Confidence  has  taken wings  because (key who hn've money are fearful  lest industi y, struggling   under   lhe burden of  diminishing  values on   all its products and   (he sharp appreciation   of its  debts, will be unable longer Lo endure the  si rain.  To relieve (his strain, to readjust conditions so (hat induslry and capita! will  not both sink in the panic that is threatening the entire world, has become tiie  solemn duly of higher statesmanship.  Moio than iOJ years ago lhe founders of  (his government, with the far reaching  vision of a prophet sitting on the heights  of the earl h. made wise provision for just  Tlie   Sherman   Act   Not   Responsible   I'or   the  Present Money Stringency.  Spokane Review: If debt and credit  had never been called into'existence, the  money, i pies tion would not be of such trail-'  scene lei it .importance. Kor values would  adjust Lhemselves in a measure, aud the  contraction of the currency would, not  bringso large a host of evils as now attend iu its train. We should still have the  evil (hat goes with an effort to move expanding crops with a contracting medium,  ami the injustice of dear money ami clieap  products, but', we should be exempt from  lho but den thai, is imposed by indexible  debts and a contracting currency.  lint debt, and credit are two institutions  (bat cannot be abolished. They are on  earth t-o stay, and the records id'the census office show that the tendency is  more toward their expansion here in the  United Slates. Farms, homes, railroads,  towns, school districts, counties, states;  and the nation itself are mortgaged.  These obligations must be met, fairly and  justly. They must be liquidated upon the  basis'upon which they were contracted.  That is a proposition which the Anierican  sense of fairness will easily support. The  (rouble begins when the men who bear  these burdens of debt are called upon to  perform the impossible; when they are  asked to sell fhe fruits of (heir labor at  tlie actual cost of production, to produce  (lie elements of wealth iu falling value  and meet the bond with gold coin that is  yearly becoming more valuable and difficult to obtain.  To rebuke these? people because they  have gone into debt is (o rebuke the  nation nnd condemn ourselves. To fell  them to go Lo work and pay their debts is  fo add insult to injury. Many of them  have been deprived of Lhe means of working. The silver mines have been closed  down and Lhe industries ol Lhe country  are everywhere being curtailed. For  thousands of willing wage earners there  is no work. For (he farmer and the wool-  grower   there   is   work   enough;   but   no  such an emergency. The framers of Lhe  coii'-litut ion declared that it should he  among the powers of congress "to coin  money and regulate the value thereof."  There' never was a time iu oiie history  of the nation when it was more important  that congress should assert this power,  and meet its constitutional duty. Coin  money and regulate the value thereof���  the power of the constitution, tlie proper  function of .government. That is what  congress ought to do, instead of taking  the advice of Henderson, Carlisle, and  Cleveland, to destroy money already  coined, borrow gold money iu Kuropc.  and allow.'Lombard street to regulate the  value thereof.  If the right .spirit and purpose dominated the congress and the. administration of the United-States, the fulfillment  of this duty would be merely a matter of  detail. The ratio could readily be readjusted. A. little less gold in the yellow-  dollar, a little more silver in the white,  would quickly and safely cut the (lordian  knot, "'industry, relieved of the frightful  burdens now crushing if into Che earth,  would go forward with renewed hope,  and capital, assured of a just return and  prompt payment at maturity, would take  on new confidence. Cold would cease to  hide away, the silver mines would turn  out a. safe .and stimulating stream of new-  currency on a safe ratio, and the shadows  now.darkening the land and filling every  heart with fear and doubting*, would  vanish iu a day.'  Learned His Future Wife's Name.  1 le was a cha tty kind of a. conjurer, says  London Tit-Bits, and wasanxious to open  the evening's entertainment, merrily. So  lie stepped forward to the front of the  stag,! and said: "Ladies and gentlemen,  if I here is in (lie audience any young man  who would like to know the name of his  ful are wife, if that young man will kindly  stand up I will undertake (o (ell him. and  (his is no guessing competition. Now,  will any single man kindly stand up?"  