 ���J'"&1  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BV MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR.  NELSON:  TUESDAY MOOTING   JUNE 5  J900.  PEICE FIVE  CENTS  CDRTI8 ON THE PLATFORM  An Evasive Speech.  SSon.  Smith  Curtis  addressed   a  meeting  in   the   opera  house  last  uvening.     The   meeting    did   not  start on scheduled time because the  .speaker was forced to wait  for an  audience, and it was well  on   to  9  o'clock before Smith Curtis thought  there were .sufficient in the building  t o commence operations.    Although  it  was   reported   for  several  days  that the minister of mines had engaged the opera house for the evening, the sea of empty chairs whicli  greeted his appearance made some  excuse necessary. The excuse offered  by Mr. Curtis was that lie happened  A   to be stopping over in Nelson "and  '   some gentlemen had requested him  to give an address."    From this he  wout on to say that he had a purpose in visiting Nelson, in  fact the  j >i incipal reason for  his  visit was  ]>is   desiie  to  get  back  at Ralph  Smith and Mr. Hawthornethwhaite.  Having thus bowled' out  his  first  .statement he proceeded to pay his  icspects to Ralph Smith.  Lie said he could not understand  tiie position of Ralph Smith, and to  justify the fog in whicli lie found  himself he quoted one-half of Ralph  .Smith's famous statement,. The  li.alf which he chose was Ralph  Smith's statement that he would  support the Martin government's  platform if Martin had a majority  and undei took to enact it. He  also included Ralph Smith's statement that he did not believe the  Martin govsruiuonfc would be sustained but kept back the very important* statement cf Ralph Smith  that lie did not believe that premier Martin would carry out his  . promises oven should he be sustained.  Prom this Mr. Curtis took up the  govoii'inont's policy of repudiation  iu East Kootenay and defended the.  same, lie went over the .same  giouud covered in his first speech,  in winch ho claimed that the Crow's  Nest Coal Company was illegally in  possession of the subsidy Voted by  t !>o legislature several years ago. ,  The redistribution question was  t hen taken up. Tie said the Semlin  government refused to bring down  any redistribution until forced to  do so by Joseph Martin. Ho then  - -Icated .over some very thin ice in  attempting to defend Joseph Martin's action in violating his solemn  pledges to support the redistribution measure whicli the government  consented to bring in.  The lies which the othor people  woretelliug aboufc Joseph Martin  were thou dealt with.    He referred  particularly to the Martin policy of  intimidation of the  coal  miners of  ' Vancouver Island, and endeavored  to explain thafc premier Martin -did  noc mean to close down   the mines  of the New Vancouver Coal Company when he asked for an injunction to restrain the company from  working and which  the courts recused to grant him. _IIe knew-this  because  premier  Martin  told  him  so.   Another reason why it could  not be so was  that it  would  cost  the   company   $.'300,000   to   pump  the       mines       out       if -     they  li ad beeu enjoined from working by  t he injunction which premier Martin had applied for.   Personally he  Hsaid he was in favor of continuing  the fight against the New Vancouver Goal Company.    Tu this connection he denied that George Kennedy had  any authority to make  the   overtures-  wliich    lie   did   toJ  Halph Smith aud the New-Vancouver Coal Company on behalf of the  Martin government. lie would fight  the company to a finish, and would  nofc remain a member of the government if fche .suit was withdrawn.  Touching on the eight-hour law,  he denied the truth of Ralph  .Smith's statement that Joseph Martin had informed Messrs. Maepher-  s-on .and Matthews-of Vancouver  that lie never was in favor of the  eight-hour law and that he would  nofc enforce it. The argument  which he brought to refute this  Ftatement of Ralph Smith was thafc  Joseph Martin neA'er changed his  mind, that Ralph Smith's story implied thafc Martin had changed^is  mind by enforcing the eight-hour  law, and that therefore ifc could not  be true.  A slice of the Martin government's policy, with respect to the  i,oii-employment of the Chinese and  .Japanese, was sandwiched in here.  Smith Curtis said Mr. Cotton now  rgreed with premier Joe that the  allowed acts should be re-enacted,  ili  l.ut he cautioned his hearers against j  party was opposed to their re-enactment.  The eight-hour law was then  taken up again. The Provincial  Party he said were no good be-  causo there were not enough of  them. Candidate Fletcher and the  Conservatives were no good because  no matter what stand candidate  Fletcher took the party was opposed to the eight-hour law. The  AVilson Conservatives were in favor  of "an" eight-hour law, but they  would not accept "the" eight-hour  law. The Turnerites had openly  declared against the penalty clause  of the eight-hour law and they  were bound to emasculate it. The  Provincial Party, though sound on  the eight-hour law, was not deserving of support, because it was opposed to premier Martin and himself.  Candidate Houston was all right  on the eight hour law but if he was  elected he must join hands with  those who were opposed to the law.  He asked his hearers if candidate  Houston would sink his principles,  and met with such a demonstration  as should convince him that he  need have nothing to fear on that  score.  Mr. Smith Curtis then paid a  tribute to the sagacity of both candidate Houston and candidate  Fletcher and incidentally got in a  puff for himself. He said they both  took the stand that the repeal of  the penalty clause would only re:  suit in a renewal of the'agitation.  He might have added that The  TitnwNK.took this position before  the Martin government was created  and before he himself entered public life in this province. But he  did not.  Mr. Curtis then stated that candidate Houston was opposed to the  introduction of British capital for  the development of the mines of  Kootenay. This statement was  challenged,. and Mr. Curtis was  forced to read from the report of  tho speech in question Mr. Houston's  statement that he would not place  the slightest obstacle in the way of  the investment of British capital.  His retraction' was received with  cheers. ��� ��� ^ y  .    , -  Mr. Curtis then defended the  Martin railway scheme and said  that both candidate Houston and  candidate Fletcher were opposed fco^  ifc. He said it .would be a good  thing for Nelson as it would make  living cheap.  During the last hour of Smith  Curtis' speech repeated attempts  were made fco induce him to disclose who the Martin government's  candidate was in fche Nelson riding,  but to all the speaker turned a  deaf ear. As a last resource  fche question was finally written  down and handed to the speaker,  but even then he declined to answer it unfcif he had concluded his  long speech. Tie then said that he  thought the question had been an->  .swered before. This was received  with laughter. He then gave the  audience the involved answer which  candidate Hall had returned to the  question put by W. A. Galliher, and  added- that -he- would prefer- that  the electors should vote for candidate HaU.  When Mr. Curtis finished speaking there were loud calls for Galliher. Mr. Curtis did not wish for a  reply, and he endeavored to head it  off with the story that he did not  know anyone else desired to speak,  aud he was sorry that he had  talked so long, as the hour was  very late. Tho ciies for Galliher  continued, however, and the minister of mines had to give way.  Mr. Galliher was received with  great' applause. He explained as ifc  was after 11 o'clock he yielded to  the cry of platform with some diffidence, but lie would touch briefly  on two or three matters. He had  been identified with political campaigns for several years, but the  present was the first time he ever  saw a minister of a government  stumping in a constituency iuwhich  there was no avowed government  candidate. But one conclusion  could be drawn from this, and it  was that the government; had some  secret understanding with one of  the three candidates (applause). He  then asked why Dr. Hail did not  come out openly and say he was  supporting premier Martin, "Why  had Smith Curtis delayed in an-'  swering the question put to him?  Why did he merely quote the answer which Dr. Hall had mado?  Why nofc admit thafc Dr. Hall was  the Martin candidate?  Mr. Galliher then called attention to the faet that Dr. Hall was a  prominent member of the Liberal  Association of Nelson. This association sent a deputation  to Van  structed to oppose* Joseph Martin  and his government. What position therefore did Dr. Hall occupy?  He was a member of an association  whicli decided unanimously that  under no circumstances would it  support Joseph Martin or his government and yet Dr. Hall was now  out as a Martin candidate.  Mr. Galliher said he took ifc as a  good omen that Smith Curtis had  passed over Dr. Hall, had given but  slight attention to candidate Fletcher, but had reserved his attack  for John Houston, the  candidate  whom he personally was supporting.   This showed that Smith Curtis regarded candidate Houston as  the dangerous man in the contest  for   his    party,   and   he   was regarded   as     so    dangerous    that  Mr.     Curtis     could     not      deal  fairly with him upon the eight-hour  question.    Mr. Curtis did  not tell  his audience that The Tribune was  probably the first paper to defend  the eight-hour law.     Smith. Curtis  did not tell his audience  that Mr.  Houston in The Tribune day after  day upheld the eight-hour law when  it stood in need of champions to-de-  fend it and when the advocating of  it meant financial loss.   He asked  his hearers which was the candidate  worthy of the support of those who  desired to see the eight-hour law  enforced, the man who had personal  sacrifices   in   defending   it or the  candidate who developed a mushroom sympathy for it on the eve  of   an   election.      This   question  was   received   with applause, and  Mr.   Galliher   remarked that   any  other answer was unnecessary. Mr.  Galliher then attacked the Martin  railway scheme, and closed with a  strong argument in favor of the return of candidate Houston, which  was received with cheers for the  speaker and the candidate of his  choice.  Mr. Curtis started in to reply, but  the audience had heard enough  from him for one evening, and retired while he was still on the platform. ^   .  BOXERS AND MISSIONARIES  ginningtoturn black. Certain glands  have been removed iroiii the body.  It is said by physicians engaged by  the Chinese that the health officers  have been instructed to quarantine  the persons and laboratories of  these doctors.

