 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSOIST:  WEDNESDAY MORNING  MAY 16 J 900.  PEICE FIVE CENTS  CANDIDATES TALK AT YMIR  Great Houstonite Success.  Ymik, May  15.���[Special  to The  Tribune.]��� All three candidates for  tlio honor  of representing  Nelson  riding iu  the  legislative  assembly  arrived here ou the morning train,  and   soon   afterwards  ib   was   announced   that   a    public    meeting  would be held ab the Miners' Union  hall at 2 o'clock, tit whicli all three  e.�� ndidates would be allowed equal  time.      The meeting was in control  of 'the Provincial Party, and John  Dewar, one of the best known and  most   respected  miners  and  prospectors in Ymir district,  occupied  tho chair.    Ab,ou$ .75  people  were  present, and all  speakers were lis-  lened to with close attention. Candid ite Houston opened and spoke in  a general   way   for  about   thirty  minutes.  He explained why he was  ;i. supporter of the Provincial Party,  and showed clearly that that party  had just as good a prospect of securing control of the government as  either of the other parties that had  candidates in the field.  He was   followed   by  candidate  Fletcher, who claimed that  he was  opposed to the repeal or alteration  of the eight-hour law; that he had  helped to shape mining  legislation  in the iiast, and that if elected he  would do his utmost to promote the  mining industry.    He disclaimed all  connection   with   the  attempt   to  keep  off- tho  voters' list   the. 489  names that are now hung up in the  riding.    This disclaimer A\-as in answer to questions from Alfred Parr,  secretary of the Ymir Miners' Union.  Mr. Parr  asked  candidate Flet-  chcr point blank whether  the Conservative Association of Nelson was  nol, responsible for the  attempt at  striking the names oil' the list.    To  this  Mr.  Fletcher, replied  that he  was not personally aware Lthat  the,  attempt   was   to   be made.    This  a "'_wcr was not satisfactory to Mr.  Purr.    ]le then .repeated the  question, but  Mr, Fletcher  declined to  ' answer for tho association and contented himself with repeating that  he personally had no knowledge of  l lie scheme to disfranchise so many  voters.  Candidate Hall followed, and bo-  fore   he   got   through he did  not  know where he was at.- He claimed  .Iirst of all that the speakers -thai  > i-.une  before  him    had   stolon  his  ideas,   and   that   to   repeat  them  Avould be tiring  to  the   audience.  11'o then  claimed  that he  was  au  unwilling candidate; that  he only  f ifyred himself at the solicitation of  hi.s   fi lends   and    the   miners   for  Avhom -he   Avas   the   doctor.     He  {���1'iimed that   he had not been a  candidate before any of the  meetings held by the Liberal As&ocia-  i \ m of Nelson,   lie then impugned  Cotton's personal honesty and said  Unit candidate  Houston   had  not  supported Hume at the last elec-  _tion,_ Ho .oven _Avent_ f*irfcher_and  f.tid bhat it Avas because of the four  ( r  iivo  telegrams  that  he    (Hall)  sent lo Victoria bhat Hume secured  the portfolio of minister of mines.  Candidate Houston was then called  Km   to   reply,  in  the   course of  deli he scored candidate Hall for  misrepresentations.     Ho challenged Hall's statement that he had  boon  brought out by tho miners.  Tiie   facts of  the case were that  Hall had  been   brought out by a  small faction oi." tho Liberal  Association  of   Xelson Avhich  Avas  opposed to the eight-hour huv and to  tlio  men   who   supported   ib.    Mr.  Houston also challenged the  truth  of J fall's statement that ho had secured the  portfolio of minister of  mines for J.  Fred Hume upou the  .strength of some telegrams to Vie-  ioria.     The  truth of this matter  Avas that while Hall AA'as in  Nelson  he (Houston) Avas in Victoria, Avorking in the interest of Mr. Hume as  a candidate for the portfolio. . Mr.  JI foiiston also denied the statement  oi' Mr. Hall that during  the last  elections he (Houston) had not supported   the   candidature    of    Mr.  Hume.   In refuting this falsehood  Hi:  Houston  stated  that ho  supported   the   candidature    of    Mr.  ] fume in the columns of The Tiii-  /M'nb, and contributed his time and  juonfty as  Avell, facts  Avhich  Avere  yrell known throughout the.riding.  Alfred   Parr,   secretary   of    the  Yntir minors' union, made a few remarks   Ho confined himself clpefjy  to the platform of Mr. Cotton, and  out a  few questions to candidate  Jfousfcon, which Avere answered in a  straightforward manner.  ��. H. Taylor, Q. C, was then  called upon by tha chair and occn-  jM'etl 25 ��)tmites.     IJe tfeali, Avith  "1  wl  -his  the record and policy of the Pro-  A'incial Party, and in this connection pointed out that candidate  Hall, if elected, Avould have neither  a leader nor a folloAver in the legislature unless he meant to follow  premier Martin. Mr. Taylor then  asked candidate Hall straight out  Avhether he was a follower of Martin. Hall tried to evade the question and replied that he Avould  support the Martin platform. Mr.  