 East ani. lilest Kootenay  M.ivo   Bolter Showings   for Mines   than   any.,   j  older Sections on the Coiitineal |  of America. j  (Capital an& Brains  Can   Both, be, Employed   to   Advantage   in  "  *M<-:-\e  Camps of E;  ���/est   Kootenay.  the Mining Camps of East  and  FII.ST   YI.A  ^  N O.  NULSOlY,   IJRI.TISH   (JOLUjYUHA,  THURSDAY,   A.H.UWT  :i,   1 SUM  PRICE TEN  CENTS.  ABLE PRESENTATION OP A QUESTION  THAT  CONCERNS  EVERY  PROPERTY  OWNER IN WEST KOOTENAY.  Tho Land of EHuzarOs Pt-odueefi a Man that  Rends the Arj.um.unlM of the Gold Bu_��  In Slu-edfi, tmd Sliows that the Demonetization of Silver in 1873 Was a Conspiracy.  The Tiiiiu'NK litis from Linus to time  printed reasons why silver should be restored to its old place as money, hub  Llie following-article written hyattorney-  general Sfandish of North Dakota is so  plain that Llie average render nmst see  duil;silver was demonetized in the United  .SLat.es at the behest of Llic ereditor class  in England. nnih-Lhat if restored .Lo its  proper place :is money, justice would only  he done the debtor classes.  M_.   ST AN DISll'S   AU.I(*I,_.  There was never sne-h a thin,, in this  country as Llic coining ol" silver free of  charge for bullion owners, and no such  thing has ever been proposed, therefore  the term ������free silver coinage" is a. misleading term and we should substitute for  iL Lhe words unlimited coinage without  purchase I'or one-tenth toll us pay for the  work- and government stamp to remove  this misapprehension.  Tho law of unlimited silver coinage that  prevailed with us until February. 1ST.,  permitted tiny bullion owner to bring 112k  grains of bar or pure silver, to anygov-  erninens mint and tender il to (he officer  iu charge, who cut off one and one-fourth  grains tind put it in Lhe government-hopper as the government's toll, which reduced what was left to .71 y grains of pure  silver, tind to this the government added  a- mixture of IU grains called alloy. Alloy  is not a metal, but a mixture of metals,  and might be part copper and part glass,  and is placed with both silver and gold  bullion Lo harden it. and make iL of the  proper consistency Lo wear as money.  This alloy is very inexpensive, and the  difference between its value and that of  the pure silver bullion that it displaces in  a dollar is the government's pay I'or minting the money: and hence comes the expression "a silver dollar containing 81l[  grains of pure silver, or H2i, ���grains- nine-  ��� tenths fine." In the nine-tenths fine one-  tenth of. silver has boon, taken out bythis  ininting process aiid this cheap combined'  .substance called alloy substituted, in i.s  pla.ee.  If wo repeal the'Sherman bill and sub-'  stitute Mr. Bland's unlimited.coinage act  in its place and issue a coin certificate to  the man who brings I12J, grains of pure  silver to the mint, and till the silver money  of the world should bo -melted down iuto  bullion and Ill-ought to our mints for free  coinage, there would none of it be pure  silver, anil under a, bill properly drawn,  ���none of'it. would be admissable, and the  holders'of it would ha ve to take it away  and first extract the 10 per cent of alloy  in it. and then when they brought it back  again, after being separated and purili. d,  . .10.per conL more would be taken, out by  our government as its toll for mintage,  and as nearly all, the silver money of  Europe is now either full legal tender in  the payment of all private and public  debts, it does everything gold money can  and the limited legal tender silver money  Jills the office of gold as bank reserves at id  debt payments and can not be .had in  those countries at the bullion price of bar  silver, but it costs its. face value in gold,  as will be seen by the following letter from  Lhe ���secretary of our mint, for legal Lender  , and nearly that for Lhe limited :  TltKA.SlltY .Kl'AUTMK.  T.   WASIIINl.'TO. . I).   ... lliUV.ll  10. IS!).��� W. II. Stani>isii, l.akota. North Dakota���.Sil-:  In roply to your letter of t.lie lth instant. I wend you lioro-  . with a copy uf the testimony of the dire, tor of the mint,  lie. ire the committee on coinage, weights and measures  of the 1 .fty-lirst congress, in which you will lind the in-  foriiiation'yiiii desired as to the amounts of legal tender  silver in tiie various countries. In Kiigland il is legal  tender only to the amount of .Ci: in tlerinany of I'll murks,  in- about $i'>; in Italy, France, Spain, etc.. it is unlimited  legal lender, us also iu Switzerland, (treece tin'! lielgiuin.  There is no discount, in tliese countries on the legal  tender silver at the hanks.    Respectfully yours.  It. I . I'uicsto.v.  Acting Director of the Mint.  There is less Lhau 5jvl()0.000.l)00 of Lhe  limited tender silver money. All our  silver money was limited legal tender  from IS7-I Lo I87K, and was noL as good  money as is the limited legal tender of  Kngland, which pays a debt of K2. or near  $10, and no better than the silver money  now is (ierniaiiy. Since this letter was  written we have never found a ('erninn  or an Englishman just over, or recently  visiting his old home, who could rectiII an  instance where he had had to suffer a discount in those countries in using their  silver money there. We know in our  country from IS7-I to I STS till of our silver  money that had been coined prior to 1878  floated nt par up to J STS. although excluded hy law for paying a. debt of over  $7y, and yet a trade dollar at the same  time, containing-1.0 grains, could lie had  for 87) cents, because it had no legal tender capacity. We desire to remind congressmen tliat there is no perceptible discount on even the limited legal tender  money of Europe, sind tliey should satisfy  themselves of this hy taking the proof  and not rely on the gold trust that runs  our treasury department, the Associated  Press dispatches, and our metropolitan  press of both the old parties.  This limited Lender silver money would  cost near par to replace with gold to call  in and it would have to suffer its ^0 per  cent expense and loss for recoinage that  is shown hereal'Ler. and it would not be  offered to us to he melted up for recoinage  if we should pass the I'land bill for  reasons hereafter shown.  This silver coinage of Europe and India,  all of it, whether limited or unlimited,  legal  tender, contains   .   per cent less of  silver and 8 per cent less of weight than  our silver'dullnrs. or those that will be  made under the proposed Bland bill, as  the Kuropean ratio of coinage to gold  whiles thev made silver money was as I.',  to 1 of gold, while ours has been and will  be iu this ratio of 10 to I. so thai while  their mints are iu operation the world's  production largely went to them I'or coinage, because the same bullion (hey would  tender Lo our mint and have coined inLo  5j>.l if tendered to the Kuropean mint  made .'jS2: the mintage there added to Lhe  circulation of money in Europe, and aided  us to obtain better prices in Europe, and  thereby aided us just as much as if the  mintage had been here.  Won.ro told that unlimited silver coinage will cause the silver money of other  countries to bis melted down into bullion  tind sent hero I'or free coinage, and thereby  cause our government to lose several hundred millions of dollars.  The total silver money of the world is  approximately   .: 3.7OO.OO0.000.      We   have  Jf).*>()0.0()().C!00 of  this,   leaving  . ������.200.000,000  in other countries.   