 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  WEDNESDAY MORNING   MAY 30 1900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS  KEEN ANSWERED BY GREEN  Combined Political Meeting.  Kaslo, May 29 -[Special to The  Tribune].���Bob Green and John  Keen held tlieir firsb combined  meeting here last night. Keen  opened the meeting and was so  lengthy that Green had to cut his  speech short in order to let the  meeting close by midnight, especially as G. 0. Buchanan had also  had his little say about purging the  voters' list. Keen, made a yery  strong attack upon the late government for alleged distrust created in  mining circles by reason of the constant interference with the mining  laws by orders-in-council. Dealing  ���with the charge that the Semlin  government desired to raise the  tax upon the mineral output from  one to two per cent, he quoted ap-  provingly Tiik Tribune's editorial.  Bob Green, however, disposed of  that matter by saying:  "I interviewed the government  and Semlin told me that there  never was any intention to raise  the tax. I never heard of any such  'intention either in the house or out  of it, or in caucus."  He claimed .John Keen's speech  was but a resume of his squabbles  with the government when he was  /mining recorder/Speaking of John  Keen's charges of parsimony, he  .said it was very true that some  salaries had been cut aiid in some  to land only on the consul  giving his guarantee that  they would obtain employment  within the next sixty days. Some  of the fifty Japs were rejected on  account of their having infectious  diseases, and others because they  appeared as contract laborers. The  Glenogle brought 358 Japanese to  Tacoma on tins trip, and the percentage of rejections was unusually  largo. The Japanese missionary at  Tacoma, who' makes it his business  to find employment for Japanese  immigrants, admitted to the examining board that there are 300 Japanese in Tacoma out of employment. ��  WILL ENTER JOHANNESBURG  BOXERS ADVANCE ON PEKIN  instances this was deservedly so.  During the life of the Robson-Davie-  Turuer government, which wore  really one continuous administration, a large number of barnacles  attached themselves to the government. Most of these men had had  their salaries increased from year  to year because they were friends  of the government. When the  Semlin-Cotfcon government came in  these barnacles were placed where  they ��� belonged, and, 'concluded  Green,  "1 stand before you as, Tudepen-  "dettp. My affiliations, if I have any,  a re1 with the Semlin-Cotton party  .���ind J am prepared to defend, their  fictions so far as I know them.  They are not a party rof broken  7>ledges. 'They are the only parfcy  which have put legislation on the  statute book plainly in the interests of the masses. They are the  only party that went to the house  find fulfilled iheir anti-election  pledges."  . SANDON,-May 29.���[Special to Tho  Tribune].���The Kaslo miners' union  have endorsed Bob Green "as their  candidate.  Thirty Chinese Killed,  Victoria, May 29.���On the day  prior to that on which tho steamship Bieekonshire left Japan news  was received there from Wei-IIai-  "Wei that serious disturbances had  occurred on May 5th on the British  station, Gulf of Pe-Chi-Li. Captain  Wasfcon and the (10 melt escorting  the boundary commissions, which  hadjbeen_engaged in_dclimitiug the  borders, left the territory at Wei-  Hai-Wei, when they were attacked  by a hostile mob. Thirty of the  attacking party were killed. The  losses in the Chinese battalion  under captaiu Watson were two  officers wounded, major Penrose  aud captain Periar. The Chinese  who attacked the British troops  had long been holding meetings to  complain of the taxes proposed to  be collected.  Treachery is Feared.  London, May 29.���The following  has been received from lord Roberts : "Germistown;���We arrived  here today, without being opposed.  No casualties. The enemy did not  expect us until'tomorrow, and had  not carried off all their rolling  stock. We have possession of the  junction connecting Johannesburg  with Natal, Pretoria and Klerks-  dorp by railroad.. Johannesburg is  reported quiet and no mines have  been injured.   I shall summon the  commandant in the morning and. I  propose to enter Johannesburg  with all troops at noon tomorrow."  Lord Roberts' dispatch is. regarded as announcing the occupation of Johannesburg, and apparently the Boers have again effected  a retreat, as there is no mention of  any prisoners or captures. There  will be some anxiety pending the  actual occupation'of Johannesburg,  as there is evidence that the town  has been mined with the intention  of blowing up the British army on  their entry into the place. Germistown is a suburb to the southeast  of Johannesburg railway junction,  and general Roberts mentions ifc in  his message to the. war office probably because Bl&ndsfontein station  is further east.  Additional evidence that the  mines are intact comes in a message  received by a mining company here  today from its Johannesburg representative, ' dated May 28th, via  Delagoa Bay, saying: "All right."  Cascade Mountain Ascended.  Banff, N. W. T., May 29.