swift, the Captain lost control of the

struck on llie lttrgc rock in Ihe middle
of the canyon. Almost half of the
bottom was knocked out and the water
was coming in fast. Now dear Sister
Superior just Imagine us standing on
a wrecked steamer that perhaps in a
few more minutes would be in pieces
and under water. It was such a terrible
sight to be in that canyon on the rocks
und the water rushing by so furiously
that really lean not begin to describe
il. The Annerly passed before us and
was about a utile below the canyon
when we were wrecked, the captain
gave the cry of distress and Ihe Annerly
turned and came to our help at once
which was tiol a minute too soon. Our
boat wus already tilled tip with water
down stairs anil turning over. We
went down a ladder and were not more
11.an live minutes in the Annerly when
the Hustler was in pieces and live more

to his brothei- in law, George
Watson, In an interview with
tho Captain, ho remarked that
lie was here twelve years ago,
Mid at lhat time thought that the
future would show that this distriot was destined to be one of
the largest mining camps on the
continent, and what he has seen
since he has been here confirms
what he thought of the district
years before,
He snyst-the copper deposits
on Elk river are simply supurb.
there are rod carbonates that
beat anything that I ever seen.
The water power on Elk river is
unrivaled, and there is unlimited
water for concentrators and
smellers in most of the rivers in
the district, I have visited the
Dibblo property whioh my old
friend Sprague has captured,
and my opinion is, that it will
make one of the richest mines in
the country, Your ore in this
district is low grade, but you
havo lots of it, all that you want
is transportation, than concentrators and smelters will come.
Why! I have seen several men on
the street, comparatively broke,
yet they havo prospects that run
S-10 to the km. With railway
communication, they would be
rich men. If you can only get a
railroad you have the richest
mining camp in the country.

THE INVICTA CO.
This Company has a large
number of men at work. One
large Giant is working under a
pressure of -1(10 feet, another will
bo in position in a few days, and
by the last of the coming week
there will be four giants in operation. The Electric Light plant
is working nicely, and the company are working night and day
shifts.
THE NIP AND TUCK.
Everything is working like a
charm on this claim, plenty of
water and moving lots of gravel.
J. M, Buxton visited the mine on
Wednesday,
One of file most valuable mineral deposits in Ibis section of
lite country is known as the
Dibblo group, Situated in u
gulch of the Rocky mountains,
about ton miles from Fort Steele.
It was discovered by Jamos
Dibble and two other men In the
fall of 1890, Tim ore is a gray
copper, carrying gold and anti-
monial silver, Tho country rock
is porphyrilio slate and talcose
shist. There are six claims in
tho group, on all of which there
is a good showing of mineral.
This property was bonded to
Wm. Sprague last October, and
the Chisholm Bro's of Montana
arc interested in the bond, which
we learn will be taken up before
tho time expires as the parties
are well satisfied with the property, A tunnel was commenced
last fall, which is now in 300 feel,
with a depth of 40(1 feet. In running this tunnel four leads havo
been cut, and a fifth has been
■eacheil, which is on the Last
Chance, tho original location ami
is without doubt the main lead of
the group. The first lead that was
reached, is 18 foot in width, the
ire is a gold quartz carrying
siver, which assayed §109,60 in
gold, and Hli ounces in silver.
The second lead is about a foot
in width, the ore is a gray copper
very rich in gold and silver,
which assayed $33,70 in gold and
170 ounces in silver, The third
is five feet of gold quartz, The
fourth has three feet of gold
quartz. Tho fifth, which is the
Last Chance lead has just been
reached, its width is not known
the ore is gray copper and chlorides, two men who are working
on this lead, took out over!? 1,51 Hi
worth of ore in two shifts.
Another place has been opened
west of the tunnel some 100 feet
with a good showing of gold
quartz, which assayed $3,20 in
gold and Ji oz in silver this is
purely surface. The company
intend to commence building a
road from Port Steele to the mine
at an early day, and will put in
electric drills and lights, They
expect to ship ore during the
coming month.

