The Board of Trade Journal, of London, England, publishes the following
from their own correspondent, dated
Victoria, Feb, 181)5;
"Last year British Columbia, 111 common willi tlio rust uf tlie world, suffered depression ina marked degree, This
has been tlie result, in iia euse, of tlie
depreciation iu real estate securities,
tlie withholding of uulside capital and
the restriction of credits, lieing Hie
natural reflex effeel nf Hie general financial crisis—a sort of tidal backwash,
That Ibis is true is shown by the fact
that the volume nf trade nud Industry
has mil diminished; in fact, compared
with 1803, there lias been an increase,
especially gratifying on account of the
depression having reached its lowest
ebb during 1801. The outlook is promising, and this is of particular Interest
tn tbe British puhlic, Inasmuch as the
extraordinary development now taking place in the mining districts will
open up a wide Held of investment,
und indirectly affect trade in a marked
degree. A close study of the career of
the British Investor has remarked the
cycle wliieli it presents, one country
after another attracting liis attention,
inflations and depressions following
alternately, until bo may be said to
have almost boxed the compass, It
may be predicted Unit in view of the
mineral wealth of British Columbia,
that country will next, occupy liis attention. Tlie Kootenay district has
experienced tlie lirst real development
that has occurred in that province
since the days of the gold excitement
in the early sixties, after wliieli mining was spasmodic and uncertain. In
1804 tlie value of ore shipments, tlie
first in the history of Kootenay, was
$770,000. Tl'is was the output of aboul
half a dozen mines, but principally of
one or two, and represents simply initial work, rendered possible liy the
completion very recently of several
lines of communication, and liy which
ore is now lieing shipped regularly. In
view of the nu in her of mines lieing
opened up, the rich character of the
ores, and Hie extraordinary extent of
the mineral formations, Kootenay district alone expects to vie with South
Africa in mineral products within the
next five years. A safe estimate for
the output in 1805 is $5,000,000, Two
of the largest hydraulicing works on
the continent were last year inaugurated in Cariboo, whicli lias yielded
$50,000,000 in gold dust since 1800. The
Yalo district, near the American
boundary, is showing some rich gold
leads in tlie course of development.
These are the beginning of a mining
era, and they are referred to here ns
to their probable effect in relation to
trade. So far tlie mining properties
are in the bands of Americans, who
have taken tlie initiative in development., and who, so far as possible, direct the trade arising oul of them into
American channels,
The imports ami exports for the
year, and the receipts from tlie Inland
revenue and post, office and other barometrical returns show no falling off,
so that tbe statement lirst ventured
that tlie depression is due to causes
outside rather than from within, unless
it be a ton general speculation in veal
estate, would seem to be too well jus-
titled. The indications on all sides
point lo a speedy revival. One of the
important factors in a return to pros-
peril y will lie tlie progress of Hie milling industry, and in this regard, liol b
in point of Investment, and tins consequent trade iu mining machinery, contractors'supplies, etc., I lie Uiilish public aro in danger of neglecting an opportunity that tho Americans are nol
failing to take advantage of, Tlie importance of the mines in llriiish Columbia has mil been realized in Great
Britain, because they are unknown, or
practically so. There are mines—such
as the .Silver King, tbe Slocan Slur,
and the War Bugle, In lbe Kootenay
district, as rich as anything on Un-
American emit inenl, and will rank
with (lie Cotnstock ami Broken Hill
mines when developed; and so widely
distributed Is the miners,! wealth thai
these are bul a few of llie many approaching them in i-icliiie-s. Some
shipments go much higher, but tho ore
averages at the smelter lrom$46tn
$100 per Ion, a staleiiienl which may
be officially verified. Eyen at the low
price of silver they are paying band- |rv
Borne profits, Hero Is a wide Held for
British enterprise mid capital, and in a
few yenrs for lucrative trade.   If the
mineral resources of South Africa,
Western Australia, and India are re.
celving constant attention, it Is sur.
prising tl)at tbe mining development
of British Columbia should lie left entirely to the Americans. The letter
from our Victoria correspondent calls
special attention to the outlook for Investors in mines in that part of the
world. Out' correspondent, we havo
reason to know, is neither directly nor
indirectly Interested in mines; and we
should have a very strong objection to
OQming one particular sot of mines
above all others. What, lie lias written is. we believe, tliu result of strong
convictions and careful study of ilm
conditions existing in ibis province. It
seems sclil'cely  possible  to convince
iiiisideis and particularly the average
llriiish  investor,   of  the  extent and
richness of the minerals of British On,
umbla in gold and silver. |n tbe district of Kootenay llieir occurrence In
great bodies widely distributed is re,
markable. The Silver King properties
were syndicated in England and stock-
ed at $1,600,000, The report of the expert upon which tlie mine waa negotiated is available, and from this it ap.
pears that the ore in sight will pay for
the mine, nnd leave a surplus of several Limes its cost. This Ib the only
property in which British capital is
largely interested, and it is only one
of the great properties that are lieing
developed. Tlie rest, are in the hands
of Americans, who practically control
the mining industry in the southern
part of the province, and everything
imported, men and machinery, is
American. The Slocan Star, for a sixteenth share in which $100,000 was re,
fused, has a tunnel of several hundred
yards working in sold ore, This is per.
Imps the most remarkable property be.
ing developed, but the richness of thu
ore is not less noteworthy, averaging
$1(10 a too at the smelter, Picked ores,
run niucb higher, There is certainly
every reason to believe that this will,
be tho next great minitig country, So
much is thought of the prospect, that
three different lines of railway have
lieen built into the mining districts of
Kootenay, which depend solely upon
the ore to come out for their earnings,
and several more have been projected,

