Mr. F. W. Ward, of Melbourne, one
of the promoters of the new steamship
line botween Vancouver and Australia,
and whose present visit to this country
is in the interest of that line, wus seen
yesterday morning at thu Mauitobs us
he was leaving for the west ou his
homeward journey hy a Free Press
representative, who was accorded a
few minute's conversation.
1:1 answer to enquiries Mr. Ward
said that his mission bud been ot a
very encouraging nature, and everything hokel promising for the success spotted his man soon afte
of tho enterprise. The Mioweru, the
boat next to leave Vancouver, was
taking 300 tons of general merchandise
from eastern manufacturers, including
a large consignment of agricultural
machinery 11 printing paper alone.
he thought a (urge trade might ht
established. The materials for making
paper iu Canada were in abundance,
and it would be the fault of the Canadian manufacturers themselves if a
large trade was not establishel. His
own paper purchased an enormous
quantity each year, and it was simply
a question of price, combined with
quality, and ho saw no reaso 1 why
the Canadian manufacturers co ild not
outbid all otbor competitors. The
prospects for a lnnse reciprocal trade
between the two countries were very
encouraging.
As to the steamship line itself Mr.
Ward said if the trade warranted the
expenditure, at the end of the present
agreement, it was proposed to place an
extra steamer on the route of even
linger dimensions, though the present
boat; were line vessels; this would
allow of a bout being dispatched each
wnv every three weeks instead of
monthly as at present.
While down east lie had sought to
impress upon the authorities of the
C.P.R. the necessity of making a bid
for the largo Australian mail, and he
hoped yet to see this an accomplished
fact.
"Oh, by the way," said Mr. Ward,
"you might mention tlie fact that Mr.
Barton, attorney-general of New (South
Wales, and a prominent member of the
bar is 0:1 a visit to this country. He
is a firm friend to this undertaking,
and I have 110 doubt his lieiief in ihe
scheme will be strengthened by bis
present visit."

Owing to the recent discoveries of

Washington, Aug. 11. -The silver
fight began in earnest in the House today immediately alter tlie approval of
the journal. It was unexpected as the
fact was known that the silveritesand
the anti-silver men on the Democratic
side had reached an agreement as to
the method to b: pursued, and as to
the timo within which tiia donate
should be limited. The first, gun of
tlie battle wi.s fired by Mr. Wilson of
West Virginia. The missile was in
the shape of a bill for the repeal of the
purchasing clause of the Sherman act.
Then came forward Mr. Bland of Missouri, with a flug of truce under which .
after some little objection from the Republicans, an arrangement was affected
whereby a debate for fourteen days,
with night sessions if desired was provided for. votes to 1)3 taking on ratios
varying from l'l to 1 to 20 to 1, and
on nn amendment reviving tho Bland
act of 1H7S, the daily sessions of the
Ho"se to extend from 11 a in. too p.m.
Tlie silver men 0|iened their batteries
in the shape of a bill (offered as n substitute) for tlio free coinage of silver at
the present ratio. This started tie
battle. Mr. Riyner, of Maryland,
was the first champion sent out by
the anti-silver cohorts, and he
fought vigorously and well. He was
reinforced by Mr. Brown, of Indiana,
who in a brief speech advocated the
repeal of tho Sherman net, conditionally or unconditionally. Mr. Bland of
Missouri, was put forward to vet urn
the fusilado of argument anil eloquence
and he |ierforined his part without de.
trading from his reputation as leader
of the silver forces on the floor.

New York. Aug. 5.-At last, Wall
street begins to see light. During tho
week, new factors have entered into
situation of u character calculated to
afford a large nnd permanent relief
to suffering interests, The misfortunes
that havo befallen the Chicago speculators have proved a benefit to the
whole country. Their withholding of
grain and other kinds of produce from
the usual course of export for several
months was largely the cause of the
heavy drain of gold which caused the
existing troubles. The stringency
which they so largely helped to create
has at last compelled them to realize
at ruinous losses, and their products
aro going direct to Europe and forcing
back the gold they had driven out of
the ootid try, Already, some $12,000,-
000 of j;. Id is on its way hither and
stili larger amounts are expected to
foil. ,-. Tills is one of tho reliefs that
has appeared during the week. y
Another helpful condition has arisen
out of the heavy break in securities
last week. The chance it afforded of
buying our best securities at 20 to 30
per cent below their average price has
brought out a steady stream of buying
orders from Loudon and other Euro-
��� poan centres, and the amount exported,
though not definitely known, must
aggregate many millions in value.
This again has created a large amount
of bills on Europe and contributed to
the importation of gold. For tho
moment, this movement bus somewhat
abated, partly in consequence of some
recovery in the prices of securities and
partly owing to the Bank of England
having ou Thursday advanced its n le
of discount from 21 to ,'J per cent ; but
as all the symptoms show a decided
foreign, gain of confidence in our investments, and us that gain will bo
increased by the suspension of silver
purchases -which may now be regarded as all but assured -the probabilities
favor a revival of these shipments at
an early date.

