 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWOLDOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON: MONDAY -MORNING  MAY 21 J 900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  ROBERTS JPIAHHED RELIEF  Organization of the Column.  New Yohk, May liO.���In a lengthy  cable dispatch to tho Tribune filed  ub London at 1 o'clock this morning. Isaac N. Ford reviews the South  African war situation elaborates  upon the relief of Mafeking, and  gives his 'Version of the joyful  scenes in the metropolis over the  receipt .of the good news from the  long-besieged village. The dispatch  follows:  "London has been waving the flag  for twenty hours Avithout waiting  for official confirmation of the good  news from; Mafeking. This was still  lacking when the war oflice closed  ixli midnight, but the supposition  that president Kruger "might be beguiling the British empire was a  horrible pleasantry which did not  chill the ardour of the rollicking  crowds holding high carnival in the  streets.  "The chief additions to the store  of the public knowledge came from  Cape Town, where details respecting the organization  of the relief  column were at last allowed to pass  the  censor.     Bulletins  have been  received from the relief force from  time to time and there was no opposition until it  reached  Kraapan,  and   even    there   resistance    was  -feeble..    The strength of the force,  which was previously stated  to be  :j(K)0, has been reduced to 2000 and,  according to the latest version to  1.100, aud it  carried  the  following  guns,    two   pom-poms    and    two  Maxims and  3o  wagons  of stores  and ammunition.    Tho column  ad-  vanced at the rate of 20 miles a day,  keeping to the  west through  the  Vryburg   district and   halting  on  May   11th   at  Maiit/.an,   20  miles  south  of  Mafeking.    As the  Boer  .-i-sault Avas made ou the following  iUy, colonel Baden-Powell was de-  |. indent upon his own resources for  i cpulsing the'last desperate effort  " of fche enemy."  "The relief column entered Mafeking on Tuesday or Wednesday,  a ftw-meeting with little resistance.  One account, alleged to be from the  j rlief column, speaks of an attack  in sciong force upon it, after which  the Boers bolted, lighting a rear  guard action for some time.        '  "These details "are meagre, but it  is evident thafc tho function of the  j ��.-lief column was to attack the besieging force aud disperse it, rather  than to open the raihvay and  provision the starving town.   Its advance was closely timed with Rob-  ertn'   movement    northward    and  with Hunter's attack on Fourteen  -Streams, aud under cover of those  larger operations    it   escaped observation,      and.      having      been  organized     and     equipped     with  special     reference     to     mobility,  io     pressed     forward     with     all  j) jssible    dispatch.     The     retreat  of   the   Boers will enable colonel  J_J^nucrtp_cnterJWafeking from, tho  north with additional supplies and  the   railway   will  speedily be  repaired from Salisbury,  where general Carrington, with tho Australian  bushmen and the Canadian artillery  and other forces will,be in  a posi-  i ion to eo-operate with  the Mafeking garrison.  ���Whether the leader of the relief  column was colonel Mahon. who  was Kitchener's trusted lieutenant  in the Soudan, or some other officer  not yet named,,the main credit for  the deliverance of Mafeking belongs  to general Roberts "and general  Kitchener who planned tho movement with amazing skill and pre-  ebion. The success of this relief  -expedition is another proof of the  masterly generalship which has  t i-iinsformed the military situation  iu South Africa.  ''There was a disturbing report  during the day to-the effect that  colonel Baden-Powell had v been  dangerously wounded, but ifc was  not confirmed from any trustworthy source.  -The war office gave out at midnight a bulletin from general Buller  stating that Clery's division had  advanced fco Tngogo, and Dundonald  f,o Liing's nek, nearly overtaking  tlu> Boer column. Ingogo was the  pcene of a battle in the first war of  independence, and Majuba is close  ut hand. The extent of the damage  to the tunnel is not yet known with  precision. JJuller's march has been  unexpectedly rapid and his forces  , are now in a position to turn the  j-o^'ky defile which has ahvays been  iM^arded as impregnable against an  /IH^Uilt-  "Genera] Roberts' advance is not  jy>p >i led, but life cavalry is doing  effective work in scouring the district toward the Vaal.  '-���Columns might be written about  the public rejoicing in London yesterday. Business was virtually  suspended and the rollicking crowds  were in possession of the streets  from early morning until midnight.  The national anthem was sung by  5000 voices in the stock exchange.  There was a service of thanksgiving  in Sfc. Paul's and Westminster  Abbey was crowded in the afternoon.  "Baden-Powell's  mother's house  near Hyde Park corner was surrounded   hour   after    hour    with  throngs   cheering   lustily   for the  herb   of   'Mafeking.     Every   shop  front was aflame with the national  colors and at  night Pall Mall, the  Strand,   Piccadilly and Whitehall  were brilliantly illuminated.    Hour  after hour there was high revel iu  the  streets.     Every man,  woman  and    child    carried    a   flag     and  there was   a   saturnalia   of .practical    joking    and    high    spirits.  Even Ladysmith day was dull and  prosaic in comparison with Mafeking  day,  Avith its  multitudes  of  merrymakers,   its   street   parades,  musicians and flag bearers  marching to drum bea;t and bugle call, its  roaring choruses   at every corner  and its pandemonium  of madcap  hoodluinism  and holiday concerts.  The celebration Avas a spontaneous  outbreak of   public   rejoicing and  wasa most amazing revelation of  the fervor of metropolitan patriotism."  Boer Delegates' Reception.  Washington, May 20.���A good  sized audience greeted the Boers at  the reception given  them tonight  at the Grand  Opera House, under  the auspices of  the  congregational  and citizen's committe.    While officials of Washington Avere not represented in any manner, there were  probably thirty   members   of the  senate   and   the   house occupying  seats iu the auditorium and on the  stage.   Chairman Suisse?, of the reception committee, presided and' a  number   of addresses were madej  the speakers including Fischer, Wol-  maraus.and Wessels,'- thev Boer envoys, aud senator Warinton, < Hon.  Burke Cochran of New York', and  Mr, Sulzer.    Chairman Sulzer after  Aveicoming   the   envoys,  "said the  occasion    Avasr   non-partisan    and  non-political   in    character.    .The'  envoys   were   intodueed    by    Mr,  Sulzer and  were given a   cordial  reception., Commissioner Fischer's  remarks wero very much iii keeping  with what he already has said in  published   i titer vieAvs.     He    said:  "We have come to see Avhether in  the hearts of the people of a great  sister republic the spirit of  more  than a hundred years ago is still  alive.   We come to you as a great  liberty loving people in Avhom the  sense   of  justice   and fair play is  strong,  aud  look  to  you to Jind .a  practical scheme  to sustain peace  with justice."   Hon. Burke Cochran  of New York, spoke for over half  an   hour.     He  advocated  the  upholding of the Monroe doctrine.  Australian Federation Question.  New Yohk, May 20.���The Australian question is still unsettled, but  there have been conferences betAveen Mr. Chamberlain and the  delegates, a cabinet council has considered the expediency of a compromise, and the Unionists are  hoping that a second reading of the  commonwealth bill may be brought  about without a party division.  Apparently tho controversy Avill be  ended if the Australian parliament  be armed with full poAver to regulate tho conditions of an appeal to  the court of the empire, but Mr.  Chamberlain ha. not yefc been' convinced that the federal colonies  can be trusted fco that extent.  A HOT POLITICAL MEETING  Keen Galled Down.  Kaslo, May 20.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���There   was   a   red hot  political meeting in Sandon on Saturday night.   It Avas the first occasion on which the three Slocan can-  dates had met on one platform and  it was George Kane's first appearance before the people as a candidate   for. legislative honors.    The  feature of the meeting was Robert  Green's-roasting of John Keen for  the alleged part which the latter  took in the recent appeals against  800 names going on the voters' list.  Green declared that what he termed  the conspiracy  to   disfranchise  a  large   number   of Slocan working  men was hatched in the Kaslo hotel  by half a dozen men, and that Keen  was one-of the principals iii the  matter.    He went   after Keen in  strong language, denouncing   him  roundly.  