(Continued from last week.)
K, Tiiis fixity of value between gold
and silver being world-wide, would be
of enormous benefit iu our trade with
silver using countries, which include
half the world's population. They
reckon in silver coin, wo reckon in
gold, and until we restore bimetallism
or they adopt a gold standard we never
can besure how many foreign silver
coins will be equal iu value to our gold
sovereign. S.uce bimetallism was
ubolishel in 187'), the rate has been
constantly changing, sometimes one or
iwo per cent, iu a day, causing great
embarrassment in our trade with those
countries and increasing India's treasury payments to j3 igland us reckoned
iu rupees.
!). For reasons h 'raafter explained,
it is not proposed to re-establish bimetallism unless a number of nations
join therein. One important, point in
their agreement would bu that all
should adopt the same legal rate (ratio)
between gold and silver, because, if u
gold coin could be exchanged for a
heavier weight of silver coins iu one
country than in another, gold would
hu sent there to buy up the heavy
silver coins. This very mistake was
made at the English Mint before tlie
year 1 i'.IS, so gold came from ol her
countries to buy up the heavy Eugl.sh
silver coins in spite of Sir Isaac Newton's timcliing to the contrary people
ignorantly supposed that ihe gold
camo of itself through greater suitability, consequently it wae pronounced to
be the tiltest for coinage and was decreed, in 1811, to be alone fit for unlimited coinage, silver Iieing banished,
except as above state 1, the small quail-
tities occasionally coined for payments
under forty sbilliugs.
10. Must people will be surprised to
hear that bimetallism was iu force for
many centuries, not only in England,
hut generally speaking throughout the
world; also that it succeeded, just, iu
so far as Ihe different nations happened to adopt soiuothllig like one and the
same rule between gold and silver
They were Ignorant of this necessary
principle so clearly stated by Sir Isaac
Newton. In America tlio United
States bad bimetallism till the Civil
War, when they abandoned all coinage
and adopted paper money, after which,
iu 187:1, they returned to coin, making
gold their standard nnd limiting the
coinage and legal tender of sliver, as
England does. They have not yet
returiled to bimetallic free coinage,
though thoy have groatly Increased
their silver coinnge and have made it
legal for nil payments. Iu Europe, ns
above   stilted, the  group of  nations
forming the Latin Union, in 18.15, "average than they had been ii years
agreed on strict, uell regulated hi-." before, In Ireland the chango was
nietullisui, which hud been commenced '-still greater, and probably unequalled
by France  about the year  1800, and  ''in so short a time iu tlie annuls of
they maintained it with the greatest
benefit lo themselves and the whole
world till 1K7,!. Their mints woie
practically open to the world. When
England, for instance, had superfluous
"history. Wages of country labour
" rose from 4 1. a day to Is. (id. or 2s. ;
"convicted crime sank nearly a half;
"and the increased growth of cereal
"crops under the  genial   influences of
silver, she got rid of it by  sending it | " these advanced  prices was for some
'years ns rapid ns its previous decline
���since 1841 had been. At the same
; time, decisive evidence was afforded
-that, all this sudden burst of prosper-
' ity was tho result of the expanded
currency, and by no means of free
'trade, in the fact that it did not
' appear till the gold d's-overies came
��� into operation ; and then it was fully
'as great iu tho protected as iu the
'free trade States."
(To be Continued.)
to France for coinage, and using those
silver coins in Franc, to buy gold at
the bimetallic, rate. Similarly, wheu
gold was abundant after the Australian
discoveries, it was sent to France for
coinage, and silver being scarce relatively to gold, was bought in Franco
with the proceeds.
11. France and the other bimetallic
nations, however, did not care to continue iu this way the coinage of gold
and silver, (or the convenience of other
nations too sellisb to join her in the
Union, so they restricted the free coinage of silver Iu 1838. The Immediate
cause was the adoption of a gold coinage by Germany and her rejection of
s.lver, which was .thus thrown upon
the French Mint in immense quantity.
From that day commenced the fall of
prices, and commercial depression iu
���ill rs -.ds which, like
rejected silver. These consequences
were predicted ,-t the time by Mr.
Ernest Seyil, a far seeing political
economist, iu tho following remarkable words: -
"Ir, is a great mistake to suppose
���' that the adoutioii of the gold vultiii.-
"tion by other States besides England
���' will be liunellohil. It will only lead
���' to the destruction oi the monetary
"equilibrium hitherto existing, aud
"cause a fall in tlie value of silver,
" from which England's trade and the
" Indian silver valuation will suffer
" more than all other interests, grevi-
"ousus the general decline of pros-
���- per.:.> all over tho world will be.
"Tiie strong doctriniiriaiiisin existing
" in England us regards the gold vul-
" nation, is so blind that whun the
"time of depress.ou sets in there will
** be this special feature : The ecoiiomi-
"cal authorities of the country will
���' refuse to listen to the cause here
" foreshadowe'.; every possible attempt
������will lie made to prove that the decline
������of commerce is due to all sorts of
"causes and irreconcilable matters,;
���' the workman and his strikes-will be
"the first convenient target; then
���'speculating and over-trading, will
" have their turn * ���*��� *
"many other allegations will be made,
���' totally irrelevant to the real issue,
" but satisfactory to the moralising
���'tendency of financial writers. The
���'great danger of the tune will then be
"that, among nil this confusion und
������strife, England's supremacy in com"
" nierco and manufactures may go
���' backwards to au extent which can-
������ not bo redressed, when the real
"cause becomes recognised aud the
"natural remedy is applied."
12. As au instance of tho prosperity
which has always resulted from an
increase of metallic money, we may
consider what followed the Australian
gold discoveries. I shall quote the
historian Alison, who describes the
previous distress and sulwequent prosperity as follows 1 ���
"The annual supply of gold and
"silver for the use of the globe was,
"by these discoveries, suddenly In-
"creased from an average of ,l'10,000,-
'���000 to one of ��l)5,CC0,CC0.      ���
Cluii. Herbert Raya that Conniiug-lit is
Not Cowardly.
Ottawa, Sept. 2!).-The scandalous
dispatch which has reached the Canadian press through New York aources
attributing cowardice to the Duke of
Coniiaiigbt at the battle of Tel-el-kebir
'.iigliiinl, have Iis strongly condemned here. The attention of General Herbert was called
to il '..-day by a Free Press correspondent. - hen the general's honest indignation strongly asserted itself. General Herbert was nt the battle in
,|ui's*iou a member of the stuff of His
Royal Highness, the Dike of Con-
naught. He characterizes the cablegram as a blackguardly production.
Said he, sneaking of the battle, "I can
state positively that the arrangements
for iho formation and attack weie
made d..ys before hand. The position
of the guards was not dictated by the
fact that the Duke of Couiianght was
ill command ; it would lime been the
same in any case. The guards held
precisely the *:iime position as that
which it occupied at the battle of
Alma. No doubt for tactical reasons
it was the correct situation for them
to be placed ill. One thing I can say
iu regard to the Duke of Coiiiiniight, is
that his only fault while au action is
iu progress as far as I could see, was
his disposition to expose himself unnecessarily. He was away ahead of
his brigade the whole time, and it is
significant that his bugler wss shot at
his side. Tne duke himself was in
the hottest or the lire the whole time."
Referring to that portion of the
press dispatch which states that
shortly before the battle conimenceit
Lord Woli'sly received a message from
England, presumably from a high personage, as a result of which the formation wns changed nnd the guards
were relegated to the rear, the general
asked: " How could any newspaper
correspondent know that Gen, Wolesly
receive i any such information as that
which is implied. Ou the face of it
the whole dispatch contradicts itself.
The man who penned the cablegram
did so for the purpose of catering to a
certain section of tbo community on
this continent, but the truth was not
in liiin at the time."

