A Large Psrta Visit Ssndon and Are
Faoorsbltj Impressed.
Sandon was visited , last Saturday
by an aggregation of capital from
Eastern Canada. The party included Sir Charles Tupper of Ottawa,
Sir William C. Van Horn of Montreal, P. Ashworth of London, Eng.,
J. H. Susman, R. B. Angus, E.
Clouston and James Ross of Montreal, Z. A. Hamilton and W. B.
Lippman of Winnipeg. The party
represent millions, and were favorably impressed with what they
learned of the mineral wealth of Slocan.
Sir William Van Home, president
of the C.P.R., said his company
was fully alive to the future possibilities of this section, and would
spare no expense in giving shipping
facilities to every part of Slocan. He
would not confine himself to any
definite project, but said it was Uie
company's intention to have a line
from Robson to the Fraser river,
through Rossland aud the Boundary
country, as soon as possible. He had
no intention of buying the Kaslo A
Slocan railway, but needed improvements would be built at Sancton as
soon ss matters in dispute could be

some figures of Sandon's mines that
surprised them* and it is safe to say
that their influence will be favorable for inducing capital to these

cisl to the Times lYom Ottawa says:
In the supreme court today an appeal against the constitutionality of
the Chinese underground exclusion
act of British Columbia was thrown
out. The court held thst it bas no
jurisdiction. This decision sustains
the net. The endeavor to quash the
set wss made by parties who desire
to replace white miners with Chinamen. Tbey were opposed by the

Who Km* Fred Rioette?
The following letter has heen received by John Buckley, proprietor
It snows a

of the Clifton house,
mother's longing for her boy, and
should remind many sons of the psin
and worry they cause at home by
neglecting to write. Its pathos is
intense. Any one who Is able to aid
this mother will do so at once:
Sand Lake, October 6.
Dear Sir: You will see I have
taken the opportunity to write you
once more ana hope it will not bother yon, but! want to know if yon
know what has become of Fred Ri-
vette. Please let me know and
oblige his mother. It worries me so
I can't sleep at nights. It is seven
months since I last heard from him.
He wrote the 8th of March snd he
was then In Kaslo, B. C, and he
told me not to worry and he wonld
write once every two months. I answered it and nave not heard from
him since. I have written to the
postmaster and to Adams Bros., and
received letters from them both, saying that Fred had been there some,
time ago, but could not And ont
where tie wss now.
I tell my husband that I know be
is dead, for if he was not he would
write to me, as he knows bow I worry for him. So, tf yon know where
he Is, or know any one in your town
that does, please let me know, snd
please see tbe postmaster of your
town and see if he has any mall
there. My folks think he has gone
to Klondike, bnt if he hss he never
will live to get there, and I don't
think he would start alone without
he had friends to go with from Ssndon or Kaslo. Please let me know
if we can get mail from Klondike.
They say here we can't, only once
in six months. How far Is it from
British Columbia.
Please let me know something
about him, if yon know anything;
if he is dead or anything else tbat
may have happened to him. If any
one from your town knows what has
become of him I would be pleased to
hear from them, for Fred is missed
in our home, and the longer he is
gone tne worse I feel I miss him.
The 4th of tfcis month was his birthday; be wss 25 years old.
I wiil close, and hope to bear from
ou, and many thanks forthctrou-
le I make yon, from
Mas. Joe Rivette,
Kent 00. Sand Lake, Mich.
Box 2.
P. B.���Now, If yon know bow to
find him, please do snd oblige Mrs.
Rivette, snd we will pay yon for
your trouble. I hope to hear from
yon. I think I will, for I see by his
letter he knew more people in Ban.
don than he did in Kaslo. I wrote
to my bnHher in Aberdeen, Wasb.,
to see if he knew where Fred was,
and he wrote to Kaslo, buteaild not
hear from him. How far ii Sandon
from Aberdeen, Wash? If yen ever
go there call on my brother; his
nameisCharUe Delta*, and if you
ever come to Michigan call on us.

A boot iitcorpocsuon.
Manv inquiries are being made
about the matter of inooniorsUng
Ssndon. M. L. Grimmett, who Is
acting for the committee, recently
explained how tbe question stands.
He said all the papers were now in,
and the matter rests, with the gov
ernmsnt. There will probably be
no action taken before the tirst of
the year. If the city was incorpor
atetl now and officers elected, they
could only hold ontee till the end of
this year, and then a new set of oul-
oers would have to be elected. The
expense of two elections so close together would not be advisable, and
the government will probably so
consider it.
Report on the temeroalaa.
J. R. Cavnrasron with G. D. Turner,
the well known mining engineer and
manager of the Wakefield mine oo
Four Mile, returned from Lemon
creek this Week, where they went to
look over the Cameronian group.
They report the outlook very bright.
One hundred tons of ore are now on
the dump, and 500 tons blocked out
in the tunnel. A rawhide trail Is
finished from the mine to Slocan
City, snd as soon as snoweomes
shipping will commence. The Iron
is being laid on the railroad to Nelson, ind a rste of tlS.65 for freight