Taylor repeated the question, asking candidate Hall whether he  would support the man, but the  doctor, refused to face the issue,  and repeated that he wo.uld support the platform. Mr. Taylor said  that the only inference which could  be taken from candidate Hall's  reply was that he was ashamed of  his leader, and Avith respect to the  platforms of the different parties,  so far as they affected the pro-  A'ince they were all very much  alike.  Candidate Hall's refusal to publicly recognize Martin had a very  damaging effect upou his Ymir'f 61-  loAving and Avill undoubtedly turn  most of his would be supporters to  the other candidates.  Mr. Taylor then dealt with the  criticism which was being directed  agaiust candidate  Houston  as  an  independent.       He   reminded   his  hearers that Mr. Houston  was  the  candidate chosen at a representative  convention of-"the "'Provincial Party,  the party which,  while in  power,  had passed the legislation so much  desired by organized labor,  Avhich  had championed the cause of labor  against  all   the   influences ��� which  could be brought to bear against it,  and Avhich Avent doAvn to defeat in  the cause of labor.   In addition to  being the candidate of the Provincial   Party,   candidate   Houston  Avas furthermore a man  Avho personally had championed the cause  of labor from the first in the face  of adverse  criticism,  a system  of  boycotting   and   pecuniary losses.  He Avas a candidate avIxo had  been  tried   in   their   interest   and   iiis  candidature would put Uiem-to the  test whether they Avere willing to  turn down' the party and the man  who had fought in their interest, or  whether from mere gratitude, if for  nothing else, they Avould acknowledge tho services rendered.  With respect to the candidature  of Mr. Hail, the speaker said he was  running  in  opposition' to  the  expressed Avish of the Liberal Association of Nelson, the officers of Avhieh  association   and   the" majority   of  Avhose   members  'were supporting  the candidature   of Mr. Houston,  Mr. JIall Avas not the candidate of  the Liberal Association, but of a  faction.   His name went before a  representative meeting of the association as a*candidate but he Avas  turned   down.   Mr. Hall   had   en-  deavored   to   deny   this,   but  Mr.  Taylor said he could recite the circumstances, and he defied Mr. Hall  or Mr. Parr. Avho were at the moot-*  ing in question, to deny the truth  of his assertion.   The question of  .Mr-Hall's candidature-camo-up at  the close of the last annual meeting  of the Liberal Association.   It Avas  in trodueed by A. M. Johnson, Avho  prefaced his motion Avitfa  the remark that the members had all attended   wibh   one chief object in  ���view, and that they   were  about  going away Avithout attending to  ib.    lie then moved that tbe Liberal   Association    pub    a    candidate   iu    tho    field    to    contest  tho Nelson  riding, and mentioned  Dr. Hall as tho man  above all men  who could successfully run in  the  district.   This motion, Mr. Taylor  said.   Avas   discussed,   and    nearly  every person speaking upon it mentioned  Dr. Hall's name.   When it  came to a vote Dr. Hall asked to be  excused from voting, as ho Avas an  interested party, and the motion  Avas' defeated on a vote of 35 to 50.  in   view   of    those    facts,   Avhich  neither Dr. Hall nor Mr. Parr could  dispute, Mr. Taylpr said he could  not understand how candidate Hall  could say that his name Avas not  before the Liberal Association of  Nelson as a prospective candidate.  At the close of the meeting candidate Fletcher moved a vote of  thanks to the chairman, which AAras  seconded by candidate Houston and  carried unanimously.  BOER   DELEGATES   ARRIVE  of that city  to them, and  carriages for  Gallery Play Starts.  New York, May 15.���The peace  envoys from South Africa to the  United States, Abraham Fischer, J.  M. A.  Wolmarans and C. H. Wessels arrived here on the  steamer  Maasdam  today.   They Avere met  by a committee Avhich. went down  the bay to greet them and later they  Avere greeted  by a body of Boer  sympathizers gathered on the pier  at Hoboken, where the Maasdam  docked.    The mayor  extended a welcome  the party then took  the Hotel , Manhattan, where the  envoys will lodge during their stay  in this city.   When the committee  boarded   the. Maasdam down the  bay, former judge Von Nossen delivered an address of Avelcome to  the envoys.  Mr. Fisher responded as follows:  "I thank, you most heartily for this.  Avelcome which you have just extended to us. The Avarmth of a  welcome does not lie in the length  of words-used but in deeds. We  believe the American, people-will  also extend to us a hearty Avelcome'.  For ours is a cause .that is dear to  their hearts. We are fighting for  our country. As soon as they come  to understand our' case, they will, I  believe, echo the welcome you have  just given us."  