The Fire Tomer.
Some people have asked why work

tower affords.

Annual Meeting of Ihe Stockholders ia Spokane.
The following report is taken from
Tuesday's Si��ltesman-Review:
The annual stockholders' meeting
of the Rambler-Cariboo Consolidated
Gold and Silver Mining company
was held at thc office of the company in this city yesterday. The following directors were elected for the
ensuing vear: J. B. McArthur,
Richard Snca, A. L. McClaine, J. J.
Humphreys, Lake D. Wolford. At
a directors' meeting the following
officers were elected: J. B. McArthur, president; J. J. Humphreys,
vice president; A. L. McClaine, secretary and treasurer; Richard Shea,
general manager.
"The company since the last meeting of the stockholders has purchased and placed in operation a
steam plant with three Burleigh
drills, pumps, hoist and other machinery," said General Manager
Shea. ' "It has completed a wagon
road front McGuigan siding, on the
Kasdo-Sloean railroad, to the mine
at an expense of QlWb\ and built
spacious bunk and store houses, including ore houses and boiler room.
A large part of the summer season
has been occupied in development
work, which insures heavy shipments during the late fall and winter.
"The outlook at thc mine is extremely promising. Within 20 davs
a long'crosscut tunnel will no doubt
have stoped the lead at a vertical
depth of 400 feet. A winze is being
sunk in the ore chute from the lower
drift, which at a depth of about 200
feet from the surface shows the ore
stronger than at any point heretofore prospected above."
The Rambler-Cariboo company
has paid $10,000 in dividends tlie
past year, and Manager Shea said
yesterday that additional dividends
will be paid the coming winter, and
will follow nionthlv.

Withdrawal of the Yellow  Metal
Causes Siloer Talk.
New York, Oct. 5. -A special
cablegram from London to the Ev-
enirig Post fays:
"There is * increasing interest in
the city and some concern as to the
Erobable nature of Sir Michael
ficks-Beach's coming reply to the
United States bimetallic commission
as to the use of silver. Some persons go so far as to assert that, subject to certain conditions, three points
may be conceded, namely: A reopening of the Indian mints, tlie
holding of one-fifth silver in tbe
Bank of England reserve, and the
raising of legal tender silver from
��2 to ��b. Such assertions may be
premature, and even incorrect, but
they came from too good a quarter
to be wholly ignored.
"Bar ��old was bought in small
amounts in the chief market here today, and the general belief is that it
is destined for America. The demand for gold for this purpose
threatened the withdrawal of eagles
from the Bank of England at one
time today. There were small pur*
chases of gold in the open market today for New York. This Is not generally known. Every one says the
demand Is for the continent. Asa
matter of fact, Germany is the principal buyer today, but New York
was a buyer also. I can not discover any actual engagements from Pa-
went" to Cariboo creek last week to
look over some properties. After
the business was finished, they concluded to try for some of the speckled beauties In the stream. Every
inducement was offered for the fish
to take tlie hook without success,
and finally Clark went up the ereek
to chase them down, while Atlanta
crawled out on a log to catch them
in his hat. lie made a dive for the
first one that came along, the log
turned and Adams droiiped onto the
fish, but missed it. W hen he got
out of the water the desire for fish
was gone.

