Array DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAE.  NELSON:   SATURDAY MORNING   JUNE 9 J900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE CANDIDATES'LAST SHOT  The  paigtt was held in the  tfc  Hall Still Wobbling.  last meeting   of   tho   catn-  opnra  house  last evening.    It was called by candidate 1 fall's committee, and lasted  about nn hour  and a  half,   during  t ho greater part of which time candidate Hall labored to convince his  hearers that he was uot  a. Martin  man.    It can hardly be regarded as  complimentary, either to  a candidates   sincerity   or   his ' integrity,  that at the close of a campaign  he  , .should find himself in the  position  which Dr.  HaU  occupied.    It  told  .   heavily against .candidate   in   the  meeting and will no doubt. operate  in tiie same way at the polls today.  Wheu a candidate cannot be placed  in a straight contest,  it  is  idle  to  attempt to place him  in the varied  issues which   he   might   be  called  itpori to face in the legislature.  Candidate   Hall   was    the    first  speaker.    He referred to. the uncertain nature of his candidature, and  sign in endeavored to explain where  ho  stood.    He said that while  he  was absent from the  city  false reports had  been  circulated  regarding him, and he desired to reiterate  his position as an independent Liberal.    In  proof of this he quoted  from an interview published in the  Miner   before   the  doctor   flopped  over to Martin, in which he was represented as  stating  that  he  was  opposed to .Toe Martin as a leader,  bub that he would go to Victoria to  build up and not to tear down.  Dr."  Hull endeavored to make his hearers   believe  that his  position  was  uuchunged on  the  subject  of Mr.  Martin.    But  it is   different  with  the doctor iu  Ymir.    Ho  then  endeavored  to  explain  why,  in   his  opinion,  an   independent member,  single-handed,    could     accomplish  more than a party man in thelegis-  lasure.      There   were   rumors,   he  phhI, that ho had formed a combine  with Mr. Fletcher to split the labor,  vote   and    defeat    Mr.    Houston,  There never was a combine of a'ny  "description, and he was in the fight  co stay. Referring lo the 489 voters,  who   were  objected   to,   Dr.  Hnll  accused Mr. Fletcher aiid Ids .party  of   bqing   at   the  bottom  of   the  scheme,- which he denounced as contemptible,   and   worthy   only   of  . severe    reprimand.      St   is  worth  noting that the doctor had  no  interest in the said 489 electors until'  candidate   Houston    succeeded   in  having thoir names replaced upon  thu voters' list.  The speaker devoted some attention to..Mr. Fletcher's   candidacy.  Mr. Fletcher, ite said, was,  running  in the Conservative iuterest, which  could not possibly tetania working party to  the legislature  and  would bo forced to coalesce with  the Turnerites, whoso record in the  matter of land grants to railroads  he attacked vigorously.   The Conservatives, he added, were divided  among   themselves.     Turning    to  Houston, the   speaker stated that  _the_Provineial -Party-had -but-ten-  candidates  in the running, and a  fair       estimate       would        place  their    successful     candidates    at  one-half      this     number.      With  .so      few      representatives      the  Provincial Party would be practically helpless.   The doctor failed to  explain why candidate Fletcher and  candidate   Houston   could   accomplish nothing with small parties,  while he could accomplish everything  single handed.    The doctor  read his platform over, commenting  on the various planks at more or  le** length.     His  solution  of the  Oriental labor question was* that a  commission from Ottawa should be  brought into the country for some  months in order that they might  grasp the situation thoroughly.   In  tegard to the public ownership of  railroads he stated that the subject  was one requiring deep study, and  that he was not now prepared to  go further  than  to  commend the  principle in a general way. '  Candidate Flether was then introduced and announced himself as  a straight Conservative candidate,  and the nominee in convention. In  referring to his opponents, Mr.  Flethchor remarked that the community had a strong suspicion that  Hon. Smith Curtis did not come  into the riding to secure moral support or for his health, but to advance Dr. Hall's interests. Knowing Dr. Hall to bo a man of his  woi'd, however, he was prepared to  accept Dr. Hall's statements. Ho  put forth the claim that the Conservatives were tho only party  which could secure a working ma-  jot ity, despite what had been said  to the eautrary by Dr. Hall.    The  eight-hour law was one of the vital  questions of the day, and on this he  took the stand that the law should  be left on the statute book. His  position on the Oriental labor question was that the matter could be  got at in a square, straightforward  manner by going to the proper authorities.  