PRICE FIVE  CENTS  THE  NAMES OF CITIZENS  f.j  Nelson,l  Nelson,  To be Robbed of a Riglit.  Every effort should  bo  made  to  thwart the attempt that is beiug  made, iu the interest of Conservative candidate .Fletcher, to deprive  nearly five hundred British subjects  of tho privilege of  voting  afc the  coming    provincial    election.    The  applications of this  large  number  of citizens duly qualified by law to  have  their  names  placed    on  the  voters' list of Nelson riding are objected to by George B..G. O'Driscoll,  Jlobert Corlett, and Charles Henry  Palmer, who are merely aetiug as  % tools in the interest of the local Conservative Association, whose members are actively supporting Frank  'Fletcher   iu his   efforts to become  a member of the legislative assembly.      Thk   Trijwne   stands   for  provincial   rights,  and   today   its  managers will take up the fight  of  fie men who are being robbed of a  political right by a gang of as uu-  bciupulous politicians as Avere ever  congregated iu a single community  in Canada.

Continued on Thinl ptygis, ��� ~~ ,  Roberts' Wide :iFront.  London,   May    4.��� _:15   a. in. ���  General Broadwood's cavalry brigade   has   reach '  Isabelfontein,   28  miles north of Thaba Nehu.  Geueral  Ian   Hamilton   is. bivouacking   afc  Jacobspruit 15 miles north of Thaba  Nehu.   General Tucker's division is  moving eastward from Karee siding.  The   divisions oi. generals French  and Rundle are iii and near Thaba  Nehu.       Thus   lord   Roberts   has  50,000 men operating.- clear of the  railway   along, aj;, front   of; forty-  miles.   He is advancing slowly with  some successes,but nothing decisive.  Yet at all points Jof concentration  the Boers appear'inforce sufficient  to compel the BVitish to proceed  with caution.     The wide front in a  rugged, country���-; makes    turnin g  movements often difficult;.  Observers at headquarters iu  Bloemfontein seem to "think that  the Boers are preparing to evacuate  Brandfort and Ladybrand. The  Boers still holding Thaba Nehu district are estimated at 4000. Thoy  have among their guns a forty  pounder. One correspondent writing from Bloemfontein, Wednesday,  afc 1:15, said the British hoped to  cut off the'wholje'cpmmaudo.  The Bloemfontein\correspondent  of the Standard, telegraphing May  2nd, says:     "I  have   just    ridden  hither from Thaba Nehu along the  line of our advance, east of Bloemfontein.   The distance is fully forty  miles and yet almost evei y point ot  concentration iscoutested by enemy.  "General Rundle with the eighth  division is  posted   on    our   right  flank with orders to guard a strong  and boldly outlineji frontal position  iu a country of decidedly difficult  nature.    ,There   the    Boers   have  posted a number of guns of superior weight and ra'nge to our own.  ^However, they show no disposition  to do more than to keep iu touch  with us, and to harass our advance.  Further to the, west general fan  Hamilton   with    his    division   of  mounted infantry is pressing northward, encountering only a desultory  Ure.     The Highland brigade  from Valkranfc-' lias been engaged,  while general1 Tucker, commanding  the   seventh \livision   has-moved  eastward from Karee   siding and  has returned south followed by the  Boers.    Nevertheless, the cavalry,  owing  to   the  greater number  of  the enemy,r have. been  prevented  from completing the movement that  was intended to encircle the Boers  on the march to Brandfort, and .tho  enemy are now prepared  to offer  stubborn opposition on an entrenched hill to the southeast of Kroonstadt.   They will probably abandon  that position as soon as their stores  have been moved north of the Vet  river.    General Tucker's attempt to  advance on Brandfort showed the  enemy to be inconsiderable strength.  The colonial cavalry were  engaged  and they-losfc-twenty- horses while  under fire from pom-poms."  The British have captured Brandfort;.  Wardener, Idaho, transferred a  quarter interest in the Half Eagle  claim situated ou the north side of  Sheep creek, consideration $2500.  William Lambert of Nelson conveyed to Ole Skatbo and O. Lund of  Nolson tho Ladysmith and Buller  claims on the government road  between Sandy aiid Eagle creeks.  BROWN FINANCE MINISTER  Latest Political Shuffles.  .

