The principal matter last night
before the city oouncil was the
consideration of a resolution giving
notioe to the lighting oompany of
the intention of the oity to resume
its franchise at the end of tbe pre*
sent oontraot expiring on August
1 next. The mover and seconder
were aldermen Daniel and
Talbot respectively. At tha
request of the mayor, the mover
and seconder being consenting
parties, tbe matter was laid over
for consideration of a oommittee
whioh is yet to be appointed.
Tbe notioe of resolution was
given on October 28. It was then
discovered that the original contract bad been inadvertently taken
away by the late oity solicitor.
This was recovered from him over
a month ago and has been in the
offices ever sinoe. To read this
oontraot, whioh, from his remarks,
the mayor did not seem to know at
band and on hand for several
weeks past, was the reason of the
request made, as assigned. The
excuse seems bare enough.
In conjunction with this ths
mayor and Alderman Dunlop introduced a resolution determining
to oomplete the water record on
behalf of the city on Trail oreek for
for power to run an eleotrio lighting plant. The oity engineer has
been relieved from other duties
to go into the whole question thoroughly and report. As
notioe to the Lighting oompany
has been deliberately delay it is
hard to credit this resolution with
good faith.
If the oity has not money to enter into a contract with Bonnington Falls, Cascade, or tbe oity of
Nelson for power it is dlffioolt to
see how it ls going to erect an expensive plant on Trail creek to
oreat it especially when the water
reoord applied for is far in exoeei of
the capacity in the oreek.

the band consider that, in view of
the circumstances of music in this

A SALOON TRUST-
A curious movement, which bas
proved extremely successful, lias
been on foot in the Old Country
for the past year or two which bas
reaohed suoh proportions that it
haB elicited a nod of approval from
that Olympian, the London Times
That paper says truly enough that
for many ages it has been accept'
rd, both in sacred and proface
literature, 'that wine maketh glad
the heart ol man. Now temperance organizations, being repressive, fail beoause they do not recognize this truth that mankind,
sufficiently sorrowful on this Sorrowful Star, to quote the Corelli,
wish to be made glad. Now the
saloon trust, to which reference
is here made, is conducted on business principles and makes the bar
into a place where food and non
alcoholic drinks are sold, together
with spirits, wine and beer. The
profits go to the trust, which instantly starts another place on
similar lines. The profits pay a
fair dividend to the investors and
are then used for charitable purposes. In other words the
trust   has   recognized    that   man
wants  to   be  amused.   The poor
1
man has no club.   His saloon is
practically  made into a club for
him, and  is   conducted   on   such
lines that his female folk may accompany him within.   Now apply
this  to Rossland.    Nobody wants
to start a saloon trust, but if the
temperance movement is ever to be
a success, some amusement  roust
be provided   for   our   young   folk
(and old folk) than merely standing at a bar and guzzling.   Tuere
being few amusements here, people save their money and spend it

seat, and has been so for some
time. The late member had a
majority of 761. Now if this majority can be converted into a
Conservative majority, the cam
paign issue being tbe fiscal policy
of Chamberlain, the supporters of
the ex-Colonial secretary .may well
be of the opinion that victory is
already in their grasp, and that
the final gun of the fall, fired recently at Leeda, will perhaps be
the final gun of the war. But
however Ashburton may turn, one
thing is oertain, which iB that
Chamberlain will proseoute his
campaign right up to a general
election, and past tbat if necessary,
to a second or a third.
I
ELECTION   FORECASTS
Probable Provincial Candidates for the Dominion Election.
ENGLISH BYE-ELECTIONS
There have been four bye elections pending in the Old Country,
two of which have already been
decided. Three of thom were
hopelessly Conservative, while the
fourth was a Liberal seat, yet Liberals who have been identifying
themselves with the Free Fooders
and the Free Importers, despite
the fact that many of these were to
be found in the opposite ranks,
have been so stirred up by the
malevolence of the malignant Joe
of Brummagen that they have
fought them all, and so far with
disastrous results. The issue haB
been the fiscal campaign, and there
remains no doubt but that the
laboring men of England are day
by day more and more Biding in
with Chamberlain. But as far as
the Chamberlainites are concerned,
they cannot be satsified with tnese
results. The orowning mercy, to
quote Cromwell, will be a victory
in the Ashburton division of
Devonshire.    This' ie  a
It is pretty generally understood,
sayB the Nelson News, that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier will make a defin-
announcemsnt in regard to the
date of the elections on the first of
the new year.
In this province only one nomi
nation haB been made as yet, 11. G
Macpherson, M. P., is the Liberal
nominee for re-election in Vancouver. The Conservatives will probably put np George Cowan.
In Victoria neither party has
fixed the date for its nominating
convention, but this will probably
be done early in the new year
The proapective Liberal candidate
is Mayor McCandless, whilst
Frank Barnard and ex-Attorney-
General MoPhillips will make a
strong bid for the Tory nomination.
In the Nanaimo constituency,
the sitting member, Ralph Smith,
will receive the Liberal nomination, and bis Conservative opponent will be pioked from among
the following: Clive Phillips
Wolley, D. M. Eberts, Andrew
Haslam, ex-M. P. and Mayor Man-
eon, of Nanaimo city.
For the new constituency of
Comox-Atlin, William Sloan, Liberal organizor for Vaucouver Island
will be the government candidate.
Who the Tori (ib will select is very
much in doubt. D. W. Clifford,
M. L. A., is spoken of, but Premier
McBride oannot afford to let him
leave the legislature.
It is expected that Aulay Morrison will again seek tbe suffrages
of the New Westminster electors,
and it is on the cards that he may
again have for an opponent, ex-
Lieutenant-Governor Edgar Dewdney.
The nominating convention of
both parties in the Yale-Cariboo
constituency take place the second
week in Ji nuary. There ere three
candidates for the Liberal nomination, John D. Swanson. of Kamloops; DeniB Murphy, of Ashcroft,
and Duncan Ross, of Greenwood.
The Conservative choice lies between Mayor Burrill, of Grand
Forks, and J. T. Robinson, of Kam
loops, Conservative organizer for
the interior.
For the Kootenay district it is
practically a foregone conclusion
that W. A, Galliher will receive
the unanimous endorsement of the
Liberals for the party nomination
The convention will be held in
Nelson on the 12th of Januaiy.
The Conservatives meet in Nelson
on the 6th of January, and their
choice will be between John Houston, M. L. A., and  ex-Lieutenant-
Liberal Governor Mackintosh.

