 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  xtnz  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  KELSON: THURSDAY MORNING  MAY 31  J900.  PRICE EIYE  GENTS  PRETORIA NOW ABANDONED  Boers Scattered.  London, May 31..���-3 a.m.���Yes:  torday at noon the British were  only about two hours' inarch from  Fretoria and the Boer military  forces had abandonedthe city. This  intelligence comes from the Renter  Hgeney at the Transvaal capital  and from the earl of Rosslyn in a  press dispatch. Tiie two messages  1 :l't about the same time. At 2  o'clock this morning the war oflice  had received no news from lord  Roberts which the officials would  make public but it is assumed that  'the press advices are correct. Most  of the Loudon morning papers,  /through the courtesy of the Daily  Mail, print lord Rosslyn's dispatch  and comment upon it treating the  Avar as ended. Some of the more  cautious critics think that guerrilla  warfare is likely to be carried on  for some time in various parts of the  conquered country. Although the  Boer forces are dissolving, lord  rioberts apparently has not yet  taken any considerable quantities  of artillery, arms or stores. Large  bodies of Boers must still be .some-"  where in the field.  ���Watervalhoven or Wafcerfall-  hoven is-130 miles due east of Pretoria on the Delagoa Bay railway.  J fc.-should not be confused with  Waterval, ten miles north, of .Pretoria, where the British 'prisoners  are. Watervalhoven is a small  place in a mountainous country.  The seat of the Boer government,  ���������'what there is left of it, will probably be Lydenburg.to the north. A  dispatch from Lorenzo . Marquez,  ���"������'���dated-Wednesday, says:  "Commandant Kraus chas surrendered Johannesburg to lord  Roberts. By tonight's traiu from  Pretoria, arrived a few Greeks Avho  ^iiythey were told to leave Pretoria on Tuesday. They affirm that  the traiu in which they left was  hliellSU tiy the British and half of  (.he train was cut off. The remainder steamed away. This'incident probably occurred afc Elauds-  i.mteiu^ Junction. Passengers from  IVotoria assert that the town is  utterly demoralized. There is a  mad rush for the coast. Five  1 r.iiu loads of fugitives arc expected  here tonight."'  The Times says this morning:  '���The war is practically over. By  this time the British flag is flying  in Pretoria. Mr. Kruger luis Hod  and ere this is half way fco Delagoa  Bsiy. Mr. Hay, sou of Ghe United  ���Scatcfa secretary of state, who holds  tha office of American consul at  I Vetoria. and who in that capacity  took charge of our interests,-  thoughtfully insisted on a special  stop for safeguarding the large  n unber of British prisoners."  section of the committee was averse  to accepting it, but'the point,When  put to a division was carried in  favor of the acceptance, although  only by a single vote: "It is difficult to appreciate the attitude  taken by the dissentients," says the  Daily Express, "but the satisfaction will be general that the duke  has seen lit to terminate his connection with a Londou club of this  high character, in which he could  no longer be persona grata, and  that the extreme measure of expulsion so likely to cause continental complications has been  avoided." -   PRETORIA AWAITS CAPTURE  ,."       No Eesistance.  London, May 31���2 a. m.���The  Daily Mail publishes the following  dispatch from the earl of Rosslyn,  who was a prisoner at Pretoria, and  who, as a civilian, appears to have  been, released:  "Pretoria, Wednesday, May 30,  ���11:40 a. m.���Pretoria will be occupied in about two hours, without  resistance. The president has gone  to Watervallboven. The burgomaster, De Sousa, is authorized to  receive the British. He, with an  influential committee of -citizens,:  including chief justice Gregorowskii  has been appointed to preserve life  and property during the interregnum. Everything: is quiet, but  crowds are waiting expectantly in  the church square for the arrival of,  the British.  "Fearing a possible disturbance  and bloodshed among the prisoners  of war at Wafcervall, United States  consul Hay and Mr. Leightwood insisted upon twenty officers being  liberated on parole to go to the  meu. Their action cannot be too  highly praised. I was permitted to  accompany the officers. Everything was quiet."  DECISIONS OF FULL COURT  All Appeals Allowed.  Three more appeals of Nelson  cases were decided by the supreme  court yesterday, and in each case  Mr. justice Martin's judgment was  reversed. S. S. Taylor, Q.C., represented tho appellants in each case.  Criitchfield v. Harbottle, was a  case in which.the defendant bought  a mineral claim from a third party,  aud, before he registered his bill of  sale, the vendor's free miner's  license ran out. Criitchfield re-  staked the claim, and brought  action to clear his title, and the full  court upheld his claim. "Mr, Duff  appeared for the respondent.  The next case was Oppenheimer vs  Brackman & Ker, in which the  plaintiff sued for $1400 for hay delivered. The defendants paid the  money into court and had a big  counter claim for damages for  breach of contract, losing here but  winning on appeal yesterday.  Charles Wilson, Q. C, and R. S.  Lennie appeared for the respondents.  The full court also quashed Ker's  appeal in the case of Ker vs. Oddfellows, in which the plaintiff  claimed for payment above the contract price for erecting the Oddfellows' block on the ground that  his work was - delayed by the defendant owners until winter set  in, thus making the work more expensive than if it had been done in  summer as agreed upou. Ker was  granted $1900 damages. Charles  Wilson, Q. C, and R. S. Lennie appeared for the respondents.  bable engagement. "A battery was  sent to the frontier. �� The ^Lorenzo  Marquez correspondent of the  Times says: "It" Would not be surprising if a large proportion of the  rebel Dutch sought temporary refuge on Portuguese territory. Although the authorities here are reticent, they are not Wind to such a  possibility. It is reported that a  special train from Pretoria with  fugitives was derailed on the  Transvaal side of Komatipoort, a  number of passengers being killed  or injured. TheBritish authorities  at Buluwayo think the Boei's will  retire into southern Rhodesia.  PRINCE WINS DERBY AGAIN  UTRECHT HAS BEEN TAKEN  Buller in Transvaal.

