PRICE FIVE  GENTS  GENERAL BULLER'S ADVANCE  Boers Driven Back.  Lois'don, May 15.���I a. in.���General Buller's turning of the Big-  gursberg position was effected by a  bold movement. The Boers have  evacuated Hclpmaakar, but were  making a stand on Monday at Blcs-  koplagt, seven miles from Dundee.  The correspondents on tlio .spot regard it as a rear guard action intended to cover the retreat of the  ju my, At .the same time geueral  . - Hildynrd took Indaba, and it is reported tliat the Boers withdrew in  disorder. General Buller, who  Mceins to be be employing his full  l_ i strength, is expected to push on.  His Iirst marches were 45 miles in  three days. lie is thus breaking  into British territory wliich has  boon administered for six months  by the Transvaalers as though it  wore part of their republic, they  holding courts and levying taxes.  His success, therefore, lias political  a* well as military consequences.  While lord Roberts' infantry are  concentrating at Kroonstadt where  lliey will rest for a day, his horsemen have penetrated IS miles northward. In the squadron which cut  tho railway 15 miles beyond Kroonstadt was the American scout, Fred  Jlurnham. Two hundred Boers,  -u ho had hidden in the river jungles  near Kroonstadt to escape service,  have surrendered to the Biitish and  have taken the oath of allegiance.  According to a dispatch from  Rcnnetsburg tothe Daily Telegraph,  dated May 10th, Paul and William  McDonald, members of the Free  State volksraad, demanded that the  chairman should call a meeting to  sue for peace as further resistance  was suicidal, and proposed to make  president Steyn a prisoner.  ���Nothing definite has been heard  about the expected relief of Mafeking. The Cape Town correspondents continue to wire that relief is  imminent, fixing Tuesday or Wednesday as the final date. Inquirers  at the war ollice are told that the  iimvh of the Relief will be made  public immediately on its receipt.  Mr. Hallowell, formerly correspondent at Mafeking, who was put  "over the Transvaal border, fcelc-  uraphing from Lorenzo Marquez on  Sunday, says; "Judging from talk  J have had with the Boers, the end  df the war will come in a 'month or  six weeks. Mr. Steynkamp, chairman of the second raad, who travelled , with me, said that if  {he burghers were pressed from  1'ietoria they would retire to the  '.district'of the Leydeiiburg mountains; which had already been provisioned. He remarked he hoped  the burghers would staud firm, but  he feared they ,were'too broken in  .-pirit. I gathered from him that  tiie whole available force of tho  1 Transvaal was now iu the field, the  final commandcriug having taken  place last Thursday, and that ic is  only the powerful ^magnetism of  "president "Kriiger "tlrat keeps the  burghers together."  At the British hospitals in Bloemfontein the deaths from fever average from S to 10 daily.  A Chinese Revolution.  St. Taut,, May M.���A Helena,  Montana, special to the Pioneer  pi ess, says; President Tim, of the  "Pop Wong Wei," yosterday sent  the following cablegram to the empress dowager at I'ekin through  the British embassy at Shanghai :  "Unless the heir apparent, Fut-  t'liun, i�� superseded, unworthy  advisers removed, and emperor Kwougsn is restored to  power, we will combine the  interior Chinese and raise an army."  'I ho cablegram was signed by the  association. Today president Tim  received the following reply from  tho embassy at Shanghai: "Yours  of yesterday to the empress Dowager at Pekin, will be stopped here  for further transmission. It is considered dangerous to the security  of the country." President Tim  averts that an army will be  smirched against the empress this  (summer, and that it is already  partly organized.  Stead Helps the Boers.  London, May 14.���W. T. Stead,  who was the last man in Europe to  bid farewell to the Boer delegation,  obtained from Mr. Abraham Fischer (a member of the l^ree State executive council, and one of the delegates) a message to the American  people, which is practically in the  ��ame words as the message prevl-  <.Eisly sent through the Associated  .Press.    Mr. Fischer  jidded:   "The j  governments of the old world* appear paralyzed. We hope to find a  different state of things in the new  world. We know that at the very  time the'Jameson raid threatened  the independence of the Transvaal  the American republic succeeded in  inducing Great Britain to submit  to arbitration a question which involved, not her interests, but the  frontier interests of the republic of  Venezuela. < As you obtained arbitration for Venezuela after England had declared it was impossible,  so wo venture to hope that the free  and enlightened public opinion of  the American republic will succeed  in inducing the power attacking  our very existence to stay her hand  and submit the question of the  future government of these regions  to the free judgment of an impartial tribuual."  WILL SOON OCCUPY DUNDEE  BIGCARSBERG NOW TAKEN  British Push On.  London, May 14.���A special dispatch from Stone Hill Farm, Natal,  dated today, says:  "Geueral Buller's advance commenced Thursday, when he left  Ladysmith in strength. When  within two miles of Helpmaakar,  the Boers opened a heavy artillery  firo and the British replied, while a  portion of Buller's troops worked  around the Boer flanks. The British attack was pressed home Sunday  by Bethuen, who on the right outflanked the Boers, whose splendid  defensive positions on the Biggars-'  berg were practically taken. General Buller's march, subsequent to  the attack, was carried on without a hitch. The British are still  pushing on."  