Winnipeg, Oet. 80.���Hon. .1. C. Patterson,   late   Lieutenant-Governor  of
Multiloba, was waiteil oil by Mr.King,
of Port Arthur, chairman of the Conservative Association, and A.C lloyee,

stimulus of overflowing coffers a scale
of expenditure has been set that it
will probably be found necessary to
recede from when a period of bad
times comes with decreased receipts,
and it is desirable that action in this
direction should be taken at once.
The Liberal convention of ISO!) declared in favor of selling the public
lands to actual settlers only. The
restriction of the convention bearing
upon Uns question wus as follows:
11 'That, in the opinion of the convention, the sales of public lands of
thu Dominion should be to actual settlers only, and not to speculators,upon
reasonable terms of settlement, and in
sui'li areas as can reasonably be occupied ami cultivated by the settler.'
"I had the honor of Brat introducing this in Parliament, in 1880. Since
the Liberal party came into power,
no legislation has been placed upon
the statute book to give effect to this
salutary policy, and the observance of

Durham has rendered to the cause of

cites instances whore Americans have
been reprimanded for unscrupulous
riding, but there is all the difference
in the world between the wild riding
of a jockey over anxious to win a race
and pulling to prevent winning,
which was implied in Lord Durham's
speech. It is unfair to single out
American jockeys, or even their fol-
lowers, as worse than English, without evidence to support such tin allegation. American followers are not a
whit, more undesirable than English
ruffians such as have always been the
curse of race courses."
Winnipeg, Oet. SO.���B. P. Uoblin
will tuke the olliee as premier of Manitoba oilay. The cabinet will be the
same as wired some weeks ago. A Nanaimo despatch says that Mr.
Messrs. Maedonald and Johnson being W. W. II. Melnnes, at a big meeting

question.    Mr. Charlton says:
"While holding that Canada is not
likely to he able to get preferential
treatment for her food products In the
Hritish markets, owing to the relatively small amount of our trade with
that country, as compared with her
export and import tiade with foreign
nations, 1 am free to confess thut I
may be mistaken iu this view. Canada now discriminates in favor of the
Hritish importer to the extent of 33X
per cent., and this discrimination is
purely gratuitous anil sentimental, for
tlrcat llritain gives to Camilla not the
slightest tariff concession that does
not equally apply to all other nations.
In addition to this discrimination we
have put forth great efforts, spent
much money, and saciiilccd many valuable lives for the purpose of niain-
aiulng tho cause of the Umpire in
South Africa. All this has been done
without a return, and has been done
Ungrudgingly, and perhaps there may
be some force in the assertion that under the eiicuinstanecs it. would have
done no harm If a greater effort had
been made to obtain from (Ireat Brit
nin some trade concession in our favor, and It is not unreasonable to sup
pose that at least some slight advantage such, perhaps, as the removal of
tne restriction upon  the Importation
of our cattle might have been obtained
from the Hritish Government,

the House of Commons, urge the opening of negotiations with the Home
tlovernment for thu purpose of obtaining, if possible, trade concessions

In a more favorable position in her
market than that enjoyed by the foreign states.
"The (lovernment was fortunate in
assuming office just at the beginning
of a period of prosperity, which not
only applies to us, but to all commercial nations, and which it is well to
realize has been due to the blessings
of Providence and to causes beyond
the control of the Canadian (lovernment. it is tho duty of a Oovernment

but this robber tlovernment of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's had drained it of
upwards of $1,(100,000. The legislation regarding Hritish Columbia was
a complete farce, and only intended
to appease the clamors of the people

abominable abuse rampant there.

a message sent to Sir Wilfrid Laurier:

Association,   Vancouver:

WILFRID LAURIER.
After the election this telegram will
probably be forgotten as quickly as
that "Chinese" messuge of four years
ago.
ENGLISH VS. AMEUICA.
Sporting Writers Still   Discussing the
Racing Question,
London, Oct. 89.��� The question of
English vs. American methods In the
racing world continues to agitato the
sporting writers for the London Press.
The Daily Telegraph again protests
against the idea that the supporters of
Lord Durham are animated by feelings of jealousy and points to instances of warm welcome extended to
American owners and jockeys. So far
as tbe American trainers are concerned, it says, "there was never an unfriendly word used until one. or two
of tbe latest comers were suspected of
'doping' their horses. This is a pun
lsbahle offence in the United States
and ought to be here also." The
Morning l'ost suggests that Lester
Reiff bus not been riding of late with
bis usual confidence. It eulogizes Ma-
her and Jenkins, the latter of whom
has been engaged by Prince Solty-

CHURCHILL AND ROSSLYN.
Further Doings in the Present Little
Unpleasantness.
London, Oct. B0.���The solicitors of
Mr. Winstou Spencer Churchill have
written to the solicitors of the Earl of
Rosslyn declining in the name of Mr.
Churchill to withdraw or apologize
for Mr. Churchill's statement at the
recent banquet of the Pall Mall Club,
that Lord Rosslyn in despatches and
letters from South Africa to English
newspapers had libelled British ollieers and made assertions that were
nothing short of, falsehoods. This
morning Mr. Churchill writes to The
Daily Mail repudiating the suggestion
that he is moved by personal feeling
against Lord Rosslyn, but pointing
out that the Earl is responsible for "a
libellous statement concerning four
famous cavalry regiments."
After saying that if Lord. Rosslyn
will frankly withdraw tlie alleged ll-
bellious statement, he, Mr. Churchill,
will be the first to regret that hard
words have been spoken, he refers
to his actions regarding Lord Ross-
lyn's misleading account of Mr.
Churchill's escape in South Africa,
pointing out that this resulted in the
publishers withdrawing Lord Uoss-
lyn's book from circulation and in
Lord Rosslyn writing to Mr. Churchill
that the passage was not intended in
an offensive sense, and should be expunged in future editions.

