The lowest point ever vet  touched was in ilarch kibt year, when  the price at' one time stood at 27d.  (55c), or only +d. below th<j. pietent  quotation. Whether the,value of the  nietjil is likely to recede still further or  whether wo mayvxpect an appreciation within a reasonable time is a matter of -the utmost importance to the  market and to the public nene������\-illy���������  not only to that section of it which  holds investments in securities bused  on silver, but also to that which is in-  tereste'd in trade with silver using  countries. More, or, less, indeed, the  whole community ffe concerned iiv this  vital question.  Before discussing the prospects of  the white, metal it will be, perhaps, as  well to refresh onr'memory by a glance  at the past. It.seoms uluiobt incredible  nowadays to recall that silver was  at one time quoted,,at GOd. or 5s. ($1.22)  per oz.,' that, is to say, only ������d. below  the nominalparity. Vet that wiia the  case no further back than February,  1873, and must be well within the recollection of many who are to-day  scarcely more than 'mid'dle-aged. For  a year or more subsequently.the course,  of silver was consistently towards'  lower values, and in July, 1S70, the  price dipped to i'.)ld. ($1)���������an unheard-  of quotation at that period. Early in  the following yiw it rorovoted too7Jd.  ($1.17), and then for several years the  figures went aigzajeging downwards.  The twelve months ending December,  1890, were in particular a period of  wide nuetiiatioiis, the quotations varying from 4-ld. (COc.) to 54id. ($1.11) per  oz. Thenceforward the trend of prices  was again steadily downward, the  lowest level in '1802 ' being 374'd., or  about 70c.  " ������  Without entering into bimetallic  controversy, it is'pretty saie to hay  that.the chief factor in bringing about  the depreciation was over-pioduetion,  which was caused parth' by the Sherman Act, ::.-i it. must unwisely fostered  the silver industry in the<- United  States, and partly by the development  of silver lninine: in Australia, Mexico  'and other parts of the world.  The question naturally arises���������What  reason is there to suppose that this  downward movement, extended now  over so many years, will not be'continued? Is there any rock-bottom to  'the silver'quotation ? Anything, in  short, to preveni.il. going to 20d. (���������!!)>.���������.)  or lower? From 5s. ($1.22) to 2s. 3d.  (35c.) is a big drop, and may not a simi-  'only thing certain is that the course, of  the silver quotation will largely depend  upon the action taken by Japan after  the. war. q  . A more remote contingency bearing  upon the future of the incta! is the possibility of the United States going to  a .silver basis. Should that not alio-'  gether improbable event occur, a large  appreciation in the price would almost  immediately follow. As regards Mexican dollars, in addition to their being  compelled to follow the fortunes of  .silver, the.y have an added difficulty of  their own to contend with in the circulation of the new British trade dollar  in the East. >This coin is likely to grow  rapidly into favor", and the demand for  the Mexican dollar must necessarily be  curtailed.  ...Nov. :t  ...Nov. 10  ...Nov. 17  ...Oct.1" 27  ...Nov. 3  ...Nov. 1Q  FINE   'UPHOLSTEUTNC   WORK.

The lowest. co������t of jn-oduction with our  present methods seems to be, "under  the most., favorable circumstance.1-,  about i-td. (2Sc.) an ounce, and between  "this and oven,27d. there is a wide margin. But the average cost is considerably above tliis'figure, and among the,  safeguards against a further excessive  depreciation in price must be reckoned  the limitation of production and the  increasing use of the metal.in the arts  and in coinage. "  [t is, however, almost idle to speculate about the ultimate fate of silver;  even the prospects, of the iinmediale.  future are extremely uncertain. One  of tho causes of the recent fall in price  is traceable to the lessened demand  from China, where trade is interfered  with by the war. Indian trade is also,  for the moment, rather dull, nolwith-  the commencement of the expoit  season, and this has affected' adversely  the sale of (Jon.vols bills. The Japane.-:.'  demand for silvi>r has also declined'of  late for similar reasons. For the next  two or throe weeks silver will probably  fluctuate between 27dand2Sd, but with  the settlement of, the war between  China and Japan we may look for fresh  developments.  It i.s the general   belief that pence  will be proclaimed  between the belligerent-- within the next three months at  the  latest.     After    that   one    of two  events afii'cting  "-liver  must   happen,  and opinion is pretty evenly divided in  the city as to which is the more likely.  One is that Japan may, aftei   exacting  a h.rgo war  indemnify  in  gold  from  China, s-et up a gold   standard  for herself, in which event a further fall is inevitable.    The other  is, that she ' may  take her indemnify in part, at least, in  silver, and maintain   her adherence to  Iter   present   standard.'     Should   this  latter turn out  to   lie  correct, a ris" in  the  quotation for the melal may fairly  be counted   upon.   -Those  people  vibo  fancy a gold standard  is, likely  to be  adopted  argue that the  Japanese are  an imitative pnuple, and that a loamm?  lu'vards ,i gold standard  has hm;.-- be,mi  j oh-ervab!o, both in the pio.5:..iiid in lb"  j legislature.

