(Capital an6 Brains  Can   Both   be   Employed   to   Advantage   in  the  Mining  Crimps of East and  West   Kootenay.  .FIRST  YE>\R.-i\T0..  NISLSOJS1",   BRITISH.   COLUMBIA,  THURSDAY, JULY   :W.   IS!):;.  PRICE  TEX  CENTS:  WE WANT TO  BE   INDEPENDENT  AND    NO,   LONGER     UNDER    THE    DOMINATION   OF MARA, BARNARD  &   CO.  The Customs. Olllcer.'i 1" Kootenay District  Should not be Compelled lo Traiiwict liiui-  Uienis Thi'uiiii'li New Westminster, but  ShuuM   _}_ul   Direct   With   Ottfiwu.  Tim customs nflicers in the Koolenay  Cake district had another shaking up this  week, and o\'i��ry(liin__. is now again iniu-li  the same as iL was last spring. Him Is can  fill) as they please, that is. (lie boats of flu.'  _Uara-Barnard lini' can run as they please;  the other boats I>rri111_,- required Id observe  the customs regulations. This slad.' ol"  things will continue just as long as the  Koolenay Lake district is iiiiilur thai, of  New Westminster. If I.lie Kootenay Cake  district is so important as to require the  services nl'a down clerks, prevenfive ofli-  cers. and oflicers of higher decree, il, certainly should not, be compelled lo play see-  ond fiddle lo so unimportant a district as  iS'ew Westminster. Tlie government  .should make the Kootenay Lake district  independent of any other district in the  province: one whose officials would tra il  ea used to be made of all Canadian cuttle  imporled. and at times their importation  'was prohibited altogether. The following  from tin; Winnipeg Krco Kress shows how  (he game is work<id : " I f sir ( Minrlcs Tapper is correctly reported: and he is of tin.'  opinion th;it a cheat has lieen put upon  Canada by substituting a diseased lung  for a healthy one: the fraud should be exposed if if look half a year's re\'eiiue. II.  would be worth a good deal lo get, a I. i.he  bottom of a piece of rascality of that  kind." Canadians, would you believe it?  Our dear kinl'olk iu ihe "old country"  even descend lo low down "Yankee"  t ricks to keep our cattle from coming in  competition with theirs. The sooner Canadians collie to the conclusion that- the  people of I he "old count ry " are devoid of  all sentiment when il comes ton question  of trade, tin' better it will  be for Camilla.  THE   NEW   NAM13S.  Southern Kooteiuiy's Vothij. Power Iuurcsiiuud  by More Than Two Hundred.  The following names are posted at the  government olliee in ' Nelson, as required  by law. and if no objection i.s raised at  the court of revision iu August they will  be placed on the voters' list for the electoral district-of West Kootenay:  saet their business direct with the department at Ottawa. If that were done little  dittle difficulty would be bad iu arranging  matters so as to allay the local jealousies  that a re continually cropping out. Nelson,  because of its central location, should be  made a port and Kaslo a sub-port. Preventive .officers, as at present, should be  stationed at the boundary line on the  routes of travel. Tlie Kootenay Lake district should embrace all t-lie territory between the eastern boundary of ihe province and the western boundary of West  Kootenay district. Itshould be in charge  of an experienced official: one who has  not only backbone, but the moral courage  to carry out the law and the rules of tlie  department wit limit fearor favor zone who  would make j\lr. iWara and Mr. Barnard  tee the scratch." just like common non-  officeholders doing businessin t hecounl i'v.  No good reason can be advanced for having one regulation for members of parliament who happen to be running steamboats and another for steamboat owners  who do not happen to be politicians. The  truth is. Messrs. Mara and Barnard have  "run" tilings in this disf riet just a trifle  too long, and the. sooner they are called  down tlie better rfewill be for the district.  Another truth is, we do not..'wanta wishy-  washy collector from an outside district'  ruling over us.    On   his visit if he ever  makes it���Mr.'Wallace, the controller of  customs, will have an opportunity~lif^iear-  ing our grievances and desires, and as^-lie  has gained high office by first.gaining high  office in a political-religious society, lie'  must bo. possessed of over average ability,  and, no doubt, will settle the customs  muddle in a way that will be to the best  interests of both the government and the  people of this'district.  At present George .Johnstone is collector  of the sub-port of Nelson: .J. M. Mcintosh  is preventive officer at Kaslo, and "J. C.  Rykert is .preventive officer at his old  stand on Kootenay river. Mr. Berry, who  was col lector at Nelson for a week, returns  to 'Victoria, where he was a. subordinate  clerk. Mr. Mcintosh, who was to'have  taken Mr. Hykert's place, came to the conclusion he did not want to remain at a  station where the cost of living-would be  equal to the.salary, aiul so refused to displace Mr. Kykorf. He was, therefore, sent  to Kaslo.  Coder this arrangement the State of  Idaho is not required to come to Nelson,  but can run direct from Bonner's Ferry to  Kaslo and return.' The Nelson will run as  before, that is, from Bonner's Kerry to  Nelson via Kaslo. returning the same way.  Tlie Spokane, although an American bottom, is allowed to do a coasting business  in Canadian waters, which i.s contrary to  law. But, then. Mr. Mara-and Mr. Barnard, owners of the Spokane, have seats in  parliament, a privilege not enjoyed'by the  owners of the Slate of Idaho.  Goat River District.  The news from Coat b'iver district is  not startling, but it is that satisfactory  progress i.s being made on development  work on the various claims. The Columbia Mining Company is working two of  its copper claims, the Cladiator and Sea  King. The sha ft on the Clad kit or i.s down  twenty-live feet and (he ground looks  promising. The shaft will be sunk to a  depth of sixty feet, \vhen a crosscut, will  be run for the hanging wall, to ascertain  the width of the ledge. On the Sea King,  a. tunnel blO feet long will tap the ledge at  a depth of 120 feet. The most noteworthy  new discovery i.s the one made by, John  'Wilson. It is situated south of the famous Alice and isan extension of that claim.  No Sentiment in Trade.  There are people in Canada who imagine  that the people of Great Britain differ  from those of other nations: they imagine  that because the people of Canada, are. in  the main, descendants of people born in  Great Britain, that the people of the latter country will allow (hen i special trade  privileges. The British farmer would  stilTer great loss if Canadian cattle \\e\'r  allowed to enter Great Britain, and in  order to pic\enl, their importation the  cry was raised that Canadian rattle, were  diseased, and that if allowed |r> enter  Great Britain the disease would spread  (o native cattle. The cry was so effective    that   a    rigid    inspection    was  K.  (iridium. William  Vllll.'llll.  Fred W.

