BAKER 'STKEE3*  While here the Premier was waited  upon by a delegation from 4he South  Kootenay Board of Trade- consisting of  R. E. Lemon, president ; Geo. A. Bige-  low, secretary-treasurer ; /and. John  Houston, and talked almost- to death.  The delegation had..two sit tings with the  Premier and are more than satisfied  with, the result of their interviews.  Ttic Squatters Case.  The case of the squatters who have  erected houses on government lots in defiance of warnings from the Land Commissioner's office, was first taken up.  There are six or seven of these cases and  for the past week they have been on the.  ragged edge, by reason of a command  from the Land Commissioner's office  that they " move off the earth,"  When a man wished to build a house  two years or so ago he .squatted on the  best looking government lot he could  find and went ahead with his improvements, being always fortunate enough  to have the lot knocked down to him at  the government auction which follow.ed.  Thus'in a."way a precedent was established which got several Nelson men in a  corner this summer.  In August la^t year a number of applications were made at the.Gold.Commissioners office for permission to squat on  government lots. The request was communicated to the office of the Lands and  .works department at Victoria, and was  answered in most unmistakable terms  that the government could not consent  to any such practice. Despite this those  desiring lots squatted, and in several instances erected costly residences.  The officers of the Board of trade  sought to extricate them from their  difficulty and also to secure a sale of the  government lots within the townsite.  It required all the persuasive eloquence  of the delegation to touch the Premier's  heart, ou this line but he finally intimated that lie would endeavor to arrange the matter by bringing on a government sale of lots within thirty days  to be. followed by a second auction in  the fall. The feeling of the delegation  being that if lots are offered at reasonable prices a number of persons' will  build houses.  Speaking to the Mi nek the Premier  announced with reference to the squatters that it was a "dead open and shut  game" that the present would be the last  occasion upon which squatters rights  would receive any consideration whatever.  Those V. I*. It. ImiiroYemeufH.  The question of town improvements  was taken up and it was explained that  while, the government had made all the  improvements that could reasonably be  expected the Canadian Pacific Railway  had been remiss in making the amount  of improvements which devolved upon  them. The railway company it was understood was to spend an amount equal  to that expended by the government on  improvements, some ,$2100,G0, but up to  date it is said the railway company** expenditures do not exceed $500.  In this connection the Premier promised to place the matter before the proper O. P. R. officials with a view of having the work done. He will recommend  that the sewer up Ward creek receive  attention from the railway company.  Civfe  ttovemiuent.  The conversation then drifted upon  matters of local government and the  question of " incorporation" which  has  4.N -E^Jjp^iN .     J5.   U*   developed into a Board of Trade night  mare was turned over. The Premier is  not a sanguine in corporation ist.  _ He has an opinion of his own on this  as well as most other matters and he expressed it in the same delibeiate style  which characterizes the greater number  of his utterances. He favors the election of a local council elected in much  the same manner as the five wardens,  in which council the Gold Commissioner  shall sit. He thinks that such a council  could be handled satisfactory in the  interests of the town, and the constitution of the body could be legalized by a  special act of parliament.  County Court Sessions.  The inconvenience suffered by the  merchants by -.reason of the infrequency  i>f the sessions of the county court? were  touched upon, and after considerable  ���������discussion 'the delegation gathered the  impression -from the Premier that he  ���������would' endeavor if possible to have sessions of dhe county court held in the district every sixty days at the outside.  The   BVttj~iScbts   Act.  The repeal of the Petty Debts act was  discussed and the repeal depreciated in  by members of the delegation. They  explained to the Premier that in view of  the fact that the country is over run by  all kinds of adventurers and tinhorn  merchants and business men from all  parts of the globe, the reputable merchants and business men doing business  iu the district wanted every protection  which the government could throw  around them. v^  In reply the Premier stated that while  Le had ne\er favored the existance x>i  tlie act upon the statutes, from a city  standpoint, he could readily understand  iht- necessity for such an act in an outlying district like West; Ivooienay, and  he also intimated uiaU something ungliu  be done toward" pricing a similar act  upon the statutes again with reference  only to such districts as West Kooveuiiy.  Surface   flights. -  Those who have been troubled o\er  surface rights need not give themselves  needless alarm. The delegation seemed  froui the Premier au mterpi eiacion of  the famous Mineral Act Amendment  Act. It is on 11 line witu the letter  which he wrote to R. E. Lemon some  mouths ago. The government does not  intend that the ace shall be iu any way  retrospective and will not withhold surface rights in the crown grants of any  claims which were located prior to April  11, 18,93.  The Premier explained that (he misunderstanding was occasioned by a misconstruction placed 1.pun the act by the  Assistant Attorney ueneral, in his absence, and the Lands and Works Department. A number of crown grants  have been issued under such misunderstanding the crown grants having been  withheld but these will be recalled and  new crown grants issued in their stead  The Premier hiA ibis morning tor  Kaslo en route for New Denver and Na-  kusp. wheie he wnl see what there is to  ace of the country, -."..'