Monroe Doctrine and Germany.  Washington," May 14.���In view  of the significant references to the  enforcement of the Monroe doctrine  by secretary Root, senator Lodge  and other prominent men, the state  department has taken steps to se-  cutft data on th*1 siihjpefc The burden ot these speec'ues>nas ueen iTutT  startling increase of the German  colonies in South and Central America, which have been regarded as  menacing the Monroe doctrine. It  also lias been asserted that these  German colonies maintain their  home customs in the new land, deal  almost entirely with Germany, use  onjy the German language, have al-  mostautouomous governments within the limits of the American republics, and the colonies are, in fact,  little Germanics wherever located.  The state department has addressed  an instruction to every American  minister and consul in South and  Central America to fully inform  tho department on all points to  which reference ,has beeu made. Of  course Germany is not referred to  by name, for such a direction might  naturally give umbrage to the German government. The circular applies to colonists of all nationalities, though it is expeeted that the  consulsrin compiling their "reports,  will differentiate colonists.  India Famine Sympathizers.  Sew York, May 14.���The executive committee of the committee of"  one hundred on the India famine  relief met at the chamber of commerce this afternoon. It is proposed to communicate with all  cities of the United States, the secular and religious press of tlio  United States and Canada, and  churches and religious organizations everywhere with a view to  attracting public attention and  awakening public sympathy.  Bom hay, May 14.���Louis Kloopsh  of New York, publisher of the  Christian Herald, has arrived here  and is starting on a tour of the  famine stricken districts. He  handed to the international missionary committee three lacs , of  rupees ($145,000) for distribution  among the famine sufferers.  A Temperate Army. ���  London. April 14.���At the annual meeting of the Army Temperance Association, major-general sir  George AVhite, the defender of  Ladysmith, presiding, a letter from  lord Roberts, dated Bloemfontein  April 19tb, was read during which  the.writer says: "There never was  a more temperate army than that  which inarched under my command  from the Modder river to Bloemfontein. Nothing but good can result from so many soldiers being  brought together in an arduous  campaign, when I see how splendidly our men have borne up against  the hardships and dangers they  .have had to face/'  form a  lord  rail-  Lipton and Newspapermen.  New York, May 14.���The following message was received today by  Mr. Barritt, representing sir Thomas  Lipton in New York. It has reference to tfio exhibition of the Press  Artists' League which opens today  at the Waldorf in thiseity. "London,  May 14.���Have just received a letter  from the Press Artists' League.

Philadelphia, May 14.-���Diligent  search is being made today for the  remaining bodies under the wreckage in the Baltimore &, Ohio railroad tunnel at Twenty-fifth street,  where two sections of a freight  train collided at midnight on Saturday. The report of the surrender  of Frank Lantell, the operator who  General War News.  London, May 14.���A dispatch received by the Associated Press  from Pietermaritzburg, Natal,  timed 12:05 p. m. today, brings the  first intimation of success attained  by general Buller in northern  Natal. The sender of this dispatch  evidently assumes that news of the  affair has been received from the  scene of hostilities. He merely  says:  "General Buller's official telegram  notifying his success at Biggars-  berg, received here an hour ago,  has given satisfaction. It is confidently anticipated that Dundee  will be occupied by the British  today. The residents of the northern country are delighted, as  forcing the Biggarsburg means that  they will speedily be enabled to return to their homes.  At about the time this message  was received, another dispatch came  to the Associated Press, dated  Stone Hill farm, 8:20 o'clock this  morning.    It says:  "After four days', march eastward  at the foot of the Biggarsburg  ridges, itfthe direction of Helpmaakar. Avhich was occupied ' by the  federals, the second brigade on  Sunday led the attack. Dundonald's brigade broke the Boer centre and Bethuen's Horse advanced  on their extreme right. In the direction of Pomeroy. a small party  of burghers occupied a ridge overlooking Helpmaakar, but they did  not wait for the assault."  Recent British scouting in the direction of Dundee has shown that  the federals were in great force in  the Biggarsburg. So, apparently,  geueral Buller concluded that it  was necessary to clear them from  the rear before commencing a movement in the direction of Drakens-  berg range. If that is his plan, he  lias possibly divided - his ' force,  sending one column eastward to  threaten Vryheid and Utreeht and  ;a,_,i���   x~~s^_,-.~   3>-<��-,    ._l.;l_  bound column attempts to  juncture   with the forces of  Roberts via  the Harrismith  road.  Telegrams from Kroonstadt'indicate that general French's cavalry  is keeping in touch with the Boers.  But, perhaps, lord Roberts will be  compelled to order'a brief halt of  his main body in order to allow the  troops to recuperate after their exhausting! marches of the past week.  