The  deaths have increased 40 per cent in  three days. In the Karia district  there have been 1330 deaths in  seven days.

In  Balapiu* State" on the fiist day  there was one death, on the  second there-was eighty-four and  on the third upwards of 400.  It is thought infection was due to  the fact fchat the first death was  near the only available water sup-  i>Iy. The germs were thus carried  all over the camp.  Eejoicing in Ottawa.

London, May 30.���The Naval Annua], published at Portsmouth, in  comparing the navies of the woild,  estimates that at the close of the  year the strength in complete battleships will probably be Great  Britain 47, Prance 34, and Prussia  17, but ic is added that Great  Britain's preponderance in modern  powerful vessels will probably make  her navy more than equal to the  combined French and German  navies.  Ties the Eecord.  London, May 30.���After a couple  of preliminary races, the second of  which was .won by Doris, with  Sloan up, the way was cleared r for  the Derby. There were fourteen  sta rters. The -. bebfcing - previous" to  the start .was Diamond Jubilee 0 to  4, Simon Dale 100 to 6, and Disguise  II. 8 to 1 against. Chevening made  most of the running to the straight,  where Disguise drew to the front,  but gave way to Diamond Jubilee  who, stalling off the challenge of  Simon Dale, won by half a length  amidst cheers. A length separated  second and third horses. Bona  Rosa was fourth.  The present generation will never  forget the scene when the prince of  Wales' Persimmon captured the  blue ribbon of the turf, bufc today's  demonstration when Persimmon's  own brother' gave the prince of  Wales a second Derby was almost  its equal. 'For a moment, within  fifty .yards of the post, Simon  Dale's wonderful stride seemed fco  threaten the favorite's chances.  His head reached Diamond Jubilee's  girth, but the latter's splendid form  enabled Jum-to maintain- a-short  half length lead until in the midst  of mighty cheers he passed the post  a winner.  The crowd then went wild wifch  cheering. Hats, flags, sticks, etc.  flew in the air as the princess of  Wales stood up in the Royal box  smiling her acknowledgement, of  the applause, while the prince of  Wales and lord William Beresford  pressed forward to lead the winner  to the enclosure. Then the little  jockey Jones was taken to the  ���Royal box and, amid renewed cheers  from the crowd, received the personal congratulations from the  princess.  Diamond Jubilee's time was 2:42.  This equals Persimmon's time,  which is the record for the Derby.  The prince of Wales this evening  gave the customary dinner party to  members of the Jockey Club. His  guests included the duke of Con-  naught, the duke of York, the duke  of Cambridge, prince Christian, the  duke of Devonshire, the duke of  Portland and earl Cadogan.  The three first horses were bred  as follows: Diamond Jubilee, by Sfc.  Simon oufc of Perdita II.: Simon  Dale, by St. Simon out of fsmay;  Disguise IL, by Domino out of  Bonnie Gal.  BOXER  RISING  SPREADING  Many Fresh Atrocities.-  Pekin, May 29.���From all parts  of the surrounding country news is  constantly arriving of fresh atrocities committed by the Boxers. Three  Christian families were massacred  at Than Tai Yieng, sixty miles  from Pekin on May '21st, and only  two escaped.  A representative of the Associated  Press visited Fang Tai this morning  and found the place' occupied by a  battalion of troops. The whole railroad station, shops and locomotive  sheds were gutted and-much rolling  stock was destroyed; including the  imperial palace car. Large godowns  (Chinese warehouses) , full of valuable merchandise were burned after  having been looted by rioters. The  damage done is estimated at half a  million taels. The' neighboring  villages seem to have joined in the  attack, showing. that the rising  against the government is not confined to the Boxers.. Eight rioters  who were captured,will be decapitated.  Riding through the south gate of  Pekin, the correspondent found the  road inside the walls lined wifch  troops, who greeted the traveller  and his party to a fusilade of  stones. d  The, whole country is Seething  with excitement and it Is" hard "to  foretell the course of events.

