 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  xxnz  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  SI  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING   JUNE 4 1900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS  DUTCH STILL FIGHT HARD  Roberts' Cautious Advance.  Nkw Yohk, June 3.���In a cable  to this morning's Tribune, filed at  London.at one o'clock this morning,  Isaac i\. Ford, takes up the war  news from South Africa, received  ab the metropolis at that hour and  discusses and draws deductions  from tho ninny conflicting versons  as follows :  ������ General Roberts' bulletins con-  lain evidence that the Dutch have  ���not yet finished fighting aud that  i here is urgent need of caution in  <������ inducting the advance. The  Highland brigade, instead of being  with Ian Hamilton as was previously  supposed, ha9 been advancing from  Ventersburg to Heilbron and  wishing the whole distance,  naval guns and field artillery  patiently biding liis time. A supposition is entertained by some well  informed men that negotiations are  in progress for the surrender of  Pretoria on similar terms to the occupation of .Johannesburg, and that  president Kruger is in communication "with lord Salisbury. These  theories are plausible, but the proof  is lacking."  CHASING AFTER AGUINALDO  Either Killed or Wounded.  Luzon, June 3.���Via Manila, Juno  ROBERTS  NEAR  PRETORIA  skir-  The  were  u-ed and the  march was  a  trying  one, with about fifty casualties.  "The persistent opposition offered  lo Colville's troops on tho immediate flank of the raihvay line leading to the Vaal, is proof that the  Fi-pe State burghers are still in the  field and bent upon harassing the  ib itish army in its northward prog-  ic-s. General Jiundle's casualties  in the operations between Lindley  and Senekal havc run up to 180,  and the press dispatches show that  the Free State troops were re-in-  forced from Bethlehem, and .that  they fought with determination  .���md skill and were driven back after a stubborn resistance. General  Brabant is reported to have sur-  loundeda small Boer force near  Ficksburg.  "Colville, Rundle.  Clements  and  llhabantnow hold  a  long lino  on  i he  eastern   (lank   from   Heilbron  through   Lindley   aud  Senekal  to  ' 'icksburg. and the Free State troops  ���j contesting  the general  wheel-  ig  movement toward  Bethlehem  ;i\d JIarrismith.  -The Dutch resistance has not ended in that quarter,  ii u iu the 'poor  white' district  of  -  (Cape Colony where general Warren  jhsib been confronted with a superior  Joipe of rebels.    The details of this  jjffahjjshow that tho icbels were repulsed after they had succeeded iu  sutrounding   Warren's   force, but  not until there had been hard fighting.  ��� Public interest centers upon the  advance line between Johannesburg  and Pretoria. French's report of  hi-* operations on Monday 'and  Tuesday did not reach general  Roberts until Thursday morning,  lie had driven the'Boers from sev-  i,i al strong positions, with 31  i casualties, and was holding his  ground north of Johannesburg in  iaccordance with general Roberts'  instructions.  "General Roberts' detailed report  ��� of the occupation of Johannesburg  was given out by the war office, at  'midnight.    Two divisions, with the  naval brigade and brigade divisions',  marched through the town, and the  Hag was raised and saluted   in  the  -presence of a crow<i.   Tho Transvaal  -<coniniandant,���Krausc,_rode_ with  general Roberts and had arranged  1 lie ceremony iu advance.    General  ���Boberts   leffc a  single  brigade   to  -guard the town and   the remaining  i roop3 encamped north of tho city  (oii the  Pretoria road.    Hamilton's  column and French's mounted force  were still further away.  "Those official details leave several points in doubt, but it is evi-  .|*>nG that goneral Roberts has not  Vbs cn drawn into Pretoria with pro-  ,mufcure haste, but is, acting cautiously and deliberately, adhering  ift plans of his own. Hamilton  ���(tid Vvntieh are' possibly carrying  out some preconcerted arrangement  with Methuen or with the British'  forces from the western border, but  more probably they are waiting for  tho infantry to come Lo their support.  ' The Pretoria dispatches havebcen  an inextricable maze of contradiction since lord Roslyn's theatrical  manifesto was issued. The capital  ],;t>* been alternately described as  empty and helpless and as strongly  defended by 10,000 Boers, and president Jvruger is left one day biding  in the Lydenberg district and is  brought back over night to Pretoria to negotiate peace and smoke  hi.*s long pipe on liis stoop. Pretoria,  news is .so untrustworthy that no  conclusions can bo based upon it.  ���'Apparently lord ISoberts' army  1lt .r Johannesburg is not over  thirty thousand strong and'he is  not in ^ hurry, but is waiting for  tlit) completion of las transport  ju rangetnents and possibly for  t cini'orcements. The public hero  l���ive been misled by lord Roberts'  _U -patches, but general Roberts is  3.���Major March, with his detachment of the 33rd regiment, overtook what is believed to have been  Aguinaldo's party on May lOtli at  Lagat, about one hundred miles  north of Vigan. The Americans  killed or wounded an officer, supposed to be Aguinaldo, whose body  was removed by his followers.  