To Editor ot tbe Nelson Mineb.  _  Sir:���������lu your issue of the 15th inst.,  you gave your readers au expression of  opinion-oil the great question low be-  toie the people ol* the United States in  particular and tlie-world in general  which cannot but be treated as a huge  joke by all who believe that there are two  sides to every nuestiou, but for the sake  ���������of those who do not take the trouble to  look beneath the surface, it is perhaps  better that some answer should be made,  so with your generous permission I will  ask for space to oiler some views ou the  other side.  The picture you give usof the country  under bi-ruetallisin, but for its due and  fateful ending, reads quite like a chapter  of the "Arabian Nights," aud exhibited  au editorial imagination of a very high  order; in it you leave the plane of practical  politics and soar into regions of pure  speculation, while your prophetic eye  professes to read iu the stars ' of its  owu creation, a state of things truly  fearful and wonderful. But to get,down  business. *���������  You use a powerful argument agaiust  the re mouetization of silver by the U. S ,  that American securities are falling rapidly and every one is trying to scramble  out ot them at the merest prospect of a  silver victory. Experience has taught  that when auy great political issue is at  ��������� stake,-and-no.one_kiio_ws_just_hojy_ things,  are goiug to turn, coinmeicial uneasiness  prevails, some one raises a cry of "fire!*'  and the public like sheep in a flock  scramble helter skelter over each other in  their endeavor to turn their paper into  coin, aud in consequence the price of  stock comes tumbling down.. An American election where the tariff is tlie issue  lias a similar effect on the British manufacturers. A president's message to congress has dropped American Rails on the  Loudon market and so on; and so iu  this case, it is not surprising that with or  without real cause, investors should be  withdi awing fiom American securities-  when the money power is crying "lire!"  , You predict that the States will be  flooded with silver, lhat it will become  the worlds dumping ground for that  metal, that the vaults of, the banks, ami  the tills of the trade-men will fairly burst  with it, that all the silver in the world  will there pile itself up into a ."'gigantic  .mountain," and although you admit that  while this is taking place it will have to  be exchanged for the products of the  iniiies, the forest and the prairie, you  say that it will bring iu the "end untold  misery on the community! What political economy! Oh shades_p_ Stuart Mill!-  You evidently ^ do uot think that a  corner iu silver would follow the same  laws as a corner in any other commodity  aud bring wealth to the nation controlling it." If such a corner could possibly  take place, the bullion value of the metal  would so far exceed its coinage value  thai it would be sold again as bullion to  tbe enormous advantage of the Q. S.  But perhaps you are not aware that the  world's total stock of -silver c _>uld ho  stored in the slope of. the Silver King  mine and eveu then you might go with a  galaxy of caudles in search of it and experience some difficulty in liudiug it,  what a gigantic mountain that amount  would form!  You say that the nations of the earth  would melt down into bars "every  silver  object  they   possessed"   coins,    plates,  trinkets etc.,   and sell them to the people  of the States.   You seem entirely to forget the value in mechanical skill which !  these ornament? possess and which make j  them as ornaments much more valuable.',  than their weight in silver   coin, even  at Sl.29 per ounce, the" highest possible :  price under free coinage at 16 to 1. Why j  then such si tremendous sacrifice. j  You no doubt also expect an enormous ;  increase in the production of silver mines. |  it is probaKe that to a certain extent  this would be true, "but the fact should j  not be overlooked that at the same timp i  the cost of mining per ounce would also '  -   (Continued on fourth page.)  