This 5, ".200,000.000 is  money   that   has   been   coined   in   those  countries, and by the laws of those countries has boon  made legal'tender for the  payment of all debts iu thorn, public-tind  private, and  therefore has a debt-paying  value equal to its face value, and will cost;  its   lace value in gold, as shown   by out-  preceding roinarks.and  a- latter from our  director of the mint that we have heretofore quoted.   The assumption  then   that  if could   be  purchased   in   gold at   what  would be its face value in bullion if it had  not been coined  and  made a legal  tender  must l)e discarded.  !     This being the ease, what profits would  * foreigners tind  speculators  make in buy-  i ing in   the coined  silver money of other  I countries to have itroooined by us?  First,  they would pay its Lace Lo get it; secondly, they would lose ���'"'per cent in weight,  the   coined   dollars   there   being smaller  than ours:  thirdly, by   reason   of the use  of coined money there since it was coined  it has worn away not less than 8 per cent.  which would bo another loss in   weight;  fourthly, undera properly drawn mintage  bill they would have to present tons pure  bullion, such as wc get in Lhe bar from the  mine.    To do this they would have to got  the alloy  extracted   out of their bullion  after  it was  melted down, tow it,  10 per  cent   alloy   that  was  put into it before  coinage to enable it  to bo coined.    This  extraction would cause a  loss  of  10  per  cent in weight and the cost of the extraction would probably be at leant one-half  the cost of -mintage, -which  would make,  .���mother'.5 per (rent to .start  with   before  'thoy .had over readied our mint, and our  mint would charge JO per cent of the bullion as its toll   for  recoinage,'.making 30.  per cent of an  outlay to buy   in   foreign  silver money to have it recoined by us, or  a loss to tho foreigner or -specula tor   who  attempted   it of  $0;"_.(. JO.OOO  besides   the  6xpro.--sa.go'both ways.    And'what would  these foreigners and speculators receive"'  Two billion two  hundred  iind   forty million dollars of coin certificates. And when  they got them they would,circulate, them  ns  money  the same as   we do  now  out-  silver   notes,  iind   if  they  preferred   the  coin they would present their certificates  to the treasurer and got the'silver dollars j  that laid-bison-coined  out of  this-silver'i  money tit <i loss of 80 per  cent, and in one j  case out of six. they  would  get gold, as |  five-sixths of our coin would be silver and  the balance gold,'and  our toll  gain   for  the   recoinage  less   expense of  mintage,  produces   $_{5(*.(i()(5.(5()().(i(i" as ��� the   government's profit in   helping those   foreigners  to lose ���p'-HiD.O');.OIK) in   trying to swamp us  with their silver, iind the recoinage would  leave the same volume of coined money in  the world that now  exists, less  the (5 per  cent of loss in weight hy  existing  inoney  being worn and   of   lighter coinage   than  our sil vim* money.  lt is ncxtsaid we can not live commercially, except as we adopt such laws on  money tis the creditor nations of western  Kuropo choose to dictate to us. Who tiro  those nations, and what are their condition, that we need to cow beforo them?  They are and always will be hungry and  miked, except as the debtor nations shall  supply their needs for existence. Nations  c-.ni exist without other 'nations to make  their money'or their money laws, but  they can not exist without either food or  clothing, iind when short of these must  go to those nations who have food iind  clothing and carry money,to buy it, as all  went to Joseph in the time of the famine.  If tin army was beseigod in a walled  city and had a full supply of money but  wiis short on loud and clothing it would  have to soon succumb, but if it; was provided with ample food und clothing it  could hold out indefinitely.  That, is the comparative condition between the creditor nations of l.urope and  those nations who iare debtors to western  Kuropo. iind yet hold to silver money.  These silver nations cover every portion  of the globe that produces' a surplus of  food and the raw material for clothing,  and every nation outside of ns who has  outlawed silver is short on both food and  clothing, and for all time to come will  have to make pilgrimages to these silver  countries and carry money into them to  gist food and clothing, the same its everyone carried money to Joseph for corn, or  iree/.e and starve.  In case w,e hold to silver coinage, wound  the ofhersijver producing nations will in a  measure dictate, tho price to our customers  for the food iind clothing that maintain  (heir existence, otherwise they will dictate tluit price fo us. making us their  serfs and slaves and keep us forever in  debt, maintaining a few lords in western  l.urope. Now Kngland. Now Vork and  Pennsylvania in idleness and oppuleneo:  adding to the wealth of the one-half of I  lereentof our population, who already  lave onis-luilf of all the wealth in this  country, and  entailing  upon   the  larger  ii repudiate!-:  it is  the  is.    P,y the change  the   investor   class  debtor class to pay  cent   more   than   I.I  ha ve been required  portion of   this other 00i, per cent of the  population  ,-i   condition  of  serfdom  and  pauperism.  The unlimited silver coinage man is not  other fellow who  of this coinage laws  have com pel led the  in value over 8 per  toy would otherwise  to pay. In I87'J iind  1871 this repudiation class of the oast who  talk so much about, tin honest, dollar  changed the con tract of. every bond, note  and mortgage in the l.'iiilod States, public  or private. Kvcry such contract had  been written and signed payable in silver  only if the debtor should so elect-, and  without the knowledge of tho debtor John  Sherman and his pals, through a law surreptitiously enacted, drew their pens  ii cross this silver ehuise iind blotted it out  of every existing obligation calling for  over $7). and when this, not only repudiation but arstua I forgery in the point of  fact, wa.s discovered in 1S7S, we asked leg-  ishition to restore Lhe original contract by  restoring full legal tender power to all  silver we had coined prior to 1ST", when  nearly every member and solicitor from  New Kngland refused to vote for the restoration and .stood out with every man  then in congress crying for an honest dollar and by their vote tried to validate and  continue in force the forgery and repudiation made in '71. by which the right to pa.y  in silver every note and bond in excess of  $7) had been extinguished.  An ounce of .silver bullion will buy tis  much wheat, beef orany other species of  property besides gold as it would in 1878.  or at any Lime since then, but by reason  of the outlawry practiced against it in  187:5, sind the refusal to restore it to the  right of unlimited coinage on shares for a  tenth toll to the government for ininting  that existed until" 1878 and always kept  the bullion at par. the demand for the  bullion has lessened iind it hits fallen in  price as compared to gold, but its intrinsic value is exactly the stinie iind it has  always boon: the character anrl virtue of  the metal litis not changed. The original  demand i'or the metal can not be restored  except by restoring to it its original minting privilege, which is nil that is asked by  the advocii.es of the Bland bill.  When any great conspiracy or crisis i.s  thrown upon a nation the people are unwilling to realize it. although the proofs  may be clear, positive and overwhelming.  