THE  IXPOIITI'VA'I'E THICK.
T
HREK  wide  awake  looking young
men ran up the steps ot a rather
Ji pretentious looking house on Wabash avenue a day or two ago ami each
one seemed anxious to distance the other.
As they all arrived at the same moment,
however, they evidently concluded to extend the nag ot truce and the most active
asked, inquiringly:
"Going to Interview the bride, I suppose?"
"Of course," was the answer which
came from the other two, and the three
awaited the opening of the door In response to the Impatient ring of No. 1. After what seemed an unnecessary delay
the door opened and a very sweet looking lady stood hefore them. She look.-d
inquiringly at the three eager faces before her, then asked gently:
"Who was It you wanted to see?"
"Wu have called to interview you In relation to your daughter's marriage," said
No. 1, raising his hat and unconsciously
modulating his  voice.
"My daughter's marriage," cried the
lady, turning ghastly pale. "My daughter la not going to he married."
"We know that, madam; the event has
already taken place," returned No. 2, also taking off his hat In deference to the
lady's evident grief.
"You are laboring under some misapprehension," was the dignified answer.
"My daughter Is not married, nor has she
any intention at present of changing her
name. You are certainly mistaken," and
the lady drew herself to her full height
and started to close the door.
"But, my dear madam, 1 assure you,"
cried No. 3, pulling a newspaper from his
pocket and pointing to an article heahed
by the statement that another of Chicago's fair daughters had eluded parental
watchfulness and joined her fate with
that of the man she loved. The lady eagerly caught the paper In her trembling
hands and ran her eyes down the column. To her horror she saw lhat the
girl referred to was her own Myrtle, and
that the address given was her own.
"There is some mistake, gentlemen,"
she gasped. "Come Inside and 1 will rail
Myrtle," and she threw open the duor
Which hut a moment before she had been
so ready to close In their faces.
Summoning a servant, she gave directions that her daughter be told to come
Into the parlor, and then invited the three
reporters lo ho seated. A moment later
tho door opened and a bright-faced yuung
girl run into the ruom, her bright golden
hair milled nnd hor eyes gleaming. At
first sho did not see the lluve reporters,
ami began some laughing remark, hut,
observing Unit her mother was not alone,
idle slopped In the middle of it. sentence
and looked Inquiringly around.
_ "Al.vrlle," her mother snld gravely,
"these jguiitlcincn have culled upon a
very strungv* jrr.uid. They say Ihey waul
to interview me concerning your marriage."
"My marriage, mamma?" Myrtle asked
In bewilderment, looking nl her mother,
"Yes, and, more than that, show me
the morning paper, in which Is given a
Jiommuonnl report of it."
"But, mamma, I am not'married," ihe
young girl said earnestly, and no one
looking at her honest, hluu eyes could
doubt the truth or her statement.
"How do yuu explain this article, then?"
askeil No. It, pointing to tho paper.
"1 don't know how such a report could
have originated," returned the young girl.
"I am nol married, and 1 have nu Intention of being for a long while," hut she
blushed as she said these last words, a
fact which the sharp-eyed No. 2 noticed,
and drew his own Inferences,
"What do you call a long time?" be
asked, In a rather impertinent tone, calling down upon his head the wrath of his
brother reporters, who etidenvoreii to
quench his curiosity, but Myrtle came lo
his rescue and said in a dignified manner:
"A year at least. Perhaps I had better
tell you the truth. I am engaged, but out*
wedding day Is nol set. Mamma does not
wish me to marry until I am 18, and I certainly love her too much to run counter to
hor wishes," and she turned to her mother with so sweet a smile that No. 3 was
convinced, although be could not resist
asking:
"But if there Is no truth In the story,
how does It come that your marriage license was puhllshod yesterday?"
"What?" cried both ladies In horror,
"Yes," and, unfolding another paper,
he pointed to the column of marriage licenses There appeared the notice that a
marriage license had been Issued to Harold Bingham, aged 2.1, and Myrtle Eastman, aged 18. In terror the iwo ladles
looked at each other, their fneos turning
ashen in their bewilderment. An they
looked from each other to the aympathet-
ic reporters the door was hurst open and
on Infuriated young man nlmost fell Into
the room. His race was bruised and his
clothing lorn, but he looked triumph Ant
and. In spite of lack of hrenth, manag-d
to gasp:
"I've got even with him. the dirty cur."
"Oh, Harold, have you seen tho morning papers?" sobbed Myrtle, running up
.  to him and raising her pretty lips to his,
*4   "You bet, nnd I've fixed the fellow that
splayed us tho mean trick.   He won't stir
out in a month of Sundays."
"Who was It. Harold, who was It?"
Myrtle cried, and Mrs, Eastman echoed:
"Yes, who was it?"
The young man wiped his bloody face
several times before answering, then said
In a slightly embarrassed manner:
"A fellow. You don't know him. He's
heen trying to get even with me, nnd so
hit upon this plan. He bought the license
and gave Iho account to the newspapers.
When I saw what bad been said I went
around and licked him, He won't try any
such monkey shines about ma again, I
guess," and be grinned triumphantly.
"But, Harold, ihe disgrace," moaned |
Mrs, Kastman, hiding her face In her
hands "Ilow can wo live through ll?"
nnd she begun tn rry. Seeing her mother
weeping seomnd lo overcomo Myrtle ami
she joined in lamenting over the calamity,

