Array DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  SIGHTH YEAR.  KELSON:  FRIDAY MORNING  JUNE 1  J900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  r  li  THREE CANDIDATES SPEAK  Hall a Martinite.  ���> One of the big guns in the present political campaign was fired  at the opera house last night, when  the three candidates in the running  faced a crowded house. Tho gathering was representative and had  evidently determined in advance to  hear all tho speakers of Llie evening  patiently am! fairly. The oider  was excellent, although the audience waxed warmly enthusiastic at  times.  At 8:30 the diop cm tain of the  stage was hoisted. On the platform were seated John Toye, who  officiated as chairman, Aichie  ^ Leiteh of Ciaubiook, W. A. Macdonald, John Houston. Dr. Hall,  John Elliott and Frank Fletcher.  Mr. Toye opened' the meeting  briefly, urging upou the audience  tho desirability of preserving good  older and according each of the  speakers a fair hearing, adding that  while all could not look or think  alike they could at least agree to  li=ten patiently ��nd discuss their  conclusions later  While none of the candidates  had any cause of complaint with  the reception whicli he received, it  was manifest that the great body  of the meeting was in sympathy  witli candidate Houston. There  was applause for each of the other  candidates as they advanced to  speak, but when "candidate Houston  was called upon the applause was  almost deafening. It may also be  fairly said that candidate Houston  made by long odds the most telling  address of the three candidates,  and, though he consumed more than  the time set by the chair, he was in  sympathy with the great majority  of his heaiers throughout, which  was attested both by the frequency  and volume of applause Avhich  marked his periods.  Carsjidate Fletcher was the first  candfHate   called   upon.      He   explained in opening that lie was the  candidate of the Liberal Oonserva-  x i ve party, and then proceeded to  enlarge upon tho merits of the Conservative parfcy as an organization."  1 fe then gave a short sketch of the  \political   history of   the province  since the overthrow of the Turner  government,   tbe   ci cation of   the  Semlin   administration,   its subsequent   defeat > and   the calling of  .Joseph Martin  to form  a government.   Although a party line candidate he admitted  fchat there was  M>me   difference   of   opinion  with  inspect to the introduction of party  lines in the present contest.     This,  lie said, arose from the fact that  the    present   contest    hud    been  brought about   sooner   than   had  been   expected    and   the   forcing  of. premier Mai tin into the contest,  With, respect to his two opponents  lie said he knew where one of them  ttood���-John Houston.    Tie was the  representative    of   tho   Provincial  J'arty.    Of Dr. Hall, he was known  ��� as-. IndependentJjiboral,   but   the  spcuker said he could nofc place him  after that.    Thus  occasioned much  laughter.    With respect  to candi-  d ite Houston, he said he had been  -u ell treated by the people of Nelson.    He had served as mayor of  the eity twice, aud was now serving a third term, and it was a position to which   there   had ahvays  beeu a good  salary attached.    He  then proceeded to discuss fche standing of tho Provincial Parfcy and its  chances of success in the present  contest.   He said that there were  only fifteen P  'rovincinl candidates  in the field on Tiik Triucxii'sshowing, and only three of them were  m ell known. Supposing all of them  were elected, he said there was no  possibility of the party forming a  government. Taking up the Conservative candidates, he said there  xyeve 38 of thenr in the field, and  as an evidence of their. ,probable  success at fche polls, he read an ox-  1 racfc from the Vancouver Province  in which the,electors were' advised  to vote for the straight- Conserva-  t i ves in order to down Joe Martin.  The candidature of Dr. ,Hail was  then referred to a, second time, the  ppeaker remarking that by  some he was placed' npon the  Martin ticket and by others  upon one of the other tickets,  but as the doctor would speak  he might he able to locate himself.  Personally tho speaker thought a  man's candidature should be so well  defined that there wonld be no mistake about it. Touching the matter  of fche eight-hour law Mr. Fletcher  sit id thafc Mr, Houston had accused  him of insincerity- He said this  was   unfair because   Mr.  Houston  could not tell Avhere he stood upon'  the eight-hour law. He then explained that lasfc year he took tho  position that the law was upon the  statute books and that the best  thing to do was to make the best of  it. He did not care two straws  whether Mr. Houston said he was a  new convert or not. In his opinion  tho eight-hour law was not an  issue. He did not think that, whoever was elected, there would be  any set of men so foolish as to  touch the eight-hour law or the  penalty clause. Mr. Fletcher then  read one or two paragraphs from  his printed platform in connection  with which he said, if elected, he  would be in favor of making some  amendments to the Mineral Act.  Touching the Chinese and Japanese  labor questions he expressed the  opinion that the efforts made by  the Semlin administration at checking the immigration of the Chinese  and .Japanese had been mere waste  of time and money. As far as this  cheap foreign labor matter was concerned he thought it was an imperial question, but, if pressed, the  rights of the province would be recognized and some meant, found  whereby the Chinese and Japanese  would be excluded from the province.  When   candidate   Fletcher   had  concluded his remarks the chairman  thanked the meeting for the patient  hearing wliich had been accorded  to him and then called upon candidate Hall to address the electors.  Candidate Hall said he came before the meeting as he had been  fiom the first, an Independent Liberal.   He confessed that there had  been a great deal of misconception  with respect to his candidature and  the recent meeting of the Liberals.  It had been said that he was turned  down and that he had persisted in  running after his friends had said  that they did nofc want him.    He  said he did not believe  there was a  man in the audience who would accuse him of this.    With regard  tot  the meeting that had been held it  was an annual meeting of the Liberal Association.    He said his name  had not been before the meeting as  a candidate.   The resolution which  was voted down was that1 the association .should postpone for ten days  the matter of bringing out a candidate and that a conventionale called  to decide whether or not a party  man should be brought forward. In  the discussion   upon   this motion  fche question was   asked   whether  .the party .would be able to win if a  Liberal candidate was brought for-  ward   and   it   was *then thafc his  name was   mentioned,   the   statement being made fchat if he would  consent to stand the Liberals would  win the election.     With respect to  his candidature fche doctor said that  lie had been endoised by the Liberal Association of ymir.   He furthermore said he would be willing  to have a Libeial convention called  representative of the riding, and  if he was not fche choice of the majority of the Liberate, if they would  not   endorse   his   candidature, he  would withdraw from the contest  and forfeit his  $200. provided  Mr.  Houston would do the same.     This  was    received     with     uproarious  laughter.     Dr. Hall then devoted  himself to fche   campaign   figures  quoted by Mr. Fletcher.     He said  Mr. Fletcher had stated fchafc there  were 38 Conservatives in fche field.  He then asked Mr. Fletcher if this  included all the Turner candidates.  Mr.   Fletcher   replied thafc ifc did.  Tho doctor then said that he had  known the Turner government for  tho past 20 years since he was a  boy on his father's farm.    He then  criticized severely the Turner government's policy, especially in connection with fche grant to the E. &  N. Raihvay Company.     He added  further that as Mr. Fletcher claimed  allegiance   to   the   Turner   party  the    position     of     Mr.     Turner  upon       the      . eight-hour       law  was ,- -of      interest. *     He .  "said  Mr. Turner had stated publicly in  the present campaign that he was  nofc in favor of fche eight-hoitr law,  and fchafc he would be in favor of  repealing fche penalty clause.   