 YOL. 1.    ������0. 21,  SANDON, B. C., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1897.  PRICE FIVE CENTS.  A Full Report of tbe  Recent Conference' in London.  The Representatives of the Governments  That Favored Bimetallism Made  Statements-Reply Unfavorable.  London, Oct. 22.���������The correspondence in regard to the bimetallic proposals of the United States monetary  commission was issued by the British  foreign office this evening, and the following account of the negotiations was.  taken from it. At the conference held  o.t the foreign office on July 12th the  Marquis of Salisbury, the secretary of  state for India, Lord George Hamilton,  the chancellor of the exchequer, Sir  Michael Hicks-Beach, the first lord of  frho treasury, Mr. A. J. Balfour, the  United States ambassador, Colonel  John Hay, and the United States monetary commissioners, Senator Edward  0- Wolcott, of Colorado, ex-Vice-Free -  {(lent Adlal E, Stevenson of Illinois,  and Genet al Charles Jackson Payne of  Massachusetts were'present,  SENATOR WOLCOTT'S EXl'LANATIQN.  -t.  On  tVic invitation of the  premier,  Senator Wolcott explained that the object of the mission wag to ascertain, in  advance of an international conference,  if one should be called,   the views  of  the government,  and the envoys  had  determined to ascertain the  views  of  |the French, British  and German governments on  the question of reaching  .an international bimetallic agreement.  They had been to France, where  they  (reached, a   complete nnd satisfactory  understanding with the French government, and the envoys would have the  co-operation   in   this   matter  of   tho  French ambassador in London.    The  (senator then explained that the success  of the mission   depended upon the attitude Great Britain would take, and he  p'equcstedGreat Britain to agree to open  the English mints as its  contribution  to the attempt  to restore international  bimetallism,    wjtb   Fnfnce   and   the  United States co-operating together in  an attempt to that end.  The'Marquis of Salisbury asked if  "France was reapy to open her mints to  .free coinage, and the-senator replied,  -"Yes."  The premier thereupon inquired at  -what ratio France would open her  mints.  Senator Wolcott replied at 15i to 1,  pdding that the American envoys -had  ;vce.ep������ed thjs ratio. The senator then  presented the fpllowing list1 of contributions, which, among others, he suggested Great Britain might majse ���������.  First���������The opening of the Indian  mints and the repeal of the order  making the sovereign legal tender in  India,  Second���������Placing one-fifth of the bul  lion in the issue department of the  Bank of England in silver.  Third���������Eaising the legal tender limit  of silver to, say ������10, and issuing 20s  notes based on silver, which shall be  legal tender, and the retirement in  graduation or otherwise ol the 10s.  gold pieces and the substitution of  paper based on silver.  Fourth���������An agreement to coin annually so much silver, the amount to  jbe left open.  Fifth���������The opening pf the English  mints to the coinage of rupees and to  the coinage of British dollars, which  shall be full tender in the Straits Settlements and other standard colonies  and tender in the Uuited Kingdom to  the limit of silver legal tender.  Sixth ^-Colonial action and the coinage of the silver in Egypt.  Seventh���������Something having the gen-  Aral scope of the Huskizon plan.  The meeting closed and it was understood by the parties that owing to  the absence of the French ambassador,  Baron De Counsel, from the proceedings that they should be regarded as  informal, and a second conference was  held on the loth at which, in addition  to those already mentioned, the French  ambassador and M. GeofFray, the counsellor of the French embassy, were  present.  , mints to the unlimited coinage oi hiI-  ver, and that whatever views he and  his colleagues might separately hold  regarding bi-metallism, he cowld say  that they were united on this point.  Baron de Courcel said, as a personal  suggestion, that among other -contributions he thought Great Britain  should open the Indian mints and also  agree to purchase annually 10,000,000  pounds sterling of .silver for a series of  years.  Senator Wolcott accepted the proposal that the British government  should make this purchase with proper  safeguards and provisions as to the  place and manner of its use. Since  this conference the British government  have been considering the proposals  and finally made the reply handed to  the United States ambassador i yesterday.  THE REPLY OF INDIA.  The reply of the government of India  upon which Lord Salibury based his  decision, is a long document giving an  emphatic negative to the proposal to  re-open the India mints. It says: 'The  first result of the suggested measures,  if tjiey were to succeed even temporarily in their object and industry,  would be a sudden rise in exchange,  Which if the ratio 15 J to one were adopted, would be about 23d to the rupee.  