 S��^  '::?^^^-i^V^^iS?iP^  &isMS?s^  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING  MAY 28 1900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  DISTRIBUTION  OF TROOPS  Next Fieht at the Band.  ���New: York, May 27.���At 1 o'clock  this morning, Isaac X. Ford cabled  tho Tribune from London  reviewing the South African situation  as  follows:   "The news from the front  comes slowly when there is only a  single wire from  general  Roberts'  ���camp to Kroonstadt and Capetown,  mid   all   details   of  the  campaign  have  to  pass  over  it.    Whenever  the   cart halts after a long day's  march  this  wire  brings  the commander into touch with Newcastle,  Bloemfontein, Kimberley, Vryburg  and   Mafeking,   and   the   complex  /business   of every   branch  of   the  service   is   transacted through it.  ��� Naturally the special correspondent  can make little use of it for press  messages,    and   general    Roberts  himself counts  his  words  in  communicating   with   the   war   oflice.  For   these  reasons  there  are   few  details of the British advance across  the Vaal.    The passage of the river  was   iirst   made   oil    the    queen's  birthday by the left  wing, consisting of French's mounted force, two  cavalry   brigades   and   a  body of  ���mounted infantry, which had taken  the '"Potchefstroom     road     from  Kroonstadt,     turned     the      Boer  position   on   the Rhenoster  river,  diverged from the main  road eastward, galloped through, Vredefort  and crossed the Vaal on Thursday  near Parys.  "The occupation of Vredefort is  confirmed officially from Pretoria,  but general Roberts' bulletin carries French's troopers nine miles  further and over tho Vaal iuto president Kruger's territory. There is  no evidence that the passage of the  river was seriously opposed by the  Boers.  **Loid Roberts, with two infantry di visions and a mounted force,  had been following _ the lailway  from the Rhenoster river, aud early  on Saturday morning was at Wol-  Avhooek, 3 5 miles fiom the Vaal,  n lule his scouts were at Viljoen's  JJnffc.  ''General Hamilton, wifch Broad-  ���nood's cavalry biigade and an in-  iantry division.had been advancing  steadily on the light irom Heil-  bion on the load to Heidelberg, and  yesterday was at Bosehbank, a  place identified with difficulty on  the maps, but apparently not far  iiom Bosehkop, in the Transvaal.  =. "From Pretoria tliere is an offi-  c ial report that Dewet has re-aecu-  )jied Heilbron. This bulletin, if  coirecb, proves the Free State commandoes have not retieated across  the Vaal with Kruger's burghers,,  bufc are hovering^ on the ilank and  rear of the British right wing and  i-eekiug to capfcme convoys. General Roberts' own report is. that the  Boers aie no longer south of the  Vaal.  "A summary of the situation  places "general Roberts'"celitre^at  Viljoeus Diift on Saturday, forty  miles distant, with French in the  Transvaal to the west, threatening  Potchefstroom and turning the  Boer position at Vereeniging aud  Hamilton to the east, menacing  Heidelberg, Dispatches from Pretoria refer to a British advance upon  ischoeman's Drift, but this was  clearly a feint, as Lhe Vaal was  crossed further east, near Parys.  Thp burghers of Potchefstroom and  elsewhere were reported to be arming in defence of their homes and'  this was an indication' there would  " be severe lighting before Johannesburg .could betaken. Three railways from,.Laing's Nek, Viljoens  and Potchefstroom, offer the Boer  facilities for massing, their commandoes in front of Johannesburg  and there will probably be a battle"  -next Ayeek for-the possession of the  .Hand."- . '   ,  "General Roberts' concentrations  are unknown, but he must have  called up a considerable body.of reserves .for holding Kroonstadt and  "guarding his extended-lines of com-  - munication.. Methuen.'s division is  somewhere ~ on the left flank, and  general Rundle in the east has occupied Ficksburg annd is slowly ap-  proaehing Bethlehem.  "There is no change in the situation at Laiug's Nek, and nothing  fresh from Natal except colonel  Bethuen's account of the reverse  near Vryheid, which he attributes  to the impetuosity of captain Goff  iu attacking an intrenched commando.  "Commandant Snyman is reported as halting ten miles east of Mafe-  king and .attempting to block the  road to Pretoria, over which Jamie-  son's raiders passed.  "There are fresh' accounts of dissensions and panic at Pretoria, but  reports that president Kruger is  suing for peace on any terms obtainable are obviously premature.  