 --:--.->r��f|  DAILY EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO, DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING   MAY 19  J 900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS  HE METROPOLIS WENT MAD  Scenes in Theatres and Streets.  London, May  19.���1  a.m.���Loudon's millions spent half  tho time  in the street today, and at ~> o'clock  i his  morning  groups of   men   are  .singing and cheering and there are  crowds  in   front  of   the   Mansion  House,   Marlborough    House,    the  clubs  ou  Pall  Mall,  and  the  war  office   and   iu  Parliament   Square,  waving flags and joining in national  airs.   This sustained bellowing and  uproar  of hundreds  of  thousands  amazes the Englishman, who ceases  for a moment to be an actor and  becomes merely an observer.  Sober  phlegmatic London is besides itself  with   emotion.      Gusts    of   patriotism     have     set       the       town  quivering  twice, or   thrice before,  ( u ing    the    Avar,    but    nothing  J as quite equalled  tonight's  hundred squares and   miles  of almost  fii'ious demonstration.     It was  a  i ui'ious thing for the onlookers  to  see   solemn   grey-haired men  toss  their opera hats iuto the air  aud  'join in the hurrah and cheers when  a wreath crowned banner with the  portrait   of   colonel  Baden-Powell  passed   along   the  street.     Smart  women in broughams waved union  jacks out of the windows,  conventional family parties trooped about  1 lie corners to take part in singing  God Save the Queen.     Everywhere  was abundant good feeling and an  astonishing roar of human voices.  Jt was all brought about by a  twenty word telegram from Pretoria that '"Mafeking had been relieved, although the government not a word aud although nothing confirmatory has yet been received from any African sources except Pretoiia, nobody apparently  questions the news.  Arthur J. Balfour speaking from  i he   government* bench   late   last  ~ evening, said:  *"TJii}: only news I havc is through  , the courtesy of the press. ,We  have no information at the war  ��� >lfiee:iior would we have it as soon  a-i it would arrive through other  channels. Therefore, the fact that  wc have not received it neither  j troves nor disproves the accuracy  of the information. 1 need hardly  *.iy that we trust aud have good  i oason to think that it is probably  Irtie."     '    .  .Mr. George Wyndham, parliamentary iiiider-secrefcary for war,  replying to several members of the  house who had privately interrogated him, said: "Although" the  government has heard nothing, I  :iiu disposed to believe the Boer  bulletin. It may be tomorrow, aud  pcihaps even Monday before the  government would get dispatches  J'rom our military commanders,  even if tho siege were raised two  days ago, as the news would need  io be conveyed over a very Jong  -d.stance by-messenger-on horseback, whereas the enemy would  probably be able to avail themselves of telegraphic eommuuica-  ii..n."  Colonel   Baden-Powell's   brother  in Loudon has received a cablegram  ,1'iom a  Dutch friend in Pretoria,  ������lying   that   .Mafeking   had   been  relieved. '     s  The performances in the London  music halls and the theatres lusfc  (veiling had little for stage  business or for the lines of their  pieces. The audiences which  nowded tho Allnunbra, Empire,  Go vent Garden and tho theatres  hu'd no desire to attend to a stage  performance. The first sight of a  biograph scene in tiie Transvaal or  the first glimpse of a military or  naval costume on the stage was  sufficient to creat au uproar. A  leading actor iu one' of the Strand  theatres said, "I did not attempt to  icad my lines last evening. It was  of no use. , The public had no interest in me beyond the fact that 1  wore a military uniform."  At Her Majesty's theatre, the  G.irrick, where "Saza" is being  played, and at the other - houses  where legitimate plays hold the  boards, the occupants of boxes,  stalls and galleries sang in chorus  '���God Save the Queen," and "Soldiers of the Queen," between acts  in order to give vent to their enthusiasm although they settled  down to the program afterwards,  i At tho music halls, however, no one  pretended to take interest; in any-  Ihing not having military color.  Tho princess of Wales, the duke  \ nnd da-chess of York, and the Por  tuguese minister occupied a box at  Covent Garden, where "Lohengrin"  was being presented, and, when the  relief of Mafeking was announced,  they joined heartily in the applause.  The London fire insurance laws  make fireworks impossible, and the  city lacked the blaze of illumination   characteristic   of   any  other  city during a similar rejoicing. The  Britisher,   therefore,   relies    upon  lung power, and from   St.  