Respecting the silver question, the  lecturer held, to the theory that the  trouble was due to limitations on its  distribution, rather than to overproduction. He set up bimetallism as the solution of the silver question, but did. not  hold out any hope that such a system  would he established until an international conference had decided in its  favor.

Mr.   Suydam had a grip 'full  of ore from a group of properties near Bear  Lake and in the neighbourhood of Colonel  Russel'sjrieli strike made last year.     It uppers that the Colonel having followed  up  the apperantly",blankefc vein which  he  discovered has now got it clipping into the hill  with   every   appearence of  a strong   vein  Among other claims located in   the  neighborhood is the Miner Boy of which the prin- ;  cipal owner is the redoubtable Micky Hayes  of old time Nelson fame.     Development  work this year has disclosed a vein  of the  same quality of dry silver ore as the Colonel's. Micky is now sacking ore  that   will  average  1000   oz. to the ton.   Not so bad  for an old Kootenay stiff    This is a group  of properties that can .ship ore with  silver  at 25 cents an ounce.  The far- famed Kootenay country has  become noted the world over for its  rich properties. Vast ledges of silver-  lead and copper- silver bearing ores  abound to such an extent that the ��������� announcement, of a new discovery along  that line fails to awaken anything further than a passing interest.  Occasionally, however, a find is made  that causes even the most stolid of Nelson's experts to open their eyes, and  when sent abroad by various veracious  correspondedts, makes the world woq:  der anew.   ......  One of these was recently made near  Nelson. Soma two miles below town on  the'line of the C. & K. railroad there has  been located one of the most unique  finds noted in this section. It is a gold  leaf ledge of a richness fairly dazzling  to the naked eye. An excellent country  rock abounds, and the mineralized formation is a decomposed quartz vein  rich in oxides from the original bisulphides. In the honeycombs formed by the  washing away of the oxides the leaf  shows up in all its brilliancy as if just  from the hands of the gold beater.  The lucky locators of the bonanza  have erected a fence around the discovery point, to keep out the ���������many visitors who insist on carrying off rich  specimens. A well posted gentleman  brought a piece of the rock into the  Miner office, and all hands pronounced  it a very neat thing.  I Ik  Hoard of Trade Mill .See if the S. A  V. S.

Jt  question   which   the   members   of   the  South Kootenay Board of Trade sought  to dispose of yesterday afternoon.  For months the construction work on  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railroad  has been going on, and everyone has  been waiting for pay-day.  The tardiness of the payments necessitated the discounting of time checks  by those who were in need of ready  money, at the business houses in Nelson.  lu the fulness of time the paymaster  arrived arid some of the men received  their money, and some did not, but the  strange part of the paymaster's action  was the ordering of all time checks,  taken in exchange by merchants, or  held by other than those wrlio worked  on the road, to be presented at Say ward  for payment.  The effect of this move will be that,  merchants will not be inclined to deal  in time checks at all, and Nelson will  thus be deprived of any trade with those  employed on the road.  B. E. Lemon occupied the chair at.  the Board of Trade, meeting yesterday.  After the subject had been thoroughly  ventilated, it was considered advisable'  to bring the matter.into the courts, and  make a test case of the time checks,  which at present aeei'u LOiead "payabie  God knows when, God knows where."  The Board appointed a committee  conposed of R.. LC. Lemon, president;  D. B. Bogle and'Bobt. A. Kenwick, to  look into the matter, and secure a good  case to put inro the courts, and report.  If the committee is successful in securing a good case,the chances are that  time checks on the N. A: F. S. wili be  paid where they are earned, and .when  due.

The story of fresh complications   between   France and  Siam   cabled  exclusively to the Associated Press yesterday  was fully confirmed to-day by the utterances of the French press.    There is no  doubt that France is fretting under the  scoring comments of foreign newspapers  upon her alleged backdown before England's firm attitude,    There is still  less  doubt that the  French  government   is  determined   that, the foreign press shall  not easily have  another such chance   to  hold up the   republic to ridicule.    Much  irritation is felt against England   from  the fact that she was supporting, if not  advising Sin.m   in the dilatory attitude  the latter country assumed' in the treatment of concessions made to France.   In  consequence the French newspapers are  spurring the government to make a determined effort to teach England not to  interfere   with   the  colonial   policies   of  France.     Not   only   has   Karl   Dutt'erin  postponed    his   proposed    vacation    to  Switzerland,   but  it  is  added  that dispatches  of the most important   nature  were exchanged yesterday between the'  British  foreign   office  and   the   British  embassy at Paris.