The Bonner's Kerry Herald is seldom  fair when il prints an\'hing concerning  Nelson, and iievur loses an opportunity to  get iu a foul blow. Its latest is in regard  to making Nelson a suh-port. This action,  it. states, will cause loss ant I inconvenience  much greater (Jinn at lirst appears, as  nearly nil the merchandise going lo Kaslo,  Gardo. Duncan City. New Denver, and  I'ilot May comes via Bonner's Kerry. The  hulk of the merchandise sold at Kaslo is  purchased in eastern Canada, and i.s shipped via I lie Canadian  Pacific, a road  that  for  some   reason   does   not,   run   through  Bonner's Kerry.    What is (.rue of Kaslo i.s  true of I'ilot Bay and Bardo. Duncan City  not Being a receiver of goods as vol.   New  Denver gets !).".  per cent of its goody via  Nakusp.    The Herald also speaks glihly of j  the outlet, and says that it is closed hv ice  during the winter.     Will   the   Herald" tell  its   readers   the   condition   of   Kootenay  riser   from   Bonner's  Kerry   lo  Koolenay  lake during I he lime  the outlet   is closed  hy   ice?    The  Herald   is   well  aware that  Koolenay river is closed   by ice for fully  four months each year, while the outlet i.s  seldom closed more t han as  many weeks.  It needs not Be closed  a day if the steani-  hoa f company would expend $__()() in properly ironing a  barge with which to break  ice. the ice never forming  to it thickness  of more than seven   inches in  the outlet,  and that for a  distance of less than fourteen miles, while it forms to a fhicknessof  fourteen   inches in   Kootenay river for a  distance of eighty  miles.    Another (ptes-  tiou  might be asked  the Herald.    What  part is  the  Nelson   6c Kort Sheppard   to  cake in the transportation of merchandise  to  Kaslo and  other  towns on   Kootenay  lake?    Is that road   being  built for Win?  When built���and  it will be completed to  Nelson   by  November   1st.��� the   .Bonner's  Kerry route will  be a   thing of the past.  Another quesi ion for the  Herald  to consider is:    What proportion of the Slocan  ore will go by way of .Bonner's Kerry once  I.he Nakusp <\cSlocan railway is completed  to the head of Slocan lake? Nota pound of  it.

By'  the    first    of    the  year    New    Denver    will    be   as   favorably situated,   as  far   as  transportation  facilities go. as Kaslo, aud   its merchants  --will he given the same freight rates as a re '  j given   the  merchants of.iVclson.

