 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  Weekly edition by mail,  two dollars a year  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON: MONDAY MORNING  MAY U 1900.  PEICE FIVE CENTS  HOUSTON IS NOMINATED BY  Unanimous Choice.  At tlio convention of tiie Provincial Party, which met in Xelson on  S.iturelay evening, John Houston  was tendered a unanimous nomination as the party's .standard bearer  in the approaching provincial elections. The convention surpassed  all other gatherings of the kind  both in point of attendant'-? and en-  ihusiasm, and the ovation which  i he candidate received upon being  ptesonted to the convention was  one which will doubtless linger in  in the recipient's mind for ni^ny  \ cars to conic.  The convention opened aboutS;30  when the committee on credentials  seated the following delegates: J.*  A. Gilker, P. It. Flora ing, AV. E. McCandlish, W. F. Teetzel. John La-  i'ointe, Robeit Hurry. S. G. Campbell, It. Robinson, J. A. Irving,  Theo Madson, AV. A. McLean, P. E.  AVilson, F. Starkey. C. A. "Waterman, S. S. Taylor, J. A. Gibson, Gil-  bei t Stanley, David McBeath, AT.  Kilpatrick, G. J. Thorpe, AAr. A.  (i.illiher, Charles Hillyer, Thonias  Madden, Alexander Dow aud Johu  .J. Malone, of Nelson; P. Cherboand  J). McLennan, of Kuskonook; G. A.  Bigelow, John Dow aud George  IIu-��croft, of Creston, M. McQuaig,,  of Hall Siding; AT. C. Haywood, of  Poi to Rico; Almond Judson, of  Sudar; Joseph Walker, of Kitchener, W. It. Huscroft (proxio C.  Cameron), Rykert's.  David McBeath, president of the  local Provincial Party, called the  convention to order. He explained  tho object for wliich the convention  had been called and then requested  l he delegates present to elect their  chairman.  C. A. Waterman then moved,  seconded by J. A. Gibson, that AT.  A. Galliher bo elected chairman.  Theie being no other nomination  1,F.o motion was. declared carried,  and Mr. Galliher took the chair.  Before proceeding to nomination  fi S. Taylor, Q.C., moved that the  proceedings of the convention be  open to tho leprefioutativos of the  press.'ihrich was assented to.  The chairman then declared the  convention open for nominations.  In doing so, he said lie was pleased  io see so many delegates present,  �� specially from outside points. The  wry presence of so representative  a body of delegates spoke well for  thosuocess of the candidate of the  convention whoever he might be.  He then declared the next order of  business to bo the nomination of a  candidate to contest the Nelson  l iding in tho interest of the Prov-  "itn-ial Party atthe coming elections.  S. S. Taylor was the first man to  peture the floor. He said that in  i icing to moye a nomination he  wished to preface his remarks with  (ho assurance that he joined most  Juarfcily with the observations of  the chair. It augured well for the  J'i ovincial Party to s_.ee such a repre-  H-n t^h'e_conyeiition. JTh_e_delegates  jiTe^ent had been elected to fulfill  certain duties and it was encouraging to note the cheerful manner in  which they had responded. ^ It was  i he best possible evidence of the in-  U'i est which they wore taking in  (he campaign and tho cause which  the provincial party was lighting  A"'- . ,     -,  As to tho party to  which thoy  all belonged, Mr. Taylor said it was  practically tho only real party in  flit-   province, certainly   the   only  patty   worthy of being .called   a  paity,     (Applause.)      It was  the  splendid showing, with a majority  of three or four in the legislature,  was the only real party in provincial politics today. It was  a party which had only  been thrust out of power  by the most disgiaceful act ever  perpetrated  in  tho  annals  of the  pai ty which for tho past two years  had governed the province and  winch prior to assuming the reijis  nt government had presented so  -r-jfcelletit an opposition to the old  Turner party in tho house, it was  well known that an attempt had  been made to draw federal, party  lines in the present contest, but it  had been a failure. The Liberals  on the one hand had declared  ng.iinHfc party lines. Since then,  however, a Conservative faction  had attempted to force party lines  upon the people, but the attempt  was doomed to failure. (Applause.)  This party was known as the Wilson Conservatives. The other  party, or what was called a party,  consisted of the one man. (Laughter.) That one man was Hon.  Josc-ph Martin, but ho today had  not as a follower a single tuembpr  elected by the people to represent  them in the house. (Applause) In  view of these facts Mr. Taylor  --asked his* hearers if he was not  fight in saying that the Provincial  Paity which had held the reins of  power for two years, and wliich  %Yiiiit   out  of power with such a  British  empire.     Tho members  of  the Provincial Party, while in  opposition  and  while  iu  power, had  stood for   honest   government, for  free government,  for a good  clean  civil    service   performing   its   full  duty and for equalization in  taxation.    Following  out  this   line   of  policy the woiking miners had been  relieved   of the   tax formerly imposed upon them for working in the  mines (applause) find  the mortgage  tax  had also been  repealed.   The  Provincial Party since its birth had  stood for better legislation for the  working   classes.      It had   always  ���stood against monopoly and against  the giving away of the peoples property to those who were nothing  else than boodlers in the lobbies  of  the legislature.    Mr. Taylor said he  could defy any  elector in the province to point to a single  principle  or  promise   wliich   the Provincial  Party had made or given which had  not been fulfilled (applause).   The  Provincial Party was able therefore.  to outer upon the present campaign  with a  clean record, free from the  challenges and criticism to which,  too    frequently,   political    parties  throughout the Dominion were exposed (applause).    In view of this it  was  a pleasure for him,to place in  nomination the name of a man who  already   held   the   confidence  and  loyalty of a very great majority of  the   voters   of   the    constituency  (applause).    He was a man who had  proven his  loyalty to  the best interests of the city of Nelson, of the  Nolson  riding and  of the province  as a whole (applause).    