Ijodon, Oct. 1H ���The British cabinet
this morning held its first snntial meet
ing st ths foreign office. Premier
Ssllsbnry preaidetl, snd all the ministers except Lord James, chancellor
duchy of Lancsster; Viscount Cross,
lord privy seal, snd Mr. Walter Long,
president of the board of agriculture,
were Ih attendance. The i meeting
lasted tiro hours.
It Is underatood :the question of reopening the Indian mints for tbe free
eoinsge of silver was not decided, but
the matter was discussed and will shortly form the subject of farther communication between the chancellor of the
exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks Beach,
and the United States monetary cout-
iiiiseiou. It is believed the Britiah government has reached a decision not to
enter into the international monetary
conference. Further meetings with the
American commissioners will be held
simnly because they have been previously arranged, as cabled last week.
Metiaages received from theAtnerican
commission say they have -received no
information with regard to the action
taken at the cabinet council today, but
they hear thst s statement will be
issued next week to the effect that the
government will make no suggestions
to the Bank of England as to anv alteration of its present reserve. The government can not in any cent do more
than make a recommendation to the
hank, so the statement that the cabinet
had decided that the bank should maintain a full gold standard is incorrect.
sKsiornnAi. srATaatKtr.
Tlie press association sends out the
following semi-official statement to
"Tbe cabinet considered the-nihject
in pursuance of tbe |��le*lges given In
their name by Mr. A. J. Balfour, first
lord of the treasury, and Sir Michael
Hicks-Beaeh, chancellor of the exchequer, in the house of commons, when thi*
resolution favoring co-operation lu
securing a stable monetary par exchange between gold and 'silver waa
passed Tbe chancellor of the excheou ���
er and his colleagues still maintain the
position then taken, that the govern
meat can not alter the gold stamlartl in
the United Kingdom. But they have
in the interval consulted the'Indian
government with regard to the opening
of the Indian mints, snd a reply haa
been received which it is underattMKl la
strongly -adverse to the pt-opoaal. Owing lo the difficulties raised in India
and the opposition in other quarter*,
tbe cabinet felt thst they are unable to
give an immediate understanding in
regard to tbe Indian mints, In the?
are apparently not itidfcpoaed to enter
into further negotiations, and it is expected that aa the outcome of todav's
ct.hinet council the United State* com
misaiouers will shortly have another
interview with Sir Michael Hicka-lteach
and that diplomatic communication*
will he eontinoed with the foreign powers more immediately concerned in tbe
rehabilitation of -diver."*
������Against this the city nf Lsneaahire
weighs with its millions of workers; alt
weu disciplined,  raising  a   **rnssde!
agaiust what they termed the *t��tlbhne*ts j
ofthe London bankers, who asrotned!

is really an imperinl   question, and!

Loxiatx. Oct. 17.���The Sunday Times,
in a review of the bimetallic agreement
sayg: 'it is sn open secret that when
England waa asked to Join the bimetallic agreement the government replied
thst public opinion did not favor anv
alteration of the basis of England's currency, but having an overwhelming
interest in seeing a monetary peace
establish**! in the world.it would fie
glad to assist in the good work, and
basing its action on the resolution unanimously panned by the house of commons offers, which sll the liberal
membera of the government of Mr.
Gladstone offered before now regarding
silver In the bank reserve and the
opening of the India mints on certain
conditions. On this promise Mr. Wolcott
set to work. His chances of aurceas
seemed almost hopeless, bnt he succeeded in obtaining tho promise of
France and the United States to cooperate by opening their mini* to ailver. In both respects the unexpected
happened. The city revolted, tltankt*
to the letter published at the time, and
egged by artful newspaper comments,
an outcry was raised which rt-aulted,
first, in a meeting of the clearing houae
hankers, snd next, in s petition to i
the chancellor of tho exchequer. In!
spite of sll this uproar, we do not think
the protest has much Inffnenee. It has
clearly bore ths influence of elate ideas '
thst the government, whose duty It is
to safeguard the interest* of the whole,
was not duly Impresaed.