--The  ascent of Cascade mountain, one of  the, highest peaks of the Canadian  Rockies was made yesterday. A  party accompanied by two Swiss  guides left Banff hotel at 4 o'clock  and by noon had sealed fche sides of  the mighty peak. The ascent was  made from the side that was supposed to be invulnerable to the  climber's attack. The return trip  took two hours and a half, the  previous record being 18 hours.  Fighting on the Gold Coast.  London, May 29.���The British  colonial office today received advices from colonel Wileock in_com;  mand of relief forces which recently started from Kumassi saying  that a small force of Houssas from  Prashu commanded by lieutenant  Slater had been attacked and that  Slater and several of his men had  been killed.  News From the North.  ViorpuiA, ,May 20.���News has  been received here that the steamer  Mora with the first crowd of Klon-  dikers of the season reached Lake  Ltsb&rge on May 24th on her way  from Dawson. The ice blocked her  1 here but it is expected the river  will bo clear by now. Fishing for  f-priug salmon lias commenced on  the northern rivers. During the  big .storm last week considerable  damage was done to Indian villages  on the west coast of Vancouver  i-land. Seal skins brought in by  Indians biiug $15, an advance of  $r> over last year. As u consequence  Jnclian hunters are demanding  higher wages to go on white  s-chooners.   Japanese Immigrants Rejected.  Tai'Oma, May 29.���A special board  of inquiry worked from 7 o'clock  last night until midnight passing  on 71 'Japanese who had been rejected by immigration inspector  Walker on the steamer Glenogle.  Out of this number the board rejected 50 outright. Nineteen of the  i emaining came very near being rejected.       They      were      allowed  Will Settle Dreyfus Matter.  Paris, May 29.���The senate  reassembled today and M. E. Euriu  presented his report on the amnesty bill, the provisions of which  pi event; further criminal proceedings in the Dreyfus case, and, in accordance wifch the wishes of the  government, he asked for a discussion of the measure next Friday, to  which the senate agreed.  Bains Fall in India.  London, May 29.���The viceroy of  India telegraphs that good rains  have fallen in Mysore and that scattered showers have fallen elsewhere.  The cholera has not abated in many  parts of Bombay and Rajputana,  and causes much mortality. There  arc now 5,730,000 persons receiving  relief.            Boers in Natal.  London, May. 29.���The Times  publishes the following from Newcastle, dated Sunday: "Pour hundred Boers are advancing towards  Dundee. There is no fear that our  communications will be cut."  Bocrs���Keoccupy Kruaman.  Barkly West, May 20.���It is reported that the Boers have rcoecu-  pied Kruaman and large laagers are  located at Reifcfontein and  Dnnielskuit.  Dangerous Insurrection.  Washington, May 29.���Such advices as have reached here indicate  that the situation in China has assumed a very critical phase, and  one calculated to tax the entire resources of the Chinese government.  The state department has been in  close communication with Mr.  Conger, United States minister at  Pekin, and the navy department is  taking its share, having placed the  flagship Newark as far up the Pei  Hoe river as the Taku forts, which  is the nearest point to Pekin that  the ship can reach. The operations  of the Boxers are increasing in  magnitude. Their demonstrations  a,re no longer local and they appear  to be governed in their movements  by some well settled design. They  have murdered nine Methodist missionaries in one province at the  town of Pachow, and have closed  on Pekin.  Meantime the Chinese army is  suspected of disloyalty. The department has cabled minister. Conger authorizing him to call upon  the nearest United States vessels  for assistance for the protection of  a marine squad for the legation. It  is not known whether he availed  himself of the permission or not.  The ship he would get would be the  Newark, and it is- assumed he has  already communicated with admiral Kempf on board the flagship.  The embarrassing feature of the  situation is the cutting of the communication by rail between Taku  and Tien-Tsin, and there are probably only two courses open to the  marines who wish-to reach Pekin.  a long overland march through a  hostile country away from supports, or a tedious voyage upon the  swift and shallow Peiho in shore  boats in tow of the steam launches.  According to reports the Chinese  'government has done, every thing to  meet the* demands of the diplomatic body at Pekin for the dispersion of fche Boxers, but it\ appears  that the uprising is more serious  than was at first apprehended, and  even the resident , ministers Lat  Pekin are inclined to admit thafc  the task is not an easy one for the  Chinese government. -  London, May 30.���The Daily Express has the following ^from  Shanghai, dated Tuesday: "The rebellion continues to grow in intensity, and the gravest fears are entertained of its ultimate extent.  The foreign envoys at Pekin, fearing a massacre within the capital,  have decided to bring up the guards  of tho legation. The rebels are now  massing outside of Pekin, and their  numbers are reported to be constantly augmenting. Fresh contingents of armed 'malcontents are  coming up almost hourly from the  north.  