After the   Municipal   band   had  contributed   a   spirited    selection,  candidate Houston was introduced  and   was accorded   a right   royal  welcome.    His speech was liberally  applauded,   and though   the Hall  minority caused an interruption, it  was most evident that the Houston  element was in the majority.   "The  difference between   Dr.   Hall   and  myself," said Mr. Houston, "is that  he started the, campaign  with one  plank, a/nd wound up with 14 or 15.  His one plank in the start was  opposition to Martin in and out   of  the house.   You all know where he  is at now.    In Nelson he does Jiot  know Martin, but in ^Ymir he is a  solid Martin  man.    I  started into  this campaign*with 14 planks, but  wind up with one, and on this plank  niy ''.supporters'     stand     solidly.  It is that tomorrow, when the ballots are counted, John Houston will  have more votes than both of his  opponents combined.  (Cheers). We  went into this campaign determined  to send a man  to Victoria backed  up by the large majority of the  electors Of this, the most important  constituency, so that when-, he got  up oh the'floor of the house at Vic-"  toria he could state that he represented the whole of the electors of  Nelson riding, and not a faction.  (Applause').    I do not propose  to  make an extended reference to the  issues of the contest, believing that  the electors are aboutas well posted  as  the candidates  are   (laughter),  but I will refer instead to a few of  the local issues.    Dr. Hall has taken  to himself all the credit for legislation benefitting laboring men since  he entered the city council; but  1 leave it with you to say what he  did in this  direction -..before  entering the council (laughter.)   Did he  ever   try  to   discourage    Chinese  labor?   The men who weie herein  1891  remember that   the Chinese  question,was a.-live issue at that  time.    Who then took  part in the  fight against Chinese labor ? (cries  of Houston.)    Well it was certainly  nofc Dr. Hall.    S was not at that  time au aspirant for public office,  so that it cannot be Said 1  was actuated by1 any motive other than  that'of principle (applause.)    J believed then, and I Jbelieve now, that  the best way to rid this country of  Chinese and Japanese is not  to employ them (cheers.)   So far, as- my  position ou  tho  eight-hour law i.s  concerned I dojiofc think  there is a  man in^ this audience who doubts  for a moment where I stand.   It is  a point for the electors to pass upon,  and I have ,no doubt as to their  verdict.     (Applause).     It   will be  for   the man  who   stood  for the  eight-hour law from start to finish.  (Cheers).   My advice to the electors  is simpl$ that you should go  home  and consider seriously which of the  candidates-will prove to be the best  representative.    If you believe Dr.  Hall is a better man  than myself,  send him to Victoria.     If yon  believe Mr. Fletcher to be a better  man than either of  as, vote for  him.    Sn concluding I will express  the opinion that none of the parties  in the contest will be strong enough  to form a government singleha tided.  A coalition   must   be formed and  1 wish to state that the party with  which I am identified is composed  of men of   principle and that not  one of thorn will sacrifice a single  principle   even   to   obtain   office."  (Applause aud cheers).  Dr. Hall concluded the speaking  briefly. He remarked that if Mr.  Fletcher said Hon. Mr. Curtis came  to Nelson in the interests of the  speaker, Mr. Fletcher had slated an  untruth. The only possible ground  for such a statement was that Mr.  Curtis had advised the voters to  cast their ballots for Hall, an independent candidate, rather than for  Houston or Fletcher, whose parties  were opposed to the government.  If returned his policy, would be to  support such legislation as he  felt was in the interest of the  people generally. After denying  the statement that he was a Martin  candidate, Dr. Hall remarked that  he had done much for the working  men prior to hi.s election to the  council, as a result of which he said  he owed bills at various hotels,  where working men had been cared  fo��', and which he would never recover, lie wonnd-np by appealing  for the suffrages of his hearers and  expressed the hope that every vestige of feeling would vanish after  election day.  BULLER HEARD FROM AGAIN  Trying to Secure Laing's Net.  London, June 8.���General Buller  has cabled the war office that lie  hopes he has obtained a position  from which he can render Laing's  Nek. untenable.  London, June 8.���The war office  has received the following dispatch  from general Buller:   "Yellowboom  Farm, June 8th���On June Oth general Talbot Coke, with the Tenth  Brigade and  South African -Light  Horse, siezed Van Wyck Hill.

