NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING OCTOBER 1  1900  PRICE FIVE "CENTS &M  ELECTIONS ONJNJBEAT BBITAIN  The Gity of Birmingham Remains Loyal to Chamberlain  and Returns Six Unionists by Acclamation.  New   York, September  30.���In  regard to the political campaign, I.  N. Ford, London correspondent of  the Tribune, cables  his paper this  morning as follows: "Elections held  in uncontested boroughs give the  Unionists a strong lead, but do not  offer a clear indication of the trend  of public opinion.   Mr.   Chamberlain, Mr. Ritchie, Mr. Windham and  .   sir Henry Fowler arc among, the  candidates returned without opposition. " Six Birmingham seats were  '    carried  by the Unionists without  resistance,   the   polling   being   reserved in the seventh for Thursday.  Mr, Chamberlain is master of the  situation on his own ground, having curried Birmingham with  him  out of the Liberal party, and kept  it behind him.  .The Unionists have gained the  seat in York whiohtsir Frank Lock-  wood earriedin 1895, and which-was  won by a narrow majority by lord  Charles-Beresford iu a bye-election.  The Unionists have been boasting  that they would capture all but two  of. the London seats, John Burns  has been making a vigorous canvass  in Battersea, and not repudiating  his record as a consistent opponent  of the war, but the other Liberal  candidates have been less energetic.  On Saturday night, a mass meeting at St. James Hall was planned  for the purpose of imparting courage to the Liberals in the metropolitan districts, .and sir Henry  Campbell-Bannerinan was 'summoned from Scotland as the chief  speaker. The hall was crowded  witlTa good-humored holiday audi-  enceV-*eager * to. applaud any hard  Afec, _'or > laugh at any pleasantry.  ^JThe Liberal. leader, j.averf a^_ most  effective exhibiti6ri>'ol' the1 Tactics"  of the opposition." He began  by, explaining the " causes of  Unionist depression.   The ministers  - were conscious of having ordered a  discreditable manoeuvre in dissolving parliament on a depleted register, and run tremendous risks in  demanding a special demonstration  of confidence when.they had failed  to deserve it, especially in South  Africa where only the skill of the  generals and the-bravery of the  soldiers had pulled them through.  He next made an incisive reply to  Mr. Chamberlain's defense of the  publication of private letters  of members - of parliament. He  disclaimed sympathy with the  views of Mr. Labouchere and  Dr.   Clarke,   and   described   Ellys  .^letter as harmless but, apart from  "-v-the contents of the captured cor'res-  ; pondence, he denounced the publi-  cation of private letters by a gov-  ernment department for partisan  ends as a discreditable act, for  which there were no precedent for  two hundred years. He described  Mr. Chamberlain's act as a breach  of honor, and a breach of law, and  remarked that any one in private  life who ventured to publish private letters would bo flouted  out of society. These hard  blows delighted the audience  which clearly wanted to direct  the attack, upon Mr. Chamberlain.  - The Liberal leader then took up  lord Rosebery's -programme of domestic reforms, and advocated the  housing of the working classes  through special legislation, increased transit facilities at the expense of the land owners, practical  temperance reform and an .enlargement of the scope of the national  system of education.. The Liberal-  speakers are following a judicious  line of their own, saying little  about   South   Africa,   and7 taking  "their cue fron^ lord Rosebery and  laying   stress -upon/ domestic ['re-;:  .'/,''forms/''./���'.���..,_ .V '������'���'���s -,:���:   ���::": v'.'.'  The excitement is rising in the  /working districts, for lord George  Hamilton'has been nearly mobbed  in attempting to address" ,a: hostile  , audience. Mr. Burns opponent in  Battersea   has    abandoned public  ^peieehes,/Oldham is in >a ferment,  ana "Labouchere is attended by a  swarm of noisy admirers who will  riot allow anyone to say. aught  against him.  ~; The vetern philospher, Herbert"  ; Spencer, who has contributed  to  the canvass a curious parallel- be-  ,.   tween the outLonders and the Eng-  -7 inl>; people hetovetlie passage of  the reform bill, lives almost in solitude at Brighton, and spends his  days in looking dreamily seaward.  