Up jumped a young man   in   the center,  of tin' room.  ������'rhank you." said the conjurer. "Now.  do you wish to know the name id'your future wife ?"  "I do." said ihe young man.  ���*\\rell." said the man of magic, "I always like Lo do things in a proper business  fashion. Will you kindly give ine your  name?"  "Ves. certainly." said the young man:  "my name is .James Jackson."  "Thank you." replied the ��� conjuror:  "(hen the name of your future wife will  be .Mrs. .Jackson."  A Smelter Man's Opinion.  C. (.��. ('riffith of Helena. .Montana, is in  Nelson. As Mr. ('riflilh is the.representative of a smelting company operating  smelters at Fast Helena and Croat Falls.  Montana, he is in a position to give the  views of smelting men on the silver ques-  fion. lie says both his company's smelters are running on stocks on hand before  Lhe drop in price, but that the loss was  (piite heavy, a.s the smelting companies  throughout the United Slates did not  expect that the drop would Lake place  until congressional aclion was taken.  Speaking of this particular se.-tion. Mr.  ('riflilh said that our mines could be  worked a fa profit even if the silver iu the  ore was given away; that the ore contained a high percentage of lead, and that  lead must advance in price leal least U  cents a jiound:  AN   HONEST   MAN   DEAD.  Eriel   Sketch   oi'  John   L.   Seaton,   Or.e  oi' Llie  Difjuoverer:; oi- l.lio Slocan  District.  John   L.   Seaton. who  died   in  Spokane  recent ly. was born   near  Knoxviile. Tennessee, in   l.S.I.S.    When  a mere youth   he  left home and went lo Colorado, w here hi'  worked iu the mines for several years, becoming an expert practical miner.    From  Colorado he went;  to Molilalia ;   (hence to  (he Uo'iir d'AIenes.    Four years  ago   he  came fo Ainsworth. a nd i'or a while worked  in the Skyline shaftas Liuibernian.  In Lhe  fall of ISOI. in company with KM Carpenter  he made a prospecting trip 11 j > !\.a*-lo river.  The result of thai, trip was   the discovcry  of what is  believed  lobe the   richest silver-lead   mining region  in  America,     lie  and   Carpenter  located  Hie  Payne claim,  on what is  now evil led   Payne   mountain.  The  "float." on   whicli   Lhe location   was  made, was assayed at Ainsworth. and the  returns were so much higher than the ore  from that camp that two parties started  back   to  make ot her  locations.    One was  headed   by  Seaton. and   was   made up of  ** liill "   Hennessey.   "Jack"    Hennessey.  '"Jack " McOuignn. and Frank   Flint:   the  other was made up of Carpenterand 14. A.  lieiienberg.      The     Seaton     party    took  the    Kaslo   river    route: the    C'aipeulcr  party   went  iu   by   the   way   of   S.'ocan  river.    The   Seaton    party   reached    the  the ground  first, and before (heir return  discovered   what   is now  known   as   the  Noble  Five group "of mines.    Mr. Seaton  sold several of his interests, and did  but  little work afterwards on the group which  is still, mainly, iu  the hands of  the original   locators.      This   spring   a   younger  brother   came  out  from  Tennessee,   but  died  within   two month::.    His body was  taken back to Tennessee for burial by Mr.  Seaton.  who.  being a. sick   man   hiinsell.  went   thence   to  Hot Springs.   Arkansas,  for relief.    lie remained  there six weeks,  and then came back to Spokane.    .A shorl  t.ime afterwards he had to take to his bed.  and death ensued in ten days:  the cause  general debility.    He had every care that  medical skill could suggest.    His remains  were   buried    at    Oreenwood    cemetery.  Spokane,   but"   will   be   removed   to Tennessee   in  the  fall.    He leases  a   mother  and   several  irolhers aud .-islers. one  brother now being in Jvaslo looking after  his property interests. Ilis partners  speak of Kim as a. kind-hearted and honest  man. >     . . . .  Work Resumed on the Poorman.  Work has been 'commenced "ill earnest  on the Poorman, a gold property situated  about six miles west of Nelson and about  a.mile'from Ivootenay river. This property is owned by the Kagle Creek Gold  Mining-Company and has not been worked  to any extent since the fall of ISOO. The  lO-stamp mill.wliich the company built at  theiniue was completed early iu thespring  of the above year, a nd started to crush ore  about the first of June. The mill was operated during that season with considerable prolit to its owners, but owing to the  failure, of the Spokane National Bank���.  