Paul's  Cathedral,    Westminster    Abbey,  and up through Piccadilly to Hyde  Park there was a Niagara like roar,  incessant, rising and falling hour  after hour, as the .masses   passed  through   London's    thoroughfares  like the processions ou the eve of a  presidential election in the  United  States.   There was a lack of pyrotechnic glare, but every cabby aud  every  busman in   London   had   a  Union   Jack   fluttering    from   his  whip, and   the   stars   and stripes  were by no means lacking.     Patrons of four   wheelers   were   not  content to ride inside the vehicles,  and the tops were crowded with  flag  waving,  cheering enthusiasts.  At Carlton Hotel, which is filfed  with Americans, the bands played  "Marching Through Georgia" which  has been   adapted   to  an English  song,   eutitled  "Marching to  Pretoria."    "Dixie" and other American airs were played. Ten thousand  people stood in front of Mrs. Baden-  Powell's house in St. George's Place  cheering and singing, and a score of  cabs brought congratulations.  Miss  Baden-Powell, the .colonel's sister,  said:     "The   same   tale has been  brought us many times during the  last anxious month.   The war office  has promised us the  earliest information.    We only hope it is true."  Later in the evening colonel Baden-  Powell's mother sent word that she  had retired, aud .'.'that if any telegram came she was not to be disturbed until morning.  The boys of the Charter House  school, where Baden-Powell was  educated, were aroused from sleep  by the news, and the institution  quickly became a veritable pandemonium of noise and joy. As soon  as the information of the relief was  i eceived, the lord mayor sent the  following dispatch to colonel Baden-"  Powell:  "The citizens of London to the  relieved: They rejoice hrthe good  news received. Your gallant defense will Jong live in British annals. Cable what money is needed  for the garrison and inhabitants  after the long privations."  Li unrestrained jubilation the  provinces are not behind the metropolis. Although London had the  start by a few minutes, the great  industrial centres and surrounding  towns suddenly burst into patriotic demonstrations. Bells clashed  in their steeples/ "village bands  turned out and the people gathered  in the squares to chant fervently  "God Save the Queen." Prom all  parts of the empire comes the same  story." Bombay, Hong Kong and  the Australian cities are rejoicing.  Continental cities, as the press telegrams abundantly testified, received the uews~gladly;  Under the head of "How the  News was received" the Daily  Chi oniole, says:  "The telegram to the Associated  Press from Pretoria, the historic  dispatch announcing the relief of  Mafeking, was sent from the capital  of the Transvaal at 11:35 a.m., May  18th. When ib reached the London  office at 9:10 p.m., it was instantly  disp'itchcd to every quarter of the  globe. By 10:30 p.m. had come a  response from far olf Toronto describing ihe reception of the news  there. This is not surprising in  view of the fact that, four minutes"  after the receipt of the telegram, it  was in the Associated Press oflice  in iVcv York, - whence it Avas forwarded to the furthest limits of the  North American continent."  The relief of Mafeking has had  the effect of suspending for a moment interest in the operations elsewhere in the field of warfare.  Nevertheless yesterday brought important _, official announcements.  Lord Methiien entered Hoopstadt  on Thursday. He is now 70 miles  from Kroonstadt and 50 miles from  Bothaville. Goneral Buller entered  Newcastle on Thursday evening.  Lord Roberts is not idle. While  waiting for stores at Kroonstadt he  is using his mounted men to search  a wide track of country. Colonel  Broadwood occupied Lindley ou  Thursday, and the same day general  Hutton captured one of the Bothas,  30 miles from Kroonstadt. General  Rundle on Thursday encamped at  Clocoland. British successes are  thus reported at every point from  which news came yesterday.  LONDON'S CHEERING CROWDS  Joy Over the Belief.  London,   May   18.-9:18   p.m.���  Mafeking has been relieved.  9:10 p.m.���The dispatches of the  Associated   Press   announcing the  relief of Mafeking were posted outside   the Mansion  House and the  news  spread rapidly and a large  crowd collected.   At this hour all  the streets in the neighborhood are  resounding with cheers.   The war  office at 9 o'clock announced that no  news had been received, and at 9:40  the lord mayor, A. J. Newton, in  his official robes of oflice, announced  the joyful news to the crowd outside.   The masses of people outside  the Mansion House soon grew to  such   dimensions   that   the  police  were compelled to divert all traffic,  omnibuses,  etc., through the side  streets.  The cheering is now incessant.  