MAIL 4CCOMMNDATJON.
Tho Colonist of April 23 calls ther
attention of the Government to the
need of supplying better mail accommodation to Cariboo, I'be Government, it says, should rather anticipate
the needs of so promising a district
than wait tube importuned to give it
the postal oonveniencies it requires,
and winch are essential tq, |ls proper
and speedy development, The mails
go to Borkerville only once a week j
Hie accommodation should be doubled
at once, and even then, we believe,
semi-weekly mails will not \\\ a short
time lie found sufficient for Hie needs
of tlie disl rict.
We quite agree with the Colonist
when it says the Government should,
anticipate the needs of a promising
district, rather than want to be Importuned to give ll Hie postal convene,
ences it requires, and yet. when was it,
otherwise ? Has an instance ever been
recorded when the Government antici*,
pated Hie needs of a district ? We are,
afraid not. So similarly are the two,
districts situated as regards postal
accommodation that were the words,
"Lower Okanagan," substituted for-
Cariboo" the same remarks would he.
applicable t« this country. Our own
experience leaches that tlie Govern.,
meat's policy in these matters is far,,
very far, from lieing one of antlripa*,
tion,
We are constantly riiniindei) that
the advorse policy is thu one ever purs
sued, In Ihe great loss and inconvenience of Hum- whom \t should be the
duty of the Govern moot to serve.

HOADS AND MAILS.
To recent enquiries put to many travellers who have made use of our trunk
road between Grand Forks and Penticton, as to its condition for travel,
the same answers lp'tvu been received
from all, viz,, ti-cy see no reason why
anyone driving oyer it should not. make
guod I hue, and with the exception nf
about ii mile on the summit at Camp
McKinney ^uJ a like" distance on
Boundary mountain, the road is in
about lis gnnd condition as it will (ie
at any time Ibis summer, If, therefore, we are correctly informed, and
we know no reason to doubt it, there
can be little excuse given why the
mails should not now be carried between llu- points above mentioned, as
stipulate m the contract,
Some time ago, when the roads were
in a really bad condition, Inspector
Fletcher (who by the liy, never inspects this lower country) granted the
mall carrier the privilege of making
the round trip in six days instead of
four. To this the public, being not at
all unreasonable, made no objection,
as they recognized its necessity. No\v|
however, sioee the conditions ot things
are changed, they consider no time
should be lost, by the mall carrier in
rendering a service to conform with
the stipulations of his contract.
Mails will then lie received ut Grand
Forks a day earlier, and three days will
be allowed for answering lbe same, instead of one, as at, present.