In his newspaper   (applause)   and   throughout  his whole career there had been but  one ring and that was the  truest,  best   and noblest interests of the  province.      He.  was   a  man   who  liad   never   wavered.-, Even  when  ridiculed, <��� scorned,      and- -   even  boycotted-, he-stood-up forthe principle which he knew  to be-right  and in the cud he came out successfully and on top. (Cheers).    He tvas  .pleased to place bhe name of such a  man in nomination because he know  no stronger compliment could be  paid to any man than the compliment which such a convention could  make in naming him as their candidate. He desired to place in nomination the name of John Houston,  (cheers) of the city of Nelson, publisher, and he asked that he be  tendered the unanimous nomination  ' of the Provincial Party of Nelson  in the coming elections (Applause).  When the cheers, with which the  nomination of Mr. Houston had  been received., had 'subsided, the  nomination was .seconded by David  McBeath.  After a wait of a few minutes,  during which no other name was  offered to the convention, the chairman rose to declare the nominations  closed. In -doing-so-ho said-he  heartily endorsed tho sentiments  e-tpressed by Mr. Taylor. He said  he did not know of a better or more  desirable man as a candidate, in the  entire riding, than John Houston.  Ho was a man wbo had resided in  the riding for a great many years  and was undoubtedly more in touch  with the people of the whole riding  and their requirements, than any  other man in iL He had, therefore,  much pleasure in declaring the  nominations closed and ...John  Houston the unanimous choice of  the Provincial Party to contest the  Nelson riding in the approaching  elections.  S. S. Taylor then proposed three  cheers for the party's candidate,  which were given with a wilh  The chairman then requested  some of the delegates to acquaint  Mr. Houston with the fact of his  nomination and in response Hon. J.  Fred Hume and David McBeath  left tho hall. A wait of several  minutes ensued before they again  appeared with the candidate, who  was given a great ovation.  The chairman then apprised Mr.  Houston of his nomination, saying  that on behalf of the delegates appointed from the different sections  of the riding he had very much  pleasure iu tendering him the unanimous nomination of the convention as the candidate of the Provincial Party. The announcement was  the .signal for a fresh outburst of  applause, which was kept up for  some timo.  John Houston then thanked the  members for the honor which they  conferred upon him, after which he  said:  "If the men who ai*e here tonight  will make the same endeavors that  thoy have in former years in bringing victory to their standard bearer, I will be the proudest man in  Nelson riding on  the Oth day of  June (cheers).     I have fought in  the ranks of the Provincial Party  for the past ten years, and since  you have now promoted mo to  be  your leader in this fight, I will do  my best to show that you have not  made the wrong selection (applause).  It has been claimed that we are a  party without a leader; well, we  certainly will have  a  leader in the  Nelson riding (applause), and if we  are successful at the polls you will  have a man who will not be afraid  to stand upon the floor in the legislative assembly and  fight for the  rights of Kootenay (cheers), leader or  no leader (applause).' As supporters  of the Provincial   party   there is  not one man present or throughout  the riding who need be ashamed of  the   party   name.     It is a name  which is far more significant than  the name AVilson Conservative or  Martin Liberal. , I maintain that  neither of these names stand   for  anything but the personal ambitions  of   the   men  whose   names  have been attached to the parties.  On the other had the Provincial  Party is carrying on a fight for  provincial  rights and this   is the  highest aim that a body of people  can fight for.     (Applause.)   ,It is  much more creditable for a party  to fight for good  government, and  the advancement of the province,  than to fight for the supremacy of  this or that party iii federal politics.     (Applause.)   I see here  tonight men who are" stalwart supporters of the Liberal party and  men who are equally stalwart supporters of the Conservative party.  This means that they have sunk  party affiliations because they believe that party government is no  more essential  to the province of  British Columbia than it is to the  City of Nelson.    (Applause.)   True;  the time may come when provincial  elections will be forced upon party  lines, but when such a time comes  .it wilhbe time enough to declare  ourselves   party men.     So far as  local issues are concerned we are  probably of one mind, but while a  member must stand 'np for  each  section of his riding, he must use  his judgment", with respect to applications for appropriations, and if  the gentlemen present tonight will  bear this in mind they can greatly  strengthen the hands of their candidate.   It is not necessary for me  to make a lengthy speech tonigh t, as  we will have several opportunities  before   the   day of election j and  during the campaign, in every instance where there is an opportunity to speak, you have a candidate  who will not be afraid to speak at  any time aud  under  all   circumstances.   Your candidate will not  be ashamed of his opinions, nor will  he attempt to ride twohoises in opposite directions.      In conclusion,  gentlemen, 1 again thank you for  the honor you have conferred upon  me, and I believe that on th^9th_  day of June we_wili have~aPparade  through the streets of Nelsou with  brooms a burning and myself, at  your head.   (Applause)"  R. F. Green, the Slocan representative in the last legis)ature,aud  who is again in the field, was then  invited to address the convention.  In responding he said it was needless for him to tell them how well  thej'* had chosen in selecting John  Houston as their candidate. He  had known the candidate for  the past 10 years during which  time he had been serving in the  same ranks and on tho same side.  He had always been a champion of  the people and when he spoke all  knew where he was, and his voice  was ahvays in the interest of the  whole people, Mr. Green reminded  his hearers that tho present was  not the first convention which he  had attended in Nelson. He had  attended the first convention held  in Nelson, when Mr. Hume's name  and his own went before it for  nomination, and Mr. Hume being  chosen, was carried on to victory.  