PRETORIA STILL A MYSTERY  Mclnnes' Explanations.  Victoria, June 4.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Afc a meeting at  Northfield on Saturday evening \Y.  AV. B. Mclnnes denied that he was  a supporter of Martin, and read two  letters from that gen.tleman asking  him to come out ancl' support him.  He had never authorized Mr. Martin to say that - he would support  him, nor had he authorized any one  else to communicate such a thing  to Mr. Martin. Mr. Martin had  claimed Mr. McPhee as a supporter  and he had also claimed Mr. Rat-  cliffe in South Nanaimo. Indeed,  up to a very short time ago he had  claimed Ralph Smith as a supporter. With reference to his father's  position he would let the audience  into a little family secret. For the  past two years his father has been  in communication wifch the authorities at Ottawa in relation to resigning, being sick and tired of the  worry. - '    .  Mr. Turner���"That is untrue."  Mr. Mclnnes���"That is not an untruth, and the  recgrds  at  Ottawa  will bear me out."  ,  Letter Trom China.  Ellsworth, Maine, June 8.���Dr.  Mary Burnham, daughter of 0. ,R.  Burnham, who has charge of the  hospital or "compound" connected  with the Presbyterian mission at  Chinnan Foo. China, in a recent letter tells of the work of the "Boxers"  in that vicinity.  The letter was written a few days  before the massacre of several native. Christians in towns near Chin-  nan Fu and the killing from ambush of 20 soldiers iu a regiment  sent from Chinnan Fu to the scene  of the massacres. Miss rBurahain  says:  "The governor at Chinnan Fu  has succeeded in quelling all outward signs of the Ta La Hui (fBig  Knife' sect or 'Boxers') in the eity.  AVe cannot go "from the eity, however.-without a guardrand much of  the mission work is afc a standstill.  "The English consul, Mr. Campbell, is still here. He had two men  put to death for the murder of Mr.  Brooks. It was a cold-blooded  affair and was only possible because of the anti-foreign feeling at  Peking. I fear we have not heard  the end of the 'Big Knives.'  "The new governor is doing his  duty, bufc is crippled hy his subordinate officers.  "The head of the board of punishments (judge) has given > Mr.  Campbell, the English consul, much  trouble. Both theEnglish and the  Americans have asked their representatives to insist upon his removal.  "We are quite safe here now, but  ifc has come to our ears that we had  a narrow escape during the old  governor's term of oflice.' The 'Big  Knives,' emboldened by official  favor, had decided to loot our 'compounds' here. -  "This came to his ears, and he beheaded two or three men whom he  had in custody.  "From papers it would appear  that the movement wa.s going northward and slowly bnt decidedly  gaining ground. I fear there can  be only peace if it is partitioned,  and if partitioned, there will be a  long period of unrest."  Giant Starts up Again.  Rossland, June 4.���G. AV. Armstrong and A. D. Copleu of Spokane,  are iu the city. The latter is president of the Giant Mining Company,  and the former came here for the  purpose of resuming operations on  the Giant property, which was stopped about three months since, when  senator Turner, colonel Ridpath  and Mr. Sanders had an option on  the control of the stock of the company. Mr. Armstrong says that a  syndicate composed of Philadelphia  and Michigan capitalists Mhave obtained control of ^t&jp Giant company's stock and intends to push its  development. M. E.