NEWS OF THE GAMPS.  NEIjSON.  In addition to farther smelling plant  the Hall Mines will put in a refining  plant at Nelsou and thus save freight on  their exports.  Discoveries of rich quartz on this particular hill have been fiequent, and this  is scarcely to be wondered at when it is  remembered that the Poorman is on oue  side and the rich alluvial gravels of Forty  Nine Creek on the other. The locality is  practically a northern spur of that group  of hills known ns Toad Mountain, nnd  rich specimens of free milling gold  quartz have been found all over it.  A rich discovery ot free milling gold  ore lias beeu made ou the Majestic. This  claim which is situated on the hill between Eagle and Forty-Jiine Creeks, id  the property ot John Miles the well  known constable of Nelson. It s under  bond at present to eastern parties  for 830,000. A payment of $1,000 becomes  due early in September and Sl'4,000 in  March and also September 1897. The  bonders have five men at work and are  engaged in pushing ahead the tunnel as  well as opening up the vein et other  points.  KOSSLAND.  The new compressor plant ou the Columbia and Kootenay was to start work  on Wednesday.  Another discovery of a fine body of  clear ore has been made on the Mugwump, 800 feet east of that reported last  week. The new discovery which is close  to the boundary line between the Mugwump and Citv of Spokane, is being  opened up as fast as possible by day and  night shifts.  The Crown Point mine has practically  become the property of Mr. Gooderham.  He has bought all the stock with the ex  ception of about 40,000 treasury shaies  wlrch are in the hands of the public.  Mr. T. G. Blackstock the .well kuown  barrister and Mr. Geo. Stimson a financial agent have negotiated the deal. The  purchase includes four adjoining claims  uot previously owned by the -Crowu  Point. They are the Tiger, White Swan,  Hidden Treasure, and Uncle Sam. The  same parties have also bonded the R. __.  Lee and Maid of Eriu. The price paid  has not transpired but it is probably in  the neighborhood of 8400,000.  are several locations showing Urge bodies*  of ore running from 84 00 to 816.00 at  surface.  Across the lake two miles from ���������the  townsite there are large bodies iron and  copper sulphide ore carrying valuo from  a truce to 817.01) aud. only a hole from  one to five teet deep.  The mineral claim .Boston Boy is now  being worked by Lowe, Bostwick Hendee  snd Spellman. It shows a fiue vein of  iron cupping which assays 88 at surface.  On Thursday's boat of this week from  Trail 4 men came to work 5 claims across  thc lake. The claims are owned by Cbas  Gray, O. Kmidsen, S. J. Graham and  Harvey Hogleeon, all.of Trail, B. C.  Mr. R. Bostwick ot Trail came in on  the Str. Lyttou' on Monday ���������*vening to  begin work on the claim Comit. Tins  claim has n very fine vein, assaying at  surface 87,00 in "gold and 3 ounces silver.  The two cl-ims, Imperial and another  are now being worked by their owners,  Thos Alexander and John Stussi. On  the Imperial' they have a hole aboutlO  feet deep and it is a very fine showing nt  that depth which is surely hu improvement on the surface assay of 86.  The Genoa, owned by Bostwick, Spellman, Lowe, and Hendee, has a showing  of a five foot ledge assaying 811.00.   The  SLOCAN.  The .Sandon waterworks have been  completed at a cost ot 88000.  Eleven men are now employed on the  Currie.  The Queen Bess has 125 tons on the  dump and.will commence shipping.  Ore has again been -truck on the  Enterprise and also on the West Mount.  A rich strike has beeu made on the  Oregon at Ten Mile. It is a four foot1  vein of peacock and grey copper.  The Ledge says that Vancouver  people are turning their attention to the  Slocau, but that most of them want a  good shipping mine with a boarding  house on it for 8f>00. Some want a concentrator too.  Work has been renewed upon the  Arlington, men having been sent up  on the '2i3_d.  