Carl Klcinsmidlh left for the Salmon  "River on Tuesday to start yvork on his  placer claims. \  We understand that yvork yvill shortly be  recommenced on the Poor Man.  Mr. C.Redpaith states according to the  Inland Sentinel that the company proposes to erect a plant to treat theore at  the Savona Cinnabar mine. '  Mr. John Hepburn is said to have purchased the other partners' interest in  the Victoriii Mining company's claim on  the Qnesnelle River. He expects to get  the yvater on this season.  o  Three prospectors from California yvith  eight pack horses have gone up the North  Thompson River1. They intend to go as  far as the head of thc Cloaryvatcr.  Rich specimens of native Hake and  yvire silver have been brought into Kamloops l'roin the J-Iofnestake claim by W.  T. Wood, Indian agent, S. H. Jones and  Dr. Edgar.  Byron N. White of the Slocan Star was in  toyvia on Thursday.     He   reports   things  quiet up' at the Star.   The last of the ore of  yvhich about 900 tons yvas shipped during  .the-winter went down last week via Three  j'Fui'Ks.-''The-'coinpauy' is now-waiting for  "' the arrival of a railway, either the Nakiisp-  Slocan or the Kaslo-Sldcan, iu  the meantime fyvelve or fifteen men are kept at development yvork. ,,  It is reported in a "Victoria paper that  thc trial made at Yale this yveek by Bell &,  ���������McCastlo's gold dredger fully realized the  highest expectations of the prospectors.  Working in tyvelve feet of yvater gold gravel  was pumped up from the bed of the river  yvhich yielded 19^ ounces oi* gold in a  thirty-six hours' run. Stones yvcighing  tyventy-iive and thicty pounds are brought  up by the pump, and the yvhole machinery  works perfectly.  The revised official report of the  Province's coal output for.lS93 gives the  *-figures-as-1^001,070-ton?,���������an-increaseon-  1S93 of no less than 151,929 tons, and the  largest yield on the Provincial record,  yvith the single exception of the year  1891, yvhen the total quantity mined  came to 1,029,097 tons." The North  Thompson mine last year figured in the  total for the first time, yvith' a small experimental output of 250 tons. The home  consumption of 1S93 showed an increase  of nearly 12.000 tons over that of 1S92,  and the total number of hands emplyed  was 2,8-IG, as against 2,802 of the previous  year.  AIiismoi-Ui.  .{From our 01011 correspondents.)  The concentrator at tin* "No. 1" mine  began regular yvork on Tuesday, April  25th. Orr Saturday it yvas. reported as  turning out plenty of rich concentrates,  " the assays on - that day averaging over  750 ounces of silver'to "the ton. It, yvas  also said that the ore bodies at the face  seemed likely to furnish plenty of ore. *  The Black Diamond tunnel penetrated  the second vein of ore last yveek at a distance of about 2S0 feet from the mouth.  On Saturday they had gone in about  seven feet, but not through the vein,  which those running the mine said  looked extremely promising.  A meeting of the inhabitants of Ainsworth was held at Martin's Hall on  Saturday, April 28th, at yvhich a communication, from the government yvas  read announcing that it had been  decided to continue the Record Office at  that place.  The following resolutions were passed:  Resolved, that the people of Ainsyvorth  Mining District desire to express their  . gratitude to the government of British  Columbia for their speedy compliance  with their petition for the continuance  of the Record Office in Ainsyvorth.  Resolved, that they ask from the  government a like attention to the  petition which was sent to the Minister  of Mines about six weeks ago, which  asked for any expenditure upon the  wagon road to the "No. 1" mine sufficient to place it in permanent repair;  to change it so as to avoid certain steep  places, to increase the number and size  of the culverts, and, to yviden certain  narrow and dangerous places. They  also ask for the extension of the Cedar  Creek Road to a point, across that stream  opposite the Highland mine.  Resolved, that they reneyv the petition  yvhich was forwarded seven yveeks ago,  nsking the governnienttofurnish money  to extend and secure the existing wharf,  a portion of yvhich is liable to be carried  ayvay whenever the lake shall rise a few  feet above the usual high yvater. This  event seems quite likely to occur during  the present season.  Resolved, that the government be'  requested to appoint a notary public for  the town and district of Ainsworth, and  to make him also a commissioner of  oaths, If not contrary to the rules of  the Civil Service, they yvould suggest  that the appointment be conferred upon  yvhoe.ver may be the government agent  at this place. t,  Trail Creek.  Fifty-three carloads of ore from the Le  Roi mine treated at Tacoma are said to have  given, *i?54 of gold to the ton. The amount  of silver and copper is not stated. At  present only about a dozen men are employed at the mine, in sinking, and no more  oro"yvill bo shipped uutil the hoisting aud  pumping machinery is erected. This is expected to take from four to five weeks from  date.  Xcw Denver Notes.  Mr. Gillette has a gang of men at work  putting in a new bridge on the yvagon road  at the canyon betyveen here and the Three  Forks and generally improving the road.  It yvill be some time before vehicular  traffic can be resumed as another bridge  has been carried ayvay and debris from the  railroad grade covers the road in many  places.  The Three Forks toyvnsite is now being  cleared and some of the unemployed  brigade are finding a healthy amusement  in actiug as stokers yvithout remuneration.