Hers Is a chance for energetic,
money-making Canadians. Just at
this time when so many sdventnroos
men are leafing Canada for the
Klondike, willing to rlsh their lives
in a country of iceben*rs, desolation
and darkness, fbr tha sake of a band-
ful of gold dust, the cry comes from
the southern seas, where grow
citrus and tropical fruits of all kinds,
oranges, bananas, oocoanots, etc., snd
where life would be spent in comparative ease and luxury, in the shsde
ofthe overepresding pslm tree, fbr
men of brain and enterprise logo
there and pat their minds and skill
to work In developing that country's
wonderftil resources. The results,
it is promised, wonld be very remunerative.
The British Honduras Mercury of
Sept 23, makes the following pies:
" British Honduras sends greeting
to her brethren and fellow subjects
in Canada. Csnsdiana British Hon
dureans want to shake hands with
you. Let us finl oat whether we
cannot be of matual use to earth other.
We have tots of mahogany, logwood
ai.d other useful hard tropical woods
Wears overburdened with tropical
fruits of all kinds, oranges, citrus
fruits, bananas, plantains, cocoa,
cocoanuts, etc
���We import per year $80,000 worth
rfbeef aod pork; $76,231 worth of
flour; $6,000 worth of potatoes etc.:
$84,000 worth of sawn lamber, ana
innumerable other articles tbat Canada can supply.
"Oar wants are increasing rapidly
in many respects. We have a perennial summer, a climate well tutted
to Eoiofjeans, not so hot in any part
ot the year as tt Is sometimes *n the
north. We want some of your mental
tonics. Please come and see what
we sre worth. Some of as wbo know
Canada from the Atlantic to the Pacific can assure you of a profitable
welcome. Now, we with fbr enterprising and money-making Canadians. If some of your breezy*
northern ozone can be driven Into
our mental faculties without using a
tomahawk we would be very glad.'
tion the St. James' Gsaette exposes
Uncle Ssrn's little gsrae.   It says:
There will be a feeling of relief
that Great Britain, in behalf of Can-
ads, has finally declined to wslk into
the trap which was being arranged
at Washington. America has never
paid the damages for ths illeged
aeiiures of Canadian sealers, and has
exhausted every diplomatic artifice
to evade the award, finally demanding a fresh conference, The Marquis
of Salisbury consented, whereupon
America calmly proposed that Russia
and Japan should have seats at the
conference with the obvious intention
of outvoting Englsnd and upsetting
by a side wind tbe Psris award.**
The Globe, commenting on the
same question, does not wsste sny
words in condemning the policy of
the United States, and at the tame
time speaks very highly of Csnada.
As a mere matter of business, it is
time that a firm check was put upon
the policy ot the United States In dealing with this country. There is no
cause to adopt tbe theory thst the
Marquis ot Sslisbury slmoef regretfully refuses to participate. In the
interettsof Csnada it It well to let
the United Sutes understand thst no
settlement of the question will satisfy
Britain which sacrifices a Jot or a
tlth ot the just and euuitabie fights of
the loyal Dominion ��� f Canada.

E>id tweatv franc pieces did not cireu*

government cannot issue any order
relative to thc bank's reserve. At
the same ttme tiie government is the
bank's boat customer, and the court
of Pernors being composed of Is w-
sbiding citizens, whenever the government makes a request we do our
best to comply. Tne government
must be presumed to know what is
best for the country.
"Tiie press has been filled with
misstatements. , The government
wss asking if the bank was willing
to renew its ofler made at the Paris
mooetary conference in 1881 regarding its reserve. I replied in the
same tenor ss the memorandum
which tbe banks told the conference,
though more guardedly. That is
all that happened. The statement
that the bank has been cooneUing
with the American eommla*ioners &
Kre rubbish. - Excepting what I
ve read in the papers, I hsve
-never beard of these gentlemen.''
The United States monetary com-
missioners have received no official
Information of the action taken bv
the British cabinet Saturday. Private advices, however, convince
them that the cabinet hss dealt a
death blow to their mission.
It is expected thst the commissioners wilt shortly be informed that her
majesty's government regrets being
unable to secede to their proposals,
but is willing to listen to any .other
plan that may suggest. Both parties to the conference know that no
other tpractfeal scheme can be advanced.
The commissioners believe their
failure means that no farther effort
for bimetallism will be made for
many years to come. They attrlb
ute their failure to the opfmsf tion of
the bankers- and of the London
limes. Until these forces were
aroused all signs pointed to tbe cooperation ofthe British government.

meekly handed to his honor. The

After a few minor interrogations as
to his age, etc., he proceeded as foi-

The young man, though evidently
greatly surprised, faltered an affirmative answer, whereupon his honor
turned to the blushinjr fslr one and
inquired in a mechanical, stotracted
manner, "young lady, do you take
this man as your lawful husband,

Keceiving a faltering **yes shr,** the

them to a statement that this was
their own "free and voluntary act
and deed for the purposes therein
mentioned," fined them 15 and ordered the constable to set the prisoners free.