WILD-OAT MAN 17ABEED  A neat little, piece of quick work took  place in Nelson on Thursday afternoon. During the course of dip day-  several business houses were entered by  a man w ho after asking the price of half  the goods in sight, would make some  small purchace.        ' c  In every case a small check was tendered in payment. The cash above the  price or" the goods was paid over, and  the man went on his way rejoicing. In  the course of his wanderings he strolled  into a Baker street store. Selecting  a article which struck his fancy, he tendered in payment for the same-a. check  on A. W. Wright, the Kaslo   mci chant.  The check was not large, but the merchant thought it\just as well to make  some icquiries regarding funds, ��������� and  quietly slipped on'tX and presented the  check" at the Bank\of Montreal. The  bank people concludeU to look the. matter up, and a little inquiry developed  the fact that the check''was, in all probability, a forgery. The\check was returned to the man unpaid.  The bank management telephoned to  Kaslo, and A. W." Wright c\nuie down to  Nelson. In the mean tiuiethVshours had  rolled by, and it -was .near tVain .time.

One or two of them nrJS,  icnown to have taken part in shady transactions. The business men of this section will do weii to watch .carefully all  paper offered in the near future, as it is  supposed that an effort will be made to  issue moie or less bogus stuff of this  kind.  The sooner these people awaken to the  fact that this is a peculiarly unhealthy  locality for such gentry, and rid the  town of their unwelcome presence, the  butter. The "one, two, three" sryle of  ladling out justice to offenders against  the law, which is peculiar- to this side of  the line, usually has the desired effect,  and has kept Nelson in the past a model  town with regard to law and Older.  -\  BEHRING SEA DECISION  Britain  He    Tried   to    Work    Eastern' Capitalist* si  Set of ISogns Claims.  Ottawa, Aug. 15.���������Ducles Samson,  the Frenchman who induced several  Canadian capitalists to go into a gold  mining scheme 5(KJ miles north of the  Canadian Pacific railway in the wilds of  British Columbia, has been arrested by  five Indians Who went in pursuit of him.  Arthur Lamierro, one of the victims,  accompanied Samson, and when the latter lejirned he was to be accompanied  he made for the woods, leaving his wife  behind him. Indians were put on his  track and ran him down near Black-  water, half naked and starving. Lamierro, who arrived in Ottawa to-night,  said when Samson understood the situation he threatened to shoot, bur. was  overpowered and disarmed. He afterwards escaped to the woods, where he  remained until c.ipf ured.  Samson lived, in New York ten years  ago, and first went to New Orleans,  where his record is said to have been  bad.

A decision has been reached, at last in  the Behring Sea arbitration affairs. As  ���������has beeu expected for some lime the decision is favorable to the claims of Great  Britain.- On the five, questions submitted for arbitration each ruling was practically against the claims of the United  States.  Exclusive jurisdiction over- the waters  of Behring seas, and the right to protect  the fur- seal wherever found in those  waters was in substance tne claim of  the United States and this has been disallowed.  The regulations devised for the future  of the sealing business are, not so favorable.    They are in brief :  1. That no pelagic sealing is to be allowed within 6*0 miles of the seal islands.  2. That no seals are to be. killed either  in the ocean or- Behring sea during May,  June and July.  Ii. That no firearms are to be used in.  killing seals in Belu ing Sea.  There is as yet no advice as to just  how the seals are to be killed. Pr/Uably  they can be rounded up with a dip net.  While the (1'^.-������i;;i --is te.-n'nically in  favor of Gt.-^it..Bi-itain, iheUmted States  can be .Veil satisfied with the outcome  as-thr.ruljis practically give them all  thev; wore asking for.

