 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO^DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAK.  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING  MAY 2G  1900.  PRICE EIVE CENTS  DREYFUS CASE CROPPED UP  Officer Dismissed.  Paris, May 25.���The question of  t lie alleged meddling of detectives  in  the Dreyfus  affair,  whicli was  ���warmly discussed at tho  reopening  of the chamber   of   deputies,  was  brought up in the senate this afternoon.    The minister of war, marquis  de Gallifet, denied the existence of  the Temps letters at the ministry  of  war,  but the  interpelkitor,  M.  Humbert, contradicted.    The marquis   de   Gallifet   today  expressed  regret   at  the fact   that   he   had  misled the chambef, as,  he added,  he had since ascertained that Humbert's     .statement      was     correct.  The     letters,     lie     asserted,     existed   at    tlio    ministry    without  his   knowledge.     The   minister of  war announced that the documents  had fallen into the hands of politicians who had  used  them  during  the debate of Tuesday by the crime  of an officer of the 'war oflice, who  had divulged them.     This  officer,  tlio minister continued, had  immediately been discharged.    The  officer, as au explanation, said the Marquis de Gallifet, made the  unheard  of remark that "what I did was  a  political act," and he  dared to  say  this to the minister of war, when it  is tho first duty  of an  officer  to  avoid politics.  M. de Cham il lard here exclaimed :  '���You are a military man but that  doe's not prevent you from taking  part in politics."  "Yes," replied the Marquis," but  I am a member of the government.  The condition of mind which led  , tho guilty officer to commit such nn  inconceivable act is unfortunately  not unexampled, but it must come  to an end." This statement of the  minister called forth loud socialist  cheers. ''As I declared before,"  continued the minister of  war, and since entering the  ministry, the Dieyf us incident, now  thafc tho Rennues court martial has  takeii place, is closed. All the army  has been warned and any soldier  departing from this line of conduct  , knows what to expect." The marquis ended with asking if the questioning senator was satisfied.  "Perfectly", replied the senator.  The premier, M, Waldeck-Roius-  pcau, followed and gave an explanation of the Temps affair, finally announcing that detective Temps had  been transferred and that the incident was closed..^  Boxers Must Be Suppressed  Washington, D.,0., May 25,���  The United States government has  taken a hand in the suppression of  the Boxers, the famous Chinese secret society, which is engaged in  the massacre of native Christians  * in China and to which is attributed  - numberless outrages upon the foreign missionaries. United States  minister Conger lias been instructed by the state department to inform the Chinese government that  ���the���government���of��� the- United"  States expects it to promptly and  thoroughly stamp out this society,  and to provide proper guarantees  for the maintenance of peace and  order and the protection of life and  pioperty of Americans in China, all  of whom are now threatened by  the operations of the Boxers.  Recruiting for British Army.  London, May 2.*;.- The secretary  of state for war, tlio Marquis of  Lansdowne, discussing military  matters in the house of lords today,  aniiouuced thafc 11,000 additional  troops would be sent to South Af-  i ica next month. In tho course of  his speech lord Lansdowne says:  "It is a formidable problem how recruiting is to be kept up when the  excitement of the present campaign  lias worn off. I do not think that  an increase of pay would tend to  make the army popular to the extent that some suppose, but the war  office is devoting itself to the .subject, and I believe the changes contemplated will tend to render the  jinny more acceptable to every  "class in the country.'  Boer Delegates' Plans.  Washington, May 23.���The following statement was issued today  by the Boor envoys, Messrs. Fischer.  Wessels, and Wolmarans, who are  representing the South African republics in this country: "We have  received many pressing invitations  from the large cities of the United  States to visit them, but owing to  t he short time we have to spend in  this country it will not bo possible  to accept all the invitations re-  c ci ved.   