Another matter,worth noting was thafc  while in some portions of the province the attempt was being made  by the Conservatives   to   conduct  the election   upon straight' party  lines, there was a distinct pledge  on fche part of the Turner Conserva*  tivos nofc to do so.   The only meaning which could be taken' from this  in the event of an alliance befcweeu  the Conservatives and the Turner-  ites was a continuance of tho old  Turner    government.     This    was  borne oufc by the fact fchafc in no  constituency   where   there was   a  Turnerite in the field was there a  throughout the province there were  18 Turner candidates and 17 Conservatives. Support given to candidate Fletcher was therefore support given to the Turner government, since the Turnerites by reason of their pledge against party  lines would swallow the Conservatives.  Touching the candidature of Mr.  Houston, Dr. Hall said he was before   the   electors   as a Provincial  Party candidate.     Personally   he  himself had always been a supporter of the Provincial Party, but this  year     he     thought    the     party  was   going out of   existence   and  things were in such a muddled state  that he thought it was necessary to  get down to party lines.   Dr. Hall  then touched upon the classification  of   Ralph   Smith   as a Provincial  Parfcy   candidate.     He   said    fchat  Ralph Smith was an  independent  labor man. The doctor further said  that Mr.   Cotton   was   not  sound  upon the eight-hour law and, therefore, that Houston could not support him.   The manner in which  the Martin candidates were classified in The Tribune did~ not suit  the doctor, and he pointed out that  on one page of The Tribune it was  stated   that   premier   Martin had  failed in his pledge to have his candidates in the field in every constituency, while upon another page of  the same issue it was shown thafc  premier Martin had thirty-two candidates in the field.   This, the doctor   said,' showed how unreliable  The Tribune was.   He might have  explained thafc   there  are   thirty-  eight seats   in   the  legislature as  against thirty-two candidates credited to premier Martin; that for four  of the thirty-two seats two Martin  men were doubled up; thafc in several others the Martin candidates  were wobblers who, like himself,  were difficult to place; but he did  not.  Touching on the nine nour resolution which came befoie the city  council, the doctor said he considered the request for nine hours  was fair and that he proposed a  resolution and supported it in the  council. He said candidate Houston  had not supported this in the council ov in The Tribune. �� Mr. Houston's reply to this had been fchafc he  had taken action, along this line before when the wharf question came  up so fchat the contractors would be  obliged to pay fche current rate of  wages fco carpenters for nine hours'  work. The doctor said he had  hunted up the minutes of the cifcy  council and he found thafc this resolution had been moved by Dr.  Arthur and seconded by alderman  McKillop. Ifc this matter he said ifc  was therefore clear that Mr. Houston's memory had failed him.  The doctor then came back to the  endorsation of his candidature at  Ymir. He said thafc he had been  endorsed hy fche miners' union and  he had the same under fche seal of  the union���fche Ymir Miners' Union.  Ifc raised quite a titter of merriment  when the limited nature of the  doctor's endorsation slipped out.  He also added thafc he had been en-  dorsedTby_the Liberal associafcion=~-  also of Ymir. As to his position  with respect to premier Martin he  said that if the premier brought in  good legislation he would support  such legislation. Ho would  do fche same thing for  fche Conservative parfcy or any  other parfcy that happened to find  itself in power. He then read a  eouple of planks from his platform  and suggested certain amendments  to the mineral act whereby assessment work could be pel formed upon trails instead of upon mineral  claims. Ho said lie was also in  favor of a survey being made of  the country showing the mountains  so that agents in London could  point out to capitalists just where  the mining properties were.-    ' '  W..A. Galliher, upon the conclusion- of Dr. >HaIl's remarks, asked  the chairman whether he would  be permitted to ask candidate Hall  one question. The candidate con-'  sented to answer the "question and  the chairman thereupon gave'his  consent. Mr. Galliher, in ��� putting  question, said he eousidered-.it only  fair to Dr. Hall, and .to all >vho  might be called upon to cast their  ballots that candidate Hall should  answer the question which he proposed to put. He then said: If,  Dr. Hall, when the house meets, a  vote of wanfc of confidence in the  Martin government is introduced,  how will you vote ?  The question staggered the doctor, bufc he made the best he could  of it. He said: The question i.s  just this. If premier Martin  has nineteen members present in  Victoria   when   the   house   meets,  Conservative    in   the    field,    and ] and     my     vote     would     either  Globe Trotter Due.  Paris, June 1.���Henry Gilbert,  the Frenchman who is making a  tour of the world on foot, is due  and is expected to arrive here on  throw the government out of  power or continue it in power aud  give ifc a chance to carry on the  government of the country; I say  I would nofc dare to say to half the  people of the province that the  government which they had shown  confidence in should be deprived of  thafc confidence. I would say we  will make terms; we ill give  Martin a chance. If, he savers I  will be the first to 'vote want of  confidence."  The answer was regarded as satisfactory.  Candidate Houston followed Dr.  Hall. He made what all conceded  to be the best speecli in his career.  It was straightforward; no trimming. It was a complete answer to  the jibes of his opporjnts aud an  ample justification of his position  before the electors. Lack of space  prevents its appearance in this issue and ifc will be published tomorrow.  W. A. Macdonald closed the  meeting. He made a good speech,  but did not touch upon the attempt at disfranchising those 489  electors, which was made by the  local Conservative Association as  supporters of candidate Fletcher,  nor the part which he personally  ..took in fighting against the placing  of this large number of duly qualified voters upon the list.  FIGHT NEAR JOHANNESBURG  Gallant Gordons.Again.  , London, May 31.���il:02 a. m.���  The war office has received from  Roberts a dispatch, dated Germis-  ton, May 30, 9 p. m., saying:  "The brunt of the fighting yesterday fell upon Ian Hamilton's column. I have sent him, as already  mentioned, to work' around to the  west of Johannesburg in support of  French's cavalry, which was directed to go north near the road leading to Pretoria. I have not heard  from French yet, bnt Hamilton, in  a report which has jusfc reached me,  states that aboufc one o'clock in the  afternoon he found.'his&tf ay strongly blocked by the enemy posted on  some kopjes and ridges three miles  south of the rand. They had two  heavy guns and some field guns and  pom-poms.  "Hamilton forthv* ith attacked.  The righfc was led by the Gordons,  who affcer cup tin ing one extremity  of the lidge wheeled round and  worked along it until after dark,  clearing ifc of the enemy, who fought  most; obstinately. The One Hundred and Fourth led on the other  flank, and would 'not be denied,-  bufc the chief share in fche action,  as in the casualties, fell to the Gordons, whose gallant advance excited  the admiration of all.  "Hamilton is now afc Florida, due  wesfc of Johannesburg, and French  is a mile further to the northeast.  The Gordons, the cavalry, the  mounted in fan tiy, and the Seventh  division aro holding the heights of  the town. The Eleventh division,  -with.-batteries H- aud G and-tho  heavy artillery, are south of Johannesburg.  "Hamilton ppeaks in highest  terms of praise of the manner in  which Bruce Hamilton and colonel  Spence of the Shropshire light infantry handled their men under  Sjnifch-Dorien's direction,"  Ottawa Still Celebrating.  Ottawa, May 34.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���For 15 hours Ottawa  has been celebrating the reported  willingness of the Boers to surrender wheu approached by lord  Roberts, and, despite the fact that  the report may have been incorrect;  the jubilation will lust several days  longer.', The Forty-third regiment,  second battery and boys' brigade  had. a grand .parade tonight,.and  tomorrow afternoon holiday will  be marked,' by', further demonstrations.  _j ~      ., '  Two Kaslo Men Missing.