Such a rise would be enough to kill  our export for a time, at least, unless  the public were convinced that the arrangement w.uld be permanent and  haye the effect intended. '  "Tho paralysis of trade and industry  would be prolonged and would be accompanied by acute individual suffering.  "None of the advantages expected  would be attained, and the oountry  would pass through a critical period,  which would -retard its progress lor  years. The position would be disastrous alike to the state,tb individuals  and to trade generally. T"ie exchange  value of tlie rupee, having risen sud?  denly, would fall equally suddenly to a  point far lower than the pr< at nt level,  probably 9d, and even lower. Suoli ;i  fall, apart from other disastrous results, would necessitate additional  taxation, to the amount of many  crores.V.  WOULD CAUSE DISASTER IN INDIA.  1(0.  8 Tunnel Proves That the  Goes Down.  IT.  Ore  The Ore is  High in Grade  No Zinc.  and   Carries  The reply then proceeds to point out  that the proposed.agreement would be  a much more serious queation for India  than for the United States and Franco,  as the whole risk of disaster from  failure would fall upon India. If the  agreement . broke down the United  States and Franco could take precautions against a depletion of their  gold reserves, but in India" the rupee,  when the collapse came, would fall  headlong and the government would  haye no remedy against fluctuation in  the exchange value of the Indian  standard of value, with the fluctuations  in the price of silver.  "Do the mines of the Sloean go  down ?" Well, rather. The fellow who  ���������nukes a business of askjjig thut- question is gradually being worked out of a  job.  About the middle'of last March it  became necessary at the Gooder ough  mine to run a long tunnel to cut the  lead at a greater depth and so. develop  the mine. No. 8 tunnel, with whioh  it was expected to tap the lead at a  distance of 480 feet, was started. Two  weeks ago, at a.distance in of 350 feet  thc lead was encountered nnd after  drifting a distance of 25 feet to the  right, last Wednesday morning the oro  came in sight in sufficient quantity to  repay the owners for all the expense  and anxiety of waiting and to warrant  a genuine jubilee in the Goodenough  camp,  The strike is an important ono as it  gor-s far toward proving that our mines  go down and that they not only hold  good in grade but improve with depth.  The tunnel cuts the lead 300 feet from  the Reco line at a depth of 203 feet,  vertical, and 335 feet on the clip, below  the lowest old workings. This gives  a total depth of 500 feet from the apex  of the vein. The ore encountered Wednesday is very high in grade. The  assay 'roin the first ore taken from No.  6 tunnel showed 240 oimcrs in silver  and the first car went GIG ounces. The  ore found Wednesday in No. S assays  260 ounces in silver and 75 per cent,  lead. At the present writing the chute  is just opening up 'n face of the drill,  but Lheir is a fine streak of ore with no  indieiitior.B of the zinc which goes with  it above.  Naturally Mr. Whittier ana Mr.  Moore, the principal owners, are very  much pleased, anal Johnny Marric, of  the Ueco, into which ground the lead  runs, is said to be greatly elated over  the strike.- Work on the drift is to be  continued until there is sufficient  ground to begin stoping oh, when the  Goodenough will be ready to begin  what is,expected to be a long winters's  shipping record ���������Kootenapian.  wonderful range at her command.  There remains one other performer  woithy of mention. A phenomenal  juvenile who simply captured his audience with "Comicalities," is Master  "Sammy" Johnson. Such precocity,  audi marvellous stlf-possession, such  appreciation of the humor lie tries to  convey to his hearers is seldom seen.-  To say that his contribution was all too  short is to express the opinion of nine-  tenths of the audience, and if noting  else last evening betrayed llisg Mar-  rack's possession of good judgement as  an entertainer, her inclusion of little  Sammy's portrayal of the negro comedian would be sufficient of itself.

THE J?OSmon OF FKAHCE.  The Fr&nch ambassador was then invited to declare the position of the  French government, and he said France  was ready to re-open her mints to the  coinage'of silver if the commercial  nations adopted the same course, and  he advocated at length the ratio of 15J  to 1., He explained that France would  not consider the re-opening of the  mints of India alone as being a sufficient gaurantee to permit the French  government to re-open the French  mints to the free coinage of silver.

