Dr.  Hall of Nelson Has Bold Out His

Dr. Hartlu leaves shortly for Nelson,
where he has formed a medical partnership with Dr. Rose, says the Kaslo
Ko.t nalan. We understand they
have bough, cut the business of Dr.
Hall, who Is giving up his medical
practice there to devote his time to
politics Tlie joint business Is a lucrative one, and while many will regret to learn or Dr. Hartln's departure
they will he pleased or his Increased
financial advantage. The doctor expects to have for his new field the
first week In January, or as soon as
he disposes of his practice here, for
which, we understand, negotiations are
pending with a Cranbrook physician.
Mrs. Hartln and Ihe boys will not
leave for a month or six weeks later.

Northern Qold  Field  Again Attracting
Interest���Dull  Week on Stock
The week lu mining has been almost
devoid of Incident, but negotiations
are uow lu progress for arfectlng many
properties, with thc alluring Lardeau
again the centre of Interest. The
cheering reiiort of N. W. Emmens on
the results obtained at thc Hroadview,
and the progressive plan of campaign
mapped out by his company, have already had a most encouraging Influence.
The stock market for the past week
has been rather dull, due to the holiday season, and stocks changed but
slightly In prices. There was a perceptible decline of a few points ln
most of the shares offered. This condition was general on almost every
market, and is only what is expected
at this time of year.
Rambler-Cariboo sold more Ihan any
other stock ln this vicinity and was
In good demand at almost an unchanged figure all week, though It sold off
slightly during the last two days.
Dominion Copper held firm at the
higher quotations of last week's close,
and also sold freely on nearly every
exchange. Nicola Coal Mines broke
from 12c to 6c In two days, with largo
buying. This was due, so It Is reported, to the shorts covering up. Diamond Vale weakened again with very
few shares changing hands and no Interest displayed. Consolidated Smelters were Inactive, with only one or
two sales recorded nl fairly good
prices. Cariboo-McKinney declined on
the bid price, with none offered.
International Coal dropped a few-
cents, with every indication of going
u little lower, though but little change
ls expected for some time.
Oranby and II. C. Copper were Inactive anil changed very slightly from
last week's prices. Sullivan declined
a rew ctntB with no interest being taken in this slock.

Greenwood's Unanimous
Choice Last Night
Delegates From All Parts oi Constituency Pledge Themselves to

(Special  to The  Dally Canadian,)
Greenwood, Dec. 29.���A convention
of the Conservatives of Greenwood
riding fur the selection of a candidate
to contest the constituency in the ensuing election was held here last eve*
Ding in the Imperial hotel. AU parts
of the district were represented in the
proportion allowed by the executive
committee of the Kootenay Concerva*
tive association, ahout :t(J delegates being present. .1. It. Jafkson of Midway,
Duncan Mcintosh, and E. f\. Warren
of Greenwood, were placed In nomina
When the vote was ballotted it was
found that E. G. Warren had practically a unanimous majority, and on motion of Messrs. Mcintosh aud Jackson
the formal motion to make the selec-
tion unanimous was enthusiastically
The meeting spent a few minutes in
open aud informal congratulations to
Mr. Warren and afterward got down
to business nnd completed the work of
thoroughly organizing the district. The
most cordial spirit prevailed and all
the delegates avowed their purpose to
work unremittingly from now till the
close of the polls on election day,
Mr. Warren, the candidate, is very
popular throughout the district. His
fitness for the position of member for
this constituency is conceded by Liberals aH well as by all Conservatives
and a large number of the former will
deposit their ballots in his favor, while
the Conservative vote will be a unit.
Mr. Warren is local manager of the
electric light company, and as such is
well  known throughout the district.
Resolutions were passed endorsing
the McUride administration and the
premier on his stand on the better
terms Issue. The prevailing confidence of the meeting and the district
Is that Warren ts a sure winner, but
no effort will be spared to insure his
election, as the Conservatives do not
propo.se to be beaten by over-confidence.