Chai lei-i Hussoy being a heavy stockholder  in both enterprises- the mine and mill  closed down. From that time to the present date there ..has beenonly a few hundred tons of ore milled.  "Link" Davenport came iu on Sunday's  boat with the intention of-.putting men to  work the property. To this end he hasat  present ten men at work in the mine taking out ore besides those engaged in operating the mill. It is understood work will  be pushed and the mill run day and night  in order to take advantage of high water,  as then-supply gets rather low later iu the  fall. The mill is capable of handling 20  tons of ore every 2-1 hours, whicli yields  an a vera geo fa bout $20 free gold tot he ton.  Wagon Road Men Paid Oil'.  Mr. Fit/.slubbs and Mr. Coepel of the  government oflicc were at Kaslo the fore  part of the week paying off the men who  had been at work ou the Kaslo-Slocan  wagon road. After lhe pay-rolls wet e  settled, (here remained but $:!!()() of (I e  $10,000 set apart for that road. The remainder of the money will be expondid  by the government inidiM* I he superintendence of Archibald Cameron, who Icl'l  Kaslo ou Thursday to look the groin.d  over. The road is completed, practically,  to Watson, twenty miles from Kaslo. and  will be finished through l.o Now Denver, a  further distance of ten miles, if money  can be procured. The road is a vevy good  one. and if dry weather should once set in.  it could be kept in good eondit ion at small  expense. At present, owing to confiiuu.us  and heavy rains, the road is bad in plai es.  The differences between the Kaslo Wagon  Road Committee and fhe govermiu nt  have been adjusted, and the committee  now consider themselves relieved from  all responsibility a responsibility that  brought no other reward than constant'  worry.    The Salmon River Placers.  Now that silver has slumped in pi ice.  prosjicclors are turning t heiral (ention to  the gold-bearing sections of West Kootenay. and considerable attention is being  given to Salmon river aud its tributaries.  As that stream heads less than ten miles  south of Nelson, the country is easily accessible. Quf-fce a number oi' prospector-  are already in that Held and more going  iu daily. Some good ground has lately  been discovered ou the south fork of I in*  river.

TBYOM'S   BRILLIANT   TACTICS.  DiiKhig1  Hi.'j   Opponents in   the Manoeuvres in  18Sa.  The lale vice-admiral sir (Ieorge Tryou's  reputation   for being   perhaps   the ablest  tactieian iu the liritish   navy was  gained  by him as the result of the   liritish naval  miiiKi'uvres of ISSS.    Tryon during Lhe*--e  inano'iivrcs   was a rear-admiral   in rank.  Ho had associated   with him  as second in  command   rear-admiral    iioberl,   O Hrien  Fil'/.roy.    To Tr.yon was assigned by order  of Lhe Mrilish  admiralty   Lhe work of attacking (hg coast of Croat, liritain.    I''or a  period   of nearly   thirty days he was  regarded as  Kngiand's foe. and the manner  iu   which   the   doughty   Tr.yon   swooped  down first on one and  then another lirit-  i.-.li port made  it apparent that  in actual  warfare he would have been little lesssiic-  ce.-*->ful. Admiral Tr.yon was opposed in  Lhe ISSS rua.nseavres by a big Hrili.-ii defense fleet commanded by vice-adinii-ai  Jolii'i Iv. 10. iiaird. whose second iu command was rear-admiral Charles J. ilowley.  I'eiore lhe ISSS maiio'ii vres emled Tryim  had captured and levied ou neariy every  principal port in Scotland and ihe east  coast of Lagiand. Kven Liverpool was  entered b\�� his vessels, wliile li.iird was  searching i'or him somewhere off Land's  Knfl. IL was only Lhe shoiiiie-is of the  iiiamcuvies ihnl kept Tryon out of the  Thames. Among many liritish officers  tho opinion was held after the niaiueu vves  that had Tryon been granted an additional  10-day period he would have been heard  discharging his main battery broadsides  below ijoaclon bridge. As it was. the  frantic efforts ofadmiral Maird to overhaul Tryon in the latler's work of dcsirue-  lion around tJie United Kingdom earned  for him. inside of a fortnight after the  nianu'i'vers opend up. the sobrapiet of  "poor Baird. "  'fhe liritish naval maiio'iiveis of ISSS  were, perhaps, the mosL important, series  oi'operalions taken by liritish naval forces  since the advent of modern battleships.  