JAPAN AND RUSSIA.
At present the outlook iu Hie Fast
WPiirs ratlier a serious aspect, owing to
tlie fact thai Russia seems determined
to interfere, to pi-event the carrying
into effect. Hie treaty j;t;cently entered
into between phinii rtn j Japan. Japan,
it would seem, Resents I be idea nf Russian Interference, and contemplates
assuming a defiant attitude toward
Russia, whom she believes has not
military forces in the East, sufficiently
powerful to enforce her demands, Il
is greatly to lie hoped, however, that
Japan will adopt no such suicidal policy, as there is every indication that
Russia will not stand alone, but will
receive the hearty co-operation of Ger-
inany, France, i'i nil jjrobalily Spain,
Against, such a rnnmfdalile array of
foreign powers, Jap.ui could offer no
effective resistance, iind should force
lie resorted to, the at present ull-ron-
querlng Kingdom would undoubtedly
imt only lose her recently-acquired
li. itoi'ial and other concessions,
ilit might have inflicted upon
pel' an indemnity even greater
[hull she is exacting from her fallen
foe. In considering this question it
is well, however, not to he too apprehensive of it conflict between the powers interested, as we should be at all
piles mindful of tbe precedent estab-
'ished in the settlement of the great
question which agitated Europe at Hie
time ot tlie Riissii-Tiu-kish war, viz., by
a conference of the powers at Berlin.
Arbitration, no doubt, will be the
Incthoil adopted in the adjustment of
present difficulties, provided nothing
is done by either Russia or Japan
which would make it impossible to resort to this means of settling their
differences,

| Mr, J, McNicol, our local merchant,
''.returned on Friday to Midway after an
/extended trip to Spokane, Trail creek,
Northport and Boundary City. He
slates that interest, iu our mining district is awakened in the minds of Spokane liusiness men, and many intend
lo come and inspect our camps.
Judge Spinks left for the upper
/country on last. Monday's stage, having come over from Kootenay. A,
large number of cases ivnre disposed of
at. Nelson, tlie court proceedings requiring no less than live days. Two
days was taken up iu adjusting fhe

Mr. M. Barrett, of Armstrong, came
to tn-vn on Monday last in company with Mr. (J. de B. Green, who
came over from Osoyoos. Mr, Barrett
is the. British Columbia agent for the

Messrs. F. S, Belton and J. Stunden

a thorough investigation into all matters pertaining to customs dues, as also
gathering tbe necessary information
for an extended report to the Dominion Government, who have in view the
adoption of a more stringent system of
customs regulations all along the
Boundary line. On leaving bore they
proceed to Vernon and thence to points

Until within tlie last few days we
.were always inclined In feel that we
were more or less isolated from the

