As" Big as a Cake of Soap   Chipped  a Rock���������A Fabulous Report.  off  The World young man, while on a  trip to the East, had a conversation  with Mr. H. H. Jones of Port Hope,  from whom he learned of a find of gold,  reputed to be fabulous.  Mr. Jones is a business man, well  known in this city, whose word can be  relied upon. He says that some years  ago an Indian discovered a ledge of  white quartz in a spur ' cf the Rocky  Mountains containing a.deposit of gold  so rich that with his natchet he broke  offa piece of solid g .Id' about one-half  the idze of an ordinary cake of soap.  This piece of gold, it is said, is in the  possession of one of the. men to whom  the find was reported, and shows plainly ,t.he mark of the blow which broke it  from the led*.. The ledge'the Indian  reported to show, an immense .area pi  of solid gold. Hejgave explicit directions as to its location, and would have  conducted a party to'it had not an unfortunate accident ended-his life. The  secret is known to but two white men  besides Mr. Jones, and they are about  to organize a company of reliable Canadians with means for the purpose of  locating and securing the "richest deposit of gold in America." Mr. Jones  has so mueh faith in the . deposit that  he is selling out his prosperous business in Port Hope,  and;   with   a  few  We regret we were last week led to  make the statement the Noble Five  mine had closed down temporarily.  'The explanation 'we'get now is that  the foreman got full, and fired a good  many of the meii, who spread the report of the closing down. We got our  information - from some of the discharged men.' The foreman has since  been discharged with several of tho  miners, and tlio vacant places are all  refilled and the mine is operating to  its fullest capacity,_ We aim at get-  tint; the facts, but we cannot always  get them even from those who ought  to know thorn. Tbe pubTo will be  pleased to know the circumstances are  now worse than they are, and that this  mine is now pushing work ahead with  its usual vigor and energy.

Rabbit who shot and killed  James Hamilton at Granite creek on  ��������� September IS, has been committed for  trinlat the. Kamloops assizes. The  verdict of the coroner's jury was to the  effect that ti.e shooting was in self-  defense. Mrs. Ra bbitt's story was substantially that Hamilton assaulted her  and threw her to tho ground, but she  managed to escape from him. A few  minutes later he went after her again  and she shot him with a Winchester  rifle. She bclived her life to be. in  danger.  -The greatest gold mine of the , world  is the sea.' The .scientists, Sondstadt  and Minister, after making a number  of experiments, arrived at the conclusion that the water of the oceans contained about one.grain of gold to every  ton. One grain is not..much, but this  figure has its value when,we take into  consideration the immense extent of  oceans, which, as a whole, would, at  this estimate contain a total of-10,250,-.  000,000 tons of gold. The latter is found  in tho state of iodide, and the iodide  that enters into tho combination would  amount to something like -1,42S,S00,000  tons ���������   '  B. R.

Saskatchewan  river near Edmonton, a'report of which  appeared in the Miner of September 11.  This sand is said to assay . as   high' -as  $400 in gold but according to Mr.  Garvin, if it only contained-one-fifth  that  viiluc,'he 'could handle   it   profitably  and extract over 95'per cent  .   His process is   a   bromide   solution  after drying and roasting and the   cost  is said not to exceed S2 or S3   per Ion.  For the drying and rqastiug he   has', a  specially; constructed furnace .of  his  own    design,   which : he   claims   will  handle the sand rapidly and   participi-  tate for future use, all sulphuric fumes.  His   bromide   solution,   he   says,    is  thoroughly harmless and can be  taken  in the mouth   with   impunity.     The  gold in solution is precipitated by  sulphurated hydrogen'.

During last winter some work was  done on the claim-in the shape of driving a tunnel, but, nothing remarkable  was struck at that time by thc owners.  About six weeks ago, however, Mr.  Sanderson started work once more with  a, force.of six men in the old workings.  At a point wnere he began, about 30  feet in the mountain, he noticed tlie  rock improving in appearance and becoming more and more highly mineralized. He at once began to sink oil  the ledge in an almost perpendicular  direction, with the result that the ore  increased daily in value as depth was  attained. The native and brittle silver could readily bo seen with the  naked eye, the ore also being full of  black sulphurets and pyrites of iron.  Assays from samples   taken   within  ���������New York.