When Gladys trends the minuet,
With roses in her balr of Jet,
Mel lilnks no (lower that ever blows
Is half so lovely as the roue.
In fool hall days she's wont lo wear
Chrysanthemums; und then I swear,
"No Mower can be more rich and gay
Than the fair Gladys wears today."
And when she kneels with humble air
And murmurs low her Lenten prayer,
Wilh purple violets on her breast,
Why, then I'm sure 1 like them best.
Hul If for me she'll wreathe her hair
With orange blossoms pure and fair,
I'll prize, llll stars .shall cease to shine,
The blooms which make sweet  Gladys

said Florence, with a smile. "1 have no
Intention of calling upon your talents; 1
hav.- an asylum in view for my favorite."
"Oh, th'-n you knew just what I was
going tu say. Mrs, Marshall, 1 presume,
has been speaking to you; she was here
yesterday, and l was quite pathetic upon
the subject, telling her the loss of your
favorite would sustain, and so forth; and
she said how delighted she would be to
have It In her greenhouse; It Is in sueh a
line state now. so full of buds. I told her
I knew you would like to give it to hor;
you are so fond of Mrs. Marshall, you
know,"
"Now, Kate. I am sorry, but 1 have otherwise engaged it."
"Who can It be? You have so few Intimates here."
"oh. it is only one of my odd fancies."
"Hut do tell me,   Florence."
"Well, cousin, you know the little pale
girl to whom we give sewing?"
"What! Little Mary Stephens? How
absurd, Florence! That Is Just another of
your motherly, old-maidish ways; dressing dolls for poor children, making bonnets and knitting socks for all the little
dirty babies In the neighborhood. I do
believe you have made more calls In those
two vile, Ill-smelling alleys behind our
house than ever you have in Chestnut
street, though you know everybody is
half dying to see you; and now to crown
all you must give this choice little bijou
lo a seamstress girl, when one of your
most Intimate friends. In your own cla«s,
would value It so highly. What In the
world can people In their clrciiinstatiies
want with HowersV"
"Just the same as I do," replied Florence, calmly. "Have yon not noticed that
the little girl never comes here without
looking wistfully at the opening buds?
And don't you remember, the other morning she asked me so prettily if I would
let her mother come and see it, she was
so fond of llowers?"
"But, Florence, only think or Ibis rare
flower standing on a taole wllh hnm,
eggs, cheese nnd flour, and stifled in that
close little room where Mrs. Stephens
and her daughter iiiiiiiiiko lo wash, Iron
nnd cook."
"Well. Kate, and If 1 were obliged to
live In one coarse room, and wash, und
Iron, and cook, as you say; if 1 had to
spend every moment of my time in toil,
wllh no prospect from my window but a
brick wall and dirty lane, such a flower
as this would be untold enjoyment to
me."
"Pshaw, Florence! All sentiment. Poor
people have no lime lo be sentimental;
besides. I don't believe It will grow Willi
them; It Is a greenhouse flower, and used
to a delicate living."
"Oh. ns to that, a (lower never inquires
whether its owner Is rich or poor; und
Mrs. Stephens, whatever else she has not,
lias sunshine of as good quality as this
that streams through our window. Tlie
beautiful things that God makes are his
gifts to all alike. You will see that my
fair rose will be as well and cheerful In
Mrs. Stephen's room as in ours."
"Well, after nil, how odd! When one
gives' to the iioor people, one wants to
give them something useful—n bushel of
potatoes, a ham, and such things."
"Why, certainly, hum and potatoes
iiiusl be supplied; but, having ministered
to the lirsl and most craving wants,
why nut mid any other little pleasures or
uratlllcatlons we may have 11 In our power lo beBtow? I know there nre many
of the poor who have tine feeling nnd a
keen sense of the beautiful, which rusts
out and dies because they are too hard
pressed to procure it any gratification,
Poor Mrs. Stephens, for example; I know
she would enjoy birds and flowers and
music as much ns I do. I have seen her
eye light up as she looked upon these
Ibings In our drawing room, and yet nol
one beautiful tiling can Hhe command,
From neeessliy, her room, her clothing,
all she has, must be coarse and plain.
You should have seen the almost rap-
lure sho and Mary felt when 1 offered
them my rose."
"Hear me! Ail this may be Inie, but 1