The Canadian Company, controlling  the Wellington'and other mines near  Bear Lake are doing considerable  development' work under an able and  careful management. They are also  building a wagon road from the mine  to their siding on the Kaslo & Slocan  railway "ouhder_the~direction"-o���������������their-  engiueer W* R* Ashmith,  Work is being carried on towards  developing the Bondholder group on  the divide between Springer aud Lemon creeks. R. Campbell Johnson is in  charge. *   .,  '  Sandon at this time is a worthy rival  of liossland. It's floating population is  dense. Great development is being  carried on in the vicinity and although  not as attractive a place as Rossland  it premises to lead that place in the  matter of value produced.  The .waggon -road now being-built  up Ten Mile to the' Enterprise will-  open up an exceptionally "promising  district upon* which . men . have been  working I'or the past live years'without any transporting facilities.  At Mhe present time tlie trail down  the Slocan Kiver to Slocancrossing is  nearly cleared out. This route is a  (���������nick way of reaching the south from  the Slocan poinls, The Trail is very-  lair and tho distance from the Lake to  the Crossing some :t*> miles. Some  good timber and fairly heavy soil  occurs in this wide valley.  WATERLOO.  The Lillooet and Fraser River people  are ' working between 25 or3(J'men principally on the Aaron group.  Speaker Higgins with Messrs. Corsan,  Monteith aud Crawford, have been examining the miues in the Waterloo district.  Mr. Higgins is interested iu the Charleston group consisting of "the Charleston,  Iron King and Jessie and is pleased with  the showing. Men are at work developing  the Charleston. .  DEER    1'ABK.  (From our Correspondent.)  Capt. Fitzstubbs has in the Queen of  the West a line showing. There is probably six feet of ore at the surface which  assays 819.00. _,  THE A00IDENT ON THE OcLUMBIA.!  LOCAL   NEWS.  Mr. J. H. Silli* of Fratikford, Ontaiio,  ono of the Toronto Excursionists, was on  board the Nalmsp at Waterloo when the  ncaideut to Coir er happened and was  seen by The Misku reporter on Tuesday.  He said he saw the accident and Captain  Gore was not to blame as far as he could  see in any respect There were several  men iu small boats trying to save the  man. and the steamer did not leave until  it was seen that he hnd sunk for the last  lime, he should say it was between 15  nnd 20 minutes after the boat wns upset  before the steamer started. It must have  been 15 minutes at the least.  A representative of The MiNF.it was on  Ihe "Nakusp" on Thursday and the following is the result of his visit.  CaptaiuGore was seeuaud said he made  tbe usual landing at Waterloo and was  sigunlled all clear for leavi*>g. He theu  rang the bell as usual to start. The  wheel was kept goiiiK all the time at  Waterloo owing ,to the iu rent, and it is  impossible to see anything in the water  from  the  pilot  house  until it is quite a  distance from  house  the boat.

Mr. I  Ellis is interested in a number of claims  here and is showing up some very fine I  property. J  Messrs. John Limbman, and Robert  Dodd came to town on the Str. Nakusp  on Tuesday. * Mr' Limbman has recently purchased 100,000 shares in The  Young America, at Rtssland. at $1.00.  Mr. Limbmau has had two prospectors  in here for the past six weeks and is well  pleased with the locations made. He  will probably |invest in claims here at  once.  The owners "of the. Wild Horse are  working away 100 feet under ground.  For 50 feet they have been working  through slate impregnated with copper  and iron, carrying about 82.00 in gold.  If the theory that veins get their value  from adjoining formation is right, the  vein in the Wild Horse, when struck  should be O. K. This vein is traceable  and located for one and one-half miles,  strong cropping all the way.  MARRIAGES.  Aug. 18th, at the Methodist Church,  Nelson, by the Rev. Geo. Morden. Geo.  H.