They left  here some time ago to go into some  claims above Baird's Landing, ou  the Upper Duncan river, and nothing has been heard of them. Search  parties have failed to find any  trace of them. The two men were  well known here. A< lam Baird was  formerly with the K. Ii. & N. Company.    time today. Gilbert calculates that  Avhen he finishes he ���will have travelled 11,500 miles. He started from  here Feb. 19, 1895. Two thousand  pounds is involved in the undertaking, and among the conditions is  one that no money is to be asked  during the journey. He passed  through Spain, Algeria, Palestine,  Syria, Java, Armenia, Turkey and  Australia before visiting America,  Canada, Scotland and England.  Many times his life has been endangered.  WILL ENTER  CITY TODAY  Boer Rearguard Repulsed.  Germiston, Transvaal, May 30.���  3:25 p.m.���Johannesburg is practically in British possession. The  mines are uninjured." Nine engines,  a coal train aud a great quantity of  rolling stock were captured. The  remnants of the Boer learguard remained behind and fought in the  streets of Germiston, but were  easily cleared by the Grenadiers.  The troops have not yet occupied  Johannesburg. General French is  now at Landsaagte. The Guards  hold Elandsfontein and  Germiston.  The state entry into Johannesburg will take place tomorrow.  The Boers have gone to Pretoria.  The railroad from here to the  Vaal river is uninjured.  London, May 31.���4:20 p. m.���A  special dispatch from Germiston, a  suburb of Johannesburg occupied  by lord Roberts, says several hundred Boers have sought refuge in a  mine, where the British grenadiers  have cornered them and barred all  escape.  begged me to defer entering the  town for 24 hours, as there were  many armed burghers inside still.  I agreed to this, as I am most anxious to avert the possibility of anything like disturbance inside the  town, and as bodies of the enemy  are still holding the hills in the im-  . mediate neighborhood, from which  they will have to be cleared off beforehand. Rundle reports that he  attacked a large body of Boers near  Senekal on May 28th. He said his  casualties were not heavy. Brabant  reports that ou May 28th two of  his patrols, consisting of two officers  and 40 men, were cut off by the  enemy and taken prisoners."  Tupper on Yukon Question Again.  Ottawa, May 31.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Sir Hibbert Tupper,  in the house today, again discussed  Yukon affairs. He moved a long resolution, which took over an hour  by the speaker to read, and it was  to the effect that major Walsh had  used his position in the Yukon  for his own benefit, and that  he had grubstaked Indians,  sharing the claims which they  had located. Tupper's principal  evidence was that Louis Car-  bonneau, cook in*Walsh's employment, had located a claim on Dominion creekithe morning after it  had been opened, and that he got  this information at Walsh's camp.  Tupper spoke in favor of increased  salary for the judges in British  Columbia, and Laurier said the matr  ter would be considered.  Miner Wrong Again.  Editor, Nelson Tribune : My  attention has been called to the  publication in the Nelson Miner of  my nomination as a Conservative  candidate. This is a campaign lie  industriously circulated by the Fort  Steele Prospector in the^face of my  published plafcform, and in, spite of  my repeated declarations to the  contrary upon every platform from  which I have spoken during fche  campaign.

