Bryan,  in the course of his  address here  this  evening touched at length on the money  question.    He said on this subject the bi-  nietallistcan afford to look with contempt  upon   gold   bugs.     President  McKinley  sent   a   commission   to   Europe ".'asking,  help     to     get      rid.     of     the       gold  standard.       A     Republican      congress  stood       behind       him.        It       AArOuld  not vote $100,000 to get rid of the gold  standard if it A\ras good to  keep.    Why  did France  with a   gold   standard   for  tAyenty-five years Arote to help us?   England's Avorking men petitioned  the  government   for  bimetalism.    England  did  riot join AA*ith us because English bankers,  riieetiug in secret session, influenced the  government.    England controls Europe,  aiid Europe through the European party  controls the United  States.    You  heard  me called hard names in  1896, but you  haA'e not a namei hard enough to keep me  from protesting against a handfulbf English bankers controlling 70,000,000 people  iu this country.    In 1896 Ave opposed the  trusts so much that they all  opposed us.  The   Republicans,  on   the  contrary, are  trying to organize a paper money trust,  to turn OA-er the money market to  the  national banks. Unless trustsare throttled  there is no chance for the  youug of today. We ask Republicans to help us saA'e  the government.  ' A large standing army is a burden to  * the' taxpayers and a menace, to the" republic. This nation can depend upon its"  volunteers.

He commenced epiestioning  the secretary of state for India, lord Geo.  Hamilton, in an irritating manner, for  which he was frequently called to order  by the ministerialists and by the chair.  Finally turning angrily to the ministerial  benches, 31 r. 3IcLean shouted: '-if the  unionists do not want me I can join the  opposition." .. Suiting the action to the  words he crossed over to the opposition  benches, A\-here he-was-'greeted with, a-  storm of liberal applause, and ironical  ministerial laughter. The angry member  finally left the house.  A Practical Politician's Explanation.  : An old-time politician, avIio learned the  ABC of the game back in northern NeAV  BrunsAArick, speaking yesterday of the  charge made against premier Emerson of  that province, said: "Well, I guess the  charges are true, for I took a hand myself  last winter to. help Emerson retain poA\ver.  ���In the county in which I Avoi;ked one of  the candidates had "been a contractor and  had built some of the bridges Emerson is  said to haAre squandered money on. His  explanation on the stump AA'as effecthre,  however. It AA'as that the big contractors of Montreal and Toronto and Hamilton had bid Ioav oil the bridges merely to.  get the Avork so as to kill off the small  local contractors, and once they had them  out of the Avay they would sock it to. the  .'province. The explanation hit the boys  right, and they voted almost as a unit for  the Emerson candidate.

They seem to afreet tlio "continental Sunday" in parts
ofthe Isootenay, as the Nelsoii papers tell, as a inattej' of
course, of a game bf baacball played in that town, on tho
Sunday before last, between the profensibnal ball players
aiid the firemen. Both tbe game and the date sound very
much like an American importation, as Sunday baseball
and other games is distinctly not a Canadian institution',
and it is not desirable that it should become so.
The aboAre is from the Columbian of
NeAV Westminster. The people of
Kootenay are in the habit of doing as
tliey please on Sunday, just as are the
people of the toAATn in Avhieh the Columbian is printed. In NeAV Westminster
the people prefer attending church as a
recreation on Sunday; in Nelson aiid
other towns in Kootenay there are people
avIio take their recreation outdoors on
Sunday, aud some prefer baseball as an
exercise. They are neither better nor
Avorse than those Avho prefer to go to
church. All people are not of the same
way of thinking in Kootenay, and  every
person in Canada should be alkwed to
exercise personal freedom every day in
the Aveek as long as he in no Avay interferes Avith others in the exercise of the
same inalienable right.
Toavns and cities that luwe strong
labor organizations seem to be prosperous
as a rule. Butte, Montana has ahvays
been a strong labor union toAvn, and it is
ackiiOAvledged to be the most prosperous
toAvn on the Pacific coast. * Spokane is
another toAvn = in Avhieh the men Avho
Avork for Avages are AvelL organized, and
Spokane is prosperous.". Rossland claims
tb be the most prosperous toAvn in British
Coluinbia, and all trades there have, orr
ganiz'ations: . Nelson has.,ahvays been, a
fairly_ prosperous toAvn without organized
labor.-   Will it continue to beso.?