British Weather Changes.
London, Dec. 29.���A thaw has set
in here aud the weather conditions In
tho provinces are ameliorating. The
snowbound trains aro gradually being
dug out nnd thc railroad companies
hope that thc usual (raffle will be ro
sumed In the course of tho day. Several of the Scottish lines, after having

K.  O.i will  enquire  Into charges  pre
ferred against F. T. Cungdon, former
Yukon administrator, that he transferred to Mrs. Wiley certain mining
claims, the property of her deceased
husband. She claims the property
should have been transferred to her
aa guard'an of her daughter. Later
on, Congdon Icau.d the widow $2500
on the property, then the mortgage
was foreclosed, the property being sold
for  less than  $2500.

Persia's Ruler Nearlng
His World Exit
Heads of   His   Troops Submit to Sultan's Representatives.
Tangier, Dec. 29.���The members of
the diplomatic corps are very much
gratified at the improvement in the
a.{.nation here. The success of War
Minister Gabbas has been badly shaken if not completely broken. Instead
of the sultan's troops deserting to Raisull, some of the latter's chiefs have
come In and made formal submission.
It is eveu stated that Bel Mansour,
Hatsuli's representative here, who was
detained as a prisoner by the minister
of war, assures the minister's success
not only us to a victory for the sultan but as a vindication of the Franco-
Spanish policy which compelled the
Moroccan authorities to take action ln
the matter.
Accepted by United States.
London, Dec. 29.���The formal acceptance by tlie United States of James
Bryco as British ambassador* at Washington In succession t�� Sir Mortimer
Durand, was received in a cable de
spatch which reached the foreign office here during the night. Thereupon
it was determined this morning that
Mr. B;yces' appointment shall be officially gabetted. This clears up an apparent official understanding. President Roosevelt's announcement tha^
Mr. Bryce has beeu accepted was received some time ago, but Great Britain has been waiting his foriual ac-
ceptace as the successor of Sir Mortimer Durand, which had not been received.
Colonel   Holmes    Explains Terms    on
Which It May Be Secured���Formal
Transfer of Stores.
Yesterday morning Colonel Holmes
of Victoria, D. O. C, formally transferred the military stores of No. 2
Company, R. M. EL, to the charge of
Lieutenant Lome Stewart, who will
forthwith be gazetted as captain.
Seen last evening, Colonel Holmes
expressed approval of lhe efforts being
mnde by the company to sercure suitable tllle ranges.   He snid:
"A militia force without facilities
ior practice with the rifle Is deprived
of opportunity for performing Its most
Important function. The. rifle Is the
essential or modern war.
"Whatever is to be do'ie In the matter must be initiated locally. The government will purchase suitable ground
If it can be obtained on reasonable

tract available near Nelson which
would be of little value for any other
purpose. An attempt should be made
to secure it at once.
"Yes; expropriation is possible, but
It Is vexatious and costly. Surely a
suitable range can be got without recourse lo thnt. But the government
will not pay city real estate prices for
a rifle range. The local men will receive every encouragement, but they
must have a definite and reasonable
proposal to submit to the militia de*

Mazaffar-ed-dln, Shah of Persia, was
born March 25, 1853, and succeeded to
the throne on May 1, 18116, on the death
of his father , Nasr-ed-dlu, who was as-
sinated at Teheran by Malan lleza, a
Revolutionary fanatic of the Bali sect,
which had been for a long time agitating for reforms in the government. The
valiand, or heir-apparent of Mazaffar-