The first movement  in the direction was   made   when   the  National Park Bank paid its entire debit balance of $5S6,000 in gold.     Two  other banks have1  also   paid, gold   in  settlement of the debit balances.   It is  considered likely that other banks will  have to follow suit shortly.     Just   at  present the banks mostly prefer to receive bills rather than gold in payment  of their credit balances.   Gold   is paid  into .the clearing house in the shape of  clearing house gold certificates,  which  is the most convenient   form   of   pay-  men t,'a_ it does not involve any counting or so much handling of  so   much  gold.

The Mining Review  ' SANDON, BRITISH COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY OCTOBER 9,1897.  subsckiition s2 00 _p__r yeau  Sthictia* in Advance  THE PRICE   OF SILVER.  The   fluctuation     in   the   price   ol  silver   is   the   all   important  question  with tlie   silver-bearing sections of the  world,   and; with none   more   than the  people oi the   Kootenay country, as it  is their all.      The   gold,   copper and  lead   are important elements   consid-  erd  in   the value   of production ; but  altogether insufficient in themselves to  retain   the   necessary  interest  in   the  country   its   proper   development   demands.    Some nre of the opinion that  thc cause, of the low   price prevailing  is over production���������an excess of supply over demand.    While this is theoretically true, it is not unqualifiedly the  fact, as the growing commercial needs  of the world   are decidedly   in excess  of the actual production  of gold, the  Only competitor of silver as a metallic  coin.    A few   unimportant   coumtrics  in the  commercial world   accept copper altogether, but from its bulk in proportion to-value, it need never be ser-  iously considered in a calculation.  For a< calculation let us look at the  naked facts. Last year the world's  entire output of gold   was   $205,000,-  there is in the world four and a half  billions of dollars of silver in circulation,or $3 per individual. To leave the,  currency even as solvent as it is on. a  gold basis, this four and a half billipns  of silver would have to - be displaced  by gold, and as we have shuwn at the  outset the annual increase of the yellow  metal is but $35,000,000. Supposing  commerce stood still, to accommodate  itself to the wishes of the gold bugs, it  would take about 129 years for the  gold increase to, supplant the present  circulation of silver. On the face of  it the idea is preposterous for even  .thought'' the gold increase kept up its  present pace, in 129 years the commerce of the world will be several  times what it is at present. The intentions of the gold bugs if allowed  full sway can then do little more than  stifle commerce.  It would be idle, as commerce  stands, to argue that metal and not  paper promises to pay should be made  the only medium ot circulation���������the  paper because of convenience will  doubtless for all time remain; and as  a greater volume for imperative demands is required,the only way to meet  requirements is in the more extensive  coinage of the metal that is readily  available.  the road between Camp MoKiimey and  Rock Creek, and not far from the  scene of the celebrated 'hold-up.'-'.No  trace of the murderer has been found,  and there Ib no clue to his identity,  but it is supposed the crime was com-  mited in revenge ,1'or the killing of  Martin Roderick, by Keane, : last  winter and , some slight suspicion is  .advanced that the murderer is the  brother of Roderick, who it is said, has  vowea to be revenged for his'brother's  death.; .  -^>t&500 ��������� IN ��������� G������LD������^  20   PRIZES.  1st Prize  2nd Prize.  3rd Prize  2 Prizes of  5 Prizes of  xo Prizes of  $200  100  5������  2 5   each.  10 each  5 each  $200  100  5������  ��������� 5������  5������  5������  $500  000'. and this year it is estimated at  $240,000,000, a.gain of $35',odo,po'o  or/about 17 per cent while the world's  demands must have" grown twice or  thrice as rapidly. ' Apart from the sentiment of the que. tion, for the expansion of trade, we must have currency  in excess of that assured by the possible "production of the yellow metal j  and this is fully evidenced by the fact  that the greater the increase", in the  . output of; gold, the greater has been  the demand for it occasioned by commercial requirements. A writer- in  the Review of Reviews notices, this  increased, demand, and he at once  comes' to the conclusion that this is  the .result of popular resolution to  ��������� make gold the only monetary standard of the whole commercial world.  