T»o mileH above Silverton, by tbe Alalia road, which crosses the creek and
[inns climbirii |}ie bUI a few hundred
jural up thf gulch above town, Is situated the Emily F.dith group of claima,
which late lant winter was acquired by a
strong Oermau Company, and is being
developed undei Ibe personal supervision and management of T.Rammelniey-
e. About 18 months ago the Emily
Edith was simply a location with no
known merits, and owned by Dad Rob-
I'riHiii, n ho thought eo little of it that he
j»ve a one-hall Interest In it to Jsmes
Jlowes and Pat Daly to do the annual
representing on it for that year. While
dole, tho necessary work on it Mr.
Daly discovered and uncovered what in
>w known as the J*mily Edith lode,
which was a remarkably fine surface
it-owing. Mike Orady then acquired
for the turn ot $2500, a one fourth inter-
apt in the property from Robertson, and
ihe f ni combining diJ considerable
prospecting and mirfuce work last summer, with the result that lost wiuler ihey
disposed of the property lor tho bum of
120,000 to the present company.
Die tmily l.ilnli ie being  rapidly de-
fl-.pi'.l and a lorce of i.iue men Is con-

being driven night and day into the

THE CURIUK.
SILVER COINAGE.
In British Columbia a very large
proportion of the silver coin in circulation
is United States currency, Tnere would
not be so mnch objection to this if Canadian silver coin, at its lace value, were
accepted in American territory but this
Is not the caso, discount being invariably
demanded by the U. 8. banks and business establishments. Some time since
tbe Provincial banks advertised a discount charge on United States coin, but
this role was not enforced probably
because the amount ol Canadian silver
in circulation in the Province was found
to be insuff icent for commercial requir-
ments, a state of aflairs for which the
Dominion goverment is ehar.eable. ll
Is to be hoped that the agitation in favor
of aCanadUn mint will not be allowed
to subside.—Mining Record

During February the total -diipruents
of the Idaho amounted to 100 tons. For
March this mine shipped 590 tons, and
the record for Apiil is expected to eclipse
this record.
An extract from Carlyle's report of the
provincial mines, reads as follows:
"When the  Oalena  Farm   property

M improvement is now reported.   In
tbe report for 1896 the presence of fine
blende was mentioned twice, but tbie

P'tty has not had justice done to what

absurd to condemn it altogether.     An

Editor Sii.vertonian :
Mr. Bartlett conducted the service in
the church at Silverton last Sunday—
having come a long distance, and at considerable cxpeiiee, to keep bis appointment—and with mnch acceptance. Madam Rumor, however,says that the Rev.
It, N. Powell had au agent on limd to
gobble up, and who did gather in for
him, the collection. Of course Madam
Rumor is often found to be a lying jade.
Editors, on the other hand, are omniscient and not given to lying or in anv
way cconomyzing the truth. Is this
siatemeut of Madam Rumor correct?

women wbo wear low shoes are In
grave danger of having their feet made
flat and unshapely by tbe lack of support for their ankles. That explains,
of course, why women of times and
countries tn which only sandals were
worn or the feet were left unshod furnished so many beautiful models for
painters and sculptors.
The Attorney General of Massachusetts has suggested that trials for certain criminal offences be held in secret, thus shutting out prurient idlers
and making It difficult for cheap newspapers to gather the filth on which they
fatten. In such an event, the criminal
would miss bis notoriety, tbe loafer his
scandal and the newspaper Its "sensation"—but to decent people tbe aggregate of all these losses would be a great
gain.
Tbs railroads of the United States
expend In a year a sum more than f 100,-
000,000 In excess of the total expenditures of the United States Government,
and this computation does not Include
nearly $260,000,000 paid In the form of
Interest upon railroad bonds or guaranteed stock and from $80,000,000 to
$100,000,000 paid In tbe form of dividends to stockholders. The railroads,
Indeed, are the great disbursing agencies of the country, handling never less
than a billion dollars In a year and disbursing It all, or practically all, for
railroads as a rule do not keep large
bank accounts, and do practically a
cash business, turning money rapidly.
It Is neither tbe ease which wealth
fives—for riches as often bring carklng
carts with them—nor yet asceticism,
nor yet athletics, which enables men
to reach advanced yean. While the
controlling Influence Is so obscure that
we may not confidently assume to point
It out, we think It will be found that
the possession of a clear conscience
goes as far aa anything to prolong a
a's life   The worries of life, which
wear out nervous force, lose their grip
upon one wbo Ib at peace with his conscience, and as a general thing those
who live the longest have possession of
this vital resource.
The trading-stamp usually buries In
Its patrons both the sense of humor
and that of proportions. A woman recently stopped a street car after paying her fare, and took a return car
home to get a forgotten trading-card
before making some trifling purchases.
The price of the extra fares exactly
balanced the value of the "gift" ou five
dollars' worth of goods. The law
against trading-stamps may be unconstitutional, but It Is a moral protest
against the habit of trying to get something for nothing. Moreover, consld
erlng the real value of the "gifts," the
something L usually less than nothing.
We are apt to laugh at Russia for so
long persisting In the use of the antiquated calendar which was prescribed by Julius Caesar, and which
Is now twelve days behind the calendar In use by other civilized uallons,
but Russia Is now going not only to fall
In lino with the rest of the world Iu
her mode of reckoning time, but to take
another Important step In advance—u
step from which America, progressive
In most other things, shrinks with all
the timidity of a child urged to take his
first dip In the ocean. Russia has decided to adopt the metric system of
weights and mensures, thus leaving the
United States and Great Britain the
last of civilized nations to retain the
old-fashioned arbitrary method of
weight and mensuration. It has taken
Russia 310 years to adopt the Gregorian calendar; let us hope It will not be
quite so long before the United States
adopts the metric system.