Aguinaldo had one hundred men,  major March one hundred aud  twenty-five. The American- commander reached Laboagau, where  Aguinaldo had made his headquarters since March (>bh, on May 7th.  Aguinaldo had fled seven hours before, leaving all the beaten trails  aud traveling through the forest or  along the beds of streams.  Toward evening on May 19th  major March struck Aguinaldo's  outpost about a, mile outside of  Lagafc, killing four Filipinos and  capturing two. From the latter he  learned that Aguinaldo had camped  there for the night. Although exhausted and half starved, major  March's men entered Lagat on the  run. They saw the insurgents scattering into the bushes or over the  plateau. A thousand yards beyond  the town on the mountain side the  figures of 25 Filipinos, dressed in  white, with their leader on a gray  horse, were silhouetted against the  sunset. The Americans fired a volley and saw the officer drop from  his horse. His followers fled, carrying the body.  The Americans, on reaching the  spot, caught the horse/ which was  richly saddled. Blood "from a  badly wounded man, was on the'  animal and on the ground.' The  saddle bags contained Aguinaldo's  diary and some private 'papers, including proclamations. One of  these was addressed "To the Civilized Nations." It protested against  the American occupation of the  Philippines. - There were also  found copies of senator l^everidge's  speech, translated into Spanish,  and entitled '"The death knell of  the Filipino people."  Major March, believing that the  Filipinos had taken to a river which  is a tributary to the Chico, followed it for two days reaching Tiao,  where lie learned that a party of  Filipinos had descended tho river  on May 20th on a raft with the  body of a dead or wounded man  upon a litter, covered with palm  leaves. There major March reviewed his command, shoeless and exhausted, and picked out  21 of the  freshest    men, with     whom    he  beat the surrounding "country  for six days longer, but  without finding any trace of  the insurgents. The Americans  pushed ouand arrived at Aparri on  May 29th. The officer shot was  either Aguinaldo or hi3 adjutant,  and, as the horse was richly cap-  pa risoned, ifc is a fair presumption  that it was Aguinaldo.  The soldiers of general Young,  military governor of northwestern  Luzon, captured early last month  an insurgent officer with papers revealing Aguinaldo's whereabouts.  General Young immediately organized for pui suit, giving major  March a chance to finish the work  begun hi November.  Athabasca to Reorganize.  At a general meeting of the shareholders' of the Athabasca Mining  Company held in London ou May  18th it was decided to reorganize  the company, The capitalization  will be reduced one half, and  the shares of the new company will be assessable up to  3 s. each. The directors' report  states that the money is required  for an increaso of the equipment  that will enable them to start dividends as soon as it is completed.  A Tat Job.  Ottawa, June 3.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The salary of the new  major-general to command the Canadian militia, colonel Richard  [febden O'Grady Ifaly, C. B., D. S.  O., who was appointed at yesterday's cabinet meeting, is $4,000 and  $2,000 for allowances. He was  named by the Imperial authorities.  Contradictory Humors.  London, June 4, 4 a. m,���There is  no direct news from Pretoria of  later date than Thursday evening.  General French's cavalry were then  at Irene, 8 miles.south of Pretoria,  and fighting was heard. Lord  Roberts' message about secondary  operations elsewhere and the situation at Johannesburg, dated Orange  Grove Farm, four miles northeast  of Johannesburg, show that oh  Saturday at 9:10 p. m. he was 15  miles from Pretoria. The correspondents with lord Roberts have  not got through a line about the  operations after the occupation of  Johannesburg. Official messages  continue to come through, but press  telegrams are held up, probably to  avoid to giving even a hint as to  what maybe the; pending operations.  From the other side there filters  through Lorenzo Marquez a mass of  statements,     some    contradictory,  other   obviously   improbable;   but  the   following,   purporting   to   be  facts, arriving at Lorenzo- Marquez  on Saturday  direct from  Pretoria  say that the capital was preparing  to   surrender   when   they -left on  Thursday.    The   forts" were    dismantled.   The Boer guard at Ko-  matipoort searched ali trains and  turned back most of tne fugi6ives,  among them  deserting  foreigners,'  who were striving to reach neutral  ground.    Immense Boer convoys of  provisions   are   between   Pretoria  and   Middleburg.     Fifteen . trains  are   being   sent   to Ma'chasadoran  with supplies for JLydenburg.    Pretoria is pictured by the -refugees as  in a state" of indescribable confusion.    The populace aro dismayed  and the British are expected hourly.  Some foreign attaches have arrived at Lorenzo Marquez to communicate with their governments  for orders to IeaAre.   They consider  that organized war on the Transvaal 'side   is   at an   end.   