He, however, . advances nothing to  reconcile the fac. with its inevitable  bearing���������-that great  as may be.the in-  _ie__c"-lii-iiic-- woi.a". piuductibn   of  gold, it is in no respect keeping, pace  with the world's commercial demands,  and the inevitable is in all such cases  ���������when, one element, superior though  it may be, is deficient to meet a want  resort is to the next - best substitute���������r  and in commerce silver is next to gold.  To depend.on gold alone, sentiment  to the contrary, means to cripple commercial progress ;'and, of course, that  is wholly at variance with the trend of  the world's,natural tendency.  The American   monetary   commissioners������������������Wolcott,     Stevenson     arid  Paine, all of them  bi-metallists, have  done   good   service  in England  and  Franco in awakening public sentiment  to the desirability of n eluding the white  metal in their monetary systems.  What  England may do in the matter at coming conferences, it is hard to say ; but  these commissioners  and other  agencies have awakened. considerable   interest in the silver question, and   Balfour and other leaders being for  some  time      at . least     bi-metallists,    may  ere long accomplish something in that  quarter.    France may not fall back on  the old system, the resumption of coinage, on its   old ratio 15 j4 to    1,   but  any reasonable approach to   it,   with  the reduced cost of; production, would  .serve a most useful purpose here.    To  sum up, the most plausible reason   for  the late ruling quotations is the apparent belief the output of gold   will   become sufficient for all purposes, but as  .   we have shown that   when   commerce  is increasing with a greater ratio   than  thc output of gold, with   a   wide   Sap  between them at the start, the expectations are standing on   most  untenable  grounds, and the efforts of those  leaning to that belief are only  stifling   the  legitimate development ot the   world's  trade and commerce.  The further this argument, that the  will output of gold in time be ample  for all necessities, is extended the flimsier it appears to be. All banking  institutions are supposed to issue their  promises to pay on a metallic basis,  and a most careful estimate places the  gold coin of "the world at $3,500,000,-  ooo-or about $2.33 per capita,as there  are about a billion and a half of people  living. Assuming half the population  was one way and the other engaged in  commerce, there would be but about  $4.50 per soul-to do.twith? Brought  to its logical significance how absurd  the contention appears.  The computation is that at   present  Prof. Cooper, who is now, holding  forth in town,as   a phrenologist, made  use of one very happy expression the  other night;    It was to  the effect that  persons inclined to constitutional diseases should not marry,   and he might  have   gone   farther    and   said ���������������������������'that  couples' predisposed   to constitutional  weaknesses   should   not marry.    It is  just  as well to   uridsrstand   that one-  halt the deaths of children, and young  people failing to   reach  maturity are  the  direct result of inherited deficiencies irom. one side or   die other,  and  perhaps both.     It may be   considered  sacrilege to say so, but  while mothers  and fathers   and-near  relatives, are  mourning   over   the death of children  and young people   declaring  that the  death is the act of God,   they  are, in  one siibstanstantial sense at least,- in  many   cases   libeling   their   creator.  While   from    the      Orthodox 7  point  of   view,    it    is'true,      no   ��������� death  occurs   without  the    intervention   of  the    creator,,    that     intervention . is  in   no    special     way     but    through  die  operation   Of   natural  laws, . that  parties about  to marry have but; little  regard tor."    With the fear of offending  some   supersensitive  or  extra modest,  people, w.e.remark..'that the same laws  of transmission that apply to the whole  animal   kingdom make   no exception  cf man.    