 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  tfELSOST:  TUESDAY MORNING  MAY 29 1900.  PRICE FIVE GENTS  GENERAL FRENCH RUMORED TO BE IN JOHANNESBURG  Lord Roberts Within a Day's March.  Cape Town, May 28.���It is rumored here that general French has  entered Johannesburg.  London, May 28.���Midnight.���The war oflice just before midnight  published the following dispatch from lord Roberts :  '���Ki,ii�� Riviou, Transvaal, May 2S.-���5:2."> p.m.���We marched twenty  miles today and are now eighteen miles from Johannesburg. The enemy  had prepared several positions where they intended to oppose us, but  they abandoned them one after the other as wc ueared them. We pressed  them so hard that they had only just time to get their five guns into a  train and to leave this station as some of the West Australian mounted  infantry dashed into it. French's and Ian Hamilton's forces are apparently engaged with the enemy about ten miles to our left, as firing has  been heard since noon. The farmers near our line of advance are sur-  lendering with their arms and horses. Rundle occupied Senekal on May  2 Ith.    No report of what took place has reached me yet."  PARTIAL ECLIPSE OF SUN  Successful Observations.  RAnNRSviiii.B, Georgia, May 25.���  Amid perfect arrangement of detail  with good weather conditions and  with no hindrances or defects to  prevent success, varying phases of  the solar eclipse were observed by  the government astronomists at the  United States observatory here today. The photographic work was  unusually successful. Five cameras  made twenty exposures all of which  are believed to be good. The large  photo-heliograph producing three  perfect negatives aud one flash  negative just as totality ended. At  the expected minute the corona  (lashed out iuto a double fanlike  form of great beauty. Several  solar prominences were distinctly  observed, both on the following aud  advancing limb. The corona extended about half a degree from the  sun's limb in the direction of the  eclipse with streamers plainly  vi&ible.  1 Thoaiaston, Georgia, May 28.<���  The eclipse observations here ^vvere  conducted under perfect conditions,  (ho totality being a scant 85  seconds. Not a cloud was visible  imywhejrc near the corona. Some  distance off from the corona's outride rim, a brilliant star was distinctly visible. The effect afc the  time of complete obscuration was  thafc of a deep twilight. A squad  of deputy sheriffs guarded the approaches to the observatory tents,  it being feared that the .stream' of  people would jar the earth and  i-lfeet the delicate instruments.  Professor Campbell of the Lick  eclipse expedition was at his observatory at 5 o'clock and every man  was iu his place au hour before the  contact was noted. Professor Campbell gave the Associated Press tiie  following statement:  "The sky was clear, but not very  blue. Rapidly approaching clouds  from fche southwest obscured fche  sun less than one minute after totality. The programme, which was  almost wholly photographic work,  was carefully-carried oufc-excepfc-i lithe case of one spectroscope, whose  clock refused to work, The sti earners seemed to be nearer the solar  equator than in 1898. The shadow  banda were distinctly observed inclining from aboufc 38 degrees west  of north to ^8 degrees cast, travelling northeast."  * Victoria, May 28.���The meteorological oflice hero makes the following report; on this morning's solar  eclipse: "The sun rose amidst a  bank of clouds, from which it  arose just in time for <tho first contact to be seen. During the eclipse  the sun's disc wa.s clear and well  defined until nearly the close, when  ���a light; cloud passed across it, but  without materially affecting  the sight. The eclipse commenced on fche southwestern  edge of fche sun's disc, the  first contact was at 5:15:25 a,ni. and  the lasfc contact at 0:34:10, the  maximum, aboufc three-tenths of  the sun's diameter,-was attained  at 5:54:47 a.m., and the entire duration of the eclipse was 1 hour, 18  minutes, 40 secotlds. No shadow  bands were observed. The barometer at 5 a.m, was 30;17 and the  temperature was 45. A sudden remarkable drop of thi'ee degrees of  temperature was recorded on the  thermograph at 4:40 a.m. The  wind was light and from the south-  y\ est.   May Destroy Johannesburg.  London, May 29.-3 a. in.