To tiik KniToif of Tilt: Tmnt'NK: In  looking over your paper I lind that nearly  everything fha t comes before your optics  is in the shape of ore and that the corn-  cracker is entirely overlooked. Ore necessarily being Che mainstay of West, Kootenay, the hayseed has to take a back seat  and, therefore, ranks second in importance. We have had a number of new  settlers located in the Valley this spring  and they are well satisfied with their  property. The season so far has been  moister than usual, but the crops look  well, hay especially. We hope, in the  near future, to lie able to supply Nelson  with everything required in our line. The  newcomers are rustlers.clearingand house  building being the order of the day. Mr.  Sanderson of the steamer Marion made a  good substantial job of the wharf, but  could not complete it owing lo funds running short. The great drawback here is  the want of a store. If some of your wideawake merchants would put iii a stock of  goods to be sold on commission by oneof  the settlers he would find it, a profitable  venture, produce from settlers being taken  as part payment*. I think it. would be a  safe investment. There are<piifea number of prospectors in the Cold Range in  this vicinity. B. A. Wknon,  And Thereby Create a Demand  for the White  Metal.  To tiik Kditoh of Tiik Trihi.'N..:. I do  not wish to be guilty of pln.geri.sni, but  desire to enlarge upon tin idea which I obtained from an eastern paper some time  ago. As the epiestion of the silver market  is the uppermost one in the public mind  throughout the west and northwest, any  .scheme to make a demand for the white  metal i.s surely read with, interest.  My plan is to create a fad for the wearing of ti -silver buttons,.'every- friend of  silver, and every person "whom such friend  can induce to piirchii.se one will soon "be  wearing them and the quantity of argentine used in this manner would be enormous and soon cause a raise in the'silver  market. To illustrate: .Each button  would contain -IS grains of pure silver,  ten buttons would weigh an ounce;; say  they were sold at HO cents each, this would  leave nil enormous profit to the manufacturers so that. Iu; could well afford to advertise the fad in till the widely read  journals of the world.  Now suppose such a scheme had been  Avell advertised before the commencement  of the World's Kair. and one-half the visitors to that great exposition purchased  on the grounds a silver button: when; the  attendance averages lOO.OOO or more per  day and each ten persons who purchased  carried a way a u ounce, how many tons of  the metal would be disposed of while Unfair lasts is a .question easily calculated  when the show is over and the returns all  in, but it would be enormous. The silver  souvenir spoon fad which has had its run  never used one-hundredth part, of the silver that this oik! would. Souvenir spoons  are simply local affairs and have no universal sale. The silver button would be  worn b.v every or nearly everyone except  l!. Cleveland anil the biggest gold Bugs.  Suppose there are scveiit.v-two million  people in the I'nifed States and Canada,  over half of this number purchase a IS-  grain button each month for a year, as the  design would be changed each mouth.  Kiguring silver at only I'l cents per ounce  the grand total consumed in twelve  months would be $M1.101.000 worth.  I!. II. I_.���;...p.  Kemp   Mineral Springs. July llth. IS!).",.  Working East Kootenay  Mines,  (.'olden   Kra.   I.">fh:     "Work   has   been  steadily   going   along   on   the   Vermont  Creek claims, iu Kasl.  Koolenay. for some  time past.

