Dubois of Idaho.    ��� - '-.'- -v  I am pleased that the democracy of  Illinois will express itself diiectly en  the silver question. I wish the republicans would do the same; -From  my observation the silver advocates  will carry the democratic state con  vent ion, and if the republicans ad here  to the gold standard the demoorates  will carry tlie stale.  It is very evident to the most casual  aud   indifferent   observer   that the  cause of silver  is  gaining ground  every   hour    This is appearant in  (Ttrmany, England and all the gold-  standard countries of Europe as well  as in the United States.    The most  rapid progress and the crystallization  of sentiment is more marked in the  ;s sates, to be sure.  . The reasons of the  change of sentiment are easily understood.   -Distress and  hard times are  general throu/hou'; tlie world   There  is a prevailing opinion among producers and wage earners that the era.  pression in all lines of trade has been  brought about by the adoption of the  gold standard by the leading nations  of the world. Nothing is of stable  value now save gold mines and gold  money.- There are not many of the  former, and the owners of gold money  as a rule do not live in the United  States.  '      THE.ARPRECIATION OF GOLD.  The great majority of the people of  this country understand, I think, that  with gold, as the sole standard of  money that metal is appreciated, and  all things wWeh it measures in value  are depreciated. It is boyish and unworthy of men who undertake to  direct the public sentiment to say that  silver has not been demonetized. To  sav that silver is still in use and in  large quantities in the United States  and that it is maintained on a parity,  with gold is a begging of the entire  monetary question, which is entirely  unworthy of some distinguished  gentlemen who have lately expressed  themselves. There must be basic  money. On this other moneys rest.  There must be a money of ultimate,  redemption in order to ensure absolutely safe currency. It is a serious  question.", whether there^is.or can be  enough 'of both gold and silver to  supply this basic money. When both  were used, prior to 1873, they seemed  to answer the purpose and remained  at a ratio of about 15�� ounces of silver  to 1 of gold. The prices of labor, of  wheat, cotton, corn and other products, were maintained.  When silver (which comprised one-  half of the basic money) was demonetized, when it was no longer  recognized as the equal of gold at  the mints, but was made a commodity the:-sanie'.as:coffee, itfell in value  she is compelled to. I have no hopes  of any international agreement until  after this government adopts free  coinage. England and the other  great nations of Europe will then be  campelled to join us or lose their commercial supremacy.  The minute the United States  adopts free coinage at the ra'jio 15�� or  16 to 1 the price of silver will be  regulated throughout the world. No  one who has given the subject serious  thought or who has any regard for  his reputation as a student of finance  attempts to argue any longer that the  restoration of silver by the United  States acting indcpeiinently would  cause the country to be flooded with  siluer from foreign nations. This  country could not be a "dumping  ground" for silver for the reason  that there is no nation which does not  absolutely need all the silver which  it has. There is no loose silver anywhere to come here. There will be  no object in foreign countries sending  silver here, even if they had it to  spare, because it would be worth as  much, in each of the foreign countries  as here and they 'vould lose by send  ing it here.what the, -cost -of transportation iwciuld amount to.  IF GOLD LEAVES  THE COUNTRY.  Some claim that with free coinage  all tha gold would leave this country.  What if it does ? Where will it go  to.?.. Admit for the sake of argument  that it will go to England. The  volume of the money in England will  increase to that extent, with the result that the price of our products  which we sell to England will be enhanced and England will lind it im-  possible to retain the gold:  It has been demonstrated clearly  as compared wi{ih gold, until now it that gold can hot be retained in this  is as about 32 ounces,, of silver to 1  country under, the present condition  ounce of gold. The significant fact,  however, that wheat and corn and  cotton and the value of all other pro  ducts, as well as the price of labor,  has fallen with silver is what creates  the great demand for the restoration  of silver as basic money.        :  MAKING THE INITIATIVE.  oi iallinT prices and  Hjuent de-  I have the greatest respect for many!  of the able silver advocates in the  United States who do not see their  way clear to unlimited coinage by  our country acting alone. I myself  cannot see how we are to secure  bimetallism'.unless the United States  takes the initiative. England is a  creditor nation. The gold standard  makes money scarce and dear. . This  is to the advantage of England, and  she will not consent to the addition of  of affairs. The government is abso-  iutely at the mercy- of any syndicate  of rich bankers who desire to take it  out of the treasury. , Allthey have to  do is to present the various forms of  currency for redemption and our gold  reserve-.bf ^00,000,000 melts away.  The experience in this direction has  | been so recent that every one can recall it. The government has issued  over |1C0,0C0, COO of new'-"bonds, bearing '.. interest in its desperate effort to  PROGRAMME OF THE SILVER MEN.  - The silver men in the country are  very much in earnest. They number  a great majority of the people, and  will, I think, find a way to make  their demands effective.  It looks to me as though both of the  great national parties would declare  for silver in 1890. In my judgment  no party can win which' endeavors to  keep our government fastened to the  single gold standard. If both of the  the leading national parties should be  controlled by the, gold standard advocates, neither of them could elect  their candidate. An advocate of  silver would then be nominated either  in the electorial college or by a  separate national convention and  election.  MINING NOTES,  Happenings    of   Interest  Treasure Vaults.  Among-  tlie  The Massut at Trail creek has been  sold for $8,000. -  ��  The Columbia at Rossland will put  in an air compressor this month. ..  \ Nearly 150 men are prospecting the  country at the foot of Slocan lake.

Ev.ward Atkinson d iscusses a  very, absorbing- .; question,:. :; '' Who  demonetized the cow?" It was un;  questionabh^ owing* to that early demonetization, the dire effect of which  ran down through, the centuries and  culminated in 1873,  that most of- our  ��� financial ills are chargeable, and not  to the much-denounced. act of some  twenty-two years ago.

New Denver has the first school in  the Slocan, and "before long many  .families will take advantage of it,  and come to a town that is unsurpassed for beauty in America.  Many people in Victoria and Vancouver now know of the Kootenay  country, and we would not be surprised to see many of them come in  here and get richer than they are at  present.  On Saturday last an interesting,  game of Basedall was played upon  the diamond here between the Sandon  and New Denver teams. The home  team has of late met with continued  success so that a defeat from the Sandon nine was /hardly: anticipated.  However the rising city of the summits produced a team which did it the  credit of carrying home a decisive  victory. The visiting pitcher was the  one who gave our boys the most  distress. The field play on both sides  was vigorous and well sustained. It  is but due to say that the home battery was not complete owing to the  absence of one  of the catchers, and  the  boys here are anticipating  an  early   opportunity   of   turning   the  tables.    The score stood 11 to 30 in  favor of Sandon.  In hono** of the visitors the band  paraded in the evening and the entertainment of the day,, was closed  with a grand ball which was graced  also with the presence of visitors of  the fair sex from neighboring towns.  you've gone, you won't make more  than one volume.

