 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSOK:   WEDNESDAY MORNING   JUNE 6-1900.  PEICE FIVE CENTS  ���4  HOW THE PLOT WAS FOILED  Full''Court Proceedings.  The attempt at wholesale disfranchisement, which candidate  Fletcher's supporters attempted in  tlri Nelson riding has failed. This  news was conveyed to Nelson yesterday in a number of telegrams,  and later was confirmed by a telo-  0 gram from A. E. Beck, registrar of  tho supremo court at Vancouver,  aud addressed to Harry Wright, in  whicli he advised the collector of  votes that the full court had al-.  lowed the appeal from the prohibition order of justice Drake. The  news of their victory was received  with great rejoicing by the supporters of candidate Houston, the  conviction being general that such  !i fair expression of the voice of the  electorate will add 300 to their candidate's majority.  The victory whicli S. S. Taylor,  Q. C, acting'for the Houston committee, gained at Vancouver, can  hardly be over estimated. At the  opening of the full court on Monday leave was obtained to make a  motion to place the prohibition appeal at the head of the list of  .appeals,' as it wras poiuted  out that, if argued in its  turn, it could not be reached  until the day before or the  day of election.... This was moved  by Mr. Taylor on the ground that  it was a matter of necessity and of  public benefit. The motion, however, was stoutly opposed by E. P.  Davis, Q. C, and R. M. 3Iaedonald,  who appeared for the three object-  ovs, and it was made manifest from  , lhe position they took, that they  , intended to take advantage of  every objection that promised'to  delay the argument so that if  granted the appeal would be barren  of lesult. This feature was pointed  out, and the result Avas that the  case was set down for argument on  Thursday. Thus the first attempt  5si the policy ot delay was trusts ated.  Thursday, however, .was given  over to the celebration of lord Roberts' succcs'viu youth Africa, and  it was Friday before tho ca^e  came up. When Mr. Taylor  was opening his argument another  attempt at delay was made  by Mr. Davis, who asked for an adjournment in order that he could  secure a copy of the notes taken by  Mr. justice Drake. The argument  upon this point became rather  warm, the counsel for the appellant  contending that the request for delay was not made upon substantial  grounds. The court refused this  delay and similar applications  through the argument weie treated  in the same way.  The argument occupied two days,  and, although tho appeal has been  granted, it is not yet known upon  what grounds. The whole of the  aigument was of a technical nature.  Mr. Taylor contended that a procedure by way of a, writ of prohibition was^ one which affected the  prerogatives of the crown, aud was  only granted to restrain the proceedings of an inferior court where  there' had- been a glaring abuse  of jurisdiction or where there  was ' an absolute want of  jurisdiction. This, he contended, was the only possible  'point of argument. lie further  argued that the supreme court  crown rules governed the matter,  and made it imperative that applications for writs ofr prohibition  should bo made by summons- to a  judge, and notJby notice of motion,  as had been done iu the present in-,  stance. - The difference was one of  'considerable importance, and- the  court held that the objection was  properly taken.      - ���  It was then 'contended by Mr.  Davis that'Mr. Justice Drake was  right in amending the procedure,'  bufc .Mr. Taylor replied that the  procedure by notice of motion was-  a. nullity and not an.irregularity,  a ud for this reason the court had  no -power to amend. ,- Several  authorities on -this point wrere  quoted, including a very strong  opinion by the late lord chancellor  Hcrschell.  Mr. Taylor then directed attention to the fact that section 25 of  the Election Act provided that if  any person was dissatisfied with  the decision of the collector of votes  afc any court held by him, he had  the privilege of appealing to the  county court judge upon giving six  days' notice. He argued that where  such privilege was provided, the  extraordinary remedy of prohibition should nofc be granted. He  .slid it was interesting to note that  the counsel for the objectors and  the organization behind them, did  not appear anxious to seek any  such speedy remedy, although the  county court'sat in Nelson on May  25tb, when the matter could have  been disposed of. They apparently  desired some slower process or  remedy, and, but for tlje fortunate  circumstance of the adjournment of  appeals by the full court from the  21st of May to the 28th, the argument on the appeal from the order  of prohibition could not have been  disposed of before election day.  