London, May 31.���The war office  has received the following dispatch  from lord Roberts, under date of  Germiston, May 30th : "In answer  to a flag of truce 1 went to Johan-  iiosburg this morning, the commandant came   to   see   me.      He  Kruger Has Fled.  London, June 1.���3 a. m.���Belated dispatches from Pretoria confirm the reports of the departure of  Kruger with his cabinet and staff  officials on Tuesday, and the selection at a meeting of citizens of a  committee to administer the city  provisionally. Since those telegrams left on Wednesday nothing  has reached Lorenzo Marquez by  telegraph fiom Pretoria. Possibly  the wires have beeu cut, although  the war office has nofc received a  word about ifc. No one in London J  harbors the idea fchat the Boer capital is nofc already in the hands of  the British or about to be there.  The possession of Johannesburg  afc all accounts, as lord Roberts has  telegraphed, is a fact. States attorney Smith did nofc depart wifch  president Kruger, bufc' remained in  Pretoria. The present; seat of fche  Boer government, according fco a  dispatch from Lorenzo Marquez, i&  probably shifted further east. The  Boers lately confronting lord Roberts appear to ha\ e gone east and  also toward the Lydenbnrg region.  The defenders of Laing's Xek,  wheu their position becomes too  warm, will probably go .straight  north. When this concentration  takes place theie will be twenty  thousand men out. for a time, ..with  scattered bands of guerrillas also.  -The press dispatches from fche headquarters of lord Roberts differ in  their estimate as to the number of  Boeis who were fighting generals  French and. Hamilton on Monday,  but they all agree that the Boers  retired and that the British casualties were slight.  Much rolling stock and seven engineers have been captured by lord  Roberts alone. The principal losses'  in fche fighting have been sustained  by mounted infantry, but the casualties have been trifling.  Generals Fronch and Hamilton  were engaged to the west of Johannesburg. The enemy fought a rearguard action, retiring from the  south to the north of the town with  pom-poms and artillery in the morn-,  ing, and withdrawing their riflemen  through the town. We captured  nine engines, and over a hundred  wagons. We succeeded in cutting  the line in three directions and imprisoning-all rolling stock in Johannesburg.- " '  Four thousand fresh troops^ will  embark for South Africa in' the  next few days.  NELSON TO BE THE SEE CITY  Proceedings of Synod.  The Anglican synod concluded its  labors yesteiday afternoon and the  meeting wound up last night with  a most successful reception in honor  of the clerical and lay delegates.  The most important feature of  yesterday's business was an unanimous resolution recommending the  bishop to designate Nelson as the  see city of the diocese of Kootenay  just organized. This his lordship did amid great applause.  A generous offer was placed before  the synod in the shape of a communication from a citizen of Nelson;  who volunteered to give sufficient  land to form a site for an Episcopal  residence. A standing committee  was formed to canvass the diocese  for the Episcopal endowmaut fund,  the Nelson members being Rev.  H. S. Akehurst and George Johnstone. Committees on Sunday observance and Sunday schools were  also appointed by the bishop.  A large portion of the afternoon :  sitting was spent in  discussing the  constitution   and   rules    of   order  which   were   passed    through   all  stages and adopted.  A telegram was drawn up and  forwarded to the governor-general  for transmission to general lord  Roberts, congratulating the latter  on the success of the British army  under his command. ' -  Votes of thanks were passed to -  the citizens of Nelson, the C. P. R.,  the rector and  church wardens of  St. Saviour's and the ladies  of the  church.  After the synod adjourned the  first meeting of the executive of  the new diocese was held. The  committee organized and transacted routine business.  The reception to the synod in  Fraternity hall last night was  attended by all the clergymen and "  many of the congregation of Sfc/ *  Saviour's church. A committee of  the ladies had the arrangements in  hand and served dainty refreshments during the evening. A pro-  grain of vocal and instrumental  selections was rendered.