Lhmighl thai these hard working people

"Then why do you see the geranium or
rose so carefully nursed In the old crueller! (capoi iii tlie poorest room, or the

iwlned about Iho window? Hu not Ihcsc
show thai the human heart yearns for

"Well, I never thought before of giving

out of my way."

You kissed me! my head'
Dropped low on your breast,
With a feeling of shelter
And infinite rest,
While the holy emotions
My tongue dare not speak
Flashed  up ill a (lame
From my heart to my check.
Your arms held  me fast-
Ob, your arms were so bold!
Heart beat  against  heart
In  your  passionate  fold.
Your glances seemed drawing
My soul through my eyes,
As the sun draws the mist
From the seas to the skies.
Your lips clung to mine
Till 1 prayed in bliss
They might never unclasp
From the rapturous kiss.
You kissed me! my heart,
And my bruin, and my will,
In delirious joy
For a moment stood still.
Life had for me then
No temptations, no charms,
No vision of happiness
Outside of your arms;
And were I this instant
An angel  possessed
Of the peace and  the joy
That  are   given   tbe   biesl,
I would (ling my white robes
I'nrepentingly  down,
J would tear from my forehead
Its beautiful crown,
To nestle once more
In that haven or rest,
Your lips upon mine,
My head on your breast.
You kissed me! my soul
In a bliss so divine
Keeled and swooned as a drunk'n man
Foolish   with   wine;
And   I   thought  'twere  delicious
To die there, If death
Would but come while my lips
Were yet moist with your breath;
If my heart might grow cold
While your arms clasped me round
In your passionate  fold.
And these are the questions
I  ask ilny and night:
Must my lips taste no more
Such exquisite delight?
Would you care if your breast
Were my shelter ns then,
And if you were here
Would you kiss me again?