The question was then taken up  wliich was dealt with fully before  Mr. Justice Drake, whether or not  the parties objected to had to receive the 30 days' notice before  they could ask for a trial of the objections alleged against them, or  whether they could waive such notice. 3Ir. Taylor contended that  this notice was for the benefit of  the persons objected to, and that it  could he waived. He also contended that this point in no way  affected the jurisdiction of the  court of revision. It was simply a  matter of procedure in the collector's court, and if he violated the  statute he was merely.: doing something irregular, aud consequently  the process of prohibition could not  apply.  The collector of votes, upon receiving the telegram from the rer  gistrar of the court, promptly certified to. the supplementary'list,  and, acting upon instructions from  Victoria, has had the same printed  in accordance with.the statute.  IMPERIAL YEOMANRY TAKEN  Captured by' Superior Force.  London, June 5.���12 o'clock midnight.���The following is a dispatch  from lord Roberts announcing the  surrender of the 13th battalion of  Imperial Yeomanry.:  "Pretoria, June 5.���12:55 p.m.���I  regret to report that the 13th Imperial Yeomanry had to surrender  to a very superior force of Boers on  May 31st near Lindley. On receiving confirmation of the battalion being attacked, I ordered  Methuen to proceed with all possible  speed to its assistance. Methuen  was then on the march from Heilbron to Kroonstadt, and, half an  hour after the receipt of my telegram .on June 1st, he started off.  By 10 a.m. of the following day, he  had marched 44 miles but lie was  too late to rescue colonel Spragge's  Yeomanry.  "Methuen attacked the Boers,  who were about 3000 strong, and,  after a running fight of five hours,  completely routed the enemy. It  was a very regrettable circumstance, but I hope it will not be  very long before the Yeomanry  will be released from captivity."  QUEEN DRANK TO ROBERTS  that witnesses should 'state how  they voted, that evidence taken by  the Privileges and Elections committee should be used, that Brockville and West Huron should be  taken Up first, and that the judges  consult with the leader of the opposition of the houso as to counsel.  In answer to this Laurier said he  would refer all these questions to  the minister of justice and would  be guided by what he said. He,  however, would not think himself  of conferring with judges as to  counsel and did not think it should  be done. That should be left to  the commission. He was of the  same opinion as to giving instructions as to/what case'to go on with  first. He wanted -the -commission  to have full power to'do its work in  the way it thought best.  ANOTHER OUTBURST OF JOY  VICTORY IS NOW ASSURED  Enthusiastic Kally.  Members of the Provincial Party:  in Nelson were celebrating the victory at the full court at ���.���Vancouver  last night. Both of candidate  Houston's committee rooms were  jammed to the doors with enthusiastic supporters, the walls were  decorated with mottoes and cartoons and everywhere was unbounded satisfaction thafc ������ the  machinations of the Conservative  machine had been set at nought.  The meeting1 was presided, over  by W. A. Galliher, and speeches  were tiie order of the day. Besides  the chairman, S. S. Taylor, James  Wilks, John Houston, Dr. Forin  ^and W. A. McLean spoke, and  rounds of applause greeted every  point made.  The enthusiasm was infections  and there was a feeling of victory  in the air. Hundreds of voters  visited the committee rooms during  the evening, and one and all were  outspoken in their confidence that  candidate Houston's straightforward light on behalf of the rights  and privileges of the electors had  carried the day. Always confident  of the result, yesterday's news  made the assurance doubly sure  that much hard and legitimate work  would not be thrown away.  It was otherwise in the rival com-  mittee"ropms7 "Candidate Hall's  quarters, , were . almost deserted,  while in candidate Fletcher's retreat  knot* of discomfited schemers were  to be seen, gloomily trying to face  the situation and realizing too late  that the attempted dirty work has  lost them both the Provincial and  Dominion elections in this riding.        ���, ��� - ,      ,               .. -*1  Kootenay Creameries.