MINES AND MINING
Condition of the Industry as it Affects the
Slocan City District-Other Matters of Interest.
Mr. Charles E. Suiitheringale, edi
tor ol the Slocan City Drill, one of
the brightest weeklies iu the interior,
was in Nelson last Saturday. Mr.
Smitherlngale visited The Miner office
and was induced dm ing his leisure
movements to write the following in
regard to Ins camp:
Mining in the Sloean City division
shows a wonderful contrast this fall to
the situation preaviling a year ugo.
This favorable state of affairs is mainly due to the operations of tlie Arlington Mines. Limited, they having
effected many Improvements, which
have had a beneficial effect on the
town and camp. Tho management
has expended a vast sum of money,
but the result is they now have one of
the foremost properties iu the famous
Slocan district. A wagon road has
been limit from the town to the
mine, which has materially assisted
all properties in that section. At the
present time they are putting in a
switch, near the "Y," und arc ercet-
in_ large ore bunkers, so that in future the output of the mine may be
shipped in bulk and in a much cheaper and expeditious manner. A buw-
inill, with ln.liiiu feet per day capacity
lias also been put in to supply the
mine with timber. A telehpone line
lias also been put in, proving of great
utility. At the mine many Improvements are being effected, while about
Inn men ale on the pay roll. The
amount of ore available is large and
the shipments this winter will certainly surprise the public. The values aro also high, and yield a good
profit, W. F. Dubois is the energetic
superintendent, and he has made a
record for himself.
Above the Arlington is the Speculator group, bonded to J. Frank Collolu
for $."1.1,000. Twenty-two men arc
employed there und a groat deal of
work has been done. The vein is the
same as the Arlington and considerable ore, of a high grade,is being taken out. Adjoining it are tho (lertie
R. and Malum group, also under bond
to Mr. Colloin for 171,000 for both
properties. Thou comes the famous
Enterprise, working a fair force, and
shipping steadily, tlelow is the Iron
Horse, just bonded to Spokane parties
for $10,0110. To the west is the Neep-
iiwii, under bond to tho Warner Miller
people for 8.111.olio. These properties
will all work this wiutur and will add
to the good name of the camp.
To the west of the Speculator Is the
Bondholder, under lease to local parties, and il is turning out well, having
made an initial shipment tothe Hall
Mines smelter this week, with line re
suits.
It has helped the camp a great deal.
Added to the large and respectable
list of the shippers is the Two Friends
which is being worked under lease
nnd   bond,    and   getting    much   ore,
The Tamarac, cm Springer, is another
property bonded recently ami is stead
Hy working,with encouraging results,
The number   of   bonds   made    in   the
c.iinip this season has been surprising
and a big advertisement has been giv-
en this district. Capital Is being attracted thither and next season will
bo a hummer. Already the ore ship
incuts from the division for the year
are   in   exeesh   of   1,800   tons,    which
breaks all previous records,
A great deal is expected of the gold
properties on Lemon Creek, where the
Chapleau is located. They have put ill
a wagon road and are now finishing
their stamp mill and tramway. Operations are to commence next month
and its succoss will be the starter of a
boom on the crock. About .Ml men
are employed there. Near the Chapleau Is the Kilo group belonging to
the Warner Miller Syndicate, the lie.
waul Fiaetion, now working under
lease, the Alberta, which has just
made a three ton shipment; tlie I.inh-
hnlt, Rose, etc., etc., all of which
carry high gold values.
Taking all ill all, tlie camp never
lucked as well and was nevei as prosperous. About :ir,0 men will be employed in tlie camp during the winter,
giving a most health, payroll, and
affording    business    for    a   host    of
freighters and packers. Iu the town,
things look well and business is good.
There is no sign of a boom, but there
is the making of a fine town in Sloean. What the people require is Incorporation and sooner or later it will
come, and the sooner the better. The
citizens are proud of their mines and
are hopeful nf a bright future.
��� ��   ���
More extensive development is to be
commenced at once cm tne Commonwealth property, lately bonded by T,
0, Procter, and situated on the wagon road leading from Crawford Bay to
tho Silver Hill mine now being operated by the Richelieu Mining Company. A large amount of supplies
were shipped from Nelson to the property a few days ago, and the working
force is to be increased ut once. Bunk
houses and sheds are to be erected at
once, the work upon which has al-
ready started. Mr. J. 0, Drewery, of
Kossland, has been appointed to conduct the work at the property. Tho
new undertaking was stimulated by
the rich discoveries which of late havo
been made. Picked samples of ore
fiom the vein have been assayed and
gave values of SO in gold, 14.1 ounces
in silver and :H.S; per cent, in copper.
The returns from the shipping ore are
S;t in gold, ,12 ounces silver, and seven
per cent, copper.
��� ���   ��
R. C. Campbell-Johnston, owner of
the Iron Queen group on Rover Creek,
on Saturday last sent a small force
of men io do work on that property.
Tbe group consists of three cluims and
the development work which has already been done upon the property
has uncovered a vein of good ore. Tho
property is an exceedingly good prospect and good resuits am expected in
the near future. Rover Creek l��
nearly opposite Slocan Junction and is
in the same vicinity os 40-Creek.
Many claims have been staked there
during tlie past season and much development work has been done on the
older claims. Among some of the
promising claims are the Leap Year,
now being operated by a Rossland
Company, the Drummer and Whitewater in which M.S. Davys has a controlling interest. Judging from tho
present conditions the properties on
Rover Creek will prove to be equally
ns rich us the other mining sections
of the Nelson milling district.