All Mirza, who was born in 1872,
lt waB within the power of the Persian monarchs to alter or to overrule
the existing law of succeslon, and to
leave the crown with disregard tu the
natural heir, to any member of their
family, but preference is generally
given to a son whose mother was a-
kajur princess. The mother of Mo-
bammed All Mlrpa was not a Kajar
For a Persian, the late Shar ia said
to have bad the kindliest disposition,
and lo have been extremely generous.
He was a powerfully built man, fond
of outdoor spoils. Deeply versed ln
theology, he read and spoke French
better than his father did, and was fond
of reading Persian verse in Arabic. He
was a student of European politics.
Soon after ascending the throne he
Issued an edict which perpetually abolished all taxes and dues on bread and
meat. He also decreed that honors
should be conferred for merit only, and
not for pecuniary consideration.
Put wltb all this the Shah was a man
oi _t .sat peculiarities. . His visit to the
Paris exposition In 1900 will never be
ior_utten iu the French capital. While
there ti' purchased carloads of things
to be sen. to Teheran. Among his purchases were fur coats, costing thousands of dollars, which he bought for
his favorite wives,' also automobiles,
pianoB, statuary, cameras by the score,
bicycles and everything else that
caught his fancy. It is said that some
of the Paris merchants are still awaiting payment for the Shah's purchases.
Thc whole revenue of the oountry
being at their disposal, recent sovereigns of Persia were able to amass
large private fortunes, but that of
Muzuffar-ed-Din is reported to have
amounted to only JIO.000,000, most of It
represented by diamonds und other
precious stones. These Jewels were
kept In the famous treasure room of
the royal palace. An idea of the treasures stored In this room may be gained from a brief description of one of
them���a golden globe, on which all the
countries of Ihe world are represented
by in..sales of diamonds, turquoises,
rubles nnd pearls. Around the pedeslal
are pllefl or golden coins, of which not
a single one iB worlh less than $100.
II Is snid that the Shah kept his Jewels
In glass Jars, so that he could always
tell at a glance whether auy had
been stolen.
The royal family of Persia is very
numerous. There nre some thousands
or princes and princesses, but the official year book mentions only about,:!
hnndrei. It. sides the belr-upparent the
sons of the late shah nre Mlllk Misnsur
Mlrpa, Shtia as-Salaneh, born 1880;
Abu'l Fain Mirza, Snlnr ed Dowlch,
born 1881; Abu'l Fazl Mirza, Azud es-
Sultan, born 188:1, and Huseln Hull
Mirza, born 1894. There are also
twelve daughters.
The form of government of Persia Is
ln its most Important features similar
to that of Turkey. All the laws are
based on the precepts of the Koran,
snd though the power of ihe Shah Is
absolute, It Ib only In so far as It Is
not on|iosed to the accepted doctrines
of the Mohammedan religion, as laid
down In the sacred book of tho Prophet, his oral commentaries and sayings,  and  the    Interpretation   of the
same by his successors and the high
The country contains an area of 628,-
000 square miles and Ib divided Into
thirty-three provinces, which are governed by governors-general, who are
directly responsible to the central government. The population Is estimated
at about 9.600,000, of whom fewer than
1,500 are Europeans.
Many persons in the Kast have been
looking forward to a disruption of the
Persian empire on tbe death of Mu>af-
far-ed-Dln. For many years England
and Russia have been engaged ln a
diplomatic struggle, each striving to
make Its Influence paramount at Teheran. Of late Germany also has displayed a disposition to have a finger
In the pie. In the event of a dispute
over the succession to the throne or
olher internal disorders that might offer an excuse for Intervention, it Is
probable that a dissolution of the empire would ultimately result Persia ls