Minneapolis ii, Detroit 5.  Boers Will Fight.  London, June 3���3:20 a. m.��� Of  official intelligence regarding what  is    transpiring    outside    Pretoria,  there   is little or nothing.     Lord  Roberts is silent.    Nevertheless by  piecing items together from various  correspondents ib would seem that  lord Roberts' immediate army is all  employed north of Johannesburg,  except   one   brigade, wliich is   at  Johannesburg.      Six   columns   are  converging on   Pretoria.     An undated news agency message from  Pretoria,    via   Lorenzo    Marquez,  June 4th, says: "Pretoria is now invested by the British.    No resistance will be offered.   The city will  be surrendered by the burgomaster  as   soon   as   a  formal  demand   is  made."  This message purports to come in  cipher. President Kruger commands the telegraph eastwards  from Pretoria aud telegraphic news  from Pretoria to Lorenzo Marquez  has ceased, but the messages of  newspaper correspondents continue  to pass to and fro * on the railway.  The latest to arrive at Lorenzo  Marquez being an account of events  at the capitol up to a late hour on  Friday night.  At that time, according to these  sources of information, the military  leaders had quite recovered from the  panic and had determined to defend  the town. One message, which is  dated June 1st, says :  "Pretoria is full of strange burghers but most of-the commandoes  are laagered outside. A great war  council of generals has just concluded its deliberations. Their decision as to the future military  course has nofc been made known.  Louis Botha and Delarey sat in this  council."  Another dispatch' brought to  Lorenzo Marquez and dated Pretoria, Friday, at midnight, says:  "The war council�� assumes, the  powers of 'government. Its members declare that the capital may  still bo successfully defended. -One  commander declared with the help  of God, 'the hour will still come'  when Great Britain will acknowledge the independence of the two  republics. A tremendous change  will yet come over the situation.  General Delarey said that Pretoria  would be defended to the utmost,  adding, 'There is every chance that  we will yet beat; fche enemy out of  the country.'  "President Kruger is somewhere  to the eastward, bub is iu constant  wire communication with the leaders here. There is, however, a deep  feeling of anger against him on account of what is now called his unnecessary flight, and because he  and the officials took ali the gold  and left their subordinates unpaid.  The latest phase of public opinion  is a marvellous revival of courage."  From Lorenzo Marquez conies _a  'dispatch dated June 4, saying:  "Ifc ih known , thzifc some great  British movement is in progress  outside Pretoria. The mysterious  movements of president Kruger's  secretary and physician, particularly their secret visit to the Dutch  warship Friesland, whicli is in the  harbor hcie, has aroused a suspicion that important personages are  expected."  The news from the minor theatres  of hostilities is- less cryptic. - Tiie  Boer operations to break lord Roberts' communications have been  completely bnfiled, 'and the Boer  columns are in danger of being surrounded by tho British forces at  Ficksburg, Heilbron. and Lindley,  General Rundle, instead of throwing himself against the Boors entrenched at Bedulpberg, moved to-  word Ficksburg and established  communication with general Brabant. The Boers marched parallel with Rundle, intending to seize  a strong position ou the Ficksburg road, but Rundle gob there  first. The fifteen hundred Boers  who were in this movement  are now reported to be going  elsewhere. The correspondent with  General Rundle continues to point  out the hardness of the fight of last  Tuesday bufc he believes that it will  be fche last real resistance. Colonel  Lloyd was thrice wounded, Drummer Haynes. while aiding colonel  Lloyd, was hit iu fche hand, which  was resting near fche colonel's heart.  General   Buller's   guns  throw a  Transvaal. Beyond Lichtenberg  the Boers are assembling to oppose  general Hunter. Colonel Mahon  effected a juncture with Hunter on  Thursday at Marieboga.  BOERS CAPTURE PRISONERS  White Flag Abused.  Maseru, Basutoland,  June  1.���  General Brabant's Horse have been  the subjects of several small  captures at the hands of the Boers.  Lieutenant Rundle was captured  with 20 men, while searching a  farmhouse in the Ficksburg district.  Two of the enemy were injured.  Lieutenant Lees and two men were  captured while commaudering. Another patrol of Burgher horse, numbering 20 men, was surrounded and  captured.  Count Gleichen sent 13 men of  the Provincial Horse with a flag of  truce, to Senekal, to demand the  surrender of that place. The Boers  captured the entire party and, after  robbing the men of all but their  clothing, sent them to Vrede,  whence some of them managed to  escape. Most of those who succeeded in eluding their guards were  captured.   Rich Atlin Gold Fields.-  Vancouver, June 4.���-[Special to  The Tribune.|���-0.  D. Newton arrived   direct   from   Atlin   tonight  bringing   news   of   a   cleanup   of  $10,000   on   Willow   creek   claims  owned by Thomas Dunn and ex-  alderman Skinner    of   Vancouver  aud ex-Mayor Braekett of Minneapolis.   The cleanup was the result  of about ten  days' work and was  completed ou May 26th.   The same  company owns 10 claims and will  take out $300,000 with over  $200,-  000 clear profit.   Pn the Caledonia  group a cleanup has also jusfc beeu  made   of $2300   giving an ounce  and a half per day per man, which  is an astonishingly 'high result.   J.  Copeland of Vancouver has bonded  12 claims from Seattle owners afc  $(50,000, and'J, H: Smith of London  has also bonded a group on Parliament   creek for- $65,000.   A   very  rich vein  has  been  struck  on the  Anaconda, lord Hamilton's group,  on which the stamp  mill  hits jusfc  started running.  The Yellow Jacket, one of the finest claim*  in  the  Atlin camp, is tied up by litigation.  Newton says that there will  be  ut  least six large hydraulic properties  working this season  besides other  smaller, ones, and   altogether  the  clean-up will amount to $3,000,009.  PRETORIA IS IN CONFUSION  Notes of the Operations.  Cape Town, June 3.���The telegraph to Pretoria is still open, bufc  the town is in great confusion.  There has been a general exodus,  among those taking part in it being  the foreign lighting legions. Six  special trains left on Wednesday  last, and one of them is reported  to have been derailed. No British  refugees have arrived.  London,     June    4.���London   isv  today enjoying  Whit   Monday, a  bank holiday, and is not disturbed-  by engagements between Boer an<K-  British in South Africa. The public  are full of confidence that Roberts  will   reach   Pretoria before  many  hours have elapsed,   The latest explanation of the delay consists in  the supposition that he is giving  several columns of his flank an opportunity to advance and envelope  such of  the Boers as are in the  neighborhood of Pretoria.  In the Orange River  colony, the ,  burghers are reported to be keeping-  a close watch upon president Steyn  to prevent him  from  leaving  the  commandos in the lurch  Tight at a Socialist Meeting.  Vancouver, June i.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���There was a free  fight ou Sunday night at a meeting in the socialistic labor party's  rooms.