The imperial troops who were  sent to disperse the rebels found  themselves hopelessly outnumbered.  Several hundred  were_killed_and  two guns and many rifles were  captured, after which most of the  remaining troops went over to the  rebels. They are now marching  side by side. Ifc is believed thafc  the "Boxers" have the sympathy of  the entire army and there is no  doubfc fchafc they have the countenance of fche Empress Dowager and  Prince Ching. The Belgian ministry escorted by a strong body  guard has gone to obtain an audience of /the Tsung-Li-Yamen, a  number of his countrymen wifch  their families haying been cut off  by tbe rebels afc Chang Tsin Tien.  Pekin, May 29.���The relief parfcy  has returned from Ching Tsin Tien,  bringing 25 persons including several women and children.  London, May 30.���The Times,  commenting upon the situation in  Pekin, says:  "We must follow the excellent  example set us by the Americans  and lose uo time in telling the  Tbung-Li-Yamcn that unless they  reestablish security for the life and  property of our fellow subjects in  China, without delay, we shall take  strong measures on our parfc."  Marquis de Gallifet Resigned.  Paris, May 30���1 a. m.���General,  the marquis de Gallifefc, minister of  war, has resigned, and in his letter  to M. Waldeck-Rousseau, fche premier, asked him to place the resignation in the hands of the president  of fche republic. General de Gallifet pleads ill health as a reason for  his decision. His exact words arc :  "I am very unwell, and my heaifch  prevents me resisting all emotions    of   the    moment."       The  official     Journal     this    morning,  therefore, contains: the acceptance  of the resignation embodied  in  a  degree signed by M. Loubefc, which  also appoints the new minister of  war.   After deciding upon  general  Andre as the most   suitable successor, the premier telegraphed' to  him   at ���'��� Nemours,   where he was  taking   part   in   the   manoeuvres.  General   Andre   left immediately,  arriving at'Paris ;about  .1.1:15  lasfc  evening.     An   understanding was  rapidly reached regarding all points  in the ministerial program, and at  midnight the premier was able to  send the decree to the official journal.  In spite of his plea  of ill health,  this is not generally considered the  sole reason for the resignation of  general de Gallifet. Having in view  the   apologetic    statement    made  by    M.     Waldeck - Rousseau     in  the        chamber,   Cof       deputies  there:  seems    little     doubt    that  he   was   annoyed   by   the   word  "felony" applied to an. officer of the  French   army,   although' there  is  little- difference between this language   of   the   premier   and   that  which general de Gallifet had himself used at a previous meeting.  Rossland Debentures. Appeal.  Ottawa, May 20.���[Special to  The Tribune.] ���In the supreme  court the case of the Trusts aud  Guarantee Comp/vny vs the town of  Rossland came up today. The  action was brought by the company to recover damages for breach  of contract by the town to sell  them debentures to" the amount of  $50,000. A contract was' entered  into by the mayor of the town  with the company?1, and a resolution  was afterwards passed by the town  council approving of and ratifying  it, and it was then signed by the  city clerk and the corporate seal  attached to it. The town eventually refused to carry out the contract, and sold the" debentures to  other parties. The sole question in  the case was whether or no the corporate seal was attached to the  agreement. Tiie state provides  that ifc is to bo affixed, pursuant to  an order of the council. In this'  -case * there wae .ho -such order on  record, and no positive evidence  that ifc was affixed by the city  clerk. The courts below held that  the statute had not been complied  with.   Judgment was reserved.  Fighting in the Philippines.  Manila, May 29.���Major Henry  Allen of the 43rd infantry, ivhilo  scouting from Catbalong, Island of  Sumar, drove a party of insurgents  from the valley. Four Americans  were killed, including lieutenant  Evans, who was killed while gallantly leading a charge against the  entrenchment. "Eleven of tho  enemy were killed and four  wounded. The town of Catbman,���  Island of Sumar, was attacked at  midnight on April 30th by a thousand rebels who entrenched themselves near fche town oyer night.  Captain John Cook of the 43rd regiment) fought the Filipinos for six  hours and afterwards buried 150 of  theenemy's dead. One "American"  was killed and one wounded.  Tax on Oleomargarine.  Washington, May 29.���After an  exciting contest lasting many  months the advocates of the Grout  Bill placing an almost prohibitive  tax on oleomargarine and like imitations of butters succeeded today  in having that measure favorably  reported from the houge committee  on agriculture. The vote was 10 fco  7 in favor of the bill.  Houston Men Will Meet.  A meeting of John Houston's supporters will be held in Houston's  committee rooms on Vernon street,  opposite Hume Hotel, this evening  at 8 o'clock.