of a bicycle into our midst ou Tuesday, tlie feeling has passed away to a

MINING  NOTES.
Mr. W. H, Norris located the Trilby
claim in Providence camp, on May 2.
Messrs, Ileii'/.ler and Wilbur lure
been doing their assessment work on
the Montezuma, an extension of the
Steniwiiiiler,
Assessment work is being done on
the Brooklyn, Deadwood camp, by
the owners, .1. Taylor, Heo. Kumber*
get', and others,
Mr. J. J. Winters started Wednesday morning for tlie Meadow Lark,
Skylark camp, upon whicli claim he
intends doing theassessmentwork.
Mr. B. Denzler has completed assessment work on the Stem winder, Greenwood iiamp. The vein has been traced
throughout many of the adjacent,
claims and looks more promising than
ever.
Messrs. Dittmer and Bosshart are
able to show some fine specimens of
free gi)ld ore, taken a few days ago out
of the Gold Drop claim, recently located pn Prior creek, near Summ|t
camp.
Messrs. Reid and Cole, who went to
Spokand last week.on business in cnn.
nection with tlie Last Chnnce claim,
intend to make the purchase of a whim
before returning. When this is in
operation il. will make the second in
the Boundary camps.
For some lime past developinenl.
work has been carried on upon the
Montezuma claim, in Greenwood camp,
and now word comes from the owners
that they have struck the fnmiitis
Stemwinder vein of ore on their property- The Montezuma, is a north extension of the Stemwinder and was located In 189!) by Messrs. Humphrey and
Keightley. The strike greatly enhances the value of the Montezuma.
and upon their good fortune the own*
pes'may be congratulated.
Mr. W. T. Smith returned a few days
ago from Spokane, coming down to
Midway after visiting the ■ Summit
camp. He reports work progressing
favorably at thu Emma claim, the tine
(wring up of Ihe shaft preparatory to
erecting the whim which is on the way
in. being about completed. A large
number of mining men are on their
way in, and are expected shortly, to
Inspect the iiiums, and he expresses
the wish that something be done hy
the Government to provide belter
trail and road accommodation, so that
travel may be facilitated between the
Afferent mining camps.
From a reliable soiu-ee we are in-
fnrmed that Mi-. T. Elliot, of Fairview,
has decided to ship a hundred tons of
ore tn tbe Tacoma smelter, ins I -r
the cut... ids formerly in . ndi I Lo
be -.... li seems tla- ore samples|
'i given lUch satisfactory results
iii 'i after deducting $31 a ton for
freight, etc., it is believed he will be |
able to net the badsome profit of $50
per ton on the ore, as it has been found
to contain gold nij/d silver to the
amount of 1(181. A few more claims
at-nding out ore from the Lower Okanagan would divert a little of llle attention being paid to Trail creek a//d
Kootenay into other channels.
CORRESPONDENCU.
A Ituuchcr'B Views.
To tbo Editor ol Tny, Advanck :
Sir—Seeing in various papers letters
signed "Farmer," "Rancher," etc,,
saying that" Free Trade" would ruin
the fanners of this district, I hope yop
will publish this letter as showing that
all farmers do not think alike, As
I voted for protection in Ontario 1(1
years ago, I will sum up the reasons
that induced tne and other farmers to
do so. Here, let us say, is a farmer located on a piece of land over 100 miles
from a large town. Every tiling lie has
to sell has to be traded out in the nearby stoics, unless be has wheat, pork,
or cattle. He cannot sell his other products for cash, and as for his perishable
garden products be cannot sell them at
all. To send them to the city the
freight would cost too much. In steps
the N. P. Here is the remedy for all
this: Let us agree to bonus manufacturers ; let us give them the monopoly
of our trade to give them a start; they
will then put up factories and mills; a
railway will be built i hundreds of
hands will be employed; a town will
be built up in tlie midst of our farms,
and we will have a market at outdoors. It is done. The railway is
laid j tlie tafl-n grows up; and the
farmer—where is he? Analyse the
exports of Canada, and see tbe value of
the personal effects, etc, etc., he has
taken with him. Look at the enormous cost to Canada of raising or importing the emigrants that have lefl
us, The estimated cost of raising a
man to maturity is $1,000, Multiply
that liy the number who haye left ns
and see what Canada has lust. What
is the reason? It is this: We have
to pay more for what we buy than we
gain on what we sell. Twenty-live per
cent more for the ploughs; thirty-five
per cent more for tlie hoe; fifty per
cent more for the milk pans, etc., etc.
Schooling for out- children costs more,as
there is a duly on books, papers, pens,
&c. Our doctors' bills are higher, as
the doctor has to buy protected medicines ; out- religion costs more, as the
preacher has to live and is compelled
to pay a higher price for what he
needs. Even the bible is taxed hve
per cent. R, G. S,