Thrilling Story of Eye Witness, Who
Escaped by Hiding    Under    Sidewalk���Horrible Indian Torture.
Bisbee, Ariz., Dec. 29.���Details received yesterday say that last Sunday
evening a Yaqul Indian band attacked
and burned the new town of Lancho,
on the Cananea, Yaqul River ft Pacific
railway southeast of Ouayamas, Sonora, Mexico. They murdered ten men,
women and children, fatally shot two
others and took three women away
captives to the hills. The Indians retired after nearly two hours of plunder,
riot and arson being frightened away
by a work train from Guyamas, which
doubtless they mistook for a relief
train. Soldiers from the fort, two?
miles east, entered the town 25 minutes later.
Lancho was a railway station with
a boxcar for a depot and the telegraph
office, surrounded by tents, occupied
by 50 Mexican laborers and their families. The only Americans ln the place
were the station-master, Thompson,
and his family, and two American
With the first alarm the well drillers fled to the fort and gave an alarm.
Thompson, his wife and their 5-year-
old boy crawled under a plank walk
that lay about 15 Inches above ground,
between two tents not 15 feet away,
which were looted and burned. The
Indians first made an attack on the
store ami canteen, run by an Italian
named Plaquetia. He made a fight but
to no purpose, b. ing soon overpowered
and while the Indians drank and plundered the place, they slowly tortured
him to death. His wife, a Mexican
woman, was mutilated and also tortured with fire. The Bister of this
woman was taken captive. The house
was then burned, tbe bodies along
with them.
The station agent and his family under the plank walk listened to the
shrieks of the tortured. Those inhabitants of the town who got away escaped Inlo the cactus thickets nearby,
and the Indians did not follow them,
but contented themselves with the
murder and torture of the prisoners
captured ln the first charge.
A woman and ber children lay flat
upon a boxcar which had been sidetracked there for temporary use as a
house and escaped observation. About
8 o'clock the whistle of a worktraln
gave Ihe wnming of Its approach and
the lnd'ans hastily left. Soldiers from
the fcrt arrived about two hours after
the firing of the first shot. General
Torres arrived at the scene of the
massacre the next day from Guayamas
and took charge of the organization of
a hunting expedition.
This band of Indians have a stronghold In the mountains a few miles to
the west of the station. They havo
often been seen to come near the railway and watch the trains pass, but
never offered any violence to American  property before.
Vancouver, B. C, Dec. 29.���THat W.
W. B. Mclnnis, the newly-chosen leader of the Liberals of British Columbia,
six years ago applied for admission to
the Socialist party at Nanaimo. is tne
declaration of Vancouver Socialists.
This exceedingly interesting side light
on tbe character of Mclnnis waa
brought Into the limelight here but
night at a gathering of Socialists.
Several members of the party, who
are now resident ln Vancouver, were
living in Nanaimo at the time Mclnnis
ts said to have experienced leanings
toward Socialism, lt was they who
mentioned tbe matter, and should Mclnnis decide to contest a Vancouver
seat, they promise to recall this period
of his past forcibly to his attention.
TM Socialists declare the only reason
.Hclnnis did not become a Socialist
was that his overtures were unanimously rejected.
It is stated that arrangements are
now being made to bring to Vanoouver
the proofs of the claim that the new
Liberal leader once wished to join
the Socialists. Socialists aver tbat
the Nanaimo episode shows in a most
brilliant manner the inconsistencies of
Mclnnis character, and his tendency to
become a "flopper." Anxiety that Mclnnis should run tn Vancouver is now
d.splayed by all Socialists ln tbe city.
They desire to have the opportunity of
paying their compliments to him.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, B. C, Dec. 29.���The local
Liberal party ia split fairly in twain
as the result of what occurred at laat
evening's meeting of tbe Victoria Lib.
eral association. It appears a section
of tbe party who have been sore for
some time because they did not get In
far enough on tbe graft, resented not
being consulted as to Inviting Mclnnis
to run in Victoria. Proominent amona
the dissentients are R. T. Elliott, one
of tbe leading barristers of the city;
Chrales V. Spratt, proprietor of tbe
large shipbuilding yard, and J. Murray, a prominent real estate agent
They have a large following and
have to be considered In party calculations. One of the first acts of the
dissentients this morning was tbe
sending of an Invitation to Joe Martin
to come to this city and run as an
Independent candidate.
A startling theory is advanced as a
reason for the unexpected intrusion of
Mclnnis into the political .arena, that
the Grand Trunk Pacific ls behind
that movement and the game is to
hand over to the railway company as
a quid pro quo for a big campaign fund
large land grants in order to secure
early construction in British Columbia
of the transcontinental enterprise. It
will be remembered that the Grand
Trunk Pacific tried ineffectually to
hold up the McBride government for
the same concession.