From   Samples Taken   From
(I,Inn (ruck  LciIkch.
Letters from Alberni received yesterday, state that assays made from
quartz taken from the tunnel in the
Golden Eagle, the discovery claim,
resulted in a return of $o 10 of.gold per
ton. Assays made at the Government
oliiee in Victoria from samples secured
by Mr. Ci'.nnichael ou his visit to the
mine, have given as high us $2,CC0 per
toil, Tho assay of rock from the ledge
located by Frank McQuillan at the
head of Hiwiitcbees Crook also give
large returns. Tliere is considerable
excitement iii Victoria over tlio discoveries, und many prospectors, professional and amateur, have left for
the field for the purpose of locating a
claim. There are several practical
mine owners and mining men in the
city nt present who havo seen the
various ore specimens in the posses-ion
of Mr. H. Saunders, and all pronounce
the ore to be remarkably good, and
say that it has every indication of
perniaueiic.v, the gold being distributed
through the rock. Nothing more definite has been learue I than the information obtained from Mr. Curu'iiuhuel's
visit, except the report from ... says
and various reports nuotil Frank McQuillan's find. He is said to be making
>e,oo(l pay by the primitive mortar and
pestle process. Mini-:; lue'u generally
concede thai 'here i ijood reason for
believing that.. rich gold qui rtz country has been discovered.
An old resident of Victoria stated
yesterday that the discovery oi rich
quartz and placer mines on Vancouver
Island wns predicted over thirty years
ago by S.r Roderick Murchisou, uu
eminent geological authority. He is
said to have stated to the colonial
governor, Col. Keuiiud,*, that the geological formation of Vancouver Island
indicated that gold was present uud'
that it sooner or later would be discovered although this would be re-
tardel by the luxuriant undergrowth.
The samples se.it in from China Greek
are exceedingly rich, and one taken
from the ledge 400 feet above the tunnel ou the Golden Eagle claim, is
thickly encrusted with gold. The
ledge ut this point is eight feet iu
The following is a letter on the
mines which appeared in tlio Nuuaiiuo
Free Press:
"Mr. Carmlchsel's late report on
China Creek gold mines, proves the
correctness of expert Phillip's report
on this part of the Island (see Phillip's
work on the Nor: Invest coast of America) issued after his visit in iho early
part of the seventies-the opinion has
long been held that heavy deposits of
auriferous quartz and placers existed
iu this direction. Mineral claims were
staked oil by Naiiaimo people, amongst
whom were tho late T. E. Peck, and
others well known here in the early
days. The distance of "Mount Saunders" is about inn ben line fifteen
miles west by north from the head of
Xanniiiio lakes, which latter are twelve
miles southwest by west from Naiiaimo
making the whole distance about
twenty-six miles to twenty-eight miles
from Nanniino via the lakes. The
trend of the ludo north northeast by
south southwest, will bring the lode by
continuance, a trifle west of Mount
Cosmos, through the lake district and
near the lakes, if the lakes arc
correctly located on our maps. This
will show that a continuance of the
present lake trail for ten miles along
the side hills would bring the veins
within a short distance comparatively
of Nanniino. This mineral belt reaches
down for miles towards the Uke region
from Mount Spencer.
" The route is favorable for a good
wagon road branching from the Douglas district road westerly. The only
difficulty has been in passing the
northern side of Naiiaimo hike. The
mineral belt  stretches from the cast
coast through Cameron district, passing Mounts Douglas and Spencer to the
Nitinnt and Gordon rivers. Ou tho
latter creek quite a lot of Chinamen,
are at work washing gravel. Tho
assay, so far, from China creek quartz
has been very good, ranging from a
few dollars to thousands of dollars per
ton. This range is believed by many
old C ilii'oriiiiiiis to he a continuity of
the auriferous belts of that st..te. A
careful study of the belt will strongly
sustain those views, coupled with tho
presence of telluroids in both localities.
The belt of laud lying between Mount
Spencer and Mount Cormos, head of
Naiiaimo bikes, deserves iho careful
attention of practical prospectors. If
the provincial residents don't look to it
au influx of foreigners will. The veins
and cross-veins have already shown
proof of fairly good returns to remarkably rich deposits. The introduction
of machinery for thu extraction of tho
gold will soon be a reality, aud the
hum of ludlts'.ry awake the echoes of
the bills and vales, Mines lire not