George Kane, the Martin candidate, in an interview tonight, said :  "My   prospects    are    good.     The  miners' union is very much divided  between Green and myself. >Keen  will get none of the miners' votes."  George Kane declares that he can  poll: a.-,-good-'.proportion    of    the  miners' union vote, but;'Bob Green  is not Avorrying.   He knows that  the vote is his.   It is significant  that on-May 17, at a convention  held in Sandon, the miners', .union  there passed "a resolution to   the  effect that the interests of miners  in particular, and of Avorkingmen  in general, Avould be. best served by  endorsing the candidature of Robert  Green, the Provincial Party  candidate.  the pope, and other 18th century  notables. "Bobs," apparently, took  out a large  supply   of these and  has   sent   for   more,   Avhich   Avero  taken by  lady Roberts.   Regarding general Buller and his supplies,  there is also an interesting anecdote current.    Biilleiy it appears,  telegraphed   from  Natal to   some  wine   merchants   to   send  out c50  cases of champagne marked "castor  oil."   About the tiihe the wine was  due Buller wired to the officer in  charge of the base.'notifying him  that he expected 50 cases0of castor  oil,   which   he wished   dispatched  without delay.   Thejpfficer at the,  base replied,  regretting-the cases  liad'hot arrived, but'saying lie,had  procured  all the available ^castor  oil,   20  eases, wlnchv lie had   forwarded, iii the hope it would suffice  for the present.    General Buller's  remarks are not recorded.  , SOME GOSSIP FROM LONDON  VAGRANTS PACKING STONES  A Nervy Burglar.^  Kansas City, May 20.���A lone  "highwayman entered,the corridor  of the Coafcos hotel, one of fche leading hotels in Kansas Cifcy, afc 11:30,  o'clock tonight, and, forcing the  strong box in the cigar stand, escaped.- The box contained diamonds valued afc $1200, $250 in gold  currency and silver, and checks to  the amount of $100. He had the  night clerk and another employee  of the hotel held off afc the point of  his revolver and escaped on a horse  he had tied to the curbing.  Stabbed in Her Bed.  Boston, May 20.���Mae Butler,' an  unusually handsome AA'oraan, 25  years old aud said to have been  married, was found dead in bed at  the residence of Mrs. A, E. Wright  early this morning Avith a dagger  In her breast. Edwin T. Wright,  son of Mrs. Wright, is under arrest  charged Avsfch the crime.  little News From the Front.  New   York, -May 20.���Isaac N.  Ford, in his latest London cable to  this morning's Tribune, filed afc 6  o'clock this morning, is without additional official, confirmation of the  relief of Mafeking, though concurrent confirmation is treated by him  as positive proof of fche raising of  the* siege.. He  says:   "No official  neAys of relief of Mafeking has yet  been received at the Avar office, but  from more than one source it is  reported that the siege r was raised  last    Wednesday.     The   columns  of     the     newspapers    are   again  filled     Avith     accounts     of    national      rejoicings      in     Londou  and     the   provinces,   but,   apart  from       general       Buller's     .dispatch,   there is very   little fresh  intelligence   from   the   front   this  morning.    Ifc is   reported   that  a  British column is advancing on the  Transvaal from Zululand, but no  details     are   forthcoming.     Telegrams, Avhich have   been received  through unofficial channels, of Hutton's   capture   of   the   Boer  commandants   at "Bothaville   do    not  specially mention that Louis Botha,  commandant-general of the federal  troops, Avas made a prisoner.   Gen-  eral���Rundle ~Avas,~ on ~Friday,_~afc  Trommel.   28   miles   southeast   ot  Winburg.     His , march   has   been  through   an   exceedingly   difficult  country, but he does not appear to  have met Avith any opposition."  Gladstone's Monument.  London, May 19.���F. W. Pome-  roy's statute of Gladstone, in the  central lobby of the house of parliament, Avas unveiled today Avifch.  appropriate ceremonies, Avhich  Avere Avitnessed by a throng of  prominent persons. Lord Tweed-  mouth presided over the ceremonies  and the oration was delivered by  sir Henry Campbell-Bamierman.  