The opening meeting of tlu- Conservatives of Xelson called for this evening iu the hoard of trade rooms to
elect delegates who shall at some early
future date nominal.- the candidate for
tin- forthcoming provincial election
will be the first real opportunity the
Conservatives of the city have hati for
the exercise of their rights in dominating the choice of a candidate. The
me. ling should, therefore, be the mosl
largely attended, enthusiastic and rep-
it ntative gathering that can be collected in the eity, and will doubtless

The division of the politic-ill forOe8
ol tlie province Into straight party
contests has necesitateii the revision
or muny or the former methods of
campaign an.l nomination. Under ths*
coalition system there was every opportunity for a candidal.- posesse.l of
llrong personality or for some other
reason for commanding a popular majority dictating tlie method of his nomination, The object of ths- meeting
tssnight Is to give to every Conservative citizen a voice aud vote in the
choice of Ihe men who shall finally
iiave the say In tho selection of the
party candidate  for this constituency.
In the adoption of the method to be
followed tonight there is no departure
from file method agreed upon by the
Kootenay Conservative executive at a
meeting held In this city early in tho
jsies-its month. At that, meeting a
le.-.oltition was adopted speoilylng the
manner of choosing candidates and fix
ing th.- representation of the electorate on tin- nominating hoard. The
resolution provided that in the holding of district conventions for the election of delegates who shall nominate
a candidate tlie representation on the
electoral board shall he as follows:
"^'hat for each polling place where
ten votes were cast at the last provincial election, one delegate may be sent
and for each titty or fraction of fifty
votes, over the first fifty pollr.il nt
such election, an additional delegate
may be sent."
lt will he seen that this quota of representation will provide the electors
of the city of Nelson approximately
twenty delegates to whom shall be
committed the important duty of selecting and nominating ihe candidate
for the approaching contest. This
number win afford the election of a
widely distributed antl thoroughly representative board of nominators and
every effort shoulil be made at the
primary convention to secure such
complete representation of all cou-
conceineil, thai when thc candidate is
finally selected there need he no one
feel that the man ol his choice has
noi hud lair presentation of his claims
in the   nominating   convention.     The
Primary Convention'* method of select.ug a candidate has its faults, but
is lias as w.-li other teatures of advantage which If faithfully accepted uud
Used, speak volumes in its favor, lis
Chiel Weakness is lu Uie In.lllterellce
ofttn mauiiested at the convention
which elects llie primaries, if such
conventions are well attended aud
truly representative of the party and
tin situation at the primary convention, there is no reason why the whole
rank and file shoulil not feel bound
to support the selection of the delegates elected by such a convention,
lhe mutter Is one which will be more
eifectivsly determined by the enthusiasm of tonight's meeting than by any
amount of criticism aad faultllnding
before or afterward. The Conservatives of Nelson who have it vital interest In the personality of the candidate
tu be Beleoted should present themselves tonight and make their plea,
[.lining forth every honest effort to
curry their point and patriotically
agreeing to abide by the decision of
tht* nominating convention when Its
work is done.
It  would be  folly lo anticipate the
work of the convention tonight. Nelson, like many other constituencies,
has a goodly number of poliiical possibilities in the way or Conservative
candidates, and no doubt each or these
has his friends, who are prepared to
urge his claims to    the    nomination.
Tlie place to urge Ihese claims is at
tilt- meeting tonight, and. following the
plea, to nominate an.l elect such members of the convention as may be
trusted to stand loyally by their friend
and yield his claims to others only
when the niaturer and deliberate wisdom oi ihe nominators shall determine
Among the possible ami prospective
candidates we know of none who will
selli.-hly insist on any claim to preference, though we could name several
capable and worthy men who would do
honor to the constituency if elect.-si.
and who are nol unwilling I.. devote
time, talent and energy to tin- representation ol' the disiriei in Ihe legislative assembly.    The unseitishness ot*
these men should he the cue for tho
entire proceedings, anil electors who
have favorites should be governed ln
their actions and speech by tha spirit
of those whose cause they espouse.
Tbat such will be the spirit of the
conv.nl ion we feel assured, und we believe that from the meeting tonight
will result the unification ol' lhe Conservative forces of Nelson, the sinking of all factional differences bred
out of the circumstances of the past
and lhe enthusiastic aud loyal alignment ol' all true adherents of the party In sympathy with the nvowed principles of the historic characters whose
foresight, energy, heroism antl self-
sacrif.ee, together with the wisdom of
their political platforms, have made
Canada what it is today.
Uf one thing ail may feel assured
this evening, that at the meeting of
the Conservatives of Nelson all will
meet upon a common level ami all will
have lair play. That all should avail
themselves of this unique privilege
needs no  urging on our part.
It is now conceded, even by Liberals
themselves, that the Intrusion of Mr.
Mclnnis into the arena of llrltlsh Columbia politics is tlie device of tho
federal politicians who seem to have