All the correspondents agree that,  to all intents and purposes/the Free  Staters have severed their military  alliance with the Transvaal, though  scattered bodies, they say, may possibly Jiold out hero and there for  some time. At the same time a dispatch from Cape Town, dated today, says a proclamation will be  published this week annexing the  Orange Freo State.  It is also said that general Botha,  the eommandei'-in-chief of the Boer  forcesrthreatens 'to~resign7 if "any  preparations are made for the wanton destruction of property.  Cecil Rhodes starts for Beira,  Portuguese East Africa, today. .  was asleep at his post and caused  the wreck, has proved erroneous.  It is learned, however, that on Saturday he called at the office of the  company aud received his pay. The  last heard of him was that he had  gone to New York. The Baltimore  & Ohio company has offered a reward of $1000 for his arrest.  STERN KITCHENeTiVIELTED  Incident of the War.  New York, May 14.���A batch of  correspondence from the Loudon  office of the Associated Pi ess contains the following:  "While lord Kitchener was engaged in suppressing tiie Prieska  rebellion he ordered the destruction  of a certain farmhouse. Not seeing  any signs of his orders being carried out, he rode over with his staff  and found an interesting situation.  "In the doorway of the doomed  house stood a pretty young Dutch  girl, her hands clasped to the door  posts and her eyes flashing fire  from beneath her snnbouuet. The  Irish sergeaut in charge of the  party of destruction.was vainly endeavoring v to persuade her to let  him pass.in, but to all of his blan-  ishmeuts of:  " 'Arrah, darlint, wisha now, ac-  cusha,' etc., the maiden turned a  deaf ear, and a deadlock prevailed.  "Lord Kitchener's sharp 'what's  this' put an end to the scene. The  girl evidently guessed that this was  the dreaded;chief of staff, and"her  lips trembled in spite of herself.  Kitchener gazed ^sternly at her,  standing bravely though tearfully  there, and turned^ to his military  secretary and said :  " 'Put down that the commander's orders with reference to the  destruction of Rightman's farm  could not be carried out owing to  unexpected opposition. Forward,  men.'  "This is vouched for by C. A. Mc-  Nuellen, an engineer recently recently leturned from Jepanesburg."  inree marunTUaSoiaaTces.    \  Kaslo, May 14.���[Special to The  Tribune].���There are throe Martin  men anxious for nomination at the  government convention here tomorrow. They are George Kane of  Kaslo, W. J. Foley and Andrews of  Slocan City. It is hoped that  Smith Curtis will be here tomorrow  night. Bob Green does not think  the Martin candidate will take  many votes from him, though a  three-cornered contest is expected.  Mint for Canada.  ' Ottawa, May 14���[SpeeiaMo The  Tribune].���Fielding stated in the  house today that tho Dominion  government has under consideration the question of establishing 'a  mint in Canada, but that the same  terms that were granted to Australia would not suit on' account of  Australia having the sovereign the  same as iu England, while Canada  "would roquire~$l and~5|>5~coins.  - Proceedings in the House.  Ottawa, May 14.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���In the house today  Borden introduced a bill'to amend  the Militia Act by giving power to  the government to appoint colonels  in future. At present the highest  officer that can be appointed by  Canada is a lieutenant-colonel. The  bill was read a first time. The balance of the day was spent on the  criminal code.  Two More Nominations.  Vancouver, May 14.-���[Special  to The Tribune.]���G. Tatlow was  chosen by the party-line Conservatives tonight to take tlio place of  C. E, Tisdall, resigned, ou their  ticket. John Oliver has received  the government nomination for  Delta to run against F. W. Barrie,  Conservative, and ex-speaker Forster of the Provincial Party.  ��   Usury Bill.  Ottawa, May IL��� [Special to  The Tribune.]���Dandurand's usury  bill was reported in the senate today. It was changed so as to make  the maximum rate of loans of less  than $500 12 per cent, instead of *i0  per cent as stated in the bill. The  rate on judgment debts was reduced  from 10 to six per cent.  Liberals Endorse Turner.  Victoria, May 14.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���At a meeting of  Liberals opposed to Martin tonight,  the opposition candidates, Turner,  Helmcken, McPhillips und Hall were  endorsed. They pledged themselves  not to run on party linos.  WERE SLAIN BY TREACHERY  Abuse of the White Flag.  London, May 14.-3:12 p.m.���The  war office has received the following dispatch from lord Roberts:  "Kroonstadt,   May    13.���There  were more casualties iu the cavalry  division on May 10th than reported  by me.    I have been unable to  get  au exact account of what occurred,  as the commanding  officer, captain  Els worthy, .was killed, and two officers   were   wounded at  the   same  time and have been sent to the rear.  But it would appear that a party of  our men, going to a kraal on which  a white flag was flying,  was suddenly attacked by a large number  of  the  enemy.    Two  officers, captain Haigh, of the Sixth Dragoons,  and   lieutenant Wilkinson, of the  Australian horse, were made prisoners and twenty-one men are still  unaccounted for.     Some of  them  may have turned up, as the cavalry  covered   a    considerable    distance  May 10th, and men  reported missing have beeu rejoining during  the  last few days."  The above dispatch refers to  losses sustained by the Inniskillings  on May 10th, as detailed in the dispatches of the Associated Press.  The troopers were fired on while  unsaddling their horses, having approached the kraal unsuspiciously,  Avhile a white flag was flying from it.  