The statute is considered by  those Avho kneAv Mr. Gladstone  intimately as a splendid . work  of art. It represents the great  statesman Avith lifelike fidelity in  one of his characteristic attitudes  as an orator. The statue is of  Carrara marble, and, including the  plinth on which ifc rests, is eight  feet in height. The statue is a  memorial by Liberals of their great  leader, and the cost Avas defrayed  from the Gladstone Liberal  memorial fund. The statue occupies a commanding position in the  central hall of St. Stephen\ near  the replicas in marble of Lord  Granville, Earl Russell and Lord  Iddesleigh.  Spokane Solution of Problem.  Spokane, May 20.���For   a   long  time it has been the custom to make  men sentenced to pfr-ison for vagrancy work on the streets or break  stones,   but   the  authorities   here  have have hit on a plan which the  '.'vags" like   still   le^s, and which  works admirably frbin the police  depaatmeht's  poiht'rt'of-- view.   In  years past   the    men "s-have   been  Avorked Avith a long: chain and a  ball that Aveighed from 30 to  50  pounds.    Now   they^ are   worked  Avith only a short chain attached to  their  ankles.   It alJjoAVs   them " to  step but twelve inches at a time.  It   is   not   the intention  of chief  Witherspoon to get any work out  of the men that may be said to  benefit the city.    They are made to  carry a pile of heavy stone from  one part of the yard to the other,  and then take it back again to the  same place. - , -  "The work breaks ihe Jiearfc of a  man," is the way the chief of police  states it. - "He carries-a stone from  one place to the other aud never  gets anything done.. Jf Jie is doing  work that accomplishes something  he' has something new-to think  about all the time, and does not  feel ' his punishment. Since - Ave1  have had the men out there at Avork.  I have not heard of a ease of begging in the city, Avliile before we  Avere bothered continually by telephone messages about tramps and  thieA'es. As long as ifc is necessary  AA-e Avill keep the men at it."  The men are managed by officer  Shannon in the work iioav being  done. For a AA'eek six ^of them  haAre been at Avork, and yesterday  the crowd Avas called before the  chief, Avho gaAre the meu a' talk like  fchis: "Boys, you're discharged.  You owe a fine of $.H. Of it you  have paid, at $1.50 a day, just $9  each. Get out now, and if you  come back and are brought in here,  you will be put back on the stone  for the balance of the fine."  The men_were_fcben_taken to the  city limits and pointed for the tall  timber, Avith a Avaruing that a return to the city Avould lead to further demonstration of the theory  that the Avay of-the transgressor is  hard, and the path of the Avicked  thorny.  In Parliament and Society.  London, May 20.���The debates at  Westminster are utterly stagnant;  the only diversion which the commons have enjoyed is the spectacle  presented by Mr. Samuel Smith in  Avarning the public against the degeneracy of the modern drama, and  urging a stricter censorship of plays.  That stern moralist, Avho never  goes to the theatre, and condemns  it on hearsay evidence, has also  taken up arms against the sensuous  and indelicate modes   of dressing  in London society, and strange-,  ly enough, justifies- his plea  by the assertion that simple  children of nature from America  are scandalized and shocked by  English improprieties. Diversions  like these are welcome, for the  weather is raw and cold this spring,  being the latest known for many  years, and the social season is dragging sadly in spite of the efforts of  the court to impart an impulse  tq it. ���������  A; third state concert is vaguely  promised, but neither drawingrobms  nor concerts offer compensation for  the decision that "there- shall be no  court ball during the season, for  this has been the intimation to the  great houses, that social gaieties,  should be moderated during a  period of. war, when thousands of  families are in mourning for the  loss of relatives and friends.  The queen,is visiting Wellington  college today; the Australian delegates are dining at Cambridge;  Lord Carringford is chairman of the  principal charity dinner of the  eA'ening, and the most interesting  ceremonial of the day is the unveiling of the Liberal memorial statue  to Gladstone in the central hall of  the house,.of parliament. Sir Henry  Campbell-Bannerman made an address, "and the ceremony Avas  ��� attended by a hundred or more  privileged spectators, including ,a  group of Mr. Gladstone's associates  and the general committee" of the  memorial fund.  them their all, but thisAvas promptly  remedied by the relief fund so  generously handed iu by neighboring towns, and which was most  conscientiously distributed by  mayor Pitts Avho is worthy of the  esteem in which he is held by the  whole community. We have a  daily freight service from Nelson  and quick dispatch from other  points, aud our merchants are up to  date and capable of" handling all  the business offered.  