decreed that If any means are available by which the province can he
brought under the control of the federal machine the means shall be used.
It is quite natural that Coast Liberals
should have invited Mclnnis into the
field, as their confidence in Macdonald
has effervesced by reason of the tit-
capacity manifested by him and his
wholly negative policy lacking the essential element of initiation and construction as It does. Even as late as
yesterday Mr. Macdonald defines his
opposition to ttie present government
as consisting in the alleged accusation thai they have nol done this, that
ami the other. The criticism may be
dismissed without comment.
On the other hand the constructive
elements iu the platform of the leader
of the Liberals is worthy of quotation
as showing the limit of initiative of
whicli he and his quondam party aro
capable. He says: "Our policy Is
. . . . the creation of a department of labor and immigration, subjects too important to be left as at
present without shape or provincial
guidance, to guartl us against undesirable immigrants,
"Full inquiry Into water records and
Irrigation, and while protecting prior
rights, providing lor a wider distribution of water available for Irrigation.
An atlequate system of forest protection; surveys of crown lands available
for settlement, and vfhere practicable,
parcelling them into small holdings us
part of Immigration policy; repeal of
school act and return to a system of
state education; revision or tile terms
ot placer and dredging leases anil lessening the danger or Inadvertent for-
"No alliance with those revolutionists wins would destroy our system of
governmenl and haul down our Hag,
but on the contrary, co-operation with
that greal body or labor which would
reform abuses In a constitutional way."
None or these proposals possesses
the element of virility. Not a single
constituency Is making an issue or
any one or them. And even If such
were the case thoy relate only to matters already dealt with by the present
government and in such a way that
amendment to the present acts is the
simplest prs.position Imaginable. Indeed, the salient features are already
embodied In proposed legislation.
Were these proposals all that the
present campaign Involves we can seo
no need for a strenuous conflict on
either side. The house might as well
go Into a coalition nt once. Hut tho
issues are not confined to these features. The matter has been taken out
of Mr. Macdonald's hands and the federal authorities have assumed the control or provincial arralrs in sn far as
the Liberals shall have their control
under their hand.
A Liberal triumph ut the forthcom
ing fleet ions will mean domination by
the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, lt
must not be forgotten thai when Sir
Wilfrid went tss tin- country with his
Grand Trunk Pacific scheme there was
no party government in British Columbia, The terms and details ol ihs*
charter were practically settled before
the advent or ibe McBride ministry.
No one could then know what would
be the attitude of this government i"
the expropriating and marauding policy ot that  Insatiable corporation.
Since Ihen there have been disclosures, and they have heen equally unsatisfactory to lbs' Orand Trunk Pacific and tn Sir Wlirrld. Sss that we
are to face a   campaign   engineered
from Ottawa, with thai prince of political charlatans, Mclnnis, in lead the
foraging rbroes, Thai they will glean
closely In the event of their triumph
may Ih- predicated front the undesirable record of their alliance so far.
it is well, therefore, for the electors
of the province lo count the cost to
the country in case a Liberal triumph
should result rrom the onslaught ot
Hit- attacking forces. It will cost fifteen thousand nc^es of public domain
for every tulle of railway line constructed within tho province, lt will
cost free sites for station, side track
uud other facilities. It will cost us a
free gilt of all timber and other materia! necessary to tlie construction of
the line aud its accessories. It will
mean the exemption from taxation for
thirty years of all railway property,
and it may mean the granting of other
franchises and tlie saddling of the
province with an incubus from which
lhe rising generation will bo unable
to   free   itself.
We do not seek to play tlie part of
an alarmist, but would arouse the
whole country to th.- peril which
threatens llrltlsh Columbia at the present time. The contest ls no mere battle to be waged by two political parties
between whom there is little to choose
but the name. It means in this case
tbe alienation of public domains and
their reversal of the very policy which
has made the McBride administration
a nightmare lo the public robbers wbo
have fattened at tlie Dominion crib,
anil whose chagrin is indescribable in
view of tlle rejection of overtures
made lor tlie control of a large slice ot
tbe Pacific province.
The McBride administration has
been tried and tested antl Its policy ls
well known. The same may he said of
Ottawa, and the electors will have the
privilege ot making choice between
these, but it will be too late to grieve
over disastrous consequences after the
fatal  mistake has heen committed.
Tbe Nelson Conservatives intend
passing a resolution of thanks at their
meeting this evening, and after having
it beautifully illuminated and framed
will present It to the morning paper
for Its wholesouled Interest in the
cause of peace and harmony among
the 'local government supporters. Of
course, the News ravors open nomination because that was tin. method
adopted hy the Grits a couple of
months ago, with the result tbat next
Wednesday the Liberals have to do
their work all over again. Conservatives of Nelson, however, are of tbe
opinion that the News has troubles
enough of Its own.