We are represented in your issue of the  14tlfas saying that there yvas 100 tons oi!  Alpha ore at Four Mile. This should have  been 250.  A surveyor is now locating a yvagon road  from Silverton to the ore house erected by  Mr. McNaught near the Alpha Mine and a  tramyvay yvill shortly be laid from the mine  to the ore house.

Morford a delegate from the Spokane Branch of the American Raihvay  Union, convened a meeting hereon Sunday  evening last, for the purpose of forming a  branch of the Union in Kelson. Apparently  hoyvever he could not make it stick, as  though only ten names yvere required, that  number yvas not available. When a Miner  reporter appeared there was only the. delegate and one other man.  The Kootenai Herald says that it is finally  settled that the Great Northern yvill equip  and operate the Kaslo-Slocan Railway. A  yvharf yvill be built at Bonner's Ferry and  also at Kaslo from which the cars yvill be  run on to the steamers, and these boats  yvill be built strong enough to break their  way through the ice iu the winter.

Bealey is putting up a fine building  on Baker street and we are informed that  all the rooms are already let. T. Kelly has  the contract.  On Tuesday last the boys celebrated  May Day by opening the new recreation  f round   at" the, corner  of Baker ,and  osephine streets with a, game of baseball.  In reply "to a suggestion the Hon.

In another column yve publish the new  time table of the C. &"K. Steam "Navigation  company, and for the convenience of our  readers we print a table showing the time of  closing of all mails leaving Nelson.  The yvires have been doyvn pretty frequently of late. Perhaps this accounts  for what is noyv the fashionable form of  telegraphy in West Kootenay. Instead  of telegraphing "wire reply," as men do  elsewhere. Nelson's citizens put it thus,  "send reply by. freight train "  ���������JHirhatrnioi*^e'"ell:-'i.urr the "'���������yvater "sTTp]jiy'  and the number of willing hands to use it,  the Nelson House yvould have gone up on  Thursday last together yvith the empty  house next door and Bigeknv's store beyond.-. Fire yvas discovered in the roof  about 9.30 a. m., arising probably from a  collection of soot in a stovepipe becoming  ignited. But the enemy yvas quickly discovered. In less than three minutes a hose  reel was on the ground a"nd speedily at  yvork, dozens of buckets yvere brought into  play and passed along by strings of men,  up ladders, and through windoyvs. These  prompt, measures soon subdued the fire.  but yve fear that a great deal of damage has  been done and Mr. Marks is totally uninsured.  We are'glad to notice the attention  -whichNelson-isbeginning-to pay-to -hei-  gardens. Nature has made provision  for one of the prettiest toyvns in the  world here, and it requires very little  imagination to see it noyv, a hollow iu  the mountains above the blue lake, yvith  pretty rising terraces of neatly built  cottages and bungalows overlooking the,  business portion of the toyvn. The additional charm of colour yvhich gardens  "yvould give to Nelson, and the home like  look yvith yvhich they yvould invest the  other-yvise crude surroundings, may be  valued even in dollars and cents. A  pretty garden yvill often sell a poor house,  especially if the would-be purchaser has  a yvife to be. consulted. This is a hint  worth remembering for real estate agents  and men with houses to let.  Frank Britlon has been arrested at  Vancouver for being present at a prize  fight.