���The  Morning Post has the following dispatch from Lorenzo Manjuez dated  Monday: "President Kruger has  issued a public proclamation warning all people to leave Johannes  burg or to remain there at the peril  of their lives, as it might become  necessary to destroy the town and  the mines. Hundreds of cases of  winter clothing for the prisoners at  Pretoria have been sent by the relief association to United States  consul Hay as well -as ��10,000 in  cash."  TRANSVAAL PANIC STRICKEN  Boers Beady to Give Dp.  London, May 29.-3 a.m.���General Roberts is now within a day's  march  of Johannesburg, and  general French and genoral Ian Hamilton  fought the  Boers from  noon  until evening on Monday with what  result is not known  here.    H. J.  Wigham in a dispatch to the Daily  Mail dated May  28th  says :    "The  demoralization of the  Transvaal is  remarkable.    Panic and confusion  prevail everywhere.     Everyone is  weary of the war and full of fear  as to the coming of the British.  Operations were -being  carried on  for encircling Pretoria with a telephone   communication.     Fourteen  points in fche line of defences * wfere  connected with  headquarters and  with the Staats artillery, but this  apparently was the only defensive  measure adopted.   There were no  other   visible   preparations.     Nofc  much gold isJlikel5r to be found in  the treasury.   The salaries of the  officials and judges have nofc been  paid, or have been paid only   in  National bank notes, which will be  worthless when lord   Roberts arrives.  "The seat of government will be  removed to Watervalboven, a small  station on the Delagoa Bay railway  line, and then, if necessary, to Ly-  deuburg. Both presidents Steyn  aud Kruger complain bitterly of  lord Roberts' tactics In refusing to  meet the Boers in positions chosen  by them, and in eternally turning  them by flank movements. Around  Johannesburg a few trenches have  been dug, bufc no other steps have  been taken for defence. The rail-  _way_line is_ blocked _wifch_refugees  from the Avesfc and southwest, who  are packed like sardines in trucks.  The government is now endeavoring to reassure the public by telling  them that the British will not outrage and plunder them, but ifc is too  late. The previous statements are  bringing their reward. Food is  very scarce and prices rule high.  The proposal to release the British  prisoners of war is due to this  cause. Members of the government  and of the volksraad express approval of the proposal, bufc president  Kruger is violently opposed to ifc.  "There has been a decided change  in public opinion, which has become  quite English. The burghers on  commando sing "God Save fche  Queen," and they cannot be stopped.  All are sick of warfare, In the  towns the rabid anti-Englishism is  loss rampant. People are thinking  of their property. The parfcy eager  for surrender is now very influential, and includes the principal  loaders at the front. The intelligent  public feels that the game is up.  False news no longer has any effect,  and the lying reports of the newspapers are universally disbelieved.  Although the hand of tho censor  lias been very heavy on news of all  kinds recently, everyone believes  the worst. The government has  arranged to continue the agitation  against the British occupation of  two republics on the continent of  Europe. In Great Britain aud in  fche United States great efforts are  to be made in this direction, and no  expense will be spared. I have excellent reasons for believing that  fche Bewaarplantzen rights have  been sold to a   French syndicate  without the sanction of the volksraad.  "The government hopes by this  means to bring about French intervention for the protection of French  rights in the Wifcwatersrand and  thus cause England grave difficulties. The conduct of United States  consul Hay is admirably discreet,  and meets with universal praise  alike from Boer and British sympathizers."  Another dispatch from Lorenzo  Marquez says:  "General Louis Botha is at Pretoria urging president Kruger to  arrange peace terms. Runaway  burghers from Laing's Nek passed  through Heidelberg last week,  wounded officers with their families  are leaving Johannesburg and Pretoria - for Lydenburg. President  Steyn occupies the house of a British resident at Pretoria. Passengers arriving at Lorenzo Marquez  on Monday from Pretoria say it was  believed there that the British  would not be at the capital for a  month, nevertheless there was much  unrest and anxiety."  KRUGER IS STILL OBDURATE  Boers on Portuguese Frontier.  London, May 29.