In the present instance Mr. Houston  had been chosen, and it went without saying that Mr. Hume, and  every friend of his who worked to  secure Mr. Hume's election, would  >in the present contest do what they  could to secure the election of Mr.  Houston. AVith respect to the Provincial Party,, to which they all belonged, there was no one who could  point to a single broken pledge or  promise. It was a party which had  served the people well and the  people would return it to power in  the general elections. As it was in  the Nelson riding so it was throughout the greater portion of the province.   In Nelson lie was confident  that the party luuTehosen a candidate who would poll one-third if  not one-half more votes than either  of the other candidates who had  announced themselves (applause).  Mr. Green concluded by saying'that  if on any occasion he could be of  any service to the party in Nelson,  in assisting the election of Mr.  Houston, he would be only too  pleased to render such service as.  might be desired.  Hon. J. Fred Hume then tendered  his congratulations to the nominee  of the convention saying that ho  was satisfied that Mr. Houston  would be elected wi(.h a very large  majority. Personally he would do  everything in his power to assist in  his election. lie was free to give  the campaign his attention and  would endeavor to go through the  entire district with the candidate  and make a personal canvass in his  behalf. As James Martin of Rossland was present, and knowing that  he would have several other opportunities of speaking during the  campaign, he would give away to  him without further remarks.  James   Martin,   wrho  introduced  the eight-hour law   in   the   legislature, was then introduced.     Ho  commenced by remarking that he  differed with candidate Houston in  federal polities.   Mr., Houston was  nominally a Conservative while he  was a Liberal,"but he'.would especially urge all his Liberal friends to  vote for the*candidate of the Provincial-Party.    Although he-and the  candidate differed iii federal politics  there was no man in whom he had  more    confidence    iri   than   John  Houston, and this was in a measure  due to his Liberal  principles.     It  would be a grave mistake for the  Liberals to countenance a Liberal  nomination   with _,th'e   Provincial  Party candidate in the field because  if it had any effect it could not be  other   than   the   election   of   the  common enemy, a machine Conservative,  brought   out' by the con- ���  spirators.     The true policy for the  Liberals to pursue was to stand by  a man whose policy was identical  with their own no matter -what he  i might call himself.  Mr. Martin then referred to the  eight-hour legislation and his recent  experiences   in    the  Slocan " with  Frank AVoods of the Last Chance  mine.  Mr. AVoods was brazen-faced  enough to say in the Slocan that he  was not opposed1 to an eight-hour  law; he even wanted an eight-hour  law for everybody. (Laughter). This  the speaker explained was the same  man   who   at Victoria  urged  the  government to repeal or amend the  eight-hour law by striking out the  penalty clause.    It was the same  man   who,   with   others,   waited  around  at Victoria, like vultures  for their' proy, in the hope that, the  Provincial   Party   being  defeated,  the old Turner opposition would be  called upon to form a government;  with a definite understanding that  the eight-hour law would then be  amended by striking out the penalty clause.     The   effect   of    this  would be to destroy. the_Iaw_ altogether.    Mr. Martin explained that  this trick had been played with the  Coal Mines Regulation Act and the  opponents of the measure hoped to  play the same trick with respect to  metalliferous mines.  Mr. Martin then explained why  he, being a Liberal, was not supporting premier Martin. He said  the premier had given his pledge  that he would support the redistribution measure. The premier even  went so far as to give all kinds of  assurances that hi.s support of the  measure would not be illusory; that  he would deal most generously with  it. The speaker said ho assured tho  government of Martin's support of  the bill and it was introduced, when  premier Martin violated his solemn  pledge for thesole purpose of venting  his spleen and vindictiveuessagain^t  certain members of the government.  The speaker said he was aware that  premier Martin was endeavoring to  wriggle out of this gioss breach of  faith, but he had made his charge  from the public platform at Rossland when premier Martin was unable to answer it. The speaker  then gave a running sketch of the  closing scenes which marked the  termination of the last session of  the legislature which was not at all  complimentary to premier Martin,  and in conclusion urged all to do  what they could up till the close of  the polls to secure the election of  candidate Houston.  Short speeches were then made  by Almond Judson of Sirdar,  George A. Bigelow of Cieston,  Joseph Walker of Kitchener, JI.  McQuaig of JIall Siding, and others,  upon the political feeling in then-  districts as uniformly promising an  overwhelming   majority   for    tJie  candidate of tho convention whose  nomination was generally conceded.  AV. A. McLean then moved the  following vote of appreciation of  tho services of the retiring representative of the district, which was  seconded by John LaPointe:  1 hat tins convention in l.uhalf of nil the t>up-  poitcrh of tlio I'rowncinl Party in tln.s ruling express to the Hon. J. Fred Hume tlieir hincorc appreciation of tho vci} valuable und effective _,cr-  \ ire lumleicd 1*,\ lum to this riding while a member or tho Semlin got eminent, and for the close  attention nluajs und willingly Kivcn bj lum to  the best lntcic-sts of tlio proMtice us 11 whole  .Ami this convention e\pie-.se-, its regret that ho  in the niteiestsof his pri-tato .ilium has found it  neccssu \ to lotire fiom political life.  The resolution was carried by a  standing vote and was acknowledged by Mr. Hume in a short  speech."  AV. A. McLean then moved a vote  of thanks to the outside delegates  in a rousing speech whicli was well  received.  The delegates elected for Nelson  were then constituted an executive  committee, together with the president and secretary, with power  to add to their numbers.  