It is  I supposed to be some kind of disease in  the animal, and it is largely used for fine  varnishes and also in the manufacture of  perfumery.  The Nicola Valley Raihvay company  expect in a short time to commence the  construction of their road from the main  line of the C. P. R., near- Spence's  Bridge, to the valuable coal lands some  10 miles distant, and thence to Nicola  Lake, about six 'miles further on. The  company, some two years ago, secured  from fifteen to tyventy square miles of  coal lands, and subsequently obtained a  charter for the raihvay. The coal is  bituminous and is of the best quality,  the coke produced from it being equal to  the best Cornellsville, Pa., product.

A meeting of government supporters  was held iu Nelson ou the 1st May at the  Board of Trade room. It yvas intended to  be a small preliminary meeting io start an  organization to be recommended to the  government party in Nelson as a suitable  "means of communicating yvith government  supporters in other localities in the Riding,  "but, as about 70 stahvarts put in an  appearance, and an important communication was received f rom'Kaslo, the meeting  determined unanimously to enlarge the  purpose for which it yvas convened, It  was understood that all the candidates  who have been talked of on the govern-  . ment side placed themselves unreservedly and yvith commendable public  spirit in the hands of the meeting, so far,  of course, as Nelson yvas concerned. The  meeting represented very fairly the population and interests of the town. One or  two "conventioneers" strayed into the fold,  and seemed impressed by the unanimity and  practical character of the meeting. Harold  Selous was appointed chairman, and A. M.  Johnson, secretary. The folloyving resolutions, .yvith the oidinary resolutions for  the appointment of committees yvere adopted  unanimously :  (1.) That, the present government has  been vigorous and progressive in provincial  affairs, and has done {.-well for this Riding  generally in the past. "  '(2.) That for this reason and as representing a powerful, united party, the  government should receive support ia the  coming general election.  (3.) That steps should be taken to secure  an acceptable candidate for this Riding,  who shall support the government.  (4.) That such candidate shall bea capable  resident of the Riding, yvilling, if elected,  to consult his constituents generally on  important matters ; and that his place of  birth or place of local residence in the  Riding is immaterial.  (5.) That G. O. Buchanan, Esq., is a fit and  proper candidate to be recommended to  the electorate, and that this meeting  pledges itself to support him in the coming  election.

Nelson, B.C.  down prepared to address them, as he had  understood that   the   meeting yvas   of a  preliminary nature and that nothing beyond the formation of a committee and the  arrangement of certain details yvould be  ..carried out.   Daring the last tyvo sessions  he had been in Victoria and had seen hoyv  the ci uutry yvas governed.    He had always  found the   members   of   the government  ready to listen to argument and "willing  to deal fairly in any matter put before  them    and    more    likely    to    be    led  astray through lack of  knoyvledge   than  through any prejudice against the district.  The government of Mr. Robson and Mr.  Davie had done a good deal for Koote-  "liayintheyvay-oHiberal-.expenditure-upon-  roads, trailsi and wharves,'and they had  built the Court House, Schoolroom and  bridges in Nelson, and as a rule requests  made from this district  yvith   regard to  amendments in the law had  been complied with. -  :    In some respects the district had. perhaps  suffered through the attitude of its 'member,: who had tried to  pursue a middle  course and   had   not    attached   himself  firmly to either party, and who at the out-  * set   of    his    career    had  made   himself  obnoxious by undue aggressiveness.  Mr. Kelly had also lived at the other  end of the district and the interests of the  two ends did not always coincide.  This state of affairs had been happily  terminated by the division of the district:  The Riding yvas noyv compact yvith unity  of interests, and the duties devolving upon  the neyv member would on that account be  less onerous than they' had been in the  past. .    ���������        "  . In the neyv legislature there yvill be but  two parties.   <  '- There are those yvho have corifideuce in  .the general good faith and good intentions  of the government, yvho are yvilling that  they should retain their offices,  and are  willing to respect their confidences and to  . agree that they will not yvithout due cause  ,   and due notice seek to embarass" or defeat  them.   