Plying  among the Boers are  reports that  the British have  been beaten back  at' Lindley.. with heavy _ loss? that  the main attack on Elandsfonteija-  failed, and lord .Roberts was forced  to  retire to   Klipriversberg;   that  the railway has been cut behind  him, south of Vereeniging, and that  a   provision   train   has been captured.  ' Without crediting any of these  Boer bulletins, everything from  the field of war behind lord Roberts points to a great effort to para -  lyze his advance east of the railway and north of Bloemfontein..  No less than four 13oer colums were  in a movement5 seemingly with this  objective. There was a commando  in1 front- of general Brabant  near Ficksburg. which faced general Rundle near Senekal, a third  occupied Lindley and pressed toward the raihvay, and a fourth  seized Heilbron and pushed toward  Kroonstadt. These operations, assuming them to have been independent, all appear to have failed.  TJie revival of the Boer fighting  power east of lord Roberts' advance, although fruitless, is a  symptom that the Boers are not  yet crushed.  In general Bundle's attack on  the entrenched Boers, several miles  east of Senekal, May 29th, the British did not see a Boer all day so  completely were they hidden. The  British infantry did not get within  1000 yards of their riflemen. The  182 losses wired by lord Roberts  were suffered by the Grenadiers  aud Scots Guards while advancing  over a level from which the grass  had been burned. The Britishers  in khaki were a conspicuous target  against the black back ground.  General Rundle -withdrew his  whole force at sundown to Zeik,  thus succeeding in drawing the  Boers from Lindley, allowing the  threatened force to get away  safely. The Jtoers sent to the  British for medical help, saying  that commandant de Villiers was  seriously wounded. General Rundle sent a doctor, with a bottle of  champagne and his compliments, as  well as a message that he would release all the Boer prisoners at  Senekal.  handicap in an exciting'finish, and  covered the! distance in 2:01 1-5.  Stevens and Kramer iu the final  heat of the quarter-mile professional  race, were the first to bring the  crowd to their feet. The former  gained a lead of ten lengths before  Kramer got under way. On the  second quarter the ex-amateur  champion pedalled for dear life.  Inch by inch, he'cut down Stevens'  lead and passed under the wire less  than ji foot ahead. One heat  of the team race between Kramer  and Eaton vs. Freeman: and Downing was really exciting.; In the first  heat, the finish was so close that  many thought l^reieman won. In  the succeeding "heats, however, Kramer finished* first in^each by a half  length.       ������"'   "���. .' :>;-'   ������/"' .

PESTILENCE  AND   FAMINE  Scenes in India.  Bom-ray, June 3.���Mr. Louis  Klopsch of New York, publisher of  the Christian Herald, who arrived  here on May 14th and started at  once on a tour of the famine-  stricken districts, has returned  after travelling through the most  sorely smitten portions ot the  Bombay presidency, including  Gujurat and Barola. Ho makes  the following statement regarding  his observations:  "Everywhere I met the most  shocking and revolting scenes. The  famine camps have been swept by  cholera and smallpox. Fugitives  scattering iu all directions and  stricken in flight were found dying  in the fields and roadside ditches.  The numbers at one relief station  were increasing at the rate of  10,000 a day.  "At Godhera there were 3000  deaths from cholera within four  days, and in Dohad 2500 in the same  period. The hospital death rate at  Godhera and Dohad was 90 per  cent. The condition of the stricken  simply beggars description. The  ail- aud water were impregnated  with an intolerable stench of  corpses. . At Amenhad the death  rate in the poor house was 10 per  cent. J?very day 1 saw new patients placed face to face with  corpses. In every fourth cot there  was a corpse. The thermometer  read 115 in the shade. Millions of  Jlies hovered around the uncleansed  dysentry patients.  "I visited the smallpox and cholera wards at Viragam. All the patients were lying on the ground,  there being no cots. Otherwise  their condition was fair.  "I can fully verify , the reports  that vultures, dogs and jackals are  devouring the dead. Dogs have  beeu seen running about with children's limbs in their jaws. . The  government is doing its best, but  the native officials are hopelessly  and heartlessly ' inefficient. But  with the famine, the plague and  the cholera the condition -of- Bom.-,  bay presidency is now worse than  ifc has been at any previous period  iu the 19th century. Whole families have been blotted out. The  spirit of the people^is broken, and  there may be something worse to  come when the monsoon breaks."  Now,  exceptions.   Line up there,  you, there, pass the hat."  The dignified gentleman indicated  by effective gestures with tho rifle,  walked bareheaded up and down  the line and collected. Then he was  ordered to chip in himself.  A sound of voices aud hoof beats  interrupted an examination of the  valises, but it turned out to be a  stageload of Chinese. The other  passengers were ordered to look the  other way while this load was beiug  held up. D  An express wagon, with the mail  and express box, arrived next, and  the driver was compelled to put  down the box and his lunch. His  work was well done.  