MONEY STARTS TO COME IN  Dominion Day Sports.  The committee in  charge of the0  Dominion Day celebration are nofc  letting the grass grow under their  feet, and tlieir efforts are already  meeting with great success.     A. H.  Buchanan and G. V. Holt were oufc  canvassing subscriptions yesterday  and by the evening, although the -  rounds were   not half  completed,  they had succeeded in getting $2000  promised,including the donation by  city council. An effort will be made  to see the rest of the business houses  today, and tomorrow general subscription lists will be opened, when  any contribution from 50 cents up  will be accepted.   Subscription lists  will be opened at each of the banks  and   in The   Tribune and Miner .  newspaper offices. Every one should   .  make   up his mind to contribute  what he can afford, and none need'  be ashamed because his donation  may be small.  The aquatic committee received  a telegram yesterday from G. F.  Gait of Winnipeg, saying the boat  club there would have no trouble in .  sending a four-oared crew. A. H.  Buchanan also heard from Vancouver, yesterday. The ' Vancouver,  club thinks it will be able to send a  crew, and has written Victoria  with the idea of their sending one  also. Mr. Buchanan acquainted"  the Vancouver club by wire last  night with the fact that the Win-  nipeggers will be here.  Another and a novel attraction is -  promised at this year's celebration,  namely "The relief of Bogustown."  The idea is  to  get the Kaslo, and  possibly   the    Rossland    company-  over  here.    There  would - then  be-  considerably over a hundied men  under arms, wifch two, if not three,  Maxims, and an exciting sham light  should be the result.    It will  be a\  chance for the local militia  officers  to display their genius for strategy  and   tactics,' and  for the men to  show their keenness and the efli-    *  ciency of their training.'

So keen was the old gentleman's  disappointment  that he eA'en quarrels with his old friend John Houston, and accuses him of classifying  as Provincial Party supporters men  who are not in sympathy with that  party.   The first objection taken to  Tura Triuunr's classification is the  inclusion   of   Ralph   Smith.    It  is  only   fair   to   assume that Ralph  Smith   knows   where-   he   himself  stands.    His own statement is that  he is a labor man first,  and after  that a Provincial Party man; that  in every constituency where  there  is no straight labor man in the field  his support will go to the Provincial  Party candidate.    Ralph Smith is  too able a man to take no part in  the next legislature,  therefore he  will be found   working = with  the  Provincial Party.  The Miner's next  objection  is  the   inclusion  of Mr.  Munro.    The Miner  states that Mr.  Munro is a Martin candidate.   This,  to say the least, is a reflection upon  A. S. Vedder, who is admitted as  the Marti 11 candidate in Chilliwack,  with   Munro   as  Provincial Party  and Ashwell as  Conservative.    As  to Mr. Murphy in West Yale Tub  Tribune  may   be   in   error,  even  though it still refuses to accept the  Minor's statement that Mr. Murphy  is an Independent-Liberal, who is  in sympathy with the AVilson Conservatives aud pledged   to  Conservative    government.   As   to    Sir.  Wells in North East Kootenay, and  Mr. Fernie in South East Kootenay,  they  are   classified   as   Provincial  Party men because their sympathies  are with that party as against the  other two parties, and   the same  may be said of Mr. Neill in Alberni.  The editor of the Miner, should not  quarrel wifch facts simply because  they are not to his liking.  Big Boundary Mines.  In   the   Boundary   country   the  City of Paris has from  20 to 25  teams hauling ore to the Graves  smelter.    The  Knob  Hill  aud  the  Ironsides ore bins are filled and are  only awaiting the completion of the  O. J'. R. spur to ship to the smelter  at Grand Porks.   The daily output  from these two mines* is 200 tons of  ore per day.   The B. C. will commence ^stoping   ore   iu   about 'ten  days, and,then will probably ship  ] 00 tons per day to the Trail smelter.  The   Mother    Lodo   is   preparing  to    stope    from    the   300    level  and expects   to   have   its  smelter  completed by the end, of Oefcob'er.  On  the It. Bell work will be resumed next week under the management   of   Jack    Hanley.     The  Great Hopes, owned  by Larsen &  (ireenough, will start work  on  the  1st of June.   This ivas one of the  first    properties    located    in   the  Greenwood ^district!     Sonae~yearsT  ago an arastara was worked on its  ore, but the free milling  ore gave  out a few feet from  the surface,  and changed to a sulphide.   Larsen  &   Greenou/rh   paid   $12,000 cash,  which was the biggest price paid  for   a   property up to that time,  1803. I<\ II.