A Liberal leader will not allow
himself to bo pinned down to any
opinion he may have expressed in the
past, lle may at one time have de
clared for absolute free trade; he may
have said the public expenditure
was too yi-eut by several millions and
that he and bis party would reduce it;
but accuse him of these now, and he
will twist and squirm and deny and
assure you with beautiful confidence
that conditions have changed and
that what was one thing yesterday is
Unite another thing today. But these
Liberals cannot play any such tricks
with their platform, formally and solemnly adopted in convention and given out as embodying the principles on
which they appealed to the people. A
prominent feature of that platform is
a paragraph beginning,"We denounce
the principle of protection as radically unsound and unjust to the
masses of the people." There can be
no doubt what this means or was intended to mean. The leaders in convention assembled declnred that the
principle of protection was wrong,and
promised that if given the power they
would crush the life out of it and
make tiade free.
It would be an easy matter to support this declaration with quotations
from iiiiiii;, speeches. Throughout
the campaign of 18.11 the leaders
everywhere denounced protection and
appealed for Votes on the strength of
their hostility to it. Take Sir Richard C'artwright as an example, who at
that time was the financial and fiscal
authority of his party: "Strike the
shackles from the limbs of the people.
They need no protective coddling;
they can hold their own against the
world. I oppose protection in all its
aspect, because protection means slavery, because protection means corrup-
I i. "il. because protection is arrant
folly, and 1 am bound to oppose such
an unholy trinity until I die." Sir
Oliver Mowat, Mr. David Mills, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, Mr. l'aterson, Mr.
Muloclc, every leader in fact, whose
opinion was supposed to carry weight
wns equally pronounced in denouncing protection and promising to reform it out of existence. Hut these
quotations are not necessary, and besides the leaders with unblanchcd
laces stand up and repudiate them.
They cannot do this with the tariff
plank of their platform ; that is engraven in stone and cannot be rubbed
out.
The country hns been deceived by
the Liberal Government. They promised to eliminate the principle of protection, and to fall back on a revenue
tariff until such times as we could
prepare tor* free trade. If it were a
mistake in judgment and they admitted their error the country might ex-
CUSU them. Hut they are not frank
enough for admissions. They profess
still to oppose protection, and by all
sorts of subterfuges endeavor to conceal the fact, that they maintain it as
rigorously as tlie party that adopted
it. They are acting the pa't of hypocrites. In fact, they have reduced
their party to a condition of organised
hyl risy.    They   have   broken   faith
witli thu country, and are using all
their arts to deceive It a second time.
The   | pie   cannot   desire   to havo a
tlovernment.of that kind continue in
power. It they deceived once they
will deceive again. And they are so
Shameless in their deception that it is
Impossible to put trust in anything
they promise, The electors of Yale-
Cariboo can only return one vote
against them, but if true to themselves and tlie Country they will make
sure of doing that much by sending
.Mr. MacNcill to Ottawa.
Mr. Walter Mathesoli, of Helena,
writes to suy, in correction of a paragraph that appeared in The Miner a
silent timc ago. that the Labor candi
elate in Yale-Cariboo is not a son of
the late Hon. M.  II. Foley,    who   was
Postmaster-General in the Brown-
Dorlon   Government,    lle  adds  that
there is no relationship whatever. We
rather from his communication that
.Mr. lliilhcsou gets his Information
from Mr, Ucruard II, Foley, a  son  of
the late Canadian statesman, who Ib a
resident of Helena and a candidate on
the Democratic ticket for Public Administrate! of .Montana.
Mr. John Charlton says "it would
have done no harm" if an effort had
been made to obtain some concession
in return for our preferential on liritisli goods, and that if returned to Parliament ho will urge the opening of
negotiations to that end. That is the
right stand to take; the sensible,
the reasonable stand. Sir Wilfrid, the
rich, the powerful, the beneficent,
went over to England and threw the
preferential at the heads of the British people, telling them to accept it as
a present; Canadians were too generous to ask for anything in return.
Mr. Charlton's view of the matter is
much the saner one.
The Local Government is urged to
give a free band to railway promoters,
by passing a general aet to allow
them to build anywhere without special legislation. With this privilege
they will build all the railways re
quired in the southern portion of the
Province, without a dollar or an acre
of land from the public. We know
from long experience that it would be
useless to hope for this. It is said
further that iu the less settled north
end a land grant might be made, the
(lovernment retaining control of rates
for both passengers and freight. No
company of men in Canada could be
got to undertake the operation of a
railway on that condition, and to suppose so is to display a very superficial
knowledge of the situation.
An English barrister, Mr. Lisle,
is down from Dawson, where
he has resided for two years.
Ue more than confirms all the
charges Sir llibbert Tupper has
made against the administration
in that district. lie says the conditions there are a disgrace to a British
community, the majority of tho officials being both incompetent and
corrupt. Mr. Lisle will have to suffer
for this, by being called a great many
very hard names. That is the regular procedure under Mr. Sifton���to
blacken the character of any man who
dares bear witnesB to corruption In
the Y u lo mi. It is not so easy to dispose of the people, however, and
they had the courage a short time
ago to elect two members to the
Council who believed the administration was bad and said so. There Is
no doubt that politically the Yukon
lias been one of the fouleBt spots on
earth ever since Mr.^ Sifton got his
hands upon it.