London, May 29.���Lord' Salisbury, who was entertained at dinner tonight by the City of London  Conservative Association, made an  important announcement regarding  the government's South African  policy.  "The 'stop-the-war' party have  used my name," said the premier,  "in support of their ideas by stating thafc I promised there should be  no annexation of territory, nor annexation of the gold fields. I  never gave the pledge. I never  never meant to give a i^ledge.  (Loud cheers). I stated a simple  historical fact. We are accused of  going to war for lust of gold and  territory.' It was one of the atrocious calumnies which, under the  favoring influence of Dr. Leyds,  spread itself over the press of  Europe. Nothing could be more  untrue.  "We went to war to stop the oppression of the queen's subjects in  the Transvaal, and, because our  remonstrances were met by an insulting ultimatum, to which if the  ' queen's government had submitted,  her power not only in South Africa,  but over her colonies and dependencies would have been at an end,  we were forced into war by the  actions of our opponents.  "To say that because we repudiated the greed of territory we  therefore bound ourselves never to  annex any territory is a ridiculous  misconstruction. I dwell on this  lioint because this matter of annexation is about to become a burning  question.  "We have made a tremendous  sacrifice of blood and treasure in  the conflict. There are misleading  prophets whose action bulks as  large in the columns of the newspapers as the action of more influential and powerful people/ who  mislead the rulers of the Transvaal  to continue resistance far beyond  the time" when all resistance had  ceased to be even possibly successful. These men arc perpetually  pressing ns fco make some conditions or offer some arranged stipulations that will leave a shred of independence to the two republics.  Our only certainty of preventing a  recurrence of this fearful war "is to  insure thafc never again shall such  vast accumulations of armament?  be permitted, and that not a shred  of the former independence of the  republics shall remain,    (Cheers.)  "Wc are not yefc at the end of tho  war, but I shall venture fco lay it  down as a primary condition of any  future settlement, thafc precautions  will be taken of such a character  that such a war will never oeeur  again. Of course, what' measures  will benecessary it is impossible at  any moment to determine, because  that depends largely upon the action and temper of those with whom  we have to deal. I have already  intimated-that their-resistance-has  gone beyond the limit to which resistance could wisely go. Ifc is not  for us to criticize their acts in what  thoy arc pleased to call self defence,  but they havo-aclcd so that every  bitterness ctcatcd by the war, and  every severance of classes and races  have been stimulated by every  measure they 'have taken, and so  they go on,  "it will also be Our duty to protect those native races who have  been so sorely afflicted, and at the  same time so to conduct our policy  that bo far ns possible there shall  be a reconciliation, and that every  one shall be a happy member of the  British empire."  After the master of the rolls,  lord Alverstone, had proposed the  imperial forces, lord Salisbury rose  again, holding a paper in his hand,  and said: ,  "J find thafc lord Roberts has  occupied Johannesburg."  This announcement was followed  by a wild display of enthusiasm,  tho company cheering for "Bobs"  and singing God Save the Queen.  Lord Salisbury, later in the evening, when proposing "The City of  London Conservative Association,"  referred to tho glorious news received, and said: "One thing we  havo learned from the war is that  everything depends upon the general."  London, May 30.���Lord Salisbury's utterances at the banquet of  the City of London Conservative  Association last evening are the  most emphatic enunciation of the  government's attitude toward tho  conquered states which has yet been  put forth.      His  declarations ^ are  accepted by the newspapers as irrevocable, especially the declaration "not a shred of independence  shall remain."  The Standard says: "Annexation  is already more than half accomplished and, since Sunday, the  Gazetteers and books of reference  on the subject have been obsolete."  The Daily News calls the speech  "the logic of the stricken field."  The Times says: "There will be  no commiseration for the extinction  of the Transvaal, but there will be  some sentimental regret over the  obliteration of the Orange Free  State."  NEXT STOP IS AT PRETORIA  ANGLICAN  SYNOD   OPENED  The Program.  The synod of the Anglican church  began its labors at Sfc. Saviour's  church last night when the lord  bishop of the diocese presided at a  missionary meeting.