"  During the   day, and  following, we got two 4.7 and two  12-poimd naval guns to Van Wyck  hill, and two five-inch guns on to  the southwestern spur of Inkewelo.  Under cover of their fire general  Hildyard   today assaulted   all the  spurs betAveen Botha and Inkewelo,  The attack was planned by Hildyard, and carried out with immense  dash by the troops, for whom no  mountains  were too steep.

The war department  has received? reports from captain  If. M._,Day, of the' 43rd volunteers,  and first lieutenant J. T. Sweeny of  that regiment, who commanded  the rescue party,'giving all the details of.. the attack, the" s\ege and"  the relief.  According to these reports the  attack of the garrison at Gatubig  began without, warning on April  lath, from the hills on all sides, and  from every vantage point in towu.  Tuesday morning haudfuls of burning hemp' were thrown into the  barracks by insurgents in a church,  and soon the soldiers' refuge was  on fire. All efforts to subdue the  fire failed, and finally the little  band made a daslr for the river  bank. Some were killed before the  bank was reached, others fell down  in a boat, in which they were attempting to make the opposite  shore, and when a trench was  finally dug with bayonets, there  were but 18 of the 31 men' left to  man it. Here, for two days more,  corporal Carson handling his men  with      the      judgment      of      a  veteran, held     _out___ under _   a_  terrible fire until Sweeny's command, which had been ordered to  supply fche garrison at Gotubig, and  was on its way up the river on the  Laouwig, arrived. Not until within  a quarter of a mile of Gotubig, says  lieutenant Sweeny, in hit. report,  did they hear the noise of the engagement. Then he realized that  he and his men were sorely needed,  and ordered the captain of the  steamer to run his boat at top  speed. The steamer came to Gotubig under a rain of bullets front  both shores. The small, boats were  lowered, a landing effected, and the  rescuers fought their way through  the open to their beseiged comrades  in the trenches, buried the dead  within reach, brought back the beseiged party, numbering only 13  men, and then steamed down the  river.  Act be put in force,.to keep out the  Japanese. 3;  Premier Laurier replied that the  government would introduce a bill  on Monday dealing with this matter.  He said, however, that he could not  understand the position taken by  colonel Prior on the matter. If the  Natal Act was adopted there was  no need of an increase in per capita  tax because the Natal Act would  keep put Chinese and Japs. If the  present relations ; of Britain and  Japan were not to.be disturbed, and  it was not desirable that they should  when Britain wasfen gaged in war,  he would ask, if it'Was wise to do  anything that might injure the harmony that prevailed and when the  friendly i^sistahce' of Japan was  looked for. He didjuot want to say  anything about tli(i bill until it was  introduced.-  .'^4  ���-  CANADIANS POORLY TREATED  o  Strathcona Fixes Matters Up.  London, June 8.-*-Harold G. Parsons,-federation delegate from West  Australia, writes to the morning  'papers to protest against the treatment giventho wounded Canadians.  He says :^ "The iiivalid "Canadians  at Shorheycliff camp; who have returned'from . the 'front, complain  that they are baldly fed, unhealthy  crowded, and refused a furlough.  This seems a curious return to make  for their conspicuous services, voluntarily rendered, jj.1 have it on un-  disputable ^authority, and that  it is" 'the practice of the  war office to administer  the British volunteers, and, for all  I - know, the regular army, by  means of regulations drafted and  issued in great part on no better  authority than that of the promoted second-class clerks, a body of  gentlemen, no doubt of irreproachable * characters, but men by no  means adapted by their intelligence  or education to bo^trnsted with so  great   a   responsibility.      Such .a  CANADA'S GROWING TRADE  Fielding's Surplus Grows.  Ottawa, June 8.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The   statement   of   the  revenue  and   expenditure  of   the  Dominion for the eleven months,  ending May 30th last,  shows the  revenue to   be $45,107,144, an increase of nearly $4,000,000 over the  same period last year.   There was  an increase for May alone of a quarter of a million dollars.    The expenditure was $32,575,000, or one  million   increase   Oyer  the  corresponding eleven months.     The difference   between   the expenditure  and revenue, on ordinary, account,  shows a surplus  of $12,531^568,  so  that Hon. W. S.  Fielding's prediction of having a surplus of $7,500,000  at the end of this month, when the  financial year closes,  will  be fully  realized.     There are  considerable  accounts yet to come in.   The capital expenditure was $7,288,000, a  decrease of $600,000 over last year.  Another Filipino Captured.

