(Continued from last week.)
'��� What is your opinion of the milling laws of the colony? Are they
favorable to the progress of the industry ?"
"The mining laws of this country,
as of others, are not perfect. Experience will lead to amendments, but,
taking one thing with another, there
is very little to complain of. The
Provincial Government is doing all it
can to build np tlie great industry ���
mining and in its efforts tlie forward
steps towards tho right direction are
appreciated. The officials are reasonable nnd desirous of doing what is best
for tlie country generally."
" Now, what are the prospects of
silver mining in the colony?"
" No country in the world hns better
prospects so fur ns silver lend mining
is concerned. The whole of the Kootenay county, enst, west, north, and
sj'.itb, is full of galena. Many big
mines nre producing lar-.e quantities of
ore at the present moment, und on
account of the exceedingly high percentage of lead and silver, the depression in tho price of the white metal,
although detrimental, will not materially hinder our progress, nnd if President Cleveland socceels in hiking off
the import duly 011 loud, which
amounts to 1J cents per lb., this advantage will nearly compensate for the
drop in silver values. It nuiy lie interesting to statu lhat tny assnv on the
ores sent by the British Columbian
Government to tlie Chicago World's
Fair, averaged as follows : -
West Ko it
Railway touch tho country ?"
"Owing to tlio enterprise of this
groat railway company many mining
sections hitherto inaccessible are now
easily accessible. Other railway companies are throwing out their brunches
so that, combining these advantages
and the richness of the province in
minerals, I firmly believe that British
Columbia's fulure is ussurod, and lie
who at the right moment takes a share
in the progressive movement will undoubtedly lie handsomely repaid. The
climate is excellent, living not excessively high, and for commercial purposes the railway and steamboat connection with the mother country is
very advantageous. We are also in
touch with China and Japan, by means
of the steamboats of tlie Canadian
Pacific Railway Company, with those
of the Huddurt line with Australia,

Editor GOI.llEN EtlA :
Slit,���As I have lieen asked to refute
the criticisms of "Kootenay Eust" on
my speech on Biinctaiism, I usk for
space to do so and I will be as b.-ief as
possible under the circumstances. Any
student of monetary science can at
once detect thnt "Kootenay East"
does uot thoroughly understand his
subject. He has adopted a few shibboleths of gold iiiononietalists and he
is not a win e that tiie,-. have already
lieen proved to be fallacious by many
experts in monetary science.
" Kootenay East" sii) s:
"The Colonel's groat trouble is the
'scarcity of gold'and the ���unstable
foundations of credit.' I was under
the impression thnt the millions of
coM in the Banks of England and
France were nt the cull of anybody
presenting bunk note- : and togei liese
nytis ii was oi'ly necessary to sell
"Only sI'Icessarv to sell (sosie-
rillNu!'' The simplicity of this ns
portion is highly amusing. How, I
would as!., i.-. the "something to sell"
to be obtained ? .Manifestly by labour
atone. tt is labour which first produces tliu capital whicli is afterwards
lo act as ils coadjutor. Capital is only
stored up labour, therefore in order to
obtain "soinetliirg to sell" a man
must labour for it, und if gold - the
medium of exchange and the measure
of value is dear, tin; mini will have to
give more labour for it than he would
have 10 give it it were cheaper. Con-
seqitently those who hold uold in
enormous amounts the Mammon
Gods cun demand more from labour
when gob. is dear than they can when I
gold is cheap. Under gold nioiioiiicliil- j
ism 11 man has to buy gold with his
labour in order to exchange it for the
necessaries of life, while under bimetalism a man cun buy both gold and
silver for the same purpose and the
two metals ure linked together at a
fixed rate Taking all the civilized
countries together, we- find that the
amount t f  gold in   sterling is about
ing super-abundant.
"Kootenay East" goes on to say
with regard to myself:
"Ho tells us that ihe gold in the
world is ��190,000,100 sterling. This
is about the amount of Great Britain's
national debt, and according to the
Colonel's theory of ' fiduciary paper'
this gigantic indebtedness should bo
represented in coin, and if so it would
absorb ull the existing precious metal.
What are tlio facts : There is not a
shilling directly in reserve, ami yet tho
three per cent Consols usually stand
about par, backed us they are by all
the wealth of the country both on land
and sea. Would Col. Baker ius'ance
Consols as based upon an ��� unstable
foundation of credit V" "
Cun "Kootenay East" pretend for
one moment that fiduciary paper should
not be based upon 1111 adequate supply
of tlie precious metals - namely measure of value and uTodium ol excliiiugt-
��� as a reserve?
What does Lord Overstone say on
this subject aud I conclude that
"Kootenay Eust" will accept that
eminent bunker as an authority :
" I consider the money of the country to bo the foundation and the bills
of exchange to be the superstructure
raised upon it."
