PRICE FIVE  CENTS  DISTRIBUTION   OF   RELIEF  Able Measures Taken.  John 'Hamilton,   trainmaster   of  tho Kootenay division of the C.P.R.,  roturned  last night  from Sandon,  where he spent the week in looking  after the company's interests there  and placing  things  in shape to do  business   on   a proper basis   once  more.     The bridge   gang   was  in  Sandon at the time of the fii-e, aud  for several days one of their cars  ���    wtis  used as  a freight,  passenger  and telegraph oflice.    A temporary  station was erected ou the  site"of  the   old   building,   iu   which .the  ollices will be located .pending':the  erection of more pretentious buildings.    The 0. P. It. lost its  passenger and freight depots,  with  three  cars of freight consigned to Sandon  merchants.       A   passenger    traiu  would have been burned too, but it  was turned loose on the  grade and  ran   through   the   flames    to   the  bridge, where it was safe.  Mr. Hamilton arrived in  Sandon  on the day after the lire.    At that  time all the residents had to be supplied from the New Denver hotel,  and  it  was  no easy task to get a  satisfactory meal.    Mayor Pitts organized a relief bureau, whicli  has  its   offices   opposite   the  C.  P. li.  depot.       Three large  tents   were  elected for a storehouse, cookhouse  and dining rooms.  Meals are served  here  for   two  bits, and  deserving  'persons are furnished with  tickets  by the relief committee  which  call  -for'ii.free meal. ��� All who are able  pay   for    these    meals,   and    the  funds  are   turned  into  the   relief  committee's   accounts   to   be   dis-  ti ibuted   elsewhere where needed.  A number of the  houses  oh  Cody  crock     have     been     utilized    for  restaurants and good   meals can be  procured at  these points.    Shacks  are springing up all over the town-  si/.-A-,  but no step  has been   made  yet in the, direction of permanent  i cbuildiug. ���* Hunter Brothers  are  doing business at their  warehouse  jthich escaped the flames, and E. R.  Atherton has  a temporary shelter  ,<-locked with goods from his fire  proof cellar.-*  The sporting clement pulled out  of" town to a great extent immediately after the fire. Since  then a few parties have como into  town with no apparent object iu  view or desire to work. Three special  j jo! icemen are on the look out and a  number-of hoboes have been run  o a of town.  The relief measures Adopted by  the various towns and in Nelson  w.i-5 timely and judicious. Sandon-  'iles were particularly pleased with  the supplies of clothing for ladies  and children sent from Xelson. The  garments were new and while inexpensive were modern in cut and  iK-at in appearance. A ladies' committee took charge of this department aud distributed the goods  where needed.  There is no necessity of San-  donites going thirsty-for-withiu the  just few days eight or ton saloons  have opened for business. Several  til? these joints were suppressed but  the balance can handle the business  without trouble.  JEFFRIES STILL CHAMPION  Hard, Qame Contest.

I  Vancouver, May 11���[Special to  The Tribune].���A largely attended  meeting, held iu the interests of  the Provincial Party, took place in  Vancouver tonight,1 the principal  speakers being F. Carter-Cotton  and Thomas Kidd. In the language  of Mr. Cotton, that gentleman  "burst, one after another, the bubbles Martin had blown for  the ad-  i*      j  miration of his supporters." ' He  showed the great effort the Semlin  government, had made to prevent  the Crow's Nest Jap.d ..grant beiug  executed and he refuted Martin's  statement that no royalty had been  charged on Crow's Nest coal by  reading the latters patent imposing  a royalty of five cents per ton.  He showed that tiie New Vancouver Coal Company's land grant  was legally executed for the. purpose of demonstrating the province's right to land claimed by the  Dominion. He proved it was better to give the Columbia & Western  money grant and take* back the  land granted, than that people in  thafc district should suffer for want  of the land formerly controlled by  the railway, and wound up a two  hour's speech by placing before the  audience the good record of the  Semlin government and the high  standing ifc has obtained, abroad.  Mr. Cotton gob a splendid hearing  and made a very favorable impression.���   GETTING NEARER MAFEKING  rand- was overwhelming.