His body has shrunk und withered  until he resembles a mummy, but  his senses are keen. He reads without glasses and hears the, faintest  whisper. His mind is also as clear  as it ever was, although he suffers  from insomnia and bodily ailments.  He complains that a recent visit  from a friend put him back-for two  months, and that people worry  when he sees them. So completely  has he passed out of the current of  life that his letter has been like a  voice from the tomb, but he retains  to a remarkable degree, in old age,  his interest in politics, social questions and philosophy.  The   effects vof    the    prolonged  strain of excitement over the war  in South Africa are" revealed iu the  conduct  of the  general elections.  They are evidences of nervous irritability and flightiness of mind on  all sides.   The leader of the opposition has come dangerously near  giving   Mr.   Chamberlain 'the   lie  direct/arid the ministers themselves  seem stale and not in goodforra for  an   appeal to  the electors.     The  Union press is fidgeting over ways  and means of rallying the Imperialists when in   reality' there is no  cause for alarm on that score.   The  imperialists are rallying, but not in  a single political camp. - They have  raised their standard at the Liberal  as  well as at the Unionist headquarters, and have obtained control 'of both parties.'~ Meanwhile  the Unionist press is clamoring for  a reconstruction of the cabinet,.a  definite program of, army  reform,  and even the restoration of public  confidence.in  the efficiency of the  fleet.   -        --"-'"  1 Lord Roberts has been nominated  ���for�� secretary of'war by'one *of -the  leading journals, and lord Salisbury  is warned by his most loyal supporters, in the press that the country needs a positive assurance that  the old cabinet gang must be turned  out, new men put into right places,  and the military and naval services  organized,- not for peace,-but for  effective warfare.   These vagaries  of  judgment   are   signs  that the  country   has   been   upset   by the  pressure of excitement over Sou tli  Africa,    and    that    sober-minded  Englishmen   are   nervously'  overwrought.     Lord Salisbury's mentors,   however,   may   spare  themselves the trouble of insisting upon  the reconstruction of the cabinet.  The   result   is   inevitable.      Lord  Salisbury, like other old men, dislikes to break away from associates  of long standing, but he-has few  intimate'friends in the cabinet, and  has a high sense of public obliga-  tionr^The^changes-!!!- the~cabiriet"~  are   forced   upon   him   by   public  opinion and by the preferences of  overworked   ministers   for   retirement.     Lord   Lansdowne will be  transferred   to   the foreign   office  after the elections, and lord Salisbury will coach him on the China  question.     This is the result generally   expressed in the   diplomatic  circles.       -   GOOD NEWS   FOR BOXERS  They May Now Escape.

''''"/      "  - It Will Mean Reform.  London, September 30.��� Although the fact that the appointment of lord Roberts as commander-in-chief has been known, the  announcement  is   hailed   by  the  NONPAREIL'S CREW SAVED  Rescued by the Gloenbil.  New York, September 30.���The  British ship Gloenoil, which arrived  from Alexandria "and other points  in the Mediterranean, brought into  port twenty-three shipwrecked seamen, taken from the British ship  Nonpareil    on    September    23rd.  Their   vessel   foundered    shortly  after they abandoned her.     Captain   Hatfield,   on   his   arrival   at  quarantine, reported that his ship  sailed from New York on September 10th, bound for Sourabia, Java,  with a full cargo of case .oil.   Two  days after leaving Sandy Hook a  strong southwesterly wind sprang  up and soon increased in force and'  hauled to west by south and assumed'  the proportions of a hurricane. AH"  the sails were taken iri except two  lower topsails, which were 'set to  steady the vessel, as there was an  exceedingly   heavy -sea    running.  Frequently tons of water fell" upon  the deck, doing considerable damage   to  the   fittings," and   finally  throwing the vessel on her beam  ends.   The Nonpareil remained in  this position and all efforts to right  her, were   unavailing.   The   storm  continued Until Thursday, the 13th,'  at noon, and then moderated.  _ The sea, however," continued to  run very high, and there .was unsettled   arid   rough weather. ,  On  Frid^y,��the 21st, the storm" against  'bnrsJ; violently upon the ship,_ aud  the sails were blown away.    The  Nonpareil took severalheavy lurches  to starboard and settled down on  her beam ends and failed  to right  herself.   The seas which swept over  the vessel washed-' everything from  the decks, filled the dockhouses and  smashed the cabin skylights.    The  cabin was filled with water to the  deck.-- The* wheelhouse with compasses and many other valuables  were washed overboard.  "The ship filled herself dowfi^* to  the starboard poop.. The. ventilators and two boats on the starboard  side were washed away "during" the  night. The boats on the port side  ^eji-e^s.^yejin^and^render-d^jiseless/  and the part which was 'wSs&edto  the main deck on the starboard  side broke adrift, carrying the bolts  with it. Another spar on the  house was also wrenched, leaving  large holes in the decks which were  constantly flooded by th'e sea.   -  At 1 o'clock in the morning of  Saturday, the 22nd, the ship\was  lying at an angle of 40 degrees, and'  the crew were in constant danger  of being washed overboard. The  chief officer and several men were  injured during the trying times of  the past few days. The cabin was  filled with water and no place was  to be had to care for the injured.  The main and mizzen 'topmasts  were/ ordered down but did not  right'the ship. The gale continued  and a high cross sea pre'  vailed on the 22nd. The ship was  lying on" her starboard side, and  nothing could be seen but the port  bulwarks,f_ind-alHiope-of- saving-,  her was gone. At 3:30 in the afternoon the smoke of a steamer was  sighted, and as she came nearer she  sighted the wreck and started toward it. The steamer proved to be  Glengoil bound to New York. She  sent a boat and took off part of the  men, the injured being sent first.  AU had to jump overboard and  were hauled into.. the boat  by a rope. When the boat  returned to tho Glengoil it was  stove alongside, but its occupants  were safely handed on ; board the  steamer. Another boat was sent  and made two trips successfully.  The last trip was made after dark,  and when she went alongside of the  steamer, F. George, one of the boat's  crew, got crushed on the gunwhale  and was washed overboard and  lost.' The men./ were all  much exhausted, and struggling  the water in the effort to board  "vr-  Unionist partyas a pledge that the  army reorganization will be carried  out in the most 7en'_ctive ���manner.  It was beginning to be recognized  that something was needed to give  strength to the Unionist campaign.  Accordingly,'semi-official announcements are out that George Wyndham," parliamentary under secretary of state for war, in his speech  at Derby tomorrow eveniug will  outline the government's scheme of  army reforms, arid "that the war  office is arranging.with lord Roberts for the return'of a large portion of the army in South Africa.

No resistance  is offered to Mr. Kruger's departure, but the British government is  "believed by authorities on international law to be within its right  in demanding a guarantee that'- no  state property of the Transvaal is  included in the baggage of Kruger  and his" followers. The British  fleet has made no attempt since the  outbreak to prevent shipment of  gold by the Transvaal government  from Delagoa Bay.  The shipment of public records  by the Transvaal government may  be prohibited. But it ought to be  as easy for Mr. Kruger's friends to  conceal them on neutral -territory  as it has been to bury big guns  where they could not be found.  No reference has been made in discussions here to the Trent affair,  yet it has a bearing on the case.  Mason and Slidell. had money and  state papers with them when they  were taken prisoners, by captain  Wjilkes. The , British government  insisted upon their immediate release, and their right to sail under  a neutral flag with their state papers and treasure was <.triumphantly  vindicated. The case will be even  stronger if_ a man-of-war be substituted for a packet ship.  London, October 1.���An interesting report comes fromKoomati-,  poort to the effect that Mr. Kruger,  in a letter to his wife, announcing  that lie is going oil a six months'  holiday,������ said iu substance, that  after the capture of Machadodorp  he knew the struggle was hopeless,  and counseled moderation, but that  Mr. Steyn's arbitrary behaviour  overruled his counsel.