PARSED AWAY.
Mrs. Jamas Itfonnglmu Dies lu Spokane
After an Illness of Several Weeks.
On April 22. In Spokane, the beloved
wife of Mr, ,lnn|i's Monnghan, passed
away after an llless of several weeks,
from rheumatism and lagrippa,
The Spokesman-Review, commenting upon ber death and burial, says:
She leaves, besides her husband, six
children, three girls and three boys,
Robert, who is a cadet in tlie United
States naval academy at Annapolis,
lining the eldest.
Mrs. Monnghan was one of the pioneer women of the northwest. She
came to Walla Walla with her parents
from Ireland in 1850, when site was
seven years old, and was married to
Mr. Monaglian in Walla Walla in 1871
They moved to Fort Colville and subsequently lived at Fort Spokane and
Coeur d'Alene city, tinally settling
down in Spokane, Mrs. Mohaghan's
maiden name was McCool, and her
aged parents are still living at Walla
Walla. Hugh McCool, collector of
Customs at Nqrthport, is her. brother,
as are also Joseph and James, McCool.
She was a lady of loveable qualities
and was possessed of a kindly disposition which made her many friends.
Mr. Monaglian, who is one of the
earliest pioneer settlers of the northwest, and his family, will receive the
sympathy of friends throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British
Columbia in 'heir great, loss.
"She was essentially a pioneer woman, with all tlie attributes of the
founders of this great commonwealth,"
said Hon, M, M. Cowley last night,
"She was (u.11 of charity, generous-
hearted to a degree subjoin known,
Hweet-tempeved, mildest, gifted with n
graciousness not often sut'ivissed. She
was conspicuous for her goodness, perfect in her reliance upon the goodness
of God and the virtue of her neighbors,
the sweetest of mothers, llie best of
wives, tlie must dutiful of daughters,
She went to meet bet-Creator believing
and trusting in tlie life to come witli a
convincing strength that never failed."
Her funeral, whicli took place on
Thursday, the 25th, was attended by a
large number of friends and sorrowing
relatives.
At 10 o'clock the funeral procession
moved from tlie family residence,
01,110 Pearl street, to St. Alnysius
chapel, where solemn reipiiuin mass
was said, and where the funeral sermon was delivered by Rev, Father
Palladlni, After the set vices tlie cortege proceeded to the Catholic, cem
etery, where the Rev, Father Smith
officiated in the ccreineiiy of blessing
the grave.
The [inil hearers *v«jb Hon, M. M,
i ih ..■  .;.. Frank P. Hogan, William O'Brien, Thomas Donnelly, P, J?.
Quinn and M, O'Shea.   In addition I"
llieni were the honorary pali bearers-
all friends "f tbe family—James N.
Glover, Geo. B. McAuley, Louis Zieg-
ler, James Graham and Henry W. i
Fiiiiwealber.  Tlie bearers marched to
the chapel jn company with the members of the lyiidies' Sodality of St. |
Alnysius parish, whn attended in a j
body.
The floral tributes to the memory of
the departed were surpassing in their
magnificence. There wus a large cross
and crown from the Irish-American
Association, an etnblamatic sickle from
the ladj.es of Coeur d'Alene, a pillow of
white with the simple word " mother,"
tlie children, a crown from the Ladies
Sodality, a crescent from Mr. and Mrs.
M. O'Sliea, and among others who sent
Hot-ill tributes were Mr. and Mrs. \yil-
Ham O'Brien, Mr. and Mrs. D. M.
Drumbiller, Air. and Mrs. George
Latham, Mr. and Mrs. E. W. O'Sliea,
Mr, and Mrs, W, S, Noiijiiiu, and Mrs,
II. W. Lane.
Tbe members of the family will go
to Colville to visit tlie family of Mrs.
Graham, Robert Monnghan will probably return to the Naval Acaddmy at
Annapolis, Sunday.

SCRAPS Of SCILNCE- i
Iron rusts more rapidly in wet than iu

latter is combined with hydrogen.
Prof. Bonney says that a full of fifteen
to twenty degrees Fahrenheit In the average temporal nre would lie sufficient to account fur all known ghicialion iu the

It is interesting to note that while the
death rate aiming children has been perceptibly lessened, that among adults has
Increased. Ninetecn-century progress and
research protects the life at one end, only
to overtax uml snap it off suddenly at the
other.
It is not. generally known that when a
person fulls into the water a common felt
hat can lie mode use of as a life preserver.
By placing the hat upon tl/c wnter, rim

slightly to the breast, it will boar a man
up fur hours.
Desiccated milk began to attract attention more than half a century ago, It was
then called lactoline, and, according to ao*
coiinti-pf the period, uu addition of nine
pnrts of wnter would reduce it to fresh
milk. The modern condensed milk is an
|mprqypm<mt upon this enrlier product.

