and had spoken to tbe Attorney General on the subject. Thought it would
be well if it could be held alternately
at Golden and Donald Certain forms
had to be gone through, the judge had
to be considered, etc., but that the

possible.     Next on the list  was the

iu our town, it was quite clear that
tbe present school building would not
be sutlicieiitly huge to accommodate
them. He was also of the opinion
that as the average attendance would
probably be iucre, sed in about two

Messrs. W. T. Wood, I.idlan ngont,
E. H. Jones, postmaster and Dr. Edgar returned on Thursday night from
a trip up the North Thompson river
ami Ijottis creek. They brought down
soma specimo is of very rich die from
the Hoiuesiake mine, now being work
el by Olson uud partners, one piece of
Which is quartz, in which liative flake,
anil wire s.lver is visible, They have
another s unplt in which the mineral
is not so plainly ilisceruable, but is
in ic!i i'oiier. Oilier valuable mineral
his bean found lu the locality, ami
tliey predict that still richer discoveries will lie made here this summer.
The party speak highly of the enterprise of the owners of the Hoinestake
mine who have gone ahead developing
their property without waiting for
others to come along ami help tbem.
They have cut a lfi-foot trail from the
mine.to a small lako between that
point anl Snitli's landing on the
N >rth Thoinps 11. It follows the lake
shore and then leads towards the river.
T.iey at-j n it mi ling j ist now, having
spent the past two weeks on the tra'l
and they will require another week to
finish it. They are urging the government to build a wagon road for
four miles from the lake, ns settlers
have gone in far ami require it, but if
the government does not do that, they
will continue the trail to the North
Thompson. They have (10 tons of ore
ou the dump, and Mr. Lyons will begin
packing it out as soon as the trail is
tluishel, when the miners will continue getting out ore, as they have
now no doubt that tho property will
pay handsomely for all work spent on
it.���Kamloops Sentinel.

Canadians seem to drink less' and
smoke more than formerly. In lSili-il
they used 2,8:11,833 gallons of home

The Chinese version of the retirement of Mr. Glndstone from the Pre-

is that the rise iu ''shilling bills" is
due to tho English Emperor changing

Tho London Times publishes an agricultural review of Great Britain. According to the figuresthe area in Great

The British Government has gained
some coveted pieces of territory from
Mexico iu the negotiations for lhe
establishment of the boundary between
Yucatan and British Honduras. The
line drawn by the Queen's Commissioner, and now affirmed by Mexico, is
that for whicli Britain has contended
during the lust IU0 years. It gives
li r the control of a mahogany producing region that is rich and desirable.
Wheu Britain bus a controversy with
another country about the boundary of
her outlying possessions she is very
sure to secure its settlement in her

Wheat, Vim   Home  und   lllnivtiilllst.
Etlitor Golden Eua :
Sin,--"Binietiillist," in your last,
seems the natural successor in this correspondence to the member for East
Kootenay, if he be not that gentleman
himself. The arguments anil language
nre the same, so much so that I am
reminded of the ostrich hiding his
head ill the sand.
He assumes that silver in silver
currency countries is not depreciated ���
that   "it retains its full  purchasing j |,eop|e, yet what do we find, Mr. Pooley
power   while   a   drug   outside  their j thinks the chances for his company for
bouudiir'es."   That this is a fallacy is
amply proved by the everyday quotations of the "premium on gold" which
a tip for railroad support and gave
both it and its father the cold shoulder.
The officials of the railroad companies
worked like galley slaves to win that
five per cent. This year it looks us if
a heavier bid is to he made, but not in
the same open manner, the thing looks
us harmless as a stick of giant powder.
I refer to the little sham battle between
the Hon. Prime Minister and the Hon.
President of the Council, over the
minerals in the lands granted to the
Island road. Both gentlemen .stand
high in their profession ns "knights
of the wis-," both gentlemen are sup
posed to look after the interests of the
may bo seen iu the reports from these
places. It shews extreme simplicity
on his part to suppose tliut "Engl'sh
merchants cun tuke cheap silver to
these countries ui.d there buy wheat
the price of which has not been affected by the fall in silver." What does
he think the merchants of Russia,
India and the Argentine Republic are
made of that they should sell their
wheat to Englishmen in exchange for
depreciated silver (of which they have
already a superabundance) when by
shipping it to England themselves they
could realize tlie London pi ice just us
easily as the Englishmen could.
As already mentioned wheat and
silver are entirely independent of each
other, nud the silver market which
may be located in Lombard street is
i ot eons dcred, except indirectly, in
Mark Lane-the centre of business in
wheat. A bad season might send
wheat to a dollar, while silver, by
overproduction, might buck down to
4'> cents. The same may be said of
cor i or copper or any other commodity.
With reference to wheat "Bimetal-
list" says "the silver countries have
giaiped the situation mil the cultivated urea of wheat is lilt raising with
enormous strides, the exports are
alarming, etc."
If this activity lie really the outcome
of cheap silver the latter must lie a
blessing in disguise, for any further
full will further stimulate production
and give an abundant and therefore
cheap supply of one of the main necessaries of life. I incline to think however that the cause will be found in
the development of India and the Argentine Republic brought about by the
introduction of British capital commenced before the fall ill silver was
thought of.
" Binietalllst" winds up by a timely
caution to Mr. Van Home. He tells
hiin that ns gold is appreciated every
month any money invested in the
building of railways and other enterprises for developing natural resources
will constant ly decrease in value in
proportion as gold appreciates, and
ihen hccoolly says " never mind that,'1
hut place out your money as of rid
nnd employ lhe millions of starving
labourers who will then buy out
wheat."
Supposing all the world's supply of
gold were destroyed would it materially affect the dividend earning capacity
of the GlUt. or lhe fertility of the
soil, or thu growth of lumber, or the
multiplication of lish ? We should
get un with '���promises to pay " and
lhe homely "I.O.C." which liduciary
paper bus been in all times a good
stand-by. The multiplication of money
melius lessened value, and tu double its
quantity is equivalent to cutting its
purchasing power in two.
Kudi-ENAV East.
the minerals in their lands so good
that he bus advised ..ction to recover
them from the Province, If tlie matter would end there we in Kootenay
might feel easy, but 'will it end there?
It looks to me us if it were the thin
end of the wedge started, and you
must, be aware Mr. Editor intiny a
race is decided before the horses start
for while the Minister of Mines is putting the miner ou the back his colleague
is starting the wedge to cut the very
ground from under his feet,
with all respect to the present
administration tho bid is too high, the
minerals of this province belong to the
people, not railway companies, A
Government official once remarked that
the settlers in this valley were a grade
abovo the Indian, yet I venture to say,
after ton years experience among tbem,
that not one of the lot but could swap
off his farm and have a clause iu the
agreement to retain the crop that all
the law from Atlantic to Pacific could
not breuk, yet our figure heads cannot
swap u few thousand acres of laud and
retain the crop. There is a screw
loose some place, the people had better