It says  that the Labor "party should con-  .   sider the question carefully before  placing a candidate in the field.    It  " ' argues that Smith Curtis polled 90  " per cent of the* labor vote in the  ,' provincial   contest last June, and  there is no likelihood of- a Labor  '. "candidate polling more than- 105  i- votes in the Boundary; that in, the  .- three ridings of. Yale, the Martin  '. candidates polled less - than 300  \ votes out of a total vote of 2500 in,  the June election, and a Labor  . candidate could not poll any more  _now.     This ..would give a Labor  member of parliament in the great  constituency of Yale-Cariboo. The  vote polled might be much smallei"  than 2250; might be so small that  the Labor party would not be a  recogni/.ed factor in subsequent  elections. '  It is safe to assume, whatever  action the Labor party takes on  Wednesday next, that neither  candidate Galliher nor candidate  MacNeill will be endorsed. This  would be the sensible position to  take, seeing that a Labor candidate  cannot be elected. The Labor men  should not be drawn at this time.  They should not show their opponents their strength until they know  their own strength.  Nelson has one-sixth the population of Spokane, and Spokane is  credited with having a population  of 38,5000.    In 1800 Nelson,, liad a  population of   less than 200, and  Spokane had a  population of less  than   20,000.      Spokane owes her  wonderful growth since 1800 almost  entirely to the mining districts of  Kootenay.      Had    tho    Cauadian  Pacific Railway Compauy straiued  a point and granted concessions to  Nelsou    that     could    have    been  granted, Spokane would today be a  town, of 25,000 and Nelson a city of  say 20,000.    It is not too late yet to  bring about the change.  The newspaper that.championed  the peddlers, and afterwards took,  up cudgels on behalf of the tax-  evading Chinese,"now favors "the  outside wholesale merchant as  against the local wholesale dealer.  It goes into hysterics over the fact  that wholesale liquor dealers outside the province are required to  take out a provincial wholesale  liquor dealer's-license if they, sell  to others than wholesale liquor  dealers within the province. This  is a provincial law, arid in rio way  interferes with city municipalities.  If the legislative assembly has seen  fit to protect wholesale dealers in  unorganized districts in. the   pro-  candidate less than 500 votes in the  whole of Yale, or less than a sixth  of the voting strength of the district.     The .vote, in LilIooe_t and  Cariboo/where there is no Labor-  party,   would   not  be  materially  affected   by   a. Labor   candidate.  Rossland      and      Trail       might  give , a;,   Labor    candidate    one-  third   of their total  vote," which  was less than 1300 at the provincial  election.    Nelson riding is strongly  against bringing out a Labor candidate, and if one is nominated at  the convention on Wednesday, the  nominee could not poll 300 votes  out   of   the -1000 polled last June.  What is true of Nelson riding.is.  true   of, Slocan,    Revelstoke   and  northeast Kootenay ridings.   There  is   but   one -provincial   riding   in  which the Labor men might have a  .fighting .chance.. With the large  " labor .vote- at. Fernie, ^ Kimberley  and   Moyie,   southeast   Kootenay  might be carried by a Labor candidate.   Summed up on  the basis, as  above outlined, a Labor candidate  would not poll to exceed 400 votes  in Yale district, 50 in the two Lil-  looets, 50 in Cariboo, 400 in Rossland and Trail, 300 in Nelson riding,  300 in Slocan riding, 200 in Revelr  stoke   riding,   100. in    northeast:  Kootenay,   and   350- iri   southeast1  Kootenay; or a total of 2250 votes.-  y_.ud   2250   votes will not elect a  Wilson5'^"  Specially recommended  lor dyspepsia,   .loss of  appetite,   sleeplessness,  indigestion,    weakness  liom  whatever  cause,  nervousness,    _ fevers,  consumption,    malaria  mid general debility.

Why-  should not the city council of Nelson protect the wholesale dealers in  cigars and the cigar manufacturers  of Nelson if it is within their  power? It is safe to say that the  Kootenaj'- Cigar Manufacturing  Compauy disburses more money  every year for wages than is spent  in Nelson during a year by all the  commercial travelers that come  here from Eastern Canadian and  Coast cities. Wholesale houses  located in Nelson are required to  pay the city $20 a year for the  privilege of doing business in the  city. Then why- should outside  wholesale houses have a like piivi-  lege without the payment of a cent?  The Miner is tho organ of every  cltiss and element that wants to  "do" the city.  Opposed to a Hopeless Struggle.  Sandon Paystreak.  A Labor convention will be held  in Nelson on AVednesday, October  3rd, for the purpose of deciding  whether or not a Labor candidate  shall be nominated to contest the  constituency of Yale-Cariboo-.  Kootenay. Trades and labor councils, labor unions, socialist clubs  and political reform societies from  all parts of the riding will send representatives, and the voice of the  convention should fairly indicate  the sentiments of Labor and Independents in this riding. If this  convention decides to nominate a'  candidate it will be because the  delegates present are satisfied that  a Labor candidate will win. The.  Labor party does not intend to  throw itself off on a hopeless strug-;  gle, and unless the convention finds  reason to believe that a Labor man  can be elected no nomination will  be made.

Mr.  Shaughnessy replied: "When I was  here last year I told you the surveys would probably be made this  year^but the shortage of the wheat  crop of Manitoba and other local  causes have interfered with our  plans.
