London, April 25. A dispatch
has been received hero from the
United States, stating that England
had intimated her readiness to join a
conference to bring about an en
larged use of silver, has caused much
surprise in city circles. No belief is
put in that part of the report which
states that the basis of a conference
was formulated by the London Times,
which today says it is not easy to see
what "enlarged use" can mean. The
Times adds: "A decided majority of
those competent to judge regard the
issue as not based on silver with
great disfavor. A certain amount of
silver could be employed to increase
the intrinsic value of our token cur
rency, which at tho present prico of
the metal is overvalued to an extent
considerably greater than necessary
or desirable, but the general sense of
the community is steadfastly opposed
to anything like an attempt to reha
bilitate silver. The result of the
employment of the American treasury

has not been so satisfactory as to en
A surprising feature of mountain

As one mounts higher and higher he
is astonished to discover that the
toiling upwards does not exhaust,
but refreshes, until, presently, he is
in the condition of the man who
thanks God for the mere fact of phys

the unususl filling of the lungs with
tho purest of air, the forcing of the
blood through all the extremities by
the exertion, and the continual pleas
ure derived by the succession of
splendid views unfolded to tho sight.
It is a popular and healthful exercise.
The effort lo organize and estab
lish a Y. M. C. A., in our city, is one
worthy of commendation and encour
agement. A Y. M. C. A. in its true
sense meaus much, and the establish
ment of such an organization in our
midst, will be a credit and an ad
vantage beyond a doubt. There is no J
reason why we should not have such
an association here and it only needs
a firm stand taken by those interested
to secure a permanent and working
organization., . Tim ad vantages &
cured and' inducements offered by
the Y. M. C. A., are many and ben
eficial and it bespeaks for its mem
bers all that is elevating and en
nobling. With true Christians at the
head of tho Association tho under
taking will not be a failure, but, on
the other hand, its influence will be
felt and much good will result.
