The city oounoil distinguished
itself last night by taking up the
question of the lighting franchise
to whioh notioe to quit had been
given in a resolution by Aldermen
Daniel and Talbot. Of course the
mayor objected on the ground tbat
if notioe were to be given then the
oity would be liable for heavy
damages if the lighting where not
taken over in August next. He
forgot to point out wherein would
the Lighting oompany sustain any
damage is they oannot transfer
their franchise to any one and as
if the franchise is not taken over
tbey must necessarily be consider
ably gainers. However the plea
went and the notioe is not given.
There was a further argument that
notice need not be given until June
1. Now it is true that the agreement between the oity and the
Lighting company speaks of two
months notioe but in another plaoe
it is so worded that it is arguable
tbat six months is intended. If
the legal acumen of the oounoil is
wrong and if notioe is not given
before February 1 it is just possible
that notioe cannot be given at all.
All that was done was to ask the
Lighting oompany for an inspec
tion of their books whioh, aoording
to the agreement, need not be
acceded to until next Pebruacy.

generation of eletrio light for the
oity, demanded of the city oounoil
that he placed on an engineer's
salary and is asking $250 a month
instead of $144, bis present rate of
pay. This demand has been reserved for consideration.

The beet generals are eager to

the real crux of the seriousness of

Great Britain and America

'BETTER NEVER LATE.'
It was pleasurable yesterday
morning to note in the columns ci
our local contemporary tbat it had
awoken at last to a sense of the
oivio situation, in these words, "It
ii generally felt that the trifling
questions of policy Bhould be subverted to the larger questions that
really affect the prosperity of tbe
community and its principal iu
dustry. A oouncil in such a com
munity as Rossland is should ex
eroise some at least of the power;
ordinarily left in the hands of such
organizations as the Board ol
Trade." This iB what it say?
The meauing is somewhat occult
and the language carefully veiled
The reference is possibly to thi
vesting in the city the power ol
the water supplies, so that eacl
and all of the mines shall be en
abled to get a fair chance withou
any one playing dog in the manger
or taking advantage of the necessities of the others. Or possibly tbe
reference is to the acquirement of
the lighting franchise. If it dcet
not mean these things it is difficult
to Bay what in thunder it thinkB it
does mean. Perhaps it is of the
opinion that its writings should nol
be "subverted to" any such mean
ings. However there is af, last a
glimmer of public spirit and 'tis
better late than never' though 'tis
better never late.'
TOO GRASPING,
A oitizen of the United StateB, nn
individual named Sully, who hap
made a large fortune by gambling
in cotton, has sprang a new thing
upon his countrymen, which
should it succeed in taking hold,
will certainly not bring to him tbe
gratitude of his country. This re
suit will be more or less material
to bim, as he will feather his own
nest, according to his patriotism.
But such men aB he are apt to declare that there is no sentiment in
business. And patriotism is decidedly sentiment. The idea is to
generally advance the price of raw
ootton. This will naturally raise
the price of cotton goods. As cotton
goods are manufactured largely
the world over, those manufaoturiep
whioh are depending on their raw
material upon the United States,
will find themselves distanced in
the coma ercial s r iggle, by those
who either get their raw cotton
from other places, such as India
whioh manufactures its own raw
material, or by other nations which
have a huge protective tariff, such
ai the United States or Germany.
Great Britain will be chiefly affect
ed, and already cablegrams announce hundreds of cotton spinners
of Lancashire have been thrown
out of employment.
But the consequences? In the
first place it may be stated that
cotton is grown largely in North
China. It is chiefly shipped for
manufacture to South China. It is
difficult of freight, inasmuch as the
bales are subjected to little pressure
and thus occupy many times tlie
space of the hydraulickly pressed
bales which are shipped, for instance, from Now Orleans. It
would to be an easy thing to iu
stall the necessary machinery. But
the country is China—intensely
oonserva ive. British capital which
has looked into the business in
times past, decided against investment ou the ground of tho large
extent and expense of the operations which would be involved, in
face of the low price on raw cotton
imported from the Southern States
of the l;nion; also, in a smaller
measure, from Bombay, It will be
seen at ouco that Mr. Sully bas
given an opening for British capital which it formerly lacked in
North China. Furthermore that it
will give a tremendous impetus to
cotton raising in the Bombay presidency, relieving largely those
famine Btricken districts.
Beyond this cotton growers of
West Afrioa have been petitioning
for mouths past for a bounty from
the Imperial government to be paid
for the growing of cotton in the
newly acquired districtB iu West
Africa. Under the circumstances,
withj such a blow directly struck
at an important British trade, the
Baifour government could hardly
do a more popular thing tha n
granting such a petition. In other
words if Mr. Sully is successful the
imports of raw cotton from tbe
United States will be replaced in
the near future by imports from
India aud West Africa together
with those produced by British
merchants in Great Britain's
sphere of influence in the Yangtsze
valley. Every cloud has its silver
lining,-but Mr. Sully's is likely to
have a golden one!