Knoxville, Aug. 11.-It is .reported
that tho soldiers at Fort Anderson
went to Coal Creek last night, and
taking Dick Drummond from his
hoarding bouse hanged him to a trestle
at 5 o'clock this morning. Shortly
afterwards they went to another
boarding house and captured a miner
named Elkins and hanged him to the
same trestle. Driimnioiid aud Elkins
were the men arrested on suspicion of
ambushing and killing Private Luugb-
to** on Monday night. Later dispatches from Coal Creek say the
soldiers have arrested a miner named
Moore on suspicion of being an accomplice of Drummond. Unless lie cuu
prove his innocence he will be lynched.
This morning over 5,000 miners went
out on strike and .serious trouble is

Mr. J. F.. Askwith, of Ot'awa, the
well known railroad contractor, is registered  at the Queen's, and  Tuesday
morning a Tribune reporter bad a conversation with him in regard to the
mining properties in which he is interested In the Kootenay country.     The
property  is the well   known   Bob!
Burns mine, situated about 30 miles up
the Columbia river from (lolilcn, and is
about twelve miles back from tho river
being on tho Selkirk divide, and  near
��� the  source of the  mi.Idle fork of the
Spilllmachene    The mine is one of the
highest   iu North  America,   running
from (1,010 to S 000 feet above sea level.
For a loin; distance the  vein  can  be
traced with the eye up tbo face  of the
mountain, jus*, like a wagon truck, and
It is estimated that tea thousand'tons
of gold-bearing nunrfz can be qinirrld
here without sinking any shafts whatever.   The whole mine lies on the slant
of the  mountain, and  the  vein  ilips
8,000 feet in three-quarters of a mile.
A small prospecting plant was  erected
two years ago, and the results were so
emininently satisfactory that  a joint
stock company with a capital of SllOO,
000, is now being  formed  at   Victoria
to put up a large crushing  plant ami
work the mine in a  large  way.     Tlie
quartz averages $42 per ton from the
assays of sixteen specimens from different parts of tin mine, but the  yield
will  probably exceed this  when   the
vien is fully  worked.     From  present
appearance it is likely  the new company will be operating in about a year.

Mr. Holmes with his dog Boogum
arrived in Golden on Friday last about
4 p.m. after having walken from Field
a distance of ill miles.
On hearing that this gentium in was
in town wo naturally took the opportunity of having au interview, if one
would he pennittel, and casually introduced ourselves. Mr. Holmes, who
is a gentleman ol' average height and
medium build, was most ready to
enter into conversation and we gleaned
a few interesting items.
It appears that, socio time since, in
London, topio turned to the wonderful
walking powers of a certain American
lady nnd it was insinuated that uo
other man or woman could accomplish
sucii a feat. Mr. Holmes, however, thought they could and undertook to walk across the North American continent from Montreal to Vancouver, at an average of 20 miles a
day. This gentleman, as all know,
has so far oxceeled the average by 4
miles and hopes to reach Vancouver by
the 2!th of tho month. His limit is
Sept. 17tli. Wo ascertained that in
one instance o-jly was Boogum overtaxed and that was front Brandon to
Medicine Hat, where he bad to lie sent
on board the train. The great heat on
the prairie was detrimental to the
walker's time and so also was the
alkali water.
broke suddenly, but nothing further of
any consequence happened. She was
pushing No. 1.
We hear that the Donald Mining Co.
have sent out three more prospectors
into the Bush river district, making a
total now employed of six. It appears
that a little interest is being displayed
in milling around Doiutid, andwotrost
,tbe efforts of those concerned will be
handsomely rewarded.
A little time since, when the Hon.
T. M. Daly, Minister of the Interior,
was passing through Donald, he was
met at the depot by a deputation
which wus sent to lay before hiln
certain grievances as regards the
ownership of town lots and the right
of purchasing same out ami out, for a
sum agreed on at the time of tin: Dominion survey being made. The inhabitants claim that they have not
been well treated in tlie matter. Mr.
Duly promise.I to look into the question
and give a reply later on.
