The first praotice of the Rossland
Hockey club took place last night,
and the members shaped well for
the coming season. It will take
another practice or so to see where
the club is at, and consequently
the make up is notae yet definitely
settled. Praotioe will show the
weak points,and as there isplenty of
material available, those weak
points will be filled in due course.
There is quite a feeling in tbe
oity that Rossland should make a
better showing than has been the
oase for the past two seasons, and
a Btrong club for the season of
1903 4 will be welcomed by the
camp. The ever optimistic Al
Davis declares that by spring Rossland will be well satisfied.

the question of foreign polioy,

lation, the serfdom of the laboring
classes and the socialized itut« of
the future.
/ Herr  Bebel   attacked    Rob.u,
speaking of alleged atrocities there.
The speaker then said that tbe
ohanoellor went too far last week
when he referred in terms of sharp
criticism to the United States re-
garding the Amerioan polioy in the
Philippines.
Speaking of Sooialiam in Germany ai compared with Vnxt in
republics he added: '•'.'. difference is that in republics may civil
righte exist whioh we in Germany must long for. Oar lawe
of association and assemblage and our freedom nf the
press oannot be compared with republican liberties."
Herr Bebel expressed his astonishment that oount von Buelow
had oalled him "angel,' and turning to the ohanoellor, Ba id: "If

RUSSIA.
GREETING.
At the request of numerous
friends and supporters, the Evening
World, after a period of quiescence
dating back to the first days of
September last, resumes publication as a daily newspaper. Our
views and our position are well
known to most in the oamp, but
we will take this opportunity of
reiterating them. The Evening
World proposes to stand for Rossland and its mining interests in
the future as it has done in tbe
past. The oamp is its first consideration. The camp is its politics. If the oamp prospers the
World prospers with it. The
World endeavors to represent the
interest of no one particular class,
but the community'as a whole. It
ie ready to favor or disapprove ol
any measure on its merits, without
considering its source, asking
merely the question—is the proposal
in the best interests of Rossland?
We are honored in having the
support of the great majority of
the miners, the business men and
the mineowners of this oamp, and
we will endeavor to prove ourselves
worthy of that support and sympathy.
We are starting out modestly
but will give tbe publio ample re
turn for the support it affords,
running the paper on a business
basis, and asking for no speoial
concessions or subsidies which
might enable us to make a better
showing at the expense of the well
being of the oamp.
John Brisbane Walker oi the
Cosmopolitan has been taking a
summer run aoross to the Far East
and has come back less rabidly
anti-British than was his won'.
He saw some things tbat opened
his eyes. But he also saw things
in his dreams whioh he mixed up
with ocular demonstration in his
waking moments. And his dream
ie that Russia is bound to conquer
China and then with the aid of
Chinese hordes overrun India and
then take the whole of Asia, Europe and the rest of the world, including the United States. Walker
ought to have stayed a little longer
in the Far East and then taken a
pasear across India and he would
probably have held hiB tongue
Russia will have to reckon with
Japan before it can take even
North China. South China ie
within striking distance of India
The Indian system railways, some
30,000 miles in extent, touch its
very borders. Von Moltke, whose
opinion is surely as good as that of
J. B. Walker, said that the Indian
army of 600,000 men, not counting
90,000 white troops, an army which
was not drawn upon during the
South Afrioan struggle, a struggle
popularly supposed in J. B
Walker's oountry to have strained
the Empire's power to the breaking
limit, was the finest army in the
world, bar none. In moving such
an army on China the base of sup
plies is at hand, not 3000 miles
aoross a frozen waste as in the
oase of Russia. Mr. Walker had
better dream again.
THE SCHUBERT CONCERT.
Had a Qood Programme   Laat Evan
Ing
MANCHURIA.
The statesmen of the United
States are beginning to discover
that the presence of Russia in
Manohuria means the repression of
Amerioan oommeroe. For years
past Hongkong and Singapore in
he Eastern seas have been free
ports, and no foreigner has labored
under any disadvantage nor has
the Briton reoeived any special advantages to whioh other nationalities have not been equally entitled.
For all this the administration of
these ports, with tbeir vast trade,
has reoeived no general recognition
at the hands of the Amerioan pressman or politician. Too often the
reveres bas been the case. Senator
Beveridge in particular has used the
Satarday Evening Post to make
utterly , untruthful statements
about the British in the Far East,
and the paper in question has
even denied the privilege of reply
and refutation. Nor has thie been
an isolated instance. Beveridge,
with far seeing statesmanship
whioh might be looked for from an
ignorant demagogue, has apparently welcomed Russian aggression,
inasmuch as he thought it might
injure his English "cousins." But
the oountry is now waking up to
the fact that lhe Empire in maintaining its stand is maintaining
the cause of the United States as
well. This ie the reason of thel
change of tune—possibly -change I
The Schubert ooncert at the
Methodist ohuroh last night attracted a fair audience, and that
audienoe was enthusiastically
kindly with ita encores, asking for
a repetition of every number on the
programme. The quartette was
good, and in faot there was not a
poor number rendered, thus giving
ample justification for the encores.
The best musioal numbers were
oertainly those by tbe quartette,
the harmonies being excellent, the
rendering of a harmonical discord
in the Coming Through the Rye
waa superb. An equally good number was a I Cakewalk, rendered by
mandolin and guitar, whioh fairly
made the feet of the audienoe patter against the flooring of tbe build,
ing. The solo work was none of it
as good sb the concerted pieces.
Sadie Spaulding has a splendid
alto voice of extraordinary timbre,
but it is heard to better advantage
in harmony.
The recitations of Evangeline
Parker were clever and original,
and this young lady ought to prove
a success in this line anywhere.
Altogether the Rev. Mr. Stillman
is to be congratulated on the talented entertainment he has provided for his congregation and
their friends.