Aug. 2CthTih_the_Church~of~England  Mission Room, Nelson, by the Rev. H. S.  Akehur.t. William Kerrs Browne to  Mary Anne Amelia Davies, both of  Waneta, B.C. .  HIGHWAY ROBBERY.  George B. McCauley, secretary of the  Cariboo Gold Mining Compauy was Btuck  up and robbed of three gold bars valued  at $11,000 on the road from Camp Mc-  Kiuney to Marcus. When about"2^  miles from camp he was- hailed by a  masked mau with the demand "Give us  yonr money" acceutuated by a levelled  carbine. Mr. "McCauley then according  to his owu uccouut got out of the buggy  went to tho back Jof it where, the bullion  was and without moie ado threw the bags"  ou to the bank and also handed ont some  cash he had iu his. pockets. He .was  unarmed and made no resistance.  This is the most extraordinary, story  we have ever heard of. It is almost incredible to believe that au officer of the  company should undertake to carry 811,-  (XX) worth of gold, the property of the j  interests he is paid !  who wus drowned got on board at Waterloo and whilst the meu were unloading  and busy, with the help of passengers,  put the "boat iuto the water ou thc off  side, a thing which is strictly forbidden.  The man then got into the boat aud was  carried by the current to the .wheel  where the boat was upset. The drowned  man alone was to blame iu the matter.  Had he paid the freight ou the boat the  crew would have put it oft" for him on the  proper side and ther. would have been  no accident.  Chief Engineer Chapman was attending to his engines and felt the wheel  strike the boat. He rau to the side and  saw the boat, upset. He siezed a life  buoy, aud threw it overboard. He did  not see the man in the water, but shouted  "man overboard" and sent word forward.  Then the bell rang aud he had to attend  to his engines, the lines were thrown off  the shore and he went ahead slowly.  After a short time the Captain rang for  full steam aiid they went on.  Mate McAlister could not find the  owner of the boat, and did not have  anything to do with putting it. off,  was told after the steamer was loosed  from shore that a boat was upset and  a man was in the water. He looked  out and saw men trying to'reach something in the water with poles, and was  afterwards told it was the man,' who  was then floating with his head under  water, and that the poles reached  within two feet of him. It was impossible to render any assistance from  the steamer. .  Mr. G. C Hodfce was a' passenger.  The steamer was at the landing above  ten minutes and he had time to read  a long letter and answer it. He heard  no noise ������nd did not know of any accident until afterwards.  From all that could be gathered no  one on the steamer could be blamed in  the matter. If the* freight on the boa I  had been paid, and the crew unloaded  it as usual, tJiere would have been nn  accident. The small hoat seen could  do more than the steamer and the  man wasdiowued and sank befoie tue  steamer-was-far fron:-t-h.--landiug'.   SETTLEMENT  OF   THE   SCHOOL  QUESTION.  The Globe's - Ottawa correspondent  anuounces that as a result of a friendly  conference betweeu Premier Laurier and  his colleagues and the Manitoba ministers, Messrs.

Tue Toronto Globe thus iliaeusses the  prospects of British Columbia as com-  ' pared with the Transvaal. The discovery of gold iu the Transvaal, it says,  occurred in 1886 ou the Witwatersrand,  the held being a nanow strip of land,  the greatest width of whicli is 11 miles-  The development, of the Hand was by no  means so rapid as the development in  the British Columbia miniug fields gives  promise-of being. The Rand yielded in  1887 35,000 ounces of gold, worth a little  less than $600,000..   This bus beeu gradu-  all increased until in 1891 the production  was 2,024,162 ounces, valued at close upon $35,000,000. The output duriug the  present year will be at least $40,000,000  in value, and may total S-0,000,00. yearly  by 1900, when the maximum production  will be reached.- The Trail Creek district alone iii British Columbia bids fair  to rival the Band. It is but a little over  a year since the first mine, Le Roi, began  to ship ore. ' The production of the camp  last year was in the neighbourhood of a  million dollars, and this year it will, according to the statements of men with  no inducement to deceive, reach ab least  $5,000,000. A single mine already pays  monthly dividends of 825,000, and oc-  cassionally of $50,000, and there are' 11  mines actually producing nud shipping  ore to the smelters. The production of  gold, therefore, ou this British Columbian  hill sde camp .is already greater thau  that of the Hand in the second year of  its development. Looking at the facts.  as they stand, and lemembering how  difficult it must be to fiud profitable employment for surplus Britisli capital at a  time when investments in the United  States are no longer thought of, and  when South Africa, the great Held of the  past decade, is piactically closed because  of wm*, it seems probable that m a year  or two at the most Canadian mines "ill  iind a place ou the Euglish stock lists.  and the exploitation of the mineral  wealth of the Dominion will be seriously  begun.  'Now nothing, is sweeter to our ears  than to hear the praists ol our country,  bat we do not wish nor do we like to  hear them overstated. There jis no mine  that we know of paying $25,000 a month.  in dividends, nor are there 11 miues at  Trail Creek actually shipping ore to the  smelters, though throughout Kootenay  there are at least 40 shipping mines. *'  John's pictures, especially his early  ones are familiar to the whole - world.