The envoys were eager to hear  /the latest news from... the AA'ar.  When told at the Hotel Manhattan  of the reverse to their arms and  the advance made by lord Roberts  they shrugged their shoulders.  "Such neAvs," said Mr. Fischer,  "does not disconcert us in the least.  We read these dispatches betAveen  the lines, but what difference does  one or a dozen reverses make to us.  We promise neve/' to stop until Ave  have gained what we are fighting  for, our independence."  The delegates were, reticent regarding their plans. "We cannot  say anything Avhich^may hinder  our eaiise.'' said Mr> Fischer. ''We  should like to' ha\re the government  arbitrate with. England, and undoubtedly we shall go to Washing  the United States has authority to  submit important propositions to  the American government. I have  the highest authority for making  the statement that rather than see  thoir country conquered by England, the commissioners aro empowered to ask the United States to  assume a protectorate over the republics, this protectorate to tend, if  desired, toward eventual annexation as territories or states.  BEGIN NEW DEPOT AT ONCE  BOERS ASSAULT MAFEKING  They Claim .'-Victory.  London, May 15.���A-dispatch to  the Daily Mail from ^Lorenzo Marquez, dated Tuesday,'says: "There  is now no doubt that there was  fighting at Mafeking on Saturday,  but it is believed to have gone in  favor of the garrison. All that  can be ascertained of a reliable  character follows: 'The Boers,  using artillery, attacked the: town  oh.Saturday.. Very soon the Kaffirs'  location was in flames. Some say  as a result Of the fight, others as a  result of treachery. "Fighting at  close quarters became general, and  in the midst of the .confusion the  Boers gained jaossession- of the  Kaffirs'location, from...-which point  of vantage they brought their guns  to bear on the towff at close range.

Ottawa, May 15.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���A fire by-laAV affecting  the entire city ,of Hull lias been  adopted by Hull council. By its  regulations all dwellings, stores,  factories, etc., erected in the transpontine city in the future must be  fire proof. All sheds, stables, outbuildings, etc., if built Avithin 80  feet of a street, must also be made  X>roof against fire.  ton and try to  have an audience  with   president  McKiniey.   If Ave  cannot induce the government to  do what Ave like we shall try to1  arouse the people so, that they Avill  compel the government to recognize us in that Avay."  <���   When asked as to the truth of  the report that some of the Red  Cross men Avere fighting iu the Boer  army, Mr. Fischer said:    "Of this I  knoAV nothing, though some may  haA'e joined our forces when they  kueAv the truth.     Some attaches,  who have gone down there to see  us fight, have, Avhen  they paw us  fight aud kneAV the reasons for the  war, said to us:    'Give us guns, for  we Avant to fight with you.'"    Mr.  Fischer said their future plans Avere  still undecided and~tlu.it they would  be largely guided by events as they  happened.   As it is   bhe reception  coinmittee.have recehred invitations  for the delegates from the mayor*  of sixty towns and cities in the  United States,  and  ifc is probable  that they will visit many places before sailing again for the continent.  According to the Evening World,  Mr.   Fischer,   late this   afternoon,  made the following statement:  "Our intention iioav is to apply to  bhe government for aid. Failing in  that, we shall appeal to tho people  that they may give ns" practical  aid. I bear an official message to  .president McKiniey, but I cannot  speak of it before it is delivered.  We will visit Washington and  transact our business. We are entrusted Avith the greatest authority, and anything we may do, will  be upheld by the South African  countries. I cannot speak of an  American protectorate. If we arc  unsuccessful in securing mediation  or other intervention, there are  seA'eral other contingent steps that  Ave shall try."  "The subject of a protectorate  has been much discussed in Pretoria. If Ave fail in the United  States, I may say that we will seek  .Russian aid. If America should  take action she Avould be upheld by  the powers of Europe. But Ave  look to America because it is a republic. ,We Avould rather have  American aid than help from any  other country. As a friend, 1 think  she Avould be more influential.  Surely there is some way to secure  peace without loss of prestige to  England or independence to us."  New York, May 15.���The Herald's Pretoria correspondent says;  The commission which has gone to  despite its Attenuated numbers,  succeeded in surrounding the party  of Boers Avho had? - captured the  Kaffirs' location. Severe fighting  followed, but, according to the  latest reports, the Boers still hold  the location in which they arc  probably surrounded.'  "The truth is, I believe, that the  Pretoria authorities, knoAviug of  the progress of the relief column,  gave orders to general Synman to  storm the place. As soon as the  location was in flames, Boer bullc-*  tins of victory Avere "/lying about  everywhere to enconra'gc the Aveak-  kneed burghers. Boers' avJio came  down heie yesterday from Pretoria  "produce for the edification of incredulous Britishers two telegrams  ��� by officials, one of Avhich was signed  by Synman and said: 'I-Avas lucky  enough to capture Baden-Powell  Avith nine hundred this morning.'  "There is no doubt about the  heavy fighting. A telegram from  the Portuguese consul to the governor-general here confirms this.  and* there is little doubt of the occupation of the Kaffirs' location,  but similar telegrams were published at Pretoria about Ladysmith, and quite recently about  Wepener, just before colonel Dalgety was relieved.'"  0. P. E. in New Watcom.  Nkw  Watcom, May   IS.���It is  announced today thab the Canadian  Pacific railroad lias made a traffic  agreement "u-ifch   tJTe    BellingliaTu  Bay & British Columbia railroad,  by Avliich the former is enabled to  secure   entrance   into . this   city.  Northern Pacific officials have been  in conference with  president Cornwall   of   the   Buy road   for  three  days, wibh the A'lew of purchasing  the road, which, hud tlio deal been  consummated, would have shut the  Canadian Pacific out of American  territory    west   of    tho   Rockies,  President   Cornwall   today   made  the    following     .statement:   "Tiie  Bellingham      Bay      <fc       British  Columbia road has not been sold to  the   Northern   Pacific,     We  havo  concluded a close traffic agreement  Avith the Canadian Pacific, Avhercby  the passenger coaches of that road  Avill soon bo run into this eity over  our road.   1 am not apprised as to  whether or nofc the Canadian Pacific  Avill discontinue its present traffic  agreement Avith the Seattle <fc International,   OA'er   Avhich    ifc   now  enters Seattle."    The present traffic  arrangements between theCanadian  Pacific and the Seattle International  soon    expire,   and    the   Northern  Pacific, which iioav controls the last  named road, is said  to haA'e given  the   Canadian Pacific  road  notice  that it Avould nofc be renewed.  Contradictory Rumors.  LOKKN'iiO Marqckz, May 13.���  Telegrams received here report  very heavy fighting at Mafeking.  Pretoria reports that Mafeking has  fallen, and the Netherlands Railroad Company has issued a statement that Baden-Powell ha.s captured a large force of Boers. A Avar  bulletin posted at Pretoria on Muy  13fch announced   that   the  British  Avere  advancing  Mafeking.  to   the relief of  Railway Company's Flans.  The Canadian Pacific railroad  Avill proceed without further delay  to erect new buildings in Nelson  and rearrange its yards at an oufc-  lay_ of $70,000 to $100,000. This  decision is the direct outcome of  general manager McNieholl's visit  to the city and his conference here  Avith general superintendent Marpole and superintendent Troup.  The matter has been under consideration for many months, bnt it  Avas not until yesterday that a final  conclusion Avas reached.  To quote captain J. W. Troup's  words, "Mr. McNicoll's parting instructions are, 'get to work without  an unnecessary hour's delay. There  is now nothing to prevent the  work being carried through as  rabidly as it can be done.' "  The program consists briefly in  the erection of a new passenger depot, a freight shed, a round house  and machine shop and the rearrangement of the tracks. It -will  be. a matter of ten days or two  Aveeks before the details will be  sufficiently complete to enable the  company to break ground, and the  Avork Avill nofc be finished until the  snow flies, although the passenger  and freight depot will be in use before that time. . Superintendent  Marpole states that Nelson's facilities, when his company's program  is completed, will be second. to no  point in British Columbia saAre  Vancouver. ��  A representative of The Tribune  Avent through the plans for the  work with captain Troiip last night.  The neAV passenger depot will be  located at the foot of Baker street  on the ground now used by the  Chinese colony as truck gardens. In  order to make the depot easy of  access Baker sbreet will be graded  for some distant below fche point  Avhere Raihvay streeb leads into the  present yards. AnatheiMiiteresting  feature of the Avork is that Cofcton-  AA'ood creek Avill be diverted from >  its present channel so " that it '-.will  run immediately under the, bluff at  the foot o'f Bakor street, where a  wide bridge will be constructed.  Diverting the course of the stream  gives tho company a large area Lof  clear ground to u^e as described  hereafter. The tramway company  Avill also extend its line to the rear  of the depot, so that passengers  may alight from trains afc one side  and step into fche street cars at the  rear. When Baker street is continued into the new'yards the pas-  seuger depot avi!1 be located ou the  north or lake side of the road and  the freight depot on tho opposite or  south side. Between the two'  buildings -will be a large open space  into Avhicli carriages, 'busses and  freight teams* can drive Avithout  confusion or delay.  