The convention was then formally adjourned and a meeting of  the e.xecutive followed.  I war oflice since the publication of  j general Roberts' dispatch shortly  after 9 o'clock last nig-ht and the  few unofficial telegrams that have  been received throw very little  light on the situation. The keenest  interest is now taken in the progress of the Mafeking relief column,  but nothing has been heard about  it since yesterday morning.  " A Central News telegram from  Durban says the Boers are raiding  in Swaziland and are .everywhere  carrying off grain, cattle and horses  in spite of the protests of the  natives.  " Pretoria advices state that the  Boers have exhausted their original  stock of smokeless powder and have  been unsuccessful in their efforts to  manufacture a fresh supply."  WAR IS PRACTICALLY OVER  LATEST PHASE OF THE WAR  KROONSTADTJS^ OCCUPIED  Eeview of the War.  Nmv Yohk, May 13.���In a cable  dispatch filed at London at (5 o'clock  this morning, Isaac N. Ford gives a  full review  of the South African  war situation as it appears  in  the  light of yesterday's news.   He says:  ���'General     Roberts    has    entered  Kroonstadt and completed the second stage to Pretoria. His left wing  marched twenty miles   along the  railway on Friday and encamped  within fourteen miles of the  town,  with the Boers iu an entrenched  position   at   Boschrand,  six miles  Jlistaut.   The right wing also advanced steadily along the Winberg  road, the cavalry brigade overtaking   the   Boers   near  Ventersberg  and   capturing   a   portion  of the  wagons.    Pole-Carew's division was  on the extreme left with Tucker's  division further east and Colville's'  division on fche extreme right. Four  brigades of cavalry and two divisions of mounted infant! y were iu  advance of the infantry supports,  and the bulk of the mounted force  was-under French's command near  the railway.   A hundred prisoners  had been taken, but a mishap had  occurred to a troop of Inniskillings  which had been suddenly fired upon  from a house where a white flag  was   flying.     Several    men    were  killed and wounded.  "The Boers evacuated their entrenched   position    at   Boschrand  during the night when they learned  that French's cavalry had "seized a  drift   over    the   Vaal,   and   Pole-  Carew's battalions took possession  of the trenches without opposition.  The following morning the Biitish  left wing was within eight miles of  Kroonstadt at 9 o'clock, and the  -headquarters'���stall" -entered ���the-  town without   opposition  at  1:30,  followed by the Imperial Yeomanry  and   other  fotces.    The   flag was  raised, and cheered by the battalions  as   they   came   np .'ind encamped  around   tho town.   The march  of  J20 miles from Bloemfontein had  been   made   with  lemarkable dispatch, find Roberts' army had gone  two-fifths of the way to Pretoria.  "General Hobeits' bulletin  issued  at 9 o'clock  recited  the details  of  thu occupation of- Kroonstadt, the  most  important detail   being the  evidence of dissensions among the  allies.     The Transvaal   Boers had  refused   to  remain    longer  in  the  Free State and had retreated across  the Vaal  to  their   own   territory.  President' Steyn  had  appealed  in  vain  to  the Burghers,   to  make a  final stand, and had Jiiitiself taken*  refuge  in  flight on  Friday night  after proclaiming another capital  in    a    remote    section.     General  Botha had gone with the Transvaal  Boer.-* and also general Dewet with  a portion of tiie l<Yee Staters, but  apparently the breach between the  allies  was   final.      The Transvaal  Boers would only fight in  defence  of their own territory and the mass  of the Free Staters were  unwilling  to cross theA'aal. ManyFreoSlaters  were retiring to their farms, and  tho    commandoes    with    reduced  numbers wore moving   eastwards  towards the mountains for guerrilla warfare.  " Considerable siiLisfaetion is expressed by this morning's newspapers at the occupation of Kroon-  stadt by the British. The general  opinion is that the resistance of the  Boers will now collapse all along  the line.  " \'o neWjS has been issued by the  Situation at Kroonstadt.  Kroonstadt, Orange Free State,  May 12.���The arrival of lord Roberts was hailed with enthusiasm by  all the inhabitants.   Three hundred  Free Staters were anxious to sur-,  render.   The bridge to the south  had not been destroyed, but the  large bridge   near   the town- had  been demolished. The Irish brigade  with the federals yesterday burned  the goods shed.   According to the  townspeople,  many of them were  drunk.     The Boers are now taking  to the, Vaal river,  where they are  entrenching.    General French encamped northeast of the town and  despatched a force to cut the line.  The project succeeded late at night,  but   unfortunately   after   the  departure of the last train.  Although the troops had marched  16 miles, they were in excellent  form'on entering.thej town. Many  arrests have been made, chiefly of  those who had maligned the British. It was found, too, that many  persons had been deported from  Ladybrand for ultra sympathy  with theBritish.  , ~ '     ..  1''President 'Steyn lias gone to  Lindley, the new seat of the Free  State government.^ A number of  burghers are trekking homeward,  and the opposition inr the Free  State is practically over.  All the prisoners in * the hands of  the'British here agree that-the  quarrel between the Free_ Staters  and the 'Transvaalers is so acute  that the Transvaalers have decided  to leave their allies, whom they accuse of cowardice ' iind lack of  patriotism. '   *  Most of the Transvaal prisoners  think that if they are: defeated at  Vaal river the Boers will retreat  to Pretoria, but .there appears to be  a growing distrust in the Transvaal  government. In a word the Boer  resistance seems to* have been  broken. The but ghers are fighting  without their previous stubbornness. They seem ready _____ retreat  on -the-slightest" pretext. Tho  prisoners, even the Transvaalers,  appear glad to have been captured.  They say they are sick of a "war  which can have only one end. AVe  have lost our liberty, but why  should we lose our lives? "  Lord Boberts" Strategy.  London*, May 13.