He forthwith formed  the United Socialist-Labor party of  British Columbia, and* it was  one" of their meetings that  was interrupted on Sunday evening.  ���A. Spencer, the organizer of the  Socialists, entered the hall with  half a dozen friends and asked some  questions of McLean. McLean refused to answer and a free fight  was started, and soon a score of  men were engaged. Today Spencer  had a Socialist named Jeffries bound  over in a thousand dollars on a  charge of threatening to murder  the organizer. -Tomorrow the party  leaders are charging Spencer iu connection wifch the fight at the  meeting.   Football in the Slocan.  Kaslo, Juno -J.-���{Special to The  Tribune.}���Association football is  the great game in the Slocan this  year. The Slocan football' team  was formed a short time since and  the first game of an arranged  series was played here today between Kaslo and Silverton. Ifc was  an exciting game. The Silverton -  ians were much heavier than their  opponents and had a better combination, but Kaslo was tricky and  plucky and they only lost by one  goal fco nothing. The next game in  the schedule will take place at  Sandon, between that town and  Kaslo on June 17th.  Veterans in the Fatherland.  Berlin, June 4.���The president  and officers of the New York Krie-  gerbund have returned here from  Munich to  participate in  the traditional so-called Schrippenfost afc  Potsdam, at the invitation of the  emperor.