BEYOND EBAOH OF SYMPATI1
Prostrate Veteran Killed a Brother in
Battle and Would Not Forget.
He was a veteran of the Mexican
���war and had served hia time In the
18th Pennsylvania during the civil
war. lie had fought at Hull Run and
Appomattox, but the hospitality hud
overcome him.
Oray-haired and grizzled he reclined in an alley east of the Chamber of
Commerce building, with his head
resting upon a hard stone step, unconscious of the sympathetic passers-
by, who stoppeil to gaze upon his forlorn and dilapiated figure. A coin-
raile came along, and attracted oy the
badge upon his breast, stopped to assist him. "Come, comrade, this Is no
place for you; get up and come with
me.''
"We are not lighting now; the
lighting is all over; let ine rest; I am
only resting after tho buttle," was
the mumbled reply.
"Yes, I know the battles arc over,
comrade, hut think of the disgrace of
sleeping on duty."
"On duty, say you'.' On duty? Are
we then still on duty? Are there buttles yet to be fought'."' Antl he
straightened up his aged frame and
looked his comrade in the eyes.
"Yes, comrade, the battle of self-
respect, the battle with that greatest,
of enemies, rum."
"Rum, say you. I have no battle to
fight with rum. Rum is my friend ; it
enables me to forget.''
"To forget! Why do you want to
forget the glories of the battles in
which you played so important a
part'.'"
"Why do 1 want to forget'.' Why
do 1 want to forget? Because my
brother fought on the other side, and
at the battle of Appomattox we met
face to face, aud I killed him."
''Good tlod,comrade! Is that true?"
"As true as 1 lie here an object of
pity for the populace of this great
city.''
"Forgive me, comrade ; there are
some things that God only can appreciate.    1 will let  you rest."
The gray bead again dropped upon
tbe hard stone step, and the sympathetic comrade who had stopped to
aid the fallen ono pursued his way to
his hotel, where he related the experience to the companion of his
youtii.���Chicago News.
Tho    Anti-Malarial  Campaign   in
Rome.���The Rod Cross Society reports
that during the lirst period (from
July 1 to July 281 of the experiments
now being carried on under its auspices in the Agro-Romano, 30 patients
were conveyed to Home or elsewhere
by the seven ambulances engaged iu
the work. From July 94 to August
15th, ill patients were so transported.
The medical ollieers attached to the
ambulances attended during the lirst
period 880 patients, of whom MS were
suffering from maluiia, and during
the second period 8.3 patients, of
whom 801 were malarial. In spite of
the notoriously unhealthy condition
of the localities in which'the ambulances are stationed, no single member of the staff, either among the
medical Men or attendants bad contracted fever during these^two periods. The immunity thus enjoyed by
the members of the mission is ascribed to the precautions adopted liy the
municipality lor preventing the entrance of mosquitoes to the rooms in
which the men sleep, and is regarded
us a further confirmation of the correctness of the mosquito theory of
���alaris iufeetiou.
"During the storming of San Juan
Hill," says liov. Roosevelt,"! was requested by one of my men to betake
myself   to   the   very   hottest  region.
"There wus a young fellow from
Arizona���Busby by name���who wus
shot strnight across the top of tbe
head. 1 happened to overtake him and
saw by the way the blood was streaming down his face that he was in no
condition to stay in the front. Riding up to his side 1 tapped him on the
arm and said, 'You go   to   the   rear.'
"Well, 1 never forgot the face that
fellow turned toward ine," said the
Governor. "It was one mass of blood,
and this added horrible fierceness to
the look he gave me.
" 'You go to h���1,' he said, as he
Btruck out on a run up the hill.
"I couldn't forget such a fellow,
and I got him a commission in the
regular army. He is now iu the Philippines."