"McCoy wins!" shouted referee  llogau. In an instant the hall was  a pandemonium. ''What do you  mean ?" said Ryan, in amazement.  Hogan said nothing, but climbed  through the ropes. "iTou're a  robber I" shouted Rjran. Hogan  turned around, and just as he did  so Ryan swung his loft to Hogan's  face. Quick as a flash Hogan returned the compliment with a blow  on Tommy's nose.

Themosfc undisputed record among  (owns   is   held    by    lrudddrsfield,  Yorkshire.    Ifc owns ifcsolf.    Beginning life in a model dwelling owned  hy the town, the  young  workman  goes  to  his   work  in  a municipal  tram.    He  gets  his gas or electric  light from the city; his wife hires  her gas  stove from the cifcy, -purchases her provisions from the cifcy  market, and sends the week's wash-  ing'to the municipal washerwoman.  Their   children   play   in   tho   city  parks, their dust-bin is  cleared out  hy the town  authorities, and tlieir  letters are collected by a tram, the  property.of the town.    If they are  ill they are l-emoved  to the town  hospital;   if  they   are  unlucky in  financial matters they find a home  in' the   municipal   lodging   house;  -jind  when  they die, rich or  poor,  thoy are buried by the  town in a  ���cemetery owned by the town.  Bristol, says Answers, stands  ���alone in the number of its charitable institutions taking into consideration the number of its inhabitants. The donations to the Mul-  ���ler Orphanage far exceed a million  and a half. It is the boast of Bristol's inhabitants that they have  ���been the donors of the greater  .���amount of the above sum.  On the other hand, the city of  Aitena, in Italy, claims the undisputed record' of having no 'man.  aiijoug its inhabitants who has nofc  <'ifc!ier committed murder or tried  <o do so. For two centuries the  Italian authorities have ignored its  existence and when any criminal  succeeds in escaping to Artena he  ii lejt alone. As such wayfarers  1i each the town' they a?'c asked  what dime they have committed,  unci should they not be able to give  M-'ty clear" proof-thafc they have'  i ou My committed some offence in  t lie eyes of the law they are not al-  hnved to enter. Some criminal,  seeing the humorous, side of this,  surreptitiously posted the following: "Ifc is easier for a camel to  pa-;s through tho eye of a needle  than for an innocent man to enter  Arcena."  A recent traveller in Bavaria  iv cites : "We entered fche town of  >" u rem burg. !t is the birthplace of  i,he doll/' The archives say fchat  the first dolls which were made  alter the likeness of men were  mado ia Nuremburg sixteen hundred years ago. From that date to  ith1. present clay every workingman,  woman and child,, save' those who  ���cater to fche wants of the inhabitants, spends life making dolls.  The whole town lives upon dolls,  rates and every kind of tax being  pjid by the price of dolly freedom.  Oyer thirty million dolls are ex-  jjorted yearly.  There are two towns in Switzerland holding undisputed records.  Tlio municipal authorities of Braun-  Singen are so rich thac nofc only do  they require the inhabitants to  ]wj- no rates or taxes, but supply  I'i oo grazing ground to every family  -I'oi* one cow. Even hero their gon-  vrosity finds not enough scope, and  January 2nd every year they pre-  Mjiifc every icsidesifc with twopence, a cartload of wood, and six  printed invitation ca.rcK which fche  recipient is requested to send to  any friends of unblemished character liviug elsewhere, asking them  io pack up their goods aud come  ami live in Braunlingen. If they  accept the invitation, and their  note to that effect is received  among the first two hundred, the  town pays for their journey and  auy extras up to tho sum of three  pounds. The money is raised from  the rents of the houses which were  foimerly owned by a Swiss nobleman, whose pet object was to build  a town.  Every inhabitant of tho town of  Finmgen has been a waiter, or is  the child of a waiter being trained  by his parents for thac profession.  The population numbers 8000 odd,  and the local paper, after giving the  important news of the world in  three-line paiagiaphs, is given up  entirely to the doings in the waiter  ^v'oild. Thus, in one of the later  issues, the rescue of the Kimberley  gui-iison by general French was  lecordcd thus; ''British general  Fi each has relieved Kimberley. The  -war continues."