These laws are studied   by  the cattle raiser  and observed by him  in  the propagation of his herds ;   but  entirely ignored or overlooked by him,  as well   as   others, when  it comes   to  selecting a partner  for himself.    No;  if young men   and young  women in  selecting partners, were   to   keep   the  plain language of nature's laws before  them   there would be  infinitely fewer  tears  shed over  the premature deaths  of their offspring and less libeling   the  fair  name of.  an unerring- and   ever  consistent creator.  PURITAN DAMES.  We hear a great  deal these days of  our puritan forefathers, but little  concerning the  wives, and mothers who landed; at  Plyniputh Rock  and "founded that  colony which was  destined to play  such a large part  iu ourhistory.  In 1621 Elder  Cushnian wrote  from Plymouth  that he would  not advise any  one to come here  who were not content to speed their  time, labors and  endeavors for the  benefit of those ,  who shall come  after, quitcly con-  te 11 ting . them-  ' selves with such  dships and difficul-  - ties as shall fall upon them."-  What self-renunciation and heroic purpose  was this! They drowned witches to be sure,  but that was no part of their purilanism. It  is to the puritan women we owe so much for  that spirit in our people which gives thein  the fortitude to endure hardship and stake  life and fortune for their convictions.  The American woiuen of to-day have the  spirit of their puritan mothers, but their  constitutions are not rugged or able to endure half the hardships of these New England ancestors. Very often they are run-'  down with weaknesses and irregularities  peculiar to their sex, and the constant drain  upon their vitality makes them chronic invalids. Many women hesitate to go to  their family physician, because they dread  the local examinations so generally insisted  upon by practitioners.  Such women should write Dr. R., V.  Pierce,.chief consulting physician of the  Invalids' Hotel and ; Surgical Institute,  Buffalo, N.Y., giving a full description of  their symptoms, history, etc., so thathe  can give them the best possible medical  advice. If.Dr. Pierc-'s Favorite Prescription seems to suit the. case the Doctor will  say so.���������- If not,.''then he will give medical  advice which will put such women on the  rapid road to recovery and health.

OCTOBER 9, 1897.  THE MINING REVIEW.  mm_ Wei.  A Six Month's Trip ol 13,000 Miles-  Dangers of the White  Pass.  In the'prrson of W. H. Secretan. of  Ottawa, siys a dispatch dated the 22nd  inst., Toronto has to-day in her midst  a real, live Klondyker. In an interview Mr. Secretan replied,  "I left Toronto on April 7th last for  Victoria, Br C, where on April 25th,   I  took the steamer Mexico   for Jeaheau,  Alaska.   Thence I proceeded in a small  steamer called the Alert to Dyca.     On  May 8th I crossed the summit   of   the  Chilcoot Pass, and the   same   night   I  arrived at Lake Linderma.',.     This   is  practically the head waters of t'negreat  Yukon river.     This   route,   although  very abrupt, is the shortest of them all,  and, so far as I could learn,   the   least  objectionable.   There was no snow   on  thc coast, but fair sledding   from   the  foot of the summi. downtoLinderman.  Here I was detained until   May   20th,  waiting for the ice to move out   (as   it  was too rotten to travel   over)   in   the  most villianous   weather imaginable���������  snow and sleet daily with   a   constant  gale of southerly wind   sometimes   increasing to a hurricane. - These storms  are, I consider the principal danger in  crossing these passes.   I moved on   to  Lake Bennett and built a good, staunch  boat, and started down stream on June  6th, the ice had gone out   on' the   1st.  I had five men and a dog on board, and  tuwed two Petcrboro canoes,   which   I  bought in Victoria . and   packed   over  the divide.   It is a wonderful   waterway,   through   Lake   Bennett,    Lake  .  Tagish,  Marsa   Lake,   Lake  Labarge,  Lewis river and Fort Selkirk, and then,  after passing the junction of the Pelly,  on down the mighty Yukon to Dawson.  Tho stream is very fast���������from  four to  seven miles an   hour. ���������  I ran all   thc  rapids, including   the   much   dreaded  White Horse, without accident.   I had  .. an Ottawa man with me,   and   it   was  child's play to him.    