DOINGS IN COIIHT.
Wat,
iland vs. Greenwood Caso (Joes
to the Jury.
The third week of the fall session of
the Supreme Court whloh is being held
in Kelson opened at the court house
al l" o'clock this morning. Before
the case of Waterland vs. Greenwood,
which has been before the court since
Friday morning, was resumed, two
prisoners   from   the    Provincial   jail
were brought up for election. The
first was Ksram Wallace alias J. A.
Skeets, who was charged with theft
rcuu tne Dominion Express Company
and he will he given a speedy trial.
The next to come up was William
Harris, of Slocan City, a miner who
is charged with attempting to take
his own life by firing a bullet into his
breast near his heart, tho attempt
proving unsuccessful. As bis attorney
was not ready to carry on the case it
was remanded Indefinitely. Harris
was brought to the jail late Saturday
afternoon from New Denver where he
had been confined iu the hospital, being arrested on bis recovery.
The case of Waterland vs. Greenwood
was then continued, und ut the close
of the morning session the entire evidence bail been received and the case
went to the jury this afternoon.
C. H. Norris, a contractor, in giving his evidence told of the uature of
Waterland's property in relation to
the course of the creek. IL M. Kecfer,
a photographer, also gave evidence,
and produced a photograph which he
hail of the property during the time
that the creek overflowed. Mr. Holt,
of Greenwood, a building contractor,
was the last to give evidence and he
told of the amount of damages done to
the buildings and property. The counsel for the plaintiff and defendant
then addressed the jury.
MR. TAYLOR HOME.
Says Liberals in tbe   East Are Sure of
Victory.
Mr. S. S. Taylor, li. C., returned
to Nelson last evening from his eastern trip, during which time he visited
Ottawa in eonneetion with the case of
the Merchants' Bunk of Halifax, vs.
Houston and Ward. Owing to the
continued illness of Chief Justice
Strong the ease was postponed until
tbe spring session of the Supreme
Court.
During his absence from Nelson Mr.
Taylor crossed the continent twice
going from Vancouver on the west to
St. John in the east. In summing up
the political situation of the east Mr.
Taylor said :
"The Conservatives of New Hruns-
wick admit that the Liberals will
take II seats out of the 14 in that
Province. In Nova Scotia the Liber
uls will wi>. tbe mujority of seats
but the Conservatives are equally as
wire of such ft victory. Very little is
known as to how the campaign will
go on Prince Edward Island. In the
Province of Quebec the combined in
lluence of Laurier und Tarte is sweeping the Province from one end to the
other. In Ontario the light is being
conducted with the utmost zeal by
both parties. It is absolutely impossible to suy what the result will be in
any one constituency. In Manitoba
the interest is centering around the
Sifton and MacDonuld light at Brandon. "
It is needless to add that Mr. Taylor, himself, is a Liberal.
LIME   FOIt SMETLER.
It Will Probably He Supplied Hy the
Mansfield  Co.
The management of tbe Hall Mines
Smelter are negotiating with Mr. Ernest Munstield. of the Mansfield Hrick
und Lime Co.,for the supply of a large
quantity of lime and limestone to be
used by the smelter for Iluxing purposes.
If the order is placed, it will mean
that u much larger force of men than
is at present engaged will be put to
work, and thut operations will be
rushed throughout the winter, which
lias not hitherto been done during
that season of the year. In addition
two new kilns will be constructed at
the quarry and a large force of men
will be engaged in getting out. wood.
TO A CONVENT DOG.
Considerable human interest is being found by tbe Italian press in the
ceremonies that recently attended the
erection of a monument on the Mountain of St. Bernard to the mcinor}' of
a famous dog belonging to the convent
there. Hurry wus the dog's name,
and in ten years be saved the lives of
forty persons who hud lost their   way
ou the glaciers of Mount st. Bernard.
What is considered his most remarkable achievement was performed about
three years ago,when he found a child
ten years old lying in the snow under
the iniluenee of the fatal slumber
which precedes death, Harry with
curious comprehension of the needs of
the situation, lirst warmed the child
with his breath, and then amused it
from sleep by licking its face. This
much accomplished, Hurry, by lying
lown by its side, gave the child an
ibvlous Invitation to get on and ride.
The child did so. uml was curried by
Barry lo the convent. This episode,
like his other achievements, is recorded at the convent, and to tho truth of
its circumstances several witnesses
have subscribed.
The death of the (J0g was due to
the timidity or rascality of some unknown man who  perhaps fancied that