Kelson's new passenger depot will  be generous in its dimensions, and  afctractivein design., The_plans_  "call for a building 100 by 31 feet,  two stories iu height, the general  appearance of fche front ele\ration  being a large gable rising in the  centre, flanked by long Avings, The  foundation, and possibly a portion  of the first story, AvilLbc of stone,  tho balance of wood, handsomely  finished. The first flat includes a  general Availing room ��0 feet square,  a ladies' Availing room 15 feet  square, a .smoking room M by 25,  an office for tiie agent, ticket, baggage and express office*, lavatories,  etc. Tho mjcoih! fiat avi'IF bo devoted to offices for tiie superintendent and staff, trainmaster, 'dispatchers, port captain, port steward  and engineering staff. The-building Avill be lit by eloctiic light aud  heated by steam. Jn* this connection it i.s worthy of mention that  the plans drawn ;nl the company's  head office for the passenger only  contemplated a building 88 by 31  feet, and that Messrs. Marpole and  Troup Avere able to convince Mr.  McNicholl that larger premises  Avere essential, which the general  manager gracefully conceded.  Tiie freight sheds will bo 250 feet  in length and -will be arranged to  handle the constantly growing  business at this point. Mr. Drew,  tho local agent, will be provided  Avith commodious and AA-ell appointed offices.  Tin; roundhouse is to be erected  on the north side of the tracks and  will be equipped Avith a machine  shop for handling repairs. The  building will be furnished with a  modern turntable.  One of the mosfc important features of the programme is fche rearrangement; of tho tracks.^ The  appropriation for this portion is  large and  the work Aviil occupy a  considerable length of time. It is  proposed to take up all the present  tracks and lay them at a higher  grade, besides adding other tracks  to meet the extra requirements.  Passengers and teams requiring to  call afc the depot or freight sheds  will have no tracks to cross.  A portion of the Avork is to be let  by tender, and the balance Avill be  built by tiie company.  ��New Jewelry House.  T. H. Brown, Avho has purchased  the   Canada   Drug   & Book Company's stock of silverware, cut glass  ware and souvenirs, will  open  for  business on Thursday, at 178 Baker  sVreet, opposite the LaAvreuce Hard-.;  ware    Company's    premises.   Mr.  Brown has had an extensive experience in the jewelry business, hav-  been iu the   employ of Ryrie Bros,  of Toronto for several years, in addition  to  other experience in the  leading    eastern     Canadian    and  United States-cities.   The Canada  Book & Drug Company's stock was  purchased merely with a view to  removing a competitor in business  and during the first two  Aveeks Mr.  BroAvn Avill utilize thife stock for  the purpose of becoming acquainted  Avith the people of Nelson.     The  stock was purchased at a discount  and will be offered/at a sacrifice.  These sacrifice prices  will  not apply to the neAV stock of goods which  Mr. Brown has  received from  the  east.   This stock  will be made up  of the very latest designs  from the  leading makers, aiid will not include  anything   but   first    class,   goods.  They were purchased., for cash aud  can be sold in competition with any  any other house in Nelson.      A  MAFEKING'SFATE UNKNOWN  General Advance Continues.  London.

Ho had  been ailing for some months, but no  one expeeted death so soon or so  suddenly.  British commander at Mafeking,  sent to lord Roberts under date of  May 7th. Five days later the Boers  attemptedito storm the town, and  it is possible that they succeeded,  although nothing is known of the  attack or of its results, except  through Pretoria sources, - Avhich  'Have" no countenance here. The  British relief column is due there  now. '  Ten days ago general Synman  was having difficulty iu keeping  the burghers together, owing to  the approach of the British, and,  Avhen the last Associated Press dispatch leffc Mafeking on May 7th,  the Boers had killed on the previous day one of the horse guards  and captured seA'eral -of colonel  Baden-Powell's few remaining  horses.  The Transvaal army has taken a  position at Baluawashdorp, pass  near Heilbron road station, 50  miles north of Kroonstadt. Its  rear guard is still holding the hills  north of the Vaalsch river Avhile  the Boer scouts are in touch Avith  the British reconnoitering parties  20, miles north of Kroonstadt. The  Boers have held a council of AA'ar at  Dingley, and the British spies haA'e "  learned that the Boers haA'e decided to hold Harrismith as long as  possible. Lord Roberts' infantry  are still at Kroonstadb. The railway laborers are at work aud the  engineers hope to have the line repaired AA'ithin three days.