The lord mayor was accompanied  by the lady mayoress to the front  of the Mansion House where an immense portrait of colonel Baden-  Powell was displayed, bearing the  words "Mafeking Relieved." While  the attendants were waving Union  Jacks the lord mayor addressed the  crowd saying :  "I wish your cheers could reach  Mafeking."  Here the speech was interrupted  by redoubled cheering aud singing  of Rule Brittania, after whicli the  lord mayor remarked "We never  doubted what the end would be, or  that pluck or courage would not  conquer at last."  The lord mayor then led the  crowd in singing "God Save the  Queen" and "Soldiers of the Queen,"  and, with renewed cheering, and  the waving of flags by the assembled multitudes and the singing of  "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow,"  the mayor and his party retired.  Later.���The special editions of  the newspapers appeared and the  tickers announced the news in all  the resorts. In tJie West End,  leading thoroughfares were eventually impeded by a constant stream  of people cheering themselves  hoarse and singing "God Save the  Queen" and "Soldiers of the Queen."  The enthusiasm as this dispatch is  sent promises to outrival the scenes  attending the relief of Ladysmith.  A reporter of the Associated  Press inquired at the foreign oflice,  and the resident clerk said nothing  had heen received there yet in confirmation of the news from Pretoria  of the relief of Mafeking.  The dispatch of the Associated  Press containing the news of the  relief of the long besieged place was  sent to the house of parliament.  There it created a great deal of excitement in the press gallery and  lobbies, and soon began to be circulated among' the members of the  house of commons. Mr. Thomas  Chadderwick, advanced .Liberal  member of the Wick district, amid  considerable excitement, said he understood that news of the relief of  Mafeking had been -received. Was  that so? No minister made any  reply, and the debate was killed.  The house no longer took any interest in it,-and the members went  into the lobbies to discuss the great  event.  each of these countries  part of the capital expended  been in commerce and banking,,  real estate and plantations being  apparently deemed next in profitable importance, while the interest  in industry and trade is comparatively slight. iv  POSTS'I STOCK EXPERTS IN NEISON  SUCCESSES ON ALI  oiDES  Official Dispatches  London, 3Iay 18.���Foi wing is  the text of lord Roberts' dispatch  to the war office; 1  "Kroonstadt, May 18.���Methuen  entered Hoopstadt yesterday unopposed. Generals Duprey and Daniels and 40 men have surrendered.  "Broadwood occupied Lindley  yesterday after slight opposition.  Only two of the men were wounded.  Steyn was not there, and his government officials had left last  Sunday.  "Hutton's mounted infantry yesterday surprised and captured,  about thirty miles northwest of  this place, commandant Botha,  field cornet Gassore, five Johannesburg policemen and seventeen  Boers. There were no casualties on  our side. '-  "Buller reports that several Natal  farmers are handing in arms."  London, May 18.���4.14,p.m.���It  has just been officially announced  . that general Methuen entered Hoopstadt yesterday tfnopposed, that  generals Duprey and Daniels and  40 men have surrendered and that  Broadwood occupied Lindley yesterday.  It is further announced that Hutton's mounted" infantry yesterday  surprised and captured commandant Botha and 23 others, 30 miles  northwest of Kroonstadt.  German Money in South Africa.  Washington, May 18.���In view  of the recent Monroe doctrine  speech of secretary Root aud senator Lodge, particular interest attaches to the forthcoming bulletin  from the Bureau of American republics, because of a page treating  of the extent of the Gorman interests in the Americas. This article was prepared some time before public attention had been attracted to the matter "by the  speeches referred, so that the publication is rather through coincidence than by design. The fact is  established, however, that the German interests in the Americas  reach the enormous total of five  billions of marks, and that this  statement is official appears clearly  from the fact that the article is  based upon a translation from a  statement prepared by the imperial  German minister of marine and published in the "Kolniche Zeitung," a  semi-official paper. Senator Lodge's  utterances have specified what he  believed to be German eueroa element in Argentine, Bra/.il and  Southern Chili. The figures on this  point also are of prime interest.  According to the statement, about  six hundred million marks have  been invested in the Argentine Republic, three hundred and fifty  million marks in Brazil, and three  hundred million marks in Chile. In  CONFIRMATION   OF  RELIEF  Boers Admit It.  