It  is the first one in the district and the  experiment in milling this ore will be  watched with interest.  Elmore Gilmore, a country school  teacher of Eckerty, Ind., recently married a farmer's pretty daughter, and  three days afterwards a letter was received from a firm' of barristers'in,  Ireland, stating that he had fallen heir  to a fortune of $3,000,000, left by an  uncle in county Derry.  Considerable discussion has been caused in:- Victoria and   Vancouver as to  whether the "Blind Tom" now  performing there  is  the  real   Blind   Tom.  Many people think this   man ' is   too  young and too light in color, and   say  that the musical negro died years ago.

Montreal.  ��������� A quick telegram, which crossed the  American continent and. Atlantic  ocean, is reported from Victoria. The  C.P.R. telegraph, people forwarded a  dispatch from their Victoria office to  Manchester,. England, r and delivered  the reply all inside of ninety seconds,  just a,minute and a half. The Victoria  operator, Mr. Gus Morris, worked direct with Causo, the Canadian cable  terminus, whence the message was  passed to Manchester direct. , .  Win. Caldwell,* one of the pioneer'  miners of the Lake of the Woods district and late superintendent of the  Sultana mine, is in .Winnipeg to purchase machinery for a new enterprise,  which he is undertaking in connection  with W.

These gentlemen intend to open up a new.mine on  Whitensh bay, as the representatives  of a British.syndicate.  Farmers' day at the Toronto Exhibition was the largest in the  history of  that  institution,   there being 80,000  visitors and the receipts amounting to  over 819,000.    This   beats  the record  by several thousand dollars.    On Monday,  Citizens' day,   1891, the figures  were $14;399.55 ; for the same day in  1892,  tbe-^receipts   were $16,001.35;  for Farmers'  day,   Wednesday,   1891,  the sum was   16,819.00; for  Wednesday, Farmers'.day in 1892, the figures  were $16,389.60.' *  '  At Clinton Assizes last week there  was a large number of Indians���������quite!  400���������attracted by the trial of Red Bluff  Charley. The facts of_the case were  stated as follows: "\    ������ . '  Last July Red Bluff Charley, who is  an industrious, hard-working and popular Indian, returned to his home "at  Dog Creek, 20 miles from Clinton, and  caught Johnnie, another Indian, in a  compromising, position with his wife.  Charley happened to^ be1 armed, and  following his first impulse, shot Johnnie dead.   He was arrested and made  a full statement of the facts and the  grand jury returned an indictment for  murder.   The court then. began an inr  quiry as to the character of the prisoner  and itled tooneof theniostrem-rrkable'  scenes that ever took place in a British  Columbia court of justice.   The Crown  had accepted the offer of the defence to  plead guilty of manslaughter. Twenty-  two chiefs from Chile citin, Bonaparte,  Alkali Lake and other places filed into*  court and lined up by the box to, hear  the judge's admonition to the prisoner  in passing sentence.   The  wife   who  had caused the trouble was brought in  and in answer to a question said she  wanted her husliand to lie free.r '��������� Six of  the chiefs were then heard." All delivered orations in. their native tongue,  which were interpreted by J. N. Brown,  a *.weU educated-Indian*: of vJ>og Creekv  They extolled - "the good \ qualities "of  Charley, but said every ni'an should be  virtuous and good and seek heaven,  and they were content to accept'the  decree of the court. They would receive  the sentence of the court as a mandate  from, heaven and expressed the belief  that the court could not err in its judgment.   Justice Walkem complimented  them on their noble words and sentiments "and told them th.-it the law gave  them "equal protection' with the white  man.   In view of the high character of  the accused and the extreme provocation the penalty was made 18 months'  imprisonment. At the close of the trial  Charley took'leave of his friends and  the scene was a'most impressive one.  At the door of the jail he was cheered,  [from our -cobrebpondent.] i  Tacoma, Sept. 25th.  