He remains a  consistent champion of the laAV, and  the   men  who   framed   it.    From  these three candidates the friends  of  the  eight-hour  movement  will  doubtless^be called upon to make a  selection.   The one had no sympathy for the eight-hour law before  lie became a candidate, and is the  nominee   of   its   opponents.     The  second has been luke-warin in his  support  of the measure from the  first, and even as a candidate has  not the courage   to jeopardize   a  single vote by a clean-cut declaration in favor of the eight-hour law  as it stands.   The third candidate  was the first man in the affected  districts  to   champion   the   eight-  hour law, and since the first has remained and uncompromising advocate of the measure as it is.   There  is another matter worthy of consideration.     Which   of the   three  men is the more to be relied upon  to make a fight for the eight-hour  law should it be necessary to make  a fight for its retention ?  , Dr. Haix, in Nelsou, announces  himself opposed to premier Martin ;  but in Ymir that faction which admires premier Joe professes to have  proof that Dr. Hallis a Martin man,  his platform and denials to the contrary notwithstanding. It matters  little whether the doctor is a follower or opponent of Martin, but it  is rather 'uncomplimentary on the  part of his Ymir supporters that  they should spread broadcast the  story thafc thoir candidate-is nofc  what-Jie professes to be.  It has occasioned much comment  that   candidate   Fletcher did  not  niake.it convenient-to voice his approval of the eight-hour law until  he became a candidate for the suffrages of the ��� electors of the Kelson  riding,    Ifc has also occasioned some  comment,  that the candidate of a  Conservative    faction,     which   is  bitterly opposed to the eight-hour  law, should make such au admission.     The   position   of   candidate  Fletcher is the   more remarkable  however by reason of the action  which the local  Conservative machine took to discredit the professions of the candidate.    While the  candidate was drafting his bid for  the support of the sympathizers of  the eight-hour law, the executive of  his campaign committee was taking  steps to disfrauchise the very men  with whom the candidate was endeavoring to curry favor.   The men  who    aro    supporting    candidate  Fletcher   will promise   the   wage-  earners of the riding anything, bufc  they will not allow them fco vote if  they can prevent it.  iif        ^_li_"___^^^__^y__^"__^   '_"'   _^    ~^*%t  xit  xi,  XI  xi  xit  Xi  XI  XI  Xi  Xi  XI  XI  Xi  Xli  XI  36   Baker  Street  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.

One of llie most important amendments to the railway act proposed  in Mr. Blair's bill is the clause giving  the railway committee of the  privy pcoimcil power to determine  l.lie location of stations on railways  subject to Dominion  authority or  subsidized in money or land by the  Dominion   parliament.     This   is a  provision shown by experience to  he necessary in the public interest.  IL deals with a method of railway  operation recently brought to the  attention  of the Dominion by the  case of the town of Moyie, British  Columbia.      The   railway   wanted  certain concessions which the municipality refused to grant, .and as a  punishment the company established   its station   about  three   miles  from the town, thus preventing tho  natural growth of the place, making property valueless aud compelling  of  tho  people  to move   their  houses and effects to the new location.    The matter was brought to  1 lie   attention   of parliament  last  year, and a bill was introduced to  cover all such cases.    Owing to the  ���opposition of the railway interests,  which developed into a form of obstruction by sir Charles Tapper aud  liis  followers in the railway committee of the  house of  Commons,  lhe bill was withdrawn.    Tho mini-tor of railways has again  incorporated its provisions in a proposed  amendment to the railway act, and  I he same forces are arrayed against  it.     Mr.  Ilaggart,   ex-minister   of  railways.- and colouel Tisdale  are  the most active and persistent op-  p'���nents   of   the i measure   in   the  house.    