And there are those yvho declare  themselves   the enemies- of the administration and who seek by fair means or by  foul   to   cause   their   downfall.    At   the  - present time the independent party does  ;not exist, having coalesced yvith the straight.  opposition.  The   members   that   are   classed   with  ^the government are admitted to the caucus  meetings of thai; party "where "they have a  much better opportunity of getting a hearing for any objections they may have to  make than in the House itself. If there is  anything yvroug or suspicious about a  measure, it can be sifted and invpstigated,  . and either killed or amended before it comes  '.- before the House. When onee a measure  has passed this ordeal, it has at its back a  majority pledged! to push, it through, and  opposition, except as a protest, is practically useless.  ��������� There yvere no questions ol fundamental principles at issue between the two  parties.. The questions which came before  the House were chiefly on practical matters  relating to the collection of revenue and  and its judicious expenditure, as well as  proposals to amend the Land Act, the  Mineral Act, the Municipal Act and other  acts, yvith the object of making them more  yvorkable.  The House was iu fact little more than  a municipal council and it is almost as unreasonable to send members to sit in the  opposition as it is to elect members to a  toyvn council to oppose the mayor.  There is no reason to doubt, now, that  the government of Mr. Davie yvill be sustained. The late leaders of the opposition  appear to be disheartened aud discredited.  They have announced no platform and no  new men appear to be coming forward yvith  the necessary qualifications of leadership.  The leading questions upon which the  government may be attacked, are questions  upon yvhich the opposition itself yvas  divided, or upon "-yvhich they took no stand  or to which they offered no amendment,'  such as the Public Buildings, The Nakusp  & Slocan Railway and Redistribution.  Kootenay is a district yvhich.bss a multitude of wants.' It is not so much the questions yvhich are in sight today, much less  those that are in the past that we need to  consider. It is the hundred questions that  yvill crop up during the four years to come  that have to be provided for. He believed  that in order to protect our oyvn interests,  to secure a hearing for our multifarious requests, a member yvas needed -who would  yvork in harmony yvith the government, and  yvho yvould be admitted to the caucus of its  members.  .  ���������An era of- mtffiti&-fSN$g%888brttBr  pected, and he believed that Mr. Da\ie and  his colleagues yvere ambitious to aid in  bringing it about. They needed and deserved advice and assistance and information rather than opposition and obstruction  and if he yvas the man selected for the  honour of bearing the. staudard of those  present at the meeting and others yvho are  in sympathy yvith them throughout the  District, he would discharge the duties of  the position yvith the best of his abilities  according-to these vieyvs.  Mr. Buchanan's remarks yveie yvell re-  ceived.and, after a conference, the meeting  unanimously adopted the folloyving resolution : ,   .

Address  The Miner Printing & Publishing Co.  nelson/ B.C.  In the name of common sense and of  the grand old country yvho has been  such a splendid mother of men, let us  have done yvith this foolish talk of  nationality. The man yvho speaks of  Canadians as North American Chinamen is as much an enemy of his country  as he yvho damns the English for the  follies of a few half fledged " dudes."  sideratlon of those legislators yvho are  noyv asking the people to support them.  We feel confident that a man of Mr.  Davie's energetic business, habits yvill  recognize the injustice from yvhich we  suffer, and take steps to remedy it.  The first records we have are of conveyances sent to Victoria-for registration.  Here are six chosen haphazard:  WANTED A LAND REGISTRY OFFICE  THE C 0 VERNMENT CANDIDA TE.  Although the fight has not actually commenced, the combatants are ready aud the  struggle will begin at once.   At a meeting  of government supporters held on Thursday last in Nelson it yvas unanimously resolved that Mr. G. 0. Buchanau is a lit and  proper person to represent "West Kootej.ay  in the Provincial Parliament, yvhich resolution yve   most   cordially   endorse.   Mr.  Hume the opposition candidate, apparently  has no ideas of his oyvn  aud is quite content to appear as the giant on  the outside  of a dime museum, yvhile his proprietor  yvith the aid of a tiu pipe sings his praises.  But Mr. Buchanan though quite unprepared,, at once rose and after thanking the  meeting for its nomination, in a clear and  business like speech, yvhich yve print elsewhere, set forth the views that influence  him iu seeking election for the district.   