Two stonecutters were ordered to  mount the cavalry horses and" ride  back. The stages and wagons were  ordered one by one to move on with  a "Now, you," and a'persuasive gesture of the rifle. They moved on.  The men on horses rode back and  informed the advance guard of soldiers. They hurried forward, but  practically unarmed, since their  weapOns were not loaded. They  were held off until "Kid" inade his  escape, leaving the express box unopened, a box containing clothing  for a disguise, cartridges and field  glasses.  From three stages the robber collected about $250.  Except a bag and a bit of paper  on which is printed in lead pencil:  " The Black Kid," and written "The  Lone Highwayman," he left no  trace.  Among the passengers robbed  wa.s professor Benjamin Tde  Wheeler,president of the university  of California.  STOOD OFF THE CAVALRY  "Black Kid's" Daring Deed.  .    '  Wawona, June 2.��� The "Black  Kid," single-handed, armed with a  magazine rifle, about 10 o'clock  this morning held up and robbed at  ono time two wagons and three  coaches of the Yosemite Stage-&  Turnpike Company, carrying 27  men and five women: then, without  firing a shot, stood off a small  squad of ' United States regular  "cavalry and escaped into the woods.  The, first stage left Raymond  aboufc 5 o'clock, a. m., carrying nine  stonecutters for Fish camp. Tho  second regular passenger stage leffc  at 7, preceded hy a troop of United  States cavalry on their way into  Yosemite. In tills stage were the  Misses Atherton of J���nglaud, Mr.  aud Mrs, A. M. Drake of St. Paul,  Mr. am!-Mrs. Thomas II. Griflin of  S,m l^rancif-co. Mr. and Min, JIarfc  of Berkeley and S. H. Bobanji of  Bombay. The driver was B. II.  Gillespie. ,  Tho stage overtook the cavalry  Daisellos and began the long ascent to Grub Gulch. About three  miles from tho latter place the road  turns straight across a little sand  flat wi tii a low bank to the right  and a slope to the left covered with  bushes and a few small trees.  As the stage swung slowly around  the curve its passengers saw the  first stage drawn out to tho leffc of  the road, two cavalry horses tied  to the wheels; next the passengers  lying underneath a tree; then on  the bank on the right a solitary figure with cocked revolver, grasped  in a blackened hand, 'with a mask  mado of a blue cotton handkerchief  wifch white dots, moving gently in  the wind, and covering the whole  of his face except pale blue eyes  circled with black, it is hard to  understand how one man could hold  up 27 unless one happened to be  one of fche 27. The "Jilack Kid"  has peculiarly effective gestures  with his rifle, .so persuasive thafc  his orders ure immediately and  carefully obeyed.  "Climb down, there: hurry up: no  Cavalry Wanted.  New York, June 2. * A special to  the Times from  Washington  says:  Wheu  generals  Otis   and  Schwan  arrive here there will be a  conference between  them  and  secretary  Root in reference to the  question  of   sending   more    troops   to   the  Philippines.     General   Mac Arthur,  general   Otis'   successor, has been  urging   for   some   time   that   he  should " have more cavalry.     The  war department is now convinced  fchat his request * should be   complied wifch, but nothing will be done  until secretary Root  has  obtained  the   views   of   generals   Otis   and  Schwan.   Three cavalry  regiments  will be sent.   Tbe war department  has no idea yet whafrregimenfcs will  be selected. ^This is one of the points  on  which the advice of   generals  Otis and Schwan will be sought.  Ifc is quite   certain   that they   will  not be sent until after the  middle  of J une.   The' department would,  if possible, to send one of the regiments now in Cuba.    It  is  considered desirable that the soldiers  in  the Philippines should be as far as  possible men accustomed to service  in the tropics, who have nothing to  learn, to the end that the campaign  may be as sharjj aud short as possible.    But no   regiments   can   be  taken from  Cuba until after the  elections afc the earliest, and the  elections will not take place until  Ju��e_10._3Vhen_the_reguIars_are_  sent it will be possible to begin the  sending home of volunteers and the  probability is that three regiments  will   be  sent   home at once,   the  cavalry taking their places.  ,    Three of Them Caught.  Ni:w York, June 4.���The poller,  at an early hour this morninjr,  chased four housebreakers over tLe  roof tops in the J 3th East Side tenement district. Ono of the fugitives is dead, one buffering from  concussion of,the brain, another is  under arre.st, and the fourth made  his escape. The men wero discovered after they had broken into a  vacant store and were attempting  to get into a clothing store. The policemen chased them up the tenement  hallway and over the roofs. Three  of them attempted to ^ make a descent to the ground by means of a  lofty clothes pole standing close to  the building, aud at least two of  them fell from aboufc the third  story store to the paved  alleyway        below. Alexander  Crow, 21 years 'old, was killed instantly and William Dickson was  found unconscious. It is thought  the other man fell on fche top of  these two and was not injured. He  made his escape.