Those favoring this conspiracy are enabled  to baffle and prevent forcible resistance  by the . people, which at the outset if  promptly applied would crush.it and save .  any -material in ury resulting from it.  'The conspirators do this by raising hopes  in the people tha t the-conspiracy can be  coaxed down by negotiations and does  not need to be crushed out. 'But when a  premeditated conspiracy like this, wliich  Wiis arranged in Em-one in 1867 between  the iigents of the creditor classes of the  -creditor.nations-of .l.urope iind an agent  from this country of the creditor classes  of this country, tluit they should labor to  secure legislation there iind here to stop  the minting of silver, and then proceeded  and obtained tluit legislation iu this country and in Kurope for the purpose of  doubling their bonds iind notes iind reducing the price of property, this conspiracy had gone too far for iiny sane man  to think of negotiating it out of existence  by ti treaty -with the conspirators, and hud  congress promptly met in 187-1 and restored null inited .coinage.by restoring.the  law repealed in 1878. the conspiracy would  have been crushed then before it had obtained any benefit out of. the conspiracy.  This -conspiracy to destroy silver as  money can not be negotiated out:.of existence by ii treaty,  but must he destroyed  OUR   GOLD   FIELDS.  and  Two HuiHlreil Men at Work on Salmon  Pend d'Oi-ielle Rivers.  While column after column has been  printed regarding miuiug operations iu  the .Sloean, but few lines have appeared  regarding operations in a district within  easy distance of Nelson ; yet there are almost as many men employed in fhoonoas  in the other, and the product of the one  least known is gold, a metal that appears  to be in great demand tit present. 311. A.  S. (ioing, ti civil engineer of Nelson, returned this week from a business trip  through this gold-bearing district, and is  lint a little elated at what he saw.  From Waneta. iit the mouth of Feud  d'Urcsillo river, to the mouth of tho South  Fork of Salmon river, a-distance of thirty  miles, nearly all the ground has boon  taken up by large and small companies, as  well its the good ground on several of tho  smaller tributary creeks. The Kootenay  hydraulic conipany has acquired .ill the  bench ground between Waneta iind the  mouth of Fifteen-mile crook. This company i.s now engaged putting in a 1 fall'  mile ditch between Sixteen-mile iind Fifteen-mile creeks, the work being done by  Brewster 6c Thomas under contract. Tho  ditch from Fifteen-mile creek to Fifteen-  mile biir is completed, iind sluicing on tho  bar will be commenced within two weeks.  Tho company's main ditch will bo thirteen  miles long, and i.s about halt completed.  '������All thesinall creeks, like Four-mile. Seven-  mile, Twelve-mile, Fifteen-mile, and Sixteen-mile, are tapped in order to get a  supply of water adequate to carry on operations. The company has over sixty  men in its employ.  Between Fifleon-iuilo creek iind the  mouth of Salmon river, a distance of throe  miles, are a number of small operators, all  at work making ditches. This ground is  known to be good a.s it was worked in the  '00s. when everything used was packed iu  from Walla Walla.  On Salmon river the Bates company is  finishing ii l,|-milo flume at a point about  three miles above the mouth of the river.  Next above i.s the Gorkow company with  sixteen men at work on a lA-milo ditch.  This conipany has its work so well under  way that a cleanup will be made by the  middle of the. month. As an indication of  the value of the ground, throe yards were  '''")������ cleaned up. Above  Wilson company has six  whipsawing  lumber  for a  ..sluiced   and   $1  Gcirkow's  the  iii.it -afc  work  by adverse legislation, by us restoring unlimited si I vei* coinage on the same ratio as  existed until 1878, and make it a legal  tender I'or sill debts, public, iind private,,  without iiny exception clause, as heretofore, authorizing the making of special  gold contracts. We must crush this conspiracy or be crushed by it. This legislation will crush it, iind without it certain  disaster awaits us.  Cunning of Female Inebriates.  A prominent Knglish physician of large  experience with drunkards says that he  can recall -hundreds of recoveries among  men. but only five among women. As an  instance of the eu nn ing with which female  inebriates gratify theirappefito forliquor  Lhe following story is related: Souk?  women in a retreat'-asked for curling  tongs, ii -very natural request. Next,,  they wanted methylated spirits with  which to heat (he irons, and, finally,  they wheedled hot wafer, sugar, iind  lemon juice out of one of the maids. Out,  of these liquids they contrived a concoction to satisfy their craving for alcohol.  Was Afraid to Ride.  '"While I Wiis in Kngland." says one  woman. "I was told of an American who,  on his first trip on tin Knglish railway,  quite hold his breath at; the rapid running.  When his nervousness rather overcame  him, heapproached the guard.  ���'���I say. guard." he ventured, "this is  pretty last, traveling for safety, isn't it. '  '"Oh, no. sir,", replied the guard, "we  never run off the line here, sir."  "'Hut." said the Van kee quickly, resenting the patronage, "it is not the line. I'm  afraid of running off your confounded little island."  Do Not Run Even.  The gold district over around Hall  'creek, twelve miles south west of Nelson,  is attracting considerable iit ten I ion. The  ledges are big and strong, but the yield of  free gold does not appear to run even.  One or two claims carry ore that gives  good assay returns: others, again, carry  ore that looks good but floes not, assay  worth a  .  ���flume. The next above Wilson's is the  Downs company, then comes the Dunning  company. The latter has just started operations. Above Dunn ing's are theMizener  boys, who are engaged at both placer and  quartz-mining-. They -have two placer  claims, one on 'each side of the river. On  the east side of the river they are at work  on ii ledge that carries ore -assaying -100  ounces silver aiid .28 gold to the ton.  They also.have men prospecting for them  on -Lost creek. ;\ li/.ener's camp is .six miles  from the mouth of the river.  Above Miz.enor's, the Fisher, Knife 6z  Long conipany 'has ground on the east  side of the river. The Salmon River Hydraulic Company has taken tip a claim on  Big creek, which empties into Salmon  river from this west 2), miles above Alizen-  er"s. and is prospecting the -ground.\- The  next 'above is the Oflicer company. At  the mouth of the Sou th--.Fork the Stewart  company has a claini. Quite a  number of prospectors are at work-  on this creek. Five miles above  the South -Fork is a stream-.-called  Sheep creek, on'which the Spokane Hy-  11rauiie' Mining Company.has it mile and a  half of ground.  '���.Altogether, fully "00 men are either iif  work tor these coin panics or a re engaged in  prospecting'in what'is locally known sis  the Siihnon River country, a country that  i.s directly tributary to Nelson. That  they arc not iit work' on barren ground is  shown by tho fact tluit Mr. Coiug tested  the ground iu probably a hundred different spots, and in no pan did ho fail to  find colors, but. on the contrary, found  from five to twenty-five colors of flake  iinrl pinhead ' gold in each pan.  (_i refill estimates give the .value  of the ground at from eighteen  to twonfv-livo cents a vard, and this cost  of working a 1,2).cents.    Capital.