I ran   day   and  pjghfi, as there is no darkness, and did  tne trip in  about   eight   days,  actual  running time.   My best run  was   138  miles in 24 hr/urs.     I   was   becalmed  two and a half days   in   Labarge,   and  hauled out on the beach the first night  out on Lake Bennett, on account   of a  leak, so did not arrive till June   10th.  Dawson city has already been described.   It was booming when I got there.  There were about 2,000 people  scattered over one and a half miles   of river  ffront, sleeping eating,   gambling   etc.,  ajnongst   the  refuse,  filth,   and  rich  black muck, churned up by   the   busy  feet of the restless gold-seeker..    The  police were Veil under way with  their  barracks buildings, althouth they were  only a week ahead of me. -1 found,   as  I anticipated, that all   the   claims   on  Bonanza and Eldorado creeks had been  taken up.    In fact, all creeks   in   thif  district   had   been  staked   irom    the  mouth clean up the ice.     I   also   discovered that there was very  little pros  pecting'donc In  the   summer,   as   tin  surface water prevented it.   The rivers  Were as hank full, and it  was  next   to  impOBaihle to pole a boat   ur>   stream.  I employed my men's time by building  a cabin 12x20 a littly   below   Dawson,  which'I subsequently   sold   for'������500.  After remaining here a month I managed to   purchase   interests   in   some  very valuable claims on Bonanza   and  Dominion creeks    I started my   men  fo work on the Bonanza claim   building a cabin and cutting wood, etc., and  left on July the 26th on board the P. B.  Weare, river steamer for St. Michael's  I ran aground on a sandbar   two   days  later, and remained there disabled for  18 long, weary days and nights,   when  we were taken ofl'by the I. I.   Ilealy,  and did not   reach   St.   Michaels   till  Aug. 25th. just 30 days from Dawson, a  journey usually made   in   five   or'''six  day_.   I sailed in tho steamer-schooner  Excelsior for San Francisco next day���������  Aug. 27���������and on   Aug.   29th   she   ran  aground in Behriag Sea, about 60 miles  from land.   We managed to  float   her  after 17 hours by the passengers shoveling coal forward from the afterbunkcrs,  but, unfortunately, the   propeller   was  broken, only one of the   blades   being  left, and we were 800 miles  from  Una-  laska and  Dutch   Harbor,   where   we  were bound tg   take   on   coal.    This  place is in thc chain   of   Aleutian islands, and it took us .til).  Sept.   1st   to  reach there in our disabled state.    Remained till Sept. 6th, having to   beach  the vessel and   unship   the  propeller.  The Humboldt, a new vessel,   having  arrived from St. Miphael's,   bound   for  Seattle, I left the Excelsior  and   took  passage in -her, making  several   days  thereby, and arriving in Seattle _n the  morning of Sept. 13.   Wm. pgilvie was  , on board the Excelsior, and has, I =ee,  arrived in San Francisco, before   this.  We had about 90 passengers going out,  and, I fancy,.about $250,000   worth   of  dust.   There is no doubt at   all   about  the   wonderful   richnesfi. of  Eldorado  and Bonanza creeks,, but when   I   left  nothing else yery startling   had   been  discovered; Although Dominion   creek  was reported to have   good   prospects,  and   several   interests  had    ehanged  hands, $1,500 having been paid   for   a  one-quarter interest in an unprospected  claim.    Of  course,   inside   we , knew  nothing of  this   ore   excitement   ou t  : here, except from, the number   of  ves-  ��������� sels in St. Michael's   harbor   and   tbe  number of people  struggling  to  get  over the different passes.   I am afraid  there will be a shortage of provisions.  The only hope for the   people   at   the  diggings   is   that    this    unfortunate,  struggling mass of humanity, which is  reported to be now on the south side of  the different summits, will never reach  its distination, and will either go   into  winter quarters or return   to   civilization, which, according to latest reports  seems probable.   T can   quite   realize  all the   horrors   described    by   Capt.  Lee and Superintendent Mcllree in the  White Pass,   and   fail   to   understand  'why the Government sent   the   police  in that way.   