The Transvaal burghers have made  too plucky a fight to surrender  without a brave stand somewhere  in their own territory, and president Steyn will probably succeed,  in keeping his scattered commandoes together in the Free State until  his allies are defeated."  PREPARE FOR A LAST STAND  ADVANCE IS  IRRESISTIBLE  Boers Outmanoeuvred.  . Grootvleit, twenty-three miles  south of Vereeniging, May 27.���  Lord Roberts' northern advance  steadily'continues, and today "the  Transvaal hills were sighted.  General French has secured an excellent flanking position on the  northwest. There is something  irresistible about this advance. The  troops have been splendidly handled  and the Boers completely outmanoeuvred. They have been  forced to abandon their positions  at the first approach of the British  flanking force, which has made a  determined resistance at the Vaal  impossible. Many Transvaal burghers are now trekking homeward,  and it is safe to say the most irreconcilable Transvaaler ��� at last  recognizes the hopelessness of the  struggle.  Most of the farms in the northern  part of the Free State, where the  ties of blood with the Transvaalers  are strongest, have been - deserted.  This section has been flooded with  false tales of Biitish cruelty, reports of the burning of farmhouses  and the eviction of women and  children, in the hope"* of inducing  the burghers to lemain with the  commandoes, but the evidence all  points now to the existence of a  permanent feeling of enmity between the Transvaalers and the  Free Staters, each accusing'*the  other of treachery and cowardice.  It is regarded as unlikely that'  the Transvaal government will go  to Lydenburg. where food is  scarce.  A body of Boers are trekking  hard towards Vereeniging from the  direction of Heilbron.  The condition of the Britibh  troops continues excellent, although  the cold'nights are very trying.  They are able to march three miles  an hour.  The Boeis have destroyed every  bridge and culvert. They are said  to regai d Klip river berg, north of  the Vaal, a<._ a position of gieat  strength, and talk of making themselves impregnable there."  It is reported thafc the population  in Johannesburg is in a high state  of excitement. The Boers who are  passing through northward threat  cn to blow up the mines. It would  not be surprising i^jthey carried  out the~threat.  With Eloffs Good Wishes.  Makbking, May 21.���The Boers  to the south retired from Kunana,  ten miles east of Maritaua, and are  falling back further on Barpilsoan.  The Boers routed here rallied a few  miles oast of Potfonteiu. A cornet  who failed to support commandant  Eloff in the latter's attack on Mafeking iu which Eloff was captured,  wrote a letter sympathizing with  him. Eloff replied that he ,hoped  the devil' and all his angels would  torment him eternally, and that he  and 'his, would rot.'    -  Boers Bally at Potfanteia!  -Maj��:kkino, May 27.-���-The Boers  who were routed have rallied a few  miles eastat Potfontein, well within  the British border. ��� There is no  sign of the enemy- to the north.  Colonel Plumer's linemen have received a wire saying that a train  will arrive tomorrow. - A system of  daily runners-to the'south has been  organized.   Kruger Weakening."  London. - May 27.���President  Kruger, according to t a dispatch  from Xewcastle, has " 'issued a  proclamation asking the Transvaal  burghers to notify him whether  they want to continue the Bghfc or  to sue for peace.  Good Haul by Colonials.  Maseru, Basutoland, May 26.���  Four squadrons of colonials captured 150 Boers with ten wagons of  grain near Ficksburg, where they  also captured a maxim constructed  by a local investor..  "' Imperialism in England.  - London, May 27.���There are no  indications in the bye elections that  the government has lost the confidence of the country, or that any  compromise will be tolerated in the  settlement of the issues of the war.  Successors to Sir Richard Webster  and the Marquis of Lome have been  elected to the commons by largely  increased majorities. The south  Manchester .poll is an astonishing  proof of the strength of the  Unionist party in what was once a  stronghold of little England ideas  and policies; There could not be a  more striking illustration of the  rise and progress of the new iniperi-  Boers in a Tight Hole.  London,  May  28.-8:20    a.m  When lord Roberts wrote his firsfcj  c  dispatch on Transvaal territory  yesterday, shortly before 2 o'clock  in the afternoon, he was 51 miles  from Johannesburg and 77 from  Pretoria. His immensely superior  forces had passed Vaal river, their  last great natural obstacle, at three  points. The Vaal forms a curve of  eighty miles, from. Parys on the  west to Zand drift on the ��� east.  