BRITISH IwiNISTETsCORED  LAURIER PROMISES REL  From Oriental Immigration.  Ottawa, June 8.���In the house  today, on motion to go into supply,  Belcourt of Ottawa, brought up,  once again, the Pacific cable scheme.  Postmaster-general Mulock pointed  but that the government had no  information from the imperial authorities of anything being done  that would prove fatal to the  scheme, and he thought if anything  had been done, the Canadian government would be advised of it.  Colonel Prior of Victoria brought  up the question of Chinese immigration, suggesting that the Chinese poll tax be increased to $500, j  Is He a Lightweight ?  London, June 8.���The Spectator,  commenting on the Chinese difficulty, says it .considers that if the  situation becomes acute, the only  alternative to a European concert,  which would be effective only in  thepry,jwouId_be_for_ Bnglond_and.  Russia to act together iti a definite  agreement. The paper adds: "Thoy  alone possess physical power, near  enough to the scene, to be of immediate use. England could, Mn  this case, use her Indian troops."  Continuing, the Spectator strongly  opposes any partition of China, and  thinks it unsafe to assume that the  Chinese soldiers cannot fight.  Tho morning papers linger over  the Chinese situation, publishing  long editorial reviews and conjectures. The Daily Express contends  that sir Claude Macdonald is charming personally, but, lacks initiative  and strength of character sufficient  for the difficult po^t of British minister at Pekin. Jn its news columns ifc tells how sir Claude  claimed a British diplomatic victory when the legation ladies,  escorted by lady MacDonald, visited  the empress dowager, who afterwards, ifc'is alleged, sent this telegram to all the provinces: "As  you are aware, these foreign devils  have been very troublesome to me  lately. Their actions have been  very offensive to me. Being a  woman, I could not make the ministers come and explain, but today I  sent and compelled their women to  come and kow tow." The Daily  Press, suggests thafc 20,000 Indian  troops be dispatched to China to  restore order.  and that something like the Natal  Bay of Quinte Conference.

Troops Now Resting.  London, June 9.���0:10 a. m.���."  General Buller has at length taken  the offensive, and by. manoeuver-  has secured a position west of  Laing's Nek, by which he believes  he can make the Boer position untenable. Presumably he will im-  -mediately follow up his success.  Lord Roberts has communicated  nothing for three days, nor permitted   the   correspondents   to   wire  what is going'on. London's inference is that he is resting, although  he is possibly disposing his army  for a race after commandant general Botha. A blockade of tho  'wires, owing to the rush of official  correspondence, may account for  the scanty press dispatches. Some  telegrams filed a week ago, are only  just now arriving. Among these  are descriptions of the fighting at  Elandsfontein. According to one  of them, the streets were filled with  women and children. Rifle shots  could be heard everywhere. The  British soldiers would stop firing  and join in the chase after chickens. The burghers surrendered to  anyone. Kaffirs^ went about looting fche Jewish stores, and mounted  infantry galloped hither and  thither.  The Daily Express has the'following from Pretoria, dated Wednesday: The one thousand prisoners  who were deported from Waterval  were told that they were aboufc" to  be given up to lord Roberts. They  cheered, and were conveyed to  Noitgedeche instead of Pretoiia.

