Ol the result, the Kosslaud Minn says:
The election in the Rossland riding has
resulted in the return ot lion. Smith Cur.
tiss by a majority ot 36, and in the delrat
ot Hon. C. II. Mackintosh, lite will of
the majority prevails, and Mr. Curtis
will, it would seem, occupy a seat in the
legislature. Two things added materially
In the election ot the successful candidate
and made it difficult tor his very popular
opponent to make much headway in the
lace of such fortuitous circumstances.
One thing which greatly assisted r.
Curtis was liis taking the Initiative in the
settlement of the labor troubles which so
disturbed the nlfalrs ot the Kosslaud
camp a lew weeks since. This made Mr.
('.mlK Irieuds among Ihe members ol the
Miner's union and other bodies ot a like
character, and secured him not a lew sup
potters among the business men of the
city. I his caused him to have the major
ity which he did in this city. In the
Mmiud.iry country his promise to give the
people there a competing railway, it is
certain, gave him many supporters there.
I hese two circumstances, coupled with a
mistaken idea that the most estimable
gentleman who ran against him was not a
Iriend of organized labor, caused his elec
tion. It is certain that had a man of less
personal popularity than (ioveruor Mack
intosh, or one who has done less for Ihe
mining interests ot the camp, ran against
Mr. Curtis, lie would have been beaten
bv a much larger majority than he was.
