(Continued from last week.)
111. I shall now proceed to discuss
separately, in the form of question and
answer, the chief objections urged
against bimetallism.
11. 0 i.i i'i'mix.-Gold and silver
are merchandise, not differing essentially from iiu.y other two articles, and
the valiiu of each depends on the cost
of production, not ou any possible law;
so it is impossible for Government to
make the value of the gold iu a sovereign equal (o that of the silver ill
twenty shillings.
Axswi'-it.-- Wo huve parliully discussed this point already. Neither
cost uf production nor anything
else can ultect the value of gold
or silver without altering the supply
of these metals or the demand for
them. AVe have therefore to enquire
whether supply and demand are more
under the control of Government iu
the case of gold and silver than of
other articles. Demand is certainly
controllable by Government, us we
have partially explained, and snp-
supp'.y  is,   by the nature of  things,
ible. have accumulated to an exlent,
probably fifty times greater than the
liuiiiuul production; consequently iiiinu-
ul supplies have very little elfect ou
existing stocks, which we may cull
existing supplies, Animal supplies,
moreover, cannot usually be increased
rapidly and at the same time profitably. Some mines fail while new ones
are discovered, and it is generally
ditlicult io work a mine rapidly. It is
thus evident that the peculiar circumstances of gold uud silver render it
possible for Government to regulate
their values, by acting ou demand in
presence of enormous existing supplies, which  cannot lie rapidly diniin-
goods which cost ill'IO in 1878. The
impossibility of raising prices again to
that point may be seen if we consider
that to raise prices by hO percent,'
gold using countries would have to iu-
cii-uso metallic  money   by  something
quired would be ��480,000,001), a sum
not obtainable in silver from silver
using countries, for it exceeds tlie
total of their silver money, estimated
to be no more than about ��400,000.1100,
even on the old high valuation of silver. Seme of this silver would no
doubt come, iiecatise through bimetal'
lisiu it would have a higher value
than befoie, and thus an unusual
profit could be made by exporting
goods to silver-money countries for
payment in silver. This extraordinary
movement would, of course, cease as
soon us prices in those countries were
sullicieiitly reduced by the departure of
their silver.
111. OBJECTION.���America is pressing for bimetallism merely  to  get rid
ishedby consumption, or increased by |o�� her stuplns stock of cheap silver,
with which we would be flooded.
Axsivku. ��� America has uo surplus
stock of silver. She bus a great quantity of silver, but it is all used, either
annual production.
This explanation of tlie principles of
bimetull sm shows its possibility, but
ihe best and highest proof is the nctu-
ii 1 successful practice of the system
Which continued iu England with some
intermission for centuries, till lSKi,
and on ihe Continents of Europe and
America till 1S78. Some persons have
said that even tinder bimetallism, during the Liitaii Union, the values oi
gold and silvir were not steady to one
another. This mistaken idea refers
io the sliubt variations of value between coined and uncoined metal, such
as continually occur even nowadays in
London, because bars of gold are generally more convenient than coined
gold for export. Under bimetallism,
us iu France from 180;) till 1H73. there
never was any difference of value be-
very slowly changeable if wo reckon twoen a sum of money in gold coin
existing stocks together with yearly nnii the same iu silver coin. The
production. ttoval   Commission   of   188:i   titiani-
First let us consider demand. Gov- moiisly supported this the main con-
ernment can influence the demand cn- toution of tho bimotallists, in the fol-
orinoiislv. by declaring that gold or j lowing terms:-'-Not withstanding the
silver, or both of them,  shall   be ma-1 changes iu the production and   use of
torial for money. So great is this
coinage demand, that il fur exceeds
nil industrial deiii..iids, and if it were
stopped gold and silver might not have
a quarter of their prcsout value. Now
if wo had bimetallism, that is free
coinage of both metals.   ��� ith I herty to
the precious metals, ii (bimetallism)
!��� t the market price of silver approximately steady al the ratio fixed bylaw
betweoo them, namely 15J to 1. We
think that in any conditions fairly
to be oontemplared in the future, so
far as we can forecast from tho oxpei'l-
in circulation or to-secure notes which
are iu circulation. She cannot, however, go on at the present rale increasing her silver coinage, otherwise there
may be no use for goid, which is leaving her. A bimetallic union of nations
would enable her to keep both gold and
silver, as we have seen; but, if a union
cnniiot be arranged, she must soon
either cease to coin silver and join in
the disastrous scramble for gold, or
else abandon gold and rely on a silver
currency, as India does. In no case
would America's stocks ot silver leave
her, for she needs all she has. Undei
bimetallism neither gold nor silvei
could fioud any country, in tlie sense
of going there without being wanted,
for the one metal would be just, as
serviceable as the other, and practically a nation could have whichever of
the two it might choose for
ordinary use. As regards the
motives of America in this matter,
her chiiit wish is for steady piic(-? under a bimetallic union of nations; and
the fact that this would raise the
value of silver is of comparatively
small moment to so rich a country
where even the hay crop is many
times more valuable than tho output of
.liver.   The streng'.h of the bimetallic