TRAGIC ENDOTA BAD COOK  Cold Blooded Crime.  Nkw York, June 3.���Mrs. Mary  Naughty, 31 years old, was shot  and killed last night by her stepson, Charles Naughty, 21 years old,  at her home at 53 Chambers street,  C  Newark. The murder was witnessed by Edward N. Naughty,  husband of the dead woman, and  father of the murderer.  'The-murderer's-'.mother died in  December 1898, and his father, who  has been employed for thirty-six  years in the zinc '-works at New  Utica, engaged several housekeepers  at different times, to all of whom  the son took objection, quarreling  with them because they did not, as  he complained, cook as 'well as" his.  mother. " ��� ���  Last December his father married  Miss Mary Garret/., and  installed  her as mistress of the house.   The  soon soon began to find fault with   ���  the    step-mother,    and   especially  criticized her cooking.      Yesterday  he angrily complained of his coffee  at    breakfast    and    words    were  passed.   The son says that his stepmother threatened to fix coffee for  him " for good *'.    He stopped at; a  store in the afternoon and bought  a  cheap  22  calibre  revolver. '  At  supper another  quarrel arose and  the  father interfered  and  quieted  his son.      After supper the son left  the   house   and   returned   with a  pitcher  of   beerr  He   poured  out  three glasses on, tlje table and- then;  walked into an adjoining  room reappearing immediately after  holding the revolver  by  his  side.    Hi.s   -  step-mother was sitting at the end  of the table nearest him, and, as he    <  passed her, he suddenly thrust  the  point of the revolver  into  her ear  and fired.    She  fell   over   and  he  fired a second  shot into  her right  ear.   The act was done so quickly  that the father had no time to pre-5  vent it.   He grappled with his son,  whoj broke away, carrying the pis-  t d! and ran from the house.  The fon appealed later at the  fourth precinct police station and  gave himself up. The revolver was  stained with the woman's blood,  whicli had gushed out afc the first  sjhofc. The murderer is'a good looking intelligent youth. Ou Friday  the father transferred to his wife  two houses he owned, and it is believed ifc was the knowledge of chis  that prompted the murder.  Relief in Johannesburg.

Upon the platform  candidate Hall amplifies the term  good government by assuring the  electors thafc he would support any  old government.  Candidate Hau.'s "friends," who  edit their Purchased Portion of the  Nelson Miner, question their candidate's veracity. Dr. Hall has repeatedly stated thafc he unwillingly  became a candidate. The association of "friends" deny this and  state that Dr. Hall willingly became a candidate.

The  war, is at  an  end  and he hits refcurnod  to^the normal  conditions of shopkeephig and horse  racing, and wonders why he has  been so deeply interested in military        transport.      frontal     attacks and turning movements.   So  jaded has he become, that conquest  of territory, the evacuation^of hostile capitals and the guttling flight  of Boer commanders are repeated  with perfect calm, as  ordinary  incidents in the business career of the  empire.

Captain Scott   is best  known   for   his   invention   of tho  naval gun mounting, by which  he  saved Ladysmith; bufc he did much  more than this, for  he  devised  an  elecfci ic   signalling   apparatus   by  which communication could be kept  up with Kimberley long before fche  siege was raised.   Afc the same time  he  was" commandant   at Durban,  the  largest   to\vn   that  has   been  placed under martial law for many  years.    During the four months he  Was employer!  he was  responsible  for internal organisation and external defence.    lie had to insure the  good government of the town, keep  au     eye     on    the   prisoners     of  war, look out for suspicious persons,  examine   passengers to   and   from  Delagoa Bay, lend an attentive ear  in all cases of consular interference,  control tho press, censor letters and  telegram'5, and carry out the routine work of colonial   administration,    Yefc he found time to get the  naval gum to the front; and  liis  last act before sailing in fche Terrible was to design a mounting for  the now famous !.7-inch gun without limber, but with three wheels,  the third wheel being unshipped  when firing at high angles of elevation, and shipped again when the  rapid movement of the gun was  rendered necessary.