Middleburg is said to be full of  Boor refugees and wounded men.  The railway still delivers goods at  Bronkhorst Spruit, 10 miles east of  Pretoria. A Britibh column is at  Brcmensdorp. Eleven      British  prisoners have been taken to Middleburg. The British at Biera are  moving into the* interior in detachments of 200.  to put down the disturbance alone.  The Tien Tsin correspondent of  the Daily Mail, telegraphing June  7th says; "For the last three days,  the whole community of Tien Tsin  has been preparing to defend itself  against an expected attack by tho  Boxers, and there is a continual influx of refugees from the surrounding country, who are now crowding  the city. This increases the excitement. Nearly all the villages  surrounding Tien Tsin are joining  the Boxers movement, which is  taking more and more a fanatical  character.  Gieu Nien seems bent upon acting with energy and dealing out  heavy blows to the rebels, recognizing the necessity of destroying  the prestige of the Boxers, which  has begun to demoralize this army.  Secret orders from Peking for the  protection of the rebels, has paralyzed military action, and raised  the status of the Boxers in the eyes  of the ignorant masses. Although  the Boxers declare their first object is the annihilation of Catholic  converts, the wire pullers evidently  wish to propagate hatred among  the country people against foreigners, and foreign things in general. ' .-;'-  London, June 0.���The Pekin" correspondent., of the TKmes, telegraphing June 8th, says: "The American  missionary conference today sent a  dispatch to president McKiniey,  appealing for protection^ and asserting that the missionaries at Pao  TingiFu and other places are in extreme danger; that theVTung Chan  mission station has been abandoned,  'that chapels have everywhere been  burned, and that hundreds of native Christians have been massacred."

London, June 9.���Definite returns  regarding the severe fighting between vhe Chinese troops and the  Boxers, that was going on Thursday between Tien Tsin and Pekin,  had nofc been received at Tien Tsin  when the latest telegrams to reach  London were filed. The Chinese  troops, however, h-id killed many  Boxers, accoiding fco some reports,  while another account had the government soldiers defeated in an engagement near Pao Ting Fu.

Taylor   &   Hannington  have received the full text of the  judgment of the full court in the  celebrated case of Grutchfield vs.  Harbottle.     This case has an especial    interest   for   mining   men.  The   facts are   that a free miner  named Beadles of Salmo staked the  May Day mineral claim near Ymir,  on May 1st, 1897, and on the Oth  day. of    the   same     month     he  gave     a    bill     of"   sale     to    J.  H. .Harbottle of. Nelson who   neglected to  register  the same until  April 1898.    In the interval, namely. July 1897, Beadles allowed his  free   miners'   certificate   to   lapse,  and Harbottle, riot having registered his bill of sale, the ground was  relocated by William Grutchfield in  October 1897 as the Equalizer.  Section 9 of the Mineral Act provides that if a free miner allows his  certificate to lapse his mineral claim  becomes forfeited to the crown, but  if he has a co-owner it is not forfeited, but the whole claim goes to  the co-owner, provided the co-owner  keeps his certificate alive, which in  this instance Harbottle did.  Section 49 of the Mineral Act also  lias a bearing upon the case in that -  it states that while a bill of sale unregistered   is   good   between   the  parties, yet it is not good as to third  parties.     Section  50   of' the   Act  further provides that a bill of sale  is not enforceable until it is registered.   S. S. Taylor, who conducted  the case for Harbottle at the trial,  contended that (1) Grutchfield was  not a third-party, because unless he  could lawfully locate the ground he -  could not get the standing of   a  third party in law; (2) thatGrtitch-'  field could uot lawfully locate the  ground because Harbottle was a co-  owner, and in fact 'the May. Day  never became waste land   of the  crown, aud under section 0 of the  act Grutchfield could not locate the  ground  or get any standing until  such happened.    \  At the trial of the action Mr. justice Martin held for the plaintiff '  Grutchfield ; holding that Grutchfield was a third party, and fchat  while Harbottle,5 was a co-owner  under section 9/yefc all his" rights of  co-ownership were postponed to  Grutchfiold's rights .because liar-.  bottle had nofc registered his bill of  sale in the meantime. The case wis  appealed to the full court at Victoria, and-the unanimous judgment  of the court reversed the judgment  of Mr. justice Martin, and as given  by chief justice McCall is in the  following words:  ''The facts are fully stated in the  judgment of Mr. justice Martin.  '���There i^, apparently a conflict  between sections 10 and 50 of tho  act. The former provides thafc an  assignment, though not reeoided  within a time limit, shall be valid  as between-the parties; -and fche  latter that it shall not be enforceable between them until after having been recorded.  "In my opinion the failure to record did nofc result in the claim becoming waste lands of the crown,  open to location.  "Au assignment is ordinarily enforceable against an unwilling party  only by some legal process, aud I  think that section .10 could and  ought to bu construed a�� meaning  merely that the court should not  afford relief before record of assignment ; thus giving effect to both  sections. , I think the reason for  this is to be found in the provision  for payment of a fee for each record.