Brown   of  Westminster,'    the   "Winchester",  of bygone political-days, went down  to Victoria this  afternoon   to be I  Isworn   in:as   minister  of finance.  This was the news  given out by  prominent   supporters   of premier  Martin.   Mr. Brown himself would  have little to say, merely stating  that   he  objected  on   principle  to  telling of things before thoy happened.  Tt is given on good authority that  the Columbian newspaper has been  purchased by the Conservatives.  The piincipal point of local comment iu connection with tfie government convention last night is  the change of front of McPherson,  M. P. P. McPherson was asked at  the meeting how he'would vote if  there was a tie between Cotton and  Martin. Ho mado the unequivocal  promise that he would support  Martin as against Cotton.

The Boers dispersed in several directions, mainly to the east  and north, leaving 20 prisoners on  our hands, including one commandant and 10 other wounded men.  ���'General Hamilton is now in  camp at Jacobrnst. As the men  needed rest after fighting seven out  of the last ten days, I ordered them  to halt for the day.       '  "General Broadwood's brigade of  cavalry arrived upon the scene in  time to afford valuable assistance  by threatening the enemy's rear.

CHAPLEAU MILL IS ORDERED  Construction Starts at Once.  J.  M.  Williams,   who   has   just  returned from Eugland,  leaves  today for the Chapleau miue, of which  he is engineer in charge.   The mine,  which   belongs   to   the   Mallinson  West Iiootenay Exploration Syndicate, is situated near Slocan City.  Mr. Williams goes to look over the*  proposed right-of-way for the aerial  tramway which  will bo 3780 feet _  long.   While in England he placed  an order for a battery of ten stamps _  and   twos Wifley    vanners    with  Fraser & Chalmers of London and  Chicago.    Four miles of a  wagon  * road will also have to be constructed to the foot of the tram, and Mr.  Williams intends to inake a quick  job of ifc, as he has promised his  directors that the mill will be running in four months from date.    As  the   wagon  road  has to  be   built  before the machinery can  be got iu  and a dam and sluces have to be -  constructed, Mr.  Williams has not  left himself much time to spare, but   .  he is confident that everything will ��  be running smoothly at the appointed date.

Mr. Stevens, the new lessee of the  Waverley came to Nelson a couple  of years ago, since when he has- .  made a host of friends ���without";  losing one. For -the past ycai he  has been thepropiielorof the Phair  news stand, and conducted the business -\ ith enterpriseaud tacfc*" His ex-  pet iencoin the hotel business is exten-  sive-and pafcrons of tho Waverley  will be looked after by*a thoroughly up to date, and enterprising  young hotel man.

Roberts' Kindliness.  The following is taken from tho  first number of tho Daily Friend of  Bloemfontein, published by the  war correspondents in South Africa,  and shows lord Roberts' kindliness :  "We have been requested to pub-  blish the following telegram from  the military secretary to G. O. C.  line of communication, Cape Town :  "'Please release Dolf Johannes  Kleyngeld of Klip Drift farm, a  prisoner of war of Boshof commando. -His field cornet's name is  Jan Terfontein. Give Kleyngeld a  free pass to his home and ticket to  Kimberley. Field marshall has  consented to his release on parole  at the personal request of his wife,  who came to Headquarter Camp.'  "It [appears that in this case  Kleyngeld was taken prisoner by  the British, and on his wife going  to lord Roberts and explaining that  she was alone on the farm with no  help of any kind, her husband was  released."  00'.00 . fi* .fi* ��� fi* ���  __��; *^. >����. .**��^ .vvix'V  ______���<*-���*  -"���^w **w��Si  '**~**_mr.  il)  ili  il)  H)  3G   Baker   Street  \l>  il)  il  il  %  ii  il  il  il  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.