Millionaire Lumberman Dead.  Detroit, May 20.��� David Ward,  lumberman and owner of a fortune  of $25,000,000, died today. Mr.  Ward was a native of New York.  He had been identified since 1850  wifch leading enterprises of Michigan, chiefly in lumbering and pine  land development and speculation.  Roberts' Wonderful Advance.  London, May 30.-3:30 a. m.���  Lord Roberts is bivouacking in the  suburbs of Johannesburg and intends to make a victorious entry at  noon today. Judging from his dispatch he must have private information as to the disposition of the  garrison in the fort as he does nofc  seem to expect opposition. Lord  Roberts' cavalry has flowed on beyond Johannesburg. A portion is;  understood to be at Zurzurfontein, >  seven miles north of Johannesburg  and within twenty miles of Pretoria. Lord Roberts, although  with a broken bridge at Vereeniging and a wrecked railway behind  him, has somehow managed to get  forward sufficient supplies for his  large force.  As he has been able to do so  much, it is considered possible lie  will be outside of Pretoria on Friday. The rapidity of his advance  is thought to be an extraordinary  achievement, even by grudging  continental critics. The Boers, who  expected to fight along the line of  hills known as Klipriversberg} ,  abandoned the eastern end of the  range, near lord Roberts' advance  line, bub they stood their ground  on the extieme right near Van  Wycksrust, where they met general  French's turning movement. The  fight continued all day, and the result is as yefc mere conjecture. Probably the Boer rear guard succeeded in keeping general French  off, and is now in the hills northwest; of Johannesburg.  The Standard  has  the following,  advices from Pretoria  under  Mon- '  day's date: "The Transvaal government   has opened  or is about to "  open peace negotiations.     It has  cibled a final inquiry to its agents  abroad asking whether  any  hope  exists of aid."  Without doubt the presence of  lord Roberts with 40,000 men at  Johannesburg will hasten the  Transvaal's decision. Dispatches  fiom Lorenzo Marquez described  president Kruger oh "wavering but, '  demanding a guarantee that he  shall not be exiled fco Sfc. Helena."  The fighting burghers still continue  fco desert, and thu total collapse of  fche Boer military organization is  uot far off.  '  Bennet Burleigh, wiring from  lord Roberts' headquarters at Ve- ,  reeniging, on Sunday, says: - ''I  doubt if president Kruger " can  muster 15,000 men. as many of the  burghers' have gone to their homes.  The stauncher Boers are sending  their families with wagons and  stores to" the Zoufcpansberg district.  Whether Pretoria will" be defended  is uncertain, although a Pretoria  message dated Sunday, pictures the  work of defending the capital as  going on wifch 'feverish activity.' "  Pi efcoria is situated in a wilderness of kopjes and ranges and is  provided wifch defenses that require  at least_20,000 _mea to man-them -  properly, bufc there may still be one  hard nut for the Biitish to crack.  The last message out of Pretoria is  the following, dated May 28th and  censored by the Boer government:  "Kraus, acting as a special commandant at Johannesburg, has issued a circular to the officials concerned warning them of the necessity of controlling the foreign element in fche town, and directing  them to resist all attempts to- de- -  sti-oy property or life, meeting  force with force,"  The Xetherlaiid Railway Company yesterday notified the authorities at Lorenzo Marquez that,  they must decline to accept goods  for , delivery afc Johannesburg.  Johannesburg telegrams are still  accepted subject to stoppage at  Pretoria.   Enthusiasm in London.  London, May 30.���The news that  lord Roberts was practically master  of Johannesburg wa.s received in  London with noisy enthusiasm. A  procession of students marched  through the west end cheering and  singing. The announcement at the  various places of amusements was  followed by singing of fche National  Anthem and cheering for "Bobs."  While the townspeople afc Fleetwood were cheering the announcement that lord Roberts had occupied Johannesburg, the German  crew of the Henrietta, an English  vessel that wtis sold to a German  firm, cheered president Kruger.  Several conflicts occurred between  between the Germans and the English and the chief officer of the Hen-  rietta. was mobbed. Ultimately  the police force was doubled.    ���  t&$_mz THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON B.

