G, C, TUNSTALL,
29 Gold Commissioner,
Revelstoke, September 26th, 1890,
Tn be known as a " Silver Lunatic" ia not quite ho great a reproach
as it was a few nonius ago, Silver
has advanced in valno from 92 cents
loSI.-Oan ounce, although it has
declined from the extreme figure to
7:40 I about $1,10, The principal cause of
8:48 |he advance was the legislation of
nn'.en i the United Slates Congress, requiring the Treasui-ro' to bur 4,500,000
ounces of silrur monthly, and io pay
for it iu a specially prepared currency based upon the uietal itself as security. As a natural result under
Ihe circumstances, speculators suw
the opportunity, aud purchased immense quantities on speculation, carrying the prioo up to $1,20, bnt a
sharp spasm of tight aaeney compelled soma holders to realize, and caused the reaction,
There appears to ba a disposition,
on the part of some Canadian papers
to belittle and discredit this advance
in the value of silver, It seems to
us, withent arguing the qnestiou
from a financial standpoint, that it is
of as much importance to British
Columbia that direr should inareaae
iu value, as that the fish of its riven
and coasts, its grain and live stock,
and the lumber of its forests, should
bear a high pi-ice, because it is a
proJuetien of its mines, and likely
to increase largely with their development. Because silver is mado a
financial outlaw by the Old Lady of
Tbreadueeille Street, aud the holders
of British Consols are paid their interest in gold, ie not a good reason
<thy the men who delve for it in Ike
mountains of B. Columbia, should
condtinu it. The people of this Pro-
���,ince, and especially of Kootenay
Diotriut, ahou'i.l mnko common causo
with every effort, uo matter whero
emanating, to elevate tho value of
silver.

THE TREND OF BUSINESS.
Three of fho merchants of Revelstoke havo branch stores in the
southern part of the district, and
ono Illecillewaet firm, Green Bros.,
has a branch at Sproat. J. Fred.
Hums has his locution at Nelson,
and E. S. Wilson k Co., at Airs-
worth. These are evidenoas of ei -
terprise much to the credit of the
firms named. To soma extent however, iu a new and mining country,
where the population shifts with the
demand for labor on publio improvements, or from the excitements which
are proverbial among miuers when
new discoveries are made, it is necessary that merchants should keep
pace with their customers. The
trend of business has beeu for this
season to a large extent southward,
owing to iho construction ef Ihe
Columbia k Kootonay Railway, the
continued prosperity of the niiuos at
Hot Spriugs, and the establishment
of a new camp at Trail Creek.
Theso are good reasons why tbe merchants of Revelstoke maiutain stores
j in those, localities, and why the parent stores hero become the sources
which are largely drawn upon to replenish etooka. Tho reason why
some purchaaes are made on the
���tber aide of tho boundary can he
readily explained by the fact that
transportation from Sproat to Nelson has so far been by pack trail and
very expensive. This obstacle is
soon to be surmounted by Ihe completion of the Columbia it Kootenay
Railway, and when spring opous
again tho question will bo thoroughly
tested whether the 0. P. R and the
Steamboat Co., will regulate freight
charges so that it will be pessiblfl
for the merchants of Canada to supply Southern Koctinay with ils
goods, provisions and mining supplies. If they do this, Iievelstoke
will more than ever become tbo place
where wholesale stocks will be carried, whioh will be promptly within
call, and nearer than Spokane Falls.
Meantime, ii session of thu Dominion Parliament will bo held, and if
ula are necessary to mike tbe business of Southorn Kootenay more
secure to Canadian merchants lha.-i it
ia at present, a very liroad hint from
Washington has been recently given
to our Finance Minister ns to how
bueh euda c*n be uri!im:pli".hel.