���The Lorenzo  Marquez correspondent of the  Times, telegraphing Monday, says:  "Commandant-general Botha consulted the Transvaal government a  few days ago, and, in the strongest  terms, urged capitulation, recognizing that the struggle is utterly  hopeless. Neither persuasion nor  the liberal use of the sjambok can  induce the men to stand. Steyn is  equally emphatic for peace, but  Kruger is still obdurate. The feeling of tlfb Pretoria peace party,  however, may at auy moment carry  the point.  "While the reports of a possible  border conflict between the Boers  and the Portuguese are not credited  here, the uneasiness of local officials  continues. All sorts of sensational  rumors are afloat. The latest is of  the hauling down of fche Portuguese  flag afc the Portuguese consulate at  Pretoria. The Boers are undoubtedly strengthening- their commandoes on fche border."  London, May 29.���According to  a special dispatch from, Lorenzo  Marquez there are 900 Boers on the  Portuguese border. _   1  Casualties Among Canadians  Ottawa, May 28���[Special to The  Tribune].���Lord Minto has received  fche following cablegram today from  sir Alfred Milner: "Capetown, May  26.���Regret to report4 acting bombardier W. Patton and gunner W.  MeCallum, C battery, Royal Canadian Artillery, slightly wounded  on May 10th ,afc Mafeking; private  J. H. Rasberry died of enteric fever  at Bloemfontein on May 24fch; and  H. II. dements died of enteric fever  at Springfontein on May 25th, both  _BoyaI Canadian.regiments.-(Signed)  Milner."  Raspberry was of the 77 th regiment and Clements name does not  appear on the nominal roll. Harry  Hammond Clements was a member  of the Canadian Mounted Rifles and  an ex-member of the Northwest  Mounted Police. He came from  Hertfordshire, England.  Sir Alfred Milner to lord Minto:  "Capetown, May 23.���Regret to report the illness of 7111 private C.  C. Thompson, at 7377 private T. H.  Rasberry afc Bloemfontein of fche  Royal Canadians, 407 driver R.  Brewer, at Orange river of the  Canadian Artillery. Signed Milner."  The Kumassi Rising,  London, May 28.���A dispatch received at the colonial office from  Accra, British Gold Coast, announces  that' colonel Wilcox's relief force  which has only just started from  Kumassi has already met; with opposition. One officer is reported  wounded. The Accra dispatch of  yesterday, which reported that  three European officers were killed  and one captain and 100 Houssas  were wounded, seems to refer to the  fighting which occurred a couple of  months ago. The government does  nofc appear to be appi ehensive of a  serious extension of the rising.  On 'Change,  London, May 28.���The rumor  that Johannesburg has been occupied by general French, coupled  wifch the stock exchange report  that the Boers had agreed to surrender unconditionally, served fco  considerably improve the Kaffir  market this afternoon.  REPORT ON THE JOKER MINE  Advises a 20-Stamp Mill.  J. J. Fleutot, manager of the Excelsior Gold Mines of British Columbia, operating the Joker group  in Camp Mansfield, has presented  his report on the property to the  directors, a translation of which is  in part as follows:  "The work done upon these  claims consists of a principal shaft  70 feet deep, sunk near the northern boundary, of the Joker, in  which the presence of a body of  gold-bearing quartz Ikis been determined.  "At a depth of 05 feet a tunnel  on a slight grade, to permit the  running off of the water, has been  driven, following the vein in a  southerly direction, towards the  Derby claim. ��� On the 1st of last  February this tunnel had been  driven about 250 feet, and along its  length the existence of paystreaks  of gold-bearing quartz of varying  values has been determined. At a  distance of 230 feet, the vein or  ledge which contains these pay-  streaks was crosscut and showed a  thickness of 30 feet; then, since at  the place where it started, near the  northern boundary of the Joker,  the ledge was about ~"6 feet thick,  there is reason to deduce from that  fact that the vein' gradually increases in size as it 'approaches the  Derby, and that ifc terminates near  the northern boundary of the  Joker.  "In determining the thickness of  the ledge at,-a distance of 230 feet  we crosscut other 'quartz veins  slightly mineralized;-and also considerable sections bf decomposed  granite in which' gold was present  in smaller quantities than in the  quartz, but which would^ still pay  to treat.  "We also sank another shaft  about "70 feefe deep alongside the  first, and this was in 'ore all the  way.  "On the surface we have also demonstrated the .exisfcence^of^, the  vein hear the southern boundary of  tiie Joker, where we have driven a  35-foot tunnel from which we have  extracted quartz carrying pyrites  and galena carrying gold values as  well as silver.  "At four points along the length  of fche Derby claim we have also demonstrated the presence of the vein  which carries the mineral, and from  this we consider thafc the vein exists the whole length of both  claims, or aboufc 2000 feet.  "The thickness of the paystreaks  varies from 1 to 2] feet.  "At different times we have taken  average samples of all mineral encountered in development and exploration work, and up to this date  the average assay returns have been  $10.28."  After making recommendations  as to future operations,, Mr. Fleutot  says:  "According to the last news re-  eeived-from Raoul Green, assistant  engineer, under date of February  22nd, a paystreak has been crosscut  which shows up five feet wide afc  fche widest place, while in the roof  of the tunnel wa6 one foot of solid  galena. Au upraise, made for purposes of ventilation, and which will  later be of use in exploiting the  mine, has been started at 250 feefc  from the shaft, aud which on  February 22nd had been run 30  feet.  "To sum up, gentlemen, T have  pleasure in telling you that our  mines present the best possible  aspectj and that I consider their  future brilliant with a very long  period of production."  In a supplementary report,- dealing with the proposed erection of a  mill on the property, Mr. Fleutot  says:  "We ought to put up a 20-sfcamp  mill so" as not only to work the  principal vein, bufc also the secondary ones, less rich, it is true, but  which shoidd be capablo of profitable working. At this moment  there is sufficient ore in sights to  rim a 20-stamp mill for a year.  "Jf wc only treat the principal  vein, we could only supply 10  stamps, and tho returns would be  as follows:  "Ten stamps handling 20 tons a  day, 'in 300 days would crush (5000  tons of ore. which would, figuring  on a 93 per cent extraction, yield  $228,000, from which must be deducted for mining, treatment and  other expenses, $10 per ton, which  would leave a net profit of $108,000.  "With 20 stamps we could treat  12,000 tons of ore averaging $2i to  the ton, which would yield $288,000,  and from which $6 a ton should be  deducted for expenses, leaving a  net profit of $216,000.  "To this result must be added the  returns from the direct sale of  about 1000 tons of high grade  galena, which -will net $60 a ton,  giving a total net profit of $276,000,  from which, of course, will have to  be written off the cost of development work, wear and tear of  material, and a sum set aside for  the creation of a sinking fund."  MUCH BUSINESS WAS DONE  -   City Council Meeting.  The city council had two weeks'  business to dispose of last night,  and several matters of considerable  interest came up. The members  present were mayor Houston, aldermen Morrison, Irvine, Hall and  Arthur.  In opening mayor Houston informed the council that during the  day he had been been approached  with the query as to whether it  was advisable to call a public meeting to arrange for tho proper observance of Dominion Day. His  reply was to suggest the names of  Messrs. Buchanan, Teetzel, Malone,  Troup and Peters as a general committee to take the matter in  hand and assume charge of the celebration. These gentlemen, it was  well known, took an interest in  such matters and as they had already met and appointed sub-committees it would be admitted that  this course was preferable to a public meeting.  Aldermen flail and Morrison  moved a resolution approving of  the mayor's action in forming a  general committee of five citizens  to arrange the celebration, and  authorizing a grant of $500 as the  city's subscription to the demonstration funds. This was carried  unanimously.  Mayor Houston diew attention  to the necessity of further*fire protection in the neighborhood of Hall  and Front' ^streets where the saw  mills and wholesale warehouses are  located. All these .buildings were  of wood and if the mill went; none  could be saved. He estimated the'  value of the property in this particular district at not less than  $150,000, the greater portion of  which would be losfc should a blaze  get' beyond control. A hydrant  was located afc the corner of Hall  and Front streets and he suggested  placing 500 or 600 feet of the 'extra  hose now owned by the cifcy, which  was good for an emergency, be  placed on fche property owned by  the C. P. R. if the company was  agreeable.  