In Victoria, colonel Prior defeated E. ."WBodwell, who  was the candidate of all the "forces arrayed against the then premier, James  Dunsmuir. In-North Nanaitno, W; W.  B.

The Opposition have therefore gained one seat through ^the five  contests, but the total vote ��� polled by  the parties was about the same, so that  -the result of the-five elections cannot be  taken as an evidence that-a.majority of  the people are opposed to the Government., Brown was defeated in New  Westminster by 65, yet he'is the strong-  est^man in that town today.

Johnson,   bre; buyer for the  Americari..Smeltih^; &   Refining   Company (the Lead;Trust), -says his cbni-  pany is prepared to resume purchasing  silver-lead ores froni Kootenay" mine  owners. Some of the mine owners say  Mr. Johnson is only talking through  his Mi at,* while others say he means  business. One thing is certain, the  American Smelting & Refining Company meant business two years ago  when they stopped purchasing Kootenay silver-lead oresj and the miners of  these ores were compelled to look for a  market elsewhere. . Kootenay mine  owners are trying to secure the Canadian market for a portion of the output of their mines, arid it is to be hoped  they will succeed, for if they do it will  then not be within the power of the  American Lead Trust to shut them out  of a,market at will. :, Canada, in order  to have continuous .prosperity, must  make itself as independent as possible  of foreign manufacturers, and the  American Lead Trust is a foreign manufacturer. ".One smelter in operation in  British Columbia is worth more to Canada than a half dozen smelters in operation in the United States or. in Wales  or in Mexico or in Spain.  iThe;8hafehb1dere 1  ;pai*|*fi���L��  gmatepialv^^^  IwillSi'prcKi^  v u p^b-rd a^el^rMwspaper^  :_.^XAJ_.1::*_;�� "-.^-WA-ir^^Mli.K^ "i��'*.;:Viih-#\+i��__����V_ wo-rl'J  speciaKfeature^^ll^  ;ing>p.lan;t';i;TheS^rib  Jthe|biinding;*;;ejec^  -;:;*,",'- ~ '^^cDonaldtfe'^d^'^'^5 "^;";" ���"-'" ~"'^  w  ��� is now  ;bjeinj^iu|^;by| t^Dail3>^Pfc^  ^Ojscar^W^ite'f-Xs-u^  Sl^iaipSt^r;riiiriepand.^  a-fieS^ns^pr^  iiUrin^tnip-w^  -���mpy ing^in; the.Slpc^  ���t:Tbe'*':su'ppp:_^  claim-they will felect^  majority ,and-; are 7olE_eHng^w^  2 ibll that :W.^^jiUe^  many-votes as he; polled ;pri January?  15th.v  There ���is ;no Gillett imbniBjr^in:  "sight���VP^ye'^Carley^  Belvilie Tompkins assumes- the man-;  agerheiit of the Phair'"'.hbtei "tomorrpw.