He  did not undertake to say < hat the president    was   opposed    to    bimetallism .-or  would  not give, executive  sanction, to  the measure to coin silver at a commercial  ratio with gold, but he did  undertake to say the president's message was  most significant for what it failed to say.  He undertook to say, with the greatest  respect   for- the  president  and   .vithout  the  slightest  doubt   of   his   honesty   of  purpose, that when he failed 10 say one  word   in respect to bimetallism   he. certainly meant that consideration   of the  question of free coinage of silver-, at any  ratio, was so impract icable. that  it dm  not need executive notice./  The business men of /London, said  Senator-Vest, before the' closing of the  Indian mints, were pleading with the  people of Great Britain in favor of bimetallism as the only sure foundation  for lmaucial existence and declaring  that silver- really fj/uctuafed much less  than gu.d. It was  of silver-   that b  It was legislali'A'n���������legislation in Gei  manyanu the''United Srates. How  could it be expected that silver would  retain its val.ue when those two great  nations took/away the monetary use. of  silver-.

Washington, Aug. 13.���������Before a small  audience the silver debate in the house was  continued this morning.  Wheeler of Alabama, continued his  speech;  Morse, Republican', of Massachusetts,  followed Wheeler. He heartny approved  the president's view in regard to the repeal  of the, purchasing clause of the Sherman  act, though.he believed the present depression was not entirely due to that act.  It came from the threats of the Democrats  to pass tariff legislation.  Harter, Democrat, of Ohio, followed in  favor of repeal. He had little controversies with the Republicans, in which he  charged the Republican ������>arty with being  responsible for the present situation, but  eulogized Sherman tor his attitude at "the  time of the passage of the law which bears  his name. Instead of being abused, Sherman should receive the grateful thanks of  the whole people.  Harter was followed by Ilendrix Democrat of New York, in favor of the repeal of  the Sherman law. Hendrix's speech was  listened to attentively and he was followed  by Bowers of California.  A  new Railway  under Construction.

The Senate.  Washington, Aug. 13.���������It is reported  that a very significant occurrence happened in the senate finance committee Thursday. .  A motion was made authorizing the  chairman to introduce a bill to amend the  law governing the issue of national bank  notes, to permit the issue to the par value  of the bonds deposited as security theie-  for. This was agreed to, after discussion,  by a majority of 2 to 1.  Then it wan proposed to authorize the  chairman to report a bill to repeal the silver purchase clause of the Sherman law,  \vhereupon Vest; of Missouri, is said to have  made a speech.denouncing the proposition !  and'notifying its fneuds ttu.t no bill which  ignored silver could past the senate. |  Under the  influence of the remarks of;  Senator Vest, the committee  unanimously  reconsidered its action on the currency action and adjourned. ,  The  Washington, Aug. 13.���������The senate  Democratic caucus committee has adjourned till Monday, having failed to agree on  any plan of procedure. The fact that the  house has agreed and has two weeks of  discussion relieves the senate of the necessity for hurry, and probably no settled  poiicy will be reached till ��������� near the end of  the house discussion.  Aug. 14.���������In the senate to-day Senator  Voorhees introduced a bill authorizing the  issue of national bank notes to the full face  value of bonds deposited. The bill was  accompanied by a letter from Secretary  Carlisle urging its immediate passage.  This bill would add $1U,OOU,UUO to" the circulation. It was referred to the finance  committee.  Numerous petitions on the silver question were presented and referred ana one  for the annexation of tne Hawaiian islands,  the latter coming from the San Francisco  cliamber of commerce.  Senator Palmer of Illinois introduced a  bill to provide for the erection of a government building at Chicago on the present post office site, to be finished in eighteen months at a cost of four millions.  Senator Hill of'.New York introduced a  resolution declaring ib to be the sense of  the senate that no thing.but financial legislation be undertaken during the present  sesssou. I Laid on the table.  Senator Vest then addressed the senate  on his resolution in favor of bimetallism  aud the free coinage of gold and silver.  He likened the Sherman act to '��������� a houseless and homeless dog without a kennel to  hide his dishonored head," but declared  that he would not vote for its repeal without a guarantes^ of silver as a money metal.  