But when auy very important  subject is mooted, a" general council  of all the male inhabitants is summoned. While such a council was  recently sitting, a traveler who  happened to be passing through the  town put his head iu afc the door.  The whole assembly was awaiting in  silence the yearly financial announcement. Suddenly the traveler  called out "Waiter!" In a moment  the whole parliament rose as one  man, shouted "Coming, sir!" and  then, after Avaiting some ten minutes, sauntered toward the door.

C, has been interviewed by the Toronto Globe on  the labor situation here. After describing the troubles and their satisfactory settlement, the interview  continues:   ,      ��  "As a result of my visit as well as  extensive reading," said Mr. Clute  in  reply to a further question, "I  have great faith in conciliation as  a method of settling labor disputes.  I think it is the only reasonable  and business   way.   In   a   matter  where the business of the world  may be  said  to involve the question Of capital and labor it is extra- ���  ordinary that justat the point where  differences arise, and always must  arise, that there should have been  no greater effort made to treat such  differences upon  a business basis,  and by permitting the managers of  capital and the recognized leaders  of  labor to   meet and try to adjust these differences.   I believe it  to be entirely practicable, and I do  not regard it as an assumption upon the part of labor at all unreasonable that they should be permitted  to present their grievances through  meu  capable of doing so.    Capital  combines    and    is    combining   in  greater volume from day to day.  Capital' and labor must  unite   ia  production.      Is    it   unreasonable  chat while capital places its interests iu fche hands of its ablest men  or is supposed to do so that labor  should be allowed to do tho same?"  "What chances do you think an  individual worker has  got  to  get  any improvement of his  condition  if he piesonts his case individually?"  was a^ked.  laud which, were the title clear,  would be worth $30,000,000 to $50,-  000,000. In 1883 Streetor and his  wife were stranded on a little sandbar a few yards from the shore at  the foot of Superior street. The  spot was down on the maps, and  the doughty navigator laid claim  to the land and declared his right  as being the whole population to  elect himself to all offices which he,  in framing a constitution, deemed  the territory in need of. As years  passed the dumping of all sorts of  refuse and the earth washed up by  the lake formed a large tract, and  captain Streetor became a man of  importance.; With, his importance  ana" the increased value of "the  land his trouble began. The  tract became connected with the  shore and the owners of the adjoining property resented the presence  of Streetor. They carried.the matter into court. The supreme court  of the United States ; decided that  the land was within the jurisdiction of Illinois. Streetor thereupon  offered the district to the Federal  government. A year ago he organized under the name of the  "District of Lake Michigan ��� Territorial Government" and elected  himself chief justice; and; to other  offices of importance.  The police, however, descended  upon him and his army of about 50  men, and since then, up to today,  the captain had lived in another  part of the town, r Preparations to  retake possession were ��� made with  great secrecy and not until dawn  today were the police aware of the  invasion. ���  At 2:30 this afternoon three hundred officers of the city, headed by  chief Kipley, every man bearing a  repeating rifle, marched from East  Chicago avenue station to the foot  of Superior street. In the entrenchments were aboufc seventy men  armed with rifles and two gatling  guns. Sheriff Magorstad went with  the chief of police aud it was  planned that in case of refusal to  surrender the sheriff should immediately swear in 300 policemen as  deputies and again demand the  surrender of Streetor's foi ces on the  ground of riot and disorderly conduct and arrest the occupants of  the fort regardless of cost. A fire-  boat with a gatling gun aboard was  despatched up Lake Michigan to  make a demonstration from that  side and to cut off the escape of  Streetor's men by means of a yacht.