The British admiralty endeavored lo ite-  termine by them the actual effectiveness  of the JJritish naval deleuse sys em when  Lho enemy engaged was represented by a  iiectof powerful warships. This was the  real object, and back of il all the admiralty wished Lo learn just how sa fe -was  Loudon. To carry out Lhe scheme of the  nianojuvei's Tryon was sent with a fleet  Co the xve��t coast of Ireland. Lie took  pos.-ie.-sion of i'ne port of .Hearha veil, in  iiaiiLry bay. on the southWest coast ami  Lough Swilly on the north coast. Ail  Irish territory was considered hostile to  the liritish ileet aud friendly to the  ���enemy: while ail Kngland, '-Vales, and  Scotland were considered friendly to the  liritish ileet antl hostile to the enemy.  Under admiralty directions, it was arranged tliat war should break out at noon  on July 2-lth, ISSS. and last until noon on  August 20th. At the outset the efforts of  admirals Baird and Rowley were concentrated on keeping Tryon and Kit/.royshut  up in port. "They failed signally. Both  Tryon and his second broke the blockade  on August' -Inh. and swooping around the  extremities "of"' Ireland 'made a descent- at  once on British commerce anil British  ports. The liritish fleet .'arrayed against  Tryon embraced 20 'warships and 12 torpedo boats. The licet under Tryon and  Fit/Joy comprised the Hercules, _ Ajax,  Hero, iviipert, Warspite. Severn, Volage.  Iris. Cossack. Sandfly, liodney. Devastation, Invincible,'.Black Prince, Ainphion.  Calypso, Serpent. Curlew, and Spider.  Tiie two s-piadrons included 7 battleships of the first-class. Oof tliesecoud. and  ,.*i of the third: '���> armored cruisers. II  cruisers of Lhc second-class and 0 of the  third class: .") torpedo vessels and 21 first-  class torpedo boats. These Lwo fleets carried -l'J2 heavy guns. 2IS rapid lire gnus and  jl)7 machine guns.  From July 2-lth to August :\vd, Tryon's  squadrons were kept in port umiei secret  admiralty orders. The object of this was  to test i-ho.ellicieiicy of liaird's- blockade,  and at the same time gave officers a ml men  experience iu blockade work. On the  night of August -"Inl. however, with  Baird's squadron encircling ISautrybny.  Tryon ra n out two small squadrons. Tlie  Win-spite.

Premier Davie has returned  to Victoria from Ottawa, whither  he went on  business relative  to the construction    of    the     road.      lie   says    he  has seen lo   it that the   interests of  the  proivnee will be protected, and  that the  construction   of   the   road   will   be   commenced before long.    From other sources  it  is   learned   that   work  will   commence  about August  1st.    There is  a   report in  circulation that the Canadian Pacilic will  build   from Nelson to Five-Mile point, and  that   the  Nelson   &   Fort Sheppard -will  come  into Nelson  over that track, using  lhe depot ami   terminal  grounds of   the  Columbia A:   Kootenay.

It was a pair of "dudes" who had  been  to I'ktrope, and they, were conversing in a  New Vork horse car. much to the delectation of the other passengers.  "Things are awful stupid here." remarked one. " Hvery thing's so new. you  know: nothing to .see."  Here the other passengers-smiled audibly, apparently -at .something outside the  window, and one old fanner laughed outright. The dude: who,.had spoken looked  around in mild surprise, and then continued:'  ������It's a terrible bore for a fellow lo be  compelled to stay here. People are so uncouth and sometimes absolutely rude. I  think- I shall go over again, pretty soon,  to be where there is something, .vou  know: and Where a man can ha voa chance  fo spend his money."  Here the old farmer laughed aloud again  and (he rest of the passengers appeared  to enjoy something too. The laugh of the  farmer seemed so pointed, that the dude  turned to him and said :  "Oh.-aw! 1 beg- pardon. P.ul is I here  anything about me which amuses you?"  "Oh no." replied the fanner. "1 was  jes(. thinkiii' of an oh I jackass (hat I used  lo ha ve. I had as purty a piece of past ur'  as ever you see. an' my neighbor Brown  had an old Held all grown up wit li thistles.

Atkins, and an owner iu  Lhe famous Silver   King group  of mines,  six miles soul Invest of Xelson. received information yesterday of  tins final consummation of fhe deal which has been in progress forfhe past year.    The  Silver King  and associated claims ha ve been floated in,  Kngland under the title of the Hall Mines, '  Limited, with a capital of ��HQO,000. divided  into ."iO.OOO 7 per cent cumulative shares of  ��1 each, and 2.10.000 ordinary shares ol'^l  each.