Meeting adjourned to second Tuesday in November.  Sixteen engineers started from Spokane last week to survey a railway  line from Kootenay Lake to Trout  Lake.:������* D. C. Corlin.  At the next session of parliament E.  T. Gait, of the Lethbridge colliery in  Alberta, will apply for a charter to  build a railroad from Arrowhead to  Kootenay Lake. The road will most  likely be built next year.  Sloean City News :���������J. R. Cameron,  pf pandop, president and manager of  the Cameronian mine on the first north  fork of Lemon creek, was in the city  the ."ore part of the week, and in company with G. D. B. Turner, formerly  superintendent of the Wakefield mine,  near Silverton, visited the property.  The object of the visit was to inspect  the mine and look after the I rail, which  is being built from the propeity to  connect with the Exchange trail.  The Cameronian was located about  two vears ago and work to the extent  of an 80 foot tunnel has been done on  the property. Bi5t owing to the difficulty in building a trail it was impossible to-make any shipments. But as  soon as thc trail is finished the 100  tons of ore which are now on the dump  will be packed out and shipped.  Mr. Turner was greatly pleased with  the looks of the property, in fact he  was simply surprised, saying that lie  had never before believed that there  was such a proposition in this section  of the country. When it is taken into  consideration that 100 tons nf ore have  been taken out ofJlan 80 foot tunnel,  ore that will run from $200 to $4B0 to  the ton, the true value of the property  can be estimated.  The mine will be worked all winter,  and next spring a trail will be built  down the first north fork to connect  ���������with the Lemon creek trail, after which  all ore from the mine will be.taken! out  by that route.  The Idaho group and the Wonderful  are to be connected by trail.  The Fidelity mine near Sloean City  shipped two cars of ore to the Nelson  smelter this week.  The Queen Bess is quite a shipper  theso times, and, the new manager is  pushing stoping ah sad rapidly.  There are a number of men working  ou thoArgo at present, and they hope  to ihip something promising at an  ef.Wyday.  The manager of the Ajax says they  are shipping right arong, Irnd find pros-  Hpects brightening as work progresses.  He ie confident the Ajax will yet be a  lirge shipper.  Mr. Smith says the Miners are working away at the Selkirk and expect to  strike the main lead in a very short  time. This mine will ship considerable when rawhiding opens.  Tee Last Chance does not appear to  be satisfied with its hugestrike'of some  weeks ago ; the ledge has now widened  out to five feet of clean ore. This mine  was sold for $225,000 a few weeks ago  and for ������325 three years ago.  Andreen and Stewart, owners of the  Bunker Hill and Sullivan, on Canyon  creek, Trout Lake, will put in the winter developing their property. They  have started a shaft, which is now  down about 10 feet, showing the vein  to be about three feet in width, carrying a silver lead ore with an average  assay of 171 oz. silver and 78J per cent,  lead.  1 While there they became interested in  an hydraulic proposition and within a'  few months they will ship in machin-,  ery for opening up on a large scale.  They are greatly impressed with the  section as a hydraulic country and  with the Cariboo mine they were more  than pleased. The enormous plant  and perfect arrangements for work  were 6poken of and the( management  of Mr. Hobson was highly commended.  Wasking is only done now about eight  or ten hours a week, tlie reservoir being allowed about four days te fill and  t len the mine started and run for a  few hours. A washup will give enough  yet to make between $150,000 and $100,  000 for the season and it is said to be  the smallest rain and snow fall and  consequently the least water known in  the history of mining around thc Forks.,  The output Mr. Policys considers, is  very satisfactory.  A Promising Little Town  on Sloean Lake.  Sitnated  TWENTY-EIGHT PERISHED.  An Awful   Accident on the   New   York  Central Railway.  SOME  SWEET SOGERS.  Miss Marrack and Her Pupils Delight a  Victoria Audience.  The following from thc Victoria Colonist has reference to the concert  company that will appear here Oct. 13,  14 and 15 ;  "It has often been said that Victoria  docs  not possess a  good instructor in  vocal music, but the concert given last  evening in  Institute  hall   under  the  patronage of the   Lieutenant-Governor  and   Mro. Dewdncy   must  have   convinced those who had the goed fortune  to be present that   Miss Marrack possesses those qualities   which are  characteristic of the successful teacher.   Of  Miss Marrick's   singing   it   would be  superfluous   to say anything.   A finished artiste, possessed of n  phenomenal contralto voice,  her rendering of  the only solo given  by her during  thc  evening,   aad for which  she  selected  the ever popular  "Annie Laurie," won  thc hearts of her hearers.   In her duet  with   Mrs. Harry W.itson,   Aris?   