SANDON,   B.    C,', OCT. 9,  1897.
It Is a deplorable Act tbat the
press ol Canada, and the people generally, do not take the pains to understand the financial question better
than they do, and in this connection
also tbe sad condition of their country.
Our Canadian press is ever ready to
discuss this important question as relating to other countries, but tbey
refuse to consider it in connection
with their own country. Our people
are free to criticise the action, or nonaction, of 4he people of other lands
relating to t*��e question, at the same
time forgetting tbat Canada has
suffered as much if not more than any
other nation from the accursed gold
It first must be conceded that Canada is great and rich enough in her
partly developed resources to at least
keep down her national debt. This
can hardly be denied. And yet, if
we are to believe tbe most reliable
Canadian statistics, our national debt
has increased more than two-fold
since 1875, or, to be more explicit, in
twenty years from 1875 to 1895, it
has grown from $151,663,401 to the
enormous sum of $318,018,754, and
yet during this time Canada has paid
as interest on tbe debt more than
$l7Q,00O,O0a During this time the
value of her imports decreased from
$123,070,283 in 1875 to$llO,781,G82
id 1895, or nearly thirteen millions,
and her exports increased in value
frnm $77,886,979 in 1875, to $113.-
638,808 in 1895. or in round numbers,
thirty-five mill ions.
It does not seem -credible that
while her exports increased so enor-
moualy trom year to year, and her
paying facilities so improved, Canada
should go deeper and deeper In debt
as the years roll on. yet the average
yearly increase has been about eight
millions Bnt this Is readily accounted fbr when we look at the seat of
the trouble. It will be found tn her
effort to maintain the single gold
standard, or, rather, not so much her
effort to maintain, but in ber neglect
In not having a double or more liberal
standard of her own and therefore
being compelled to abide by tbe mandates ot the great money kings.
It can be readily*seen how the
false and narrow policy acts against
Canada and In the interest of a foreign power, and iu saying this we do
not mean tbe Mother Country as a
nation,  bnt the combined
upon England for her silver and the
United States for her gold. She cannot coin even the money metals found
in her hills. Her metal money It
limited to what the money power
chooses to make, and Canada is too
rich a field tor its operations to be
allowed a sufficient supply of standard coin to enible her to keep down
tbe ever increasing debt.
Canada's gold supply being $14,-
000,000 only, and the amount now
required yearly to pay tbe interest
on ber debt being more than $10,-
500,000 it would not leave her much to
operate on if it could be annually
used for tbat purpose. Bnt sueh cannot be the ease for something must
be held in reserve to protect tbe $50,-
000,000 uncovered paper floating
about the oountry as money.
With this before as is it not easily
seen how vitally important it is that
Canada provides for herself a money
coined at home In sufficient quantity
to admit of her doing business without going in debt year after year to
the tune of eight millions of dollars?
It is readily seen bow dangerous it ta
for her to continue on ber debt increasing course.
The London Times stated the ease
plainly in Its issue of July 26, 1*496*
We reproduce its words of warning:
"If the single gold standard can be
forced upon South America and Asia,
as it haa been since 1873 forced on
North America and Europe, gold
must Inevitably appreciate to at least
four times its present absurd value,
or to put It otherwise, commodities
must decline to one fourth tbe present
price, and labor all tbe world over
be crucified as it was never crucified
before���In days of mediaeval serfdom
or even chattel slavery. Such Is tlie
contest. If tbe money lords can force
monometallism upon the whole world,
they will succeed In establishing the
most gigantic money aristocracy
among the rich, and the wont system of peonage serfdom among the
masses that has ever cursed the hapless sons of men."

A powerful American syndicate,
headed by Mr. J. D. Rockefeller, Is
at present endeavoring to corner the
nickel mines of Ontario. The attraction to the monoply mongers Is the
anticipation that Britian will utilize
the output of tbe mines for armor-plating. Prof. Roberts-Austen, the British aasayer; who is now in Canada,
has undertaken a series of experiments with nickel, and If be reports
that they demonstrate tbe ability of
the metal to with stand heavy guns,
It Is thought certain that tbe Admiralty wHI make use of It The onlv
present obstacle to tbe newly-formrd
syndicate s-x-uring control of the
mines Is that some of the present
owners are asking higher figures
than the purchasers will agree to.
The resources at the command of Mr.
Rockefeller are practically limitless,
and the owners feel confident in
money standing out for liberal terma
power ot tie world tbat has its head]   T, _���*., _,,��_,���,���,������*   ���._.   AM..A