Mr.   Kocpell. the mining  engineer who"  examined  tlie   property on  behalf of the  Knglish investors, in fhe last paragraph of  Ids report says:    "1 have to state  that I  consider the mines of the Kooteiniy Bonanza   Mining Company   a  most valuable  property, tlie value of which consists not  only  in What is already   known, but also  iu its remarkable prospects for the future.  ���  I feel confident   that if  properly taken in  hand and managed, it will rank among the  greatest and   most   profitable  mining  enterprises of the world. "  Little that is authentic can be learned  at Nelson regarding the iidentions of the  company that now own the Silver King  group oi" minus on Toad mountain. It i.s  reported that a concentrator and smelter  will be built at Nelson, and (hat development work will begin on the property as  soon as the manager, now on the way out  from Kngland. arrives at Nelson. Tiie re-  port on wliich the mine wassold was very  favorable, its tenor being Lhat there was  enough ore in sight to pay a MO percent  dividend on the price asked for a nericd  of seven years. The ore can he worked al;  a profit for the copper that it carries alone.  Nodding Off to Sleep.  The loss of voluntary power'in a person  sinking-quietly into sleep is very gradual.  An object is grasped by thehand while yet  awake: if is seen to be held less and less  .firmly as sleep comes on, till at last all  power is gone and it falls away. The head  ofa person in a sitting posture gradually  losos the support of the muscles which sustain it upright, it. droops by degrees and  in the end falls upon the chest. The head  falls by the withdrawal of power from  particular muscles, the.slight.shock thence  ensuing partially awakens and restores  this power, whicli again raises the head,  and this falling and raising, or in other  words, the nodding, continues as long as  the do/.ing off toslecp while in a silting  posture continues. At the precise moment  when the mind loses its consciousness I here  results a general relaxation of all (he  muscles. If the body be at re>(. in a lying  posture there is no marked result, but if  the body be in an uneasy posture, such as  sitting, then the relaxation of I he muscles  causes the fallingof the head and nodding  described.

The Spokane Review  of.Iuly 10th contains   a   four-column   article,   under   the
a hove heading, descriptive of a trip from
Bonner's    Fevvy   to    Kaslo.      That    tlie
writer, who signs  himself  Herbert Iley-
"wood, is a (endorfool ofa lender sort, is
certain.    In doscribing'Bomier's Ferry, iis
picluresipie  beauty, long rows of cabins,
iind the old ferry, he grows eloquent.  But
when   he boards   tlie  steamer   Idaho ami
starts down the river fhe Lender chord is
struck  iind   this   is   what  we get:    '* Wo
" embark upon the Koolenay river, silent,
"'misty, somber in the  early  dawn,  iind
" follow its  mysterious windings as it co-
'■ (pieties through green   lands and snow-
': crowned   mountains.    Soft   ripples and
'*' glistening spray fall   from the  paddles
" of the bark canoe ofa Kootenay Indian
" shootingacross to a teepee village, where
'•dusky children   frolic by  blazing I ires.
■"'There are glimpses of scattered ranch-
''* ors' crude log houses and dugouts hang-
" ing to lhe hillsides, with smil ing gardens
•* reaching down to the broad, deep river.
" Through green   trees rises the cross of
" the mission  church iu a level  vale with
'* log cabins and Indian teepees clustered
': amid cultivated fields." A.man that can
write all this gush about a mosquito-infested valley, such  as the  Kootenay i.s at
this time of the  year, must be at peace
with the  world.    After  reaching  Koolenay lake iind dwelling for some liltletime
on   the '-green   expanse  of  never  frozen
water" he turns his attention to Pilot Bay
by saying:   "Hero will be floated the rich
" ore  of all   this  great hike  region, iind
"never ceasing /lames and  fiery  fumes
"will brighten winter nights and darken
" .summer days as develops a hike mining
•' industry   richer than   copper and iron-
" lined'lake Superior."   A stretch of imagination of this sort, from it man of the
tempermciit of Mr. J/eywood, could only
have been produced.by .''"glistening 'spray
** from   the canoe  paddles of dusky ■xvav-
'"' riors."   After payiiigglowing tribute to
Balfour. Ainsworth, and the "bottomless
'" Alpine lake, where  ra in bows are ever
'" playing   hide   and   seek   over   restless
" waves." he winds up his fourcohmins of
j-ot with the following soul-stirring para-
graph:    "There it lies, with all   its hopes
"and   possibilities--Kaslo—hidden  away
" iu 'the   heart of   the   Selkirk's, on   the
" beautiful Kootenay lake—the most pic-
" turesque picture of a mining camp in
"the world.".

