The greater willingness of capitalists to invest in western properties is due to their^ having ascertained that eastern papers were lying to them when they told them
that the west wanted to pay its
,debts with fifty cent dollars. The
.west will never repudiate a cent of
=its obligatians even if it has to ensure the injustice of paying them
^with two-dollar dollars.
All over the country the advocates of sound money, seemingly
realize that an active propaganda
is needed to prevent the further
spread of unsound financial theories, and they have wisely decided
to be early in the field.���British
.Columbia Commercial Journal.
Like many- eastern papers, the
Commercial Journal talks about
."sound money" without having a
.clear conception of what sound
money is. If the Journal will
carefully read Prof. Twigg's
pamphlet on Bi-metallism, published in London, England, and
Harvey's "Coin's Financial School"
published in Chicago, it will obtain some information that it is
;?adly ip need of.
There are enough genuine mining districts in Kootenay, such as
Slocan, Granite Belt, Trail Creek,
Lardeau and Illecillewaet, which
may be spoken and written favorably of without booming such a
doubtful locality as Cariboo creek.
A number of tests have failed to
reveal a tenth part of the amount
,of mineral there that iB claimed.
There is a strong suspicion that
the Cariboo creek boom is kept up
in the interest of the C. & K. S. N.
Co. and a few wild-cat speculators.
If, however, the Cariboo-creekers
,<:an show that they have any mineral worth speaking of, no publication will be more ready than the
Phobpeotob to announce it, and
give them credit for all they are
worth. We hope that there is millions of wealth there and that it
will be found.
The battle royal is on. Simultaneously in England and the U.
S. the advocates of a single gold
standard have thrown off all dis-
.guises and proclaimed their purposes.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt,
.chancellor of the exchequer, has
:said:
"You may rely upon it, Her
Majesty's government will give no
���countenance to any change in the
fundamental principles of our
monetary system nor, in any discussion in which they may be
called upon to take part, will they
���admit any doubt as to their intentions firmly to adhere to the single
standard."    '
Sir William can speak only for
ihe present administration. The
Conservatives have adopted bimetallism as their platform, and
henceforth the battle will be fought
ns fiercely in England as it has
been in the United States.
A few weeks ago the Nelson Tribune was saying that with the
low price of silver very few mines
would be operated in the Slocan
and a drop of a few cents more
would close them all.' Now it
claims that mine owners are making too much money and wants
to inaugurate a war against them.
The Tribune's consistency is apparent to no one but itsself.
A few weeks ago it gave as one
of the reasons why Rossland is a
good town and Trail creek a prosperous camp, that:
The claim owner does not need
to hire armed men to hold his
ground; the mine owner pays  hie
men by the day or contract as he
sees fit; the men who work for
wages can board where they please
find purchase their clothing and
tobacco where they can obtain the
best goods at the lowest price.
Now it would change all this
and have the mine owner pay not
as he sees fit but as he is dictated
to, or have his mine closed as the
Bunker Hill & Sullivan and the
Hunter are. The Tribune wobbles.
Two hundred women preachers
are to occupy as many London
pulpits on Sunday, June 16. That
will bring the men of London to
church in unusual numbers, unless they are insensible to the
charms of feminine eloquence.���Ex.

IN PRACTICAL OPEUATION.
The staid old investors living in
Boston, and elsewhere, who had
taken risks in the stock of the
Mexican Central railway must
have been grievously shocked in
i heir theoretical anatomy when
ihey received their copy of the annual report of the directors upon
the'business of that corporation
for 1894.
Possibly some of these directors
blushed at the admission they
Vere compelled to make; but the
necessity existed* and they were
forced to tell why their road had
earned money, yes, for two years
in succession, and that, too, in a
xountry where the debased) outlawed and wretchedly impoverished 50-cent dollar is the standard
voin of the realm.
But they faced the music, took
their medicine promptly, and
beaded their document with the
tacts.
And this is what their stockhold-
"were compelled to read:
"The continued depreciation in
silver and the consequent rise in
lhe rate of exchange had the same
effect as in 1873 of curtailing importations, and thereby stimulating the manufacturing and other
industrial enterprises in the republic, and so increasing the" local
transportation.".
What a sermon for political
Economists, of the Gray Gables
brand, is contained in that brief
paragraph!
What a commentary upon the
iistute wisdom of those who scream
"that the free coinage of silver
means destruction to prosperity!
What an object lesson to those
independent minds which areearn-
Vstly seeking a way out of the
financial slough of despond into
which the greed of a selfish few

Mill,
NOT WANTED   IN  OWYHJSE  COUNTY
here we beg to call the attention
of the people of Owyhee���the miners especially���to the fact, that
vigilance* must be observed if we
escape the same direful condition
of things which has ruined and
cursed the Coeur d'Alene mining
district. We have received information from reliable sources
that some of the leaders of the
Shoshone county union have
visited this camp and are pospibly
still here. We do not want to be
understood as condemning every
member of that organization���
many were undoubtedly blameless
for the acts of brutality and- lawlessness which must be charged to
that body of men���but we do want
it understood that the Avalanche
is decidedly opposed to the leaders,
murderers and walking delegates
of that union ever gaining a foothold in this section.
We have a fairly prosperous
mining district here���everything
is running smoothly���there is no
clashing between employer ahd
employe���and the prospects are
bright for even better times. But
if those oily-tongued, session-holding delegates'are allowed to gain
an audience, our prosperity will
vanish' and the disgraceful scenes
which have characterized the Cceur
d'Alene country for three years
past will be re-enacted here. We
trust to the foresight of our citizens
to do all in their power to avert
such a condition. Give the disturbing element to understand
that no foolishness will be tolerated.

Idaho Avalanche, silver Cily.
Under date of May 14, the
Statesman publishes a communication from a miner of Shoshone
county, addressed to Governor Mc-
Connel, in which is set forth the
hardships and outrages that have
been and are being perpetrated in
that section through the agency of
the miner's union) and asking for
relief.
The governor in reply sayB substantially that the remedy lies
with the people themselves���that
if the business men and citizens
will make an effort to enforce their
honest rights, that he will protect
them "if necessary to the extent
of calling out every able-bodied
inan in the state."
The governor's letter has the
right ring to it, and he will be up-
help in his conclusions by every
citizen of the state who has its
hest interests at heart.   And right
