Night at Mlnara Union Hall
Toronto, Deo. 17. — William
Mackenzie, president of the Canadian Northern railway company,
is here on the way to England.
This morning he was closeted with
solicitors and offioers of the Canadian Northern, endeavoring to get
through as muoh business as possible before leaving.
He reported that the Canadian
Northern is in fine shape, doing a
big share of the season's grain business, and handling it expeditiously.
He was not to be drawn as to the
object of his approaohing visit to
the old land, whioh ia reported to
have to do with financing the Canadian Northern next year. There is
a great deal of construction work
outlined.
A Montreal special says: D. D.
Mann today stated that all of the
Maokenzie & Mann railways in
Canada were to be consolidated in
the new oompany oalled the Canadian Northern. He also Btated
that the Ontario and maritime connecting links would be built as
trade required until the Canadian
Northern was a transcontinental
route.
"You oan state definitely," he
said, "that we will build the third
transcontinental route."

the Swede group, across the oreek
from the Gold Park group. The
find was made at a point where a
rioh stringer joins the main lead
and is easily four feet wide. The
quartz, of whioh immense ohunks
are on exhibition, is almost one
half gold, the yellow metal being
netted and strung all through the
pieoes of ore. An ordinary sized
piece that a man would think oould
be easily thrown some distance
by an average man, oan hardly be
lifted.
Mr. Marquis states that such on
as this has never been before dis*
oovered in the world's history.

UNDERBIDDING.
It is asserted that were the city
to resume its franchise on the
lighting of the city, it would be
underbid by the Lighting oompany
That the Lighting oompany could
prooure power cheaper from Bonnington Falls than the city oould
generally. In the first place no
private oompany would be in a position to underbid, inasmuch as it
would not have the right to ereot
poles and string wires, whioh is
practically the franchise. In the
second plaoe Rossland could bring
in power from the Nelson munici
pal power plant, which is to be
ereoted this summer, just above
Bonnington Falls, at a cost not ex
ceeding that made by the present
Power oompany. Then if the
Lighting company felt inclined to
underbid, supposing it to have the
power to do so, they would be re
strained by the possibility of the
city entering the field against them
and supplying power to the mines
and to tbe city for industrial pur
poses. Or, if the city did not see
its way to the necessary expendl
ture, it could have power brought
it from Cascade, by giving that
company a contraot over a short
term of years. Either way the
present oompany would not be in
olined to make a fight lest it hurt
its contracts with the mines of
this oamp.
TWO PER  CENT TAX.
Now that Rossland has oome
down to the treatment of itB low
grade ores the question of the two
per cent tax comes to be more
serious one. As the World has
before explained, the tax when
levied on high grade properties
often does not exoeed two per oent.
Now take a low grade property of
$5 ore, to mine whioh costs $3 per
ton, to treat whioh, including cost
of freight, of reduction, of marketing the concentrates and the freight
on the same, oomes to another
11.50. There is apparently a
profit of 50 cents per ton, a small
enough margin when the cost of
concentrating machinery, and the
fluctuations in the prioe of oopper
is taken into consideration. The
government will only allow tbe
oost of freight and treatment and it
is yet to be seen whether they will
consider that this includes freight
on concentrates and the treatment
of the same. That is to say that
the tax is to be paid on 13.60,
amounting to seven cents. This is
to come out of the profit of 50 cents,
and is a tax upon it of fourteen per
cent, not two.
Now, to reduce a ton of ore, a
gallon and a half of oil is used, the
duly on whioh is seven and a half
cents. If the tax were remitted the
mine would make a profit of 57 J
cents per ton under the figures here
taken and tbe tax would amount to
7.15 cent or 14.3 per oent. on profit.
Under present circumstances the
mine is paying, reckoning in both
levies oa its enterprise, upwards of
24.86 per oent. on its profit, tbat
same profit being a fluctuating one
and one that oan only be gained by
the expenditure of vast sums of
money in the way purchasing machinery on which again another
heavy duty is levied. This is the
reason why the province iB getting
a bad name among investors.

