All reports cf discoveries of rich gold
fialds are sotj-'Ot to a heavy dieeouot,
because experienoa bas oemonetrated
tbeir general unreliability. Bad there
been 50 per cent of truth in the eggre
gate of such reports during the last fifty
years, gold would probably have ceased
to be tbe standard of valuts by reason
of the abundance and consequent
cheapness. The latest sensation in this
line has to do with newly disoovered
gold fields in British Columbia, west
and southwest of Lake Kootenai, and a
little to the northward cf tt;e boundary
line. These fields are said to be mar
valously rioh in auriferous deposits
rich beyond comparison.
Naturally enough the attention of
Barney Barcato and Cecil Rhodes has
been attracted by the reports from Lake
Kootenai, and these famous promoters
are said ta have employed expert metal
lurgists to visit and examieethe alleged
fiadtegs. Tbe experts have returned,
and Bre reported to have given out
stories of "fabalous riches." If they
are credited and we leave that entirely
to the reader these deposits Burpee s
anything that California, Australia or
South Africa ever dreamed of, opecicg
up prospects of wealth compered with
which the financial condition of Gen.
Law Wallace's oriental beioes wae pov

ly predicted for tbe Dew fields, and it
will oome on schedule time if Barney
Birntto, the Kaffir King, ;takts bold of
tbe matter. There is ncy amount of
English capital ready to follow his Ieed
One great advantage of the situation is
tbat the region in question is easily and
cheaply accessible. . It is located but a
few miles from tbe Canadian Pacific
Railroad, from which a branch to the
heart of tbe aoriferous territory could
be constructed at smnll cost. Well

Thb Herald is for McKmley and tbe
Republican principles cf protection and
reciprocity regardless of whatever other
doctrines the party may bave espoused
It does cot belong to that class of par
tisans wbo, when tbey cannot dictate
the party policy, ore willing to abandon
its great and glorious principles tbat
have lead .the nation through war and
peace and a magnificent prosperity for
nearly bait a century. What that party
has done it can do r.gain through the
same sources, a protective tariff and a
wise policy of reciprocity.and with these
cardinal principles its guide it matters
very little what subordinate ideas it
msy espouse, or whether the mass of
Repoblicscs accept or agree on those
subordinate ideas or not.

of tbe Maricopa & Pboeoix railroad, a

bas been kept quiet until this morning
for the reason tbat the resignation bad

upon bis successor.
Mr. Honsbell came to Phoenix a year

fcffubility and desire to accommodate

A Haiti Describes ili.-m Quite Vivid
ly, I gave you sometime aao an ecoount
of my visit to the Great Fulls, and con
sequent experience. 1 will cow en
deavor to tell how they look from the
deck of tbe "Maid of the Mist" and from
tbe Canada side.
To reach the landing there is an in
cline railway, running from the bank to
tbe river's edge, through a tunnel at an
angle of forty -five degrees. The charge
it, five csnt9 each w iy. There is also a
stairway onsisting cf 251 steps, which
is free. B-ing economically inclined
wp walked down the steps. The fare
on the steamer is fifty cents eRch, wbicb
ioclades a stop-over privilege on tbe
Canada side. Aa we step on board the
brat an attendant beckons-us into the
after-cabin, where he proceeds to en
velope escb of us in a large robber ooit
acd storm onp. We then go on diek,
tuba our seats and the captain seps
into the wbeel bouse, givps one long
blast of the whistle, then two short,
sharp toots, the ropes ere cast off and
we glide out into the river.
Here we are right under the great
American fall. There she is, a wall of
water one hundred and sixty seven feet
high by one thousand aod eix'y feet
broad, a m:gbty, rushing, roaring eit
red. Imagine, if you can, a gigantic
lace curtain of the dimensions above
mentioned, barging np in tbj air, of
light green at tbe top, graduilly chang
ing in'.o a pure whits at the bottom
and you have soma ida of its appear
anco to us. It i", indeed, a grand and
beautiful sight, alone well worth tbe
coat cf tbe trip.
Hera ws find ths need for our water
proof?, the spray driven by the wind
decsnds upon us in showers that would
have wet ua to tbe skin.
But we pass on and are soon steaming
right into the vortex of the graatei
Canadian fa!', or the "Horsnshoe Falls
as tbey are commonly called. The siglit
here is even more mniiatio than tbe
oriber. For the Horseshoe Falls, tbougb
nine feet less in height, are three thou
sand acd ten feet wide and carry fully
three times as much water.
O ing to the band acd tha immense
amount of spray that that is continually
1 rising, it 13 impossible to get as good a
view here fb at she American fulls. But
the way tbts water boils acd seethes as
it comes up f i-om its big dive over the
the bluff, telle of the mighty power and
force of tbe failing waters. A power as
yet practiCBlfy lost to mankind. But
wbo knows how sooa man witb bis in
venlive geuius will harness tbe mighty
Xiagarra aod force her to do bis bid-
diqg. Who knows?
After allowing u? to fully take in the
ecere the little ''Ma;d" drops back and
lands us on tee Udoadian snore, lie re
we ascend the bank by a foot path and
are on foreign soil.
The view of tha falls from the Cana'da
side is tte best of any, for tbere you can
take in tbe whole scene at a glance.
There you see the mighty JJingarra in
all her grandeur acd glory; for it is in
deed a grand acd beautiful sight. But
the American falls is by far the most
beautiful of tbe two, and I could sit a
whole day acd do nothing but watch
the pouring waters and look into tbe
gorge below, so deep that tbe "Maid of
the Mist" looks like a toy boat aa she
steams alocg on tbe surface of tbe
But our tims is sbort, it is suggested
that we bave sone ioe craam in Canada,
to which I give a willing oonsect. We
ask at a restaurant, hava you icecream?
No sir, but I think you can get it at tbe
V.ctoria hotel? At tha hojel we meet
the same reply, nothing daunted we go
to all tbe lunoh stAcd?, candy shops
acd bakeries in tbe town, but no ice
cream. O10 curio dealer told us that if
we would e'ep inside be would give us
some petrified ice cream, a suggestion
tbat we scornfully rej 'Oted. B-fiiid in
our search for ice oream, we decide to
carry awsy some memento of our visit,
and get our pictures taken, four tin
types for fitly cents, showing the falls
at our back, (.ha falls were on canvas)
Very poor piotures indeed, but very
good souvenirs of tbe place.
We return to the landirg, board the
little steamer acd are soon ferried
across the river, one hundred and eighty
feet deep, we are told, back to ' the
home of the brave end the land of the
free" where they know what ioe cream
is. Alfalfa.

Young Men's Club.
A most interesting meeting of the
Yoncg Men's Republican Club was held
Saturday night. An invitation bed
baen extended to Gen. A. J . Sampson to
deliver an address upon the tariff. On
his appearance he met with a most
hearty greeting from tbe young men,
indicaticg very clearly tbat they look
upon bim as a friend. Of course his
address was io favor- of a protective
policy. He showed clearly tbat this is
necessary for many of the industries of
the country; tbat it is of paremounfl
importance to the laboring portion of
J our nation; that it is only by such policy
the balance of trade can be kept in our
favor acd prevent tbe flow- of gold to
foreign nations. For more than en
hour be elioited the closest attention,
as ha gave a history of tbe free trade
and protective periods of oar nation,
from tbe oolonial days to the present.
The most hearty demonstration, at 'be
close of bis address: waa supplemented
by a vote of thanks aod an invitation to
deliver another addreea before tbe club
on the tariff. Tbe olub adjourned to
meet September 7tb, when tbe General
will again address them on this most
important subject, acd under bia
hacdlicg a most interesting one.