After  hoisting a United States flag,  Stieetor's men threw up entrenchments and successfully resisted all  efforts of the police to ovicfc them  from the premises. One small  parfcy of city park officials, bent ou  finding out who was encroaching  on their ground, were quickly put  to night by a volley fired from behind the trenches. Reuben Alanley,  aged 1., received one of the shots  ill the knee. A carriage horse belonging to one of the park officials  was shot dead. A riot alarm was  turned in and ',.0 policemen, heavily  armed, hurried to the scene. The  officer in command saw the -formid-  able and threatening display of  artillery pointed his way over  entrenchments, and he ordered a  hasty retreat.  Chief of police Kipley favored  attacking and capturing the entrenched men at any cost, but  finally decided to await the decision  of the cifcy law department as to  the legality of attack on Streetor's  force. Meanwhile he ordered measures to be taken for what fche police  department believed to be the  greatest battle between police and  opposing forces since the memorable  Ilaymarkefc riot.  Captain Streetor elaimsto owa the  To i he Ki.rcToits ck i hi: Nnison Hiding :  Gentlemen���As the unanimous choice of a duly  constituted convention of the snppoitci* of tho  Provincial Tarty in the Xelson iidmg, I am be  foie j on as a candidate for representative of the"'  Nelson riding m the ne>ft prpvmcial legislatuie.  In this connection I desno to solicit jour votes  and influence in iny behalf. Believing that  every man aspmng for inembeiship .should place  fluniselfon iceaidon the main issues I take this  oppoi tim.lt> of stating that I a��n m favor of leg-is  l<i tion upon the following lines ���  1. Representation m the.legislative assembly  should be based on population, with such modifications as w ill gn e bparsclj settled dibti icfcs pi o-  pottmnalch l.uger icpicsentationthaii qitiosand  thickly settled farming districts.  2. All legislation should bo general, and not  special. A beginning has been made in this  direction by the enactment of laws under -winch  cities can be incorporated, co-parties formed,  and water records obtaxnpd. These should be  added to by tlio passage of a gcneial iftilwaj m-  coi nor.ition act, and one giving municipilitiea  the same pov\ era to jequire water records as are  now accorded pi iv ale corpora tions.  i. Public lands should be kept foi nefcual settlement, midland sub-idles bhould not be giantcd  to aid the building of railways fluid ^whon built  aie owned by coiporations.  4. Govei nment ownership of railways is no  moie a theoiy than municipal ovvnciship of  public utilities. Both have been hied and found  to woik for tho public good when capably mid  honestly managed ; but in making a commencement in government ownoifehip of railways in  tins piovince, a section should be selected in  which the government would have a fiee hand,  and not m hection? wheie competition would be  niet.      i  5.* Prevention of tho landing in this province  pf Chinese and Japanese laboiers, and the discouragement of the employment of those ahendy-  here by overv fair means possible.  ii. Positive, notnujcntive, Uws should onlj be  passed. If the principle of a law is gortl, the  law should be effecth o. The eighr-houi tl ly for  men working undei ground in metallifeious, mines  is now generally accepted an legislation in the  right ducction._ I would oppose nny-legislatfon  that would repeal tlie penalty clause, oi in any  other viiiy impair the eflcctivene&s of the law hb  it now stands  7. To cn e immediate < llect. In legislation, to  a resolution similar to that known astlioJIuloch  le&olution, lecenlly paired l>y the Dominion  House of Commons, which provides for the payment of fair wages on public woiks or woiks  aided by gov eminent subsidies. All contiactons  doing work for either the province Or for municipalities should be icquhcd to pay labor the rate  ot via{jen ruling In tho municipality- or iieighboi  hood in whicli the work is Lobe done, the num  hoi of hours to constitute a day on all snob woik  tobcfKedbv statute.  8. Com U> have been established in w h.cii infill iduuls and coi potations cue compelled to  nettle disputes, however trivial, diipiitos that  seldom have any bearing on the genei.il piospet  ity of thacommsmitj in which the disputants 10*  side; and court-, should ho established foi the  coinpuNmv settlement of disputes between (lie  icprosortnlfve* of capital nml laboi, disputes  that too ol ten aio fan each ing in their damaging  ettect-s on the gencial piospeiily of whole communities and districts  !). Mining for tho precious metals is the one in-  dustiy which is benefiting, duectly or indiicrlh,  every community in the province, and legislation  nlleetiijg the industry, in the "way of taxation,  should be based on the treatment and umnulac-  tute within the province of the piodnot of .the  mines, rather than on the output of the mines as  at piesent.  10, The establishment of u bin can, \\ ilh head-  nuartcis in Bntixh Columbia and not in Great  Hiituin, lt> systematically advertise all the  natmal lesourccs and scenic attiactions of the  pnn mce  11, Oignni/cdlmunicipalihes should be given  the control of their public schools, leaving to the  proxinco the <aie of public schools in unoigan-  i/ed distiicts and the mamlcn..iice of jionmil and  technical schools.  12, Trunk loads and trails should bo Diiilt nnd  maintained at public expense, and the co^t of  mads and trails to isolated mines nnd communities should be boino in part by the piovince.  13, Ueneial hospitals ��hould bo undei government control, and the government sbould help  maintain physicians in spaisely settled sections  of the province.  14, The government in power should make  ofilcial announcement, for n reasonable time bo-  toie the legislative assembly meets, of all pio  nosed legislation. Weie (his done theie would  be fevver hastih passed lawn, laws which aie too  often against the public interest.  All ot whu-h is lespcctfuliy submitted for your  conmdciation.   JOHN  HOUSTON  A. R.

