Connellsville. Dec. 24.—With a
terrible crash and a grinding noise
the DuQuesne limite I, the fastest
through passenger from Pittsburg
to New York on the Baltimore &
Ohio railway, plunged into a pile
of lumber at Laurel Run, two miles
west of Dawson, at 7:45 yesterday
evening, and it it) estimated that
fully 63 lives were lost and 30
persons were injured. The train
left Pittsburg yesterday evening, running a few minutes late, in
oharge ol Engineer William Thorn-
ley, of Connellsville.
When passing Laurel Run,
which is a fine pieoe of roadway,
the train was running at a high
rate of speed. Suddenly the passengers were thrown from their
seats by the lightning like application of the air brakes, and a mo-

two baggage oars, two day coaches,
one sleeper, and one dining car,
and was carrying at the time, at
the lowest estimate, 150 passengers
The train ploughed along for a considerable distance and the oars
were torn to pieces, passengers

Many passengers were pinned
beneath the wreok, and the screams

the example of our forefathers, by
the traditions of our country, by
Holy Writ and by the concensus
of opinion ol good men and true of
all nations in all ages have now
the same claim upon us as they
have had and will have always. It
is the day of the Peacemaker, and

"Most people are much better than

CHRISTMAS.
The Would wishes Rossland a
happyj Christmas. Tomorrow we
commemorate the natal day of the
Master "Peace on earth to men of
good trill," as the Vulgate hath it.
Essentially a bome holiday, there
is none other more widely kept in
Christian communities than this.
Those who have homes may rejoice in the fact and think kindly
of those who have none. To those
without, whether the memory be
one of regret or bitterness, will depend greatly the gladneBB to be obtained from tbis season of the year.
It iB true, tbat which iB often alleged, that mixed up with the
Christian ceremonies of the day are
relics of older customs, but it it) yet
to be shown that theBe were not
worthily adopted by Christians.
Father Pat used to declare, and
today is the seventh anniversary
of bis building of the Anglican
church here, lhat the good that
waB in the world before the coming
of Christ, the good deeds, the wise
words, were the inspiration of the
Almighty. The customs of Christmas, hallowed by long usage, by
JAPAN
Japan seems to be a small country to go to war with Russia, but
it must be remembered that though
the Russians outnumber the Japs
three or four to one when it comes
population, and twenty to one
when it comes to territory, they
are situated some three or four
thousand miles, so far as centres of
population are concerned, frona the
probable theatre of war, while the
Japs aro next door. Furthermore,
that the disparity between the
navies is not so greal aa is the disparity between the coaling stations.
Russia can get coal at the Black
Sea, and if a man of war were |to
load up with coal at the Black Sea
she would have just enough to
carry her to Vladiavostock, At
VladisvoBtock and Nicolaijevsk
there are small storages of coal
which would not take long to exhaust, and as both Vladivostook
and as Nicolaijevsk are closed from
early • November till March, they
would not bo of much use to a
RuBBian fleet, should war be precipitated. Thus the odds are Dot
so great as would at ilrst appear,
for it is UBeleBS to say tbat Japan is
particularly well supplied with
coal in ioe free ports. That in
well known. Further, that Japan
operating in Korea will certainly
have the Koreans on ber side, and
operating in Manchuria would
have the Boxers, the western
name for the present misguided patriotic party. China would wait
to see tbe winners, and throw her
armies on that side. But should
China prove recalcitrant, exactly
in the opposite corner of her Empire is Yunnan with its fanatical
Moslem hordes, perennially in
revolt, and back of whicb iB that
Indian army of six hundred thousand men oapable of almost indefinite
increase and possessing a staff
corps second to none in the world.
This would be one slight advantage to Japan of her alliance with
Qreat Britain. There is very
little doubt on which side China
would lind itself, and Bhould war
breok out Russia will be as surely
driven north and west of the Gobi
desert olear of Manohuria, clear,of
the valleys of the Yellow River
and of the Yangtsze, as Bhe waB
driven out of Turkestan, west of
tbe Altais by victorious Chinese
hordes over a century ago.