Candidate  Hall has not the nerve to commend  the scheme to Nelson men; but at  Ymir it is different.  Before the campaigu closes The  Tjuijuxe desires to compliment  caudidate Fletcher upon the manner  in which he has conducted his personal end of the campaign. Since  the campaign opened it has never  been charged against him that he  took advantage of the absence of  his opponents to wilfully misrepresent them. With candidate  Hall it has been different. In the  absence of liis opponents he has  shown himself to be both unfair  and untruthful.  &  H. J.

They  y  made the trip in 2S days.''.  Mr. Kurtz; reports that about  twelve miles of beach claims were  being worked when he left. He  expected the yield during the coming summer to amount to millions  of dollars. About '100 miners worked .on tho beach, of wliich 15 per  cunt worked continuously, the others only as they pleased. On March  MS, the date the men lef t Nome,  there were between 1700 and 2000  miners at work on the beach.  ^Regarding the general conditions  in Nome itself, Mr. Smith reports  that since the latest advices received on the outside there have  been no" outbreaks, lawlessness or  crime, further than what would  naturally result with gambling aiid  its' various associate evils going on.  The city government is fully competent to handle the crowd of  rough?, who, with a lax system of  protection might have developed a  siege of terror and crime.  "People on the outside can hardly  realize the extent of or richness of  the valleys, beach, tundra and  mountains included in what is generally known as the Nome district.  3a the first place the aiea of the  country in which rich strikes have  been made extends ,70 miles back  from the beach tit Nome, aiul how  much further is only guess woik at  piesent.,and for 270 miles east and  Most.

"A rich strike on Ungalaltblik,  going SO,cents to tho pan, was reported in February. This is east of  the Norton Bay country. The two  ciccks which have been opened so  tis to give a fair idea of their real  ehaiacter are Bryant and McKiniey,  between Golofnin Bay" and Norton  Bay. It is said and believed to be  ji conservative enough estimate that  .tho.-o creeks will prove to be the  j ichest proper! ies in the whole district. Other rich strikes and locations have been made in the Anaconda district.      "Rich old Russian workings havo.  been found iu the Golden Gate dis-  tiict, A Russian started the excitement. His name was Joe  Scli'eschick. It was reported that  from all appearances at some former  period the discovery had been  ^ivoiked by Russian prospectors. At  1 Ovist the indications were that such  "^ wtis the case. Tho ground is said  to be very rich. 11 is thought that  theie aro mimbeisof these old Russian diggings in the country, which  Jtavo been deserted for some reason  or other, and that when they are  found they will prove to be very  lieli. Jt is, well known that Russian prospectors- were in the country  yoai"-i aud years ago, and that considerable gold was taken out, but  in the course of time they either  died off or left and made their way  back to their homes, and the loca-  1 ions of the diggings eventually disappeared.  "Rich-quartz has been found on  the Kusrikue. I have brought  some of the samples out with me,  and they assay $800 to the ton. The  Kusrikue is a tributary of the Ani-  imiiu river.