We  have  just opened  a  nice assortment  of  Childrens' Underwear.  Although the present campaign  has deA'eloped sevei'al very warm  contests, still, upon the whole, it is  being conducted by the press, at  least, in a rather fair spirit. The  Nelson Miner is probably the most  noteworthy exception to this rule.  The editor of the Miner has the impression, that in order to convince  his readers that either candidate  Fletcher or candidate Heill would  make a good representative, ho  must attempt to show that the  election of candidate Houston  would bring about stagnation. The  oilitor of the Miner appears to bo  somewhat hysterical upou the John  Houston subject. If this were not  so lie would not attempt to show,  tbat, in the event of candidate  Fletcher's election, eager capital  would, flow into, the undeveloped  mines of   Kootenay   in   a   golden  o  stream ; while the election of candidate Houston would spell eternal  stagnation. When an election  looms up the editor of the Miner  seems to take leave of his senses.  It is not so very long ago since  candidate. Fletcher..and candidate  Houston were rival aspirants for  the office of chief magistrate of the  city. At this time The Tribune  expressed the opinion that, while  its preferences were for candidate  Houston, the interests.of the corporation would be safe in the keeping of either candidate. The editor  of the. Miner,; however, declared  that neither candidate was a fit occupant for the office of chief magistrate, and he called upon the sober-  minded citizens to get together and  nominate a presentable candidate.  All this happened less than six  months ago. Jf six months ago  Frank Fletcher was denounced by  the editor of the Miner as an unfit  man for the office of mayor, how  comes it,, that within so short a  time, the salvation of the country  depends upon the same man being  returned as the representative of  the Nelson riding in the provincial  legislature?] l   ,  The  editor of the Miner is not  content to conduct the newspaper  end of  candidate Fletcher's campaign. It has come to his knowledge  that a number of fche business men  of Nelson aro supporting candidate  Houston, and with this large body  of citizens tlio-irate old gentleman  proceeds to quarrel.   He even goes  so far as to say that fche business  men who are supporting candidate  Houston do not know'their business.   He reads them a lecture.    He  says: "the business of a business  '( man is not to run after free ad-  '* vcrfcising, to humor a mayor who  " may have some municipal patron -  " age, or to pay obsequious court fco  " a member in-the hope of getting  " something in return."'    This lofty  tone comes well from a man who  psrsoually endeavored to play the  _pai't_ of a _parieifce -With-a-friendly  eity council.   Has he forgotten that  written  application  for  free   city  water, which even his friends had to  refuse?       Candidate Hall's friends resent  the patronizing manner of the Nelson Miner toward their candidate.  They.do not like to have their candidate held up like u wa&fcepaper  basket, merely for the sake of preventing votes from going to candidate Houston. They consider thafc  this patronage labels their candidate at? a dead horse, and a1? few  electors like to shout for a lost  cause, they consider that they are  fchei'eby injured.  ^ Yourself and Friends are Invited by  '^* ^- 0** l_+' ^' *0- 0*' -*\0*< +*\^' 00' 0*' &��� 0*$*?\  xit  Xit  Xit  Xit  Xit  Xii  Xii  The Home Art Society of  Decorative Needle  Work  of New York, to view an Exhibition of Silk Art Needle Work and  to arrange for a series of lessons, from May 28th to June 13th.

Hon.  ���J. Stuart Yates will go down in two  place.-,.    He will lose his deposit in  Nanaimo and he will be lucky if he  gets   off   any   better iu   Victoria.  Yates is clearly out of ifc.    Premier  Martin  is  also  nominated  iu  two  places,    Victoria   and   Vancouver.  He has no hope of success in the  capital    but    will    probably   pull  through in Vancouver.    In We&fc-  jninster the minister of finance has  a hard row to hoe.    He has lost  many friends through his desertion  of principles for office, and the gen  eral opinion is that the Conservative candidate will take him iuto  camp. In West Yale the candidature of .the recently created minister of agriculture is taken as a joke.  Of the remaining member of the  Martin aggregation ifc may be said  that Smith Curtis has a fighting  chance of election in the Rossland  riding.         The Ymir Miner does not agree  with the Nelson Miner's account of  that Liberal rally in Ymir, when  Dr. Hall's candidature was endorsed.  The Ymir paper asserts that there  were'but twenty persons at the  meeting, some of whom were not  voters ; thafc even this small meeting was nofc unanimous for candidate Hall; and that he will only  poll aboufc eighteen per cent of the  vote at Ymir. The, above would  seem to indicate that the story-published in "the Nelsou Miner requires  a great deal of fixing. Both papers  are advocating the election of candidate Fletcher, but fche Ymir end  of the combination evidently has  not, been posted as to the necessity  of keeping candidate Hall in the  race for the purpose of splitting the  Houston vote.

THE   FRIEND_OF   LABOR.  (Jieonwood Tune*.  John Houston lias always been  co-isiderod a strong friend of labor.  The Martin government are running  Dr. Hall to defeat him.  Kobert Green fought in the interests of labor. Smith Curtis  spent ti week endeavoring to get a  candidate that would cut into his  vote, and at last succeeded.  Ralph Smith is surely a friend of  tabor, yet he has an uncompromis-  iing foe in the Martin government.

The labor men of Vancouver, who  lxiiow Joseph Martin, have been  forced in their own interests to run  t wo candidates against the 31artin  candidates.  Joe Martin says: "Death to the  Chinese." Joe Martin's candidate  in Richmond is Duncan Rowan, a  cannery owner, who employs Chinese and believes in Chinese labor.  Joe Martin's candidate in East  Kootenay is C. J. Burnett, another  believer in Chinese labor.  Joe Martin says, "Let us> fight the  ���Ottawa government and the Im-  joiial government on the Chinese  <|iiestion," and ac the same time defeats home legislation that would  prevent tho employment of Chinese  in tho mines.

It burst just before  touching the water. The V. C. is  worn on the left breast, suspended  by ti blue ribbon in the navy, and  by a red ribbon in the tinny.