Aldermen Arthur aud Irvine  moved that 500 feefc of hose be  placed afc the corner of Hall and  Front streets and that the O. P. R,  be asked to permit the erection of  a shed on the southeast corner for  the protection of the hose. Carried.  \ldcrnian Irvine reported that  the proposed-main-sewer-on Lake  street would cost $1050, and the  sewer in the rear of Vernon street,  from Ward to a point 75 feet east  of Hall, would cost $750. lie  moved, seconded by alderman  Arthur, thafc a sewer be laid in the  alley north of Vernon street, from  the middle of block 08 west as far  as necessary, and on Josephine  street from fche alley north of Vernon street to Front, thence to  Cedar, and on Lake street wesfc  from Hall street to Ward. Carried.  A resolution was- passed authorizing the laying of a sewer ou Hendryx street south to Victoria,  thence to Cedar, aud south to first  alloy, and on Silica between Cedar  and Park streets in block 26 as far  as required. This was carried,  with the proviso thafc the work be  done by day's labot, alderman Arthur dissenting.  The question of changing the location of the city stables was  mooted, and the cifcy park near, the  pent houso was suggested as a suitable site. The aldermen agreed  that with sfcables thus far rfemoved  no citizens could possibly object,  and the matter was carried on motion of alderman Irvine and Arthur.  On motion of aldermen Irvine  and Morrison it was resolved that  Avater mains be laid on all streets  recommended hy the city engineer  on the arrival of fche necessary pipe,  and thafc the work be done by day's  labor. Aldermen Arthur and Hall  voted nay on the resolution.  Engineer McCuIloch wa*�� asked if  the road making apparatus was as  guaranteed, to which he replied  that the cru&hor had nofc proved up  to the murk and had  required  re  WHO THE CANDIDATES ARE, AND WHERE THEY STAND  A corrected list of the candidates nominated throughout the province  on Saturday is herewith presented. A glance afc the list is sufficient to  show that in fche next legislature there will be many new faces. It will  be noticed that no less than fourteen members who sat in the lasfc legislature, have decided to quit politics for the present at least. The political  complexion of the candidates seeking election, point to the creation of  three parties: The Provincial Party, the Turner-Wilson Conservatives  and fche Marfcinites.  Martin-  ITES.

A discussion anenfc the cost of  macadamizing resulted in the council agreeing that the work on Baker  street could be safely estimated at  $2500 per block.  Aldermen Irvine and Morrison  moved that the alley south of Robson street between Kootenay and  Stanley streets be opened up. Alderman Arthur and Hall moved in  amendment that the matter be referred fco the board of works. The  amendment was losfc and the original motion- was carried.  Aldermen Arthur and Irvine  moved thafc two crossings be laid at  the corner of Kootenay and Victoria streets, and that a six-foofc  sidewalk be laid ou the south side  of Victoria street from ths corner  of Kootenay east to the residence  of Mr. Booth.

Victoria,  May 28.���("Special   to  The   Tribune.]���The   labor    party  has turned against LW.  W. B. Mclnnes and will  endeavor to  defeat  him in North Nanaimo. They claim -  that he is responsible for the  Hon.  J. S. Yates running   in   Nanaimo _  City against Ralph Smith, the labor ���  leader. ��� Smith held a big meeting  in Nanaimo ou Saturday when Mc- -  Innes was formally denounced.    In _  the course of his speech Smith said:  "George Kennedy came over from  Vancouver and asked me to enter  fche Martin cabinet, saying "that if I  would do  so, J. C.  Brown  of New  Westminster would also enter  the  cabinet,   aud  Cory S.  Ityder and  Georgo Washington Bebe would be  relegated to innocuous ^desuetude."  Mr. Smifch asked Mr, Kennedy to  make thafc proposition to a committee of fifteen of his friends, To  this Mr. Kennedy assented, and  committee came together' to listen  to the proposition, A further condition of Smith's entering fche cabinet was fchafc the suifc against the  New Vancouver Coal Company  would be dropped, although Mr. r  Brown had since written to Mr.  Smith to say that Mr. Kennedy had  rather exceeded his authority in  making this proposition. When  Mr. Kennedy laid his proposition  before the committee they declined  fco have anything to do with it.