Chilcoot iB  bad enough,  God knows, but it has  the   advantage  _f being short, as by it the   journey   is  only about 25 miles from salt water  to  Lake Linderman.   I don't   know   who  recommended the White  Pass,   but   I  was informed at Dyea that no one  has  ever been through.    At any   rate,   it  was simply idiotic toimagine that 3.000  horses could be taken over a   trail   in  that country, unless   it   was   properly  built, the bad places bridged   and   soft  spots corduroyed, etc., none of which, [  understand, has been done.   It is most  important that a mail ��������� service   should  be established this winter by the Canadian Government, and I am inclined to  think, from all reports, that Jack   Dalton's trail would bo the best  route   to  open up from Chilcoot to Pelly ;   then  go down on the ice about 175 miles   to  Dawson.   The old-timers tell me  it  is  next to impossible to get down on   the  ice with dog trains, as the Yukon river  does not freeze up like the   Ottawa   or  St.    Lawrence,   but   freezes   in   great  masses nnd piles   up   in   all   sorts   of  humps.which have to be gone around or  cut throngh.' It is ' ti i e Canada woke  up out   of  her   trance   and   tried   to  realize the fact that .-.he is the possessor  of perhaps some of tbe richest shallow  placer diggings ever heard of,   At present Canada is poorly   represented   in  there.   The richest claims are   in . thc  hands of   Americans,   Scandinavians,  Dutchmen and   o_h..r. foreigners.     A  Union Jack wouid bo a novelty, the 1st  of July  is   absolutely   funeral,   while  you cannot hear * yourself   speak   lor  gunpowder on the 4th.   We are entirely dependent on   the   Americans   for  everything down to a   postage   stamp.  The boats on thc river are   owned   by  Americau corporations, and nearly   all  the valuable, trade, consisting of   mining outfits and supplies, goes to Seattle  and Juneau,  whilo   dear,  sleepy   Vic  tori i sits there basking in the sun, and  yoang Vancouver does not seem to see  the ship loads s;oing past  its  door.     I  cannot think of any more at present.  His First Hundred Dollars.  The late Majsey, who, as almost  nearly every one knows, was a very successful business man, is quoted as having said tlie hardest money to acquire  of all the wealth he. had accumulated  was the first $100. This sum has been  the experience of others, several hundred of whom have said the same at  different periods during thc past 50  years or so. Mr. Massey, like those  others, was want to add that the young  man who could get ahead that amount  possessed the qualities necessary lo  succeed. There is a lesson of great  value in the fact memtioned "by Mr.  Massey. Young men themselves know  how true it is if they have the  quality of self-examination. They  have small salaries, and after living  expenses are provided for there is little  left at the end of the week or month.  It seems such an insignificant amount  that they do not think it worth while  saving it, and so it goes in some superfluous pleasure or gratification. It is  burning a hole in their pockets until  they hurry to get rid of it. They find  it impossible to hold the saviug one  week or month until that of another  could be added to it. Mr. Massey had  this difficulty, just as hundreds and  thousands:had before him. But he  resisted the temptation, no doubt at  great sacrifice of desire, and in course  of time accumulated what to most  young men started out for themselves  on small salaries is a fortune; he was  the proud possessor of $100, all his  own, made by himself, and free from  claims of all kinds. He got with this  money his first idea of the power of  it, ar.d he learned tho lesson which he  could never forget, that it was only by  saving the pennies that the pounds accumulated. It was the lesson which  he and all others had and have to learn  to make business success possible.  THE HUNGRY PLAGUE.  There Have Been 682   Cases of   Yellow  Fever���������Number of Deaths'60.  Washington, D. C, Sept. 30.���������-The  progress of the yellow fever' epidemic  up to the close of the day as, reported  to the, office of the surgeon general of  the marine hospital service gives a  total of 682 cases and CO deaths in the  entire country, distributed by cities  and towns as follows :  Edwards, 211 cases and six deaths ;  New Orleans, 303.cases and 24 deaths ;  Biloxi, Miss., 131 cases and seven  deaths; Mobile, to Tuesday night, 53  cases and eight; Scranton, Miss., 89  cases and three deaths; Ocean Springs,  23 cases and no deaths ; Barclay, Miss.,  10 cases and four deaths ; Cairo, 111.,  four, cases;   Atlanta, Ga.,   Louisville,  Ky., Parkinson, Miss.,  and Beaumont,  10 eases each.  