PROVINCIAL  LAND SURVEYOR  To the Electors of the Slocan Hiding:  Gkn i i* mi.v���With the dissolution of the legis  lativc assemblv, the duty again devolves upon  the electors of the .Slocan iiding to choose a mem  bci to icpicscnt them in the pioviucial legislature.  It is my intention to become a candidate at the  forthcoming election and with full conlldencc in  the icsulc 1 Again respectfully solicit the suf-  " lie riding.  patdonable satisfaction  have eonscrv cd the in  tercstsof the tiding and sought to meel local ic-  quirements so fai as piacticab'cl hav e carno=tly  endeavored to foi ward legislation m the intci c>ts  of the whole provin< c, and^ucli as would tend  towaid its material dev clopmcnl.  Constant in attendance at the sessions of the  legislatuio. I hav c been watchful that no v otc of  mine should be wanting foi any measure beneficial to my constituents, oi the province as a  whole; nor have 1 been neglectful of the inter  ests of the wagecarnci, but have, in some dc  grce at least, been instrumental in placing their  fair demands amongst the principles to be adv o  cited by a great political paity.  It is well pei  haps that 1 should briefly Htate some of the pnn-  ciplcs which I hav c adv ocatcd and shall continue  to advocate until they aie nicoiporatediii piov in  cial legislation.  (1) lam in favor of an equitable redistribution  of the seats in the legislative assembly, based  gonorally upon population, but with due lcgard  to the intoiests and circumstances of outlying  and sparsley settled distiicts  (2) I shall advocate the government owneislnp  of lailways and other public finnchiscs so far a,-,  may bo practicable, and a general enactment  by which companies desiring to construct rail  ways may bo incoipoiatcd without special legislation, and that railways bonuscd by the piov  incc may be under government contiol ns to  their tatcs and subject to puiehasc at gov cm  merit option.  (!f) I shall do all m my pow ci to assist nnd bud  poit the advancement and development of tiie  mining intoiests of the piovince, upon which its  prosperity is so maicnaily dependent.  (1) I believe m the piinciplo of the eighHiour  law and shall pennit no mteiferenco with the  law as it stands, and shall insist upon the retention of tho penalty clause  (5) I shall adv ocate a liberal expendituic upon  tmnk roads and tiailsintho vaiious districts of  the prov incc, behev mg that upon such expenditure the development of the vast lesourccs ol  tho country mateiially depends  (6) I shall advocate, and if elected n-,sist in,  the enactment of la vv s foi Ihc piopcradjnsuuent  of disputes between labol andcupit.'I, by.i well  digested and equitably ai ranged system of compulsory arlntiiilion.  (7) I believe that Asiatic nnd other cheap  labor is detumental to the bcsl,ii!tei ests of Biitish Columln*. I shall thcicfore advocate its re  stncuon so far as it may bo.uiti a v Ires of prov ni-  cial legislation, and sluill assist in lttlngiug such  pressure to bear upon the ledciui governmental  may induce tint government to assist m the  woik. md -wilt most emphatically insist (hit no  such class ot labor shall be employed upon any  public works uiulert xkenbv the piovince oi upon  such woiks ii aie -aibsidi/ed by.oi many \iny  subject to the control of the govei nment.  (S) I believe that Ihecducational sy stem of the  prov ince may be materially iinpi ov ed and shall  give my heartiest assistance m bringing it to the  highest state of etlleioncybj the establishment of  normal schools and olhei liisfiumcntahtios that  may tend to the accomplishment, of that obiea.  (0) I shall also advocate and assist iu the do  velopment of the ngiictiliin.nl resouiccs OJ (lie  proMiice.  (in) I believe that the monev s of I he pi ov nice  should be expended upon some broad ami general  system winch would ensuio the greatest amount  of benefit,from such expenditure In this tiding  I have emleavoicd to inaugurate such a sv stem  by hav ing tho work upon roads .md tisiils placed  underaiesponsiblf head, so Unit the nppiopua  tion, necessanly inadequate under existing cu-  cumstanccs, might bo neneHcially and economically cepended.   ,       Voinsicspectfully,  R.