"A telegram from Pretoria, dated  Tuesday, in the Standard and Diggers' News says: 'The British,, in  their passage along the Stelland  border; towards Mafeking, were engaged by commandant Bischel near  Taungs with great success.

London, May 12���4:30 a. m.���A  British column 3000 strong has arrived at Vryburg, 100 miles from  Mafeking. It reached there on  Thursday, and, though harassed by  the Boers, is pushing swiftly forward. Forty miles south of there,  at Taungs, is general Hunter's main  body, moving slowly and contending with considerable forces. 'The  pick of the mounted men are the  3000, who are -going without  wheeled transports, and at a rate  that may possibly bring them to  Mafeking on Monday or Tuesday  next.  Lord Roberts' narrative closes  with Thursday evening, but he is  continuing his march towards  Kroonstadt, 20 miles distant, and  by this time tomorrow he must  know whether the Boers intend to  fight there or not. Winston  Churchill says there was only 2000  Boers who opposed the British at  Zand river. Another estimate is  that 6000 Boers with six guns made  a rear guard, acting as such while  many other thousands with= the  convoys retired without firing a  shofc. . ,.

London, May 12.���The Lorenzo  Marquez correspondent of the  Times, telegraphing Friday, says:  "The diacussion in fche volksraad  concerning the ale of undermining  -rights���caused-an- exciting scene.  President Kruger said the money  was wanted for the purposes of  war. The members retorted that  this statement conflicted with the  declaration in the presidential  speech that there were ample funds  for prosecuting the war, and they  accused the government of squandering money. Finally Mr. Kruger  quitted the chamber in a fit; of passion, declaring chafe he had done  his best and that bo washed his  hands of the business."  in  were   as  Sentry Shot Him,  Jamestown, St. Helena, May 11.  ���On Tuesday nighfc one of fche  guards shot a Boer prisoner who  was trying to escape, over the  boundary fort.

God  will be merciful and strengthen the  right. Ours is the right." The  presidentadded he had documentary  proof of a conspiracy to annihilate  the republics*  Wholesalers' Beport.  The Nelson wholesalers  report a  good week's business.   The statements of the various houses  indicate that the favorable average of  the past few weeks has been sustained, and while there are not as a  rule any phenomenal advances reported, it is a fact that none of the  firms report retrogression.   An exception is said to prove the rule,  and in this connection it will be interesting   to   note   an    expression  passed in a leading wholesale grocer's     office    yesterday   morning,  when  the manager  remarked: "If  our trade next week is up to the  standard of the'last three weeks we  will have done the largest business  since the  firm  was established  Nelson."  ��� Yesterday's shipments  below: '    - "  Thorpe & Co., mineral and aerated waters.���Green wood, Trail.and  Rossland.

Turn Vancouver -World is endeavoring to make its readers believe
that premier Martin's trip through
fche Kootenays was a triumphal
procession. Ifc devotes about a column to what ifc describes as *'The
swing of victory," in which John
A. Turner, government agent," is
described as the successful Martin
candidate in fche Nelson riding;
while in the Slocan, some unknown,
person by the name of Cain is represented as snatching a Martin
victory from G. O. Buchanan, who
is described as a straight Conservative, and Bob Green an independent
Conservative, Ifc is in this way
that the Martinites work out their
majority in the next legislature.
In all the names mentioned by the
World there is bufc one man who is
_a _candidate~Bob_ Green— and- he
will be the next representative for
the Slocan riding. r
It is said thafc efforts are being
made by the Coast politicians looking towards the withdrawal of
Frank Fletcher from tho race in
this riding, as it is suicidal to run
two candidates against the Provincial Party, Mr. Fletcher is not
likely to withdraw, for he is both
btiff-necked and independent, and
has no particular love for either tho
Coast politicians or the local men
who were instrumental in bringing
out candidate Hall. Hall and his
backers helped defeat Fletcher
when he made fche race for mayor
last winter, and Fletcher does not