Now that the nominations are all  announced it will be seen that  premier Martin has fallen a long  way short of his promise to have  government candidates in every  constituency. The returns show  that in one-half of the constituencies he has even failed to secure  men who would accept nomination  as his candidate. It i.s seldom a  government is so weak that It is  beaten by the official reading of the  nominations ; yet this is what has  happened to tho Martin government. If every avowed candidate  that premier Martin has in the field  was successful at tho poll the government would still be in a minority  in the legislature.  Candidate Hall, is making what  may be termed a sympathetic canvass.   He would have the electors  believe that he is an unwilling candidate, and that he ���vyas   dragged  into the present contest agaiust his  will.   The doctor's version, hardly  fits iu   with   the   report   of   the  annual meeting of the Nelson Liberal Association, where his friends  endeavored to start the Hall boom.  The Liberals of the association, of  which Dr.  Hall is a member, can  hardly be accused of persuading Dr.  Hall to offer himself as a  sacrifice.  When the motion was made that  the association place a candidate in  the field, in  which connection Dr,  Hall's name was mentioned, it was  voted xlown by an overwhelming  majority.    If there was any reluctance on  the  part of   Dr.  Hall to  enter   the    field,   this   intimation  from his friends should have furnished sufficient excuse.    Dr. Hall  is in the position of a man who insists upon being a candidate after  his friends have refused to accept  him.    He is only an unwilling candidate in the sense that he is unwilling to bow to the will of the  majority.  While premier Martin and his  lieutenants    are , abusing    Ralph  Smith, as the creatures of the New  Vancouver     Coal   - Company,   the^  labor leader contents himself with  furnisliing the reason.    It appears  that   premier     Joe    desired     to  strengthen his cabinet by the addition of .Ralph Smith.     He  wanted  Smith so badly that he offered to  throw   out   two   of his, incapable  ministers, and make radical changes  in    his    celebrated   policy.     But  'Ralph Smith lias no confidence in  Martin, and refused to sell ,his influence   for    personal   aggrandisement.    This   is   something   which  premier Martin cannot understand,  but since heJ could not   purchase  Smith's   influence    he   .desires' to  weaken it.

The Russian government seems  to litilt between two opinions in regard to the Siberian gold mining industry.   The London Mining Journal,' an excellent authority on the  situation touching the matter, says  that on the one hand the economical position of the Russian empire, I  and the declared policy of the fin- '  .���nice minister, seem to indicate their  desire to throw open tho gold miues  to all bona fide industrials desirous  ot  working   them;  oii   the   other  hand, their jealousy of the foreigner  is such, and tlieir  love of  red tape  methods   so confirmed,  that  they  find it very difficult to refrain from  putting all sorts of stumbling blocks  in  the way  of regulations  in  the  path of those who have it in mind  to migrate into the Siberian gold  districts.  The result of this curious and  contradictory attitude assumed by  the Russian government has been  to awaken quite a false impression  in the minds of those miners who  aro  anxious  to  open  new  mining  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson,City, N. W. T.  The would-be memorialists soon  learned by inquiry that > such a  course would mean a delay of several years. Thus that, which at  one time looked promising enough,  seenis likely to be crushed by the  mailed hand of Russian despotism,  and gold mining in that hyperborean region will, probably remain  a dream among those who once  thought favorably of such a venture.  Ralph Smith's Opinion.  The Independent.  Ralph Smith,   president   of the  Dominion Trades  and   Labor Congress, returned Friday from a tour  through' the interior iu the interests of the independent labor party.  Speaking of the prospects of success he said that the feeling is very  strong in every center in favor of  the labor  movement.    At Nelson,  Mr. John Houston, a member of the  printer's union and editor of the  ^Nelson  "Tribune," is in the field,  and is   certain  of ejection.     This  may be accounted for from the fact  that John has always had the entire  sympathy of the ti-ades unionists.  In some places candidates  of the  jjarties are being endorsed hy^. the  trades unions,   which means that  the next house will be made up to  a. large extent of men who are more  Capital Authorized  Capital Paid up  Rest  $2,500,000  $2,391,863  $1,654,710  D.