Although it was generally understood  that the House of Lords would reject  the Home Rule bill on Friday evening  of last week, the house did not fill up  until after the dinner hour, popular  interest centeri ng in the speech of the  Ma-rep lis of Salisbury, who was not expected to rise until midnight.  Conspicuously occupying a portion of  the area of the house were twenty-two  bishops attired in their robes, with lawn  sleeves. The Archibishop of Canterbury,  the Bishop of London, the Bishop of  Oxford, and every other'notable church  dignitary was present. Members of the  House of Commons crowded the recesses and standing room around the  throne.  The debate in. the house reached the  acme of dullness in Earl Morley's maundering? against the bill.

This policy would be  madness in dealing with ordinary men,  and more than madness iir dealing with  a race that for centuries had hated  England.  As long as England was true, to herself, she would never allow this atrocious dismemberment, this treachery,  this revolution. Their lordships would  be untrue to the duly which devolved  upon them from a splendid ancestry,  and untrue to the highest traditions if  they failed to reject the bill."  as the house generally  Lord Salisbury seizing a chance during  a momentary.pause, rose at10.30 o'clock  amid rapturous cheers and began his  speech.  Throughout  the debate the one question constantly present in his mind was :  Why'liad-the  Government introduced  such a Bill? On this point the house had  received no sufficient enlightment. Some  peers, who  had  defended the  bill,, had  made able speeches without much reference to the real nature of the' bill.    The  Lord Chancellor had virtually told them  that he did not quite   believe   with the  government on one subject, thati'n deal-f  iv>g with the retention of the Irish members at Westminster, which was an outrage   on   England   so enormous and so  grotesque  that it was surprising that it  had ever found a place in the proposal  eminating  from   a  responsible  government.  The Lord Chancellor had declared  that he was not inclined to associate  himself with so desperate a clause, but  would prepare some other arrangement.  Then in dealing with the abandonment of the landlords, the Lord. Chancellor had admitted, that their fate  would be terrible, but said that they had  brought it on themselves. Finally the  Lord Chancellor had finished his account  of his own intellectual position by protesting'with a vigor thoroughly sincere,  against anybody desiring to know the  real opinion of any cabinet 'member  upon a cabinet bill.  The Secretary of Foreign Affairs,  Lord Rosebery, also had avoided the  burning subjects underlying the government's policy. The problem which-the  Foreign Secretary seemed to have set  himself to solve was in an hour's speech  to avoid giving pledges that might be  inconvenient in the future; and he had  solved the problem.; with absolute success.  Much had been said of the benefits of  autonomous government, but there had  not been for a century a statesman bold  enough to propose that an   autonomous  colony should send SO  members   to   the  Imperial   parliament,    representing   no  interest in   England   and   bound   by  no  responsibility with respect to the   possible  application of laws that parliament  passed. The absurdity of such a position  was enough to send  a   man   to Bedlam.  How could they get rid of  Irish  questions   in   the  presence   of   SO   members  seeking to make themselves marketable  wares  in   negotiations   with   the ministers?    Would these   men sent by Archbishop Walsh, be quiet  on   questions of  religion and education ?     What appeared to shine visably through all the arguments was a policy of  despair, the  Liberals   having  said:    "You   have failed,  we do not know how to succeed, but we  will   try   something   that   nobody   has  tried before."    What moral or political  right had any government to embark on  such an experimental policy in   Ireland,  divided to her base  by  party  conflicts,  which during seven centuries of English  rule had increased rather than diminish-  that   he   was   no enthusiast   for Home  .      ...... .    ^     A        .  Rule.    He  supported   it as the   best of  three courses  open.    To   adopt  Home  Rule, continue  the policy of rcoecion, or  to   disfranchise   Ireland. ;    If   coercion  were to be continue'cl the future of Ireland would be. a' deplorable one.    Secret  societies  would  again be   formed,  and  the reign of assination would be renewed.   Coercion was a valuable instrument  but' it demanded   continuity  which   it  never  could  obtain.    The  disfranchisement   of    Ireland   was   an   impossible  course.    Home  Rule therefore was  the  alternative.    In concluding  Lord Rosebery said that the present bill  was undoubtedly an experiment, 'but' most legislation was experimental, and Irish legislation   was   necessarily so.    It  was  a  large and generous experiment.    It was  not a leap in the dark, hut a leap in the  light.    It was a leap  toward the reconciliation of two nations too long divided.  The House divided at midnight and  the result was the rejection of the  motion by a vote of 419 to 41.  As might have been expected the press  comments on the. action of the House of  Lords were strong and varied.  The Daily News says:���������Nothing is  more favorable to the success of a political or social reform, than a, large hostile majority in the House of L'.irds. If  thecTories had had more sense, they  would have made the majority smaller  and we should have fared worse.  The Daily Chronicle says :���������Our reply  is extremely simple. The abolition of  the House of Lords now becomes a  plank of the Radical platform, and the  clauses of the Home Rule bill providing  for a second chamber in Ireland must  be modified. Down with the House of  Lords.,  The Standard says :���������When a government tamely submits to such a rebuff,  the public will draw the conclusion that  it. is afraid to face the country.  The Times believes that the decision  of the House of Lords will be sustained  by an overwhelming majority of the  English people.  cision as to his course after the rejection  .of the bill by the house' of lords.' The  royal idea is that Gladotone should appeal to the country, and the determination which is understood to be expressed  by Gladstone in his,special dispatch���������to  hold on indefinitely���������will not. suit,.Her  Majesty at all. It is surmised that Gladstone intimated in the dispatch carried  to Balmoral,the readiness of the cabinet  to submit to the Queen's prerogative to  dismiss her present ministers. This intimation would'mean lit tie, however, as  he knows' he can' rely on the Queen's  discretion to take no step involving the  crown in the popular outcry against the  "house of lords.  A large and '.influential,-party of the  ultra-Tory party expect such diiect intervention from the Queen; but their expectations will hardly be realized.' On  the other hand, the Queen's opinion as  to.the proper course for Gladstone to  take will weigh with him undoubtedly  in hastening his appeal to the country.  *!EMbW?i ttEt.fcNT 'APZ'IAVATIOS.