Pretoria, May 18.���It was officially announced tod&y that when  the laagers and forts around Mafe-  kiug'had been severely bombarded,  the siege was abandoned.   "  London, May IS.���A- special dispatch from Amsterdam says a telegram from a" Boer source announces  that Mafeking was relieved Tuesday. The recipient of the telegram  is credited with having heard of  the relief of Ladysmith before it  was announced.  London, May 18.���A special dispatch from Lorenxo Marquez, dated  yesterday, says ihe last 500 refugees who arrived there agree in  stating that Mafeking had been relieved.  The end of the war is anticipated  by the queen's birthday. It is  stated at the war office that no  news as to the relief of Mafeking  had been received up to 8 o'clock  this morning.  News no Time to Come.  London, May 17.���Replying to a  question in the house of commons  -this afternoon, the-parliamen fcary  secretary of the war office, George  Wyndham, said he regretted that  he was not able to give any information in regard to Mafeking. He  reminded' the house that, oven if  the deaired relief of Mafeking has  occurred, intelligence of the event  could not arrive in England before  two, and perhaps three days*. The  latter part of Mr. Wyndluun's reply  is generally accepted as an intimation that the government expected  the relief of colonel Baden-Powell  and* his garrison would occur tit  about? this time.  Canadian Bank Clearings.  Niiw Yohk, May 18.���The bank  clearings for Canada were: Montreal, 815,208,193, a decrease of 3.9  per cent; Toronto, $10,395,935, an  increase of 19.3 percent; Winnipeg,  $2,409,411, an increase of 58.1 per  cent; Halifax, $1,333,111, an increase of 8.1 per cent; Hamilton,  $804,800, an increase of 18.5 per  cent; St. John, $593,90(5. a decrease  of 11.7 per cent; Vancouver, $850,-  240, an increase of 9.7 per cent:  Victoria, $702,130, an increase of  32.2 per cent.   The English Volunteers.  London, May 18.���in the house  of lords today the secretary of  state for war, the marquis of Lansdowne, introduced a bill to extend  the powers of the Volunteering  Act hy providing thafc volunteers  may be mobilized in tmy emergency  instead of only to repel actual invasion, and also to enable volunteers  to enter into an agreement making  them liable to be called on at any  time for home or foreign service.  Their Mission Here.  Frederick W. Hodson, Dominion  live stock commissioner, and Dr.  Duncan McEachran, chief veterinary inspector of the Dominion department of agriculture, are in the  city today. They will spend the  day here and then proceed on their  journey. Mr. Hodson to the Coast  and Dr. McEachran to the Boundary.  Mr. Hodson is known from one  side of the continent to the other  through his connection with the  live stock interests of the country.  For a number of years he was secretary of fche Dominion Live Stock  Breeders' Association, and in that  capacity had charge of the winter  fat stock show, an exhibition which  has grown from a small beginning  to dimensions making it one of the  leading affairs of the kind on this  side of the Atlantic. Quite recently Mr. Hodson was appointed  Dominion commissioner, the idea  being that he should do for Dominion cattle interests what he had  accomplished in Ontario. His visit  to British Columbia -will be brief on  this occasion, as the live stock  breeders of the maritime provinces  are clamoring for his assistance in  straightening out matters there.  The Atlantic breeders who were  raising pork for the packers there  struck an economical method of  feeding and gave tlieir hogs unlimited quantities of fish. The result  was pork absolutely valueless to  any one and calculated to ruin the  reputation of the packing houses.  Iu Manitoba and the Territories  Mr. Hodson'has organized a chain  of Farmers' Institutes, which have  been found invaluable in improving methods of agriculture and  stock raising in Ontario. Later he  hopes to extend this work iuto  British Columbia. Mr. Hodson's  mission is to ascertain wherein the  stock raising in this province can  be encouraged and assisted through  his department. - He is of opinion  thafc many parts of the province  could raise meat much superior to  the range cattle brought in several  hundred miles by rail, and that one  of the difficulties experienced up  to date has been the trouble in getting first-class bulls. He will not  go into these matters minutely this  trip but expects to return in September and spend a couple of  months hcie.  "Dr. McEachran is in the province  with a special commission. It has  been reported to the department of  agriculture thafc the stock iu this  district are infected with disease  aud he is to make a thorough inspection. Before returning east he  will go into the state of Washington.