At a late hour to-night Senator White,  member of the steering committee of the-  The weal her still continues warm and  but few of the peaks and mountain tops  in sight show any snow. The number of  prospectors passing through on their  way to the ranges is steadily increasing.  The news from the mountains is most  encouraging.    The trail up Healy creek  will be commenced very soon,   and  will  make a large and most important section  of the principal mineral   range easy  of  access from  Trout lake.    It   has   been  proposed to build a,-trail from  the head  of the South Fork of the Lardeau to the  head of Healy creek,   so as  to  connect  the two trails.    This matter is, however-,  in abeyance for the present, the majority  of the settlers and the prospectors being  of the opinion that every available dollar appropriated should be reserved for  the construction of the wagou road from  the Northeast arm to Trout Lake City.  A. Abrahamaon .and his partner- returned on Thursday from   their  claims  bringing some fine specimens of ore  with them.  A. Jenkins, ��������� superintendent' of the  Bunker- Hill mine in the Otieur d'Alene  mountains, is at the Silver Cup inine for  the purchase of which he is now negotiating.  A. H. Harrison left town on ;Monday  for his claim adjoining the Abbott  group.  Another strike of nickel was reported  yesterday, but no particulars are as yet  at hand.  Messrs Butler and jJ>icL*=p.r'. members  of the Monte Oristo mining company,  accompanied by John Kirku'p government agent for the district, and A. Tattle, arrived this morning. -Messrs  Butler and Dickson will visit the Great  Northern mine to-morrow with the intention of negotiating for its purcease  on behalf of the company. The Great  Northern, although not a very high  grade ore, is so easily worked and reduced, as to be extremely valuable even  as compared with most ores giving a  much higher assay.  Charles Mather-son, one of our best  knowu pioneers, reports a strike which  is claimed to eclipse anything hitherto  discovered. He has placed his stakes  upon a new vein of almost solid metal  six feet in width, samples of which run  800 ozs in silver- to the ton. Matherson's  constitutional smile is 'now broader  than ever.  Mr.   Leroy   recently    brought    down  from his new claim samples which average 500 ounces in silver to the ton. j  J. O. Piper of the traris-pontine   ward I  has been suffering for 'some  days   from j  blood poisoning supposed to   have  been !  caused by some poisonous plantoi-shrub.  While not actually serious, it is   sufficiently   troublesome  to   call   for   proper  medical  treatment,  so  Piper left   this  morning for- Revelstoke.  Mr. Biackburn is at present sojourning at Thompson's landing. It is probable that he will complete the purchase  of several of the claims, which he bonded  last year.  J. W. Haskins passed .through town  this morning on his way to Ins old prospecting ground.   He was accompanied  by Mr. Thompson the movernment trail  inspector, who" is en route for Healy  creek. j   .  Messrs. Butler and. Dickson of the  Monte Cristo mining company left town  on Monday after their trip up the mountain to the Great Northern claim. They  expressed a high opinion of the claim,  and iu fact with the country generally.  It is probable that the Great Northern  will be bonded at an early date.  Mr. Jenkins of the Bunker Hill mine  has completed his arrangements with  regard to the Silver Cup, and intends to  have a number of men at work on the  property in two or three weeks. He  proposes to commence shipping the ore  as soon as a suitable amount can be  raised to the surface. The Silver Cup  lead is of unusual richness, the only apparent drawback being the small width  of the vein, 22 inches. It appears, however, to be easily got out auu not refractory.  Several specimens of auriferous rock  have been brought, in   during the  week  some samples of which assay from  8  to  10 ounces of the precious  metal  to  the  ton.    One claim is said to  run  over 12  ounces to the ton, but no regular  assay  has as yet been made of it.  , Some more nickel  claims  have  been  located, and several samples of ore have  been shipped out with the object, of obtaining estimates of the  cost  of reduction, etc.    The tirst discovery  of. nickel  ill   this district  beirrg only  some   four  weeks old, it is not yet known with any  degree of certainty whether it  will   pay  to work it in the face of the high transportation rates.    It is, however, the  opinion of several  practical   miners  that |  (tie  nickel  iu this  district, if found  iu  iany quantity,   will   eventually  become  more valuable than the galena.  ;   Mr.   K. E. H. Mannsel   who, in  company with J. Kinman has been engaged  in making lumber for Cook & Hamilton,  is on   the   list   of   sick   and   wounded.  