CHAPTER V (Continued).
(All the next day we rode on
through endless glades and briery
paths towards Editha's home, and
as we went, I afoot and she meekly
perohed upon our mighty Norman
oharger, I wooed her with a brevity
which the times excused, and
poured my nimble lover wit into
ears accustomed only to the sluggish flattery of woodland thanes
aud princely swineherds. And
first she blushed and would not
listen, and then she sighed and
switched the low wet boughs of oak
and hazel as we passed along, and
then she let me Bay my say with
dowuoast, averted eyes, and a
sweet reluotanoe whioh told me I
might stoutly push the siege.
As we went we picked up now
and then a straggling Boldier or
two from the fight behind us, and
then a petty ohieftain joined us,
until presently we wound through
the bracken towards Voewood, a
very goodly train.
Editha had got a palfrey and I
my horse again; but as she neared
her home the thought of its desolation weighed heavier and heavier
upon her tender nature. She
would not eat and would not speak,
and at last look her to crying, and
so cried until we saw, aglint
through the oak sterna, a very fair
homestead and ample, with broad
lands around, and, kine and
deer about it, aid all that could
make it fair and pleasant. This
was her Voewood; and when the
set vants came running to meet us
(knowing nothing of the fight or
its results, and thinking we were
their master and his sons come
again) with waving caps and
shouts of pleasure, it was too much
for the overwrought girl. She
tbrew up her white hands, and,
with a cry of pain and grief, slipped fainting from her palfrey before us all.
Then might you have seen a
soore of saddles featlv emptied to
the service of the heiress! Down
jumped Off a the Dane, whose unchanged doublet was still red to
his ohin with mud and Norman
gore. Down jumped Edred and
Egbert, those blue eyed brothers
who had left their lands by the
northern sea a month ago to follow Harold's luokleas banner;
Torquil the grim, and Wulfhere of
the white beard, sprang to the
ground: and Clywin the fair Welsh
princelings, and his shadow, Idwal
ap Cynan, the harper warrier,
vaulted to their feet—apent and
battle weary aB they were, with
many another. But, lighter and
quicker than any of them, Phra
the Phoenician had leapt to earth,
and Btood there aetrido ot the
senseless girl, his hand upon his
dagger hilt, and scowling round
that soldier circle wrathful to think
^m*
that any other but he should touoh
herl
Then he took her up, as if it
were a mother with a sleeping
babe, and the serfs uncapped and
stood baok on either hand, and tbe
grim warrierB fell in behind, and
so Editha came home, her loose
arms hanging down and her long
bright hair all adrift over the
broad shoulders of the strangest,
most many-ad ventured soldier in
that motley band.
CHAPTER VI
When I came to look back upon
that Saxon period, spent in the
green shades of my sweet franklin's homestead, it seems, perhaps,
that never was there a time so
peaceful before in the experience
of this passion tossed existence!
We hunted and we hawked, we
feasted and we lay abask in the
sunshine of a jolly, idle life all
these luxurious months, drinking
soom and oonfusion amid our
nightly flagons to remove oaro and
(as it seemed) remoter Normans.
But first to tell you how I won
the right to lord it over these
merry Saxon churls and dissolute
thanes. Editha had hardly come
to her home and dried, in a day or
two, her weeping eyes, when all
the noble vagrants from yonder
battle were up in armB to woo her
her. Never was woman bo sued!
Prom morning till night there was
no rest or peace. From the uppermost bower looking over the fair
English gladea, down into the
thickets of nut and hazel, the air
reoked of love and petitions. The
mighty Dane, like a sick bear,
slept upon her curtained threshold
and growled amorous into her timid
ear before the sun was up. The
Welflh Ptinoe wooed her all her
[breakfast time, and hie tawny
1 harper spent many a golden morning in outlining hiB noble patron's
genealogy. In faith—ap Tudor
ap Griffith, ap Morgen, ap Huge,
and I know not how many others,
it seemed all had a hand in
the making of that paragon—but
Editha blushed and said she
feared one Saxon girl wae all too
few for bo many. They besought
her up and down, night and morning, full and empty, to wed them
The English Princelings dogged
her footsteps when she went afield,
and Torquil and Wulfhere, those
bandaged lovers, were ready for
her with sighs and plaintive pro
poBals when she oame flitting,
frightened, and fearful home
through the braoken.
How could thiB end but in one
way for the defenceless girl? She
was sued bo muoh and sued so hot
that one day she came creeping
like a hunted animal to the turret
nook where I eat brooding my fortunes, and, timorous and shy,
begged me to help her. I stood up
and touched her yellow dishevelled
hair, and told her there was but
one way—and Editha knew it as
well aB anyone— and had made her
choioe and slipped into my arms
and was happy.
That was as noisy a wedding as
ever had been in Voewood. Editha
treed a hundred serfs, and all day
long the noise ol files on their iron
collars echoed through her halls.
She fed at the door every miscreant
or beggar who could orawl or hobble there, and remitted her taxes
to a soore of poorer villains.
In the hall suoh noisy revellers
as the rejected suitors surely never
were seen. Tbey began that wedding feast in the morning.
Christmas!    Christmas!
Christmas will soon be here. What is
more suitable for your wife or daughter
than one of

The week haB begun quietly in
BtookB and there is little alterations
from ihe olose of last. Despite the
favorable report on the Centre Star
minei stock is still depressed in an
unwarrantable manner, and shows
no present inclination for a rise
which would be considered quite
justifiable a few years since1 under
similar circumstances. For a conservative buyer the market at
present in Rossland stocks gives
unprecedented ohances.