Lakes pains lo p'lint out  chat, people of  really  refined   habits   will  go ,sometimes lo a bathing house in  order  .to make the   whole   body   clean, and will  lake I he trouble to   wash the hands every  day with soap, adding ihe advice to wash  the face also about as often.    It was .Marguerite of Valois. that picturesque sinner  (daughter  of  Catharine  de  Aledieis. and  wife of I lei try of Navarre), who is recorded  as once saying  to a lover, without apparently  displeasing  him:    "See  these  fair  hands: although 1 have not cleaned them  for a week. I will   wager that they are far  whiter   than   yours."'     Throughout    the  whole literature of that period it is spoken  of as ai'i exceptional eliarm ina women to  be personally neat, and attention is often-  called   lo   the   fact   that, before   a   tender  meeting between two lovers, each takes a  ! bath. The fact unquestionably is that the  j standnid of physical neatness in the most  I brilliant   period   of   Krench   history   was  I such that a re lined women of today could  i no more tolerate it than she could endure  j the habit, which then prevailed, of taking  I up meat in one's  lingers:   or the mode of  I hair-dressing, which   was  to build up tlie  ; mitural   hair with  powder and   Hour into  an edifice three feet  high, that remained  untoueJied-for mouths together.  And this absence of the common decencies, physical   or moral, extends  through  all that picturesque society of the Kreneh  court, that ancient   social   system   which  '.Paine has tried so hard to bring back into  respectability.    What   a   varnished  barbarism   was  all   that  period of Louis the  Kotirteeiiih, with its coarseness, its wrangling   royal   mistresses,   its   royal   follies!  There never was a more entertaining autobiography than   that of Mile,   de Mont-  peiisier- -called "He Oraud  -Mademoiselle"  ���the granddaughter of Henry of Navarre  aiifl the first   cousin   of  bonis  the   fourteenth.    She was the" ranking  princess in  dignity  at the court of this   king and the  richest  princess  in   burope, and   she had  ih'aiiy superb' and   heroic .'personal   qualities:   but there is .something terrible yet  ludicrous  in   the utterly  tainted   atmosphere   in   which  she  lived.    Thackeray's  "Koii'r Georges" is not a more pitiless rev-  elatioi'f'6'f a society which prided itself on  its loyalty, or its grandeur of style.    Kven  in 'the virtue supposed   to belong  to aristocracies, of ..superiority, to mere  money,  it was lower than the worst periods of pecuniary scandal in any modern republic.  Indeed, there   could   be  no  such  scandal  where everything  was for sale, from the  virtue of a women to the sword of a .man.  Always ready to make profound obeisance  before a   morally  worthless   king,   tliese  courtiers were equally ready.to steal from  him his   mistress  if.they'dared, or  to defeat his enterprises if they had opportunity.-   Cardinals sold their nieces for money  or. ' power ;   Frenchmen    fought   against  Frenchmen, under great names like Conde  or Tureiine, and always with some selfish  end in.view.     Places   at'court  were more  thoroughly a matter of'bargain   and sale  than  in   the worst  period  of  niisgovern-  ment in any American city, and with the  difference   that, this  last never really has  popular approval and is always   brought  to retribution  in the end.    Money was so  I openly used that cardinal Ma/.arin on one  occasion distributed presents to the court.  I under the name of a lottery, to the extent  | of two hundred   thousand dollars,    lligh-  i. born ladies Would   come to   mademoiselle  | and ask the privilege of being her lady of  honor,  explaining   that   they   could  sell  | such  a place for so much, such a. title for  I so much, a.nd become very rich out of the  J proceeds.    The princess   Palatine   wished  ! to marry mademoiselle toher cousin, Louis'  the   Kourteciith.   through   influence   with  cardinal   .Ma/.arin.   but  demanded    three  hundred thousand crowns for the achievement:  and   Mine,  de   Choisy. who   represented the princess, said :    ".My  husband  can be your eha ncellor. and how ha ppy we  shall be!    The princess will be your agent  with a salary of twenty thousand crowns.  She will   sell'all the places of your household.    The  king"   will   be of age  in a fortnight, and a week after you shall be married."    The   marriage   fell   through,    but.  this  was   its   proposed   basis;   nor   was it  anything unusual.