Returning  NAKUSP  Scientific men have discovered after  7-^ears of research that no man can  successfully play joker unless he is a  liar. This country is full of George  Washington's to whom this information may prove valuable.  .. The output of gold in the entire  world during 1894 amounted to.f 176, -  000,003. That is a vast amount of  money, and if we possessed it we  would build a log house tins '''winter,  and hire a man to saw the wood.  Prospectors have been so eager to  possess claims around Rossland this  summer that if a piece of iron would  show up any where it would be staked  and duly recorded. "This is good for  the Government, but a waste, of time  on the part of many prospectors.  ;   A hospital has been established in  New Denyer. The hisiiory of mines  and mountains is always one more or  less of blood, and an institution of this  kind is of great benefit to all men  who ply their occupations amid dangerous surroundings. We trust that  a liberal patronage wili.be extended  to it, by every miner in tlie Slocan,  Post O.'Hce.  On Monday last the Metropolitan  post office was removed from the store  of Bourne Bros, to the new quarters  prepared for it by Captain Hold en  adjoining his drug store. These  quarters are suitable and well arranged. No doubt the genial Captain will  make a model postmaster, and the  efficient service of the past will be  continued.  "There is one unpleasant feature  about d y ing." said Talleyrand ; ' 'one  can not read one's obituaries. 1  should like very much to read my  obituaries." "So should I," returned  Bonaparte,, dryly ; "hurry up and  die, will you ?"  "I think I shall write my autobiography," Fouche said one morning  to the emperor. "I wouldn't if I were  you, said Napoleon'; \ ''you; know  yourself too well, and if you told tlie  truth it. would ruin your reputation."  Napoleon was superstitious, and  used to /enjoy telling his fortune  with the cards. At one time he drew  three cards from .the pack; two of  them were two spots, and one of them  was a king. "Humph !"; he said ;  "I seem ,to be raising the duce,  rather than a dynasty, by two to one."  At St. Helena, Napbleon was asked  what he would have done had he  defeated   Wellington   at   Waterloo.  "I should have smiled," replied the  fallen emperor.  A stout little boy having been presented to the enrperor, Napoleon took  him on. his knee, "what are your  names ?". . '' Paul," said the boy.  '' And the other ?" .' 'I have no other,'-  said the boy. "What? Only one  name for both of you ? asked Napoleon. "I'm only one boy," returned the lad. "Why, you surprise,  me," said the emperor, with a laugh ;  "you are so heavy I thought you  were twins."  " I really never loved but one woman, said Bona parte. " What cried  Bourrienne. .with" a doubtful smile.  "At one time," returned the emperor.  " Prussia shall never wear your  collar!" cried the Prussian king. ������". "It  will feel my cuffs, however,"retorted  Bonaparte; "and, what will be more  ridiculous, it will get them in the  neck."  " What is the matter, Bourrienne ?"  asked Napoleon of his secretary one  morning ;"  ''you look blue."   ,';T am  blue,   sire,"   returned   Bourrienne;!  ���'' I've written you up,  and as far as l  Sundays at 9 o'clock  Tuesdays at     "  Thursdays at   ������  Fridays "  HIRER FORKS  Mondays at 11 o'clock  Wedne-'days at      "  Thursdays at "  Saturdays "  steamer Nelson for Kaslo and all Kootenay lake  points  Passengers for Kettle River and Boundary  Creek connect at Marcus with stage on Mondays  and Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays,,  Passengers for Trail Creek mines connect at  North]K>rL wi ih  stage daily.

THREE FORKS.  SILVERTON  THE LARGEST RIVER;  Canadian- Geologist Tell of an Enormous  <��� Pre-Glacial River.    <  The largest riverof anv age of  which there is any evidence in the  world, according to a remarkable  geological discovery 'reported to the  Royal'Society-of Canada, at its late  meeting at Ottawa." was a great pre-  giacial river in northern Canada.  Dr. Robert Bell, !! who; produced  scientific evidence of the correctness  of his discovery, pointing ou- that it  was generally admitted by geologists  that the continent of North America,  immediately before the glacial period,  stood at a much higher elevation than  at the present time, amounting to,  perhaps, between two and three  thousand feet. The inevitable result  of tins must hive been to change the  river systems from what..' they now  are, and to create iii the north a  gigantic river, draining an area of  over one-third of the entire continent  of North America and forming a  a drainage basin seven times as large  as that of the Si Lawrence.    ,  The central portion of the great  river was in the middle of what is  now Hudson Bay, as proved by the  existing depressions of land in the  the north of Canada and the great  depth of the centre of Hudson Bay.  Its lower part discharged through  what is now Hudson Straits, into  Davis Straits.    It is also mainlined  'TO OUR .S3IELTERS.  vi-.'Hcr.'