The candidature of Prince George of
Greece for the governorship of Crete
Is a striking Illustration of the personal
relations of the relguiug houses lu
Europe. He wrote a letter to his cousin, the Emperor of Russia, asking ditto support his claims. The Emperor
at once adopted hlin as the Russian
candidate. They are not only cousin.,
each being a grandson of King Christian IX. of Denmark, but are also intimate friends of nearly the same age
They were companions lu a Journey
around the world, nnd Prince George,
by his coolness and courage, bad saved
his cousin's life from au assassin's attack in Japan. A personal appeal for
support could not be disregarded. The
governorship of Crete has remained nn
unsettled question since the war between Turkey and Greece. The Eu.*»
pean powers, while pledged to protect
the Island, and to reform Its government, had been unable to agree upon a
candidate for governor. One name aftei
another bad been proposed, only to be
rejected. The wily Sultan objected ou
general principles to every candidate.
When Nicholas II. ordered his ministers to pnpose Prince George's name,
the significance of the nomination as
the personal choice of the sovereign
was perceived throughout Europe.
France, as Russia's closest ally, at ouce
supported the candidature. Lord Salisbury seconded It gladly, especially :u
the Prince was the nephew of tbe Princess of Wales. Italy acquiesced. The
attitude of the Kaiser Is not yet fully
known. Greece had plunged into war
in order to liberate and annex Crete,
and had been disastrously defeated.
The appointment of a son of tbe King
of Greece as governor of Crete would
be a considerable victory for tbe prostrate little kingdom. Tbe Sultan refused to consent to It, and appealed
to the German Emperor. Russia at
once applied pressure by demanding
the payment of arrears of Interest on
the unpaid war Indemnity contracted
by Turkey In the campnlgns of 1877-8.
Whenever the Sultan Is obstinate, he
Is forcibly reminded that Turkey owes
Russia a great deal of money. This
candidature, which will at once do
much to retrieve tbe fortunes of
Greece, and will offer a practical solution of a troublesome question of European diplomacy, Is tbe outcome of the
Intimate relations of tbe two cousins,
who were together In the far East. In
the same way the German Emperor,
in entering upon a diplomatic and naval campaign In China, commissioned
his brother to visit Queen Victoria at
Osborne. Prince Henry Is a favorite
among the Queen's grandsons, nnd in
consequence of his visit more friendly
relations between England and Germany have been established. Whatever may be the rival policies of Russia and England In China, the family
relations of the two courta tend to promote compromise and peace. Nicholas
II. has married a granddaughter of the
Queen, and is strongly Influenced by
his mother, who Is a sister of the Princess of Wales.
Rest in Change.
The next best thing to taking a summer or winter trip Is to change the aspect of one's home twice a year. Such
change does not Imply a domestic upheaval Involving great work, family
discomfort and general wretchedness
for a week or more. It simply means
what any woman can uccompllsh with
ease, taste and tactfulness, supplemented by ordinary "general cleaning day"
effort on the part of the housemaid or
mald-of-all-work.
No woman who has not tried It can
conceive of the rest and pleasure resulting from such changes. Monotony
Is deadly to bodily and mental health;
possibly to spiritual well-being also. A
change of environments, even If to others less attractive, Is beneficial, simply
because It Is a change—Woman's
Home Companion.