Ottawa, .June 5:���[Special to The  Tribune.]���It is understood1 that  premier Emerson of NeAV Brunswick will be appointed to the supreme court bench of Now Brunswick in place of justice Vanwert,  and that A. S. White1, attorney-  general of the province,-will be the  next premier of New Brunswick.  Guest of Lord Pauncefote.  Washington, June 4,���The princess Aribert, who is visiting the  British embassy, spent today in  sight seeing. The ambassador and  Miss Pauncefote showed their guest  through the congressional library  and the capitol buildings. Tonight  lord and lady Pauncefote gave a  dinner in honor of their guest.  Notes-of the War.  London, June 6���4:35 a. m.���.  Queen Victoria, surrounded; by the  duke of York, the duchess, of York,  princess Christian, princess Victoria and many notables of her  court, drank to the health of lord  Roberts and the army at Balmoral  last evening. A great bonfire,  lighted at hep majesty's command,  blazed ori Craig Gowan mountain,  illuminating tho whole country for  miles round. The nation joins in  the toast, glorifying lord Roberts  and   turbulently   rejoicing in   his  victory.  ^  The dispatches of lord Roberts,  telling of the incidents before the  surrendering of the capital by  three civilians stand alone, as the  correspondents with him have not  yet had their turn with the wires.  Lord Roberts' postscript announcing -the loss of the Yeomanry  battalion came too la te for the public to know it last evening. The  newspaper commentators consider  the incident deplorable, but as  having no weight to speak of in the  results. The battalion numbered  between 400 and 500. General  Botha and most of his men got  away from Pretoria. This is inferred from lord Roberts' messages, but the presumption is that  the Boer commandant general cannot escape the British positions  without a fight. Operations elsewhere seem to have dwindled to  nothing.  General Baden-Powell joined gen-  eral Hunter on Sunday at Lichten-  burg. Sir Redvers Buller has not  moved.   .  Mr. Bennett Burleigh, "wiring  Johannesburg, says: "President  Kruger took ��27,000,000 to -Middle-  burg," ,Mr. Burleigh and Mr. Scull,  an American, entered Johannesburg  the night before general Roberts  occupied the city and made a tour  of it" unmolested by the armed  burghers.  Boer Generals Would Besiat. ' ,  London, June 5.���-The latest dispatches - from - a representative of  the Associated Press, at Pretoria,  .dated June 3, quote general Botha  assaying: ,"So long as I can still  count on our thousands of willing  men, we must'not dream of retreat  or throwing .away, our independence." General Botha, it is added, an-;  nulled the regulations appointing a  special committee t6 preserve order,  substituting military control for  the committee. General Lucas  Meyer, addressing the burghers on  the church square, urged them all-  to stand fast. Thus, though their-  efforts were pitifully futile, it, is  evident that a few faithful Boer  generals were working desperately  to resist the overwhelming force of  lord Roberts' army.  What Tupper Wanted.  Ottawa, June 5���-[Special to The  Tribune].���There were two or three  changes which the leader of the  opposition suggested in the instructions to the royal commission appointed to investigate election  frauds. He wanted, for instance,  that judges should give the witnesses immunity from prosecution,  ROBERTS ENTERS PRETORIA  Official Announcement.  London, June 5-^-12:17 _i. m.���-  The war office has <:6.sued the following dispatch frohi lord Roberts:  "Pretoria, June'5���11:40 a. m.���  We are now in possession of Pretoria. .

London; June - 5^���It was announced verbally at the war office  this afternoon that lord ^Roberts  entered Pretoria at 2 o'clock, South  African time. .;���';���>'. /;.;./';  -.-London, June 5.-11:10, _x m.���  The war office has'received the"fol-'  lowiug from lord Roberts;  "Pretoria, June 5.--^12:55 p. m.  ���Just before dark -yesterday the  enemy were beaten back from nearly all the positions they had been  holding, and Ian Hamilton's mounted infantry followed them to within 2000 yards of -Pretoria, through  which they retreated hastily. De-  lisle then sent an officer with a flag  of truce into the town, demanding  its surrender in my-name.  "Shortly before midnight I was  awakened by two officials of the  South African Republic, Sanberg,  military secretary to commandant  general Botha, and a genoral officer  of the Boer army, wJUp .brought one  a letter from Botha proposing an  armistice for the purpose of settling  the terms of the surrender. 1 replied that I would gladly meet the  commandant - general the next  morning, but that I was not pie-  pared to discuss any terms, as the  surrender of the town must be unconditional. I asked a reply by  daybreak, as I had ordered the  troops to maich on the town as  soon as it was light. In his reply  Botha told me that he had decided  not to defend Pretoria, and he  trusted that the women, children  and property would be protected.  "At 1 a. in. today, while on tho  line of march, I was met by three  of the principal officials with a flag  of truce, stating their wish to surrender the town. It was arranged  that Pretoria should be taken possession of by her majesty's troops  at 2 o'clock this afternoon. Mrs.  Botha and Airs Kruger are both in  Pretoria. ���   "Some few of the British prisoners have been taken away, but the  majority are still in Waterval.  Over a hundred of the officers are  in Pretoria. The'few I have" seen  are, looking well."  Heavy Canadian Losses.  Ottawa, June 5���[Special to The  Tribune]���Lieutenant-colonel Otter  cables from Johannesburg on June  4th, reporting . the following  won tided -on May 2!)th: Private  Davis, Royal Canadian' Dragoons,*  private Bobinson, 21st Essex regiment; private Bordan, 2nd Queen's  Own Rilles; private Hill.