His majesty responded briefly, carefully avoiding anything of political  import.   Afterwards  the   emperor  informally inquired about tiie personal conditions of. each delegate,"  wishing them finally a pleasant sojourn here and  a happy  return to  the   United    States,   -*�����    country  which   I, esteem   most highly   on  many accounts."    Emperor William,  spent Pentecost' in  the  usual  way  and visited   today  the  traditional  festival  commemorating  the foundation of  the infantry instruction  battalion, which occurred   mainly  on the Mopke, the  large square before  the palace of Potsdam.

London, June 5.���The Lorenzo'  Marquez correspondent of the  Times, telegraphing June -ifch, says:  '���Lorenzo Marquez is crowded with  foreigners who had been assisting  the Boers up to a few days ago.  Now, like the proverbial rat,- fchey  are leaving the sinking ship. The  more intelligent among them speak  any way but favorably of the treatment they had received at fche hands  of the Boers. Many of them, after  months of service in the field,  find themselves practically penni-'  less, for only in exceptional cases  has any remuneration been granted.  This is contrary to the understanding upou which many of them accepted service. The Germans, both  civil and military, appear to be particularly disgusted with the conduct of the Transvaal government.  Not; a few Irish-Americans, some of  whom only recently joined, are returning to the United States."  ��� Glean-up of the Waterloo  GiiBEXWoon.

This  was what Smith Curtis attempted  at the opera house last evening,  but his auditors frustrated the  attempt.  Hon. Smith Curtis told his audience last evening that candidate  Houston was all right on the eight-  hour question, but the objection to  him was that he would not swallow  Martin and liis government. As  Smith Curtis places his salary as  minister of mines above the eight-  hour law and everything else, he  advised his listeners to vote for  candidate Hall who was all right  for premier Joe whether he was  sound on anything else or not.  Smith Curtis no doubt has a monopoly of this Opinion as well as the  salary in question. *}���-''  For fully half au hour last evening Hon. Smith Curtis strove to  create the impression that Ralph  Smith, the labor leader, is a creature of the New Vancouver Coal  Company. This is the same Ralph  Smith whom premier Martin endeavored to secure as a colleague,  and whom candidate Hall endeavored to curry favor with before he was forced to admit that  he was a Martin candidate in  disguise.

He added  that the only thing he knew  about him was that he would not  vote against premier Martin and  himself.

A decided surprise was sprung on  the people of .Sandon yesterday  when the news got out that the  Slocan Star miue was being closed  down. Byron X. White, general  manager of the company, arrived,  from Minneapolis early in the week  and gave instructions to shut the  mill down and cut the.foree in the  mine to 4G men. No explanation is  offered or reason given for the  action of the company in the  matter. <  -  Byron N. White left 011 yesterday  morning's train for'the White Horse  * Rapids district in Alaska.  The Star mine until yesterday  was employing 108 men, .and is in  better shape just now than ever  before in the history of the property. It was confidently expected  that the Star would , be a .steady  employer of labor this summer and  would furnish a large amount of  business for the local merchants.  The close down came as a surprise, and while it ? may "be only  temporary, It is rather disheartening at the present stage of the  town's existence to have one of the  best���mines -in���British��� Columbia  closed down without positive assurance of an early resumption of  oDera tions.  lives in  a shooting affray at the  court house today.   They were Felix Roberts,  correspondent  of the  Galveston News,  Sid Roberts  and  Sheriff Noel Roberts.    A few weckh  ago sheriff   George Wall was  shot  to death by Curd Boorse, as the result of an old feud. Wall's nephew,  Noel Roberts, was appointed sheriff.  Last Saturday the second life was  taken in the quarrel when Eugene  Wall, son of the murdered sheriff,  killed Benjamin Brooks, a member  of the opposing faction.  Today the  contending faction met in the court  house.     All   were heavily armed  and   quickly lined   up   for battle.  The sheriff and two of his family  fell before the deadly-fire of their  enemies.    More* trouble is feared,  as many of the.dead men's, friends  have   started   to., the   scene  from  Nacogdoches.