As showing the enormous amount of
wealth produced in .Silver How county,
Montana, some figures prepared by Eugene B. Braden, in charge of the United
States'assay offloa In Helena, are of the
greatest moment. Mr. Braden hns placed
tho entire output ol Silver How county
from 1882 to 1SD7, inclusive, ut the enormous figure for gold, silver and copper it I
$38:1,080,777.07. The total of 589,2-8,104
fine ounces of gold wns valued at $11,148,-
075,74, The product of silver, 113,005.1)01
ounces, would he worth at coinage rate,
$140,883,234. Mr. Braden has estimated
the value of the copper output by computing copper at 12 cents a pound. As a
mutter of fnet the estimate is probably an
exceedingly conservative one, the average
price of that commodity having been
during the years 1889 until 18117, inclusive, 13.470 cents, making it prohahlu that
Mr. Hmdcn's figures nre duly low. But
even at 12 cents the product, 1,875,402,242
pounds, is shown to bo worth the ennr
inous sum of $825,055/487.04, Tho most
remarkable thing about it all, us it will
strike the average student, is that ull that
has been taken from within practically u
radius of three miles—the city of Butte
und its iniinediiite vicinity.

Thc recent discovery of rich gold-liear-
] ing quartz on a limestone and porphyry
contact near Applegate, in Jackson county, Oregon, is worth; of more than n passing notice. It used to he the prevailing
opinion nmong competent mining authorities that this formation wns not favorable to auriferous mineralization until the
i discovery in recent yeurs of the extensive
j and almost Inexhaustible gold fields nt
Mercur,   Utah,   in  a similur  formation.
This limestone dyke, iu which the dlsoov-
| ery wns mnde, is of a metamorphic char-
' actcr, or what he called in common par-
! lance a blue black marble, and is mineral
j ized to a greater or less degree through-
> out the entire muss, hut ns a rule thc gold
- is found in a black, cherty, impure quartz
extending through oxidized lime or marble over  on  Jnckson  creek, about  two
miles from Jacksonville, which has proved
to be highly mineralized in both gold and
silver,  as in  the  Bcckmnn  nnd  Huffer
mine.   Below this enleite dyke the enrly
placer miners in the. 60s used to pick up
some wonderfully rich gold nnd silver ore
in the ground sluice, nnd it was a mystery from whence it came until the die-
! covery in recent years, as above stated, in
the Buekman and HuH'er mine.
Trviw Mat-Sat.
One of the oldest mining camps (Texas
district)   encountered  in   this northwest
I region is situated at the  headwaters of
; the Lemhi river, Idaho.   In the. 80s it at-
i trneted considerable notice, and attained
'a very prominent position as an ore pro-
i diner.   'Ilie camp was one of the best, wa-
1 tered und timbered of any locality in Ida-
; ho, and its accessibility and natural ad-
i vantages were unsurpassed.   Its natural
: outlet is through the fertile valley lead-
' ing past Spring mountain, Nicholio, and
j down along Birch creek, thence fii Dubois,
; I (hi ho.    Upwards of $80/900 weic taken
I from one of its mines alone, and altogeth-
i er it has produced in the neighborhood of
i $75,000 worth of bullion.   Something like
I 200 mining claims were  located   within
the district.    No great depth  wos ever
attained on any of its properties) and the
shipments were confined to surface deposits.   It covers a stretch of country from
25 to 35 miles in length, comparable in
nil respects to.the Sawtooth range in the
Wood River country.    Want of capital
und the high  charges for transportation
that at that period governed, held  the
country in check until it was overtaken
by thc warfare on silver, since which time
it has lain dormant ns a mining section.
Its ores have ranged all the way from $20
to $500 in silver to the ton, principally
chlorides, which, it is urged, is ngninst it
as a concentrating product.    Galena nnd
carbonates are  much  in  evidence.    But

Stampede to Swede (reck.
The latest stampede from Dawson wus

en route from Turiana river to Dawson,
ex-Mayor Wood of Seattle, who lately re-
tinned from Alaska, paid particular attention to the mineral district on the
American side of the line, and his observations hnve made him enthusiastic over
its prospects. There has been a great
deal of prospecting along all the creeks
from the Tanana to Forty Mile creek this
winter, nnd the results obtained ore encouraging. There seems to lie a general
movement of prospectors to this section,
The lower Ktimpai t and the Koyokuk are
especially promising. There is a revival
in interest around Circle City.