One ol* (lie iini(|iic uiilci'i'i'ist's in llieile-  volopiiioni. of Llie Northwust w.-is the siiip-  niiMit of a eavgo of'.'W New Kii,l**1jiihI girls  from Sexv Vork to tlio .Piicilic Coast in  IS05. Tin; scheme was originated iiiidsiic-  (.���lissl'iilly aeconiplislied by A. !S. 3lerc-er.  who is now an editor and proprietor of a  newspaper in Cheyenne. Wyoming. A  young mail ol' twenty-six at (he Lime of  tliat adventure, he now looks back upon  il. as the noteworthy ac-hieveineiiL ol' bis  life, tind a lew days ago he gave the following account of it to acoriespiindent of  the.San I'Yanci.sc-o Kxaminor:  '*l overloaded myself with girls, "said  Mr. Mercer, "tind broke my back financially, but from every other point of view  the expetIition was a success. The resul ts  xvevt .lotably good. Today many of those  i\ew Kngland girls-iire the leaders of society in the J.'uget Hound country. They  are wives and mothers in many of tlie  wealthiest and best families of Seattle,  Olympia. and other towns of the state.  So'far as 1 can learn all but oneof my fair  cargo got married shortly after reaching  the coast.  *-Jn Washington thirty years ago  There was lack of woman's' iim-sii'-j*,  Tliere was dearth of woman's tears.  "In fact, the women were' not there to  nurse or evy. Tliere were fexv real homos  because there were few women. The  sturdy blows of ihe axiuaii, the work of  the pioneer fanner, the labors of the lone  fishermen, wore all unrelieved by the companionship, ministrations and transforming hand of woman.-. Western Washington wasa dense forest jungle. The population was largely made up of lumbermen,  from Maine and the. provinces with an in-  Jlux of men from the southern and ������middle  states. Tlie great forests, the. mighty  rivers and lofty mountains had 3us��� begun to yield tiieir treasures. Men alone  were hewing tlie pathway of empire. Tho  dual touch of humanity, the composite  forces which make the perfect civilization  were lacking.  "1 was piesident of the Washington  Territorial University, then .just completed,-and with but fewstudents.   1 went  through the territory, visiting logging  ramps and settlements, to awaken an interest', in school matters. Seeing the need  of teachers 1 arranged I'or bringing out  thirty school-ma'ams from Massachusetts.  The ac(|ttisifioii was hailed with delight.  The only trouble was that they were too  promptly grabbed itpatid married off: but.  the experiment Was so successful that 1  began to have visions of the greater  scheme. The women were pleased with  their reception anil good fortune and enjoyed the new life wliich they had entered  upon. I brought out the schoolteachers  in May. ISiil. lu the spring of ISO.*) I determined to attempt the iniportution of  women on a large scale.  '��� Historical parallels are not wanting in  the record of similar enterprises."said Mr.  Mercer. '"The jloinaus captured the  Sabine women and made them 'wives.  The London colony sent to Virginia in  I(i:il ninety maidens to become wives of  the .Jamestown settlers, lit the early days  of the settlement of Quebec I'Vanee sent  out a shipload of young women to Canada.  All these experiences resulted' happily,  and I'ul! of enthusiasm I started for New  Vork with the great plan in my mind. I  .arrived there iu April, ISli.*"*. My plan was  to leave for Washing, on the next day and  interest president Lincoln iu the idea. 1  had conned over a nice little speech to  make fo him, referring fo the laet that  the war was over, and that he had a ltirge  number of idle transports and steamers,  and that I had use for ono of those steamers hi a. good cause. I would say: 'The  Wiir litis made thousands of widows jmd  orphans. We ha ye a world nf'young men  of good enterprising character in the  1'uyel   Sound  couiilry  and   we   want  to  bring out five hundred women from the  east, (.five ine a United States vessel anc:  men to manage it. I will furn'sh the coal  and provide for the provisions and other  expenses and guarantee the best results."  I had letters from the schoolteachers who  had already gone to the coast, and from  prominent men of Wash ing ton and Oregon.  ���"That night came the fearful news that  shocked fhewhole civilized world��� the assassination of president Lincoln. This  event changed my plan tind I went to  I>nsI'm 1 to lay the scheme before John A  Andrews, the gretit war governor. The  governor's oflicc was besieged, by men interested in various war matters, army  officers, fretsdmen's agents, contractors,  etc.. and I had great difficulty in procuring an interview. The third day I gained  access to the governor, who received ine  very cordially, and when I had explained  my enterprise to him he said nt once, very  heartily. 'It's a good thing and I will aid  you in every way possible.'  "���.He gave mo the entree to his ollice at  till hours and stated that owing to the  pressure of public, business, he could not  give the personal attention to the matter  he desired to. 'But.'said the governor, "I  will give you a letter to a friend of mine  who will help you."  