Mar-  rack's voice  was heard  to even  bettor  advantage, and coupled   with  the evidences of her ability as a teacher, presented  by  those   who   have received  their vocal training under her tuition,  and   who, took part   in  the   concert,  proves beyond doubt that the lady/has  the necessary   qualifications  to place  her in the very front rank ofher profession. '  The solos of Mrs. Harry Watson  were all excellent. A favorite with  Victoria audiences, this lady can always count upon a hearty welcome,  but it is doubtful whether her voice  has ever been heard to better advantage. Her rendition of Donizetti's "O  luce de quest anima" was finished and  gave her ari opportunity to prove the  Garrison, N. Y., Oct. 25���������The gray  dawn, twenty-four hours ' after the  frightful happening of yesterday on  the New York Central railway, broke  on a scene of givater litter and pro-  pertj destruction'than yesterday's and  last night's torchlight displayed.  There were gangs of wreckers, who  were relieved this morning by fresh  ones. When the reckers brought the  tackle on the sleeping car Glenalpin  to draw her up there was much excitement and apeculat:on as it was believe-  ed there must be some bodies in this  car, which was most deeply submerged of the lot. ��������� When the car had  been placed on a scow and the water  run out, the searching party went  through it and to the surprise to the  railroad officials not a body was discovered. Some ourious things were  foand, however, which tends to make  the escape of the passengers seem  almost miraculous. It is believed that  all in this car escaped, and as there  were a full score of handbags and  satchels in the car, there may have  been that number of passengers.  Thc terrible accident that led to the  above condition of affairs occurred on  the New York Central that left Buffalo on Saturday morning, and it was  about dawn when it reached tkc scene  of disaster. The train plunged into  thc Hudson river, and 2S men, women  and children wen- hurled into eternity.  Thc total cargo of human freight consisted of something over 100 people.  Manager Callahan was down from  the American Boy, near Cody, on Tuesday, and is in a high frame of mind  about the prwspects of that mine. He  say's they have met with no wonderful  strike, but the quality and quantity of  their ore is improving every day.  They will have a handsome , quantity  ready for rawhiding and shipping the  first snowfall.  A 40-foot tunnel has been driven on  the Idaho claim on Copper creek, near  Golden. The vein is three feet wide  with four to six inches of iron carbonates. An assay obtained last year  gave a return of $212 to the. ton, . hut  no assays have been made yet this  season. , On the Alaska an open cut  has been made and a tunnel run for  'seventy-five feet.  At the annual meeting of the Noble  Five mine near Cody on the 6th it was  decided to raise $150,000 to pay debts  and further development work on .the  mine. Since then it has shut down  pending we presume the raining of  this money. This mine is generally  supposed to possess a large amount of  good mineral, and has a splendid  plant. It ought to make successful  headway.  J. Ticrney, who has been doing the  development work for the Channe Mining Co., on the Centaur claim on Fifteen-Mile creek in the Fort Steele district, has abandoned the work in the  shaft and started on a big hlowout. He  drifted for about fifteen feet along the  ledge. He then started a tunnel about  thirty feet lower and has driven thirty  feet. He expects to strike the led������e  shortly'. He considers the property  looks promising.  A. B. Grace, in an interview with the  Fort Steele Prospector, says that the  ofTcr 51,000,000 for the North Star mine  in that distrct is too small to be even  considered. Continuing, Mr. Grace  said': Something over a year ago the  report was circulated that the mine  was for sale and 1 know it to be a fact  that Chisholm Bros., of Montana,wired  D.D.Mann, principal owiur of thc  mine, offering !?2,000,000 for the property. He promptly wired back that  the price, was ������2,5000,000. Negotiations ceased at that point. The mine is  not practically for s-ilc at all, its owners  being satisfied that they have a property worth keeping.  This town is feeling its share of the  dull times prevailing in the countrj*',  and the shutting down of the Noble  Five mine, throwing about 100 men  out of work, but temporarity, it is to  be hoped, is not helping the matter  any. The company hold a meeting today at which the future operations of  the mine may be decided on.  Mr. Black is now managing the saw  mill which has some 35 men at work  all'told.  ,Mr. Levi is at it rebuilding on his  old favorite site. Some think it would  be better to defer operations pending  the turn of the tide, but Mr. Levi is  very popular with all classes, which  will help him considerably.  Mr. Shepherd has strong Lopes that  his mine, thc Ava, will turn out well.  He is at present working on a cross  cut and hopes to strike a main lead.  A sample taken out some time ago  assayed 100 oz silver and 70 per cent,  lead and since then the ore taken out  has much improved.  Mr. Smillcy, the barber, has removed  to Sandon, and is now engaged in  Spencer's shop.    ii���������    McPhee Acquitted by the Jury.  J. M. McPhee, the man charged with  forging the Keen petition at Kaslo is  once more a free man, the verdict of  thc jury being "hot guilty."  The case occupied the greater part  of two days and much expert testimony was introduced. The line of defense was that the petition could have  been forged by anybody and that the  prosecution had failed to fix the responsibility on the defendant. The  jury was out about three-quarters of an  hour.  CHURCH   DLRECTOKY.  METH9BI8T    CHURCH.  Services every Sabbath at 11 a. m.  and 7.15 p. m. Prayer meeting every  Thursday evening at 7.45.