Thc disease will doubtless continue  to spread until it is stamped out by  the. cold weather. Hundreds of people  are leaving the infected cities for  northern ports to escape the ravages of  tbe fever.  Dr. LAHDERKIN'S IMPRESSIONS.  Thinks   the Crow's   Nest Pass   Railway  a Prime   Necessity.  The following is from a  recent issue  of the Winnipeg Tribune :  Dr. Lander-  kin, M. P. for East Grey, who has been  spending   about   two   months  in   the  west, left for home on Wednesday.   He  went  out to  the coast and  inspected  the Kootenay country and then returning spent three  weeks   in   Manitoba,  spending most of his time south of tlie  main  Jinc and in soathern Manitoba.  This is   Dr. Landerkin's first  visit  to  the west and while he came expecting  gnat    things   his   expectations   were  more  than  realized,     lie was struck  with   the great,   resources   of British  Columbia in timber, minerals and lish,  and   Manitoba's great resources   as a  farming and ranching country.   Speaking to  a reporter of thc Tribune "Dr.  Landerkiii said  it was a  pleasing fact  to note that  there  was no  oppo.-i_.iun  between  these  two great sections   of  country as their products were entirely  dissimilar and  both wanted what the  other produced.   He looics  to see  the  trade between   Manitoba and British  Columbia -teadily increase and in this  connection   thmks   tho   Crow's   Mcst  Pass railway was a vital necessity.   It  not only   opens up   a   great   mining  country but it provides a wii. in which  Canadian  produce   can   get into   the  mines to compete  with supplies from  the States.   The decision  to build the  Crow's Nest  Pass rdlway   was a wise  one, and it could not be completed too  soon.    He w.is struck, as he  found all  visitors   were,   with    the  magnificent  showing- made during  the past mouth  by   Manitoba's big wheat fields.     He  rode among them  by railway   and  by  vehicle and   it seemed utterly  impossible  to get   to the end  of them     In  every    direction   there    were   always  fields us far as thc eye. could see.   Thc  doctor wai asked jocularly   if he had  seen men going about decorated  with  revolvers in tho wild western  mining  camps.   He replied that  not only had  there been  an   entire absence of rowdyism   and   desperados,   lot he   had  found  all over the west not a single  case of a desire to overcharge,  or to  take advantage of a stranger.   Whcre-  ever he went he found the same courteous and -fair treatment.     He never  locked his room door at any  of  thc  hotels  and  never missed  th_ smallest  article.   A more law-abiding community could not be found.   Dr. Landerkin  left with a  grand impression   of the  whole west.  ^wt^>  EXT. OF  0*  tf\  >\  BABV WAS  CURED.

All  they  have to do then is  to keep on  digging  ..   and byi'the time they strike the feet of  the antipodes oil   this  terrestrial ball,  they   will surely > have   an   excellent  ���������showing and a good paystreak.  .

If, you have, a  claw-hammer coat wear it', and if not  the best coat you have will do so long  as you bring along a lady.  After all the-booming'the Tbex mine  is not' a success. Bartlett b__>s., hud a  contract with them for packing a larg.-  quantity of ore: The ore in turn  turned out unprofitably, and the Bare,  lett's tied up the concern for their  money. After going the course of the  ���������courts they pulled,out some ������900 behind. Occasionally a- streak 'of good  ore would come to the surface, but  there is too much of the worthless  to allow profitable mining all things  considered.   -:  Silver was quot'd at 5S yesterday���������a  considerable advance on the1 preceding week. ��������� This is owing to the growing sentiment in France and England  in favor of bi-metallism. Many men.  are coming to the conclusion that  enough gold can never be got out of  the ground to support the, necessary  currency of the world ; and even it* ifc  could it would be the means of driving  , hundreds of thousands of people, now  in the silver industry, out on the world  penniless.