Uncle Bill's   Bet.
'So there has beeu some more
stealing down to lbe Comer, has
there?' remarked Uncle Bill Perkins
to me, as I dropped in the otlier
evening, to make the old couplo a
call.
'Yes,' I replied,, 'Foster's store
has been htoken open (.gain, and he
says thero is lots of goods gone,
Two or threo bonsec have been eu-
tercd when the folks were away, and
each of them lost something. There
is a thief hanging around in these
parts, aud he is growiug bolder every
day.'
'Ain't they got no track of who it
i-?'
'No, there aiu't any clue yet?'
���Do thoy mistrust anybody around
these parts?'
'No I haven't heard that they do?'
'Our'ns. aiu't it? Now, if eld
Harry Tuffts was a-living, I should
feel aura that it was him. He was
th. master old thief that ever lived
in ,bese parts. He was so cunning
(hat although you were sure he had
do. e a thing, it was hard work   o
faste.itontohim.   They used to
nv that he was the Evil One hisself,
un,l il he wasn't, ho must be a near
relation.   Re would make a bet that ^^
be would steal something right afore j clu((j to (llB jjOU8i6|   ^e was on her
tour face and eyes, and in spite of f(jut) gD(j j sta,,teJ  for tba  kitchen
vou he'd do it.   Bat the master game | artw my gl.n/
I ever  knowed  him to play was ou j    .j}ut j hadu't taken two steps afore
Nancy here?' I the old goose give a terrible aqnaw k.
'Bill l'erkiusl' she disgustedly ex-1 'i'i10 f���x had got hold on her and no
mistake, and 1 see that if we wonld
save her life thar wasn't no iimo to
get the gun.
She hid laid  and  sot  rite nnder
''All the a^eo r,tt cp a shout, for
tbey thought Harry was corners 1.
'I'll have it,' he said ; 'and yon
may tell the old woman about the
bet, if yon want to, in th* bargain.'
'Of course 1 shall tell bar.' said I,
'so that she will look out that you
don't get yer bunds cu ii.'
'When I got home i told Nancy
about the bet, and alio was mad as a
broke-lip aettiug hen. She said I
ought to ba ashamed of myself for
talking about her before a whole
store lull of men, and that nobody
but a fool would have done it. As
for old Harry Tufl'ts, she said tbat if
he come round whore she wbb she
wonld scald him, if there was a drop
of hot water in tbe teakettle.'
'For some day:) wu sees nothing
of him, bnt the story got round, nnd
all the women in the neighborhood
plagued bancy about it. This made
her madder und madder, and she
kept mo iu hot water from morning
till night.
'It was about three weeks after
ward when, one night, after Naney
and I had turned in, and I was
brought to my seuses by Nancy's elbows a-digging into my ribs. 1
started up, thinking the house was
aliro. She was a-icreehing at tho
top of her voice, and seemed in a
terrible fit about somelhiug.
'What is it, old woman?' I asked
rubbing mj eyas. 'Can't ye let a
fellow alone when bo's tired and
sleepy ?
'Don't you hear that, Bill Perkins?
There's a foi close to the bouse.
Thar! can't you hear him bark? He's
arter the old goose who's a-settiug
here under tha winder on eleven
eggs, and nigh sboui ready to hatch.
Get yer gun, Bill, and shoot him il
you can. If you cant hit him���and
nobody expects you will, for you
ean't take aim anv better than a
sheep���perhaps you may scare him
off. Hurry up, or he'll have tbe
goose afore ye get out of bod.

good run, all  day work,  and  was

'Bout a year after we'd got to doin' a
good  business I  had  somo extra

^^^^^ ibeitv, but
when he foi! (wo men bad already
gone down before his never failing
aim. The incidents attending his
mad dash for liberty and his death
are thrilling in the extreme. It was
a grand climax to his career of crime
and adventure.
Burrows was captnred late yesterday in a negro cabin eight Miles
south of Linden. His captors wore
J, C. Carter, a country merchant,
uud Juhn McBuffie, a farmer, and 2
negro farm hands. The four men
carried their captive to Linden, and
placed him iu theconnty jail for safe
keopiiig last night. They plaoed
handcuffs oi: his wrists and tied his
feot together with a rope, and then
McDuffio and ono of the negros, Jno.
Marshall, remained to watch him.
Carter look charge of tho money
found on him, ��178, and securing a
room near the jail went to sleep, A
well worn leather satchel was carried
by Burrows when captured, which
h' said contained some food and
clothing. Tb)s was thrown in one
corner of the room where be was
confined without being examined.
Manacled as ha was, Burrows slept,
soundly on a cot until i this morning, when the two guards watched
over him with pistols in their bauds.
When Burrows awoke, ho said :
I am hungry. Get me something
to eat,
I cannot get yon anything to eat
at this hour, answered McDuffie,
Well, hand me my satchel over
there, I have a few crackers in that.
McDuffio handed him the Batchel,
and with his hands manacled, Uur-
rows opened it and took out some
crackers which ho handed to his
guards. They put down their pistols
aud took the proffered food. Again
the manacled hands went down iuto
tho iatchel,acd when they reappear-
e 1 again each hold a revolver. With
a pi;tol pointed at each of his astonished captors, Burrows ordered the
negro to untie his feet and unlock
tbe handcuffs.   The negro obeyed.
Now put those cuffs on tbat man,
ordered tbe outlaw, pointing to McDuffio with a revolver. Again the
negro obeyed, aud the captor became
the bound and helpless prisoner.
Unbar tho door, was the next order, aud tho door was promptly
iwung open. Then Burrows pocketed oue of his pistols, and with his
free baud secured tbe key to the
door. Matching the negro out iu
front of him, ho locked tbe door on
the outside, leajiog Mc.Dullie.a help-
loss prisoner within.
Now, then, lead tho way to the
man who has my money, ordered th,e
outlaw, and the trembling negro
conducted him to tbo door of tho
room whoie Carter was Bleeping,
Burrows knocked, ami in response
to Carter's question, Who is there?
he ordered the negro in a whisper
to say that McDuffie wanted him at
the jail. Carter recognized the ne
gro'S voice and came to the door. As
he opened it Burrows thrust a pistol
in his face and demanded :
Where is my money ? Give it to
mo.
Carter recognized Burrows, and at
once comprehended the situation,
Ho sprang in the bed where his pistol was lying, flu grasped it, and
taming quickly, .'.red almost at the
same instant that Burrows fired.
Carter was shot through the breast
above Ihe heart, but tbe bullet passed entirely through the body of Burrows, 'lbe outlaw staggered back
from thu dour to tho street, and a
second shot Irom his revolver crashed through the shoulder of Marshall,
iullictiug a painful but not danger-
ens wound. Badly wounded as he
was, Carter ran out into the street
and bred four more shots at Burrows
who was still backing away. Burrows emptied oue of his pistols, but
as he reached the opposite side of
the stl'll t he suuk dewo with a groan
and after one cuuvulsivo shudder,
was dead, Carter fell about the same
tine, Ilia- wound is a dangerous ono,
but it is thought ho will reoover.
and reciting  the  fact ibat  puprrs
have been found by the police which
go io show that (he Italians have n
strongly organizod societc :.��'' have
been active in opposition to tbe Maria.
The council at once passed a resolution suggesting the mayor appoint
a special committee ef fifty to meet
and advise with the mayor and council.   The mayor  ha�� appointed  a
committee which comprises the leading business mes  of  New   Orleans
and Ibe trailer will be taken in baud
immediately.    This afternoon  the
mayor  received   a communication
from the Mafia notifying him ho will
be uext victim.   Shakespeare is determined that the vsndetl.il  shall  be
wiped out of eixstence.   ThecitiznnB
tu-egrcatly oxuitod mnl reeling against
the Italians is exceeding bitter.   A
bloody race riot is threatuned.   Hennessy wus only  thirty-two years of
age, but bad won a high reputation
as perhaps the best chief ef police
New Orleans ever had.   It  was  bn
who some years ago captured  the
famous Italian brigand and bandit
GiuMoppe Espositn, and   delivered
him to the Italian authorities.   It is
thought that among the murderers
may have been some of Esposita's
band, which ws,s for years a terror
to Naples and Sicily.