Mr. Xellie's bill relating to the payment of wages will be of great importance in Southern , West Kootenay,  where 'mine-owners' and contractors,  being mostly from the,other side of the  boundary line, are paying their woi-k-  nien=s-.������,'sLh paper on Spokane banks.  This i-pa per is passed on to the merchants, who in turn have to forward it  ^?o Spokane for redemption at a discount, which, of course, conies out of  the workmen. As will be seen below,  .'Mr. Keliio's bill provides that all wages  shall be. paid in Canadian money, or  what has been declared to be legal tender by DominionStattVte. and shall be  paid at,the. place where such labor is  "employed, or at the- nearest practicable  point in the province. The'bill is a  small one of three sections, as follows :  Sec. I.���������This Act'mav be cited its the  "Payment of \Vagos"Act, 18<J5," and  shall not lake effect until after the first  day of July, 1S95. ,  Sec. 2.���������All wages due or accruing  for, labor performed .within the Province of British Columbia shall be paid  in the lawful money of Canada, or that  declared to be legal tender by a statute  of the Dominion of Cjuiada claiming,  the same, and no othcii, and shall be  paid at the place where such labor is  employed, or at the nearest practicable  point' within the said Province of  Bi iJiidi Columbia. ���������  Sec. H.���������Every violation of this Act  shall be punished, upon summary conviction, on information or complaint  before any Justice of the Peace, with  costs, by a fine not exceeding fifty,  dollars for each separate violation, to  be levied by'distress, or, in default of  payment, by imprisonment for a term  not exceeding t hirty days.  '   TRAIL CREEK LETTER.  Tiiail, Feb. 4, 1895.  The War'Eagle shares that were sold  the other, day were snapped up eagerly,  and the same parties have offered to  take 50,000 at the same price. The  mine was bonded last year for $17,500,  and when the bond was taken up the  owners placed the shares at $1 each.  The mine is shipping between 20 and  HO tons a day, at a profit of something  like $30 a ton after [laying all expenses.  Underground the mine is a mammoth  cave, and, as a mining man said the  other day, "No property in Leadville  or any where else on this continent excels it, so far as developed. It.is at  least a million dollar mine and is probably worth more ��������� than twice that  amount." o  A strike, hits been made on the O. K.  mine, about a mile and a-half from Le  Roi, being a 14-inch vein of copper pyrites and seven feet of free-milling ore,  at a depth of 140 feet.;'   ",        ' t.  Another mine adjoining the Le Roi  is to be extensively worked. This is  the Centre Star, which has about 500  feet of tunneling and a 50-ffc. shaf b. The  tunnel has been in ore all the wav and  several hundred tons are ready for shipment. The owners will shortly let a  contract for; cutting 500 feet more of  tunnels.     ,  A- big rush of prospectors is expected  as soon as the snow is ,off the hills, as  there is a vast extent of' this district  not yet explored, and there is every  probability that sotiie rich finds will be  reported in the spring.