Schnitzlein���������On the 19th inst.; the  wife of Mr. Schnitzlein, of a daughter.  A strike has been made on the Athabasca property on Toad mountain  which promises to be au important  one. About a month ago some float  was discovered which gave assays of  $300 and over. A number of men were  at once put to work to locate thc ledge  and last Saturday they found it about  350 feet above the present workings.  At the place where it was opened it  showed a width of IS inches but it is  thought to be wider in places as some  of the float showed a width of 24 indies. The new ledge, runs at right  anglas to the present one and the company is now stripping it for the purpose of following it and finding the  contact with the old lead. The ore is  very similar to that taken from the  old ledge and carries considerabla free  gold. No assay has yet been taken  from the ledge-  C. G. Polleys and Wm.

The followng is  ments oyer the K.  for the week ending Oct  MINE:  Ruth;   Sloean Star   Wonderful   a list of ore ship-  fe S.  from Sandon  28:  TONS   560   135    90   ~^&5-  Rome was not built in a day ; it was  once a smaller place than Rosebery is  to-day, and yet it grew to be a wonderful city. No one expects Rosebery to  become a Rome, yet it has promising  features that cannot fail to make it at  an early day a plnce of considerable  importance. It is at the head of Sloean lake and lias one of the best harbors on the inland waters. From  plans the C. P. R. are carrying out, it  is to be one of the most important  points in their shipping system to and  from the South Kootenay country. The  steam barge they are now building on  the dry dock at this place, and  which by the way is the most important dry clock on the Kootenay. water  system, which will have a capacity for  eight     cars a   full     train is   . in  indication the   freight now   going   to  and from  the   Rossland   country   via  Arrow lakes is. to come this way.   The  heavy expenditure they are making at  Sloean City at the foot of the lake   20  miles distant goes to show this is to be  a main link system.   As the company  will also put a train   on  their   Nelson  track to meet the arrival of   the   Fort  Sheppard .trains from Spokane, at that  point, it is , quite   evident   they have  their eye on the passenger travel now  over the K. and S. via Kaslo. '-"By putting on an evening   train   from   Rosebery to Sandon, passengers   from   Spokane   far   Sandon   and   intermediate  points will reach their destination the  day they start, saving a day   in   time.  Such an arrangement would secure a big  slice of the passenger traffic, which   is-  doubtless what the C. P. R. after,   and  aid the growth of Rosebery very materially.   The town is most prettily situated with the beautiful Sloean in front  and a coast line of about a mile and   a  half in length, divided in   the   middle  by the Gulf of Wilson creek���������a stream   -  that higher up   possesses ample power  for electric light and all other uses ; for   ���������  which it might be required.     Its -.-fall  too gives scope for as fine a water  system as can be desired and   an   ample  supply of the very purest water for   all  domestic purposes.  The townsite is now laid out in business and residental olocks, the former  running east from the C. P. R. depot  and the latter for the most part south  of the river where the soil is quite  arable and can readily be used for  gardens and grounds to beautify homes  and residences-  Already the ground is secured for an  immense ore sampler, and a cold storage for the Calgary Brewing company  who will make this their head quarters  for their Kootenay trade. Many other  industries are projected of which we  will give outlines as soon as plans for  their erection are fully matured.  At the present one general store and  one hotel are the only institutions of  the place bul judging from the busy  life of these there is already������room for  more of their classes. It is an every  day occurrence to sec 60 or 70 people  take meals at the very excellent hotel  iiojv* in operation.  So far there are several very promising mining prospects discovered, and  it remains for the future to say what  the hills may develop in a mining way.  Even if the samples should not prove  of the higest grade, the cost of delivery  at the railway will be very light.  The beauty of the place is its superior natural advantages for residences  and the townsite company are offering  great inducements to those who are  prepared to buy and build.  Mr. Harris'  Tunnel Scheme.  NO ROOM FOR S.\LT RHEUM.  Salt Rheum,erysipelas, tetter, rashes,  shingles, scurf, etc., cannot exist where  Burdock Blood Bitters is used. Here  is thc proof : I <vas so bad with salt  rheum that my finger nails came off.  B. B. B. cured me completely and I  have had no return of the disease dur-  the past three years. Mrs. Jas. Sanders.  Emerson, Man.  Engineers and mining men generally  agree that the projected t.unnel of Mr.  J. M. Harris to tap all the mines in  the north hill is one of the most advanced ideas of the age in mining. It  would cost anywhero from half to  three quarters of a million dollars, but  it would, of course, expose everything  in the hill to practical mining. If Mr.  If. can get sufficient outside capital interested, he will be doing a great deal  towards.making Sandon the greatest  mining camp in the world, for it is  generally believed this hill is full of  minerals.  "THEY SUIT ME EXACTLY."  "I had dyspepsia and stomach trouble  for the pass two years," says Miss  Ellen Whalen, Niagara Falls, and took  various remedies in search for a cure.  None of them suited my case like  L-ixa-Liver Pills. They suited me  exactly, and removed the troubles  promptly and effectually. I willingly  recommend them to all who suffer  as I did."