The concave of the curve is toward the Free State. Thus lord  Roberts, advancing along the railway, was in a position to strike any  part of the crescent by ^shorter  lines than those by which the Boers  could. reinforce the threatened,  points. '���'-  The Boers retreated almost without a show of defence. General  French and general Hamilton apparently did not fire a shot. Of  lord Roberts' immediate force, 11  men belonging to the 80th Mounted  Infantry were the first to ford the  river. They came upon a Boer  patrol looting at .Viljoens Drift,  and a skirmish lasting ten minutes  followed.  Two hundred Boers tried feebly  to hold the Vereeniging collieries,  but they were dislodged. The Boer  rear guard is at Moyerton, ten miles  north of Vereeniging. Their main  body is moving toward the Klip  river hills that coyer, the south side  of Johannesburg.  While Roberts' 30,000 infantry,  20,000 horse and 150 guns are moving on Johannesburg and Pretoria,  through a parched and deserted  country, the situation at the Transvaal capital as it was last Friday is  thus described by an observer who  sent his message by private hand to  Lorenzo Marquez yesterday;  "The situation, both from a military and political point of view, has  become   very  critical.      President  Kruger yesterday admitted for the  first time that matters 'are   very  grave.   The Boer determination is  to trust everything to a last stand  on the Gatstand mountains to  Lhe  north of Potchefstroom, where S000  Kaffirs   are digging trenches.   To  that      point      every      available  man   and   gun   have   been    sent.  The     whole     of     the     western  border of the Ttansvaal from end  to end is defenseless, and general  Baden-Powell can  march in  when  he likes.   Lord Roberts on the other hand, will encounter the greatest resistance.   The Boer endeavor  is to lure the British into appeal ing  to threaten Johannesburg with attack, an excuse thus being given  for the destruction of the property.  The Transvaal government will not  dare destroy the mines or property  without an excuse.   Much dynamite  has been sent down the line and  100,000 cases lie ready at Zoorfon-  tein, near Johannesburg.    General  Botha  aad_ general -Meyer���have  pleaded   for   the   preservation   of  property.    Both are large land proprietors and  fear confiscation, but  they have not received satisfactory  ' replies    from . president   Kruger.  Meanwhile many French and German   adventurers have come forward with schemes and inventions  for blowing up the Biitish troops.  Some of these have received a tacit  permission   of   experiment.     One  German invention is for use on a  railway,, where   the   machine  lies  perfectly concealed until the weight  of a. -passing   train   explodes   the  charge.   . '.  ' "General ;Meyer says surrender  would be at once proposed by the  Boers, but that everybody fears the  ignominy of being the one to make  the proposal. He declares that he  isassuised that his men will not  stand. 'President Steyn' and Mr.  JEteitz,- the Transvaal state secretary, aro strongly opposed to peace,  but Mr. Kruger is not so much  against it."  ���   alism than the nearly thir��y-fold  increase in the ministerial majority  in the factory constituency where  the ablest and mo3t consistent  Liberal organ, the Manchester  Guardian, has been preaching to  empty pews. )  FENIANS WERE NOT WANTED  Stopped at New York.;-  NEWa. York,; May 27.���James Fitx-  patrick, alias "Skin the Goat,"- and  Joseph Mullet, the two surviving  members of the Irish Inyincibles,  who were recently released from  prison in Ireland, where they were  sentenced for complicity'jla'-rtbe'  Phoenix Park murders in.lS82^were  today .ordered,;!excluded' by: the  board of special inquiiy at jj/he immigration station, and ordered  deported.: The expulsion was made  under the interpretation ofijthe law  wliich forbids anyone being admitted to this country who has been  adjudged guilty of a "felony, crime,  infamous crime or misdemeanor  involving moral .turpitude/'  The two men were recently pardoned by earl Cadogan, lord-lieutenant of Ireland, from a sentence  of life imprisonment and' reached  this city on the Lucania on Saturday. ,        ,    -  "The two men were takea before  a special board on Ellis island this  morning. The inquisition was secret.  After the meeting of the board it  was learned that Fit/.patrick was  the first of the two to be examined  by the board. He admitted he had  served seventeen years. �� Wlien  asked for what crime he had been  convicted he answered "treason."  