Cariboo Agala the Hcene of a t'oualdcr-
aate MialBg Baeltatnawt.
Clarence Coulter, who left Ashcroft,
B.C., Saturday night, brings news of a
very rich strike made on Willow river,
about fifteen or twenty miles from Bar*
kerville, in the old Cariboo district,
which created almost as much furore
among mining men in the W* as does
the inaccessible Klondike now, says the
P.l. The strike was made in boilrock
by a Mr. Laird, formerly of Chicago,
and a member of the publishing house
of Laird & Lee.
"I have no personal information of
the matter.*' said Mr. Coulter at hit*
home last evening, "inasmuch aa 1
have no acquaintance with Mr. Laird
and have never visited hia propertv,
but all Ashcroft was talking of it when
I left* and from what I know of the
country I am aatiaticd Mr. Laird haa a
proposition worth many hundreds of
thousands of dollars to him.
"Iaeaving the Canadian Pacinc railroad at Aaheroft, it is 2_W miles to
Queanelle and 85 miles from Uiere to
fiarkerville, all the wav on an excellent
government road, which the bicvclbt*
travel with eaae. Fifteen or twentv
miles to the northwest of Barker ville is
a little stream called Mosquito creek,
which runs into Willow river, and it is
here Mr. l_aird has made hia find: for
he has found something, and something
���>lg~psy dirt, the first pan of which
washed out 9A to the pan. That seems
to me to .be a pretty good pro|Mw,,ttoii
in any country, for the supply of dirt is
'it has cost him something, however:
to make the find. He has his familv
with him, and he was burned out laat
spring. The elaim as it now stands
probably represents to Mr. Laird an
outlay of ueariv tJCuari. It is in no
fienseapoor man's countrv. It ia, in
my own opinion, one of the greatest
hydraulic propositions on the Pacific
coast, but money la required to operate
the claims.
���'Mr. Laird commence-l by sinking a
shaft to a depth of about ittnetv feet,
and from the bottom of the shaft running a tunnel several hundred feet to a
point under the old bed of Willow river,
which ts a tributary to the Fraser. Om -
ing to the |>m*otice of ���alum,* through
which the shaft cannot be sunk, it is
uet-etavirytogoouttothe rim and sink
through to bedrock.
"The gold  at  the bottom is verv
coarse; juid as my impression Is that
Mr. Laird has a number of leases,which
are peculiar to Canadian mining law, it
is probable that his claim la not only
verv rich, but of large extent.
"This is the only strike of great value
of which I heard while there, but mining matters generally are brightening.
It will lie t-emembej-ed bv jnose who
know of the Cariboo excitement, that
Williams creek wai worked for more
than $20,<)Ht),000 while the excitement
lasted. The Caritwo Hydraulic Mining
Companv has made two clean-ups this
year, from which il realised more than
���182,01 *>. There is gold up then* and
lots of it. but It will require capital to
get it out.*'
Mr. Coulter left Seattle on the Ith of
last Julv in the interest of Seattle par
ties who expect to operate in the dis*
triot, and has been absent ever simje.
He intends to remain in Seattle during
the winter, but will return to the Cariboo in the spring.

A letter was received by Archie
Fletcher, Tuesday addressed to Lis old
friends in Kaslo* by Charlie Wright,
under the date of Telegraph Creek.
Sept. 21st, he reports that he and Harry
Chapman* had a very pleasant trip to
the coast and after a somewhat convivial 'tvtve-takittg with their old Victoria
friends embarked on the Queen on the
1*4 of September. They reached Fort
Wrangle, at tbe mouth of Ihe Htlklne
in three days, from which point, after
waiting nine davs for a rivet steamer
that did not materialise* they ait-ale Ike

will require to make relays but figure
that this will be the most economical
method as freigt rates to the head of
Hootolinuua river are ��*0 eenta not
pound. As a word of advice to any one
intruding to make the trip by thia route
tbe writer adds that by leaving Kootenay on Feb. 1st it would be possible
to reach the head of Hoetoiiuqtta river
in time to make the doseent wh**n the
ice breaks up in the spring. He also
considers that it wonld not be nece^arv
to take more than sunplies enough to
laat the trip as he believes that supplies
will Im* plentiful and to be had at a
reasonable price on the Yukon next
Charlie .Wright, formerly purser on
the Kokanee and Harry Chapmen, engineer on Ute same boat, are both verv
general!** known on Kootenav Uke,
and their friends will be glad' to hear
that they are In good health and spirits
aiul well on their way to the Klondike.