The First to Pay Their Losses.  The Hartford Fire Insurance  Company was the first company  that willingly paid the City of  Nelson the tax imposed on fire insurance companies, and that, too,  at a time when i t had not placed  any business in the city. Since  then its agents here," Ward Brothers, have placed considerable insurance for the company, and the  chances are they will place a good  deal more in the future, for the old  reliable Hartford  is  as prompt in  payinen��~of"fl;s taxes'." ^ esE6rclay  Ward Bi oth ers received a draft  from the general agent of the company in San Francisco to cover the  company's losses by tin' fire in the  Burns block, which occurred on the  24th of, last month. Three weeks'  time is not long to wait for money  lost through the destruction of property by fire.  Bigelow vs LaBau.  After chambers were over the  rest of the day at the court house  yesterday was occupied in the hearing of the case of Bigelow vs La  Ban, an action arising out of the  administration of the Carrie Willis"  estate. lt'developed that the plaintiff had sold the deceased his half  interest in the Victoria block, ou  which, at the time of her death,  $1000 was still owing, secured only  by a promisory note. Dr. La Ban  _wa&_executor_of the estate, and_the_  plaintiff seeks to render him personally liable for the amount, on  the grounds that he received certain moneys belonging to the estate and paidtheother creditors, but  not the plaintiff, who claims that  he should at any rate have beeu  paid pro rata. He also charges tho  doctor with inal-administration of  the estate. The case was not concluded, and tho arguments* of counsel will be heard today..  Decision Beserved.  Argument on the application for  a writ of prohibition 'forbidding  collector of votes Wright to place  IS!) voters' names ou the. voters'  list was resumed yesterday morning before Mr. justice Drake in  chambers. Though in no way instructed to appear in the case, W.  A. Macdonald, Q. C, and J. H.  Bowes actively assisted R, M. Macdonald in the presentation of his  case. S. S. Taylor, Q. C, appeared  for the disfranchised voters. His  lordship reserved his decision, but  promised to give it in time for an  appeal to the full court on Slay  28th. Thus the matter is unlikely  to be finally settled until the last  moment.  Sad Side of War.  Kaslo, May 11���[Special to  The  Tribune].���In a letter just received  from Bloemfontein. private George  Wilkins of this city tells of the sad  side of war. He gives a graphic  account of the morning after the  battle, .saying: "Men from each  regiment wore s'eon on the gory  field collecting the dead. Many  men were actually weeping over  their harrowing task.    The sight of  so   many   gallant soldiers  of   the  queen lying cold and still affected  the stoutest heart.   Our men lay as  they fell, facing  the   enemy,  but  there were   smiles: on their faces  which told   much.       They   being  dead yet spoke to us as  the survivors.   I  hope we may  have to  take   the   field again before long  for   there is a   fascination   about  fighting.    I   am a  thousand times  more proud of being a   Canadian  than  ever.    We actually put the  gallant Gordon Highlanders in the  shade both at fighting and marching.   They used to say, these long-  legged devils walk too fast. We are  not looking forward with special  relish to more forced inarches on  quarter   rations.      Men   dropping'  dead and going mad were * features  of   the last one.     But we would  welcome   another   advance.     We  want another bar to our medals."  MANSFIELD IS SUCCESSFUL  Heilbron Now the Capital.  Kroonstadt, May 14.���President  Steyn has gone to Heilbron, not  Lindley. He has declared the  former the new capital. Four hundred burghers have given up their  arms here and in this neighborhood.  Although the bridge across the  Valsch has been destroyed, a good  deviation exists where the road ran  before the bridge was constructed.  The Transvaalers are reported to be  massing at the Vaal. The Standard  and Diggers News, - of Johannesburg, shows that dissensions  exist in the Transvaal volksraad.  Railway repairs are progressing  rapidly. The town accopts the occupation quietly.  Boer Stores Captured.  Thaba Nchu, May 13.���The  eighth division, with its front extending 30 miles, was yesterday  moving forward. Generals Gren-  fell and Brabant followed the Boers,  reaching Newberry mills aud capturing great quantities of flour and  grain. General Brabant's - main  force, with Campbell's brigade of  guards aud general Boies' brigade,  have cleared the country. The  Boers are splitting, up and  retiring  ill thO_d 3 H'^Wi-*-*3*1"���-Lp^flrMnl..*-.   .    _       _fc^  Uholera as Well as Famine.  London, May 14.���The viceroy of  India,' lord. Curzon of Kedleston,  has telegraphed to the secretary of  state for India, lord Geotge Hamilton; saying: "The decline in the  number of persons demanding relief in Bombay and else wheie is  probably due to the outbreak ,of  cholera, which has broken up many  of the relief camps, and has enormously increased our famine oflicers' difficulties. Otherwise the  situation is unaltered."  Relief of Mafeking Near.  London, May li,���*News from  Mafeking is expected speedily. The  war office is reported to have csx-  pressed the opinion that news of  raising the siege of that place may  be expected by Wednesday. The  parliamentary secretary of the war  office, George Wyndham, in the  house of- commous-today,-deelined  to divulge lord Roberts' plan for  the relief of Mafeking, but added  significantly that he hoped it would  ���shortly be accomplished.'  