To tiik Kmitoh okTiik Thiih'ni-:: Will  yon kindly allow me a small amount of  space to suggest a I'ew ideas, which in  my mind, if carried out. would be of incalculable benefit to every portion of the  Kootenay Lake country as well as a bonanza for transportation lines and hotel  keepers. The last named, however, would  not. be the only beneliciaries, as every one  would profit thereby.  I allude to the tourist, travel which annually crosses the continent iu search of  pleasure, health, and profit. Why not  lake some sort of concerted action and  endeavor to a ftracf several thousand each  season to this healthy and invigorating  climate, where some of the grandest  scenery in the world can be viewed without, the labor of climbing high mountains  to obtain a glimpse. Where the lishing is  all the angler could wish for and the  hunting as line as the ninirod would desire.  No spot on earth of etpial area i.s better  endowed by nature for the entertainment  of tlie'wealthy pleasure-seeking or sightseeing tourist. A. week, a month, or a  whole season could be profitably occupied  by those iu search of such pleasures and  enjoyments among the grand and lovely  lakes and mountain streams swarming  with the liny tribe: majestic eternal  hills, forever capped with snow, on whose  sides and siiiiiinils the deev. cariboo, bear,  and mountain goat hold undisputed sway  unless disturbed by the invasion of the  migratory prospector. Koathercd game  also exists in abundance and i.s easily  brought to earth b.v the sportsman in the  proper season.  I assert without, fear of successful contradiction, that, notwithstanding her  many matchless mines, that the greatest,  bouan/.a Colorado ever had was (he tourist, (ravel which yearly crowds in there,  pouring its wealth into her lap to be  disseminated through the various channels of trade. Long before the. Centennial State was on the line of a transcontinental railway, by judicious advertising of her curiosities, her scenery and  other attractions.��� her cities,1 towns, and  parks wear the Mecca toward.which thousands bent their steps each year. The  tourist, in many instances, becomes an investor. The money he expends for transportation and living is not always the  amount he leaves in a country. It i.s natural for persons-of wealth to inquire into  the resources of a section which they visit,  and frequently they inakea purchase of a  mine or something else which suits their  taste.  My idea would lie to let the world know  of the attractions of the Kootenay Lake  country. Kaise a fund for advertising.  Bring the matter to the attention of the  board of trade. It will be an easy matter  to enlist the aid of railway and steamboat companies. Issue well-written pamphlets containing illustrations from nature. Scatter them broadcast- over the  land, and surely the harvest from this lavish source of I'eveuue will come.  The Creat Northern railway is completed. The Nelson cv Kort Sheppard is a  certainty. Other means of getting to and  from the country exist. There is but one  thing requisite to carry out this plan, and  that. is. to let the world know what we  have here for the sight-seer and the pleasure-seeker. Iv. II. Ki.aii'.  THE NAKUSP & SLOCAN RAILWAY.  ITS   BUILDING   INSURES   CHEAP   TRANSPORTATION    RATES    FOR    ORES.  Work Commenced at Nakusp this Week, the  Contractor Being Under Heavy Bonds to  Have it Completed to the Head of Sloean  Lake by January  1st,  1894.  The Slocan country, although   posessed  of   the   richest   silver-lead   mines  in   the  world, i.s so situated that thecost of transporting its ores to  market was excessive,  and the opinion   was generally expressed  that the district would not be rapidly developed,owing to the lack of cheap transportation.    It seems, however, that it will  have cheap   transportation much sooner  than the most sanguine expected. ��� Work  was commenced this week on the Nakusp  iSs Slocan rail "way. and   the contractor (D.  .McGillivray of Vancouver) is under heavy  bonds to have the road completed and iu  running order'to the head   of Sloean lake  by January 1st, KSi)l���less than six months.  .Mr. Oillivray  is now at  Nakusp erecting  warehouses  for supplies: and  it  is said  that  two  dozen    men   are   looking   the  ground over with the view of taking subcontracts.   The Revelstoke branch of the  Canadian   Pacific is also  being built, and  it will be completed  to the Upper Arrow-  lake before navigation closes on   the Columbia river between   Hevelstoke and the  lake.     These  two   roads completed   will  give mine owners alternative routes over  which to ship their ores; one  to   the Tacoma   and   San   Kraneisco   smelters,-the  other  to  the  eastern  .smelter, or to ling-  laud.    Heretofore,   the  Canadian   Pacific  has   been  giving a $17-a-ton rate  on  ore  from Golden to Swansea, Wales.    Jfa like  low rate is given from Jtevelstoke. the tonnage .shipped to   Wales would not be inconsiderable.  On completion of the Nakusp 6c Slocan  road to the head of Slocan lake, the mines  of Slocan district will all be within thirteen miles of the boat landingat New Denver, as against thirty ir.iles to Kaslo. The  saving on the wagon or sleigh haul Avill  alone be almost equal to the difference in  the value of ore at its present price and  the price that prevailed before the  "slump" look place. The ore of Sloean  district will average loO ounces in silver  to the ton. At the present price of silver  (7.'i cents) the loss on each ton of ore. as  against its former price (X.-. cents), is 10  ���cents-an ounce.-or. $.15 a ton. The present  ra.Ce for hauling ore to Kaslo is $10 a ton.  The rate this fall to New Denver will not  exceed $20. Jf the rate from New Denver  to the smelters is the same as that now ���  charged from Kaslo, there will be a saving  of $5 a ton in transportation charges.. An  item in itself.     < '.������������������',  A   REQUEST   THAT   IS   NOT   UNFAIR.  Seeking- a Monopoly of Money.  The New Westminster Columbian is a  goldbug, and thinks the present financial  panic the result of the forced attempt to  maintain silver at. a lictitious value a.-  curreiicy. consequent, upon over production of that metal. Will the Columbian  elucidate its opinions? What, is the value  of silver when it is not nsvd for money?  If used for money why should it. have a  lictitious value, any more than gold? Kor  cent uries gold and silver have been used  as money, the ratios of product ion of the  t wo metals rising and falling during different periods. Atone period tin; rat-ion  of production was as I to ���'._!. at another  as I to 7. The world's production of silver  in l,S!i_ was less than SI 10.000.000. and yet.  newspapers like the Columbian will talk  airily <>f over-production. Such talk is  shore nonsense. If silver is not .money,  its value is but a nominal one. If it is  money, its value is not a lictitious one.  bill a s|a ble one. Weieit not for the organized money lenders of burope. who are  seeking a monopoly of money, as much so  as is any labor organi/.at ion a monopoly  of labor, or any syndicate or trust a monopoly in a iiv line of 11inhufact ured goods,  silver would be today on a parity with  gold a- money.

Hut so long as  both gold and silver are nsrd for money  there is little danger to b<  such combinat ions.  Prospectors Should not be Required to Travel  Long Distances to Make Records.  The following letter was received by the  editor_of Tiik Thuiiwk. and it is printed  because Tiif.Thiih'xk is in sympathy with  the request therein made. .. There is no  good reason for not appointing a commission recorder atc'tlying camps' in order  to accomodate the 'men who are prospect-,  ing. Such appointments have been made  for Goat River and Trail Creek camps,  both camps being more easily accessible to  regular recording -offices than i.s the section of which the "Rig .Jim" is the center.  A com mission recorders] ion Id be appointed  at that place, and theamount collected iu  the way of provincial revenue taxes would  more than pay the cost of operating the  office. These faxes will not be paid unless  some such step is taken, for prospectors  are not in the habit of hunting up the lax  collector in order to pay their "poll" tax.  .Mr. Kit/.stubhsshould take prompt action  iu the matter, now that it is brought lo  his attention.