A. Galliher  called the gathering to order fully  300 stalwart supporters of candidate Houston were crowded into  the rooms, and, from the opening to  the close, the enthusiasm was unbounded. After the opening address by tho chair James AVilk?,  secretary of the Nelson Miners'  Union, was called upon and received  a hearty reception. He made a  very spirited speech, in the course  of which he dwelt upon the fact  that throughout the whole of the  Nelson and Slocan ridings the candidates, John Houston and It. P.  Green, were.the recognized and endorsed champions of the cause of  organized labor. They were men  who had proven their friendship  for the wage earners before they  became candidates for public oflice,  and who while iu oflice had given  every proof of their sincerity. They  were candidates who were the logical choice of the labor party, and  the wage earners of the two ridings  were determined to accord them  both such supporc as would result  in returning them to the next legislature as tho representatives of  their respective ridings.  li. F. Green, the Provincial Party  candidate in the Slocan riding, was  then called upon and was received  with prolonged applause. He paid  a very neat tribute to candidate  Houston, whom he said he had  known personally for over twelve  years, during the whole of which  time he had advocated the cause of  men who earned their livelihood by  their day's labor. lie was also a  man whom tho electors of Nelson  could rely upon as a creditable representative, and a man whom he  would be pleased to woik with in  the next legislature. As to the result of Mr. Houston's candidature,  Mr. Greeu said he had uo more  doubt than he had of his own. The  only danger was in taking the result for granted. He urged each  elector present to bring but one  voter to the poll. This  ^ would roll up a vote which the  combined votes of the other two  candidates would not equal. He  dwelt upon the similarity of the  contest in the two ridings and said  ESTABLISHED 1892  H.   BYERS  &  CO.

Among  other matters he mentioned that  the men who were the pioneers in  the business and mining interests of  the community were all supporting  him in his candidature. They were  the men who knew him best, and it  was a compliment to any man that  those who were best acquainted  with him should, without exception,'  be among his warmest supporters.  It was a fitting answerT to the  attacks which were made upon him,  and showed conclusively that he  could not be as bad as his enemies  painted him. Mr. Houston then  referred to the most gratifying  success which had attended his canvass throughout the district.  As ho will speak in the opera  house this evening, he cut his re-  maiks shorter than he otherwise  would.  The meeting closed with cheers  for the queen and candidates Houston and Green.

Like candidate Hall, the speaker  said he was a Liberal, but lie differed from candidate Hall in that  lie believed in abiding by the wishes  of ��� the majority of the political  organization to which lie belonged.  A representative meeting of the  Liberal association had decided not  to run a candidate. This was the  verdict of a very large majority of  the association," but after ifc had  been recorded Dr. Hali bad thrust  himself forward as a candidate. Dr.  Forin said he was supporting candidate Houston because he regarded  him as the most progressive of the  three candidates. He had three  times been elected to the office of  mayor, and the chief chargo-whieli  his opponents mado against him  was that he Jiad unduly favored  the laboring interest of the eity.

A little son of William H. Davidson, blacksmith at the 'Granite'  mine, died yesterday under most  unusual circumstances. The child,  who was in his fourth year, was  taken ill and Mr. Davidson came to  the city to consult doctors Hall and  Rose, the mine physicians. The  symptoms he recounted pointed to  spinal trouble and the physicians  recommended him to bring the  child to the hospital at once. He  returned to do this, but the boy  died before he could be moved. The  only theory as to the cause of death  was that a woodtick had penetrated  to the spinal canal at the back of  the child's neck and set up an irritation which quickly resulted  fatally. The insect was removed  from tho boy's neck bat the damage  bad apparently been done before  its presence was discovered. The  funeral will be held in the city.  Cotton Will Be Elected.  Private advices from Vancouver  are that premier Martin has not,  by any means, the confidence and  support of the workingmen of Vancouver, who have three straight  candidates in the field against liim.  Ex-minister of finance Cotton is  gaining ground rapidly, and there  is now little doubt that he will be  elected, as his old suppoit is almost  solid for him, and he will get a  good vote from Conservatives who  believe that he is an abler man than  either of the four nominees of their  party.   = " '  Dominion Dav Celebration.