Church Insurance.  What is regarded as a moral proposition is that of the Episcopal-  iiinsof New Jersey to go into the  Itie insurance business on the mutual plan. It is not so novel as  Mjmc. of the comments indicate, as,  we believe, a mutual insurance plan  was supported by one of the denominations of Pennsylvania for  many years, although the name has  disappeared from the state insurance repoits.  .Mutual insurance, propei ly organized, and conducted with business capacity and integrity, ought  to be an important factor.  While many of the .schemes have  fai ed for lack of one or more of  of these qualities others have had a  long and and successful career.  But it is clillicult to see why it  should be organized on denominational lines, any more, than-why  the members of a single church  should organi/.o for a co-operative  supply of tlieir refined petroleum  or sugar. The organization of  mutual insurance in certain lines of  business is moro rational, as the  members of each line of business  have actual knowledge of the conditions of their business and the  values of property destroyed, which  are important factors in the. determination of risks and the adjustment of losses. There is more prospect of successes in Mr. Atkinson's  "factory mutuals" than in New  Jersey "church mutuals."  This, however, deals with the  antecedent probabilities merely. If  the New Jersey Episcopalians make  a success of denomination insurance  other States and churches will be  glad to follow their example.  THE   SAME   OLD   SPIRIT.  Salt Lake Tribn lie.  In   1703   the    French   "Citizen"  Genet came here in the interest of  the   French    revolutionists.     His  avowed pu rpose was ; to induce or  force the United States to aid the  revolutionists.       The    Democratic  party    received   him    Avith   more  honors and toadyism than they are  now expressing oyer the Boer commissioners.    He  had an  interview  with  the president of the United  States,    and   the    account    says :  "Genet presented ,his credentials to  Washington iu   person,  April   19,  1793,  and found himself in an atmosphere   of   the   most   profound  dignity.    He felt his own littleness  as a mere political enthusiast while  standing before the representative  of true democracy and of the soundest principles of the American republic.      He   withdrew   from   the  audience    abashed   and    subdued.  Hih  feelings were readily soothed  in  the great banquet hall  of his  friends, where his ears were greeted  with the Marseillaise hymn and his  eyes delighted with the tree of liberty  on the table.    In his axJpeals  to the people his conduct became  so unbearable that Washington le-  quested the French government to  recall  him.    On  the  22nd   day of  April,  1703, Washington   issued a  proclamation  of neutrality,  which  the Democrats   of that   day  denounced as 'an edict of royalty.' "  It seems   it has been  so   always.  Washington had refused to become  a kiug.   He had helped the others  organize   a   form   ot"   government'  which guaranteed absolute political  and personal freedom to every man  iu the republic, but when he refused  to take part in,the Preach revolution, the same class of men that  foicea\ president McKiniey to go to  war  with   Spain,   and   which has  abused    him    without   stint   ever  since, forgot iu a minute all  that  Washington had clone, and when  he, iu furthering a policy which he  believed was best for the country,  issued al proclama tion of neutraity,  it_wa^ at_onco_denounced as_"an  edict of royalty,"   It is the same  old spirit,   but   our   republic   has  giown  great   notwithstanding   it,  rather, in spite of it.

They will find no one ready  to act. able to act or wishing the  administration to act, and their report to the South African republic  will at least bring peace nearer by  showing    the   hopelessness    of   a  struggle protracted as long as honor  demands and which should not be  continued in wanton  desperation.  Meanwhile, since nothing is to be  done and no one really wants anything to be done, it appears likely  to be increasingly difficult for any  Democratic   politicians   to   delude  even themselves into believing that  there is political capital to be made  iu urging action toward intervention no one approves, and which no  administration has ever taken in  this country or ever will take, for  non-intervention in quarrels with  which we   have   no   concern is a  fundamental principle of our   national foreign policy.  Edison's New Miners' Lamp.    ,  "A three-candle power incandescent lamp has beeu perfected by  Thomas A. Edison, Jr., the use of  wliich, it is ,claimed,;.- will'. prevent  colliery disasters,"- says the New  York Times. "The law governing  the inspection of mines in Pennsylvania, makes it mandatory that the  lighting thereof, ''������whether portable  or stationary, shall have the approval of the chief of the inspectors,  for on his judgment and intelligence is supposed to depend the  safety of thousands of lives and  millions of dollars in property. Application has been made to James  E. Roderick, chief of the bureau of  mines in Pennsylvania, to order the  use of the Edison system in place of  the oil and gasolene lamps. Edison's  invention is a primary battery, in  which the pots, carbons, aud all  connections are fixed. A box weighing four and a half pounds will  maintain a three candle power lamp  for ten hours at a cost of two cents.  A bevel-plate glass covers the lamp.  Should this glass be broken by accident or design, the light is extinguished immediately. Not tho  slightest heat is evolved, and it is  impossible to ignite either vapor or  substance. From 1SS7 to 1800 the  number of miners who lost tlieir  lives in the United States through  accident was 81-10, and fire damp  was responsible for a large number  of them. In 1800 tho deaths exceeded 700. There 'are employed;  daily in the mines of this country  nearly 210,000 persons."  League Games.  Kansas City 2, Minneapolis 2.  Milwaukee 0, Cleveland 1.