It is our intention to return  as soon as circumstances will permit  to   our   own   country, staying   in  Europe for some time in order to  carry out our instructions; but, before leaving, we have decided to  yield to the great demands of the  American people to   spend a few  more days'in America and we have  concluded,   first   of  all,   to    visit  Baltimore, Philadelphia, Boston and  Providence during the next week.  After visiting these cities, we are  in hopes of beiug able to spare the  time to extend our visit to several  other   cities in  the  middle states,  timely notice of which will be given  to the committees who have honored   us   with an   invitation."    The  common councils and  mayors  of a  number of cities are urging them to  make them a visit, and it  may be  possible that their stay in the country may be prolonged a few days  iu order to meet their wishes.    The  envoys regret exceedingly they cannot meet the great wishes of the  people who are so anxious to greet  them   as   they would  like to   do.  They  express themselves  as  very  grateful for the many expressions  of sympathy heard upon all sides  for their cause that is  so dear to  them, aud they trust the fact that  they   cannot   visit   all who   wish  them to do so, will in no way interfere with the full and free expressions of sympathy and  good   will  upon their part.  NO REST FOR BADEN-POWELL  News From Mafeking.  London, May 20.���Major-general  Baden-Powell declines to act on tho  suggestion of his friends that he  should return to England for rest.  Ho is determined to retain his active command at present.  Advices from Mafeking dated May  20th say: "The Boers are entrenching at Potfontein, 10 miles east of  Mafeking. The northern railway is  now repaired to a poiutavithin four  miles of the town. Ample supplies  of plain food are_ coming' in. Colonel Paden-Powell voluntarily gave  up 53 Boers and 13 wounded to the  Boer commandant, who thanked  him for his kindness."  The Baratongs, stimulated by  the British successes, attacked the,  rebel natives at Reitfontein ou May  19 th and took much loot. They released Sani, the old chief, who had  rendered good service to the .British iu keeping Mafeking supplied  with news of the Boer operations.  The railway sohth.of Mafeking is  beiug rapidly repaired and the  bridge at Taungs can now be used.  He fu gees from Mafeking are pressing through Taungs, bound for the  Cape.  Two thousand Boers' are near  Ficksburg, besides small roving parties that come into contact with  tho British while reconnoitering.  President Steyn was with these  Boers last Monday, organizing and  inspiring them, and drafting recall  cifcrants into servicer The British  1ATEST NEWS OF THE WAR  Strict Boer Censorship.  London, May 20.���3:30 a.m.���The  latest intelligence from lord Roberts'   headquarters   at    Vredefort  station at 5:33 Thursday afternoon,  was that the Britisli were rapidly  advancing.   General Hamilton had  effected a junction with lord Roberts.   The country in front of them  was clear of Boers   to   Vilejoens.  The Boers were evacuating all their  positions south of the Vaal river,  and 5000 had already crossed to tho  north    bank.       Probably   general  French's cavalry is already recon-  noitering towards the Vaal.     War  office   observers   expect   that   the  next dispatch from the field mar-  shall will be dated in sight of the  Transvaal frontier.  Bennett Burleigh, wiring to the  Daily Telegraph from Vredefort on  Thursday evening, said that lord  Roberts would doubtless cross the  Vaal on Saturday or Sunday. The  British outposts were then at Erste  Geluk, nine miles north of Vredefort, and 26 miles south of the Vaal  river. The railway is much damaged.  While the British in overwhelming force are thus approaching the  Transvaal the governments tof the  Boers are * enveloped in mystery.  The last Pretoria newspaper reaching Lorenzo Marquez was a week  old. Every one seeking to cross  the Portuguese border from the  Transvaal is searched for newspapers and letters. Dispatches  and mail letters containing even  harmless references to the war are  suppressed, and the only news that  has ' emerged from the Transvaal  during the last ten days has come  by word of mouth. According to  these oral reports yesterday, the  Boers were quarrelling among  themselves. Transvaal paper money  was circulating at 80 per cent discount. .The Begbie firm was giving  one pound in gold for five pounds  in paper.         ,           >���'-  ..The* -Transvaalers fear that the  British,will blow up the bridge at  Koomatiport, thus shutting off  their supplies from Delagoa Bay,  and a commando of 500 is* guarding  the bridge against any such attempt-  by British raiders.  