The facts jire: Tmo Thihpnk objected  to the government paying the expenses  incurred in building a trail from a point  on Ilouser lake to the mouth of Mealy  creek, as the work was undertaken by pri-  va le parties with the view of booming the  townsite o! Duncan (Jity. Tmo Thibi'.ni.  stilted, also, th.at if the government footed  the bill, wrong would be done other sections of the district which did not happen  to have government members interested  in them. It in noway hinted that Mr.  Ivellie was interested in the matter; for it  is well known here thai that gentleman  has no interests whatever in the Duncan  City section of the district. Whatever  Mr. Kellie's .shortcomings maybe, he certainly cannot be charged with using his  official position to advance the speculations in which he i.s personally interested.  The News-Advertiser jumped at conclusions, and in doing so jumped on the  wrong man. Mi: Ivellie is not the only  member of the government party that  hii ppens to have interests in West Koolenay district.   Pkci'LIah efforts a re made to boom town-  si tes.

Iii this country an ounce of silver will  buy its much of all commodities as ever  before, lor its gold goes up it drives down  all commodities alike, barring accidental  exceptions in an article here and there.  In India aud China silver has not depreciated in purchasing power in the slightest  degree. In China silver is tlie standard of  value, and iu that country an ounce of silver will purclm.se as much of any article  thiit is for sale, except gold, as it would  twenty years ago. As for gold, if does  not circulate as money in China. It is not  seen in circulation in that country in any  form, neither as coin nor in bars. Cold i.s  dealt iu China simply its a commodity,  but its value is affected by the exchange  markets of the world. Now. what do we  see there in regard to the stability of < he  central sun of the goldbug financial system ? It is there seen thafgold hassleadily  appreciated since IW>, until if is now  worth nearly 50 per cent more than it was  when silver was outlawed. All this time  ;tn onnccof silver has remained the same  iu purchasing power as regards all the  commodities on sale in China, except gold.  Tins very plainly shows that while gold  has appreciated ~>0 per cent through the  manipulation of the bondholdersand Shy-  locks, silver has remained stable, for bad  it really gone down the prices of till commodities would have risen. And what is  true in China is true here, for the Chinese  merchants are very quick to see all points  in any way eonneer.ed with money, and i necessary: puffin,  we niiiy be'sure that they are not paying ' soak as soon as t,lx  any too much for gold, even a.t the present  tremendously high rates���if the London  and New York conspirators succeed in  working their thieving game on the producers of the country, henceforward as in  the past.           An Eloquent Tramp.  A well-known New York judge is telling j  ii story of a tramp he met a few evenings  iigo. The tram]), who was one of the  "better days and happy home" genus,  stopped the judge and begged for some  money to buy food with in the following  terms': "'You will, sir. I hope, in your  kindness, excuse a stranger for accosting  you on a public thoroughfare, but stern  and unavoidable necessity compels even a  gentleman to forget himself. I am in  want and must make my destitution  known in order to receive help. I am no  tramp, sir, and my humiliating statement  is no sot-speech���I am hungry, sir"���Here  the tramp's voice failed him.  "Too bad, too bad,"' murmured the  judge, fingering ti. twenty-five cent piece  in his vest pocket.  "Yes. sir." continued the tramp, "I ha.vc  worked hard all winter, but have had no  work in two months."  "Ah," said the judge, still lingering the  quarter in his vest pocket, "what did you  work iit all winter?"  "Working in crystal, sir." replied the  tramp.  "A jeweler, eh?"  "No. sir, ben citttin' ice on de river,"  said the tramp, relapsing into liis ordinary  vermicular, now that Jiis well-practiced  "front" had been spoken. The judge  dropped the quarter from his fingers and  gave him half a dollar.  tJiey have become cold, and  that it is a  bad   practice  for  the  dishwasher to dry  her hands on the dish towel on removing  them   from    the   dishwater.

SIMPLE  CHEAP  Of Interest to Whisky Drinkers.  >\s great quantities ol" Scotch whisky is  used ''medicinally" in British Columbia,  the following from an Knglish paper may  be of interest to those who put faith in its  curative powers: "There would not be  half so much mischief arising from the  drinking of whisky���the chief "refresher"  in Scotland, where beer has not. as in England, became popular���if the whisky sold  were pure. This fact has been brought  before the Fifeshire county council, which  has agreed to obtain analyses of spirituous  licptoi's sold in the villages and towns  throughout the county. One reason for  this is that a man had suddenly become  unconscious after drinking a small quantity of whisky, and that a- publican had  declared "he could make the best throat-  gripping mixture that was to be got in the  county of Fife.'" Everything, of course,  in these sham days of competition is adulterated, but nothing to a more dangerous  extent than whisky. With municipal  public-houses there would be no adulteration of the liquor: but under our present  system, despite the vigilance of the authorities, the most vile stuff���really poison  - is "frequently sold for whisky, which  makes our mad drunks.