Tlieir only loss was  three horses. The officers report  that they killed forty insurgents,  but the natives declare eighty were  killed.         HOW NELSON CELEBRATED  Belief of Mafeking.  The loyal citizens of Nelson celebrated the relief of Mafeking right  royally last night.   The arrival of  the relieving forces at Ladysmith  was the signal for au unprecedented  outburst of enthusiasm,  but   last  night's   celebration .established   a  new high water mark. For a couple  of hours the city rang with rounds  of cheers, the rattle of firecrackers  and the resounding boom of giant  bombs,   it seemed as though every  resident of the eity   was on the  c streets and that all the male portion at least was   cheering   with  might and main.  When the joyful news reached  the eity, W. A. Galliher, Charles  Hillyer, G. V. Holt, and A. G.  Gamble formed themselves into an  impromptu demonstration committee. They started out to raise  funds and in about an hour almost  $150 wjis raised in the business  portion of the city. The assistance  of the citizens' and municipal bands,  the fire brigade and the Nelson  rifle company was requisitioned  and cheerfully granted, a liberal  store of pyrotechnical supplies was  purchased and all arrangements  made for a hot time.  About 7 o'clock the citizens  started for the center of the city  and an hour ��� later Baker  street was uncomfortably jammed.  The bands arrived on the  scene and i gave a brief  entertainment, while the small boys  amused themselves, with firecrackers   and   infernal contrivances   of  Strike on the Butcher t Boy.  A big strike has been made on  the Butcher Boy mine, in Dead-  wood camp, says the Greenwood  Miner, John Mack, the general  manager of the-Butcher-Boy Gold  aud Copper Mining Company, returned to the city today from the  miwvand told a Times representative that the whole face of the  drift at the lOG-foofc level is iu solid  ore. Mr. Mack brought samples  down wifch him to have assayed. The  ore is typical Deadwood camp ore  that cannot be distinguished from  that of the Mother Lode, near  which property the Butcher Boy is  situated. There is a 100-foot shaft  on tJie property and from the bottom of the shaft a drift has been  run 30 feet west before fche oi e body  wa.s encountered. This drift will  be continued to cut through the oro  vein. The showing afc the Butcher  Boy is so encouraging that arrangements aro being made for the purchase of a hoist and pump of sufficient capacity to develop the property to the 1000-foot level.        t   ���  Fighting in the Philippines.  .Manila, .May 18.���In the Caterna  fight on the island of Samar on  May 1st about seven hundred of  fche enemy attacked the men of the  ���13rd infantry. The Americans  killed two hundred of the rebels  ;md by actual count only two  Americans were wounded. .Major  John Gilmore and a hundred men  of the 43rd regiment were - ambushed on May 6th near Pambugan,  Samar. Seventy-five    of     the  enemy wero killed, and there  were no American casualties.  The transport Lennox has returned  hcie after landing four troops of  the Eleventh cavalry to reinforce  colonel J. Franklin Bell. The troops,  major Hugh Sims commanding,  ���were landed  afc Legaspi aud  pro-  various descriptions. Afc 8:30 a  procession was formed afc fche corner of Baker and Ward sfcieefcs and  headed west. The rifle company  led, under the command of lieutenant Beer, followed by the Municipal  band. Then came the hose wagon,  surmounted by two large flags and  manned by the members of tJie department in their neat uniforms.  The Citizens' band "brought up fche  rear, followed by a volunteer corps  of raxoo musicians. __. A piper  marched behind tho hose wagOn  and blew lustily along the line of  march. The procession returned  on Baker street, marched north on  Ward to Vernon, and thence fco the  recreation grounds, where the balance of the program was carried  out.  While the processionists were  filling up fche seats in the grand  stand a miniature bombardment  jwith dynamite was-kejit up supplemented with a quantity of fire  crackers and bombs. An immense  bonfire was tlien touched off, and  in the glare of the fire the crowd  listened to patriotic speeches interlarded wifch appropriate selections  from the Municipal band.  Mayor Houston started the  speechmaking, in the course of  which he paid a neat tribute to the  valor of the British arms and especially to the share which the  Canadians had taken in upholding  the same.  J. Roderick Robertson, W, A.  Macdonald and W. A. Galliher followed in short speeches. At fche  close of the speechmaking cheers  wero given for the'queen, colonel  Baden-Powell and lord Roberts,  after which the assemblage dispersed.   '  ;   Japanese Immigration.  Washington, May 18.���In re-  pan sc to the senate resolution of  the 10th the secretary of the  treasury today sent the senate a  statement, from the commissioner  general of immigrafciou to the  United Sfcates of Japanese laborers.  From this statement ifc appears  thafc 2230 of these laborers arrived  in 1898, 3305 in 1899, and for ten  months during 1800. 7181. These  figures indicate only those who  have come direct to the United  Sfcates from Japan, but do not em-  brace these reaching this country  via Canada. How many there are  coming in this way the department  does nofc know, bufc the commi&iiou-  er expressed fche opinion thafc the  number is large. The opinion is  expressed that there will be a large  increase in the coming year.  