B  The meeting at the opera house  last evening demonstrated clearly  that the Joseph Martin policy of  repudiation in East Kootenay and  intimidation  on Vancouver Island  has few admirers in  Nelson."   The  race in the Nelson riding is between  candidate Houston  aud  candidate  ,Meteher,  wifch candidate Houston  well in the lead.    The third candidate is a man. who is  ashamed of [  his party, and whoso party appears  to be equally ashamed of him.  How. Smith Curtis is a politician  who lias no regard for fclie truth  while upon  the   public   platform.  Last evening he .solemnly told his  audience that in Vancouver the labor parfcy was supporting premier  Martin and   his   candidates.   This  statement was made in the face of  the fact thafc in Vancouver.there is  a straight   labor party in opposition to premier Martin and his government.    The statement of Smith  Curtis was an insult to the intelligence of his audience.  Hon. Smith Curtis has dropped j  into the habit of his  leader.   He f  now talks against time in the hope  of shutting oufc any reply fco what  he   may   say.   This   is   one   way  &BEEN   IS   THE   MAN.  Sihcito!it,in.  Last night's meeting, which had  been called by John Keen, must  have been an eye-opener for thafc  gentleman. From iirst to hist it  showed itself unmistakably for  Green, and the rounds of applause  which greeted thafc gentleman  throughout liis address was a great  contrast* to the dismal silence in  which Mr. Keen spoke. Even the  Mai tin speaker, Mr. MeGreer of  Vancouver, received a better reception thaii the ''Business Man's  Candidate."  J. G. Gordon, who occupied the  chair, first called upon candidate  Keen to address tho one hundred  electors present. Mr. Keen is a polished speaker, one whom under  other circumstances it would be a  pleasure to listen to, bufc the grist  of his remarks were too abstract to  create any enthusiasm, even among  fche few supporters he had before  him. His speech was received in  stony silence, enough to dishearten  even such an ambitions gentleman  as Mr. Keen, whose sole aim seems  to be a general overhauling of the  Mineral Act.  To judge from last night's meeting, Green's vote here will more  than double the combined vote of  the two other candidates.  Canada Drag i Book Go.

'Salt Luke Tribune.  ��� We take ifc that the Doer-British  war is  over, or  as good as  over.  The result has been inevitable from  the first.    Since Kruger issued his  ultimatum, the thinking world has  known  that  the  integrity  of  the  British'empire depended upon conquering a peace in South Africa, no  ,inatter at what cost of blood aiid  Ji^ treasure.    Had  it   failed, England  would uot only have been obliged  to  get out of  South   Africa,   but  .North   Africa  Gas   well,   and   her  prestige all around the world have  been shattered.    Of course, no one  on this side of the Atlantic knows  1.I10 secret history of what prompted  Oom.Paul to undertake the apparently  impossible  task  of   lighting  Great  Britain  to a  finish, but  he  evidently    counted Upou   making  swift work of capturing Ladysmith  and  Kimberley, that   there would  then [follow a general uprising in  Cape Colony, and then help from  some of the enemies of Great Britain  in   Europe.      But   everything  failed despite the splendid bravery  of the Boers; the superb generalship that was displayed until Cronje  was  captured,   Joubert   died   and  Villebois-Mareuil was killed.  Bufc ifc , nil ,has availed nothing.  Tiie army' has been ground to  ��� pieces, aud,only a remnant is fleeing  Ijei'ora ihe advancing British host.  Wd do nofc expect auy guerrilla  warfa re. . That could avail nothing,  pnd the Caucasian does not wage a  useless warfare merely for revenge.

When  it is taken  .into consideration that the  native  (population iu the districts immedi-  .ately affected by the war, is several  limes  larger than the  residential  ���white population  in those terrifcor-  - ies, it will-bo���recognized_that_tbe  tijative in peace or war Is in South  j&Sirica a political factor numerically, at any rate, of immense importance.  I can only reply that when I leffc  the native territories after the in-  esfcment of Ladysmith, after the  ,.-s had overrun Natal almost to  i��oe��.  *Wt he  gaC  ^es of Maritaburg, after  ��\ffcer the &^d disaster of Colenso,  from Tugela io the Komati, from  tho coast to the Drakensburg, lhe  whole native population were convinced tlnu; tne ultimate issue  would be to the glory of Britain,  juid I don't think that unless Brifc-  i-hcrs themselves as a body admitted otherwise tho native mind  would deviate a single thought  from that which is today with  thorn an absolute conviction. Almost every native starts that  .hypothesis on the foundation that  -ihe British beat the Zulus. That  common knowledge has buoyed the  native in the firm belief thafc fche  n.ttion. that broke the Zulu power  is unconquerable. Implanted as it  is in the breast of every iudoda,  who speaks or thinks with the  r/_\_\ti or Basuto, nothing but the  complete extinction of British institutions and British official life  ���will remove the conviction. Their  faith in the JMatubu ka'lu Kwini  (soldiers of the queen) is unfaltering.  There is another* very strong factor that, under present circumstances, conserves to Britain the  .loyalty and confidence of the ha-  Vivc-4���quite apart, be it understood, from the different treatment  that is meiedout to them by peoples of the respective territories���  iiml tln?t is the wonderful instinct)  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, IT.