*^iHK police force of the Empire was n
|    curious und complicated Institution
li but ii cannot be dented that ir
those days life and property enjoyed a
degree of security which afterward did
not exist. A remarkable Instance of the
ucutoneHS shown was related to me by
a   porsonttgo concerned in It,   tho Comie
de G        P , well known In the highest
Parisian society of the time.
The Comta de G-— F— was Intimate
with an old marchioness of the aristocratic Faubourg SI. Germain; ho had known
her for years, and even bad Hie habit of
addressing her by the affectionate term
of "Maman,"
One day on paying "Mamnn" a visit,
he found her In a stale of great iigltatton;
she hud just discovered that she had been
robbed of a large sum of money, which
she bad placed In her bureau pending its
Investment by her "agent de change," or
stockbroker.
The count soothed her as well as be
could, and having ascertained thnt she
had not yet mentioned what she had Just
discovered to anyone but himself, be urged her to keep Ihe matter secret, and io
leave it in his bunds, which she consent-,
ed to do,
Tbe count then went at once to the
chief of police, who listened attentively,
and, merely remarking that the theft
must have been committed by some one
well acquainted with the house, asked
carelessly what were the habits of the
marchioness. The count answered that
she led the qtitet life of an elderly lady,
only varied by a dinner party once every
week, on lhat very day; but that she was
so much disturbed by her loss that probably on this occasion the guests would lie
put off.
"On no account!" cried the prefect of
police. "Tell your friend, above all things,
lo make no change; she must give her
dinner party as usual—but she must allow me to send her a guest."
The count started. "What—a detective? My friend will not like the Idea at
all."
"If she wishes to recover her money,
she must let mo manage this matter in
my own way. Be so kind as to go to the
Passage Delorme, opposite the Tullerles
Palace, at live o'clock this evening. You
will there find a young man who will address you by name, and who will call
himself 'M. de Saint-Julian.' Take him to
your friend, and he will join her party.
Leave the rest to me."
A good deal disturbed, the count returned to the marchioness, who at first
was horrlled al the Idea of a detective for
a guest; but she yielded at length, and
the count went, as agreed, to the Passage Delorme. The gallery was empty,
and the count began to look into the shop
windows to beguile ihe time, when he saw
a young man fashionably dressed, and of
remarkably elegant and gentlemanlike
appearance, who also began to look at the
toys. After a shorL pause, he accosted
the count,
"Monsieur, you are waiting for some
one?"
"Monsieur," answered the count, "1 nm,
Indeed, expecting some one to meet me;
but I should bo greatly surprised If that
Individual were yourself."
"1 have the pleasure of addreslng the
Comic de G— P—?"
"Yes."
" I am M. de Sulnl-Jullen."
Greatly astonished, the count bowed,
and ut once begnn to pace the gallery
with the newcomer, who questioned him
with astute quickness as to the circumstances of the robbery, and after quietly
stntlng thai Ihe thief must be some one
well acquainted with the ways of the
marchioness, he asked:
"Now take me to your friend's house."
"Hut." said tlie count, "how shall 1
shall I know If you have discovered any
clue?"
"I will mnke this gOHltlre," and the detective made a rapid circular motion with
his right hand, holding the forefinger extended.
This point being setlled, "M. de Halnl-
Jullou" was duly Introduced io the marchioness, Soon he had charmed everyone present by bis perfect ense of man-
tier und Hie brilliancy of his conversation.
Tlie count sul watching the strange
guest, tittle pleased at his apparent for-
geifuliiess of Ihe only motive which explained Ids presence In such society. Hut,
al I be close of the dinner, "M. de Salul-
Jullen," silll carelessly Milking and laughing, looked toward Ihe count, and rapidly paused bis band, with forefinger extended, round the rim of the lluger-glnss
lie fore him, but In such a milliner tliat It
seemed ihe natural accompaniment to
what be was saying.
tin leaving ihe dinner table, the count
eagerly approached him, nnd whispered;
"You made the sign?"
"Certainly."
"You are on the track?"
"I know who It Is.'
"Who?" cried the count.
"The servant behind your chair. He Is
the man."
"How can you possibly know?" exclaimed Ihe count, greatly aslonlshed.
"1 suspected the robbery had been committed by a professional 111101', so [ usod

"But," cried the count, "of course he

Halnl-Julieii, "Tlie house Is guarded at
every door."
The man did realty try to escape, and
was immediately slopped. The room In