He was then questioned as to this  charge, and he told the board he  had been arrested ninef months  after the Phoenix Park murders in  company with 23 others, he being  sentenced to penal servitude for  life.  While telling his story to the  board Fitzpatrick declared that at  the time of his trial he wi^s offered  ,��10,000 by the English gefcrnment  if he would turn informer against  the other members of the band.  This he refused to do. Fitzpatrick  said that he and Mullet had about  $250 between them when they  reached this port. Fitzpatnek  said:  "I came to this country to have a  rest and recuperate, and then will  go hack to nfy family."  Mullet indignantly refused to  answer any questions put to him  by the board. Tho men were then  taken to the "excluded pen," The  case will probably be appealed to  the authorities at Washington, and  if not Fitzpatrick and Mullet will  leave the port on Saturday on the  Lucania.  The  can-  Triple Stumping Tour.  Kaslo, May 27���[Special to  Tribune].���The ttio of Slocan  didates for the legislature have  combined on _their_*leetion tour.  They will stump the country together, and so give the electors an  opportunity to hear their views all  at once. The Grcen-Keen-Kanc  meetings are likely to become famous in Slocan election history.  They start in Kaslo tomorrow  night, when the Auditorium is  likely to be crowded to the doors.  Their other dates are: Slocan City  May 31st, Silverton June 1st, New  Denver June 2nd, and Kaslo again  on June 8th, tho eve of election  day.  [   Green Endorsed by the Unions  Silverton, May 27^ [Special to  The Tribune.]���At a regular meeting of the ��Silverton miners* union  on Saturday night, a resolution was  carried unanimously that R. F.  Green be endorsed as the union candidate for the Slocan riding, and  that all union men should vote "and  work for his election. The Sandon,  Whitewater, Kaslo-and New Denver unions have also publicly endorsed-R. F. Green.  Canadians' Invaluable Assistance.  Ottawa, May 20���[Special to The  Tribune]:���Laurier has received the  following cable, which was delayed  in transmission, from major-general  Baden-Powell: "Mafeking, May 17.  ���Mafeking was relieved today,'and  we are most grateful for the invaluable assistance of the Canadian  artillery, which made a record  march from Beira to help us."  Hamilton in the Transvaal.  Kroonstadt, May 27.���General  Hamilton has invaded the Transvaal, having crossed the Wouder-  fontoin drift.  ROBERTS ACROSS THE VAAL  Coal Mines Saved.  London, May 27.���The war office  has received the following from  lord Roberts: "Vereeniging, Sunday,  May'27���1:50 p. in.--We crossed the  Vaal this morning, and are now  camping on the north bank. The  advance troops which crossed yesterday were only just in time to  save' the coal mines on both this  and the other side of the river from  being destroyed. Our casualties  were four.  "Baden-Powell reports that the  railway between Mafeking and  Buluwayo has been restored, and  supplies are being brought into  Mafeking. He says the : Canadian  artillery joined colonel Plumer from  Beira with incredible rapidity!  Lieutenant Webber was taken prisoner at Heilbron a few days ago.  He went there . on telegraph- duty.  It was not known that .pur'-.troops  had been temporarily withdrawn."  Doane, who have many friends here.  Bishop Doane made a most tactful  and eloquent speech when the news  of Mafeking's relief was received  by the passengers on the Oceanic,  and lord Warwick was most appreciative in responding to it. Captain John R. .Bartlett has. returned  to Loudon to attend the annual  meeting of the Combination Oil  Company, which he formed a year  ago. The new enterprise has been  remarkably successful, and captain  Bartlett has been welcomed by his  English colleagues as a great American financier."  VENUS MINE'S ROTARY MILL  Comment on Delegates' Reception.  New York, May 27.-r- Relating to  the impression in England produced  by the reception of the Boer delegates and the attitude of president  McKiniey, Isaac N. Ford says in his  cable:   "The English press is discreet   in  its   public references   to  American affairs.   There have been  few comments  upon the  reception  of the Boer delegates - in Washington, aud neither president McKiniey nor secretary Hay has been singled out for condemnation or compliments.    What has been said is  that the president has acted with  consistency, and that Englishmen  are not under obligation to him in  any respect.    There aie no illusions  in   England   respecting   president  McKiniey.       