The steiimor Danube, Avhich  reached Victoria on Wednesday  from the north, brought fuller details of tho reported murder of a  miner aud the lynching of the inur-  j'durer at Lituya Bay iu Southern  l-Alaska.  The story told is wild and weird  plough to suit tho most ardent ad-  Tiiirer of the wild west style of mining stories.    It reads like something  stranger than a dime novel, that a  man   -should  deliberately  sentence  ���himself   to death,  and  it is  even  more startling to be told that the  miners in the camp soberly decided  j.tliat it was the best thing to do and  w ent ou and hanged him.  ,'    I.   II.    Nelson,  manager   of   the  l.ljituya Bay Gold Mining Company  I'tclls the story, the details of whicli  'pads  credibility, but must still be  incepted.    All   the parties  to the  case were employed by his company.  Sioveitz, the murderer, was a bad  Ijuan and a gambler, and had gone  on   a   big   spree,   ending   in beiug  broke.  To. continue his gambling he attempted to rob another miner Steve  Fedigo. The latter resisted and  Sievertz shot him dead. The other  miners rushed from all parts of the  ['camp and caught Sievert/. with the  .smoking pistol in his hand. Nels  ��� Christenson, who headed the mob,  I'jJ'eil stunned by another bullet.  I'Tlien the desperate man was overpowered and tied hand aud foot.  An hour later the company's  |,store held an oxcited throng of  '.stern, ltsugh men, two flickering oil  ���lamps giving light to the deliberations of a typical miners' meeting  [.To determine the procedure-with regard to tho deliverance of Sievcrte  into the hands of justice. He with  i oped hands was an interested but  s-ilont spectator.  After listening to tho discussion  I'I he miners held and the difficulties  they foresaw iu hnudinghim to the,  authorities Sievertz asked leave to  j.."-peak and he delivered himself as  iJolIows: ,  "You ,sce it's this-way," lie said.  '."I shot the man'and all you 'tins  IJknowit.    I'm not trying to crawl,"  jaiid I don't want to put yon to any  iniore expense and bother than tho  fi.iw allows.   I don't say I'd have  |?j-]iofc him if I hadn't been running  ||\\ iId a bit myself, but that's neither  .there nor theie. and that's gob noth-  siiig to do with the case now.   If I  iwas one of you chaps I'd feel the  |sAiue as you, and want to dispone of  ||the thing.    That suits me.    I don't  i-wtuit any  lugging me around the  Ifcountry to hang mo with a sheriff  [It.nd all the_trimmin5s. _Just hitch  ^your little rope over the nearest  t*tree you can find, and it'll suit mo."  *.    The miners were literally knocked cold by the coolness of tho prop-  o-jiLion but they coincided with its  arguments.    They decided to adopt  (y it and merely asked him to sign a  statement, admitting the attempted  (jobbery, the murder and acknowledging the justice of his punish-  l .ment.   Then as the self-condemned  t*j)i isoner said he did not see the use  Uo.  any further   preliminaries,  the  j��party went out into the moonlight  and hanged him by the neek.    He  never weakened from the iirst.    Ho  ;:agreed ifc was the right thing to-do  Pnnd the declaration he had signed  [iSvould  be enough for the lawyers  ��aud courts of Juneau.   Such is the  ;>tory of stern justice in the wild  Sjj.orthem mining camp.  to consider when they have been  naturalized in America aiid have  steadily voted for low tariff's and  free trade. If their share in the industrial prosperity of the United  Kingdom bo smaller than it ought  to be, ifc is mainly because they  have been forced back upou the  land when agriculture has been  ruined by free trade, and because  they have lacked a large and effective range of manufactures. I do  not perceive that the Nationalist  inventory of grievauces*ueeding to  be redressed includes this important entry of diversification of industries and employments, without  which the island, whether with or  without a parliament on College  Green, will be shut out from the  full enjoyment of a proportionate  share in British prosperity.  '���It is evident, however, that with  the    subsidence   of   political   and  agrarian agitation such manufacing  industries as there are  have been  extended, and thafc certain branches  of agriculture, notably stock raising and dairy farming, have become  more   profitable.    The   purchasing  power  of the island  has  been increased, as is shown by the revenue  returns,   and   the   savings   of   all  classes, in town and country alike,  have been multiplied, as the post-  office  statistics  bear   record.    The  war in South Africa, against which  Irish   politicians   have   inveighed,  has been particularly helpful to the  island on account of the immense  shipments  of   horses,   forage   aud  agricultural supplies at high prices.  If Dublin today is a wideawake, enterprising and thrifty-looking city  iu place of the faded, desolate capital which strangers expect to see, it  is because the island back of it has  come out of the Slough of Despond  and is blessed with increased prosperity.