It is reasserted that president  Kruger will retire to Lydenburg  when fighting is - imminent at  Johannesburg and Pretoria.  with cavalry in frtiht of the town,  having attacked the commando  which held the railway, and driven  it headlong, capturing 13 wagons  and taking a number of prisoners.  The burghers are hastening to surrender their arms. President Steyn  is at Frankfort.  DEADMAN'S ISLAND AGAIN  are sweeping the country far and  wide, seizing horses, cattle and  grain. Yesterday President .Steyn  was reported to be at Bethlehem  with a small field force appealing  tq the Free Staters to defend their  freedom and independence. Apparently he, and all the Free Staters  he can assemble, will not join the  Transvaalers, but will remain in  the northeastern, section of the  Free State.  On Tuesday there was heavy cannonading at Mocheuenz, near Bethlehem. The firing began at dusk.  Why, and with what result is not  known at Maseru, Basutoland,  where the news arrived yesterday.  General Itundle's division was  still at Trommel Tuesday. There  was a small Boer laager twelve  miles to the north of him, and beyond this there was a larger one.  The correspondent sending this  news, whicli was wired from Winburg, said that these Boers were  understood to be ready, to surrender, and that in his opinion the war  n the Free State was practical! y  over.  The Times has the following from  Newcastle, dated Thursday: "The  Boers are fortifying a very large  semi-circular position extending  from Majuba to Pongwana. Large  numbers are busy entrenching and  six guns are visible."  General Buller has communicated  to the colonial government colonel  Bethuen's report of the loss of a  squadron of Bethuen's Horse in the  ambush at Vryheid. The report  says that "This regrettable affair  was due to the impetuosity of  captain Goff who was killed."  An Electioneering Move.  Vancouver, May 25.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The Deadman's  island matter is to become a live  political question again. On June  1st, 100 men will start work on ,the  island clearing for the Ludgate mill  site, under the patronage of premier Martin. The_lease hasjiotyet  been confirmed at Ottawa, but it is  expected that there will bo no objection to the work proceeding, the  forcible objectiou which previously  stopped the work coming from the  Cotton-Semlin government. The  re-starting of work may be only a  plan to help out the election, as the  reporter's informant stated significantly that work might be stopped  after June 0.  C. T. W. Piper's sawmill, valued  at $15,000, was burned down on  Thursday. A Chinaman named  Quong has been arrested for in-  incendiarism, it being alleged that  in revenge for replacing Chinamen  with whites, the Chinese burned the  mill down.   Outrage by Yankees.  NvACtf, N, Y., May 25.���Robert  Snoden of Momsey, an Englishman  by birth, raised a British flag ou his  house to celebrate the queen's  birthday yesterday, Several neighbors came on the premises and  ordered the flag taken down. Mr.  Snoden refused, when one of the  men held him while others climbed  on the house, tore down the flag  and burned it. Mr. Snowden says  he will take legal proceedings to  have the offenders punished.  Broadwood's Success.  Heiuiron, May 22.���Fighting lias  been in progress since Sunday,  when three British divisions  started to sweep the country as far  as Bethlehem. Yesterday the  Boers attacked the British rear  but were driven off. Today,  after a slight rear guard  action, colonel Broadwood! arrived  C.P.R. AND CREAT NORTHERN  Arrangements Completed.  Harry Edwards, chief engineer of  the Great Northern railroad, was in  Nelson on Thursday, his private car  being attached to the regular train  on the previous evening. Mr.  Edwards' visit wai>" the last move  in the negotiations by which the  C. P. R. takes over that portion of  the Nelson and Fort Sheppard road  between this eity���" and Five Mile  point. The N. <fc F. S. road is to  have running rights over the  section, and Mr. Edwards inspected  the connections which have been  made at Five Mile joining the Balfour extension to the N. & F. S.  with a view to satisfying himself  that the trains on his section would  not be interfered with in /running  onto the line which is passing into  the hands of tho C. P. R.  By the agreement between the  two companies the.'C. P. R. .takes  over the entire" system, including  depot buildings, round house, turntable, etc. The consideration is said  to have been $100,000, "but The  Tribune does not quote this  officially.  The Nelson & Fort Sheppard company retains running rights over  the section and obtains admission  to the center of the city, as the now  depot which the C.