The home rule situation grows more  interesting now that the government  may be forced to appeal to the country.  Late London advices state that Sir Hen  ry Ponsonby, the Queen's private secretary, passed one night at Blackcrag castle, where Mr. Gladstone is taking a  holiday with Mrs. Gladstone and a party  of friends. The next morning he and  the prime minister had a long interview  and before noon Sir Henry left with a  special dispatch from Gladstone to the  Queen concerning the government's attitude toward the defeat of the home  rule, bill in the house of lords. Sir Henry  was conveyed in all haste from Black-  crag castle to the railway station at  Coupar Angus, where an express train  carried him to Balmoral.  The Queen is known to  have awaited  "Nearly all the Cceur d' Alene mines  will be working on their full capacity  within a few weeks, and we will have a  payroll of over $300,000 a month, over  two-thirds of which will be expended in  Spokane." This statement was made by  a mine owner to a Spokane newspaper  man.  The reason given for this was that  lead has ad vanced to $6 a ton.  "Yes I mean what I say," this man is  reported to have said. " I have a tele-  grain in my pocket to that effect, and I  believe it is true. The mine-owners are  all contemplating opening the mines  in the near future, but with an advance  in lead to over four cents the> will be  started in full blast at the earliest possible moment. Our mines''in the Cceur d'  Alene country are-lead-silver mines, not  silver-lead mines. This will mean from  $200,000 to S300.000 for- Spokane every  month. I see no reason why the report  should not be true, for when the price  of silver went down the production of  lead was practically shut off.  You know we furnish a large percentage of the lead produced in the United  States and it could not take long to run  the supply short. The mine owners  have beenexpecting something like this  for several weeks, but I will acknowledge that the big jump was a surprise  to me."  The above is a sample of the reliable  mining news which the Spokane newspapers swallow and then retail to their  readers.  NOT8GE.  OTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT A. S.