Like  all races in which might is recognised as right, the hereditary trait  of suspicion and distrust in the  South African has served to sharpen the faculty of observation to an  extraordinary keenness and temper.  He accepts no statement, admits of  no act having been made or committed without some ulterior motive.  About the time when the Boers  were overrunning the beautiful Natal farms 011, the Mooi river, I  chanced upou an old Zulu who had  come down from a northern location, and was full of the raiding  and destruction of property that  was going on- at every homestead  visited by a commando. "Ah," said  he, "the Boers are in a great hurry.  Truly they mean to eat before they  die."    ;  Shortly before sailing for England I met a fine young chief from  the Pongolo district, who could  have mustered a couple of thousand  men. He. was bewailing his fate, as  he had been told that our government would not allow natives to  join the British troops in the war.  "How." he asked, "can a man sit  in his hut when there is a hunt at  his gate?"  "Well," I observed, chaffingly,  "fche Boers will be glad to have  you." ; ...

The Emily Edith group near here  is about to be taken over by an English company at a purchase price  of $275,000, says the Silvertonian.  The nominal capital of the new  company has been placed at $375,-  000. Engineer J. D. Kendall, upon  whose report the deal is being made,  says in regard to the property:  "The contour of the ground in regard to the veins is such that the  latter can be readily reached by  tunnels for a long time to come.  The stratas are soft and cheaply  worked, wages are as usual in the  /west, timber is abundant^; and  ;^mple* water can be obtained for  both dressing and power purposes;  in fact; the environment is as near  ideal as it ever is or can be expected in a mining property."

Electors of thi- M:l&o\�� Ridi.vc  Gentlemen���As the unanimous choice of a duly  constituted convention of the suppoiteis. of the  Provincial Paity in tho Nelnon tiding, I am befoie jou as fi candidate for iepicseut.it ive of the  Nelson riding in the next; provincial iegsslatiuo.  In this connection I desire to solicit j our void  and influence in my behalf. Belie\insr that  every man aspnimrfoi membership should place  himself on lccoid on the main issue I UikeUus  oppoitumty of stating that I am in f.ivoi of legislation upon lhe following lines ���  1. Representation in the legislative assembly,  should bo based on population, with such modifications as-will give spaisel\ Mjttled distiicts pio  poi tionately linger lepiesentation than cities and  thickly settled fai mmg distiicts  2. All legislation should be general, and not  special. A beginning hns been made in this  direction by t he ei!ii.ctnient of laws under which  cities can be incoipoiatetl, companies foi mod,  and water records, obtained. These bhoiild be  added to by the passage Of a general rail waj incorporation act, and one fening nimuciphlitics  the same pow ers to acquire water r^coidh us sue  now accorded private corporations. *  ^>. Pubhclands should liekopi for actual sottle  ment, and land subsidies should not be gianted  to aid tho building of i.ailwajs that when built  ale owned bj corpoiations,  1. (iovemnieiil ownership of ladwajs is no  moie a theory than municipal ownership of  public utilities. Both ha\ p been tried and found  to work for the public good when capably nnd  honestlv managed ;butvin making a commencement in government ownership of lailwajsin  tins; pi ounce, a bection should be selected m  which the govei nment would have a free hand,  and not m sections wheie competition would be  mut. >  5. Prevention of the landing in this province  of Chinese and Japanese laboi on,, and the discouragement of the einploi ment of thoso alie.tdy  herc by even fair means possible.  (>. Positiv e, not ncpfativ e, laws should only be  passed, [f the punnple of a law is good, the  law should be olicetne. The eight-hom day for  mpii woi king underground 111 inoUilhfei oufa mines  is now goncially accepted us legislation in the  right dnection. I would opposo any legislation  that wouldlepeal the penalty clause, oi In any  other whj impair the effectiveness of the law as  ir now btands.  7.

S3  can stockholders are fully able to  protect themselves. ��� These negotiations being under .way account  for the present inactivity around  the Emily Edith.       Martin Acknowledges Billy.  News Advertiser.  Premier Martin has in answer to  a query on   the   point,   admitted  that Mr. William   "Wallace Bruce  Mclnnes, the soi-disant "Independent" candidate for North Nanaimo,  is a supporter of his.   This makes  certain   what   most    regarded   as  previously well assured as part of  an implied "family compact."   Indeed, to do Mr. Mclnnes, jr. bare  justice, there is no other course well  open for him as a dutiful son.   His  sire's governmental oflice depends  according to sir Wilfred   Laurier  who certainly should know, upon  the success at the coming election  of Mr. Joseph Martin.   What else  then can Mr. Mclnnes the younger  do, than stand by the nominee of  the lieutenant-governor?   In so doing, however, now that this circumstance   is    corroborated    by   the  premier himself, Mr. W. W. B. Mclnnes   takes   very   large   risks  of  failure in standing for one of the  Nanaimo constituencies,  since the  action of   Mr.   Joseph Martin   on  questions of vital import to   the  Island Coal Oity and its environs  has been decidedly adverse to the  general interests of that district.