~ P. R. -is building  will be union station.  The C. P. R. will proceed at once  to build about a mile of road in the  city to connect their track, known  as the Crow's Nest switch, with the  N. &*F.|S. track at the Fairview depot. They will also spend a considerable sum, not less than $25,-  000. in replacing culverts and correcting the alignment from Five-  mile point in. Some of the contractors now working on the Balfour extension expect to do this  work. ��� '     . "  The official announcement of tiie  transfer is expected daily. "  RODERTSMTTINUN FAST  Hutton. Near Railroad.  London, May 25.���Another advance along the lailroad towards  Pretoria has brought lord Roberts'  troops to Vredefort road, a few  miles north of Prospect, where they  arrived at upon Thursday.'  In the meantime general Methuen  is progressing along the southern  bank of the Vaal river, with the object possibly of making a dash at  Klerksdorp-wheu ho-arrives -opposite to thafc raihvay terminus.  General Hutton's column is apparently in the neighborhood of  Vredefort, 15 miles west of the mil-  uoad, whence ifc threatened the  federals' right flank.  The next couple of days ought to  settle whether lord Roberts will encounter serious opposition south of  the Vaal, but the best opinion believes the next big engagement will  be fought jn.st south of Johannesburg, and thafc tho fight there,  and possibly one at LuingV Nek,  will prove the last pitched battles  of the war. The latest indications  almost point to the latter being tho  most stubborn of the two.  It i& hoped here that general Hulls i1 will delay until lord Roberta) is  able to detach a force to seize Heidelberg aud sever railroad communication between Johannesburg an d  La tag's Nek,  Canadian Gilt Edged Securities.  Ottawa, May 25.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���in the hou&o today  Fielding introduced a bill in connection witli the admission of  Canadian stock to the tru&teo li.sfc  in Great Britain. Similar legislation will be put through in parliament, and in this way Canadian  stocks will be recognized a.s gilt  edge securities. Tho balance of the  day was spent in consideration of  the fisheries' estimates.  Two More Hatcheries.  Ottawa, May 25.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Minister Davies, iu the  house yesterday, said two new fish  hatches'!^ were to be built iu British Columbia.  DIG CELEBRATION AT KASLO  ,  Account of the Games.  The Queen's birthday celebration  at   Kaslo was quite successful in  many   respects,   and    one   of  the  marked features of the demonstration   was   the   number   of Nelson  people present and participating in  the various sports.   A conservative  estimate     of    the     number      of  Nelbonites who went to Kaslo on  Thursday places the figures at 750.  These were divided   between   the  steamers Moyie and International,  whicli steamed out from the city  wharf   well   loaded    and   lavishly  decorated with flags and greenery.  Aboard  the   International   were  the Oddfellows, the  Citizens' band  and excursionists generally to the  number of 400.   The steamer got  away about the same time as the  Moyie and  landed her passengers  earlier at  Kaslo,  making  no stops  en route.     The   C. P. R. boat   was  chartered     by     the   Knights    of  Pythias   and   carried   the   Nelson  Rifles and Municipal band, having a  total   aboard   of   about   350.   She  called at Procter, Balfour and Ainsworth, where further quotas were  added    to    the   crowd.     As   the  steamers   swung  round the lighthouse point into tho lake they encountered a heavy swell and several  cases of sea sickness resulted.   The  The Moyie was  to   have   made a  landing at Pilot Bay, but the passengers urged the captain to desist  in view of the big rollers,  and  accordingly  the steamer's nose was  turned up the lake, leaving a number   of disappointed   excursionists  on the dock at Pilot Bay.   As the  steamers came into the wharf at  Kaslo they were accorded "a warm  welcome,   volleys   of   bombs   and  cheers indicating the enthusiasm of  the townspeople. -^  suited in a tie after the little kickers had worked hard for an hour.  The Nelsou Juniors were:  Jack Bannerman, goal; Eddie  Wallace and George Bailey, backs;  Leslie McBeath Dave McCallum  and Bert Davison, halfbacks; Will  Davison, Bert Wallace, captain,  Wilmot Steed and Clinton McBeath,  forwards.  