Russia's Friendship for the United SLates not  a Disinterested One.  Wonder has often been expressed why  it was that Russia was so friendly Lo the  United States during tlie civil war from  ISIil to IN..:.. The reason is now given that  tlie enemies of the countries a re the same,  that is, fireat Britain. (.Ieorge Keenan.  who has traveled much in li-ussia gives his  views of the ipiestion ina recent number  of The Century.    He says:  It was simply a movement on the groat  chess-board of diplomacy to threaten liie  adverse! (.pieon. (ireab Britain seemed  likely to acquire, by means of armed intervention, an amount of power and influence in the New World which the Russian government regarded as excessive  and dangerous. If, by sending a. fleet to  New. York, iiussia could prevent this intervention and acquisition of power on the  part of Great Britain, and, at the same  time, gain tlie friendship and gratitude of  the people of of the North. who weie likely  ' but are unable to .ttttain iv.- and who look  j lo us for sympathy wbile they wait for  , the dawn of a brighter day.- liussia, will  , not always be a despotism. Sooner or  ' litter the authority of the autocrat will  ��� give way to the'authority of Lhe people:  and when that time comes ! hope we may  be able to say (o tin.' free citizens of a free  ;  Russia that if. in  their time" of need, we  ��� did not. give our moral support to them.  i we u,t least withheld it from their opprcs-  ! sors. As for me. m.V sympathies are with  ! flu.- Russia, ol' the people, not the liussia  | of the i7.ni': with the Russia of tho  i provincial    assemblies,   not    the    liussia  of    the   secret    police:  with   the .Russia  of (be future, not  the Russia of the past.  An English Opinion of a Scotch Church,  The Presbyterian ministers of the hireling established church in Scotland., like  (heir brethren in the past,, tire masters of  the very strongest language. The plain  man of the' world would say their wild  talk is thoroughly tin-Christian. Nothing  excites these mercenary dabblers in Jewish theology so much as the proposal that  the persons who believe in them should j  support them. It betrays an entire want  of confidence in their own faith that they  should look to the state for a charity subsidy, instead of depending upon sell-  denying and entbtisiastie Christian congregations. One of these clerical commercial travelers describes the withdrawal of the sta.te subsidy to religion as  the "assassin's stealthy hand." Another  hurls about epithets of robbery and falsehood. If we venture to say that the ministers of the hireling church are receivers  of stolen goods in white chokers, they  would be very indignant: but, really,  they are nothing else. Scotland is taxed  for their support against the will of the  majority: therefore the taxation is a  species of robbery, and the proceeds of  this robbery the Scotch sin to Presbyterian  ministers bag.

We rose up  .to cheer, but never a man opened his lips.  The number of dead had doubled, and  wounded men were limping ami crawling  in every ('iroction.  "���'��� Wattgli!

That means that our  chances tire stillgood. He casts a rapid  glance Over the party, and his lace expresses anxiety. The labored breathing  of some'of the horses tells him that the  pace cannot last much longer.  Ah ! There is the spot! As we raise a  swell we see ahead of us a cone-shaped  hill, higher than anything else within a  mile of it. That's the place for a stand.  The pace is increased a Inland we thunder  down the incline, across the bit, of valley  and spur the blowing horses up the hillside. It is a last effort. Four or five of  flieiii lurch and stagger as their riders dismount, and not oneof them could go another mile. The top of the bill is a plateau  about thirty feet across. No wafer.no  grass.

They part to Ihe east of its and encircle  the bill. That is always the first move  and we bad expected it. We are no worse  oil', however. No help can be looked for  from the distant post, and it matters not  what tactics they adopt. The Indians  take a breathing spell of half an hour and  then make ready for a charge.

Horse-  helpless to resist the encroachments of  hostile powers. The political equilibrium  which she sees in the maintenance of the  Union in its original .strength would be  destroyed."  It appears from this statement that Russia's action was controlled, not primarily  by friendship for the people or the government of the United States, but rather  by considerations of enlightened self-interest. She deshecl. for reasons of her  own. to maintain the existing "political  equilibrium." and to pi event Croat Britain from acquiring such a.preponderance  of power as would render her a more dangerous "enemy- than' ever. That Urcat  Britain was tlie 'power against which this  move was made, and that the government  of the 'United States was well aware of the  fact, appears dourly from the nature of  the service that our secretary of state proposed to render Russia in return for her  ���aid and support. This service was the  sending of a-special mission to the court of  Persia- with a-view to furthering the aggressive plans of Russia in Central Asia.  "It was conceived," Bayard Taylor says,  "that this friendship between the United  States and Russia could be sealed more  completely if the United States were to  enter into (liplomatierelations with Persia:  si nee it was clear to statesmen that the  movements of Russia, in the future, would  be on that frontier: and'any moral support which the United States, as an English-speaking people, might thus grant to  Russia, would be of peculiar value."