It is my intention to become a candidate at, tho  forthcoming election and with full confidence in  the result I again respectfully solicit the suffrages of the 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 practicable, I have earnestly  endeavored to forward legislation in the interests  uf the whole province, and such as would tend  toward its material development.  Constant in attendance at tho sessions of the  legislature, I have been watchful that no vote of  mM_c should be wanting for any measuro bene-  ficstl to my constituents, or the province as a  Wikole; nor have I been neglectful of the interests of the wage earner, but have, in some de-  i gnoesit least, been instrumental in placing their  :] ia'iridemands 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 1 have advocated and shall continue  to advocate until they are incorporated in provincial legislation.  (1)1 am in favor of an equitable redistribution  ot the seats in the legislative assembly, based  generally upon population, but with due regard  fields in the land of.the czar.   They  havc learned by .the publication of  elaborate official reports as to gold  deposits, and the implications contained   therein,   that   all   genuine  seekers  after  Siberian  placers   or  gold-bearing quartz deposits will be  welcomed in the mineral field and  hence a sort of a trek has been organized in this country bo explore  and   work, tho   near   neighboring  fields across the straits from Alaska.  .The Russian consul at San Fran-  <;i?co has been  besieged with -enquiries as   to   the 'prospects   and  localities.   Strong in the customarj^  Wicad of hK own government, the  consul has professed entire ignor-  itnre of the question aud  has  ro-  fi-'ired t^,e enquirers to the Russian  embassy in  New   York,, where* a  similarly   unsatisfactory   state   of  mind  was found  to' exist.    After  sifting  fche whole" question tho applicants were brought face to face  with the fact that the only possible  procedure was   to memorialize the  litis&inn   czar   for    permission    to  prospect in the desired'territories,  when an enquiry would  be instituted into the whole matter.

NELSON   RIDING  TO THE El.KCTORS OK THE Ni:i.sox ltioi.vo:  Gentlemen���As tho unanimous choice of a duly  constituted convention of the supporters of the  Provincial Party in tho Nelson riding, I am before you as a candidato for representative of the  Nelson riding in tho next, provincial legislature.  In this connection I desire to solicit your votes  and influence in my behalf, lielieving that  every man aspiring for membership should place  himself on record on the main issues 1 take this  opportunity of stating that 1 am in favor of legislation upon tho following lines:  1. llopresentation in tho legislative assembly  should be based on population, with such inoilili-  cations as will give sparsely settled districts proportionately larger representation than cities and  thickly settled farming districts.  2. All legislation should be goneral, and not  special. A beginning has been made iu this  direction by Iho enactment otlaws under which  cities can be incorporated, companies formed,  and. water records obtained. These should be  added to by the passage of a general railway incorporation act, and ono giving municipalities  the same powers to acquire water records as are  now accorded private.corporations. "/���������  3. Public lands should be kept fornctual settlement, and hind subsidies should not be granted  to aid tho building of railway* that when built  are owned by corporations.  1. Government ownership of railways is no  more a theory than municipal ownership of  public utilities. Both liuvc been tried and found  to work for the public good when i/apably and  honestly managed ; but in making a commencement in government ownership of railways in  this provinco, a section should bo selected in  which tho government would havo a free hand,  and not in sections where competition would ho  met.  5. Prevention of tho landing in this provinco  of Chinese and Japanese laborers, and the dis-  couragoment of the employment of those already  horo by every fair means possible.  (i. Positive, not negative, laws should only be  passed. If the principle of a law is good, the  law should be Directive. The eight-hour day for  men working underground in metalliferous mines  is now generally accepted ns legislation in the  right direction. ������ I would oppose any legislation  that would repeal the penalty clause, or in any  other way impair the effectiveness of the law as  it now stands.  