The discs will be caused lo move synchronously by means of electric connections lo Ihe same circuit. The negative,
which contains the picture to be set, Is
specially prepared. The gelatine film Is ,i
non-conductor, and ibis wiil be mounted
on some substance which Is a conductor.
As everyone knows who is familiar
with the rudiments of photography, the
action of the chemicals used in the development of a sensitive plate after exposure cither tears away entirely or reduces to an imperceptible thinness tlie
film In places wherein the exposed pie-
lure heavy shadows appear. Where iho
high lights are the film is the thickest.
Therefore, with the negative film
mounted on a copper base, the electric
current would lie Interrupted where the
film Is thick, and where, hy the pt ess

the current would pass through to tho
copper und become a record, and passing over the wire lie recorded ai the
other end.
The discs will revolve nt the rub- of
1O0O revolutions n minute by means of
mechanism impelled by electricity. The
negative will be given n lateral million

it will be seen that, should there be six

been copied during the minute und recorded at the other end of the circuit.
This would mean tiuit a copy had beo.ii
obtained containing lines liner than 100

by means of small Induction coils, which

J. C. Eaton, one of the owners of the
Whitewater mine in Ihe Slocau country,
came down last evening. Mr. Eaton is
much pleased with the outlook of tho
district and regards it as one of the best
In Brltah Columbia, "It is essent-.ally a
poor man's camp," said he, "If a man
finds ore, as a rule, he can commence
shipping," He further said: "The roail
from the Whitewater mine to While-
water station will bo completed before
many days. It is a mile and a half long
and built by the mine. We are producing
ore all the time nnd will commence shipping again as soon ns possible. Al present tho railroads will not take the on\
owing to the high water.
"We have started No. 1 tunnel. Wo nave

the usual grade. The success of the
Whitewater has stimulated development
in the Whitewater basin, and prospectors
are busy.
"From the Whitewater we have made a
large number of shipments in the oast.
The lowest smelter returns of ore from
the winze was 191 ounces silver, and from
that to 313 ounces. The Whitewater i.lso
made the first shipment of ore from the
Slocan country via Kaslo, the smelter returns from which were ?1B1 a ton, with
silver at xii cents and lead at $3.20.
"The mine Is well developed. No. 1 tunnel Is In 100 feet; No. 2, 850: No. 3, 38 foot;
No. 4, commenced June 15, Is now in 1
feet; a winze 70 feet; a connection between No. 1 nnd No. 2 levels 75 feel—a
total of llll feet of development work, to
say nothing of a large amount of surface
work. In No. 3 tunnel, at l(i!i feet, n crosscut to the banging wall shows the vein

ore on the hanging wall and two feet on
the footwnll, the vein matter between
showing more or less ore till through. At

"The average value or all shipments lias

It was your correspondent's privilege a few days ego to pay u visit to tho
famous fruit orchards at this place.
We were met by the veteran orchardlst
und prince of good fellows, H. H. Spalding, who kindly conducted us through
his somewhat extensive orchards, Mr.
Spalding bus about CO acres set to
fruit. About 15 acres of this Is known
tis the old orchard and is
the part which is under irrigation, Up on the hillside out of
reach of water Mr. Spalding has planted about 40 acres of apples, mostly
winter varieties, also 10 acres of prunes,
mostly Italian.
The fruit In the valley consists of
apples, pours, plums, cherries, peaches,
apricots, nectarines, quinces, grapes,
strawberries, etc.
The strawberry crop was about past,
und cherries were moving fast. Of
strawberries tlie Sharpless variety
seems to be the one mostly grown. The
crop this season was an average one.
(berries.
lu discussing the question of the
best cherries for Snake river Mr, Spalding said: "We have no use for the
small sour cherries or pie cherries,
known as Kentish (early Richmond and
Montmorency belong to this class.)
We prefer to grow tbe subacid cherries, such its may duke, late duke and
the like, People won't buy the small
cherries if they can get larger ones,
und our duke cherries answer all purposes for pics anil canning." Movellos
seem not to be much grown at Almoin.
Among sweet cherries the bigarreaus
are favorites, being firm fleshed and
line shippers. Napolean (royal aim)
and black republican, arc tho two lenders, though I learned that the yellow
Spanish is shipped largely out of the
river ami sells readily us (royal ami,)
it coming in 10 or IS days earlier than
the Napolean. Governor Wood, belonging lo iho duke family, is aleo
shipped as (royal ann) but this is a pour
shipper, being very soft and juicy, and
being almost white, discolors readily.
There are many better cherries and this
one might be dropped from the list
with profit to the shipper.
A cherry just now coming Into favor
on Snake river as a valuable shipper
is iiing. (n heart cherry) a large dark
brown, almost black cherry, very late,
keeps well on the tree nnd Is destined to
become a money maker.
Tlie crop of cherries this season In
Almota is an average one.