CHAPTER VI (Continued>
All this was very wonderful, yet
presently we were chatting as
though there were naught to marvel at. Many were the things we
spoke of, many were the wonders
that she hinted at an 1 as she went
my ouriosity blazed up space.
'And, fair Prinoess,' I said presently, 'tnrner of javelins, favorer
of mortals, is it then within the
power of suoh as yourself to rule
the destiny of us material ones?'
'Not so; else, Phoenician, you
were not here!'
'This made me a little uncomfortable, but, nothing daunted, 1
looked the strangest visitor that
ever paid a midnight visit full in
the face, and persisted. 'Tell dop,
then, you bright reflection of her 1
loved, how seems this tinsel show
of life upon its over side? Is il
destiny or man that is master?
How looks the flow of oircum
stances to you?—to ub, you will
remember, it is vague, inezpli
cable'.
'You ask me more than I oan
Bay,' bhe Answered, "but so far I
will go—you, material, live substantially, an d before you lies
unchecked the illimitable spaces of
existenoe. Of all theBe you are
certain heir.' '
'Speak on!' I oried, for now and
then her voioe and attention flagged, 'And is there any rule or
sequence in this life of ours—is it
far you to guide or meud our happenings?'
'No, Phoenician 1 You are yourselves the true forgers of the chains
tbat bind you, and that initial
'prenticeship you serve there on
your world is ruled by the aggregate of your actions. I tell you,
Tynan,' she exolaimed, with something as much like warmth as
oould come from such a hazy air
stirred body—'I tell you nothing
was ever said or done but was
quite immortal: all your little goings and comings, all your deeds
and misdeeds, all the myriad leaves
of spoken things that have ever
come upon the forests ofspeeoh, all
the rain drops of action that have
gone to make the boundless ocean
of human history, are on record.
You Bhake you bead, and oannot
understand? PerhapB I should
not wonder at it.'
'And have all these things left
a record upon the great books of
life, and is it given to the beings of
the air to refer lo them, even as
yonder hermit turns back his
scrolls of history and finds secreted
on his yellow ve'lums the things of
long ago?'
AMONG ROSoLAND SHOPS.
Merchant* of the Cam? are Rising to
the Occasion
[To  be continued.]
Make your friends a present of a
nice box of cigars for Xmas. We
know the best.   Crow & Morris.
P. Burns & company, appealing
to the inner man have laid in a
oarload of turkeys and geeBe so
that none may go short of holiday
fare. Like other merobants Manage Qeorge Urquhart has recognized that there is more money than
usual floating around and in consequence has stocked bis shop with
all kinds of things to make good
the inner man. Paying more attention to outward adornment the
Crescent has laid in a stock of
feminine belongings, ribbons and
laces (what our grandfathers used
to oall 'fallals') whioh with the
more substantial wearing apparel,
make a very nice show indeed in a
tastefully decorated store.
Among tbe grooers Embleton,
Paulson and Fox are all making
fine showings. Paulson has in
particular a pretty window,
Embleton has a speoial
stock of toothsome candies
while the attraction of the mistletoe will doubtless Bend many a
customer to Fox. Indeed the
store of deJicacies which the groceries are oarrying nowadays is
speaking evidence of the growing
prospeiity of the camp. When
times are bard the grocerers don't
spread muoh beyond the vr ritable
necessaries of life but when appearances brighten there are lots
of little luxuries, muoh appreciated
in lhe home, whioh can be purchased from these enterprising
merchants.
Boundary   Shipments
Figuring on h baeis of F^   $6 per
ton value, the tonnage of the low-

The oity council dealt with [a
variety of important matters last
evening, two of which, the water
and the light, have been recorded
elsewhere in this issue. Besides
these poinis the question of the appeal of the city re the Fire Limi
bylaw was gone into and a refund
of the money placed by the mayor
in the bands of the oity solicitor
for such an appeal was demanded
by the counoil. The mayor scolded and threatened a veto, and the
city solicitor urged that the cost
would not be great and the validity
of the bylaw ought to be tested
forthwith. Alderman Daniel
stated that the proper oourse to
pursue was the introduction of
amendments to the bylaw, if it
was not sufficiently wide in its
scope. On the question going to a
voet the mayor found that he had
but one supporter—Alderman Dunlop.
Another fight arose over the payment of the salaries for tbis month

was also opposed by the mayor,
but was passed over his head.

tramway over an mused portion
of Kootenay avenue, was read for
a first time. A letter was reoeived
from J. W. Robinson asking consideration and delay, as he was of
the opinion that the building of
such a tramway would injure} his
property.