It would be interesting at the present  time it it were possible to secure Lhe real  inside truck of the immense combine  against silver-. That many of those who  are working' against the white metal  are not sincere is well known. That is,  they arc really of the opinion that silver  will always be able to secure recognition  its a, money metal. .But having for the  time being the control of the gold supply, they propose to increase its purchasing power to as great a degree as  possible. This is the- spirit of the majority of financial speculations, and it  as unreasonable for the'friends of silver'  to expect anything else.  That.even (he goldbugs themselves  .have no hope that they will ultimately  ���������down silver, is almost certain. Tire  chances are that the majority of them,  if compelled to sincerely slate their opinion as to t he final solution of the problem. woe.Id agree with, the following  from the Spokane Keview:  "A gentlei'iian connected with a prominent bankers'publication...in the east,  has written a pointed letter to a Denver-  banker discussing- the silver issue. Following is a part of Lhe letter.  "Personally I am -desirous' of seeing  the Sherman law repealed, to prove to  some of our eastern ' calamity howlers'  that it is not the cause of our financial  ills. On the other hand it will notprove  as disastrous to the silver producing  states of some of our western friends  are inclined'to think. It may, temporarily, limit production, and work some  few hardships, but it will be only temporary.' No sooner will a slight contraction in the currency; become noticeable,  than an immediate demand will come  for free coinage, and it will come like  ���������one vast, wave, .and it will not be at an  increased ratio.  "The"'most ardent advocate of the. yellow metal, has in congress freely admitted in his speech befora the house of  representatives a few days since that  the world's supply of gold was entirely  too smail to be used as a basis alone.  This is practically the admission made  by Congressman Ray nor of Maryland,  only a few days ago.  "In my opinion the silver men can  well afford to give the anti-silverites all  the rope and allow them to repeal the  Sherman law unconditionally. The reaction will come in a very short time,  and silver will have its day, and it is not  far off. Bimetallism for this and all  civilized nations, is as certain as the  sun that shines."  Whoever wrote that letter certainly  had a keen insight into the future of the  This means more than would at first  appear. It means.that despite the condition of the metal market, between 20  and 30.tons of ore are being shipped  daily^from the Slocan country.  In addition to this it is known that a  number of the leading properties are  taking out ore and storing it until such  time as the railroad now being built into that section will enable them to ship  cheaper- than , by wagon.' In all there  will be between two and three hundred  men at work in, the Slocan mines this  fall, and the greater number of them  will remain during the winter.  In fact now that the building of the  Nnkusp & Slocan railroad through to  Three Forks before winter is an assured  thing, it is probable that the present  working force in the Slocan may be materially increased for the winter. The  upward tendency of lead will no doubt  stimulate this section to a great extent.  A CHANGE OF POLICY.  The world generally has been rather  sickened with the "bridle deep in blood"  style of literature to be found in most of  the. western newspapes since ,the silver  agitation first took definite form.  When this was at its highest, the  Miner predicted that it was a sentiment  bound to be short lived. That is, that  the thinking portion of those communities would soon come to realize that the  more sensible course to pursue would be  to take up and utilize the many  other  resources of those great western  states  instead of raising the foolish and useless  to adhere together, then in place of the  pulverizers, two roasters are attached  which ��������� thoroughly dry the dirt as it  passes through them. " Everything  works automatically, ..from the raising  of the bucket from the shaft to the  motions of the screens and agitators.  The capacity of the machine is estimated at fifty tons per day, and it can  be run for a week without a cleanup, at  the end of which time the concentrates  are such that a small amount of water  is all that is necessary to pan them.���������  Denver Mining Journal.

The  Denver Mining Journal one of the new  but very influential mining papers of  Colorado, has already adopted a new  style and many others are following  suit. The following " leader" from the  Journal has the right ring as showing  that the " my way or nothing" policy is  being abandoned.  One of the most healthful signs of the  growth of intelligence and conservative  mining, is to be observed in the general  rehabilitation of abandoned gold mines,  which were very productive in the past.  Improved machinery, cheap transportation, and the ' marvelous advance in  metallurgical adaptations have enabled  these mines, to be again worked and rendered their ores desirable to the smelters. Far-seeing men.are investigating  these old districts and securing at nominal prices, these idle 'mines and converting them into veritable bonanzas. A man  can put his money iuto gold mining with  assurance that whatever the legislation  may be, there will always be a demand  for gold, as there are-thousands of millions of dollar's of mortgages and debts  in which is written -'Principal and interest payable in gold."

There are twenty-eight of these last-  named screens, and they oscillate forward, backward, upward, downward,  each movement being accompanied by a  positive jar.