The baseball match was somewhat of a fizzle. The Nelson nine  was in great shape, bnt Kaslo only  had a half-a-dozen or less players,  and the the vacancies had to be  filled by visiting players. Sam  Neelands and Harry Houston were  the battery for Kaslo, while Lew  Waters and MeLeod wrere on the  points for Nelson. Nelson beat  Nelson-Kaslo by a handsome majority.  The downtown proceedings were  enlivened by a series of lively  scraps, the Club hotel being the  storm Centre.  The Moyie and International  reached Nelson before 11 o'clock p.  m. The crowd which disembarked  was tired but well satisfied with  their day's outing.  When the Moyie arrived several  hundred people were on the dock  and the Kaslo band struck up its,  liveliest air and the municipal band  answered "with   "Soldiers   of   the  Queen," and "Tommy Atkins." The  K. O. K. corps and tho -Rifle Company   marched out   to   tho   main  street,   where   a    procession ��� was  formed.   The band led off, followed  by. the  military-section   and ���the  Knights in their striking uniforms  and helmets.    The Riflemen made a  most creditable appearance.   There  were 24 men in the ranks, four sergeants and two officers, lieutenants  Beer aud Day.   The men wore  the  felt plains  hats, and  carried  overcoats rolled in the Oliver kit.  They  marched    well,     performed   their  movements smoothly and accurately and altogether created a favorable impression.   Near   the   Slocan  hotel the company formed up and  was joined by the Kaslo   company  under   lieutenant Twiss.     Captain  George   Reid   of the Kaslo corps,  being the superior  officer  present,  took command of the parade.    He  formed the contingent up in open  order, after whicli a feu de joie was  fired. ���The- militiamen-wound "~ up"  with three hearty cheers for Queen  Victoria.    In dismissing the parade  captain Reid complimented the visiting on their ne.it appearance and  excellent drill.    During the day tbe  riflemen  made  their  headquarters  in a comfortable building,   where  tlieir Kaslo comrades had made liberal provision  for   tho   entertainment of the inner man.    At 7:30 p.  in, tins bugle sounded  for tho fall  in, and fche company paraded to the,  Moyie, -^  The program of sportat was divided between fche front btreet and  the recreation park,, Kaslo corralled the hose reel and coupling  races, their opponents being the  Sandon team. The foot running  races went to Nelhon men. George  Nunn took fir.-it money in the 100  yard das>h���and second in the 220  yard run. Joe Thompson took  first in the 220 yard event, winning  hands down, wifch George Nunn  second.  The yacht race went to a Kaslo  boat by a fiuke. The Myth of Nelson had .the race well in hand but  mistook a signal from tlio judges  tug to mean that thoy were around  the buoy, and went about on the  next leg. The judges apprised  them of their error and they  turned back. Despite this set  back the Myth led the procession  over the finish but the five minute  time allowance won the race for  the Kaslo boat. Asfcley's skimmer Robs did not sail, presumably  because of the sea rolling during  the morning.  The sports afc the recreation  grounds wero slow. TJie only interest was a football match between Nelson and Kaslo, which re-  The Celebration at Ymir..  The queen's birthday was celebrated   with   becoming   spirit   at  Ymir by the people of the town  and the surrounding district^ There  were foot races for the boys and  girls and grown men, all well contested, the miners' race being a feature.   The horse races were exeifc-  ing, and a ball game between a nine  from the town and a nine from the  Ymir mine and mill was  well played,   considering the ground.   The  closing event was a tug-of-war between a team chosen from the town  stalwarts and one chosen from the  heavyweights from the Ymir mine.  After a pull that lasted almost a  quarter of an hour, the town team  won.    One of the noticeable  features was the spirit of goodfellow-  \ship thafc seemed to prevail.    In the  evening a dance was given by  the  miners' union,  which was largely  attended,   Mayor Houston of Nelson was an interested onlooker at  the ball game, and candidate Fletcher enjoyed himself afc the dance.  Hugh R. Cameron and J. Pickering  Cameron, both of Nelson, were doing a little political missionary work  on the side. '   The Boys' Sports.  The schoolboys' sports onj Thursday were a great success and  afforded the small boys who^could  not take in the excursions an endless amount of amusement. The  games came off in front of fche Club  hotel on Silica street, where fully  150 youngsters had gathered to  witness and participate in tiie program, The officers were: E. Brisbois, manager; W. A.