Cassassa's  famous   Midwinter Fair  band is now the Interstate Fair trand,  opening its engagement last Saturday  night.   Two regular concerts will be  rendered daily, and  on   special days  other music will he given also.   Saturday was British Columbia day, one of  the most notable occasions of the whole  season.   A better day for,the opening  could not be had.   The fair was crowded with visitors, not only from British  Columbia, but all over the Northwest,  and they gave the band a most enthusiastic welcome.  British  Columbia' day   proved   the  greatest special day of the fair season  so far.   It was successful in every way.  The arrangements ��������� were  carried  out  perfectly, and about 3,000 subjects of  the Queen   returned  to  their homes  after the, celebration was over, pleased  with 'the fair, pleased with Tacoma,  and profound admirers of the energy,  push and perseverance shown by the  people who conceived and carried out  the fair project.   Two large excursions  were run from British Columbia.   One  from Vancouver on the steamer Yose-  mite brought about 1,500. The steamer  Islander, from Victoria, brought even  a larger party.   On board were Lieut.-  Goverhor Dewdney and Mrs. Dewdney,  the Mayor of Victoria and city officials,  the president of the B.C. Agricultural  Association, the president of the-Nan-  aimo Board of Trade, Lieut.-Col. Prior,.  M.P., commanding , the B.C., Garrison  Artillery, and other distinguished persons. ' The headquarters band of the  B. C. G. A. accompanied" the party, and  the band of No. 5 company, B. C. G. A.  went with the excursion from Vancouver.   These two bands, which are both1'  excellent musical  organizations, gave  concerts during the day in * the  liberal  arts building and elsewhere, about the '  grounds.       ' '" -     .'     ' '   ' (1  '; The,B._C. visitors had & taste of Ta-  comaV hospitality even before" they  reached the city. A reception committee went out in a special boat,1 and met  the incoming excursionists about ten  miles up the sound and escorted them  to the wharf. The entertainment of  the visitors during their stay was properly looked after. The ladies were'eu-  tertajood by vth������ Ladipn'.Auiciliiisy of  Tacoma~Chamber of Commerce.  The Seattle Post-Intelligencer is giving away free tickets, of admission to  all children in* the Northwest for'the  paper's celebration. 'A special boat load  of youngsters from Seattle will be sent  over at the P-I's expense! -       v \  Four days are to be given up to the  celebration now being arrauged by the  Grand Army of the Republic. They  are October 1, 2, 3 and 4. , The" event  promises to be the biggest gathering  of old soldiers ever held in the   North-  ' COINAGE OF. SILVER,IN,THE U. S.  Since the Cleveland administration  came   into   power   1,957,223. standard  silver  dollars   have   been  coined,,  of  which 520,070 have been seigniorage.  - ��������� Prior to ��������� the .1st  July,  1890, silver  dollars to the  amount of $38,318,294  were coined from the bullion purchased.  The so-called gain in  the:, seigniorage  arising from this coinage * was $0,687,-  S03, which was paid  into tho,treasury  as miscellaneous receipts',,leaving $29,-  480,461 to be held as a fund to provide  for the redemption of treasury notes as  provided by law.   At the  beginning of  tho present administration someof this  $29,480,401 was still   in   the treasury,  and  standard  silver   dollars 'to  the  amount of $1,057,223 have iieen coined  since that time. Of this last sum, however, $520,079 was seigniorage, leaving  $1,077,144 to be held in the treasury. It  appears,   therefore,   that   the    whole  coinage under the Act has been $31,-  005,487, and that the amount to be held  iu the, treasury for the redemption of -  purchases,was $30,557,605.   Of this sum  $4,121,000 has been used ih redemption  of the notes and that amount has been  retired and cancelled.  As shown above, there were held ih  the treasury at the beginning of this:  administration* $20,480,461 in silver  coined from bullion purchased under  the Act of July 14,1800. 'Notwithstanding the fact that $1,057,223 has been,  coined since that time, there is now on*  hand only $26,180,187.  ,    .