While   chopping    Mr.    Mannsel's    axe  glanced off a knot and struck  his  left  foot above the instep, laying it Open for  the length of a linger- and severing some  of the sinevvs.    He is  still  able  to  get  about a little with the aid of a pair nf  cratches but it will probably be a month  ^before he can'dispense--with their assistance, altogether.  A Messrs. Cook & Hamilton expect to  have their new hotel completed by the  20th in'st. It Will be the largest buildipg  in Trout Lake city, having a frontage  of 70 feet. Meantime "Tom Hamilton  drives a rushing trade at the temporary  istarid-across the street.  Mr. A. H. Harrison returned on Friday from his trip to the mountains. He  reports favorably on the claims visited.  BA.MiI?>ft HOUSES.  BANK  OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA  HOTELS.  (incorporated by Royal Charter, iB6a.)

The fact that the citizens of Nelson  have been public spirited enough to  erect and equip a hospital is no reasonable excuse for burdening the willing  ones with foreign patients.  There is just now at our doors a railroad, in course of construction, and as is  common in such cases the men employed in the work are taxed to maintain a  hospital and corps of attendants. As is  also common, the men are not, to say  the least, encouraged to remain after  they are able to leave the institution.  The result has been that of late several  applications for admission to the city  hospital, coming from men who should  have been the wares of the railroad company. r  Nice destinctions are made. If a man  works only one day he is taxed $1,00 for  hospital dues, and if he has quit work  an hour he is cut off from the protection  for which he has paid.  The railroad hospital is a money-making institution for the company, and  would be if every man who paid a dollar  received a guarantee of care for one  month in case of illness during the  month for which he paid.  While for the sake of humanity these  people should be cared for the charge  should not fall upon the citizens of Nelson and the district.

IN TRYING TIMES.  Many years  ago  a  celebrated  political  pamphleteer said to the  American  people,  in the midst of a life and death  struggle,  "These be the times which try men's souls."  The wheels of time have revolved ma.,y  times since then, and again we have reached, the "times which try men's souls"under  a strain often harder to bear than the  bat-  . v     ties of those olden days.  In the midst of the crash of financial in-  situtions and the stagnation of business,  the busy wheels of manufacture have often  ceased to hum, and the clink of the miners hammer is heard no more in sections  where it has not been, stilled before in  years. Vast regions are threatened with  total collapse after years of vigorous prosperity.  All of this has of course combined to  render the people of this region uneasy  from the fear that sooner or later the gen-  eral'and widespread panic will reach here  and the loss of the toil of years will be the  result.  There is no section in western America  that has less to really fear than has the  town of Nelson and the surroimdiug country. There are certain meta.'s Avhich tho  progress of civilization render more and  more valuable each year. Of these copper  is ony of the highest in rank. No other  mejial serves so well in the manifold uses''  ���������--ib which it is put in connection with the  ever increasing application of electricity.  The uses of lead are too well known   to  need recapitulation.  Gold,  just now especially, is  a  handy  thing to have in the house.  Those who are familiar with the resources of the country around Nelson and  those who read the Miner of July 15th  are aware that within a radius of 15 miles  from this point can be found all of these  desirable minerals iu large and permanent  quantities. Inmost cases a few hundred  ounces of silver go with each two of the  ore, andAihis might, as a speculation be  saved in the form of bullion until the world  of finance recovers from its fit of temporary insanity.  The copper in the Toad mountain mines,  especially the Hall mines group, will keep  that property going in any event short of  a fine for nroducing silver.  The possibilities of the gold belt of this  section are hardly known yet, but every  irjdication would point toward the supposition that frum the south side of Toad  mountain comes the gold which has formed  miles of rich placer ground along the Salmon river and its tributaries.  A nur.iber of good gold leads have been  located in this belt. Some of them have  been worked and are now valuable properties.  "With Tvoper development Nelson can  run at> a prosperous .town simply as a  supply point for the country immediately  surrounding it.  