���General Roberts hn�� not taken many pi*isou-��rs  nor defeated the Dutch in any decisive engagement, bufc he has  driven them from one line of defence to another and taken all the*  heart for lighting out of them.  The war is' not ended, but general Roberts has divided the  allies and brought the close  of the campaign within sight.  The Boers are manoeuvred out  of one position after another in  the hilly districts by the mobility  of tiie mounted force which  menaces their line of retreat  and keeps their commandoes apart.  There appears to be no opportunity  for an effective eounterstroke upou  which depends Steyn's only chance  of transforming the campaign in  the Free State.  Beware of Germany.  AVasiiinoton, May 11.���Senator  Lodge, while arguing for a larger  navy, said : " I am by 110 means  sure that some European nation,  perhaps one whose navy is now receiving such rapid increase, may  not test the Monroe doctrine."  Heavy Fighting in Natal.  London, May IL- The Standard  publishes the following from Durban, dated Sunday: "There are  persistent rumors heio of heavy  fighting in Natal. A Red Cross  train left last night for the north."  Boers Disheartened.  London-, May IJ.���4 a. m.���"The  war is practically over," says  the  Daily Chronicle's Kroonstadt correspondent,   and,   in  less   definite  terms, this is the view to be gath-  eied from all the correspondents.  They picture tho Boers as utterly,  demoralized   and disheartened by  lord   Roberts' unexpectedly rapid  advance, and by his facile  turning"  of the carefully prepared positions _  of the Boers. There was practically  no fighting and there are no further  details to give respecting the occupation of Kroonstadt.  The correspondent of the Daily  Telegraph says: "The Union Jack  was hoisted in the market place by  Mrs. Lockhead, the American wife  of a Scotchman. Most of the horses  of the Boers are in a wretched condition, but president Kruger declares that he will continue the .  war."  It appears that the Boers at  Kroonstadt had been reinforced by <  3000 men from Natal last Friday,  and that altogether 10,000 men  with 20 guns trekked from Kroonstadt''on the approach of lord 1  Roberts.  The   Boers  made   an    effectual  stand at Boschrand and had elab-   '  orate entrenchments  in    front of   ���  j Jvroonstadt,  which    offered   great  facilities  for a  rear guard action,  but their only anxiety, however,  appears to have been to get away  safely with all their guns and  convoys, which they again  have successfully accomplished.     The few   -  stoies they  were unable  to  carry -  away   they     burned.      President   ,  Steyn   is   represented    as   having  been frantic with rage, and having  kicked  and  cuffed   the   burghers,  .  after vainly imploring them to continue the fight.   . .. j ,  _ Lord Roberts, after a march  a\ hich is legarded as worthy of" being ranked with his famous" march  to Kandahar, has thus covered an-  OLi\.er stage of his campaign. JEx-  peiience has taught the. ciities to  be chary in accepting reports of the  Bocis1 demoralization.  The Ti��ues says: "The signs point  "to military breakdown on the part ,  of the Boei'S, but after the experience of the past, we cannot accept  tho reports of demoralization without reserve. The game of war must  be strictly*-played out to the end.  Lindley, the new seat of the Freo  Stale capital, is seven miles southeast; of Kroonstadt, half way to  Bethlehem, and was probably selected as a convenient rendezvous  for the commandoes now retreating  before general Brabant and general  Rundle in the Thaba Nchu district. ,  Btabant has occupied Hoopoellek  Jialf way 00 the road from Thaba  .Vchu to Ladybrand.  ���There is not a word of~news~ regarding general Buller's movements,  or from the far western side. Nothing is known therefore of the progress of the Mafeking relief column.  Appeal for the Loyalists.  London, May 13.��� Rudyard Kipling brought from Cape Town the  appeal of a well-known AVcsIeyaii  niini��ter to the president of the  AVcsloyau conference in favor of  annexing the two republics*. To  this appeal Mr. Kipling adds." "If  through any intellectual lascivious-  ness wc in England prefer to tickle  emotion by beiug geuerous again at  the English settlers' expense when  the settlement comes, all this weary  bloody work will have to be done  anew from the beginning Five or  ten years hence. 1 assume that  you have full knowledge of the situation in South Africa, but I don't  think you can realize how passionately and eagerly tho loyalists look  to England for a sign that the,  mother country will neither desert  them nor betrav them to the  Dutch."  German Opinion  Rkrun, May 13.  Veers Bound.  -The occupation  t;f Kroonstadt by lord Roberts  without resistance has caused the  greatest surprise here. The military expert of the Local Auzeiger  finds an explanation in the fact that  many of the Boers had deserted.  Another paper pays it is worthy to  he placed besides the Kandahar expedition. The situation is now  changed in favor of the British,  and the fate o�� the Transvaal Boers  is settled.

Mr. Curtis is  very solicitous as to the prospects of  his candidate in this riding. Ho  says Dr. Hall- should be able to  carry the riding, seeing that he has  the support of such well-known  Liberals as Dr. Arthur, ex-alderman  Beer and Archie Johnson, men who  fought so valiantly iu the interest  of the mine-workers iu tlieir fight  to maintain the eight-hour law as  a statute.  O  '  There is a light on among the  Conservatives as to leadership. C.  H. Mackintosh of Rossland has  money and is spending it freely in  hiring brazen-throated spellbinders  and iu purchasing newspapers.  Charles Wilson of Vancouver has  the prestige of nominal leadership  and a platform that not even he  himself stands on. AVhat a fall  this is from the traditions of the  grand old party that John A. Macdonald kept in power for a quarter  of a century.   The candidate of the Conservative party in Slocan riding was one  of a select little .crowd that put irp  a job to disfranchise hundreds of  voters in that riding, and now he is  appealing to these same men for  aid to land him in office.  .*!&���-���  Xif  Xit  Xit  '���0i''00'00_-_yk  \i/  36   Baker   Street  Vi/  Annual Spring Sale House Furnishings, Carpets, Oilcloths,  Linoleums, Window Shades, Lace Curtains, Portieres, Poles  Now is the time for Spring- House Cleaning and replenishing new for old.