7. To give immediate oftect, by legislation, to  a resolution similar to thatknown as the Muloch  resolution, recently passed . by tho Dominion  House of Commons, which provides,for the payment of fair wages on pilblic works; or -Works?  aided by government subsidies. All contractors  doing work for either tho province or for municipalities should be required to pay labor tho rato"  of wages ruling in the municipality or neighborhood in which the work'is to be done, the number of noun? to constitute on all such work  to be fixed by statute.  8. Courts have'been established in Wliich individuals and corporations are compelled to  settle disputes, however trivial, disputes that  seldom have any bearing on'thc general prosper-  ity of tho community in wliich the disputants ro-  side; 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 thoir damaging  effects on tho goneral prosperity of whole communities and districts.   ���-.,������.  9. Mining for the precious metals is tho one industry which is benefiting, directly or indirectly,  every community in the province, and legislation  affecting the industry, in the way of taxation,  should be based ou the treatment and manufacture within the province of the product of the  mines, rather than on thu output of the mines .is,  at present.  10. The establishment of a bureau, with head-  Sutirtcre iujjritiHh Columbia and notm Great  iritain,- to systematically admhso al! the  natural icsources and scenic attractions of tho  provinco,   -  11. Organi/udtmmilclpsdltios should be given  tho contiol of thoir pubhc &uhooln, leaving to tho  provinco tho oaio of puullc schools in unmgan-  izcd districts and Iho maintenance vt normal and  technical schools. '  12. Trunk loadsand tiails should bo built and  maintained at public expense, and (ho cost of  raids and tiails to isolated mines and cmnmuni-  tits bliould be borne in part by the province.  13. .General hospitalt.should be undergo\eminent control, and ihe government should help  maintain physicians in hparsely settled sections  of the piovince. - j  31. The go\eminent in power should make  official announcement, fora reasonable lime before the legislative assembly meets, ofallpio-  &o��<'d IcgiM.vtion.

Instead of calling a public meeting to arrange for the celebration  of Canada's natal day, mayor Houston, on ' beingv'interviewed by a  delegation of more or less prominent citizens yesterday, decided that  a general committee, made up of  five citizens who take an interest in  sports, could be depended on to  take the matter in hand and carry  it out successfully. The following  gentlemen were selected: A. H. Buchanan, chairman; W. P. Teetzel,  J. W. Troup, J. J. Malone and F.  W. Peters. They met yesterday  afternoon and elected K. C. Beaton  general' secretary and G. W. B.  Heathcote treasurer. Mr. Buchanan  will have charge of aquatic sports,  Mr. Teetzel ��� of music and decorations, captain Troup of the  water carnival; Mr. Malone of  athletic sports, and Mr. Peters  of transportation and advertising. The following named were  selected as chairmen and members of the sub-committees to  handle the various departments of  the demonstration:  Water carnival.���Captain J. W.  Troup, chairman; M. Parry, Harold  Selous, W. J. Astley, Charles Hillyer, George S. Beer and captain  Gore.  Trades procession.-^-R W. Peters,  chairman; Will Irvine, T. J. Sims,  P. Chapman and Blake Wilson.

Galliher  and T. J. Sims.  " The meeting decided that the  appropriation for horse races should  be cut out of the program and the  funds hitherto expended in this  direction added to the aquatic portion of the carnival.  The finance. committee which is  made up of Grange V. Holt, W. J.  Thompson, Charles A. Waterman,  G. F. Beer, James Neelands, - John  Ghokliteh, T. >I. Ward aud H. R.  Cameron me��ts on Monday afternoon next An active canvass  will be, carried on and if citizens  generally respond as generously as  they have done on previous occasions, Nelson's Dominion Day  demonstration will easily eclipse  anything of a similar nature ever  attempted in the Kootenays.  Among the features which the  central committee has in view is a  race for the championship of Canada between Jake Gaudaur, champion sculler ofthe world -and Johnston, the crack North Pacific oarsman. The reputations of both men  are thoroughly established, and a  race between them here would  draw the attention of every lover  of. sport in the country. Four-  oared events - between Winnipeg  and Victoria crews, with a crack  local four to carry Nelson's colors,  are also among the possibilities.