Austro-Hungariaa Consuls.  Bcda Pest, May 14.���During his  customaryspeeoh to the delegations,  the Austi-o-Hungarian minister of  foreign affairs, count G'oluchowski,  said the foreign office ustiinattfs included the special mission which  would visit tho American coast on  boat d the Austro-IIungurinn ' warship Donau, with a view to determining the best port for the establishment of Austio-lluugarian politico-commercial agencies.  Passed Tirst Beading.  London,. May 14.- The .Australian delegates and numerous colonial agents and peers who have formerly been governors of various  colonies, were present in the house  of commons during the debate on  the Australian Federation bill.  After sir Charles Dilke and others  had spoken the bill was put  through its first reading. ' The  second reading was fixed for May  21st. ___  No Authentic News of Mafeking.  , London, May 13.���There i.s no  authentic information respecting  the appearance of a British column  of 3000 mounted troops near Vryburg, on the way to Mafeking. There  are many conflicting reports from  Boer and British sources, and there  is a strong probability that Mafeking will be relieved about the time  of the queen's birthday, as the officials have been predicting for several weeks.  Despite Backcappers.  News has been received from  Ernest Mansfield, which shows that  he is meeting with the most gratifying success in his efforts to introduce capital into this country. He  has not achieved this without having serious difficulties to surmount,  difficulties placed in his way by a  man who should not have allowed,.  private spite to induce him to do  his best to give Kootenay a black  eye���J. J. Fleutot, manager of the  Excelsior Gold Mines, operating the  Joker mine.  This man, actuated solely by private pique,  has  done his  best  to  decry   the   country   at all   times,  assuring   old   country    capitalists  that the properties in this country -  were wildcats and its inhabitants ,  swindlers, he,  himself, apparently,  being the only honest man in the  country.   That Fleutot did not succeed is a great tribute to  the confi-'.  dence   deservedly   reposed  in Mr. ~  Mansfield  by  his  principals,  who,   J  probably, also were shrewd enough  to divine^the real motives of a man  who went out of his way to wreck  enterprises   with   wliich    he    had ->  nothing to do, and  which  did not  conflict directly 'or indirectly with:,,"  his own interests. ���   >  It  was  thanks to  Mr. Mansfield "  that Fleutot ever got his  present    *  job, namely, manager of the com-  _���  pany operating the Joker mine, for- ,  that property, which is now conceded  to be one of the richest in  Kootenay, was bonded on Mr. Mansfield's   report.        Notwithstanding   -  this,  if   he   could, he would  have ,  prevented   $2000   a   month   being    '  paid in .wages for the development.,  of adjoining'claims; he would havo'  prevented W. E. Boie from getting   _.  $20,000, the balance of, the   purchase price on his claims,  and also  the   prospectors   who   owned- the    '_  Black Hawk and Daisy group near   ,  Ymir from getting $7500, though  IjeJxacLueWKjseen_the .properties in  All this back-dipping was of no -  avail, however, and the payments  enumerated above were duly made.  Mr. Fleutot has* made money out of  Kootenay, and iu return he has  done his best to give the country a -  black eye'and rob the prospectors  of their hard-earned reward, even  though facts had to be falsified and  the truth suppressed.  Mr. Mansfield expects to have the  West Kootenay Brick &Limo Company organized into a company of  ��150,000, of which ��75,000 will be  set aside for working capital. So it  will be seen that this industry is to  be rapidly pushed into the first rank  to the great benefit of Nelson aud  Kaslo,  Kootenay wants more Mansfields  but no Fieutots at all. It wants  mining men who will lend their  best efforts to placing the illimitable resources of the Kootenay be- -  fore the money centres of the world. ���  It does not want men who will deliberately try to give the country a  black eye in order to gratify petty  personal spite.  Canadian Sentries Not Asleep.  Dr. LaBau has received an interesting letter from captain Hodgins.  Much of it covers matter that has  been already thoroughly gone into,  but lie gives a clear account of the  two Canadian sentries who were  supposed to have fallen asleep on  duty at Belmont. It appears that  a picket of the .Monster Mounted  Infantry came into camp one night  aud reported' that they had not <  been challenged, though one of their  number who had lagged behind,  was duly challenged. The sentrios,  who wore posted a little off the road,  swore that they had challenged  them but that the Munsters did not  reply, and as they knew who the  men were they let them go by without firing a shot, as should have  been done according to the regulations. The men were let off with a  slight reprimand, so evidently there  was nothing very serious about it  as was thought at the time from  the cabled accounts.  Dismissed.  Gordon  Cameron,  who  was  appointed health   inspector   at Ry-  kert's during  the  recent  smallpox  scare, and who lias  made  himself  cordially disliked by every man in  that neighborhood, has  been  notified thafc he is no longer a health inspector.    If he was given  twenty-  four hours to got out of  the  country,   every   man   around Rykert's  would bless the man that would enforce the order.  ($��������'<  y5i*aS"��  ,w '-To*-*.