Frank Metelier, who received his  nomination   at the   hands of   the  local Conservative association; Dr.  G. A. B. Hall, who was brought out  by Smith Curtis and Dr. Arthur as  an Independent Liberal; aud Johtf  -Houston,   who   received   the    unanimous nomination from a duly  constituted convention of the Provincial   Party.     Mr. Fletcher has  issued a platform that does not contain a single plank of the platform  of his party.    Dr. Hall in1 an official  interview   states   in  one sentence  that   he will   not  support Joseph  Martin  as leader .in or out  of the  assembly, and in the next states  that he will give Joseph Martin un-  qualified'support if he makes an  honest   effort   to    carry   out   the  principles   of   his   platform.    The  doctor   evidently   dops   not know  where he is at; he only knows that  he wants to run for oflice.   John  Houston   is supporting the party  that he helped organize inXootenay  in 1S00 : the party that was in opposition     to   the     Robson-Davie-  Turner government; tho party that  won  the general election  in-1898,  and which was oustod from  power  through   fche treachery of Joseph  Martin and D. W. Higgins and J.  W. Prentice, three turncoats,    it is  a    party    that   when   in    power  redeemed its anti-election pledges,  and the only mistake that it  made  as a party was in trying to placate  its enemies.  POLITICAL   POINTERS.  Price Ellison will be opposed  in  East Yale by TV. J. Snodgrass, who  was nominated by a convention  of  Liberals at Vernon a week ago last  Saturday.     Mr. Snodgrass owns a  sawmill   and   hotel   at   Okanagan  Falls, also a stage line between Pentieton aud Grand Forks.   He served  as a member of the legislature in  Oregon, where he lived for many  years   before    coming   to   British  Columbia.   He is said to be a fluent  speaker and   an  experienced campaigner.  K. C. Smith, a ranchman living  near Fort Steele, has declared that  he is a candidate for member of the  Drowned in the Lake.  A fatal boating accident occurred  on Kootenay lake on Saturday  afternoon. James Phillip Annett  and C. D. Lank were out in a Peterborough canoe and when across the  lake opposite the shipyard in capsized, and Annett was drowned notwithstanding the efforts of his companion to save him. The body was  recovered later on by chief of provincial police Bullock-Webster and  three assistants, and brought to  town. The deceased was a mill  man by. trade and comes from Watford, Ontario.

Some of tho gentlemen who were  hi danger of being carried away by  the alluring vision of agbvernment-  built railway.are now more disposed   to   atop''and   count  the   cost.  They are more inclined to this be-  Ifcatise of the evident insincerity of  '���(J. he premier's talk at some of  the  up-country meetings. When he does  not  hesitate to lie deliberately to:  the people   of   Kaslo   and" Grand  .Forks'in respect of little local' rail-  |: way projects, there cannot be much  faith placed in his word in regard  to  larger  matters.    Among   those  who were honestly, though ignor-  autly, inclined to admire the Martin  tt raihvay programme there is now a  better appreciation of the fact that  its author has not dealt cither can-  T didly or honorably with the people.  |r He has not laid before .them a single  V item of trustworthy information as  r to the burden which the execution  �� of that programme would lay upon  tlieir shoulders.    He has not made  , ii single effort to show what the actual   cost of the road would   be.  Tl*at information, it may be said,  would take time to secure, but the  objection  does  not   apply in   the  matter of investigating the borrowing prospects.     Only a few days  would  have been required to iind  out    in   the    centres    of   capital  I1 whether such a sum as $10,000,000  or $15,000,000 could bo secured for  i he building of the road, and what  the probable rate of interest would  be.  Jt is surely a, case in which all  available facts ought to be laid be-  i\.re the people who are practically  a-jk-ed to.eonbe.nt that tlieir property  1 should be pledged for tho loan.'   No  man of any discernment can fail to  sec thafc Mr. Martin is, trifling with-*  , the public when ho talks of such an  cuormoiih    stun* of   money   being  borrowed  at   three per   cent.    He  know*- that thepi-ovincial'thvee per  rout stock is now quoted below par,  aud   that   this being   the  case   it  would ' be impossible to float a new  i hree per cent loan, afc ptii*.   The  man is plainly guilty of wilful and  deliberate falsehood when he deals  with  this "matter as he does.   He  knows that the carrying-out of his  programme   .would   add   about   a  million dollars annually to the taxation of this province.    Some of his  .supporters    who    are,   intelligent  enough, to see this allege that he is"  not iu earnest in this -matter and  that his railway programme is only  jut empty Lid for support���a bait  I'or gudgeons, as ifc were.    That is  most likely the case, but whore docs  the conclusion leave the premier in  -the matter of morality? ���   Is now prepared to is$ue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on^Ska&uay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  to work for country or for money ;  he just went for love of fighting.  He was a count of France.   He inherited his title from an ancestor  who  was ennobled because of his  acts   in   the   battle   of   Bouvines.  That. was fought   (58(5   years ago,  when  knighthood was in its very  glory.    From then on to the revolution    the   families   were   soldiers,  nothing  else,  and   it is   said   the  traditions  of  the family included  foreign service exactly like that of  this last count, where members of  the family went against the Turks  for Austria and Venice  and even  for the Americans under Lafayette.  When   the   war   was  declared   in  South Africa a Paris letter says the  impulse  took  hold of Mareuil   at  "Biarrt'z, where he was staying with  his only .daughter.    "Should I come  to grief," he wrote to his brother,,  "I bequeathe her to you."   Then he  went  to Paris, made his will and  enjoined in tiie document that in  case he died a soldier's death he relieved his family from  the painful  duty of bringing his corpse back to  France.    Aud further he wrote: "If  1 am killed fighting, my wish is to  be buried with my comrades where  1 fell."    The account says that the  Boer army is filled with those soldiers of fortune.    TheBritish captured a German officer at Elandslaagte, and it is said thafc general  Negrea is about to go out to take  Villebois-Mareuil's place.    The Boer  w ar seems to supply the opportunity for  every   restless   soldier   in  Europe to go and take a hand, and  we  suspect that it is due- to that  fact that the Boers have been able  to hold out so long.