Wo have not tasted of a duck nor
any kind of game aiuco the close
season ended, and the wonder is what
has become of it all. A good deal
was aaid about the open season, anil
much eager anxiety was manifested
by sportsmen waiting for it. If there
is uo game now, where has it gone?
Would it uot pay tho Government
officials to institute an inquiry ou
Ibe subject, and if there has been
any surreptitious and illegal shooting and eating of ducks, find oat
who it was that "got away with
them ?."
An innocent couple who could not
talk or understand English, presented themselves to the minister to be
married, each one iu the proud possession of a miner's license. Tbe

.). M, Buckley, of Spokane, and
George Herb, of Medioa! Lake, returned from a we��k's trip to the
Eootenai mines, where both have extensive interests. They report that
tha famous Hot Springs camp is getting bettor evorv day.
On tho Little Donald, John Davenport's mine, a steam pump and
hoisting works havo been placed in
position and the shaft waa pnmpoil
dry last Friday, and tho mon who
have the contract to sink an extra
50 feet aro now engaged in that op-
oration. In tbe bottom of tlio shall
tho property looks bettor than at any
point upwards.
One day lutt week while tha workmen of tha Skyliuo were leading
ground for an aibiitioual building on
tho eourse of tho vein, thoy uncovered h deposit of very rich soft ore,
and iu one day two luou sacked   fit
000 worth of the stuff,
Iu tho Due of now discoveries the
south extension of tho Eden is the
most important. Tho ledge was
struck near Coffee oreek, and csiub-
lishos the fact that the vein extends
southward to that stream, which
places it in the rauk of one of the
longest- traced ledges in the camp
and probably tho strongest. The
main locations on this lead are Krao
und Ciow Fledging, owned, by A.
D. Wheeler aud some Salt Lake
parties ; tho Now Then owned by
Captuiu Haywsrd, of tho steamer
Galena, ami tho Cresoeut and Eden,
owned by tho Columbia Mining Co.,

placed that claim with the six Lest
properties in the camp,
On the United and Number One
work goes on with tho most gratifying results. On tho former chum
tbo double compartment shafts ia
dowu now fifty leet, nnd in going
that distauce 1,000 tons of ore havo
heen taking out, whose average
value does uot full below $60 per
tons,
Dr. Hondryx keeps up his liok at
the Blue Bull, and up to dato the
tunnels, shafts and diifts oombined-
ly measure 1.CU0 feet, placing iu
slight nnd incredible tonnage of ore,
The doctor stales that in addition to
other improvements ho will put b
fast passenger steamer ou the lake
and river for neit summer, and as
soon a.s a railroad touches navigable
water a mammnth smelter will be
erooted near his property.
Professor Parks, a graduate of Co
lumbis college, asd now iu the em
ploynient of the Northern Pacific as
reining engineer al a salary uf $1,000
por month, is now in the camp ihor
oughly examining tho capabilities of
��� the oonntry as a producer ol tonnage
j ard upon his report will depend the
: construction in the spring of the
Northern Pacifio line from Kootenai
stulion '.0 aoms pcint tn the Kootenay river. He appears highly
pleased and will, beyond ft doubt
make a favorable report, lie is the