Mr.   Clouston  may ' be   a first-class' man   to   make  ,.    money for the .bank of Montreal;  but  his conceptions  are certainly too narrow to properly aid the   resources  of  Canada.    All of our paper circulation  is based oh a metal   basis.,, In other  ,.    words a bank bill is, only a promise to  pay gold or silver when asked for, and  as there is but little better than twenty  millions  of gold   and   silver  coin   in  "   Canada,   if harrowed down   to   Mr,  Ciouston's ��������� own   theory,  there  is but  $4.00   per head of the population   in  Canada,   to   do the   business,,'of.'. the  ,7. country,   and develop our. latent   resources.    As   commercial, business' is  run,-that may to a  reasonably fair extent enable   commercial-concerns with  a handsome surplus to do. a moderate  business  satisfactorily to. themselves,;  - but what about the development of the  resources of this great country?  '- Canada  has ari area; equal   to that  of the United States, and resources, if  ./developed, capable of supporting at a  moderate   estimate   two ..hundred millions   of  people.-      Now what is  to  bring   these   people- here   and supply  "..'". them with the means   when' here   of  opening up  the country,   if Mr. Ciouston's theory is correct?, '-  In  Manitoba   and'trf*e   Territories  -��������� there, are millions of. as fine' agricultural lands as there   are under the sun,'  and   plenty  of people   in   the  world,  ��������� "'- ready to work them, if:they only   had  i the means of doing it.    There  are in  British Columbia thousands of as good  mines   lying untouched  as the   world  ..7  ever ' saw,   ah   abundance of  timber  ,-,.. rotting m the sun   that is required   for  industries in the old countries, and our  'western rivers teeming with fish to feed  v the.hungry millions in the east, and all  .' lying, untouched ,'for. the want of capital to bring  them   to account.    Mr.  Clouston says twenty millions of metal  coin-are ample for this.  It is not, of course, improbable,and  which may be the explanation for Mr.  Ciouston's  narrow spectacles,  that as  commercial usuages   stand,   if money  was more plentiful more inexperienced  and unqualified men - would rush  into  commercial  matters   to increase   the  list, of failures and disasters ; but there  is   a   way. of__ meeting   this.      Does  the experience  of producers   and importers count for anything ?    Is it not  to be expected  that  Boards of Trade  should exercise some serviceable functions?    And   withal   are,' our  parliaments no ser *ice in regulating matters  '.���������''' of this   character?      There   is,   as   a  matter of fact,   with, an improvement  in business   and a loosening of money  matters,  too great-a tendency  to engage in purely mercantile matters; but  the bodies   we   have  named; should  hav: some control over this and direct  the increase into more extended industrial .channels.     The force of common  sense   repeats,    from   experience. and  otherwise, there is  not money enough  in , Canada   to   bring its   natural   resources to the front, as they should be  brought.    Every country in the world  with   the   comparative   resources   of  Canada" has a larger  per capita coinage,  but this counts   for nothing  with  ;men in position   who have   selfish motives to serve.  Mr. Clouston, for . reasons of this  kind, is opposed to opening mints, in  Canada, he knows the increase of coin  diminishes the power of banks to do  what he. has a' holy horror of in the  hands of the masses���������to run money-  making institutions on mere promises  to pay. Every man, who from'selfish,  motive's is opposed to the,fullest development of the country is opposed to  mints, and there is no reason, therefore, that Mr. Clouston should stand  as a living exception to men of his  class.   -  , What the masses are in favor of  and for natural reasons, is not thai  monetary institutions should continue-  on in their natural groove making  money out of the force of.circu'm-  . stances, but that hidden resources  should be brought to light by the'ein!  ployment of labor at..' remunerative  wages; and this irFCanada. where it  [son al! hands possible, can only be  done by an increase in our circulating  When people cry "Hard Times" in  inland-places, that have for the most  part-to depend on their own: resource's  3nd' immediate surrouudings for business, they are generally responsible  for the cause themselves.