San  Francisco Kxaininer:  financial   crisis is   mental     ti  lack of confidence    but if ou  tu lists  do   not change their tactics  The present  he   result  of  r local ou pi-  very  promptly it will develop into one thai-  will be something much more serious and  more painful than a state of mind. Tho  capital of a community is mostly produced  from year to year. Oi.ie ycar'ssuspension  of production would reduce any people  on earth to bankruptcy. Yet a suspension of production in some of our most  important lines is what threatens California th rough the senseless fears of this  owners of money.  No matter what the state of the times,  it has always been understood in financial  circles thai- money to move the crops  must be forthcoming. That is the fundamental necessity to which everything-else  find oursi  of  must give way. hut now we liurl ourselvi  in such ii position that it large part of our  fruit crop must, rot, on I lie ground for lack  of money to handle il. The situation  would he hard enough if it were caused  by necessity, hut the most, cruel part of  the whole affair is I hat il is totally needless. There i.s an ample supply of money  right in this city to meet every want. If  is locked up in safe deposit vaults, where  it does nobody any good,   waiting for a  change   in   the  times   which    will   never  come until it is released.  If the fruit-growers and -ennnevs are  ruined through the folly of the capitalists,  their misfortune will pinch the whole  state. In the fall, when money should be  pouring iu and business'should bo booming, there will be nothing to sell, no income, and times will be worse than ever.  The present temporary scare i.s a menace  of future disaster.  , Unlock the treasure boxes iind let the  money go where it i.s needed. The capitalists are not asked to bo philanthropic:  Thoy are merely asked to show ordinary  business sense. There is no riuostion of  security, for borrowers are willing to offer any guarantee required. There is no  question of profit, I'or tho current rate nf  interest is almost anything the lender has  the conscience to ask. If the holders of  money would pub it back into the hanks,  the .tinkers would probiibly relax their  uiKiccomniodating attitude toward tho  fruit-growers and canners, but it may be  too late for that indirect mode of relief to  have much effect. It would probably be  best for the capitalists to lend directly to  the persons who need funds for immediate  use. In any case, let the money be pub  back into circulation.  THE POOEIAN WILL BE WORKED.  ITS ORE IS FREE MILLING AND AVERAGES  , TWENTY DOLLARS A TON.  The Mine and Mill Are Located Within Six  Miles of Nelson and in a Belt that is Almost a Network of Goid Led/res, Many of  Which Could be Worked Profitably.  Desirous of obtaining some reliable information regarding the chances for  making money out of the extensive and  high-grade gold belt six miles west  of   Nelson, ii  Trmsu.vk   reporter  visited  Hospital Association Meeting-.  Tho board of'directors  of the hospital  association   hold  a   meeting   on Monday  afternoon,   the directors   in ��� attendance  being Messrs.  I .etcher. Bigelow.  Marks,  Mathoson,   Wilson,   Turner,   Scions and  Ward.   Application,  for  tins position of  matron    -wore    read ' from    Miss  Li__ie  Lugriim of Lethbridge,   Miss Clara Green  of Toronto,  and   Miss S.  Swan  of   Vancouver.    The secretary was instructed to  inform the applicants   that owing to the  si/.e of the hospital,  the business iu sight,  and the funds available, the  board could  not   employ   more   than    two   persons (a  nurse   and   tin   assistant),  and   tluit  the  nurse's wages would be not more than ."50  a   month,   with   board  anrl  room.    The  president and secretary were authorized  to    make    arrangements    with    Miss  B.  Urickniity of Nelson   to act as nurse temporarily until such  time as  one could be  employed regularly.    Two hills (one from  Gilker 6c  Wells  for stationery and   one  from the Miner  Publishing  Company for  advertising)   wore   road.    A  communication   wiis received  from   Miss  Crickinay,  stating that her charge for taking.care oi'  a sick man nathocl Holsoii. Avoulcl.be $15  a week,-and that .ui additional $7 a week  ���would be charged for his board. The charge  wa.s -considered' excessive,  and  the  secretary instructed to so notify Miss Crick-  may.    The secretary was instructed  to  ask the resident physicians'for'rates  for  treating non-paying patients.    The building committee were authorised to provide  necessary   furniture   and  appliances  for  the hospital, the cost not  to exceed  .$200.  A communication  was read from Messrs.

The  Three Good Appointments.  On .July 21st ii new "'deal was made by  which the oldest; and best-known official  in West ..Kootenay ..was relieved-of .part  of his official duties. T. II. Giffih of Nelson is no longer mining recorder'and assessor, iind collector of taxes. Instead, ho  is a "district,registrar under the Supremo  Court Act." Hereafter he, will wrestle  with contentious lawyers instoiid of with  perverse prospectors.

The j. oormnn, "whose ores the 10-stump  mill of the Davenport-Hussey company is  now working, i.s  the oldest discovery in  the gold district.    It was'found by Isaac  Nail and Peter McDougal in Lhe spring of  ISSS. These prospectors were c-oiniiigdowu  from the Silver King on Toad mountain,  and   were   following   the   west   bank of  what is now known as Eagle creek, when  their attention  was attracted   to a large  body of quart-/ croppiiigs on the opposite  side of the canyon.    On investigation they  found what tliey wore seeking.    This outcrop curried the yellow   metal   visible fo  Lhe  naked eye, and at once they staked  their claini, giving  it a   name   borne  by  dividend    payers    in    every   prominent  camp in the mining regions of the west.  The section was comparatively inaccessible at the  time,  and   in  order to get in  supplies and begin  the  work of development,   Messrs.   Nuil   and   McDougal  hud  quite un uniount of preliminary work to  do.    They made a trail fo  Nelson, built a  cabin,aud sunk several shafts (the deepest  being some twenty-two  feet) on the vein  by fall.    As surface water troubled them,  they  decided to run a  crosscut tunnel to  tap'the ledge.    In the spring of  18.. this  tunnel penetrated the ledge fit a depth of  ninety feet from  the surface.    The vein  wtis found to he as  wide,  as strong, and  Lhe quartz, iis rich as iit the surface, which  encouraged the owners.   A.s the surrounding hills were filled  with' men looking for  gold, flic, property had quite a notoriety.  In  iMay,  1889,,.John C.  Davenport and  James F. Waidner,  both   of whom hap-  penetT to hejir of the claim in Spokane," a thrived at Nelson on the same boat, each  after the property, provided if idled their  expectations...Each wanted to purchase  after a thorough examination, and it was  filially'loft   to chance to  ascertain  who  would be the fortunate man.    A game of  seveu-up was played on a log in front of  .John F. Ward's tout hotel, which wa.s the  only-hostelry in the entire Kootenay Lake  country at thu time, and Mr. Davenport  won.    The salo was soon'effected, A. L.  Davenport,   the   present .manager,"and  Charles   Hussey   of   Spokane   being  the  purchasers, and .:_),(XX) being the price.  Energetic development work wa.s commenced on the mine unci the erection of  the mill begun, this latter improvement  being completed in the spring of ���!.!_' at ii  cost of $15,000. In the- meantime, the  same parties purchased the White-Buchanan claim, which adjoins the Poormau  on the oast, iind five others, making a  group of seven in all.  In 1800 the mill crushed about 000 tons  of ore. which yielded ,J8,t��K). It had to  close down early iu the fall on account of  ii shortage of water, but quite a force of  men were kept iit work ou development  until the Hussey bank failure iit Spokane  iu December, KSSK). The. failure of one of  the Iltisseys, and the many complications  arising therefrom, has. until recently, put  quite a clamper on the working of the  property.' In the spring of 1801 A. L. Davenport assumed charge,as quite an amount  of assessment work had to be done to hold  the claims. Ho only milled fifty tons toward fall, and cleaned up from the same  5.1700. : Last season (1802) he worked 200  tons of ore, which yielded 5,f>000.  A'force of ten men are now working and  the mill has been running for some time,  and will continue as long as the water  supply holds out. so that- thissouson\sout-  puf will swell the grand total to quite a  handsome amount.  The; Hussey interest is now in proper  shape for work to be carried on without  interruption, and the first improvement  will be logo ahead with the lower crosscut funnel, which will iit distance of  KX) feet from the mouth (it now being  in lit) foot) explore the vein to a depth of  .'. '(' feet. This will place in sight enough  ore to run this mill at its present capacity  for several years should the ore body hold  its width and richness.  The 10-stnnip mill is situate in the canyon about a quarter of a mile below the  (irc-house iit the mine. It consists of a  rock breaker, automatic feeders, stamps,  h'rue Viiiiners. These latter are not  . however, as the gold is so free this  in rets are not of sufficient value to  I'or the trouble of concentrating,  ore averages .$20 gold per ton saved,  iind the mill hasa capacity of twenty tons  each twenty-four hours if run steadily.  The motive power is a Pelton water  wheel run by water from Eagle creek.  The power, however, is insufficient, and  no doubt will I .supplanted by something  more certain in the near future. The  owners know tliey have a bonanza, and  t here is no need of them longer delaying  t lie swelling of their bank accounts from a  source which can easily return handsome  and continuous dividends.  There are several gold-bearing lodges iu  that vicinity presenting good showings.  but thev are vol, iu the   hands of men inl  and  used  sul J)  pit \  Tli.