What  does the doctor mean by such a declaration ?   Does he mean that he  would   make   eight hours a legal  day's work and prevent by a penal  clause any one from working more  than eight hours a day ?     Or does  he mean that he would make eight  hours a legal day's work, the same  as six per  cent is  made  the  legal  rate of  interest where the rate is  not specified ?   We are afraid the  doctor  does   not   know   what  he  means, anymore than he does where  he stands in regard to Joseph Martin.   He has stated officially that  he would not support Mr. Martiu as  leader in or out of the house, yet he  is posturing as the Martin candidate  in the hopes that  by doing so he  will.get support from laboring men  who believe that Joseph's platform  will cure all the evils that they are  supposed to suffer from.     Candidates should be consistent, in Nelson  riding at least, because two-thirds  of the electors in the riding think  for themselves and cannot be led  into supporting men who favor one  policy in Nelson, another iu Ymir,  and still another over in the Goat  River country.  0p_0^'i^.00.(^. .^.^.fit0.00.0_0.^.        ���^���^���lS',Sl'S>,1S^,SK',-iiS,jg''<S'^'T&,^,3&:J^'  ^^���^^���^^���^^^���^^���^���^���^���^���^���^���^���^?'���f'^�� .^'^0'00.00'00'00'00-00'00'00'00'^0'fi_0'0M*.fi_0-  xti  ii)  xti  iti  iti  36   Baker   Street  Xti  Xti  Xti  Xti  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.

On the 17th day of April, Arthur  Fowler of Baker street, Nelson, a  miner by occupation, aud 134 others  made application to be placed on  the voters' list for the Nelson Riding of West Kootenay Electoral  District, and their names were duly  exposed for public examination for  two weeks before being placed on  the list by the collector of votes.  On the 18th day of April, Richard  Armstrong of the Clarke hotel, Nelsou, by occupation a miner, and 100  others made similar applications.  On the 19th day of April, Lawrence  Doolan of the village of Kuskonook,  by occupation a roadmaster, and 85  others made applications in due  &A      form so that  they could have the  British subjects.   On the 20th of  April, Joseph JDeersin of the town  of Ymir, a miner by occupation,  and,47 others made,the declaration  that the law requires to bo made  before their names could be placed  on the voters' list.    On April 21st  John Brule of, the town of  ymir,  and who is a miner by occupation,  together   with    199    others,   conformed to the law in order to be entitled to vote.    In all, 505 applications were filed ou the 17th,  18th,  19th,   20fch   and    2lst   of   April.  Every application was duly signed  and witnessed as the jaw directs.  Between the iirst and the* fifth day  of May, three men, namely, G. It. G.  O'Driscoll, Robert Corlett and C. II.  Palmer, objected lo 489 of the 565  names being placed on the voters'  List. The.question-natumlly-ai'ises,  why were not all the names objected  to ?   Why were 70 names allowed  to go through without objection?  Why should David McBeath, who  who was born in Canada fifty years  ago, who has  resided  in  the province   for jnany years, who  is a  large   owner'of   real   property in  Nelson, be objected to as an  alien,  as a man not 21  years of age, aud  as a, man not a resident ot Lhe riding, if it was not because, he was  known to be a supporter of the'  candidacy   of  John   Houston   for  member of the legislative assembly.  Why was the name  of   Kenneth  Carrol Beaton, who has been a resident of British Columbia for less  than three months, and who has no  property interests in the province,  allowed to be placed on the voters'  list ?   Simply because he was and is  a member of the local Conservative  Association, an organization whose  leading members conspired to deprive better men than  themselves  from exercising a right inherent to  British subjects in Canada.  ^^���^H^ _^t^_\t *^^9^ g^^-W& *^^k\w *^m^ *^^-\w ^^H^ *^^^_P *^^Bp *^^-_w ^^^_\\�� ^^9__\ *^^^b *^GtL^ ^^^b *^9& 49_t^ ^^hfc^ 4t&f ^^9** ^~\\W^* ^^^^** 0ttt^ ^^^^* ^-9^ ^B^^* ^^9f ^^^" ff^_\^^ ^9&** 4^_\^* ^9&* ___\\^*  Alex Stewart  Room 3, Turner & Boeeh Block.