London, June 5:���The casualties  of the British in the fighting under  general Warren at Fabersput May  29th, when, with 700 men, he was  surrounded and attacked by 1000,  colonal rebels, who were repulsed,  included one man killed and ten  wounded among the Canadian artillery.         Rev. D. J. Morrison Dead*.  Syracuse, N. Y., June 5.���Rev.  Daniel I. Morrison, pastor of the  Westminster Presbyterian church  of this city, died tonight. lie was  ii native of Nova Scotia and graduate of Auburn theological seminary.  Scenes in London.  London, June 5.���At 2 o'clock this  afternoon,almost eight monthsaf ter  the declaration of war, lord Roberts  entered Pretoria.    The commander-  in-chief   fulfilled   the   promise   he  made to the Guards at Bloemfontein, to lead them into the capital  of   the   Transvaal,   and   England  is celebrating the event with enthusiasm.   Throughout the length  and breadth of  the  country, the  news spread like wildfire.     Based  on   the   recollection   of   European  wars, when the occupation of the  enemy's capital signified the end of  hostilities, lord Roberts' terse message is universally, taken to mean  the   practical   fioish of   the   Avar  which has tried Great Britain's resources as they were '.never before.  In- London,  the Mansion House  and war office almost instantly became   the    centres    for    jubilant  throngs.   Flags again appeared as  if by magic, and the traffic had to  be diverted through other streets.  Hatless and coatless  men, and boys  ran through the city,  all eyes  to  see for themselves the bulletins announcing the good news, and stayed  to join in the thnuder of cheers and  singing   "God   Save   the   Queen."  Hats from thousands of heads were  waved in the sun, while old men on  top of the omnibusses and aldermen  from the windows of  the Mansion  House encouraged   the crowds to  still further efforts:  Lord Roberts' Six-mile Spruit  dispatch was hardly printed by  the extras before the Union Jack  over the war office was rapidly  hauled up the flagstaff, and the  brief message was passed from  mouth to mouth: "Pretoria is occupied."  Every one who had a chance to  see lord Roberts' account of the resistance encountered yesterday was  that moment commenting on the  probability of a fierce fight before  the eity should be occupied, and  was wondering at the Boers' capabilities to make such a firm stand  when Pretoria was hemmed in on  all sides. The pressure of general  Fieuch north of the Boer capital  came as a surprise, and explained  the commander-in-chief's reticence  anent the position of tiie energetic  cavalry leader. It was evident that  loid Roberts himself delayed attacking until his columns were  ready to co-operate.  Judging from lord Roberts'  phraseology, the occupation of Pretoria was not accompanied by loss  of life. Presumably the Boer forces  which so insistently opposed the  British advance at Six-Mile Spruit  got away.  London, June (i.���England has  been eeiebiating tonight Lhe fall of  Pretoria very much as she did the  relief of Mafeking. Drunkenness  has been a trifle les-s conspicuous  than wheu Baden-Powell was the  hero of-the-momentj-but-iu London  and in the other large towns the  scenes last evening were practically a repetition of those which  marked the other victories, and,  long after midnight, uproarious yelling, tooting of horns, and discordant chants ascended from the city  streets, usually, as silent as the  grave.  >> All during thocvening processions  marched along the Strand, Piccadilly, aiifl the other" leading, thoroughfares.' In fact, ho great was  the crush, that the easiest method  of locomotion was to join one' of  tho processions, for whose strident  choruses and waving- flags. aU  traffic- was stopped. Cabs and  coaches were .freely chartered in  honor of -the joyful occasion, and  these were soon'so packed with invited'and uninvited guests, that  they assumed the qspeet .of living  pyramids (if Bacchanalians.' Babies  in arms, white headed women,  girls of the street, club men in evening dress and Whitecbapei coster-  mongers gaily intermingled along'  tiie flaring thoroughfares, bent on  celebrating the victory.  