THE SOCIALISTS.
There is a good deal of nonsense
talked about the position of the
Socialists and the Labor member
voting with the McBride government. It is deolared that they
will utterly lose their standing
with their constituencies. This is
mere theorizing, whioh on looking
at similar oases elsewhere, is unjustified by the taots that are at hand.
For instanoe the Home Rulers in
the later Disraeli and Gladstone
administrations. Under the strong
hand of Parnell they presented an
unbroken front, and voted with the
government under the understood
conditions that that government
should father measures helping
out the Home Rule platform. Had
they gone into opposition they
would have gained nothing. By
holding the balance of power they
could do much. Similarly in New
South Wales for the past decade,
the Labor party has held the balance of power, voting with the government, whether free trad? or
protectionist. The government
has only held power on the sufferance of the organized labor minority, and in consequence, whether
free trade or protectionist, has
been forced to pass many a measure wholly in labor interests as the
price of support. Now MoBride is in
juBt such a position. The Liberals
are angry with him for holding
office by favor of the Independents.
At the Bame time they declare that
the Independents will lose favor by
supporting MoBride. Now, as
Vancouver showed, the Liberals
had no oinoh on the Independent
vote. If they want that vote they
will have to show that they are
willing to take up some at least of
the Independent programmes. Are
they willing to do so? Will they
outbid MoBride? That is the affair
in a nutshell. Regarded from a
political standpoint the -Independent position is a good one.
THE SCHOOL TEACHERS.
Mayor Dsan ragistara yat another
kick, and calla Daniol to ordar.
A proposal was brought up in Finance Committee Tuesday evening
that the school teachers be paid
their salaries before Christmas, instead oi at the regular time next
month, in order to help them to
spending a short vaoation. This
was fathered by Chairman Daniel
and Alderman Talbot. Mayor
Dean objected on the ground that
the teachers would spend the money
out of the oity. The vote was put
and the mayor was the only dissentient. Aldermen Embleton and
Dunlop would not express an opinion. It was carried by a majority
of two to one.
This did not please the mayor,
and as he was overruled in commit
tee, ventilated his grievances in
Cou noil meeting, calling down Al
derman Daniel. That alderman
moved an adjournment. The mayor
deolared it out of order, despite all
parliamentary procedure, and went
on lecturing the Finance chairman,
who grew tired and expressed himself, and together with Alderman
Talbot left the room, declaring the
meeting adjourned. It was a live
Council meeting.

CHAPTER VI (Continuedj.
The Normana for long had leli
us wholly alone, partly through
the usurper ounning whioh prompted oar new tyrant to deal gently
with those who had stood in arms
against him, but principally in
our oase since the strong tide ol
invasion had swept northward be
yond ue, and Voewood slept unharmed, unnoticed among its green
solitudes—a Saxon homestead as it
had been sinoe Hengist's white
horse first flaunted upon an English
breeze and the aeven kingdoms
sprang from the ashes of old Bo-
man Britain.
So we lived light [hearted from
day to day, forgetting all about the
battle by Ssnlao, and drinking, as
I have said, in our evening wassails
oonfuaion andj scorn of the invaders who seemed ao distant. It
was a good time, and I have little
to note of it. Many were the big
boars whioh died upon my eager
spear down in the morasses to the
southward, and I oame to love my
casts of tierceleto and my hounds
as though I had been born to a
woodman's cape and had watched
the fens for hernshaws and followed the slot of wounded deers from
my youth upwards.
All these things led me into
many a wild adventure and many
a desperate strait: but one of them
stands out from the rest upon the
crowded pages of my memory. I
had, one day when Editha was
with me, mounted aB she would be
upon her palfrey, slipped the dogs
upon a stag an arrow of mine had
wounded it ln the foreleg, and exoited by the chase and reluotant
as ever to turn back from an unaccomplished purpose, we followed
far into the unknown distances,
and all beyond our reckonings. I
had let fly that shaft at midday,
and at sundown the stag was still
afoot, the dogs olose behind him,
and I, indomitable, muddy, and
torn from head to loot, bat with all
the hunter instinct hot within me,
was pressing on by my Saxon's
bridle rein. Endless, rough, and
tangled miles had we run and
scrambled in that lengthy chase,
•nd neither of us had noticed the
way, or how angry the sun was
setting in the west.
ThuB it came about that when the
noble hart at length stood at bay
in the lichened coverts under a
bushy orag, there was hardly
breath in me to oheer the weary
dogs upon him, and hardly light
enough to aim the swift thrust of
my subduing javelin whioh laid
him dead and bleeding at our feet.
Yes, and belore I could cut a
hunter's supper from that glossy
haunch the dome of the sky dosed
whistle through the branohes and
the murky clouds to fly across the
face ol the sombre heaven, while
neither east nor west oould any
limit be seen to the interminable
vastneeses of the endless woodlands I In vain was it we struggled for a time back upon our footsteps, and then even those were
lost; and, as the sky in the east
burnt an angry yellow for a moment before the remorseless night
set in, it gave ub just light to see
we were hopelessly mazed in the
labyrinths ot the huge and lonely
forest.
It was thus we turned to take
such shelter aB might offer, and
that gleam shone for a moment
pallid, yellow, and ghastly upon a
duster of grey stones standing on
a grassy mound a quarter of a
mile away. Thither we struggled
through the blaok mazes of tbe
storm, the headlong rain whistling
through the misty thickets like
flights of innumerable arrows, the
angry wind lashing the treetops
into bitter complaining, and waving abroad (in the sodden dismal
twilight) all the long beards oi
goblin lichens hanging in ghostly
tapestry across our path that
dreary October evening.
Reeling and plunging to the
shelter through a blaok world ol
tangled witnesses, with that mocking gleam behind shining like a
window of the nether world, and
overhead a gaunt, hurrying array
of cloudy forms, we were presently
upon the oopploe outekirt, and
there I stopped as though I had
grown to the ground,
I stopped belore that great gaunt
ed again and again, while the Saxon girl crouohed to my side, and
my hounds whined and shivered at
my feet, lor there, incredible I
monstrous! — yellow and shining
in the pallid derision of the twilight, stern, hoary, ruinouB, mocking—overthrown and piled one
upon the other, clasped about their
(eet by the knotted fingers of the
woodland growth, swathed in the
rooking miBts which gave a horrid
liie to their cruel, inlernal dead-
nesB, were the stones, the very
stones of that Druid altar plaoe