It  may be worth yvhile to remind electors that  Mr. Buchanan is a native of Nova Scotia  For eight   years   he   has   resided in this  Province.   For six years he has lived in  Kootenay, where he is noyv yvell known and  universally respected.   Mr. Buchanan yvill  probably before long take   an opportunity  of addressing the electors at various points  in the constituency, yvhen yve shall have a  chance   of analysing   his  political   vieyvs.  For the present it is suilicient to say that  his known character guarantees his honesty  and good faith, that having avoyved himself an ally of tLe government, his loyal  and unflinching support may be relied on  in all measures for the public good, while  we may rest assured that the legitimate requirements   of   West Kootenay   yvill. not'  suffer because they are intrusted to an in-  ���������^telligent-"and��������� energetic��������� representative  ���������   whose vote goes yvith the Executive.  ���������       In alluding to Mr. Buchanan as a gov-  ���������-   eminent supporter, yve take it for granted  that Mr. Davie and his colleagues will be  returned to poyver.   "Without going deeply  into the reasons for this belief, we may say  that there' are absolutely no reasons to anticipate a reversal of public opinion, nor  have any men as yet appeared in the political  arena who may be at all looked ���������upon as  capable of taking their places.  In his speech on Tuesday, Mr. Buchanan  explained to his audience the working of  thecaucus system, and for the benefit of  those of our readers yvho yvere not present,  we may repeat the gist, of his remarks.  -���������When the government has any measure to  pass, it first submits it to a meeting of its  party, and if they approve of it, it can then  take it to the House with a certainty of se-,  curing it's passage. But if a measure which  is not acceptable to������any member, is submitted to a caucus meeting, he has then  and there an opportunity of explaining and  pressing his objections, which he could not  do. in the House without apparently playing  false to his party, and if he is a man of  integrity and moral yveight yvhose support  is yvorth having, the government is much  more likely to acquiesce in his vieyvs, than  if he yvere a mere contumacious and uncertain individual who votes one day on  one side and the next day on the other.  Government by party is not a perfect form  of government, but the caucus removes  many objections.  It is early yet to speculate upon Mr.  Buchanan's chances of success, but he has  received a numerously signed-requisition  from Kaslo, which" to those who can read  between the lines, carries more yveight than  appears on its face: the meeting at Nelson  on Tuesday which was unanimously in his  favour, yvas largely attended ,and consisted  of men of many a race, creed and occupa-  UN-ENGLISH.  ���������  The   local   organ   of  the   opposition  prides itself upon being un-English.   To  be un-English is the first plank of its  political platform.    We   must  do our  contemporary the justice to admit that  he has thoroughly established his right  to so describe himself.   By  "English"  we mean- all   those   yvhite   men,  who,  drayvn originally from the islands and  shores of the North   Sea,   settled and  intermingled in yvhat are known as the  British Isles, and then being: too strong  and too restless to confine their strength  within  narrow limits   spread   out east  and north, south  and yvest,  until they  made the world their oyvn.    As they  yvent the different breeds took to themselves different names, Canadian, American, Australian   and   so forth,  just as  even   at home   they called   themselves  Scotch or Irish,  or English or Welsh,  but the heart ;)f them all," the spirit of  them all,   yvas   yvhat   history yvill call  English.   And it is against this spirit,  not against   the   small   band    of   neyv  comers from   England,   that  our   contemporary offends, it is to this English  spirit yvhich pervades the minds of the  best men in every English speaking land  that he is opposed yvhen he hits a man  who is doyvn.   We,   thank God for it,  have always been a fighting race,  but  yve fight chivalrously, not like assassins.  The rules of the ring are almost as yvell  known as the ten commandments yvhere-  ever our tongue is spoken, and the first  almost is give your adversay fair play  and you shall not hit a man when he is  doyvn.  The man yvho violates this law is un-  English, and yve think yve knoyv enough  of the men of West Kootenay to predict  that the man who hits an enemy yvhen  he is doyvn need look for no sympathy  or encouragement from the rough,  strong " boys " yvho people our mining  camps,  They yvould be as likely to sympathize  yvith a man yvho struck a woman and  God help the man yvho'did that in a  mining camp.  ��������� When our contemporary described  Captain Fitzstubbs as" sick unto death"  it should have done so in such terms as  men iise-yvhen^the-y-speak-of-a dying man-  even if he be an enemy. Instead of that,  that paper gibes at him still as. "gone  from his post yvithout asking leave," and  continues "its campaign against one  yvhom it describes as dying.  There are none, yve believe, in West  Kootenay yvho yvill deny that Captain  Fitzstubbs is a man and an Englishman,  every inch of him. The man yvho  attacked him yvishes not to be thought  English,. no one yvill so far mis-judge  "him, but will any one think him anian ?  Apropos of all the talk of Canadian v.  Englishman it is yvorth yvhile to call  attention to the state of feeling on this  head in the old country. Most men  knoyv that the London " Times" is the  greatest paper in the yvorld. In its  weekly edition is to be found the concentrated essence, of its daily issue. Ail  this year the weekly issues of the Times  have been filled yvith the friendliest and  most favourable articles upon Canada  and the Canadians until in a recent issue  the Times went so far as to devote seven  or nine columns (we forget"which) to  this country.  If Tom Smith,-an Englishman, has  twelve sons, six of whom remain at  home and six carve out careers for  themselves in Canada, America, Australia. Neyv Zealand, South Africa and  India, do you suppose old Tom looks  upon, his boys as anything but Smiths  still? [or if he lives does he regard their  children as anything but -chips of the  old block, chips to be proud of. Not  much, gentlemen! And just so yvith  dear old mother England. Her " boys"  can't help being her boys still, and in  their hearts they knoyv it. There maybe a little-rivalry betyveen the "boy"  who struck out for himself in a neyv  countr/and the "boy" yvho remained  tied to his "mother's apion strings, but it  is only; of a healthy.honourable kind.  The West Kootenay district has realized that it must have a strong man  and a government supporter to press its  claims at the capital. If it does not succeed in returning such a man, its chances  ot" being freed from some of the disadvantages under yvhich it labors are  peculiarly small. Here are a feyv instances of such disadvantages in this  district. With every thing in their favour  property owners and real estate agents  upon the coast, have probably by this  time realized the difficulty of selling  anything.  Here yve have (added to the general  depression) the greatest difficulty in  transacting the most ordinary business.  If a buyer comes along and fancies a  Nelson lot, we have first to send to Kaslo  if yve yvant to see the assessment roll.  This means the loss of a couple of days.  If yve yvant to knoyv anything about the  title of the property, yve have to send to.  Victoria and pay a lawyer to make the  necessary search. This takes on an  average ten days. If it is necessary to  have the title registered before completing the purchase, that operation  yvill take at least two months, long before yvhich time the patience of the  would-be purchaser yvill have been exhausted. Our real estate agents here  live by business and not as others else-  yyhere by fraudulent practices, and it  seems hard that having paid the government $50 per annum for their licenses,  their business should be so hampered.  In spite of it all Nelson still grows; a 25  foot lot Wiis sold here last yveek for over  $900; a,30 foot lot yvas refused at $1,500  last yveek. An athletic ground has just  been completed, neyv houses, are going  up and gardens are being laid out every-  yvhere. But this only proves the vitality  of the toyvn, it is no criterion of the conditions under which it struggles for existence.  As to these tyvo questions of the assessor and the land registry office, let us examine them in detail.  Nelson yvishes no ill to Kaslo, nor does  she want to take anything from Kaslo  yvhich Kaslo requires in her plucky attempt to establish herself as one of the  most important towns in yvhat yvill one  day he a great business centre. But  Kaslo is an incorporated toyvn, and as  such, has her, oyvn.. assessor- (Mr.  Sher-  Sent to Victoria.  April 22nd.  July 16th.  July 5th..  June 13th.  May 30th.  May 6th.  Returned.

These are all modern instances,  and the loss of time and the loss of  money caused by such delays would ruin  the business of any ordinary toyvn.  -OF-  PROVINCIAL VOTERS.

Nelson  on  the other hand  is not an incorporated  toyvn, and therefore has no assessor of  her own, and if the district assessor lives  at  Kaslo,  Nelson citizens must go to  Kaslo to5 see their rolls.    Kaslo yvould  lose nothing by Mr. Denny's transferring  his ollice from Kaslo.to Nelson, whereas  Nelson yvould be a very great gaiiier.