SLOOANURIDING  To tho Electors of the Slocan Hiding:  Obxti,k.mk.v���With the dissolution of the legislative axsoiublr, the duty itgatn devolves upon  the electors of the .Slocan riding to choose a mem  her to represent them in the provincial legislature.  It is my intention to become a candidate at the  forthcoming election and villi full confidence iu  the result I again respectfully solicit the suffrages of tho electors of the riding.  While I may point with pardonable satisfaction  to the manner in which I have conserved the interests of the riding and sought to meet local requirements so far as prncticab'c, 1 havo earnestly  endeavored to forward legislation in the interests  of the whole province, and such as would tend  toward its material development.  Constant in attendance nt the sessions of tho  legislature. I havo been watchful that no vote of  mine should be wanting for any ��� measure bene-  llcial to my constituents, or the province as a  whole; nor have 1 been neglectful of the interests of the wage earner, but have, in some degree at least, been instrumental in placing their  lair demands amongst the principles to be advocated by a great political party, it is well perhaps that 1 should briefly state sonic of the principles which I have advocated and shall continue  to advocate until they are incorporatcdin provincial legislation. .;.'  ;ir  (1) I aril in favor of an equitable redistribution  of tho seats in tho legislative-assembly, based  generally upon population, but with due regard:  to the interests and circumstances of outlying  A FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.

Tho Boer envoys accomplished  nothing yesterday in their interview Avith secretary Hay, except to  give the head of tho stalo department tin opportunity of showing,  first, thafc the United States hud  done more for the Boers than any  other country : second, that it was  thi' only "country -which had acted  under The Hague convention in proposing mediation, and, third, thafc  it had done alt that could be done  under the traditional policy of the  United States.  This demonstration, both of the  readiness of the Unites States, if it  AA'ere feasible, to aid in ending the  war by mediation and of the determination of fche present administration to depai fc in no Avhit from the  settled conduct of the government  of the republic at such a juncture,  from president Washington down,  aviII not end the mingled cant and  claptrap with AA'hich in various  quarters politicians and newspapers  are urging intervention, but it Avill  convince the sober opinion of the  country and reassure the American  public.  The record is clear. The policy  and practice of the administration  has the unmistakable suppoit of  the people Avithout distinction of  party. The senate refused to be  misled yesterday by sentiment or  by platitudes. The general public  will be as wice.   The Boer envoys  To mi: En:croRs ov tub Sr.i&os Ridim.:  Gentlemen���A<? the unanimous ihoicc ol a duly  constituted convention of the sup^oilcis of the  Pro\incial P.uty in tho Nelson nding, 1 am before j on us a candidate forropicsentatnoof tho  Nelbon ruling in the tio\t- prov.nci.U legislative.  In this connection I do-siro to solicit jour votes  and influence in inj behalf. IJcllewng that  a\ cry man .ispiiinjj for membership should plate  himself on lccoidoti the main issues! take Hub  opportunity of stating that I am in fa-, cr of legislation upon the following lines:  1. Rcpieseiitelion in the legislative assembly  should be based ou-population, vuth such inodill-  catjons as will give sparsely settled distiicts pro-  poi lionately larger lepiesenUtion than cities and  thickly settled fanning districts.  2. All legislation ihould be general, and not  special. A beginning has been made m this  direction by the enactment of laws under which  cities can bo ineoipoi.itcd, 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 accoided pii\ate corporations.  S. Public landsihould be kept foractual settlement, and land subsidies should not he granted,  to aid the building of lailwajs that when built'  arc owned by corporations.  1. Govei nment ownership of railwnjs is no  moie a theory than municipal owneislnp of  pubhi utilities, ltotli have boon tried and found  to work foi tho public good when capably and  honestly managed ; out m making <i coimncncc-  nfent in government ownership of lailwajs in  this province, a. section should be selected in  which the government would have a free hand,  nnd not in sections wheie competition would be  met.  5. Prevention of the landing in this province  of Chincso and Japanese laboreis, and the discouragement of the emplojment of those already  hcie by every fan* means possible.  0. PiMlnc. not negative, laws -.hould only he  passed. Tf the principle of a law is good, the  law iiliould. bo olicoUve. The eight honi day for  men woi kingunduigi oiiud m tuctullifciuus mines  is now gencially_ accepted as legislation in tho  "right direction. I would oppose any legislation  that would repeal the ppnalt} clause, or in anj  olhei way impu'*r tho cflectneness of llicl.iw as  il now stands.  7. Toghe immediate cited, hj legislation, to  a roMilulioa similar to thatkuow u as the llnluc h  icsolution, reeentlj passed hy the Dominion  Ilou-tiol Commons, wInch provides foi the p.iv-  isienf of fair wages on public woiks ov woiks  aided by government subsidies. All (onti actors  doing w ork for either the province or fur municipalities should be icquired to pnv labor the laic  of wages ruling in the municipality or neighbor-  hood in which the work is to lie done, tho mini-  bur of hourH to constitute a day on nil such w oi k  to be fixed b.v statute.  8. ( ouits have beon established m which in-  div idimls and corporations are ��� onipi'iU'd to  settle dispute^, however trivial, disputes that  hcldom have any heal ing o,i thu genoral pi o .per-  ity of tho community in which thu disputant* u-  M(Ic; and courts should bi established fur I hi)  compulM,i> hcttlcment of disputes between the  iepic-entailvus ot capital and labor, dwpute*  that too often aie t,i.r reaching in Ihuii damaging  tiflocls on the genotal piospenty of whoic communities .md d.slncK  !t.