One of thc reasons why Macdonald
has had to take a back seat for Mclnnis is in the fact that the best Liberals, the old-time warhorses, will not
rally to the opposition or the Mclsridc
government. A careful perusal of tho
Liberal press shows It to abound with
such phrases as, "Mr.  . the strong
esi possible candidate the Liberals
could nominate, and one who could
carry the constituency against anyone,
positively declines to run." There ls
u reason anil the reason is that old-
timers are salislied with the present
government and will nol lend themselves to the disturbing politicians
Who seek a change. They are wlso
Governor Mclnnis returned to Ottawa from New York today. Recently
Premier McUride was In New York
and the opposition press urged that hi.
had gone there ror campaign funds.
Coupling this Insinuation with lhe visit
of Mclnnis, it is lair to Infer thnt the
Liberals know ol a modest gold mine
somewhere in Gotham.

Gospel for   Tomorrow Is Narrative of
the    Virgin    Birth���Services    Announced in City Churches.
Tomorrow is the Sunday after Christ-
man day. Tuesday, January 1, Ib the
festival of the circumcision, the first
ln tile series of acts by which Christ
conformed with the special laws of tho
The gospel for the Sunday following
Christmas Is the simple narrative by
St. Matthew of the birth of Christ, and
the vision of Joseph, his earthly father.
St. Matthew's only comment ls the
one so frequently made by thc evangelists, that the event recorded was in
fulfillment of an early prophecy by a
ptophet of Israel.
The concept of tlie Virgin-birth upon which to some degree rests the doctrine of the incarnation, ts not peculiar
to Christianity. Not only ln ancient
religious, but even in the heroic tales
of the Greeks, In the sagas of the
Northmen, and In the British tales of
the demi-god, King Arthur, only miraculous birth could be adduced as explanation of the divine qualities. The
Creeks, indeed, were more logical than
the barbarians; the frailties of their
heroes were ascribed to tile Influence
of the mortal mother, their power and
wisdom to the divine father.
Hut it was only iu the case of the
Messiah that miraculous birth could be
believed by the Jews, and because the
wonder was wrought among lowly people, though of tiie ancient Jewish royal
line, disappointment of the hopes of
the race for restoration to material
and political power, made belief hard.

Strathcona Coming Home.
London, Dec. 29.-���Lord Strathcona,
high commissioner for Canada, left
here yesterday for Ottawa. Before
his departure he Bald he was sure all
Canadians were gratified at the satisfaction with which the appointment of
James Bryce as ambassador at Washington had been received in the United States, and that there was no disposition ln Canada to regard this appointment other than In a most favorablo
light. He thinks that some statements
In the press alleged to have emanated
from Canada should uot be taken too
seriously. He expected that although
important affairs demanded his presence in thei' Dominion, it has been
bis custom to go home every year.
This year the progress of the twelve
months In Canada was more gratifying than ever before, he said.