Mr. Mackenzie while in Rossland ma.11-  aged-a big 7 mine successfully for its  owners, and on leaving it had the respect of the business umen of Rossland  and the esteem of thermen who worked  under him. No roan should expect  more from his fellow citizens. John H.  Mackenzie demonstrated that nrning  could be conducted profitably in British  Columbia without decrying the laws of  the country or bulldozing workingmen,  and for that reason he leaves the province with the good wishes of the people of Kootenay.  43Kt&  \ i-Jts.M&'rtA'-*'*-*-^^  m  n  ,    j:  i   J  t   *  f,    i  ***��-  The   Nelson   Xrifotttie*  BANK OF MONTREAL  Established 1817.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1903  .On January 15th, ,415 electors voted  for Dr. Rose" for mayor, as agajnst 236  for W.\ W:���Beer;. so it _ must be admitted that nearly   two-thirds of~ the j porters  by thedection of James" A. Gilker."as.,  alderman on Tuesday.   If the people of  ssm  r, .*��-  *.i}_  , people of Nelson  prefer to have their  . - crvic affairs in charge of mayor Rose  ' during the year 1903. t Had they wanted them to be in charge of W. W. Beer  " tliey would have said  so at the polls.  The vote for aldermen was almost as  pronounced.(   The average vote of the  six men who ran 'for aldermen -mmi the  same ticket as Dr.  Rose was 345, as  against 274 for the six men who ran for  aldermen on the'Beer.Partv ticket.   In  the East ward the vote was very pronounced, the three candidates on  the  Beer Party ticket polling an  average  vote of 140, as against 247 polled for  their opponents.   Seeing that so large a  majority favored Dr. Rose and the candidates on his aldermanic ticket a month  ago, have  these gentlemen done anything to forfeit the confidence of the  people   since    they   obtained   office?  ^ They attempted to curtail the expenses  of carrying.on the business of the city,  and at every turn met with opposition  from; the men who are now supporting  W. G. Gillett's candidacy.   The effort  to reduce the city clerk's staff to two  men was opposed by the three Beer,  aldermen.   The effort to   inquire into  . the management of the scavenger department was sidetracked by the same  aldermen.   The effort to push work on  the power house on Kootenay river was  forestalled by delegating to an outsider  duties   that  properly  belong  to   the  mayor.   If mayor Rose is to carry out  the policy he promised ihe electors he  would carry out if  elected, he must  have the support of a majority of the  council.   That majority will be given1  the East ward want the policy of ihe  Beer Party to be carried out in the  council,.then they will elect "W7G.**Gil-  lett alderman on Tuesday. It is not a  question-of men. -Instead, it is a_.qi.es-;  tion of policy. , Mayor Rose and .those  who support him know that he, stands  for-the-* erection of a powerhouse on  Kootenay-river and for economy" in the;  conduct aof the city's business affairs,  lie and they have always stood for the  erection of the power house on _Koot-  enay fiver, _and>hey are not later-day  converts'to;* that -business proposition.  Not so with W. G.rGillett and his sup-  - ''When'he was in Tthe counqil  he always voted against, the power  house, proposition'; not only,that, but  he worked and voted to carry through  the deal whereby the West Kootenay  Power & LighrCo.npany was to' get- a  contract-for furnishing, the city-with  power, through which the cit^ would,  have been cinched to the tune of $10,-  000. "If he is supporting the power  house proposition novi\it is a sort of  death-bed repentance. It_is_a _case-of  "when the devil is sick,  the devil a  saint would be; when the devil is well,  the devil a saint is he."   When  Gillett  is a candidate for office, he is a believer  in municipal ownership of public utilities.    When   Gillett   is  in   office,   he  works in harmony with the men who do  not'believein  municipal ownership of  anything.   James A. Gilker is not on  the fence on any question.   He was an  alderman in  1897 and 1898, and   his  record   is   straight  on   all    questions.  Since leaving the council he has not  wabbled around in order to cuny favor  with the class  who know   men   only  'when they want to use them.   He is a  property  owner  who   has   made  his  money in Nelson, and, like ��very other  pioneer, he takes pride in trying to advance the interests of the town  which ,  he has helped to upbuild for  fifteen '  years.   A vote FOR JAMES A. GIL-'  KER will be a vote  FOR  NELSON,  and not for the West Kootenay Power  & Light Company, Limited, of Rossland.  City clerk .Strachan is an old man,  who has worked for the city since Feb-  a young man, who has worked for the  city since February, 1899. In January  of this year they were told that they  would be required to perform the clerical work of the city offices without a  regular assistant; Both bucked, although the salary of the one was to be  increased from $1200 to $1300 a year  and the other was to be relieved of the  duties pertaining to the assessment of  real estate. Both put themselves on  record as being opposed to the announced policy of a majority of the city  council, a policy that was approved by  a large majority.of the people; in other  words, they told the council that they  (the council) were4 attempting to do  something that should not be done. If  the city-8 business affairs can be managed without the direction of the city  council, why have a city council? If  the city.; council are by law made responsible for the management of the  city's business affairs, then it is the  duty of subordinate city officials to obey  the orders of the city council; and if  they will not do it, it is the plain duty  of the city council to install "in office  men who will. The young man who is  unwilling to do his duty is as blame-able  as the old man who neglects to do his.  The postponement of the date of the  meeting  of  the  legislative   assembly  from Thursday, March 12th, to Thursday, April 2nd, can only   mean that  premier Prior is not ready to meet the  house;   that he is not ready because he  has yet to get the support of a working  majority of the members.  Were grants  to railways and other questions of importance sidetracked altogether, it is  doubtful if premier Prior could secure a  working majority  in the^house.   Ti*e  people do not seem to have confidence  in his government, and a majority of  the members do not care to run counter  to the wishes of their constituents.   In  West'Yale, only one* member "of the  government  helped   the   government  candidate on * the stump.'  This would  indicate that either the people of West  Yale are antagonistic to'the members  of the government individually or that  "tire���go vera'm emr-u6l -ecrtveiyr~n'aa'i~jnq"  Tntertsf" iri~ securing "the return of_ a  .man   who   was   expected " to   support,  them  in  the "house1. "-Tt is,-true? provincial secretary ^Mclnnes" was on .the  stump;   but -the   provincial   secretary  could,stump'any "constitliency- in the  province and rbe,-accorded a,.good hearing whether,those who turned'out,--to  hear him agreed with .his views or not.  W. W. B'.-Mdnnes is a good speaker;,  ^probably   the best stump speaker  in  the province.   He is'a good fellow by  nature, and good fellows, are good mix-  ers, and it'takes a., good mixer to" be a  good politician.   The premier is a good*  fellow among his own class, but he is  not a good mixer oiitside^ of Victoria.  Finance minister Prentice is a good fellow, but he can't mix outside the doors  of the Union Club."   The chief commissioner of lands and works is not a poli-  tician.   The attorney-general is 'a politician and a mixer, but he leaves every-*-  one with the impression  that'1'he   is  simply a "jollier" and is insijicere and  doesn't mean anything he says or does.  Such a combination is without elements  involved more than the writing of a  name. When it comes to putting up a  membership fee, the membership roll  of the Nelson branch of the Provincial  Mining Association will not require  more than one side of one sheet of foolscap paper for the signatures. Not because the people of Nelson dp not believe in organization to accomplish results, but because the people of Nelson  are of opinion that.British Columbia  has suffered^ and i�� suffering from a  gang of pessimistic agitators, of which  E. B. Kirby and A. ���.Gait of Rossland  are fair specimens. The people of Kootenay are fighting for the,..exclusion of  Chinese and Japanese, and are not in  sympathy with thej agitators who are  clamoring for changes in our placer  mining laws which will allow men, like  R. D. Featherstonhaugh, to employ  Chinese and Japanese to the exclusion  of white labor. /  The strike at the mines of the Crowds  Nest Pass Coal Company is doing much  indirect damage, for it is driving good  workmen out of British Columbia.  Good workmen will not stay in a country unless they can obtain permanent  employment. Smelters and mines that  are compelled to close down from time  to time"for lack of necessary supplies,  like fuel, do not furnish permanent  employment. Hence, when they are  operated'-theif workmen are not of the  first class, and not being of the first  class, the cost of operation is larger  than it should be. This is how the province is losing indirectly through .the  strike at the Crow's Nest coal mines,  and.it is how the province has lost  through every strike that has taken  place in Kootenay. Good workmen will  not allow themselves to be imposed on,  and good managers will, not impose  unfair methods on., their workmen.  Good mine managers dp not find it  necessary to bribe the officers of miners' unions, as has been done at Fernie  and Michel,, and as was attempted'a  year ago at Rossland. And.as long as  such methods are kept up the province  of JBritish Columbia 'will, suffer directly  and .indirectly; from strikes, ,and .the,  indirect loss' will always' be greater  than the direct loss. .