Into the faces of al! were constantly thrust huge peacock feathers, described, for no known reason,  a�� "Kruger's preservers." Girls  wore indiscriminately kissed, jostled and tossed around amidst the  ecstatic jubilation of the midnight  crowd. A species of confetti which  stuck to the clothing of the procession proved a popular form of showing one's joy until the stores of tho  peddlers ran out.  Effigies of Kruger wero burned,  and innumerable telegrams of congratulations w<"re sent to fche little  field marshall who had made England so happy.  Lord Wolseley received the news  while visiting Henry James at Rye.  Ho improved the occasion by  attending the local municipal meeting and joining in the cablegram to  lord Roberts.  The Rev. Dr. Talmage, who was  shut up in the Mansion House by  the density of the crowd after a  luncheon with the lord mayor, said  to a representative of the Associated Press:  "It is tho most inspiring, most  wonderful exhibition of enthusiasm  I have ever seen. In some respects  it reminds me of the peace jubilee  in Boston at the close of the American civil war."  FIGHT AT SIX-MILE SPRUIT   g  UNION JACK WAS HOISTED  Scenes in Johannesburg.  Johannesburg, June ^5.���On Friday, June 1st, the entry of an armed  force yesterday into this large, mod- I  ern, populous town, afforded such a  strange contrast to the previous incidents of the war as to make the  occasion     peculiarly    memorable.  Soon after 10 o'clock lord Roberts  and his staff   left   the   camp   followed by the guards and Stevenson's  brigade   and  a few   newspaper     correspondents.     Preparations had   been made  on   a large  scale to welcome the field marshall.  The space round the Court house  was   thronged and   the   balconies  were filled with ladies.    In front of  the court   house   the "Vierkleur"  Free   State flag still floated.    At  about 2 o'clock cheers in the distance   heralded   the   approach   of  lord Roberts.     The din increased  aiid became deafening as - the commander-in-chief, calm and collected,  led the column into the square and  reached   the   front   of   the   court  house.   The crowd became almost  unmanageable,   trying    to    break  through the cordon formed by the  ibody guard in order to get a closer  view.  , Cheers and cries of welcome and  "Well done Bobs" resounded on all  sides. After his introductions to  the chief officials, lord Roberts dismounted and entered the court  house, and made a short speech accepting the surrender of the place  and requesting the officials to retain tlieir offices for the present.  General Roberts afterwards left the  building, remounted, and the  ���."Vierkleur" was hauled down midst  hurrahs from tho nondescript population.  But there was visible emotion on  the part of many rugged burghers.  Tears streamed down the faces of  these big bearded men at the sight  of the loss  of the flag they had  fought for so well. After a brief  'interval the rattle of drums and  the shrieking of fifes heralded the  approach of general Pole-Carew's  guards. The tioops were drawn up  around the flag staff and the Union  Jack was hois,ted by lady Robcits,  the- fifes���played-"God-Save the  Queen," and, as .the music ceased,  a great roar of cheers broke ont  followed by a chorus of "God Save  the Queen." -   '  , During the singing of the national  anthem a tall Free State artillerist,  who wa.s listening to the ceremony,  refused to lift his hat. Bystanders  trit��d to force him to do so, wheu a  British Guardsman peremptorily interposed saying, "Leave him alone.  lie fought for his flag. You are too  cowardly to fight for any flag." , >  ��� A march past subsequent to the  march through the town closed the  ceremony. Lord Roberts' head-,  quarter's were at a small inn in an  orange grove. ' .       ���  There was a characteristic, scene  there at the close of his" victorious  day. die of his, staff officers approached in'order to discuss a matter of, importance, aiid found the  field marshal with the innkeeper's  little daughter on his knee, trying  to teach her to write. When they  were interrupted,, .lord Roberts  looked up smilingly and said, "Don't  come now; can't you see I'm busy?"