CHINESE MARRIAGE TODAY  Talk With the Groom.  Quong Kay yesterday took out a  marriage license permitting him to  marry Ah Gee, and a Triijune representative went down to Chinatown to find out when the ceremony  was to take place, a Chinese wedding beiug an unique occurrence  in this district. Kwong Wing  Chung, the leading Chinese merchant was out, but a lounger in his  store vouchsafed the information  that they did not visit the parties  in question, but Wo Kee, the rival  merchant,~'might-know something ���  about it.  Mr. Kee was most affable, and  took the reporter round to where  the bride was, bidding the reporter  remain outside. Kee said something  and went away. Immediately  afterwards the lady poked out her  head and then shut the door most  emphatically in the face of the reporter. The glimpse showed that  she was a decided brunette, bufc  that her toilette was hardly in  shape to receive visitors.  Soon afterwards Kwong Kay  came out of the store. He is a tall,  well built, intelligent looking  Chinaman, and has been working  for the past six months as cook on  the Moyie. He said that his lady -  love was born in China, but came  from Victoria" last December.  There are three China women in  Nelson.  Asked where he was going to get-  married, he said in Church, but did  not know which. He also said he had  never married the lady in question  before.  Afterwards when he was drawn  aside, he became more communicative and intimated he was afraid of  a charivari.    He said :  "No wautee other Chinamen to  know. Makec too muchee noise."  He then confessed ���he had commissioned a friend to see the Rev.  H. S. Akehurst thio morning afc  9:30, to arrange for the marriage  ceremony some time'this morning.  "Me Olistian Chinaman," proudly  said Quong Kay, who seemed in a  suppressed state of high glee and  excitement over his new_and daring  venture in life.

David Higgins has had ample opportunity to secure the very reforms which he refers to in his address, but his career within the last  decade has not been marked with a  single effort made on behalf of any-  oue save "Dave Higgins." The advancement of himself has been his  only care. When the Turner government refused to recognize his  claims he conspired to overthrow  it, and it fell. When the Semlin  government likewise refused to advance him he joined forces with  ".Toe" Martin and contributed to  its defeat. In all fairness David  should either materially amend his  platform or retire from the contest.  Phkmirr Martin is a man of resource. He is the only politician  in British Columbia who has so arranged matters that himself aud  his secretaries can travel on C.P.R.  passes from point to point, and  lambaste the railway company as a  greedy monopoly from every platform in the province.  Tub dream of the Wilson Conservatives of forming a Conservative  government lias been shattered.  To accomplish this the Wilson faction required the co-operation of  the Turnerites, but the latter have  pledged themselves first to oppose  premier Martin and secondly to  primarily oppose the formation of  any purely Liberal or purely Conservative government. There are,  therefore, but two recognized parties in the field, the Martin (government) party and the Provincial  Party which went into opposition  upon the defeat of the Semlin government.  The  meu   who have set themselves up as the political dictators  of the province are. now  beginning  to count the cost.    It was comparatively easy for Charles Wilson of  Vancouver to read out of the Conservative party all who refused to  recognize his leadership: but when  this was done there was  little left  of   the   party.     Ifc was  easy   for  Joseph Martin to declare that British   Columbia    Liberalism    should  bear . the   Martin   brand;   bu fc  he  found ifc much more difficult to secure the consent of the Liberals to  be thus branded.    The policies of  Charles Wilson and Joseph Alartin  wer# dictated by personal ambition.  Bach imagined himself greater than  his party and presumed too much  upon his supposed hold upon the  parfcy.    The result has been that the  rank   and   file    of    both    parties  have by common  consent decided  that their Iirst mission-shall_be_to'  rid themselves of their   supposed  leaders.   There are in grates iu all  communities, but whole communities are seldom ungrateful.   Where  men have served their constituency  Avell in fche legislature, and at personal sacrifice, the tendency of the  majority of the community is to  recognize such service.     Thej'  do  not   take   kindly   to    instructions  from   headquarters  to  turn  down  such men simply because they -will  not agree  fco put thu aggrandisement of self-appointed leaders before the general welfare of the province.    A. truce has been called in  the" party-line   movement.   Before  committing themselves to the new  condition the people  require that  the field be cleared of Charles Wilson, Q. C, of Vancouver and Joseph  Martin of the same ciby.

The week's business among the  Nelson wholesalers has been a fair  average, with no features of unusual; interest. Business would  have been stimulated strongly by  the Sandon fire had it not been for  the great quantities of supplies  shipped in by relief committees at  various points in the district. It is  estimated that the Sandon merchants whose establishments escaped the fire have not aggregated  a hundred dollars worth of sales  hi nee the fire, so abundant were the  relief supplies.