The   experience of   Moyie  shows  that   tiie* existing   system  j nits the towns and cities, especially  in   th'e   prairie   and   mountainous  ���country, absolutely at the mercy of  the  raihvays.     The  moving   of a  station a few miles'necessitates the  moving of the town.    Hotels must  be built near the new station, and  i he old ones mtit-fc be abandoned.  Stores must follow, and ihe people  ���whose industry4ias built up a town  are   compelled   to   build   another.  Tho town that dares to lesist the  demands of a railway can be simply  obliterated.  The outcry already raised a gainst  lhe exercise of this power shows  that it has been abused by the railways, and thafc it is a power with  which   no   groat   corporation   can  safely be trusted.    One of the influences that lead to the improper  use of this power is the real estate  ���-peculation that takes place wherever there is a rapid development  of population.    Railway magnates  7md their" frionds~are"often "deeply"  interested in such speculations, and  tempting opportunities are afforded  by the power of locating a town at  any  point desired.    It is a simple  matter to secure land adjacent to a  nourishing    aud    promising   town  and to Compel all ifs leading inter-  c-ts  to move  in  the direction  of  such holdings by establishing the  I'-ailwny station in a now quarter.  3\Jen  in the confidence of railway  just lingers and knowing in advance  ., " such intentions can secure large,  ilroh^   ,ifc   *'10 e^l501?80   ��f   those  whose  Xijjfie    railway   there  vnplaints regarding  informa-  ;.-Is now prepared to issue Drafts arid  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  c  ever, that when Mr. Puttee, the  labor candidate, put up with success  at the last Dominion election in  Winnipeg, he found a strong opponent in Mr. E. D. Martin, who in  his turn, had no stronger supporter  than his brother Joseph, then and  now of 'Vancouver, formerly of  Winnipeg, Circumstances alter  cases���decidedly. Mr. Martin travelled specially to Winnipeg to oppose Mr. Puttee, but he failed. So  he has, after being cold-shouldered,  by Dunsmuir the "capitalist," decided on mature deliberation, that  he is now and ever will be the  friend of labor���for a consideration  and on an emergency.  Weir's Conviction Illegal.  According to sir Edward Clarke,  formerly solicitor-general of England,  William  Weir,  president of  tho Banque Ville Marie, now undergoing  sentence  of two  years   for-  presenting a false statement to the  government, was wrongly condemned.    Donald MacMaster, Q. C, having applied to the attorney-general  of Quebec for leave to appeal from  the decision of judge Wurtele, sent  a copy of the printed case, now before the attorney-general, to sir Edward  Clarke  for  an  opinion.    Sir  Edward has just replied that he is  clearly   of   the   opinion   that   the  judge  presiding  at   the   trial was  wrong iu his decision with respect  to tho indictment.    As that indictment originally stood, some words  having  apparently   been accidentally omitted, it did not allege auy  offence at all.    It alleged that the  defendants had made a monthly report, but it contained no statement  that the report was false or deceptive, and although it contained the  words,   "a   wilfully false and  deceptive statement," it did not allege  that the defendants made any such  statement.    It, therefore, was clearly   bad,    and   should    have   been  quashed ; or, by leave of the court  and upon proper terms of postponement, amended.   The   amendment  proposed tiy the prosecution would,  in his,opinion, have still leff the indictment bad.  inasmuch, as it' did'  not  specify  the statement   whichs  the defendants wore alleged to have  falsely made,  and "the defendants  wero entitled not only to particulars of such alleged falsehood, but  to  its  specification  iu  the  indictment," in   order   that' the  record  should show, of what offence the  defendants were acquitted or convicted.   But this amendment,  insufficient  as* it  would  have  been,  was refused by the court.   These  and other   questions, sir   Edward  says, are so serious that he cannot  understand the refusal to state a  reserved ease.