General Shafter and his staff met  general Otis, and he was accorded  full military honors.  Boer Delegates at Cleveland.  Buffalo, June 5.- The three  Boer delegates left Buffalo for  Cleveland tonight. They cut  short their stay at Niagara Falls in  order, they say, to save time.  Boers Driven Back. ��  London, June 5.���11 a.m.���It is  officially announced that lord Roberts occupied Six-mile Spruit on  June 4th.  London, June 5.���The war office  has issued the following dispatch  from lord Roberts :  "Six-Mile Spruit, June "4.-8:30.  p. m.���We started this morning at  daybreak and marched about ten  miles to Six-mile Spruit, both banks  of which were occupied by the  enemy. , Penry's and Ross' ,  mounted infantry, with the West  Somerset, Dorset, Bedford and Sussex companies of yeomanry quickly  dislodged them from the south  bank and pursued them nearly a  mile, when they found themselves  under a heavy fire from guns which  the Boers hod placed in a well-constructed, commanding position.  "Our heavy guns of the naval  and royal artillery, which had purposely been placed in the front part  of the column,'were"hurried to the  assistance of the mounted infantry  as soon as possible as mules could  travel over the great rolling hills  surrounding Pretoria. The guns  were supported by Stevenson's  brigade of Pole-Carew's division  and, after a few rounds, drove the  enemy from the position.  "The Boers then attempted to  turn our left flank, in which they  were foiled by the mounted infantry and yeomanry, supported by  Maxwell's brigade of Tucker's division. As, however, they still kept  pressing our lef t rear, I sent word  to Ian Hamilton, who was advancing three miles to our left, to incline toward us and fill up the gap  between the two columns. This  finally checked the enemy, who  were driven back toward Pretoria.  "I hoped we would have been  able to follow them up, but the  days now are very short in this  part of the world, and after nearly  two hours' marching and fighting  we had to bivouac on the ground  gained during theday.  "The Guards brigade is quite  near the southernmost fort' by  whicli Pretoria is defended, and less  than four miles from the, town.  French, with the third and fourth  cavalry brigades and Hutton's New  South Wales Mounted Rifles, is  north of Pretoria. Broadwood's  brigade is between French's and  Hamilton's columns, and Gordon's  is watching the right fiauk of the  main force, not far from the railway bndge at Irene station, which  was destroyed by the enemy,  "Our casualties, I hope,  aie very  few."  A Boy Hero.  Media, Pennyslvania, June 5.���  Two children were dragged from a  "burning house on the farm of T.  Steer Biekslee last night by their  eight-year-old brother, who, driven  out by the flames, wag compelled to  leave his mother and jx _baby to  perish. Mr. Bickslee's farm is about,  a mile from Media. From the little  hero, who saved two lives and made  a gallant effort to snatch two more  from the flames, was learned the  story of the tragedy." His mother,  carrying her baby and a lamp, fell  on a stairway, the lamp setting  fire to the house. ��� The carpets, sat-  .urated* with oil from the lamp,  humeri fiercely, and the boy, realizing thab the house was doomed,  dragged out a brother and a sitter,  who were intent on rushing through  the fire"to tlieir mother.

But her  weight was too great for' his little  arms, and as the flames were closing in on him ho gave ���a last despairing look at the doomed woman  "and fled, heartbroken, to a place of  safety.

On Saturday evening they will recognize  the difference between having candidates in a contest and supporters  in the legislature.  Candidate Houston's election is  now assured. His only formidable  opponent in the race was candidate  Fletcher, who upon the admissions  of his own supporters had no chance  unless 500 of the electors were disfranchised. The full court has decided, however, that the names of  these voters shall be placed upon  the list, and by this action the  Fletcher party is hopelessly beaten.