The Situation at Dawson,  Dr. Compton,   of  Victoria, .has   received a letter from his brother, who is  or. his way  to the Klondyke,  dated at  Fort Yukon,  on   September 11th.     T.  Compton left on the steamer Portland  in July last, and went up  the river  on  the   steamer Hamilton,  which   vessel  was unable to get any further up  than  Fort Yukon, where  Air. Compton  and  his partner left her.   .The other   passengers all .wmit back on her.   He says  that Ihe news already  sent down concerning the impending famine, which,  like a   Datnascan sword,   hangs  over  the people of Dawson, has not been in.  any- way   exaggerated.     The   Alaska  Commercial Company  early  in September made an attempt'to get up. with  thc smallest   river steamers  to  warn  thepeoplc of Dawson  that they  must  fly to where   there  was food,  for none  could be brought to them. Thesteamer  however,  was unable   to got'.through'  tin:   Devil's Teeth rapids,   and  one of  thc officials  of the company   wont up  in   a canoe with   six  Indians  to warn  the. people of  the danger.     He says  that game  is plentiful at  Fort Yukon;  The day prior to writing   he shot  five  geese, seven ducks  and   saw  innumerable moose tracks.

'The Winnipeg Free   Press', has .the  following to say in an interview  with  Mr. W; R. Ross, of Fort Steele :    "This  year "tins been the "prospectors' yp.a>,"  and tho country has been overrun with  nrospectors from all parts of the world,  and the unanimous verdict ol all is that  the 'Bast Kootenay givs   great'-r promise, from its' surface indications, than  any:other part of Br'tish Columbia that  his'yet been   explored.     In the   Fort  Steele district there are few "developed  mines on account of the   expense   of  transportation   to 'the   smelters,   but  amongst,these are the North  Star and'  St, Eugene.   The North   Star   is. con-  sid'ered<jl>y, competent experts   to   con;  lain the greatest body of galena   that  has yet been uncovered in imy.part  of  British Columbia.   The magnitude of  the eonl'beds near the  Elk   river',   in  lhe, Crow's Nest Puss, is. kngwn to 'all,  and preparatory   work   is   now   being  done on them, with a view   to   having  tlien^ operated at the earliest   possible  moment'; and there is good authority  for the statement'that the work of construction of forty   miles   into 'British  Columbia,.fro'rii������������������ the   present   western  termuiiis of the railroad,'',will; be   proceeded with at. owce.    In ��������� that   event  theriilroad should reach the Kootenay  river during next summer.   The'. Wild  Horso creek, which- empties into   the  Kootenay at Fort Steele, was"thc scone  in 1S64 of a placer excitement ..similar  to tliat now taking place in   the  Klondyke..   a'i'id lit  is   generally  conceded  that, from $24,000,000, to   ������30,000   were  taken out of the surface gravel of  four  miles of the' creek',;  without' reaching  the   bedrock.     There, are  two   large  companies operating the banks"of .the  creek by hydraulic methods'  and   are  said   to   be '���������- making    good    returns.  Wherever the bedrock has .boon   prospected 'good-pay has heon  found ;   and  the samejhay be   saitl   of  iit. least   a  dozen small creeks   which .ultimately  find their way into  tlie  Kootenay,   so  that the capit.-.lift who  wishes, to   invest his money .in'remunerative placer  propositions,need not go as far   as.'..the  Klondyke        ,. -   '   ,-��������� : >��������� ��������� '  Sir. Ross has recently been. ap-  1 ointed local,tigen'.'at Fort.Steele. ..for  the Kootenay Valleys Co. This company is an English one, which received  .from the provincial government a  grant of some thirty thousand acres'of  land in the Kootenay valley in return  for having completed certain works of  publiv importance. On accouot of  lack of railway facilities the company  lias never'placed these lands on the  market, but intends to do so in thc  near future, at prices and terms to suit  desirable purchasers. ...'At the. pr sent  time the prices of farm produce is  about as low as they have ever been,  and when IVIr. Ross left Fort Steele  oats 'were.selling at ,3c ner lb.j.