"At no time in the history of the United  "'��� States," says an American paper, ���"has  " there been such ii remarkable team of  ''governors as ,\\ .lite of Colorado. Pen-  '' noyer of Oregon. I .swellyn of Kansas,  '��� Tillman of South Carolina, and Altgeld  "of Illinois. W.iito wants blood up to  " the horses' bridle or free coinage of  "silver; Pennoyer snaps his fingers at  " federal authority iind ".asses'' the pre-  " sident; Lewollyn disbands tho state  ���' militia because it is 'Republican and i-e-  ���' organizes with Populists; Tillman forces  '���' his state into the whisky selling busi-  " noss, and Altgeld pardons the Annr-  '��� ehists."  Jf that paper would  look   back a  lew  years   it would   find   that John   Brown.  William Lloyd  Garrison.   Wendell   Phillips,   and  .Horace Greeley were till  "remarkable" men, in that they advocated  measures that were unpopular with  the  people "who  were   afraid   to  say  aught  against shivery.    So in  nil   times.    I. ven  today there i.s no more bitterly hated man  in   Great  Britain   than   William   l.wtirt  Gladstone,  simply   because  he  favors a  measure that he believes will be of lasting  benelit to his country.    Of the five governors mentioned above, no one of them is  accused of being corrupt: they are merely  accused of acting contrary to tho wishes  of  those  who  opposed   their  election  to  oflice.    Tillman of "South Carolina  led the  Farmers' Alliance party against the .Democratic party and won a victory: hence he  is a "remarkable" man because he acts independently of the Democrats.    Lewellyn  of Kansas is a Populist, and like the members of other  political  parties who have  gained  power, ho is doing   his utmost  to  strengthen  his party  to  the curl that it  can remain in office.    Pennoyer of Oregon  i.s  a  '"remarkable"   man  because  he answered an impertinent message from president Cleveland in words that could not be  misunderstood.     Altgeld    of   Illinois   is  another of these "-remarkable*'  men who  do   their   own   thinking.     .He   pardoned  three men serving life terms in prison because he believed they were wrongly convicted.    W.iife  of Colorado is also  "remarkable"   because   he   would   fight   to  maintain the property rights of the people of his sttite.    If the United States and  Camilla, had more "remarkable" men, like  the     five   lefered   to   in    oflice.   and   a  less number of wooden men who are afraid  to  act  on  their own   responsibility,   the  common people would   have less to complain of and the self-seeking few   would  occasionally be brought up witha round  turn.   DOWN   ON   ROYALTY.  Pronounced "Deadheads" by an Outspoken  Democratic English Newspaper.  The following from a .Loudon newspaper goes to show that royalty i.s not worshipped by all Englishmen. The sizing up  of the members of the reigning family i.s  pretty accurate, if it i.s caustic:  By the time those lines appear the  young lady who, little more than a year  iigo, Wits represented as wailing over the  dead body of her supposed lover, iind  crying, "Oh. Kddio. why don't you come  back to nits"'" will have been married to  the dead young man's brother. The  young woman is said liy reporters to  have looked serious when she emerged on  Tuesday from the house which is provided  for her father out. of public taxes. Well,  we should think she had some reason to  look serious, unless .-ill royal sense of  decency is absolutely exhausted. Many  tens of thousands of snobs tind idlers  have stood in the streets to catch a  glimpses of her or of the duke of Vork,  or of any other of her numerous pensioned relatives. And now let us ask  what wiis if all these people went out  into the streets to see. .Not merely a  bride ami bridegroom, for these can be  seeniin\ day. No. it was to gaze at people  ���who are called royal. For this it i.s that  lunatics have paid ��.'.. ) for a window,  that Loudon lias been iit times rendered  almost impassable during the past week,  that noise and crowds have added to the  daily torments of existence.  Now of old royalty really ruled, and it  wjis natural iit that time tluit people  .should desire to see those who had power  of life and death over them. These hitter  usually vile, cruel, filthy-minded, treacherous;' but they had power���they did  really govern tne affairs of men. The  great discovery of the thing called con  stitutional monarchy i.s supposed to be  that the king or queen does not govern--  i. e.. does not do the thing he or she is  paid for doing. The king or queen  ���'reigns"���i. e.. does nothing iit all except  take the money that i.s voted, and occasionally assist at the laying of a stone or  the opening of a new building. In short,  flie king or queen is. in the expressive  slang of our American friends, a "deadhead"���!, e., one who does not pay i'or his  enjoyment like others, but either begs or  steal's. This is the present condition of  monarchy, so that.the crowds who eame  oiit to see these Guelph people and their  ���connections came out to sec a number of  royal deadheads. We have heard of  great festivals to honor genius, industry,  or achievement; but this festival i.s one  iu honor of idleness, of usolessiicss _ of  people who "consume" without doing  anything.  The general object of the festival being,  therefore,   of  a   thoroughly   vicious   and  evoiiinsane character (for it i.s surely vicious iind insane to honor a useless institution), turn to  the  people honored, to the  royalties   whom   crowds   have stared at.  If kings and queens are useless politically,  the   oiily   possible ground   for   honoring  tlieni would be that they are individually  noble,-groat, and attractive personalities,  whom every riglit-niiiided person would  desire, to imitate.    Is that the cti.se with  these��� people?    Look at them.    Kven from  the point of view of physical  beauty or  handsome appearance it may be doubted  whether a more common-place���wo might  oven say an uglier���gathoriiigcould begot  together.    With the solitary exception of  the'- princess of Wales, who contrives by  artificial   means   to   prolong   the   beauty  with which nature endowed her, there is  not ii good-looking person in the whole lot  ���a remarkable fact in  Jt  city  so full of  good-looking women iind girls as London..  There i.s not a shop in Oxford street the  young  lady  assistants of wliich are not  immeasurably  better   looking   than   the  duke of Teek's daughter, not to speak of  the very plain and heavy-looking women  whom  queen   Victoria i.s responsible  for  having brought into the world.    Jt is extraordinary that the pretty girls of London'should' turn out to cheer a bride "who  is distinctly plain to say the least.   As for  cho-bridegroom, there is scarcely a young  fellow to be  found playing cricket on ji  summer evening in Victoria or Batterseu  park who is not his physical superior from  every point of view.   But it i.s moral qualities," wo are told, rather than mere outward   beauty,  which should count.    We  quite agree;   and  how   do these   people  show up from that point of view*'   It will  generally be admitted that the prince of  Wales does not shine as a moral character.  The turf, the divorce court, the gambling  hell  are  not  places  where  men of high  character are  usually seen;   but  we  in-  stjintly  think  of   .such  places  when   we  thiul. "of the prince of Wales.   The queen  herself i.s of a  very retiring and apparently   misanthropic   character.     Of   her  private  life  nothing scarcely  is  known.  But she has one vice of a, peculiarly repellent chartictei���she is mejin and  greedy  to a degree quite abnormal; iind rlo what  we  will, we  find   it  impossible   to   love  mejin    and ' greedy  people..   The   duke  of   Edinburgh   is "said" to   inherit   from  his   mother   (possibly   from   his   father,  too,   who   wjis    a    "close"    man)    this  repulsive     trait     of     character.      The  bride's father is a  bankrupt,, or Avas so,  until  put on his legs again, and his appearance suggests "high living .