famous property in time, followed its vein
down under its side line only to find that
ore to the value of of perhaps $170,000
had been taken out by the. owners of a
claim lying alongside. Suit was brought
and the issue will soon be determined,

London, April 5.—The Madrid correspondent of the Times says: Spoin's reply to the American proposals is reported
to have done little or nothing toward relaxing the intentions of the United States.
The chances of on amicable settlement
are moro remote than ever, and most
Spanish minds ore prepared for the worst.
President McKinley, we learn, may or
may not send one sharp ultimatum as a
dernier ressort. If he does, and the ultimatum requires the evacuation of Cuba
by the Spanish troops, everything goes to
show it may ns well he left unwritten. If
the worst happens it is obvious that S|*ain
will go to war with the firm conviction
that she worked from first to last in the
legitimate interests of peace, making every concession fairly compatible with nn-
limial dignity.

Washington, April 8.—The opinion almost universally held In Washington tonight by leading public men and diplomats is that the crisis will reach its ell-
iiinx this week nnd that the question of
wnr or peaee will be determined within
the next, seven days. Benaton und representatives met und conferred nil day
ulxnit the gravity of the situation und ut
the While house the president consulted
with several members of his cabinet und
other confidential advisors regarding the
message which he is praparlng to send to
congress. At the stole, war nnd navy
buildings active work wus going on and
altogether it was a day of suppressed
iseling. No definite announcement is mads
as to the day the message will he scut
to congress, but it is not believed it will
go in tomorrow.   It is believed that more
probably Wednesday or Thursday will be
the day  selected.    Besides the physical
work of preparing the comprehensive document, upon which the president, expects
to rest his case with the world, there ore
other reasons why those in charge of the
war preparations will welcome every
hour's delay.    War    material which    we j
have ordered abroad is not yet shipped
and the factories in this country work
day and night making powder ami pro
jeotlles und are anxious for delay. Some
of the factories in Connecticut with con-
traots have telegraphed Representative
Hitt, urging all delay possible. They say
every day now is precious.
There is still divergence of opinion os
to what the president will recommend in
his message, indeed, there seems to lie
still a question us to whether the president will make any specific recommendations. Some of his most intimate friends,
however, assert emphatically    that    the
president's recommendations will lie via* I
iirous and such that his party and  the
country could  willingly follow  when he '
points the way.   One of these said tonight !
that the president, in  his strong  desire
for  peace  and  earnest  hope    that  war
convinced thut wur wus inevituhle and
about to be declared. While they look
njioii the situation as grave, the general
sentiment among them is that the matter
has not yet progressed beyond the range
of diplomacy und a pacific solution. For
that reason there was a strong Inclination shown today to wait until the president's message was sent to congress, the
feeling being that the real issue could not
be determined until the message had been
submitted.
At. the outset. Spain was most earnest,
for mediation, ond to this end addressed
a note to the powers about 10 days ago.
Now, however, us the prospects for mediation appears to he growing, the Spanish
authorities seem to be less inclined to
ward this course. This niny be due to
the fact that Spain had looked on mediation ns nn indirect form of intervention of
tin- Kiiiopeiin powers in fuvor of one of
their own number. The Spanish note
developed, however, that the powers were
not ready for any such radical step.
France made the first declaration,
through Premier llonotuux, in the
French chamber, that France would
treat both parties alike ns friends. This
WM un unexpected reverse for Spain, as
she  hod  felt  that French   ownership of
Martinique, Guadeloupe ahd other Islands
would inclino her lo sympathy with
Spain in defending her sovereignty over
Cuba.
It wns staled by one of the ambassadors today that any move iu the form of
mediation would first ussume form hy un
exchange of notes among the European
powers, which could Is* done speedily by
telegraph iu cose of a war crisis seeming
ut hand. Iii such event the general understanding among the diplomats here is
that Great Britain France, Germany and
Austria would be consulted, ns their eom-
iiu'iiiiil interests would bo seriously (-rippled hy a war between the United States
and Spain. While Russia and Italy also
might be consulted owing to their Influence in European sSairs, yet their immediate interest in the Spanish-Amen.an
conflict would lie for less than that of
the other countries mentioned.
It is probable that negotiations will be
opened hy this government with Denmark
to allow cable measngSS to come over the
French line from the Danish island of St.
TheiBus to the United States. With the
Leeward islands, of which St. Thomas is
B center, as the probable center of any
I naval operations which may result from
I the present  crisis, it is recognised  as of

to whether the innsnlor reports and the

The suspenae caused by the
delay iu the preparation of the message
is very trying on the members of the
bouse and the most universally discussed
question in Washington tonight. Is whether congress can be restrained until the
message is  transmitted.    All    recognize