SYNOPSIS
Phra, who dies and lives again in
Britain, begins to recount his early adventures—He buys a British slave girl
and sails on a trading voyage to Cornwall and marries a British princess. Is
attacked and captured by the Romans.
Escapes and is murdered by the Druids.
Is born again in later Roman Britain.
Fnds a tattooed record bv his wife on
his body. Rescues a Roman lady from
a bull and is taken into favor. Lives
and dies in her service. Wakes up in
Sax m England just before tbe Battle of
Heatings. Rescues a Baxon Maiden
from the Conqueror. Marries her. Visited at Htonehenge by his British wife.
CHAPTER VI (Continued).
'It is so in some kind. Tbe
aotions of that life of yours leave
spirit prints behind them from tbe
most infinitesimal to the largest.
Now, seel I have bat to wish, and
there again ia all the moving pan-
tomime around you of that unhappy day when you well nigh
died upon this spot,' and the oblef-
tainess leaped to her feet and
swept her arm around and looked
into tbe void and smiled and nodded as though all the wild spectacle
sbe spoke of were anaoting under
her very eyes. 'Surely, you see it!
Look at the priests and the people,
and there the running foreigners
and that tall youth at their head-
why, O trader in oils and dyes! it is
not the rememberanos of the thing,
it is, I swear it, the thing itself—'
But never a line or color oould
I peroeive, only the ourling smoke
overhead looped and hung like
tapestries upon the grey liohened
walls, and the blaok night time
through the crevioas.    And, slip
covering thie, Blodwen suddenly
stopped and looked upon me with
vexed oompaBsion. 'I am sorry, I
am no good teacher to so outrun
my pupil. Ask me henceforth
what simple questions you will,
and they shall be answered to the
best I can.'
And so presently I went on. 'if
thoBe things which have been are
thus to,you—and it does not seem
impossible—how is it with those
other things of today, or et ill unborn of the future? How far can
you more favored ones foresee or
guide those things to whicb we, unhappy, but submit?'
'The strong tide of circumstance,
Phoenician, is not to be turned by
suoh hands as these'—and she
held her pallid wrists towards the
blaze, until I saw the ruddy gleam
flash back fiom the rough gold
bosses of her anoient bracelets.
'There are laws outside your comprehension whioh are not framed for your narrow understanding. We obey these as much
as you, but we perceive with infi
nitely clear vision the inevitable
logio oi fate, the true sequence' of
event*, and thuB it is sometimes
within our power to amend and
guide tbe details of that brief episode which you call your life.'
'Do you say that priceless span,
my comrades, yonder sleeping gir),
and all the others Bet bo high a
value on is but "an episode"?'
'Yes—a halting step upon a wondrous journey, half a gradation
upon the mighty spirals of existence!'
'And time?' I aek(d, full of a
wonder that Boaroe found leisure to
comprehend one word ot hers before
it asked another question. 'Is
there time with you? Even I, re*
ilectiva now and than upon this,
long journey of mine, have thought
that time must be a myth, an impossibility to large experience.'
[To be continued.]
AMONG ROSSLAND SHOPS-
Merchants of tne Cams are Rising te
tha Occasion
The shoestores, Lalonde and Mo-
Neilljhave particularized the season
by laying in a stook snowshoes and
other winter footwear, forming
acceptable enough Christmas presents. McArthur & Harper are as
ueual up-to-date and have a fine
variety of goods from which to
select. The jewellers, shops, Ewert
Bros and Challooer have also laid
in a fine stock of holiday goods, for
which they are finding ready ►ale.
Linton Bros and M. E. Simpson,
stationers, will also be found to be
well worth visiting by those who
are of a literary or frivolous turn of
turn of mind. All sorts of Christmas presents especially in the way
of pictorial Christmas post cards,
are to be found in their places of
business.
Among the grocers Agnew and
H. It Jones have both laid in nice
stocks and are extending a hearty
welcome ta their customers.
For the convivially inolined
Levy's cigar store and the Bank,
Palace and Hoffman hotels are
offering a different order of inducements. For the oharitable Lingle
has wood on hand to supply a weloome Christmas gift. Petob and
Schwartzenhauer have made a
speciality of a Christmas cake
whioh they aver equals anything
of home manufacture or of importation.
The B. C. Market has made a
specialty this year of v^nm 11 and
to the Canadian venison iB a
more national appeal than even
the 'roast beef of Old England.'
B. Bannett is to the fore with a
number of useful articles in tbe
way of wearing apparel which
form of Christmas purchasing
should appeal to many. But for
those who intend to be stylish no
morel serviceable Christmas present
even if apparently Belfieh, can be
bad than an up to date business
suit or winter overcoat at Taylor
and McQnarrie's whioh firm has
gone to some trouble in laying in a
special line of goods which need
not necessarily hit the pocket too
hard.
Last but not least at the offices of
J. B. Johnson oan be procured
skating season tickets which is one
of the prettiest forms of a Christmas gift and, not unusually,has re-
cults.
Altogether it may be said that
the efforts of the Rossland merchants show a ready spirit to recognize the improving times.

Toronto* Coservatives Oppose Urquhart on Party Grounds
Toronto, Deo, 24.—When the
municipal nominations closed at
noon today it was found that the
Tories had succeeded after all in
finding a candidate to oppose the
re-eleotion of mayor Urquhart.
- Some days ago an understanding was arrived at that mayor Urquhart was not to be opposed solely
baoause he was a Liberal. His
administration of civic affairs during his year of offioe has been
more than satisfactory to the great
mujority of citizens, Conservatives
and Liberals alike. It was felt
that he should be given another
year, and prominent Conservatives
agreed to this.
However, the machine element
would not abide by this decision
They claimed that Toronto was
Conseivative and that the ohief
magistrate should be a Conservative. No reputable party man
would accept the nomination, and
up to last night it looked as though
Mayor Urquhart would be unopposed, because there is really nothing in the candidature of the Sooi
alist, who will not poll 500 votes.
At the last moment the ward
committees persuaded Oliver How-
land to accept nomination. He
was defeated last year by Uiqu
hart. The Socialist nominee is G.
A. Maves.