Fight For The Oriental Trade.  It is stated that a determined fight  between the Canadian Pacific Steamship Company and and the Pacific Mail  and, Occidental, lines for the Oriental  trade is about to be inaugurated. The  Canadian Pacific agency announces  that hereafter tlioii oteameis will  arrive and depart at Vancouver from  .Yokohama every 11 days, instead of  'every 21 days as at present. The arrangement is also being- made to have  connection by the Canadian 'Pacific,  with Hawaii. Tho Pacific Mail, Occidental and Oriental lines have made a  combination interchanging tickets  between San Francisco and Honolulu.  EMIGRATION TO CANADA.'  An Increase of. 25 percent. Last Month.'  The Montreal Star's special correspondent in London cables: " The  new year began,well for emigration.  The total for January shows an increase  of 2,500 over January, 1S94. The emigration to the United States was nearly  doubled, and the emigration to,Canada  increased 25 per cent."  , -   Fast Living.  The most remarkable instance of  rapid, growth is said to be, recorded by  the French Academy in 1729. It was a,  boy six years of age, 5 feet G inches in  height. At the age of live his voice  changed, at six his beard had grown  and he appeared a man of thirty. Me  possessed great physical strength, and  could easily lift to. his shoulders and  carry bags of grain weighing 2U0 lbs.  ilis decline was as rapid as his growth.  At eight his hair and beard were gray;  at ten he tottered in his walk, his teeth  fell out, and his hands became palsied.  At twelve he died with every outward  sign of extreme old age.  Gold Mining in the Isle of Man.'  The Douglas (I. of M.) correspondent  of the Yorkshire 'Post,- telegraphs.: It  transpires that gold in paying quantities has been discovered close to to the  Douglas foreshore-, .Workmen"sinking  arid driving for plumbago,discovered a  vein of gold-bearing ��������� quartz. The  'syndicate promoting the operations  submitted specimens to Mr. Spargo, of  London, a well-known.export, and his  report was so favorable * that a company was at once formed,^ with ' the  object of developing the vein. The  directorate of the company is composed of influential Douglas gentlemen.  A gang of men is at present employed  in developing'the shaft, commencing  on the beach just below-Derby Castle.  After the Battle.  Over 300 of the Brooklyn strikers and  their sympathizers have been arrested  on charges of assaulting the cars and  non-union men, ot with obstructing the  tracks. Among the twelve ' indicted  was Mary Macdonald. She threw, a  brick at a car on January otb. This  offence is a felony, punishable by ton  years' imprisonment. '  Mexican Tin for New York.  ' A car load of pig tin, amounting to  322 bars, consigned to ' New York, was  shipped from Mines near "Durango,  Mexico, last week. This is said to be  the second shipment of tin ore ever  mined on the American continent;  ���������VTOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that  JLN   'application   will  be made to the  Parliament of Canada, at the next hob  sion thereof, for an Act to incorporate  a Company for   the   purpose of constructing,  equipping, maintaining and  operating a line of railway to run from ���������  a point at or near the. mines  known as  the "Trail Creek mines," in the District  of Kootenay, in the Province of British  Columbia,  to soriie 'point as near as  practicable   to   tho  junction' of Trail'  Creek  and  the Columbia River, in the  said District of  Kootenay, with power  to construct, equip, maintain and operate branch lines ; and also to construct  and operate 'telegraph and telephone-  lines in connection with  the Baid rail- '  way, together with the usiial powers to  acquire lands,   privileges,,'bonuses,'or  aids from the Dominion  or Provincial  Governments, and to make traffic and  other    arrangements    with    railway,  steamboat and other coinp-inies," and <  for   all   other    usual   and     nsceysary  powers, rights and privileges. ^  *   Dated at Vancouver, this JJth day of,  January, A.D. 1895.