While it is not reasonable to suppose  that all the rich country known as west  Kootenay has no hopes for the future, that  the Slocan with its untold millions is a  deal better, yet it is comforting to know  that even in such an event Nelson can yet  feel assured of a bright and successful future. If all other hopes should fail she  can " Crusoe like" draw from her own surroundings the material from which to shape  the foundations of a lasting prosperity.  Those who have cast their lot in with  the future of Nelson have good cause to  congratulate themselves on their sound  judgment when they contrast the possibilities of their future with this town and  the other sections of this region on both  sides of the line.  ' THE SILVER AGITATION._  ��������� The messages of Urover Cleveland  the present financial situation in the  United States has probably been more  thoroughly discussed than any state paper issued since the emancipation .proclamation. The friends and. foes of silver  alike seem willing to acknowledge the  force and directness of the manner in  which a most difficult matter is handled.  Though there is much in the message  that will be sharply, questioned by the  western friends of silver,there can be no  doubt but that there is also much that is  worthy of calm and careful consideration.  One fact that must not be overlooked  is that President Cleveland is open and  above-board in his methods, and his expressed opinion can be taken as final.  There will be no reserved blow concealed under the silky platitudes of the professional politician.  The real struggle will be in the house,  and between the house, and senate. In  the house there has been as yet nothing  that would furnish material for any valuable or reliable prediction as to the temper of the members. So far though the  ar.angement of the methods of proceed-  ure on the debates is considered favorable to the silver cause. It is also con-  ceeded that those who have the free  coinage cause in hand have taken the  strongest position possible under the  circumstances.  In the senate the feeling is more  pronounced.    There is little douba but that  the majority in this body are in favor of  friendly legislation for silyer.    Several  of the most eloquent and influential   of  the senators have already placed  themselves on record in  no  uucertain  way,  and the opinion has been freely expressed by the Eastern press that no positive  rinti-silver legislation will   receive   the  sanction of the senate.  ���������   The whole matter of the preliminary  skirmishing will  probably turn on  the  question of the unconditional repeal of  the Sherman purchase law.   The friends  of silver fear, and justly,  that if  they  "permit   an   unconditional   repeal   their  chances of successfully passing a subsequent and  satisfactory substitute  will  be small.  They will therefore endeavor to introduce a bill that will cover both a repeal  of the present law and a substitute.  As to the nature of this substitute it  is difficult to judge at present. It will  probably bo in the nature of a compromise, as the forces are too evenly divided  to hope, for the granting of more than  part of what the silver men would like  to have.  In this compromise the question of a  value ratio will be the leading one. The  war cry of the west has been "16 to 1"  but if free coinage is finally secured it  will be at some lower ratio than that.  Judging by the present outlook 18 to 1  or 19 to 1 is about the best that can be  hoped for.  This would bring silver up to about.90c  other conditions remaining the same as  before the recent drop. Allowing that  the stimulus of this price would result  in increased production the fixed ratio  would maintain that value no matter  how fictitious it might be as compared  with the actual value given by supply  and demand.  As to the ores  IN A  NEW FORM.  "While the newspapers in surrounding  towns are numbered among the things  that were, or are sending out such fitful  gleams of light as to indicate the failing  fires of despair, the Mineb, firm in the  belief that the future of Nelson is sufficiently bright to warrant it, appears this  week in a new dress and and an enlarged  form. A fully equipped power press has  taken the place of the old time Gordon  upon which " ye pressman,,'' has been wont  to register his weekly kick.  Every effort will be made to maintain  the Mineb in its recognized position, as  the authority, mining and general, pertaining to this section.  It is believed that this effort on the part  of the management will meet the approval  of both the business men of the town, and  the public generally, as a better medium  for both advertising and news is thus furnished.  The present number has a special interest in as much as it is the first sheet published on a steam press in the Kootenay  District.