"Why cannot a man go on living for  an indefinite ��������� period, much  longer than  the present one?"   Nine out of ten  people who have arrived at years of  maturity,   in  comfortable circumstances and  good health, have asked that question.  The scientific world has puzzled over its  physical aspect, and the religious  world  has offered many solutions of its moral  side, all hi ore or less unsatisfactory���������to  those who die. , That question has  been  the parent of some of the most valuable  additions to the sum  of human knowledge.    The alchemists  of old pondered  over it   as   they   eyed   astonished   the  chemical reaction in simmering crucible  or bubbling flask.    Asked it again  and  again as they turned the'musty  parchments   of    those   who   had    lived   and  wondered and died before, them, leaving  only the unintelligable record of a hazy  guess.    Potent fluids  brewed those old  men sometimes.    Fluids  that  rau=riQt-  through the  brain,  and  quickened  the  slow pulse of age, until it  was  no  wonder that they felt like exclaiming,    ''Eureka!    The Elixir!    It  is not on   record,  but   it is    quite   probable   that   rminy  a large antique head resulted,  and the  alchemist awake to murmur, "0 what a  difference in the morning."  against fearful odds.    Groyer Cleveland  the other man, is also respected in many  ways even by those who hate him.    Of  a strong personality, firm in his pursuit  of what appears right in   the   eyes   of  Cleveland, it is not. strange that  he  has  made   enemies  even   more   enthusiastic  than his  friends.    This  enmity   is just  now'finding expression in   popular acts  that savor very much of what is  often  called boy's play.    Such .paragraph's  as  the following   appeal-  in the  press dispatches from time to time: Tom's   river'  N. J.,:���������The reward offered for information that would lead to   the  identity   of  the persons who hanged President Cleveland   in  effigy  docs not   seem  to have  frightened   the  perpetrators  of  the insult.    The town awoke the  next 'morning to find hanging from the flagpole at  the school house grounds another effigy.  The grand jury is  now  in" session,  and  this  matter will probably  be   touched  upon in its indictments. '.���������   r  f<V  And yet from these researches after-  che elixir of life came modern chemistry, which has given to the world secrets of nature more wonderful in many  ways than even a successful outcome of  the old secret could have been.  The pages of history arc filled with incidents that serve to 'illustrate  the  immense balance of power  ouen  wrapped  up in one  human  life.    A  balance  due  that grim creditor Death.   -Loaned for a  few years at mighty tiiury, nut collected  ultimately to the utmost farthing,   and  often at the most inopportune time.    Of  all public men of modei n tones,  no  one  has served to better illustrate this   than  Gladstone.    Time  and time   again   has  ��������� "Fate dashed from his lips the sweet cup  of ultimate success.    The "edifice   which  his ambition  has   buildetl   through   the  years, has come tumbling ii.nvu, only to  be rebuilt by patient toil, while   ever at  his elbow stands that inexorable  credit-  ordemanding settlement.    Pushed back  by the force of a mighty   will,   oniy to  come again more  urgently pressing  his  claim.    His long  and hi tier  home  rule  fight has ended success/ally in the house  of commons only   to   meet, with  defeat  in the house of lords.    This may   be re-  gaided as final so  far us  Gladstone  is  concerned, for it  is   beyond   belief  that.  at his time of life he can  again   take  up  the weary fight and push it to a successful issue.    Long   overdue,   his account/  must soon be settled.    In  the   game  of  politics Death .oft en plays the trump.  For some   time   past   the   world   has  watched the progress of the  home  rule  fight  with great interest.    The expressions of the press of places not directly  interested in the fight have   been,  as  a  rule favorable toward  the ^granting of  Gladstone's demands.     This .has found  expression  in  the general    declaration  that the time has passed when any, people should desire to govern   themselves,  and not be permitted to do so.    Though  the question is far from  solution as regards Ireland, it bicls fair to  be raised  in other parts of the world, and perhaps  with quite as good reason.    The lack of  a community of interests urged  by  the  friends of home rule, would apply   with  equal force to   the western  portion of  the   United  States.    Home   Rule   may  yet be demanded by that vast area  of  country lying  west of the  Mississippi  river.     Will    those   American    papers  which   now   so   loudly   urge   Ireland's  claim, be willing to use the  same  arguments and, draw  the same  conclusions  in this case?

NELSON, U.C  quired knighthood, among other  says:    "In time,   possibly,   his   brilliant  achievements will  be   made  known    to  Canadians, and especially to the   Victoria sealers whose business has been ruined as a result of the distinguished services of the young knight and his colleag-  " ues."    in a similar  frame  of  mind   the  Colonist remarks:  "The proposal of  the  B. C.   sealers to sell out their schooners  to the Home Government, has been sufficiently developed for a committee to   be  formed to draft the necessary   memorial."

C.   M.   G. for valuable  services rendered.    What bosh!"  The world generally is just now divided over the actions politically of two  men.

Wilkinson, the "World's man on  the wing" paid Nelson one of his flying  visits during the week, and dropped in  to say "hello!" to the Miner. J. T. is a  great rustler.