-'miirsh  hay $30 per ton ; timothy from S4U to  $50 ;' potatoes ������1.50 per bnshel; butter  45c per lb., and eggs and other farm  produce in proportion. The average  crop of' oats'this year has been about  55 bushels per acre, weighing about 45  pounds to the bushel. The district,  Mr. Ross says, also offers advantages  as a fruit raising country, as-apples,  pears, plums, strawberries, etc., grow  with very little care. On one farm the  lady of the house plucked four tons ol  strawberries-in June, and the. other  day the vines were in bloom for the  second crop in one summer.  The town of Fort Steele is now a  thriving place, containing about 700  people, and is the government seat, for  the' southern part. ol':East Kootenay,  as well as the head of river navigation  on Kootenay river and is bound to  make substantial progress next year.  The completion of the railway to the  Kootenay next summer will naturally  cause other towns to spring up in the  district, and at present the proposed  town of Cranbrook, which will be a  divisional point on the railway and  about twelve miles from Fort Steele, is  causing a.great deal of attention to be  directed toward' it on account of its  central position and the fact, that the  railway company owns one-half of the  town and is assisting to place it upon  the market.

The Sandon curlers rinding the old  rink would be too small for their pur  pose, with a portion of it detached and  occupied with Mr. Harris' heating  aparatus, have commenced the erection of a new and commodious one  near McLachlan's planing mill. It  will be up  to date, in all requirements.  E. Wallace, general manager of the  Ontario Gold Fields company, who has  just returned on Saturday from a trip  through British Columbia says the Sloean district will produce ������9,000,000  worth of ore this year and that, the  proypects are that next year this  amouunt will be doubled.���������Montreal  Star.  Strangers .in our city the past week,  unaccustomed to mining camps, might  think th'ey, had landed on a field of  battle with a host of artillery besieging the town from the south. It was  only lines of blasts set off at intervals  on tie new water flume, but considerable havoc was created among the  stumj-s and rocks along the line.  A Finlander with a very northern  name was jerked up by the Beak yesterday for cutting -ind slashing a countryman with a knife. Some days before he said he would do it, and being  a man of veracity and reliability he  carried out his word. This is the  method of showing displeasure in Finland; but the Beak is not disposed to  allow it here..  The Orangemen of Sandon are going  to celebrate the evening of Guido  Fawkes' Day (Friday next) with a  mixed entertainment consisting of  singing, speeches and dancing, with a  supper intermediate.-tickets 31.00.. A  great (leal of trouble is gone into to  make the occasion a most enjoyable  one. Don't forget the date whatever  else you forget. .'.  . As has been previously announced  Miss Francis World, soloist, and Miss  LaDcll, elocutionist, are to appear in  the Virginia hall this Saturday evening. The press of'Canada ure a unit in  their expressions that these ladies  have no superiors and but few equals  is their respective parts, in the wide  world. This is saying much but none  too much for the truth.  Mr. Harris has a force of men at  work putting in the heating apparatus  in his several blocks in town. The  boiler, a massive one, was made at the  Atlas Works Indianapolis, and is now  being embedod in its 1. rick support in  the rink. From it pipes are run to the  several buildings. The rest of the  riiik space is being levelled and fitted  up for the curlers^ skaters, etc. of the  town.     . ,      !  Last Monday evening the "Literary  Society" of the Epworth League, had  a very interesting meeting, each member contributing something original to  the programme, and the addresses, poetry, essays and songs given show that  there is considerable talent in our  . midst. Some ol the ladies materially  improved the programme by serving  cake and coffee at the close. A debate  will take place next Monday evening.