'There seems to be quite a craw amongst  vendors of patent medicines and things of  Jill sorts for giving the names'of clergymen as references, .Most advertisements  of this character contain the names and  addresses of parsons altogether out, of proportion to tbeir number in t he community.  Either this is a lucrative occupation for  tho parsons, or the teaching of tho Gospel  is an exfi'iuely unhealthy pursuit. It is  not. a bad idea, when you think of it. for  increasing the parson's income.

I think, that the atti- i  tude taken   by Russia toward   the United j  States  iu IS(.__ ti.'! was  dictated   by self-iti- j  terest   rather   than   by   friendship.    Rut !  even if it-were not so. even if Alexander i  II. and the f.rouj) of men who constituted  the tfoveriinient  of  Kus.-ia at  that  time  were actuated by the mo-it generous  and  disinterested   motives, the  debt of p.'-ali-  Itide which we should owe to I hem would  not  lie payable lo Alexander 111, and the ;  jrroup of men who constitute the Russian  government of today.    The rulers of Russia thirty years ago were comparatively |  liberal   and   enlightened   nien.   and   I hey ;  were engaged, at thai very time, in a'work I  of regeneration   and reform which   promised to bring happiness and   prosperity to  their people.

Have Confidence in Slocan Mines.  Reports come from Spokane that.J. L.  Montgomery of New V'ork has purchased  W. 11. Taylor's interest in the Bluebird  and an undivided one-half interest in the  Washington, for a cash consideration aggregating over $l(K).(i()0. Both mines are  in Slocan district. Another reported sale  was of a mine near New Denver for $;*i(),(J()()  cash. That the two first sales have taken  place is without doubt. All this goes to  show that mining 'men who have money  have confidence in Slocaii mines.  Trail Creek District.

The   Lethbridge News, in ji.ii  article on  the Banking Act of Canada, says:    "(food  as our Banking Act now i.s, we think that  fhere is still room for improvement, and it  is to be hoped that when the present  charter of the Canadian banks expire, as  tliey will do in 1001, that some further  provisions for their security will be insisted upon by parliament. The Lethbridge paper meant by the, above that,  under the act, bill holders were am ply secured, but depositors had no security,  whatever. The act should be that a  shareholder's responsibility ended only  when every liability against hisbank'was  satisfied, such as is the law in Scotland.  No bank should be allowed to issue bills.  All bills should be issued by the Dominion,  and handed over to banks at the ratio of  dollar for dollar of the bank's paid up  ' capital, the, paid up capital to be;  gold and silver coin or bullion on a parity  ratio of !:*>_; of silver to 1 of gold. An act  framed on these lines would insure almost  absolute safety to the depositor, secure  absolute safety to the bill holder, create a  circulation always equal to the necessities  of trade, and do away with a monopoly in  the banking business.  HAVE   THE    TRUE   RING.  and shows that they have office seekers  across the line who do not allow the desire for office to become so all controlling  that they forget that they are men and  owe some slight allegiance to their fellow-  creatures. We trust Mr. Mcintosh will  receive an appointment to tt position  vastly superior to the one he refused to  accept a.C the sacrifice of another's home  accept a.C the st  and happiness.  Even if They   are   the   Utterances of  a Some-  Times Frothy American Paper.  Bonner's Kerry Herald, 1:1th: "Through  the gyrations of official life in the Dominion a Mr. Mcintosh was sent from Ottawa  to relieve .1. C. Bykert, customs preventive officer for the British government at  the boundary line, it being the intention  of the higher officials to transfer Mr. .Bykert to some other port. Mr. Bykert iias  been the faithful representative of his  government for upwards of twelve years.  He has made himself oneof the most beautiful homes tlutt can be found iu this part  of the country. He has during this time  made acquaintances and formed associations that should be as lasting as life itself.  Nor litis Mr. Rykort been alone in this,  ilis most estimable and pleasing wife has  shared in the hardships of frontier life,  and through her labor and taste largely  does their home present its attractive appearance. Mi\ iind Mrs. Jlykert have  merited vastly more than they have received at the hands of their government.  "When Mr. Mel ntosli saw the situation,  like a true-gentleman, he said that he  came from Ottawa, to force no one from  his home, and that if his government  could do nothing better for him than to  compel another to leave his home that he  might have a public ofliee, he would return  to Ottawa and content himself with serving himself and not the people.