J. C. Creese.  KROGER SOING FOR PEACE  Plague in San Francisco.  San  Francisco,   May   19.���The  board   of   health   has   adopted   a  resolution declaring that bubonic  plague   exists   in   San    Francisco.  The   health   authorities sayv.. that  Avhile there are no living cases here,  there have been six deaths during  the past three months, and they  haAre decided to take precautions  against the development and spread  of   the   disease.     The   resolution,  which Avas adopted, reads as follows:     "Resolved, That it is   the  sense of this board that bubonic  plague exists in fche city and county  of San Francisco, and that all necessary steps already, taken for the  prevention of its spread   be continued, together with   such additional measures as may be required."  This morning V force? of physicians;  went through Chinatown to treat  ; the Chinese AA'ith haffkine prophy-  latie as a preventive against the  plague.; The members of, the board  of health say that there is .absolutely no danger of   the development or spread of   the disease in  San Francisco, but that they do not  propose to take any chances and it  is their duty to take precautions.  Chicago, May 19.���Assistant surgeon A. S. Lloyd of the United  States marine hospital here has  been ordered to San Francisco to  assist in the Avork of the prevention  of the spread of the bubonic plague,  if it should break out.  Think He is on the Fence,  Men Avho do not relish  Joseph  Martin in provincial polities are uneasy upon the question of Dr. Hall's  candidature..    Dr.  Hall in  Nelson  has  announced   his   opposition  to  premier Martin,  bufc��� the  ominous  fact remains that the doctor  announced   his   candidature   after a  consultation Avitli lion.Smith Curtis,  Avho is Martin's right bauer in Kootenay.    This uneasiness is increased  in view of the stories of candidate  Hall's position Avhich are being circulated in, Ymir by a Mr. Parr, avhois the recognized'Martin missionary  iu his section, and aa'Iio  is also the  chief booster for candidate Hall in  Ymir.    Liberals  avIio are opposed  to Martin say they cannot vote for  a man who appeals to be playing a  double game Thoy-say candidate-  JJail's performance on the platform  is too satisfactory to Smith Curtis  and Alfred Pari*, dining together at  tho Hume, to satisfy them, aud  their fears are no doubt Avell  founded.  Whitewater Solid for Green."  Sandon, May 19.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Candidate Keen held a  meeting at Whitewater last night,  and candidate Green Avas there to  meet him, so the electors, Avho are  Avorking miners, had an opportunity co hear both. Green' captured  the good Avill of the meeting and  held it, and Whitewater will give  him almosfc a solid A'ote.  Wil-  and  pro-  Bobs and Buller.  London, May 19.���According to  the latest story going tbe rounds,  "Bobs" fights on "Bath Olivers."  These are not a neAV form of coin-  pressed ration, but a simple looking biscuit' made at Bath, the first  recipe for which is credited to the  celebrated Dr. Oliver, a friend of  Murder and Suicide.,  Denver, May 20.���Walter  Hams, deputy coroner, shot  killed William Downer, the  prietor of a bath house this, after  noon, and then killed himself. The  killing occurred at the establishment of DoAvner, and no Avitnesses-  Avere present. Domestic trouble is  given as the cause.  Big Haul Made.

Little is heard of it. but a  ten-stamp mill is running steadily,  crushing an average of thirty tons  of ore a tiny, and there is enough  -ore blocked out to run the mill a  year, A week ago Avork was commenced on a tunnel, Avhich is being  run in on the ledge, that will opent  the ground to n.depth of 100 feet,  No mine -in this section is ,more  favorably situated for economical  Avorking. Kino AA'ater power has  been developed, there i.s an abundance of timber handy, and the ore  is of a uniformly good grade. The  mill is thu most complete one iu  Kootenay, and it Ava.s the only one  that ran continuously last Avinter.  All the buildings are lighted by  electricity.