Wl en I traveled in Canada, 20  years ago, it was a great reservoir of  raw materials with hardly the vestige  of a manufactory. At that time she  had not made a reaper, locomotive,  or^ar, piano, railroad car, felt' hat,  rubber slice or a piece of broadcloth.  She made a little cotton cloth and knit  ii'few shirts and stocking's. She had  reeipiociry with tiio United States,  and wo bought her ra w materia Is a rid  raid for them in manufactured goods.  ', What made the change ?  John McDonald, the McKinlev of  Canada, threw up reciprocity, put a  protective tariff on all these manufactured jroeds and moved tlie manu-  ���'factories into Canada. Two cents on  cotton cloth built up 20 big- cotton  factories like the one at St. Catherine  andThorolcl.    Protection made Troy  ��� move stove factories to Toronto, and  set 7C0 men to making organs at Bow-'  manville. Protection started furni  ture factories all over the Dominion,  made locomotive works in Toronto,  and car shops that rival Pullman in  Montreal. Protection captured industry after industry, as protection  captured pottery, nails, glass, tin and  iron in the United States. Still they  lacked pig iron. They believed they  had ore beds, but capital, was timid.  '.Now they have, put a $4 a ton tariff  on pig iron, and a $10 a ton tariff on  bar iron, and ore beds begin to open  up and steel works are starting.  Will protection bring the iron industry to Canada ?  It may not. It is an experiment  like; the tin., industry in the States:  Our Jpi^ djonditipna) tariff on Jt'in-ore  proved that the Harney Peak and  the Tremiscol tin mines were exag  gerated. Still, our 2.2'protection on  manufactured tins brought us 57 tin  factories, and now we are making  one third of all we use. If the $-1  tariff on pig iron don't bring out iron  ore in Canada they will take it off,  let pig iron come free, but keep their  steel works.  But there is a free-trade party in  Canada called the Liberals, who want  all this protection taken off. They  say ; "If we buy these things in the  United States they will cost less  money." They forget that if they  buy them in tile States their own fac  tories will be idle arc! that we will  have their money and they will have  their idle men.  . Canada is doing with iron and steel  just what we did with plate glacsand  tin. She believes she has rich uncle-  veloned iron mines. Her iron protection is high, but if it developes her  mines and .makes steel plants in  Canada she will keep her money at  home and iron will be cheaper in the  end. Tin is a dollar a box cheaper  now since we are making a third of  the product wanted here" and plate  glass and nails cost only one-fourth  the price we paid for them in Englard  and France. The John McDonald-  McKinley policy will always make  prosperity. It will always make big  wages, keep money at home and keep  the boys at work.  Canada is smart  Eli Perkins.  NOTICE.

All the  freight^ being brought by. them from  the station.  Messers. Harrison & Bendrum, proprietors of the L.H., started down to  their claim Saturday. ��� This is an  excellent gold property and it has  been stated that they were offered but  refused a large sum of money for it  'last week.  LEDGE GROPPINGS  David Knight, the well-known  barber, has returned to Kaslo after  nearly a year of hospital experience  in which he lpst his right leg.  Messrs. McClennan, Brandon, Cul-  .lens and Foster left town on Sunday  for Springer creek and may possible  go through to Nelson. They are prospecting.  The barbers of Rossland have formed a union to maintain prices. It is  the only camp in Kootenay where a  shave was ever obtained for less than  25 cents.  J. Findley, representative of* the B.  C. Iron Works, Vancouver, is now  stationed here for some time to come.  Mr. Findley will personally visit all  pa rties desirous of doing business with  his firm upon application. f  During the exceeding hot weather  of the past week many of Denver  citizens have taken advantage of the  fine opportunities afforded of bathing  and boating in Slocan lake.  Capt. Fitzstubbs, gold commissioner, reached town on Saturday. The  Captain made mention while here o*  the excellent transportation facilities  that our district is blessed with, and  said that he knows of no place in the  world where railways, roads, trails,  etc., are in better condition considering the short time since mining  operations were begun here. Hurrah  for Slocan district! On Monday in  company with Mr. Sproat, recorder  here, he went down to.Slocan City,  and arranged for Mr. Sproat to inspect Ten Mile creek and Springer  creek trails and to report as .to the  requirements and advantages of  these trails.  Senator Teller, of Denver, Colorada,  has been in the Slocan for a few days  evidently survejdng the great silver  camps whose reputation has become  continental. We understand that the  honorable gentleman is largely interested in the silver industry of his own  State, and to such an one the remarkable mineral developments of our  Province would not be without interest. It was thought possible at first  to induce him to deliver a public ad-  dress in New Denver upon the Silver  question, but the Senator was not able  to comply. We learn that he has intimated his intention of returning in  the future, ..: .No doubt: he has recognized the marvelous richness of our  treasure vaults and we hopeto know  of other interest also being directed  to us as the result of the intelligence  he bears.