Tlie confession of James Addison (Peralta) lleavis gives to tlie public tlie details of the most gigantic fraud ever
planned against the United States gov's eminent, and makes plain the mysteries
of manufactured 'evidence which all the
detectives employed in the case were unable to solve. Had the scheme been
carried through successfully—and it was
on the verge of success Avhen the exposure came.—lleavis would have received
from the government title to twelve
million acres of land in Arizona, valued
at one hundred million dollars. His
story is here condensed from a special'
article in a recent issue of the San Francisco Call.
Reavis was a Missouri boy and enlisted
in tlie Confederate army in 1801. Afterward he was a real-estate agent in St.
Louis, and there met Dr. George M. Willing, who had in his possession the forged
Peralta grant as first crudely drawn.
Reavis' was not taken at first with-the
idea of establishing the title, and neglected the scheme for several years, during
which time lie visited California and
while doing newspaper work made some
acquaintances, who proved of great ser-
A'ice afterward. *

_ Having convinced ■_,li'i*nisei'f_that- the.
Willing paper was fraudulent, Rea*\ris
lnid a . plain duty to pei'fgrm iu making
known the fact to-thoSe "who had assisted
hini iii tlie search. But his inclination
was in anothei* direction. He "returned
to Sail Franeijseo prepared to embark on
his fraudulent scheine:
"I made a satisfactory showing of a
partial title (wllicli 1 liild forged with the
aid of the Willing title), and John W.
Maekay stood s|)ons.or for Sue to go to
Sp'iin for- the purpose of completing the
title aiid determining of what lai'rcts the
grant actually Consistdd. I had a guarantee of five hundred dollars pel' niOiitll
and earned additional money lis a correspondent for the newspapers. In Spain I
gained admittance to the iu-cMves under
the pretext that I was hunting up newspaper stories. I found that the. Peralta
fiimily was extinct and that the. Peraltfis
iu Arizona and Mexico were descendants
of the servants of the family who had
taken the name of the house. Then I
selected another defunct family named
Silva and made my hero the issue of
•fchese families and called him Silva de
Peralta."
Reavis had undoubted qualifications
for his work. His ingenuity and patience
Avere monumental:
"All my Avork was characterized by absolute simplicity. By going to different
scribes and usiug caution none of them
suspected the purpose to which I put
tlieir writings. Recurring to the work in
Spain, I recall that. I had stuffed the
archives there in two cities—Madrid and
SeArille—before I sought any copies; in
other Ayords, I ahvays did my AVork in
that line before I began an iinvestigation,
depending upon the iuA^estigation to develop the work tliat Iliad deposited in
the archives."
He uoav seemed to be on the high road
to success. The mass of documents he
drought back from Spain anil Mexico impressed all who saw them. He gained
the confidence and made use of, the
friendship of C. P. Huntington, colonel
Ingersoll, Roscoe Conkling, Charles
Crocker, and other prominent men, and
for years after his claim came before tlie
government he Avas able to command unlimited financial aid. When at last he
Avas charged Avith conspiracy to defraud
the government, his friends did not desert him, and while the government spent
forty-five thousand dollars, on the trial,
Reavis, Avithout a penny of his .own, was
ably defended. The attorney for the
goA'ernment said:
"We consider this one of the greatest
schemes to perpetrate a fraud on the
goA^ernment that Avas ever attempted in
this country, or possibly in any other.
It has been carried on successfully for
over a quarter of a century, and a large
amount of money obtained, based upon
its supposed and really prhna-fiicie genuineness. % They have presented their
claim based on properly authenticated
documents, Avhieh, as translated into
English and before being analyzed, make
as clean and complete a case of a grant
as Ave haA'e eArer had before this court."
But the great scheme fell through, and
ReaA'is, convicted, seiwed two years in
prison in NeAV Mexico. Unfortunately,
tlie punishment did not fall upou him
alone. There is a romance connected
Avith the history of the land grant Avhicli
adds sadness to its last pages:
"During my first A'isit to Mexico 1 met
a young Spanish girl. Her features
rather inclined to the JeAvish type; her