During the  past two weeks some  i5.10'applications have been filed with  the collector of votes to  be placed upon  the voters' list.    The applications  came chiefly from members of the  different labor unions, aud as  the  Conservative  managers  were convinced that their candidate could  not rely upon the support of labor  sympathizers they found creatures  who   permitted   tho   ti.se   of their  names upon which to enter  the objections to 489 electors.     The men  who do the dirty work for the Conservative party in Nel sou did  nofc  enter a protest against any name  entered  upon   tlio voters'  lis>t, because in this event the electors so  challenged would have a chance to  foe lieard and tho formal objections  to' their   right to  vote  would  be  easily disposed of.   instead of this  the Conservative party's managers  seek to take advantage of a technicality   in   the  Elections Act, and  havo protested every application to  vote which has been made by labor  .sympathizers and  which   has not  beon posted a sufficient  time  to be  placed upon tho voters' list.    There  is one way ia which tho electors so  unjustly dealt with  may hope  to  defeat   tho   scheme   of   candidate  Fletcher's campaign managers and  this is to file at once a  declaration  that they are duly (jualified voters  and that they have complied with  all the requirements of the Elections Act.    For the convenience of  the voters whom it is sought to disfranchise, the services of a commissioner for taking oaths may be had  at The   Tkiuune offices   after  12  o'clock noon today.

A special correspondent of the  Montreal Herald gives the follow-  ing= sketch of the capital of the  Orange Free State.   Bloemfontein has the air of   a  busy place.   The streets are crowded with soldiers, army wagons and  horses, moving and   crowding all  day long.   The shops are   pretty  well depleted, as no fresh supplies-  have  come in for  five months  or  since the war began.   The price of  all articles is  extravagantly high.  But the military governor is trying'  to prevent extortion by fixing the  maximum price of all articles   of  food, but competition among corps  is so great there is little doubt but  that'higher prices are paid for many  articles.   Flour is one   pound per  100   pounds; bread,   three   pence  halfpenny  per pound ; sugar, four  pounds ten shillings per 100 pounds;  eggs, - two   shillings    per   dozen;  butter,.two shillings per pound, etc.  Lord Roberts, who has taken up  his quarters in Government House,  or,;as it is called here, the Presidency, is rather comfortable.  The Presidency is a large, handsome, well-furnished building,  larger and better than any government house in Canada. The furniture is costly and ^handsome. But  this magnificent, large government  house occupied, by, the president  and his family, strange as it may  appear; does not possess a single  bath.  This is the more strange, as there  are waterworks in the eity and  water is laid on to the house.  The parliament buildings, government offices and in fact all buildings  here have a squatty appearance, as  they seldom rise above one storey  in height. They are, however, well  and substantially built, and present  an-air of durability that is lacking  elsewhere in some -parts of South  Africa.-  All-busincss here isdone in English : in fact it ��� is the common  language spoken by all white people.  The shops are owned by English  people and the professional class is  almost altogether English.  The manner in which the news of  the capture of Bloemfontein reached the outside world will be of  some' interest. The telegraph line  to the south was cut by the Boers ;  to the west the field telegraph was  useless, as it had broken down.  Notwithstanding this, London  readers had a full account of the  surrender on the second day after  the capitulation. Tho distance  from Bloemfontein to Kimberley is  about 100 miles.   ,  Three despatch riders set out  from Bloemfontein during tho evening of Tuesday or the earliest dawn  of, AVednesday. Oitie was for the  "London Times, a second i'or Router's  Agency and the third for the Daily  Mail, London, England. Out from  the city tho despatch riders went,  making~their"way~in~the "darkness  or in the dawn over the red slushing tracks that had suffered tho  steady downpour of the night';**  rain. The breakdown of%a horse  meant a delay that might be reckoned in days or hour*>.  The Tunes rider mot with disaster early. The horse he rode fell,  causing a delay * iu reaching the  next station.  The Daily Mail .rider was still  more unfortunate. In the dim light  of dawn he rode against a barbed  wire fence, and to terribly lacerated  his horse's legs that further riding  was out of the question.  Binding up his scratches, ho found  himself compelled to walk back  thirty-five miles to Bloemfontein,  unable to ride.  So the Times and Reuter's agency,  each armed with duplicate despatches from tho. commander-in-  chief, were left to compote in the  race for Kimberley.  In the afternoon, Wednesday,  bullets whistled past the riders as  they hurried on. Time was precious,'  and the riders urged their horses  with all speed. Router's rider came  in first, covering the entire distance  on three horses in twenty hours  and twenty minutes, wliich is a record that has not been excelled.  The Times rider came in several  hours later. The enormous expense  of forwarding war news in this  manner can only be borne by press  associations or newspapers like the  Loudon Times.