Poor old Charlie Soffcon leffc the  regiment when we wore stationed  at Delhi unci wont down to Bombay  on route for home. He was our  .senior captai.ii and the best soldier  in the regiment. He was also our  host bachelor, for I did not count  for much, being only a doctor, and  /finall and plain and getting on for  'forty.  '"Whatever you'do don't get mar-  lioil," we all adjured as we bade  ,' him farewell. Then came the  i rumor, a week later, that he Avas  ! still at Bombay, then the telegram  ' to me to go down itnd serve him as  ; best man.  ���' I went down by the mail train  | and found awaiting me on tho plat-  ] form Charlie Sefton, who looked so  i very quiet and so astonishingly  j happy that I felt a sort of tugging  ���JI sensation  in the throat.    Extreme  > happiness is always alarming.  I    Miss George to whom I was duly  ! presented, was uot in the first Hush  ] of her youth.    She was a girl of  ' perhaps 27, and good looking.  <    She was traveling in India with  ' friends who, it struck me,.were not  Ion very intimate   footing.     They  I wore all staying at a hotel from  : which the wedding was to be unobtrusively   celebrated.     The couple  had only beeu engaged a week.   It  ' is the only case of love at first sight  ��� sincere, permanent, convincing���  which 1 have encountered.  My simple duties were duly performed. Charlie Sefton and Eleanor  CJcorge were declared to be man  and wife, I saw the ceremony. 1  hoard the declaration. 1 appended  lo Lhe entry in the rogibter my  >uiim8, which looks more at home on  'ti death certificate. 1 was deadly  sober, as folks aie at weddings.  * She is giving up a lot of money  io marry me." said'Sefton after the  ceremony,'when he and 1 happened  Uhhe alone for a lew iriimitcK.  , "And you ar?? giving up a career,"  i icHeetod. mindful of many young  I'mcn married.  But there   are   some   marriages  i which strike one at once as inevitable.   Tho only question i.s why the  people   concerned   have   not   met  > toner.   This union was of ^uch a  description.  The bride and bridegroom went  away from the church  with that  distressingly    happy   look    which  i makes one feel uncomfortable They  , were to sail for home the next day.  J journeyed slowly back to Delhi  by a stopping night train, after seeing the Just of their boat from the  1 outer pier.   As I stepped ou|. of the  jc image hi the early morning and  liioted _the _mist .rising from���the  \huiin.a two quartermasters of the  I'otmiMilar    &    Oriental    steamer  Kiimana tipped up a plank and pro-  I'eipitated the dead body of Charlie  iK^ftoiii iuto the .silvery waters oi"  i ho Arabian sea.   He died one day  ! out from Bombay���of cholera., The  jhing"leffc ft shadow over us which  .���ihteil all that hot weather,  fii  due time wo   forgot Charlie  I Kef Ion.    The surest proof of the existence of a merciful Cod is surely  (lie facility with which we are permitted to foigot.  Years afterward fche whole btouy  [ was suddenly recalled to mo at a  garden party in  a quiet country  village near Beccles, in Suffolk.   I  ' was taken to this entertainment���  eh iefly remarkable for the number'  [of clergymen present-���as fche friend  I of one of the guests. * The house  (wtis along, low building of, I was  informed, the queen Anne period.  I i'he host" was a genial old chatter-  !box of an admiral who concerned  {himself with his own affairs in his  jietiremenfc    and    refrained , from  Writing to the newspapers, which  jpa'sfcime is a special weakness  of  (superannuated   admirals.    He wao  immensely proud of his home and  seized on   me,   the   only stranger  [.present,   to   observe   its   beauties.  l<Yom the lawn 1 followed the direction indicated by his shaky finger,  | but instead of noting the carving of  ! a gable committed the indiscretion  of looking into an open window on  [,the first floor.  Then the tragedy of Charlie  Sefton came back to my mind, for I  ���aw the woman who had married  him pinning on her hat before a  glass.   She did not see me.  I was still wifch iny host when we  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on* Skaguay, IT. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  met Sirs. Sefton face to face.  "Ah," said the old gentleman  with genuine delight, "here is my  niece!"  Going forward,   I  held   out my  hand.  "How do you do, Mrs. Sefton ?"  She looked at mo quickly, without ti glimmer of the eyelids.  "You are mistaken," she said. "I  am Miss George."  And wifch perfect good breeding,  she looked toward her uncle, inviting an introduction. This the old  gentleman accomplished with all  the ceremony of his day, mentioning the lady's name as Miss George.  It was nofc a sister. I was not mistaken. This was the same woman  whom I knew to have been a wife  for the space of forty-eight hours.  There was the evidence of an internal trouble beneath the eyes, which  I remembered and now saw developed as the intervening years would  haA'e developed it.  Wc spoke for a few minutes on  indifferent topics.  "The doctor is a great traveler,"  the old gentleman said. "He knoy/s  India, my dear."  "Yes," I added, "I know India.'?  "Ah," answered the most intrepid  woman I have met, "indeed !"  Then iny host hurried me off to  examine a carved mantelpiece of  which I have no recollection at this  time. I do not think I even saw it.  "How funny," said the admiral  confidentially, when we were alone,  "that you should have mistaken  Eleanor for some one else, especially  a married woman! You know there  is a romance aboufc her."  "Indeed?" ' ���. c...  "Yes ; my brother left her ��90,000  ou condition that she married a certain man or remained single.  Should she marry some one else sho  forfeits the money. She enjoys her  life and her wealth immensely.  She travels a great deal and has a  house in town. 1 think she will remain single. The man has married  some v one else, you know. " Interesting , oh?"  "Very," I answered. ,   ,  1 always try to mind -my own  business. " ,  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO.