LAY, Manager.  native mission preacher and his  flock rushed out to see what was  happening, and the spy had only,  time to get in a word of warning to  the preacher not to give him away,  when the Boers- arrived on the  scene. The real, preacher. grasped  the situation at once and, handing  over the books to the new assistant,  asked him to take the service. To  the relief of the assistant, the Boers,  after warning him not to be wandering about, returned to his post.  No doubt, had they waited for the  service, their suspicions might have  been justified. The new mission  helper simply says that he took the  the service."  ARE BRITISH OFFICERS STUPID?  Says it is a Fake.  Professor J. Rendelharris, paleolo-  grapher of Cambridge university,  Euglaifil, and who is considered one  of the greatest authorities in the  world on biblical manuscripts and  inscriptions, who is,in Philadelphia  on a visit to Haveiford college, ridicules the story of fche alleged newly-  discovered correspondence between  Jesus Christ and Agrippa and ancient monarchs, said to have-been  inscribed on the Avails of au old  palace afc .Ephesus. Professor Rendelharris in an interview, said:  "The whole subject is a' fraud.  Such hoaxes are nofc at all uncommon. There is something suspicious  about the whole report, and I shall  continue to believe it unfounded  until 1 am persuaded by absolute  proof to believe its genuineness."  Bamboozled the Boers.  "The following story," writes a  Ladysmith correspondent, "is told  by one of our native spies: On Sunday, February 4th, while coming  from the Drakensberg to Ladysmith, he observed two Boers following him. Not wishing to attract iitteufcion_ hy_ ijuining,_ he  walked quickly on to a jcraal near  by, which, luckily for him, boasted  a small Zulu mission church. Ifc  was Sunday and the thought struck  him thafc his only chance to escape  would be to play the role of mission  preacher; so, soissing the bell  rope, he rang vigorously.   The real  "I told you so," was the remark  of the arm-chair strategists directly  lord Roberts' remarks on certain of  his subordinates were published,  "British officers are a stupid set."  If they are stupid today then they  have always been so, and it is just  as well to note, before jumping to  hasty conclusions, that the same  charge has generally been hurled at  the heads of the officers serving in  the most successful armies the  world has ever seen.  For instance, "Wellington made a  very censorious illusion to general  Spencer's attempt to quell the  mutiny among fche Spanish troops  during the Peninsular war,,and also  for neglect of golden opportunities,  iu a most sarcastic dispatch: "General Spencer should have struck an  important blow at the French, but  only made demonstration of landing, and having thus materially  aided the insurrection, returned to  Cadiz. _ * I have placed him under  arrest."  A parallel case to that of lieutenant-colonel Thorneycroft is  given by Napier of a subordinate  officer taking unwarrantable authority upon himself with dire  results.  At Sierra the French were in a  tight corner, aud just at a juncture  when they were wavering. "Quartermaster-general 'Donkin sent orders to withdraw 1 the troops engaged. Suchet; thus relieved at a  most critical rhoment, immediately  occupied a-position across the defile with his flanks on fche heights.  . . . Nothing could have been  more discreditable than the stupidity wifch which Suchet was permitted to withdraw troops already  sufficiently,beaten to have secured  a decisive victory to a commander  who should have seen aud seized  such an opportunity."  Generally speaking, Wellington  in his dispatches hardly ever had a'  good word for anyone but Picfcon,  and he sent three colonels home in  one batch after his great victories  in fche Pyrenees.  Napoleon's letters, too, are full of  strong criticism of his officers. He  always averred that they were "all  fools except Soult."  Perhaps a century-ago, even more  so than at the_presenfc day, nothing  pleased an officer more than to be  mentioned favorably in a dispatch,  and nothing was dreaded so much  as censure. Bonaparte was well  aware of this and never lost an  opportunity of bestowing praise or  blame.  In one letter he called his chief  uction  IRELAND   OF   TODAY.  ���4   Writing on the subject of his observations in Ireland, a correspondent of an American contemporary  :';|nys he found the pathos of poverty  3 hero as he also found it iu English  yynd Scotch cities aud rural districts/  ��j_mt he also found signs thafc Ireland  lias had its share in the largest of  .the marvellous prosperity  of  the  Cnited Kingdom during a decade  Of good times.  "My own couvictions, based upon  the impressions of a previous journey in Ireland, and upon careful  study of its economic history, is  that the misfortunes of the island  H re largely due to the lack of urban  industries when the people were  inipoveiished by unprofitable agriculture. That is a point which  Irishmen have never been willing  To be sold by public auction under the provisions  of the Customs Act at Nelson, B.