'Mle then gave ine a letter of introduction to Jlev. lidxvard Kverett little, asking  him to interest himself in tlie.matter..' Mr.  Hale gave ine a pleasant reception, and we  spent the evening together, talking over  the subject in its various phases. The result was that he pledged himself to-cooperate with ine.'which'he did in a. very  peculiar way the next Sunday.       . "   . .  "*1 strolled into the church before the  'services had begun tind took a seat in the  central part of. tlie audience room. One  of tlie ushers came '..anil said, tluit .Mr. Utile  wished to speak, to. me. I walked up the  aisle, and Mr. Hale came down the steps,  grasped me by the hand-and led me up on  the .platform. The church was rapidly  filling by this time and we sat and talked  togetiier, until the opening exercises when  1 found myself corralled.  ���"The'preacher announced the text of  his sermon from Genesis 1:28, '.Replenish  the earth and subdue it." and occupied  about fifteen minutes in an 'eloquent discourse when he closed abruptly and announced to the large audience present that  a gentleman from the Pacific coa.st was  present who would address them on the  subject: whicli he had introduced.  "Jt-is used less fo say   that I was about  paralyzed.    I gathered myself together as-  well as I could, my knees shaking, and the'  audience assuming an indefinite  ha/.e before my eyes.    I was mad. too.    Probably  that fact saved   me and i .talked overall  hour, but  I   knew   from   the crowd   tluit  gathered   around  me at  the close of the  meeting that I had awakened enthusiasm  iu cultivated, classic   Mi is ton   in   favor of  my undertaking.    At this point I   considered the enterprise successfully launched.  '"Leaving Host on  I   took 11   letter  from  governor Andrews lo president  Johnson,  spending many  weeks in Washington for  tiie purpose of procuring government aid  in transportation.   President.Johnson was  involved in bitter quarrels   with congress  and his cabinet, and I had little success in  turning his attention to my matters.  "I visited find talked with till the cabinet officers and impressed the majority of  them favorably. I found, however, my  best friend in the person of gener.-il ('rant.  He had been stationed in the Puget Sound  country in early days, and was thoroughly  familiar with the conditions tliat existed  there, lie promised fo .aid me in every  way possibio. personally and ol'licittlIy. I  stopped around his headquarters a good  deal, and one day the general said fo me:  '1 have been invited to a cabinet meeting,  and I will bring up your matter for action.  Vou wait here till I come back.'  "Iii less than an hour (.'rant came back  and said in his brief way, *l have lixed if.'  Then lie ordered captain Mowers, his sec- j to leave me hjjrecan do so. buff promised  reta ry. tod raw up an order on l lie qua rfer-  iiiastei-genornl for a steamship, coaled a ml  ina iiiM.-d. Iiii ving sii I'licieiifacconi modal-ions  i'or the transport nt ion of .*.(;() women from  New Vork fo Seattle, to be in my charge.  through Massachusetts to make 111'y mission known tind recruit my shipload 01' a(J(i  girls.  "Al'ler two months I wtis assured of my  cargo, and went to Washington to get the  promised transportation. 1 took Oi ant's  order to the quai tertiuister-gener.il. i-iere  I oncountereU a setback, iweigs was very  busy settling up war business, and was involved in thojiondiiigquiirrel i.ieuweeii tlie  president and secretary of war. He seru-  tini/.ed my requisition and refu.sed to  honor it.  "J then went to secretary  Stanton, accompanied by senator \Y illuuns 01 Oregon.  The great war secretary was in 11 belligerent humor.'    His quarters   wore crowned,  and as we ontereu   he was storming at a  fearful rate about a swindling contractor  who  was   there   with a deaonorse claim.  He ordered the fellow  from his office anil  immediately  took up our matter,    iielti-  vored  the scheme,   out decided   Lhat   He  could not overrule the (piarterinasLer.   lie  proposed, however, to aid   me   by having  oneof the Wiir steamers appraiscit and condemned   for sale, that  it  nnglio be   purchased for a rea.soiia.ule sum. The steamer  Continental   was selected and a valuation  of ."jjl^OjOdO placed   upon   her.    'J'his  price-  was  considered a 'snap,'and   many  wore  eager to make the purchase, among them  Men llolliday, wheat that, time controlled  the steamship lines to the Pacilic coast.  "* 'Let me purchase tiie steamer,' said  Men to ine, 'and I will give your live hundred women free passage to tho coast..'  "This was finally agreed upon, and the  contract signed. On ihe strength of this  contract 1 issued tickets of transportation to my. pa.ssougors and arranged for  them to arrive in Aew York to take passage iu the fore part of January, 18('('.  "On the morning of January-!, hStiti. the  girls embarked, and amid tiie cheers of a  large crowd assembled on the wharf tiie  steamer started on its long journey. Tiie  voyage lasted nearly six months, and was  marked by no inislortunes or exciting incidents. i'Lxocpt the crew of thirty or  Jotity there wereouly two men passengers.  