ANDREE  MAY YET RETURN.  13 err Ernst Andree, brother of  the missing Arctic ' balloonist,  writes: There is every reason to  hope that my brother, S. A. Andree,  is alive. We of his family hope  and expect to hear of his appearance in North America before the  end of-fche present summer. 1 am  well aware thafc the scientific world  has largely given him up as long  since lost among the Arctic ice: but  wo have full confidence hi the safe  return of his expedition, and our  faith is not unreasonable, as you.  shall see.  In the first place let mo say that  the trip was mado after a most  thorough study of all known observation of Arctic air currents, such  study covering a period of several  years.- These observations-were  supplemented by two years of experimenting wifch a trial balloon.  Everything that ingenuity could  devise or thafc monoy could purchase which would add to the  safety of the explorers was secured.  AU this talk of any accident to the  balloon is all nonsense. The trip,  so far as the balloon is concerned,  was safe as on a railway train.  Practically the sole danger lay in  crossing the ice on foot. There was  much danger in this, but none in the  air current.  If the balloon encountered a  regular current of air at the pole  blowing in any southerly direction  ���and all winds there blow-south���  it would have been quickly carried  to some poinfc ou land where ifc  would almost surely have been  heard from within a few weeks.  On the other hand, if the balloon  had encountered any zig-zag  currents, and was thus forced  to laud, ifc would require  two or three years .for them to  reach a poinfc where they could  communicate with civilization. As  they had provisions for ziine  months, they had abundant supplies to reach the 80th degree of  latitude, no matter where they  landed. At the 80fch degree there  is an abundance of game with  which to support life, and the party  had a plentiful supply of guns and  ammunition with which to kill ifc.  We have positive proof that the  balloon did strike irregular zig-zag  air currents within 80 hours after  departure, and thus, iu accordance  with the original plans, must have  forced the party to land.  This faefc absolutely debarred  any prospect of hearing from them  for a long time.  Now, where did this landing take  place? Although the party were  provided with collapsible boats,  etc., for such a contingency, there  is small probability of the balloon  landing in the water, for two  reasons: The balloon was almost  as manageable as a boat, and they  need not land for a long time unless they chose; second, the entire  region where reasonable contingencies would make it necessary to  land, if not land, is frozen ice.  The System Works Well.  In January,' 1895, New Zealand'  passed a law designed to pi event  strikes and lockouts, which theretofore had been of frequent occurrence in the colony.   The system has  been working five years, and during that time there has not been a  strike of any kind in the island.   In  view of the labor disturbances that  have   been   prevalent  throughout  the United States and Canada this  spring; a synopsis of the New Zealand antistrike law will be of interest.    The law is based on the idea  of  compulsory   arbitration.     Tne  law declares that if men work it  must be without strikes or lockouts.  The court of arbitration is composed of three judges, one nominated  .by and representing the labor unions, one representing the employers' associations and a member of  the supreme court.    When a question arises between employers and  employed, either side may summon  the other to court.    It then becomes  a punishable offence for the workmen to strike or the employer to  close down.     The   employer   who  locks his men out without warning  can [be arrested; so can the' workmen who strike without warning.  The decisions of the court may be  made binding or not in its own discretion, but, if made binding, their  violation may be punished by fine  and imprisonment.   Trades, unions  are given a legal status.   They have  state charters, may own property,  may sue arid can be^ sued.   Only  disputes in  trades represented by  registered unions can be considered  by the court, bufc any seven men-  working for a single employer may  constitute themselves a union and  take   their  grievance   before   the  court.   'Before arbitration   can be  secured every effort- at conciliation  must be exhausted.    To facilitate  this the law divides the country  into various industrial districts and  provides for a board of conciliation  for each district.   The boards are  composed of from' four to six members, elected every, three years by  the associations of employers and  employes.   Their decisions have no  binding force.   They merely hear  the   grievances   aud   advise   upon  Having Purchased  the Business  Of Fred J.

Private or local conciliation and arbitration are also encouraged.  A Rejuvenated Palestine.  People who expect Zionism to be  the means of ridding Europe of the  Jewish pauper element, or of converting Palestine into a dumping  ground for the Ghetto, will find  themselves sorely mistaken. We  simply have in mind that Palestine  shall no longer be a vast asylum or  :a huge hospital for the broken-  down and decrepit, but hop�� that it  imay become a place where the  'twain and themuscle shall have free  scope to develop.  A new life shall spring up in the  'old soil of Palestine. The small  leaven of Hellenism which was  thrown 2000 years ago into the  Semitic world has produced the  greatest change in the religious conceptions of mankind. What would  be the result if the accumulated  knowledge of the West should be  brought back to Palestine, there to  Avork again as'a leaven, but upon a  new life, starting with different  ideals? Lying at the very point  where three continents meet, no  one can conjecture what a rejuvenated Palestine could do toward the  revival of the East, its commerce  and its civilization.  The ball has been set rolling;  nothing will ever stop ifc. It may.  be checked for a while, but the  history of Zionism during the last  fifty years has shown unmistakably  that it is a forward movement.  Beginning in the form of a charitable work for Palestinian Jews, it  soon expanded into the colonization  of Palestine with Jews from other  countries; and ifc now seems to be  becoming the aim of thewhole race  of Israel to found a permanent home  in Palestine. Started by a few  philanthropists of a small section of  the globe, it has now become a  great national movement, resting^  firmly upon the masses.