Now  that the conspiracy has failed there  will no doubt be an attempt made  hy the officers of the local  Conservative Association to shift* the responsibility.    Jt is worth remem  bering, however, that so long as the  scheme promised to be successful  none of the officers of the association took any pains to denounce  the perpetrators of it.    They seemingly wci e prepared to countenance  anything likely to assist in securing  tiie election of candidate Fletcher.  They strove   to   avert   defeat by  sharp practices, but they have'only  I succeeded   in   adding   discredit to  ! defeat.  The men who aro on the stump  for the Wilson-Turner Conservatives and the Martinites lay great  stress upon the fact that they have  more candidateH in tho field than  The present trouble in Ashanti���  sometimes spelled Ashantee or Si-  auti, West Africa, is a sequel to the  wai's of 1S74 and 1S05, in which  kings Koifee and Prempeh respectively were whipped into submission  by the British, whom it is said they  attacked at the instigation of  French traders.  Prempeh, the successor of Koifee,  was ordered to pay a heavy indemnity in gold, and an attempt was  made to secure the golden stool or  throne-chair of the kings of Ashanti, in default of part payment of  the required indemnity. Prempeh  succeeded in hiding this valuable seat, and British agents  are said to have kept up, a  still hunt for it until the  first week of the present month,  when they learned of its whereabouts and made an attempt to get  possession of it, precipitating a rising for which the governor, sir  Frederick Mitchell Hodgson, was  poorly prepared. While the natives are besieging Kumassi, the  capital, British troops are being  hurried forward to disperse the  savage warriors to whom the golden stool is a sacred emblem.  Until recent years the horrible  practice of human sacrifice was so  well established in Ashanti that a  ruler could have his subjects butchered simply becaush lie took a  fancy to do so. The English have  made strenuous efforts to bring the  natives into some sort of civilization, but as there are some 3,000*-  000 of them the task has not been  an easy one.      j ,  The king of Ashanti Is said to  have 8,333 wives, and he is so effeminate himself that'll stranger I.s  never certain of hip sex until formally introduced. Yet this king  caused the most atrocious crimes to  be committed just because his fancy  dictated. At one time a town pos-.  sessed three different places of execution. The one for private execution was at the palace; the second,  for public decapitation, was- on the  parade ground; aiid the third, for  fetich sacrifices, was in the 'sacred  village of Bantama.  One of the horrible instruments  of butchery was the execution bowl,  a large basin of brass some five feet  in diameter, ornamented with four  small lions and a number of round  knobs all around its rim, except at  one part, where there is a space for  the victim'b neck to rest on the  edge. The blood of the victim was  allowed to putrefy in the bowl, and  leaves and certain herbs being added, ibwus considered a~very valua=~  bio fetich medicine.  Any great function was seized  upon as an excuse for human sacrifices. The king went every quarter  to pay his devotions to the shades  of his ancestors at Bantama. and  this demanded the death of 20 men  over the great bowl. Ou the death  of any great personago two of the  household slaves were at once killed  on the threshold of the door in  order to attend their master immediately in his new life, and his  grave was afterward lined with the  bodies of more slave?, who were to  form his retinue in the spirit world.  It was thought all the -better if,  during the burial, one of the attendant mourners could be stunned  by a club, and dropped, still breathing, into the grave before it'was*  filled in. Iu tbe case of a great  lady dying slave girls were the  victims.  Death penalties were dealt out  upon the slightest provocation. If  a man found a nugget of gold or  anything else of value and did not  carry ifc at once, to the king he was  liable to decapitation. The hist for  blood seemed to grow upon the  people, and at public executions  torturea were resorted to in order  to satisfy the spectators.  Thez-e were but two ways to  escape execution when once a man  wa.s selected. One was to repeat  the "king's oath," a certain formula  of words, before they could gag  him ; the other was to break loose  from his captors and run as far as  the Bantama-Kuraassi crossroads.  Jf he could reach this point before  being overtaken he was allowed to  it/  \i)  ii/  Yourself and Friends are Invited by  The Home Art Society of  Decorative Needle  Work  of New York, to view an Exhibition of Silk Art Needle Work and  to arrange for a series of lessons, from May 28th to June 13th.

In order to guard-against  their prisoners getting off by either  of these methods the executioners  used to spring on the intended victim from behind, and while one  bound his hands behind his back  another drove a knife through both;  his cheeks, which1 effectually prevented him from opening his mouth  to speak, and in this horrible- condition he had to await his tunr for  execution. When the time came  the executioners, mad > with blood,;  would make a rush "for him" and'  force him upon the bowl. Then  one of them, using a large kind of  a butcher's knife, would cut into  the spine and so carve the head off.'  Canadian News Briefs.