Manager  of this section there  need be but little fear of an adverse protective, clause in the legislation. The  producers of silver are not doing the law  making just now. The smelter men are  really far more powerful, and they and  the railroad men will scarcely allow the  passage of any measure calculated to  cut off a constant source of revenue like  the handling of the production of our  mines.  To sum the situation up in a few words  the friends of silver have cause to feel  hopeful. The tone of congress is favorable, and a satisfactory outcome may be  looked for even though all that is asked  may not be granted.  It is not to be believed that steps will  be taken which will practically kill a  vast section of the United States, and  while one silver mine can run in that  country, the rich deposits in this section  can successfully compete with it.  The question with this country is not  so much the price of silver as transportation, and we can abide the decision on  silver with a feeling of greater security  than any of the western state8 to-d^y.    I eer Press.  BIMETALLISM.  Just at the present time the word " bimetallism" is being used to an.extent perhaps never known before in the history of  finance. It is being used with an abandon  and freedom of interpretation that would  fill a foreigner with fresh admiration at  the elasticity of the English language.  At one moment we are told that " bimetallism is doomed" in another that the  safety of the financial world depends upon  its recognition, all of which leads to a consideration of the word as a word and some  of the many shades of meaning which have  been given to it.  Bimetallism, in most economic discussions, means the free use on equal terms of  gold and silver as money at a ratio of coinage fixed by law.   It would apply to any  other metals  as  well, but it is strictly  limited to these.   In this meaning, which  is a logical and definite one, bimetallism is  a theory whose feasibility and desirability  are stoutly defended by eminent authorities.   In this meaning the United States  has stood firmly by bimetallism, and stands  there yet; for we have been and are not  only willing but desirous to join the other  nations af the  world in  any   agreement  that will accomplish the fixing of a relation between gold and silver according to  which they may be minted on equal terms.  But in   this sense, we must remember  also, bimetallism does not exist in any one  of the great commercial nations, the United  States included.   And that kind of bimetallism can be ''doomed" only as a possibility, since it is found nowhere as a fact.  It is probable, however, that not one  person in a hundred uses the word with  this fixed application, or has any clearer  understanding of it than as applying to  some sort of concurrent use of gold and  silver as money. Thus limited circulation  and mintage of iilver, at a given ratio,  would be held to make a currency bimetallic; and in this sense every one of tne principal nations has adopted bimetallism,  since   all include silver  coins   in   their  money of use. In this sense the United  States is strongly bimetallic, and would  continue to be so if the Sherman law were  repealed to-morrow.  The currency of this country contains  of silver or its representatives, silver certificates or treasury notes issued against  silver bullion, more than $530,000,000.  This is probaby equal to the whole amount  of gold in the United States, and such a  constitution makes a currency mathematically if not economically bimetallic. If  the Sherman law were repealed, and it  were sure that no other silver would be  issued, this would continue to circulate  without depreciation ; and this is a very  real and sensible bimetallism.  The silver cranks, for their part, have  sedulously limited the employment of the  word to the free coinage of silver and gold  at a ratio of 15i to 1. It is needless to add  that they have no possible warrant for  this. But it will tend to the absence of  much confusion and the promotion of clear  thinking if all who read and especially  those who write shall make the word " bimetallism " significant of something more  than a vague scheme of currency in which  gold and silver both appear, but on undecided and indefinite terms.���������St Paul Pion-  MEDICAL.

rout    the   railroad'   hospital   and   its
(ethods of carrying on   business.    The
��� Ik was occasioned in the first place by
/ ie result of an accident.
J. Win. Grant had been engaged in chop-
"A'lXg ties for one of t he contractors.   He
|.  been   paid  for-   his work   and  was
|dng to another locality for the pur-
p of getting out irror-e ties.    Another
,��g was moving at the same time and
Int was offered the chance to  have
���'tools and  baggage  transported in a
i;   provided  he  would   engineer  the
ile attached to the same,
rant's story runs to the effect that
Si bargain was struck and he and the
I* mule departed gaily. On the way
A'ever the mule made a slip, while en-
jed in meditation, and the, cart was
'rtui-ned. Grant, and the contents of
?s cart became slightly mixed up, and
|ien he emerged from the pile of axes,
|id scrapers, etc., he found two or three
��s the worse for wear.
