London, June 7���The Digger's News
a South African paper, says that a
man named Gleeson, who was a sergeant iu the British army during the
Indian mutiny, who died last December, confessed to his son-in-law, a Mr.
Hughes, at Victoria, in the Transvaal,
.hat he murdered the king of Oude and
.villi two others stole the crown jewels
mil buried them. The others were
killed during the war, only after the
regiment was ordered away and the
town bunded back to the enemy, so
there was no time to recover the
jewels. Hughes is now trying to
recover the jewels. One diamond in
the lot is supposed to bo a fellow stoue
of the famous Kohinoor, now in the
possession of Queen Victoria.

The Spokane Review contains the
following summary of tin; reportof the
..cting director of the United States
mint, which will be of interest to miners generally : ���
"The acting director of tlie mint has
made au interesting compilation of the
gold an 1 silver production of the world
since the discovery of America. The
total value of the gold product for the
400 years, since 140.1 has been ftJ,2C4t-
3011,000, while the value of the silver
product has been 89,7si��,072,500. The
coining values are given as being nearly
constant, and a more convenient method of comparison than the fluctuating
market value of silver iu recent years.
While tho values of gold ami silver
produced are not so very far apart, the
quantities are iu the ratio of 0 to Uo,
owing to the much greater val.,0 of au
ounce of gold than an ounce of silver.
Tlie exact figures for tlio 400 years, as
nearly as can be estimated, are 3117,11)1-

The Canadian Trade Review has an
article commenting; ou a remark by the
Nelson Tribune that the Kootenay
Lake country is being hurt more b.i
the ill-advised booming of a lot of uu
regenerated liars than it is by a backward spring. It also refers to -'The
Gold Nugget Mining Company, of
Duncan River," which is described by
another local paper as a pure fake and
got up to swindle. To this it adds ;
"This is rather startling news from
the Kootenay district, where we
thought everything was booming, but
wherever there are good mines, the liar
and swindler will come in. Wo warn
our readers against wild cat mines.but
wo also warn them not to abandon I
tin ir faith in Kootenay Bake mining I
because a few swindling operations
are discovered." Our contemporary is
perfectly right in what it says.    There
are, it is true, several fakes  that  are
tieing wol'Kou iur tho benefit of the unwary ; but tor all that tlio Kootenay
is a wondeiiul niiiuug country, and
will pay me liberal embarkation of
capital and energy.���Coiuiueroial.