A  striking moral victory, to be  followed, Ave trust, by an equally  striking  election  triumph for  the-  Provincial Party's policy, has been  gained at Victoria,  where Messrs.  Turner, McPhillips, Helmcken and  Hall���the  last of whom only is a  Liberal���have   all   pledged   themselves, if returned, to desist from  any attempt to form a provincial  government upon Dominion party  lines.    On this policy they will receive a very large amount of Liberal support, in fact, the support of  all the best Liberals as well as the  solid Conservative vote of .Victoria,  where   consequently   their   return  should be well assured, by reason,  not of past policy, but  of the present pledge to oppose in  toto the  self-regarding schemes of Mr. Martin, our provincial premier pro tern.,  by the grace of the Hon. T. R. Mclnnes^  Even Mr. McPhillips,'who first  hoped and intended to run as a  Conservative party-line line man,  and   thus   adopt   the   position   of  Mr. Wilson and his followers,  has' now become persuaded that the  cause of provincial good government  can best be assured by the united  action of all who oppose Mr. Martin, knowing the man and his more  than dubious political record. Under such circumstances the decision  just made at Victoria is exceptionally significant and of good omen.  And as we suggested at the outset of our remarks, the declaration  of present political, faith thus made,  strikingly A'indicates the position  adopted from the first by the Provincial Party.  Calgary Cow Punchers Win.  Two Montana cowboys, named  Limias and Austin, arrived in Gal-  gary the other day with a bunch oi"  100 horses, and made a bet of $100  that thoy could produce a broncho  that nobody iu Alberta could ride.  The bot was promptly taken and  the time fixed for Monday evening  at 7 o'clock in the race track. In  .order to furnish more entertainment for the public it was arranged  SLOCAN  RIDING  that the cowboys were to ride six  horses out of the Montana bunch.  Six   vicious   buckers   were selected    and    the    men     from     the  south     pronounced      them      the  worst of  their  kind ��� in  Montana.  One of the number, an outlaw, was  put forward as the man killer on  whom the $100 bet was to be decided, and the Yanks were confident no Canuck rider could stay on  his   back and live.    Lee Marshall  tackled him, rode him to a finish  and won the bet after a splendid  display of  western horsemanship.  During the outlaw's efforts to  dislodge his rider he threw himself  badly,  but without injuring  Marshal].       The Montana   riders- admitted that they had  fairly lost  their bet, and will go back with a  better opinion of Alberta broncho  twisters than they brought in with  them.  Cronje Enjoys Life.  General Cronje greatly enjoyed  his day's outing yesterday, says a  St. Helena dispatch.     He started  from Kent Cottage at 8  o'clock in  the morning, and drove round the  country, accompanied. by his \yife  and grandson, to Deadwood Camp,  where   service was conducted; by  the   Rev.  Mr. Albertyn, a Dutch  minister, who came as a passenger  with general Cronje from-the Cape.  The weather was very fine.   I travelled with the party as one of the  guard, .which was composed of two  mounted    St.    Helena   Volunteer  sharpshooters. :   General'-   Cronje  expressed   his    delight    at    each  change in the scenery on the way.  While he was passing the Dead-  wood Camp the prisoners lined the  fence and saluted him, raising their  hats   and   cheering.       Inside   the  gate everyone who had been captured   with   him   at    Paardeberg  gathered round to speak with him.  On the home journey after the ser  vice he called upon Mrs. Albertyn,  the minister's wife, and the party  had tea together, aud his residence  was reached at four in the afternoon. This was the first occasion  on which he had been outside the  grounds of Kent Cottage. His secretary and adjutant visited Mr. Albertyn on Saturday.  The Party Liner's Hymn.

(1) 1 urn in favor of an equitable redistribution  of the seals in the legislative assembly, based  Bcnonillj upon population, but -with due icgard  to the inteicsts and eiicumstnncus of outlying  and bparslev seltlrd districts.  (.')

