Geo. id. JfcAuley  Held up  and Ptc-
lieved of $11,000 in Gold Bullion.
Geo. B. McCimley, secretary n5 the
Cariboo Mining Company, was returning
from Camp McKinney, B. ('., toSpokano
on Tuesiluy, Aug. IS."with nearly (11,000
worth of gold bullion, when he was bold
np and robbed by a masked man. Mc-
Cnuley tells bis story as follows:
"Tiles.lav morning, I stalled alone
from the Cariboo mine nt ( amp McKinney, in a buggy, with three gold
bricks weighing 056}^ ounces. About
two and a naif miles from the mine, on
a little bill in the woods, 1 heard u voice
Saying:'Give ub your money,' I looked
up to the left, and on Ihe hank of the
road, about thirty feet distant, 1 saw a
masked man. He was pointing a short-
barreled carbine at me. lie them told
mo to bold up my hands, I told him I bad
no arms with me, but bo insisted on my
holding up my hands, He said to me:
'Throw out the money.' I got oul of the
buggy, went to the back part, and took
nut the saddlebags which contained the
bricks. He ordered me to throw them
on the bank, which I did. lie then
asked me if I had anv money. 1 replied
that 1 Inula few dollars, and said : 'Surely
you don't want that.' He again savagely said: 'Throw it out.' In my right
pants pocket I bad a i,b bill, If] In silver,
smd a little small change, and a knife. 1
turned the pockel inside out, and threw
the contents on the bank. Then 1 returned to the buggy, and ho ordered mo
to drive in front of liim. 1 turned my
head around to see whal he was doing.
He immediately dropped the saddlebags,
took up his rifle, and pointed il at me.
He told me to drive on, and nol turn
buck. That was the last I saw of him.
I bad sonic money in another pocket,
which he could have had lorthoasking."
Bryan's Definition of Free Silver.
In a speech al Pittsburg, recently,
Wm..I. Bryan, Democratic nominee for
for presidency, gave a lucid definition of
"free coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to
1." lb-said: "Sixteen lo one simply
means that according to law the debt-
paying power of om- ounce of gold, w hen
coined, shall be equal to the debt-paying
power of III ounces of silver, when
coined. Ii simply means that thesilver
dollar is sixteen times as heavy as the
gold dollar. When we say that we are
in favor of the present ratio of 1(1 to I,
we simply mean thai we arc in favor of
having the silver dollar remain the size
it is row, and in favor of having the
gold dollar remain the Bize it is now.
That is what we mean, Thai, bus been
the ratio since the dais of Andrew
Jackson, nnd thai Bhall be the ratio at
whioh lhe mints Bhall bo opened to the
free and unlimited coinage of silver,
"It means this: Thai if you haven
debt yon can go into the market and
buy silver and have it coiled, and use
that silver ly pay yonr del,is. Already
you can go out into the murket and buy
gold and have it coined to pay your
debts; and when you have the right to
use either one of them, if they attempt
to corner one metal, you can use the
other, But, if yon have but one metal
which you can convert into money, and
iiml metal Is cornered, yon arc at the
mercy of those who arc managing tho
".Now, jusl one wi,nl more. I have
heard people talk about going out and
buying Bllver for 50 cents, having it
coined lilts 100 cents, and profiting to
the extoi t   of   the  dlffereni".    1 nave
know n spend time in  bi ■ 'ulating
upon how much could be mi e under
mul u -ys|, in. t cannol for tiie life of
mo Bee where tho profit is goiiu! to be.
I cannot see who is going to sell silver
for less than ii would be worth coined.
But there nre people speculating as to
the amount that cnn he mn le nl buying
ii al half pri •-."
A Voice—" Wouldn't the sil,*er mine
owners have a monopoly?"
"The silver. « lien produced, is of no
use to the man who prod ices it until be
either exchanges it ho- money or converts It into money fnr his own use.
And the moment lie brings that silver
from the mine and converts it, into
money, that money is in use to buy
commodities produced by ihu toilers of
this country.   And until that money is
brought into existence, there is JIO
money to buy the things whieh people