Ralph Smith; accompanied by  William Woodman and J.-H. Haw-  thornewhaifce of Nanaimo reached  Nelson last night, coming via ReA'el-  stoke. Mr. Smith is one of the besfc  known members of* the last legislature, and one of the members Avho  had the respect of his opponents.  He represents the coal miners of  Nanaimo, and is credited with  being the ablest labor leader in the  'Dominion. Ifc is not likely that he  Avill be opposed in Nanaimo cifcy, or,  if he has opposition, that it Avill  amount to much. "Mr' Smith and  the gentlemen Avho accompany him  Avill address the electors of Nelsou  tonight in Fraternity hall. AH  those who sympathise Avith organized labor are requested to be present. The meeting is timed"for 8.30'  o'clock.    A Doctor's Easy Graft.  A doctor named Travis is to he  found daily on fche Spokane train  between Northport and Marcus,  He tells-every-one fco shoAv~hiin~  their arms, and, if vaccinated, he  gives them a certificate, for Avhich  he charges 50 cents, and if not  vaccinated lie vaccinates them and  charges them $1. lie has no right  whatever to do this. Since the  Dominion authorities took over the  quarantine business a Canadian  doctor has been stationed afc North-  port Avho will, Avhen necessary, vac-  c-innate passengers free of charge,  and only those who havo not been  vaccinated afc all are put to that inconvenience. In the meantime Dr.r  Travis is making a fat thing out of  passengers avIio are unaware of fche  true state of affairs.  Riots in Great Britain.  London, May 21.-3:10   a. in.���  Displayed in the most conspicuous  style in the Daily Express is the  dominant   news   of  the   morning.  "We have the best reasons for stating that in the last 24 hours a telegram   has   been   received   at   the  foreign office, addressed personally  to the prime minister from president Kruger; proposing   terms of  peace.   The terras of the message  cannot be stated at  present, but  we believe they aro, couched in an  exceedingly humble strain. It is inconceivable, of course, that lord Salisbury can hg,ve sent any reply except the one that stands ready on  the lips of every   Briton���unconditional surrender."  The   boisterous   rejoicings   over  the news from Mafeking have become   riots   in- parts   of   London,  Aberdeen   and   Belfast   and   elsewhere in the United Kingdom.    Iu  the Finchley district of suburban  Londou   a  mob stoned a railway  stationmaster's house and smashed  the windows of  a draper's shop,  setting   the building on fire also,  although '-'Whether by accident or  design   is ; not iyetknoAvn.     Two  clerks were injuredV-  The ?house of'  a Boer sympathiser at Hadlesden  Avas attacked by; a large crowd and  the AvindpAvs were shattered.   The  police charged the mob and  were  met Avith a shower of decayed eggs, *'  The police reserves were called out.  Rioting took place in Aberdeen  from 9  to   10   p.m.   on   Saturday  around a hall" where a "stop tho  AA'ar" meeting Avas being addressed  by Mr. Schreiner, husband of Oliver  Schreiner.    Crowd of students and  others tried to storm the hall and  to break doAvn the, doors.   The foot  police,were unable to cope with the  disturbers aud sent; for the mounted  police, Avho made some   headway  Avifch the crowd, but free  fights occurred between  the supporters of  the meeting   and   the   crowd.    A  number of arrests were made, and  finally the chief magistrate ordered  the chief constable to call out the  militia.    The Gordon   Highlanders  from   the    Castle    barracks    then  'cleared the streets.  It uoav appears that the Dewet *  who offered to surrender Avith 10001  men was not the \A'ell known general     Dewet,     but     commandant  Dewefc.   He stipulated thafc his men    '  should   be   alloAved   to   return   to  their farms,    Lord Roberts replied  that the surrender must be unconditional.  At Dover the business establishment of Mr. Browne, member of fche  local chamber of commerce, was  Avreeked by a mob.

London, May 20.���-Fresh advices  from the expedition to Abyssinia,  headed by William F. Whitehouse  -of Newport, Rhode Island, show  that the party Avill probably divide  near Lake Rudolph, if ifc is found  thafc in the country to the north between the lake and the Nile there is  difficulty in obtaining supplies.  This is regarded as probable,'as the  country has not been explored, and  is reported to be continually raided.  The expedition had, according to  the last news received, 04 camels,  but there Avas an insufficient  amount of food, AA'hich may necessitate only a portion of the party of  travelers proceeding to fche Nile,  while fche remainder may retrace  their steps to the coast.

Premier  Martin has a full ticket, four in the  Held, in Vancouver, but against  these Martinites the Vancouver  trades and labor uuions have nominated two candidates. The head of  the Vancouver labor ticket is Fred  Williams, a journeyman tailor, avIio  has served as financial secretary of  the Trades and Labor Council, and  the other member is J. Dixon,  president of the Trades aud Labor  Council. These two labor candidates Avere the choice of a monster  convention, at Avhich 103 delegates  Avere present, and over which Ralph  Smith, the recognized leader of the  labor party in the province, presided. It Avill thus be seen, that in  Vancouver the labor party is making a common fight Avith the  Provincial Party against the "Wilson  Conservatives and the followers of  Joseph Martin.  D. M. Eherts, who filled the position of attorney-general in J. H.  Martiu's  cabinet, is  outspoken in  his opposition   to   the   eight-hour  law.    In addressing the electors of  Kamloops   the   other evening  ex-  attorney-general Eberts said that  while an eight-hour day might be a  good day's  work, there  should  be  no law to prevent a man from contracting  for  ten  hours' work  per  day.    This makes it very clear that  ex-attorney-general   Eberts   is   in  favor of the principle of the eight-  hour law, but is opposed  to the  penalty   clause.     The only  difference   between  ex-attorney-general  Eberts and the Conservative and  Independent   candidates   throughout  the province is that the ex-  attorney-general has sufficient courage to state his opposition to the  laAV, Avhile the others have not. ,  MAY  21   1900  &2"<^ ��� ^* *^>; ^ ��� w. ��� ^, -^ ��� ^ -^^ >**, .SJN^.^J.^ i^.^.