If the writer will  substitute the name of candidate  Houston for that of candidate Hall  he will doubtless be able to secure  its insertion in the Miner, either in  Fletcher's Purchased Portion, or  Hall's Purchased Portion of that  journal. The Tkihune, however,  has no objection to answering  "Anti-Martinite's" question as to  Dr. Hall's candidature. In Nelson  candidate Hall is an avowed anfci-  Martiuite; in Ymir his supporters  claim to have assurances that he is  a Martinite;and yesterday morning  his campaign committee intimated  that there was a stain of Ralph  Smith in their candidate.

B  B  B  B  B  B  B  A few   weeks ago  the   Xelson  Miner proclaimed that party government [was the only solution- for  the political  problems  of - British  Columbia.    It was then championing fche cause of the Wilson Conservatives.    Within  the  pa-sfc  few  days the politicians who control the  Miner shifted their  position,  and  wifch  ifc  the Minor's policy.    They  have agreed to made a   common  cause  with  the  Turner  Conservatives.    One of   the terms of this  agreement is that there shall be nn  straight parfcy government; another  is  that the penalty clause in the  eight-hour law shall be repealed, or  the  law amended  in  such  a   way  thafc its provisions can be evaded  by contracting out. Frank Fletcher  accepts the change.    He is as Avilling to support u coalition government as he was to  restore confidence and save the country by supporting   a   straight   Conservative  government.   If any such arrangement    prejudicially    affects     the  eight-hour law, then so much the  worse for the eight-hour law.    In  hi.s platform ho says thafc ho opposed fco any change in the law; bufc  he is willing to form an alliance j  Candidate % Hali/s campaign  committee has purchased a portion  of the columns of the Nelson Miner  for political purposes. The Fletcher-  Hall combination is now in perfect  working order. On the second page  of the Miner the Fletcher committee pleads for Fletcher and slanders  Houstou; while on the fourth page  the Hall committee abuses Houston  and pleads for votes for Hall.  Ix their purchased portion of the  Nelson Miner the  Hall   campaign  committee endeavors to mislead the  electors into believing that candidate  Hall is upon the  same  platform   as   Ralph   Smith.    This   no  doubt has been attempted without  the knowledge of candidate Hall.  In view of the fact that he personally    solicited    the    assistance   of  Ralph Smith   in his   candidature,  and was refused the desired assistance, candidate Hall would hardly  presume to say that any sympathy  existed between Ralph Smith and  himself   in   the    present    contest.  Tbe answer   which Ralph ' Smith  made to candidate Hall's request  was, that'lie (Ralph Smith) was a  labor jnan  first,  and a  Provincial  Party man after, and that as there  would bo a Provincial Parfcy candi-  in the field in the Nelson riding he  would accord his support to such  candidate.     Candidate   Hall   may  paint himself   the   "workingman's  friend", bufc it is too late for him to  creep in under Ralph Smith's skirts.  The Vancouver World in its revised tabid of provincial nominations .places candidate Hall in tho  Martin government column. The  World is tho personal organ of  premier Martin and when ifc claims  a candidate it i&,on3y fair to assume  fchat some understanding exists between the candidate and premier  Joe. The World's action bears oufc  the assurances given in Ymir as to  candidate Hall's connection with  Martinism.     Ex-Queen Xiliuokalini.