He     is      associated  with     the     protectionist      tariff,  which     bore      heavily      against  English   industries   in   Bradford,  Sheffield,   Cardiff   and    elsewhere,  and is   identified   with   American  politics of fche most   uncompromising character.   He is respected here  ift consequence ot the high character of his' administration, but no  well   informed   Englishman    ever  speaks with any enthusiasm of him  as was the general habit respecting  president   Cleveland    before    the  Venezuela     affair.      Shopkeeping  England  will never be convinced  that   fche author of the  McKiniey  act is anything  bufc a  downright  and aggressive American, bent upon  maintaining   the   economic   independence of fche United  States and  indifferent to English interests." '  Boh Green's on Top.  Kaslo, May 27,  [Special  to The  on   top,"  Tribune.)���"Bob Green's  thafc was how tiie miners' candidate  laughingly expressed himself afc the  nomination yesterday, when ifc was  found thafc his name would appear  on the ballot papers first, George  Kane coming second and John Keen  third. Veiy little interest was taken in the nomination. -There has  been some talk of a fourth man  coming forward, bufc after waiting  the legal hour, returning officer  Docstudter, of Cody, announced  that fche three men named were the  only ones seeking election ou June  9th. The general feeling here is  that Green can't be beaten. John  Keen may run him pretty close, although Green himself is confident  of good majority. George Kane  has quite a number of enthusiastic  supporters who are certainly working hard for him, bufc his defeafc is  as.certain as Hall's' and 'Fletcher's  iu Nelson. y *  War Charities in London.  Nrcw York, May 27.���Relative to  society and, people of prominence,  Mr. I. N. Ford cables tJiifc morning's  Tribune from London .as follows;  "Yesterday's drawing room was a  larger and more brilliant function  than had been anticipated, although  the royal circle- was small. 'Mine.  de Sfcael and the - duchess of  Sutherland were among the most  conspicuous figures, and there were  many pretty debutantes. The National bazaar is breaking all records  of war charity and is emptying the pockets of smart society.  Sir George White opened the third  day's proceedings yesterday at the  Royal Palace hotel, the pipers piping for him when he appeared and  during the afternoon. Mrs. Baden-  Powell was %yelcomed wifch shouts  of applause. The attendance yesterday exceeded 25,000, and there  was a clearance auction Kale during  the evening. Americans are beginning to come into London in  swarms. Among this week's arrivals     are      bishop     and     Mrs.  Forty Ton Daily Capacity.  Dr. Doolittle, president of the  Venus Gold Mining Company, returned to Nelson Saturday evening,  after spending some time in Southern California looking into the  workings of the rotary mills'.' and  cyaniding plants in "operation in  that state. From experiments made  with the Venus ore the Veniis company was convinced that greater  efficiency could be secured from a  rotary mill, and while Dr. Doolittle  was in Los Angeles he saw a mill  built for the Venus company set up  and tested. The rotary mills are a  combination crusher and mill, and  the Venus mill when tested on the  hardest gi;anite boulders gave complete satisfaction. Two such mills  were witnessed in operation on the  American Girl property near the  Arizona line, which is owned by ex-  governor Markham. The Venus  mill will have a capacity of 20 tons  per day on the hardest kind of rock,  but with the rock at present encountered in the Venus the capacity  of the mill should be at least 40  tons per day. The company expects to have the mill installed and  in operation ^-before .the middle of  June. It is estimated that it will  save two-thirds of fche values and  when ifc is paying its way a cyanide plant Will be put in to treat the  tailings.  In addition to the rotary mill  the Venus,company is putting in a  complete steam plant, consisting of  a 40-horse power boiler, a 35-Hbtse  "power automatic engine, winch will  give sufficient surplus power to run  some 200 electric lightsforthe mine  and mill.  The Venus property is developing  well. There are between 1800 and  1400 feet of tunneling in on the  vein, and ifc is estimated thafc there  are about 17,000 tons of ore ready for  stoping, test values of which indicate uu average value of $80 to the  ton. The company's nexfc move  will be the installation of a compressor planfc. The mill and machinery are expected here on Friday, and the work on the wagon  road to the miiie, which is now  nearly completed, will be rushed  tin ongh and finished   by that date.