ItoiiRRT Macpherson, the  Vancouver   labor    representative  Avho  deserted the labor party for a place  upon the Martin ticket in  Vancouver, is having a most uncomfortable time now.

The other evening   iu Vancouver.  Mr. Macpherson attempted to address a meeting  of wage earners,  when several demanded that  the  speaker explain Avhy he had turned  his coat.   In response to this Mr.  Macpherson gave the following explanation, Avhich is worth preserving:    "I  am  supporting principles,  " not men.    I would nofc support  " the   Provincial   Party   platform,  ""but-1- can-support" Hon. "Joseph"  " Martin's platform.    I  told them  " at the convention that I had dif-  " fered  from  lion.

ROBERTS' CREAT STRATECY  '.Movements Described.  New Yohk, May 20.���In his London cable letter to the Tribune,  Isaac Ford predicts tho annexation  of the Free State by proclamation  of lord Roberts upon the Queen's  Jiirthday, May 24, and discusses in  it at sonio length the strategy of  11 lat commander.    11 e says:  "The   apathy   wibh   which   the  development of lord Roberts' campaign   has   been   followed  by  the  Knglish  public   contrasts  strongly  u ith the carnival scenes of rejoicing  witnessed last night in the streets  of Londor, when the tidings of the  relief of Mafeking were announced.  The explanation lies in tho fact that  Uritish   strategy   appeals   to   the  judgment only, but the rescue of an  heroic  garrison   by   a   mysterious  lelief column, whose  leader  is  not  known,   touches   the    imagination  n nd lights it up.    Roberts' strategy  i��  recognized as  suitable   for  tho  emergency; the defence of Mafeking  i-> a feat of arms whicli  appeals  to  n itional  pride, and  it  is  matched  hy   the   brilliant   conduct   of the  small relief expedition-, starting nobody knows where, but coming out  in  the nick of time  at  the right  place, when  Baden-Powell  had  repulsed the final attack.  ���'Englishmen have a i ight to  be  proud of these two exploits, which  " are as stirring as  anything in the  history of the empire.  "There has been nothing finer,in  __ tLc military annals of the century  " than the precision with which lord  iioberts     has     calculated    forces,  adapted means to ends and carried  ili to'practice the scientific principles  ��.f the dynamics  of   war.    The relief column was not too large to be.  mobile, yet strong enough to do its  , wjrkwell.  It started iil< the  right  in anient,    when   the    Boer    commandoes    could    not   be    massed  against it, and it arrived at the appointed time.    The clearance of the  Ki ee State and the advance towards  1 lie Vaal have been  ordered  with  equal certainty of   judgment, and  the strategy was even more scientific  tlrin the opening of Roberts'  campaign in the direction of Kimberley  and Bloemfontein.  "The manoeuvres and operations  row in progress aie leading almost  inevitably to th& speedy annexa-  lion of the Free State. It is believed in influential circles that lord  Roberts intends to issue a proclamation on the queen's birthday,  _and_that _the_ movcments_of _the  next few days will be conducted  with that end in view. When  Rethlehem and Heilbron are oeeu-  p:ed the conquest of the Free State  will be completed, and a proclamation of annexation will be a convenient substitute for a convention  or treaty of peace. With Methuen  ���it lEoopstadVBroadwood at Lindley, aud Rundle marching eastward  fiom the Winburg-Ladybrand line,  ihere is cumulative evidence of  Huberts' plans for the observance of  11ic^queen's birthday in a manner  as unique as his method of celebrating Majuba day."  REBUILDING   OF   SANDQBT.  Sandon P.ij streak.  In an interview on the subject of  t lie new streeb, J. M. LEarns said  yesterday thab he was willing to  consider any reasonable proposition  t o wliich the other property holders  would be agreeable. He saw no  great difficulties in the way and believed that a CO-foob sbreeb on the  lines of the new survey could be  accomplished. Outside of Himself  and Sproat there were only eight  property holders along the hillside  of Reeo avenqc. Tho holders along  tho othei side of the street would  nob be materially affected as bhe re-  survey would simply move their lots  back from the flume 50 feet and give  them the same area on Reco avenue.  His own lots from theIJroddy block  to the lower end of the town would  be made practically valueless by  the change and it was from these  Jots that he derived the greatest  part of his ground rent revenue.  J fe was ready and willing1 to sacrifice this property and depend for a  partial reimbursement on the enhanced value which the street  would give to the property he held  in the area between the ilume and  the C. P. R. This, he considered,  would not be by any means an adequate return for the values he  would lose by the change, but he  was willing to make the sacrifice in  order that the townsite would be  possible to get insurance aud thereby safeguard future investments in  buildings and future leases of land.