Harry was approaching him with evil
intent. The stranger killed the dog by
hitting him on the heud. These two
events in tho career of the useful animal are Commemorated on the monument which represents in huso relief
the St. Bernard currying a child on
its back, while underneath in tbe following inscription: "Harry, tho Heroic, Saved the Lives of Forty Persons
and Was Killed by the Forty-first."
THE CANADIAN MINT,
What     the   Finance     Minister   Said
About its   Establishment.
In making his announcement about
the establishment of a Canadian mint,
Hon. W. S. Fielding, Finance Minister, spoke as follows:
'For isome time there bus been an
agitation in favor i f a Canadian
mint, partly for commercial reasons,
partly for sentimental reasons, for the
coinnge of gold. There is a material
argument that trade follows the Hug,
and it is said that when Canadian
gold is taken from Yukon to the United States mint, trade follows in its
course.
"I am not prepared to suy that the
argument is entirely well founded.
Then there is the sentimental reason,
and it is a mutter of pride to mint our
own gold. Wc huve thought a Canadian mint pure und simple would not
do. We have gold currency, but in
reality there is little of it in circulation. If we go to the bunk we do not
ask for gold, but for paper, which is
guaranteed by gold. We felt that all
the gold needed in Canada would not
take up ull tbe time of tho mint, and
therefore negotiated for the establishment here of a branch of the royal
mint of Greut Britain.
"We huve obtuined the consent of
Her Majesty's Government to establish a branch mint which will make
not only our own coins, but also
British sovereigns, which are current
the world over. We anticipate at the
next session of Parliament to establish assay offices ut convenient points
so that the gold turned into the Canadian mint can be made into Canadian coins, and in addition, Hritish
sovereigns, known all over the
world."
AN ELECTIONEERING STORY.
A true anecdote of the old election
days, which Mr. Gladstone used to
relate, will perhaps bear re-telling at
the moment.
At the celebrated election In 1805, at
which Mr. Gladstone lost his seat for
Oxford University���becoming, to use
bis own phrase,"unmuzzled"���his opponent was Mr. Guthorne Hardy.
The practice at a contested election
was for each elector to record his vote
by word of mouth before tellers for
each party.
The late Professor Henry Smith was
acting as teller for Mr. Gladstone,
when an uncouth country clergyman
entered and to the usual request for
whom he wished to record his vote,
replied, in bis confusion, "I vote for
Mr. Glad���1 mean for 'Ardy. "
"I claim that vote," quietly put in
Professor Henry Smith.
"No, no," protested the clergyman;
"I did not finish the name." "Quite
so; but you did not even begin the
other," retorted the Professor.
The Rossland Miner Bays: Mr. M
S. Logan has returned from a visit to
the Juno mine in the Nelson division
Mr. Logan reports that the Juno is
looking well. The tunnel is in 12
feet, and there is a foot of ore, which
is gradually increasing in width, and
it is expected that it will widen out
soon to the full width of the tunnel.
A FIENDISH   ATTACK.