Schierholz, of   San  Francisco, has patented an ore crusher  which,' it is claimed, can  be operated  with much less power than  is required  to   run   tho   ordinary   forms   of such  machines.    The  patent  provides"for a  circular pan   for holding the ore, supplied with a  feed spout.   The sides of  the pan are inclined, and these are provided with wire screens which allow the  crushed ore to pass out into a discharge  spout.   At the  bottom  of this pan a  circular die is arranged  on  which the  crushing rollers  travel.    These rollers,  two  in  number,   extend    on   opposite  sides of a central driving shaft and are  connected with  this shaft by a simple  and powerful system  (if gear wheels.  Power is applied  to a horizontal shaft  and this shaft transmits  its  motion to  the vertical  drive shaft carrying  the  rollers, so that the crushing rollers are  made to  revolve   both  on   their  own  axles and about the vertical  shaft.    It  will be seen that thev will move  regularly about the. circular die, thus crushing the ore.    The frame  of the rollers  is  pto-iiled   with 'a common   form of  scrapers which move o������-er the face of  the circular die,   thus keening  it free  from clogging materials.   At the upper  end of the corn ral vertical driving shaft  a reservoir is arranged, and  connected  with this is a water pipe supported at  the upper end of the driving shaft. The  nozzle of Ibis  pipe  revojves  with  the.  shaft and is carried around and delivers  a, steady stream of water on the screens  over t!ie  openings  in  (lie side of the  pan.    This serves, to wash the material  i through the si't'ioiis into  fhe circular  discharge spout, and keeps the scteens  I'reo from clogging matter.  Sale of the Josie Mine.  The Josie mine, Trail Creek, has just  changed hands for a considerable sum,  .the purchaser being Frank C. Loriug.  who has bought out the entire interests  of G. A. and A.t H. Sonnemaun. The  Josie adjoins - the War' Eagle and Lo  Roi and stands in the front rauk-as ao  ore producer.,. There are ten-men now  working on the mine, and the new  owner intends increasingothe force.  tTo a reporter Mr.'Lorin'g said : "Trail  Creek is a wonderfully ��������� 1 ich disfrict-  Oue hundredand fifty miners are now  at work for good wages, besides those  employed in various other capacities.  This makes a lively camp,' but it will  bo livelier next summer."        '  The First Time in 75 Years.  A telegram from P.utland, Vermont,  states that for the first time in 75 years  Lake Champlairi is frozen over its entire lougth.  ��������� ���������  In the Teeth of the Storm.  The advantages of tb2 Canadian  route over the New York route in  winter is shown by the fact that the  Dominion Line steamship Labrador  arrived at Halifax last Saturday after^  noon, making the, quickest passage  ever made to that port. She left Li ver-  pool on Thursday of last week, and on  the morning of Friday arrived oil this  harbor. The snowstorm obliged bet-  to lay to until the afternoon.  Dance With a Corpse.  A scandalous scene at a wake is reported from Galwny. An old rag-  gathorei\ known as " Kitty the Rag,"  died, and a number of men and women  assembled at a wake. The place was a  sort of concert-room. It was soon proposed to have, a dance, and an American  meat box was placed in the centre of  the floor, bottom upwards, each man  in turn dancing on it to the music of a  tin whistle. At length two of the men  lifted the corpse, held it upright  against the wall, swaying it to and fro  in time, to the. music, while, another  f ellow came forward,bowed t o tbecorpse  as if (<i his partner, .and then commenced to dance a jig. This outrageous spectacle 'boomed to amuse all  present, from the peals of laughter it  provoked.  '.      r. AU

. The article on  the,first page of  today's issue, "Toe: Price of Silver," vices
not Hold out much  hope of   the vvhit"
metal taking a rise in the near futtiie.
There, is only one condition on which
the writer   bases .the least chance of
that greatly -desired  movement taking
place, and that is jn the event of Japan
,   adhering to the  silver stand tid when
���   she (settles down to ooituii.'roi.d activity
i   after   the   war 'is over, and .this -will
must likely be 'the  case, as   nor trade
with China���a siiver using country���
will  make  the  silver standard almost
compulsory in both countries.'  \Vemi.v.y
theivdook for a slight ris-e in   tin* price
, of silver, as the Orient is probably tho,
best, market,  and   recent lowering of
silver prices was-due, in a great measure to a falling   oil'  in   the demand.
,owing   to  the war in  the Mast.    P>ut
should Japan decide to adopt tiin gold
standard, in imitation of the European
monometallisL  countries,   we   may expect to'see the price of silver drop still
lower. " The only thing that will tend
to enhance the price of  that metal to
any appreciable extent, However, would
be an agreement among the European
nations to use silver at  a  fixed parity
, with   gold.      Many  prominent   silver
men in this country are urging a parity
of 16 to 1.    JJut  this is what it was
nominally before over-production sent
it down with a,run, and 20 to 1 would
probably be a greater concession  than
tbe ihonouietallists would be willing to
give.   --Even at 20 to 1 the loss to the
foreign holders of American securities
would    be   considerable,   unless   such
securities were redeemed at, gold values.
,. Silver, like every other commodity, is
dependent on the law of  supply and
demand.    There is a tremendous accumulation, of silver awaiting a demand
to   be  launched  into circulation.    Tn
tbe  U.S.  vaults  at   Washington  are
stored  'five   hundred'  million   dollars'
worth   of  silver bullion, and millions
' of dollars in silver coin  securely'��� rusting away in^tho mints at Philadelphia
and San Francisco.    There arc,' moreover, numerous silver mines in various
Western  States*0which, even without
���the aid of the Sherman Act, are pour-
���   ing forth millions of tons annually" to
, further  overload ,an   already   bloated
' market.'  With all this silver ready to
flood -the world's markets it is not at
all wonderful that Uncle Sam is very
anxious -to  have  the white metal restored-to its former monetary value.
But thero are other large  silver  producers   besides   the  United   States���
Australia, Mexico and South America,
to say nothing of our own infant industry in West  Kootenay.    All   those
facts must, militate against the restorn-
tiou of .silver to its' former high position
among tho precious metals.
The article speaks of the cost of production, ' and says that with our present methods, and under the. mo��t
favorable circumstances, silver can be
produced for 2S cents an ounce. This
may be so in Mexico or South America,
but it-is well known that the maririn
of profit, with silver at CO cents, is so
narrow that were the price to drop
just 5 cents more the mines in West
Kootenay would all shut down. And
���if this be so in a district where the
ore is the richest in the world and the
veins the largest, what would be the
case where the ore is low grade and
the veins .small? If the Mexican or i
South'American mines can he worked
nt a profit with silver at 55 cents, it is