Paris, June 4.���The funeral service at fche Church of fche Magdalene  today of Maitrc I'alateuf, counsel  before high court, was made the  occasion of a noisy demonstration  by a body of Nationalists.   'After  the funoral services M. Coppe, who  represented Palateuf," iusisted upon  delivering a political speech  under  the porch of the church.   He denounced the high court and senate  amidst shouts of approval from 30  Nationalists, including M. Barillier,  Gaston, Mary, ancl a number of leading counsellors,   He drove away in  a cab, brandishing liis hat in his  hand  crying, "Vive Coppe." "Vivo  Deroulede,"   Tho crowd  looked on  wonderingly and in dead  silence,  but   a   workman   responded with  "Vive Loubct,"  "Vive   la Iiepub*  lique," whereupon the partisans of  the   Nationalists   rushed on   him,  beating him insensible.    In an instant the man's face was covered  with blood and he was  with great  difficulty   rescued   by   the police,  who pounded  the assailants  with  clubs and arrested the ringleaders.  CITV AFFAIRS TRANSACTED  Weekly Council Meeting.  The members present at last  night's session of the eity council  were: Mayor Houston, aldermen  Wilson, McKillop, Irvine and Morrison. The docket of business was  comparatively light.  The board of .works submitted a  report embodying the following  recommendations:  That a crossing bo laid on Hall  Mines road at the intersection of  Kootenay street, and that a street  light be placed thereat; thafc the  city bear the expense of placing  electric lights in the basement of  the public school, and the Municipal Band given free light for practices; thafc Richard street from  Stanley to Ward street be made  passable i'or teams; that stone  curbing be laid on the south  side of Baker street from Josephine to Ward streets and a  15-foot walk be laid on same section  to grade; thafc a 15-foot walk be  laid on the east side of Josephine  street from Baker street to Victoria  street; that the contract for water  connections with Strachan Bros, be  discontinued and that in future  such connections be made by the  city under the supervision of the  city engineer; that the electric  light system be extended to Willow  street and that the general hospital  be granted a rebate of 50 per cent  on its lighting account.  The report was considered in sections and carried.  Teresa Fahey, nurse, wrote refusing the cityjs compromise offer  of $120 for services at the detention  hospital. On motion of aldermen  Irvine and Morrison Miss Fahey's  full claim of $105 was passed and a  check will be issued for the amount,  .lid. McKillop gave notice of a  bylaw to fix the rate of assessment  for the year.  [t was moved that a 3 5-foot walk  be laid to the alley and a 10-foofc  walk for the balance of the block  on the east side of Stanley street  between Baker, and Vernon street.  The resolution was carried.  The fact was brought up thafc  the arrearages on electric lights  and water rates amounted to $2600  and a suggestion was made that  where ratepayers were three  months in arrears fche "supply would  be-cufc off. It was resolved to have  notices prepared insisting upon  prompt payment.  An estimate of the amount required for fche year was submitted  by the board of works, as follows:  On jsewers account, $15275; on  waterworks account. $18500; on  ���electric light account. $11740. This  wifch an item of $25,000 for1 macadamizing Baker street made fche total  sum required fco be raised by means  of debentures about $70,000. The  exact amounts will be determined  within a short time and the initiative taken in the direction of getting the bylaws under way.  Gold Supply Increasing.  New York, June 4.���The treasury department's estimate of the  amount of .money in circulation on  June 1st shows an increase for the  United States of. $14,102,408 for the  month in spite of the gold exports  of over $10,000,000 and the taking  up_of the_treasury surplus of nearly  $5,000,000, The prospects of au  early resumption of gold receipts  from the Transvaal, fche expectation  that shipments will be soon received  from Cape Nome and fche Klondike  and tho high rate of production reported by American mines everywhere arouses discussion as to the  future effect on prices likely to be  produced by this large Influx of  gold.

H. Buchanan, F. W.  Peters, J. J. Malone, W. F. Teetzel,  and G. V. Holt and K. C. Beaton,  secretary.  *��� The secretary reported that answers from Winnipeg and the coast  had been received, and ifc was decided to wire at once accepting  their offers, thus ensuring the presence of those four-oared crews at  the races here.  G. V. Holt, chairman of the  finance committee, stated that the  promised contributions amounted  to $2500, but that they hoped to  raise another $1000. Appropiiations  were made to the various sports on  a $3000 basis, though it does not include various items of expense  which are sure to be incurred.  The preparations this year will  be most elaborate, and the evening  water carnival will be on a magnificent scale, a large appropriation  having been made for fire works,  decorations, etc. The four-oared  race between Winnipeg, Vancouver  and Victoria should prove a drawing card, and there will be the  .usual events for local competitors.  The land sports, -which will include baseball, are being well organized, and all the principal towns.  in East and West Kootenay, Boundary and also Spokane will be  asked to send their best athletes.  To fully carry out this program  more money is required, bufc there  is every confidence that NelsonUes  will rise to the occasion with their  usual liberality. Subscription lists  are now open at four banks and at  fche offices of the,Miner and Tribune, where donations from 50 cents  up will be duly received and acknowledged.  Statue for Rochambeau.