As there does not happen to hi; any  spot on the' southern boundary line  between those degrees of longitude,  which on ���������he 49th parallel are far out  in the Pacilic the information is rather  vague.  The collapse of the Anglo American  Hydraulic Company on the Similka-  meen is giving rise ton great "deal of  comment throughout the country and  disappointed shareholders are trying  to make some one responsible, criminally for t heir losses. The prospectus  ot* the company upon the stiength of  which the shareholders weie induced  to invest their money would be an interesting document at the present  time. If it is plain that the prospects  of the mine,.as therein set forth, weie  of to sanguine a natuie, either purposely or in consequence of careless  investigation, then someone ought to  suffer. The whole management, of  companies in British Columbia -is too  lax and there is a wide door for di.-  honesty. The law is good enough. If  the special British Columbia made  article is not satisfactory, there is the  Imperial Act 'embodied in our own  Statutes. But Acts ot Parliament are  of no avail if they are not enforced.

The Gem mine, at Wallace, Idaho, has  closed down indefinitely. The pumps  have been withdrawn, and the mine will  be allowed to fill with water. The low  price of silver aud lead is tbe cause ol  closing. With the value ofthe products  about "half what they were when the  mine was opened, aud all expenses about  the same as then, the margin to the  owners was small. Everything is in good  shape, and'with higher prices on silver.oi  lead, work, will be resumed with a full  force. The mine has employed about 125  men, but for months past 60 to 80 has  been the usual force.  Some very rich gold-bearing quaitz  has recently been discoveied near the  village^ of .Lillooet. About two months  ago the Golden Eagle began to attract  attention aud siuce has been found to be  very rich; A latter discovery is the  Golden Cache, iii which T. W. Patterson  and Wm. Munsie. of Victoria, have  secured interests, This mine was discovered several months ago by Joe Cope-"  laud, on Indian hunter, and was sold to  Victoria and Vancouver parties. The  ledge is situated 3,000 feet above sea  level and 1,600 feetobove CayoosLt creek.  It crops out on the side of the precipice  and is traceable for 2,50(1 to 3,000 feet,  showing a width of from 22 feet to 24  feet, and underlying a slate formation  carrying gold. The ore shows gold all  over tbe ledge, and the ��������� specimens  brought to Victoria are literally studded  with the yellow metal. Assavs running  all the way from 8.00 to 330,00(1 to the  ton have been made. The extent of the  ledge has, or course,' yet to be detir-  miued by development, but enough is  exposed to prove the mine to be of great  value.  A Full Line of 1847 Eogers Bros.' Table Ware.

The assizes last week monopolised  public interest in Nelson and very nearly produced a crisis that would have  set people talking far and wide.  The . remarks of the Cutis.' Justice  when the Grand Jury made it? first  presentment were not altogether of  that complimentary nature which we  are accustomed to hear from the bench  on these occasions. Nominally the  Grand Jury is almost a sovereign  body. Its powers are theoretically  unlimited, it is only less powerful than  the Judge in that he has the power of  discharging it at any moment. The  language that usually passes therefore  between Judge and Jury is ofthe most  courtly nature, and to call it a sensation scarcely expresses the effect of Ihe  Chief Justice':, speech on Thursday.  jManyofthe recommendiitions of the  Grand Jury wen; of great importance,  particularly those relating to tlie bridges and sewers, others were compara-  -tively trivial, and there were some  Which reflected on the Government  Agent with relation to the administration of the Vagrant Act and the granting of licenses.