���and I may be blamed fo-/- asking���
are these mines being worked legiti-
mately 1 Are (hey merely, having
their "eye's picked out?" This term
may lie new to some of my readers;
butjt means that Only tho ore is being
taken out of the mine; that the property is not being'rleveloped consistently
with the amount of ore brought out :
that the "addle" or waste ground i.;,
being left-.in the mine untouched : that
when the "ore in sight" is all used up
it will'cost thousands of dollars1 to ic-
move waste ground so as to,get at the
ore "hot in bight. ,.i�� it that the Siocau
mine owners are so eager to make all
they can .while silver isJiovering round
tho 60c. mark that they are neglecting
the true- mining method of " making
good as they go T If this be the true
explanation of so much ore being shipped by mines only a few months old,
then it is safe to say that tho Slocan
mines will be unsaleable when the pro-
sent, owners g'*t through with them.
I have, however, come In the conclusion, which I believe to be a true one.
that the ore bodies are so large in th��
Slocan mines that it'is simply a mattfv
of quarrying it out. and hjisring '5 to

111010; and not only thai, but no other
company could build until  the charter
had   lapsed.      The   company obtained
their charter two years ago,   and   Air.
Hume,   with   other   men   of   "known
capacity," rightly considered that, two
vtvis was quite   long enough   for  the
company to 'gat'ier   energy enough to
make a start.   Had the extension, been
granted   there   would   have   been   no
inclination   on. the company's  pari, to
lommenou   operations   for   two   years
longer.     IJefore the   IGt'n  of April the
company will have to send out men to
turn a few shovelofiil of earth  or  lose
their charter.    And this is as it should
be.       We' believe- that   Air.   Hume's
action vvilFbo upheld  by'a majority of
his 'constituents,  and we   also  believe
that his being thrown overhead by tho

(as   the   Mittiir  seems  to   think,   aiid
chuckles thereat) will bo of the utmost
"benefit   to   ��Ai\  ilume  in   his   future

The Dominion Government engineer,
F. ,C. Gamble, arrived here on Wednesday for the purpose of starting the
'.^10,0'JU job of protecting the rivet hank
from tiie bridge down towards the
smelter as far as the'money will go.
Wo gave a description of the proposed
plai>---o��-operations hist week, which
includes cribivork in the deep water
under the bridge and mattresses along
the b.tui:.' Notices weie posted calling
for contracts for getting out rock, of
which there are oOO cubic yards re-
quired. niir. Uain. Donuehy secured
tlie contract at,Yd..*0 per cubic yard, at
'which price Mr. i^oiineliy will nave to
hustle if he doesn't v. ant to lose on it.
Men applying to Foreman .Smith I01 a
job Vi'eie flabbergasted on being told
that the wages, to bo paid were $i.,r,0 a
day, as the Covei'iimoiil- intended to
make tlie money go as far as possible.
Some of the men weie compelled by
dire necessity to accept such a paitiy
remuneration, but others refused to
work at, Chinamen's wages, 'ihi.iis the
biggest cut o\cv known m ibis district
outside ol'C.P.R. work, and the precedent makes, the outlook a gloomy one

this' whole
district Will boon be 'depopulated, as it
will not he possible to buy tin; actual
necessaries oi life���or at' least to pay
for them. There are less than twenty
men at'work, and double that number
are wanted. It is a pity -Mr. Gamble
didn't bring a hundred Chinamen from
V'ictoria, but tiiio will probably lie the
general Usage a tew years hence.' Mr.
Mara has an excellent chance to win a
few laurels for himself by showing Mr.
Gamule that he has matte a mistake.

Tho  more skillful laborers are placed in the  repairing   department.    There   is   constant work for the hosjrit.'il;  also  work  to nil   (iiviers coming from the outside.