The  Toronto  Monetary ,Thnes 'says':     "American  buyers show little or no inclination to  purchase' stock, and  are  making attempts to break our market quotations.  The transactions made are*upon a basis  of values slightly lower than the sales  at'the close of last year.   The" better  grades of lumber, however, are weak  stock-at  the  moment, and"* sales can  only be effected by a considerable shading in prices. The operations of American   buyers  have  so  long  been of a  hand-to-mouth character that the lumber yards in the eastern States must  contain light stocks, and it is but reasonable to expect a good" trade next  spring or later in the fall.

Goldsmid, the  well-known'ex-manager of the Vancouver Opera House, died last Saturday night in St. Joseph's Hospital, after a long and painful illness caused  by cancer in the stomach. Mrs. Goldsmid, summoned all the way from England, arrived just in time to be with  her husband in his dying moments.  Deceased was in his 4:*nd year, and  was the son of Sir Frederick K. J.  Goldsmid,   Cart.

The only vessels captured were the Victoria sealers  Wanderer and Favorite, both of which  have been discharged. Great Britain  had but one vessel in the .sea, while the  United States had nine. In a private  letter from Washington, the Secretary  of the Navy, Mr. Herbert, has expressed a determination to send only the  same number of revenue cutters next  season as do the British.  A bluejacket named Reece, of H.M.  S. Royal  Arthur,   at Esquimalt, was  killed on Saturday evening by a companion  named- Perry,-   who  playfully  discharged at him  a  loaded . shotgun.  Perry did not know it was loaded, and  he is now distracted with grief.    Midshipmen Allington and Napier of the  ship had been on a hunting expedition  in the afternoon, and - When   they  returned about 7 o'clock the guns  were  given to Perry, who is a " sideboj'," to  take below." Having laid one down on  a chest,-he pointed  the  other, at   his  friend Reece, and   with tthe  remark,  "Look out, or I will shoot you,"-pulled  the'trigger.    Reece received' the,,full  charge of gunshot in  his   left breast  and died instantly, the terrible wound  almost cleaving   his   heart.    He was  about 18 years of age and Perry is  a  year older.    The boys entered  the naval training ship at tbe same time and  have been fast friends ever since. - An  inquiry into the circumstances connected with the accident was held on  the  'ship, and steps were taken with a view  to prevent a repetition of the carelessness ��������� by which   the  loaded   gun  was  brought aboard.  ' Mr. Jos.  Murray, fish' commissioner  for Alaska, who has just returned from  the north, gives a gloomy account of  .the seal and salmon  fisheries in * that'  country, he says :   "Unless some step's  are taken there"will shortly  he no fur-,  bearing animals  in Alaska.   The ad-'  venturers who flock in- there are rapid-  lyexterininating the animals, and the  companies who are canning salmon are  no better.-  Fox skiiis range in valuet  "from $10 to $200.- A party' goes on an!  island  with",a  supply of��������� strychnine."  Bait is poisoned, and the' foxes eat it.  rThey are then skinned and a stake is  made.    The carcasses 'are**'eaten   by  crows, and the> birds die.   Foxes that  missed the poisoned bait eat the poison-1  "ed birds, and in^shoi** time there is"  -not a fox on-tfle ��������� jlsland-i^ The seal fish-'  eries are fast playing 'out.   Five "years  agof there was no1* trouble in getting  100,000 skins. This year, though "allowed to take 20,000 skins, ��������� the company  succeeded in getting about 16,000.   The  salmon fishers spread their nets at the  mouths of the rivers up which the fish,  endeavor  to  go  ih order to  spawn.  Every one is'taken and as a result there  are no young, fish.   Unless, something  is done soon Alaska, instead of being a  source of revenue to the' government,  will   be   unable   to  support  even ��������� its  native population."  ��������� Nancy  '    ' '   " TURF' NOTES.4  ...

Ba-wdeu,'of  Kingston, read - a paper ou " The Nationalization of Mines."    Mr. Sawden  advanced the theory - that  all  mining  operation's in  the  country   should be-  conducted by the Government under a  system of day labor, and with the object  of providing employment rather than  of making a profit out of the industry.  He submitted a draft of a bill, which'  he maintained should be passed for the  attainment of this object.'  Several* of  those present took part in the* discussion   which- followed,"   but the views  set forth in tlie paper met' with   little  encouragement    ' '     , -  , Continuous advertising, even if it be  only a small announcement, pays the  advertiser the best in the long run.  Spasmodic advertising, like "spasms"of  any kind, is unsatisfactory. To secure  the very best results, year in and year  out, you must keep your name and  busineas before the public. Only by  so doing can you hope to keep from  being forgotten when the time comes  that your would-be-customers wish to  purchase what they want.