CHAPTElR VII
I sometimes think it was all tbis
to do which brought Voewood under Norman notioe. But, peibapp,
it waB the slow and steady advanoe
of the invaders' power peroolating
like a rising tide into all the recesses of the land whioh drew us
into the fatal oirole of .the despoil-
ers, and not my waywardness. Be
this as it may, the result was tbe
same.
Over to the northward, a soore
of miles away, where the great road
ran east, we heard from wandering
strollers of the Normans passing
daily. Then, later, there oame in
the news budgets ot a Flemish pedlar tidings that the hungry foreigners had lioked up all the fat
meadows around the nearest town,
had hung its aldermen over the
walls, and built a tower and dungeon (after their wont) in the
middle oi it. YbbI and these
messengers of ill omen said there
were left no men of note or Saxon
blood to uphold the English oauso
—there was no proper spee.-b in
but tbe Norman—there waB no
way of wearing a tuuio but the
Norman—nothing now to swear by
but by Our Lady of Tours and
Holy St. Bridget—all Saxon wives
were in danger of kissing—and all
Saxon abbots were become barefooted monks!
Never was a oountry turned inside out so soon or or quietly jaudas
I looked over our wide, fair meadows, and upon my sweet girl and
her flaxen little ones, and thought
how already for ber 1 bad risked
my life, I could not help wondering
how soon I might have to venture
it again.
On apaoe came the outer conquest into our inner peaoe. Towns
and burghs went down, and the
hungry flames of lust and avarice
fed upon what they destroyed. All
the vales and hills the swords of
Hengist and llorsa had won, and
baptised with foemen's blood, in
the mighty names of old Norsemen
and Valhalla, were being christened anew to suit a mincing, latter
tongue. Thane and franklin uncapped them at the roadside to
these steel bound swarms of ruthless spoilers, and nothing waB
sacred, neither deed nor covenant,
neither having nor holding, whicb
ran oounter to tbe wieb.es of the
western scourges of our English
weakness,
When I thought of all tbis I was
extraordinarily ill at eaee, and, be
fore I oould settle upon bow best
to meet the danger, it came upon
us, and we were overwhelmed.
Briefly, it was thus. About ta el vo
years after the battle where Harold
had died, the Norman leader lmd>
we beard, taken it into his head to
poll us like oattle, to find the sum
and total of  our feus and  lands1
our serfs and orchards, and even of
our very selves! Now, few of us
Saxons but felt this was a certain
soheme to tax and oppress us even
more severely than the people had
been oppressed in the time of St.
Dunstan. Besides this, our free
spirits rose in scorn of being counted and weighed and muloted by
plebeian emissaries of tbe usurper,
so we murmured loud and long.

Andrew Garvey who has been
working the Home Run claim
owned by the B. C; Consolidated at
Poplar oreek, is in the oamp for a
few dayB, and is enthusiastic over
tbe new fields. He declares that
hardly too muoh oan be laid of the
wealth of the district, that nowhere
has a property been developed but
it has shown up well and that
there is bound to be a big rush in
the spring in consequence.
This report is also confirmed by
Alderman Armstrong, who is in
from Poplar where he is now located, runing the Poplar hotel.
Poplar Creek runs north into the
Lardo river whioh here runs east
and west: On the west side of the
creek at its junction with the Lardo
is situated the new oamp. Behind
it and south on the same creek are
tbe Marquis and Gilbert claims*
Aoross the oreek from the camp is
the Luoky Jaok, and directly south
of it, two or three olaims along, is
another tributary of the Lardo
river. Between tbe two rises a hog
back aseending steeply to the
mountains south of tbe camp. It
is on this hog back that the Luoky
Jack, Home Run and Swede Group
are established.
The general formation of the
country is schistose and runs east
and west. In this occurs heavy
veins of free milling ore, whioh are
low grade. Cutting this formation
almost at right angles is a series of
smaller veinB running from 10
inches to nine feet which are of
quartz and whioh are also free mill
ing, running from $5 a ton to fabu
lous values. These are thought to
be true fissure veins. They are of
quartz and as tbey are harder than
the surrounding country rock are
thought, by Mr. Garvy, to be permanent, going down to depth, having arisen thenoe.

WIN AGAINST C. P. R.
New Railway   Into Vancouver is an Accom-
plisee Fact
Vancouver, Dec. 30.—This has
been a strenuous day in local railway circles. After many months
of careful work, of wearying negotiations, and of continued opposition the Vancouver, Westminster
it Yukon is in the oity as a rail
way. It has taken form, its tracks
are laid to False creek, its con
struction machine may be found
on Grandview, and it will run itB
first train over the new road
today.
But the preparations for the
event have had to proceed through,
stirring soenes. A new C. P. R
writ applying for an injunction,
with three stolen cars, a torn up
track and a hastily installed crossing are but incidents of tbe day's
proceedings.
There has for some time been
tense feeling around False creek,
and every minute has been counted
valuable. The big track laying
machine, which is being used to
put down the steel from New West-
mister to Vanoouver, is inside of
the city limits and this evening
will cross the track of the B. C
electric suburban line. The. dia
mond would have been put in last
night, but the mechanics who
were making it failed to get through
in time and a delay of a few hours
occurred.
It is fast work, but it is a case of
have to. The charter requires 'hat
trains be running into Vancouver
by tomorrow. Between city injunctions and C. P. R. injunctions, the
delays are such that now at the
last minute 50 men on the steel
gang with a traok laying machine,
a train orew and 35 men on the
bridge gang are working like beavers to beat out old Father Time and
fill all legal requirements before
another year dawns.