THE TRUCK ACT.
COMING IN.
Mr. Kellie's Truck Act was undoubtedly introduced to mitigate and
prev-nt suili evils as the company
uteres, in operation in so many mining
localities. The act must however, if
passed, create great inconveniences
among tho greater part of our tninps,
where the benefits conferred on the
employees by the mine beardia. - houses
has no objectionable features. The Lo
Roi mine appears to be an exception
to the general rule among our B. C
mines. To prevent an epiployoe deal
ing with his employer would work
many hardships on our miners not intended by Mr. Kellie. Where such
necessaries as tobacco, clothing, etc.,
are sold at cost by tho companies to
their men, and wj*ere the boarding
houses are conducted i;i the manner in
which they have been in the Slocan, it
would be a great injustice to the men
to have the act, enforced. The principle underlying Mr. Kellie's action in
a laudable one, hut, unfortunately, the
enforcement of the act would be. detrl
mental to tho majority of our miners.
vvvvvvystvvyvvvvvvv
bearing, the challenge will not he accepted. The deed d sentiment of <b
people geuerally ia wo think, in full
sympathy with the Senate's action in
this matter. Tbe more the Yukon
Railway Bill is studied, the moro indefensible are it's provisions and the
Government's action in entering into
the contract which it was intended to
ratify teen to be. Each provision contained in this contract seems to bo more
indefensible than the previous one.
Utterly at variance are they with ever)
contention of the present Government
when tht-.y were in oppo-iton io regard
to giving contructs without previous
tenders, iu regard to land stibsi lies—
locking up large tracts of land etc.
Utterly preposterous were the land
grant and the other concessions confined in the bill in comparison with
tbe services to be rendered therefore.
And then what was proposed to be had
for this grant and these conceptions —
an all-Canadian route to the Klondyke
— was really not obtained after all.
The Senate has rendered excellent service to the country in throwing out
this bill, which was conceived in -lin
and brougnt forth in iuiq lity. The
ext"iit of the land graut and ttie mode
in wliic'i it could be selected by tin-
contractors and the character of llu-
other concessions which it was proposed to handover to them as etnbod-
Mii in t'i- bill riobiy merited the d
cided rejection of it by the Senate
which it received.
What cours ■ then is the Government going to pursue in consequence
of this rejection by the Senate of this
bill! It is report d that the Government is going to construct tho railway
as a public work. This would hive
heen the more acceptable course to the
country had it been selected, at least
much more acceptable thin that covered by the Yukon Railway Bill. It is
conceded by all, by those who voted
against the Yukon Railway bill not
less than by those who were in favor
of it, that an all-Canadian route to the
Klondyke constructed at the earliest
possible date, is a necessity. At a time
it was feared that the Government in
it's action would rpgemble the sulky
child who, because he could not g t
what he wanted, would I i.e or do nothing. Such was frequently threatened by Ministers and Government
organs. For instance the Minister of
Justice is reported to have said in the
Senate on the 28th ult as follows: -
"in ease of defeat, the Government are
not called upqu to do anything!, Tlmy
have submitted their mcai-ure. am) if tlid
Senate choose to wrench the authority
which they have out of the hands of the
Government, the consequence of the iter
must abide with tbenn."
That courie yrould however hnve
been exceeding reprehensible. The
wiser coors<», interpreting the feelings
of the country is apparently to be ad-'
opted— to proceed as rapidly as pons-,
idle with the consM'uction of this railway over an all-Canadian route, aa a
Government work. The lands will
thus he saved to the country—not the
agricultural lands alone, which The
Globe, with fine irony, assured the
people wonld be reserved to the settlers under the now defeated bill; the
prospector and miner will not be

work by a powerful and graspiug cor-

QN  THE   BUDiET.
The Budget Speach msbe hy Finance Minister Turner is a striking proof
of how the interest in mining has
gained almost universal attention in
British Columbia. While the returns
from arable land, tlie forest, dec are far
below the estimates, (he phj-nomonal
returns from tha sales of mining licenses and mining fees, more than
treble the isanitates. That the expenditure exceeds the estimates is no more
than expected, after looking at the
extent of counrry opened up the las
year, No ono will urge against the
govenuent th-* expenditure of these
stuns. Tne existing state of affairs
rendered absolutely necessary large
appropriations for educational purposes
public works and the administration
of justice. The following figures from
Mr. Turner's speech shows conclusively
the way in which our credit is incroaHiilg
in th« worlds market. {u 1891