-and -plain  thinking"   tis   haying .characterized   his  career.    His wife is remarkably stout, but  we know nothing more of her except the  fact that.she poses a.  a  philanthropist,  and-"we have generally found by experience that .philanthropists: are very undesirable  people  to  have, anything to  do  with.    The extreme greed  of  the  bride  and  bridegroom  may be  inferred   from  the fact that, tit this period of depression  and  widespread distress,   they have .accepted .presents to -the-amount of ��� more  than ii quarter of a million sterling, more  than  1200 in number and filling twenty  vans.   This i.s not the kind of thing tluit  good and lovable people would be likely  to do, especially jis many of these presents have been paid for by forced contributions from   poor   people.   A.s   for  the  other royal persons, they tire too insignificant to   be considered, unless Ave count  the duke of   Cambridge,   anrl,  tis  he   is  chiefly noted ' for love of lucre, we regret  that we cannot, class him among those  who are the moral stilt of the earth.    It-  appears,, therefore, that these people are  not strong  in   high   or   noble character,  'that they are distinctly weiik  from the  moral   point of   view.    It  has been   attempted to be shown tluit some members  of tins family are  very remarkable from  the.intcllecst.mil pointed' view. The queen,  in particular, i.s creelitetl by some persons'  who did not know her with a mind rival-  ling that of Newton or Sluikespearo, and  with an  artistic gift resembling tliat of  Raphael or Titian.    Unfortunately there  is  no evidence  of the fact,  and   we are  obliged   to be as sceptical as to the intellectual  as   we  are   to   the   moral endowments of   this  family..   Tliey   have  produced nothing-except a perfect swarm of  people who have  to  lie pairl for and kejjt  going   by   the   public.    Croat  intellect is  never barren���it is bound to create; Jinrl  therefore we are sorry to be compelled to  deny   striking    intellectual   qualities   to  these royal   persons.    It appears, therefore, that they have no personal  characteristics  to be admired or loved by any  human being.    And since they tire npt attractive  or  commanding  in  themselves,  and  that thoy do nothing in the way of  government,   we  must  again   ask   what  jeople  who  have  been  gazing on  them  lave gone out to see?   The reply   i.s  obvious   and   inevitable:   the  people have  been gazing on a useless, costly sham.

A most interesting lawsuit has just,  taken place in I .iris, which has terminated  in the sentence of a gang of blackmailers  to forms of imprisonment ranging from  ton to two years. It seems that some time  ago the vice-admiral countde iMarqucssac,  in writing to a person with whom he had  no business to be in correspondence, referred to the minister of marine, his  superior oflicer, a.s "ime viisille bete,"  which may be translated as "an old fool."  This, a.s well <*is two or throe other letters  of the same tenor, fell into tho hands of a.  gang of blackmailers, who forthwith proceeded to extort money from the old  admiral under the threat of publishing  the contents of these letters in some of the  opposition papers. Thojidinii.il, who held  at the time the position of perfect or  naval governor-general of the maritime  district of Lorient. realized that if the  letters containing the uncomplimentary  references towards the minister wore published he would inevitably lose not only  liis oflice but also his prospects of promotion. Nearly ^20.000 did he pay to the  gang for the sake of securing the return  of his unfortunate correspondence, and it  wjis not until he found that he could pay  no more that he decided to appeal to the  police for assistance, ami not before he  had made a clean breast of this affair to  the minister of marine, who was one of  his old messmates jukI who took-the matter as a great practical joke, being especially tickled iit the'idea that the admiral,  who i.s a grand officer of the Legion of  Honor and renowned as one of tho strictest disciplinarians in the. French navy,  had found it so expensive to refer to him  as an old fool.  TIIE  Kelly Sectional Boiler.  (Patents- applied for in Canada iind U.S.)  CHEAP  HEAVIEST  SECTION  170  POUNDS.

Only those commanding corps and divisions have posts from which to survey a  battlefield while the fight is on. If the  lighting is furious all along the line, even  the general in command may not be able  to take in over half a mile of front,. One  may have been in a do/.en battles without  witnessing ni.ore than the niaiueitvers of  a brigade. Battles usually end in withdrawal and pursuit. In either ease nearly  all the troops- on both sides- are set in  motion, and so men who have been fighting all day inarch away and see only the  dead and wounded in their front. But  very few wounded are brought in by  night, and tiie tlead can wait for the sun  to rise. To move about on the field at  night is to take your life in your hand.  There are ghouls robbing the dead who  ���will fire'upon you, and there are wounded  men who "will treat you as a ioe. There  are riderless horses galloping about,  -while others, maddened witli the pain of  ���wounds, will rush at you open mouthed  from the darkness.  It is  when morning conies again that  those left behind to bring in the wounded,  bury the dead and collect the equipments  scattered over miles oi ground .perhaps  can see and  fully realize how fierce and  'deadly the fighting was.   The  (lead  are  not ail on the battle lines.    Here, where  the  reserves   were posted, a   mile in the  rear, are   the   first   of   them.    They tire  lying  in  heaps, and in nearly every case  the face is covered.by poncho or blanket.  Down  this front of a mile in length we  find a dead man here and there as we advance, sometimes two or three together,  but there are no wounded.    They were removed under fire.    Half a mile in rear of  the battle line we come upon the first of  tins men killed by the musket fire.    They  Avere not really under fire, but acting as  ..upports, and yet the ranks  lost heavily.  It is curious to note the positions of the  dead where the bodies have not been  interfered with.    Nine out of ten are lying  broad   on   their   backs   with   arms   outstretched.     Their   feet   tire   pointed    all  around  the compass,   but more  of them  lie with their heads to the east than in any  other   direction.   The   men   shot in   the  liead are lying at full length; those below  the neck have one leg drawn up, and their  fingers are clinched.    There is not on any  face what you would call a look of pain or  anguish, and  neither do you find smiles  nor placidity.    Look into the faces of 100  men killed iii battle, and you will find the  same general expression, whether old or  young'.    It is a look of surprise and  fear.  This look rests on the luces of men  killed  in their tracks, a.s it were.    The mortally  wounded man may turn on his side to die,  and you may find him with a smile on his  face.  He has had time to breathe a prayer;  to think of wife and children and home;  to realize that liis hour has come.  The battle line runs across a highway,  over an old cotton field, across a meadow  and into the woods. The men nia.de  breastworks of rails and dirt. At one  spot they had the cover of a stone wall, at  another'the banks of a winding creek.  Here was a. brigade without the slightest  cover, rushed in to hold a gap in the line.  The dead and wounded 'lioj.ju.st a.s they  fell���five dead to one wounded. The  enemy used grape and canister from a  battery planted on the ridge, and the missiles did terrible execution. Here along  the breastworks the troops were lying  down and fired from that position.  Nearly every dead man still rests at full  length on his stomach, though their laces  seem half buried in the grass. iUnny of  the muskets still rest across the breastworks. Here for .00 feet we cannot find  a wounded num. Most of the dead were  struck in the face or throat.  With his back to the wall sits ti dead  man who probably lived an hour or two  nflei he was hit.