Home tbaf requires thein to leave the
order as a prerequisite of ineuilieiship
jn the cbtjrch. There are aliuut 5,000
members, arid they are uqijiiimniis in
^he decision that, as the church gave
its consent to their joining the order,
it is not right that tpey should now In-
called upon to leave it. They are encouraged in this decision liy the fact
that the clergy are not heartily supporting the decree, Information re
'reived here is to the effect that! the
question af rescinding the decree js
now helng considered by the Pope.
/The. awry is that the particular opposi-

Knights were displeased witii tiie

that this is such a strongly supported

CLEVELAND AND SILVER..
The following letter was addressed to
President Cleveland by Senator Stewart, also commenting on ihe President's
letter to the Chicago Committee, In
it the President, is asked to explain the
meaning of "honest money," and it
will he seen the senator is very explicit
jn this demand, and hjs criticism of lbe
President's views and actions in regard to the financial situation is a
scathing one.   He says:
"You letter addressed to the Chicago committee is timely. The country looks lo you as tlie great champion
nf the present condition of the country. The policy for which you have
labored so long and so persistently lias
lieen established and Hie United State
is reduced to the sin-inking volume of
i ..   ,. ,i hi      it;.i
gold.
"You say: .'What is now more
needed than anything is a plain and
?unple presentation of tlie argument in
. avor of sound money.' Tlie truth of
this proposition cannot be denied. If
there is any argument in favor of tlie
sound money policy which you have
adopted and forced upon the country
It should be presented. You have
urged upon the country in all your
public utterances for tlie lust ten years
the necessity for sound money,
" You say; ' In this time of misfortune and depression, the people are
willing to listen to any remedy for
their unfortunate condition,' It is
gratifying to know that you  have
learned that it is a time of misfortune
and depression, and that you know
that' sound money' is the remedy, If
yon will kindly tell the people what
sound money is they would understand
the remedy you propose and could
form their own opinions us to its probable efficiency.
" In your letter to Governor Norton,
of September 17, 180.1, yon said: 'I
want, good, sound, staple money, and a
condition of confidence that will keep
it iu use. I am therefore opposed to
the free and unlimited coinage of silver
by this country alone und .independently, and I am in favor of the timely
and the unconditional repeal of the
radical change that Mr. Sherman and
your associates, in co-operation with
what you term the 'forces of safe cur.
reiicy,' have made? You have disre
garded not only the teachings of the
fathers of the republic, but you have
reversed the Usages apd customs of the
civilized world, which existed for thousands of years previous to 1873. You
have destroyed one-half of tbe world's
metallic money and enhanced the other
half fully 10Q per cent.
"You now call upon the Democrats
of Illinois to present a 'plain and
simple argument' which will satisfy
Ihe people that a financial policy which
makes them miserable is.' sound money
and a safe currency,' If you know
such an argument why do you not produce it ? You are doing what no other
president lias had the coinage to do
since tlie crime of 187.". None of your
predecessors since that deplorable
event have dared to advise a combination of gold monometallism against the
constitutional rights nf Lbe American
people to have coined at the mints both
gold and silver, and thereby enjoy a
sufficient supply of money for Hie ultimate payments of (lie business of the
country, sustain enterprise anil furnish employment for labor."
A PLEASANT PRESCRIPTION,
The man who discovered the microbe
of the kiss Is a benefactor of the human
race and deserves to live forever. It
fell to the lot of A. I'l. Btidger, a physician living in England, to discover
the health-giving influence of kissing.
Tbe habit aids In the dissemination of
microbes that help digestion, and are
consequently conducive to health, In
life this good physician should be the
most popular man in the world, and
should he die, tlie whole anti-dyspeptic
and anti-bilious portion of the human
race ought to make it compulsory upon
themselves to build him a monument
that would reach to the sky, and also
see that his grave is kept green for
ever.
purchasing clause of the so-called Sherman law. I confess I am astonished at
opposition in the Senate to such
prompt action as would relieve the
present unfortunate situation.'
! "The opposition iu llie Senate at
)vhicli you were astonished was overcome, and the prompt action wliieli
you deolar'ejj would help the unfortunate situation was obtained' more than
eighteen months ago, and then the
| present unfortunate situation' to
which you alluded, has continued, and
|s now 'this time of misfortune and depression.' Your confident prediction
that the repeal of llie Sherman aet.
would relieve the 'unfortunate situation' rallied to your'support the com-
[Hernial press, tlie f'puids of trade
and the dealers in mines and bonds,
and enabled you, willi tlie power and
patronage of your great office, to over-
Conic the opposition iii Hie Senate,
whicli astonished you. The people
naturally look to you for an explanation why the repeal nf the purchasing
clause of Hie Sherman act did not io
Jieve the ' unfoi-lunalesitual.ion.' Why
do you not press the argument and
say what' sound money' is?
" Whatever may happen, you are entitled to thu gratitude of Hie American people Car yon? bold and open ud
vocitcy of'the combination of gold
monometallism against Hie doctrine of
our Secretary of the Treasury, of the
I coinage of both gold and silver upon
terms of exact equality.' Your recent
sale of $(J2,(jp(l,(0l of bonds to the Rothschild's syndicate for $0,1,10,000 less than
their market value to obtain gold lo
maintain gold monometallism, is some
evidence of your familiarity witli Hie
'forces of safe currency,' but your
assertion that tlie opposing forces are
those of silver monometallism shows
t atyoij do not understand the position of the liinietallists or knowingly
Misrepresent llieir position.