Just before 1 left lots  in the town were selling for $2000,  and in good demand at that. K very-  thing is booming, and the prospect  of a railway to Nome pleases  everybody. It is conceded that  Port Safety will soon be the salt  water entianee into the Cape Nome  country.

Of course, most of the stuff  this year will have to be  lightered  to shore from the vessels out in the  bay, but just as soon as the tracks  of the railroad are down and the  rolling stock in running order there  will be   no    more    of    it.      Then  wharves  will  be  erected  at   Port  Safety   and   goods    loaded   direct  from the steamer to the cars alongside.    The survey for this  railroad  has been completed, and as I understand that the material  has  already been  shipped from  Seattle,  Avork will undoubtedly commence  at once, as soon as the material can  be takenashore.  "Lumber when I leffc Nome was  selling at $500 a thousand, and  even at those figures there was a  great demand for the article. There  is no doubt but that prices will be  greatly reduced as soon as the  many cargoes now on the way up  arrive, but still the shippers will  undoubtedly realize handsome profits on their ventures.  "Rich quartz strikes have been  made all the-way from Norton Bay  to Cape Prince of Wales. On both  sides of the mountains, ledges carrying rich metal'have beeu found.  Until, the Ararious locations are  more fully opened up this summer  there is hardly any use of telling  much about them, but there is no  question but that the future of the  Nbine' district has an excellent  backing in its quartz deposits."

BLACKS    IN    THE    TRANSVAAL.  M. Villorais, a Frenchman, who  has lived- many years in South  Africa, writes about the attitude of  the Boers towards the blacks. He  says: "The constitution of the  Transvaal declares that there cannot exist or be admitted any  equality in church or state between  whites and those who have among  their anccstois, even the fourth  generation, one who was not white.  "Ou Augu,st 20th, 1898, the volksraad rejected a motion to release  native pastors and teachers fiom  wearing on thoir arm a metal badge  (which the native |dwellers in cities  must carry) to show that they are  in the service of the white man ; in  default of which the black is imprisoned for vagabondage.  "The black has no legal rights.  The magistrate is at liberty to admit or reject the complaint or testimony of a native as he sees best.  This explains why, in the month of,  June last, apropos of a discussion  upon a Ibav on the deprivation of  civil rights, the attorney-general  spoke thus of the murder of aljlack;  "Not every sentence for murder is  degrading. Supposing, for instance,  a Man is condemned to prison for  six months for haying beaten his  native servant to death, it is evident ou the face of it that that  would bo no reason for depriving  him of his rights as a citizen and  voter.5  ^'TheJ}]ack_can. jirither_rent__nor  own land. At his good pleasure  the Boer allows the native to live  in a corner of liis farm, in return for  which the native must render such  service tis his master demands.  '"A", in ot der to escape such servitude, the blacks rush to the  mines and missions, the 'plakker-  swefc' was adopted. This law limits to five the number of native  families allowed on the same estate  or holding.  * "Tho natives who do not work in  mines and who are not apprenticed  to Boors are confined on lands from  whicli they can at any time be expelled after three months' warning."  The Boer, we are told, who owns  uo farms pays but $2 a year tax;  the owners of a farm but 90 cents ;  whereas tho black who can be  nothing but a laborer is taxed $13.  Last year the natives of certain  districts were called upon to pay  $30 a head���tiie taxes of the current  year, as well as for preceding famine  years during which it had not been  posoiblcto squeeze anything out of  them,   M. Villerais continues t  "The state commissioners who receive salaries varying from $1500  to $2000 plus 5 per cent of the  taxes taken by them, do a flourishing business. Taeir modus operand is as follows: When a black  can not pay his tax he is sent to  work in the mines. Recently a  band of 100 Mich was conducted by  the police to Johannesburg. Now  the companies which are short of  help pay from ��1 to ��2 per head to  the recruiter who brings them  workmen. The commissioner acts  as recruiting sergeant, and pockets  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M. LAY, Manager.  the bonus. During the session of  September 25th, 1899, a member of  the volksraad declared that he was  acquainted with a commissioner  who made $50,000 a year in this way.  . "When a semi-independent tribe,  pushed to the wall, refuses to pay,  it is attacked, its villages burned,  and harvest and cattle carried off;  the men of the tribe being shared  among the 'braves' who made the  campaign, whom they must serve  for five years without payment. If  they ishow any signs of thinking of  flight, they are killed without meres'.  This was done in 1894 in the south  of Zoutpansberg, and in 1898 in the  north of that district.  "Such is the legislation and such  has been the practice of the Boers,  There is but one name for such a  regime���feudalism. The comparison is perfect. The owners of the  land are the lords; the blacks are  serfs attached to the soil, not allowed to hold land; taxable and exposed to forced labor at the whim  of their masters. The commissioners are the bailiffs who used to oppose and crush the people in the  name of the sovereign."  Better Ouftook for Missionaries.  New Yohk, June 8."��� The anxiety  which lias been felt in regard to  missionaries in China was partially  allayed today by the receipt of a  cable from Dr. J. W. Hendy, one of  the board's oldest missionaries in  China. The board cabled Tuesday for information, and. the  reply, which came today,  reads: "Still"danger." This is  taken to indicate that no serious  depredations have been made as  yet by the Boxers. The Presbyterian board has 58 American missionaries in tiie Shang. Tung province. The American board has  also received a cable stating that  all American missionaries are well,  but that the government is do-  moralized, and advising that help  be requested from the state department. -   ���  NELSON   RIDING  TO '!