Chief Justice and he asked with considerable sarcasm and indignation if  the Grand Jury had no recommendation to make in respect to the removal of the powder magazine. For the  moment the fighting instincts that  were characteristic of the politician  got the better of the judge. But he  grasped the wrong weapon. Too  eagerly he flew to a blade that could  only react on himself. The Jury was  merciful when in its second presentment it so delicately alluded to the  fact   that it.was.Mn.   Davie's own  NOTES.  The Trail Creek News has a very  slrong article, written satirically, upon  the accident to the Ferryman at  Waterloo Landing. It virtually  brings the gravest charges against the  officers of the S. S. Nakusp and directly implicates the Captain himself  in an abominable deed. In the  meantime the Captain's friends, and  they are many, will refuse to credit  (he insinuations against him.  Since writing the above we have  taken the trouble to make some enquiries into the matter and a representative of TriK AlixEK has seen  Captain Gore, and others present at.  th accident, and their statements will  be found on another page. These go to  prove at; least that the Trail Creek  News has been premature in bringing  such gross accusations against the  Captain, and the Company.  It is understood that the petition  against the election of Mr. Bostock  will fall to the ground, and a good  thing too. It was neither bribery or  corruption that prompted the large  majority of electors to vote for him.  It was a plainly expressed desire on  their part to have him as their representative at Ottawa. Having got him  they, want no more bother in the matter. They simply want to pursue their  occupations of farming or mining in  peace, and in doing so they believe  they will receive material assistance  from their new member.

At one time it appeared as if a battle  royal was imminent of which no one  could foresee the end. The Judge,  alluding to a practice, not unknown in  England, of adding new peers to a  refractory House of Lords, hinted that  the limits of the Grand" Jury were  wide,, while that body itself was lixed  in its stern and perfectly just resolve  not to be dictated to by anyone. Fortunately, after sleeping on it, more  moderate counsels prevailed on both  sides, and each saw the wisdom of that  give-and-take policy . from whicli  cometh peace.  It is to be regretted that the outcome of the whole business is that the  magazine remains. * ll could scarcely  be expected that the Grand Jury could  swallow its dignity anel come.down,  but it will be well for the next Grand  Jury' to. remember the Judges words,  that with their help he had the power  to remove it.  7'PIE SHOOTING SEASON.  The frequent changes in the Game  'Act give rise- to a good deal of uncertainty as to the proper limits of the  season.- The same, may also afford a  useful cloak for wilful poachers. The  Act of- ISO. provides that the close  time for caribou, deer, wapiti, moose,  hare, mountain goat and sheep is from  1st January until 31st July. The  shooting season commenced therefore  on the 1st of this month and lasts up  to the 31st of December. Blue Grouse,  ptarmigan, (white grouse), fool hen  and "wild duck of all kinds" are inviolate until the 1st of September.  Clause 9 provides that toj.he East of  the Cascades (and Kootenay is to the  East) prairie hen, prairie chicken, and  willow and ruffled grouse shall not be  killed for two years from the passage  o of the Act.  The intention of the frame.- of the  bill was evidently to continue the prohibition against the sale of does.   In  All Europe, and the United States  are doing honor to Li Hung Chang,  Viceroy and Grand Chancellor, or  whatever answers to those'positions in  the Celestial Empire. At the same  time the countrymen of the distinguished statesman and traveller, who  dwell in the West of America are  treated as little better than outlaws.  They are only permitted to enter under  heavy fine and they are regarded as the  scum beneath our feet. All this is perfect ly proper of course but we pity the  diplomats who have to lie and cringe  before the yellow jacket of China's  greatest man,     "  W. J. G.  DICKSON.