The letter does not make  clear what kind of a "delegate" Mr.  Parr was.    Upon his  own showing,  Mr. Parr attended the convention  purposely without credentials.    He  was therefore not a delegate to the  convention.    When  he  arrived at  the convention here the business of  the   convention   had   been   transacted.     The convention,  however,  was over-courteous  to Mr. Parr, in  that it was suggested to reopen the  business, if he desired to speak as a  delegate.    This offer  Mr. Parr declined; aud after he was given an  opportunity  of voicing his recent  conversion to Martinism  the convention adjourned.   The wisdom of  the convention in allowing Mr. Parr  to take part in the discussion without credentials may be questioned;  but there   may   have   been   some  I reason for it.   It may have been  ' that the  delegates present desired  to learn something more of the potent influence  which worked   the  rapid conversion of Mr. Parr to the  cause of Martinism;  and the connection  which exists  between the  Ymir   Martinism and   the   Nelson  anti-Martinism,   as    expressed   by  candidate   Hall, but in this they  were disappointed.  Fob an entire week the editor of  the   Nelson   Miner endeavored  to  convince   his   readers  that' candidate Houston was discredited with  the labor organizations of the city.  As  this  was a matter upon which  none but the members of such organizations     could     speak     with  authority, no attention was paid to  it.   On Friday evening, however, a  convention of the different trades  aud labor organizations of the city  was held, for the purpose of discussing the political situation, and taking   such action as they thought  best in  the interests of organized  labor.   None were supposed to have  access to tho convention1 save duly  accredited delegates from the different unions,  and the only  report  givenof the convention's proceeding^ was that published by the secretary, which appeared in Saturday's   issue  of  The Tjrimjne.   It  was,   in   brief, that   the   several  unions,   through   tlieir    delegates,  unanimously endorsed the candidature of John Houston.   This was as  complete an answer to the Miner's  former   statements   as    could    be  wished.   The Trijhjnb is content  to take the secretary's report as  furnished, and credit the members  of the different unions taking part  in the convention with sincerity.  Since the verdict was against the  Miner's candidate", however, it has  pleased the editor of the Miner to  charge the several unions aiid theii.  delegates with duplicity'���with endorsing candidate Houston for the  purpose of deceiving him.���This, no  doubt,  is the estimate which  the  editor   of   the  Miner places upon  members- of   labor    organizations.  Tiik Tiuhunk differs from ifc, but it  is an insult which the members of  the   organizations  can   effectually  resent themselves on the ninth day  of June.  _���&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&*_;-&       __i__i-_*_s_-.-,_--^-_i_-^-_*-^^.^.^.^.^.^.

(2) Ishalladvocatc the government, ownership  of railways and othor public franchises so far as  may bu practicable, and a general enactment  by wliich companies desiring to construct railways may be incorporated without special legislation, and that railways bonuscd by the province may bo under government control as to  their rates and subject to purchase at government option.  (3) I shall do all in my power to assist and support the advancement and development of tne  mining interests of the provinco, upon which its  prosperity 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 expenditure upon  trunk roads and trails in the various districts of  tho province, believing that upon such expenditure tho development of the vast resourcos of  the country materially depends.  ((i) I shall advocate, and if elected assist in,  the enactment of laws for tho piopor adjustment  of disputes between labor and capital, by a well  digested and equitably arranged syotom of compulsory nrhitiation.  (7) I believe that Asiatic and other cheap  labor is detrimental to the best interests of British Columbia. I shall therefore advocate its restriction so far as it may be intra vires of provincial legislation, and shall assist in bringing such  pressure to bear upon the federal government as  may induce that government to assist in the  work, and will most emphatically insist that no  such class of labor shall ho employed upon any  public works undertaken by the piovince or upon  such works .is are subsidized' by, or in any way  subject to tho control of the government.  (8) I believe that the educational system of the  province may bo materially improved and shall  give my heartiest assistaiKC in bringing it to the  highest state of efficiency by the establishment of  normal schools and other instrumentalities that  may tend to the accomplishment of that object.  (!)) I shall alao advocate and assist in tho development of the agricultural resources of the  province.  (10) I believe that the moneys of the piovince  should be expended upon some broad and general  system w Inch would ensure the greatest amount  of benefit from such expenditure. In this riding  I have endeavored to inaugurate such a system  by having tho work upon roads and trails placed  under a responsible head, so that the appropriation, necessarily, inadequate under existing circumstances, might bo beneficially and ccononii  Sally oxpended. Yours respectfully,  R. F. GREEN.  Kaslo. B. C, May 10th, 1900.  To the Electors ov the Nelson Riding :  Gentlemen���As the unanimous choice of a duly  constituted convention of the supporters of tho  Provincial Party in tho Xelson riding, I am before you as a candidate for roproscntat ive of tho  Nelson riding in the noxr. provincial legislature.  