On tho Political Situation.
Tho followiug letter, which was
addressed to the editor of tho Vancouver Province by colonel Waren,
should be read by all who have not
yet made np their minds what position to take with respect to tiie
division of the political parties.
Colonel Waren is not a politician,
and his views therefore are free
from party or faction bias. As a
,Libera], he has come to the conclusion that the only course for
those to adopt, who are opposed to
straight Conservative domination
in provincial affairs, is.to give their
support to the Provincial Party
candidates and the labor allies.
'The letter speaks for itself:
Editor Province,—As 1 fondly
believe that I am one of the electors
referred  to by  you in  your short
• article in Saturday's issue, namely,
•one  who  takes  a sober  and sane
•view of the present political situation in order to achieve the main
■ •issue'of the restoration of responsible government iu this province,
.and  am yet one who differs Avith
vvoii in the precise mode of obtaining that result, I hope as an old
■supporter i>£ your paper, you will
give me the hospitality of space in
your columns.    You  say that the
foundation  of Liberalism can best
'be    secured   by    supporting    the
'straight Conservative ticket, aud 1
■amJt'jlfy assured you must beliovo
this or you as a supporter of the
r ILaurier government would not take
'J hat ground.    Bnt, sir, ifcjs because
1  believe as earnestly ns you do
that Liberalism will behest secured
liy returning the Provincial Party
to power that I intend to support
t !.<" Provincial Party.    Among thab
parly there are and have been Liberals,  and  in  the coalition 'which
must necessarily come  to pass in
oider to permit  oi" a   satisfactory
government in  the province  Liberals can only hope to iind a place
in this Provincial Party.    They will
be    allowed  no   consideration  by
those who now dictate the policy of
Wilsonisiu. - The party  whicli Mr,
Carter-Codon leads has represented
and will continue to represent Lib-'
mil opinion ; ifc gives a place in its
j-aijks to a fair proportion  of Liberal cabinet representation, aud by
i I h past actions deserves both consideration jind confidence.    Jthas a
fdr  record  of  past  services  of a.
.satisfactory  order to refer to, and
though  it failed in obtaining for
"the""country-a" just-redistribution"
bill it must be acknowledged that
no  other party would have done
any better in that direction.
'   The  Wilsou "party aro soliciting
Liberal support iu Vancouver, yet
lliey affront the   Liberals by fac-.
tions opposition in other constituencies.   1 do not think  that any
.sober and sane reasoner among the
Liberals can hope for tho slightest
i-onsidewition   should   the   Wilson
party be returned.   The return of
a Conservative   Wilson  ticket   to
powttt' now will mean the return of
rt Conservative member to the Ottawa house at tho nest Dominion
election* which 1 eoiwiclpr to be a
ronMimmalion most sincerely to be
deprecated.'  Now. sir, you have a
j ight to your opinion, and you have
a right to give advice it is believed

desire to attain.    But, I tun assured,
I   am  confident in my   own  mind

Columbia will cease to be a white

eyes to the   natural   sequence of
results following a continuance of
the present state of affairs.   The
solid  phalanx" of white   workmen
who will be ruined by this Mongolian invasion are the best men to
fight this danger, and in Mr. Ralph
Smith I personally believe I see a
man who will lead the labor candidates with moderation and ability.
There is more of the broad principles  among the labor   association
than of private and personal interests.     It   is    the   personal   factor
which weakens most other political
parties who are in the field. ;>-Reas-.
oning on these lines I take the liberty of differing with The Province
in the line of action they urge, the
electors of .Vancouver to   pursue,
and I submit for your further argument the reasons I have come to
this decision. Fai,k Warbn.

Killed in the Le Eoi.
John Maikson, a Swedish miner
at the Le Roi mine, met his death
suddenly there Wednesday.  He was
engaged with his partner in" tending an ore chute  from  a  stope on
the GOO-foot level.    The finer  part
of tho debris caked together over
the   top of the "chute   forming a
bridge.   Maikson stepped upon it
with both feet, and  began  stamping to break it down.    His partner
helped   him   in  his endeavor,' out
was   careful   to    keep    one   "foot
upon     the     collar     brace.      The
bridge suddenly gave way. Maikson
being in a stooping position, fell
head foremost and was buried in the
tumbling   mass   so   that   his feet
alone   were   visible.    His   partner
fell also, but with an arm stretched
before him, and ifc was" buried to
the  shoulder.    Having  the use  of
the other arm he was able by energetic scrambling to keep clear of
the   loose   ore   as   it   rapidly fell
around him.1 He-had, however, a
very,  narrow escape for 'his   life.
Wheu John Maikson was extricated,
which was done with as little delay
as possible, it was found that fche
breath had lei'fc his'bddy.  The pressure seemed principally to be upon
fche small of his back and stomach,
ancl was-sufficient to exhaust the
lungs and keep fchem empty.

