag  under; wliich   we  fought  and   endured" the   hardships of a  siege was not intended as an act of  dishonor or- repudiation, -but was-  simply as the burial of an old and  honored friend for whom we* felt  the highest esteem and the most  met with general acceptance, and a  flag was procured and placed in 1V a  coffin and borne to the grave by  about 600 whites and a following of  some 200 Kaffirs belonging to  the  loyal chief Zwaartbooy.   A grave  had been jn'epared in the corner of  a vacant erf, which could be seen  from the room where her majesty's  commissioners, sir H.' Robinson, sir  Evelyn Wood and sir H. de Vil-  liers, were engaged with jthe Boer  representatives in putting the final  touch to -a   deed   which, had led  to   the   present most   lamentable  state of affairs   in   South-Africa.  When   it   was    thought that the  signing away of British honor and  the destruction of British prestige  and good faith had been completed;  the coffin  containing the beloved  flag was lowered-into the grave; and  a funeral oration was pronounced  by John Munro expressive of the  sorrow felt by all present, at the  solemn     and    melancholy     duty  which had   fallen* to   the   share  of   her    majesty's   loyal,   subjects  in the Transvaal..   A ' tombstone  was erected at   the   head of the  grave, and the funeral, cortege departed.   I have before me- the 'in;  memoriam' card which, was printed  at the time, of which the. following,  is a copy:    "In loving- memory of-  of the British flag iii the Transvaal  who departed this life on the 2nd  of August, 1881, in. his fifth year.  In other climes none-knew thee but  to love thee. :   Resurgam."     When  the British troops enter Pretoria  they will probably, resurrect this  flag and give it royal honors.  out by the territorial legislature,  almost imanimausly. The legislators seem to have been stampeded  by   the   cry  tliat  this  restriction  $2,500,000   would increase the price of coal.  $2,391,863 These farmers are like the working-  $1,554,710 men who are induced to vote  against reduced rates by the  equally false cry that such a reduction would decrease the rewards of  railway laborers.

British supremacy has not  established ideal conditions, but  there is an element of justice for  white and black alike under British  law, which is utterly lacking m  government at the hands of the  Boers. ! Numerically the native  population of South Africa is more  important than the English and the  Dutch, and the withdrawal of British institutions from that country  would, spell the doom of the black  races.

The basis of compensation could not be agreed  upon, and the court is asked to  grant the order for the adoption of  a new survey and to determine the  compensation to be paid owners  who are affected thereby.  Lacrosse Juniors to Organize.  Lacrosse should certainly boom  in Nelson this year. The intermediate players, spurred by the  example of the seniors, have decided to get into the game without  further delay and announce a meeting in the fire hall at 8 o'clock  Friday night for the purpose of organizing. The matter of arranging  a match at Kaslo on the queen's  birthday will also be considered.  The younger players claim to have  an aimost unlimited supply of  splendid material "for an intermediate team and they have the enthusiasm necessary to make the  project go. The senior players will  doubtless encourage the formation  of a second team for many obvious  reasons.  .