Ymir, Deo. 17.—The recently reported strike on the Gold Cup
mine has now assumed proportions
whioe will eventually plaoe that
property in the front rank of producing mines in this provinoe.
A large body of high grade free
milling ore has been opened up,
whioh alone would suffice to guarantee several years of profitable
operations. Besides this, however,
a number of pockets and seams of
ore have been encountered not in
small quartz, but of a size sufficient
to warrant their careful mining
separately from the main mass of
ore
Some idea of the value of these
pockets may be gathered from the
following assays which were made
from them, $220, $164, $644 and
$121.
This class of ore consists of
tellurides, some samples of whioh
are thickly spatered with visible
gold, whilst others, although not
actually showing the gold, when
panned out give long streamers of
fine gold.
The values quoted above are
nearly all in gold alone, with
small values in silver and oopper.
These bunohes of rich ore are
no small stringers such aa often
are found in veins of average grade
in this section, but are large enough
and in sufficient number to make
their intrinsic value overtop that
of the milling stuff although the
latter will average $20 per ton.

MISSION FOR CHAMBERLAIN
Datlra That H* Should Visit Colonl**
to Make Arrangementa
London, Dec. 17.—The Telegraph
suggests that the result of tbe reoent bye-eleotions must dispel Mr.
Balfour's doubts as to whether the
oountry is ripe for a preferential
policy, and proposes that "Mr.
Chamberlain should be invited to
proceed personally to the colonies
see what practical arrangements
can be made to secure a complete
commercial union witbin the Empire."
Granby'a Firat Dividend
YeBterday was paid a dividend
of $133,630 by the Granby Consolidated, being at the rate of one per
oent quarterly on the issued oapi-
tal of the company. This is said
to be the largest dividend ever paid
at one time by any mining oompany in British Columbia.
Spur Being Built
The epur to the Brooklyn and
Stemwinder mine at Phoenix ia
being laid.
The Winnipeg mine of Wellington camp, well known in this city,
especially through its conneolion
with Richard Plowman, an old
time Rosslander, has been closed
down through tbe serving of a writ
by the Bank of Montreal on a de
mand note for over $3,000. Altogether the mine owes some $10,000,
The olaims of labour are secured by
meohanios liens .which total some
$4,000. The mine reopened recently and was successfully shipping
ore, but the shareholders, with the
ezoeption of Mr. Plewman and a
few friends, were apparently unwilling to eubsoribe the necessary
working oapital, and foreclosure
seemed inevitable. The property
will probably again be opened up
after it has been bought, but the
shareholders will lose everything,
and manager Plewman will lose tbe
whole of his private fortune whioh
he haB sunk in the mine.