Quotations for bar silver still hang  beloyv 6oc. per ounce, or the English  equivalent of 30d. The position of the  market, hoyvever, is mucli more satisfactory than it yvas only a short time  ago, yvhen anticipations of the imposition  of an import duty by the Indian government carried the price to the lowest  figure on record. The recent recovery  and the present steadiness of the silver  market are, in fact, regarded by competent authorities as indications that the  acirte phase in the decline of silver has  been passed. It is urged, yvith considerable show of reason for the argument,  that the danger of further legislative  interference on the part of either' the  United States or-India is past, that the  market for the first time in a number of  years is noyv governed by purely commercial considerations, and that its  recovery yvithout assistance from the  extreme depression of value is indicative  of an ability to attain a somewhat better  level.  In this connection the question of supplies is of importance. Data are still  lacking on which to determine hoyv far  the depreciation yvhich set in after the  closing of the Indian mints and the  repeal of the Sherman law has affected  production. It is known that many  low-grade silver mines at the yvest have  shut doyvn permanently, but, on the  other hand, the concerns whose operations are suspended do not include any  impressive number of large producers.  Medium qualities and ores yvhich contain  lead, and ate therefore in demand for  fluxing purposes, continue to be produced in obedience to the demands of  smelters. The output passing through  the hands of Neyv York bankers and  "bullion dealers is certainly reduced,  but this-is 'always the case in the yvinter  and early spring months, yvhen niining  operations, as well as the shipment of  ore to the smelters, are subject to interruption. The London market also displays some diminution of supplies, and  is more than usually liable to appear  bare after the execution of any considerable orders to buy. How far this represents a curtailment of production in  other silver-producing countries as yvell  as in the United States it is difficult at  this stage to estimate. The probability  of the case is that yvhile the output of  silver has been tangibly reduced by the  fall in its price during the past year, the  aggregate decrease has been less striking  than it* the matter yvere regulated solely  by the fact, and yvere not affected by the  production of lead and other metals in  which silver plays the part of a byproduct.  'The demand for silver in connection  with Eastern trade is accordingly the  main factor in regulating quotations, its  influence being even more plainly discernible than yvhen our oyvn purchase  of 54,000,000 ounces -per annum yvas in  progress. India has closed its mints,  and silver, instead of being available as  a medium of exchange betyveen Europe  and India, now occupies the position of  a mere article of merchandise in'the latter  country. The native population of the  country, it is true, showed after- the  mints yvere closed an ability to absorb  silver yvhich has not. yet been fully explained. The imposition of an import  tax of 5 per cent, by the Indian government iipes 'not altogether explain the  marked and sudden falling off of this  "dernandr whichmay^hoyveverrbepartly"  ascribed to the firmness of the Indian  money markets. China and the far East  are for the moment-at least the chief  absorbers of the white metal. . The  principal demand, in fact, on yvhich the  recent recovery is based,appears to have  come from that quarter. The situation  in this respect is expressed by the London Statist in the following yvords: "We  are noyv rapidly approaching the beginning of the tea season in China. So  little is knoyvn of the internal economy  of China that it is not possible to say  with any certainty whether the hary;est-  ing of the tea crop leads to a material  increase in the silver circulation of the  empire. Merchants and. bankers yvho  '"' have lived in,the treaty ports and ought,  therefore, to have some knowledge on  the subject think that the circulation is  -very little affected. But, hoyvever that  maybe, there is no doubt at all that  the beginning of the export season does  lead to a strong demand for silver. Al-  reacly the prepiirations for export are  beginning. If' is reasonably assumed  that China yvill have a great advantage  over India in the coming season. Roughly, the Indian exchanges are about 33  per cent, above the Chinese exchanges,  ��������� and consequently the merchant in China  exporting tea can afford to take a gold  price in Europe about 33 per cent, below  that accepted by his Indian competitor,  and yet receive as much silver as the  Indian receives. There are strong hopes,  consequently,, that China" will recover  her old position in the tea trade, and  that naturally is stimulating the Chinese  demand for silver. Then, again, there  is the Japanese demand, and the Indian  demand may at any time again  spring up."���������Bradsireets.