Blouet, (Max O'Rell) is now in  London, taking a rest after a breakdown following on his American  tour, says a London dispatch.  Jn conversation wibh a reporter  he said : ''You ask me, does America really sympathize with the  Boers ? Now, you wanb me bo bell  you bhe brubh, and nob to say pleas-  anb things merely because they are  pleasant? Then I reply. Absolutely!  wherever I went in America, outside the 'smart set' in New York, I  found opinion strongly opposed to  you.  "A public lecturer has, perhaps,  unusual opportunities for discovering what people really think. In  my lecture on John Bull, the same  lecture, by the way, which I have  continually delivered in this country���I illustrated my points by reference to tho Boer war. ��� I pointed  out thab John Bull's little foible is  self-sufficiency, and his willingness  to take on the whole world in a  fight, if it wished. Then I went on  to describe the beautiful trait in  his character���his utter lack of suspicion. I showed how he allowed  the Afrikander bund, an organization wholly opposed to British dominion, to develop undisturbed in  his own colony.  "When I spoke of the natural  sympathy all people feel for a little  nation fighting a great power, I  was ahvays cheered, but when I  went on to say that such sympathy  did nob alter,the fact, that a Boer  triumph would put South Africa,  back a hundred years, I was always  hissed���always.  "In short my experience was thafc  outside of a small set in the eastern  states, and apart from some New  York and Boston newspapers, the  whole trend of opinion is hostile to  England.

"And," added Max O'Rell, "as for  an Anglo-American alliance, let me  tell you that it would instantly kill  the American government who  would propose or sanction it. The  mass of American people are dead  against it.  "Nothing amuses me more than  to see Americans making money in  England by having the Stars and  Stripes and the Union Jack waving together!

Maslouka were laid to rest  in the Union cemetery yesterday  with Salvation Army honors. The  sad fatality by which the child's  life was cut off elicited widespread  sympathy, and the obsequies were  witnessed by scores of citizens. At  2.30 o'clock the army corps paraded  to the bereaved home, and then  marched with the little casket to  the cemetery, where interment was  made. Along the line of march the  band, under the direction of conductor Frost, rendered the solemn  Army Dead March. At the house  and grave touching services were  led by captain Haas, lieutenant  Johnson and sergeant-major Mrs.  Frost, u Service was also held at  the barracks by tho ofiicers. The  pallbearers were soldiers Munroe,  Blosson, Thompson and Holden.  Ymir is All Hight.  No town in the province has a  better prospect of continued prosperity than Ymir. There are hundreds of good showings within ten  miles, and many of them are beyond the prospect stage. The  largest stamp mill in the province  is situated only five miles distant,  and it has behind it a mine that  can supply it with ore for many  years. Within three miles is another equally good mine, once its  affairs are straightened out. There  are a dozen others on which large  sums have been expended.  Charged with Evading License.  Thomas Morley of Nelson, a traveler for the Thomson' Stationery  Compauy, was before magistrate  Boultbee Friday on a charge of  ^soliciting orders for goods not manufactured in the city when he had  no traders' license from the eity.  In defence he claimed that his company was incorporated under provincial law, paid a license to the  government and was therefore exempt from any further license to  be paid the city. A decision was  deferred till Wednesday.���Rossland  Record.