Organised municipalities should be given  the control of their public hchools, leaving to the  proMiice thccaie of public schools in itnoigan  f/ed dist nets and the maintenance of noi mill and  technical schools.  12. Ti link, roads and tiails should be built and  maintained at public expense, and (lie tost of  ro.tds.and tiails to isolated mines and communities should be borne in pact by the pi ov nice.  13. (iciu'i.il ho-ipitais should be under govei n-  ment contiol, and the government should heln  maintain phjMciansm bp.n-.ely settled set tions  of the province.  M. The government in power should make  official announcement, for a reasonable time be  foie the legislative ns-embly ineels, ot all pio-  posed legislation. AVeic fins donfe there would  be fewer hastily passed laws, laws winch aie too  often againt-t tho public mtei est.  All ol which is lespcelfull} submitted fori our  consideration.

The Nelson ball team scored another victory over Rossland yesterday, when they snatched a victory  from apparent defeat and won out  by 1;T runs to 11. The game might  have been more scientific, but it  could not have been more exciting  from the standpoint of tho spectators and particularly from the point  of view of the 200 stalwart Xelson  rooters who were forced to sit  quietly while the Rossland team  called up seven runs to Nelson's big  cipher, and then saw Nelsou pull  the game oufc of fche lire and win by  ji satisfactory margin. The outcome was particularly unsatisfactory to the Rosslanders, who had  backed their team to win, for the  Nelson sportsmen carried home  with them over $1500 in hard cash.  The special traiu on the C. P. R.  leffc within a few minutes of the  announced hour, and every, seat m  the four coaches was occupied. A  number of ladies were aboard aud  not a few of then proved to be admirable fans when it came to cheering the local team to victory.  Everyone wore the club colors.  Rossland was safely reached after  a fast trip, and the excursionists  had an hour or two to do the town  before the game was called on the  ball grounds at 2:40 o'clock.  Ab least 1500 people were on the  grounds when the match started,  tind the Nelson rooters rooted with  might and nia'iri to balance the almost overwhelming enthusiasm of  the supporters of the home nine.  Nelson went to bat first, but failed  to score. Houston secured first,  but MeLeod^ 'Rockenfield raud  Waters went '������' out in the order  named on infield plays. Then  Rossland came to the plate, and  before they were retired had placed  four riuis to their credit. This was  a wet blanket for the Nelson rooters, and for a time little was heard  from their section of the grand  stand. Nelson went to bat again  and secured another goose-egg,  while Kossland sent a man over  the plate in their end of the  inning*. The same performance  ���was repeated in the thiid. with the  vaiiation that Kossland made two  runs. The score now stood Rossland 7, Nelson 0, and the visiting  rooters had entirely subsided. The  Nelson boys had quit talking and  one sport who went over armed .with  an enormous megaphone threw his  instiument away and felfc in his  waistcoat to see if his return ticket  was safe. Twenty minutes later  Ite was looking for that megaphone  but failed to locate It.   -  Nelson went to bat in tho fourth  determined to change the aspect; of  affairs, and they did so. Four runs  wero tallied on Nelson's side of the  sheet when the side was retired,  and the Nelson side was rooting  again with renewed enthusiasm.  Rossland was blanked iu its end of  the fourth.  Nelson scored another run in the  first of fche fifth and Rossland was  blanked. The spirits of the Nelson-  ites were gradually rising and on  this they produced fche remains of  their wads and offered wagers  which were nofc taken any too  freely.   The Rosslanders were be-  BROWN  There is always a best way  to do everything, be it to  to' boil an egg. The same  applies to watch repairing  and we" have the best way.

The nine had  quite recovered its nerve and was  hitting freely, while Rosslaiid was  becoming nervous. The result was  that three Nelson men crossed the  plate and Rossland was blanked.  Nelson now had fche floor to itself  and the visitors waxed eloquent in  their joys. In the eighth Nelson  scored a quartette of runs and  clinched the victory. Rossland  made a spurt but stopped after  three men had tallied, making the  score 12 to 10 in favor of the  visitors. The ninth innings only  made Nelson's win more decisive,  three Nelson and one Rossland  player scoring; total Nelson 15,  Rossland It.