Without labia-. However there ia little
doubt, that, though they may not nniko

will continue productive far lunger."���

Chicago, Sept. 28. ���After shooting
and severely wounding three men, Jus.
McGrath, u notorious Westside character, was shot twice and killed instantly by the Maxwell street polico
officers this afternoon. Too injured
arc: Officer Mitchell Fleming, of tlio
Maxwell street station, shot in the
calf of the leg; Thomas Beeshaiu, shot
through the head by McGrath, will die.
Edward Jackson was shot in the nose.
The first shooting was the result of a
quarrel between McGrath and Bceshain.
The latter was taken to the hospital
and only remained conscious long
enough to give the name of his assailant. Officers Fleming and Butler
found McGrath ou Canal street and
accosted him. McGrath turned with
an oath and Hied point blank at Officer
Butler's head. The bullet went wide
of the murk and struck Edward Jackson, who was walking ou the opposite
side of the street, ou t he bridge of the
nose, breaking the bone. McGrath
again levelled his revolver and discharged it at Officer Fleming. As ho
fired the second shot, both of the officers discharged their weapons at him.
The two bullet's fired from the officers'
weapons look effect, one of them passing llnoiigh tho despcrndoe's heart,
while the other found lodging under
tho right arm-pit. McGrath has a
brother in Joliet.

Attempt:*.I Train  Wreeiiln'*'.
Halifax. N.S., Oct. il.-A fiendish
attempt was made at train wrecking
lace yesterday morning on the intercolonial road near Truro. Some persons opened a switch, causing an en-
giuo to dash off the track in the
vicinity of it high embankment. The
locomotive tumbled on its .side. The
engineer and fireman had an exceedingly close escape from death. It was a
miracle that the entire train did not go
over tho embankment. An examination of the switch showed that tlie
lock had been smashed open. Suspicion rests on certain persons and an
arrest may soon follow. The spot
where the attempt was made is only a
short distance from the place where a
sleeper was placed on tbo truck some
weeks ago and also where the train
was fired at by unknown men.