Steps should immediately be taken through  the proper channel to prevent the immigrat on  into this country of Chinese and Japanese  laborei s.  3. Two dollars and fifty cents per day should be  the .minimum wage of unskilled labor throughout tho province on nil government works.  4. "A lair wage" bill should be introduced lc-  quiring the payment of standard wages on ,ill  works to which the pro's incc contributes subsidies  or aid in any form.  5. The establishment of a labor bureau under  the direction of a minister of tho crow n whose  duty it shall be, among other things, to collect  labor statistics, and to act as a mediator between  employers and workmen in .ill cases of all actual  or threatened strikes with powei to call ami examine witnesses, and compel disclosure ot all  material facts in connection with such disputes.  0. I believe that trunk loads should bo built  and maintained by the governmont, and encour-  ageiient given to mineis to extend tho��o roads.  Such works should be directed by couipotcnt  govcrnmentengineers. AVhcietruils.ue required  to single or small gioups of claims, the cost ot  such trails, if built by the claim owners on the  approval and under the direction of a go\ eminent inspector or engineer, shall apply as assessment upon the claims.  1. Government ownership of all' telegraph  sjstomn and railways, wheie practicable, by construction or purchase.  8. The establishment of technical schools for  metalliferous inincis, in connection with smelters, at different points in the province,  !). To dr.iw the attention of capitalists anil investors to British Columbia as a desir.iblo centre  for profitable mining operations, by suitable advertisement and by the appointment of special  agents at London and clsew here, whose sci vices  shall be free and equally available for all o\\ nors  of British Columbia property.  10. To encourage the establishment .it difl'ercnt  points in British Columbia of (a) steel and iron  works, (b) ship building jaids, (c) additional  smelters and refineries.  11. The retaining ot the resources of the province as an asset tor the benelit of the people and  taking effective measures to pre\ent the alienation of the public domain excepting to actual  settlers or tor bona fide business or industrial  purposes, thus putting nn encj to the practice of  speculating in the same.  12. The taking of active moasiiros for tho ays.  tcmatic exploration of tho province, including a  government survey of tho province bj sections  and the preparation of accu<atc and cheap maps  in accordance with such survey.  13. Tho interests, of the province can bo best  served by permanent civil service, appointments  to which should be made by reason of merit and  not of political influence.  11. All unoccupied lands in the province should  be open to bona fide settlers at fair prices, which  shall be decided upon by government land agent  or valuator and better facilities should be given  for acquiring small ureas for the establishment  of market gardens and homesteads.  13. Where mincial claims aro held by joint  owners and where ono or more of such ov\ ncrs  refuse to contribute towards the annual assessment work provision should be made in the  Mincial Act for the sale of the interest ot such  delinquent owners.  Ki. The abolition of the depesit by candidates  for the legislature.  17. Redistribution of the constituencies on an  equitable basis.

ESTABLISHED 1892  Garden, Mill,  Steam  Hose.  and Suction  Kimberley Mail  The board of trade  next meeting take up  of   improved   postal  Trouble.  will at their  the question  facilities  for  Nelson, and one of the features to  be discussed is regarding the service  to  Kimberley.      Until  the   North  Star   branch of   the C. P. R.   was  built to  Kimberley the  mail  was  driven over by a .stage driver from  Cranbrook, who received  the princely remuneration  of six  bits  per  trip, but made a living out of passengers.    When the railroad was  opened passengers no longer used  the stage and the driver stopped  carrying the   mail.     Residents of  Kimberley then had the mail sacks  brought in  by the C. P. R.  trainmen, subscribing toward the cost of  this.    The railroad had no contract  or agreement with the postoffice department   to carry  the  mail  and  when a registered letter bag went  astray for a couple of weeks the  railroad management threatened its  trainmen   with discharge if   they  carried another lot of mail aboard  the train.    To cap  the  climax the  postmaster at Cranbrook refused to  hand out any letters at his office  addressed to Kimberley, and a pretty  kettle of fish is the result.     Residents of Kimberley are fighting for  some   arrangement  whereby they  cau get mail, and'in the meantime  are having their letters addressed  to Cranbrook and* sending twenty  miles  for   them   while  their own  postoffice is desej-ted.  Bigelow Got Judgment.  The case of Bigelow vs. LaBau  was finished yesterday, a verdict  being given in favor of'the plaintiff.

BYERS & CO.  NELSON  KASLO  SANDON,  REV. J. ROBSON WILL LEAVE  His Successor Appointed.  Nelhon is to lose one of her popular pastors iu  the person of Rev.  John Robson, B. A., of the  Methodist   church.   The   annual conference now in session has concluded  to place Mr. Robson in charge of  the  Princess  street    church,  Vancouver,   and   to move   Rev. J. H.  White   of   Chilliwack   to   Nelson.  While the change will be distinctly  to Mr. Robson's   personal   advantage, a   large   proportion   of   the  Methodist congregation in Nelson  will learn of the conference's action  with extreme regret.    The departing pastor has  resided   here two  years and was cordially invited  to  remain in the city for a third year,  which invitation he accepted.    The  exigencies of the itinerancy necessitated  a  series   of   changes in  the  Kootenay district and  Mr. Robson  interposed no objection when  the  conference proposed to move him  to the coast.  During his pastorate in Nelson  the Methodist church has made  great strides. The membership of  the church has more than doubled,  a parsonage excelled by none in the  province has been erected, and the  debt on church property reduced to  a comparatively insignificant sum.  The auxiliary branches of church  work are also in a most flourishing  condition.  Rev. J. H. White, who comes to  Nelson from Chilliwack, ia < au  earnest and eloquent preacher.  Under his pastorate the Nelsou  church-will undoubtedly continue  to prosxier.  Rev. Mr. Robson returns from  New Westminster toward the end  of the week an'd will immediately  proceed to make his preparations  for removing to his new charge.
