AVe regret to notice the attitude of
the Canadian  press generally on the
silver question.   There is an amount
of prejudice aud ignorance of the subject displayed which is utterly unpardonable in the case ol men professing
to lead public opinion.   The Victoria
Daily Times says that in   adopting
free silver the United States would be
| leaning on a broken  reed.   Perhaps
the editor of our contemporary will
admit that such men as the late Professor   Walker,  Mr.  Lidderdule.   the
able governor of the Bank of England,j resources
people by the abundance of cheap
money. These money monopolists
then proposed to demonetise gold and
make silver the money medium. Why
don't they support that policy today?
Because tbey succeeded���by fraud,
corruption, aud bribery���in getting
Germany and America to demonetise
silver in 1873, It is an historic fact
that half a million of English geld was
.pent in the bribery of the American
legislature for the passage of the bill
demonetising silver. From that day
till new gold has appreciated In value,
till It is now worth over 60 per cent
more than in 1873, or in other words
it will buy that much more of the
produots of labor. That has been
evidenced in the fall of wages and of
the prices of agricultural products,
No man has done more than William
Bryan to teach the people the principles of money, and as sure as the
night follows the day the restoration
of silver coinage will come, Higher
wages, higher prices, better times,
cheaper money���these benefits will
surely follow iu the train of free silver.
Tha British Government has been
forced to meet the silverltes half way
by agreeing to reopen the Indian mints
to the coinage of silver, and to increase
its legal tender functions iu Great
Britain. To us in British Columbia
the remonetisntioii of silver is all-
important. Here is a country teeming
with silver ore. If the demonetisation
of silver continued for any length of
time, and the gold trust maintained
its monopoly, tho price of silver would
continue to go down until the result
would be to shut dowu our mines and
ruin tho development of our mineral
With the reinonetisntion of
We sympathise with the Fort Steele
people tn the scandalous attempt that
has been made by Col. Baker to damn
Fort Steele In order to boom hia pet
townsite of  Craubrook.    This  man
seems to hav* no sense of publio propriety, but would appear to be prepared
to set at defiance the interests entrusted
to him by his constituents If only he
may become rioh at their expense, and
at the expense oi the publio estate.
It seems to us that Col. Baker's connection  with  the  Canal  Flat  land
scheme, his dealings witb the Craubrook estate, the history of his connection  with  the  B.   C.   Southern
charter and other schemes of that ilk,
form ample grounds tor his Impeachment by the Provincial Parliament.
The trouble is that the present Parliament does not possess enough men of
grit to do their duty in this matter,
but the question should be made a test
one before the eleotors, who would,
we are sure, insist on the new Parliament adopting the course we suggest,
At all events Col. Baker should be
called upon to resign his position as a
Minister of the Crown pending such an
investigation.   His last act is utterly
unpardonable. Fort Steele is at present

it would be the duty of tue Government officers to take the matter in

A. J. Balfour, Messrs. H. R. Grenfell,
H. Hucks, Gibbs,   and  others  who
have held the   highest positions   in
financial circles,  and have mado the
silver question a special study,  ought
to know more about it than he, and
they aro  advocates   ot   thia  course.
An   eastern   paper   says:   ���'Occasionally a bimetallist or a  'rag money'
advocate crops up, only to be regarded
wiih passiug interest as somewhat of
a curiosity."   Yet we suppose there is
not a sane nuin in the Dominion who
would not admit that the "rag money"
of Canada forms the  soundest and
most convenient money system in the
world,   Sir  John  McDonald was  a
thorough believer in "rag money," and
he steadily  pursued his "rag money"
policy till he had established u system
that placed the banking institutions ol
Canada ou a rock that withstood the
most terrible financial storm.   If the
bimetallist is tho "curiosity" of which
our contempoiury speaks,  then such
curiosities abound, for the best financial men of Britain, America, France,
Germany, Austria, and other leading
nations are bimetallists.   Yet another
eastern editor has the following: "True

of   the   Legislature  for   the*  franchise,   and   that    congregation    of
antiquaries, calling itself Parliament,
was profoundly shocked.   These wiseacres���who  represent   the   charter-
mongers first, themselves second, and
the people last-bave not yet recovered
from their antediluvian Ideas that the
voters' list may consist of all exoepl
'criminals, lunatics, and women."   It
Is high time our legislators recognised
that women have to obey the law at
well as men, and that therefore they
ahould have a voice in Its making.
.Women are equally  Interested  with
I men in social and econoinie questions.
The education of the young has found
tbe ablest exponents and workers in
women.   A man sunk In degradation,
and who woald sell his vote (or a
glass ot beer, has a voice In electing
the legislators, yet the noble women
who form the wives and mothers ot
the community are precluded from a
privilege which  they oould exercise
more intelligently and honorably.   It
tt high time that we had at the bead
of affairs those who recognise with
Galileo that "the world does move,"
and who are prepared to generously
extend to woman the right that is heis
at well as thtirt.
Wo have repeatedly urged thu cause
ot the enlargement of the Donald
school. If ever a people have been
badly treated in the matter of school
accommodation the people ot Donald
have been. The school trustees recently again urged the Minister of
Education to have the school enlarged,
and this is the reply they got (rom
Mr. Pope, Superintendent of Education:���
"I am directed to state, in reply to
your communication of the 10th Inst,
that it is understood by the Department that the prospects are that the
attendance at your sohool- will be very
materially diminished In tht near
future on account ol the removal of
the C. P. R. works from your town,
and that under these circumstances
the Government would not at present
be justified Iii building any addition to
your sohoolhouse."
Apart Irom the railway workshops,
Donald is the centre of great mining
activity, and ts likely to be an important mining town. For over three
yeara the enlarged school accommodation has been required, and hu been
put off (rom timt to tlmt. thereby
inflicting a great wrong on the distriot. The (act that th* accommodation is and hat been urgently required ought to be sufficient justification for tbt work being done.