A solatium might; afterwards be  provided for the unsuccessful gold-seekers  by a deluge of silver and bronze coins  produced in one day at the mint.  The year's work resulted in the coining  of more than 8. million pieces of gold,  silver, and bronze. Of tliese 07 millions  were passed as good and 10 millions were  rejected on account of inaccurate weight  or other defects. Thus the number of  coins rejected amounted to nearly 20 per  cent, or one-fifth of the total number  struck. This surprisingly large number  of faulty coins i.s flue to the very small  limits of weight variation allowed by the  Coinage Act. The value of these masses  of coined lucre added uj) to the respectable sum of.425,000,000,  with Rotlirock aud the revival of her love  for him, lie was 'Magnanimous enough to  release her from her promise to become  his wife, she would return and marry her  lover..

Here and there may be a living man, but nineteen out of twenty perished last night.   They fought each other  for the water, but only the first comers  quenched their thirst.

What would Robert Burns have said if  he had heard the grovelling,.sycophantic,  lying speech of the .convener of Ayrshire  comity council? And delivered in the  'poet's favorite town of Ayr! It wa.s, of  course, a speech in moving congratulations to the queen, etc., iu connection  witli the York-Teak marriage. '"The engagement," said the audacious man, ''was  one which had ereatrd great interest in  the country, tind was very popular among  all ranks of society. Our. royal family  were constantly engaged in doing beneficent and philanthropic work, and he  thought it was only right that we should  show deep sympathy with them in their  joys a.s well as their sorrows." How the  poet would have lashed the sycophant!  Hut we understand it all. It is a capital  advertisement for 31 r. Convener, who is  doubtless dying for an empty title. What  a pity he-'didn't trot out a little statement of the "beneficent and philanthropic work" referred to! Costless Indian shawls and telegrams of moneyless  sympathy arc all I know of in the way o"  royal "pliilanthropy." Probably Mr  vener has private information  subject.  Co lion   the  Tons of Gold.  Only '"5N.{ tons of gold were last year  turned into sovereigns and half sovereigns at the royal mint! As regards silver,  210 tons were melted down and cast into  bran new coins, and the mere trifle of il  tons of bronze was usod in 1X02 to keep up  tiie supply of pence and half-pence, and  farthings: while four of copper were  required for alloy purposes.  The deputy minister of the mint casually mentions these and otlier astounding  facts in his report just issued. What  enormous wealth Great Britain must possess when new gold coins are turned out  at the rate of nearly one ton per day. and  what a magnificent scramble might be  witnessed if once a year say on the  queen's birthday-   this ton of bright sov-  How British Columbia's Pioneer Farmer Lost  a Bride.  "The newspapers have printed the news  of the death of old John Sanderson, the  pioneer  farm  settler of  the British Columbia coast, but somehow none of them  has referred to his strange life romance,"  says   William JMachaughliu. a   long-time  resident of Vancouver's island, to a  New  Vork Sun reporter.    "I  know Sanderson  well, and  have heard him tell the story  more  than once, although  there was an  incident in it of which he was ashamed,  and he always referred to it with regret.  ���'Sanderson was it native of tho Scotch  Hebrides.    When he was between thirty-  five and forty he fell in love with a young  girl not yet sixteen.   The girl's mime was  i'hirgaret Findlay.   She accepted Sanderson's attentions anrl they became engaged,  but a dash ing young fellow, a sailor, named  George Rotlirock, ca.me into the locality  where they'liverl, and won the girl's heart  a.way from the plodding farmer, Sanderson.    It happened that  the  latter knew  that Rotlirock had at one time in his life  been  engaged  in   smuggling.     Smarting  under the loss of his intended bride, Sanderson   laid   information   of   Rothrock's  crimes before the authorities of the island.  In some way the young sailor received  warning that he had  been betrayed, and  lie escaped from the islands just in time.  "Me. was extremely popular, and when  it came out tluit .John Sanderson was the  person, who had  informed   on   him   the  people  generally  made  it so unpleasant  for Sanderson  that he resolved to  emigrate to the  I'acific coast,  news of  the  discovery of  gold  in  California  having  reached that out-of-the-way corner of the  earth.    Before going,  however, he  married   out   of   pique  a   Avoinan   who  had  always been the especial aversion of the  Findiay'girl, but as the hitter was almost  heartbroken over the loss of her young  sailor lover,   this   marriage   of   her   old  lover was far from having- the effect;on  her that Sanderson had intended.  ���'This was early in 1851. Sanderson and  his bride reached San Francisco after a  voyage of eight months. The outlook  there did not suit Sanderson, and. hearing  that there were rich agricultural lands'in  British territory further northward along  the coast, he and his wife continued their  journey thither. They settletl in the fertile valley south of Fort Langley, and by  the time the gold excitement had broken  out in British Columbia in 1858 Sanderson  had a splendid farm. He stuck to his  farm through all the gold fever, and by  supplying mining camps and immigrant  trains with produce had made a large fortune when his wife rlietl in 1801, leaving  him several children. He remained a  widower for ten years, adding to his  wealth, and then he made.up his mind to  have tu Hither wife, and that lie would like  her to come from his old island home off  the barren'coast of Scotland.  "He had a sister there and lie wrote to  her, asking her to look about and try to  get him a suitable person for a wife.  Margaret Findlay still lived at Sanderson's okl home, very poor and still unmarried. She had never heard of her  lover Rotlirock since he fled the islands  twenty years before. Sanderson's sister  went to her, told her the word she had received from her brother and gave her the  first chance of his offer. .Margaret, weary  of it life of toil, consented to become her  old lover's second wife if he so wished.  Sanderson's sister sent that word to her  brother on the other side of the world,  and it pleased him. He replied to that  effect iind sent money to pay Margaret  Findlay's passage to his home on the I'ar  Pacific coast.  "Margaret arrived in San Francisco in  the fall of 1872. While waiting there for  the steamer on which she was to proceed  up the coast.she heard her mime called.  Looking- up in surprise she sawmill recognized in spite of the changes of twenty  years her fugitive lover, George Rotlirock.  The old love for him. never dead, burned  anew on the instant, iind the meeting was  mutually happy. Rotlirock had been  leading the life of a minor in California,  a.iid had accumulated considerable money,  and Wiis even then making arrangements  to return to Scotland. He wanted Margaret to become his wife iit once, but she  replied that her duty would not permit  her to do so. She had given her promise  to John Sanderson. He was expecting  Ker. She would go to him. If after she  had told Jiiin of her unexpected  meeting  "The Result of a Deep-Laid Plot."  A New Vork paper prints whitt it claims  is ii, copy of the confidential circular letter  distributed by the leaders of the Irish revolutionary  party in  America among  its  friends,   felicitating   them   upon   the  destruction of the British warship Victoria,  and claiming that the supposed accident  Wits the result of a deep-laid  plot on the  part of the physical force party iu Ireland,  which  contemplates  the destruction,   if  possible, of the whole  British navy and  the infliction of dire injury on l.ngland in  every quarter of the globe where her flag  flies.    