could   be«learned.    The American

Belgians are Safe.
Tihn Tsin, May 30.—The rescue
parfcy of Frenchmen and Germans
refcu'i ned to Tien Tsin today. They
confirm the report thafc the besieged Belgians are now safe afc
Pekin. They found several thousand Boxers about the ruins of Lu-
Kow-Chiao and Chang Tsin Tien
stations. The bridges have been
damaged and the rolling stock destroyed at both places. The damage done is considerably greater
than afc Fang Tai. The members of
tiie rescue parfcy saw several bodies
of Chinese tearing up the sleepers,
and in one case a mandarin was
looking on. They further report
that" the- missionaries _ and "others
escaped from Pai-Ting-Fu in boats.
The imperial raihvay director
is endeavoring to fasten the
blame for the damage at Fang Tai
on the foreign employees, principally the British, whom they say
should not have left their posts.
The foreigners, however, did. not
leave until they saw Li Kow Chio
station, five miles away, in flames
and an attack had actually been
made on an engine from Fang Tai,
whicli was running on fche Lu-Han
line in an attempt to rescue the

Germans Take a Hand.
Bmrlix,    May    31.—The
news from China has given rise to
nmch anxiety here. The German
commander ac Tsing Tan has been
ordered to act in conjunction wifch
the naval authorities of the other
powers as circumstances may require. The landing of marines at
Taku to go to Pekin was ordered.
The report from the United States
that 20,000 Russians are advancing
to help the Chinese, is baseless. No
power is sustaining China. We
know Russia will nofc separate
herself from the others. A
cable arrived today from Tsing Tan