NELSON  RIDING  To i in: Electors ov thi: Nei so.v Kidi.no :  Gentlemen���Ab the unanimous choice of a duly  constituted convention of the suppoiters of the  ProMiicial Party in the Nelson nding, 1 am before > on as a candidate for representative of tho  Nelson riding in the next provincial legislature.  In this connection I desnc to solicit jour votes  and influence m my behalf. Beliewng that  everj man aspiring for mcmbciship should place  himself on lecordon the mam issues I takotlus  opportunity of stating that I am in favor of legislation upou the following lines:  1. Representation m the legislative assembly  should be based on population, \\ ith such moditi-  cationsas \wllgi\e sparsclj settled districts pi o-  portionately linger representation than cities and  thickly settled fanning districts.  2. All legislation should bo goneral, and not  special. A beginning bus been made in this  dueotion bj the enactment of laws under v hich  cities can be incorpoi.itcd, companies tamed,  and '\alur records obtained The��e should be  added to by the passage of a gencial railway incorporation uct, and one giving municipalities  the s,imc powers to acquire water recoids as uie  i.ow accoidod private corporations.  3. Publiclnndsshould be kept for actual settlement, and land subsidies should not be granted  to aid the building of radwajs, that whon built  aie owned by corporations.  1. Go\ernaiont ownership of inllwiiys is no  moie a theory than municipal owneislnp of  public utilities. Both havc been tried and found  to work for tl.o public good when oupably and  honestly managed ; but in making a commencement in government ownership of railways in  this prov mop. a section should be selected in  which the government would have atreehand,  and not in sections where competition w ould _o  met.  9. Prevention of the landing m this province'  of Chinese and Japanese l8.btn<ei*��, and tho dis-  coui.igement of the gmploj montof those already  hcie bj evcrj fair means possible.  0. Posiittvo, not negative, laws should only be  passed., If Ihe pnhfiplc of a law is" good, the  law should be effective' The eight-hom day for  men w oi king undei ground m metalliferous mines  is now generally accepted as legislation in the  right diiection. I would oppoho any legislation  that would repeal tho penalty clause, or in any  other way impair the eitcctiv eness of the law as  it npw sWnds.  7. To give immediate efteot,hj legislation, to  a resolution similar to that kno.vn as the Muloch.  icsolution, iecfintl> passed by the Dominion  House of Commons, \s Inch provides for the paj.  ment of fair wages on public woiks or woiks  aided by government subsidies. All contiactors  doing work for either the province or for munici-  Ikilitics should bo require* to pay labor the rate  of wafjes ruling ut the municipality or neighborhood in winch the work is to be done, tho nuin-  bei of houis to constitute a a\\\,\ on jiU suoh work  to be fixed bj statute.  - 8.-C0111U, havo been established in which m-  div jduala and corporations aro compelled to  settle disputes, however trivial, disputes that  seldom have any bearing 011 the goneial piosper  lty of the community 111 whicli tho disputants reside; and courts should bo established for thu  compit>hory sottlon'ont of disputes between the  lopioseniatives of capital and labor, disputes  that too of I en 111 e far reaching in their damaging  effects on the jsrencral prosperity of whole communities and districts.  B. Mining for the precious motals i. the one in-  duslrj which is benefiting, diroctlj or iudiiootlj',  everj community In tho piov inco, and legislation  alloctmg tho lnuustij', in the way of taxation,  should bo bused ou the treatment and manufacture within the piovince of the product of the  iinneh, ut'hci' than oa the output of the mines at,  at picboiit.  10. The cstablishniontof a buicati, with head-  t)iiaiters in Itrnlsh Columbia nnd not In Orc^t  Hiitain, to Ryhtenuitlcally advoittro all the  nut tual icsourucs and scenic. ivtt|,wtiotM of tho  prov luce.  , ll. Orgniji^pcl miinieipalitlos should bo given  tho fiontrol of their public j-ohools, leaving to the  province tho.iaio of public Hohools in unorgan-  i'/ed distrlots and tlio itialntenance of normal and  technical schools.  12. Trunk loads and halls should bo built and  maintained at public expense, and tho cost of  roads and trails to isolated mines and communities ���should bo borne in part by the piovince,  13, Oencral liospitalw Mioulti be under government control, and the government should help  maintain physicians in tparsely SQttlpd itcotlons  of tho prov itiLC.  IJ. The gov eminent in junvcr should inako  official nnnounpenient. fpr a rpasonab'e time before the legislative assembly meets, of all pio-  uosod legihliition. Were fhis done there would  be fewer hastily passed laws, laws wliich aro too  often against the public inteiest.  All of which is respectfully submitted for yam  consideration.