(1) I am in favor of an equitablo rodistubution  of the seats in tho legislative assembly, based  generally upon population, but with due regard  to the interests and ciicumstanccs of outlying  and sparsley settled districts.  (2) I shall advocate the govei nment ownership  of rail wa> s and other public franchises so far as  may be piacticable, and a general enactment  by which companies desiring to construct railways may be incorporated without special legislation, and that railways bonused by the province may be undor government control an to  their latcs and subject to purchase at government option.  (.1) I shall do all in my power to assist and sup-  poi t tho advancement and development of tho  mining intcicsts of the province, upon which its  piospentj is so maicrially dependent.  (1) I believe in the principle of the eight-hour  law and bhall permit no interference with the  law as it stands, and shall insist upon the retention of the penalty clause.  (5) I shall advocate a liberal expenditure upon  trunk roads and trails in tho various districts of  the province, belie* ing that upon such expendi-  turo the development of the vast resources of  tho country materially depends.  (6) I shall advocate, and if elected assist in,  the enactment of laws for the piopcr adjustment  of disputes botweon labor and capital, by a well  digested and equitably arranged syctem of compulsory arbitration.  (7) I believe that Asiatic und other cheap  labor is detrimental to the best mtciests of British Columbia. I shall thercfoic advocate its restriction so far as it may be intra vires of provincial legislation, and shall assist, in bringing such  pressure to bear upon the fedoral government as  may induce that govei nment to assist in the  woik. and will most emphatically insist that no  fciieh class of labor shall be employed upon any  public works undertaken by the province or upon  such works us are subsidized by, or many wa>  subject to tho contiol of the government.  (8) I believe that t he educational system of the  provinco may he materially in.pi ovctl and shall  f;ivc my hcai (jest as-sistancc in bringing it to the  ugliest stajc of cfliciency by the establishment of  noimal schools and cthei instrumentalities that  may tend to the accomplishment of that object.  IB) I shall al-o advocate and assist in the development of the agncultural resources of lhe  pioA nice.  (10) I believe thafc the monejs ot the province  should be owendod upon some broad and general  s>stem whicli would ensure the greatest amount  of benefit fiom such expenditure. In lhi<> riding  I havo endeavoiedto jnaiigmate such a system  bj having tlio vi ork upon roads and trajs placed  under siesponsiblu head, so that tho appropriation, iiecessanly inadequate under existing circumstances, might be benofloially and economically expended.

To tiik Electors of thk Nelson Hidino :  Gentlemen���As the unanimous choice of a duly  -constituted contention of tlio supporters of the  Provincial Party in tho Nelson riding, I am be-  foicjouas a candidate for repicscntntne of tho  Nelson riding in the no\r. provincial legislatm e.  In this connection I desne to solicit 30111 votes  and influence 111 111) bolialf. Believing that  every man nspiung for membership should place  himself on rccoid on the main issues I take this  opportunity of slating that I am 111 favor of legislation upon the following lines:  1. licpresentalioii in tho legislative assembly  should be based on population, with such modifications as w ill gi\c sparselj settled dist 1 icts pio  pot tionately hugcr leprcsentation than rides and  thickb settled f.u uiing distiicts.  2. All legislation should he gencial, and not  special. A beginning has been made 111 this  direction by Ihecn.ictmcnt of laws undei which  cities can be mcoiporatcd, companies foi mod,  and water records obtained. Those should bu  added to by the passage of a gencial 1 ail way 111  corporation act, and one gmng municipalities  the same powers to acquire water recoids as aio  now accorded pnvatc corpoi.itions.  3. Public lands should be kept foi actual settlement, and land subsidies should not bo gianted  to aid the building of railways that whon built  ai cow nod by coi potations.  4. Go\01 nment owuciship of i.ulwajs is no  more a theory than municipal owneislnp of  public utilities. Both have been ti icd and found  to woik for the public good when capably and  honestly managed ; but m.iiiaking a commencement in government owneislnp of l.iilwajs in  this province, a section should be selected In  whicli the government ���would havo a free hand,  and not in sections wheie competition would be  met.  5. Prevention of the landing in this pro\inco  of Chinese and Japanese laboieis, and the discouragement of the cinploj ment of those already  here by every fair means possible.  C. Positive, not ncgatne. laws should only bo  passed. If the principle of a law is good, the  law should be eilcclivc. The eight-houi day for  men woikingundeigiound in metallifui011s mines  is now generally accepted as legislation in the  right ducction. I would opppse any legislation  that would repeal the penalty clause, 01 in any  other waj impair the effectiveness of the law as  it now stands.  7. To gi\ e immediate eftccfc, bj legislation, to  a resolution similar to that known ns IheMuloch  resolution, recently ' passed by the Dominion  House of Commons, -winch provides for the paj-  ment of fair wages on public woiks or -woiks  aided by go\ eminent subsidies. All contiactors  doing woik for either the piovince or for municipalities should be rcquued to pay laboi the 1 ate  of vages 1 tiling m the municipality or ncighboi-  hood in which the woik is to be done, the number of hours to constitute a da> on all such woik  to be fixed bj statute.  8. Courts ha\e been established in which 111-  dniduals and coipointions arc compelled to  settle disputes, howevci trmal. disputes that  seldom have any bearing on the gcnei.il piospcr-  ity of the community 111 -which the disputants ic-  sidc; and courts should be established for the  compulsoiy settlement of disputes between the  representatives of capital and labor, disputes  that too often aie far reaching in their damaging  eflects on the general piospenty of whole communities and districts.  9. Mining for the precious molals is the one industry which is benefiting, ditectly or indnectly,  every community 111 the piovince, and legislation  affecting the lnaustiy, 111 thew.ij of taxation,  should be based on the treatment and ninnuf.ic-  tuie within the province of the pioduct of the  mines, rather than on the output of the mines as  at present. '  10. Tho establishment of a buic.ui, with licnd-  qututorb 111 ihitish Columbia and not in Gietnt  Britain, to systematically adveitise all the  natural lesources and scenic afti.ictions of the  prov ince,  11. Organized!municipalities should be gi\cn  tho control of their public-sohwHvlPavmg to the  province the care of public schools m unoigan-  ucd distiicts and the maintenance of normal and  technical "chools.  12.