The girls took to the life agreeably a.s a  vacation time, and occupied the hours by  .sewing, writing, reading, singing, elc.  "At last the supreme  moment  arrived  wlien we were to reach Sau I'Yanciso.    On  the2ord of May, I8(i(i, we steamed through  the (.'olden (Jute.    Our  arrival   lunl  been  expected   for several   days.    Lxeiteineut  was at fever .heat.    It   was  one of  those  times when Sail Francisco gets a move on  herself. As we sal led up along the wharves  a black surging mass crowded every avenue of approach'  for three or four miles,  riven' at a   distance   we   could  hear  tlie  mighty   cheers   that   swept   across   the  waters.    We  came to anchorage, but the  anchor had not couched bottom before the  sea was alive with hundreds of boats pushing out to us.   The air was  lively with  songs, shouts, and  merry  interchange of  talk.    There   was  quite a'rivalry among  the boats to get alongside for a glimpse oi  my precious cargo.    None, however, were  allowed logotaboard. One man attempted  10 make it oy climbing up -the'ship's side  on a rope, but 1 stood   by the  railing and  knocked him off into the water.    This action,  noted   bj-; thousands  of 'spectators,  was greeted   with   cheers.    After a  brief  struggle the fellow was  rescued, but the  incident was made the subject of a sketch  by J unip. a well known artist of tluit day.  Tlie scene, as depicted   by his pencil, was  displayed at the Lick House the nextday,  attracting immense crowds.  ���'Wlien 1. went ashore that night things  were looking pretty dark for me.    llolliday had roi used to take the  women- any  further.    All my available means were exhausted and 1 had nothing left but youth  tind grit to carry 011 theexpedition.   I wandered  around  a wliile  thinking over the'  situation, and   finally went  to a hotel  on  Jackson street and said to the proprietor.  Mi-.   Wygant:    *l have  ���"!()() women   on my  hands. with   nothing for them to eat anil  no place for them to  sleep, and i  have 110 j  money to pay I'or it.    What shall I do?'     j  " "Mring  them   right   up to  my  house.' j  siiid Mr. Wygant. without,,*! moment's hesitation,'and I will take care of them." His  heart was built, on theCaliforiiia plan.and  he   supplemented   his generous   offer   liy  sending omnibuses to  convoy the girls to  fhe hoiel the nex* day.  *'Miit besides the financial difficulties  whicli now confronted me ji new trouble  arose. l-'vil-ininded gossips were.at work  spreading scandalous reports of tho character of tlie women and the object of my  mission. Some of these reports appeared  iu the morning papers, which were circulated 011 the steamer and caused much distress among the young women. On going  back tothe boat I found most of them in  tears and others wore ready to ob.-indon  thi! trip. I called iJiem together and said:  "All hough I have brought you here id, a  large pecuniary loss to myself. I claim 110  further control over your actions. Vou  are iu n free country. Vou arc intelligent  and moral young women. Vou will Iind  good I riends and honorable em ploy men I  any whereon this coast. Those who choose  qtiaiiifaucos, raised what funds xveve  needed and arranged for (he transportation i>|" my party by sailing vessels from  Stiii I'Yancisco to the Sound.  "I we.it ahead overland to Sciittle fo  make* ready for their accommodation  when tluy should arrive. ��� At Olympia I  caught tlie first boat coining up with my  ptisstjiigers. I to.'ik this boat and went on  with I hem, against the advice of some of  my old friend:', who said the people of  Seattle had been prejudii oil again .t me  and my cargo by evil reports. I'Lcy predicted not only trouble, but personal vio-  iv.c.*. As we neared Seat! le an old minis! <t advised me to hide on the boat instead of going ashore. I told him I would  lake my chances.  "As we entered the ha bor 1 went 0:1  deck and saw an immense concourse, of  people, on the wharf. A nourorviowshowed  my iirol her a nd many personal friends in  (he crowd, iind when the boat struck the  wharf ! swung my hat with something of  a friiiinp'iiinf iiir. In 1 espouse everybody  swung their lints and bioke info cheer.-.  It was i 1:1 ovation to be proud of. That  afternoon another boat arrived with forty  more of my girls. These arrivals xveve  heralded abroad and sent a thrill of joy  through the big manly hearts ol the Puget  Hi.utiders.  "In it few weeks Cupid's arrow began to  make havoc, in their-ranks. Men found  out that it was not good for them to be  alone. .Many of the girls would come tind  ask me about certain persons who had begun lo show t'lieni attentions. In six  months nearly all had got; married and  were happily settled in life. In those days  every industrious man made good wages.  Money was plentiful. The earth yielded  abundant harvests. Pores I.s. rivers, and  mountains contributed their splendid resources to the general prosperity."  HOTEL  Nelson, B.C.  Billiard and  Pool Roomi  Hot and  Cold Water.*  Electric Bells:  Baths.