T..ke tho Loudon Bunk clearing
house as an example. There are many
billions sterling of cheque transactions
which pass through the clearing house
every year, without a coin cui-rint���
but why? Simply upon FAITH that
each bank concerned is able to pay
gold for each cheque if called upon to
do so. Take away that faith, doubt
tbe solvency ot any particular bank
and there would beugiit in the inn-
chine at once. The questionable
cheques would not exchange lor others.
But in what does the solvency oi a
bank consist ? Iu its power to pny

"1 am very sorry, Mr. Wilson, 1 know
j-ou have done your best, hut there have
been so many complaints of late that wo
have decided ii best to make a change Of
course you will stuj in tho employ ul iho
company it you cure to." ���
it was the superintendent oi ihe great
electrical works who was speaking���n mail
who showed lu speech ami manner that be
was horn to rule, whose dignity was so
manly that ono instinctively respected him
even though he did not know htm.
He was speaking to one of his foremen ���
Henry Wilson���a man brought up in tho
works almost���a man who knew all tho
workings of the place from the way a
joint wus soldered to the most difficult test-
lug, and yet he was now to lose his place,
lie had held it for live years. He had married llattie Ijiino on tbe surety of a good
salary. He hail bought his little home on
Best street, knowing he could save euougb
iu a few years to pay for it.
But ever since he married llattie Ijane
there had been trouble between himself
und his nearest associate in the works,
James Conley. It bud been a question iu
the minds of many whicli of the two men
Huttiewould marry. Womanlike, she chose
the one her friends least expected her to
choose, the poorer, the homelier of the two.
The trouble be and James Conley bud was
not of Henry Wilson's making Conley
was always quietly doing something to
prejudice others against Wilson. Little
tales were exaggerated nml carried to the superintendent, little underhand things done
to injure him. And now tbe end hud come,
and he was to be ousted from his place,
gome local work hod been done under Wilson's direction. Conley hud inspected it
and found that there had been serious oversights, so he reported to the superintendent,
nnd the superintendent had sent Wilson to
do the work over again, and when Wilson
said tbe work had been tampered with the
superintendent simply looked grave and
said nothing.
"One of the trouole men was killed last
week," tbe superintendent said, "and hereafter you will do his work. The wages, ol
course, will be smaller than you have been
So when Henry Wilson walked up Best
street to his little home that afternoon he
carried a heavy heart and a face that told
of deep humiliation and bitter disappointment.
"We were getting along so well,'' he
said to Hattie, "aud I thought 1 could
make the Inst payment on the place this
year, and now"��� He did not say any
more, but his teeth shut together like the
jaws of a vise, aud the set look ou his face
grew harder.
Is tliere one woman in ten thousand who
would not have done just as Hattie did ?
She saw and appreciated his feelings, and
with a smile such as only a invim* woman
can wear she took Ms face in ber hands, aud
looking into his eyes said:
"Never mind, pet: we will get along all
right, und it will be better for you to nave
work ont. of doors.   Be brave and patient."
It takes much to make some men forgive,
and some of them never forget.
Morose and melancholy by tnrns, silent
and unnatural at all times, Henry Wilson
went about his work. Wherever there was
a report of trouble he was to lie found. Hattie would look after him mornings iw he
went out, and the tears would come to her
Then one day somethinc happened in the
great electrical works. Many things happen there, but this was something concerning only tbe two we know best there. The
switches had been turned oft* in the lamp
testing department, nf which Mr. Conley
was now foreman, and he and his assistants were at lunch. Henry Wilson, coming
in from outside work, went into the room
for something he wanted. There was no
one tliere. He stnid lor a moment ami
then went out, meeting the occupants ot
the room coming back to work. Conley
had been testing an unsatisfactory lamp
and bad left it on the floor until bis return.
Now be attempted to bang it on the rack.
The lamp caught only one hook. He
reached for tbe other witb his left hand,
still holding the other with his right anil
forming a circuit tlin ;t-*h his body. .Some
ono had turned on the switch, cud the ruck
was "alive."
What seemed to him *n ago went by as
the alternating current ran through bis
body; bis head felt as if it was bursting; his
neck was swelling nnd choking him. He
tried to cry out, uut could Hit. Then be
lostcoiisciousuesB and fell hoc Iti* an i. Some
one saw bim sway, realised the situation
and turned tbe switch. Shun he fell to the
floor like a log.
There was great common m that floor,
the ambulance was calli id, tin usual iluugs
iu such caws iTone,(ind must men .vho
work about the fatal "juice" understand
what todo iu cos*-.-* of emergency,
Henry Wilson saw ll.*. men carrying 11.
nnin out to in- nuilitiluin-v-. o pressed forward with the others to see what was tho
matter. His fact* did not change or soften
wheu hesuw Conley lying apiiiircntly lifeless. He simply picked up bis tools uud
went about bis work.
That afternoon as he was working in tbe
lower part of the city nieiullug wires after
a lire a messenger came (or him from the
works, and he went up to tlie superintendent's office, where he was confronted witb
the accusation that he had gone iuto the
resting room while tbo men were absent
and had turned on tire switch, knowing
that Mr. Conley would probubly be tbe
first one to suiter from touching the lamps.