Thn action of the local trades and  labor organizations last evening, in  unanimously endorsing the  candidature of John Houston, is the best  possible reply to the  statement of  the Nelson Miner that   candidate  Hall is receiving the support of the  labor organizations.    At the convention last evening there were ten  local unions represented, and their  delegates spoke  unanimously for a  body of some ,800 wage earners.    It  i.s nofc difficult to arrive at the reasons which prompted the local unions to endorse tho candidature of  John      Houston.       The      resolution,    which   was  introduced and  carried   unanimously,    speaks   for  itself.      It   sets    out    thafc    John  Houston   has   been   the friend  of  organized labor for several  years,  and that the wage earners of Nelson do not propose to turn  down a  man avIio has proven his friendship  in the past for  one who  only professes friendship upon the eve of an  election.       Candidate   Houston   is  now the nominee of the labor party  of Nelson j as well as of the Provincial   Party.    He   is the candidate  whom the fiiends of the eight-hour  lawr have selected as the safest man  to support   in  the  Nelsou riding,  aud they will support him, because  his defeat would be a severe blow  at organized labor.  Tiie Nelson Miner occupies the  novel position of championing two  candidates for the same office. The  Miner is endeavoring to secure the  election of candidate Fletcher, and  is boosting candidate Hall in the  hope that by splitting the labor  vote the nominee of the opponents  of the eight hour law may win.  ���THEitra-is one matter which, the  electors (of the Nelson and Slocan  riding should not forget.   The result of the election hi these two  ridings will be regarded as a plebiscite    upon   the    eight-hour    law.  True, an attempt is being made by  the interests  that arc opposed to  the eight-hour^ law to disguise this  faefc.    They would have the electors believe Sor fche next two weeks  fchafc the eight-hour law is a dead  issue. n By this means they hope to  split the labor vote and secure tho  election of candidate Fletcher, their  own nominee.    Robert F. Green iii  the Slocan, and John  Houston in  the Ncl&on  riding,  are  the candidates who arc making the race as  uncompromising advocates of fche  eight-hour law.   Thoy are nofc election converts,.   They are not strad-  dlers. and when returned can be depended upon to, prevent any tampering with the concession which  after many years of effort labor has  secured from the legislature.  36   Baker   Street  \i>  iti  Annual Spriqg Sale House Furnishings, Carpets, Oilcloths,  Linoleums, Window Shades, Lace Curtains, Portieres, Poles  Now is the time for Spring House Cleaning and replenishing new for old.