Judge, a lawyer of Brook-  1 vn, has been retained by about five  thousand militia men, who served  in Lhe Spanish-American war, to  t ecu re for them pay for their ser-  , a ices from fche state, in addition to  ���llie regular pay they received from  (he federal government. Ho lias  brought a test ea&o iu the court of  claims at Albany, which will bo argued May loth. Among his clients  are members of troop "0," the Thif-  t couth, Fourteenth, Kighth and  Twenty-second regiments of Manhattan. Mr, Judge asserts that  every enlisted man who served in  the New York state volunteer regiments during the war and who received an honorable discharge is entitled to $1.25 for each day of service whether active or iu eampr regit rrlless of what was paid him by  the federal government; also thafc  oflicers and non-commissioned officers are entitled to pay foi- the  sime period, but at a higher rate  per day. He estimates that his live  thousand clients served on an average of eight months, or 240 days  each, which would bring their  claims against tiie state up to $1,-  500,000. It would take more than'  #.>,000,000 to settle with all the volunteers of the state on the same  jbas-is.   A Family of Soldiers.  The French officer, D. Villebois-  Mareuil, who taught the Boers how  to use artillery and how armies are  placed, and who killed in a little  skirmish op north of Kimberley fche  other day, was a soldier of fortune  nf fche purest; type.    He did not go  The Boers and the Natives.  I will go straight to the point of  policy upou which Briton and Boer  have always stood in irreconcilable  antagonism from 180(5 to 1899.- I  will go straight to the real underlying cause of this war. It is the  uative question. Here, is the true,  parting of the ways between Briton  and.Boer. To the Briton the overwhelming' multitude of natives iu  South Africa form a subject race  bound to him by the ties of a common humanity. To ��� the Boer' the  native is a "zwartschepsel," a black  creature, who was created to be a  hewer of wood and a drawer of  water for his white master. The  "sfchex*sel" can not legally own land,  ot tgh fc not to be allowed to learn to  read and write, must not be married  by a minister of religion in such  way a.-*, to claim the recognition of  the state for his marriage, like a  white.man's marriage, and above  all must never under anyr circumstances be permitted to claim the  franchise as a political unit of the  state".  The difference between Briton  ancl Boer in dealing with natives is  irreconcilable and fundamental. A  Scottish independent minister, who  had been acting minister of a Boer  congregation i'or some years', told  me the other day that he believed  that-fche "Boers-would have~be~en  reconciled to British rule long ago  if they had not realized thafc the  British flag was in flat antagonism  to their whole native policy. It is  the difference between the law and  the gospel, fche Old Testament idea  contrasted with that of the New  Testament.    Over 250   years   ago  the Boers colonized South Africa in  the spirit Of the stern and harsh  Calvinism  of the synod of   Dorfc,  They took upon themselves as the  chosen people of God; thepredestiii-  ated lords of the soil, whose destiny  is to possess the wliole of southern  and central Africa.   To them South  Africa is the land of promise" which,  like'  the   Israelites   of    old,   they  have to win for themselvesby the  sword.   The native races are the  Canaanites who have to be driven  out and extirpated byN their' commandos as Joshua smote the men  of  Jericho.     Joshua   allowed   the;  remnant of the'Canaanites no civil  rights, and found no'place for them,  save as hewers of wood arid drawers  of water for his -victorious'' host.  The Boer leaders  take Joshua as  their model iri dealing with the native races.   And if an "alien white  race, like the English, conies and  settles in  South' Africa, with .its  newfangled notions that slavery is  wicked and that natives are human  beings,  so much the worse for the  meddlesome strangers.   If they settle in the land they must adopt  Having Purchased  the Business  Of Fred-J.

'���'���'    Trust Reduces Lead.  Tiie Amerieanv.Sinelting"and Refining Company on Saturday, reduced the price of lead from $4.70  to $4.40; It was a great surprise to  the trade. The trade understands  that the decline was owing to slack  business. This is the first change  made this year. An official of the  American Smelting and Refining  Company said :���' "The reduction in  the price of lead'was made on account of this being the slack period  iii the year. The price is now the  same as it was about six months  ago, when the busy season started,  we advanced prices materially and  we are merely reducing them to* the  former basis."  The Pullman Estate.  Chicago, May 14.���The final report of the executors of the estate  of the late George' M. Pullman was  expected to be filed in the probate  court this week. It is believed that  the report will show that the estate, whicli amounted to something  over $8,000,000 when the will was  filed, has grown to $15,000,000 under the administration of Robert T.  Lincoln and Noman B Ream, the  executors. The compensation of  the executors for handling the estate will be more than half a million  dollars.