"1 was iu the room while tbe men were
at lunch. 1 went tliere lor some fixtures
I wauted, aud 1 passed tbem on tbe stairs
when 1 came out. I did not touch anything
in the room."
It was a simple statement, boldly made,
"iMr. Conley is still ���mco-mdous,'" the
superintendent continued, "and until such
time as we know the result of the injury he
has received we deem it best to place you
under arrest. Of course we know that you
two have had much trouble in the past."
It was three days before Conley wus able
to speak, and then he only eouHrraed what
was already known���that the current was
on when it should have been off.
"It will go hard witb Wilson," was the
word all around the shop, but un the third
day a boy with a white face and trembling
voice came into the superintendent's eUlce
and asked (p** a word with the chief.
rte leaned his elbow on tne corner ot ine
desk and began iu a voice that wavered at
first nml then grew stronger as he went ou:
"Mr. Smith, 1 am one of the students. 1 um
in the winding gung now. I wanted to
speak to von about Mr. Cuuley'stteoident."
"Well, what Is ttr"
"1 liiil it."
"V hat did yni do?"
"1 turned tliu switch while the men were
nt lunch. 1 went up to nee the photographer whose olllce is adjoining. He wasn't
111, so I went into the testitig room. The
lamps were ull off tlie nick. 1 put one on to
see what sort of ligut it gave, and before I
came away I must have turned on the
switch again.   I didn't mean any harm."
"And why didn't you tell of this the other day wheu yuu kuew Mr. Wilson was arrested?"
"1 was afraid."   The hoy hung his head.
"Very well, we will nee about it."
When Wilson, a free man, came into the
superintendent's oliiee iu response to u message, the superintendent arose from his
chair aud in his characteristic way said:
"Mr. Wilson, 1 liud we have done you a
great in justice. 1 want to ask your purdou
tor the great wrong we have done you,"
and held uut his baud. "You will resume
your old work tomorrow, Mr. Wilsou. 1
think everything will go all right after
this. We may have lieen somewhat hasty
in removing you."���Kuthenue Hurtmuu in

It is trtip, a-i " Kootonay East " snys
that British Consols usually stand at
par although tliere is not a shilling
directly in reserve, but why? Becnuse
it is known that there are millions in
gold, indirectly in reserve, to meet
them if required. They are in thu
position of bunk cheques, there is faith
in the gold at the back of them.
Throw the slightest doubt upon
England's solvency nnd Consols would
tumbledown headlong. Is "Kootenay East" aware that British Consols
have beon down to -17?
I will quote Mr. Gsschen in support
of my stut. ment that the increase in
tho volume of trade, as indicated by
t he clearing houses, causes an increased
demand for gold. He savs : " Wishing to make every allowance for the
fact that as little gold is used as it is
possible to use, and thnt every economy in its nse is studied by bankers in
England and elsewhere. I certainly
do share the opinion that theocono
mies effected do not counterbalance tlie
strain put upon gold cither by the increased demand ot the population for
pocket money or for the liquidating ot
the enormously increased balance of
transactions both of this country
(England) and of others."
" Kootenay Kust" goes on  to say:
" As the production of gold is steadi
ly increasing at the rate of from SlfO
at li>O.COO,000 a year, nnd ns ii is not
suitable us an article of food and is in
many it her waysindistriietible, il may
lieex|-ected to fultil ils legitimate function of serving as the small cliiiuge
required in the settlement of the differences in trade between iiut'ons."
" Kootenay East " seems to be very
confused in this passage und to be
mixing np silver witli gold.
Where does he obtain his figures as
to the increase in the production of
gold ? If he will turn to Soetbeer, who

It linn been proved by experience
tliut ..nder bimetalism the lliictuiiliuns
in value of tbe precious metals arc very
small indeed, under International Bimetalism they would lie still smaller,
hence the advantage to the borrower.
Witli regard to the rest, of ''Kootenay East's" criticisms, if he cannot
realize so patent a fact that the low
price of silver has told with fatal
effect upon the fanner it would be useless for me to attempt to argue with
him on that point. It is acknowledged
by tiie merest tyro in monetary science.
I repent that the demonetization of
silver gives rise to the appreciation of
gold. The appreciation of gold gives
increased power to the holders of it,
because it is the medium of exchange
and measure of value. Consequently
tlie move gold a man holds the greater
his power becomes and in tlie case of
14 Mammon Gods" it reaches the point
of a despotism of wealth. The appreciation of gold means falling prices and
with fulling prices the capitalist will
not invest in any enterprise because he
knows that his Becurity would be depreciated every day. Under International Bimetulisni there would be more
money or medium of exchange available, there would Le little or no '���'itc-
tualiou in tbe value cf the medium of
exchange there would be belter security
fol- the investment of capital uud enterprise would flourish.