|Vs Grant had just paid his hospital
K he applied to that institution for re-
|ii-s, Dr. Titus patched him up offend, told him his ribs were not broken
|t dislocated from the socket. He
. irther informed him so Grant says,
that in view of the fact that he was not
in the employ of the company while in
transit, he could not be received at the
hospital. Grant managed in some way
to get to town and Dr. La Bau attended to his injuries. ��� A
Grant is. now.as easy as could be expected but very indignant over his treatment,    He states that lie will take legal
'vdvice and if possible recover damages
:oni the company.
jOn the other hand Dr. Titus claims
that the '���man was" not entitled to treatment but that, he was attended to just
' he same and did riot apply for- 'further
-real men I for an injury which was slight
in the first place. .
The doctor- objects to the charge of being-brutal, and claims that he is especially careful of t he patients unde his eya.
A general invitation is extended to the
public to visit 1 he railroad hospital and
see for themselves.
r This is the usual talk arid goes for-
a what it is worth, but the facA remains
fthat men who pay for the care in such
an institution have a right to ask for
somejietur-n for money invested in the
monthly'dues. They may be getting it
and they niay not, but when the patients that should be.in that institution
applyji'o:-permission to become public
charges in the city hospitals, we all have
a right to ask questions as to the wherefore, c

WnrntT. chairman, and Geor-gi- F.  Wasliburn, secretary.    The appeal  say.-  Sn part:  Unconditional repeal of the present  silver law will at once stop all im-re^e  in currency, place the country on a single gold standard, and at one strnke  change all debts to gold debts, with the  ���������certainty that, gold will thereafter oon-  TJ?n������e to increase in value at an accilei-  ���������ateo! rate.  The appeal then comments on the  present financial disturbance and asks:  "Can this condotion be improved by  shutting off the money supply and still  fnrtber rest) icting the  volume of cur-  While we cannot-secure an, absolutely  honest dollar-, we should .approach it as  nearly as possible, and a bimetallic  standard ought to be airljiptedi'because  with bimetallism the money unit Hue  tnates less than under the single standard.  "We believe t'hat restoration of the  ttirhtof free coinage, as it existed previous to 1873, would raise the price of  vilver bullion to 129 cents per ounce  ���������.hroughout the world and render unnec-  <--;snt-y any change in t he present ratio.

The trouble now is  i bat the deposit ots have withdrawn  iheir money from fear- of the banks and  a repeal of "the Sherman law will not increase the solvency of the banks."  J  jnency?" It is a time when more money  amd not less is needed. There is work,  "but no monev to pay for it.  The appeal then calls upon the. people  (everywhere to turn aside party diifervn-  rces and to .assemble, "as our fathers did  of old," and pass resolnt ions calling upon  their representatives and senators in  congress to resist repeal of the present  silver law, unless coupled'with a provision restoring free coinage of gold and  silver as it existed under- the law prior-  to passing "t5ie fraudulent act of 1S73."  The appeal recommends reading the  ���������Chicago silver convention platform at  sill assent blages, the writing of let t r-s to  representatives and senators', and in  feet' make :i vigorous campaign against  appeal.

Bryan of Nebraska  addressed the house in favor of free  coinage. The effort is considered tin-  Hio.-it brilliant of the campaign up to  date. Some of the leading points are as  follows.  The effects of our action may be far-  reaching. If the United States, ihe  great est .silver producing country, abandons silver, it will in all probabiliny lead  in the annihilation of silver as a standard money throughout the world. The  only law making any provision, for- the  increased use'of silver money is the  Sherman law. The president recom-  ancnded its unconditional repeal. Democratic members are under- no obligation  to adopt his recommendation, s nee  they are responsible to their constituents only, and are in duty bound to protect their rights and regard  their-  inter  ne Thai KrKHajct"  In (he benuliTuT, chaste and breezy  language for- which the free American  press is so justly celebrated, the western  papers are jni-t, now remarking that the  president's message is hardly satisfactory. In this connection the Denver  Mining Journal man draws a deep  breath and remarks:  "D���������n Cleveland; D���������n the message!  The president is the biggest, liar in the  United States.  Cleveland is a traitor to  this  country  ��������� uid should   he impeached,     tried,   and  hanged.  The Western Democrat more mildly  but quite as significantly exclaims.