Whitehead (alais  Murphy), an Irish political prisoner  has been released under the clemency  of the Crown from Portland Prison.  It appears that Whitehead is an  American citizen and it is sought in  some American papers.to work up a  little sympithy for him by saying that  his mind has become unbalanced by  the severity with which he was treated  in the English prisons. Par be it from  us to "deprive the interesting lunatic  (if his mind really is unbalanced) of  any.comfort" that may - come to him  in. the shape of sympathy, but it  would be just as well for the" well  meaning sympathizers to remember  that the crime for which tho gentleman was convicted was for trying to  "unbalance" the heads and limbs of  perfectly innocent citizens with very  "severe" charges of dynamite,  Talking of Acts of Parliament and  Companies, The Province of last Saturday has an interesting article on Mining Stocks. It says that it. has been  informed lhat if the matter came to  be' tested, purchasers of so-called  "Non-assessable treasury stock" might  be called upon to pay the difference  between the price at which they bought  in and the par value. The uncertainly that'hangs over this matter is to be  deplored. It is possible that investors  would only be liable to the credit 01 s  of the company in the ev.nt of winding up. If this is the case it would be  as well for them to keep an eye on the  directors and check any extravagence  in time. Shareholders in British Companies have the right at all times of  examining the books of the company.  The votes of Treasury Shareholders  would probably count for little as their  holdings are small compared to those of  the original proprietors, but it must be  remembered that if the Treasury  Stock is assessable, probably the stock  issued to the original shareholders is  assessable also and if a call is made no  vote can be recorded at any meeting  in respect of stock upon which any  calls remain unpaid.

You say that in London even now "it  is all up" with a proposition which depends for success' upou silver at a certain  price.!' Yes.if I attempted to Hoat a  minf*.. depending for success upon the  price of silver beiny SI.50 or S2 0O per  ouucd 1 shoud fancy it would be-all up  with it. There are many such mines, tlie  tich ones aie comparatively lew.  You say that ail the best men in the  TJ. S. are ai,'iiitist free silver, the leading  bankers, financiers, .tc. "No doubt the  great monopolists and boud-holders, the  gold miinipulatorsaiiil Wall street gamblers, the money lenders and money  changers, the Government wire pullers  and treasury gold-sackers are a* dent  supporters of the hiugle gold standard  and their cleverness c.usists in seeing on  which side their own bread is buttered,  and if by these you mean "the best men"  iu the couutry I .can only exclaim, the  Lord pity such a country '  Truly money is a great power, and in  this instance it has bound itself together  to buy thc people's votes. But eveu of  these, uot all are so minded, as the following extracts from a speech by W. P.  St. John, President of one of the leading  National banks of New York, made at  the recent Silver Convention in St. Louis,  will show.    He said���������  "The fountainhead of our prosperity  has run dry. Our farmers all over the  countrv have endured the depression iu  prices, until tbey get about $8.00 or 80.00  per acre for an expenditure of ������1000 and  the like. Their credit at the country  store is exhausted. The couutry store  ceases to order from the city meic'iants,  the city merchants reduce tlieir demand  upon the manufacturer- The manufacturers aie bound t > curtail. The conse-  queuceis that employees and elements  of labour are being discharged and wages  lowered to those who continue iu employ.  The sufferings of the farmers are thus  enforced upon the city merchants, the  manufacturers aud all forms of labour.  These combined elements constitute the  overwhelming majority of voters. The  banker also ia without prosperity unless  prosperity*' is general throughout the  country,'' and he goes on to show that  tn renew the.fonu_tiii_he.irl of prosperity  the mints must b 'opened to silver.  . And now I will quote auother great  banker and this time au Englishman to  show you that the question is not considered so preposterous over there, and  with this I will close this letter.  Lord Lidderdale a former Governor of  the Bank of England* a no small authoi-  ity on financial questions, at a recent  banquet held in Loudon, said :���������  "If the American people bad the courage of conviction and adopted the double  standard of gold and silver, at no matter  what ratio, they would inside of a year  command the trade of the East, India,  the StraitR; China and Japa". Ui less  England should follow suit and adopt a  bi-metallic standard, she would inside of  18 months cease to be a commercial factor in the markets of the world."

In localities where lead ores and  fuels are scarce and almost unattainable, our  pyritic, water jacketed Matte Smelter lias  been recognized with highly satisfactory results, and lias been thoroughly tested on various pyritic, sulphide and arsenide ores, in capacity of 2 to 80 tons per day. It is the most  practical, cheapest and simplest method of  gold mid silver ore matting and concentrating  that is known to-day.  It requires no extraordinary skill, no lead  ores, no fluxing material, and no fuel of any-  kind for the 9mclter after it is started. The  sulphur in the ore is its natural fuel only, and  sits cost has no comparison with any other process of concentrating.