A Sumptttotm New C. P. R. Dlniig
The latest addition to the
stock bt tbeC. P. R. feas;
dining bar, the Frograore, to
on the tntnscontinental route, made
and fitted up entirely at the company's own works iu the east end.
T*he car b fitted up in the finest mahogany, and will seat 29 passengers
at the tables, which are arranged so
aa togs-re the notion of comfort and
ease, the idea being to cheat the imagination info the belief that instead
of dining on a train rushing through
space across a continent at the rate
or 50 miles an hour, one b sitting ia
a cosy dining room, with friends en-
joving a dttmne to the taste and predilection 'Aunt Dinah' waa a nonpa
reil cook, but her kitchen waa an
abomination; and it b a charge frequently brought against cooks in
general that while they may have
skill in manipulation and creation,
they do their work in an environment which dare not be shown to
those who eojoy the viands placed
before them. The kitchen of the
Frogmore, on the contrary, would
delight the most fastidious tr-ouae-
keeper. It cannot be called roomy,
but ever)' inch of spate b as dean
as a netr ptn, while tlie range* cun-
niTtrly ttt so as to make the utmost
of tne space at dbposa), shines and
glitters again. The locker b a little
gem, while the refrigerator b arranged in a series of small shelves
which permits of each vessel containing food  receiving its share of
coolness.   Then there' b the stem Letfcjw of dynamite lying outside the
room, aad tne linen room and tne eamp, and when he returned tbey
and the linen room nnd the
pantry, where the moat beautifuH
delft ware b displayed Tbe napcry
b like the driven snow; the tables
are adorned with plants and flowers,
white tbe mirrors and tbe decorations of the ceiling heighten the Mission that the dining room b home.
Tbe Frogmore, in its construction,
appointments and luxurious decoration and embellishment, reflects
credit alike open the piwreaslve
spirit of the company and the skill
of the workmen wbo have turned
out a dining car fecoud to none on
thb continent.���Montreal Witness.

The Admrtieer Geta It
Some time ago a subscription was
collected in Whitewater 'to buy a
of devil catching. Now, Mr. Editor, time has flown, nnd the sub
acribers are beginning to wonder
what has become of the chair, as we
cannot learn If it has lieen pore based
and presented or not. If not, where
b the monev?
One or the SvBBCainmta.
The Red Fox will ship another
car toad of ore next week.
The Last Chance b now building
a rawhide trail and making all necessary preparation Ibr a heavy output thb coming winter. It haa a
large amount of ore in sight and
will be one of Sandon's heavy producers.
The Payne b building a handsome house fbr the official reaklence
on the hogback near tbe foot of the
tramway. Donnelly A McLean have
the contract and will have it finished
by the end of the nx-nth. *% warehouse and office will also soon be
started.     *W**
The AJax mine will ship another
car load of ore early next
Thb mine b now more than pa;
all expenses of development. Tne
ore b nigh grade and nets above
11500 per car. Mr. E. Wallace
thinks that tbe AJax vein b tne name
as the Last Cbance vein. If thb be
true, we will expect to see, in the
near future, tbe AJax one of the
heaviest snippers in thb district.

; Some two months ago certain par*

Sandon to enlighten the li-eitL
savages of thb burg on the su
etitdr fbr one of Sandon's ministers,
who was preaching weekly in tbat
place. ArrangemeQts were made
with Robertson A Co. for the chair,
bnt when the money was to be sestHaiaky Atm,
tbe name of the Arm had been for- {**** dattbalnt-hsra
gotten. Keferenee was made to the

and the money was sent to them.