To tiik Electors of 'ihe Nelson Hiding :
Uoiitlomcn—As the unanimous choice of a duly
constituted convention of the Mippoitcra of the
Provincial Party in the Nels,on riding, I am before you ius a candidal* for representative of the
Nolson tiding in tho ncxr provincial legislature.
In this connection I desire to bolicit jour vote?
and influence in my behalf. Believing fchat
every man aspiring for membership should place
himself on rccoidon the main issues I take thia
opportunity of stating that I om in favor of legis-
l.ition upon (lie following lines:
1, Representation in the legislative assembly
should bo based on population, with such iiioditf-
caliona as will give sparsely settled districts proportionately larger representation than fities and
thickly settled farming districts.
2. All legislation should bo goneral, and not
special? A beginning lias been made in this
direction by the enactment of laws Tinder which
cities can be incorpoiatcd, companies formed,
and water records obtained. These should be
added to by tho passage of 11 goneral railway in-A
corporation act, and ono giving municipalities
the saumpouerj to acq una water records aa aie
now accorded private coi porat ions.
.V Public lands should be kept foractual settlement, and land subsidies should not be granted
to aid the building of railways that when built
are owned by corporations.
4. Government ownernhip of raUwajn is no
more .1 theory than municipal ownership of
public utilities. Both biws been tiicd and found
to \v01kfor tho public good when capably and
honestly managed ; bufc 111 making a commence
incut in'government ownership of iailways in
this provinco, a section should be selected in
which the government would have a free hand,
and not in sections where competition would be
5. Prevention of ihc landing in this province
of Chinese and Japanese laboier-., and the discouragement of the cmploj ment of those already
here by ev cry fair means possible.
ti. Positive, not negative, iaws should only be
passed. If the piinciplc of a law is good, the
jaw should bo effective. The cight-hoiu day for
men woi king undei eiound in metalliferous mines
is now generally accepted as legislation in the
righrdirecUon. I would~oppose any legislation
that would lcpoal tho penalty clause, 01 in any
other way impair the effectiveness of the law as
ib now stands.
7. To give immediate efroet, by legislation, to
a resolution similar to that know mis tho Mil loch
lesolutloii, icconOy passed by tho Dominion
House of Commons, vt Inch prov ides for the payment of fair wages oh public woiks or vvorKH
aided by government subsidies. All contractors
doing work for either t|ip provinco or for inmiici-
pilljtifls should bo iccjuhod to pay labor tho into
of wagcx ruling in the municipality 01 neighborhood in which the work is to be done, tho number of hours to constitute a day on all such vvoik
to be fixed bj statato.
8. Courlri have been established in which individuals and emporattons are compelled to
nettle disputes, however Imihl, disputes that
seldom have any hearing on tho gonoial prospei-
ity of tho community in which the disputants 1 0-
sidil; and courts should he estuLlishcd for the
compulsory settlement of disputes between llio
1 epicscntiiiU cs ot capita! and labor, disputes
that too olten are far reac hiiig in thei" damaging
etrects on the genera! prospetity of whole communities and districts.
il. Alining for the precious mclalsis the one industry which ts benefiting, diieetlj or imliraottv,
every community in the provinco, and icEjMfUion
iirfiVcting tho industry, 111 tho\\,\y of Uxntion,
should bo bi\spd oh tins treatment and manufac-
tmp within Hit) province of (ho pioduot of the
mines, rather than on tlio output of the minus iu.
at present.
to. The establishment!-of a bureau, w ith head-
quartern "in Britibh. Colombia and not in Great
JirKain, to systematically advertise all the
natural ics'ources and scenic attractions of the
11. Organized'municipalities should bo given
tho control of thoir public schools, leaving to the
province the care of public schools in utiovga'i-
ncd districts and the maintenance of normal and
technical schools. .
12. Ti unk loads and tiails should be built and
maintained at public expense, and tho cost of
loads and tiailsto isolated mines and communities should be borne in part by the province.
13. General hospital-.should be undei government control, and tha gotra-pmept should byip
maintain phystoIann ui spaiHeiy settled *.eotio!>s
of tho piovlnco.
11. The government In power should make
official announcement, for a reasonable tune be-
fDio the legislative ai-semb)}. meets, of all pio-
posod legislation. Wore this done there would
be fewer hastily pusHOd laws, laws which are too
oftoii ngaiiiHt the public interest.
All ot which Is respectfully submitted for your
To the Electors of the Slocan Hiding:        .'.'_'
Gentlemen—With the dissolution of the legislative asscmblv, the duty again devolves upon
the electors of the Slocan riding to choose a mem
ber to represent them in the provincial legislature.
It is my intention to become a candidate at the
forthcoming election and with full confidence in
the result'I again respectfully solicit tho suffrages of the electors of tho riding.
while I may point with pardonable satisfaction
to the manner in which I nave conserved the interests of the riding and sought to meet local requirements so far as practicao'c, I 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 at the sessions of the
legislature, I havo been watchful that no vote of
mine should be wanting for any measure beneficial to my constituents, or the province as a
whole: nor have I been ^neglectful of the interests or the wage earner, but have, in some degree at least, been instrumental in placing their
fair demands amongst the principles to be advocated by a great-political party. It is well perhaps that 1 should briefly state some of the principles which I have advocated and shall continue
to advocate until they are incorporated in provin- •
cial legislation. '
(1) I am in favor of an equitable redistribution
of the seats in tho legislative, assembly, based
generally upon 'population, buti with duo regard
to. the interests and circumstances of outlying
and sparsley settled districts.'"1 ■■':
• (2) I shall advocate the government ownership
of railways and other public franchises so far as
may be practicable, and a general enactment
by which companies desiring to construct railways may he incorporated without special legislation, and that railways bonused by the piovince may be under government control as to
their rates and subject to purchase at government option.
(3) I shall do all in my powei to as=ist and support the advancement and development of the
mining interests of the piovince, upon whicli its
piospenty is so materially dependent.
(4) 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 the retention of the penalty clause.
(5) I shall advocate a liberal cspcndituic upon
trunk roads and trails in the various districts of
the province, believing that upon such expenditure the development of the vast rcsouiccs of
the country matenallj depends.
\& I shall advocate, and if elected assist in,
the enactment of laws for tho pioper adjustment
of disputes between labor and capital, by a well
digested and equitably arranged sjetcmof compulsory arbitration.
(7) I believe that Asiatic and oilier cheap
labor is detrimental to tho best inteiestsot British Coliimbi*. I shall therefore advocate its restriction so far as it may be mtia v ires of prov in-
cial legislation, and ihall assist in bimgmg such
pressure to bear upon the f« deial govei nment as
may induce that government to as?iht in tho
work, and will most emphatically insist that no
such class of labor shall beemplojed upon any
public works undei taken by t ho piovince or upon
such works as are subsidised bj.or 111 any v\aj
subject to tho oontiol of the government.
(8) I behev e that the educational system of the
provinco may bo materially impioved and <.hall
give my heartiest assistance in bringing it to tho
highest state of eiUciency bj the establishment of
iiounal schools and other instrumentalities that
mavtond to the accomplishment of that obj'ect,
(!*) I shall also advocate and assist in the development of the agnculLurul rcsouiccs of tho
prov incc.
(10) T believe that the moneys of the province
should be expended upon some broad and general
system vv liieh would ensure the greate-tamount
of benefit f 1 om such expenditure. In thisiidinfj1
I havc endcavoiedto inaugurate such a system
by having tho woik upon loads nnd UaiK placed
under a responsible head, so that the appioprla-
tion, necessarily inadequate wider existing circumstances, might bo beneficially and economically c.vpeiidcd. Yours respectfully,
Kaslo, B. C„ llaj 10th. I'JOO.

Dominion Say Celebration.
Chairman Buchanan of the celebration committee is iu correspondence with parties in Winnipeg and
A7ancouver, and is sanguine that

games, except foot racing shall
take place on the recreation grounds
on Hall street. There is enough
money already subscribed to insure
a successful celebration, but the.
finance committee expect to swell
the fund by another $1000.

progress made by the children already admitted. The school is now
affiliated to the University of Cambridge, and pupils desiring to graduate through that college are prepared for examinations held annually in December. Applications
for entrance to these examinations
should be made to the sisters early
in September so as • to allow them
ample time to communicate with
fche secretary in Londou. It is expected the new buildings AA'ill be
complete when the children return
after the summer holidays and the
sisters will then be able to accommodate a large number of girls to
any age. Accommodation is also
made for a limited number of little
boys up to the age of 10 so as to
convenience parents living out of
town. The new school will rest on
a stone foundation with Avood
frame, will measure. 80 by 35
feefc, and will toAver tAvo stories high.
The plans are in the hands of the
architect Mr. Curtis, through whom
a complete description of the building will be given later.