The following are quotations from  fciie alleged  letter:     "Admiral Tryon  is  not guilty for the loss of the Victoria, he  is the victim of the sins of his country.  The  maucuuvre  which   he   proposed   the  fleet should perform would ha.ve been successfully curried out had our brave brothers in Fngland's service not been epual to  the opportunity afforded them and given  themselves a- willing sacrifice for thecause  of Ireland.    For the  better protection of  the interests we have tit heart we will not  announce whether any of our  brothers  who were ou board the Victoria escaped  death in the wafers of _hoMediterranean.  It is suflicient for you, for the present, to  know  that a   noble deed  has been   done  iind that Ireland still has sons for whom  death litis no-terrors when  their lives are  asked    for   her   sake.     We   have   sworn  brothers now on  almost every warship,  and wherever the lOngiish flag f'loats there  also may our men be found.    We are now  in ;i  position   which   we never before attained of striking Fngland in every corner of the globe.    Thence forward, brothers, the light must go on unceasingly.  No  opportunity must   be be  lost in striking  England,  nor  must   we   hesitate  to use  against her whatever science and inventive genius may place in our hands."  Finest Mansion in Great Britain.  The  rebuilding of  Mount Stuart,  lord  Bute's   palace,   near  Rothsay,  Scotland,  makes it the most magnificent mansion in  Great Britain.   The base of the building  covers a fraction more than an acre, and  is built in a mediaeval gothic style of the  thirteenth century.     The  walls,   turrets  and  balconies are built* of  the beautiful  varigated  granites and sandstones from  Kirkcudbrightshire, and floors and arches  being  of clouded   Italian   marbles.     The  main hall i.s constructed entirely of alabaster, the support,  being columns of oxidised brass and bronze.   The gallery and  grand  staircase are of marbles brought  from Sicily and   Carrara.   The drawing  rooms  are paneled with alternate strips  of cherry, walnut,   and   ebony, all  from  America.    The main dining room, wliich  was built as to accommodate 280 guests, is  finished-.after  the style of the drawing  rooms, with the exception of relief figures  and  mosaics of fish, game, .animals,, etc.  The   ceilings   anrl  chimney-pieces of   all  these rooms are most artistic, and so also  are the windows, mantels, and doors, the  work of which are extremely elaborate.  There are three immense libraries and a  billiard room, all-with-carved.stone fireplaces  of antique-design.     In   one  wing  there are Turkish and .swimming baths,  large conservatories, aviaries,-aquariums,  etc.    The whole palace is heated throughout with stoiini and  hot witter pipes iind  lighted  by both gas iind electricity.

The Majestic-, mention oi  which was made last week, is not far  distant, and the Koya.l Canadian, a fairly  well developed prospect, i.s its near neighbor. Between Forty-nine and Sandy  creeks, the latter a st.reaiii nearer .'elson  than Bugle creek, are many quart/, veins  of various widths, isome of which are quite  high-grade in free gold. There is tin  opening in that section for an enterprising man to makea hit. that is. by erecting a custom mill on tho bank of the Koot-  cnav river, so as to treat the ores from  these claims at so much per ton.  Ore from several of these claims has  been worked at the I'oorinan mill, and  the amount-saved has demonstrated that  III. v are valuable: hut from the fact that  the'ore had lo be packed to the mill, tho  lest wits expensive. The country is not a  diHieult one in which Lo construct roads to  the difl"ore-ill claims.' If a mill were placed  on Lhe river bank, Lhe freighting of ores  to it would be an easy mailer.  The country fornialion is granite, and  the veins have a northeast and southwest trend, dipping easterly.  THIS     WEEK'S    NEW    ADVERTISEMENTS  ('raliam <.*.

Trial Shipment.  .'��� Tlie lessees of the No. I mine at Ainsworth will niake a trial shipment of forty  tons of ore from tJiat inine to the Taeoma  smelter. The ore is of .four grades,  namely, first-class, carbonates, and high-  grade and second-grade concentrates, leu  tons each. The lirst-class ore should go  20U ounces to the ton, the carbonates 1_()  ounces, the high-grade concentrates .50  ounces, and the second-grade 150 ounces.  Home twenty men are .kept at work, and  if a co 11 contra tor wa.s only erected on the  property, the mine could be worked to  advantage even at the present price of  silver. As it is, however, the expenses of  hand sorting and jigging makes the total  so high that there is iittle left to the  lessees. The ore will go out by way of  Jioniier's Ferry on the . late of Idaho.  A Contention Amicably Settled.  The contention between the owners of  the Big Bertha and J.on Ton claims in  Slocan district has been settled by making  a survey of the claims. The work done  was on the Jion Ton ground and the ore  extracted will go to the owners of that  claim. The lion Ton owners will pay for  the work and for transporting the ore to  Jvaslo. Some six or seven tons of ore tluit  will go $500 to the ton are at Kaslo a waiting shipment to the smeller. The owners  of Lhe Bon Ton are \\\ II. Krandon, M. I'.  Adams, and captain Adams.

American Bills to be Discounted.  .Both the banks at Xelson have decided  to discount American piiper money . per  cent after the 15th iii'-Uinl. The reasons  given are that there is so much .American  money in circulation that the bills of the  two banks remain in the vaults, instead  of being in circulation, and that there is  little demand for drafts on points in the  I'nited States. American silver will be  taken at par, as heretofore. This action  will not tend to drive out American bills j  ��� only Lend to keep them in circulation.  People will carry them in their pockets  and not. deposit them in the banks. The  Canadian I'acific will accept all kinds of  American money at par. as will tliat  other great corporation, the Kootenay  Lake Telephone Company. Limited. The  merchants have not yet decided what  they will do; bill they will probably take  any kind of money they can get at par--  a.nd be glad to get it.  A Promising-   Location   on   House.    Lake.  The most authentic news of a lind in  the Duncan Biver country i.s that furnished by ���"Dick" b'allop of . Balfour, who  has spent some time prospecting along  the shores of Monser hike. Last month  he ran across good looking ground at a  point six miles above Duncan City and  back from the lake about a. mile and a  half. On prospecting it he found three  parallel veins, one of them fully twenty  feet wide, the otlier two being belweun  eight and ten feet. The ledges appear to  be well delined, stratus of clay lying between the vein mattei and the walls.  Tlio large ledge was crosscut ih throe  -places, showing the ore body to be nt  least twelve feet wide. Picked specimens  of the ore assayed all the way from 500 to  000 ounces in silver, and samples carefully  taken ran from 02 to 108 ounces. A tunnel was run in on the big ledge for twenty  feet without using powder, so easy is the  vein matter to u-ork. TJie ground is  about 000 feet higher than the lake and  is easily readied with pack animals.  The Nelson & Fort Sheppard.  Chief engineer Roberts of the Nelson &  Fort Sheppard was iu Nelson the fore  part of the week. He says the1 work of  grading is progressing satisfactorily, and  that traeklaying will be continuous once  suflicient material can begot to the front.  The grading is practically completed to  the crossing of the North Fork, thirty  miles from Nelson. At that p<>int a. I0OU-  foot siding will be put in. Larson cv.