JOHN HOUSTON  ORE   MOVING   AGAIN.  The Trail smelter this week closed  a long contract for tho ore from  the Enterprise mine on Slocan lake,  the largest shipper in the Slocan,  also with the Ymir mine in the Nelson district.  Heavy shipments from the Payne,  which commenced this week, are arriving daily at the smelter.  The Queen Bess, at Three Forks,  has about 1000 tons ready for shipment. This would have been shipped before but for the bad roads.  The road now being fixed, this will  be forwarded at once, and stetidy  shipment? continued.  Considerable ore was also received  this week from the Hewitt, Molly  Gibson, Ajax Fraction and American Boy in the Slocan, and from the  Sullivan .group in Hast Kootenay.  Other shippers were the Wakefield,  Bosun, B. C, Brandon & Golden  Crown, Winnipeg and Cariboo.  While it is not yet definitely settled, it is expected that work on  another lead furnace at the Trail  smelter will commence shortly to  handle the immense shipments now  arriving. _  Some Heavy Sentences.

Kaslo, Jtmo 8.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The eve of bhe election  finds   Robert    F,   Green   anjl   his  i'rionds coniirlenfc of victory.    The  Provincial Party candidate held Jbia  final   meeting   here   tonight,   and  both *,he and Keen got a good  reception.     Green's   supporters   declare that their  man  will  have a  bigger majority than when he beat  Ratallack by 100 votes.   They believe that Green will  poll as many  i votes as Kane and Keen  together.  This is a rather sanguine view to  take.    Of cour&e there is hardly a  shadow of doubt that Green will be  elected, but George Kane has made  quite a number of friends of late  and he has a better   chance   now  than on nomination day.   tie will  certainly save his deposit. That  much could not be said of him two  weeks ago. John Keen has neither  gone forward nor backward. Thei'e  are a certain number of votes  which will be polled for him in any  event and they are enough to put  him in second place. The betting  is iu favor of Green,  A Successful Bank.  Toronto, June 8.���The annual  report of the Canadian Bank of  Commerce, for the past year, gives  a remarkable record of earnings.

The big balance will be used to add  a quarter of a million to the rest  fund, and $100,000 to clear off the  dept upon the bank premises. The  rest will now be $1,250,000'!  Forest Fire in'Quebec.