TriEKK is'a lot of valn.ible lime* bc-  irifi- wasted if the two Governments intend doing anything towards proli-ot-  ing the river bank this lall. ' The water  i.s now low enough for either piling or  building a.wing dam. Mr. Gamble, the  Dominion engineer, may know bis  own busines*. host, but even he is liable  ' to make a mistake, and he will make  a very great mistake if he procras.bi-  nates until the snow conies. It would  be easy uoik now to dig foundations,  ��������� but later on five or six feet of snow-  would be an impediment that would  make the work a costly one. Mr. Davie  says we need havo no fear but that the  work will be done, but he'j cannot say  when Mr. Gamble will be ready to commence. If the Dominion Government  intends hanging back until the decision  of the Privy Council is rendered in the  Farwell case, there is little likelihood  of a commencement being made this  year.          FREE TRADE.       -;  ,      -  , The Province, which, considering its;  brief existence, has taken an astonish-  " ingly prominent position amongst the  Pacific Coast journals, ably expounds  every question it takes up.' Not the  least of these questions is that of free  trade, to which "it devotes a whole page  in reply to the rather undecided opinions put forth by this paper three weeks  ago. ' Like the Jew apostrophizing the  dead porker, one might say : " Verily,  thou almost persuadest me to be a���������  free-trader." But between the theoretical adducements put forward by the'  Province and the actual working of the  free trade, doctrine there is a very  great difference. Actual experience of'  its working1 in England has shown that  it injures as many as it benefits. What,  has become of the- lace factories at.  ' Tiverton, Honiton. and Nottingham ;  the glove factories at Biddeford and,  Torrington ; the ribbon industry at  ���������Coventry; the carpet manufactories at,  Axminster? All killed by the admission of cheaper made goods from the,  continent, which could undersell them  in their own market. , Free trade in  England drove British iron manufacturers to the United States back in  the 70's, and hundreds of British arti-  zans and craftsmen followed their employers' 'example;���������left a free trade  country for a protected one. We,must,  admit, however, that at that time the  United States,were the English ironmasters' best customers, and tint the  American tariff bore heavily on British  .iron. But .if this docs not actually  prove that England lost these manufacturers through free trade it proves'  that the United States gained them  by protection. Free-traders say if one  industry is destroyed and workmen  are thrown out of employ, let them  turn their hand to something else.  Only an . anarchist or socialibt can be  so'callous towards his fellow-man as to  utter such an inhuman sentiment. .A  man cannot turn his hand to anything  ' ,else when he is pa.st middle age. at  least not with competence enough to  earn'a living for himself and family.  While believing that free trade would  !>enent our province,' because we have  no m.muf.icturies to injure, we .see no  chance of getting it. Neither Mr.  Laurier, Mr. Fruser nen any other  gentleman of the party could explain  whence the country would derive its  revenue if the custom-house wete discarded. Of the ������30,000,000 of revenue received by the Dominion -?'20,000,-  000 are rai-ed from custom-, fluids.  How would the Liberals make up this  deficit, two-thirds of the whole revenue 1 We have no wealthy class here  as in England, and a Uk on luxuries  we mid hi ing in but a wrfiall fraction e.t"  the twenty million dollars a year. A  personal or direct tix would be- even  more objectionable than the pipsent  mode of raising revenue.  will not be* protected at .ill *J Wil" th''  small amount of duty between %) pel  cent, and '!5 per cent.' ropre.-'Oiif the  whole of their profits ?_ That they have  hitherto been able to eompet" in the  nun-keif of the world is Ulustr.ited by  the fact that. M.is*.e^y-Tl,u-i-is machiiies  are used in Kninland and Australia. Ti  a reduction of only 15 percent, in ihe  duty on agricultural machineiy is sufficient to drivtt :i Canadian iii.inuiac-  turer out. of business, what becomes of  the frre.it outcry against permitting the  bloated manufacturer' to become -a,  millionaire at -the: expense oi* tlie poor  fanner? Again, if a 15 per cent, le-  duction will .-.hut up a Canadian business, what would be the result, it tho  whole tariif were lemoved? While the  Uni. ed States will welcome the 31a* s<?y-  Ilarris Co. with open arms, the United  SUites alien law will prevent th*1 O m.-i-  di.-in employes from going over there  to work lor the firm.

case of Samuel Hill will come up tot-
trial. It will be remembered that Hill
shot an Indian named Cultus Jim at
Galena Bay, Arrow Lake, on the 11th
of May last. The Indian, who was accompanied by his squaw, ordered Hill
to vacate some laud, claiming that it
belonged to his tribe.- As the'Indian
became very aggressive, Hill took -up
his rifle and ordered him off." Cultus
Jim took his rifle from - the squaw,
pointed it at Hill and both "fired 'to-'
gether. The'Indian was hit, hut--ran
away, while the bullet from his rifle
almost grazed Ffill's neck. Hill'fired
again and the Indian fell. dead. The
coroner's "jury brought* in a verdict of
justifiable homicide, but 'early in June
Jlill was ,'arrosted, brought -to-r Rtvel--
stoke aiul tried before' Justices Fr.i.-k-r
and Coursiei'. The squaw gave evidence, and after a lengthy-hearing-
Hill was committed to the assizes
whioh;was to have been held on June
I5th', but was postponed. It was not
until the end or June that Hill was released on bail���himself ih $500 and four
business ineii of the town became his