Advantages of Capital,
There is much to be said in favor of
mining by large corporations with an
abundance of capital. Such ronipatiys
can, in effect, apply the well-tried principles of insurance to Hie business of
prospecting for and developing mines.
Suppose, for Instance, n company operates six mini's; if the properties have
lieen selected with due care at least a
portion of them will always be ina
paying condition, and their profits will
generally pay for necessary development in other mines and still leaves a
surplus from which to pay dividends,
Given a large corporation witli able
management and success may frequently be achieved where a number
of individuals, with au equal aggregate capital, lint working separately,
would most or all of them fail.
Tlie man who lias "all bis eggs in one
basket" is liable to lose courage and
abandon un undertaking at some crisis
when success seems almost at hand,
hut where failure, always possible,
would completely ruin him.
It would probably be much better for
the industry of mining if the "promoter" were a little less conspicuous,
and the capital stock of mining companies could he brought to represent
cash in hand rather than glittering
possibilities, There is too glaring a discrepancy between a capitalization of
one or more millions of dollars and an
insignificant looking prospect hole,
whicli lacks even the security of a government patent, There are chances in
mining, as well as in trade, niunui'iic-
1m ing and agriculture, but such huzza ids can be kept at the minimum by
experience nnd judgment and practically obliterated by the employment of
adequate capital. Nor would this iu
any way prove a detriment to the
poor man," for, except in Hie rarest
of instances, no poor man can develop
amine without assistance, and large
aggregations of capital devoted to mining would Insure a sale for (-very really
valuable prospect.

Accurate Mine Maps a Necessity.
We do not think the importance of
accurate mine maps is recognized as
fully as it should be, An incorr
map is worse than none at all. It Is
misleading, and may be the cause of
accidents that, even if they do not cost
valuable lives, cost lbe operator indefinitely more money than good maps
would have cost. And If a mining
manager acts on the "penny wise,
pound foolish" policy of employing
the cheapest mon ho can find to make
bis surveys and const;net. bis maps, lie
is primarily In Manna It matters not
what, mineral is being mined, a good
map of tbe mine is a necessity, and
progressive mine managers realize Ihis.
Approximate mine surveys are well
enough ill eases whore lliere is not
much depending on the accuracy of
llie work, but they should never be
placed ou record on the general mine
map. Large mining companies generally realize the importance of accurate
mine maps, This realization lias been
emphasized by Hie expense and dangers they frequently Incur where llieir
nsw workings approach old workings
abandoned by former operators and
whose location can only be guessed at
by local tradition and a few surface indications, Tlie finest maps in the
world are made by American engineers,
but of 'course Ibey do not all rank
alike,-,.-], k hi. Hi-porter,