less significant for the fill are of the
country. Ou Tuesday, for the first
time, nil the available carrying space
ou the road wns loaded fo its full capacity with ore.
The shipment comprised (10.000 lbs.
of ore from the Bluebird mine, i)i),(.00
lbs. Irom the Dardanelles, and 213,010
lbs. from tho Noble Five, or lull tons
in nil. The approximate value of this
one ore shipment is $25,000. It will
be followed by a shipment of from 40
to (10 tons from the Washington, as
well ns the befoie mentioned mines,
an I later by continuous shipments
from the Mountain Chief, and liefore
the snow flies many other prospects
will be in a position to add their share.
Fifteen hundred tons have up till now
been actually booked in addition to
500 tons which has been shipped during the lust three weeks. But there is
little doubt that lii.GOO tons is a small
estimate of the amount that will be
actually produced during tho coming
winter. . The Canadian Pacific will
have its resources in the West Kootenay taxed to the utmost to handle
this freight. But the attention of the
company bus i.t last been aroused to
the possibilities of the ore truffle, and
in consequence will make a rupreme
effort, to keep communication open, nt
least, during a part of tho winter. The
road from Revelstoke will be built to
the mouth of the Iilecillewaet within
the next thirty days, and it is maintained that this will keep communication open till well ou iu tho season.
The rate of :J11 a ton from Kaslo to
S.m Francisco allows a fair profit to
the road. The Columbia &. Kootenay
Steam Navigation Co. gets $1.1)0 a ton
for tlie haul from Kaslo to Nelson and
$1.50 from Robson to Revelstoke. The
freight can be carried very cheaply
from Revelstoke to the coast, and
when the Canadian Pacific gets its
projected system in West Kootenay iu
working order it will probably lie able
to handle the ore even more cheaply
than at present.
Contracts are being let now to haul
ore from the mines to Kaslo for 815 a
ton just us soon as sleighing begins.
This rale, together with the $11 rate
to Sau Francisco, will effect such a
reduction in cost of transportation that
it will lie much more profitable to mine
silver in West Kootenay this year than
lust, in spile of the fall in the price of
silver, Everything points to the fact
that tho country is on the eve of n
tremendous advance, an advance not
cau   :d by an inrush ot  investors, and

$1,503,988. Another steamer will
leave on llie 30th. Nearly all the
above was in the form of silver, most,
ly Mexican dollars. The low price of
these coins is a great inducement to
shippers, who buy them for 60c, and
pass them in China and Japan for
their full face value.
A Uru.it Gold Field.
Tiie estimated yield of the Randt
mines in South Africa thisjotir is a
total of 1,500,100 ounces, which would
he.worth about $2.',00C.tCO. Each
month has shown an advance of output except Fibriinry. I.i August I bo
yield wns 18'i,0GD ounces. South Africa is now the most prolific auriferous
region ot the world, but it has been
only skimmed so fur, there still being
vast reef deposits to develop. Ono
thing is greatly iu favor of enterprise.
The 'milling is said to lie conducted
fairly in llie intervals of shareholders,
and the processes are the most economical known, with the result that
almost every particle of gold is extracted, and the tailings, altet treatment, tue valueless.

Canada has made one of the largest

Its collection, which illustrates ihe

country, the way the fishing industry
is carried on in the different parts of
the Dominion, the mode of handling,
preserving, curing and packing, and
the products of its fishery, is one of
the most important and interesting
features of the exposition.
Its collection of stuffed lish is declared to be the most complete and

variety shown by any exhibitors in
the fisheries building. The collection
is particularly rich in regard to the
siilmonidae, which is of great value
from a scientific point of view. The

and cannot lie too highly commended.
The exhibit, composed mainly of
models ot boats nnd of trap nets, recommends itself by the neatness of the
models, illustrating the mode of fishing, and the progress made during
recent years. Their tasteful arrangement contributes greatly to the interest of tlie exposition. The collection
of fish oils is varied, and the article
shown of excellent quality iu every

There was considerable difference
of opinion among the members of the
general committee on awards which
is the court of tipped 1 from the decision
of the departmental committees, its to
the wording of this award. All
agreed that Camilla's exhibit deserved
the highest award the Fair authorities
could give, but it was maintained by
some thai as awards are made solely
on merit, and without any element of
competition, that tho words largest and
best should be omitted, as they involve
the competitive idea and intimated
that the exhibit was hotter and larger
than other exhibits. After some discussion, which resulted in the refusal
of the committee of awards on fisheries
refusing to alter the wording of their
judgment, the general committee agreed
to accept it with comparative allusions.