Th. Preepvater Chang*. It. View.
. In attacking an article in the Era
'? the,Fort Steele Prospector, in its issue
of June 16th, taid- -'The electors may
go along way and fare badly ere they
have a representative like the ptesent
one, who hat been moet devoted to the
belt Interests of East Kootenay." Just
a month afterwards the Prospector
has to eat Its own. words, and has
come round to the views of the Goi-uks
Era. Our contemporary now deadlines Col. Bskei as "prostituting his
position at our representative for
selfish purposes aud personal gain,"
- And again oar contemporary says:
���'We know that this ir another of the
many crimes to be oharged to himsell
and to the government of which he is
a member." Our contemporary ends
with th* following address to the
Hon. Jat. Baker: "Oo it while you
have the chance; your time is short.
Neither you, nor any man who has the
temerity to condone your sins, will
warm your seat again as member for
Eatt Kootenay. Had you delayed
your scheme until Cranbrook had an
existence at a town, or until the publio
interests seem to demand it, then yonr
unblushing infidelity would not have
been to evident. But your work Is too
eoarse, too coarse, Colonel. We can't

From Quebec a correspondent writes
to the Paris Daily Messenger:���"lot on
parle francais" might be written on
the portals ol this quaint and picturesque old city.   Strolling in  lower
Quebec you might easily fancy yourself  in  Amiens or  Dieppe.   In  thc
upper town theie is more English, bui
everywhere an amusing mixture.   On
the same card you will read '���Maisou n
louer" and "House to let"; on one side
of the door "Pas  d'udmis-tion   sans
affaires," and on the other "No admittance except on btiKineiis." This bilingual necessity causes- a Utile  extra
painting and printing. Each "railway
crossing"  must  be marked   likewise
"Traverse du cheinin de fer," and every
official "notice" must be printed also
In full as an "avis."   Tbe blending is
often curious, as when two adjoining
shops have their announcements one
in French and the other in English.
Along the Orand Alien, running right
across the Plains of Abraham, you
might be in Brussels or Paris, only
that ���'Clifton terrace" seems to recall
you  to  Kensington.   Travellers  for
whom Europe is too distant aro ad
vised to go to Quebec, there to find i
bit of the medieval old world trans
planted to the new, but still embalmed
in its ancient religious sentiinentalisin,
upon   which  the  rush   and roar ol
modern unrest produces as little effect
as the Atlantic breakers on the cliffs
of  Cape  Breton.    French   continues
uppermost until you pass Montreal,
but from Ottawa and Kingston to the
Pac.lic the legend of the nearly univer
sal tongue is like that ot the Paris
shopkeepers, who announced "Engiirh
spoken."   In most ot the best schools
English is taught, and a large number
of the people are convol mint with both
languages, Englifh being indispensable
for commerce.

sufferer for upwards of ten years with
sciatic rheumatism. I was tortured
with severe pains, which at times
would become almost unbearable, and
I think I suffered almost everything a
man can suffer and live. I was so
crippled that I could not work, and
part of the time was not able to even
move about. I became so weak, and
my system so run down, tbat I despaired of ever getting better. My case
was an almost hopeless one, and as I
had abandoned work I was almost
helpless for over a year, I heard of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I was
induced to at least give them a trial.
In a short time I began to recover, and
the agonising pains left my back and
limbs, so that I was enabled to walk
out of doors, Before I had used more
than half a doxeu boxes I was almost
entirely well, and could do a hard
day's work, I had a good appetite,
and began to gain flesh and feel like a

pains, and have Dr. Williams' Pink

Midsummer Danger
Faln'e'a Celery Compound Barely and
quickly (lure, Neuru.tb.nla
One of tht commonest  and  most
dangerous diseases of midsummer it
neurasthenia, or nervous prostration.
This disease, which respects neither
age nor sex, is usually brought on by
overwork and  worry  in  the shop,
office, home, and sohool.
It is maintained by physicians of
large experience that nervous diseases
are increasing so fast that today few
people can boast of perfect freedom
from nervous ailments,
The symptoms of nervous exhaustion are so well known that it is
almost unnecessary to name them,
Dinsineas, sleeplessness, palpitation of
the heart, shooting pains in tbe limbs,
paralytic symptoms, eoustipation, and
headache are the commonest leeders of
the disease.
One of tbe first indications ot nervous disease is irritability, then ensue) despondenoy, often followed by
terrible insanity.
How can nervous exhaustion be
cured so that insanity and death may
oe avoided.
Past experience and medical testimony answer the question fully.
Paine's Celery Compound is the only
medioine that can surely overcome
the troubles of the nervous. This
marvellous curing medicine braces up
every nerve, gives strength to the
muscles and tissues, makes pure, rich
blood, gives perfect digestion, and
sweet, sound sleep.
In this age of overwork, worry, and
fust living, Paine's Celery Compound
is a shield and protector against the
ravages of all nervous ailments, Medi
cal men and druggists huving a full
knowledge ot the virtues ot Paine's
Celery Compound are recommending it
every day.
Its cures attest its superiority and
usefulness; its work in puolic institutions hus given it a popularity
never possessed by any other medicine,
Try it. nervous one; it will quickly
give you that condition of health that
you are looking for. 92