ATTEMPTING    TO    PUNISH    CANADA.
Hamilton Herald.
If the Washington correspondent   of
the Detroit Free Press is to be believed,
the United States goA'ernment has determined   to   prohibit the   importation of
Canadian lumber into  the United States.
This  extreme  measure,  it  is    xplained,
will be taken for the purpose of punishing Canada  because the Ontario government has adopted the policy of requiring
that all timber cut on crown   lands must
be manufactured into lumber in Canada.
The  Herald earnestly  hopes that this
report is true.    By the enforcement of a
prohibitory  policy  against  Canada, the
Washington goA'ernment Avould drop its
thin mask and reveal the real purpose of
its traditional  policy towards this country.    That purpose  is and  has  been to
preA'ent progress and prosperity in Canada, and to check tlie groAvth of an independent national spirit among the Canadian people, by obstructing in every AAray
possible the deA'elopnient of Canada's resources on   Canadian   lines.   The great
end of American goA'erninents has been
and still is to ex23loit Canada as ii storehouse of raAV materials for United States
industries.    All  recent American   legislation affecting this country has been in
harmony Avith  that policy, though the
object has  neA'er been  openly  avoAved.
But to prohibit the importation of Canadian  lumber avouIcI be equivalent  to an
open aA'OAval.
This unfriendly and coercive act should
be Avelcomed in this country. At least
there can be no doubt about the spirit
that animates our neighbors. We knoAV
uoav—or Avill know if the report is true—
that Canada has nothing to expect in the
Avay of justice and fair play and neigh-
borliness from its neighbor. This act
Avould mean a declaration of commercial
Avar, and Canada must either craAvl or
stand ready to defend herself. The prohibitory  order   Avill  clear  the   air and
reA'eal the situation to our people just as
it is. ■    *
Surely, if this report proA'es to be true,
the Laurier government will no longer
persist iu turning tlie other cheek to the
smiter. It can hardly refuse any longer
to put in force the power Avhieh parliament has placed in its hands to preArent
the exportation of raw ores from this
country for the benefit of Yankee smelters and refiners. If Canadian lumber is
shut out of the States, surely our goA'ernment will not permit American lumbermen to enjoy the privilege of importing
Canadian saw logs duty-free.
This country has little to fear from a
policy of strict non-intercourse with the
States. If the American people wish
such a condition of things,. let it come.
AVe are dependent upon them for nothing
that we can't get elsewhere, and they
have already taught us the wisdom of
cultivating markets abroad for our surplus products.

Considerable work is being done by
the Canadian I'acilic in the yard at Nelson. Local oilicials claim that there is
ample yard room at Nelson I'or the requirements of the company I'or the next
(ifteen years.
The lime manufactured by "Tom".1'roc-
tor's company is pronounced better than
that shipped iu from Spokane, ambitsells
for twenty cents a hundred less.
When at the job, the city had better
lay a six-foot sidewalk on Carbonate
street, between .Josephine and Hall
streets. Carbonate is a fairly well built up
street, and there should be a little uniformity in the width of sidewalks on
such streets. As it is now, there is a.
piece of three-foot walk, then a section
of six-foot, followed by alternate stretches
of three and six-foot. Make it all six-
foot, and be blessed.
"Charlie" Olson of Ainsworth was into wn today. He expressed himself forcibly on two questions, namely, tlie future

inclined to be a pessimist. .
The steainer Alberta is now making
regular trips from Nelson to Bonner's

work on the Nelson & Bedlington railway
has created considerable business for the
Bonner's Ferry run.
John Ayton Gibson has forwarded to
the Liberal delegate at Ottawa another

As nearly as can be learned, the postmaster-general continues to look with'