THE   DEFENCE   OF   LADYSMITH.  General sir George Stewart "White  was given a public reception by the  mayor of Capetown when he reached thafc place   after the relief of  Ladysmith, and lie made a rattling  good  speech.    He  explained what  lie did and what happened during  ���tho siege of Ladysmith.    He gives  tho Boers credit for their courage,  and for their magnificent spy sys-  'tein.    He says:    "I could not move  a gun, even if I did not give the"  order   until   midnight,   but   they  knew ifc by daylight next morning.  They had tlieir agents, who gave  them   their    intelligence .through  thick and thin.    I locked up everybody  whom   I   thought would   go  and tell, but somehow or other the  telling  went  on.     I   had   sixteen  miles of perimeter of a position to  watch, and I could not prevent the  natives from getting over it."  He described the magnificent  fight of Elandslaagte and the disaster of Nicholson's JSrek. He declared that general Joubert was "a  soldier and a gentleman with whom  I had many dealings afterward, and  whom I ahvays found inclined to  treat me up to tho very latest date  with every concession of humanity  aud civilization.'\ He thinks the  I >oers had an idea that with their  better armament..in many instances  "they would very soon knock us  out of Ladysmith and that would  be the signal for Dutchmen throughout the colony to rise and .join the  Boer forces." And he added a  queer remark, as follows : "We on  our part hoped that we should be,  -able to hold np the shield long  oiiongh a'nd strong enough to allow  Uie great sleepy" giani, who we-  .knew was afc our back, to wake up  a bit and stretch his arms out to  save his own, . We we've right, but  I believe 1 am only stating a fact  when ! say that the Boers.' with  that beautiful preparation for the  future which enabled them never fco  lose a moment, had actually got the  (j'ltcks ready within (ive miles of us  to send us ofT prisoners to Pretoria."  Ho tells of their joy on the arrival of the naval brigade.. He  says: "They came aC the nick of  time, as Jack generally does," Their  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit.on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  faces, as they hauled their big guns  into position and stood on the ramparts to see the elfect of every shot,  were enough to put heart into a  coward. But there were others  equally brave. I have been a  soldier of our queen for now nearly  fifty years and I can confidently  and sincerely say here that I never  had the honor to command so fine a  fighting force as the Imperial Light  Horse. Five of their commanding  officers in succession fell fighting in  the foremost line, but that does nofc  mean that 'men junior to them  wanted leading. Far from it I The  junior trooper would take his stand  as bravely, as independently and  without anybody near him, as if he  had been locked together in the  center of his squadron."  Continuing, he has a word  for  Tommy Atkins.    He said:    "I feel  I cannot praise the rank and file  who aided me to hold Ladysmith  too highly.    Our junior officers and  soldiers have little to look forward  to but hard knocks  aud an early  death in a campaign such as this.  1 had to hold Caesar's camp as a-  matter of brag, to prevent-the enemy's big guns from gaining a position.    The important corner of this  position was held by sixteen soldiers of the Manchester regiment,  without an officer, from 3 o'clock in  the morning until the sun .was sinking low in the west, with the result  that  fourteen  of them*lay, dead  across    their   entrenchments,   and  two  of them,  one  wounded,  held  the position until   Ave   had,   with.-  God's help, the advantage to clear  them off   with  the   help of   that  gallant regiment, the DeVonshires."  He gives another incident, as follows :   "On that same day I ordered a battery to take up a position  where I thought they could  shell  with great effect another slope of  that Caesar's camp.   The guns came  into  action under  the fire of very  much heavier ordnance from Bulwana.     During   the  action t there  was a sergeant in command of one  of the guns' sitting rather doubled  ���up on tiie trail of his gun.    A 4.7  shell took 0ft' his leg high up on the  side, and took tho arm out of the  socket, and he fell across the trail  of the gun. as they thought, an inanimate,  speechless mass.   Bufc to  the   astonishment1  of   every   man  amongst them, a voice came from  the mass inciting them oh to their  duty, aud saying :    Micro, ^you men,  roll mo out of the way and go on  working fche gun !'   That hero was  sergeant Bozeley."  There is a streak of humor in the  old man. r He spoke with pleasure  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD   OFFICE, TORONTO.

It is well perhaps that 1 should briefly stato some of the principles whicli I havo ndvocated and shall continue  to advocate until they aro incorporated in provincial legislation.

(2) 1 shall advocate the government ownership  of railways and other public franchises so far as  may be practicable, and a genoral enactment  by whicli companies desiring to construct railways may be incorporated without special legislation, and that railways bonused by the province may bo under-government control as to  their rates and subject to purchase at government option.

(���I) I believe in the principle of the eight-hour  law and shall permit no interference with the  law as it stands, and shall insist upon tho retention of tho penalty clause.  (5) I shall advocate a liberal expenditure upon  trunk roads and trails in the various districts of  the province, believing that upon such expenditure tho development of tho vast resources of  the country materially depends.  (0) I shall advocate, and if elected assist in,  the enactment'of laws for the proper adjustment  of disputes between labor and capital, by a well  digested and equitably arranged syotcrn of com-  lsory arbitration.