inunrawnuuaiAH PAGE 4.  THE KOOTENAY MAIL.  THINGS SAID AND DONE ABOUT  TOWN.  [BY   DIOGE.VES.J  Probably few people are aware of the  mpiance attaching to the wedding  which took place here last Saturday  morning. The bride and bridegroom  bad never seen each other before the  previous evening, when the young lady  arrived in on the Pacific Express. The  bridegroom came up from the Lower  Kootenay metropolis by steamer on the  previous Monday, and had put in the  intervening days wandering around  town with a mutual friend and picturing to himself the joys of wedded life,  with now and then a flush of expectancy as to the good looks or otherwise  of his coming bride. The'mutual friend  in the cruse was Mr. William Starmer  Smith, of Sunnyside, Victoria, who had  written the young lady that he had a  nice young man for her if she would  come out, and also wrote in the same  strain to his friend in Lower Kootenay.  Both were willing, and a correspond-  ' ence ensued.. Mr. Smith had been in  town about ten days awaiting the arrival of the unacquainted lovers' from  two opposite points of the compass,  when, after introducing them to each  other, he would' join their hands and  say, "Bless you, my children, be happy!"  The long journey across sea and land,  commenced in fear and doubt, ended in  bliss, here in Revelstoke. The young  couple spent their honeymoon in town,  ���������putting, up at tbe Victoria, and on  Tuesday morning, left on the Lytton  for down river and home.,,Conscious  of having brought his philanthropic  work to a successful termination Mr.  Smith departed for his home Sunday  night.        ' *       ' ,'       *"*  -        < e*    <  I wonder some of our enterprising  townsmen do  not   endeavour  to try  their hand at street lighting these wet,  dark nights.   An oil  lamp on a post  outside some of our business establish*,  merits would not only be a^blessing to  the wayfarer' stumbling along in the  darkness, but would' also enhance the  attractiveness of the store that adopted  .   it; ;'The. expense would -not be very  great, as the lamps could be removed  at closing  time,   say   eleven' o'clock.  '   After that' hour those who choose to  be abroad should, like Diogenes, carry  their own lantern.   Ladies, especially,  would .lie thankful' for such a , boon.  Mr..Cowan, I see, has inaugurated the  project by, a>ery good light, outside  his officei;but as it is at,the far end of  the street, where there is comparatively, little 'traffic after .dark, its benefits  are not felt by the many.." How cheery-  it .would look to see a. few street lamps  dispersing-the gloom which pervades  our town during the wet, dark nights  which prevail here in the late fall and  early ��������� winter.   , Who of our   business  .men are going to be .public spirited  enough to follow a good example? "���������  * *     '  - . '        *  , ���������  I see our ��������� ubiquitous townsman, Mr.  Thomas Cadman, isLgoing around with  a list of the various lot-owners in town  for the purpose',* he says, of getting1  the correct numbers of the lots and the  correct names of the owners. Further,  he condescends to enlighten the curious  by stating that the Government intends to collect taxes on all lots in the  townsite. Asked as to the author of  this bright idea, the genial Thomas  says it is Mr. Smith. Smith 1 Had it  been Brown, or Jones or Robinson one  would not feel so contumacious over  the matter. But Smith! So this Smith,  whoever he is, thinks he' can collect  taxes from land which people have  paid for but cannot tell, whether they  own it or not. Smith is a genius, there  is no doubt about that. But this idea  of taxing land which cannot be registered certainly lends color to the reiterated charges brought by the Opposition journals���������that the Provincial  trensury in empty!  John D.

The precedent set by tbe Dominion  Government recently 3hould be followed by our citizens in this mutter We  should combine to resist the imposition  of taxes until the townsite dispute is settled and registration allowed. Then, and  not till then, shall we l>e xlad to drop  our nickels in Mr. Smith's assessment  hat. The fact of the Government having allowed tbe tux on Hevelstoke lots  to lapse for so many years because titles  could not be registered is a strong reason why it should not he imposed nowt  ���������us titles cannot lie registered yet. But  tbe dispute may be settled within thirl ex t three months, and in that case  there will not not remain the slightest  objection to commence pitying taxes  from the 1st of January next, and the  over-astute Smith may work his little  scheme without bloodshed. Otherwise  let me advise Smith to read up the history of a certain Boston tea party.  * ���������  ���������  Why is it that the Dominion officials  are so apathetic in all matters pertaining to the welfare of the people of this  district/, especially the Post-office pee>  pie? A peyjt-office was granted to the  Trout Lake City people some two or  three months ago, arid C. IJ. Hume was  appointed postmaster. But the office  is still non est,-and letters from Trout  Lake still take.about a month to reach  outride points. Complaints are pouring in thick'and fast from the Trout  Lakers that they can get little or no  mail fnim Kevelstoko, nnd as for nowr-  papers, why    they   hardly    know   yet  (Continued on jiat/e 2.)