Fisiiing Season of 1900
Championship Eace Probable.
A race for the professional
sculling championship of the world
now seems very likely to be held on
the lake here during the Dominion
Day celebration. Jake Gaudanr,
champion of the world, has signified his willingness to row any
man in the world here next Dominion Day, if he is guaranteed $500
and his hotel expenses. A similar
reply has been received from Johnston, the North Pacific oarsman.
All that is necessary is the raising
'/oi the necessary funds, and there
seems no doubt that that will be
accomplished. There is also a
chance of other competitors. The
course here could not be excelled
anywhere in the world, and such
an event would be an immense attraction to all lovers of such spoi'ts.
The Winnipeg and Coast rowing
clubs have also been written to,
and it is hoped that they will send
Canvassing with regaid to the
trade's procession wa.s also started
yesterday. F. W. Peters interviewed a number of the prominent
firms of the city, and so far all have
agreed to put up a float. So this
procession should be even finer
than last year.
All that is needed is a little
money to follow up past records by
making each celebration an improvement on the one of the year
before, and Nelsonites can bo relied
upon to go down to their pockets
on such an occasion with all their
old time liberality.
Option Taken Up.
Taylor & Hannington, acting under instructions from Ernest Mansfield, yesterday took up the option
of the assets of the West Kootenay
Brick & Lime Company,  including
the Balfour brickyard and the marble   quarry opposite Kash).      The
option   was   for  $25,000,  and   the
final payment of $15,000 was made
yesteiday.   Mr. Mansfield has succeeded in organizing a very strong
compauy to operate the properties,
aud special attention will be paid to
the production of marble, for whicli
a   strong   demand    exists.       The
quarry will be worked on a large
scale   with    the    most    improved
■ machinery, and shipments will be
made Lo the Coast, Winnipeg, Spo-
^Jkane and other points.    The proper
development of this industry will
be of considerable benefit to Nelson, and the successful flotation of
' the company is another tribute to
Mr.  Mansfield's  energy and enterprise, and to the confidence reposed
in   his   judgment by old country
capital.     .

Farewell to Rev. J. Robson.
The Methodist church was the
scene of a delightful social reunion
last evening, when the congregation and members of the Epworth
League met to spend a pleasant
hour with Rev. John Robson, B. A.,
and wife on the evo of their departure to their new home in Vancouver. The church was crowded, and
the proceedings were of an interesting nature. Charles McHardy, president of the league, occupied the
chair, and after extending a hearty
welcome to those present, and explaining the object of the gathering, introduced an excellent proj
gramme. Addresses were made by
Rev. J. Colter White, M. A., and
Mr. Robson, the latter referring to
the progress made by the church
during his pastorate, and the regret he felt on severing his connection with the church and city a
year earlier than he had anticipated. J. Howell followed with a
speech appreciative of Mr. Robson's
services to the church, and concluded by presenting him, on behalf
of the congregation, with a purse
containing a substantial sum in
gold. The gift was gracefully acknowledged. One of the ladies of
the church then presented Mrs.
Robson with an address from the
Ladies' Aid Society expressive of
tlieir appreciation of her services as
president. The address was accompanied by- a handsome silk dress,
the receipt of which Mrs, Robson
replied to in feeling terms. The
rest of the evening was spent ia
social intercourse the. ladies of
the church serving refreshments.