Gentlemen���As the unanimous choice of a duly  constituted convention of the supporters of tho  Provincial Party in tho Kelson riding, I am before you as a candidate for representative of the  Kelson riding in tho next, provincial legislature.  In this connection I desire to solicit your votes  and influence in my behalf. Believing that  every man aspiring for membership should place  himself on record on tho main issues I take this  opportunity of stating that I am in favor of legislation iiiioii the following lines:  1. Representation in the legislative assembly  should bo based on population, with such modifications a* will give sparsely settled districts proportionately larger representation than cities and  thickly settled farming districts.  '_. All legislation should bo general, aud not  special. A beginning has been made in this  direction by the enactment of laws under which  cities can be incorporated, companies formed,  and water records obtained. These should be  added to by the passage of a general railway incorporation act, and one giving municipalities  the same powers to acquire water records as are  now accorded private corporations.  X Public lands should be kept for actual settlement, and land subsidies should not be grunted  to aid. the building of railways that when, built  are owned by corporations.  4. Government ownership of railways is no  moro a theory than municipal ownership of  public utilities. Both have been tried and found  io work for tho public good when capably and  honestly managed ; but in making a commencement in government ownership of railways in  this provinco. a section should be selected in  whicli the government would have a free hand,  and not in sections where competition would be  met. -  fl. Prevention of the landing in this province  of Chinese and Japanese laborers, and the discouragement of the employment of those already  here by every fair means possible.  0. Positive, not negative, laws should only be  passed. If the principle of a law is good, tho  law should be ellective. The eight-hour day for  men working underground in metalliferous mines  is now generally accepted as legislation in the  right direction. I would oppose any legislation  that would repeal the penalty clause, or iu any  other way impair the effectiveness of the law as  it now stands.  7. To give immediate effect, by legislation, to  a resolution similar to that known as the Muloch  resolution, recently passed by the nonunion  House of Commons, which proyides for the payment of fair wages on publiovworks or works  aided by government' subsidies.1* All contractors  doing work for either the province or for municipalities should be required to pay labor the rate  of wages ruling iii the municipality or neighborhood in which the work is to lie done, the number of hours to constitute a day on all such work-  to be fixed by statute.  S. Courts have been established iu wliich individuals and',corporations arc compelled to  settle disputes, however trivial, disputes that  seldom have any bearing on the general prosperity of the community in which the disputants reside; and. courts should bo established for the  compulsory settlement of disputes between the  representatives of capital and labor, disputes  that too often aro far reaching in their damaging  ofl'ects on tho general prosperity of whole communities and districts.  D. Mining for the precious metals is.tho one in-  dustiy vhich is benefiting, dnectly or induce!Ir,  evcrj comniumt.\ in the province, and legislation  affecting the industry, m thci\.iy of taxation,  should be based on the treatment and manufacture within the province of the product of the  mines, iathcr than on the output of the mines as  at piesent.  10. The establishment of a bin can, with he.ul-  quaitcis in Biitish Columbia and not in Uie.il  llrit.iiii, to systematically luherli-e all tho  natural lesourcos and &ecnic aftiactions of tin1  province. '  11. Oiganizcdlinnincipalitics should be given  the control of thou public schools, leaving lo the  province the care of public wihools in unorganized districts and the maintenance of not m.il and  technical schools.  12. Trunk roads and trails should be built aud  maintained at public expense, and (he _o-i of  loads and trails to isolated mines -ind communities should be borne m part by the pi o\ loco.  I'd, (.Cneinl hospital-should be under gin pi n  ment coiifioi, and the government should help  nt.n'itam phjbiuans in ap.usuly settled sections  of the pnniDce.  H. The government in power should make  oflicuil announcement, for.t reasonable time befoie the legislative assembly meets, of all pio-  postd legislation. Wwo this, (lone there would  he fqwei hastily p.v.scd laws, laws which aie too  often against the public uitciust."  All ot which isiespectfullj submitted for jour  cousidctation.