(.t) I chilli do all in my power to as?isl nnd sup  pint the advancement and development of the  ii.1'iing interests ot the piovince. upon which Its  pinspcrit) N bo miilciiaily dependent.  (1) 1 believe in I lie principle of the eight-hour  law- and bluill permit no interference' with tho  law as it stands, and ,-.h,i!I In.sibt upon tho ruttm-  tion of the penalty clause.  (,j) 1 shall advocate a liberal expenditure upon  trunk romtnaiul trails in the various districts of  the province,, believing thnfr upon siich> expondi-  lui'c Ihe development of tho vas-t resources of  the country materially dcpcndfi. ���  (li) I shall advocate, and if elected assist in,  the enactment of lawn for tho proper ad jiiKlment  of disputes between labor and capital, by a well  digested 'and equitably arranged .syctcin of compulsory arbitration.  ("I 1 believe that'Asiatic and other cheap  labor is dot rimcntiil 1o the best interest* of British Columbia. I shall therefore advocate,its restriction ro far as it may be intra vires of provin- -  cial legit-liitioii, and shall assist in bringing .such  pressure to bear upon the federal government as  may induce that government to assist in the  work, and will most emphatically insist that no  such class of labor shall be employed upon any  public works undertaken by the pro\ ince or upon  such w-ork.s as, are subsidized by, or in any way  subject to the control of tho government.  (S) 1 believe that thcediicational system of the  province may be materially improved and nhall  frivo my heartiest assistance in bringing it to the  ligliest state of efficiency by the establishment of  normal schools an4 other instrumentalities that  may lend to the accomplishment of that object,  (flj I shall mlso advocate and assist in the development of the agricultural resources of the  province.  (lfi) I believe thai the moneys of the province  should bu e\.i>onded upon some broad and general  system which would ensure the greatest amount  ol bcnelit fiom hiich expenditure. In this riding  1 have endeavored to inaugurate such a.system  by hav ing the work upon roads and trails placed  under a responsible head, sn tlm( the nppropria.  tion, nriMixKtirily imidoquate undor oxi,sting cir-  uumslanous, might bu huncllumlly and economically expended, Tourw rospodtfully,  R.

The price asked for the property. $10,000, prevented a sale. Before building operations are  recommenced it is proposed to re-survey the  townsite and make the main street 70 feet wide.  One of the matters which has engrossed the attention of the council of the board  of trade during the past week is that of securing  government act ion ia tho direction of improving  the Kire Valley trail. During tho winter the  trail has got into bad shape between Killarney,  the port of call on Kootenay'lake, while from the  Vernon side the road is in good condition. The  settlors between Killarney and Mbnashcc took  the initiative, and the Nelson board strongly  backed tlieir petition for a wagon road, on the  ground that easy access to tbe Kettle Kiver district meant many dollars to Nelson's wholesalers.  It is thought that the prospect of immediate action isexco lent.  At the Methodist conference  which closed this week at Now Westminster, tho  clergymen accepted iin invitation to meet in  Nelson next year. The conference brings together annually upwards of 100 ministers and  laymen from every part of the province and the  decision to hold the conference inland is something of an innovation. Tho action of tho conference i.s a tribute to Nelson's growing reputation as the hub of the district.  The Houston committee  room in  the Hume building ou Vernon street is the  headquarters of all Provincial Party men while  in the city.   The crowd is largo nightly.  The biograph entertainment   in  the opera house will no doubt prove a drawing  card during the Iirst four evenings of next week.  The performance is given under the auspices of  the governor.goneral, and has given great satisfaction, giving ns it does a two hours' visit to the  troops in rioutli Africa and glimpses of the most-  celebrated oflicers.

Nelson Opera House  ONE NIGHT ONLY  SaWay, 19  J. G. Stutt's  Theatre  Company  A BABY INSTANTLY KILLED  Father Went Insane.  At 7:20 o'clock last night an infant daughter of A. Maslonka, the  Hall street shoemaker, was almost  instantly killed. A heavy wagon  box fell on the child's head crushing the skull in such ii manner that  death ensued within a few moments.  Maslonka's two eldest children  were playing at the rear of the  house and the baby was in their  charge. A heavy wagon box,  standing on a packing case, had  been used by the children as a  playhouse for weeks and no  danger was apprehended. Last  night the wagon box became overbalanced and fell  to the. ground. The infant was just  beneath and the falling box crushed  her head. She died before medical  assistance could be summoned.  When Maslouka heard of the fatality he became temporarily insane.  Rushing out he struck one of the  children a heavy blow aud used  threatening language. Chief Jarvis  was apprised of the accident and  immediately proceeded to Maslom  ka's home, where he succeeded in  pacifying the distracted parent.  The coroner was notified and  placed in possession of the facts,  lie deemed an inquest unnecessary.  Refrigerators  Prices from $10 to $30  LAWRENCE HARDWARE COMPANY  KIRKPATRICK  & WILSON.