Napoleon  disliked literary men, and it is  safe to say that" the war correspondents of our own day would  have had a very hard time  with linn. M. de Chateaubriand, a  noted literateui- of the early part  of the nineteenth century, provoked  tho emperor's iro considerably by  his outspokenness auont the Peninsular war, and came near spending  the rest of his life in a dungeon.

This week  our   readers   will be  startled to hear of an attempted  elopement in high  life, which  took  place last Saturday and was only  averted by the aged father of the  young  girl  pursuing  her and her  young lover and shooting the horse  on which she  was  trying to make  her escape from parental authority.  The Times has been able to obtain  but   few particulars   of  the case.  It appears that while the family  was living in North Dakota some  years ago the young daughter and  a   playmate formed   a strong attachment    for   each  other.       As  they    were    mere    children     the  parents    thought   but    little    of  the   matter.     On  leaving Dakota  there was a mutual understanding  between the  two that   when the  young man became of age he should  come to Moose Jaw and claim her  as his bride.   The time was fulfilled  some months ago, and as soon as  the weather permitted the young  man started on his long but pleasant journey, full of hope aud anticipation.   He arrived last week and  in due course presented his claim.  His sweetheart had remained true,  but he met with a flat refusal from  her parents.    It was the same old  story of love finding a way.    They  made up their minds to elope to the  States.     He  procured a couple of  saddle horses, and off they started  on Saturday.    The father had his  suspicions and   was   prepared  for  emergencies.    Shouldering his rifle  and mounting his horse he gave  chase.   He overtook them several  miles   out of  town  on  the Wood  Mountain  trail, and  after shooting  the horse ou which the young man  rode, he compelled his daughter to  return to town.    For several reasons   wo   are   unable   to   give the  names of the parties interested, but  tho   girl    is   tho    sixteen-year-old  papoose of "Bow" the Indian, and  her lover a young Sioux from Dakota.   The matter was ventilated  before   tho    magistrate   and   was  settled by '"Bow" giving a pony for  the one he had shot.    "Bow" says  that the young brave may have hi.s  daughter, but he must  wait until  she is eighteen,  j  A FULL' LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.

Some few years  back Mr. Grant-Govan came out to  British Columbia and organized the  Goldfields of British Columbia, Limited, which had a nominal capital  of ��371,042 in fully paid shares of  ��1 each. The company acquired  several claims in the neighborhood  of Re\elstoke, as well as several in  the Shoal Bay district on the Coast.  It also purchased the townsite at  Shoal Bay.

None of  the  companies, however, have had  a   very successful  career and for  some time past all work has beon  suspended on all the properties.   On  Monday last the shareholders of the  three companies held meetings and  after considerable discussion agreed  to amalgamate the various concerns  under the title of the Empire Gold-  fields, Limited.   The remaining sum  of 5s per share in the Tangier and  Waverley companies will be called  up and this, with other assets, will,  it is thought, provide ample capital  for the development of the various  properties.