times as many nf this variety being
grown as any other. Clapp's favorite,

I'linns iimi Prunes,
A groat many varieties are grown,
but if Mr. Spalding were to plant over
again he would confine himself to such
leaders as peach, Bradshaw, yellow
egg and a few others that are money
makers.
Italian prunes nre preferred to any
other owing to their "superior size and
ha bit of thinning themselves. Silver

Following Is t
ir principles:
"Wo, the undersigned citizens of the
^laie of Washington, hereby express our
ipprovnl of ihe following political prin-
'We
'.he pe
elieve the flnunclal question to be
amount national issue in ibis jam-
"We believe that the power given to
congress to coin money und regulate the
value thereof is a high attribute of sovereignty, and should be exercised as sii'di.
We believe that the people of Ihe United Stales should take their metallic
money from their mountains, Instead of
issuing bonds In time of peace and mortgaging posterity to secure their payment.
"We believe In the use of both gold Qttd
silver as equal standard money, and Cat
Hie government of the United Stiues
should Immediately ojhsh its mints to froe,
unrestricted, unlimited and Independent
coinage of silver al the ratio of 10 purls of
silver to I of gold.
'We believe thai HO years of fruitless efforts and the failure of tlve International
monetary conferences to accomplish anything, except to emphasize the unalterable
opposition of Hie creditor nations to enter
into any compact looking to the restoration of silver as a standard money, las
conclusively proven international bimetallism to be a delusion, and that Ihe pretended desire of a certain class of politicians to restore silver hy international
agreement is a last refuge of the foes of
silver.
"While agreeing with the vivid itate-
nieiit made in the national republican
platform us lo Ihe distress prevailing
throughout the country, we disagree as
to the \-au^< producing the same. We believe tint these conditions are directly
traceable lo the contraction of the volume
of standard money resulting from the demonetization of sliver, and nol to the
slbiht difference of ii per cent between
tbe McKlnley and Wilson tariff laws.
"And we are unalterably opposed to
a perpetuation of those (Carlisle and
Cleveland measures which have produced
'li;:- condition."
Tlie object of ihe party is to promote
irmony among the advocates of free
linage within this stale, and aid In the
imention of the bimetallic forces.

j mining sections of British Columbia are attracting the attention
of the conservative English Clip-
j italists. The field is a large one
i and well worth investigating.
[E. B. Osier. M. P. for west
Toronto, has recently returned
front England and says: "English
capitalists have been looking to
Canada as a place to invest their
money." That this is trite is evidenced by tlie number of experts
who have been sent out to investigate. English capital is
being wi'hdniwn from South
Africa and Australia, and the investors will place their money
now where they will be protected
by British laws. They are reaching the conclusion that British
Columbia is the place they have
been looking for. and are no doubt
thankful that the American prospector and miner has shown to
them what stores of minerals are
hid in tho mountains of British
Columbia.

The National Matte Smelter.
A practical, cheap and simple
method of matting sulphide ore,
such as nickle. copper, gold, and
silver ores, in localities where
lead ores and fuel are scarce and
almost unattainable, our pyritie
water jacketed Matte Smelter
has been recognized with highly
satisfactory results, and has
been thoroughly tested on vari
ous pyritie, sulphide and arsen
ide ores, in capacity of 2 to 80
tons per day. It is the simpliest
method of gold and silver ore
matting, and concentrating that
is known to-day.
It requires no extraordinary
skill, no lead ores, no fluxing
material, and no fuel for the sin
elter after it is started. The sul
pher in the ore is its natural
fuel only, and its cost has no
comparison with any other process of concentrating.
We are prepared to furnish any
size or capacity plant complete
to substantial mining people, set
it up and furnish our men to run
it for them on easy payments
Prices and specifications, with
references and testimonials on
application.