In this connection I desire to solicit your votes  and influence in my behalf. Believing that  every man aspiring for mcmbeiship should place  himself on record on the main issues I take this  opportunity of stating that I am iu favor of legislation upon the following lines:  1. Representation in tho legislative assembly  should bo based on population, with such modifications in will give sparsely settled districts proportionately larger representation than cities and  thickly settled farming districts.  2. All legislation should be genoral, and not  special. A beginning has been made iu 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 in  corporation act, and one giving municipalities  the same powers to acquire water records as are  now accorded-private corporations.  3. Public lands should be kept for actual settlement, and land subsidies should not bo granted  to aid the building of railways that when built'  arc owned by corporations.  ; 4. Government ownership of railways is no  more a theory than municipal ownership of  public utilities. Both have been tried and found  to work for the public good when capably and  honestly managed ; but in making a commencement in government ownership of lailw.iys in  this province, a section should be selected in  whicli the government would havc a free hand,  and not in sections where .competition would be  met.  5. 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.  (j. Positive, not negative, laws should only be  passed. If the principle of a law is good, the  law should bo effective. The eight hout day tor  men working underground iu metalliferous mines  is now generally accepted as legislation in the  right direction. I would oppose any legislation  that would repeal the penalty Clause, ui- in an)  other way impair tho 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 Dominion  House of Commons, which provides for the payment of fair wages on public works or works  aided by government subsidies. All contractors  doing work for cither the Dfoviiice or for municipalities should be required to pay labor the rate  of wages ruling in the municipality or ncighboi-  hood m which the work is to be done, the number of hours to constitute a.day on all such woik  to bo fixed by statute.  8. Courts havo been established in which 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 be established for the  compulsory settlement of- disputes between the  representatives of capital and labor, disputes  that too often are far reaching in their damaging  effects on the general prosperity of whole communities and districts.  0. Mining for the precious metals is the one industry which is benefiting, directly or indirectly,  every community in the piovince, and legislation  affecting the industry, in the way of taxation,  should be based on the treatment and manufacture within the provinoo'of the product; of the  mines, rather than on the output of the mines as  at present. ,  10. The establishment of n buieau, with headquarters in British Columbia a'i<l not in Gie.it  Britain, to sj-stcniafically advertise all the  natural scsources and iconic attiactions of the  province.  11. OrganizedJmuai"ipahtics bhould be given  the control ot their public schools, leaving to the  province the care of public* schools in nnoigan-  ized districts and the maintenance of normal and  technical schools.  12. Ti link roads and tiaJIs should be built and  maintained at public expense, and the cost of  roads and trails to isolated mines and communities should bo borne m piut by the province.  13. General hospitals should bo under government contiol, and the government should help  maintain physicians in bpaisely settled sections  of the province.  H. The government in power should make  oflici.ilannouncement, fora reasonable tunc before the legislative assembly meets, of all pio-  Eoscd legislation. AVeie this done theie would  e fewer hastilj passed laws, laws which are too  often against the public intciest.  All ot which is lespectfully submitted for jour  consideration.

The new Congregational church  was launched in the opera house  last night. Rev. William ��� Munroe,  who has been appointed to inaugurate the work, has arranged to hold  services in the opera house for some  months, until church premises are  erected on the Silica street lots  owned by that denomination. Last  night about 350 people gathered  and the service was of an interesting nature. The stage was neatly  arranged and the music was furnished by Herr Steiner on the 'cello  and professor Werner on the piano.  The program that followed was the  ordinary church service. Rev. Mr.  Munroe devoted his attention to indicating the policy which would be  followed by the Congregationalists  and their attitude to other denominations now established in the city.  There would be on his part no element of competition. Any approach  to the. spirit of oj>position was abhorrent to him and to those of the  Congregationalist persuasion.

New York, May 27.���I. N. Ford's  London cable to the Tribune upon  the South African war situation  says: "No particulars of the crossing of the Vaal near Parys are yet  forthcoming other than those contained in general Roberts' official  message. The reported recapture  of Heilbron by the Boers is not yet  confirmed, and there is a tendency  to doubt the accuracy of the Pretoria telegram. If, however, the  Boers really occupied the place general Roberts should not have much  difficulty in turning them out  again. Although the federal troops  have been retreating so rapidly  from their positions iu the Free  State, it is considered highly probable that they will make at least  one big effort to maintain their possession of the Rand.