If these  names had been obtained as members  are for other organizations, like boards  of trade, the numbers would be significant.   It would mean that a good percentage of the people were of the opinion that something could be done in  the way of legislating values into, low-  grade ores and correcting the abuses of  mine mismanagement and over-capitalization.   But the number of names on  the membership roll of the Provincial  Mining   Association has little significance, as the names were obtained just  as names are on any ordinary  petition.  In Nelson some 270 names were on the  membership roll, and it is safe to say  that a like number could be obtained  to a petition denouncing the Provincial  Mining Association.

The   Conservative  and   the  Liberal  parties have both declared themselves in  favor of conducting the next provincial  election on party lines.   The declarations were made in   regularly constituted party conventions.   The adherents of the two dominating parties who  deem themselves "regular" are therefore committed to party-line politics.  The question then arises, what percentage of the adherents of the two parties  can be estimated as "regular'?   On the  Mainland, it is safe to estimate the percentage at from 75 to 100, varying in  places.   On the Island, the percentage  may not be as large, but the party-line  men in the City of-Viccor^a outnumber  the Mugwumps.   The Mugwumps are  men who know that they can have no  place of honor or trust in either the  Conservative   or  the   Liberal   parties.  They have been tried and  have been  found "wanting." The people now insist  that they shall pass on the men who  are to govern -them-... and. ���* as a rule  <he people generally ���������get*-what they  want.   If a  majority of the people of  ' British Columbia want Conservatives  to govern them for four years, they will  say so at the polls at the next election,  and the minority will accept the situation.    If a majority "vote the  Liberals  into power, the Conservatives will have  to be satisfied.   The Mugwumps will j  cut no figure in the next general election  in the province of British Columbia.