Playing into Martia's Hands.  ICa.slo, j\lay 13.���[Special to The  Tribune.}���At a meeting of Liberals  last night Duncan AlcPhail was  chosen delegate to the convention  which is to meet here on Tuesday  to elect a Martin candidate to contest the riding. The leading Lib-  orals of the city wero conspicuous  by their absence, and will have nothing to do witJi Martinism in any  way, shape or form. The bringing  out of a third candidate eu&uros  yet another triangular duo?, for  which the coming election will be  famous. AlcPhail is a merchant  tailor, but it is not thought that  many sensible Liberals will suppoi't  the government candidates in any  riding in Kootenay outside of Ross-  hind. Alartin stock is very low iu  the Slocan riding, and it is believed  that the candidate in the government inteie&t, no matter who lie  may be, will have great difficulty  iu saving his deposit.

Kx-attorney general Kberls  left this afternoon on a stumping  Eosslanders Beaten.  The baseball season of 1900 was  formally inaugurated in Nelson yes-  day Avhen the home team defeated  the Rossland nine by a score of  eight runs to five. While the playing was not a fair criterion of what  both teams are capable of doing  later in the season, the game was  fast and extremely exciting at  many points.   The Rossland nine  made a somewhat showy opening,  while in tlieir first innings Nelson  did not shine conspicuously. The  match had not progressed far, however, until the tables were completely turned and the big crowd of  enthusiasts who were rooting for  the home team had a splendid  opportunity to vent their feelings,  which they did right royally.  The Rossland team was escorted  by 175 rooters who wore yards of  blue and white/ribbons, the club,  colors. They came in on the morning train and were."very much in  evidence about the city during' the  forenoon. A number of well known  Rossland sports were in the party  and they had substantial wads of  bills wherewith to back the visiting  team. The Rossland men had little  difficulty in placing their money  and as a result several of them  went home with more experience  than ready cash.  At 2 o'clock the Citizen's Band  marched to the recreation grounds  followed by a big crowd. They  took up a position in the west end  of the grand stand and rendered a  pleasing program before the game  started;> A,-.''couple, of thousand  people watched the match from  various points of vantage.  The diamond had been substantially improved by the work done  on it last week, the levelled area  how beiug much larger. A line . of  hose was laid to the grounds and  the diamond plentifully supplied to  keep down the dust. The efforts  of the management to keep down  the dust were assisted by nature  with a couple of little rainstorms  during the game, but the showers  were of short duration and the play  was not delayed.  About 2:30 the ball was tossed  iuto the pitchers box and Rossland  went to bat. The double umpire  system adopted, B. C. Brown going  into take balls .and strikes for Nelson and Burden doing likewise for  Rossland, the men alternating on  the field decisions. Rhodes of  Rossland was the first man to bat.  Waters presented Rhodes with a  pass to first base and made a  rather ungraceful kick over the  umpire's decision. A safe .two-  bagger by/Stratzel gave Rossland  its opening and when Roekenfielrl  threw wild to the plate Rhodes  sprinted home and Rossland had its  first run. Holland, Gibson and  Lenhart went out in the order  named, but Stratxe! crossed the  plate in the .meantime making the  visitors score 2.  Houston went to bat in Nelson's  end of the first, but flew out to  left. Waters followed aud- fell before Nefsgzer's curves. Partridge  then came to the plate and lined  out a neat single. He followed this  by reaching second on a passed ball  but took long chances and was  caught stealing third, thus retiring  the side.  flossland'S-part of the second was  brief. Devlin fanned, Leigh ton  sent an easy scratch hit to Waters  and was caught at first, while  Houston made a grand stand catch  off a long foul fly from Jackson's  bat.  Rockeniield, who had been left at  tho plate in the first, again went to  bat and fanned. Eacritt got a  scratch hit to short and reached  first on Lenhart's fumble. Emerson  followed with it hit which was also  fumbled, advancing Eacritt, Mills  flew out to centre and Neelands  came to bat, but was left there  when Eacritt was caught stoaling  third.  Jji Hossland's third Rhodes went  to first on an error by Partridge,  and stole second. Stratzel fanned  and Holland hit to short. Rocken-  field threw Rhodes out at second,  leaving Holland safe. He stole  third and came home on a drive hy  Gibson to left. Gibson was left on  second, and Lenhart was left on first  Nefsgzer   was   caught   by  ESTABLISHED 1892  H.   BYERS  &  CO.

In the meantime  Eacritt was hit by a batted ball  and retired, Mills made a clean hit,  stole second and was left there  when Neelands fanned. .  Rossland   drew a blank in the  fifth, leaving two  men on bases.  Phair was first at bat for  Nelson  and made a nice hit, which brought  him to third on a wild throw from  third to first.    Houston flew out to  second and   Waters   flew   out to  centre, at which the Nelson rooters  closed up, believing that the inning  was as good as over.   The unexpected    transpired,   however,   for  Partridge sent a hot one to first,  where   it was  fumbled,   allowing  Phair to score.    Rockenfield hit to  left field, where Jackson dropped  the   ball  and   Partridge went to  third.   Eacritt picked out lef t field  as   a   soft   spot    and   placed   another   ball   there     whicli    Jackson       fumbled        also,       scoring  Partridge and Rockenfield.     Emerson was thrown out at first leaving  Eacritt on the initial bag.   Nelson  now had a lead of two, and   the  rooters had a hot time.  In the sixth Rossland went out  easily in one, two, three order and  Nelson also drew a blank. In the  seventh Rossland made two runs  which were their last, while Nelson  failed to better their tally.  Nelson went to bat for the last  time in the eighth and Phair and  Houston crossed the plate.  The crowd cheered heartily for  victors and vanquished after the  game. The Rossland people got  away on the " evening train  fchorougly satisfied with their treatment while in the city.  The extended score for the game  is appended :  _SI.Ij__.0N. I.il.    Ii.
